Accidental P*rnstar by [Cindy  Tanner]

AMAZON BuyLink

My college career was going great…

Until it wasn’t.

I lost my job, scholarship, and apartment in a trifecta of crap luck.

The last thing I want to do is run back home to my parents with my tail tucked. As luck would have it, my old roommate, Mason Davis, has a compelling—if slightly unorthodox solution—to my financial dilemma.

His suggestion?

A live stream feed of me enjoying a little steamy fun with HIM. The smoking hot guy I’ve fantasized about countless times before.

Surely, a tenacious bookworm like me can figure out how to let go of her inhibitions for one night.

After all, going viral is a good thing… right?

ANGIE Review

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

Lawd ya’ll when Cindy showed me the title for this book I was cracking up. I couldn’t wait to read it. When she asked if I wanted an ARC…legit I jumped. I am so glad I did. This book has so many amazing lines and scenes. I was giggling on my chair on the deck. I legit gave the “Why are you looking at me” stare to my husband when he was all “Lets do something.” UHM NO Jules and Mason are making a PORN! LOL
SO Jules and Mason lived together with a snot and Mason moved out long before Jules. She was all kinds of a mess because on top of losing her housing she needs a job. She is at the club whichis never does and is drinking. She makes a fool of herself a couple times and thankfully Noah is there for them. LOL Jules and Mason reconnect and he offers her a room in his condo. Ya know the one he has also ready paid for. Well the comedy of what happens just needs to be read but needless to say Jules is not about t move in when…again …she has zero place to go.
Jules moves in and then Mason tells her is secret…ya know he does ALLFANS>>>GASP!! I know right!! SO after a quick chat he says he would love to scene with her for a cool $5K. When a girl is down a girl needs to do some drastic measures.
SO Mason and Jules start to blur the line between roommates/dating couple/work mates. They have some misunderstanding, jealousy, miscommunication, and of course a dash of “You trying to steal my girl”!!
The story was perfect. It was a great read and for sure I want a book on Mel and Noah.

Till Death Do Us Part (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 7) by [Mary  Martel ]

AMAZON buy link

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be.

ANGIE’s Review –

I received this book from the author for free for an honest review by that sexy bitch Mary Martel.

Between texting Mary to yell at her and texting her to sob to her…this book was everything fans of the series want to read. There is so much that happens in this book to move the story forward and answer questions but start so many new ones.
I am so afraid to spoiler this book that I am going to keep my review kinda vague in parts. I want you to be just as devasted and excited as I was. Lemme just say prepare for Chapters 14-17 because they are so heavy. My stomach was in KNOT…KNOTS…..tears….heartbreak….guys…so much happens in this part of the book.
Now don’t go thinking the rest of the book isn’t important because LAWD it is. There are so many parts of the book I need to discuss like Rain, Romero, and Isobel. I mean Jesus these 3. The crazy triangle!!!
Can I saw Q and Ariel arguing are pretty epic and as always hilarious for you the reader. Q is my favorite of the coven guys and of course he is an epic fuck up with his girl and understanding when she needs girly stuff. But I love Damien and Jules more this novel. Jules for standing up to Rain and Damien for understanding Ariel and her girl ways. Tyson is the best friend we need and love. Dash…sigh,,,he is just sensitive Dash. The twins made my heart so happy in this book. They open up and really show us how much they love being loved by Ariel. They understand her fears and do everything to let her know she is perfect for them.
The Council…guys…so much shit happens this book and shit will reverberate after shit that happens this book. I am so nervous and excited for what will happen after this book. GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vague reviews so as to not post spoilers!!!!!! Its so tough!!! But I need you to be just as devastated and broken as I was!
There was a new character introduced…..friends……your heart….it will be destroyed and yet it will make everything right with the coven. Does that make sense? It will trust me. I loved and hated this character. Loved them because of who they are but hated their back story. If they are involved in the Council it cant be a good one right????
As always I am a needy reader and want so much more. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Rebel (Alumbra Pack Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

