#Review – Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3) by Ava Cuvay

Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3)

 

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amidst murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?
Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?

“Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy” is Book 3 in The Heart Nebula Series. Like it’s interstellar namesake, The Heart Nebula Series is a loosely-connected cluster of stand-alone Romantic Sci-fi stories with sassy heroines, gutsy heroes, passion and adventures set in a galaxy far, far away. In essence, it’s the stuff of stars.

We have all been at a point in our life where we just need to get away from it all. Kaz decides to go to a popular destination-planet to relax and unwind. This place just sucks! Literally and figuratively. She is at a spring break type of place and she is kidnapped and taken to the other side of the planet that no one goes to just for fun. She is placed in the dungeon and is fed on by a monster. She is finally freed by King Rune and his way of apologizing is to have her spend her vacation at his palace. Rune has been brought back to life after 1000 years of being gone to find that his home has been run into the ground. He has yet to figure out exactly why he has been brought back and is struggling a lot with getting the monarchy back under control, dealing with murders in the palace, falling for Kaz and the fact that he is hiding exactly who he is to her. With all of this going on, Kaz is being herself, everyone loves her, and she is falling in love with Rune. The two of them have a lot of inner conflict within themselves and are so different from the other. But opposites attract and the two of the complement each other so well. The only thing is that they both have to be honest with each other and once the honesty is let out will they be able to be together? There is a ton of craziness happening at the palace when Rune hosts a ball of sorts. There is a death and kidnapping. Kaz finds herself in the middle of another mess and when the bad guy is figured out…..well lets just say oh holy hell because I so didn’t see this coming. I knew there was something fishy going on but when the twist unravels, it’s epic!!!! Blood King pulls you into the story and is the type of story that will constantly have you trying to guess what the hell is going on. And when the bread crumbs finally fell into place I was speechless! The sexy king will have you rooting for him and seeing how Kaz’s wittiness and no nonsense attitude brings him out of his shell will make you fall in love with this story. Well done, Ava Cuvay! Bravo!!!!

#Review – Refrain: A Vampire Blood Courtesan Romance by Susan Griscom

Refrain: A Vampire Blood Courtesan Romance

 

One fateful night changed my life forever and brought secrets to light I never could have imagined, leaving me parentless, penniless, and caring for an ailing sister. My father was not the man I thought I knew, and his greed and sickness have left me with virtually nothing to use to care for my sister and get her the treatments she needs to maybe one day walk again. And now, we might lose our house, as well.

Luckily, an ad in the paper helps me regain some hope. I have something to barter with that not many courtesans have, after all, and it just might be enough to earn what’s needed to secure my future as a successful Blood Courtesan. My first client turns out to be the man of my dreams, the sexy-as-sin vampire rock star I’ve lusted after since I was a teen, but he wants nothing to do with me or what I have to offer.

My father’s misdeeds continue to haunt me and I’m left with only one option: I need to make the talented and headstrong Lyric Rivers desire me, or lose everything. Maybe even my life.

The Blood Courtesans Series, where vampires are real, rich, powerful–and hungry.
Blood is bought and sold like fine wine, and the best blood goes to the highest bidder.

It’s not supposed to be about love … until it is.

Originally published in the Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings.

 

Goodreads

 

Vampires! Yes! It’s so hard to take a vampire story and make it unique. I often find that there is a lot of monotony with them. But this is hardly the case for the Blood Courtesans. In this world vampires are real and out in the open. They are normal people like you and me but they drink blood…maybe they are not what you consider completely normal, lol! Neriza is our female lead in Refrain. She lost her parents in a horrible car accident and this accident has left her sister paralyzed. Neriza is the sole provider for herself and her sister along with taking care of her parent’s debt. She decides to apply to be a Blood Courtesan. She tries to do this quietly as her uncle doesn’t agree with vampires paying for blood. Basically she gets rented for sex and blood. She has a unique quality about her that makes her a bit more valuable and she is accepted right away. She is essentially “rented” by Lyric (through his assistant) so that she can go on tour with the band and keep him sustained. Lyric happens to be the lead singer of the band Crimson Rivers, also her childhood crush, also a total hottie with an accent! He wants her gone and gone ASAP! She can’t figure out why so she puts all of her effort into getting him to keep her so that she is not in trouble with the Madame at the agency. As these two are learning to work together she gets some terrible news and finds that her dad was in the middle of some shady dealings, and here is where the real fun begins. Neriza and Lyric do form a friendship and confide in each other about their pasts. As things heat up both of their pasts come to the present and we find that the world may not be as large as we all thought. I can’t give you ANY more of the story without giving away tons of spoilers. The intensity between Lyric and Neriza with the witty banter is enough to make you want to read the book. But all the crazy twists in between are what makes this story amazing!

