#WOTR23 #Review – The Vampire Who Saved Christmas by Sophie Stern

The Vampire Who Saved Christmas by [Sophie Stern]

One human. One vampire. One collection of missing blood.

Juniper James is working at the Rose Valley Blood Bank when something goes terribly wrong: a collection of blood is stolen, which means an upcoming surgery they’re supposed to supply blood for isn’t going to be able to happen. Suspicion is instantly cast upon Edward Sparrow – the tall, lanky man who runs the blood bank.

Juniper knows that Edward couldn’t have possibly stolen all of that blood, and she also knows that he’s a vampire.

Now Juniper and Edward have to team up to solve the mystery and save the day before Christmas is ruined for one little boy.

Will they be able to save Christmas?

The Vampire Who Saved Christmas takes place in the same world as ROSE VALLEY VAMPIRES by Sophie Stern. This is a spicy quick read featuring a snarky vampire and the human who falls for him. Standalone. Guaranteed HEA. For more vampires by Sophie Stern, check out Megan Slays Vampires or Sweet Nightmares: The Vampire’s Melody.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Fun, quirky, fast and hawt read!

‘100% of the time, that’s how relationships end. In death. Unless, of course, you’re a vampire.’

Edward Sparrow, our resident vampire that no one knows is a vampire, runs the blood bank. He provides blood to the hospitals and the local vamps. Everything starts to fall apart when everyone reports to work in the morning, like normal, and they find out the blood is missing…all of it. Things are really starting to feel all sorts of out of whack. The snarky vamp has to figure something out to save the day. The voluptuous Juniper is right at his side. However, these two can’t stop thinking about each other. There is a bit of guilt that comes along with not being able to save everything right now. But there is also something to be said when you can stop and enjoy the moment when things are going right.

Sophie Stern guarantees the HEA and has done a fantastic job with this one. If you are looking for a quick pick me up with a few hawt scenes, I highly recommend!

These are my top reads in no particular order

  1. Cat and Mouse Duet, Haunting Adeline and Hunting Adeling by H.D. Carlton

**Please read the trigger warning before reading!!**  This book is NOT for anyone underage 18.  This is full of mature themes.

Trigger Warning: Book 1 ends on a cliffhanger. This duet is a dark romance that contains graphic violence, dub/non con, and deals with subject matters such as child trafficking and human sacrifice. If you have ANY triggers at all, this may not be the story for you. 

Haunting Adeline Hunting Adeline

Book 1  – Haunting Adeline

The Manipulator
I can manipulate the emotions of anyone who lets me.
I will make you hurt, make you cry, make you laugh and sigh.
But my words don’t affect him. Especially not when I plead for him to leave.
He’s always there, watching and waiting.
And I can never look away.
Not when I want him to come closer.

The Shadow
I didn’t mean to fall in love.
But now that I have, I can’t stay away.
I’m mesmerized by her smile, by her eyes, and the way she moves.
The way she undresses…
I’ll keep watching and waiting. Until I can make her mine.
And once she is, I’ll never let her go.
Not even when she begs me to.

While not required, it is highly suggested to read the novella, Satan’s Affair, first.
Author’s Note: This book ends on a cliffhanger. For CWs, please check the author’s website.

Book 2  – Hunting Adeline 

The final installment to the Cat and Mouse Duet…

The Diamond
Death walks alongside me,
But the reaper is no match for me.
I’m trapped in a world full of monsters dressed as men, and those who aren’t as they seem.
They won’t keep me forever.
I no longer recognize the person I’ve become,
And I’m fighting to find my way back to the beast who hunts me in the night.
They call me a diamond,
But they’ve only created an angel of death.

The Hunter
I was born a predator,
With ruthlessness ingrained in my bones.
When what’s mine is stolen from me in the night,
Like a diamond hidden within a fortress,
I find that I can no longer contain the beast.
Blood will paint the ground as I tear apart this world to find her.
And bring her back to where she belongs.
No one will escape my wrath,
Especially not those who have betrayed me.

Warning: This is the second and final installment to the Duet. You must read Haunting Adeline first.

2. Stitched up Heart , Combat Hearts Book 1 by Tarina Deaton

Stitched Up Heart (The whole series is AMAZING actually!!!)

As an Air Force medic, Bree Marks saw the worst the War on Terror had to dish out. Now a physical therapist, she uses her experience to help other veterans heal from their physical wounds; while she battles her own emotional damage.

Blaming himself for his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Jase Larken, retreated from life. To honor his best friend’s memory and assuage his guilt, he started an outdoor adventure company to help veterans with PTSD.

