I fell in love with Lark She was the outcast of her family and treated horribly by her mother but she pushed through Love that she has the ability to get in people s heads, heck I would LOVE that power to have And she tries so hard to fight what her heart is telling her Sarco, whew what a hottie Their sex scenes together would have melted just about anyone Love his big heart he has and the love for Lark he carries, even though he is already promised to her sister Princess Aryanna I wanted to lov [...]
Tempted by the Storm is amazingly written From the details of the weather changing with Lark s emotions to Leeky Shortz s quips to the extremely hot lovin I loved it There are moments of hilarity and moments that completely shattered me This is a must read that you should definitely skip to the top of your TBR pile I don t want to say Leeky he s a gnome, by the way was my favorite character, but I did love him The first thing he says to Laycee upon meeting her is What the fungus infested toe jam [...]
So contrary to how I was feeling through most of the book, it had a really cute story line, I must give it that.There was a lot in the book that I wasn t sure how I felt about it though Such as I can t stand reading books in the middle of a series and I thought this was the first book and didn t realize until about 20% in that it was the 2nd book, so that already made me weary of reading it, but thankfully it wasn t took bad.Secondly, it felt like maybe because I didn t read the first book but i [...]
Not what I expectedaning not my cup of tea I thought that it was the typical fantasy romance that I like to read Little did I know that there s quite a lot of sexual content in it I mean, I don t mind it here and there but I think this one was way too much for me With that aside, the story line was good The book was well written with a good flow in it A little too predictable The character s development was ok I was hoping for a stronger heroine that could have used her abilities towards somethi [...]
Ok, I can see that other people might enjoy it, but it just so wasn t for me Because I can see that the book really just wasn t for me but not actually that bad in and of itself some of my favs are of a quirky that some people just don t get , I m going to give it a 2 instead of a one I managed to make it only half way thru before the following got the best of me 1 if ever there was a man The start of every chapter It just drove me mad and made me cringe 2 It felt to me like a kids book, and by [...]
I received this book as a R2R from the Lovers of Paranormal GroupStars 3Overall I want to start out by saying the my panties were very um wet by the time i was done reading this book I couldn t believe all the sex the author put in this book, at times i felt like it was a little bit of overkill I was a little confused at times because i felt like you were just thrown into the characters lives with no back story as to who they were and what the hell was going on I did enjoy the romance between La [...]
I received this book in exchange for an honest review LoP Lovers of Paranormal If ever a man was sexual, duty bound and interesting than Sarco, I did not find him in this story I liked the relationship that Lark and Sarco created and the powers they were endowed with The story was interesting and who doesn t love a good Barbarian quest The challenges, adventure, and camaraderie made for a good read Again, the appearance of Leeky Shortz made the story fun and kept me wanting to read Leeky, Leek [...]

4.5 out of 5 stars This novel is the perfect mix of hilarity, adventurousness, family love loyalty, and erotic love scenes With its great cast of characters this novel, and series, is one that I feel every adult that reads it will enjoy at least some aspect of it Read of this review, two teasers and an excerpt on my blog review is a part of a blog tour and will be posted on April 12, 2013 frommetoyouvideophoto 2013 04 blog tour feasted on tempted by stormml
This story have the making of a true Snow White story.Not, we have a witch that the bitch of a mother and a p y whip dad.The cast also includes four horny princess and some other bad creatures.Lark, her sister and the Sunwalker s brothers gave a new meaning to going back to school.Everything took a back seat to her twins, Adam and Sherman, I laugh so hard that tears fall from my eyes The Shermanator was too funny for words.Ladies, this is a sexy, hot, and funny story that will keep you laughing [...]
This was just way too explicit for me Basically three quarters of the entire book were love scenes, and they just went on and on and onI found it really hard to enjoy it when everything was so detailed.Parts were good, and I enjoyed those, which is why it is two stars not one, but I just really struggled.Also, I m not sure if it was intentional, but at the start of almost every chapter, it was If ever_____ and it had it EVERY SINGLE TIME I m not quite sure if this was an intentional part of the [...]
I got this book free through Giveaways I love fantasy books and a good romantic story line isn t a bad thing This book does a great job of moving the story along without having to take away from building the characters You never feel like your in a lull, it is just one great chapter after another I must say the gnomes through me off a little but it did bring is some interesting humor This was a fun book to read I would have liked a little detail on the spell side of the magic but the twists and [...]
Book provided by the author 3.5 starsAnother well written and inventive adventure with an interesting plot The characters were well developed and although it was an enjoyable read it didn t hold my interest as deeply as the first in the series Also I m not sure why but every chapter started with if ever a man and I found it annoying after the first 8 or so chapters and a little distracting I m looking forward to finding out where this series goes next.Book provided by the author through the LoP [...]
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the Author and the Lovers of Paranormal Group on I loved this sequel of The Academy Series What an amazing book Lark and Sarco are such a great couple and I really felt for them.It was great to see, how they just can t live without each other, but accept their destiny and their duties.I still have this awww feeling, because of Sarco going out and trying to do everything that gives him a chance to spend the rest of his life with Lark.
I got this book free as part of Lovers of Paranormal group in for a honest review.The book was good but felt short of my expectations and was draggy at few places Overall, its good for a one time read.The story revolves around young girl called Lark who falls in love with her sister s fiancee Sarco.Sarco in return is attracted to Lark but is duty bound.The love between them grows and Sarco goes on a quest, in which if he succeeds, he could marry Lark.
