Escape hell. Save the world. Simple, huh?My name's Jynx. This morning I was a princess of hell.Now I'm it's most wanted.After a coup in hell, Lucifer's niece, Jynx Morningstar, is on the run with the king of hell in her back pocket (in handy stone doll form) and a hellcat with delusions of grandeur. To save her uncle and by extension, hell and the world above, Jynx must evade the legions of hell, master her human magic and track down her father: a healer witch.Simple. Yeah, right....What she doesn't expect is to walk into the middle of a shapeshifter/vampire turf war, a sexy as sin alpha werewolf who claims she's his one true mate, or to actually care what happens to the residents of small town, Boring.But when Death comes a'knocking she must make a choice. Go big and reveal what she is, or go home and leave them to their fates... A demon would leave them in a heartbeat, but can Jynx rise above her demon blood and prove what a true princess of hell is made of?Please note: contains high amounts of snark, an adorable werewolf looking for true love, a demon princess trying to avoid 'feelings' and a viking-wearing hellcat.

Oh yes, another snarky writer… and yes echoes of Robyn Peterman and that shifter town of Asshat – yes , Mina, I did recognise these …

But I do like this Princess Jynx, and I find I do like Mina Carter – the first book of hers I’ve read.

The storyline is nice, but I would have preferred the book to have been longer and more complicated. Still can’t wait to find out what Uncle Lucy will do next.

Let Shakespeare name her

Unlike her famous older brother Maxon, Princess Portia isn't known for killing demons or attracting admirers. The reason why is simple: a spell was cast on Portia, and the magic has marked her to one day transform into a dreaded Void demon.

To fight this horrible fate, Portia’s spent her life hiding in libraries and learning magic. But when the Void demons threaten to destroy all the after-realms—and the handsome dragon Emperor Tempest offers his help—then Portia suspects that her future holds more than just a demonic metamorphosis.

Fate is calling the bookworm princess onto the battlefield. 

This time, it’s a fight against both deadly enemies and her heart’s desires. 

This for me, was more of a novella in length and thus was not long enough to include sufficient originality. It was less complex in storyline than the original novel. Also, author, Brits (males) do not end every sentence  with ‘luv’. I know because my husband calls me this, but only a few times a day, not every time he speaks to me..

The mess all started when I punched a 400-year-old fairy reality TV star in the throat.

Things got really weird from there.

Before I could blink, I was fighting wererats, getting kidnapped by superheroes, stealing a cape inhabited by the ghost of a magical genius, and trying to save the world alongside a 2,000-year-old immortal who wields a piece of Noah's Ark. All while struggling to not get evicted or fired from my job.

That was just Monday. Tuesday is shaping up to be busier.

My name is Sage Hawthorne: butt-kicking sorceress, professional bodyguard, amateur superhero, and occasional screwup.

For the world's sake, let's hope this isn't one of those times I screw up.

Monster Madness 2019 and previous

I rather enjoyed book 1 of this short new series. The snarly and snarky bad tempered sorceress with no impulse control I felt is a character that that has a lot of promise for future books. I also like Puck, her cloak, which is imbued with the mind of a very brilliant young sorcerer who manages to train and restrain her somewhat.

Looking forward to the next book.

And the unicorn is on fire?

Burn Baby Burn Book Cover Burn Baby Burn
Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) #

Pen & Page Publishing
(14 May 2019)

Bailey Ember Gardener Quinn should’ve read the manual on caring for an incubus before marrying hers. The marriage license hadn’t mentioned anything about their sexy, insatiable ways. If she doesn’t get a single night of undisturbed rest soon, she’ll snap—or go on a napalm bender.

Either would work.

Recruiting Tiffany “Perkette” Perkins to be her partner-in-crime isn’t the best idea, but nothing says fun quite like a road trip, and Perkette the Misdemeanor Collecting Queen could teach the devil a thing or two about having a good time.

Add in a string of rabies cases, more puppies than she can count (or readily adopt,) a job promotion, and her very own incubus in disguise on the hunt for her, and Bailey’s in for one hell of a ride.

Warning: this novel contains excessive humor, a unicorn on a napalm bender, Quinn on the hunt, and more shenanigans than you can shake a stick at. Proceed with caution.

I just love this series and fall about laughing – out loud!

You just never know who will turn up, what they will say or even do! What do you say to Anubis when he gives you a dog – or is it a dog? And then offers to babysit? And then there are the Gorgon grandparents, and yet more grandparents because there may be a succubus too or and angel – and remember these angels don’t have heads, but still talk and see things and babysit the kids..

So once upon a time there was a flood – and Noah built an arc and took animals into it, but he forgot some, such as cindercorns, and they managed to survive the flood and mated with ordinary unicorns, and at which time you have lost the story.

In case you haven’t come across this series, I’ll just explain the difference between a cindercorn and a unicorn. Basically cindercorns like fire. They like to eat napalm and use it as fuel. They can then run very fast indeed. And some can use sunlight to fly..

Got it?

If not, then read the book and have fun in this very fantastical world that RJ Blain has built.

Ooh flames!

Playing with Fire
A Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count) #1

What do you get when you mix gorgons, an incubus, and the Calamity Queen? Trouble, and lots of it. 

For Bailey, catering to the magical is a tough gig on a good day, but she has few other options. She can either keep spiking drinks with pixie dust to keep the locals happy, or spend the rest of her life cleaning up some of the world’s nastiest magical substances. 

Years after helping Police Chief Samuel Quinn escape an unhappy marriage, Bailey is once again entangled in his personal affairs. To make matters worse, Quinn’s ex-wife is angling for revenge, tossing Bailey into the deep end along with her sexiest enemy.

Warning: This novel contains excessive humor, action, excitement, adventure, magic, romance, and bodies. Proceed with caution.

A 5 star read.

There are just so many mythological creatures turning up in this novel – and each and every one of them has attitudes.

Especially when they encounter our heroine – a vanilla human – or is she? Who is a kick-ass snarky virgin. And it is this latter descriptor that brings her to the attention of the gorgon community.

We learn a great deal about the gorgon society in this novel and their mating habits, and also just who finds a use for succubus and incubus in their love life – and what happens when you get a incubus drunk in a bar.

And then there is also the Quinn family – I found the court room scene hilarious – don’t stop reading before you get there!

Lots of fun and hilarity in a nicely crafted mystery story, well written with an easy style – and no grammar or proofing mistakes obvious. Some Americanism in the verbs but I can accept that.

Enjoying this series very much.