Bree had better things to do than catch her cheating fiance in bed with another woman. Jase is something better – for a night at least. For the first time in years, Jase wanted more. When he finds her again, he doesn’t give her another chance to run.

Jase’s protectiveness grates on Bree’s independent nature. She’s dealt with her fair share of alpha-male, door kickers and doesn’t need one telling her what to do now. But as a new danger emerges, Bree and Jase must face their pasts, before someone’s obsession with Bree destroys any chance they have of a future.

Can be read as a stand alone. No cliffhangers within the story.

3. Fierce, Alumbra Pack Book 3

Fierce

An independent gamma, a logical werewolf, and someone who threatens to tear them apart.

After a few failed attempts to connect romantically with humans, Adira accepts her single life and continues to thrive as the Alumbra Pack’s gamma. When her wolf claims the man across the room as theirs, however, she panics and runs.

While retrieving his sister from the pack who’d saved her, the last thing Luke expected was setting his eyes on his true mate. Unable to return to his pack without Adira, he sets out to woo the fascinating and formidable woman.

Choosing which pack to settle down with should be the biggest trial ahead of them. But when someone sets out to tear them a part, the ever logical and calm Luke learns there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for the woman he loves.

Can he ask her to stay with a target on her back, or will he choose to leave his now-whole family behind?

4. Sanction : Knights of Paradise MC, book 2 by SJ Chaynie

You have to read book 1 as this is how book 1 ends.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.

5. Grimalkin Needs Brides Series by Sophie Stern

Ekpen: Grimalkin Needs Brid... Torao: Grimalkin Needs Brid... Leo: Grimalkin Needs Brides #3 Ekpen, Torao, and Leo

Epken – 

A planet with more cats than people…
Grimalkin needs brides.

Earth is a dystopian nightmare that’s going to be destroyed very, very soon. Nobody knows exactly when or how, but the threat of destruction looms in the background of everyone’s mind.

Holly is ready to escape from her planet, but there’s a problem: only rich people actually get to leave Earth, and she’s barely got five bucks to her name.

Enter the Grimalkin Bridal Exchange.

The deal is simple: she goes to an alien planet, marries some random dude, and gets to live out her days in luxury and happiness.

Only, the guy she’s paired up with doesn’t want to get married.

And he doesn’t want to get married to her.

In fact, he actually kind of…hates her.

Torao – 

Three months ago, Amena spent one wild night with a man from Grimalkin. He was everything she’d ever wanted or hoped for, but she knows that she’ll never see him again.

She can’t.

When Amena signs up for the Grimalkin Bridal Exchange at the Intergalactic Dating Agency, she expects to be taken to a planet with more cats than people, but she doesn’t expect to see him. It’s Torao. It’s the man she slept with in a field of wildflowers.

But how can this be?

Torao isn’t ready to get married, but he doesn’t have a choice.

Short. Curvy. Soft.

The woman from Earth who practically runs into his arms is everything he never knew he wanted.

But she shouldn’t be here on his planet. She definitely shouldn’t be in his bed keeping him warm. This human has a secret, and he plans to find out what it is.

Leo – 

Leo has been dreaming of getting married his entire life and having someone he can love in spite of everything that’s gone wrong. He was never supposed to be a doctor.His plan had been to become a warrior or a fighter, but when he lost his tail in a freak accident, he knew he needed to choose a career path where he could hide. Being a doctor means he gets to focus on everyone else – no one looks twice at him.

Tamara has been worried about her friends ever since they left Earth. Holly and Amena were both supposed to contact her, but they didn’t. Now it’s up to Tamara to make her way to Grimalkin and find out what’s happened to her best friends. She lost her leg years ago, so she knows she’s not going to be eligible for the bridal exchange, but there are other ways of getting to Grimalkin.

When Tamara is caught stowing away on a bridal transport to Grimalkin, she’s given an impossible choice.

Then she sees Leo, and she realizes that all bets are off.

She wants him.

Like, really wants him.

But is Leo ready to love a human like Tamara?

And is she willing to open her heart to the one person who could crush it?

Sophie Stern

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Sophie Stern – I love coffee, cats, and writing!

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

The first book is the hardest for me because it sets the tone for the rest of the series. I always want to make sure to make the first book as strong and exciting as possible.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

Lots of jokes! I like writing snarky, quirky characters who aren’t afraid to joke around. That’s one of my favorite ways to keep stories fun.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Set goals but keep in mind that your goal doesn’t have to be the same as other people.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

Usually about eight hours!

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Cosmo in “The Dragon’s Fake Fiancee” is one of my favorite characters because he’s so feisty! Ekpen in “Grimalkin Needs Brides” is another favorite.

What is your definition of success?

Making my readers smile.

