About the Book:

Stylist Elle Olsen lives in fear of someone discovering her secret identity as Princess Eloise. But the men who killed her entire family in a bloody coup have done just that and now they’re coming for her. All Elle wants is to disappear into anonymity again, but the panty-melting billionaire who kidnaps her isn’t about to let that happen.

On the society pages, smoking hot financier Dominick Rasmussen is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. As a secret resistance fighter, his one goal is to get Princess Eloise on the throne and restore the monarchy. The biggest problem? His stubborn and sexy undercover princess has no interest in ever wearing a tiara again. 

Their goals couldn’t be more opposed, but neither Dom nor Elle can deny the attraction bringing them closer together. As the stakes rise and danger increases, they are forced to choose between love and country…

My Review:

Avery Flynn is wonderful writer and storyteller.  I've ready many of her novels/novellas and have yet to be disappointed in any of them.  Her portrayal of sassy heroines and cocky heroes and the paths they stumble down to their happily-ever-afters are wrought with humor, exasperation, some tears, but most of all - love; whether the characters are truly looking for love, or not.  His Undercover Princess  is no exception.  This novel is beautiful, heart-wrenching, and full of surprises.

After her family was dethroned many years ago, Elle swore to never return to a land that allowed such barbaric behavior.  Dropped off in America and forced into hiding, she's been pretty good a keeping her true identity a secret.  When her cover is blown, Elle, a Princess-in-hiding, thinks her captors are the enemy.  She has no intentions of being a captive even if the man who kidnapped her can soak her panties with one smoldering look.  Dom, her hot captor, has other ideas regarding Elle and her rightful place and puts plans in motion that will put her in a position she doesn't desire.

What Elle does desire, though, is Dom.  Knowing that nothing can come of a relationship after she ascends the throne as Queen, the unlikely couple make due with what little time they have -- and realize that's not enough for either of them.  When Elle comes face-to-face with the enemy, decisions have to be made that neither want to make, and their fun ends.  Loyalty to one's country leaves no room for love....

There is so much story packed into the 190 pages of His Undercover Princess.  Be prepared to root for the home team, cry out at the unfairness, and squeal in delight as Elle and Dom butt heads, and occasionally their pelvises, melt in each other's arms, and plan to invade and take over Elle's childhood castle, placing her securely on the throne.  Elle and Dom are wonderfully written characters with realistic qualities, emotions, and interactions.  The chemistry between them is undeniable.  I enjoyed Elle's smart mouth and capability to volley back and forth with Dom without coming across as rude or condescending.  Dom knows he's met his match in Elle, making her acceptance of the throne even harder for him since, as a commoner, there is no place in her life for him.

The story is captivating and entertaining and I was engaged from the very beginning.  I didn't want to put the book down.  Avery Flynn has another masterpiece to add to her book collection and I'm certainly glad I have added His Undercover Princess to mine.

Content Warning:  Hot, smoldering sex awaits you within the pages.  18 & older adults only.

About the Book:

I was born in Bucharest in 1880 in the heart of the vampire population. At eight years old, I was considered a freak of nature since I was already the size of an adult male. Other children my age, and some of my teachers, shunned me.

Being rejected by one’s peers cuts deeply. Then I met my first werewolf and discovered a master vampire was plotting to kill me because of what I am. From that moment, my destiny stole my future aspirations all men grow up wanting.

This is how my destiny begins.

Read an Excerpt:

Chapter One

The Beginning

Bucharest, 1888

The wind howled like an awakening banshee as it swirled and lashed around our snow-covered cottage nestled in the barren trees at the edge of the forest. I was only eight years old, but it was the harshest winter in my one hundred and thirty-odd year memory.

My father had been gone for several days, which wasn’t unusual. Mother had said that he was hunting and should return soon, but the blizzard had set in with a fury, burying the roads, fields, and the forest floor beneath several feet of snow. Wherever he was, he’d be stuck for quite some time.

Snowdrifts lined three sides of our meager cottage and the snowstorm had barely started. The outside layers of snow helped insulate our rugged home. The warmth of the fire felt like the heat of summer, making it almost easy to forget about the freezing howling winds outside.

The hearth fire crackled softly under a black bubbling pot of rabbit stew. Garlic cloves were strung together above a basket of dried yams. We had enough food to last out the week, which made me wonder why my father had chosen to hunt during the worst of the blizzard.

