I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This book is hella creepy. The short stories gave me some wigged out feelings and the poems made me stop to look around. The authors got what they were going for.

I admit when I got this anthology I was kinda like EH about reading it and then I started. Each story or poem makes you stop and think about how you handle the ”monsters in the bed” and other creepy imaging we have about fears we live with.

If you aren’t a horror fan like me, you still can appreciate the ability the authors have in giving you the creeps in just a few lines or pages!!

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.

 

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review Lobos: Big Bend Wolves by Victoria Danann and Teresa Gabelman

The Three Rivers Pack has been deeply embedded in Kerrville commerce and society for generations. They own businesses and hold government offices, including that of sheriff. But the influx of retirees and well-to-do building second homes in the Hill Country has squeezed the shifters for room to run.

The only answer is relocation to a less populated locale and that will require making a deal with the pack that holds that territory. The alliance struck by the two alphas is blood seal, a political mating between the Lobos alpha’s daughter and the Three Rivers alpha’s son. It’s the perfect solution that benefits both tribes.

Except nobody asked Fleet Ryder and Dani Alvarez if they were willing. And they aren’t.

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Teresa Gabelman comes together with Victoria Danann to bring us a new shifter story.

The Alpha of the Three Rivers pack realizes that it is time for his pack to move on, humans have moved in droves to their once little town and it’s just not safe anymore.

The Lobos pack has plenty of room, more than enough room for two packs, what they lack however is the funds to keep their pack going.  The two Alphas come to an agreement, Three Rivers will move and pay into the Lobos pack and both Alphas pledge that their children will marry the other.  

 Arranged marriages in this day and age is outrageous and Fleet, son of the Alpha from Three Rivers and Danita, the daughter of the Alpha from Lobos, are not happy that they have been thrown at the other for the sake of their packs.

Ok, this story maybe on the shorter side but Fleet and Danika’s story is awesome long or short.

The way these two know that no matter what they have to do what’s right for the packs and decide to see if they will make a good mated pair is really sweet and their friends!! Their besties all help them spend some time away from the packs and together before the mating.  

So, not only do we get one of the sweetest love stories, but let’s face it it’s shifters so it’s also HOT, we also get a little danger in the story too!!  Not everyone is so happy about this mating, even if the pair themselves were against it in the beginning.

I certainly hope we get to see more from these two lovely authors, they go together so well.

#WOTR19 #CompleteSeries #Paranormal – Grace of Gods Series by Kyleigh Castronaro


Ode To The Queen (Grace of Gods, #1)   Book 1Gods Save the Princess (Grace of Gods, #2)  Book 2

Tyranny of a Prince (Grace of Gods, #3) Book 3

All Hail the King: Modern Greek Gods YA/NA Series (Grace of Gods Book 4) Book 4

 

Book 1

After several millennia, the Greek Gods have awoken…

Unleashed from the depths of Tartarus the souls of the Gods returned to Earth, each claiming a vessel for themselves turning the lives of the chosen mortals upside-down.

Savannah is an average college student. She worked her butt off to get accepted into an exchange program to Greece getting her out of the States for the first time in her life. Little does she know that the exchange she signed up for was not quite as the brochure described.

Trapped on Mount Olympus amidst the other new Gods, Savannah learns the hard way that mythology is real and more dramatic than she could have ever imagined. And naturally, it all centers around the King of the Gods himself, Zeus, or as he likes to be called these days – Aidan.

With her heart on the line, Savannah embarks on a journey of self-discovery learning who her Goddess is and accepting that she’s really been in there all this time.

Book 2

In a world of Gods and mythologies Valentina still struggles to identify her own Goddess. Despite feeling out of place amongst others of her kind, nothing will stop her from protecting her friends from the dangers that begin to surround their new reign.

While grappling to name her inner Goddess, Valentina finds herself torn by the mysterious Griffin who leaves her frustrated and confused. She doesn’t understand the connection she feels toward him or why every time they start to get close he pulls away.

But relationships are the least of her problems when she’s kidnapped and trapped in the Underworld. Her Goddess has no choice but to awaken to help Valentina navigate her way through the doomed hallways of Hades and try to get back to Olympus before it’s too late for all the Olympians.

