Emerald Flame (The Flame Series Book 6) - Caris Roane

 This one was very much like the last one, A Wolf's Love. Warren is an injured wolf who doesn’t trust witches and yet falls for one. I could have really used more character development. There was so much great potential for emotional tension, strife, and having to overcome trust issues. They would have a moment of strong 'can’t trust her or her motives' but in the next breath he is trusting her with his life or kissing her. There was no drawn out, slow build-up to trust. I needed more development between the characters; their relationship could have moved slowly and through fighting the villain learned to trust the other or even moments when they could possibly go their separate ways because of insensitive comments or doubts to then come back together. It was rushed, 'will he, won’t he?' Will she leave, should she leave, etc. 

I did enjoy their story beyond the desire for more character development. The villain and conflict was strong and it was an easy read. I do enjoy Caris Roane's take on paranormal romance and this story was entertaining and enjoyable.  My personal complaint is just me being nit-picky about what I want in characters.  The story was overall good and I look forward to more from the Flame universe.A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

The Emerald Lily
The Emerald Lily (Vampire Blood Book 4) - Juliette Cross
In the first book (The Black Lily) we were introduced to Vilhelmina or Mina. Mina was the bride for Marius, but wasn't. In the last book (The Emerald Lily), we learned that Vilhelmina, (Mina) was in a bloodless sleep, a vampire form of torture. 
Luckily, I didn't have long to wait as Mina is rescued by Mikhail right at the beginning. I liked Mina's re-awakening, for lack of a better word. She grew from a sheltered, naive girl to a strong independent woman. I liked that she didn't like who she was and became someone she did like. I liked the moment when she claimed what was hers by right. And, yeah, she helped win the day. 
Mikhail is a good match for her. I liked that the rebellion, from book 1, continued to grow and this book concludes that rebellion. I am sad since I liked this series and wanted to learn more about Grant, Dane, Katya, and Riker (it would have been nice for them to get their HEAs too).

New Release Review! Emerald Flame (Flame # 6) by Caris Roane
Emerald Flame (The Flame Series Book 6) - Caris Roane

 

 

An alpha wolf sizzling with storm power. An invisible witch. An evil wizard who wants them both dead. 

The air felt wrong, like a thousand tiny needles pressing into the flesh of Alex Warren’s arms and shoulders. 
He sat in his Border Patrol SUV in front of the Savage Territory station. His shift was over for the night, but he wasn’t ready to head in just yet. 
Something was going down. He just didn’t know what… 

~ EMERALD FLAME, A Paranormal Romance 

A witch scarred him… 

Warren couldn’t trust witches. One had tried to kill him with her poisoned spell. 

Though he survived, he was left badly disfigured and blind in one eye. 

When Kiara, a beautiful witch, begins to heal him, he finds himself craving her. But his prejudice against her kind runs deep. 

As an evil wizard attacks Savage Territory, can Warren set aside his prejudice, or will he lose his pack, and his territory, forever? 

Wolves hate the secretive nature of Elegance Territory… 

Kiara never meant to fall for a wolf. 

But from the moment she met Warren, her heart beat only for him. 

She also knew he could never go for her. A witch had almost killed him once. 

When a vile wizard makes a play for Savage Territory, and Warren needs her help, their relationship climbs to dizzying heights. 

Yet the scars he bears tells her she can only be a passing flame. 

Can she protect her heart? Or will the passionate affair leave her forever desolate? 

EMERALD FLAME, A Paranormal Romance, is a passionate, tender, standalone romance set in the Flame Series and the world of Five Bridges. 

 

 

I always have an exciting time when I visit Five Bridges and the wonderful characters that reside there and Emerald Flame is no exception, in fact I would go so far as to say that it just may be my favorite book so far. Kiara and Warren captures my attention with their sizzling attraction, tempestuous emotions and the thrilling danger that the couple finds themselves facing.

 

As always Caris Roane brings her characters to bright, vivid like that makes it easy for the readers to get to know them and in this case to empathize with their emotional worries which make the couple vulnerable. The romance is a bit rocky while the passions sizzles with vibrant intensity between them and their enemy keeps them hopping with some thrilling action and suspense while the couple fight to stay alive and enact daring rescues that really get the adrenaline pumping. The alter side of this world adds such thrilling spice to the characters that readers can only guess at what might happen next not only in the action of the story, but the romance as well.

 

Warren and Kiara’s electrifying chemistry leaps off the pages and the readers become engrossed in the story right off the bat as the couple ponder their situation (sorry no spoilers) and the story just keeps getting better as the suspense builds and thrills keep coming ensuring that readers keep turning the pages.

 

I was completely wowed by Warren and Kiara’s story and I will be waiting impatiently until I can visit the Five Bridges world again.

 

 

 

Emerald Flame is #6 in the Flame series!

The Mistletoe Misstep

Nocturne Falls has another heart about to be broken why? Well since her sister Emerald

Well maybe but not so easily. Enter one mother who wants to fix her husbands money issues, and

Can love truly find a way out of this disaster? Who will be there in the end? Well grab your copy and find out.

Loved this short, but really funny, and romantic story.

The Deception of the Emerald Ring By Lauren Willig $1.99
The Deception of the Emerald Ring - Lauren Willig

Harvard grad student Eloise Kelly has gotten into quite a bit of trouble since she started spying on the Pink Carnation and the Black Tulip-two of the deadliest spies to saunter the streets of nineteenth-century England and France. 

Not only has she unearthed secrets that will rearrange history, she's dallied with Colin Selwick and sought out a romantic adventure all her own. Little does she know that she's about to uncover another fierce heroine running headlong into history...

In June 1803, Letty Alsworthy attempts to prevent her sister’s midnight elopement—only to be accidentally whisked away herself. The scandal forces her into a hasty marriage with Geoffrey Pinchingdale-Snipe, who then decamps immediately to help the Pink Carnation quash a ring of Irish rebels led by the Black Tulip. Not to be outdone, Letty steals away to the Emerald Isle herself, ready to learn a thing or two about espionage—and never imagining she might learn a few things about love along the way.
