REVIEW: David's Song By A. R. Talley

Annie only ever loved two men in her life. One broke her heart, the other married her. Four children and fifteen years later, Annie’s marriage is in trouble. Money is tight, arguments are plenty. Her husband questions the very foundation of their relationship. At his insistence, Annie takes off on a girl’s retreat in Las Vegas—a week to unwind and relieve stress. He hopes the old adage, “absence makes the heart grow fonder” will apply. But Las Vegas has its own challenges. Annie meets up with the young man who broke her heart—a man who is now a music megastar. Torn between long ago memories and a family she loves, Annie must decide which is of greater value—A second chance at lost love and unfulfilled dreams? Or commitment, trust, and love built on years of experience? David’s Song may be the deciding factor.


Oh my lordy this is one powerful novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat.This author writes these characters so strongly that you get attached and their emotions take you over. I kept crying all throughout this emotional book.

I just loved it.

Annie what a lovely character. So much like myself in her demeaner and personality and this she goes through with family, men and her work. I could definitely relate to her character.

David oh David. This is one of those guys you want to hate but hes so frigging charming you really cannot hate him. I really do love his charismatic creative character and I would go back and forth with if I wanted them to get together or not.

The amazing Jeremy. He is essentially a perfect man. The boy next door. Sweet kind loving patient smart not pushy or mean or hurtful. I so wanted to be mad at him at the end of this book for hurting Annie but at the same time I wanted them to get their happily ever after. But god I love Jeremy he is the nice guy you want to get the girl. Hes the guy every girl should fall for.

This is one strong love story that takes you back to what happened to Annie in her past back in college and brings you to a future that you arnt sure what or who she will end up with.

Love love love it. I cant wait to read more from this complelling author. Truly amazing.

REVIEW: Aran (Love Me Harder Book # 1) By Serena Simpson



The old wars have ended and the scientists no longer need the genetically engineered men they designed to fight for them. In the aftermath of the final battle, Aran’s choices are clear. Stay on his planet and be decommissioned for good or leave in search of a new home and the one thing he was told he could never have—a mate.
When Rena meets Aran at a party, she doesn’t know what to make of the imposing stranger or his desire to know her better. Targeted by a terrorist cell because of a job she no longer has, Rena must rely on Aran’s strength and cunning if she plans to live long enough to collect unemployment.
Every moment spent with Rena awakens feelings Aran has never experienced. She’s the one, his mate. Now all he has to do is convince her. With his past closer than he ever imagined, and the bright future he dreamed of within his grasp, Aran is willing to fight to the death for a chance to truly live.
This book contains adult content it is not recommended for readers under the age of 18


What an amazing little novel I read it within a few hours because I was so addicted to this amazing storyline that this author has created for us. This author immediately pulls you into Rena and Aran's amazing story, leaving no room for you not to become addicted to their amazing lovestory.Erotic but definitely amazing.
Rena what a very complicated and difficult woman but so smart and intelligent that you cannot love her .
And Aran holy moly just reading about him makes my mouth water. He is one truly amazing character who when you first read his character has no hope for finding his true love and his mate. But by the end of this story is sure he has.
I absolutely love this author and cannot wait to read more of these books
I have read similar unconventional erotic love stories that I would never thought would appeal to me. Im so trying not let out spoilers but if you love scifi and action mixed with love and erotica this is a must read.

5 amazing stars




Hi, nice to meet you my name is Serena. I am glad you decided to drop by!
Who am I? I am the mother of one teenager. She is my light and my inspiration. She is my heart and the reason I followed my dream. I learned through her it was not enough to just encourage her; she needed to see me practicing what I preached.
Who am I? I am a storyteller have been all my life. I love stories; my favs have hot guys, aliens, shifters or vamps I love them all.
My stories will feature them because I like the unusual or mixing everyday reality with just a hint of spice.
When I was younger, I saw the movie Jurassic Park in the theater with a friend. When we left, we scanned the sky looking for dinosaurs; it felt that real.
That's the perfect book the one that makes you think for a split second maybe it's all true.
That's my quest, but along the way, I will entertain you with stories of love that will make you laugh, cry and hug the one you love.
I will have several books coming out in 2017.