#WOTR23 – #Review – Don’t Cry Over Spilled Potions (Which Village, Book 3) by L.C. Mortimer aka Sophie Stern

Don't Cry Over Spilled Potions (Which Village Book 3) by [L.C. Mortimer]

For fans of Buffy, Charmed, and Hocus Pocus comes a story about second chances and new beginnings.

Don’t cry over spilled potions.

Once upon a time, I was in love.

My husband was stolen from me before I was ready, but I found him again.

Now he’s back.

He’s here with me in Which Village, but he has no memory of the past and no idea that the two of us were inseparable.

When a foe from his werewolf days threatens to tear us apart, Stanley and I have a choice to make, and it’s not going to be an easy one.

Don’t Cry Over Spilled Potions is the third book in the WHICH VILLAGE series. This book features female main characters who are middle-aged (or fast approaching it) and who have magical powers.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Excellent finale for the Which Village series! I absolutely love this series and Don’t Cry Over Spilled Potions is no different. Jaden and Stanley’s love story is one that against all odds should continue. Now that Jaden has her husband back we get to experience what exactly Stanley is and has been going through….absolute hell. People are tricky and sneaky, but to find out you are something you are not feels like a curse. It is almost like Jaden and Stanley have to meet again. Neither know much about the other but both feel the connection. Is that connection going to be enough to save them? That’s the question, my friends. “The curse of the werewolves is a nasty one.” Both, Jaden and Stanley, have to deal with their own feelings of self worth and wondering if they are good enough. But when push comes to shove, true colors shine bright! If you are looking for something that is a bit different from the normal witches, werewolves, and things that go bump in the night, you need to read this series!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

STAHP!!!  Each of the brothers in this series I swore was my favorite but Leo might be my guy…..until

Apollo!!  LOL

Leo and Tamara are a perfect pair with their imperfections.  They both are so insecure but with the other they are complete.

Leo is finally happy to get matched and married but the wedding day his mate is stolen away by Apollo, his cousin.  Leo is ok because he didn’t feel the connection with Kate.  The match maker is freaking out until she remembered a stowaway was on the ship.  She tossed Tamara out the door and BOOM Leo was in love.

Tamara is freaking out her 2 besties are missing.  They left to get married, and she hasn’t heard from them since.  She needs t find out what happened to her besties. When the match maker tosses her out the door, she agrees but only so she can find her friends.  She is stunned at how amazing Leo is.

When the two communicate their issues to the other…..I fell so in love with Leo.  He is just about perfect even if he isn’t perfect in his eyes.

Seeing the best friends all reconnect and the brothers all settled was a great ending until Apollo appears and drops his news!!  I cant wait for more!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I read Ekpen and had to read Torao.  I mean the little mini cliffhanger type ending had me in knots.  Ekpen and Holly are happy and now expecting so Torao signs up for a mate just so their youngest brother Leo can get married.  He is the main one who wants a mate, but the brothers suck it up for him.

Torao is shocked when his one-night stand is who walks off the ship to be his bride.  Unfortunately for Torao, Amena is not here for love.  She is here to find her missing friend, HOLLY, and escape back to Earth.

The couple have miscommunication when Torao things the secret she is hiding is one thing and he finds out the truth.  Amena is desperate to find her friend and worried their other friend left on Earth wil freakout she too is missing.

The story was another quick and sexy read about a desperate human and a sweet alien.  I am of course obsessed with what is up with Leo the youngest brother!!!

This is a new series by Sophie, and I was there for it.  I mean Ekpen and Holly were a great quick read.  Holly needs to get the hell off Earth and Ekpen is only getting married to help his brothers get their mates.  Both are not so happy but are doing what they need to do.

Holly and Ekpen have some issues with miscommunication initially but thanks to a little help from his brothers and parents they are able to open up.  Once he realizes how amazing Holly is and she sees he isn’t so grumpy all the time, they grow together as a couple.

I can’t wait to read his brothers book just by the way it ended with him knowing his bride!!!

#WOTR23 #Review Once Upon a Curse (Which Village, book 2) by L.C. Mortimer aka Sophie Stern

Once Upon a Curse: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (Which Village Book 2) by [L.C. Mortimer]

Once upon a curse…

Once upon a time, Which Village was a great place to live. At least, that’s what people tell me. Now, even though the witch who cursed the moon is dead, the town still seems to be under some sort of hex.

What’s causing the strange problems that are happening in Which Village?

Who is the mysterious stranger who has appeared in town?

And most importantly, am I ever going to figure out the secrets my mother left behind?

