Carpe Demon by J.C. McKenzie *Review
As an ambassador with the Supernatural Regulatory Division, Andy McNeilly is responsible for acting as the Liaison for the Vancouver Vampire horde. The problem? She detests the Vampire Master, and the SRD can’t discover the beast she keeps locked inside.
After a menacing Demon throws an important Vampire event into chaos, Andy finds herself sniffing out crime scenes to identify and locate the mystery fiend from the nether realm. What she learns chills her bones.
Threatened by the Master Vampire to deal with the Demon, Andy’s complicated personal life doesn’t make things easier. She’s willing to risk her life and pride to keep loved ones safe. But how can she make a choice that will break one heart…and complete another?
Andrea “Andy” McNeilly is an Ambassador to the largest and strongest vampire clan in Vancouver. She belongs to the Supernatural Regulatory Division and is also a shifter with more than one animal and if the voices of her animals don’t drive her crazy all the other problems she’s having just might. She’s blood bound to a master vampire she can’t stand, has a sex demon named Sid wanting her and she’s in love with two different Alpha shifters a werewolf and a wereleopard. Toss in a demon bent on destroying all the vampires and humans around and she’s got her hands full, especially when she’s ordered by the vampire to destroy the demon. This is a fast paced action packed novel that kept me on the edge of my seat from page one. I can’t wait to see what Andy gets herself in to next. 5 fangs.
Wrong Side of the Grave by Bryna Butler *Giveaway
WRONG SIDE OF THE GRAVE
by Bryna Butler
When the dearly departed of Point Pleasant start walking and talking, the Men in Black mark Mothman as suspect number one. A fun read, Wrong Side of the Grave is a fast-action Teen Sci-Fi Mystery with a paranormal twist.
Parent Approved: Contains no profanity or sexual content.
EXCERPTS (Please choose only ONE to use with your post):
Warner—that’s Agent Carey Warner—picks it up and pats the stool. At least it’s him and not his partner.
“Sit,” he says in a voice so low I’m sure I’m the only one who can hear it.
I saddle up to the bar beside Warner. He tips a flask into his mug before taking a long gulp.
“Wanna swig?” he offers.
My eyes survey his polished dress shoes and pressed, white shirt with sleeves messily rolled up to his elbows. He pulls at his tie, which has already been loosened from the unbuttoned collar. His rich-boy haircut is somewhat ruffled reminding me more of a frat boy than of one of the Men in Black.
“I’m too young,” I smirk.
He lets out a genuine chuckle at that.
“You wouldn’t believe,” Warner answers with a lift of his brow. “Well, maybe you would. How ’bout you? Anything out of the ordinary?”
“Same old,” I reply, trying to keep my facial expression in check. Surely they’re trained to read that kind of thing. “Where’s the spider?”
Warner’s eyes flash on me, and the dimple in his cheek sinks. Bridget swoons over that look and calls it mischievous or whatever. Sometimes she forgets what he does for a living. She forgets what his duty will require if I step across the Men in Black’s invisible, moving line between right and wrong.
A very good Y.A. suited for all ages. Eric is a cutie, he’s the drummer in a band and is way older than the teen ager he’s pretending to be. His best friend is Bridget, she’s a book blogger, points in my book, and knows everything about Eric. Toss in aliens of all shapes and sizes, men in black, Mothman and the dead coming back to life and you end up with a really fun, light hearted, campy story. No sex or bad language just good clean fun for all ages.I will definitely recommend this to my young neice. 5 fangs

Get Even by Amanda Heath *Giveaway
Title: Get Even
Author: Amanda Heath
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2015
He broke my heart.
He used me.
She made my world go round.
He tore me apart, put me back together and tore me up again.
She was the only person who truly loved me.
My mental state is…questionable. My life is in ruins. My heart is ripped to shreds and it’ll probably never be put back together again.
My twin sister, Sarah, passed away a few days ago. She was the sun in my sky, the grass between my toes and the light to my dark. I miss her so much. I don’t know if I can go on without her.
