Kinked
(Elder Races #6)
by Thea Harrison

 

Two opponents must confront the cause of their obsessive fury in the latest Novel of the Elder Races…

 

As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she’s ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy’s incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own.

 

To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin’s mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion—culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.

Cover Reveal: Tamed by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #13) by Felicity Heaton ~ Excerpt/Giveaway

 

Tamed by a Tiger

(Eternal Mates #13)
by Felicity Heaton
Expected publication: August 5th 2017

 

 

A snow leopard shifter in the prime of his life, the last thing on August’s mind is tying himself to one female. He welcomes a different one to his bed each night, or at least he had until five months ago when he became alpha. The duties and pressures of running his pride have his libido dead on arrival—until a trip to London to discuss business with the former alpha lands him in the path of a beautiful, bewitching tigress who awakens a passion in him that flares white hot and a need of her that consumes his every moment.

 

Promised at birth to a male she has never met, Maya has left her pride behind to go to the tiger alpha who is to be her mate, but she can’t leave without saying goodbye to her older brother, Talon. A stop in London at Underworld to see him one last time turns out far different, and far more dangerous, than how she had imagined it when she sets eyes on an alluring crimson-haired stranger who stirs new, unbidden feelings in her, desires that rouse her fiercest and most frightening instincts and demand she stake a claim on him—her fated mate.

 

Will Maya be strong enough to place her pride and her family’s safety before the desires of her own heart? And will August unravel his feelings for the black-haired beauty before it’s too late and he loses her forever?

 “Cavanaugh, take over a moment,” Sherry called over her shoulder, towards the other end of the bar to Maya’s left.

 

Her eyes leaped there.

 

Landed on a huge male with short silver hair who stood with his back to Sherry, the lights playing across his broad shoulders changing his white shirt from blue to red as they shifted.

 

He twisted at the waist to look at Sherry.

 

Maya didn’t hear what he said.

 

She didn’t hear the music.

 

Didn’t hear anything but the thumping of her heart.

 

She stared at the male Cavanaugh had been talking to at the end of the bar.

 

A male with flame red tousled hair and piercing silver eyes that captured hers as he lifted them from his beer to her, looking past the bartender.

 

Heat rushed through her, fire that burst to life inside her so fiercely she couldn’t catch her breath, and she stared at him, transfixed, lost in those silver eyes as they turned liquid, glowed around his irises and pulled her deeper still, narrowing the world down to only him.

 

Who was he?

 

In the wake of the fire that blazed through her blood, her instincts flashed to life, sweeping through her in a devastating wave that stripped all control from her.

 

She snapped and snarled at the females near her, baring her short fangs at them as a need seized her and drove her to obey it.

 

A need to fight.

 

She growled at Sherry through gritted teeth, her fangs slicing into her gums as they elongated.

 

Sherry backed off, her blue eyes shooting wide as she distanced herself.

 

No.

 

On a low growl, Maya leaped onto the black bar, and swiped at her, claws cutting through the air. Sherry ducked beneath her blow, narrowly evading it. Maya’s hackles rose, the urge flowing stronger, driving her harder. She needed to fight. She needed to make sure every female in the vicinity left.

 

This was her territory now.

 

She would make that clear.

 

She opened her mouth to roar.

 

Someone’s hand slammed down over it, and she struggled as strong arms hauled her backwards, dragging her off the bar. The male held her harder, wrestled with her and managed to restrain her arms, pinning them to her sides. She bit into his palm and he growled at her, a warning she wanted to heed but couldn’t manage to obey. 

 

She needed to fight.

 

“Calm her the fuck down or you are both out of here, family or fucking not,” a male voice barked and she snarled at the owner of it—the jaguar. “Get this shit under control.”

 

“Come with me,” Sherry said and Maya struggled harder, needed to reach the female and fight her.

 

Needed to make this her territory.

 

Grey grunted and his grip on her tightened, and she flinched as pain arced like lightning through her bones. A show of strength. He was stronger than her, but she wouldn’t let him stop her. He could break her bones if he wanted. She would fight.

 

She kicked at him, battering his shins.

 

He bowed backwards, bringing her legs up and making it impossible for her to reach him. 

 

Maya lashed out at everyone in her way instead.

 

All it did was help her brother by scattering everyone in his way, giving him an open route to take as he followed Sherry.

