~*~ Blog Barrage ~*~ Turned by a Tiger (Eternal Mates #12) By Felicity Heaton

Turned by a Tiger (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 12)
Felicity Heaton


On the verge of bleeding out and hunted by his merciless torturers, Talon has no choice but to seek sanctuary at Underworld, a nightclub run by a jaguar shifter liable to kill him on sight for being a tiger shifter male. What he finds in the old warehouse isn’t the grim shadow of Death though but an angel of mercy, one who offers him salvation and revenge—one who happens to be his fated mate.

Tending bar at Underworld is never dull when you’re a mortal surrounded by immortals, but when a gorgeous tiger shifter covered in blood stumbles into the club, and set’s fire to her boss’s temper, Sherry’s entire world is in danger of being turned on its head. Something about the mysterious warrior has her stepping in to save him, something that ignites her heart and stirs her soul, and no matter how fiercely she fights it, she can’t hold herself back.

When Talon reveals the name of his captors, and his plan to head back in to save his friends, will Sherry be brave enough to embrace the feelings he stirs in her and step deeper into the world of immortals? And will Talon be strong enough to resist the lure of Sherry to protect his family’s secret or will he risk everything to claim his eternal mate?

Needed to escape.

As the pain abated, and the risk of passing out faded, the world drifted back together with the feel of hands on his forearms, restraining him.

Hands that held him firmly, but didn’t belong to the jaguar.

Talon opened his eyes and looked at the delicate hands on him, touching his bare flesh, stained with his blood. Not strong hands. Not immortal and unyielding, able to break his bones if he tried to escape.

They were tender, their touch comforting, their grip meant to restrain him with their gentle understanding and not force.

He lifted his eyes to meet blue ones.

The mortal.

She crouched before him, close to him, so close he could feel her heat and her scent rolled over him, sweet like honey and vanilla. Gods, he wanted to drown in that smell, wanted to roll in it and cover himself in it, to rub against her so he would smell of only her.

And she would smell of him.

A touch of colour darkened her cheeks, but she didn’t release him and didn’t move to distance herself.

She stood her ground, noble and courageous, determined to bend him to her will.

“Iolanthe won’t hurt you,” she whispered softly, her voice a gentle breeze that carried away his fear and his panic, and part of his pain, sedating him and easing his tiger side. That part of him settled, the desire to fight and flee fading as he looked into her eyes and let her words wash over him. She glanced at the elf. “Will you, Io?”

He looked there too, in time to see the elf nod.

“I’m no traitor… and I don’t have a clue what he’s blathering about. Is he delusional?”

The female had a way of insulting people with barely a handful of words that he had never encountered in his three hundred plus years.

The jaguar standing guard beside her slid her a look, rolled his eyes and sighed in a way that said he had given up trying to iron out this particular wrinkle in her personality and was just going to roll with it now.

“Elves work with Archangel now,” Talon muttered, and didn’t fight the human as she helped him back into a sitting position with his shoulders resting against the front of the bar.

The elf shrugged. “I know. My brother spent some time there with the prince.”

 

Talon’s guard went back up so fast it made him dizzy, the sudden spike in adrenaline sending strength surging through him and rousing his tiger instincts, bringing them back to the fore.

She spoke of the two guests.

She knew them.

She was in league with them.

“You mean me harm,” he barked and pushed the human away from him, launched a hand up to grab the rail around the bar above his head, and hauled himself onto his feet. He growled at the elf, his fangs punching long from his gums and fur rushing over his shoulders and arms as he called on more of his strength. His tiger instincts roared it was a trap. “You mean to hand me over to your brother and your brother will hand me to Archangel… and return me to the nightmare.”

A wave of dizziness, stronger than before, crashed over him and his knees buckled.

The little human caught him under his arms and steadied him, and he froze with his back pressing against the cold brass bar and her firm body warming his front.

Talon gazed down at her, awareness of the world around him washing away again.

Gods, she was achingly beautiful.

“It won’t happen.” Her soft voice offered the comfort he needed, soothing the raging beast inside him, placating it and subduing him with a speed that left him shaken.

What power did this female have over him?

It was dangerous.

