Shocked at Danial's betrayal, Sarelle returns to her old home to consider her options. Yet even as Sar plans a reconciliation with Danial, Terian arrives, confessing his desire. When Theo witnesses Terian and Sar kiss, he angrily confronts Sar, leading to startling consequences. Will Sar's heart choose Danial, Terian,…or Theo?

My Review:
Wanting to continue reading the wonderful Promise Me series with Broken Promise, I kept wondering what could Danial ever do to betray Sarelle? The starts off with this betrayal and I never would have guessed what it was.

Ms. Hall writes her characters with such a grasp of reality that they could be your neighbors. They are honest, emotional, deceptive, and flawed. I like that about them and can relate to the mistakes, passion, happiness and sadness they all feel.

Danial is just so gorgeous, he's also arrogant and a little selfish. When Sarelle decides she needs some time to think, I just want to shake her and say, "What the heck?" She has a man who adores and cherishes hers, why would she throw that away. As you can see I'm a lot partial to Danial. I didn't like how Sar behaved sometimes but I kept reading hoping to find a reason for the way she acted. Ms. Hall does a fantastic job throwing her characters into all sorts of difficult situations. I think she rather enjoys it!

Terian is hopeful that maybe there might be something between them now that Sar is no longer at Danial's. Now add in one furious were cougar, Theo to the mix and it makes for a rather interesting situation.

The action is a non stop wild roller coaster ride with a lot of unexpected turns and twists. Broken Promise has just a little darker edge to it than Promise Me. One particular scene between Devlin, Sar, and Danial. And I couldn't believe that what I was reading was going to happen. I was definitely shocked to the core so much so that I read and re-read it to make sure I wasn't missing anything. The book also has some lighter plot points as well, I like a little smart alec humor sometimes and Broken Promise has that too.

Overall I really enjoyed this book even though the characters had me wanting to scream at them at times, but I think that's why I liked it so much.

Murdina, a dark vampiric fey, hunts the Scottish Highlands for a man, but not for blood, Murdina wants love. She spots Cameron playing the bagpipes, and when a strong wind lifts his kilt, she takes a good look and decides he's the one. When Cameron meets a beautiful, mysterious woman who dances the Highland fling for him, his blood boils for her. Soon Murdina and Cameron are doing more than dancing. Wrapped in each other's arms, they discover true love, but their time together is limited before Murdina's fey sisters cross the portal to steal her back and probably kill him. Is their love strong enough to overcome the threat her sisters pose to Murdina's heart and to Cameron's life?

My Review:
Vampire Highland Fling is another quick sexy read when you don't have a lot of time. The story has a good plot and contains some Scottish mythology and it was fun to learn a little bit about it.

Murdina wants what her sister Sorcha found, love. She doesn't know what love feels like but she's willing to find out. Only able to underhill when the stones of the ancient cairn are disturbed, Murdina sneaks out without her sisters knowing.

After playing the bagpipes at a wedding, Cameron comes upon a beautiful woman who begins to dance as he plays for her. He's immediately enchanted by her graceful movements. Murdina is delighted that this man is so muscular and handsome. They are instantly attracted to each other and Murdina wants to stay with Cameron.
Murdina is determined and goes after what she wants, I liked that about her. Cameron is also very likable, immediately trying to think of a way he can support her. He was very unselfish in that respect. I wanted to see them be together so they could be happy.

I know Ms. Amiri doesn't have much influence on the art that goes on the cover, but this cover is somewhat misleading in that the story contains female and not male vampires. As a reader first and a reviewer second, it's really frustrating when the cover has nothing to do with the story. I still found Vampire Highland Fling a pleasant and enjoyable read.

One of Ian’s six brothers kicks over the stones of an ancient cairn, unknowingly freeing Sorcha and her six sisters from underhill. The seven handsome Scots are enchanted by the voluptuous temptresses until they turn on the men. Ian captures Sorcha, giving his brothers a chance to escape. With the dark fey woman still in his grasp, Ian is saved by the rising sun.

