THE SHIFTER WARS by Kerry Adrienne

Enter the world of USA Today Bestselling Author Kerry Adrienne’s Shifter Wars.  Bears, lions, wolves and more are in a war to control Deep Creek and the ancestral spirit that commands the Cave of Whispers…and all its secrets. Catch-up with the series today!

Read the series in order!

Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one's mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It's clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it's a means of survival. But what Amy doesn't realize is she's reawakened the beast within him.

Griff's dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff's entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

Bear shifters exist.

Professor Bria Lane has known this since she was a child. Now she’s returned to the forests of Deep Creek to prove it to the world. She has no idea how close she is to that proof in ruggedly sexy park ranger Derek Poole. Intimately close. But uncovering Derek’s wild side comes with a shattering price.

Like a magnet meeting metal, Derek is drawn to Bria. His destiny. His mate. So beautiful and so vulnerable. So dangerous, too: an encroachment of lions, vengeful and vicious, is closing in and they’re ready for war. Now is not the time to be distracted like a lovesick cub.

If Bria reveals the truth of the Deep Creek shifters to the world, she’ll bring out the worst of both sides. But Derek can’t hide his secrets from the love of his life forever. He knows they’re playing with fire – and that when passion runs this hot, this reckless, someone’s bound to get burned.

For Marco, heir to the lions' throne, seizing control of the Cave of Whispers from the bear clan is more than just a quest—it's fulfilling the legacy of his breed. But the latest crusade has left Marco gravely wounded in enemy territory and in the hands of Alicia, healer for the bears. An irresistibly sensuous adversary, Alicia presents a serious problem. She carries the scent of a mate.

Drawn to this dominant master of his den, Alicia knows her allegiance has been compromised. His brooding sexuality is testing her defenses, but falling in love with Marco means falling in league with a rival shifter. And turning her back on the bears in a time of war is a lethal move.

Two breeds united by destiny could inspire a peaceful new future for their opposing clans—or ignite the fiercest battle yet and destroy all of Deep Creek forever.

Olivia, born blind and without the ability to shift, yearns to seek her own fate away from her watchful and devoted wolf pack. Vulnerable and stuck in human form, she's alone and at risk in the forest's brutal winter when she's rescued by a park ranger and taken to his cabin in Deep Creek. By the warmth of a crackling fire, she's comforted by his presence. But it's his rugged scent that stirs something in her she's never felt before.

Bear shifter Powell sensed the instant he held her that Olivia was his mate. He also knew she had the untapped powers to discover her true shifting nature—if only he could convince her to trust in him, and to believe in herself. Now the one thing that stands to threaten their healing mating hunger is Olivia's distrusting and vigilant pack. A pack prepared to do anything to get her back.

But there is no danger as strong, no desire so liberating as what Powell is bringing out in her—because Olivia can finally see where her destiny lies.

Dark and Edgy Suspense: Such Dark Things (Review)

A modern day Fatal Attraction meets The Girl on the Train, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling new adult author Courtney Cole, now writing dark psychological suspense under the name Courtney Tate Evans.

From the outside, Dr. Corinne Cabot is living the American dream: a successful ER physician, she is married to a hardworking and handsome psychologist. Together they own a charming house in the Chicago suburbs. But Cabot has a dark personal past and her memory has holes she tries to fill in. Her sleep is ravaged by recurring nightmares of that night when, as a teenager, she found her father standing next to the bodies of two people he had shot dead. It is what she can't remember about that night that utterly haunts her. Her father is still alive in jail for that terrible crime. At times now, despite her success, she fears she is truly unable to determine what is real and what is not. Then she starts to suspect that something is amiss with her husband and realizes that nothing--and no one--in her life is as it appears.

I was introduced to Courtney Evan Tate's brand of dark and edgy when I read Princess, one of her older works as Courtney Cole. I loved it then, and I love it now! I wasn't surprised at the depth and layers she's created to take readers on a dark ride through the lives of a successful couple.

I will forever measure any story that claims to be dark and edgy against Such Dark Things, because this one goes where others won't and still manages to be meaningful and thought-provoking. The story misdirects while leading you to the heart of the novel. The terror and guilt Corrine carries deep, deep in her subconscious haunt her until her nightmares bleed into reality. Nearing the anniversary of a tragedy, that ended with her father in prison, Corinne retreats into herself, straining her marriage while questioning her sanity, and Jude himself has a test of loyalty that could potentially harm their relationship further.

