Stone Cursed: Taurus (Highland Gargoyles #6) by Lisa Carlisle
Stone Cursed: Taurus (Highland Gargoyles #6) - Lisa Carlisle

Stone Cursed is the sixth book in the Highland Gargoyles series, although it can be read as a standalone being as it is part of the Zodiac Shifters set too. Some references are made to the other gargoyles - where they live, why they left, the war, etc, but nothing you need to read for this to make sense.

 

Alec is one of the shifters who left the Isle of Stone to move to the Highlands of Scotland. He misses the sea though, so takes every opportunity to fly near to it. On one such flight, he hears voices and goes to investigate, where he finds more than he bargained for. With one wizard rapidly going dark, and a witch who believes in the light, Alec is confused given his history with witches. However, when the witch, Veda, saves him, he will do all he can to save her in return.

 

This is a fast-paced and smooth story that nevertheless gives  you all you could want. There were no editing or spelling mistakes that disrupted my reading flow, and I was able to read this book in one go as it kept my attention. This is part of two great series, and I can highly recommend either one. A wonderful read, and recommended by me.

 

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith

This is a nice little book that covers the space of a day. (American) heroine and (English) hero end up sitting together on a flight from the United States to England, both ducking across the pond for family events.

 

Heroine Hadley’s family was torn to pieces when her father fell in love with an Englishwoman and abandoned them, and now she’s expected to attend the London wedding. This story is as much about family as romance.

 

As for the romance, I think the author managed the culture clash aspects well, and didn’t push things too far over such a short timeframe.

 

A sweet little book overall, though I’m not sure the father deserved to be so easily forgiven!

Review! Half-Blood Dragon (Dragon Born Saga #1) K.N. Lee!
Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy - K.N. Lee,Cait Reynolds

 

 

New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee presents Half-Blood Dragon, the first epic fantasy adventure in the Dragon Born Trilogy.

 

*Revised & lengthened with a bonus chapter!*

 

Pirates, dragons, mermaids. Embark on a coming of age journey that will leave you breathless.

 

A lady-in-waiting's job is to follow orders. For Rowen, it is to execute her stepfather's plan to elevate the family's station by an advantageous marriage to the crown prince. Intrigue and seduction fill Rowen's days, but the prophecies that haunt her dreams at night warn her that death awaits.

 

The taunts of her sleepless nights are realized when she is framed and sentenced to death for the prince's murder.

 

For a human, there’s nowhere to run and no one to turn to in a kingdom where power is tightly held by full-blooded dragon shifters.

 

It will take a stranger from the shadows to save Rowen from execution and reveal a truth full of terrifying potential. It is time for Rowen to find the courage to accept her fate, awaken her gift, and set the world on fire.

 

Change is coming. So is a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world.

 

 

Embarking on this breathless and fascinating journey is one that will readers will certainly enjoy as it brings pirates, dragons, sorcerers and even mermaids to brilliant and vivid life.

 

Rowen is planning to elevate her family’s status by marrying the crown prince, but prophecies haunt her dreams, intrigue and seduction fill her days and death awaits. Change is coming with a new prophecy that threatens the fate of the entire world and Rowen will have to accept her fate, awaken her gift and set the world on fire.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily enchant readers into their world full of thrilling suspense, excitement and daring plots that keep readers on the edge of their seat during this steady to fast paced plot. Most of the story is all about the intrigue which keeps ensures readers never have a dull moment as they try to determine what will happen next especially since it is filled with startling twists that cause astounding changes to Rowen’s life. There is also quite a bit of emotional issues that ensures that readers feel as if they understand the characters and which certainly adds depth to the story as Rowen faces prejudice, danger, and destiny. There’s not a whole lot of romance in this part of the story, although there is the seduction of the Crown Prince which is essential to Rowen’s stepfather’s plans.

 

The characters and the world are well developed and the author described the world and her characters vividly so it made is easy for me to imagine each and every scene as I became caught up in the story. The author did end the story at a decent point, but the story does have a cliffhanger as it is part of a saga, so I am looking forward to discovering what happens next in Rowen’s world.

Review! Summer Rhythm - A Night's Embrace Spin-off by Brandy L. Rivers!
Summer Rhythm: A spin-off of Nights Embrace - Brandy L Rivers,Tara Shaner

 

 

Rhythms tend to repeat…


One girl has always captivated Doug Walsh. Every time he thinks she’ll let him in, she proves him wrong. Years later, he spots her in the crowd. He’ll do everything in his power to keep his fool heart intact.


After dismissing her parent’s expectations, Chloe has taken her life by the reins. When she sees the boy who captured her heart, but her mother forbade, she’s drawn back in. This time, she wants to make up for her past mistakes.


Can she change their summer rhythm? Or has she trampled his heart too many times?

 

 

Doug, the Night’s Embrace band member in the Others of Seattle series get his story in Summer Rhythm and what a delightfully sweet read it is.

 

Doug Walsh has always been captivated by one girl and he’ll do everything in his power to keep his fool heart intact when he spots her years later. Chloe is back and this time she is determined to take her life by the reins and live it her way and then means making up for past mistakes in the hopes of winning back the boy she fell for and her mother forbade. These two characters are strong and easily captivate readers with their story as they work to overcome the past in order to hope for the future and this heartfelt romance keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the couple try to overcome family obstacles.

 

Summer Rhythm, although short, is a delightful read with wonderful characters that captured my heart. It is a spinoff of Night’s Embrace, although it is a standalone story. If being read in conjunction with the Others of Seattle series, it should be read after number four to prevent spoilers because the characters from the series do make appearances.
