#WOTR21 – #Review – The Only Sorceress by Anya Breton

Self-proclaimed sorceress Kora Walsh knows exactly how to use her shiny new MBA. She’ll open a new age shop in a colony of the country’s most powerful witches. But the town rife with bigots doesn’t want her or her sleek shop tainting their perfect community.

Kora would leave if she had any choice in the matter. She’s trained from childhood for her true task—infiltrating coven leadership as her mother’s mole. Failure to do her familial duty is not an option, not when her childhood nemesis is assured her failed soul for an eternity of torture.

And thanks to the colony’s loudest supporter, the beautiful Desmond Marino, failure is a very real danger.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I absolutely love this story! Kora is the daughter of the goddess of magic, but she is half human. What does that mean for her? Yep, she must live topside with all of us humans….and shifters, witches, and vampires, oh my! Since she is half human and has to live with all of us mere humans, she has to work and make a living. On top of that, she has to do “odd” jobs for her mother that include being dropped in strange places to stop rogue witches from doing crazy things. Her most recent mission is to infiltrate the leaders of Wipuk, a secret society of supernaturals. She is up against the odds with all sorts of different creatures all while trying to open her very own “Rarities” store. Kora is an awesome and quirky character who gets put in the middle of some really strange and bizarre situations. But how she handles these is epic. She is sarcastic and witty. It is these characteristics that keep everyone around her on their toes all while keeping you engrossed in the story. Kora’s story is exciting and engaging. I cannot wait to continue this journey.

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #RH #Vampire – Rose, Jewels Cafe #12 by Jewels Arthur

Rose: A Standalone Paranormal Romance (Jewels Cafe Book 12) by [Jewels Arthur, Silver Springs Library]

Meet Rosalie, or Rose for short, she is a gorgeous plus sized heroine who is about to get mixed up in a whole ‘nother world!

Rose has a night job at a bar in Silver Springs called Vee. She loves it because it gives her freedom, free drinks every night, and she gets to spend time with the 3 oh so sexy owners of the bar.

What Rose doesn’t know is that these guys have a dark and dangerous secret and the bar she works at isn’t quite what it seems.

Rose’s attraction to these guys is strong but she thinks she has no chance. The guys are drawn to Rose but they know they could never date a human. Insert one magical PSL then Rose’s world is flipped upside down.

Rose is a standalone reverse harem romance.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.
This was my first book by this author. I grabbed it because she was attending a book signing I was going to be attending. New author to me is exciting right???!!!
The book is about Rose who lives in a super natural town but she is unaware since she s just a human. She works for 3 hottie brothers…er..vampires and lusts over then nightly. She knows they aren’t interested in her that way or are they?
Sebastian, Dean, and Finn have lusted over the curvy and sassy bartender since they met her. Their pull to her is getting strong by the day but they know they can’t have her. It would be unfair to her to either change her or watch her die while they stayed young and vibrant. The men all of a sudden see another vampire taking interest and their world turns upside down.
When Jason, an attractive man, chats up Rose and then kidnaps Rose everything she knew about the world is suddenly changed. She soon learns of her new life and all about her bosses. Rose is going to do everything to get back to the brothers and hope they will accept the new version of her.
I liked the story but I admit the narration was not my favorite so at times I would turn the story off. The inflections fell flat at times. A narrator’s voice can really make or break a story. There were times I felt like she was reading an essay because there just wasn’t any emotion in the “book”.
I did like the story but wonder if my enjoyment would have been hirer with reading vs the audio book to be honest.

Jewels Arthur has lived in Central Illinois her entire life, she is a small town girl at heart and is terrified of city life. She grew up on a farm with 27 barn cats, video games, movies, and books to keep her company. She is obsessed with romance and swoon. Especially the paranormal type — humans are truly overrated.

As a hopeless romantic she wants everyone around her to be in love and wants to read about love all the time. She got married at 19 (suprise suprise) and she had a beautiful baby girl 3 years later when she finished college. She graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies. Her obsession with love led her to decide that she needed to write her own swoony books, with a bit of dirty of course 😉

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Oh yes. This book I was ready for and excited for!!  Lucien and Elaina!!  Whoop Whoop!!  I will say this book is listed as a stand alone but in my opinion, you need to read the whole series to fully love and appreciate this book.  But you can read it alone but trust me you will be mad and wanna kick your butt because this series is awesomeness!!  Just read the whole series, OK? OK!

