#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight – Ellis Leigh

Ellis Leigh

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I’m Ellis Leigh, USA Today bestselling author of paranormal and sci-fi romance. I like fur, fangs, and long walks through creepy forests late at night.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I think the later books become harder mostly because, as authors, we build entire universes in our minds. All those details–all the foreshadowing that happens along the way–has to be logged and tracked somehow. The farther along a book is in a series, the more re-reading of past books I have to do to jog my memory.

What comes first? The plot or characters

Characters. Always. Every books starts as a GIF in my head of a particular moment in time. That moment tends to spotlight the overall goal of that character. The character profile fills in from that, then the plot builds around that moment. Character is always primary, though.

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

I met her! I adore Kelley Armstrong, and I was lucky enough to meet her at the RWA convention in New York. Her Women Of The Otherworld series inspired me to revisit my love of paranormal romance, and I am forever a fan of hers for that.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

How do you build your characters to have such depth and personality? As a genre skipper, how much reading do you do in the genre you’re writing in at the moment? Can I have Jeremy Danvers, please?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

All of it. Every single aspect because it affects marketing and visibility. I may want to name a paranormal romance some super simple name, but I have to be able to show a reader what’s inside at a glance. Cover, title, subtitle, and blurb are vital to a book’s success for sure.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I was at a reader convention once, standing in line at the coffee shop at like six in the morning in my pajamas and hoodie. Picture it–no makeup, messy hair, bleary eyed. I’m talking fresh out of bed with no shame. It was at that moment a reader of mine came running across the lobby SCREAMING my name. She was so excited to meet me that I couldn’t even be mad when she snapped a selfie with me. I wanted to, and I’m sure somewhere out there is a horrible picture of me trying hard to smile pre-coffee, but she was a gift. I will forever be grateful for that moment of being seen.

What is your definition of success?

I don’t think I have one for myself. I always have goals–financial, production, noticeability–but nothing I could say is a direct component of “success.” Ask me in another five years.

Grit, Book 1 JM Walker – 
From Book 1: *Can be read as a standalone novel*

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He refuses to fall in love.
He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.
Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.
Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

Greyson by JM Walker – 

From Book 1: Confusion. Lust. Fear. Passion.

It started the moment she passed out in my arms.

Seduction. Vile. Depraved. Desire.

She couldn’t remember her past but looked to me like I was her future.

My walls were built. My heart was cold. My emotions vacant.

After being alone for five years with only my motorcycle club at my side, she was who I had been searching for. The one I had needed all along to light up the darkness surrounding my life. Just when I thought I had her, just when I thought I could finally allow myself that happiness I didn’t think I deserved. She was ripped from my hands…

One Ride, Book 1 by Chelsea Camaron – 

From Book 1: Their forbidden attraction couldn’t be denied.

Can one ride turn lust into love?

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger has never been in danger before. As the only child of Roundman, Haywood’s Hellions motorcycle club president, she has always been protected.

When a threat to Roundman’s club gets too close to his precious doll, he does the only thing he can think of—sends her away until his enemy is in the ground.

Talon “Tripp” Crews lives his life from one ride to the next. As the Catawba Hellions motorcycle club chapter president, he doesn’t hesitate to answer Roundman’s call for help.

One ride across the country sounds simple enough.

One ride tempted by a forbidden desire is far from easy.

One ride changes everything for everyone.

No Mercy, Book 1 by Mary Martel – 

From Book 1: “Do you know what the funny thing about Mercy is?” Cap asked her. Before she could answer he spoke again, “It can be a cold, hard, unforgiving bitch.”

Duchess runs The Dollhouse. An old, two story mansion she recently purchased in an attempt to create a safe home for herself and her girl Franky, something neither of them have ever had. A safe home is not all The Dollhouse is though. The downstairs is a bar and the upstairs is home to something much seedier. A modern day brothel. A brothel Duchess is the proprietress of.
Duchess is a cold, hard, tough as nails woman with a murky past. Her whole life revolves around taking care of her girls and keeping them safe.
Life at The Dollhouse is irrevocably altered when its sole neighbor, the Mercy MC, strolls through the front doors of the bar.

Claiming His Fate book 1 by Ellis Leigh

From Book 1: This book owns me with its strong writing, wit, and steamy scenes. ~We So Nerdy

A shifter battling his wolf instincts. A woman living a life of obligation and lies. A moment of fate interrupted by danger.

Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the ass, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst—and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated Alpha—his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.

