Author Bio:

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Kristin Miller writes sweet and sassy

contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and paranormal romance of all varieties. Kristin

has degrees in psychology, English, and education, and taught high school and middle school

English before crossing over to a career in writing. She lives in Northern California with her

alpha male husband and their two children. She loves chocolate way more than she should and

the gym less. You can usually find her in the corner of a coffee shop, laptop in front of her and

mocha in hand, using the guests around her as fuel for her next book.

Book Synopsis:

Carter Griffin, enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack, has a problem. He’s been offered the

promotion of his dreams…if he can find a wife to prove he’s over his playboy ways. But Carter’s

already walked the matrimonial road and bought the stinkin’ T-shirt. Besides, a werewolf only

gets one fated mate. Been there, done that.

All werewolf dog trainer Faith Hamilton wants to do is earn enough green stuff to put her

younger brother through college. Okay, okay, so she also totally wants Carter, her sexy next-
door neighbor, to look at her as more than a friend. It’s too bad size 12 and plain isn’t his type.

At all.

The two friends strike a deal to help one another out. They must face a variety of challenges

from a psycho ex-girlfriend to a Yorkie with a shoe fetish…and that pesky problem of only

having one-fated mate in a lifetime. Will a relationship ruin their friendship…or spark a love

neither anticipated?

Tagline: Love, laughter, howling ever after…

This review is to celebrate the release day of So I Married a Werewolf (Seattle Wolf Pack #3) by Kristen Miller!

Carter Griffin has waited a long time to be promoted to detective. He is currently an enforcer for the Seattle Wolf Pack. The only thing holding him back from becoming detective is the fact he is unmated. When he finds out his best friend Faith Hamilton, a dog trainer and blogger, is putting her brother through college and is having trouble with funds he hatches a plan. He and Faith will marry, and he will pay for her brother’s college tuition. What they don’t know is how this will affect their comfortable friendship.

Carter is an alpha playboy with trust issues. His first mating went down in flames and he is determined it won’t happen again. It seems to me he would much rather be married to the job. I love his easy friendship with Faith. They are everything best friends should be, movie nights, beers, talking and a lot of playful banter. Faith really has the hots for Carter, but doesn’t feel as though like she has a shot, and she wouldn’t do anything to put their friendship in jeopardy. It made me sad that Faith didn’t believe she was worthy of Carter because she is a beautiful woman, with a great personality.

I had so much fun reading this story; it was like a paranormal romantic comedy. I was grinning the whole time I was absorbing the pages. I also liked the way it was written, it was fun but Miller did such a great job with the character dynamic between Carter and Faith. She added enough drama to give the story depth. All of the writing elements came together to make the perfect formula. I had to give So I Married a Werewolf a five star review, because Miller had me from the start and I enjoyed every second!

So I Married a Werewolf is the third book in the Seattle Wolf Pack series, but it stands very well on its own. This is the first book I have read from Kristen Miller, but I guarantee it won’t be the last!

Beauty’s Beast is the story of Lord Erik Trevayne.  Erik is cursed the night his first wife dies.  Lord Trevayne is now changing into something less than human, and he needs an heir before his transformation is complete.  Kristine is about to go to the gallows for murder when she is spared by Erik. He takes her as his wife only so she can bear a child for him. Kristine had heard stories about the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but she is determined to try to give her marriage a chance.  Lord Trevayne isn’t looking for a true wife, but soon finds himself having feelings for Kristine. Erik cannot bring himself to let Kristine into his heart, because he believes a beauty such as she could never love a beast.

 

I both adored and pitied Erik and Kristine. They have both endured hardship, but most of all they are both consumed by loneliness. It was Kristine who really surprised me the most.  Her strength and stubbornness astounded me, but underneath that is her capability to be so caring after life had been so seemingly cruel. Erik is a caring man although he tries to be cold and indifferent. His character was so heartbreaking and yet beautiful.

 

Ashley made me feel like I was in a different time and place, and I was totally lost in the story. The thing that struck me the most was the vivid imagery, and the emotion behind it. You know an author has written something worth reading when they can bring forth the emotions in the reader that is being felt by the character. I could not put down Ashley’s enchanting version of the Beauty and the Beast story. Readers are sure to flock to this heartfelt tale!

Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself. . .

