The Hidden Kingdom: Kingdom of the White Sea Book 3 by Sarah M. Cradit – New Release

The Hidden Kingdom: Kingdom of the White Sea Book 3 is now available!

~Synopsis~

The perilous and provocative world of Kingdom of the White Sea, by USA Today bestselling fantasy author Sarah M. Cradit, comes to a startling conclusion in The Hidden Kingdom.

A kingless crown will fall. A crownless kingdom will rise.

It all began with a desperate demand from a broken crown. Four brides. Four Reaches. Unquestionable and absolute fealty from the mothers and fathers who were given no choice but to comply. A startling sequence of events followed, with stunning repercussions that reached across the entire realm.

Now, the king is dead. The would-be brides have forged their own destinies—some for the better, others for worse. Not all who started this dance will finish it. Those left will wear the lingering scars with a mix of pride and remorse.

From his stolen throne, Oldwin rules with a hand that grows shakier by the hour, as his once unparalleled magic dwindles. His grasp on power is reliant upon his truths remaining hidden by the shadows, just beyond the reach of the fraught kingdom.

But Oldwin is not the only powerful sorcerer in the kingdom. There are others who would see the terrible circle of their traitorous past come to a decisive end. Their moonlight maneuvering saved the life of Dain Rhiagain, and from his line the last sprig of hope remains: a chance to save the kingdom… to save all the worlds.

Dain’s three children, each raised in obliviousness, must now prepare to confront the staggering truth of why they were born, and what they must now do, if the kingdom is to survive the final days ahead.

But theirs is not the only sacrifice required. The dying words of an old man will stir one man and his Reach toward a new destiny, one that will decide the fate of all the worlds…

After I Run (Immortal Billionaires Book 3): A Billionaire Romance by Melissa Sercia – New Release

After I Run (Immortal Billionaires Book 3): A Billionaire Romance is now available!

~Synopsis~

The truth can set you free but sometimes fate has other plans…

★★★★★

Harley

Clever. Thief. Liar

This was supposed to be the last job. The big score. If only I’d known that hacking into Cassius Reed’s account would spin my life into chaos. All I wanted was a big payday and the resources to find my birth parents. Now I was Cassius’s prisoner and I had information he wanted. To make matters worse, he was sexy as hell. Just one look into his eyes and I was tempted to spill all my secrets. But the man I worked for was even more dangerous than Cassius and if I snitched, there would be two immortals that wanted to punish me.

Cassius

Immortal. Billionaire. Werewolf

All I wanted to do was find the hacker and ruin them. But I wasn’t expecting her. Harley is smart, beautiful, and full of secrets. I’m an alpha without a mate and I swore I’d never fall in love again but I’m drawn to her. She awakens a part of me that has long been buried. I should find out who she’s working for but all I can think about is how badly I want to claim her. And when pieces of her past start to intersect with mine, I know I can’t let her out of my sight.

When Cassius and Harley’s worlds collide, their connection is undeniable but it sets them on a path full of secrets, lies, and ancient wounds. Harley must make a choice, give up the dangerous man she’s working for and trust the one who holds her captive, or run far away from both of them before their feud ends her life. But when Cassius sees a side to her that could change everything, he must figure out how to convince her to stop running. Because the only thing they have left to lose is their hearts.

When the lines of passion are blurred, can it ever become love? Or will it destroy them first?

AFTER I RUN is a standalone book in the Immortal Billionaires series, a steamy enemies to lovers paranormal romance with hot alpha shifters, a strong female heroine, and a HEA.

WARNING: This book contains graphic content and is meant for 18+ readers only.

The Perfect Man: A Small Town Brother’s Best Friend Romance by Lynn Dare – New Release

The Perfect Man: A Small Town Brother’s Best Friend Romance by Lynn Dare is now available!

~Synopsis~

Welcome to Cape Kismet, where the neighbors are nosy, the bookstores offer an escape, and epic romances abound.

A hot date? Try Five. 
Every time a perfect man shows up at my door, I swoon the proper amount and do my best not to stare at his chiseled features and firm… jaw. Yes, definitely his jaw.
But I, Ellie Amore, have a problem. It’s big, gigantic, and not in the good way.
None of these men are real. And that version of me? More fake than an author calling herself classy while drinking boxed wine in her yoga pants.
Me, that author is me.
I dream of hot men. Perfect men. Fictional men. These men go into my books, and it’s all I need for my messy cat-lady-living-above-a-bookstore life. Really.
I don’t need my brother’s best friend checking up on me. The man who brings me tacos. The one who is decidedly not perfect—as his enemy cat would tell you—but somehow might just be perfect for me.
I’m not sure how it all started or when he decided I was more than a favor to his friend.
All I know is Cruz is not a man from my dreams. This time, it’s different.
This time, he’s real.

The Perfect Man is book one in the Perfect Man romantic comedy series. Dive in for plenty of swoons, lots of laughs, and a guaranteed HEA ending.

