Release Day Review! Legendary Beast (Legendary Warriors #3) Barbara J. Hancock!

 

 

She slept......his love didn't

Once upon a time, Madeline was trapped in an enchanted sleep, her baby wrapped tight in her arms. Then the white wolf woke her, and her son disappeared. For centuries, Lev Romanov searched for his wife and their child, and the search drove him half-mad. Can Madeline trust the wolf to be the man who can help her save their son?

 


This paranormal fantasy romance has a bit of a fairy tale feel to it as the heroine has been in an enchanted sleep for a really long time and once she awakens she has to join her mate and fight the evil bad guys, but of course it’s not as easy as all that. This fascinating read has some captivating characters and fascinating plot with a wonderfully different world, one that certainly captured my attention and keep me turning the pages. The romance between Madeline and Lev is one that has some major odds to overcome as there are misunderstandings, curses, magic, evil and trust issues to get in the way but the love and the attraction is still there and burns bright if they can just trust their hearts.

 

The plot is steady paced and flows smoothly throughout all the trials of tribulations of this couple’s journey to save their son with magic and thrilling battles adding excitement to the story and some unique elements spice things up as well. If you are like me and haven’t read the first two, please do because reading this story without having read them, left feeling a little lost at the beginning until I got quite a bit into the story and figured out what was happening, that’s not to say that the story wasn’t enjoyable because it was quite fascinating and kept a hold of me until I had figured it out and of course by then I really had to know how it was going to end, so I have added the previous books to my TBR pile and will hopefully get to them soon.

I write gothic thrillers and fantasy romance. For Harlequin Nocturne, I've written a Faustian series featuring men who've sold their souls and the women who save them--Brimstone Seduction, Brimstone Bride, and Brimstone Prince. And a fairytale Gothic series featuring three Russian wolf shifters-- Legendary Shifter, Legendary Wolf and Legendary Beast. Also watch for my first YA romance, a Gothic Thriller w/ Entangled Publishing available October 2018. When I'm not writing, I'm a referee to twins and adopted mom to many rescued pets. I live in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia with my soulmate where ghost stories are often told on a dark side porch in the flicker of firefly light.

Release Week Review! Belonging in the Dragon (Dragon Lovers #2 / Lick of Fire) Kara Lockharte!
Belonging to the Dragon - Kara Lockharte

 

 

He claims I'm his MATE...but I'm not the housekeeper's daughter anymore.
My name is Lana Rodriguez and I am DONE with dragons.

Especially my childhood friend, rich boy Lucas Randall, who claims I’m his mate.

So what if he’s more than six feet of stupefying ripped muscle and bedroom-I-know-you-Lana eyes.

I’m not the housekeeper’s daughter anymore.

No Randall is going to dictate my life again.

Not even if every atom in my messed up body wants him.

I’ve got secrets he can’t ever find out.

To mate the dragon is to condemn him to death. Lucas doesn’t know what I am. But he will if he’s around me much longer.

I won’t let that happen.

Because I’m a monster now too.

 

Note: This book is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real life dragon shifter billionaires or anything else else is purely coincidental. Hot sexy times included.

 

 

 

Lana Rodriguez is done with dragons, especially Lucas Randall and in this delightfully exciting story readers will discover whether Lana is really his mate and whether or not she can stay away.

 

This fast paced story flows smoothly throughout as it draws readers in and holds them hostage throughout with strong, captivating characters, red hot passion, thrilling danger and adrenaline pumping excitement. Lana and Lucas are convincing in their relationship as they pursue their respective goals but really the chemistry between these two sizzle and has sparks flying in all directions that they can’t deny the attraction. The evil that they pursue wreaks havoc with thrilling and malicious events that keeps readers biting their nails in horror and anticipation and with the surprising twists that it throws in this couple’s face, there is definitely a never moment. Although, it may have been better if the story had been longer and the plot and romance fleshed out a bit more, I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning.

Kara Lockharte is the author of the Lick of Fire - Dragon Lovers series and the Space Shifter Chronicles. She loves writing romances with sexy alpha alien shifters and strong heroines. She doesn't really like writing bios about herself because she can't think of anything clever or funny to say.

 

Though she can think of something her 4 year old said to her today which was:

"Mom, there's something funny about summer camp." (Upon going to half-day summer camp for the first time this year.)


"What's that?"


"You don't actually go camping in summer camp. Did you know that?"


"Umm..."

 

Ok, it was a lot funnier and cuter when the 4-year-old said it. But it's late because she's been working on this website since the kids went to bed and she has to get up stupid-early. The thing she has learned about really young kids is: they wake up stupid-early and expect you to feed them.

 

Kara and her family live on Planet Earth.

Release Week Review! Wolf Bound (Pack Bound #4) Leisl Leighton!
Wolf Bound (Pack Bound) - Leisl Leighton

 

 

The ultimate sacrifice, a love that lasts forever…

 

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch–kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand–new world.

 

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

 

Shelley Conners has good reason to hate and fear the powers that connect her to the spirit world and the insanity they foretell. But with the Pack's Trickster, Adam McVale, transformed into a Shade, a creature caught between life and death, Shelley holds the only key to saving him. Opening herself up to the world of the dead will only speed up her descent into madness, but Shelley never expects an even darker evil within – the Darkness, waiting patiently for her and the opportunity to destroy the world.

 

 

 

The conclusion to the Pack Bound series is a thrilling read that kept me on pins and needles throughout the book.

