#NewRelease #PNR #Review – Blood and Revenge: Under the Skin Serial Part 4 by K.B. Ladnier


Blood and Revenge: Under the Skin Serial Part 4

***This is part four to a four part reverse-harem serial. Recommended for 18+ and is about 17,000+ words. There will be no cliffhanger***

“Lovers, vampires, and shifters, oh my!”

Lucy Bryant has finally been reunited with her men Hollis and Sloan, but now, she has another heart to add to the mix. Her maker Vex. His BloodLust induced haze has subsided and the guys seem to be open to having him added into the little love nest they’ve got going on.

Unfortunately, celebrating that will have to take a back seat.

Bellamy has released his drugged minion vampires loose in the city.
Buildings are burning.
Humans are dying.
And that precarious balance of peace between humans and vampires is toppling on its axis.

Can Lucy and her three men stop Bellamy from destroying the city? Or will she fail to get the revenge she desires for what he’s done to them all?




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

GAH!!  The end of Lucy’s Love Nest! NOOO!!!  LOL

So the final book in the serial ends up with Vex, Lucy, Hollis and Sloan going after Bellamy with the help of Claudia, Abraham and the other STF Agent.  The group have a huge war to deal with in the end when fighting the mega bad ancient vampire.  WE learn a little bit of history about Bellamy and Vex plus Abraham.  Big plot twists is given away in regards to how the guys know each other!!!

The Lucy’s guys are ok with allowing Vex into the new agreement when they find out who he is and how Lucy feels about him.  They are all falling into a great family and Vex is a perfect fit.  Sloan and Vex were cracking me up and Hollis is the adult of the group but I just love them all.  I will miss reading about their relationship but I can’t wait for Claudia and who her guys will be!!!

K.B. Ladnier is from a small city in Southern Mississippi. She has one daughter and three cats who she claims are stealing her soul in only tiny doses so she won’t notice. She is a cyborg and spends most of her time hiding from her tiny human so she doesn’t have to share her snacks as she reads her favorite books. She hates the beach yet lives only ten minutes away from it and daydreams of mountains and snow. She is married to a hot nerd and loves him dearly even though he hordes cookies and occasionally hides her prosthetic leg from her when she’s mad, so he can get a quick escape. She plans to write as long as people continue loving what she does, otherwise she’s going to say screw it and do her second dream of owning a coffee shop. Though, she may still do both.


#WOTR18 #ReleaseDay #Review – WHY I’M YOURS by CA Harms and S. Moose

CA Harms is the attending author.

Happy Release Day to S. Moose & C.A. Harms!


by CA Harms & S Moose
A point in time, an unexpected event, changes everything.
Reagan’s life was about to begin. A recent college graduate with her career about to launch, she was living in Boston with her best friends. She had everything she worked hard for until one man took it all away, leaving her feeling empty and desolate.
After spending a few years alone, Reagan finally moves to Chicago with her best friend, Aimee, and vows to put her past behind her. When Reagan lands a job at Powers Financial, she never expects to find the one person that would give her back the girl she left behind years ago.
Drew Powers loves being the powerful CFO of a successful corporation and raising his son, Dawson. He’s known as “asshat” at the company and it doesn’t help calm his temper or patience. Drew’s main focus doesn’t include love or commitment. Those are the last things on his mind.
When the reserved and beautiful Reagan Halloway bumps into him and tests his patience, he ignores the lust he feels for her until she becomes all he can think about.
Fate is a powerful thing. A force that leads two people to one another and gives them both the one thing they didn’t know they were missing.

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

CA Harms Book sign up – of course!!  New to me author S. Moose writing with her…Coolio.  I love CA So I figure this is a chance to read something from an author I haven’t read before on top of reading  book by one of my favorite people.

Man, what a great read.  The two had a great chemistry and I couldn’t put the book down.  The characters, Reagan and Drew, were ones we loved but wanted to smack upside the head.  Reagan was a bit naïve in the beginning of the book whereas Drew was just an ASSHAT like the blurb tells.

Reagan is not looking for love after her heart is broken but she stumbles into the cocky ad oh so arrogant Drew.  Drew is not about to admit his feelings for Reagan but he can’t stop thinking about the woman who works at his company even though she is a bit of a klutz.

