~*Cover Reveal*~

FT Final

Annie Hughes

Family Tied (Being A Wade #1)


Synopsis –

Dylan Wade – I’ve been in some pretty tense situations in my life but nothing, and I mean nothing, even comes close to this. I imagine this is the same atmosphere you find on a battlefield, the opposing sides waiting for someone to make the first move, as the air grows thick with resentment and hate.

Roman Wade – I didn’t mean for it to get so out of control back then, but I couldn’t reign in my fury. Four years in jail taught me how. Four years with just my thoughts and regrets for company.

Rayleigh Stevens – I knew what it meant for us. I knew it meant living this life. The life we were so desperately trying to get away from. I knew it would be hard, but the deeper we get in, the further the people we once were seem.

People say that family is the most important thing. But what do you do when your family is also your prison? What do you do when your family makes your decisions for you, whether you like them or not? And what do you do when your family forces you into a situation that makes you want to scream?

Dylan, Rayleigh, and Roman are the last people that should be together, but they’re family. And that’s what being a Wade, is all about.

WARNING: profanity, mature scenes, and several “GAH what the hell” moments.

they could never touch. She’s now forced to flee the only home she’s known,


How can someone be so beautiful? The morning sunlight is coming through the

week, and we have fallen into a routine. It is sort of like she has always been

here. Imagining her leaving, gives me an unwanted stone in my stomach.

get married, live a quiet life with his wife and kids in the suburbs. Just like

his parents and their parents before them.

Things don’t work out according to plan – the scaffolding of his life is

crumbling before his eyes. Troy’s plans didn’t include the daughter of a mob

Desert Hunt

(The Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch)


Anna Lowe

Sept 21st – Sept 28th




Rae has

a secret — one she can’t let any wolf pack discover. But with an old enemy hot

on her heels, her options are running out. Taking off on the back of Zack’s

Harley seems like good idea at first, but when she lowers her defenses for the

captivating coyote shifter, she might just be risking it all.

The new she-wolf in town may be strictly off-limits, but Zack just can’t keep

away. When the thrill of the chase gets his blood pumping in more ways than

one, he’s ready to overstep every boundary and break every rule. Destiny says

she’s his — but the pack’s ruling alpha says she belongs to another.

A paranormal romance with adult content / 43,000 words.




for the story & characters of DESERT HUNT, the Prequel

to the Wolves of Twin Moon Ranch



actually wrote Desert Hunt, the prequel to the series, after writing

books 1, 2, and 3! The concept of a prequel was born when I had the opportunity

to participate in my very first boxed set called Masters of the Hunt, and took

that as my theme. It was also the perfect opportunity to show Ty and the pack

at a time when the younger generation (personified by Zack and Ty) was just

starting to push at the limits set by the overly traditional old alpha, old

Tyrone. Since Books 1, 2, and 3 hadn’t yet gone to press when I worked on this

story, I was able to work hints of Rae and Zack into each of those stories. Did

you catch them? Remember that early scene in Desert Blood, when Heather

wistfully watches couples at the dance? If you read closely, you’ll find that

Zack and Rae are two that strike her. These two make many more appearances

throughout the series, so keep your eyes open for them!


Zack has

so much depth, I just love him. He came to me bit by bit: first as a coyote,

then coyote-wolf mix, and finally as Ty’s best friend, the kid from the wrong

side of the tracks. Zack is one of the wounded hero-in-waiting types I love so

much, one of those rare people who is born into difficult circumstances yet overcomes

the odds. He’s a good man who gets his chance to shine despite many trials and

travails. I love how he ultimately wins the recognition of the entire pack and

even the grudging respect of the old alpha – but he would never have dared push

himself that far if it weren’t for Rae.

As a

kid, I was a huge fan of Robin Hood, and I couldn’t resist making Rae a skilled

archer. I love the idea of the balance of nature: how wolves are actually the

friends of their prey because they keep the herds strong. It didn’t take much

tinkering with that idea to fill out the rest of Rae’s character and give her a

mystical role as Mistress of the Hunt. I wanted a strong villain to add into

the mix, so along came Jed, Rae’s old nemesis from her days as a member of

North Ridge pack. Jed and Rae’s back story also helped this prequel tie in to

the rest of the series – specifically to Desert Fate (Book 3), in which Greer,

the evil alpha of North Ridge pack, is finally vanquished for good

by Kyle.




Rae and

Zack riding his Harley to the remote cabin to sit out the storm. I experienced

exactly that kind of desert storm myself (too bad I didn’t have a handsome

shapeshifter to see me through it!), and love how the tension in the air plays

off the tension between the two characters.




I played

with several variations of the hunter/guardian theme before I honed in on Zack

and Rae’s story. In one early version, I had Zack as the hunter and Rae as a

guardian type! Then I had Zack being sent to Nevada to bring Rae safely to Twin

Moon Ranch (and unwittingly, to bring her to be mated to Ty). That eventually

went by the wayside in favor of the hunting scene that appears in the final

version of the story now. It’s funny how a story plays out in your mind in

different variations until exactly the right one develops – and that’s exactly

how the story of Rae, mythical Mistress of the Hunt, came to be!

