Review: Fatal Desire

Fatal DesireFatal Desire by Valerie Twombly

Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take the slave as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death. His only choice is to grant her freedom. 

Lileta wanted to kill Caleb, but when she is freed by this tempting male, her anger turns to a desire that can only prove fatal. Even if she could claim him as her own, her dark past makes her unworthy of his love. 

When their paths continue to intertwine, spiraling them to the brink of passion, can they resist the yearnings burning within them, or will they submit to their fatal desire?

Book two of the Guardians Series picks up where Eternal Flame left off furthering the overall story by following Caleb and Lileta as they deal with their unlikely pairing.  The dynamic between the two is intriguing and propels the book forward with a lot of tension and teasing.

I dare say I enjoyed book two more than book one since I liked the characters a lot.  Something about Caleb really resonated with me.  I follow Valerie on facebook and I think book 3 is due out soon and I have a theory who the couple will be.

Between the Waters by Renea Mason

Magic is no match for love…Between the Waters

Trapped somewhere between life and death, demigod Cyril has lost the ability to communicate with his love. But not before giving her valuable lessons in magic, as well as his blessing to move on without him.

 Coming to terms with Cyril’s absence isn’t easy, but Linden is doing her best to honor his wishes. Until she receives an unusual request from Moreaux, an estranged member of Cyril’s family. Bizarre things are going on with Mary, the former housekeeper, and Linden can’t let them go. But when her investigation leads to a mistake that nearly costs her life, Cyril’s best friend, Overton, steps in and violates a promise he made centuries before to bring her back from the dead.

 Gratitude turns to comfort, comfort turns to desire, and desire leads Linden to a shocking revelation. In her charge to uncover the truth behind Mary and Moreaux, she discovers a spell she can’t undo without leaving wounds on her heart, wounds she knows will never heal…

Spotlight: Valerie Twombly

Valerie Twombly

Paranormal Romance Author Valerie Twombly

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.

Review: Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned Series)

Fashionably DeadFashionably Dead by Robyn Peterman

Book 1, Hot Damned Series

Vampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist. 

At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead? 

Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator. 

To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One. 

Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride. 

Robyn Peterman’s Fashionably Dead is an action packed thrill ride from start to finish.  Fall in love with sassy Astrid as she navigates her new world as a vampyre and all the twist and turns that result.  Nothing is as it seems.  If you like Mary Janice Davidson’s Undead/Queen Betsy series, you will love this one!

Friday Freebie!

Review: Midnight Surrender

Midnight SurrenderHe makes her body sing, but Angelina wants more than just sex from her dark and delicious vampire. She wants love.

 Dmitri has spent the last year strumming the beautiful Angelina’s body into submission. One night she gives him an ultimatum, love or she walks. What will he choose?

Midnight Surrender is fast paced, steamy, and a great introduction to Valerie Twombly’s work.  Get thrown right into the action as Angelina and Dmitri meet for an intimate rendezvous.  Only afterward does Angelina express her true desire, a confession of love.  1-Click this short story to find out Dmitri’s answer.  Aside from needing a little extra world building, I thought this was fun.  Check out Ms. Twombly’s other titles such as “Eternal Flame”, “Amazon Heat”, and “Demon Slayer.”

Review: “The Light” by Kristy Denice Bock

LightWhen Madison goes to sleep at night, she transcends into the body of another woman. Each night she wakes as a victim of a violent, senseless crime. With each waking day she bears their pain, experiences their death, and is helpless to stop it from happening. With only her aging butler at her side, Madison tries to survive each day without falling into madness.

Brian Brinkley chose to save the life of his young ward marked for death. Thrust from the heavens because he dared disobey God, he tries to find some type of life quiet life among the humans. One chance meeting with Madison and his tranquility is shattered. When she becomes the target of a sadistic man, he vows to do everything in his power to protect her.

The Light” is a sweet romance published through Champagne Books and written by Kristy Denice Bock.  Kristy throws you into the thick of things as we follow her dynamic characters through every hardship the villain can muster.  The story has several twists and turns that keep up momentum all the way to the end.  You will not be disappointed with this one.

I must mention, however, that there are formatting problems with the Kindle edition.  I read this on my iPhone Kindle App and on my Kindle Fire and there were paragraphs starting mid sentence.  Additionally, the publisher could have run this through one last copy editor before posting this live.

I highly recommend this book because the story is great; the author tells a fantastic tale.  Just be aware that the formatting might not be up to par.  The Voice, book 2 in this series, is scheduled to come out soon!

Review: The Phantom and the Psychic

PhantomThe Phantom and the Psychic: A Paranormal Erotic Tale by Sophia Jones

A paranormal erotic short story, psychic Alyssa DeAngelo travels to a castle-turned-resort in the Italian countryside to assist its owner with his ghostly problem. There, she encounters Dominicus Romano, a tormented soul who has dwelt within the castle walls for six centuries. Can she help him find peace? 

I really enjoyed this short and steamy story.  The pacing was just right, there was just enough mystery to keep me guessing, and I was very happy at the end.  For $.99 you really can’t go wrong with this paranormal short story.
