Shattered Glass
Destiny Hawkins
(Shattered Hearts Series, #1)
Publication date: November 4th 2017
Genres: Erotica, Paranormal, Romance

Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a steamy paranormal romance series where a dark queen has met her match, and a wolf has met his mate.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I lived in a world of darkness, never to see the light again.

It’s been eleven years since my father cursed Crystal City, since he condemned me to a life of loneliness and misery. By taking away everything that my mother loved, he took everything that I knew and cared for. Everything, but the throne. Only what good was being a queen in a city of mindless killers? A city that would never see the sunlight until the day of my death.

I truly had nothing to live for…

…Or so I thought.

The night that Wolfe was dragged into my palace, I knew that my life would never be the same. We were childhood friends once, but we went our separate ways. He became captain of the pirates, and I ascended to the diamond throne.

My once sworn protector had become my enemy, but we were both alone, and the connection we felt was almost unbearable to ignore.

My heart only cracked after my father abandoned me, but Wolfe would completely shatter it.

For someone that hasn’t felt anything for years, that wasn’t such a bad thing.

Check out the excerpt.

We stared at one another, her probably wondering how I was going to kill her, and me, wondering if I should even kill her at all. I knew that Falcon would never intentionally hurt me, which meant that he truly did love her, and I understood that for this woman, she couldn’t help who she fell in love with. Who wouldn’t fall for a man like Falcon?

“Get it over with, Queen Allora,” the head of the council, Declan, said. His bright red eyes darkened into a maroon shade as his lips curved into a smile. It was hard to believe that he was once an innocent little boy. “You’re torturing yourself. This man betrayed you, and this woman crossed you. He was your lover, and yet, she was his lover. That doesn’t sound right to me. Don’t let him soften you with his pleading, and don’t let her tears fool you. They both knew exactly what they were doing.”

“Allora.” Falcon growled. “Don’t listen to him. He has no heart. You’re not like him ― you don’t have to do this to her. Whatever you’re thinking, just―”

“Quiet!” I yelled. “I trusted you…” I couldn’t finish my sentence, but I would finish what I came here to do.

The woman whimpered again as I reached down to touch her shoulder, and once my hand was resting against her shaking body, I realized that we were both equally afraid. She was afraid of dying, and I was afraid of losing the little good in me that I had left.

The woman swallowed, her blue eyes filling with more tears as she stared into my cold greens. “I’m sorr―”

Before she could finish her apology, I ripped my hand away, leaving her body to be engulfed in blue flames.

Taken By The Huntsman 
Spellbound Hearts Book 1
by Mistral Dawn 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Adult Fantasy

Discarded and ignored by those around her for most of her life, Cassie is a lonely human woman struggling to find her place in the world and meaning in her life. Cadeyrn is the Erlking, the leader of the Wild Hunt, a hundreds of thousands of years old Fae who has always known his purpose. He has spent his entire long existence tracking the criminals of Fairie and punishing them for their crimes. 

While hunting for the murderer of a child who has escaped to Earth Cadeyrn comes across Cassie and realizes that she is the one that the great mother goddess has designated as his soul mate. He kidnaps her and takes her to his fortress in Fairie to protect her from his many enemies. He knows she will be angry and that he’ll have to work to earn her trust, but he finds his task to be even more challenging than he had thought it would be due to Cassie’s difficulty in opening her heart. 

Will Cadeyrn be able to convince Cassie that the bond between them is real and earn her love?

 

 

Bound By The Summer Prince 
Spellbound Hearts Book 2

The Summer Court is in an uproar. The king has just been executed for unpardonable crimes, and the queen is prostrate with grief over his loss. This leaves the Summer kingdom bereft of true leadership; a problem which is compounded by the fact that the laws of Fairie require balance to be maintained by having a male and a female ruler for both Season Courts at all times. Uaine, the Summer prince, is the only one who can put things right, but he is without a mate. Knowing that he must take a bride quickly, for the sake of his people, even though he is struggling with his own feelings of pain and anger over his father’s treachery, he goes for a walk in a forest near the palace to try to clear his head and determine how best to choose a female to rule beside him. 

