Dragon Heartstring A Vale of Stars Prequel by Juliette Cross

Demetrius Cade has long since let go of his prejudice against Morgonkind, the dragon hybrid race his father taught him to hate. But what he never saw coming was the Morgon woman who would finally teach him to love.

Shakara Icewing has watched Demetrius Cade from afar for years. Known as the most eligible bachelor and emotionally unavailable in all of Gladium Province, she sees him as the aloof, arrogant brother of her dear friend. But when they finally meet, she isn’t sure she can handle how deep and how fast they both fall.

An old enemy resurfaces and once more threatens those Demetrius loves. When Shakara plans to speak before Parliament against business tycoon Aron Grayson, she puts her own life in the line of fire. Demetrius will stop at nothing to protect the woman he can no longer live without.

From the onset of this series we have been on edge whenever Demetrius Cade enters the room. Known to be a reflection of his bigoted father, most non-humans are wary of him. He’s all business: serious and overly ambitious when it comes to running the family empire. In a world where Morgons are just trying to be seen as equals and not some “other less than”.  Having a dragon hybrid as a nephew has changed all that for Demetrius. His heart is now opened and he’s ready to embrace a new way of thinking, especially where Shakara Icewing is concerned.

Shakara, a Morgan Healer, has been sneaking side glances at Demetrius Cade for a while now. He’s so formal and rigid, yet utterly captivating in unexpected ways.
And for whatever reason, there is a connection when they finally come face to face. It’s immediate, undeniable, and intoxicating all at once. What culminates is a fantastic read with an underlying thread of civil uprising in this world of humans and dragon kind.

Cleverly written, Dragon Heartstring ranks high on the fantasy must read list. With a parallel to real life current events wrapped in a fantasy world, it lends itself to a more believable feel overall.

Doctor Bad Boy (Frisky Beavers #2) by Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller

A pediatric doctor with impeccable bedside manner during the day and a dom with a devastatingly kinky bedside manner at night! GAH! Take me to him now– I think I’m having palpitations! LOL!

I LOVED this read. Loved it! Fun, flirty, and feisty is how I describe these two. Meeting and spending the night together has become a life changing event for both Max and Violet. You MUST (not really, but really) read book one in the Frisky Beaver series to truly get the full impact of Max and his Violet obsession.

Honestly, I’m having a hard time even writing this review. I don’t want to inadvertently give anything away. I highlighted throughout this book, but find myself not wanting to spoil the funny little quips and adorable moments that are peppered throughout it. With the abundance of bed play and scenes that take place, the moments of levity really are spot on, making this one of my favorite reads in this genre for the year.

So, do yourself a favor. Grab book one, if you haven’t already. Enjoy the story of Gavin and Ellie while also getting to know the good doctor known as Max Donovan. Then have a defibrillator on standby when you begin Doctor Bad Boy. BDSM PERFECTION!

I give it 5 stars with a smirky orange juice smile!

The first time I met Violet Roberts, she gave me her submission for the night. The second time I met her, it was across a boardroom and man, was she pissed.
Now she insists we have a “conflict of interest”. She wants us to “move forward like grown-ups.”
But I can’t forget our single, scorching night together—when what I wanted and how I wanted it wasn’t a problem, because it nailed all her kinky buttons, too.

Max Donovan is a dirty, dirty man. Deliciously so. But the former child TV star turned renowned paediatrician and best friend to the prime minister is also my client.
One of us needs to be responsible, and it’s not going to be him.
So why can’t I forget how utterly incredible it was to be at his mercy? And what am I going to do when he takes his pursuit to the next level?

* A serious case of a one-night stand gone wrong (but not until after it went very, very right).

* Healthy boundaries and a double-dose of will power.
* Should that plan fail, the second course of treatment would be an air-tight contract and a solid cover story.

* Real doctors and lawyers will likely be appalled at the professional infractions inside this (thankfully fictional) erotic romance. We recommend they start with Prime Minister, the first book in the Frisky Beavers series. By the time they finish Gavin and Ellie’s book, they’ll be so enamoured with Max that they’ll forgive his transgressions in the pursuit of his filthy happily ever after ending.


The next highly anticipated novella in the Searching For series, a romantic spin-off of the Marriage to a Billionaire series fromNew York Times bestselling sensation Jennifer Probst.
When Isabella MacKenzie tries to move on from her disastrous past, Officer William Devine is determined to show her that love is the only way to heal. This sexy enovella, the final installment in Jennifer Probst’s heartwarming Searching For series, follows the high-powered women of the popular matchmaking agency Kinnections, located in the small, picturesque town of Verily, NY.

These Royals will ruin you…

From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.

Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.
They may be right.

With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.
