Firestorm ~ Now Available ~ Happy Release Day to Donna Grant! Hot Highlanders & Dragon Kings! Book 10!

 

SCORCHED BY DESIRE

Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a thousand-year-old secret. But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absent-minded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire…

When Dr. Faith Reynold stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears it comes from a dragon, she’s completely taken aback. A woman of science, there’s no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith’s curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She’s never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man―as well as the dragon within, in Firestorm, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

My mind is going in so many different directions right now and I love it! You know you are hooked on a series when you can’t stop theorizing about what all could happen and what you want to happen! Things are never boring in the ever-changing world of the Dragon Kings and boy are they changing! Faith and Dmitri are off the charts! I’m not kidding they were combustible! They made a perfect couple! I love Faith and her silly laid back attitude! She even gives him a nickname! Dmitri, the serious Dragon King of the Whites, Dmitri a nickname!

Faith Reynolds is an archeologist and was drawn to the Isle of Fair, where she discovers the skeletal remains of a dragon hidden in a cave! The Dragon Kings are surprised because they destroyed any evidence that they existed eons ago when they were forced to send away their dragons. So Dmitri is sent to destroy the bones before they get into the wrong hands. They have many enemies that would love to use them against them by proving to the world that Dragons exist! Dmitri wasn’t expecting to find the beautiful Faith. Even though he has a dislike for humans, there is something about Faith that is different. He doesn’t just desire her body but her mind, her soul. He wants it all with her. As they grow closer a new enemy emerges with the destruction of the Kings in mind that will make you rethink everything that’s happened from the very beginning! Their fight with the Dark Fae and Ulrik may be nothing compared to this enemy!
The Kings are in for the battle of their lives!

Coming August 2nd! Dark Carousel ~ Christine Feehan ~ Review!

cover-1In the new Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a woman falls prey to the seductive allure of the past—and a vampire warrior’s intoxicating embrace…

The moment Charlotte Vintage walks into his club, Tariq Asenguard’s blood is set on fire. The ancient Carpathian had given up hope of finding his lifemate, but now he will do anything to make Charlotte his own. What Tariq doesn’t know is that Charlotte is using herself and her best friend as bait—to try to draw out the bloodthirsty killers who have already murdered Charlotte’s brother and mentor.

Charlotte is familiar with Tariq. Not only is he one of the richest and most eligible bachelors in the city, but he’s also a renowned collector of old carousel horses, which Charlotte restores. Their shared passion opens Charlotte up to trusting him with her life and with the desire she can no longer control. But it also makes her vulnerable to a centuries-old curse that will unite her and Tariq in a war against the enemies of humans and Carpathians alike…

As always another great installment to the thrilling and enchanting Carpathian World! The Dark Series just keeps getting better! I love how Ms. Feehan is keeping the series fresh and modern but still swirled with the old world Carpathian men we all know and love!

Sexy, powerful, collector of ancient carousel horses Tariq Asenguard is well known for his nightclubs all over the world in which he hopes to draw in his lifemate. He is dark, dangerous, and deadly but has never given up hope of finding her. He has also devoted his long life to battling the vampires that seek to destroy anything that is good in the world.  Tariq is different from the other Carpathians, by embracing life among humans and realizing that his race has to learn to adapt because their enemies becoming more cunning by the day.
Charlotte Vintage is on the run and desperately trying to survive with enemies at every turn. When her brother is murdered she is left to raise her young niece. Charlie and her best friend are drawn back to the states and want nothing more than to find the enemies stalking them so they can have their lives back. Finding Tariq was more than she could ever hope for in life. For the first time she feels safe and that she has a home.
As Tariq’s emotions are returned he can truly feel the fatherly love and devotion for the orphaned  children in his care. He finally has his family and he will stop at nothing to see all the threats against them are gone. The same vampire that tortured his children in the past, are the same ones hunting his lifemate. He will do everything in his power to destroy the evil that is stalking his family.

Charlotte not only has the love of a lifetime, she has found the children of her heart. She wants nothing more than to cherish, love and help heal their tortured souls.
The vampires have grown even more powerful, vile, and cruel. They will stop at nothing to get their hands on Charlie and her children. The ancient hunters must come together to keep them safe. Things are changing for the Carpathian people. No one is safe. Not even humans, both men and women with psychic abilities are hunted. An ancient curse is seeking to destroy and fuel an evil the likes they have never seen. The future is ever changing and if they don’t defeat this new threat the world will never be the same again.

