#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.

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.

Fear University (Book 1) by Meg Collett

I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.

My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.

For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.

But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.


This book is recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.

His Precious Cargo (Heart Nebula Series #1) by Ava Cuvay

One illicit lap dance becomes a flight for their lives.

A stripper with dreams of being a princess.
An intergalactic thief with a freighter of stolen cargo.

At the outskirts of space and away from the rigid control of Central Command, Granger entices Kaedi to break her strict no-lap dance policy. The repercussions force her to pack up and hitch a ride off-world in the same freighter he has hired. They discover a passion hotter than a super nova, but their plans are shattered by the untimely death of the ship’s captain and the duplicity of the co-pilot.

The two lovers crash headlong into the clutches of Granger’s best-friend-turned-torture-happy-enemy. When Granger’s heritage is revealed, Kaedi relinquishes the pleasure she finds in his arms, believing herself unworthy. Granger chases after her, determined to convince her she is more precious to him than stolen cargo.

Susan Griscom 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.

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.

#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight – Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Ava Cuvay. Sci-fi Romance author, Star Wars fan, bacon lover, and wine drinker. When not writing (or eating bacon or drinking wine), I substitute teach, help hubby make Disney vacation plans, drive kiddos to/from sports practices and games, and spoil two cats who seem to think I am at their beck and meow (I am). My body resides in Central Indiana, but my brain is off in a galaxy far, far away!

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I’m in the middle of my Silver Cyborg Series, so I’d say “the others after” the first are the hardest. Like writing any story, the middle tends to drag/sag, so my over-arching story is struggling a bit right now. But, this is why authors have critique partners, beta readers, and a thousand rounds of edits!

What comes first? The plot or characters

It depends. I have a lot of ideas that begin with characters and now I have to wrap a story around them. But, I also have a lot of story ideas that I have to populate with characters. I also just have generic ideas I have to do both with. For example, my “Blood King” evolved from the question: What if Dracula was just some wannabe poser from an alien race of bloodsuckers…?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

Blurb writing. How do you cut to the heart of your story, introduce your characters, make it all SOOOOO fascinating that the reader HAS TO buy it right now… all in about 250 words? Ack! The pressure!

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Every time a reader enjoys my stories. It’s like having a stranger compliment me on my children… it confirms that I’m sending quality products out into the world, and that I’m not totally delusional about it 😉

What is your definition of success?

Every book I sell is a success. Every fan I lure, er, gain is a success. Every tick closer to #1 ranking is a success. I count my small blessings because I know they’ll add up to big things eventually, and I’m in this for the long haul (got too many story ideas to quit anytime soon!).

#WOTR21 #BookSpotlight #Paranormal #Series #TwinsieReviewed – Love and the Corps, The Hearts Nebula Series Book 2 by Ava Cuvay

Love and the Corps (The Heart Nebula Series #2)

Bound by duty, two soldiers yield to their hearts’ command.

Captain Jo Behsue has never questioned her career with Central Command’s leading military force—until now. Recent mission failures and the constant battle for acceptance from her fellow Corpsmen kindle her frustration, while the attention of a golden-eyed Klorakian mercenary ignites her body. Wrapped in his arms, she discovers even a scarred, hollow shell of a captain can love.

An officer in the Klorakian militia, Lux fights to return the rightful monarch to their homeworld’s throne—a planet which scorns his genetic shortcomings. He is loyal to his cause and king, but faces a bleak future once their mission is complete. His seduction of the combative yet beautiful Captain Behsue provides a glimpse of hope, and he fights for a life with Jo, who finds only beauty in his defects.

This book is intended for a mature audience. It contains graphic language, vivid relations, and the word “moist.”

Goodreads

Willing and wanting! Packed full of action and sexual angst. Captain Jo is with the Corps and Klorakian mercenaries are their allies. Jo has always been the ugly one. Her life is with the Corps, life and body. She has trained hard and believes she is invincible. She goes on a mission and is saved by the Klorakians. A certain Klorakian, Lux, is the one that saves her. Lux is an outcast himself. Full of genetic defects by Klorakian standards. Both are unwanted until they run into each other. Naturally fireworks explode. They both find refuge in each other but Jo continues to fight it as she is constantly trying to figure what is right and wrong. Lots of secrets are uncovered between the two of them. This is a sexually charged push and pull between them but they are always in the middle of a battle. Whether it be with the PITAS or with their emotions. They overcome many obstacles and then begin to wonder if they are worth each others time. This is such a crazy ride. Love the characters and the world building (or space building).It’s outstanding! You feel like you are right in the middle with the sights and sounds of all the soldiers. This author has an incredible knack of pulling you right in the story and making it where you absolutely don’t want to put the book down. Well done, Ava! Another out of this world story!

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. Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly”, without Jar-Jar Binks, and with a lot more heat.

She resides in central Indiana with a hubby who makes her laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. She enjoys the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at her own foibles (yeah, she laughs a lot).

She believes life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#WOTR21 – #Review – Tin Man (Silver Cyborg Series Book 1) by Ava Cuvay

Tin Man (Silver Cyborg Series Book 1)

Officer Adam “Lemon” Lehmann volunteered for experimental cybernetic upgrades to save his life, but the decision killed his career. Now working as a bar bouncer in a society which both fears and loathes cyborgs, Adam wants to lay low until either his aging human parts, or his glitching cyborg parts end his lonely life.