He was dangerous.

As much as he wanted her, as deeply as he needed her, he couldn’t have her.

~*~

My Review:

This time around, we have a tiger shifter who hasn’t had an easy time and a mortal woman who’s smack dab in the middle of all the immortal craziness. That said, she’s still mortal and that puts her in a dangerous situation.

Talon and Sherry have this sizzling chemistry from the get go, two souls that call to each other

They are sent on a path of discovery, unravelling hidden secrets.

A love that is Eternal and every lasting .

Heaton gives us a world filled with elves, demons, shifters, and much more. I love the Eternal Mates series. This series just keeps getting better and better as it goes. I absolutely love the different characters and learning each of their stories.

It’s great when there’s crossovers with previous characters.
If you haven’t started the series you don’t need to to enjoy this book.

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Dark Lord of the Night by S.K. Ryder

Dark Lord of the Night (Dark Destinies #2)

The only thing standing between a new vampire and eternal darkness is the mortal woman who claims his heart.

Youngling vampire Dominic Marchant struggles to master his deadly instincts as he hunts the urban jungles of South Florida. He keeps his hunger confined to the blood of the guilty with help from Cassidy Chandler, a human woman who can literally touch his soul. Their love is his last remaining tether to humanity, which is tested beyond endurance when powerful forces from his past introduce him to terrifying new appetites he could never have imagined.

His efforts to protect Cassidy from the depravity overtaking him push their relationship to the brink of shattering. Refusing to give up on the man who is her heart, she takes an unthinkable gamble to save him. But is she fulfilling an ominous prophecy that ensnares them both? Or has she become just another pawn in a cunning game played by the five-thousand-year-old vampire who claims Dominic as his own?

Desperate to rescue her from a fate worse than death, Dominic strikes a perilous bargain with his greatest enemies only to face an impossible choice—embrace his darkest self . . . or destroy the woman he cannot live without.

~*~
My Review:
So this is my first time reading anything by SK Ryder, although this is the 2nd book in this series I was told that I could read this without reading the first one
I got a good sense of the main characters Dominic, Cassidy , Serge and Jackson.
I had an issue with getting into this story which is unusual for me.
Maybe it was because I hadn’t read the first one, who knows, I did find at times it seemed be too drawn out, anywho here is my review:
Dominic Marchant is a vampire and in love with Cassidy Chandler
He seems to be fighting to keep his humanity, Cassidy seems to keep him grounded
but it looks like he might need to make a choice; his humanity or his Cassidy!
The decisions made come with great consequences, and many are heavy and often involve life or death, or both even.
It was a good story full of love, hope, darkness and blood.

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Ruined By Power (Empire of Angels #2) by Zoey Ellis

Ruined By Power (Empire of Angels #2)

Not all habits can be broken…

Powerful, half-angel Thea faces the scrutiny of the Angel Realm and is beginning to realize that angels are nothing like how they are depicted in the human world. She is intrigued to hear information about her family and pursues the history that has been hidden to her for so long. As Thea tries to get the answers she needs, her faith in Cam is shaken when truths about him are revealed.

Power angel Cam is concerned when he realizes the Angel Realm has plans for Thea he wasn’t made aware of. He fights to keep her close and protect her from the challenges she faces. However, when the pressures on their relationship bear down, he teeters on the edge of a darkness that could cause her to walk away from him forever.

***This is a continuing story from the first book in the series, Claimed By Power.***

~*~

My Review:

Firstly I would like to give the lovely author a HUGE thank you for kindly providing me with a copy of “Ruined By Power” to read and review.

Since the first book both Thea & Cam have come along way in terms of their relationship and trust issues, will they be able to survive further turmoil, misconceptions, interfering & personal demons…..

Thea embarks on honing her skills and developing them more and more each day whilst being in the Angel Realm, waiting for Cam to have his meeting with the Thrones to determine their future, to determine whether they can truly mate one another, to determine whether Thea is actually a Nephilim

Cam hasn’t felt this way in a very long time, he’s frightened he may do something wrong, something to push Thea away from him when he’s only just got her back on his side, what will happen when an urgent mission takes him away from her weeks at a time?

