Scandal Queen 
Anna Bloom 
The much anticipated follow up to Tabloid Princess

Genre: Contemporary Romance 
#ScandalQueen  #ReleaseBlitz #AnnaBloom #RoyalRomance
#BareNakedWords #RomanceReaders #Books

I never meant to fall for a prince… now nothing can be the same again.
It wasn’t meant to be this way… My life with my daughter was safe and protected; perfectly controlled.
Then he came and smashed everything I knew, everything I thought I knew, into pieces.
He broke my heart with his lies and deception, but now he’s under my skin and I can’t go back to the life I once had. All roads lead to him, the king of my heart, the man I would change everything for.
But with royalty comes obligation and expectation. Everyone wants a piece of him.
Inside the palace walls, he swears to keep us safe, yet I know the promise isn’t his to make.
Can he be the person his country needs while also loving us? Can I be the woman who stands proud by his side, or will I always be the daughter of a drug addict who has no place in the higher realms of society?
He says we can make it work, that we can fight tradition and give his people something new.
I wonder what price we will pay to be free to live our dream.
A heart-stopping Rags to Riches tale.


5 Royal Stars
Started Scandal Queen as soon as I finished Tabloid Princess, it starts off where book 1 finishes.

Emotions felt while reading in no particular order..... Worried, swooned, got anxious, smiled lots, angsty, swooned some more, got tearful and more swooning, lots of smiling.

A great conclusion to Leia and Oliver's story, both wonderful characters, both strong and full of love with a caring nature. Little Daisy and Nana make it all that more real.

The romance between Leia and Oliver is heart-warming and you feel the passion through the writing. You do wonder though if they'll ever get a moment when they're not being judged or having a moment ruined by royal life or something from Leia's life being dug up.

I found their story delightful and I loved being absorbed into this royal/fairytale romance. I feel a book hangover coming on, missing Ollie and Leia already!

Review - Tabloid Princess (Tabloid Princess #1) by Anna Bloom

Tabloid Princess

She didn’t believe in fairy tales… until she fell for a prince.

Single mother, Leia Lawrence didn't have a storybook childhood.
Now? Dating… men…? She’d rather stay in her tower of solitude.

Until her path crosses with the heir to the British throne.

He should be the bad boy the press portray him as.
He isn’t.
He should be as arrogant as the rich elites she despises.
He isn’t
He should be easy to walk away from.
Oh, boy, he isn’t.

Oliver is nothing like the man she expects. Smart, funny and caring, he could push through every defence she has in place.
But one passing moment could change everything. It could bring the press to her door and unbury secrets she thinks are long dead.

What will he be willing to do to protect her?
She has nowhere left to turn, except to her prince.
The only thing she can do is wait and see if he’ll choose to protect his country… or her…

My Review

A story so fanciful but so wonderful, I loved it! 

When Leia meets Oliver the future king of Great Britain she doesn't hold back, says exactly what she thinks. In a way she reminds of Bridgette Jones! Leia had an undesirable upbringing and is also a single mum - a perfect match for a prince. 

Prince Oliver.... Let me pick myself off the floor, has he tried saying Princess Tracey, I may come with 3 grown-ish kids and hubby but I can squeeze him in somewhere 🙂. Seriously his swoon-worthy, he might mess up a little here and there but in my opinion all for the right reason. 

This book is no fairytale, well it is sort of, but with Leia's life and work it brings up issues people deal with daily.

I'm diving into book 2 now as I can't wait to see how this will work out, personally I think she would make a caring and compassionate princess, fingers crossed.

Review - Shifted Illusions (Alpha Division Book 5) by C.E. Black

Shifted Illusions (Alpha Division Book 5)

Can three hearts beat as one?

The recent attack on the Alpha Division left Leo a broken shell of the man he once was. Gone are the dimpled smiles and his signature smirk. All that remains is a twisted, scarred mess. If anyone could love such a beast, it would be Hawk. But his best friend still dreams of the "woman who got away." A woman who stars alongside Hawk in Leo's own fantasies. Fantasies too perfect to ever become reality.