AMAZON buy link

He’d long given upon finding his mate, but when he does, is she too broken to trust their bond?
Meeting boys after curfew should have been innocent fun, but it turned Rosalia’s life upside down. Escaping the werewolf compound wasn’t an option, so she did her best to survive the twisted hell she’d been dragged to. Her dreams of having a real chance at life had been smothered by guilt and the realization she was too broken, even if she ever did see her loved ones again.
Peter had nearly given up on finding his true mate, but a mission to rescue a pack member’s sister leads him to Rosalia. If he’d known why she’d been impossible to locate, he would have left the pack in his beta’s care and moved mountains to save her sooner.
He must find the strength to rein in his wolf’s need to claim her and give her the necessary space to heal. Her body, heart, and wolf are at odds, with merely a thin string keeping her tattered spirit from coming apart. Can Rosalia learn to trust Peter, or are the jagged, invisible scars too deep?

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book.
I LOVED PETER!! I mean I have loved him since meeting him in the Broderick series. You do not have to read the Broderick series to read this book OR the following books in the series BUT I highly suggest it so you understand the relationships.
Peter…he is the best alpha. He loves his pack and those he deems pack like the witches in the Broderick coven. He is fierce in protecting those he loves. He is happy with his life, but he yearns for his mate. He is happy for Brandy and her siblings but…yeah why can’t he find HERE!!! Our calm cool alpha is outta his mind lately and he is not sure WHY. He can’t focus and is just hot tempered which is not Peter. When the pack and the coven go to save some women, he is beyond mad to see his mate there…in the room of abused and battered women AND a sister to Claudia.
Rosalie is the brave one of the group. She has done lots of things that many would find disgusting to survive abuse and horrors. When she realizes they are being rescued and its by her sister, she is overjoyed and then…..she sees him. The large wolf is her mate. She is scared given she has seen how alpha tend to treat women.
Rosie and Peter have a lot to overcome but Peter becomes more the man we know and love. He is doing everything to make sure she knows she is safe and wanted no matter what she as been through. He is doing everything to put her at ease to him and his caring. The waters these two navigate was pretty wicked at times but Peter never faulters. GUYS I loved him even more!!! GAH!! PETER!!!
I am so excited for this series and absolutely love that the Brodericks are just as front and center in this series as Peter’s pack was in their story. But I really wanna know whats up with Xander but Lea and Joel!! EEEEP!!!!
I cannot wait!!

The Dragon's Fake Fiancée (Shifters of Rawr County Book 6) by [Sophie Stern]

AMAZON buy link

Cosmo has been living in Rawr County for the last 10 years because he hates himself and wants to be miserable. Dragon Isle was no good for him. Everyone there was too happy and joyful. A dragon like him deserves to be unhappy.

When his family tries to set him up with a childhood friend to date, he blurts out a lie: he’s engaged.

It’s not true.

But when they surprise him with an unexpected visit, he grabs his nearest employee, Athena, and introduces her as his fiancée.

What could possibly go wrong?

Angie’s Review –

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

Ok here goes. So Sophie is about the most adorable person I have ever met. I have read several of her alter ego books but have been looking to sink my teeth into on of these books but life man…not enough time in the day, right? SO, she offered this ARC and I jumped. Its in a “series” but all the books can be read in any order. I didn’t have any issues reading the 3 or 4th book in the series. Every side character was briefly introduced and then off we went.
Cosmo and Athena…. holy hawt burn. Holy pants melting off…. holy office spankings. Oh yeah you read that right…. OFFICE. SPANKING!
Ok ok so the Office Spanking was to get you hooked now lets really get down to the story, shall we??
Cosmo is a grumpy…..errrr……brooding dragon. His friends are all mating up and he is in love with his secretary who is in love with Benjamin. UGH Gross Benny. Anyway, he looks forward to seeing her every single day. Since she is his paralegal, it does happen all the time.
Althena is head over heels in love with her boss. Ya know, the dragon. She does everything can can to be close to him like going back to school to be a paralegal. She is so afraid of looking like the pathetic girl she is, and maybe in hopes of making him jealous, she makes but a boyfriend.
One phone call and visit from Cosmo’s family changes EVERYTHING for them. Cosmos mom and dad want him to come home to meet another chick to possible settle him down on Dragon Isle to have some dragon babies. Cosmo is not down with this idea, so he throws Athena under the bus and she goes along with it.
I mean they live together for a week and pretend to be getting married. They know so much about the other how can it go wrong?? LAWD the feelings that come rolling off each of them not knowing how the other really feels. The chemistry was so thick but the slow burn…….I almost combusted!!!
This story was sooooo good. I sat and devoured it in a couple hours. Now I need to grab the other books in the series and I am so looking forward to Jennifer, The Red Panda’s book with Lewis!!!