REVIEW: Taja's Dragon By Lisa Daniels


Taja’s Dragon

Taja’s doll-like good looks had made her the plaything of nobles for most of her life, but now she wants to make her own path. Even under the acting stable master, life is better. When an attractive foreign noble continues to appear when she needs help, Taja begins to fear that she will be pulled back into the life she left.

The way Phelan treats Taja is not like his behavior toward anyone else. With her, Phelan appears to want only to see her happy. When he talks with anyone else, his attitude is rather cold and condescending. Yet he somehow manages to win people over despite his attitude.

Determination sets her on a new and dangerous path. The question is should she go it alone, or is the noble more than what he seems?

Such a cute wonderful novella that definitely pulls you in and keeps you wondering what will happen next in Taja's story.

This book is  agreat start to introducing you to the storyline of these characters.
What Taja goes through in her life and what she finds out about who she truly is .Its just an amazing story. I got so hooked I didnt even realize I was almost done reading it.

And Phelen oh my what a great character. Mysterious and sweet and caring and nothing like the other men she has met in her life. What he reveals to her about her past will change her life forever.

Lisa Daniels is a (young) retired school teacher who resides in Miami. After five years of teaching,
Lisa Daniels found that it wasn’t quite the world that she wanted to inhabit. After leaving her position, she moved to Miami. She hasn’t regretted it.
In her worlds, Lisa Daniels creates characters that go beyond the usual narrative. While they definitively include romance, Lisa Daniels strives to make the worlds more real with characters that are more than just cardboard cutouts of the genre. All of the main characters (and many of the secondary ones) have a rich history that span much longer than the stories themselves. This makes it easy to weave the stories together so that you can see characters you met in previous tales and see how they have managed since. Letera is a world teaming with romance, action, and stories – it is a world that Lisa Daniels loves to explore with her readers, one character at a time.

REVIEW: Feast Of Fates (Book One Of The Four Feasts Till Darkness Series) By Christian A. Brown


Morigan lives a quiet life as the handmaiden to a fatherly old sorcerer named Thackery. But when she crosses paths with Caenith, a not wholly mortal man, her world changes forever. Their meeting sparks long buried magical powers deep within Morigan. As she attempts to understand her newfound abilities, unbidden visions begin to plague her—visions that show a devastating madness descending on one of the Immortal Kings who rules the land. With Morigan growing more powerful each day, the leaders of the realm soon realize that this young woman could hold the key to their destruction. Suddenly, Morigan finds herself beset by enemies, and she must master her mysterious gifts if she is to survive.
This is one dynamic author. The first installment in a four book series is such an amazing start. I was definitely hooked. He really is amazing at building a story you can imagine as you read it and making you fall in love with each and every character he writes even the ones you love to hate.

The clash of two immortal kings is felt throughout the realm in Feast of Fates by Christian A. Brown. No tired story lines or boring characters here; Brown has created a thrilling, action-packed fantasy suffused with elements of folklore and legend, and spiced with a bit of metal magic for some steampunk flair.

Geadhain is on the brink of an all-out war, and the fates and prophecies seem bleak. The peaceful kingdoms of Eod and Zioch, led by mystical brothers Magnus and Brutus, are in danger; a mysterious dark force is invading from within. To the east, the ever-menacing city of Menos looms, led by the Iron Queen as she waits for revenge and watches for a chance to strike.
Heroes, heroines, villains, sages, sorcerers, knights, kings, witches, thieves, necromancers, and shape-shifters converge in a plentiful cast, each with a unique history, voice, and role to play in Feast of Fates. No one is quite who they seem, and when a humble sorcerer’s errand girl, Morigan Lostarot, whirls into the Wolf’s blacksmith shop, the gears of fate put into motion an unstoppable force.

