Vampire's Soul (Vampire Queen #14) by Joey W. Hill

Loss left them only rage...Until they found each other…

Cai doesn’t want to be with anyone. He doesn’t want a damn servant, he doesn’t want to be associated with damn vampires. Rand just wants to forget his human side, stay in his wolf form and find a satisfying and hopefully violent, bloody way to bring it all to an end.

But when a young female vampire’s life is at stake, the Vampire Council drafts Cai to enter a dark world he never wanted to visit again. Rand is too honorable to let him go alone, and the only way that can work is if he’s Cai’s fully marked servant, bound to the vampire for all eternity.

So fate decides these two lost souls need each other. Even if they have to tear each other apart to figure it out.

Note: While this title can stand alone, recommend first two books of series or one of the earlier standalones, like Beloved Vampire, to gain familiarity with the Vampire Queen world

My review:
m/m, m/m/f
Vampire's Soul is a fantastic addition to the Vampire Queen series. Rand is a depressed werewolf and Cai is an angry made vampire. These two lost souls come together in the most unlikely of ways and change each other on a fundamental level that may just be the best thing that happens to them. This story is filled with a lot of m/m loving so if that isn’t your thing you may want to skip this one but I have to tell you, you will surely miss out. As with all of this authors books there is so much more than sex going on between the characters and never has it been more evident than between Cai and Rand. As a bonus we get to check in with a couple of favorite characters from previous books. Grab a drink and settle in for a hell of a read.

Wolf in her Soul (Salvation Pack #8) by N.J. Walters

Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her—the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He’s just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she’s the assault victim on a case he’s working on, and there’s a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she’s his mate.

Hannah Burdette has a secret she’s never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who—or rather, what—she is. There’s a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her “impure” blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn’t have to be alone anymore, she’s wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

My review:
Wolf in her Soul may be the 8th book in the Salvation Pack series, but can absolutely be read standalone with no issues. I really got a kick out of werewolf Detective Reece Gallagher even if he did get familiar with ½ werewolf Hannah Burdette while she was a traumatized victim. I guess finding your mate overrides common sense. Other than that I really enjoyed this book and will have to go back and read the earlier books now that I know they exist. If you like werewolves and romantic suspense you should enjoy Wolf in her Soul.

Dark Swan (Otherworld Assassin #3) by Gena Showalter

The Alien Huntress series is back with fan favorite AIR agent Dallas Gutierrez from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling paranormal romance author Gena Showalter, who doesn’t disappoint with this sizzling hot alpha hero.

Lilica Swan isn’t quite human or otherworlder; she is the best—and worst—of both.

She is willing to do whatever proves necessary to save her sister from the seductive and deadly Alien Investigation and Removal agent, Dallas Gutierrez, even bonding her lifeforce to his by effectively marrying him. But the bond will fade without consummation. Can Dallas resist his insatiable desire for the powerful beauty? Or will she lead to his ultimate downfall?

My review:
I LOVE THIS SERIES! The cover is perfect. AIR agent Dallas Gutierrez is a manwhore who has been through hell and back. He is a one and done kind of guy. Until he meets hybrid Lilica Swan. But as bad as his past was she has had it worse. They are perfect for each other that is if they can keep from killing one another. Oh what fun it is watching them fall.
I absolutely adored this story. I really wish the author would do more with this world.  
This story was previously released in the Blood Red Kiss Anthology

New Tricks (Redwood Ridge #3) by Kelly Moran

Loving someone is something you never forget how to do . . .

Zoe Hornsby has enough on her plate. Her pet grooming business tucked inside her friends’ veterinarian clinic is busy, and all her free time outside of work is dedicated to caring for her mother’s ailing mind. Dating is certainly not on her agenda. For all she cares, the town gossips of Redwood Ridge, Oregon, can set their matchmaking sights on someone else. Because no way would she consider sexy veterinarian Drake O'Grady her perfect guy. Once upon a time, she may have harbored a little crush, but he’d only had eyes for her best friend. And the crazy attraction building between her and Drake now? Down boy, down.