My mother sat in her creaky rocker and was sewing a new coat for me from rabbit hides. Only eight, I was as husky and tall as a young man in his teens. It seemed that I outgrew my clothes about as quickly as she could make new ones.

While she sewed, I sat near the fire and sharpened a long curved dagger my father had given me. He had traded fox hides for the blade, and I expected to soon use it whenever my father returned with his kill.

A slight pause in the winds caused my mother to stop rocking. She leaned slightly forward and cocked her head to the side. The curious frown on her face caught my attention. I set down the whetstone and rose to my feet.

A gentle rapping at the door was faintly noticeable since the winds had quieted, and probably would have gone completely unnoticed had they continued to whistle. But there it was again.

Rap-rap-rap.

A bit bolder, but not overly pronounced or with desperation.

With my dagger gripped in my hand I eased toward the door. Confusion furrowed my mother’s brow. She set her quilt aside and held her scissors to her side, ready to help fend off whatever danger awaited outside that door.

Stepping to the side of the door, I lifted the metal latch that secured the door and eased it against the door panel, careful to be silent.

Rap-rap-rap.

Without fear, I grabbed the large oval handle and yanked open the door. A whoosh of cold air sprang forward, sucking out our much-treasured heat.

On the path directly outside the door, the snow was stained crimson beneath the gray overcast sky. A trail of blood cut farther down the path into the forest. Large heavy snowflakes dropped, steadily trying to erase the blood path. No other tracks were in the snow. No bandits or attackers were visible amongst the snowy tree trunks. The bloody path ended at the door where the body lay.

A desperate weak hand shook, reaching up for me.

“John!” my mother shouted, running across the room to the door.

In terror I stared down into my father’s haunted eyes, barely recognizing him. His face was battered, and his eyes were swollen nearly shut. Blood caked in his graying beard. His useless legs twisted behind him. How far he had crawled or how he had managed to do so with the amount of blood he had lost? It was a mystery then, and remains so even to this day. By every means he should have been dead, long before he got to the door, but his stubborn determination enabled him to ignore his pain and fight to pull himself back home.

I sheathed my dagger and grabbed his nearly frozen hand, heaving him out of the snow and across the threshold. Mother quickly closed and secured the door when we were safely inside.

My father’s cold hand fell from my grip and a huge sigh gushed from his mouth as he lost consciousness.

“Father?” I asked, dropping to my knees in front of him. Blood trickled from his nose. I glanced toward Momma. “What happened to him?”

“Get him to the bed,” she said, wiping away tears.

Placing my hands beneath his underarms, I lifted, pulling him up enough to wrap my arms around his chest until he was upright. His body was cold, but the heat of his leaking wounds stuck to me. I cringed. So much blood. I fought tears. He was dying. Had to be. Nothing lost so much blood and survived.

My father wasn’t a massive man, like he and my mother always insisted I would become. He actually weighed less than I and was several inches shorter. In spite of his stature, he was a crafty fighter, capable of defending himself against men twice his size. Stout and thinly muscular, he had incredible strength and feared no one.

For once, I was proud of my abnormally large size and his lack thereof. I hefted him and walked toward the bed, his boots scraping the wooden floor as I moved. Gurgling sounds rumbled in his throat.

“A bear?” I asked, looking at her. “Was he attacked by a bear?”

Mother brought a pail of lukewarm water and set it by the bed. She shook her head and tore strips of cloth.

I eased my father onto the bed and laid him back. He gasped and groaned in pain, but his eyes never opened.

“Strip off his coat,” she said. “His boots, too.”

I quickly obeyed.

She peeled back his shirt, revealing long gashes across his chest and abdomen. The lacerations were too narrow to be from bear claws, but the cuts were dark and deep. Older white scars were visible. On his chest above his heart was the singed outline of a cross. Two puncture marks near his shoulder were swollen, bruised. Two dark dots.

“What did this?” I asked, pointing at the wound. My fingers almost touched the marks, and she slapped my hand away.

“No!” she gasped.

“What kind of animal could do this?”

Her dark eyes were hollowed from fear. She was paler than normal and seemed more delicate.

“Mother, please tell me what did this to Father?”

She took a damp cloth and washed blood from his nose and beard. With another cloth, she washed his forehead. Tears heated her eyes. She spat out a word with complete contempt as she whispered, “Vampire.”

My chest tightened. Anger rippled inside me. “A vampire attacked him while he was hunting game?”

