Maya doesn't believe the gods are real, doesn't waste her time with mere mythology. But when gods, demons and hellhounds become the new normal and wielding fire becomes her new skill, she must decide what it is she really believes.

Can Maya accept that normal is something she will never be because it isn't normal to be ...

The Hand of Kali.

A new Paranormal coming of age series delving in the fantasy and magic of Hindu mythology and its plethora of gods, demons, legends & mythology.



I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.

Scent of a Mate (Sassy Mates, #1) by Milly Taiden Review ~Kami

Scent of a Mate (Sassy Mates, #1)Scent of a Mate by Milly Taiden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This is the first Sassy Mates book. I read the third book in the series first, so now I am going back to see how this series began. As with all Milly Taiden's books, this is a sexy, fast-paced read. The characters are funny and very sassy. This is Jordan and Aric's story. 4 stars.

The Space In Between by Jen Minkman Review ~Kami

The Space In BetweenThe Space In Between by Jen Minkman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moira is a Welsh woman in her early twenties with ADHD. I thought this book started really slow. The writing was really good but the pace was loaded with a lot of unnecessary details setting up the story in the first two chapters. I started getting more into the story during the Halloween Wiccan ritual part. Once Moira and her siblings split the veil and travel to a different realm things started getting interesting. At this point the book jumps around a lot. It didn't feel disjointed at all and I thought that it was interesting how the story wove in out to form a whole. The pace sped up a lot and I felt like I was on an exciting roller coaster ride and all I could do was hang on tight. 4 stars

Soulless (Death Warden #1) by Amber Garr review ~Kami



Title: Soulless
Author: Amber Garr
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Expected Release Date: August 23, 2014
Publisher:
Hallowed Ink Press






MY REVIEW: 
 
Nora is a death warden.Theron is a soul hunter. Theron and Nora have a history. He used to be her adviser and her lover. Now he is her enemy. Nora gets her own ward, Jason. I liked the concept of this story a lot. It was really interesting. It is a fast read. The writing is good. The characters are interesting. Things get exciting as good and evil face off. 4 stars


Blurb:
When it comes to death and love…only one is guaranteed.

Four decades ago Nora died. A tragic event for someone so young; however, four decades ago Nora was also given a second chance to walk among the living.

A Death Warden with a mysterious past, her job is to escort the newly expired towards the light, battling with the Soul Hunters who want the freshly dead to help with their own evil purposes buried in the dark.

When Nora’s charges suddenly become targets, she realizes that the hunters are after far more than just souls. A shift in power between good and evil threatens to change everything, risking the lives of the only family Nora has ever known.

Devastated and angry, she’s forced to face the man she once loved - a man who chose darkness over her - in order to find the answers she needs to stop the horror from escalating. Yet, while a lost relationship still haunts her broken heart, a new Warden with secrets of his own will enter the mix and quickly alter everything Nora believed to be true.
Death is unavoidable…but sometimes, so is love.

Mirrored by Dalia Florea review ~Kami


Title: Mirrored
Release Date: 2/17/14
Author: Dalia Florea
Genre: Mystery, Suspense Romance

Blurb:

The body of a teenage girl murdered in the Lincoln Houses is just the beginning…..

Investigative reporter, Nicole Watkins is assigned to the story, but when she comes face to face with homicide detective Andre Moore, she finds herself guarding more than just her sources.

Shaken by the murder of a teenage girl, Detective Andre Moore must put his own emotions aside or risk not only his life, but that of the attractive reporter, but is he strong enough to ignore his growing attraction?

Love is the last thing either is looking for but when the case brings them together, the complications of the murders only seem to intensify the attraction.

MY REVIEW:
Nicole is a reporter living in New York. She is given an assignment to write up a story about a brutal crime. I thought the pacing of this story was a little slow at first. The writing is good and it is full of details. I liked the setting up of the story and I thought it was interesting how the writer fashions the character with all the tiny details of her life and those around her but I wasn't sure where the story was going. There is a lot of symbolism with all the mirrors that Nicole looks into. Nicole has an instant attraction to the detective she interviews. I thought Nicole's character was really na├»ve. The sex scenes didn't read too sexy for me, they were too clinical with him giving her tingles “down there”. I thought the mystery with the reveal could have been stronger.This story was just okay for me. It had a good premise that didn't quite come together for me. 3 stars.

Excerpt:

As I looked around, I noticed that more people were starting to arrive. I also noticed musicians were setting up their equipment. Robert walked over to a microphone that had already been set up. He made a request for everyone to be seated. We all crossed the lawn to our respective seats. Andre held Katie’s hand in one of his and he kept his arm around my waist. We took our seats. As Robert continued speaking about his years of marriage to Monica, I took a moment to observe the people sitting amongst us and caught a very attractive woman at a table across from us gazing directly at Andre. When I looked at him, he seemed to have become aware of her attention as well, but his expression was unreadable, which made me feel very uneasy. While everyone around us raised their glasses to toast Robert and Monica, I sat motionless, so focused on the exchange between Andre and the mystery woman, that I didn’t raise my glass. Finally I snapped out of it, picked up my glass belatedly and raised it along with the others. The band started playing music shortly after Robert finished his speech. Andre and this mystery woman continued to exchange gazes. I stood up without saying anything to him and walked towards the entrance of the house. I heard him calling after me, but I didn’t stop. I needed to get out of there. I didn’t know where I was going, but I just needed to get as far away as possible.

