Only the strongest of all participants will have the honor to search for the stone. The elders aren’t taking things lightly, and all the games are difficult. Plus, something dark is killing the participants and trying to stop the quest from being completed.


The warrior siren’s young shoulders carry the burden and hopes of the region when she leaves with a team of warrior sirens to recruit a mage to stop the total destruction of the earth’s habitat.

 

Recruiting the mage won’t be as easy has the elders foretold. Yet, in a turn of the events, Alay finds herself with two gorgeous mages vying for attention and willing to help her on her quest.

 

Bonds will be forged, and trusts will be betrayed in this epic quest that leads sirens, humans, mages, and dark creatures into a race against time to find the powerful Legacy Stone and use it for either good or evil.

 

Siren female warriors, sexy mages, and dark creatures live in this dystopian world where the Black Magic threatens to destroy an already dying world. If you are a fan of Hunger Games, The 100, and Divergent, you'll love this one!

 

Siren’s Calling is a stand-alone, full-length, Reverse Harem, Dystopian novel in The Cursed Seas Collection.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


This enthralling reverse harem romance keeps readers glued to the pages with lots thrilling suspense and a sense of adventure as sirens, humans, mages and dark creatures race against time to find a powerful stone. The characters in this romance are bold, vibrant and easily draw readers into their story which has them on quest to save the siren’s world and eventually the whole world. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic future with black magic threatening to destroy what is left of the dying world and the authors brought it to life and sparked readers’ imaginations which make it easy for readers to feel as if they are partaking in the quest as well. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout with lots of adrenaline pumping and suspenseful events including creatively described magical battles, emotional turmoil, betrayals, spine chilling events, exciting meetings and life altering changes.

 

The romance of the story is sweet and pretty much clean even though this is a reverse harem romance and it kind of unfulfilling in that respect with the way the relationships come about. Alayah leaves on the quest but has to leave her love at home and while on the journey she discovers two more men along the way. The story has some intimate scenes between Alayay and each of her lovers but there is something missing from the whole process but that does not take away from the enjoyment of this story as readers can’t stop turning the pages of the non-stop explosive action and suspense of this story.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Book details:

Wolf Tamer 
by Yumoyori Wilson 
(Claiming My Pack #1) 
Publication date: October 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

 


Synopsis:

 

An Orphan Girl. A Group of Wolves. A Destined Fate for War.


Don’t you ever wish to find where you belong? A place where you can rest your head without worrying about being jumped or your possessions being taken from you? Not like I had much, to say the least.


A pendant, an ancient blade, and a picture of my murdered family were all I had left when I was five years old. Foster homes to homeless shelters, I never found a place of refuge. I simply didn’t belong, and everyone made it their duty to remind me of my predicament. Until I finally came across a place that felt like home.


Sacred Moon Shelter for Endangered Wolves. I’d stumbled upon the sanctuary when I was near death, but I was miraculously saved.


Since then, I’ve become a Wolf Tamer; the only one who can get close to touching the six rare breeds. When I’m with them, I feel safe and sometimes wish I could be like one of them and escape this cruel world.


But such inhumanity strikes home, a group of hunters shows up, ready to take my wolves to an unknown place or murder them in cold blood. I won’t allow them to kill the only true family I’d ever known.


My name is Harper Blake, and I vow to claim and protect my own.


Wolf Tamer is a new Wolf Shifter Reverse Harem Romance. Recommended for 18+ Audiences.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


This paranormal reverse harem romantic serial is off to a great start. The characters are strong, compelling and easily capture readers’ attentions right from the start. The chemistry sizzles and the passion is hot while the romance is quite sweet. Harper tugs at readers’ heartstrings as this first part of the romance gives readers her beginnings and how she came to be where she is at and how she came to fall in love with Ian, her first love. The story is full of emotional turmoil and has some devastating events including betrayals, secrets, and outright lies which makes it hard put for any reader to remain emotionally detached from the characters and their story.

