Ann Gimpel's latest in her Dragon Lore Series, "To Love a Highland Dragon"

A shifter dragon has been under a sleeping curse for nearly 300 years, needless to say his reaction to his castle being gone, cars zooming by, pollution, women who he thinks are dressed like harlots, cell phones and OMG planes, well it's a little overwhelming. Thank goodness the person who first runs into him, takes it all in stride when she sees a gorgeous, but rather strangely dressed, slightly smelly and apparently has a bit of a mental problem, man show up seemingly from the bushes where she's walking by. The questions here is why are they not running in opposite directions, but instead seem to be drawn to each other. Although they seem to like each other physically, they both are leery but are willing to listen to each others stories. They discover they each have not only secrets but powers and they must now work together to stay alive from the evil that is still trying to destroy him. Along the way they meet fascinating people, both family and friends, whose help they'll need. Meanwhile the feelings they have for each other grow and they learn that not even hundreds of years can keep them apart. This is a great love story, filled with funny moments that just happens to involve dragons, witches, both good and bad ones, funny and oh so serious ones. If you read the first book in the series, you'll run into some of the characters in this story. It may seem like I've given a lot of spoilers but I've just given the highlights; you'll have to read to get the full exciting, funny, and so sensual story moments that happen in between my lines. I highly recommend this story to all who love not only highlanders, but dragons, witches, comical scenarios and beautiful, romantic love.  Buy it here or another of your book buy sites: http://amzn.to/2vW5cwR

 

Review for Ophelia Bells > Immortal Dragons: The First Four: Prequel + Books 1-3

Dragon Betrayed-Prequel-This book is hard to read, BUT even harder to put down. The lengths the two main character go through in their twisted love for each in this BDSM story is very hard to read because it is told so powerful that one finds it very hard to began reading it and not putting it down till the last anguished moment is read.
Dragon Blues–Book 1-The revised "Dragon Blues" is just amazing. It's expanded background concerning characters and events makes the story sooo much better. We learn new things about all the characters; the who's, why's and what's behind their actions. The return of the villain is terrific, making you both hate and feeling sorry for him. As always, Ophelia Bell has sexy, sensual action and the few BDSM scenes are right on. In this book we have two brothers who have lost their sister to "Hunters" because of what a woman on the Council did thousands of years before. One falls in love with her the first time he sees her, not knowing that she is the one he blames for his sisters death. She falls for him also and knows she has to tell him who she is. In his anger he rejects her. But his brother knows they are meant to be together; what he didn't know was that he too would fall in love with her. She learns she desires them both and knows it is more than lust but love as well. Can she convince them to forgive and Let's not forget about LOVE; in cause you haven't been paying attention to the authors other "Dragon" stories, dragon's love deeply and forever.
Dragon Void-Book 2- Chance brings the main characters hope and release, but too late as it arrives when death has come. It's filled with love, then loss and horrid pain; pain that lasted for centuries. Never doubt your destiny and what fate will bring; for love from your "One" is all encompassing whether it be between two, or more.
Dragon Splendor-Book 3-I will try to write my feelings for this story here, but in reality I don't have words good enough to tell you what a magnificent story it is. It is filled with so much emotion and passion i.e. fear, desires, hope, anger, just to name a few. We find the previous destruction of souls and lives has caused the three main characters and how fate will not let them go. We learn surprising information and I love the way the author gathers characters from her other stories helping you to view events from all angles. The ending brings, to me anyway, great joy and hope.
Dragon Rebel-Book 4-The 3 main characters in this book all have their own special powers and are able to use them to save not only their lives but all those that would be affected by an immortal queen driven steadily insane by the loss of her loved ones. The love the three have for each other is powerful and shown by care, need and immense desire for each other. The main story is magnificent, made even better by the inclusion of past characters and how their lives have progressed; this will include, but is not limited to, some intense BDSM scenes, as well as learning what one of the series most evil beings, in her quest for immortality and vengeance, has been up to. The authors ability, in her written words, to make us feel the pleasures and pain of her characters makes this reader both groan and gasp. I most highly recommend this bookset to all who love paranormal romance, it includes put you on fire sex, as well as gut wrenching pain. What the heck you waiting for, go now, get it, read it, review it. You won't be sorry, remember mature audience only.    Get it here or at one of your favorite book buy sites http://amzn.to/2w1WVIc

