Trapped in an abusive relationship for two years, leaving could prove deadly for Becca Kian. But when she’s pushed a step too far, Becca has no choice but to flee. After an accident that leaves her unconscious, Becca wakes to find herself in the cabin of a man who’s as entrancing as he is dangerous. Because this man makes her want to dream — dream of a world where Alex Scar doesn’t exist.
Both Minotaur and human, Aster Tavros is a shifter in hiding. Living in Woodland Creek, he’s made no effort to form relationships, too afraid to allow others to see his true nature. Because when they do, they run. Yet when Becca comes crashing into his life, he ignores every one of his rules. Passion ignites between them, but when secrets and pasts collide, Aster has a choice. He can hide his identity, or reveal his true self to save Becca, all the while, risking losing her forever…

She woke in a strange bed, surrounded by unfamiliar smells and in a world of pain. Yet she wasn’t in a hospital, so that meant the man who’d ran her off the road had heard her desperate plea.

Attempting to sit up, Becca gasped as her skin stretched, igniting fire through her nerves. Feet sounded from the other room and a second later, a man appeared at the door. He was huge. Alex had been well built, and covered in sleek muscles, but this guy was on a whole other level. He filled the doorway, to the point where Becca thought he’d have to turn slightly sideways to fit through. His arms bulged with layer upon layer of pure, lethal strength. She was sure she’d be unable to wrap her fingers around them. A tight T-shirt stretched over the chiseled planes of his chest and stomach, and seemed to be painted to his skin. Becca gulped as her eyes traveled up to his face. She’d never met a man like him. Rough, masculine beauty, with skin of bronzed gold and hair of the darkest ink, he made Becca’s skin flush hot, and her mind scramble.

“You’re awake.”

She didn’t answer, her voice lodged in the pit of her stomach.

“Are you okay?”

The same stupid question snapped Becca from her daze. “You ran me over. Of course I’m not okay.”

An unreadable emotion flashed across his gaze, before he said “Hmm, yeah, sorry about that.” He rubbed the back of his neck in an awkward gesture. The movement scattered Becca’s thoughts, her eyes focusing on the flex of muscle and stretch of clothing.

“So, why no hospital?”

Her eyes zeroed in on his face, narrowing; she’d not be telling her secrets to another man again. She’d learned her lesson. “None of your damn business.”

Deciding it was time she was back on the road, running from her demons, Becca forced herself up. She couldn’t stop the noise of pain, even though she’d bitten her lip in hopes of doing so. From encountering years of hurt, physical pain wasn’t anything compared to months of mental torture.

“Wow, what are you doing?” He entered the room, seeming to take up every inch of space. “Get back in bed. You’re in no state to be going anywhere.”

Becca ignored him and glanced around the room. “Where’s my jacket and boots?” Her muscles protested with each miniscule movement.

“Get back in bed before I put you there.”

She would never follow orders from a man again. “Listen to me, asshole, I don’t take orders kindly, and definitely not from men who’ve run me off the road.” Fire filled her words, an old anger awoken.

Forcing herself to take a step, her head swam. A wave of dizziness passed through her like a drug. Her limbs went limp, losing any energy she’d had. Breath rushing out in a startled gasp, Becca’s knees gave way, and she braced for the pain that would follow from hitting the floor.

It never came. He’d moved with such speed, she’d not been aware of him reaching for her. He held her as if she weighed nothing, his strength and heat almost overpowering.

“I said, back in bed.”

Becca narrowed her eyes, mustering as much defiance as possible into her tone. “I want my jacket, boots and bike.”

Ignoring her demand, he carried her toward the bed. Becca struggled, though the effort was painful and pointless. Even fully healed, she’d have had no chance against this man. Mouth set in a hard line and eyes blazing with rage, Becca attempted to hold her ground and masked the fear within.

A part of her wondered if she’d run from one abusive man and straight into the arms of another. Would he hold her captive? For all she knew, this man could be even worse than Alex. Yet even as her pain whispered her fears, her instincts didn’t tell her to run. That was why she fought him when she knew he was right, because her first instinct was to melt. But her instincts had been wrong before. She’d never suspected Alex to be the man he was.