With a reluctant Goddess in her mind, Valentina fights to survive in a realm where death is the only outcome. Will history repeat itself or will the New Olympians write their own myths?

Book 3

Griffin has always known who his God was – the voice of self-loathing in the back of his mind. But his inability to adapt to the changing reality around him has nothing to do with accepting his God and everything to do with Hades’ place in the social stratosphere. The only thing that keeps him grounded is the beautiful Valentina, who stole his heart the first time she smiled.

But everything he has ever loved has been taken away from him and he doesn’t want Valentina to be another part of the pattern. So, he does what he thinks is the best thing to protect her. Even if it happens to be the one thing that might hurt her.

War has descended on Mount Olympus and Griffin finds himself thrust in between the Titans and Olympians. Soren, self-appointed leader of the Titans, intends to kill them all and turn Earth into his own playground of despair and destruction. As Prince of the Underworld Griffin can’t stand by and just let that happen.

He might appear to be the anti-hero but with the ever-changing political landscape of Olympus now is his chance to stand up and do the right thing. But will Hades let him? Will history repeat itself or will the New Olympians write their own myths?

Book 4

After several millennia, the Greek Gods have awoken…

Unleashed from the depths of Tartarus the souls of the Gods returned to Earth, each claiming a vessel for themselves turning the lives of the chosen mortals upside-down.

Aidan Cartwright has led a privileged life, wanting for nothing, having a perfect physique and face to go with it, his life is charmed. Then he finds out, to no great surprise, he has been chosen to bear the soul of the King of the Gods – Zeus.

“I have become the one thing I never wanted to be – my father. But now was my chance to change that, and to prove to myself I could be better.”

Caught up in a plot established over four hundred years ago Aidan has to over come his fears and insecurities, rising to be the man he’s always wanted to be but was too afraid to become.

It’s up to Aidan to save the world and the Greek Pantheon in this action-packed finale to the well-received Grace of Gods series by Kyleigh Castronaro!

FANGIRL TURNED WRITER. SLYTHERIN SHADOWHUNTER FROM DISTRICT FOUR.

I’m fairly confident that I came out of womb reading the book. I’ve always loved stories in whatever medium they come. Books, movies, television shows… It didn’t matter. I didn’t discriminate (I still don’t!). It was only a natural progression that I become a writer myself.

I’ve been telling stories for as long as I’ve been reading. Even if it was just standing in front of my family acting out dramatic retellings of my day or making up stories of my own it didn’t matter. It was only a matter of time until I branched out into being a real writer and sharing my stories with friends and strangers alike. And you know what? It’s the best job in the world.

I write dirty, sexy stories about humans & their supernatural lovers. I grew up dreaming of being a Greek Goddess, not a Princess, so I wrote a book about it. In my Grace of Gods series normal humans find out they possess the souls of Greek Gods within them. They are whisked out of their lives and brought to Mount Olympus, thrust into the new and dramatic lives of their Gods.

Life in a small town can be tough. It can be even tougher when you’re a witch whose magic regularly backfires. But Summer Thorne only wants one thing: to create the perfect sanctuary for unwanted animals. Nothing and no one is going to stop her. Not even the sexy sheriff who is determined to shut down her rescue center. And certainly not the laboratory where she illegally obtained her mischievous chimpanzee, Morty.


Sheriff Cooper Carlyle has one goal: to keep his town safe. That includes his stubborn neighbor, Summer, whether she wants him to or not. When the animals of Summer’s menagerie get loose and create havoc, he decides enough is enough. But things aren’t always as they appear, and Coop stumbles upon the secret the Thorne sisters have been hiding.

Coop and Summer discover Morty holds the key to unlock a twenty-year-old mystery surrounding the death of Summer’s mother. Now Coop is faced with breaking the law he is sworn to uphold in order to protect Summer and her beloved pet from a threat more dangerous than any of them imagined.

Autumn Thorne believed she discovered the perfect love. Yet the moment she revealed she was a witch, her relationship went to hell in a handbasket. Nearly a decade later, in an ironic twist of fate, the man who shunned her shows up on her doorstep and asks for her help to develop his own latent powers.

