Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened Series Book 1) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Erin Wolf

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened, #1)Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Her Blackened Soul (Blackened Series Book 1) by Isra Sravenheart, 4 stars.

This reads just like a fairytale for adults. Not just the story itself since it is about a “wicked witch”, but also in the way it is written. It is a fun story with interesting characters you meet throughout the book. The story also keeps you guessing. There were a few things I did not see coming.

This was a fun, interesting supernatural/fairytale read and if you are a fan, this book is for you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give The Widow: A Dark Romantic Fantasy by Naomi Valkryie & Rebecca E. McEwen, 5 stars.

If I could write a one word review it would be: WOW.

This book is just incredible. I didn’t really know where the book was going, but I loved the journey it took me on and was pleasantly surprised each time something unexpected happened. I loved Vashti. Simeon and Absalom are also very good characters and great additions. I found the story so compelling and could not put it down. I was eager to see what happened next, but I could not rush through the book. I devoured this book — something I have not done in a long time. The fact that the story is so different from most romantic fantasies made me love this book even more. I reall h tsee kore of this world in the future.

If you are a fan of dark romantic fantasies, this book is for you.

The Slaughter of Leith Hall by Lexie Conyngham – Review by Erin Wolf

The Slaughter of Leith HallThe Slaughter of Leith Hall by Lexie Conyngham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give The Slaughter of Leith Hall by Lexie Conyngham, 4 stars.

This is a really good historical murder mystery. What I enjoyed most was the main character, Charlie. It is really interesting to me to see things from a manservant’s point of view. I really like this idea and can’t say that I have seen it much in this genre. Then there is Charlie himself. Likeable, but quiet and unassuming, he really comes into himself as the book goes on. The twists and turns abound too. You are kept guessing as to who did it and why. The author throws many people at you, and you have to guess just where they fit in this puzzle. Then there is the buildup to the murder. The author sets the scene wonderfully, introducing us to the cast of characters and then shocking us with what happens. I like to be kept guessing and this was so enjoyable to me.

If you are a fan of historical mysteries, I highly recommend this book.

Calamity under the Chandelier (A Sleuthing Starlet Mystery Book 1) by Camilla Blythe – Review by Erin Wolf

Calamity under the Chandelier (Sleuthing Starlet Mystery #1)Calamity under the Chandelier by Bianca Blythe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Calamity under the Chandelier (A Sleuthing Starlet Mystery Book 1) by Camilla Blythe, 4 stars.

This a historical cozy mystery set in the time before WWII where Hollywood starlets were glamorous as ever. Our main character, Cora, is quite timid in the beginning of the book, but really finds herself and her inner strength as the story goes on and she is a good main character. The secondary characters are varied and interesting each in their own way.

This book is set up in your typical Agatha Christie-type fashion where we meet each of the characters and they are described in detail to us. Then the author throws in the death and has us figure out who the murderer is. Of course, they each had a motive and they aren’t what they appear. I really enjoy these types of books so this was fun to me. I did not guess the outcome and was pleasantly surprised when I got to the end. I am excited to see what book two in the series has in store.

If you enjoy Historical Cozy Mysteries, this book is for you.

Virtually Gone (High-Tech Crime Solvers Book 6) by Jacquie Biggar – Review by Erin Wolf

Virtually Gone (High-Tech Crime Solvers #6)Virtually Gone by Jacquie Biggar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Virtually Gone: A Mended Souls Novel (High-Tech Crime Solvers Book 6) by Jacquie Biggar, 4 stars.

This is crime novel that uses advanced technology to catch a serial rapist. This takes the traditional detective novel and enhances it with the use of up and coming advancements in technology. The story itself is very good too. We see things not only from the point of view of the detectives on the case, but also the reporters they happen to be friends with. Then of course there is the view of the perpetrator. This adds another layer of suspense. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next and if they could catch the killer in time.

If you are a fan of criminal thrillers that used new ways of catching the bad guy, this book is for you.

Curse of Seduction (Dark Princes of Purgatory Book 1) by CR Robertson – Review by Erin Wolf

Curse of SeductionCurse of Seduction by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Curse of Seduction (Dark Princes of Purgatory Book 1) by CR Robertson, 5 stars.

This is Paranormal Romance at its finest. Ilana and Ezekiel have the classic forbidden type romance. The author does this in such a unique an interesting way. Involving a curse has been done before, but I really like the way it’s done in this book. But as any exceptional para romance, this romance element is not the only thing this book has to offer. The action and each character struggling with not only their own problems but also the problems around them ties altogether and creates a story woven of such interesting threads that you will not be able to put it down. I cannot wait to see what else this series has to offer and anxiously await when I can read the next book.

If you are a fan of Paranormal Romance, I highly recommend this book.

Ashes To Ashes Boxset (books 1-3) by Rowena Holloway – Review by Erin Wolf

Ashes To Ashes Boxset (books 1-3)Ashes To Ashes Boxset by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Ashes To Ashes Box Set: Books 1 to 3 by Rowena Holloway, 5 stars.

This set is amazing! When I started the first book, I wasn’t sure what to think. But that was solved when I quickly learned that I could not put the book down. Each book in this set does that — pulls you in with stories and characters that are so compelling. Some people, you want to know more of; others you love to hate. The stories themselves are gripping and leave you guessing until the end.

With a superb cast and stories you submerge yourself in, this set is a great buy and I highly recommend it for those who like psychological suspense.

Dare Me (The Demonology Series Book One) by Felicity Brandon – Review by Erin Wolf

Dare Me (Book One in the Demonology series)Dare Me by Felicity Brandon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Dare Me: A Paranormal Demon Romance (The Demonology Series Book 1) by Felicity Brandon, 4 stars.

This is a paranormal erotic story involving a down on her luck artist. She can’t seem to pull herself out of the misery she is in. This is perfect fodder for a demon who thrives on misery. But there is something else about this mortal that he just can’t give up.

This story has a lot of sex and steamy scenes. It also tends to lean heavily on the slave/master type of sex. If that is not your thing, this may not be for you. However, if you enjoy this, you will definitely enjoy this book. Selling your soul to the devil to become famous has been around for as long as there have been forms of entertainment. That is what the author uses as her basis, and spins her on tale from there.

If you are a fan of dominant demons and submissive mortals in a dance of love and sex, this book may just be for you.

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles, Book 3) by India Kells – Review by Erin Wolf

Dead Magic (The Sanctuary Chronicles #3)Dead Magic by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Dead Magic: The Sanctuary Chronicles by India Kells, 4 stars.

This is a steamy Paranormal Romance book that is a great addition to the series. It can be read as a standalone, but I encourage you to read all of them since they are all wonderful reads. The story is quite interesting and I could not put the book down until I was finished. The characters just add to it. Violet and Finn are the perfect example of opposites attracting. Add in their friends and this great book gets even better.

If you are a fan of Paranormal Romance, you should read this book.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5)Martimus by Seelie Kay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay, 4 stars.

This is another great addition to a fantastic series in romantic suspense. There is plenty of action as well as the kind of romance that would make your mom blush. If you are familiar with the series, you will know how well the author blends these into a story you cannot put down. The main story in this one is generally the same yet still completely different. There is much to follow, but it is not confusing at all.

The characters are another part of what makes this book. If you have read the series, you will recognize the the, but they continue to grow and we learn so much more about some of them. You may learn that some aren’t so bad, where others are horrible.

If you are a fan of steamy suspense, this book and series are for you. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading them all because they are so good.
