Midnight Secrets (Killdaren Series Book 1) by Jennifer St. Giles

Is he her darkest dream…or most terrifying nightmare? Cassiopeia’s dreams have never been her own. They are harbingers of death. Yet when she learns her gentle cousin, Mary, has disappeared from a remote castle on the Cornish Coast, the official story doesn’t fit with Cassie’s prophetic dream. The mystery compels her to leave the safety and middle-class comfort of Oxford to take a job as a maid in the house of Killdaren. There she discovers more than the daily indignities the working class must endure. There’s a darkness surrounding Sean Killdaren, a man born with his hands at his twin’s throat. Whispers of the murderous Dragon Curse…and an aversion to daylight that adds vampire to spine-chilling rumors. When Cassie encounters him in the shadowy corridors, his touch should make her tremble in fear. But that’s not what makes her knees shockingly weak. It’s the spell of desire he casts with his wicked green eyes…and the small acts of kindness that soften her heart. The closer she comes to the truth, the greater the danger. Mary isn’t the only woman lost to the Killdaren brothers’ curse. And as a killer lurks ever closer, Cassie wonders whom she can trust…and if she will be the next victim.

This full-length novel of Josiah Reign covers eighteen years of his twin boys growing up and coming into their own as young men. From youthful misadventures that reveal his quiet son Jason’s power to heal others, to Joshua’s charismatic personality and surprising gift, Josiah experiences both love for his sons and valiant struggles in his turbulent marriage to Lena.

It is not without heartrending, increasing sorrow and outrage that Josiah never truly comes to terms with the Triat’s prophecy that one of the boys will be sacrificed for the good of the Mani vampires. But Josiah is still a fighter at heart, though he hasn’t seen battle action for a while, and it will be over his dead body before anyone lays a hand on one of his sons.

Though peace and harmony have reigned for years on the island of Helena, the new governor of the island of Attica poses a threat to everything and everyone that Josiah holds dear. It’s getting harder to call up an army and Josiah goes solo and dusts off his fighting skills to protect his family. He also examines his beliefs and questions the Triat’s control over who lives and who dies.

But who is a friend and who is a foe? After one of his sons is snatched, the clock is ticking toward the decisions that could change the dynamic of the Mani royal family forever. Jason unwittingly begins a war that will pit Mani against Mani, and now, involve his cherished sons and his best friend, Tommy the werewolf.

Still a lover and a fighter at heart, Josiah finds out that the only way to survive and save the Mani race is to decide whether to bring his sons completely into his world and risk their lives by revealing the bitter truth.

The Rise of Kyro (Werewolf Love Story Book 2) by H.T. Night

Book #3 in the Entwined Series

Tommy is back. Now, he just needs to figure out what it means to be a werewolf while keeping it a secret from young Josiah, his enthusiastic fight prodigy with a superhero complex. Calling himself Kyro to cloak his true identity as an MMA fighter, Tommy walks into a special kind of bar, and a whole different world opens to him, and with it, a complicated new path that threatens what he loves most: his professional fighting career, and Maya, his true love.

Soon, Tommy meets new Carni friends who help him along the way, but finds out that some are friends and some are just out to get him. The werewolf society has rules he doesn’t even understand yet, and Tommy needs to figure out who has his best interests at heart and who just wants to manipulate him for their own evil agendas. Ordinarily, a fight or two would take care of any dangerous situations, but Tommy’s greatest challenges rise to the surface as he realizes that it’s going to take more than brawn and MMA fighting skills to stay alive. When danger threatens all that he holds dear, he learns to keep his friends close and his enemies closer.

One thing’s for sure: Maya will never use Tommy. Tommy and Maya’s love reaches new heights as they struggle with the sacrifices and reap the gifts that are the foundations of a serious relationship. Maya asserts her own power in the relationship and even proves that she is as smart as she is beautiful, as she accepts that the man she loves is a werewolf, but she is not.
Will Tommy’s rise to alpha werewolf status among his own kind be an asset? Or will drive a wedge between him and everyone he loves?

Gothic Gates Dante’s Voice sample ARC by R.M. Simone’

Gothic Gates series by R.M.Simone’ A contemporary Goth romance that weaves into the back ‘story’ that makes it a Classic Noir read. Dante is the leading man in this story of his. He is an immortal by way of Alchemy that gave him this gift of eternal life. Within that process is a history of the GOTHIC world that he plays with as his business is set in an elegance of Gothic Enterprise that are events for the elite, raising money for his charities and allowing him to bridge both his own worlds. It makes a perfect cover for him.

Enter his love, Samantha Devon that he waited to once again find with her incarnation and a post college business vacation to Paris with her best friend Deanna. Dante’ sees Samantha in Paris in a courier’s office requesting her to deliver a package of music for his soiree in Loire Valley. It all BEGINS there.

She is unsuspecting of who he is, his motives and the passion between them that awaits re-kindling. Book 1 opens this GATE and beginning story how this meets.

This sample ARC gives the reader a view into DANTE’S soul, some understanding of who he is and the love he carries for her while navigating his own life, his enterprise which is a shield for the planetary power sword he wields in this Life CHESS game of a master strategist player. History of the Goth cities he positions his events in are pearls for the reader as research into this gives a chronology of politics, art, architecture and mystery of this genre.

I would invite the reader to read Book 1, the beginning meeting and Book 2 when this couple romantically FALLS IN LOVE in Venice. No one does Romance as Dante’ does.

But all, without fail, describe those men as being big and muscular, more handsome than any man has a right to be, with eyes capable of mesmerizing and seducing any woman who falls under their spell. Some of those people add a knowing wink, others a warning not to venture too near the castle, and to certainly keep her distance from the men living there.Visitors staying at the same small hotel as Chloe talk of seeing bright lights and helicopters landing on the mountain late at night, and of hearing strange noises that sound like the roars of wild animals.There was a story here, Chloe was certain of it.Whatever the mystery is regarding Pendragon Castle and the men who live there, Chloe decides she isn’t leaving Wales until she’s discovered exactly what’s going on.While exploring the area around the castle, Chloe is challenged by the dark and taciturn Nathaniel.
