The Review

Carmen is a smart ass and gets into trouble all the time in her old coven. When a meeting is called a volunteer is asked for to train a new coven. Taking the leap she sets off in hopes of finding a new coven to call home. The only obstacle standing in her way is the imprint bond with a wolf.
Aiden is an easy-going wolf that just imprinted with a sexy witch. The only problem he has is she doesn’t want him. Now faced with the possibility of loosing his wolf he tries to bring her over to his side. But when a devil hunter gets in the way things get hairy.
McKayla Schutt created two awesome characters that mesh extremely well together. You can’t help but fall in love at first sight with them. Her storyline is strong and keeps the momentum going from beginning to end. I find that each book in this series pulls together more loose threads to a bigger story. Highly recommend this book to those who love a romance with a troublesome female lead and a guy that kicks butt.

Stars: 4 out of 5 stars


The Book

SUMMERSOLSTICECarmen’s smart ass mouth might have gotten her into trouble too many times. The Elders call a meeting and Carmen fears it’s all because of her. To her relief, they call for a volunteer to go supervise the new witches down south. She needs to get away from her old coven and prays to the goddess above that the new coven will accept her as a permanent member. She wants to make a good impression with the new witches and hopes she can make a new home in Austin, Nevada. But when she imprints with a wolf and he wants to complete the bond, Carmen balks at the idea of a wolf witch couple. She can’t make a good impression on the new coven if she’s stuck with a wolf.

Aiden has always been an easy-going kind of wolf. That is until he imprints with a witch who doesn’t want him. He needs to find a way to convince Carmen to complete the bond or lose his wolf forever. On his way back to make her see reason, Carmen is taken by a Devil Hunter. With so much at stake Aiden must find a way to keep his normally calm personality or risk losing everything.

Author Spotlight: Karen DuBose

It’s another Monday to start off another knew week. Last week I was on vacation. Went to Des Moines, IA for the Iowa State Fair and to see family and friends. It was a fun adventure with the kids, my fiancé and my mom. Now to get things back on track I am featuring Fantasy author Karen DuBose today in her very own Author Spotlight. Check it out below.


unnamed (1)What’s Crackin’? My name is Karen DuBose. I write fantasy and dark fantasy romance novels. I have 5 books out currently. Book 6 will be out in September and I’m working on edits for book 7. I have one complete series out. The Elder Series. It’s about shifter, witches, fae, elves, and seers. I have 2 stand alone for a series called the Shady Oaks. Wailing waters that is a dark twist on the little mermaid and World of Nightmares is my dark twist on The Nightmare Before Christmas. That one will be out in September. Tainted Magic is the one I’m doing edits for now. It’s the second book in The Light Realm Series. Untainted Magic is the first book.

When I’m not writing or editing. I work my 2 day jobs. One I’m a postal worker and the other I’m an inventory specialist. They take up a lot of my time, but that’s ok. It let’s me do a lot of book signings. I love meeting old and new fans. They are the reason I write. I take pride in my work. It warms my heart when they are waiting for the next book to come out. Interacting with fans is the highlight of my day.

A lot of people have asked me about my writing style. I really don’t have one. What comes to mind is what I write. I don’t plot or outline. The only thing I really do is make a spread sheet for my characters. I have way too many to remember them by heart. I write their descriptions down who know who and so on. I know what the ending of the book is or close to it. Getting there is the fun part. I let the characters do there thing.

My support group is amazing. My husband Steven, my mom Lois and her husband Charles, my sister Cindy, and of course my fans. They are behind me in my crazy world 100%. The first book I wrote. I was nervous about. What if people hate it, what if they make fun of me? Yes, all authors feel this way. Even with their 30th book published.  Every book I publish there is self-doubt. The what ifs. I push through them every time and I’m glad I do. I love to create worlds people can get lost in. Even if it’s only for a little while.

I’ve also been asked what my favorite snack and drink is while I’m writing. White Monsters (Energy Drink) and I don’t really snack. I forget most of the time to eat while I’m writing. The must things I have to have is my monster and music. I’m a happy go lucky woman.

