After more than a century, Marek Strigoi has been released from his punishment in Hell. Even after the years of torment he has not forgotten his vow of revenge against Mircea Ravagiu. Before Marek can follow through with any plans he must first adapt to a world much different than the one he left behind.

Vissage’s Shadow Players is a much different book than the first in the series. Shadow Lord, in my opinion, had a sense of urgency. The feud between Strigoi and Ravagiu was active, and intense. The time period of the first book also set a different mood. Although this book didn’t possess that same feeling of urgency I still found it fascinating.  Marek learned that nearly everything of his old life was gone, but he still had the strength to adapt to a new modern world and convincingly fit in. I had to admit I had to chuckle a couple of times when Marek began to use the vernacular of the late 1960’s. Although Shadow Lord and Shadow Players are very different books they are equally as good, and despite the difference in time periods, Vissage holds true to his writing style.
It is going to be necessary to read the first book in the series to truly grasp the story, but the series is well worth it. Shadow Players left me feeling that there is something very big on the horizon, and I can’t wait to see what lies in store for Marek in the future.

~~~~~~~

Vampire Marek Strigoi has been freed from the torments of Hell…and unceremoniously dropped into the 20th Century.

1968 Paris, to be exact.

Torn forever from his wife, the Marquise Celine, Marek tries to find meaning in a century where the word vampire merely means horror movies, and a pretty girl or two offers new love as he reunites with his brothers in London. What he doesn’t know is that his old enemy is also enjoying the British city, with a trail of blood-drained bodies creating a wave of terror equaling Jack the Ripper’s reign.

Without their knowledge, both men are on a collision course. Journeys end in lovers’ meetings but they also allow two old enemies to confront each other.

Revenge is a dish best served cold and Marek’s waited one hundred and fifty-five years to savor this particular meal.

Are the Fates finally going to allow him and his father’s murderer to meet?

Her Sinful Angel – Excerpt

“Do you know of any reason why someone might want to harm you?” The man took a step towards her and fear clashed with panic again, welling up to stir the sickness in her belly and bring bile up her throat.

 

She backed off a few steps, shaking her head in denial even though her heart and head screamed that there might be. It was entirely possible that someone was out to hurt her, and that meant that everything the man said had happened, had happened.

 

Someone had grabbed her, drugged her, and this man or someone from this house had saved her.

 

Nina’s back hit a wall and she gasped. The man’s eyes narrowed on her and she looked away, afraid he would see the truth in her eyes. She didn’t want him to get into trouble because of her, at least not any more than he already had.

 

Had he been the one to save her?

 

Her throat closed again as she thought about that, sure he must have fought the man off in order to help her. She squeezed her eyes shut and pressed her palms against the wall behind her, her fingertips clawing at the smooth surface as she tried to anchor herself in the swirling storm of her emotions.

 

“I want to leave.” She managed to get the words out but they were quiet, lacking the force and conviction she had wanted to convey in them.

 

Because part of her didn’t want to leave. Part of her feared what was waiting for her out there. If he had sent someone to take her once, he could send someone again. She had known him too long to believe he would just let her go. She should have been on her guard after rejecting him. She should have expected him to pursue her with the same aggressive intent as he had the time she had fallen in love with him.

 

Before he had crushed her.

 

The man’s gaze bore into her, commanding her to open her eyes and look at him, to find the strength to say those words with more conviction so he would let her leave.

 

She had to protect him.

 

He didn’t know what he had become involved in by helping her and she didn’t want him to pay for his kindness.

 

Not as she had paid for hers so many times and in so many ways.

 

“I want to leave,” Nina bit out the words, putting force into them this time.

 

It had zero effect on the man.

 

“I am not sure whether the one who brought you here is gone and it is dangerous for you to be out there right now. Once we are certain that it is safe for you, you will be returned to London.” He sighed, the soft sound conveying a wealth of irritation. “It might help if you would tell me why someone wished to kidnap you.”

 

