He's the powerful CEO. I'm the know-it-all intern.

Things went further than they should have, but I don't have any regrets. Well, maybe just one...

I went and did the one thing he told me not to – fall in love with him.

Now I have seven days to prove my trust and devotion. Turns out money is a powerful drug, but love is even more addictive.

To hell and back . . .
Though he has vampire, demon, and Viking blood rushing through his veins, Ivar Kjeidsen’s soul-crushing trip to hell broke him in ways he can barely fathom.  One vow keeps the deadly immortal standing: To rescue the vampire brother who had sacrificed freedom for him.  To do that, Ivar needs the help of a brilliant physicist with wary brown eyes, fierce brilliance, and skin that's way too soft.

Dr. Promise Williams understands the underpinnings of the universe but has never figured out the human beings inhabiting it.   Her function is to think—and not feel—until she’s touched by a vampire who’s nowhere near human. The primal hunger in his eyes awakens feelings in her that defy calculation. As she shows him the way to step between worlds, he brands her with a pleasure that could last more than a lifetime . . .

If only it were that simple. Unbeknownst to Leena, the undying ones are bound by magic to complete their contracts, and Noc cannot risk his brotherhood of assassins...not even to save the woman he can no longer live without.

Lexi's Thoughts:

Pokemon + a fantasy romance = KINGDOM OF EXILES, and it’s fantastic. Martineau gives us what we’ve been missing for years, a debut Urban Fantasy with a strong magic system, great world building, and a fantastic romance.

2.5 Wine Glass #Review of Magician's Hoard by Celia Lake

 



45480894Title:  Magician's Hoard
Series:  Mysterious Charm #3
Author: Celia Lake
Format: Paperback/eBook, 261 pages
Publication: April 30th 2019 by Celia Lake

Secrets in the stones
Proserpina Gates thought she had a straightforward research question.
A widowed bookseller keeping things running on her own, Pross has taken on a research project to help ends meet. All she wants to do is help her client discover the truth about the stories of a hidden hoard on the family estate in Norfolk. But the Research Society has changed, and the only person who shows any interest in helping her is Ibis Ward.

And he's rather prickly about it.

Ibis knows that his colleagues don't care for him.
He's not their sort at all, especially since he's both half-Egyptian and competent at research. His life has taught him to expect that and nothing more. Instead, he spends his time using his fluency with hieroglyphs, his archaeological skills, and his gifts for magic to translate and describe objects in the Petrie Collection.

Despite himself, he's intrigued when Pross comes to him for help. As it becomes clear that there's more going on, he finds himself trusting her more than he has trusted anyone in years.

Together, they are drawn into a web of magic, mystery, and those who would use magic and power for their own ends.

Magician’s Hoard is a standalone romance of 67,000 words with a happy ending (no cliffhangers) and the world's most adorable hedgehog. The Mysterious Charm series explores the magical community of the British Isles in the 1920s and can be read in any order.



Kimberly's Thoughts:
Pross' is a widowed bookseller and when someone approaches her with a research project, she can't help but take it on. When she realizes she needs help, she goes to the Research Society. There she gets directed to someone named Ibis.
Due to racism and classism, Ibis is stuffed into a corner in the offices of the Research Society but when Pross gets sent up to him, it will set-off a chain of discoveries that will shake the very fabric of their lives, in more ways than one.