Book Review: The Last Blackstone Dragon

Hey folks today I got a book review for Alicia Montgomery’s paranormal romance book, The Last Blackstone Dragon. Hope you will stop by and check it out. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

The Review

She accepts and offer to get paid to marry a wealthy man named Hank Lennox. The last thing she expects is to be completely attracted to him.

Hank Lennox is a strong dragon shifter that has the burden of keeping his shifter town a float. If he doesn’t take a wife and start a family he leaves everyone with nothing. So, he does the unthinkable he tries to buy himself a wife. The only thing he doesn’t understand is why he is so attracted to her, could she be his true mate?

Alicia Montgomery does a fantastic job creating a situation where two unlikely people that are so different, but so similar together. The tension between the two keeps you on the edge of your seat and you find yourself rooting for them to get together. Then things start getting complicated and one issues after another starts to pull them apart. This book was so interesting I couldn’t put it down and I look forward to the rest of the books in this series. The nice thing is this book is up for grabs as a FREEBIE and the other books in the series are all on Kindle Unlimited. Talk about having my work cut out for me.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


The Book

THE LAST BLACKSTONE DRAGONHenry “Hank” Lennox was the last of his family of dragon shifters, and heir to the crumbling Blackstone empire. In order to protect his people and his legacy, he decides on the unthinkable: buy himself a wife to produce the next generation and secure the future of his family. It was a purely business transaction, so he never thought the bride he meets on his wedding day could also be his mate.
Riva Sinclair would do anything to save her father and their family business, even going into an arranged marriage with a dragon shifter. It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience, a contract that stated she was bought and paid for. Still, she never expected to be so attracted to her husband, and the sky-high walls she put up to protect her heart are starting to crumble.
The same circumstances that brought to them together are about to tear them apart. Can they learn to trust each other or will their pasts destroy the fragile feelings that are only starting to bloom?

Book Review: Clover’s Destined Mate

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

The Review

Clover was out for a run one day when a scream shattered her world. Now thrown into the path of the devil hunters, she might be forced to face her fear. She might finally become a werewolf if she likes it or not. Only time will tell.

Ash has been on the hunt for the missing kids for month with know lead. When his cousins die from an attack on their home, Ash finds himself the guardian of his nephew. He doesn’t have any clue how to take care of a kid but finds help in a sexy curvy lady named, Clover. Will he be able to save the day with so many distractions?

The third and final book in McKayla Schutt’s Denver Troubles series is action packed with lots of heated scenes. I couldn’t put the book down from the first page. She does a great job in showing Clover as an independent woman that has to concur her own fear. If she wants something bad enough will she do it is the question. The struggle of the two main characters leave you gasping for more as they find their way into the future. Mrs. Schutt wraps up the ending of the series and this book with a fine tooth comb. She leaves you still wanting more and hoping for another series featuring these sexy as sin werewolves.

Stars: 5 out of 5

When you write your books do you go straight for pencil and paper or a computer? Why?

Computer because I cannot read my handwriting when I think that fast lol.

Character Interview: Alabama Rain

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am featuring Alabama Rain from her book Alabama Rain. Lol, sounds like she is awesome if she gets her name on the cover. Well anyway today I am featuring her in a character interview. Who is the lucky author that wrote this awesome vampire book? That would be PNR author Lana Campbell. Stop by and check out this spectacular interview to see inside her main character.

The Interview

Who are you and what makes you great?

I’m Alabama Rain Holden and I’m an ex-drug dealer. Until a short while ago nothing made me great. I was forced by my feral vampire father to do despicable things and I hated myself and my life. Then I met a special person who showed me how to rise above my lot in life. He showed me unconditional love and taught me that God loves me unconditionally. Now what makes me great is the ability to forgive those who have hurt me and love them unconditionally through the power of God’s grace and love for me.

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?

