After a devastating breakup in the middle of her summer vacation, Summer Peters knows she needs something to distract her. What better than the arrival of fall, Halloween, and a new client? Though she assumes that Alexander Williams will be a hands-off client, she is surprised to find him very down-to-earth. She’s immediately drawn to him, much to the dismay of his overprotective assistant. When it becomes obvious that he feels the same, she begins to wonder if their meeting was meant to be.

Just when she thinks she could be ready to move on with her life, her ex-boyfriend Jake returns for a second chance. She’s in for even more of a surprise when she learns her nosy, meddling neighbor is actually a psychic pushing to reveal details of her future.

Summer doesn’t know which way to turn as she feels like she’s being pulled in different directions. Between Alexander, his assistant, and her ex-boyfriend, she fears she may not be ready to move on after all. She considers turning to her neighbor for advice but the fear of knowing exactly what the future holds is more frightening than not knowing.

Net Galley Review* Rescued by the Wolf

Friday’s Net Galley Reviews-


book 2 link

Mal wants one thing in life—vengeance against those that deserted him and those who tortured him. But rescuing a wounded girl from their captors, one that wreaks of innocence and fear, makes Mal put his plan on hold. Temporarily. He’ll do what he needs to keep her alive and safe, even if it changes both of their lives forever.

Being stabbed and held in a dark cell wasn’t on Olivia’s top ten list. Her savior isn’t exactly hero material. Angry, scarred, and pissed at the world, he seems to resent being saddled with her. But the longer they’re together, the more firmly a connection forms between them. A connection that binds her to him, his pack, and his world. But that connection may just lead to her death.

Books in the Blood Moon Brotherhood series:
Falling for the Billionaire Wolf and His Baby
Rescued by the Wolf


Lisa Book Review – Book 2 in this series. I would recommend to read book 1 before reading this one-since Mal is in book 1. But this story is really Mal book- Mal book is locked up,torched  and caged but he manages to get out with human Olivia with him. He doesn’t know why but he knows she needs to go with him -but shes hurt and when she is bleeding out he changes her and brings her to his pack. The pack that forgot about him – and hes not sure he can forgive the Alpha. This book is filled with great characters and a new look at pack dynamics. But Mal and Olivia makes it work and there bonding is beautiful thing. Looking forward to the next book in this series I am sure it will be another winner.

Review + So I Married A Sorcerer



book link

“The Embraced series will not let you down! Just like in book one, there is a layered heroine and hero, and supporting characters whose lives add to the story and humor. Set in the past, the series has a decidedly fantasy slant that is easy to follow, which makes this delightfully fun to read. Readers are gifted with a well-executed read with kings, dragons and pirates” —RT Book Reviews

“Readers will be fully invested in this Embraced series!” — Romantic Times on How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

“Readers will relish Spark’s lovingly detailed and memorable tale and look forward to the next.” — Booklist on How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

“[Sparks] has produced a book that I’ll come back to again and again. I’ll be counting down the days till the next girl gets her story.” — Night Owl Reviews on How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

Lisa’s Book Review (Net Galley) -From the Embraced series this story is filled with pirates of the Sea and lost princess this is an epic love story. Brigitta is traveling to her sister when her life changes – she finds out she is a lost princess and kidnapped by a pirate with the power of the Wind. Two people embraced with powers find love and right the wrong and claim a crown lost in a power struggle. Another great book written by this author.   



So I Married a Sorcerer The Embraced Series

By Kerrelyn Sparks

Kerrelyn Sparks is no stranger to the New York Times bestseller list, as her massive fan base couldn’t seem to get enough of her Love at Stake series. Sparks then introduced her extraordinary fantasy romance series, The Embraced, with How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days last March. Set in a medieval mythical world, the series follows a special group of people with powers born when the two moons of the world form an eclipse. Now comes the captivating second installment, SO I MARRIED A SORCERER (St. Martin’s Paperbacks; August 29, 2017), where readers meet Brigitta, our fierce and powerful new heroine.

Growing up on the Isle of Moon, Brigitta knows nothing of her past, except that she is Embraced: born with powers that forced her into hiding. Everything changes when she learns she’s a princess, hidden away from her villainous half- brother who now rules the kingdom. But he knows about Brigitta, and he’ll do anything to get her back. Unless a certain roguish pirate has anything to say about it.

Rupert is both an infamous pirate and a sorcerer with the power to harness the wind. He’s been waiting nineteen years for revenge—and he needs Brigitta to get it. What begins as a kidnapping of the fiery beauty turns into a fierce attraction. But can he win the captive princess’s heart?

Filled with romance, adventure, and a vividly imagined new world, SO I MARRIED A SORCERER is a fantasy in the vein of Game of Thrones with all the fun of The Princess Bride. Audiences will become enthralled with spunky Brigitta and her misunderstood captor, in a world where passion, fantasy, and royal intrigue collide. The characters put everything on the line as it is not just their relationship at stake, but their survival as well.


About the Author Kerrelyn Sparks is best known (so far) for the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list. Visit Kerrelyn on Facebook, Twitter, or her website,

Review * Deacon by Rebecca Royce



Releasing  Tuesday – 8/29/2017


Born into a world gone mad, a world consumed by darkness, Deacon survived, then he learned to fight and finally to love. When the only girl he ever cared about doesn’t chose him, he sets off into the post-apocalyptic world where vampires, werewolves, and the purely evil rule the night. His only companion is a guy who wants to be his friend but comes from the very family Deacon wants to escape.

He has no idea what he’s looking for, until one night in the snow he discovers there is redemption to be found in doing the right thing—even when it’s hard. Maybe he wasn’t the right guy before…but now, he has to be the hero…

Death. Destruction. The End Of Days…For Deacon Evans there is suddenly a future.

*Please note this book is a spinoff of The Warrior Series, which was a young adult post-apocalyptic romance series. Deacon is NOT young adult. This is a book with adult content. You do not need to read The Warrior series to enjoy this book. The characters have aged and things have changed….in the most interesting ways.*

Lisa ‘s Review – Book a gift from the Author. 

A new book from this Author that is set in a Post Apocalyptic world. We are introduced to Deacon a Warrior seeking love,acceptance and purpose in a world filled with death and destruction.   When he finds a town and Lydia he finds all of that and more. This is an exciting book with lots of action but also has a great love story between the two main characters. Hopefully we will see more books in this series -always a pleasures authors books.  Lisa

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

Oh Tequila #1, Standalone
Releasing August 15th from Limitless Publishing!

Tequila, you failed me.

You left me in a terrible haze, and I can’t find my god damn wallet.

Or my left shoe.

How the hell does one lose their shoe?

I have no f*cking clue.

All I know is that my night started out with one thing in mind…to have a little fun.

The problem with that? I can’t remember a damn thing, except one.

Morgan’s soft and needy moans. It’s a sound I will never forget, just thinking about it makes my heart race and my pulse quicken. And I want to hear it over and over again…I craved it.

But Morgan’s a mystery. The harder I try the more she resists. There’s one thing she doesn’t know about me though…I’m not one to give up.

I’ll play her game, I’ll let her think she’s won. But in the end, I will have her.

Because all I need is Just One Chance to prove she’s meant for me…

* I actually read this last night. Its fun and so very hot. With amazing fun loving college cast of characters featuring Morgan a hard working college student and the hot frat boy Xavier. These two are awesome.  Now I have to wait for Reds book. Lisa