After Drake lost his wife to cancer, he’s finally clawed his way out of grief and beginning to feel more like a part of the human race. But he’s appalled to learn his prying family thinks he's ready to jump in the dating pool. And the woman they thrust at him couldn’t be more inappropriate. As his dead wife’s best friend, Zoe is off limits. Even if they seem to share a common sadness, she is too potent a personality to get romantically tangled with. Yet she’s making his heart beat and blood roar like he never thought it could again. And he doesn't want to just exist anymore . . .

My review:
New Tricks was delightfully surprising. I had expected to feel bad for Drake as a widower but I really empathized with Zoe having been through similar circumstances with my mother in-law. I absolutely fell for Zoe and enjoyed watching Drake do the same. For a heartwarming tale filled with love and new beginnings this is the book for you.

Border Town (SLICE Agency Book 1) by Louisa Bacio


A thin line exists between reality and the paranormal, between one country and the next. Lucia grew up stuck between cultures on the border of Texas and Mexico and the wavy lines of reality. With the help of her two sisters, she runs the family ranch, or what’s left of it. A hurricane shifted the river, with land ending up on the other side of the Rio Grande. Mother Nature unleashed more than land wars. A prophecy foretells a supernatural beast slaughtering the livestock every seven years. When the carcasses of goats show up drained of blood, she reaches out for help.

Shaw McDiamond doesn’t want to be stuck in a hick town that’s dry and humid, chasing after the legend of the chupacabra. As part of an elite force of paranormal agents that work the border, Shaw’s group, S.L.I.C.E., exposes aliens of another kind. This vampiric creature is like nothing he’s encountered before, and the woman he’s working with unnerves him even more. 

Lucia and Shaw clash over legend and reality, prophecy and free will. As the killings escalate with the attack of a ranch hand, the storm returns, and the two become trapped in an ever-shifting world they can’t control. But to survive, they’ll have to do it together.

My review:

First get a load of that cover. NUM! Second I’ve read and loved several of this authors works and this is no different. This book has it all a fun love story and a scary mystery and a shocking twist at the end that gave me nightmares (but then again I am a wuss when it comes to the creepy and scary). Lucia is all about home and family and Shaw never had that but when he sees it he discovers that he just might not be able to live without it. This book is perfect for this season and if a wuss like me can enjoy it I know you braver souls will definitely get a kick out of it.

Night's Caress by Mary Hughes

When artist Brie Lark left her vampire ex and her straitjacket of a hometown to breathe free in New York City, she promised herself two things: she’d never go back to Meiers Corner, and no more vampires. The last thing she expected—or wanted—was to be sent back home on an assignment. But her boss at the FBI needs her undercover on a murder case, working with a black-haired, black-eyed giant god of a man who’s her idea of perfection, except for one thing—he’s a vampire.

FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare is an ancient vampire hardened by loss. He’s cut all emotions to protect himself and leads a deliberately steady, almost sterile life. The brash young woman forced to pose as his lover irritates him, with her jangling bracelets and colorful hair. But as much as she irritates him, he finds himself drawn to her lively spirit and he’s tempted to make fantasy a reality.

My review:
Night's Caress is a vampire/romantic suspense by new to me author Mary Hughes. Night's Caress reads like it is part of a series but I had no problems reading it standalone. If you like your vampires big and brawny and a bit judgmental you will love Seb Rikare. It took me a whole lot longer to warm up to him than it did for our heroine Brie Lark. But the further I read the further I got caught up in the action and love. There is a fight scene that had me yelling out loud! It may be the first I’ve read by this author but I can assure you it won’t be the last.

Light of the Spirit (The Muse Chronicles #4) by Lisa Kessler

The gods never sleep...

As the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos lights up every room with laughter and smiles. But there are darker forces at work, and they want to snuff out her light forever.

Cooper Hanover is a hardworking paramedic who healed Lia after a fire, but something happened that day, something medical science couldn't explain. And if he doesn't figure out how it works soon, the next healing could kill him.

Lia's smile and sharp wit tempt him to love again, and he's not going to let anyone, not even the gods, take her from him.

The Prophecy - "Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse." 

My review:
Comedy isn’t always kind but the mortal vessel for the Muse of Comedy, Lia Youlos, is a total sweetheart. In Light of the Spirit she finds her Guardian in stoic paramedic Cooper Hanover. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and she is determined to make him laugh. But they never counted on love. This is a fun addition to the series and we find out a lot of new things. I look forward to the next installment.

