Guardian of the Realm Thursday Request


       Guardian of the Real   Krystal McLauglian               ARC copy from author          4 star****

The Darkness
Taken when she was just seven years old, Esmeralda has very little memory of her life before the Realm. Power has always been her constant companion, protection has been her only goal, and acceptance by the magic she guards has always been her only wish. That is until the darkness comes... and with it comes the one person who can give her the greatest power of all... love.

The Light
Losing his mother at a young age, Eric has always been the responsible one; the strong one. He'd had to be. His sister Kaitlyn had needed him. Now with Kaitlyn missing he is thrown into a world of secrets and deception. A world that until this moment he knew nothing about... a world that he is more a part of than he could have ever known. With darkness descending and time running out, can he become the man he is destined to be? Or will he fail and lose the girl he has come to love?

The Realm
Beyond the doorway is a World of Enchantment and Myth. A world that once entered will grant you any wish your heart may desire... but only if you can get beyond... the Guardian.                                                 

     My Review- I got this ARC copy from the author and it was a joy to read! No Tinkerbell -story here in fairy land(the Realm) is a land of magic of both dark and light no no mortal may enter. Without giving to much away this story is the story of the guardian but so much more. Its a story of finding your true self and dreams in a place of magic. Essie our guardian is questioning her worthiness of guarding the realm - and her magic. Eric is looking for his sister taken to the realm by the fairies and marked to be the next guardian But a bigger plot is happening in the background there is a battle between light and dark -human and fairy world and all our players are involved in this story- But you will have to read the book to see the out come-In this modern fairy tale - a handsome prince finds love and  a guardian 's life is changed on a wish!!!!      lisa

Tender is the Knight

                     Tender is the Knight      Jamaica Layne        From NetGalley      31/2 stars

Assembly-line forewoman and Dayton, Ohio resident Lisa Marie Smith’s life just got a lot more medieval. Lisa’s co-worker and best friend, Pegeen Palmer forcibly drags her to an event showcasing Pegeen’s latest hobby---the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a living history organization that specializes in the Middle Ages.

My Review -from NetGalley!  Tender is the Knight was a cute book but at times I got lost among the SCA/ Renaissance theme story. If you happen to be a fan of this period of time or a Renaissance Fair Fan you should check this book out! Its well written  and you will love all the background information about the SCA. A fun read and a good love story!

Once Burned

   Jeaniene Frost        Once  Burned      A Night Prince Novel       4 star  

tShe's a mortal with dark powers...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude...until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire...

He's the Prince of Night...

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all—but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula. Vlad's ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him—a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames                 

My Review----- Once Burned is the first in the Night Prince Novel series -this is a great start to a new series and look forward to reading many more books by this author. This was a total new twist on the classic Vampire  story. The original vampire Vlad is so hot he can control fire and Leila can control electricity from touch. A power couple for a powerful story !

Ryalda, the Element heroes of old, leak from the void and bring with them beauty, desire...and destruction.

Ryalda--the Element heroes of old--leak from the dark void of nothingness, Ghen, and bring with them beauty, desire...and destruction.

Air Element, Erion aches to feel the heat of Kenna's emerging fire. However, merging his wind with the woman on the cusp of transformation comes with great risk. A risk he's unwilling to take. But with a male Fire Element intent on enslaving Kenna, Erion reconsiders his vow. To protect her, they must merge, but he will not bond his wind with her fire.

Aspiring glassblower, Kenna Lang finally has a showing that could launch her career—with Drakaura, blown glass replicas of the dragons of her dreams. A chance meeting with Erion ignites an attraction hotter than the furnace used to blow glass. Drawn into an erotic joining, Kenna is born into fire. Now her world is going up in flames.

Merged as Air and Fire, their power is unimaginable. However, both are unprepared for the emotions awakened by their joining and the timeless battle waged against them. Only together can they defeat their enemies, both Element and Dragon, and escape the darkness of Ghen.      

My Review-  First thing this book is to short only 164 pages would have loved more from this great writing team. This is a total shift in paranormal to Elemental gifts as in Fire  merged with Air -and can I say there some Dragons thrown in too.A great start to a new series I hope because I would like to read more from this series -felt like this was only a glimpse into this new series.

