I enjoyed the science fiction side of this one but other than the setting, it wasn’t overly sci-fi. I’d definitely call it a romance novel in a scifi setting. Nothing wrong with that, at all, just don’t want anyone to expect a great sci-fi story with a romance mixed in.
That romance part is pretty awesome though! The sex scenes are steamy and well written. The two main characters are well thought out and realistically portrayed in my opinion. I’m always pleased to see strong females who can also be tender mates.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, this one gets four full hearts for making me smile. A bit short for real emotional attachment but still a great read!
He’ll never let her go
Lucy knows the rules. Don’t go out under the full moon. Never travel in the countryside without silver.
But we all make mistakes sometimes…
When a sudden storm drives Lucy off the road, she takes shelter in an abandoned castle. The castle is surrounded by tall silver walls, so she thinks she’s safe. No werewolf can get past silver.
But not all walls are meant to keep things out.
Lucy only wanted shelter, but what she finds is a cage—and an alpha werewolf who will never let her go. She knows she has to escape, but she’s not sure what frightens her most: that the wolf will break her… or that she’ll enjoy it.
Ciaran and Lucy’s steamy story continues in Claimed by the Wolf!
Now, regarding the plot, I feel it was too rushed at the start. I wish I could know a little more about Lucy and her life before she ran straight into the castle of the werewolf, Ciaran. Honestly, I was very exasperated with the heroine in several moments of the book. She was so driven by desire in most of it and watching her act with no self-respect just pissed me off big time. Nevertheless, I just couldn’t feel mad by the chauvinistic and sadistic tendencies of Ciaran. For some reason, I could see a vulnerable and hurt side of him. A side that longed for more, even if it was in quite a twisted way.
This book was very fast paced, which makes perfect sense since the book is quite short. Also, it is quite filled with a lot of very hot and dark sexual content. It will have you melt and be scared at the same time. Leaving the dark and slightly sadistic content of the novel, I have high expectations for the whole series. In fact, I am hoping for a HEA. I can’t wait to read the next short novel in the series.

No such things as a dragon is the prequel of a series with the same name. I supposed each book in the series can be read as a standalone. Nonetheless, I highly recommend them to be read to avoid confusions due to references of characters and situations that appeared and took place in previous books of the series.
As you can imagine, this books is about dragons, more specifically Dragonborn. Honestly, I was kind of explaining a kind of Dragon kidnaps damsel to make kind of book. I was very glad that the author got out of a theme that has turned into such a cliché. This book has quite a brave young heroine, Jessica, whose life has not turned as she wished to. However, she goes by. He has a boyfriend and a best friend that means the world to her. That is something, right? Too bad things aren’t what they seem and it will take a very sexy dragon kind stranger to show her what life and love are really all about.
Ozaryan is our Dragonborn. Yes, he is the very definition of alpha male and even comes with a castle! He is too strict through. He knows he shouldn’t be with a human per the laws of his kind. Nonetheless, his chemistry with our heroine is not something that can be easily ignored. Ozy comes to the human world to kill some shadow like monsters that enter human bodies and use them as host, therefore, resulting in the human’s death. Jessica might dislike her boring everyday life but getting entangled into a supernatural dispute wasn’t something she was counting on.
I highly enjoyed the perfect mixture of romance and action of the novel. Nevertheless, I believe that Ozy should be the one doing the seducing. I didn’t like that Jessica had to pound into his thick skull the fact that falling in love with a human wasn’t truly wrong. He should be the one fighting heaven and hell for the girl he loves, consequences and myths be damned. Aside from that, I believe her easygoing attitude and his strict and protective demeanor balance each other quite perfectly. The plot was interesting and has some twist. I truly enjoyed the book and will read the rest of the series!

Fantasy, action packed novella full of character growth and development. The young queen is made to deal with her new responsibilities thrust upon her by her parents death. You can see her transition from timid unsure young women to one to be reckon with. Story was written well however I feel the author could have dug deeper tip make this a bigger book. Some of the characters named seemed out a bit weird for me with the adding of eth but perhaps she was attaching it to a certain time period. Based on content 18+ and as a independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock I am giving this novella 3.5 Hearts.

