RENEGADE DRAGON by Lolita Lopez (October 4, 2016; Forever Yours eBook; $1.99; Dragon Heat Book #4)
NOTHING IS HOTTER THAN DRAGON’S FIRE
When her best friend disappears, bio-engineering student Eris Jones embarks on the quest of her life. Her search leads to a secluded estate where she experiences visions of a powerful, winged creature who’s transformed into a tall, dangerously sexy man at her touch. But the feel of his rock-hard abs and lean, sinewy arms tells Eris this is no dream . . . it’s real.
Niko Drakon is dangerous and he knows it. When the call to mate is too strong, he has no choice but to lock himself away in his basement saferoom. Otherwise, people get hurt. The moment Eris walks into his home, nothing can keep him from claiming her. However, she could also be the key to bringing down the dragons’ greatest enemy, which leaves Niko with a devastating choice: keep Eris for himself or lose her to the cause he’s served for most of his life . . .
While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.
As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.
Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.
Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues.
After the wedding of the century, Brie is whisked off to begin her honeymoon. She falls madly in love with the romance of the city, enjoying the delights of its secret BDSM society. Brie is then transported to the wickedness of the isle, where Master will play out his own private fantasies…
But Fate is a cruel mistress the two must fight. Will they survive the approaching Darkness that seeks to destroy them?
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
You have no idea how happy I was to see more of Sir and Brie. The wedding is over and now Thane has a whirlwind honeymoon full of surprises set for his Tia.
I have so many favorite scenes in this book one of which occurred on a train and another on a night boat ride. Can you see what I mean when I say they went on a whirlwind trip? Plus a bonus was being able to see a few of my favorites like Rytsar and Master Anderson.
Red Phoenix does a great job of keeping flipping the pages needing to know what will happen next. She also has a way of tossing in twists that twist my heart into a pretzel. The ending of this on has me in tears and in shock. I kept trying to turn more pages thinking if I kept trying more would appear. My heart is just a mess right now. I so excited and will have to patiently wait for A Cowboy’s Heart.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OH Thane and Brie. It seems like the wedding was eons ago. I have been a very impatient subbie wanting to know about our honeymoon with Master. Of course the honeymoon was everything a girl could have dreamed of. Our couple were loving and bonding and exploring their commitment pluuuus hoping to put a lil baby Thane in Brie’s belly made this a great and sweet read….now don’t go thinking Red turned the heat down because she soooooo didn’t but the novel was just SWEET. All of us Brie lovers know how long we have waited for this moment…this time….THIS COUPLE to be married and together in this blissful state. The book made my heart sooo full and it made me fall in love with Thane all over again. Each gesture, kindness, naughtiness and look given to Brie by him *Dreamy Sigh*
We got to see our old favorites and celebrate with them over the couple and their nuptials. I gotta tell ya, much like Brie, I was super excited over the gift our favorite Russian Dom gave the couple and my reaction was the same as her after opening and realizing she has to wait to use it…OH DANG!!!
The last couple of chapters were tough…a lot of stuff happens that can tear our happy couple apart. I was so confused much like Brie. Could Thane have done something that will forever ruin their happiness or is there an evil person who is giving our couple a hard time all because of greed.
Typical Red fashion the story ends with us going NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we need another chapter, hell even just one more paragraph…forget it……. just a sentence!!! What an Evil Mistress she really is!!! J

