This Debut novel was provided too me by the author for my honest review and I have to say it rocked my reader...

I read it with baited breathe, starry eyes, and blood pumping at many a scenes. It hooked me from within the first pages.

I enjoy a shifter romance – filled with exhilarating and powerful connections, lust, love and smoking hot scenes. This book did not disappoint. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and the ending I just wanted to pull my hair out of frustration, and needing
book two. LIKE NOW!!! Sob sob……


Rachel has jam packed this story will lots of action, adventure, mystery, heartbreak, love and new discoveries and for those who like their reads hot – there are many loving moments that will have you panting …

There were some holly hotness – and well written sexy – smoking passioate scenes, that will not only have your panties in a twist but have you purring along with that Black Panther. ** purrrrrrrrrrrr**
So for all those like some tango within their reads this will please you ! ** blushes**

We follow Lexia on a journey of discovery – we see her coming to terms with what is inside of her and at times trying to take over, but Lexia is fighting the darkness that wants to consume her.

However at times – it’s like a raging river, just wanting to pour through her blood. Take over – consume her body and her soul. We see her fighting her calling many a times. But also see it be unleashed and let me tell you she kicked some serious arse !

The blood running in her veins is strong – determined and vengeful , at times for all the right reasons to protect the ones she loves... We see many heartbreaking moments for Lexia and I have to say I felt for her at the loss of a loved one. Her normal life seems not so dull and boring compared to the life and supernatural beings, she never knew existed before.


The plot was fast paced, easily flowed and was well put forth. The story was well written, dialogues all ran smoothly and continued on smoothly.

Rachel effectively created a great balance within the story – all her secondary characters given their own places within the story and also giving us a laugh or two along the way.

We were given mystery and mayhem – secrets were revealed. And the ending doesn’t get me started... I eagerly await the next instalment and to see where this new shifter blends in. (( Intrigued ))
I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Lexia and Linc. Many a times, I wanted to pet his velveteen coat,
listen to him purrrrrr… sigh - The author has given us a hero – hotty to swoon after, one whom loves dearly and protecs without thought.

We are shown depth into the characters along the way – and definition into whom they are. This I like to see in a read, filled with emtion so that as a reader I can feel within the pages.
The descriptions were well fleshed out , making it a hot, action packed read on many occasions.

Unique filled action packed story,filled with love, loss and betrayl.

Heart-wrenching, romantic, steamy and simply unputtable-down.

Fantastic
first book in the series and I eagerly await more.
 
 
 
 

About the Author


I've being reading books for as long as I can remember but I never thought about writing until I read Nalini Singh - Slave to sensation which is the first book in her psy-changling series.

At first I just wrote fan fiction until one morning I woke up with a story of my own. Lincoln and Lexia where born!

I spent 6 solid months writing and re-writing and now their story is ready to go out into the world.

I have lived in England, New Zealand and currently live in QLD Australia but to me England will always be home.

I've been a dish washer, Admin assistant, horse groom and now spend my days looking after my 2 children and writing as often as I can.

Stalk Me!

The Chieftain's Curse - Frances Housden Book review




Euan McArthur is a chieftain in need of an heir.

While still a young a warrior, Euan incites the fury of a witch. She retaliates with a curse that no wife will ever bear him an heir. As he buries his third wife and yet another bonnie stillborn son, Euan can no longer cast her words aside.

Morag Farquhar is a woman in need of sanctuary. With a young relative in tow, Morag flees the only home she has ever known to escape her brother, Baron of Wolfsdale, and find sanctuary in the MacArthur stronghold. Pronounced barren by a midwife, Morag is of little
value to her family, but a Godsend to Euan, a lover he can’t kill by getting with child.

Years ago, chance drew them together, and tangled their lives in ways they could never have imagined. This time their destiny lies in their own hands, but it will take courage and strong hearts to see it through to the end.



 






Original and interesting storyline set in the 11th century Scottish Highlands. We see the relationship build between Morag and Evan which I enjoyed much so and are taken into the world that Frances has created.

As a reader I had to get use to the authors writing style, being a first read of this authors work.   It took me a little longer to absorb the words within the pages - With it being set in a world so different to our own, but  I took my time reading it and paying attention to all detail.


The saucy moments were ** erotic**  ** waggles eyebrows** Love a good erotica and Frances did this well.

Frances portrayed her characters well and the storyline with interest and depth. Even the secondary characters were well fleshed out.

This story is  Filled with many secrets, at times as the reader I was unable to work out which way the story was headed but at the same time I enjoyed this.

 I
love stories set in the highlands, as well as a sexy Hot Scottish man.   ** grins ** The author did a wonderful job of putting forth the descriptions and characters in this story as well as the story set within the medieval times.


The lives of the main characters and families are all entwined within the story giving us a vast variety of conflicts within the pages – this gives
the reader a few twists and turns to make it an interesting read.

An enjoyable read – filled erotic romance with second chances, lies, manipulation, regret, and betrayal.

The Cheiftain's curse is a well written Erotica - with some smokin hot scenes. So be prepared when reading for it to get a little heated and passionate ;) Loved the erotica. Well detailed and ** sizzlin ** blushes.


Will be reading more of this authors works in the future , especially the Highland stories.


Thank you to Harlequin Australia for supplying me with a copy of this book for my honest review.

Excerpt 1

Rated Adults-only, 18+

 

Her perfume filled his nostrils and a strange roar in his eardrums slowed his thinking until he couldn’t concentrate, couldn’t do anything except sip from her proffered well of moist sweet nectar when he leaned in to take the kiss. Her lips were both spicy and sweet at the same time. The taste was exotic and new, and it blended perfectly with the familiar whiskey-laced breath of his friend as Hugh joined them in a three-way kiss like none he had ever experienced before.

Time ceased to exist as he dipped into her mouth and supped. The ever-present vestiges of his anguish receded as hunger took its place. Desire. Craving. That was all he knew, especially when her moan vibrated across the back of his throat. First one, then the other of them plunged with a tongue here, nipped there with eager teeth. He sucked at the fullness of her bottom lip and felt in turn the delicate flicker of her tongue as she rasped it across his own.

Demanding, then asking. Dominating, then pleading. The dance went on and he couldn’t tell who was in control. Or out of it. He didn’t care. If she wanted to be in charge, that was okay by him. He would happily go wherever she led.

Her body was as soft as it had promised to be, and yet somehow hard and unyielding. Earlier she’d been wearing a white dress, but now she was naked between them. How was that possible? He groaned and heard an answering sound erupt out of Hugh before his friend leaned down to take one of her long pink nipples into his mouth. Blindly he reached out and grappled the other breast, weighing its enticing heaviness in his palm.

Slow this down. Catch our breath.
