Soft Science Fiction Cygnus International Award Finalist.
Scientists have genetically engineered a race of mutants with superhero-like abilities.
Earth is dying and mutants which no longer wishes to follow orders of the tyrannical government. Rebel Evos and government factions clash in a fight for survival and control. Tessa must choose a side, but both sides seem corrupted by power.
What happens when the world goes sideways on humanity? Humans have pushed Mother Earth to her breaking point and our worst fears are realized. To survive, scientists turn to genetically enhanced super-humans as our saviors. What happens when our saviors realize they are the superior species and they no longer wish to take orders?
Tessa struggles to survive the harsh new environment of earth in addition to hostile super-humans called Evos. Common people are stuck between the fight for power between what remains of human government factions and new Evo leaders. Tessa is forced to make a choice on which side has humanity’s best interests in mind. She begins to realize the greedy and destructive nature of humanity and the possibility that neither side is righteous, and both are corrupted by power.
The story starts out with a bang and the action continues clear to the end of the book. Tessa lives in a post apoc world on a ravaged earth where everyone is just trying to survive. The basic humans try to do their part and lay low so as not to bring down the wrath of the Evos, the superhumans, who stopped taking orders from us lowly humans a long time ago. Tessa is pushed to the brink when an Evo attacks her school and her sister is missing. She and her best friends are put in the middle of a fight trying to save her sister and Tessa finds she may have some abilities of her own. She then gets to meet some other Evos who are trying to bring the bad Evos down so that everyone can live in harmony. She feels that she is being manipulated for her powers and this causes her to struggle with figuring out where she belongs in this crazy new world.
The story was written well with good world building and a great story line. There is also the political component that lurks in the midst of the story. Each side thinks they are right and Tessa has to figure out where she belongs or if she tries to run from them both. There were quite a few typos in the book and some areas were a little difficult to read because of this. Overall the story was great and definitely has me intrigued. A solid 4 stars.

