Synopsis

Soulless and exiled from Heaven the Dark Knights have not abandoned their duty. For millennia they’ve battled demons, protecting human kind from Lucifer’s servants. Less than a year ago hundreds of demons escaped Hell world-wide stretching the Knights resources to their limits. Now they face the greatest challenge of all—discovering love.

After a rocky start, wood nymph Laurel and bear-shifter Aiden have made a happy home together in Nocturne Falls.

Until their relatives enter the picture. Before they know it, they’re on a road trip to Nashville – accompanied by Laurel’s sister, Aurora, and Aiden’s buddy, Wade – in order to prove that Aiden’s country music superstar father – who he didn’t even know was his father – didn’t commit the crime he’s being accused of.

Synopsis

Leopard shifter Sasha Weisberg arrives in Nocturne Falls hoping someone in the town of supernaturals might be able to undo the spell an angry ex-friend put on her.

An archangel friend convinces Kianso Kane to travel to Nocturne Falls for a weekend of rest and relaxation. From the onset of the trip, his shaman calling challenged him to return to his Hawaiian roots and acknowledged his shaman birthright. His instincts led him right to Sasha and he knew straightaway she was his true love. But she was caught in a maelstrom of a witches curse. And until she was free, she couldn’t be completely his.

They have one chance on Samhain to undo the curse, or else her next chance won’t be for nineteen years. Can she trust… Continue reading

Synopsis

Barbara Heyer can hear voices of dead people. They whisper of their deaths, seek comfort for those left behind, and occasionally even warn her about future events. But when Barbara’s brother, Colin, is accused of murder, it will take more than her gift to prove his innocence.
Becoming smitten with the handsome investigator, Detective Patrick Fischer, is a serious complication given his assignment to her brother’s case. Barbara senses there is something far deeper—and perhaps much older—than the surface attraction between them. Could that be why she’s visited by a mysterious woman named Emma in her dreams? Could past life regression tie all the seemingly unconnected events together?
Barbara and Patrick must overcome heartache to find the truth to save Colin, and perhaps themselves.

***Valerie – #NerdGirlVal’s  Review***
Rusticles is a bunch of short stories with meaning. Never before have I read a story with such detail, amazing work. Rebecca Gransden is a new author to me and I really enjoyed her work. The stories are very different from most short stories that I have read in the past. Some of them I had to sit back and go back over the story to get the gist of it, hopefully I interpreted them right. Below is my short review of each of the short stories in Rusticles.

Such a great fantasy book! I’ve always loved tales of the Winter Queen. I’ve read various retellings, seen different movies, and really love the lore that surrounds the story of the Winter Queen, and this book was one of my all-time favorites! N.M Howell is a new to me author, but I am SO glad I jumped on this book when I had the opportunity. A child found was raised by high lords, and thus begins this whole journey. Something I really enjoyed about the book was that the main character… Continue reading

Synopsis

Buffy is playing a game. However, the game is her life, and there are no instructions or cheat codes on how to win.

After graduating high school, a voice called “the text parser” emerges in Buffy’s head, narrating her life as a classic text adventure game. Buffy figures this is just a manifestation of her shy, awkward, nerdy nature—until the voice doesn’t go away, and instead begins to dominate her thoughts, telling her how to life her life. Though Buffy tries to beat the game, crash it, and even restart it, it becomes clear that this game is not something she can simply “shut off” or beat without the text parser’s help.

While the text parser tries to give Buffy advice on how “to win the game,” Buffy decides to pursue her own game-plan: start over, make new friends, and win her long-time crush Tristan’s heart. But even when Buffy gets the guy of her dreams, the game doesn’t stop. In fact, it gets worse… Continue reading
