Desired by Nicola Cornick Book Review


Desired ( The Scandalous Women of  the ton Book 4 ) 


Her wicked ways were the talk of the tonTeresa, Dowager Marchioness of Darent, is rumored to have exhausted her four deceased husbands with her insatiable needs. So it's no surprise that every rake in the ton wants to bed her. If they only knew…through clever marriages to men who would ask nothing of her physical self, Tessa has remained rather innocent in the ways of the bedroom. But now she's on the verge of losing everything and wants to take care of the stepson she's grown to adore.Enter Captain Owen Purchase. The handsome American adventurer has come into the title of Viscount Rothbury. And the rumors surrounding his injuries at sea suggest that he could fit Tessa's requirements. But little does Tessa realize that the gossipmongers are wrong. She just might lose her heart, and her desires, to the most unlikely of men.










My thoughts




Tess Darent is depicted as the scandalously notorious widow. She has had many husbands and is on the hunt for number 4…


After a bad run of events, Tess swore she would only marry a man who was impotent and for name use only. Someone to hide behind her drawings as the notorious ( Jupiter ) and save her stepdaughters name.

On a hunt through the brothels looking for Jupiter , Owen meets and catches Tess Darent unaware. The connection is instant... Owen wanders why this beauty is hanging out the Brothels window waiting to be rescued none the less. Owen is intrigued by Tess Darent...

Owen Purchase - Inherited the Title Viscount Rotherbuy has returned to England to help his Aunt and also run his tittles for the accounts and lands. Upon meeting Tess Darent he has come to a few conclusions of his own…

After a turn of events Tess Decides that Owen will be husband number four and proposes marriage to him, in name only, thinking that Viscount Rotherbury is impotent and her heart and bed is safe.

Owen doesn’t back down, and to Tess’s shock realizes that her new husband is definitely not as impotent and she first thought. (( snickers )) He makes his lust for her evident, but is not forceful in doing so... As he well knows something is not right – she is hesitant and scared for some unknown reason for physical contact... Owen decides he will take his time, and show Tess what love can be like.
……

Desired is fuelled with danger, betrayal, lots of loving, lusting, lies and unbridled happenings.

I really enjoyed this historical fiction that Nicola has put forth. Not really knowing much myself about this era, I read this in almost one sitting –enjoying it much so. Enjoying also the many shades Of Tess we also encounter and the characters were put forth.

I lusted myself for the handsome gentleman Mr Rothbury lol. – he was good looking, funny and every thing Tess could benefit from a marriage. (( His patience and manner and witty ways were even quiet amusing at times.))

Tess was a headstrong woman, with brains despite what he fellow town folk thought, I liked that she didn’t bother with what people thought... It was to protect the ones she loved she did so. She was certainly her own person. I liked that Nicola put forth Tess has her own woman, her own thoughts, and feelings. She was certainly not afraid to back down..

The love that blossomed between Owen and Tess was gradual along with the storyline. I liked that it wasn’t a wham bam thank you mam romance .I love a man that will woo a woman loll. And Mr Rothbury certainly did that, but at the same time, tantalized and teased Tess in his own ways.

Overall, a sensual historical romance with a little heat to warm the pages, an intriguing storyline to go with and characters I'm sure you will enjoy..

I will be certainly reading more from Nicola...

Blood Avenged - Gabrielle Bisset ( Sons of Navarus 1 ) Book Review

Welcome today I am posting a review for Blood Avenged by Gabrielle Bisset  -  Her first book in The Sons of Navarus series. Find as follows the Blurb, cover and My thoughts !!


BLOOD AVENGED


I am everything you desire.
I am everything you fear.
I am lust and appetite.
I am vampire.


I am everything you desire. I am vampire.

Powerful and manipulative, Vasilije does as he pleases. A vampire beholden to no one, he takes what he desires, drinking deeply the pleasures this life has to offer.

When one of his own is staked, Vasilije must travel to New Orleans to exact his revenge. There he meets Sasa, a beautiful woman who arouses him like no other has for centuries. Vasilije's need for vengeance is equaled only by his passion for her, but what he finds in his revenge is just the beginning...







My thoughts !!




Blood Avenged will have your blood pumping and your loins tingling. ;) grins -

A Sizzlin hot romance, with a great storyline entwined and characters that I’m sure will drag you into the pages.

