New Release Review! The Gift (Pleasure Times Four #2 / Kirsten O'Shea Universe) Candace Blevins!

 

 

I am visiting with the supernaturals of Chattanooga once again where a lot can happen in one year, especially during the most magical season of the year! Enjoy and don't forget to add the Scorching Hot romance - THE GIFT, the 2nd book in the Pleasure Times Four series by Candace Blevins to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Pleasure Times Four

 

Kieran and Gwen are powerful Strigorii vampires who’ve been married over three and a half centuries. Their Master Vampire, Abbott, realizes the couple is on the eve of dissolving their marriage, but no one wants to see their long-time romantic partnership break up. Abbott hopes the gift of a shared blood servant who happens to be a trained bodyguard can solve several problems in one solution. With the coming war so close, he needs to take steps to protect the couple who manage his vast fortune. If the former slave can also help them find common ground and rekindle their romance? Even better.

 

Ajax was abducted from foster care as a small child and raised as a slave. Chosen for his size, he was forced into hard physical labor to create a huge, intimidating physique. His original Vampire Master had the slave trained to be his personal bodyguard, and Ajax excels at it. When Abbott took over the territory, he tried letting Ajax work for Drake Security, but the werewolf was miserable.

 

How can a swan possibly fit into this? Arabella’s mother sold her eggs to the traffickers, and the swanling was hatched into slavery. When the Swan Queen took over the crown, she tried to award Arabella her freedom, but it never took. Surprisingly, it’s possible the little swan might be the glue that holds everything together.

 

Our story starts on one Christmas and ends on the next. A lot can happen in a year.

 

 

 

Kieran and Gwen have been married for over three a half centuries, but they are having problems and in an attempt to keep them dissolving the marriage, Abbott gives them the gift of a shared blood servant who happens to be a trained bodyguard. Raised as a slave, Ajax excels at being a bodyguard, but his werewolf was miserable working for Drake Security. Arabella is a swan that was hatched into slaver but when the Swan Queen tried to award her with freedom, it didn’t take. This story starts on one Christmas and ends on the next.

 

This foursome romance is a passionate and emotionally gripping read that shares insights in the making of an unorthodox family that includes two vampires, a wolf shifter and a swan. The chemistry that flows between these characters sizzle with heat and passion and the relationship is full of some scorching hot intimacy of varying types of interaction. If readers are not into reading about kinky, bdsm scenes, then this book is not for them, but for others it is a steamy, emotional read with two heroines and two heroes that easily draw readers into their story and refuse to let go and by the end readers have really gotten to know these characters and what makes them tick.

 

The plot is steady paced and covers a full year of suspenseful and emotionally turbulent day to day events that would take place in the making of this kind of family including supernatural politics that have to be considered. The story also some suspenseful and exciting events as readers get the highlights from the supernatural war from this foursome’s point of view. Readers definitely find that once they begin…they definitely don’t want to put this book down until they have read every last page.

Candace Blevins has published more than forty books. She lives with her husband of 20 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving young teens all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming. The family’s beloved, goofy, retired racing greyhound is usually at her side as she writes, quietly keeping her company.

 

Candace writes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary BDSM Romance, and a kick-ass Motorcycle Club series. 

 

Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, and three different species of vampires exist, as well as a variety of other mythological beings.

 

Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human books, and gives some secondary characters their happily ever after. 

 

Her three paranormal series are written so you can read one series, or all three, should you prefer only a particular genre.

 

Her Safeword Series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different take on the lifestyle.

A 5 STAR Release Day Review & A 5 Star Recent Release Review! Dragon Knight of Khoth & The Gift (Dark Warrior Alliance #17 & 17.5) Brenda Trim & Tami Julka!