For the better part of nine years, Keaton Carlyle has tried to forget the one woman whose very touch made him burn with uncontrollable desire. Now, left with no choice, he must seek her out to master the magic building within. But the more time Keaton spends with Autumn, the more he realizes his old feelings for her have never truly been extinguished and the flames blaze hotter than ever.

When Autumn sets off on a mission to uncover an ancient artifact crucial to saving her mother, Keaton is hot on her heels, determined to make up for the wrongs of the past and rescue Autumn from the clutches of the madman holding her hostage. Faced with life or death, they must learn to work together. But can Autumn ever again trust the man who so cruelly betrayed her?

Book 3 –
Feeling hurt and more than a little betrayed, Winter “Winnie” Thorne decides it would be best for her new lover to forget their relationship ever happened. In an impulsive move, she casts a spell and wipes his memory clean. The recollection of their time together is now hers alone.

Every time Zane Carlyle sets eyes on Winnie Thorne’s enchanting face, déjà vu strikes. It’s as if their first date has already happened and their first kiss has already rocked his world. He can’t seem to shake the feeling there’s something he should remember. After Zane gains his magical abilities, his suppressed memories return along with a burning anger at being tricked. Zane decides turn-about is fair play.

When Winnie needs help recovering a charmed amulet, Zane offers his assistance, knowing it is the perfect opportunity to exact retribution for Winnie’s deception. This time, she’ll be the one who is played for a fool. But what starts out as a game of revenge turns dangerous when an old enemy resurfaces. Can Zane and Winnie put their differences aside to fight this deadly opponent, or will old wounds and animosity be their downfall?

What starts as a straightforward magical mission turns deadly.

Spring Thorne’s life is a mess. The man Spring loves seems to loathe her, family enemies are coming out of the woodwork, and her mother remains in a twenty-year stasis, waiting on ancient artifacts to revive her. When Spring’s uncle asks her to retrieve one of the final two objects, she jumps at the chance—until she finds out dear old Uncle Alastair has also recruited Knox Carlyle; the recent bane of her not-so-idyllic existence.

Knox Carlyle avoids Spring at all costs. Since the day she became an adult, she’s made it her mission to attract his notice. He refuses to allow himself to love her, believing his dark past eliminates any chance they have to be together. But with every look, every touch, his hard-won determination weakens.

With an army of Désorcelers determined to capture or kill witches at every turn, Knox is compelled to protect Spring from her own stubborn tendency to charge into trouble even if it means following her to South America to retrieve a powerful amulet. But when Knox fails to protect Spring, he is forced to go to extremes in order to save the only woman he’s ever loved.

Spring Magic is the fourth installment in the epic Thorne Witches series. Experience the magic today!

This year, things are different.
This year, Ariel’s got herself a whole new family, and they just so happen to be witches. Like her. And this year, they are making the best out of Halloween.
Unfortunately for Ariel, it’s not all fun and games for a witch on Halloween when she’s got seven boyfriends. Emotions run high, magic gets explored, and Ariel enjoys her first Halloween with her coven.

This is a Halloween Short Story for the Ariel Kimber Series. It’s also RH.

Goodreads

I received this book for an honest review.

This novella made my heart happy.  I absolutely love seeing Ariels relationship grow with each of the guys. This time it’s the Salt and Pepper twins.

Ariel and the guys got to experience Halloween for the first time. It was heartbreaking to find out there were some that never got to experience this holiday. It was heartwarming to see their excitement not only Ariel’s but the guys too. However, all that excitement came to a screeching halt when Able’s insecurities reared up its ugly head. I loved how Ariel handled things.

Did I say I loved how Ariel has a way of handling each of the brothers especially Quinton. This was a great short read. I am so excited to see what will happen next.

Heads up! By the time I have written this review, I have read this book twice.  Yes friends TWICE!!

So much happens in this book like our Pepper Twin feeling less than his brother.  Like our Salt Twin getting angry at his twin for upsetting their Pretty Girl annnnnd of course Quint being a dominant jackass…wait never mind I love him when he is dominant…ok an over stepping jackass because he forgets Ariel is in control of the 7 relationships…not him.

