The Dragon’s Valentine by C.D. Gorri ~

dragons-valentine-2-cd-gorri….Callius’ golden Dragon eyes landed on each of his brothers. He opened his long snout full of rows of razor sharp teeth and loosed a roar of blue and red flame against the whited-out sky.
He would miss them. They were his flesh, his blood, and his constant companions these five-hundred years. But he understood.
Agreed. Take care, my brothers. As head of our family this is my pledge to you, I will find a castle and I will find a mate! Then I will send for you.
Choose wisely, brother. The diamond rose is special.
Farewell and much luck to you on your quest!
Yes! May you be successful!
Callius and his brothers parted ways. It was a bittersweet parting, but the idea that one day they would be a Clan of their own kept Callius on a steady course. His purpose grew stronger with every passing moment.
Soon an idea of Castle Falk began taking shape in his mind’s eye. Not an old stone mausoleum like the one he came from. No, he wanted something new and modern. With a pool! Ha! That would be something!
But first things first, he reminded himself.
Find a mate and claim her.
“Dammit,” Fred struggled under the three cases of booze she lugged up the cellar stairs to The Thirsty Dog.
Being a Werewolf had its perks, but none of them helped her as she banged her elbow on the door frame while exiting the musty old cellar. If anything, she only hit it harder. Ouch!
It wasn’t her fault that she couldn’t see over the cases of long necks, was it? What could she do about her height? Not a damn thing!
So, she was kind of short for a Werewolf. She stood about five-foot five inches tall. Cool for a normal, but next to her six foot plus Packmates, she was tiny.
Her weight was good, she remained a solid buck forty, mostly muscle, and that was without working out. She got enough exercise between her two jobs and full moon runs with the Pack.
Yup. She was one busy woman. But that’s how she liked it. Keep moving, stay busy, no worries. That was something her older brother used to say…”

Blazing Desire by Crystal Dawn ~

Fancher breathed in the sweet scent of the bubble bath mixing in with the aroma of Skye’s arousal and their combined scent from their recent joining. Everything was perfect right now if he didn’t think about what the future might bring.
He stepped into the tub first because he knew it would be a little slippery and he intended to help her in. He held out his hand and she took it so he could hold her steady.
She shivered in his arms as he helped her to slide down into the tub before he slid down behind her. It felt wonderful to be in the hot relaxing water with Skye’s back presses up against him. If she would just move up and sit on his lap it would feel even better.
He poured some soap in his hands and lathered up. His hands massaged her shoulders and she moaned and relaxed. He continued down her back and then worked on the other side.
“That feels amazing.” She admitted.
“I like the feeling of your silky skin under my fingers too. Do you want to sit on my lap?”
“Why? Do you have a surprise for me?” She teased.
“I do and it’s a big one.” He chuckled.

Claiming My Angel by P. T. Macias ~

claiming-my-angel-cover-pt-macias“Hell, fucking hell!”
Jared drinks down the last of the whiskey in the glass. He sits on the bar stool watching the dance floor. He looks up and gazes into Angel’s beautiful glowing violet eyes. He frowns and turns around.
Angelique smiles, her small even white teeth gleam, and her dimples flash. She walks anxiously towards Jared; she extends her long legs in a graceful gait. Her beautiful long shiny black hair flows down her back past her waist. The coral dress drapes softly over her luscious curves.
Her smile freezes on her face as she sees him turn away from her. Her glowing violet eyes tear up, and she turns away blushing. Her translucent white shimmering skin looks like a pink pearl. She takes short quick steps, her back straight, and her head held high. She walks over to her friends blinking rapidly to clear her violet tears away.
“What the fuck! I can’t stay away from her, I see her everywhere, and this is insane. She’s a fucking Angel! How in the hell could I even think of touching her again!”
He runs his left hand through his dark locks and clenches his right hand. He narrows his eyes and looks at her through the mirror behind the bar.
I can’t allow them to see me cry because they don’t have a clue that I love Jared McKenzie. Geeze, my best friend Cindi is his sister, and I don’t have the nerve even to mention it.
The moment that I looked into his beautiful gray eyes, I fell in love. I was his, and the incredible bonding happened. Our souls are one. Mercy, he’s my mate.
I was sent by the Angel sentinel to heal him. I monitor his fragile soul; I poured some mystical love and life into him. I nurtured him back to life when he was dying in that cave alone.

