Lucian Bane’s inner Dom is out of control and hungry for things he can’t name. When he signs up for Dom Wars, he meets Tara who is naive to the BDSM world. Her reckless dominance and puritan heart fascinate him. But when he discovers the pain in her past, it unleashes his true Dom within.


Lucian and Tara make it to round two in the DOM WARS. The challenges now revolve around trust, and while Tara's inhibitions in the world of BDSM are slowly being crushed by Lucian's passion, her deep rooted fears become the real obstacle he must dominate.

Official Blurb:

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they imagined. Now Myst, the Vampiric Fae Queen of the Indigo Court, has enough power to begin a long prophesied supernatural war. And Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, may be the only one who can stop her-and save her beloved Fae prince from the Queen's enslavement.

Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, has returned home to New Forest, Washington, after learning that her family is in danger. The Indigo Court holds the city in fear. People are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. And when she is swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover.

But Greive has been enslaved in Myst's court, and now, caught betwen two evils, the lovers must survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae queen, even as Cicely untangles the hidden secrets to her own heritage.

Review

When I signed up for the Night’s End blog tour, I had no idea what I was in store for with the Indigo Court series by Yasmine Galenorn. I haven’t read Yasmine’s previous works, but I had heard great things about her series. This blog tour was the perfect way to introduce myself to a new story and a new author.

Cicely is a magic born who’s lived nearly her entire life on the run with her mother. She was never raised to control her magically gift of wind. When fate lands her back in her hometown, she instantly realizes it’s not the way she left it. Dark, evil magic is thick within in the air. Her family, friends, and townspeople are suddenly disappearing and Cicely has inherited the task of finding what exactly is lurking in the woods. When she sees Grieve, Cicely’s first and only love, for the first time, he is not as she remembers. He’s been changed by the very evilness that is harming her town. She cannot keep her hands off of him, but can she trust him with the secret that she’s aligned against him in the war to come?

Night Myst is an exciting yet steamy story. Galenorn’s ability to create such an imaginative and strikingly beautiful world is simple above the bar. She takes such an unprecedented twist to the vampire lore that we all have grown accustomed to. There’s such a depth to the types of vampires and fae in the Indigo Court world that I cannot even begin to explain it. The love scenes in this book are so sexy and steamy. The layout and the perfect timing of the love scenes perfectly balances the stories action and adventure core values. The plot was perfectly paced. When you turn the last page of Night Myst, you will immediately want to start Night Veil and forgot about anything else on your to do list.

All three Bestselling, Top-Rated Books from The Needing Moore Trilogy by USA Today Bestseller Julie A. Richman, PLUS never before seen BONUS CHAPTERS for each book.


SEARCHING FOR MOORE – Book 1


I lost the love of my life when she disappeared without even a goodbye.


It was the 80’s – there was no internet, no Google, no cell phones.


If you wanted to disappear, you could.


And she did.


She crushed my soul.


A friend just told me he saw her on Facebook.


And now I’m a keystroke away from asking her the question that’s haunted me for two decades.


“Why did you leave me?”


Two decades after she broke his heart, sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore uncovers the truth and betrayal his life has been built on when he Facebook friend requests college love, Mia Silver. Determined to win Mia’s love once again, Schooner embarks on a life-altering journey that could cost him everything.


MOORE TO LOSE – Book 2


Continuing the fight for their happily ever after that began in Searching for Moore, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver struggle to overcome the ghosts and baggage they accumulated during their time apart.


Exploring the missing 24 years when they were separated, Moore to Lose follows Mia's journey from heartbroken teen to kickass businesswoman to her emotional reunion with Schooner and the exploration of the love that was ripped from them.


But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?


MOORE THAN FOREVER – Book 3


"You have no idea of what you do to me, Baby Girl."


"It's smoochal."


Is the love they always dreamed of enough?


Continuing the emotional journey of love and betrayal that began on a college campus in Searching for Moore and turned their worlds upside down in Moore to Lose, handsome, California entrepreneur Schooner Moore and sharp and sassy, New York advertising agency owner Mia Silver continue to be confronted with the harsh reality of the remnants from the lives they lived apart for 24 years.


Now, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver face the ultimate challenge - were they really meant to be together or will their pasts continue to tear them apart?


On the heels of the birth of their newborn son, Nathaniel, Schooner and Mia must decide if their love and loyalty to one another is strong enough to learn to grow together as a couple or if the life they always dreamed of sharing was better left as a teenage fantasy.

Excerpt


Moore To Lose by Julie A Richman (Book Two: Needing Moore Series


Damn, this woman could bring him to his knees. There they were - both standing there, naked. Vulnerable. The truth was finally out. And if he was standing there high on the edge of a  cliff, he wasn't standing there alone anymore. Mia had joined him. She was as bold and fearless as she'd always been. This was the Mia Silver with whom he had fallen hopelessly in love.


          "We're going to be ok, Mia," he reassured her. He wasn't going to allow himself to believe anything else. He could picture her shaking her head yes on the other end of the phone as he heard her trying to hide her tears. He pictured gently wiping them away with his thumb.