I love Quint for trying give Ariel good memories of all the holidays she missed as a child.  I also love that he goes over the top in creating these memories that generally make her wanna punch him in the face…LOL  But *Dreamy sigh* he is Quint the Coven Leader.  Taking care of his family is his job and he takes it very serious!

Abel is having an issue with missing Ariel but doesn’t know how to tell her because he feels less then the others including his brother.  The scene with Ariel and Abel fighting broke my heart because she loves him so much and he is just as insecure as she is with all this love stuff.

What scenes I loved the most : the guys feeling a bit freer to touch Ariel and them letting her know they are ready and willing for “more” *Wink* but the showdown with Dash, Quint and Ariel at the end of the book about how “ready” she is….a speechless Quinton is a rare thing!!!!

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

Hilarious quick read! If you need a pick me up then this is the book for you. Wicked has decided to move her relationship along with Thorne but overreacts when she sees something without an explanation. Her and Thorne are on the fritz but Bruce is there to back Wicked up. Bruce has got to be one of my favorite characters ever! LOL! Once things get calmed down as neither Wicked nor Thorne are ready to give up on each other they are faced with another bit of excitement! We get more background on Wicked and Thorne both and a wonderful ending to start another installment! Bring it on! Can’t wait!

Goodreads

BookBub

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.

GAH!!  What a great series starter for people who have not fallen in love with the series OR what a great addition to the series for people like ME who are addicted to the world!!

I loved loved loved getting a super quick glimpse into the beginning of the inter-mixed species Miranda created.  We are seeing Jerome and Suzanne meeting and then fall in love.  We see our yummy Mack as a sweet, innocent Cub before his story happens.

This is a very quick read for people, but you can see how Jerome and Sterling along with super-secret Leo formed the Black Mountain Pack.  We get to see all our favorite shifters before their books and mates appear.

I would have loved for this book to be a bit long because it is a very quick read but its still a great reminder of who we love and why we fell in love with them.

 

If you follow the Black Mountain Pack then you need to read this….if you don’t follow then you need this! The Black Mountain Pack series is an amazing read and we see how Jerome takes care of his inter-species pack but his book really shows the behind the scenes on how the pack was formed and the obstacles he was faced with. This is a super fast read but gives you the glimpse that you need into Jerome’s past and how he meets Suzanne and Mack….and how they stole Jerome’s heart. Again, because it is a fast read,  we get a glimpse into our favorite fox Sterling, the super secret Leo, as well as some of our other favorites and the witch covens. It’s the perfect novella to accompany the Black Mountain Pack series! Can’t wait for more!

#WOTR19 – #Review – Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by Teresa Gabelman

 

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5

On the run since the murder of her parents, time has come for Leda Kingsman to take her rightful place as pack leader. First she needs to fight for what was stolen from her and her little brother, Sam.

A shifter without a pack, Taz Whelan worked his way into the Lee County Wolves as a tracker. Always the loner, Taz never found anyone he wanted to spend more than five minutes with. That’s until stubborn Leda entered his world.

As Leda leaves the Lee County Wolves under false pretenses, Taz lets her go, a decision that haunts him. When he discovers the true reason and what she has been keeping from them all, nothing will stand in his way as he searches for her before the forbidden secrets she holds takes her from him forever.

 

Goodreads

 

Taz and Leda! One of my favorite couples! This story is full of suspense, drama and intense passion (sexual and non-sexual). This one hits home with me a bit as I see a lot of myself in Leda. She wants to do what is right, she believes it is her fight alone, and doesn’t ask anyone for help. She has become a strong woman and has decided it is time to avenge her family and help her family’s pack. The pack that is rightfully hers. As she goes out on this quest of hers she runs into a couple of familiar faces from her past. In the meantime while she is trying to get a plan together to go after her uncle, Taz has sought out Steve from the VC Warriors to help him find Leda. The dynamic between Taz and Steve is snarky and witty. These two are freaking hilarious! As the story unfolds we find out so much about Leda’s past and what has been recently going on with her family’s pack. We find out the truth about just how terrible and evil her uncle really is. She also finds out that blood doesn’t always mean family. She has Taz and Steve at her back as well as the Lee County Wolves and VC Warriors. I am so incredibly happy that Taz and Leda can address the chemistry between themselves. But Taz has to look out because when everyone else catches wind of him and Leda the guys all come forward to give him a hard time. And the dynamic between Taz and Sam is super heartwarming. By the end of the book Leda really understands what it is to have and be part of a true family. There are so many ups and downs in the story that you can’t help but keep turning the pages. I am looking forward to more of the Lee County Wolves!!

