synopsis

Not only does VC leader, Sloan Murphy, have to keep the peace between the human and vampire race, but he also wrangles VC Warriors in his spare time. It’s a job that could drive a saint insane, and Sloan is no saint, but insane he may be. While his Warriors find mates, he swears he will not follow in their footsteps.
Becky Spencer, his new secretary who he reluctantly employs, is set to threaten every stoic promise he’s made.
With an instant attraction that is hard to deny, she fits into his world with confident ease.
Even though Becky has sworn off men after her nasty divorce, she can’t help the desire the sexy and serious Sloan Murphy stirs in her. It isn’t until she sees how devoted he is to his job and the Warriors under his command, that her lusty feelings turn into more. Working in close quarters, they both fight the pull that grows with each passing minute.
Who will win, the secretary, the Warrior, or an attraction that just won’t go away?

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review

Sloan Murphy is the boss man of the VC Warriors as well as the oldest member of the vampire council. He does it all and if vampires could get high blood pressure and have heart attacks Sloan would be a prime candidate for both. Becky Spencer is Sloan’s new secretary that he really doesn’t want. She’s got a douche bag for a ex, a son in college that she loves, and is swearing off all men, good thing Sloan isn’t a man.
We get to see all of our favorite Warriors again; Sid and Jared are still smart asses, Damon and Duncan are still strong and true, Steve is still funny as hell and getting into trouble, Adam is still Adam, Jill is still throwing people through walls, Jax and Blaze are training the warrior wannabe’s, and Slade well he’s still my Dr. Hottie McVampire being all Dr. Buchanan.
Sloan really doesn’t want a mate, he’s too busy and he wasn’t ever supposed to find his, but he can’t stop thinking about Becky. It’s so funny watching Becky silently swearing herself off Sloan all the time when he does something to melt her panties.
Watching Sloan try to fight his feeling the she’s his mate is like watching a tree slowly fall, then BAM it happens!!
Since our last bad guy died in Jax’s book, Gableman has given us a new slimy bad guy with thugs of his very own who’s already done some damage and pissed off the Warriors!!
I love that Becky is tough and can stand up to the Warriors when she needed and that she’s has the same goofy since of humor that they do and can give it as good as they can. She fits the group and most of all she is exactly what Sloan needs.
What’s so great about Terese is all the while she’s writing about the main couple, she’s setting you up for the next one, with out letting the main couple down. The next book is gonna be awesome and I can’t wait!!!

angies review

 

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

Oh Sloan!!  I have been waiting for the boss man to fall and fall hard he did.  He TRIED to fight off the sassy redhead but he ended up falling head over heels, as we the reader did as well.

Sloan has been grumpy and moody in every book.  I mean I get it.  He is the boss and has a lot to run and control so love is not in the cards for him oooorrr so he thinks.  It’s not that he doesn’t WANT love but he knows he is moody, grumpy and busy so women don’t take kindly to being 2nd in line for his attention.

Becky is done with men.  After her failed marriage she is over men and going to switch teams…LOL then she gets this job with the VC Warriors as the boss’ secretary.  He is commanding and intense but super sexy.  The chemistry these two have in sooo well written.  They are joking and flirting but still keeping the whole boss/secretary thing going.  Mainly Sloan is pushing her away and she is hiding for fear of being rejected.

When they have their first kiss…..I was super excited and then watching Becky put him in his place…LOVED IT!  She is definitely perfect for Sloan.  All the Warriors, except for Sid because she also puts him in his place, love her as do their mates.

The buildup for the next book has me sooo excited for a few reasons….1 – new awesome bad guy. 2. -Blaze…need I say anymore???

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this from the author for an honest review.

I have been waiting for the Boss man’s book. Sloan is not happy go lucky he has so much on his plate. He doesn’t have the luxury of letting his guard down and letting loose he has a vampire race to protect.  Sloan does not have time for anything but his job he defiantly doesn’t have time for a mate.