 

As she drew closer to the male with the fiery red hair, the need to fight grew stronger, drove her out of her mind and terrified her, leaving her feeling trapped inside her own body. She clawed at Grey’s arms, cutting through his coat and scoring his flesh, but all he did was hiss through his teeth. His grip on her remained too strong for her to break.

 

She needed to break it.

 

She needed to fight.

 

The scarlet-haired male’s silver eyes tracked her until she was level with him, and then casually he looked back down at his beer and resumed speaking with Cavanaugh.

 

Cold swept through her in response.

 

All of the fight flowed out of her and she slumped in Grey’s arms, reeling but unsure why.

Stuntman Adam Campbell returns home to Riverbend, Texas, after being seriously injured in a movie stunt gone wrong. He settles in to heal at his family's ranch, where his four brothers, famous trick riders, train horses.

 

Adam is stunned to find Bailey Farrell working there—she was the shy girl who'd helped Adam graduate high school so he could run off to Hollywood. Except the budding Bailey, with whom Adam had a brief but intense affair, has blossomed into a beautiful woman. Now the sparks that had once ignited between them threaten to explode.

 

Adam is beaten-up, broken-down, and has lost his nerve—the stunt that injured him also killed his best friend. The only one he can turn to is Bailey, but will Bailey, who has come back to Riverbend to lick her wounds after a painful divorce, be willing to help him again?

Book 1 of Riding Hard. A 230-page (approx) novel—20 chapters, plus bonus sneak peek at Grant's book and a recipe for Mrs. Ward's Harvest Pie.

Adam was a sweet second chance romance in Jennifer Ashley’s, Riding Hard series.

 

It’s a fast read, with plenty of alphas, horses, and strong women. I enjoyed meeting the Campbell family, each brother is unique. I loved the strong family bonds portrayed and the loyalty they have for one another. I also had fun with the family and their business of being trick riders. Adam was yummy and Bailey was perfect for him. The romance is sweet and you can see they still have chemistry, even after all these years.

 

Adam was an enjoyable feel good romance. I had a delightful time reading.

Release Day Launch: Eyes on You (Blasphemy #2.5)(1001 Dark Nights) by Laura Kaye ~ Excerpt

 

From New York Times Bestselling author Laura Kaye, comes EYES ON YOU, a new novella in her Blasphemy Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

 

The silence that followed was thick with tension, and Liv almost couldn’t decide if she’d hallucinated what’d happened or if this first date was truly just that bad. Jerry wouldn’t make eye contact and, instead, peered down at his cell phone beneath the table. So she took the opportunity to survey the diners sitting at the horseshoe-shaped bar near them in the hopes she’d see someone, anyone, she knew. God, please give me a way to escape Mr. I Don’t Use Menus. But God had clearly forsaken her, because the party of three women having a girls’ night out were strangers. As were the various groupings of men, some of whom wore Orioles gear and watched the pre-game commentary on the captioned television screens above the bar. An elderly man she didn’t know sat alone nearest to their high-boy table nursing a glass of bourbon, and two seats down from him…sat the hottest man Liv had ever seen.

 

And that was her impression just from seeing him in profile.

 

He had dark blond hair and a chiseled jaw, and even sitting, it was clear that he was tall.    

 

Seriously broad shoulders filled out a dark green button-down shirt, and big hands gripped a glass of water. Now God was just being mean. Because someone was going to get to be with that man tonight while she was stuck here with Jerry of the I Don’t Use Menus clan. As she watched, not-Jerry pressed his cell phone to his ear and began talking in tones too low for her to hear.

 

On a sigh, Liv returned her attention to Jerry. Not that it mattered, because his gaze remained fixed on his phone. She drained the rest of her Prosecco and wished someone would bring her the bottle. That wouldn’t be too awkward for a first date, right? Right

 

 

 

About EYES ON YOU (Blasphemy #3):

 

She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch…

When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself. But their playful conversation turns into a scorching one-night stand that reveals the shy beauty gets off on the idea of being seen, even if she’s a little scared of it, too. And Wolf loves to watch.

 

In the wake of discovering her fiancé’s infidelity, florist Olivia Foster never expected to find someone who not only understood her wildest, darkest fantasies, but would bring them to life. As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.

 

But Wolf is a master of getting what he wants—and he’s got his eyes set on her…

From author Thea Harrison comes the latest story in the New York Times bestselling Moonshadow trilogy….