#WOTR18 – #Review – Bearly Safe (Texan Bears Book 1) by Anya Breton

 

Bearly Safe (Texan Bears Book 1)

 

Attending a co-worker’s Halloween party dressed as a sexy fairy was the worst decision Shelby Maxwell made all week. That is until she lets her temper get the best of her in front of Dallas’s finest and ends up in the back of a police cruiser. Too bad the gorgeous jerk responsible for her bad behavior didn’t have the sense to avoid the police, himself.

When someone shoots up the party, the gorgeous jerk, Nick Kang, sprouts fur, explodes out of the police cruiser, and saves the day. Nick’s jerk streak continues as he leaves Shelby to explain what happened.

After her name is released to the press, a penitent Nick arrives to protect Shelby from the killer’s mafia associates. Close quarter guarding leads to close quarter groping and a little more intimacy than Shelby is prepared for. But it may be time to put her past behind her and accept far more than the safety Nick offers.

 

Goodreads

 

Holy fury hotness! I am a shifter fanatic but have never read about were-bears!  And guess what? I love them too! Shelby’s and Nick’s chemistry is intense. Palpable. You can freaking touch the angst, the sarcasm, the innuendos…..You will feel like you are Shelby! The love hate relationship she has with Nick is freaking HILARIOUS! And the way his cockiness seems to get in the way of absolutely every single conversation they have will have you wanting more! Shelby ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets a first hand look at shifter Nick. She is brought in for questioning after a shooting but can’t divulge all the details. As a hit is put on her Nick takes it upon himself to protect her. He is every bit a butt-head and tells her this first hand but they need each other. There is a push/pull between them that keeps this story rocking. It is full of action and suspense and is an absolute page turner but the witty banter is what is going to keep you on your toes constantly turning those pages to see what else can happen next. Her loudmouthed face will strike again! I absolutely love this bear pack and cannot wait to see what else is in store for us. To the author, you had me in stitches, squirming and tapping my toes!!!!!!! Love it!

#WOTR – #Review – Claiming Jade by Teresa Gabelman

Claiming Jade

 

Jade Wilder finds herself standing in the office of Elite Crime Unit because pixies are after her brother. Yes, you heard right. Pixies! Mean, ruthless, evil pixies. Her house has been ransacked, her brother is now missing, and she needs help.

As Jade’s story unfolds, dark elf and badass, Drake, can’t deny the danger she is in or his instant attraction to the beautiful green-eyed human. He appoints himself her protector and soon realizes that walking away from her once the job is done will be next to impossible.

 

Goodreads

 

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Claiming Jade is fantasy brought to life! Claiming Jade? How about I am claiming Drake! Haha! This is one of those insta-love type stories but the way these two push and pull at each other is hilarious! I love how the author can give us a great storyline but add the wit and charm that will make me smile throughout the whole story.

 

For Jade it was incredibly difficult to ask for help from the paranormal community. But when she does I don’t think she expected that she was in as much danger as she actually is. Now she has Drake to deal with. He is an incredibly fierce half elf that has an intense attraction to Jade that she is more than happy to reciprocate. Reading along and seeing how Drakes comrades all interact with him and how he can be a big softy is super sweet. This is a fast paced story with lots of ups and downs… but absolutely, never a dull moment! If you want something to lift your spirits, make you smile, get a little hot and action packed, then Claiming Jade is a great read!

Refuge (Stone's Wolf Sanctuary) Book #2

 

Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.

After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.

While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.

 

Goodreads

 

Cole and Leeza! Love these two! Both of these characters are incredibly strong people. Leeza helping the pack adjust to Eric, the new Alpha, after her brother dies is amazing and Cole, being Eric’s younger brother but with Alpha tendencies, is hot! After a terrible attack where one of the pack members is raped the pack has overwhelming feelings of more or less being worthless since they weren’t able to protect one of their own. As some misunderstandings are dealt with we get to see more into Leeza’s and Cole’s emotions for one another. Leeza is not looking for an alpha and Cole is totally alpha. Trying to adjust to these different emotions between the two is intense as they are both dealing with their own demons. Some tragedies come at a price but seeing how the pack comes together to protect their own is super inspiring. When push comes to shove we find out what everyone’s true colors are. The story will suck you in and keep a hold of you right to the very end. I am sooooo looking forward to the next!

