The Winter Laird_Cover

Synopsis:

THE PRESENT

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O’Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters…just not her own. She’s convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation―but she didn’t expect it to be in 13th century Ireland.

THE PAST

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she does not want to be there.

THE FUTURE

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

Dark Alpha’s Claim by Donna Grant ~*Release Day Blitz*~

Dark Alpha’s Claim 

(Reaper Series, #1)

by Donna Grant

 

Blurb:

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you…

My whole existence is based on taking what Death wants. Born to eliminate Fae guilty of unforgivable crimes, my reckless, wild nature makes me the perfect assassin to carry out Death’s bidding. I’ve seen more sinister and violent dealings than anyone could ever imagine. But it was the sight of her face that stopped me cold. I’ve never wanted a woman-never mind a human-so badly; never felt my heart, hardened by death, burn brighter and hotter until it burst into flames. She is everything I desire. The kind of woman that compels you to stake your claim on her, to let the world know that she’s yours. A Reaper saving her life will only attract danger, but I vow to protect her at all costs from the Fae that hunt her, and keep safe the woman who has claimed me, body and soul.

He made me fall.

As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.

But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.

Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

~*REVIEW*~ Limitless by Danielle Ione

Limitlessebook (1)

Publisher: Booktrope Publishing
Release Day: October 1st, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense

Synopsis:

Knox appears to have the perfect life. He’s a photographer, living on the beach in sunny southern California, and a father of an intelligent little boy. Although, not everything is as it seems. Underneath it all, Knox lives a lonely life, filled with meaningless moments leading up to the 60 minutes he spends with his son every day. Until he met Emery Jane. Suddenly, the black and white world he lives in becomes brighter and the void of loneliness disappears. But, Knox holds a secret, one that could crush the promises of a future with the one woman he has grown to love, and the son he would do anything for.

Six years ago, Emery Jane ran. She ran from her past, from the people she loved, the secrets that were buried six feet under, and from her own living, breathing nightmare. Emery Jane longs for a life of normalcy and living in paradise seems like the perfect place to find it. She never expected to meet Knox, or his beautiful little boy, and she certainly didn’t expect to love them so fiercely. As she embraces the unexpected she can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, showing her that life doesn’t always have to be so unnerving. But Emery Jane knows that with secrets come destruction, and that destruction is knocking on her door.

As their pasts collide, inviting havoc into their lives, their limits are tested as they try to survive. Will the evils that chase them win, bringing everything crashing down around them? Or, can they both fight through the darkness and live a life of happiness?

My Review:

 

This book was very different for me. After requesting a review copy from Xpresso Book Tours, I kind of thought to myself “What have you gotten yourself into?”. Not in a necessarily bad way, because that is one heck of a synopsis. But it was the fear of trying something new.

 

Tish Thawer’s WITCHES OF BLACKBROOK was intriguing from the beginning. I’m a huge fan of the paranormal novels (obviously, since I’m writing in that genre), but something about her teasers scared me a bit. So once I cracked open that first page, I was relieved to find that it wasn’t going to be so horribly dark that I couldn’t stand it. Let’s face it, some of the witchy books can get a little…too much sometimes.

 

There was a great balance in this book with lighthearted humor, suspense, mystery, romance, and friendship. I found myself constantly questioning what would happen next, which is always a great sign. Although I had guessed what would happen (because of the synopsis), I loved finding the twists and turns as they came along.

 

The characters were very strong. I enjoyed Trin despite her sometimes bland personality. She was strong, loyal, and loving. For her to encounter what she did and still come out of it as herself is pretty revealing of her character. Seeing the different flashbacks and understanding the characters was essential, and I think that Tish did a really great job of revealing just enough each time.

 

I wouldn’t call this book too much of a ‘steamy romance’. There are romance elements, but it primarily focuses on the suspense and story-line. Not necessarily a bad thing, since I LOVE a good story-line. But I just think it’s essential some of my readers know it because I read a lot of steamy romance lol.

 

Overall, WITCHES OF BLACKBROOK was a very interesting read, and I would recommend it to my readers who enjoy a great paranormal story-line with lots of revealing plot twists.