Nina froze. Would. Not could. He was on to her. Somehow, he was aware that she knew why the man had grabbed her and what he had intended to do with her. The little voice said to tell him, but she bit down on her tongue to stop the words from leaving her lips. The less he knew, the better. She was keeping him safe by keeping things secret from him.

 

“I don’t know why someone would want to do such a thing to me. I’m just an office clerk. I’m not important in any way and I don’t have any enemies.” Nina tipped her chin up and looked across the room at him.

 

His expression darkened, his irises turning a full shade richer, more amber than gold, as his lips flattened and his features hardened. He didn’t believe her. Her heart beat a little quicker as she held his gaze, her hands shaking where they gripped the wall beside her hips.

 

“What happened?” she whispered, a trickle of fear running through her veins as he stared at her, suddenly looking like the sort of man that it wasn’t wise to lie to or cross in any fashion.

 

Gone was the handsome and charming man who could win any woman with nothing more than a brief smile. In his place was one who looked more demon than angel. A devil made flesh and blood. A man who spoke to her on a visceral level, calling to her primal instincts.

 

A warrior who was the embodiment of masculinity.

 

One who answered her question with nothing more than a narrowing of his striking eyes.

 

“You made the man leave… you didn’t just find me,” she whispered breathlessly, suddenly aware that she was alone with him. The gap between them seemed to shrink and the air in the room felt too thin. Her head turned, her heart labouring as she fought the onslaught of sensation and emotion. “You drove him away so you could bring me to safety.”

 

He dipped his head, a slow and steady movement that didn’t seem adequate to acknowledge the magnitude of what he had done. Most of the men she knew would have beaten their chests while grinning at her, their male pride on show for all to see.

 

He would have acted in such a way.

 

But not this man.

 

This man was different.

 

He barely acknowledged what he had done, even though it was worthy of praise and gratitude.

 

“Thank you,” she said and he turned away from her, fixing his gaze on a door far to the left of the room.

 

“I will find you something to wear and will see to it that you are given some water and something to eat. Perhaps it will make you feel better.” He strode across the room and was gone before she could respond.

 

Air rushed back into her lungs and into the room.

 

It seemed larger without him in it and she couldn’t stop herself from wandering around the luxurious yet gothic and grim room as her panic and fear began to subside. Her fingers danced over polished black wooden side tables, the soft velvet of the chaise longue and the couch that stood facing it across an ebony coffee table. She caressed the cool marble of the black fireplace, lingering a moment to press her hot cheeks to it and savouring the cold before the stone warmed.

 

Her eyes drifted back to the black door the man had exited through. He hadn’t been the one she recalled, that one had long hair, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t involved. She had to keep her distance from him, no matter how fiercely she felt drawn to him.

 

She jumped as the door opened again and the man entered, carrying a silver tray on one upturned palm. The ease he did it with stirred her suspicion that he was a butler, a servant in this house, together with his practiced smile and the way he spoke to her.

 

“Did you ask someone to take me home?” Nina eyed him as he set the tray down on the coffee table and poured her a tall glass of icy water from a pitcher. “Can you get me out of here and take me home?”

 

He paused and looked up at her through long black lashes. “I cannot do that. I cannot leave this place.”

 

A brief flicker of something suspiciously like sorrow crossed his handsome face before he forced a smile, set the glass jug down and straightened. He smoothed his jacket down over his trousers in a manner that only strengthened her belief that he was a servant. It had to be the reason he couldn’t help her leave, and couldn’t leave himself.

 

“How long have you been here?” Nina eyed the water, her parched throat and aching head screaming at her to gulp it down. It might be poisoned. Laced with a drug that would knock her out again.

 

The man sighed, poured a second glass of water, and lifted it to his lips. He took a mouthful from it and nodded towards the other glass, a clear gesture for her to do the same now that he had shown her that it wasn’t poisoned. Nina shook her head.

 

The water might not contain the drug. It might lace the glass.

 

He offered his glass to her with a smile, one that held a little more warmth this time, humour that seemed sad to her somehow. “I would not trust me either.”

 

