    Time is running out . . .

    Rion Jaqard has crossed a galaxy to convince Earth to help him free his enslaved people. When he meets a fascinating woman—an enticing dragonshaper—Rion must make a terrible choice between duty and honor. One desperate decision can save his world but at the expense of all he holds dear.

    Kidnapped . . .

    When Rion abducts her, Marisa Roarke, fiery telepath and a dragon tamer critical to Earth’s recovery, is filled with anger and feelings of betrayal. But, when she discovers Rion’s secrets, the hot, explosive attraction she’s tried to deny is reinforced by empathy and a growing psychic bond that may change her forever.

    The power of passion . . .

    If Rion and Marisa don’t find a way to trust each other and channel their passion, a vicious empire will finish the subjugation of Rion’s planet. Maybe even Earth.

    A planet to save..a woman to conquer!

    After reading the synopsis I was hoping to really enjoy A Dragon to Tame the second book in Susan Kearney’s The Pendragon Legacy series. But I hate to say this book was a big disappointment.  When you pick up a book; whether it’s Science Fiction, Western or Drama. When sexual tension is the undertone of moving a plot along, you know that the main characters will act upon it sooner or later. This is what we as readers hope for…But to have the characters’ desires, be the focus of saving an entire planet…I hate to say I couldn’t buy into it, which made this story unenjoyable, to say the least.  With all the talent and skills that the two main characters had, I was hoping for a better ending.

    Some readers may enjoy A Dragon to Tame, but I have to say this story wasn’t for me.

    Also in this series: Race The Darkness, Hunt the Dawn
     

    A sinister and romantic love story of intrigue and inspiring tale of perseverance.

    Never Let Me Fall, is the 3rd book in the Fatal Dreams series by Abbie Roads. I read all the books in Fatal Dreams series, this title like the last didn’t disappoint when it came to the romance and the intrigue.

    Helena Grayse knows terror, and she knows pain. Incarcerated for the slaying of her boyfriend. She spent 10 years fiending of attacks by a group of inmates known as the Sisters. Ten years of being stabbed, beaten and other known atrocities known to man. In that entire time, she spent on dreaming of the day, she can finally escape the horror of Fairson.

    Thomas Brown has lived his entire life in black and white. Still capable of delivery justices to families that have been wronged. And in all that time, Thomas was hiding a deep dark secret if his own. A dark secret that has finally been revealed through a posthumous letter, written by his mother.

    I truly loved this story. Both Thomas and Helena both refuse to let the horrors of their life, define who they were as human beings. Never Let Me Fall, went on to prove….though life can be vicious at times, it can also be merciful.

    All thumbs up for Never Let Me Fall, with a high recommendation to all readers who loves a good mystery intrigue and the supernatural.

    Note: Even though this is book #3 in the Fatal Dream Series, Never Let Me Fall can be read as a stand-alone. But take it from me. Its better to read this series from the beginning, to experience the awesomeness that is FATAL DREAMS

    Werewolf SWAT Officer Jayden Brooks has yet to meet The One—but when he rescues teacher Selena Rosa from a hostage situation at her high school, he knows he’s in trouble. Her scent is irresistible.

    There’s a reason for that powerful scent—and it isn’t an expensive perfume. Thanks to the traumatizing events at the school, the werewolf gene flipped on and Selena’s going through the change. Even scarier, she’s on track to become an omega—an out-of-control and violent breed. It’s going to take everything Brooks has if he wants any chance to pull her back from the edge…and ultimately win her heart.

    What a great way to wrap up this spooky month of October.

    Nothing is like ending the day with a good book. I chose Paige Taylor’s book Wolf Rising, book #8 in the SWAT series. The book started like all the rest in the series, explaining how the hero or heroine first turned. What I thought was interesting about Wolf Rising is how Taylor took what is happing in our schools and incorporated into Wolf Rising story. I want to give props to Paige because she didn’t overdramatize or romanticize the topic.

    In Wolf Rising, Jayden Brooks was an officer but when responding to a call at a local school, of a man wielding a knife, he didn’t know by responding to that call, his life would never be the same.

    Selena Rosa a school teacher who wanted to save her students from the life she herself escaped from. The life of living with gangs. Selena lost her brother during a gang war, she refuses to lose one of her students to that life. She put all her time and efforts towards keeping her students in the classroom and boosting their confidence. Until a gang member enters the school trying to recruit members. Selena again put her words into action and put her life on the line, to the put that her actions had consequences that even she didn’t know about.

