Instinct

The Evolutioneers- Book Two

by Anna Alexander

Paranormal Romance

Blurb

Ripley Jorgensen had believed the biggest shock in his life was developing

shape-shifting powers, but that was nothing compared to learning that one

of his teammates, the woman he loved, was a complete fraud. Not only did

she steal someone’s identity, she may have committed murder.

Alisia had figured there was no better place to hide out than in a hidden

mountain fortress surrounded by superheroes. Surely no one from her past

would think to look for her there—that is, until her murderous father

hired the Evolutioneers to find his missing daughter and blew her cover.

Now she’s on the run with not only her former friends right on her tail,

but also the man who has her scent embedded in his soul.

Ripley doesn’t just want answers. The beast within has determined that

Alisia is its mate. Until he claims her as his own, the fight between man

and animal grows stronger every day. And if she should refuse him? The man

would be lost to the beast. Forever.

Excerpt

Really, what was the worst that could happen if she gave into the heat in Ripley’s eyes? More than likely they’d have a passionate affair that flamed out before it began. Okay. A manageable awkwardness if that came to be. At least she would be able put the thoughts to bed for good.

Of course, there was the possibility that the sins of her past would surface and she would be forced back out onto the street. Did she want more regrets than she already had by hanging on to her stubborn fears and not take a chance on him?

Her and Ripley. Together.

In the mirror her cheeks were flushed and her green eyes turned smoky as a colony of butterflies settled behind her ribs.

Holy hell, she was really going to pursue him.

Between her thighs she turned liquid, her body already preparing for Ripley’s possession. And he would possess her, of that she had no doubt. There was no half way with the man. That blasé devil-may-care attitude he projected to the world hid the animal inside him, the beast who would devour her whole. Take and take until she was drained. Heaven help her, that was just what she needed.

Her fingers shook as she dabbed on a touch of lip balm and smoothed down a wayward strand of hair. A smile flirted on her lips and she shivered, anticipating the intense union as she padded in her stocking feet down the hall on the hunt for her man.

☆COVER REVEAL☆DAMNED☆ALEXANDREA WEIS WITH LUCAS ASTOR

 

 

Title: Damned
Series: A Mangus Blackwell Novel: Book 1
Author: Alexandrea Weis with Lucas Astor
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release: October 3, 2017

 

 

 

Over a hundred years after the death of Magnus Blackwell, Altmover Manor sits abandoned. 

 


Lexie Arden and her fiancé, Will Bennet, are determined to rescue the neglected Mount Desert Island landmark. They want to make Altmover Manor their home. But Magnus has other plans.

A spirit bound to his former residence, Magnus finds himself inexplicably drawn to the young woman. She has a supernatural gift; a gift Magnus wants to exploit.

As Lexie and Will settle in, secrets from Magnus’s past begin to surface. Compelled to learn all she can about the former owner, Lexie becomes immersed in a world of voodoo, curses, and the whereabouts of a mysterious dragon cane. 

Magnus’s crimes won’t be so easily forgotten, and what Lexie unearths is going to change the future … for everyone. 

Bound to a spirit with a sinister history, a woman with a dark power will battle to rule the realm of the dead…

Lexie awoke with a start from a sound sleep. Gaping into the blackness of the strange bedroom, she discovered the storm had abated and she detected the creaks and groans of the old house. Then a crack from the floorboards made her flinch.
It came from Will’s side of the bed. She reached out to shake him, but he didn’t move.
“Will?”
She received a muffled grunt.
Another crack in the floor, but this time it happened right next to her side of the bed. An odor lingered in the air. 
Is that coffee? 
A column of light glittering to her left made Lexie’s mouth go dry. The oddity soon took on the shape of a man.
His strong frame, long arms, and tapered hands came into view. Good-looking, despite the cruel curl of his lips, his chiseled features, and engaging eyes, made her insides tingle. But when the cut of his old-fashioned red vest, long black coat, and white ascot tie took shape, Lexie understood this wasn’t some hazy fantasy. She didn’t fantasize about men from another century.
Lexie clutched her bedsheet as a fearful scream rose in her throat. 
“Please, my dear, don’t bore me with your petty shrieks,” the figure said, his tone condescending. 
Like a lightbulb getting enough electricity to reach its wattage, his image brightened, bringing out his details. Lexie scrutinized the buttons on his coat, the fine craftsmanship of his high black boots, and grasped the identity of her visitor.
Then a loud pop rang out, and he was gone. It happened so fast, Lexie questioned if it had happened at all.
“Welcome to Altmover Manor, Ms. Arden.” She recognized the voice of the apparition. “I hope you enjoy your stay.”
This time, Lexie did not hold back her scream, and as she opened her mouth …

