Five star review A night of Secrets by Lori Brighton

A Night of Secrets (Night #1)A Night of Secrets by Lori Brighton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book from start to finish. Grayson (Gray) was absolutely heart flutter worthy the entire time. He's dark and mysterious. He keeps secrets at all times. But he only keeps them to protect others. He has only come to town to find his niece, get her back and kill every last member of the family that has her because he is under the mistaken impression that they murdered his sister and kidnapped his niece. There is also the fact that he must find her before it is her time to go through the change. Humans would never understand and they would kill her or cast her out! The only problem is that when he meets " Meg" the eldest daughter of the very family he came to slaughter, he knows she is not being totally honest with him but he just can't picture her being a murder. What choice does he have when she is telling lies and fresh bodies are piling up all around her?
Hannah's mother was murdered in front of her when she was seven. Meg found her with the child as she lay on the street dying. Meg promised the dying woman that she would protect her daughter. Then her father, a Vicar dragged her and the child into the church while beasts that looked human with yellow glowing eyes dragged off the body. Meg and her father did the only thing they knew to do. They took the child and their family and fled to america to hide. Two years later and Hannah has started acting peculiar. People are dying and disappearing and all clues somehow lead back to Meg. She does not have time for a murder investigation. She must take care of her father,sisters and also hide and keep Hannah safe from the monster that killed her mother and is most more than likely searching for Hannah. He may never give up. She has so much responsibility and no one to rely on. Grayson, The dark and mysteriously troubling new neighbor would allow her to rely on him. But she knows in her gut he's not being honest and has his own agenda. Meg notices that Grayson has the same piercing green eyes as Hannah and her mother, that at times she could swear, seem to glow. She suspects that Hannah's mother was a vampire and she is pretty sure Grayson as well. So what does that make Hannah?!
I give this five out of five stars! It was a roller coaster ride all the way through!

 

Five star review of Her obsession by Shaunna Rodriguez

Her ObsessionHer Obsession by Shaunna Rodriguez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first found this book, I was in the middle of a rt'ing nightmare and only read a small blurb about the book. I was like " roommate loses mind and holds the other hostage. " Sounds cool enough. So I added it to my already growing list of freebies to read and review thinking it was fiction. I started reading and quickly realized that this was actual truth! This story is so amazingly crazy! Most of the time I was thinking.. I would die!! I would just die! " I didn't even know what I would do in that situation! I kept going between " Oh my god!! Whats going to happen? Is she going to make it? " And " This is one freaking psycho B***H!!!!!" I was on the proverbial edge of my seat the entire time. Her Obsession was a great read from start to finish!!! I will be reading the second installment " Her Hostage"

“What am I thinking? She'll never be my anything! “ Snippet of Legacy Forgotten by Nicole Hill

Kenneth awoke with the most wonderful taste in his mouth. He didn't understand. The last thing he remembered was finding Ailis in the grips of one hell of a nightmare. When she awoke she was still screaming and fighting.       Was the dream about him? He was wondering to himself When he felt someone struggling. He popped his eyes open and saw Ailis. She looked scared and pale. He realized that the taste in his mouth was her blood! He was taking her blood! He let go of her arm and she immediatley fainted. Oh Shit! He thought as he jumped up. Had he taken too much? Had he attacked her? He couldn't remember. He had to think fast. She needed more blood but it was risky.  Oh the hell with it! he thought. She's already half vampire , He had to save her! He'd worry about her wrath later. Here goes. He thought as he placed his wrist over her mouth at the same time he took her abused wrist in his hands and slid his tongue over the wound to close it. He watched as her fangs lengthened and she bit into his wrist and began to drink timidly. She was still unconscious and acting out of pure instinct. He smiled to himself. My little Vampire. he thought and then quickly reprimanded himself. What am I thinking? She'll never be my anything!  She'll end up marrying that pompous ass hole Collin and having him lots of babies and living happily ever after.
He stopped her from drinking and then sealed his own wound. He lifted her in his arms ignoring how right she felt there and placed her gently in her bed. He gazed down at her loving what he saw and wishing it was him that she would think about spending the rest of her life with. It was best that he just leave and return home to Madrid and never bother her again. Just then her eyes fluttered open.
“Why are you always so sad?” She asked softly.
“You have only known me a couple of weeks how do you know I am always sad?” He asked.
She looked serious. “I met you a couple of weeks ago but I have felt you for months. That is why I came.” She said with a tired sigh.
“What are you talking about?” Kenneth asked.
“I felt your pain and followed it. My grandmother died but I came only after I started feeling your presence and it led me here.” She said as she smiled at him and reached up to stroke the side of his face. “I would make you feel better if I could”. She said quietly as she turned her head and fell back to sleep.

