Enslaved By The Moon by Morgan Fox snippet and pre-order link:


I am SUPER DUPER excited about the 6th book in the Moonlight Shifter Series by Morgan Fox! Morgan Fox is an incredibly talented author when it comes to paranormal erotic romance. I  absolutely ADORED the first five and can not wait for Enslaved by The Moon. The release date is Wednesday, December 25th. What a FANTASTIC Christmas gift for yourself or someone else that you know that LOVES erotic paranormal romance. Check out below for a snippet and buy links for Enslaved. Enjoy the preview folks..I sure did.

Here is a little snippet for Enslaved By The Moon, Moonlight Shifter 6, coming December 25th:

Her heart fluttered in her chest as she roared to the moon above. The blackness set aglow by the twinkling stars, full moon and flickering of lightning in the distant sky. A thick wall of clouds moved in, the scent of rain in the air. The wind blew, but suddenly changed direction, swirling a musky fragrance into her nostrils that had the hair rising all over her long, curvy spine. Her tail whipped from side to side as she felt the tension of the night air thicken. The aroma was unmistakably familiar.

In panther form, Bianca ran. Her legs pumped as she darted and juked around trees, boulders, brush, anything and everything that lay in her path. She prayed her feet would keep moving and allow her a chance to reach her cabin. She wasn’t ready for this. She thought she had more time.

A wall of strength crushed into her, knocking her over and sending her stiff body slamming against a hundred-year-old white oak tree. The air whooshed from her lungs, her body gasping for breath.

Stunned, she shook her head, clearing the sharp reminder of pain from her eyes. 

She sniffed the air, seeking out the object that had forced her body to fly out of control. Her panther eyes scanned her surroundings, but found nothing. Then she felt the power of the hybrid, his breath on her neck, clinging to the low limbs of the tree above her.

Bianca growled, bolting away from the branches. In seconds, Ryder pounced on her. They fought with claws and teeth tearing at one another. Ryder’s sharp fangs sank into the flesh of her hind leg and she cried out with a wild yelp. Instantly, he released her and with his massive paw, swiped her legs out from under her, forcing her body into a roll. Wedged between objects, she thrashed around to flip over, trapped on her back. 

Just as Ryder jumped on top of her, the sky above them cracked with a thunderous boom. Rain from the heavens poured down on them, soaking the earth and pelting them with heavy raindrops.

He’s going to kill me like some savage beast. 

Bianca had wondered, night after night, how Ryder would end her life. She wasn’t strong enough to beat him in a fight and it would only be moments before the job was finished. But she didn’t want to be a panther when she received that final blow. She wanted to be the woman she’d been when the mating attraction had begun to call to her. When instinct and her heart had told her that Ryder was the one she was destined to be with. If she couldn’t love him as a mate should be allowed, it was only poetic that he should be the one who destroyed her, body and spirit. 

With a deep inhalation of breath, Bianca shifted into human form. Ryder’s golden panther eyes pierced into hers, his teeth nipping close to her face. He was growling as if to yell at her for changing forms. Then he backed away and shifted before her eyes.

The blackness of his panther, surrendered into a tan-skinned man with eyes so deadly, she couldn’t hold their penetrating glare. Her body shivered, as she lowered her eyes to drink in the size of his defined broad chest, chiseled abdominals, and the V-cut sinew located below his belly button and above his cock. Her breath hitched as she beheld his swelling shaft, jumping as if to command her attention stay focused on his perfectly erect penis.

She swallowed hard, studying the tension in the muscles of his body. His long legs stood shoulder width apart, his bare body damp with rain. She hadn’t given much thought to the fact that she lay naked on her back in the mud, resting on her elbows with her legs slightly spread. If she were any other woman, surely Ryder would welcome the sight. His erection was just a reaction to his transformation into human form. Perhaps it was even the thrill of his potential kill.

“Why did you shift back?” Ryder shouted, the rain falling harder. “Damn it, Bianca. I don’t want to look at you like this.” He glanced away from her, his eyes searching for something in the near darkness. 

The air fled from her lungs, her body shuddering, but not from cold. “If you are to kill me, you will do so with me as bare to you as my soul is.”

His piercing gaze snapped back in her direction. She swallowed hard, hating the disgust firing in his eyes. She wished more than anything to have seen love or desire looking back at her, but she didn’t. Deep in her heart she had hoped that no matter what, Ryder would be able to see her for the person she truly was and not the monster he assumed her to be.

I will die just as I lived. Alone.

Her fingers dug into the saturated ground beneath her. She needed something to anchor to. Her body shook terribly. “I’ve spoken only the truth to you, Ryder, and I have no secrets. I will go to my grave knowing that I never betrayed you or our people.” She moved from her back and repositioned herself onto her knees. “But for the pain I have caused you, it will be a death I deserve.” Her eyes welled with tears. “I pray it brings you and your friend’s peace.” She placed her arms behind her back, clasping her hands together, and bowed her head, offering herself to him in sacrifice.

Undercover Dom by TL Reeve and Indigo Sin



I was SO VERY excited to read this book! So far, I have LOVED anything by T.L. Reeve and Indigo Sin. These incredible authors know how to write a HOT book and make you pant the whole time reading it!
 I was giving a free copy of this book for my HONEST Review.

