Blog Tour ~ Unexpectedly Mated by Milly Taiden

 Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00068]

blurb

After years of lusting over Jake Wolfe, Nicole finally got a taste of the dirty-talking bad boy. During the scenting ceremony, he showed her how explosive things can be between them. But Nicole doesn’t do love. She doesn’t even know what love is. So how can she know if a relationship with Jake would be the right path to take?

Jake Wolfe wants Nic more than his next breath. She’s curvy, mouthy and so hot his blood boils just thinking of her. But Nic’s been keeping him at a distance. And Jake is tired of her games. One fateful trip to Sin City and all bets are off.

After a fun night of drinking, Nic wakes up married to Jake and with a second shifter wanting her for himself. She’ll have to finally face the feelings she has or shut them out forever. Their newly formed bond will either allow her to open her heart to love or leave Jake without a mate to call his own.

© Milly Taiden

The others had gone silent. She wondered what they were up to. Where they as freaked out as her? Probably not. She’d bet Emma would live in the damn forest if she got a chance. Leaves crunched from a nearby bush. With an agility she knew she didn’t possess, she got on her knees on the blanket. The noise in the trees increased. Fear froze the blood in her veins. Her heartbeat thundered in her ears along with the sound of the harsh breaths that struggled in and out of her lungs. There was a wild animal near her.

Holy. Shit.

“Oh, hell no!” There was no way she would sit around to find out what the heck was in the bush. She struggled to her feet. Her leg had gone numb so she had to put her weight, which was not just a couple of pounds, on her other leg. Screw the video, she’d return in the morning and remove the camera.

She bent and yanked her bag from the blanket. Something poked at her ass. She turned on her heel to run. Her knees hit a big lump of…fur? Her body did a full flip over the big furry body and she landed on her back with a thud, half on and half off the blanket.

“Ouch!”

Within seconds, a furry face she knew all too well came into view.

“Jake?”

The big wolf lowered his head down to her face and licked her cheek. Figured. He was such a horndog. Even in his animal shape, he was still a flirt.

review

First this is part of a series but each of these wonderfully written novels can be stand alone. Each of them have their own unique Wolfe Brother along with a feisty yet one of a kind mate that is destined to be theirs. I would highly recommend reading the other two Sassy Mates novels. They each do start off at the beginning a little bit from the same stand point but then they flourish into their own story that will have your kindle heating one moment and the next you will be laughing. With that being said Unexpectedly Mated involves Jake who is sexy and puts out like a male horndog (as our sassy mate describes him), however there is even more deeper feelings behind his outside shell that you find out. He leads a business that every man or wolfe would kill to own but when it comes around finding that one; lets just say she may not be too happy about the business he runs. When you get inside of Nicole who is one independent but very sassy and feisty women you learn that there is a reason why she wears a mask and of it is better to be alone than follow in the world she grew up with. I don’t wish that kind of life on anyone. You really learn how strong she really is and how right she can be for Jake only thing is she has to realize it. These two will have you awing at some points and you can feel the love that they are trying to hold back; but then the next it had me laughing especially with what happened in Vegas. This author has a way of writing that brings her readers into the story. From the impeccable writing and plot to what she brought out in this story with the characters I loved this one out of all three of the sassy mates. Watch out because she did bring in new characters so it has me wondering what the future will hold with not just the Wolfe Pack but also the other new characters. I highly recommend this for anyone that enjoys picking up an erotic paranormal romance that actually wants a story behind it.

about the author

MillyTaiden (1)

 

Hi! I’m Milly Taiden (AKA April Angel). I love to write sexy stories. They’re usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. My contemporaries are usually anything from soldiers to corporate romances.

I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog “Needy Speedy”. Don’t ask.

When I’m not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. But when I’m not doing that, I’m usually writing because the voices won’t shut up.

I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn’t, right?) and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

Come on over and visit me! I love to meet new readers!

I hope you enjoyed this book. If you did, please consider writing a review.

Blog Tour ~ Blood and Roses by Cozie W. Harmon

 bloodrosescover

 cozie 1

Caught in a cycle of life, death and rebirth…

 

Cursed with immortality, Nicolei believes the vampire blood coursing through his veins means he will forever be alone. As he prowls through the countryside, draining peasants one after another, his hatred for his existence only grows. Until one night fate shows him a life of possibilities with a beauty that deserved more than a dingy tavern. Claiming Katarina was easy; taming her was more of a challenge. She would be the life or death of him with her mischief, but her bewitching ways would keep him chasing her for centuries.

