Great paranormal/sci-fi
Draekon Heart: Exiled to the Prison Plan... Draekon Heart: Exiled to the Prison Planet: A Sci-Fi Menage Romance (Dragons in Exile Book 3) - Lili Zander,Lee Savino

Draekon Heart by Lee Savino and Lili Zander is a great read.  This is a menage book though, so it may not be for everyone.  The Savino/Zander duo has delivered a well-written book.  I love the characters.  Ryanna, Zorux and Thrax's story is loaded with the action and adventure you expect from a sci-fi and plenty of drama and sizzlin' hot sex that you expect from a shifter book.  I enjoyed reading Draekon Heart and look forward to the next read by the dynamic duo of Lee Savino and Lili Zander.  Draekon Heart is book 3 of the Dragons in Exile Series and it can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading the first 2 books first.  It just makes understanding the book much easier.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Awesome Historical Romance
Her Gilded Prison (Daughters of Sin Book 1) - Beverley Oakley

Her Gilded Prison by Beverley Oakley is a great read. This historical romance is a well-written book. Ms Oakley has given us a story with a phenomenal cast of characters. Stephen and Sybil's story is loaded with drama, bits of humor and sizzling hot sexy bits. Sybil is married to a man that doesn't want her...but his heir does. This is a bit of a twisted tale, but a great read. I enjoyed reading Her Gilded Prison and look forward to reading more from Beverley Oakley in the future. Her Gilded Prison is book 1 in the Daughters of Sin Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Nameless One by Lily Adile Lamb
The Nameless One - Lily Adile Lamb

Very monotonous. It was somewhat OK for the first half, but short after I stopped caring for pretty much everything and everyone, save for those poor sheep lost in the snow storm. They trusted Faine to keep them safe and instead he took them up the frozen mountain to feed on frigging snow, cause - duh! - good luck finding grass during a nor'easter.

I believe I finished the book, but maybe I skipped too many pages in the end, I don't know... I need coffee to wake up @.@ 1.6 stars.

 

Poor sheep, tho :( And wolves :( At least the nameless one should have let them finish the dead ones. Wolves need to eat, too.

The Velvet Prison
The VELVET PRISON - Sheldon Friedman
Travis Kane grew up under the watchful eye and heavy hand of his grandfather, Barclay Kane.  Travis' father was killed fighting in the Great War, meanwhile, his mother continued to grow distant until the birth of his baby sister.  Shortly after giving birth, Hannah Kane gathered up her things and her new baby and disappeared.  Left with his grandfather, Travis continued to practice the art that he loved, but was continually pushed toward a career in law by Barclay. When Travis becomes serious about his art, he decides to show and sell some paintings in a speakeasy.  Through the speakeasy, Travis finds friends that pull him into the underworld of rum running, but also opens him up to the world of professional art. Meanwhile, Lindsay Wayne is entering the world of professional theatre with the help of her mother.  Lindsay and Travis' worlds soon collide through Travis' friend, Gino. 
 
This historical saga took me on a journey from the end of WWI through the beginning of WWII. Through Travis and Barclay I had a very unique view of the politics of World War I, prohibition, the depression and the tensions rising to World War II.  More interesting than the perspective on history however, was the family dynamic of the Kanes.  From the beginning, the family had significant issues. Clearly, Travis' mother felt uncomfortable in Barclay's house, there are several reasons explored throughout the story, but none that we know for sure.  Though, there was something strong enough for Hannah to force herself to abandon her son and leave with her newborn daughter.  Travis is the most affected by his mother's abandonment and his grandfather's pressure to make him into something he is not.  I'm not sure his character ever really comes to terms with his mother's actions or his grandfather's will.  However, I am glad that Travis seems to finally do what makes him happy in the end.  I was really interested in Travis' artwork, his style and the mission he was sent on.  Hopefully I will discover more in book two!
 
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