Nina took the glass from him, her fingers brushing his as she wrapped them around the icy tumbler. Heat shot up her arm and she almost dropped the glass when he snatched his hand away. Had he felt it too?

 

She couldn’t bring herself to look at him as he paced away from her. She stared at the tumbler, at the spot on the other side where his lips had pressed, leaving an imprint on the polished glass. Her stomach heated. Flipped. She crushed the ridiculous urge to turn the glass around and press her lips there too and drank a mouthful from it instead. The cool water was bliss as it ran over her tongue and down her throat, instantly soothing her. Heaven.

 

“How long have I been here?” His rich voice swirled around her as she took another few sips and she felt his eyes on her again, burning her with their intensity and stirring the heat in her veins.

 

Nina slowly lifted her gaze back to his face and paused with the glass at her lips, the ripple of heat in her veins becoming a flood of wildfire as she found him staring at her mouth. The dark abysses of his pupils devoured the gold of his irises before he pulled his eyes away from her lips and raised them to lock with hers.

 

“I have been here a very long time.”

 

She stared at him as those words sank in. He didn’t look much older than she was, maybe just a couple of years closer to forty. Had he been working here his entire life?

 

Had he grown up in this grim place?

 

It would explain the edge he had about him at times, the dark and cold side of him that made her nervous.

 

That made her feel he had secrets locked deep in his heart.

 

Secrets as painful as the ones in hers.

Lucifer is the ruler of Hell, and he is ruthless. When one of his adversaries leaves an unconscious mortal in his courtyard he is sure she is being used to bait him, but there is something about her that reaches to him in a way no woman ever has. Despite his distrust something about her makes him want to keep her by his side no matter what the implications.

Who ever thought the devil could be so damn sexy? I loved the way Heaton portrayed Lucifer. He is the king in Hell; he is hard and often merciless. Yet, after he meets Nina that exterior begins to melt away and Heaton delves into the core of who he really is. Nina has her share of darkness in her soul. She has endured so much pain and hurt in her life, only to then be used as a pawn in a battle between realms. Lucifer and Nina are like kindred spirits who just fit together. I could not get enough of them!

I have enjoyed the Her Angel Romance Series, but of the group Her Sinful Angel is my favorite. This book is aptly named, because Lucifer is sinful in more ways than one. Heaton once again delivers with a book that is sexy, romantic, and exciting. Her vision of the realms of Hell becomes the reader’s through her descriptive writing. I am more than pleased Heaton decided to take on the devil in this sinfully delicious read.

Midnight Cocktail is the first book in the Blood Lust series, a vampire erotica series.   It follows the life of Lana, who is a first generation vampire.

Lana has a very strong personality. She is gorgeous, sarcastic, and a total bad ass. She is the type to do anything she wants just because she wants to. Her character is definitely one who is out for her own pleasure, and to hell with anyone who gets in the way. Her companion’s name is Cherry, a newly turned virgin vampire. In many ways Cherry is the one thing Lana puts above herself.

The first half of the book was pretty much the developing relationship between Lana and Cherry, with a lot of sex.  The second part of the book was more exciting than the first in my opinion.  We as readers get to see Lana in action, we see the lengths she will go to protect those she cares about. We also get a good look at her more devious side. Tapper gives an interesting and different insight to the makeup of the vampire, and I enjoyed seeing something new. It took some time to see where the story was going, but once it really got on point I didn’t want to put it down.

Tapper leaves the end of the first book in a way that the second story can pick up where it left off. This was an erotic read with a pulp fiction feel to it. It may not be for every reader, but I would give the second book a shot.

Smart. Sexy. Rich. Homicidal. What’s not to like?

 

Lana falls so hard for Cherry, it’s as if she had never been in love before. From their very first date, they can’t keep their hands off each other.

 

But Lana is not the good girl her parents hoped for; she’s something else entirely: a remorseless 450 year-old killing machine in a hot 21 year-old body.
And when the bullets start to fly, Lana will do whatever it takes to protect the girl she loves.


Janna Lawson is in search of Jonah McCall, the man her late mother loved and died for. When she walks into the town of Beattyville she runs up against alpha wolf Garrett Foster, and the little half she wolf has no idea what she’s up against.

