 Things are about to heat up…

Brandi Vaughn wishes she could stand out. She’d do anything to get out from behind the shadow of her socialite family—which now includes Dani, her half-sister, recently discovered to be the most powerful vampire known to their kind.
But Brandi is more extraordinary than anyone realizes. The fiery young vamp has a secret elemental power—an inner flame that she must keep under control so as not to reveal herself to the dangerous rogue vampire targeting exceptional talents like hers. But when two desperate followers of the Rogue attempt to kidnap Dani during her wedding ceremony, Brandi lets loose with a pyrotechnic display that doesn’t go unnoticed…
As the vampire nation comes face-to-face with the threat of the Shade army, Brandi is caught in an emotional tug of war between the light and the dark. Torn between the affections of lovers from both factions, she will need to choose who to trust with her heart: a warrior or a rogue.

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and now I live not far from my birth place in Perry Hall, Maryland. I have two teenage daughters and a man that keep me busy when I'm not working full-time as a Certified Medical Coder. I'm an avid reader and I love all genre of romantic fiction from historical to contemporary to paranormal. Sleeping has always been a problem for me so most nights I can be found in the living room reading or writing instead of in bed like the rest of the world. I don't watch television. It's not a conscious decision, it just never occurs to me to turn it on when I have books to read and writing to do. It can actually be a hazard, because I never know what the weather will be until I look outside and I have to rely on my kids and coworkers for local and world news. I love creating the characters you love and love to hate. My characters remind me of people I know and people I wish I had never known.

My Review of NEW RELEASE-- Savage Possession by Belinda Boring

Growing up, Darcy knew that life would be filled with challenges and tough decisions, but none so difficult as the one that would alter her future forever. Given the choice between losing Mason or becoming a vampire, Darcy risks the overwhelming threat of insanity, and places her destiny, her hopes and dreams, in the hands of Devlin. When she survives the conversion and shows how truly strong she is, everyone thinks that the worst is behind them. It’s time to get back to normal—or their new normal—and live happily ever after. 

But danger still lurks within the shadows—both in Woodside Hollow, the supernatural community, and within Darcy. Even though she looks fine, she seems “altered” to those closest to her, something beyond the expected consequences of her dual nature. With reports of dark rituals and blood sacrifices being performed, the Council has their hands filled trying to solve that mystery, leaving Mason scrambling to find out what’s wrong with his mate. 

Will the imbalance warring within Darcy eventually settle, or will her decision to become part vampire-part werewolf lead to a SAVAGE POSSESSION?

My Review
5 Owls
Holy cliffhangers, Batman! Belinda Boring is a very wicked Queen of Swoon, LOL! I have loved the Mystic Wolves series from the beginning, and it only gets better with each new book! When I read Savage Possession I was in the middle of a really bad medical issue and should have been sleeping... NO WAY! I had to see what was going to happen with Darcy. The twists and turns woven by Belinda in this book kept me up all night, and when I finally hit the last page, I freaked. Bels... you are killing me! This whole series is a MUST READ. I'll tell you this, as an author myself, my time is very limited... but I will always MAKE time for a Mystic Wolves book. #truestory
Belinda Boring's books should be on every booklover's bookshelf, they're a staple!

My Review of Las Vegas (The Movie)

Three sixty-something friends take a break from their day-to-day lives to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their last remaining single pal.

My Review

5 Owls
I have to say that this movie was not my first choice to watch as I was stuck in bed. However, after laughing hysterically through more of this movie than a Jeff Dunham concert... it's now definitely a movie I'll gladly watch again. This started studded cast was masterfully assembled and delivered a perfect comedy! Highly recommend!

My Review of Blood Magic by Tee G Ayer

In the DarkWorld the things that go bump in the night are most likely true. And the problem is they are probably not sticking to bumping around in the night. They are everywhere. Your work colleagues, your teachers, even your friends. They’ve been living that way for a long time. And you haven’t noticed becsuse they don’t want you to.
You’re much better off not asking any questions.

Mel Morgan is a Master Teleporter. She can move through the Veil into the otherworldly planes. A handy skill when looking for missing people. It’s a lonely job, but with her gargoyle partner she’s never minded lonely.

Until a certain super-hot Djinn walks into her life. He needs her help to find someone he loves. And Mel can never say no to someone in need. But the road to helping Saleem is fraught with secrets better left uncovered.

Can Mel and Saleem dodge demons and sorcerers long enough to save the ones they love?