When I was a kid before my father lost his sanity and soul and my mother died, I had an amazing family. We traveled in an RV all over the country for my parents’ work. My father played in a band and got gigs in bars, casinos and farmers markets. My mother sold crystal jewelry at farmers markets and flea markets. My parents always managed to take time for me and my brother Gan. They homeschooled us and took us to hundreds of historical sites across the country. We learned history by viewing where it had happened, from battlefields to southern plantations, historical figures homes–you name it.

Do you have a love interest? If you do please tell us about him/her or why you don’t.

I do. His name is Nate Davenport. Like me, he’s a born vampire. His childhood was one of wealth and privilege filled with love too. He’s a Christian. A real one that lives the life and is loving and kind. There isn’t a judgmental bone in his body. He was able to see past the sick and twisted criminal life I led to the agony I felt for having to do it. He saw the true me and at the time, the wounded me. Instead of being disgusted by what I did to survive, he gave me help and hope for a future. He’s the best thing that ever happened to me and did I mention he’s gorgeous? I love him and I’m so happy he’s my life mate.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.

I’m on a journey of self discovery. I lost twelve years of my youth living in darkness and fear because I was a drug dealer for my father. I missed out on college, dating, proms and all the things high school and college kids get to do. Now that I’m free and living a respectable life, I’m trying to see who I am as a person. I recently published my first novel, a parody of my life. It’s about a drug dealer and her brother, who also deals drugs, trying to get out of that life and find their happily ever after. The book is a best seller and I couldn’t be happier. My goal is to continue writing, while finding other talents to cultivate and nurture.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?

My past. I wish I could have been a normal girl that hadn’t had to fight to survive. I wish I could have taken ballet classes instead of martial arts that were necessary for me to learn to fend off thugs, drug dealers and scumbags. I wish I could have had a best friend growing up, but there was no room in my life for friends. I have one now though and that’s my life mate Nate. With his help I’m gaining back all the things I lost and I’m starting to put my past behind me.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?

I don’t have any enemies anymore. Once my ultimate enemy was my father. He had a mental disease called feralism, something vampires who lose their life mates are prone to suffering. He made my life a living hell during the dark years of his sickness. I hated him, yet I loved him and wanted him to love me back. He couldn’t because he existed in a place of darkness so smothering it destroyed his ability to tell right from wrong. His crimes and sins finally caught up with him, though. He was arrested by a vampire tribunal and was facing a death sentence which caused him to have a revelation about the man he’d become. It was God who propagated that revelation for my father and he repented of his horrible crimes and all the vicious, insufferable things he did to me. He begged me to forgive him and I did. Today I have a wonderful, loving father who is no longer my enemy, but a man I can love and respect because he now walks with God.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?

Alabama Rain is an emotional roller coaster ride and I cried writing it more than any book I’ve ever written. Alabama’s father, Ken Holden was absolutely the most sick and twisted villain I’ve ever created. He murdered people, raped young girls, peddled copious amounts of drugs, did them himself and turned teen humans and vampires into drug dealers and addicts. An awful person he was until God opened his eyes to the vile, disgusting creature he’d been. In Alabama Rain, Ken gets saved and does everything in his power to make up for his evil. I felt Ken needed his own story that occurs after being imprisoned by a vampire tribunal for all his heinous crimes. My next book is Ken’s journey to forgive himself, which doesn’t come easy. He has some help, though. Lovely Eden McCallister, a vampire psychologist who deals with feral vampires, helps him see there can be life after being a feral vampire and forgiving oneself doesn’t mean discounting or forgetting the terrible things Ken did to other people.


The Book

Lana Campbell Alabama Rain for printAlabama Rain Holden’s life is a dreadful and dangerous one as a thief of drugs for her father, drug lord Ken Holden. Rain hates her life, but she’s damned good at what she does. As a vampire with an acute sense of smell, she can sniff out any drug as well as a blood hound, enchant the human mule with the goods to be sold and relieve him or her of the product without the person never remembering the encounter.

One night her drug thievery takes her to Davenport Tower, an opulent forty eight stories of luxury condos owned by the handsome, vampire billionaire, Nate Davenport. Rain’s job that evening is to locate the sellers carrying seventy-five pounds of Columbian weed, steal it and return the goods to her father. Unfortunately, the heist going down in Davenport Tower’s parking garage is interrupted by none other than Nate Davenport himself.

