sidSid Sinclair is a VC warrior known for his cockiness, smart mouth, and skills in the kitchen. When chosen to take lead on the case of human and half-breed trafficking he takes the task seriously as any good warrior would. Through a turn of events he is paired with Lana Fitzpatrick, a human cop with a lot of spunk. When this vampire playboy starts to have feelings he never had before he realizes there is something special about this woman.

I love Sid. There I said it. Since he first came on to the scene he had me in stitches and I knew he was sexy to boot, but I had no idea just how sexy the warrior was until he got his chance in the spotlight! He is a complete smart ass, but he is a charming one! With that said, I want to be Lana, she is my new hero! She is every bit a smart-ass as Sid, and she is tough, smart, and sexy. I really got into her character, and thought she was a perfect heroine. There is some competition for my heart with Slade Buchanan.  He is an alpha warrior and doctor that can really your pulse quickening! I was so happy to see all the warriors and their mates I have grown to love over the past four books.

Gabelman’s writing is spectacular, and she just keeps getting better. With The Protectors: Sid, she jumps straight into the action which is sure to grab anyone’s attention immediately.  One of the many things that I like about her is that she can deliver a story that is totally hot and makes you laugh out loud, but the story is also heartfelt.  It is apparent that she loves these characters, and it shows in the way she portrays them. I sat down to read a few chapters and stop so I could savor the experience, but that plan was out the window after I read the first chapter!

If you are a vampire junkie and haven’t picked up The Protectors I suggest you do it now, Teresa Gabelman delivers! I am already salivating and lying in wait for the fifth installment!

Renowned for his playboy lifestyle and wisecrack remarks, Sid Sinclair knows he is the last pick for the lead investigator of human/half-breed trafficking. Never one to play by the rules, Sid takes his new position seriously, but not without driving the leader of the VC Council and fellow Warrior’s crazy.

A human with a special gift, Lana Fitzpatrick’s life is complicated. When Sid Sinclair charges into her life, her complicated life becomes torturous; his charm and wit draws her in like no other. Having dealt with alpha men most of her life, she is a match made in heaven for the VC Warrior who thinks he is God’s gift to women.

As the world of vampires and humans try to coexist, Sid and Lana’s lives intertwine. It doesn’t take long before the sparks between the two fly and for them to realize they have both finally met their match.

talekingdomsDuff Torquil and Aelsong Hawking have found a mate in each other. You would think that finding your true mate would be a wonderful thing, but there is a huge problem. Duff is the prince of the fae, while Aelsong is an elf of the royals, and this is where the problem lies, the elves and fae are sworn enemies. While Duff and Song just want nothing more to have a happy life together politics and family want nothing more than to pull them apart.

This is a story I have been waiting for! It was apparent there was quite an attraction after Duff and Song’s first meeting, so I have been eager for them to get their time in the spotlight.  I especially like Song’s character because she has a lot of the personality traits of her brother, my favorite elf Rammel.  Although not all of the characters I have grown to love had major parts in this particular book I had several new ones to keep me occupied. The most fascinating and somewhat peculiar was Kellareal who is an angel of sorts. I am intrigued and hope to see him play a role in future stories. I am also looking forward to seeing the continuing story between Rosie and Glen.

Victoria Danann has once again thrilled me with the latest Black Swan installment. These stories are just such a joy and a pleasure to read. Everything with her writing is just spot on from the wonderful and lovable characters to the well-developed storyline that provides readers with excitement and romance. As I have mentioned from the beginning this is a continuous story, so I urge readers to please start from the beginning because you don’t want to miss out on a single moment of this great saga!

To say that I am dying from anticipation to find out what comes next is an understatement.  Black Swan is now on my list of favorite series, and if you love a good paranormal I am sure it will be on your list as well!

THIS IS THE 6TH INSTALLMENT in an epic serial to be read as an ongoing story beginning with Book 1, My Familiar Stranger, FREE.