" Don't ever come near me again! " Teaser from Legacy Forgotten by Nicole Hill




Ailis Queen of Avalon 2Ailis awoke with someone banging on her door. She didn't even remember getting into bed. She ran down stairs and opened the door to a very agitated Collin. “

Where have you been?!” He nearly shouted.

What do you meanAilis answered. “I came home and went to bed.” She replied sleepily.

He stared at her like she was a stranger. “Ailis, Collin stated. “That was two days ago.”
She stood staring. “What are you talking about?”

Collin heaved a sigh. “Ailis, what day was it that we found the last body?”

That's a stupid question she responded. “That was Monday.”

Collin turned around and picked up the paper from the porch and showed it to her.“Today is Wednesday.” He stated.

Ailis stared at the paper numbly for a few minutes and then started laughing.
Collin thought she had lost it. “Are you all right Ailis? I don't see what is so funny.

I'm sorry Ailis said. “I just remembered that when I got home I just was thinking that I was so tired that I could sleep for two days. Well I guess I really was that tired.” She finished with a giggle.

Collin chuckled a little and then pulled Ailis into his embrace. She hugged him back stiffly at first but then relaxed. Collin had always been there for her and in his own way she supposed that he loved her. She just wasn't sure how she felt about him. I'm sorry that you were worried Collin.” Ailis said against his chest.

Worried?” He said. “You scared the hell out of me. You didn't even answer your phone. Collin held her face in his hands and tilted her face to his. He stared into her eyes. “I don't know what I'll do if anything were to happen to you. He stated. Then his lips were on hers.

Ailis didn't know what to do. In the next moment, she felt a swell of rage that she knew could only come from one place. Ailis backed up breaking the contact.

Collin looked confused.Ailis” he started sounding hurt. But she stopped him.

Look Collin this is not the best time. You have just succeeded in completely confusing me and I just need some time right now.” Collin looked hurt for minute and then he backed out the door and turned to leave. He stopped midway and turned back to her.

You know I love you Ailis. I would be good to you. You know that don't you?He asked.
Ailis could only shake her head. Good he said with a smile. “Take your time.” And then he left. 

Ailis could not even think. What had just happened? She knew Collin had feelings for her but she had never led him on. She didn't want to hurt him but she just didn't think of him like that. And Kenneth, She was so furious with him that she could barely contain herself. “Where are you?! You had no right to interfere with my life.” She mentally yelled at him. Kenneth did not answer. “Fine then, ignore me. Don't ever come near me again.” She raved.

Five star Review! "“Legacy Forgotten” by self-published author Nicole Hill was a delight to read! "

5 of 5 stars false
bookshelves: favorites
Read from April 11 to 24, 2012

“Legacy Forgotten” by self-published author Nicole Hill was a delight to read! This book is good, really good! I was pulled into the story from the first few pages. The author writes with such a common verve and vitality that it was like talking to a girlfriend of mine and she was explaining a story to me.

The heroine, Ailis, is tough on the outside and has the knock your socks off powers to prove it! I love powerful women characters and she was one! Being a half vampire, witch, and hard as nails detective, Ailis is drawn to her past only to find her family has secrets that have been hidden from her for a long time.

I loved, loved Kenneth! What a twisted, messed up and downright awesome leading man/vampire! I enjoy and are addicted to flaws in characters like Kenneth, and then love comes to “bite” them into a different reality. Kenneth was drop-dead smexy! I really loved the way he was portrayed, and he sure kept my attention!

This book has action, passion, mystery, and most of all a wonderfully framed story! I was truly blown away by how the pacing moved and weaved. It kept me reading until early in the morning because I just couldn’t put it down.

The story line with the bad guy “Monolo” just came with so many twists and turns that I was saying to myself as I was reading it, “Now, that is cool!” I love stories that are not all clean cut and clear. I love shockers and unexpected storylines! Well, “Legacy Forgotten” had it all! The book has editing issues, however editing can be fixed, the underlying story and the action can’t. But this author doesn’t need to do anything with that the book is outstanding in story and content, truly! I am sure that this author has a bright future, and being a self-confessed “Vampire Connoisseur,” I will have to say “Legacy Forgotten” is one of the books I favorited, and I will go back and read again and again, it is just that good!

For content, story and just plain excitement, I give “Legacy Forgotten” a rating of 5 out of 5 stars! Great job by the author, Nicole Hill!