And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born–that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts…

dark companionMaya DeLeina has been a favorite of mine since I read her Ambrose Heights Vampire series. Her recent release, Dark Companion, the first in the Vampire Architects Series, has simply escalated her must read status on my list of authors. The Vampire Architects are an elite group of vampires who have special abilities and are tasked with helping to save certain chosen souls from becoming the eternal property of those in the underworld. The leader, Dorian has the ability to sense which Architects will be used for each case, and also chooses which souls will be saved from their prophesied underworld destiny. For each case there is a Prophecy Keeper, a Tracker, and a Protector that will watch and learn everything about the person they are assigned to throughout their life, from birth to death.

For reasons unknown, Dorian has chosen to intervene in Isla’s destiny, to save her from becoming an eternal concubine to Cassian in the underworld. Joey is to be her Tracker, Ryker will be her Prophecy Keeper, and Warwick is given the important task of being her Protector. For 40 years the vampires have watched Isla and her prophecy until at last it’s time to intervene. Isla is about to be thrown into a world that she only thought existed in folklore and despite the rules set in place to protect the Prophecy, she and Warwick fall hard for each other. Warwick knows he’s made a mistake by letting an emotional connection come in to play and if he doesn’t erase all memory of himself from Isla, the prophecy will fail and they won’t be able to save her. Isla proves to be a special case and the Architects find themselves in unfamiliar territory.

Warwick is about as perfect as they come. He’s handsome, caring, and the things the man can do with an air mattress,…..have mercy! Isla, despite having her world turned upside down, remains a strong character, yet shows vulnerability which makes her a very realistic character that is easy to relate to. Dorian is a character I wanted to throw something at. He’s more the stereotypical vampire with his giant sense of superiority that makes him quite the asshole for lack of a better word. I have a feeling though, that there is something more to him that just hasn’t been uncovered yet. Joey and Ryker are equally intriguing and I hope to see them in their own books later in the series.

Maya DeLeina has a way with vampires that keeps her books fresh and exciting. With characters that are mysterious and sexy, yet humorous and real. The vampires in this series not only have unique abilities, but also have tools that they use that are technologically advanced which is not something you generally see paired with vampires. I can’t even begin to get into the sex in this book. It heats up very quickly and just doesn’t stop. Warwick and Isla both burn up the pages and all I can say is, where can I get some red scarves that can do THAT! (yeah, you’ll have to read the book to find out what “THAT” is.)  I gave Dark Companion 5 stars easily as I was enthralled from the beginning and flew through the pages just dying to know what would happen next. There was a large cliffhanger at the end and I cannot wait for Maya DeLeina to get the next book out so I can find out what they are going to do about Isla. Okay, I really can’t wait to get more of Warwick, but he’s just the icing on the cake of this great new series!

Vampire Architects, Book One
Warwick, an Elite member of the Vampire Architects, was chosen as Isla Joseph’s Protector at the moment of her birth. Four decades later, he struggles to hide the love he harbors for his charge. When the time comes for her to learn of Warwick’s existence, lust is a beast he can’t contain, nor can Isla fight her instant attraction to this mysterious “stranger”. The pair comes together in a frenzied feast of flesh.

But their intimacy has consequences. Consequences for Isla, when she discovers her lover is a vampire…for the team of Architects, who are struggling to save her from a horrific future…for Warwick, when he’s forced to wipe every trace of himself from Isla’s memory.

Isla, Warwick and the Architects will soon discover love isn’t so easily erased. And while fate may have dark designs for Isla…destiny has other plans.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00029]Please join us in congratulating Sharon Kay on her new release Wicked Flames, the 3rd book in the Solsti Prophecy series.  Sharon has stopped by VRB to let us pry for a little while by answering some questions. Not only that, but Sharon didn’t stop there, she is also offering 2 very lucky readers a chance to win their own copies of Wicked Flames! Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the interview. Now, without further ado, I give you Sharon Kay.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Sharon! Welcome to Vampire Romance Books, I am happy you could join us and answer some questions for the fans!  Hello! I’m excited to be here today!

Let us start with the personal stuff *rubs hands together* Why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself, like where are you from or how do you feel about Lima beans.  Haha, I’ll pass on the Lima beans! I will accept truckloads of Oreos and gallons of black coffee, though. I live near Chicago and I love it – love all the seasons, even winter. Well, especially winter, and I seem to be in the minority around here!

When you aren’t writing what do you enjoy doing?  I have a young son, and we are having a blast right now doing all kinds of outdoor stuff together. Summers are short here, so we pack a lot of activities into these couple months!

