Vampire's Promise (Guardians, #8)

After living through the horrors an evil demigod cast on humanity, Gwen is left with nothing to fight for. Peace may be great for mortals, but as a guardian, she is used to battling and blood. With all of her brethren now mated, it has left her adrift and alone in this new world. Her only excitement is bouncing at Roxie’s bar. That is until her visions show her the one thing she thought she would never see.

Kian, son of… Well, he isn’t really sure who he is anymore. His mother, Goddess of Destruction, has lied to him his entire life. Stories of his true father have been whispered in his ear and now he is hellbent on uncovering the truth. When he steps into another dimension, he discovers the true depths of deception, but before he can learn who he really is, the demigod is tossed into Khedeus’ prison simply for the crime of being born.

Pushed together by a vengeful God, Gwen knows the moment she lays eyes on Kian he belongs to her. The demigod is wary and with good reason. To him, she is nothing more than another lie, but fate has plans for them both. The world is once again in danger, but this battle isn’t hers. To save her mate, she will pay the ultimate price.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Gwen and Kian…such a great story.  Kian is a Demigod who is pretty much just done with secrets. Gwen is a Guardian who had been fighting her whole life.  She is tasked with finding the son of someone who ends up being her mate!!  SAY WHAT.  She had given up on finding her mate so yeah shocker!!!!

Kian is not about to trust anyone given who his whole life of circumstance.  I mean he is manipulated, and pretty much just told flat out lies.  He doesn’t know who his dad is thanks to mommy dearest.  So when Gwen says they are mates he is less then thrilled at the news.  Plus can he trust this person since no one is every truthful about anything in regards to him.

This book is another great read in the series.  I enjoy each book and can’t wait for more from this author.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and dog, in Northern IL.

#NewRelease – Danger on the Mountain (Marshall Brothers Book 3) by Carolyn LaRoche

Danger on the Mountain (Marshall Brothers Book 3) by [Carolyn LaRoche, Booksmith Design, Hot Tree Editing]

She’s sold her soul to the devil for the last time…

When an unexpected inheritance comes her way, high-powered defense attorney, Layla Evans, gives up everything she’s known and seizes the opportunity to start over. The mountain ranch is the perfect escape from a life she can no longer stand. In the solitude of her mountain escape, she can wrestle her demons and never hurt anyone with her job again.

She never counted on her past following her there.

Ben Marshall knows a thing or two about running away…

After a decorated military career ended in the worst way possible, Ben leaves his Special Forces unit and seeks sanctuary high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He needs the solitude. It’s enough, until a beautiful brunette, who has no business running a ranch, literally falls into his life. When Layla’s past catches up to her, Ben’s old instincts kick in. His need to keep Layla safe becomes stronger than his desire to protect himself from her.

Can he protect Layla without risking his battered heart or will love truly conquer all?

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #SeriesEnding #Witches – Cursed Luck, The Broderick Coven Book #5 by AJ Renee

Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven, #5)

Edward Broderick was anything but lucky.

His intuition made him suave in both business and life. Unfortunately, his debonair style went out the window when an ethereal beauty slipped into his life. No woman had made him feel like a tongue-tied fifteen-year-old before.

Free-spirited Mia Hemlock didn’t live by others’ expectations. Yet her easy life was shaken by the arrogant and awkward, yet handsome, man. Not even her earth magic could ground her heart when she became consumed by the man.

Will they accept the goddess’s love match, or will they allow misunderstandings and greed to force them apart?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

This series has gotten better with each book, and I cannot wait to see then in the next series with Peter. The last book in the series I admit I was wondering about. Edward is quiet and we don’t know much about him at all.  But after meeting Mia, I had to wonder where she would fall in the series or the next.  I was happy to see she was the perfect fit for our brooding and awkward final Broderick brother.

Eddie (as his siblings call him) is a loner by choice and his family has always allowed him to get away with it.  He loves that his siblings have all fallen in love and gotten mated, but he sure doesn’t think this is in the cards for him.  He is a bit jealous, but he is making the best with what he feels he was dealt.  When he is stumped by a gorgeous witch at his siters wedding he begins to question if the fates had finally tapped on his shoulder.

