Destined by Brenda K. Davies
Terrified of becoming mated like her parents, Isabelle has locked herself away in order to avoid their fate. She is content to stay sheltered amongst her family, hidden away as she lives out her days away from the human race, and the world. Despite her determination to remain alone, her world is rocked when a person from her parent’s past arrives at their door, bringing with them the powerful, and stunning vampire Stefan. Though Stefan is not expecting to arrive at a nest full of vampires, he is immediately drawn to the vibrant, often defiant, and willful Isabelle. To his surprise, Isabelle does everything in her power to avoid him, and her desire for him. No matter how hard she tries to fight it though, Isabelle begins to realize that trying to deny her destiny may just destroy them both, as there are some things that cannot be stopped. But just as she begins to let her guard down, Stefan’s dark and deadly past catches up to him and threatens to destroy them both.
This is the second book in this series and lord I wish I had read the first. Did it take away from this read that I hadn't. NO. In fact I loved this book. Isabelle is my kinda girl. I loved her from the moment I started reading. I liked Stefan too. He was a fun character to get into. But what I really loved and why I want to run and get book one, is the family of vampires that live with Isabella. Her parents, brothers and sisters, and the stooges. I freakin' loved every minute of the relationships between them all. I want a story for each of them. Great read!

The Protectors Damon by Teresa Gableman
Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets and it’s their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.
As a social worker, Nicole Callahan fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There’s a war now as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society and the children are at the heart of it all.
Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.
Ok, lets start off with saying this book was HOT. It was action packed and kept me entertained. I'm not going to lie though, there were a few spots that had me back track on how much I loved this read. One was particularly gross! Belly buttons... um NO. Looking back its funny now that it stood out to me so much. You got the Oh my factor on that one. I also thought this book might be a twilight rerun at first, but you quickly proved me wrong. Overall great read and I look forward to reading the next books in the series.

A Summoner's Tale by Victoria Danann
Named BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL of 2013, REVIEWERS' CHOICE AWARDS, the Paranormal Romance Guild.
While the devastatingly seductive ex-vampire, Istvan Baka, is forced to relive his tragic life as human and confront his past as vampire, a very pregnant Elora Laiken faces an ultimate test of survival when she's attacked by assassins from her dimension of origin. While their friends and mates mount respective searches and epic rescue efforts, these two friends and almost lovers, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle alone through their own personal tortures in pain and darkness.
This is the story of Heaven McBride, a Black Swan demonologist who was temporarily assigned as Baka's assistant. When he turns up missing, Heaven agrees to submit to hypnosis to help the rescue effort with possible clues about his disappearance buried in her subconscious mind. During those sessions, she proves that love can wait patiently through lifetimes for the chance to blossom and be fulfilled. She also inadvertently reveals that she's been hiding a unique musical talent. She's the once-in-a- generation summoner, who can call any creature with her flute. Even vampires.
This is the first book in the series that I have read, and that is a shame. It is the third book written in the black swan series and I know I will be rushing to read the first two after reading this. I loved everything about this read. The multiple dimensions, paranormal aspects, kick ass characters and more. I loved how the story was told too. I was definitely intrigued and will be following this series from now on. An awesome read that I couldn't get enough of. I love discovering a new series to fall in love with.
About the Author
My first book was published May of 2012.
I write cross-genre with uniquely fresh perspectives on paranormal creatures, characters, and themes. Add a dash of scifi and a flourish of fantasy to enough humor to make you laugh out loud and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. My heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, or past life therapists. My heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners - usually - whether they be elves, demons, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires.
My first book, My Familiar Stranger, was nominated for Best Paranormal Romance of 2012 by both Reviewers' Choice and Readers' Choice Awards. All of my books have opened on the Amazon Best Sellers list and earned Night Owl Reviews TOP PICK awards.
For books published in 2013, Black Swan won three awards. 1. Best Paranormal Romance Series 2. Best Paranormal Romance Novel - A SUMMONER'S TALE 3. Best Vampire~Shifter Novel - MOONLIGHT.
If you're interested in me personally, I am also a classically trained musician who defected to Classic Rock music. I'm the utility player which means I play rhythm guitar, keyboards, sing back ups and a few leads. My band has covered everything (note for note) from Styx to Led Zepellin to Rush. We have played biker bars at 3:00 am to 10 people and played Warrior Dash to 35,000.
I live in The Woodlands, Texas which is why I sometimes joke about being the witch in the woods. Married. Four children. One very smart, mostly black German Shepherd dog.
Luca's Magic Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans, Book 2)
An erotic paranormal romance...
Sexy vampire, Luca Macquarie doesn’t do love; especially not with humans. Yet, ever since he rescued Samantha Irving, he can’t deny the enigmatic attraction he’s developed for the alluring mortal woman. Concerned for her safety, he’s determined to bring Samantha back to her coven. His mission is to go find the novice witch and bring her home, nothing more, nothing less; falling for her is not supposed to be part of the plan.
Samantha doesn’t want to be a witch, yet that’s exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha’s worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.
In the Big Easy, Samantha and Luca embark on a spellbinding journey, searching for a mystical amulet that promises to release her obligation from an ancient, lethal vampire who’s been threatening her life. With cryptic clues and clandestine allies, will Luca and Samantha destroy the dangerous amulet before others acquire it, setting forth a chain of catastrophic consequences? And will Luca give into his erotic desire for the witch who magically captures heart?
This story absolutely captivated me. I was hooked from the first page. I love reading paranormal. I love reading stories set in New Orleans. This was both. There was mystery and romance. I was completely caught up in the characters lives. I loved Luca. He was a great male lead. Samantha was equally as strong. The entire story line had me hook, line and sinker. This is one of those stories I just want to gush over, but can barely get a coherent sentence out.