I will pre-warn you though there is a cliffhanger at the end….one that may/may not have guessed….AND we have to wait until AUGUST to find out what happens next!!!!!

MY BEST FRIEND’S EX
New Adult STANDALONE Romantic Comedy

Amazon
UK
CA
AU

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.
Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.
Boy, was I wrong.
Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.
Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.
But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.
Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

~*~

My Review:

Firstly I want to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Meghan for kindly providing me with a copy of “My Best Friends Ex”
I absolutely FLOVED this book, heartbreaking at times, gut wrenching even…
I really enjoyed Emma. She’s smart, sassy and a bit raunchy and I loved that about her.
And then there’s Tucker. Fucking Tucker.
The man stole my heart.
His past has made him alone and hurting and he has the oh so sexy brooding feeling to him.
Until Emma comes along and slowly turns him into the man that we all fall for.
My Best Friend’s Ex is hilarious, witty, sassy and fun.
It also has a bit of angst that tightly binds everything into one amazing package.
The banter back and forth between Emma and Tucker, Emma and her friends and Tucker and Racer is so fun and they had me rolling most of the time.
Meghan’s writing has got to be some of the best in the business.
She writes relatable characters that have deep feelings and are in realistic situations.
Romance readers- if your looking for a book that will make you laugh-out-loud and completely touch your heart this is the book you need! I promise, you will not be disappointed.
If you’re new to the author, I think you will become addicted to her novels, I know I am.
~*~
About the Author:
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ The Revival by Hollis Canon

The Revival

Loner. Grade A loser. White trash.

Troian Michaels has been called these and much more in the three years of her high school existence. The girls at school pick on her because of who her parents are. Her momma? The town whore. Her father? The same man who is the father of the most beautiful and popular girl in her grade.
Troian is no stranger to heartbreak and feeling less than she is. Her brother Zaiden is the only person who even cares about her. When Zaiden comes by for a visit, he sees the shape she is in. Bruises covering her face, few scars marring her once perfect complexion, she feels like she doesn’t matter.

Drug Addict. Wannabe Musician. Rich kid.

Cade Stephens has heard it all before. He has a bad reputation and he doesn’t care much about what others think about him. He had a give no shit type of attitude, but secretly wants more. He wants to have a reason to continue living sober, a reason to not always feel so alone in his own head.
People have always judged Cade on the way he dresses, the tattoos that cover his arms, and the piercings in his lip. They may make up the image of him, but his music is what truly drives him. Music makes him feel alive, or as alive as he can possibly feel anymore.

~*~

My Review:

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Hollis Canon for kindly reaching out to me as a new & up ‘n’ coming author and kindly providing me with a copy of “The Revival” to read and review.
This was such a great story, it was raw, the back story to Troian was gripping, she lived such a hard & horrible life, that is of course until her older brother, her hero stepped in and took her away from it all.
Its hard an upsetting knowing that this kind of bullying happens in this day & age, and what hurts more is that the majority of “humans” won’t involve themselves, to help, protect or save someone who’s in a bad situation at that time, I’d like to think that if I ever saw something so horrific happening that I would step in to help if/hen the time was needed.
I do hope that we get to see more from these, maybe in the second one (if there is on) we get to see the backstory to Cade, the deep, dark & bad secret that he’s hiding from everyone.
Revival is a story of surviving and living in the moment, not letting anyone or anything come in-between your happiness, even if it means kicking out family.
I love this debut novel by Canon, I believe the best is still to come, I can only imagine what happens next

~*~ Review ~*~ Road-Tripped: A Sexy Romantic Comedy (Ad Agency #1) by Nicole Archer

What’s worse than driving a phallic-shaped RV across the country with a coworker you hate? Falling in love with them.

Copywriter Callie Murphy has a bad attitude, a vicious tongue, and a serious aversion to Shimura Advertising’s resident manwhore, Walker Rhodes. Know where he can stick his good looks and Southern charm? She can think of a few creative places. Avoiding him wouldn’t be a problem, except her boss threatens to fire her if she doesn’t go along with him on their RV client’s cross-country tour.

