Rogue’s Paradise is the third book in the amazing Covenant of Thorns series by Jeffe Kennedy. This book culminates everything we’ve wanted to know, and see happens from the last two books. Rogue and Gwynn are together, although somewhat reluctantly on Gwynn’s part. They have to find a way to take care of Tatianna for good. In my opinion, the way their relationship grows, and the emotional up and downs play the biggest role. With enough sexy scenes to leave you breathless we get much more than we had in the last two books. Let me tell you, the wait was well worth it! I absolutely fell in love with Rogue in this book. Yes, he’s always been sexy, but we get to see an almost romantic and loving side to this dominant and demanding Lord. Gwynn was, as always, a very entertaining character to read. I love the way she brings familiar “human things” into the conversations and her thoughts in Faerie. Even when they are dealing with flying monkeys, and yes, there are flying monkeys, Gwynn and Rogue’s shared thoughts are at times humorous because of Rogue’s misunderstanding of Gwynn’s human perspective.

There are enough secondary characters to fill another book, and Jeffe Kennedy’s spectacular descriptive writing creates such a vivid visual landscape, I could not help but get pulled into the world of Faerie. I’ve been a longtime fan of Jeffe Kennedy so I wasn’t surprised at the depth of the characters or the imagery she created in this series, but I am completely blown away by Rogue’s Paradise! If you enjoy any type of Fae or Fantasy story, you have to pick up Covenant of Thorns! You do have to read the first two before you read this one, but you’ll fly through them and won’t be disappointed when you finish. Rogue’s Paradise is a 5 star Must Read!!

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

Book three of Covenant of Thorns

Pregnant, possessed, and in love with a man I don’t dare to trust—those are the consequences of the risks I took to save my life. But Faerie, the land of blood and magic, is filled with bitter ironies, and the bargains I made now threaten me and my unborn child.

The darkly sensual fae noble Rogue still tempts me to danger and desire. As we await the birth of our child, I’ve been forced to question whether our offspring is part of a bargain Rogue once made to save himself. He can’t tell me the truth due to a spell the vicious Queen Titania has him under. Would he betray our family against his will? Could I ever forgive him if he does?

Rogue insists on an eternal commitment from me, even as Titania’s forces close in on us. I don’t know if Rogue and I can withstand her onslaught, or that of the beast within me. But I will not stop looking for answers—even if it brings the walls of Faerie crashing down.

Description

Killing vampires is easy. Trusting one will be the hardest thing Dahlia Sabin has ever done.

 

Dahlia has lived a lonely existence as a killer of the undead. Known as The Blushing Death to those that fear her, Dahlia uncovers a plot by Columbus’s Master Vampire, Ethan. He intends to raise a demon from the depths of hell to destroy the city, cement his power, and take control.

 

In her pursuit to stop a demon from manifesting, Dahlia sinks deeper into the city’s supernatural underworld and discovers that vampires are not only deadly; one in particular could be dangerous to her very soul and her heart. Patrick, the Master vampire’s second-in-command with dark penetrating eyes and a cool, deadly sophistication, can’t stay away and Dahlia can’t tell him no. There’s something that neither of them knows, Ethan wants Dahlia’s unleashed power for himself and is willing to do anything to get it.

 

Dahlia is in a race against time to send the demon back to hell, at war with her better judgment, trusting a dark and intriguing vampire with his own agenda, while struggling to save her own neck. As the portal to hell opens, Dahlia has only herself to rely on in order to survive, if she can  . . .

Dahlia Sabin hunts vampires. Her existence seems to consist of only pain and death. She finds vampires not only dangerous, but revolting. A chance meeting with a vampire named Patrick has her feeling things she shouldn’t and doesn’t want to feel, and now her survival may depend on her trusting the alluring vampire.

Dahlia makes for a very interesting heroine. First off, it is apparent there is something very special about her. Most humans don’t know vampires exist, and yet she has the ability to feel them. Secondly, she kicks ass! There is ruthlessness about her when she is in battle that makes for some really exciting reading. It is obvious she has suffered a lot in her life, and her loneliness is palpable. When she finds herself attracted to Patrick, she feels a mixture of confusion and disgust. Patrick is equally confused, what vampire in his right mind would want anything to do with the Blushing Death?

