Coco and Grayson use to know each other during the war, then many years later they bump into each other on Mystic Isle. AND that is when things get VERY steamy, sexy, hot and yummy! hehehe! I loved this story and I can't wait to read more! FYI! I loved the God in this book! He is just such a cutie!
Hey Book Lovers! So how is everyone liking 12 Days of Bookmas so far? I know I'm really enjoying it! :D So for Task 4, which is pretty simple, I want you to comment below or email me with your answer.
In my family we have some traditions and they are: 1. We all go down to Gran's for boxing day to have a second x-mas. 2. We all eat food from Floors Castle. (It's the food my mum brings down to Gran's) 3. Everyone, apart from me, mum and my wee bro, talk about politics. businesses and other stuff we find that we don't care about. The question is.....Do you have any family traditions at Christmas time?
Another vampire book for you to sink your fangs into this Christmas!
VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS BY FELICITY HEATON It was one last mission. Shannon, a demon hunter with the agency, is
looking forward to leaving behind the small town and the vampire she's
been stuck with for the past two years. Things are getting complicated
fast and she wants out. A fresh start, free of her vampire partner,
awaits her if she can survive their final mission and the lonely
It was one last mission. Rafe, a vampire
doing time with the agency, watches it approach with dread weighing
heavily in his stomach. Two years of working with Shannon has been
difficult, especially since he started falling for her, but he doesn't
want their partnership to end. He has barely a few days to make her face
her feelings and stop her from leaving, and he intends to do just that.
a slimy demon threatens the season of peace and goodwill, it's the
chance Rafe has been waiting for and the moment Shannon secretly fears.
Rafe's determination to prise open her heart and her own resolve to keep
it closed clash as violently as they do with the demon, and threatens
to end as messily.
Can Rafe make Shannon see that his love for
her is real and that she feels something for him too? Can Shannon face
her fears and her past, and stop herself from running away from both?
Will a wish on a star bring her what her heart truly desires--a vampire
Vampire for Christmas is a great book, you will laugh and you will cry
at times through-out the book. Shannon who has kept her heart closed off
for so long has finally opened it up to Rafe, and it just so happens
that they are partners in a demon hunter agency. They have been partners
for the last two years and Shannon is looking forward to leaving the
agency and Rafe behind, but Rafe is not looking forward to Shannon
leaving, he has fallen for her and he doesn't want her to leave. I love the way that this book is set up from beginning to
end, the way that Felicity describes her characters and how she
describes their feelings. It is a great book especially for this time of
year. I loved it and I know you will too.

THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS BY LYNSAY SANDS AND JEANIENE FROST This holiday season, join two of today’s most popular paranormal
authors for a special look into their worlds, where creatures are always
stirring and no one sleeps through the night. . . . The Bite Before Christmas The Gift by Lynsay Sands
Brunswick knows about the immortals among us. He’s worked with them,
called them friend—but he never counted on being snowed in with one over
Christmas. Katricia Argeneau is a tasty little bundle and she seems to
feel the same way about him. Problem is, he’s not sure she feels quite
the same way. After all, the snowstorm has derailed her blood delivery,
which leaves him the only available meal on the menu. . . . Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost Cat
and Bones are looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as “normal”
as it gets for the combustible vampire couple and their otherworldly
friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a
stranger shows up and reveals long-buried family secrets that threaten
to take a bite out of their holiday cheer . . . and lives.
There's nothing like a Christmas themed book to put me in the holiday
spirit and this anthology is no exception.
The Gift by Lynsay Sands
Katricia is ancient and has spent so many years alone that she no longer
craves food or sex but all of that changes when she meets Teddy. At
first she's reluctant to inform him of the fact that they're mates for
fear of him running for the hills. It's a
Christmas story though, so as expected, everyone lives happily ever
Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost
Bones are spectacular together and I breathed in the pages faster than I
would have liked.
the Holidays is a quick and spicy read that'll put you in the mood for
more things than just Christmas (if you get my meaning!).
stories in The Bite Before Christmas are festive while managing to
maintain their paranormal cores. A great read for those looking to read
something holiday-themed without having to go overboard on the Xmas

Santa's Executive by Carrie Ann Ryan!
Justin Cooper wasn’t always the straight-laced Holiday Elementary
School principal. In his youth, he broke all the rules and enjoyed being
the bad Cooper brother. One Christmas Eve night he got a little too
rowdy and things changed forever. Now the consequences of that fateful
night have come back in full force and the myths of Christmas might be
more real than he thought.
Rina Brewer is one of Santa’s elves. Not the tiny cute little toy
maker, but the sexy, petite, energy filled bombshell kind. She’s come to
Holiday to aid Justin in his new role as Santa’s executive, but as soon
as she sees the sexy ex-bad boy, she realizes the job may be more than
she bargained for.
As they work together to make this Christmas one to remember, an old
foe has come to town to make sure that his holiday is the coldest yet.
Warning: Contains a perky elf who dreams of something more, a
Christmas myth who may be a baddie, and a sexy ex-bad boy who craves
Christmas cookies…and a certain perky blonde.
Wow! Just wow! This book as so much funmas! I loved the twist about Justin being one of Santa's Exective because I didn't know what that was until Rina explained it all. I have to say it suits Justin to the letter! This is the perfect Christmas book because it just makes you feel the spirit of Christmas as your reading it! Jack Frost is such a dick! All I wanted to do was to punch him in his ice cald face! I can't wait for 'Finding Abigail' next year in February! I want to read it now!