 

Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.

 

When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.

 

One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.

 

Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.

 

But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge…

Spellbinding! Emotional! Magical!

 

I don’t know where to start, but to say WOW. I was sucked in from the first to the last page and couldn’t put this novel down.

 

The Moonshadow series is a spin-off of the Elder Races. This series is primarily based in the UK, the other side of the world, and has brought in the races over their, mainly the Fae into the spotlight.

 

Finally we get Morgan Le Fae story. We learn so much about him. Why he does what he does, who he truly is, and the horrors he has been a part of and seen. If you have read the Elder Races then you know and have seen Morgan pop up every now and then. He’s the bad guy or is he??? I want to tell you so much about Morgan and his plight, but if I do I give so much away. Morgan’s journey is an emotional one in finding love, living life, and enjoying the world again.

 

Sid is a human with no magic at all. She’s strong, courageous, quick minded, and a musician who creates breathtaking music. Her life changes forever when she is kidnapped and turned over to the Winter Palace of the Light Fae.

 

Sid and Morgan are fantastic together. She shouldn’t trust him, but she can’t help it. In the end she trusts and opens up a world with possibilities for them both. Their romance was sweet and endearing.

 

Besides the romance Ms. Harrison whips up some seriously strong feelings and doesn’t pull any punches when she vividly describes her scenes. It’s an intensely emotional read. I was crying, I was loving, and I was hating right along side these characters. One scene at the beginning with Sid, I cried all the way through. It was just so heartbreaking to read.

 

Spellbinder is Captivating, Enchanting, and Entertaining. Their are so many great moments and charming characters. It’s action-packed, fast-paced, and romantic. I can’t wait to see what comes next.

 

Rated: 5 Stars

Riveting. Unforgettable. Astronomical. 

 

I don’t even know where to start in describing how much I LOVED this book and how OBSESSED I am with the series. The Andrews team never disappoint. 

 

Wildfire is book three in the Hidden Legacy series and it’s mind-blowing. I’m hoping this isn’t the end of the series, because there is just SO much more I want to see and explore. 

It’s a non-stop action-packed adventure that will drag you in. I seriously read this book in one day. Once I opened it. I could’t stop. I was hooked. 

 

Rogan, Nevada, and the gang where all amazing. We go deeper into the Houses, learn more about Nevada and her family history, and the mystery on who wants to take down the current structure. We are spared no shortage on the action and developments. The writing flows and the detail into describing things is extraordinary. The romance between Rogan and Nevada takes on a whole new level with a few challenges to over come. These two see each other, truly see each other, and won’t hold the other back. 

 

Last, that ending sentence. OMG!!! I think I figured out who Caesar is, but we don’t know for sure and we are not told. It’s a can you figure it out… I think I did. 

 

Wildfire was monuments. I loved it. Can’t wait to own my own copy and hope we are treated to more in the Hidden Legacy series.

Movie Review: Inferno (2016)

 

 

I’ve not read the books by Dan Brown, but I did see The Da Vinci Code and loved it.

 

I was hoping to get the same intense and engaging feeling as I did with The Da Vinci Code, but unfortunately Inferno lacked in many areas. From what I’ve read on other reviews. Those that read the book will be disappointed in the ending. Even though I didn’t read the book, the ending was too happy, to easy, with everything being wrapped up all nice. 

 

I did find the overpopulation and Dante’s Inferno plot to be interesting. Dan Brown proposes an elegant solution in the form of a “plague” for the overpopulation issue, which was fascinating. Though we don’t get the overpopulation plot resolved or answered. Theirs also a little love story between Langdon and Sinsky which the movie didn’t need. I also didn’t care for the lead Actress who played Sienna. She lacked personality. As for the movie it wasn’t as intense, engaging, and pull you in as The Da Vinci Code was.

 

Inferno was an okay movie to watch, but it just didn’t carry the same weight as The Da Vinci Code did.

 

 

I borrowed this movie from the library.

Survival Instinct (Instinct #3) by Janie Crouch (Tour) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt

 

Chloe had put a week’s salary in the curse jar by the time she got off the phone with her studio a few hours later checking Shane Westman out.

 

Westman was completely trustworthy, competent, and thorough. The studio had run a background check on him as soon as Linear Tactical had said who they were sending. The man had a stellar military record and was well-respected by everyone in the known universe and their mothers.