Roadkill, book 1 by Michel Prince and Wren McCabe

From Book 1: On a dirt road in Nevada, a woman lay dying.

In book one of Montana Steel MC: Josh ‘Red’ Luke, Montana Steel MC Nomad, wants to go home. It doesn’t have anything to do with running from something as much as the need to find his place in the world. As a former Army medic, he used his GI bill to become a skilled surgeon, which fills his necessity to help. Together with the training from the military to never leave a man behind, and his soul feels almost whole.

The woman struggles to find her own name and the reason for being brutally beaten and left for dead. However, the memories come in hard, harsh bursts and the struggles to figure who she was, leaves her reeling and landing in the violent MC world where her natural instinct to run come out. One consecration the lack of memory fortified her—was to discover a thing she never gave a chance in the past—love.

When those who caused the hurt find out their target is alive, but under the fog of amnesia, they set out to finish the job. With her life in danger, the safest place is in Red’s arms. He can heal the woman’s body, but can Red convince her there’s room in her heart for him?

#WOTR20 – #Review – Savage Surrender (The Devil’s Dires #1) by Ellis Leigh

Savage Surrender (The Devil's Dires #1)

There’s no escaping a Dire Wolf on the hunt…

Feared by even his own kind, Bez of the Dire Wolf shifters knows exactly how to succeed in any battle. Even if that means racking up collateral damage along the way. A simple mission into the swamplands to save a teenage wolf shifter should have been an easy track and retrieval for a man with his training, but nothing comes easy when the fates get involved.

In one night, Omega Sariel went from a free, single shewolf to a captive with a teenage girl to watch over and a couple of guards intent on making her life miserable…what little is left of it. Then a soldier with ice in his eyes walks in, and the mating call begins. He’s too tough, too harsh, too murderous…but when your life hangs in the balance, a lethal fighter in your corner is better than battling alone. Especially one who isn’t afraid to get a little dirty with her.

Two kidnapped women, one dangerous soldier unknowingly about to come face-to-face with fate, and a monster set on destroying everything in its path. In the world of the Dire Wolves, a retrieval is a simple mission for the unit of soldiers that make up their pack. But this time, a single glance blows simple right out of the swamp and forces Bez to make his stand alone.

One soldier, one fight…one chance at forever.

Love this story! It was truly captivating right from the beginning! I listened to the audiobook version of the story. The narrator was the perfect fit for Savage Surrender and absolutely holds ALL of your attention. This is a shorter book but it does not stop. There is no down time. It will consume you! The POVs go back and forth between Sariel, a kidnapped Omega wolf, and Bez, of the Dire Wolves. Bez is put on a mission to retrieve a kidnapped, teenage Omega wolf but when he finds her, there are two Omegas! He has to go against normal protocol to go back for the other Omega but there is a problem….they are mates! *wags eyebrows* So now there is this instant mating bond and both of them are having a hard time concentrating. Bez, going against every protocol and saves both Angelita, the teenage Omega, and Sariel, his mate and other Omega. There are so many things going on from the time they meet, escape, and get to the safe house. As they are able to assess the situation better, they find that the enemy has something else up their sleeve…and it is soooooo bad! As the enemy makes their way toward them, Bez and Sariel have to keep their heads about them and not give into the mating as it will make them extremely vulnerable. But once the fight happens, look out! If you listen to the book or read it, it will consume you and you will not be able to put it down. I can’t wait to continue this journey!

#WOTR30 #Review #PAranormal #Shifters – Fondant Fox by Ellis Leigh

Fondant Fox: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons Book 4)

The road to forever is paved with good intentions…or bad ones hidden under the guise of education. The fourth story from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove is about to take you back to class.

***

It sucks to be invisible. In the diner my family owns, I’m just the sister who gets stuff done. My entire skulk seems to forget about me on a weekly basis. So color me tickled when the fates drop my fated mate–a hunky, nerdy-hot wolf shifting professor–directly in my path. But not all matings go as planned, mine included.

He’s smart, he’s hot, and he’s decided to use our bond for research instead of actually getting to know me. And did I mention he used to buy my best friend’s worn undergarments? Thanks for that, fates.

Undies aside, my wolf shifter professor is about to learn his toughest lesson ever–never go up against a fox shifter in a battle of wit or will. We’re sneaky, smart, and not afraid to take an opponent to the mattresses to win a battle.

