CRAVED BY AN ALPHA

Having turned his back on his snow leopard pride, Cavanaugh has been counting the days until he’s free of a role he never wanted—one that separated him from his fated female and stands between them. But just days before he’s free to be with her, Eloise walks back into his life and demands he save the pride from the tyrant he left in charge. As they travel to Bhutan, will Eloise be able to resist the burning need that Cavanaugh reignites in her and remember her place in the pride? And can Cavanaugh find a way to save his kin and claim the future he craves with the woman he loves?

 

HUNTER’S MOON

The horror of the night he failed to save his werewolf pack from the cruelty of their vampire masters has haunted Nicolae for one hundred years, driving him deep into the Canadian wilderness in search of peace. That peace is threatened when unfamiliar hunters and the scent of blood lead him to a beautiful vampire and a hard decision—face his past and help her or risk losing everyone again.

 

EMBRACING THE WOLF

The night Amon revealed that he was an alpha werewolf and she too held the gene in her blood, Kat fled his pack, but no matter how far she runs, she cannot shake the ‘beast’ inside her or the knowledge that one day she will mature into a werewolf—into Amon’s mate. Four years on and now a member of the Werewolf Control Forces, Kat hides in plain sight among their ranks, each night fighting the ‘beast’ inside of her and hunting rogue werewolves with a vengeance. But when she discovers Amon is dangerously close to turning rogue and only she can save him, will she hunt him or will she embrace the wolf to save them both?

 

IN HEAT

A heat wave isn’t the only thing making London too hot for lawyer Kim. She’s been spending each night with a man who sets her body and heart on fire. The problem? He’s a man who always sprouts black fur and purrs, and he’s only a dream. Walking into her office, the last thing she expects is to meet Erik, a man who sends her temperature soaring and who resembles her dream guy exactly. As the flames of passion between them burn white-hot, Erik is willing to risk everything to claim his fated mate, but when his secret is revealed, will Kim turn her back on him or give him the forever after he craves?

 

CRAVE

Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can’t ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.

VH Teaser 1

#Excerpt

Lan

I had finished my education and chosen to sign on with Black Swan. The ink wasn’t dry on the paper before I was out the door. First assignment was Grunewald, the unit that serviced Berlin. It was close enough by whister to patrol, but far enough away to be secluded. The building was a renovation, or adaptation really, of an eighteenth century grand house, set in the middle of a forest preserve that was off limits to anyone not Black Swan.

I had seen a lot of the world by then, but had never been to Berlin. I knew why we had a unit there. Because wherever you find prevalent nightlife, you find active nests of vampire. I didn’t have any personal experience with leeches at that time. But you don’t have to experience a thing personally to believe people when they tell you it’s nasty.

I had never heard anything about vampire until six months ago. They trained our minds and bodies to be precision instruments and occasionally said something vague about protecting the innocent. But crap on a croissant. We had no idea we were preparing to be the only barrier between humanity and monsters that turned out to be real. Our story when we met civilian juvies was that we were in military school. Hel. Close enough. Right?

Anyway, six months ago they clued me in. There are vampire out there. I had two choices when I turned eighteen. I could sign on as a vampire hunter or go home and keep my mouth shut about everything I’d learned. I was told that, if I chose the first option, I’d find that my training hadn’t even begun. I didn’t believe that. I mean how much harder could it be? Really.

They said they took the mouth shut part of option two very seriously. No threat was spelled out, but it was certainly implied. I had six months to decide. So. Sure. I thought about it. A lot.

The day before I turned eighteen I still hadn’t decided. I returned to quarters around ten o’clock, closed the door, switched on the light and nearly jumped out of my skin.

My uncle was sitting there in the dark waiting like some creeper from a film noir movie. He laughed when I jumped.

“Right. Real funny. What are you doing in this part of the world?”

His smile slowly faded away. “Sit. I want to say something.”

Uncle Al wasn’t the sort of guy you said no to. I sat in the chair closest to the sofa where he’d parked his overbearing ass. He didn’t speak at first, just stared at me, and I have to tell you it took every bit of the self-discipline I’d learned to keep from squirming under that kind of scrutiny. But I knew it was some kind of test. I was supposed to be patient and wait it out. So I did.

