Cover Reveal

Drakon Unchained
Blood of the Drakon #5

By N.J. Walters

About the Book:  Victoria Marshall is living a lie. She works for a member of the Knights of the Dragon, a secret society that traps and uses dragons for their own gain. As a child, she made an unlikely friend—a drakon. He went missing, and she’s spent the past twenty years searching for him. The only thing distracting her from her mission is Luther Henderson, her boss’s new head of security.

Luther is also living a lie. One, if discovered, could lead to a fate worse than death. He’s attracted to Victoria, but can’t fully trust her, doesn’t know if she’s truly innocent or a true member of the Knights. It’s not only his life at stake, but those of the people he loves.

As they’re thrust deeper into the dangerous dealings of the Knights, they each have to share their secrets in order to survive.



About the Author:  Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same.

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

Audiobook Review @mollyharperauth - How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper (Naked Werewolf #1)





How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf 
Naked Werewolf #1
by Molly Harper

Goodreads blurb:  Northern Exposure

Even in Grundy, Alaska, it's unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo's ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.

For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it's love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he's worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he's not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . . 


About the Author:  My mother remembers an 8-year-old me setting up my “writing office” in our living room by putting her old manual typewriter on the couch next to a toy phone. And I (very slowly) pecked out the story of my third-grade class taking a trip around the world and losing a kid in each city.

I had a dark sense of humor, even then.

In high school, when other girls my age were writing poems about dying unicorns and bleeding roses, I was writing essays about having political arguments with my dad at the dinner table. (Whoever made the other person laugh at their own political party won the argument.) I knew I wanted to write when I grew up, but I also knew there was very little chance I could make a living writing books, so I went for the next best thing – newspaper writing.

I majored in print journalism at Western Kentucky University and used my shiny new degree to get a job at my hometown newspaper. I married my high school sweetheart, David, a local police officer. And for six years, I wrote about school board meetings, quilt shows, a man “losing” the fully grown bear he kept as a pet in his basement, and a guy who faked his death by shark attack in Florida and ended up tossing pies at a local pizzeria.

I loved my job at the paper. I loved meeting new people every day and never knowing where I would end up. But somehow, the ever-shifting schedules of a police officer and a reporter did not equal "family friendly." One of us needed to take a normal job for the sake of our young daughter. I took a secretarial position at a local church office, which left me with dependably free evenings for the first time in my adult life. David was working the night shift that summer and I was losing.my.mind. We were living in "The Apartment of Lost Souls" while building our new home. This was the place where appliances and small electronics went to die. Every night I would tuck our snoozing child into bed and wait for the washing machine to start smoking or the computer to suddenly flash the "blue screen of death." Then there was the plague of frogs in the bathroom that put our daughter of potty-training for about six months.

Normally, when things get tough, I can take solace in reading. But I surveyed my packing box of favorite books with the apathetic air of someone who stands in front of the open refrigerator for 10 minutes and can't find anything. Nothing sounded good. So I just sat down and started writing something I would want to read.

Being a huge fan of vampire movies and TV shows, I wondered, what would be the most humiliating way possible to be turned into a vampire- a story that a vampire would be embarrassed to share with their vampire buddies over a nice glass of Type O. Well, first, you'd have to make the protaganist a bit of an accidental loser. She's single, almost 30, and a librarian working in the small Kentucky town where she grew up. This "triple whammy of worry" has made her a permanent fixture on her Mama's prayer list. And despite the fact that's pretty good at her job, she just got canned so her boss could replace her with someone who occasionally starts workplace fires. She drowns her sorrows at the local faux nostalgia-themed sports bar and during the commute home, she's mistaken for a deer and then shot by a drunk hunter. And then she wakes up as a vampire.

And thus, Jane Jameson and the wacky denizens of Half-Moon Hollow were born.

It took me almost a year to complete and edit a draft of the book, which I planned as the first in a three-book series. I spent three months using agentquery.com to ruthlessly stalk potential literary agents. (There were a lot of lists involved, I don't want to re-live it.) I was gently rejected by at least half of them. I corresponded with some very nice, very patient people, but ultimately signed with the fabulous Stephany Evans of Fine Print Literary Management. Stephany was willing to take to the time to give me advice on how to imp.

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

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this audiobook because I liked the narrator and Molly Harper’s humor in her books.  I got this whole series in audiobook.

This is the 1st book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  I really love audiobooks for when you want a book, but don’t want to read.

I love the humor and sarcasm that Molly Harper puts into her stories.  The narrator Amanda does a fantastic job bringing out that humor, and she does a great job with different voices for each character.  Mo runs away to Alaska to get away from her family which is humorous.  I find that she is amazingly brave because I don’t know that I could leave everything I know to head to Alaska.  She keeps ending up in interesting situations along the way.  Cooper is interesting and conflicted.  He was hard to get a read on, but there was something endearing about him though he doesn’t have the confidence in himself he should.  The story was awesome, and I couldn’t stop listening.  I hope they are both show up in the next book.