 

As if Chloe couldn’t tell all of that by the perfect creases in his khakis. 

 

She wasn’t worried about whether he could get the job done. Any idiot could see that he’d accomplish everything he put his mind to.

 

She was worried about her ability to get anything done while he was around. 

 

She’d gotten more and more upset as the studio had asked her very logical questions: had Shane done something to offend her? Or make her think he was incompetent? To worry her or someone else?

 

It didn’t take long for her to realize that trying to explain to the logical studio executives that Shane Westman’s presence might hamper her creative force made her just sound like a nutcase.

 

And she was a nutcase. But she knew having that man around was going to change everything about everything. Chloe didn’t like change. She liked the chaos she’d built around her because it was hers, and she controlled it. Having Westman around threatened that. 

 

It wasn’t that she didn’t want everyone safe—she did; of course she did—but couldn’t they find someone a little less…commanding? Forceful? Sexy? Damn it.

Blurb


The voices in her head have decided to kill her. 

 

Most people joke about hearing voices in their heads. For Chloe Jeffries, they’re real. And as the creative force behind one of the most popular shows on television, she has used the constant flood of voices in her mind to her advantage: fuel for entertainment.

 

But now one of the voices has decided it wants Chloe all for itself.

 

Ex-Special Forces soldier Shane Westman just wants to make it back to Wyoming to begin to heal from the horrors of war. The last thing he needs, even as a favor for a good friend, is to take on bodyguard duty of a flighty television writer. But once he does, he realizes there are threats at play he doesn’t understand.

Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall

Immortal Guardians Book #7

Releasing September 19th, 2017

 

 

Return to the “utterly addictive” (RT Book Reviews) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians.

 

Dana Pembroke has been able to glimpse the future of those she touches for as long as she can remember.  But she never saw Aidan coming.  When the tall, dark Celt with the charming grin yet world-weary eyes walks through her door, the future she sees for him is one full of violence, danger, deception… and passion.  Because amidst the terrifying battles that unfold in her visions, she also sees herself in Aidan’s arms and in his bed.  Dana knows she should keep her distance, but the tender moments and laughter they share entice her even as she finds herself thrust into a world of vampires, immortals, and other preternatural beings.

 

Immortal Guardian Aidan O’Byrne has been hunting and slaying psychotic vampires for nearly three thousand years, so visions of bloody battles don’t trouble him.  The battles Dana foresees, however, show Aidan’s brethren turning against him, so he can’t help but feel alarmed.  While he spends as much time as he can with Dana, struggling to decipher her dire predictions, Aidan finds himself utterly smitten. Hope rises that he has finally found a woman who can banish the darkness and loneliness that plague him. But when vampires begin targeting Dana and a powerful enemy spawns chaos, will fate grant them time to find happiness together?

Date Published: July 19, 2017
 
 

Dylan Apel is at it again…

 

When the Magical Abilities contest is announced, Dylan couldn’t give a flip about entering. But when she discovers the prize is the coveted Never Forget, a spell that makes you immune to mind erasing, she’s all in.

 

That is, until the potion is stolen. Now, she’s on lock down in Castle Witch with a thief on the loose. But lucky for her, the witching elite has also arrived, and Dylan’s convinced one of them is the Master, an elusive criminal who she believes committed a heinous murder twenty years ago. All Dylan has to do is slip a magical ring on the right person’s finger and she’s got her killer.

 

But when the ring is stolen, Dylan’s not sure who to trust. Things get worse when her boyfriend is arrested for a theft he didn’t commit, a close friend can’t remember important details, and Dylan herself is accused of cheating in the contest. Before things get any worse Dylan must find a thief and a murderer—before she becomes the next victim of the Master.

BLESS YOUR WITCH series:

 

 
 

 An arm snaked around my waist. My breath caught in my throat.

 

“It’s been too long since I’ve smelled your hair,” came the gruff voice over my shoulder.

 

I narrowed my eyes. “I didn’t know you had a hair fetish. That’s totally weird.”

 

Hot breath parted my locks like fingers. “You’ve got a knack for ruining romantic moments. Did anyone ever tell you that?”

 

I giggled. “Anyone ever tell you that telling a girl it’s been too long since you smelled her hair is weird?”

 

Roman spun me around. I pitched forward only to be caught by muscular arms as soon as made of iron as they were of flesh and blood.

 

“Hold on there. Don’t fall over.”

