Harboring a dark and deadly secret of his own, Liam knows that he should stay away from Sera; that he will only bring her more hurt, but he is irresistibly drawn to her and unable to deny himself the pleasure that only she can bring to him. But when their pasts collide with their present, and Liam’s true nature is revealed, will their love for each other be enough, or will they be torn apart forever?

Homecoming – Release Blitz

Title: Homecoming
Series: The Crane Diares Book 1
Author: Apryl Baker
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 11, 2018
New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.
She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn’t so freaky. She’s even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.
Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it’s going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary’s new friends investigate a “haunted” house. 
The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate. 
Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home? And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
 
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
 
Now, I live in small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
 
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Troubled Spirits – Book Review

Cover

Synopsis

Jody has been a conduit for ghosts her entire life. Not only do they come to her for help, but at times she experiences what they feel when they die. This gift or curse comes at a high personal cost—especially when a child is involved. There’s not a man alive who is willing to compete with troubled spirits.

Jared, a wealthy and determined high-powered P.I., has lived without love his entire life. In business if he wants something, he goes after it with a vengeance and is usually not denied. His life experiences have taught him that believing and trusting in others is a dead end street.

But on one magical night Jared meets Jody, and they soon find themselves on the brink of falling in love. But will the spirits surrounding Jody relinquish their hold on her in order for Jared to stake his claim or will their love disappear in an ethereal puff of smoke?

Review

I received an ARC copy in return for an honest review.

My overall thoughts of this book throw me back to the days of watching Ghost whisperer with Jennifer love-Hewitt.
Jody’s gift of seeing spirits with one last message comes across as a gift, however it is beginning to feel more like a curse, this story explores how a small 4 year old persistent spirit girl, called Fiona tests Jody to her limits.

For the first time in a while it was nice to see a female character have two close male friends who have stuck by her and wanted nothing more than friendship, I find this rare in most books.
Another refreshing part was reading how Jody and Jared built their relationship on trust  before they became involved.  Jody came across as a loner where as Jared came across as a possessive sceptic before he fell for Jody’s non profited gift.

I found the beginning of the book very descriptive, looking at the story from different character view points.  Even though this helped build up a profile on each character I do feel this brought  the book down, only because it made the beginning of the book so slow.  It took me until 40% of the way through before I felt I was getting somewhere, and Jared had not even shown up yet.

Overall I did enjoy this book, the beginning was slow but once I got halfway through I was stuck.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I wish there was a second to see how Jody gets on with her new life and gifts.  I can’t say too much because it would ruin the end.  Definitely give it a read.

Book Review

I am back and out of my reading funk/slump.  And what better way to come back with a review than with my FAVOURITE book series!  And yes I am super excited.  If you have followed me for a while I have pretty much reviewed this series every time a new book is released, my first couple reviews I used YouTube so won’t be able to share them.  This is #10 in the Guild Hunter series.  If you love fantasy, paranormal, romance then get into this series.  If you haven’t then you need to, TRUST ME.  Nalini Singh never fails to impress me with this series.

Here are a link to my other reviews:
Archangels storm : book by Nalini Singh  #5
Archangels Legion book review    #7
Archangels Enigma: book review    #8
Archangels Heart Book review    #9

I would say you need to read the series to truly understand the story.  All the characters are the same throughout, but each book focuses on a specific character/characters.  There is a story that runs alongside all of the books, that’s why I said you need to read them all.

I was intrigued in Holly and Venom’s story.  These two have been featured since the beginning Angel’s Blood  #1.  This book is set 4 years after Holly’s dreaded attack and Uram’s takedown.
I was surprised to see that Archangel’s Viper does not follow on from the previous book but it explained what happened in New York while Raphael (Arcahngel of NewYork) and Elena (His consort) were out of the city.   Not going to lie I really really wanted to read about Raphael and Elena again even if it was a small chapter but Venom and Holly did not disappoint.  Maybe we will see Raphael and Elena next.

Holly Chang AKA Sorrow was tainted by Archangel Uram four years ago, when being forced to feed from him.  She is a new unknown vampire whom Venom, Dmitri and the tower are trying to train and learn from.
Holly used to call herself Sorrow after her change, she was damaged, destructive and terrified, haunted with the past and the devastation Uram left behind.  Making her an unknown threat.  But her family and the Tower have brought her out of her depression.
Holly is vampire with deadly Venom, but small “Baby fangs”, with part archangel hidden within, who else was going to teach her new skills other than Venom himself.

I enjoyed learning about her growth and the relationships she developed within the Tower, especially when it comes to Dmitri.  He came across as a father figure.  Holly is a strong woman trying to adjust to having to be under control by the tower, however when it comes to Dmitri he is the only person who can get through to her, exactly like a dad would.  Everyone else she just likes to test their patience.

My favourite quote between Holly and Dmitri:

“You’re asking me to execute you. A father should never have to execute a child under his care.” – Dmitri

Venom another unique vampire changed hundreds of years ago.  He gets the nickname Viper due to the look of his eyes, always covered in dark sunglasses( I wish there was a photo).  He is intimidating just to look at, however Holly just finds him annoying, they have a funny hate/tolerate relationship where Venom loves to wind up Holly with cute nicknames “Hollyberry”, “Kitty”.  And Holly calls him “Viper face”.

On Venom’s return he is collected by Holly, on their ride back to the tower they are ambushed by an SUV with a bounty to retrieve Holly for £5 million.

Nalini is a fantastic author who can really express her characters and their feelings.
I really got that Venom was annoyed, in the 2 years he was gone he expected his team to train Holly, he only had contact with her once a week to see how she was progressing mentally. Even though the tower continued her physical training and testing they held her back.  They both produce deadly Venom which when combined together cancel each other out.  Who else is better than Venom to get her to release her inner snake like abilities.

archangels2bviper2bq22b-2bcopy

With the effects of the Cascade Holly begins to develop new skills which she refuses to tell to Venom, inner voices and the glowing acid green wings growing inside, waiting to be released, her fear is being killed.   As Venom spends more time with Holly protecting her from the bounty, he notices her secrets, and tries to unravel his Kitty.  Is she a potential threat?, what is really happening inside her head?

“What I don’t understand is why anyone would want to kidnap a kitty with baby vampire teeth”. -Venom

The relationship between these two was the best.  Some reviews online have shown other readers were disappointed that when Venom and Holly did get together it was fast and rushed…. I felt the opposite, the book focused on  Holly, the depth in their relationship, Holly learning who/what she is and Uram.
I liked that Nalini Singh referred back to the previous books briefly as a refresh, but it helped follow the story.
My only point was that I wish there was more for these two.  I was left on such a high.  I cannot wait to see what is next.

A new book will be released in 2018.  There appear to be 2 planned books coming in the Guild Hunter series.

The Author


I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. All of my stories held a thread of romance, even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes. Creating unique characters and giving them happy endings is my favorite thing. I even love the voices in my head, so there’s no other job I’d rather be doing. When I got the call in September 2002 that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.
