Gwen Knight's top 5 favorite things, in no specific order lol!:1. Candy 2. Crocheting 3. Reading 4. Her Puppy 5. Her Husband
She speaks with the dead. He was cursed by them.Four hundred years ago, a coven of dead witches stripped Caleb Jensen of his soul. Now, his only hope is to convince local necromancer, Autumn Kane, to track down and restore it before his eternal hunger consumes him. Beautiful, powerful, and confident, Autumn is more than Caleb bargained for. Except, Autumn has problems of her own. The dead are crying for help. A serial killer has begun targeting the young brides of Salem, and she is the only one who can save them. She has no time to break the curse on this rakish man who steals her breath. Everything about him unsettles her, from his dark nature to his wicked allure. He’s no knight in shining armor. But maybe it's time for a little evil in her life.
 

Just breathe.
Autumn stood outside the Hawthorne Hotel and shivered when a brisk, fall wind chased up her bare back. This certainly wasn’t how she’d imagined the beginning of her night. She’d barely stepped foot out of her car and people were already staring. For a moment, she debated her decision to attend stag. After she’d hung up the phone, she’d dressed and left for the party, too angry to wait for Riley and Lexi. Unfortunately, that meant there was no buffer between her and the gawkers.
A delicate chime came from the clutch she held under her arm. The third message her sister had sent her in the past fifteen minutes, not that she cared. If she intended to work tonight, she needed a clear mind, sans Riley. With a deep breath, Autumn smoothed down the front of her dress, ignoring that her fingers brushed flesh where a plunging neckline artfully draped down to her navel. Certainly not the impression she’d intended to make. At least now she knew never to trust her sister with her wardrobe again.
Now or never, she assured herself.
The doors opened, and from within came the heavy beat of music. Seemed as though the party was already well under way.
Autumn slipped into the ballroom and paused to take it in. Every year the Festival of the Dead put on a ball. This year’s theme was a masquerade, and they’d decorated accordingly. The center of the room had been cleared for the dance floor, and the tables were adorned with black fabric and grotesque centerpieces, all in the name of Halloween. Ochre lights hung from the ceiling and glimmered against the painted walls. They always outdid themselves.
She perused the crowd, watching as they moved in sync to the music, their faces hidden by a series of beautiful masks. Wonderment filled her stomach when she realized she didn’t recognize anyone. The knowledge filled her with courage. They’d know her eventually when they sought her out to summon the dead. But for now, it seemed she could enjoy the anonymity.
A few turned to watch as she entered, but she brushed their attentiveness aside and instead started toward the hors d’œuvres. She couldn’t help but chuckle at the sight of the Halloween-themed snacks from pumpkin cheese balls to monster cookies.
“Quite the selection,” a voice murmured next to her.
Autumn glanced up with a polite smile. Her gaze tracked up a lean length, taking note of the pristine suit that boasted a muscular physique, but it wasn’t until she caught sight of his startling green gaze shining out from behind a golden mask that she gasped.
Him.
Hell, she’d dreamed of those eyes all night, watching her from amidst the shadows. She took a closer look, her heart sputtering against her chest when she recognized Sadie’s soul. Her hip slammed into the table when she staggered backward.
“Shh, easy now,” he murmured, his hand gripping her elbow and steadying her.
Autumn flicked a glance around the room, noting Dawson and her ex-husband patrolling the far side of the room.
His fingers tensed around her elbow. “Don’t be frightened.”
“You.”
“Me,” he said, nodding.
“I thought you were detained.”
“Funny how the law works. Turns out they can’t detain you when you’re innocent.”
She blinked up at him, startled by the handsome sight. Who the hell was this man? Then his words clicked. “What?”
“I said, I’m innocent. They can’t detain me if I haven’t done anything wrong.”
“You ate Sadie!” she exclaimed, wincing when her voice rose above the music.
His face twisted into a grimace. “Wow. That sounded…”
“Sorry,” she mumbled. “I wasn’t thinking.”
“For the record, I am not a serial killer.”
“No, just a soul-eater.”
He paused, shock widening his eyes as though he hadn’t expected her to put two and two together.
“Necromancer, remember? Did you think I wouldn’t know what you are?”
“I hadn’t given it much thought, truthfully.” He regarded her, his gaze unflinching. “I assure you, though, I’m not here to cause any trouble.”
Autumn’s attention dropped to his mouth, mesmerized by the enticing curve of his lips and his strong jawline. He shot her a smile, as though he knew the direction her thoughts had taken. Clearing her throat, she returned to the conversation. “I doubt that. I have a feeling you cause trouble wherever you go.”