I’m absolutely ecstatic and can barely stand the wait until we get to see one of the ancients from the monastery find his lifemate!! That will for sure be a sight to see!

*New Release* Allegiance of Honor ~ Nalini Singh ~ Q&A about what’s next for the Psy/Changeling World!

allegiance-of-honor-185x300 Book 15: the Psy/Changeling series


The “unparalleled romantic adventure”* of Nalini Singh’s New York Times bestselling series continues as a new dawn begins for the Psy-Changeling world…

The Psy-Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: Old enemies. New allies. Wary loners.

But a century of distrust and suspicion can’t be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment. As rival members vie for dominance, chaos and evil gather in the shadows and a kidnapped woman’s cry for help washes up in San Francisco, while the Consortium turns its murderous gaze toward a child who is the embodiment of change, of love, of piercing hope: A child who is both Psy…and changeling.

To find the lost, protect the vulnerable—and save Trinity—no one can stand alone. This is a time of loyalty across divisions, of bonds woven into the heart and the soul, of heroes known and unknown standing back to back and holding the line. But is an allegiance of honor even possible with traitors lurking in their midst?

*Publishers Weekly

author_interviewNalini Singh on the future of the Psy-Changeling series
Is Allegiance of Honor the end of the Psy-Changeling series?

No, it’s not. 🙂 I ADORE this world and the characters and I have so many Psy-Changeling stories yet to tell. (I’ve often joked that I’ll be writing this series until I’m ninety-eight!)
Where do you see the Psy-Changeling world going from here?  Who is the next book about?

(Slightly spoilery answer to follow if you’re just starting the series).

Allegiance of Honor sets up a lot of possibilities for the future. There are many avenues I could take. However, for me, this arc is all about what happens not just to the Psy, but to the world, now that Silence has fallen and all the rules have changed.

We’ve had the immediate aftermath books, both of which focused on the Psy race (Shield of Winter & Shards of Hope), but what about the wider long-term future? Because Silence existed for a reason. The Psy still have these incredible abilities that have the potential to drive them murderously insane, and the world is still a fractured triumvirate. And there are players about whom we know very little, like the falcons and BlackSea.

As for who’s book is next, I’m not ready to announce it yet because I want to be certain this character is ready – but I think you’ll be pleased. 😉

3979f-excerpt

Excerpt from Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Lucas had had to chase Naya around the aerie at bedtime last night—her walk might still be a little shaky, but she was a rocket when it came to crawling. Dressed only in a diaper, she’d laughed uproariously and said a loud, firm “No” each time Lucas caught her and put her in her crib.
After which she’d clamber out—she’d figured out how to escape a month earlier—and the game would begin again. Of course, since Lucas was a cat, he’d been having just as much fun as their daughter. Sascha, meanwhile, had sat in the living room with a cup of hot chocolate and just indulged in the sight of her mate playing with their cub.
She’d had to pretend to be stern when Naya ran over and pleaded her case with loud sounds and wild gesticulations of her hands. “No, Naya,” she’d said, biting her tongue in an effort not to laugh. “It’s time for bed. Go with Papa.”
At which point, Naya had growled at her, eyes sparkling with mischief.
And Sascha had cracked, laughing so hard she’d had to put down her hot chocolate before she spilled it. Lucas had shaken his head as Naya plopped down on her diaper-covered butt and joined in, clapping her hands at having made her mommy laugh. “No discipline.” Lucas had mock-growled at her before picking up their misbehaving baby. “And you”—a growly nuzzle that made Naya laugh harder and pat his stubbled cheek—“time for bed.”
He’d finally got her to sleep—by walking around with her pressed up against his bare chest.
Today, their cub was playing in the living area just outside the kitchen nook. Sascha had locked the aerie door to ensure Naya wouldn’t undo the latch and go out onto the balcony, and Lucas had childproofed the entire main area of the aerie, so Naya was free to roam as she liked. A lot of the time she practiced her walking skills. And no matter how often she fell down, she started back up again after a little break.
Stubborn, determined baby.
Peeking out from the kitchen, Sascha found her concentrating on stacking the colored alphabet blocks Faith and Vaughn had given her as a gift. Beside her sat a more than slightly ragged wolf plush toy, aka “The Toy That Shall Not Be Named.” Hawke had given that to Naya when she was a newborn, and it remained her favorite snuggle toy, much to her father’s despair.
Though Lucas did enjoy it when Naya went leopard on the toy, growling and “fighting” with the wolf. Then he’d smile and say, “That’s my girl.”

