#CoverReveal – Ignite the Flame by Susan Griscom

Title: Ignite the Flame
Author: Susan Griscom
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
He can take her anywhere her heart desires, but she can bring him to his knees with the gentle flick of her finger.
When the tragic death of her father brings Addison MacKenna back to the town where she was born, she can’t understand the strange sensations that have begun to consume her. Plagued with nightmares of her father’s sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe that his demise was accidental.
But that’s not the only thing Addie struggles with.
Caught up in the horrors of her latest nightmare while driving to work one day, she’s startled beyond comprehension when she almost runs down a man standing in the middle of the road. A gorgeous, stunning man she can’t seem to take her mind or her eyes off of. All of a sudden, the impossible seems possible, and it’s not clear whether that’s a blessing or a curse.
Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious, but he’s also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. He’s faced with the tough decision of whether to let her in or sabotage their new relationship in order to keep her safe as well as his own heart.
Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them in the end?
This book is NOT a typical paranormal romance with vampires or alpha dogs. However, it is full of magical abilities from shape-shifting to healing powers as well as teleporting, and it is a sexy, steamy romance with intimate scenes and adult situations.

#Review – Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance by Bella Roccaforte

Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance

 

The Beta of Blackhawk Pack, Mako would sacrifice virtually everything for his pack, including his life. But when a beautiful mage arrives to stand in as healer in the aftermath of near destruction of the pack, Mako is suddenly struck by the Hunger.

When Robin comes to the Blackhawk Pack, the last thing she expects is the Beta of the pack to claim her as his mate, something she has no time for. Her mission is to find and exact revenge on the anti-mage who killed her grandmother.

Robin and Mako fight their Hunger-fueled, primal attraction tooth and nail, while looking for answers and retribution in the midst of great danger for them and the pack.

Will Mako succumb to the legendary Wolf’s Hunger? And will Robin surrender to his mating call that’s becoming impossible to resist?

****
From New York Time’s Bestselling Author A.K. Michaels
A Wolf’s Hunger is a series of standalone Shifter books each with a HEA and absolutely no cliffhangers.
Full of passion, intrigue and Paranormal Romance. Jam packed full of suspense, romance, thrills and hot Shifters.

 

Goodreads

 

The plans we have for our life and what fate has in store for us never seem the same. Love me some Mako! The pack is in the middle of a terrible situation and they are being selective in who they trust with and within their pack. Robin, a mage, pops in unexpectedly and announces that she is their new interim healer. Mako starts in with the hunger and has no idea what this new feeling is. He has found his once in a lifetime mate. The pack was burnt by their previous healer/witch so they are skeptical of Robin. Robin, being the mage that she is and growing up in a pack, doesn’t trust the wolves. Mako and Robin fight the attraction but in the midst of this there is a traitor and the pack is being attacked. This is where I leave you with what the story is about. The push and pull between Mako and Robin is unmistakably hot and romantic. This author can take these incredible characters and pull you into their world while making you feel every iota of their rage and hate, passion and love. I was sucked in from the very beginning and could not put it down. Love, love, love me some Mako!

**This is a stand alone but I recommend reading Saint first as Mako picks up right where Saint leaves off. I believe that if you read Saint first some of the backstory will have more meaning for you. **

#NewRelease – The Vilka’s Servant: Scifi Alien Romance (Shifters of Kladuu #1) by Pearl Foxx

The Vilka's Servant: Scifi Alien Romance (Shifters of Kladuu Book 1)

 

Kladuu is a planet full of shape-shifting clans.

It’s also the best-kept secret from the clans’ greatest enemy: Humans.

Vera is the sole female engineer in her department aboard the Zynthar International Space Station. Fighting against sexist prejudices is the only battle Vera has known until a band of rogue aliens attack the space station, taking her and a group of women hostage. It’s a battle between life and death when Vera and the women are forced into servitude on an unknown planet full of shape-shifting alien wolves called Vilkas. Vera will do anything to escape, but the Vilka she works for is protective and loyal … and far too attractive.