“Ah, guilty,” he teased. “Life is too short to play by the rules.” He canted his head with a wide grin. “Well, too short for most.”
“But not you,” she said.
Autumn knew a little about his kind. Her father had come across one many years ago. She’d been thirteen at the time, so he hadn’t been willing to offer many details. The man had massacred multiple families before her father had managed to contain and destroy him. A soul-eater, her father had said, a creature so evil it fed off the souls of the living as a means of living an eternal life.
Her brow furrowed as she studied the man in front of him. Was he the same as the other? “Did you not notice all the police here tonight?”
That sinful mouth crooked. “Of course I did. Did you not notice my mask?”
Oh, she had. How could she have missed it? As though he wasn’t enigmatic enough, the ebony threads woven up into a beautiful leaf added a mysterious appeal. He’d darkened his skin beneath the mask, highlighting his emerald gaze.
He braved a step closer, and Autumn’s heart skipped a beat. She wanted to believe it was the primal rush of fear that had her pulse going, but if it were, she would have made for the nearest police officer. Instead, she tipped her head back and watched as he closed the distance between them.
“Dance with me.” Not a question, but a demand.
Autumn blinked. “What? You’re insane.”
“Possibly. But insane would be not asking you to dance.” He leaned in toward her. “You look so beautiful tonight.”
His words warmed her stomach, but still, she narrowed her eyes. “As opposed to every other night?”
Most men might have balked at such a response, but this one merely tilted his head as the corners of his mouth pulled up in amusement. “I don’t know, yet. Ask me again tomorrow.”
Autumn couldn’t help but chuckle. “A smooth talker, I see.”
“The original smooth talker,” he assured her. “Now, about that dance?”
Before she could protest, his hand ghosted up the length of her back, and he led her out onto the dance floor. Autumn’s breath caught as they moved, the rich scent of his cologne teasing her nose. She should have been afraid, especially after last night, but for some reason, she was more nervous than anything else. She was safe here with half the city’s police force on patrol. Not that she was looking at them. She could barely tear her eyes away from her dance partner.
“Shall we?” He turned toward her and offered his other hand, brow arched as though daring her to resist.
“On one condition.”
His other brow rose.
“Your name.”
A smooth chuckle rose to her ears. “Ah. Forgive me. Here I thought your police friend would have told you everything about me.”
She shook her head.
“Caleb Jensen,” he said after inclining his head in an old gesture she’d only seen in the movies. He stepped up flush against her and wound an arm around her waist. “And you, my dear, are Autumn Kane, necromancer extraordinaire.”
Her breath caught the moment his fingers grazed the small of her back, as though his touch awakened her entire body. She cast a demure smile, then slid her hand in his and gazed up at him from under her lashes. “Am I supposed to be impressed that you know about me?”
“Hardly.” On the next beat, they started to dance.
He moved with singular purpose, and their bodies harmonized as he led them around the room.
“How did you know I’d be here?”
He eased her out into a gentle spin before guiding her back into his chest. His head bent low, his breath brushing against the shell of her ear. “Amazing the things one can learn from the Internet.”
Autumn’s eyes fluttered shut, her heart hammering in her chest as she inhaled his scent. “You realize you’re stalking me, right?”
“I like to think of it more as studying an investment.” He leaned back and draped her body against his side, bracing her weight without breaking stride. “As I tried to tell you last night, I require your help.”
“With what?”
He tsked her, then spun her once more before leading her through the room. “Can’t we finish our dance before discussing business?”
Yes, please. The man certainly knew his way around the dance floor, and though surprising, she was enjoying herself. The feel of his body shifting against her, of his hand warm against her skin as he led her in circles. The logical part of her brain scolded her, told her she shouldn’t be enjoying this. The man had practically abducted her the night before. But the darker half of her soul yearned for this, to come alive beneath someone’s touch again.
A frightening notion that almost had her running home.
This was not the one to come alive for. He’d snatched her off the streets and dragged her into an empty house. He’d devoured Sadie’s soul. He’s the villain, her head screamed at her.
He brushed a hand through her hair and down her jaw. “Keep dancing with me, Autumn.”
Holding his gaze, she nodded.
She’d done the whole white knight in shining armor thing. Hell, once upon a time, she’d married a police officer, and it had been disastrous. Maybe it was time for a little evil in her life.