“No,” she replied. “He was hunting the vampire.”

“Why?”

“It is his calling, his duty. Magistrates and governors seek him out to kill vampires. They pay in gold and silver coins.”

I stared at my father’s frail body. His chest rose and fell with shallow breaths. “Why has he never told me?”

“To protect you.”

“From what?”

“Them.”

“Vampires?”

She nodded.

Frowning, I asked, “Why would they wish to harm me? My schoolmates tell tales that are quite scary. I’d never venture into one of their lairs.”

“You’re like your father, but you’re too young. In time you’ll be as fearless as he.”

“Too young for what, Mother?”

“To train to hunt the vampires.”

My eyes widened and fastened upon my father’s incapacitated body. He was barely alive. The possibility that he would die during the night was greater than the chance of him surviving his injuries. I didn’t think I was foolish enough to pursue the fanged demons of the night. Trained or not, hunting vampires was destined to become a short-lived profession.

“His legs are broken,” I said.

She nodded. “I know.”

Tears streamed down my mother’s cheeks. She cried quietly without calling attention to herself. I took a damp cloth and pressed it against one of the lacerations across my father’s stomach. I hoped the pressure might stop the bleeding. Some of the cuts were scabbing, but the two puncture wounds pulsed softly, in rhythm with his faint heartbeat. It was unnerving to witness, as if the injuries were alive, feeding off of his body.

While I held the cloth, her eyes widened. She rushed from the side of the bed and ran to black water pot near the hearth. She was back in seconds.

“What’s wrong?” I asked.

Momma was too frantic for words. She turned my father’s head to the side, pried open his mouth, and black blood oozed out. She took the damp cloth and inserted it into his mouth with her finger. She swirled her cloth-covered finger around the inside of his mouth like one washed a dish. When she pulled out the cloth, it was saturated with more of the dark blood.

“Is he bleeding that badly?” I asked.

She shook her head. “It’s not his blood.”

“What?”

“Under the bed,” she said softly. “Get the box.”

I lowered to my knees and peered under the bed. I grabbed the handle and pulled the heavy suitcase box out, scraping the floor loudly.

I lifted the heavy box and set it on the edge of the bed.

“Open it,” she said.

I did.

Inside of the box were several sharp wooden stakes, a wooden mallet, a silver cross, glass vials filled with powder, and more glass vials filled with clear liquid. My mother took one vial of the liquid, read the label, and popped the cork. She walked around to the other side of the bed.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“The puncture marks have to be purified and cleansed. Or your father will become a vampire.”

“How?”

“The bite somehow causes the victim to turn. Don’t ask me how. Your father would know but—” Her voice broke into sobs.

I wanted to tell her that he was going to be okay, but I couldn’t tell a lie that convincingly. His condition was severe. No way to deny it.

Then the revelation gripped me. I suddenly realized his injuries were intentionally far worse than I had imagined. The vampire who had inflicted the damage upon my father intended for him to die so that he, too, would become a vampire.

“What’s in the vial?” I asked.

“Holy water.”

“That will cure him?”

Mother replied, “If we can fully cleanse the wound, it’s possible that we can save him. But, it’s painful for him to endure. In his weakened condition, the cure might well kill him.”

“And if that should happen?”


“You will have to drive a stake through his heart. I can’t . . . I simply can’t do it.”

Stunned, I looked into her eyes with uncertainty, questioning. She nodded solemnly. I knew the depth of her love for my father prevented her from killing him, even if he were to turn, but I wondered if I was capable. Could I drive a stake through the heart of my father? In the matter of age, I was still a boy, struggling with a problem that only an adult should have to consider. I had to shoulder the responsibility but how?

Book Review: A Biker's Kiss: Vince & Tori by Tracey Cramer-Kelly


About the Book:

Kissing is overrated.

At least in Vince’s mind. The fact that he avoids kissing hasn’t stopped him from getting what he wants from women. But now he’s shared a little too much with his co-worker, Tori—and she’s made it her personal mission to change his opinion. After all, what happens in Sturgis, stays in Sturgis. Or does it?

Kindle File Size: 1359 KB

My Review:

Sturgis, South Dakota is host to one of of the largest motorcycle rallies in the United States.   Thousands of people attend as participants, vendors, or both.  Vince and some of his co-workers are in Sturgis running a booth during the rally.  After revealing a secret concerning his aversion to kissing, Tori, one of Vince's co-workers, tries to reset his views.  