Outcast (The Pack Prophecy Book 1) by [R.L. Caulder]

AMAZON buy link

“The arrival of the Prophetess will bring both hope and destruction for the wolves of the world.

She alone will be able to save them–or damn them.”

The dark prophecy that has been passed down since the first pack of shifters is coming to fruition– and I am at the center of it.

An orphaned human taken in by a pack of wolves. The fate of their existence in my hands.

I’ve been treated as the dirt beneath the pack’s paws for years.

Will they be able to accept my new role when my powers surface? Will I be able to forgive them enough to help them?

The bright spot amongst all the turmoil…finding my three fated. Until one of them rejects our bond.

The one thing I know for sure…death is coming for us all, soon, and the person responsible for it? Their betrayal is going to alter the shifter world forever.

I’ll conquer my powers, protect the packs, and live happily ever after with my men, right?

Wrong.

No one is prepared for the vile truths of my visions to come to light.

***

Author Note: This book has a 18+ warning and is intended for mature audiences. It is book one in The Pack Prophecy series which will end in a cliffhanger.

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book and audio,

The narration of the story *Chef’s Kiss* was absolutely perfect. Heather and Jeffrey brought the characters to life 110%. I will be honest in that I LOVE Jeffrey’s audio and when I see his name, I am super excited.

I grabbed this book because R. L. Caulder will be attending a book signing I am going too. She has so many books to pick BUT this one had audio. It was the winner. I gotta admit chance is why I grabbed the book, but I am so addicted to Kira and her men.
I loved the fact this book was kinda a shifter’s version of Cinderella…I mean she is a gross human the Alpha and his wife, Maya, took in. But once the Alpha’s mate was killed by daimoma, he blames her and is keeping her in misery to punish her.
Kira had only known happiness the few years she was with Jameson and his mother, Maya. Once Maya was killed she was only bullied and teases horrible by all the wolves in the pack Jameson and Sophia were the worst ones to her. There was only one bright spot in her day. Milo always would protect her. He has made it clear he has feelings for her, but she knows once the full moon hits when he turns 21 just like the rest of the pack, he will find his mate and forget her. She guards her heart and hopes one day she can find happiness too.
The closer the pack comes to the next full moon, Kira notices Seth, Jameson’s bestie, looking at her like a pork chop. She is angry that NOW he admits he has feelings. Sorry Seth not happening. Kira does as she is always expected to do when the full moon hits and everyone changes….even KIRA!!!??? Milo, Seth, AND Jameson all run to her because they feel the pull to their “Fated Mate”. The wolves all see who for her she is but the men have issue except Milo. Seth soon realizes he needs to listen to his wolf but Jameson…well he is a dick. Mega dick who is so blinded with hatred for Kira.
Kira soon learns she is has the powers to save the shifters but a cliffy happens when she soon discovers what is happening and who is leading the daimoma.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Concede: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J.  Chaynie ]

This book releases TOMORROW July 1st!!

AMAZON Buy Link 

I’ve spent the last four years in a Catholic boarding school. A very different world from the one I have found myself being forced into. There is a dangerous game being played, and I haven no choice but to be under his protection. He’s the king, and expects me to bow just like all the others. The more he demands, the more I resist. He’s not just too old for me, or just the president of a motorcycle club. He’s my brother’s best friend, and if he wants me as his queen, he better prove he’s worthy enough for me to put on the crown.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.
Book 1 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. Does end on a cliffhanger, part of a continuing series.

Angie’s Review –

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

First up, I saw a booktok trailer and was like “HEEEEY GIRL” to the authors.  I essentially asked nicely…cough cough begged…..for an ARC of this book.  MC is my JAM and it sounded like something I would love.  It hits all my favs…Best friend’s sibling/age gap/MC.  I was super thrilled when she said YES.  I got the book and downloaded thinking I would get a chapter or two in before I put it down to do housework.  PFT Housework be damned.  Maverick and Tanner had my FULL attention, but I was side eyeing Dom and Dani.  Don’t worry I got questions you two!!

