Review @ZoeChantebooks - Protector Lion by Zoe Chant (Cedar Hill Lions #5)




Protector Lion
Cedar Hill Lions #5
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A curvy single mother in need of a protector + a hotheaded lion shifter who needs to make up for past mistakes + the little boy who brings them together = one heartwarming romance!

Natalie Nelson has spent the past two years raising her six-year-old son, Micah, alone. She’s never had anyone she can rely on to look after her – and so, when a threatening man appears on her doorstep to say he’s holding her responsible for her ex-boyfriend’s debts, she does the only thing she can think of: run. What she doesn’t expect is that her impulsive flight will carry her headlong into the arms of the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen.

Lion shifter Casey Whittaker knows he has a lot to make up for. His pride might have forgiven him for his youthful mistakes, but Casey is having a much harder time forgiving himself – and seeing himself as worthy of the happiness he knows he’ll find with a mated bond. But when Natalie arrives at his family’s ranch looking for a job, he recognizes her not only as a woman in need of his protection – but also as his mate.

But not everything is as it seems, and when the mysterious debt collectors show up in Cedar Hill demanding what they’re owed, a sinister new twist is revealed in their plans. Casey is determined to protect his mate and her cub no matter what, but will he be strong enough to save her?

Protector Lion is a sizzling hot, standalone BBW lion shifter romance, the fifth book in the Cedar Hill Lions series. No cliffhangers!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, and no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have bought this book because I loved it, and I own most of Zoe’s books!

The cover is my favorite kind with both beautiful beasts!

This is the 5th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to steamy content.  I highly recommend reading in order, so you know all of the different characters pasts and how it fits together and impacts this story.

This is Casey’s story, and my how he has grown and matured.  It means something when you screw up and own up to it and try to make it right.  Natalie is a single mom, so I can easier relate to her and her concerns.  I do wish I had her outstanding luck though.  This book had Zoe’s perfect combination or action/drama and the HEA that makes me smile.

I highly recommend to all who already love this series and to any shifter fans who loves HEAs because this book and series rocks!  I can’t wait to read my next Zoe Chant book!

Review @KateBaxterBooks - The Lost Vampire by Kate Baxter (Last True Vampire #5)




The Lost Vampire
Last True Vampire #5
by Kate Baxter

Goodreads blurb:  Soul mate--or tragic fate? 

Once one of the oldest dhampirs in existence, Saeed now faces a treacherously uncertain future as a vampire. He believes that the only thing that can restore his position within his coven and tether his lost soul is the flame-haired fae who is destined to be his mate.

Cerys Bain is a soul thief. She is feared by those who dwell in the supernatural realm--and hopelessly bound to the ruthless mage Rinieri de Rege. The raw, sensual vampire who enters her world is both a threat and an intoxicating temptation: No one has ever made Cerys feel the way Saeed does. But to claim their fate as soulmates, Saeed must first find a way to free Cerys from Rin. Is their desire worth the risk of certain destruction--and eternal doom?  


About the Author:  Kate Baxter is a die-hard romantic with a thing for Shakespeare. She lives in the great northwest where she hides away to write about all things fanged, furry, and undead.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is stunning!  Love it!

This is the 5th book in the series, and it is awesome.  It is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  It is not necessary to read in order though it probably makes everything even better if you do.

This is Saeed’s story.  If you’ve read the previous book, you know his struggles with the Collective.  He has more struggles to endure, but he is up to the challenge and has faith in his soul mate.

I really love Cerys because even though she is enslaved to Rin.  She tries to fight him in little ways.  She has more fortitude and attitude than any other because I don’t know that I would have endured what she has.

Kate Baxter always weaves a fantastic story for readers like me to get lost in.  I loved every moment and felt for the characters in their battle for their love and souls.  I really have no idea what will happen next and that makes me love it even more!

I highly recommend to all paranormal fans who love a mixed world full of excitement and adventure that you can’t guess where it will go next!  This world has it all vampires, fae, shifters, mages, berserkers, and more!

