Timeless Night by Torie James (New Camelot)

Timeless Night by Torie James (New Camelot)
       In an epic battle of good versus evil, one woman finds herself the focal point of a magical feud. Sabrina thought she knew who she was until a knight of long ago returns to steal her heart. 

      If you could live forever, what would you choose to live for? I chose love...

     A silent guardian, Alexander has walked the corridors of time in pursuit of an end to a haunting prophecy. Sabrina has lived a life surrounded by modern magic, unaware that the greatest and deadliest of powers reside within her own soul. If it only takes the light of love to ignite the stars, what of the decadent seduction of darkness? All roads don’t lead home and some myths only grow into legend.

Star Rating:  Five Stars
Review: Alone for nearly a millenia Alex has roamed the world, eventually coming to rest in LA, the city of Angels. He's protected mankind from Mordred and his revenants in hopes of one day getting his revenge on Mordred for killing his wife Vivianne.
      Enter Sabrina or Bri, a fiery, petite, smart mouthed modern woman. She says what she means,....and there truly is no filter with her. She's on the lookout to find the assholes who killed her brotherMicah. Only to run across Alex and Mordred, two men that have literally stepped out of her dreams. One she has dreamed oflust filled images, while the other... He killed her.
       Alex refuses to, or rather TRIES to not form an attachment to Bri this time, believeing that it will only kill her like it did before. Bri is determined to prove him wrong and that love does conquor all. Oh and protect the world from her evil aunt Morgan Le Faye.
         Oh! Did I forget that this is a NEW TWIST on Arthurian Legend....
        OOPS!! Silly me! ^_^
        Yes we have Mordred, Morgan Le Faye, Merlyn, Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, and the rest of the cast! But unlike other remakes where it is just rehashed and maybe tweaked here and there. This is completely redone and given fresh life, AND Vampires! OOPS again! I forgot they like to be called Guardians of Light.
        Either way hold onto your boot straps peeps you're in for a helluva ride!
        The character developement, the world building, plot and sexual tension is simply outstanding!! I am a HUGE fan and sucker for Arthurian legend and this book totally had me before I was even a quarter of the way through it! 
        I cannot wait to read the next installment from the awesome author!
   ~HUGE THANK YOU to my Sunita, for making me read this book. Lol! I shall never doubt you again when you recommend an author.

Her Wish Before Christmas by Kimberly Quinton

Her Wish Before Christmas by Kimberly Quinton

Her heart never forgot him… 

Genny Ridgeway left Laurel Cove with a broken heart. Returning awakens old feelings, old longings, and the desire for long kisses beneath the mistletoe with the man who broke her heart. 

The only thing missing is her… 

Connor O’Rourke and his son finally have the home they’ve always wanted. Now, he’ll do anything for a second chance at love with the woman he let get away. 

It’s Christmas time in Laurel Cove…. 

Surrounded by the spirit of the season and with a little posthumous help from her gypsy grandmother, can Connor prove he is the man Genny has always wanted to grant her wish before Christmas?

Star Rating:  Five Stars
Review What happens when the death of a loved one brings two people back together?
     One hell of a Christmas wish!!
    Nona, once matriarch of the Ridgeway family passes away leaving her family devestated by her loss. The four cousins come together to support one another during this time grieving and remembering. Then an out of the blue accident throws together Genny and Connor who had dated and broken up twelve years ago. Old hurts come to the surface and they find themselves drawn to one another again even after all these years.
      But Connor also has a little secret, one that he's not sure if Genny will be willing to accept once she finds out.
     OMG! I loved this story from the beginning and even though it made me think of my own Grandma that passed in 2012 it was still a very awesome story. I loved reading about two people who've been apart for years, have lead seperate lives and done things making them into the people they are, come back together after all those years and finding love. *sighs dreamily*
      Although I did want to smack Genny and Connor both for being so stubborn and bull headed a couple times, thank God they worked it out with a little help. ;)
      Can't wait to read more  in this cute series, and this author in the future!

Cupid's Promise by Kimberly Quinton

Cupid's Promise by Kimberly Quinton
 Shot through the heart... 

Cupid's Secret promises to set Laurel Cove on its ear with a sexy new boutique that answers what a woman desires. When the owner ends up in the hospital it's up to Lena Ridgeway to make sure this heart-stopping opening goes off without a hitch, but she finds her every idea challenged by a no-nonsense businessman. 

Capitalizing on a feeling... 

