Sweet Magic Song - Large

Belle Bittner was sold to the highest bidder when she was just a child, sought for the magic lying dormant in her blood. She grew up as the adopted daughter of a wealthy vampire couple, and serving the child-trafficking Org seemed her only option in life. But Belle has other plans, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her escape, even if it means betraying those who try to help her.

Desperate to stay free of an evil vampire who means to possess her no matter what, Belle decides she can use the protection of the flirtatious faery named Roon. The two of them flee to the faery realm where Rooney believes he can better protect her. What he doesn’t know is that taking the bea

utiful siren through the golden door will set off a cataclysm of events that will threaten the fabric of both the human and the faery worlds.

Separating myth from fact to decipher the truth about her powers could mean the destruction of the new life Belle’s trying so hard to build.


My Review:

When I read the Bend-Bite-Shift series, I fell in love. There were plenty of characters to fall for but I fell for a very flirtatious faery named Rooney. He was a minor character but I loved his spunky personality. He was so much fun. So when I found out there was going to be a book with him as the main character, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

So, Roon (as I call him) is front and center. He decides to follow a beautiful witch and 3 children in her charge to see what she is up to and ends up helping them. And of course a little romance is in order. Roon being his adorable sexy self, who could resist? Not me, that’s for sure.

This book has it all…paranormal characters, danger, action, passion…sigh. Did I mention Roon is sexy as hell? I love the pace of it as we move from our realm to the faery realm. I seriously would love to go there. The way the author describes it, I can picture it in my head and it is gorgeous.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot but they must work together to save her and the children. And Roon is in full hot knight-in-shining mode. Belle, the witch, is no slouch either. This woman has guts. Strong woman are great to read. I am more than willing to share my Roon with her. I guess.

I am so glad the author decided to give Roon his own book. He is so much fun to read with his mischievous ways. So go get a copy and check out my Roon…I will share him with you for a bit. But only a bit.

When Olivia Hardin began having movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long, the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

Absolutely loved this book! After an attention grabbing prologue, this book never stops. It starts off with college girls going out for a fun time (I remember those days, sort of) and then takes off from there.
The author has created quite a cast of characters. I love how you get to meet them all and get to know them in due time. The main character has flaws of course but she is strong and gets through with help from her friends. This makes her so relatable to me, she is like someone I could have known. I want to be friends with her and her friends, they are a fun and supportive group. And of course being introduced to a group of werewolves is always interesting. Their way of life, the hierarchy of the pack made for fascinating reading. I loved how the author explained how this group came to be; the story of their ancestry was also woven into the story.Another thing I liked was the setting, a college town up north. Being a northerner by birth, I could really connect to the place. The descriptions of the homes, the woods, and the cold weather (reminding me why I moved south) were all reminiscent of where I grew up.
The paranormal aspect was fresh and new which is hard to do now. There are so many out there. But the author puts her own spin on it and while I won’t give away spoilers, it was entertaining and fun to read. The author did a fabulous job moving the reader along, there were no dull spots and she kept me guessing as to what would happen next. Almost everyone she is close to becomes involved in the story.
The ending is making me want more and to know what happens next in this adventure and I am hoping she doesn’t leave me waiting long. If you are a paranormal fan, you will want to read this book….and if you are not, this book will make you one!
This is definitely a red wine book. Whatever kind you like, I enjoyed a Cabernet Sauvignon with this one.

Wilted Wings by Shadow Stephens – Review

Wilted WingsWilted Wings

Power, greed, and envy fill Damon and Ilisha’s world. Their hope of settling into a life of peace and family remains out of grasp. Damon is kidnapped and forced to stand trial for the death of his father while a breed of hybrids designed to destroy all angels is set loose. With no choice but to leave her earthly mother and baby behind, Ilisha struggles in a world of high politics and family feuds. She must become an ultimate warrior to save her husband and both the worlds she loves.


Wilted Wings is the second book in the series and I recommend reading Broken Butterflies (book one) prior to reading this one. In book two, the main characters are angels living here on earth raising the human baby of Ilisha’s late friend and her husband.
This book tells the story of how Ilisha and Damon must return to their kingdoms in order to fight the demons infiltrating earth. The author does a fabulous job of describing the different kingdoms. I really felt like I could “see” them. We are also introduced to new characters there. It was fun to meet the angels there and find out how they figured into Ilisha’s and Damon’s story. I loved the pace of this book; there is lots of action as they battle and discover who is behind what is happening on earth.
Back on earth, the action continues. The demons are wreaking havoc here and I enjoyed how the author shows humankind reacting to the chaos. I don’t want to give anything away, but the author does tie most everything up nicely but I could see that this may not be the end of their story.
I liked how the author has developed Ilisha into a strong character, who is brave and smart. She knows what must be done and isn’t afraid to do it. In the first book, she is just discovering who she is; in this one she really comes into her own.
Now, on to the steamy scenes. These are plentiful and descriptive. If you like reading hot sex scenes, you won’t be disappointed!
I would recommend a Merlot with this book…strong like Ilisha!


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