Blood Avenged is soaked with the world of the Paranormal, smokin hot sex between an Empath and A vampire ;), and a great start to the Sons of Navarus series.

An engaging plot - that high tales you into the paranormal world, suspense and action and of course smokin hot romance.

I enjoyed Vasilije - he was dominant, strong, and an alpha kick arse male, who got what he wanted. ((these traits I love in a VAMPIRE) Something I will NEVER tire of.

Sasa - is an empath I Found her to be a well rounded character, strong, and determined and brave . A little insecure about herself at times, but what woman isn"t lol.

Gabrielle portrayed all the emotions well between the characters, and even vivid sexy details for all those who like it hot.

I eagerly anticipate the rest of the series, Gabrielle has set up the end of the book up with information to give us insight into the characters we have yet, to get, to know. I found this very helpful.


Overall, Vampire stories I will never tire of, but its always great to read something new and refreshing. !!

And for all those who like there reads Hot, and erotic Im sure you will Lust over Vasilije ((( V ))



I AM VAMPIRE - I AM EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE *** DARN RIGHT ** LOL. 






Rating 4  out of 5 drops of blooooood !!!!! 










Blood Avenged can be brought over at Amazon here $3-99

Inspiration for the Black Opal Series

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for letting me join you on the blog today.  I’ve really been looking forward to meeting the readers here.

So, our lovely blog host suggested I might shed some light on the inspiration for my new release, Lie to Me, and the team of Black Opals that make up the series.  I’m going to date myself, but… here goes.

As a young girl, I spent countless hours dogging my father’s heels.  (I learned way more about plumbing and house repairs than I want to know as an adult as well, but that’s a different subject.)  One of the things we shared a passion for was James Bond.  I remember being scared initially of Jaws, in Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me, but eventually that giant with the crazy teeth snagged my curiosity.  Early Sean Connery was simply amazing… and all of this culminated in a huge passion for spy thrillers.

It also ingrained the belief that “spy movie” must include the ultimate bad guy “Russia.”  Now bear with me before you start screaming… I don’t hate our Moscovians. 

Years later, as a young adult, my riding trainer was from Russia.  He believed in my riding endeavors and spent countless hours at the barn with me talking everything horses and all about his homeland.  That fascination with Russia has stayed with me as I’ve grown into my adult shoes.

So when I sat down to write the first book in the Black Opals series, knowing I wanted a high-stakes thriller with a whole lot of smokin’ hot passion, all of this pointed me to including the things I am most fascinated with and the things that bring the fondest memories.  In many ways, it was like coming home to an old friend.

I was able to dabble in Moscovian culture, create the baddie I’m most comfortable with, sympathize his actions with a true love of the people and culture, and show him not like 007s out and out evil antagonists, but with humanity and even a touch of gentleness. As Lie to Me developed I was able to scratch the surface of some current issues in Russia today, and the research there was simply fascinating.  Learning the political strife, the current conflicts, and so forth helped me to add another layer to Sasha, my heroine.

In the end, I journeyed through bits and pieces of things I’ve come to love and was able to play in a sandbox that I have always been uber-curious about.  And while the series won’t remain embedded in Russian politics, we’ll return now and then.  We’ll also be adventuring to some different places as well.

But be warned -- it’s not for the faint of heart.  If you don’t like heavy action, shadowy danger, and conflicting alpha attitudes that often lead to steamy encounters between the sheets stay far away.   I, however, hope you’ll come along for the ride.

~Tori St. Claire



A little about Tori ..... 

National Bestselling author Tori St. Claire grew up writing. Hobby quickly turned into passion, and when she discovered the world of romance as a teen, poems and short stories gave way to full length novels with sexy heroes and heroines waiting to be swept off their feet. She wrote her first romance novel at seventeen.
While that manuscript gathered dust-bunnies beneath the bed, she went on to establish herself as a contemporary, historical, and paranormal author under the pen name, ** Claire Ashgrove **  Her writing, however, skirted a fine line between hot and steamy, and motivated by authors she admired, she pushed her boundaries and made the leap into erotica, using the darker side of human nature and on-the-edge suspense to drive grittier, sexier, stories.
Her erotic romantic suspense novels are searingly sensual experiences that unite passion with true emotion, and the all-consuming tie that binds -- love...


 Books in the series.




