Tour with Review and Giveaway ~ Stolen Princess by Nikki Jefford

Title: Stolen Princess
Author: Nikki Jefford
Series: Royal Conquest Saga #1
Publication date: November 11th 2018
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, New Adult, Retelling

Synopsis

She sacrificed herself to save her family from poverty…

The ball was only the beginning.

It wasn’t enough to kill my mate, heir to the throne. My obsessive Fae brother-in-law wants the crown. And he wants me ruling by his side.

I thought I was done with romance until a certain pompous elf reappeared in my life at the illustrious Monster Ball. A little teasing led to bruised lips and captured hearts. No one wants Jhaeros and me to be together, not even my favorite sister, Melarue. But she’s a teenager just coming into her elemental powers and discovering boys—the wrong kind—the type I want to shoot arrows through.

My royal in-laws are playing a treacherous game, and my brother-in-law is determined to get what he wants. But this elf princess no longer has a master. I don’t want a crown. I want freedom, family, and the love of a lifetime. But love might be the one thing that destroys us all.

**This book will now include the prequel novella Enemies and Lovers.

Review

This was a great book, but I was rooting for the wrong guy!! I dislike when that happens..but I am getting over that…very slowly!!

However, like I said, it was a great book and I really enjoyed it. The storyline and characters were built up nicely and I didn’t have any trouble at all immersing myself into that world!

Kudos Nikki Jefford!

Double Book Review ~ Unwanted & Unclaimed by May Dawson

Double Review

Okay so this is a review post for both Unwanted and Unclaimed because I completely DEVOURED them back to back and can’t wait to share my thoughts!! **Caution there will be cursing & a couple spoilers (I know I never have them, I couldn’t help it!!)

Synopsis

By the time I walk through the doors of the academy, where the born shifters of every pack are trained to fight and lead, I’m famous. Infamous? One of those.

I’ve already fought a battle or two. And my family’s complicated relationships with magic, which has been long forbidden to wolves, isn’t popular with all the packs.

I guess I should’ve said this is the place for born male shifters. There aren’t a lot of shifters like me, with flat irons and skinny jeans packed in their bags.

There’s quite the welcome committee waiting for me.

My cadre, who want to break me down and build me back up again into a fighter.

My bullies, who just want to break me.

My patrol, who rises or falls with me.

They don’t expect me to make it to graduation in four years.

But I know I will.

Who’ll be standing with me at the end?

Their Shifter Academy is a new reverse harem romance series, set in a military academy for shifters.

Review

GREAT beginning! I haven’t read anything by May Dawson but I am completely HOOKED! The story line, characters, writing style all captivated me and had me completely immersed the second I started reading. This is a great beginning for all the characters and it sets everything up nicely without too much added in an unnecessary fashion. Simply fantastic! I’m super intrigued by the guys and just who is going to be a part of Maddie’s Harem because I personally want them all to be a part of it, the more the merrier right. Even if there are a couple of men that have me thinking they could be “too” much of an Asshole. However, it’s the Assholes that need love the most right 😉

Synopsis

I’m going to war with the bullies that have tormented me at the academy. It’s time to make Jensen McCauley and his minions pay.

It’s all his fault. It’s all his plan.

Jensen wanted to be left alone so he could unravel the secrets surrounding his sister’s death.

I’ve got enough to figure out. I have to make sense of the on-again, off-again heat between Lex and me, my hopeless crush on Rafe, the sexy instructor who think I’m a human trainwreck, and the way I’ve ruined my friendship with Penn.

Plus, there’s the small matter of the demon stalking me…

But when Jensen McCauley needs my help…even though he doesn’t deserve me… I’ll help him find the truth about his sister.

It’s a truth some people are desperate to cover up.

Can Jensen and I not only work together…but survive?

Review

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! As soon as I finished Unwanted I started this one and I read it even quicker, which really upsets me because the next one won’t even be out until February!!! Talk about being pissed!!! I’m pretty sure I scared my kiddos when I hollered about that release date! ANYWAY, I can bitch about that later, on to what I thought of this book….HOLY HOTNESS!!! Unclaimed was filled to the brim with everything you could want in a book. Romance, Hate, Secrets, Action/Adventure, Mystery, Betrayal..I could go on…but I won’t! I have SOOO many questions and so much left unfulfilled!! Maddie and her men developed even more and parts of the story were taken care of, but more issues popped up that need to be handled.

FUCKING PERFECTION!! May Dawson I salute you and your beautiful, wonderful, amazingly creative mind and I am going to be waiting desperately for that next book, but I’ll be reading your other books in mean time!

***Going to do some squealing about some things, if you don’t want to read spoilers, please avoid**

So here are some things that just made me super freaking happy:

1. Jensen and Maddie finally bumping bunnies! YES YES YES!!! He might be one of my favorites, seriously though, awesome!

2. Can I PRETTY PLEASE have my wish granted when it comes to Rafe?? Let that man spank her!!!! SERIOUSLY NEED SOME RAFE ACTION IN MY BOOK READING!!!