Absolutely cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

5 stars

REVIEW: Yesterday's Promise By Michele Paige Holmes



**Amazon Top 30 bestseller in Scottish Historical Romance**
YESTERDAY’S PROMISE: A Hearthfire Scottish Historical Romance, Book 1
In the year 1761--Scottish Highlands:
Nineteen-year-old artist Katherine Mercer dreams of selling her paintings to help support her struggling family. Before she has the opportunity, Katherine learns she is to be sold—or practically so—given in marriage to a lord she has never met or even heard of. In return, a much-needed settlement will be made upon her mother.
Katherine’s situation goes from frightening to surreal when her husband-to-be Laird Collin MacDonald arrives with an entourage of men, each heavily armed and speaking with a thick brogue. As if leaving all she knows behind and traveling to another country with strangers isn’t bad enough, Katherine soon discovers a Scottish heritage she knew nothing of, a brother-in-law who wants her dead, and far more at stake with her paintings than she had ever imagined. Forced to turn to her reclusive husband for answers, comfort, and even her very survival, Katherine begins to unravel the mysteries of her past and what it is to love and be loved.

LOVING HELEN
MARRYING CHRISTOPHER
TWELVE DAYS IN DECEMBER
YESTERDAY’S PROMISE (Scottish Historical, Book 1)
A PROMISE FOR TOMORROW (Scottish Historical, Book 2, coming Fall 2017)
HEARTHFIRE ROMANCE COLLECTION, VOLUME 1 (box set)


Another amazing bOok by Michelle Paige Holmes and she definitely doesnt disapoint at all. I have become a big fan of this author as I have reviewed many of her books and I have fallen in love with each character and book she writes. She is truly one of the top authors out there right now.
THis is a wonderful novel about The Scottish/British termoil and how a young man gets through his father being murdered and ends up meeting a competing scotish family where he slowly grows up and his and a young girl fall in love.
Collin and Katie not a pair you imagine to fall in love but it works and they just fit and compliment eachother.
Collin is definitely a different character full of pride and family honor. In the begining he is utterly stunned that a lil child such as Katie would dare talk to him but at the same time he cant be cruel to an innocent young child.
I wont lie I have a big weakness for Scottish novels they just call to me and this one was no different absolutely amazing.

More than a decade ago, Roman Calder had a scorching affair with the sister of one of his best friends. Augustine Spencer drove him so crazy he thought of nothing but her. The only thing they did more often than heat the sheets was fight.

Gus Spencer is known to Washington insiders as the president’s secret weapon. Gorgeous and brilliant, Gus runs the press pool with the determination of a shark. No one dares to cross her, not when she’s known for having a spine of steel…but long ago one man melted her down. Despite the fact that she’ll never forgive Roman for breaking her heart, now that they work together she can’t get him off her mind. 

When a dangerous investigation leads both Roman and Gus to London, the heat between them becomes unbearable. As they begin to unravel an international conspiracy, they find themselves falling all over again. But when a killer threatens their world, can they fight to stay together or will the sins of their past keep them forever apart?

REVIEW: Controlling Heritage (A Control Series Novel) By Anna Edwards

 
Sophie North is James North’s little sister. She has suffered through the brutal attack on her brother all because of his sexual beliefs. That is why she now hides behind the prim and proper personal assistant who wants to find her way in the world. All she really wants though is someone to own her.
Grayson Moore, it a world famous Native American movie star. His action packed Renegade series has made him a household name and with the fame and fortune comes the reputation. He likes his alcohol strong, his cars fast and his bed full of women. But even that is getting boring now.
Controlling Heritage tells the story of how other's views on what you should be can leave you with no control. Unsolicited opinions will twist you until you no longer recognise or trust the person you can be.
The story features; orgies, suspense, a death, BDSM, and lots of love. You have been warned.
Step into the world of Control!

This is such a hot, steamy and suspenseful read…the fifth in the Control series this is a wonderfully captivating and erotic story… the author really knows how to create sexy alpha men and beautiful smart women who together have great chemistry.

I so love this writer. Anna is able to draw you into her books and keep you captivated to the end.

You meet Sophie and Grayson through out the series. However, this is the first time you get a proper look into their own life. How they got together, the dynamics of their relationship and the total control they have over each other.

Grayson worships Sophie and will do anything to protect her. However, when secrets are revealed, will Sophie do the same?

This book totally had me hooked from the very beginning with the wonderfully well written storyline that flowed effortlessly throughout the whole book and Sophie and Grayson made me feel like I was peeking through a window watching as their story unfolded!
Fantastic book! Incredibly written and developed storyline that pulled me in right from the beginning. Grayson and Sophie are wonderful characters who are great together. It's fast-paced with hot and steamy scenes which include BDSM and orgies. Looking forward to more from this series.
