Synopsis

“I have two weeks to protect myself from three horny, blackmailing vampires and their fangs.”

If I don’t obey them, the Stryx brothers will unleash my terrible secret.

A secret that will get me executed. Or worse.

Nero, Dante, and Raphael have trapped me right where they want:

Kneeling at their gorgeous feet, their unwilling slave.

They have my body, my obedience, and now they want my blood.

How long before I stop resisting their seductive games?

I must awaken my magic and fend them off before their kisses turn deadly.

Ensnared is book two of a reverse harem PNR academy bully romance series. It contains cursing, dark themes, and sexual situations.

My thoughts 💭

The Stryx brothers are still jerks for most of the book but they eventually get better. I actually started to like them. Alicia is strong and I adore her but she makes poor choices when feeling sympathy for people who didn’t care about her feelings at all! Helping Zariah out always comes back to bite Alicia on the a-&! I can’t wait to read the next book.

Blog Tour/ ARC Review: The Hunted by Bethany-Kris

THE HUNTED, a dark fairy tale retelling

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: January 6, 2020
Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal Elements, Fairy Tale, The Little Mermaid

SYNOPSIS

Let the hunt begin …

After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.

Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.

He should kill her.
Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.

Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.

And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.

*

In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed Arelle and Eryx story! Their chemistry was hot and I loved how they were together. This book grabbed my attention from beginning to end! The lies, betrayal, and secrets both on land and in the sea makes me need more! This was an interesting read and I definitely recommend it!

Synopsis

Turns out, I’m still in for a few surprises.

I may have found my mom, or rather she found me, but I still have questions only she can answer. Now, getting her to cooperate has presented new challenges. She’s still ruled by fear.

Hellbent on keeping my Infinity safe, we take a few chances. Chances, that might just backfire, but there’s noway I’m letting anyone control my future any longer. Determining what Leon is truly capable of is the only way to get rid of him. Forever.

Strength isn’t an issue, the bond with my Infinity is stronger than ever.

Now it’s our turn to hunt the hunter.

Reverse Harem MMFM with adult themes

My thoughts 💭

This was a good ending to the series… for now. Lol. I enjoyed the book but I didn’t care for Laura’s mom. She always had an excuse for why she was so crappy but Ares kind of got her told which I enjoyed. I liked how close Laura and the guys got with each other. But one thing that bothered me is a vision Maggie had in one of the earlier books and nothing happened. I was waiting for Mia to start more foolishness I guess. The series was interesting and I liked it.

Blog Tour: Tall, Dark & Furious by R.L. Mathewson



Title: Tall, Dark & Furious 
Author: R.L. Mathewson 
Genre: Paranormal, Romance 
Series: A Pyte/Sentinel Novel #6






From bestselling author R.L. Mathewson comes the sixth installment of the Pyte/Sentinel Series…
For readers who enjoy paranormal romance with a twist.
For three centuries, Trace waited for this moment, imagined all the things that he would do to the Pack that tried to kill him, and now that he was free…
All he could think about was the woman that he’d claimed as his own. She was everything that he’d always wanted and once he had his revenge, he would make her his.
Sam had resigned herself to a lot of things over the years, being the town joke, blacking out at inopportune moments, and living with a dog that hated her, but what she hadn’t planned on was suddenly finding five large men destroying her basement, looking for a tomb that she never knew existed. In one moment, her life changed forever, leaving her to wonder how she was going to make it out of this alive.




“I
really hate you,” Samantha informed the traitor that was following
her as she
 tightened
the towel around herself while she tried to ignore the splitting
headache that was starting to concern her. She quickly made her way
to her bedroom and once she was there, she slammed the door shut in
the little bastard’s face only to bite back a groan when she
realized that she wasn’t alone.

“What’s
this?” the man that had barged into the bathroom a total of fifteen
times to make sure that she was doing as she was told before stealing
her clothes, asked from where he sat on her bed, examining her old
iPod.
“It’s
an iPod,” she said, absently noting that he was now wearing a pair
of Nathan’s old jeans and had probably already searched her
brother’s bedroom.
“What
does it do?” he asked, as she walked over to her dresser, wondering
if he’d found anything that she could use to get out of this.
“It
plays music,” she said as she quickly grabbed some clothes, hoping
to get dressed before-
“And
this?” he asked, drawing her attention back to find him holding-
“Oh,
my god!” she gasped as she dropped the clothes in her arms to
rescue Bob before he realized what it was for, but something, mainly
the way that his eyes suddenly turned red and that growl that she
really shouldn’t find sexy was torn from his throat, told her that
he’d just figured it out.
With
a somewhat hysterical smile, she managed to grab Bob from him and
shove it back in the nightstand drawer with the hopes that there
wouldn’t be any follow up questions, but of course with the way
that her day was going, she really should have expected it.
“What
do you use that for, wife?” he asked, making her wince.
“It’s
umm, a sleep aide?” she said absently, wondering if he’d found-
“And
this?” he asked in that same deep sexy growl that let her know that
yes, yes, he had indeed found her pocket rocket.
The
sound of Bob Jr. turning on only confirmed it. Reminding herself that
she needed to tread lightly here, she turned around, and mumbled, “It
helps with the sleep aide,” noting the way that his red eyes
narrowed on her before she quickly turned around as she shut it off
and shoved it in the drawer with Bob. Once that was done, she turned
around and-
“What’s
a call?” he suddenly demanded as he picked up a large black duffle
bag that she hadn’t noticed before and dropped it on her bed.
“A
call?” she repeated back slowly as she did her best to keep her
gaze from wandering towards the cellphone on her nightstand.  
“I
need a call,” he said firmly as those terrifying red eyes locked on
her.


