She Thinks My Dragon’s Sexy: MacAllen Clan (Dragon Guard Book 35)

Fate Will Not be Denied, but if you happen to be a Gambler, the safe bets always on a Dragon and his Mate.

Coming back to West Texas for Elle

Sure, it was hotter than hell and drier than a popcorn fart, but it was home. Not just a place on the map, but in her heart where it really mattered. Burntwing was a mixed bag of tricks. Sure, it was where she’d grown up, where she’d had her first beer, her first kiss, ridden her first horse, and raised all kinds of hell…but it was also where her family had tragically and with no explanation been taken from her.

Stepping back on the sandy soil of home, the plan was simple (1) get her client outta hot water, (2) find the person responsible for her family’s murder, and keep herself from falling in love with a Dragon. No worries, right?

Family meant everything. It was all he’d ever known, and as the oldest son of an oldest son and a Guardsman, Gage took his job as Protector very seriously, even though his four younger brothers knew every one of his buttons to push and laughed as they did it.

Seeing her walking into the Courthouse changed everything. With her in his arms, he saw forever. All he had to do was slay a centuries old flying menace and convince the One the Universe made for him that he wasn’t an arrogant, know-it-all Dragon, but instead, her One and Only Mate. Piece of cake, right?

With more on the line than his love life and the scales covering his backside, Gage MacAllen is about to learn the true meaning of ‘Destiny will always find a way’.

Can he thaw out in time to join the battle?

Will she save the day without him?

Will the Fanatical Feathered Freak finally be brought to justice?

And…who in all that’s holy is the Dragon trapped in the ice?

Only the Great Creator and the Universe know the answers, and as usual, neither one is talking. So, Take a load off, Grab a cold one, and Get ready for one Helluva story.

The low appreciative growl of his Wolf joined the deep rumble of his Dragon as the soft caress of feathers stroked his cheeks. Looking up as the truck came to a stop and the rumble of the engine faded away, Gage’s eyes landed on the back of what he could only imagine was a beautiful woman. The swing of her long raven-haired ponytail was hypnotic and moved in perfect time to the mesmerizing sway of her hips. Her confidence and strength surrounded her like an impenetrable shield and the set of her shoulders assured him that she took no shit from anyone.

Shifting the leather shoulder strap of her briefcase, the swooping neckline of the back of her light cream-colored blouse moved to the side uncovering a perfectly drawn wing covered in feathers of blue, purple and gold. Images of the Rain Bird flashed in Gage’s mind. His dragon roared and his Wolf howled as one word flashed in his mind, Mate

Ascension Saga: 4 (Interstellar Brides® Program: Ascension Saga)

Faith Jones is an Earth girl…and she’s not.
She’s half Aleran. And not just any half – a royal half.
Her mother is the queen, her sister is the heir, and her twin is determined to kill every alien on the planet if that’s what it takes to find their kidnapped mother.

Faith’s job is to hide her identity and infiltrate the Jax family household to discover who betrayed them and ordered a hit on their lives. Faith thinks she’s got it all under control, until she meets Lord Jax’s oldest son, Thordin. He’s sexy. He’s hot as hell. And the first time he sees her, he tells her the one thing she absolutely does not want to hear…Mine!

Her head says no, but her body? Well, that wanton traitor seems to have a mind of its own.


I usually read just about everything Grace writes and this one no exception. I love the characters and the strong women. The sex scenes are steamy and abundant. What I didn’t care for where how short the stories were and how the stories would just stop only to pick up on the next book. Why not just take the time to write a complete story of each sister and continue the saga, not make it incredibly short stories. To pay $2.99 for 97 pages that only took me 2hrs to read, not going to pay that again. I’m done with this saga. I don’t care how it ends. I’m not paying $2.99 + for such short stories. It’s a shame because I really liked these books too. – Amazon Customer (Verified Purchase)

A Sassy Wedding (Sassy Mates series Book 3.7)

An Alpha and his BBW finally get their walk down the aisle…

Time to revisit Jordan and Aric.

