Book 4 — Trusted Dragon’s Betrayal

While the first three books chronicle Jaxon and Amari’s journey about finding each other, Trusted Dragon’s Betrayal, the next in the series, will continue where Alpha Dragon Awakes left off by delving into the unanswered questions the first books didn’t answer.

Evil continues to spread Outside the Veil as loyalties are challenged, beliefs tested, and lives threatened. Who will fall and who will rise? And can the Hawke and Blackthorn nests weather the storm brewing on the horizon?

Trusted Dragon’s Betrayal has a tentative end of 2019 release date.

Part two in the exciting epic fantasy romance serial trilogy, Rogue Dragon Rising.

As the day of her awakening nears, Amari Hawke struggles to control the beast inside her. Basking in the energy of the approaching Trinity moon, her animal’s strength has increased to the point it can control Amari’s mind and body. Fearing she is about to slip into madness, Amari is forced into a tough choice.

In a desperate attempt to save Amari and her beast, Jaxon Blackthorn encourages his cadre, the men in his trusted circle, to establish mental links with her, but when his plans fail and Amari’s animal exerts control, he must fight for the beautiful woman who is lost to her beast.

Together, can Amari and Jaxon’s developing bond for each other overcome the urges driving Amari’s animal as they also thwart an unseen enemy vying to keep them apart?

 

Review — Reaper by Lindsey Winsemius

I enjoyed this one! I didn’t know what to expect, but Reaper was a great surprise! The world‐building was intriguing and complemented the storyline. Aerina and Marcus were well defined and had nice chemistry. All in all, Reaper turned out to be a nice escape read with a strong romance that kept me turning the pages.

Divergent Bloodline by TJ Shaw

Write What You Know

Click on image to read excerpt

They say to write what you know. I don’t know who “they” are, but the advice seems sound. Since I’ve been a felony crimes prosecutor, worked the road as a police officer, and now write policy and procedure for the same police department, I decided to combine some of my passions into what is now Divergent Bloodline.

Cops are a rare breed. They witness not only the good people do for each other, but also respond to volatile, emotional situations often resulting in heartbreak. The stress officers work under on a daily basis is incredible. They form strong bonds with fellow cops to survive the mental and physical demands placed upon them. Your partner is more than a friend; your partner protects your back when you enter the building with guns drawn.

Although Divergent Bloodline is a work of fiction and focuses on the romance between a homicide suspect (who happens to be a vampire) and the detective assigned to the case, I tried to capture the special relationship officers share with each other. I hope you enjoy Divergent Bloodline as much as I loved writing it.

While tracking down a killer, clues lead homicide detective, Viviane Taylor to suspect, Julian DeMatteo. From the get‐go, DeMatteo unsettles and irritates her. He is a force she has never encountered, someone who excites her even though he is forbidden. Her instincts warn that he’s hiding something and she is determined to uncover those secrets.

As king of the vampires, Julian DeMatteo protects the immortal clans. So, when the beautiful, bullheaded cop embroils herself within his world, he must choose between the woman who reminds him of the humanity he has lost or his loyalty to his people.

As confusing emotions awaken inside her, Viviane can either accept her fate as the one chosen to save the immortal race or lose her soul to darkness. With Julian’s help, she fights an evil that would rip her apart in order to forge a new future with the homicide suspect who has stolen her heart.

Excerpt

Don’t push me away, Viviane,” he rasped in a hoarse gravel of sound. Except for the enticing tremor in her bottom lip, she stood like a statue, the curl of her eyelashes hiding her inquisitive, emerald eyes. Cupping her chin, he lifted her face and dropped his forehead onto hers.

Closing his eyes, his other senses sharpened on the woman quivering against him. Air whispered in and out of her lungs in ragged gasps. The soft brush of her hair teased his skin. The catch in her throat when his hand slid to the small of her back encouraged his slow acquisition of her.

He understood her wish to maintain a professional distance, but her body betrayed her as she leaned into him. With utmost care, his mouth grazed down her face, tasting the lush satin of her skin. Her breath caught. He stilled her halfhearted attempt to step away by pinning her at his side. Flattening his hand against her jaw to keep her from turning, his lips skirted across her cheek, angling toward her mouth. Her pulse skipped, and he smiled an instant before his lips touched hers. In an exquisite, painful burst, his heart exploded and light cascaded into the darkest corners of his soul.

No,” she gasped, planting her hands on his chest, but his desire to claim her was too strong. He slammed her against the wall with his body and kissed her with a roughness that required no less than total submission.

Focused. Strong. True.

 

Review — Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

4.5 Stars!

I don’t read a lot of YA, but the blurb intrigued me so I decided to give OBSIDIAN a try. Turns out, I’m really glad I did. I pretty much fell in love with Katy while I have a love/hate … mostly love … relationship with Daemon. Great world‐building and witty dialog kept me reading way past my bedtime. The developing romance between our young heroes is sweet, yet not without challenges. Of course, I must read the second book, ONYX, to see what’s in store for these two. Now, onward with ONYX …

Review — Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost

I do believe Leila and Vlad are one of my favorite PNR couples. I just love them! And what’s not to love? Leila is a kickass newly turned vamp who loves to stick her hand in electrical outlets and Vlad is Dracula himself! While the story kept me engaged to the point I had a hard time putting it down, the final pages where Vlad tells Leila his “big” secret, I enjoyed the most. After everything Vlad the Impaler has done throughout his long life and he’s most ashamed of what he told her at the end. Sooo, damn funny!

To my immense relief, I’m super happy Ms. Frost decided not to end the series with BOUND by FLAMES and I’m looking forward to the next one.

What a great read!

Focused. Strong. True.