Release blitz - El Diablo by M. Robinson



RELEASE BLITZ
EL DIABLO
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 30TH, 2016



I was ruthless.
I was feared.
I had sacrificed. Myself. Her. Everything...
Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man, never claimed to be anything else. I’ve done things I’m not proud of. Seen things that can’t be unseen. I’ve caused pain that I can’t undo.
It was all my choice.
Every decision.
Every order.
Right and wrong never mattered.
Until her.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her...
From. Me. The devil himself.

Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.




"Go stretch again, cariño," I ordered in a dominant tone.
Nodding to the barre.
"I'm fine," she stubbornly replied. Shaking her legs and arms out. Getting back into position, looking at me through the mirror.
I cocked my head to the side, arching an eyebrow. She narrowed her eyes at me, but begrudgingly listened. I pressed play, allowing the melody to once again take over. She placed her leg on the lowest barre, making her ass stick out in my direction.
Tempting me.
She closed her eyes, needing to get lost in the music, wanting to push away all the negative thoughts, already feeling discouraged. I stood, taking off my suit jacket. Rolling up the sleeves of my collared shirt as I stepped onto the hardwood floor. I slowly came up behind her, catching her off guard.
She froze, turning around, opening her eyes. Peering up at me through her lashes. “What are you doing?”
I leaned forward against her ear, grinning. “I’m helping you stretch.” Getting down on my knees in front of her.
Her eyes dilated. The feeling of disappointment replaced with nothing but lust. She placed her arms out to the side, resting up against the barre, supporting her weight. I grabbed her ankle, lifting it up in the air, rubbing along her leg as it was fully stretched, before setting it on the lowest barre. Running my other hand up her side, easing her over toward the extended leg. She understood what I was doing, reaching for her ankle, stretching. Standing back up, bringing her arms above her head, I caressed along her leg again, casually turning her torso so her leg was still placed on the barre behind her.
Her breathing hitched as I touched her all over her lower body. My lips softly kissing the inside of her thigh to where she wanted my mouth the most.

The St. Sisters review of Broken Compass by Jaymin Eve


From USA Today Bestselling Author, Jaymin Eve, comes a new chapter in the Supernatural Prison World ...

Maximus Compass is a vampire without direction. Without heart. And without soul. He lost his true mate in the great battle against the dragon king, and now must face life alone.

And yet … something is happening to his agony. It’s fading away, leaving him with barely a memory of the female he believed to be his one and only.

As his mind clears he starts to wonder if the mate bond had been nothing more than a manufactured ploy? This suspicion explodes within him right around the time he runs back into a certain wolf shifter.

Mischa Lebron is a complication he doesn’t need in his life. He can’t erase her from his mind though, and while memories of his supposed true mate continue to fade into mere shadows, his one night with Mischa is blazingly strong. But they’re not of the same supernatural race, so there’s no way for a true bond to exist between them.

Right?

When an old threat rips apart their pack, Maximus will come to realize that he would do anything to save Mischa. That the mate he thought was perfect and precious was nothing on the shifter he walked away from. Now Maximus truly has everything to lose.