Q & A
  1. What is a Pyte?
A Pyte is a true immortal. He
is the product of a vampire and a human woman. Pytes can also have
children of their own day. They’re born as weak as a human baby,
but the difference is that they need to consume blood as well food in
order to thrive. If they don’t, they’re left weaker, will grow
slower to the point that they’ll appear to be younger than they
are.
If they survive to their
sixteenth birthday, they will go into a coma where they’ll go
through their transformation, becoming everything that they were
meant to become and once they’re done, they’re immortal and
nothing will be able to kill them. They’ll appear human but have
all the strengths of a vampire with none of the weaknesses. They can
go in the sun, withstand holy relics, and have the ability to create
another Pyte.
Once they’ve created another
Pyte, they’ll be able to create a stronger breed of vampire, which
is why Masters, shifters, and Sentinels all over the world are
desperate to get their hands on them. Masters want them to create a
stronger army of vampires for them while shifters and Sentinels are
willing to do anything to stop them.
Their immortality should make
them unstoppable, but it’s their one true weakness.
  1. It’s been four years
    since Fated was published, what happened?
Life.
Life happened, unfortunately.
In 2015 and 2016, we were dealing with a lot of stuff, a lot of
changes, and thankfully, we were finally able to move. It was a very
necessary move for our safety, so a lot of things were put on hold
for a while. I focused on taking care of the kids, getting them
settled, finally getting my son’s autism diagnosis, which has
actually been a big relief finally getting answers. I did my best to
keep working, I focused on contemporaries since they were the easiest
to write.
When I write paranormal
novels, I like to take my time, make sure the details are correct,
develop the characters a little more so that they are able to make
the world that I’m trying to create more believable. Basically, I
stress over every detail.
I never planned on letting
this much time go by between the books. I actually hadn’t realized
it had until this past year when readers started to ask about the
books. It’s the same for the Cursed Heart series. The books were
supposed to be out a lot sooner than this. My goal for 2020 is to
catch up with the books and get most of the series caught up.
  1. Who is Trace? We haven’t
    heard about him in the series before. Is he a new series?
Trace
is new to the series. His father is Ethan, who you met very briefly
in Tall, Dark & Heartless. He is the vampire that Caine contacted
to get information about Pytes so that he could help his mate. Trace
is his son that went missing centuries ago and has never stopped
looking for. 
Trace
is a Pyte and brand new to the series as is his mate. With that being
said, Kale plays a very important part in this book and you will get
to see the others as well. Jill and Joshua are in this book as well.
You will get more information in this book, more answers and a better
sense of where the series is heading. 
  1. Who
    will be next in the series?
Kale’s
book will be next. His book is titled
Unstoppable.
His mate will be the key to the series. I have a lot of plans for
that couple. It’s actually already started and I am looking forward
to getting back to it. I am hoping for a Halloween release, but I
don’t want to jinx myself. At this point, I’m just keeping my
fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
  1. Will
    Jill and Joshua ever get their own books?
Yes,
but it won’t be anytime soon. Joshua plays a crucial part in this
series so I need him to do a few things before we can redeem him. As
for Jill, her character has a few more trials to go through before
her story will be ready to be told.

  1. There’s
    a rumor going around that there will be a YA series for the Pytes.
    Is that true?
Yes,
there is a Pyte YA series in the works. I have been playing with the
idea for the past few years and trying to narrow it done to what I
want. I’ve been debating a few things and I’m almost ready to
start. I will say this, Marc will not be in this series only because
he will not have his mate until he’s well into his adulthood. The
one thing that I’m truly debating about the YA series is whether it
will be focused on one couple or a new couple for every book. I’ll
know more about where the series is heading once the first book is
done.
  1. What
    makes your Pyte/Sentinel series different than the rest?
Well,
for one, the concept of a Pyte is my creation, something that I’ve
been toying with since I was a kid. There are a lot of vampire
romance novels out there, with different takes on what a vampire is,
how they’re created, their weaknesses, etc. and they’re great,
but the Pyte/Sentinel series does it a little bit differently. I’ve
tried to create a world that could easily blend in with ours with
humans completely oblivious to the real world around them.

I’ve
created this world so that even readers who don’t normally like
paranormal romance enjoy these books because I try my best to make
the characters relatable. The Pyte/Sentinel world is not overwhelming
with paranormal aspects filling every page. The books ease readers
into the story and allow them to keep up without having to remember
all the different rules or concepts that make up this world.

My Thoughts 💭

I liked this book. Ari finds out what about her is so special. Fin also finds out he’s so much more than a prince of Hell. Asher was kind of disappointing. He’s fallen for his fathers lies and I’m kind of surprised he didn’t question things more. I enjoyed the action and drama.

Synopsis

You think it’s safe to walk alone at night. It’s not.

You think the only threat is other humans. It’s not.

Monsters are real. Demons are real. Vampires are real.

And I’m about to become one of them.

My name is Arianna Spero. I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until my mother lapsed into a coma. Now, I am her only hope. She made a deal with the devil, and on my 18th birthday he came to collect. But there’s a way to save her. There’s something the princes of hell want more than my mother.

Me.

So I signed my soul away and promised to pick a prince to marry. I would take the blood oath, become one of them, and give them an heir. I would become a princess of hell, and my mother would live.

I expected fire and brimstone. I expected pain and misery. I didn’t expect beauty. I didn’t expect magic.

I didn’t expect love.

But the princes are keeping secrets from me.

Secrets that could shatter everything.

My Thoughts 💭

This was an enjoyable read. Ari finds out her mom made a deal with the devil and to save her mom she has to choose one of Hell’s princes to be her mate/ husband/ king(I forgot…don’t judge lol). There’s more to Ari and the ending proved that to be true. By the end I didn’t know who to trust! I thought Fen was kind of innocent but he’s not! The warning Ari got in the beginning to not trust anyone was correct lol.