With everyone in Vegas for a girl’s week, Jordan’s stress level goes through the roof with wedding plans, until Aric decides to take matters into his own hands.

Read about what he does to help Jordan with the wedding. And then, see what happens when Jordan comes face to face with her past.

She shook her head. “I don’t think she really wants a man to walk her down the aisle. It’s symbolic. Jordan has spoken of her mother so many times. She said it didn’t hurt so much that her father didn’t want her as much as knowing her mother was so quick to abandon her. When your father and I finally got married, I chose to ask my mother. She was the one person who encouraged me to be with the man I loved.”

Aric turned to Barbara. “You.”

She blinked. “Me what, son?”

He grinned. For once he had come up with something before his mother. “You can walk her down the aisle. She loves you more than her real parents. Hell, she said she wishes constantly you were her real mother.”

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Milly Taiden loves to write sexy stories. How sexy? So sexy they will surely make your ereader sizzle. Usually paranormal or contemporary, her stories are a great quick way to satisfy your craving for fun heroines with curves and sexy alphas with fur.

Milly lives in New York City with her hubby, their boy child and their little dog “Needy Speedy”. She’s aware she’s bossy, is addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn’t, right?) and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

She loves to meet new readers!


Spring Cleaning at the Blog!

I came across an interesting blog post on Pinterest a couple of days ago. The title was simply “7 Ways to Spring Clean Your Blog”. Reading it made me realize that this was something I needed to do.

I looked back at the posts I’ve made. Now, to be honest, there were a number of posts that I had intended to make a regular feature. Others were “spur of the moment” type of posts.

So, I plan to reorganize the categories first. My usage of them has gotten a bit sloppy so it’s time to clean those up.

Next I want to refocus the posts. I started out planning on book series that were still actively being added to. I still plan on those, but there are a few other ones that I want to do.

Finally, I plan to renew some of the oldest posts. I’ve learned a lot about blogging since I started. I want to incorporate that in my reviews.

Once upon a Desert Moon (Vol. 1)

Three suspenseful stories in one red-hot volume PLUS three exclusive BONUS scenes that are ONLY available here. There’s more than meets the eye on Twin Moon Ranch, home to a pack of shapeshifting wolves willing to battle for life and love.

Desert Moon The scent of destiny…the danger in desire. Lana Dixon knows well enough to steer clear of alpha males, but Ty Hawthorne is as impossible to avoid as the sizzling Arizona sun. Her inner wolf just won’t give up on the alpha who’s tall, dark, and more than a little dangerous. One midnight romp under the full moon is enough for Lana to know she’ll risk her life for him—but what about her pride?

Ty puts duty above everything—even the overwhelming instinct that says Lana’s the one. She’s the Juliet to his Romeo: forbidden. And with a pack of poaching rogues closing in, it’s hardly the time to yield to his desires. Or is love just what this lonely alpha needs to set his spirit free?

Plus Spring Hollow exclusive bonus scene!

Desert Blood She’s on the run…into the arms of forbidden love. Heather Luth knows nothing about the paranormal world until one awful night changes everything. Now she’s on the run—straight into the arms of forbidden love. Her mind knows better than to fall for Cody Hawthorne’s sunny smile and mesmerizing voice, but her heart—and destiny—have other ideas.

On the surface, Cody is warm, witty, and fun, but beneath his carefree facade, Heather sees a real man struggling to break free. Day by day, Heather and Cody grow closer and closer, unable to resist their simmering passion—while day by day, a serial murderer closes in on his prey. Duty fights desire; fear wrestles trust as the human world clashes with the paranormal in a tale of forbidden love.

Plus Hot Blooded Desert Nights exclusive bonus scene!

Desert Fate The only thing that can save her is his bite. Kyle Williams is just a lone wolf trying to settle in to a new skin. But when the brown-eyed girl from his past turns up, bloodied by a rival male, the instinct to protect overrides everything else—including duty to his pack.

