Release Week Review! Warrior Nights (Odin's Bastards #2) Sheryl Nantus!

 

 

More reading goodness! Warrior Nights (Odin's Bastards #2) by Sheryl Nantus! Enjoy and don't forget to add Warrior Nights to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Liam Wolfson, the professional assassin, is dead. His new persona, Jack Hammerson, lives in a small town in Colorado, happy helping out as many of the townsfolk as he can. It’s his way of working toward some kind of redemption for his sins. Until one night when an amnesiac woman falls into his arms, calling out his old name...

 

Kara remembers nothing about her previous life, only brief glimpses of an old lover and their time together... but she knows her fate is entwined with Liam's. Then there’s the familiarity with all things Valkyrie and Valhalla. She worries she might be going crazy.

 

Liam has worked hard to hide all traces of his old life but Kara rips old wounds open as their old feelings for each other come rushing back. But it's not just Kara who's come to town looking for answers. When mercenaries arrive looking for Liam, he’ll need Kara to remember what she’s capable of if either of them is going to survive...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The second book in the Odin’s Bastards series a thrill a minute ride that keeps readers glued to its pages. Liam and Kara are two strong, bold characters that really stand out and grab readers’ attentions as they struggle with personal demons and outside forces. Their romance is full of sizzling chemistry, blistering passion and lots of emotional turmoil, the kind centering on their inner demons and which really lets readers get to know their characters. Their romance is also hampered by Kara’s inability to remember who she is, what she is and where she came from which adds to the sense of expectation of events to come.

 

The fast pace and smooth flowing plot is full of thrilling anticipation, dangerous excitement, good deeds and the drive to be better. The suspense builds as Liam and Kara try to find the key to unlocking Kara’s memory and with some surprising twists danger comes calling from Liam’s past, a past that may put Liam back on the wrong path. This fascinating series has just gotten better with this new addition and the world is mysterious and exciting with the author’s own spin to Norse mythology and the Valkyries. Entering this world causes readers to become completely under its spell from beginning to end and maybe even beyond.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

A Merman's Choice
Sea of Love Book 1
by Alice Renaud
Genre: Fantasy Romance

 

For centuries the shape-shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands have lived incognito among humans. But one of them, Yann, has developed some bad habits. Like rescuing humans, even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. When he fishes Alex out of the sea, he doesn’t expect her to reappear eight months later, and turn his life upside down by asking him to be her guide.

 

Alex is determined to fulfil a promise to her dying grandmother, by gathering pictures and stories of the Morvanns. But she soon discovers that, on these remote Welsh islands, legends have a habit of becoming true!

 

Over the course of a few days, Yann and Alex grow close. But some mermen hate humans. Their hostility, and Yann’s secret, threaten to tear the couple apart just as they are discovering that they are soul mates. Can Yann overcome the obstacles in his path and make the right choice?

I am so glad that you could join us today, Alice!

 

 

Where were you born/grew up at?

 

I was born and grew up in one of the most beautiful places in the world (no, seriously, people come from far away just to see it). On the northern coast of Brittany, in Western France, near a town called St-Malo, famous for its pirates and privateers. The seascape, the cliffs, coves, beaches and stone houses inspired my fantasy romance trilogy “Sea of Love”. I feel that landscape has seeped inside me. When I die, if they do an autopsy, they’ll find seashells and sand in my heart.

 


Do you have a favorite movie?

 

Casablanca. The romance! The noble sacrifice! The two men walking away into the desert, bereft of love but with their new, beautiful friendship! AAAaaaaah.

 


What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

 

I visited the area, near the UK city of Birmingham, where JRR Tolkien grew up. He spent his early childhood in an idyllic rural village, and we saw an old mill, by a river, which clearly inspired the descriptions of the Shire. Later Tolkien moved to an industrialized area of the city, and when we saw the two tall towers that once belched out black fumes, we understood straight away where the idea for the Two Towers came from. It was fascinating to see how landscapes and buildings can find their way into a book, transformed into wonderful, evocative locations.

 


As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?


A blue tit. They’re lively, colourful, smart, and they can eat upside down, which I think would be a really cool thing to do.