 

I straightened. Sea-green eyes met my poo-brown ones. Yes, they were poo brown.

 

Blond hair grazed the top of his shoulders. I wove my fingers through the ends, pretending to be getting out a bit of lint or something, but really I just wanted to touch his hair.

 

He wrapped me in a quick hug. “You do smell good.”

 

“I try.”

 

We parted and he smiled at me. A goopy look filled his gaze. I bit down on the lopsided grin I knew was stitched on my own face.

 

“So,” I said. “Fancy meeting you here.”

 

Roman pocketed his hands. “You come to weddings often?”

 

“All the time.”

 

“I bet you go to pick up men.”

 

I rocked back on one heel. “Am I that obvious?”

 

Roman leaned on one hip, studying me. He rubbed his chin. “You’re not that obvious. It’s more of a sense I get from you.”

 

I quirked a brow. “Oh?”

 

“You seem like the type who goes to weddings, picks one guy, dances with him all night. It’s just long enough for that guy to fall a little bit in love with you. Then you dump him.”

 

My jaw fell. “That’s horrible. Why would someone do that?”

 

Roman shook his head. “Ever heard of a black widow?”

 

I rolled my eyes. “You’re terrible. I’m not a black widow. If anything, you’re a dark assassin.”

 

It was time for Roman to do some major eye rolling. Which he did. Which didn’t surprise me. “Right. Listen, how about you agree that I’m right and we do some dancing?”

 

I folded my arms over my chest. “Is that the proper way to ask a lady to dance?”

 

In a flourish of testosterone, Roman dropped to one knee and extended his hand to me. “My lady, would you care to dance with this poor soul?”

 

I nearly busted my gut laughing. Tears blurred my vision as I said, “Yes.”

 

Roman guided me out past the chairs. The quartet strings thrummed as he twirled me into the space. Others quickly joined and the post wedding fun kicked into high gear.

 

I have to tell you, those of us who weren’t centaurs had to make a lot of room for them.

 

Laughter buzzed in the air as the romance of the wedding took hold of us. Roman and I fell into a smooth rhythm, my head on his shoulder, his arms wrapped around me protectively. There was no place else I would rather have been.

 

A crack of light splintered into the center of the dance floor. People screamed. Others leaped back. Roman pushed me behind him, shielding me with his body.

 

My heart hammered against my ribs. Heat rose in my chest, rippling up my neck. I peered over Roman’s shoulder.

 

A man stood in the center. He wore an ebony cape with lapels starched up to his eyebrows. His amber hair was slicked back and he had a deep widow’s peak that plunged down his forehead.

 

He clapped his hands. “Greetings, everyone!”

 

The air stilled. The looks of shock on people’s faces quickly changed to confusion.

 

The man’s gaze washed over the crowd. He studied the gathering as if analyzing us in bits and pieces. He clapped his hands again. “I’ve come with good tidings to the happy couple.”

 

From his seat at the wedding table, Pearbottom gave a stiff nod. Eliza clutched his hand, her knuckles stretched to white.

 

I was surprised that neither Pearbottom or Roman had moved on this guy. The small bit of analytical brain I had quickly realized they didn’t consider him to be a threat. That one notion made me relax a tiny bit, the muscles in my neck and shoulders unknotting.

 

The man flashed a brilliant smile. “This year’s Magical Abilities contest is open for submissions. The grand prize is a vial of Never Forget.” His eyes swept across us once more, landing on me. His piercing gaze made my stomach knot. Maybe it was the cape, but I felt kinda creeped out by him. 

 

The man raised his hands. “You may enter the contest,” he brought his watch to eye level and said, “starting now!”

 

A puff of gray smoke billowed up around him. The smoke took on lines, becoming sharper at the edges, more delineated until small circles broke off from the edges. These orbs of gas transformed into doves. Their wings fluttered as they rose high into the sky before disappearing.

 

A shimmering picture remained where the caped wizard had been standing. A halved roman column sat squat on the ground. Resting on it was a small, golden trophy. A halo shot out around it. After a few seconds the picture faded away, revealing a red banner with yellow script.

 

REGISTER NOW FOR THE MAGICAL ABILITIES CONTEST!

 

ALL ENTRANTS MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 24 HOURS

 

From all around me, the wedding crowd released a collective breath.

 

Roman turned. “You okay?”