“You’re going to be eighteen tomorrow.”

I smirked. “So I hear.”

He nodded. “Are you decided?”

I looked away. “Honestly? No. I’ve been hoping for a sign.”

“A sign, huh?”

My uncle didn’t seem to think that was a reliable approach to decision making.

“Well, I don’t know what kind of sign you’re expecting. I thought I’d stop by. Won’t be here tomorrow. So happy birthday.”

“Thanks.”

I stood when he got up to leave. He turned toward the door, but turned back like he’d forgotten something. I could almost see him mentally patting his pockets.

“Anything you want to ask me?”

I wouldn’t have thought so, but since he put it that way. There was something.

“I guess it’s clear what choice you made. Any regrets?”

He grinned. It was a thing so rare I couldn’t think if I’d ever seen him look pleased before.

“A good question for a seventeen-year-old.”

“Almost eighteen.”

“Indeed.” He nodded. “The answer is no. Not one. Hope that helps.”

I thought about it for a second. “Would you feel the same way if you died tomorrow?”

His grin got even bigger. “Definitely.”

With that he left without looking back and, in fact, it did help. Immensely.

Teachers are known to go on every year about how you’d better get ready because the next year is going to be so much harder. But it never is. It’s always the same thing. So when I signed on to Black Swan for life and they told me it was about to get real, I just smirked on the inside and thought, “Yeah. Yeah. I’ve heard it before.”

Looking back now I could slap my little bratty self for acting like a punk. Even if I kept it on the inside. For once the future of dread hadn’t been overstated. It had been understated.

The next four years were rigorous enough to make the first five look like a glide on a paddle board over a smooth-as-glass lake. Naturally, once we understood that we were going to be vampire hunters, and what that meant, we began to pay attention in earnest. But here’s the bare truth of that. Nothing they can do or say can truly prepare you for what it feels like the first time you are face to face with a pale-eyed leech who wants to rip you apart with virus-dripping fangs.

My internship was mostly served as backup to the Grunewald Unit knights. I went to Brazil for a few months and did an awful rotation in Central America looking for Chupacabra. Ew. Things give me willies when I think about them. Yeah. They’re even worse than vampire.

I was always sent back to Berlin though. Like it was home base. That was okay with me. There was a lot of action and the Grunewald knights were good solid teachers. They taught me about slaying vampire and they taught me about camaraderie.

Then, of course, there were German girls. I mean, you’ve gotta love girls who have beer with breakfast. Right?

It was a good place to pay my dues and hone my skills.

Three years later, I was told that I was being sent back to the States. To Jefferson Unit. Rumor had it that I was going to be a vampire slayer in New York, New York.

I wasn’t very impressed when the jeep stopped in front of J.U. It was the farthest thing from Grunewald Castle. A plain brick building with not a single window showing. Looked more like a prison than a Black Swan facility.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t require frills to complete me. It was just an observation. I stopped at the intercom.

“Knock. Knock.”

“Who’s there?”

“Landsdowne.”

“Just a minute.”

I heard the buzzer and pushed on the door. My first thought was that there was an awful lot of activity for a place that looked so quiet on the outside. I hoisted my duffel up higher on my shoulder and stopped a kid going by.

“Sovereign’s office?”

“Down one level and turn right.”

I nodded my thanks and headed toward the elevators. The central area was impressive with its three-story ceiling, modern gleam and polish. The place looked like a prison from the front, but once inside it was open and light with a view to what appeared to be a park on the other side of tall windows.

When the elevator opened, I checked to make sure the down arrow was lit, stepped inside and pushed S1. A couple of girls, well, young women I guess you’d say, got in after me in workout clothes. One of them looked me over, taking in the duffel, “Transferring in?”

“Yeah.”

She smiled. “I’m Ellsbeth. I work in medical.” The elevator opened. When I realized they weren’t getting off, I finally got the hint and exited. “See you around.”

The sovereign’s office wasn’t hard to find. The reception area was glass to the hallway, but I checked the plaque just to be sure. Sol Nemamiah, Sovereign.

There was a kid at the desk, young enough to be a student. He looked up when I walked in and dropped my duffel.

“Transfer from Berlin,” I said.

“Go on in.” He pointed to a closed door.