 Tori St. Claire's dangerously naughty debut novel, a body of secrets is entwined with a body of lies...and deception is part of the game.
As a member of the CIA's elite Black Opals, Natalya Trubachev must live a lie, working undercover as the lover of Dmitri, a Russian mob boss. His business is trafficking vulnerable Las Vegas strippers overseas for twisted sex games. Natalya's business is to blow the ring wide open and bring down Dmitri and his American contacts. But the stakes are raised when she learns that the next target is her own sister Kate, a dancer in the famed club Fantasia. Only now does Natalya realize how personal her mission has become, and how far she's willing to go to complete it.
The manager of Fantasia is Brandon Moretti, an undercover detective who keeps a close eye on his girls, and an even closer one on his sinfully sensual newest hire. For Natalya, working the club could be the break she's been waiting for. But for Moretti, Natalya is a possible link to a killer. Only he never counted on her being so lethally seductive or so dangerous to get close to. As every forbidden pleasure between them is stripped away, his own secrets threaten their security, but it's Natalya's secrets that could destroy them both.



Book two 


After helping to break up a Russian human trafficking ring as part of the CIA’s elite Black Opal team, Alexei Nikanova’s newest assignment is to rescue one of the stolen women and return her to her father. When he arrives in Dubai, he discovers his target is Sasha Zablosky—a woman he knows all too well, and who has haunted him ever since their one unforgettable night together. But he finds Sasha reluctant to leave her Sheik, the only true friend she’s ever known. Only Alexei can’t give her a choice.

With their yearning roused by intrigue, Alexei and Sasha can no longer resist and spend night after night in forbidden pleasure. Soon Alexei finds himself falling for her even as he battles a shadowy menace to protect her. But Sasha is no innocent. She has a past darker than she could ever admit or that Alexei could ever forgive. And it is about to explode into her life once more. Now, as the lies they tell themselves—and each other—pull them deeper into a perilous desire, what began as simple passion becomes a love certain to destroy them and end the lives of countless innocents.

Wisdom Tree - Mary Manner Book Review & Tour








Welcome to the Tour for Mary Manners. Her Book Wisdom Tree. Find as follows The book cover, blurb, My review and Author Bio for Mary. I must say its always a pleasure to read Mary's book, inside every book is a message. 


WISDOM TREE 


Sometimes the last thing we think we need is exactly what God has planned.

After the death of his parents, Jake Samuels has enough on his plate—including a fledgling church to lead and a mischievous younger brother to raise. The last thing he needs is a rambunctious woman to contend with.

Carin O'Malley is dealing with the death of her brother and a new job as an English teacher at East Ridge Middle School where Corey Samuels reigns as King of Chaos. The last thing she needs is to fall in love with a man...especially a handsome and complicated preacher like Corey’s brother Jake.

But when Corey's antics toss Carin and Jake together, the two must draw from God’s wisdom to find refuge in His perfect plan for them.





My Review 



Mary Manners always put forth a compelling read. Filled with faith, hope and prayers that is blended throughout her stories.  


Wisdom Tree is filled with Christian beliefs, romance, heartbreak, loss,friendship and faith.


Carin, Corey and Jake have all lost loved ones. Corey - 13 years old and heartbroken is not taking the death of his parents well, and his brother Jake - pastor of the local church is now trying to be a parent and big brother and finding it very hard. He leans on his faith to get him through hoping that in time Corey will be able to believe, move on and be a happier 13 year old boy.


Jake meets Carin - her faith is troubled - she too has lost loved ones, and is feeling very sombre and alone. With the help of love, and friendship Jake, Carin and Corey follow the path of God - to find happiness and a happily ever after they never thought possible in there time of grieving. 


Guilt lies and betrayal can have someone questioning their faith, but being around the right people, can lead you to a little ray of sunshine. 


Mary Manners always put forth a wonderfully scripted story, filled with the belief of God, and what he does and can do ... when you follow his path. Even if - he may take your loved ones from you. 


I don’t find that Mary pushes the religious points in her stories; they are heart-warming and may even have you sitting back and wandering to yourself as well. I dont read alot of this genre but always Enjoy Mary's stories. 


The characters were heartfelt and very realistic in life, the struggles in life when you lose someone close, the ups and downs that life throws at you and believing life has more to offer. 


 The dialogue flowed smoothly, and the meaning of this book well outlined and felt. Overall I really enjoyed this book ;) and would recommended to any who enjoys a  sweet romantic read filled with a little Wisdom of its own. 




