The Watcher Series Vol. 3
Rhiannon Jean
dividers synopsis 1-432x132

I'm smack dab in the middle of my divorce and falling for another man-when my ex husband texts me.
This other man I've fallen for is pale, sexy, and just this side of dangerous.
My writer's mojo had finally begun to come back and my life is taking a turn for the better.
Until I find the present he left me on my table.
After fighting with Gabriel, yet again, about his secrecy, Lily decides she needs to prove something to herself. That she's strong. That she's independent. That she's wanted. But is her independence and strength enough to say no to Ryan and survive the truth about who and what Gabriel is?

“I want to know you, Gabriel. All of you...even the not so shiny parts,” I said.
“I’ll show you my not so shiny parts if you show me yours,” he grinned almost boyishly.
“Oh jeez,” I snorted. “You’re such a brat!” Giggling, I pulled him closer and talked into his shoulder. “Tomorrow night, let’s just have a normal stay at home date. No heavy talk, no talk of our pasts. Let’s rent a movie, order in, and relax. I think we could both use that.”
“Sounds like heaven,” he replied with a sigh. He kissed me on the forehead and made sure I got into my apartment and locked the door. Once inside I flipped on the light and leaned my back against the door. I took a deep breath and looked around my new place. That’s when I noticed something on my dining room table. It looked to be a figurine of some sort. I wondered if Ryan had stopped by at some point and was still trying to butter me up. I walked over to the table to get a closer look and a scream caught in my throat.

Phoenix Awakens by Eliza Nolan
Release Date: 10/12/15

Summary from Goodreads:
Paranormal debut about a high school senior who finds herself in a fight with a secret society for control of ancient magic.

Julia never believed in magic.

Julia Long is starting her senior year with an extra dose of crazy. The dreams of cultish, bloody rituals are weird enough, but the victim in her lifelike dreams is her new classmate, Southern charmer Graham.

Graham admits he was part of the Phoenixes — a centuries old secret society — but swears he left it all behind. As Julia works with Graham to figure out why she is dreaming about his past, she's discovering she has other abilities. She heals Graham’s migraines with a touch, and there’s her superhuman strength that comes and goes. Julia doesn’t know where her new talents come from, but there’s no denying that when Graham is near, her powers kick into overdrive.

But the Phoenixes want Graham back. They need his blood to awaken the magic they seek, and they'll do whatever it takes to get it.

In a mundane world where magic does not exist, Julia is the only one with a shot at stopping them. Will Julia learn to control her new abilities in time to stop the Phoenixes from harnessing this powerful magic?

{Top 5 Reasons} Truth or Bears by Penny Reid

 Is a feature where I pick a title and give you five reason why you should read this book. Hopefully it will be something to help with recommendations.

I'm a big fan of men who are not only alpha males but also men who don't care about getting dirty. Truth or Beard follows a group of six brothers and their handsome rugged bearded selves. The first in the series focus on Duane and his crush Jessica, but to add a little twist Duane as a twin brother that makes a mess of things for Jessica.

Add it to your TBR list: Goodreads

1: The Humor

I'm always on the hunt for humor, Penny Reid has a talent for humor and spunk in her characters. She creates hilarious awkward moments between the two leads as well as some great brotherly conversations between the six Winston Brothers.

2: Romance... Is that you or your brother?

The romance starts out with a crush, Jessica is crushing on Beau who she thinks of as her hero, while secretly his twin whom she thinks is moody is crushing on her. Its a fun dynamic and Duane is not a man to give up hope that Jessica can see past their past and see that he's the guy for her.

3: Brotherly Love!

My main love for this book was all the brothers, each are so very different, whether its good or bad, they stick together and support each other. Yes, there is one bad apple, but he has his reason and I cant wait to read his story.

4: Motorcycle Club

Soooo, I love my boys on bikes too. But these ones arent the tall, dark and sexy ones I normally go for. Nope these guys are trouble and major trouble for the brothers and their auto shop. I'm super curious as to what more choas they might bring to the family especially with the one bad apple brother.

5: More to Come

Whats great about this book is that this is only the beginning! There are six brothers, so Im rooting for six books. Plus the Winston brothers were introduced in Reids other series Knitting in the city, so you can expect a lot more from this brood!

Summary from Goodreads:
Twenty-year-old Ward de’Ath expected this to be a simple job—bring a nobleman’s daughter back from the dead for fifteen minutes, let her family say good-bye, and launch his fledgling career as a necromancer. Goddess knows he can’t be a surgeon—the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying—so bringing people back from the dead it is.

But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that she’s been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward can’t bring himself to break his damned physician’s Oath and desert her.

