Series Review: Blood & Roses Series by Callie Hart

For lovers of dark erotic romance…



Deviant (Blood & Roses #1)


I’m not proud of the things I’ve done.

The things I’ve had to do.

The things I’ve given away.

but I’d give it all over again to find her.

Even if I die trying,

I have to find Alexis.


She wants me to help her,

But I won’t.

She wants me to save her sister,

But I can’t.

She wants me to be her hero,

But I’m not a good man.

I am her damnation.

The Nysein: Release, Immortal Stain Series Book 2

The telekinetic energy Maxim could breathe over a woman’s flesh was one of the reasons so many wanted him and a repeat performance…

Kendra, the Mistress of Water, finds herself sinking within an ocean of heartbreak as Destiny lands her once again on the Isle of Serey. Nothing is going right—from her awareness to the island’s most prominent Nysein womanizer to the desire he shimmies over body. She can’t fight the pull he has on her, but she suspects he’s tipping more than smooth banter with one of her sisters. Jealousy slashes the darkest recesses of her heart, yet she’s tired of waiting for him. Either he’ll give her what she wants, or she’ll finally walk away… Maxim Korden, seneschal to King Darien, has always loved the female sex. The scent, texture, and visual stimulation of beautiful woman makes him crazy with need. However, he carries a deep secret—one impossible to believe. For nearly one hundred years, he can’t touch a woman without sickness, though one caress upon Kendra’s skin and the sweetest nirvana engulfs him. Fate has tilted a deadly trial against their brief happiness as a sinister force traps his newfound love.

Book Review: The Queen of Zombie Hearts (The White Rabbit Chronicles Book 3) By Gena Showalter


 The Queen of Zombie Hearts (The White Rabbit Chronicles Book 3) By Gena Showalter

I have a plan.

We’ll either destroy them for good, or they’ll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice “Ali” Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She’s ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It’s then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn’t the girl she thought she was. She’s connected to the woman responsible for killing—and turning—Cole’s mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima—even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.

My Review:


I’m a total fan of this series. It’s AWESOME – It Rocks – It’s thrilling – and SWOONWORTHY!! I’ve been following this series and couldn’t wait for the 3rd installment. Ali Bell is back along with the rest of the zombie slayer crew. You won’t get a fluffy romance here—it’s gritty and sexy—perfect for anyone wanting excitement wrapped up in heart pumping action. The love between Cole and Ali is wonderfully written, emotional, and sensual within the YA genre. Travel with Ali down her own rabbit hole and discover a new kind of romance that will stay with you forever!

Alice in Zombieland (The White Rabbit Chronicles Book 1)

Book 1 of The White Rabbit Chronicles


Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

Through the Zombie Glass (The White Rabbit Chronicles Book 2)

Zombies stalk the night.

Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls.

Sadly, they’ve got mine…

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend, Kat, at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole’s secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking…and if she fails at a single task, they’re all doomed.

BLOG TOUR Announcement – The Nysein: Salvation ~ Oct. 12 – 18 ~

Nysein.Salvation BookTour

CLOSED: Thank you to all who participated!! :)

 Hosted by Dreams Come True Promotions

I’m happy to announce the Blog Tour for The Nysein: Salvation, Immortal Stain Series (Book 1) is HERE!!! With the help and wonderful assistance of Dreams Come True Promotions, everything is set. A cool giveaway is mixed into the event. There are 3 ebook copies of The Nysein: Salvation up for grabs and… a $20 Amazon Gift card. Do you know the vampires on the Isle of Serey? Check them out… The Nysein: A few centuries ago, control became an issue abounding in a war like no other. The vampires and necromancers reigned sovereign in the shadows of eerie night. They prophesied a new era…a new breed of enhanced vampire no one on earth had ever seen…

A wasting disease marks the Nysein race after King Darién seeks vengeance upon his mother’s murderers. Every day he chokes on loneliness and past mistakes as another innocent victim dies without hope. His only salvation lies in a whispered curse, immersed in an ancient mating ritual. An idea so repulsive, he can’t imagine ever fulfilling…mating for life with a woman he’s never met, half human, half vampire. With one look upon the half-breed’s face, his rationality plummets.
For scholarly beauty Jenera Cole, life moves in slow motion, another strike against her…another disappointment. She is unaware of her immortal destiny until fate traps her inside an otherworldly hell, however, a stranger appears within her supernatural prison…a man with seductive eyes and an incredible power. Destiny isn’t only a word, it is the source of the Nysein magic, and Jenera must accept her fate. She must lay claim to the lost King as secrets bury them, lies unite them, and a prophecy comes true…

