#Review – Blood Bounty (Charmslinger, Book 1) by Liza Street

Blood Bounty (Charmslinger Book 1) by [Liza Street]

Gracie Boswell’s got a charmed bullet, a brand new posse, and a pack of outlaw vampires to kill.

The tiny town of Penance has a big vampire problem—and charmslinger Gracie Boswell aims to be the solution. A whole nest of vampires makes for a mighty fine bounty, though, and Gracie is far from the only charmslinger angling for the job. When a charming local layabout and an old competitor elbow their way into Gracie’s posse, she’s forced to at least pretend to play nice…but trust is scarce in the west, and smart bounty hunters always sleep with one eye open.

But Gracie doesn’t have much time to watch her fellow bounty hunters—Penance’s vampire nest is bigger and more organized than anyone suspected, and there’s at least one traitor in the town’s midst. Soon, Gracie finds herself in the unenviable position of leaning on her posse…and at least one of them isn’t what he claims to be.

USA Today best-selling author Liza Street continues to thrill with a brand new western gothic series of outlaw vampires, sinister fae, and good old-fashioned treachery. Pick up Blood Bounty for a wild ride through the dark and dangerous west!

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Wild West Vampire Bounty Hunter…what more could you ask for?!

If you are a fan of Westerns and “things that go bump in the night”, you should absolutely give the Charmslinger series a chance. I love the idea of the Old West having Vampires and such. I randomly found a recommendation for this on Facebook and was instantly hooked when I read the blurb. Just like in the olden days, for the most part, bounty hunters were frowned upon because they simply found people for money. It is no different in this story. But add another twist to it because our MC, Gracie Boswell, is a human bounty hunter that slings witch charms. They have helped her more times than not and she just keeps her distance from the people that have nothing better to do than look down on her. She is the one that keeps their little towns and lives safe.

She comes across a wanted poster for a nest of vampires that are wreaking havoc on Penance with a great bounty. Money that could help change her life. She goes to Penance to get more info and to start the hunt but ends up with a posse that is very different than she is. She has worked alone for so long that she has an incredibly difficult time working with the posse but it turns out, she is going to need them.

The story started out a bit slow for me but I think that it needed to in order to get a really good feel for the world and the characters. As you get further into the story and things start to pick up, you will get to the point where you can’t stop turning the pages. This nest is intriguing and these vampires are not similar to the ones that have been used over and over in other stories. This series definitely has my attention and I am looking forward to reading book two to see what other trouble Ms. Boswell can get into.

#NewRelease #Vampire #Comedy – A Vampire’s Midlife Crisis , Misfits of New Orleans book 1 by Valerie Twombly

A Vampire's Midlife Crisis (Misfits Of New Orleans Book 1) by [Valerie Twombly]

Her life wasn’t all bad until she woke up a vampire.

Sabrina raised a daughter, started her own coffee shop, and bought her dream house in her hometown of New Orleans. If she had to complain about anything, it would be the seventh level of Hell hot flashes that come with being 53 years old. That is, until she wakes up a vampire.

Her body has never been more perky and her hair is a dream. Problems? Several. A vampire shouldn’t have hot flashes, mood swings that rival a rollercoaster ride, and the urge to drop into a dead sleep at 9:00 pm.
There is a God and he goes by the name of Christoph, the king of the New Orleans coven and a vampire who is hotter than her night sweats. Ready to jump his ancient bones, she manages self control. Barely. When she learns he can cure more than her animalistic urges, she will promise anything.

Enter the misfits. A succubus kicked out of Hell, an old as dirt reaper, a purple dragon whose hiccups light eyebrows on fire, and a cute as can be pooch that’s really a Hellhound. All occupants of the B&B, Fangri-La and Sabrina’s job is to turn Christoph’s new acquisition into a thriving business. Holy hot flashes, she may have sunk her fangs into more than she can handle.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I gotta admit I was nervous how this book would go.  Valerie writes such amazing books that are intense and full of stress so I was like “Can she pull off a comedy??”  DUDE she did it and she did it so well.  This book reminds me a lot of the comedy series from Robyn Peterman I read.

Sabrina is totally me…a mom, business owner, menopausal annnd a vampire????  Ok so I am not a vampire but yeah she wakes up and is a vampire.  Not cool right??  I mean she was turned to save her life but much like my luck, shit goes WHACK so she has to meet the Vampire King.  Christopher is so much fun.  They are so much fun.  Everything and everyone in the book are just fun.