Rating  - -4/5

Lie to Me - Tori St Claire - Book Review Tour Release

Today I have for you Lie to Me by Tori St Claire . Find as follows the review , cover and blurb. Lie to me is book two in this series, Stripped being Book one.


LIE TO ME 

After helping to break up a Russian human trafficking ring as part of the CIA’s elite Black Opal team, Alexei Nikanova’s newest assignment is to rescue one of the stolen women and return her to her father. When he arrives in Dubai, he discovers his target is Sasha Zablosky—a woman he knows all too well, and who has haunted him ever since their one unforgettable night together. But he finds Sasha reluctant to leave her Sheik, the only true friend she’s ever known. Only Alexei can’t give her a choice.

With their yearning roused by intrigue, Alexei and Sasha can no longer resist and spend night after night in forbidden pleasure. Soon Alexei finds himself falling for her even as he battles a shadowy menace to protect her. But Sasha is no innocent. She has a past darker than she could ever admit or that Alexei could ever forgive. And it is about to explode into her life once more. Now, as the lies they tell themselves—and each other—pull them deeper into a perilous desire, what began as simple passion becomes a love certain to destroy them and end the lives of countless innocents.



My thoughts. 


Undercover as one of CIA’s elite Black Opal team members , Alexei  Nikanova is working to stop a Russian human trafficking ring. Here he meets Sasha Zablosky, also under an alias. A week of hot loving -  he turns her over to the trafficking ring.  With much regret. 

Alexia  is fuelled with regret after what he had done, and after two years he is sent to retrieve her. She has been in his thoughts and Sasha brings out all the emotions within him, a week was not enough.  But finds his need to succeed in this mission - is just overwhelming.   They  follow  a  trail of betrayal , deceit and lies and not knowing whom they can trust. A love that seems inevitable yet almost unachievable in more ways than one. …  Past lies , and Secrets may be the end . 

Lie to me is a riveting and gritty suspense filled with erotic moments  and fueled along  with engaging characters. A lot of hot sex, ménages, and full on vivid descriptions. Think erotic - Think SMOKIN ~ 

 So if you not into the nitty gritty ** hot sex ** and vivid descriptions then this read is not for you...  The sex between Alexei and Sasha showed us the depth and definition between the pair, the emotions well portrayed and put forth to give the reader an understanding of their relationship. 

The pages are drenched in  erotic , romance, and  suspense that will certainly leave you on the edge of your seat. But eagerly flipping the pages for more.  I’m sure in certain scenes your eyelashes will be curling and your heart beating in overdrive...  

Both characters, Alexei and Sasha have both hidden secrets, pasts –   tortured  souls in their own ways, this in turn may just affect their relationship on more levels than one.  How can love grow with so many hidden secrets and the unknown? The story  of these two alone will certainly have you anticipating every page. 

From within the first chapter – Lie to me will have you eagerly  hooked  . With a fluent flowing storyline, and heat that will scorch the pages ** wink wink** the story is not stop GO GO...  goooooo.. 

 I have not read the first in this series, but didn’t find I had missed out on anything. Enough detail was put forth for me to not feel I had missed the que =  I will go back to read it for sure.


((( take a good look at the cover, my friend and I were baffled – at first and then amazed at the shadows. )) very clever !!!!!!  there are actually three different shots in it ;) 

I like the way in which Tori has set up the ending of this book for the continuous on of her next story .


I rated this book 4/5 ..

Heat - Toe curling and panty bunching  :) 



This book was supplied to me via the publisher - author for an honest review.

