Fortuna by Elaine Cantrell Review



Blurb:
  Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

My Review:
  I loved the ending off this book, but I didn't like that both of them stepped outside their relationship. The storyline was really good, though I thought the characters could have been fleshed out a little better. Overall, it's a decent story for a rainy afternoon, just don't expect some curl your toes romance. This is more one of the innocent, sweet, and savory ones. I do love the way the author can make you see the characters, their moods, even their mannerisms though. Don't get me wrong, this was definitely not a bad book. I didn't have to struggle to continue reading like I have had to with some. It just wasn't quite what I expected.

Taunt Me: Rough Love Book 2



Blurb: It’s been two and a half years since the mysterious W disappeared from Chere’s life, and things are getting better. Sort of. She’s nearing the end of her design program and looking forward to a new career, even if her heart is shuttered for good. 

But loneliness is a powerful thing, and she finds herself tempted by a no-strings-attached BDSM partner who happens to be her former professor. She knows it’s a terrible idea, and that he could never live up to W’s level of passionate mayhem, but she’s been waiting so long to be bound and hurt. She’s been waiting so long to feel something… 

Unbeknownst to her, someone from her past has been waiting too. And when that someone realizes she means to move forward with this new partner, he barges back into her life to express his displeasure in the only way he knows… 

Note: This book is super rough. There’s love, but it’s rough. Hence, Rough Love series. This full-length novel is book two of a three-part storyline that culminates in Happily Ever After. But, full disclosure, it’s going to be a rough ride. 
My review:
     This is the second book in the Rough Love series. I became embroiled in the story of "W" and Chere from Book One, Page One. Chere is an escort, has managed to escape her addict boyfriend, and is now going back to school for design. W turns her inside out. He makes her question herself, push herself, but also find herself. At the same time, he is also her addiction. He makes her crave things she knows she shouldn't. It is just as unhealthy a relationship as her previous, but just like her previous, she can't walk away. He owns her soul, owns her body, and loves to punish both. Chere used to think she wanted the white picket fence. Now she wants the white picket fence with a dungeon in the basement. The question is, can W give her that or is he just as broken as she is?

Torment Me: Rough Love Book 1 by Annabel Joseph review




Wow, I think I read this in about 3 hours. Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. This book was really, really good. Although, if you trigger really easy, or are a Sexual Abuse survivor, this is probably not the story for you. There are parts that are non-consensual, humiliation, BDSM, and addiction. I love how this book shows that most relationships are very messy. They are usually not going to be a fairy tale, and most times they are not exactly what you want. Sometimes, what you don't want, may be exactly what you need. Both characters are fully explored and the story has all the meat to make it timeless for the ages.

