PROMO: The Fall of Arcades by Azriel Hope

Paranormal Romance – 505 Pages

About the Book:

Farrow Latimer, Prince of the Arcades:

I am the prince of darkness, the executioner and fallen angel royalty who is forbidden, love. No matter how many men or women I take to my bed none capture my heart.

As the Arcades teem with lust, debauchery, and destruction, I neither relish nor abhor my role as the most brutal of all and then I catch her….the small fairy halfling who changes my world.

Rayelynn Astraides, first daughter of the Commander of Landharn’s West Shore:

The fallen angels litter the skies coming to claim us. I am running from the monstrous man my father is to make me marry for failing battle school when they attack. Fallen angels are all about us and in my fear I tuck myself away.

There, beside the tree where I hide, he stands, tall, majestic, handsome… and deadly. He lets me run and I return to the battlefield to tend our wounded as I am a gifted healer. When the beguiling dark angel returns, he takes me as his prisoner.

I see such horror and sadness during my incarceration, but none greater than that which lies within the fallen prince who is disallowed love yet risks all for it.

The Fall of Arcades is an incredible love story with some dark elements, sexual situations, and several polyamorous characters… because when you’re an immortal an eternity of vanilla is just no fun.

Excerpt:

“Can I not wash myself?” I squealed, softly.

“No,” he smiled, “you cannot. Now sit.” He directed me to sit on a shelf carved into the rocks. “You like this more than you’re willing to admit, Rayelynn.” There was almost a reverence to the way he said my name.

I obeyed him because I was being suffocated by the intense unfamiliar feelings in my body’s most sacred places. My sex throbbed. If only he was as kind and gentle as he pretended, I would have submitted to him … and would have willing loved him, I think. I laughed inwardly, I was no better than the wanton girls at home. I knew nothing of him but that he was a vicious killer as were all of his kind. I had to admit, despite my prejudice, there was a greatness in the Prince of Arcades and a deep understanding nature that belied a tender heart. If only he was who he pretended to be.

He slowly spread my legs and began to soap my knees.

“Please,” I begged, nearly frantic.

He lathered soap along the knobs of my joints with an excruciating deliberateness, moving slowly to my shins, then feet, giving extra attention to the hard, calloused skin around my heels. I thrust my hand forward to stop him, but he easily caught it.

“I’ve already told you, your virtue is safe. Let me do this; I wouldn’t do it for most.” His eyes were bright and loving as they met mine and he released my hand to give greater attention to my feet. “Enjoy the fact that I hold you dear.”

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mindy and I are both moms. We know what sleepless nights feel like. We know all about tantrums (no matter if they’re 2 or 18). We know what it’s like to hear pure child laughter.

One of us is married with a large household of help. The other is a single mom. We know there are all types of moms out there and we applaud you all. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.

I know my kids started this thing tonight where they created a ‘restaurant’, even gave it a name. One took my dinner order. One made it. And they even told me they planned on doing it all weekend. Tomorrow’s dinner is already on the menu! They may forget, they may not, but they’re all 10 and under so it doesn’t matter. They made my night and that’s all that’s important.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Until it wasn’t.

Life gets complicated sometimes. You can be happily married one minute and divorced the next. You can become a single father to a newborn baby when that was never in your plans.

Mindy’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Kaler Holt married his highschool sweetheart, had a baby girl and is now a single father. Kaler feels that his ex wife left because she didn’t want a daughter that has special needs. Kaler has made Willow his number one priority. Now that she is starting kindergarten the real struggle begins.

Jenna Winston grew up in this small town. Now that she landed the new kindergarten teacher job she knows that she is going to love her new career. When she learns Willow is going to be in her class she wonders why her best friend would ever leave her daughter behind.

Let me tell you I fell so hard for these characters. Willow is my absolute favorite. She has a presence about her that just makes her shine and everyone that is around her. I felt so many emotions as I read this book. Kaler is an absolute wonderful father to Willow. When his ex wife tries to come back into Willow’s life he has his guard up and Willow’s best interest in mind.

The overall problem with being from a small town means that everyone knows everything about you.

Everyone now knows that Jenna is sleeping with her best friends ex husband.

Something Complained is the first book in the Dirty Southern Secrets series from this author. I have been so excited waiting for this new series. J L. did not let me down with this one! I am so in love and cannot wait to read more!

Review of The Rookie (Fire’s Edge #2) by Abigail Owen

“The deeper this goes, the more I’m sure.” 

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense, Shifters

Length: 298 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with everything he had to earn his precarious place on the Huracán team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.

Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she finds out, there’s only one man she wants—the one who walks away.

However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera….