Lucien…I have loved him so I was happy to finally get his story.  He has some dark secrets and then to find out his mate…ya know the love of his life is HER…and she is one of THOSE…ugh struggle bus time.  But dude is all about claiming his woman!!

Elaine is dying because how can the fates match her with him.  I mean he is hawt and the chemistry is awesome but ugggghhhhhhhh he is a vampire!!  She is not feeling it, buuuut she wants to feel it *wink*.  Crass yes I am aware. LOL

The couple have a lot to overcome like the fact they should not be matched together given the history of their kinds.  They also have this whole “what happens if” thing hanging over their heads.

I absolutely enjoy this series and many others by this author.  She does a great job bringing you in and leaving you hanging for the next book.  I cant wait for more and the world she brings alive each novel.

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.

#Review – Hunting Jessica: Into the Shadows by Elizabeth St. John

Hunting Jessica: Into the Shadows (The Hunting Series #1)

Book 1- The Hunting Series

Hunting Jessica is a heart-pounding, suspenseful, face-fanning paranormal romance that will lead you into a world you never thought could exist. Follow Jessica into the shadows and discover an ancient secret which could alter even your reality.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

As a fan of the paranormal, this definitely was intriguing. This is a fantastical tale of hellhounds and vampires all intricately woven into many twisting paths full of deceit and lies. Don’t worry, there is a love story too. It took me a little bit to get into the story. However, I think this happens a lot with the first book in a series because we are just getting to know characters and the world building is needed. Jessica is a vampire hunter and works for Jay. She wasn’t always a believer of the paranormal but was attacked once and Jay helped her. When she lets one of the men, Gage, who is also a love interest, move into her house, she gets a lot more than she bargained for. Once the secrets are let out she is brought into their world of hellhounds. There is a delicate balance within the hellhound packs and this is one very big part of the web of crazy that this story is. Rayce is another, hawt as a hellhound, man that is the new and current love interest. He is amazing but these two have a lot to overcome if they are going to make it. We find out so much about the insanity within the hellhound packs and the stories go sideways so quick. I never want to give spoilers, and I am trying my hardest not to, but there is so much going on in this book that it is easier for me to just tell you to read it. Naturally, there is always a character that we have beef with, right? I mean, there were times when I wanted to shake Jessica for just being that naive when she is a super strong woman. And there were times that I wanted to shake Jay and Rayce for not doing something to stop the madness that was going on. Overall, I think this was a good read and if you are looking for a new twist on the paranormal, you should give the hellhounds a try.

The Vampire's Fae (Beyond The Mist)

An ancient vampire

For nearly two thousand years, Roman has waited for fate to bring him his mate. After he’s finally given up, she enters his life at the worst possible moment. The demon living inside him threatens to surface, and if he can’t keep it at bay, it may destroy everything in his path. Including her.

A fae princess

To make matters worse, her real father stakes his claim.

Destiny has chosen

Harper walks a thin line between what she once thought to be absolute and her new reality. One wrong step could destroy those she holds dear and ignite an age-old war. Roman falls under a powerful spell, and the one who wields the magic wants the demon inside him to kill his mate. Fate may have decided the two belonged together, but it never promised for how long.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

What a world!!  I love the paranormal worlds Valerie build’s in her stories.  Each series is different and unique with something that I think makes them stand out from others.  This series is no different.

Harper is a mess having dreams about tall dark drink of water plus all of a sudden she is healing people…uhm she is a human so what’s up with this new turn of events??  She had a terrible car accident but now she can heal herself and others….hrmmmm.  While taking a much-needed self-care weekend away to right her anxious mind she stumbles into someone hot as hell AND looks just like Mr. Dream Guy in a field.

Roman is stunned that some human has broken through the veil to his world.  How in the world has this happened and who sent her to his world?  Is she a threat?  Is she going to hurt his king? And DAYUM she is fine!!  Roman is struggling to keep his “beast” at bay.  (Remember when I said I loved how unique her series is…that story line is why….).  When Roman figures out WHO Harper is, he is so confused.  With his friend Storm AKA Harpers long lost cousin, they try to figure it out.