 

Is it merely Déjà vu or fate that brings us together?

 

Rispa takes refuge in New Orleans during a desperate attempt to escape a treacherous life with her sadistic husband, Thorn. Drawn to the Big Easy by an unknown force, she prays the spirits said to haunt the city will protect her. Her senses come alive while walking the streets of the French Quarter, and an intriguingly familiar woman named Onyx enters her life. As their passions rise, whispered voices and memories of the past help unlock the secrets of their souls…

 

Immortal or mortal, can love truly last the ages?

 cozie 2

Onyx woke as the sun’s bright rays pierced the room. Stumbling out of bed, she cursed under her breath for not closing the curtains the night before. With one hand over her eyes to shield them from the light, she made her way to the windows pulling the curtains closed. Welcoming the darkness again, she approached the bed to gaze at the lovely Rispa, still in peaceful slumber. The last twelve hours sent her life into a whirlwind. A woman she’d dreamt about walked into her life yesterday. It’d started out as a normal day. Today she felt like she was stumbling down a long black top road, not knowing what might jump out in front of her. Rispa’d started a chain reaction of events when she entered the shop yesterday. Okay, here was the damsel to rescue, now what? After hearing Rispa’s story, Onyx knew a battle was yet to come. Onyx was aware of their past lives together. She’d dreamt of this woman her entire life and knew Rispa was the one she’d been chasing for centuries, one lifetime after another. They would be born, find each other and end tragically at the hands of their enemy time and time again. I always have to rescue her. And here once again, it’s him. Do we have to do this every time?

Onyx returned to bed and snuggled beside the sleeping. Trying to fall asleep again, she realized she’d been waiting for Rispa by the water in her dream, but she never came. She wondered if she concentrated now, could she find Rispa in her reverie and take her back to the beginning where they first met all those centuries ago. Traveling back to that time might open Rispa’s eyes to the connection between them. When sleep overcame Onyx again she searched for Rispa through the dimensions of her dreams. She had a hunch as to where to find her. Rispa was still a lost soul adrift in this lifetime, so Onyx went to the one place she knew was a safe haven—the clearing in the woods.

Making her way through the trees Onyx saw Rispa sitting in the middle of the clearing, knees drawn to her chest. A dark shadow loomed over her, keeping her captive. She made her way toward Rispa as the shadow shrank back and disappeared. When they were in this dimension together, the smoky apparition was powerless.

Onyx moved like lightning to Rispa and placed a hand on her shoulder. She called Rispa by her first given name, “Katarina.”

Rispa looked over her shoulder to see Onyx standing behind her. She struggled to stand like she was trying to escape a puddle of molasses.

 

Facing one another, Onyx looked deep into Rispa’s soul through the windows of her eyes hoping for recognition.

When their eyes locked and their souls met, the trees around them and the ground beneath them faded away. The dimensions of the shared dream shifted as time unwound. The trees around them were replaced by buildings and the dirt beneath them turned into cobblestone streets.

 

The two found themselves in a dim alleyway. Onyx pushed Rispa against the crumbling exterior of a building. Rispa’s hands were pinned above her head, held tight in Onyx’s grip. Looking down, Rispa realized she was wearing a long burgundy velvet dress. As she wiggled beneath Onyx’s hold, she found it was hard to breathe. She felt the laces of the corset pressing into her back and how tight it cinched around her waist.

“Am I dreaming?” Rispa asked.

Onyx fed more of her weight to Rispa, putting her lips to her ear. “A dream you say?”

Rispa tried to move, but every time she did, Onyx pushed harder against her.

She felt Onyx’s breath in her ear again. It caused goose bumps to form on her arms. “Do you remember the very first time we met…Katarina?”

Struggling against Onyx’s vice-like grip, Rispa tried to free herself. It was no use. She was no match for Onyx’s strength. “What did you call me?”

“I called you Katarina. You must remember that name,” Onyx’s lips traced a kiss on her neck.

Rispa’s heart raced. Her pulse beat rampant. Warmth spread throughout her body causing her to feel her own blood coursing through every vein in her body. The mortar from the bricks pierced her skin through the soft fabric of her dress as Onyx ground her hips against her. Memories flooded Rispa’s mind. “Yes, I know who you are.”

