Only love can save her from certain death. Too bad, she doesn’t believe in love . . .

When Bette Dautry comes to him, seeking his protection, Guardian Rollin Casteel suspects the mysterious beauty has an ulterior motive. Unable to resist her seductive charms, he soon hungers to mark her as his. Only Bette disappears before he can sink his teeth into her tender flesh, leaving Rollin with one mission: to find her—and to claim her. . . .

Bette seduces Rollin intent on conceiving his child, believing the mother-child bond to be the only kind of love she can sustain—the only kind of love that can keep her alive. But she never expects to feel so much for her strong and silent lover. Then she discovers Rollin is none other than the heir to the Balinese throne—a man too noble—too dear—to play a role in her dark scheme. A man she would willingly die for, if only he would set her free. . . .

When you think of vampires you think of strong, capable beings having the ability to do amazing things. But in Jen Colly’s new novel Sheltered the fourth book in The Cities Below, published under the Lyrical Press brand and sold by Penguin Random House Publisher, you find that this is not always true and that there are just some vampires needing to be sheltered.

Though this story was easy to put down, just as quickly you wanted to pick it up to enjoy the rest of the story. I started Sheltered not realizing this story was part of a series, I had no trouble following the plot.

Sheltered follows the story of Bette Dautry a long vampire who feels the sun calling to her. If she doesn’t find something to bind her to this world, she just might take that final step into the sun. So, she decides to take a trip to the mystery city below, where she find Rollin a Guardian to the city. But unknown to Bette, Rollin is not just any Guardian, he is one of the heirs to the Balinese throne.

What I totally adored about Sheltered was the name spin of how the story will go and end. All through this story, Rollin had to shelter and protect Bette and that was totally okay with me. Which made this story very unique and pleasurable; I come to love the characters and the secondary characters.

Review: Highland Oath

 

Highland Oath (Highland Treasures Book 1) by [Szarek, C.A.]

Title: Highland Oath | Author: C.A. Szarek

Genre: Time Travel | Publisher: Paper Dragon Publishing

Publication Date: January 5th 2018 | Page Length: 206


synopsis3-300x99

The Highlander’s vow versus the surgeon’s oath…
Angus MacLeod is always getting everyone else out of trouble. When a bonnie lass appears naked on the beach, he’s compelled to rescue her. Only, Lila Salinas doesn’t need saving. Her oath as a surgeon is to heal others, even when yanked back to 1692.

Angus is immediately intrigued with the take-charge lass. His father gravely injured, so her appearance holds whispers that everything happens for a reason.
Lila is anxious to get back to modern times, but she can’t leave a sick patient. The longer she remains in the 17th century, the more distant her dreams in the 21st feel. She flirts with the idea that staying is perhaps more destiny than chance.
Angus is convinced the healer from the future is his Fate, and he’s determined to have her for keeps. He just has to persuade her they’re destined, and their love is worth fighting for.

He’s a reluctant Laird…

Alex MacLeod always knew he’d be leader of his clan, but duty was thrust upon him before he was ready.

His father’s devotion to his sick mother is something to admire—or so he keeps telling himself. He regards the man above all others and can’t understand why he would forgo duty for love.

He teeters on the edge of selfishness—the drive for something more.
She’s a runaway Fae princess…

Headstrong Alana is used to disobeying her father, king of the Fae, especially when he commands her.

When she sneaks through the Faery Stones into the Human Realm, she never expects to run into the human laird. Despite her cousin’s warnings and her father’s wrath, Alana finds herself increasingly drawn to a man she can never have.

Together they share a forbidden union…

Alex and Alana find freedom in each other that they’ve never experienced with anyone else. They’re both running from something. Can the solace they find in each other overcome the danger that awaits in both their worlds?

Highland Oath a pretty interesting concept of time travel.
Fates take a hand and land Lila in the 17th century right when Angus MacLeod’s father needed a surgeon. Soon after Angus become intrigued by the young surgeon and finds that Lila was his destiny. However, Lila is anxious to get back to modern times, but she took an oath and even though she was yanked back in time, she still taken an oath to heal and can’t leave a sick patient. Though she finds the longer she stays in the past she flirts with her not wanting to go back at all.

This book was pretty good with a well laid out plot and characters that you will come to enjoy. Even though I didn’t feel the attraction between Angus and Lila I did enjoy the story.

I will recommend this story to anyone reader he loves to leave reality at the door and like to explore the concept of destiny can exist in another time or space.

Book Tour | The Mer Chronicles

Updrift
The Mer Chronicles Book 1
by Errin M. Stevens
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits,
her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she
and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled
existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can
play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s
up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first
to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and
devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to
go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a
charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake
is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less
friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will
have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what
she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.
Breakwater
The Mer Chronicles Book 2
The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal
suicides looks to be the least of their worries.
For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one’s around
to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he
seriously won’t do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren
society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means
Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they
want to make more of their flirtation…
The solution doesn’t inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have
everything at hand to set their world to rights – namely, a hidden
queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once
they find their sea legs, they’ll restore order, distribute smart
phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying
end.
Errin Stevens writes paranormal fiction and reads practically everything
she can get her hands on. She’s currently working through the Time
100 with all her rabid reader buddies at Carpe Librum, and will think
about posting reviews if she can get to it… Her first novel,
Updrift, debuted Nov. 2015; and the sequel, Breakwater, released Nov.
2016.
