Through paying attention to her work, the loving home she provides and watching her own trials and tribulations, Sneakers learns so much more about life, love and the ways of the world.

Capital Thirst by R.W. Buxton - When predator and prey become one, no one is safe.

Capital Thirstby R.W. Buxton  Paranormal Romance

DC bustles, the light from the city fills the night. But in the dark alleys and backstreets, only slivers of light from a full moon dance. In such an alley, a shadowy figure is hunched over a body. She lifts her head to reveal soulless eyes and fangs dripping with blood as she licks her lips with exultation.

Standing up, she wipes her chin, and tosses her long black hair, then saunters away.

At FBI headquarters, Gerry examines the case files of 18 wealthy men, dead, with few clues, no DNA, and no leads...

When predator and prey become one, no one is safe.

Guest PostWhere Do Your Ideas Come From?by R.W. Buxton  The easy part of the question is the ideas for the books come from my characters. Once I have an idea for a character, I think about what he or she is like and then think about what they would do in different situations. I try them in a short story and if I like them write something longer. I let my characte…

Queen of Dragons: A Sleeping Beauty Retelling (Kingdom of Fairytales Sleeping Beauty Book 1)

This series is set to take place after the original fairy tales end and pick up some years afterward with the next generation. I do suggest reading the prequel to the series which is a set of short stories that covers the end of each fairy tale that the series is going to follow. However, these are not exactly the sweet disney version of the tales. The prequel stories show that these follow up stories will have some harshness to them. These characters are going to suffer if the prequel is any indication.

I really, really like the way this series has started. Queen of Dragons is about Sleeping Beauty's children, specifically her daughter. The world building is excellent and the story line keeps you hooked the whole way through.

This princess is bold, determined, and wants to live life before settling down. The trouble is her parents have decided she needs a husband to help…

Sister of Embers & Echoes by Annie Anderson (Rogue Ethereal, #4) - Demons, murder, and a trip straight to Hell…

Sister of Embers & Echoesby Annie Anderson(Rogue Ethereal, #4) Publication date: January 17th 2020 Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

Demons, murder, and a trip straight to Hell…
I thought I’d get a little time off before the veritable poop hit the fan, but fate — or rather the Fates — have other ideas. The witch who tried to have my sister possessed has escaped, and not only do I find him dead, but I don’t have a clue who he was working with. Or working for…

Now I have a Council Member in human jail, a ragtag bunch of stuffy law-abiders to lead, and a solid inkling that the next person on the chopping block is me.

All of that would be bad enough, but I’ve got bigger problems. Maria isn’t quite right after a demon almost stole her body, and I have a hunch it’s going to require a trip to Hell to get it fixed.

Time to sharpen my athames, vacation time is over.
