#Review – Dungari Rise (Alien Alphas of Pilathna #1) by Nikki Landis

Dungari Rise (Alien Alphas of Pilathna, #1)

Synika was his mate and he didn’t give a damn if she refused.

“You’re going to be my bride. I’ll make certain of it.”

Synika has hidden from the dominant alien race that conquered Earth 100 years ago in search of fertile females. She’s a strong-willed and headstrong woman who knows what she wants and it isn’t belonging to some Dungari male and auctioned off at the annual Choosing. When she meets Tuvari and their worlds collide, Synika is forced to confront her prejudices and decide if the Dungari male is her friend, foe . . . or maybe more.

Tuvari helped establish the first colony on Earth and works with the Dungari Bureau of Human Affairs. He’s a soldier and a warrior with a reputation, determined to keep his race from extinction. Strong, charismatic, confident, and sexy as sin he’s used to getting his way and exactly what he wants. Until he meets Synika. Tuvari has always believed his one true mate existed but could he dare to fall for a human?

Is it love, lust, or something more that draws the two together? In a world torn apart and ravaged by lies, can Tuvari and Synika move past the betrayal of a nation and find common ground?

Dungari Rise is first in a new exciting series of alien romances with heat, Alien Alphas of Pilathna.

In revenge and in love woman is more barbaric than man is.

This line….really hits home with this story. Hell hath no fury and all that. Synika is a terribly fierce and strong woman but one day she is taken by the barbaric Dungari warrior, Tuvari. She sees him as a monster and he sees her as his mate. Two completely different feelings toward each other and regarding the situation at hand. Synika has been taken against her will and she has been placed within Prince Varo’s harem. Tuvari believes she is his one true mate and the only way to protect her is to keep her with him in the harem that he watches over. The Dungari are a dying race and have justified their ways of taking human females for breeding, at any cost, to save their race. Synika is introduced to the harem and soon finds out the horrors that go on within the harem. Tuvari does his best to keep her safe, and the rest of the harem. The more that Synika and Tuvari get to know each other, they learn about each other’s past and their race’s past. This opens their eyes to each others issues and their feelings toward one another. Humans aren’t safe. Dungar aren’t safe. No one is safe. Will love prevail?

This has a distinct dystopian and Sci-fi feel. And the Dungari being part of the book add to the craziness of the story. There are times in the story with regard to the abuse that could be a trigger for some. The author does a great job of getting the point across and letting your imagination do the work, but can be difficult to read at times. There are lots of twist and turns and OMG moments that will keep you turning the pages. This is quite the tortuous tale of true love with many prejudices to overcome. I am looking forward to continuing the series.

Melanie Jayne/M. Jayne– I’m a bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child…well you get the picture. I spend my days creating women that I want to hang with, men that I want to do all kinds of dirty, filthy things to, and my nights tending to my dog and long-suffering hubby on our grain farm in Indiana. I write Paranormal Romance featuring the Novus Pack and Contemporary Seasoned Romance. I live to write and must write to live. I like my pizza with lots of cheese, my music loud, and my friends to have foul mouths and if you love trashy TV like the Real Housewives or Steve Wilkos— Let’s be friends. My life is never dull– I’m not for everybody but I am entertaining.

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

Dog out/dog in, laundry started, candle lit, music on- each book has a playlist, Hint Watermelon water if it is a Novus book, Coffee, and Dove milk chocolate.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The planning of the table, packing up the stuff, the excitement in the room as we are all setting up, the anticipation before the doors open and THE READERS!!!! Seeing old friends and Making new ones. We all the same in common- we love to read!

Anne Perry (yes, I will go to Scotland) and Patricia Briggs

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 try to write every day but Tuesday. If it isn’t flowing then I stop. I write 2.5-3 hours a day and usually in the morning, sometimes between 2-5 in the afternoon if my characters are talking to me. I edit in long stretches because the first round fixes are so difficult.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

At Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick Weekend in Indianapolis. Singling along to Pearl Jam’s song, Black. Everybody was on the dance floor with our arms around one another. She brought us all together and it was a magical night. There also might be a few other stories that I can’t put in writing but they involve Cowboy Cocksuckers( Google it– it’s a drink) and shenanigans.

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

I have a book from my childhood, Christmas in a Small Village, that my mom would read to me every year, until I could read, and then I did it. I still get it out every year and read it.

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #AuthorSpotlight – Lynda J. Cox

Lynda J. Cox

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Lynda J Cox–and I don’t use a pen name, though there are times, I wonder about that decision. I fell in love with the west and history when I was a kid, so writing western historical romance is the perfect genre for me. When I’m not writing about the strong women who tamed the West and the men brave enough to love them, I travel to dog shows. My boy, Vander, goes with me everywhere and at a few book signings, people were more excited he was coming than me. Yeah, that puts it all in perspective.

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

I do my best writing in the wee hours of the morning. The house is quiet, everyone is asleep. I have the headphones on and music jacked up. What I listen to while writing totally depends on what I’m writing. I can’t write at all if I don’t have a diet coke next to me. I prefer crunchy snacks when I’m writing.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The readers! Oh, my gosh…the readers. Even if a reader doesn’t read my genre, we still talk books and the great authors I’ve been introduced to by readers is amazing.