No matter what I do, no matter what steps I take to avoid it, I’m always playing right into somebody’s hand.
Playing the role I was destined for.
Two years have passed since her willing return to the DSD, and Wynter Reeves is no longer the timid girl who only wanted to blend in. Strong, confidant, and in control of her once debilitating powers, the world trembles at her feet while news of what she’s capable of spreads like fire among the State’s enemies. As the death toll rises and Dr. Richter further warps her into a weapon of war, Wynter is forced to embrace the daunting reality of what she’s become. With the remnants of her humanity hanging on by a shoestring, she must choose between the one sacrifice that could lead to her salvation or the dark path of destruction from which there can be no return.
Torn between two sides of a war she never asked for, will Wynter find her freedom, or will she be doomed to remain a monster forever?
Everything you could want from a Dystopian novel…and more. This picks up two years after Utraxenopia. In the first book Wynter doesn’t know exactly what is happening to her but sacrifices herself in order to save the ones she loves. After two years she has become the war weapon the DSD wanted. She has buried all her memories but things are coming to light once again. She has been saved from the DSD but only to find out that PHOENIX is not what it once was. What is the price of full control? Jenner, Ezra and Wynter are moving forward unraveling secret after secret and trying to piece this jigsaw puzzle together. What do you do when both sides are going after the same thing the same way?
“Death hangs like a fog, its presence nearly tangible in the molecules around me. In truth, I’m envious of its victims. Death would be an escape from this repetitive war and the nightmare that’s become my every waking moment.”
“Regardless of the visions—regardless of the multiple choices that stand in front of me— the only certain path for me in this life is death.”
“Are my visions set in stone? Will they happen no matter what I do? Or will they only occur because I’ve seen them? By bearing witness to the future, do I accidentally set the world on that course? Am I the cause? Or am I the effect?”
Wynter is constantly being plagued with what’s the right path and what’s the right answer. She is so back and forth on how to do the right thing. They get an unexpectd ally and unravel some incredible secrets. Cannot wait for #3!!!

After the loss of her brother, Chloe Reed left Fairville for a fresh start. Now she is back to get answers to the questions surrounding her brother’s death. But coming back home isn’t easy, especially when it’s a home filled with painful memories, a home where her life was ripped apart. However, there is someone who has been stuck in her head for a long time who makes it all easy. Her knight in shining armor who saved her life two years ago. Nick Grayson. Except this time maybe he needs saving.
Nick Grayson is back in the town of Fairville where it all started. The town that left him with nothing but guilt and regret, the town where he destroyed a family. He met Chloe on the worst night of his life. He knows he doesn’t deserve her but he can’t stay away – and neither can she.
Before you start, grab your tissues and get ready for a rollercoaster of all the feels! First, you must read the novella, Feel Me Break. Unexpectedly, Nick saves Chloe by being in the right place at the right time. Neither of them could stop thinking about each other and out of nowhere they see each other again. Fate? Maybe. But a lot happens to each of them since that one meeting that changed their lives forever. “Disappointments, crushed hopes, regrets, guilt, loneliness…” Two years is a long time…Chloe has to go back to the one place she has been trying to stay away from…Home. Then they meet each other again! This is where things get messy. Both have lots of secrets. Many things that they don’t think they can get any help with. Both are punishing themselves for events that were out of their control. Slowly their lives unravel and the undeniable attraction cannot keep them apart.
“Everything I wanted was within my reach but instead of reaching for the stars, I got burnt by the sun and came crashing down.”
“It’s like the brightness of a kaleidoscope surging, the lightness in the bones when soaring high in the sky, the warmth of the first ray of sun that kisses your skin, a swelling symphony that can mend broken hearts. A feeling that’s giddy, complete , baffling and aware, thrilling and comforting ; a kind of love that soaks deep inside your bones, and lights fire to your soul and you feel it inside and outside you all the time.”
I have to be honest, I don’t usually go for this type of story but it is one of my favorites of all time. There are so many different things going on in the story. A lot of it hit home for me and made it all the more real and touching. These two are a definate must read. But take my advice and be ready for the feels because you are going to experience it all!

INTO THE LIGHT By Aleatha Romig Publisher: Thomas & Mercer Publication Date: June 14, 2016 Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
An investigator’s search for a friend draws her into a world darker than she could have imagined.
Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.
Stella Montgomery investigates the news on the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella investigates—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.
As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price…

