My Fair Succubi: Jill Myles

It Sucks To Be Her…

Living as a succubus has a bit of a learning curve, but with sexy fallen angel Noah to scratch her sensual Itch, Jackie Brighton is finally starting to feel ahead of the game. She almost doesn’t miss her gorgeous vampire master Zane – or his sinful, teasing mouth. She’s trying to convince herself of that, anyway.

But Jackie’s past mistakes catch up with her, spinning her life out of control once more. Just as her friend Remy’s inner demon comes out to play, Noah and Jackie are arrested by the angelic Serim Council. When Jackie seizes the chance to escape, she falls right into Zane’s waiting arms. As she’s pulled into a game of cat and mouse between vampires and angels, she finds she must also finally choose between the two men in her life. Can she decide between Noah and Zane, or will she lose everything she’s ever wanted? Because there’s more at stake than just her heart…

Book 3 of the Succubus Diaries

#ISBN-10: 143918819X | #ISBN-13: 978-1439188194

Once again I was not disappointed in Jill Myles. Her Succubi series are erotic, hilarious, action packed, and full of passion. The heroine Jackie was turned Succubus without consent but tries to hold on to her moral fiber as much as any Succubus can. Noah and Zane are her lovers and they hate each other which makes for a great twist in the stories. Jackie seems to have it all. The itch comes upon her every two days and she must scratch it or risk dying. By day Noah tends to her needs and and come evening the very sexy Vampire Prince Zane takes over. The time has come for a decision to be made though. Will it be Noah or will it be Zane? First she must decide after finding out a secret both of her lovers have kept from her and it will change everything. When both Jackie and Noah are arrested we learn some Angels are not the Guardian Angels we think they are.

Remy is once again possessed by the evil demon and Jackie must save not only her but the world. To do this she must figure out a way to save both lovers, make a decision on which one of them she will keep and if she can even trust them, try and recover the ancient Halo and keep the Serim from killing her. I must say I was very pleased with her decision in the end.

Dreams of A Dark Warrior: Kresley Cole

Oh I can't wait. I love these books.

Reread: The Highlander Series by Karen Marie Moning

The Highlanders Touch by Karen Marie Moning

Lisa is only 23 and has to take care of her dying mother and works two jobs just to make it. Her life isn't what she planned but she has a job that allows her to learn and study artifacts at the museum which feeds her curious nature. One night as she is cleaning she falls asleep in her bosses office only to be awoken when he comes in and is discussing the great find he has made. Once the coast is clear she can't help but open the beautiful box and when she touches the object inside she falls right into 14th century Scotland and one very mad Highlander who has taken a vow to kill her.

Circenn Brodie Laird and Thane of Brodie is quite surprised when a female suddenly appears in his chambers. She is strangely dressed and holding his flask. He has been entrusted to protect it and other Fae Hallows, but the flask was lost to him while it was traveling with the Templars. Adam Black the Blackest Elf has made him swear to kill whomever has possession of the flask but Circeen has never killed an innocent much less a woman. Caught in a battle with himself and fulfilling a sworn oath, Circeen is at a loss for what to do. He also has a secret that could change everything between him and Lisa. He is immortal and has to find a way to tell her.

Duncan and Galen Douglas, Circenn's trusted advisors, take bets on Circenn sticking to his sworn vows or breaking them, something he has never done.

Lisa and Circenn fall in love but Lisa can't help but think of her dying mother, who is still in the present day. Lisa is just the woman to bring The Brodie to his knees and he is just the man to fulfill Lisa's hopes and dreams. She doesn't quit looking for a way home and when one is given to her, she can't decide what to do but the Queen of the Fae takes the decision from her.

While off to war Circenn is struck a devastating blow, his bond with Lisa is severed. Fighting like a Beserker he battles the English like no he has in no other battle. When he comes home he finds Adam his assumed enemy and threatens to kill him with one of the Hallows he swore to protect and never use against the Tuatha De Danaan.

Adam convinces Circenn to come to terms with his heritage and much to the dismay of Circenn he must embrace his father and his ways. Although Adam's powers have been severed by the Queen, for the time being he is able to show Circenn the way's of sifting time and finding his love.