    Once again it was Brooks and his elite team of brothers who answered that call. But where one life change at the beginning of the story, two individual’s life will be altered by the end.

    Wolf Rising, a fantastic quick story that any fan of paranormal romance will come to enjoy. I loved the chemistry between Brooks and Selena. It was even a plus when Selena turns out to be a wolf shifter, but not your everyday variety shifter but an Omega.

    Wolf Rising, a PNR you will most certainly want to add to your bookshelf. A unique story that will keep you entertained well into the night.

    It was a time when gods walked the earth, when armies fought not for bits of land, but for the very existence of humanity. On such a battlefield, five formidable warriors stood against an evil greater than any the earth had ever seen. But evil is not an honorable foe. Betrayed by someone they trusted, the warriors were cursed, one by one, tossed into the maelstrom of time, imprisoned in stone, their freedom resting on nearly impossible conditions. Until. . . .

    Gabriel Halldor. . . one of the fiercest warriors the world has ever seen, but his tremendous skill can’t save him from a sorcerer’s curse. Trapped in stone and left lying in darkness for thousands of years, he is, at long last, brought into the sunlight of a Japanese garden, where a young girl comes to sit at his feet and read him stories as she grows to womanhood.

    Hana Himura. . . beloved granddaughter of a Japanese mob boss, raised to the life of a warrior. When death comes for her grandfather, he sends her to the one guardian courageous enough to protect her from a sorcerer who will stop at nothing to have her.

    Raphael. . . the most powerful vampire lord on earth, and the only man who can save Gabriel and Hana from an enemy who would enslave them both.

    Running from the certain death that awaits them in Japan, Hana and Gabriel flee to Malibu and the vampire lord her grandfather called friend. Raphael is magic and power combined, and Gabriel and Hana will need both if they’re going to survive long enough to defeat their enemy and light the flame of desire that’s been simmering between them for years.

    It takes two, to make this world safe!!

    Gabriel the third warrior to be set free from his prison of stone. But the only warrior, who had knowledge about the new world. Thanks, to know huge part by Hana Himura.

    Hana Himura was raised by her grandfather, knowing that one day she, and she alone had the knowledge and power to set Gabriel Halldor free from his prison. When one day, death comes to claim her grandfather in a form of a powerful sorcerer. His main goal was to use Hana, in his ultimate, plan to take over the world.  Unbeknownst to the sorcerer, Hana had her own protector. One of the warriors he himself had encased in stone.

    D.B Reynolds has done it again. In Reynolds’ latest title, Gabriel (Stone Warrior, #3), brings an enjoyable blend of romance and fast-paced storytelling to the paranormal romance genre that didn’t disappoint this reviewer. The story didn’t drag, which was a plus. And if you’re new to reading one of D.B Reynolds books, you will come to love how all her lead characters can take care of themselves…no wilting lilies here.

    I recommend Gabriel (Stone Warrior, #3) to any fan who loves and enjoy a good story.

    “A master of her craft.” —Maggie Shayne

    Sofia Ravenwood was once fascinated by vampires—their seductive power, their inhuman strength, their dark desires. Then one of them attacked her family, and she threw out her goth attire and vowed to keep clear of her enemies. Until she heard about Ethan Parrish: a sweet, sizzling-hot former college football player, turned into a vampire against his will.

    Wandering the deserted streets of Morgan Creek, Wyoming, Ethan’s sure he'll be alone forever—a monster like him deserves nothing else. Then beautiful, complicated Sofia agrees to meet him, fangs and all. The need she ignites in him is more than just the pulse of her blood or the scent of her skin. But he's not the only bloodsucker desperate to make her his own . . .

    Praise for Amanda Ashley and Twilight Dreams

    “A tender paranormal romance exploring love and family ties, and it’s tinged with intrigue and vengeance. . . . This portrait of new love is sweet and endearing.”
    —Publishers Weekly

    “Author Ashley is no stranger to paranormal romance . . . Intriguing.”
    —Kirkus Reviews

    “Master storyteller Amanda Ashley weaves a classic vampire tale of sensual, spine tingling suspense.”
    —Christine Feehan

    If you read paranormal romance…vampire romance in particular; then you know Amanda Ashley is one of the best, when it comes to sensual, intriguing plots, with strong males that will make you swoon. Well, in her latest title in the genre of paranormal romance she brings us Twilight Desires.

    Though this book was good it wasn’t great. In my opinion, this book was geared towards the young adult….18+ whose just now finding the world of paranormal.