The couple have a lot of personal baggage and history of their own to deal with and sort through before they can even open to the possibility of being together.  Drew’s son was seriously super adorable.  I mean I loved so man of his scenes!!

This book was such a great read and I was a bit misty while reading that is for sure but a book like that is a great find!!  Gotta love when the authors can rip out your heart right??!!


#NewRelease =Fighting the Ties, Glacial Blood Series Anna Edwards

Amazon US I Amazon UK I Amazon CA

The cage door closes on Emma Bryant’s freedom after she is arrested for a brutal murder that she did not commit. The tough-talking lioness knows the penalty she faces is death. Can she repel all of the lies in order to survive?

Scott Frazier is always the joker. Beneath the golden lion’s mane is hidden a secret that just might save the woman he’s known to be his future mate since the first time he saw her. The blood of kings runs through him. Will he make the ultimate sacrifice to save the one he loves?

Fighting the Lies is the sequel to The Touch of Snow; the paranormal romance that had non-readers converting to the genre. It continues the story of the Glacial Blood pack as they strive to save a member from the horrific position she finds herself in. But the story isn’t that simple, not when Nuka Lincoln is around, and an impending storm threatens the world as they know it. The Glacial Blood world is full of intrigue, suspense and kick arse fights. It also features a secret that should remain untold.

A family isn’t always blood; it’s the people in your life that accept you for what you are.

Young, rich, and better looking than a man has a right to be, successful songwriter Brad “Hitman” Maxwell was once Nashville’s biggest celebrity.

And she refuses to ruin this opportunity by falling for her sexy boss. Except that Brad suddenly starts writing music again… music inspired by her.

#Review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – Save My Soul, Save My Soul Book 1  By: K.S. Haigwood 

Save My Soul (Save My Soul, #1)

Kendra Larkin’s life was seemingly perfect, but little did she know the path she was on was about the be forever altered. Following a tragic rappelling accident, she lands on Dr. Adam Chamberlain’s operating table.

Accepting a proposal from her handsome guardian angel, Rhyan, Kendra is tasked with saving the soul of her doctor, who also happens to be her soul mate. If completed successfully, she will keep her life; however, her life isn’t the only thing in danger … her soul is, too.

Even with Rhyan’s help, it seems there is no happy ending in sight. Torn between her newly discovered love for Rhyan, and the undeniable attraction she has for Adam, Kendra finds herself at a crossroad. With Adam’s rejection of God, and his guardian demon conspiring against her, her soul may already be lost.

Will she find a way to overcome the evil in her life, or will Adam’s guardian demon win both their souls and make Kendra his puppet in Hell?



Review by Jordan

Good will always defeat evil! When it comes to love you have to open your heart or love will never find its way. How does one overcome their own guardian demon to find their soul mate? That’s exactly what Adam must do, without knowing what he is even up against. Kendra must find a way to save Adam’s soul or his won’t be the only one to be dragged to Hell!
The characters continue to pull me into their world! I was anxious just like Kendra when I couldn’t find Adam! The overwhelming relief when things go right. I love the way I get pulled in and can’t put the book down. Was such a great story and I can’t wait to read more about Rhyan.

K. S. Haigwood is the author of the Save My Soul, Eternal Island and Moonrising series. By day, she is a CNC Machinist, but by night and weekend, she saves the world or destroys it in a single bound, depending on what mood she is in and if she has had her coffee. In addition to being an award winner for the ‘Life Changing Read Award’, she has also been nominated twice for Best Indie Book 2016 in the Paranormal category.

Characterization is one of K.S. Haigwood’s strongest points. You can understand each characters’ predicaments and you can almost foresee their reactions. But. There’s always a but, with this author, because Haigwood can deliver enough twists and turns to turn a tornado on its head. Just as you think you’ve figured where the story is going next, she’s duped you again.

The whole of her novels are littered with good chuckle moments, and even in the darkest hour, the thinnest hint of a silver lining is still visible among the clouds.

Shock therapy for body and soul, delivered at a hundred miles an hour with the humor and charisma of a trendsetter, Haigwood is certain to be hailed the new wonder-drug to cure all ills.

Acceptance by Lyssa Layne

I receive this book from the author.

