Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings
Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings - Philip Reeve,Jennifer James,Susan Griscom,Tami Lund,Gwen Knight,Kristen Strassel,Michelle Reid,Julia Mills,Ever Coming,Rebecca Rivard,Skye Jones,Rosalie Redd
Welcome to the world of the Blood Courtesan. If you are not aware, this is a series by Michelle Fox that starts with Reborn: Myra. This box set is all set in the same world, but with a multitude of stories by different authors, all putting their slant on Michelle Fox's world.
I won't review each story separately, instead my review is of the box set as a whole. As with all box sets, some of the stories stand out more than others. HOWEVER, they are all good! I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. If I had to choose a favourite though, on pain of being bitten (and not in a good way), then I would choose Concealed: Lexi by Rosalie Redd. This story simply grabbed me as I do so love a tortured hero and strong heroine. This story ticked all the right boxes for me.
Every story in this collection was exceptionally written, with a multitude of characters and situations. There should be enough to keep everyone happy! There were no editing or grammatical errors in any of the stories that disrupted my reading flow. I loved how each story was completely different from the others, just being linked by the Blood Courtesans.
For those that haven't yet stepped into this world, I can highly recommend it. And a box set is a perfect place to start. Absolutely recommended by me.

I have read many of these books prior and I am leaving my review for them below.

Phoebe - Julia Mills
Cute, Short, Sexy story.
Phoebe and Jax were both raised the foster home system so she thinks of Jax as a brother. Phoebe gets a visit from a lawyer named Grant who has papers concerning Phoebe's birth mother. They are off for an adventure to Greece. Well it turns into the trip from hell itself. Phoebe finds out so much including things she never thought possible. The story heats up with Grant and Phoebe's attraction coming to the forefront. Jax is a very protective brother so Grant won't get anything easy in trying to woo Phoebe. Phoebe is one tough *Chick*.
We get just a bit of mystery, a little bit of comedy, and a taste of romance.

Through Time - Whiplash - Claudy Conn
Yet another fantastic book by Claudy Conn. What I love about this book is that she brings characters we have come to love from the previous books. In this story we have Trevor who is the youngest Royal Fae Prince and brother to Dante Royal Fae Prince of Lugh. He is sent on a mission by the Queen however it is not the mission he wants . He wants revenge against Pestale he feels that the Dark Royal Prince got off way to easy for his killing of Lana. Enter Jazz Decker who is a very powerful Shee Fios who has now been tossed back in time to 1816. She and Trevor must find a way to A. Get back to the future and B. Stop the Dark Fae Prince Hordly.
Hordly has taken Jazz and Trevors tracks them and learns that Hordly has fangs? Not only that
Trevor discovers his Fios Jazz has extreme powers. During all of this Trevor discovers he has feelings although he is unsure what those feelings are or mean.
He knows he will not allow any harm to come to Jazz Decker and makes a vow on this he also knows he feels something very strong for this Human..Will they escape the past? Tons of Action and of course the Sexual, Emotional Turbulance keeps you glue'd to the book !
Get reading the book and you shall find out

Gertie's Paranormal Plantation - Melanie James
Gertie you know the witch from the Leigh series. She has her own story to tell.
Gertie has been dating Brad the fireman for quite some time now but she hates that they are so far apart from each other and decides to help Brad decide to move in with her on the plantation. But many things take place that could spell doom for the happy couple.
We have witches, dragon, humans, and some surprising new creatures in this story. And if you have ever read any of the Leigh books and busted a gut laughing. Gertie will give you that ten fold. Melanie James has outdone herself on this new story. Can't wait to read more about Gertie and her Plantation.

Linda Gets Her Groove Thing - Jennifer Theriot
This is book two in The Green Room Chronicles, and I am pretty sure you can read as a stand alone however if you want to know about some of the characters I suggest you pick up book one.
Linda is hilarious even after her husband devastated her with divorce papers on top of losing all their funds she gets upset and let's just say it all goes uphill in big up way.
When Linda meets Dee and Bonnie lets just say you better have the depends handy because these women will have you in stitches.
This is a short, hilarious read and I would suggest it if you like a little naughty with your nice.