Nate is incensed when he discovers Rain is a drug dealer operating on his turf. He embarks on a mission to catch her committing a crime so he can bring her before a vampire tribunal where she will pay for her crimes with her life. In his efforts to get the evidence Nate needs against Rain, he instead gets information he never bargained for. Once he learns her dark secret, that she’s been brutally forced into this life of crime by her maniacal father, Nate will stop at nothing to liberate her from her feral vampire father.

To survive in a world she hates, Rain adopts a bad ass persona. It doesn’t take Nate long to see the real Alabama Rain’s heart. She’s brave and fearless, kind and compassionate. She even puts her life on the line to save twelve young girls her father has turned into vampire drug dealers. Nate falls for her and hard. But Rain’s seedy, violent world may just cost him his life when Rain’s father discovers Rain and Nate have fallen in love.

The Author

Lana Campbell LowResLana Campbell is the author of the Forever and a Night vampire romance series. All of her books are psychological thrillers. They each have a Christian element, a feel good message and a romance so sweet and hot they’ll leave you breathless. She loves writing paranormal romance and is an avid reader of it too. From the time she was fourteen Lana always had a romance novel in her backpack and was reading it after school, at school, wherever she could find a few minutes to read. Reading enticed her to write. She wrote her first book in 1995, but never considered publishing anything until much later. She got serious about publishing in 2014 and book one, Forever and a Night came out in 2016. There are currently six more stand alone books in her series. Lana lives in Pea Ridge AR with her oldest daughter, Jessica and a cat named Jenna. If she’s not writing you can probably find her at the nearest lake.

So what do I write?

Christian paranormal romance psychological thrillers. Quite a combination, huh? Well, my vampires are most unique. I can almost promise you won’t find them typical. Some are famous billionaires, a few are OB/GYN’s for vampires. I’ve also got a computer geek, a interior decorator and oh, last but not least a thief of drugs.
Each story has bigger than life heroes and heroines and you won’t be able to help getting invested in their lives and all their drama. There’s always a villain you’ll love to hate who will stop an nothing to destroy the MC’s lives and love.

All stories have a message of redemption in them, leaving you feeling good after the drama-drenched rollercoaster ride of danger and disasters for the hero and heroine.

You’ll get no cliffhangers with my stories. All stand alone and all have happily every afters.

If you’re looking to sink into a story that will sweep you away and leave you hungry for more, try the books in my Forever and a Night series. You’ll be glad you did.

Book Review~ Aribelle: The First Female Alpha

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK REVIEW FEATURES A BOOK WITH ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

Welcome to hump day and boy do I got a treat for you. Today I am featuring a review on McKayla Schutt’s latest release “Aribelle: The First Female Alpha.” This book was beyond amazing and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I actually sat down and read it only in a few hours, mainly because I couldn’t put it down. Check out my review below.

The Review

Aribelle is the first born of her family. She is first in line to take the alpha spot when wolves start showing up with their hearts cut out. Now with the burden of leadership things are even more complicated when she imprints with the rival packs second in command. Aribelle has to find out who is killing her pack mates and keep a level head while showing she has what it takes to be on top in a man’s job.

Nikolaj is the second in command to his feisty new mates rival pack. His pack mates have been coming up dead for weeks. The only course of action is to blame the rival pack alpha for the crimes. But, when he goes to confront the enemy alpha things get hairy. Now imprinted to the new she-alpha Nikolaj man pride is put to the test. Will he be able to find a balance to keep his mate?

McKayla Schutt switches the roles in this book of hers. Instead of the usual dominant male lead taking over the pack with a female trying to find her place, we find ourselves with a female alpha. She does a wonderful job showing the emotional struggle for both her main characters. Each faces their own obstacles while trying to keep a level head. Not only that you can see the strength the two pull off each other. Her world building is spot on and makes like-able characters that make you fall in love with them on page one. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a twist on the tradition male power role. It’s about time a female took the lead.

