I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)

Review: Kiss of a Dragon

Kiss of a Dragon Kiss of a Dragon by Alisa Woods
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

really enjoyed this new series.
lucian is a dragon prince, bound to find himself a mate to bond with and have a cute little baby dragonling, all this to double his lifespan and uphold a treaty with the fae world.
he set his eye on arabella. something about her stirs his heart but he's dead set on not falling in love with the woman. he just needs her to fall in love with him.
his little trickery only results in her being very angry with him and that's the start of a thrilling ride of acceptance, love and some drama along the way.

really enjoyed the start of this series. it was heartbreaking at times. seeing the evident love shine through, yet they don't want to give in.

a good book to bring with you on holiday!

Review: Bloodlines

Bloodlines Bloodlines by Tabatha Kiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

so much is happening that for once i won't tell the start of it. but one event leads to a war between families and continents. i was happy to learn how a certain character we know from previous books has made his escape! (even telling this is not even telling!)
you get sucked in from the moment the book starts 12 years ago and then moves forwards to the now.
the pain, the heartache, the brutality, the killings... it's like the other three books were a build up to this one even if timewise you could start with this one and then read the others.

a must have if you loved the Snake Eyes books!!

Review: Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance)

Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance) Detective Bear (Bear Shifter Paranormal Romance) by Scarlett Grove
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

don't know what it is, but i always like scarlett grove's books. this one ain't no different.
Gauge has been investigating the crystal problem for months and he's finally making progress, so much so that he's able to infiltrate them. just as he's about to walk out he gets a message on his phone, he's been matched on mate.com. he knows he can't meet up right now but he also doesn't want to not respond. looking at the pictures of his possible mate has his heart beating double.
lola lockheart has been forced by her stepbrother to cut crystal. she's not to be spoken to, she can't leave and his hands are way too loosely groping her at every chance he gets. her one escape and connection with the outside world is a cellphone she keeps hidden. out of curiosity she reads up on mate.com and even signs up. if he would know about this all she wouldn't last a day! her nightmare comes true when her phone beeps just as her stepbrother is in her tent. she'd been matched.
everything starts going wrong. there is a new guard, one who can't stay away, one who's she's drawn too like a moth to a flame. when the guards tells her who he really is and he's getting her out of there she insists on getting a token from her late mother.

and then the story really gets interesting and the pace picks up as we move to the conclusion of this story.

another wonderful addition to the Bear Patrol series. knowing a few more are coming makes me one happy reader! on pins and needles untill the nest one.

Review: Gambling on Her Bear

Gambling on Her Bear Gambling on Her Bear by Anna Lowe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

karen is a dragon shifter who's convinced she can't fly, is rather impulsive and holds a little bit of magic.
when she has er eyes set on a blood diamond she wants to "take back", her impulsive nature not only lands her in the hands of vampire but also in the path of bear shifter Tanner Lloyd. he's infiltrated the vampire coven for his own reasons. as head of security, he gets to handle to new bundle of trouble karen, the same woman he had the best night of his life with.
he wants to help karen (and he does) but he also can't forget about his own agenda. he meets up with her again and puts all his cards on the table, hoping to work something out.
in the middle of all of this both are fighting (and losing) the attraction toward each other.

a thriller ride from start to finish. karen and her dragon are simply a hott, their conversations are too funny at times. Tanner and his bear: just the same. it really was a joy to read about them, even better that it was set in the same world were we got to know some of the characters in the first place!
a must have if you enjoyed the CIV series by multiple authors.
