Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .

Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.

I’m afraid this book didn’t do it for me. I was bored and didn’t complete it. A tired story-line.

"Sweet Baby Jesus in booty shorts! Thank you, Dakota Cassidy. I'd read the damn phone book if you wrote it!" New York Times bestselling author, Robyn Peterman. Dakota Cassidy, USA Today bestselling author of The Accidental Dragon, brings you a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy Accidentally Aphrodite, Book 10 in the Accidentally Paranormal series. Get swept away to Greece in this international romp where you'll meet a few Gods and Goddesses, and fall in love with Quinn Morris as she transforms from a heartbroken mess to the goddess of love. Mythology buff Quinn Morris has always wanted to visit Greece, where her inner hardcore romantic envisioned proposing to her boyfriend. And she's finally here--with her friend Ingrid. She might not have found love at the Parthenon, thanks to her cheating ex, but she has found big boobies...and swirly purple eyes...and sparkling skin. Oh, and Greek hottie Khristos, who claims to be descended from a goddess and swears Quinn's the new Aphrodite. With help from Khristos, and support from Ingrid's employers--Nina, Wanda, and Marty--Quinn has to learn all the tricks of the matchmaking trade, STAT, lest she has her new friend Cupid sticking arrows in all the wrong places. All while dealing with her man-hating mother, guarding her own heart from Khristos, and protecting herself from an invisible foe who might want to snatch Quinn's newfound powers from her--dead or alive. Content notes: fantasy, paranormal, romantic comedy, contemporary romance, deities, Gods & Goddesses, vacation romance, Greek vacation romance.

Aphrodite is the Goddess of Love and decides on who are True Mates and tells #Cupid where to shoot the arrow.

This is the 10th book in the series and clearly the author has run out of really good ideas of how the ‘Accident’ can happen, who to, and what the outcome will be.

I got the first 2 chapters as a Freebie in the Interview Book by Dakota and bought the book on the strength of them. But they were the only good parts – sorry Dakota. I failed to finish the book as it failed to raise even a snigger and seemed to lack action and story.

Number 2 finds his Mate

Maximus Compass is a vampire without direction. Without heart. And without soul. He lost his true mate in the great battle against the dragon king, and now must face life alone. And yet … something is happening to his agony. It’s fading away, leaving him with barely a memory of the female he believed to be his one and only. As his mind clears he starts to wonder if the mate bond had been nothing more than a manufactured ploy? This suspicion explodes within him right around the time he runs back into a certain wolf shifter. Mischa Lebron is a complication he doesn’t need in his life. He can’t erase her from his mind though, and while memories of his supposed true mate continue to fade into mere shadows, his one night with Mischa is blazingly strong. But they’re not of the same supernatural race, so there’s no way for a true bond to exist between them. Right? When an old threat rips apart their pack, Maximus will come to realize that he would do anything to save Mischa. That the mate he thought was perfect and precious was nothing on the shifter he walked away from. Now Maximus truly has everything to lose. Note from author: Broken Compass is a spinoff set within the Supernatural Prison World. Told in dual POVs from Maximus Compass and Mischa Lebron.

Having sorted out the Dragons and won the Dragon Marked war, you would think that life would settle down for the Quads and the Twins.

But not so fast.

Only 1 of the Quads has found their True Mate,  and only 1 of the Twins ditto. Not to mention, that they may have killed the Dragon but they left the Sorcerer (and his daughters) alive.

So Quad number 2 has to find a Mate and the Sorcerer needs to be killed.

A nice continuation of the story-line and I’m looking forward to the rest of the stories on the 2 remaining Quads and Louis their Sorcerer – and almost Pack.

The fae live among us. And one of them is a serial killer. I thought this would be a simple profiling case. Just another Jack-the-Ripper wannabe, prowling London’s streets, searching for easy kills. I was wrong. This killer is fae, and he’s as elusive as smoke on the wind. But I’m an FBI profiler, and it’s my job to track him down. It doesn’t matter that one of the main suspects--a lethally alluring fae--is trying to seduce me… or kill me, I’m not sure which. I won’t be stopped, not even when panic roils through the streets of London, or when the police start to suspect me. As I close in on the killer, I follow him to a magical shadow realm that’s like nothing I ever expected, where I’m hunted like prey. Fine. Bring it on. I’m an FBI Agent. And it turns out I have magical powers of my own.

I got bored by this overly complicated novel -and it lacked a compelling story-telling. Didn’t manage to complete.

Small-town reporter and witch Stacy Justice has her hands full when her cousin Cinnamon's bar is set on fire, the investigation of which reveals that someone wants Stacy dead, and that her so-called magic skills are rusty.

A cosy mystery with witches whose magic is gentle, ‘seeing’ and healing mainly – the Wise Women.

It is written in the 1st person as the story unfolds so you know only what Stacy knows; thus very difficult to know the solution to the mystery in advance. You need to read on to find out who dun it and why.