So when my girl Lyssa asked if I wanted to read her cowboy book, I jumped because, well I love Lyssa.  I am not country girl at all but like I said….ITS Lyssa!  SO I sat and read her amazing story about some country music fans at a music festival.

So this book is about Noah and Remy.  They meet when she is attending the concert to interview the country studs.  Now she is not at all happy about it but sparks happen.  I liked the YAish feel of the story.  The yearning for the other.  The getting to know each other through a long-distance romance.   The couple find out secrets and about each other and still find a way to make it work.

If you love Lyssa books you will know that her characters are just so freaking awesome and lovable.  Yes, they are flawed at times but who isn’t.  Her characters are real and likeable which makes her stories some of my favorites.

Lyssa Layne is first, and foremost, the proud momma to her precious daughter, AR. In addition to working full-time and being a mommy to AR, she is also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, a runner, blogger, and an infertility survivor.

Having watched one too many medical dramas and being inspired by author Rachelle Ayala, who introduced her to the world of indie writing, Lyssa decided to try her hand at writing a romance story. Her attempt turned into the Burning Lovesick series. You can find Lyssa’s own interests throughout her stories although all stories are fictional.

#Review #DieselPunk #Shifters – The Mechanic’s Mate (The Diesel War #1) by Mikea Howard @mikeahowardwrit

The Mechanic's Mate (The Diesel War #1)

Abused and on the run, Sadie flees through the woods. For the first time in her life, she craves the blissful silence of nature. Her sire and mate is a monster who hid his inner evil all too well. Her skills as a mechanic now useless, intolerant to the noise and pollution of the city’s diesel engines thanks to her new werewolf status, Sadie’s only hope is the ex-pack of the monster she escaped. But will they accept the dieselhead mate of a rogue?

Domek, the Blue Wolf alpha, has caught the scent of the rogue he’s sworn to hunt down. But he’s shocked to find it attached to a frail, damaged city girl, the most beautiful creature he has ever seen. The desire to take care of her is fierce . . . unexplainable.

How can he protect a woman who has tied the fate of her mortality to the life of a rogue he must destroy?



I purchased this book at a book signing.

SO when I saw the ladies I thought OH COOL….so I ran over to check out what I ignorantly thought would be historical.  I love historical so yeah their awesome costumes made me run over.  Then I get there and am all “ uhm what is DieselPunk?” and then while asking I am reading the back of the book and see the keyword “Shifter” and I said sold!  Yup that is how I roll!!  Plus their covers are totally awesome!!

I can’t even begin to tell you what I loved because there were so many aspects to the story and genre that I loved.  I love shifters and so this added DeiselPunk science was kinda cool.  Then throw in a dominant hottie Alpha who is all into the kinks…yes please #HEAVEN!!

Another thing I loved was the whole Mated to the wrong guy…our poor girl Sadie thinks she has found THE ONE and accepts him as her mate only to realize nope she got tricked.  As she is running from her “mate” she stumbles into our hottie alpha, Domek.  He is consumed with the little wolf but can’t understand why?  She is mated to another and it’s his bitter enemy at that!!

Domek’s storyline is great.  He is really trying to do the right thing but he can’t get his head around the fact he feels Sadie is his.  Sadie is so drawn to Domek but thinks he is only helping her because he accepted her into his pack for safety.  The couple have a few obstacles to overcome… her original mate, her non-english/Diesel speak and the fact that she challenges him while submitting to him as well.  Her and Kara has great sense together!! #GirlPower

I LOOOOVED the story and how we find out what to do to fix Sadie’s trouble but I also loved the build-up for the next book…so excited for Molly and Edo!!  I can’t wait to jump in and see what kind of shenanigans we will be reading about in the next book!

Writing under Mikea Howard, we are actually Mindy Howard and Kelly Smith, sisters-in-law who share a love for romance, usually paranormal. We have spent the last several years reading and sharing books as well as authors, often making comments about how we’d love to write our own when we ran out of things to read.
While based on our TBR piles, we have not run out of reading material, yet we decided to write when the muse hit Kelly with a dystopian diesel world and an opening scene with the heroine running out into the woods. Mindy then saw her hero step in, and The Diesel War series was born.