For me that was a great change of pace from the normal book Valerie writes and I am guessing it’s a nice chance of pace for her too. I mean writing bout over the top situations and comedy would be a great change of pace.

My only “complaint” is I would have loved more but I totally look forward to more from this series.

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.

#WOTR23 – #Review – Megan Slays Vampires by Sophie Stern


If monsters aren’t real, why do I kill so many of them?

I’ve spent the last five years training as a vampire hunter. My goal is to hunt, maim, and kill as many of the bastards as I can. They’re infecting our city and each time I manage to kill one, five more spring up in its place. The vampire hunter’s council is breathing down my neck, but I’m already working 25 hours a day, eight days a week.

Then one night, everything changes.

I make a mistake and a vampire catches me. He doesn’t kill me, though. Instead, he brings me into his lair and he makes me question…everything.

What if everything I’ve ever been taught has been a lie?

What if the vampires aren’t the real monsters?

What if it’s me?

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I have no clue how to explain how much you NEED to read this book, but you NEED to read Megan Slays Vampires! Alright! I said it…now that I have that out of my system, I must start by saying this is my first Sophie Stern book and I CANNOT WAIT for more!!!! Megan is quite the badass! But once Donal enters her life, everything turns upside down. She realizes then that she is not chasing the monsters, she is working for the monsters. Once that realization hits home, she really has some things to think about. Megan is an orphan and has trained and slayed many a monster. This is her job, her life But Donal throws a wrench in everything that she knows. Let me tell you about these two. Donal and Megan have this perfect push/pull relationship. They are both witty and their banter is hilarious but can be as sweet as strawberry wine. The intensity between them is palpable. Once these two really open up to each other and start to work together, things really start to go crazy!

“A shapeshifter who can’t shift. A vampire with a vendetta. What an unlikely duo we make.”

This story has everything! There is angst, wit, sexy time (wags eyebrows), and action, but all the same it will pull at your heartstrings. I cannot recommend this book enough!

#WOTR22 #SpinOff #Mates #Vampires #Warriors – Nicole, The Mates Book 1 and The Protectors book 12.5; narration by Jeffrey Kafer

Nicole (The Mate Series) Book #1

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Goodreads

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

WHAT!!!!  OMG THIS BOOK!!!  I am so excited for this series.  When Teresa told us she was thinking about it, I flipped my SHIT!!  I mean we fall in love with these ladies in their stories but then we don’t get to see them as much because the guys get all the action….damn Cock Club right Jill!!??  So, to SEE the ladies all banding together to help in their own way, was amazing!!

Damon and Nicole have been through so much but Nicole always wonders and get stuck in her head….maybe she isn’t enough or the right person for her strong, decapitating heads specialist Alpha warrior, Damon.

I loved seeing her return to her roots and essentially where it all began…….Damon and Nicole both are so confused because they want the best for their mate and their relationship, but the changes are starting to cause some fraying to not only their relationship but also a few others…like say My Alpha Jared.  I am about to nut punch him hardcore…what’s up!!????

I love that no matter what series or cross over series you read with the Protectors in it, the story line is FRESH and the villains are super evil.  I mean the bad guy from the Mates series is also connected to the bad guy in the main series buuuut slightly different.

If you love Teresa and her books then TRUST ME, you will need this book to add to your collection of the rest of her amazing books.

#WOTR22 #reread #Audio #paranormal #Vampires – Ronan, The Protectors book 12 by Teresa Gabelman, narration by Jeffrey Kaffer

Ronan (The Protectors #12)

Most think that newest VC Warrior, Ronan McDonald, is just a laid back cowboy. What they don’t see is the inner turmoil that only his small ranch and horses can tame. At least that was the way it had been until a witch with a beauty none could deny walked into his life.

Running has been Kira Grail’s life for as long as she can remember. It isn’t until she meets a VC Warrior that she realizes she is growing weary, but the forces chasing her will never bend.

Ronan doesn’t believe in witches or curses. What he does believe is that only he can keep Kira safe. Together they fight to bring the once powerful warlock, Orjyll, to his knees releasing the women of the Dragonfly Coven. During their perilous journey Kira vows to keep her distance, but the vampire cowboy has other plans.

