Sneak Peek of “Earls Just Want to Have Fun” by Shana Galen

Earls Just Want to Have Fun

His heart may be the last thing she ever steals…

Marlowe is a pickpocket, a housebreaker-and a better actress than any professional on the stage. She runs with the Covent Garden Cubs, a gang of thieves living in the slums of London’s Seven Dials. It’s a fierce life, and Marlowe has a hard outer shell. But when she’s alone, she allows herself to think of a time before-a dimly remembered life when she was called Elizabeth.

Maxwell, Lord Dane, is intrigued when his brother, a hired investigator, ropes him into his investigation of the fiercely beautiful hellion. He teaches her to navigate the social morass of the ton, but Marlowe will not escape so easily. Instead, Dane is drawn into her dangerous world, where the student becomes the teacher and love is the greatest risk of all.

Book Review of “Hallowed Circle” By Linda Robertson

lindarobertsonPersephone Alcmedi is a solitary Witch, she belongs to no coven, but she is allowed to vote at the Cleveland Witch’s coven, and she can also attend Witch balls. Persephone has recently been nominated to be High Priestess of Cleveland’s Witch’s Covenstead. Persephone does not know if she wants the position as she is now raising her good friends daughter, Beverly, since her mother was killed. Persephone is also  known as the Lustrata, and she has a connection to a master vampire-wizard named Menessos. The last thing Persephone wants, is the elders to see the connection that she has to Menessos, and learn of her deep secrets.

When Persephone arrives at the Covenstead to protest being nominated for High Priestess, she realizes that there is a lot of other Witches who also want to be High Priestess. Persephone is also confronted by a snooty Witch named Hunter Hopewell, who thinks she is better then everyone. In her eyes, she is the only one who should be High Priestess. Persephone immediately changes her decision about not wanting to participate in the Eximium.

While in the waiting room with all the other Witches, Persephone notices that Hunter starts trying to be nice to everyone as she starts to size up her competition. Persephone knows that Hunter is going to be her competition, and she is more then ever determined to knock her out of the Eximium in the first round, or so she thinks. Hunter is going to be the biggest thorn in Persephone’s butt, and Persephone is in for the test like no other. All the Witches are going to be in for a shock when the elders start assigning their tests to the Witches, and there is going to be “surprise tests” that the Witches won’t see coming!

Persephone Alcmedi life is just beginning as the Lustrata where she learns that her power is even stronger then she thought. Persephone is going to need to confront her feelings towards her good friend Johnny, who is a werewolf, and admit that she needs him more that she realizes. Persephone will also need to realize that she is also bonded to Menessos, and that she will always have a bond to him, but that is all, nothing more.

Lives will be lost and secrets will be revealed in Linda Robertson’s novel “Hallowed Circle”. I loved the Eximium competition is this novel, and I love that there were lots of twists and turns in this novel. Fans who love Witch/Magic novels will love Linda Robertson’s novel “Hallowed Circle” I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Sneak Peek of “Viper Game” by Christine Feehan

vipergame

GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she’s desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.
