Review for Snow Blood Season 3 by Carol McKibben

I'm loving this series more with each book I read. You know that dogs love their masters, Snow Blood not only loves his master but the entire Borgio family and his pack as well. He will do everything he can to save them. In this book he is taken by a great enemy and must endure much to keep his family safe. The enemy wants him for his powers, with a bonding she will be able to overpower not only his family, but all vampires and more. I don't do spoilers so this is all your going to get. My love for her writing increases with each book she writes and that grows even more when she shows her own love for our four legged friends. Book 3 on it's own is amazing, but you would enjoy so much more by starting at the beginning "Snow Blood Season 1".  Get Book 3 or the rest of the series here or at your favorite book site:     https://amzn.to/2L26GgL

Along with their smell is a scent of evil magic - what the heck is going on? If you love reading excitement, mysteries, the paranormal and some hot romance, this book is definitely for you.

My review of Tracy Cooper Posey's Book 6, "Veil of Honor" in the Scandalous Scions Series

Veil of Honor is another home run for author Tracy Cooper-Posey; this is Book 6 in her Scandalous Scions Series. Again we are discovering secrets from those in the 3 families this series involves. It was easy to be bring dishonor not only to oneself but through you, your family as well, during this period of history. We have a member of the family who has kept secret a terrible moment of weakness that could bring her and her family down with shame and scandal. We also have a young man who learns of this occurrence and makes her, as we say now, an honest woman. Belonging to these families they have known each other long, but it's this shame that shows them the true feelings they have for each other. But it isn't as easy as that, for they will travel the ups and downs of their actions both from within and out of the family and they will suffer for their those actions. But amongst their time together they learn to love but still hesitate to fully trust. The story is very emotional and, for me anyway, once I began reading I didn't put it down till it was finished. If you haven't started this series, start right now and you will fall in love with this very unconventional family during a time when rules, etiquette and unwritten rules had to be followed or the lack of them would bring scandal and ruin to an entire family. Each book can be read on it's own, but to see the whole picture it's better to read the series. Have a go at it and be enthralled with the time and the stories.

Carol McKibben's first book in her new series, Moon Blood (The First Blood Son Book 1)

A FIVE STAR RATING - A vampire, a vampire wolf, space technology and a sexy corporate spy. What ? The authors new series concerns Kane, the original vampires first blood son. Along with him we have Snow Blood and Nova's first pups, in particular a female pup that bonded with Kane. She is so taken with him that whenever he visits she follows him everywhere she can. During one of his visits she is caught in a bear trap and is so severely injured she cannot be saved. With the permission of his family and the desire of the pup, upon her death Kane turns her. Right about now your probably saying "oh no, she's writing spoilers". Nope, that's it, except to say the story is filled with loyalty and love, plenty of action, snarky humor and a beautiful, sexy woman. Yeap another great story from the author whose love for animals gives her readers a very different and fascinating perspective on the vampire genre. Now where the heck is book 2?

Tracy Cooper Posey's brand new series Once and Future Hearts, Book 1 Born of No Man

A great start to a new Series concerning the time of the great Merlin. This story begins with the conflicts before his birth. The authors research brings us facts and fiction so well melded together that it leaves you saying, "Wow, I didn't know that" then brings you back to "wait, did that really happen or is it just part of this story." The main characters have background stories both good (for those times)and bad; filled with stoic bravery and some with deep pain and anger. We have hero's and heroines who will have to go through both mental and physical anguish, as well as unexpected love. The story ends at the start of the amazing and supposedly magical life of Merlin. We've seen and read many versions of this mans life, but I have a feeling this one will be the most enthralling one of all.  Buy here https://tracycooperposey.com/born-of-no-man/ , directly from the author, here or at your favorite book site:  https://amzn.to/2HMUejY

 

   

My review of Laxmi Hariharans latest book "Obsession" from her Dragon Protectors Series

As the author gives birth to each new book, they just keep getting better. It's written with more passion and excitement, and a terrific storyline. I thought it was a wonderful love story, within a story of danger and unknowns. This story involves a cat shifter and a dragon, whoaaa. His lion knows that the dragon shifter is their mate and he agrees and is desperate to make her his. But she's not just any dragon shifter, she's the dragons alpha and is use to being on her own and in control of all. And as they all know a dragon cannot mate with other shifters, it would be their death. So even though she desires him she's determined not to be his death. But they must work together to find his sister whose been kidnapped by their new enemy. They must find him and the others that want to take them over and in doing so destroy them all. See what dangers they must overcome during their mission and how they both must accept their fate, be it together or apart.  Get I here or at your favorite book site:  https://amzn.to/2HdshNY

My review for Ann Gimpel's latest in her Dystopian Punk Series, "Redeemed"

What an ending to a fantastic series. Only bad thing is I DON'T want it to end. A lot of action, surprises, suspense from beginning to end. The world building in this series is both fantastic and scary. In this book we also have a first, at least for me, that involves the emotional breaking of a long time shifter bond. But we also have the joy of love and being newly bonded within a "family", a happiness the shifter has never had, or thought she would ever have, in her very long lifetime. If you've read any of this series, you know we have oodles of magic both good and evil in all shapes and sizes. The author brings to life shifters of all types, vampires, mystical creatures, mythical Gods, and of course a human or two. She does this blending of characters in amazing fashion throughout this series, but especially in Redeemed. I will miss the adventures of this amazing Dystopian Urban Fantasy.   Get it here or at your favorite book site: https://amzn.to/2F1D5Nj 