Book Review – Excalibur Investigations Box Set
>This box set includes Denai Touch, Denai Bound and Denai Storm. The series follows the prophesized most powerful witch, Cate and her partner, turned husband, Jason. Jason is from an enslaved species and takes a lot of flak being the partner of the Grand Mistress of the Denai witches. The world this story is set in assumes that humans and paranormals know about and work with each other.
>Cate is reluctant to embrace her new station of Grand Mistress, wanting to continue working in her paranormal policing unit, Excalibur, instead. Her Excalibur team includes her brothers and best friend. There is a fairly deep back story that is never explained 100%. The ultimate bad guy, and Cate’s grandfather, had to have been somewhat good for Cate’s grandmother to marry him. Whatever happened to that relationship and the relationship between Cate’s own parents was never explained. A lot was made of the destruction of both relationships, yet the reasoning behind the breaks was never brought to light.
>The book had a lot of action. These paranormals tended to throw energy balls at each other a lot. Each fight scene seemed a copy of the one before, only the participants changed. The plot kept repeating, as well. Either Cate or Jason would get kidnapped or disappear, then their powers would shut down, then a battle with a lot of thrown energy balls. This series is appropriate for an adult audience. There are no graphic sex scenes, but one scene in particular has a lot of suggestion.
>The bad guys were fairly obvious, even though Cate and her crew had a hard time figuring everything out. The story really could have been told in two books, cutting out the duplicate fight scenes and the endless police-like questioning of suspects. My biggest concern was the editing of the story. Articles, like the word ‘the’, were often missing in multiple sentences. Anytime editing issues are noticed, usually that means there were a lot of them. As a reader, I am pulled out of the story whenever these issues occur.
>I am a reviewer for Paranormal Authors that Rock. I am giving this box set 3 stars.
>Amazon – will post review on 9/11
This is a 50,000 word full length Vampire Romance novel.
I couldn’t believe it! My dad married another woman, and he didn’t think to tell me about it? On top of that, I just found out that I had this sexy and mysterious guy living under the same roof as me… My new STEPBROTHER!
I couldn’t put my finger on what it was about him that made him feel so dangerous. Was it his piercing blue eyes, his defined cheekbones, or that seductive smirk he was always wearing? Or maybe it was the way he looked so deeply at into my eyes that it felt like he was looking into my soul.
Coming home after another trip abroad, I was shocked to find this stunningly, voluptuous beauty laying asleep in my old bedroom. She looked unlike any other girl I’d ever seen. Her scent so divine, and her body so ravishing as she laid there. She was my new stepsister.
That would probably be the least of my problems… Would I ever be able to tell her my secret? That I wasn’t just her stepbrother, but also a VAMPIRE!
Bonus stories are included in this book!
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a vampire romance, which contains explicit love scenes, strong language, and is intended for 18+ readers only. If you thought Fifty Shades of Grey was explicit, you should probably not want to read this. This is not your innocent, young adult series, such as The Vampire Diaries or A Shade of Vampire.
Henry couldn’t be any more attracted to his new step sister and it has been made very cleat she is off limits. The linger she’s around the more he wants her and not just for her body. In all of his years, he’s never had a craving so strong for a woman. He doesn’t know if he can keep his hands off.
This was a pretty good story, kind of light and not intense. I was looking for a little more history on Henry’s past and how thing came about. The author did cover basics, but I really like more depth as to getting to know the characters. Good story overall, I give this three stars.

Dive into a universe filled with magical creatures, from demons, “ifrits”, and werewolves to nymphs, witches, and superpowers-wielding entities. A must for fantasy and romance readers alike!
When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hellbent on finding her.
Seeking protection, she flees to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her… for now.
Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?
More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf… isn’t she?
All teenagers have complicated love lives and none believe them to be more complicated than the teenager living through it. Annabelle, AKA “Belle”, has a more complicated love life than most eighteen year-olds. To begin with, Belle is a werewolf with a really puny wolf form. She finds out that the reason her wolf form is so puny when her family members’ aren’t is because she’s adopted and now the Demon Lord is starting a war over her. Like many other paranormal romance novels involving shapeshifters, the concept of the fated mate plays a very central role to the story. Belle, who wants nothing more than to find her mate (and what eighteen year old doesn’t, really, werewolf or not), finds out that she is the mate to all of the leaders of the various forms of preternatural creature. The Werewolf King of the title, Keith, wants nothing to do with this and believes Belle to be a witch who has cast some sort of spell over him that mimics the mate pull. And, from there, things go on a roller coaster ride.
My main complaint about the book is that there was too much going on, and it muddied the story a bit. Belle gets passed from camp to camp as the paranormal leaders make their attempt at fully mating her and the action gets more and more chaotic. I’m not entirely sure what sort of constructive criticism I can offer, however, to facilitate streamlining the action into a less chaotic story. In a lot of ways the story reminded me of a piece of knitted fabric with a couple of dropped stitches and the wrong tug could send it unraveling.
Lest it seem like I’m only complaining (and why the hell would I give a 4 rating to a book with so many problems), I really did enjoy the story. The world that the author has created is interesting but does not stray too far from the conceits one expects in paranormal romance. The chemistry between Keith and Belle is potent and the sex scenes are hot! I am very interested to see where the story goes from here and whether or not the author grows into her craft.

Can Carter keep Sage safe, and out of trouble long enough to get her down the aisle.

Love MeAs soon as I started this ARC of Love Me, I knew it was not a stand alone book and I was starting in the middle of a series. Normally I would go and try to read the prior ones, but I didn’t have time this time, but that was ok. There was a nice recap and this story had an easy enough to follow the storyline. Sage has recently started her own investigative agency and it sounds like she has had many very interesting cases. This time she investigates the death of a loved boss after he visits her in a dream. She gets herself into some sticky situations that thankfully her cop boyfriend can help get her out of. This book was a quick and simple to follow read. There weren’t any surprises or cliffhanger moments. Although I found the story easy to read and had no problems with it, I only rate it 3.5 hearts because I found it a little too simple, edging on boring.