Resist Me (Change Me #1) by A.O. Peart review ~Kami

Resist Me (Change Me #1)

by Resist Me (Change Me, #1)Resist Me by A.O. Peart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ethan is a firefighter living in Portland Oregon.Ethan is quite the player, in the first ten pages he mentions three different on again/off again flings: a nurse, a reporter and a bartender. He then meets a twenty-three-year-old girl, Gloria/Lisbeth, in the FBI witness protection program. I thought this was a fast paced, well written story told in a dual POV style. The story drew me in right away and held my interest. Towards the end things start heating up between Ethan and Lisbeth. Then things start getting scary and exciting as Ethan has to protect Lisbeth from danger. 4 stars

Unexpectedly Mated (Sassy Mates #3) by Milly Taiden Review and giveaway~Kami




Unexpectedly Mated
After years of lusting over Jake Wolfe, Nicole finally got a taste of the dirty-talking bad boy. During the scenting ceremony, he showed her how explosive things can be between them. But Nicole doesn’t do love. She doesn’t even know what love is. So how can she know if a relationship with Jake would be the right path to take?
Jake Wolfe wants Nic more than his next breath. She’s curvy, mouthy and so hot his blood boils just thinking of her. But Nic’s been keeping him at a distance. And Jake is tired of her games. One fateful trip to Sin City and all bets are off. 
After a fun night of drinking, Nic wakes up married to Jake and with a second shifter wanting her for himself. She'll have to finally face the feelings she has or shut them out forever. Their newly formed bond will either allow her to open her heart to love or leave Jake without a mate to call his own.


 
 MY REVIEW: 
 
This is the first Sassy Mates book I've read. I have read two other books by Milly Taiden in her Federal Paranormal Unit series. I need to go back and read the other two Sassy Mates books. I find Milly Taiden's writing style very sexy and entertaining. They are fast paced and hot. I can read a book of hers in a day or even two a day and not get bored. I hope to read all of her books as soon as I get a chance. Jake is a wolf shifter and Nic has it seriously bad for him but she is unsure about her feelings and confused about love. Like all of Milly Taiden's books, this book is hot, hot, hot. 4 stars.

Excerpt
Property of Latin Goddess Press
© Milly Taiden
Maybe Ellie was wrong. What if there were snakes there? A firefly zoomed around her. She watched the tiny bug light up the dark with its yellow glow, zipping and buzzing back and forth in front of her. Some bugs weren’t so scary. From far away.
Her attention shot down to the blanket in the darkness. She’d swear it moved again. Her mind ran on overdrive and she knew the likelihood of her seeing shit that wasn’t even there was big. She took a deep breath and sighed. Her muscles ached from how tense she held herself. The night’s coolness did nothing to stop the heat from the earlier part of the day. Her tank top stuck to her back. She yanked on the front part and blew on her boobs. Thank goodness she was alone or she’d look so stupid doing that.
The others had gone silent. She wondered what they were up to. Where they as freaked out as her? Probably not. She’d bet Emma would live in the damn forest if she got a chance. Leaves crunched from a nearby bush. With an agility she knew she didn’t possess, she got on her knees on the blanket. The noise in the trees increased. Fear froze the blood in her veins. Her heartbeat thundered in her ears along with the sound of the harsh breaths that struggled in and out of her lungs. There was a wild animal near her.
Holy. Shit.
“Oh, hell no!” There was no way she would sit around to find out what the heck was in the bush. She struggled to her feet. Her leg had gone numb so she had to put her weight, which was not just a couple of pounds, on her other leg. Screw the video, she’d return in the morning and remove the camera.
She bent and yanked her bag from the blanket. Something poked at her ass. She turned on her heel to run. Her knees hit a big lump of...fur? Her body did a full flip over the big furry body and she landed on her back with a thud, half on and half off the blanket.

Love's Touch - Then and Now by Lauren Marie Review ~Kami

Love's Touch - Then and NowLove's Touch - Then and Now by Lauren Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Lizzie and Connor are married and then they both die. Kate wakes up in the hospital after a car accident. Kate has had reoccurring dreams where she is living another life as Lizzie. Then Kate meets Bill who has been having the same dreams where he is Connor. I liked the concept of this story and thought true love and past lives was really intriguing, but I thought this story was a little shaky in the beginning. I liked where it was headed but I thought the writing wasn't quite strong enough to get it there. I felt the pacing was off a bit, in some place the story zipped along and then in others it was dragging. Things started heating up towards the middle and I started getting deeper into the story. I thought that the story was moving predictably at first and then an unexpected plot twist, that I thought was interesting, was introduced. A shaky start with a strong middle and end. 4 stars. this book was a gift.

MIna Carter:

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days. So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all… (But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.) The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet,
frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

A woman with a secret… The Federal Paranormal Unit is an elite squad of supernaturals dedicated to solving missing persons cases.

But this case will throw her together with Agent Trent Buchanan. He’s the object of her secret desires, but he’s also a cocky womanizer.
