Blog Tour with Excerpt, Giveaway & Release Week Review! Her Alpha Viking (Odin's Bastards #1) Sheryl Nantus!
Her Alpha Viking - Sheryl Nantus

 

 

BOOK SYNOPSIS


Former soldier Erik Harrison is a dead man walking. The sole survivor of an ambush, the guilt of losing his friends is crushing. He questions his own sanity, remembering the vision he saw as he was dying –– a battle angel come to collect his friends' souls.

 

Valkyrie Brenna Lund doesn't know why she failed in her duty to reap Erik's soul on the battlefield. He deserves his place with the other mighty warriors in Valhalla, and if she wants to return home, she has to kill him.

 

There are consequences for betraying the gods. But the closer Brenna and Erik become, the more they both want to risk everything for a future together. If only an immortal hunter weren’t sent to kill them both.

 

 

BOOK INFO
Her Alpha Viking by Sheryl Nantus
Series The Odin’s Bastards Series
Genre Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher Entangled Amara
Publication Date August 27, 2018

 

 

As Erik and Brenna become closer, the more they realize they want to risk everything for a future together.

 

This mythological based story is fascinating and romantic with strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers in and refuse to let go. The romance of this story has quite a few obstacles in the way of the happily ever after, one of which is the fact that Brenna was sent to kill Erik in order to correct her mistake. This causes quite a bit of emotional confusion as they struggle to stay alive and fight their very magnetic attraction to each other and readers can’t help but become ensnared by their journey to their future. The romance is also on the sweet side as it is a first love for Victoria and because of what she is, she doesn’t have much understanding of what is happening between her and Erik which makes readers smile and even gives them a few chuckles.

 

The plot is steady paced and flows smoothly from beginning to end, although the battles do seem to move at a faster pace because they are so thrilling and really get readers’ adrenaline pumping. There is never a dull moment to be found as the intriguing story is full of intrigue and exciting twists and turns that keeps readers guessing during this well developed and mesmerizing world.

 

This captivating new world has a unique take on Norse Mythology, is full of Valkyries and soldiers, and captivating characters that ensure readers will come back for more.

Freyja spied into your heart and knew you wouldn't be able to do it. She knew even before you did.


It should have been easy to take a tired, weary warrior. Even one like Erik.
The question now was why? This was the second time failing in her duty and she was no closer to finding out why.


She rubbed her face with her palm.


Brenna got to her feet and walked toward the bathroom. Maybe there was some sort of clue about him, something she could pick up. Her only memory of him before tonight had been almost a year ago and under very different circumstances.


The door was ajar, the water running. She edged close enough to look in.
The breath caught in her throat as she gazed at Erik Harrison, his bare torso gleaming with sweat in the dim light. The shredded remains of his shirt lay on the floor along with his jeans and shoes, kicked to the side in a jumbled heap. He wore only a pair of tight boxer briefs riding low on his hips.


It wasn't like she didn't know what a naked man looked like. Berserkers donned a scrap of bear fur as armor as they charged into battle, racing to a glorious death. Armored knights rode, encased in metal charging onto the battlefield. Soldiers from all times and places sat together in the Halls, fought every day and celebrated all night. She'd seen them all.


Including Erik, in the cage only a few hours ago, facing his opponent and going down to defeat wearing much the same as he had on now.


But this... this was different.


He wasn't perfect, far from it. Erik's chest was dotted with white puckered scars, some the size of nickels and others as short slashes. As he turned she saw his back and other, older marks showing previous battles. Yet it didn't seem to detract from the power coming off him in waves, the silent strength evident with every move, every shift of his body. The muscles were tight and well-defined, not an inch of fat on his frame.


He winced as he pressed a damp cloth to the mottled bruises over his left rib cage. Matty had focused in on that during the fight and it showed. The swollen cut over his eye had stopped bleeding and was already going down but it still warranted a cleaning and a fresh bandage.


She couldn't take her eyes off him. The toned muscles seemed to be calling to her urging her to soothe his distress with her touch, offer to take the pain away somehow. Images flashed through her mind of the couples she'd seen in the shadows of the Great Halls, lovers stealing away for some private time before the never-ending battles started at dawn.


Brenna clenched her fingers, digging her nails into the skin to stay still. A flash of heat between her legs shocked her and she pressed her knees together, cursing in silence.


What is this madness?

Goodreads - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32164134-achilles

 

 

Reading the Kings of the Blood box set which includes books one through three is a fascinating and wonderfully thrilling experience.