Be warned that this may be a long ass review as both myself & Britt have reviewed Broken Compass, but when you've got a book as wonderful as this it's awesomeness is hard to condense to a few word's - J

When Jaymin Eve said that she was going to carry on the supernatural prison series with books for the rest of the quads & Louis, I literally jumped for joy, and did the booknerd dance (c'mon you've got bring out the booknerd dance for anything exciting that's book related). Whilst this book, and the rest of the books she's writing in this world, will not centre on Jessa & Braxton (my two favourite lead characters EVER) we still get to see them popping up in the book. To be honest, I fell in love with pretty much all the other characters in the series any way, bar a few, so I'm just glad Jaymin is continuing with this world.

It feels like forever since Dragon Mated was released, when it was actually only a few months. However I was able to jump straight into Broken Compass without needing to refresh my memory as to what has happened previously. Jaymin has mentioned that you don't need to have read the previous three books in the series to read this book as it's a stand alone, and I agree that you could read this book and not have to worry about what's happened previously. But then I think of how fantastic the first three books are and think that you should seriously read those books anyway as you're missing out on a load of awesomeness.

Broken Compass is Mischa & Max's story, Max is the vampire in the quads (Brax's brother) and Mischa is Jessa's sister and a wolf shifter. At the end of Dragon Mated, Max's mate Cardia was killed and we discovered that Mischa was pregnant with Max's child. I know, shocker huh! Max left town before Mischa had a chance to tell him as he needed to clear his head. Now we all know from any paranormal story that losing your mate is enough to turn you insane, if it doesn't kill you first. Your mate is the other half to your heart, your yin to your yang, your world, your soul and your one & only true love. There was one big question through most of the first three Supernatural Prison series. Is Cardia really the true mate of Max? I think most of us fans were really hoping she wasn't. First she was a bitch of the first class, second she did not try to meld into the Quads and Jessa's pack and third, she did not fit in anywhere, at all. I have to say that I may have breathed a sigh of relief when she died as particularly with Mischa being pregnant, I could tell it was going to get messy.

Now Mischa was another character that I, and I know a lot of fans had some ambivalent feelings towards. She's Jessa's sister, but for most of her life she never knew she was a shifter as she was living in the human world and she never even knew she had a twin. Now in Dragon Mystics, Mischa did some pretty stupid stuff, however in Dragon Marked I think we got to see a better side of her and maybe some more explanation into why. In Broken Compass we learn why Mischa acted the way she did and yes, the reason totally makes me forgive her for that. Also as this book is written in dual POV's from both Max & Mischa, which I totally love by the way and we should get more books written like this, we learn what makes Mischa tick, without her being overshadowed by the kickass and snort out loud thoughts of Jessa to divert our attention. Mischa is just as strong and stubborn as Jessa, but in different ways. Jaymin has done very well to write a character that can live up to the awesome (in my eyes) Jessa and lead a story and make us laugh in the way that Jaymin's characters are well known for doing. I warmed to Mischa so much in this book that she's now one of my favourite characters. Yes, I am now #TeamMischa

Jaymin has written another heart stopping, edge of your seat, unputadownable, don't dare interrupt me or you may get hit, book here. The action and story had me on a knife edge most of the way through the book and whilst we still had the 'piss yourself laughing' comments, we also had some more serious moments too and ones that had me catching my breath as to what would happen next. I really didn't think that Jaymin could top any of her previous books, but I think she may have gone and done it. I gulped this book down in one sitting and didn't stop to do anything, not even pee, that's how much I loved it.

If you're already a fan of Jaymin Eve then what are you waiting for, read this book already! If you've not read any books by Jaymin Eve yet then what are you waiting for, read them now! Trust me, you won't regret it. In fact I expect you'll thank me for introducing you to them ;) This is one of those books that you won't regret reading and that you'll want to pick up every year to read again.

Now to impatiently await for Jaymin's next book, which I'm hoping will be Louis story as I need to know what happens with him next.




