A new series I came across that was cute and addicting to read. Enjoy running through the streets with a baby gargoyle!

Read an excerpt.

But when a panicked baby gargoyle bursts into her studio, insisting Mika is the only person she’ll trust with her desperate mission, Mika’s carefully constructed five-year plan is shattered.

Swept into the gritty criminal underworld of Terra Haven, Mika must jeopardize everything she’s worked so hard for to save the baby gargoyle from the machinations of a monster—and to stay alive…

Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken

Leave a comment

Dragon Actually is the first book in the series Dragon Kin by G.A. Aiken. I absolutely love this series. The dragons are great and their mates are dangerously hilarious. I will say among all the characters in the books, Annwyl the Bloody is my favorite. Tell me who you’re favorites are once you get through all the books. It’s hard to read just one.

Animated image with covers from both DRAGON ACTUALLY and A Tale of Two Dragons

Book 1 in the Dragon Kin series

now including A Tale of Two Dragons

 

With a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody, men tend to either cower in fear at the sight of me, or salute. So it would be nice to find a man I can actually talk to, just the way I can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer. Then again, Fearghus is a dragon…

Find out for yourself why All Things Urban Fantasy calls the Dragon Kin series, “As bawdy, crass, and hilarious as anything I could have hoped for!” and read the prequel novella, “A Tale of Two Dragons,” to see where the insanity began!

Happy Reading!

Federal Protection Unit

Get Wolf Protector, Dangerous Protector and Unwanted Protector in this great bundle. Alphas with a protective streak a mile and the women who put up with them.
I had actually read the first two books a while ago and then she just came out with the third one in April. Of course, I had to reread the first two books so I could read the third book. I went ahead and bought the bundle so that I can read them all at once.

Wolf Protector

A woman with a secret…

The Federal Paranormal Unit is an elite squad of supernaturals dedicated to solving missing persons cases. Erica’s gift allows her a special connection with the crime, but it comes at a deep personal cost… Until now, she’s kept her gift a secret, even from the other members of the team. But this case will throw her together with Agent Trent Buchanan. He’s the object of her secret desires, but he’s also a cocky womanizer. She’d rather swim in shark-infested waters with a paper cut than admit she has feelings for him.
A man with one desire…

Wolf Shifter Trent wants Erica more than he’s ever wanted any woman. He’s spent years patiently waiting for her to admit that she wants him too. Working one-on-one in a race to find a serial killer, Trent’s patience and Erica’s resolve wear thin. When Trent discovers the truth about Erica, will he accept her for who she is? And can he protect her from the horrors that her gift brings?
A case that pushes them to the edge…

Erica will have to risk it all if she wants to stop the killer, and when she does, Trent may have to put his own life on the line to make sure his mate is protected…
Dangerous Protector

If you run from love, you’re asking for a chase…
James Brock lived the past ten years without the woman he loves. Using his job as head of the Federal Paranormal Unit to help others, he’s done a good job of ignoring his lack of a personal life until she returns. His salvation. His first love.
Cynthia Vega had a very good reason to leave the only man she loved after she’d accepted his marriage proposal. Now she’s back as his boss. And he’s not willing to ignore their chemistry or the past.
Brock is determined to claim his mate and prove that their passion is even hotter than before. He wants her and her explanation behind their separation. Except, some secrets won’t stay buried in the past. Brock will fight his demons to follow her lead, but Cynthia’s reluctance to explain their lost love may be the one key to their destruction…
Unwanted Protector

Jane Donovan has been living a lie. Every day for the past ten years, she’s run from reality and the temptation that Tony Ramirez represents. But this year, Jane’s getaway is filled with more than just relaxation; there’s a dead man on her kitchen floor. Suddenly, keeping Tony away is the last thing Jane can do.
Tony Ramirez has wanted Jane for ten years. While she may not be his mate, the attraction is undeniable. When he can’t shake the feeling he needs to check on her, he decides to crash her vacation to ensure her safety. When he gets to her cabin, Jane is gone and nobody knows where she could be.
Finding out who the dead man is may be the least of their troubles when a pint-sized, pink-haired little girl who needs help suddenly makes an appearance. Unfortunately for Jane, the trouble with a small lie is that it grows with time. The truth may come to light before she’s ready. Now they have a murder, a child, a mystery, and the unwavering attraction to deal with.
Reader Note: These books are a work of fiction. There’s hot, sweaty, naughty sex, adult language, lots of violence and blood. Heroines with a sassy attitude and growly Alpha males that will claim their mates at any cost. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you’re a fan of all things naughty, se!xual tension, action and humor, this is perfect for you. Enjoy!