Stefanie Alt is a woman on the run, and fate is hot on her heels. The only one who can help her is the neighborhood bad boy she once knew. But even after one hot night under the desert moon, Stefanie isn’t sure she can trust him—or herself.

Plus A Desert Valentine exclusive bonus scene!

USA Today and Amazon bestselling author Anna Lowe loves dogs, sports, and travel – and letting those inspire her fiction. On any given weekend, you might find her hiking in the mountains or hunched over her laptop, working on her latest story. Either way, the day will end with a chunk of dark chocolate and a good read.

Anna loves putting the “hero” back into heroine and letting location ignite a passionate romance. She likes a heroine who is independent, intelligent, and imperfect – a woman who’s doing just fine on her own. But give the heroine a good man – not to mention a chance to overcome her own inhibitions – and she’ll never turn down the chance for adventure, nor shy away from danger.

If you enjoy the paranormal romances of T.S. Joyce, Milly Taiden, or Terry Bolryder, you’ll love Anna Lowe’s Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch series. If you’re a fan of Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, and other action-adventure stories, you shouldn’t miss Anna Lowe’s Serendipity Adventure Romance series!

On her “Eat, Pray, Love” soul-searching journey across the country with noting but her radio blastin’, the top rolled down, and her trusty red Jeep named Daisy Mae, Dax may have bitten off more than she can chew this time.

Bright red hair and a smile that darn near knocks him on his butt, the woman stuck on the side of the road is a wild filly J.D. would love to tame, but then again, she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is.

The desert’s hot but this couple’s hotter, not to mention the raised-from-the-dead Medicine Man who’s hell bent on bathing his special little precious in their blood. Talk about prickly as a cactus!

The Great Creator and the Universe don’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but the flames of Destiny are hotter than ever before.

Wanting to see her smile just one more time before the ride home, J.D. looked forward and headed towards his tan and black filly named Sugar, asking the one question he was sure would get a rise outta Dax. “Ever ride a horse before?” “Ride a horse? Cowboy, I am a Horse. “Mills, Julia. Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon: MacAllen Clan (Dragon Guard Series Book 33). Kindle Edition.

Ascension Saga: 3 (Interstellar Brides®: Ascension Saga)

Although Trinity grew up on Earth, she’s Aleran. She’s been chosen by the artificial intelligence that bestows special gifts upon those deemed worthy. She’s been chosen to rule. To lead the planet and avoid the rising tides of war.

Leo is hers. She feels the truth every time he touches her. But enemies hunt them, her sisters are off on dangerous missions of their own, the queen is still missing, and in the royal court, nothing is what is seems…

  • Finally, the end of Trinity’s story. It does pick up where part two ended, but in order to get right back into the feel of the story, I would recommend re-reading the first two parts or at least skimming them prior to diving in. Grace is a master of storyline and characterization ( not to mention the heat!!!) ; I’m just really disappointed by her decision to adapt a cliffhanger format after 20+ successful books without using this crutch. Yes, others have used it, but it is usually used by authors trying to develop a readership not established authors. I definitely downgraded my review based on cliffhanger format. I feel the story lost momentum due to format. Still love author but just go ahead and be honest about price increase for your work and drop cliffhanger format, please!!! The completed book would be worth it!
  • The third in the Ascension saga, Trinity and Leo’s story. This is not a stand alone book, Trinity is protecting the throne on Alera with Leo by her side while the search for her mother, the queen, is still underway. A huge ball for Trinity is not helping, and trying to figure out who is an ally and who is an enemy. What was an enemy is now an ally, and more enemies keep coming. Now Leo, with the help of his father and the queen’s guard must find Trinity. While Trinity is trying to keep the throne safe, her sisters Faith and Destiny are on their own trying to get clues as to the location of their mother. I love this series, and although the ending is a HEA, you are left with many unanswered questions. Faith’s story is next, hopefully we will get some answers, though I doubt it. The saga has nine books and they are only published to book 5. I hope that Grace Goodwin gets the rest of the series done soon…..I do not like to be left hanging.