The Prelapsarians By John Gaiserich Review



The Prelapsarians
By John Gaiserich

What is the cost of compassion in a dark and deadly world?
EPIC FANTASY, PHILOSOPHY & POST-APOCALYPTIC ACTION COLLIDE IN “AGGRESSIVELY CAPTIVATING” DYSTOPIAN DEBUT 
Pray for revenge, and God will turn a deaf ear.
– Russian proverb 
            If one commits an act of vengeance, are they ever justified? Or have they, by adopting their offender’s tactics in retaliation, become just as vile?
The full-length debut from emerging American novelist John Gaiserich, The Prelapsarians, is a gripping examination of human morality when comfort and security are stretched to their breaking points – and poses important questions that will resonate with readers long after they’ve turned the last page.
            Set twenty-five years after the eruption of the Yellowstone super volcano and the world war that followed, The Prelapsarians follows the scattered, dwindling remnants of the human race as they struggle to eke out a primordial existence under the thumb of a group of greedy Oligarchs. For those born before the disaster -- called the Prelapsarians -- the future looks hopeless. But there are some who choose to resist.
            In the south of Russia, a band of retired mercenaries -- led by the formidable, cold, morally ambiguous Andrei Evgenyevich Myshkin -- seek to undermine the Oligarchs' power. Their ardor is invigorated when they join forces with Ani Ohanyan, a headstrong, idealistic young smuggler with dreams of a brighter future and a penchant for getting herself into trouble. Together, their quest takes them across the Caucasus Mountains, through the ruins of once-prosperous cities, and to the shores of the Caspian Sea… along the way facing backroom intrigue, fierce battles, and brewing tensions that threaten to turn them against one another. But amidst their trials, the greatest struggles they face may be against their own demons.
“Early on in the story, one of my characters muses on how much easier charity and compassion were in the old world, when people knew they had a life of luxury waiting for them when they went home at night,” says Gaiserich. “In the aftermath of a worldwide catastrophe, I ask: would humans continue to show benevolence, or would they revert to a Darwinian ‘might is right’ way of life?”
            Heralded by IndieReader.com as “an aggressively captivating meditation on faith and morality as civilization collapses, rebuilds, and threatens to fall once more,” The Prelapsarians introduces Gaiserich as a new and notable voice in the dystopian fiction arena – and is not-to-be-missed by any lover of character-driven, action-packed, philosophically significant storytelling.
Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, John Gaiserich began writing fiction in 2009. His debut novel, The Prelapsarians, draws heavily on his interest in Russian history and culture, and is influenced by the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. In addition to writing, John works as an aviation professional and takes a great interest in the aerospace industry. 
Connect with John Gaiserich on FacebookTwitterFlickr and atwww.JohnGaiserich.com.
The Prelapsarians is available in both paperback and e-book formats via Amazon.



My review:
  I tried really hard to get into this book. I couldn't. It was like trying to read a Dean Koontz book where the first five chapters are spent just trying to set the scene. All I could see was a book version of some movie like The Book of Eli. If you are into covert ops, sci-fi, post apocalyptic books, honestly, you will probably love it. I am very picky about my sci-fi but I decided to give this a try. It didn't do it for me, but I am not going to say it is a "bad" book, it just didn't suit my taste. It did get better as time went on, but it had already lost me in the beginning so I didn't give it a fair chance. The writing is very well, very in-depth, and very researched. I would love to see a book by him in some of the genres I normally read. I would give him another chance. It was more that this book wasn't compatible with my taste, not anything the writer did or didn't do. One thing I did really like about this book is that it will make you take a very long look in your mirror before you go to bed and question a lot of things about yourself. So go on, give it a shot, or are you scared to see who you REALLY are?

Bad For You by Caia Fox and Alana Hart Review



They could save each other ... or go down in flames. 

A haunted man... 

Wilson Caldwell would give anything to go back and change that terrible night. But he can't, so when things get too bad, he dulls the pain with booze and women. He doesn't think he'll ever settle down ... until he starts to see his assistant, Corinna, in a whole new light. 

A loyal woman... 

Corinna doesn't know what caused her billionaire boss's self-destructive tendencies, but part of her job is putting her foot down when his antics get out of hand. She admires the intelligence and kindness beneath his pain, and can't help dreaming of what might be. But she knows better than to think a man like Wilson could ever fall for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. 

A dangerous ruse 

When Wilson's mother tries to get him back together with his jealous ex, Corinna finds herself pressed into service as her boss's fake fiancée. Their charade ignites a very real passion between them ... but can Corinna heal the hole in Wilson's heart? Or will the darkness of his past destroy them both? 

**Bad for You is a sexy billionaire romance. No cliffhanger, no cheating, HEA!**

My Review:
    I enjoyed this book from a romance standpoint. Overall, I don't know if it is just my taste preference or what have you, but I just couldn't get into this book. It wasn't really bad, I just felt the characters could have been more fleshed out. The whole thing just seemed really forced and really fake. It was entertaining, but there really wasn't any meat to it. This was more of a secretary with unrequited love for her boss, who can't see past his booze infused orgy to notice her, followed by one day he wakes up and Cupid has taken over and now he magically can't live without her. There really was nothing to show why he should choose her, why he is really attracted to her, why she is attracted to him. There is plenty to show why she has some hero worship going on since he has saved her from her beginnings and helps take care of her mom, but nothing to show why her. I felt there was a lot more this story could have uncovered and I didn't feel that I got it.