Saving Private Blue - Nicole Garcia
This is a short but sweet romance story.
Savannah grew up being bullied in school being called many names. The only 2 people who came to her rescue were brothers Billy and Travis. These 3 were inseparable but Billy and Savannah fell in love. Billy has now joined the Army and is being deployed to Afghanistan. He loves Savannah enough that he does not want her to be hurt if something were to happen to him so he lies to her.
And those lies setup a lot of heartache for Savannah and its brother Travis who is asked to try to pickup those pieces of her broken heart but can he?
After 4 years away Billy is back and things are forever changed for this man who went off to fight for the freedom of his fellow Americans.
Can hearts be repaired? Does true love win in the end?

Tropical Dreams - Kelly Cozzone
Tropical Dreams .. Had me thinking oh maybe a book about an island or something WOW so not what I was thinking.
We have David Murphy FBI agent injured in a huge bust lost of all of his team. Called to do another job one he did not want to take. He did not want to be responsible for anyone ever again. But he takes it on and its to guard Tiana Alexander daughter of some big wig. There is a contract out for the death of Tiana but of course David can not let her know this. So he poses as someone wanting a job at the soon to be opening night club Tropical Dreams which is Tiana’s long time dream.
Ok that’s all I am going to tell you because I do not want to put spoilers.
Let me leave you with this.. Does David guard Tiana? Or does David fall even further from what he did not intend to happen?
Oh and who do you think put the contract out on her life? The Friend? The Best Friend? Her Dad? Hmmmm
The book was great , the action is endless and the suspense WOW .. and bring on the ROMANCE HOT HOT HOT !!!!!

The Dragon and the Vampire - Special Enforcement Bureau Book 1 - A.K. Michaels
This book was fantastic. In this book we have Ronan he was mentioned in a previous series of books by the author. He is the leader / Head of The Supernatural Enforcement Bureau. What is that you ask? Well in most countries we all have to have some sort of justice / police and this is the Paranormal equivalent.
Ronan is bewildered as a Dragon is being hunted by the dark magic witch that almost killed Peri his sires mate. A dragon shifter wow is what he thinks. He has never seen one nor does he believe until he finally sees her. And feelings begin immediately. Starr has been on the run a very long time from the hunters they have killed her brother and have tried to capture her.
Ronan and his team do all they can to find Starr and help her understand they wish to help her not hurt her.
With the witch Esther’s help they locate Starr.
Starr comes back to the Bureau with Ronan and Esther and things heat up between Starr and Ronan. They have figured out they are life mates. Well things get right HOT between these two.
But they are not out of danger and Starr refuses to be left behind while Ronan and his teams go to hunt the Hunters.
Can they save Starr? Can the team actually put an end to the hunters?
Well pick up your copy and I am sure you will love it as much as I did.

Eden's Kiss (Porter Kingston Series #4)
Jennifer Bryan Yarbrough
This is book four in this series.
Claudia and Olivia and the Kingston’s' men’s children are all grown up. Grayson has planned a trip for a few years and now it is finally time to take it. Of course, his best friend and cousin Gideon is going with him. They run into one little snag. Little sister to Gideon has decided to stow away in the back seat. Eden has always been a thorn in many sides but she is a loving soul also. Something takes place that many would see as taboo and Grayson has no clue how to speak to his parents or his best friend about it. Grayson also learns of those who should be in his life and hopes everything works out.
Grayson came into this family at the age of ten. He and Eden although cousins are not blood family. They have had intense feelings all of their lives.
What happens when they can no longer hide those feelings? Will their families be happy or shut them out? A horrible accident may be what breaks the issue all together.
I enjoyed this story and have enjoyed this series. I would suggest starting with book one so you can learn everyone. I cannot wait to find out who gets a book next.