3. That scene with Penn, Jensen and Maddie….FUCKING YES!

Tour with Excerpt and Giveaway ~ The Brutal Time by Christina Bauer

Title: The Brutal Time
Author: Christina Bauer
Series: Angelbound Origins #6
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: October 29th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis

“I love the Angelbound Origins world and just can’t seem to get enough of it!”The Avid Reader

As the Great Scala, Myla Lewis is the only being who can move Purgatory’s souls to Heaven or Hell. It’s a big job. Too bad Myla goes through assistants faster than a hot knife through brownies. Not that it bothers her much; Myla’s always been a solo fighter.

Then comes the problem of the fading angels. Millions of Heavenly residents are dying. According to a prophecy, the only way Myla can save them is by traveling back in time, meeting King Arthur, and creating her own knights of the round table. The catch? Doing so might end the after-realms in a bloody demonpocalypse.

Yipes.

Myla and her main squeeze, Lincoln, aren’t afraid of taking a few chances (in between kisses). But with so much at risk, the stakes may be too high, even for them. And the biggest challenge of all? Finding those knights.

Because Myla Lewis doesn’t play well with others. At all.

“These books don’t just capture your attention, they straight up demand it. Christina Bauer has created a fascinating and unique world that you do not want to miss out on.” – Bookhalolic Brittany

Excerpt – Time To Kick Some Old Lady Butt

Time to kick some old lady butt.

And no, I’m not kidding.

Right now, I pace inside a hallway of the Sunset Retirement Community for Quasi-Demonic Women. Like most of Purgatory, this place is all chipped walls and threadbare carpet. A sign at the corridor’s end reads:

Quilting Contest with the Great Scala
Activities Room, 10:30 AM

It’s true that I’m the Great Scala—meaning the only person who can move souls to Heaven or Hell with my igni power—but saying this event is hosted by the Sunset Retirement Community?

Not exactly.

Truth is, this building houses a powerful coven of quasi-demonic witches called the Bloody Knights of the Round Table. These ladies can see the future, which they think involves yours truly ending the world in a great demonpocalypse. So I volunteered to judge this contest … and will instead uncover the coven’s plans.

A lady tips her head out into the hall. “Are you the Great Scala?”

I want to reply, how many chicks have red hair, a dragonscale tail, and wear white Scala robes? But I need to keep a low profile. For the purposes of today, I am a bubbleheaded demi-demigoddess.

Blinking hard, I imagine my body’s filled with sunshine, moonbeams, and large air pockets. “Why, yes. I’m the Great Scala.”

For the record, I’m also the Queen of the Thrax, wife to Lincoln, mother to Maxon, daughter of Purgatory’s President, and recent winner of the annual Quasi Enquirer award for the sexiest demon alive.

But I digress.

“We’re ready for you.” This woman is on the shorter side with shiny brown eyes and a wrinkly smile. Her white hair wraps about her head, cotton-candy style.

“Perfect.” I flash her a grin that hopefully says, don’t worry about me. I’m totally not here to snoop.

Entering the activity room proper, I find a boxy chamber with cinderblock walls and—surprise, surprise—more frayed carpet. A dozen ladies sit at a circular table that’s covered with fabric, scissors, and spools of thread. Each woman holds a little quilt that’s about three feet square.

So far, so good. Then I notice a surprising lack of snacks. As in, there aren’t any at all. Good thing I sent my latest assistant, Alli-something, off for cookies already. With any luck, she’ll arrive with chocolaty stuff and soon.

“Thank you for coming here today, Great Scala.” The speaker is Rose, the same woman who greeted me before. Up close, I can see how she—and everyone else here—sports a great little invention called the name tag. It’s a life saver considering how 1) I’m terrible with names and 2) these women all kinda-sorta look alike. In related news, I’m also craving cotton candy.

Ready to roll.

Release Day with Excerpt and Giveaway ~ Corrupted Enchantment: When Fairy Tales Collide by C. Penticoff

Title: Corrupted Enchantment: When Fairy Tales Collide
Author: C. Penticoff
Publication date: October 8th 2019
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, Retelling, Young Adult

Synopsis

Fans of Once Upon A Time will be obsessed with this series!

WHEN FAIRY TALES COLLIDE

Welcome to Enchantia, where all your favorite fairy tale characters live happily ever after… That is, until a dark spell takes over the land.

Robin Hood: Everyone at school seemed to be scared of me. What? Had they never met someone who’d been in jail before? Whatever. I liked it that way. I didn’t need friends. I just needed to be left alone so I could get back to what I was supposed to be doing… Stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Something was getting in the way of my usual goal though. There seemed to be a spell looming about, and I knew exactly who was responsible for it– Presidential candidate, Rumpelstiltskin.

