WICKED ABYSS (Immortals After Dark) by Kresley Cole

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

IMG_8032This fairy tale doesn’t end with a kiss… A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!

The terrifying king of hell…

As a boy, Abyssian “Sian” Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster—just as she’s been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.

Meets his match.

Princess Calliope “Lila” Barbot’s people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can’t remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.

Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?

As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast’s cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?

Cori 5 Stars

I loved WICKED ABYSS! It was a sexy twist on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale with the King of Hell and a fairy princess. I loved this couple and I’m excited about the direction of the series storyline with the Møriør. I’m hoping we’ll get another member of the Møriør’s story next. Please be the soap opera watching Dragon!  The Immortals After Dark series is a series I can read over and over again and never get bored. I love Kresley Cole’s heroes and all of her heroines are kick-ass and so much fun. If you’re a PNR fan and haven’t read this series yet, you should grab them now and settle in for a great binge read. The stories are always exciting, scorching hot and so much fun. Kresley Cole is one of the queens of paranormal romance.

DRAKON’S PREY (Blood of the Drakon) by N.J. Walters

Publication Date: April 24, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

Drakon's Prey CoverValeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragon, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.

When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.

He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.

~*~*~*~

Cori 4.5 Stars

I loved Tarrant! DRAKON’S PREY is the second book in N.J. Walters new paranormal series, Blood of the Drakon. I love dragons and if you’re a dragon fan I highly recommend this series! DRAKON’S PREY had plenty of danger and smoking hot romance plus it features a sexy dragon who’s a computer genius and a heroine readers can route for. N. J. Walter’s new world of dragons and knights, set in present day, gives readers a new and unique paranormal world to get swept up in. I’m loving this series and I can’t wait for the next book!

Drakon's Prey Teaser 2

Excerpt

“What’s your name?” she suddenly demanded. She’d kissed him and didn’t even know his name.

He opened the refrigerator door and pulled out several packages.

“Hey.” She knew it was crazy to demand anything from this man, but she was past all caution. “I asked you a question.”

“And if I answer it, you’ll never be able to leave here.” The way he said it, with little inflection, stopped her in her tracks.

It was a variation of “If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you.” It was used in the movies all the time, but Valeriya didn’t think this man was joking. “We both know I’m never getting out of here anyway, so why don’t you tell me who you are?” Maybe if she befriended him, she could get him to release her.

And then where would she go? The Knights were everywhere.

She swayed as her knees went weak. All she’d wanted to do was warn Darius Varkas about the Knights and go back home to her life. Now she feared she was truly going to die.

“What the hell?” Her captor was around the counter and caught her before she hit the floor. He scooped her up as though she weighed nothing and set her on one of the stools on the far side of the island. “Are you all right?” He hovered beside her but was no longer touching her.

It was as though he was afraid to touch her. She wasn’t sure if that was for her benefit or for his. She should be trying to figure out a way to escape, fighting the growing attraction she had for her captor. She wasn’t a guest here, but an unwilling visitor.

Unfortunately, it didn’t quite feel that way. It suddenly occurred to her that her intuition was silent. Yes, he was a very dangerous man, no doubt about it, but she didn’t feel as though he was a danger to her.

Her gift had chosen a really bad time to go haywire.

“What does it matter, if you’re going to kill me?” She’d rather get it over with than to drag it out indefinitely. And she really didn’t want to be tortured.

He swore, long and fluently, and in a language she didn’t understand. Did that mean he wasn’t American, or did he simply know other languages?

“Tarrant. My name is Tarrant. And I told you I wasn’t going to kill you.”

She rested her elbows on the counter to steady herself. “For now. You said you weren’t going to kill me right now.”

He swore again. “No one is killing anyone.

RIDE ROUGH (Raven Riders Series, Book 2) by Laura Kaye

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Synopsis

RIDE ROUGH - coverMaverick Rylan won’t apologize for who he is—the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he’ll move heaven and earth to save her.

Alexa Harmon thought she had it all—the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she’s fallen for a façade she can’t escape—until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.

Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance—one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn’t going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I enjoyed this fast-paced exciting story of Maverick and Alexa. The problems in her life were so realistically portrayed and the characters real. Her mother’s mental health issue was handled realistically without dramatization, including how it affected Alexa. The portrayal of her abusive fiancé and how the situation had progressed was also spot-on. All that played well into the sexy love story and made Maverick even more perfect. Love, sex, friendship and hardship all rolled into one nice story.

Excerpt

“What am I going to do? My entire life is wrapped up in him. My job. Where I live. My car. Where Mom lives. Everything. Oh, God. This is going to be a nightmare, isn’t it?”

Maverick grasped Alexa’s hands. “One thing at a time. You’re out. You can stay here as long as you need to. I have plenty of room. I’ll help you through it. That’ll give you time to figure out what it is you want. There’s no rush.”

“Okay,” she said. “Okay. God, thank you.” A shiver raced over her skin.