I opened the door, hoping the instruction wasn’t a new-guy-hazing prank.

The first thing I saw was a mess of blond hair. I knew he was an elf because he had some of that hair tucked behind the ears. I guess he could have been fae, but I didn’t know of any fae knights.

When he turned around, I had three thoughts. That he was just about my age. That his eyes sparkled with elf mischief. And that the only word to describe him was beautiful.

Now don’t get me wrong. I have a strong preference for the opposite sex and don’t usually think about whether other guys are attractive or not. But this elf had it going and I would have had to be blind to not notice.

I looked past him to the man behind the desk. You could tell it was the Sovereign by the way his jaw seemed permanently clenched. He pointed at the elf. “Rammel Aelshelm Hawking, meet Basil Rathbone Landsdowne.”

The elf stuck out his hand. I took it and shook. That’s when it registered. I laughed and blurted out, “You’re P.P.”

“Excuse me?” he said, with his brow knitting.

I looked at the Sovereign and thought better of saying more. “I’ll explain. Later.”

“You two are getting a try out as partners, attached to B Team, starting,” he looked at his monitor, “Thursday. Mr. Hawking, Mr. Landsdowne’s quarters are next to yours. Show him the way.”

“Aye,” said the elf as he moved toward the outer office. He held the door open to the hall and gestured toward the elevator. “Welcome to worm patrol.”

“Should I complain about the assignment?”

He laughed. “I’ve been told that’s what they call rotation in the Big Apple.”

“Oh.”

Once inside he pushed the third floor button and leaned back against the wall facing me. “So what was the peepee thing?”

I grinned. “Not peepee! P. P. Your reputation is widely known. Stands for parties and pussy.”

He cocked his head and gave a tiny smile. “’Tis what they say about me?”

“Yeah, man. It could be worse. They could be sayin’ you’re a limp dick wanker who’s scared of girls.”

He combined a grin with a sly look that I’d come to think of as Ram’s trademark smile. “Spent a lot of time alone as a kid. I suppose there was some pent-up party in me. Maybe I’ve over-compensated. I would no’ want P.P. on my tombstone.” The elevator car stopped and the doors opened. He held his hand on the door seam while I hoisted my duffel and stepped out. I walked next to him down the wide hallway. It was carpeted with a rich red pattern, like a five-star hotel. The plus column features of J.U. were definitely all on the inside.

“So,” he continued as we walked, “your name is Basil Rathbone…”

“Landsdowne. My mother named me after some famous swordsman.” I chuckled, looking down at the carpet. “Maybe she set me up for this gig. You think?”

“Could be. I met a guy named Rathbone when I was thirteen. He recruited me. Big fella. No’ quite a giant, but really big.”

“Yeah. That was my uncle. He’s not that big. Matter of fact he’s just about the same size as you and me.”

“No shit?” he asked. I nodded. “I guess things looked bigger when I’d just turned thirteen.” He stopped in front of a door with my name on the plaque. “This is you. That’s me one door down,” he said as he pointed down the hallway.

“Okay.” I waved my new ID in front of the sensor and heard the internal click.

“Dump your stuff and I’ll show you ‘round.”

“Sure. Give me five.” The place was a lot bigger and nicer than I expected. In fact, it was a step up. I could stand being called “worm patrol” if all the perks were like that.

I followed the elf’s suggestion, dumped my duffel, looked around and walked back out. He was leaning against the wall facing my door looking at his fingernails. He seemed to read my thoughts when he said, “’Twas exactly my reaction when I was moved up here a day ago. ‘Tis the big leagues. Compensation for risk I guess. If we pass probation, we’re goin’ to be knights.”

I let that sink in. “Knights,” I repeated.

I’ve been lookin’ at that plaque on your door. “What do you go by?”

“Basil.”

“Noooooo.” He drew the word out, shaking his head. “That will never do. Try it on for size. ‘Hold the fucker at bay, Basil.’ ‘Basil, jump back. He’s goin’ for your dick!’” I had to laugh. It looked like I’d scored a partner who was entertaining. “See? It just will no’ do.”

“So you want to rename me? What do you suggest?”

“Shorten your limey last name to Lan. I like the sound of it. Girls will, too.”

“Oh, yeah? What do you go by?”