Becky is hired to be Sloan’s secretary to help him out. She has sworn off men after her divorce even contemplating switching teams. Sloan finds out quickly Becky is not a “Yes, Sir” kind of woman. She speaks her mind and stands up to anyone no matter which Warrior it is.

I enjoyed this one the chemistry between Becky and Sloan was off the charts. Watching them fight it and the banter between them was great. I loved the side stories of the trainees and Blaze *wink* *wink*. Let me just say Jax is my warrior but Blaze is right up there with him.  The new nemesis is going to cause so big issues for the warriors. I have to say I found myself laughing at times, wanting to throat punch some newbies.

I cannot wait for the next book to find out what is going to happen next and I have to know more of Blaze and also what’s going to happen with Steve. OMG Steve I see him getting into some major predicaments in the future. I have fallen in love with series it only grows and becomes so much more. I feel invested in the lives of the warriors and their mates. I want to know more about them all.

About the Author

lana k dempsey pick

I’m Lana, a life long Texan, dog lover, and writer of sensual romance. When I say ‘sensual romance’ I mean I include real life in my stories, and real life includes sex.

I divide my time between Austin Texas and a small family ranch not far from Shiner. Shiner is the home of Shiner beer, I’ve been known to stop off at their tasting room before rolling up my sleeves to get to work on the ranch. Like many Texans I’ve got a bit of everything in me, German, Native American, and some Creole influence. Nothing like a little spice to liven things up.

Writing is much like reading, I need to feel the story in the same way a reader would. I adore leading men who are strong, but aren’t afraid to love. My goal is to fall in love as I write, it’s the only way my reader will as well.

Come with me and get to know a hot cowboy or two. It’ll be fun!

kellys review

Love Deanna’s and Roarke’s story! Get your tissues and prepare for the emotional rollercoaster ride. The history between these two is jaw dropping. Deanna and Roarke have mated, they belong to each other, forever and ever. But, is forever a myth? Roarke lost Deanna when the Scatha destroyed his fastean. She died. He buried her. She was lost forever. He was to live his immortal life alone. He sees her one night and thinks his mind is playing tricks on him. But little did he know that she is alive and has been looking for him. They are once again in each other’s life and sparks fly! And these scenes are hot, Hot, HOT! But the past and the future threaten to keep them apart. Dac Valerian is still at it as evil as ever trafficking women and children. Deanna has seen this first hand and she along with the Cynn Cruor go after him to stop him. This is a beautiful story of incredible heartbreak but also amazing love.

 

He once thought he would remain adrift forever, but she was his anchor, his safe haven. She was his strength and the love his eternal soul had searched for.

 

You can’t help but to feel the love and despair within this story. Roarke’s fastean brothers come together but then split again. There are so many other stories that are about to come to light. I’m loving the Cynn Cruor series!

#Review The Beast by @JRWard1 #BDB #Rhage

the beast over

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…

For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…

And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world…and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from…

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

The Beast by J.R. Ward
Rhage & Mary & Bitty
ALWAYS NICE GOING BACK TO CALDWELL
5 STARS

So, this is like, what? The 14th book in the series… Holy hell Ms. Ward… you just keep pumping ’em out! Well, this one kind of brought me back to when the story of the Black Dagger Brotherhood began. Not only because it’s predominately focused on Rhage and Mary, but because the writing is similar to earlier books. I like that!

Rhage has been troubled by some strange yearning feeling. He’s not acting on it just yet, but more like trying to figure out why the hell he’s been so moody and why holding a baby would make him feel all weepy and sappy. I think he knows the reason why, but since his Shellan can’t give him what he craves, he’ll do his best to make these feelings disappear. I will tell you this.. I love this side of him. He’s melting my heart all over again.

Mary is working hard at Safe Place and is paying close attention to one case in particular. A little girl by the name of Bitty. Mary is helping her with the death of her Mother and with transitioning into a life without her. I think Mary is feeling a little overwhelmed with her job and personal life crashing into one another, but she’s keeping it under control for now.

