Blood Rule (Dirty Blood #4) by Heather Hildenbrand

Forty-six.
That’s how many hybrids survived the Hunter attack in the woods after I revived them with an injection of my blood. That’s how many followed me home to Frederick Falls. And that’s how many were now mentally linked to me through a blood bond.

Two days. Three valium. Fourteen hours of sleep.
That’s what it took to realize I wasn’t losing my mind as a result of the noise in my own head.

Sixteen.
That’s how many days have passed since I almost killed Alex. That’s how many days I’ve sat by his bedside, waiting for him to wake up. To ease the guilt, to understand his betrayal, to remember the exact shade of brown in his eyes.

Zero.
That’s my chances of skating by with Gordon Steppe and the Hunter Council. They want me for questioning. I’m afraid what’ll happen if I give them answers.

My Review:

Just when I thought this series out done with surprises, Heather goes and throws another wrench into the mix.  This series has had so many twists & turns throughout it that I'm not even surprised when we're "surprised" once again.  I have been hooked from the beginning and I can't even imagine what can be in store for Tara next.  Looking forward to book 5!!!


Blood Bond (Dirty Blood #3) by Heather Hildenbrand

Hybrids.

If I had to choose one word to sum up all of my problems, this would be it.
Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to watch my best friend slowly becoming a monster. Without hybrids, I could let go of the mentality “hunt or be hunted.” CHAS wouldn’t be scouring the Earth, intent on slaughtering and using Alex to do it. Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to be on guard that losing my temper meant losing my shape. There would be no monster inside me, struggling to get out.

Then again, without hybrids, I wouldn’t have Wesley St. John.
 


My Review:

This series just keeps getting better with each book!!!  There is so many twists and turns in these books you don't know if you're coming or going LOL  The characters are awesome and the story is so well written that I am itching to read more.  I didn't want the book to end as I was sucked into this world, luckily I had book 4 waiting for me :)



The Painted Maidens by Terra Harmony





Seventeen-year-old Serena is the youngest member of a dying race. The increasing acidity of the ocean is destroying her home, slowly eating away at the once thriving underwater landscape. But since the night of Serena’s birth, it is an outside force that most threatens their dwindling population. Werewolves, who once served as protectors for mermaids in the Kingdom of the Undine, now seek to eliminate all who dwell in the ocean — and Serena is about to find herself right in the middle of the deadly conflict.

Given the title of Werewolf Liaison, Serena is determined to make things right for her people. When she ventures to The Dry, she meets Liam, the werewolf with hazel eyes, and her whole world gets turned upside down. As Serena discovers the real history between werewolves and mermaids, she is left wondering who her true enemies are.

My Review:

I have never read a book where there was a combination of mermaids with werewolves and let me tell you that the story was awesome!! 

Serena is an orphan that doesn’t want get involved in the politics of things but being the freespirited mermaid that she is, she ends up in trouble and having to work with the werewolves in the Dry (land).  Throughout the story you see Serna struggle with accepting the job that she was given as Wolf Liason and having to build relationships with the werewolves. 

Terra does a fantastic job at combining both worlds together and making one fantastic story!  The characters are well written and everything is described perfectly (so much so that you can picture every detail).  The relationships amongst everyone is perfectly told and you find yourself either loving them or hating them (I absolutely love Kai ;) )


I highly recommend this book if you love reading about mermaids or werewolves…you will not be disappointed!


Two separate worlds; the Undine of the Deep and the Wolves of the Dry. A history muddled in war but thick with family bonds blur the lines of right and wrong. The youngest members of each race unite, trying to steer their people away from the brink of disaster. Serena and Liam must work together to resolve the problems of their people before the pressure tears these twin siblings apart. But the betrayed are angry, and are out for revenge.