He smiled. “Ram.”

I nodded, somehow knowing that it suited him perfectly. “No promises but I’ll try it out for a couple of days.” Walking out of the elevator into the Hub, I said, “Have you met the guys we’re paired with?”

“Yeah.”

He didn’t elaborate. So I decided to save the interrogation for later.

Ram gave me a tour of the facility. He was thorough when he was on a mission, left no corner unexplored. He introduced me to more people than I could remember then took me back to the Hub.

Opening his arms as if he was embracing the space, he said, “The perfect end to the comprehensive tour. The lounge. Off limits to students. What’ll you have?” he asked, sitting down at a table near the double-sided fireplace and gesturing at the bar attendant at the same time.

“What do you suggest?”

Ram grinned. “Keep it simple. Irish whiskey.”

“Oh, no,” I said, shaking my head. “I haven’t eaten in a day. No alcohol on my empty stomach.”

“Great Paddy, man! What kind of a shit host am I?!?”

“Well…”

“Let’s get you some food. What do you…? Hold on. Let me guess.” He tapped his fingers and jiggled his right knee, his brows knitted like he was trying to divine my food preferences. “I’m guessin’ you’re a French dip man.”

It wasn’t something I would have thought of, but once he said it out loud, I couldn’t imagine wanting anything else.

“Yeah.” I grinned. “That actually sounds great.”

“With tomato soup.”

“Okay.”

The bar attendant arrived. “I’ll have my usual. My friend, Lan here, will have a cup of tomato soup, Caesar salad, and a French dip. Do no’ dawdle and do no’ be stingy with the beef. The lad is hungry and very likely still growin’.”

I had my doubts that I was still growing, but I had no doubt that I’d been partnered with a force of nature. But that was okay because he gave every indication of being a force of good nature. It was too soon to judge, but I was already feeling like, when it came to partners, I could have done a lot worse. Only time would tell, but I might have won the lottery. And I might just survive Black Swan, with a guy like him at my side.

“So take your mind off your empty belly by tellin’ me about yourself. For starters you sound American. You from here?”

“Born in Santa Clara. You know where that is?”

“Everybody in Black Swan knows where that is. Crawlin’ with vampire. Where did you do secondary school?”

“San Francisco. You?”

“Berlin.”

“I did my internship there! Must have just missed each other. Es ist eine seltsame Welt.”

“Aye. ‘Tis a strange world.”

“How do you like it here so far?”

“Think we might have landed on our feet.”

“Yeah. Seems alright. So far.” The attendant set a whiskey down in front of Ram and put a water down for me. “So. About the other two assigned to B Team?”

Ram shook his head. “Met ‘em briefly. My first impression is that they come with sticks up their asses. Sittin’ up just a little too straight if you ask me. One of them is a berserker.”

“No way! I thought they were all gone. Stuff of legends and all that.”

Ram was shaking his head. “He’s real and big as life. And I mean big! I guess you’ll meet them soon enough if they’re sendin’ us out startin’ day after tomorrow.”

“Kinda hard to believe. Goin’ out unsupervised, I mean.”

“I hear you. But we have a day to fatten you up for the leeches and maybe get laid a few times.”

I spluttered into my water. “A few times?”

At that point, I thought he was mostly bluff and bluster, but it turned out that he could have had a new sexual experience every hour if he’d wanted. Girls did things trying to get his attention that made me feel embarrassed for them. The notice he got for being beautiful made it hard to be inconspicuous, which is what works best for vampire hunters. He took to wearing a black knit hat that covered the ears and most of that blondeness. Seemed like those two things combined were like catnip to women. But you know what? After a couple of days I couldn’t even imagine another partner. When Black Swan put us together, they must have used some kind of magic. They knew what they were doing. We complemented each other’s strengths and weaknesses. And it’s no small thing that he made things that should have been drudgery or tedium seem like fun.

We needed that counterbalance because there was plenty about our lives that was not fun.

It turned out that Ram was kind of right about the other partnership that made up B Team. Storm and Kay were straight arrow types, but I didn’t object to that. Straight arrows are predictable. Well, I mean, so long as they don’t let their berserker out.