 

.Pool of Crimson was a fun read for me, as Sabol’s writing is very witty. I was impressed with the character development as well. The reader learns a lot about Dahlia, but I have the distinct feeling that more of her past will come to light. Sabol certainly held my attention throughout the novel with her action filled scenes and forbidden attraction. Pool of Crimson is dark and gritty, and I found it enthralling.

 

If you are a fan of the great Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita blake I think you will enjoy Sabol’s stories.  Midnight Ash is the second book in the Blushing Death Novels, and I am interested to see what happens to our feisty heroine next!

Nevar is a servant of Hell. Considering he was once an angel of the heavens, his new station is a bitter pill to swallow. Because of addiction and the need for revenge he has committed heinous acts. Now the darkness consumes him; he sees no good in himself and doesn’t feel he deserves any kind of redemption. The moment he meets Lysia in a demon bar she reaches something inside him. He soon realizes he wants to protect the beautiful woman who is seemingly made for him.

Nevar is a fascinating character. He is proof that there is no solid line between light and dark, and this line can blur. The torment in his soul and his self-loathing will bring you to your knees. He brings about a feeling of urgency, because it becomes imperative that this tortured soul find some kind of happiness. Lysia sees the light in him right away, and she admires the brooding warrior. The great thing about Lysia is the fact there is nothing ordinary about her.

Heaton brings her readers the passion and excitement we have come to expect from her work. One moment you are reading a scene filled with mind numbing passion, and then you are hurled into violent battles that leave you on the edge of your seat. You will definitely want to pick up the other books in the series before reading Her Avenging Angel. It is important to know the other characters in play as well as Nevar’s past.

 

I have been a fan of Felicity Heaton since I read her V.E.T series. I would recommend her to any paranormal romance fan as a must read author. I am always excited to see what she will put out next because she always delivers!

New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Paranormal Romance Author Felicity Heaton presents:

 

Her Avenging Angel (Her Angel Romance Series Book 7)

Once a proud angel of Heaven, Nevar is now a servant of Hell, bound to a new master—the King of Demons. Consumed by darkness and driven to seek revenge, he set in motion a series of events that awakened the Great Destroyer, a force that will bring about the apocalypse. Now, he is the creature’s master and the fate of our world rests in the hands of an angel with only darkness in his heart.

 

Lost in the mortal realm without any recollection of how she came to be there, Lysia is only aware that she has survived a great battle. When she stumbles into a demon bar, she finds more than a chance to discover what happened to her—she finds a dark and deadly angel warrior who stirs fire in her veins and awakens soul-searing passion she cannot deny.

 

With the mounting threat of the Great Destroyer, the forces of Heaven and Hell against him, and a band of dangerous angels intent on capturing Lysia on his heels, can Nevar protect the beautiful woman who is light to his darkness and find the strength to save the world?

rogueVampireRomanceBooks.com is pleased to welcome Jeffe Kennedy back!  She is our guest blogger today and we will be learning more about her release of Rogue’s Paradise,the third book in the Covenant of Thorns series. So without further ado I present Jeffe Kennedy!

 

 

Guest Blog:

I love that the Vampire Romance Books blog has for their tagline “sensual and humorous romantic reads you can sink your teeth into.” Because that pretty much describes my books right there. Not that I really plan them that way, that’s just what comes out—the snarky and the smexy.

It’s been really fun to have Rogue’s Paradise, the third book in my Covenant of Thorns trilogy, hit the virtual shelves, because so many people have been talking to me about it. Quite a lot of readers have waited for all three books to come out to read the series. I don’t blame them. We’ve all gotten burned with series where the author, for one reason or another, never quite finished the story arc.

Funny, though, to have people coming out of the woodwork saying they love these books. More than a few have said they refer to them as “the fairy books”—something that warms my heart more than you can imagine.