My Review:

This is the second book of the trilogy and picks up shortly after the first one ends.  In this installment you find Serena adjusting to her role as Queen of the Undine and trying to find a way to avoid having to give herself over to the werewolves.  Liam (her twin) is trying his best to stop that from happening.  Serena and Liam are still battling with Aleric and his followers who are trying to hold Serena to the very old agreement that was made when she born.   You also find Kai and Serena's relationship growing and their "problems" of trying to hide it from everyone :)


This story was just as a good as the first one and there was definitely much more to get sucked into J  I am very excited to finish up the last one.


Eighteen-year-old Serena now reigns as queen of both the Undine of The Deep and the wolves of The Dry. The alliance between her maidens and the werewolves is shaky when all at once the basic necessities of food and shelter are taken away and both their worlds fall apart. After decades of war, the two societies must work together if they want to survive what lies ahead. A promised land is theirs for the taking, but first, they must survive each other.




REVIEW:  to be added later as I'm still in the middle of the book :)

The Painted Maidens Playlist

I had so much fun throughout the creation of The Painted Maidens Trilogy, and music was a big part of that. I don't listen to music while I am writing (too distracting), but I love to listen as I am driving or running, which is really my time to brainstorm. There are five songs that really set the mood of either the entire trilogy or a specific scene or character.  Take a listen:

Scene/Character: Beginning of the Maiden and Wolf Migration, 'The Taking, Book Three'
Song: Come with me now
Artist: Kongos
Link: (http://youtu.be/Gz2GVlQkn4Q)
Favorite verse:
"I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight."
Whoa, come with me now
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now."

Scene/Character: The King, 'The Rising, Book One'
Song: Pompeii
Artist: Bastille
Link: (http://youtu.be/F90Cw4l-8NY)
Favorite verse:
"Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above."

Scene/Character: Serena (main character)
Song: Darkhorse
Artist: Katy Perry
Favorite Verse:
"So you want to play with magic?
Boy, you should know what you're falling for.
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause I'm coming at you
like a dark horse.

Burnt Devotion by Rebecca Ethington




Barnes & Nobles: http://bit.ly/157aTGB
Smashwords: http://bit.ly/1KZoDV6


Burnt Devotion, Book 5 in the Imdalind Series. Dawn of Ash - the previously announced book five has now been moved to book 6. Yes! An extra book. If you have been waiting for the next installment of The Imdalind Series this is the book you have been waiting for!

--

It was supposed to be the final battle, the one to end Edmund’s line, his life, and free the magic Edmund had taken from the world. That was how it was foreseen. The end of the battle that has raged for centuries, unbeknownst to the mortals around them, the battle that would end with Joclyn’s death.

But it did neither.

The battle still reigns, Joclyn still lives, and the sight that was given eight hundred years ago is broken.

And it’s not the only one.

Sights that were once thought infallible have become nothing more than scattered glass, with broken pieces shattering into incorrect visages. Sain clings to the magic that he knows to be true, but there is something else, something that he is not saying. And what he does say is no longer adding up.

Something is wrong.

Ilyan and his people move through the caves, following a sight they hope to be correct, fleeing a battle that should have been the end while the battle within each of them grows with each step.

Ryland fights the monsters his father has infected him with.

Wynifred fights the confusion of who she is.

Dramin fights to live.


Prague may not survive this battle, it may be ripped to shreds… or burned to ashes.

Forever Down Under by S.M. Phillips







In the last few months, Jess has been faced with more obstacles than she ever thought possible. Heartbreak, loss and betrayal to name just a few. Will her drama fuelled life finally settle into the happy, care free one that she deserves or is someone hiding and waiting for the perfect opportunity to ruin it all?

      Life for Max hasn't exactly been plain sailing either. Now that he finally has someone in his life that means more to him than anything he has ever known, one thing is for certain, he's not going to let anyone get in the way of his new found happiness, no matter what the cost.

Demons are released, pasts are exposed and their future together is only what they make of it. 



"I've got a few errands to run Angel, but I promise that I'll make it up to you later."


"You bet you will, Mister. How long will you be gone for anyway?" I ask, already missing him.

