SYNOPSIS

The Rise of the Dawnstar by Farah OomerbhoyAurora Firedrake returns in the spellbinding sequel to The Last of the Firedrakes.

The seven kingdoms of Avalonia are crumbling and evil is spreading across the land like a plague. Queen Morgana is close to finding a way to open The Book of Abraxas and it’s only a matter of time until she uses the power trapped inside its pages to enslave the entire world.

With Avalonia growing more dangerous by the day, Aurora must travel through war-torn lands and deep into the heart of the fae kingdom of Elfi. Her goal is to find a legendary weapon infused with the last of the realm’s ancient magic—the only weapon in the world powerful enough to stop the queen.

Book Review ~ ‘The Rise of the Dawnstar’ by Farah Oomerbhoy ~ 4 Stars!

Wow! What a stunning follow-up to the wonderful ‘The Last of the Firedrakes’. I’d been eagerly awaiting this book since the second I put down the first and boy was I not disappointed.

Farah Oomerbhoy has developed so much as a writer and in this instalment I felt even more at home in the world of Avalonia, and loved how the world-building had strengthened so much. Traveling alongside Aurora through the war-torn kingdoms, we get to see more of more of the Kingdoms of Avalonia, and the dangers that behold our princess.

I loved the development of her character and the strength of her resolve to face the worst, even whilst at times still acting like a typical teenager, which made me so happy to see. We see developments in her love-life as well, but you’ll just have to read that yourself – no spoilers from me. Only to say, there is a new player in the game we call love!

Oomerbhoy has the most beautiful writing style which twists and flows, taking you along in the story with ease. I read for hours before realising that it was late at night, because I was so immersed. The sign of a great storyteller.

4 Stars!

SYNOPSIS

Welcome to Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Sideshow, where necromancy, magical visions, and pyrokinesis are more than just part of the act…

Mara has always longed for a normal life in a normal town where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future. Instead, she roams from place to place, cleaning the tiger cage while her friends perform supernatural feats every night.

When the struggling sideshow is miraculously offered the money they need if they set up camp in Caudry, Louisiana, Mara meets local-boy Gabe…and a normal life has never been more appealing.

But before long, performers begin disappearing and bodes are found mauled by an invisible beast. Mara realizes that there’s a sinister presence lurking in the town with its sights set on getting rid of the sideshow freeks. In order to unravel the truth before the attacker kills everyone Mara holds dear, she has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she was capable of—one that could change her future forever.

Book Review ~ ‘Freek’s by Amanda Hocking ~ 4 Stars!

What an exciting, intriguing and spine-tingling novel! A travelling Carnival with paranormally talented members and acts? Count me in immediately!

We follow Mara, a young girl who has grown up as a member of Gideon’s sideshow, as she is pulled in different directions as she enters her final years as a teen. Desperate for an occasional escape from the sideshow, where the locals don’t view her as a freek, and she can be her own person, without the pressures of having to look after her clairvoyant mother and the sideshow family, she meets Gabe at a party, and suddenly she realises all that she has been missing out on. But even as their relationship deepens, darker forces attacking the sideshow mean that they aren’t safe, and no local person can be trusted.

I adored the carnival feel to the book, and loved getting to know the characters, the animals and seeing the feats of supernatural talent that the sideshow members could perform. Although I loved Gabe and Mara’s growing relationship, and their sweet scenes together, it was the times I spent with the sideshow cast and crew that I loved the most. I really connected to their world, their views of each other as family, and you could really get that sense of the members ‘Running off to join the circus’! I would have loved to have seen more of their acts, to experience more of the magic which we saw second-hand through Mara.

I loved how dark this story got. As a dark force hunts down the members of the Sideshow, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. What I really admired was how Mara wasn’t the girl to always save the day, but was hunted along with the others, and her powers are only discovered towards the end of the story, and not at the beginning like many ‘Chosen One’ stories.

An exciting story which packs a punch, Freeks is a definite must-read for fans of mystery, magic and family!

4 Stars!

Wrapped in Lace by Prescott Lane
Genres: Romance, Contemporary
Release Date: 2nd November 2015

Wrapped in Lace.jpg


FINAL3

SYNOPSIS

When I was a little boy, the best thing about the holiday season was unwrapping presents on Christmas morning — tearing off the paper and tossing it on the floor. Now that I’m a man, I like to unwrap slowly, deliberately, taking my time to savor what lies before me. I still like to throw the wrapping on the floor, but now I know the best gifts come wrapped in lace.

