Once Upon a Time…No, not once upon a time, because this is no fairy tale, and a thief doesn’t deserve a Happily-Ever-After. – The Raven Thief: A Grimm Retelling by Andi Lawrencovna

#amwriting, #novel, #mswl, #romanticfantasy, #darkfantasy, #paranormalfantasy

Once Upon a Time…No, not once upon a time, because this is no fairy tale, and a thief doesn’t deserve a Happily-Ever-After. This is the story of a woman who thought she could have whatever she wanted without consequences, and in the stealing, lost the one thing she wanted most. It’s the story of the man she left behind, who could never let her go. Only this time, if he fights to stay with her, it could mean more than just their deaths, but that of their world. Orali never thought that Diorlin would agree to work with her again, and even if he did, that he would never feel the way he had in the past for her, or that her feelings wouldn’t have changed either. If only love were enough to fight against the power of The Raven Thief.

“Recommended for lovers of darker fairytales!” – The River Siren: And Other Stories from the Sea Shore by Andi Lawrencovna

amwriting, #novel, #mswl, #romanticfantasy, #darkfantasy, #paranormalfantasy

Not all sirens are made from thingamabobs and dreams of the sand, some live deep beneath the waters where men should fear to tread.

There are stories of myths and legends that you have never heard before.

Stories of creatures born at the beginning of time, seeking life beyond the oceans that birthed it, not knowing what it will find on shore when it emerges to the world of land-walkers, or what those land walkers will do at its emergence.

Stories of a quiet lake, a haven in the middle of the woods, where the darkest of creatures lies in wait for the careless to approach.

Stories from the heart of the Amazon, where the river runs fastest and the tribesman remember the myths their families were built upon, where a siren lives waiting for her song to be heard, waiting to tempt the unwary to her side, never to return them again. She’s been waiting for ages, snaring the undeserving in her spell, or is it that she’s been taking only the worthy, hunting down the wicked with the help of the men she chooses to be her followers?

They’ve all been waiting for their stories to be told, to tempt, to betray…

Are you brave enough to step foot into the waves and see where the shores will take you?

Be warned, not all myths and legends end happily-ever-after.

Some stories will pull you under and never let you go.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN RAMSES AND ELIZABETH IS ELECTRIYING MERYSEKHMET JO PILSWORTH

Merysekhmet: Legend inspired love story with bite (Diaries of the Cwn Annwn: Hellfire Pack) by [Jo Pilsworth, Kaitlyn Bosch]

Ramses Tariq-Omari has walked the world of man for millennia, a lion shifter, a healer and a soldier, he protects those who know nothing of the paranormal world, of the creatures that seek to harm them. Having served the Goddess Sekhmet since the age of ten, it has been lonely existence indeed, but one he has never regretted having chosen.


Elizabeth DeAnglo needed ‘time out’ from hunting paranormal creatures. Taking a job as a PA to a Wall Street seemed like a plan, until she discovered that her new boss was also the wolf-shifter Alpha of the Hellfire Pack. Since the loss of her fiancé and child to a Wendigo attack, she has trained as a paranormal hunter, driven to hunt down the creature responsible. Only then is she certain that she will find peace. Despite living and working with the Hellfire Pack, despite having a family in her fellow paranormal hunters, she is alone, always on the periphery. When she is attacked, again, by unknown Hellhounds, Elizabeth wonders why she is being targeted. She also wonders at the identity of the mystery archer who comes to her aid.

A millennia-old paranormal warrior and a modern day paranormal hunter. Two sides in opposition, yet fighting the same enemy. The attack will change Elizabeth’s life and force her to face some harsh truths. Can she straddle the worlds of the paranormal and those who hunt them? What will happen if she is forced to choose? Can love overcome the deep-seated prejudice which Ramses will face from Elizabeth’s friends?

Merysekhmet is the first paranormal romance novel written by Jo Pilsworth and Kaitlyn Bosch, two friends who met via Facebook role-play. Based on the legend of the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet, it forms part of the Diaries of the Cwn Annwn: Hellfire Pack series. Content is aimed at an 18+ audience and contains scenes of mild violence. Some sexual content.

I’ve read several parts in this series now and have loved them all. There is a really fascinating backstory to these shifters that makes them stand out and each part deepens the mythos. In this one there is a Merysekhmet as the lead hero, Ramses. What he is, is truly unique, and I’ll not spoil any details about that. The chemistry between him and Elizabeth was wonderfully done. Another thing I enjoy is that the romances in these are very natural and unfold alongside of a story. It was also neat to see a few characters I knew from later parts. I read them out of order, but that’s okay because they can all be read alone as each is a complete story. If you are looking for paranormal romance that has more to bite into, you can’t go wrong with any of the books in this series.