Interview with an Author featuring C.C. Solomon

The Literary Vixen presents…

87336768_2456973831231814_8231347510463954944_o

Joining us today is C.C. Solomon! Her newest release, Dark Hauntings: A Paranormal Times Novel released on July 20th 2021.

How long have you been writing?

 I’ve been seriously writing for about ten years but I first started when I was in middle school.

Describe a typical writing day.

You know, I don’t think I have a writing day. Since I work full time, I fit it in where I can get it in. Usually writing on my laptop on the couch or bed, listening to music or with cartoons on in the background.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Everywhere. I am a daydreamer. Certain situations can inspire me. Also I love anime and k dramas so I get inspired by those as well. And I’m a big time reader so I get inspired by other authors. If you want to learn how to be a better writer, reading works like Stephen King can be not only good entertainment but educational.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

I think Fran has become my favorite. My latest release, Dark Hauntings, is the second time she’s featured, although she’s done some cameos in other books in my Paranormal World universe. She’s tough, says what’s on her mind and is fearless. However, she is also able to self reflect and course correct should she fail.

How do you deal with the emotional impact of a book (on yourself) as you are writing the story?

I’m not sure I have a special way of dealing. The emotional impact is part of the ride of it all. I try not to make negative events in my books without a bigger purpose but going for “the feels” is part of the fun! And I love it as a reader.

Are you on social media and can your readers interact with you?

Yep, I’ve provided you with the links. I’m mostly on Facebook and Instagram. Right now I’m just on stalker status on Tik Tok lol.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I’d like to think I have a unique perspective. Growing up, there were no books in urban fantasy with BIPOC as the leads. Usually such characters were written as “the other” and were one note. I’m glad to write in something culturally different, including certain lesser known folklores like I did in Dark Hauntings, to a degree and incorporate my love of super hero shows, anime and K dramas as a unique mix.

Are you working on anything at the present you would like to share with me?

Right now I’m in the middle of writing the sequel to Mystic Realms. So we are going back to the world of faeries and elves but still in this post apocalyptic world.  It’s more paranormal romance than urban fantasy but that’s also a favorite genre of mine.

What advice would you give to other authors?

Keep writing. You can go back to fix things but finish the novel first.

What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?

That I’m passionate about it and I like to write what I want to read and I hope that shows.

 

 

Thank you C.C. Solomon for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Dark Hauntings today!

2021-0109 CC Solomon b01

~Synopsis~

In a post-apocalyptic world full of monsters and demons, living without a memory is a dangerous thing.

Hi, my name is Francesca Ross and my life sucks right now. I’m a faerie who doesn’t remember her life beyond five years ago. I used to be a top-ranking warrior faerie but now I’ve become a homeless, unemployed loser with no plans for the future. I was supposed to be a big-time faerie queen with my own unseelie court by now. However, my approval ratings in the fae world aren’t the greatest due to some past infighting, so I’m forced to agree to a ‘special arrangement’ with a popular faerie if I want any chance at winning the throne.

When I get an offer from an arch angel to investigate angel disappearances in a small vacation town in exchange for help recovering my lost memories, I can’t say no. I need all the help I can get. Also, I could use a little vacation from doing nothing. I enlist the help of my friend who I may or may not have had a romance with in my past, half angel/half demon, Felix Gonzalez, along with a not so angelic guardian angel and a temperamental succubus. But of course, nothing is as easy as the deceiving angels explained. Now I’m stuck in a town with a mystery more gruesome than I could have imagined and I’m being stalked by several demonic forces, one of whom could have the answers to my hidden past.

Can I save the day, regain my memories, and win a throne? A girl can try.

Fans of Supernatural and the Kate Daniel’s series may like this new paranormal tale.

C.C. is originally from Baltimore, Maryland and has actively written fiction since the age of eleven. She’s an avid “chick lit” reader and urban fantasy fan. During her days, she works in Civil Rights for the federal government. In her free time, she sings karaoke, travels the globe and watches too much TV… when she’s not writing of course.

Tides of Time (The Legacy Book 1)

~Synopsis~

She had a very good reason for breaking the first rule of magic … and the second one … 

Cami Donovan has secrets. Big ones that no one can ever know.

All she can do now is try to forget the past and focus on the future. But as it turns out, her future—her family’s future—might not be shiny and bright unless she can help her sister resolve the cold case murder that’s been plaguing her psychic visions.

Falling for the sexy history expert who holds the keys to it all? That was never part of the plan.

The last thing on Sam Corraza’s mind is romance. Emotional entanglements bring nothing but pain. His past certainly taught him that. But when he’s presented with an old Hollywood mystery to solve, he can’t stay away—from the case, or the enchanting witch who brought it to him.

As they unravel the evidence—and their feelings for each other—it becomes clear that the past is coming back to haunt them in a big way.

With danger closing in, can Cami and Sam overcome all that stands between them—or is history destined to repeat itself?

