Weekend Book Club--Caged Magic by Jennifer Lyon

It's been three years since Jennifer Lyon's last Wing Slayer Hunter novel, but it was worth the wait. CAGED MAGIC continues this unique paranormal series. Trust is hard won and the fight between good and evil is never as easy and clear-cut as it seems.

Both the hero and heroine are wounded souls with secrets that threaten their lives and their love. A wonderful edition to the Wing Slayer series.


Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.

Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.

But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.

Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon)

NIGHT PLAY by Sherrilyn Kenyon is my pick for Throwback Thursday this week.

I absolutely love this book. This is romance at its very best. Vane Kattalakis is one of my favorite romance heroes of all time. He's been wounded in so many ways and doesn't believe he's worthy of Bride's love but, believe me, he is. Both Bride and Vane are complex people who have been hurt in the past. But love does have the power to heal. There are also moments of humor in this book. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll swoon. 

If you love paranormal romance and haven't tried this book, you are truly missing out on something special.


Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor.

She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur...

Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered--something no self-respecting wolf can accept...

But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.

Great review for Lure of the Jaguar from Fresh Fiction

LURE OF THE JAGUAR has received an amazing review from FRESH FICTION.

"LURE OF THE JAGUAR is truly hypnotic!...I hate to see the end of the Hades Carnival series, and was thrilled when author N.J. Walters took pity on her readers and gave us all seven of the warriors' stories....LURE OF THE JAGUAR is the perfect end to a really great series." ~Annetta Sweetko

Weekend Book Club--Burned by Darkness by Alexandra Ivy

BURNED BY DARKNESS is the first book in Alexandra Ivy's new Dragon's of Eternity series. There is plenty of action and a sexy, stubborn dragon who has set his mind on claiming the the one woman who got away. Danger lurks from several different sources. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your point of view, they have help in the form of everyone's favorite gargoyle, Levet. If your familiar with Ivy's Guardian's of Eternity series, then you know and love Levet.

This is a fantastic start for the Dragon's of Eternity. I can't wait for the next book in this exciting new series.


The Dragons of Eternity were once creatures of mist and legend. Now they’ve returned to the world, prepared to claim what’s rightfully theirs…

Tayla is desperate for a place to call home. After years on the run, the young imp impulsively buys a teahouse and is determined to build a new life. Unfortunately, she’s barely opened the doors when she’s tracked down by the dragon who purchased her from troll slave-traders. He demands she pay off her debts…in his harem.

Baine has devoted a quarter of a century to tracking down his beautiful concubine. And now that he has her in his grasp, he’s not about to let her go. But it’s soon apparent that he isn’t the only demon hunting her. He must uncover her secrets or risk losing her forever.

Lure of the Jaguar Available Today!

Lure of the Jaguar is finally here. This is the final story in the Hades' Carnival series. I've loved writing all these books and am sorry to see the series end, but it's time. Hope you all enjoy Stavros's book. 

Lure of the Jaguar

Hades has one last trick up his sleeve...and this cat is running out of lives.

Hades’ Carnival, Book 7

The curse that imprisoned the Lady of the Beasts’ warriors is broken. Their mates are safe from Hades, but not their human friends. As the only unmated warrior, Stavros retreats to the Louisiana bayou. Better to be alone than put anyone else in danger.

Then he senses a presence in his woods. It’s a woman stalking wildlife with her camera, a woman who has unwittingly put herself on Hades’ radar—for she is Stavros’ mate.

Wildlife photographer Toni Richards doesn’t need any man to be her hero. But when three suspicious men try to kidnap her, she’s shocked when the rare jaguar she’s been tracking leaps to her rescue—then morphs into a man. An incredibly sexy man with a jaguar tattoo snarling across his back.

Despite his better judgment, Stavros can’t keep his distance, even though he knows that when the time comes, much will have to be sacrificed to foil Hades’ plans. Stavros prays Toni will forgive him for what he must do to protect her soul.

Warning: A shapeshifting warrior, an intrepid photographer, and a vengeful god generate enough heat in the bayou to send the entire state up in flames.

Wolf in her Bed now available in Paperback

WOLF IN HER BED is now available in PRINT from Samhain Publishing! This is the second book in the Salvation Pack series.


Is he Prince Charming or the Big Bad Wolf?

Anny Conrad is a single thirty-year-old librarian—a cliché complete with two cats. Dragged out to a local bar, she’s rethinking her life plan over a few drinks when a man walks up and asks her to dance. And what a man. Tall, rugged and more than a little untamed. Before she knows it, she’s in his arms and throwing caution to the wind.

With a pack war in full, deadly swing, the last thing Armand LaForge needs right now is a woman in his life, much less a human. But one thing is certain, he’s met his mate, the one woman in the world for him.

The kindest thing to do is give her all the hot sex she wants and then leave her alone. But when the morning comes, fate isn’t done screwing with them. Anny is confronted with the fact that the myths in her library books are real…and now she’s one of them.