The Chieftain

                                 Margaret Mallory  The Chieftain       Grand Central Pub.      Feb 26
                                              Return of the Highlander #4

Connor, chieftain of the MacDonalds of Sleat, holds the fate of his people in his hands. Rival clans are plotting to take over his lands, and duty determines whom he will fight, trust . . . even marry. Seeking guidance, Connor turns to Ilysa, a young lass with the gift of foresight, who reveals an approaching danger-and a passion that burns only for him. But the warrior must make a powerful marriage alliance, and Ilysa's bloodline is far too humble. 

With her powers to heal and see evil where others cannot, beautiful Ilysa dresses plainly, speaks softly, and loves her chieftain from afar. Yet when Connor finally stokes the embers of desire that have so long burned within her, Ilysa feels bliss unlike any she's ever known. Now as he is forced to place duty before happiness, Ilysa senses Connor is in grave peril. Can she find a way to prove she is the woman he needs by his side?

Review-     Copy From Net Galley
       Another great Highland Historical book with all of the action of the Scottish Highland! This is a great book filled with passion and action of Scotland. Where a marriage contract was a treaty of peace and men to fight than of love. But this couple found true love in the mist of battles for land and people. 
   Not my usual read but after this -more Highlanders please!!!   Lisa

Celtic Fury

In 14th Century Scotland amid Highland Feuds and Clan division, rugged men fight for their birthrights and their place in history. The MacCollum and Campbell Clans are bitter enemies, especially for the son of the Laird MacCollum, Rory, the fabled and lethal Wolf of the Highlands. When his betrothed is killed at the hands of his enemies, Rory has sworn vengeance on all named Campbell. Darkness pervades this warrior to the point of poisonous destruction. Each day the darkness creeps forth, changing him and em-battling his psyche. Each day, the blackness is becoming harder and harder to quell. Only Love can save him from the impending darkness, but his heart is walled.

After years of self enforced exile in England, Rory returns to Scotland to seek his own destiny. On his journey, Rory aids and rescues a young woman who is broken and battered from a terrible accident. Rory knows he has to save her. In saving her, is it possible to save himself? His heart gradually opens, only to find this woman is his most sworn and hated enemy. Amid lies and betrayal, can Brielle’s love save Rory from the Darkness that seeps through his veins? Can her love prevent him from the self destructive course he has been destined to run   

My Review-This one was also posted free the other day-Celtic Fury by Ria Cantrell. This is a little unusual than my normal reading library but who can miss a Celtic warrior story. Great first book in the series about the Highland feud and boundary disputes and the men and women who lived it. A great historical book set between highland enemies and how true love conquers all things!    4 out of 5

Taken by Storm

                                   Taken by the Storm Cyndi Friberg "Ontarian Chronicles, Book One." When civil war threatens the lives of her twin daughters, the High Queen of Ontariese has no choice but to hide them from the enemy. She opens an interdimensional portal and transports the royal twins to separate locations on a faraway world. Unaware of her royal roots or her alien origins, Charlotte spends the first thirty years of her life on Earth. Believing herself human, she has no idea that her destiny is to save an alien world from the ravages of war. Or to find sensual fulfillment in the arms of a man who can control even the strands of his hair. Tal, a powerful shape-shifting mage, comes to Earth on a desperate quest to find a mysterious woman before his nemesis destroys her. Little does Tal know the "helpless Earthling" he's come to save is the key to peace on his war-torn world.or that he will long to have her, take her, make her his. "Note: This book was previously published elsewhere under the same title and has been re-edited for Cerridwen Press. 

My Review- I got this the other day as a free read. I can say that I really enjoyed the book and will put the next book on TBR list.                                                                            
 The premise that the High Queen sends her daughter to earth for safely and later rescued by the Ortariese to help stop the war is a great story. Our heroin is a lawyer and strong women even though she finds herself on a strange planet. Tal our Mage is a hot alien and both characters find true bonding love. Charlotte is not frustrated by living on a strange plant -she accepts her fate and goes about changing the planet for the best .

Wait until Dark

Name: Big John Wallace
Rank: Staff Sergeant, Chief Mechanic and Gunner
Mission: To serve and protect his crew and country.

Name: Connie Davis
Rank: Sergeant, Flight Engineer, Mechanical Wizard
Mission: To be the best...and survive.

Two Crack Mechanics, One Impossible Mission

Being in The Night Stalkers is Connie Davis's way of facing her demons head-on, but mountain-strong John Wallace is a threat on all fronts. Their passion is explosive, but their conflicts are insurmountable. When duty calls them to a mission no one else could survive, they'll fly into the night together—ready or not. .                          

