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 voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.
You know the saying “Save a horse, ride a cowboy”?Well, if that cowboy happens to be a VC Warrior that’s even better and with Ronan that’s who you get, a vampire warrior cowboy!!!
Mira we met in Steve’s book, Invisible Warrior, she’s Kira’s sister. To recap they’ve been running all their lives from the evil Orjyll.He wants the Dragonfly coven dead so that his powers can return.
Mira is scrappy, she fights the pull she feels for Ronan, but come on we know in the end no one can fightlove for long.She also learns that she is more powerful than she ever knew.
We also get to see Ronan on his home turf, his ranch riding a horse!!!Can you say yummy!!!! Lol!!!
While the group is on the look out for Oyjyll, the mates are training to become warriors too and boy is there drama with that and our boy Jared.
That Teresa gives us Mira and Ronan’s story along with what is going on with the other Warrior’s is why she’s one of the best.Yes, her readers want new stories, however we also want to know what is going on with some of our beloved characters, it’s the best of both worlds.

The Ties That Bind is book 4 in the Ariel Kimber Series.
Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.
The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.
Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.
And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.
This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series.
The Ties that Bind, Ariel Kimble book 4 by Mary Martel
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Man, this book…in a word….INTENSE!! There is a lot that goes on this this book plus a hella-lotta of set up for the next few books. You better buckle in friends because shit is about to get crazy!!
Before I begin, I gotta say I LOVED seeing Ariel spend time with Dash *Blushing* I dunno what it is about him but he is just *Sigh* so sweet. I also loved Ariel starting to date the other guys she hasn’t bonded with. We see the bonds she has with Her Salt & Pepper Twins, Uncle Panty Thief, Tyson, and even Dash but Her date with Damien…seriously put him on my radar!!! Then her time with Julian even if it was brief…..Yeah I loved it!!
You guys so much happens in this book…like for real…so much. Rain makes an appearance and I am still not sure if he is the wonderful Father Ariel is hoping for OR a Sociopath…like I am on the fence and you will be too when you read this book. We see more of the Council, Chucky and even *GASP* Annabelle appears in this book. *Grumbles under my breath about that skank*.
But the biggest reveal comes when we find out about Ariel and her Biological Witch Family….WHOOOOOOO that is some heavy stuff!!! But I think learning more and more about the Council gives me the chills because Ariel is gonna have some serious problems if they find out her true nature as are her seven coven boyfriends!
I cannot wait for more because this series is getting just so much better and more complex with each story!!
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Nellie this was jammed pack. Ariel discovered her real father was out there. Between her and her boys having to deal with the Council and dealing with the past this was an unforgettable read.
There is so much in this book I/m not sure my review will do it justice. The council is having Ariel do blood magic to find her father. This doesn’t make Quinton happy. Not only this but the council brought back Chucky and Annabelle back into their lives and ugh that is all I’m going to say about that. Then we do get to meet Rain, Ariel’s father, to be honest I am not sure what to think of him.
I loved to see Ariel and the guy’s relationship grow. Even though they all have trust issues after being hurt in their past we are learning more about each of them. I like how we are learning about the guys along with Ariel. Each of them has a different personality and Ariel reacts to them all differently. I have to say my heart is opening more toward Damien. Tyson made me sad when he asked Ariel to keep secrets from others.
This book kept my attention and was hard to set down. I am intrigued to see what will happen next.
A few of my favorites
The girl has a serious mouth that she had no problem popping off whenever the mood struck her (and it stuck her often enough), but being mouthy and unafraid to speak your mind were a whole lot different.
I don’t think you know how to just be. Be in the moment. Be happy. To just breathe and not have to be fighting for something or fighting off someone.

