My Review:

4.5/5 Stars!

***I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review***

Damnation’s Door is the final book in the Cursed trilogy and what a crazy ride it has been.

Braun really seems to throw herself into her writing.  The first two books are a nice build to Damnation’s Door where the climax is reached and we get a very satisfying ending, in my opinion.

Con has been through a lot to protect her sister Dru.  She’s fought several bad guys and now has to face the Big Bad himself, Lucifer.  Con has lost a lot along the way, but nothing is more important to her than protecting her sister…well and the world, but hey, all in a day’s work and all that jazz.

I enjoy Braun’s writing.  It is fast-pacced but not frenetic.  She provides enough description to provide an almost immersive reading experience.  The characters are solid and all provide something to the story.  There are no wasted words.

What we get in Damnation’s Door is a great story that brings the trilogy to a perfect ending!

My Review:

I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

Dirty Deeds is a fast-paced, smart, entertaining ride that throws you a curve ball with each new chapter. Just when you think you know what is going on…boom, the direction changes and that is a GOOD thing.

Dirty Deeds can be categorized as romantic suspense with a side of paranormal.

Christy King writes smart and interesting characters…even the bad guys are kind of lovable. No one is who they seem. Dirty Deeds has a little bit of everything — mystery, danger, romance, all kinds of bad guys and one kick butt heroine. There is so much going on in this book, but not in an overwhelming way. King has woven all these perfect piecess together to create one creative puzzle with each chapter a new piece of the puzzle. When you finally get that last puzzle piece in place, it becomes this perfect AHA moment.

Release Blitz & Giveaway: Cloaked in Secrecy by T. F. Walsh

Cloaked in Secrecy
T.F. Walsh
(The Wulfkin Legacy #2)
Published by: Crimson Romance
Publication date: March 14th 2016
Genres: Adult, Paranormal

What better way for a pack of wulfkin shifters to remain in seclusion than to hide in plain sight?

Death has followed Alena Novac’s circus family for years, but when the police arrest her brother for murder, she must rescue him before he transforms behind prison walls. With less than a week to execute her plan, a member from the Varlac family who murdered her mother reappears. Now, Alena has to decide whether to make good on her promise to avenge her mother’s death or risk rescuing her brother.

Enre Ulf has one mission – prevent Alena’s father from claiming his territory and slaughtering his wulfkin pack in Transylvania. Enre may have turned his back on his Varlac heritage, but that doesn’t mean he won’t impersonate one to infiltrate the circus clan and take out their alpha. Knowing that his secrets will lead to his demise, Enre takes the risk in order to save his home. What he never planned on was his wolf claiming Alena as his mate.

Now with the police closing in, and the real Varlac threatening them, Alena and Enre must overcome their pasts to save their packs’ futures.

Cloaked in Secrecy is the book 2 in the Wulfkin Legacy series, but can be read a stand-alone-book.

CIS Stare Quote

EXCERPT:

ALENA

“Girl, you going to stand there all day?” Sonia’s voice turned loud as she snapped me back to the here and now.

She sat at the table, both hands clasped around at least a dozen twigs, each about half a foot long. Balancing the ends on the center of the table, she let the twigs fall and studied the way the pieces of wood collapsed on top of each other. The majority crisscrossed each other, others rolled away from the pile.

Sonia’s dark-blonde curls were pulled off her face with a headband. She wore no makeup or her usual fake gypsy jewelry reserved for the circus customers.

“Have a seat.” She spoke without taking her eyes from the pile of sticks in front of her, her head tilting from side to side.

Taking a chair at the table and kicking aside a boot, I reconsidered telling her about my dream with Enre. The more I replayed the vision in my mind, the more I was convinced it was me lusting over him. Heat radiated down my neck at the thought of telling Sonia that I’d turned into some horny nymph.

“What do you see?” No matter how many times Sonia read my future, my insides still fluttered.

“He’s at the circus for you.”

“The Varlac?” I slouched into the chair, arms folded across my chest, fire scaling my cheeks. “I doubt it.” Not the first time the twigs would have been misinterpreted.

“You’ll bring a change out in him. How exciting.” She flashed me a cheerful smile.

A thousand possibilities swirled in my head, but none of them made any sense, except the one where I hated being paired with Enre. “What does that even mean?”

Sonia inched closer. “The universe has a sick sense of humor. It shows us only snippets of events. You know that.” She twisted in her seat and retrieved a pack of tarot cards from the bookshelf behind her. The top card had a brightly colored parrot painted on it. She sighed, stashed it back on the shelf, and continued to fumble through her numerous other decks.

“That’s for the tourists.” She spoke with her attention still on the bookshelf. “Anyway, what about you? Had any dreams lately?”

I licked my lips, deciding not to share the memory of what Enre had intended to do to me in the dream. “Not much.”

“So you dreamt about him? The shake of your head says no, but your tone tells a different story.” She giggled, a piercing laugh, as she retrieved another pack of cards, the backs printed with a kaleidoscope of colors in a diamond patchwork design. “Weeks ago, I told you a visitor was coming.” Sonia settled in her seat to face me.