Onyx repositioned Rispa’s wrists so she could hold them with one hand. She used her other to lift Rispa’s dress high enough to put her hand beneath it. Once her palm touched Rispa’s flesh, she moved it up, teasing.

Rispa moaned in pleasure. Onyx kissed the pulsating vein of Rispa’s neck and sucked the skin between her teeth.

 

Onyx’s mouth watered with anticipation, breathing in innocence and the metallic scent of blood. She moved her hand up Rispa’s thigh, pausing to press her thumb hard against the pulsating artery on the inside. She felt heat emanating from between Rispa’s legs. Tugging harder at the silky skin of her neck, Onyx suppressed the urge to rip her skin to shreds. Instead she quickened her rhythm, rocking her hips harder and faster against Rispa. As a scream escaped Rispa’s lips, Onyx slowed her pace, moving her hand upward to the moist folds of Rispa’s sex. She rubbed back and forth until Rispa was so drenched she could hear the slippery connection. With her thumb on Rispa’s clit, she pressed down hard, and slid her finger deep inside her channel. Onyx’s body responded as the crotch of her pants became soaked. Rispa clenched around Onyx’s fingers as they moved in perfect rhythm thrusting in and out. Their climaxes built as sweat beaded on their skin. It was a slow passionate heat rising from the core and spreading throughout every inch of their bodies. Energy glowed around the two, illuminating the darkness with bright blue light.

When I read this I couldn’t believe that it was the author’s debut novel! The author has written this novel about two souls that as they are reborn again they find each other again throughout the centuries and then tragedy seems to find them. For most of this novel you find yourself in the scenes of New Orleans and their paranormal worlds that hides.  You have one character (this one known as Onyx) that throughout the centuries knows and understands who she was in past lives. However, Rispa needs a little more help to remember. And Onyx knows just the way to show Rispa.  The scenes between these two are swoon worthy but then it becomes more in depth and you can tell exactly how deep their feelings run. Can these two find love without the past haunting them and tragedy striking again? The Plot is very unique and original, the characters that the author brings to the readers are full of life and you will fall in love with their story the way I did. This was an exceptionally well written novel and I will look forward from more by this author in the future.

 I would highly recommend this novel for those that enjoy paranormal.

Dark Blood by Christine Feehan ~ ARC Review & Giveaway!

Dark-Blood1

The fates of a warrior reborn and a seductive Dragonseeker are irrevocably entwined in the new Carpathian novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan,”the queen of paranormal romance” (J. R. Ward).

At long last you are truly back with us…

Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors — and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan…

Mother Earth called the ancients to witness your rebirth…

For this half-mage, half-Carpathian temptress, the ritual of awakening Zev to the council of warriors was the only way to save him. Locked away for his own protection, the time has now come for his rebirth, for his blood to stir with that of the ancient warriors before him. He has been assured by Branislava that their fates are entwined, that their spirits are woven together for eternity and that his new purpose in life is beyond imagining.

Now, with a blood-sworn vow of honor, mercy and endurance, and under the influence of a siren as bewitching as Branislava, Zev begins to wonder what his purpose is, what it means for the future of the Carpathians and what it is about his rebirth that he has to fear…

Dark Blood is a delightful addition to the spellbinding and evocative Dark Series. No one writes paranormal romance like Christine Feehan. She is truly an amazing author and just keeps coming up with terrific story lines. I just could not put this book down. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will not want it to end. I was entranced from start to finish. I have always found it so easy to get lost in her books because she pays such close attention to detail it feels like I am right there beside her characters. I would recommend this series all day long!

The alliance between the Carpathians and the Lycans is fragile. If they can not come to an agreement war is emanate. As old enemies surfaces, they are all in for the fight of their lives against an enemy that is beyond evil.

Zev has sworn an oath to protect his people the Lycans. Always alone and always fighting for his kind. Until he lays eyes on Branislava of the Dragonseekers. For the first time he longs for more. Branislava and her sister Tatijana spent most of their lives tortured and trapped in ice in the form of dragons in their father the High Mage Xavier’s ice cave. After being rescued years earlier she never expected to find her lifemate. She longed to be free for centuries but all that changes when she meets Zev Hunter. He awakens dreams and desires in her she thought she would never have. Together they both find a fiery passion and love that will last a life time if only they can survive the coming storm headed their way.
Zev is an elite hunter and has always respected his leaders, followed their orders and never doubted the judgements met out until now. He is torn between loyalty to his kind but knowing that they are wrong and are resistance to change. Zev was on the brink of death when Bronnie tied her soul to his and he is now a Carpathian-Lycan mix blood. He is a Guardian not the evil and deadly Sange rau as the Lycans want to believe. As things from the past collide with the future they all must come together for the battle of a lifetime. Zev finds out that there is more to his past than he could ever begin to imagine. Bronnie and Tatijana will face their darkest fears and the greatest evil there will ever be.
5 STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND!