My ex-boyfriend, Tate, has come back into town for the funeral. I feel rage. I feel despair. I have violent urges. I have this need for revenge where he’s concerned.
My brother-in-law, Max, is acting…strange. I think he’s hiding something, something I don’t want to find out. He might be the glue though, the glue I need to hold me together.
My name is Farah and I want to get even for every single lie I’ve been told. I want to get even for all the things people have hid from me. Mostly, I want to get even for this black hole my heart has been turned into.
“What the hell are you doing?!” Max yells out from the top of the stairs.
I bite my lip and look down at Tate. The play sword is still in my hand over my head waiting for another chance to hit him. I’m straddling his hips and I kind of forgot how we even got this way, “Ummm…” I stutter out.
Tate clears his throat and looks up at his brother, “Just a bit of foreplay.”
My face screws up in anger and the sword comes down on Tate. “You wouldn’t know foreplay if it bit you on the ass!” I say, repeatedly beating Tate with the plastic sword. I know it stings because Blake’s hit me enough times with it.
Tate finally throws his arms over his head trying to protect himself, “You lie! You’re the one who is always telling me to ‘put it in’ or ‘fuck me now, Tatum’ it’s your fault!”
“She calls you Tatum in the bedroom?” Max asks.
I glare down at Tate with all the pissed off anger I can muster. “You answer that question and I’ll show you foreplay with this sword and your ass.”
I live in southern Arkansas with my husband and young daughter. There is also an insane Boston Terrier running around. I’ve always been a lone wolf and find my friends in books. I started writing at a young age and I haven’t stopped since. Most days you can find me either glued to my laptop or my kindle. My first novel, This Beautiful Thing was an Amazon best seller for 11 weeks and a year later I’m still tickled to see people enjoy it. I may not be a huge seller but I have the best fans ever and I thank God everyday for every single one of them.

Evo by L.J. Sealey
Evan O’Reilly was used to fighting demons. A bounty hunter for the underworld, he was always precise. Efficient. Ruthless. But that was before he had to battle with his own.
Being a powerful deity had its advantages, and Alethia, goddess of wind and shadows, was thankful she could watch over her friend completely undetected. That was, until his carelessness began to garner the wrong kind of attention, leaving her no choice but to step in.
Now, Evo is being hunted by his own kind, closely followed by a revenge hungry demon. He is on the run, and Alethia is running with him. While passion ignites, and tension threatens to tear them apart, they discover that there is something far more sinister after Evo’s soul. As Alethia fights for him, she is forced to face an agonizing truth: to save him, she may have to lose him forever.
A story about love and sacrifice, Evo is the first book in the Divine Hunter World series of books that focus on the much loved characters from the Divine Hunter series.
*Please note: This book is a tie-in novel to the Divine Hunter series and is book 2.5. Therefore, it should be read between Dark Deliverance and book 3 as part of the series. Can also be read as a standalone.
Both books are available on eBook and paperback.
L.J. Sealey was born and raised in a little Welsh town by the sea. It rains a lot, so she often has a great excuse to sit at her writing desk and while away the hours at her laptop.
She still lives in N.Wales and when she’s not travelling around the country working with her husband – who is a professional singer – or singing backup vocals herself, she likes to read and watch her favourite TV shows which normally includes plenty of CSI, The Vampire Diaries and endless amounts of sitcoms. Being addicted to reading about vampires, demons, shifters and angels, she has always had a thing for all things paranormal and is a big sucker for impossible love stories. So it was inevitable that when she started writing herself she would mix the two together.

Immortal Champion by Kristin Secorsky *Review
Married off to an older man, Aeliana has never had the love and passion she desires. After Titus dies, Aeliana finds herself deep in debt to a man named Augustus, who wants her more than his money. Aeliana is under pressure to marry Augustus or risk losing everything to him when a mysterious free gladiator, Gernot, suddenly turns up offering to help with a deal too good for her to refuse. Gernot is full of secrets, and Aeliana can’t seem to stop herself from falling for him.
