NEW RELEASE AND REVIEW FOR Fractured (Vampire Awakenings Book 6) by Brenda K Davies


Blurb:
In this gripping Vampire Awakenings Series novella, David finally meets his match.

Freed from the chains and the vampires that once held her, Mia struggles every day to come to terms with her captivity and the aftermath of what she endured.

Knowing that she can’t stand the touch of another, David will do whatever he can to help Mia while she tries to figure out who she is now, and how to handle the deepening bond between them. 

However, just when Mia starts to think that she may be able to find happiness again with David, a danger she never knew existed rises up and threatens to take it all away from her once more.

Due to language, violence, and sexual content this book is recommended for readers 18+


Review:
I'm bouncing between 4 and 5 on the rating for this one. David is an awesome vamp guy. He's sweet and protective, and oh so patient when it comes to Mia. She has some serious issues that really started way before she was captured. She's been alone for many years until David comes along. He's the only man she has ever felt a real connection to since she was thrust into a very unkind world years before. This book is more of a relationship building story; maybe more so than the author's other books. It was a bit strange to read a book with more relationship building and sexual content than action. There is a bit of that too but not as much. Still, it's a great read and delves deep into the mind of Mia, and that was really cool. 
4 out of 5 stars!

Excerpt:

“Wait, don’t leave.”
    I hated how pathetic I sounded, like I was begging him to stay. To my surprise the stranger paused as if considering my request. To which I added a concerned, “It’s not safe out there.”
    “It doesn’t matter, I have a job to do. Stay in this house.”
    Pressure was bearing down on me, a heavy weight that made it hard to take the smallest of breaths. I couldn’t let him leave…he couldn’t walk out that door. I didn’t want to be alone.
    “Let’s call the police,” I belted out without any thought.
    I didn’t see him move or even hear him cover the distance from the back door to in front of me, his swift movement causing me to gasp. His death stare held my attention.
    “No cops,” he hissed, ice in his voice.
    His face was close to mine, hardly an inch between us, but I could still see the gun in his hand. The gun that was now pointed at my heaving chest.
    What?
    My mind started playing through death scenarios again. A new violent reality set in…this time the papers would be reporting on my murder instead of a tragic encounter with a savage animal. Something that would end up a cold case and passed off as a failed home invasion. I didn’t know if that was worse than being ripped apart by that wolf-thing or not.
    I tensed, waiting for the loud bang of the gun…it was coming. His eyes were far too serious for it to be a bluff. I had accepted my end once already tonight, and it gave me courage to do it again.
    “You saved me back there to shoot me now?” I challenged.
    The corners of his wonderful mouth twitched upward as he pressed the gun against my chest, daring more challenge. My body was trembling, but my gaze remained firm on the deep cold azure of his stare. Such raw brutality in his eyes, long hard years reflecting back at me with a cynical gleam. The muzzle of the gun pushed harder into my chest as he took a step back, putting distance between us, but still keeping the gun in place. I refused to back down.
    Fresh adrenaline drove my reckless actions as I leaned into the muzzle of his weapon, daring him to do it. The corners of his mouth inched upward even more, creating a wicked smile. A flash of hunger in his dangerous eyes, and I could feel my heart jump into a bounding speed of excitement.
    As quickly as the moment became heated and complicated, it was gone. His lips fell into a straight line, and he dropped the gun. The stranger appearing hardened and neutral as he backed away.
    “Stay inside,” he ordered in a dark tone before rushing outside.

NEW RELEASE AND REVIEW FOR Taming a Laird's Wild Lady by Tammy Andresen



Blurb:

Elizabeth Maddox, known as Isla, has never been one to follow rules. She would much rather a reckless ride on horseback than a dance in a ballroom but her father has very different ideas about her future. To further the families’ fortune, he would see her married to a Scottish lord. Isla fears this will be the end of the life she treasures above all else.

Gavin Campbell will never marry again. His past has taught him well, his first wife’s spending has him teetering on the edge of financial ruin. Marriage is a disease , or so he thought until the headstrong Isla starts seeping into is heart and
he begins to wonder if a woman like her might actually be a cure.

Can Isla’s wild ways tame this laird’s heart?


Review:
What an enchanting book! I sat down and read this in one evening. I was intent on finding out what would happen with Gavin and Isla. I know the name she goes by is seen as strange by characters in the book, but I happen to really like that name. And Isla is a unique character. She's strong and independent, stubborn to a fault on occasion, but she also has a good heart. And that makes me just love her character. Gavin had been burned before by his wife that died a while back. There is no comparison between her and Isla. But it does take a little time and some unfortunate events for Gavin to see that. In fact, it seems that in this book the tables are turned seeing as to how the man is the one often in trouble and needing help. This by no means squashes Gavin's masculinity. He is one very large Scottish man who can handle his own. Oh and I especially love how all the characters of the author's books are interwoven. Isla happened to appear briefly in another of the author's books I have read, and now she has her own story. Their stories all connect in some ways. I love that!
5 out of 5 stars!!

Release Blitz for Duched by Xavier Neal





IT'S LIVE!





Brie Sanders' entire life is on the brink of change. Her college graduation is just a few months away, she has no idea what to do with her life when the degree is in her hands, and is most likely going to be kicked out of her apartment when her best friend's boyfriend moves in.

Enter One Night Stand King, Kellan Kenningston, who also happens to be a real life prince as well as a duke.

From first blinding white smile, Kellan becomes a royal pain in the butt who keeps her laughing and Brie becomes the breath of fresh air he desperately needs.

Unfortunately, for both of them, this isn't a fairy tale with an immediate happily ever after. The media is a monster that can barely be tamed. Balls are not beautiful and bright. And more often than not, true evil is found in surprising forms.