Rayner is Beta of Clan Vilka on Kladuu. It’s a position he puts before all other aspects of his life, including love. But the more he gets to know his beautiful human servant, the more he recognizes the flaws in his clan’s way of life. Amidst the stirrings of a servant uprising, another serious threat lurks in the shadows, waiting to destroy all Rayner holds dear—including Vera.

When Rayner’s duties to his clan and his Alpha fall in direct opposition to protecting Vera—to protecting his mate—he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Even if the cost is betraying his people.

Even if the cost is his life.

#Review – Saint (A Wolf’s Hunger #6) (Standalone) by Bella Roccaforte

35212640

 

Saint has always been the good wolf, until the hunger strikes.

To be the Pack Alpha is the greatest honor a wolf can receive, but also the greatest responsibility. Saint always put the law and the pack before himself, but when a mysterious woman arrives in town and his hunger becomes insatiable, all hell breaks loose.

Scarlet never fit in anywhere. Born without her wolf, she was sent away at birth for being a bad omen. Her bright red eyes were a dead giveaway that she wasn’t human either. After twenty-five years living as an outsider, her mother brings her home; there’s still no place for Scarlet among the pack, and she tries to go on the run…again.

Though an inexplicable force keeps Scarlet from leaving, is it her wolf? Or the handsome young Alpha she meets on the road?

Saint has found his mate, but will Scarlet find her wolf in time to save Saint from losing himself to his wolf forever?

Book 1 in New York Times Bestselling Author, A K Michaels’ new Shifter series full of passion, intrigue and Paranormal Romance. All are standalones with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Jam packed full of suspense, romance, thrills and hot Shifters.

 

Goodreads

 

Oh, the feels! A big bad Alpha with a strong female….SWOON! Saint is next in line to be Alpha. All of a sudden he feels something brewing in him. His wolf is a little out of control and is never satisfied. One night while in wolf form he comes across Scarlet. Scarlet is from this pack but was taken away as a baby because she was born without her wolf. Being born without your wolf is a bad omen for packs, or so they say. There is an intense attraction between these two with a romance that blossoms quickly but so pure. As they are trying to find her wolf, things get crazy. Rogue wolves and wicked witches. What more could you ask for? This story has it all. I fell in love with Saint and Scarlet as well as the side characters. The book is a standalone but has so much potential for more. I hope these other characters get to come out and play!

#Review #NewRelease – Firebloods by Casey Hays

35050933

 

Jude Gallagher thought she was crazy.

It all started when the boy next door made her hear music—inside her head. All the time.

It was torture.

She didn’t think things could get worse. But then one hot summer, her best friend Kane O’Reilly decides to tell her how he really feels about her. Music inside her head? That’s nothing compared what happens next.

Things only turn stranger when she and her lab partner Frankie Melmack begin a project to prove the existence of the Vatra u Krvi—a race of people tied to the mythical Phoenix. Add in a neglectful mother and a magic ring, and the insanity that defines Jude’s life is pretty well complete.

Heat surges across the Nevada desert, and the best and worst parts of Jude Gallagher’s life collide as myth meets reality. In the middle of the chaos, she begins to hear more than just music. And she has to wonder…

Maybe… just maybe… she really is crazy after all.

 

Goodreads

 

Absolutely love Firebloods!!!!! Such and intense story! It’s so captivating. I never got bored and was constantly trying to find the angle.

Jude has always felt a little off. A little crazy, but she has dealt with it. She is living and doing it the best she knows how. She has four best friends, two of which are guys. She has been best friends with the guys since they were very small. She has an undeniable attraction to Kane, and he with her, but she is adamant about it not going any further than friends as she does not want to ruin her friendship. Jude is working on a science project with her other friend, Frankie. The girls are looking into the existence of Firebloods. This is a race of people that have been injected with the blood of the mythical Phoenix. As the project continues and more secrets are uncovered she finds that a lot of things aren’t always as they seem. One secret is uncovered but more questions keep arising.

