  Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It's also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious night club that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he's approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King and leader of the Brotherhood. Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood-even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him-and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was- or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call up on both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate. Xhex, a symphath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between her and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mate.

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either. When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul. As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy

Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been a heartbroken shadow of the vampire leader he once was. Brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel, he fights again with ruthless vengeance, unprepared for a new tragedy. Seeing his beloved in dreams—trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld—Tohr turns to the angel Lassiter to save his former mate. The only way to rescue her is for Tohr to love another. As war with the lessers rages, and a new clan of vampires vie for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between an unforgettable past and a hot, passion-filled future. But can his heart let go and set all of them free?

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another.... Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand. Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions... but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together... finally become one.

Sun God Seeks Surrogate? 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Sun God Seeks…Surrogate? (Accidentally Yours, Book 3)
3 of 5 stars false
When 24-year-old Penelope learns of a new miracle drug that could cure her ailing mother, it’s the answer to her prayers. Until she sees the cost. But for every door that closes, a window opens. In this case, the window calls herself Cimil, and she’s quite possibly the most insane person Penelope’s ever met. Could it be because this complete stranger just offered Penelope one million dollars to carry her wealthy brother’s baby?
But Cimil’s brother isn’t your everyday millionaire. In fact, he gives new meaning to the word hot.


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
This is another fun installment into the Accidentally Yours series.
We start of with Cimil causing more chaos by roping Penelope into being a surrogate mum for her brother, the sun god, Kinich. Penelope is very adamant that her womb is not for sale, however all sorts of interesting hilariously confrontations occur, that may have swayed her mind, including meeting the delicious Sun God himself.
That is not good enough for Cimil however, and she has many back up plans in place, her devious nature knows no bounds.
However something goes wrong and Cimil's visions of the future disappear which could mean the end of the world.
I would just like to start by saying I love the light hearted, humorous way these stories are written and this one is no different. The conversations are fast paced and the verbal banter and inner monologues are highly entertaining, I was turning the pages just to say what somebody would say next.
Characters from previous books were back to entertain us and add new dimensions to what was going on and I loved to see how they were going.
The introduction of new mythological characters was great, angels and angry naked leprechauns, hahaha( no they weren't in the story but they exist in this world), it definitely kept me intrigued as to what other things they could add into this world.
Poor Penelope our new main heroine of this book, I felt sorry for everything she had to take in, but man did she take it in her stride, I really liked her as a character. Therefore I was a little disappointed in the ending. I got there and I was thinking okay, things are about to get good and there will be my happily ever after, ahem I mean Penelope and Kinich's happily ever after.... and there it was.. To be Continued. Noooooo! We better get more of their story in the future!!!
Even though we are left with a cliffhanger of sorts, it also gave us the beginning of a few other stories that I am looking forward to reading. Cimil and her Roberto, hahahah, finally maybe someone to tame that crazy goddess? Viktor and Penelope's mum? Tommaso, so many stories to be told and hopefully all in this same witty format. I am really looking forward to seeing what will come next.

The Accidental Call Girl 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
The Accidental Call Girl 
1 of 5 stars false
When Lizzie meets an attractive older man in the bar of a luxury hotel, she's amused to discover that he thinks she's a high class call girl on the look out for a client.
The fact that he wants to hire her is a fantasy she can't help but give in to – John is an expert at kinky bondage games. But as Lizzie learns the pleasures of submitting to the hands of a master, what will happen when he discovers that Lizzie is far more than she seems...? 


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Lizzie gets bored at a party and decides to go to the bar at the hotel where she meets John. John thinks she is a prostitute and wants to hire her for the night she doesn't correct them. He ends up hiring her for the time he is in town on business. The two of them grow closer and it becomes more than just sex. I did not like this book at all, I thought Lizzie was naive and made some really dangerous and stupid decisions. John was an older man and instead of finding him lust worthy I just found him creepy. Lizzies two friends/roommates came across as flat, they were more of a nuisance than anything else. The author did write a few interesting and imaginative love scenes. However I couldn't get over the utter ridiculousness of the plotline to enjoy this book.