"I'll only be a few hours, tops. Hey, I was wondering if you wanted to go and see your mum? We could go tomorrow, or even later this afternoon?"

I'm hesitant for a moment before I gain enough strength to reply. "I'm not sure, Max." Uncertainty is evident in my tone, even though I'm trying my best to hide it. My chest feels heavy at the mere mention of my mum. I'd love nothing more than to go and see her, to wrap her in my arms and tell her that everything will be okay. I'd love to see that she's getting better, to let her know that even after everything that I'm still here for her, but I can't. She won't take my calls and down right refuses any visitors.

My only comfort right now is knowing that she's in the best place and receiving the best possible care, and it's all thanks to this devilishly kind and handsome man stood beside me. I'd refused any kind of offer from him previously, because the way I see it, she's my mum and I should be the one to make sure she has everything that she needs. I guess her stubborn gene runs prominently in my veins. I remember clearly in my mind the way Max looked at me, held me close and said, "Angel, please. Please allow me to do this one thing for you. Let me get her what she needs. I don't have a mum to look after anymore, Jess. I guess I never really have. All I ask is that you let me help you. I want to help you."

As much as my stubbornness and pride screamed out for me to say no, and as much as I wanted to say no, I couldn't do it. I suddenly found myself unable to say no to him and the pure, raw sadness that swam in his eyes had me aching for him, aching for his past and the demons that still currently haunt him to this day.
"Okay," I whispered. It was all I could manage, but for Max, it was enough. I just hope that one day I'll be able to tell him just how grateful I am.



Welcome to the crazy and hectic life that is me: A fun, loving mum of one special little boy, girlfriend (I'm sure it should be wife by now!!) and an overall crazy, happy go lucky girl from England.

I have always had a passion for reading and writing. Wherever I am, my eBook reader is never far behind, along with a mug of coffee.

I found myself wanting to write from a young age. I have quite a few hidden stories on my computer somewhere. Maybe I will have to dig them out and play around with them at some point.



DOWN UNDER #2

"Fuck." I slam my fist into the desk before me and feel nothing but rage. I need to go after her. I need to explain. "But isn't this what you wanted?" The voice inside my head whispers. "Isn't this a nice easy way out?"

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish those close to him. Sometimes it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all.

Finally after what felt like forever, Jess was getting a glimpse of control over her life again and allowed her defences to come crashing down, only to have what it guarded to be crushed once again. Now, on the other side of the world away from her friends, she doesn't know what to do.

Should she stay or should she go?

Is it too late or have they both fallen too far into something that is completely out of their depths?







DOWN UNDER #1

For Jess Townsend, life is about to get complicated.

Following on from her split with Josh two months ago, Jess has thrown herself into her work full throttle, making sure that the one good thing in her life remains the same.

Suddenly she is called into an important meeting at work. Absolutely petrified that she is about to lose her job, she does the only thing she knows how. Panic on the inside and walk through it with her head held high on the outside.

Jess soon discovers she is being offered a once in a lifetime opportunity, but will she take it?

After dealing with an ex who can't let go and a broody mysterious Adonis who won't accept no for an answer, maybe the opportunity of an escape has arrived at the perfect time.

What does fate have in store and what obstacles will be thrown her way?






OBSESSION #1

Obsession knows no bounds...

Anna Jameson can't wait to escape the hellhole that her cousin has left her in. Desperate to escape her past, the idea of moving to stay with Holly whilst she got her head together sounded like the perfect plan... Until Holly upped and left, leaving Anna to pick up the mess that she left behind.

Jensen Blake knows what he wants and will not be told otherwise. Obedience and control are what he knows best. With demons of his own, he has spent most of his adult life traveling from place to place the moment things started to become predictable.

When Jensen and Anna are pushed together, an instant dislike simmers between them. Anna hates bad boys. She has witnessed enough of them to last her a lifetime.

The sexual attraction between them is evident but will that only make things harder for them both to handle?
