Immortal Blood by Magen McMinimy is a fun read! It reminds me a bit of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, and I am a huge fan of her, so it's no surprise that I enjoyed this book.

Meet Izzy. She is a successful woman, providing for herself quite nicely. She owns her own home and a shiny, silver Audi (fun!). She goes on a date with Mystery Man, Zander, and it takes a turn for the worst.

Enter Bain. Bain is a Fae Warrior, and Immortal Brother, sworn to protect the human race from the Dark F

The twists and turns of this book, will keep you on your toes! This is one of the few books this year that is paranormal in nature, yet it isn’t about vampires or shape shifters!! It was for sure a nice change. During this book, you learn about the angels, and of course the leprechauns.

One thing that I did enjoy about this book completely was how Magen created this world that showed fairy tales to be true. There are the different types, the good and the bad, and the different “levels” of the l

Oh jeez, what do I say about this book. It was one of those that I had to put down to make sure that I let everything soak in, but at the same time I didn't want to set it down for fear of forgetting what was happening. It's a different take on a paranormal book, one that can easily capture the reader's attention.

Bain is an immortal brother who does what he's told for his missions but doesn't listen to anyone when it comes to his personal life. He uses his good looks to bed any woman that he wan

It is such a nice thing to see authors promoting the works of other authors. Two that I see doing it the most on Facebook are Alexia Purdy and Laura Wright. I’m not sure who it was, but one of the many authors I follow on social media alerted me to the works of Magen McMinimy – and I can’t thank them enough.

I decided to take a chance and check out the first in McMinimy’s Immortal Heart series – Immortal Blood. I was so pleasantly surprised by what I discovered within the pages that I can’t stop

Wow! I have to say this was an awesome story. One of the most unique in lore I have ever read, and was a refreshing change from the commonly used creature types found in paranormal romance. Ms. McMinimy is an expert storyteller who does a wonderful job of building the romantic tension throughout the whole story, while still building an incredible plotline independent of just the romance. I especially loved the ties and relationships that each of the main characters had with their families (and e ...more

I received a copy of Immortal Blood from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit that by title alone and never seeing the cover or reading a blurb, I expected this to be about vampires. Although there is mention of vampires, the story is not about them.

I was just on the phone telling my Aunt about this book. I believe what I told her would make a great review. After I read her the blurb, I said "This book has it all... family bonds, adventure, Light and Dark Fae, romance, a

I downloaded this book because it was free and from the title I assumed it was about vampires, it's not it's about the Fae and I'm not sure why but I've never been particularly fond of Fae books. By the time I started reading I'd forgotten it wasn't vampires and by the time I realised I was hooked, this is a really good read, it has some good characters and the story is interesting and the romance slow building. So all in all a good read and I'll be checking out the next book.

I loved this book. It's fresh, different (in a positive way) and funny as hell.

Izzy doesn't really date and the one time that she decides to go on a date and have some fun is when one of the Dark Fae (a good luck eater) named Zander. It's nearly to late but Izzy is saved by the Light Fae as they are chasing Xander. Bain (so swoon worthy) and Uriah. This is where Izzy starts to have accidents and needs their help but she is stubborn. Magen has created a unique and beautiful world with in depth c

Great read

Having read the short story prequel to this series in the Stalkers anthology, I was anxious to see just how the brothers would take care of the leprechaun problem. Having already read Immortal Promise because I'm an idiot and read series out of order, I needed to see how the Fae got to where they are in the third book. I loved this story and the introduction to the Fae world. It has helped me greatly to understand more of what's going on in the third book because it explains all the th

I just finished reading Immortal Blood, the first book by Magen McMinimy in the Immortal Heart series and I can say I will be getting all of them.

McMinimy has created and original take on the Fae and the world they live in. They are amazing and different and spectacular. Talk about getting hot and bothered about paranormals... you definitely will. The passion between Izzy and Bain is undeniable. It is deep and hot. I was completely invested in this book and everything about this world.

I loved it. Izzy was spunky and had a lot of fire. Bain was arrogant, but had his sweeter moments. Personally, I can’t wait for more Kale. There is just something about Zander. I want more of him too. I almost felt bad for him in the beginning. By the end I was hoping he would actually do something to redeem himself.
Magen has a different take on the fae, but I loved that. It’s definitely a fast fun read that will leave you wanting more. I’m going to have to read the next as soon as I get a litt

This book was free on Amazon, I saw the amazing reviews, remembered a friend rave about it and I decided to read it. And that decision triggered a headache due to much eye-rolling. But, as I was taught that books are teachers and that we learn at least one precious lesson from each one, here's three things I've learned from this book:

OMG I loved this story, perfect paranormal romance. This book centres around Izzy and Bain, an immortal warrior who protects Izzy but ends up falling in love. It's an unlikely match but amazing nether less. This book had a great story and great plot, love, romance, angst, deceit and family drama. Great characters make for a 'can't put it down read' which grips you from the start. Would recommend and can't wait for the next in this series.

