A choice was made. Now it’s time to reap the rewards…or suffer the consequences…


It was all happening according to plan. Rori chose power over love, and as a result, put himself in the running to be the next emperor of all vampires. Then someone threatened to expose his witch (along with all other paranormal creatures) to humans…unless he gave up his claim to the throne, that is.

That’s when everything fell apart.

The Council has no idea what Rori did to keep Divina safe, and if they find out, the consequences will be deadly. It’ll take all his power, connections, and the help of his loyal guard to protect everyone and everything he holds dear.

But with time running out and enemies circling, can Rori survive long enough to complete the prophecy and maybe—just maybe—get a second chance at true love while he’s at it?
The Vampire of the Prophecy by Victoria Jayne
(The Prophecy Trilogy, #3)

Rori has now put himself in position to be the emperor of all vampires, although it came at a cost. Has he chosen correctly? Has he become too full of himself or will a threat to Divina and all paranormal kind help him to prioritize what is truly important in life? Can he keep his power and save the witch? Everyone wants their cake, but to eat it, too…

THE VAMPIRE OF THE PROPHECY by Victoria Jayne could be my favorite of the series! Characters show another side to themselves, danger lurks behind the power and the threats are real. Ms. Jayne has provided just enough darkness, the right amount of twists around each corner and a whole lot of finagling to bring this one home in style! Prepare to be riveted to each page, to be kept guessing and to feel the tension throughout!

Definitely check out this trilogy! Victoria Jayne has a story to tell and she does it with style!

WANTED: MODERN WOMAN WHO APPRECIATES TRADITIONAL COURTSHIP WITH FANGS.

Greetings. My name is Prince Bozhidar, and I am an eight-hundred-year-old vampire.

Correction.

I am an eight-hundred-year-old, virile, confident, and very sexy vampire—so I’m told. I have wealth, looks, and everything an immortal man could ever want.

Well, except love. But no matter. I am not a one-neck sort of man.

Yet the virginal woman across the road sets my senses afire. And she needs my help with her family’s failing winery. My own is quite successful.

My honor demands I help this enchanting female, and when I do, my heart begins beating anew. She is my mate. Strangely, my gifts of seduction do not seem to work on her.

Perhaps I need to fit in with modern dating customs to win this modern woman.

And then there’s the small matter that she doesn’t believe in vampires.

There is no fighting destiny, sweet Stella. You will be mine.

Fanged Love by Kylie Gilmore & Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Warning: If you are looking for something dark and haunting...turn back now because it ain't here, babe!

In a word or two, hilariously quirky! In a few more words, silly, sexy and over-the-top cheesy in the best way!

FANGED LOVE by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and Kylie Gilmore puts an all-out assault on your funny bone. Prepare to want to roll your eyes, fan yourself and laugh out loud. A fun read that reads like a dog doing “zoomies” around the yard!

Tempting Miss Daisy by Tammy Andresen ( House of Devon, #7)


Tempting Miss Daisy
by Tammy Andresen

My rating: 5 stars

Series: House of Devon - Book 7
Publisher : Swift romance Publishing Inc. (October 2, 2020)
Genre: Historical Romance | Short Story
Print Length : 81 pages
Available from: Amazon

 

A match with a baron was beyond her wildest dreams…


Daisy knew where she stood in society. When her father landed in debtor’s prison, she was lucky to have a roof over her head and employment that kept her fed and clothed. At best, she might hope to one day meet a gentleman who’d overlook her lack of dowry, like her sister. But when the Baron of Hartwell visits her employer, his glances scorch and his touch ignites. But he’s so far about her station, she doesn’t even dare to dream.


She’s too tempting by half…


Miss Daisy Frank was not the sort of woman a baron considered for a bride. Yes, she was of the peerage, but after her father’s fall from grace she had no dowry, no prospects, and little chance of a good match. Except… she was also sweet, kind, and achingly beautiful. The sort of woman that might just soothe a man’s wounded soul.

Tempting Miss Daisy by Tammy Andresen
( House of Devon, #7)

Her father, a pastor, landed in debtor’s prison and left his daughters out in the cold, so to speak when a handsome duke took them in. Now Daisy is a tutor, hoping to make a match with any man who would have her. Along comes the Baron of Hartwell, purchasing a horse for his future bride and let’s just say, the rest is history!

TEMPTING MISS DAISY is the latest in Tammy Andresen’s short, yet romantic tales that provides the perfect level of sugar, sass and spice! As always, this tale has a start and a finish, no dangling cliffhangers and made for one of Ms. Andresen’s signature feel good reads!

No worries if you haven’t read the rest of the series, (I hadn’t), this brief story stands on its own just fine!