Forever Cherished by Amanda Kimberly ~

forever-cherished-amanda-kimberlyThrough physical and emotional struggles Keme and Chepi will unite two opposing tribes with love.

“My name is Wisakachek, and I have lost my way from my tribe. It is now too dark for me to travel. Would you mind if I camp with you for the evening?”
“No not at all. Please join us.” Keme said.
“Thank you. I was going to try to press on, but I smelled your dinner and the delicious aroma compelled me to stop. You see, I have been traveling for a couple of days and I have not had luck finding anything to eat.”
“There is a bear claiming the deer meat around here, I am afraid.” Keme stated flatly. “You can have some of ours.”
“Do you have a little to spare for my tribe? I was the one hunting, and like I said, it’s been awfully hard to hunt.”
Keme did not want to give up the little meat they had for the tribe, but he was confident that the gods would provide them with meat by dawn. “Yes. We can share some of the hunt with you.”
“But Keme—”
Keme raised his hand to Matchitehew before he finished his sentence.
“You are both too kind. In exchange for your kindness, I would like to offer you a gift in return.” Wisakachek said.
“A gift?”
“Yes. I’d like to offer you the power to hunt for your tribe without the fear of being hunted yourself.”
“And how do you propose that? Are you a magical medicine man or something?” Matchitehew chuckled.
“Something like that, yes.” Wisakachek said with a smile as he continued, “I am the spirit god who is the guardian over an ancient and magical art known as shape-shifting.”
“Shape-shifting? You mean like being able to change yourself into anything at will?” Keme persisted.
“Not exactly. The art of shape-shifting is the animal form of a wolf.”
Keme’s eyes widened.
“A wolf is a powerful creature! It can bring almost any creature to its knees! Maybe not the grizzly that has been giving us trouble, but a wolf is powerful. I could harness its power to feed my entire village! They would never go hungry again. That would be wonderful!”

Love Burns by Josette Reuel ~

loveburn-cover-josette-revelCan a dragon claim Hyacinth’s heart this Valentine’s Day or will love burn her, yet again?

Just over a year ago, Hyacinth’s life had imploded. Her then fiancé and now ex, Tom, was found in flagrante delicto with the next door neighbor. There was a time that Hy would’ve said that she and Tom had a future, but when she ended the relationship she was more embarrassed than sad. Since the breakup, Tom seemed to find every possible reason to bother her – unnecessary meetings with her boss and eating lunch at her favorite restaurants – and reminded her that she would never find anyone to love her overly ample frame.
Even though she was better without him, it had been difficult when she packed up and moved from where she had lived with Tom. She had been comfortable in her life with him.
Since the breakup, she simply went to work, went to the bookstore, the grocery store, and home. As a foster child, she had grown up in many different homes, so even today she had few friends. It was a learned mechanism for her, distancing herself from others kept her from getting hurt. Somehow Tom had forced himself past her barriers and she had broken rule one in her survival guide. Hyacinth was determined not to let it happen again.
Then it did. Lightning struck. That day six months ago when her gaze lifted from her computer screen and fell into the deep blue eyes of a god.
The sizzle that sped up and down her body was everything Hy had ever read about love at first sight. Her heart raced so fast that it felt like it would burst from her chest. Her mouth went dry and she became a blathering fool.

Forever Yours by Heather Kirchhoff ~

I spin around, stalking away from them. I’m not paying attention to where I’m going, and I accidentally run into someone. I step backwards, almost losing my balance, but the person grabs a hold of me. His touch feels very warm. It almost felt like there was something more…but it’s more likely just my imagination.
“I’m sorry,” I mutter as embarrassment rushes into me. I look up at who I ran into, and my face suddenly feels hot.
He has shaggy black hair, with dark green eyes. His skin is a light tan. His cheekbones are sharp, while his jaw is square. His lips are thin. He must be about six feet tall compared to my five eight. His arms are well defined, but they aren’t overly muscular. I can only imagine what his body is like underneath his turquoise T-shirt and black jeans.
Whoa, slow down there, I think to myself, shaking my head as I try to clear my thoughts. No need to go that far.
“Are you okay there, princess?”
It takes me a minute to realize I’m staring at him with wide eyes. I wouldn’t be surprised if my mouth was dropped opened wide, with drool pooling out of it.
He looks irresistible.
Like, the kind of guy I never thought I’d see in person.
My heart stops beating as soon as his eyes meets mine. My mouth feels dry all of a sudden, and I can’t find any words.
He smirks at me, and throws me a wink. Oh man. My stomach flips upside down when he does that.

