GOOD MORNING EVERYONE

  Good Thursday all , hope you are nice and warm today and having a good morning before the hustle and bustle starts . Today I have a new to me author and her new novella . PROPHECY CHOSEN ( An Oracle's Path ) by  Shannon Pemrick


                           BOOK BLURB 



A dragon’s trust. A clan divided. A god’s command.

Half-elf Oracle Aviana must complete an impossible task—unify her broken clan. Fractured during conflicts centuries before her time, they’ve lost their ways, causing Aviana’s existence, once seen as sacred, to be a living hell. At twenty years of age, and now an adult according to their customs, all she wants now is for them to see her as worth more than what’s in her blood—and the dragon god, Akorith, has just the plan.

Connected since birth to the mighty entity, his whispers have followed her dreams, speaking of an era long forgotten—one he needs her to revive, or a great darkness will consume them all. To do so, she’ll have to complete a task her mother started before her disappearance: gain the trust of two dragons who now see her as the enemy.

The only problem? She’s not permitted to leave the clan’s territory. If she dares to make any movement outside of town, she’s instantly monitored. And such a task, even from a god, would be seen as treasonous. To make her task even harder, her mixed-blood nature begins altering her physical appearance, ensuring she’ll gain more enemies than allies if she doesn’t learn to conceal or control it.

And when she finally meets these two dragons, whom her mother had come to care for greatly, Aviana must make the most difficult choice of her life…

-----

Note: Like all of Shannon Pemrick’s work, the Oracle’s Path series contains strong language, violence, substance use, love scenes(including LGBTQ pairings), and difficult situations.

                         MY REVIEW 
     Oracle Aviana has a difficult task ahead of her . She has a clan to unite and find her place in the world.
But things aren't as they are . She can't leave the clan's territory she is monitored where ever she goes . Then she meets two dragons who her mother has grown fond of . Will Aviana make the choose that will help her or will the choice be the most difficult of her life . 

   Aviana is a very strong character , she has had a hard time of it but she comes out fighting and kicking , She is half elf and half dragon. She is trying to fit in but she is meant for more . She is destined to be more .  The characters are well written and complex.  You will love them all as you meet them in the book . The owlcats are my favourite they are so cute . You will love them . 

  This is a quick novella that will take you on an adventure .  The author introduces us to these characters to us and we get invested in them from the beginning . You will care for them and want Aviana to succeed . You will want to jump into the first book after you finish this prequel which I suggest so you can understand what is going on. I did get a little confused in a couple of areas where  I had to reread so I could figure out what was going on . Over all I did enjoy this book and I am going to get the first book in the series to see how things go and read further into their story . So if you want a good dragon book with cool characters and a good story line this is the book for you

OK PEEPS ITS TWO WEEKS TILL CHRISTMAS

 Ok my peeps are you guys ready for Christmas yet . Only two weeks and counting I can't believe it snuck up on us so fast . If you are in search of a series to give the reader on your list. This might be the series for you .  The Sacred Oath Series by Plum Pascal aka HP Mallory. DRAGAN  A reverse harem is the second book in the series .

                          BOOK BLURB 


BOOK TWO in the Sacred Oath Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance Series. Book 1 is ANGEL

I thought I was a pure-bred angel, but I soon find out I’m so much more…

When huge, black, rubbery wings shoot out of my back, I learn I’m part Succubus, part demon.

Even with this epiphany, I’m still no closer to understanding who I am, where I came from, or why I’m missing my memories.

Worst of all, the one person I trusted above all others, Dragan, the King of Shadow, turned on me. You’d think the fact that we both possess shadow magic would bring us closer, but it doesn’t.

Learning I’m a crossbreed, Dragan shuns me. Where once we shared passionate embraces, now he’s coldly suspicious and distant. And the King of Nature, Cambion, treats me even worse, rebuking me with expressions of disgust and rude comments.

Strangely, Baron, the King of Death, is the only one who accepts what I am. He says it’s because we are one and the same—the shadow magic that animates him, also animates me.

Good thing I have an ally in Baron because I’m stranded in an unfriendly world I know little about. Everywhere I turn, enemies are after me, eager to return me to the King of Angels, Variant, who wants me dead.