My Review: This is a great book with lots of action and adventure. I was able to get this from NetGalley and this was a great read!  Yes-this is a romance but so much more -its a book about military life and how it affects our families. Some reviews have been critical on not enough sex and romance -but I found this a great change of pace. Definitely if you are interested in the men and women that sure our arm forces!       4 out of 5

Lycan unleaded!

Review –This is the 3 book in the series –From the Files of the Otherworld Enforcement Agency set in the Chicago police department. I must say that I did not read the other two books but I have put them on my TBR list in the future. I enjoyed the story that takes place in Chicago after the others have joined the police force as the Chicago Paranormal Unit... Astrid is a sensitive working with the police solving cases and in this book her partner is a Lycan named Mason. There is real chemistry between the two characters as they solve the murders of vampires in Chicago. Is this murder a family power struggle or more is going on in the vampire community? Mason and Astrid find the answer to this and so much more. Mason and Astrid are great characters very likable even though they each bring their own baggage to the relationship. As a reader I found myself rooting for them and their relationship.
  My only complaint is the shortness of the book. After I finished I wanted more pages and information.  This book came from NetGalley and also posted in Bittenbyparanormal blog postTitle-Lycan Unleased Book 3

Embers Curse

Gena D Lutz    ---Prime Wolf #1

Review  4 out  of 5 stars                                                                                   

For Prime-Werewolf Ember Stilwell, life has been far from normal. Decades ago, a vengeful Witch cursed her Pack, leaving the women of her line incapable of feeling love. When an organized group of immortal killers begin to stalk and capture wolves from her pack, she sets out on a path fraught with danger. Just when it seems the world as she knows it will be changed forever, she meets Collin, an Alpha Werewolf with a body built for sin. As her heart begins to heal, she comes to find that the demons of her past are not nearly as dangerous as the nightmares she will be forced to face in her future. Can finding her true love conquer all? Or will the ability to feel for the first time be overshadowed by losing everything else she holds

Review - Every once in a while you find a great book from the many of free books posted everyday. This book is a great start to a series about Primal wolves. It was great to see a strong alpha women and a strong alpha male together. The cast of characters kept my interest and was sorry when it ended. I was glad to see another book was planned in the series -because I wanted the story to continue. I am so glad I took a chance and downloaded this free book because now I have another favorite author and series.

Wolf with Benefits

Wolf with Benefits (Pride, #8)--------
    From NetGalley
         Review-     Another great book from Shelly Laurenston Pride Series, If you are a fan of this series you will not be disappointed. This book is fill with great shifters and wonderful funny characters. Our main characters are a Jackal and a Wolf  making a deal in Sibera for Bo team to play hockey. At home Toni's family of Jackals are causing trouble and getting in trouble with the law. Bring in the rest if the Smith pack and fur and excitement happens. A great -Fun Book!!!  Lisa


There’s nothing like a good-‘ol-boy wolf. And ace security expert Ricky Lee Reed serves, seduces, and protects with all the right moves…

Sure, Toni Jean-Louis Parker has to be the responsible oldest sister to a crazy-brilliant clan of jackal siblings. But now she’s cutting loose for some hot, sweaty, no-commitments fun—and the sexy, slow-talking, swift-moving predator assigned to keep her family safe is just the right thing to shapeshift her love life into overdrive. Trouble is, he’s starting to get all obsessive wolf on her every time he looks in her direction…

Getting serious about anyone isn’t in Ricky Lee Reed’s plans. Hell, even now he doesn’t really have a plan—outside of catching whomever is threatening this dangerously brilliant family. But the more he gets of Toni, the more he’s howling for her. And whatever it takes to convince her what they have is everything, well, this wily wolf is down for the sizzling chase…

Elven detective Saxon Kirby is under pressure to find out who left a gnawed body at a Las Vegas tourist attraction. He already knows what is responsible: a werewolf. The Keeper of the Vegas werewolves is supposed to control his charges, just as Keepers have kept vampires, shifters and other paranormal races in check for over a century. But the local Keeper is weak and there is nothing to stop the murderous wolf - except Saxon. Saxon's investigation leads him to Calleigh McGowan, a half-werewolf, half-Elven dancer who entrances him with her sensual moves and promise of carnal pleasure. She's a sexy distraction Saxon doesn't need - even if Calleigh has her own reasons for hunting down the rogue werewolf. But in order to catch the killer, they'll have to put their lives - and hearts - on the line. My Review -this was a free read from Heather Graham. This novella is the prequel to eThe Keeper Seris written about the keepers in various towns across the country.This book is taken place in Vegas and our keeper is over the wolf shifters in the city, People are being killed and missing from the wolf run casinos-Our detective is a hot Elven investing the murders with help from a wolf/elven hybrid dancer. Its a good book to start off a new interesting series, 3out 4