And unlike when I was a kid, I won’t get sick of this present by New Year’s. I’ll definitely be playing with this girl day after day after day.

After six years avoiding my hometown, the last thing I expected when I returned was a wannabe bad girl to unwrap my heart and rip open my soul. But that’s exactly what happened. Now if I can just get the hell out of my own way, maybe I’ll finally get the best gift of all — her!

Come get unwrapped by Drew this holiday.

“There was this guy.”

“OOH, a guy.”

“Shut up,” I said, laughing. “We flirted and drank all night, and he was so hot and sweet and. . . .”

“You are totally gushing over a boy. I can’t believe it.”

“I am not,” I protested, but I knew I was. “I don’t even know his name.”

“Why not?”

“I threw up before we got that far.”

Sabrina fell back on my bed laughing. “You did not.”

I hid my head back under my pillow. “I did.”

“Girl, you are hopeless,” she said, still laughing. “How hot was he?”

I came out from hiding. “Pretty damn hot.”

“As in you’d shave for him? That hot?”

“As in I’d wax for him.”

Sabrina started to fan herself, and I got up and headed to my bathroom, looking for some aspirin. “We’ve got to find this wax-worthy gentleman,” Sabrina called out.

Book Review ~ ‘Wrapped in Lace’ by Prescott Lane ~ 5 Stars!

A sweet and sexy story which is the perfect excuse to start a little festive reading, ‘Wrapped in Lace’ is swoon-worthily romantic and a great treat for this time of year as the cold nights roll in, and you want to curl up with a good book.

There is a second-chance feel to Piper and Drew’s romance, but it isn’t in the traditional, heart-breaking first love way, but in a natural progression of their being close friends as children, crushing on each other as teenagers, and then being separated by moves around the country, which makes their reunion all that more sweet. It’s not a reunion they’d both been dreaming of, they had their own lives, and seemed to little think of the other, but it was fun and spontaneous, perfectly complimenting their personalities.

Piper is a heroine that is easily relatable for women everywhere. She’s stuck in a rut with her love life, she’s still living in her home-town with a job that she enjoys, but which isn’t her passion. Drew seems to have made the most succesful life away from McAdamville, owner of a successful company, and not weighed down by family or relationships. I loved that what we see at face-value with Drew began to twist and turn throughout the book. We begin to see the pain that he has hidden for years, the impossible situation he is in with his family, and the loneliness and abandonment he carries deep inside, without even realising it himself until he steps back into his home-town.

This story has twists and turns, brilliantly developed secondary characters, real-life issues and of course, a pulse-pounding romance. Piper and Drew’s relationship was sweet, sassy and oh so romantic, and I adored their scenes together where they teased each other, and also just sat in silence. The added festive feel also got me excited for the idea of cold snow, thick coats and roaring fires.

5 Stars!

FINAL13
Sole Sister by Brooklyn James.
The Boots My Mother Gave Me #2
Genres: Romance, Contemporary.
Release Date: 31st July 2015.
It’s the book fans have been waiting for: Kat’s story is finally here!

FINAL3

SYNOPSIS
The second book in The Boots My Mother Gave Me series, Sole Sister picks up several years later, continuing the story of Harley LeBeau and her rebellious sister Katrina ‘Kat’ LeBeau.
Relocating to Nashville to be closer to Harley and Miah, Kat aspires to launch her Sole Sister fashion line. A gutsy and impromptu plan suddenly lands her on the cover of The Ville Spill—the local celebrity gossip rag—alongside country music’s latest heartthrob, giving Sole Sister the push it needs. But Kat quickly learns that not all press is good press.
Years removed from an abusive childhood and teenage pregnancy, the past that Kat never talks about continues to seep into her life and relationships. Still struggling with the images of finding her father after his suicide, Kat forges ahead, vowing to avoid past mistakes. To focus on her career and responsibilities as a single mother, she swears off the disappointments of love. The first man she ever loved, her father, broke her heart. The first boy she ever fell in love with, her daughter’s father, broke her heart.
What Kat didn’t plan on was Nashville SWAT Officer Connor Reese. She and Connor have more pulling them together than keeping them apart. Kat finds herself in familiar territory when her plan to steer clear of heartache is derailed after spending a night in his arms. Will facing her past help to secure her future? Will Connor offer her a second chance at life and love? Or will her heart break yet again?
Staying true to its predecessor, Sole Sister explores the dynamics of strength in sisterhood, the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mother and daughter, and the courage to become more than one’s past.