“You don’t have to thank me. I’m so relieved for you that I might fall the fuck over,” he said, his thumb rubbing over her knuckles. She almost managed a little smile. “Your hands are like ice, Al. I shouldn’t have made you stand her all this time when you’re soaking wet.”

Alexa shook her head. “It felt good to get it out, Maverick.”

“Glad to hear it. Would a hot shower make you feel better? I can find you a T-shirt and a pair of boxers to change into while your clothes dry.”

All the TLC and understanding he was giving her reached right inside her chest. When was the last time someone had taken care of her this way?

The last time you were with Maverick. The truth of that thought made her breath catch. “Yeah. I’d like that,” she managed.

He gave a tight nod and stepped back, and she missed his heat immediately. “Uh, good. That’s good. You remember your way around?”

“Of course,” she said. How much time had she spent here over the years? Even before they dated? At one point, Maverick’s place had practically been a second home.

“You okay?” he asked, watching her.

She pushed off the door. “I don’t know yet,” she said, coming to him. “But what I do know is how grateful I am to you. For everything. For being there when I told you not to. For listening. For just . . . being you.”

“Always.” He crossed his big arms and ducked his chin, like something about the exchange made him uncomfortable.

“I mean it,” she said, and then she pressed onto tiptoes and kissed his cheek, his stubble tickling her lips. “You saved me tonight.”

“No,” he said, eyes flashing, one brow arched. “You saved yourself, Al. I was just your getaway driver.”

Staring into one another’s eyes, the tender moment stretched out, morphed, suddenly flashed hot. Being so close to him set her body on fire, and finally she could actually consider acting on it. Need roared through her, a living, breathing thing. “Maverick,” she whispered.

“Fuck, Alexa, I think you better go take that shower,” he said, his jaw ticking. “Now.”

She released a shaky breath and nodded. He was right. Of course, he was.

So, showering. She could handle that. Afterward, God only knew what she was going to do.

Spotlight, Review & Giveaway: MIDNIGHT TARGET: A Killer Instinct Novel by Elle Kennedy


IMG_7974

MIDNIGHT TARGET: A Killer Instinct Novel by Elle Kennedy

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance


Synopsis

IMG_7976From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge…

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach…but first they have to make it home alive.

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

Wow! What an action-packed finale to this series. It brought back all the players from the past, for an all-hands-on-deck mission. Since it was a rather tense situation, there wasn’t as much banter as usual, but enough to keep me happy. The story wasn’t just about the hot romance between Cate and Ash, it also pulled back the love affair with Liam and Sully. So, there is some M/M action – which I found was more romantic than Cate and Ash’s. I really enjoyed the drama, romance and happily-ever-after.

Review: A FIRE IN THE BLOOD by Amanda Ashley

IMG_7879

A FIRE IN THE BLOOD by Amanda Ashley

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

IMG_7870“I see a man. He is old. Very old. He will come into your life in a moment of danger. He will watch over you and protect you.” The gypsy’s hand gripped Tessa’s tighter. “He will bring you death,” she whispered, her voice like the rustle of dry leaves. “And life.”

Ten years later, when Andrei Dinescu saves Tessa from a vicious attacker, she has no idea that the handsome stranger the gypsy fortune teller predicted is not a hunter but a seven-hundred-year-old vampire. Darkly powerful, unbelievably compelling, he is obviously pursuing Tessa, but is it her love he’s after or her blood?

~*~*~*~

3.5 stars Donna

This was a fun light romp through a dangerous vampire world. Tessa handled her new reality quite easily, but with the handsome vampire Andrea…how could you not. That being said, she sometimes took the new information too easily. The love and romance are there, but light on the sexual aspects. Perfect for those who like their romances less explicit. A fun quick read.

Review: THE LIBRARIAN AND THE SPY by Susan Mann

IMG_7867

THE LIBRARIAN AND THE SPY (Librarian/ Spy Escapade) by Susan Mann

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

IMG_7860Shelve under: Libraries, Spies, Falling in Love, London.

Adventure-hungry Quinn Ellington solves mundane mysteries for library patrons while indulging her taste for intrigue with her favorite spy novels. But her latest research project entangles her in a mission to decode the whereabouts of a weapons cache from a priceless work of art before arms dealers beat her to it. Her adventure is filled with fast cars, stolen treasures, international intrigue, and a budding romance with suave, handsome “insurance” agent James Lockwood. Daring rescues and intense covert flirting ensue.

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

This was a fun romp through a mystery, with unique clues at every turn. It would be the perfect book for those that like their romantic suspense light and not so steamy. It’s a true librarian’s novel as well, so be prepared for a lot of book cataloging and research information. I thought it bogged it down at one point, then just enjoyed that it was a big part of the mystery. My other comment would be that James, a spy, would be more confident with a woman. That being said, it was a fun story.