There are a few side stories brewing in The Beast that I’m sure we’ll see more of in books to come. Xcor and Layla (I believe) will be the next book to come out called The Chosenand Assail struggling with his drug addiction which I’m sure hasn’t even begun to get bad enough for him to relinquish it.

So, this series is like a staple for me. A book comes out, you get it. No questions asked. YOU BUY IT! Simple as that. I just want to go on record for saying that JR Ward’s writing style is impeccable. She not only delivers a brilliant tale, she makes you a part of it. She has from the very beginning inDark Lover. The storyline is enormously persuasive, her dialogue flows with ease and even makes you crack the fuck up at times, and her characters are commanding and spot on. I love this series!

#WOTR #Review #Shifters #Paranormal Forbidden Seduction ( Lee County Wolves book 2) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Seduction (Lee County Wolves, #2)

synopsis

Hunter Foster single-handedly ousted the shifter community after shifting in front of humans to protect a Vampire Council Warrior. With no regrets, he heads home to answer for his crime of breaking an outdated law.

Back in his town, he is faced with rogue packs challenging their alpha, his brother, as well as the woman he has spent years avoiding. Finally, he has to come to terms with what his wolf has been telling him and what he as a man has been fighting against

kristis review

What can I say about the craziness that is Hunter? He’s a wolf that makes you want to smack him and melts your panties at the same time!!
We came to know Hunter in Forbidden Hunger, but came to love when he protected Jill in A Warrior Wedding, now he’s back home to face the consequences of his actions of showing the world shifters are real.
Wow, I can’t get over how much Hunter grew from Garrett’s book being with the Warriors was soo good for him. Then again being with them would be good for anybody!!!
Emily is human living under the protection of the Lee County Pack and has been since she was a kid and she’s been in love with Hunter since he and his brothers came to town.
Love Emily, she’s such a firecracker!! She has taken shit for years and isn’t about to anymore and lets everyone, including Hunter, know it.
The interaction between those two breaks my heart and makes me happy at the same time! Finding out about Hunter’s childhood makes things understandable but it still hard, and seeing the way he is willing to do anything to make up the way he treated Emily as a teenager shows just how much he has grown.
When a group comes to town to try and take over all kinds of shit goes down and the Lee county pack kicks ass!!
I can’t wait for Marcus’s book and I hope his mate is who I think it is!!
OMG!!!! I forgot one of the best things of the book!!!!! Our resident VC Warrior comedian Steve is sent to help the pack with the Shifters and what the outing of them means with the government. Steve finding a girl he “likes” in town and the way it is dealt with is hilarious!!!
Oh! Oh! Oh!! And my hubby and sister wife Slade and Jill come to town too!!!

kellys review

What a twist of fate! The author has taken vampires and werewolves and put a new spin on them. This is not your ordinary paranormal story we are all used to. The Cynn Cruors are a species that was made using the best attributes of vampires and werewolves. Finn is one of the Cynn and has lost his parents at a young age. He is working with others to try and stop this war with the Scatha Cruors. Many years pass by and he is on the hunt for the Scatha in the middle of the night. The Scatha have their sights set on Eirene who is walking through the park by herself in the middle of the night. Finn jumps in and saves her life. And here go the fireworks! They are pulled to each other with an intense connection. One that neither of them can deny. What they don’t know is they both have a connection with the Scatha that tried to kill her. With her extraordinary computer skills and Finn’s Vampire/Werewolf blood they go on the hunt.

 

The streetlights cast shadows everywhere, but Eirene wasn’t afraid. There was something about the dark which beckoned to her and soothed her soul. It didn’t frighten her. It was as if the night knew she felt at home in it and welcomed her without question.