#WOTR18 #Review – Conquered By the Alien Prince: An Alien Sci-Fi Romance (Luminar Masters #1) by Rebel West

Alexis Alverez writing as Rebel West

Conquered By the Alien Prince: An Alien Sci-Fi Romance (Luminar Masters, #1)

 

A filthy rich, ripped alpha who also happens to be royalty? Yes, please.
Only problem? He’s an alien.

When a confidential mission sends Doctor Cali Taylor to Luminar, her project is thrown in jeopardy and more than one life, including her own, is at risk.

The one constant? The alien prince and a scorching interplanetary rendezvous. But can their budding romance withstand the danger that threatens to tear them apart?

Enjoy the first book in the Luminar Masters Series by Rebel West. The books are interconnected and can be read in any order. Guaranteed HEA and no cheating!

Note: This book contains elements of dominance, submission, BDSM elements including corporal punishments. If this material offends you, please do not buy this book.

 

Goodreads

 

Hot Sci-Fi anyone? Yes please! This is the first Rebel West book for me but definitely won’t be the last. In the description of the book it says that it contains elements of dominance, submission and BDSM. These things are generally not at the top of my “to read” list….now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a hot read and this book is way more than that! The back story of both planets, the world building and the amazing characters that are brought to life through the author, Rebel West, are intoxicating. It’s the perfect mix of hotness and suspense! Cali is from Earth and gets to travel to Luminar on a top secret mission, but doesn’t know what the mission entails until she arrives to Luminar. She has some very strict restrictions with whom she can talk to and where she can go, for safety reasons. Cali is then presented with her delegate for her stay there and it is none other than Lock, the hot as hell prince who she has dreamed about. As they are alien to each other they both try to restrain themselves, but oops, sometimes things don’t go as planned *wags eyebrows*. Cali is set on a task to save Maxxon, Lock’s brother and ruler of their world, as he is very sick. As Cali discovers more about herself and Luminar she is discovering that things aren’t always as they seem. As she gets close to discovering more about the illness things go awry. Let me tell you, this book has a little bit of everything. And did I mention a terribly sexy alien prince??? The trials that these two face being from different planets (literally) and trying to get to the bottom of the Maxxon’s illness will keep you turning pages until the very end. I am looking forward to checking out more of Rebel West’s stories!

#Review – Hunter (Standalone in A Vampire’s Thirst #8) by Bella Roccaforte

Hunter (A Vampire's Thirst #8)

 

A Vampire’s Thirst: Dark, Dangerous and Undeniable. A stand-alone HEA

Hunter Webb, an ancient Viking Vampire wants one thing: to be with his one true love…an impossibility seeing as he is refused entry to Valhalla for being a Vampire. Instead he’s dedicated his life to finding a “cure” for vampirism so that he may die in battle as a human and feast in the hall among the gods and find the other half of his heart.

While working in the lab he is struck down by a mysterious illness that shakes the very foundation of his entire existence. The desire to feed ALL of his urges drives him to the edge of insanity. After thousands of years of control, his craving for warm blood and hot sex take over all of his reason…until a tiny vial of blood changes everything. One taste and he remembers what it’s like to feel, hope and live again.

Now he must find the owner of the blood or they will both be in grave danger. Will Hunter find his bloodmate before they both lose themselves to the Thirst?

The hunt is on, the battle fierce…only the strong survive a Vampire’s Thirst.

 

Goodreads

 

Ok, here is ALL you need to know about this book. It’s A MUST READ! I have to tell you that sometimes books with insta-love push me the wrong way. Sometimes it feels that two people (or vampires, shifters, etc) see each other and boom….they are having their way with each other the entire book. NOT THIS ONE! Hunter and Rook are the love interests in this story. Hunter was a Viking from the old world who found his true love. He is now a vampire and has lived many, many years without his love. He is constantly researching a cure for vampirism. He wants to go down in battle with a win and be with his one true love again. We also meet Rook. She left her small town to go to New Orleans. She never really felt that she belonged back home. She can’t be scented by supernaturals and is found to be an asset on gaining information for the Directive. The Directive basically polices the supernatural community and things are going down. Rook is in trouble and everyone warns her to leave the area. While Hunter is diligently working on a cure he finds that he can’t satiate this hunger and the intense sex drive he has and starts feeling like he is going crazy. This is as much of a book report that I can give you, haha! The back story and the additional characters that are in this particular story give it a ton of depth with the characters that really make you want to root for the insta-love that these stories bring. By the time these two finally find each other there is so much intensity building that when they do meet, their worlds collide with a bang! And then their intricate web continues to be woven.  These two are one of my new favorite book couples. I can only imagine what kind of shenanigans they got into before they meet or even further past this book. Loving me some Hunter and Rook!!

