Dracones Guardian: Dark Dragon, Archangel Paranormal Fantasy Romance, Book Six, by Sheri-Lynn Marean

5-Stars

Dracones Guardian is the sixth book in this series. It is the first book I have read from this series. I was a little confused at first, but felt the author did an excellent job providing some back story to help me understand the storyline. I do feel that it would make more sense reading books one through five. I lived main characters Zander and Chloe. They were easy to fall for and I loved their development as the story progressed. I felt that the storyline was easy to follow and full of excitement. This was a creative novel and I highly recommend it. I will definitely be reading more from this author.

5-Stars

After Wrath was exciting, emotional, and full of action. I feel it was just as good as book one and a great addition to this series. I do recommend reading book one before reading this second installment. There is a lot that provides back story to this novel in book one. Aleksander is the main character of this novel and he steps in to revenge his brother Seban and reclaim his brother’s territory. He seeks those who got away in book one. I loved the development of his character in this short novel and also the affect Kitty had on him. I really enjoyed this easy to read novel and highly recommend it. I cant wait to see what more this author has in store.

5-stars

Wrath was an action packed steamy romance. There was not a dull moment in this storyline at all. I was captured by the authors writing from page one. Konstandin was an excellent character. He fought hard for love and had to face the hardest decision ever by going against his own blood. He grew up in a life full of torture, pain, cruelty, and death. He chose to change for Jade aka Rea. I loved his focus and determination despite his injuries. This was such an excellent and action packed novel. I can’t wait to see what is in store for book two. I highly recommend this book!

Out Of The Box Collection (A Second Chance Romance Series, The Complete 3 Book Collection) by Jennifer Theriot

5-stars

Out Of The Box Collection features three novels by Jennifer Theriot hat cannot be read as standalone books. I love having them grouped together since each one picks up where the other ended. The collection features the novels Awakening, Regifted, and Everlasting. The novels follow Ash Harper and Olivia Peterson. Awakening introduces these two amazing characters as Olivia comes to terms with her husband leaving her. The second book, Regifted, continues to follow these two as they live and figure life as a newly engaged couple while Olivia also embraces a new version of herself. Book three, Everlasting, continues to follow the engaged couple as tragedy strikes. Their love is challenged in this third novel more than any.

I loved the character development in all of these books. Ash and Olivia’s families become blended and I love how accepting everyone was of each other. There were many times I was literally laughing out loud and other times when I would tear up for one of the characters. The storyline was easy to follow in these books and it was edited well. The settings were descriptive and easy to visualize. I appreciated the focus on love and family. This emotionally investing collection is definitely worth 5 stars and I highly recommend it.

Edge Of The Storm is the second installment in those series and cannot be read as a standalone. There is a lot of back story in the first novel that leads up to the action in this novel. Sloan aka Blackbird must rescue her mentor Halo who has been taken. Halo is being used as a bomb and Blackbird and her team must diffuse the situation and disable the bomb. This short novel has a ton of action and is easy to read. I loved the characters and but of romance that occurs. I look forward to more in this series .

5-stars

Impact is the second book I have read in this series and can be read as a standalone. The story focuses on main character Manuel aka Manny. I love how in depth the author goes into his back story with this novel. The life he led from an early age was difficult and something I hated that he had to live through. I do feel that it helped him become strong and independent in the long run. The supporting characters also had amazing detail and development. I felt that the story was also easy to follow and organized. The story would switch from present to past but the author labeled each section accordingly to keep the reader focused and moving forward. This was such an excellent book and I highly recommend it. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.

The Immigrant: An Italian In America (Woman Scientist Novel 1, The Italian Saga) by Gaia B. Amman

5-Stars

The Immigrant follows main character Ledah as she begins her latest journey on American soil. This novel can be read as a standalone but many characters mentioned are in other books featured in the Italian Saga series. I love Ledah’s character as she attempts to embrace all the crazy American ways. The way she went about entering the country though and all the hoops she had to go through had me stressed reading it. I couldn’t imagine doing that myself. I admire how independent and intelligent she is. This novel was an excellent read and I highly recommend it.

Past Storm And Fire by Christy Nicholas

5-stars

Past Storm And Fire was a creative and interesting novel. It seemed very realistic and was descriptive. The storyline featured many interesting characters. Main character Val was interesting to follow as she created her novel which in turn seemed to realistic and sets out to determine if it was. She was so creative and strong. I disliked her husband Karl at the start of the novel and it seemed to stick as I finished reading. She deserved better than him. His character really shined through at the start right after the Hurricane. This novel was definitely a fun an interesting read.

The Vampire Queen (Wheel Of Crowns Book 3) by Brandi Elledge

5-stars

The Vampire Queen is book three in this amazing and exciting series. It cannot be read as a standalone and picks up where book two ends. The novels main characters are Tandi and Stephan who are originally introduced in the first two books. Tandi is turned into a vamp by Stephan, the Prince of Vampires, and has a uniqueness not seen in other vamps. She has more of her humanity in place still. An old flame of Stephans, who happens to be the Queen of Vampires, becomes jealous of her and sets out to cause trouble why the two work to avenge the death of a friend and find one of the coveted keys.

Tandi was a magnificently created character. I loved her witty comments and her personality. Stephan was portrayed as tough but that seemed to be a front to hide his feelings for Tandi. I immediately did not like the queen. She fit the antagonist role well.

This novels storyline was easy to follow and the setting for every scene was descriptive and engaging. I think this book is my favorite thus far. I look forward to more in this series.

Demon’s Angel (Satan’s Devils Colorado Chapter Book 2) by Manda Mellett

5-stars

Demon’s Angel can be read as a standalone novel even though it is part of the Satan’s Devils Colorado Chapter series. Its main characters are Violet and Demon. Demon has some back story in book one but it is also explained in this novel.

The storyline was easy to follow and easily caught my attention from the start. Being a mom, Violet and her little one, Theo, tugged at my heart. I disliked her character at first for attempting to abandon her son but my opinion changed as the realization of why was revealed. Demon was an interesting character as well. He had a very tough persona that he would portray most of the time, hiding his soft heart within.

This was a wonderful novel. I recommend it for mature readers due to mention of rape, sexual content, torment, and profanity. I really enjoyed this second book and look forward to more in this series.
