Dia’s Lure (A Solstice Quartet #3) by Catherine Peace

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Dia’s Lure is the third book in the Solstice Quartet Series. This book captured me from the get-go. I had a hard time choosing quotes for everyone. Dia and her friends are amazing.

Dia aka Dane is hiding out from hunters. She is traveling with a Samaritan Group which helps people out. When an explosion happens and she is thrown out of the vehicle, she runs. Then she’s found by others hiding out. Her ex shows up and she finds herself falling for the one who saved her. The quote I chose for Dia is: “You’ll have to try hard, dingo. But yeah, I’ll let you try.”

Kano has been keeping an eye out for Dia since the night of the killing of her mother. When she is found again it takes his breath away. Then he finds himself also falling for Milos. Can he save the two of them? The quote I chose for Kano is: “It’s not. It’s not your fault. Harrington made the decision. He called the hunting party, not you. All you did was exist, love. You existed and you were beautiful, and you still are. Some people just can’t be happy unless they’re causing pain, and he was one of ’em.”

Milos is of a colony. He doesn’t necessarily like strangers. Then Dane and Kano come to his little camp and he can’t help but want them both. Can he survive the whole legend thing? Will he be able to have his happily ever after? The quote I chose for Milos is: “When we left Transylvania, I was a small child. I hadn’t had my first transformation yet, so I rode in a wagon with the other children. Sorina, too. I think Cammie was still a baby. I remember people yelling at us. Torches, pitchforks, guns…the whole deal. As the caravan trundled out of town, they threw rocks at us. One hit me right here. I was lucky. Something about our first transformation causes the anemia. A hit like that might kill me now, but back then…then it just terrified me. These were friends, people whom the vràji had worked side by side with. Parents of children Rina and I had played with.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

Elemental Fire (The Hidden Realms #1) by E.G. Manetti

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Elemental Fire is the first book in The Hidden Realms Series. The book was such a fascinating story. Fairy tales come to life in this book.

Rad is a fire elemental and interested in Sin. Being an Enforcer is hard work, but worth it in the end. Sin helps him in a crisis and he can’t help but repay her. He is intrigued by her the more he gets to know her. The quote I chose for Rad is: “Sin, you fascinate me. Beguile me. But that is not why. You trusted us over your own kind. On nothing but our word. Within the hidden realms, we owe you an act of similar courage or trust. The monetary reward must equate to the value of the debt.”

Sin is a human who can see the Hidden for who they truly are. She is a PI which is how she meets an Imp she later helps break out of jail. She finds Rad interesting and can’t seem to keep him off her mind. The quote I chose for Sin is: “Whoever is sourcing the dark-b knows it’s illegal beyond the veil. Otherwise, they’d be working with you or another warden. If they are caught, under the treaty, they get handed over to the Elders’Council for trial and judgment. The few criminals who have returned after the Elders’Council justice, aged decades in days. I would want a lot more than a fat bank account to risk a big piece of my life.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

Friends with Benies: An AMBW Paranormal Romance (Paris in Springtime #7) by T.B. Bond

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Friends with Benies is an amazing book. It was a short, but sweet story. I’ll definitely be looking for more by the author.

Wednesday is a techno-mage and loves working with her magic. She and her best friend start up a company and haven’t really been apart since. She is in love with her bestie, but doesn’t think it’s possible. The quote I chose for Wednesday is: “Way to look, observe, and gather evidence. You, boar, are buying me a new door. Now eat. You know how you get when you panic shift. You can take in my safe scent and calm yourself down.”

Ryker doesn’t think going on this cruise is going to work out very well. He then runs into someone and finds that his mate has been under his nose the entire time. Now all he has to do is convince her of it. The quote I chose for Ryker is: “That’s fine. I need the protein and electrolytes to etch tonight into memory.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

Master Catteneo: Dark Vampire Romance (Masters of the Consulate #5) by Sylvia Black

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Master Catteneo is the fifth book in the Masters of the Consulate. Each book can be read as a standalone. Characters from the first four books are in this one. The author knows how to write the words we can’t stop reading.

Catteneo is one of the twelve masters. When one of the mates is kidnapped all the Masters come together. He goes to someone he knows only to find his mate. The granddaughter of the contact he has. The quote I chose for Catteneo is: “Do you mind if I take this with us? I have some contacts in the city I will reach out to. I expect Isala will contact you directly with demands. When you’ve got the rest of the team ready, meet me at my estate. Everyone can stay there. It has plenty of room. Meanwhile I want to talk to a few people.”

Alessia knows there are vampires out there. She also has the same power as her grandmother. When her Grandmother tells her that they are coming she understands. What she isn’t expecting is to find her mate. The quote I chose for Alessia is: “You don’t half to explain anything to me, Gramma. I’m sorry I questioned you. I’m just shocked. Why on earth would the vampires want to start a war now? They’re sitting at the top of the hierarchy in terms of power. They have the respect of almost everyone in the underworld. While I’m sure all the factions would love nothing more than to take that power, most people grudgingly respect the vampires for the way they’ve been able to assimilate into the modern world and their ability to work alongside even the Syndicate.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

Queen’s Destiny: Blood Prophecy #1 by Barb Jones

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Queen’s Destiny is the first book in the Blood Prophecy Series. This book is very entertaining and the author knows how to write a fantastic book.