Her sisters vanish with the light of dawn and Sorcha is trapped in the mortal realm. The seductress can’t resist Ian’s attentions as he stirs throbbing urges she’s never felt before. Ian is bewitched by the wild delights offered by this vampire siren. He can’t get enough of her. Still, her wicked sisters and his highland brothers want nothing more than to attack and kill each other. Will Sorcha and Ian’s sizzling passion prove strong enough to overcome the differences between the dark fey and humans?

My Review:
Dance of the Vampires is an enjoyable short read with a unique spin on Vampires and Fey. The seven sisters are baobhan sith-dancing vampires. I really liked this concept. This is a modern story with strong ties to local legends. Since this is such a quick book, there isn't a lot of character development but there's enough to like the them.

Sorcha experiences emotions she's not used to when Ian traps her above ground. Ian is drawn to Sorcha and can't stop thinking about her. The chemistry between them is almost instant with a lot of sexual tension. The sex scenes are intense and sizzling hot. Dance of the Vampires is perfect for a steamy lunch time read.

I know there are other short stories in this series and I would like to see Ms. Amiri combine them into one or two novels and fill in a lot of the blanks to make an excellent series or books.

BMP Presents~ R.E. Butler's Every Sunset Forever Blog Tour & Giveaway

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look at my post on R.E. Butler's Every Sunset Forever Blog Tour & Giveaway presented by Book Monster Promotions.

Title: Every Sunset Forever 
Author: R.E. Butler
Series: Hyena Heat  Book Three
Release Date:  August 12, 2014

Raised by wolves, were-hyena Whisper Callahan has spent the better part of her life struggling to fit into a world where she’s the odd one out.  Her adopted family loves her, of that she has no doubt, but now they’re encouraging her to connect with her own kind.  At an annual gathering of unmated were-hyenas in Pennsylvania, Whisper finds herself torn between the past she never knew and the family who raised her as their own.

Were-hyenas Nyte, Azrael, and Fade don’t expect much to come from the gathering except a few days off from work at Stone’s Gym in Dalton, Kentucky.  They don’t expect to follow the sound of tears and find their mate crying in the woods.  And they certainly don’t expect to find themselves trying to protect her from her own family while she comes to terms with all that she learns about herself and her past.  But hyenas are nothing if not protective of their mates, and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to keep her safe.  And keep her forever.

It wouldn’t be a Hyena Heat novel without plenty of hot m/f/m/m loving, three males that would do anything for their mate, and a female that is in need of love.  Expect plenty of possessive behavior and excessive use of the word ‘mine’.

Sydney Nichols never believed she would know what freedom felt like until she found a way to escape her abusive mate.  But before she escaped, her mate did something to her, and she’s unable to hide the effects of his tampering when the group is stranded overnight during a storm.  When the truth comes out, will they forgive her and embrace their future, or will she lose the only good thing she’s ever had?

Contains m/f/m/m interaction.

After narrowly avoiding a personal disaster, she-wolf Alyssa Morgan can’t wait to leave her wolf pack and start her life over. Trying to rebuild her shattered self-esteem, she swears off relationships. When she accepts a job at Stone’s gym, working for three hunky were-hyena brothers, she discovers the hardest thing she ever had to do wasn’t leaving her pack, but keeping them at arm’s length.

Dante, Cairo, and Mason Stone have been unlucky in love. As were-hyenas, they need to share a mate, and they hadn’t found the right woman… until Alyssa walks through the door. But the sweet she-wolf is anything but interested in a relationship with them. Oppressed within her wolf pack, she doesn’t see herself as worthy of their affection. When her life is threatened and they almost lose her, they decide it’s time to convince her that she is their mate and they are perfect for each other.

This story contains one she-wolf trying to find herself, three overprotective were-hyenas with love on their minds, m/f/m/m interaction, neck biting, and symbolic tattoos.

