Succubus Chained (Paranormal Prison)

I bet you’re asking yourself why am I here? What happened that landed me in this cell? Trust me, you aren’t the only one.

I bet you’re asking yourself why am I here? What happened that landed me in this cell? Trust me, you aren’t the only one.

Who am I?

You’d do better to ask, what am I?

You know it’s going to be a bad day when you wake up in the wrong man’s bed, your favorite leather outfit is completely shredded, your best Manolo Blahniks are broken, and your eighty-dollar manicure is ruined. But would you believe me if I said that’s just the tip of the shit storm?

My name is Fiona MacRieve, and I’m a succubus…or I was. I seduced a vampire and we had a fantastic time, until he drained me almost to death. Which wouldn’t have been so bad if he hadn’t forced his blood down my throat thinking it would heal me.Yeah, it didn’t.

Cause that’s not how I heal. So not only did I wake up to losing my best outfit, I woke up dead.

Now I’m a vampire. Some shit you just can’t make up.

Oh.. .and my favorite part? I’m under arrest.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Delightful short holiday read with the Dragons and the granddaughter of Santa’s reindeer, Vixen. Somehow I didn’t read this before, but it is definitely adorable.

Newsletter Coming in September!

In trying to promote my blog, I took note of something I hadn’t seen before. Essentially, I have two main streams of posts going. First are the book reviews which are the reason I started this blog. But here of late I also have what I call “Kitchen” stories. These are the recipes and COVID-19 posts. I enjoy both and I have noticed that more people are starting to follow me.

I don’t think everyone is interested in all the posts. Some people are definitely looking for the book reviews. Others are more interested in the recipes.

Since I plan to start a newsletter, I want to give you, my readers, the opportunity to choose which one to receive, Reviews or Kitchen Stories. You may even want both. Besides the post rundown, there will be recipes and stories that are only available on the newsletter.

So, please take this opportunity to join my newsletter. You can always unsubscribe later if you want.

Also, starting this week, I’ll be updating older posts and reposting them. Along the way, I plan to standardize the layout of the posts. The author biographies will now be found on the series page. Clicking on the “About the Author” graphic will lead you to the page.

Box sets will be linked to the individual books so you can read my review of them individually.

Alien Warlords’ Heir (Warlords of Octava Book 2)

Nothing is more important than keeping her and their child safe.

Dana Hallsey is on her last trip. After so many journeys to the planet of Octava, the Ambassador from Terra has had enough of seeing everybody find their fated when she can’t muster any faith in love anymore. As a single mother, she has to do what’s right for her son – and that’s giving him stability. Not something in abundance in an alien warzone!

Chase and Havoc are two men at odds. The alien warlords are the protectors of their realm and all that stands between Octava and certain annihilation, but sometimes, it feels like they’re a bigger threat to each other than any enemy could be. When fate ties them to the same woman, one who’s stubbornly ready to protect herself, all their conflicts have to come to an end. One way or another.

The fate of Octava, and their love, depends on it.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Double Hotness! Gotta love two hot warlords when they come in such a great body! Can we have some more please? Pretty please?

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.

Chasing Magic – The Last Witch Coven Book 1

Chasing Magic
The Last Witch Coven Book 1
by Rachel Medhurst
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
An elemental witch with limited magic falls in love with a human. Standard really.
My story is a typical one. Girl meets boy, drama ensues, and the warlocks try to kill me. Okay, maybe not so typical. And yet, it’s on point. My whole life, I’ve been one of eight members left in the last witch coven. Cursed to continually revisit the earth until all eight of us unite with our soul match in one lifetime, we fight the warlocks in order to reawaken magic before the witches finally die out.
Antony is my hunky bodyguard, assigned to me by the last witch elder. When I’m kidnapped by the warlocks, he stops at nothing to find me, even though he’s in complete denial about our connection. Still, can’t blame a guy for freaking out when he finds out that he’s a witch, destined to be my soul match. Only time will tell if we’re able to fulfil our fate or will magic fade, along with my happiness?
THIS BOOK WAS PREVIOUSLY CALLED PISCES – ZODIAC TWIN FLAME BOOK 1. IT HAS BEEN REWORKED AND EDITED
**Only .99 cents**

This is an author that is new to me, but I like her style. The book was so well written that I actually sat and read it all in one setting. Once upon a time, that was my normal, but not any more. So for me to say that it caught my interest is saying something.

There were times when I wanted to smack Antony along side his head and tell him to WAKE UP! There were times when I wanted to tell the entire family to “Get A Grip!” Those points could get really frustrating for me.

Chasing Warlocks
The Last Witch Coven Book 2
Bring magic back to earth? Easy peasy. Until my life gets blown apart. Literally.
With a witch elder missing, and a mission to complete, I’m in the perfect position to plan a counter attack on the warlocks. That’s until a disaster at work rips my world apart, leaving me defenceless against our enemy.
My ex-girlfriend Natalie is determined to get me back on my feet, pushing me to become a better witch in order to fight the warlocks and find my soul-match. If I don’t embrace the new me, my magic will fade along with my chance at being happy.

Quick Tip from My Kitchen

Now that we’ve all been stuck at home for the last 5 months, many people find themselves making meals at home as opposed to ordering them. Face it, it’s much cheaper to cook from scratch than it is to order. Now, most of us buy groceries for a number of days each time we go and the meat goes in the freezer.

If you aren’t in the habit of remembering to take the meat out in the morning, (before you left for work), you may occasionally find yourself at lunchtime hoping that your meat will thaw in time!

It’s August, and for most of us, that means hot temperatures. I discovered that if I put the wrapped meat on a plastic plate and sit it on something outside, that it will thaw just fine. For me, hamburger can be taken out at lunchtime. The ribs in the photo needed to be thawed by 2 pm so I could start working them. Luckily, Florida weather takes care of thawing things.

So, give it a try! It works really well for me.

And it doesn’t get any better when she’s marked as the mate of not one, but two of the greatest warlords the planet has to offer… or does it?

Harbor and Cole have nothing but begrudging respect for one another. Yet when they discover they share a fated, and then a child, they’re going to have to learn to get along. It’s easier said than done. With a vicious enemy out to destroy Riley and Octava along with it, the two savage warriors need to learn to cope with one another, while protecting their surprise baby and a mate who doesn’t seem at all willing to divulge her past.