DESCRIPTION: Duff Torquil is heir to Scotia, the kingdom of Fae, who have been at war with the Elves for two thousand years. Fae and Elves are both species who have evolved to respond to one fated lover with whom they will mate for life. Duff Torquil’s predestined mate is perfect for him in every way: beautiful, smart, polished, strong willed and a talented psychic who works for The Order of the Black Swan. The only problem is that she’s Aelsong Hawking, the only daughter of the royal house of Elves.

opdanielDaniel got what he had been dreaming of when the object of his desire seduced him on his birthday.  Eighteen year old Lissa has had feelings for Daniel since she was a young teen, but she doesn’t believe in happily ever after. After a beautiful night together she tells Daniel goodbye and disappears from his life. Ten years later, Lissa gets a call; Daniel is getting ready to marry a woman who his sisters dub The Evil One.  She agrees to help, but Daniel has changed. Sparks fly between them just like they did years ago, but Daniel’s secret could place the woman he still loves in danger.

When the readers first meet Daniel he is sweet and kind. Ten years later his character is perfect in looks, the way he dresses, and has an outward appearance of complete coolness. I really wasn’t too impressed with him at first, until I learned his story. Daniel was bitten by a Werewolf, and he must keep his secret. After that the character I saw as cold and unfeeling was someone who was hurting. Lissa is a different story. She is intelligent, independent, and I saw her as a free spirited. I loved her “don’t quit” attitude, and although she has goals she wants to achieve she takes life in stride.

Croft provided an exciting and sexy story for readers to sink their teeth into. Sparks fly between Daniel and Lissa, the chemistry is animalistic and sensual. She provided us with action and suspense you didn’t want to turn away from. In my opinion this was a read that was fun and addicting.  Croft captured my attention and kept me glued to the book’s pages. I did not want to put it down until the last page was read.

Not knowing quite what to expect, I was pleased with this novel, and I believe paranormal romance fans will be pleased as well.  I will certainly be reading more of Croft’s books!

At eighteen, Melissa seduced her best friend Julia’s brother only to run away shortly after. While Daniel was her fairytale prince, Lissa didn’t believe in happy ever afters.

Ten years and a near death experience later, Lissa is ready for a husband and family. But a cry for help from Julia puts that dream on hold. Daniel is acting weird and he’s about to marry his long term girlfriend—AKA The Evil One. Someone needs to save him.

Daniel has never stopped loving Lissa. Ten years ago when he gave her a little freedom, he always intended that one day they would be together. Right up until the moment he was bitten by a werewolf. Now, Daniel has to hide what he is. He won’t risk anyone else, especially the woman he loves.

But Lissa is back. Their attraction is stronger than ever and Lissa is nothing if not tenacious.

games of fateGames of Fate is the first novel in the Fate ~ Fire ~ Shifter ~ Dragon series. Rysa is a young woman in college. She is leading a normal life other than her problems focusing. She is ADHD. One night after trying to prepare for a class with her study buddy and friend Gavin she is attacked. Rysa learns there is more to her life and more about herself than she knew.

Rysa is a very unique and very likeable character. She is a selfless person, and the reader will sympathize with her through her struggles. When she meets Ladon and Dragon there is a fascinating bond forged between the three. It won’t take you long to pick up on the burning chemistry between her and Ladon. I just couldn’t wait to see their story unfold!

Radcliffe has penned the most imaginative tale. Rysa learned that she is a fate; she learned the existence of other creatures and gifted people as well. Sometimes it was hard to grasp what it all meant, because Radcliffe is showing us through Rysa’s eyes. We see her confusion and inability to focus both in part to this new world opened up to her, but also in part to her ADHD. The reader is living the story as Rysa is living it. Although it is at times confusing, it is also refreshing. The story moved at a very quick pace, and once you think you are starting to figure out the meaning of it all, you are turned on your head again! If there is just one thing I could change about the book it would be an addition of a glossary to give a little more information about fates, burners, dragons, etc.

I believe many paranormal fans will enjoy this story as much as I have.  I am looking forward to reading and bringing you a review for the second book Flux of Skin soon!

Available at Amazon.com

Contains Adult Sexual Content and some violent imagery.