Amber is having these strange dreams. Something is coming and she doesn’t understand what is going on. She keeps spacing out and hearing things that aren’t really being said. The quote I chose for Amber is: “We might do some work together on the digs I’ll be cataloging. How big is your collection? One more bag to go.”

Chloe is the one who is showing Amber around. She knows that something is coming, but isn’t sure what. Then she finds out what it is. The quote I chose for Chloe is: “Okay, Amber, welcome to Seattle. The baggage claim is this way, and I paid a skycap to let me keep the car in the loading zone. Was your flight okay?”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

It is very witty and fun to read! The charisma of the characters really jumps off the page. I can’t lie. Some of it is hard to follow if you haven’t read the other books. Which I have not. But, I still loved the flow of the book and getting to know the characters.

Distant Memories: A Nurse Morgan Series: Book 2 by Kate MacInnis

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Distant Memories follows Distant Heart Sounds. This is the second book in the Nurse Morgan Series. You will absolutely love this book if you love Paranormal Romance.

Morgan is back again and this time there’s a new ghost in her life. Esmeralda or Esmey drapes herself over men whether or not there’s a female companion. Her relationship with Caleb is moving forward and it scares the living heck out of her. The quote I chose for Morgan is: “Why is that wrong? There are only two choices, so it’s not like you haven’t been down this road. Just enjoy the time. Despite the vomiting, you really are glowing.”

Caleb has never felt so right staying with Morgan. He loves working with her and at Good Sam. Savvy has been a good friend to him and he might soon be taking over. He helps Morgan with getting rid of the ghost. The quote I chose for Caleb is: “I’d be willing to bet that I’m more surprised than you are. There isn’t one woman in my past who would ever claim I was a romantic. I’m known for being dark and brooding. A stud in bed, certainly, but a romantic? Never. I actually felt a little silly doing this, but it seemed right.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

5/5 Stars

Distant Heart Sounds (A Nurse Morgan Series #1) by Kate MacInnes

This is the first book by the author that I’ve read, but I will be on the lookout for others. MacInnes has done a phenomenal job with this.

Morgan, a nurse, is now able to see things she hasn’t been able to before. Thanks to a near-death experience she knows she has roommates. The quote I chose for Morgan is: “No, it’s actually good logic. Who’s to say? Maybe I need to do more research.”

Caleb, a new doctor in town, meets a fantastic nurse. He invites her out after having a chat with her. They have something in common. They can see auras. The quote I chose for Caleb is: “You won’t believe this, but it’s almost 5:30 p.m. Would you like to go to a local place and have an early dinner? We’ve eaten so much junk today, I genuinely need some solid food to balance all the bad. How does that sound?”

Highly recommended for paranormal romance lovers.

The Cross of Ciarán (The Cross of Ciarán Book 1) by Andrea Matthews – Review by Amy Brennan

The Cross of CiaranThe Cross of Ciaran by Andrea Matthews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s like a tv series that you don’t want to start until you know you’re able to binge watch the entirety of that show. That’s what I was waiting for with this series and have been not so patiently waiting for the day to come where I could start. I always find that the Pilot, or the first installment in a series is the hardest to get through, with all the character development, world building, and plot coming into focus, but didn’t find it difficult to become addicted to flipping the pages of this novel. This author has very clearly put her love of writing into Ciaran, Caitlin, as well as Ciaran’s newfound chosen family, and supporting characters and in checked all the boxes for me.

There’s nothing like a slow burn romance amidst a fifteen hundred year old Celt that is keeping a heavily guarded secret, Priests that want nothing more than to please the higher power that they believe in but also do what’s right for who they care and love, and the mystery of the past, that will surely become more apparent as the series progresses. I thought to myself, okay, I’ll set aside an hour or two a night to read, which then turned into several hours the past few days, and here we are, swiftly moving onto The Book of Carraig. Once this is all done, I look forward to exploring more of her work, highly recommend!

Romance under Aquarius: Stargazing Series #1 by Danielle Jacks

This is not the first book I’ve read by the author. Romance under Aquarius is a fantastic read and will leave you wanting more. This is the first book in the Stargazing Series. There were four main characters, but two that stuck out the most.

Maris is a merperson and can’t wait to get married. Her best friend is concerned about her doing an arranged marriage, but it’s what her family had planned for her. She then catches her best friend and future husband in bed together. The quote I chose for Maris is: “Don’t feel bad for me. Ryn seems like a nice merman.”

Kasper will do anything to save his brother. Including finding a merperson to help him out. He doesn’t want to trust her, but it becomes inevitable once he gets to know her. He wants to pursue a relationship with her, but isn’t sure where to start. The quote I chose for Kasper is: “Fine. Yes. I’m jealous . Are you happy now?”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.