Marcus Blackwell is a bottom-line kind of guy and he knows that sex and hearts sell. When he arrives to find his latest venture in chaos, his partner injured, and a model-turned-manager in charge, he rolls up his sleeves and dives in. If only he could keep his mind-and hands - off the sultry model with her whimsical faith in a fake holiday. 

Can't fight this fortune... 

Lena can't help teasing the straight-laced, business-only boss who keeps sneaking into her dreams. One passionate kiss has her believing he may be the one she's waited for all her life, but she'll need every arrow in Cupid's arsenal to prove she is his true Valentine....

Star Rating: Five Stars
Review:   Assumptions as they say can make an ass out of you and me and this is certainly the case when it comes to Marcus's assumptions about Lena Ridegway. 
        Lena has agreed to help her friend out while she recuperates from an unplanned fall just days before her grand opening of her new store. Marcus is the silent partner in the business and comes in to help get the new store on its feet.
       The sparks  fly between them immediately as MArcis tries to tell himself that Lena is just another manipulative model. Lena tries to figure out the seemingly indominatable Marcus as they work together to get Cupid's Secret up and running, but everytime she thinks she has him pegged he does something to flabbergast her anew! 
        Things progress to the point that they enter into a bet to see who knows more about romance.
        Hmmm...I wonder who will win? 
      To find out more and how this story ends, my dear readers you will just have to go grab a copy and read it for yourselves. 
     Evil. I know. ;)
    This story is poignant and sweet, it definitely allows a person to think about their own romantic life, or whether they even have one. The little  bits about the romance shop gives one ideas to try and add something new to the old hum drum as well. I definitely recommend this book to my fellow readers who love short and chocolate sweet romances. 
   I know I for one can't wait to see how the last two Ridgeway girls find their fortunes.

Secrets of Night (An Order of Nights Novel Book One) by Virginia Cavanaugh

Secrets of Night (An Order of Nights Book One) by Virginia Cavanaugh

     When the tenuous peace between the sorceresses, vampires and shape-shifters is shattered, Kierra, sorceress senator for the Order of Night takes it into her own hands to discover the reasons why.

      As the vampire member of the triad for the Order of Night, Kale is no stranger to war, but isn’t eager to battle anew without cause. His investigation into the allegations that the shape-shifters are the breakers of the peace treaty are thrown askew when the woman who has haunted his lusty dreams is found doing recon of her own.

      As the body count rises and more women disappear, Kierra and Kale race against the clock to uncover the secrets the shape-shifters are keeping. Imminent war and forbidden attraction threaten to implode their progress, while Kierra’s secrets may very well tip the scales of power.

Star Rating: Five Stars

Review:  Wow!! What an absolutely awesome story! i loved the back ground given during the whole story, and the forbidden love, but most of all that there is obviously going to be more!
     As an avid reader I've read a lot of stories, and after awhile some start to be same ol' same ol'.
    Nothing new!
    Virginia has put her own twist on the vampire, shifter and witch....excuse me I meant sorceress, myths. Where as most stories origins are seperate from one another these three are linked by a very turbulent past! One in which Kiarra's ancestor Morganna was once the lover of King Thorian, she was captured and raped repeatedly by King Curtis. Fortunately she escapes Curtis and returns to Thorian, only to be turned away. In her grief and anger she curses both kingdoms, the Thorians become Vampires, and the Curtis's shifters.
     But the awesomeness doesn't stop there! 
     Kale is a vampire and nephew of the dead King Thorian, he has become entranced by Kiarra even knowing that it is forbidden.
     But hey rules were meant to be broken right! 
    What follows is a great mix of sexy, subterfuge and action, and I haven't even given away the best parts of the story! 
     **Insert evil laughter**

Ooooo! Tingles, I loved it, and I can't wait to read the next book in this series by Ms. Cavanaugh.

Divided Loyalties Character Interview with Hayden Raines and exclusive excerpt

Divided Loyalties by Lia Davis
        Trained to hunt rogues and protect the human race from the threat of shifters, Christa Baker is beginning to rethink her career choice. Especially when her niece and nephew—who she’s raised on her own—end up in the crossfire. Now she’s looking for a way out and disappear off Shield’s radar for good. She never thought her out would be a gorgeous wolf who kidnaps her after raiding Shield HQ.
      Hayden Raines has always followed the rules. As the Ashwood Fall wolf Marshal, he has to set the example for those working under him. When he sets his sights on the beautiful human hunter things go downhill, fast. Fate has a funny way of turning things inside out—because the woman he kidnaps, the enemy he might need to protect his family from, just happens to be his mate.