 

The author has this story jam packed with action and plenty of hot scenes to keep you wanting more. Ms. Cate does a great job of giving you a backdrop that you can picture perfectly in your head as well as making sure the characters all work together. You will feel like you are right in the middle of the story. This is the first book by Ms. Cate that I have read and it will not be the last.

synopsis

My time here on this world was embittered from the start. As a carrier, I had very little choice in the matter. The demon inside had been planted long before I even had a voice. From the very minute my first breath entered my body, she was coiled inside like a venomous snake. The Brotherhood wanted to control me, to keep their demon Gladius inside a host that they could groom from birth, but as soon as my mother caught on, she ripped me away from their evil clutches and kept me hidden from their reach. Under her tutelage, I had learned how to keep the monster at bay.

 

In the darkest night, my life had spiraled to a meaningless end as my time as a mortal subsided, for I had fallen under a spell woven by the vampire Demetrius. After draining me to the brink, he tossed me aside and left me to die with the first morning light. My propensity for survival he had not calculated.

 

Now, I was left with a single purpose, destroy the man who had obliterated the calm control I had kept over my life, over the monster that slithered beneath.

kellys review

This has it all! Demons, monsters, evil incarnate, vampires, cults, witches….I could go on and on. Grace is not your normal everday girl. She was born into a world where things go bump in the night. She was born to bear a demon in her body and soul. The only thing is she was raised to be able to keep the demon at bay. She works and tries to stay off the radar to keep away from The Brotherhood. Their only mission is to bring Gladius, the demon inside of Grace, to the surface. She is enamoured by Demetrius and lets her guard down. He turns her to a vampire and leaves her to die. She is found by the Night Order who want to enlist her help to keep demons and vampires at bay. She is brought into a new world and is no longer on her own. She is with other vampires and mortals who want to help her rid the demon inside. Of course there is a love story here. She has been on her own for so long that receiving help from anyone and having any luck in gaining her trust has been incredibly difficult. She has things she must do to keep her sanity an one is going after the man that did this to her and to rid the demon.

 

Pity was for the weak, and that was something I never considered myself. I had been a fighter most of my life. From the time I was a child, I had learned that the world would never make it easy for me. I had to push against the machine if I wanted to survive, and I had pushed so hard that I carried battle scars, some visible, but many more that were not.

 

From the moment I was born, life was a series of missteps in directions that twisted and curled into roads where the streetlamps never seemed to work. Darkness had followed me like a harbinger, circiling around until I had no other recourse but to embrace the path that was paved in front of me.

 

The story has great characters with so many different personalities. I absolutely love paranormal and this has a great twist on something that can seem so overdone. Grace’s struggle is real and you feel it to the core. It is a fast paced read with lots of action and some hot scenes. A must read!

 

about the author

Ever since childhood, I have enjoyed reading stories as an escape from life. When I was a teenager I started to write my own stories that kept me entertained whenever I ran out of books to read. When I was accepted into Illinois Summer School for the Arts in my Junior year of High School, I knew I wanted to become a writer. I graduated from Illinois State University in December 1999 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and began my teaching career, hoping to find moments to write in my free time.

 

After seven years of teaching, I decided to focus on my writing and made the decision to put my teaching years behind me so that I could create the stories I had always dreamed of. I am now happily married and a stay at home mom. I try my best to master the art of multitasking to get everything accomplished and write in any spare moment I can find.

synopsis

 

He’s dangerously sexy, insufferably arrogant, rude, and complicated as hell, yet what he reveals to her makes it impossible to stay angry and she can’t stop her growing desire for him.

 

Lane, the younger twin of two powerful and sexy vampires, has always walked in his brother’s shadow. And for good reason. There are monsters that plague his mind. Demons that once destroyed him. Broke him. Now, his desire for Vanessa torments him, igniting those revenants whenever he thinks of her. He’s desired her for months, but he hates what she is—what she stands for. Can the witch he loathes be the one to tame his demons, or will she only send him farther into hell?