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated frequently).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

Coming Soon! *New Series* Shadow Rider #1~ Christine Feehan ~ Review

27209430Shadow Rider: The #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance”* is back with a sexy new series starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret…

Whether it’s fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he’s not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses—both legitimate and illegitimate.

While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone—until now…

With little left to her name, Francesca Cappello has come to Chicago in hopes of a new life. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of a man with primal hunger in his eyes, driven to claim her as his to protect and to please. And if he discovers her secret, it could ruin her…

Release Date: June 28, 2016

Christine Feehan has done it again! A great start to a thrilling new series! I want a Ferraro of my very own! Whew! This was one scorching hot book! The chemistry between Stefano and Francesca was off the charts! I am also counting down the days for the next one!

Many think the untouchable Ferraro family are criminals that are above the law but they are something all together different. More lethal. For hundreds of years their family have protected the innocent. They are assassins that make right the wrong and seek justice for evil.
Stefano is the leader of the Ferraro family and can be called many things. Tall, dark and handsome. Intense, loyal to a fault, and most of all deadly. He is a shadow rider trained in lethal combat from an early age. He is able to ride the shadows and slip in and out unnoticed. The perfect assassin.

The Ferraro’s are well-known for the spot light. It’s not unusual to see them have women on each arm, until Francesca Capello walks into their lives and everything changes. For the first time Stefano’s siblings Vittorio, Ricco, Giovannie, Taviano, and their sister Emmanuelle all have hope for a future. They see their brother’s connection and the powerful drawl of finding their true soulmate. Shadow riders are rare and often they are forced to marry to continue their line out of obligation instead of love. Now they are given hope of finding the one rider that their shadow recognizes and the chance of having more than just duty rule their lives.

When Stefano’s shadow touches Francescas he knows she is the one and he will do anything to have her. He has put all of himself in dealing out justice to those that deserve it that he has lost a part of himself, but Francesca fills that space and brings laughter back to his dark life.
Francesca is homeless and on the run from a killer. Making a new start in Chicago is her last hope. Last thing she needs is to get involved with a man like Stefano Ferraro. He is scary as hell but when he touches her, he ignites a fire that refuses to be put out. For the first time since her life turned into a nightmare, she feels safe when she is in his arms. After all her time running, the past has finally caught up with her. The Ferraro family is working to give her the justice she deserves, but with enemies all around seeking to destroy them. Francesca is having a hard time trying to stay alive!

**I know a lot of fans will want to know this and are concerned about the hero being to harsh because Aleksei from Dark Promises was very, very dominate.**
I think Stefano was the right amount of everything! Sweet and dominate. . He is in no way abusive and doesn’t do anything that Francesca didn’t love. He likes control and Francesca doesn’t mind giving it to him. She actually has him wrapped around her finger lol
I think this book had more sex in it than her Dark Series! Stefano may like it rough in bed but out of it he is a complete sweetheart with a heart of gold!

Two words… Game Changer! Dark Alpha’s Demand is a spellbinding and evocative installment to Donna Grant’s Dark World!! You will fall madly in love with Talin and Neve. I know I did!
I didn’t read, I devoured this book! No one writes like Donna Grant. All of her stories are unique, the details she puts into every chapter brings everything to life.
My mind is reeling with theories and I can’t stop thinking about this book! I was hooked from the beginning and by the end my head was spinning! So much happens! Rhi is a huge part of this one! So things are never boring when she is around!

The Reaper are feared and whispered about among all Fae. They were chosen by Death after suffering an ultimate betrayal. Death is judge and jury. They are her executioners.
Talin has orders to gather all the information he can in the Light Fae court. While doing so he meets his beautiful Neve. For the first time in all his thousands of years of being a Reaper he has met the one women that he would do anything for. Even though his deepest desire is to have her by his side, for her to know his true self would mean her death.
No one can know who the Reapers are.
Neve has lived her life according to the obligations of her family. When she first met Talin she knew he was something more. She longs to have a future with him but, he has secrets and another part of his life she knows nothing about. As their time together grows more intense, things heat up and their old enemy Bran seeks to destroy all that Talin holds dear.
Circumstances are not on their side, but together they must face Bran and his army of Dark Fae to save them all, before it’s too late.
The Reaper’s have a long hard journey ahead and there are many things that have yet to be revealed, but what does happen in this book will leave you speechless!