    The only take away about this book was the character, Ethan. He whined more than your average girl. Okay, we get that he didn’t want to be a nightwalker; but you know what I say to that. “It beats being dead” Thank goodness, he found someone like Sofia, though young, she was very mature for her age.

    She had plenty of issues herself, didn’t let those issues interfere in living her life.

    Twilight Desires was a fast-paced read, and if you can get past the male character whining, then your home free to a good romance.

     

    About Amanda Ashley

    I write paranormal romances for Zebra Books, and I love it. Most of my stories are about vampires because, I admit, I’m fascinated by them. I also admit I don’t like most vampire movies. I’m not really into blood and gore in living color on the screen, although I do love the movie, Dracula, starring Frank Langella. I just close my eyes from time to time.

    Anyone who knows me also knows I love all things Star Wars, Phantom, and Beauty and the Beast.

    I also write historical romances as Madeline Baker, many of which have been reissued on Kindle with new covers.

    Vampire’s Faith is Rebecca Zanetti latest installment in the Dark Protectors series. Where we find that Ronan Kayrs was one of three destined to hold the ultimate Dark force at bay. However, there was a disruption and one by one the bubbles started to burst.

    Ronan Kayrs wasn’t expecting to walk the earth again nor meet his mate. But, Ronan does both. He sacrificed a lot and now he is expected to do it again.
    Ronan wants to know, what lengths will he have to go,  in order to protect this new world he awoke and to protect the woman that he has known only from a dream.

    It has been awhile since I read the Dark Protectors. But after reading this book. I was ready to revisit this world from the beginning. This story like the rest of the books in this series didn’t disappoint. Though there were times that the story itself dragged on. But once you passed the character introductions, the story moved right along.

    I certainly enjoyed this story, and recommend this book to any old or new fans of the Dark Protector series or to the genre of paranormal romance. The next book in the series Demon’s Mercy comes out January 22, 2019, which is the story about Logan Kyllwood. This is supposed to complete the series. I am hoping that it’s not. I want to see the woman that Garret Kayrs will fall for.


    about

    The Dark Protectors are Back!

    Vampire Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.

    Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

    About Rebecca Zanetti

    Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince. The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all.

    This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time. While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending. And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites.

    Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis. While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, a member of the Pi Phi Sorority and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president.

    After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college. Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers.

    Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides there with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day. Rebecca has completed several manuscripts, winning award throughout the writing industry for her work. She currently writes the Scorpius Syndrome series and the Realm Enforcer series (a Dark Protector spinoff) for Kensington Publishing, and the Sin Brothers series and the Lost Bastard Series for Grand Central Publishing.

    Lady Cael, high priestess and the only dragonshaper on her world, is destined to live a life untouched by love and mate.

    A Dragon of Legend book #1 of Susan Kearney’s The Pendragon Legacy published under Bell Bridge Books brand. Was a fun and exciting read. If you love the myths about King Arthur and the Holy Grail, then you would certainly get a kick out of this story.

    Lucas Roarke was on a mission to find the Holy Grail. On a trip with his twin sister, he came across a find that led him on the hunt of the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail suppose to have magical properties to cure all illness. But Lucas is not the only one on the hunt for the Grail. Lady Cael the high priestess and the only dragonshaper of her kind is too. Her nephew is dying and even though she could heal, there are just somethings she is unable to cure. But she knows if she could just find the Holy Grail then her nephew might have a chance to beat the disease that is slowly killing him.

    It took me several days to complete this book. And though it was slow in places the story was still compelling enough to keep me wanting to know more and to read the book tell the end. The attraction between the two main characters was hot and the plot well-developed. Truly one great paranormal romance.

    Hunt the Dawn written by Abbie Roads has taken the phrase “I See Dead People” to a whole new level. In the second installment in her Fatal Dream series, we’re introduced to two special people who are connected by more than sharing the same zip code, by more than the attraction they have for each other. They are connected by their ability to apprehend a Serial Killer.  With Lathan ability to receive images by smell and Evanee’s gift to bring things back from the dream world. These two make up a heck of a team.

    The phrase that came to mind after completing this book was “When they met it was Murder”. Yes, I was a big fan of Heart to Heart. When Lathan is out to stop a serial killer, he didn’t have any time to find love, especially being the way he was. But one night on his way home, he witnesses a woman being harassed, there was something special about the woman that he rushed to her assistance, and everything from there changed for him and especially for Evanee.

     Evanee had a terrible childhood. A childhood that no child of five should have endured. Now a woman, she still put up with the same harassment. Until one day a hero intervened and in Evanee’s eyes no matter how different Lathan was, he would always be her champion.