Monday, February 11, 2013

Keeper of the Moon I downloaded this book from NetGalley a good book with a twist on a familiar story. Girl meets boy -girl in trouble-our hero solves her problem and wins the fair maiden hand. This romance is very different-our leading lady is named Sailor a newly appointed Keeper of the Elven race in LA(but most the time out of work actress working tables) - is thrust into the politics of Elven society and solving a murder of 3 elevn women.They have all died from The Scarlet Pathogen which has affected Sailor also -among the mover and shaker of Hollywood is Shifter Keeper Declan who helps Sailor find the murder and find her place in Keeper society.This story has a host of characters and plenty of action to keep it interesting -a good read. 3 out of 5
First I would like to say that this is my first book in the -Cat Star Chronicles-series but after ready this book I will be putting the rest on my list-I downloaded this book from NetGalley not really familiar with the series. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the book was written and the Character development of participants .Not having read the other book no way took away the fantastic story Ms.Brooks crafted. So if like me start at number 9 and work your way back-or start at 1 and go forward- A little about the book- Sara Shield raises horses on a distance plant -our perfect girl next door who has a history of bad relationships. Our shifter is a Zetithian named Jerden who once owned a brothel and is one of the great lover. Not a perfect match but Ms.Brooks is able to take that starting point and craft a great book. Wildcat is a tender love story-a fun and passionate rump but most of all a story of two wounded souls finding each other.

Midnight Secrets is by Ella Grace. And I must confess I had not read anything by this author. It was a well written book with lots of twist and turns in its plot. A cast of characters that were well developed as the plot which made for an interesting book. A coming home novel with all the joys-anguish and pass problem of lost love and forgiveness. Throw in an old murder from the past and you have a good book. I can say that I did not figure out the murder till the end of the book. I would recommend this to all the contemporary romance readers out there .

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Another great book in the Midnight Breed series and still going strong. This was a wonderful book penned by the talented Lara Adrian. Her Midnight Breed series are always a must read on my list. Our two new Breed and Breedmate are wonderful characters and I noticed a new crop of warriors in the making. I can gladly say this book is finely crafted as her earlier books and that is a wonderful surprise for her fans. Ms. Adrian has always had a talent for crafting a story with a great plot -vivid characters and load of action. And this book lives up to its name and another great Breed novel is born.

A Howl for a Highlander by Terry Spears

Terry Spears -A Howl for a Highlander-another great book from Ms.Spear. The Highlander on the Caymen Island chasing a thief who stole money from the clan meets his mate a Texas botanist who is a wolf also - Couldnt be planned better if I wrote it myself- An Enjoyable read -with fun character who you were rooting for to win-Not only does he get the girl -he gets the clan money back-All tied up in sunny Caymen-Wish I was on vacation too.This book had everything I love-shifters-action -romance and a sunny location -a must read!

The Alpha,s Choice

Jacueline Rhoades            The Alpha's Choice         ( The Wolvers 2 )
Another $ star Read from Jacqueline Rhoades - This is the send book in the Wolvers book but  definitely a stand alone book! A great book with a strong spunky leading lady and a dashing alpha shifter- I think the first thing you will notice that both Charles and Katarina are perfect for each other and neither are your typical leading couple. This couple has faults and dreams like any other couple and nice to see our alpha is not the perfect alpha leader. Even through trials and trouble this is the perfect pair and fairy tales do come true!!!

Katarina Bennett stopped believing in fairytales a long time ago. Prince Charming doesn't exist. Careful planning is what makes dreams come true and that's what she's spent her adult life doing. Now those plans have fallen apart. She's lost everything; her fiancé, her job and her home.
Determined to make a new start, Kat takes a job as a governess and teacher for five orphaned children and finds herself in an old Gothic mansion in the middle of nowhere with people who aren't what they seem.
Charles Goodman is the Alpha of his wolver pack, the modern descendants of an ancient line of man/beasts who've hidden among the human race for centuries. Charles has his hands full with taking his pack in a new direction and dealing with dissention in the ranks and doubts about his own abilities to lead, but when he meets his feisty new employee, he begins to believe in a future he didn't think possible.
Together, Charles and Kat, Alpha and Mate, set out to prove all things are possible and fairytales do come true.

The Old Fashioned Alpha