Talin pushed open the thirty-foot double doors and entered…Hell.

The court of Queen Usaeil was a gorgeous one. All around him, Light Fae with their midnight hair and silver eyes – their beauty a trait of being a Fae – danced, laughed, and plotted.

He paused steps into the massive room and surveyed the huge chamber. Everything glittered – per Usaeil’s demand. The decorations were white and gold, with splashes of vivid, breathtaking flowers in various colors everywhere.

There wasn’t an inch of the Queen’s castle that didn’t bespeak wealth and beauty. Add in the Light Fae, and the brilliance made it difficult to gaze upon.

Even for a Fae.

But then again, Talin wasn’t just any Light Fae. He was a Reaper – chosen by Death to be an executioner for all Fae. Except no one knew his true identity.

If he wanted to ensure that everyone lived, then they could never know.

Talin walked through the crowd gathered, in the hopes that Usaeil might make an appearance. The Fae, as a general rule, were a race of beings that cared only about themselves.

There were a few exceptions – Rhi, for instance. But the Light Fae who’d once had a well-documented affair with a Dragon King was another matter entirely.

The Fae around him now had no idea their queen pretended to be a very well known American movie star. So they wouldn’t know she was on location shooting her next film and wouldn’t be in attendance that night.

Then again, the Fae didn’t care. Their thoughts were on something else entirely.

Talin paused when the whispers reached him. Reapers. They whispered the word as if speaking it would bring them to life. Their voices were filled with fear, panic.

Dread.

And they should feel such emotions. Every Fae was subject to Death’s judgment, be they Light or Dark.

*New Release* SMOKE AND FIRE ~ Donna Grant ~ Dragon Kings #9 ~ Review!

Smoke-and-Fire-171x279She wanted to touch him. There had always been something about being in his arms that made her feel as if she could tackle anything and the world wouldn’t dare get in her way…

SWORN TO PROTECT
A dragon shapeshifter and a computer mastermind, Ryder is sent to guard Glasgow after a devastating Dark attack. But when memories of an explosive affair come back to him-in the flesh-Ryder cannot help but want to protect the woman who haunts his dreams. Even if means shifting into the dragon he was never supposed to reveal…

DRIVEN TO DESIRE
Kinsey could never get enough of Ryder. His every touch only left her wanting more. But now that she’s seen him in his true form, Kinsey’s world is rocked to the core. She knows that to stay-and feel-alive, she must be with Ryder. But is Kinsey’s passion worth the risk of danger that comes with being a part of Ryder’s dark and fierce world?

324c7-my2breview

Ryder and Kinsey! They couldn’t be more perfect for each other! Both are computer geniuses. Their chemistry is off the charts. Angst and unrequited love galore! Secrets, lies, and more mysteries. I think at one point I wanted to smack my jelly donut eating Ryder! Lol! I felt a roller coaster of emotions with this one. I wanted too just scream at them both and say quit being so stubborn and admit that you love each other! I have so many theories running through my head and even still have no idea what the future is going to hold with the Dragon Kings.
Kinsey fell madly in love years ago but Ryder shattered her heart and left her without a word. Then one night in Edinburgh years later all hell breaks loose and the streets are littered with death. Kinsey comes face to face with the man she thought she knew and is terrified yet feels betrayed. Nothing in the world is as it seems. So she did what any sane women would do. She ran from him. Even after all those years apart as soon as she sees him, all the sparks and emotions she has denied and pushed deep for so long come rushing back full force. Her hurt from his rejection and fear of the unknown have left thick bitter walls around her heart. Ryder will have to work hard to earn her trust and start trying to fix the hurt he caused her. While being at Dreagan, Kinsey realizes that it could have been possible for them to have the future that they had always talked about together, and it was his choice not to tell her the truth about himself. He could have come back for her, but he didn’t.

Years ago before any of the Dragon Kings had even known it was possible to find their mate, Ryder met his Kinsey. He longed to have a future with her but as enemies tried to expose them as dragons, he left behind the only women that he had ever loved and it tore him to pieces. He left her to keep her safe, but little did he know it didn’t matter his enemies where closer than he realized. When he is given hope of having a second chance with her his greatest fear of all happens … she runs from him.