Happy Release Day ~ Wild Need by Donna Grant ~ Review & Giveaway!

wildneed

 

WNeed-177x279In this third thrilling story in the Chiasson series, New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant delivers a fiery tale about a man who embraces his heritage and a woman trying to escape evil.

STALKED BY DEATH…

Davena Arcineaux would like nothing more than to put her past of tragedy and magic behind her and stop running. Maybe even find a great guy to share her life with and start a family. But an evil Voodoo priestess who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Davena has tracked her to Lyons Point. And time has run out for Davena.

FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL…

Brave, protective, Beau Chiasson was prepared to be live his life alone, but when fate puts the lovely Davena in his path, he realizes that there has been a part of him missing that only she can complete. Engaged in the biggest fight of his life, Beau must not only save the parish from evil, but also win Davena’s heart – if he can keep them both alive.

As always another marvelous read by the talented Donna Grant. Fast Paced & Action Packed. Sexy & Seductive. Those are just a few of the many wonderful ways to describe Wild Need. I love this series and all the characters in it. I was hooked from the beginning and stayed up late into the night because I just couldn’t put it down! I love reading stories set in Louisiana because there is so much history and magic there. The Chiasson Brothers are just too awesome! They are loving, compassionate and major bad asses! Swoon worthy for sure! They have all sworn to protect the bayous from all kinds of things that go bump in the night. For years the hope of having a family was almost lost. How could they even explain or hope for someone to understand the life they live. Not to mention being with any of the brothers could lead to certain death. It will take strong and persistent women with a backbone of steel to face what lies ahead with their men.

Beau has watched several of his brothers find their other halves. He longs for the same but he is afraid for the past repeating itself and losing her to the monsters they fight night after night. When he first laid eyes on Davena he fought the pull to be by her side but all that changes when he realizes that she is a target and running from an evil the likes they have never seen.  Davena just wants to have a normal life. A place to call home. She is tired of looking over her shoulder waiting for her past to catch up with her. Beau makes her want things she thought would never be possible. Maybe there could be a future together if she can only find the courage to take a stand and stop running. Tough decisions will be made and eye-opening secrets will be revealed but only if they can survive the wrath of a revengeful voodoo priestess.

donna_grant_new Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than forty novels and novellas spanning multiple genres of romance.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold novels and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as Druids Glen, The Shields, Royal Chronicles, Sisters of Magic, Dark Sword, Dark Warriors, and her new series, Dark Kings.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, four cats, three fish, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who loves to read and travel as much as she does.

17184930

A quest to root out a dangerous enemy of the Order sends ruthless former assassin Nathan from the violent streets of Boston to the glittering world of a Darkhaven beauty he cannot afford to crave. But seducing Jordana proves a temptation too great to resist, even while his duty to the Order may demand Nathan betray her and all she holds dear.

 

cooltext1129333415It’s hard to describe how amazing this book was. It had me from the beginning and didn’t let go. The series as a whole is fantastic and I swear every book just gets better!

I love Nathan and Jordana! Their chemistry is off the charts! He is a dominate alpha male and will make your heart and kindle melt. I was so excited to read his book with all he survived while in the hands of Dragos. It is going to take a very special girl to break down the stone walls around his heart.
Jordana is perfect for the job. She is soft and compassionate where Nathan is hard and unrelenting. They may be completely different but are exactly what each other need.

The Order is on the search for their new enemy the Atlanteans. How can you hunt for something you have no idea how to find. The Breed and Humans both, may be facing a war with an enemy they do not know how to defeat.

Nathan spent most of his brutal childhood forced to become a ruthless killer.
He is not used to kindness and emotions. All he has ever known changes with one passionate, earth shattering kiss. He can’t get her out of his head. Torn between his duty with The Order, she is a distraction he doesn’t need. Can he even be what she needs? Is he even capable of love?
Jordana Gates just wants to live her own life, she is tired of living the life her father wants her to live. Nathan brings out a reckless and passionate side of her, and she loves who she is when she is with him. As they are trying to sort out their newfound feelings, there are secrets from the past that may take the decision out of their hands.
This is a must read and a wonderful next installment in The Breed World.
You will not want to miss this one!

