#Review #Paranormal = Blood Vowed by Traci Douglass

Blood Vowed (Blood Ravagers, #3)

Reverend “Rev” Walker, expected some backlash after he foiled The Council’s attempts to overthrow the Blood Ravager Biker Gang. What he hadn’t expected was to wake up in the last place he ever wanted to see again—a dank cell of The Council’s Siberian dungeon. Drained and chained, he faces certain death if he can’t escape from the hellish prison. Now, his only means of escape depends on him accepting help from a fellow prisoner, a woman whose very existence is a lie and the only one capable of awakening Rev’s long-dormant heart.

Claire Deveraux is Dygarian, a race of shadow-shifters who have been slandered and hunted to extinction by The Council. But Claire has used her years of enslavement well, reading her captors’ secret texts and hearing their whispered secrets. Now, after being locked up for a crime she didn’t commit, she plans to use her knowledge of the dungeon’s maze-like interior to gain her freedom, or die trying. Then a new prisoner arrives, a man Claire has dreamed of and knows in her heart is her destined mate, if only she can break through his walls.

On the run and threatened from all sides, will Rev and Claire learn to trust each other and their growing feelings for one another before it’s too late?


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

I was so excited to read this book!!  I fell in absolute love with Rev and couldn’t wait to see what happened to him after the way the last book ended.  He is captured in a cell by the Council along with Claire.  She is some kinda special.  She is the last of her kind of shape shifters.

Claire is planning on escaping to get revenge on people that harmed her family.  Rev is all on board with the escape and revenge as well.  Rev does all he can to deny his attraction to Claire buuuut fails miserably.  His brooding male was funny to read along with Claire’s first experiences with Real Life.

The story and plot flow really well.  The chemistry between the two was written really well.  The story of Claire and her people were sad.  I loved Rev from the first time we met him in book 1 s I knew his book would be one I devoured.

Fresh, Flirty, Fun. Sweet, Sexy Romance.

My stories feature sizzling heroes with humor, quick wits and troubled pasts and heroines who are smart, tenacious, and always give as good as they get. I hold an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and I love cute animals, chocolate, coffee, hot British actors, and sarcasm—not necessarily in that order.

My books are published with Harlequin/Mills & Boon, Entangled Publishing, and Tule Publishing.

Ellis Leigh/Kristin Harte

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I write on my couch (feet up, blanket on) and am addicted to Smart Food white cheddar popcorn. It’s a problem.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting readers and talking about books! I’m a reader first and an author second, so I love being around other people who adore books and want to gush about their favorites. I end up with so many new books to read!

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

Kelley Armstrong. Her Women Of The Otherworld series is why I write.

What author would you love to write with?

Kati WIlde. Her voice and style sucks me in. I’d love to pick her brain to elevate my own books.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I was at a reader event in Texas, standing in line at a Starbucks in the hotel. We’re talking pajamas on, hoodie hiding my bedhead, non-brushed teeth moment. We’ve all been there, right? Anyway, I’m waiting patiently for my turn to order heaven in a cup when a reader screamed my name from across the lobby. Seriously–SCREAMED IT. I almost died, and then I cracked up because she must really pay attention to my social media to recognize me from so far away and without my “face” on. Next time I meet her, I hope to be more presentable. I’ll buy her a coffee.

#WOTR19 #Novella #Review – Stalk Me Please by CM Steele

Stalk Me Please

Hailey: He owns the coffee shop, so I need to stop fantasizing that he comes here to see me. In fact, he’s never spoken to me other than to order his coffee. I just can’t get over the way he sits in the corner of the shop a couple times a week slowly sipping his hot, black coffee and staring at me with intent. Why? I don’t know. I should be concerned that he’s like a lion stalking his prey, but all I can think of is stalk me, please.

James: I watch her every chance I get. When the time’s right, she will be mine. With every smile she tosses at a male customer, the angrier I get. Buying the shop, installing extra cameras, and visiting twice a week does nothing to calm the need to claim her for my own. She’s going to think I’m crazy, but really, I’m determined.


I purchased this book from Amazon.

I hate when books say “If you like 50 Shades….” Buuuut this book reminded me of Bossy Christian.  No there isn’t any BDSM but the controlling and possessive, demamding Christian behavior is totally James.

