Her history holds the key, not only to her future, but to the future of the darkest kingdom in existence.

Thrust into the middle of a rivalry between two brothers for the Unseelie throne, she must decide who to trust, and who not to. However, knowing who to trust has never been more difficult when one brother wants her heart, the other, her blood.

She holds the key to the creation of the ultimate army. Threatened at every turn, she must find the truth before she loses her heart, and her life. Can she see past the lies and deception to stay alive, or will she fall victim to an ancient feud?

Summer My Review

I am loving this world. You enter with a skeleton key. The way you obtain said key is varied. One thing appears to be certain you must accept and use it willingly. In this story two brothers Aurelian and Nolan are vying for the throne of the Unseelie Court. However in order to prove themselves worthy they feel they need an Army. The type of Army is the difference between the two brothers. In order to create the army they need the cooperation of a halfling. Since most if not all halflings live in the human realm they would first need the key and then locate her.

Aurelian is ahead in this game he has the key and knows where to to find her.

Evvie is the halfling and she is drawn into this game. Scared confused and glad to see Ian, she is slowly informed of where she is and why. Unfortunately for her no one and I mean no one is being completely honest with her. Here is one of my favorites scenes where Nolan sort of tells her the truth.
“H— he told me that I was the key. That I had to choose between you and him. That my decision would decide who would be the next King.” Evvie dropped her eyes as embarrassment continued to flood her cheeks. Nolan was handsome, but in a different way than Aurelian, he was also nice… maybe nicer. She was glad she hadn’t made a hasty decision.  

It’s always better to take your time and weigh the odds, right? Especially if they were going to affect my future… but how could anything in the fae world affect me?

She frowned. They would let her go home after she’d made the decision… wouldn’t they?

Nolan stepped closer, his fingers trailing along her neck and over her shoulder.  

“That is all he told you? I’m surprised he wasn’t more forthcoming about what your decision would cost you.”

“Cost me? What do you mean? He just said that I had to decide and that it would affect me… he didn’t say it would cost me anything.” Her gaze shot up to meet his. Nolan was too close for her comfort, becoming almost predatory. She turned from him to face the window again.

“You will have to decide— that much is true— but he failed to tell you about the army.” His voice trailed off on the last word.

“Army?” She echoed.

“Yes, you are the key to the creation of the most powerful army. Whichever you decide will cost something from you.”

She shuddered, “What will it cost me?”  

A cold sweat broke out on her forehead.

“One of us needs your blood and the other,” his hand slipped up her arm and rested above her heart. “The other requires your heart.”
Army Of The Winter Court (Skeleton Key) (pp. 114-115). Sapphire Press. Kindle Edition.

As the story progressed I found myself holding my breath hoping she chooses wisely. Only to be surprised by a stunning turn of events.

5 contented Purrs for Ali!

Ava Green has made a name for herself in the real estate world by reconditioning old, historical homes with her partner and friend Jeff. But her newest project, a three-story Victorian in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, promises to be her biggest moneymaker yet. And one she’s undertaking on her own. During her first walk-through of the house, however, she discovers a locked door, and a skeleton key that seems to appear out of nowhere. Unlocking the door, she is transported to a mystical world of fae and mythickal creatures and meets the King of the Morna. The sovereign of the Dark Elves.

King Finn Sylcan has searched for the one who can bring the magick back to his world, Edra, for eons. An old prophecy told of a female of both Dark and Light elven descent, a hybrid both Calim and Morna. It is said she is the only one who can repair the damage the war between the Dark and Light kingdoms caused. But after searching for so long, Finn never dreamed that she’d just show up outside his palace walls. Or that she’d be his mate.

The Skeleton Key Series is a multi-author series, Lia’s book is the beginning and introduces us to this world. Learn more here Skeleton Key Series Group.

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Right off the bat I love this world. It didn’t take long to find the key to enter this realm and open the door. I just don’t think I would have been as calm as Ava if my life turned to crap as quickly as hers did. I totally understand why she just wanted to get away after all that. She just had no idea how far she will really get away.