" The queen finally reveals herself. " Snippet from Legacy Forgotten by Nicole Hill




Kenneth drew his sword as he fully changed. He could feel his skin pull tight over his head and his fangs lengthen to the longest point. He felt the power that was the essence of the Vampire surge through him. He was no spring chicken anymore but where the human species got feebler with age the vampire got more strong, more fierce and more agile. There were so many of them. He looked around and saw William staggering back from a blow to his side. Kenneth was there in a flash. He swung his sword over his head and watched it meet with the vampire's neck. It was a clean cut and the vampire was ash before he hit the ground. Kenneth nodded his head to William as he moved on. 
The fight seemed to last forever and more kept coming. Kenneth could have sworn that there was only twenty to start with. He had taken out at least ten on his own and there were still more. They were tiring fast. He knew that they should have brought more people. He turned when he saw a flash to his right a bit to late to deflect the blow to his leg. It hurt like hell and the vampire paid dearly for that pain. The cut was very deep. A little more and that bastard would have cut his whole leg off!
He was tired now from the physical exertion and he was quickly bleeding out. He needed to get the wound wrapped until he could feed enough to close it. He wasn't sure how much longer he could last. From the corner of his eye he caught a glimpse of the witches filling out into a line. Get back! He screamed. Just then he felt the entire ground shaking. All fighting stopped as everyone turned to look at the women. Their hair seemed to blow back on an invisible breeze. Their eyes seemed to glow as they held hands. Kenneth felt the last of his strength going and he nearly fell to the ground. He had the feeling that they were using their powers to combine with his and the others of the force. Kenneth knew that something bad was fixing to happen.
 “Get out of here!” He mentally sent to the others. As soon as they flashed out of the parameter there was a huge beam of light that covered the entirety of the camp. Kenneth could smell burning vampire and knew that anyone who stayed behind was gone. As soon as he felt that it was safe, he and the others flashed back. The women were still standing side by side with their hands linked. Kenneth stepped forward. “Stop!” The one in the center said with her hand held out. Kenneth stopped short. “Identify yourself.” She said.
 “We mean you no harm.” Kenneth started.
 “We don't believe you.” She stated sounding bored. 
We have come to help you.” He said. “We want to take you to a safe place. We have other like you that we have rescued and now protect.”
 “We will not go with you.” She said with finality. 
We mean only to protect you.Kenneth stated. The air grew still again and the women started to lift off the ground. Kenneth could feel his energy ebbing away at a rapid force. He looked at the others and could tell by their expressions that theirs was going as well. “Try to leavehe sent out and he could also tell that they were unable. This was going to hurt. Kenneth thought to himself. 
Just as he was bracing himself for impact, he felt strange warmth on his face. He opened his eyes and was amazed to see Ailis. Well an apparition of her at least. He didn't even know that she could do that. She was surrounded by light and all but floating! The women immediately fell to one knee and bowed their heads while Kenneth stood there, his mouth agape trying to think past the brightness of the light radiating from her. .

“You are totally insane!” Exerpt from Legacy Forgotten by Nicole Hill

 Kenneth knew the presence when he felt it. It was Carmelita, she was calming her granddaughter. “What did she want? Where is she?” He thought to himself as he reached down and grabbed Ailis' arms in a tight grip.
You're hurting me she shot back.
I know you felt her to, I saw your face.” He growled.
Let go! Ailis nearly screamed.
He obeyed although he had no idea why. He didn't answer to anyone. “Where is she? He asked again.
Ailis was confused. He couldn't be talking about her grandmother. “Who are you talking about? She asked.
You know very well who I am talking about” he snapped. “Carmelita, were is she?”
Now she was very confused. “My grandmother, what are you talking about?”She asked irritated.
Yes your grandmother! I felt her here. Where is she Damn it!”
Ailis was starting to get frightened so she backed away from Kenneth. “My grandmother is dead. She died six months ago.” she screamedShe saw flames in Kenneth's eyes and turned to run as fast as she could. 
Kenneth was amazed. She ran so fast. Not as fast as he did but definatly three times as fast as a human. With a little effort he caught up to her nearing her car in an alley and grabbed hold of her arms.“Stop running, he yelled at her.
She looked up at him and her eyes flashed a light glow of red behind her pupils. “Let go” she said in a low menacing voice.
He let go then and stared at her aghast at what he had just witnessed. “What the hell are you?” He asked. The flash had disappeared and she was back to normal.
Let me go she stated.
No I won't.” Kenneth was not about to let her go not after what he had just witnessed. “Now answer my question. How could you possibly not know? You can't go into your twenties and never have realized.” Kenneth asked.
What a stupid question that is, I am human of course.” Ailis answered angrily.
Yes I can see that part of you but the other part is definitely not human.” He didn't want to frighten her by saying what he suspected the other part to be.
You are being ridiculous. She started and turned to leave. This guy was crazy. Kenneth held her arm to stop her.
Have you ever craved blood he asked directly?” She scolded him with her look.
Of course not! I am leaving now. You are insane, I could have worked with the fact that you are a vampire and with the fact that you kill people at least as long as I kept finding that they were the most despicable scum of the universe. But I absolutely cannot forgive the fact that you are totally insane.” She said leaning in to throw her over shirt in the front seat.