Review & Excerpt Bliz~~Order of the Sicari Series By Monica Burns




Ancient Rome Collides with Present-Day and Only Love Can Save an Empire’s Collapse and Ensure Another’s Downfall! 
Assassin’s Honor 
(Order of the Sicari #1)
Only love can save a telekinetic assassin’s honor in a world where Ancient Rome never fell. Passion abounds in this award-winning series.
The Roman Empire never collapsed for Ares DeLuca and other Sicari. Ares comes from an ancient bloodline of telekinetic assassins who have lived in the shadows for two millennia. The Sicari are honor bound to kill only in the name of justice, but Ares broke the Order’s code and used his sword for revenge. Love cost him dearly once before, and he’s not willing to pay the price again. At least not until hot, sweet, delectable Emma enters his world. Not only does she have the ability to save an ancient empire’s collapse, she holds the key to a valuable Sicari relic and quite likely the key to his heart.
Archeologist Emma Zale sees the past when she touches ancient relics. It’s how she uncovered evidence of an ancient order of assassins—the Sicari. When a sinfully dark stranger shows up on her Chicago doorstep, he drags her into a world where ancient Rome still rules, and telekinesis and empaths are the norm. But someone wants her dead, and her only hope of survival is an assassin who’s every bit as dangerous to her body as he is to her heart.
Ancient Rome Collides with Present-Day Chicago and Only Love Can Save an Empire’s Collapse and Ensure Another’s Downfall
This award-winning series (reissued for the first time) starts off with a bang with an exciting combination of romance, suspense, sexy paranormal assassin heroes, and extraordinary world-building.
Available for purchase at
            

 

Assassin’s Heart 
(Order of the Sicari #2)
Can the truth of the soul Conquer the pain of its ancient past.
Unlike other Sicari, Lysander Condellaire has telepathic and telekinetic powers. Not until the night a Praetorian tortured him and left him for dead did he understand why. Now, the half-angelic, half-demonic face he sees in the mirror is a reminder of the monster he must keep hidden or face expulsion from the order of assassins known as the Sicari. But his dreams of ancient Rome hint at a destiny difficult to accept, especially when it involves the woman he loves, but can never have.
A gifted healer in the Order, Phaedra DeLuca witnessed her mother’s murder when she was a little girl. The haunting memory makes her loathe everything Praetorian. When she travels to Rome in search of an ancient artifact, she must work alongside a man who once cruelly rejected her love and healing touch. But her dreams of ancient Rome tell of an irreversible and possibly dangerous future. For the distant past and present are about to collide–with the one man she is destined to love.

Inferno’s Kiss 
(Order of the Sicari #3)
The Sicari brotherhood is back and this time they’re taking no prisoners when it comes to protecting the Order as warriors and lovers are torn between duty and desire.
Dante Condellaire, heir apparent to the Sicari Lords, knows that being a true leader means sacrifice. For Dante it was relinquishing all erotic pleasures. But he never expected his willpower to be tested so fiercely by Cleopatra Vorenus, expert assassin of the Order, and daughter of the man he is positioned to succeed.
Cleo prefers working alone—until she meets Dante who shares her goal: to destroy a Praetorian stronghold where Sicari women are imprisoned for devious purposes. Bringing the mission off without a hitch pumps up more than their resolve. It sets off a sexual spark too combustible to ignore.
As their attraction flares like an inferno, the stakes are raised. So are the risks. Before the mission is over, Dante and Cleo will be plunged into a dangerous conspiracy where a traitor threatens the very foundation of the Order, as well as the fiery bond between Dante and Cleo—warriors and lovers now torn between duty and desire.
“WOW! A kick-ass self-confident heroine and an alpha male with a side order of vulnerability practically guarantee a mind blowing reading experience.” — Fresh Fiction
“I loved that Cleo is the experienced lover while Dante is the virgin. Hallelujah and pass the cornbread. The sexual tension in here had me on edge, waiting to see if Dante would succumb or abstain.” — Smexy Books

