New Release Review! Fallen (Deep Ops #2) Rebecca Zanetti!

 

 

 

SUIT UP! I am going on a DEEP OPS mission and I am taking all you readers along with me where agents Raider Tanaka & Brigid Banaghan have to pretend to be engaged! Enjoy and don't forget to add FALLEN by Rebecca Zanetti to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Too quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her . . .

 

Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses . . .

 

Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist . . .

 

 

Praise for the debut novel in the Deep Ops series

 

 “Explodes with action, spice and humor.”

—Publishers Weekly

 

“Fans of J. D. Robb and Karen Robards will love Zanetti's series

start.”

—Booklist

 

“The suspense is chilling and the romance is hot.”

—Book Page

 

 

 

Brigid Banaghan got caught hacking and now she is forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. Raider knows there is more to his new assignment than he’s been told. When Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert. Brigid needs Raider’s help to clear her father’s name but unless he can release his inner bad boy, pretending to be engaged won’t fly.

 

This ‘Deep Ops’ story is one hair raising exciting event after another and readers won’t be able to put it down once they get started. The characters are strong, vivid and easily grab the readers’ attentions and the chemistry between Raider and Brigid sizzles with extreme heat although they do seem like an unlikely couple but that just ensures that this growing relationship never has dull moment as the emotions flow and passions ignite.

 

The plot is fast paced with great timing that keeps the excitement coming and the suspense building throughout keeping readers on edge even as stunning twists ensures that they never know exactly what might happen. The ‘Deep Ops’ team is a great team that is strong with a compelling presence that readers wanting to be part of their team especially because this team is a bit unorthodox which makes things real and heroic. This story is energetic, spicy and thrilling with a bit of humor that really makes the story stand out.

New Release Review! The Blacksmith Queen (The Scarred Earth Saga #1) G.A. Aiken!

 

 

 

Good Morning, Readers! Today I am starting off the week with a visit to the Hill Lands where the Old King has died and a prophecy about a new queen has emerged. Enjoy and don't forget to add The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

When a prophesy brings war to the Land of the Black Hills, Keeley Smythe must join forces with a clan of mountain warriors who are really centaurs in a thrilling new fantasy romance series from New York Times bestselling author G.A. Aiken.  

 

The Old King Is Dead

 

With the demise of the Old King, there’s a prophesy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills. Bad news for the king’s sons, who are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers. But for blacksmith Keeley Smythe, war is great for business. Until it looks like the chosen queen will be Beatrix, her younger sister. Now it’s all Keeley can do to protect her family from the enraged royals. 

 

Luckily, Keeley doesn’t have to fight alone. Because thundering to her aid comes a clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amichai. Not the most socially adept group, but soldiers have never bothered Keeley, and rough, gruff Caid, actually seems to respect her. A good thing because the fierce warrior will be by her side for a much longer ride than any prophesy ever envisioned …

 

 

 

The Old King has died and a prophecy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills has emerged and the king’s sons are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers including each other. Blacksmith Keeley Smythe is benefiting from the war until it looks like the chosen queen will be her younger sisters, now it’s all she can do to protect her family from the enraged royals. Luckily she doesn’t have to fight alone, because the clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amicahi have joined the quest.

 

The author has given her fascinating world life once again with some truly wonderful additional elements that readers can definitely appreciate. The dragons may not be a full part of this story, but it takes place in the same world, just a different part. The characters of this new series are strong and blood thirsty as the others and there definitely grab all of the reader’s attention from the very beginning. While Keeley reminds readers of the Human Queen, she has her own refreshing personality that readers can definitely enjoy and the budding relationship that is building between her and Caid promises to be epic.

 

This fast paced story is full of adventure, suspense, excitement and emotional angst, but the way these characters deal with that turmoil can be a bit frightening as well as charming. The author makes this blood thirsty world seem so very reasonable that readers can’t help but have fun and be delighted with the captivating characters, which includes centaurs, dwarves, barbarians, witches, and wild horses, while they are completely enthralled by this riveting and exhilarating adventure.

New Release Review! Hold Back the Dawn by Amanda Ashley!

 

 

 

Hello Again, Readers! Today I am journeying back to historical London to meet the vampire Roan Cabrera as he finds love. Enjoy and don't forget to add Hold Back the Dawn by Amanda Ashley!

 

 

 

 

 

London’s diversions hold no charm for Roan Cabrera. Despite his reputation as a scoundrel, he’s in high demand among the city’s most eligible young women. And though their blood can quench his undying thirst, none of them can fill the emptiness in his centuries-old soul. He finds solace only in easing the pain of those near death—by helping them relive their most cherished memories …

 

The last thing Kathryn Winterbourne remembers is being struck by a carriage. When she awakens in a luxurious bed, she feels like she must have died and gone to heaven. But the man who has saved her is no angel. With his penetrating eyes, the darkly handsome Roan looks more like the devil himself. And when Kathryn is confronted with the truth about her mysterious hero, she’ll have to decide whether to shutter her heart against him—or give in to the thrill of his love …

 

 

“A master of her craft.” —Maggie Shayne  

 

Praise for Amanda Ashley and Twilight Dreams

 

“A tender paranormal romance exploring love and family ties, and it’s tinged with intrigue and vengeance. . . . This portrait of new love is sweet and endearing.” 