 

He wants to claim her, own her until he discovers something about her he has no choice but to admire, and when she lets down her guard, all he wants to do is comfort her—love her.

 

Vanessa has her own fears to conquer. A witch by birthright, she’s powerful yet vulnerable. How the hell will she be able to help Lane defeat his demons if she can’t overcome her own?

 

They rock each other’s worlds, but when evil comes knocking at their door, someone will need to die or they’ll lose each other forever.

kellys review

 

Rocked my soul! A rockin’ test of wills! This is Lane’s and Vanessa’s story…and what a story it is. Both of them are incredibly hard headed and always at each other’s throats. Although, they secretly like each other. *wags eyebrows* They both think the other doesn’t like them because of being a vampire or a witch but they share a connection that they cannot deny. This is an absolute test of wills between the two and the rollercoaster of emotion that follows is intense to say the least. Both start to bring the other out of their shell then all hell breaks loose. Vanessa and Lane are both very strong characters and watching them clash and come together is inspiring. This story is sweet, erotic, and satisfying.

 

He nudged me to the side and stepped around me then picked up a bottle of wine and left me standing there in the cold. Dazed. Aroused. Wanting. And rocked to the core.

 

We both needed to make some confessions, and maybe because we were both damaged, it was better to make them to each other.

 

I liked my women willing and loving. Though a scream every now and then was just fine, as long as she was screaming my name from the pleasure I was giving her.

 

We have followed these characters in Tempted By a Vampire and Captivated By a Vampire. They can be read as standalones but to truly appreciate these characters I suggest you read from the beginning. The author is incredible at making these characters evolve in a way you can’t rip away from. They go through the same emotions most people go through and therefore make them more real (even though they are vampires and witches, lol!). This series gets better and better as it continues. Rock on Susan Griscom! I’ve been rocked!

Excerpt:

We, Jaz and I, only found out last night. She wanted me to know it was why
she hadn’t visited me here or met either of you. It’s not that she didn’t want to, it was just she
couldn’t and hadn’t told me why before.” He turned to Jaz. “I think it was her way of letting us
know she was okay with us. Or maybe it was an apology. Again, I am not really sure. I’m just
glad she finally told us. Anyways, that is why we have to go to her instead of her coming to us.”
“I’m not sure I like the idea of going anywhere called the Nether Realm. What if I get
stuck there?”
Logan snorted softly. “You won’t, baby. You used to visit my mother’s garden and me
often. Besides, I won’t let anything more happen to you. I should have never let you leave alone
last night. I should have stayed with you. Maybe if I had, none of this would be happening now.
Can you ever forgive me?”
Jasmine moved over to him. “There is nothing to forgive. I have a feeling I am pretty
stubborn when I want to be. If I left alone because I wanted you to have more time with your
family, I doubt there would have been anything to stop me from leaving alone.” She moved
around the kitchen and poured herself a cup of chicory coffee, inhaling the rich, aromatic scent
before cautiously taking a sip of the velvety rich beverage.
“Hah. You are so right. Always have been,” Tyler readily agreed, then looked up as he
sensed an approach to the door. “Your grandmother has arrived. You ready to go?”
“Mostly. Why can’t you come again?”
“Because I’m not welcome there,” Tyler replied as he moved to open the door for
Archanidou before she ever had the chance to knock.
“Because you are human or because you are alive?” Jaz questioned as she watched him
move to the door. She was surprised when she saw Archanidou moving towards the steps. She
knew he said she was here, but how did he know?
Spiderwoman glided in, greeting the three of them with a “Blissful morning.”
Tyler shut the door behind her and responded to Jaz’s question. “I’m alive, but it’s not the
reason I am not welcome there. I cannot go because of a truce the realm I come from has with
the Nether Realm. We stay out of each other’s territory.”
“So you are not human?” Jaz asked, astounded, though considering all the revelations of
the past few minutes, she really shouldn’t have been. Yet, somehow she felt like Alice who fell
through the looking glass to a world which was topsyturvy
from what it should be.
Tyler shook his head. “No.”
“What are you, then?”
Tyler looked at Archanidou, almost as if asking permission to tell her. Archanidou
nodded to him and waited.
“I am Fae.”
Silence.
“What is that? Like a fairy?”
“Yes.”
“Where are your wings?”
“They can only be seen in my realm.”
Silence.
“Can you fly?”
“Only in my realm.”
“What realm are you from? What is it called?”
“Faefardom.”
Silence.
“How did we meet?”
Again, Tyler looked over at Archanidou who answered for him. “You were born there.
That is where my daughter, your mother, Fern, laid you.”
“Laid me?”
“You are my child’s child,” Archanidou said patiently. “Spiders lay eggs. And it is
because of the egg that you are so sought after, which is why you live in a warded house, and
why you grew up in Faefardom. It was to protect you.”
“Protect me from what? This is all so confusing.” Jaz rubbed her forehead. “Does this
have anything to do with Logan’s mom?”

