How is a woman supposed to manage all of that and not fall apart? Kendall needs to figure out how to cope or the entire world will fall apart. Or maybe it already has and was always meant to.

A demon invades Malcolm’s date at Victoria’s party for her new born son. After ripping it out of her, Kendall ignores Malcolm and turns her attention to the problem at hand. What is the Phoenix and how do they get it back?

Kendall is obviously going to remain conflicted between her emotions and what must be. Her ex-husband wants to come back and Malcolm really wants things the way they used to be between them.

There is a lot of emotion in this book as Kendall traces her steps from the past. She has to remember it all and as she does it leads to an interesting encounter with airport security. This is just a part of that, I don’t want to spoil anything.

The ghost hissed. “Oh, you’re in trouble. I don’t want any part of this.”

No problem. I flung my hand in front of me, sending the ghost to wherever his next destination would be.

“That’s a family heirloom.” Levi called over the yellow line. “Could you put that away, please? That’s very valuable to my family. It’s obviously not a bomb.”

All eyes turned to Levi, and I groaned.

“Sir.” The TSA man pointed a finger at him. “We’re going to need you to back up.”

He held up his hands. “Come on man. I’m behind the yellow line. That’s my wife’s bag you’re messing with. I want the heirloom put back in the box. And I apologize for saying bomb. But it isn’t one.”

I rubbed at the headache forming between my eyes. Heaven help me from men trying to be helpful.

“This didn’t show in the scanner. Is the box it’s in made out of lead?”

I really didn’t know. I hadn’t examined the box to check. “My late grandmother stuffed it in a box,” I lied. “I don’t know anything about the box.”

The man held up the box. “This box is going to have to stay off the plane.”

Was lead now a prohibited item for air travel? I didn’t want to argue; I simply wanted to go. “Okay.”
Rebecca Royce. Phoenix Everlasting (Kindle Locations 863-875). After Glows.

Shadows turn up in the most unexpected places, and the group faces more and more challenges to their strength. All as they find the answers about surrounding the Phoenix.

I can’t wait for the next and final episode!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!

Cheers!!

Fugitive Tristan Hawthorne loved his captain and has spent five years searching for proof to convince Shadow Fleet he’s innocent his lover’s murder. Captured and bound for transport to a penal colony, he comes face to face with an old enemy and revelations about the murder. Tristan vows to expose the truth to the Fleet. He escapes, but crash lands on an unidentified and uncharted planet where he encounters an alien who stirs passions he thought long buried.

Lucan receives special permission from the council to fly to Oria to release his mother’s spirit on the sacred world. With no family remaining, he’s broken and unsure. However, he didn’t count on meeting a human while he’s alone and mourning. He’s drawn to Tristan’s swagger and strength. He longs to be near him, even though his mother warned him that humans are a violent race, bent on destroying themselves and anyone around them.

With one working ship and a failing planetary cloaking device, it’s a short time until humans discover Oria and Tristan is recaptured. Under the starry, moonlit sky of the holiday Jainfest, the men learn to overcome their feelings of fear and distrust, and winds up finding out they aren’t so different after all.

Winter Blog Review

Luc has received special permission to travel to Oria during the time of Jainfest. His purpose, to release his mother’s soul on this sacred planet then he would celebrate Jainfest there. A fitting place since the holiday was one of celebrating lost loved ones and communicating with them if they chose to appear.

It is after he finds the perfect spot to release his mother’s soul that he sees the human. The human is a beautiful man, and Luc’s reaction to him is one he didn’t expect. Especially with his heart so heavy with loss.

Tristan was fleeing with the evidence he needs to clear his name when he crash landed on a planet he never knew existed. He’d traveled this way thousands of times and had never seen it. It was uncharted, how could it be and then not be. The answers could possibly come from the alien he saw hiding behind a tree.

Trust doesn’t come easily for either of them, Tristan because he is human after all, and Luc because of the things he was taught to believe, all humans are violent and dangerous. However, neither of them can deny the attraction between them.

Luc helps Tristan send his evidence to Shadow Fleet command, and explains why they can’t leave the planet for three days.

In appreciation, Tristan offers his help and companionship with the rituals. Knowing that he is safe from being re-captured, at least for now, he finds he can relax.

A favorite scene is the beginning of Jainfest.

“Now, we wait,” Luc said. “If the spirits are going to appear, they will.”

“I’m patient.” Deep down Tristan wondered how long they’d wait. Not that he wanted to leave the spot. It was calming in a way. Besides, the night was beautiful and lying next to Luc helped relax him in ways he never could’ve imagined another man could.

A whisper on the breeze made him sit straight up, his heart hammered in his chest. “Austin?”

The captain’s name was a whisper but Tristan guessed by the way Luc tensed slightly beside him, he’d heard him, too. Luc reached for his hand, clasping it in his own.

A blurred figured appeared in front of them, becoming clearer by the second. It wavered as it materialized, but there was no mistaking who it was. A lump formed in Tristan’s throat. “Austin,” he repeated.

This is impossible. Tristan didn’t believe in ghosts. Or at least he didn’t before Austin appeared in front of him. He looked exactly like he did the day he died. Luc squeezed his hand in encouragement.

A warm tear rolled down Tristan’s cheek and he pulled free of Luc and stepped toward Austin. “I’m sorry.” His voice cracked and he didn’t care if it made him sound weak. If only he’d been there…

“There is nothing for you to be sorry about. If you were there with me, Gregor would have killed us both.” Austin moved closer, but not too close. He darted his gaze to Luc and gave a short nod. “You see, you have purpose. Things happen for a reason, remember?”