However, nothing is as it seems—including Celia. One second, she’s treating Ward like sewage, the next she’s kissing him. And for a nobleman’s daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive…

Summary from Goodreads:
The last thing Ward de'Ath wants is more trouble. On the run from both the law and the criminal underworld, Ward and Celia flee Brawenal City only to stumble into the mansion of a powerful evil necromancer. And when Ward discovers the man possesses a dangerous grimoire, his duty leaves him no choice. He can't allow the necromancer to keep the grimoire.

But the mansion is filled with monsters--human and undead--and Ward has no way of telling who's friend or foe. The only person he can trust is Celia who dominates more of his thoughts and feelings everyday. But there are still laws in the way of anything but friendship. She's still dead and he's still alive . . . for now.

Release Date: 01/19/14
Entangled Teen
276 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
Ward de'Ath should be dead by now. Instead, he’s chasing after a soul-eating creature—that he unleashed— and is bent on stopping her before she slaughters more innocents. Fortunately, Celia Carlyle remains by his side, a nobleman's gorgeous and deadly daughter, who is…well, dead.

Celia claims she’ll champion Ward wherever he goes, even when she thinks his quest is hopeless. He can only hope her pledge comes from her heart, and not because she’s bound to him through his magic.

When they enter Dulthyne, they stumble upon a dark power that threatens the entire town. Ward, with his unreliable necromancy, is determined to help but finds himself ensnared in the lure of white-hot magic…blood magic he struggles to resist. But if Celia’s love is a lie, it might just doom his soul to the dark arts forever. 

About the Author
I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.

I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} of Midnight Fire by Lisa Marie Rice

Midnight Fire by Lisa Marie Rice
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Romance
THEME: Suspense, Political, Mystery


Jack Delvaux is alive
Summer Redding thought the blindingly handsome jock who'd loved and left her years ago had died in the Washington Massacre. She grieved for her lost golden boy as the rest of the country mourned their dead—until she comes home to find a very alive Jack Delvaux waiting for her with a devastating secret that turns her life upside down.
No longer the carefree man he was in his youth, this Jack is dark, hard and dangerous; a fifteen-year veteran of the CIA hungry for answers…and hungry for her. The rich, good-looking charmer who broke her heart once before would have been easy to resist, but this man, this powerful man? Summer needs him, and he knows it.
When Jack's mission uncovers evidence of government involvement in the Massacre—and plans for another attack—he's primed for revenge. But he has more than vengeance to live for now, and when Summer's life is threatened, it's nearly Jack's undoing. Someone taking shots at his woman? That's a dead man walking.


Midnight Fire is the 4th installment of the Men of Midnight series. For me this is the first introduction, it was a mix of Jack Ryan action and suspense with bit of Mulder and Scully conspiracy without the aliens. I loved the fast paced action and non stop mystery, the writing was fresh and kept me hooked at every page. Even though this was the 4th book in the series I wasn’t confused about what was going on, this can be easily read as a stand-alone.

Midnight Fire follows Summer Redding who while attending a funeral of a somewhat relative, notices a man with all too familiar eyes. Thos eyes belong to Jack Delvaux who was thought to have been killed with his family in a terrible massacre. Jack was the son of a well-known political man who was going to be president. Jack knows that Summer spotted him and with her conspiracy blogging catching readers eyes, he knows he has to talk with her before she post the latest. But once they meet Jack and Summer embark on the mystery that took his family away and made him go into hiding. Jack being for CIA means that someone deep within is after them, and now they have their eyes on Summer.

Summer is a tough and extremely smart young woman, she is also the one person who can help Jack figure out who planned the attack on his family and why. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to dig deep, as she already blogs about political subjects, she knows how to figure things out. Plus she wants to know what happened with Jack, they once had a connection and he isn’t the same man she was with years ago. I loved the banter and how they fed of information and solved piece by piece the bigger mystery.

Jack is a changed man, after the loss of his entire family but one of his sisters, he has gone deep underground to find out what happened. Former CIA he has connections to help him get into and out of places unnoticed, expect when he spot an old acquaintance, Summer. Jack is a tough, action man, but when it comes to Summer he know she was the good that he once left behind. He also has a major soft spot for protecting her and keeping her close. I loved their connection, is was hot and heavy but also sweet and passionate.

Overall this was a wonderfully written suspense novel with romance that will make any woman wish their were more Jack Delvaux’s in the world. Rice must of done some heavy research or watched some serious crime shows to create such an intense and well thought out conspiracy plot. I loved every twist, and oh my gosh moment that followed the two leads. Now I’ll I need to do is read the last three books because I’m officially hooked.
