Synopsis

Late-night hunts for a crazed serial killer, a vampire-obsessed best friend, and a mountain of classwork is enough for any woman to juggle. But Hannah Lewis isn’t just any coed. She happens to make the best microwaved brownies in Scarlet Harbor. Plus, she’s a wolf shifter.

On a mission to investigate reports of zombie-like monsters terrorizing the masses, vampire Bennet Pierce is prepared for anything—except for the blue-eyed vixen that changes everything. How can he protect her from harm if he himself is a threat?

This standalone story contains steamy vampire/shifter romance, action-packed and suspenseful circumstances, scorching love scenes, and a happily ever after ending.

Synopsis

The Rosinanti Dragons are no more. Since their extinction nearly one thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim its lost world.

For Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought regarding his own past.

As the awful truth of the Rosinanti’s supposed demise comes to light, Valentean must stand together with Seraphina, a magically gifted princess, to embark upon a mission to maintain order and light throughout Terra. Only together can these two lifelong friends face down the resurgence of the Rosinanti legacy, and combat the greatest threat their world has ever known

All her life, she’s been called a kiss-ass and teacher’s pet, all for the crime of being a good student.

I know I started my Straying Sadie review with an OMG and I’m going to start this one the same exact way. This book is outstanding. The series wraps up (?) with a great deal of intensity. More bombshell twists left me reading without blinking and sometimes forgetting to breathe! There was definitely a long string of swearing in my inner monologue, often. The story is well woven and leads into what I hope will be a new series or more of the same series. *not giving away anything… Continue reading