Having escaped a life of torment, Beth is finally free. Free to pine for her ex who would never love a half-breed like her and his best friend, a man desperately in need of her love. But when her past rears its ugly head, she must place her life in the hands of the two men she wants most. Now if only she can protect her heart from being torn between them.

Hawk has always harbored a fierce desire for Leo, but he couldn't risk losing his best friend. So, when Beth comes barreling back into his life, he thinks he's been given a second chance. If only he and Beth weren’t in love with the same man... but maybe together, they can heal him.

*This book is a M/M/F menage, bisexual romance and includes explicit scenes and adult language.


Leo, a lion shifter and Henri the Hawk, is it getting hot in here or is it me?

It seems like forever since I visited the Alpha Division, so I was delighted to be reunited with the gang.

Leo has lost confidence since being injured, his living with Hawk. He gets a surprise when a lady asks him to meet for coffee - enter Beth.

Beth is on the run from her abusive pack. She is a resilient woman and has found a way through, but is always watching her back.

I loved being back in this world, I enjoyed the story and the characters and how they were attracted to each other. If I haven't mentioned before they're hot together that first full-on threesome session was a scorcher!

I hope there is some more in this series.

Plus, each book has a happily forever after and there are no cliff-hangers, because there’s nothing worse than a cliff-hanger!

About the Book

by Felicity Heaton

Saddled with a crown he never wanted, King Tegan of the Second Realm of demons is a warrior born for war stuck ruling in a time of peace, bound by the pact that cost his brother his life. Chafed by the ties that have held him shackled to his throne for the last thousand years, Tegan plans an escape from his prison—one stolen night meant to give him a taste of freedom, but one that will lead him to the greatest battle of his life.

A fight to claim the heart of a bewitching fae female who might be his fated mate.
According to many in her clan, and the idiotic incubi who infest the fae town where she lives, Suki puts the suck in succubus. Down on her luck, and in danger of being kicked out of the family she loves, she’s determined to prove her worth by bagging and tagging a powerful male. When she sets eyes on a mysterious, panty-melting demon warrior in a nightclub, things finally seem to be going her way, but his shadowed aura and guardedness warns he won’t be an easy mark.
Seducing him is going to be the fight of her life.
When the battle is done, will the victor have the forever they want, or will this war cost them both everything?


What great characters Suki and Tegan are, they're both strong and passionate.

Tegan is a reluctant king, he would rather be fighting in the fields. So to pass the time he reads <3 - a demon who reads what could be sexier!!! He has plans for his realm but faces opposition at every turn. So basically his bored and frustrated, so decides to escape for a few hours.

Suki, she is Succubi but like Tegan rather reluctant in her post as she doesn't want to kill anyone by draining them.

These two meet up and have a connection (this is eternal mates series!) their relationship is fun and fiery as they are both strongwilled.

Along with the story of these two finding and falling for one another which would have been enough, the author treats us to peak at some of the previous characters.

I have to say I'm intrigued by Ryker, Tegans brother.

Tegan and Suki's story is full of everything you need in a PNR read.