Now I know people are haters for cliffhangers, but I love them.  I really do.  So, I will warn you this is a cliffy but it’s a good one.  Does that make sense?  Prolly not for you cliffy haters.  But for real, I loved it and where it dropped at is a good ending/beginning for the next story.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!

#WOTR21 – #NewRelease – #Review – What a Dragon Wants by Ava Cuvay

What a Dragon Wants by [Ava Cuvay]

Viking dragon-shifter Ty Drekison relocates to LA from his Minnesota clan in preparation to battle the awakening of Níðhöggr, Destroyer of the World. But he can’t stay away from the delicious cuisine of his new favorite Chinese restaurant, or its beautiful owner, who whets his hunger. He can’t seem to say the right things around her, and he certainly can’t reveal his shifter abilities. But with a grim prophesy threatening the fate of the world, can he be blamed for seeking moments of sweet release with her… in bed?

Wu Lin’s newest loyal customer is a sexy Nordic god of a man who makes her inner dragon stand up and beg for bread and butter. She’d give up her family’s red bean bun recipe to get a peek at his mighty hammer, but she’s the last dragon-shifter of her clan, and her time and energy must be focused on the upcoming battle against the demon monster Móshen who is prophesized to demolish the Earth. Even so, Ty complements her in every way. Could it be she has found the yang to her yin… in bed?

This 33K novella is one in the Star of the North Dragon series, which can be read in any order or as standalone novellas.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

What a Dragon Wants, you ask? Fortune cookies and to save the world! I love how this author took two different cultures and intricately weaved them together in such a way that created a truly unique story. Ty is of Viking heritage and Lin is of Chinese heritage. Turns out that both have dragon shifters in their history and both have been prophesied to fight a monster who will try and destroy the world. Ty and Lin both carry a heavy burden. The difference is that Ty has his family to help carry this burden and Lin believes she is the last of her kind. Ty and Lin’s story starts as a slow burn but when they come together, they ignite like something fierce. What they find is a love like no other and a passion that may possibly save the world. There is a delicate push and pull with these two that will have you rooting for them to the very end. 

“I’m not a delicate flower that’s going to wilt. In fact, maybe I am a superhero assassin.”

“We are opposites Black dragon, white dragon; water and fire; Yin and Yang. A complete whole. Out of primal chaos, the universe creates itself, organizes into cycles. Life and death, good and bad, push and pull.”

True to this author’s writing fashion, there is lots of action, with tons of wit and snark, but a hawt and passionate love story woven within. These two are so different but so made for each other. It is hard not to have a crazy case of the feels for them. The beautiful part to this is that Ty’s brothers are getting their own stories! Can’t wait!

Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay writes out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. She resides in central Indiana, USA with her own scruffy-looking nerfherder, kiddos who are growing up without her permission, and two kitties that make her laugh. She believes life is too short to bother with negative people, everything is better with Champagne, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#WOTR20 #Review – Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison) by Katie May

Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison)

I lived my life as a prisoner.

I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.

And darkness.

They tell me I have been blind since birth.

When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…

Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.

Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?

Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.

But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?

Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This is NOT a bully romance. These men are all hardened criminals and extreme alphas, but they adore their female. Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naïve female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses and a group of psychotic, murderous males. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.

BookBub

Welcome to the Land of Misfit Toys…only for Monsters. I loved the concept of this story and was sucked right in once I read the blurb. I am rounding this up to 4 because there were some really amazing parts of the story. I started the book and was completely engrossed, I mean completely sucked in. We start right when Nina is escaping a hell hole. She is blind but can see through other’s eyes. She has been held captive from a very young age. When the author puts in the blurb “ Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naive female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses…”, this is exactly what you will get. Nina is smart but really is painfully naive and at times I had to roll my eyes at just how dense she was. But we get beyond this, she is being framed for a murder she didn’t commit and is deposited in Nightmare Penetentiary, a labryinth prison for paranormal criminals. Little does she know, her best friend, Kai, who was imprisoned with her in the hell hole she escaped from, ends up being king of the prison she is deposited in. But from here we meet all of his comrades, right hand men, lackeys, whatever you want to call them. They are all equally as twisted and insane as the next but all very different from one another. The one thing they have in common is Nina. They are all drawn to her. Here is where the book lost me for a bit…We have to get to know her harem. Which is great and what we need to do but some of it took much more time than needed and sometimes felt a little unnecessary to the story itself. I was expecting more of the “action” and “story” while getting to know these crazy men with all their hawtness and alpha crazy coming out, but it seemed like the “action” and “story” were put on hold while getting to know them. However, the storyline amps back up again and takes you into a lot of “WTFs” and “where the hell did that come from?” type of stuff. So, it indeed drew me back in and turned out to have some crazy twists and turns that I needed. Although this isn’t one of my absolute favorites, I did enjoy the story and am intrigued enough to check out other stories from this author.