I am TOTALLY in full LUST with Dallas! I loved his strong character and the fact that he was both playful and incredibly alpha as a Dom. Taryn was just a treat as a Submissive. I really liked her smart mouth and her talent for getting herself into trouble. 

BLURB:
 Murder and mystery shroud Crimson Heat, a secretive BDSM club on the outskirts of Chicago. Given the opportunity to go undercover as a Dom to flush out a killer, officer Dallas Whitten jumps at the chance, not that being a Dom is anything new to him.

Crimson Heat public relations advisor, Taryn Lenox, spends her time coordinating events to bring Dominants and submissives together, while secretly pining for a relationship of her own.

When fate brings them together, a spark beyond anything they ever imagined is ignited, but Dallas' secret and a sinister presence threatens to destroy any chance they may have. Will love conquer all? Or will evil win out in the end? 

MY REVIEW:
 
  I enjoyed this story from page one. I knew Undercover Dom was going to be spectacular as soon as I read the blurb and I was in no way disappointed. I give this a Four and a Half Stars out of Five. This was a well written book with lots of stunningly HOT sex and even a bit of fun and playfulness I wasn't expecting. I think the characters were both fun and sexy together. The sex was explosive and I found myself squirming in my favorite reading chair with each encounter between Taryn and Dallas. You can't get much hotter then this! Both T.L. Reeve and Indigo Sin are wonderful authors and know how to work together to create a one-of-a-kind story with so much passion and action that will leave a fan of erotic romance blown away..possibly in more ways then one! I hope for many more books in the Crimson Heat Series and am wondering which delicious Dom will be next to get his book. Mmmmm, the possibilities are endless. Indigo Sin and T.L.Reeve, you guys ROCK!

Righteous Kill by Kerrigan Byrne Review:


WOOHOOO!! Today, I am reviewing a VERY good book by Kerrigan Byrne called, Righteous Kill. The title may sound like a mystery but its a romance! I couldn't freaking believe how absolutely good this book was and I hope you take my review to heart, and try this book out and hopefully, you all will love it as much as I did.
 
Note: I received a ARC copy of this book for an HONEST review.
 
 
BLURB:
 
"'Tis one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall."~William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure.

He's no stranger to sin...

A prolific serial killer is crucifying and 'baptizing' the working girls of Portland, and FBI Special Agent Luca Ramirez is locked in a desperate race to prevent the next casualty. The game changes when the latest victim is pulled out of the Willamette River alive, and Luca knows this witness may be his key to breaking the case. When the fanatical killer threatens her life a second time, Luca is assigned to protect the most unique and captivating woman he's ever met by going undercover as her lover. He finds himself locked in a relentless game of cat and mouse with an elusive and violent psychopath, while battling his temptation for the alluring woman he's charged to protect with his life. As the fatalities continue to mount, so does the intensity of his desire for a woman who should be forbidden, but is determined to dial up the heat.

International bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne laces dangerous, edgy content with palette-cleansing humor in this sexy, character-driven series debut that will leave you wondering... Is there such a thing as A Righteous Kill?
MY REVIEW:
When I was asked to read this book I was worried that it had more mystery and murder then actual romance. I can honestly say that I have never been more happy to be SO wrong. Even though there was quite a bit of mystery there was just as much romance between the victim, Hero and the sexy FBI agent Luca. Righteous Kill had some surprising humor too. Hero was a such a unique, yet fitting name for such a strong and brave character. Even though she went through something traumatic, it did NOT stop her from trying to live her life with both humor and bravery. When Kerrigan threw Luca in the mix and made him Hero's lover, sparks flew, passion soared, and love blossomed. This was the first book that had me looking out my window wondering if there was a psychopath out my door wanting to torture and kill me and being VERY glad I don't live in the city. I was NOT expecting such a strong plot or such great humor and roaring passion. I can definitely say I will be anticipating the next book in this new series by Kerrigan Byrne. After reading this story, I knew I had to give this a rating it deserved. I gave this a FOUR AND A HALF OUT OF FIVE STARS!! That's right, this book was wonderful and well written. A true masterpiece!

My Demon Determined by Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jakz Review

 
 
Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the second book in the My Demon Trilogy by Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jakz. I received an ARC copy of this book for my HONEST and TRUE REVIEW!
 
 

BLURB:
 
“Into the bowels of hell I would follow you.”
“Good because that's exactly where we’re going.”
Never in her wildest nightmares did Seraphina see herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have seen it coming. Sera’s kin would never let her go and that was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm where the vilest of depravity thrives only adds to Cole’s problems. Now he must keep Sera safe from not only her kind, but his debauched brethren as well. Even Cole’s demon-half has become more volatile, the constant subjection to evil taking its toll. His world is no place for an angel. He needs to find a solution so he can get her the hell out of there.
And he needs to find it fast.
When the opportunity arises to finally solve their dilemma, he jumps at it with talon-claws swinging. But it’s a dangerous mission - and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?
 