These characters are awesome! They are normal, everyday teenagers who are always into shenanigans. They are super easy to relate to and I see a little of myself in all of them. Firebloods is a completely different story than anything I have read before. I love this spin on the mythical story of the Phoenix. This is the “keep you on the edge of your seat” type of story. The story is full of twists and turns, trust and secrets, love and lies. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL!

#Review #NewRelease – Possessed by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco #4) by Susan Griscom

34938361

 

They possess the power to make their dreams come true—but it won’t be easy.

Preston Knight—Elvis to his friends—loves being a vampire. The night he was turned was the first step to him becoming the kind of man he always hoped to be. Now, he’s a rock star. What could be better? But the one thing that would make his world complete is just out of reach. The woman he yearns for has some serious secrets, and despite him knowing that she wants him just as much as he wants her, she won’t let him in.

Lily Grey never asked to be a vampire. The choice was taken from her eons ago, and things never improved. Now, she finds herself peddling drugs on the streets of San Francisco and playing the part of doting wife to a possessive and sadistic vampire with delusions of grandeur. But family means everything to Lily, and she’s willing to sacrifice everything for it…even her one chance at happiness with the sexy-as-sin vampire who sets her heart ablaze.

When one night of passion opens the door for a century of secrets to be revealed, Lily and Preston must fight for not only what they believe in but also what they love.

 

Goodreads

 

Whoa! What a wild ride and with a wicked twist!

This is Preston’s, AKA Elvis, story. He has finally found someone that intrigues him enough to keep him from running around anymore. He has found Lily, another vampire, but she has secrets galore. They always meet in the seedy part of town and hang out at the club, I.V. They are falling for each other hard and fast. Preston doesn’t understand why she won’t take the next step. He finally starts to break Lily’s walls down by giving her a piece of him. She learns about how he was turned. Preston becoming a vampire was one of the best things that happened to him. However, for Lily it was a curse. He starts to feel like he is getting somewhere with Lily when she just disappears. Here is where it gets crazy. These two are connected in more ways than one. The depths of the secrets that unfold are intense! They do get their HEA but not without one helluva fight. I love that Susan Griscom gives us this piece of Elvis. This is a must read series!

#WOTR #Review – Rook (Black Mountain Pack Book 2) by Miranda Lynn

34884580

Rook heads to South America and finds his hands full with bringing the Pride out of the dark ages that Tomas had kept it in for years under his malicious ruling. He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?

Goodreads

Beautifully written story with a great message. I could not put this down and read it in one sitting. In Mack, we learn that Rook used to be Casey’s protector and they are reunited within the pack. Casey is now the first Alpha Female and is the Alpha of the Pride in South America. Rook is one of her most trusted friends and he is sent to the Pride to check things out and see exactly how bad things are before Casey goes down. Rook is faced with many evils and keeps uncovering the ways this pride has lived for so long under the rule of Tomas, the previous Alpha and Casey’s father. He finds a harem of women and their cubs that Tomas kept to himself or gave out as favors to others. The way these women and children lived are horrible. And the village….well it is no better. Rook and Casey have their work cut out for them. In the midst of this Rook has found his mate, but Jasmine has seen many bad days and feels she is broken. Their love is blooming and the cats are ready to play! There are many new characters that are introduced and I am looking forward to hearing their stories as well. Love can conquer all, but this is a great twist on the shifters we have come to know.