When an attorney’s violent family history reemerges along with the one man who broke her heart, she must summon the courage to survive.
Both a victim and a witness…
Haunted by her family’s criminal organization, The Order, and her own kidnapping encounters, lawyer Lila Caldwell copes by immersing herself in her practice. But her career stalls when her mentor’s dying words send her on a quest for secret documents that could save her life.
An unwitting pawn…
Upon learning of his new employer’s involvement in evil spy games, computer scientist Cody Green believes The Order is responsible for the dirty deeds but to prove it means he has to risk not only his life but the woman he reluctantly left behind.
Lila and Cody’s lives converge in a tangled web of romance and deadly plots. Soon, they discover they’ve been caught in a trap, and the only way out is to engage in a dangerous game to take down The Order…
Oh, the suspense! This whole series has been crazy intense. I really enjoy how this story followed Lila and Cody into adulthood. In the last book they were the best of friends and I hoped that they would both continue together and be happy. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. The world is full of all types of evil. People in general are crazy and the Sinclair’s put the icing on the cake! Unfortunately the turmoil that the Sinclair’s started is still in full swing. Lila is an attorney now, and Cody is an IT guru. They are both continuing to work against The Order with characters from the past books from this series. People are getting murdered, lives are being threatened, and we have to go back to some of our old ways in order to stop them. The lies and deceit have not stopped and are intricately woven throughout this rollercoaster of a story. There are so many moving parts that you don’t know if you need to look left or right. And in the midst of the insanity, Lila and Cody are finding each other again (swoon). One of my favorite things about this series is that it is so unpredictable, and this one is no exception. An old enemy surfaces and will make your jaw drop. Rooting for our favorite heroes will keep you on your toes as you turn each suspenseful page and will keep your heart pounding all the way to the end. Order of Truth was the perfect finish to this series. Bravo!
As a lifelong reader of an eclectic pool of books from mystery/thrillers, science fiction, contemporary romance, and the classics, Lisa Caviness has never been without a bookmarked novel on the nightstand. Like many writers, she started crafting stories as a child. However, creativity took a back seat to the pursuit of a serious career in pharmaceutical and medical device research. In 2013, Lisa decided to get serious about writing and joined Romance Writers of America. Later, she joined Sisters in Crime. The education she has received has been invaluable but more importantly the support from fellow writers has enriched her in thrilling and unexpected ways.
Human beings aren’t the only creatures, in all the planes of existence, threatened by change and fear the unknown. Horace’s recent confrontations with ‘superior beings’ and the unusual circumstances of Niki’s pregnancy have placed a bounty on both their heads. That is, unless Jehna can broker a deal that ensures everyone involved has something to lose, without tearing the group of friends apart.
As the details of the blood-contract unfold, it becomes increasingly obvious it’s not ‘if’ the agreement will be broken, but when…
What will it mean for Horace and Niki when the lines are crossed, not to mention Shepard and their angelic allies? Will their enemies finally be able to swing the axe they’ve been grinding for centuries?
Which of the friends will fall under the heavy blade of revenge, and who will be left standing at the end of… Death Match?
Death Match is all sorts of sideways, full of “it’ll be fun”, enthusiastic consumption, and being uppercase FUCKED! This is one of my favorite books in this series but not for the same reasons I enjoyed the others. In the other books, there was a lot of crazy gore and crude humor that made the books ‘off the wall’ enjoyable for me. This one though, a lot of people matured and really grew as characters and more of a familial unit. Our ragtag band of misfits is in a world of trouble. Lives will be taken, some spared, and all in the name of what exactly? Even a sliver of God can make a loophole. The guys all band together and keep to the contract that Jehna laid out while constantly being surprised when they learn of another important piece of the contract. As the story unfolds it will pull at your heartstrings but also keeps you on your toes with the action and wit that I am sure will never go away with this group. I am going to patiently wait for the next installment in this series. In the meantime, I am going to read Bob’s book, Savaged. On the other hand, I really miss Shepard and Horace. I can’t wait to see what trouble the gang can get into next!
I was born high in the Andes and raised by a band of wandering gypsies. At the ripe old age of 7, I struck out on my own, dabbling in the arts of alchemy and personal financing. Neither of the trades paid off. At 13 I became the personal juggler for Stephen King, but alas, that didn’t last long either. Since then, I’ve wandered aimlessly through life and this planet, stopping along the way to help people and smite the wicked.
A little while ago I decided to try my hand at writing. I published The True Death series independently in 2015 and currently have twelve books published to date.
Viking dragon-shifter Ty Drekison relocates to LA from his Minnesota clan in preparation to battle the awakening of Níðhöggr, Destroyer of the World. But he can’t stay away from the delicious cuisine of his new favorite Chinese restaurant, or its beautiful owner, who whets his hunger. He can’t seem to say the right things around her, and he certainly can’t reveal his shifter abilities. But with a grim prophesy threatening the fate of the world, can he be blamed for seeking moments of sweet release with her… in bed?
Wu Lin’s newest loyal customer is a sexy Nordic god of a man who makes her inner dragon stand up and beg for bread and butter. She’d give up her family’s red bean bun recipe to get a peek at his mighty hammer, but she’s the last dragon-shifter of her clan, and her time and energy must be focused on the upcoming battle against the demon monster Móshen who is prophesized to demolish the Earth. Even so, Ty complements her in every way. Could it be she has found the yang to her yin… in bed?
This 33K novella is one in the Star of the North Dragon series, which can be read in any order or as standalone novellas.
What a Dragon Wants, you ask? Fortune cookies and to save the world! I love how this author took two different cultures and intricately weaved them together in such a way that created a truly unique story. Ty is of Viking heritage and Lin is of Chinese heritage. Turns out that both have dragon shifters in their history and both have been prophesied to fight a monster who will try and destroy the world. Ty and Lin both carry a heavy burden. The difference is that Ty has his family to help carry this burden and Lin believes she is the last of her kind. Ty and Lin’s story starts as a slow burn but when they come together, they ignite like something fierce. What they find is a love like no other and a passion that may possibly save the world. There is a delicate push and pull with these two that will have you rooting for them to the very end.
“I’m not a delicate flower that’s going to wilt. In fact, maybe I am a superhero assassin.”
“We are opposites Black dragon, white dragon; water and fire; Yin and Yang. A complete whole. Out of primal chaos, the universe creates itself, organizes into cycles. Life and death, good and bad, push and pull.”
True to this author’s writing fashion, there is lots of action, with tons of wit and snark, but a hawt and passionate love story woven within. These two are so different but so made for each other. It is hard not to have a crazy case of the feels for them. The beautiful part to this is that Ty’s brothers are getting their own stories! Can’t wait!
Ava Cuvay writes out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. She resides in central Indiana, USA with her own scruffy-looking nerfherder, kiddos who are growing up without her permission, and two kitties that make her laugh. She believes life is too short to bother with negative people, everything is better with Champagne, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.
Being back in my small hometown for Gran’s funeral sent me into a full-blown panic attack, and at that moment, a handsome stranger swooped in, becoming my salvation. From first glance, Brian made me weak in the knees with his commanding disposition and firm yet gentle touch. He pulled me in.
I took a chance on him…and all hell broke loose. Caught in the crosshairs of a mob war, I’m kidnapped for the sole purpose of being used as collateral in a power struggle I can’t begin to comprehend. I believed he would save me though. I needed to trust Brian to get me out of there and to introduce me to the enticing world of BDSM. Now, my life is in his hands as we battle against the clock to ensure my survival.
Visiting Illinois to catch up with an old friend was an ideal weekend…made far more delectable when I saw her. Genni was a damsel in distress who awoke my Dom side with a desperate need to protect her..to care for her..to guide her into my world.
But there is evil out there I can’t shield her from, and it ensnares her in its ominous web. With my family’s background in high-stakes security, I call them in to help me track down her kidnappers. One way or another, I will get her back alive, and I will never let her go again.
*Love Letters Lost is part of Samantha A. Cole’s Suspenseful Seduction World
Love Letters Lost is all about ending a chapter in your life and taking a chance on starting the next great adventure. This is such a wonderful story that pulls at your heartstrings but also has plenty of action, suspense, wit… and of course some amazing sexy time! Genni comes home to take care of her gran’s funeral. She is a mess over her gran’s death. She is trying to put on a great facade but Brian, a handsome sweet talking stranger, swoops in just at the right time to save her from herself. These two meet under not the greatest of circumstances but connect immediately and can’t stop thinking about each other. As these two start to get closer, an old friend decides to show his true colors and all sorts of truths start coming out of the woodwork. Including a secret about Brian being a Dom. An epic sh!tsh#w is going down and Genni is right in the middle. There is some fighting, some kidnapping, and some loving happening in what seems like the snap of a finger. Genni’s mind is whirling while all this is going on and trying to process Brian’s BDSM background. She is not sure if this is something she can get on board with, but also is in it a little too deep and not sure if she can just leave Brian alone. Thank the gods she decides to follow her heart (like her gran told her to) as she decides she needs to keep Brian and give this a try.
This is a beautiful love story with all the right elements to keep you on your toes. One thing that I really loved about this story is that the only information that Genni had about the BDSM lifestyle is from what she read in romance novels but this author does an amazing job of describing the lifestyle and giving glimpses of the scenes without the story being consumed with sex. The story itself pulls you in with a deathgrip until you read the last page. All the rest is a bonus!
Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life.