King Finn is the first person she meets on the other side. He is both surprised and shocked to see her. She is the one he has been looking for, the hybrid that the prophesy foretold. Now he has to convince her that she belongs in this world with him.

Ava’s parents had apparently kept a lot of things secret from her. The biggest one they were elves, her father a light prince and her mother a dark princess. Now she is in their realm and has to somehow save it and bring back the magic.

Finn gets his powers from the light and according to him, her magic is both dark and light, so she should be able to draw on either. This is a favorite scene, after an encounter with Finn’s Uncle Quinn who wants his throne.

Kellam spoke from the window. “She’s a Fire Elf.”

Finn studied her for a long moment. “No, I think she’s purely elemental. At least, that would make more sense because she is both Morna and Calim.”

“I still don’t want to believe it, but I can’t explain what happened out there.” She wrapped her arms around her waist, refusing to fall part. Not again. She’d done that once, when her parents died. And she’d vowed to be stronger.

“Come sit. Please.” Finn patted the couch cushion beside him.

With a sigh, she sat. “Why didn’t I have any of these powers before? And what triggered them now?”

“Simply being in this world could have triggered your magick. Like I said before, we are almost powerless in the human realm.” Finn caressed her cheek.

“You burned Quinn, wounded him.” Kellam glanced at her, one side of his mouth lifting in an approving smile.

Ava glanced from Kellam to Finn. “So my parents really were the elf couple that started the war.”

“Yes. I know it more now than ever.” Finn framed her face and pressed his lips to hers.

Desire flooded her in a hot wave. But too soon, he pulled away. “And only my fated mate could share her power with me.”

Her heart slammed to her feet. His fated mate? As in bride. She shook her head. “I don’t think—”

He placed a finger over her lips, stopping her denial. “I will not push you. The choice is yours. But you should know that I’m willing to do anything to make you mine, including seducing you.”
RoyalEnchantment LiaDavis-ARC (Kindle Locations 360-373).

This is a fast paced read, with lots of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. Nothing like trying to get to know someone while others are trying to destroy you both.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

When Alanna’s son Colt gets shot and ends up in the hospital where no wolf should ever be. His doctor is Bastian and she finds herself in a position she never expected. She couldn’t wipe his memory as she did with the others in the emergency room, so she put him to sleep and took him home. This is part of the conversation after he wakes and the one with Drew.

He dropped his shoulders. “I don’t understand the feelings you rise in me. I want to be angry with you, shake the truth out of you. Yet, I can’t bring myself to do it. Am I crazy? Maybe.”
“Promise me you won’t speak of this to anyone, and I’ll take you home in the morning.” Her Wolf paced and whimpered at the same time. Yeah, Alanna didn’t want him to leave either. But what kind of life could she offer him— even if he could accept her true nature? The heartache of a rejection would be too much for her to bare. The only option was to let him go and make sure he kept his promise.

“Yes, I promise.”

She sagged in relief. “I’m going to check on Cody and make a phone call.”

Hoping he would take the hint she wanted privacy, she made her way to Cody’s room and closed the door before pulling out her cell.

Drew answered on the first ring. “How’s Cody?”

Alanna glanced at her son and some of her tension eased. “He’s doing better.” She paused, searching for the words. “Bastian doesn’t know about us. He thinks I’m a witch.” “You let him believe that?” “Yes. He’s grandmother was one. To him it makes sense, I guess.” His heavy sigh sent a shiver down her spine. If she hurt lying to her mate, it was ten times worse lying to her Alpha. “I think he’s my mate.”

Silence filtered through the cell phone connection, soaring her stomach. She sat next to Cody and racked her fingers through his fur. “Drew, I’m sorry. I messed up, but I freaked… I….”

He let out a low growl. “The human is your responsibility. Mate or no mate. Are we clear?”

“Yes.”

“Get some rest, Alanna. Keep me posted on how Cody is doing.”

“I will.” She ended the call and studied Cody, hoping he’d wake soon and be able to tell her who shot him. All the while figuring out what she would do able Bastian. One thing was for sure, she couldn’t ignore the urge to mate. She had to know one way or another. Even if it meant living the rest of her life with a broken heart if he rejected her.
Tempting the Wolf (Black Hills Wolves Book 13) (Kindle Location 281-299). Decadent Publishing.