Janna’s character is resourceful, determined, and spunky. This young woman oozes attitude, and if she expects to stand up to Garrett she will need it in spades. Garrett is all alpha male, as the leader of his pack; he exudes power and demands respect. His protective and possessive nature is sexy as hell and I couldn’t get enough of him. Aside from the two main characters there are others the reader will be excited to learn more about!

I am a huge fan of Gabelman’s Protectors series, where the alphas are vampire warriors.  I was beside myself when I learned she was writing a series about wolves, because I do love a sexy shifter. Forbidden Hunger was everything I expected from one of Gabelman’s books. Her blend of action, humor, and outright sexiness always leaves me wanting more.  Forbidden Hunger is a fast paced read you won’t want to put down!  I am already anticipating the next book.

A shifter without a pack, Janna Lawson goes in search of the man who her mother died trying to protect. What she finds is Garrett Foster; a man who has the power to decide her fate and causes a hunger inside her that is forbidden to them both.


Primal Instinct is an excellent debut to the Pendragon Gargoyles Series by Sydney Somers.  The first chapter was probably one of the best opening chapters I’ve ever read.  It was tight.  You could tell the author had tweaked it until she had it just right.

Chapter one introduces us to Cori, a woman having a rough time because she thinks she is going crazy.  In the evenings, she goes out on her balcony and confides in her neighbor,  Ryder, a man she has never seen because of the wall between balconies.  Regardless, the two have an intimate and emotional connection.  The dialogue is excellent.

Ryder has an involved and dark past.  He is a wolf gargoyle who turns to stone during the day.  He initially set out to meet Cori as part of his efforts to get revenge against her estranged father.  Cori has many things to discover – some about love, and some about herself and her dad.

When Ryder and Cori have their face-to face meeting, things get real hot real fast and from there we are taken on an action packed adventure.  On the run, Ryder seeks shelter with some of his gargoyle friends.  I quickly became interested in them and am looking forward to meeting them in future books of this series.

The mythology is somewhat convoluted and the ending was a little rushed, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book.   I will definitely continue the Pendragon Gargoyles

My Rating: 4.5 stars

Skye Renault is a famous author with bestselling novels that are being made into movies, but the stories she pens are not completely her own. They are born of nightmares she had as a girl after she had an accident at D’Arc Estate.  Now the dreams have dried up, and she feels bereft losing the connection with her two leading men. She decides to go back to the mansion that still calls to her; the place that where it all began, and It doesn’t take long for to lose herself when everything she thought to be imagination starts to take a very realistic turn.

Skye is a very fascinating character.  She is very talented, and successful. However, her strength and tenacity are her most impressive traits. However, for the most part it seems she doesn’t see these qualities in herself. The vampires she has dreamed of through the years are Christian and Lucien. Christian is patient and gentle while Lucien is darker and passionate.  When they become a part of her reality she must choose between the two vampires that are in love with her, and who she loves in return.

I have been hooked on the Haven’s Realm series since the beginning. Monteau’s  Community of vampires has brought me hours of enjoyment as I witnessed their trials and triumphs. She has a way of bringing this alternate world alive for her readers through her descriptive writing.  Midnight Skye is one of my favorites to date with its strong character presence and overall mystery.

Characters in the past books are prominent in this latest novel as well. I urge readers to start from the beginning, or you will lose out on a lot of history. It is necessary to see what these characters have been through to get to where they are now. I am looking forward to what promises to be an exciting follow up in the seventh novel After Midnight.

Review: Hidden (Alpha Wolf’s Pet #1)

Mia had to leave everything she ever knew behind when she was forced into witness protection. She is taken from the city, across the country and placed in a cottage in a Wolf Woods. Dominic Wolfe is a handsome, wealthy, and very private citizen living in Wolf Woods. He is also an alpha werewolf, and secrecy is utmost important to ensure the survival of his kind. When he meets Mia, the beautiful human woman he finds himself changing all the rules.

