Review: Duke by Ashley L. Hunt 4 of 5 stars

Duke Duke by Ashley L. Hunt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Duke is an A’li-uud Elder just like his father was. Everything is going well because there is peace in his kingdom and his warriors are well trained and deadly. However when they travel to Earth he finds he cannot kill one human woman called Emily because he is in love with her, even if that means he has to ignore his loathing for humans as well as betray his own troops.

This is a charming story on how love can strike at the most inopportune moments between two people who should be enemies. The story covered how he tried to not feel anything for her, but in the end had to give in. The ending nicely handed over to Duke who is in the next story and I hope there will be space for the rest of the story between Duke and Emily to be told as so much more can and probably will happen when they arrive on Albaterra. So it would have been nice for this book to contain more on that.

Review: When Gargoyles Choose by Ashley C. Harris5 of 5 stars

When Gargoyles Choose When Gargoyles Choose by Ashley C. Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rose is a Gargoyle and was born in 1544, everything changed when the vampires came and brought a curse against her whole race. Now she is trying to hide in plain sight while trying to find a way to lift the curse.

I loved this and the drama and action in this story adds to the build-up of the overall series. I loved the way the interactions between her and the various vampires were written and the way it left some to our imagination to fill in the story. It definitely ended on a cliff-hanger and I now desperately need to read the next story in the series. Well written and all the thoughts and emotions were easy to feel and empathise with.

Review: Grinding Frost by Erin Bedford by J.A. Cipriano 5 of 5 stars

Grinding Frost: A Reverse Harem Dragon Fantasy Grinding Frost: A Reverse Harem Dragon Fantasy by Erin Bedford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maya Rose told everyone she was pregnant to ensure her suitors stayed alive, but this lie could be their undoing. Add to that the way she can add power to the ones she has mated with and the world is becoming a much more dangerous place for them. They travel to Raiden's home to seek refuge with the lightening dragons but his mother knows the truth and her price is very high for her silence - something that horrifies Maya. Can she play the old woman at her own game and what will her mates make of this situation?

Lots of drama and danger in this second part of the series. Through it all everything stays good between Maya and her three mates and they cope well with everything that is thrown at them. It was nice to see their relationships develop a bit more and for the four of them to be even more of a cohesive unit. Everything was very clear and easy to understand. I could feel all the thoughts and emotions between the characters and shared their outrage at Raiden's mother and what she was trying to do.

Please note that this is a reverse harem story and does contain scenes involving sex.

Review: Sorrow's Lie by Danielle DeVor 5 of 5 stars

Sorrow's Lie Sorrow's Lie by Danielle DeVor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jimmy Holiday is an exorcist and given a case by The Order to check out an alleged demon baby before the true experts arrive on a flight. However he finds that the order is not what he thought it was and that they are asking him to do unspeakable things. With the help of a voudou practitioner in the same lane and the safety of his family on the line, can he fight for the life of the child and what will be the repercussions in his life?

I really enjoyed this story. It was like a horror story but quite tame with the scary bits. The story was very well written and everything was clear and easy to understand. There was a lot of action and twists and turns (especially the one at the end which was a complete surprise!). Can be read stand alone even though it is the 4th book in the series.

Review: Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse by JC Andrijeski 5 of 5 stars

Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse Bridge: Bridge & Sword: Apocalypse by JC Andrijeski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Revik has lost everything – his unborn daughter, he got his wife back but they took her mind. So he decides it is time for a final confrontation – he prepares in San Francisco and then everyone moves to New York for the final battle. Can he rescue his child from the Dreng or will he have to kill her to save her from becoming their slave?

OMG – there was so much drama and danger in this book after the events in the previous one it felt like a roller-coaster at times. I felt so desperately SAD for Revik as events unfolded that I just wanted to give him a hug while at the same time I either felt like crying or wanting to kick some butt. There were a lot of descriptions of thoughts and emotions in this book and they were so clear and easy to understand I felt as if I was there living it with them. I can't wait for the next instalment now.

Please note this book needs you to have read the previous books in the series first.

Review: Shamelessly Spellboundby Cassandra Lawson 5 of 5 stars

Shamelessly Spellbound Shamelessly Spellbound by Cassandra Lawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Trevor Dupree is a warlock and a bit of a player. He moved from witch to witch, being infatuated and convinced she will be the one for him - that is until he met Melina Blackwood - a witch who turned him down and then refused to go anywhere near him. For Melina, ever since she met Trevor she can'r get him out of her head and now she is being begged for another chance (can she resist him again?) However there is a woman who will do anything to get Trevor even if that means she has to kill. Can they both come out of this and find happiness together?

I LOVED this story which is a continuation from the events in the book Sinfully Spellbound (although you could read this stand alone). I loved the way the relationship developed between Melina and Trevor and how the danger from the other woman built. Please be aware there is sexual content in this story. I was thrilled with the ending and am now looking forward to the next story in the series. Well written and everything was clear and easy to understand.