MY REVIEW:

This book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I was utterly and truly glued to my e-reader as I was reading. There was just as much action, scorching love making scenes, and witty banter between these characters as there was in the first book. Some scenes had me squirming in my seat and panting with excitement. It was just...DECADENT! My Demon Determined  was a thrilling second book in the My Demon Trilogy. I enjoyed reading more about Seraphina and Cole. I got to see the struggles they go through as they find away to be together and escape the clutches of the angels since they want Sera back. Cole was one of those males you read about often: Arrogant, handsome, determined, and downright sexy as..well hell. I give this a Five out of Five Stars! I highly, and I mean HIGHLY recommend you pick this story up along with the first book, My Decadent Demon if you haven't already done so. It's short, but not too short, yet amazingly written with some witty banter and good, strong characters. Alicia and Nikita, I cannot wait to see what you have in store in the third and final installment. WAY TO GO!

DGHL Review & Giveaway







Blurb

The fate of the world is not something a girl wants on her shoulders, and that is especially true for Lorelei McAlister. Unfortunately for her, that is exactly where the world’s fate has decided to take up residence. Lorelei has seen firsthand the horrors that lie beneath our everyday world. And those horrors are getting her friends killed. Because of this, she agrees to leave the sanctity of her hometown and is sent to a different world entirely. A boarding school. But even here she is being watched. Someone knows what she is. What she carries inside her soul. And on top of that she’s seeing visions. This is nothing new for Lorelei. But these visions are something more: death, destruction, and the end of the world. Lorelei must face the fact that there are people who want her dead, and no matter where she goes, no matter how far she runs, the lives of her friends and family are in mortal peril. Lucky for her, her friends and family include the handsome Angel of Death, a fiercely protective half-angel, and a ragtag group of loyal supporters who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty in the name of fighting pure evil.

Note: I was giving a ARC copy of this book through Netgalley for my honest and TRUE review.

MY REVIEW:
 
I give this a FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS...BIG ONES!! I was absolutely and utterly amazed and pleased with the final installment to the Darklight Series. This book was everything I hoped for and more. I couldn't believe how the story twisted from one reality to the next and almost back again, INCREDIBLE! I think I have an even bigger crush on Jared now then I did before reading this story. He is just...perfect. Him and Lorelei, Brooklyn, Cameron, and Casey aka Glitch, are some downright fun and epic characters that will no doubt end up being the ultimate best characters out there, especially in the YA world. I met some new characters and seen some twists that will leave your jaw hanging open, that left me completely stunned in the BEST way. I want to so bad, to say more about this book, but I just can't be that cruel and giveaway the story, so if you haven't picked this book up what are YOU waiting for? I honestly can say this book ROCKED and I can't believe this is the third and final book in this incredible series. I am dying to know though...what will Darynda Jones come up with next?

Review of Healing a Cowboy's Heart by Sandy Sullivan

 
 
Howdy folks! Today I am part of Sandy Sullivan's Healing  A Cowboy's Heart Blog Tour. This is my HONEST AND TRUE REVIEW. We hope you will take the time to check out this review and to follow the rest of the blogs on this awesome Blog Tour.
 
BLURB:
Jeffery Young is tired of women and their games. His son’s mother did enough damage to his heart to last a lifetime. Now, he had to deal with the architect helping the land developers tear up the local ranches for their houses. Not on his watch.

Terri Kennedy had her own plans. As the architect for a large land development in Bandera Texas, the deal would put her business on the map, but dealing with the stubborn, bullheaded male from the local ranch didn’t come with her job description. Maybe staying on their guest ranch would give her some clues as how to handle Mr. Stubborn Jackass.

Will the secrets she’s harboring keep him from getting close?

Can he learn to trust women again or should be play the game to find out what’s she’s up to?
 
 
MY REVIEW:
 
Healing a Cowboy's Heart is one of the best books I read this year! I give this a EASY FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS! This story had everything. A sexy, stubborn cowboy. A sassy, spirited woman who doesn't know the meaning of give up and a ranch that any person in the world would be glad to call home. I found Jeffery to be the kind of cowboy who I wished I could meet in the real world. He is a VERY loving father, a kind hearted man with shadows on his heart but who is also capable of extreme goodness and can be very pig headed. Now Terri, she is my kind of gal filled with warmth, sassiness, a feisty mouth when you get her going but who is also is very good with children and is just as stubborn as Jeffery, which in my opinion, made them the perfect match. I enjoyed how steamy the sex scenes were and yet how real the whole thing felt to me. It reminded me of how two people in real life would work through a relationship. We know that their are hardships yet moments of utter bliss and as I was reading this book I got to experience it all and that to me, just made this whole book that much more interesting. I can not say enough good things about this book and hope a couple of you lovely peeps would give Sandy Sullivan's Healing a Cowboy's Heart a whirl. I am just about positive you will LOVE IT!

Review of Shiver by Tiffinie Helmer

 
 
I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest review.
 
BLURB:
 
He’s a wolf without a pack... Graphic novelist, Aidan Harte, writes about the kind of heroes he knows he’ll never be. He’s returned to the forgotten gold mining town of Chatanika, Alaska to scatter his father’s ashes and close out the bastard’s life. He plans to get in and get out  without seeing a soul. That is, until things take a deadly turn. 

