26844337Easy For Keeps
(Boudreaux #4.5)
by Kristen Proby
Kindle Edition, 100 pages
Published May 24th 2016 by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated
Adam Turner loves women. All women. Every shape and size, regardless of hair or eye color, religion or race, he simply enjoys them all. Meeting more than his fair share as the manager and head bartender of The Odyssey, a hot spot in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, Adam’s comfortable with his lifestyle, and sees no reason to change it. A wife and kids, plus the white picket fence are not in the cards for this confirmed bachelor. Until a beautiful woman, and her sweet princess, literally knock him on his ass.

Sarah Cox has just moved to New Orleans, having accepted a position as a social worker specializing in at-risk women and children. It’s a demanding, sometimes dangerous job, but Sarah is no shy wallflower. She can handle just about anything that comes at her, even the attentions of one sexy Adam Turner. Just because he’s charmed her daughter, making her think of magical kingdoms with happily ever after, doesn’t mean that Sarah believes in fairy tales. But the more time she spends with the enchanting man, the more he begins to sway her into believing in forever.

Even so, when Sarah’s job becomes more dangerous than any of them bargained for, will she be ripped from Adam’s life forever?

Rating: 4 out of 5 Wine Glasses

When Phoebe Meadows gets struck by a strange light in the stockroom of Macy’s, life as she knows it flies out the window. As if being hit by lightning isn’t bad enough, she’s accosted in the subway by a man with a missing hand, arrives home to find a raven on her kitchen counter, and her neighbor, Ingrid, shows up dressed like a gladiator hell-bent on protecting her.

Before Ingrid can shuttle her to safety, Phoebe is kidnapped and tossed into one of the Nine Worlds where she’s quickly forced to come to terms with what she is: A valkyrie. The only problem is, she has no idea what that means.

After a narrow escape, she finds an unlikely ally in Loki’s son, Fenrir. Together the valkyrie and the wolf must battle their way back to New York City and reach the valkyrie stronghold where Ingrid is waiting for her. But with danger and obstacles at every turn, she might not live long enough to learn the full truth about who and what she really is…

Linda's Thoughts:
"Let me get this straight," I said once I was settled securely on the rock. "I was struck by some kind of magical energy sent from Odin that shot out of the lights in the storeroom at Macy's, hitting me and knocking me into a pile of shoes? And because of that, I'm now immortal?"

#Interview with Jamie K. Schmidt, author of The Queen's Dance! (#Dragons #Romance)

Welcome Jamie! The Queen's Dance is the third book in your Emerging Queens series. Can you tell new readers to the series a bit about this book? What can they expect plot, pace, sex, etc.?

Hi Crystal!  Thank you for having me on your blog today.  The Emerging Queens series is about women who should have become dragon shifters at puberty, but because of a curse, were denied that development.  However once the curse is lifted, dragon Queens are sprouting up all over the place and it's really wrecking havoc with the status quo.  The plot of The Queen's Dance features Margery who wants to expose a dangerous drug ring that she had been tracking before her shift into a dragon Queen.  But because dragon Queens are rare, her protector, Remy doesn't want her to do anything to risk herself.  It becomes apparent rather quickly that this story is much more dangerous than she realized and both their lives are at risk.  During all of this, Remy a lake dragon without wings, and Margery, a sky dragon, are truly opposites who attract and while they know they have no future because of their differences they decide to act on their attraction but not fall in love.  It doesn't quite work out they way they plan.  It's a fast paced, steamy read.

#Review: Wickedly Ever After by Deborah Blake - 4.5 Wine Glasses

Series: Baba Yaga #2.5
Author: Deborah Blake
Format: Kindle, 66 Pages

Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5 Wine Glasses

Known as the wicked witch of Russian fairy tales, Baba Yaga is not one woman, but rather a title carried by a chosen few. They keep the balance of nature and guard the borders of our world, but don’t make the mistake of crossing one…

Having triumphed over a powerful enemy and ended up with both a wonderful guy—Sheriff Liam McClellan—and an adorable adopted daughter to raise as a Baba Yaga, Barbara Yager is ready to welcome her happily ever after.

But first she must bring Liam to the Otherworld and get the Queen’s permission to marry him. The Queen, however, is not so easily persuaded. She gives them three impossible tasks to complete in two weeks’ time—and if they fail Barbara will have to watch Liam slowly age and die like all humans, and kiss her happily ever after good-bye forever.

Linda's Thoughts:
"Couldn't I just take up juggling fire over a pit of alligators?" Liam muttered. "I think it might be easier."

The Tab and the Scroll with Cheryl Etchison of Once and For All (#Giveaway)

The Tab and the Scroll—

If you’re a civilian like me and don’t know all things military, you likely think someone wearing a Ranger Tab on their uniform means that person is an Army Ranger. Well, not necessarily. When I began researching the 75th Ranger Regiment for my American Valor Series, I quickly learned the difference between the Ranger tab and 75th Ranger Regiment scroll.