Mia and Dominic have an interesting relationship. It is almost like a tug of war in the beginning. The passion is there but Mia teeters back and forth because of Dominic’s dominant personality. She suspects that he is a Dom in the BDSM scene, and she also has an inner struggle about whether or not she could be in that kind of lifestyle.

I love shifters, so I was excited to get my hands on Hidden. I really liked the premise, and thought that Gordon came up with a storyline that was quite unique. I look forward to reading the second book in the series titled Kept.

~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

Mia’s testimony against Russian mobsters forced her to enter the witness protection program. She is relocated to a quaint cottage in Wolf Woods, near Mt. Rainier, far from everyone and everything she loved and cared for. All is calm, until she meets Dominic, the gorgeous ruggedly handsome owner of the mysterious Wolfe Estate. He is all alpha male, domineering, and controlling. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a sexy control freak.

Alpha werewolf, Dominic Wolfe, is the packs’ enforcer. When an attractive young woman moves into a cottage near his territory; his senses are heightened to obsessive proportions. A human pet to meet his desires.

Dominic is determined to unveil Mia’s real identity while keeping his own securely hidden. Haunted by the howls and shrieks coming from Dominic’s estate, Mia wonders if she can really trust the enigmatic man she suspects of wanting a dominant-submissive relationship. A man who brings out her darker desires. Will hidden danger keep them from gratifying their burning passion?

Review: Kept (Alpha Wolf’s Pet #2)

Kept is a continuation of Mia and Dominic’s story that began in Hidden.
Dominic is not allowed to mate a human, but something in Mia calls to him. He has a need to protect her, but he wants her as his. To be with Dominic, Mia becomes his human pet, and signs a contract that swears her to secrecy about the werewolves.

Mia is still in danger. The Russian Mob has not given up their hunt. She is also having trouble finding her place within the pack, and dealing with pack politics. The high regard at which Dominic holds his pet seems to have loyalty to his pack questioned at times.

The relationship between Dominic and Mia doesn’t come easy, and that friction definitely keeps things interesting. There are times when Dominic is a bit high handed and Mia is a kind of a brat, but they always seem to get on the same page when it matters most. Gordon really kicks up the intensity in this second book.

~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

In the sequel to Alpha Wolf’s Pet, Hidden, Mia has two choices: remain hidden, frightened by the Russian mob determined to murder her, or become a sworn member and under the protection of Dominic’s werewolf pack. Being Dominic’s human lover is pleasurable while taxing. She wants more than he can give: commitment. Except werewolves never marry humans. Carnal desires aside, will she accept her low status within the pack in order to share what little time she has with Dominic until he takes a werewolf mate?
Dominic is torn. If he gives Mia beta status, his pack will mutiny. If he doesn’t, she’ll leave. Her stubborn independent nature will turn his world of strict pack rules upside down and he’ll be scorned as pack enforcer. He loves her, but his pack rules will never allow him to claim a human as his mate. Worse, he’s drawn to Mia’s addictive blood. Was one taste too much?

Despite breaking the witness protection rules and looming danger, Mia is determined to visit her ailing grandmother. Can Dominic protect her from the mob, as well as from his kind? As their passion reaches a fevered pitch, will circumstances crush their happiness?

 


Review: Hunted (Alpha Wolf’s Pet #3)

Hunted is the last book in the Alpha Wolf’s Pet Trilogy. Mia and Dominic find themselves in more than one sticky situation. Mia learns more about who she is, and her situation seems to be without a happy ending in sight. Tensions mount as Dominic pursues the Russian Mob, while his pack voices their concerns over Dominic’s possible addiction to Mia’s blood.

I must admit Gordon gave the reader a fast paced read with twists and turns that will have your head spinning. What happens between Dominic and Mia will keep you guessing right up to the end. Oddly though, it wasn’t the couple that held my attention. I was really grabbed by the supporting characters! Lev the mutated werewolf was absolutely fascinating. I am hoping that Gordon gives him a future story. In my opinion, Cricket, the omega wolf that became a close friend to Mia totally stole the show! Despite her low rank, she is a strong wolf who has perseverance. I really respected her character. When I found out she would be getting a book of her own I was thrilled, and ready for Gordon to take me on the next journey.

