Review: The Undead Next Door

The Undead Next Door The Undead Next Door by Kerrelyn Sparks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spunky N Sassy Rating: 4.0

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Heather just thought she would see designer dresses at the new opening of Jean-Luc's newest store in Texas. Jean-Luc is going into exile as people are starting to ask questions as to why he isn't aging. The last thing he expected was Heather and an old enemy to target her because of him. He will do anything to protect Heather and her daughter Bethany, not to mention her gun wielding nanny. I love this series and this book brought heat, danger, action and lots of humor. Definitely a must read.

Got book through the local library and loved it!!!

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Eve left a horrible situation that was clouded in secrets, but she is finding out that the past always catches up to the present. Eve's past walked in the door with Zach. Zach is here to make Eve pay for the men she killed. Little do either of them know, there are more secrets and lies to uncover. Wow! What a great story, so different from anything I have read in the past. Eve is a woman full of insecure and doubt. Zach is full of anger and revenge. Both have strong wills and I loved reading their journey to discovery for both of them. My first book that I read by Natasha Knight and it won't be my last. Great Read!

Review: A Beautiful Heartbreak

A Beautiful Heartbreak A Beautiful Heartbreak by Alora Kate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Spunky N Sassy Rating: 4.5

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Wow! Every book I have read by Alora Kate is just better than the one before. This is definitely a case of the author improves with every new book. This new series is going to be a jaw dropper. I loved all the twists and turns that we follow along with Alexa and Ki. When Ki falls into Prescot's office to serve him it all begins a whirlwind, but she is in the middle of something she never expected. Something that will turn her world upside down. I have to say this story was amazing and the way Ki and Prescot didn't just give in. They both have demons to fight. Prescot's story made me weep. For such a strong man he was fighting some pretty horrible memories of his past. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series and find out more about Alexa and Tapper.

~~~~~~~~~~Lindsey's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Alora Kate is a fantastic storyteller. This is the first book I've read by her and I loved it.

Vexed


Title: Vexed
Author: Kristy Nicolle
Genre: Adult Fantasy Romance
Expected Release Date: December 2017
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Blurb: 

It’s been less than four weeks since Vex received a wedding cake facial, and Azure is close to breaking point. Trapped ruling a species just like herself, she feels a rage unlike any she’s ever known, and is certain that both she and the Psirens are irredeemable. With Poseidon’s voice still ringing in their ears, Vex finally finds the courage to reveal what he was trying to tell her the night of the Fischer wedding, and it might be just in time. Can Vex help Azure become the ruler that Poseidon expects of her; the ruler he knows she can be, and perhaps lay his own past to rest along the way? Or will the darkness consume them as they journey to a small English town in search of the last remnants of Azure’s long-lost daughter?

Join this dark duo as they learn not only whether it is possible to fight, but feel, by embracing the very shadow that makes them who they are.


Title: The Tidal Kiss Trilogy
Author: Kristy Nicolle
Genre: Adult Fantasy Romance
Expected Release Date: December 2017
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Blurb:

THE KISS THAT KILLED ME

When Callie Pierce turns 18 she has three very simple goals; avoid her stepfather, escape to an Ivy League university of her dreams and party with her friends. But on a night like any other, when the moon is full over the ocean, her life changes in a way that nobody ever sees coming. On the sandy beaches of San Diego she meets Orion, a man with whom she cannot stay away, to whom her return becomes as inevitable as the tide kissing the shore. If that isn't enough, a kiss which changes everything plunges Callie head first into a world of 
Mythic responsibility, epic danger and heart stopping romance. The Mer, an ancient race of warriors brought forth to defend the seas, show her wonders beyond what is humanly possible, forcing her into an archaic chain of events that bring together power, seduction, violence and beauty in a terrifying yet exhilarating mix. Then there’s The Banished to contend with, a group of Psirens, corrupted by the Oceans abyss, that stand to destroy the eternity Callie has been promised. Will she sacrifice herself for the greater good, or is the gravity that pulls her to Orion just too great to bear?

THE KISS THAT SAVED ME

Four months have passed since the night Callie Pierce fulfilled her destiny as the Vessel and her world is shifting faster than ever before. The Occulta Mirum is in disarray, still reeling from the demise of its longest reigning monarch and its people have a decision to make, on which more lies balanced than they know. As Callie and Orion rise together to new responsibility, dealing with the consequences of what has passed, Callie finds herself changed and looking into the shadow of the deep for answers. The life she’s been thrown into isn’t what she expected, and as the responsibility of her new found position among the mer mounts, the cracks in the fantasy world she so loves are starting to show. Can then, the dark mystique of the Psiren’s world be what Callie was destined for all along?