Book Review ~ ‘Sole Sister’ by Brooklyn James ~ 5 Stars!
How long I have waited for this book, and how worth the wait it was! Harley’s story in ‘The Boots My Mother Gave Me’ was one of the most intense and incredible journeys I have ever had the pleasure of reading, and I became so attached to the LeBeau girls and their loves and losses, that the chance to see Kat’s life after all the pain inflicted on her, was something very important to me.
From the word go, ‘Sole Sister’ grabbed me into the world of Kat and Harley LeBeau and I felt like I’d never left! Kat’s journey into the fashion design business, and how Harley’s fame as a songwriter catapults Kat’s name into the media, was great fun. The loving, easy-going, yet still definitely sibling-like relationship between the two was as special in this book as in its predecessor!
Connor was the perfect hero to Kat’s heroine, and I adored their relationship. The time jump at the beginning of the book made me all the more eager to see the two get together as sparks flew from the pages whenever they came across each other. The way that Brooklyn James identified the challenges of single parents dating whilst trying to keep their children’s happiness as a priority was perfectly done, and I really felt the strength of a familial bond, not by blood, but by shared love and affection.
The subject of Kat’s past-abuse, from both her father, and ex-boyfriend are very much key issues in this book, and it made for some very emotional reading to see how desperately Kat wants to save her daughter from being abused as she was. As with in ‘Boots’, in ‘Sole Sister’, this issue is detailed with a perfect balance of sad reality, and sensitivity.
With the added bonus of cameos (and even a whole scene to themselves!) of Harley and Miah with their family, ‘Sole Sister’ was everything I hoped it would be, and it was SO worth the wait!
Thank you Brooklyn James!
5 Stars!

Marquel’s Dilemma by Emily W. Skinner
Marquel #2
Genres: Romance, Thriller.

Marquels Dilemma


FINAL3

SYNOPSIS

SPOILER ALERT – To avoid spoilers, it is advised to read the first novel, Marquel, before reading Marquel’s Dilemma.

Marquel’s Dilemma

The dramatic conclusion of Emily Skinner’s first novel Marquel brought requests from readers to continue the story.
Marquel’s Dilemma begins three years after the actress Marquel’s tragic past has been exposed by tabloid journalist, Mark Collins. The media exploitation of her life brought a new responsibility. She would become a voice of hope for others, not as the actress Marquel, but under her married name.

Zach Manning, Marquel’s psychiatrist, lover — and now husband — made a huge mistake in protecting her. Unbeknownst to his wife, Zach asked for a favor, not weighing the consequences. Now Collins is back for revenge. The first time it was his job… now it’s personal!

FINAL10

The unvarnished truth was that Zach was a lonely, middle-aged, divorced psychiatrist when “Marquel” entered his life. Their sessions had been a mix of tears, anger, darkness and sexual tension. Loving her was the biggest risk he had taken since opening a practice in Beverly Hills. He understood the consequences, but broke his professional ethics for a second chance at love.

He was mesmerized by her. Rumors of a nervous breakdown were just surfacing in the gossip magazines and it was his job to keep her functioning. It was a constant struggle, trying to keep up with the demons that were haunting her.

The car door opened and her gorgeous smile sent his heart racing, as it always did. Its appearance had been so rare in their early days.

“Did you have a good session?” He could see her eyes were red.

She picked up the flowers and kissed him sweetly on the mouth. “You always do the right thing.”

He pulled her in for another kiss, this one lingering.

“I don’t know what I’d do without you,” her finger circled his mouth and she gave him another light kiss before buckling her seat belt. “You make everything right with the world.”

He never felt this way with Isabel. His ex never had the look of love in her eyes when she spoke to him. This was the happiest he’d ever been with a woman.