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be, and why?  Oh, this is so tough! I just created a Pinterest board called “Places I need to go” and it has over 100 pins already! Ok, let me think…My ideal vacation involves a tropical beach, so I’d say anywhere in the Caribbean, maybe the Virgin Islands.

*Wicked grin* Most embarrassing moment, or would you like to take a pass on that? Just kidding, we’re not going to let you take a pass.  Haha! I am a complete dork so I have LOTS of embarrassing moments. Hmm…once when I was fourteen, my best friend and I tried to bake a frozen pizza in my parents’ oven, and we put it in upside down!

OK, I am getting serious now. What inspired you to write, and why the paranormal genre?  I LOVE paranormal romance. It’s almost all I read, so creating characters with special powers came fairly easily. Any—this may sound weird—but my characters inspired me to write their story. I didn’t plan to write a novel…the story kind of found me, and kept me writing.

Are your family and friends supportive of your writing, have they read your books? They are all supportive, for which I am grateful! About half have read my books. The rest aren’t huge fans of “things that can’t happen in real life” as they put it. (Translation: They prefer non-fiction.)  And that’s fine. Everyone has their preferences.

For our readers who aren’t familiar with the Solsti Prophecy books, would you give them a summary? The Solsti are four women who each control one of the elements: Air, water, fire, and earth. They grew up thinking they’re human who happen to have unusual powers, until one night two of them run into a demon warrior. Their true lineage is revealed, and also the fact that they exist to fight an enemy yet unseen, but more powerful than anything in all the realms. As each woman’s powers grow, they work closely with the demon males (cue sparks and sizzle)! Oh, and the three sisters had a fourth sister, who died when she was very young…yet the Elders state that all four Solsti exist. But who and where is she? *grins* The series will have four novels when it’s complete.

What gave you the idea for the series?  The idea formed in my head one weekend a few years ago, out of the blue, and I HAD to start writing Wicked Wind. I couldn’t sit still until I did.

I am madly in love with the Lash Demon Kai from Wicked Waves. I think he should have been mine *winks*. Do you have a favorite character? If so, who is it and what do you love about them?  Hmm, Kai appreciates the extra attention! But I can’t pick one favorite! I seriously want to go to Demon Central and hang out with all of them. Maybe pick up some MMA-style self-defense moves from Brooke and Nicole.

You have just released Wicked Flames. What is next for you, and can we have a hint?  Next up this fall is my first novella, called Kissed By A Demon Spy. It’s about Garnet, a minor character from Wicked Waves. Her page time in the novel was minimal, but her significance was HUGE, and I never had a chance to explain what happened to her. Oh, and in January, I’ll release the fourth Solsti book! (And reveal where she has been all this time!)

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?  Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Investigate the publishing industry, both traditional and indie, so that you’re as informed as you can be when you decide which direction to go. And most importantly, JUST WRITE if you have an idea that won’t be quiet. Don’t stop to edit until you’re done with the rough draft – just get those words on paper!

What do you feel are the most effective ways of promoting yourself and your books?  I find that having 99 cent sales is an effective tool, since we all love a deal. Also, emails targeted to those who want news about paranormal romance are helpful.

It seems as though social media is essential for any author or other businesses for that matter. How do you feel about social media?  Yes, social media is essential and also fun, but can take up a lot of time if we aren’t careful (cough *Pinterest* cough)! But I LOVE being able to connect with readers. You know, hearing about everyone’s favorite books, book boyfriends, movies, junk food, the weather…anything goes!

Where are your books available for purchase?  Wicked Wind will soon be an Amazon exclusive title. Wicked Waves and Wicked Flames are available on Amazon, B&N.com, Smashwords, Kobo, and iTunes

Is there anything you would like to add or say to your fans?  Just that you guys are the best, and I appreciate whenever you take time to leave me a comment or a review! Without you, this series wouldn’t have continued past the first book, so XOXO!

Sharon, thank you so much for stopping by VRB and talking to us. I wish you the best of luck with the release of Wicked Flames, and I hope you will visit with us again.  It’s been fun, thank you for having me!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00029]To say that Gin Bonham is stubborn may be the understatement of the century. She is a Solsti like her sisters Brooke and Nicole, but she wants nothing to do with her role. Nicole and Brooke have embraced their power and have chosen to follow their destiny. Gin sees her ability to manipulate fire as a curse, she doesn’t have time for demons and their problems; she wants a normal life helping humans. Mathias is a Lash demon with abilities as a hunter. He is also very gifted at persuasion, and it is his mission to get Gin on their side.

