#WOTR19 #YA #Pararnomal #Fae – Portal through the Veil by Miranda Lynn

Portal Through the Veil

An heir, set to rule over all of Faery, on one condition- that she marry and take a King to rule at her side. Her father is determined to see her wed to a prince of his choosing, however, Tatianna has other plans. Plans that don’t involve tying the knot. What this princess didn’t anticipate, was the unexpected guest to what was, essentially, her engagement festival.

Kallan, prince of the dark court- was not only unexpected, but uninvited. He knew it would be a risk to show up. Not only was he a dark fae, but a human as well. It would all be worth it though to see her again. When light meets dark- and two worlds collide- secrets, lies and betrayals are exposed.

Luckily, fate, magic and a bit of divine intervention will help to bring balance back to the land of Faery. No matter the cost.

Goodreads

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

When Miranda asked if I would be interested in this book, I was a little bit hesitant because YA isn’t really my thing but TBH, I dug it.  But I also didn’t think it had a YA feel about it.  LOL!!  There wasn’t any high school drama and all that jazz.  This was about a princess….scratch that….and independent, free thinking, strong willed princess who didn’t need ANY man to rule with her.  Nope *pops the P*

However, she must have a King just like a King would have to have a Queen in order to rule the land.  Well our girl Tatianna is none to thrilled and even more angry when she finds out her dad is forcing her to court some Fae he finds suitable for her.  UHM Nope our girl is not happy until……Kallan strolls into the party uninvited.  Then she is kinda flipping her hair and giving him the “eye”.

The couple are drawn together, and the story begins to fly at this point.  We learn there is someone who is causing trouble for Tatianna in her family’s kingdom plus Kallan’s kingdom has suffered as well.  The couple need to work together to figure out what to do and who they can trust to solve the trouble.

The story was a really quick read.  I sat down and devoured it.  I love how strong-willed Tatianna was and at the same time how Kallan seemed impressed with the strength she has.  Plus he was impressed with how she was willing to listen to what he told her vs what she know about The Dark Court.

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

 

 

#Review #NewRelease – Shenanigans (Pretense and Promises Book 2) by Jade C. Jamison

Shenanigans (Pretense and Promises Book 2)

Conor Hammond is desperate.

Well, not quite—but desperate enough to do something potentially stupid. His high school reunion is right around the corner and, now that he’s a wealthy business owner, all those girls who used to diss him will want to hit on him—and he needs a buffer. His assistant Morgan Tredway’s going to help out by playing his fiancée for the weekend.

But then Conor notices how nice Morgan’s legs look in those red heels…and Morgan remembers how she used to have a crush on her boss. That doesn’t stop them from telling themselves that these shenanigans are just distractions. It’ll be back to business as usual come Monday morning.

Except the emotions feel real.

When Conor’s propositioned by the ultimate trophy girlfriend and Morgan’s ex comes crawling back to her, will they look back on their weekend romance as just a fling or seal the deal?

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

Mo and Connor are a great couple…..errr…..a great boss/assistant couple.  They have a great vibe and a wonderful ability to bounce off each other.  When Connor hangs with is buddy Brock and follows his “Fake Fiancée” idea, he soon finds out not only are they compatible in the boardroom but the bedroom too!!

Connor is the nerd turned stud in his high school class.  He doesn’t want to deal with the gold diggers, so he asks his friend Morgan to save him from the claws and a possible future ex-wife.  Morgan is angry and hurt over being dumped by her ex, so she agrees because she she is getting paid and new shoes outta the deal…can’t hurt right???

As the weekend goes forward, Connor and Mo start to feel the sizzle of chemistry when they both see each other as more then just a boss/assistant.  They both start to wonder…..what if.  When Connors dream girl from high school makes her intentions knows, Morgan has to keep her lips zipped because this is Connors dream girl….or is it???  Connor has always lusted over Raquel and when she throws herself at him, he is conflicted because she isn’t Morgan!!!

I loved the banter between Morgan and Connor.  Its obvious they enjoy each other’s company and personalities.  I liked seeing this friendship cross that line to MORE and then struggle with wondering if they made a mistake.

Side Note – I liked how the epilogue was written.  The style was GREAT for this couple and story!!

