Set in a contemporary fictional world of Penton, Alabama, Redemption tells the story of a man turned vampire ages ago. Aidan Murphy wants the best for his people after a pandemic leaves vampires out in the cold with no humans to feed from. He comes up with a civilized plan where vampires and humans can coexist. I loved Aidan's valiance. He's no predator. He's a true leader.
In order to lead his people he hires a doctor for the town of Penton - a human woman named Krys. Krys becomes the love of Aidan's new life, and she also helps Aidan find his Redemption. I loved her. She's a strong heroine, no nonsense, and once she falls for Aidan there's no turning back.
The town of Penton must work together to stop a ruthless foe - Aidan's brother Owen. Sandlin pulled no punches when she designed the perfect adversary for Aidan and his crew. Owen's financial backers are even scarier than he is. A satisfying plot marches right upside the heart tugging romance in this first book in The Penton Legacy.
Loved all of her secondary characters. Mirren, Will, And Lucy were fun to watch, and I enjoyed hating Matthias Ludlam and his cronies.
I'll definitely read more of this series. I'd recommend Susannah Sandlin to anyone who likes paranormal romance.

I loved this story. This paranormal fantasy romance is set in a world that's big and delicious, fully equipped with a hard rock band's approach to life and love that delighted me.
Main character Xochitl meets her destiny when master sorcerer Zareth comes for her through his dreams to Earth, and leads her into his world where a prophecy foretells her magic will liberate his kingdom from darkness. I was thrilled with the fantasy elements in this story. The singing and music made it even better.
Credit to the author who wove Xochitl's real life on Earth with the demands of the fantasy world she has to learn to live in. It was flawless the way the author blended the worlds, and I so want to go spend a summer in Aisthanesthai with all the characters who populate this world. They even have DRAGONS!
It was the love story that held it all together for me. These two souls from different worlds found each other and surprised themselves, and me, as they fought to sustain their magic and their love. Xochitl and Zareth were never meant to be, yet they can't exist without each other.
Villains exist in this realm, and what seems at first to be another typical prince charming chilled me. Come check out this story for an adventure where love finds its way among a path made of magic.
I'll be looking for more stories from Brooklyn Ann. ...more
Oh. My. God. You have to read this book. If you love paranormal romance with a twist of humor, Bonnie Gill’s new release, Tempting the Light should haOh. My. God. You have to read this book. If you love paranormal romance with a twist of humor, Bonnie Gill’s new release, Tempting the Light should have a place on your reading shelf.
Gill set her story in contemporary New Jersey where Abby Fitzgerald finds herself living out her family’s notorious curse. And the worst part isn’t that a tampon genie cursed her on the first day of her period every month – no, the worst part for Abby is the man she’s fallen in love with is the one man who’s been sent to destroy her thanks to her damned curse.
River Stone works for the Legends and Myths Paranormal Squad hunting Cryptids and keeping humans safe. When he takes a new assignment where he must stop or kill a man eating gnome and the legendary Jersey Devil, the last thing he expects is to fall for the lovely Abby. She’s entranced him, yet she changes into the notorious Jersey Devil.
I loved this story. How can these two lovers resolve this impasse? Will Abby find a way to stop the curse? How will River resolve his professional duty with what his heart tells him must be? They garner some help from their friends Pepper and Ottar, secondary characters who are hilariously drawn and promise a future story of their own, I hope.
No spoilers here. You’ll have to nab yourself a copy and see how Abby and River resolve their impossible dilemma and deal with their inevitable romance.
I laughed all the way to the end. If you love paranormal romance, have a soft spot in your heart for animals, love a happily ever after yet yearn for a twist of humor to lighten the mood, treat yourself to a copy of this book.
I’ll be looking forward to more from Bonnie Gill and the L.A.M.P.S. sexy Cryptid hunters.
I was given an ARC of the novel in exchange for my honest review. ...more

You instinctively know, as a reader, pretty early on when you're in the hands of a PRO, of a real story teller. That's the sensation I got when reading this book. Tamara Lush has exceeded my expectations.
The sex was hot. The emotions are high. The love affair between Caleb and Emma was real, and honest, and worthy. And I adored how her issues got in her way - most of the time I roll my eyes at that crap in typical romance stories, but with Emma it was palpable, and tangible. Her pain and worries felt righteous and correct.
I laughed my ass off at her doing shots in Norway, and I felt the hangover.
This is one of those books I could not put it down. I liked him before, and I figured Caleb was gonna show at the important city council meeting, but his proposal to save Emma's building and meet her needs on every level possible totally made him a hero in my heart.
Treat yourself to a good read.

Set in modern times, Play Nice tells the story of the Rock and Roll band, The Devil's Share, and how one courageous and gorgeous woman saves them all.
Dash Connor, lead singer for the band doesn't know what hit him when Lexi walks into his life. He falls for her - hard. Watching the romance heat up between Lexi and Dash was just great. When he hires her to photograph the band, it's every girl's dream come true for Lexi. When things get out of hand and a condom breaks, well, the story takes off. I could not put the book down.
Also, Maxa doesn't stop there. She leads the reader into the lives of all the band members, making for a well-rounded tale full of characters I want to know more about. One of my favorite heroes in the book is Daggar. You simply must meet Daggar.

Filled with scenes ripped from the headlines, the story follows fledgling journalist Skylar ShawThis romantic suspense hooked me from the first page.
Filled with scenes ripped from the headlines, the story follows fledgling journalist Skylar Shaw as she reports on news in modern day Florida. Skylar falls into the story of her life when she investigates a mysterious Good Samaritan, and finds Luca Rossi, a man with a dark past, deep secrets, and ties to the mafia he's unwilling to discuss.
Luca's complicated, and so is the romance that develops between the main characters. Throw in an Italian hit man, and one seriously disturbed ex-girlfriend, and the suspense takes off from there.
Skylar and Luca's romance is as hot as the blazing Florida sun. I loved reading how they fought for their chance at their Happy Ever After.
I'll definitely be looking for more from this author.

Once it got started and I oriented myself to the three POV characters, the story took off and I couldn't put it down.
I discovered tons of deep internal issues between these three characters, Rachel, Anna, and Megan, that kept me guessing to the reveal at the end. I will say this - the way Hawkins tied up their loose ends made for a very satisfying read. Lots of heartbreak, suspense, and deep internal reflection about love, trust, and human interaction.

A tale of second chances for Daisy Edwards and Fitz English, Regnery weaves a spell of how love-lost can be rekindled.
Set in modern day Philadelphia, the story gives a glimpse into the world of the English Brothers, but it focuses on Daisy and Fitz who reconnect as adults after a summer of love nine years before. I loved it. Falling for Fitz kept me engaged, made me smile, laugh out loud a few times, and left me with that cozy, wonderful afterglow of a great love story well-told.
I'll be checking out the other English Brothers stories soon....more