Burnt-out art director, Walker, is sick of his job, tired of women, and in a big old creative rut. The upcoming client road trip is just what he needs to shake things up and rediscover his lost passion. But his plans go south when his partner drops out at the last minute, and Callie, the foul-mouthed tiny terror, takes her place. Unless he can find a way to thaw his icy coworker, he’s looking at two months of pure hell.

Road-Tripped is a stand-alone novel and the first book in the Ad Agency Series.

*Not for readers under 18. Erotic sex, adult language, and drug use.

~*~ My Review ~*~

Road-Tripped; book one in the Ad Agency Series, by Nicole Archer is a contemporary romance following the crashing and burning life of Callie Murphy.

Callie finds herself working for her friend, Skip, at his ad agency in New York, she is hard as nails and funny as hell.

Walker Rhodes is an irresistible, dreamy hunk, who Callie prefers to call the office Man-Whore

Callie has just been told she has to go on cross-country tour with her “manwhore” co-worker Walker Rhodes for an RV campaign,

what could possible go wrong?

or right for that matter?

How the hell is Walker supposed to live with a foul tempered, mouthy woman who he knows hates him for 2 months?

How is Callie supposed to put up with being around the mega sexy manwhore 24/7!

Let the real fun begin!

The sexual tension was off the charts! I was almost breaking a sweat so when they finally got down and dirty it was explosive!! hahahaha

The sound track that Archer added was a great touch.

Road-Tripped is hilarious, heartwarming, sexy and simply one helluva fun-filled adventure!

~*~ About the author ~*~

Archer’s lengthy career as an advertising copywriter not only polished her writing skills, it provided a lifetime of book material. Many months her book purchases are as high as her mortgage. As a full-time, working single mom of a beautiful, brilliant, and horrifically energetic son, she has little time to do much else but work, write, read, drink wine, and breathe. In real life, she lives in Dallas, Texas, but she’d rather live in Switzerland. Maybe if the book takes off.

~*~ New Release & Blog Tour ~*~ The Rise of the Dawnstar (The Avalonia Chronicles #2) by Farah Oomerbhoy

The Rise of the Dawnstarbook two of The Avalonia Chronicles.

Aurora Firedrake returns in the spellbinding sequel to The Last of the Firedrakes.

The seven kingdoms of Avalonia are crumbling and evil is spreading across the land like a plague. Queen Morgana is close to finding a way to open The Book of Abraxas and it’s only a matter of time until she uses the power trapped inside its pages to enslave the entire world.

With Avalonia growing more dangerous by the day, Aurora must travel through war-torn lands and deep into the heart of the fae kingdom of Elfi. Her goal is to find a legendary weapon infused with the last of the realm’s ancient magic—the only weapon in the world powerful enough to stop the queen.

Aurora might have survived her first battle against Morgana, but the true fight to save her kingdom and restore her throne has only just begun…

~*~ My Review ~*~

Wow!

Absolutely FLOVED this one, it not only lived up to the expectations I had from the first book but absolutely annihilated  it.

Following book 1, Aurora must find a way to defeat the evil Morgana.

Aurora makes mistakes at first, like any normal 17 year old, but she does a lot of growing up and maturing, learning from her mistakes.

“Aurora Darlington was gone. Nothing in the world was going to change that. I was Aurora Firedrake, and I was born to be a queen. The people of Illiador needed me, my people needed me, and this time I would not fail them.”

Rafe continues to dazzle as the ever so charismatic Eldorian prince *swoon* and we also get to meet some hot fae warriors, this may I add includes the Prince of the Night Court, Tristan. Is it bad of me to say that I can’t choose between Rafe & Tristan for Aurora??? I wouldn’t like to be her when making that decision.

As war wages, deception and betrayal is waiting at her every turn, and new obstacles present themselves.

Her quest for her mother, and few strategies for defeating Morgana are quickly fall apart.

Could there be a legend of an ancient weapon, with ancient magic that could be the answer?

Having faced the evil queen once and miraculously surviving, will she finally be able to defeat the queen once and for all if the legendary Dawnstar truly exists?

Now is their only hope.

You get drawn into the story as the lead character discovers the extent of her powers and the twists and turns her adventure takes her looking forward to the next instalment.
