When Fate makes you her bitch, accept it and adapt. Or die.
The Niteclif Evolutions, Book 1
Looking back on the wish she made on Midsummer’s Eve, Maddy Niteclif should have been more specific. She only wanted to escape the shadowy nightmares that plagued her nights, not to be thrust into a completely altered reality.
If a strangely familiar, sexy dragon-shifter named Bahl...more
It's fun and very fast pacing.
I slightly disliked the heroine, but all the rest was great!
it has a HUGE cliffhanger at the end! So now I'm thinking that I'll be waiting for the rest of the book to come out! :)
That night, she quickly learns that wish or no wish, a changed reality is exactly what she's gotten. Turns out, she's a third generation Niteclif, descendant of Sherlock, and she's required to "... accept [her legacy] by age of thirty and pick up the mantle of service for minimum of ten ...more
Also this is a negative, sometimes snarky reward in which I’m really rude towards the heroine (Maddy), so if you don’t like it don’t read it.
More or less from the beginning of the book I found myself disliking Maddy to the point of nitpicking faults. Like say the opening line in which she calls herself sleep deprived yet still insists on driving. Also it's perfectly normal to convince herself she was suffering from sleep-de ...more

RECEIVED: Reviewing for Nurture Book Tour
I’m a big fan of paranormal stories with a mix of supernaturals and Denise Tompkins writes a unique story doing just that. Legacy is the first novel in the Niteclif Evolution series, filled with mystery, adventure, and lots of sizzling romance.

This book surprised me, it was different than I thought it would be, but in a good way.
I loved the twist with Sherlock Holmes, the whole murder mystery tied in with some paranormal. We get to meet a variety of supernatural beings, Fae, Vampires, Shifters, dragon or otherwise and much more but all that is ties into a newat little twist with the original Sher ...more

Humor, be it light or dark, is critical to my mental health. Add a dash of snark, a little suspense and an occasional murder and you've found my literary voice. Oh, and smexy. Can't forget the smexy. My theory is a kiss should be meaningful regardless of leng ...more