I received this book from the author f ran honest review.

Those tall, dark, handsome, and quiet ones are the ones you gotta look out for.  If Jared doesn’t fix his shit I might have to leave him for Mr. Cowboy!!  (Yes, it is that serious between Mr. Kincaid and myself!!)

Ronan has been a bit of a mystery man since he strolled into the series.  He is loyal and dependable for sure, but we just didn’t get a lot on him.  When we see him stumbling over one of THE Grail Withes in Steve’s book, I knew he was going to be a good read.

Ronan is fascinated with the witch who has captured his heart.  He knows JACK about witches and their way but he knows he needs Kira forever.  He will do all he can to protect her even if she doesn’t need it…magic can only be fought with magic and his warrior brute force isn’t what will save them from the Saggy Ass, Grail hating warlock.  Can I say Ronan made me swoon at the scene in the barn with Kira……yeah he has some old school moves and that is ok with this girl *Gives Jared the side eye for being an jackass*.

Kira has run her entire life.  She has done the best she could for Mira and now Drew but is feeling something in the pit of her stomach for Ronan.  She knows staying will only lead to heart break for them both with the curse still alive and kicking.  She decides, after watching her sister’s happiness with Steve, to give in this ONE TIME and hope for a good outcome.

This book has lot happening.  We meet a couple new vampire/witch hunters who might be joining the group of Warriors!!  We also see Jared still being an asshat.  We learn something AMAZING from Tessa but my favorite part of this book is the #GIRLPOWER we get.  Jill, Tessa and Katarina are done being the “little ladies who will sit at home while their men are fighting the war.”  Nope these ladies take it to the next level!  I can’t wait for what happens in the next book with this story line and what will happen with Saggy Ass since the witches and warriors are working together side by side.

#WOTR22 #Reread #Audio #paranormal #Vampires – Invisible Warrior, The Protectors book 11 by Teresa Gabelman, Narration by Jeffrey Kafer

Invisible Warrior (The Protectors #11)

Steve, the self-proclaimed Invisible Warrior, has not had a typical life. Trained by the VC Warriors, he still has to prove his worth, but with humor and sheer will, he refuses to give up.

In one afternoon, his life changes, as do the lives of three others. Steve Richardson has a serious choice to make between two women and someone who holds his heart like no other.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

Holy crap.  Steve grew up and totally manned up.  I mean I will admit I was excited but a little worried because we never see Steve as an alpha guy.  The joker? Totally! But the alpha?  So I was super excited to SEE the story that Teresa was writing for us diehard fans.  Man, Blown away.  Steve totally knocked my socks off.

So Steve in typical form is given grief by the other warriors when gunshots are going off AT THE COMPOUND!!  Now what fool would even think about shooting up the Warriors Compound?  A stupid one for sure!!  Steve is sent in the save a woman who was trapped in a car when he finds out she is in labor.  The two have an instant chemistry and Steve is super attached right away to helping this girl and her child.

Mira has some secrets and is hoping she can hide safely in the Warrior compound until the arrival of her baby.  When she meets Steve, she can feel the connection but can’t accept it because of her family drama.

The drama between the two is awesome.  The more Steve and Mira fall for each other the more you see Steve stand up in a Warrior Way.  I mean even the other Warriors were stunned stupid at this new Alpha Steve.

Their love story is written perfect.  Steve is Steve and he says stupid things but Mira loves him for it.  She gives him the love and care he has never had other than the respect and care he has found in the Warrior compound.

The side story of new trainees doesn’t go over very well and we actually have some internal fighting between Warrior brothers over the new recruits….yikes!!!

Favorite scene : any with Steve sticking his foot in his mouth with Slade….it happens a lot and you will love them.

#WOTR22 #Audio #reread – Blaze, The Protectors book 10 by Teresa Gabelman, narration by Jeffrey Kafer

Blaze (The Protectors, #10)

Haunted by a past he’s struggling to forget, Blaze once again finds himself a VC Warrior—something he swore would never happen. Confident he could easily walk away again, his connection to a certain redhead makes that decision harder than he imagined.

Trying to fit into the Warrior world, Katrina holds a secret that could ruin the new life she is fighting to fit into. And having feelings for a certain Warrior does not make things any easier.