Savage Bite: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Savage Shifters #1) by Milly Taiden

Savage Bite: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Savage Shifters #1) by Milly Taiden

Zuri Primrose hasn't been on a date since her divorce over a year ago. About to turn the big 4-0, she's living the life of a hermit without any sex. Her mother isn't going to let her daughter stay single for long. She's gotten Zuri an invite to a shifter ball where she hopes Zuri will find the man who’s going to screw her into a pretzel and give her a dozen babies. Zuri's sure her mom didn't expect for a shifter to up and toss her over his shoulder and run out. Nope. Mom so did not see that coming. 

Savage McKane doesn't do parties. Or people. And he certainly doesn't do fancy clothing. But when his friend, the town sheriff, asks him to help as security for the event, he shows up despite his lack of desire to be there. He didn't expect to find his mate, nor the inability to control his animal, and run off with her. But now that he's got her, he's not going to let her go. His bear is demanding he keep her and Savage is in full agreement. 

Zuri and Sav might be complete opposites, but that doesn't stop the love growing between them. Zuri is realizing powerful truths about herself; she can’t live without him. But will she stay alive long enough to tell him? For Sav, nothing is more important than getting his mate to realize his love for her. He didn't run up a mountain with her on his shoulder just to let her walk away. He will happily tear anyone limb from limb who tries to stop him. 

My review:
Savage Bite is the first in a new series by the fabulous Milly Taiden. If you like your males big, brawny and alpha you are going to love bear shifter Savage McKane. Zuri Primrose is a 39 year old divorcee and has been having a tough time finding herself again. Getting caught up by a big ol bear who is claiming she is his mate shouldn’t be the gateway to finding her younger self but it does it for Zuri. This is a fun sexy read that will make you want a bear of your own.

Bound for a Bite (A Vampire Rogues Book) by Chris Marie Green

A Hot Vampire Romance with Ultra Sexy Bite!

A vampire’s erotic revenge is always best when it’s served hot. And that’s Edmond Marburn’s plan as he tracks down Gisele, the female vamp who betrayed him, robbing him of his soul two years ago with her bite.

He’s never going to stop until he has her.
But when he does catch up to his luscious prey, he finds the tables have been turned.

Edmond is no longer the pursuer—he’s now Gisele’s angry captive.
The carnal games are about to begin.

She’s sultry, sensual, and she’s pulling out all the racy stops to tame this beast who has vowed to destroy her.
But what neither vampire counted on was finding something within each other that draws them together in a sexually charged connection—one that binds them, obsesses them, and ultimately goes deeper than vengeance…

This is the sequel to the first book in this miniseries, Hot for a Bite, and I hope you enjoy!                                                                                                                  

My review:
Bound for a Bite is the follow up to Hot for a Bite. This is Edmond and Gisele’s story. I’ll admit to not having liked either too much in Hot for a Bite. Edmond was super EMO and Gisele was a bit of a spoiled brat. This book teaches them both things that their long lives didn’t. They end up teaching each other. I loved Sam and Corinna’s sub story. Bound for a Bite is sexy as hell but I will admit to wanting to slap both Edmond and Gisele in the head at times but the ending made it all worthwhile.

Ax To Grind (Kenni Lowry #3) by Tonya Kappes

Southerners keep their secrets swept under the rug, but what happens when that rug goes up for sale?

Bestselling author Berlye Stone, the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky, has died and put all her worldly possessions up for auction, but not without leaving one more manuscript behind. A hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon.

When Beryle’s assistant turns up with an ax in her back and the only witness is in a coma, Sheriff Kenni Lowry reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. Her poppa’s ghost returns to help piece together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble. With the help of Deputy Finn Vincent, can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?

Books in the Kenni Lowry Mystery Series:

SIX FEET UNDER (#4) Spring 2018

My review:
Crime is much more fun in small town Kentucky.  Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a murder to solve and a town full of suspects including her Poppa except he is already dead and so has an alibi. In Ax To Grind we have murder, mystery, small town gossip and a bit of romance. This is the perfect book for a cool autumn afternoon’s escape.

