Arrows's Hell by Chantal Fernando book Review

 
 
 
 
From bestselling author Chantal Fernando, the second book in a sexy romance series featuring the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them. 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. .

My review



After reading book one I had to say I was eager to jump into more of this authors work and her world of The Wind Dragons Motorcycle club.

Dragon's Lair gave us the foundation for future characters within the series and to see where Arrow had been and his story continues on and in this instalment.



The prologue is told from Arrow's point of view and gives the reader a little insight as to what happened in certain moments of this life. The first chapter was the concrete , in setting this story and was great from a readers point of view. The author has given him depth and info into his life , his past hurts and still the anger he dwells on.

Anna 's character gains strength as the books progresses at first she came across unsure, a little fragile possibly but at the same time witty and opinionated .

The connection we see between Arrow and Anna is magnetic and instant connection. I enjoyed the build up to the relationship. Nothing quiet as good a cat and mouse scenario.


“You were made for me, because you not only take me as I am but make me want to be a better man at the same time.”

The writing was well delivered, smooth and fluent and to say the ending was a surprise .. A twist that was certainly UNPREDICTABLE !!

I really enjoy an added twist, as a reader you can say WTH where did that come from, it wasn't just jammed in there for the sake of it , it blended well and gave the story that wow factor.

The Mc world that Chantal has created is certainly appealing and intriguing. It makes you want to know more and absorb the words in one foul swoop and jump on the back of one of those bikes and feel the wind.

this author started my love for the MC genre and I have read at least ten or more books in less then two weeks ..  ** lol **  so I do Love me Hot Biker men and look forward to more in the series.






UNPREDICTABLE, WELL DELIVERED AND INTRIGUING.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster for supplying me with this book for review for my honest thoughts and opinions.

EXCERPT FROM BLOOD FLAME BY CARIS ROANE

Iris had that feeling again across the top of her shoulders that a vampire was watching her. She had excellent instincts, but every time she either hunted through her garden or checked the night sky, nothing.
She also had an instinct about who the vampire was. James Connor, also known as Officer Connor, of the Crescent Territory Border Patrol.
Yep, Connor was here again, which caused her heart to beat hard in her chest. Vampires killed witches as often as they could, but in this case an attack wasn’t what she feared.
No, the dull thuds of her pulse meant something far worse. Against all reason, small tendrils of pure desire moved over her breasts, down the insides of her thighs and curled around her sex.
A year ago, she’d seen Connor at a crime scene, one that involved a couple of human children. Until that moment, she would never have believed a vampire capable of any kind of compassion. She honestly thought that the alter had removed all tender emotions from those humans who had become vampire.
That night, she’d been called to the same scene to make a full report on behalf of the Five Bridges Tribunal, the central governing organization for which she worked. She served as a Tribunal Public Safety officer and as such could move freely among all five territories without too much fear of getting assassinated in the process. Murder among the five alter species was rampant.
At the crime scene, with so many vampires present, she’d remained in the shadows, content to merely observe and gather data.
Because of the bloodsuckers, her own killing instinct had risen to the surface, vibrating like a motorcycle engine on overdrive. Her fingers had ached to touch some pressure-points that night and rid her world of a few sets of fangs.
She hated this aspect of being a witch, the driving need to strike another species down. But every one of her kind, once having gone through the alter, felt an intense pressure to self-protect. She’d come to accept that what she experienced was a basic survival mechanism. Vampires and shifters killed witches, her kind returned the favor, though for her she’d only done so when attacked. However, that didn’t change how much she detested her new nature.
The crime scene that night had torn her own heart into a thousand pieces. Two children were found at the Phoenix entrance to Sentinel Bridge, a boy and a girl, about nine or ten. They’d accidentally gotten hold of one of the flame drugs that carried the alter serum, and had begun the process of change. But children couldn’t handle the sudden physical trauma involved. Death always followed.
They’d held hands as they’d died, facing each other. It had broken Iris’s heart, seeing their twisted bodies, fingers entwined. She’d wept quietly, and that’s when Connor had arrived.
She’d seen him many times at various crime scenes, but never like this. He’d taken one look at the pair then dropped to his knees, covered his chest with both arms and rocked. She’d had no idea what had gone through his head at that moment, but she’d felt his compassion in waves hitting her over and over, wrecking her heart and somehow causing her to become fixated on a damn vampire.
As much as she’d come to loathe his kind, she’d ended up craving him with a terrible need.
She was tired of thinking about him almost constantly, though. More often than not, her thoughts turned into elaborate fantasies that usually involved his fangs buried in her neck and his cock plunging in and out of her sex. Sick as hell.
Tonight, she was determined to change all that.
With a fresh lime in her hands, she moved into her workroom between the house and her garden. She set about creating a spell that she should have used about eleven months and four weeks ago. She had no doubt, once completed, the formula would end her obsession.
She fired up her cast iron pot-belly stove, using elder wood. Once blazing, she placed the blade portion of her hatchet on top. She needed the metal hot enough to slice instantly through a thick wax candle.
On her worktable, she cut the lime in half, then squeezed the juice onto a purified elder wood tray. She rolled a thick black candle in the juice and invoked Connor’s name several times until she felt the spell move into place. At the same time, she made use of one of her most powerful incantations. She then picked up the heated hatchet and held it aloft ready to slam the blade through the thick wax and break Connor’s hold on her.
She felt her witch power racing through her veins, giving her a heady buzz. The swirl of power let her know how potent the spell was. She had no doubt it would work.
With her arm poised and ready to strike, a soft longing ran through her, of things hidden behind the veil of death. Her sister came to mind and she felt, as she often did, a trail of loving fingers down both cheeks.
She closed her eyes, her throat tight. “Violet. Are you here?”
A wind from the garden whipped through the room, smelling of thyme, the herb of love she always associated with her sister. Tears tracked down her cheeks.
Violet was long dead, killed in a vampire massacre nine years ago. Yet, in this moment her sister’s spirit was here, in Iris’s workroom.
“Violet,” she whispered again.
Once more, the wind blew in a strong gust and the scent of thyme thickened in the air. “Don’t you want me to end this obsession?”
This time, the fingers once more touched her cheeks while the wind blew. No-o-o-o, came softly into her mind.
Iris talked with Violet a lot, but her sister had never communicated with words before, not once in all these years. Yet, she had now.
She lowered the hatchet and returned it to a slab of cast iron on the long butcher block counter near the sink. It would need time and a safe place to cool.
She felt frightened suddenly. Something was coming and Violet was part of it, as was Connor. She walked back out to her garden to try to calm down, but again she sensed Connor was near, watching her.
But why? She knew the reasons she’d fallen into an obsession with him, but why did he so often hover above her house?