Austin had always told him the same thing. He lived his life with the belief that no matter what happened, it was meant to. Like Austin was meant to leave this life, and Tristan was to continue with his.

Without him.

Tristan also cursed the theory, screaming it wasn’t fair. That he was being punished for whatever he’d done in a past life. Glancing to Luc, who sat quietly watching, Tristan understood what Austin believed. What Tristan’s purpose was.

The dark, painful path Tristan had been on for the last five years led him to Oria. To Luc.

Emotional and inspiring this book takes us from the pain of loss, to believing there can be a new beginning.

Release Blitz for Sassy Ever After: Hexed with Sass by Lia Davis

Winter Blog Blurb

After losing her mother to an unexpected illness, and unable to locate a sister who is MIA, Pepper has to come to terms with being alone for the first in her life. She refuses to sit still and feel sorry for herself. Reviving her herb garden becomes her first project and she conjures a potion to help it grow. As she performs the spell, a silver wolf stumbles into her backyard, his focus on her. Knocking the magical potion from her grasp, he shifts into a hot and very naked man.

Wes Nash never expected to scent his mate while on a run. Seeing her in the flesh, tending to her garden by moonlight, is too much for him to deny. Little does he know the witch accidentally puts a hex on him, and not just his heart. Now, everything he touches sprouts leaves and flowers. But the screwed-up version of a green thumb is the least of their worries.

Pepper discovers a secret her mother didn’t get a chance to share before she died, and now the father she thought was dead comes back with dark plans of his own.

Winter Blog Review

Wes was annoyed at his interfering family and took off for a run to clear his head. What he finds is an irresistible scent that he follows to see a beautiful witch tending her garden.

Pepper was suffering with the loss of her mother, and frustrated at not being able to contact her sister. In an effort to console herself she decides to tend to her herb garden. Half of it was wilting and looked like Pepper felt. In order to try to save them she prepares a garden spell.

This is a favorite scene.

Pepper turned to her side and frowned. “I have something special for you.” Yeah, she talked to plants, not that it did any good by the look of the sad browning leaves. She just wasn’t as good at tending to a garden as her mom. Another ache formed in her chest. Stop. She’s in a better place, not in pain, and will live on in my heart.

After grabbing the plastic spray bottle from the rack on the outer wall of the house, she added water then about half of the potion to it. Kneeling on the edge of the pavers, she set the amber-colored glass jar of potion next to her. She’d freeze the remainder to use in about a month.

With the page to the spell in one hand, the spray bottle with the growth potion in the other, she sprayed the plants evenly while speaking the chant.

Gather strength by the moon’s glow.
Make leaves grow by Sun’s touch.

A snap of a twig behind her made her jump to her feet and whirl around, her heart hammering against her ribs. In the process, she knocked over the potion jar, spilling the dry herbal contents. Great. A low growl made her step backward. As she did, she stepped on the jar, cracking it.

A sting on her big toe had her glancing down. Damn. Blood mixed with the spilt potion on the pavers. Another great.

Annoyed at who or what disturbed her, she searched the woods her backyard merged with. A few yards away stood a beautiful silver wolf. She frowned after noting the too-human eyes staring back at her the color of the Caribbean ocean. It was a shifter. Most likely one of the Wolfe Pack’s.

She didn’t have much interaction with the Wolfe Pack except for the occasional run-in in town. Hotties with fur. She’d always kept her distant because she didn’t like drawing attention to herself. Besides, she had a sick mother to care for… until a few months ago.

The pack was located a few miles north of her coven. Still none of them had ever crossed over into the coven’s territory, as far as she knew.

She placed her hands on her hips. “What are you doing here? This is witch territory.”

There were several long moments before he stalked toward her, a hunger in those blue eyes. One step by slow step, he advanced, his nose twitching as if scenting the air. She narrowed her eyes. “I think you’re lost.”

Or on something.

Still, he didn’t stop. A low growl came from him that made her freeze. What the hell was wrong with him?

He stopped a few inches from her and sniffed. First at her hand, her leg, then her crotch. “Hey! Stop that.”

Perv.

She went to bat him away with the water bottle, but he knocked it to the ground with his paw. The lid broke open and the watery potion spilled onto the pavers at their feet, his fur dampening.

Damn it. “Don’t make me put you in a circle.”

That made him pause and tilt his head to the side. A moment later, the wolf shimmered and then a man stood naked as the day he was born in front of her. His dark blonde hair covered his ears and hung in his eyes. He was gorgeous, in a primal sort of way. “Good gods,” she breathed, not meaning to speak the words aloud.

He raised a brow and closed the distance between them, wrapped his arms around her waist and drew her to him. Heat flooded her entire body. “I was out for a run and lost my way. Or so I thought, until I found you.”
Lia Davis. Hexed with Sass (Kindle Locations 100-132). After Glows.

Within minutes it becomes apparent what she has done, but she doesn’t understand how or why. At least not until she finds a letter her mother had written her.

Wes isn’t happy with turning things to flowers and plants but there was no way he was letting his mate go. Even if she can’t find the reversal for the curse, he would find a way to win her heart and her approval to complete the mating.

This is a fun read with enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes, not to mention the extremely hot scenes.
