Delaney Murphy has always known she’s the Devil’s daughter. And although the title itself is a burden, she never expects to inherit all her father’s infernal abilities. When her newfound magic begins to poison the people closest to her, Laney must make a choice. To protect the world from the worst she can do, she leaves everyone she loves behind and builds a new life for herself, alone, in a place where she can control the urge to give in to the magic living within her.

But when she recognizes a familiar pattern in a string of murders, Laney leaves her peaceful, isolated life behind and goes on the hunt, unleashing a threat she never dreamed possible. Confronting this menacing specter could mean giving in to temptation and becoming the one thing she fears most. Will she use her magic to do the right thing, even if it means hurting the ones she loves?

Review: Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dance with the Devil
(Dark-Hunter #3)
by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Publication date: Nov. 28, 2003
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Rating:

Zarek’s Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don’t suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can’t trust anyone…not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I’m tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

Review: Bad Boy Blues by Saffron A. Kent

Bad Boy Blues
by Saffron A. Kent
Publisher: Self-published
Publication date: April 11, 2019
Genre: Romance
Rating:

Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world — just one — and his name is Zachariah Prince.

In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.

She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.

It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.

But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.

Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

Spring has sprung!


I’m linking this post to Sunday Post, and It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

 

It’s finally spring and I couldn’t be happier. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind winter, but if I’m being completely honest, I’ve been dying to see what kinds of plants the nurseries in my area will be getting in. Not to mention, I tried ordering plants over the winter months and one arrived so in shock that I could do nothing but watch it die a horrible and sad death. I also won a gift card to an Etsy plant shop that has been burning a whole in my pocket since DECEMBER! Yeah, I know. I have problems. Trust me, you wouldn’t be the first one to tell me I have a plant obsession.

In other news, I finally got back into reading! It’s been so long since I’ve wanted to sit down and read. I have just been having a hard time focusing and I just wasn’t feeling it. It didn’t help that I was picking up a lot of mediocre books. None of them seemed to wow me or really draw me in. However, there have been a couple of series that I used to read many moons ago, that I’ve lost touch with, and I’ve recently been catching up on them. Now I’m requesting books on Netgalley, accepting review requests, and picking up stacks of books from the library. I’m really hoping that my reading mojo is fully back because I got a little nervous there as I watched my long list of back-up reviews dwindle down to just a few.

Review: Tracker’s End by Chantal Fernando

Tracker’s End
(Wind Dragons MC #3)
by Chantal Fernando
Publisher: Gallery Books
Publication date: Aug. 11, 2015
Genre: Romance
Rating:

The third in a sexy romance series from the bestselling author of Saxon and Toxic Girl about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

Tracker is everything I’ve ever wanted.

I see him. I’ve watched time change him.

I’ve been patient, but he still hasn’t noticed me. Not the way I want him to. The more time I spend with the MC, the more I understand.

When you want something, you have to take it. You have to fight for it.

And Tracker is more than worth fighting for…

Review: Arrow’s Hell by Chantal Fernando

Arrow’s Hell
(Wind Dragons MC #2)
by Chantal Fernando
Publisher: Gallery Books
Publication date: June 16, 2015
Genre: Romance
Rating:

Being the younger sister of a Wind Dragons MC member isn’t as great as you’d think it would be.

I can’t escape the details of my brother’s exploits.
No one tells me anything.
Men who know who I am tend to stay away from me.

And worst of all:
The members of the MC are off-limits.

When Arrow catches my eye, I make it my mission to make him happy again.

When I fall head over heels in love with him, I just hope he will be there to catch me.
And that my brother doesn’t kill him.
