The Rogue King Abigail Owen (Inferno Rising #1)

Published by: Entangled: Amara Publication date: July 30th 2019 Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Kasia Amon is a master at hiding. Who—and what—she is makes her a mark for the entire supernatural world. Especially dragon shifters. To them, she’s treasure to be taken and claimed. A golden ticket to their highest throne. But she can’t stop bursting into flames, and there’s a sexy dragon shifter in town hunting for her…

As a rogue dragon, Brand Astarot has spent his life in the dark, shunned by his own kind, concealing his true identity. Only his dangerous reputation ensures his survival. Delivering a phoenix to the feared Blood King will bring him one step closer to the revenge he’s waited centuries to take. No way is he letting the feisty beauty get away.

But when Kasia sparks a white-hot need in him that’s impossible to ignore, Brand begins to form a new plan: claim her for himself…and take back his birthright.

Brandy's Book Nook: Writer's On The River book signing event

Writer's On The River Peoria, IL
✩✩✩✩✩

Hi everyone! Last weekend I attended Writer's on the River for the third time and had a blast! This event raises money for Thistle Farms which helps women. Part of the fundraising is a raffle after the book signing is over. This year's raffle had three or four long tables packed full of donations. There were also three quilts raffled, so make sure to bring a little extra money for a good cause! If you go to the website they say that there is over 80 romance authors, but I wanted to let you know that there is more than just romance. Like the author's table pictured below.

This is the table for the book I reviewed last week titled "The True Death". Definitely not romance! This guy is a riot, but like his books is not afraid of some cursing lol.
VIP bags are packed full of goodies and are almost full before you even start, so I recommend bringing an extra bag or a bag on wheels as you will wear your arms out. All of the autho…

Hallow Brothers Series
By
Tricia Andersen
✩✩✩✩✩



This series is about seven brothers who love MMA fighting and are werewolves. The mating bond joins them with their mate after they sleep together, and forever afterwards if someone who interested in them touches them it makes them physically ill which leads to some tricky situations. Also, these werewolves are not nice and cuddly. During the full moon you better not be around, and Caleb may be the most dangerous one. Book one introduces us to Caleb and Meg, and these two have sparks flying and starting fires from the beginning. They fight hard and love hard, and it's a good thing because Meg's ex is out for revenge. You see Caleb is fighting Meg's ex for a chance at the welterweight champion. Meg's ex is a hot mess and dangerous. These two go through hell to be together. There is lots of explicit content, and there is violence. There is a little bit that may be a slight trigger for some.

Book two introduces us to Micah and …

Being possessed by a vampire sucks!
Alana Jones’s world has been completely turned upside-down after being bitten by a vampire’s reflection in a cursed mirror. Now she’s forced to stay in an abandoned Victorian inn on an isolated island off the west coast of Florida, where Alana lives a double life: one as herself and one as a vicious murderer. Over the past year, she has spilt and drunk the blood of sixteen victims. The guilt of their deaths slowly eating away her sanity.

Sixteen dead . . .

However, things become even more complicated when Alana finds Cole, a surfer she felt a connection with the moment they met on the mainland, locked up in the island’s shed. Knowing his death is inevitable, she attempts to distant herself from him, continually reminding herself of the monster residing underneath her skin. Unfortunately, it’s a small island, and the more she interacts with Cole, the more her feelings grow…

The codicils require Jake and Angel to marry or lose their inheritances.
Jake feels like a man with two faces. One he presents to his brothers and the public: the criminal willing to step on anyone for a buck while mercilessly protecting the business.

To Jake, marrying Angel makes sense. With her family’s help, he can fight the new criminal organization that’s moving into his town.