MY THOUGHTS:
Assassin’s Honor by Monica Burns is a fantastic Paranormal Romance. #1 in “Order of the Sicari”, which is being  re-issued,  for the first time ever.
This is a story where two worlds collide, Ancient Rome and present day Chicago. Ares DeLuca, an telekinetic assassin and Archeologist Emma Zale, who sees the past when she touches ancient relics. This is how she found evidence of an ancient order of assassins—the Sicari. And thus the story begins……
“Assassin’s Honor” starts off fast and never let’s up until the very last page, and it lingers in your mind for some time after, what if….
The sensual tension is such that it keeps the reader on edge, waiting to see who sucumbs to whom.
Definitely fast paced, with wonderful mythical world building, mixing modern civilization with an ancient world of sexy assassins, a paranormal hero, and kick butt heroine with a cast of characters that only enhances the reading experience, rounds off this amazingly unique tale.  Mix in a combination of exciting romance, suspense, intrigue, passion, adventure and a deadly long standing ancient feud between Praetorian Guard and the legendary Sicari assassins, what the reader finds is an fantastic read. Whew, talk about excitement and adventure, “Assassin’s Honor” has it all and so much more.  Bravo, Monica Burns!! Well done! A definite must read for fans of paranormal romance, ancient feuds, mythical worlds, and sizzling romance. I look forward to reading “Assassin’s Heart”.

Excerpt:

MJ_Birthright-iBooks-lg“You and I have some unfinished business.”

She licked her lips, driving him crazy. That tongue was going to be all over him by the end of the night. Standing, she ran her hands down her pants like they’d gotten clammy.

He advanced on her. She backed up.

“Do you want this?”

“Yes.” The throaty quality in her voice drove his lust up another notch. “It just seems so sudden after everything we’ve been through.”

“No, Mage. It’s not sudden. It’s been excruciatingly drawn out since the moment I walked into that store.”

Q&A with author, Jillian David ~RELENTLESS FLAME~ JILLIAN DAVID

25217964
MBA&M: Please tell our readers a little about yourself? 
I double majored in English and premed because I wasn’t 100% certain which direction I’d go. Now, years later, I’m a family doctor who writes books! Since the beginning of forever, I’ve been a science fiction and fantasy geek. So, writing paranormal romance fits perfectly. Also kind of funny, people who know how happy I am in my “real life” are often horrified by the darkness/evil themes in my writing. Apparently, some hidden piece of my soul enjoys things that go bump in the night….
MBA&M: Please give our readers a bit of background about  the “Hell to Pay” Trilogy?Relentless Flame
Hell to Pay started out with a question of “What if I could tell which of my patients would survive and which would die?” Morbid, huh? I also wanted to heal folks just by touching them. Boom. First two heroine powers were born.
 
Then, at the same time, I started playing with the idea of making a deal with the devil. What would happen if it were literally true?
 
Mix in some romance, terror, brimstone, and adventure and that’s the Hell to Pay series.
MBA&M: Who was your most challenging character to write?
In my 3rd book, I have Ruth, a stoic, tormented Indebted with secret powers of her own. Writing her character was hard because she’s super-strong like the other Indebted, but has her own vulnerabilities. The challenge was hitting the right tone between tough and caring. Then, I had to create the >perfect< love interest for her who matched her strength and helped her grow. And of course, he had to be super sexy!
MBA&M: What or who was your inspiration in writing a Paranormal Romance?
I love asking “what if” for everything! Writing paranormal romance means the story is not tied to reality. Things can happen in paranormal romances that wouldn’t happen in a standard romance.
MBA&M: Three words to describe the “Hell to Pay” Trilogy? AND Three words to describe “Immortal Flame”? Immortal Flame
Hell to Pay: Earth-shattering, redemption, nonstop action (okay, that’s more than 3 words…)
 