They are sexy,charming,alluring,wonderful,perfect…. I could go on for a while lol.
I was so engrossed in this book it was like I was right there on their journey with them. Full of action and all kinds of hotness!
Amazing doesn’t even do this book justice.
The Dragon Kings have been around since the beginning of time. They fought a brutal war against the Fae and the Kings won. The Kings have sworn an oath to protect mankind and even chose to protect them when they were killing their own dragons. They were forced to send their dragons to another realm and have little hope of ever seeing them again. For many millennia they thought the Dark Fae was under control but little did they know they have infiltrated the humans and seek to destroy and rule over all.
Kiril was sent to Ireland as a spy to find out what the Dark were planning and search for his friend a Light Fae that was taken by the Dark. With war on the horizon all bets are off.
Shara was born to be bad …. Literally as a Dark Fae she never quite measured up in her evil families eyes. They kept her locked up for centuries because she showed compassion and that is not tolerated in the Dark Fae world. She finally has a chance to redeem herself. All she has to do is seduce and help capture a Dragon King. That should be easy enough except she finds herself being seduced instead.
Kiril makes her long for things that she thought she could never have. How will he ever trust her. Her red eyes alone mark her as evil. Can two people who are supposed to be enemies find a love that will transcend everything. As they battle for their lives at every turn, Shara will have to find the strength to stand against her own kind and risk everything to prove she can be redeemed.
5 STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND!

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than forty NOVELS and novellas spanning multiple genres of romance.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the FAMILY taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant STORIES running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold NOVELS and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as Druids Glen, The Shields, Royal Chronicles, Sisters of Magic, Dark Sword, Dark Warriors, and her new series, Dark Kings.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, four cats, three fish, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who loves to read and travel as much as she does.

Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Rescued by Bailey Bradford

 

Title: Rescued
Author: Bailey Bradford
Genre: MM Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: March 1, 2010

Gabriel Staley was used to being an outcast in the small town of Shasta, Texas. More concerned with rescuing stray dogs from a cruel death at the hands of the local Sheriff, Gabe focuses on making a difference and standing up for what he believes is right. Mika Blackwell, a shape shifter who was banned from his pack, is new to the outcast status, and not adjusting very well. When Gabe heads out to rescue an injured wolf, he has no idea that his life is about to be eternally altered. As Mika watches the man approach him, he feels the universe tilt and realises that, while he may have lost his pack, he’s just found what every shifter longs for – his destined mate. Together, Gabriel and Mika must find their way and fight for their love-from confronting Mika’s former pack leader to stopping someone who tries to kill Gabe’s best friend, Todd. When Todd’s attacker comes after Gabe, Mika is determined to protect his mate at all costs.

This is actually the first time I have read a shapeshifter m/m novel so I was very interested to see how the author would infuse these two type of novels into one. Now I have read paranormal and I have read m/m novels and enjoyed them. This was definitely worth reading and is a quick and easy read!  I would have enjoyed to see a little more back story. You have two different men who comes from different backgrounds and learn that there is more to the world than being part of a pack or community. Gabe has a huge heart and has always looked after stray animals to care for them especially if they are being neglected or beaten. I think he had to have been my favorite character because of that. Mika has basically been left on his own after a life long knowledge of pack alliance all because of his choice of sex life and is now filled with a new world of meeting his possible soul mate. You would think that these two were doomed; but as the saying goes opposites attract. And these two definitely needed some lifting up in my opinion. Question is will they be able to overcome the obstacles that they will be facing and continue to grow with this relationship or will there be dilemma’s? I will have to say the author brought her own uniqueness to the this novel due to the paranormal m/m aspect and it worked out in my opinion. I am looking forward to reading more in this series in the future.

 

 

 

 

A native Texan, Bailey spends her days spinning stories around in her head, which has contributed to more than one incident of tripping over her own feet. Evenings are reserved for pounding away at the keyboard, as are early morning hours. Sleep? Doesn’t happen much. Writing is too much fun, and there are too many characters bouncing about, tapping on Bailey’s brain demanding to be let out. Caffeine and chocolate are permanent fixtures in Bailey’s office and are never far from hand at any given time. Removing either of those necessities from Bailey’s presence can result in what is know as A Very, Very Scary Bailey and is not advised under any circumstances.