Books I Read July – October 2016

Dragon Moon

Julie Nicholls

32501925Another amazing book from Author, Julie Nicholls.

I enjoyed Dragon Moon. It’s beautifully written, easy to read and hard to put down.
Julie has an awesome way of bringing her characters to life and I fell in love with them, both human and dragon, and hope we haven’t heard the last of them.

I’ll admit that, at times, this wonderful adventure made me shed a few tears, but it also made me smile.

This book is a great, clean fantasy which, in my opinion, will appeal to fantasy and dragon lovers from mid-teens and up.

 

Save the dragons, unite the races, no sweat.

I’m nineteen and wish I had a clue about my future. Instead of my own bed, this morning I woke in the strange land of Lur Neval. My name is Scarlett, but the Nevalese call me Dragon Mage. Seems it’s my job to preserve the all-important dragons and oh, while I’m here, bring peace to the warring clans. Piece of cake if I can outwit Madoc, the manipulative, evil seer who wants every dragon destroyed. Whatever it takes, I’m here to fulfill my destiny under the light of the Dragon Moon

The Wastelanders

Tim Hemlin

22213025Reading A Friend in Need inspired me to read Tim Hemlin’s Wastelanders.
I was fascinated by the brief introduction to the world and its characters and needed to know more.

The story starts with a bang and had me hooked from page one, with it’s unique and strange world filled with interesting and believable characters.
The plot is intelligently thought out and well written, with surprising twists that add to the complexity of the story

Marvellous!

 

America is controlled by a corporate oligarchy known as the Water Cartel and warrior-priest Joey Hawke finds himself trapped between a mysterious geneticist amassing a clone army and a group of political fanatics convinced that a dead president will rise from his tomb to lead them to salvation. Caught outside his spiritual haven when the Cartel moves against the Wastelanders, Joey is aided by Bear, an enigmatic weapons runner, a lovesick Scrapwoman, and Bernie Hawke, his estranged father. But against the Cartel’s military strength, led by the power hungry Rex Fielder, Joey’s only hope may be Si-Ting, a young woman with prescient abilities–a woman who not only holds the key to his heart but also to an American conspiracy to crown its future with the withered laurels of the past.

The Kota Series: Complete Box Set

Sunshine Somerville

25391754Never a dull moment in this amazing fantasy/ sci-fi series from author Sunshine Somerville.

The descriptive writing brought the various worlds, scenes and situations to life as I joined the four Kota warriors on their journey through space, time and dimensions in order to save humanity from an evil and deadly virus.

The characters are well-fleshed out and completely believable, each with their own flaws and vulnerabilities, and I enjoyed watching them develop as the series progressed.

Each book has a new setting and additional characters, but flawlessly continues on from the previous book in the series.
All four books are filled with danger, excitement and action, plus plenty of twists, turns and intrigue.

This series was a definite page-turner and a good lengthy read that gave me something to get my teeth into!
I enjoyed it immensely and will be looking out for other books by Ms. Somerville.

 

18801788BOOK 1: The Kota
The future is an ugly place, but we are not left without hope…
Earth in Trok’s day is plagued by war and the deadly DRK virus. His brother, Lee Kandoya, joins the Kota people’s movement to fulfill prophecies meant to save Earth, and Trok’s world is turned upside-down as he discovers the truth about his own role as the prophesied Kota Bearer and immortal Interceder.
Five hundred years later, the prophesied Kota Warriors of the Mark Prophecy are at last born. Loree Kandoya is gifted with the mysterious abilities of perfect hand/eye coordination and invisibility. Her brother, Zaak, has mutate-genes that enhance his senses. A girl named Alex turns out to be a telepath. Her brother, Ryu, is blessed with incredible mutate-genes of strength.
However, nothing about these Marked children is what Trok expected, and the world is now in chaos…
Centuries of war have left entire countries in ruin, abandoned, and the global population suffers from poverty, the plague of the DRK, and oppression under a global tyranny known as the Dominion. Soldiers sweep the regions in search of rebels, and hundreds are murdered – or punished with the DRK – as the Dominion rulers hoard their wealth.
Will the Warriors be able to make a difference? Working in the background, Trok knows that if the Warriors are going to bring down the Dominion and stop the DRK virus, it’s going to take a miracle. But how things come together surprises even him.