Mia can’t stop looking at the mysterious Broderick brother she hasn’t met.  She can’t stop thinking about him but when he opens his mouth, he only seems to insert his foot.  The couple have some growing pains and figuring out the other but when they DO, it’s a great chemistry.  As t be expected there are a few miscommunications they have to figure out, but the story is fast, and I flew reading it.  Also, can someone tell Peter to shut his wolfy mouth. Dude is seriously a buzz kill….lol

I loved the whole series and cannot wit for Peter to find some love in his series.  Dude is LONELY!!!!

AJ Renee loves to write steamy romance with a happily ever after. When she isn’t writing or interacting with her readers, you can find her spending time with her family or reading.

She graduated from the University of Central Florida with her Masters of Science in Criminal Justice and a Bachelors of Science in Psychology.

#WOTR22 #Mystery #CozyMystery #Shifter #Audio – Pit Perfect Murder (Barkside of the Moon book #1) by Renee George: Narration by Dara Rosenburg

Pit Perfect Murder (A Barkside of the Moon Cozy Mystery Book 1) by [Renee George]

Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that’s no mystery!
(previously published as Pit Perfect in 2016)

When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.

Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it’s love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily’s first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.

Lily’s new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?

Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!

Pit Perfect Murder, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. A clean read full of humor and small town charm.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book with my credits.

Hello Pittie momma so of course I had to grab it.  Then when I saw the main character Lily is a shifter….uhm paranormal are my jam so yessssss score score score!!

I will admit I am not a giant mystery reader but I loved the format and the comedy of the story, so it hit me in the right spot.

Lily has been surrounded by sadness her whole life.  She leaves home to find a long-lost uncle she never knew existed.  Uncle/Cousin Buzz wasn’t so keen on keeping his niece/cousin in town buuut they start to bond.  If you wanna know the uncle/cousin and niece/cousin story line I guess you need to read the story.

Lily is wondering through town when a pit bull runs up and adopts her as her person.  Lily also meets her new friend, Smooshies, owner and smitten is a word you could use.  Parker is kind and gentle plus kinda hot for a human so when he is accused of murder……Lily can’t handle it and is off to use her paranormal powers to solve the case.  No offense but she really was an awful person in live…old Katherine. *Growls*

I really enjoyed the who-done-it and getting to meet the characters in the town.  I personally can’t wait to see Buzz settle down, but I really want to see Parker and Lily maybe *wiggles eyes* admit some feelings for one another.  But Parker’s dad was also the best ever.  Honestly other then the old bitty who died, I loved the town.  LOL

#WOTR21 #Zombies – Lost Undead, Stay Dead Book #2 by L.C. Mortimer AKA Sophie Stern

Book cover for Lost Undead (Stay Dead, #2) by L.C. Mortimer

Zombies never stay dead.

They made it to the island. They managed to find a way to escape the burning cruise ship where they’d been trapped, and now they’re facing a new problem.

The zombies didn’t go down with the ship.

They’re here.

They’re everywhere.

Winter and her friends need to find a new way to escape, a new way to keep fighting.

If only the dead would stay that way.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

STAHP!!  Run and buy this awesome book if you are a zombie fan.  But actually wait, buy book 1 and then grab book 2.  Be ready to pre-order book 3 thought because this book leaves you wanting more!!!

The last book ended with Winter, Isaiah, and Greta landing on an island and praying it was safe.  This story picks up right where the last book ended. Our survivors are checking out the island when more survivors show up.  To say things aren’t peachy is an understatement.

Dude! Greta is a bad ass chick who people don’t even give enough credit too.  Winter is becoming quite a warrior as well.  Isaiah is another awesome member to the rag tag team.  They stick together and help each other when the other survivors start to make things difficult for trio.

To say this book is action packed is an understatement.  To say this book will keep it interesting is also an understatement.  I seriously cannot wait for more from the series.  The characters are growing more and more to be a family not just out of convenience but of actual compassion for each member.

L. C. Mortimer

L.C. Mortimer likes zombies, shifters, and things that go bump in the night. When she’s not busy dreaming up her next story, Mortimer can be found dancing, traveling, or curled up with a cozy mystery.

#NewRelease – The Cowboys Secret by Red Phoenix

The Cowboy's Secret

“Kiss my whip, darlin’…”

I’m not your average cowboy. While I may have tight jeans and a big “belt buckle”, my real talent lies in using my bullwhip to pleasure the ladies.