I enjoyed getting to know Gin’s character. In past books I think I really misjudged her. Aside from unconditional love for her sisters, I found her to be distant and maybe a bit selfish. As it turns out she is beautiful, witty, headstrong, and extremely intelligent. All that holds Gin back is fear. Mathias is a warrior and a hunter. He is sexy, dangerous, and completely charming. In the beginning he is all business, and perhaps a little harsh. I loved the way Gin wrapped this hardened hunter around her little pinky!

Sharon Kay is one of my must read authors now, and the Solsti Prophecy is one of my favorite series. Since the first novel Wicked Wind it seems like Kay can do no wrong! She reels you in with stories full of sex, passion, danger and excitement. Her writing is so detailed and imaginative, especially when she takes you from earth and into Torth. I can see the landscape of these unique and dangerous realms along with the various creatures vividly in my mind’s eye! Kay also gives us characters we care about, they never get old. It thrills me to see all of my favorites return and I want more! When I read the last page of Wicked Flame, I was so excited, because I knew there was more to come. In another sense I was losing my mind because Kay left with a twist in the tale, and I don’t know how long I can wait to see what’s next.

Every now and then a reader settles down into a series they hope will be around for a while. For me, this is one of those times. I don’t want the Solsti Prophecy to be over anytime soon. I also want Sharon Kay to send me a Lash demon to call my own!

Excerpt from Sharon Kay:

The distinct buttery smell of pecan instantly hit his nose. Gin stirred the hot chocolate with

cinnamon sticks, further intensifying the olfactory barrage.

“This smells way better than the Coffeehouse,” He walked up behind her, admiring the view

of her perfect ass in that tight little dress. Her hair hung long and loose down her back, and he

threaded his hands into it, wanting to touch every inch of her.

She sucked in a breath and turned to face him, eyes huge. Cradling one mug in her hands,

she offered it to him. “Taste.” Her voice was a strained whisper, a question and an offer

combined.

He toyed with the ends of her hair. “Not first on my tasting list, Ginger.”

Her pulse ticked frantically at the base of her throat, and her chest rose and fell with uneven

breaths. “Not…first…?”

He took the mug from her and set it on the counter. “No.” Fuck, she was so gorgeous,

standing here all dressed up for him. Dim light or sunlight, silk or jeans, she glowed with a fiery

sensuality. He planned to explore every nuance of her heat, starting when he was buried inside

her.

Holding her hair to the side, he kissed her shoulder. Her arms slid up his shoulders to clutch

his biceps and a breathy moan escaped her.

Nipping, he moved to her collarbone. Her neck. Anywhere but her parted lips, where he

knew she wanted him. He wanted her pliant, defenseless, and begging.

She gave a full-body shudder and tilted her head.

Pliant, defenseless, begging. He gripped her hips and traced circles with his thumbs. “Can

you guess what’s at the top of that list?”

“Um…” She blinked, but couldn’t hide the hunger in her eyes. “List?” Her hands dropped to

grip the edge of the counter behind her.

He brushed his lips across her ear. “We’re gonna play a game.”

Her eyebrows raised. “What kind?”

“A guessing game.”

“Hmm.” She bit her lip. “Like twenty questions?”

“Only two questions.”

“What am I guessing?”

“I have something of yours.” He swept his hands up and down in the air in front of him. “On

me.”

Her mouth dropped. “What? When did you—? Where?” her eyes darted over his chest and

arms, and down to his open hands.

“You get two guesses. For each wrong guess, I kiss you.”

She folded her arms, pushing her breasts up and giving him a cock-hardening view of her

cleavage. “That doesn’t sound so bad. How do you know I won’t guess wrong on pur—”

“After two guesses, you have to find it. Without talking. And you have to keep your eyes

closed until you do.”

Her eyes widened. “What if I don’t find it?”

“You get spanked.”

Adam is a half breed vampire trying to make his way as a VC warrior. He isn’t quite there yet, but he is so close he can taste it. Adam, Jill, and Steve are about to have the test that will decide their fates as warriors.  One thing that is keeping Adam from getting his head on straight and giving all of his attention to the rapidly upcoming test is his Angel. He wonders how Angelina could just stop loving him suddenly and marry another man. Adam’s friend Jill doesn’t buy the story and tries to convince Adam to go back and dig up the truth. What they dig up is going to not only impact half breeds, but also the purebloods, their mates, and humankind.