20570776Book 2: The Ebonite and Her Earthling
For the Kota Warriors, everything has changed. Trok has abandoned them. Cruelthor has disappeared. They’re cut off from Earth, never to return. On their own, what purpose do they serve now?
Ebon is a desolate planet never meant for human life. The Ebonite colonists have long been trying to exterminate the native Kynajabi creatures, and the Warriors soon find themselves entangled in the turmoil of their new world. The Warrior Seer becomes a god-prophet, working to guide the suffering citizens and veterans of the Kynajabi Eradication Effort. The Hunter and the Fighter continue the search for Cruelthor, but soon an unexpected source tells them of a new mission. And the Warrior Leader? Well, it’s up to Cliqani to heal her mysteriously resurrected Earthling patient, who may be able to save the colonists from the native beasts. However, it’s Trok’s Ebonite friend who holds the secret to restoring peace for Ebon and its inhabitants.
Together, the Warriors and their Ebonite hosts must learn to sacrifice for the benefit of others – even others most alien.

22136256BOOK 3: Pharmakon
Phantasya is a world of second chances. It’s also a world fated to test man’s faith. In this supernatural paradise, trials and revelations arise for each Kota Warrior. Rave and Arctos must travel back to Ebon to finish a mission they thought was over. Amu teleports to Rowen and discovered a secret hidden since Earth. Kynacoba and Galcon fight a devilish enemy who could lead the Phantasyans into horrific rebellion against their Guardian.
Meanwhile, the isolation of Trok’s immortality begins to take its toll. Knowing how this future will end, he must do what is right for everyone involved.
But how do you best fight a losing battle? The more the Warriors discover, the trickier their choices become.

23608838Book 4: Zenith Prophecies
The Kota of Zenith have waited centuries for the Warriors. Now, their Empress insists that Rave force their last prophecy into fulfillment, despite what it will mean for Kynacoba.
Shocking them all, Cruelthor is discovered on Zenith with the DRK virus, and it’s then that Amu’s Magi mission becomes clear. But how are the Kota of Zenith not immune?
With the help of Neema and Toel, two Zenoes with secrets of their own, the Warriors must discover what it truly means to be Kota.

Keeping Magic: The Angela Tanner Files #2

C.D. Gorri

32670475Another fast-paced, well-written, easy to read short story from C.D. Gorri

Continuing Angela Tanner’s exploration of her newly acquired witch powers.
The characters are well written and we get a good sense of Angela’s emotions and experiences.

Having read the first book, Casting Magic, as well as the Grazi Kelly books, I think this is a great addition to the series’.
I’m looking forward to following the lives of both Grazi Kelly and Angela Tanner in future books.

 

Teenage Witch Angela Tanner is learning to control her powers, but it’s not as easy as it looks. Especially when everything points to her being a FireWitch. With the help of her boyfriend and Guardian, Jody Nieves, she sets out on a journey to discover the truth about where her powers come from and who it is that wants them. Can she learn control in time to save herself? Find out in this second installment of the Angela Tanner Files.

The Man of Cloud 9

Adam Dreece

30286780Set in the near future, in a world of new start-up businesses and ruthless companies, this book is an intimate and up-close look at the life of Niko Rafaelo, a genius innovator of nano-technology.

Niko and the cast of supporting characters are well fleshed out and the relationships between them are well written and believable.

It’s an interesting and imaginative book, that kept me turning the pages.

 

Niko Rafaelo – a brilliant and driven inventor- is determined to flip the late 21st century on its head with a new take on a banned technology, nanobots.

In a world that has been battered and bruised for decades by endless natural disasters, Niko’s ambitions are seen as reckless and wasteful.