Emily W. Skinner

Emily had a goal when she was 15, she would have a daughter named Marquel and write a novel titled “Marquel.” She accomplished both and more.
A member of The International Thriller Writers, Emily was a protege of the late master of the pulps or paperback originals, Harry Whittington. Emily interviewed Whittington during her days as a feature writer for the Clearwater Sun daily newspaper and its weekly division. They became friends and he taught her how to plot and gave her approval of the original outline and sample chapter for “Marquel” shortly before he died in 1989.
After Whittington passed away, Emily challenged herself to write as her mentor did and wrote a chapter a day and finished the novel “Marquel” in 52 days. For more details on the novel’s history read:http://www.thefilmmom.blogspot.com/20…
Fast forward, a second daughter, Blair is born and Emily and husband Tom focus on raising their family. Both daughters are now grown and work in Hollywood. So this might be an example of art imitating life or the reverse?
A devoted Catholic, Emily is rekindling her love for writing and has just completed the movie script for “Marquel” and a young adult paranormal appropriately named after her youngest child, “St. Blair: Children of the Night.” She will begin the sequel to “Marquel” in the coming months, currently untitled.
When Emily isn’t working as a marketing consultant or writing, she enjoys antiquing/thrifting and producing short films. Emily is the proud Executive Producer of Blair Skinner’s film “Relative Eternity,” a 2012 LA Shorts Film Festival selection, Sunscreen Film Festival selection and Short Film Corner Festival de Cannes selection.

SYNOPSIS

From international bestselling author, K.N. Lee comes Rise of the Flame, an epic beginning to the Eura Chronicles.

There are six races, four realms, and one human girl who can bring them together in peace…or war. Lilae has been hunted since the night of her birth. She is the only heir to the human god’s throne.

For centuries the races have been separated by an ancient barrier. Now that the barrier is crumbling and vanishing, the races are once again pitted against one another.

For years Lilae and her surrogate family have avoided the dangerous Shadow Elf that hunts her. Years of training seem lost when Lilae is captured and enslaved by the emperor of an enemy race. Through every hardship and moment of torture, Lilae finds comfort only in the strange man from her dreams.

On the other side of the world, Liam leads his army of Tryan’s across the realm to protect his people from Shadow Elves that are invading his land now that the barrier is broken. With his best friend, his betrothed, a fairy, and a specialized order of soldiers, he sets out on a journey to find a grand weapon that can aid him in this inevitable realm war.

The plan seems clear, until Liam dreams of Lilae… and Lilae falls for the emperor that made her his slave.

Lilae watched them in silence. She could feel their fear, knowing their hearts were thumping with terror of the unknown. She wanted them to feel that fear. It was the same fear countless others had felt when those men harmed them. Risa was right about one thing: their weapons were cheap. But these were not boys; they were men who had done this countless times, with success. This would be their last.

“Who’s there?” someone shouted in a high-pitched voice that cracked with his words.

“Demons!” another wailed.

“Shut up, Gred. There ain’t no stupid demons in this forest!” Lilae heard someone reply, yet she could hear the fear in his voice as if he were uncertain about his own reassurances.

“I told you we shouldn’t tempt the Ancients! We’re too close to The Barrier!”

Lilae worked quickly, hoping to get some action before Jaiza killed them all with her skilled archery. She took a deep breath and her vision changed. She could see their moves before they even did them. Everything stilled for her; all sounds muted, and Lilae activated her Focus.

Silence welcome Lilae as she raced into the battle, calculating their every action.

She darted into the mob, with her dagger in her fist. She sliced Gred down before he even saw her coming. Lilae didn’t waste time making sure he was dead. Her dagger had cut his throat with such precision that there were no doubts.

She slammed into a tall, burly man who seemed more like a solid tree. His body was made of pure muscle, hard as stone. Lilae climbed his body and stabbed him in the neck. Blood spurted into the air.

As he fell backward, his hands racing to cover his wound, she hopped from his body and went on to the next. She didn’t need to look back; Lilae always struck true. She could hear him gasping for breath.

Someone grabbed Lilae by her hair from behind. She growled in annoyance and used her Evasion. Her image flickered before his eyes, and in an instant, she swirled out of his grasp. She kicked him in the back with such force that she heard his spine crack.

His scream resonated throughout the woods, drowning out her angry yell at him for having unraveled her long red braid. Lilae put him out of his misery, pouncing onto his back. Her hands were secure against his thick, coarse beard as she snapped his neck.

She stood and swirled around. The remaining men were laying on the ground, covered in blood and dirt. Jaiza’s arrows protruded from their bodies. Lilae calmed her breathing. Only three kills. Better than nothing.
