Lily White-Fraud

Fraud is the second book in Lily’s Antihero Inferno series. And antihero is definitely the right description for the guys in this book. I was really excited to see this book, because I liked Gabriel when we met him in the first book, and I still like him in this one. At least most of the time. He is an asshole, but could he be a member of Inferno if he wasn’t?

Ivy has just been told by Tanner that it’s time for her to pay up for the favor that Inferno did for her back in the day. They want info on her dad, the governor. But she doesn’t want to give them anything, because she loves her dad. But Tanner sics Gabe on her, and they have a long history. For many years they’ve pulled pranks and done tricks on each other. But now, with them wanting information on her dad, it’s more than just putting a shitload of chickens in Gabe’s house or filling his car with eggs. It’s more like going on a date with him, then tricking him, tying him up, writing a message on him, and dumping Gabe bare assed naked on Tanner’s front yard, and then running away. And she really did that. I don’t blame her at all. I would’ve totally run away after doing that. I might’ve stripped him and tied him up too, maybe.

Gabe, of course, isn’t going to take that laying down. He’s going to go and get her, because they still need to have the info that he has, no matter what. So, he does what Fraud does best, and lies. Not only does he lie, but he also ends up getting her disowned by father. Which means that she has to depend on him. Which means more tricks on both their parts.

Fraud is an appropriate name for Gabe, for sure. He is a very talented liar. I think that he is a little too talented sometimes, if you know what I mean. He manages to lie to himself, sometimes, I think, even if he doesn’t realize that he is doing it. I mean, do we ever know that we are lying to ourselves? It just goes so deep in him. He’s broken and hurt, like all of them are. I think Tanner may be the most functional of all the guys, but this is only the second book, so I’m not entirely sure yet. I can’t wait for the future books, because I’m really looking forward to not just the characters, but also the overall storyline.

Ivy is smart. So very, very smart. It both helps and hurts her. She’s also at least as good a game player as the guys are, just in a different way. Gabe and Ivy are always playing games with each other, and sometimes one of them is ahead of the other, and sometimes it’s the other way around. The thing is, she’s really willing to play the long game, and by long game, I mean like decades long long game. I look forward to seeing what she and Gabe manage to get up to together.

Anna Edwards-A Deadly Affair

Anna is back with the latest book in her Glacial Blood pack books. A Deadly Affair is #7, and I think we are coming to the final book soon. I know that there is at least one more, because I’m already signed up for it. And after the events in this book, I can’t wait to see what is going to happen.

So, Nuka and Ciaran are up to no good, which of course they aren’t. In fact, they are so up to no good that there isn’t anyone who can practice more dark magic than Ciaran now, and he’s about to prove it, in the worst of ways. The first thing he does is separate Nuka’s dead grandfather from the body of Samuel, where he has been living. Then he, Nuka, dead grandfather, and demon Samuel go on the attack.

Back in Montana, we have the Glacial Blood Pack’s witch, Jessica Raven, who is also Ciaran’s former student and lover. He hurt her, badly, and she’s still dealing with the aftermath. Then there’s Ethern, who is a multi-shifter, who has definite feelings for her. She has feelings for Ethern too, but she doesn’t want to have them, because of the walls that she has had to build up because of what Ciaran did to her.

The thing is that no matter how much Ethern cares for her or she cares for Ethern, there are things that he’s not telling her. You see, multi-shifters like Ethern know all kinds of things. And some of the things he knows he really doesn’t want to know. He tells Jessica that he’ll always be there for her, and encourages her to tell him what she knows about Ciaran.

I admire Jessica. She’s not in an easy position at all, and she knows it, but she still does everything she can to help her pack. She’s wicked powerful, but she’s even more responsible in how she uses her power. She really wants to help people and save the world. She has a truly loving heart, even with what that asshole did to her. And frankly Ciaran can just go burn in hell.

I’ve always liked Ethern. He’s a good man. He has the weight of the world on his shoulders, but I think that he can mostly handle it, or at least the part of it that he can do anything about. He’s set up the things that he needs to set up in the way in which he needs them to be done, but even he can only do so much, especially if there are things that are set in stone.

