#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Homecoming Homicide ( Magical Bureau of Investigation 1) by Albany Walker

“Hey Frankie, we need ya.”

One phone call, five words, and I’m back in the town I swore I’d never return to.

Hill Crest Library smelled bad, and it wasn’t just the corpse in front of me causing it. The once beautiful building had fallen into disrepair over the past few years.

Belinda the new librarian was doing her best to clean it up, but a dead body wasn’t helping matters.

Dad needs help to solve the murder, so that’s what I’m here to do, then get out of town before anyone even knows I’m back

The case should be easy for an MBI agent, even a newly minted one like me, but before I can check into the hotel my three reasons for leaving, corner in the lobby.

My life just got a lot more complicated.

Homecoming Homicide is a Cozy style Slow Burn RH with an adorkable Heroine and Three not so normal Fellas thrown into the mix.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Life is good for MBI agent Frances Bishop, she’s an important member of the bureau. Then she got a phone call from her dad saying he needs her for a case back home, so she return home after she said she never to return. When the case gets crazy with a guys head basically exploded and magic lingering around but not able to pinpoint from where. Frances also has to worry about the 3 guys she ran from in the first place. This case goes from a normal mystery to the ultimate mystery. Sexual tension through the roof and 3 hot witches trying to keep their girl. Wow this book was amazing not gonna lie the title is what drew me in because I love a good mystery and homicide is right up my ally, I completely loved Frances and her fellas and I’m so ready for the next book.

Albany lives in Michigan where she’s happily married to her high school sweetheart. She spends most of her time juggling her four children’s extracurricular activities, with her nose stuck in a book. When not reading you can find her writing her very own book boyfriends. Albany’s passion is writing romance with real characters that are far from perfect, but always seem to find their own happily ever afters

#Review – Quantum Entanglement: Part One (Legion of Supernatural Academy Series Book 1) by S.R. Watson and Ryan Stacks

Quantum Entanglement: Part One (Legion of Supernatural Academy Series Book 1) by [S. R. Watson, Ryan Stacks]

There are no such things as witches, warlocks, vampires, and shapeshifters … or so we thought! Before everything changed three days ago, we would have agreed with you.

Three days ago, we didn’t have supernatural abilities we couldn’t explain.

Three days ago, we weren’t being hunted for these abilities.

Three days ago, we weren’t being rescued and recruited into a supernatural academy.

We were two strangers. Only two of our kind. What happens when other supernatural beings find out that we exist?

Genesis and Elysian are quantum entangled for a singular purpose. Their recruitment to the Legion of Supernatural Academy is unexpected but vital to the future of humanity. This unique series takes the world of supernatural academies to new heights with twisted tales, suspense-driven fantasy, and self-discovery.

Goodreads

Review by  Kelly

A unique twist on the supernatural! It can be difficult to shake things up a bit when it comes to the supernatural community…but yay! These two did it! There are vampires, werewolves, witches, oh my! But when Elysian and Genesis, seemingly normal random college students start having weird things happen around them out of the blue, things start to get crazy! There is a lot of self-discoveries for both of them. They are strangers but connected. How exactly does that happen? Fate? What they find is very mind boggling but what happens to each one as a result is downright scary, but exciting. As they are learning about themselves, each other, and making new friends….the crazy starts to come out. These two have a very intense pull because of this unknown connection, but what they don’t know is if it is predesigned or not. This causes a lot of hesitation for them. The romance portion of this starts as a slow burn but then the fireworks happen….and get ready to fan yourself because it gets HAWT!!! In the midst of all of this, they have become targets because of their powers. This erupts in a hellacious fight. But wait, there’s more! About the time that you think things may calm down, the authors add in a lovely, twisted ploy at the end that keeps you needing more. There are some typos that threw me off some and I wish the big fight scene had more detail or was drawn out more, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. Overall, this was a great book and I look forward to reading about Imogen and Rhys and seeing what shenanigans they bring!

Can this harpy complete her mission?

Harpy’s Mission is book one in the urban fantasy Supernatural Retrieval Agency Series, which includes a romantic m/f sub-plot.