As Blaze’s past catches up to him and Katrina’s secret is exposed, they discover a deep bond that neither can fight. It soon becomes clear that a past can be put to rest, but secrets can be deadly.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

Oh Teresa…how do you do it!!  You hit every single book out of the park. Each book brings it and each book delivers!!  Each book makes you really HATE the Villain and fall madly in love with the Warrior….but don’t tell Jared ok.  He gets all jealous when he sees me checking out his brothers.  Alpha’s what can you do?  Just love ‘em extra hard I guess.

Blaze and Katrina.  They steamed up the last book with their agonizing chemistry.  I mean come on people!  WE all SAW the attraction.  At the end of the last book, when he brought her the dog…sigh…..so I was so ready for this book.  I was so ready to see them and wonder who would be fighting it harder…..WELL OF COURSE the Warrior was!!

Blaze has a past and he won’t face it.  This past caused Caroline and Jax some issues with Blaze because his past was haunting Caroline.  The whole “Talking to the dead” can really wear on a girl!!

Katrina was hiding some really big secrets!!  LIKE HUGE!!!!  We find out her story and man Teresa you really out did yourself with the bad guy.  I felt dirty every scene he was in.  Then finding out what Katrina saw and what she has to endure while under her “fathers” care…shivers….

The chemistry between the two is super hawt.  When they finally get started Katrina says the 3 dreaded words that every commitment phobic man dreads and he freaks.  So she makes her peace with them not being together but good old Jared lights her fire again when he shares some news in regard to Blaze and his feelings toward her.  I love Jared..sigh….yes babe I am typing about you..rolls eyes!!

Blaze must face his face in past order to make things right with Katrina all while hiding her from her father and her past.  Katrina must face her father and her past in order to save her possible future with Blaze.

Each book, Steve takes the cake for cracking jokes.  Each book Sid and Jared rile up the newest warrior to fall.  Each book we meet a new hottie and Ronan is nooooo slouch to think about….again relax Jared….stop reading over my shoulder already…it’s a joke….SHESH!!  Warriors.  You can’t live with them and you can’t live without them!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Ok here goes.  I love Sophie. Period. Full Stop.  I want to be her best friend.  I want to hang out and have her tell me what is happening in that beautiful, creative brain.  I have been a reader of her LC Mortimer Zombie books for a bit.  I recently made the cross over to Sophie’s books annnnd I am in love.  Her stories hit my paranormal heart right in the happy place.

Megan is a hunter and working for “The man” to rid the world of the gross and terrible vamps/shifters/snake creatures/monsters/etc.  She is proud of what she does until an injury leaves her a bit weak. A mysterious and sexy as sin vampire with braids and delicious dark skin talks to her and leaves her with questions.  Megan is all WTF is happening to me?  I can’t be thinking about that dude!

Donal is stunned stupid at the sexy, curvy hunter who just killed his good friend, but he can’t help but take a sip off her to see why she is so different.  That one sip…pretty much ruined all chances of forgetting her.   He doesn’t know why she doesn’t know who she really is and is intrigued to find out.

When Donal and Megan meet again, he then helps her see what she has been blind to all along.  She learned the truth about what had happened to her as a child. She learned how “the man” she is working for isn’t as innocent as he seemed plus….she finds love in the most unusual place.  Ya’ll the “Love” stuff…..get some cold water ok…the thigh scene…yes please!!

I loved the constant twists and turns.  I also loved the new mythology that is given in the story. Like the difference between shape shifters and shifters.  I loved so many of the characters.  I need a Jewell and Kyle novella!!  The banter between Donal and Megan was wonderful!!  But I loved the sensitivity, and the creativity Sophie brings when we learn about Donal and what makes his special.

*Chef’s Kiss! I can’t wait for more books from her!

#WOTR22 #Audio #Reread #Vampire #FavSeries – Sloan, The Protectors book 9 by Teresa Gabelman, narration by Jeffrey Kafer

Not only does VC leader, Sloan Murphy, have to keep the peace between the human and vampire race, but he also wrangles VC Warriors in his spare time. It’s a job that could drive a saint insane, and Sloan is no saint, but insane he may be. While his Warriors find mates, he swears he will not follow in their footsteps.

Becky Spencer, his new secretary who he reluctantly employs, is set to threaten every stoic promise he’s made. With an instant attraction that is hard to deny, she fits into his world with confident ease.