About the Author

IMG_7859

Marilyn Stevens Photography 

I write contemporary romance novels infused with humor, adventure, and suspense. My first book, The Librarian and the Spy, features, unsurprisingly, a librarian and a spy. Write what you know, they say. So I did. The librarian part, not the spy part.

My writing career didn’t begin until I was in my late 40s. Now I’m honored to be one of those odd people who will have their first book published after 50. Seriously, you just never know where life will take you.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in History from UCLA (Go Bruins) and a Master’s degree in Library Science from San Jose State University (Go Spartans). I live in Superior, Colorado (where 100 years ago the coal was deemed to be of “superior” quality), with my husband, Ken, our daughter, Sarah (when she’s not away at college), and Lucy the Golden Retriever.

When I’m not writing, I read, eat, and watch more sports than is probably healthy. I’ve been known to do all three at the same time.

Review: THE LAST GOOD COWBOY (Morgan Ranch) by Kate Pearce

IMG_7856

THE LAST GOOD COWBOY (Morgan Ranch) by Kate Pearce

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Western/ Contemporary Romance

Synopsis IMG_7852The Morgan ranch has seen its share of bad times. But as the four Morgan brothers are drawn back to their childhood home, the nightmares of their past give way to the promise of a new beginning…

Ry Morgan has always had a thing for Avery Hayes—one more hope his twin wrecked for him, pretending to be Ry to kiss her at the high school prom. Eight years later, Ry has had enough: he’s quitting the pro rodeo circuit, moving home to California to mend fences, and letting his brother clean his up own messes for a change. Reclaiming Avery’s stolen kiss is at the top of his agenda…

But Avery has changed. Her rodeo career ended with a fall that left her lucky to be alive, let alone walking. She hasn’t been on a horse since, and between surgeries and fighting off everybody’s pity she hasn’t done much else either. Ry is strong, confident, and sexy as hell—exactly what she thought she wanted at seventeen. Now, she’ll have to protect the safe space she’s made for herself—or risk it all for a dream she thought would never come again…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

This book had a nice message of overcoming things from the past while keeping yourself open to hopes of the future. I liked Ry and his interactions with his family, it all seemed so natural and easy. Avery’s character seemed a little forced, but that can be explained by all she was having to overcome. At times Ry seemed like a very patient man, and I’m glad he was. It’s a gentle love story with enough heat to make me smile. I liked it.

Spotlight, Review & Giveaway: THE CHOSEN (Black Dagger Brotherhood) by J. R. Ward

IMG_7718

THE CHOSEN (Black Dagger Brotherhood) by J. R. Ward

Publication Date: April 4, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

~*~*~*~

Synopsis

IMG_7709A scorching forbidden love threatens to tear a rift through the Black Dagger Brotherhood in J. R. Ward’s newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Xcor, leader of the Band of Bastards, convicted of treason against the Blind King, is facing a brutal interrogation and torturous death at the hands of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet after a life marked by cruelty and evil deeds, he accepts his soldier’s fate, his sole regret the loss of a sacred female who was never his: the Chosen Layla.

Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor’s life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear—even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death.

As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love . . . or destinies that have long seemed set in stone.

Cori 5 Stars

THE CHOSEN was incredible! I love this series and devoured THE CHOSEN as soon as I received it. I couldn’t put it down once I picked it up. I cried, I laughed and a couple of times I thought about throwing the book across the room when characters made me angry with them. I always enjoy this series though and when I finish a book in the series I immediately want the next one. A lot of new things were introduced in this release and I can’t wait to see how things will turn out for a couple of the characters. I was left with some questions and J. R. Ward answered a couple of them at her signing but a few will probably have to wait until the next couple books release. The ending felt a little rushed with Xcor, Layla, Qhuinn and Blay. Like a couple of steps were skipped in their story. THE CHOSEN introduced a lot of new directions in the series storyline that I’m really excited about. This series never gets old and it’s always exciting. I highly recommend this entire series for paranormal romance lovers. Each book is a standalone about different couples, but I recommend you read them in order to fully enjoy the series. I can’t wait for the next release!

WARNING – SPOILERS

Here’s a few highlights from the Q&A at the signing!

Full Q&A is on J. R. Ward’s Facebook Post HERE

Q: Will V be *in* the next book?
A: Yes, V will be in the next book.

Q: Does V cheat?
A: Fair question. In my books, the HEA is never static. If you want to know the answer, I will tell you. (lots of ‘yes’es) Ok, gonna pull a Bill Clinton and ask, what’s the definition of cheating?
(answers varied from “emotional” to “touching” to “full on f***ing”)
Okaaaay then. No, he doesn’t cheat. I’m not gonna tell you it doesn’t get ugly. But, he does not. Where he and Jane are at, is very real. It’s not just that Jane is busy, but in long term relationships, you can pull apart. Something brings them back together, but they’re going to have to learn this lesson.

Q: Will we see the Bastards in the BDB world?
A: The Bastards are going to be interwoven into the BDB world.
