REVIEW BY DEBBIE - Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings
Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings - Philip Reeve,Jennifer James,Susan Griscom,Tami Lund,Gwen Knight,Kristen Strassel,Michelle Reid,Julia Mills,Ever Coming,Rebecca Rivard,Skye Jones,Rosalie Redd

Indulge in a darkly decadent and sinfully sensual world. 

A world where vampires are real, rich and hungry, a world where Blood Courtesans satisfy all their needs. 

Come, let fangs slip into your throat and awaken you to a whole new life. 

A boxed set of BRAND NEW stories in this popular series. 

Warning: This isn't your momma's vampire romance. It's not Twilight or the Shade, either. It's Blood Courtesans: Luxury, fast cars, adventure, whirlwind romance and cold, hard fangs. Got blood?

 

@RosalieRedd, #Paranormal, #Romance, #Anthology, 4 out of 5 (very good)

Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings - Philip Reeve,Jennifer James,Susan Griscom,Tami Lund,Gwen Knight,Kristen Strassel,Michelle Reid,Julia Mills,Ever Coming,Rebecca Rivard,Skye Jones,Rosalie Redd
Welcome to the world of the Blood Courtesan. If you are not aware, this is a series by Michelle Fox that starts with Reborn: Myra. This box set is all set in the same world, but with a multitude of stories by different authors, all putting their slant on Michelle Fox's world.
 
I won't review each story separately, instead my review is of the box set as a whole. As with all box sets, some of the stories stand out more than others. HOWEVER, they are all good! I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. If I had to choose a favourite though, on pain of being bitten (and not in a good way), then I would choose Concealed: Lexi by Rosalie Redd. This story simply grabbed me as I do so love a tortured hero and strong heroine. This story ticked all the right boxes for me.
 
Every story in this collection was exceptionally written, with a multitude of characters and situations. There should be enough to keep everyone happy! There were no editing or grammatical errors in any of the stories that disrupted my reading flow. I loved how each story was completely different from the others, just being linked by the Blood Courtesans.
 
For those that haven't yet stepped into this world, I can highly recommend it. And a box set is a perfect place to start. Absolutely 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. *

Loving a Fairy Godmother by Danielle Monsch
Loving a Fairy Godmother - Danielle Monsch

Tiernan is in trouble. His Fairy Godmother led him to the dragon all right, but said dragon caused him a mortal injury and the Fairy Godmother cannot stop feeling sorry for herself instead of helping him...So he makes a wish to be just like her, and he ends up being the only Fairy Godfather in the Faerie Realm, and in love with a fellow Fairy Godmother who'd rather see him gone.

Thirty years later, Reina just might get her wish, since Tiernan is the only FG without a HEA on file. He also got an ultimatum—get a HEA or go back to where he was before his wish was granted. Which means dying. They cannot have that, so Reina is tasked with assisting him in getting Cinderella her HEA...And the girl might not be the only one.


I absolutely loved this story. It had it all, wonderful characters, dimples, humor, magic, a little bit of drama, some conflict, and romance.

Cinderella's was a given (with a little twist), but Tiernan and Reina's held all my attention.
They had the smolder, the attraction, the UST, and the angst and drama, yet the conflict, though not easily and quickly resolved, worked both in creating tension and offering character development and growth, while also serving as additional background for the two characters.

Despite the diminutive length of the story, the plot had depth, the characters were developed nicely, the conflict was resolved at a reasonable speed, there was no rush to/for anything, and yes, the romance was adorable. I was rooting for the two idiots from the get-go, and I'm glad my hunch about FG Sara proved to be right.

A truly lovely little story.

Year One
Year One - Nora Roberts

Holy cow...I really enjoyed this. It was a total departure from what I'm used to from Nora Roberts (the In Death books included), but yet still felt like a Nora Roberts book.

 

When the world is hit with a fast acting virus, nearly 80% of the world's population is eradicated. The other 20% are immune. Those who are left have to pick up the pieces and begin again. Among those survivors are those who have magical abilities, the Uncanny. The story follows several groups of survivors--magical and non magical--who eventually manage to merge into one group.

 

The book is engrossing, fast paced, and despite having a rather large cast of characters, manages to give each one enough page time that you (or me at least) can't help but care and root for them.

 

I will caution, though, don't get too attached. Characters do die in this one.

 

I borrowed this from the library, but will be getting my own copy to have for my home library.