“Jenera.” He reached for her, but she stumbled back further from him. How did he know her name? She hadn’t told him. She trembled in fright; scared to understand. “Don’t touch me!” The King of the Nysein never begged anything for anyone in his life, but he was ready. Darién sank to his knees before her in the inky sand, offering submission, his pride even the last shred of his dignity to make her understand. “Please be calm. I would never hurt you,” he whispered, the husk of his voice carried on the sweet air. Her heart hammered in her chest as she tried to make sense of him. “Then take me home and I will give you my trust.” Fire greater than his own ability burned through him. He could give her anything, but that. “It’s no longer possible.” A dark laugh escaped her. “Impossible? I demand it.” Darién moved to his feet in an instant, defying gravity and pulled Jenera into his arms faster than she could blink, her face mere inches from his. Her jasmine scented skin provoked his senses to riot, clenching an overwhelming desire deep within him. He had her…in his arms, her lush body sweetly curved to fit every hard muscle of his. Nothing upon nothing ever felt this wonderful. “I can give you the entire world kelis—my beautiful one. I will even give my life, if you summon such a will. But, the one thing I will never do is let you go.”

Book Review – The Fixed Trilogy by Laurelin Paige



Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out–move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan. But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous–the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it. Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.
With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best–Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far–revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.
This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…

Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves.
But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets–secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits.
Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach.

My Review:


Hello New Book Boyfriend forever! :) I love you, Hudson Pierce. With as many awesome ratings as this trilogy has, I won’t bog my review down with “he said/she said” but rather the awesomeness of a fantastic journey. It’s heart wrenching, even soul gutting as Laurelin Paige takes you through Alayna Wither’s day to day life with Hudson. I laughed, I cried, I even wanted to throw my Kindle a few times, but in the end, it was worth it. My eyes soaked in every word, greedy for the next. I have a serious book hangover and I’m not inclined to chase it away anytime soon. Okay, a lie. I have to read Hudson now. :) What gift to read and I pleasure to remember. I highly recommend this series–it’s smokin’!!

Book 4 is out!



This is a full-length companion novel to the NY Times Bestselling Fixed Trilogy. It is not meant to be read as a stand-alone.

“I can easily divide my life into two parts—before her and after.”

Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he’s wanted for almost nothing. He’s never experienced love, however, and he’s seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He’s studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it.

Until he meets Alayna Withers.

Now, the games he’s played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end. Or are they just beginning?

Told from his point of view, Hudson fills the holes in his love story with Alayna Withers. His past and relationship with his long-time friend Celia is further revealed and light is shed on his actions during his courtship with Alayna.

The Nysein: Explain the Immortal Stain

vampire-teeth-vampires-2006128-223-158After the Twilight craze (myself included), I liked the idea of a magical vampire. Perhaps a little more extreme, but hey, it’s fiction, so I can go a little wild with my creative license. I chose not to go traditional in my approach, but to embellish the concept on the ‘what would happen if’scenario. Mix in some magic and voila!… a new breed.

In my novel, The Nysein: Salvation, the idea that a devilish magic user (a necromancer) wanted to enhance the existing vampires kicked off the story. Such an action was repulsive to the actual, life-breathing vampires that existed within my novel. It was a shame against their pure race of what I call the “ancients.”

Excerpt from the beginning of the Nysein: Salvation:

The Rage Lotus sat innocently upon the pristine, white pillow, its petals glistening under the cover of the full moon in an undisclosed location. A flower of such caliber only existed within the bowels of Hell, and the power it contained was beyond normal. In fact, if anyone was brazen enough to use it, a sacrifice was required in order to bring about any request in the form of…death. How the Rage Lotus was obtained, no one dared whisper or question, but only one man dared use it.

Part of the actual ceremony in my novel:

Nesta continued to chant under his breath, while the vampire couple arched their backs against the malefic magic. They groaned, their heads turning from side to side as if in deep pain. Then Nesta tilted his face up toward the fiery blue flames, thrusting his hands out to his sides, palms up. As the last of the incantation died on his lips, the blue flames balled up in the middle and shot into the Rage Lotus lying center pentagram. With an ardent hiss, white light twisted with streaks of blue slammed into the vampire couple. An inhuman growl tore out of their throats as they arched off the ground. In the blink of a second, the wind died to eerie calm, the blue flames dissipated…

Keeping the idea simple, yet evil, I allowed one human man to stain the vampire race. Though the Nysein and vampires are essentially brothers, they are vastly different. Magic plays a higher role in the story as the Nysein use their gifts and abilities to live, to war against threats, and most of all… to survive. In my novel, The Nysein: Salvation, Kendra, the Element of Water and a Nysein, uses her ability to help the queen.