A Biker's Kiss is a short novella that brings together two unlikely characters.  Vince fits the image of a bad boy biker and Tori as a women that doesn't get involved in the biker scene beyond her shift at the booth.  When Vince divulges his reasons behind never kissing a woman, Tori is both horrified and determined to help him move beyond the issues.  

The novel contains limited backstory, really just providing what the reader needs to know about Vince.  The development occurs in the present with Tori.  The situation unfolds respectfully instead of Tori taking Vince's secret and waving it around in public.  I really feel that the relationship building between Vince and Tori is executed well and is written in a believable way.  I enjoyed A Biker's Kiss.

Read an Excerpt:

“So, Blake. You’ve obviously ridden quite a bit. What exactly is it you’re looking to get out of these lessons?” “Loaded question, loaded answer.” I hear him murmur as we reach the top of the ridge and the vastness of the desert opens before us. Blake rides up beside me. From his taller horse, he looks down on me. “Didn’t I tell you? I want to figure you out.” “Well, let’s speed this torture along then, huh? What is it you want to know?” He touches his hand to his chin. “Right now?” I nod sharply. His hand drops, his facial muscles falling into hard, serious lines. “How to get you to trust me.” [...] His insightful eyes are clear and deep. In an instant, I know why I dislike him. He sees too much. And it’s not him I distrust. It’s me. I don’t trust myself to be able to keep my secret from him. “I trust you,” I say. “Liar.” “No, really. I trust you…” He raises his eyebrows speculatively. I cover my lie with a smile. “I trust you to be the most difficult fifty bucks an hour I’ll ever make.”

**My 5-Star Review Snippet**

Gone with the Wolf is a really great novel. It combines the normal werewolf and bonded mate scenario with a lot of other not so common themes. Bonded mates in Kristin Miller's novels are called Luminaries and to me that sounds like a great title to have. The author takes a normal, everyday human and transforms her into the object of lust and desire for a local werewolf. We are taken on a journey that invades the life of a hardworking, independent woman who is oblivious to the paranormal world around her. She fights for the business she has worked so hard to build, not allowing a huge corporation to come in and take over. Emelia is strong willed and stands up for herself and doesn't allow anyone to swoop in and treat her like anything less than an equal.

Drake is a fantastically written main character. He fights the attraction to Emelia at first, even going to far as to deny that their first touch was anything out of the ordinary. When that doesn't work, he tries to bring her into his world the best way he know how - which backfires at certain times. He knows that with the Alpha title at stake, the life of the Luminary he finds would be in danger from his brother Silas. Unfortunately, Drake underestimates just how much danger Emelia would be in.

Gone with the Wolf has its extremely tender moments but is full of action, drama, and suspense.

I enjoyed it - and I think you all will, too!

Four Weddings and a Werewolf
Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plans to enter into matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance. The chemistry between them seems fated, but with his playboy attitude, her hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, will passion be enough to keep them together?

**My 5-Star Review Snippet**

Four Weddings and a Werewolf is a fantastic second book in the Seattle Wolf Pack series. There isn't a lot of crossover but, if you've read Book 1, you know we first meet Logan there. We also get a small, important scene featuring Drake and Emelia. I loved the mystery behind the stalker, which is how the author unites Veronica with Logan. I did figure out who the stalker ultimately ended up being but until the key scene played out, it was purely speculation on my part.

Veronica has had a hard life, and losing her sister to a pack of wolves didn't exactly make her day. Leah still communicates with Veronica and loves her dearly, but being part of the pack doesn't include her totally human sister, Veronica. This is what fuels her disdain for werewolves. They protect their own, sure - but Veronica gets left out in the cold with no other family to interact with, and she, with good cause, feels like they've stolen Leah from her. Her interactions with Logan are very entertaining at times, with bantering back and forth that made me laugh out loud.

Logan is a complex wolf. He talks himself into believing that he's not relationship or marriage material. He keeps Veronica at arm's length for as long as possible but he succumbs to the fact that he likes her - A LOT. The chemistry is there between the two from the very start - from that first glance across the room at a wedding - and continues to intensify, even though Veronica tries to convince herself that wolves are out of the question and Logan tries to convince himself that he doesn't do relationships or marriage.

This novel will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish. Be prepared to stay completely engaged in this novel since you won't be able to rip your eyeballs from the pages!