 

I dragged my gaze from the banner. Energy still bubbled in my stomach from where the wizard had stared right through me.

 

“Hmm?” I said. I shook my head. “Yeah. I’m fine. Wow. That was totally weird. What was that all about?”

 

“I’ll tell you what it was about, toots.”

 

I glanced over and saw my paternal grandmother, Milly Jones, caning up to us. She’d dressed up for the occasion. Oh, she still wore black orthopedic shoes, beige support hose, a dark skirt and a shapeless cardigan. But this sweater had sequins!

 

“Milly, you’ve out done yourself,” I said.

 

A loud snort jutted from her gnarled hook nose. “I spare no expense when it comes to weddings. What can I say? I love seeing people get married. The only thing better than that is playing with babies,” she said flatly.

 

I really didn’t know if she was being serious or not. Milly loving babies? That was kind of like an alligator liking small deer.

 

Not that Milly was going to eat said children. She didn’t do that. Of course not. But she just didn’t strike me as the type to love playing with sweet, cooing babies.

 

I’d been known to be wrong before, though. It could happen again.

 

Milly eyed Roman like a pirate eyed treasure—with a glint. The only thing she was missing would have been a metal hand and maybe a gold tooth.

 

“Roman, it’s good to see you.”

 

“Good to see you, Milly.”

 

She studied the magical banner. People were milling about, taking their places once again on the dance floor.

 

“So I missed the announcement,” she said.

 

I pulled a tissue from my clutch purse and dabbed a splotch of sweat from my neck. “Where were you?”

 

“Bathroom.” She drifted toward the banner. “So it’s time again, huh? Time for the contest.”

 

I shrugged. “Looks like.”

 

Her neck snapped back to me. “You know you need to enter.”

 

I dropped the tissue. I shot her a panicked gaze. “Me? Why me? Why do I need to enter?”

 

She thumbed her nose. “All of you do. You and your sisters.”

 

“Why do we have to enter?”

 

Milly’s lips coiled into a serpentine smile. “So that you can win the Never Forget spell.”

 

I frowned. “Why would I need that?”

 

Her eyes dragged across the pavilion until they landed in my grandmother Hazel’s direction. “You need the spell,” she said slowly, “so that you can start remembering.”

 

Confusion fogged my brain. “Remembering what?”

 

Milly glanced back at me, her eyes stony cold as she said, “Everything your other grandmother makes you forget.”

The Fire 7, I'm going to play with, but might give to my mom. She's not computer savvy and her iPad gives her trouble. She doesn't do much except Facebook, check emails, and read now and then.

ARC Review Copy

 

Dell has persuaded the Bloodless army to fight alongside her pack in Butler, but she still has to get there. Halfway home, the rift detonates, blasting out a magic surge that sweeps across the globe, frying electronics and spells alike. Leaving her with no way to get home except on her own two--or four--feet.

 

Dangerous times demand equally lethal alliances, and she has to make a risky deal if she wants to reach the front lines before it's too late. The bargain grants an ancient fae power over her, a hold she vowed no man would ever have on her again, but freedom requires sacrifice.

 

As the threshold between Earth and Faerie erodes, humans and supernaturals alike are in danger of being erased as the fae seek to claim this world as their own. This is the moment when new legends arise and old gods fall, when fates unspool and futures unravel, when battles are won and lives are lost.

The war isn't just coming. It's here.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

 

 

Over the Moon concludes the arc series for the Gemini and Lorimar Pack. We may return to the Black Dog world, but for now Dell’s story and many others are ending.

 

I’d say this series is best read after at least starting the Gemini series with book one, if not beginning with the Black Dog series. Theirry who is our heroine in the Black Dog series plays a major role in the Lorimar Pack books and world.

 

It’s been a thrilling adventure from start to finish. I feel in love with Ms. Edwards writing and world when I read Dog with a Bone book one in the Black Dog series. I’ve come to relish and savor the stories, characters, and world.

 

This one brings back many of the old characters: Thierry and Shaw, Cam and Graeson, and many more. Fans will not be disappointed in the return of favorite characters nor the conclusion that is given with each getting an epilogue at the end.

 

As for Dell her adventures have taught her to rely on others, think things through, and be more careful. She’s grown into a better Beta for her pack and a stronger more confident women.