***

Kenneth was furious that this little slip of a woman dared to talk to him like that. He decided to prove it to her. No matter how much it frightened her. Right now he didn't give a damn. He brought his wrist to his mouth and ripped a whole in it. Blood automatically started to pour out. In his anger Kenneth Tore the hole to big and felt the life force draining from him to fast. 
Ailis knew that he had made a mistake also and lurched forward to grab his wrist. Covering it with her hand desperately reaching inside her car for the over shirt she had thrown into the front seat. She removed her hand and wrapped the shirt around tightly to cut off the flow of blood. She was in the middle of chastising him for being so completely stupid, when the sensation hit her. She had only felt this a few times before and never this strong. She felt it first in her stomach and then in her mouth, the small teeth on either side began to lengthen. That had never happened before. She pressed her lips closed to hide the evidence. What the hell was happening? Her head began to swim and she jumped into the car and grabbed the wet naps from the front seat and began scrubbing the blood off of her hands. Shit, this was not happening. She just could not face this right now. When she got the urge under control she looked up at Kenneth who looked rather pale. She jumped out of the car and helped him to stand.
I'm fine he chuckled, “just a little weak. I need to feed.”
Ailis let out a large sigh and looked up at him. “Please don't kill anyone.” She asked quietly.
That angered Kenneth far more than her denying what she was. He looked down at her darkly, “Don't presume that you can tell me what to do.” He said quietly and seemingly with no emotion at all. Then he was gone.

“Make no mistake Ailis, You will submit to me." Snippet from Legacy Forgotten By Nicole Hill


Suddenly Monolo was standing over her bed stroking her hair from her face. She tried to fight him off. He held her steady. “Awe.” He said like he was talking to a child. “You didn't know. That's OK baby. We will make him pay for what he's done to you.” She drew her energy and pushed as hard as she could. He flew against the wall. She was able to jump out of bed and run. She made it down stairs and there he was standing right in front of her. He chuckled. “You are much stronger than your grandmother was, still not strong enough. But you will be. I am going to enjoy making you submit to me.” He said chuckling. “Make no mistake Ailis, You will submit to me. As soon as you have gone through the change you will be every bit as strong as I am. And by that time you will know where your loyalties lie.” Ailis started backing away. She had to get away.
Suddenly Monolo stopped and looked angry, and with the speed of light he was in front of her with his hand on her stomach. It was a natural reaction. She put her hand over his.
 “What are you doing?” She asked, her voice shaking from fright. 
That stupid idiot he roared. You are with child!” 
Ailis was confused. “Wh..What?” Ailis thought she was hearing wrong. “There is no way she stated Vampires can't father children.” She said shaking her head. 
No matter Monolo said looking a little happier. If the baby survives the change then we will have a little one to raise as our own.” 
Ailis had tears running down her face. "Just kill me. "  she said angrily. 
Oh no” Monolo stated “I would have you as my own. Don't worry about Alejandro. You won't ever have to see him again.” With that he leapt on her. Turned her head to the side and bit down. He took some of her blood and then sealed the wounds. He then cut his wrists and placed it over her mouth. She didn't even try to stop him. " It doesn't matter. " she thought. "As soon as he isn't paying attention I will walk into the sun! "  Just then the pains started. Coming from her stomach and moving out. She had never felt anything like it before. Still, she did not reach out to Kenneth. Why would she? He got what he wanted. He played her for the fool and then left. " God if the pain doesn't stop soon I am really is going do die from it! " she thought helplessly. It seemed like hours that she was fighting. She just knew that she wasn’t going to last much longer. She couldn't help herself when the next one hit it was to strong. She screamed at the top of her lungs. She could hear Monolo laughing. Then she heard Kenneth's voice. It sounded like they were fighting but she couldn't concentrate because the pains were too bad. She heard his voice in her head telling her that if she calms down it makes it more bearable. She tried her best to just let the pain come instead of fighting it. It was coming slower and less powerful now and she was more aware of her surroundings. Kenneth and Monolo were in the middle of a war and they were tearing her house apart. Slowly the pains subsided and she was able get up again. When she came to her feet she saw Monolo standing over Kenneth. 
She is mine.” He spat down at him. That was it! Ailis had had enough! Her blood was boiling and she was shaking all over. She knew that even if she wanted to she couldn't stop it this time. She was about to tear the house down. She drew every ounce of energy she had.
 “I belong to no one!” she shouted and threw every shred of power she had within her at the both of them. It surprised her how much stronger she felt. There was a blue light brighter than any she had ever seen that flashed across the room. As she turned to run,  there was an explosion so large, it shook the entire house.