FONDANT FOX is the latest paranormal romance from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh. The story is part of the Shifters In Love: Fun & Flirty world but is a standalone romance with wit, snark, and more than just flirting.

I purchased this book.

FINALLY Misty gets her man even if it was a bit rocky to start off.

Misty had been the rock the Chance sisters needed to get their matings off the group.  She has been their to help guide them and push them when needed.  I was so happy when I saw she finally got a mate.

Now about her mate….awkward is a word to describe him.  I am not talking about his nerdy exterior either.  I mean how he knows about the town and his connection to the town.  He was one of the guys who would buy Maddie’s dirty panties….EWWWWWW but then we find out why and the skeevy natire kinda goes down.

However, Misty’s heart is soon breaking when she learned her mate isnt interested or doesn’t believe in matings…….sniff….he is only interested in Research.  God Love Misty for taking him on and challenging him to bonding with his wolf and with her.

I liked Clark as he reminded me of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory!!  LOL

Honey Bear: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons Book 3)

Sometimes the happy in happily ever after is relative. Or related. Sort of. The third slice of sweetness from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

I’m supposed to be the nice sister. The good one. The girl everyone can count on and who rallies the troops whenever one of us needs a little boost. I’m not supposed to be anything other than sweet. I’m not the one secretly pining for a man twice my age. A man who shifts into a bear at whim and runs the whole darn town with a calm sort of confidence never before seen in Kinship Cove. But I do pine. I pine hard.

And when I make bad decisions because of that, I become the sister with a burden bigger than she can carry.

And a secret.

What would you do if you needed money fast? What wouldn’t you do?

I won’t sell my body. So instead, I’ll sell the closest thing I can—to whoever has the right amount of cash.

And I’ll cross my fingers and hope the bear shifter who refuses to see me as anything other than sweet never finds out.

HONEY BEAR is the latest paranormal romance from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh. The story is part of the Shifters In Love: Fun & Flirty world but is a standalone romance with wit, snark, and more than just flirting.

Honey Bear: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons #3) by Ellis Leigh

I purchased this book from Amazon.

I love love love the paranormal world that Elis creates in all of her stories.  She makes me laugh and love each and every characer.

This book is about sweet human Madeline/Maddy who is crazy in love with the town mayor and bear shifter Jericho.  The history of the two is long and intertwined to the point that Jericho calls himself Maddy’s uncle…ewwwww.  However, when Maddy grows up Jericho no longer wants to her uncle but her lover because the fates have made her is mate.

Jericho needed to a good kick in the pants because he was being an idiot and I loved the naughty Fox who helped him see he was missing a good thing by denying is mate, Maddy.

Maddy has given up on Jericho and also started a side business that ….welll…..isn’t traditional but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do right???

I loved the scene when Jericho finds out about Maddy’s little side business, but I really loved seeing Maddy stand up to Jericho’s enemy and let everyone know this little human is not so sweet after all!!

I so want to read the rest of the books in the series because all the characters cracked me up so I imagine their books are just as funny.

#WOTR20 #Shifters #Novellas – Sugar Dragon: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance (Mates & Macarons #2) by Ellis Leigh

Sugar Dragon: A Kinship Cove Fun & Flirty Romance

The next delectable treat from the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove will have your mouth watering. This recipe for happily ever after includes one feisty baker with a short attention span and a dragon who’s been hunting her for decades. All of the fated yumminess, none of the guilt.

* * *

Try everything once. That was my rule in life, food, and dating. I never missed the opportunity to have a new adventure, play with the right flavor profiles, or spend an evening with the perfect guy. Who needed Mr. Right when there were a thousand Mr. Right Nows running around? So, when a handsome man with heat in his eyes and a little silver in his hair came waltzing into my bakery, I knew I was in trouble.

He’s annoying.

He’s rude.

He’s demanding.

And he just might be the perfect match for me.

Too bad he’s a dragon shifter, and dragons don’t do the whole fated mate thing. But maybe rules—mine and his—were meant to be broken.


Goodreads



I purchased this book.

I loved the first book of this series and so when I had some extra money, I grabbed the rest of the novellas I the series.  I love how each story is a standalone but reading them in order actually gives more enjoyment because each book seems to intersect with the story.

This book is about Ginger, the girl who will never settle down.  She is also a one time and only one time kinda girl.  She owns her sexuality and is open to getting what she wants…..sex with no commitments.  When she is stunned stupid over an overly cocky and arrogant man version of herself, Kingston, Ginger is not happy over the feeling she is having.