       "You promise, Schooner?"


          And as always with Mia, making a promise was so damn easy. "I promise, Baby Girl."

Review: Before Midnight by Jennifer Blackstream



Published: 7/1/2013
Series: Blood Prince #1
Rating: 3 stars
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18080255-before-midnight

Official Blurb:

Loupe always dreamed of getting married. She yearned for a caring husband who would take her away from her servant-like existence at home with her stepmother and two stepsisters, a man who would love her forever. Those dreams ended the day she was bitten by a werewolf. Now she’s a mindless beast on the night of the full moon—a condition that forever prevents her from sharing a marriage bed. Not even the attentions of a handsome and endearingly strong prince can convince her that the life she wants is still possible.

Etienne is a prince in need of a werewolf. A werewolf himself from birth, Etienne and his family have protected their kingdom with tooth and claw—literally—for thousands of years. Unfortunately, the spell of a well-meaning witch is slowly turning him human. Only the bite of a cursed werewolf, one who was not born with the beast inside, can save him from becoming human. He has no time for anything that will not lead him to a cure for the cure.

Not even the beautiful maiden whose gentle nature soothes his soul can take his mind from his goal.

Love cares little for the best laid plans or the impossible. A grand ball. The stroke of twelve. A magic “slipper.” All kinds of things can happen when you don’t leave the ball…Before Midnight

Review: Taking Back Sunday By Cristy Rey Blog Tour


 
Title: Taking Back Sunday (Incarnate Book One)

Author: Cristy Rey

Genre: Supernatural Suspense/ Paranormal Romance

Publication Date: March 11, 2014




After five years on the run, Sunday has finally settled into a seemingly normal life in Columbia, South Carolina. What her two best friends don’t know is that Sunday has a secret past. She is the Incarnate, a conduit of mystical energy transcendent of the mundane and the divine. For most of her life, she served under Bernadette, the most powerful witch in the Northwest. Her power is terrifying, and what she remembers of her past—and what she doesn’t—haunts her. In the year that she’s been attempting to be anything but the Incarnate, Sunday has fought her abilities tooth and nail, but it’s been worth it. When Sunday joins her friends’ coven for an innocent gathering, Sunday discovers a darkness hidden beneath the blanket of the coven’s magic and she is determined to find out who is behind it and what she has planned.

For the last four years, Cyrus has been the point man on the contract to recapture the Incarnate and deliver her to the Pastophori of Iset. A gifted tracker and a fearless werewolf, he harbors a wild, inexplicable passion for the Incarnate that has driven him to hunt her. He was one of the original captors that brought her to Bernadette when his obsession with her began. Having found her, Cyrus and his pack find themselves torn between two objectives: take her by force and deliver her to yet another group of fanatics, or help her uncover the traitor among her coven.
 






Taking Back Sunday follows Sunday, the Incarnate. Sunday’s ability makes her a living embodiment of a god as she is the body in which all powers can be drawn. . After years of torture and abuse masqueraded as training from her mentor Bernadette, Sunday has been on the move, never staying in one place too long and always looking over her shoulder. When she does finally settle in loosely plant roots, Sunday finds that she can live a somewhat normal life with her two best friends, her first friends in her entire life. Its not only when her troubled past comes marching into town.


Enter Cyrus, the werewolf, who not only played a part in her original retrieval, but is now her primary tracker since her escape. Cyrus has also had fits of rage in her presence and wants the duty of bringing her back to her master. But, this time is different for Cyrus, because as soon as he sets his eyes on her for the first time in many years, he knows what his deeply seeded hatred for her has really meant. He’ll now stop at nothing to protect her even when black magic strikes those close to her. He wants Sunday and if helping her solve this mysterious will bring her into his life, he’ll do it.


Taking Back Sunday is a fast-paced, thrilling urban fantasy series debut novel. This beautiful book pulled me in from the very first word and wouldn’t let me go until the last chapter was finished. Its unconventional twists and characters to the normal stories of the paranormal world are masterfully crafter.  Sunday’s character development rivals other UF novels. She’s portrayed at first as bratty runaway, but she grows into her role and powers to be used to save those she cares about. She wants and deserves normalcy in her troubled life. The cliffhanger ending to this novel left me not only in tears but enraged. I am GREATLY awaiting the next book in this marvelous new series!

Cristy Rey lives in Miami, FL. She is a reader and writer most of the time, and a knitter much less of the time than she was six months before she took up writing again.

Cristy writes the books that she likes to read. Her women are strong and out-spoken (most of the time), and her men run the gamut. Love stories abound in Cristy's work because, really, aren't love stories the best? Her stories also touch upon themes of identity, intimacy, family, and social issues. There's always a killer soundtrack running in the background of her novels - all you need to do is turn to the playlist to know what's up.

If you met Cristy, you’d probably tell her that she’s tall since people seem to think that she needs to become aware of said fact. She and her friends get together to drink tea, eat scones, and talk about Sherlock—they sometimes pretend they’re a book club but that’s just their excuse to get together