Stars: 5 out of 5 stars


The Book

Drunk- check.
Imprinted- check.
Mated??
I glanced over at the sleeping wolf in the bed and my boy warms with excitement.
Mated- check.
Things just became complicated!

Rayne’s Perfect Mate Book Review

Just getting around to posting my review for this awesome book I read last week. It has been hectic with trying to find the time to sit down to focus on my blog. You’re probably wondering, if you don’t have time to blog then when do you have the time to read. I would say I get to read maybe once a week. I actually sat down to read Rayne’s Perfect Mate the same day I bought it. It was done in two hours. I devoured it that fast. You will find my review below and if you’re wondering I loved it.

****

Rayne’s Perfect Mate was an awesome read. It had me gripped from the very first page. The pages just went by so fast I devoured this book in under 2 hours and want more. McKayla did an awesome job depicting the true turmoil that inflicts mothers that are faced with the worse change possible, raising your kids alone. Take a journey to how she finds the answer to all her problems after a mate she never imprinted with walks out for her true mate to walk in. Looking forward to book 3 and hopefully more :).


RAYNESPERFECTMATE_COVERRAYNE’S PERFECT MATE

Book 2 in the Denver Troubles Series

When Rayne finds out she’s pregnant with her second baby it comes right on the heel of her mate leaving her. Now she’s on her own and has no time to be happy…with her emotions rolling out of control she thought things couldn’t get worse. Not until she imprints with her boss, Zac. Rayne hopes to catch a small break but the man she’s meant to be with has his own hesitations on becoming an alpha dad. She must be strong for her little girl, Annmarie, and her unborn child. No matter how bad things get. When Annmarie goes missing she’s ready to tear apart the whole city to find her. With or without Zac at her side.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, will stop her from protecting her kids even if it breaks her heart.

Zac has forced himself to keep his distance from Rayne for two long years but now that’s no longer an issue when they imprint at the grocery store…he’s not sure who’s more shocked. Him or Rayne. But completing the bond will make him a father to another man’s daughter and add to that…Rayne is pregnant. He’s not sure if he’s ready for everything; two kids and neither of them are his. Then things go to hell like a -bad shift when Rayne’s daughter goes missing and he suddenly feels as if a piece of him clicks into place. Can he and Rayne face their problems together? Or will they crash and burn in the face of such immense trials?

He’ll be faced with challenges he never thought possible all because of the woman he loves.

Maple’s Strong Alpha Book Review

In my October Newsletter I featured McKayla Schutt’s new release Rayne’s Perfect Mate to all my VIP Readers. Once I found out Rayne’s book was the second in the series I went out and bought book 1. I wanted to get an idea of McKayla’s work and didn’t expect the outcome I got.

Maple’s Strong Alpha is suspenseful, steamy and a hole can of awesome mixed into one novella size book. I haven’t gotten this deep into a book in a long time and I couldn’t put it down. Each character had their own realm of stubborn mixed with wolf hormones going crazy. There were times I wanted to laugh at characteristics the wolves showcased. But, the hardest part was waiting for the climax of the book. I won’t reveal any spoilers.

After reading this book I was hooked. I already purchased book 2 and read it in one sitting. Now I am waiting on book 3. This is by far my favorite read of 2018 and highly recommend everyone to snatch this one up. McKayla already has wolves prancing around in my head making me want to write my own stories.


Screen Shot 2018-10-22 at 11.15.20 PMMAPLE’S STRONG ALPHA

When seven-year-old Cora landed on Raymand’s door step, he planned on finding her a permanent home… somewhere else. With hunters killing parents and kidnapping pups for God only knows what, Raymand is trying to keep his whole pack protected. When he meets his feisty mate, Maple, the urgency to get Cora out grows stronger. He won’t delay completing the bond with Maple.

Nothing will stop him from creating his own family with his mate.