 

Earth and Faerie are at war. It’s an eye opener for the humans and a turning point for the supernaturals. Dell and Isaac are hard pressed to stay in one piece and come out alive on the other side. Deals are being made and allies are coming to help. It’s a bad place, but what can you do? Except deal with the hard circumstances and hope everything will turn out ok at the end.

 

Over the Moon ending on a wonderful note. I’m hoping we get a few more spin-offs for some of the characters featured in the series. Isaac’s twin brother Theo’s epilogue was an eye opener and has me wanting to know his story.

 

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy. I highly recommend picking up the Black Dog, Gemini, and Lorimar Pack series.

Arriving in a new town with an undercover identity to protect and the mission to find a pureblood vampire to save her brother’s life, the last thing Annabel needs is to fall in love with the sexy, persistent werewolf who thinks she’s a helpless human in need of a knight in shining armor. 

 

Shane is a dominant werewolf who also happens to be the local sheriff. He has almost lost hope of finding his better half. So when his beautiful soul-mate shows up and rogue vampires try to kill her, he does what any smart wolf would do: he saves her and takes her home, hoping to convince her that they belong together.

 

When sparks fly between them, Annabel has to decide if she tells him who she really is or runs the other way to protect her secrets.

For protection, she can only rely on her best friend’s family. When she arrives at Affinity, she is brought closer to her goal. But encountering the man of her dreams is only half the battle. Convincing him that she is his reincarnated love may prove to be next to impossible.

Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She's stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn't her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn't believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they're searching for away from them, she'll consider it payback.

 

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he's civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn't mean he gets to keep her...

 

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won't give up his treasure.

Drakon’s Plunder is book three in the Blood of the Drakon series by N.J. Walters.

 

I’ve been enjoy this series. I like the drakons, half man, half dragon, who are solitary except for the occasional interactions they have between the four brothers. Once they meet their mate; their love is unrestrained, their passion is explosive, and they are unmatched in their protectiveness.

 

Ezra I’ve wanted to meet him since the moment he was introduced. He’s a water darken and needs the sea. The man is a recluse, owns his on island, and a salvage company on the main land.

 

Sam’s an archaeologist and she has a specially gift for finding artifacts seeped in magic or myth. She took a job with the Knights, so she could get revenge for them killing her friend.

 

Danger is every present throughout the story. We also get a little deeper into the workings of the Knights and their goals. Sam & Ezra’s relationship is fast. Their chemistry is fierce and fiery from the moment they meet. I liked these two together, but I was a little sad with how quickly their relationship went. I wanted a little more, push and pull, not a total in all at once. The other area of disappointment for me was in them sleeping together after only knowing each other for 6 hrs. With this being an insta-love story, you know that everything is going to be quick.

 

Drakon’s Plunder was a satisfactory read. It didn’t blow my mind, but I still enjoyed it. I’m curious about the fourth brother Nic and I’m looking forward to his story. This story can be read as a stand-a-lone, but the books are best read in order.

“You have no idea who is looking for me.” She shoved the blanket aside and sat up. It was time to get dressed, if she still had any clothes, and get out of here. “These people are dangerous and will stop at nothing to find me. If they don’t find a body at the wreck—” She broke off before she said too much.

 

“So you were in a wreck. I wondered why you were alone in the dinghy. And who is after you?” He stood, looming like a large, avenging angel over her. “You can trust me to protect you.”

 

“You might be willing to risk yourself, but I’m not. I need to leave. Where are my clothes?”

 

As though she hadn’t spoken, Ezra continued. “You must be thirsty. Hungry, too. I’m starving. How about I make some bacon and eggs? Maybe some pancakes and toast.” He left her standing there and padded barefoot into the kitchen. Why did she find it so sexy that he was barefoot?

 

She was obviously not thinking straight, otherwise she wouldn’t notice the way his long hair brushed his shoulders or the way the soft denim cupped his behind as he walked away. Her toes curled against the rug.

 

She snatched up the throw blanket, wrapped it around her, and hurried after him. “Didn’t you hear anything I just told you? It’s not safe for you if I’m here. The people looking for me will kill you.”

 

Ezra pulled a carton of eggs, butter, and a package of bacon out of the refrigerator and set them on the counter. He added a box of pancake mix and a bowl to his collection before getting several large skillets out of the cupboard.

 

“Did you hear me?” she demanded. “They’ll kill you.”

 

Ezra propped his hands on his hips and faced her. “Not if I kill them first.”