Rysa Torres’s attention problems randomize her life but she does the best she can–until monsters activate a part of her she didn’t know she had.  As visions of the future whip inside her head, Rysa realizes the truth:

She’s a Fate.
And she will set fire to the world.

When Ladon and his companion beast, Dragon, find Rysa, they see only the potential hell a young Fate might unleash into their lives.  But Ladon quickly realizes Rysa is much more than the daughter of an old enemy–she is his key to forgiveness.

With the threat of a burning future distorting Rysa’s Fate abilities, she sees only two options:  End her own life, or watch Ladon, the only man to see beyond her attention issues and love her for who she is, die.  Will they accept the only future they see, or will they find the strength to break the bonds of fate?
 

The Fate ~ Fire ~ Shifter ~ Dragon Series:
New Adult Urban Fantasy Romance

The Fate ~ Fire ~ Shifter ~ Dragon series takes Rysa and Ladon–and Ladon’s companion beast, Dragon–through a landscape punctuated by unfamiliar creatures: 

Fates with the ability to see past, present, and future.
Ghouls called Burners who devour with fire and acid.
Shifters who shape much more than their bodies.
And two dragons who speak with color and pattern.

#0 Prolusio:  Three Prelude Stories of Fates Fire Shifters and Dragons.
#1 Games of Fate: It’s not a good love story until something explodes.
#1.5 Conpulsio:  A Fate ~ Fire ~ Shifter ~ Dragon novella of binding and compulsion.
#2 Flux of Skin:  All Shifters understand fury.  Now they learn rupture.
#3 Fifth of Blood:  Coming this February from Six Talon Sign Fantasy & Futuristic Romance.
#3.5 Silence:  Coming this Spring.

flux of skinFlux of Skin is the second book in the Fate~Fire~Shifter~Dragon Series. Book two picks up where Games of Fate left off. Ladon and Rysa have escaped the fight in Salt Lake City, but the danger is far from over. Rysa is still activating and learning to use her powers. Ladon will do anything to keep his beloved safe and at his side, but will he be able to protect her from this new enemy?

I really enjoy Rysa and Ladon. They make a nice match, and I have enjoyed seeing their bond grow in Flux of Skin. The relationship between the two has become even deeper in the second book; it is far beyond sex and attraction. Even though in Games of Fate you knew they were mates it is really solidified in this book.

After reading Games of Fate I didn’t think the action could get any more intense, I was seriously mistaken. Radcliffe once again delivers another nail biter! The passion and heat between Ladon and Ryssa is once again scorching. The colorful cast of characters round out this second installment in the series. There were still moments that I felt a little lost with what was happening. Although Radcliffe writes with vivid imagery there were times I felt a little confused on the origins and purpose of some of these fascinating creatures.

Radcliffe brings a very unique paranormal to the table with this series. Lovers of the genre who like a lot of fast paced action in their read would do well to give the series a try.

And he can’t stop fighting.

Shadow Lord is the first book in the Second Species series.  It is the story of Marek Strigoi who becomes the leader of his family after the murder of his parents and other family members.  He is Aventurieri, or what humans would call vampires. This story chronicles Marek’s life as he seeks revenge on Mircea Ravagiu for the death of those he loved.

Marek is a fascinating character indeed. I loved going with him on his life’s journey,  and meeting those who were close to him. His loyalty to his family was very touching,  and the reader has the impression that this young man has quite a burden on his shoulders to bear.  His brothers, Vlad and Andreas, who were twins had moments of being quite delightful. Their humor and hijinks provides the reader with plenty of entertainment!

Tony-Paul de Vissage once again delivers the type of work I have come to expect from him. There is a certain classic charm to his writing. He brings to the reader a unique twist to the vampire that is far from the usual fare. While reading Shadow Lord I went from happiness to heartbreak and every emotion in between.  This is a fascinating and epic story that completely enthralled me, and was made better by de Vissage’s attention to detail.

After I finished the story I was dying to know how this story would continue.  I am eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series. I can only say bravo to Mr. Vissage for a job well done!
