Call Of The Dragon
Elianne Adams

Genre: Paranormal Romance

FREE

Rhia Atkinson is a woman on the run. The same vicious creatures that killed her mother are on the hunt, and she’s the prey. She’d come to terms with her solitary existence until Drake came along, igniting her dreams of family and belonging. Traditions as old as time stand in her way as she tries to convince Drake that he’s her choice for a mate. With the enemy breathing down her neck, she has to figure out how to make it work before she ends up joined to a stranger, or worse, dead.



Drake Sperwell has spent years searching for one woman, the Queen of Avalore. Time is running out. With the survival of their species hanging in the balance, failure is not an option. What he didn’t count on was his reaction to the woman. Or his dragon’s need to claim her as its mate. Denying their chemistry might just kill him, but she’s off limits. Her destiny lies with her true mate in Avalore.

Mason Hall, Navy SEAL, knows all about difficult assignments, but his current mission is one for the record books. Not only must he find a wife—and get her pregnant—or forfeit the ranch his family has prized for generations, he must also convince his three brothers to marry, too—before the year is up. Who knew one city girl and three wayward brothers could put up such a fight?


Regan Anderson can’t wait any longer to meet Mr. Right, so she’s taken matters into her own hands. She’s quit her job, given up her nice apartment and undergone all the preliminary appointments to prepare for artificial insemination. Still, becoming a single mother is daunting, so when she spots Mason’s Wife Wanted ad on the Internet one night, she’s ready for a few laughs. She’s sure the ad must be fake, but when Mason answers back, she soon finds herself wanting more than a long distance relationship.


If Mason can just keep her talking until he makes it home from Afghanistan, he’s sure he can convince Regan he’s her man. But when he whisks her off for a trial run in Chance Creek, they’re in for an unpleasant surprise. The ranch is in ruins, the house has been stripped, and they’re going to have to work day and night to beat Mason’s deadline to win it back.


Can two strangers pull together against all odds? Or is this mission doomed to fail?

Coming Attractions Available For Pre-Order


SHADOW FIRES

Catherine Spangler

Release date: June 8, 2015

Preorder available now!
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XJ1653I

Jenna dan Aron, a Shielder, lives a solitary existence, shunned by her people because she has visions and can see the future. She’s even foreseen her own destiny: to be a human offering, a mate for a savage Leor warlord.

When two Shielder colonies need to be rescued, the Leors who are their only hope demand a bride for their leader in return. Knowing she can’t deny fate, Jenna steps forward.

The Leors are a hybrid race and only part human. Arion of Saura finds mating outside his race abhorrent, but he has no choice, as his kind faces extinction. His life is ruled by hard logic and physical prowess, with no room for softness or emotion. Bound to him, Jenna faces a life of barbarism with a mate who seems more beast than man. In the relentless heat of the wild Sauran desert, Jenna and Arion wage a battle of wills, until they discover that the heart is mightier than any weapon—and that love can forge shadow and fire together.

I've long been a fan of the Shielder series from Ms. Spangler, so my expectations were pretty high.


I read the first page with my fingers crossed that I wouldn't be disappointed, and I wasn't. With incredibly deft handling, Ms. Spangler managed to make the reader feel every emotion Jenna had, all the worry, trepidation, and the sadness. Once on Saura, Jenna had to battle her dislike and mistrust, but you could see the budding romance to come, all in the subtle details. Each chapter moved the story forward, providing glimpses into each of the main character's state of mind.

The hero, Arion is formidable at first, even a little scary in true alpha fashion, but soon we learn he's made of more than sheer muscle and arrogance.

I won't give away spoilers, but I can promise lovers of SFR and Ms. Spangler will cheer when they finish Shadow Fires. I know I did. Is it too early to rub my hands together in anticipation for book six in the series?* ;)

*Please note that an ARC of this book was provided free of cost for review, but in no way influences my opinion. Honestly, few things do. Just ask Bear. lol


Hey Big Spender
Tahoe Tessie Mysteries #2
Gemma Halliday and T. Sue VerSteeg

Release date: October 13, 2015

iBook: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/hey-big-spender/id988657174

When Tessie King inherited the Royal Palace Hotel, Lake Tahoe's biggest resort, she inherited a cranky board of directors along with it. A board that is demanding higher revenues, or Tessie's out. Faced with the possibility of losing her father's legacy, Tessie turns to her staff to help her come up with a plan: film the season finale of Battle Buffet, the hottest cooking competition show on TV, at the resort. It's a scheme sure to bring in the big bucks.

But is also brings big trouble. When one of the casino's wealthiest clients is found dead on the gaming floor, and the killer comes up incognito on the security footage, everyone is a suspect—from the television crew to the blue haired retirees at the slots. Tessie teams up with her stepmother-turned-BFF and her snowboarding teenage crush in a race against the clock to repair the casino's reputation, dodge mob accusations from the hot FBI agent on the case, and track down a killer before any more of her big spenders end up sleeping with the fishes.
Love the Tahoe Tessie series and have Hey Big Spender on order. The book sounds like my kind of fun whodunnit romp.

Friday Finds: PNR Dragons

There's just something about dragons and dragon shapeshifters. Maybe it's the primitive reptilian part of our brain being activated, or the idea of being an virgin offering (yeah right, go on and laugh) to a lusty dragon shifter, but there is an almost magical connection to these mythical beasts that cannot be denied.

My own dragon tale, Open Season, is less fantasy and more science fiction based, but it's definitely romance.

As a reader, I cannot get enough sexy dragons and am so glad I discovered a neat deal on the book below. Check it out and pick it up before they raise the price, because right now it's only .99¢!

Serpent's Kiss
Deborah Cooke

Genre: Paranormal Romance
.99¢ sale price ends May 12, 2015

One spark can banish every shadow in his heart.

The dragon shape shifter Thorolf is known for an impressive lineage, raw power in battle, and the impulsive indulgence of his appetites. The last has made him an outcast from his fellow Pyr, and even his hunt for their dangerous opponent, the Slayer Chen, hasn’t helped. Seduced by Chen’s ally Viv Jason, Thorolf finds himself drawn into a trap, as bait to lure his fellow Pyr to extinction.

The only one to come to his aid is a woman he already knows to be a thief—does he dare to trust her with not just his own life but the survival of his kind?

Chandra has planned for centuries for a battle against evil that she knows will determine the world’s future. She’s never wasted time on the pleasures of the physical realm, much less experienced passion—until the firestorm sparks between herself and Thorolf, demanding more from her than she ever expected to give. Will the firestorm provide new power, or be a dangerous distraction that gives Chen the chance to triumph over the Pyr forever?

This edition includes a list of The Next Generation, as well as excerpts from Firestorm Forever and Fallen.