Following in the footsteps of his Silicon Valley heroes, Niko’s startup takes the planet by storm. But what happens when the corporate beast and Niko’s conscience conflict? And what is he hiding?

The Man of Cloud 9 is an intimate science fiction tale of high tech and higher stakes. An all new side of the best-selling author, Adam Dreece.

The Wizard Killer – Season One

Adam Dreece

29838890This book from Adam Dreece is a short but action packed story.
I really enjoyed discovering this confusing world through the eyes and mind of the unnamed main character, who isn’t sure who he is, where he is or why he’s there!

The story clipped along at a good pace and pulled me along with it, but left me with a multitude of questions. I want…no… need to know more about this world and its inhabitants.

 

A world once at the height of magical technology and social order has collapsed. How and why are the least of the wizard killer’s worries.

Leaning my bloody head against the back of the crashed levitating carriage, I flex my cramped fingers. With a renewed grip on the mana-pistol, I steal a quick breath. The others better wake up fast, otherwise we’re all going to burn.

Enjoy all 20 pulse-pounding episodes, and an all new side to best-selling YA author, Adam Dreece.

Recommended for adults, appropriate for most 12+ .

Note: This is written in an episodic, serialized style.

Hyperearth

Marco Marek

24873691Hyperearth is an imaginative adventure book that moves at a quick pace.

I found this book entertaining as I joined Martina and Mary on their journey through Hyperearth, and was amazed, along with them, at the interesting characters they met and the magical items they found along the way.

A fun and enjoyable read for the young… and young at heart!

 

In the castle of city of Lubena, Mary and Martina found a portal to another dimension called Hyperearth. This will be the beginning of various adventures of this two teenager girls, fighting the evil Sathon but also make new friendship and curious discovers.

Ghostly Writes Anthology 2016

51mfu0kl4slIf you like ghost stories, you’ll be entertained by this excellent creepy collection of short stories from a wide variety of authors.
Some stories were scarier than others, but they were all well-written and most held my interest.
As is usual with the variety of tales in anthologies, I found some of them more enjoyable than others.
In fairness to all the authors involved, I’m finding it difficult to choose only one or two favourites, although Cabins by JB Taylor, Canvas by Sarah Moiser, Hello Dear by Stewart Bint and Ruby Kisses by Jessica Wren are at the top of my list…
and I would love to read more of Soul Man by Claire Plaisted.

 

Enter the chilling Ghostly Writes Anthology and be prepared to be scared with 27 short stories from around the world.  Creepy houses, murder mysteries, paranormal and much more to haunt and thrill those who dare.

Books I Read In June 2016

The Guardians

by Gina Moray

I enjoy a good horror story and having read Gina Moray’s short story, Cemetery at Devil’s Bend, I knew I had to read her debut novel, The Guardians, and I wasn’t disappointed… it was everything I hoped it would be!

With this descriptive and wonderfully scary story, Gina had me gripped from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat as the gory body count rose and had me wondering who, if anyone, would survive the terrifying evil.

Not for the faint hearted, but if, like me, you like a good scary book, The Guardians is well worth reading.

 

 

What’s a little deception and murder when it comes to getting ahead?

Runner’s Mill is a small, peaceful farming town, but not without its problems. Fourth generation farmer, Hank Smithson, is one of many, in trouble with substandard crops and underhanded tactics at the hands of his competition. Now he’s at risk of losing his home and livelihood. A mysterious stranger, known only as LaReux, offers him a solution to his problems. Hank quickly becomes seduced by promises of a successful harvest, and agrees to his help. He soon learns that success comes with a price and he will have to decide how much he’s willing to pay to survive.

Lurking in the Shadows

Anthology

This book is a great anthology of short horror stories.
All the authors did a great job with the suspense and ‘horror’ in their own tales – some scarier than others!

The book, as a whole, was an enjoyable read. As always with an anthology, I had some favourites!

I loved the suspense and creepiness of Lily Luchesi’s Too Young to Kill, although at the end I wanted it to continue so that Drew and Adrienne ‘got what they deserved’, as Elisa wasn’t portrayed as a bad person through the story!