James is legit a stalker who is obsessed with Hailey, his coffee shop employee.  She is oblivious to what he feels towards her, but she is totally infatuated by him too.

When James can’t take it anymore, he scoops in and rescues Hailey.  He offers her a new job not knowing that he has a lot more in store for her then just switching jobs.

I liked the story of the older, experienced man who takes over and does everything he can to capture the woman he is head over heels for.  Hailey is innocent but also feisty which was a fun read.

The story has some steam and makes for a great quick read for an afternoon.

C.M. Steele lives for writing what she likes to read. With over 60+ short stories and a couple actual novels, she is only just beginning. She is most definitely not for everyone, but she does love her readers. Working on improving her craft is a monumental task because she has the attention span of a gnat and the patience of a race car driver in Walmart (Absolutely none.)

There’s never any spamming because CM sends them out herself and she’s focused on her writing most days.

#WOTR19 #Paranormal #Shifters #Novella #review – Honey Bear: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons #3) by Ellis Leigh

Honey Bear: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons Book 3)

Sometimes the happy in happily ever after is relative. Or related. Sort of. The third slice of sweetness from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

I’m supposed to be the nice sister. The good one. The girl everyone can count on and who rallies the troops whenever one of us needs a little boost. I’m not supposed to be anything other than sweet. I’m not the one secretly pining for a man twice my age. A man who shifts into a bear at whim and runs the whole darn town with a calm sort of confidence never before seen in Kinship Cove. But I do pine. I pine hard.

And when I make bad decisions because of that, I become the sister with a burden bigger than she can carry.

And a secret.

What would you do if you needed money fast? What wouldn’t you do?

I won’t sell my body. So instead, I’ll sell the closest thing I can—to whoever has the right amount of cash.

And I’ll cross my fingers and hope the bear shifter who refuses to see me as anything other than sweet never finds out.

HONEY BEAR is the latest paranormal romance from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh. The story is part of the Shifters In Love: Fun & Flirty world but is a standalone romance with wit, snark, and more than just flirting.


Honey Bear: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons #3) by Ellis Leigh

I purchased this book from Amazon.

I love love love the paranormal world that Elis creates in all of her stories.  She makes me laugh and love each and every characer.

This book is about sweet human Madeline/Maddy who is crazy in love with the town mayor and bear shifter Jericho.  The history of the two is long and intertwined to the point that Jericho calls himself Maddy’s uncle…ewwwww.  However, when Maddy grows up Jericho no longer wants to her uncle but her lover because the fates have made her is mate.

Jericho needed to a good kick in the pants because he was being an idiot and I loved the naughty Fox who helped him see he was missing a good thing by denying is mate, Maddy.

Maddy has given up on Jericho and also started a side business that ….welll…..isn’t traditional but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do right???

I loved the scene when Jericho finds out about Maddy’s little side business, but I really loved seeing Maddy stand up to Jericho’s enemy and let everyone know this little human is not so sweet after all!!

I so want to read the rest of the books in the series because all the characters cracked me up so I imagine their books are just as funny.

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.

She can run, but there’s no escape from a bond carved in scars.


Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

TAKE (#5)

DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers


His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.


Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.


Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?


“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.

#NewRelease #Revew #MontgomeryInk #Contemporary #1001DarkNights Ashes to Ink (Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs 2.5) by Carrie Ann Ryan

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a new story in her Montgomery Ink series…

Back in Denver, Abby lost everything she ever loved, except for her daughter, the one memory she has left of the man she loved and lost. Now, she’s moved next to the Montgomerys in Colorado Springs, leaving her past behind to start her new life.

One step at a time.

Ryan is the newest tattoo artist at Montgomery Ink Too and knows the others are curious about his secrets. But he’s not ready to tell them. Not yet. That is…until he meets Abby.

Abby and Ryan thought they had their own paths, ones that had nothing to do with one another. Then…they took a chance.

On each other.

One night at a time.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.*


 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Abby lost the love of her life too soon, they didn’t get to get married and he didn’t get to see their child born.  Yet, she knows he’s still there and does her best to instill in their daughter the love that he had for her.  She is moving on with her life of running her business and raising her daughter and is slowly learning that is ok to ask for help. Well, slowly learning because the Montgomery family has added her to their ever growing brood and telling her daily that it’s ok. Lol

Ryan, is a artist at Montgomery Ink Too.  He has a hard time letting anyone in too, but for a totally different reason.  He is attracted to Abby, but will never act on it if he has his way.