Because they ARE my fairy books. Full of the fae the way I always wanted to write them. Whimsical, cruel, vivid, earthy, magical and completely alien.

And also more than a little sensual and humorous. Hope you enjoy!

bewitching


Garnet has been a slave at Stroehm for well over a century. Her only happiness in her dark and twisted world is
her son Dash. She made friends when she helped a Solsti and her mate escape, but she never dreamed that she would experience the freedom she helped them achieve.  When Draven, the ruler of Stroehm, is killed Brooke and Kai make good on their promise to free her and her son.  She decides to settle in the place where she was raised. It is there she meets a Deserati demon named Aden. There is an attraction at first sight, but you have to wonder if the secrets they harbor will finish them before they have a chance to begin.

Since meeting Garnet in the Solsti Prophecy Trilogy my heart bled for her. She was a beautiful soul in a horrific situation.  You cannot help but want this kind woman and her little boy to find happiness. Aden is such a big strong demon. He is a warrior for his clan, so it is obvious he is lethal. Aden is also very caring and gentle, and that side of him is even more apparent with his interactions with Garnet and Dash.

Like I said in my reviews of the Solsti Prophecy books, I felt bereft when the trilogy reached the end. So when this novella fell into my hands I was giddy. Sharon Kay once again delivers everything I could have hoped for and more. The gripping storyline is branded onto your brain from the very first page, and to stop reading is not an option! It is my hope that Kay finds a way to continue giving readers more of this wondrous realm she has created.

Although Kissed by a Demon Spy is a companion to the Trilogy it stands very well on its own. If you have not had a chance to read the Solsti Prophecy books I suggest that you don’t put it off any longer!

“““““““““““`

Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.

Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.

Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.

Please welcome Sky Purington to VampireRomanceBooks.com. She is our guest blogger today and is here to fothpromote the fourth book of The MacLomain Series titled Faith of the Highlander.

Thanks so much for featuring Faith of the Highlander. As the fourth novel in the ongoing MacLomain Series: Next Generation, this particular tale was a unique one to write. Why? Well, it was the first time I tackled not only a hero but heroine who had long suffered mental abuse. Grant at the hands of his master and chieftain, Keir Hamilton and modern day, Sheila, via her ex-boyfriend.

While Sheila has been a constant secondary character through the series, we first meet Grant in book two, Vow of the Highlander but only briefly. Then he again comes on scene near the end of the third book, Wrath of the Highlander. That’s when we learn there’s more to him than meets the eye.

So as I dug into Faith of the Highlander, I already had a good idea of what to expect from my characters. Though both had suffered abuse, they were not weakened but strengthened by their pasts. Grant, more powerful in magic than most and trained to be a warrior from a young age, would have an alpha personality with an unexpected compassionate side. Sheila, though more submissive due to a repressed past, would gain confidence as she once more recognized her self-worth.

Even though I thought I’d figured out the character development between Grant and Sheila, they still managed to surprise me. While Grant certainly had bitterness towards many, he was far more capable of forgiveness than I ever could have hoped. I think it was through that forgiveness that he was better able to stay focused on all he strove to accomplish. And his goals were many. He needed to save Torra and through her his clan, free those enslaved by Keir and try to reforge the bonds lost with his MacLomain kin. As it turned out, his goals were shared by Sheila. Together as they worked toward a similar outcome, they were thrust into a position in which they helped one another heal.

I have to admit that despite seventeen previous publications, Grant and Sheila are amongst my favorite couples. Theirs was an emotional journey that I won’t soon forget. As such, both earned a strong secondary role in the final book in The Next Generation, Plight of the Highlander.

Excerpt:

Sheila started to tremble when he broke free from the last of whatever or whoever had imprisoned him. A shiver raced through her and she knew.

Grant had just broken free from Keir Hamilton’s mental hold over him.