Amara by Tristan Hutchinson


Amara
by Tristan Hutchinson

My rating: 4 stars

Publisher : Eon Wolf Productions (May 21, 2020)
Genre: Paranormal Suspense
Print Length : 354 pages
Available from: Amazon

 

Detective Aaron Wolfe wakes up in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by foreboding darkness. As he makes his way through the dark town, using only the flashlight on his phone, he soon makes a gruesome discovery. The entire town has been slaughtered. Blood and body parts are scattered through the streets, the scent of primal fear and death lingers.As he tries to make sense of what has happened, he realizes a strange blanket of darkness blocks phones and other electronics from working. Unable to call for help, and scared of what being the only person left alive in a massacred town suggests, he leaves the shattered town to find his partner, Jaclyn Hunsacker. He and Jaclyn must work together, while navigating their complicated relationship, to solve the mystery of who laid waste to an entire town. If their investigation proves unsuccessful, Wolfe may never be able to clear his name as the main suspect of the murders.


Amara by Tristan Hutchinson 


Tristan Hutchinson’s AMARA touches on the macabre, the mysterious and the suspenseful as one man, a police detective, races against time to both clear his name and discover who or what has slaughtered an entire town.

Detective Aaron Wolfe awakes dazed and bewildered only to discover he not only doesn’t remember what happened to him, but he is surrounded by an entire town of maimed body parts, rivers of blood and no clues as to what happened. Caught in a “dead zone” in more ways than one, he seeks out his partner, Jaclyn and together they attempt to make sense of the unimaginable, even as another officer works to dump everything at Aaron’s feet.

I have to say, there is no “easy” follow-the-clues trail here. There is a constant feeling of something lurking in the shadows, something evil. Although I couldn’t actually understand some of the characters’ actions, it DID make the plot a lot more twisted and gave that feeling that the oncoming light was a freight train out of control. A little too much talk, sometimes too much detail in spots, sometimes not enough in others, all told, this IS one of those creepy reads that would make great Halloween reading!

Tristan Hutchinson has mastered the gory, the inconceivable and left me following the scattered breadcrumbs, only to discover that he did NOT leave an easy trail to follow, but one that made the journey well worth it.

Read an excerpt:

Was anyone watching?

Keith McDonald sat at the computer and glanced around the oil platform’s rec room, but the dozen or so workers were engrossed in watching the final game of a Ping-Pong match. He hesitated,
then hovered his cursor over the Send button. Clenching his teeth, he sent the emails. Maybe it was nothing, but if anyone could decipher the recording, it was Reid Dixon.

The back of his neck prickled, and Keith looked around again. The room felt stifling even with the AC cooling it from the May heat. He jumped up and headed for the door. He exited and darted into the shadows as two men strolled past. One was his suspect.

Keith stood on a grating suspended three thousand feet over the water and strained to hear past the noise of machinery. The scent of the sea enveloped him, and the stars glimmered on the water surrounding the oil platform that had been his home for two years now.

“Scheduled for late May—”

A clanging bell drowned out the rest of the man’s words.

“Devastation—”

The other fragment of conversation pumped up Keith’s heart rate. Were they talking about the sabotage he feared, or was he reading more into the words than were there? He couldn’t believe someone could be callous enough to sabotage the oil platform and destroy the coast on purpose. He’d seen firsthand the devastating effects from the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe. And what about the people living on the platform? Deepwater Horizon had killed eleven people and injured another seventeen.

He had to sound a warning and stop this, but he had no real evidence. If Reid Dixon blew him off, who would even listen? Maybe Homeland Security would pay attention, but who did he even call there? He could tell them about the pictures threatening Bonnie, but what did that prove? They might just say she had a stalker and he was chasing shadows.

He couldn’t say they were wrong.

He sidled along the railing, and the breeze lifted his hair. A boat bobbed in the waves far below, and in the moonlight, he spotted a diver aboard. Must be night diving the artificial reef created by the concrete supports below the platform. He’d done a bit of it himself over the years.

For an instant he wished he were gliding carefree through the waves without this crushing weight of conscience on his shoulders. When he was sixteen, life was so simple. School, girls, football, and good times. He’d gone to work at the platform when he was nineteen, after he’d decided college wasn’t for him.

It had been a safe place, a good place to work with fun companions and interesting work.

Until a few weeks ago when everything turned sinister and strange. He’d wanted to uncover more before he reported it, but every second he delayed could mean a stronger chance of an attack.

If an attack was coming. He still wasn’t sure, and he wanted a name or to identify the organization behind the threat. If there was a threat. Waffling back and forth had held him in place. Was this real, or was he reading something dangerous into something innocent?

Though he didn’t think he was overreacting.

He turned to head to his quarters. A bulky figure rushed him from the shadows and plowed into his chest, driving him back against the railing. The man grabbed Keith’s legs and tried to tip him over the edge.
