Nadar (Alien Warlord’s Conquest Book 1)

When fate makes a choice, it takes an alien warlord to shift the tides…

Mara James is angry as hell. Not only is the Union trying to make enemies out of one of the most dangerous warrior races in the galaxy, but somehow she’s come face to face with their fiercest warlord. And he couldn’t be any hotter.

Having suffered through the humiliation of a failed mission with the Flora and the Brion menace, Mara and the rest of the Terran Union fighter pilots are hungry to prove themselves. But for Mara, that chance comes in the form of something completely unexpected – Nadar Brengen. The rebel Corgan warlord who won’t take no for an answer when he sees something he wants.

And this time, it’s her.



Considering that everyone in the galaxy seems to be against it, that seems to be a whole new mission waiting to fail. Not only must they deal with the spark of passion between them, but the stubbornness of the Corgan ruler, willing to risk everything for ancient rites and rules.

Unless Nadar can change his whole race’s opinion – the fierce and unyielding Corgans, who are rumored to cut up other races for spare parts and laugh while they do so.

Unless he can fight, bleed and win for not only Mara, but the future of his people and the land they consider holy.


Unless he changes fate. Unless they change it.


But when a woman makes both your hearts beat like hell in your chest, anything’s possible, right?

I love this!


I love how this just picks up right after the last Brion story! There is a short time break between them but it is just fabulous!

Vi’s a small-town girl with big city dreams. Born and raised in Texas, she’s always had her eyes to the stars. Telling stories is her passion and when she can mix a whole lot of steam with equal parts sexy alien hunks, well, things just get that much better, right?

An ardent Rangers fan, she believes all men should come in a yummy beefcake package and that’s exactly the kind of heroes she prefers. A curvy woman herself, Vi likes to write heroines as sassy as she is.

She likes indulging in a little wine and a little chocolate, but her first love int life is writing and everything else follows second.

Reverse Harems and Shared Worlds

As the song goes: “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet!”

Thanks to the wonderful ARCs that I read, I was introduced to Reverse Harems (RH) awhile ago. I currently have reviewed 2 different series by Heather Long that fall into this category. They are “Heart of the Nebula” and “Untouchable”.

Now Shared Worlds are something that I first came across many years ago with the “Thieves World” series. In that series, each book contained several short stories. An author could borrow the characters from a different author, but couldn’t kill them off. It made for some very interesting stories.

Again thanks to Ms. Long, I found a few new series that combined both Reverse Harems with a Shared World. I’ve come across 2 different series that deal either with a Reform School, “Wicked Reform School” or a Prison, “Paranormal Prison”. They are just beginning so I have to wait patiently for the next ones!

Wicked Reform School is a juvenile detention school. Each type of paranormal being has their own dormitory called a “House.” An adult is named as “Head of House” and has rule over the students there. Students attend standard classes in the morning, and specialized classes in the afternoons. Being late to class could get you sent to the detention center, not a good thing! The motto of this ‘School’ is “Reform or Die” and they mean that literally! Once a year each House has what is called a “Culling.” Surviving that does not automatically mean you leave the school. The best I can tell you is “Stick around, this is about to get interesting!”

There are actually several different series using the term “Paranormal Prison.” The one I’m reading features Reverse Harems. The prison is called Nightmare Penitenary and with good reason I might add! You’re sentenced to the prison and it might be for a month, it might be for life. Prisoners are segregated according to the severity of their sentence just like in real life. Dying in here is a distinct possibility!

As the song reads: "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet!"

Rebel Heart (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire)

Uptown girl meets rough-and-tumble biker — with a shapeshifter twist!

All Cynthia was planning for the weekend was a quick escape to the countryside where her inner dragon can stretch its wings. She wasn’t counting on a handsome, enigmatic wolf shifter coming along and sweeping her off her feet. Cynthia has always been driven by duty rather than desire. But suddenly, she finds herself making reckless, irresponsible choices and telling herself, Just this once…

A night of sizzling passion ensues, but the question remains. Is Cal to blame for making her throw caution to the wind — or is it destiny?

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Short but great! For a minute you had me wondering! I can’t wait to see the end of this series. It has been fantastic every step of the way!!

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Anna Lowe loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting the later inspire her fiction. If she’s not hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story, you’ll find her hiking in the mountains or biking country roads. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Tears for Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 16)

Escaped from hell on earth, lost and alone, a wail in the night calls to not only his beast but also his heart. Finding this tortured woman is all that matters.


On the run, hiding in plain sight, the icy fingers of doom invade her soul. The pull of the world she fled tears at the fiber of her being.


Lovers from different worlds, fighting a common enemy, thrown together by the Reaper himself, helpless but to do as he bids.


Can these two souls find peace when the Devil himself is demanding his due?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was definitely a wonderful couple. The love they have for one another is great. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Someone in the paranormal community is hunting her, and hell if he’s going to fail her again.

Hayden Crowe fronts an all-girls band down in Austin, Texas. Between tending bar so her sister can stay in school and dealing with the fallout after their addict father skipped town, she hasn’t exactly had time to join the social media freak out over the recent outing of vampires and werewolves. 

Her world comes crashing down the night she’s attacked in an alley after a gig and bitten by a feral werewolf. Unable to return home for fear of hurting her sister, and with a message scrawled across her arm warning HOSPITALS NOT SAFE, Hayden is left with just one option…

Him.

Ethan Caldwell doesn’t do relationships. Adopted son of the pack Alpha, he lives a solitary life as a barista and artist. Things three years ago with Hayden Crowe… went too far. By pack law, she couldn’t be told what he was. Ending it was for her own protection. 

But when Hayden shows up on his doorstep, newly changed and in danger, Ethan defies his father’s orders to stay away. Someone in the paranormal community is hunting her, and hell if he’s going to fail her again.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Unexpectedly good. I was surprised to be asked if I would review this book. Well I’m pleased to say that it was really quite enjoyable. It has a different take on shifters that is well thought out. I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Author Kat Kinney lives with her family and an extremely pampered guinea pig who does not like werewolves, or falcons. When she isn’t writing about things that bite and howl, she can be found knitting crazy socks and plotting out future books.

Alien General’s Beloved (Brion Brides Book 6)

Lana Cormac is a woman with a mission. As the captain of a scouting vessel for the Galactic Union, the curvy woman has always put her crew first and herself second. But when two men more myth than reality bursts into her life, she needs to step back and wonder whether she’s been doing things the wrong way all along. Stuck between two Brion generals, both convinced that she can be his and only his, Lana needs to walk a tightrope between keeping a fleet of innocent people alive while subsequently coming to grips with what fate has in store for her.


Could it truly be a Brion general and if so, couldn’t he have picked a less horrible time to show up!?


Corden is a Brion general unlike any other. He is the guardian, the keeper of order for all of the generals, though there are few who know this. Defeat is not a word he recognizes, yet when something out of the darkness of Brion culture comes back to haunt him, even Corden needs to consider the option. But what he isn’t prepared for is that his greatest enemy might come from within, even when the worst nightmare he could imagine is staring him in the eye.

With Lana’s heart and safety on the line, Corden has no option but to win. Even the psychotic fervor of a general long thought dead and gone cannot stand in his way, especially when the man wants to claim Corden’s chosen!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

O.M.G. I can see this. Given how completely a General rules his battleship, I can see the need for someone like Corden. But can you imagine how it must have felt for him to be told this? Lana just couldn’t believe the situation she found herself in!