I am willing to sacrifice everything in my search to find a solution that will save my family’s homestead. In the process, I am introduced to an extraordinary person.

Little do I know that my solution will involve this mysterious stranger who demands I keep a secret.

This secret will change everything

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh Master Anderson!!  I love going back into time to see my favorite jokester grow his bond with Thane and Durov.  We see Master Anderson and all the beginning of the love with his whip *shivers*.  We see him becoming the man we all love.  I mean how do you not love a man who can sweep you off your feet with cooking and spankings *Wink*

I enjoyed seeing him become the respectful and loyal friend we love in the main series.  I loved seeing his past and knowing how it shapes his future.  I enjoyed seeing how him grow his skills but what I loved was his special relationship with Dominus.  When we see him enter the training center it was so exciting.  I love seeing the “before” scenes.  We all know what happens once Brie enter but seeing before is mesmerizing!!

I mean seriously there is nothing about this book I didn’t love.  Master Anderson just makes me smile.  He warms your heart and hope that you can find someone to make you feel as special as he makes the submissives in his care.

#WOTR22 #NewRelease – Break Me by MJ Fields and Chelsea Camaron

Chelsea Camaron is the attending author

Break Me

In a powerful, smoldering novel from the bestselling authors of the Caldwell Brothers series (“Bad boy heroes to die for!”—Tracy Wolff), two tortured souls team up to overcome the past, finding the courage to heal . . . and to love.

Jason “Cobra” Stanley was born to fight. With a father like his, he had to toughen up just to survive. Now Cobra tries to take out all of his frustration, all of his anger, and all of his pain in the MMA cage. But after he receives one too many hits to the head during a match with Jagger Caldwell, the cycle of violence comes to a screeching halt. Cobra wakes up in the hospital, under the care of a nurse whose blond hair shines like a halo—and whose pure heart touches him on the deepest level.

Lorraine Bosch is a fighter too. Having escaped from her own controlling father, she prides herself on remaining professional, despite the chaos in the ER. But Cobra is the ultimate distraction. Lorraine knows she should run away screaming from his rippling muscles and shattered psyche. And yet how can she deny this broken man a second chance—especially since she knows exactly what he’s been through? Lorraine’s used to playing guardian angel. Now it’s her turn to find heaven in Cobra’s arms.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

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

I do enjoy when I see a new Red book shows up. This one is about the one and only Cowboy Master Anderson. I do enjoy reading about this happy go lucky fun-loving jokester. I never know what I’m going to get with Red is it going to be present time and see the character get his HEA or will we go back to the beginning to get a glimpse of what influenced them into the character they are today.

This story takes us back to Master Anderson and college days with Thane and Durov. Anderson loves with all his heart and projects his feelings.  He is all about his family, no matter if it is his blood relative or the family he picked in Thane and Durov.

We get to see Master Anderson expand his talents and learn more about himself.  He finds himself in a new situation with Thane and Durov away and the secret he is holding onto.  Master Anderson dives into his studies after making a slight change to his major.

I love reading about his antics and to see some of his prank’s backfire is a hoot. I love that his family is so close and you can see where he gets his humor from. Just like when Thane visited the farm was memorable so was the time that Durov spent there.  I may have teared up just a bit in a few of Durov interactions with Andersons family.

We get a sneak peek at the Submissive Training Center and the first meeting of Master Anderson and Tono. We are also introduced to a Dom, Dominus, that mentors Master Anderson and becomes someone that Anderson holds dear to his heart.

I enjoyed seeing the fun-loving side of Master Anderson but we get to see he is so much more in this book.  He is determined knows what he wants and will do what ever it takes to get it done. He knows when he needs to step back and spend a little extra time with his family. We would all be lucky to have a Cowboy like Master Anderson as a brother.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

“That’s the way of family. Whether by blood or by choice, when one suffers, we all suffer.”  ~Master Anderson

“You know, son, you’re defined by the company you keep, and you have exceptional taste in friends.” ~Mr. Anderson … can I say this speaks to me the most my father used to tell me all the time when I was a teenager, “you are who you run with, so choose your friends wisely.”