 

 

Lorne is a dragon knight to his core. He joined the Khoth Maahes as a young dragon and quickly rose to second Lieutenant. His days are spent fighting the Unseelie and guarding the royal family. When the Cuelebre King assigns Lorne to play bodyguard to Cambree, the realm’s hottest commodity, he is insulted. His skills are better suited for battle, not following a dragon-breeder around town. His arrogance results in Cambree being attacked, and the female adds insult to injury by firing him. Determined to earn her trust and respect, Lorne sets out to ensure her ongoing safety, but finds himself undeniably drawn to the female. Their passion burns hotter than his dragon fire, but Lorne isnt the only male vying for her attention. He's prepared to go down in flames to win her heart, but if he isn't careful, that's exactly what will happen.

 

Cambree enjoys her quiet life. Too shy for her own good, she prefers to melt in the shadows where she's lived her entire life. When the king returns to Khoth, and resumes the ancient ceremony identifying fertile females, Cambree is shocked when she is chosen. She's never been on a single date and is suddenly the focus of every male on Khoth. The irrisistible, sexy knight assigned to protect Cambree stirs a desire she's never felt before, but when she needs Lorne the most, he's nowhere to be found. Then Cambree draws the attention of the most dangerous creature in the realm, and becomes the target of a sinister plan that could rob the Cuelebre dragons of their ability to procreate.

 

Will Lorne and Cambree find their happily ever after, or will the entire dragon species burn away like embers of a fire?

 

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

 

 


The newest book in the Dark Warrior Alliance series is fiery and gripping with strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers in and refuse to let go. Lorne and Cambree are the kind of hero and heroine that readers can really sink their teeth into, they differ in so much, temperament, lifestyles and more but they fit together so well. Too bad that they have to work through so much of their own issues before they accept that the blistering attraction that they feel for each other is so much more than either thought. Readers can’t help but sympathize with Cambree after what she’s been through and her vulnerabilities that keep her from reaching out, while the sexy dragon might need a few lessons in feelings, he certainly knows how to keep readers’ hearts fluttering. The relationship is sweet and completely tangled up in emotional turmoil while these two heat up the pages with their fiery chemistry throughout.

 

The fast paced plot keeps readers holding on the edge of their seats with lots of thrilling suspense and exhilarating danger as their enemies are up to some major plotting and have some surprises in the store for Angus and his dragons. The spine tingling tension builds as a mysterious suitor competes for Cambree’s attentions, King Zander and his family visit Khoth and ask for a surprising favor while unexpected twists from the bad guys keeps readers guessing and waiting for the next explosive event or bloody battle. Oh, let’s not forget, there is still things happening back in the Tehrex Realm that just whets readers appetites for more. There is no way for readers put down this story once they have begun and there is not a dull moment to be found.

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

Christmas is a time of joy, goodwill, and cherished moments spent with friends and family. But not for Ren. The holidays are a painful reminder that he's alone and depressed. The worst part is knowing it's all his fault. He put his parents through hell while in the throes of addiction, and despite years of sobriety, the damage is irreparable. His only solace is a beautiful angel that visits his dreams, offering comfort and support. Arial consumes his every waking thought and is the object of his nightly fantasies. Unfortunately, she is nothing more than a figment of his imagination.

 

When a surreal event brings Arial into his life, and ultimately his bed, Ren must face something greater than addiction. Forgiving himself for past mistakes is an impossible task, and it will take the love of an angel to prove to him that everyone deserves a second chance.

 

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

 

 

This delightful story in the Dark Warrior Alliance series is set during the Christmas holidays and warms the heart with as the strong, captivating characters discover forgiveness, hope, love and joy. Ariel and Ren’s story is really short but packs quite a punch as rule breaking occurs, dangerous fights with an enemy and a feisty angel refuses to take no for an answer. There is no way for readers to stay emotionally detached during this thrilling and enjoyable read that is full of sweet romance and electric chemistry. This story does not have to be read in sequence but it touches on an event that started in Dragon Knight of Koth, but has not reached its conclusion but that event is in no way influenced by this story.

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

 

Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami's strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.

 

Their life journeys led them both to Texas and one another. They fast became best friends and can always be found together. Whether it's lounging by the pool or writing steamy love scenes, they are frequently seen laughing and smiling!