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

There are two, actually–JK Rowlings and Sarah J Maas.

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?

Schedule? What’s that?

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

An email I received from a reader. After reading *West of Forgotten*, she wrote me to share her story of surviving spousal abuse and that because of *West of Forgotten*, she found the courage to call her local crisis center and get out of that situation. She said day to day was still “iffy”, but she was determined to never go back. I was stunned by that email. I never envisioned the day something I would write could so profoundly touch someone and be what they needed to survive.

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

Yep–it’s *The Amazing Kid Donovan* by EK Recknor. Ellen was a close personal friend (I showed her whippet for her for almost two years) and when she was writing Kid, she asked me to beta read it for her. Ellen autographed a galley copy for me. Sadly, Ellen passed away a few years ago. I can’t tell you how much I miss the conversations she and I had, late at night, talking plots, story structure, marketing. Ellen was the first person to tell me I could write and pushed me to send my first book to my publisher, The Wild Rose Press.

Seth Lane is back in action…

When Seth is called to investigate a case against a high profile boxing champion he knows that he’s in for a challenge. If the chance of high publicity isn’t enough to keep him on his toes, the road blocks that get put his way certainly will.

Balancing his home and work life has never been harder. Seth is on the hunt for the perpetrator while still trying to make his wife a priority.

And when the DNA comes back, it’s the biggest twist he’s ever seen in his career…

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – C.E. Johnson

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I’m C.E. Johnson but you can call me Carrie! I’ve lived in the middle of cornfields and in the Windy City. I like both for different reasons so I settled somewhere in between the two. However, the older I get the more I miss the country. I spent a whole lot of money on a Master’s degree in Communications, only to discover my love for writing novels after I graduated. It’s an expensive piece of paper, but it’s mine and I’m proud of it. I’m a wife, mama, dog lover, coffee addict, and night writer.

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

Sweet tea or coffee is a must. I write the best at my desk in my office. Sadly, its next to the playroom so I’ve gotten really good at writing while hearing “Bro! I just re-spawned! What are you doing? BROOOOO!” In case you don’t understand that, I live in a house full of gamers. It gets interesting.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting readers! It’s so surreal that readers want me to sign their books. When I meet the readers, it really fires me up to go write more!

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

Kristen Ashley! I love some Colorado Mountain Men!

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 a sit and go girl. I used to try to sit down for a long period of time and get the words in. But now, I’ve found that I really enjoy writing for small spurts throughout the day. I can write for awhile, then take a break. (Ha! Did I just say break? I meant go do laundry, dishes, or scrub a toilet. Ah, motherhood!) And when I come back, new ideas have usually come to me.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My very first signing I had a reader who drove an hour and a half just to meet me. I was the entire reason she came to the signing. That is still pretty surreal to me.

#WOTR20 #NewRelease #Review #RH #AnitHero #KU – Vanity (A Villainously Romantic Retelling Book 5) by Mary Martel

Vanity (A Villainously Romantic Retelling Book 5)

The beautiful does well to hide the beast.
Nova Crimson was absolutely beautiful, and she knew it. Not only was she beautiful but she was smart, filthy rich, had a fabulous wardrobe, a great house, on paper she seemed to have it all going for her.
Well, what’s the problem with all of this, you want to know?
The interior didn’t match the exterior, or so the saying goes. Nova Crimson was a cold, ruthless bitch who got what she wanted when she wanted it and wasn’t afraid of the casualties who might get trampled in her wake.
There’d only ever been one person in her life who she’d allowed to see past the beautifully cold mask she hid behind, and that had been a boy named Olliver who’d been everything Nova had not. They’d become friends, of a sort, after Nova stood up to protect him.
Unfortunately, the very next day, Olliver and his useless drunk of a father disappeared without a trace. And Nova had been forced to go about her life as if a piece of her hadn’t gone missing right along with Olliver. The very best piece of her, the piece that held any time of compassion or love she might have ever had.
Now, all grown up and on her own in the world, Nova still can’t let the ghost of that boy go. The hunter in her wants to track him down and find him herself. But hunting men had only ever ended in one way with Nova and that was with their death. Something she made a great deal of money off of and was very, very good at.
One thing Nova had learned in life was that if you couldn’t do it yourself you needed the best of the best to get the job done for you.
That’s when River, Vega, and Talin walked into her life. That’s also when things took a drastic turn in Nova Crimson’s life because in order to embrace love one had to take off the beautiful mask that hid the beast and embrace the ugly on the inside.

Goodreads



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

Oh snap friends.  This book is GOOOOOD!!  Nova is a typical female that Mary writes about.  She is feisty, fearless, and full of sass.  She is not waiting for a Prince Charming.  She pays him to “Help her out” *wink wink*.  Nova hires 3 sexy men to find her childhood friend who disappeared without a sound.

River, Talin, and Vega have no clue but when they are near Nova they loose their cool and just want to be with her.  There is something about her strength these men appreciate and approve of.  When they find her friend, we learn a lot about her and Olliver’s lives.

This book is a quick read but it’s sexy as hell.  There is so much angst plus impossible amounts of twists and turns.  I am going to say if you love her Dollhouse books, Nova and Duchess would be best friends!!!

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.