ADULT CONTENT WARNING: 18 and Over


Fury radiated off Alexei’s body in hot waves as he forcibly ushered Sasha through a white painted door, into a spacious suite at the Palazzo Vecchietti. He kept going through the living area, past the rich plum-colored furniture, and into the bedroom. His heel connected with the door, sending it slamming shut so forcefully a painting on the wall rattled. Sasha didn’t know whether Grigoriy followed or not, her head spun with a chaotic mixture of defiance, rage, and a smidgeon of fear.
He spun on her, startling her back a step. She braced for the inevitable storm that came next. She didn’t fear he would actually hurt her. But she knew his words would wound.
For several seconds he merely stared, his angry eyes searching hers, seeking answers to questions he had yet to ask. She swallowed. Waiting. Anticipating.
Creating answers faster than she’d ever thought possible.
“What the fuck were you thinking?” He flung a thick arm sideways, indicating the wide window. “Kadir’s still out there. If I hadn’t seen you, hadn’t caught up to you, he could damn well have you stuffed in the back of some car, heading to God knows where! Dead maybe!”
She bit down on her tongue, biting back her own angry retort. Alexei took another step forward, forcing her backward in order to maintain eye contact. Quietly, logically, she answered, “Kadir doesn’t want to kill me.”
“No?” Alexei invaded her personal space again, standing so close his chest brushed against her breasts. “Just why has he been shooting at us then?”
Meeting his challenging stare, she gave into the defiance working through her bloodstream. “He’s been trying to buy me. If he wants me, he’ll take me, but he won’t kill me.”
Alexei’s eyes darkened with a deeper emotion, turning his light green gaze the color of rich jade. His jaw worked furiously, his temper barely restrained. At his thigh, one hand curled into a tight fist. “Is that what you want? To go back to silk sheets and the lustful desires of power? Did you like it there, Sasha, a slave to whatever Saeed wanted to do to you?”

She would have struck him if she’d had room to gain enough power to make an impact on his poisonous mouth. Instead, she flattened both hands against his chest and pushed. Hard. “Go to hell!”

Alexei threw off her hands by wedging his forearms between them. With lightning fast reflexes, he grabbed her wrists and thrust her backward, imprisoning her against the wall. The air sped from her lungs in a wild rush. His body pinned her in place from chest to toes. “You almost compromised my assignment, Sasha. I don’t take that fucking lightly.”

Writhing to escape his viselike hold, Sasha glared at him. “Is that what I am, Alexei? A mission? Is that what I was in Moscow? Something to be completed. Forgotten the minute you kicked me off that truck.”

The pain that flashed through his expression almost made her regret the accusation she knew was off the mark. But the need to unravel the layers he hid behind and expose the feeling he sought to keep disguised drove her onward. She held his stare, unwilling, unable to back down. “When you handed me to Amir, your job was done. Just one more girl in a chain of nameless, faceless others.”

He heaved in a deep breath and his lips pursed so tight they turned white. For a moment, she doubted her sanity in pushing him so far. He looked ready to kill.

Then, his fury cracked, giving her a full glimpse of the anguish she had suspected he suffered, but never truly witnessed. The same torment filled his hoarse whisper. “No.”

Before she could absorb his confession, his mouth crashed into hers. Nothing about his kiss was gentle. His teeth nipped hard, his tongue tangled desperately. Where his chest pressed into her breasts, she felt the shudder that rocked his body.

Alexei tore his mouth away, his lips moving toward the base of her ear as his hips sank into hers, his cock nestling in the tight space between her legs. A shock of pleasure hit her like a semi truck, and she speared her fingers into his long hair, holding on, grounding herself against the flick of his tongue, the scrape of his whiskers, the sharp edge of his teeth.

“I sent someone back.” His hand smoothed over the curve of her hip, down her thigh, drawing her leg up to his waist. He held it there as he ground his erection against her clit. “Back for Irina.” Another tremor rolled through his body and vibrated into her. “Because I fucking need this."

Jamie Magee Blog Tour - Witness Tour Book review & Giveaways

Hi Everyone and Welcome to the Blog Tour for Witness by Jamie Magee. Today I have a great giveaway and my review for Witness. Find as follows the cover and blurb. Witness is book two in the series, See being book one. 







Forgetting who you are is hard, but not as hard as remembering. Remembering that you have no idea how to face your demons, how to save the lost.
Charlie is at a sacred threshold.

The ‘glass box’, as she calls it, is slowly falling. Her childhood has ended. The moment she has yearned for, the moment where she can go and do anything, anything at all without seeking permission is now. She’d dreamed of this time, all of her friends had, but now that it’s here, she doesn't know which way to run, or if she should even run at all.

Charlie knew that running would be a goodbye forever, and she didn’t want that, she wanted to freeze the time she was in, to stay in the calm before the storm, the illusion that she could out wit the ones who seek her, hold the one she loves, and play the music that gives her passion. She’ll soon discover no one can hide from their fate, that time does not stop in place, and that whether she chooses to perceive it or not, the darkness has come.

What Charlie feared most, losing him, is a threat now more than ever. A realm, a dark and twisted dream world has called him, and now she must fight to save him, and others like him. Standing in her way is a soul from another life, a boy that promises that he will destroy her world, to save her life. With this threat in hand, with the dark path that her friends are on, Charlie must fight to find a way to leave, to trust that beyond her dimension there are souls that can help her, help all of them. The only question is, will she find them before it's to late, and if she can't, how is she going to use her gift, the gifts they all share to save them.