This whirlwind psychological suspense is totally consuming! As the Jude and Corinne's lives spiral out of control the story sucks you further in. Flitting back and forth, from past to present, in both Jude and Corinne's perspective was the perfect way to tell this story. I'm quite surprised with how the secrets and motives of the characters were carefully hidden until the right moment. Some elements of the plot just snuck up on me! It's easy to feed off the emotions of the characters and react to the decisions they make, proving this is a completely engaging read.

Such Dark Things is truly an unputdownable read and I gleefully recommend it for fans of The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Riesz!

Release Alert: FAST BURN by Lori Foster

From New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster, comes FAST BURN —the fourth standalone novel in her Body Armor Series!
For the men of the Body Armor agency, the only thing more dangerous than the job they do is the risk of losing their hearts. FAST BURN is now available! 

For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…

The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.

Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when Sahara needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

“Brand Berry is here to see you.”
Surprised, Sahara glanced at Enoch, her right-hand man and very good friend. “Brand is here?” She imme­diately felt flustered. Absurd. “I wasn’t expecting him. Did I miss a meeting?”
“No.” Enoch lowered his voice in a conspiratorial way. “He said he only needed a minute of your time when you were free, and since you’re free right now—”
“Yes, of course. Show him in.” Even as she said it, a tiny unfamiliar thrill ran through her.
She’d made a point of surrounding herself with some of the finest male specimens on the planet—professional fighters that she’d turned into prime bodyguards, each of them in high demand. It was her vision for Body Armor, to get rid of the stuffy Men in Black clones and offer in­stead real men, with real muscles, certifiable machismo and lethal ability with or without a weapon.
No, she didn’t fire the previously established body­guards; that would have been disloyal to her brother, who’d hired them. She simply reassigned them to the more boring cases, and overall they were happy with that.
Anything to do with a celebrity, a dignitary or a poli­tician her elite team now covered.
She desperately wanted to add Brand to that team. 
Thinking she’d have a minute, she was just circling out from behind her desk when Brand stepped in around Enoch. Instead of waiting in the guest area, as a client would do, he must have been hovering right outside her door.
Her toes curled in her high heels.
Enoch was on the small side, five-two, slight of build, with average brown hair and eyes. It was his keen in­telligence and attention to detail that made him so per­fect at his job.
But his size didn’t really matter when he stood next to a man who made most everyone seem small, her in­cluded. Brand was a big and badass professional MMA fighter with a solid steel frame of muscle all wrapped up in a cocky attitude.
Faded jeans molded to his thick thighs, going well with his running shoes and an ancient Aerosmith T-shirt that stretched over his chest and broad shoulders. Re­flective sunglasses pushed to the top of his head made his golden‑brown hair messy. Darker brown eyes held her captive as he murmured, “Sahara.”
Leaning a hip against her desk, she drank in the rug­ged, virile sight of him. “Be still my heart.”
Wary exasperation rooted him to the spot.
Yes, she always spoke her mind. Why not? She was the boss and her employees knew her interest in them wasn’t personal. Of course, Brand wasn’t yet an em­ployee.
Putting her hands together, her fingers extended to frame him in a square, she remarked, “A photo of you looking just like that could launch my new line of ad­vertisement.”
He crossed his arms. “Advertisement for what?” 
“Bodyguards with ability and sex appeal.” He’d look great on a billboard, maybe with a gun in his hand. She could already see it. Maybe she should ask Enoch to keep a camera at his desk for occasions like this?
When Brand just stood there, his expression amused, she smiled. “Tell me you’ve come to give me good news.” She’d been after him for a few months now to join the agency, constantly throwing out bait, trying to reel him in. He’d nibbled, but he wasn’t caught. Not yet.
“I came to talk about that, yes.”
Elation conflicted with disappointment. There were times when she hoped they could take a different path from employer and employee, one more personal, in­timate.
Even…sexually satisfying.
But in the end, the business came first. Always.
She hadn’t given up hope for her brother, and when he finally returned, he deserved to find the company thriving.
She’d put her heart and soul into making that happen. There was no time for anything else.

Blog Tour: Guardian's Bond (Review)

Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.

Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.

Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions and with his body.

Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.

This book is approximately 90,000 words

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Guardian's Bond is the first in a new series from Haven Brotherhood author, Rhenna Morgan. It's a delicious fantasy romance with a unique storyline and impressive set of characters!