Demon Hunting with a Sexy Ex (Demon Hunting #5) by Lexi George


Southern-fried demons. Hell-raising rednecks. And one killer ex-boyfriend...

This with is on fire

Cassandra Ferguson McKenna, aka the Witch of Devil River, has only one thing to say to her demon-hunting ex: We are never ever getting back together. Sure, Duncan Dalvhani may be the hottest thing this side of the Mason-Dixon line. He’s got a body to die for—which is hard to ignore when he skinny dips in her river every day—and swears he loves her. But as a demon hunter, Duncan is the sworn enemy of a demonoid sorceress like Cassandra. Give him another chance to break her heart? Witch, please. But when Cassandra is attacked by a werewolf, Duncan not only comes to her rescue, he helps her take on a band of magic-drunk moonshiners, fire-breathing demons, shifty shapeshifters, and a pet Sasquatch named Sugar. Welcome to Alabama. But when a portal opens up for even more hellaciousness, Cassandra has to admit that Duncan is slowly opening her heart—to a whole new world of unearthly delights...

My review:
Welcome back to Hannah Alabama where the paranormal is normal and the absurd is an everyday occurrence. In this installment we get Cassandra and Duncan’s story. Cassandra is a witch who knows how to hold a grudge. Duncan is the Dalvhani warrior who broke her heart. It has been almost 200 years and Duncan is determined to get her to forgive him. But he will have to do it while they fend off deranged werewolves, fire-breathing demons and trying to figure out why everyone wants the orb.
This is a fun addition to the series and the author gives us clues as to who may be hooking up in the future. Watching Cassie deal with fear of being hurt again while dealing with the nuttiness that is her life is a total hoot. I loved watching Verbena grow and look forward to learning more about her in the future. This book can be read standalone but is much more fun if you’ve read the earlier books in the series.

My review:
Bulldog's Girls by Ann Mayburn is an incredibly sweet tale of love and survival. Amaya is a survivor. She has survived an incredible ordeal and come out the other side stronger than before but it came at a cost. Now she is under attack again. She and her daughter head to the small town of Green Haven to escape the new threat and meet retired NFL football player Paul “Bulldog” McGregor.

Resisting Redemption by Amabel Daniels


Desperate for a paycheck after forfeiting a chance at her dream career, Roxie Malone accepts a job at a law firm, assisting a hard-to-please and too tempting criminal attorney. Struggling to censor her sarcasm and adjust to the expectations of the challenging man, she maintains one goal. Do not get fired. As long as she refuses to mix business with pleasure, she might have a shot at earning the bonus at the end of the case.
Me, assistant. You, boss.
Losing the drive that made him one of the top lawmen at his firm, Grant Newland takes a leave of absence at the worst possible time. Upon hearing his friend is charged for murder, Grant races back to work to fight for justice. But concentrating on the case is easier said than done with the gorgeous, no-nonsense assistant trailing behind him.
Blurring the lines…
Roxie and Grant agree to leave their pasts behind them, opting to swallow the pain of the sacrifices they’d made. They focus on answering one question. Who killed famous singer, Josh Warren? Chasing clues and stumbling over dead ends, they try to deny their attraction to each other. It’s only a matter of time before they can debate whether it might be better to tackle their case as a team, instead of resisting each other.

My review:

Resisting Redemption is the best mystery I’ve read in awhile. Yes, there is a romantic element but it wasn’t as exciting to me as the who dunnit was. So many suspects and so many motives. The ugliness of the crime was offset by the sweetness of the budding romance. I really enjoyed this story.

Nicknamed the big bad wolf, Dr. Paxton Noble is a sexy shifter notorious for his bedside manner and nocturnal activities. When an unidentified woman is rushed through the emergency room doors, his life is turned upside down. Something about her scent stirs more than just his libido. She stirs his wolf. She’s unconscious and now he’s compelled to figure out why and wake the sleeping beauty.
Evelyn Grisham is no princess, but the unsuspecting woman is a pawn in a game that's left her comatose. Attacked in the park, this feisty cat isn’t taken down by a pricked finger on a spinning wheel, but a syringe filled with venom. Now, Evie is stuck in a dream world that only Pax can enter.
Pax wants to do more than wake Evie. She's his mate. He has to figure out how to bring her back. The twist? An unexpected connection that brings reality into dreams with a lot of paranormal steam comes to the rescue. He'll have to use all his smarts to wake his beauty, before dreams are the only communication they have.