Gernot is seeking the whereabouts of Tiberius and his pack after the eruption of Vesuvius. Deceived into sailing with Amara to Egypt, he makes his way back to Rome in search of his pack. He finds himself in Capua, fighting as a gladiator in the arena to help a beautiful woman. Gernot is torn between continuing the search for his pack and the woman he loves. Gernot, the unbeatable champion of the arena, is the only thing standing between Augustus and what he desires most. Augustus’s scheming becomes increasingly dangerous, but he is not the only danger Gernot faces.
Warning: This book contains graphic language, explicit sex, and other subjects not appropriate for YA readers.
I want my own Gernot and I want him now!!! I am in awe of Kristin’s ability to weave such an intoxicating tale. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put it down.Now normally I’m not into historical romance but this is so much more than that.Not only is there such a love story between Germot and Aeliana that it makes me smile, there’s also plenty of action with blood thirsty vampires and gladiators. I can’t wait to see what’s next for these amazing characters and any more Kristin can think up. 5 awesome fangs.
Forget Me Not by Jaden Sinclair *Review
One Night in Amsterdam by Jaz Hartfield *Giveaway
One Night in Amsterdam
by Jaz Hartfield
Chloe organizes Jo’s hen weekend in Amsterdam, glad to get away from the usual boring or married men that she sleeps with. Perhaps she’ll meet some cool guys up for a bit of fun. If not, at least she’ll make sure her best friend gets very drunk while they all party in style.
Dean is getting married to Tamsin, but having serious doubts. His mates take him to Amsterdam for one last weekend of debauchery before settling down for the rest of his life. But is Tamsin the right woman for him?
When Chloe and Dean meet in Amsterdam’s red-light district, they are immediately attracted to each other. Dean tries to justify one last fling before marrying Tamsin. Chloe feels bad about having sex with someone else’s intended. Yet, a night of amazing sex is exactly what both of them want. So, why shouldn’t they just enjoy one night of fantastic, guilt-free sex?
“You sound like fifteen year old schoolgirls,” Glynis said with a sniff. “Perhaps we should ask Joanna what she’d like to do. After all, it’s her weekend.”
“Oh God, who brought Miss Boring along?” Di groaned.
“Oi! That’s my sister. You watch your big gob—”
“Girls! Stop it.” Chloe stood between them all as the self-appointed mediator. “Let’s not get bitchy before the weekend has even begun. Maybe Glynis is right.” She turned to Di with a warning look.
“Whatever,’ said Di with a tone of resignation.
“You tell ‘em, sis,” Glynis said, as all eyes turned to the bride-to-be.
Jo studied each of them in turn, cranking up the anticipation. She tapped her lips in deep thought, and opened them as if to speak and then stopped. The others leaned in slightly to catch her words.
“I think we should…” Jo moved over to the double bed and sat down next to Ushma.
“That is…it seems that, well, Glynis has a point about being responsible and staying in control…”
Glynis smirked and leaned smugly back against the wardrobe.
“But on the other hand,” Jo continued, “we’re in Amsterdam – city of debauchery – on my hen weekend. So I say we go out on the lash, get completely hammered, watch beautiful men ripping off their underwear and go and flirt with some horny guys.”
“Woohoo!” Chloe and Di screamed, rushing over towards Jo. Ushma joined them in a group hug.
Chloe used her mobile to track down the right tram to get them to Dam Square, on the outskirts of the infamous Red Light District, known locally as Rossebuurt. It was a clear, bright day with lots of people sitting outside eating, drinking or strolling along in groups and couples. The extensive canal network punctuated the roads with bridges, barges and houseboats. Market stalls added colour and life to various cobbled squares. Chloe had also read that many of the buildings were from as long ago as the fourteenth century, but she didn’t think this would interest the others. The Red Light District didn’t really come to life until it got dark, although it was easy to find signs and evidence of seedy nightlife and practices.
