Lady is Daring by Megan Frampton

The duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind?
It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister’s whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she’s not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave.
Lord Carson’s plans had always been to find a soft, gentle wife who would run his home and raise his children. Still, he makes a bargain with Ida—he won’t desert her during her mad adventure. He’ll make sure she’s safe, and then find a suitable lady to fall in love with. But when rules (and garments) become discarded during this long, intimate journey, it’s soon clear that this surprisingly daring lady is the woman he’s needed all along.

Unchained (Blood Bond Vol 1) by Helen Hardt

Review:

Unchained (Blood Bond Saga Vol 1)   Also Available Now – Blood Bond Saga 4 & 5  by #1 New York Times Bestselling author Helen Hardt Release Date: 2nd October Genre: Paranormal Romance

 
Unchained (Blood Bond Vol 1)

Part one: Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger. ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding. Part two: Dante Gabriel is angry. Someone has violated the woman whose scent has left him emotionally paralyzed, and he’s become unhinged. He vows to protect Erin Hamilton—mostly from himself. Erin has other ideas. She’s determined to figure out the strange man who keeps leaving her aroused and unsatisfied. When she pushes Dante for answers, he goes looking for them himself. What he uncovers could put Erin in mortal danger, with him as her only salvation. Part three: Now that Dante Gabriel recognizes the blood bond Erin Hamilton has formed with him, he has unwound a little. Still, he must find a way to convince her that she must complete the bond for both their sakes. Vampires are rapidly dying out, and humans have long considered them nothing more than a myth. How can he make her understand? Erin has fallen in love with Dante, but she’s still confused and angered by his behavior. To keep her mind occupied, she immerses herself in a mystery that has evolved at work. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin begins to wonder if one of the ER doctors might be involved. Part four:Vampires are real. That fact has Erin Hamilton thinking she’s headed for crazy town. Still, she can’t deny the intense emotion she experiences when Dante Gabriel sinks his teeth into her neck to take her blood. She’s in love, and her body responds to his bite in a way she never could have imagined. Once Dante tastes Erin’s blood, he’s addicted forever and cannot live without it. He’s heartbroken when she demands that he leave and never return. But neither can live without the other now, which puts them both at risk. Part Five:Once bonded, never broken. The words give Dante Gabriel hope…until he remembers where he first heard them. The information he needs is hidden in the ancient Vampyre Texts, but he encounters obstacle after obstacle while trying to decipher them, even when someone from his past returns to help. Though she tries, Erin Hamilton can’t resist Dante. When he comes for her, she always submits willingly, despite her best intentions. She loves him but still can’t bring herself to accept him as vampire…even as other vampires, lured by her arousing scent, begin to close in on her.

My Review
5 Stars
  Unchained by Helen Hardt is Vol 1 (1-3 books) in the Blood Bond Saga.
Starts the story of Dante Gabriel and Erin Hamilton. This starts a 6 part story line for this Blood Bond Saga. They are quick reads but ones you just want to grab the next one so fast. This book starts with Dante being free from being held for several years and him needing blood. It leads him to meeting Erin who they have a instant connection…where he only wants to protect Erin even if that is from himself. Erin is a independent strong women but somehow she feelings drawn to Dante enough to do things she would normally not do.
I have always enjoyed a good Vampire romance story but now with Ms. Hardt writing it brings more joy and excitement to my reading. This is such a great start to a awesome series…I am hooked!

My Review
5 Stars
SOME NIGHTS by J.L. Lora is the story of Saona and Jax.
Saona is dealing with the hurt of a cheating husband but she takes action to seal the deal by getting a divorce from him and working to try to move on.  When she meets Jax a bartender they set out to have a hot encounter but it seems to flow into something more when they start texting and meeting up again. Jax is a hard-worker who works two jobs to fix up a house along with taken care of his family.  These two are somewhat of a opposite spectrum which sometimes leads to doubts but their chemistry is off the charts.
Really enjoyed their story~

We were never supposed to fall in love.

It should have only been about connections, convenience, strength, power.
But it turned into so much more, and now we risk losing it all.
 
However, if they think we’re going to lie down and take it, they have another thing coming.
 
We are Calvetti’s—The royalty of New York City.
I refuse to lose her.
Just like she refuses to lose me.
 
If they think they can defeat us, then it’s time to make them all bleed.
 
Because we’re dangerous. Calculated. Bloodthirsty.
The perfect motherfucking trifecta of crazy.
And they did the one thing you don’t do to merciless people like us …
 
They lied, and now it’s time to make them pay for their sins.

My Review
5 Stars
Blood & Secrets 5 by Rose Harper is book 5 in The Calvetti Crime Family series.  This continues the story of the story of Carina and Mateo. I do feel strongly that you need to read the previous books ‘Blood and Secrets 1’, ‘Blood and Secrets 2’ and ‘Blood and Secrets 3’ , ‘Blood and Secrets 4’ first to fully enjoy this book (and series).
This is the last book in the series and ties up the story line for Carina and Mateo.  This isn’t a tame book and keeps with the dark theme of their relationship.  I cannot say enough about how this series has placed you on the edge wanting to know what would happen next, reading how they survive through their obstacles to get to where they wanted to be. 
Really enjoyed this page turner series and would recommend this to Dark Romance readers.

Title: Teased by Fire
Author: Molly O’Hare
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 2, 2018
 
 
 

Blurb

Olive has always been content living an anti-social existence while letting the characters she writes about fulfill her wild side. She’s worked hard to achieve a zero human interaction life. However, that came to an end when out of nowhere her best friend announced she’s moving out, and her brother was moving in. Not only does Olive now have to deal with the guy that has teased her their whole life, but he also came with a cat the size of a human child.
 
Hank’s had a thing for Olive for as long as he could remember. When he realized she needed a roommate, he jumped at the chance. Why wouldn’t he when annoying Olive had always been his favorite pastime? Then one day when Hank let his curiosity get the better of him, he discovered Olive had a whole other side of her she kept hidden away. 
 
Now, all Hank had to do was convince Olive life was a heck of a lot more fun when you add some fire to it. Honestly, what could possibly go wrong?

Author Bio
 
Much like any author out there, sleeping does not come easy to Molly. As it turns out, she has horrible insomnia. When she was younger, to help herself fall asleep she would recite stories. Each night she’d pick up where the story left off previously until the tale was complete. One morning, after she finished a particularly fun adventure, she decided she wanted to start sharing them with others. A few months later, here she is, sharing her lack of sleep with all of you. Who says the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?
 

Also, she loves Fun Facts. New ones are at the end of each of her book. If you look close enough, some are hidden on her website too.
