Synopsis

Alaric Schuyler.

Enigmatic, cocky, and my new brother-in-law.

He had cerulean blue eyes and a smile so beautifully devious it could entice the devil to do his bidding.

We were never supposed to happen.

One night changed everything, tying him and me together in a sordid twist of fate, trapping me in his dark, chaotic world.

The lucid dreams and sick fantasies followed.

He became the star of my nightmares, always lurking in the shadows, awakening dormant demons one esoteric melody at a time.

I became his muse, a part of everything he did.

He would be the death of me.

And in the end, I wanted nothing more.

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

*** Contains graphic language, frequent graphic sex, explicit scenes of horror, and very dark themes.***

My thoughts 💭

This book was good and definitely a page turner for me. You know something isn’t quite right and you have to keep reading to try to understand what’s really going on. Alaric has finally found a woman whose crazy calls to his crazy and intends on keeping her. Cat has no idea if what’s happening to her is real or her mind is playing tricks on her. I definitely can’t wait to read the next book!

Laura Foley hooks up with the handsome author Cohan Laity while on holiday in Spain. For Laura, a holiday fling is just what she needs – but that’s all she needs, refusing to see him again once the holiday comes to an end.
But a besotted Cohan won’t take no for an answer. He follows her back to the UK and infiltrates every aspect of her life to get to her, threatening everything she loves and holds dear.
She tries reasoning. She tries hiding. She even tries involving the police as Cohan stalks her every move and worms his way into her family by dating her sister.
Laura is terrified but won’t capitulate. She must take matters into her own hands, and he may well have underestimated her as the hunter becomes the hunted.






As a working nurse, Joy Wood has been creating stories in her head for years, but never found the time to do anything with them – life just got in the way somehow.
Five years ago, she was made redundant and moved to the picturesque seaside town of Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire. She loves nothing better than walking along the seafront and thinking up ideas for stories. Her debut novel ‘For the Love of Emily’ was written by Joy “just to see if she could really,” – she had no idea it would sell like it did and continues to do so. Joy is quick to point out it is most definitely one for adults only! At various book signings, readers recognized Joy from articles in local papers and suggested they’d like a hospital romance, so she concentrated on ‘Knight & Dey’ a hospital romance with a difference. Someone dies on the first page, but Joy hasn’t given away the gender of the victim, nor the gender of the assailant. The idea is for the reader to engage with each character in the book, trying to decide which one dies, and who did it.
Next came ‘Chanjori House’ – a love story set in Scotland. Eve was in love with Rick but he went away. Eleven years later he’s back, but she’s married to his father. Sparks fly . . . revenge is a dish best served cold.
‘April Fool’ is Joy’s 4th novel and she is hoping readers will love it. April Master is an undercover police officer trying to raise enough money to send her son for surgery in the USA. Her remit is to expose the dynamic and charismatic gallery owner who is behind the heists of expensive oil paintings. She embarks on an affair with him – just to bring him to justice she tells herself. But is he too clever for her . . . or is she too clever for him?  
Who’s Smiling Now? is Joy’s 5th Novel and she can’t wait to hear what readers think of it!

A detective with something to prove…

Working the homicide division in Galena, IL isn’t exactly a high-stress lifestyle, and Detective Adam Emerson wouldn’t have it any other way.

A sociopath with a dangerous obsession…

A triangle with deadly consequences…

Caught in the middle of the Emerson-Cavanaugh war, tragedy and destruction dog Claire’s every step. These two men will do just about anything to be with her–including murder. Desperate to keep Adam alive, Claire is left to unravel the truth behind the darkness that shrouds her world.

The truth is about to come to light and burn them all alive. But some secrets are better left buried.







Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a brain. This brain enjoyed the color purple, cuddling animals, soft blankets, nap time, and drinking coffee. The brain lived in a cave, on an island, and spent all of its time reading books and avoiding people.
Then one day, the brain decided it wanted to write a book.
Lightning struck and a million ideas came to life inside of the brain. So many ideas, so many voices, the brain actually exploded, split in two pieces, never to be meshed into one again.
Several lifetimes later, Allana Kephart and Lissa Lynn Thomas are the owners of each half of the broken brain. Together, they are A.L. Shea.

He’s handsome, he’s charming… he’s a liar.

He’d put me through so much—broke me until I barely recognized my reflection in the mirror. Six years he lied about being married. Six years of my life stolen—wasted from my own stupidity. But I healed—or at least I thought I had. 

I got one year… Three hundred and sixty something odd days before he showed up at my door… shot in the shoulder… begging me for help… showing me that everything I thought I knew was the farthest from reality I’d ever get.

But then I was given a choice…

Trust him and survive, or fend for myself. 

Has loving him proved to have been the biggest mistake of my life?

Synopsis

The truce between the vampires and the shifters is long over. So when the two factions stumble upon a lost fae warrior who has no idea what she is, all hell breaks loose.

Charity hasn’t had it easy. Growing up in a bad part of Chicago, left by her mother at 16, she’s a survivor. So when she gets a scholarship to a good college out in California, she thinks all her dreams have come true.

Instead she falls head first into a nightmare.

At a posh party she doesn’t belong, she gets the shock of her life: vampires and shifters are real! Magic is real. And she is anything but a mundane poor kid just trying to make it.

Warrior runs in her blood. If only she knew how to use it.

Suddenly, she is trapped between two magical super powers – a cunning elder vampire who wishes to use her for her blood ties and maybe tie her to the bed, and a sexy alpha shifter who will protect her at all costs.

Her life of surviving never could’ve prepared her for this. And if she doesn’t learn to harness the fae magic running through her blood, she’ll be imprisoned forever.

Action, humor, and romance – we’re going back to the DDVN World!

My Thoughts 💭

Devon and Charity fought like crazy but I loved them together! They always had each others back. I loved how family like the pack was…except for yasmine. I can’t wait to find out what comes next for them!

STEEL – Book 3

AMELIA

A pawn,
In his deadly game of revenge.
That’s how he sees me.

But he should look closer,
And see the strong, daring, and loyal soul of The Trinity,
Yes, that Trinity,
New York’s top cartel.

I will stop at nothing to take him down,
Make him pay,
For what he did to my sister,

Nobody screws with me,
Or with the man I love.

LEANDRO

Shrewd, loyal, and downright ruthless,
An assassin with an agenda.
A well-earned reputation.

He’s hellbent on destroying me,
But as always, he underestimated me.
With his eyes on Amelia,
I’m jolted into action.

Between bullets and bombs,
Nothing can stop me,
From saving her.
And killing him.