But you were innocent then, the seductive voice whispered. You’re not innocent anymore… Melt!

Shaken by the direction of her thoughts, Becca lost her fight and succumbed to being pressed tightly against his body, her breasts crushed against the heated wall of his chest.

“Bed,” he whispered roughly.

Her mask slipped for a second as she pictured not this stranger’s face, but Alex’s with his lips curled in a cruel smile, and the look in his eyes telling her he intended to hurt her tonight. Cold air replaced what had once been sizzling heat. Loss and loneliness pulsated through her, and she bit her lip to keep the desperate, needy sound inside her contained.

Placing her onto the bed, he retreated immediately. Becca stared at the man who’d been manhandling her a second ago, but now watched with concern from across the room.

“I won’t hurt you.”

“Too late for that,” Becca muttered before she could stop herself.

“Not intentionally. If you would really like to leave, then be my guest, but your bike won’t start and the more you move around, the longer it’s going to take for your back and hands to heal.”

At the mention of her wounds, Becca felt the full extent of her pain. She’d been so determined to escape that she hadn’t felt the stab of agony as she flexed her hands, or moved her back. Looking down, Becca gazed at her torn fingers. Slowly turning her hands over, she inspected the pads of gauze taped to each palm.

“You should have worn gloves,” he murmured softly. Though Becca was certain she heard a thread of anger.

“Didn’t exactly have much time,” Becca whispered, not bothering to look up.

“What’s that supposed to mean?” he asked, taking a step closer.

“Nothing.” Looking up, she met his gaze. “What’s your name?”


“Aster. I’m Becca. I’m gonna take that offer of rest now.”

He smiled and it was completely disarming. Aster had a dominating, lethal presence, but when he smiled with a softness in his eyes, it made her relax and forget the walls she’d built around herself to keep people out. “I’ll see you in the morning then. Shout if you need anything.”

The door closed with a soft click, and a heaviness spread throughout her body. Lying back, she pulled the covers over herself and succumbed to sleep. She should have been frightened; after all, she’d killed a person earlier that day, and Alex would be hunting her down. But even though she was in a stranger’s house, and her only mode of transport was broken, safety wrapped a protective arm around her as she relaxed, preparing for sleep. It was silly, and irrational, but still, she felt safe.

Rating:  5 ✩✩✩✩✩

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but it most definitely won’t be the last.  It should be packaged with the following label. “WARNING!  Nothing will be done, food prepared, fires put out, etc. Until the reader has completed the final chapter.”  Because that’s what will happen.

I had no idea what to expect from this book.  I accepted it as an ARC for my blog, so I knew the blurb must have interested me, because I’ve severely cut down the amount of books I take in to review.  My TBR short list, is a mile long.  But when I downloaded the book to my Kindle, I was clueless in what to expect.  

I read the first paragraph and BAM I was hooked.  Breakfast and lunch were made and consumed while reading.  I might have burnt something.  I was enraptured.  The pacing was perfect which kept me turning the pages, having to find out what happened next.  The characters were well fleshed.  In Aster’s case extremely well fleshed.  He and his beast are so going on my Book Boyfriend list.  And Becca makes me want to alternately hug her close, or shake some self confidence and self worth into her.  I love that the main characters have to grow in some way before they are able to accept each other.  They are not perfect people, but you want to root for them and cheer them on, when they finally realize, that they don’t have to be perfect to be loved..

This book touched me on many levels.  I look forward to exploring more books by this author.  I would recommend this book to anyone who like paranormal shifter romances.

other is a laid back tow truck business owner. The two things they have in
common? They know they want to live life in a ménage relationship, and Sarah is
the woman for them. 
Sarah has too many doubts about herself to
believe she can be enough for one man let alone two. Can these souls find what
they need to grow together, or will they leave more emotional scars to match
their physical ones?

Heat and heart while learning to accept a bit of help.

I absolutely adored this book.  If you love a good ménage or maybe a bit curious, then this is the book for you.  It will tug at your heartstrings one moment, then have you fanning your yourself in the next.  There is plenty of love and lust interspersed with humor and growth.

Sarah has to grow and heal, before she can accept Silas and Jeremy fully into her life.  Luckily these sexy men are more than able to give her the encouragement and support she needs to get there.

