Re-Release Review! Soulfire (Nightwing #1) Juliette Cross!

 

 

In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.

Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.

 

As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.

Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.

 


The first book in the Nightwing series is an exciting and sexy read with solid, daring characters that draw readers in and hold them hostage. Jessen and Lucius not only have the age old problem of crossing cultural lines and prejudices to keep the apart but Jessen is duty-bound to honor a pre-arranged marriage to a man she despises. The emotion that takes place during Jessen and Lucius story is turbulent, but the magnetic attraction between them is electrical and has sparks flying from first meeting.

 

Thrilling and anticipation building excitement keep readers glued to the pages as Jessen defies her father and decides to reach for her what her heart desires even while Lucius tries to deny what his dragon already knows as truth while Jessen’s family and jerk fiancé do their best to keep them apart. The story is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout introducing a very intriguing world full of hybrid dragons that make for a different kind of dragon read and while I feel that the story could have benefited from being a bit longer, I was quite taken with Lucius and Jessen’s story and I am looking forward to visiting this exciting world again.

Release Day Review! Touch the Sky (Mated By Fate #2) Kari Cole!

 

 

Keep to yourself. Focus on the job.

 

Sheriff Vaughn Ellis’s very existence as a rare double-shifter defies the natural order. It also makes it extremely difficult for him to get close to anyone. To trust anyone. It’s nothing Vaughn can’t handle, until a seductively sweet woman arrives in Black Robe, and suddenly he can’t think about anything but her.

 

The product of a witch/werewolf pairing, Hannah Cochran gets the odd-wolf-out thing. But when she uncovers a major threat to the lycanthrope world, she finds herself playing nice with the sexy sheriff. Abiding by the law isn’t usually Hannah’s style, but nothing catches her breath quite like the commanding attraction she feels toward Vaughn.

 

Working closely together only intensifies their fated connection, making it impossible to deny—or resist. Hannah fears that getting involved puts Vaughn in danger. But when she becomes the target, it’s Vaughn who’ll have to decide which rules he’s willing to break to save the woman he can’t live without.

 

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise : all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

 

This book is approximately 89,000 words

The second story in the Marked By Fate series is an exciting and touching romance that grabs readers attention and refuses to let go. Sheriff Vaughn Ellis as an eagle – wolf hybrid intrigued readers in Hunt the Moon and now he’s enthralling them along with the witch – wolf hybrid Hannah Cochran who’s in major trouble and sinking fast. These strong, bold characters are easily connected to and reader can’t help but feel for them as they struggle with their emotional and trust issues, the intense situation, prejudices and their sizzling attraction. Fate won’t stand back and let them ignore the chemistry so it builds to red hot proportions that causes their connection to intensify as they work end up having to work closely together if want to survive.

 

Thrills and adrenaline pumping suspense keeps readers on the edge as Hannah tries to stay ahead of the bad guys while trying to discover their secrets so that she can stop their evil deeds. Vaughn and Hannah’s relationship adds to the tension filled, fast paced and smooth flowing plot that has few surprising twists along the way that keeps everyone on their tender hooks. The social interactions between the pack members also adds drama and emotional turmoil as well as strife to the story and the author does a fantastic job of building the atmosphere of the story that readers can practically feel all the strain and turbulence that spills from the pages of this story which also means that they feel the good emotions as well. So, far Kari Cole is promising to be another favorite for me as I have become quite captivated by the world and the members of this pack.

Release Day Review! Hunt the Moon (Marked by Fate #1) Kari Cole!
Hunt the Moon - Kari Cole

 

 

Who’d think to bring silver bullets to a wedding? When Isabelle “Izzy” Meyers arrives in Montana and discovers her human foster brother is marrying into the local werewolf pack, she wishes she’d brought an arsenal. Werewolves can’t be trusted, and Izzy should know…she is one. 

 

Luke Wyland never planned on becoming an Alpha. He’s still navigating how to protect the pack from the rogue threat that’s been hunting in his territory, claiming his father as one of their victims. Yet the moment Luke lays eyes on Izzy, something primal takes root. Finding a mate who wants nothing to do with him is a complication he doesn’t need, but letting Izzy go isn’t an option.

 

After a childhood marred by shifter violence, Luke is everything Izzy was raised to hate. So then why does being with him feel so intensely right? With a thinning pack to defend, Luke knows what he has to do: embolden Izzy to unleash her true nature—or risk losing everything. 

 

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

 

This book is approximately 95,500 words

I just visited a brand new world by debut author Kari Cole. This promising new shifter world – Marked by Fate – is well developed with strong, enthralling characters that easily draw readers in and invite them to stay. Kari Cole brought her world to vibrant life with well written descriptions that made it easy to picture the each and every scene as it happens and made it easy for the readers to imagine they are part of the story.