There was also the Peter Pan problem. Now that I was back, I could tell he wanted to approach me, but there was nothing he could have done to make me forgive him. He could bat his pretty little eyes all he wanted. The ultimate betrayal wasn’t something I took lightly.

Rumpelstiltskin: I didn’t care what the three fates said about that filthy little brat, Robin Hood, being my undoing. I would spill her blood to change that destiny. Now that I had the power of the Presidency in my palms, I wouldn’t let anything stop me from achieving what I set out to do.

EXCERPT:

Rumpelstiltskin…

In the darkest and dampest part of the Cave of Graves, I quivered as I awaited the Three Fates. I stroked the stony wall with the tips of my fingers as I walked through it. My undying desire to power over everyone around me had finally brought me to a desperate place for answers. I had everything I needed in its proper place to summon the Fates. There was just one final step before I looked destiny in the face——a prick of the finger. Without flinching, I pierced my pointer finger on the abandoned, ancient golden spindle of Olympus. Placing my oozing wound over the spinning wheel, my crimson blood trickled from my hand and onto the thread. The moment my fluid touched it, the entire line of thread soaked itself in blood, followed by a sound that sprung me off my feet.

WHOOSH!

A chilly gush of wind plummeted me backwards and onto the ground. Without time to react to the fall, a chilling sensation on my toes made me squirm. I looked down in time to see dozens of beetles crawling out of my boots and up my legs, biting and scratching their way up. I screeched and slapped myself on every part of my body, and the beetles suddenly vanished.

Before I could process what happened, my ears were filled with cackles somewhere up ahead. The noises were so loud, yet so close, I couldn’t tell if the voices were inside the cave or just inside my head. The cackles became louder and louder every second, and I screamed to try and muffle the shrieking sound. I covered my ears, but the cackles only grew larger, when suddenly…the cave fell silent. My shaking knees almost brought me to the ground as I carefully uncovered my ears.

Get it together, Rumpelstiltskin, I told myself.

Despite being a dark and sinister man myself, even this was enough to send chills down my spine. One woman’s cackle returned, but this time, I was certain the sound was in the cave, and not in my head. A candle lit in front of me, unveiling a dark, shadowy figure with cherry red eyes, matching the blood I spilled to summon them. The figure held her candle up to her mouth and gently blew. The flame grew in size, revealing her two sister Fates.

“You call us here to learn of your fate. Is that true?” the first Fate asked.

I was startled by her raspy and almost seductive voice.

“Y-yes,” I muttered.

The second Fate whipped around me and to the spindle, grabbed the thread, and was back in her spot in a matter of seconds. The wheel spun and spun faster than I had ever seen the wheel turn. Blood-soaked thread flew all throughout the cave, twisting and turning around me; and the third Fate reached a limb out to grab one part of the thread. The first Fate cut one part of it off and stretched it as far as it would go.

“Rumpelstiltskin.”

“Yes?”

“You’re destined to rule over all of Enchantia with unlimited power,” the second Fate spoke.

I couldn’t hold back the grimace that spread across my face.

“Endless support will pour from your people and into your throne.”

Laughter spilled from my belly and out of my mouth, and I could feel goosebumps dancing on my neck.

“But, don’t get too comfortable on your throne.” Those words alone ripped the laughter right out of me. “For a young Blue Elf will be your undoing.” The third fate flicked the thread and blood splashed onto my nose.

My fists balled up as I felt the blood rush to my head.

“Her strength will lie in her powerful magical abilities, and the power of fighting alongside her friends. Particularly, a young man will be her greatest ally,” the third Fate warned.

“Who is she?” I shook.

The Three Fates snickered.

“Who is she!” Spit flew out of my mouth.

“Her name … is Robin Hood.”

Your holiday season is about to get deliciously naughty!

The bad boys and girls of the Winterland are back for the conclusion of Alice and Scrooge’s story. This tale is mad, dark, twisted, sexy, and nothing like the legend you know.

Life for Alice Liddell should be normal. Work, family, and her general sucky life back at her parent’s house, working as a slutty-looking elf in Santa’s shop. But from the moment Alice wakes up from a terrible fevered dream, nothing feels ordinary.

With visions of strange creatures, an obsession with creating top hats until her hands bleed, and an inexplicable attraction to her married neighbor, Matt, she feels like she’s going crazy.

When her illusions of twin elves, singing penguins, and sexy reindeers start to turn into full blown hallucinations, her family feels they have no choice but to find her help.

Her therapist is Matt’s wife, Jessica Winters, someone Alice feels in her gut she shouldn’t trust. But he more Alice loses her touch on reality, the more her parents turn to Jessica.

In one night, Alice loses everything, landing her in an insane asylum where she learns Jessica is not at all who she seems. As Alice’s mind cracks further, her visions feel more like memories.

She’s in a fight for her life against the mad ruler of the institution. Except who will believe her? She’s the insane one, the one who gets visits by ghosts of holiday icons.

But one thing good about going mad? In some places being bonkers is exactly what you need…

To ascend from the madness.