I can’t wait for the upcoming book.

Every time I think that Nuka and Ciaran can’t get any worse, they do. But this time. maybe at least one of them is stopped. Maybe. We’ll have to see.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check them all out! Happy reading!

Anna Edwards-A Deadly Affair Available Now!


Title: A Deadly Affair
Series: Glacial Blood Series #7
Author: Anna Edwards
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Cover Design: Charity Hendry
Jessica Raven is a powerful witch and loyal member of the Glacial Blood pack. Her only regret in life was devoting so much time to her ex-lover Ciaran, who’s now beta to a tyrannical polar bear shifter. Did she unknowingly help him set in motion a chain of events, which looks set to destroy the world as she knows it? Or is she the only one who holds the key to stopping him? 

Ethern Lennox is a member of the shifters’ Council with a hidden loyalty to the Glacial Blood pack. He’s been preparing for war with the human world for several years now, both in his role on the Council and in quiet behind the scenes. He knows more about the supernatural powers out there than anyone else. Will he be able to use them in time to stop Nuka Lincoln’s pack taking over? Or will he fall short and possibly even lose his own life? 

As the fight between good and evil takes a dramatic turn, Jessica and Ethern find themselves under increasing pressure. Can they find a way to stop Ciaran before he reveals the existence of shifters to the human world? 

Welcome to the bestselling Glacial Blood series, a world of shifters and witches, magic and mayhem, unforgivable lies, and unbreakable love. A world where family is born not only through blood but through a bond of friendship and loyalty. With plenty of threats to come—and a secret that remains untold.

“You will get there. Jessica. Your magical abilities are amazing. I learn something new every time I watch you.”

Ethern was in awe of her skills. His own magical abilities had come to him because he touched a witch, and he didn’t know how to use them like Jessica did. Most of the magic he did manage was a matter of guesswork and following his instincts. Whereas Jessica had practiced for so many years now it had become second nature to her.

“Thank you.” Jessica bit her lip, and Ethern found himself reaching out to touch her on the shoulder. 

“Trust me.”

“I do, Ethern. I lost my way for a while, but my confidence in my abilities is growing again. I do worry, though. Sometimes the power surging through me is so strong I fear losing myself to it.”

“I think we all do. You’re probably unaware, but multi-shifters possess a power that could leave us lost to all we know if it’s not controlled. The most important thing is to trust yourself and those around you to keep you grounded.”

“I often forget my support network is one of the strongest in the supernatural world. The things some of those people in the other room have been through are so shocking—I can’t imagine coming out the other side and then being able to laugh and joke about the world at large while sitting down for a meal.”

Ethern let go of Jessica and picked up the book she’d been looking at. He flicked through the pages as he thought about how to respond to her.

“The Glacial Blood pack is like no other. It’s an inclusive mix of shifters and humans and an example of what the world could be like without intolerance. I may not be a member, but I’m glad I’m allowed to be a part of it even in a very small way.”

Jessica took the book from him. 

“I wouldn’t say you’re not a member of the pack. It’s unofficial, but you’re with us when we need you.”

“Thank you. I would do anything for my friends here.”

Jessica looked up at him, and the air heated in the room. Was he overthinking it, or did she have feelings for him as well? They fell silent for a few moments while Jessica stepped away and began to look through the book in her hands.

“Let’s cast a spell together, Ethern. I’ve got one I’m not sure you know. I want to try it with you.”

“Ok.” He chuckled and allowed his skin to display the green hue and markings of a witch. 

Jessica lifted her gaze from the book and took in his new appearance.

“I would love to see my true form one day. I’m jealous multi-shifters get to change and I don’t” she said wistfully, tentatively reaching out and tracing the pentagram tattoo on his hand. “ I wonder what symbols I’d have. You and Selene both have different markings, and I don’t even recognize some of them. It’s intriguing.”

“I agree. It’s a fascinating ancient language. I don’t know the meaning of a lot of the markings, but I feel them when I use my magic. Each one gives me a different power.” He pointed to a small star on his face just beneath his left eye. “This one is where my teleportation comes from. It heats up whenever I teleport.”