Once Upon a Curse is the second book in the WHICH VILLAGE series. This book features female main characters who are middle-aged (or fast approaching it) and who have magical powers.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Magic, curses, and spells…oh my! And I can’t forget about floating pies. There are floating pies, ya’ll!

Magic comes with a price and Jaden is experiencing it firsthand. The story picks up a year after book 1. This chapter in the journey also gives us a better view into Eliza’s life, which I love! Things in Which Village have settled down, but Eliza has been putting her heart into a new annual festival in hopes of bringing some tourism in that will help celebrate magic and the paranormality that is Which Village. Jaden is getting antsy because she is not getting anywhere with finding anymore clues from her mom’s testing and research, plus she isn’t getting any closer to finding her dead husband. Things go awry when someone from the deep dark past shows up and definitely throws some crazy spells around.

One of my favorite things about this series so far is the quirkiness of the stories. It’s funny, heartwarming, and has a bit of a thriller vibe too. The story moves fast so you experience many emotions and feelings pretty quickly. Oh, and Jaden’s character is made to be real. She is going through life with the same emotions and thoughts that many of us do. She is sooooo relatable and one of my favorite characters. I can’t wait for the next book because I can’t imagine what other twists and turns we will come across.

When she’s not busy dreaming up her next story, Mortimer can be found stocking up on canned goods for the zombie apocalypse.

#WOTR23 #Review A Hex a Day (Which Village, Book 1) by L.C. Mortimer aka Sophie Stern

A Hex a Day: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (Which Village Book 1) by [L.C. Mortimer]

A hex a day keeps the werewolves away…

My mom is dead.

At 34 1/2 years old, this shouldn’t bother me nearly as much as it does, especially considering the fact that we haven’t spoken in years.

But she’s my mom.

And it bothers me.

I make my way to her home as quickly as I can. She lived in a little town in the middle of nowhere, but as soon as I start working my way through her estate – organizing the chaos in her raggedy little cottage, sorting through her financial documents – strange things start to happen.

Suddenly, I wonder if I really knew my mother at all.

Suddenly, I wonder if her death was really an accident.

The town where she lived is full of mystery and chaos, and it doesn’t take long for me to realize that my mother’s killer is still out there – and that I might be their next victim.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

A Hex a Day. Why wouldn’t you want to give this book a try. Once you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down. Never a dull moment!

“All I knew was that whatever was about to happen was going to change everything I knew about magic. Forever.”

Jaden’s story is incredible and will keep you on the edge of your seat. This poor girl loses her husband and soon thereafter, her mother. Just like any “normal” family, Jaden and her mother had their issues, but they still loved each other very much. Jaden hadn’t seen or spoken to her mother in years and decides to try and get to know her mother while going through the estate. This is when things really get wonky. Jaden arrives in Which Village and immediately recognizes that things are a bit different. The homes are a bit different, the people are a bit different, the evening is a bit different. As she is told her mother’s killer is still out there, she finds that her mother isn’t who she thought she was and that she was dabbling in things that others didn’t like. This is where my favorite twist comes in! I never saw it coming and was speechless. The more answers she gets, the more chaotic things get.

“Life truly was a journey, and sometimes the only way through the fire was straight through.”

Pure craziness at times. However, like a true heroin, she is able to solve one mystery, but I still have so many questions. Because of this, I can’t wait to dive into the next book in this series. I have questions and I demand answers!! LOL! A must read!

The Virgin and the Lumberjacks by [Sophie Stern]

I didn’t want to go to the family reunion.

I didn’t want to drive home through the mountains.

I didn’t want to get stuck in a snowstorm.

But that’s exactly what happened.

When the lumberjacks find me trapped in my car, they do more than just save me. Eli and Keagan offer me a place to stay. They give me food. They keep me safe.

But they can’t protect my heart.

Not from this.

**The Virgin and the Lumberjacks is a standalone short romance with a HEA. Originally published in 2017, this story was called Take Your Time. Although the original story remains the same, this book has been updated and expanded by the author.**

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

SOPHIE!!  GIRL!!!  THIS BOOK!!!  OMG!!  Lemme finish cooling myself off from this novella.

YA’LL This story is a quick and steamy read about Melody who has a shit family.  I mean dang they are pretty awful people.  Straight up awful humans.   She has had enough and leaves the party.  She gets stuck thanks to a snowstorm in the mountains but is rescued by Eli and his brother Keagan.  They are hotties who area also billionaires who spend their free time-sharing women looking for THE ONE.

The men are enthralled by Melody.  She is perfectly curvy, drama free, brave, and willing to take them on.  Eli and Keagan are so happy with the little lady they are nervous for rejection after the weekend of “snuggle time”.

This book was just a great, naughty read but leaves you super happy for all the characters I the end.