The Dragon Kings are in the middle of a war with the Fae and trust doesn’t come easy. Humans are already watching their every move at Dreagan and Kinsey’s arrival is very suspicious. Another betrayal could very well be the end to the Kings. Far more is going on than any of them realize. Rhi is finally finding her some much deserved happiness but it may just bring her more trouble and more pain in the end. Their enemies are close and seem to always be one step ahead. Ryder will have to let go of his fear and learn to trust Kinsey, even though the evidence looks damning. Torn from his loyalty to his fellow Kings and the love he once let go, he may realize too late her innocence and lose his chance at love with her forever.

Dark Promises ~ Dark Series #29 ~ Christine Feehan ~ Review

coverLovers challenge destiny and risk their lives in the new Carpathian novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance.”*

Gabrielle has had enough of battles, of wars, of seeing the man she’s engaged to nearly lose his life when it isn’t even his fight. Once Gary was a gentle and very human researcher. Now he’s a fearless and lethal Carpathian warrior with the blood of an ancient lineage coursing through his veins—a man Gabrielle still needs and dreams of with every breath she takes. All she wants is a life far away from the Carpathian mountains, far from vampires and the shadows cast by the crumbling monastery that hides so many terrible secrets. But Gabrielle soon learns that promises made in the dark can pierce the heart like a dagger.

And she isn’t the only one in search of answers in the corners of the unknown…

Trixie Joanes has come to the Carpathian mountains in search of her wayward granddaughter, fearing that she has been lured there by something unspeakable. Instead, Trixie has stumbled onto the path of a desperate woman on the run. And they’re all fated for the lair of a mysterious ancient with revenge in his soul and the undying power to make bad dreams come true.

****** This review does have some SLIGHT SPOILERS but if you read the book blurb,you can read between the lines of what is going on in the book. It is just elaborating on that. ******

Wow! That is the best word to describe Dark Promises! This is truly Christine Feehan at her finest! I was an emotional wreck while reading this one! I’m not kidding! Big wet tears! I never seen it coming! My mind was screaming and crying, “Why!! How can this be”!! 
It’s completely not where I thought their journey was headed but I grew to love the new spin, and I can see why things developed as they did. My heart hurts for all the Carpathians that have yet to find their lifemate, but Gary is just tearing me up inside!
Gabrielle has loved Gary Jansen for a long time. He made her feel safe when her world was falling apart. When she was turned Carpathian to save her life years ago, she put her human dreams to the side to help research solutions to their problems. She has held on to her humanity and hasn’t accepted her new life. She doesn’t like change and nothing will ever be the same again. 
Now that Gary is fully Carpathian, their should be nothing to stand in their way of finally being together. Except, something neither of them can control … fate.
Even though your heart will be breaking at one point, keep reading. I can understand why it all changed. Gabrielle and Gary may end up leading separate paths but he will always be in her heart.
Aleksei is one of my favorite Carpathian males yet! 
He is ancient, dominate, deadly and on the very edge of darkness but has chosen the honorable path. When he hears his lifemate cry for another male, all bets are off and he succumbs to his dark side. He has endured for so long just to find she loves another. He has no intention of sharing any part of her, and he goes extreme alpha male on her! He is exactly the kind of man Gabrielle needs and he is determined to show her all the ways they can be great together.
 Aleksei ignites a hunger in Gabrielle that she never dreamed was possible. 
She is feeling so many different emotions so fast, but she knows Aleksei is what she needs. He is who, she wants to spend her life with. She is tormented over how things ended up with Gary and she wants to make it right with him but also not hurt Aleksei in the process.
 Together they have a lot to over come and there are enemies seeking to destroy their newfound hope.
 We also have Trixie to brighten things up! 
She was awesome! Hilarious! I loved her! Vampire hunting kit and all! I liked seeing her over come her insecurities about her age and her lifemate was perfect for her. I really loved seeing their relationship grow! If anyone deserved happiness it was her!
Teagan, Trixie and Gabrielle are fast friends and together they will give hope to all the Carpathians!
I loved every minute of this book and hated to see it end! The thrilling blend of dark passion and all consuming love will leave you breathless! Again I will say this is Christine Feehan at her finest!
I received an ARC for an honest review