“The wandering star.” Jessica reached up to touch the small tattoo on his face. “Maybe when the war is over, we can spend some time exploring them. See what they do?”

Ethern fell quiet. He knew already he wouldn’t end the war in this form. Sacrifices had to be made — and it was the reason why he’d been raised from the dead as a multi-shifter. 

“Anyway,” he said, changing the subject. “What is this spell?”

Jessica handed the book back to him and pointed at a page. He started to read while she began searching around on her desk for something. The spell was a little mundane, turning coal to a diamond. It seemed a silly spell to him and had the potential of being a dangerous one if it fell into the wrong hands. Jessica handed him a lump of coal. He looked down at it like it was burning his hands.

“Why this spell?” he asked.

“It’s different, and it’s good way to practice when learning to change the shape and properties of objects.” 

Jessica placed her hand over the coal, and it changed into a spectacular diamond. It took his breath away with its beauty. He looked at it more closely, admiring the line of the precious stone. Its cut was exquisite and its carat would be very high. It would be worth a fortune. He looked up and noticed Jessica was watching him intently, her brows deeply furrowed in the center of her forehead.

She placed her hand over the stone again, and it turned back into a lump of coal.

“Your turn,” Jessica challenged as she started to walk away from him. 

Her shoulders were slumped, and if he guessed correctly, she was deflated and worried about something.

“Jessica, wait.” He stopped her with his free hand. “What’s wrong?”

“Your turn,” she repeated, her voice cracking as she spoke. 

She pulled away from him and took a seat on a nearby chair while he stared down at the lump of coal. This was a test. He felt it deep inside. He didn’t want to turn the lump of sedimentary rock into a diamond. It wasn’t him. Precious stones weren’t what he wanted or even needed in his life. Money had no value to him. 

He felt a burning on his back from another of his tattoos, and he gasped causing Jessica’s eyes to widen. He knew exactly which marking it was—the one of a black raven. He placed his free hand over the lump of coal and allowed the magic within him to work. When he pulled his hand away, instead of a diamond there was a black feather resting in his hand—a large tail feather of a raven. Walking over to Jessica, he handed it to her. 

“I don’t need diamonds. This raven’s feather is of more value to me than anything else. It represents all that’s in my heart.”
 

All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.

I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.

K Webster-Campfire Chaos

Book 3 in the Hood River Hoodlums is out with Campfire Chaos. These books are not standalone books. If you haven’t read the previous books, you will not understand this one. Plus, why wouldn’t you want to read more K books? Because always read more K books. And then go buy them signed.

So, this picks up right after Little Hoodlum leaves off. There may be spoilers for the previous two books, but I’ll try to keep them to a minimum. (BTW, I’m trying to type with barbecue sauce all over my fingers because I have a rack of ribs sitting beside me. So, envy me.) (Thank goodness for baby wipes)

Charlotte has been in an accident and she’s miscarried her baby. And in that accident, she hit another car, one with one of the Hoodlums in it. He’s in a coma, and she’s in the hospital. Her family are there to try to help her, and they are helping her to get clean, because Ryan has addicted her to just about everything. But he’s walked away from her, which isn’t a bad thing. When she’s home, she is having such a hard time because now that she’s sober she feels everything. Then Ryan starts in at her again. So she butchers her hair, sends him a pic, blocks him, and calls her dad so that she can go to rehab.

Then we have Cal. He’s one of the Hoodlums, but the OG Hoodlums, while they were all best friends, really broke down into 2 pairs of really best friends. Jordy and Roan are one pair, and Cal and Terrence are the other. Now T is in a coma, and Cal feels like he is missing part of his soul. And what makes it even worse is the fact that Charlotte is walking around free. He hates that. Totally hates that. And haves her even more. When he runs into her, he tells her that he is going to make her life miserable.

I really felt like Charlotte grew a whole lot during the time of this book. I was really proud of her and how she discovered her power and strength. I loved how she handled a lot of the people who tried to put her down and take that power away from her. I think that she is definitely going to be an incredibly strong woman as she gets older.

