#WOTR20 #paranormal #review #Novella #KU – Candied Wolf (Mates & Macarons #1) by Ellis Leigh

Candied Wolf (Mates & Macarons #1)

At the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove, three sisters are about to meet their matches and prove that a man with a little silver in his hair can make one heck of a mate…if the fates allow it.

* * *

No more dating shifters—at least, that’s what I promised myself after the last one met his mate while dating me. He wasn’t the first—fate seemed to enjoy smacking me upside the head whenever I dared to cross the species line. So when a handsome wolf shifter with a few extra years of experience comes walking into my bakery, I shouldn’t agree to go on a date with him.

Especially not because he’s only in town for the biggest wedding of the year.

The one where his son is the groom.

The one between my last boyfriend and his fated mate.

Did I say fate liked to smack me upside the head? Try burying me in the rubble of my past mistakes instead. Like father, like son had never been so wrong…or so right.


I purchased this book.

What a great introduction to the fun city of Kinship Cove!

Coco and her sisters run the popular bakery in town.  Madeline the shy. Ginger the slutty. Coco the perfect mix.  LOL

Coco’s past with men has not been good and her last boyfriend is now inviting her to his wedding.  Tacky Nico Tacky.  When a hot silver fox rolls into the bakery and sweeps Coco off her feet, watching the sparks fly was fun.

I would like to say what I loved about this book was the big twist we learn about Magnus and Coco’s combined history!!!  Coco is devastated and Magnus is lost because Coco doesn’t know she is his MATE.

The story of the two of them finding their way back and a sneaky fox named Misty helping made the story a quick and sexy read for a cold, blustery day!!

A storyteller from the time she could talk, USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a German Shepherd that refuses to leave her side.

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #Review #RH #NewRelease #ReleaseDay – Dash:An Ariel Kimber Novella by Mary Martel

Dash: An Ariel Kimber Novella

Dash Flynn always thought he was damaged beyond repair.
Both a mother and a grandmother who had wanted him to be born a female witch, growing up, he was nothing but a disappointment to those around him.
His father had fought for him as best as he could before he disappeared from Dash’s life, leaving him to grow up with the two women they both had hated most in this world.
Years later, Dash thinks his life is finally coming together.
He has his brothers, his coven, and his sweet angel, Ariel. Finally a woman in his life deserving of his love.
But is that enough?
Only time will tell.


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

I think each book I fall more in love with Dash but LAWD don’t let Uncle Quint know I admitted this.  He is super growly at times.

For all of you Dash lovers, this book is just what you wanted and expected.  I am a HUGE fan of these POV books of the men in Ariel’s lives.  I love seeing Ariel with the guys in the large books, but I really love these novellas because we can see Ariel and the guy bonding and growing in love.  We can see them sharing experiences that will be special to them only, but we get to see all the inside details of each relationship.  The large books are full of twists and new drama, but these novellas slow it down for us a bit to see the relationships growing and developing.  Any who that is just my 5 cent opinion.

So Dash….Dreamy sigh ladies….DREAMY SIGH!!!  We finally see more of the way his life was when he was a child and friends….my heart just couldn’t handle it.  We also get to learn a bit about Binx and again my heart!!!

Ariel and Dash are reconnecting in this book because so much has happened and they both feel a bit lost without the other.  They have a special bond…over blood and pain…the others don’t understand but that is what makes their relationship so important and extra special.  Sorry Quint but you gotta just deal with that little bit of information. *pats Quintons head while he pouts*

Again this book is helping us reconnect the two and lawd was it a good reconnection!!  HEEEYY!! *Wink*  But we also see some new things happening…Like the stuff Baxter lets slip and Isobel and Rain plus Rain and the council.  I love how this book ended and can’t wait for the story to continue to unfold.

But friends, I am really really looking forward to Juls and Ariel’s book.  Something about this broody sweetheart makes me again turn my head.  Each layer of this man that is unveiled ….yeah I just kinda sigh…..