Immortal Flame: tormented, sexy, death
MBA&M: What’s next for you and your career?
So glad you asked! Book #3 of my series, Flame Unleashed, will be released early this fall, so I want to make sure folks know about it! 
Beyond that, I’ve got another 4-book series outlined. The first book has been written already. It’s a suspense/light paranormal blend that relates to Ruth in Hell to Pay. In this series, we meet the Taggart family, a Wyoming family who have to release their hidden powers to protect their ranch…and those who they love.
MBA&M: What would you say is the most remarkable thing about writing a book/story?
If I get stuck with a plot roadblock or character issue, I’ve learned to go to sleep! As long as I don’t get called in to deliver a baby at 2am, my brain apparently stays active enough to work out the problems. In the morning, more often than not, I wake up with the solution! Oooh — maybe that’s >my< secret power!
MBA&: Do you have anything else you wish to add?
Sure do. Big thanks to My Book Addiction and More to featuring my books on your site! I so appreciate when folks take a chance on a newbie author.
Info for new release: Flame Unleashed. Will be out early fall by Crimson Romance.
(At the time of your post, I will not have the cover…yet…but soon. More information will be available on my website.)
 Thank you for stopping by today! We wish you the very best in your writing career!

She writes snarky, sexy, funny paranormal and snarky, sexy, funny contemporaries. Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke Zero Cherry with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals. A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where she can work in her underpants works really well for her.

Victoria Danann 
USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Victoria Danann, is making her debut into Contemporary Romance with releases in May and June 2015. Her Knights of Black Swan series won BEST PARANORMAL ROMANCE SERIES TWO YEARS IN A ROW (2013, 2014). Reviewers Choice Awards, The Paranormal Romance Guild.
Victoria’s paranormal romances come with uniquely fresh perspectives on “imaginary” creatures, characters, and themes. She adds a dash of scifi, a flourish of fantasy, enough humor to make you laugh out loud, and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. Her heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, past life therapists, or financial analysts from Dallas. Her heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners – usually – whether they be elves, demons, berserkers, werewolves, or vampires.
The first book of the Knights of Black Swan Paranormal Romance Series, My Familiar Stranger, was nominated for Best Paranormal Romance of 2012 by both Reviewers’ Choice and Readers’ Choice Awards. All of her books have opened on the Amazon Best Sellers list and earned Night Owl Reviews TOP PICK awards. Many have appeared on Listopia BOOK OF THE MONTH as #1 across all genres.
For books published in 2013, Black Swan won three awards. 1. Best Paranormal Romance Series 2. Best Paranormal Romance Novel – A SUMMONER’S TALE 3. Best Vampire~Shifter Novel – MOONLIGHT. In 2014, Solomon’s Sieve won Best Vampire Novel.
If you’re interested in Victoria personally, she is also a classically trained musician who defected to Classic Rock music. Until 2013 she was the utility player for Houston’s Roadhouse band, which means she played rhythm guitar, keyboards, sang backups and female leads. Her band covered everything (note for note) from Styx to Led Zepellin to Rush.
She lives in The Woodlands, Texas with her husband and a very smart, mostly black German Shepherd dog.

Claudy Conn

However, my daughter lectured me and said that I should write about myself like I write my stories—so here goes…

While I have a fanciful imagination, I am a Capricorn—‘sure and steady’, and the obvious conflict leaves me jumbled. I have a computer, yes (invaluable), but I still jot down ideas on a scrap piece of paper, or a napkin in a restaurant. My imagination follows me wherever we go and sees so much more than meets the eye, and very often my husband will ask, ‘where are you now, baby?’

My dad was the one who clicked into my brain early on, and opened my mind to a world where a girl/woman could be so much more than ‘pretty in pink’. He told me to soar, and soaring for me, was writing.

We love horses and riding and when we migrated from New York to North Carolina we brought our barn with us—and yes, I’d rather muck out a stall than clean a house! My Irish, blue-eyed husband had to have a wolf and so we brought in our little hybrid wolf pup to our home. She is ¾ wolf/ ¼ German shepherd named Cherokee. Her 3 yr. old son (Rocky) is huge and eats everything and anything he can find and weighs more than 170 pounds!

Ireland and Scotland gave us the Fae and the Druids. In Ireland you can still visit the ‘Faery Mounds’. Think of the possibilities. I have and I’d love for you to join me as I explore them. So then, come with me and let’s see where we can go…

Julia Mills 

I am a sarcastic, southern woman that would rather spend all day laughing than a minute crying. I have 2 of the most amazing daughters ever created, a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading. I decided to write the stories running through my brain and am having an absolute blast!! I read my first book, Dr Suess’ Cat in The Hat, by myself at 4 and have been hooked ever since.

