***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


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.


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.

Author: Lindsey Powell

Forbidden fruit never tasted so good… He’s my professor. I’m his student. I shouldn’t want him, but I do. He shouldn’t want me, but he does. How are we meant to stay away from one another? The answer is, we aren’t. And as much as what we are doing is wrong, I don’t care. I live my life on the edge, never shying away or bowing down to anyone. My world is dangerous, deadly. I love the thrill, the excitement, the power of knowing that everywhere I go, people know where I come from. I believe in love. I believe in power. I believe in status, and I intend to be at the top of the chain… with him by my side. We just have to wait, bide our time, choose the right moment to come out of the shadows. Is he ready to be a part of my world? Is he ready to forget everything he’s ever known? And will he be able to handle the heat when the time comes for everyone to know about us? Or will it all come crashing down around me when I finally let him into my heart? I am Natalie Valentine, and this is my story… Poker Face is a stand-alone age-gap forbidden romance within the world of Checkmate.

**Each title in the Games we Play series can be read as a stand-alone novel and is intended for readers 18 years and over.

There are cameos from each of the characters throughout the series. You don’t have to read every book to enjoy, but it may enhance your reading experience if you do.***


Oh my hotness!!

The story starts off with a bang! Seriously. Nice touch there Miss Powell! I definitely wanted more! The electricity between Natalie and Jess was off the charts. Forbidden love made it even hotter! Between the action and the danger to the steamy scenes, I was hooked. I found it hard to put this book down. Who needs sleep? This story is sensual, erotic mixed with that dangerous factor. This entertaining story will leave you wanting more. I give this 5 stars.

BRINK OF DENIAL: A Dark Mafia Romance (Sons of Sindicato Book 1) by Cam Johns & Sonya Jesus – My Review

Author: Cam Johns & Sonya Jesus

Release Date: May 20th 2021

Genre: Mafia Romance

She only calls when she needs a fix of danger. 

His addiction for Mila is a vice he can’t kick.

When the glamour of fame dims down and the cameras stop shooting, Mila Blanc itches to be the Mafia princess she used to be. She misses her best friend—the man she shared every first with—but most of all, she misses herself. The problem is she’s too proud to admit she was wrong.

For eleven years, Dane Giordano has watched the only woman he’s ever loved forget him. He has hardened by the minute, grown crueler by the hour, and the love they once shared has transformed to hate.

So when Mila comes back during a turbulent time, ready to take her rightful place by his side, Dane doesn’t make it easy. To be his wife, she’s going to have to find herself again and prove she’s worthy of being a daughter of the Sindicato.

Dane is hard to love, but Mila is even harder to break.

The is a full-length dark mafia romance for readers who enjoy suspense, thrills and second chances. Caution is advised. This 90k+ book may contain scenes not appropriate for younger audiences.


A very addicting series!

I love me some Dane! Holy hotness! This story has it all! Danger, action, suspense and of course those steamy scenes we love to get lost in. This is one of those guilty pleasure reads that you’ll finish in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down! I was fully invested in the story and had to know what would come next. This story had me at the edge of my seat in anticipation! Well done ladies!

I truly enjoyed the writing styles of Miss Johns and Miss Jesus. They work extremely weak and bring us some incredible reads. If you’re a fan of mafia and dark romance reads, this series is for YOU! Move this up on your TBR and one click it today! I give this 5 stars.

New Release – Flash Point (The Legacy Book 5) by Luna Joya

Flash Point (The Legacy Book 5) by Luna Joya is now available!


Banish the demon, stop the prophecy, and do not fall in love. Easy, right? Yeah, not so much.

Mina Donovan is a woman of many talents. Fire elemental, psychic, Legacy witch, magical asset for an FBI paranormal task force…she does it all. Her latest struggle? Not crushing on her sexy best friend. Logically, she knows they can’t be together. Too bad her heart has never bothered with logic.

The friend zone is the last place pyro expert Josh wants to be with Mina. Not that he has any choice in the matter. A witch hunter falling for a witch? Not smart. He’ll just have to learn to ignore his attraction to the gorgeous woman who already owns so much of his heart.

If Mina and Josh have any hope of finding their way to happily ever after, they’ll have to banish an all-powerful demon and take down an evil magical organization. Oh, and they’ll also have to figure out how to stop the prophecy that warns a dragon will consume Mina.

It’ll take more than magic to fix this supernatural dilemma.

If you like 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.

Hello everyone!

I want to give you all an update. I know I haven’t been around much. I am still actively working and reviewing. I hit a reading slump. A lot of it had to do with grieving and what’s been going on in my life. Books are my happy place and I couldn’t even bring myself to read.

I am much better! I’ve been reading and will be scheduling more reviews for you to check out. Thank you to those who reached out and the author friends who didn’t give up on me. It means more than you know!