She’s a raven who’s clipped her wings...

Raven Maiski’s thrilled Old Man Harte is dead. But she’s not happy about the return of his son, Aidan—her soul mate and enemy—who promised never to step foot back in Chatanika. If she doesn't run him out of town fast, he'll uncover what she's hidden from him.

When word of the miser’s death spreads, danger erupts in a hunt for gold
that will either lead to redemption...or blood.
 
MY REVIEW:
 
This book deserved a full FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS which I gave this story willingly and happily. I was absolutely AMAZED with this story. It was downright addicting! Shiver was heartfelt, touching, passion filled, and surprisingly amusing, with a touch of murder thrown in the mix. I fell in absolute lust with Aidan and Raven was such a likable person, even if I did want to smack her on the back of her head a few times for being so stubborn and pigheaded. But their son, Fox was such a charmer and a true sweetheart and incredibly wise and brave. Eva and Fiona were two other characters I liked immensely too. They were both sweet, yet sassy spitfires that had no trouble telling it like it is. This story was well-written, with the kind of characters you would like to meet in real life, and a compelling plot that just kept me attached to my Nook for hours. I hope you pick this book up September 9th on the release day. If not, you will miss out on a superb read. This was one emotional rollercoaster ride I'm glad I got on, one I enjoyed greatly. I HIGHLY and I mean HIGHLY recommend this book.

Review of The Guardian's Witch by Ruth A. Casie

 
I received an ARC copy of this book through Netgalley for my honest review. First off I have to tell you I just LOVE..and I mean LOVE this cover! The colors and hues are stunning. The title is also a favorite of mine. I think the cover goes perfectly with the title and it was the two of these things combined that instantly grabbed my attention.
 
BLURB:
England, 1290
Lord Alex Stelton can't resist a challenge, especially one with a prize like this: protect a castle on the Scottish border for a year, and it's his. Desperate for land of his own, he'll do anything to win the estate—even enter a proxy marriage to Lady Lisbeth Reynolds, the rumored witch who lives there.
Feared and scorned for her second sight, Lisbeth swore she'd never marry, but she is drawn to the handsome, confident Alex. She sees great love with him but fears what he would think of her gift and her visions of a traitor in their midst.
Despite his own vow never to fall in love, Alex can't get the alluring Lisbeth out of his mind and is driven to protect her when attacks begin on the border. But as her visions of danger intensify, Lisbeth knows it is she who must protect him. Realizing they'll secure their future only by facing the threat together, she must choose between keeping her magic a secret and losing the man she loves.

 
MY REVIEW:
 
There are not a ton of historical romances that can capture my attention and keep me locked onto the book without yawning, but this was stunning. I gave this a FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS. A total enjoyable, fun, sigh-worthy romance that kept my eyes glued to my kindle needing to know how the story ended. I really felt that Alex and Lisbeth had the perfect chemistry and just made the whole story incredible. The passion was there, crackling on the pages and I could tell that their love for one another was strong. There was nothing that was left out. It really was the perfect historical romance with just the right amount of everything. I also thought the ending fit nicely with the story and can't think of a better one. A worthy read and one I definitely recommend. Hoping for more from Ruth A. Casie.

Review of Spanking Bench Confessionals by Cleo Taurus

 
 
 
I hope y'all are having a FABILICIOUS Hump Day! Speaking of hump day, I am so thrilled to be doing a review for Spanking Bench Confessional by Cleo Taurus! This book was stunning, hot, emotional, steamy...well you get my drift. This book was giving to me in exchange for a HONTEST review.
 
 
Blurb:
 
Master of discipline, Preacher, has enjoyed an endless line of subs begging for his special brand of punishment. Every moment of control is like ambrosia until the day he meets the one woman who would need him most.

Rose is a woman with dark secrets until the seams of her chaotic lifestyle begin to slowly fall apart. Keeping everything bottled up is merely a survival tactic until she meets the one man who refuses to accept her excuses.

Will her natural submissive nature allow Preacher to help her overcome her past? Or will she run away as she has always done, leaving her empty and full of regret for the rest of her life?
 
 
MY REVIEW:
I give this a FOUR IN A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!! I fell so hard for Preacher. I immediately got a picture of this big buff, drop dead gorgeous hunk of baldness and just nearly sighed with absolute pleasure just from the image. When I read the description of him and I knew he would be my very next book boyfriend. He is intense but has such a tender streak that made me melt. Rose was the type of woman I could relate to. She is strong willed with a gentle soul but who needs to let her emotions flow once in a while. She lets things build up to a point that she needs Preacher's discipline to let it all out. And boy does he do it in a way that even I want to have a taste of his dark treatment. He knows the best way to letting things go is through a good, sometimes hard spanking. I found myself totally consumed in this short story and was immensely pleased with it. I truly hope to see more in this new series by talented author Cleo Taurus. I recommend this and think once you pick this short read up you will be HOOKED on Preacher too. Just make sure you have a bottle of ice water next to you just to be on the safe side. *WINK*
 
This is my absolute HONEST review and I hope you go with my recommendation to check this incredible short story out. Happy Hump Day!

