Bring on the Psychobitch (Some Girls Do It #3) ~ May Sage

                                                    the psychobitch

In my life, or shall I say it better “my book reading,” there are only a few things that will pull me right off to a book. The cover, if displayed to show the cover or if I am looking at it online. The author, because even I have my fav’s. An interesting or funny title, because it takes a little brilliance to choose it and hold on to it … or live with it. Winking smile

Bring on the Psychobitch (different link than that of book cover) … you know that had to take some convincing to be kept. But I saw the title, the cover is not what pulled me in, but the description. I had to read a book where the main character called herself that with PRIDE. Hey, we all have those points where we blow it off name calling but very few of us stand up & take those names with the pride this author created in  her main character. (Guessing that she has been there & prob does that!)

Ms. Sage not only give you present but the past as well to create a character that you will either love or despise. Me, I rather like this character but then I like strong-will individuals. Sure anyone can try to create that, but if you fail … you fail miserable with a character that most bookaholics want to throttle. But if you succeed, like Ms. Safe did here, then you end up with a story that makes the reader want more. Keep them reading what you do write, and coming back for more.

Seduced in September (A Year W/Out a Duke #3) ~ Genevieve Turner

Seduced in Sept

Every so often I find historical romances. The title interests me, or in this case the series, and I start reading. I must say that I am pretty impressed that they were able to put together this series with a variety of authors.

Meet Adele Vere, who is the perfect English governess. Or at least that is the front that was raised to show. Well, that is after the death of her mother. She was taken in by a couple, that raised her to be better than what she would have had otherwise (in this time).
Edward Coyne is the stable master. Who, it would seem, is set out to break through the mask Ms. Vere is hiding behind. He thinks that there is more to her than the “proper English governess.”
There is a fire that almost destroys any chance of Mr. Coyne from finding out what is behind that mask. Will they be able to over come this incident? Will Ms. Vere be able to forgive Mr. Coyne’s actions? Much less her own?
There are a lot things that can be told, but if they are … well, I should just tell the entire story. I don’t providing spoilers, they ruin the read.
Ms. Turner has created a tale of two people who have so much to deal with in life. Where they will be in months to come, as well as parts of their pasts. She creates an interesting tale involving some of the staff currently at the Beckworth estate.

As for the series … yes, I had to read them all. “Bloody Hell” how was I to find out what happened to all the extra characters in the book. (Just keep reading the letters from the head housekeeper & lawyer … they are interesting & would have made a GREAT story to go with this series!)

Creatus (Creatus #1) ~ Carmen DeSousa

Creatus

Personally, I would not be sure exactly how I would react if I found out that I was being “watched for my own safety” for the majority of my life.

stalker eyes

In this story, you have a young woman, Kris, who was saved by her “dark angel” but her mother (or the only mother she knew) was violent murdered. This young child refuses to believe that she made up the man who saved her, and she holds on to that for years. Being rescued by him more than she actually knows, but only remember a few times.
Letting the harshness of her life pile down on her, Kris becomes an alcoholic. Using it as an escape from her life … pretty much every single night.
watcher attire
On the anniversary of her mother’s death, Kris wakes to find herself in an apartment with some man she decided to smoke pot with. Even though the 1st time she did, she had a horrid reaction … guess alcohol can cause your brain to shut down. When she stumbles into the alley, the same one her mother died in, Kris completely looses it. She wants to know why she was saved … because from her view point, there was not reason. During this ranting and raving, Kris decides to prove to herself once & for all that her “dark angel” is not something she made up.

Derrick is the “dark angel.” But he has to abide by the laws of his kind. They are to stay invisible to the world. Not be the heroes they once where because now with the technology mankind has, it would be far to easy for the government to locate them & well, who really knows from there.

There is a lot of cleaning up & fixing each other in this tale. Ridding Kris of the need for alcohol. Having her accepted into the family. Hunting down the rogue Creatus, who savagely kills humans to prove they are beneath Creatus.