Although I like the first two books in this series, I must admit this one really hooked. Karen Marie Moning has mixed romance, time travel, and Fae with just enough of each. Adam Black is the only one with a grown son of mixed heritage. There are few humans who can see both worlds and they are kidnapped as babies.

Most people who don't care much for romance reads seem to really enjoy this installment of the series so I can recommend these books to such a broad range of readers. Well lets go read about a Druid Highlander.

Stay To The Lights,

To Tame A Highland Warrior

A Celtic Legend
Legend tells that the power of the Berserker - preternatural strenght, prowess, virility, and cunning - can be bought for the going rate of a man's soul.

Not everything you see is the truth. Sometimes what you think you are seeing is something totally different.
Wishing on stars do come true for Highlanders and their women. Grimm wished Adrienne for Hawk and now she has made a wish of her own.

Grimm formerly known as Gavrael Roderick Icarus McIllioch has received a letter from his former foster family and it's a summons he can not refuse. Grimm's time for hiding from his fate has come to an end. He must journey to the Lowlands to protect Jillian, although he has no idea from what.
Once at Caithness Grimm, Quinn de Moncrieffe, and Ramsay Logan realize they have been brought to have Jullian decide who she will wed. Grimm afraid to reveal his true self pushes Quinn and Jillian together. Jillian has other ideas.

Jillian's childhood love has returned but wants nothing to do with her. She plans on changing that. She has a decision to make and it's complicated by Grimm's refusal to acknowledge he wants her just as much.

Someone wants Grimm dead. The MaKane's wish to annihilate all Beserkers and will stop at nothing to see this happen. Will the legends come true and the Day of the Beserker reign again or will the MaKane's succeed and destroy Grimm before he can claim his one true mate? For once a Beserker finds true love it's for life and there will be no other for him.

Will this wish on a star come true for this Highlander or will the truth of his true nature tear the woman he loves out of his arms?

The Holiday Season

This isn't a post on books. I just wanted to write about how I was feeling today. I woke up and was feeling a little down. You see my dad passed away 18 years ago on Christmas and I really miss him.

As the day has went on I am feeling better though. It's been one of those where you really don't do anything but sit and spend time with the family. We have watched a few movies and just been lazy. Ah refreshing!

The mail finally ran and I got more beautiful cards in the mail. To my great surprise I got my package from Janet Casdsawan. A beautiful Chotki bracelet and Zvevda necklace from her Vampire Academy collection. Now that is the way to make anyone's day better.

Well that's really all I wanted to say. I am going to spend some more family time and watch Date Night. Hilarious movie and sure to bring spirits up.

Hugs and Blessings

Reread: Beyond The Highland Mist Review

Beyond a Highland Mist

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beyond The Highland Mist introduces us the the world of the Fae, Hawk, and Adrienne. Queen Aoibheal incites the wrath of Adam Black, court jester, and the Fairy King Finnbherra against Hawk.

Sidheach James Lyon Douglas better known as Hawk is a renowned ladies man.One night him and his captain of guards are looking at the stars and Grimm wishes upon a fallen star. His wish is that a lass will be able to resist The Hawk and say no to him. Adam hears this and the King and he sets outs to find the perfect woman to bring this about and extract revenge on an unknowing Hawk.

Adrienne De Simone is the perfect woman to turn the Hawk down and Adam whisks her back in time to the 16th century. She finds herself in the lap of a huge obnoxious man and learns she is to be wed and she will now be known as Janet Comyn. Mad Janet to be more exact.

Once at Dalkeith Upon The Sea Adrienne sees the Smithy and thinks he is most beautiful until she turns and sees her new husband she has never met. Her hatred of beautiful men causes her to instantly dislike Hawk and so begins the journey to love and intrigue. Nothing will ever be the same for either one of the newlyweds. Someone is trying to kill Adrienne, Adam is set upon Hawks destruction, and destiny plays cruel tricks upon the lovers. It will take the Queen of the Fairy stepping in to set things right.