While walking Uaine discovers a human female running loose in Fairie, which is against the most basic tenets of Fae law. Furious at one more problem he must deal with, he takes her prisoner and locks her in the dungeon; only to discover later that she is his soul-mate. The magical bond between them means they are meant to be together forever, but humans can’t feel the magic of Fairie. Will Uaine be able to win her heart and convince her that she can trust him to keep her safe from all the dangers of Fairie…including himself?

Roni is a human con woman and petty thief. Having run afoul of the local crime syndicate in the city where she is staying, she finds herself running for her life. Trouble is no stranger to her, but when she falls through a hole in a wall and finds herself in a world with carnivorous trees and rocks that eat people she realizes she may have found more of it than she can deal with. Rescued/arrested by the prince of the Summer Court, it doesn’t take long for her to formulate a plan to use him to get herself home. Unfortunately for her, she soon finds that her heart, which she had thought long ago turned to stone, has begun to feel the love she has been playing at. Will she be able to overcome a lifetime of caution and allow herself to follow her heart? Can a criminal love a cop?

 

Please be aware that this book contains explicit sexual scenes, depictions of BDSM, and anal play. If these things disturb you, then this may not be the book for you.

 

 

Intrigue In The Summer Court 
Spellbound Hearts #2.5 

Jillian knows something bad is going to happen! She has been a loyal adviser to the throne and friend of the queen, Briallen, for thousands of years, and now Roni and Uaine’s wedding and coronation are to take place in just a couple days. The Summer Court will have a new king and queen, who, it is hoped, can repair the damage and heal the schism the late king created. 

But Jillian can’t shake the feeling that trouble is brewing. Many of the Summer nobles aren’t happy about the changes that are taking place in the Summer Court, and many of the other Fae just aren’t too sure about having a human on the throne…even if she has been blessed by the goddess. When Angelica, the leader of the Pixies, comes to her with news of a plot to murder the prince and princess, Jillian’s suspicions are confirmed. Will the two of them be able to unravel this conspiracy in time to save the royal couple? Or will prejudice prevail, and the hope for peace in Fairie be lost forever?

Captivated By The Winter King 
Spellbound Hearts Book 3

 

Kate is a woman on the run. After years of being physically and emotionally abused by her fiance, she’s finally had enough. But leaving might be even more dangerous than staying, so she needs to get as far away as she can as fast as possible. A late night, desperate drive through the pouring rain ends suddenly when a cat appears in the middle of the road. While trying to avoid the half-drowned creature, Kate loses control of her car and crashes through a portal to Fairie.

Ankou is a fallen God of Death and the king of the Winter Court of Fairie, and he’s facing pressure from every direction. The magic of the Court is out of balance due to the centuries-long lack of a queen. He is harried constantly by the Court nobles who want him to either step down or take a mate. All the duties of a ruling pair rest squarely on his shoulders. And added to all this is a soul-crushing loneliness. His existence stretches back hundreds of millennia, and in all that time he has never found the one person who could warm his lonely heart. He is exhausted and discouraged, and the last thing he needs is to go tearing off into the night on a fool’s errand. But one of his lingering god powers is the ability to sense the right course of action to follow, and his instincts are screaming at him to go to a particular place in the forest of the Winter kingdom and wait. Imagine his surprise when he finds the one he has been waiting for his whole life!

Using a careful blend of patience, seduction, and domination, the Winter king tries to win his soulmate’s love. Feeling safe and valued for the first time in her memory, Kate explores her new freedom by agreeing to try the BDSM games her lover suggests. As she experiments with both domination and submission, she learns just how liberating surrender can be. Will Ankou be able to convince Kate that she can trust him with her feelings as well as her body? Will Kate find a way to overcome the trauma of her past and open up her heart to accept the love that is offered to her? Can these two broken people find a way to fit all their disparate pieces together into a stronger, united whole? You’ll have to read to find out!

