IMMORTALLY YOURS BY LYNSAY SANDS – REVIEW

immortally yours coverI will always be Immortally Yours!

Irresistible chemistry and thrilling suspense combine in this electrifying new installment in New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series…

One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That’s how long it’s been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen “Scotty” MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth’s a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn’t need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.

Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he’s long suspected: She’s his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he’ll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who’s terrifyingly close.

I love the Argeneau series! The characters and storyline are always well developed. Beth has sported a crush for a long time. Beth is Scotty’s life mate. Now throw in a mystery of someone trying to kill Beth. This throws Scotty and her together and he cannot ignore it any longer. He must claim her. I love the humor that is always in a Lynsay Sands book. If you have not started any of the Argeneau series, I urge you to do so. I recommend this book to everyone. I give Immortally Yours 5/5 stars.

REVIEW – DARK QUEEN BY FAITH HUNTER

dark queen cover

Jane Yellowrock used to hunt vampires, but now she must fight–and win–beside them.

As Enforcer to the vampire Master of the City of New Orleans, Jane Yellowrock stakes her reputation and her life on keeping her territory safe. But Leo has been issued a blood challenge by the emperor of the European vampires, who seeks to usurp all of his power and possessions. If Leo loses the match to the death, the city will be forfeit, and the people of New Orleans will suffer the consequences. Jane can’t let that happen.

Preparing for the duel requires all of Jane’s focus, but with so much supernatural power in play, nothing goes according to plan. She has to rely on herself and the very few people she knows she can trust to stand and fight. Only two things are guaranteed: nothing is sacred, and no one is safe.

If you had one word to describe this book, mine would be “WOW!”. DARK QUEEN will have you on an emotional roller coaster, that you have been through the wringer. Faith Hunter is truly a master of her craft. I am so glad this was not the last book of the series and the publishing Gods have taken pity on us and given us two more books in the series. How can I sum up the book without giving away any spoilers? We all know that Jane and The Vamps of New Orleans are  getting ready for the SANGRE DUELLO. During all the preparing a new twist is thrown in. Someone claiming to be her brother shows up at her doorstep. Even though Jane has made a family with the Youngers and a few others, this brings up a lot of questions. One is why didn’t anyone come looking for her until now? Wouldn’t they want to know what has happened to her? Jane has to keep her focus on the European Vamps and making sure they don’t sabotage the Sangre Duello. With each book Jane’s character has grown. I love the characters and world building that Faith Hunter has created. I recommend this book and series to everyonr.  I give Dark Queen (Jane Yellowrock) 5/5 stars.

Review – Shadow’s Bane by Karen Chance

shadow's bane cover
Half-human, half-vampire Dorina Basarab is back–and facing her biggest challenge yet in the next urban fantasy in the New York Times bestselling series.

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir–half-human, half-vampire. As one of the Vampire Senate’s newest members, Dory already has a lot on her plate. But then a relative of one of Dory’s fey friends goes missing. They fear he’s been sold to a slaver who arranges fights–sometimes to the death–between different types of fey.

As Dory investigates, she and her friends learn the slavers are into something much bigger than a fight club. With the Vampire Senate gearing up for war with Faerie, it’ll take everything she has to defeat the slavers–and deal with the entirely too attractive master vampire Louis-Cesare….

WOW!! SHADOW’S BANE is a roller coaster ride of fun and action! There was areas in the book that had me chuckling. A Dhampir usually has a short life, because their Vampire half matures faster than their human half and tries to tear them apart. Her father Mircea had put a mental wall between her two natures to allow her human half to mature.   Now the wall is down and the two halves are inhabiting the same body. Dorina- the Vampire half, and Dory- the Human half are co-existing. Dorina usually only comes out when Dory is unconscious. Now it seems they are awake at the same time more often. Dory is now an  official Senate member and awaiting the actual ceremony in a week. She is tasked with trying to find the slavers that are stealing the Fey. In this book we will actually get two points of view. One will be from Dory and the other from Dorina. I love this series and recommend it to everyone. I give Shadow’s Bane (Dorina Basarab) 5/5 stars.

BURN BRIGHT – REVIEW

burn bright cover
In her bestselling Alpha and Omega series, Patricia Briggs “spins tales of werewolves, coyote shifters, and magic and, my, does she do it well” (USATODAY.com). Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…

I love Charles and Anna!! When the wildings are in trouble, Anna and Charles must find out who is hunting them. The wildings are wolves who are too dangerous or damaged to be with the Marrock pack. There is one willing to betray the pack! This book will captivate you and keep you reading until the very end.  I could not put this book down. I always love the world building and character interactions. I recommend this book and series to everyone! I give Burn Bright (Alpha and Omega) 5/5 stars.

SHADOW HUNT – REVIEW

shadow hunt coverAre you ready for a Shadow Hunt?

For years now, Scarlett Bernard has counted on two things: her ability to nullify magic, and Shadow, the bargest who guards Scarlett with her life. But after a sudden revelation turns Scarlett’s world upside down, she panics and leaves town without warning, leaving Shadow with her partner, Jesse. In the chaos that follows, the bargest is stolen—and Jesse nearly dies from a brutal psychic assault.

It seems that an old enemy has returned for revenge…and the attack on Shadow was only the beginning. As Scarlett races home to find the bargest and rescue her friends, she is dragged deeper into a terrifying legend that has somehow found its way to present-day Los Angeles.

Now she will have to recruit every possible ally for a battle that will test her null ability to the limit. Scarlett has been in over her head before, but now she risks losing everything…and she’s never had more to lose.