Certainly everybody can’t be Mr. Party like Ram. Sometimes a situation calls for a serious attitude. Vampire hunting is one of those situations. The most serious one of us, Storm, was the one we started listening to, like our lives depended on it. And I guess they did.

Ram was technically the most senior member of B Team because he’d arrived a couple of hours ahead of them, but it wasn’t a distinction he cared about. He seemed more interested in getting the job done and staying alive than being in charge. So I had no problem with his priorities.

Kay got stuck with the nickname Ram gave him, just like I did. Not that I’m complaining. I wore the name “Lan” like I’d never been called anything else and the fucker might have even been right about guessing that girls would like it better than Basil.

Yeah. Storm and Kay were good guys that I learned to love and they did their share of snatching my hiney from the jaws of death.

Until they didn’t.

There is more to Rammel Hawking than meets the eye. If one were to go by appearances alone they would see a beautiful elf with unique charm and who has a flair for somewhat colorful language. As it turns out there are many layers to Sir Rammel Hawking. The novel, Vampire Hunter: Rammel Hawking, gives readers details about the events of his life that shaped him, as well as his perspective on meeting his mate, Elora Laiken.
When I picked up My Familiar Stranger, the first book in the Knights of the Black Swan series, I was hooked; like many others I was completely smitten with Ram, and I loved his story. When I learned there was going to be a book detailing their courtship from Ram’s point of view, needless to say, I was beyond excited. What I didn’t know was that the book would turn out to be so much more.

Usually when there is a book retelling another character’s point of view that’s exactly what you get, there is nothing more. Danann, however, went the extra mile. The book follows him through his childhood, his recruitment into the Order, the death of Lan, and of course the meeting of his lady love; and if that didn’t have fans chomping at the bit to get their hands on this read there are also some unique views from your other favorite characters as well!
I thoroughly enjoyed Vampire Hunter: Rammel Hawking. Not only did I learn new things about one of my favorite characters, it was just really nice to revisit where it all began!  

~~~~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

Ram’s book is partly My Familiar Stranger retold from his unique point of view with chapter insights from other significant characters. The story begins the first time he runs away to the wild magic of the New Forest at age ten, follows his recruitment by Black Swan along with his training to be a vampire hunter, tells the story of the death of his first partner, and his romance with Elora Laiken..


Scorpio was an assassin; he had to be cold and calculated because had a job to do, and he had to finish it at any cost. After an assignment went wrong involving a mage and his mate a curse was laid on him by an old witch. The curse stated he would meet his fated one, and he would have an overwhelming need to claim her. He would need her like his next breath, but he would never have her. His mate would see him for the monster that he was, and he would forever be alone.
Scorpio is a character I absolutely fell in love with, I dare say out of all of Sharon Kay’s books (and I’ve read them all) he is my favorite to date. There are several reasons I fell for this character; the fact he is a strong sexy alpha male is a given. He touched my heart because he is misunderstood, he has a very dark past that no one except the Watchers who took him in are willing to look beyond, yet no one bothered learn why he did the work he did.  Secondly, I saw his story as one of honor and redemption. When he was taken by the coven of witches he had hurt during his time as an assassin, he owned up to his wrongs against them and worked to make amends. Even when he had the opportunity to leave he stayed true to his word.

Tessa is a witch who is gifted in metals and is Scorpio’s fated mate. Just like the old witch’s curse foretold she despises the man she sees as nothing more than a killer. Her coven has been through many hardships, and hers, it seems, are just beginning. The strong willed, and able bodied female is a perfect fit for the former assassin. No one can accuse Tessa of being a shrinking violet. She lives for her people, even if it means sacrificing her own freedom and happiness.
I felt like I waited forever on the latest Watcher’s Kiss novel! I find Sharon Kay’s novels so sexy and entertaining; once I pick one up I’m not laying it down until I read the last page! Assassin’s Kiss had me reeled in from page one with it’s drama, excitement, and passion. I certainly hope in future novels Kay gives us a glimpse of what is happening with Scorpio and Tessa, because these are two characters that are hard to let go of!

~~~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

*can be read as a stand alone story*

Warrior Scorpio finds himself alone on a botched op. No weapons, no communication devices, injured…and instantly recognized by a group of witches who want him dead.