I have to admit the story turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. Nothing for little teenager girls and I like that. What I totally enjoyed about Magen's style of writing is her type of humor and that she does not explain TOO much about a scene so that you can fantasize a bit yourself. Totally worth a reading, I can't wait to read the 2nd book :)

What a fab story.
Bain and Izzy are excellent characters and I loved how they met through Zander trying to steal Izzy's luck!
An then to follow them on their journey of trying to get Izzy's luck back and to finding their way back to each other and their love for one another!

This is a really good paranormal romance that has a HOT angel warrior with fangs & different worlds that the paranormal live on. It has lots of action, a bad guy who is a leprechaun that sucks luck from humans, a feisty heroine that loves her fat cat & can't cook, a snobby paranormal mother who tries to interfere, and of course a romance that builds slowly throughout the first half of the book!

There are a couple of sex scenes, but they aren't too descriptive or long. Just enough to make

Fairies with healing powers, definitely cool. Fairies with red velvet bed covers? A little creepy. A bunch of grammar/spelling mistakes in my nook formatted version. I did really like how Izzy put up a real fight when the dude tried to walk away from the relationship. Author pulls a rabbit named Darnell out of a hat and everybody lives happy ever after.

Annoying Chauvinism:

"no one ever talked to Bain like that...especially a female"

It is very interesting and it a different take on Fae’s. I love supernatural books, but this one was the best I’ve read this year. I love how the author writes her books. Very unique.

I will start by saying that I am not always a fan of books about the Fae. But so far I have always been a fan of books by Magen McMinimy (I have read several books from her Half Blood Princess series). And this time was not different.

One of the things I really liked about this book was the unique twist this author has on the Fae. I really don’t think I have read any other books that have quite this version of their culture. And I really enjoyed it.

Immortal Blood is the story of Bain, a Fey warrior, and Izzy, a lucky event planner, who meet under less than desirable circumstances. When her luck is stolen by the leprechaun Zander, Izzy is forced to rely on Bain’s protection. As life in the human world becomes more and more dangerous, Bain takes Izzy to the Fey world; this was the point where the story really picked up for me because of the love story and the supporting cast. I’m not going to give away spoilers, but the black

Every girl has that one date that is too good to be true. And for Isabelle, or Izzy, as she is called, he goes by the name Zander. Zander is sexy and charming and apparently a very very naughty leprechaun. He has a habit of stealing luck from unsuspecting women who are successful like our girl Izzy. But Zander isn't aware that he isn't going to be able to completely cash in because two Immortals are hot on his heels. So before he can steal all of Izzy's luck he is stopped by Bain & his broth ...more

Zander is a luck eating leprechaun who has stolen Izzy’s luck and Bain must protect Izzy while trying to capture Zander and force him to give Izzy back her luck. Bain takes Izzy back to his world where he can protect her but Bain’s mother Lady Esperanza dislike Izzy from the first moment they meet. ...more

Another surprisingly good freebie that's been 'collecting dust' in my ebook shelves. This was really good and I totally enjoyed reading this. The characters were dynamic and I really liked all of them. There was humor, emotions, great creativity and imagination, some twists and turns, and a super good HEA. This was a good read and one you'd want to curl up and dig into. Totally Enjoy!

Isabelle has been busy too building a career to really look for love, but when her sister pushes someone at little does she know that one date will change everything for her, espically after her date is attacked and the attackers say they are there to save her.

Bain has always been a womanizer, and has never met a woman who tells him no, until Izzy. She's a spitfire with a curvy body any man would go crazy over, but the more time he spends with her the more he begins to feel for her.

So far, it's not bad. It clearly could use an editor, but it's certainly not the worst thing I've ever read. There's some awkward language and typos. But overall the story is intriguing, although there were a few romance novel tropes that made me roll my eyes - strange man pushes his way into your house and refuses to leave? Order pizza and watch Real Housewives together!

I like the heroine so far. It's not to see a woman of c

“I knew you’d come around” Bain mused.
“Excuse me?” Izzy asked irritated by his smug tone, but she had been totally checking him out.
“You see something you like sweetheart, I can tell.” He smirked.
“You are incredibly arrogant” she accused.