Hi all! Addison Moore here! My new book BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY just released 8/12/14 and I thought it’d be fun to share some of the things that help me relax between penning my novels. So here it is, my all-time top 10 movies! These are the movies that I can cuddle on the couch with and watch over and over. There are plenty more that can keep me entertained (I’m easy, I swear) but these are my go-to flicks.  

The Wizard of Oz (What’s not to love? A lion, a witch, and a wardrobe! Oh wait wrong movie, but you get the picture ;)

The Princess Bride (LOVE!!!! And I love the music to Storybook Story. I constantly replay the version by Mark Knopfler. If you haven’t heard it, go look it up on Youtube! Go on, I’ll wait…..See? It’s awesome, right?)

Pitch Perfect (Hello?! It’s pure brilliance, except maybe for the vomit scenes. Those I could do without.)

Bride Wars (Who doesn’t love Kate Hudson AND Anne Hathaway? Win, win!)

Titanic (Seriously? I still cry.)

All Toy Story movies (Again, Toy Story 3? In tears.)

All of the Shrek movies, too! (I think I out laugh every kid in the room when this is on.)

Frozen (See? I’m a big baby!)

Safe Haven (There’s just something swoon worthy about it from start to finish. Josh Duhamel = serious yum.)

Groundhog’s Day (I can honestly quote almost every line from this movie. My husband and I have it DVRd and play it way more than it’s ever considered normal.) 

Two beautiful souls.
Two seemingly innocent deceptions.
Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and sort of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey.

Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford.
And Ford is all in with Stevie.
She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do.
She wonders if she wants him to.

They say love conquers all.
But love never met two liars like Stevie and Ford.

His lie cost her a few sleepless nights.
Her lie will cost him everything.

MFH Presents~Lucian Bane & Aden Lowe's Dom Wars-Final Round Book Blitz!

Welcome to For Whom The Books Toll. Today I'm hosting Lucian Bane and Aden Lowe's Dom Wars Book Blitz presented by My Family's Heart.

Title: Dom Wars
Authors: Lucian Bane & Aden Lowe
Series: Final Round-Dom Wars #6

When Gladiator Inc, an adult toy company expands their market to familiarize the ‘vanilla’ world with the elements of BDSM, the result is a pay-per-view reality show with video feeds streamed live to subscribers. The show, Dom Wars, is a competition to determine the Top Dom that will become the spokesperson for the company.
The contestants all wear cameras to film every moment and angle of the competition, while they complete various challenges to determine who has ultimately Dominated various elements of themselves.

The hero and heroine of the series, Lucian Bane and Tara Reese, have barely made it into the Sixth and Final Round of Dom Wars. This week-long Survival Round will determine the Top Dom, once and for all.

The contestants are taken to an uninhabited island, where they will have to cross formidable jungle terrain. First Dom to reach the boat anchored on the other side of the island wins the million dollars and the title.
Seems simple. Except Lucian’s old adversary, the Sadist Jase Duff from Round One, has been tasked with making sure none of the five teams make it to the boat.

If he is successful, he wins the prize, only it's not money that Jase Duff cares about, its revenge on Lucian and Tara. And his sadistic need to inflict pain makes it game on.

All they have to do is find the perfect pitch to sell Gladiator's dildos and ball clenchers to random vanilla businesses. Between Tara, Lucian and Steve, it's looking like an orgasmic circus of humiliation, bonding, and more self-discovery. But there's a catch. Their scores will buy their chances of survival in the next round. And Preacher Dom isn't about to let three cheating hooligans ruin his chances at the million.

I'm an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don't try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside-- her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn't afraid to look me in the eyes and say 'make me'. But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I'm a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we're lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don't want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unraveling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it's a huge risk. That's the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it's the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he's supposed to have. And he's prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I'd like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don't be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom's reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.