My review:
The Wolf's Dream Mate is a sexy fun take on the Sleeping Beauty story with werewolves and shifters. The hot werewolf doctor has found his mate but she is in a coma and a kiss to wake her just isn’t doing the trick. Follow along as he tries to find the key and enjoy their sexy dreams along the way. I will admit that Nurse Carol may have been my favorite character in the story. This is a really fun read.

Break of Day (One Night in South Beach #3) by Andie J. Christopher

Carla Hernandez needs to drop off the glamorous Miami grid. Her aunt's house in Havana seems the perfect place to get over being dumped by her fiancĂ©—and figure out why she keeps messing up her life. But photojournalist Jonah Kane’s unexpected presence is one sizzling mistake she’s hungry to make.

Jonah thought his favorite Cuban refuge would help him get some badly-needed peace. Still, he’s ridden out way worse than the tropical storm trapping him with Carla. And he’s going to handle this spoiled little princess on his own dominant, seductive terms just until the storm is over. Too bad this sexy wild card only makes him only want more. And more . . .

Now Carla’s back home—but not quite alone. When her baby is born, she’s going to raise it on her own, no matter how much she still burns for Jonah. But Jonah can’t get over her irrepressible spirit or the passion they shared. And trying to walk away is only making things too hot to resist.

My review:
Break of Day is a smoking hot accidental pregnancy story. Jonah is a big bear of a guy with a gentle heart and issues from the past that have made it hard for him to love. Carla is a petite firecracker who feels like she can never do well enough in her family of high achievers. They meet when Carla is trying to get over her broken engagement. Jonah was just supposed to be the rebound guy. He turned out to be so much more. If you like your romance spicy with a bit of humor you will love this story.

Vengeful Justice (Cowboy Justice Association #9) by Olivia Jaymes


Cowboy Command was only the beginning… follow along as Olivia Jaymes revisits the first couple of the Cowboy Justice series. 

Sheriff Seth Reilly and his beautiful wife Presley have a terrific life - two fantastic children, good friends, and lots and lots of love. Of course nothing worthwhile is ever easy and that’s true for them too. Between their busy careers and the needs of their family, it’s hard to find quality time together. More nights than not, there’s a toddler, a snoring dog, and at least two stuffed animals sleeping between them in bed. 

It’s all pretty boring and routine until the day Seth gets the news that a man he put behind bars has been paroled and is looking for revenge. Seth took what he most loved in the world and now the escapee is going to return the favor. For the second time in her life, someone wants Presley dead and this time the stakes are even higher. 

Because Presley isn’t just the woman Seth loves, she’s his whole world. 

My review:

We met Sheriff Seth Reilly and his wife Presley in Cowboy Command. It’s now several years later and they have two toddlers and Presley is getting ready to open a coffee shop when a nightmare from Seth’s past comes roaring back to haunt them and it may cost him his family and his happiness. I really enjoyed watching these two as a married couple dealing with the stresses of work, family and time. The author made it real without bringing us down. I love Presley and time and motherhood hasn’t slowed her down a bit. In the first book Seth almost lost the woman he was falling for. In this one he may lose the woman who has become his everything. I loved seeing these two as an old married couple. Join them as they dispense a bit of Cowboy Justice.

Destiny Disgraced (Talon Pack #6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize.

My review:
WOW! This series just keeps getting better. New surprises on almost every page give hope for future great reads as well. This story features a couple that will pull at your heart strings in the very best way. Love, action and intrigue at its very best.

Contracted Defense (Safeguard #3) by Piper J. Drake

Time is running out and the enemy is at the gate.
Adam Hicks may be the rookie at Safeguard, but he’s no novice in the field. Retired from active duty after multiple tours and back fresh from a brief rest in New Zealand, he’s itching to return to action. But the challenge he hoped for arrives in an unexpected form: his sexy yet stern new partner.
The last thing Victoria Ash wants is to work with the new guy—especially one as gorgeous as Adam. His relaxed attitude about their first “easy” assignment together—setting up a private home defense network for a reclusive client—doesn’t impress her. Easy usually means trouble. She’s proved right when Adam discovers that the multiple incursions on the physical and cyber security systems aren’t just glitches. They’re under attack…and there’s a traitor in their midst.
As tension mounts, so does the attraction between Victoria and Adam. They must protect their client and the research he’s desperately trying to keep secret. Working together, they have to find the mole before their defense measures, in the fortress and online, are compromised and the deadly secrets they’ve sworn to protect are revealed.