#Review – Neverland Evermore (Never Ever Series Book 1) by Sarah J. Pepper

30520407

 

synopsis

Neverland has a way of breaking people. It corrupts souls. It destroys hope. The evil festering inside it brings out the darkness in our hearts and leaves us worse than dead. No good has ever come from it. Ever.

 

It is where I was born.

 

Therefore, darkness is all I know. Corruption is in my bones. So when I see him, I mean to win his heart and then break him. I mean to lure him to my arms and then destroy him. But it is his intentions and his wicked smile that deter me…at least until a lost soul from my past catches up with us.

 

My world ignites into flames. My love’s sinks to the depths of the sea. We are from two different worlds that overlap for a brief moment in time. But it is that moment which carries me forward. It is that moment in which he lives in the past. It is that moment in which I embrace my true nature and seek vengeance against those responsible for feeding his hand to that godforsaken crocodile.

kellys review

What an incredible story! Where do I even begin?! Pirates, mermaids, Davy Jones’ locker, and Neverland….with a heart aching love story. **sigh** In this story nothing is what you know. Peter Pan is the bad guy and Neverland is a place of entrapment for evil souls. Bell floats into the path of Captain James Hook’s ship where she is pulled on board. Having a woman on board is bad luck but James can’t help himself. From here on out things get really crazy. You are brought right into the present with extreme chaos but the way the author unfolds the story leading up to the present is intricately beautiful. An unlikely relataionship is formed between Bell and James and the journey they go through together will make your heart swell and ache at the same time.

 

“Towering over her, I smirked, “You take me for a fool.” The truth showed in her grin and the spark that flashed in her eyes. “I tend to keep foolish company.” “What do you mean by that?” I questioned. “That I’m trouble and enjoy a flirtatious bout with danger.” she whispered.

 

“But she will attract evil. I’m certain.” I smirked, “Perhaps she is attracted to evil, which is why she found me.” “You’ll be the death of us all,” he snarled.

 

“Mermaids? Immortality? Bell was luring me into a world I never knew and damn it if I wasn’t compelled. Every dark secret about her made me gravitate to her more, but her latest declaration unhinged me in a way that truly startled me. Why? Because it made me crave her more— something I didn’t think was possible. She was the epitome of true power in a beautiful form, yet she somehow kept her humanity, her soul. She was a glorious creature, a tigress who was wildly attracted to immoral men— men like me. While it wasn’t unusual for dames to be fascinated by bad boys, I wanted to know her exact reasons why. I wanted to know every reason why. I needed to know all of her secrets.”

 

There is so much trouble to find in this story. So alluring, adventurous, and beautiful. I cannot wait to continue the adventures!

 

 

about the author

5762464-1

Award Winning Author, Sarah J. Pepper, specializes in fantasy and paranormal romance. She unveils the beauty of love in her new adult/young adult novels. Her works envelope dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit? www.sarahjpepper.com