I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down. I know for a fact that all heroes inf all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my hero, my dad! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.

I am still working on my story but can guarantee you that it will contain as love and laughter as I can cram into it!!!!! Dare to Dream! Have the Strength to Try EVERYTHING! Never Look Back!

Cynthia St. Aubin 

I like gravy.

This has nothing to do with the rest of my bio, but I thought you ought to know.

About the writing thing…

I wrote my first play when I was six and made my brothers perform it for my parents. I charged gum wrappers for admission (a steal, in my opinion, considering I had handed out the gum wrappers ahead of time). While I seriously doubt you’ll be seeing any of my formative work on Broadway anytime soon, I can credit these early experiments with the first of many important lessons I learned about writing: no matter how brilliant your manuscript is, some kid can go streaking butt-ass nekkid across the living room, and totally undermine your vision.

Everyone watches the naked kid because running across the living room with your cheeks flapping in the breeze is friggin’ hilarious.

Cue the lightbulb moment. People like funny stuff!

I never quite gave up on the writing thing, even as I tried my hand at being a dusty academic turned Executive Assistant (they paid me to nag! How cool is that?), but in those quiet moments when expense reports had been filed and to-do items checked off, the funny people in my head kept talking to me.

Yes, I know they have medication for that. It’s called vodka.

Since they discourage drinking at work, I started writing instead. What came out was an amalgamation (vocabulary!) of all the things I love: funny stuff, art, psychology, food, people, and paranormal critters!

Et voila! The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist were born.

When I’m not sitting in my office watching cat videos and pretending to write, I like cooking, knitting (badly), and reading anything that makes me laugh (like my bank statements).

I live in Colorado with my brilliant husband and three surly cats.

To Love a King (Court of Annwyn, #3)

About the book:

To keep the balance between good and evil at the Court of Annwyn, Prince Felan ap Gwyn has two weeks to marry and take the crown. But he wants more than just power—he wants love; a love he once had but was too foolish to hold on to.

 

It took years for Jacqueline Ara to put her life back together after Felan abandoned her. She’s moved on, even if her heart still burns for him. But with war in Annwyn looming and death creeping into the mortal world, Felan and Jacqui will need to heal old wounds and rekindle the passion that once welled between them…or face losing everything.

 

Praise for Lord of the Hunt:

 EXCERPT for TO LOVE A KING…

I always have a few favorite scenes when I’m writing a book. They aren’t always the big action scenes, or the even the first kiss. Sometimes they are the unplanned moments between characters that just happened. This excerpt is one of those little moments that shows so much about Jacquie and Felan. He’s always thinking of the big picture, the cause and what is best for everyone, but Jacquie reminds him that if he’s not around then none of that matters. Even though he is the Prince of Annwyn, he is still a person and is important in his own right.
In that respect Jacquie balances Felan, and in turn he reminds her that she is more than just a coffee shop waitress. She is his love and the future Queen of Annwyn. In his eyes she isn’t just a replaceable mortal woman and she never has been.
I think at some point everyone has experienced that moment of being swept up in the drama and forgotten to stop and think of the smaller things. If we take care of the little things, the big things will fall into place. While we may not all be fighting for our lives and Annwyn it’s something to remember.