Review @Violet__Vaughn - Called by the Vampire: Part 6 by V. Vaughn




Called by the Vampire
Part #6
by V. Vaughn

Goodreads blurb:  When Sebastian brings Maggie’s mother to the mansion, Maggie worries that she won’t be able to hide her medical issues from her Mom.

Lyndsey meets her long-lost father and experiences the luxuries of her new role as vampire royalty on his island kingdom. But being Princess Lyndsey O’Kelly isn’t just a life of glamour and privilege. It also comes with responsibilities Lyndsey doesn’t want but can’t ignore.  


About the Author:  V. Vaughn is the pen name for Violet Vaughn, a USA Today Bestselling author. Violet lives in New Hampshire and spends almost every day walking through the woods. She may have seen a bear once or twice....

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I will be buying this, but I’m waiting to get the whole serial together!

The cover matches well with the series!

This is the 6th installment in this serial series.  For those who do not know what a serial is, it is one book split up into installments which means the author can do each part more quickly than the 1 book a year.  The advantage is that you do not have to wait as long to read something from an author you love; the disadvantage is that each part ending is very cliff hangery and bothers some readers.  This also means you must read each part to understand what is happening in the series.  This series is for adults only.

This part had me crying for Maggie.  Oh, what a tangled web, Maggie is weaving.  She must keep the brothers’ secrets, and she has to hide her secret from everyone.  I was pulled into this part, and it didn’t let go.  When it ended, I wanted to scream because I want more!!  I don’t mind serials, but this one is killing me.  I have to wait to see what happens.

Lyndsey definitely has the better deal in this part.  I have no idea what will happen as she learns her role as vampire royalty.  Will she pull it off?  I can’t wait for find out.

This is really getting good!  I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I highly recommend this emotional part to any who have started that serial and loved it or to any vampire fans of serial series!!!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - The Dragon Prince's Baby Bargain by Zoe Chant (A Howls Romance)




The Dragon Prince's Baby Bargain:
Howls Romance
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  This dragon will set your heart on fire!

He's a dragon prince promised in an arranged marriage to a princess who's just disappeared.

She's a lonely virgin on vacation who just happens to look exactly like the missing princess.

Has he got an offer for her...


Prince Victor can't inherit the crown until he fathers a child on a woman of royal blood. For the sake of his kingdom, he agrees to an arranged marriage to a princess... who up and vanishes the day before the wedding.

Debbie Jameson, a virgin 7-11 clerk from Tennessee, was thrilled to win an all-expenses paid vacation abroad. But much bigger thrills are in store for her when the alpha dragon shifter Victor sweeps her off her feet with an offer she can't refuse: impersonate the missing princess, marry him, and have his baby!

It's a fairytale romance... until someone who definitely isn't a noble knight tries to slay the dragon's mate. Can Victor protect his beloved Debbie from mysterious assassins? And what happens if the real princess returns?

A wild ride full of romance, action, and plenty of humor, The Dragon Prince's Baby Bargain is a must-read for fans of Celia Kyle and Terry Bolryder.

Contains steamy scenes between a lonely woman who wants a family and a sexy dragon shifter who wants to make her his queen.

The cover is not the usual style for Zoe’s book!  It is okay, but I prefer her usual :)

This is a dragon shifter book, and it does have ties to Prince Lucas from Protection, Inc.  I believe this is not part of a series though.  This is about 115 pages long, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content. 

As Zoe Chant always does, she has a perfect mix of intrigue, betrayal, and love.  I love her HEA style, and I have enjoyed every story I’ve read of hers.  I own most of her books.

This story is about Prince Victor who has an arranged marriage.  Things happen, and he needs to find a stand-in.  Debbie is everything he hoped for and his mate, but she is not royalty.  They have quite the journey, and you won’t believe what happens until you read it!  I loved this story!

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who likes HEAs that make great stories!  I can’t wait to read the next one to see where it take me!

