Valentine's Giveaway!


Happy Romance Day everyone!

Looking for a steamy read with sexy alpha male and a tough heroine? Enter to win a copy of Wicked Passion (Under Realm Assassins #3). The giveaway will run 2/13-2/20 and winner will be selected at random. 

Description:

James Stonewoll is an Elite Assassin for the Under Realm Syndicate—an expert hunter and merciless killer. As a former pirate, he thrives on danger, the more perilous the mission, the better and he can't resist his newest contract: eliminate a rebel shape-shifting magic thief that stalks the border of the Under Realm kidnapping and murdering innocent Others. But never did the centuries old vampire anticipate playing hero to a mythical temptress with luscious curves, tantalizing lips, and hypnotic eyes.
Captured and held prisoner, Katya Moro was trapped in a seemingly endless loop of unimaginable agony as her magic was slowly being torn from her soul. A gasp away from death, she is rescued by a sinful kiss and awakens in the strong arms of a powerful warrior whose roguish smile, sharp fangs, and intense strength unlock dormant instincts within her, an all-consuming madness that demands complete surrender.
Gazing down at her, James knew he had to kill her. Dark Magic Wielders, like the beautiful female he’d found, were a grave threat to human society and were not permitted to roam the mortal world. But Katya’s smoky voice and sweet kisses stir a fierce hunger inside him. She is unpredictable, uncontrollable and wickedly seductive—his perfect kind of dangerous. To keep her safe, James will protect her from the magic thieves that hunt her and his fellow assassins until he can find a way to return Katya to her home in the Under Realm.
Can Katya’s passion conquer the darkness within his soul?

A Bewitching Christmas (Under Realm Assassins #1)
It has been seven years since Analette Dyson stopped practicing magic and headed to New York, where she created a new life, complete with a fabulous job, an apartment in Central Park West, and a sexy werewolf fiancé. She never planned on returning to her small home town in Maine, but when she learns her grandmother is ill, she decides to pop over for a visit and what better time than Christmas? Excited for her fiancé to meet her family, they head up a day early.

Worst idea ever!

After doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Analette returns to their hotel to find her fiancé in bed with another woman. Cursing the universe for her never ending bad luck with men and dreading telling her family about her cheating fiancé, she heads to the bar to self medicate.

Not one to celebrate the holidays, vampire and assassin, Cole McRae, has followed a lead to a rustic town in witch territory. But after a few days of research and waiting for his target to show, he begins to suspect he has wasted his time. That is, until he meets a curvaceous blonde with bewitching green eyes at the local bar. One night with the enchanting Analette could make this useless trip well worth his time.

Their passion is undeniable and unbeknownst to them, their fates are intertwined. Magic and romance will strike on Christmas, changing their lives forever.

~ Hadrian watched as Dimitri’s pupils dilated then returned to their natural state. His body tingled with awareness. He could sense a change in Dimitri and deduced the ancient had received a vision.
“Start at the end,” the pureblood said.
Hadrian’s brow furrowed as he grasped the meaning. “Are you suggesting I pick up where I left off.
“Yes. There is always a new beginning at the end.”
“The end,” Hadrian repeated thoughtfully, his frown deepening.~

Caressed by Night
Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundred years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.


Caressed by a Crimson Moon
Amazon 

Consumed by madness and tormented by dark memories of blood and death, Hadrian Lucretius, King of the Validus Clan, has returned after living in self-imposed exile for nearly three hundred and fifty years.

To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack. Hadrian’s reputation is both legendary and lethal; he is ruthless, bloodthirsty, lusty, and soulless. When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.

Would she be his lover…or his prey? His savior…or his victim? Would Hadrian lure her into madness or would their perilous passion be their redemption?

Happy Friday!

This weekend's book is Tempting Mr. Weatherstone (Wallflower Weddings #.05) and it will be book 9 of 60 for the year.

22836686Tempting Mr. Weatherstone 
by Vivienne Lorret

Penelope Rutledge longs for passion, but only with the man of her dreams: the brilliant, dashing Ethan Weatherstone. If only her longtime neighbor would open his eyes and realize how much she loves him. If only they weren’t best friends with so much at stake. Penelope knows her future—and their friendship—is in her hands, but is she willing to take the biggest risk of all on the man she loves?

If it were up to Ethan, life and love would be as predictable as the figures in his ledgers—certainly nothing like the adventures Penelope longs for. Yet his childhood friend has grown into a beautiful, feisty woman blissfully unaware of the danger she causes when near. Ethan knows he must save Penelope and her reputation … but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips? - Goodreads

~Evyn inhaled the fall air and rapidly cataloged the familiar scents of forest - damp earth, decaying foliage, crisp pine - and isolated a new, exquisite fragrance so delicate he’d almost missed it. Cherry blossom and woman. He drew in another breath, deeper than the last and the female’s scent struck him like a blow to the back of the head. His vision blurred, his lungs seized. Stunned he swayed, his arm dropped to his side. How he not noticed the delectable scent before? How had he not heard the strong, alluring cadence of her heartbeat and the soft song of her breath? His mind clouded, his fangs sharpened, his body heated as if in awakening.~

Hi lovely readers,

Happy Friday! I'm going into this weekend reading my 6th book for the year. Hopefully I can keep up the pace and reach my goal of 60 books read for 2020 before the year is over. The pressure is on.
My next read:

The Devilish Mr. Danvers (The Rakes of Fallow Hallow #2) by  Vivienne Lorret
For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She's inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what's hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He's determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn't careful, he'll claim her heart as well.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley—the younger sister of his former fiancée—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can't seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can't help falling in love with her.

Ten Kisses to Scandal by Vivienne Lorret

37868567
Goodreads
Description

Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…

Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.

Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.

Pure Jonel's Review of A Bewitching Christmas

Pure Jonel ~ Confessions of a Bibliophile gave A Bewitching Christmas 5 of 5 stars! Read her review below and don't pass up the chance to you copy. 
Goodreads

Greene introduces us to a variety of different supernaturals and really develops those that we meet closely in this story. The concept and strength of vampire claiming is apparent to anyone reading and made me fall in love with Cole a little more. She also develops the notion and workings of the assassins in a way that readers can understand it and connect with it. It all worked directly into the plot of the story, one which kept me on my toes, between the suspense and palpable chemistry between the characters. Greene is a visually descriptive author who really brings this all to life in a vivid manner. The well written, polished presentation makes it a joy to read.
I felt for both the main characters in this story from the moment that they were introduced. It wasn’t pity, but rather an emotional connection with them based on what they’d been through. I liked seeing both characters’ perspectives on the goings on. Not only did it add to the character development, but it also added a great deal of fun and heat to the story. The intense chemistry between the characters really drives the story forward.
This novella is fun for Christmas, or at any time of year. Greene has created a unique & unforgettable story for those who love hot supernaturals.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