This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.
Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.

Digging through the years of heartache, Toni soon finds herself torn between the man she is committed to and the one who has always held her heart. As each layer unfolds before her, she discovers the root cause of her pain. Always believing the source was external, nothing could prepare her for the truth.
Landslide by Jenn Cooksey
For Erica and Cole, the bond of friendship was forged in childhood.
Now, torn and broken by grief, that bond will become paramount as two friends look to one another for comfort, strength, and hope in the aftermath of loss. On a journey taken both together and alone, Erica and Cole search for healing and life born anew. Although when mistakes, secrets and betrayal are revealed, the two must each learn to accept that even saints and some angels are human and people aren’t always who they appear to be.
But in the age old struggle to forget and forgive, realization dawns. And with it, so does the understanding that sometimes, the sturdiest foundation for the future lies buried in the dust of the past. Because, for some people…
…love is friendship caught on fire.
Domenico by K.I. Lynn
The mafia never lets you go.
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage. I’m in his territory. His prison. The beast.
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m not sure I can trust the hand I’m holding. The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem. Not even me.
**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing. There are triggers.**
Joshua: Love in Scrubs by A.J. Renee
The single life had been treating Hazel Rivera better than she’d anticipated. With no one to report to, she did as she pleased, which included if and when she’d have a man in her bed. She felt no shame in satisfying her own needs, but when toy-play goes wrong, she earns herself a visit to the emergency room.
Squirming in pain, the last thing she expected was to find a sexy nurse assigned to her room. She could lose herself in a man like him—sinful eyes, full lips, and a kindhearted attitude—but before she can catch Joshua Bradley again, she’s sent home.
When life hands them a second chance, will they risk their hearts?

But the difference between her and I? I know what I want. Her. And I won’t stop until I have her at my side. Forever.

Headed for some well-deserved shore leave, Shepard is gunned down in the streets of Seattle, a victim of “a mugging gone stupid”. He awakens, not in a hospital bed, but in the surreal world of Purgatory.
Within seconds of his arrival, he is saved from a gruesome and painful end, by his new best friend Horace. That’s Quintus Horatius Flaccus, the philosopher, to you Roman history buffs.

Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1) by Karina Halle
Perry Palomino seems like your average twenty-something girl on the surface. She’s had bad luck dating, her job sucks, and she’s disillusioned by her place in life, not sure exactly what she wants or where she’s even going.
She also sees ghosts, which makes things extra complicated, especially when she’d do anything to be normal.
But normal people don’t go exploring an abandoned and supposedly haunted lighthouse on the Oregon coast, where she ends up getting the attention of Dex Foray, an enigmatic producer who wants to exploit her talent for seeing the dead on his webseries.
At first, Perry’s not sure she wants to work with Dex on his amateur ghost-hunting show. He’s cocky, sarcastic, mysterious, and perhaps a little disturbed, not to mention aggravatingly sexy. But the more Perry works alongside Dex, her sanity tested at every turn, the more she realizes that falling for this man might just be the scariest thing of all.
Sometimes the ghosts we really need to fear are the ones that live in our pasts.
Ren: The Man Behind the Monster (Ren #1) by Sarah Noffke
Born with the power to control minds, hypnotize others, and read thoughts, Ren Lewis, is certain of one thing: God made a mistake. No one should be born with so much power. A monster awoke in him the same year he received his gifts. At ten years old. A prepubescent boy with the ability to control others might merely abuse his powers, but Ren allowed it to corrupt him. And since he can have and do anything he wants, Ren should be happy. However, his journey teaches him that harboring so much power doesn’t bring happiness, it steals it. Once this realization sets in, Ren makes up his mind to do the one thing that can bring his tortured soul some peace. He must kill the monster.
Willows in the End (The End Saga #1) by C.L. Zelle
They’re all dead.
Now, as my own body decides whether to live or die, I replay my entire life over and over in my mind. No longer do I want it to end, something has changed in me. Somehow, through all of this, I’ve found a will to go on, even if it’s in darkness. For the first time since I’ve been alive, I want to live.
Gideon says my scars will fade with time, but they don’t bother me. As if their absence would change what happened. They’re a badge of honor, reminding me what I went through, how brave I was, and that I made it out. That I can heal. If anything, these scars remind me every day that I’m still alive, and that things can change.
And they will.
My name is Grace Anne Vincent. I took the world, the people in it, for granted. I didn’t realize how precious my life was until someone turned off the lights, stripped it away from me. Until the men with needles came. They stole it all, leaving nothing but monsters, darkness, and death in their wake.
But I’m getting stronger every day. And though Gideon has his dark side, he’s growing stronger, too. We’ll make it together. We’ll create our own light, even if it’s hidden in the darkness.
Something out there beckons me, a desperate cry of a siren from the wreckage. It tells me to survive, to have hope. To love. To make things right again.
And I will.
Due to certain triggers and explicit sexual situations, this series may not be suitable for everyone, and is advised for ages 18 and up.

Welterweight (Hallow Brothers Book 1) by Tricia Andersen
Caleb Hallow doesn’t need anyone. All he needs is to dominate in the MMA cage and become world champion. His plans are derailed when he wakes up with a mysterious tattoo of his ancestors after a one-night stand with his opponent’s ex-girlfriend, Meg Riley. Sharing the mark with her joins them as mates for eternity. Can Caleb deal with Meg for the rest of his life? Can he keep her safe from his past as he falls deeply in love with her? And will she stay by him when she finds out he is actually a werewolf? It was just a fling, a chance to get revenge on her cheating ex. At least that’s what Meg Riley tries to convince herself. But the indescribable pull that draws her to the dark, dangerous Caleb Hallow tells her differently. Although she is furious when she finds the strange tattoo on her back after their night together, and even though he tells her some convoluted story about him being a werewolf, she can’t stay away from him. She can’t stop herself from falling for him. When her ex threatens Caleb’s life, how far will Meg go to save him? Will she be willing to sacrifice her life for his?
Fear University (Book 1) by Meg Collett
I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.
My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.
Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.
I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.
For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.
But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.
This book is recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.

When Granger’s heritage is revealed, Kaedi relinquishes the pleasure she finds in his arms, believing herself unworthy.

She resides in central Indiana with her own scruffy-looking nerfherder, kiddos who are growing up without her permission, and two kitties that make her laugh.

Susan Griscom writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.
She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.
Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.
Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing. Sign up for Susan Griscom’s newsletter: http://www.susangriscom.com/newsletter.html

I am so happy that I got to continue the journey with this group of strong kids! The book picks up right where The Unknown left off. The only thing is, the kids are definitely tired of Nevah, the AI on the ship, and ready to rebel. The story is action packed right from the beginning with lots of thought provoking situations that will keep you on your toes. When I read The Unknown, I thought I was going to have a problem reading from so many different points of view but quickly overcame that because all of their points of view are equally important, especially in this sequel. There are many moving parts and to see how each kid copes and reacts to these different situations is very humbling. I love how they quickly become a family.

“Life is dangerous. Death awaits all of us and loss lurks everywhere.”
The twists that this story throws their way is intense and absolutely makes this a page turner!