#WOTR19 – #Review – The Arbiter (Divinely Damned #1) by K.B. Everly and Brandy Slaven

#WOTR19 attending author BRANDY SLAVEN

 

The Arbiter (Divinely Damned, #1)

 

“She is too sinful to be Divine
and too righteous to be Damned.”
 

Nocturna; a hybrid, an all around smart ass, and the owner of The Apothecary, a night club for all the denizens that walk the earth to play amongst humans, is about to have her life altered by the Creator of all.

The last Arbiter has fallen and a new one must be chosen, one of both Divine and Damned blood. She will be both judge and executioner for the supernatural races, choosing how to punish or bless the souls brought before her.

Within her first week with her new status, Damned from all over are disappearing and disturbing videos of Damned being tortured and killed are surfacing. When Lord Monroe, one of The Infernal leaders of the Damned, becomes one of those who are missing, the Damned begin to point their fingers at The Rites; the Divine soldiers who are part of The Order of Abel. The clock is ticking, and it is her responsibility to find who is responsible and pass judgement. With the help of Enoch, an Infernal of the Damned, and Larkan, a Rite of the Order, Nocturna travels to Lord Monroe’s estate, hoping to find clues as to what happened to him and all the others.

Her integrity and her heart will be pushed and pulled in all directions as she faces the biggest dilemma of her existence; can she make the decision that is right for the lives of all, not the decision that is easiest for her. Will she stay true and lead the world into peace? Or will she choose sides like all the Arbiters before her and lead them all to destruction?

**This is a Reverse Harem Dark Romance that is recommended for ages 18+. There are elements of violence, such as torture and a body count, and steamy scenes that are sure to light you on fire. If you’re into that sort of thing, then boy do we have the book for you!

 

Goodreads

 

First, the cover of this book is amazing! Second, the premise of the story is incredible! Third, I can’t wait for the sequel!

 

“There’s always a fine line between everything. Love and hate. Cruelty and compassion. Pure and tainted. Light and dark. Most fail on either side of the spectrum within black or white, but none fall on that line that flows through the grey areas. No one is a perfect balance of all those things.”

 

This is what the Arbiter is supposed to be. Nocturna is a half breed. Half Divine and half Damned. There are very few halfies in the world and the Creator chooses one to be the Arbiter. The Arbiter is judge and jury over the Damned and Divine. Nocturna believes in a place that both beings can be themselves as long as nobody breaks the rules. She has created a sort of sanctuary for both within her club, The Apothecary. One eventful night and her world is rocked when she becomes the Arbiter. She finds that a past love and heartbreak, Enoch, is part of the Infernal who are the leaders of the Damned. She falls for Monroe, another leader of the Infernal. And has an incredible bond with Larkan, a Rite with the Divine. As they find out that Damned have been abducted and tortured they all find that they are part of the bigger picture and need to save these souls and stop the torturing. At the same time we are finding that not everyone on their team are loyal and their are traitors in the midst. Monroe ends up being captured, one of her dearest friends are abducted and her friend’s husband has been killed. Nocturna has to turn herself over to the bad guys in order to try and save the ones she love. And all the men in her life are going to be needed to keep her balanced between the Divine and the Damned.

 

This is a dark paranormal reverse harem story that is very intriguing. There is a lot going on within the big picture. It is dark and mysterious and is intense on the emotions evoked. It seemed to me like there was a lot of world building going on but some things were missed or rushed. Some of the characters were a little underdeveloped in my opinion. There was always just something out of reach. Overall though, I really enjoyed the story. There is a cliffhanger and I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to see how the story develops. It’s a wicked start to what I am sure will be an intense series!