To Capture a Highlander's Heart Pt.3 by Teresa Reasor Review



Here's the blurb:
Highland warlord Gabriel Campbell plans to wed Grace MacNab, but is stunned to learn the banns have been challenged on the grounds Grace is a lady by birth. They cannot marry under the king’s law without permission.
The man Grace fears most has come to Caisteal Sith to force her into marriage. And there are others eager to offer for her in exchange for access to the charter the king’s regent has given her, but she’s in love with Gabriel. Though she doubts the depth of Gabriel’s feelings, she’s convinced he’s still the best man to lead her clan and fulfill her heart’s desire.
Can the two stand together to fight tradition and win? Or will their chance at happiness be forever out of reach?

My Review:
I absolutely loved this story. I have to admit, I was pulling for Gabriel the entire time. You could see from the beginning how much he and Grace were in love. Grace is caught up in a game that she doesn't know the rules to. She just wants to live her life as Gabriel's wife, but the powers that be want other things for her. Namely, her money and power she isn't even aware of. Luckily, she has become attached to a family whose power rivals the predator looking for her, and her benefactor is not going to let her go easily since it isn't what she wants. So who will win the hand of the new Lady Grace and her clan? Will it be Gabriel, her champion, or the predator from Caisteal Sith? I was so glad to finally be able to read this whole story together.

Brax by Jayne Blue Review

He's the club enforcer. She was the homecoming queen. Once upon a time they shared a reckless one-night stand that changed everything . . .
 

When we were eighteen, Brax was everything people warned me about. Ink and leather. Smolder and sin. I was everything people expected me to be. Cheerleading captain. Straight A student. Homecoming queen. But, one night when my life fell apart, Brax was the only thing that held me together. Stolen kisses. Forbidden passion. He made me feel alive.

I’ve lived with the memory of that night and what he ignited in me for fifteen years. Now my world’s come crashing down all over again and he’s the only one I can turn to for help.

But, the price he’s named is me.

My Review: We start this book seeing Nicole, Brax's first love, coming to see Brax at The Den, home to the Great Wolves Motorcycle Club. Seems that Nicole's brother, Doug, has gotten mixed up with some people he shouldn't have. He now needs Nicole to once again bail him out. Problem is, this time she has nothing to bail him out with. All her money is tied up in the ice cream parlor she inherited from her father. Now, she only has one bargaining chip, her body. Brax would be more than happy to take that sucker bet, too. Problem is, the problem with Doug is bigger than he thought it was, now he has to get his brothers involved if he wants any chance of saving Nicole's brother, as well as her at this point. It is definitely a page turner, will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Come take a ride on the back of Brax's bike with Nicole and watch as this wonderful story unravels. We all want that bad boy with a heart of gold.

Resisting Darkness by Kate Wendley Review




I was excited to see where this story was going, and wow, I was definitely not disappointed. I thought my interest in this series would start waning once most of my questions from the last few books were answered, but not even close. This author has the power to draw you in and keep you there. There are enough supernatural power plays, you can't just skim the pages. Now, in this book, there are even more supernaturals coming out to play. There is also a new vampire in town named Harmony. This is her and Ethan's story. We met Ethan in Book One and knew he was holding a grudge against Anthony, the Atlanta territory's Master Vampire. Now, we will see that grudge culminate and explore what that means for Ethan and Anthony while Ethan is also trying to work out getting over the grief of losing his wife many decades ago. Now that Harmony has arrived on the scene, Ethan has to wrestle with himself to figure out if Harmony is worth giving up the grief and revenge of Sonya, his wife, to be able to move on with Harmony, and possibly be happy again. Can he do it?