I heartily recommend this book to anyone who loves a HEA, and ménage.  This baby just went to #1 favorite Lori King book.

“There was need laced
in every twist and sweep of his talented tongue. A need for something tangible,
something to connect him to the safety of the real world, to the living
breathing life he still held on to. A distraction from the death and sorrow
that carried over from months at war

Mason Gamble and Nash Vincent are pros at making people
sweat. As former Army Rangers who run the toughest, ball-busting fitness boot
camp in Michigan, they take great pride in that fact. But thanks to the
knockout brunette housesitting next door, suddenly they’re the ones
experiencing excess perspiration. Fortunately, the perfect opportunity to be
neighborly presents itself courtesy of a package delivery snafu.
Regan Wallace has trust issues. Specifically,
trusting that her best friend won’t make good on her threat to send a
Strip-O-Gram for Regan’s birthday. Is it any wonder she’d jump to the wrong
conclusion when two gorgeous, camo-garbed hunks land on her front doorstep?
Woops. The crazy part? They don’t seem the least bit scandalized or offended by
her boneheaded blunder. Judging by the sinful heat in their eyes, they’re all
too happy to provide her with a little two-on-one dirty dancing. For a woman
recovering from a bad breakup, fielding the interest of two sex-on-a-stick men
is both surreal and exhilarating. Indulging a three-way fling? Completely out
of her comfort zone. But with her stay limited to a week, some
no-strings-attached sex might be precisely what she needs to get her confidence
back in stride.None of them are prepared for the consequences
of a sexy fling feeling like so much more. As Regan’s stay draws closer to an
end, Mason and Nash realize there’s no way in hell they’re letting the perfect
woman slip through their fingers. And when it comes to fighting for her love,
there are no fitter warriors for the ultimate battle to her heart.

him. But when she learns what he wants, will she run again, or stick around to
be Snake’s Salvation?

Bewitched by the Alpha will keep you turning the pages.

Werewolves, witches, and wounded souls make for an enchanted story in the town of New Hope. Although Arden Dixon is sexy as all get out, he needs to work through some trust and control issues, before he can win the feisty Quinn Lamone, then together they need to find the rogue pack that is creating new werewolves and keep them from destroying their lives.

Well worth the time and money.  Well written, smooth flow, and characters you can’t help but want to get to know.  I finished reading this enticing story yesterday and eagerly await the next book in the series.


Bewitched by the Alpha: Bite of the Moon released October 27, 2015

After a lifetime of guilt over his mother’s death, Arden Dixon has grown weary of the push and pull on his soul as the Alpha of the Dixon Pack. It seems he’s forever playing peacemaker, and protecting the innocent. When he finds a beautiful woman in the midst of a painful transition, he realizes that his fate lies in her hands.

The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time
Quinn wanted nothing more than to live her solitary life in peace selling her treasures in her own store, but a brutal attack by a wolf has given her no choice but to embrace a new family and a new way of life. That doesn’t mean she has to embrace the whole mating thing though, right?

New Hope
A man with a need to protect, and a woman with a desire to stand on her own. Can these two souls find peace in each other, or will the brutality of their circumstances break them for good?

The Rock Star of Dark Fantasy Dark Secrets by Madeline Pryce

Dark Secrets

Book #2 of the Dark Series


We have triumphed!  It seemed like everyone and thing in the world was against me reading this book.  But even with the constant interruptions we persevered, me in not giving up and the author in writing a story so compelling, that even with my atrocious memory I had no problem getting right back into the thick of things.  And the thick of things is normally where I found myself.  Ella and Micah went from one adventure to another.  Talk about intense, you best sit on your hands if you don’t want to bite your nails, and the sexual tension is a five alarm fire with no rescue in sight.  Fans and ice cold drinks are a definite must.