First, this is my first time reading any of the Kings of the Blood books and I was completely fascinated with the world and Julia Mills’ intriguing concept of vampires but not yet really vampires, which I finally decided are immortal warriors with vampire like qualities, anyway the whole working for the gods notion worked really well too and made these delightful characters unique and special. The stories are well written and each character is strong, captivating and well developed which made it easy to connect to them and to become enthralled in the stories. Each story has a wonderfully sweet and entertaining romance, blazing hot passion and sizzling chemistry which includes explicit sexual material. The fast paced plots are full of thrilling action and suspense, including some violent content.

 

Now for Viktor: Heart of a King; Viktor and his soul mate have some really explosive chemistry and the story is full of suspense which keeps readers enthralled until the very end.

 

Next we have Roman: Fury of Her King; Roman and his soul mate have a bit more action in their romance because they dance around each other a bit. The fast paced plot includes some thrilling action and suspense when Roman is betrayed which keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

 

And finally we have Achilles: Soul of Her King; this story mixes things up quite a bit by with rule breaking and secrets with the fast paced plot including thrilling danger and excitement from a very powerful enemy.

 

I can only wish that these stories were bit longer and the stories a bit more fleshed out but I really enjoyed them and the fascinating world that Julia Mills has created, so I am looking forward to Bain’s book which will hopefully be released soon.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.


I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

New Release Review! Imagine Dragon (Dragon Guard #32) Julia Mills!
Imagine Dragon - Julia Mills

 

 

The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY! 

All the planning in the world can’t beat dumb luck. 
Even if your dad just happens to be Lugh, the Celtic God of the Sun, and you’re one of the most powerful Guardsmen to ever walk the earth. No matter how hard he tries, Destiny always seems to drop a steamy pile of Dragon crap right in his path...leaving him to clean up the mess and clean up the mess. 


But then he found her. 
Ancient, mysterious, and completely irresistible…She flew into his life, poured light into his soul, and dropped the old jokester to his knees with little more than a wide-eyed glance and a flick of her tail feathers. 

Evil never takes a holiday…especially where finding your Mate is concerned. 
Faced with a powerfully destructive force manufactured by madmen and sent out to destroy all things - be they Magical or Human - it’s up to the Demi-God and his Strix to exterminate not only the menace but also its Maker. 

Save your Mate or save your kin? That’s what this Guardsman must decide. 

Fate Will Not Be Denied… But even She has her limits. 

 

 

 

Imagine Dragon puts reader’s imaginations to the test, it is so full of exciting events and fantastic characters that it kept my brain firing on all cylinders and glued to my seat throughout the entire book.  All the characters in the story are strong, compelling and very memorable but Kayne and Pearl’s electrifying chemistry and their snarky wit held me hostage and I couldn’t help but enjoy their story even as I was sitting on pins and needles during all the action. Their vibrant force of personality was quite inspiring and their passion burned as hot as the sun all while making me laugh with joy at their dialogue and their unorthodox courtship.

 

Anticipation and suspense builds throughout the story with lots of dangerous and thrilling events which ensured that there was never a dull moment. I have to tell you though that the story is very fast paced and you shouldn’t blink while reading it because you might miss some excitement, not that is really a problem because this story draws you in and refuses to let go.

 

This is the first book that I have read in the Dragon Guard series and it certainly won’t be the last as Julia mills has created a fascinating and exciting world to life with very intriguing characters and the world is so energetic and mixed with so much variety that focusing on any one character or event would be a tragedy because there is so much more, so I can’t wait to read the next book in this spirited series of course I will be catching up on the previous books while I wait.

 

 

 

Imagine Dragon is the 32nd book in the Dragon Guard series which includes:

 

Her Love, Her Dragon: The Saga Begins

Her Dragon to Slay

Her Dragon’s Fire

Haunted By Her Dragon

For the Love of Her Dragon

New Release Review! Wicked and Wild (Bad Things #7) Cynthia Eden!
Wicked and Wild - Cynthia Eden

 

 

She was wicked…

Everyone knew that Valerie Storm was the baddest bit—um, witch on the block. She might look like Snow White, but she had the heart of the wicked queen. She turned her enemies to ash, she danced on their graves, and she had to be stopped. But who could stand up to someone so wicked?

He was wild.

Griffin Bastien was the most powerful shifter to ever walk the earth. His claws had sent plenty of his foes to the grave. Bloodlust burned fast and hard within him, and when his beast took over, there was no stopping him.

Then Wicked met Wild.