Abandoned Darkness by Kate Wendley Review


Wow, I have gotten so caught up in this story that keeps unraveling, but still telling you nothing, I can't wait to see what all comes out in the wash. This book, the second in this series, is the story of Sebastian, a wolf shifter, and Jade, a jaguar shifter. Sebastian has taken everything life has thrown at him and keeps on going. Jade, true to her feline nature, is a scaredy cat. They have had a crush on each other forever, but Sebastian, even though he is Alpha, feels he is not good enough for her, and Jade feels that with her skittish nature, isn't enough for him either. It doesn't help that Sebastian has another power which has caused him to be ostracized from his family, or that Torin, the previous alpha that Sebastian bested, is the reason for it. Can Sebastian come to terms with his "extra" abilities and try to make something lasting with Jade? Can Jade leave her scared nature behind long enough to give herself to the man she desires? Last but not least, will Torin honestly call a truce, or is it a ploy for something else? This is a really great book. I would definitely recommend going back and reading Book 1 because there are a lot of holes that will be filled from it.

Wolver's Reward by Jacqueline Rhodes Review


I have been holding onto the review for this book for like a week. I wanted to share with you all immediately, it was really really good. 

The blurb says:

  A reward worth waiting for...
 Fate has played River for a fool. Again. He thought he'd earned the respect of a decent and admirable wolver pack. He was grateful for it. He was content... until they took it all away, and left him alone and angry. Again.
 Yet Fate rewards him with another pack, one that needs his survival skills, and one where he meets the girl of his dreams, but River is no longer a fool. The beautiful Rebecca is an Alpha's daughter. She can never be his and she knows it, too. But knowing the outcome, changes the game, and both River and Reb decide to play this one on their own, but different terms.
  What Fate knows, and River must learn, is that happiness comes when you least expect it, and finding a love worth fighting for is what brings a Wolver's Reward.


My Review:
  When I met River, I felt so bad for him. He has just been thrown out of the only house that has been home, for expressing emotions that are too much but also, much more than he has control over. He meets Rebecca by chance on her way to sell herself to the highest bidder to help her family's financial burdens. After they steal River's truck, on his way to get it back, he finds himself drawn to help them. Rebecca gets under his skin in a way no one ever has, and has no intention of backing off. This book is very well written, and the story is fleshed out very well. It makes for a great afternoon read as you find out if River and Rebecca are just playing at being together, or can they actually do it?

Interview with Teresa Reasor

About Author Teresa Reasor:
                            My name is Teresa Reasor. My husband, Danny, and I have been married for thirty-nine years.  We have three grown children and now have a new son-in-law and a new daughter-in-law.
I'm a writer, an artist, a teacher and I also sing. 
You’ll be hearing about a new release soon.
READ ON,
Teresa Reasor 





Author Teresa Reasor has a new book coming out in the next week, so we got to chat with her for a bit. This was our interview with her, so maybe you can get to know the amazing person I have come to know and look forward to reading...

.

1. If your books became movies, who would you want to play your characters?
Breaking Free Eric Bana and Kate Beckensale.
Breaking Through and Building Ties I had a picture of Paul Walker on my desktop the whole time I wrote both these books. I’d get up in the morning and say ‘hello handsome’ then go to work. I grieved when he was killed.  And I would have loved for him to play Brett in the movies. I’m not sure anyone else could take his place. But I choose Channing Tatum and Deborah Ann Woll.
Breaking Away   Chris Evans and Jessica Chastain 
Breaking Ties  Charlie Hunnam  and Jessica Alba

Breaking Boundaries  Bradley Cooper and Emily Blunt

Breaking Out  (even though it’s not out yet.) Gemma Arterton  Colton Haynes
Timeless  Gerard Butler  and  Jennifer Lawrence.
Whisper In My Ear  Stephen Amell  and Agnes Buckner

Deep Within The Shadows  Theo James and  Kate Voegele (as the twins)

Highland Moonlight Sam Heughan (of course) and Blake Lively
Captive Hearts Anthony Star and Gal Gadot
To Capture A Highlander’s Heart: The Wedding Night Chris Hemsworth and Christen Stewart

 2. Did you ever think of making a YouTube video of any of your characters?
 I have a trailer for Timeless. It’s the closest I ever came to movie history with one of my books. It was on the USA HEA site. http://youtu.be/FsWNFXYTiQc

 3. Have you ever dressed up as one of your characters?
No. I’m not macho enough to carry the guys. And I’m not sexy or young enough to carry the women. LOL

4. If you could be one of your characters, who would it be? Why?
It would be Regan Stanhope in Timeless. She gets to love her SEXY Scotsman in the past and the future.  And she’s a kick ass heroine who can scuba dive and is, not fearless, but able to overcome her fear.
  