Even though Becky has sworn off men after her nasty divorce, she can’t help the desire the sexy and serious Sloan Murphy stirs in her. It isn’t until she sees how devoted he is to his job and the Warriors under his command, that her lusty feelings turn into more. Working in close quarters, they both fight the pull that grows with each passing minute.

Who will win, the secretary, the Warrior, or an attraction that just won’t go away?

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Sloan!! I have been waiting for the boss man to fall and fall hard he did. He TRIED to fight off the sassy redhead but he ended up falling head over heels, as we the reader did as well.
Sloan has been grumpy and moody in every book. I mean I get it. He is the boss and has a lot to run and control so love is not in the cards for him oooorrr so he thinks. It’s not that he doesn’t WANT love but he knows he is moody, grumpy and busy so women don’t take kindly to being 2nd in line for his attention.
Becky is done with men. After her failed marriage she is over men and going to switch teams…LOL then she gets this job with the VC Warriors as the boss’ secretary. He is commanding and intense but super sexy. The chemistry these two have in sooo well written. They are joking and flirting but still keeping the whole boss/secretary thing going. Mainly Sloan is pushing her away and she is hiding for fear of being rejected.
When they have their first kiss…..I was super excited and then watching Becky put him in his place…LOVED IT! She is definitely perfect for Sloan. All the Warriors, except for Sid because she also puts him in his place, love her as do their mates.
The buildup for the next book has me sooo excited for a few reasons….1 – new awesome bad guy. 2. -Blaze…need I say anymore???

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Alright if you read my reviews you know I like to ramble. I gotta start this review with a quick ramble. If you dont wanna read it then skip down to the next paragraph but if you do, then awesome and continue. OK Here goes my ramble….When I started reading I was a HUGE paranormal girl. I had 3 Vampire series that I would read and had on autobuy. Well one of the series fell apart which made me sad but the other 2 have stayed strong. SO I feel I am kinda critical of my first love: Vampire Paranormal. With that being said, I am over the moon excited by meeting the author of this series. It was at an indie author covention. We chatted briefly and I was stoked she sent me a book to review. I drank this series DOWN. I mean I am a HUGE, Gigantic fan of this series. Like I previously said, I am kinda critical of vampire series because the 2 I still read religiously are GOOD but this series is AMAZING!! I love the world, I love the characters. I just freaking LOVE IT!!!!

Ok so if you skipped the previous paragraph you are wanting to know about this book. If you read my ramble and gushing you REALLY wanna know about this book right??? So this is Sid’s book. Sid the smartass. Sid the jackass. Sid the player!! Well Sid meets his match in a feisty local cop named Lana. I have got to tell you I have loved each Warriors woman but Lana really got me from the go. I loved her spirit and she certainly gave Sidilious a hard time throughout the book. They have great chemistry and banter. I love character banter whether between love interests or just family dynamics. If you read this series you will appreciate how much laughing I did because Sid is a RIOT!! The one liners between him and Lana or him and the Warriors were spot on. My husband looked at me like I was nuts cracking up. He was like “your reading a vampire book and not a comedy?” I loved finally seeing the “private” side to Sid. His lack of family and the way Lana’s family adopted him….priceless. When he tells her he loves her and you know he has NEVER has someone to call HIS, made me tear up….huge crocodile tears people.

The side story of Dr. Hottie Mc Hott Stuff AKA Slade and Jill….Holy heck. I am dying. I mean WOW!! I cannot wait for their book and I swear to all that is holy it better be next because I cannot take any more waiting!! I NEED THEIR STORY LIKE TOMORROW!!! OMG and Adam and his search for his girl….breaking my heart already!!!! I mean to have your girl “sold” into a trafficking organization……pit of my stomach for him…….

The villains of this story. WOW! Teresa does a great job creating ‘bad guys” or people you hate. OMG Alice I wanna kick her in the ovaries!! And a certain bad guy is revealed and I remember saying “Shut the front door!! No WAY!!! ” Also the bad guys and their hold over Lana….ugh stressed out!!! Like I said, she can create some seriously bad bad guys!!!

Ok so I hope that my ramble and gushing over this series has made you wanna one click the book already!! Because if you like Vampire or even paranormal this is an amzing series for you!!!