I also enjoyed the tension of both Living Nightmare by Savannah Rohleder and The House on Juniper Lane by Jaidis Shaw. Both of these stories were menacing and had great unexpected endings.

 

Embrace the darkness.

Murderous entities, haunted houses, screaming banshees, and sympathetic necromancers are just a few of the chilling things you’ll encounter in this anthology. Follow our authors into the shadows … if you dare.

Cat’s Howl (Macconwood Pack #2)

by C.D. Gorri

Once again, C.D. Gorri reeled me into this story with her descriptive writing and fully fleshed out characters.
The book is a well-paced, action-packed sequel to Charley’s Christmas Wolf: A Macconwood Pack Novella.

I love how C.D. Gorri’s Grazi Kelly, Angela Tanner and Macconwood Pack series all interlink with each other!

I received an ARC of Cat’s Howl from C.D. Gorri in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

 

Cat Maccon, was always a handful, even as a pup. It wasn’t easy growing up in an all male household, but this South Jersey Werewolf is tough as nails. She’s on a mission to prove herself. Causing no end of grief for her older brother, Rafe Maccon, Alpha of the Macconwood Pack.

Cat joins the Maccon County Sheriff’s Department determined to be taken seriously amongst her big brother’s Wolf Guard. Okay, maybe one Wolf Guard in particular, Tate Nighthawk. Tall, rugged, and handsome. He’s the stuff of Cat’s dreams, but she’s been burned before.

When she is targeted by their enemies, led by the dangerous rogue Werewolf Skoll, Rafe assigns Cat her own personal bodyguard. Knowing how his sister hates to be told what to do, Rafe gives her the one Wolf Guard he knows won’t be taken in by her wily ways. Tate Nighthawk himself.

Tate takes his job very seriously and no amount of pouting or lamp throwing will bend him to Cat’s will. Even if she is the best damn thing he ever saw. Old memories haunt him when he is forced to spend time with the one woman who he turned his back on. But he won’t let that interfere with his assignment.

Stuck alone in the woods together, without any way to contact the Pack, their tumultuous past catches up with them. Will this spunky she-Wolf finally find true love or is she too much for Tate to handle?

The Soul Whisperer: A Tale of Hidden Truths and Unspoken Possibilities

by J.M. Harrison

This thought provoking and spiritual story was a fast paced and interesting read.

The main characters were fairly well fleshed out, but the supporting cast were somewhat flat.

The complex tale has intrigue and suspense, with wonderful imagery, however the chapters dealing with ‘the history of the shell’ broke the flow pulled me out of the story.

I received an eCopy of The Soul Whisperer from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

 

 

Following personal tragedies and spiralling financial problems, Londoners Alex and Sara are desperate to find ways to rediscover their zest for life. A free holiday provides the perfect opportunity for a second chance, but not long after arriving in France they discover that all is not what it seems… A series of shocking revelations challenge their understanding of humanity, as they are propelled into a dangerous world governed by a ruthless occult society.

IT’S LIVE!

Cancer.

Anthology ebook coverIt’s a vile and ugly word. Some of you may have only been touched by it through friends and loved ones, or maybe someone you know in passing. Either way, it’s a horrible disease, and one that can’t be fought alone. Whether you are the one battling it personally, or being the rock for someone else, it’s a war that is fought daily. It’s a sickness that sneaks up on you, but the devastation is always the same. The pain, the anger, and the sadness will affect everyone in varying degrees.

The amazing authors of this anthology came together for one purpose—to help a special person who was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast Cancer fight back, but to also give hope to others. Whether you are fighting this battle currently, fought it in the past, know someone who is fighting it now, or even if you don’t, this Anthology is filled with short stories that were written to give you hope. This fight can be won. But, most importantly, to show there are people out there who are willing to help.

You are not alone.

All book sale proceeds will be donated to a woman that is near and dear to our hearts. Elaine Holcomb had to sacrifice so much, yet has gained so little. Our hope is to help her out with costs of treatment so she doesn’t have to worry about anything other than fighting this disease and getting better. It may not be enough to cover everything, but in this fight, even the smallest of things can go a long way.

So here’s to the fight against Cancer, and everyone who is battling against it—directly or indirectly. Keep calm & fight on.

But most of all…F*ck Cancer!