5. What's the weirdest question you have ever been asked?
Who was the inspiration for my love scenes?  I have to say it isn’t anyone I know. I have a really-really good imagination. 

6. Have you ever traveled to research for a book?
Yes I have. I went to Scotland for two weeks to research the Loch Maree area for my book Timeless. It was a wonderful trip. We started in Edinburgh and worked our way all over Scotland then back to Edinburgh to catch our flight out. We spent three days in Northern Ireland as well.  I learned about the place, the culture, and loved the people in both countries. I felt right at home there.

I also went to California for a week.  I visited Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Francisco, Lancaster and Palmdale, which is close to Edwards Air Force base. We did a lot of driving to check out as much of the state as we could.

Where would you want to go?  

I want to go back to San Diego and stay at the Dell.  We lived in Miramar when my father was stationed in California and I would really like to go back and visit the area again.  And I’d love to go up I-5 and see the coast again. We couldn’t take the coastal road the last time we were there because there were fires burning and they’d shut the highway.

How do you research the places you write about?
I like to drive and take thousands of pictures. I also go on line to research the area while we’re there and after the trip is over. I usually blog about the places, the history and the culture I learn about.

7. Do your characters stalk you until you write their story or do you really have to focus and then flesh out random ideas?
They are all stalkers. I have a picture of them in my head and they talk to me all the time. While I was writing To Capture A Highlander’s Heart: The Wedding Night, Gabriel was in my head.  Grace dominates the book, but it was Gabriel’s voice I heard a great deal of the time. That husky Scottish brogue was in my head for weeks. It was really hard to ignore it when I had to switch gears and start another book.

Now, Zach ‘Doc’ O’Connor is stalking me. I’m writing his story Breaking Out.  I hear his thoughts and voice in my head all the time and feel his emotions. He’s a strong personality and hard to resist.

It always seems to be the men who guide the story.

8. Do you have a ritual you go through to write?

I get up at 7:00 every day, take a shower, get dressed and write for about 5 hours before I take a break. I’m extremely slow so it varies how many words I may get written during that time. I usually post some things to Twitter some time during that period as well.  I eat a small lunch around noon and maybe watch one forty-five minute show on Netflix. I like to watch whole series, so I’ll pick one and watch one episode at a time until I’ve seen the all. Last month I finished all the old shows of the X-Files.
I’ll go back to writing around 1:00, then do promotion around 3:00.  I’ll write until 5:00 and fix a quick dinner, since my husband sort of insists on eating at least one time a day. After dinner I’ll usually edit what I’ve written for the day. About 8:00 I’ll do some more promotion usually on Facebook. I’ve usually run out of steam by then and I’ll stop for the night.
I write seven days a week. I take my computer everywhere I go.
My family says I’m obsessed. And I am.


9. What do you feel is your greatest achievement in being an author?
 I’ve written 12 full-length books and seen them in print. And several other shorter pieces. That I’m published at all and have people who want to read my words is a dream come true. Without readers, I would still write, but it does encourage me to keep going when one of them contacts me to tell me they loved my story and ask when the next one is due out.

10. When did you feel like you "made it?" 
When my first two books Highland Moonlight and Captive Hearts were published in 2007. I couldn’t have been prouder that people wanted my work and readers wanted to read it.




Lord Billionaire by Tammy L. Bailey Review




The blurb reads:
 Edmund Rushwood is a single English lord in possession of a great fortune who is in desperate need of a rich wife. In accordance with his father’s will, Edmund has until he turns twenty-six to find a wealthy bride or lose his vast inheritance.
To retain his selfish lifestyle, he agrees to join an American dating game show to find the woman who can save him. He doesn’t bargain on meeting Abby Forester, an impoverished, spirited American woman who is content to live out her father’s dreams in his vintage record shop. With covert intervention from an unlikely source, Abby lands on the dating game show as one of Edmund’s potential brides. As their worlds entangle and love begins to bloom, Abby discovers Edmund cannot marry her and retain his wealth at the same time. Will love keep them together, or will greed triumph and tear them apart?