Suki regretted agreeing to come to Underworld tonight. She had regretted it from the moment her sisters had cajoled her into the trip, and she should have made her excuses and left. She wasn’t in the mood for hunting tonight. She was tired, cranky, and absolutely nothing was going her way.
She had managed to steal one kiss from a nice guy who had moderately good looks and had fallen for her charms, but he had tasted like ashes and her fuel gauge was still on the red line. She needed a male who could fill her tank, didn’t want to resort to the sort of feed her sisters seemed intent on getting tonight.
Allura openly fondled the man she had cornered, one who Suki had surmised was a shifter of some variety. Shifters often provided a good feed, but it would come at a high price. Chances were, Allura would kill him once they got busy. Shifters were strong, but not strong enough to handle sex with a succubus.
Suki had lost track of Vidia. The blonde female had been swift to ditch Suki’s sorry ass as soon as she had spotted potential prey. If Suki had to guess, she had spotted her favourite food.
A nymph.
Nymphs were strong enough to handle a succubus if they were old enough, but the ones who were old enough were so damned conceited and egotistical that Suki couldn’t stand them for long enough to get past the conversation stage of a hunt.
Vidia had once said that petting the ego of a nymph was worth it, even though it left a bad taste in her mouth. According to Suki’s clan, doing whatever it took to get a good feed was worth it, regardless of how crappy it made you feel.
Maybe that was the reason they all thought Suki was a complete and utter failure.
She was starving but she still couldn’t bring herself to sleep with a guy who wasn’t strong enough to survive it or stoop to grooming a nymph’s narcissism.
Suki tried to push all the niggling voices out of her head, the thousand jibes and taunts, and harsh words that had come from every corner of the clan, including the mistress who acted as the head of it. They went, but not before they took a few cheap shots at her already fragile mood, cleaving holes in her heart.
Why the hell had she bothered coming out tonight?
She looked at the pleasant man opposite her, one who scored an eight in most departments and who was talking her ear off about a subject she had no interest in and slowly looking more and more as if he was leaning towards ditching her for someone else.
Probably Allura or Vidia. He had asked about them more than once and she had caught the way he had drooled over Allura when the onyx-haired and violet-to-blue-eyed beauty had stopped to check in on her. She couldn’t blame him. As always, Allura had somehow managed to squeeze her incredible body into a black rubber mini and a leather corset that barely contained her ample breasts.
Suki was beginning to feel she should have stayed at home. This night was going to go the same way they always did when her sisters dragged her out. She had started out thinking tonight would be different, as always, and she would finally get things right. A few unfulfilling kisses later she would end up screwing everything up and going home alone, still hungry and in an even worse mood.
The opinion of her sisters would only get worse and her future would only look gloomier, and her mood would only grow darker.
She smiled at the nice man and forced herself to move closer, tried to focus on what he was saying but it really was boring. She didn’t really care what kind of car he drove, or that he owned his apartment rather than rented. None of that impressed her.
She had never been into material things.
At least not to the extent that her sisters were.
Sometimes, her succubus nature got the better of her and shiny cars and fat bank balances easily seduced her. The perils of living on a tiny allowance. When her money was in danger of running out, she fell victim to her nature, a strange sense of desperation gripping her that had her spending most of the days until her next payment walking around frazzled and in her own little world, seeking a male who might buy her something pretty.
A girl could dream about having money, enough to buy whatever she wanted, couldn’t she?
Of course, normally allowing herself to dream like that only made the reality of her situation an even worse nightmare.
Her sisters could afford pretty things, nice clothes and jewellery, and expensive make up, because they preyed on more than the sexual energy of their hosts. They preyed on their bank accounts too, convincing the addled males to buy them things. Suki had tried that once or twice, or maybe a million times, when in the grip of her flat-broke-fever.
She was yet to succeed in convincing a male to buy her something.
Another thing that left a sour taste in her mouth.
Allura did a drive by and sneakily pressed her hand to her forehead, forming an L against it. L for loser.
Her sister meant the male was a loser and to ditch him, but Suki couldn’t help but take it personally. Her entire clan thought she was the loser because she was forever having problems with men and feeding. The charm her mother had been famous for had apparently refused to be inherited by her.
Suki lacked the basic succubus skills so badly that a few of her sisters questioned whether she really was her mother’s daughter and not some stray she had picked up in the fae town or a baby swapped at birth with her real daughter.
Sometimes, Suki wondered that too.
Most of the time, she wondered how she could make her sisters proud of her. She didn’t want them to look down on her. She didn’t want to lose them.
The world would be a bleak and lonely place without her sisters.