    I loved this book better than Race The Darkness. I don’t know…it was just something about these two that drew me in. Maybe it was the prejudices that these two had to face and overcome. Whatever, the case maybe this book is a must-read.

      Note: Even though this is book #2 in the Fatal Dream Series, Hunt the Dawn can be read as a stand-alone.

    About Abbie Roads

    Abbie Roads loves Snickers Parfaits and acrylic pour painting. It’s her new obsession. The pour painting. Not the parfaits. Though the parfaits would qualify as an obsession too. She spends her days a mental health counselor always looking on the brightside, but at night she likes to write dark and dangerous things—with kissing and sexy times. She loves reading inspirational quotes and stories about serial killers. She is married to her favorite fellow and they have two cranky old rescue dogs that are not spoiled. Not at all. Okay. Maybe a little. Alright, the dogs are terribly spoiled, but they do give lots of cuddles and kisses in return.

    Her first book RACE THE DARKNESS was a Publishers Weekly Top 10 Pick for Fall.

    Race the Darkness is the first book in the Fatal Dreams series penned by Abbie Roads. This would be my first but not my last book by Abbie Roads because I must as a reader and a reviewer must finish what I started. Plus, this book was phenomenal.

    If you can grab my attention from chapter one,  I am all into finishing the book. But with Race the Darkness I wasn’t expecting this phenomenal writing

    With just one accident Xander Stone life was changed. Now he has the ability to hear people thoughts, not but touch he just has to be in the vicinity of the person(s), Maybe that is why when there is a witness that the police want to crack, they call in Xander.

    With Isleen found Xander assumed that the voice shall haunt him know more. But he learns that the danger to Isleen is not yet over and that a greater force is involved.

    Race the Darkness, a dark paranormal thriller that sets this series up pretty nicely that it has this reviewer saying “Is the next book out yet”

    Broad and all-powerful, a man who knows how to thrive in the wild–and bring to the edge of ecstasy the woman he claims as his own . . .

    Determined to defend her late father’s work, Amber Green heads into the heat of the Nevada canyons to prove the existence of the Yaguara, a shape-shifting race of jaguars. There she meets the one man more hell-bent on protecting the Jaguars than she is: Jareth, a force of raw male nature to be reckoned with–an animal worth pursuing . . .

    Amber Fire by Lisa Renee Jones was short but sweet. But if you love paranormal romance this would be a must-read.

    Amber Green takes up the research of her late father. Research to prove that shape-shifters do exist. Unbeknownst to Amber while she conducts her research, the jaguar’s shifters are also keeping their eyes on her, mainly Jareth a raw alpha male who wants her gone or does he.

    Even though the story ended abruptly that still didn’t take away from how great Amber Fire was. The chemistry between Jareth and Amber was great and the storyline was very interesting.

    Laurel MacTire and her sisters are excited to be living in a wolf-run town, but they have another motive- to solve the fifty-year-old mystery of their aunt's disappearance. When CJ gets a whiff of trouble brewing, his protective instincts kick in-now Laurel has a hotel opening to prepare for, a mystery to solve, and a brawny wolf shifter underfoot. Perhaps she should have resisted the temptation to kiss him so wickedly in the snow.

    Terry spear will start of your holiday season with a bang or mystery intrigue. A Silver Wolf Christmas which goes on sale October 6, 2015, takes us back to Silver Town.

    Laurel MacTire and her two sisters purchased a hotel that was left abandoned fifty years ago; purchasing the hotel wasn’t the only reason that the sisters came to Silver Town. The disappearance of their aunt and finding out what truly happened to her was. Laurel wasn’t expecting along the way to find her mate but a mate she does find in the form of CJ Silver.

    CJ has his own problems so not long ago he and his own brothers left Silver Town on the eve of their father’s death returning eagerly to reconnect with the wolf pack that he used to call family and with the new addition to Silver Town this holiday season looks to be a joyous one.

    The character was well developed and not three dimensional. The chemistry between Laurel and CJ was actually believable. The only negative side was the story dragged in spots.

    At the wedding of two Greek gods, Kaye Underhill is the only mortal in a sea of scantily clad nymphs and fickle satyrs. And worse - she's dateless.

    Ares is in big trouble. A vengeful witch curses him, and the first person he touches will steal his strengths, while he receives their weaknesses. When Kaye trips, Ares catches her and poof! His powers disappear, and Kaye suddenly has the strength and coordination of a Greek god. To break the curse and regain his powers, Ares must get Kaye to fall in love with him.

    But for the god who makes war, making love presents a whole new set of problems...