Lots of cool things are happening. I was on a podcast! Yep, lil ol’ me! It will be up this week for anyone that wants to check it out. The host is amazing!

I am also on TikTok! Still trying to figure it out and so far it’s pretty fun! Follow me @theliteraryvixen

Interview with an Author featuring Megan Lowe

The Literary Vixen presents…


Joining us today is Megan Lowe! Her latest release, Bad Boy: An MM Bully romance (Good Boy/Bad Boy Duet Book 2) released on July 17th 2021.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a massive bookworm, wannabe booktoker, sometimes author, avid sports fan, tea drinker, pin collector, good music advocate, and admirer of good-looking men!

Congrats on your newest release! Tell me a bit about this series?

Thank you! It’s called Bad Boy and is the second half of my Good Boy/Bad Boy duet. It’s an MM bully romance, set in Chicago, with fast cars, and hopeless boys!

How many books have you written? Which is your fave?

Bad Boy is number 11, which is crazy!! I never thought I’d have one published, let alone 11!

My favourite has to be Royal Blue (Sovereigns of Savannah, book 1). It’s my first self-published book, which was a mountain of stress, but it’s 100% the book I wanted to write, exactly as I pictured it in my head. It was probably the easiest book I’ve written, and the one I’m most sure of.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always been a writer. When I was little I used to make up my own newsletter, and distribute it to my parents. I never, ever dreamed I could actually be an actual writer. 

I’m a trained journalist, but never got a “proper” job in that field. It was when I finally gave up on that path, that I started writing fiction. It was about seven years ago that I probably actually realised I could publish a book, either by myself, or through a publisher.

What was your hardest scene to write?

I don’t know about a particular scene, but I can tell you Good Boy was my hardest book to write! The whole thing! I wrote it during covid and my head was all over the place. I didn’t know where I wanted the book to go, who I wanted the characters to be. It was a mess. It’s not a mess anymore, though!

Have you done any book events/cons?

I’ve done a few, both in the US, and in Australia. I did have a few on the books for this year, but I’m unsure if they’re going to go ahead, and who knows when I’ll ever get back to the States, but I’m hopeful things will get better soon!

What is one of your guilty pleasure reads?

I don’t feel guilty about anything that I read, but I will re-read The Deal by Elle Kennedy at least twice a year! And every now and then I think you need a good, crammed full of smut book! Something where you don’t need to think to read it, you just need to enjoy!

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Oh God! Right now I just want to get out of my state! I haven’t left Queensland since March last year! I was supposed to go to Melbourne in three weeks, but that doesn’t look like it will be happening. I also had a big trip to Dallas, New York, Boston, and New Orleans planned last year, but obviously that didn’t happen either!

So, for my sanity, I’d just like to get out of Queensland, but my usual answer would always be New York. It’s my favourite city in the world, closely followed by Nashville.

I’ve also been watching the Tour de France, and the scenery is just stunning! So I wouldn’t mind going back to Paris. But yeah, we’ll start with just going over the border!

What are you currently working on?

Right now, nothing! Self publishing is so hard, and stressful! I’m a worrier by nature, so I always blow everything up to like, a million times worse than it is! So once I’ve put a book to bed, I kind of crash!

In my line-up though I want to tackle the second Sovereigns of Savannah book, Regal Purple. I wrote it the end of 2019 and was about to send it to my editor, but I hated it, so I shelved it! But I think I’m ready to tackle it again.

I also want to write the third book in that series, Majestic Pink. I finally know who Magenta is and she’s slowly starting to talk to me, so I’m kind of excited to see where that goes.

I’ve also got an idea for either a mature YA or NA ménage, and a single-father romance.

I have a lot of ideas, but a love of being lazy and procrastinating! I also hand-write, so everything takes me like, three times as long.

What advice would you give to other authors?

Don’t hand write your books! Lol.

Besides that, read a lot. See what’s out there, how people do their stories, what their stories are about. Figure out what you like, what you don’t like, what you want your characters to be. You need a very clear voice.

In publishing terms? You will need an editor. I don’t care how many times you read your manuscript, or how good at grammar you are, you need an editor.

You also need a good cover designer. People do judge a book by it’s cover. Spend the money, on both things, because they are vitally important.

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

That I always try to put a spin on things. Whether it’s a combination you’ve never seen before, or a sport you’ve never heard of, I always try to be a little bit different!

Thank you Megan Lowe for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest series, GoodBoy/Bad Boy Duet today!

bad boy


Cavanugh McLaughlin is a bad boy. He’s tried to be the good boy, the good son, but it’s not him.

Then Connor Siddell came into his world and changed everything.

For a chance to be with Connor, Cav is willing to change.

But in the wake of a life-threatening accident, Cav is forced to face his truths.

Is the accident enough to turn this bad boy good?