A. Nicky Hjort has added to the beautiful, real-life fairytale world that she first presented in “Where Tyndra Turns to Ardnyt”. In this Norn Novella, we are given a glimpse into the true tale of Snow White, much deeper and darker than the Disney movie has presented. I love the colorful imagery and depth of each character, somehow familiar and entirely new. I can’t wait for the next installment!

Wicked, dark and different. Good read FANE BY JO PILSWORTH

Fane: Journal of an Alpha Hellhound: paranormal romance with attitude (Diaries of the Cwn Annwn)

Fane: Journal of an Alpha Hellhound: paranormal romance with attitude (Diaries of the Cwn Annwn) by [Pilsworth, Jo]Fane Anghelescu, Hellhound Alpha. Over-protective and paranoid, according to his sister. But he swore an oath to a Queen of Hell. He swore to serve body and soul if Lamashtu Anzillu would protect his sister, Roxana.


She’s Hell-born Demon. She broke her oath before the blood was dry on the contract. What happens when Fane finds he has been played?

And if that is not enough, other Hellhound Packs are trying to kill him and annihilate his Pack. And the return of a mystery Pack female, Stefania. Life ain’t simple, that’s certain.

Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2018

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase

This is really a complex book with lots of interesting angles and action. Fane is a hellhound bound in servitude to a Queen of the underworld when she chooses him to be alpha of her hellhound pack. You start off wondering how your going to like this guy because he pretty much detests humans and uses them to feed his queen, but the story didn’t detail that much. He’s very protective of his pack and especially his sister, Roxana. So when a female hellhound name Stephania who is a hunter shows up out of the blue and claims to be a member of his pack, Fane’s suspicious. She claims the queen sent her on a special mission which is where she’s been for the last 55 years, but Fane is not getting the whole story from her and he doesn’t like it. He sees potential in her though and makes her lead hunter. But Stephania has an uphill battle to fight to be accepted by the pack.
There is something Fane finds intriguing about Stephania, but he doesn’t want to admit it to himself. There is a lot of pull and tug between the two, attraction and mistrust. But you do see the softer side of Fane come out with Stephania who compliments him quite well and she challenges him too.
I liked the romance element very much as well as all the internal and external challenges of the two main characters. I love PNR and this book did not disappoint. I do think the book could stand a good edit, but the few errors definitely did not distract from the story itself.

There was a time before Prince Christophe was born when the worst fate his people had to worry about was war with their troll neighbors or an invasion from elfin forces beyond the woods. But that was before he was born and was cursed.
If he dies, so to do his people.
Such a simple phrase, so oblique, and yet Kit has lived his life in fear of the prophecy, searching every shadow for assassins come to get him.
Until she came and took up arms in his defense.
Warrior and witch. Assassin and priest. She was his teacher and his protector. His friend. The only woman ever to run from him at the end of a ball, and the only woman he ever asked to stay.
But Eli is an outsider in the human world, and trusted only so far, even by the man who desires more from her than her skill with a blade. The longer she remains with him, the more she falls for her prince in a world where her prince’s life is the fate of his lands.
As the time of the prophecy draws near, Eli and Kit will face more than dwarves and shadows to find solace with each other and salvation for their people.
Sometimes the one most suited to protect you is the one who holds the sharpest blade.
And there is no sharper sword than:
The Captain.

Loved this book!

Read a review about the book that gave away that the book covers several hundred years. As you can imagine, one might be put out to read it, especially considering how could Lawrencovna really cover so much so quickly. The book was awesome! The way she covered the years made sense to me, especially knowing from book one that both Eli and Kit live VERY long lives. To me, though, wading through the war and the glimpses of interactions between Kit and Eli during that time were just so worth the ending. And, we get a bit of her history before Kit.

Lawrencovna’s writing style is engaging and, on a personal not,e I like the way she handles her characters. I’ll be acquiring The Prince today! Can’t wait to read it!

Captain captivates!

The story gets better and better, the intrigue was deeper and deeper. Ella and Kit throw sparks with every encounter, through war and strife, yet both remain true to the edicts of their birth. Hurrying on to book three for my happily ever after!

Great Second Installment
This was a great second installment by Andi Lawrencovna. I was lucky to be able to read both books in this series back to back. The only down side is now I have to wait for the next book.
I loved all the process Kit made in this book and Ella is her normal bad ass self.
We see Ella and Kit get closer as they are struggling with their feelings for each other. I hope in the next book they stop resisting their feelings for each other and just go for it.