Excerpt 1:

There was a time when I lived for the pack, when I would do anything to save my people. The white wolves were slowly reducing in number, and now everyone was desperate, struggling to make ends meet before we were wiped into extinction. I was twenty-four years old, and a daughter of the Northern pack alpha. It was my duty to continue my lineage. The only problem was, there were no other unmated alphas around other than my best friend, Sebastian, and the supreme douche, Kade Whitemore.

There was no way in hell I was going to alliance myself with that rat bastard. He was alpha of the Yukon pack, violent, and an overbearing ass who’d rather see me on my back with my legs spread open than being his equal. I’d rather die than be forced to be his mate for all eternity. Why couldn’t I mate with Sebastian? Thinking of fucking him gave me the willies, but anything was better than Kade.

Anger racked my body and I sat there, seething . . . until I felt him. He was coming for me; I could sense him drawing near. The closer we got to the meadow, the more I could smell Kade and his excitement—his lust. Hopefully, he could smell the rage and disgust coming from me.

Wolves mated for life; it was a sacred union. It wasn’t like a human marriage where you could end it by signing a piece of paper. Our unions weren’t something you did lightly. It was also not a decision I was going to let my parents make for me. The only way to escape would be to kill him, and the last thing I wanted to do was start a war between packs. There had to be another way.

Up ahead, in wolf form, Kade kept his stare dialed in on me. He was large—like all alpha males tended to be—but I wasn’t impressed. He could smell my indifference and in return growled low, challenging me. I glared straight at him, not backing down, nor lowering my head. No one would ever make me submit.


You’re disappointed I didn’t sleep with you last night?” Ryker asked.

“Not at all. I enjoy sleeping alone. I have more room.”

“You lie, angel. I could feel your disappointment this morning. All you have to do is tell me you want me and I’ll stay. I have to hear it.”

“You know I want you, Ryker. I’m sure you could figure that out the other night.”

My whole life, I never needed anyone to protect me, not even my parents. And when it came down to it, they didn’t do a very good job when it came to Kade. I knew I could survive on my own. Admitting I needed or even wanted someone was foreign to me. Saying the words out loud was near impossible.

“You showed me, but haven’t told me. Words can be powerful,” he replied.

Rolling my eyes, I got out of bed and threw on some clothes before going downstairs. He was in the kitchen with his back to me, shirt off, wearing only a pair of boxers. Holy fuck. “So if I take off my clothes and lay down on the table, you wouldn’t have sex with me?”

He chuckled. “Nope.”

“You sure?”

“Yep.” He continued on with cooking while I stood there, dumbfounded. I didn’t believe him for a second. His back stiffened when I took off my shirt and pants and climbed up on the table.

“I am so hungry,” I announced, waiting for him to turn around. When he did, he completely ignored me and sat down with his plate of food.

He pointed to the counter. “Your plate’s up there.”

“You’re seriously not going to look at me?”

He studied an invisible spot on the table and placed a piece of bacon in his mouth, crunching it slowly. “You’re not ready for that.”

I waited for him to sneak a peek but he didn’t. “Who’s the stubborn one now?”

He chuckled. “Still you, sweetheart. You have me beat.”

My Thoughts:

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoy L.P. books and her stories. And even though I did enjoy this one, something was missing. I’m not really sure what.

I like the female character. She was strong, smart and sexy. And you have to give Bailey that she is strong and committed to herself and the ones she knew she is responsible for. I did not understand why she is rejecting Ryker. He was oh so hot and sweet. His kindness and protectiveness over her is just amazing.

I liked the suspense and hot scenes described by Ms. Dunbar, but I don’t know why I couldn’t get fully into the story.

Even though the story did not get 5 stars from me I do want to read the next parts to see how everything will turn out.

4 heavenly stars from me. 🙂

Release Boost Blitz: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance by L.B. Dunbar

Title: The Trials of Guinevere DeGrance

Series: Legendary Rock Stars #5

Author: L.B. Dunbar

Genre: Rock Star Romance

 Release Date: September 14, 2015


Don’t judge me. I know you want to, but let’s get some facts straight in my defense.

1. I love Arturo King

2. Arturo left me behind.

3. I was lonely.

4. Lansing was an old friend.

5. I love Arturo King.

Did you burn the fictional damsel in distress that cuddled and kissed her best friend when her fantastical boyfriend disappeared for months? No, you didn’t. You sympathized with her loneliness before you read ahead to make sure the boyfriend was coming back to her. Loneliness is not a crime. It’s cruel to be alone, but not a crime, the last I knew. If it is a crime, I’ll light the match to ignite myself for what I’ve done. Goodness knows, I’m burning up with guilt as it is. In my defense, I want my story to be told before I’m judged too harshly. Arturo King might be a rock legend, but he and I are human. We make mistakes. We made mistakes. Do we need to suffer for all of eternity because of them? I hope not. The jury still seems to be out, though. The greater question is: Is it possible to rekindle our love, when the past could burn us all?