DARKNESS SERIES, 1 & 2 - K.F. Breene
Sasha has always known she was different, but now she also knows that the shadow men she’s seen all her life, are real.
With a life goal of fitting in, Sasha hopes her strange abilities will finally make true friendship a possibility. Unfortunately, her magic doesn’t function like everyone else’s. What she thought would make her belong, sets her apart now more than ever.
Stefan, all but promised to a different woman, has tried to keep his mind on his duties instead of the irresistible and free-spirited human. But when she is threatened, he can’t keep his distance any longer. He realizes he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe, and more importantly, make her his.
Just when one thing clicks into place, another spirals out of control. Stefan’s clan isn’t the only group that would benefit from an extremely rare type of magic. And their enemies will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Book 1 Review:
I think this is going to be one of those books you either love or hate. Lucky for me I LOVED it. The idea behind the shadow people are intriguing. I loved Sasha's character. I must say now though, this book is not for the faint of heart. Breene writes these scenes beautifully and not overly graphic, but it's for the 18+ crowd. A great read and a series I will definitely be following. I want and need to know what happens next.
Book 2 Review:
Wow, this book is so different from the first book! I couldn't believe it. I was expecting more of the darkness, instead I got a completely different version. It made the read that much more enjoyable, I think. I missed some of the things that made the first book so taboo (for lack of a better word). I really enjoyed the story line in this book. I got my favorite characters back and completely fell for Stefan in this read. Again, I loved the wit and humor and of course the steamy scenes. ;) This series is crazy good.
About the Author
A wine country native, I moved to San Francisco for college just shy of a decade ago to pursue a lifelong interest in film. As I settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while I thought making and editing films was great fun, I lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, my career path quickly changed direction. My next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the dining room table while filling out a form. For some reason, my young self wanted to be an Accountant. Thinking on it now, I wonder how I had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction I finally took.
While I could wrangle numbers with the best of 'em, and even though I wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, my mind got as stuffy as my daily routine. It was here that I dusted off my creative hat and began writing.
Honeymoon Bites by Sharon Hamilton
Anne caught her husband cheating before their wedding cake was cut, so she takes her honeymoon in Tuscany alone. Bitten by a vampire on her wedding night, she is left for dead, until Marcus Monteleone, her 300 year old fated mate, rescues her. Will they be able to navigate Marcus’ rocky and dangerous past to have an immortal future together?
This book had me on the edge of my seat. First let me start off by saying this book started out phenomenally. I was hooked from the beginning. I loved that Anne went on her honeymoon despite everything. Now what happens after that is twist after twist after plot twist. I was so caught up in this read. I couldn't put it down. I was beginning to think that Anne and Marcus would never get their happily ever after, but at last the story ended. I loved every second and can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next.

Midnight Captive by Arial Burnz
After seven years, James Knightly returns as a master swordsman, ready to captain a ship and wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. Waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on threatening the family James holds most dear–the MacDougals. Broderick MacDougal is lured away from his family with the promise of a way to protect them from his clan enemy. Broderick unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for...his wife Davina.
I am usually not a fan of the historical type reads, of any kind really. However Burnz writes so beautifully that the time and place really have not hold over my opinion. I really enjoyed this read. This is the second book in the series and I recommend reading the first before you read this one. I loved James and Cailin's love story. They find their way even through all the angst and turmoil surrounding them. I was happy to see and learn more about Broderick and Davina's love and what might lay ahead for them.

The Nightlife San Antonio by Travis Luedke
Vampires, Mafia & Mayhem: The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.
All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.
EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can't explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.
She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn't know from who. She only knew she wasn't safe.
Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn't long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both...
Wow. This read is action packed and graphic. I loved every second of it. Adrian and La Renia are on the run! Adrian is a sexy EMT and La Renia is a vampire with no memory. This book starts off with a blood bath and keeps up the tempo of action and sex. From beginning to end you will be on the edge of your seat. A book that is hard to put down. If the rest of the series is anything like this read I will be rushing to get my hands on each new book.

Blood and Snow: volumes 1-8 by RaShelle Workman
Every thousand years the Vampire Queen selects a new body, always the fairest in the land, and this time she's chosen Snow White.
Snow isn't an ordinary girl. She doesn't know that yet.
When Snow gets bitten by a Hunter, her life is thrown into a whirlwind of change where instead of worrying about what to eat, she has to fight not to drink the blood of fellow high school students. She becomes a revenant - not quite human, not quite vampire.
With the help of an eccentric old Professor, his seven adoptive sons, and her best friend, Snow learns to control her blood craving. Sort of. She drinks a bloodlust tea, but she'd rather drink from her Hunter.
Or, a human.
She also discovers a whole other realm, one filled with fairies, dragons, and magic. And not only does the Vampire Queen want her, but there's a pendant called the Seal of Gabriel created for Snow by the Vampire Queen's twin sister.And Snow's supposed to use it to restore balance to all magical creatures. Including vampires.
I loved this series. I want more and can't wait to jump into the next volume of Snow and Blood. I really enjoyed the characters and the story line behind everything. There was mystery and the paranormal. I love the paranormal. I loved Snow's characters. She is strong and easily a character that I got behind. There was a slew of supporting characters that I really enjoyed and overall couldn't get enough of this read.

Passionate Bites Review:
I love when authors get together and put a box set together for us. I found new series I would love to sink my teeth into. I found new book boyfriends that I couldn't get enough from. This box set had everything I loved. From the typical paranormal read that I love to the hot and steamy taboo paranormal I can't get enough of. A wide range of authors that bring so much to the table. Even better, it's 99 cents. You can't beat a deal like that, especially when these stories are so great. It was hard to put this down. Things like food and sleep were all but forgotten as I devoured each page of this awesome box set.