I was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, my father was French and my mother British (from Wales). I moved to London, UK, in 1997, where I now live with my husband and son. I have been writing since I was 14. I got quite a few short stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. I wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn't find a publisher for them. I then realized that mermen, sea witches and water demons were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! My first two paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then I wrote A Merman's Choice, which was accepted for publication this year by Black Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in a fantasy romance trilogy inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. I love reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who's interested!

New Release Reveiw! Siren's Calling (The Cursed Seas Collection) Alyssa Breck & Anna Santos!

 

 

Today, we are diving underwater and then traveling through a dystopian world in Siren's Calling a new release in The Cursed Seas Collection by Alyssa Breck & Anna Santos! Enjoy and don't forget to add the book to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Framed and disgraced by her ex, young siren Alayah needs to restore her honor and prove her valor. When the elders announce that there’ll be a contest to choose a commander who will leave on a quest to find a Legacy Stone, Alay jumps at the opportunity and signs up.

 

Only the strongest of all participants will have the honor to search for the stone. The elders aren’t taking things lightly, and all the games are difficult. Plus, something dark is killing the participants and trying to stop the quest from being completed.


The warrior siren’s young shoulders carry the burden and hopes of the region when she leaves with a team of warrior sirens to recruit a mage to stop the total destruction of the earth’s habitat.

 

Recruiting the mage won’t be as easy has the elders foretold. Yet, in a turn of the events, Alay finds herself with two gorgeous mages vying for attention and willing to help her on her quest.

 

Bonds will be forged, and trusts will be betrayed in this epic quest that leads sirens, humans, mages, and dark creatures into a race against time to find the powerful Legacy Stone and use it for either good or evil.

 

Siren female warriors, sexy mages, and dark creatures live in this dystopian world where the Black Magic threatens to destroy an already dying world. If you are a fan of Hunger Games, The 100, and Divergent, you'll love this one!

 

Siren’s Calling is a stand-alone, full-length, Reverse Harem, Dystopian novel in The Cursed Seas Collection.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


This enthralling reverse harem romance keeps readers glued to the pages with lots thrilling suspense and a sense of adventure as sirens, humans, mages and dark creatures race against time to find a powerful stone. The characters in this romance are bold, vibrant and easily draw readers into their story which has them on quest to save the siren’s world and eventually the whole world. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic future with black magic threatening to destroy what is left of the dying world and the authors brought it to life and sparked readers’ imaginations which make it easy for readers to feel as if they are partaking in the quest as well. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout with lots of adrenaline pumping and suspenseful events including creatively described magical battles, emotional turmoil, betrayals, spine chilling events, exciting meetings and life altering changes.

 

The romance of the story is sweet and pretty much clean even though this is a reverse harem romance and it kind of unfulfilling in that respect with the way the relationships come about. Alayah leaves on the quest but has to leave her love at home and while on the journey she discovers two more men along the way. The story has some intimate scenes between Alayay and each of her lovers but there is something missing from the whole process but that does not take away from the enjoyment of this story as readers can’t stop turning the pages of the non-stop explosive action and suspense of this story.

Book Description:

 

"You met them in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their legends!”

 

A warrior sentenced to die.

 

On trial for breaking a supreme Fae law, Fenian Warrior, Liam MacGregor has no regrets. He is prepared to accept his sentence—even if it means his death. However, freedom comes in an unexpected manner, and brings with it certain dangers as he travels through the Veil of Ages.

 

A princess honor-bound to remain hidden.

 

Princess Abela might be a priestess and the daughter of royalty, but that doesn’t prevent her from doing the unimaginable. She sacrifices duty and honor to set free the man who captured her heart so many years ago. No matter the severity of his crimes, she cannot let Liam die.

 

A rescue that will bring about a war and divide a kingdom!