I went back and reread Dark Cravings and Dark Innocence which I highly recommend reading before reading Dark Secrets.  I absolutely enjoyed the experience and was reminded why I fell in love with Madeline Pryce’s writing.  I did wonder how she was going to top Dark Innocence, since that was my all time favorite book ever written.  Yes, that was past tense, because she did it!  I didn’t think it was possible.  I didn’t think she could come close to the emotions she evoked in me with Dark Innocence, but not only did she succeed, she surpassed.  Now here is my dilemma, I wanted to give her six stars of five for Dark Innocence.   How do I rate Dark Secrets?  Seven stars?  We are going to have to change the rating system.

Micah and Ella are once again thrown into turmoil, fighting to keep their family together and safe.  To protect each other and understand the love and mate bond they have for each other.  Is it the bond or is it real?  Would the other be there without the bond?  This is just one of the questions Micah and Ella must answer.  They must deal with growing powers and responsibilities, and of course the ever growing amount of people and things that want either want them dead or want to control them.

I laughed, I cried, I think I cussed a time or two. I know I definitely cheered, I might have swooned, I certainly drooled.  But most of all I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I bow to Madeline for an awesome read and for dethroning Dark Innocence.  I didn’t think it was possible.

I was given this book free of charge by the publisher for an honest review.

Dark Innocence

Book #1.5 of the Dark Series

Dark Innocence

Awesome, Spectacular, Tremendous!  This book has totally surpassed my expectations and they were high as I rated Dark Cravings 5 stars.  Dark Innocence was even better.  This book is so well written the author is able to draw you in from the very first page and keeps you turning the page till the last.  I was so engross we could have had an earthquake and I would have just taken my tablet and moved under a doorway and kept on reading.  The interacting between the main character sizzles, but it also makes your heart catch.  Some of the supporting characters bring some very interesting scenes to this book that will make you laugh and stand up and cheer.

Micah has been dethroned and Dante has been crowned king.  He is the ultimate in male heroes.  Just thinking about him makes me sigh and not just from his looks.  The way he treats Hannah is enough to make me weep with jealously.  Then there’s Hannah she’s not the brilliant, insecure, air head from the first book.   Unable to forget one second of the pain and torture she’s endured she’s on a downward spiral of drugs, booze, and meaningless sex.  Dante is the one to give her the desire to find the strength within herself to pull out of it.

All in all I give this book a six because it was beyond amazing.

Dark Cravings

Book #1.0 of the Dark Series


This book was awesome. I just finished it earlier this evening. Wow, talk about smoking. I think the fire alarm went off. I am on pins and needles waiting for Dark Innocence, (Hannah and Dante’s story). The excerpts and summary of Dark Carvings did not prepare me for how blown away I was with this book. It was beyond awesome

Ella Grey a half/vampire and Micah MacGregor her Shadow hunter partner are hit with a lust spell by a Succubus.  These two previously hostile partners spend the next four days having hot, hot sex.  The only problem is this pesky little prophecy about the two of them getting together causing the destruction of all.  Ella is beautiful, tough, yet loyal.  And Micah is hot, shoulders to die for, mysterious, and just as loyal.  The supporting characters are just as loveable, except maybe the bad guys, Micah and Eli’s dad, and the vampire Queen to name a few.  This is a definite must read.

Fated Desire (The Twisted Destiny Saga #1)

22092525A Diamond in the rough! While fast paced and a fairly smooth read, I did get a bit confused as to who was talking in the beginning in one of the scenes, but it quickly straightened itself out. And to be totally honest my blood sugars kept dropping on me at the time, so I wasn’t at my sharpest.

The Twisted Destiny Saga looks to be shaping up nicely. Cora is a feisty character that you can’t help but root for, and Ryan is one hot Alpha Werewolf that I wouldn’t mind being mated with. The chemistry between the two is sizzling, just the way I like it. Their story is just beginning. Fated Desire has a bit of a cliffhanger, but one that is done well. I normally get totally pissed when a book ends with a cliffhanger, but not in this case. Because the story had come to a conclusion, kind of like that of a tv series, where the episode ended, not as a “to be continued” but as a continuing storyline that they will pick up next time.

Franca Storm has given us a great cast of characters; sexy werewolves, evil vampires, witches, seekers, a princess, a vampire prince, a couple of kings, and the white and dark realms. I eagerly look forward to the next book in the saga. Franca Storm is an author to keep an eye on, as I believe her books are only going to improve until she is totally blowing our mind.