Hello!
Well, I’m supposed to talk about something interesting. So I have two cats and two dogs (killing it). I am a romance author. I love to write and read anything with a strong, female lead and the men who love her.

#WOTR20 #Paranormal #Dragons #SeriesStarter #Family – Stealing Hope, A Dragon’s Fated Heart #1 by Beverly Ovalle

Stealing Hope A Dragon's Fated Heart

Amazon Bestseller in Erotica Paranormal AND Erotica Science Fiction

The apocalypse has come and gone.
Those who survived learned to adapt.
Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.

Upon eruption of a volcano, Ari awakens to a changed world, and a knowing that his dragon’s mate is near. He saves her twice—once as a dragon, and again as a man—and wins her confidence.

Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?”

Hope is restless and unfulfilled until she meets Ari, the man of her fantasies. The sensual tension between them heightens with every touch. When their passion explodes, Hope gets pulled into the dragon’s mating ritual…and into a world of erotic sensation she never dreamed existed but now cannot live without. The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author for free off her webpage during a sale.

I love dragon stories!!  Totally love them.  This is the first story in a series, and I am stoked.  I will say I read book 3 first BUT you can totally read this in any order.  Anywho, that is just my little boo boo.

This book starts out and we meet hatchlings Ari, Crag, Hark, Rog, Juevatorj and Belisa.  They are coming out of the cave and immediately Ari feels pain.  His mother informs him that is his mate’s pain.  She sends Ari and Crag out to find the unknown mate.

Ari is a bit nervous because what is she isn’t really his mate?  He really has no clue except once he SEES Hope he knows she is the one for him.  He does make a slight Boo Boo annnnnnd welllllll he steals her. Now Now he does it to protect her buuuuut yeah…its prolly gonna cause issues later for him.

Hope is in pain when 2 men appear and help her injury.  She is drawn to Ari and doesn’t understand why.  But she is throwing all care to the wind and letting what may be happen because she has never felt this way with anyone from her family block.  We learn from Hope that people used to live alone but with the apocalypse they have started to form “Families” or “Blocks”

Poor Crag is not thrilled to be stuck with Ari and Hope all up in each other faces but then Ari starts the change and there is no stopping Hope from becoming a dragon.  AGAIN, Ari kiiinda should have had a talk with his mate because it is surely going to cause issues for him later.

I really enjoyed the introduction to the series.  It’s a great way to learn the characters and their personalities plus learn about the world.

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of thirty years along the way for her own romance.

Her Dragon To Slay (Dragon Guard Series Book 1) by [Mills, Julia]

Lots of sass and the patented cock of her eyebrow have gotten Kyndel through most anything life has thrown at her. But will her moxie help when her destiny falls at her feet on a long dark trip home from work?

Over 100 years of honor and commitment to his ancient clan’s Guard have made Rayne the fearless leader all are proud to follow into battle. When the long foretold pull of his mate makes the calm, cool and collected Commander fall from the sky will he be able to save his mate from his enemies in time?

The chemistry between this strong-willed curvy girl and fierce warrior makes all the difference in the world where nothing is as it seems. The existence of an ancient race of honor-clad, tradition-bound protectors might be hard to accept but now the dead are coming back to life and holding a knife to her neck.

The Universe made her for him now it’s up to them to stay alive long enough to live happily ever after.

