My Review of Hearts of Stone by Inka Loreen Minden

Hearts of Stone - Guardian Wings 01

Hearts of Stone by Inka Loreen Minden

Series: Guardian Wings #1
: Contemporary Romance



Noir…if he could touch her only once, he would sacrifice his life. Dullness spread in his chest. Of course, Noir’s protection had priority over his own cravings. Like always, he had no other choice but to drool over her from a distance. How robust was a gargoyle heart, really?

Hearts of Stone is a heart-melting love story about a witch and a gargoyle.

Two forlorn souls, not allowed to love…

His Clan took everything from him and forced Vincent to live in the shadows. Shunned by his own kind, his only light in the dark is the witch Noir LeMar. He is her secret guardian. He wants to touch her—only once—but his Clan has cursed him.

Demons have wiped out Noir LeMar’s family. Ever since she’s fighting a lonely battle. She does not know that she has a protector who watches her day and night, while she tries to find the killers of her parents.

To save Noir’s life, Vincent has to give up his cover. Although they feel attracted to each other, both know, they never can fall in love and feel passion. The consequences would be devastating because everything he touches in his human form turns into stone.
But fate has other plans..

I’d thought that he was mine, the dark, arresting man who commanded not only my body but my heart. Dante had swept into my life, and I’d succumbed to the burn of passion in his arms.

I’d believed we had a love that would last forever, but he’d shattered my dreams and broken me into pieces when he’d walked away, taking a piece of my soul with him. Now he has come back seeking my help, and though I try to keep my distance and protect my heart, I cannot deny that the fire between us burns hotter than ever. And I cannot help but fear that this time our passion will reduce us both to ashes.

Dark Instincts

by Suzanne Wright

Phoenix Pack #4


Amazon UK | Amazon US | B&N



It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that’s intoxicating…and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right—nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

No matter how aloof and unfazed Roni acts, Marcus can tell she wants him. When a brutal attack by a jackal pack forces them to work together, it’s the perfect opportunity for Marcus to chip away at her defenses—until he falls into his own trap, completely unprepared for the intensity of their connection. Roni is the only one who’s ever seen past his shifter charm and discovered the man hiding beneath it. And for Marcus, claiming Roni once will mean needing her forever

My review of Bound by Night by Larissa Ione

Larissa’s new vampire series takes you on a roller coaster ride of epic proportions!

5 HUGE stars!

If you loved her Demonica and Lords of Deliverance series like I do you are going to LOVE this one.  Very original take on the well played vampire scene.  I was drawn from the very beginning and not once did I skim pages or get bored.  ACTION PACKED!

My review

Nicole life has always been full of struggles.  At age eight she witnessed her vampire nanny being murdered by his mate Riker and her family being attacked by their vampire servants where her mother and father are killed.  Twenty years later she is the CEO of her family’s company, Daedalus and a medical researcher specializing in vampire phycology.  Daedalus acquires, trains and sells vampire servants.

Shortly after taking on the role of CEO she finds herself kidnapped by the very vampire that lives in her nightmares…Riker.  They demand the release of a female vampire, Neriya.  A vampire midwife that Riker’s clan borrowed from rival clan ShadowSpawn. Without her safe return their clan will be forced to go to war with them.

Riker underestimated this female.  She was clever and surprised the hell out of him.  Stirring feelings that he hasn’t had since his deceased mate Terese.  His clan even likes her.

But when her company threatens the lives of countless vampires slaves she sides with evil.  Realizing the secrets that have been kept from her.  Together with RIker and his clan they attempt to free Neriya.  Things do not turn out as planned and they find their lives in jeopardy.  Not only from Daedalus but from rival clan ShadowSpawn.

Nicole makes a deal with ShadowSpawn in exchange for Riker’s safety.  Riker’s true feelings for Nicole come to surface but will it be too late for them and the future of his clan?

OMG I am hyperventilating impatiently waiting to read the next one!

My review of Shattering Halos by Sunniva Dee

review1.pngWhat if you could meet your guardian angel?  And what if he looked like this?

gabriiel2 That’s exactly what happened to Gaia after a horrific car accident that killed all of her friends.  At first she thought was was hallucinated until that faithful kiss.  He was real, he smelled real, he felt real.

Once she found out Gabriel’s true identity she was in awe of his beauty.  He was sex on a stick.  Every woman alive craved him.

Only thing is she was never supposed to see him.  Heaven will most likely punish him for saving her from the car accident.  The evil are joining together to over throw the balance between Heaven and Hell once and for all.  Gabriel with the help from Michael and his brothers must fight for what is pure and good before billions of demons are released on earth.  Gaia finds herself in the middle of a war.  Feathers start flying (lol sorry I had to say that.)  Will they be able to stop them in time and will Gaia and Gabriel be able to finally be together?