Goodreads

Review by Kelly

I love all things supernatural and am a sucker for the lesser-known supernatural beings. With that being said, I was completely drawn in by the Harpy.  This is an action-packed quick read where the police force and the supernatural work together to take down the baddies. Harpies are a rare breed and there aren’t too many around. Once someone finds out what she is they always have something to say and want to see her shift. She is rather annoyed by this, but her wit and snark keep everyone on their toes. It’s Harper’s first day on the job and she is already going out on a job. Things go awry but they are able to obtain other information that take them to an even bigger crime ring. When things seem too easy, something is usually wrong. Well, the team soon finds the chink in the armor and things go crazy! I wish there was more back story for Harper and her boss, Elias (I am hoping for more in the next books). Some of the story felt a bit rushed. I do sense an underlying love story happening between Harper and Elias, so YAY! I love that a member of their team ended up being a cupid because we never hear about them in the supernatural community. This is a new author for me, but this story definitely has me intrigued.

#WOTR21 #KU #Review #SeriesStarter #Paranormal – Fashionable Dead, Hot Damned #1 by Robyn Peterman

Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)

Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist.

At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead?

Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator.

To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One.

Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I haven’t laughed this hard for a loooong time. I have to tell you/warn you to be ready for the hysterical outburst of laughter….like I freaking SNORTED I was laughing so hard. I even almost spit my sweet tea across the room at one point. So if I must “warn you about this book” please be careful not to choke and die during fits of giggles and laughter while reading.

So this book is about a typical girl who likes to shop…hello Prada. She has the gross habit of smoking. She decided to smoke a bunch til she puked and then get hypnotized so she wont smoke again. Well she goes and ends up becoming a vampyre instead. I have to stay the best parst of the novel are the beginning and meeting all the people who are sent to help Astrid. Her “angel ” Pam who is a foul mouthed doppelganger of Oprah. Her Warrior trained Fairy “The Kev” who looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger …….I was cracking up at the fact The Kev is fashionably challenged. Then we meet Paris Hilton the goth chick who doen’t own any hotel chains….The demons who Astrid cares for are names Ross, Rachel, Beyonce and Honest Abe. I have to say….hilarious!!!

Astrid is the chosen one who will save the Vamps from the demons. I will say the story has some awesome plot twisits. I would be laughing my ass off and then say “DAMN IT SHE DID IT AGAIN!!!” Robyn wrote an awesome story to any and all paranormal people. Astrid meets what she assumes is a rogue vampyre and vanishes before he can kill her. she later remeets this vampyre and realizes he is the prince who she is to save and protect being the chosen one….well the prince decided to take matters into his own hands and starts the mating cycle with a public bite……oooops Astrid is embarrassed that she “has a great O” while standing in front of 600 vamps….lol. The couple have a great chemistry. I loved the dynamic of the two main characters. I loved the side characters of Heathcliff and Gemma.

The chosen one is to save the king, vampyres, and friends from the demons and rogue vampyres…….

I really want to just write the whole plot here but if i do then you wont one click buy it so I am going to STOP and say….listen to me…buy it for a great story and a lot of laughter.

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.
A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable. You can follow Robyn at http://www.robynpeterman.com and at Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robyn-P….

#NewRelease #PNR – Dark Legacy by Betty Legend/Betty Shreffler

Dark Legacy

Nothing like falling for your sworn enemy and starting a war.

I live in a world where demons exist. I’ve been trained as a lethal weapon to hunt and kill in order to protect humans. That is until I met him—an incubus—an alluring, sensual, dream-weaving demon that ignites every fiber of my being and leaves me yearning for more of him. I shouldn’t want him. He’s the enemy, everything I’ve been trained to hate. Yet, there’s no fighting it, our desire is electric, the heat combustive.

What’s worse is…I want out. I want a life of my own without orders or the solitude of being a hunter. I want freedom. Only problem is, the organization I work for gives you two choices; obey orders or die.

I have other plans.

To get out, I dig into their secrets. The more I dig, the darker those secrets become. They’ll do whatever it takes to protect themselves and bury their problems.

In order to survive, I have to turn to the enemy. It’s in his passionate arms where I discover the truth and reclaim my freedom.

Together, we fight against a new enemy—the Arcane Society—and save more than just our lives…

If you like action-packed, paranormal, urban fantasies that feature a bad@ss heroine, a dangerous hero, and a steamy enemies-to-lovers romance, then this adventure is for you!

#ReleaseDay #DualReview #Paranormal – Moonlit Bond (Elements & Ancestors #2) by Britni Hill

Moonlit Bond (Elements & Ancestors #2)

Release Date: August 31st

What’s a girl to do when she’s pulled from her bed in the middle of the night and put in a magical coma?