Lord Bachelor is your typical Billionaire romance. This English Lord has to marry in a month before his birthday, or he will lose the only way of life he has ever known! I loved the dating show idea, though. It was a very good twist. I enjoyed how you could feel him wrestling with his demons, and how he second guessed everything because the stakes were so high. It was wonderful seeing how he quit being this self obsessed douchebag, to taking a good hard look at those around him. I couldn't stand him at first, he was so pompous, nothing was good enough for him, though as I got to see more of his world, I began to at least understand him a little and get why he was the way he was. He was born with a silver spoon and didn't want to lose it since it was all he had ever known. I love how strong Abby's personality is, and she is not intimidated or bowled over by his glitz and glamour. I also adore how she is not scared to take him to task for any of it, or his lack of social skills with his "lessers." So will he get to stay Lord or will he give it all up?

Mastering Darkness by Kate Wendley Review



The blurb reads:
  A Master Vampire losing his grip on his humanity holds on by his fingertips for love…
The gruesome duties of being the Master Vampire of the Atlanta territory are enough to make Anthony want to turn off his emotions and become the monster he sees in the mirror once and for all, but a flirtatious chance meeting with a beautiful human shocks his heart into remembering sensations he thought he’d long lost the ability to experience. Oblivious to the supernatural world existing in the shadows all around her, Kaia has secrets of her own, though, like why she’s the only human living at Wild Woods, home to Anthony’s bitter foe. Years after escaping a traumatic past, Kaia finally has a life she’s proud of. The only thing missing from her nice, safe world is love, but any guy she shares even a tiny bit of herself with immediately runs away. She’ll do anything to keep Anthony from being the next one to leave.



This was a new author for me. Her stories are decently paced. You don't get whiplash, but you don't feel like you are missing important pieces. This first book in this series, is about the story of Anthony, the Master Vampire in the Atlanta territory, and the human girl, Kaia. Both of them come into this with secrets, but neither realize the stakes are their hearts. Come to find out, Kaia is also friends with some people intimately in Anthony's circle, but she doesn't know their secret, either. This girl has no clue she is about to enter a world unknown to most. Her friend Ethan is playing a dangerous game, but no one knows the rules but Ethan. You will be introduced to vampires and shifters of all kind in this delightful read. You will see Anthony fighting with himself about how much to tell her, how to tell her, as well as the demons in his past from taking care of his responsibilities as the Master of all the supernaturals in his area. It is a hard burden to bear, but someone has to do it. Anthony does it well, but will Kaia be able to accept ALL that he is, or only the parts he shows her. I can't wait to read the next one and find out more about Anthony and Kaia, as well as figuring out how Ethan will continue to play a part in it.

Immortal Confessions by Tara Fox Hall




A 'Promise Me' Origins Tale

At the turn of the 19th century, former aristocrat turned lowly vampire Devlin Dalcon gets by on his supernatural charms until he meets bride-to-be Annabelle. Smitten by Anna's forthrightness, intellect, and bravery, Devlin risks his life to spirit her away to Fontainebleau, France. There Devlin begins his ascent to power in a desperate bid for wealth and social standing for himself and Anna.

Forging alliances with other supernatural leaders, he usurps the vampire Lord of Fontainebleau, amassing many enemies during his brief reign. Within a few years, he and Anna are again forced to flee for their lives to America. Living in hiding, Devlin is determined to amend his ways. But when tragedy strikes, Devlin's dark side, never fully extinguished, emerges rampant, securing him the bloody throne of America even as his malevolence and loneliness consumes him. 