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

 

#NewRelease #Revew #Shifter #EndOfSeries #TalonPack Forever Broken (Talon Pack Book 9) by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the finale to the award-winning Talon Pack series from NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan sets, the final Brentwood must find his mate as the war with the Aspens comes to a close.

Cheyenne Liles has watched all of her friends mate into the Talon Pack and have their lives changed forever, one by one. She’s stood back, helpless to assist in the war with a rival Pack. But just when she thinks her time with the Talons is over and believes she should move on with her human life, the Aspen Pack Alpha takes matters into his own hands, altering her fate far more than a single mate mark ever could.

Max Brentwood used to be the smiling one, the only Brentwood who was somehow able to save his soul during the last Alpha’s reign. But his life was irrevocably changed one fateful day on the battlefield, and he was never the same again. Suddenly, Max is forced to face his future and make a choice when Cheyenne comes into danger: let fate decide, or watch his world crumble around him.

The shifters of this world have fought demons, humans, and themselves. Now, it’s time to find out who they truly are as the war between the Packs ends, and the moon goddess finally takes a stand.

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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I hate when a series I loves ends, but Carrie Ann Ryan knows how to end on a awesome note.

The Talon pack has been through so much since the start of the series and have only gotten stronger.

Max Brentwood is one member that has been through more than one person can possibly go through and stay sane.  He is the family member that was not blessed by the Moon Goddess with a high position of power in the pack and he was perfectly fine with that.  He was the happy brother/cousin after the hell that they went through as kids, however none he’s not so happy go lucky anymore.

Cheyenne Liles has learned that there is more than just humans in this world, it also has shifters and witches, crazy yes but she can handle it.  She has also watched has her three best friends find love in that supernatural world and as shifters and witches they will all have to watch her the human grow old and fade away and she doesn’t want that so she starts pulling away from them.

Omg, so much happens in this story and it all starts with a kidnapping and attempted murder and ends with a blessing from the Moon Goddess that changes things forever.

Max and Cheyenne have always been sort of drawn together, watching the others from across the room whenever they are together.  

I totally love that Max, who has been through so much, found his mate in Cheyenne they totally make sense together.

Together they have to  do what they can do find a end to the psychotic Alpha of the Aspen pack Blade.

Ryan has done it once again, wrote a beautiful love story within a story that has a ending of old ways and the beginning of new.  That has a hint of danger, a touch of mystery, a lot of passion.

I am sad to see the end of the Brentwood family, glad to see that they finally get the happiness that they deserve, and so very pumped to know that we have not seen the last of the shifter world from the mind of Carrie Ann Ryan!!!!

#WOTR19 #Paranormal #Review #NewSeries – Lobos by Teresa Gabelman and Victoria Danann

Teresa Gabelman is our attending author

The Three Rivers Pack has been deeply embedded in Kerrville commerce and society for generations. They own businesses and hold government offices, including that of sheriff. But the influx of retirees and well-to-do building second homes in the Hill Country has squeezed the shifters for room to run.

The only answer is relocation to a less populated locale and that will require making a deal with the pack that holds that territory. The alliance struck by the two alphas is blood seal, a political mating between the Lobos alpha’s daughter and the Three Rivers alpha’s son. It’s the perfect solution that benefits both tribes.

Except nobody asked Fleet Ryder and Dani Alvarez if they were willing. And they aren’t.

I received this book for an honest review.

Say what! Who does arranged marriages anymore well it looks like Fleet and Dani’s fathers do. Fleets pack needs more room to roam and Dani’s pack needed financial help. So the fathers declared their children would be mated to tie the packs together.

As you can imagine Dani and Fleet did not take kindly to this arrangement. Fleet and his boys go on a road trip to find out more about Dani and her pack. After Dani and Fleet meet they come up with a plan to run away to get to know one another.

This is where things pick up Dani and Fleet try to fight their arranged mating. They learn more about each other. While on their road trip they found another pack member believes Dani was his and doesn’t want to let her go. Needless to say Fleet was not happy someone was after his mate.

I liked getting to know Dani and Fleet plus all their friends. I have to say I am intrigued to find out more about this group of friends.

#WOTR19 – The Vampire’s Genie (The Wish Series Book 1) by Teresa Gabelman

The Vampire's Genie (The Wish Series Book 1)

One would think most genies have it made, but that’s not the case for Janelle. She hates the outfit, hates the lamp, and overall hates the gig. It’s not until hot vampire Dean Frye steals her out from under her current master’s nose that she thinks maybe being a genie has its benefits.