MY REVIEW

Micah. Ella.

Hers. His.

Mine.

When I started this series, it appeared the sex demon’s curse and their mating tattoos bound these two so tightly. Now I wonder what would happen if neither of these things were in play.

Micah and Ella have a chemistry and emotional bond that is so strong, I think they might have come together on their own.

Ella is now Queen of the vampires. She ascended after killing the previous queen, a psycho who, though frozen in the ageless body of a young girl, was anything but. I think she never aged that much emotionally either. Maybe that explains her murderous temper tantrums and vicious impulses. She darn near killed Ella’s sister Hannah.

It’s almost time for Ella to go before the Shadow Agency . They want her head, believing she drank from a human. She did, kind of. Micah is part human, but he’s also part demon, and a discovery about Micah’s mother and maybe identifying his father could save her life.

Many are dying as Ella struggles with her new role as vampire queen, and to top it off, she’s gone girly. That’s something I never expected out of her. She’s a no frills, no regrets, stone cold killer, and no one messes with her. I wondered how Micah would take this side of her. Heck, I wondered how she would.

Hannah, Ella’s younger sister, is mostly recovered after suffering the horrendous torture from the previous vamp queen, and Micah’s brother, Eli, feeling himself not worthy of her, has driven her right into the arms of hot lion shifter, Dante. And they have a surprise for everyone.

And this is where I also got a surprise. Something crazy happens to Ella and the following scenes are insane. There is so much blood shed, so much pay back, and so much insidious mind play, I was glued to the pages. I was reminded of Akasha from the Queen of the Damned movie. So beautiful, so deadly, so without any restraint. There was one person who I felt had it coming to him, and for a long time. If his fate had been played out on the big screen, I would have had to peek between my fingers to get through it. Whew!

Micah may finally learn the fate of his mother and the identity of his father. The council may finally get Ella’s head on a platter, and nasty Julian’s self-serving manipulations may cost many innocents their lives.

Wolves and vamps come too close to each other and fur may fly and fangs may drip blood.

And Micah and Ella have their battle of wills in and out of the bedroom, which makes for some steamy romance and fun dialogue.

Never dull. Never slow. I gulped down this story like a glass of chilled ice tea on a hot, muggy day. And my thirst was satisfied for now. But it will be back, wanting more.

The worst moment of Micah’s life was when Ella nearly died in his arms. Her miraculous recovery should have been the start of their future. Unfortunately, a new demonic heritage, the Shadow Agency’s corruption and Julian, the vampire who turned Ella, are testing their relationship. Despite hotter-than-ever sex and a variety of new places and positions to explore, Micah begins to wonder if a relationship based on lust can survive for more than a few scorching-hot months.
Ella has forgiven, but not forgotten, the fact that Micah once plunged a dagger through her heart. Everything with Micah is passion, excitement and an uncontrollable desire to explore his body in a variety of very satisfying ways. But as buried secrets, ongoing lies and murderous deceptions pile up, Ella is reminded that she and Micah’s relationship was based on a curse. In order to forge a future together, Ella and Micah will have to face down their personal demons—and prove that love and trust are more than just words.

MY REVIEW

Blurb
Ella Grey’s life sucks. A half-breed vampire, she does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He’s hot, dangerous and knows it. He’d be just Ella’s type if he weren’t likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line.

A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus’ spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it’s not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she’d feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella’s not careful it’ll pull her straight from Micah’s arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.

MY REVIEW

Synopsis

Hannah Grey will do anything to escape the tortured memories haunting her. Every breath brings back the pain, the fear and the unbearable knowledge that she’ll never be the once-perfect girl everyone thought her to be. When the self-destructive fog of drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex starts to clear, Dante, a lion shifter sexier than sin itself, emerges through the darkness ready to rescue her for the second time in so many weeks.

In the safety of Dante’s embrace, Hannah allows herself to become the woman she’s always wanted to be—smart, sexy, capable and empowered. His every touch electrifies. His hot, hungry kisses set her senses ablaze. As Dante masters her body, Hannah finally finds the strength to master her fears.