#WOTR – #Review – Curse of the Raven (The Union Series #5) Shawn Reilly

 

Curse of the Raven (The Union Series #5)

 

In the wake of the battle with the Gothi, Elle is struggling. Insecurity and chaos have taken a toll on her, and her heart longs for just a few moments of uninterrupted peace with the man she loves. When, once again, the Lakes are faced with even more trials and tribulations, she comes to the realization that in her own despair—completely unaware of doing so, she has left her man in doubt. And yet, even when she resolves to assure him of her feelings she fears her ex-boyfriend’s memories, which are stuck in his head, may rise to the surface.
Asher Lake sets out on a mission to find his predecessor Grant—who exists in his wolf form in the woods of Brokenridge, all the while knowing that there is no answer to the Raven’s curse on his own life—at least none he will accept. Knowing that his end is imminent he resigns to fate. The only thing he has to do in the meantime—other than continuing to strengthen his position as leader to the Union and keeping his family in line, is convince the woman he’s willing to sacrifice everything for of just how much he cares. However, even when his adversaries continue to haunt him and more and more questions rise up to torment him, his true quandary lies in this—knowing just how to go about popping the question…again.

 

Goodreads

 

I can’t get enough of the Union Series!!! All the trials and tribulations, twists and turns, and most importantly the stolen moments while living life to the fullest really sets this series apart from others. This is book 5 in this series and it continues to grow with new characters and crazy plot twists. I am not sure how the author dreamt this stuff up but the series has kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning and this installment holds true. The entire story is told from all of the characters points of view. Some people don’t care for this but the author does it in a way that we know what each character is feeling and what each one is going through. The characters are so real that you can’t help but want to help them fight or give them a hug when they are down. They continue to fight the good fight but continue to uncover new secrets that always put a kink in things. I feel like they are getting sooooooo close to Grant (they have even talked to him!!!) and trying to get the curse put to rest.  Asher is taking the time to get closer to Elle and trying to get some alone time but some of those moments continue to get stolen with all the chaos that comes with being Keeper. I am worried for Asher though as I sometimes get the feeling that he is done fighting but at other times I know he won’t give up. He is a tough cookie to figure out sometimes, but hey, that’s why I love him, haha! I thoroughly enjoy how this story ends but I am sitting on pins and needles to start reading book 6. My only hope is that by the time I am finished with 6 that 7 will be out. Crossing fingers!!!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired schoolteacher took me under her wing. After some tutoring and testing, she informed my parents that the reason I was having trouble in school wasn’t that I was dumb but instead dyslexic. When my stepfather heard this, he decided to take me to a used bookstore with the belief that the best way to improve my reading skills was to read. Some of the books were hard to get through at first, but with his encouragement, I refused to give up. We made many trips to that bookstore, and I especially loved the science fiction and fantasy sections. Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, my stepfather told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did.

My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun-slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.

Shawn Reilly lives in Mt. Comfort Indiana. She has three beautiful and talented daughters, one very loving and supportive husband, and an overweight American Pitt Bull Terrier named Noah. When she’s not writing she’s spending time with her family, boating and fishing, and attending signings. She is the author of The Union series and The Children of the Alliance Trilogy. She supports those with Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and animal rescue.

#Review – Wet Kisses: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance: Pisces by Susan Griscom

Wet Kisses: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance: Pisces (The Sectorium Book 5)

 

Adrian Marlowe is a dolphin-shifter who can shift into a dragon, a new and dangerous development to his shifter abilities. Now he’s gone from wealthy CEO to man on a mission: Figure out how to tame the dragon before it destroys him.

Landing the job as the new project manager in charge of the interior design of Waterscape’s new underwater hotel is Reese Briden’s dream job come true. Until she meets the sexy CEO and escaping the sexual tension that arises between them becomes impossible. Adrian could be the perfect lover. Except for one flaw. Well, maybe it’s not really a flaw, more of an inconvenience, because he is her boss.