Warning: Contains one woman on a path she’s not ready for, a man who thought things would be different, and a heated exchange that turns out to be the best thing ever.

Ashwood Falls reading order:

Excerpt #7: 

               “Okay, Christa. Calm down and breathe.”
      She took a deep breath and peered at the single lit candle on the coffee table. Its flame danced, casting shadows everywhere. Shadows that threatened to stir up the demons living inside her head, again.
      She dipped her brows and wondered if the candle had been there before the wolf lit it.       How did he light it? Did he have powers beyond his ability to shift into his animal? She knew that some shifters had an extra gift.
      Did Hayden have any?
      Why the hell did she care?
      She growled and turned from the flame to take in her dark surroundings. Taking a deep breath, she banished all the questions that whirled around in her mind like hungry vultures.  She was out of here the first chance she got.
      Just as soon as she found out where ‘here’ was.
      The front door opened, and she whirled. The driver, Tanner she believed Hayden had said, entered the house. From the glow of the candle, she could make out the similarities in his features to Hayden’s. They had the same high cheekbones and same almond shaped eyes, yet Tanner appeared younger in a bad-boy way.
      She stepped back and watched as he went to the fireplace, and grabbed a broken wooden chair on his way. With quick movements, he broke the chair into several smaller pieces and placed them inside the fireplace. After striking a match, he threw it in the fireplace and stood to face her.
      The fire flared to life, illuminating the whole living room in a soft glow. Still, she watched Tanner, unsure what the man was about to do. He held a certain power that made her edgy and leery. Damn, she hated to be unarmed.
              “Why am I here? Why didn’t you just kill me with the others?”
      Tanner stared at her for several long moments before finally giving her a shrug and dropping into the nearest recliner. “That was Hayden’s call. Besides, you’re not infected.”
      Infected? Was he serious?
              “Infected with what?”
      Tanner raised a brow at her outrage, which only pissed her off even more. “Every one of your co-workers was infected with the mutant virus.”
      She started shaking her head. No. It wasn’t possible. “I don’t believe you. They’d have to have been bitten by the beast to become infected.”
      Tanner leaned his head back to rest against the back of the chair. “We used to believe that too. Like a horror movie werewolf come to life. Now, we have proof that the rogues have a serum.”
      She watched him, searching for some hint of a lie. There was none. He believed everything he was saying. “They can’t infect humans. Does it work the same as the bite? Because, if so, then my soldiers at Shield couldn’t had been infected.”
              “What makes you say that?”
              “They would’ve changed within forty-eight hours, and during that time, they’d have some kind of symptom like fever or pain.”
      Tanner lifted his head and met her gaze. “You’ve seen it?”

Interview with Hayden Raines from Divided Loyalties

Thank you so much for having Hayden and I over today.
Lia: Hi, Hayden. How are you? Please introduce yourself to the readers.
Hayden: Hi. I’m one of the Marshals of Ashwood Falls. I assist the Alphas in their duties and manage the enforcers and sentries.

Lia: What were your thoughts when you first saw Christa and kidnapped her?
Hayden: *set his jaw before answering* My wolf said, “Mine.” So I just reacted. Shield had been compromised and we needed to shut it down. I really didn’t know what to do with her, but I knew she was my mate the instant I caught her scent.

Lia: What is your favorite part of her?
Hayden: Her strength and her mouth.

Lia: Boxers or brief?
Hayden: *growls low* That’s personal.
Lia: *sighs* Just answer the question.
Hayden: Neither. Next question

Lia: See that wasn’t hard. What do you do to relax?
Hayden: I’m always relaxed.
Lia: *shaking head* I know for a fact that you are not.
Hayden: Before Christa, I would let the wolf out and go for a long run. Now, I still let the wolf out, but after the man finds release with his mate.

Lia: *smiles* Any baby plans yet?
Hayden: *his lips twitch* I’m working on it.
Lia: Thanks for being a good sport and answering my questions. I have to go talk with Ana and Kieran to see where they’re headed.

Claimed By A Demon King by Felicity Heaton Cover Reveal and Excerpt

Claimed By A Demon King (Eternal Mates Book 2) 
by Felicity Heaton

          The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp.

Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since.

As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?

Claimed by a Demon King is due for release in ebook and paperback on February 22nd 2014 and will be available from all major online book retailers