She struggled to fit in at the clan, but she would struggle even more to fit into a world without them in it. She belonged at the clan, with her sisters. She had lost her only blood relation, but every female in her clan was her sister, whether they were a daughter or a mother, an aunt or a grandmother. They were all her sisters.
The only family she had.
Before her mother had died, she had told Suki something that remained with her to this day.
One day, she would find her place in this world.
Suki knew what her mother had meant by that. One day, she would prove herself to the clan, would learn to use her powers and bloom just as her mother had always said she would, and she would become part of the family just as she had always wanted.
One day, her sisters would love her just as she loved them.
Solid Eight tossed her a flirty smile, one she returned as she sidled closer to him.
She brushed her arm against his, savouring the way his aura shifted, the colours that flared around him like an aurora changing to reveal the red of passion and arousal. He wanted her. She could bag and tag him, although there was a danger the tagging part might end up being one attached to his toe as they wheeled him into a morgue.
Why did Solid Eight have to be human?
She was sure that underneath his blue jeans and dark checked shirt he had a good body, one that would delight her, and that his desire and passion would provide a modest meal. Humans were off limits as far as she was concerned though. One slip and she would end up killing him, even if they were only kissing at the time. She didn’t have the energy to focus on restraining herself. She was too hungry, needed a man who could get her off the red line through kissing before she dared to do anything saucier with him.
Allura strolled past again, tugging a handsome man along behind her. Suki was surprised her sister didn’t plant another L on her forehead. The clan’s favourite succubus just rolled her eyes instead.
Suki glared at her.
Fine, she was taking too long with the guy, but Solid Eight had her twisted in knots. The temptation to kiss him and see if he could handle giving her a little of his energy was great, but the thought of accidentally killing him was like a bucket of icy water on her libido.
Suki looked around the room again, hunting a stronger target, one who could handle a succubus and might be able to provide her with a good feed. If she could find a powerful man, not a nymph, she could probably fill her tank on kissing or at least kissing and a little fooling around.
An ache bloomed between her thighs and she rubbed them together in her tight black cotton mini, the thought of getting frisky with a man sending her temperature soaring and short-circuiting the part of her brain that constantly chided her, telling her not to go too far in case she accidentally killed her host.
A man flashed into her mind, his gaunt face and dull blue eyes hurling another bucket of ice down her panties, quenching the fire that had just started burning.
It had been more than a month since she had let her hunger get the better of her and had almost killed him, and although it had been a mistake on her part because she had been convinced he had been stronger than he had turned out to be, she still couldn’t shake the guilt.
That night had left a bitter taste in her mouth.
And it had also cemented her clan’s opinion of her.
Any one of her sisters would have gone ahead and given the man a pleasurable exit from this world in order to fill up her tank to the max.
Suki had panicked and teleported him to the emergency room of a London hospital instead.
Cyrena, the clan mistress, had hauled Suki into her office and had talked about the rules, reiterating them for the thousandth time, and had given her a look that left Suki in no doubt that her next mistake was going to be her last.
If she kept failing at everything a succubus was meant to be good at, if she kept tarnishing the hallowed name of their clan, she was going to be kicked out of it. She had been warned enough times that they wouldn’t tolerate any black marks on their highly respected name, and Suki was a massive dark smudge right across the middle of it. If her mother had been anyone else, she would have been tossed out on her ass by now.
In the last month, she had doubled down on her training, more desperate than ever to prove herself worthy of being a member of the family that had raised her. She had hit fae clubs in Scotland and northern England, and even a few in America, practicing her charms on soft targets.
Tonight, she had come to practice on stronger marks.
But judging by the bored look on Solid Eight’s face, she was failing dismally. If she couldn’t charm a human tonight, how was she meant to charm a strong immortal?
A hot bolt of fire shot down her spine, lighting up her insides and cranking up her temperature, and she frowned as she swiftly scanned the room. Someone was looking at her and it wasn’t the human.
She shivered, the delicious heat that curled through her threatening to rip a moan from her lips as she tried to keep it together. Her eyes darted over everyone, her limited senses stretching out around her in an attempt to pinpoint the one who was looking at her.
Because whoever it was, they had somehow fired her up with just a look, one she wasn’t even reciprocating.
Her eyes locked with intense dark pools set in a stunning sculpted face and the room dropped away, Solid Eight’s words lost on her as she fell into those fathomless depths.
Heat suffused every inch of her, fire flaring in her veins as she swallowed hard, bewitched by the spell this newcomer had cast on her with just a single look.