Review of Never Deal With Dragons by Lorenda Christensen

 
 
I hope everyone has had a good weekend. I am getting ready to have a birthday party for my son who is turning 10 today. But before I get ready for that, I just HAD to get my review up for all you fine readers. Today I am reviewing a paranormal romance featuring sexy dragon shifters and feisty heroines. Never Deal with Dragons by Lorenda Christensen was a real treat for me and I hope you follow my recommendation and pick up this delightfully fun and sexy book.
 
Blurb:
Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it's her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her "typical" day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame who sneaked out of her bed two years ago, taking her heart and a handful of classified documents with him.
Myrna would love to show Trian the door, but he's been sent by North America's reigning dragon lord for help negotiating a truce with a powerful rival to avert war. Myrna agrees to help, even though she'll be stuck with Trian as a partner.
As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive—and still irresistibly attractive. Though her brain tells her not to forget his betrayal, her body feels differently. When they learn the enemy dragon lord is planning something no one could have imagined, Myrna has to learn who she can trust before she loses not only her heart, but her life.

My Review:
 
I rated this baby a FIVE out of FIVE Stars! I LOVE shifter romances and this one had dragon shifters. SWEET! I enjoyed so much reading about Myrna and Trian. They had such great chemistry and were both amusing in their own way and very passionate. I found myself chuckling, and sighing, and even close to tears throughout this book. It was delightfully good and so well written. It had consistency, the story itself flowed well and definitely kept me both, intrigued and delighted. The sex was out-of-this-world hot and will make anyone pleased to have picked up a copy of this book. I hope to see more work from Lorenda Christensen, especially if they contain hot Dragon shifters. This MUST go on your TBR pile!
 
 
Well there you go my beautiful peeps. I hope you give Lorenda Christensen a chance and pick up a copy of Never Deal with Dragons for yourself and get lost in the world of dragon shifters. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Review of My Decadent Demon by Nikita Jakz and Alicia Dawn



 
Happy Thursday! Today I am pleased to say I am reviewing a book so good and wonderful that it just makes me sigh whenever I think of it, written by a couple of new and VERY talented authors, Nikita Jakz and Alicia Dawn. These ladies are FABILICIOUS in their style of writing and had me very glad to have read their very fine book.
 
Blurb:
Seraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.
But not her ability to flee…
A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…
Until fate catches up with him.
A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.
As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?
 
My Review:
I gave this book a FOUR AND A HALF STARS! This was such a unique and well written story with very likeable characters, a easy to follow storyline, and just plenty of smoking hot passion, with a sprinkle of humor. I was drawn to both Cole and Seraphina and their story from the beginning and I was both thrilled with the turn of events within the story and sad to see it end. Even though this was not a long read, it was still quite good and I didn't feel like anything was left unsaid or left out. I found this story both fun and sweet and was just plain an enjoyable read. I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for more stories from Nikita Jakz and Alicia Dawn.
 
I truly hope that this review was helpful and will maybe make YOU check out these new authors and their wonderful book, My Decadent Demon. May you have a great day and find many great reads.

Review of Witch Bound by Eleri Stone




 
Afternoon y'all! I am so glad to be back to writing up some reviews and to get away from my crazy life. Today I am reviewing Witch Bound by Eleri Stone. A paranormal romance featuring witches, shape-shifters, danger, family duty and of course, romance.


Blurb:

Book two of Twilight of the Gods

Raquel Lindgren knows what her future holds. An arranged marriage. A new home in Ragnarok, Iowa, with another clan of refugees from Asgard. She should be happy. But there's a mental block preventing her from tapping in to her true abilities as a witch. And she's more attracted to the best man than she is to the groom…

Fen can't believe he's falling for his best friend's future wife. As a hound, a wolf shifter, his duty lies with the pack. He's seen too many hounds destroyed by love, and he's sworn never to take a mate, never to have children of his own. He can't deny his desire for Raquel, but she deserves more than he can offer her.

Raquel's been raised to trust in magic, her clan and her destiny. But when a vengeful demon threatens to break out of Asgard and destroy the clan, Raquel learns she must trust in love if she is to take the future into her own hands.

My Review:
As you read, this is the second book of Twilight of the Gods and even though I haven't read the first one, I thought this book was pretty darn good. I gave this a 3 and a half STARS. I really enjoyed the backstory, the characters, and the chemistry. It was well-written and easy to follow. I really thought the names were different and unique, like Raquel and Fen but for this being a paranormal romance, the names fit perfectly. I enjoyed watching these two fall in love and struggle with the fact that Raquel was marrying Fen's best friend yet when passion ignites between these two, they do whatever they can to be together and fight the demon that threatens their family, friends, and most of all, each other. A very good second book. I am certainly going to be checking out the first book and I hope there will be a third as well. Eleri Stone is a author you definitely want to keep an eye out for.

I hope you found this review helpful and hope that maybe you will check out this book and author. Have a great day!