Yes, the characters could have used some extra building. But they were not that bad. You are mainly following Derrick and his path to become the individual he needs to be to save his family from the destruction of the Rogue Creatus. But you cannot have a hero without a damsel in distress … this tale would have fallen flat on it’s face otherwise.
Ms. DeSousa creates a unique world where the heroes of the past are still with us. She gives you a young Creatus who must decide for himself what is important and what is not, plus how much he will risk for it. She provides humans to spice up the story, even if we do not agree with how they were in the beginning … we watch as they learn to change as well.

The Order Box Set ~ Nina Croft

The order

Bittersweet Blood ~ What would you do if you found out that your ENTIRE life was nothing more than a lie? That the world you lived in wasn’t exactly what you thought it was? Welcome to Tara Collins life. Ever since her aunt “died” Tara has come to find out that nothing she thought she knew is the truth & she wants to learn why.
Enter in Christian Roth who runs a PI firm. When this ‘man’ starts looking for the answers, it’s not something that Tara is willing to believe or want to believe.

But willing or wanting doesn’t matter because Christian’s past collides with Tara’s future. Will she be able to make out of this alive? Can Christian stop a demon who wants nothing more than to destroy everything Christian loves?

Bittersweet Magic ~ To avoid being burned at the stake (about 500 yrs. ago) Rosamund Fairfax (Roz) prayed to God but when he didn’t answer, she prayed to a demon (and she got Asmodai) … and made a deal that is almost paid off. Until a psychotic Vamp takes off with the Key. (Lucky for us, there are no individuals who turn this “key” into a human child!) Then he leaves the only Nun marked  but with a message for Piers Lamont.
That simple mission to end the tie to a demon just got quite complicated. Piers is currently the Vamp in charge of the Order … one that Asmodai (Ash in the human world) has told her would destroy her & other “abominations.” After all, why would a DEMON lie?

Piers finds out that the demon queen (and the psychotic vamp) that he imprisoned over 2000 yrs. ago is  free. She wants the key & him back into her life. Only problem is that Piers would prefer to have NOTHING to do with the creature to stole away his chance of being reincarnated.

Bittersweet Darkness ~ To create an amulet (to protect his daughter) Asmodai (Ash Delacourt) becomes indebted to Lucifer. To pay off this debt & have the seal removed, he must begin working with the Order of Shadow Accords. (Yes, there a many questions that come behind WHY Lucifer would want this, but sadly none o them are answered in this story. Fingers crossed as to possible a book simply for that?)
Detective Faith Connolly finds herself wrapped up in a conflict between two organizations … one that has began investigating her former partners new employer & will discover the answer they believe at any cost & the Order. The slime oozing off her NEW boss is just too much for her to tolerate. Plus it is discovered that this organization might be responsible for her mother’s death & the reason she simply cannot/will not believe in anything paranormal.

Can the Order begin preparing Earth for the knowledge that Demons, Angels, Fae, & other paranormal creatures exist? Or will this other organization destroy them before they can get a foot in the door?

Bittersweet Freedom ~ Best way to track down a shifter? Send a werewolf after her!
Poor Carl must hunt down the cat shifter who stole demon gold from Asmodai. Pity that Shera would rather DIE than keep living bound to Asmodai.
Asmodai has turned to Shera’s demon father to take her in because he believes there is an “issue” between Faith & Shera. Shera decides to run instead before she is able to learn Asmodai’s plan.
What Shera does not know is that she is 1/2 demon. Which is why all the changes occurring with her are freighting. Carl knows, but he is under direct orders NOT to tell Shera. But Carl does not know the full extent of Asmodai’s plan either, so he joins Shera on her run. Hoping to convince her that she must return to the demon dimension before the bound destroys her.

 

Ms. Croft has created one hades of a world. Where there are different dimensions for demons, fae & even one for angels. She creates an Order that keeps peace on the Earth, putting a stop to Demon & Fae wars … this Order is run by Vampires. (And from the description of them, SMOKING Vamps out to save the world.)