My Review

I love me a great paranormal read. I've read vampires, witches, zombies, & fairies. This is the first time I've read about a Teleporter. A Soul Tracker. It's also my first read by Tee G Ayer. 
I enjoyed her writing style very much. The details she wrote helped me picture the world she created and it was just amazing. The story was full of action. I love the steamy story that has begun here for Mel Morgan and a certain hot "cop" who is more than what he seems. This read has variety. Demons, necromancers, witches to name just a few. 
There are otherworldly planes where we traveled to. I say WE because I couldn't help but want to tag along for Mel's adventures. I found it fascinating how she's able to "jump" to all these different places. I am looking forward to reading more in this new series. I'm also now hooked to check out more by Tee G Ayer. She has a new fan. :-). Happy Reading.

Author Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

“Alex,” he called softly with a smooth, seductive tone. At least that is how it rang in my ears.
Slowly gazing up, I jerked back and hit the back part of the sofa when I saw his face far too close to mine. With his knees bent, his hands were planted on either side of the sofa cushion, near my thighs. My heart went into overdrive as my eyes outlined his muscular biceps, up to his shoulder, his dark stubbles, and then…bam! My eyes were deadlocked on his.
Frozen in place, I was mesmerized. His piercing brown eyes sucked me in. I wanted to trace his thick brows with the tips of my fingers, down to the perfect base of his nose, around his high cheekbones, and across his smooth, kissable lips. Swallowing a nervous gulp, feeling little tremors rush through every part of me, I swear, I felt like I was shrinking…dissolving into the sofa…melting into his scent. Though I had expected him to smell like cigarettes being this close to him, he actually smelled nice—minty.
Holding me captive with that look, I knew at that moment he would be my fantasy, the one I would dream about in bed…the bad boy with the tattoos, with that arrogant attitude. The heartbreaker…if only he drove a motorcycle and wore a leather jacket, he would be the complete badass package.

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

As I sit here watching all of the beautiful Mother's Day wishes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram I began pondering what I would say to my mom if she were sitting here next to me? Perhaps, I would ask her is I made her proud? Was I being a good mother? Then I realized, I wouldn't ask her anything. I would look drink in her beautiful face, and tell her one last time just how much I love her and how very lucky I was to have her, even for a short time, as my mother. 
To all of my readers, bloggers, and author friends, Happy Mother's Day! Each and everyone of you are so special and loved <3
Happy Mother's Day, Mom.

Olaf absolutely stole the show and my heart. This movie reminded me why I love writing about magic <3 If you haven't seen it, it's not just for little kids, us big kids love it too <3

My Review of Savior by Jennifer Malone Wright

This book was formerly titled "The Birth of Jaiden" It now contains a bit of new content, but is still the same story. It has also gone through another re-edit.

Alexander Lucas is a man of faith, casino owner and vampire. He should be living the Reno high life of riches and immortality. Instead, he wakes each night despising the blood on his hands and begging for a reason to continue on.

The last beat of his heart took place shortly after losing his family to a gruesome and violent death. One snowy night, the creature who had been stalking him finally took his life, in turn giving him the gift of immortality. Yet, immortality to Alex is not a gift, but rather a curse to live in eternal pain.

Nearly a century of tortured existence leads him to a dumpster in a dark alley where he finds a reason for continuing on. Nestled between bits of debris and rubbish a tiny infant wails for help. He calls for his best friend and guardian angel, Danielle, who explains to him that he has been chosen to raise this baby, for she would someday become a very powerful, natural witch. She tells him it is now his job to protect her from the enemy who wants her so badly, yet also to be her father.

Thinking this angel is out of her mind, Alex refuses many times until Danielle convinces him that the enemy, Malcolm and his wife Levine, cannot obtain the child and that they are, indeed attempting to find her. He must keep her safe, because if evil hands raise her than she will grow to possess the power to annihilate them all.

Luckily, Alex is not alone, he has The Higher Collective to assist in his mission. With the combined powers of the Vampires, Angels, Dark Angels, Witches and Warlocks, The Higher Collective prepares for a battle to protect the child from the evil she may possibly inherit.

My Review

I was blessed by being given this ebook for an honest review.
Savior is an inspirational story about good VS evil. You are who you choose to be.
I loved each and every character. They were portrayed on the pages in such a real manner that I cared about them as real friends.
Alex suffers a devastating loss and still finds faith to be on the side of good. Of coarse he gets angry and isn't someone I'd want to piss off but his heart is in a good place. He is genuine and I LOVED his character for that.
Isabella doesn't think highly of herself but cares for those around her deeply. You'll quickly see she's an amazing young witch who shouldn't be underestimated by anyone. This chick can hold her own!
Deanna was another of my favorites. She has tremendous growth in this story and she made me so proud by the end of this tale.
I think this is an ABSOLUTE MUST READ. This should be on a big screen one day. I highly recommend you download. It's so worth it.