Eve Myer has critical information about her employer’s corporate corruption which is killing cyborgs. But when the internet whistleblower she meets at a bar takes a fatal shot meant for her, she clings to the sexy yet reticent bouncer’s offer of safety. She finds both protection and passion in his arms even as an unknown adversary is determined to destroy her information, and her.

Adam and Eve struggle to keep their own secrets in the face of their escalating feelings and the mounting threat on their lives, even when that threat comes from each other.

Book One of the Silver Cyborg Series trilogy. This story has a romantic happy ending and a storyline continuing to book two.


Goodreads


Amazon

Time, choices, mistakes, regrets, fate…and MadDog2020!

When Adam was dying he made a choice to accept cybernetic prosthetics to save his life, but now being a cyborg means he is existing in between worlds. Happy to be alive but nothing to live for. He was shunned for his choice and lives a solitary life for fear that he will glitch and hurt someone. Eve is a smart and strong woman who found out the company she works for is killing cyborgs. Her objective is to get this information to the right people and ultimately save the cyborgs. When these two meet you can feel the connection right away. They have a slow burn type of chemistry. One absolutely worth waiting for. He knows something is off with her but can’t put his finger on it. One thing leads to another and BAM! Their lives have been slammed together and now both of them are in danger. 

In true Ava fashion there is quite a bit of snark and sass with some seriously hawt scenes. Believe me, you don’t want to miss any of that. One of the things I loved most about the story is that it wasn’t predictable. It consumes you because the conspiracies are crazy and when you see how things change at the drop of a dime it keeps you turning the pages. Add a little MadDog2020 and the mention of toilet paper hoarding and you’ve got yourself an awesome story! No, seriously. These are mentioned and were perfect additions (so now you totally have to read it because you have to know if it’s true!) but the love story that occurs is breathtaking. A sort of Beauty and the Beast scenario, if you will, with a wonderful happily ever after. However, the real zinger is near the end. There are a few characters that are going to become big players in this trilogy and I can’t wait for the next. Bring it on!

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hi! I’m Ava Cuvay. I write hot Sci-fi Romance and children’s picture books under another name. I like long romantic walks on the beach at sunset and… HAHAHA, I can’t even type that with a straight face. Seriously, exercise is not my jam. But I do live for romance stories, Star Wars references, wine, bacon, and inappropriateness.

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

I write at the dining room table, which is the central hub of the household. Not saying I’m particularly prolific while I’m there… especially if hubby is at his computer. But at least there’s no TV in that room to distract me 😉

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Chatting with the readers! Meeting new people, talking about writing and romance with other kindred spirits, and (see previous answer) wine and inappropriateness.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Gena Showalter or Kresley Cole, because their voices are the reason I started down this path. But honestly, I’m impressed by *anyone* who writes and publishes… it is an honor to be among them!

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

Oh hell no (Can I say that?). I write whenever I can, when the muse strikes, or when the house needs cleaned.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

When Twinsie Kelly bought my first book at my first signing (which was the first WOTR). I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped and I stared blankly for several seconds, assuming I’d misheard. You mean, someone actually wanted to spend their money on my book?? Best. Feeling. Ever!!!

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

I hate to dust, so I’m not overly sentimental about “things,” but my favorite “book” is a journal where I wrote all the funny and delightful things my kiddos did when they were babies. Oddly enough, I don’t write much in that journal not that they are teenagers… Hmmm….. 😉

Better Where it's Wetter

Alana LaRue assumes the sexy merman pictured on the lake house wall is “just art.” Then a violent storm topples her into his arms and she discovers the ocean isn’t the only thing that gets her wet.

Originally published in the Crossroads Romance Authors “Lake House” Anthology, this 13K short story has been expanded, with more details and a love scene added.


Goodreads


Amazon

“Be nice to the sharks, pretty mermaid. They’re not mean. They’re misunderstood.”

Alana is on  Aquata-Prime housesitting. Well, the house is surrounded by a lake and the only way to get to it is by boat. She is from the city but has done everything she can to land this job in order to be closer to the water. The house has a mural of a beautiful merman on the wall and she cannot help but be drawn to it. A storm comes in and she finds herself in the arms of the beautiful merman.

#Review – Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3) by Ava Cuvay

Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3)

 

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amidst murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?
Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?

“Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy” is Book 3 in The Heart Nebula Series. Like it’s interstellar namesake, The Heart Nebula Series is a loosely-connected cluster of stand-alone Romantic Sci-fi stories with sassy heroines, gutsy heroes, passion and adventures set in a galaxy far, far away. In essence, it’s the stuff of stars.

 

Goodreads

 

We have all been at a point in our life where we just need to get away from it all. Kaz decides to go to a popular destination-planet to relax and unwind. This place just sucks! Literally and figuratively. She is at a spring break type of place and she is kidnapped and taken to the other side of the planet that no one goes to just for fun. She is placed in the dungeon and is fed on by a monster. She is finally freed by King Rune and his way of apologizing is to have her spend her vacation at his palace. Rune has been brought back to life after 1000 years of being gone to find that his home has been run into the ground.

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.

And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#NewRelease #Paranormal – Blood King, The Heart Nebula Series Book #3 by Ava Cuvay

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amid murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?

Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?

Goodreads

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. Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly”, without Jar-Jar Binks, and with a lot more heat.

She resides in central Indiana with a hubby who makes her laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. She enjoys the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at her own foibles (yeah, she laughs a lot).

She believes life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.
