REVIEW: Lover Eternal by JR Ward

Image
Summary:Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover—for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.

Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships, is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. Her faith in miracles was lost years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…

REVIEW: Dark Lover by JR Ward

Image
Summary:The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes.

REVIEW: Up from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Summary:The Grave Ends Here.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war...

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death...because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives--and those of everyone they hold dear-- will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

Final novel in the Night Huntress series.

BOOK PROMO: Cursed by Jennifer Chance

Image
Thanks to Barclay Publicity for hosting this blitz. Take a look at Jennifer Chances's Cursed. Happy reading!
*****************************


When the prince she was supposed to marry falls for someone else, Edeena Saleri is done with Garronia's courts, crowns, and family curses. She grabs her sisters and escapes to the nobility-free coast of South Carolina, USA.

Refuge isn't anything like it's supposed to be, however. The family's island vacation home now borders a singles' retreat, which Edeena's sisters embrace all too eagerly. Worse, the private protection firm Edeena hires is run by the most infuriating man she's ever met--a rough-hewn, dark-eyed, charismatic charmer named, of course, Prince. He's not a royal and he's nowhere near noble, so there's no way he can break the family curse. And yet...

Vincent "Prince" Rallis has spent his whole life justifying his name. The son of hardworking immigrant parents, he's hustled fo…

Thoughts:This is another one that wasn’t among my favorites in the series, but they can’t all be amazing. There is yet again a lot going on, but some of it is background noise for the most part in the set up for the next book. The big conflict here is a ghost named Kramer. He’s a special brand of evil and hatred for him drives everything. Fabian gets a girlfriend (cute and weird) and she’s the one that brings him to Cat’s attention. All the ensuing trouble is a little crazy. A hotel …

You Had Sex Where?
by Tara Lain

Hi! I’m so happy to be here to celebrate the re-release of my new book, Beach Balls. You may know that this is the third book in my Balls to the Wall series – although all the books stand-alone and this one really does since it’s about two new heroes – Adam and Sky. For all who have asked, the entire series will be re-released this year with some new additions. Plus, there will be 2 NEW books in the series – High Balls coming in October and Bleu Balls which releases in January of 2018

If you’ve joined in on any of my workshops, you know I sometimes write about how to create sizzling sex scenes. Sex scenes are individual to the book and character. They must reveal character and/or forward the plot. If they don’t do that they can be gratuitous and readers may skim them or skip over them entirely. Okay, with that said, it’s fun to add a little spice to a sex scene by placing it in a different setting than the standard bedroom. And, maybe that setting will …