5 Stars! Charmeine (The Light-Bearer Series) By Emily Guido

Charmeine (The Light-Bearer Series, #1)Charmeine by Emily Guido
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book draws you in from the first page. It starts off with preparations for a great battle in heaven and continues completely through with battles on earth. Charmeine and Tabbruis were made for each other in heaven and when they are separated for hundreds of years, with no memory of who or what they are, their mission looks pretty grim. But you will learn that where there is love, there is always the strength to go on.There is no down time in this story. There are no long bouts of filler information. This book is pure raw adrenaline from start to finish! So well written that at times I felt unable to breathe during some of the fights. It's heart wrenching at times and at others you will be so filled with joy that you think you really might burst. It's about fighting for and trusting the person you love no matter the consequences. It's about the belief that time nor space could ever separate two people who are meant to be. I loved that their road was far from easy and at times it would have been easier to just give up but they never did. I will definitely be waiting for the second installment, " Ransom " when it is released.

" You have given me back the sun " Excerpt from Legacy Forgotten



He stopped arguing. Not because he believed her but because he knew he couldn't change her mind and he knew he was going to die. What hurt the most was that even though she denied it he thought that she knew to. She wanted him dead and until this moment he never realized what love was because he knew that he would give her anything that she wanted even if it caused his death. Just then he felt that familiar sensation. The sun was rising and he was going to die. He saw the first rays of light and closed his eyes tightly to prepare for the pain.
No Ailis stated. “Keep them open.
He opened his eyes knowing that he was defeated and looked out the window. At least if he was about to die he would see the sun first. The sun started to rise slowly and he prepared himself, it seemed like it took forever. Then he saw it. The top of the sun coming up over the top of the water. The water was blue not the gray that it looked at night. The orange yellow hues from the sun where cascading across all that he could see below bathing the world in color that he had not been able to see in person for over one hundred years. His eyes burned a little but not the way they normally do, more like, just sensitive.
Ailis watched the amazement cross his features. The sun was nearly all the way up. She reached over and pressed the button to release the clamps and Kenneth Bolted from the chair to the window. She got there before he reached for the clasp that held it closed.
No! She snapped. “Don't open it.”
How is this happening?” He barely whispered
It's the glass. She responded.” It has a special film that blocks out the rays of the sun and it's the rays that will kill you not the light.”
He could feel the warmth from the sun already and it felt wonderful. He was amazed. He was standing here in broad daylight watching the sunrise as if he were once again human. Once again able to love and be loved back. He turned to look at her. There were tears in his eyes. She reached up and took his face between her hands.
Are you OK?” She asked. “Did I do something wrong. I just though that…
He stopped her and put his hands over hers. “No” he said “you didn't do anything wrong. No one has ever done anything like this for me.” “Look” he said looking out the window again before turning back to look into her eyes. “The sun. Ailis…You have given me back the sun.”

Review of Wanted Dead or Undead by Angela Scott

Five Stars!!!!

I read this book because when I saw the tweet for it, I thought " Zombies and Cowboys! Eye roll. " That probably sucks. " I was pleasantly surprised. It's the story of Red and Cowboy. ( They have real names but they are " Red and Cowboy") Cowboy is your typical southern city boy. He likes his creature comforts and hates " roughing it " Red is tough, beautiful and smart as heck. She has survived her entire family all of who died by her hand. She is also hiding a very large, very dangerous secret that will knock your socks off. This book is full of twists and turns that will keep you up all night. ( I was up till 1:30am. But I had to finish before I could sleep. ) For those die hard zombie fans, It has your typical Zombie lore and the struggle of those left behind but the author has thrown in a few curve balls to keep ya on your toes. It's like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly meets The Walking Dead. I loved it! Plain and simple. You will not want their story to end and the best part is... It continues in the second installment " Survivor Round- Up " which I fully intend to read as well. Expect review to follow. Any books written by Angela Scott will now be on my to- read list.
