Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh)

ANGELS' BLOOD is the first book in Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series. As much as I hate to have to do it, I have to admit that I was skeptical when I first picked up this book. I wasn't sure how the combination of vampires and archangels would work. All I can say is, "Wow!"

I absolutely love this series. Powerful characters and intricate plots will take you on a ride like no other. This book is action-packed and totally original. I've gobbled up every book in the series to date. Book 8--Archangel's Enigma--is due out September 1st, and I can't wait. 

If you're looking for a new paranormal series that you won't be able to put down, try the Guild Hunters.


Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she’s the best—but she doesn’t know if she’s good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option…even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…

Weekend Book Club--Sinful Rewards 12 by Cynthia Sax

All good things must come to an end and so it is for the Billionaires and Biker series by Cynthia Sax. We've followed the relationship between Bee Carter and the men in her life--Hawke and Nicolas--for eleven books and get the heartfelt conclusion in SINFUL REWARDS 12.

This series is smoking hot and erotic to the extreme, but at it's core it's all heart.


The thrilling conclusion to the Billionaires and Bikers series!

One tiny mistake turns Bee Carter's worst fears into a terrifying reality. She knows she isn't alone. The sexy, honorable man she adores stands by her side, willing to sacrifice his freedom to ease her concerns.

But she yearns for more than he is offering. She wants a partner who will love her as fiercely as she loves him, who will say the words and mean them, and someone who will choose her because this is what he desires more than anything else, not merely out of a misguided sense of duty.

Will saying no to the man she loves earn Bee unbearable heartache or will she finally get the forever she craves?

Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Blood Magic by Jennifer Lyon)

BLOOD MAGIC by Jennifer Lyon is my choice for Throwback Thursday this week. This is the first book in her Wing Slayer Hunter series. This is a fantastic paranormal series about witches, demons and powerful guardians.

There have been four novels and a novella released so far. It's been a while since there was a new one, but according to the author's website, book 5: Caged Magic is coming out this year, with more books planned. Good news for all of us who are fans of the series.

If you haven't tried Lyon's Wing Slayer Hunter series, it's a good time to start and catch up before the new book is released later this year.


In the days when powerful witches used their magic to shield humanity from demons, their allies and guardians were a group of men gifted with preternatural abilities of their own–the witch guardians. But when a band of witches traded their humanity for demonic power, the ancient bond was broken, and the guardians became the hunters.

Darcy MacAlister knows nothing of demons or magic. But this beautiful young woman is about to discover the truth about her past . . . and her future. For she is a witch–not just any witch, but the key to breaking the curse that has plagued witches and the men who hunt them. For if a hunter kills an innocent witch by mistake, the price is no less than a piece of his soul.

Axel Locke, gorgeous leader of the Wing Slayer Hunters, has sworn never to shed the blood of the earth witches who have resisted the temptation of demonic power. But when his sister is cursed by a demon witch, he discovers that Darcy MacAlister may hold the cure–if she can master her newfound powers in time. When the chase begins and Axel and Darcy come face-to-face, this hunter must weigh his soul against his honor–and against his heart.

5 Stars for Lure of the Jaguar

LURE OF THE JAGUAR doesn't release until July 14th, but it already has a 5 Star review from LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS.

"I like this world, slightly dark but always optimistic that good will triumph over evil in the end. The characters are well defined and well matched, and I like that there is a gathering of all the previous characters to put some closure to this series. Now that Ms. Walters has given each of the immortal warriors their own HEA, I look forward to settling back and enjoying these in order again and again.." ~Foxglove

Weekend Book Club--Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

This past week, I read SHARDS OF HOPE by Nalini Singh. This is the 14th book in her Psy/Changeling Series. Nalini Singh is fast becoming one of my favorite paranormal authors. I'm a huge fan of her Guild Hunter books, but have started reading her Psy/Changeling series as well.

As the world around them changes, both Aiden and Zaira must face new and deadly challenges that threaten them and everyone around them. Danger, action, and a love so deep and accepting it will bring tears to your eyes. Shards of Hope and the Psy/Changeling series is a must for any lover of paranormal romance.


Awakening wounded in a darkened cell, their psychic abilities blocked, Aden and Zaira know they must escape. But when the lethal soldiers break free from their mysterious prison, they find themselves in a harsh, inhospitable landscape far from civilization. Their only hope for survival is to make it to the hidden home of a predatory changeling pack that doesn’t welcome outsiders.

And they must survive. A shadowy enemy has put a target on the back of the Arrow squad, an enemy that cannot be permitted to succeed in its deadly campaign. Aden will cross any line to keep his people safe for this new future, where even an assassin might have hope of a life beyond blood and death and pain. Zaira has no such hope. She knows she’s too damaged to return from the abyss. Her driving goal is to protect Aden, protect the only person who has ever come back for her no matter what. This time, even Aden’s passionate determination may not be enough—because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason. For the violent, and the insane, and the irreparably broken…like Zaira.

5 Stars fro Flame of the Phoenix


"There is a sense with this book that N. J. Walters is bringing all of the warriors’ lives together, and sort of ‘tying up loose ends’ in this world. I do like this world, and enjoy seeing the characters as they interact and grow...I recommend this for all those who enjoy fantasy and immortal warriors with their romance." ~Foxglove
