Review! Curse Across Time by Shelley Munro!
Curse Across Time - Shelley Munro

 

 

Life is a chariot race for Marc Angelo and Tarquin Navona. Friends, rivals and rock stars of Circus Maximus in ancient Rome, they wow the fans with their daring driving and take their choice of lovers. A fine life indeed—if Marc weren’t harboring feelings for Tarquin. It’s difficult to behave normally when he craves physical contact with his friend’s muscular body, but Marc resists, too afraid of losing Tarquin entirely.

 

He needn’t have worried. Fate has plans for them. Very long-term plans…

When a powerful sorcerer catches Marc and Tarquin with his wife, he curses them to imprisonment in stone. Centuries pass, and Marc’s love and lust for Tarquin only increase. His friend doesn’t have a clue, but that’s the least of their problems. They have no idea how to escape their predicament—and may be doomed to spend eternity cursed.

 

Inside Scoop: Marc and Tarquin take a brief dip into M/F/M ménage waters. They discover quickly enough they should’ve contained their lust to each other.

 

This book was previously published under the title Stoned.

 

 

Curse Across Time is an charming and passionate erotic romance with sexy gladiators that takes across time. Marc and Tarquin are two strong, compelling character that easily capture readers’ attention and draws them into their story. The relationship between these two is sweet but not without its problems both emotional and physical, since they are imprisoned in stone for centuries. The plot is fast paced and smooth and while the short side keeps readers captivated from the very beginning.

 

Curse Across Time is a delightful and sensual read that is perfect when only have a short time to yourself or when you just need a quick and passionate hit of romance.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world. Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Too Many Curses by A. Lee Martinez
Too Many Curses - A. Lee Martinez

TITLE:  Too Many Curses

 

AUTHOR:  A. Lee Martinez

 

DESCRIPTION: 

"Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, the wizard transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. His halls are filled with his collection of fallen heroes and defeated villains.

It’s Nessy’s duty to tend this castle. It’s a lot of work, but she takes pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel. Nessy finds herself surrounded by monsters, curses, a door that should never be opened, and one very deadly dark wizardess.

Nessy doesn’t have might or magic on her side; she’s just a kobold: short, furry, and sensible. It would be smarter to walk away, but taking care of the castle is Nessy’s job, and that’s just what she intends to do.

If only she could find time to polish the silver while beating back the forces of darkness.
"

 

______________________________

 

A light-hearted and amusing stand-alone fantasy novel, with a whole cast of fanciful and horrifying characters, and of course, loveable, sensible and responsible Nessy.

Release Week Review! In Name Only (The McKenna Legacy #8) Patricia Rosemoor!
In Name Only - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Myth has it that Caillech lives in the cabochons of her jewels and takes revenge on anyone who wears what is hers—the reason the owner hired jewelry designer Flanna McKenna to make copies. Even so, the woman was murdered and the jewels disappeared. Michael Eagan is hired to catch a thief—possibly Flanna herself if her late client’s son is believed. Flanna agrees to Michael’s idea of a mock marriage as they set out to seek a Traveler who may be the real thief. What starts as an arrangement soon turns into something hotter, but Flanna knows finding the jewels before Beltane is critical, for if any woman wears the jewels on that magic night, Caillech will free herself and return to corporeal form with the power of the sorceress...

 


In Name Only” is a delightfully mysterious addition to “The McKenna Legacy” series that pulls readers in and refuses to let go.

 

Flanna McKenna’s client has been murdered and the cursed jewelry has been stolen and some are blaming Flanna for the theft but with time running out, Flanna joins forces with Michael Eagan, a PI hired to catch the jewel thief, in order to catch the real thief and stop an evil sorceress from reawakening.

 

These two strong, bewitching characters easily draw readers into their story as their arrangement gets hotter but the relationship stays on a rocky slope with lots of emotional turmoil due to secrets, legacies, curses and pressure as they run out of time to catch the thief. Michael and Flanna’s romance may be rocky, but the sizzling attraction burns hotter with every turn on of the page.

 

Suspense and spine chilling mystery keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat throughout this fast paced plot full of intrigue, betrayals and a bit of the paranormal with curses and a sorceress trying to rise through cursed jewelry. The readers can’t help but become caught up in the chase as Michael and Flanna pretend to be married while looking for thief especially as the author paints such vivid imagery with her well written scenes that readers can easily picture the scenery and feel the atmosphere of the story.

 

The McKenna Legacy” series is a wonderful variety of stories as each one presents readers with passionate romances and wonderful characters with each story having its own unique elements but centered on a magical legacy that adds a bit of wonder and flair to the story.