 

The hero and heroine, Luke and Izzy, of the first book – Hunt the Moon – are easily connected to and have a strong electrical chemistry that sizzles from every page. Their romance is rocky and full of emotional turbulence since Izzy has a very troubled and disturbing past that tugs at reader’s heartstrings but makes Izzy fear Werewolves despite the fact that she is one. Izzy’s characters is definitely a troubled one and the author did a great job of showing readers the past that caused such emotional issues that readers can certainly understand why she is the way she is and it also shows just how strong Izzy is and Luke is sexy and all alpha but with a heart that clearly has what it takes to help Izzy overcome her past and move toward a happily ever after.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of twists that keep readers on their toes, lots of action to get the adrenaline pumping and lots of suspense to keep readers glued to the pages wondering what will happen next and that’s not to mention that the bad guys have quite a few surprises for this pack as well so there is never a dull moment to be found in this exciting and thrilling story.

 

I was fascinated by Izzy and Luke’s story and was captivated by the other characters in this pack as well, so I will impatiently await the release of Vaughn’s story – Touch the Sky - which will be releasing this fall.

 

Note: Hunt the Moon has explict sex scenes, memories of child abuse, references to rape.

New Release Review! Day Reaper (Night Bloods #4) Melody Johnson!
Day Reaper - Melody Johnson

 

 

On the brink of death, Cassidy DiRocco demands that New York City’s master of the supernatural, Dominic Lysander, transform her—reporter, Night Blood, sister, human—into the very creature she’s feared and fought against for months: a vampire. The pain is brutal, she'll risk the career she’s worked so hard to achieve, and her world will never be the same. But surviving is worth any risk, especially when it means gaining the strength to fight against Jillian Allister, the sister who betrayed Dominic, attacked Cassidy, and is leading a vampire uprising that will destroy all of New York City. . .

When she awakens, however, Cassidy realizes the cost of being transformed might be more than she was willing to sacrifice. The overwhelming senses, the foreign appearance of her new body, and the lethal craving for blood are unrecognizable and unacceptable. But if Cassidy hopes to right the irrevocable wrongs that Jillian and her army of the Damned have wrought on New York City, she’ll need to not only accept her new senses, body and cravings, but wield them in her favor. 

Irresistible and enigmatic as Dominic is, he no longer has command over the city or its vampires. Only Cassidy has the connections to convince the humans, Day Reapers, and the few vampires still loyal to Dominic to join forces, and maybe, if Dominic can accept her rising power over the coven he once commanded for the past several hundred years, the two of them together might forge a bond more potent than history has ever known. . . 

 

 

Day Reaper is full of exciting events and thrilling twists and turns that keeps readers on the edge of their seats along with some electrifying chemistry and sizzling attraction that heats up the pages. All of the characters are fascinating and have strong personalities which the author brings to full vibrant life which makes it easy for the reader to become caught up in their story. Cassidy and Dominic are especially charismatic and really hold readers hostage as they try to hold their world as well as their relationship together during a world that has fallen into chaos.

 

Anticipation continuously builds throughout the story with lots of twists and turns keeping readers on the edge of their seat as Cassidy and Dominic fight bad guys and try to rescue some characters who may or may not be on their side as well as dealing with betrayals and emotional turmoil that stems from choices being made and of course all of that adds to the chaos and turbulence of the events taking place.  

 

Despite not having read all the books, I certainly enjoyed the thrilling and exciting conclusion to the Night Blood series from beginning to end and the events that take place in this story as well as the characters have really caught my attention and ensure that I will be reading the other books. This is the final book in the series, though, so I feel that I must strongly suggest that the four book series be read in sequential order because I felt as though I missed out on a few things and that the events leading up to these were extremely important, but I was able to understand what was taking place and why without having read them, I just feel it would have made the book even better.

 

 

 

Day Reaper is the 4th & final book in the Night Blood series.

New Release Review! Hot and Badgered (Honey Bear Chronicles #1) Shelly Laurenston!
Hot and Badgered - Shelly Laurenston

 

 

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.
 
Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

 

 

The first book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which takes place in the Pride Stories world will keep you in stitches with a fun filled and action packed romantic adventure.

 

As usual Shelly Laurenston provides such a fun read that I just can put the book down until I have wrung every last chuckle from every page.  The zany and wonderful characters of her shifter worlds are always strong, compelling and full of snark while they tie readers in knots with laughter, they always make it easy for the readers relate to and become captivated by each and every one. So, needless to say Charlie and Berg stole the show in Hot and Badgered with their sizzling but prickly chemistry as they entertained readers with their quick witted dialogue and funtabulous but dangerous attitudes but don’t think that’s all these characters are about because they also some deep seated emotional issues that while they add to the fun also add depth to their personalities and captivate readers.

 

The fast paced and super charged plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with lots of thills and intrigue and there is no predicting what will happen next. There are several action filled events that gets the adrenaline pumping but also provide some chuckles and since there is lots of hated family members and plenty of enemies, there is never a dull moment to be found in this electrifying story.

 

I have been waiting very impatiently for this story to be released as I love Shelly Laurenston’s books (p.s. I also love her alter ego – G.A. Aiken’s stories as well) and let me tell you that I was quite pleased with Hot and Badgered, she introduces new characters to her fascinating world and maintains her diabolical use of snark and fun to keep readers thoroughly entertained and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

Hot and Badgered is the 1st book in the Honey Badger Chronicles which is a spinoff of the Pride Stories.

 

Hot and Badgered is available in print or ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Hudson   BaM   IndieBound   GPlay   Kobo   eBooks   iBooks