Hey Book Lovers! Oh boy do I have a treat for you!!! I am a fan of Cynthia Eden's, I have been over the past few years ever since I discovered her book The Vampire's Kiss. Since then I have been an awesome follower of her great work. So today I give you.....one sexy Angel, one crazy ass hybrid, one smexy human and one chance to again fate.........ANGEL IN CHAINS!
ANGEL IN CHAINS BY CYNTHIA EDEN
As a fallen Angel of Death, Azrael is cursed to walk the earth alone
in search of redemption. One night, as he wanders the streets of New
Orleans, he discovers a woman surrounded by panther shifters. No longer
able to contain the anger simmering within, Az summons his dark powers
and attacks, determined to protect this innocent human from certain
Only Jade Pierce is no delicate flower. She’s spent years learning
to survive and fight the evil forces sent by her ex-lover who refuses to
let her go. But after seeing Az in action, she figures she could use a
little supernatural help. And so she plans a course of seduction
guaranteed to arouse his interest and his angelic passions…
**Unedited Excerpt from ANGEL IN CHAINS**
“They’re probably hunting you now.” He walked away from her and
headed toward the window that looked out over the street. “Hunting us,”
he added quietly and realized he was anticipating the fight. When had
he come to crave the fury? When had the bloodlust grown so within him? She stood as still as a statue before his door. Her hand was up,
hovering above the doorknob, and he could almost feel the fear rolling
off her in waves. But then she took a deep breath, and he saw her small shoulders
straighten. She shoved back the heavy tangle of her hair and turned to
face him. “How did you get us away from them?” Az shrugged once more. She took a step toward him. “You . . . you know what they are, right?” Amusement flared in him. “I did notice the claws.” Rather hard to miss those. She blinked, and her eyes narrowed as she studied him. He’d never
seen quite that shade of green before. She crept closer, bringing that
light scent of strawberries to him. When she stopped, she was less than a
foot away from him. It would be so easy to touch her. Though he knew well just how dangerous a touch could be. Yet she stood close enough to kiss. But angels weren’t supposed to kiss mortals . . . You’re not an angel anymore. The whisper came from deep inside of him. The same tempting whisper that he’d been fighting since his fall. You’re not an angel. Do what you want. You’re not an angel. Take what you want. He was discovering that he could want many things. The top of the woman’s head barely reached his shoulders. She tilted
her head and stared up at him. Then her gaze swept down his body. Az stiffened even before she whispered, “What are you?” Rather insulting question. “I’m the man who saved your life.” Did she need to know more? He didn’t think so. Her hand lifted and pressed against her mouth. A small trace of blood
still rested near her lips. “There were three of them, and, you’re big
and all, but there’s still just one of you.” She might just be one of the most ungrateful humans he’d ever
encountered. Stifling a sigh, Az inclined his head. “You’re welcome.” She stared in surprise for a moment. Then she laughed. A soft,
strangely lyrical sound spilled from her lips, and her wide smile lit up
her face. Not just pretty. Az tensed as the wave of need hit him. Not lust for blood or death. This time . . . the lust was just for her. You’re not an angel anymore. Take what you want. “Yeah,” she said, as her laughter faded but the smile still lingered
on her lips, “thanks for saving my ass.” Then she held out her hand to
him. “My name’s Jade. Jade Pierce.” He stared at her hand. She wiggled her fingers at him. Slowly, Az lifted his own hand and caught those wiggling fingers. Soft. “I am Azrael.” He dropped her hand. He hadn’t used the name Azrael in centuries. “Most just call me Az.” “Well, Az, it’s a pleasure to meet you.” Her gaze slid over his body
again. “But I’m gonna have to ask, once more, just what are—” The door crashed in behind her. She didn’t scream this time, but maybe Az just didn’t give her a chance to scream. Because as the three black panthers—fully shifted panthers—leapt into
the room, jumping over the broken door, Az grabbed Jade and threw her
toward the couch. Then he ran right for the snarling beasts. He should have known better than to let down his guard. Shifters and
their damn acute senses. They’d caught his scent, her scent, and
followed them right through the Quarter. “I warned you,” Az snapped and leapt at the nearest panther. He
caught the beast’s front paws and shoved the giant cat back. “You should
have listened.” There would be no more warnings now. Only death.
OMFG! I have been waiting forever for this book! I have read about the other two smexy angels, Keenan and Sam, but Az's book is the one I've been waiting for. OMG! It was freaking amazing! My heart broke for Az and Jade so many times but I have to admit I was kinda jealous over their relationship because I want Az for myself! hehehehe XD It was fab to see Sam, Seline and Beelzebub again but it was a shame not to see Keenan and Nicole, perhaps next time? There are so many twists and turns in this book that had me crying for 15 minutes (I'm sure Cynthia knows which one I mean) and shouting at my Kindle, "How could Cynthia do that?!?!?!?! That is just sooooo mean!" I would say that while crying but then I stopped once I noticed it was just a trick. So I relaxed and got back into the book.
I defo give this book a 1000000 out of 1000000! :D I really can't wait for book 4 and I can't help but wonder who it will be about!