Dean has one thing and one thing only on his mind when he sends his friend on a quest to seek out a genie lamp. Freedom. Plain and simple. Then he meets Janelle, his genie, and realizes that granting every wish her heart desires is the only wish he wants.

Goodreads

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

What happens when your friend brings home a genie lamp? well you rub it of course. That is exactly what Dean did but he did not expect anything to happen but when the beautiful Janelle appeared he was love struck.

Both Dean and Janelle just want to be free of their situation. Dean is a vampire who just wants to be able to walk in the sun light. Janelle no longer wants to be a genie who is expected to please and grant wishes all her days.

Janelle landed in the right man’s hands for once but can Dean keep her or will her past master claim her back.

This was a quick read packed with humor.

#WOTR19 #AuthorSpotlights – Brandy Slaven

Brandy Slaven

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hiya, I’m Brandy Slaven. I live in Tennessee and am obsessively in love with RH, 80’s everything, zombies, and post apocalyptic anything.

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

I can write literally ANYWHERE. I even wrote once laid back in a dentist chair. No lie! I guess it really depends on the day. In an ideal situation, I’d love to be in a coffee shop/bookstore with a vanilla latte at hand.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

This is my first one. So far my favorite thing has been the awesome new people that I’ve met.

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

Hmmm, that’s a hard one because I have so many! Besides some of my favorite RH authors that I’ll be meeting soon, I guess I’d have to go with Sherrilyn Kenyon or Charlaine Harris. I seriously love their books!

What author would you love to write with?

Well, I’ve already got some upcoming co-authored projects. They are definitely going to be hard to beat.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I don’t know if I have a favorite per say. One of my favorites, I’d have to tell you a little back story. My very first book, Of Death And Darkness, started as project to help me during a time when I was struggling. I never expected to get it published. I just wrote because it was a serious stress reliever. It took me 5 long years to finish it. I only got serious within that last year because my dad passed away the year before. He was my biggest supporter and I always promised that I’d try to do something with it. When he passed, I made it a point to finish it not just for him but for me too. Then I found out about self publishing through Amazon. I was so nervous pushing that publish button, especially considering I knew NO ONE in the book world yet. When the reviews started coming in for it and I found out that people actually liked it…it’s an indescribable feeling. I know now that my writing sounds so much better, so they are being rewritten as we speak. But, just to know that there are people out there that loved it was enough to keep me writing past that point. I’ll always be grateful for the people who have been there since day one and the ones who have come along since.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #RH #MM #MMF #MFM- New Years Surprises by Brandy Slaven

New Year Surprises

If there’s one thing Imogene loves more than donuts it’s her two best friends. When a planned trip for the three of them goes awry, never in a million years did she think that it would end with her in the arms of five sexy strangers. Men who are more than willing to prove that she’s more than her own opinion of herself. A week alone in a remote cabin in the mountains puts more at risk than they all realize. Will they be able to keep their hands, and more importantly, hearts to themselves? Especially as the New Year brings them a surprise none of them are expecting.

Goodreads

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

“WHAT did you say!!!???  Heck Yes!!!” when Brandy asked if I wanted to read this was my reply!!!  I mean RH was awesome but then she threw in some MMF, MM and MFM…..This was like a dream read for any woman!!

Imma is a girl going through some serious stuff.  She needs her friends, but they seem to have forgotten the whole “Girl Code” and for different reasons they cancel on a girl trip which is totally not cool.  Anyway, Imma packs up and heads to the mountains hoping it will recharge her broken soul to find out it has been double rented…rented to her and her friends AND to 5 hotties who are giving her the hungry eye once overs ALL THE TIME!

Imma and the guys (Evan, Ollie, Wes, Thatcher and Murphy) convince Imma to just hang with them for the time.  Well friends that is when everything gets interesting.  Let’s just say Imma has some bed hopping fun and a LOT of sex happens between her and the mens!!  *wink wink*  I won’t ruin it because holy hot tamale do I need to go to church and confess the lust in my heart with reading this book……but yeah its good reading!!

The end of the story we have some conflict and Imma needs to be reminded of who she belongs with and how families care for each other.  If you love Brandy like I do, then this novella will be a great little ditty to tide you over until her next book hits our ereaders.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.