Hey Rocking readers,
Brittaini here!
First I just want to say I wish I could ditto everything JemDazzle said but I actually DO have to say *something* to make my review space my own! Sooooo...
I don't even know where to start with this one. I knew.. KNEW cardia was a fake. That's probably my favorite confirmation. I always knew she was a snake. But I lived the way Jaymin twisted it. It was like blindeside -BAM- in yo' face. I can't wait to see how her sister plays into the next book.

Mischa: Now I always loved her character, I didn't know why; couldn't put a finger on it, but I did. I would defend her in fan debates and even easily forgave her when doodle head had her enslaved. I was so happy to see her finally accepted and come into her own. Jess is cool, but everyone already lives her. Mischa was just more relatable to me. I always knew she was a true mate too! So excited for this character.

I'm just going to say I LOVE Louis and his manly manliness, and when he gets his mate I will cry. Cry tons and tons of jealous tears.

The pregnancy stuff was perfectly written, and much needed. I cannot wait to see what compass babies mean for the future.

All in all it was another slam dunk for Jaymin! I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
I'm itching to get my hands on the next one.

PS Jaymin if your reading this, Louis needs to stay S-I-N-G-L-E until I can finagle my way into fiction land and beat off the other bitches xD

Jem's review of Shadow Born by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton


Chicago Police Detective Brooke Chandler is keeping a secret… and if she’s not careful, it could get her killed. 

Brooke is no stranger to the supernatural. In Chicago, vampires are just as prevalent as drug lords, and infinitely more bloodthirsty. So when her partner and fiancé dies in a mysterious fire while chasing down a lead in Salem, she suspects something dark and otherworldly is at play. 

Blessed with the ability to see into the past by touching inanimate objects, Brooke transfers to the Salem PD, hoping her talent will help her get to the bottom of things. Between dodging assassination attempts and being stonewalled at every turn, the going is tough. Add in a mysterious fae club owner with secrets of his own and a personal grudge against her, and it becomes nearly impossible. 

If Brooke wants to play in the supernatural sandbox, she’s going to have to roll up her sleeves and get dirty. But how many people will have to die for Brooke to discover the truth about her fiance? And is she even ready to know?

Wow did I enjoy this book. I wasn't quite sure that I would when I started reading it. I'm a big paranormal and urban fantasy fan and the very first chapter did not contain a lot of what you would usually find in one of those books so I was starting to think, oh no am I actually going to enjoy this? I needn't have worried at all as boy did this book draw me in and I consumed it like I do chocolate (which is in copious amounts as chocolate is  my blood)

Brooke, our main character, is a police detective who has transferred from Chicago to Salem as that is where her fiancé Tom was murdered and Brooke wants to investigate into his murder more. Brooke is already aware of some of the supernatural world, knowing that there are vampires out there and making sure she hunts them down, however she does not know what else is out there until she moves to Salem. Brooke is also hiding a secret about what she is capable of doing, but there are many secrets and mysteries about herself that are being hidden from her which we discover some of in this book, and will hopefully discover many more in books to come. She is also a spunky, sarcastic character and is not afraid to drop the f-bomb throughout the book, which doesn't bother me one bit as I am known to drop more of those than most people,  but be warned if you don't like to read books with swearing in.

Now one of my favourite supernatural beings are in this book, the Fae. There is one very hot, yummy, dark and brooding Scottish fae in this book that I myself would love to meet and I love the play between him and Brooke and hope that there is plenty more scenes with the two of them to come as they are hot together, but both are fighting what is undeniably an attraction between them which is one of my favourite kind of romances.

I really enjoyed this book and give it a full 5 stars out of 5. If I didn't already know that this book was written by two authors then I would never have been able to tell as the book flowed seamlessly. I'm already a huge fan of Jasmine Walt, which is how I discovered this book, and will now be looking up books by Rebecca Hamilton and definitely be giving those a read too.

If you're a fan of urban fantasy books then I recommend you give this book a try. I now have to sit and impatiently await for the next book in the series, which hopefully won't be too long dear authors as I'm dying to know what happens next.