With the way things are going, I wonder if Dragan and Cambion still believe I’m the answer to defeating Variant or maybe they’re more inclined to deliver me to my fate at Variant’s hands…

Excerpt:

###
Dragan,
The King of Shadow


I’ve fought my closeness with Eilish for this reason. Maybe it’s why I reacted so badly at discovering she’s more than she is—that she’s Succubus. Maybe my reaction was just an excuse to crawl back into my hardened shell, to refuse to be close to her.
No, I tell myself. Your reaction was born from the fact that she fooled you. She seduced you and you fell for it, because that’s what Succubae do.
Yes, I know only too well what Succubae do—how they destroy a man, how they suck from him his very will to live.
It’s hard to be near her, especially when only a few moments ago I was reminding myself how dangerous closeness was. I continue to question who the true Eilish is—an innocent angel, or a highly deceptive demon?

###
Cambion,
The King of Nature


She appears so alone out here. So small. Not the creature I’ve become so wary of, but a confused girl trying to navigate a world of which she knows very little.
Regardless, my sympathy is in short supply, and I refuse to reveal the softer side of my feelings toward her. Ever since Variant’s betrayal, trust is not a commodity in which I’m willing to trade.

###
Baron,
The King of Death


She’s clearly a crossbreed. And as a crossbreed, I’m convinced, she’s all the more powerful, able to draw on the powers of light and dark. Furthermore, I must also admit this darkness within her appeals to the darkness within me. I knew there was something about her that called to me.
Unlike Dragan, I’m not attracted to her angelic nature. Her lightness might entrance him, but it does nothing for me.

###
Eilish


Large hands grip my wrists as the right side of my face bashes into a large and broad chest. When I look up, I find Dragan glaring down at me.
I’m relieved.
He’s furious.
“What are you thinking?” he demands. He doesn’t drop his hold around my wrists but continues to clutch them, as though he’s afraid I’ll take off if he releases me…
                        MY REVIEW 
  Dragan is the king of shadow and he and Eliish have a bond that has now been broken because of what she is part angel and part succubae .  They were so close but now he has pushed her away and into the arms of another king sent to keep her safe . Will they be able to get past the past of Dragan and will they be able to keep her safe . That is their destiny and they will win but will their hearts come out in one piece . 

 This is Dragan's book and boy what a book it is . I really liked this character from the very first moment I read him in book one . He is sexy oh so sexy and brooding . We also find out more about what happened in his past and why he ended things with Elish.  There are moments in this book i really just want to pull his head out of his well you all know where . shake him and tell him to get his head back in the game .  Elish this poor girl is now more confused then she was in the first book. She still doesn't have her memories but she has found out that she does have a demon side to her . You just really want to either shake her and tell her to toughen up or wrap her in a blanket and hide her from the world.  Cambion and Baron are also back . Cambion well he really needs to lighten up a bit or he is going to get the slap upside the head . Yes you can tell these two men need and attitude adjustment . Baron actually grew on me in this book . He has grown and Revenant aka Baron is a really complicated man . You don't know if he is really bad or good . These characters are so well written and complex . They work well together . 

   In this book we learn so much about Dragan and why he is acting the way he is  and pushing Elish away . The author takes us on a very bumpy ride through this book . Your emotions will be all over the place. One moment you will be laughing along with the characters and the next moment you will have a tear rolling down your cheek or blushing from the hotness that is pouring out of the book.  The author will draw you in and make you care about  these characters before she rips out our heart and then repairs it . I read this book in a evening . I couldn't put it down. So if you want a great series for the winter this series is for you . Hot sexy brooding men and the woman who is more and could love them with all her heart . If she gets her memories back.

WOW ONLY 17 DAYS AND COUNTING

  Good Sunday all hope all is alright and you aren't running all over the place Christmas shopping . Today I have a Christmas novella for you from Betty Shreffler and her book COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS .


                          BOOK BLURB 


It’s just a bet.
Ten days until Christmas and all I have to do is avoid my roommate’s delightfully wrapped package.
When the countdown to Christmas is over, I’ll be collecting my own present—a generous stack of pretty green bills.
It doesn’t matter that every time he looks at me with those gorgeous hazel eyes, my knees quake.
It doesn’t matter how every time he takes his shirt off, my heart skips a beat.
Despite what my body wants, I know to keep this charming heartbreaker in the friend zone.
This should be an easy ten days, that is until my roommate shares his best kept secret.
Now the countdown to Christmas has begun, and all he wants for Christmas is me.