~~~~~~

(amazon.com)
In the sequel to Book 2, Alpha Wolf’s Pet, Kept, the trilogy concludes with Alpha Wolf’s Pet, Hunted.

Living with werewolves is a lesson in Mia’s fragility, and stretching the limits of their antiquated pack protocol wears on everybody’s nerves. Nonetheless, Mia is an official member of their pack, and Dominic’s lover. Satisfied with their romantic and sexy exclusive arrangement, Mia is devastated when Chandra, Dominic’s fiancée, arrives during his absence.

Dominic is worried. Is his love for Mia really his addiction to her blood? Will she eventually become his blood mistress and belong to her, commanding his body and soul? Before he can resolve the issue, the Russian Chess Piece mob strikes his territory. Faced with the king’s command to mate his werewolf fiancée, and the mob, he has no time to explain before Mia does what she does best. She runs.

Danger looms for Mia and all werewolf kind as secrets are revealed about the mob pursuing her. But most disturbing of all, is the Lycan Intelligence Agency’s sudden interest in Mia’s DNA. Will new revelations destroy their love and crush their future?


Arawn is the fierce leader of the Lash demons. He is meticulous when it comes to planning for battle, and he looks out for his warriors. He has suffered great loss, and he has no room in his life for love. Ria is a seasoned warrior.  She is tough as well as beautiful. If she cares to admit it she has been attracted to Arawn for decades, but harbored secrets could get in the way of any chance she may have to soften the warrior’s heart.

Kudos Sharon Kay! I was a bit broken hearted after the ending of Kay’s Solsti Prophecy series. There was a house full of warriors I wanted to meet. As you can imagine I was jumping for joy when I learned of the Watcher’s Kiss Series, and the first book would feature the mysterious leader of the Lash demons.

Arawn was everything I expected and more. He is every bit of the driven warrior I knew he was, but I loved getting up close and personal. Ria is just incredible.  She is a fearless warrior, but she never loses her feminine side. Her strength makes her a great fit for the demon that has so much resting on his shoulders.

Tainted Kiss was such a fun read for me. It was fast paced with plenty of drama and action to keep me glued to the story.  If that isn’t enough for you Arawn and Ria burn up the pages! I always enjoy Kay’s writing. She is descriptive, but at the same time she keeps the story moving. Her characters are fascinating, and you can’t help but getting hooked on them.

It isn’t necessary to have read the Solsti Prophecy books before reading Tainted Kiss, but I highly recommend it to get the most out of the story. Fans of the first series will be in for a treat when they get reacquainted with some familiar faces. If that isn’t enough for you Arawn and Ria burn up the pages! Make sure you have free time when you sit down with this one, because you won’t want to lay it down.

Tactical, lethal, resolute.

Haunted by a centuries-old tragedy, there’s no room in Arawn’s life for softness. Every action he takes is for the betterment of his race and the good of the realm. He leads his elite band of warriors the same way he lives his life: full on, without compromise, determined. Except for one sexy female who happens to be his subordinate.

 

Tenacious, passionate, tough-as-steel.

Ria relishes the duties Arawn assigns her as much as she respects the deadly combatants on her team. And she has a secret: her formidable boss is also her deepest fantasy. Years of working under his authority haven’t dulled the spark she feels, yet her passion is tempered by the hints of loss she gathers about him. His dark and sexy moodiness draws her, but he’s a hard man to approach as he keeps the world at emotional arm’s length.

 

Secrets laced in blood burn his battle-hardened soul.

When Ria is gravely injured in the line of duty, Arawn can no longer fight his own long-simmering feelings. But a secret, more heinous and ugly than anyone could imagine, prevents him from surrendering his heart. Despite his intentions, he and Ria forge a connection both fiery and unexpectedly tender. Yet every day brings them closer to shocking facts. Evil stirs in his blood, and hiding the truth from her will be the ultimate betrayal.