Reese is feisty, beautiful and confident, and she might even be Adrian’s mate, except…she doesn’t know about the dragon. Now he has to decide whether to reveal himself or risk losing both her and his corporation. However, he just might lose himself if he lets the dragon consume him.

 

Goodreads

 

**This book can be read as a stand-alone**

 

This is book five in the series but I read it as a stand-alone. A very hot and steamy stand-alone with a setting in Hawaii…did I mention that there is a dolphin/dragon shifter? From myths, mates, bad guys, and prophecies, Adrian’s and Reese’s story have it all and in a more than perfect setting. Reese moves to Hawaii for work and ends up working for this amazingly hot surfer guy, Adrian. Reese is very adamant about not mixing business and pleasure and tries to keep boundaries. Adrian just needs to convince her that he truly likes her and not because she works for him. They are working on an incredible project when Victor (yup, the bad guy) comes popping his nose into business where it doesn’t belong. You know there is history between Victor and Adrian and the tension is thick when they interact. And our girl, Reese, gets stuck right in the middle. Adrian and Reese both have abilities and work hard at keeping them very secret but eventually walls are broken down and they slowly put the pieces together. There is some past that could keep them apart and along with Victor in the mix…well, lets just say the story didn’t end quite like I thought it was going to. Just sayin…big plot twist that is worth holding on to the end for. Love me some Wet Kisses!!

CHANCE (Cyn City Cyborgs Book 1)

 

Cyn City is crumbling beneath the weight of water and wealth. Old New York is drowning, while Cyn City is building right over it’s crumbling bones. Ocean swells threaten the massive wall holding back the tides, In the skycity transhumanism means implants and virtual reality, but down in the lower depths where rats and mold rule, cyborgs are a hackjob of nuts and bolts, cynked together for strength, not beauty.

Chance has fought his entire life, first for survival in the streets of Cyn City and later for money and prestige in the underground Cyborg Fight League. After losing the love of his life to Rhumitisin, he never thought he’d find love again. Death closes in fast in the Cyborg Slums, and Chance doesn’t even care until he meets a woman who can see past the metal arm on his left side.

Verity has left behind everything she knows to start a new life in Cyn City. But her Ecovangalit upbringing has left her unprepared for the hard realities of life amongst the Cyborgs. When a dangerous man everyone tells her to stay away from proves to be the only person she can trust, can she lower her walls enough to let him in?

When Verity finds herself in debt to the wrong kind of man who will sell her body as fast as he will sell her soul, Chance is the only one who can clear her ledger, but only if he’ll fight in the Cyborg Fight Circuit again, which means killing for the woman he just might love enough to risk his life for.

Oh holy hawtness! “Temptation, thy name is cyborg”. Chance is that cyborg. Chance was a normal man and sacrificed himself for the woman he loved. But now she is gone. Chance didn’t have a chance for a long time and was very angry. He in turn made a name for himself on the Cyborg Fight Circuit. Since then he has stopped fighting and mainly organizes and collects on the fights. Being that we are in Cyn City there is always someone that runs thinsg and people to be paid off. Verity comes from a commune where the men can take several wives and if they aren’t wanted the women are sent off for other jobs. Verity can’t take it and runs away to Cyn City. She ends up getting a waitress job at the Ball & Joint, also where Chance works. She is spunky and strong but doesn’t know the ins and outs of Cyn City. For some reason Chance can’t keep from watching her. When she pushes off the advances of a handsy drunk cyborg she ends up in a bad situation and Chance comes to the rescue but not until after she takes care of most of it herself. At this point Verity just ends up being a magnet for trouble. She goes to her boss and ends up owing him more than she bargained for. All in the midst of the madness her friend from the commune ends up on her doorstep banged up and bruised up. Chance is their only chance for survival and both of their lives and souls are on the line. Verity can’t imagine that someone like Chance, who everyone told her to stay away from because he is dangerous, would want to be with her. Chance can’t imagine that someone like Verity, so pure and whole, would be able to want Chance and not be turned away from him being a cyborg. This is sort of like a Beauty and the Beast without the hostage type situation, lol! Cyn City is a helluva place and totally deserves everyone’s attention. If you haven’t read Hollywood you should check it out too. It’s the prequel to this story and at the end of Chance we are set up for the next story perfectly. Love me some Cyn City!!!!