 

   

Read my review for Carmen Falcone's latest book, "Good GIrl Gone Bad" first in her Dirty Debts series

This book is from the authors new series, Dirty Debts, and is sooo good that once I started I didn't put it down till the last period. The story has great characters, both are serious, funny, sexy and filled with guilt. The heroine is trying to keep her families business afloat while keeping problems from her mother. The hero has tragic secrets from his past and has grown into a man who wants no emotional ties; so dedicated to this that he has no romantic or business dealings without a signed contract. He needs her property for his new venture, and she's not willing to part with a business her mother built up from scratch. He offers a solution that is hard to pass up, but she must sign a contract and any break of that contract will mean losing her business. She's a preachers daughter and has no intention of hurting her mother, but can she do what the contract entails? I do my best not to give spoilers so I've tried here to give the overall view of the story. But there is SO MUCH MORE in between the lines. This is one hot read and is for OVER 18 ONLY READERS; but for us lucky ones over the age, the book is filled with snarky humor, emotional sensual feelings so volatile that it hits the both of them right from the start. So if you like sexy reads filled with emotions and humor, don't pass this one up. Get it here or at your favorite book site: Amazon  https://tinyurl.com/yco5qggx

 

Check out Jodi Linton's newest book, "Tangled Up"

The heroine never wanted to go back to her small TX home town, at least not without having accomplished her dream of being a fashion designer. The hero went from the rodeo to running a dairy ranch. With such different career paths how did the two meet? Well I will tell you it started with her getting into a house that was now owned by a stranger and that stranger meeting her as he comes out of the bathroom wet from a shower with a towel wrapped around his hips. It only gets funnier and sexier from there. She's looking for his half-brother and he just wants her out of his house. You don't always get want you want. Read this funny, but romantic and sexy story for yourself. Life can change so quickly, especially when your not looking for it.

My review for Ann Gimpel's Coven Enforcer Book 1, "Blood and Magic"

This was my first audio book, and I was dead set on not liking any audio book. I'm very glad to say that this book showed me not to say never. The reader was excellent; I loved her voices for each character and the way she was able to give us danger, surprises, and love through her wonderful talent. Great world building in this series of witches and their protectors. The protectors belong to an elite group called Coven Enforcers and their job is to protect good witches wherever they may be from the evil that is constantly trying to overtake the good in the world. Evil that needs the power of the witches so want to turn them to their side or destroy if then can't. They also have magical powers themselves. In this story we have a man who watched his family die and was raised by a man who taught him of the magic he has in himself. During his latest job he meets a witch with whom he falls in love. A witch whose current job seems easy enough but turns out to be jam packed with surprises and full on evil. We have twist and turns that include those in her charge. Between the both of them will they be able to get to the truth? When evil strikes at it's worst, will the hero be able to do his job and destroy the woman he's come to love. You may think I've given you spoilers, but believe me I haven't; there is so much going on in this story that you'll just have to get it to learn how enforcers do their job and how evil does theirs. In the middle of them are the witches for whom the enforcers will give their lives to save. A story full of excitement, surprises and new found love. Get this book here or at your favorite book site: https://amzn.to/2GIc7zX

Review of Rebakah Ganiere's story in the box set "Corsets and Cogs" includes over 20 authors

So far I've read Rebekah Ganiere's The Lady Fugitive and I have to tell you WOW, just WOW, the story grabbed me in the first chapter. The world building in this story is exciting and so different from any steampunk story I've read. The characters are really strong and I swore the heroine was in trouble when we first meet the "man", but it turns out they have a background story that is both terrible and sad. We learn what has occurred, and even though she once loved him, why she wants him out of her life. He's no intentions of leaving her alone and tries to force himself back into her life. But she's a wily one and not only gets away from him but escapes with a stolen item. She desperately needs the object, but fear from those that don't understand can mean her death. It may not sound like it, but this story turns out to be a glorious love story; if we only she'd forgive herself. You may think I've given you spoilers, but I've barely skimmed the surface of this fascinating book. If I'm not mistaken this is the first steampunk book by this author and whether it is or not, she hit this one out of the ball park. I truly hope this will be a series and that another book is being put to paper (or computer) as you read this. Hurry and grab it for $.99, before it's gone,  here or at your favorite book site:   https://amzn.to/2q6vEQa

 

     

Laxmi Hariharan newest Series, Dragon Protectors Book 1, "Inception"

Let me tell you, I loved this story; it was just  magnificent. I think it's the best of the series. I absolutely loved the main characters and how the author brought forth all of their feelings. Just TERRIFIC and BEAUTIFULLY written. I want to keep gushing, but I think you get the picture. The hero is devastated after a terrible family loss, he doesn't know how he can continue until he meets "the one". Although she feels the strong attraction, she refuses to accept him as she feels their differences will bring him harm. He won't give up trying, as they work together to stop a new enemy. I try not to do spoilers, but I tell you there is so much more happening between the lines I've written here. Do not pass up this book, I'm telling you your going to love it from beginning to end.  Get it her or at your favorite book site:    https://amzn.to/2GrD4rE