Witch Tessa promises to marry a rival leader to save her people. But she never planned on the new prisoner in her coven. Scorpio, a rough, former mercenary makes the outrageous claim that she belongs to him.

Even from behind bars, the longer Scorpio stays, the more he unsettles Tessa and she questions all she thought she knew. Choosing him will put everyone she cares for at risk. He’s nothing like she expected, and the last thing she could dare to want.

shadowpassionMarek Strigoi and his family have moved on to America, New Orleans to be exact. Marek may have found success in the 21st century, but he has not forgotten his need for revenge against Mercea Ravagiu, the vampire who inflicted so much pain on Marek and his family.

 

Marek,  who has literally been to hell and back, never ceases to amaze me. He moves to a new country, and learns the ways of the people. He opens Stryker’s, which has become one of New Orleans’ top restaurants.  He is very intelligent and has an ability to blend into his surroundings making it hard to believe he has been around for more than one lifetime. I’m fascinated with Marek, because through the series I’ve seen many sides of him. He can be hard or tender; he blends into modern society, and yet retains an old world charm.

 

Vissage has a talent for bringing a story to life through vivid imagery, and creating intriguing characters. He pays great attention to detail, and he doesn’t rush the story. There are also enough twists in the story to keep the reader captivated.
If you are interested in reading Marek’s story know these aren’t stand alone novels. You need to start from the beginning, because you are following the character’s history over a vast period of time. I give Shadow Passion 4 stars.

New Orleans welcomes its newest inhabitants when the Strigoisti come to town.

 

Now owners of Stryker’s, the Big Easy’s latest and most trendy restaurant, vampire Marek Strigoi and family continue their search for their father’s killer with the assistance of the city’s aventurieri leader.

 

The post-Katrina atmosphere seems peaceful enough, but looks can be deceiving. An old flame from Marek’s past appears with startling news. There’s a love affair for Dan when the Strigoi cousin at last makes his sexual choice. The Southern sectiuna believes Marek’s the vampire savior…and there’s Maggie, a lovely redhead who’s eerie familiar though Marek swears they’ve never met.

 

Even more dangerous forces are at work in New Orleans’ bayous as Mircea Ravagiu enlists human thralls to destroy his enemies, and targets Dan as his first victim.

 

The Strigoisti are now in the Twenty-first Century and they’ve brought their Nineteenth Century desire for revenge with them.

 

Is New Orleans ready for a storm of another kind?

I am a huge Sharon Kay fan. Her books are full of sexy alpha males, and steamy romance. Tanner and Saige’s story was no different. I loved their chemistry, and watching their relationship grow. Kay managed to pack a lot of passion and excitement in a few pages. My only complaint was that it was over far too soon! I really hope Tanner and Saige appear in future books.

slake their lust. When Tanner meets Saige he can’t get their night together out of his head, it just seemed his connection to her went a lot deeper than just a hook up during the mating season. Saige is involved in something dark and dangerous, and Tanner may have to risk himself to help her.

Escape from witchwood hollow“Don’t go into the woods.  You won’t come back. “  People in Arnn, New York, have lived with the legend all their lives.  People who go into Witchwood Hollow don’t return, or at least they didn’t in the past.  Honoria finds out exactly how and where the past and present collide in this super interesting story that takes place in three different time periods and outside of time as well.

 

The main portion of the book is set in 2001 a month after the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York.  Honoria’s parents perished there, and she and her brother, along with their aunt and uncle, move to Arnn.   The new town brings many changes for Honoria and her family.  Honoria, grieving for her parents, is fascinated by the local legends of the witch with power.  

 

Other parts of the book are like a historical novel..  Thankfully the chapters have date headings to help you keep the time periods straight as  the story also takes place in 1670 and 1850.  The book switches back and forth between the time periods as Witchwood Hollow’s legend unfolds and the people trapped there are revealed.  
Jordan Elizabeth has undertaken a big project with the different time periods but for the most part handles it very well.  I was a little confused at first but quickly caught on.  Everything ties together well at the end although I found the ending to be a little odd and unexpected.  Escape from Witchwood Hollow could be sad and gloomy but is mysterious instead.  This stand alone story is classified as young adult but is diverse enough to appeal to older readers as well.  I enjoyed it and recommend Escape from Witchwood Hollow with both thumbs up and a handy magical compass.

