Knox of Iviland has spent his life competing in the All Wars, where vicious warriors with supernatural powers fight to the death to claim new realms. One winner takes everything—and all losers die. Enslaved as a child for his ability to control shadows, the most ruthless champion in history will stop at nothing to kill his king. But first he must win the battle for Earth. When a fearsome weapon imprisons every combatant in ice, centuries pass without progress…until she walks in.
Vale London craves a fun arctic getaway with her foster sister before settling down to open a bakery. Street-tough but vulnerable, she is unprepared to find ancient gods escaping a frozen cave—merciless beings who target her when she inadvertently enters their war.
Though Vale is now his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can prove victorious, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

✶ Lyric’s Accidental Mate ✶⠀
Get your copy free with the link in my bio.⠀
➘ Read an excerpt below ➘⠀
Rowan’s wolf was restless. Lying next to the woman he already knew owned him body and soul, he decided to stretch his legs and maybe let his wolf out. Knowing he was able to become a furry beast, and accepting the fact was becoming easier with each passing second.⠀
He slid out of bed, admiring Lyric’s naked form. His body responded to the sight of her luscious curves. The thought of sliding between her thighs and waking his mate back up almost had him doing just that, but a feeling something wasn’t right made him dress in record time. Easing out into the hallway, he wished there was a way to bar the door, other than breaking the lock, but he didn’t want to prevent Lyric from getting out in case of an emergency.⠀
His wolf scratched at his mind, wanting to be let out. Rowan allowed the beast to surface, just enough to help him navigate the halls he’d never been in. The dimly lit walkways inclined as if they were leading back toward the surface a bit. He came to a halt outside a huge steel door where another state-of-the-art keypad was located. The camera showed him several men in camo searching around the surface near the entrance. Rage threatened to consume him at the thought of them breaking into the safe house where he and his mate were sleeping.⠀
He punched in the code Lyric had used to access the other door, unimpressed when the thick door’s bolts could be heard unlocking. His wolf’s hearing picked up the men above moving down the hidden entrance toward him. Making sure he locked the door behind him, Rowan let more of his beast out, preparing to meet them. He’d protect what was his, and the people behind him were his, especially Lyric, his mate.⠀
“Hello, boys. Can I help you?”⠀
So five years ago my now-wife wrote a prequel to my Crimson Shadow series, putting a touching & romantic air on an otherwise tragic story. We've since built further on our co-developed world, but this remains one of the original projects that found us dabbling in one-another's works.
Coming this December... A woman who considers herself unlovable and a polar bear shifter determined to show her how wrong she is. 🐻🎄🎅😁 #BDSM#shifters#paranormalromance#christmas#holidayreading#authorsofinstagram#writersofinstagram#romanceauthor
BEAR'S BEAUTY (A CHRISTMAS REALM TALE)
A rare mix between a pixie and a human, Melody Beacon is not your ordinary woman. Challenged all her life for not being one or the other, she considers herself unlovable. So when Magnus Koldklaw tries to seduce her, she can’t help but think he’s mocking her. After all, why would a man like him want to be with a woman like her?
One look at Melody Beacon was all it took for bear shifter Magnus Koldklaw to decide he wanted her. One whiff of her scent, and he’s certain she’s his mate.
Unfortunately, Melody doesn’t seem to feel the same way. However, when they’re forced to work together on a secret project for Santa, they are irrevocably drawn to each other. And when Magnus discovers it’s her insecurities keeping them apart, he becomes determined to show her she’s worthy of love and so much more.
TBR THURSDAY || A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness 💌
Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell. ·
✨ Anyone else watching the show?? It has its cringey, cheesy moments (and needs more heat) but I still really like it! ✨
It's time for another #ThursdayAesthetic - this week's theme is RAGE. Which is fitting, because in BOUND SPIRITS, Chris Wilson must battle the rage-filled poltergeist that's tormenting her step-mother-to-be. (Find it along with all of the #RestlessSpirits books at the link in my bio!)
This bracelet reminds me of Delilah’s tats in Savage Redemption. The stars and natural imagery are so her, like her open and optimistic nature. Even when life gets her down, she remembers to look up and see the bright side.
Bitten by the Beast (Virgin Blood book 1) by Alexa Riley
Goodreads Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars
I have mixed feelings about this book. First of all I LOVED the new take on vampire lore. I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I find lore and twists on it fascinating. When an author decides to put their own twist on a classic I’m almost always into it. I think purists (in regards to stories and lore) are missing out on an important part of literary history. ANYWAY this story kept some of the standards of the genre and switch up some others. That being said this particular romance was very instalove heavy which I almost always hate. This wasn’t just instalove though it was almost like they met and BOOM they are both head over heels in love. IDK man proper instalove like that just isn’t as enjoyable for me to read. Even though I’m pretty sure this entire series will rely heavily on instalove I want to continue reading it. This book introduced some overarching issues that I would like to see resolved and I want to see the rest of the vampires happy too lol. This book kinda reminded me (in a very broad way) of Kiera Blackwood’s Pierced so if you enjoyed that story consider picking this one up too.

🧡Kiss of Midnight🧡
By Lara Adrian
The Midnight Breed series is my latest series collection focus this year #2018goals
It's been a while since I last read this series, and I had intended to wait until I'd collected them all before I started re-reading, but I made the mistake of starting the first book and now I can't pull myself away.🤭
This is a vampire based pnr series with a difference, not the usual vamps in this series, oh no, these vamps are the result of an alien species that were trapped on earth. The Ancients discovered that the blood of humans could sustain them, and through their feeding and rape of human females, the first generation of hybrids were created. In order to ensure humanities continued existence, the Gen One offspring turned on their sires and attempted to to forge a new way of living.
Many generations now exist, and this series focuses on their lives, battles, wars and loves.
*** Are you trying to collect a series this year? ***
At a crowded dance club a sensual black-haired stranger stirs Gabrielle's deepest fantasies. But later than night reality shifts to a darker and more deadly realm when she witnesses a murder outside the club; in a shattering instant she is propelled into a world where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite. With her future inextricably bound to the seductive stranger, Breed warrior vampire Lucan, Gabrielle must confront a destiny of danger, seduction and the darkest pleasure of all.

The Wolf's Dream Mate: Howl's Romance
When your dream lover becomes your reality, the real fairytale begins…
This very modern take on the tale of Sleeping Beauty isn’t for the faint of heart.
Nicknamed the big bad wolf, Dr. Paxton Noble is a sexy shifter notorious for his bedside manner and nocturnal activities. When an unidentified woman is rushed through the emergency room doors, his life is turned upside down. Something about her scent stirs more than just his libido. She stirs his wolf. She’s unconscious and now he’s compelled to figure out why and wake the sleeping beauty.
Evelyn Grisham is no princess, but the unsuspecting woman is a pawn in a game that’s left her comatose. Attacked in the park, this feisty cat isn’t taken down by a pricked finger on a spinning wheel, but a syringe filled with venom. Now, Evie is stuck in a dream world that only Pax can enter.
Pax wants to do more than wake Evie. She’s his mate. He has to figure out how to bring her back. The twist? An unexpected connection that brings reality into dreams with a lot of paranormal steam comes to the rescue. He’ll have to use all his smarts to wake his beauty, before dreams are the only communication they have. #millytaiden#paranormalromance#reading#books#bookish#igreads#Humor#BBW#MillyTaidenBooks#Paranormal#Romance#booknerd#booknews#amazon#kindle#bookworm#Bookstagram#authorsofinstagram#Indie#indieauthor#writer#authors#kindleunlimited#bookstagrammer#igbooks