 

The plot is steady paced and covers lots of ground with the story starting off when Harper is a child with a very intense and traumatic event and the suspense just keeps building from there. The author created an intriguing world with a complimentary setting for her story which adds to the story arc and there are some surprising twists included in the story to keep readers wondering. So while there are a few minor drawbacks to the story, like the cliffhanger ending, the story fascinates readers and ensures that they want to know everything especially since the revealing of secrets during the conclusion builds up the suspense for the next part.

5 STAR New Release Review! Renee's Mates (Churchill Polar Bears) Shelley Munro!

 

Hello Readers! Today I am going to share my 5 star review of Renee's Mates - A paranormal revere harem romance by Shelley Munro!

 


Four brothers seek one woman. Mission: revenge.

 

Soldier Renee Paulson and her best friend witnessed a murder. When her friend dies in suspicious circumstances, Renee flees to a secluded town. A helicopter pilot, she flies tourists over the tundra and delivers supplies while keeping a low profile.

 

Like most werewolves, the Taktuq brothers are family oriented. Their younger sister is adamant Renee had an affair with her soldier husband, and they promise to investigate. Exhaustive research leads them to the Arctic town of Churchill. Renee Paulson or Renee James, the name she goes by now, is a sexy surprise.

She’s solitary and wary, and it seems she is their mate. Perturbed, the brothers push on with wooing and romance while conflicted by their obligation to their sister. Peeling away Renee’s protective layers reveals a desirable, intelligent woman—one they wish to keep in their lives.

 

When an assassin catches up with Renee, the Taktuq brothers embrace their wolves to save her. They’ll do anything to guard their mate, even protect her from their sister.

 

Contains a strong, plain-Jane heroine, four werewolf heroes with attitude, lots of secret sexy times, a pissed younger sister and an assassin with a big gun.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 


The newest romance in the Churchill Polar Bear series is a red hot and amazing read. Renee and the Taktuq brothers are strong, captivating characters that easily pull readers into their story which starts off with the four brothers on a revenge mission. The heat between the four brothers and Renee burns brighter with every turn of the page and the romance is sweet but hey there is four of them and only one of her, so you get the usual questioning of the relationship by the heroine but Renee is made of stronger stuff than most, so the passion quickly becomes scorching hot.

 

The suspense in the story builds throughout this fast paced plot as the brothers have to decide between the revenge that their sister wants and their mate and to really get the adrenaline pumping, Renne’s past has caught up to her and is one step away from silencing her forever. Surprising twists add a bit more excitement to the story and readers never find a dull moment so they stay glued to the pages. Oh and readers are happy that the sexy polar bears put in appearance but this book is all for the wolves.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Book Tour with Giveaway, Excerpt & Review! Finding Luna (Pride #1) Becca Fanning!

 

 

Finding Luna
Pride Book 1
by Becca Fanning
Genre: RH Paranormal Romance

 


What happens when three Lion Shifters have to share one Mate?

 

Maryellen was born into a life, if given the chance, she would gladly give away. Though she is probably one of the wealthiest people in the country, Maryellen has never wanted her wealth. Nor her family who is constantly trying to find ways to steal her wealth from her. After being the sole heir to her grandfather’s fortune, everyone has been out to get her ever since. After countless kidnapping attempts and always being afraid to fall asleep, El is finally taking the step to date someone and perhaps find true love.

 

But when she meets Ryan on a blind date, her world changes forever. She is plunged into the world of the paranormal as Ryan reveals his true identity; that he is the leader of the local Pride of Lions. And more than that is the fact that Ryan knows El is her mate. And to make matters more complicated, Ryan is part of a Triad of brothers. Meaning, El has three mates. As El tries to comprehend this crazy new life she is a part of, she can’t deny how right this all feels. She now has the protection of shifters and three men who will love her and keep her safe.

 

But, even after accepting her new life, she can’t let go of the past. She will have to find the truth behind why she is always targeted and come to understand that it’s not just for her money. She will have to make tough decisions, but at least now she knows she will never be alone again.

 

USA Today Bestselling Author Becca Fanning brings you a compelling and steamy Reverse Harem Shifter Romance!

