Waiting For Wednesday: Slay All Day by Cynthia Eden

Posted on

Release Date: October 15, 2019

What happens when a monster hunter falls for his prey?

Harrison Key has one job—hunt and destroy monsters. He’s taken out vamps, shifters, demons…it’s all in a night’s work for him. He protects the innocent and destroys the wicked. Case closed. The job doesn’t pay much and the benefits are literally hell, but a hunter is born to the work. Gifted with super strength and speed, Harrison was created to fight monsters. There is nothing else for him in this world.

Then he meets her.

She looks like innocence but makes him think of the hottest sin. When Harrison first meets Elise Aine, she’s surrounded by vamps who are only too eager to take a bite. Harrison stakes the vamps and intends to walk away from Elise, but she has other plans. She says that she’s under supernatural attack. Elise desperately needs his protection, and she’ll pay any price. One look into her dark and gorgeous eyes, and Harrison can’t walk away. He doesn’t want to walk away. He wants her.

What Harrison doesn’t know…could just kill him.

Elise isn’t human. Not by a long shot. And she’s got big plans for Harrison. Sure, the guy may think he’s a hunter, he may believe that his job is to rid the world of the wicked, but he’s dead wrong. And with her help, Harrison may just turn out to be the wickedest one of them all. Because he’s not really a hunter. He’s something far, far more interesting. And hot. Smokin’, in fact.

He just needs to let his wild side out to play…

As the queen of the fairies, Elise was born to trick and deceive, and, with way too many enemies closing in, she needs the most powerful protector imaginable at her side. Harrison is her destined mate, if he’ll just stop fighting monsters long enough to see that deep inside…he is a beast. A beast like no other. One that can blast fire and soar into the skies. A beast who can only be bound and tamed by love.

Betrayal burns deep and cuts hard.

Can the queen of the fairies show a hunter that even monsters can love? Or when he finds out the truth about her, will rage be all that Harrison knows? Either way, things are about to get red-hot. Watch out for the flames and smoke.

Author’s Note: SLAY ALL DAY is a stand-alone with action, humor, and plenty of hot times ahead. Sit down, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

Throwback Thursday: Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack #1) by Suzanne Wright

Posted on

“Love is giving someone the power to completely destroy you, and hoping that they won’t” 

“I don’t mind if you want to start ranting just as long as you understand I’ll be ignoring every word” 

“You’re all there is for me, Taryn. I’m broken baby. You know that. Before you… it was like those bits of me were just scattered all over the place. I’ve never felt whole. Not until you. You hold those pieces together. It’s not an exaggeration when I say you hold my sanity in your hands. Without you, I’d fall apart.” 

“Grace’s gaze skimmed over her, taking in the various marks of possession that decorated her flesh. “Well, short of having ‘Property of Trey Coleman’ tattooed on your forehead, he couldn’t have made it any clearer that he considered you his, could he?” 

“She’s my mate. She’s mine. No one keeps her from me. No one insults her. And no one – and I mean no one – talks to her the way you just did, understand me?” 

“You just don’t get it, do you? You have no idea how important you are to me. I need you to be okay, Taryn. I can’t be without you, you have to be here and okay or I would be able to fucking function.” 

“To be loved, adored, and worshipped like that by the person you loved in turn had to be the most amazing thing in the world.”

If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal… she’ll have to mate with him instead.

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female whose Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over.

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal…but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite.

Waiting for Wednesday: Untamed Delights (The Phoenix Pack #8) by Suzanne Wright

Posted on

Release Date: July 16th, 2019

Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.

Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.

Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.

As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.

Throwback Thursday: Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) by J.R. Ward

Posted on

“Welcome to the wonderful world of jealousy, he thought. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistable urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex. Yippee.” 

“I’m going to talk to her.” “And how’s that going to go? You’re just going to walk up to her and say, ‘Hey, I know you’ve never seen me before, but I’m your dad. Oh, and guess what? You’ve won the evolutionary lottery: You’re a vampire. Let’s go to Disneyland!” 

“Some bridges you crossed on your own, no matter who drove you to the edge” 

“You don’t know this yet. But you are Mine.”

“Man, he wasn’t going to need a stress test anytime soon. If his heart could get through a kiss from her, he could probably run a marathon. While dragging a car behind him. Sideways to the road.” 

“I want that,” he said fiercely.  “What?” “For you to be around.” Her breath caught. A tenuous hope took fire in her chest. “Really?”  He closed his glowing eyes and shook his head. “Yeah. It’s fucking stupid. It’s crazy. It’s dangerous.” “So it’ll fit right into your life script.” He laughed and looked down at her. “Yeah, pretty much.” 

“I always root for the monster.”

“Humans are threatened by anything different, and their response is to fight. They’re bullies, picking on the weak, cowering from the strong.”

“Don’t trust me. Don’t like me. I could give a shit. But don’t you ever lie to me.” 

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

MY REVIEW

This series just keeps getting better and better! Wolf Rain is the third book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity Series and I gotta tell you, I was a little worried going into this one since I haven’t had the opportunity to read book 2 yet. That being said, I am happy to report that I was worried for nothing. From the moment I picked up Wolf Rain, I was HOOKED. I couldn’t put it down and I didn’t feel lost at all. I was completely and totally lost to Memory and Alexie’s story and I couldn’t wait to see how things were going to play out.

I loved Alexie & Memory together. They both had their share of baggage and were broken. Even with that, Alexie had the biggest heart and was so protective over those he let into his life. And then we have Memory. Memory’s story has been filled with heartache. I can’t even fathom her heartbreaking past. She might seem like she needs to be handled gently, but don’t let that fool you, Memory is stronger than ever. And Alexie is just what the doctor ordered and is sure to bring the swoons. The attraction between Alexie and Memory was instant, yet the progression of their story had me hanging on each and every word.

Wolf Rain is a fantastic addition to this series and a terrific shifter romance. I love how complex this world is and the addictiveness of the plot. The world-building continues to blow my mind and there is never a dull moment. The characters are compelling and complex. The story-line is filled with amazing fantastical and paranormal aspects. And of course, you can’t forget about the romance and let me tell you, Wolf Rain has it in spades. Wolf Rain gave me absolutely everything I was looking for and was a fabulous read to spend my day getting lost in. At the end of the day, the skys the limit with this series and this world the author has created. I for one can not wait to see what this author will have in store for us next.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*
