Anice (The Cursed Clan Book 5) by Melissa Schroeder




Blurb:
Get the thrilling conclusion to the Cursed Clan Series!

A woman destined to save her family.

Anice has always felt left out. Granted, not on purpose, but when the only female who spent two centuries with her cousins and brother, it's hard not to. Now that all of them have found their mates, she is ready for her happy ending. When she falls for Brody Stewart, Anice is thrilled he is interested.

A man who hides his true self.

Brody has spent his entire life hiding his true self from the world. When his sadistic cousin gives him a chance at freedom, he takes it. He has no issues seducing a woman--until he meets her. Anice is his mate, there is no doubt, and he cannot imagine a life without her. Now he has to play a careful balancing act protecting both her and his family.

A love that cannot be denied.

When Brody's deception is uncovered, Anice wants nothing more to do with him. Unfortunately, it's revealed he is essential to the last quest. As dark forces close in on the Mclennans, Anice and Brody will have to learn to trust each other, or lose everything they hold dear.
 

My review:
OMG! I cannot tell you how moved I was by this book. Up till now my favorite Mclennan had been Fletcher but his twin Anice stole my heart. She showed that there are strengths outside the physical. And she was so strong.
I usually have a love/hate relationship with the last book in a series but the author handled this masterfully. If you haven’t read the other Cursed Clan books I highly recommend them. The titles may lead you to think historical romance but these are pure PNR.
This was a sweet, sexy and moving story that left me with a smile on my face.

Merry Inkmas by Talia Hibbert




Blurb:
Enjoy another Dirty British Romance by Talia Hibbert, author of Bad for the Boss. Christmas just got sexy…

"There's a beast inside of me. I keep it caged. You drive it wild.”

Cash Evans has come a long way since his troubled childhood, but all the wealth he's earned as a tattoo artist can't fix the hole in his heart. He knows that the sweet barista who haunts his dreams is off-limits... But life doesn't always go to plan.

”There isn’t a man on earth who could ruin me.”

Bailey Cooper is determined to learn from her mother's mistakes. She's seen how cruel love can be, and she's not about to sacrifice her self-respect for a relationship. But when a bad boy with a heart of gold comes to her rescue, she finds herself wondering if this beast might just be her Prince Charming.

Will these two lost souls find a happy ending under the tree this Christmas?

Or is their love doomed to wither with the mistletoe?


Merry Inkmas is a steamy Christmas romance starring a brooding, bad boy hero and a Black, BBW heroine. Be warned: this love is hot enough to melt any winter frost!

My review:
Merry Inkmas is a sweet tale of love with two people who need to let go of the past in order to have a future. This story takes place in the UK so you will need to deal with the cultural differences as well. Overall I enjoyed this sweet and sexy story.

Slumber (The Sleeping Court Book 1) by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret (Audio)

Slumber (The Sleeping Court Book 1) by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret




Blurb:
Once upon a time a princess was betrayed, and her kingdom was stolen from her. She hid her most precious object in the human world, a princess of the blood, in the hopes that the Sleeping Court would get a chance to take their rightful place as high court in the realm Faerie. 

Now, a new generation has come of age, and the crown must be passed. The reigning Queen’s daughter will claim the throne uncontested unless those that remember, and waited to awaken the wayward princess can ally with her. 

But as with all tales of Faerie, it is not without peril, danger and intrigues. For our sleeping princess must awaken, choose her guard wisely, one that will help her save all her allies and avenge her family. 

Or history will repeat itself. 

A Reverse Harem Romance. 

My review:
I read this awhile ago and enjoyed it but the audio version is a whole nother experience. The narrator, Joshua Macrae, adds a delicious accent and wicked tone that adds an element of enjoyment I hadn't gotten from the book. Beware you will blush.

Slumber is the first in a new RH fantasy by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret and a terrific beginning it is. We get to meet Princess Verity who has been living among humans her heritage unknown to her. We get to see her start to build her court and find her powers. I enjoyed the book but was left wanting more. Bring on the next installment.

Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1) by Chloe Neill




Blurb:
First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student's introduction into a society of vampires. 
Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker?and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead. 
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she's traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan ?Lord o? the Manor? Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries? worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude? and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan's attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone's still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war and there will be blood.

My review:
Yes, I know this series has been out awhile and I just got around to starting it. The story is terrific. There are things that didn’t age well (technology, fashions and music) but if you can get past that I enjoyed Merits introduction to the vampire world and her desire to be the best person she can be even if she now has fangs. I’ve already started the next book in the series.

Scrooge Me Again (Paranormal Dating Agency #18) by Milly Taiden




Blurb:
***While this is a standalone story, it is best enjoyed once you've read the other PDA books*** 

Zaria Grande can’t believe she’s invited to a royal birthday party...on another planet and accompanied by a matchmaker! The friend who invited her is clearly nuts. Another planet, hah! But...what if she begs this matchmaker to hook her up? It’s about time she found a strapping hot shifter to cuddle with this Christmas. As long as he’s no Scrooge, she’s open to anything.


Jaded by the Earthling’s materialistic mentality during the holidays, Quint Treyvaal doesn’t care much for parties and socializing. But he wants a mate. He asked Gerri to find him a female and she delivers a few hours later. Talk about express service! Losing his mate the next day isn’t part of the plan. Time to show Zaria this lion’s the only man for her.  
Quint’s hard work to romance Zaria is put to the test when a wrench is thrown into his plans. For Zaria, leaving her life on Earth might be asking too much. Quint’s going to need extra help to get his mate to see that loving him is a chance worth taking.

My review:
I loved this story. It answered so many questions I had about the cultural differences between the Earth women and their alien mates. This is a sweet and sexy story that I highly recommend.

Song of the Soul (Muse Chronicles #7) by Lisa Kessler




Blurb:
His destiny is tied to hers…

Mikolas Leandros carries the Guardian’s mark, and has been working behind enemy lines trying to protect the Muses from the Order of the Titans. The moment he lays eyes on Trinity Porter, the Muse of Music, a power awakens inside of him, a primal need to protect her.

Trinity has lost two of her Muse sisters to the Order of the Titans, and just because the sexy Greek billionaire claims to be her Guardian doesn’t mean she can trust him. 

With Kronos on the loose, the stakes couldn’t be higher as Trinity and her sisters open the legendary Theater of the Muses. But the longer Mikolas works at Trinity’s side, the more he comes to realize that love is the only thing worth fighting for, and in the end, love could save them all.

My review:
Song of the Soul is the culmination of the Muses story. All of the surviving muses have found their Guardians but Trinity the Muse of Music. When she finds out that Mikolas is her Guardian she figures the Fates are out to get her. First Ted and now Mikolas both part of the organization that is out to destroy the Muses and their Theater of inspiration. But all things are not as they seem and watching the truth come to light is as much fun as watching the Muses and their Guardians take on the Titans. This is a sweet, sometimes sad but truly lovely story of love and redemption. A wonderful end to the series.