(amazon.com)

Everyone in Arnn – a small farming town with more legends than residents – knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.

After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.

Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.

To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.

How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?

DreamsDreams is the second book on the Ravenswynd series. The story picks up where the first book left off. Elizabeth and Emrys are getting ready to enjoy their honeymoon, but with Rohan still lurking in the shadows the couple face a future of uncertainty.

 

In my review of the first book I wrote about the main characters. This novel brings familiar faces, and some new ones as well. Rohan is a character we met in the first novel, and he is a character you love to hate. He is absolutely despicable, and he makes the perfect villain. I really took a liking to Elizabeth’s assistant Kelsey as well. Her story is really touching, and I find myself rooting for her.

 

The first few chapters of the book moved a little slow for me. The character interaction between Elizabeth and Emrys just didn’t seem to capture me. However, Jones caught my attention when she once again brought the story with Rohan to the forefront. He will go to any lengths to gain the upper hand in his vendetta against Emrys. I can’t help but wonder what evil scheme he will put into play next, and that is what will keep me coming back for more.

Let me tell you a little-known secret. Being turned into a vampire doesn’t necessarily guarantee freedom from fear or danger. All of that silly happy-ever-after gibberish about immortality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be either. And furthermore, living forever in a state of bliss and contentedness is actually a blatant lie. I wish someone had told me.

Elizabeth Amarande Rose Bertrand’s first day as a vampire was definitely not what she’d expected, what with nearly losing her beloved twin sister. And after a short reprieve and a warm welcome to Ravenswynd, her new home in England, it gets even worse. Her immortal life takes on a whole new twist and she finds herself living in a perpetual state of fear. Faced with unsettling rumors and revelations, her dreams become real-life nightmares. Suddenly finding herself up to her neck in

a mind-bending abduction, Elizabeth believes that death itself would be better than being bound to someone she despises – bound by ancient law – for all eternity. The old saying is only too true:

There actually are fates worse than death – even when you’re a vampire. And once again…there will be blood.

LegendsElizabeth and Melinda are identical twins attending their senior year of college. Elizabeth is the more reserved twin, but her life begins to change when her eyes meet those of a handsome stranger, and there is something about him that draws her in a way she has never experienced.

 

Elizabeth is beautiful, but in no way vain. She is intelligent, innocent, and a little naive.  Prophecy brought Emrys in search of Elizabeth, and when he saw her he knew she was meant to be his.  He is a traditional  man who possess intelligence and charm. I liked Melinda and Elizabeth’s best friend Fiona as well. Melinda is like Elizabeth in many ways, except she is slightly more outspoken and experienced.  Fiona is more like Elizabeth in her thoughtfulness.

 

Legend states  there is a party every ten years is for a clan of vampires known as the Ravens. It is by invitation only, and they are given a chance to find a mate. Humans attend to possibly become donors, or vampires. Jones penned a wonderful paranormal romance that really caught my attention. Legends focused primarily on Elizabeth and Emrys, and I am interested to see where their journey takes them. I am also curious to see what will become of her twin!

 

I would consider this to be a new age novel. Although this genre is usually not my cup of tea I found this read quite enjoyable.

There’s a legend…about a party…hosted by vampires. An event so exclusive – the invitation is by word of mouth – with strict rules that must-be-followed. So what happens when your best friend is invited and practically begs you to go along with her?
You go, of course!

Divide and ConquerLea thought she was destined for something greater than being a translator when she arrived in Seattle. She was supposed to be making waves as a scientist.  It turns out she is destined for much more. Nieve is a warrior and the Royal Champion.  She and another female are supposed to fulfill a prophecy that will save the Elonian world. Her only problem is convincing Lea she is the chosen one.

Lea is an extremely intelligent young woman, but she seems to lack confidence in herself. She certainly doesn’t believe she is warrior material.  Nieve is a warrior; she has no time for relationships.  Her biggest fear seems to be emotional attachment.  The two women begin to forge a friendship and a bond, and through this you can see both of their characters grow.

Carmen Fox has penned a very interesting debut novel.  Two worlds hang in the balance, Elonia and the human world are threatened by the Shades should the divide between the realms fall. This Urban fantasy has plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat!