There has been a change in Adam since the last book that I can’t really find the words to describe. If I had to pick one I would call it maturity. He has learned to handle himself better, and he is beginning to really act like a warrior. I was glad to once again read about all of the warriors and their mates. All of the characters have become so familiar that over the last five books I have developed a fondness for all of them! A new and curious warrior is introduced in this book and his name is Jax Wheeler. I think this mysterious warrior is going to stir things up, and I am eager to see what he’s cooking!
Gabelman is still going strong with Adam. She has taken the suspense factor and turned it off the charts; something epic is on the horizon and Gabelman has my attention! The Protectors is another favorite series of mine. The development of all the characters is beautifully done, and the reader learns more about them with each book she writes. These stories are so easy to become wrapped up in, and I don’t think I will ever get enough! For all of the vampire lovers out there, if Teresa Gabelman isn’t on your radar hurry up and lock on! This sexy, bold, and exciting series is a must read!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00029]>

(from goodreads.com)
Gin Bonham lives with a dark secret. Born with an ability she never wanted, she builds her life around science and logic, running from the terror she is capable of causing. When sexy stranger Mathias spots her on a dance floor and cuts in, he leads Gin in a sensual rhythm that continues long after the music stops. But Mathias hides the fact that he knows exactly what she can do: in the deepest recesses of her mind lurks the power to manipulate fire. Destiny is coming for her and it doesn’t care if she’s ready or not.

Mathias possesses tracking and espionage skills so extraordinary that his fellow Lash demons call him The Hunter. Pursue and interrogate. He never fails. When he is tasked with coaxing Gin to work with the Lash demons against a common enemy, he relishes the challenge. But meeting her awakens a new, primal drive that pulls him toward her even as his tactics break her heart.

Failing to win Gin’s cooperation is not an option. But she is determined to flee, putting thousands of miles between her and any other supernatural creatures, including Mathias. Can she cool the charred embers of her emotions enough to forgive Mathias and embrace what she was meant to become? Or will her ability explode into something more than she can control?


Eve, a former vampire hunter, cannot cope with her life as a vampire. She has refused to embrace any of the vampire ways, and that includes feeding. Her vampire father, Oneiric, has tried to help her but to no avail. He decides to send her to Oslo, to her sister Lilith and her mate Lincoln in the hopes they can help her come to terms with who she is. Tor is a hunter for the Vehemens bloodline, and it is his mission to escort Eve to her family. What he doesn’t know about is Eve’s need for revenge against the lover and partner who betrayed her, and is responsible for what she has become.

In the beginning of the story Eve did not seem like a strong character. She was overtaken by anger and fear that held her back. When she begins to form camaraderie with Tor she began to show some real moxie. I liked how she stood up for what was fair whether it was the accepted way or not. Tor is a cold and calculated hunter. He is Dangerous and devastating; the kind of leading male that makes you swoon and makes your knees go weak. Although he tries to keep his barriers up Eve has a way of tearing them down, giving readers a glimpse of the true man inside. He and Eve having been through similar circumstances they have an understanding and can truly relate to each other regardless of their stations in their bloodline.

Heaton thrilled me again with Hunger! I read the book cover to cover in one sitting. This story had a real intensity to it; a very emotionally charged read. Getting lost in the story I wanted to be the one in there getting swept off my feet! Heaton just continues to get better and better, just when you think she can’t take you any higher in the Vampires Realm she writes something to make you soar!

Hunger (Vampires Realm Romance Series Book 8)

Betrayed by one of her own and turned into a vampire, hunter Eve is consumed by her hunger for vengeance and has spent five years surviving hell, driven to take the life of the man she once loved. But just as she is about to close in on the hunter-turned-vampire, an event is set in motion that threatens to see him slip beyond her grasp forever—the leader of her bloodline has sent an escort to bring her to the family’s mansion. To a nest of the very creatures she once hunted and loathes.

A vampire assassin hardened by centuries of service, Tor is a man of discipline and loyalty, never straying from his mission or the rules set out for him, and has purged all his weaknesses, including his emotions.
But the moment he meets the broken, fiery female he is to escort to Oslo, something dangerous awakens in him, something possessive and powerful, and when he is pulled into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who betrayed her, Tor discovers he will do anything to protect the woman slowly claiming his heart and give her the vengeance she desires—even break all the rules.

Can Eve embrace her new vampire nature in order to have her revenge and find a reason to live again in Tor? Can Tor and Eve stop the man who betrayed her and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Or will he succeed in creating a new army of hybrid vampires who will rise up against the purebloods?
