*I received a free copy of Legacy directly from the author in exchange of an honest review* Legacy starts with a bang, kind of. Krycin wakes up on the shore of an island, with no memory of who he is, what has happened to him or why he is on an island. The first person he meets is a young wizard who helps him out. The wizard is none other than Gladius. The two men become friends, even as Krycin is a little uneasy about some of the choices Gladius makes when it comes to magic and its’ usage. As the beginning of Legacy was pretty intense, first with even the reader not knowing who the main character was – […]

Impulse is a very apt name for the third book in the Mageri series! We get to know more about Silver, her birth, her childhood, and why she is sometimes not doing what her impulse is telling her to do! We also get to know a lot more about Justus and his own brand of impulse control. It was amazing to get more back-story on Justus, it explains so much about the way he treats Silver, and also the way he treats the women he’s with. There is also a lot of action in Impulse, both with fights and with the budding romantic relationship between Logan and Silver. I sure have a soft spot for Logan! I know I would […]
*I received a free copy of A Shade of Vampire from the author in exchange of an honest review* A Shade of Vampire starts with Sofia walking on the beach, alone, with her feelings hurt because she’d just seen Ben kiss someone else. She is kidnapped to a place where there are more vampires than humans, and Lucas is really not treating her very nicely. When Sofia wakes up in shackles, Lucas comes to see her, and he seems to be ready to drain her until his sister, Vivienne intervenes. While I’m not a huge fan of the kidnapping plot in general, it was quite well done in A Shade of Vampire. Sofia did not quiver and behave like a […]
[dropshadowbox align=”none” effect=”lifted-both” width=”450px” height=”” background_color=”#e0c0d7″ border_width=”3″ border_color=”#674ea7″ ]Book Blurb: He twirled a lock of my dark hair between his fingers, bringing the soft tendril to his nose as he drew in a deep breath. “Do I still smell like lemon cake?” I asked. My fingers wandered along the tight muscles on his arms, sliding underneath the sleeves of his light grey T-shirt. He suddenly crouched low and ran his nose along the length of my body—close and inviting. God, I loved it when he did that. Smelled me. What a strange thing to love about a man. The gesture felt erotic and the tiny hairs on my arms would stand up. With each inhale, his soft purr rumbled and […]
*I received a free ARC of The Best Man from Harelquin Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Best Man is exactly the kind of contemporary romance I love to immerse myself in! Cute little tourist town upstate New York. Quirky and seeminlgy ‘real’ heroine. A hot and brooding alpha-male – whom Faith is trying her best to hate, and who does his best to show her his disdain. A big family that is united in many ways, but where they all still feel shattered by their mother’s death twenty years ago. Romance, hot and steamy make-out scenes – and The Best Man has all the ingredients for success!
Excerpt: When Avant climbed back to the cave, his hair was wet. He’d slicked it back from his face and tied it into a little ponytail with a leather string. The sexy shadow of a light beard softened his angular jaw, and the thick waves of his hair shined with chestnut highlights in the morning sun. It was a good look for him, but then again, what wasn’t? Abby ran her fingers through her own tangled tresses and pulled her hair back. What she wouldn’t give for a hairclip. “Would you like a thong for your hair?” She giggled at the word thong, certain that what she pictured was not what he referenced. “Do you have an extra one? I’d […]

When they went to their transitions at the same time, and Qhuinn was disowned by his family, Blay was the one who was there for him.

The brooding friends are both jealous, but they are unable to talk about their feelings. Blay thinks Qhuinn is a lost cause, especially now that the Chosen has been with him. Qhuinn is sure that Blay will stay with Saxon forever, and that there is no more chances for him and […]