While Roman is struggling with his beast, Harper is struggling with finding out her dead dad isn’t so dead annnnnd he is kinda a dick…like major dick.  Harper is thrust into a new world with enemies, rules, sides, and gifts she needs to understand to fully navigate without losing her life, her mom’s life, or her mate’s life.

Seriously I loved Harper and Roman’s story!!!

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #Series #Saga #Vampires #SpinOffSeries – Pam, The Mate Series book 3 by Teresa Gabelman

Amazon

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I was really looking forward to this book but kinda feel it was just as much Daniel’s book as it was Pam’s book.  This book was Pam dealing with her past that also affected her son Daniel and mate Duncan.  We find out even more about Kenny, what he did we didn’t know about, and who he was in business with we didn’t previously know.  Like dude was so bad!!

We also see Duncan trying too be a badass warrior but also dealing with his son and mate’s need to know and not know what is happening in the world.  We see Daniel coming to terms with what makes him special plus what may be his downfall.  We see Pam struggling as a mom, wife, social service employee and so much more.  She wants her family to be safe and her friends to be ok, but she is also losing control of everything around her.

The book was good as it moved us forward in the world.  We see Duncan and Pam reaffirming their love and commitment to each other, but we also see the struggles that being parents have on them.

I loved getting to know grown up Daniel.  I can’t wait for his real book even though I am sure it’s a ways off since he is not ready for “grown up stuff” yet.

I loved the movement in the story line of Charger and Raven.  I am eagerly awaiting that book in my greedy hands!!

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

A vampire romance with a death grip on your emotions, holding your heart hostage from beginning to end!

This is going to be a tough review for me to write because I don’t want to give anything away. First things first, I love V and Lane. I have from the beginning and am ecstatic that they finally get their story told. The entire family has grown and I just love that they continue on these stories. Since the blurb makes you think about what the tarot reader foretold from the first book for V’s and Maggie’s future, I can’t give you many details of what happens in this story. What I can tell you is that it is super hawt and steamy. There are quite a few surprises that will keep you on your toes. And about the time I thought the book was coming to an end…the madness was only getting started! I was surprised that the spell V casted even worked, and that it worked so well. And on top of that someone from the past shows up to wreak havoc! This story constantly pulls at your heartstrings. This one for me was a very emotional book. When you read it, you will understand completely. This is a definite must read! Oh, and btw… here is my one and only spoiler, the next book is Ari’s! Can’t wait!

Susan Griscom

Susan writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.

Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.

Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.

A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable.

Goodreads

Audio Book

Kindle Book

I read this book back in March 2014. Teresa has just released the audios and I am so enjoying going back and listening to them.  I could not believe how much of the minor things I forgotten over the years. I have to say I still love these warriors today as much as I did 5 years ago.

Nicole is a social worker that takes her job seriously. She is determined to keep the kids safe and it doesn’t matter if they are human or vampire.
Damon, one of the Vampire Council Warriors, was sent to train the social workers on how to protect themselves while doing their jobs. The sparks start to fly as soon as Nicole and Damon first see each other. However, Damon does not want to get involved and attached so Nicole comes up with a “friends with benefits” option.

I love that Nicole is tough and stands up to these big tough Vampires, never backing down never giving up and has no issues getting in their faces. Things start to go bad when Nicole and the others realize there are some pretty mean people out to get her because she is doing her job so well. Damon pulls the “I’m getting too close so I’ll push her away” routine and right after she lays her feelings out on the table.

I also enjoyed the close friendship almost sisterly like relationship that Nicole and Pam have. Seeing Nicole, Pam, and Jared interacting was great. Pam and Jared always made me smile or laugh. I would get aggravated with Damon he would be so sweet and nice and then go all Alpha male thinking he was protecting Nicole but only end up hurting her feelings. Here again Nicole always called him out on it and stood up to anyone she felt was doing wrong by her. I loved that she had pet turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and not the typical cat or dog. The way Nicole collects the money for the kids Christmas party was a gag.

Like i said enjoyed this book today as much as I did when I read it. I am so ready for Jared. The narrator did a wonderful job his voice changes were enough that you realized it was a different character.  I am so ready to listen to all these warriors stories and catch up on all of them.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Teresa Gabelman, writes paranormal romance and contemporary romance with a side of humor in each story. Her heroines are strong and independent keeping the sexy alpha heroes on their toes.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!