Review @ChrstineWarren - Hard Breaker by Christine Warren (Gargoyles #6)






Hard Breaker
Gargoyles #6
by Christine Warren

Goodreads blurb:  From New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren comes the sixth book in her red-hot romance series in which even the most beastly gargoyle is able to win the heart of a beautiful human woman.

Ivy Beckett has a special gift. She can hear voices, feel events, and receive messages from great distances. Which is also a curse. The moment her family is killed by the servants of the Darkness, she knows it. And the only way to fight these evil forces is to align her powers with a Guardian. A legendary warrior of stone who strikes fear in her heart―and fire in her soul…

Baen is a fierce and powerful gargoyle who has sworn to protect all humans from the Darkness. But when this mighty winged warrior swoops down to rescue Ivy from the jaws of death, he is drawn into a battle that is more dangerous―and more intimate―than he ever bargained for. The beautiful, gifted Ivy touches something deep within him, an all-consuming passion that puts both their lives at risk. Can he conquer the armies of evil itself . . . without losing the woman he loves?


About the Author:  Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

She enjoys hearing from readers and can be reached via email sent to Christine@christinewarren.net or by postal mail to Christine Warren, PO Box 871900, Vancouver, WA 98687-1900.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is great and goes with the rest of the series!

This is the 6th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and violence.  I highly recommend reading all the books in order because this is the culmination of the series, and everything has led up to this book.

Wow!  So many things I didn’t see coming, and it was a fantastic adventure.  Ivy and Baen as well as some others are new to the scene in this book, and they are all kicking Darkness’ butt.  This whole book rocked like a new Guardian waking up!  I don’t want to give anything away, but you will not want to put this book down.  I love all the action, the love, and the snarky banter between the characters.  This is a great book.

Christine told a fantastic story that you feel you are going through.  Christine is one of my favorite authors, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

I highly recommend to any paranormal romance fans who loves gargoyles, romance, good vs evil battles, and so much more!

Review @valeromance - Ancient Magic by Catherine Vale (Worlds of Magic #2)




Ancient Magic
Worlds of Magic #2
by Catherine Vale

Goodreads blurb:  If you think ruthless Queens and sleepless nights in a dungeon were bad, wait until Alicia and Grayson enter the Hallowed Forest…

Despite barely surviving Wonderland, a world filled with merciless enemies and coldblooded killers, Alicia still refuses to stop portal jumping until she uncovers the truth about her parents. Even if it costs her everything.

With her loyal dragon shifter by her side, Alicia and Grayson set off on their next adventure into a world of vicious magic and unimaginable darkness. Armed with only her magic and his breath of fire, it’ll take everything they’ve got to survive.

Ancient Magic is the second book in the bestselling Worlds of Magic Series. If you enjoy stories filled with enchanting creatures, otherworldly monsters, shifters of all kinds, and scorching hot romance in a fantasy setting, this is the series for you. Don’t read this one if you spook easily. ;)


About the Author:  Catherine Vale has been writing fiction for as long as she can remember, but it wasn’t until she wrote her very first paranormal romance story that she found herself hooked on the raw, edgy love affair of shifters, vampires and other dominant alpha males and the captivating women that love them.

Catherine Vale writes both contemporary and paranormal romance for readers who are willing to take a walk on the wild side of love.  Her stories always include powerful alpha males, smart and sassy heroines and a happily-ever-after (even if she often put her characters through hell to get there!)

My Thoughts – 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, (but I have already bought my own copy) but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!!

The cover is beautiful and fits in with the other cover well!

This is the 2nd book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy scenes.  While it is not mandatory to read in order, I highly recommend it because you will understand Alicia and Grayson more and references to the past!

Alicia and Grayson’s relationship heats up!  Again, they team up to save another world.  I loved all the action, but you should be aware that there are sensitive issues involving children being kidnapped and abused.  I can’t wait to see where Alicia and Grayson’s relationship goes and if the m word will be involved.  Also, will Alicia find her parents, and what world will they visit next?

I recommend another great book by Catherine Vale to any paranormal fan who loves shifters and magic!