Kendra moved closer to the possessed queen and held her hands above her head with the bracelet gleaming. She closed her eyes. With a mysterious incantation, she murmured under her breath and a green glow bathed her whole body in soft light. She swirled in a tornado-like spin and became…water…smooth and weightless…so tranquil and light beyond anything ever seen. The enchanted bracelet floated on the surface of her pool of magical water and then…she threw herself into Jenera, soaking the queen, slipping the bracelet over her wrist. In a startling rush, the mistress of water rematerialized next to the queen and whispered the activating phrase into her ear…

In my upcoming novel, The Nysein: Release (Book 2), Kendra and Maxim get their story. Stay tuned for more excitement from the magical vampires on the Isle of Serey.

Book Review – The Hacker Series by Meredith Wild



I kept seeing this picture appear on all my favorite books sites. Curious, I had to find out about Meredith Wild and the Hacker series. It’s wonderful! For erotic romance lovers, you’ll not want to miss the exciting journey of Erica and Blake. It’s raw and gritty–the kind of story you’ve been dying to read but never found it…until now.


Hardwired (#1) –  Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn’t prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to derail her presentation.

Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.

But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create.

My Review:  Absolutely wonderful. The author has a very beautiful and fluid writing style, a place where she reaches into your emotional bank and takes your breath away. I felt like I was there, seeing everything, experiencing it right along with the characters. I loved, loved, loved Blake. He’s sexy-hot and cocoons Erica with his determination. I love a hero that won’t give up. Bottom line: I’m hooked and can’t wait to read the next book.

Hardpressed (#2) –  In Hardpressed, the highly anticipated second book of the Hacker Series that began with Hardwired, Blake and Erica face threats that put both their love and their lives on the line.

Despite Blake Landon’s controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loves. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.

Ready to start this new chapter in her life, Erica is determined not to let anything come between them, even if that means giving Blake back some of the control he craves in and out of the bedroom.

But when demons from her past threaten their future, Erica makes a decision that could change their lives forever.

My Review: One of THE best series I’ve read in a long time. It’s scorching and beautifully written. Just when you think you have figured it out, a new surprise renders you speechless.

Hardline (#3) – Software mogul Blake Landon has met his match in headstrong Erica Hathaway. While his controlling nature and her independent spirit continue to battle, Blake has no intention of letting her out of his life again.

Erica has given Blake her trust and her love, determined that they will conquer any challenges together. But when he demands more and tests the boundaries of her commitment, she is forced to face the dark desires he’s kept hidden.

As their bonds grow tighter, their enemies close in. With Erica’s start-up in danger, Blake’s frustration grows as he tries to protect her from those who would ruin her only to get to him. Can their relationship survive when Blake’s enemies cross the line and threaten more than her livelihood?

My Review: AMAZING! Book 3 added another layer of emotional suspense, taking Erica and Blake down a path I wasn’t sure they’d recover from. I was so nervous, I read it in one day because I needed to find out what would happen next. Sexy, hot, sizzling–it’s got it all! Romance, hard decisions and a strong couple fighting for what they believe in. The Hacker series is truly an erotic romance worth reading. It stays with you long after the last page is read. I’ve since learned there are two more books coming and I say, bring it! I can’t wait for more! :)

Book Review – Connecting Strangers by Rachel Carrington

Connecting Strangers

Book 1 in the Discovering Emily series by Rachel Carrington – Coming Soon!


cover49564-medium (1)


Getting close is dangerous…

He’s too close, and I start to fidget, needing to keep my hands busy so they won’t grab hold of his shirt. Because that’s what they want to do. Draw him closer. So I can Inhale his scent. Taste his skin.

I didn’t run because I was in an abusive relationship; I ran because my soul was being crushed. I’d forgotten how to live, how to be happy. Running out of gas in a small town, I catch the eye of the local sheriff when the very last thing I want is to come under the scrutiny of the police. I left my boyfriend with blood on my hands, and I know as soon as the wound heals he’ll come looking for me.

Adam Madison draws me to him so easily I can’t even pretend to fight. And the closer we get, the more combustible we become. I’ve never experienced such passion or power. My need is as great as his, but I’m sure he’ll walk away from me once he knows my secret. No other man would stay.

I’ve had enough complications in my life. I’m not looking for more, and that’s exactly what Adam is—a sexy, magnetic complication with secrets of his own. And with my ex on the hunt, I can’t risk bringing him down with me. But he won’t leave…even when vengeance could kill us both.

I had the unique privilege of receiving an ARC – advanced reader’s copy via NetGalley for Rachel Carrington’s new release, Connecting Strangers.


The story was fast paced with intriguing suspense, including gritty romance and a sexy Sheriff. Rachel Carrington weaves a wonderful novel with Emily running for her life. Thankfully, she runs right into to a breath of fresh air… Adam. I was held captive from the first page and couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed the cast of characters, the mystery, and cool twists that will leave you guessing. The romance blossomed hot, full of steamy heat and raw sensuality. The emotional layers this book peels away—leaves you wanting more. I highly recommend!