Get ready to ride into the world of the Occulta Mirum at greater depth than ever before. As Callie learns the truth of the ancient agenda of three brothers, and comes face to face with the temptation and allure of what will seemingly save everyone she loves.

THE KISS THAT CHANGED ME

As two brothers reach the final phase of their plan to seize the stolen powers of a God made flesh, the Psirens lay claim to the debris of the Occulta Mirum. With this, a race against the rising blood moon l begins.

As the seconds tick away, Callie and Orion must journey to the farthest corners of the earth, learning to balance devotion and duty whilst reuniting the segregated Kindred of the Circle of Eight. If this is not enough the function of the conduit is still unknown, meaning Callie and Orion must learn democratic flair in multicultural waters to convince others to risk their lives as well. With their foretold future together in the balance, their unity has never been so crucial and one’s willingness to sacrifice the other for the greater good never more necessary.

Can the journey of an immortal lifetime hold answers to salvation, or will it only bring the mer to their final resting place as their race is threatened with extinction.

Title: Blood Script
  Author: Airicka Phoenix
Genre: Dark Romance


Blurb:

“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.

Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?

“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”

But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?

Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.

This book is adult and intended for a mature audience with strong elements of language, sex, and a dirty mouthed pirate. It has cases of BDSM, kink, and violence.

The Chosen Knights think they’ve found all the clues, but the last one leads them to yet another destination. They astral travel back to the massive destruction of the Knights Templar and find a missing element. As they decipher the final puzzle piece, Cyrus continues to grow his army.

A powerful volcano in Hawaii erupts, and inhabitants are forced to stay and fight the demons or flee. Many people once believed to be dead rise to help defeat Cyrus, and Venators arrive from Crossroads to help. Time is running out, and the Chosen Knights must decide to finish what they started or leave the battle to find the Snow Queen, who some believe is the only one who can defeat Cyrus.

When the tragic death of her father brings Addison MacKenna back to the town where she was born, she can't understand the strange sensations that have begun to consume her. 

Plagued with nightmares of her father's sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe that his demise was accidental.

But that's not the only thing Addie struggles with.

Caught up in the horrors of her latest nightmare while driving to work one day, she's startled beyond comprehension when she almost runs down a man standing in the middle of the road. A gorgeous, stunning man she can't seem to take her mind or her eyes off of. All of a sudden, the impossible seems possible, and it's not clear whether that's a blessing or a curse.

Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious, but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. He's faced with the tough decision of whether to let her in or sabotage their new relationship in order to keep her safe as well as his own heart.

Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them in the end?

Beg, Borrow or Steal



  Title: Beg, Borrow or Steal By: Susie Tate
Publication Date: Sept 28, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
#begborroworstealtour

Jamie is proud of everything he’s achieved. A consultant anaesthetist and the Medical Education Director – he’s a pretty big deal. So when one of his medical students falls asleep, right in the middle of a tutorial, he is furious. He’s a bloody good teacher, damn it! Maybe he could have been a little more understanding. Maybe he didn’t have to try and humiliate her. But the shock of how beautiful this particular student was when she finally opened her eyes, and his inappropriate reaction, only fuelled his anger. He’s tired of lame excuses from wild party animals burning the candle at both ends, and he’s going to make an example of this one. For Libby, pride is a luxury and beauty is currency. Pregnant at seventeen and an aspiring doctor, she couldn’t afford to be proud, so she cashed in on her looks instead. She will beg, borrow or steal to achieve her dreams and give her daughter the life she deserves, even if she has to forgo sleep – even if she has to leave her dignity behind. Only now that she’s not just sitting in lecture theatres like her first two years of medical school, now that she’s working in a real hospital, Libby is realizing that the thread she’s been hanging onto for so long may be about to snap. The last thing she needs is to have riled the gorgeous, judgmental Head of Medical Education. But there’s only so far you can push yourself, only so much pressure you can be under until you break. Libby’s been on that cliff edge for a while; her health may just tip her over. A kick in the shin from a gorgeous little four-year-old girl and a confrontation with her tearful, exhausted mother soon forces Jamie to see what a bastard he’s been. Libby may not accept his help, but he’s relentless when he wants something, and it’s not long before he realizes that this mother and daughter belong with him. So when a stag night he’s on ends up in the best strip club in England and he sees who the main attraction is, his reaction is explosive. Despite everything, Libby finds she still has some pride left. This man has made her feel small twice now. He won’t be getting a third shot. No matter how gorgeous he is, no matter how persistent … This book is a full-length contemporary romance of approximately 90,000 words with no cliffhanger and its own HEA.