 

All the characters in this four book series are strong, compelling and easily draw readers in their story but I have to say that Shelley and Adam captured my attention from the beginning and Wolf Bound which finally tells their story certainly brings them to full and vivid life. They both have issues that readers can relate to and while they seem to be the most vulnerable, they both have very strong wills and strength of character that keeps readers completely enthralled. Their romance is sweet but so full of obstacles and hardships that the happily ever after outcome that readers are hoping for is held in suspense throughout the book.

 

Thrills and chills keep the readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation and wonder as the evil that threatens the weres and the witches grows and its plans solidifies into one that if successful will plunge the world into darkness and chaos. There is never a dull moment to be found in this medium to fast paced plot that has lots of suspense building events with all the characters working hard to find a way to stop the evil, but Shelley and Adam’s part in this battle has readers biting their nails during the entire story.

 

I was looking forward to this book as I have read the previous books and of course was impatiently awaiting the conclusion and I have to say that not only was Shelley and Adam’s story well worth the wait, but the author did a great job of answering all questions regarding the battle they are facing but the final outcome was one that is spectacular, exciting and very fitting for this series and there was no way that I could put this story down until I had read every last word.

 

 

 

Wolf Bound is the 4th and final book in the Pack Bound series which includes:

 

Pack Bound

Moon Bound

Shifter Bound

Wolf Bound

 

Wolf Bound is available in ebook at:

Amazon   A-AU   iBooks   GPlay   Kobo   B&N   eBooks   !ndigo

Release Day Review! Shifter Bound (Pack Bound #3) Leisl Leighton!
Shifter Bound (Pack Bound) - Leisl Leighton

 

 

One pack, one coven, a destiny intertwined...

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

Shifter-Witch Eloise O’Brien has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is—the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.

 

 

 

The intriguing Pack Bound saga continues in another thrilling romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the wolves and the witches struggle to accept the changes that are taking place in the pack and with the never ending attacks by their evil nemesis.

 

All the characters in this series are strong and compelling, easily captivating readers with their lives and their romances and Eloise and Iain have a strong sizzling attraction that is pulls them together but their romance is full of strife and upheaval that tugs at readers’ heartstrings and keeps them fully invested in the story emotionally as well as being kept intrigued with every things that is going on. 

 

The suspense and intrigue of all the exciting events that take place in this story keeps readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation as well as keeping them wondering just how the pack will overcome all the adversity and insecurities that flow from the pages as their enemy comes up with new ways to kill off the pack and anyone who gets in their way. There is lots of twists and turns to ensure that the readers can’t possible guess what will happen next.

 

I was completely caught up in the suspense of the story as well as this emotionally turbulent romance where both the hero and heroine seem to think that neither has a chance at a ‘happily ever after’. This series continues to enthrall me and their enemy continues to incite some very strong emotions from me as well, so needless to say I can’t wait to find out what happens in Moon Bound which is supposed to be released next month.

 

 

 

Shifter Bound is the 3rd book in the Pack Bound series.

 

The 4th book - Wolf Bound will be released on May 1, 2018

 

Shifter Bound is available in ebook at:

Amazon   GPlay   Kobo   B&N   iBooks

Early Review! Hold Back the Dark (Bishop Special Crimes Unit #18) Kay Hooper!
Hold Back the Dark - Kay Hooper

 

 

An SCU team investigates an inexplicable string of murders committed by men and women with no memory of their crimes in the latest in this New York Times bestselling series.

Madness has taken ahold of Prosperity, North Carolina. Residents are killing one another, as if in a dream, and waking up with no memory of the monstrous acts they've committed--or why. As the death toll climbs, the local sheriff's department is further rocked by a murder carried out by one of their own. Deputy Katie Cole knows that whatever monster is afoot is beyond her scope...

The Special Crimes Unit is called in for their specific brand of investigation. It will take all their training, all their experience, and every extra sense they can call on to get to the bottom of things in Prosperity. And as a dark pattern begins to emerge, even the most experienced and hardened SCU agents have to wonder if this is beyond their understanding.

 

 

Bishop’s team of psychics is back and this time they have been summoned along with some all new psychics and there are up against an evil that is pushing for a blood bath in this chilling paranormal suspense that had the hair on the back of my neck standing up on end.

 

Kay Hooper’s suspenseful world of psychics is full of wonderful characters that are strong and captivating, always adding lots of depth to each and every case as they try to solve cases using their psychic abilities and at least some of the time they become targets because of those abilities as well. Every case is different and each have their own unique elements and the author makes it all seem very plausible and real that I can’t help but get chills just thinking about.

 

Hold Back the Dark is the newest thrilling read in the series and I was completely enthralled and unable to put the book down until I had read every last detail. The suspense and anticipation kept building throughout and there was no way to predict just what the evil might make happen next which of course means that there is never a dull moment and to make this book even more interesting, the author introduces some new psychics that have trouble controlling their gifts / curses. There is not really a new romance in this book but there are couples that have hooked up in previous books involved in the case so you still get a bit of romance throughout the story.

 

I can never get enough of this series, so of course I can’t wait to read the next one which I think will be the third book in the Bishop Files series and it will be out in October.

 

 

 

Hold Back the Dark is the 18th book in the Bishop / Special Crimes Unit series.

 

Explore the World of Bishop

 

Hold Back the Dark is available in Hardcover or ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   iBooks   Kobo   GPlay