My review:
Contracted Defense is one of those romantic suspense books that involve your brain as well as your heart. This is a high velocity, dive right in, roller coaster ride of a read. I totally enjoyed watching Victoria melt for Adam as the two of them try to figure out the mystery that surrounds their client.
This is part of a series but can be read stand alone.

When Maddie put in an application at the Paranormal Dating Agency, she didn’t really believe she’d find even one man, much less two.
But when Gerri Wilder tells you she has two men simply perfect for you, you better believe it.
Of course, Maddie assumed she’d have to choose. When her dinner date includes two smoking hot men, she doesn’t know if she should run—or embrace the possibilities. As it turns out, Parker and Curtis are very much in love but feel an incompleteness only a third can fix, and they’re determined to find their mate.
Now Maddie’s about to be the lions’ share…and it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
Her Mane Men is an MMF Dating Agency Shifter Romance featuring a curvy woman and two hot lions ready to claim their third.

My review:
Maddie wants a love like her friend Roxanne has. Roxanne met, married and moved away leaving Maddie to deal with their crummy boss by herself. But though Roxanne has moved away she is still looking after Maddie by gifting her with a gift certificate to Gerri Wilders Dating Agency. After reading this story I think Maddie owes Roxanne big time. Gerri sets her up with not one but two hot guys who are willing to do whatever it takes to make Maddie their third.
This is a fun, sexy and truly sweet read.

Kiss My Asteroid: Galaxa Warriors (Paranormal Dating Agency #14) by Milly Taiden

Kiss My Asteroid: Galaxa Warriors (Paranormal Dating Agency #14) by Milly Taiden

Discover a brand new race of Alpha males ready to find their mates in a dangerous warrior planet. Sassy women traveling with Gerri Wilder are in for the journey of a lifetime and a mate that will love them through the galaxy. Are you ready?
Ivy Grimaldi can’t stand change. Ever. But change is something she’s had to deal with a lot lately. Like when her cousin Cassandra moved away to start a new life, baby and all. That all changes when Gerri Wilder shows up at her door with a letter from her cousin. Cassie wants her to come visit. Sure, why not? There’s just one problem. Cassie lives on another planet. A far-the-heck-away planet, with her hotter than hell shifter mate. 

Vander Kasval, King of the shifter warrior planet Galaxa, has his own problems with change. A lead by example kind of a king, he’s between a rock and a hard place. He needs to find a mate to help put an end to a brewing civil war. None of this would be happening if not for a plague affecting only the females of his planet. His warriors and the men of the Palladian Capitol are ready to riot. Vander reluctantly agrees to send for matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. If she can find a match for him and his men, then his world might be saved. 

Ivy agrees to go, if only to make sure Cassie’s okay. Oh, alright, and to maybe find an intergalactic hookup for herself in the process. In a planet full of big, bad, sexy shifters, anything’s possible, right? Ivy’s in for the time of her life in a planet of unimaginable beauty and dangers she had no idea existed. But Ivy isn’t one to sit idly by and let something happen. With two new friends, they’re about to take Galaxa by storm.

My review:
Kiss My Asteroid takes Gerri and three Earth women to the planet Galaxa where the men a big and brawny and they like their women big enough to handle all that. Gerri’s gift is knowing who is a match for whom and she knows Ivy is meant for Vander Kasval, King of Galaxa and as big and brawny as they come just the way Ivy likes them. But now it is up to him to convince her she was meant to be his queen.
I laughed out loud at the initial meeting of Ivy and Vee. If you like curvy women with a bit of attitude, large and in charge men, and a whole lot of sexy loving you will enjoy this book.