Chloe found a cash machine and prayed that it wouldn’t swallow up her card. Thankfully, it allowed her to take out fifty Euros, to add to what she’d already brought. She didn’t dare try for any more.
They wandered through a few lanes until Chloe suddenly shrieked outside a shop with a window display of various sex toys.
“I guess we’re in the Rossebuurt then,” she said.
“We’ve found our first tarts,” Jo quipped, drooling over the gateaux and pastries. They all stared greedily at the chocolate fondue fountain, with molten chocolate waterfalling down a glass sheet.
“What a choice, eh?” Chloe said, standing where the shops joined and looking from one to the next, as if watching a tennis match. “Sex or chocolate?”
Unfortunately for him, the taller one, still only known to him as ‘Bitch-Ho’ from the back of her sweatshirt, answered before his girl could speak. He politely answered the other, but kept his eye mainly on his chosen one. Her smile created the most wondrous dimples he’d ever beheld. Close up, she was even lovelier than before. Dean so desperately wanted to touch her.
He discovered their names. The blonde’s was Chloe.
“So where you from, then?” Dean asked, to make conversation.
“Lewes. You won’t know it. Little place in Sussex—”
“Yeah, I know Lewes. We’re from Brighton.” Dean couldn’t help grinning.
“You’re joking! What are the chances? We often go out clubbing in Brighton.”
“Have to meet up some time and reminisce.”
Chloe bit her lip and shrugged.
“Shall we go somewhere else? All of us?” He emphasised this last bit because he didn’t want to get stranded with Di, who was paying him more attention than he wanted. He smiled at Chloe. Sod it. What did he have to lose?
I give it 4 fangs.
One Night in Amsterdam by Jaz Hartfield is part of the City Nights Series, but can be read as a stand alone book. I suggest this book for mature adults only.
This is a short book that I read in one setting.
The main characters are Chloe and Dean. Chloe seems to like sex with everyman and is not looking at settling down. Dean is engaged to be married in a month. Chloe and her friends are in Amsterdam for a Hen Party (Bachelorette Party) for her friend Jo. Dean is there with his friends for a stag party.
Not wanting to give anything away, the book has some heat and is a good fast read.
If you like sex and a little romance, then I suggest this book. If you are not into reading about sex, then don’t read this book. I will be reading the other books in this series.

Tales of the Curious Cookbook
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: April 22, 2015
Genre: M/M Contemporary
After his sister’s death, businessman Marshall Hunter gains custody of his niece. Unused to children, Marshall struggles to connect with her. In an effort to make her more comfortable in her new home, he hires professional muralist Pace Barlow to personalize her room.
Pace is intrigued by his tiny client, and even more interested in her handsome uncle, but Pace isn’t certain he’s ready for the commitment of an instant family.
When Marshall decides to move for the sake of his niece, will he be able to keep his relationship with his young artist, or will he have to give up love to become a good father for a lonely little girl?
The love baked into an old-fashioned recipe might bring the two men together–but some things take more than magical cookies to fix.
Tales of the Curious Cookbook
It’s called comfort food for a reason.
Not much is known about the cookbook, except that years ago, the mysterious Granny B collected a set of magical recipes and wrote them down. Over the years, each book has been modified, corrected, added to, and passed down through the generations to accumulate its own unique history. The secrets behind these very special recipes are about to find their way into new hands and new lives, just when they’re needed the most.
Food created out of love casts a spell all its own, but Granny B’s recipes add a little something extra. This curious cookbook holds not only delicious food, but also the secrets of love, trust, and healing, and it’s about to work its magic once again.
Each Book in Tales of The Curious Cookbook Can Be Read
As a Standalone
About the Author:
Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.
When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life he told her to go have fun.
During those seconds she isn’t writing she remembers she has children who humor her with games of ‘what if’ and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name—two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.
Despite her husband’s insistence she doesn’t drink enough to be a true literary genius she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.
She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres.