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW
Into the Light by Aleatha Romig
Sara, Stella, Dylan, Jacob..holy characters PHEW, I SERIOUSLY CAN’T CONTAIN MYSELF WITH THIS ONE
So… THIS BOOK SCARED THE SHIT OUTTA ME!!! This is was way out of my comfort zone fer sure, but holy hell, whadda ride! It’s bizarre, it’s scary, it’s funny (sort of), and it’s a total mindfuck! I still don’t know my own ass from a hole in the ground at this point!
Sara wakes up in a hospital/clinic kinda thing in northern Alaska as a member of The Light religious cult and she’s all banged up and blindfolded due to injuries to her eyes. She doesn’t remember anything. Not her name, not her family, and nothing about her past. I mean NOTHING! She has to rely on the people around her to fill her in on her life, her love, and her existence. Scary shit! At the same time Sara’s story is going on we have Stella who is an investigative reporter in Detroit and she’s investigating her friend, Mindy’s disappearance. Stella is ballsy and bold and won’t take no for an answer. She’ll stop at nothing to uncover the wrong doings and shady operation of Father Gabriel and The Light.
Dylan is a badass Detroit cop and he’s also Stella’s boyfriend, for now. He seems to be genuinely concerned for Stella and he’s constantly warning her off the bad neighborhoods of Detroit. It’s seems that’s where all the juicy stories come from so that’s where you’ll find Stella most days. Now Jacob is the assumed husband of Sara. He’s there when she wakes up in the clinic and tries to be there every step of the way during her recovery. He seems like a good guy, but I’m still on the fence with this one. Please Aleatha, stop messing with my mind!
The supporting character cast is vast. So many people who belong to this “Light” cult and most are not so good, at least in my opinion. Two people in particular that stands out and make me want to put Nair in their shampoo bottle and Ex-Lax in their food is Sister Lilith and Brother Timothy. They are sneaky and manipulative and I just want to burn them at the stake.
So, I know my review seems to be all over the place… but this book has my mind reeling. I don’t know who to trust. I don’t know if I love it or hate it. And I don’t know if Aleatha is slowly trying to drive me insane with this one! Who knows… all I know is the storyline is crazy good. The pacing is fast and on point. The characters are all likeable and realistic. I can’t wait to see what happens next in Away from the Dark which is coming out in (I believe) September 2016.

To feisty, relationship phobic Kate Martin’s utter surprise, she isn’t automatically dismissed as a crackpot when she finally plucks up courage to walk into a police station, revealing what she’s seen in her dreams. But instead of making a simple statement and returning to her nice, quiet life, she finds herself the center of attention from both a psychotic vampire and the ‘investigative specialist’ who would die in order to protect her.
“You’re anything but casual, Kate. I want you and I always get what I want.”
Young women are disappearing across the country and Devon, Regent Vampire Lord of the Midwest, knows his centuries old archenemy has finally resurfaced. A break in his fruitless search is provided by the discovery of a woman who can not only see the missing in her dreams, but who ends up being his Moira, his Destiny. And she couldn’t have stepped into his world at a more inopportune time, for she is now the prime target for his nemesis.
Protecting her heart would prove to be her biggest challenge.
Devon may be the sexiest, most sinfully erotic man she’s ever met, and he stirs passion in her like no one else before, but he’s an entanglement Kate does not want or need. While it becomes impossible to deny their mutual desire, once the case is solved and the missing women are found, Kate fully intends to return to her boring life, alone.
At least that’s what she thinks.
**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+
About the Author:
I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
Being a mystery author and playing cop behind my computer is certainly a safer take on the job, but I wanted firsthand experience of being out in the field. That desire had me signing up for a ride-along with a local police sergeant, and today was the day. While part of me was excited and couldn’t wait, another other part attempted to anchor me in fear.It was one in the afternoon when I walked into the station and made my way to the main receptionist—a gray-haired woman with a short bob. After explaining my reason for being there, she smiled and said, “I’m rooting for you to see some action.” I tried to smile back. She clearly had different ideas about my outing than I did. Lights and sirens, high-speed chases, shoot-outs between cops and the bad guys—no thanks!

Her powers of persuasion are the stuff of legend, and I covet her indomitable spirit. This friend of mine is a force to be reckoned with and it comes as naturally to her as breathing. Broken fridge in the condo we’re renting for our writer’s retreat? Donna’s on it. Jacuzzi malfunctioning? Donna’s on it. Leaky pipes under the kitchen sink? Donna’s on it! Not only does she manage to get the aforementioned items fixed promptly by the management, but her tenacious negotiations get our writing group an extra night’s stay for free. Booyah!This is common for Donna—not so much for someone like me. Problems with the condo? Eh, maybe I’ll let them know when I check out. Whah-whah. Not Donna, she goes about life with an unapologetic tenacity that boggles the mind and leaves others green with envy. Time to move across the country? Plans A, B, C, and on to F are in place. Need a job in the new town? Done in days. Need just the right school for the kids? Jockeying for the perfect placement performed perfectly. Where the average may waver or hesitate, Donna barrels in with both guns ablazin’! I’m yer huckleberry! Such is the gift of the courageous crusader—the heroine of the archetypes.