My thoughts


Forgetting who you are is hard, but not as hard as remembering...

.
Witness is book two in the series  and Jamie  has certainly taken us on a journey of discovery with this one. Charlie is still trying to recover from the outcome in the last book, and with such devastation, she is finding it hard to  SEE ..   

Not being able to remember or see - is certainly taking its toll on her, and also affecting her every day becomings.  All she wants to do is protect the ones she loves , but not being able to do so  is affecting her in more ways than one. 

She meets a new person- (( mysteriously hot )) lol -   who promises to help her but at dire costs. She is still unsure whom she can trust. Trying To help Draven from the dark side is affecting Charlie as well. She finds that remembering is not easy.
 
Jamie still gives us the music aspect throughout this read, entwining music within the storyline, giving us a plot that is gradually paced, and intriguingly suspenseful to read on.  This series that Jamie has created is one of a kind. I can guarantee the plot and outline of the stories alone will have your interest piqued.  She has crafted her characters with flaws, not perfect – but this comes along realistic to me. Characters that I have and still enjoy much so.

Questions from book one is put forth, and we are certainly filled with many aspects during this read.

Jamie has put forth her emotions and descriptions well, even the darker side – the ghosts that whisper... That kind of gives me the creeps, but fits so perfectly within the story outline.

Whisper is  a riveting and suspenseful read , filled  with engaging characters that are woven throughout.  Worlds entwined,  and living in a world where not all as it seems.  Being able to see – doesn’t always  have its advantages !  What would you do if you could see the past, look into the eyes of someone and SEE….. ??

Overall a great addition to the Series. Jamie Magee is one author I follow and will continue to read.

I rated this 4/5 


A little about the author...
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

Blood of The Demon by Rosalie Lario Book Review



The blog Tour & Giveaways -  For Blood of the Demon starts today feel free to pop on over to Rosalie Lario's blog HERE  to follow the tour. Today I have my book review for Blood Of The Demon .. 


Book Info:

Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.

Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.




My Review.

Blood of the Demon was a fast paced read filled with Sexy as sin – Hybrids and Demons. . Lario created an intriguing storyline, with interesting characters, all created with their own personalities and abilities. Four brothers work as bounty hunters, they have been sent to Earth to find and recover * The Book of the Dead * before Mammon tries to start an apocalypse with the dead. ** Zombies** they must find the Heir of the Egyptian bloodlines – if the book is not found they must then deal with the forth comings.

Keegan is sent to retrieve the book, but upon meeting Byrnn is unsure if and when the time comes he will be able to destroy the Heir even if it means to save the world from Mammon. He found that his attraction to Brynn is like no other but as he tries to avoid that pull, he only finds himself wanting her more. The attraction between Brynn and Keegan is smoking hot!! Lario has put for this well, giving the reader - heat in all the right places ((wink wink))

Brynn is gifted – she can read ancient objects and also has the ability to project power from her palms. But upon meeting Keegan and his brothers she now realizes she is not alone in the world with her special abilities, that these men are not at all what they seem. Brynn is strong, and kick arse and Brave. I really enjoyed her character – She was not a whiny poor me character but put forth with Character and strength.

Lario has scripted her characters well, giving them all their own definition and depth in this read. The Demons of Infernum - is filled with all the goodies one could want in a paranormal read. Sexy moments, great storyline- intriguing plot, and a fluent and flowing storyline that will keep the reader intrigued till the very end. Lots of action, humour and banter thrown in to break up that dark side that lurks throughout and also with many vivid details, to also give the reader insight into the world in which she has created. I enjoyed the closeness that Rosalie has created between the brothers, this was heartfelt and also heartwarming and the connection she has entwined througout the story gives great depth into there relationship.

The plot for this book has been set up well, giving us detail to go with for future books in this series.

A fantastic debut for Lario and I certainly look forward to more of her books and the sexy hybrids that she has created.

Angels,Demons,Fae, and Sirens... A great blend of Smexiness and strength , yet darkness that lurks....

Be prepared to be drawn into the pages, and immerse hours later, sated, and content with The World of Rosalie's Hybrids - Demons scurrying through your thoughts. Sexy men will always linger a little while longer (( snickers ))...
