Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Reviewed by Jen

This book gave me absolutely everything I wanted! This was the third (and presumably) final book in the Hidden Legacy series and it delivered in every way. It was action packed. It was smart. It had a great romance. And it left just enough open that I can hold out hope for more books in the series.

Nevada and the rest of her family are poised to become a legal House in order to thwart her grandmother’s plan to force them all to bend to her will. We all know Nevada is a powerful truthseeker, but here, her talents grow even more. It’s been such a thrill watching her come into her gift. And it’s been almost as much fun to unravel the mysteries of her family’s powers. We saw Catalina in action in White Hot. Now it’s Arabella’s turn –and she is awesome. So is Leon, the cousin we thought to be without power. They’re all fascinating and unique, and still they are only a fraction of the phenomenal supporting cast. [Read more…]

Review: Spellbinder by Thea Harrison

Reviewed by Jen

Thea Harrison shows once again why she is an auto read author for me with this latest in her Elder Races spin off trilogy. This is Morgan La Fae’s story and If you’ve loved to hate this guy in previous books, I have a feeling you will end up loving him every bit as much as I do by the time this book is done.

Morgan has done some very bad things, but they’re not really his fault. He has been under the hold of a powerful spell which forces him to obey the orders of Isabeau, the fae queen. Thankfully, as the story begins, an injury and a poorly worded command from the queen allows him a temporary escape. He plans to use that time researching the spell and the powerful artifact which allows Isabeau to wield it. What ends up happening, however, is that he comes across a wildly talented musician named Sidonie and begins attending concerts on her tour. Only, his attention gets noticed by the wrong person and Sid ends up paying the price. [Read more…]

Review: The Polar Bear’s Baby by Sophie Stern

Reviewed by Shelly

Sometimes I read a short whimsical story to get away from some heavier reads. This is one of those. I don’t even know why I picked this one. Maybe I thought the cover was pretty or maybe I pushed the nefarious ‘click one’ button versus the sample and voila – I’ve got a new book. But who looks at their kindle and doesn’t get excited when they see a new book? Either way, in my life I’ve made worse choices than this book.

This is my first Sophie Stern book and is the first in her ‘Honeypot Babies’ series. Human Mia just found out that she’s pregnant by bear shifter Aidan. The shifter world is a given in this so there’s no mystery, shock or cry of indignation with the shifter knowledge; even knowing that Mia was a little, just a little, concerned with carrying the cub of a bear. Can’t blame her there. [Read more…]

Review: The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost

Reviewed by Jen

I read the first book in this series, but when I picked up this second installment in the Broken Destiny trilogy, I could not remember a single thing that happened. That’s what happens when a publisher takes a three years pause between books. Even as I continued to read here, very few of the details came back to me. The good news is, Jeanine Frost does such a great job of filling in the blanks, even a brand new reader could jump into this book and understand what’s going on.

The biggest things you need to know are as follows: Ivy and Adrian are destined for tragedy. She is the last Davidian. He’s the last in their long line of betrayers. And betray her he did in book 1. Now he wants to make amends. The two of them are in love, but Ivy doesn’t trust him not to fulfill his destiny again. Meanwhile, Adrian will do anything to win her back. [Read more…]

Review: Silver Silence by Nalini Singh

Reviewed by Jen

I’ve been a fan of the Psy Changeling series for a long time. And if at any point you would’ve asked me which of Nalini Singh’s heroes were my favorite, I would have said without hesitation, the ice cold Psy men who are thawed into emotion by their heroines. Kaleb… Judd… my beloved Arrows… now they have some serious competition in a lovely gentleman bear named Valentin.

I absolutely, completely, 100% fell in love with this changeling. He is head over heels for Silver Mercant and he is unwavering in his devotion to her. As far as I’m concerned, he says everything right; he does everything right; he is sexy; he is powerful; he is all of the things. [Read more…]

Review: White Hot by Ilona Andrews

Reviewed by Jen

Sometimes I wonder if it would be possible for me to ever not love an Ilona Andrews book. Because every time I pick one up, it satisfies me like nothing else can. Kate Daniels is hands down my favorite heroine, but I’ve got to tell you, Nevada Baylor is right on her heels. Like Kate, she’s strong, funny, loyal, and powerful, with an uber-strong and sexy hero to help heat up the page. But Nevada is definitely her own character and even though this book inspires Kate-level love, it does it on its own merits.

Review: Dominic’s Nemesis by D Alyce Domain

Reviewed by Aisha

I haven’t tried a self published paranormal from a new author in a while, but the blurb on this one reeled me in. Dominic is a tortured hero whose abilities have made his life miserable since childhood. Very miserable. Now he lives a life of solitude, hiding the gifts that make him special. Only his brothers know his secret. And he keeps even them at a distance. But his life changes forever when Eden becomes a part of it. [Read more…]

Review: Dark Alpha’s Lover by Donna Grant

Reviewed by Ronelle

You can’t escape a Reaper. The brotherhood of elite, paranormal assassins answer only to Death. And when Death says it’s time, don’t expect to weasel out of it. A Reaper will be coming for you.

The same is true for Catriona. The half-Fae thinks that her family’s magic—a magic that has gotten others killed—has skipped her. That is, until it explodes into being with no warning and proves to be stronger than anyone could ever have dreamed. On top of that, she’s captured the lustful attention of a Reaper.

A Reaper who wants her and will risk anything to have her and keep her safe. [Read more…]

Review: Bait N’ Witch by Abigail Owen

Reviewed by Ronelle

What could possibly go wrong when you fall in love with the witch-hunting father of the girls you’re nannying? I mean, it’s not like you’re wanted by his employers or anything…

Except that is exactly the position Rowan McAuliffe is in. Secretly trained in magic by an unusual source, forced into using said magic against others by a power-mad werewolf, and on the run from the Mage High Council who seek answers… let’s just say she’s in a bind. But Delilah of Legendary Consultants has just the plan to get her out of trouble and with no other options, Rowan takes the chance.

Greyson Masters is the Council’s best enforcer–a witch hunter who lays down the law. He’s also raising triplet witches alone. No one understands the powers his children wield and on top of that, his girls are on the cusp of becoming teenagers. He needs help and he needs it bad. Delilah has just the witch for him and before he can blink, Rowan is on his doorstep.

Their attraction is instantaneous but the question is, will their opposing positions allow them a Happily Ever After? [Read more…]