More than immediately meets the eye here. Bastian is in danger and so is Alanna because of the identity of Cody’s shooter.

A quick satisfying read, with some steamy sex and fur flying fights.

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy 

Aspiring author, Nate Wilson wants some space from his overbearing family and a job he doesn’t like. A week on the Oregon coast sounds like paradise and just what he needs to get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately, his plans are derailed when a storm moves in and a ghostly figure flashes in his headlights, sending him skidding off the road and into a tree. Lucky for him, he ends up in front of a Bed and Breakfast, and the beautiful owner may do more to spur his creativity than any beach could.

Hesitant witch and inn owner, Haylee Clark is cursed. Well, not her exactly—at least not yet—but all of the women in her family have suffered the same fate. They fell in love, only to have that passion turn sour and their husbands die tragically, leaving them brokenhearted. So far, Haylee has done well to avoid that destiny, but when the captivating Nate Wilson crashes into her life, he awakens something within her that she never thought to feel.

When the pair stumbles upon a hidden room where Haylee’s grandmother used to conduct her rituals, they unknowingly unleash a dark entity hell-bent on destruction, and discover that a family heirloom is the source of the Clark family curse. Despite the spell, they can’t deny their attraction, and give in to the magic between them. But the closer Haylee and Nate get, the more the curse tries to tear them apart. If they don’t find a way to defeat the evil, they may lose more than their hearts.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Once again Lia perks up the interest in the first pages. A cloaked figure in white, a gargoyle waking, a cemetery and a bed and breakfast. Add in a car accident and we have our recipe for danger and excitement.

Hitting a tree was not how Nate wanted to start his vacation, but being it was close to a bed and breakfast it wasn’t so bad. Well other than the storm that was raging.

Haylee the proprietor of the quaint establishment, was welcoming in spite of her staff being off for the weekend. Although she may have been a bit short when explaining no phone or internet. I think that snippiness was more due to the attraction she was feeling than anything else.

Neither Haylee or Nate know what to make of Cam, showing up with no luggage in the middle of the storm. He’s here one minute then gone the next.

A spooky basement, with a somewhat hidden room discovered on a tour of the house. Something else is happening beyond the curse she knows about.  This is a favorite scene as they try to piece together what Haylee’s grandmother had done.

“Grams had worked in the ritual room for days. She’d forbidden me from entering the basement. When she finally came out, the stone was gone and she told me that everything would be fine now.” Haylee hugged her waist as a single tear rolled down her cheek. “The next morning, I found her dead in her bed. She’d passed in her sleep.”

Instantly, Nate rushed around the desk and wrapped his arms around her, drawing her into his chest. “I believe it’s the stone that’s cursed, not your family.”

She lifted her head and locked gazes with him, her eyes narrowing. “The stone? Why the stone?”

“I’m not sure. But I think we need to find out.” The first thing Nate would do was question the old man. After all, it was he who’d planted the idea in his head. “What do you know about it?”

“Grams found it when she and Papa were on vacation at the coast. The Sunstone can aid in healing, protection, and success. Plus, it’s associated with the element fire, which was Grams’ favorite element to work with.”

Haylee averted her gaze and moved toward the door, but not before he saw the tears fill her eyes.

“Is it possible that if the stone were cursed, it would react negatively?”

Stopping in the doorway, she turned to him. “Yes, that would, in many cases, be the point of a curse.” She rushed out the room as if realizing something.

He followed her with quick steps, stopping when she entered her bedroom. “What is it?” “It’s just a thought, but I think Grams was trying the break the curse. When she was unable to, she tried to contain the negative energy.” She zipped from her dresser to the nightstands on either side of her bed, opening drawers.

Confused, he watched her go to the closet and dig around on the floor. “I’m not following.”

“If it is the stone that’s cursed, then the fire within the stone is gone. The attraction and sexual energy were altered in some way. That is the only thing that makes senses.” She pulled out a shoebox and opened it. A moment later, she withdrew a black cloth. After removing the Sunstone from around her neck, she wrapped it in the cloth and placed it inside the box.