A fun and entertaining fantasy romance. I listened to the audiobook and I think the narrator was wonderful. Hearing her voice gave me, what I thought, was the perfect picture of Kyndel. She is smart, sarcastic and sassy. She was on her way home from work one night and men with ill intent were following her. Rayne is our alpha dragon shifter who felt the pull of his mate and came in to save the day. Some of this is pretty typical with shifter books, the universe made Kyndel for Rayne and when they see each other it’s instant love. She doesn’t understand and he does. Rayne gets hurt during the fight and needs to sleep to heal and she quickly agrees to let him come to her home to rest without knowing anything about this man. She is a smart woman and I like to believe she knows better but it ends up working. This is a short story so things move pretty fast. Kyndel takes Rayne being a dragon pretty easily and accepts his world quickly. There isn’t a lot of character or world building going on but the banter between these two is pretty funny. There was more sexy time than action time and I think I needed more story than sex. So, although this wasn’t my favorite, it’s still a good quick story with a little bit of fun, a lot of sexy time, and a pinch of action and story to finish.

Saving Grace (A Dragon's Fated Heart Book 3) by [Ovalle, Beverly]

The apocalypse had come and gone.
Secrets lie buried waiting to be found.
Dragons are not the only ones awakening to a new world.

Grace has always felt a bit like an outsider, even in her own family. She preferred to do things on her own, ignoring her loneliness. That all changes when Rog barrels into her life, opening her eyes to so much more.

Dragon shifter Rog has seen what problems hiding your inner dragon from your mate brings. Saving his mate from a precarious situation, he changes in front of her. Her awe and hesitant acceptance have him wrapped around her finger in a heartbeat.

Together they find a hidden, cryogenic facility. Do they awaken the lost souls hidden in the depth of the mountain? Dare they take the chance of possibly bringing back the diseases to once again ravage their world?

Those are easy questions, but how can Rog explain the mating ritual to change Grace into a dragon involves himself and other dragons giving her more pleasure in a once in a lifetime experience?

I received this book from the author.

Dragon shifters!!  YES PLEASE!!!

This was a great story about Rog and one of his unmated dragon brothers Hark.  They are flying through the countryside looking for food when Rog can FEEL his mate crying out for his help.

The brothers run to her rescue. Rog does everything he can to show his true self to Grace since he saw what an epic mistake it was for his brothers to hide their dragon side from the mates in previous books.    Hark finds it hilarious that his brother is dying wanting to be with his mate but also wanting to learn about her before taking it to the next level.  But Rog is STRUGGLING with his mating ritual needs.

Grace is a fierce woman who has been raising her family’s cattle for over 10 years alone without any help.  She is a scrappy woman who finds lost items from the apocalypse and makes good use of them.  When Rog and Hark appear she isn’t worried but also fears how she feels about Rog.

The group find some unexpected things in the mountain but also can’t deny the pull of the mating.  Enter Indra and Zeru who enter the call from Rog to help complete the mating…holy hot tamale!!  That was something fun to read!

The story of what they find in the mountain, Grace’s family, and the new dragons made me go hrmmmmm…I can’t wait to read more and see what happens with the new dragons.

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of thirty years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

#WOTR20 #ReleaseBlitz #Paranormal #Dragons – The Dragon of Sedona (The Treasure of Paragon #4) by Genevieve Jack

The Dragon of Sedona (The Treasure of Paragon Book 4)

Darkness he can’t forget. Light he’s afraid to remember. Magic that could change everything.

Exiled dragon prince Alexander never recovered from the murder of his mate Maiara, an indigenous healer he met over three centuries ago. Every waking breath is a painful reminder of what he lost, his grief compounded by the constant presence of her immortal red-tailed hawk, bound to him since her death.

When three of his siblings arrive with news that he may be in grave danger, he secretly welcomes the possibility of a violent end to his torment. But as the four reminisce about how they came to know Maiara in the New World, they begin to see her life and death from a new perspective.

For the first time, the source of Maiara’s power is revealed and inspires a new but precarious hope. There may be a way for Alexander to be with her again, but his second chance for a happily ever after is risky at best, and at worst, could cost him the only thing he has left.

I received this book from the author.

GAH I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!  I will say this series does need to be read in order because otherwise I don’t know you will get the true feel of what is happening.  You definitely won’t get the pure joy out of reading these characters and this family if not.

