Review: Blood Wolf Dawning by Rhyannon Byrd

If this was what falling for someone did to a person—what craving them felt like—then Sayre Murphy wanted no part of it…

Ever. She might be young and inexperienced, but she was a woman. And she had finally had enough! Cian Hennessey might be the most magnificent, infuriating, arrogant male she had ever known. But the tall Bloodrunner treated her as if she were nothing more than a child, making it painfully clear that despite whatever connection they shared, he'd never see her as an adult female. After disappearing from her life for five years, the werewolf was back, claiming that she was in serious danger and must drop everything to go with him immediately.

Cian was as deadly as he was beautiful. But the young witch knew he would never cause her physical harm. The safety of her heart, however, was a different matter…

This book wasn't my first book that I've read by Rhyannon Byrd but it was the first in this series. It was also the first Harlequin I've read in a while and I was pleasantly surprised. It was well written with a touch of heat and a fully fleshed out story. Even with it being the 7th book in a series I wasn't lost nor did I feel left out. The villain was more one-sided than I would like but that could be because these are smaller books and have to conform to certain size requirements. My other problem is that there are six more I want to read lol. But that is a good problem to have. I was given this book in exchange for a fair and honest review by Netgalley.

Blood Red: The Complete First Season

Paranormal Romance
Date Published: January 15, 2015

Evie Williams lives a boring life – and she likes it that way. Her world is very black and white. Routine is good. Excitement is bad. She’s happy to play by her self-imposed rules. After all, they help her keep her abusive, stalker ex-boyfriend at bay. Or so she believes…

But there’s more to the world than Evie could possibly imagine. Elves, vampires, witches and pro-Humanity terrorists are very real – and she can sense the danger they pose to her and others. Worst of all, they just realized how precious Evie’s gift is.

As the world Evie never imagined possible closes in on her, Chris, the vampire in charge of studying Evie, is getting more and more interested in her… and it has nothing to do with his loyalty to his vampire father.

Blood Red: The Complete First Season is a story of unlikely heroes, damsels who refuse to be in distress and political conflicts solved by fights to the death.

At first this book was a tad confusing because there were quite a few story lines going on at once. There is Evie's ability and her dealing with it which is sort of a lie/danger detector and the fact that she's of "royal" blood in the hunter society and by hunter I mean not the nice one that hunts the bad "Myth's" they are hunter's who loathe all myth's good bad or indifferent. Also one of her friends is a witch who is keeping tabs on her and two of her other friends that are of "royal blood" too. And last but not least is her stalker Dan and her new love interest which happens to be a vampire. And poor Evie is dealing with all of this at once has her going in circles at times but she handles it very well most times. By the time I got close to the end of the book I was truly enjoying it. This is a new to me author but I would definitely read more by her.
I have one complaint and even though I don't do spoilers or try not too anyhow I just want to say if you don't like cliffhangers then this is not for you because it definitely does leave hanging rather abruptly. Even so I it was a good read so I am going to give it 4 stars. I am not a patient person so I am itching to read the next one but I guess I'll be waiting until the summer.

I was given this book in exchange for a fair and honest review by the author.

Revew: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep

There’s nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill—and my murder to plan.

With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.

The thing is, I’m not the only target. I can see through the tangled threads enough to know that every bit of bad luck my friends have been having lately is no accident—and that each unfortunate “coincidence” is just one more arrow drawing ever closer to hitting the real bulls-eye. Though new to Ashland, this M. M. Monroe is no stranger to irony, trying to get me, an assassin, framed for murder. Yet, as my enemy’s master plan is slowly revealed, I have a sinking feeling that it will take more than my powerful Ice and Stone magic to stop my whole life from going up in flames.

I believe this is one of my favorite Gin books. When Gin goes to take down the villain in this one she is in for the fight for her life. But she has to do it since that witch is going after her family. And nobody hurts her family. I like Owen in this one even though there is little of him in the book it shows that he really cares for Gin. Also it shows that Gin's family is there for her.
The consequences of the showdown through me. I think we'll see more about that in the next book. I keep hoping that things will settle down for Gin but I know that if they do I'll miss the action. I give this book 5 stars and I received it from Netgalley for a fair and honest review. And I am going to be anxiously waiting for the next one.

Review. Court of Night fall by Karpov Kindrade

I've spent my life in shades of grey. It wasn't until I died that my world filled with color.

That night, I still lived in black and white. There was a full moon. Full and looking as if it had been rolled in powdered sugar then plopped back into the sky, so that a white dusting shone around it like a halo.

I've never believed in monsters, or any of that nonsense. Never believed that the dark could be scary. Until that night. Now I know the truth, but it is shrouded with lies. Now I can see the world in color, but it is covered in shadows. Now, I must find the monster that killed my parents. And when I do, I will use my new powers to seek vengeance. A life for the lives that beast stole from me. I am no longer just Scarlett Night, the color-blind girl who dreams of flying.

Now, I am Nightfall—a fallen angel with a lust for blood. And I shall have my revenge.

This book started a new series and was by a new to me author. I like Scarlett and think that she is very tough lady but considering her parents I'm not surprised. The premise of this book intrigued me. It's so different than the books that are out now. This is not a romance book though there are elements of romance to it. I'd classify it as more of an urban fantasy. I am looking forward to reading more in this series and more by this authors. I don't always add authors to my must buy list very often but this one I'm adding. I was given this by the author for a fair and honest review.