Review of Unbridled Temptation (Montana Double Riders 1) by Elle Saint James

 
 
Happy Hump Day folks! Today's Review is about Unbridled Temptation by talented author Elle Saint James. This is a story about a couple of good looking cowboys, a old western town in an amusement park, and a beautiful young woman looking for her runaway sister in said amusement park. She meets both mouthwatering men and can't help but to give them a ride..I mean try. *Wink wink*
 
 
 
Blurb:
 
Jocelyn Demarco has gone to great lengths searching for her runaway sister, including something she swore she’d never do. Taking a single day off to relieve some stress from her journey and also to enjoy her passion for history in an Old West–themed town, she finds sexy cowboys Kendall Forrester and Logan Pearson and can’t keep her lips off of either man. They take the occasion to tie her up and control her sexual bliss, teaching her about the pleasures they enjoy. Being bound and blindfolded becomes her newly discovered satisfaction. Confirmed bachelors Kendall and Logan never thought they’d find a woman who would make them ache at her departure. They’ve never wanted to settle down until Jocelyn came along. After she leaves, they discover her deception. Will their wickedly dark and sexy lifestyle intrigue Jocelyn enough to come back to Montana for another taste, or will the secret they’ve discovered keep them from trusting her to pursue a future?
 
 
My Review:
 
I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. It was fun reading a romance book about cowboys in a Western family amusement park. It was a different twist on your average cowboy who works or owns a ranch. Kendall and Logan are perfectly handsome rascals who own this authentic looking Western town who just like to recreate the Old West for families that wanted a small taste of the Old West without having to read about it in a history book. When Logan plays at being a highwayman and robs the " wagon" passing by, he meets beautiful innocent Jocelyn and since she doesn't have any fancy jewels or money, decides to "steal" a kiss instead. Sparks instantly fly between these two then comes Kendall as the sexy sheriff who can't help but to taste Jocelyn for himself as well. They decide to have a fun night filled with hot sex between the three of them before Jocelyn goes on her way again to find her wayward sister. She ends up coming back a few weeks later because she craves the dark tastes in the bedroom that those sexy men describe to her and she wants..MORE!! This story was a wonderful first book in this series and I can't help but to wonder what other sexy men there are in this little Western Town and what other delights they play out with their women. If you like sexy cowboys, innocent women who love to be tied up and a Old Western Town, then you will no doubt be in love with this series.

Review of Bewitched By The Moon and Interview featuring Morgan Fox, author of Bewitched



I am super excited today because I have the FABULOUS Morgan Fox here to harass, I mean Interview. She is the author of  Bewitched By The Moon. The fifth installment of her incredible Moonlight Shifter Series. First off, lets get to the interview and don't forget to check out my review afterwards and feel free to comment on what you think of Morgan Fox and her delightful Moonlight Shifter Series!
 
 
Please give a big welcome to the gorgeous Morgan Fox! First off Mrs. Fox I would like to say thank you for being here with me today and I would also like to say how much I adore your Moonlight Shifter Series.
 
What was your favorite book growing up and why?
Sadly, I did not read much as a kid. I didn’t sit still long enough. I was always day dreaming or being a busy kid with way too much imagination. I spent most of my time creating make believe worlds.
One summer I rewrote the Star Wars Trilogy to include a sexy love interest for Luke Skywalker. He so needed a strong woman to call his own.
But…the first book that ever held my attention long enough to complete didn’t happen until 1992 when I picked up a copy of R.L. Stine’s Goodnight Kiss. A Fear Street Super Chiller that was about a young girl who was lured away from her first love by another boy. His intoxicating kiss left her craving more. His kiss was the kiss of a vampire.
I couldn’t put the book down. I blasted through all 216 pages like they were nothing. That started my insatiable hunger for more books just like that. Now I have a personally library at home with more than 2000 titles covering my shelves.
 
Did you always want to be an author?
Some people are born knowing exactly what they are meant to do with their lives. I was one of them. Even though I tried to take a different path in life, I still found my way back to writing.
My first full book was completed when I was 15. It was about a family who was all musicians and while touring the country found the girls of their dreams.  
What can I say? Writing romance is in my blood and always has been.
 


We know that you have your Texas Stallion Series and the Moonlight Shifter Series which are both incredibly good, but which series would you consider to be your favorite?


       An author loves all her babies. There is something unique and magical about each and every one of my stories. I often take a stroll back through the books and get swept away by the words and see it all happening again as if I was writing it for the first time and learning each character from scratch.
       The Moonlight Shifters was the first series I started so that makes it very special. Plus, the characters have blown me away with their strength, courage and love for one another.
       Texas Stallions was my first western series and I loved the drama of the stories, living on a ranch, strong men chasing down villains to save the women they loved, and the hard working souls that poured out of each character.
       I’ve also written a series called Cowboys & Werewolves. This series is amazing to me since I took pieces of both the Moonlight Shifters and Texas Stallions and created a little Texas paranormal world all my own.
       I can’t seem to pick just one…
 
How many more books are going into your Moonlight Shifter Series?

Currently there are six books in the series:

Seduced by the Moon
Tempted by the Moon
Enticed by the Moon
Ravished by the Moon
Bewitched by the Moon
Enslaved by the Moon
 
All books are available, except Enslaved which I’m currently working on now.