Excerpt:
“Flanna McKenna, wait a moment.”
Pulse thudding, she stopped and demanded, “And what is it you would be wanting?”
“To talk. About your work for Bridget Rafferty.”
“Unless you represent the authorities, which I doubt with that accent—” he was obviously an American “—I have nothing to say to you.” How would a complete stranger from another land know about her work?
“Michael Eagan, Beacon Hill Investigations.” He flipped open his identification. “It seems your Mrs. Rafferty was the third murder connected to the theft of antique Celtic jewelry in the last month, the first having been in Boston.”
“The third?” Flanna’s mind whirled. “Of course, the other pieces…”
“So you do know something about the murders.”
The way he said it put up Flanna’s back. Another person who thought she was guilty of something? Though she wanted in the worst way to tell him to leave, she couldn’t do it just yet, not until she got the details. She’d not only experienced bad vibes from the pieces she’d replicated, but she’d also had visions of several historical deaths connected to the collection, as well.
She hesitated too long. The front door flew open and there was her mother coming at them, pushing the silver-streaked dark hair from her still pretty face, which was lit by a big welcoming smile.
“You didn’t say a thing about bringing a date, Flanna,” Delia McKenna said, giving her daughter a hug and kiss on the cheek. “And isn’t he a handsome boyo.”
“Ma, please—”
Michael smiled in return and a dimple popped in his right cheek. “Why, thank you, Mrs. McKenna.”
“An American, is it?”
“Irish-American. Michael Eagan. I can see where your daughter gets her beauty.”
Flanna gaped as the private investigator turned on the charm and took her mother’s hand. Her mother actually giggled.
“We’ll be so pleased to have you as our guest.”
“Give us a minute,” Flanna said, biting the inside of her cheek when her mother raised her eyebrows and smiled before retreating to the house. She counted silently to three, then faced Michael. “What do you think you’re doing?”
“Trying to be pleasant to your mother.”
“Now she thinks you and I are—are—”
“Lovers?”
“I was going to say together!”
“You have a problem with intimacy?” One dark eyebrow shot up in challenge.
“I have a problem with you. Perhaps you should leave now and we can meet back in town later.”
“You realize if I don’t come inside with you, you’ll have to explain why.”
He had a point.

Release Day Review! Ram Wild (Ares Cursed #2 / Zodiac Shifters) Decadent Kane!
Ram Wild - Decadent Kane

 

 

A nymph outcast tied to the land…


Echo is a curvy nymph, the black sheep of her kind. She doesn’t steal men. She even cut herself off from most of the world, except her forest. And Fahd, a magic eater, is consuming the essence within her trees. There’s only one way to stop him, the golden fleece. It took her nearly a year to get her hands on the fleece. And not even a day for the sexy ram shifter, Jace, to find her. However, she won’t be giving the fleece over lightly. Echo’s determined to give him the fight of his immortal life, but she’s worried it’s her own attraction she has to control.


A ram shifter cursed by Aries to never stay in one place…


Jace Argo is an Aries Guardian with one task; protect the mythical golden fleece. When the fleece is stolen right from under his nose, Jace traipses into the forest after the thief. He didn’t expect to run into a raven-haired nymph. He has four days before his curse forces him to leave town with or without the fleece. He will pull out every arsenal in his box of male charms to get what he wants.


A stolen mythical fleece brings them together, everything else will tear them apart.



This book stands alone within the series.

 

 

Ram Wild is a fun and adventurous romance that brings spice to the reader’s life. Everyone that reads the Zodiac Shifters series knows that there are lots of shifter variety to be found in the series and that each book is enhanced by the Zodiac mythology with each author’s books having their own unique elements that make them even more enjoyable for the readers.

 

Decadent Kane’s Ram Wild certainly has all of the above and while the story is full of suspense and thrills that keep readers on the edge of their seats with a pretty scary evil that needs to be vanquished and an unpredictable romance to sweeten the story, this book also has a ‘quest’ feel to the story that brings in the fun and adventure that I mentioned above which certainly spices things up.

 

Jace and Echo are strong, captivating characters that had me enthralled from the very beginning and held me hostage to the very end and I can’t wait to read more books in the Ares Cursed series of the Zodiac Shifters. Did I mention that I really love the Ares, curses, and ram shifters elements of the story because it is so very different from other stories and is in fact the first book that I have read about ram shifters.

 

 

 

Ram Wild is the 2nd book in the Ares Cursed series and part of the Zodiac Shifters series!

 

You can also visit the Zodiac Shifters website to find out more about this fascinating series and what books are available.

 

Ram Wild is available in ebook at:
