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!

Release Day Review! Centaur's Prize (Zodiac Shifters) Catherine Banks
Centaur's Prize: Sagittarius - Catherine Banks

 

 

The centaur’s prized possession was lost and as the guard on duty that night, all blame is placed on Lysander. For punishment, they exiled him to the human’s world, away from his herd and the only life he had known. The only way he can get back to Olympus is to find the lost item. A feat made much more difficult when a gorgeous, tall, and leggy blonde trots into his life.


Mendra is the last of her kind, a Pegasus with the ability to shift into human form or equine form. Her mother told her wild tales about lands with centaurs, satyrs, Gods, and heroes, but she never believed them. Until she met a man like her, a man who could shift into equine form and tells her similar stories. He asks for her help finding a lost item, so he can return to Olympus and his herd. She wants to help him, but she’s afraid to lose the one person who makes her feel like she’s home.


Lysander convinces Mendra to help him, but as they search for the lost item, he isn’t so certain he wants to return home. Life with the humans is so much different than Olympus and his heart aches at the thought of leaving Mendra behind, alone in a world without a herd of her own. Will his arrow fly true, or will they lose more than they ever imagined?

 

 

 

Centaur’s Prize is a delightful short read that readers can enjoy while on the go. The story has some unique and wonderful characters, some thrilling suspense including bad guys, some mysterious secrets and a spicy romance.

 

I was caught from the very beginning as the story begins with a bit of action and I couldn’t stop turning the pages as a bit of mystery and a sizzling romance between Myndra and Lysander keeps spices up the story in fact the only complaint I have is that I didn’t have enough time with these characters.

 

 

Centaur’s Prize is part of the Zodiac Shifters (Goodreads, Website) series

ARC Review Copy

 

Dragons, duty, destined mates, and a deadly rival...
Silas Llewellyn, the last of a once-mighty dragon clan, doesn’t have time for anything but work and duty. He certainly doesn’t have time for love — not with a ruthless enemy plotting to destroy everything he holds dear. When a priceless diamond — one of the legendary Spirit Stones — surfaces in New York, Silas knows the jewel is nothing but trouble…just like the alluring woman who refuses to relinquish the gem.

 

Bartender Cassandra Nichols never asked to inherit a mysterious diamond, and she really never intended to come between two warring dragons. But with one near-miss escape after another, she has no choice but to choose sides. Before she knows it, she’s whisked by private jet to an oceanfront estate in Hawaii for her own “protection.” Is the enigmatic Mr. Llewellyn just another billionaire dragon who thinks he can claim anything he wants? Or is there more to the soulful stranger than meets the eye?

 

ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you'll love these books!

 

* No cliff hangers. Each story is a standalone paranormal romance with adult content. This story features strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billionaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales! *

Love of the Dragon is book five in the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart series by Anna Lowe.

 

This series fast became an entertaining and enjoyable one for me to read. I do feel you need to read the series in order; because previous characters come into play, the hunt for the Spirit Stones and what destiny aka fate has in store for these characters.

 

Silas is one character the moment he was introduced I couldn’t wait to see who destiny threw in his path to help him learning that being the leader and taking all the responsibility on himself doesn’t have to be done alone. He’s a broody, honorable, and stick to traditions; dragon.

 

Cassandra, is a bartender that didn’t know about shifters or her witch heritage until about a week ago when her crazy aunt through all of this at her. Her world got turned upside down fast, but she handled it well and showed a backbone of steal even when she was scared.

 

I loved watching these two come together. Silas fights his dragon all the time, even when he knows that Cassandra is his mate. Cassandra didn’t know much, but she learned fast and didn’t let witch/dragon stuff stop her from falling for Silas.

 

I was pleasantly surprised by some of the twist thrown into the storyline. The ending was suburb. I’d know from the authors group that she planed to add one more story to this series, but I wasn’t sure how she’d tie it into the Spirit Stone storyline. The ending answered that question and it was well done.

 

As always Ms. Lowe created a wonderful story that kept me hooked from start to finish.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Early Review! The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire # 6) Kate Baxter
The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire series) - Kate Baxter

 

 

He was one of the most feared creatures in the supernatural world, and yet, she was drawn to him unlike any other. His scent ignited her thirst. The sight of him drove her mad with want...

Lovers forever--or enemies to the death? 

Sasha Ivanov was born to be wild. A vampire party girl, she stalks the L.A. clubs at night. Dancing. Drinking. Indulging her darkest appetites. Never sated, she's always looking for more: more danger, more excitement, more blood. But when she enters a supernatural fight club--and is tethered to her mortal enemy--Sasha realizes she's playing the most dangerous game of all...

Ewan Brun was born to kill vampires. A powerful berserker and unbeaten champion, he doesn't need a weapon to be deadly. He is the weapon. But when his soul becomes captive to the most beautiful vampire he's ever seen, he is all but powerless. He cannot resist Sasha--and cannot fight his desires. Is their love strong enough to defeat the gathering forces of darkness that threatens to destroy them both?

 

 

 

The latest book in the Last True Vampire series is a fantastic addition to the series. Ewan and Sasha are vibrant characters that has some wickedly absorbing chemistry that is full of energy that reaches out and grabs reader’s attention and their relationship is full of turbulence and hot, steamy passion. Stories where enemies becomes lovers are always interesting to say the least but The Wicked Vampire takes it to the next level with violent pasts, alpha leaders and a couple that keeps reader guessing throughout.

 

This fast paced story is full of twists and turns along with lots of exciting action that that gives readers quite the adrenaline rush including delicious shivers of anticipation which keep them glued to the pages awaiting the next excitement that this couple seems to find themselves embroiled in. Not only is the berserker alpha up to his full itinerary of schemes that is mysterious and complex but this couple find themselves on the wrong side of some nasty demons that want things their way.

 

Kate Baxter’s Last True Vampire series is well written, unique and full of fabulous characters that readers can’t help but fall for and find themselves caught up in their lives. The Wicked Vampire is no exception as I was completely captivated by Ewan and Sasha and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this exciting world.

 

 

 

The Wicked Vampire is the 6th book in the Last True Vampire Series.

good book and characters
Wolf Hollow (Wolf Hollow Shifters, Book ... Wolf Hollow (Wolf Hollow Shifters, Book 1) (Volume 1) - Nikki Jefford

It was two days before the full moon and Sasha was on patrol. Aden was Sasha’s patrol partner.  Sasha and Aden provide security. Then Sasha caught the horrible stench of a vulhena. The elders thought the vulhena were formerly cougars that had mutated after feeding on diseased human corpses. Like humans vulhena couldn’t see in the dark nor come close to a wolf’s sense of smell. But they were vicious creatures especially when they banded together.  Sasha jumped out at the vulhena.  Vulhena had killed several elders a while ago including Sasha’s parents and she had seen their half eaten bodies, Sasha wanted Aden but he seem to only want friendship. Sasha didn’t want to push it and lose Aden’s friendship. Sasha had only had sex before with one wolf-  Wolfric and he had broken her heart. In the beginning  Wolfric and Sasha couldn’t keep their hands off each other easily accepting their parents and elders wish to claim each other and keep their line pure. But after both their parents gruesome deaths by the vulhena   Wolfric rebelled. Against the surviving three elders. Wolfric took off never to be seen again but Sasha had stayed and served the people. Sasha is next in line to take over the pack. Humans were cruel to shifters if they managed to catch them. Sasha ends up falling for tabor who was a half breed half wolf and half wizard. Most of the pack as well as the elders does not want to see Sasha and Tabor together. The elders invite another purebred wolf - Hectar- at a mating dance hoping the wolf and Sasha will claim each other as mates. Sasha had a necklace so Hectar could tell who she was and Sasha took it off so Hectar wouldn’t recognize her.  The pelders want to get Tabor and another wolf out of the pack and trick them and Tabor is being held by humans.

I liked this book and it was a definite change of background for a shifter book. I liked the plot and pace and really didn’t want to put this book  down. This book had: action, suspense, intrigue, romance, prejudices, fights, tricks, cruelty, surprises, and much more. A different slant on a shifter book. I didn’t understand what the difference between a werewolf and a shifter I don't feel that was made clear.  I liked how Heidi stood up for what she believed in. I didn’t particularly care for Garrett. I enjoyed reading this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