Cal is a good guy, if a little chaotic. He does have some issues with his anger and impulsivity, but overall, I think that he has a really good heart. He loves his friends and he wants to do everything he can to make sure that they are safe. Up to and including making sure that people know his name and will always remember it, no matter what. I think that he has a moral code that is slightly different than what we would have, but it works really for him.

I love Penny, Garret, Loden, Jace, and Tiarra. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.

Creepy ass guy definitely got what his creepy ass deserved.

Leann Ryans-Proposition #1

Leann usually gives us Omegaverse, but this is her first non-OV book. Proposition #1 is a pretty short read and one that is pretty engrossing. It is the first book in a new series, and it is a HFN. I wouldn’t quite call it a cliffie, since it pretty much wrapped up everything at the end.

So, here we go. Cadence is a young woman who is working really hard to make sure that her mother, who is dealing with dementia, and her younger brother have a roof over their head and food in their stomachs. She works two jobs and her brother takes care of their mother after he gets out of school. They are almost making it, and then her brother does something really stupid. He got involved with local drug dealers, and they made him their runner. On his very first run, something happened. He got mugged by some guys who stole $22k of drugs from him. Now the guys he was running drugs for want their money or they want him. Cadence isn’t about to let her brother get hurt, so she’s going to do what she can to help him.

Then we have Leo. His dad is the boss of the group that Cadence’s brother was working for. He told Cadence that he needed the money and he gave her 2 weeks to come up with it. Then Leo talks to her and tells her that he has a proposition for her.

Cadence is a sweet young woman. She’s also determined, which is a good thing, because that’s all that’s keeping her going. I do feel sorry for her trying to deal with her mother and her mother’s illness. I know how hard it is to take care of a family member with dementia. But she does a really good job, or at least the best job possible, as long as things stay normal. Even when things are not normal, she works so hard to do everything she can to help her family.

Leo isn’t a bad guy. He’s not the best guy either. I mean, he is the son of a drug boss, but there’s something about him that I really like.

I’m really looking forward to #2.

No spoilers today, since this one is so short.

Cari Silverwood-The Princess Tied

Cari has written a funny, sexy, and amusing book with The Princess Tied, and I am so here for it! It is a takeoff on The Princess Bride, and it is definitely a kissing book, as well as a fucking book.

(Note, this was supposed to be written on Friday, but I was having issues with allergies that left my eyes really blurry, which made typing interesting.) (Thank goodness for Benedryl.)(Makes me really sleepy though.)

We start with John clawing his way out of hell. He was sent there by The Storyteller, who also took his brother Xander, who happens to be betrothed to Princess Pollianna, AKA Po, who is the ruler of the kingdom of Bitzocoin. He wants to go after the princess, because she’s doing absolutely nothing to find his brother. He’s going to do everything he can to get his brother back, including kidnapping the Princess and forcing her to help him find Xander.

Po is worried about Xander, but he made her vow to him that she wouldn’t go looking for him if something happened to him, so she hasn’t been doing much. And of course, John is pissy about that, and I don’t blame him. So, he sneaks into her bedroom and kidnaps her. Or, rather, tries to kidnap her, but he needs her help to do it.

Meanwhile, Xander has been drugged by the Storyteller. He gets drugged daily, after a conversation with the Storyteller.

Po is really smart, at least book smart, but I think that she is less smart when it comes to people. I don’t really think that’s her fault though, as she is a Princess, and she’s never really had to be all that people smart. She has to be ruler smart, which I think is pretty good thing for her in general, but not what most people would need to have. She does a really good job for her kingdom, including wheeling and dealing on the stock market, making loads of money and boosting the economy.

I like John. I think that he is not nearly as bad as he thinks he is. I mean, he does have an evil streak, but he keeps that under control. I also think he ends up caring for people more than he thought that he could. I have a feeling that the only person he really cared for or cared about was Xander.

Ruth, Shades, and Ruff are just a lot of fun to have around, and I think that without them, the book wouldn’t have moved as well. I pretty much just adore Ruff, because who wouldn’t.

I love the casket.
