Wesley claims professional ghostwriter, Abby Bergeron, suddenly abandoned Tilly’s cookbook with no warning.

Blessed with an even more compelling allure than most vampires, Chiron has made a fortune in the human world, creating an empire of resorts and casinos. Since the betrayal and imprisonment of his master, he has existed outside the order of the Guardians, trusting no one. But now, the new vampire king has given him a peace offering: a scroll that could free his master. Following the relic’s magic leads him to a demon hotel deep in the Everglades, a lush paradise owned by a mysterious and
mesmerizing woman . . .

As far as Lilah knows, she’s lived her entire life within the confines of her enchanted estate. Memories of her own past are elusive and cloaked in shadows. Even Chiron can’t figure out exactly what she is, and if her intoxicating beauty is his destiny or an illusion drawing him ever closer to his demise—or perhaps to an even more tormenting choice, between his master and his mate . . .

It’s Time for my Saturday Reading Update ! What have you been reading this week ? Here’s some of my favorites – you can find my  Review at Good Reads Follow Me


My mother, father, brother, and sister were murdered. And I found them.
My only living relatives were my grandmother and one little sister, Reese.
Then, my grandmother died, leaving me as the only one responsible for my little sister.
My dad was a member of the Blackwings MC.
I always planned on becoming a brother. I just thought my dad would be there when I patched in.
But he wasn’t, and I was slowly drowning in anger and rage.
My club was behind me and did everything they could to help me.
But nothing was working.
Until the night I met her.

“If you want sexy, hot, alpha bikers who not only love their club but their brotherhood with a loyalty that runs deep through their veins, then look no further than the Blackwings MC. It’s got all that and then some. Carbon brings it all to the table in this book when he falls hard for Harper, who just happens to be Duke’s sister. With a past that some people don’t come back from, Harper puts one foot in front of the other and tries her hardest to not only pick up the pieces of a shattered childhood but go on in life to help those in need by becoming a counselor to help kids pick up their own shattered lives and help them to fulfill their own dreams. Do yourselves a favor and buy this book. You will not be disappointed. Five flaming gold stars from me.” – Slam Dunk’s Luscious Reads



Once Upon A Time…

Cecilia Marks was bullied.

Bullied her entire life because of an accident she had no control over, Cecilia began college hoping for a fresh start. To her dismay, she’s been faced with the same bullies only with crueler taunts and words that can slice deeper than the sharpest of knives.
A short run-in with a stunning man had her world turning upside down in ways she never expected.

Landon Powers was possessed.

Walking back into college ten years after he left, Landon hadn’t expected to fall for the gorgeous brunette he ran into. But there she was, soft-spoken, unassuming, and the strongest woman he’d ever met. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for her. Including making it known, she wasn’t to be bullied.

Newly covered, rewritten, revised, and freshly edited, bullied has been transformed into ONCE UPON A TIME.

Book Review * Cross Breed by Lora Leigh

Welcome to Saturday Morning ! 

This week released a ton of great book but one that everyone has been excised about hit the stand, The Newest  book in the Breeds series.

*My Review  below has some spoilers . But Read on :



Book link

Fans of #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh’s scorching Breed series first met Cassie as a little girl in Elizabeth’s Wolf. Now Cassie has finally come into her own as a young woman, and she’s about to discover the one she is destined for—but it is unclear whether her fate is to be mated for life, or marked for death…

The Breeds are humans altered before conception with the DNA of the predators of Earth. But although they all carry the genetic material of beasts within them, Cassandra Sinclair stands apart. A unique mix of wolf, coyote and human, she is revered by many—but preyed upon by others. She is fiercely protected by her community…but no one manages to stop her when she slips away one day to offer her body in exchange for her sister’s safety.

The man she succumbs to surprises her by unleashing her inner animal in ways she never dreamed possible—and provokes her deep, furious rage. To Cassie’s shock, he is the mate she has long awaited. She may never be able to forgive his deception. Still, as dangerous enemies track her, and as the threat of all-out war between Breeds and the humans who despise them hovers in the air, they must join forces and hold fast to each other.

But the passionate union between them holds a potential that could change the world—and some will do anything to stop it…

First to answer some questions ? 

  • No it’s not a standalone – but you don’t have had too have read all the books.
  • I would read – Elizabeth’s Wolf first – its Cassies Mom book and  its introduce you to Cassie.
  • Is it worth the $12.99  price tag – Depends if you can wait for it. My library has it but you might have to wait awhile ( 23 in line)

My Net Galley Review :  So Cassie’s mate is Dog ( Council Coyote ) -no big surprise.  But it’s the mating that’s the story. Because nothing is easy when it comes to Breeds, Breed politics  and these two strong people. I am not going to give anything away -so read the book because there lots of up and downs and intrigue going on just like the other books. It’s a perfect blend of the old and the new in this long running book series that will not disappoint any fan.  

PS this is not the end. We see a glimpse of the next book and it looks like another winner,   Lisa

Defending Allye *Review





Love is a life-and-death risk for the Mountain Mercenaries in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s explosive series of alpha heroes, hot action, and hard passion…

Ever since his rescue op off the Pacific Coast, Mountain Mercenary Gray Rogers hasn’t been able to forget his latest “job”—Allye Martin. Any other woman would have panicked during a rescue, but the wily dancer kept her cool—even after being kidnapped by an elusive human trafficker. And Gray couldn’t be happier when a grateful Allye follows him home to Colorado Springs…

For Allye, finding sanctuary in the arms—and bed—of the former Navy SEAL is only temporary. People are disappearing off the streets of San Francisco, victims of the same underground trade that targeted her, and Allye could be the key to dismantling the entire operation. She’s willing to do anything to bring them down. Gray isn’t—for good reason. But you don’t say no to a tough girl like Allye who refuses to play it safe.

Now Gray is risking more than ever before. The Mountain Mercenaries have his back. But is it enough to keep the woman he loves out of harm’s way?

About the Author

A true believer in the happily ever after, Stoker enjoys writing novels in which romance turns to love. To learn more about the author and her work, visit her website,, or find her on Facebook at

Net Galley Review : Book 1 of a new series and a great addition to her other series. Mountain Mercenaries are ex soldiers righting the wrong in the world. And kidnapped Allye is the latest job for Gray .But Allye has information that might keep her safe and help the team so she contact them for help. And drain back to Gray, 

As in Susan other books the alpha hero saves the girl and then the real story happens.  As two people find themselves while battling an evil man after Allye.  But even if the story is basically the same it’s well written with good characters and interesting story well worth your time spent .    Differently  worth reading if you are a fan  & Free to borrow with Kindle unlimited if you have never read this author,  Lisa

This is the complete series for the Kane family.
The Kanes follows Rachael and Richard Kane before they had Spencer, Ryan, Matt, and Danielle.

The eighties were well before technology became life. Dating wasn’t a swipe left kind of thing. It was chance encounters, exchanged numbers on pieces of paper, and waiting by the telephone so you didn’t miss a call.
And yet…Richard Kane still found his forever in Rachael and didn’t let her go.

Come see how the Kane boys and the one Kane princess came to be.