Symphony of Fate: a Chronicles of the Fallen story (The Symphony Series Book 3) by Julie Morgan

Symphony of Fate: a Chronicles of the Fallen story (The Symphony Series Book 3)
by Julie Morgan


Two unlikely allies with an unexpected turn of fate. 
Thrust into the world of the supernatural, Cora has grown accustomed to her life as a Succubus. She’s content with taking souls of men and putting on any appearance that suits her. When she received an unexpected task to take the soul of a woman, things take a drastic turn. Especially when the soul was of her friend, Jael. 

When Jael, the Seraph angel, met Cora, she knew trouble would follow, as well as an unusual friendship. She will offer a lifeline to Cora to release her from her contract. If she accepts it, it will change the course of the angel's world. 

As a Succubus, Cora thought she didn’t need love, but when Jael opens her eyes to the possibility, all bets are off. With turns around every corner, Cora will be forced into a choice: deceive her friend and send her into a downward spiral to Hell, or face the consequences of her own actions.

My review:

I LOVE THIS STORY! This story covered all the bases in a very short time. I laughed, I cried and I sighed.
Cora was sold to a demon by her parents. She has been a Succubus for a long time. Over the years she has formed an unlikely friendship with the Seraph angel Jael. Now her boss wants her to claim Jael’s soul or face dire consequences.
Cora is now caught between heaven and hell with no way out. Wait till you see how the author handles this.

Note: Even if you don’t read f/f stories I recommend this one. This is so much bigger than who loves whom. It is about the nature of love itself.

Hold Your Breath (Search and Rescue #1) by Katie Ruggle


In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder...

As the captain of Field County's ice rescue dive team, Callum Cook is driven to perfection. But when he meets new diver Louise "Lou" Sparks, all that hard-won order is obliterated in an instant. Lou is a hurricane. A walking disaster. And with her, he's never felt more alive...even if keeping her safe may just kill him.

Lou's new to the Rockies, intent on escaping her controlling ex, and she's determined to make it on her own matter how tempting Callum may be. But when a routine training exercise unearths a body, Lou and Callum find themselves thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a killer who will stop at nothing to silence Lou-and prove that not even her new Search and Rescue family can keep her safe forever.

My review:

Hold Your Breath is the first in a new series by new to me author Katie Ruggle. I absolutely adored this book and it was all due to Louise "Lou" Sparks. Lou gave me some truly laugh out loud moments. Lou is Tinkerbell tiny but she is strong. She has yet to learn how strong she can be.
I read this book in one sitting. I don’t want to give away any spoilers so I am just going to say if you like romantic suspense or small town romance you want to check out this book.

Hot for a Bite (A Vampire Rogues Book) by Chris Marie Green


A Steamy Vampire Romance with Ultra Sexy Bite!

One sinful night, Kimberly White was bitten by a vampire.
It was the hottest, sexiest thing that had ever happened to her, and his breathtaking seduction changed her from an inexperienced, plain girl into a gorgeous, insatiable woman.

He was mysterious, as dark as the shadows, as wicked as an erotic fantasy.
Then he was gone, leaving her with a constant craving she hasn’t been able to chase away ever since that orgasmic encounter.

In search of more carnal satisfaction, Kim has been looking for her vampire on the sultry Vegas streets ever since, and when she finds him, all she wants is to feel his fangs in her once again.

But Rafe has secrets—and one of them is that he never bites the same human twice, no matter how addicted to Kim he is.
He’s also on the trail of another vampire who’s draining women, and Rafe has no time for attachments like the one he’s starting to hunger for with this human who’s intent on reaching the heights of ecstasy with him…

Dear Reader,
Thank you for picking up this steamy vampire tale! Hot for a Bite was previously published several years ago under a different title, The Ultimate Bite, for the Harlequin Blaze line. I wrote it under another pen name, “Crystal Green,” but since my “Chris Marie Green” nom de plume is already known for my Vampire Babylon series, I belatedly decided to indie publish under this pseudonym.

I hope you enjoy this hot paranormal vampire romance and continue with the sequel, Bound for a Bite!

Happy Hunting,
Chris Marie Green

My review:
Hot for a Bite is a smart, sexy, erotic fantasy. Chris Marie Green has written the definitive Vampire romantic fantasy complete with an angsty Vampire and a young woman who hungers for his bite. The twists and turns are cleverly done and make this story well worth the read.