“I read this book via Kindle Unlimited.”

Review: Dreamwalker by Allyson James
Dreamwalker - Allyson James, Jennifer Ashley

After waiting for over three years, I’m so excited to report that Janet and Mick are back! The fifth Stormwalker book opens with Janet and Mick on a date. Their fortune cookies contain dire messages that Janet must go help her half-sister (same evil goddess mother), Gabrielle. From there, things only get more chaotic and dangerous as Emmett Smith, the evil mage from the previous book, is back. As the Ununculous - the most powerful mage in existence - he kills anyone who would be his competition, and he desperately wants Janet and Mick’s magic mirror. 


Dreamwalker is a wonderful addition to one of my favorite series. Although it’s been a while since the previous book, I was able to submerse myself completely into the world without feeling like I forgot anything. Ms. James does a great job tying in important facts without it feeling like a rehash of the entire series.


One of the best things about the Stormwalker series is the ensemble cast of characters who surround the protagonist, Janet. From the love of her life, dragon shifter Mick, to her powerful sister. From her wiccan hotel manager to the vampire resident. From her watchful grandmother to her loving father. From the contrary, mysterious Coyote god to the magically null police officer. The list goes on and on. Each character adds so much to the setting of the story and helps create a home for Janet, as well as the reader. Each person has his/her place in the overall tale; no superfluous fillers. Through flashbacks and present day actions, we learn more about several of the cast, as they in turn learn more about themselves.


This time around, Janet spends quite a bit of time in her own past as she dreamwalks, which is different from dreaming. In her dreams, she relives parts of her life, while maintaining knowledge of her current self. At first, I enjoyed the trip down memory lane, to a time before the series began. But after a while, the dreams began to feel like filler to me, and I would have preferred more time in the present.


Overall, Dreamwalker is an enjoyable story. I love this series and have missed it greatly. While the book was entertaining, it was lacking the “big mystery to solve” that has accompanied the previous titles. Dreamwalker felt almost like a transitional tale, yet still complete. It closed some chapters in Janet's life but opened new ones. The dreamwalking was an interesting tool, but I felt a bit cheated out of "new" material because of it. However, in the end, it simply felt so good and right just to be with the characters again. 


My Rating:  B+ Liked It A Lot

Dreamwalker (Allyson James)
Dreamwalker - Allyson James, Jennifer Ashley

4.25 stars

The last Stormwalker book was released in 2012, and this one's release date has actually been pushed back a couple of times (the original timeline was 2014 if I wasn't mistaken). Having said that -- and even if I had little to remember about the details of previous books -- I truly had no problem jumping back into the world of Janet Begay, Mick, and their bands of family and friends. As always, we had villain that threaten Janet, the hotel being broke down (again!), quick fast-pace story-line doused with actions, and absolutely terrific battle in the end.

Because I loved this series so much, I bought it even without reading the blurb (or apparently, paid attention to the title, Dreamwalker). In result, I was slightly a bit annoyed with the dream sequences that Janet was having in this book. I felt like it took Janet away from the action in real life, plus it went back to her past life, and I thought ... we've been through this!!

However, when I finally realized the game plan, what those dreams meant for Janet as arsenal to fight the Ununculous, Emmett Smith, I thought it was pretty brilliant. I actually grasped all the things that the dreams were teaching Janet. Plus I was gasping in delight when I realized who pushed Janet into all those dreams. It was surprising but very, very good.

It's all I can say about this ... I was loving it (as always). It kicked ass (as always). I loved the secondary characters too (as always). Plus the relationship progress between Janet and his step-sister Gabrielle was able to made my eyes a bit teary (bonus point). I know that the hotel will be rebuild (again); I just hope it survives another battle ... plus I think Janet will want her wedding there?

Hopefully the next book will not take another 4 years >.<