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author via Entangled Publishing.*

Sera didn’t want to know about dragons. She didn’t want to run a vineyard by herself, even if it once belonged to her family. She especially did not want to keep having dreams about a sexy dragon who wanted absolutely nothing to do with her in reality. What she wanted was to keep her son safe.

Aidan had been drawn toward Sera since the first time he’d met her. He couldn’t even sleep without seeing her in his dreams. But he was the orphan, the rookie, and he had to focus on proving himself to his team. He didn’t need the entanglements of a human woman.

Sera’s temper brought forth her dragon mate traits. It also meant she was a threat to her own son if she didn’t find her mate. Problem was she didn’t want to go to the Mating Council, she wanted Aidan to feel the same way she did toward him. She wanted him as a mate and a dad for her son.

The Mating Council got a little too excited to find out what Sera’s mark showed, but it was all too obvious their intentions, causing everything to go crazy. Add in someone obsessed with Sera who will betray his team and a unorthodox mating that will cause complications not only to Sera but her son.

The Rookie is a stubborn romance with sexy hot dreams turned reality, a stalker like suspense, and a storyline that will capture your attention. Fire’s Edge is a wonderfully entertaining series and I cannot wait to read more.

PROMO: Policy of Truth by Scarlett Holloway

About the Book:

Five years ago, Tamra “Durty” Simon’s life was falling apart, and she
had a one-way ticket to six-feet under. And if it hadn’t been for the
Death’s Angels Motorcycle Club swooping in, dusting her off, and
transforming her into the badass biker she is today, she’d be taking a
dirt nap. Now, she has everything she ever wanted—or so she
thought.

Brett “Sting” Jackson is on a mission, and nothing is going to stop
him—not even the sexy, enticing female biker who makes him hard
with a single look. Too bad he’s lying and keeping secrets from her.
But the alternative could get her killed, and that’s not a risk he’s willing
to take.

It took Sting crashing into her life to make Durty realize there’s
something else in this world she wants to ride as hard as her bike—too
bad fate has other plans for them. When a rival club makes a move
against the Angels, all hell breaks loose. Lives will be lost, secrets will
be revealed, and lies will be exposed. Because in the motorcycle
world, lies may get you hurt, but the truth can get you killed.

Review of The Sage and The Savage (Dark Desire #2) by Viola Calvary

“I like it when you hiss at me, kitten.”

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Suspense

Length: 238 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

Dahlia and Kenny are back and things are heating up.

An enemy stalks the night, targeting psychics in Dahlia’s force. When evidence turns up pointing straight at Dahlia, it’s up to her and Kenny to face off against an opponent more powerful than they had ever imagined. But, when Dahlia is left broken, bloody, and hunted and Kenny is forced to do the unthinkable to keep her out of ancient evil’s grip, they need answers about the nameless creature stalking them. Unfortunately the only being with those answers may be the very demon that’s woken in Dahlia’s mind. And he’s got other plans for the two captains.
Caught in the Puppet Master’s web, hunted by both allies and enemies can Dahlia and Kenny survive?

Kenny’s eyes gleamed with anger and he moved fast, pushing her hard against the stone. Her head snapped back into the hand he’d placed behind it. He gripped her hair tightly.

“You’re mine, Dahlia,” he snarled. “I would’ve torn them to shreds before letting them take you.”

Dahlia bared her own teeth and snarled back at him as the press of his body against hers stirred her insane desire, already so close to the surface when she was near him. That blind, animal lust mixed with her anger and found resonance with him, pushing sanity out of her skull.

She sunk the nails of her hands into the skin of his back as he pulled her head back and bit into the side of her neck. He pressed his body harder against her, keeping her trapped between him and the stone. She felt him hard as his sharp, burning need washed over her mind. The desire to feel him take her coursed through her like fire. She wanted to taste him, feel the emotions boiling inside her spill out and consume him.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

After a large win in book one Dahlia has to face an even bigger enemy this time around. How do you kill a god? She’ll discover how and Leon will be right there beside her whether she wants him to or not. Of course so will Kenny.

“If I find him first I’m gunna tear off his arms and legs and leave him pinned up on my sword to bleed out. If annoys me when people fuck with you.”

Pretty sure Kenny’s dragon claimed Dahlia as it’s own, just as he did. Their magnetism is off the charts and yes, you’ll finally find out why their crazy connection keeps getting stronger.

“Don’t fucking leave me,” he snarled. “If there’s any sanity in my skull, anything that keeps me human, I’ll lose it if I see someone else in your eyes.”

The Sage and The Savage brings us on a new and insane journey. Just when you think things will work in their favor something else will pop up completely changing the game. The pages are filled with ravenous sex, brutal battle, and the strength of a team. Definitely looking forward to book three!
