FEATURING…Tharah Meester!

I would like to introduce Tharah Meester, an up and coming romance author that has a wonderful outlook on life and love.  She is from Austria and is genuine, honest, and focusing on ALL types of love and romance. She is currently running a Kickstarter fund to translate her novels into English for us all to enjoy.

Following a public humiliation, Hyacinth Black is on the verge of being beaten to death by his father. Of all people, the man who is commonly referred to as ‘Your Hideousness’ comes to his defense; but his intervention has a price. Hyacinth must marry his rescuer.

Since the murder of his brother, Gavrila Ardenovic has been on the trail of a secret society, but in the city where he is only mocked, he has few allies. Therefore he keeps his distance from others and is used to suppressing any hint of emotion.


Will lies and intrigues gain the upper hand or can Hyacinth succeed in battling the shadows of the past and break through his husband’s cold-hearted façade?

A VAMPIRE’S TALE by Maya Tyler

Good intentions sometimes lead to horrific mistakes, intertwining paths of fate.

Following her passion for writing, Marisa Clements sacrifices a steady paycheck and benefits, to submerge in the world of make-believe and fiction. At least it paid the rent…barely.

Desperate for the truth to be revealed and to end his miserable existence and suffering, Corgan Halton exposes his true nature to Marisa, coercing her to write about the facts of vampires and demolish any misconceptions. Knowing she was fated to be in his future, he expects her to aid him in discovering eternal peace, even though it might lead to her own death.

But the best intentions led to other choices, paths that Corgan would soon discover after caring for Marisa. Emotions guide one’s decisions and when a group of rogue vampires put them both in harm’s way, Corgan decides to put her safety first, even as far as obtaining the assistance of wizards and his maker, to keep her safe. Therefore changing his priorities and putting life before death.
Maya Tyler has shown us a new truth in “A Vampire’s Tale” that loneliness can destroy even the strongest predators but love can also save them.

This was a fun and refreshing read and I give it a 4-star for making me fall in love with Marisa and Corgan, wishing and hoping their love would conquer all.

Dream Hunter by Maya Tyler

 

Dream Hunter by Maya Tyler instantly snagged me into the storyline on the first page, well really the first sentence.

Ms. Tyler’s descriptions and character development are unique and exciting. She uses a great skill of giving birth to characters and a story that will drop you into a fantasy world where we have guardian angels watching over and protecting us.

There is a something or someone after Cynthia and her troubles begin when a strange package is delivered to her office. Her world changes yet again when her dream lover becomes reality and is determined to protect her from the force after her.

Her path drops another twisting turn when her reality changes from a fantasy guardian destined to protect her to a semi rewind where a police officer wants to question her about the strange package.

This is definitely the best novella I have ever read and I am chomping at the bits because I can’t turn the page to begin chapter one of a full novel. Looking forward to reading the rest of Cynthia’s story and find out more.

I give Dream Hunter a Four-Star and encourage to not believe all the negative reviews. My gut instinct tells me this was just a sip, a taste of something more intriguing to come.

NightWalker by Ime Atakpa

 

The Thrush Family has suffered a terrible curse for three hundred years. The most recent victim in the family, Hubert has been inflicted and tortured by the night walks.

Watching his parents mourn his disappearance, he discovers himself being tortured continuously by the eerie silence and inability to be heard or take action. After much pain and self-loathing, he decides that nothing is impossible. He will find a way for restoration and end the torment his parents as well as himself endures.

NightWalker by Ime Atakpa is extremely well written and has perfect grammar and editing. The author has a skill of developing the story and the characters. The main character, Hubert, faces a dilemma and though the storyline is well groomed, the beginning is drawn out, almost drowns out the plot and direction.

The pieces will fall together and hook you in if you give it the chance. The author has left an opening for Hubert’s story to continue and I am hoping Book 1 is just an introduction to the real jewels of this adventure.

My advice and suggestion for the author are to lighten the load of over describing the minute details in the beginning and keep it simple. Sometimes less is more.

I give NightWalker by Ime Atakpa a rating of Three. This is NOT a bad rating, it means I like the story and the characters but there are improvements that could be made.

UnGraceful Cat – UnSeries Book 1 by B. A. Gabrielle

Young Amelia Fafnir struggles to fit in her family and win her mother’s approval and love.  However, she is in constant competition with her sister, Carissa.

She stumbles across a major discovery in the home economics room and is transported into a world she never knew existed.  A reality where Spirits exist and are trapped to roam forever.  While they are here they try to prevent other humans from suffering from their same fate by establishing contracts or a pact and fulfilling one wish.

Amelia is introduced to Ethel, a spirit that bonds with her for one such request but in the crazy realm of the Underworld, they become friends.  Like a puzzle, Amelia receives bits and pieces that eventually fall into place, revealing that her Spirit friends have an evil enemy, the Dark Fairies and they are after Amelia, but the Spirits also have darker secrets too.

Which side will win her over?

B. A. Gabrielle has created a unique fantasy realm that takes you on an adventure where you never know who you can trust and who are truly your friends.  This was a fun and quick read and kept my attention.  Sometimes in the paranormal world of reading, you often find yourself reading the same scenarios, just with different names and places.  I love that this was a different type of world that I was privileged to visit.  I give a 4 – star and looking forward to reading more from this skilled author.

After her mother’s death, those visions rise to the top and she soon discovers that the visions are real and always have been. The apparitions persuade her that she has to come to their world, that she is in grave danger.  She learns there is a dark force after what she possesses.  Almost too late, she will discover the secrets of the dark force and the possession they are willing to kill for.

I highly enjoyed reading this Willows of Fate (The Lands of Sun and Stone Series Book 1) with its unique characters and its magnetizing twists and turns.  When reading a story, my first attraction is if the author’s words will pull me into a movie where I see pictures instead of black words on a white page.  That is exactly what the author, Suzanna J. Linton has done for me.  Now I crave for a sequel to find out what has happened to Desdemona.

I recommend this book for anyone who wants to escape reality and jump into a world of action, romance, and betrayal.