In their quest to secure a treaty to forestall Liam’s death sentence, they must fight their desires for one another, as well as the Fenian Warriors sent to capture them.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Fantasy comes to life in this sensational fairytale romance where the characters are strong, convincing and steal the hearts of readers. Liam and Abela are characters that are easily connected to and they draw readers into their story. The romance between them is the stuff of fairytales and dreams as they both have hidden their feelings down deep due to the direction their lives have taken and readers can’t help but become completely taken with them both as they set out to change their world and forge a new path. The attraction sizzles between them but their road is fraught with danger and emotional turmoil which keeps readers in suspense throughout their adventure.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of twists and turns that adds to the intense emotions and thrilling excitement of the story which keeps readers glued to the pages. The story is further enhanced by betrayals and the ‘race against time’ factor that holds Abela and Liam’s quest in its grasp also has Abela’s life hanging in the balance. This romance captures the hearts of readers and has them fully engaged in the story both emotionally and adventurously and the author’s wonderful story telling gift ensures that readers can easily imagine each and every scene while visiting this fascinating world.

The Holiday Feature for the day is…

 

Mary Morgan is going to going to take readers to a 13th century Scotland Midwinter Feast!

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Come journey with me as I whisk you away to 13th century Scotland for a Midwinter’s feast. We shall arrive at Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness.

This is the home of the Clan MacKay—the Dragon Knights. Their bloodline is steeped in ancient Celtic mythology. Though they respect the new religion that has swept across their land, the Dragon Knights continue to honor the old ways. Midwinter is a celebration of light and warmth here within the walls. The doors have been left open for all to enter in peace. Once you step inside, you are drawn to the holly boughs with ivy, bay, crimson-berried yew and fragrant bunches of rosemary.

 

The torches cast a welcoming light as you proceed onward. As we enter the Great Hall, you are met with boisterous laughter and gaiety. A bard is recanting the tale between the aging Holly King (representing the darkness of the old year), and the young Oak King (symbolizing the light of the New Year). Some of the older lasses have chosen to weave a sprig of holly onto their gowns and they nod at you in passing.

 

Candles illuminate the hall in a soft glow as you make your way toward the feasting tables. The Dragon Knights and their wives are seated at a longer table near the hearth. Ale and mead are flowing, along with the tempting dishes you survey as you take your place. You are tempted by the trencher of wild boar stuffed with onions and cabbages to your right. Or maybe you would prefer the spiced apples and damson tarts.

 

 

Afterwards, the minstrels begin to play a lively tune and a few of the couples grasped hands to join in the merriment.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Mary Morgan is also going to share the modern day version of the recipe for Damson Tarts!

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

PLUM TARTS aka…DAMSON TARTS***

 

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup finely chopped almonds

3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed

12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), cut into small pieces

1 egg yolk

2 pounds firm, ripe plums, pitted and quartered lengthwise

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

 

Combine the flour, almonds, and sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and the egg yolk. Mix by hand or with an electric mixer, until crumbly.

 

Press 1 1/2 cups of the crumb mixture in an even layer into the bottom of a 9 1/2-inch springform or tart pan. Arrange the plums in the pan, skin side down to form a flower pattern; begin at the outside and work your way in.

 

Sprinkle the rest of the crumb mixture evenly over the plums. Bake the tart for 40 to 50 minutes, or until it’s lightly browned and the plum juices are bubbling.

Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer tart to flat plate.

 

Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

 

 

***Damson: A small fruit with vibrant, dark blue skin and a strong sour flavor. Damsons are similar to plums. They have a large stone (pit) and are often juicy, but tend not to be eaten raw due to the tartness of their flesh.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Add to put a cherry on top of the delicious sounding Damson Tarts – Here is an EXCERPT from Trial of a Warrior!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
A tremor of longing to be kissed filled Abela. She should flee this instant, but her feet refused to listen to her mind.


Liam reached out and tucked a stray curl behind her ear. His finger trailed down the side of her neck, and she shuddered. “You have not answered me.”


“Yes,” she replied rapidly.


The smile in his eyes contained a sensuous flame, and she was drawn to him. A soft breeze billowed around them. She ached to press her mouth against his. Just one kiss.


As if reading her thoughts, Liam cupped her chin and stroked his thumb over her bottom lip. “Your mouth begs to be kissed, princess.”