“Without the fire, the passion, a couple will fall out of love.”
SunstonesFire LiaDavis-eBook (Kindle Locations 411-429). Kindle Edition.

Nate and Haylee need to find a way to undo the curse or neither of them will ever have a happily ever after. Then there is Cam and his secrets.

I thoroughly enjoyable read. Lots of suspense and intrigue combined with a love story that gets the heart pounding and the pulse racing.

I can’t wait for the next installment in this series.

Announcing a New Series: Cursed in Stone – Five Novellas from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne


CIS websiteHeader

It is my great pleasure to introduce
Cursed in Stone, a Gothic Romance series from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne
with After Glows Publishing

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy

Constantine De La Fontaine fought in the Third Crusade, certain he was on the side of the righteous. After being wounded in battle, he’s tended to by the beautiful and mysterious Amara, a woman who’s hiding a dangerous secret. She’s the caliph’s daughter, and he’s promised her hand in marriage to the demon who’s made him powerful. Con and Amara’s love is white hot, but forbidden. When the demon finds out about their tryst, he lashes out in a jealous rage, cursing both to live out eternity in their own personal hells.

For centuries, Con lives as a gargoyle, cursed in stone and destined to watch others find love, with no knowledge of Amara’s fate. Able to take human form only during the three nights of the full moon, he wanders the streets of the cities the curse transports him to, lost and broken hearted. Then, a whisper on the wind and a magical pull to a gemstone gives him new hope for breaking his curse and finding out what’s happened to his lost love. A cloaked figure, an ancient tome, and more gemstones slowly begin to help him unravel the mystery of his curse—and possibly his freedom.

This incredible saga unfolds in a series of five novella-length stories, each set a different city around the world.

The series begins with Sunstone’s Fire, releasing on April 5, 2016, then followed by Opal’s Seduction, Amethyst’s Imbalance, Sapphire’s Star, and wraps up with Emerald’s Light on October 11, 2016. Learn more at: Cursed In Stone

While Zavier Sullivan may be the calm, reserved brother, his dragon is not. Especially since the beautiful, unorganized demi-goddess, Danielle Roberts—a.k.a Elle—moved into the mansion and into his life. She disturbs his OCD and makes him yearn for things he shouldn’t, but he can’t stay away from her. Nor can he deny her anything. Including his blood.

Ever since arriving at the home of the Sons of War, Elle has been plagued with dreams of the past and future. The visions are taking a toll, causing her debilitating headaches and ruining her sleep, but she doesn’t know what it all means. Her mother, Nyx, the Goddess of Night, has never bothered to show up and explain things to her. Until she arrives and unlocks Elle’s powers, promptly transforming her into a half-daimon, half-goddess. Now, Zavier may be her only hope of holding onto her humanity, but can she bond with him after everything she’s seen? Especially in the midst of everything the Sons and their mates are going through.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This story begins with Elle having a vision, one where Zavier her fated mate, dies. In order to prevent that she must get the Divine Dagger from the underworld, and hide it from Garrick.  Garrick (Zavier’s brother) is planning on overthrowing the Gods something that cannot be allowed to happen.

When Nyx, Goddess of Darkness and Elle’s mother shows up and unlocks her powers without warning or explanation.   Elle is suddenly a lot more than she was, but the transformation is harsh and debilitating. This is one of my favorite passages.

“Please don’t touch me.”
 
“Let me help you.”
 
“You’ve done enough. The mild skin irritation I used to get when going out in the sun has turned into blisters. My skin actually started to burn.” She closed her eyes, trying to calm the anger bubbling up while wishing she weren’t trapped inside a closet. A moment later, she was pulled through some kind of parallel space. When she opened her eyes, she gasped to find that she was standing next to her bed.
 
She’d teleported. Wide-eyed, she stared at Zavier, who faced her then closed the closet door. His features didn’t reveal any change in emotion. “What’s going on? You know something.”
 