Which Moonlight Shifter book is your personal favorite and why?


      I’ve loved each book so much in the series, but one in particular has stood out in my mind. Ravished by the Moon. I am in love with Dominic and Reyes and the relationship they have with the heroine. I found their chemistry explosive at times.

       And as I’m writing Enslaved by the Moon, I feel so much of what I liked about Ravished by the Moon. The passion of these characters and the turmoil they must face…simply breathtaking and a pleasure to write.  

Thanks So much for stopping by and I can't wait for the next book in your delightfully sinful Moonlight Shifter Series!

  
I gave this book a Four out of Five stars. I really like Tiffany. I can totally get a image of her as a fey witch. She has all the right traits for a innocent young fey. Smart, shy, gorgeous, and not really a fighter. BUT she does have a spark of feistiness in her that gives her a smidgen of awesomeness that I look for in a good heroine. Now Zane he is a great alpha male. Full of testosterone and oozing sexiness, curiosity, and the kind of smarts you don't find in really good looking men. He has a burning passion for this young witch that makes it that much brighter reading their story. I like how there never seems to be a boring moment. There is ALWAYS something going on in all the pages. Fighting attraction, fleeing from or taking down the enemy following them, jealousy when another man comes around Zane's mate and vice versa. Incredible! Morgan Fox created a world you want to be in where males show their females who is in charge and why they make such great protectors. I love her style of writing and can easily get lost in one of her books. Honestly, I couldn't ask for more in a great read. If you want a spicy, erotic romance with sexy werewolves and brave yet innocent heroines then I suggest you pick up one of Morgan Fox's Moonlight Shifter books.

ARC: Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones




Never underestimate the power of a woman
on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high.
—T-shirt

      Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper.  She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire.  However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case.  Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth…but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.  When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help.  Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.



Excerpt...
Ask me about life after death.
—T-shirt often seen on Charley Davidson,
    a grim reaper with questionable morals

The dead guy at the end of the bar kept trying to buy me a drink.
Which figured. No one else was even taking a second look and I’d
dressed to the nines. Or, at the very least, the eight- and- a-halves.
But the truly disturbing part of my evening was the fact that my
mark, one Mr. Marvin Tidwell, blond real estate broker and suspected
adulterer, actually turned down the drink I’d tried to buy
him.

Turned it down!

I felt violated.

I sat at the bar, sipping a margarita, lamenting the sad turn my life
had taken. Especially to night. This case was not going as planned.
Maybe I wasn’t Marv’s type. It happened. But I was oozing interest.
And I wore makeup. And I had cleavage. Even with all that going for
me, this investigation was firmly wedged between the cracks of no and
where. At least I could tell my client, aka Mrs. Marvin Tidwell, that it
would seem her husband was not cheating on her. Not randomly,
anyway. The fact that he could’ve been meeting someone in par tic ular
kept me glued to my barstool.

“C-come here often?”

I looked over at the dead guy. He’d finally worked up the courage
to approach and I got a better view of him. I figured him for the runt
of the litter. He wore round- rimmed glasses and a tattered baseball
cap that sat backwards on top of muddy brown hair. Add to that a
faded blue T-shirt and loosely ripped jeans and he could’ve been a
skater, a computer geek, or a backwoods moonshiner.

His cause of death was not immediately apparent. No stab wounds
or gaping holes. No missing limbs or tire tracks across his face. He
didn’t even look like a drug addict, so I couldn’t tell why he’d died at
such a young age. Taking into account the fact that his baby- faced
features would make him look younger than he probably was, I estimated
him to be somewhere around my age when he’d passed.

He stood waiting for an answer. I thought “Come here often?”
was rhetorical, but okay. Not wanting to be perceived as talking to
myself in a room full of people, I responded by lifting one shoulder
in a halfhearted shrug.

Sadly, I did. Come here often. This was my dad’s bar, and while I
never set up stings here for fear of someone I knew blowing my
cover, this just happened to be the very same bar Mr. Tidwell frequented.
At least if it came to a knockdown drag- out, I might have
some backup. I knew most of the regulars and all of the employees.

Dead Guy glanced toward the kitchen, seeming nervous before he
refocused on me. I glanced that way as well. Saw a door.

“Y-you’re very shiny,” he said, drawing my attention back to him.

He had a stutter. Few things were more adorable than a grown
man with boyish features and a stutter. I stirred my margarita and
pasted on a fake smile. I couldn’t talk to him in a room full of living,
breathing patrons. Especially when one was named Jessica Guinn, to
my utter mortification. I hadn’t seen her fiery red hair since high
school but there she sat, a few seats down from me, surrounded by a
group of chattering socialites who looked almost as fake as her boobs.
But that could be my bitterness rearing its ugly head.

Unfortunately, my forced smile only encouraged Dead Guy.

“Y-you are. You’re like the s-sun reflecting off the chrome bumper of
a f-fifty- seven Chevy.”

He splayed his fingers in the air to demonstrate, and my heart was
gone. Damn it. He was like all those lost puppies I tried to save as a
child to no avail because I had an evil stepmother who believed all
stray dogs were rabid and would try to rip out her jugular. A fact that
had nothing to do with my desire to bring them into the house.