***
Jacqui was awake when he walked back into the bedroom. “I thought you’d left already.”
“I wouldn’t go without a kiss for luck.” Or farewell. He knew the thought shouldn’t even be in his mind, but only a fool failed to look at all possible outcomes. He’d set the dice in motion, now he was waiting for them to land—hopefully in his favor.
Her lips curved, but it was forced. He knew exactly how she felt.
He picked up his clothing and started dressing. Plain, dark purple clothes—the winter purple that was almost black—the padded shirt, and then the silver chainmail. He didn’t bother with a cloak that could tangle around him. However, he put on two knives, one on his waist and one in his boot, plus his sword.
“What is Annwyn like in summer?”
Felan stopped and turned. “Like the most perfect day.” If he closed his eyes, he knew he could summon up the memory, even if he couldn’t feel the sun and heat on his skin. “Remember when we went hiking and had the picnic, how the place had felt deserted and yet full of life?” Birds and chipmunks and butterflies had been all around them even though the track had been less than twenty yards away, and yet it had felt as though they were the only people. It hadn’t been too hot or cold but sunny and with a light breeze. It was as close to perfect as he could ever remember experiencing in the mortal world. That had been the day he’d told Jacqui what he was. They’d spent hours talking about what that had meant, and he’d seen the wariness in her eyes fade to acceptance and understanding. He hoped she’d have that same chance here. “It’s a lot like that. Magical and yet ordinary. And it will last until we cease to rule.”
She frowned as if remembering, then nodded slowly. “And spring?”
“Spring will allow the leaves to grow, for flowers to bud, and the grass to return…but it won’t reach its full lushness and summer until our child is born. I am okay with that. There is no need to just live in summer. Perhaps a long spring is what the Court needs to remember not to take summer for granted.” They needed the long spring to adjust to their new roles and reformed relationship. He drew her into an embrace. “We can do this.”
“I know. I just…I just need to know what I am hoping for. What you are fighting for.”
“I’m fighting for everyone—you, the baby, me, Annwyn, and all of the mortal world.”
Jacqui drew back. “Just fight to live, Felan. Let the rest fall into place.”

To Love a King (Court of Annwyn, #3)He’s Trying to Reclaim His Past
To keep the balance between good and evil at the court of Annwyn, Prince Felan ap Gwyn has two weeks to marry and take the crown. But he wants more than just power—he wants love; a love he once had but was too stubborn to hold on to.

She’s Struggling to Face the Future
It took years for Jacqueline Ara to put her life back together after Felan abandoned her. She’s moved on, even if her heart still burns for him. But with war in Annwyn looming and death bleeding into the mortal world, Felan and Jacquie will need to heal old wounds and rekindle the passion that once welled between them…or face losing everything.

He was her enemy and her lover…

As Cedric fights battles down south, Rowena unwittingly rides into an enemy war camp and is taken prisoner by her old friend Lars, who is not what he seems.

Yet Rowena is not helpless. After all, she is a hereditary half-witch with a whole lot of magic in her.  Too bad she doesn’t know how to use it. Escaping from the camp, she continues to botch up spell after spell. Soon Kendra joins her on the trek back to Huel, along with the latest magical mistake, a flame-burping dragon called Cinders.

When war comes to Land’s End, it brings the one man who threatens to conquer everything in Huel, including Rowena’s heart. Now she has to make the biggest decision of her life. Will she return through the wall to safety in Arizona? Or will she stay in Land’s End for good, and fight to save her people from the Viking Warlord?

About the author…

Billed as Canada’s “Queen of Comedy” by the Toronto Sun (Jan. 5, 2014), Melodie Campbell achieved a personal best when Library Digest compared her to Janet Evanovich.

Winner of nine awards, including the 2014 Derringer (US) and the 2014 Arthur Ellis (Canada) for The Goddaughter’s Revenge (Orca Books), Melodie has over 200 publications, including 100 comedy credits, 40 short stories, and seven novels.

Melodie got her start writing stand-up.  In 1999, she opened the Canadian Humour Conference. Her fiction has been described by industry reviewers as “hilarious” and “laugh-out-loud funny.”

Melodie has a commerce degree from Queen’s University, but it didn’t take well.  She has been a bank manager, college instructor, marketing director, comedy writer and possibly the worst runway model ever.  These days, Melodie is the Executive Director of Crime Writers of Canada.

Her latest book is the paranormal romance time travel, Rowena and the Viking Warlord.

MY THOUGHTS:

Rowena and the Viking Warlord by Melodie Campbell is an interesting Paranormal Romance Time Travel. Book 3 in the Land’s End series. See, “Rowena Through the Wall” and “Rowena and the Dark Lord”. While, I would suggest reading the other two in this Trilogy, it can be read as a stand alone.

In this one Rowena, is more mature, as is the other characters, Lars, Cedric, Kendra, Gareth and Thane. Rowena  finds herself in more trouble. In this one we have more twists and turns, more funny bits, the sexy parts are sexier than in the previous stories, with serious bits too.  It is a well written tale of time travel, romance, and adventure with great character and world building. A sexy, funny romp through time! An enjoyable read! Received for an honest review.