The Promise Me Series

2. Broken Promise
3. Taken in the Night
4. Taken for His Own
5. Immortal Confessions

Coming Soon
~ The Promise Me Anthology
6. Her Secret
7. Point of No Return


My Review:
    This book started reallly slow for me. I was just about to give up, as up until about halfway into the book it was just a vampire who fell in love with a human, how he lived as a pauper, plying his wares to make it, so on and so forth. It was kind of like watching The Queen of the Damned when Morius takes Lestat to the beach and he plays for the gypsy girl. That whole scene was slow. Moving on, about that time, he came to know power, with his human lover by his side. This is where it gets good. You will get to meet Werebats, Werebears, Witches, even a Goblin during Devlin's story. You will also get to witness a love like no other, betrayal, heartbreak, and lust. Lots of lust. You will get to see how quick someone can have power, but also how quick it can be taken away. By the end of this book, I didn't want to put it down. It won me over. I hope you will give it a chance so it can win you over too.

Heart of an Alpha- GA Hurst


Over twenty years after tectonic disaster destroyed most of humanity, life is finally beginning to reemerge. Rissa a human survivor and her team have begun to explore and find themselves attacked by armed and dangerous strangers, two of her team are taken prisoner. 

Gage and his wolf shifters were out hunting the rogue bandits who were killing the few survivors brave enough to venture into this new world. Then he caught her scent, she was his mate, his wolf was certain; but her group was being attacked by the very rogues they were hunting. Can he save her from doing something foolish, like attacking the bandits armed with automatic weapons? 

While preparing to make an attempt to save her friends, a huge wolf stalked up behind her and stood over her growling; then held her to the ground until the attackers left. She thought she was his dinner…she wanted to save her friends, but who would save her first? 
He can save her, he can save her friends, but can he win her heart and make her his? 

A man who can become a wolf…impossible, or is it? He say’s she’s his mate, is that why her body heats up anytime he’s near? It can’t be love, she’s only known him for days…or can it? She can face the danger next to him, can she handle the rest? 

My Review:
    I really enjoyed this book. It combined my love of shifters with a post-apocalyptic feel. Not to mention Rissa is a very strong, very capable, and very level-headed woman. What she lacks in age, she makes up for in intelligence. She will make a capable leader when the time comes. Rissa handles everything thrown her way, including the new knowledge of shifters, and this very powerful shifter. He is like putty in her hands. I love how he is willing to make the transition easy on her instead of the typical alpha male, me man, well wolf, you woman, and my wolf thinks we need to do this and have little wolf babies, so you are going to. He gives her time to adjust, but like everything else with Rissa, once she put her mind to it, there is no going back. Also, to think, they are doing all this in the middle of a skirmish. It is interesting and quite entertaining to watch this story unfold and I cannot wait to see more from Georgianna Hurst.

Wiccan Wars- Heather Adkins Review


From the author of occult bestselling novel, THE TEMPLE, comes a new paranormal coming of age romance about doomed love, uncontrollable magick, and betrayal.



Ever O'Connell prides herself on being a good Wiccan, and her coven follows the path of the Goddess with love and light. But the "dark" witches in school--the BlackMags-- keep pushing her toward the edge, until Ever finally finds herself at war.



Cade Bourdain inherited his father's thirst for power, drawing him into darker areas of magick. Despite his dislike for the "Fluffy Bunny" Wiccans, he feels an unearthly connection to Ever.



When the two strike up a secret relationship the real magic between them is ignited, generating a power that a dangerous warlock yearns to take for his own. Ensnared by the warlock, Ever and Cade's conflicting covens must work together despite their differences--or else be destroyed by a common enemy.



The line between light and dark has never been so unclear.



Wiccan Wars is the first in a trilogy.
Book Two, Priestess Prophecies (Coming Summer 2016)
Book Three, Covens Colliding (Coming Winter 2016)

My Review:
    I will warn you now, if you start this book, it will kill you that Book Two is not out yet. This series is my new obsession. Also, for any of you who have any experiences with Paganism, or have even just read about it, you will love how accurate it is. Heather Adkins is definitely a witch because I was spellbound from the time I picked it up. I couldn't bear to put it down. You will be taken on a journey with Ever, who is a teenage girl on the cusp of adulthood and her first love. This first love will make her question everything, him as well, and will lead them on a journey of self-discovery that not only affects their emotions, but everything about them! Go take a trip to Coalhaven and most of all, enjoy!
