Winterblaze by Kristen Callihan

books are my reality

The Darkest London series is one of the best paranormal romance series. Winterblaze was the best book in the series so far (chronologically speaking). The main character was Poppy Lane. She was bad ass and independent. Over the years she had lied to her husband and her family about what she really did. Her lies were exposed to her husband, Winston, in the last book (Moonlglow) when he discovered the paranormal world.

At the start of the story Poppy and Winston were separated. He was not quick to forgive her for all of her lies. Poppy heard that he was in danger. She rushed off to protect him. They were forced to work to together because the enemy was after both of them. It was nice for a change to have the romance revolve around a married couple. It isn’t a concept that is commonly seen in PNR.

Book Review: Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas

52 Letters in the Alphabet

I liked this book more than the first one. It was so emotionally powerful, and the characters developed well.

4.5/5 stars

Series: Throne of Glass #2

cover crown of midnight

Amazon description:

Celaena Sardothien is the king’s Champion—yet she is far from loyal to the crown, for the man she serves is bent on evil. But working against her master in secret is no easy task. As Celaena tries to untangle the mysteries buried within the glass castle, she can trust no one, not even her supposed allies Crown Prince Dorian, Captain of the Guard Chaol, and foreign princess Nehemia.

Then, an unspeakable tragedy shatters Celaena’s world. She must decide once and for all where her loyalties lie . . . and whom she will fight for.

(I read this book weeks ago but never posted a review. I’m finally getting around to it…but I don’t remember what I was going to say, so…

Kairos: An Enmortals Series 1

Maes Book Journal

Kairos

What if the enticing man who has just seized your every sense enlightens you to realms beyond our dimension? Can that spark of love withstand a war to protect mankind? Kairos: An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley is the spellbinding novel that reveals that the deepest love need not be confined to the trappings of one world.

The first in a series of adult paranormal romances, Kairos swirls in mankind, magic, and mythology as it chronicles the first blush of yearning between Sulwen Macgregor, a shy and sheltered college senior, and Logan Thatcher, a mesmerizing former playboy with arresting good looks, an offbeat sense of humor, and an ironclad moral code. When the two meet, Sulwen has no inkling that she soon will embark on an odyssey that not only exposes Logan as other than mortal, but uncovers astonishing aspects of her own being as well.

As Logan…

The Revenge Masquerade – Motivations and Inspiration-.

Jane Hunt Writer

InspirationTen days ago I posted  my inspirations behind The Dragon Legacy. This week I’m sharing my motivations behind my current  release The Revenge Masquerade.

DSCN1092When I wrote my debut novel I didn’t think past the initial story.  I wanted to write about a dragon in the twenty-first century searching for the last dragon egg. His motivation? To save the dragon race and ultimately the human race from domination by evil. I wanted my fantasy/paranormal characters to have a human appearance in our world but also be part of a secret paranormal world, not normally seen by us.

When people started to read my first story most commented on two of the secondary charactersJasmineJasmine, an independently minded young woman, destined to be guardian witch and Zane, the street wise wolf shifter.Zane

They were together in several scenes of  ‘The Dragon Legacy’ and people wanted to see how their…

Review: Her Sexy Sentinel by Jenn Burke

Kelly Jensen

Her Sexy Sentinel (Entangled Covet)

The most dangerous thing they could do is fall in love…

Callie Noble fled to Ottawa to escape danger. But she is far from safe. Overwhelmed by a strange new power she can’t control, Callie is terrified and painfully incapacitated. Her only hope is to seek the help of the one man who broke her heart…

Derrick Llewellyn is one of the Sentinels charged with the protection of the city’s mysterious secret. Seeing Callie again is a shock enough, but the electricity between them is stronger than ever. Still, loving another marked individual is forbidden, and Callie needs his help—not romantic complications.

But there are forces at work in the city, and Callie finds herself inexorably drawn into a world filled with danger and untold magics. A world where loving Derrick isn’t just forbidden…it’s the surest way to drive them both mad.

Jenn Burke is my writing partner and super-duper friend…

Enchanted, Inc.: Fresh Air in a Formulaic Genre

Novel Ninja

A pretty good description of me trying to read a random selection from the Paranormal Romance shelf. A pretty good description of me trying to read a random selection from the Paranormal Romance shelf.

Most of the time, when someone refers to “romantic urban fantasy,” my brain starts turning off.

Now, I’m not opposed to chick lit; in fact, I’ve been so far to the other side that when I was a favorite target of schoolyard teasing, the one thing they never managed to get under my skin was that I avidly read Nancy Drew as far back as the fourth grade. I didn’t get why it was weird. I’d already read every Hardy Boys I could get my hands on, after all! But chick lit fantasy seems to mainly be a genre where you have mere variations on a woman swooning over a vampire, werewolf, or . . . well, no, just vampires and werewolves. Yeah. It’s gotten a bit stale out there.

Well, it turns…

the blurb

Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm’s forbidden power.

As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.

Love.

Review: Wicked, by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lit Meg

wickedcover

Rating: 4/5

So, I went on a Jennifer L. Armentrout kick over the holidays. I read White Hot Kiss, Opposition, and this little beauty.

First: the cover. Meh. That’s the thing about covers for her books — they are never very good, unfortunately. This one is better than most of them; I like the background and the font, but the picture? Not feeling it.

On to other things…

This book takes place in New Orleans, with a 21-year-old woman, Ivy, who is a member of “the Order,” a secret organization who fight the Fae — otherworldly human-appearing nemeses roaming the cities unbeknownst to most humans. After Ivy encounters a Fae with strange powers who is not harmed by her trusty iron stake, she realizes that there is a bigger threat out there. The only person who is willing to be honest with her about that threat is Ren…