Goodreads

Holy shifters and the b@d@ss women they attract! Shayne is a girl that is just floating through life. She doesn’t have any close friends, no family, and hates her job. One night her path crosses with Ian and Riley. The brothers are shifters!!! All of a sudden Shayne is thrown into a world that she doesn’t understand. The boys are used to being in a place of power and are not used to here standing up for herself and her mouth. It is very amusing and will put a smile on your face during their banter. Absolutely hilarious. They find themselves in some very tricky situations, not all of are safe. They find out more about their uncle who is the current king by default. They decide to go back to their lands and place Ian as the rightful heir to the throne. The story is very hard to put down. There is always something crazy going on. With all the action and the banter the story will keep you hooked! This is my first book this author and sure not to be the last. I have no idea where Mary Martel has been hiding, but I found you now! I am looking forward to the sequel!

#WOTR – #REVIEW – Love and the Corps (The Heart Nebula Series #2) by Ava Cuvay

Love and the Corps (The Heart Nebula Series #2)

Bound by duty, two soldiers yield to their hearts’ command.

Captain Jo Behsue has never questioned her career with Central Command’s leading military force—until now. Recent mission failures and the constant battle for acceptance from her fellow Corpsmen kindle her frustration, while the attention of a golden-eyed Klorakian mercenary ignites her body. Wrapped in his arms, she discovers even a scarred, hollow shell of a captain can love.

An officer in the Klorakian militia, Lux fights to return the rightful monarch to their homeworld’s throne—a planet which scorns his genetic shortcomings. He is loyal to his cause and king, but faces a bleak future once their mission is complete. His seduction of the combative yet beautiful Captain Behsue provides a glimpse of hope, and he fights for a life with Jo, who finds only beauty in his defects.

This book is intended for a mature audience. It contains graphic language, vivid relations, and the word “moist.”

Goodreads

Willing and wanting! Packed full of action and sexual angst. Captain Jo is with the Corps and Klorakian mercenaries are their allies. Jo has always been the ugly one. Her life is with the Corps, life and body. She has trained hard and believes she is invincible. She goes on a mission and is saved by the Klorakians. A certain Klorakian, Lux, is the one that saves her. Lux is an outcast himself. Full of genetic defects by Klorakian standards. Both are unwanted until they run into each other. Naturally fireworks explode. They both find refuge in each other but Jo continues to fight it as she is constantly trying to figure what is right and wrong. Lots of secrets are uncovered between the two of them. This is a sexually charged push and pull between them but they are always in the middle of a battle. Whether it be with the PITAS or with their emotions. They overcome many obstacles and then begin to wonder if they are worth each others time. This is such a crazy ride. Love the characters and the world building (or space building).It’s outstanding! You feel like you are right in the middle with the sights and sounds of all the soldiers. This author has an incredible knack of pulling you right in the story and making it where you absolutely don’t want to put the book down. Well done, Ava! Another out of this world story!

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. Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly”, without Jar-Jar Binks, and with a lot more heat.

She resides in central Indiana with a hubby who makes her laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. She enjoys the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at her own foibles (yeah, she laughs a lot).

She believes life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#Review – Immortal Hearts of San Francisco box set by Susan Griscom

33021485

Enter a world of temptation and lust, where rock stars are not only gorgeous and sexy, but they’re also vampires. These books are hot and sexy, and romantically addicting.

Tempted by a Vampire
Cian DeMarco, has lived in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay for the past seventy of his two-hundred and twenty years of his existence. Happily–or so he thought, preying on a different woman as often as his heart desires. Until the beautiful Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front-row tables in Club Royal where he and his band mates perform once a week. The scent of her blood has him completely undone and he’s unable to contain his desire for her.

Magdalena has a new job and a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco. Everything is just the way she’s imagined it could be… until she and her girlfriend find their way into an up scale night club and she’s suddenly swept off her feet by a member of the rock band. Mesmerized by his gaze, his scent penetrates and embraces every cell of her body and she can’t deny her own desires for him.

A temptation they can’t resist, leads to a future they never imagined as sparks ignite between the two until a threat from Cian’s past returns to wreak havoc on Cian’s and Magdalena’s lives. Will the desire to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe?

Captivated by a Vampire
She’s a vampire. He’s human and the best investigative reporter in the city. Their worlds mix as well as oil and water, but their attraction to each other is electric.