Or is it too late, for both of them?

*Bad Boy is book two of the Good Boy/Bad Boy duet and must be read in order.

Bad Boy contains a depiction of suicide. Reader caution is advised.

Megan Lowe is a lost journalism graduate who after many painful years searching for a job in that field, decided if she couldn’t write news stories, she would start listening to the characters whispering stories to her and decided to write them down.  She writes Mature YA, New Adult/Contemporary Romance stories with a difference. She is based on the Gold Coast but her heart belongs to New York City. When she’s not writing she’s either curled up with a good book, travelling or screaming at the TV willing her sporting teams to pull out the win.

Interview with an Author featuring Eva Finley

The Literary Vixen presents…


Joining us today is Eva Finley! Her debut novel, The Sun Daughter’s Gift released November 15th 2020.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m thirty-five, I live in Michigan, which is the ninth state I’ve lived in. I work a full time job and I’m currently taking online classesto get my associates degree in paralegal studies.

How long have you been writing?

I’d like to say since I was fifteen, which was twenty years ago, because that’s the short answer lol, but I realized when I thought about it, I started writing when I was 9. I had this puppet show stand that I set up for the kids in my neighborhood. I sold small bags of popcorn and told a story that I’d made up on the spot. At 11 I wrote a story in middle school based on an idea I got from the shape of someone’s ears, and I mean that in a good way. It wasn’t until I was fifteen though that my writing really took off and hasn’t stopped.

Describe a typical writing day.

I like to pull out all my notebooks and binders that contain information about the book I’m working on. Then I pull out my USB that holds all my stories and pull up my folder specifically for that story. Sometimes I know what I’m going to work on, and others I don’t know until I have everything laid out in front of me. One day I might work on the outline if I’ve got an idea for a new scene, write a scene, go through my story bible and work on my worldbuilding, or type up what I’ve written in my notebooks. I’m usually so focused on writing that I’ll forget to eat something, because I don’t want to stop.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

From everything, everyone, and everywhere. This is not an exaggeration. The first series that I ever wrote, I got the idea when I looked at a skeleton key lock on our old basement door when I was fifteen. A simple word someone says can spark an idea, something I read could spark an idea, like it did for my current book The Sun Daughter’s Gift.

What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

That even though you’re afraid of something, because let’s face it, we’re all afraid of something, you shouldn’t let that fear stop you from doing what’s right, or from doing something you want to do.

What is the significance of the title?

Besides the fact this is the first story I’ve written where the title never changed. The title itself is what helps set the story in motion. It’s what the main character receives, I don’t want to give it away, and what she decides to do with the gift that decides what happens.

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

Imaginative, passionate, and a little crazy in a good way, I do write fantasy after all.

What was the highlight of writing this book?

Believe it or not, the highlight was when I was completely done with it, I realized that if I added twelve of more scenes that are told from the future, it would make it even better. I knew it was bound to drive me crazy in the process, but if I could pull it off it would be amazing.

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

I’m currently working on a YA magical realism trilogy called The Academy of Elements.

What advice would you give to other authors?

No matter how many people tell you to stop writing, DON’T STOP WRITING. Even if you get rejected over and over again DON’T STOP WRITING. I always tell myself I’ll keep trying until the day I die. It doesn’t matter how many people tell me no, I only need one to say yes.

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

If I keep getting ideas, I’ll keep writing. If someone were to ask me to stop writing it would be like asking me to stop breathing. About my books, that’s a hard one. The one thing the majority, if not all, of my books have in common is that I like to take the world we live in and make it magical, and not necessarily wizards or witches. They make you believe that anything magical could easily be happening right outside your door, you just haven’t seen it yet.

Thank you Eva Finley for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her release, The Sun Daughter’s Gift today!

cover for web_15



One choice, can save the past.

One choice, can alter the future.

Pure light was all thirteen-year-old Claretta Arbogast had to fight the shadows that threatened to take over the Earth. It was the Earth’s misfortune she also happened to be afraid of the dark. Thrust into a battle against Shadow People from the dark side of the moon, she must use the power to create pure light, a gift she received from the Sun’s youngest daughter, to defeat them. With help from Daijon, who has a secret power, Claretta races to light the town against the dark, and save the Sun’s daughters.

Eva Finley’s journey began when she was born in Harvey, Illinois. At the age of eleven she got her first taste of writing. At the age of fifteen it became a passion, and she hasn’t stopped yet. She is the author of The Sun Daughter’s Gift, and has more stories to come.

When she’s not writing you can find her at her full time job. On her days off besides writing, you can find Eva reading, drawing, painting, taking online classes, teaching herself French, or hanging out with friends.

After moving most of her life, Eva has finally found her home in Michigan, though Hogwarts will always be her home, where she’s a proud Hufflepuff.