Paying it Forward

Leave a comment

I’m going to step away from the books for a day and talk a bit about life. Nothing horrendous happened, as a matter of fact something quite nice.

My daughter has swim school every Tuesday afternoon. My daughter wanted to a KitKat bar after class and I was going to buy it for her. Normally she would have bought it herself, but she left her wallet in the car. My daughter is 13 and earns her allowance by doing chores around the house. Most times she has more money than I do.

I was reaching for my wallet. It wasn’t there. I had left it on my desk. Now, since my wallet has my driver’s license, I am nervous about driving home. It’s not like I speed, but the one time I don’t have my license with me would be the one time I get pulled over for something, anything.

Back to the candy bar.  I tell my daughter that I don’t have my wallet. So, like a girl on a chocolate mission she went to the car to get her wallet. In the meantime, the front desk clerk lets me know that I can charge it to the credit card on file. Of course I could charge it to the card, but that would throw my husband off on doing the finances. I am not about to do that to him. I never use the card if I don’t have to. Plus my daughter has her own money.

The mother of the boy in my daughter’s class said that she would buy it for her. I told her she didn’t have to do that because she was getting her money. She said she didn’t mind because someone had paid something for her earlier in the day. She felt she was paying it forward by doing this. Even though the KitKat was only $1.00, it was the gesture that I appreciated. I thanked her and so did my daughter when she came back with her wallet.

After retrieving my wallet from home we went to Safeway with the Starbucks inside. I bought my usual coffee and my daughter of course bought her pastries. I was the last person in line. We were sitting there waiting for our order when an Air Force Officer came in. I waited to see if she would be buying a for a lot of people or just herself. I didn’t have a lot of money and I just used up my gift card. Luckily she was buying for herself. I let the cashier know that I would be paying for her order. She thanked me and I thanked her for her service.

There is hope out there for people. There is kindness in all the chaos that others bring. Believe in that kindness and that others can and will do good.

By the way, I did not get pulled over. Thank goodness!

Apocalyptic Collaboration

Leave a comment

I finished reading the second book in a new apocalyptic series the other day, A Shrouded World: Atlantis. It’s a collaboration between Mark Tufo, author of the Zombie Fallout series and John O’Brien, the author of the New World Series. They bring the world of two different monsters to life. I am including the first book of the series below. Read it, enjoy it and be afraid.

ASW FB Optimized

Jack Walker and Michael Talbot come from two worlds; the same, yet different. They both find themselves transported into an alien one, where things aren’t as they seem. While it appears similar to the ones they come from, there are some terrifying differences. Is it a dream? Or has reality been somehow warped?

Jack comes from a world filled with nocturnal creatures that were once human, but now seek to destroy the last vestiges of humanity. Mike, living under a constant threat from hordes of the undead, arrives with a companion, John the Tripper. Ripped away from their family members and thrown into the unknown, they find that the nightmares from their worlds have preceded them. Survival becomes moment to moment as they encounter old dangers, and new.

Each wants nothing more than to be reunited with their loved ones. With dangers lurking around every corner, they seek to unravel the mystery that brought them. It may be a long road ahead, but they begin by taking the first step, hoping the next one will be the one that takes them home.

Happy Reading!

New Worlds

Leave a comment

It’s been almost two weeks since my last book recommendation. The family had the Phoenix Comicon coming up and we were busy getting ready. It was four days of walking and seeing a lot of people in cosplay. Don’t forget the party for the adults! Great fun was had by all. And now onto the next book recommendation.

First World (A Walker Saga Book 1)

Obviously by the title this is the first book, and there are seven of them. It’s fun to watch the Abigail grow and meet new characters along the way. My favorite character is Josian and you will see why on first meeting.

Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.

In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t. Tears don’t change a damn thing.

Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To First World; a land of unimagined beauty.

Abigail and Lucy find themselves thrust from New York and into another world. Day one: traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected savior arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow – kiss him or punch him in the mouth – Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.

And what a family. Enter Josian, her father, larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cozy reunion, since her return to First World is the unknown catalyst, setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for all worlds.