I loved the struggle Kingston has in claiming his mate and abiding by his Dragon culture rules over claiming his mate.  I also loved seeing Ginger freak out over falling head over heels for this shifter when she swore never to fall for the whole “MINE” mentality.

This is a short and sweet story and I cant wait to read more!!

#WOTR20 #paranormal #review #Novella #KU – Candied Wolf (Mates & Macarons #1) by Ellis Leigh

Candied Wolf (Mates & Macarons #1)

At the Cake-ily Ever After bakery in Kinship Cove, three sisters are about to meet their matches and prove that a man with a little silver in his hair can make one heck of a mate…if the fates allow it.

* * *

No more dating shifters—at least, that’s what I promised myself after the last one met his mate while dating me. He wasn’t the first—fate seemed to enjoy smacking me upside the head whenever I dared to cross the species line. So when a handsome wolf shifter with a few extra years of experience comes walking into my bakery, I shouldn’t agree to go on a date with him.

Especially not because he’s only in town for the biggest wedding of the year.

The one where his son is the groom.

The one between my last boyfriend and his fated mate.

Did I say fate liked to smack me upside the head? Try burying me in the rubble of my past mistakes instead. Like father, like son had never been so wrong…or so right.


Goodreads


I purchased this book.

What a great introduction to the fun city of Kinship Cove!

Coco and her sisters run the popular bakery in town.  Madeline the shy. Ginger the slutty. Coco the perfect mix.  LOL

Coco’s past with men has not been good and her last boyfriend is now inviting her to his wedding.  Tacky Nico Tacky.  When a hot silver fox rolls into the bakery and sweeps Coco off her feet, watching the sparks fly was fun.

I would like to say what I loved about this book was the big twist we learn about Magnus and Coco’s combined history!!!  Coco is devastated and Magnus is lost because Coco doesn’t know she is his MATE.

The story of the two of them finding their way back and a sneaky fox named Misty helping made the story a quick and sexy read for a cold, blustery day!!

#WOTR20 #authorspotlight – Ellis Leigh

Ellis Leigh

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Ellis Leigh, writer of words, drinker of coffee, mother of daughters, and manger of projects.

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

I’ve become addicted to Smart Sweets sour gummy bears and peach rings. They’re made of prebiotic fiber and only contain 3g of sugar per bag–so they’re healthy! At least that’s what I like to tell myself. If I’m not eating low carb, I’ll have some Smart Pop popcorn around. And coffee (during the day) or flavored water (at night). I write on my couch with my feet up and my laptop in my lap (it’s not just a clever name after all) and require quiet–no music, no television.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I LOVE getting to interact with other authors. Plus just being around books! But my favorite–the absolute bestest thing in the world about being at a signing–is interacting with my readers. They are the sweetest, and I adore meeting them and sharing our love of the worlds I’ve built. Definitely come see me, give me a hug, and talk books with me. I’ll love you forever.

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

I got to meet mine! It’s Kelley Armstrong, and I walked up to her during a convention and fangirled all over the place. It was terrifying and awkward and perfect all at once.

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 woman who prefers structure, so I get up early and write for an hour before I have to get ready for work. Every weekday, I do this. Evenings and weekends I’ll work on admin things if I need to, but usually I just knit and hang out with my daughters. That first hour of the day is mine, though. Totally.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I was at a huge reader convention in Dallas a few years back–totally in line for coffee in my pajamas, mind you–and a reader screamed my name from across the lobby. I love that memory and pull it up whenever I’m feeling a little not-so-great. Whoever she was, she totally made my year!

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

I own paperback copies and a few of the graphic novels from Kelley Armstrong’s Women Of The Otherworld series. Those sit on a top shelf right along with my Harry Potter and Twilight collections. They’re sacred to me.

#WOTR19 #FavoriteBooks #TwinsieDee Top 5 Favorite Book from Janurary-June 2019

 

Goodreads –https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31182685-forever-ride

Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/Forever-Ride-Hellions-Motorcycle-Club-ebook/dp/B00KU6IYW0/ref=sr_1_13?crid=3A052S9XV1Z3R&keywords=chelsea+camaron&qid=1560727175&s=gateway&sprefix=Chelsea+cama%2Caps%2C179&sr=8-13