The fork in the road in front of me screamed go right.
Giano gave me life.
I gave him death.
The path to peace inside of me was paved in his blood. Can I ever believe in love again?
Instead of going right, I veered left into the depths of a world unknown.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I was a HUGE fan of Stay. If you haven’t read it, you need to stop and read that story first. You have to read it in order to understand what is going on in the series.
This book takes placed right after *sniff* Giano’s death. I am still so sad about that yet Chelsea still says it had to happen….sigh…anyway, Angelina is a mess. She is guilt and hurt and sad and lonely and just A MESS!! She misses Giano with everything she is. She has Uncle ZoZo there to help her pick up the pieces but its just not enough.
After his death, she packs up and goes to college to try and move on with her life. She meets and falls in love with Shawn who also has ties to “The Families.” No matter, we see her thriving and mostly learning to love and trust……However, Angelina soon learns that the “PAST” Giano tried to shelter her from is not gone. Her past is going to come back to haunt her and her new love.
I am so excited to see the final installment. Fallyn returns to kick some ass. Angelina is the sweet face to our girl but when Fallyn comes out to play, ya’ll better be ready. She is not happy and she is going to be leaving a trail of blood in her wake!!!
Chelsea Camaron is a small town Carolina girl with a big imagination. She is a wife and mom chasing her dreams. She writes contemporary romance, erotic suspense, and psychological thrillers. She loves to write blue-collar men who have real problems with a fictional twist. From mechanics to bikers to oil riggers to smokejumpers, bar owners, and beyond, she loves a strong hero who works hard and plays harder.
She couldn’t remember her past but looked to me like I was her future.
My walls were built. My heart was cold. My emotions vacant.
After being alone for five years with only my motorcycle club at my side, she was who I had been searching for. The one I had needed all along to light up the darkness surrounding my life. Just when I thought I had her, just when I thought I could finally allow myself that happiness I didn’t think I deserved. She was ripped from my hands…
Be prepared for an incredible mind scramble! Eve is literally in the midst of a mind scramble. She has no clue who she is or why she is running but she knows it’s bad. Greyson is a hardcore MC guy who has done some shady things and is and has been totally closed off from anything new. When Eve lands in Greyson’s arms he can’t help but want to help her…and she sees him as her savior. But the problem with all of this is the fact that Eve has no clue who she is and Greyson is a total dick to her because he doesn’t believe he is good enough for anyone so he continues to push her away. The story itself is a rollercoaster full of emotional heartache with some laughs and some crazy HAWT stuff!!!! I am by no means a hardcore MC reader but I fell into the King’s Harlots series where Greyson first appeared and I just cannot get enough of this man! He has such a past that I wanted to uncover and get to know. And our heroine, well she put the cherry on top.
“Wind whipped around me, slapping me in the face and cutting into my skin like broken shards of glass. Sticks dug into my feet, the pain slicing through me but no matter how much agony it caused, I ran faster and faster. I didn’t know where I was going. I didn’t know what I was running toward. All I knew was that I was running from something. Whatever it had been, it was evil. Worse than the Devil himself. I didn’t know how I knew that. I couldn’t remember. But I could just feel it. “
“Eve. Sent from God to tempt me. F*** my life.”
“Hate me, beautiful girl. It’ll keep you safe.”
If there is one thing I have learned about the author with the past series and this book is that there is no end to the twists and turns that can come up. The banter between the MC members and with Eve is funny and definitely keeps Greyson on his toes. He is in constant turmoil over whether he can be the man he thinks he has to be for her and she is trying to figure out if her attraction is love or just that she needs someone to latch on to. But, whew! When the plot twist comes…and there is a couple, it will blow your mind! It is jammed pack full of surprises!!!

I remember nothing of importance.
The only clues are in the ruins that surround me.
Walking into the club, the growly voice behind me entices me to learn about myself. To look at this moment instead of the past. To find out what my new life can be if I give it a chance.
He’s excessive, he’s empowering, he’s dangerous.
He’s more than I bargained for.
The ex-MMA fighter that owns the hottest sex club in New York is everything I should avoid.
I swore it would be only one time, but as his hands roam I’m not sure this is something I could give up. Not even for a glimpse of who I was.
As I build new memories, can I give them—and him—all up for the past I’m missing?

They “run” into each other and things start to sizzle. But then duty calls and Rush is called away. She gets into some trouble and Rush comes to her rescue and from here on out things get crazy insane! From here I refuse to go into details as there will be no spoilers from me. I cannot tell you enough that the supporting characters in this story along with how the characters are all interwoven are incredible. You will find out more about the accident and when you do it will smack you in the face. I literally gasped at this point.

FULLY AUTOMATIC (Book 4)
CHRISTMAS STALKINGS: A NOVELLA (Book 4.5)
Val, Brad, and the kids…and a stalker! – a suspenseful story
SLASH AND BURN (Book 5)
Is theirs a match made in heaven…
I received this book for an honest review from the author and honest you shall get!!!
I am sitting here at my computer sobbing, literally sobbing over this book. I went through a box of tissues and a packet of tums. IN-FREAKING-TENSE was this book.
I am a fan of really emotional, gut wrenching, tear your heart out and stomp on it while it lays on the floor kinda books!! This book sooooooo qualifies.
Val is such an amazing person who is so giving and loving but seems to be stuck in the ever emotional toxic love of Ethan. Ethan is just a true measure of addiction and doesn’t appreciate Val for all she is worth. His idea of “chasing her” is screwing everything else that has a skirt on or getting so high he cant even function. This is pretty much their relationship but the addiction continues to get worse and worse as does his behavior and attitude toward her. I think the author did a great job showing the true relationship of a couple when addiction is involved. It is heart wrenching that Ethan has had emotional and physically abusive relationships but he is so self involved he has no idea he is doing the same thing to Val.
There were a few scenes where I broke for Val when she was confronted by Ethan’s wondering ways. I feared for her because she knows in her heart he is not a “good person” but the party scene absolutely crushed me along with her. I think, like Val, i wanted him to have some redeeming qualities…..but the party killed me. I broke for her and me at that point. Then I broke for the man I wanted to see Val with. The man who loved her, supported and cared for her even though she was stuck in this web of Ethan lies and betrayal.
Well along the way Val does develop some emotionally sustaining and loving relationships. SOME of the “relationships” I was like “you go girl!!” I loved the men who helped her through tough times with Ethan. However no matter what, she would always return to Ethan. This dance goes on for a few years.
I am not going to talk specifics because I will totally end up giving away the whole story BUT if you love rocker books and you love emotionally raw “real” books then this is the book for you. seriously. i cannot wait to read the books for the other band members!!!!
Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.
Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.
You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.