Review Prince of Midnight (Dracula’s Bloodline #1) by Ana Calin


Let me tell you a secret - Dracula had a brother. This is true. They called him Radu the Handsome, but his beauty was deceiving, and it hid a deadly secret...

With high ambitions as a journalist, Juliet Jochs travels to the Carpathians to investigate a mysterious and unnaturally beautiful prince. She suspects that he's a dangerous man, and that this mission may cost her life. But, as the prince's masks begin to peel off, she fears she may lose her sanity. 

Prince Radek's dark powers suck Juliet into a whirl of hypnotic desire--no woman has ever resisted his lures. But something is different about her, special, and he's growing dangerously addicted to her. She must keep her head above the water if she is to save herself, run away and not look back before he consumes her completely. But can she resist opening the last door to his most terrible secret?

My Review

Juliet, a young and hungry journalist gets sent to europe to meet a prince, little does she know that he is more than a normal prince, he has a dark side.

Radek, is the brother of Dracula. He has a very different curse to Dracula, still dangerous though. He is a handsome man, well in daylight!

I liked both characters and the story. Loved the sex scenes and their growing connection.

The pace really picked up near the end and my heart was pounding.

I felt it could have been even better if the characters were developed a smidgen deeper.

I love a paranormal read and this is an enjoyable romp. Diving into book 2 now.

Avenged by an Angel by Felicity Heaton - Book Review - PNR


Duty should mean everything to the Fourth Commander of the Echelon angels. It did before he met her. Now, the only demon he wants to slay is the one that haunts the enchanting mortal huntress, and the temptation to hunt him in Hell, a realm that might kill him, is becoming impossible to resist. 

Held captive by a dragon shifter in Hell, Emelia survived a torment that changed her in ways she hates. She wants her strength back. Her life back. To do that, she needs closure. To get that, she might have to trust not only a man again, but an immortal. 

But when the price of vengeance is the soul of the angel bringing her back to life, will Emelia be willing to pay it? 

*****MY REVIEW *****

Slow burn PNR romance 💜

This read has it all, a romance that holds your attention, danger and angst. The characters, well you have a strong female with issues, a nasty baddie dragon, and then the fourth commander! 

Emelia is strong but has issues getting close to men since being held by the baddie dragon.

The baddie, his horrid and that's hard to say as I love a dragon, the was a brief moment I thought maybe he was redeemable but that was a brief moment.

The fourth commander, well what can I say his a strong angel, determined, caring and considerate along with being smoulderingly sexy.

I have enjoyed all the stories in this series, but this book has taken me back the depth of the characters/journey from the books from the beginning of this series. 

A great read.

Here's the Blurb:

He vowed to never love again, but now his undead heart is beating…

She finds it hard to keep living; is he her salvation?

Since his turning, Caleb lives in his remote country estate with a  skeleton staff. His beloved rose garden occupies his time; a tribute to  his past lost love, along with a sharp reminder that the thorns that  would scratch a human leave no lasting mark on a vampire.

Artist  Vivienne dreams of a garden and a stranger, feeling compelled to sketch  roses over and over. When the name Tetburn Manor whispers on the edge  of waking, she finds the house and gardens that match her dreams and  sets off to sketch them, wondering if the house can lift her constant  melancholia.

Caleb watches Vivienne as she herself blooms while  she paints his garden standing outside of his estate. Should he listen  to his heart and let her in?

Warning: mentions self-harm


Roses and Tetburn Manor are dominating Vivienne's dreams. 

Caleb is a vamp, he's happy with his lot in life/death, until one day his body does something abnormal.

It appears that fate is pulling these two together.