Josh Barrett knows his priorities—reporting the news as quickly and accurately as possible by day, drinking himself into a self-loathing stupor by night. His workaholic tendencies can’t completely mask the broken, depressed man he is inside. The horrific night that changed his life forever and left him broken-hearted and alone is forever fresh in his thoughts. But the torture is no less than he deserves. Until a beautiful, sexy, and utterly mysterious woman enters his life and changes everything. Chelle is absolutely enchanting, her allure captivating and the reporter in him is determined to learn all of her secrets.

Newly turned vampire Chelle Masterson only wants to find her place. Her unrequited love and devotion for her maker Lane has left Chelle broken, vowing to never fall for any man again. She’s determined to find her way in the scary new world of the immortals and begs for the chance to prove herself—to prove that she’s capable of surviving without the others. Unfortunately, she meets trouble head-on with her very first victim and ends up face to face with a very charming and handsome stranger. He seems to only want to help, but can she trust him?

As Josh slowly wins Chelle over, she decides to utilize his skills as a reporter to help uncover her past—a dark past that she cannot remember, but one she desperately needs to learn. Being around him is addicting, their connection undeniable, and she finds her will to keep him at arm’s-length dwindling.
The simple act of a Good Samaritan spirals into an obsession—much more than either of them thought possible. Their love becomes unfathomable, but it may not be enough to overcome the hurdles standing in their way…

Rocked by a Vampire
He’s dangerously sexy, insufferably arrogant, rude, and complicated as hell, yet what he reveals to her makes it impossible to stay angry and she can’t stop her growing desire for him.

Lane, has always walked in his brother’s shadow. And for good reason. There are monsters that plague his mind. Demons that once destroyed him. Broke him. Now, his desire for Vanessa torments him, igniting those revenants whenever he thinks of her. He’s desired her for months, but he hates what she is—what she stands for. Can the witch he loathes be the one to tame his demons?

Goodreads

This author has a way of getting you to like a book then giving you the second one to make you like the next one more. This is exactly what happened to me. I read Tempted By a Vampire and really, really liked it. But then I get my hands on this baby and love this story even more! This story is about Chelle and Josh. We meet Chelle in Tempted and she is the one that Lane turned into a vampire…not by choice. Chelle and Lane have lots of history and Chelle is finally getting out on her own. Josh is an investigative journalist, and a mere human, that is given an assignment that has him questioning himself. When Chelle and Josh meet they have strong connection. As things unfold, Chelle starts remembering her past, her parents, and the circumstances surrounding her parents death. As these things come to light she and Josh start confiding in each other and find that their pasts aren’t so different and they are more alike than they thought. Now they have to figure out if they can be good for each other. But this is not where this story ends. Not even close! There is a ginormous twist that will make your head spin and is absolutely worth the read. When you get to this part, you will understand completely what I mean. There is this perfect balance of love and hate. It’s full of bada$$ery and is soooooooo HOT!

Rocked By a Vampire
Rocked my soul! A rockin’ test of wills! This is Lane’s and Vanessa’s story…and what a story it is. Both of them are incredibly hard headed and always at each other’s throats. Although, they secretly like each other. *wags eyebrows* They both think the other doesn’t like them because of being a vampire or a witch but they share a connection that they cannot deny. This is an absolute test of wills between the two and the rollercoaster of emotion that follows is intense to say the least. Both start to bring the other out of their shell then all hell breaks loose. Vanessa and Lane are both very strong characters and watching them clash and come together is inspiring. This story is sweet, erotic, and satisfying.

We have followed these characters in Tempted By a Vampire and Captivated By a Vampire. They can be read as standalones but to truly appreciate these characters I suggest you read from the beginning. The author is incredible at making these characters evolve in a way you can’t rip away from. They go through the same emotions most people go through and therefore make them more real (even though they are vampires and witches, lol!). This series gets better and better as it continues.
