Summary of the Book:

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 . . .

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am a huge fan of this author and have been reading her books for a long time. I was very people to get a copy of this book. I love my vampires too. It is up paranormal being of choice. I have to say that I love Ethan and Sofia’s story and they both have their share of problems and issues. Ethan did not want to become a vampire but it was did against his will and to say that he needs time to adjust to all of this is messed up journey. Sofia was obsessed with vampires until a vampire attack on her family changed all of that and she wanted nothing to do with them. But when she meets Ethan there is something that is almost magical and it makes her wonder if her choice if all of them are as bad as she assumed. Now if you want to know the details of what happens next you are going to have to grab a copy for yourself.

Summary of the Book:

How many half-truths could loyalty shoulder before it broke from the weight of deception on its back?

A sweeping LGBTQ and polyamorous retelling of “Swan Lake”!

Strange things can be said of the forest that spans the border of two kingdoms long at war. An evil sorcerer has made it his dominion, or an elegant enchantress has claimed it as her domain and grants wishes to those who chance upon her, or maybe the forest is guarded by an ancient and wrathful spirit.

Katya calls the forest home, living a life of magic and charms with her partner Ivan. But a threat looms over their forest, some darkness and danger that Ivan swears to protect her from. Katya finds herself caught up in a web of grudges and deception spanning generations, but most dangerous of all is the beautiful princess who stumbled into their woods. A princess who sets Katya’s heart fluttering with both desire and fear.

As forces rally to rescue the princess or go to war, Katya must take measure of her own powers and decide what she is willing to sacrifice. Will she retreat to the safety of what’s familiar or give up everything she knows to spread her wings and fly?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I actually got a physical copy of this book from the author. Thank you for that Dax. This was an amazing retelling of Swan Lake. I grew up with the classic fairytale. I love how this did not make any of the character sexual preference awkward or abnormal. It was the norm for them. The describe and world building had me drawn in and going on the adventure. There are a lot of different kind of relationships going on in this book. I have to say just how much the cover art and some inside the book just added to the experience that I had. It is definitely a book that I will read again.

Summary of the Book:

An ancient power long kept dormant stirs in the shadows once more as one boy embarks on a quest to earn his freedom and the freedom of his land!

Magic has turned to myth, the Vaelhyreans of old are naught but legend, and the power of the ancients has long been forgotten. However, with Ealdred, a mere half-breed slave boy, myth becomes real, the forgotten remembered, and the power of legend is reborn.

Sold into slavery at birth, Ealdred has grown accustomed to his bleak existence, only dreaming of a life he can call his own. One day Ealdred is suddenly thrown into a world of mystery, brimming with deceit, where the remaining Vaelhyreans are in a desperate fight for their very survival. When Ealdred is kidnapped by the power-mongering dark lord Zeldek, he must make a choice: commit his newfound magic to Zeldek’s service or die. But when he meets Bellator, Zeldek’s clever yet treacherous servant, an alternative is presented to him: escape from Zeldek’s stronghold and embark on a quest to find a cursed arrow and free the Vaelhyreans from the spell that keeps their powers at bay.

Yet how can he survive in a world where magic is illegal, half-breeds are hated, and the four countries are on the brink of destroying one another?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The pacing of this tale kept me turning the pages from page one until I closed the back cover a couple of hours later. I loved the world building and how the characters pulled you along on their journey. I sometimes have an issue with some fantasy. But I found all the answers I needed and the tale was put together very well. The POVs of the characters are sharp and clear. This makes it very easy to follow the story and who’s voice is telling this part of the story. I enjoyed it and can’t wait to see what come in the next one.

Summary of the Book:

Fetish Girl is a kinky roller coaster ride through addiction, violence, motherhood, sex, and the creation of Evil Kitty, Bella LaVey’s larger-than-life dominatrix persona. It is a singular memoir that shows that a heavily tatted BDSM sex worker can be courageous enough to come to terms with her painful truths and raise a healthy, loving child, even as she remains boldly sexual and authentic. It’s the story of a woman attracted to extremes who is willing to go to great lengths to uncover and make peace with her true nature.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book gave me a sense of empowerment and healing. It tells the story of one woman and her struggles and journey to finding what makes her who she is and how she defined her life. I think that it takes bravery and understanding of one’s self to be able to write something that is so close to one’s soul. I was not really sure where this book would take me when I started to read it, but it took me on the path one woman took to find herself and do what she could for her child as a single mother. I am glad that I was allowed to read this book. It touched me and made me see the world through a different set of eyes. Thank to the author and publisher for allowing me to experience this tale.

Move is Over!!!!

I have just moved and that is why I have not been posting much of anything the last few days. I have not really settled in yet, but that has not me from reading and doing the things I love. I am still looking for a new job, but I have only been in my new apartment for a couple of days. I still have not get everything in the right places yet. But I am happy to have my own space with my husband. It has been a rough couple of weeks. I am doing my best to settle in but I am still missing home a bit. I have always been close to my family. I am over 80 miles away from them and I know that is not really all that far. I am doing my best to grown and become more of the person that I wanted too. Maybe I will try for some of those dreams like making the chocolates or getting a book of my own published whether it is my poetry, short stories or a novel or series. I am happy to finally take some steps of my own. I have been married just over a year now. I am writing this in a bit of a mess. I have had a death in the family and I am not handling it well. I did not get to bring my fur baby Lapis. Thanks for listening to me.

Summary of the Book:

Banned from Heaven.
Escaped from Hell.
They are UnHallowed.
Gideon has one shot at redemption. Close the portal to Hell forever and return to Heaven, leaving behind millennia of darkness. Nothing means more than restoring his grace, until the one person he vowed never to see again places herself in his direct path. He has to resist her, but she is his Heaven—and his Hell.

Risking her life to shut Hell’s gateway, the last person Dina ever expected to encounter was the one she had lost forever. Duty, not desire, is what he instilled in her and what she will follow, regardless of how he makes her ache…Until the unthinkable happens and she must choose between honor and the only love she will ever have.
Torn between what they want and cannot have, Gideon and Dina must decide whether to make the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of humanity or let passion take them to where angels fear to tread.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. They were really put in a tough spot to choice between love and closing a gateway to Hell. It is a bit of a shock to the system. I have never read anything by this author before but I want too. I know there are more books to come. I have not read many with Angels as the leads. A few with half-breed angels but now the full on winged version. It was a great first books. I am going to go start on the next one. Thank to the author for allowing me to read this.