Alexander lost the love of his life.  He has tried every way possible to die but dragons just won’t die and his hawk won’t allow him to die either.  When Gabriel finds his brother and lets him know all his siblings are mated and that things are definitely NOT what they thought when they left their home world, Alexander is unsure about everything.  How can all this be and why would it be this way.

Maiara story is how the Prologue starts out and we see her being chased but a wendigo.  She is a very mysterious women with interesting abilities and gifts.  When she dies Alexander is lost and doesn’t want to continue life without her.  The possibility of having her back is something he wants to complete his life.  He is lost without her and seeing his siblings all happy is killing him.

Seeing the story of the siblings find their mates and the story of their mother’s betrayal to them is continued ark of the series.  I love seeing them all meet up and reacquaint themselves and their mates to the old and new worlds.  I have to say Gabriel and Raven are my favorite couple but maybe that is because of the fact they are the first story???

The last thing Wyatt wants is to put his mate in danger. Natalie never thought she’d have to betray her best friend.

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

GAH!!!  Wyatt has totally been someone I was lookin’ forward to reading since we were introduced to him.  I mean HELLO DRAGON SHIFTER!!!  Yes please!!!

The one thing I want anyone to know about this book is the FEELINGS you will get while reading.  Wyatt is so afraid to HOPE for a mate.  He is beyond numb to the Goddess giving him a mate since he is the LAST Pure Blood Dragon shifter in the world.  He has just thrown himself into helping his friends and packs.  He is over wanting and wishing and just realized he will be alone until his dragon loses his mind, at which point, he will be “put down”.   You can FEEL his loneliness in the story.

When the Goddess grants Wyatt his mate you can actually feel his anger and frustration at this gift of a mate.  He is so scared because any mate of his will be a target.  You can feel his fear and watch him push away this precious gift!!

Natalie, friends, she is AWESOME!!  I mean she is sweet but strong.  She is kind but fierce.  She will NOT be just a wallflower anymore to her friends.  She is starting to realize after being told she is fated to mate a dragon; she needs to be strong and confident.  A dragon needs a strong mate not a weak woman.

Again, friends….the anxiety of these two was so heavy!!  GAH the push and pull and the almost kisses were driving me CRAZY!! I was like JUST FREAKING KISS AND CLAIM HER WYATT!!!!!!

I can’t say enough about the story because it was probably my favorite story so far in the series and that is saying a lot because I am pretty sure Mack, my baby daddy, is not going to like hearing this news!!!

Seriously, if you enjoy angst, heart, more angst and just all out amazing chemistry, THIS IS A GREAT story for you.  Its also a great introduction to the amazing world Miranda has built with the Black Mountain Pack.

Side note: If Stephen doesn’t get a book next, I will cry.  His character was so much fun to read!!!

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.

Wyatt

By: Miranda Lynn

5 stars

Wyatt is a dragon shifter and is freaking amazing!!!! He seems very quiet and reserved but he has quite the past. After the craziness of the previous book he is taking some much needed time off that he never allowed himself in the past. He is going to hang out with Black Mountain Pack. He believes he is the last of his lineage but then again….maybe not. The story of the dragon shifters and their mates is pure gold but heartbreaking nonetheless. As Wyatt goes in search of what is tugging at his heartstrings he finds someone that may be able to save the dragon shifter race. Natalie lives in a town that is full of shifters. This town is a place of peace for them and the humans that are aware of their existence. She has been given a reading of her future and she is not sure if she should take it to heart or not. In the midst of these two and their feelings, the resistance has reared its ugly head. Wyatt is alone and has to seek help from Leo and the Black Mountain Pack to cut the head off the snake all the while trying to help keep his soon to be mate safe. Wyatt’s and Natalie’s story is a slow burn that is thrilling and full of mystery. An absolute page turner. The history of the Dragon shifters in this book is one of my favorite ever. It’s very intricate and super interesting. A must read! Loving me some Wyatt!!!!

Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life. She devoured more books growing up than her little town bookmobile could handle. It was inevitable that she would turn from reading them to writing them. This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.
Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.
You can find her most days either subbing at the local high school or tucked away in her office working on the next story with a cup of java in her hand. She loves connecting with her readers online as well as in real life so make sure to find her on Facebook and check out where she will be signing throughout the year on her website.
