She's thrown into a dangerous job, okay not thrown because it has really good pay and she was dead broke, more like dove in head first, with no idea how to do what she needs to in order to keep her area safe.
A Fistful of Evil was a really good start to the Illuminant Enforcer series. It was funny and although Madison does make some really bad decisions, she really is trying and she does learn something from them. I think with the proper training that she'd be really good at being an enforcer and I'm hoping to see her grow even more in the next book, A Fistful of Fire. Overall, it was a quick, imaginative read that left me eager to read the next one!

I loved Searching for Beautiful! I am completely new to this series, and it didn't look like something that I'd be into so I almost skipped over it. FI loved Searching for Beautiful! I am completely new to this series, and it didn't look like something that I'd be into so I almost skipped over it. Flipping through the pages I stopped at a random page in the middle and read a few lines and just happened to get to a good part *ahem*. It was really well written so I started reading and I am really glad that I did! It was such a wonderful story.
Genevieve (Gen) starts out this story by running out on her own wedding, and you have no idea exactly why she's running but you know that it's bad. Wolfe is her best friend and he catches her leaving and helps her to escape. There was so much to this book and I know that there will be triggers for some people, although all of these things happen in the past and are talked about later on, I still felt like the author did a great job handling some very sensitive subjects.
I really enjoyed watching Gen find herself again after being in a bad relationship, seeing her become a strong, confident woman again was wonderful. She's a great character that you will really enjoy. I also enjoyed the journey that Wolfe goes on, forgiving himself for something he had no control over, and finding love along the way. What he goes through is both horrifying and amazing that he made it to where he is. Their story is one that brought tears to my eyes (I'm not ashamed to admit!), made me smile like a loon, and made me feel everything that they went through.
Overall, Searching for Beautiful was a lovely story that left me with that warm fuzzy feeling that you get at the end of great book. Don't worry if you haven't read the others first, I had no problem keeping up, and I want to go back and start at the beginning. I loved it and I hope you will too!
To say that I'm a huge fan of the Demonica series is a bit of an understatement( it's one of my favorites), so when I got the opportunity to review HaTo say that I'm a huge fan of the Demonica series is a bit of an understatement( it's one of my favorites), so when I got the opportunity to review Hades I jumped right on! And I'm so excited to tell you all how much I enjoyed it, because it was really good!
Cataclysm has been working hard since her fall from Heaven, trying to earn back her wings. It doesn't help that she's completely accident prone. She's had a crush on Hades for a while, so when a huge mistake lands her in his domain the story really heats up. Hades has been paying for his mistakes for thousands of years, and having Cataclysm so close is a temptation he can't resist.
Cataclysm and Hades' story is a novella but it doesn't skimp on storyline. Hades never realized before how lonely he was until Cataclysm brightened up his life, and theirs is a story that is both sweet and ridiculously hot! I mean come on, fallen angel Hades is a total bad boy with his Mohawk and his flippant attitude. I also loved finding out how he fell, which made me love him even more.
All in all, Hades was a really good read! Fans of the series will love it, and if you haven't started this series yet, what are you waiting for? Give it a try!

Do you know how rare it is to find a romance where the woman is older than the man, especially one this well done? Janie is older than Tyler in this book and not by a year or two either, she's in her mid-thirties and he's twenty-four. You can see this age difference all the time in romance but usually it's the woman who's younger. I found it so refreshing to read about, and hotter than hell.
The characters were real, flaws and all, and so likable that they just pull your into their stories, even the secondary characters. Tyler might be young and wild, but from the minute he meets Janie he wants more. He's just been playing around until the right girl comes around. He's hard working, and so charming and goodhearted it was impossible for me not to fall for him. Heck, you'd be hard pressed to find a guy as good as him at any age! They just don't make them like they do in books, *sighs*.
Janie married young, to an older man, and found herself a widow in her mid-thirties. She's holding it together well, but she's under an enormous amount of stress trying to run her farm and make it on her own. She's strong but you can tell from the beginning that everything is starting to weigh on her. From the moment Tyler steps into her life, things start looking up
I don't like to give away too much of the story, but the age difference between the two is the major conflict, at least at first glance. The author did a great job because I didn't want to put it down. There were ups and downs, and lots of sexy scenes that kept me feeling all hot and bothered.
I loved everything about this book, and I think I might have found a new author to love. My Friday Freebie Post last week was even focused on cowboys. I've got it bad. I'll be buying some of her other books this week and I'll be sure to let you know what I think!

This book was completely engrossing and I read from start to finish with as little stops as possible. It was a stay up late to finish and damn the consequences kind of book!
Moira is such a strong and independent woman, she doesn't even use her real name to write her articles because she wants to be recognized on her own merit and not ride the coattails of her famous father's name. She decides to investigate the brutal murders of human women by Morgon men and she enlists the aid of her brother-in-law (the head of Nightwing security) to provide protection in the seedy underworld of Morgon fighting while searching for the murderers. Enter Kol Moonring.
Kol Moonring is completely unforgettable. I loved him. Period. Kol's presence just jumps right out of the pages, and their chemistry together is combustible. He's the Captain of the Morgon Guard and he wants the killers brought to justice too. Morgons and Humans have been segregated and have only recently started to integrate and work together as a whole community. With the murders occurring the fragile peace between the Humans and Morgans is in danger, and they must race against the clocks to catch them before they kill again.
Another reason I loved this book so much is Waking the Dragon has some awesome world building! There is just so much going on, and it's doled out in little bits (definitely no huge info dumps) and told seamlessly throughout the story. There's a rich history involved and it served to further pull me in.
I was so excited about this book that I went back and started the Nightwing series. Although, technically, you could read Waking the Dragon as a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading the Nightwing Series first as the Vale of Stars series is set after it. I wasn't lost or anything, so if you don't want to go back, no worries. All in all, I loved this book and cannot wait for the next one!