You can’t stop fate though.

Ryan has once again shows us why she is a great author by giving us a couple with real world issues, instead of a couple who just has no problems what so ever, have a great love and live happily ever after.  Abby and Ryan want each other and have to deal with their obstacles before they can.

She also shows us that family is not always about the blood that runs through your veins, but about the love that is in your heart and that is what the Montgomery family is all about.

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

GAH!!  I love paranormal and this series is so going to make my heart happy!!!  When I was offered the chance to read this I jumped because paranormal is my heart and soul.  Friends!!  I am soooo happy I did.  I loved the world Valerie created.  I loved the characters and I am soooo excited for more from them.  I am not sure who exactly I want to read next!!

Marcus is an empty, lonely immortal.  He lost the mate to an evil enemy and so he is walking the world looking to avenge her.  He is happy to aide his best friend and future king of their race when his sister tells him he has yet another mate.  This is so NOT what our man wants or feels he needs!

Cassie is so loving and hating the erotic dreams she keeps having over this faceless, FANGED man.  When Marcus strolls in to the bar she is at, BOOM she is a hot mess…literally HOT! *wink*  She is losing her mind over how she is attracted to this stranger.

The story of the two of them fighting the draw plus also crashing into each other is such a great read.  They can’t stop fate and it seems fate needs them to be together due to the future war that is erupting.  Their love is also at risk, because the bad guy and his evil accomplice need what they have to conquer the world.

I seriously can’t tell you enough how much I liked this story and how I look forward to the continuing story of trying to stop the war.

#review #releaseday #TwinsieForTheDayBecky – Tainted Reasoning (Dark Sovereignty #2) by Anna Edwards

Tainted Reasoning (Dark Sovereignty #2)

“Why would I let the world see him? He’s imperfect. No, he needs to stick to the shadows where he’ll not bring shame to this family.”

William Cavendish is…different. Too much so for his merciless father to bear publicly. He was hidden away from the world his entire life until, in one dark moment, he did the unthinkable to save his beloved brother, gaining his own freedom in the process. But liberty has its own price. William struggles with a world he doesn’t understand, emotions he’s never experienced…and an alarming taste for the dark side he’s discovered dwelling within him.

Formally educated in law, Tamara Bennet is unlike most women of the day. Not bad for the daughter of a lowly lady’s maid. When she learns a secret society was responsible for the torture of her closest acquaintance, Victoria Cavendish, she vows to employ any and all means—legal or otherwise—to bring the society to its knees. At her side is Victoria herself, as well as Victoria’s husband, Nicholas, and his brother—the intriguing and troubled William.

Delving ever deeper into London’s darkest shadows, an undeniable attraction blooms between William and Tamara, bringing them closer and closer…until their actions stir up perilous forces determined to tear them apart.



Review by Becky

Tainted Reasoning, Dark Sovereignty Book 2  by Anna Edwards

I received the book for my honest review.

What can I say?!  Anna pulls us deeper into what remains of the Secret Society.  We learned that Nicolas was not like his evil father.  He married Victoria. Nicolas and William slowly started righting the wrongs of the Secret Society.  Victoria’s bestie, Tamara, was instantly drawn to William.  William grew up being hidden from the world by his father as well as being told he brought shame to the family…being less than the wonderful human being he was deep inside.  Just like Nicolas, William’s heart was good and that good would come out with Tamara.

William thought his rough, strong sexual desires and acts were evil. Oh baby, bring it on!!!  Tamara discovered that rough, strong sex is what she desired as well.  Tamara walks along side William and shows him he is not the only one who has Autism.  Tamara volunteered at a school that caters to those with Autism and brings William to visit as a surprise.  Seeing William open up and realize he is not a disgrace, was beautiful.

Viscount Hamilton is a *&%# bag.  Talk about warped.  Damn!  I anxiously await Joanna and Theodore’s story.  As evil as Hamilton is and all he has done, I have confidence that Anna will make sure he is properly castrated!!

Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.

I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.

I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.

I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.