Dragon's Lair - Wind Dragons MC Series - Chantel Fernando Book review

The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.

Or should I say, someone?

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.

I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother.

And I’m screwed.
  
 
 
 
My review
 
 
 
 
Wind Dragons Mc Series Book 1

I devoured this book in one sitting. What can I say I am a sucker for bad boys with big hearts and foul mouths. * waggles eyebrows **


The Mc men are hot, dangerous, sexy , hunky tattooed men with a wraith for vengeance when wrong is done by them. 
 
 They are a band of men and who stick together to protect family and what is there's .

After a night filled with passion Faye's life is changed forever. She is whisked into a life - a lair - filled with men and women of all types.
 
A lifestyle she was sheltered from, is now  filled with   men with foul mouths and big hearts and testosterone raging off the charts.  Guns, sex, criminal activity and secrets that need to be kept within the fold.

This life is Not something she envisaged for herself, but in the predicament she was in the best place for her to be looked after.

Dex her lifelong crush, the man of her dreams, her best friend from next door from a young age, takes her under his wing . The friendship takes off as easily as it ended, with Dex wanting to take care of Faye and shelter her from harm ..

The storyline was fluent and delivered well. Twists and turns along the way, loss and heartache , revenge and sorrow lots of hot smoking sex !!

We see a good combination of everything within the story giving it a solid plot and well detailed delivery.

The writing is crisp, and fluent . No unexplained stories
 

I really enjoy MC stories, the men are so dam hot, even as foul mouthed as they are. I couldn' t help but laugh at the banter between Faye and the men. She was certainly a light into a dull environment.

Faye was a feisty , funny, sassy character with kick arse attitude and she certainly had the  men eating out of her hand . Her smart mouth and charismic  character brought life into the new family. 

Dex - he reminds me of a bull. Big, bulky and gruff. Protecting what is his at any costs. I enjoyed his sexy character, strong alpha male , dominant yet loving .

The chemistry between the pair was believable and well delivered . All aspects of the romance and love filled with depth and definition.

Overall, A fantastic start to this series and will be certainly be reading more !

Dragon's Flair was an easy book to devour filled with humour, smoking hot chemistry and lots of action with - kick ass flair and badass nakedness. :D

** Thank you to Simon & Schuster for supplying me with this book to review for my honest opinon. **

Book review - From Paradise to Pregnant - Kandy Shepherd ..

One night with consequences…

A week in Bali was accountant Zoe Summers's dream vacation. But when the tropical island paradise is hit by an earthquake, she's trapped—alongside Mitch Bailey, sports star and blast from her past! High on the thrill of survival, they seek comfort in each other's arms…

It was only supposed to be one night, but Zoe soon discovers an unexpected souvenir—she's pregnant! Now Zoe and Mitch will have to ask themselves…can one night lead to parenthood and a lifetime of love?



My review ..


Kandy Shepherd warms the heart of romance readers ,with her vivid descriptions and such wonderfully delivered sweet stories of love.

From Paradise to Pregnant is no exception.

Her stories always leave me feeling gooey and lovey dovey, sated and happy. I turn the last page, content and sheepishly grinning knowing that this book was another one to add to my list of favourites by this author.

I love the settings Kandy depicts her stories in , the wonderfully detailed surroundings she so flawlessly pens and the characters she puts forth on the pages.


The writing is flawless and richly detailed, and the characters well delivered with depth and definition. The romance is gradual , but rich in extent , but manages to so show emotion and moments between the characters that give us more then just words.


A character driven romance that will have you reading from front to back enjoying the characters, the storyline and everything in between.



Another delightful story from Kandy that fulfilled all my expectations.
