SHADOW’S CURSE BY ALEXA EGAN

Book Description

September 24, 2013
Can the magic of desire defeat the powers of darkness?Forced by her half brother to use her dark gift of necromancy for profit, lovely Callista Hawthorne is determined to flee to her one chance for safety, her aunt in Scotland. With no hope of success unless she finds help on the long road north, she offers cursed shapechanger David St. Leger an irresistible bargain.

David—one of the mysterious Imnada—stalks the night streets of Regency London as a large black wolf. Renounced by his own kind, he spends his desperate rage on thieves and murderers. While Callista’s proposal will allow him to escape the terrible enchantment binding him, agreeing to her terms will force him into the treacherous world of the half-Fey Other, his clan’s ancient foes.

Drawn together by danger, David and Callista find passion in each other’s arms. But can they forswear the centuries of enmity separating their two races, and find a love they dare not even imagine?

I was given a copy by Netgalley for an honest review.

Shadow’s Cursehas a very well-developed story line and characters, with a very fast-paced, and action packed story. David St. Ledger is a shape-shifter and is cursed. He must drink a special elixir to stay alive. He meets Callista who is being forced into a marriage with a man who only wants her talent. She tries to run away, but is captured in an alley, and is rescued by David in the form of a wolf.  They team up together to find a cure for David, and he helps her to freedom to Scotland. This is a great combination of regency and paranormal, an I give it 4/5 stars.

TODAY IS A LAZY DAY.

I decided today I want to be lazy. The only important thing to do is going to the doctor and give him blood for some more tests. My sodium levels were low and my D3 levels were low and he wants to recheck them. After that I am taking my Nephew’s to Barnes and Nobles. I have not been in a while and one of my Nephew’s let me know that I have not taken him there in a long time.So we planned to go today.

I love the smell of a book store. I now wish that I had never left the one that I had worked at over 20 years ago. I had so much fun working there and finding new author’s to read. Every new shipment was like Christmas or my birthday. They say hindsight is 20/20, I always wanted to look up that saying and see how an where it originated. So lazy is my word of the day, and that is exactly what I plan on doing. I also plan on surfing other blogs to see what others are talking about today. What are you planning for today?

REVIEW FOR CURSED BY DESTINY BY CECY ROBSON

CURSED BY DESTINYbuyamzon-button-plain

Book Description

         Publication Date:         January 7, 2014
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…
Celia’s a girl in trouble.  Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pure blood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction.  And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)
In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her.
And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric…
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
Cursed By Destiny is packed with a lot of action and humor. It will make you laugh and cry, with the sisters and everything that happens to them. It is very well written with well-developed characters and story line. Celia Wird is now living with Misha in his vampire compound after Aric decided to follow the orders to take a pure blood as his wife to help replenish the WERE population. Celia’s training with Misha’s bodyguards and others that protect him has made her a better fighter.  She also has to keep her guard up, because Misha keeps trying to get her into his bed.  She continues to go on missions to try to eradicate the Tribesmen, but now they now her name and they are coming for her.
When she is at her sister’s birthday party, one of the Tribesmen comes looking for her and the fight begins. Now they have to find out how the Tribesmen now her name and remove the threat. She is then poisoned at Misha’s , to where she is really possessive about Aric and if she can not have him then she does not want to live. They have to rid her body of the poison before she harms herself more. Then The vampire compound is attacked and Misha is severely wounded and is about to die, Celia tells him to drink from her. When he does he almost drains her. This invokes the marriage bond between them. So now Celia and Misha are now married. This part of the book has some funny parts in it, with her and Misha fighting about it. There is some other parts in the book that are really good, along with a special surprise at the end that will have you either jumping up and down or saying oh shit! All in all this is a great book and I give Cursed By Destiny 5/5 stars.

LAST DRAGON STANDING BY G.A. AIKEN BOOK REVIEW

LAST DRAGON STANDINGbuyamzon-button-plain

Book Description

         Publication Date:         September 1, 2010
“Sexy and outrageous humor.” —Romantic TimesI know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail’s length. A technique that’s worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who’ve come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile. Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless and, to my great annoyance, rather stupid!Yet I’ll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he’ll learn my worth, my many skills, and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him to his knees.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
I loved reading the story about Keita and Ragnar.The way that everyone believes she is a spoiled, pampered,  airhead, but she has them all fooled. She is the smartest and dangerous one of the bunch. When Ragnar  ignores or dismisses her it makes Keita tease, taunt and then bring him to wanting her. The characters and story line are well-developed, and it is great to see how the characters from previous books are getting along. The dialogue between Keita and Ragnar is really hilarious, that it will have you bursting out laughing at the wrong time. I always enjoy a Dragon kin novel and any thing G.A. Aiken writes. I give Last Dragon Standing 5/5 stars.

THE BEAST IN HIM BY SHELLY LAURENSTON

the beast in himbuyamzon-button-plainBook Description

         Publication Date:         April 1, 2008
In The Mane Event, Shelly Laurenston introduced a whole new breed of heroes—sexy, shape-shifting hunks who redefine the term Alpha male. Now, in THE BEAST IN HIM, one gorgeous lone wolf is about to meet his match…Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward “accidentally” bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she’s come since high school. Back then, Jess’s gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty’s “all the better to ravish you with” body came near her. So, some things haven’t changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp—or twenty—with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

The sexy, polished CEO who hires Smitty’s security firm might be a million miles from the lovable geek he knew, but her kiss, her touch, is every bit as hot as he imagined. Jess was never the kind to ask for help, and she doesn’t want it now, not even with someone targeting her Pack. But Smitty’s not going to turn tail and run. Not before proving that their sheet-scorching animal lust is only the start of something even wilder…

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I loved The Beast In Him, it was well written with well-developed characters and story line.  Anything Shelly Laurenston writes is a keeper. Smitty or Bobby Ray Smith and Jesse Ann have a past together. They have known each other while growing up. They were friends, and Smitty always came to her rescue when she was picked on and beat up. Now they meet again when Smitty’s company is doing the security for Jesse’s party which she is throwing for her company, in which she is CEO of a security system company.  He wants to be friends again and she does not want have anything to do with him.  Jesse has been in love with Smitty, but when he left town and did not even kiss her goodbye hurt her worse than anything could. Now he has to try to convince her that he wants her, and loves her. I loved all the chaos that Jesse Ann lives in, because she has no privacy or solitude to herself. There is always someone underfoot and it makes or some pretty humorous situations. There are parts where they are being attacked and there is some funny dialogue going on. Be warned  when you read this you will laugh quite a bit, so keep any liquids away from any electronic devices in case you spill your drink while laughing. I give The Beast In Him 5/5 stars.