He released a sigh and leaned against her dresser. “Gwen and I did some research and talked with Ash. Nyx isn’t just the goddess of night, she is night. But you already knew that much.”
 
She folded her arms and glared. “Just fucking tell me how much of a monster I’ve become.”
Chaotic War (Kindle Locations 359-366). After Glows. Kindle Edition.

 

A fast paced tale with lots of frustration sexual and otherwise. I love how each installment reveals twists and turns making the wait for the next one difficult, but worth it.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - Synopsis

The kitchen isn’t the only thing heating up this winter…

Tiffany Black, culinary artist and owner of Beary Sweets Café, is determined to make this year’s Winter Solstice celebration one to remember. Especially since it will also be the mating ceremony for her brother, Anthony, and soon-to-be sister-in-law, Connie. She wants everything to be perfect. Unfortunately, you can’t always get what you want. When she falls off a ladder in her café and breaks her ankle, she fears her plans are doomed. Until the sexy bear Healer, Holt, comes to the rescue—stirring up more than just recipes.

Mating has never been at the top of Holt’s to-do list, and he’s known Tiffany all her life. So when the mating urge slams into him after mending her ankle, he’s taken aback—unsure and intrigued at the same time. The girl he watched grow up is now a curvy, sensual woman, and his bear wants to claim her. He wants to claim her.

The stubborn female refuses to follow Healer’s orders and allow her ankle to heal, and she’s hell-bent on catering the winter celebrations. In order to do what needs to be done, she insists that he help her. Since it gives him an excuse to stay by her side, he’s all right with that. As they work side by side to make the Solstice unforgettable, their passions ignite, and things turn utterly delicious.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

Nothing says holiday like fresh baked goods, and lots of party foods. No one makes them better than Tiffany and when a storm threatens, she decides to move everything from Beary Sweets to her home. She doesn’t want the food to be stuck far away from the Winter Celebrations of Solstice and Matings.

In the process of moving things to the truck she spots the cake topper she thought she misplaced, out of her reach so she climbs up falls and breaks her ankle.  Shouldn’t be too big a deal Holt will fix her up and she’ll be good as new.

Only Holt doesn’t do a quick heal and quickly finds himself recruited to help. All it takes is a kiss that he’s not sure how happened and he’s fleeing the scene. Leaving Tiffany feeling hurt and rejected thinking he doesn’t feel the mating pull.

That all changes the next day after completing the prep for the next day’s celebration. Tiffany’s Mom takes Kaylee off for the rest of the day, leaving Holt and Tiffany alone. Subtle they aren’t, but they are shifters after all. This was a favorite scene.

Instead of picking up the crutch, he scooped her up in his arms and carried her to the sofa. “Want anything to eat?”

“Yes, please. There are pre-portioned meals in the freezer.”

He frowned, not at all liking the idea of her dieting. “What for?”

Tiffany laughed. “I get so busy working on new recipes and with the day-to-day at the café, that when I settle down, I’m too tired to cook. So, once a week I cook all my meals for the week and freeze them.”

His cheeks heated with embarrassment. “I’m sorry…”

She pressed a finger to his lips and gave him a smile that made his pants uncomfortable. “Shush. Go warm us up something to eat.”

“Yes, ma’am.” Before he straightened, he leaned in and kissed her. Pleasure exploded across his senses. When their tongues touched, a shot of electrified energy blasted through him.

Reluctantly, he ended the kiss and pressed his forehead to hers. A soft sigh escaped Tiffany. “If you have no intentions to claim me as your mate, you need to leave.”

What? He drew back, confused, and stared into her blue gaze. “Trust me, I have every intention, but I thought you needed time. That we needed time to…I don’t know, date or something.”

She nibbled on her bottom lip briefly before replying. “Dating is for humans. We’ve known each other all my life, even became friends. There’s no one else I’d rather be mated to.”

He scooped her up and proceeded down the hall, thoughts of food forgotten.

Now we can’t have everything go smoothly even at the holidays so the storm has to throw some wrenches into the mix. Not enough to spoil the ceremonies but enough to cause some angst.

Lots of love, laughter and very few tears. A perfect holiday read.