She swallowed and did the unthinkable. “Then kiss me, Liam MacGregor.”


His groan echoed around them as he took possession of her mouth. The kiss sent the pit of her stomach into a wild swirl of delicious sensations. Abela’s body yearned to touch him, so she wrapped her arms around his neck. The contact of his skin against her chest ignited a burning desire for more.


Liam grasped her firmly around the waist with one arm and deepened the kiss. When his silken tongue sought entry, she opened fully to the seduction, tasting wine, apples, and his own scent. His moan resonated deep within her, and she found her body responding to a rhythm as old as the land they lived upon.


Never did Abela imagine the power behind a kiss—seductive, enchanting, shattering, and she craved more.

1 prize package: A signed print copy of TRIAL OF A WARRIOR, Scottish jeweled bookmark, and postcards of all of Mary’s books. (US and Canada only)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Award-winning Celtic paranormal romance author, Mary Morgan, resides in Northern California, with her own knight in shining armor. However, during her travels to Scotland, England, and Ireland, she left a part of her soul in one of these countries and vows to return.

 

Mary's passion for books started at an early age along with an overactive imagination. She spent far too much time daydreaming and was told quite often to remove her head from the clouds. It wasn't until the closure of Borders Books where Mary worked that she found her true calling--writing romance. Now, the worlds she created in her mind are coming to life within her stories.

 

If you enjoy history, tortured heroes, and a wee bit of magic, then time-travel within the pages of her books.

Today Since I shared the 3rd book in the series in another post today, I am also going to share my review of Quest of a Warrior - the 1st book in the Legends of the Fenian Warriors series by Mary Morgan!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

"You met them in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their legends!"

 

Fenian Warrior, Conn MacRoich has traveled the earth for thousands of years, guarding the realm between mortal and Fae. His deeds are legendary. Yet, one mistake will force him on a journey to fix a broken time-line. However, on Conn’s quest, he must face a human female who will eventually bring this ancient warrior to his knees.

 

When Ivy O’Callaghan inherits her uncle’s estate, she never imagines there will be more secrets to unravel, including the one she hides from the world. With the help of a mysterious stranger, she learns to trust and step out of the shadows. However, nothing prepares Ivy when she learns Conn's true identity.

 

As the loom of fate weaves a thread around the lovers from two different worlds, will the sacrifices they make lead them to love? Or will their secrets destroy and separate them forever?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


Having met the Fenian Warriors in the Order of the Dragon Knights series, I was quite excited that readers were finally going to get to know them better and hear their stories. And now that I have read the first book in the Legends of the Fenian Warriors series, I have to tell you that it surpassed my expectations. Mary Morgan brings her worlds to vivid live with well written words and a gift for spinning a tale that makes readers believe in the unbelievable and easily draws them into the worlds she brings to life. Conn MacRoich and Ivy O’Callaghan are two of the most strong, vibrant characters that I have ever read as they try to unravel secrets, right wrongs and deny a sizzling attraction that heats up the pages. The romance between the two is smolders with passion and adventure as they captivate readers with their strength and depth.

 

Elements of danger and magic add a mysterious ambiance to the story which has a fast paced plot and flows smoothly through the events that take place ensuring that readers can’t put the book down for fear that they might miss one second of this the thrilling suspense and intriguing tale of lovers separated by worlds but linked by the fates. Conn’s struggle between his quest and his feelings for Ivy add to the depth of the story and make it easy for readers to believe that heroes really do exist and guarantees that readers want to get to know more of the Fenian Warriors.

Award-winning Celtic paranormal romance author, Mary Morgan, resides in Northern California, with her own knight in shining armor. However, during her travels to Scotland, England, and Ireland, she left a part of her soul in one of these countries and vows to return.

 

Mary's passion for books started at an early age along with an overactive imagination. She spent far too much time daydreaming and was told quite often to remove her head from the clouds. It wasn't until the closure of Borders Books where Mary worked that she found her true calling--writing romance. Now, the worlds she created in her mind are coming to life within her stories.

 

If you enjoy history, tortured heroes, and a wee bit of magic, then time-travel within the pages of her books.