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – CJ Baty

C.J. Baty

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

C.J. Baty presently I live in Southwest Ohio, but I live part time in Seveirville, TN. I published my first book in 2013. Spending time with my grown children is a passion. And I’m looking forward to the day when my husband and I can fully retire and do some traveling. I’ve always been an avid reader, when I was offered the chance to write my own stories by an Indie Publishers I was shocked and thrilled. It has been amazing ride getting my stories down on paper and out into the world. I wouldn’t want to do anything else.

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

I have a mixed tape of nature sounds that I listen to most of the time when I’m writing. I love the sounds of a creek flowing or rain falling. My one go to drink is Diet Mt. Dew or coffee if I’m writing in the morning. I have several favorite spots to go to when I want to get away from my office. A local Waffle House where the girls keep my coffee cup full. A bagel/muffin place where my NANO group meets and my local library. It was recently refurbished and it’s an amazing place to work.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Authors! Readers! People! Books! What’s not to like? To be honest, the moments where I get to meet someone who loved something I wrote and they are as excited about it as I am. Also, fangirling over authors that I adore, that’s a definite plus as well.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

My unicorn author was Josh Lanyon! I by ‘was’ I mean I finally met her last year at the GayRomanceLit event. She and I were both signing authors. It was the most exciting moment for me. I was totally tongue tied but I’ll never forget it.

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

I’m definitely a sit and go girl. If the words aren’t flowing, I’ve been known to pack up the laptop and tell my husband ‘be back later’. He knows I’m going to find someplace to inspire me.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite moment so far, came at 2019 Writer’s On the River event. I finally got to meet a reader who had been following me for sometime now. We’d chatted on line and I knew I’d love her. She surprised me at the event but the sweet thing was so excited she was blushing and couldn’t speak. That touched my heart so much, but I was just excited to meet her.

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

I have a signed copy of Josh Lanyon’s The Dark Tide (Bk 5 in the Adrien English Series). Meeting Josh and having her sign that book was amazing highlight in my life. I cherish the book and that memory.

Santa’s Stuffing More Than Her Stockings…

#Review #Wotr20 #AttendingAuthor #Year5Family #MMRomance #PartOfASeries

Just as Silver begins to wonder if his casual relationship with Gold might turn into more, the two men are thrown into a position that has the lovers quickly turning into enemies.
With no way to escape each other, Silver and Gold begrudgingly agree to make the best of an impossible situation.
Will Gold’s search for perfection drive them apart or can Silver show Gold that imperfection can be beautiful?
Silver & Gold is a steamy, slow burn M/M enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity romance between two slightly self-absorbed artists.
This is the second book in the Silver in the City series.




Review by Tenise

I was fortunate enough to get a copy of this book from the author before it was released. This is my honest review.
4 stars!

Silver & Gold is book #2 in the Silver in the City Series. Each book is about a different couple, but I highly recommend reading them in order to have a better understanding of things. Plus, each of these couples have their own things that make them AMAZING. You don’t wanna miss a thing.

What would you do if you started feeling MORE for a casual fling? If you are thinking maybe you should take things to the next level, then an unfortunate mistake, turns you into enemies?

That is exactly what happened to Benji & Rhys and now the only place they want to take things is far, far away from each other. That is kind of hard for them to do since they really have nowhere to hide.

I love this series so much! All of the men are amazing and each of them have a special place in my heart. I’m both excited and sad to read book 3. I don’t want this series to end.

A.d. Ellis is my go to when I need an MM fix. Her books always grab me from the first paragraph and don’t let go until the last word. Silver and Gold had the same effect on me. I can’t wait to read book 3 in this series.

About A.D. Ellis

A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her or they/them pronouns.

Hades and Persephone has an never ending romance. But after their last stunt with the family her good old dad Zeus wasn’t happy with either of them so what does he do, condemned her marriage and banished Hades into Tartarus and makes Persephone come to DC with him basically holding her prisoner in his house. So the rest of the family has to band together to save Persephone and get Hades back before things get wore then they already are. Will they save everyone in time and get the love birds back into each other’s arms. This is overall a really great book can’t wait to read more. The quick wit and bantering that comes from these God and goddesses is hilarious.