 

 

 

The first book in this reverse harem paranormal romance serial easily draws readers in with strong, vibrant characters and an intriguing concept. The romance is sweet but definitely hot and stirring while promising to get even hotter as the story continues but the relationship is has a couple of obstacles that stands in its way…like finding out the man you are dating is not human and he wants her to mate with not only him but two others. There is lots of emotional upheaval in this story not only from the romance but also from vulnerabilities and El’s family issues that has readers wanting to grab her and give a great big hug even while they are wishing they could have those hot sexy lions for their very own.

 

The suspense builds throughout the story as El struggles to accept everything but there is also quite a bit of excitement in the story as several twists spice things up even more. There is also some adrenaline pumping action as El is targeted for kidnapping and her men try to discover who is behind it and why. The author has created a fascinating and sexy new world that easily catches the readers interest and holds them captive throughout although since it is a serial romance the story does end on a major cliffhanger. While this story is has some red hot passionate scenes, it’s not all about the intimate scenes as it has a fast paced plot full of suspense and easily keeps readers turning the pages until they have read every last word.

Most people hate first dates.


The truth was, Maryellen Forsythe-Drew, or El to her friends, hated them too. But on this particular occasion, she had a gut feeling.


And that gut feeling was telling her that this date was going to be epic.


Sure, it wasn’t the first time the gut feeling had made an appearance, and had, ultimately, let her down. Like the time she’d been certain she’d be allowed more leeway with her campaigns on one of her charities when instead the head of project development had come on to her.


Filing for sexual harassment, and inadvertently getting the flexibility she’d wanted as a result, wasn’t how she figured gut feelings should work, but…


“Wow, way to blow your good mood, El,” she grumbled under her breath as she took a seat at the swanky restaurant where she’d arranged to meet with her blind date.


He wasn’t late. El was just insanely early. The need to get here, to get the ball rolling as it were, had been driving her since they’d made the damn arrangements on Thursday.


The anticipation of waiting for Saturday had practically killed her. But she’d already had arrangements with her parents on Friday night, and though she’d have loved to have skipped that particular session in torture, the misery from breaking that date wasn’t worth it.


Even for a date that had more potential than any other she’d had this year.


She blew out a breath as the server appeared. It was a woman, and praying for female solidarity instead of sisterly bitchiness, she asked, “Do I look flustered?”


The woman, a young blonde barely out of high school, blinked at her. “Ma’am?”


“I’m about to have a first date,” El explained, her stomach rumbling with more nerves. “I was just hoping I don’t look as bright pink as I feel.”


The server, Diana from her badge, smiled at her. “No, you don’t look pink. You look quite cute.”


El blinked. “Really?”


“Yeah.” Diana grinned. “I bat for your team, so you can trust me when I say that.”


El’s mouth dropped open. Feeling more flustered now, her hands rose and fell several times on her lap before they settled on digging into her upper thighs. “Oh my God, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to impose.”


Could she have messed that up more royally?


Diana snorted. “Don’t be silly. I only mentioned it so you’d know when I say cute, I mean it. I can tell, you’re very nervous though.”


“I am,” El confessed, and it felt weird to have a confessor who was at least ten years younger than her, but damn, she’d take anything she could get. “I met him on that new dating site, Pride in Love. My friends dared me to go on it and I thought it was just stupid, but then I met Ryan, and…” She blew out a long breath.


“He’s like the whole package, you know?”


Diana’s smile was warm. “I’m glad. So why if he’s the ‘whole package’ are you nervous? You should be excited!”


“Because I’m a dork, and I don’t want to screw things up,” El admitted. “I’m already here forty minutes early…”


Diana blinked in surprise. “Wow! That’s definitely early. Can I get you something to drink or eat to settle your nerves?”

“I don’t normally drink,” El confessed again. “But on this occasion, I’ll have a white wine spritzer. Maybe that will calm me down. I really don’t want to mess this up.”


“Well, you look beautiful, and you’re nice and friendly, El. I don’t see why you should be any different when Ryan comes by.”


Something about Diana’s words before she bustled off had El sitting up straighter. The server was right.


She was a nice woman. Easy to talk to, friendly and caring. On the outside, she wasn’t bad to look at. Her friends said she was beautiful but El knew they were just being kind—if she dropped thirty pounds, she’d be beautiful.