Perfection shatters as a mysterious vampire escalates from anonymous phone calls to violent encounters. When Hannah’s enemies unite, placing both her and Dante in mortal peril, it’s going to take all of her newfound strength to face the coming darkness and save the man she loves.

Synopsis

Created in Darkness and born of Death, three brothers carry a deadly secret.

One lethal enough to have the dead outnumber the living. Necromancer. Biohazard. Zombie. The abomination inside Bastian Hale demanded constant payment—fresh blood. Without it, he’d rot from the inside out and become little more than a mindless monster. Some called him a living vampire, others considered him contaminated. One woman would call him hers.

Morgan Cross never understood the innate necromancer power running through her veins or why ghosts and zombies sought to ruin her life. When someone’s deadly obsession throws her into Bastian’s arms, their pasts come back to haunt them and she must avoid the one thing she was born to do—claim him as hers.

Excerpt (Rated PG-13)

dark secrets Teaser2

I turned my head, searching for the spot where I’d stood before being tackled. In place of the wall, there was now a gigantic hole. I squinted, turning my face away from the last rays of golden sunshine dropping behind the sea of snow-kissed evergreens surrounding the secluded house.
Thirty minutes earlier and the sun would have fried my retinas. I waved away the remaining smoke and sought out Micah. He stood speechless in front of me, his blue-green eyes wide, sensual mouth open. Under the pungent scent of sulfur mixed with singed hair and fur, I picked up the faint muskiness of demon blood.
Dark-red lines dripped in a horizontal gash on Micah’s cheek, caused most likely from the flying debris, but he didn’t seem to notice. Dirt smudged his bare chest, and pieces of wood tangled in his shaggy golden hair. The shadow inside me—my feral inner vampire—just as much a part of me as my fangs and beating heart, preened at the sight of sweaty, dirty, alpha male.
Lethal. Deadly. Demon.
Mine.
Micah wore nothing except athletic shorts slung low on his hips, his normal attire when we trained together—something we hadn’t been doing much of lately. The stark, crimson lines of our mating tattoos traced his hip, curved down, over defined muscles and disappeared beneath the band of his shorts. Water dripped from his hair, plastering the dark strands in clumps to his forehead and nape. Each breath flexed an impressive show of muscle in his chest and abs. Good to know his assassination attempt hadn’t damaged my hormones.
I moved my gaze from the trail of hair down his stomach to the hand he held fisted at his side. The flesh smoldered. I looked from his smoking fist to the hole where the wall used to be.
I turned back to Micah, used a thumb to gesture behind me. “If this is about leaving the toilet seat up, I’ll stop bitching about it.”

You may be thinking, why feature this book, it isn’t horror? Oh, but it is. It’s horrific, savage, and sexy. It’s freakin great!

I used to see the word erotic and instantly shy away from a book. Now that I’ve begun to read outside my normal genres I can’t imagine how many great stories I’ve missed.

Enjoy my review of Crimson Sins

MY REVIEW

I’ve read Madeline’s other books so I knew I was going to get a good read. But holy smokes, this book was above and beyond what I expected.

First, I’ll warn you, this is for mature readers only. The author writes a very visual story which includes some gory violence, torture, and sex.

I’m a fan of character driven novels and my favorites were the three brothers, Bastian, the oldest, then the middle one, Nolan and last but not least, the youngest, Rory. They are close knit and always have each others back, which is good as they tend to get themselves in trouble. They all share something too. They all need to feed on human blood, else they begin to rot and become zombie monsters. That’s a new one for me.

Then there’s big bad Daddy, Ronan. He’s your worst dream come true and would win worst father awards hands down. His idea of a good time is rape, torture, and killing, as ugly as he can make it. His sons often suffered at his hands.

When I first met Morgan, I was thinking, ‘what’s a nice girl like you….’ Then I discover she’s a necromancer and doesn’t even realize it. I understood then why she came to this families attention.