I highly recommend this book in any form to shifter fans who love humor and sarcasm mixed with adventure.  Audiobooks are like TV, but you make your own picture in your head like when you read but less eye straining.

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 matches with the rest of the series perfectly!

This is the 4th book in the series!  It is for adults only due to the romantic steamy scenes!  I highly recommend reading this series in order because you get the know all the characters, the world, and the storyline much better, and it is so much more together than in disjointed pieces.  Please be aware this book does have a woman being held prisoner if you are sensitive.

This is Braeden’s story.  He is the Fire Dragon that the element has claimed as master.  He has more than redeemed himself for his past naivety and is amazing in his own right.  He is working on his mission set forth by the Chimera when he stumbles upon his mate who is a prisoner.  They have a rocky start because Alyx doesn’t trust him, but I don’t blame her.  They have an adventure together where they find love.  Alyx is fierce, and I love her strength.  This book was action-packed from the start, and it was a page-turner that I couldn’t put down.  Zoe Chant is amazing at getting the perfect mix of romance, action, treachery, and more.  I always know I will enjoy her books, so they are my go to if I hit a rut.

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who loves HEA ending because Zoe rocks at them!  I can’t wait for more books especially in this series for a certain mysterious Griffin shifter!

***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 bought this book and can’t wait for more!

This is the first book in a new series, and this author is new to me.  This is a quick read at only 45 pages long.  Be aware that this book does touch on subjects of kidnapping, torture, and abuse.

This book starts with immediate action where Zora is being chased after escaping.  Colin is a sweetheart who is very patient and understanding with Zora.  Clay is an amazing Alpha, and I loved how he took care of everyone.  This book had me in tears several times.  I was pulled into their situation, and I want to know more about them and see them get their happily ever after.  I can’t wait for more of this series!

I highly recommend to shifter fans who like to see the good guys win and an emotional rollercoaster!

Review @SableSylvan - Little Red Riding Bulls by Sable Sylvan (Fated Mate Speed Date #5)





Little Red
Riding Bulls
 Fated Mate Speed Date #5
by Sable Sylvan

Goodreads blurb:  Kindergarten teacher Ruby Ellis knows how to wrangle kids and bulls, but can she wrangle her own feelings and the emerging ones she has for the three bull shifters that have introduced themselves into her life? And after attending a round of Fated Mate Speed Date, is Little Red going to start 'riding' bulls?
Brian Simpson. Cowboy. Scott Carr. Biker boy. James Hart. Bad boy. Three bulls, forming one menage, looking for the woman of their dreams, while working at the dude ranch outside Fallowedirt, Texas. Together, they're an unstoppable force of nature, looking for their fated mate, the woman to complete their menage. She has to be curvy, a total BBW. Someone who puts the 'big' in 'big, beautiful woman'. She needs to be daring. More than a little sassy. They find her, but there's only one problem. She's not looking for love.
The three shifters have something Ruby needs: their bulls. When the rodeo's stock contractor pulls their bulls out of the rodeo, Ruby's left with nothing to ride. She has to make a deal with the werebulls. Three practice sessions. Three dinners. The werebulls assure Ruby they're bull shifters, not bullsh*tters. Can their budding friendship survive three vicious werewolves, four bulls shifting in a china shop, and the Fallowedirt Rodeo's end of the season showcase?

Love fairy tales and fated mates? Can't get enough of speedy reads and speed dates? Into sassy BBWs learning to love and the hot-blooded wild shifter heroes begging to be tamed? Not afraid of a good-old-fashioned happy ending (no cliffhangers allowed) for a three-on-one menage a trois-plus-one? And most importantly, do you think that grandmas and pies can save the frikkin' world?

Then check out "Little Red Riding Bulls", and look for the rest of the books in the "Fated Mate Speed Date" series on Amazon, available via the Kindle Unlimited program! This series has elements of romantic comedy, Western romance, and of course, shifter-focused paranormal romances between curvy BBWs and a menagerie of different alpha male shifters.


About the Author:  The only thing I love more than reading hot paranormal romances is writing down my fantasies and sharing them with readers like you. My heroes are strong alpha male bear shifters who can be grizzly and gruff at times...but when it comes to their fated mates, they're absolute teddy bears. My curvy heroines are strong, sassy women, which is why the werebear men who love them will do anything for their love.

All my books are $0.99, at least full length novella length, feature an HEA, and are exclusively available on Amazon.com! They are all FREE via Kindle Unlimited!

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 no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!! And I have bought my own copy as I do most of Sable’s books!

The cover is eye catching!

This is the 5th book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content with this ménage group with one female and three males.  It is not necessary to read these books in order.

This book starts differently because the men know they are a group, and Ruby knows from the start that they are looking to complete their group looking for their shared fated mate.  Things go more smoothly at the beginning, but then she flies off the handle getting mad where I don’t think she should which leads to trouble.  It was like watching a train wreck.  Things get reeled back in, and of course ends with an HEA ending.  Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

I recommend to shifters who like ménage stories with HEA endings for the group.