Priest Rahandras creates beautiful tattoos, and for the people under his protection, those tattoos are inked with a piece of his power as High Priest of the Vol án. The clan is in disarray because of a tragedy that centered around Priest's brother betraying the clan. Fifty years later, some of his people are denying their heritage and keeping their offspring in the dark. Such is the case with Kateri and her brother Alek. The two are forced into the world when their parents are viciously killed and their grandmother, Naomi, had no choice but to let them in on the hidden world.

Guardian's Bond starts off in the most spectacular way. The very first chapter, when Kateri and Priest meet, sets the tone for the novel. It's the start of a cat and mouse game as Kateri's logic fails to allow her to believe in her heritage and the possibility that she and Priest were made for each other. As Kateri and her brother are exposed to the clan we get to see the extent of Draven's evil and how it hasn't completely stopped the Volán from thriving in modern times. But the threat is lurking on every page. That undeniable sense of the other shoe dropping lingers behind every step Kateri and Priest make toward each other. As the chapters flew by, because yes I was reading like a maniac, I kept wondering when everything was going to crash around their heads. When it did, it happened unexpectedly and definitely not in the way I imagined. Either way, I'm hooked because there is no way I can walk away from this series without knowing what's next!

I expected the big showdown against Draven would happen sooner than it did, but the anticipation just made me read faster! The action, red-hot romance, and world-building of Guardian's Bond just screams for your attention! The Ancient Ink series is definitely one to get hooked on now!

Blog Tour: Level Me Up (Audiobook Review)

Can the gamer win the girl in LEVEL ME UP by Lauren Helms? Dex Roberts falls hard and fast for Morgan Lawson, but the last thing Morgan is looking for while attending Comic-Con, is love. Fans of R.S. Grey and Gaming the System series by Brenna Aubrey will love this nerdy and flirty story about what happens when a sweet and sexy pro gamer meets the girl-next-door. Now available on audiobook!

This debut new adult romance brings you an even mix of nerdy and flirty in a story about a girl-next-door and her professional gamer boy.

Morgan Lawson wasn’t looking for love when attending Comic-Con. She just wanted a good time. But even before exchanging their first words, Morgan finds herself drawn to Dex. Before she realizes it, Morgan is caught up in the drop-dead sexy gamer.

Dex Roberts didn’t think falling in love was a big deal. But he knew the moment he saw Morgan, he wanted more. He fell hard and fast but wasn’t surprised when the downfalls of dating a professional video gamer became too much for Morgan. To Dex, video games are life. But he’ll bide his time because he doesn’t want anyone else.

It turns out a broken heart is harder to deal with than falling in love. Once Morgan decides what truly makes her happy, there’s no time to waste. But without any warning, life threatens to destroy what both Morgan and Dex want with each other.

Lauren Helms's debut new adult romance is absolutely adorable! Morgan Lawson, pulled into the world of gaming by way of a chance invitation to Comic-Con, finds the man of her dreams and has to fight herself in order to find her happily ever after. Besides the references to just about all my favorite shows, Level Me Up proves flirty and nerdy mix very well together.

Dex and Morgan are two different people. Dex is a professional gamer and Morgan knows absolutely nothing about video games Yet, despite walking different paths they strike an immediate bond and fall into a whirlwind romance. The two are clearly into each other, but Morgan's insecurity has the potential for relationship disaster. When she decides that she has to find what makes her truly happy and resolve issues with her father, her relationship with Dex takes a nosedive. At this point of the story the drama spikes and keeps you wondering whether the couple will find a way to hold on to each other. Throw in a plot twist and you've got yourself an engaging read!

The Performance: This is first I've ever heard Lacey Gilleran perform narration for an audiobook and though she was pleasing to listen to, the story was read as it's written and not with inflections to make it sound like a scene playing out. In particular, the sex scenes came across as monotone, yet it was definitely written with all the right phrases to be passionate and scorching. I thought she represented certain characters well, like Morgan's friends. Their attitudes and flair came through loud and clear! Even though the story is about 6 hours long, it doesn't go by too quickly. The reading pace is a steady one that allows you to get into the story and feel like you've gotten your money's worth in listening time.

There's all the geekery and romance you can possibly pack into one story in Level Me Up! I definitely recommend this story to fans of Cathy Yardley's Fandom Hearts series.