If you love Michelle M. Pillow, Abigail Owen, K.F. Breene, or K.M. Shea, check out this series that readers have described as a steamy Charmed meets Lucifier with witch sisters solving murder mysteries and finding true love.

“A magical debut full of unique, complex characters, fabulous sisterhood and an adorable dog. Who could ask for anything more?” — Felicia Grossman, Historical Romance Author

Magic Touch (The Legacy Book 2)

~Synopsis~

A witch with secrets, her reluctant protector, and a murder to solve. What could possibly go wrong?

Delia Donovan has everything under control.

Keep her family’s magical secrets hidden? No problem.

Rein in her own witchy powers? Easy.

Join a clandestine FBI task force to solve a cold case murder? She’s got it covered.

But ignoring the intense sexual chemistry she has with the cocky jerk who heads her security detail? Well, that’s another story.

The last thing Mark Cavan wants on his team is a supernatural Lawyer Barbie who traipses through crime scenes in designer clothes and stilettos. But he needs a magical asset to solve the case, and Delia is the perfect witch for the job.

He’ll just have to somehow ignore his growing attraction to the infuriating woman. Seems doable…right?

It’s not long before Mark learns there’s more to Delia than meets the eye—and Delia realizes that falling for Mark would be the easiest—and most complicated—thing she’s ever done.

But they’ll need to put their feelings on the back burner if they want to catch the murderer…before they become the next victims.

If you love Michelle M. Pillow, Abigail Owen, K.F. Breene, or K.M. Shea, check out this series that readers have described as a steamy Charmed meets Lucifier with witch sisters solving murder mysteries and finding true love.

“A witch and an FBI agent find love while solving a years-old murder in the wickedly delightful second paranormal romance in Joya’s Legacy series. The anticipation is delicious.” — Publishers Weekly

~Synopsis~

***Raven Daughter is a completed series of three books.

I’m Jo and the death of my mother revealed a whole lot of secrets she was keeping. Like the fact that my sperm-donor father was a freaking angel who couldn’t keep it in his pants and slept with a woman he should never have been with. Or the fact I’m not mortal and would one day be a reaper of souls.

Reaping souls, now there is something I never dreamed I would do, but here I am doing just that. Or at least I was, until souls started becoming Lost. And that’s when things went south.

When I stupidly agreed to help discover what was causing the Lost without reading the fine print first. Now a lot of immortals would like to see me dead because of what I might become. To top it off, I ended up blood bound to a powerful half-demon who is supposed to be a reaper’s sworn enemy. Funny thing is he may be the only one I can trust.

Warning: Although this series deals with angels and demons, there is nothing religious about them. Anyone looking for that within the pages of these books will be disappointed.

**This book is part of a series and ends on a cliffhanger.


All Shot to Hell: A Demon Romance (Sin Demons Book 3) by Mila Young & Harper A. Brooks – My Review

41cTVbaEuHL

Title: All Shot to Hell: A Demon Romance (Sin Demons Book 3)

Author: Mila Young & Harper A. Brooks

Release Date: February 25th 2021

Genre: Fantasy, Romance

Playing devil’s advocate with three demons? There’s no way I am ever going to win.

Things were finally going right for us. We got the relics back. We defeated the dragon. I thought we’d won. But we’ve ended up losing so much more…

Cain’s severely wounded, and I don’t know how to save him. Losing him shouldn’t bother me, but it does. A lot.

Elias and Dorian have a plan: seek out help from people who wield the darkest and cruelest of magic. We soon find that the only one with enough power to bring the Prince of Hell back from death is a master of death itself. But nothing can be done for free and the price has us traveling across the world and facing a slew of new dangers, ones none of us are prepared for.

Even with everything shot to hell, the demons remain a constant temptation I don’t need. Being with them only seems to fan the flames, but letting me go depends on finding all of Hell’s relics.

And if I’m being honest, I’m not sure what I’ll do once my soul is freed.

The thrilling and seductive adventure continues. Grab your copy today!

All Shot to Hell is book three in the Sin Demons Series.

5-gold-stars

Just when I think I have a favorite in this series, the authors prove me wrong. So much is going on and I am here for it! Aria is coming to terms regarding her new life with the guys. You know? The sexy demon men. Yeah them. One of them needs her help and she finds that she will do anything to save him.

I really like how close she becomes to Dorain and Elias. Like everything is coming together like it’s supposed to. There are more secrets to uncover but for now, they are handling it one day at a time. I love the chemistry between them all. Especially between Aria and Dorian. Those steam scenes will definitely heat up your night! The ending left me wanting more! I’m not surprised given how addicting this series is.

This whole book had me engaged from beginning to end. I want more! Love the story telling that Miss Brooks and Miss Young bring to these stories. Their combined writing style is fantastic! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves some sexy paranormal romance. You won’t be disappointed! I give this 5 stars.

This entertaining story will leave you wanting more. I give this 5 stars.