“Yeah,” I said under my breath, doing my best ventriloquist impersonation,
“thanks.”

“I’m D-Duff ,” he said.

“I’m Charley.” I kept my hands wrapped around my drink lest he
decide we needed to shake. Not many things looked stranger to the
living world than a grown woman shaking air. You know those kids
with invisible friends? Well, I was one of those. Only I wasn’t a kid,
and my friends weren’t invisible. Not to me, anyway. And I could see
them because I’d been born the grim reaper, which was not as bad as
it sounded. I was basically a portal to heaven, and whenever someone
was stuck on Earth, having chosen not to cross over immediately after
death, they could cross to the other side through me. I was like a giant
bug light, only what I lured was already dead.

I pulled at my extra- tight sweater. “Is it just me, or is it really
warm in here?”

His baby blues shot toward the kitchen again. “Hot is m-more
like it. S-so, I— I couldn’t help but notice you t-tried to buy that guy
over there a drink.”

I let my fake smile go. Freed it like a captured bird. If it came back
to me, it would be mine. If not, it never was. “And?”

“You’re b-barking up the wrong tree with that one.”

Surprised, I put my drink down— the one I bought myself— and
leaned in a little closer. “He’s gay?”

Duff snorted. “N-no. But he’s been in here a lot lately. He l-likes
his women a little . . . l-looser.”

“Dude, how much sluttier can I get?” I indicated my attire with a
sweep of my hand.

“N-no, I mean, well, you’re a l-little—” He let his gaze travel the
length of me. “—t-tight.”

I gasped. “I look anal?”

He drew in a deep breath and tried again. “H-he only hits on
women who are more s-substantial than you.”

Oh, that wasn’t offensive at all. “I have depth. I’ve read Proust.
No, wait, that was Pooh. Winnie- the- Pooh. My bad.”

He shifted his non ex is tent weight, cleared his throat, and tried
again. “More v-voluptuous.”

“I have curves,” I said through a clenched jaw. “Have you seen
my ass?”

“Heavier!” he blurted out.

“I weigh— Oh, you mean he likes bigger women.”

“E-exactly, while I on the other hand—”

Duff ’s words faded into the background like elevator music. So
Marv liked big women. A new plan formed in the darkest, most corrupt
corners of Barbara. My brain.

Cookie, otherwise known as my receptionist during regular business
hours and my best friend 24/7, was perfect. She was large and in
charge. Or well, large and kind of bossy. I picked up my cell phone
and called her.

“This better be good,” she said.

“It is. I need your assistance.”

“I’m watching the first season of Prison Break.

“Cookie, you’re my assistant. I need assistance. With a case. You
know those things we take on to make money?”

Prison. Break. It’s about these brothers who—”

“I know what Prison Break is.”

“Then have you ever actually seen these boys? If you had, you
would not expect me to abandon them in their time of need. I think
there’s a shower scene coming up.”

“Do these brothers sign your paycheck?”

“No, but technically neither do you.”

Damn. She was right. It was much easier to just have her forge my
name.

“I need you to come flirt with my mark.”

“Oh, okay. I can do that.”

Nice. The F-word always worked with her. I filled her in and told
her the deal with Tidwell, then ordered her to hurry over.

“And dress sexy,” I said right before hanging up. But I regretted
the sexy part instantly. The last time I told Cookie to dress sexy for a
much- needed girls’ night out on the town, she wore a lace- up corset,
fishnet stockings, and a feather boa. She looked like a dominatrix. I’d
never been the same.

My Review:
As Soon as I heard there was a Fifth installment for the Charley Davidson Series, I was instantly and utterly anticipating this book. Then, when I got a looksee at both the title and cover, I was lost. I knew this was going to be epic and once I got a hold of this I was never going to be the same. This was even better then the first four books and I didn't think that was going to be possible. I mean really, better then the last four? Oh yea. WAY BETTER. There is more Reyes, more mystery, more passion, more witty dialogue from our favorite characters and a whole ton of never ending surprises. I was entranced in the story as soon as I opened it. Stuck in Charley's world full of doom, gloom, and fun-loving friends and family. Oh and that sexy Son of Satan, Reyes Farrow who lives right next door from Charley! Oh how I envy Charley.. and maybe a bit of Cookie too! Don't know what I'm talking about because you haven't read it yet? Well lets just say Cookie got a little something out of the deal with Reyes. I won't say more because what would the fun be in that? *smirks*  Anywho... I LOVED This book! Utterly and truly LOVED it. I gave it a Five out of Five Stars! No contest. No hardship. This book is MY personal favorite and I truly think it is the BEST so far in the Series. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that Darynda Jones will outdo herself in the next book. NO DOUBT! Every time I think she couldn't make a better one, I was wrong, so now I shall forever be anticipating and craving the next one... and the next one after that and so on and so on. If you haven't checked out this book, or this series, I highly suggest you hightail it to the nearest B&N or Amazon page and pick up your book. Or even go to your local bookstore and pick the paperback up because I'm telling you, You will be glad you did.