If I ever wondered what the pits of hell felt like, I sensed my current position was similar to being in the fiery depths. The orange-yellow glow danced before me; blinding me to the man I knew was on the other side of the flames. His face was melting, fading in the fumes that surrounded and flowed from the heat. I sensed the wooden walls of the barn structure were crackling and eventually would crumble, but I continued to stand as if frozen. There would be no chance to freeze under the circumstances. If anything, I should be melting slowly to form a puddle on the floor. My skin felt as if it would peel off of me, one droplet of sweat at a time.

The blaze started in an attempt to gain Arturo’s attention. The boy wanted to impress his father: a rock god who stubbornly ignored his son, as he had done over a year ago in this same barn. The Barn. The place of inspiration for Arturo King and his band, The Nights. The place where they performed their magic through music. The place that marked where history was made.

I continued to stare through the flames that separated us. I could see that his lips were moving; calling or shouting out to me, but I couldn’t hear over the roar of the fire. His face was warped in my vision, drifting with the bright light that framed his head filled with dark waves and a jaw covered thicker than before. His brown eyes looked black as they stared back at me. I was trapped. The flames formed a wall between me and my beloved; a man I loved more than anyone. A man who I hurt more than I ever intended. A man who hurt me with his mysterious disappearance and lack of communication.

I didn’t move. Allowing the heat to consume me, I decided this might be my fate. Death by fire was how the adulteress was punished in ancient times. Of course, in romance novels a hero comes to the aid of the persecuted. My mind flashed to another man. He had been a hero to a little girl trapped within a burning building. He had been my hero, as well, when I was kidnapped in a drugged induced haze. He was someone I should not have been thinking of.

I continued to watch the movement of Arturo’s mouth. The roar of the flames was all that I heard. It made music to my ears, drowning out the accusations.

How could I do it? How could I be with another man?

The world seemed to stop as I struggled to give my answers. In contrast, it came alive in an orange glow that spread rapidly along the old wooden floor. My back was now against the warmth of the stones behind me. It was almost like I imagined a brick oven would feel. The ancient fieldstones were absorbing the heat and reflecting it back within the cramped space. Wood crackled above my head. The ripping sound only assured me that my end was eminent. The walls were catching and the barn was doomed to collapse.

Suddenly, I heard my name. The voice that screamed to me was clear, familiar, and not the voice that should have called for me.

“Guinie, turn around and reach up your hand,” he shouted down to me. It was like an angel spoke to me from the heavens. I couldn’t break my gaze on Arturo, but he was gesturing above me. His expression showed he clearly recognized who was over me, who was calling me. His eyes found mine through the flames and he nodded once. Then he looked away and I quickly spun reaching upward blindly. My eyes were dry, boiled orbs within their sockets. The smoke so thick, I confused it for fog. Stretching, my fingers connected with those reaching down for me. One hand was clasped, the opposite wrist encircled, and up I went into the freshness of the cool summer afternoon air. The scent of pine and lake water burned my smoke encrusted nose and I gasped for more oxygen. It was like I’d been drowning. A brief sensation I’d had a year ago in the water of that lake below.

My mind was clouded, but a passing image flashed of Arturo and me spinning in the blue water. He’d kissed me for the first time on that day then rolled us off the boat into the water in distraction. We were playful then. Not today. I heard his voice ringing in my head; his words enflamed with his bitterness.

How could I do it? Didn’t I love him? 

I balanced on hands and knees in the dry earth near the burning barn. My throat was hoarse from gassy fumes and screams. I called out his name one more time, and then the inevitable happened. The wooden structure collapsed.

A lover of fairy tales, myths, legends, and anything with happily ever after, she loves to read and write contemporary romance. Her Legendary Rock Stars series is complete with the final tale: The Trials fo Guinevere DeGrance, but the story began with The Legend of Arturo King.

ARC review: BITTERROOT Part 1 by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine

Bitterroot Part 1 teaser 1


by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine

Small Blurb:

Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the
pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is  a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.

Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a
mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of
werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father–and the family
that’s been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the

world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will. Being
kidnapped on her way home from prom was not she Charlie had in mind.

When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost
sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring  vampire she’s befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that’s been promised the winner.

Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who “wins” Owen.

Only problem: Charlie’s already fallen for him.

Bitterroot is a Young Adult Paranormal with a dose of sibling rivalry… Who will you root for?





My thoughts:

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have to say that this book is totally different than what I have read by Ms Hildenbrand, but nonetheless it made me want to read next part NOW. I can’t wait for the next book.

The story is really interesting from the POV of two sisters who after many years met. One knew about the other and the second didn’t know she has siblings. One raised by both parents, prepared to be the Alpha of the pack. Raised to fulfill her role. Other Raised by eccentric mother, oblivious about the real shifter world.

When I started I was sure that one of the sister will be basically a mean one and I will love just only one of them, but actually I love them both. Why? Because even though they are both different they are actually the same? Even though they fight for the position of the alpha, both of them have different reason to do so.

This short story has drama, rivalry and a bit of romantic suspense, which I really enjoyed.

4,5 heavenly stars! ❤