Morgan and Bastian fall in love and horror comes calling. It calls in the form of Ronan. Daddy wants Morgan for his own and woe the one that stands between them, even his own son.

As I anguished over the fate of the characters, suffered alongside my favorites and loathed the evil one, I feared the ending. There is no cliffhanger. This is a stand alone book. And what an ending.

I’d recommend you set aside some time before you start reading Crimson Sins. Once you start, it will be very hard to stop. Filled with rich, come to life descriptions from a sewage filled alleyway, to sexual scenes that will leave you breathless and blushing, to scenes of brutality that will make you cringe, this is by far the best book yet by the author. She tells it like it is and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Bravo Madeline.

5 STARS!

Here’s a couple scenes to wet your whistle and they are just from the beginning!

Bastian

Chills ran down his arms and coaxed tendrils of necromancy magic from deep within. The air glittered as the veil between the living and the dead vanished. Ghosts drifted up from the pavement….His control vanished…

Bastian and Morgan

In slow motion her hand lifted. She moved to touch him. Closer still. Air crackled between them. Frozen, he stood there and watched, too caught up in her spell to even breathe. A spark of necromancy magic danced from her finger. Crimson. Just like the streaks in her hair. Just like his father. Necromancer. Death.

~~~~~

Synopsis

Created in Darkness and born of Death, three brothers carry a deadly secret.

One lethal enough to have the dead outnumber the living. Necromancer. Biohazard. Zombie. The abomination inside Bastian Hale demanded constant payment—fresh blood. Without it, he’d rot from the inside out and become little more than a mindless monster. Some called him a living vampire, others considered him contaminated. One woman would call him hers.

Morgan Cross never understood the innate necromancer power running through her veins or why ghosts and zombies sought to ruin her life. When someone’s deadly obsession throws her into Bastian’s arms, their pasts come back to haunt them and she must avoid the one thing she was born to do—claim him as hers.

WARNINGS: violence, gore, mention of rape, torture, images of past abuse, spanking

MY REVIEW

Erotic stories are quickly becoming must reads for me. I had no idea just how good they were. Sure, there are lots of graphic sex scenes and language, but there’s also some great stories to go with the steaminess.

So, it started out with hot, erotic sex right from the first page. Knowing this was a short novella, I was thinking uh-oh. But I pressed on, just knowing the author was going somewhere with this. And she was.

A vampire king and a fae princess are the only characters you’ll be meeting in this book. There’s mention of Jolie’s abusive mother, but you’ll not meet her. She’s mentioned to help you understand why Jolie is so torn in her decision.

She’s destined to kill the vampire king to save her entire species, but it’s not going to be easy to kill the one who pleasures her to the point of insanity.

Nicolas is determined to own Jolie. He’s not nice. He’s cruel and demanding and such a manipulator. He’ll use every power he possesses to control her.

Jolie’s equally determined to maintain control. She’ll not be owned. She’ll not be dominated. She’ll not give in.

The really wild thing is, this war of wills is being played out during a marathon sex duel. Each is determined to make the other give in, to make the other reach that climatic moment first.

If you like explicit sex along with intense internal battles, you’ll love Claiming Ecstasy. I applaud Madeline for being able to make me blush and agonize over this battle of wills. I wanted a happy ending, but I wasn’t sure which ending would make me happy. After finishing the story, I wanted more. I wanted to know where it went from there. Whether the ending was good for Nicolas and Jolie or a disaster.

5 STARS

Blurb

Jolie Dupree is prophesied to bring an end to the deadly war waging between the vampires and the Seelie court. Groomed from birth by a vicious mother, Jolie knows her future can only end in blood–and the murder of the one man she can’t resist. Consumed with guilt, Jolie can’t fight the lure of Nicolas Larkin, the vampire king. She returns to him over and over, every caress of pain and every stroke of pleasure drawing her deeper into the darkness. She must decide between the concrete and the chaos, the light and the dark, for her choice will tip the scales between good and evil, and quite possibly cost Jolie her soul.