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

My Review –

Life as the Hellions motorcycle clubs VPs daughter leaves Savannah “Sass” hasn’t always been easy she has always struggles with  herself about wanting to feel safe and being away from the life that comes with the club and turning her back on family. Tank on the other hand is a playboy that doesn’t care what happens he’s ride or died for his club at no cost. When Sass and her best friend Doll are sent on a ride for their safety Tank ends up getting hurt and ends up in a coma. Once returned Sass visits him everyday and her new rebound of a douche boyfriend makes her choose her life with him or her family the only thing she ever knows. Making the hardest decision of her life Sass leaves the only thing she’s ever know behind and the wonder if Tank will ever wake up. Will the love Tank has for Sass be enough to pull him out of his coma, and get back to her? Will Sass find happiness outside of the only thing she’s ever know? Is forever long enough or nothing that will happen. I’m so in love with this series Chelsea just knows how to pull you in and make you fell like you are apart of this club and are family with them.

She’s a single mom, kid-free for a week. He’s the sexy, young substitute teacher in the apartment next door. She moans, he knocks and together they both find something new.

My Review-

This story is an amazing short, showing Monica a newly single divorced mom of 2 kids will do or what happens when she’s alone for the first time for a week without her kids and meets the hot sexy younger next door neighbor. Discovering just who she is and letting her inner sexiness out for a week and it might just be more then a one night or one week stand.

What happens when happily ever after isn’t happy? When everything you thought you knew changes?

Obligation…Marriage

Betrayal…Freedom

Until him. Until her.

Second chances…

Until them.

Deceit…Doubt.

The past may have won the battles, but can Love win the War?

My Review-

This story follows Reese and Andie 2 of the very best friends ever, with magic band aids, and who puts Reece’s pieces and Andie mints on their ice cream because that’s what friends do. Wait I’m getting ahead of myself yes those  girls are part of this story but they bring the cute factor. Aubrey is a newly single divorced mom of Reece after 12 years of marriage Aubrey has found herself not knowing who she really is anymore. All she’s known is being a housewife and mom so her best friend Niki makes her dress up find her sex appeal again and takes her to the club. There she’s dancing and having the time of her life when this extremely sexy man comes to her on the dance floor. Is he the knight and shining armor she’s been missing? Well this is were all the roads beginning and all the twist turns and secrets start but how much will be let out and how many hearts will be broken? With children involved how much far will Aubrey go to sacrifice her own happiness?

Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the tail, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst–and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated alpha–his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.

My Review-

When you find yourself with a cruse of being able to turn into a wolf you need to have a few things in your life 1) being able to find your mate and 2) Having a brotherhood people that understand and help shape you into who you are. That how life was for Rebel only thing was he had his brotherhood but after 200 years  living he still hasn’t  found his mate and started to believe that he was going to be alone with his brothers. Until he walked into the local strip club to help try and figure out what was going on within the town and within the shifters. That’s when his heart started racing and he about let out his inner wolf as he laid eyes on Cherry the cute waitress at the club. How was he going to protect her if she was involved he didn’t know. All he knew was that he needed to do whatever he could to keep her safe if someone laid a hand on her he was going to make sure they paid. I love this book and I need more..just don’t question it just go buy it.

Ivy’s all grown up and after years of therapy, and a stint in jail, she’s desperate to prove everyone wrong and find a way to get back to McCourt Manor as soon as possible. What Ivy finds when she gets there however isn’t the sweet, family of her memories, and she soon realizes there was much more to being Lucky Number 23 than she realized. **Lucky Number 23 is a Suspense Thriller with dark romance elements that some may find taboo. Themes in this book may not be suitable for all readers**

My Review-

When all you know is a life of evil and your forced to try and get you life on the right path. Well that’s how it is for 22 year old Ivy, from the age of 8 she was put into the foster care system after her mother died and family after family she was told there was something wrong with her that she was so dark nothing was able to fix her. Finally she was sent to the McCourt’s were she became their lucky number 23 the 23rd foster kid, and she was treated so differently then the other 22 foster kid she became one too the family. But that all changed when on of the kid got out and told police what was really going on behind closed doors at the manor. Ivy then spends the next 12 years trying to find a way back to her to the only family she’s known and its more difficult then even she expected. This book was amazing and dark and keeps you on the edge of your et until the very end with more twist and turns then you will ever see coming.

Nothing is hotter than an alpha male trying to find his mate. When Killian locks eyes with Lyra he won’t let anything or anyone for that matter get in his way. This short story keeps it hot spice and sizzling down to the last bite.

Review by Twinsie Dee

A storyteller from the time she could talk, USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a German Shepherd that refuses to leave her side