                       MY REVIEW 
   All it is is a bet and only for ten days. Thats the montra that Sophia keeps telling herself as the man of her dreams moves into her spare room . The brother of her boss and a co worker . Jaxson is a walking dream of sex appeal and sweetness . Can they keep their hands , lips and other body parts off each other until christmas or will the boss be right and will Sophia get the love she deserves and needs . 

  The characters in this novella are well written but I just feel like they could of been a little more complex to bring out more of them . Jaxson well he is cocky and he knows it . He really is almost in most people's eyes a playboy . There is a softness around him I kind of wished the author would of brought out a little more . Sophia well to me sometimes she just comes off a little naive but she does have a heart of gold . She could of held off falling for Jaxson. They are good characters and I just want them to be a little more flushed out . 

  This is a fast little read that you can read while making  your Christmas turkey . The author takes us on a fun filled little journey at Christmas . The characters are written well and the story line is a fun read . You will have a few blushing moments where the kindle will start to get hot in your hands . I just felt a little flat and I know its a novella but I just think that it could of been flushed out just a little bit more and maybe had some conflict before they found their happily ever after . Saying that though over all I  truly enjoyed this fast little read and would say if you want a sexy little read for the holiday season check it out

HAPPY RELEASE DAY TO VICTORIA ZAK

Good Friday morning everyone . Today is release day for a new series by Victoria Zak . EINAR Breaking the Sea ( Lords of Valhalla book 1)

                            BOOK BLURB

 
He had something to prove.

Einar, the youngest son of Jarl Rognvald ambitiously sails to uncharted territory to prove he can do the impossible: regain his family’s land from the merciless, pirating Danes. When the Danes don’t leave peacefully, it will take an act of Odin for Einar to maintain his iron grip across the perilous island.
Stranded in the Kingdom of Alba after a surprise attack, little does Einar know that Thor’s hammer is about to strike his heart. A brief encounter with a warrior tribe, led by a red-haired lass and her sword, could be his undoing.

A warrior at heart

If watching her father die by the hands of Northmen wasn’t bad enough, the newly crowned king of Alba has bartered a truce with them. Maeve Donald, chieftain of her clan, would rather kill the Norsemen than be forced to be allies, but when the Danes capture her brother, they may hold the key to saving him.

Attracted to the dark, brooding Viking Einar, Maeve’s loyalty to her clan is tested when he offers a plan to rescue her brother. To save him, she must reconcile a lifetime of loathing with her unwanted desire for a heathen—or risk losing everything she loves.

                           MY REVIEW 
    Einar a young Viking warrior is doing the impossible and sailing back to get his homelands back from the Danes that will not leave . After a storm he and his mans are stranded on the aisle of Alba and is struck in the heart by a fierce warrior princess and her tribe of warriors . Maeve is attracted to the brooding Viking but is scared to give her heart away after watching her father die . Will they be able to find each other before its too late and will their love bring them together or push them apart. 

    Ok I am just going to say it right here right now Einar is swoon worthy . He is strong and oh so sexy . He is brooding but underneath he honestly has a heart of gold who will keep those he loves safe .  Maeve she is feisty and wants to avenge her fathers death. She is also hurting deep inside . She wants to love but is scared to . She can fight just as good as any man in her clan . They are such well written characters on their own . Together they are unstoppable . I truly loved these characters and the all the characters in this book . There are a few to mention but you will fall in love one or all the characters . 

   Ok I have read other Viking stories but never liked them as much as I did this story. The characters are well written and complex , you can't help but fall in love with them . The story is complex and you get sucked in from the very first chapter . The author takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat . There are moments where you actually want to smack each of the main characters upside the head cause they are being so stubborn.  Your kindle will also get a little bit hot with some of the scenes . There were moments I think I actually blushed .  This is going to be a good series and can't wait for the second book in the series . So if you want a great book to read this Christmas check out the heathen and warrior princess in Einar . You will not be disappointed .