Tracy Cooper Poseys book 6, "Skinwalker's Bane" from her Endurance series

We continue on the 1,000 year journey with those on the Endurance. This is one of the most exciting stories yet; filled with wonderful new passionate characters, secrets, thrills and suspense. The time has come for a vote on a new ships captain and, as it is in our present time, the politics is running full blast with twist and turns, backstabbing and lies. During all this we learn of a new danger to the all the passengers of the Endurance, which in turn is a danger to the ship. How did it begin, who is responsible, how many have already been affected by it, and most important, can it be eliminated before more deaths are claimed. It appears that the Skinwalkers are some how involved, but can it be proven otherwise when it seems that someone is trying to point the preverbal finger at them? Among all the turmoil can two very different people find love and trust? I'm doing my best not to give spoilers so I HAVE to stop now before I give everything away. I love this sci-fi series and each book I've picked up to read doesn't get put down till it's finished. This one had be telling the family to leave me alone and let me read, to fix their own dinner for a change. I most highly recommend this book, this entire series, to lovers of sci-fi adventures.  Get it here or at your favorite buy site. http://amzn.to/2eIPlux

Review for Ann Gimpel's latest in her Soul Dance series, "Tranished Journey"

We have arrived to the final book in the Dance Soul series, and I hate saying that. This has been a surprising, action-packed, thrilling adventure into a dark historical, but paranormal adventure. We have new characters as well as ones from the 3 previous books. The group is trying to escape from the Nazi's, and their vampires, to where they hope the Celtic gods will help them strengthen their magic. In this book, demons have joined the vampires in trying to stop this group of gypsies, shifters, and a surprising power hidden by one of their own. We also have an unknown power held by an unsuspecting gypsy, who has just joined the group, as they attempt to escape from the evil that wants to destroy them. The world building in this series is just down right amazing and if one believed in the paranormal, extremely plausible. Do not pass up this great story, or any of the series. The author, as always, welds a strong, imaginative, well researched story to tell. I highly recommend both this book and series to all who love paranormal stories filled with "it could have happened" scenarios, magic, shifters and undying love.  Buy it here or any one of your favorite book sites http://amzn.to/2uRjUo0

Review - Reclaiming His Mate, authors first book in her Wolf River Series

First book in the authors Wolf River Series is a magnificent love story gone terribly wrong. While on Griffin's 3rd tour of duty he gets devastating news from his wife, Dakota. It tears them apart, he so filled with rage for her betrayal, that when he gets back home, he puts her out of their home without listening to what she has to say. Years later, due to a fire in her apartment building, she comes back into his life. This story is filled with memories of their bonded love but our hero continues to remember the pain and will not let go of his anger. The heroine has a truth to tell but can't get past what she feels was her fault, as well as the hurt he caused by putting her out and refusing to listen to someone he supposedly loved. They both believe they have to move on, or let go of their fears, making it worse than is, for they see no hope for a future together. I loved the emotions of helplessness, fear and behind it all, the love they once felt for each other. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down till I was finished; yes it was a long night. If your a fan of paranormal romance, you definitely have to get this book. Get it now at http://amzn.to/2gVBKkf
 

Review for Laxmi Hariharans new Many Lives Mega Boxset

AWAKENED - it's how the world in her series, Many Lives, begins. It has so much going on you don't dare put it down till you finish. It's the story of a young girl, Ruby, who as a child wanted only to be loved, something she never felt from her parents, especially her mother. Due to this absence of love, she commits a horrific act and runs away. Now a young woman, she miraculously lives through an attempt on her life and is forever changed. She can see on her body the physical changes and the pain it causes her when she seems to be in danger. But there are more changes that she will not know till later (and I'm not telling). This also bring into her life a protector, Vik, a policeman; only she's not sure what his real goal is, nor what her true feelings for him are. Then her mother comes back into her life causing death and destruction to make a so-called better world. Ruby's story is very powerful, magical one and how this story ends, well it's the end of life as she knew it and the beginning of a new one for mankind.
REDEMPTION - crosses over from her Many Lives Series. We have a female shifter, Leana, who begins the story as a cage fighter to help keep an orphanage running, Entering into this scene is an immortal, Mikhail, from unknown origins, who is strongly drawn to her. Without giving away too much, as I don't do spoilers, lets just say these two have a relationship that does not always run smoothly. She will be controlled by no one and he wants only her. In this world, that has been changed through the act of one woman and her sword, we have shifters, immortals, vampires and humans. A world filled with pain and one in which these two must not only accept what they are, but their feelings for each other, if they are to save it. It is a story filled with emotion and unpredictable twists and turns. As always the authors gives us a powerful story, filled with strong characters in a society so changed it takes courage and exceptional love to win a life worth living.
FATED - This story is filled with so many emotions. We have a young hybrid shifter, Leana. who has always hated what she is and wants only to be human. She also is afraid that humans will learn about her parentage. Although she says she doesn't believe what people are saying about a young boy called the "Hugging Saint", she somehow finds herself going to the temple to see him. When she finally gets her hug, she becomes angry at what he tells her. This leads her to commit a horrific act and finally leads her to accept what she truly is.
TAKEN - This world is filled with amazing, colorful, explicit, feel it as if you were there real characters. The description of the cities, land, the way of life as its changed is very explicit. This dystopian type event has brought forth a new species and changes across the world, and is filled with detail, emotions, fears, and longings. The two main characters, Aria, a woman who intends to never give up no matter what the situation or consequences, and Jai, who can have everything but wants only to be a good man and do the right thing. Brought together, they feel an instant "something", but do all they can to deny it. Can two people, from what amounts to different species, ever trust each other. They both go their own way, still fighting this feeling they have. But fate has more in store for them, and they meet again. Can they and their "people" work together for the good of all, will they finally admit to themselves and each other of their true feelings. I LOVED this story, it's filled with so much emotion that you don't want to put it down till you get to that last page.
FERAL - is told by the young girl Maya, who has always felt as if though she didn't belong. Not to her family, her peers, her life. She confronts her mother and in anger leaves to the world they avoid in search of her "real family"; the world of humans. For Maya belongs to hybrid pack of werewolves. She leaves behind Luke, the one who loves her, in hopes of finding those who will be like her. Did her "mother" really find her or did she steal her away from a loving family. If she finds them will they accept her back, will she want to part of their lives, will she find someone to replace the love she ran away from. She will find more than she expected, a love that could have destroyed her.
This is great series and I recommend it to all who love reading about new amazing world building stories, especially those that lead to a very different dystopian world. Purchase it or read it free through Amazon Unlimited http://amzn.to/2tAZosi