 My life is boring. Just the way I like it. I happily run my flower shop and keep to myself when I’m not hanging out with my closest friends. Until I’m ripped from my bed and held against my will.

Desperate to find a way home, I tap into powers I’ve never used before and lucky for me my good friend, Sierra Cruz, comes to my rescue.

All I want is to go back to my life.

Too bad that doesn’t seem possible. Because I’m the last remaining Warren witch, and I have an entire ancestral line of power stored inside me. Magic that someone wants to steal. Magic I can’t even use myself.

Even better, my powers have been going crazy since I met Owen Whitford. That can only mean one thing. Something I refuse to acknowledge. I need his help, even if I won’t admit it, to stop what’s coming.

As soon as we figure out what that is.

Book 2 is $ 2.99.

Moonlit Sight (Elements & Ancestors book #1)

Moonlit Sight Blurb: What’s a girl to do when she loses her job, her best friend goes missing, and she starts to see, hear and feel things that aren’t there?

Moonlight Grove is a small, peaceful town full of familiar faces. It’s perfect. Until my best friend, Lucy Warren, goes missing.

Enter Simon Caldwell.

The man is attractive. A bit mysterious, and a new face in my sleepy little town. He’s a paranormal investigator who’s come to Moonlight Grove looking into reports of the supernatural kind. It all sounds like good TV to me. When I begin experiencing things I can’t explain, he may be the only one who can help.

Maybe there’s more to Lucy than meets the eye. What if her disappearance is linked to all the crazy things happening?

With Simon’s help, I’m determined to find her and to ignore the way he makes me feel while I do it.

Moonlit Bond (Elements & Ancestors #2) by Britni Hill

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

I was super excited to get the next installment of the Warren Witches.  We get to continue from book 1 where we see Lucy getting taken.  We also get to see Owen for the first time annnnd yeah, he is kinda a dick initially.  LOL

I loved seeing Lucy and Owen steam up with their attraction but also seeing them try to figure out why people are after her.  Aurora was another great character, and I can’t wait for her book. But I loved reconnecting with Sierra and Simon who are still main characters in Lucy’s story.

We are learning more about Lucy, her familiars, her abilities, and why she is being targeted.  The ending was more of a cliffhanger for more to come like that last book.  I loved the final page where she is like Welp this is happening….It’s kinda how things seems to go for Lucy.  I know here rag tag team of friends will be there in book 3 to help her win this coming war that is set for their small town.

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

I was so ready to get the second book of Elements & Ancestors.  This book is about Lucy Warren. She is the last of the family witches. She was living life like anyone would until that night she was taken. We are taken on a journey to figure out what happened to her and who took her.

Lucy is back thanks to her BFF Sierra.  She is ready to have things go back to normal.  Lucy meets Owen who is buying some of her family property.  Her magic is starting to go wacky is it because of Owen or due to the reason she was take.

Lucy cannot stand Owen because let’s face it he was a jerk the first time they came face to face. After Lucy, Sierra, Simon, Aurora, and Owen begin to dig into what happened to Lucy Owen started to thaw. I loved seeing Lucy and Owen connection grow and how Lucy’s familiars calmed her and guided her to things.

The journey that we go on here is crazy I wanted to close my eyes at some points in the book.  Really the places we were drawn to and people we were introduced to had me cringing.  This one leaves us on a cliff and I’m so ready for the third book to see where we are headed next.

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

DJ……MMMMM yes!!!  I have been waiting for you baby!!!  I wanted to know why you have such darkness in your soul. You back story did not disappoint at alllllll.

Kymber….girl you need a damn hug.  When you fall for the wrong man, it makes everything terrible but, in your case, it puts your life in jeopardy.

Ricardo, dude…you are not every going to be good enough for Kymber or man enough to defeat DJ.  Just saying.  I guess the lessons your daddy taught you, you should have paid better attention too!!

This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat because it was so well written!!  I mean DJ being able to control himself when he sees the monster Ricardo is but also keep his beast at bay….yes please….he is a great character.

Kymber has my heart in knots.  I mean gahhhhh we knew why she did what she did was to protect herself and DJ but guuuurlllll give that man your heart!!

When the dramatic twist happens and Kymber is in danger, I was seriously so glad that DJs people were there to help him . He needs to find Kymber before the fates take her from him!!!

Guys this book…gah I loved it.  I loved seeing DJ tell his story and I LOVED the reaction because I was even like DAYUM!!!!!!!!!!
