#WOTR20 – #Review – Soul Redemption (Death’s Kiss Book 2) by C.J. Pinard

Soul Redemption (Death's Kiss Book 2) by [C.J. Pinard, Book Cover by Design]

Faced with unthinkable changes, Nolan Bishop seeks to come to grips with his new version of mortality. While his relationship with Charity Sheridan was already rocky, he’s now facing a whole new set of challenges as they continue to try to find a balance to the love that has just begun to blossom between them. Meanwhile, her twin Eva has violent vengeance on the mind, and the succubus won’t settle for anything less than Nolan’s ultimate demise. Heading back to New Orleans at the request of the BSI, Nolan will have to face Joel Reichert, the old vampire whose oldest friend is now dead because of him. But is Joel really an enemy?

A new, young friend in the Rebel Riders group gives Nolan a much needed reprieve from the stress of his new way of life. While Archie and the Riders don’t really know the full extent of Nolan’s new problems, he continues to hide the horrific things he has to do in order to stay alive. Will Nolan come out better than he was before Eva tried to take his soul, or will he crack and break under the pressure once he realizes what the succubus has really done to him?

“You better become good with weird, dude, because weird is the new normal where you’re headed.” I couldn’t have said it better. 

Soul Redemption starts right where Soul Rebel left off. Nolan and Charity haven’t had much time together and they are still learning about each other. Nolan is not feeling like himself. He thought they broke the Succubus curse, but maybe not. As Nolan is trying to figure this out, he goes on a ride with the Rebel Riders to check out some moonshine making vampires in the bayou. He finds that he has some things in common with Kovah, one of the Rebel Riders. Between dealing with the possibility of having vampire traits and having a new love with Charity, Nolan can’t seem to catch a break. After another unexpected trip to New Orleans, this time with Kovah, Eva rears her ugly head to Charity and then things get crazy. 

Very similar to the first story, this is fast paced with great camaraderie for some fun times. There is never a dull moment with this story. I did not see the turns that the story took and it kept me on my toes. The banter between Kovah and Nolan is great and I absolutely loved being able to get to know Kovah better. And the end! OMG the end! I just can’t even begin to give you a hint on how this ends without giving it away. By the time the story was over I was beside myself and in need of more!

#WOTR2020 – #Review – Soul Rebel (Death’s Kiss Book 1) by C.J. Pinard

Soul Rebel (Death's Kiss Book 1) by [C.J. Pinard, Book Cover by Design]

A vampire took his soul. He wants it back.

When 21-year-old Nolan Bishop meets a seductive redhead at a dark club in downtown Shreveport, little does he know that his soul will be gone as soon as she leaves the club. It doesn’t take Nolan long to realize that Eva Sheridan, the succubus who now invades his dreams, has taken something from him. Through the underground network of the supernatural in New Orleans, he discovers he has seven days to destroy Eva before he turns into a sinister and feral vampire himself.

In a race against all that is holy, Nolan encounters Eva’s identical twin, Charity, who is still very much a human. As he begs for Charity’s help in locating Eva, she realizes that his utmost desire is to kill her sister. Although Eva is a relentless succubus, Charity doesn’t want her sister to die. Now, it’s up to Nolan to determine his own future. While Charity and Nolan grow closer, he struggles with destroying her sister. Can he choose between his humanity and his heart in a mere seven days?

Soul stealing succubus! I love this story! It was a fast, fun and steamy read. I absolutely recommend it! We start with Nolan, our super cute, motorcycle riding, tatted up, good guy that is ready to pop the question to his girlfriend. Nooooooo! Here is mistake number one. When he discovers that it’s a mistake, his friends finally talk him into checking out a new club. Here is where things go badly… Nolan is completely enraptured by Eva, the hot chick in VIP. They spend a little time together, nothing crazy, and then he is sent on his way. Then things really go wonky. He is approached by the supernatural police and is told that Eva is a succubus and has taken his soul. He has seven days to kill her to stop from becoming a vampire. Wow! This sucks! Then all sorts of crazy starts. He is such a great guy that he can’t even think about killing someone, let alone the succubus that essentially stole his life. Ok, so I loved that this was about a succubus. Not just a regular vampire with a blood exchange, blah, blah, blah. A succubus has been thrown in and she has a TWIN! The plot gets juicy! Nolan ends up enlisting Eva’s twin, Charity, to help him figure out a way to stop the change. Charity is human and loves her sister. She wants to believe that her sister wants to do right. But as you can imagine, Eva is just a succubus with no soul. Nolan and Charity go to New Orleans and encounter many different “people” along with Eva. What I love is that you can see the romance blossoming between Nolan and Charity. Two people that you can just see are meant for each other even though everything is going to hell in a handbasket and very quickly. Oh! And Archie, Nolan’s boss, has a big secret revealed, so you have to read this! It will all make sense, promise. This review feels really jumbled for me… and probably for you… but it’s because there are so many things that happen, and they happen quickly, that suck you in from start to finish. I can’t give anymore spoilers. What I can tell you is that once you start this story, you won’t be able to put it down. It is fast paced, action packed, with a super sweet love story weaved throughout. I have already one-clicked the second book. What can I say? I couldn’t wait!

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – C.J. Pinard

C.J. Pinard

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I’m C.J. Pinard… I write paranormal and contemporary romance and work a crazy, insane day job that I can’t quit. But very soon, I’ll be retiring early! Until then, though, I’ll continue to stay up late at night writing my stories.

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

Music is a must. I prefer to write at night when it’s dark and quiet. My go-to snack is caramel and cheddar popcorn and vodka. (Don’t ask, it works)

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The atmosphere! Everyone is always so happy and excited to be there. The positivity lifts my spirits and fills my soul with happiness.

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

Stephen King. I’d pick his brain for hours (until he threatens to kill me).

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?

Oh, hell no. I’m a binge writer. I put up a preorder then write the book in like two weeks.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

The day a reader posted that they tattooed my name/book on their body and tagged me in a post to show it off. I almost passed out. It’s kinda tied with the day I hit the USA Today bestseller list with my Enchanted Immortals box set. Also, almost passed out.

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

Why people always ask this question? LOL! Kovah Soul Seeker is a pretty awesome book, I must say. It was supposed to be a novella about a character from my Death’s Kiss series… I kept getting messages asking if the guy was gonna get his own book, so I obliged, thinking, “Eh, I’ll just write a novella about him.” 80,000 words later, the dude would NOT shut up in my head. It’s my longest book to date.