 

Review for Michele De Winton 2 in 1 Burning to Ride

In this 2 for 1, the first being Burned by Lust is a definite 18+ and so steamy you just might singe your fingers as your reading. We have a biker, after losing his brother to violence, preparing to become the boss of his club. A club that allows no permanent bonds with the fairer sex. Through very compromising circumstances, which you'll have to read yourself, he meets one hot, sexy, bad girl. They both have serious issues about long term relationships; will they stick to wham, bang thank you ma'am. Well I don't do spoilers so you'll have to pick up this book (tongs may be required) and find out for yourself. I recommend this to lovers of hot steamy MC romance. I found the second book Burned by Blackmail, to have a more involved storyline, not that the hot scenes aren't hot, just more depth to it. The strong woman in this story is trying to save her establishment from being bought out and when she finds out whose behind it, well let's just say she'll do anything to win.

My review of Ann Gimpels next book in the Soul Dance Series, "Tarnished Prophecy"

In Book 3 of the Soul Dance series, we learn of the gypsy girl Ilona, with powers she keeps hidden from her fellow gypsies. As we've learned from the previous series books, it can be extremely dangerous if her fellow Roms learned of her powers. She meets a wolf shifter Jamal and even though they try and fight it, they are drawn to each other. Trying not to tell you spoilers is hard, but know that the Nazi presence is strong and Ilona is caught and imprisoned with many of her fellow gypsies, Jews and others the Nazi's deem not of the correct race. Working along with the Nazi's are the evil vampires who are determined to destroy her and her family and friends for wiping out an entire group of vamps. We also learn more of Jamal's daughter and the man she loves ; and what happens when the Vamps try and control the group trying to destroy them. If the Roms and Shifters want to survive they must get past their hatred and distrust for each other. There's a surprise concerning Ilona; to discover what it is, as well as how she escapes from prison and what happens with the gypsies and shifters, when they have to work together to destroy their enemies, you'll have to get this great world building book with a touch of historical truth in it. We have mistrust, secrets, danger, lies, powerful magic and that's just within the group trying to work together.  Get it here or at your favorite buy site. http://bit.ly/2ukscBZ

Carmen Falcone's newest romance "The Cowboy's Socialite" releasing 7/24

This is the authors first entry into the Cowboy genre. This story was filled with snarky humor, stubbornness, untold truths everywhere, fear of loving and finally eyes wide open and of course the authors famous sexy, sensual scenes. All in all, I believe this was a wonderful and sweet, but not syrupy sweet, very believable, cowboy versus socialite romance. Read about a beautiful woman with commitment problems and a cowboy who doesn't want to forgive, both unwilling to admit their true feelings. As you can see I don't do spoilers, but I highly recommend this story to all those who love a good romance with a sexy cowboy thrown in and of course a horse or two. I can't wait for the author to get back in the saddle again.  Pre-order it here or at your favorite book site.   http://amzn.to/2sbAz1j

This book is now my favorite love story and I believe it will be for a long time, if not forever.  Grab this wonderful book here or at your favorite buy site.  http://amzn.to/2u9rirQ