As El’s mom often said, “You have such a pretty face, darling.” That wonderful compliment often came when El arrived at the family home, dressed formally as her mother required, and always feeling wanting in comparison to her stick thin sisters-in-law—a feeling her mother encouraged.


El shrugged off the thought because if she had her parents on her mind she’d never charm Ryan.


Even thinking about her family was enough to subdue her, and El knew that wasn’t the woman Ryan had come to know.


Within the anonymity of the dating site, she’d allowed her natural vivacity to flow free when they’d chatted, and she wanted Ryan to meet that side of her. The uninhibited woman who could and would appear when she wasn’t being cowed by her mommy and daddy.

 

Irritation flared, and she embraced it. Embraced the heat because it burned that inner core of cold that she’d created over the years as a defense mechanism.

Spying Diana coming with her drink, El took a look around the restaurant and smiled. It was a fancy place, that was for sure.


Bright white, it should have been cold, but huge golden orbs were suspended from the ceiling in different heights, creating a wave of sorts. The orbs were like miniature moons. All of them in assorted sizes.


They swirled about the room, even appearing on the floor; in corners or over on the dancefloor in the center of the restaurant, which was bordered by the bright orbs.


Tables were sectioned off for privacy with low frosted glass partitions, but the bright cerulean blue tablecloths were a spark of color in the otherwise white restaurant. Even the waitstaff wore all white.


She looked at the doorway where the maître d’ stood. The woman was tall, close to six feet, and she was the only staff member that El could see who wore color—the same bright blue as the tablecloths. Her white starched blouse was tucked into high waist trousers, and the result was a tailored dream.


El wished like hell she had the figure to pull off something so simple, but she was way too round for that.


A pear when she needed to be a ruler.


Feeling Diana’s approach, she was about to turn when she saw Ryan—immediately recognizing him from his pictures online. He didn’t come from the front door, but from a back room behind the maître d’. He stopped to talk to the woman, smiled at her as he bent over the stand, and studied the plans she kept on there.


Just as El was wondering whether Ryan managed the restaurant or something, he kissed the maître d’s cheek.


Bile tried and failed to gurgle around her insides, but jealousy did. It hadn’t been a sexual kiss, El tried to reason with herself.
Still, seeing it hurt.


The thought had her stiffening in her seat because she didn’t own the damn man.


It had been a kiss on the cheek, not an all-out make out session in the doorway. Friends kissed friends, right? It could be perfectly natural. Innocent, she thought frantically.


Before the tension from her date kissing another woman could flood her, Diana appeared and popped her drink down in front of her. The server must have seen where she was looking because she half-turned and saw Ryan.


El frowned at Diana’s reaction—the other woman dropped her tray to her side and declared, “You’re the Ryan?”


El flushed. “Excuse me?” Mortification succeeded in turning her bright pink. What the hell was going on?


Ryan approached the table, and now he was nearer, and not kissing cheeks with beautiful members of staff, she had to admit he was better looking in person.


God, talk about a total understatement. Better looking? That was like saying he was handsome.


Ryan was…


Well, handsome wasn’t the word.


He was a god.


That was it.


No other way of describing him.


Taller than the maître d’, she knew from his profile he was six-seven. But he wore it well. He wasn’t thin and lean, but lithe and strong. His muscles were evident through his brutally tailored navy suit. It clung in all the right places and displayed a soupcon of a white silk shirt that lay flat against abs so delineated, she could see them through the fabric. He wore no tie, but he had a little pocket handkerchief… the lack of one and the presence of the other equalizing the semi-formal look.


His hair was a blond any woman would have killed for. So many shades of gold, her own hands longed to touch the silky locks. He was tanned and bronze, and his eyes were a bright blue that seemed to scan the situation with ease.


He had a strong Roman nose, a wide brow, lips made for kissing, and a jaw so hulking she knew from looks alone how stubborn he was.


All in all, she felt totally underdressed and overwhelmed.


Who was this god and why had he elected to date her?


She gulped when he shot her a smile that made her melt. Just like that.
Jesus.


His nostrils flared a second, but before she could freak out over whether he could smell her arousal—who could do that? No one, she desperately reassured herself—he turned to Diana and wrapped an arm around her.
Wow, this guy was tactile.