Maple has always been the headstrong wolf that doesn’t take crap from anyone. When she goes to meet the pack’s lawyer about contract issues, she meets the alpha struggling to deal with Cora who lost both of her parents. Even before they imprint, Maple feels a deep connection to the sexy alpha and this cute pup. She wants to make things work with her bad alpha mate and she plans on convincing him to be a dad to little Cora.

She’ll challenge the alpha to keep Cora in their lives.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW w/ Aurora Jean Alexander

Welcome to my Friday Author Spotlight. Today, I will be sitting down with good friend, Author Aurora Jean Alexander. She is an up and coming Paranormal Romance/Fantasy author that will soon release her first book. Please, help me welcome her and I hope you all enjoy.


THE INTERVIEW!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you decided to become a writer?
I’ve always been a writer. While other kids were drawing and playing with puzzles and dolls I was creating my little stories, dreaming about them and finally writing them down.

Where are you from? Does your area have a good writing community? Tell us a little bit about it.
Nashville does have a good writing community. It holds book fairs and writer’s conferences.

What do you enjoy doing aside from writing?
I love going for long walks, I have three wonderful cats and I’m a Martial Art expert.

What inspires you to write?
I’d like to say: almost anything. I think of stories when I’m going for a walk. I listen to conversations when sitting in a café, restaurant or bookstore. But mostly I’m inspired in the backyard of an amazing home in California with the blue pool and the peace and silence. At these moments my characters come to life and the story continues.

How often do you write? Do you have a page/word count? Do you set goals for yourself? Tell us a bit about your writing and how you keep things going.
I write as often as I can. Occasionally I’m using meeting breaks to write, or lunch breaks. Then there are other days I’m simply too tired and need some time off.

When did you first consider yourself an author?
When I realized I’m getting closer to being published. I worked with my editor on finishing that book and was looking for a cover designer. I already had my copyright lawyer and I understood: I’m getting there! I’m an author!

What is the best writing advice you’ve ever received? Who was it from?
As for your use of language: Remember that two great masters of language, William Shakespeare and James Joyce, wrote sentences which were almost childlike when their subjects were most profound. ‘To be or not to be?’ asks Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The longest word is three letters long. — Kurt Vonnegut

What is the worst writing advice you’ve ever received?
Write it down. It doesn’t have to be a good story, as long as it’s written. “What”? I was asking myself if it’s not sufficient we authors are ‘suffering’ from self-doubt. Yes, make it easier for us and tell us it doesn’t have to be a good book!?

What book or series do you enjoy reading over and over again?
James Clavell’s Shogun, which is one of the best books on Earth and Sidney Sheldon’s Master of the Game. For some reason this book fascinates me, even though he wrote better books than this one.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, and you could only have five books with you, what would they be?
Shogun by James Clavell, The Ninja by Eric van Lustbader, Cheaper by the Dozen and Bells on their toes by Frank B. Gilbreth jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth-Carey, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Phantom by Susan Kay. And I hope I wouldn’t have to stay on that island longer than 7 days, I’d run out of books!

Do you write in first or third person, past or present tense, and why?
I prefer writing in the first person. It makes it easier for me to get to know my main character. But I did decide to write at least one book in the third person since there were too many feelings, senses and thoughts rather than speech which made it easier to draw the main character.

What is your writing process? Do you have any weird quirks to share?
I’m writing the very first draft by hand. During typing it into the computer I have the chance to catch the one or other flaws already. Then I work through the book again before starting my personal editing. Then I send the book to the editor.

How do you come up with the titles for your books? Do you find it difficult? Do you have a process?
I had a few good ideas for the series. But since I’m working on book 7 now I’m slowly running out of titles. I need to brainstorm. Occasionally I ask friends to help me.

What are you working on now? Do you have any upcoming releases we should watch for?
I’m working on a Paranormal Romance series. And, if everything works out as planned I’d love to publish before Christmas.

Well folks, that’s it for this interview. Hope you all enjoyed learning about Aurora, she is defiantly an author to keep an eye out for. Once we find out the release of her first book I will make sure to have her back. Till then check out Aurora’s social media and sign-up for her mailing list to follow along with her on her writing journey. Till next time, happy writing! 🙂