Neither of them believed in love. And neither of them ever expected the firestorm that ignited when they kissed. But some things—some people—can’t be controlled. The need that Valerie and Griffin feel for each other, the white-hot lust, will change their world.

Even hell doesn’t burn this hot. 

Too bad that Griffin has been keeping secrets. Too bad that he is the original assassin sent to destroy Valerie. Because when she finds out the truth, there will be no greater fury than a wicked witch betrayed. Even the biggest, baddest beast might discover that he’s absolutely lost when a witch casts her spell, and he will be willing to do anything to reclaim the mate he never expected.

Buckle up, it’s gonna be a wild ride.

Author's Note: WICKED AND WILD is a complete, stand-alone story that is set in the world of my "Bad Things" paranormal books. Expect a sexy alpha, a very fierce heroine, and hot times ahead.

 

 

If you love the Bad Things in life, then Cynthia Eden’s Bad Things series is for you! It is definitely for me as it is full of wonderfully sexy and charismatic characters that just love to be bad and it takes place is an intriguing world that makes the perfect setting for all these wonderful characters.

 

Griffin and Valerie are two of those characters and let me tell you that I just had to get to know them, they had an electrifying chemistry and a sizzling attraction that leapt from the pages and their snarky and somewhat insulting dialogue really made things interesting as they tried to work out their very stimulating, sometimes funny, sometimes emotional and all the time absorbing relationship. There were lots of ups and downs in this relationship and these characters have no trouble with putting readers under a spell and keeping them glued to the pages.

 

There are lots of dangerous and exciting happenings within this story with several thrilling bad guys which keeps the anticipation building and readers on the edge of their seats while plenty of twists and turns keep them guessing as to what will happen next and just who is betraying whom and who is helping.

 

As usual, Cynthia Eden knows just what her readers like and she has no problem giving it to them and Valerie and Griffin make sure that readers know it and love it in this thrilling story that made me want to be Wicked and Wild and read the story a second time… maybe I will because it will make the waiting for the next book go a bit faster…hmmmm.

 

 

 

 

Wicked and Wild is the 7th book in the Bad Things series.

 

Wicked and Wild is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   GPlay   iBooks   Kobo

 

The Bad Things series so far includes:

  • The Devil in Disguise
  • On the Prowl
  • Undead or Alive
  • Broken Angel

Release Day Review! The Coyote’s Cowboy (Masters of Maria #5) Holley Trent!
The Coyote's Cowboy - Holley Trent

 

 

Those sexy shapeshifters are once again on the prowl in Maria, New Mexico, in this tender romance that explores the soft side of being accepted—and loved.

Sheena Esposito has never rocked the boat in her father’s repressive Coyote pack, but when she learns of his intentions to further antagonize a rival alpha, she can’t stay quiet. She must warn the good guys that trouble is headed their way.

When her search lands her outside Maria, New Mexico, a surly ranch hand pegs her as an annoying stray dog. Desperate to keep his new job, cowboy Austin Stuart plans to get rid of the distraction. Yet, according to his little brother, the dog is really a human, and she’s on the run. Could this get more ridiculous? But he soon finds out shapeshifters are very real…and all signs point to Austin being Sheena’s mate.

After a lifetime spent recovering from one embarrassing social gaffe after another, Austin is open to trading his solitude for a chance at having a partner who’s kind about his rough edges—and no one’s sweeter than Sheena. Unfortunately, Sheena is still under her abusive father’s thumb, and she knows he’s waiting for her back in Sacramento.

It’s up to Austin to convince her that the bravest thing she can do is stay in Maria—not only for him, but so she can incite lasting change in Coyote culture as well.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

 

 

I have just returned from an exciting visit to the Town of Maria where I met two strong and captivating characters. Sheen and Austin held me hostage with their sweet romance as they traversed some rocky slopes, emotional turmoil and dealt with an overbearing and dare I say…evil, alpha / father all while taking pleasure in some red hot passion when their sizzling attraction could not be denied. I felt like I really got to know Sheena, Austin and the people of Maria as Holley Trent brought her wonderful characters to vivid life which made my visit such an exciting event because I felt like I was a part of the action as Sheena fought for her freedom and for her right to choose. Although this trip was a bit short, my visit to Maria was fast paced but full of anticipation and excitement and I can’t wait for my next which will take place in July.

 

 

 

The Coyote’s Cowboy is the 5th book in the Masters of Maria series.

 

The 6th book - The Coyote’s Bride is due to be released on July 23, 2018.

 

The Coyote’s Cowboy is available in ebook at:

Amazon - US   CA   UK   AU  

B&N   GPlay   iBooks   Kobo