He tore off his tunic and whipped it aside. With nothing but the Hamilton’s plaid hung low on his waist, he was an impressive sight. Legs braced, arms by his side, fists clenched, he closed his eyes. Cast in the soft, flickering glow of a single sputtering torch, sweat slicked muscles rippled down his long warrior’s body. Was he praying? Long moments passed. Every one of them a lifetime as her heart thundered. Then, as if replacing one swift divine moment with another, his eyes snapped open and met hers.

It felt like a freight train hit her.

“Och, my wee geal,” he whispered.

Wee what?

Sheila made to speak but the words died on her lips when in two swift strides, he pulled her into his arms. The word ‘wee’ seemed a massive understatement when up against him. Though she was fairly tall at five foot seven, he had to be a foot taller. Lord, she felt tiny! What had been but a tremble became a harsh fiery heat that whiplashed through her body. Emotional state and sensory awareness in overdrive, she put her hands against his hard chest.

“Oh, I shouldn’t have done that,” she murmured. But she didn’t pull her hands away.

No, if anything, she pressed tighter and curled her fingers slightly. It was one thing to meet a man in your mind, another thing entirely to feel him pressed up against your body. When he tilted up her chin, her eyes slid shut. Why, she’d never know. She supposed somewhere deep inside she wasn’t ready to look too closely into his eyes.

But why?

Perhaps she was afraid of what she’d see there. Perhaps though he seemed so strong she’d see years of mental abuse flicker in his gaze. Mental abuse inflicted by Keir being twisted within his mind for so long. The very idea of it made her sick to her stomach.

But none of that mattered when she felt his warm breath whisper over her lips. Close, so very close. She could all but feel his mouth hovering over hers. Time slowed as her lips fell open. Sensation heightened. A slow burn covered her cheeks. An ever so slight throbbing began first on the sides of her neck as emotion welled. Her heart pounded so strongly that her lips pulsed, ready for the pressure, the weight of his mouth against hers.

Three sisters. Motherless daughters of the high king. The eldest is the warrior-woman heir;the middle child is shy and full of witchy intuition;and the youngest, Princess Amelia, she is as beautiful as the sun and just as generous.

 

Ami met her Prince Charming and went away to his castle on the stormy sea-cliffs—and that should have been her happily ever after. Instead, her husband lies dead and a war rages. Her middle sister has been taken into a demon land, turned into a stranger. The priests and her father are revealing secrets and telling lies. And a power is rising in Ami, too, a power she hardly recognizes, to wield her beauty as a weapon, and her charm as a tool to deceive…

 

Amelia has never had to be anything but good and sweet and kind and lovely. But the chess game for the Twelve Kingdoms has swept her up in it, and she must make a gambit of her own. Can the prettiest princess become a pawn—or a queen?

Sanctuary, Texas

by

Krystal Shannan

 

Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.

 

Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.

 

Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.

 

Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?

“Straddle me.”

I gulped. It wasn’t a question and I didn’t hesitate. I twisted my body and lifted my leg over his lap, situating myself across his thighs. I wiggled a little to get comfortable.

He grabbed my hips and pulled me closer, grinding my sex against his hard length. My body throbbed and my panties were soaked in seconds. Taking a deep breath, I focused on slowing my racing heart and trembling body. What I thought would be an uncomfortable bite and awkward aftermath had turned into something completely different.

Fire licked at my belly and I swayed my hips, allowing his hands to guide the movement. Another growl rumbled from his chest. His hands abandoned my waist and slid upward, grazing my breasts and then over my shoulders. He cupped each side of my face and pulled me closer, kissing me slowly. His tongue grazed first my top lip then my bottom, then plunged between them, sweeping inside. It was euphoric. He tasted sweet and I opened further for him.

My gesture did not go unnoticed and I received an encouraging gravelly moan as a reward. He sucked and nipped at my lips again before trailing his kisses slowly across my jaw and down the side of my neck below my ear. His right hand caressed the nape of my neck and grasped the base of the loose braid of my hair. He pulled my head gently to the side, further exposing my neck and collarbone to his hungry mouth.

My heart raced again. The bite had to be coming soon. I leaned into his kisses, pushing my neck closer. Something had changed in my mind. I no longer feared the bite. Instead, I desperately wanted it.