—Publishers Weekly 

 

“Author Ashley is no stranger to paranormal romance … Intriguing.” 

—Kirkus Reviews  

 

“Master storyteller Amanda Ashley weaves a classic vampire tale of sensual, spine tingling suspense.”

—Christine Feehan 

 

 

 

Despite his reputation as a scoundrel, Roan Cabrera is in high demand among the city most eligible women. Their blood can quench his undying thirst but not of them can fill the emptiness in his centuries-old soul. The last think Kathryn Winterbourne remembers is being struck by a carriage but upon awakening she’s wonders if she’s died and gone to heaven, although with penetrating eyes, her darkly handsome savior looks more like the devil himself.

 

This historical vampire romance is a sweet, enticing and powerful romance that has readers shivering in delight. The characters are strong, captivating and easily grab the readers’ attention while the romance is sweet and full of sizzling chemistry. The relationship between Kathryn and Roan has lots of emotional turbulence as at first Kathryn mistrust Roan’s altruistic endeavors and when she discovers his truth, she has to decide if she can accept him into her heart and all the while Roan is doing his best to protect and provide for her.

 

The plot is steady paced and full of gripping suspense that keeps readers glued to the pages not only in regards to Kathryn and Roan’s HEA but a dangerous rogue has infiltrated Roan’s territory, one who seems to be out to destroy Roan and everyone he cares for and in his quest to do so attracts hunters who have every intention of collection a prosperous bounty on Roan’s head. The historical London setting adds to the delicious gothic ambiance of a traditional vampire romance that ignites readers’ fantasies and ensures that they don’t to miss one second of this vampire’s delight.

Release Day Review! Beware the Darkness (Guardians of Eternity #14) Alexandra Ivy!

 

 

 

Good Morning Readers! Today I am returning to Florida where the vampire Tarek is using his new found freedom to search for a bit of revenge! Enjoy and don't forget to add Beware the Darkness by Alexandra Ivy to your shelves! 

 

 

 

 

The enemy may have changed, but the battle between good and evil burns hotter than ever in this scintillating new installment in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series. 

 

There is only one thing more precious to vampire Tarak than his newfound freedom after five centuries of captivity, and that’s the promise of revenge. At last, he can destroy Riven, the merman who has drained his power in order to make himself king. But at the very moment when justice is a fang’s breadth away, Tarak’s quest is complicated by the beautiful mermaid princess who kept him sane and fed during his ordeal.

 

Waverly hoped that once Tarak escaped, he’d return to his own kind and enjoy the rest of his immortal life. She also hoped she might one day stop dreaming about the darkly handsome vampire. Instead, Tarak’s return draws Waverly into an unlikely alliance—and a passion that eclipses all her fantasies.

 

Hatred for Riven has sustained Tarak this long. But only Waverly’s love can give him the strength to claim eternity with her . . .

I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on. 

 

Years later (no, I'm not admitting how many) I'm still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

 

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.

Release Day Review! Alpha's Promise (Dark Protectors #10) Rebecca Zanetti!

 

 

 

We are getting this release day started with a trip to hell and back! Enjoy and don't forget to add Alpha's Promise by Rebecca Zanetti to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

To hell and back . . .

 

Though he has vampire, demon, and Viking blood rushing through his veins, Ivar Kjeidsen’s soul-crushing trip to hell broke him in ways he can barely fathom. One vow keeps the deadly immortal standing: To rescue the vampire brother who had sacrificed freedom for him. To do that, Ivar needs the help of a brilliant physicist with wary brown eyes, fierce brilliance, and skin that's way too soft.

 

Dr. Promise Williams understands the underpinnings of the universe but has never figured out the human beings inhabiting it. Her function is to think—and not feel—until she’s touched by a vampire who’s nowhere near human. The primal hunger in his eyes awakens feelings in her that defy calculation. As she shows him the way to step between worlds, he brands her with a pleasure that could last more than a lifetime . . .


 

 

Even with vampire, demon and Viking blood rushing through his veins, Ivar Kjeidsen’s soul crushing trip to hell broke him in ways he can barely fathom. Only the vow to rescue the vampire brother who sacrificed freedom for him keeps the deadly immortal standing, but in order to achieve that vow, he needs the help of the brilliant Dr. Promise Williams who understands the underpinnings of the universe but has never figured out the human beings inhabiting it.

 

This ‘Dark Protector’ romance is a stimulating, emotional, rocking and explosive read! Ivar and Promise are two wonderfully strong characters that stand out and obviously belong together and the romance between is sweet and full of feeling that warms readers’ hearts even as it confuses Promise’s. This hero and heroine is so very different but it is truly remarkable how much Ivar understands her and really and truly tries to make her comfortable with dominating alpha ways and he is oh so smexy!

 

The plot is fast paced and takes readers on truly fantastical and exhilarating journey through an emotionally gripping, thrillingly dangerous journey to rescue a friend. The rescue itself poses lots of danger for the rescuer but it also poses danger for all worlds which keeps the readers holding their breath in anticipation and excitement throughout this riveting and thrilling read, which might become a problem since readers can’t put the book down once they start reading it.
