Sixteen year-old Mira is an Egyptian girl who lives a quiet life in her small village in Lower Egypt 3303 B.C.E. But two visitors from the planet Aut are about to change that. The first “flying metal” that whips across the sky carries a murderous plague by the name of Demen. The second one that follows, brings a bounty-hunter named Weir. Against her father’s wishes, Mira becomes Weir’s accomplice in his mission to apprehend Demen before another woman dies by his hands.

But there’s a problem: Demen is now a powerful Pharaoh in the city of Sharkura. Will apprehending him cost Weir and Mira their lives?

Almay, California, USA, twenty-first century:

Tina Leggs oversees the artifacts and exhibits of the Graham-Arlee museum. She has no idea that the mummy exhibit that’s drawing huge crowds, is the same Demen that her ancestor, Mira, bravely faced centuries ago.

Demen is no longer a powerful Pharaoh. Now, he’s nothing more than a museum exhibit since he was discovered in the Valley of the Kings. But a rare occurrence will give him life once more. And his desire to kill the misery known as woman is as strong as ever.

Enter Q, a second bounty-hunter sent from Aut to capture him. Like Mira, Tina has been cast into the role of ally to this handsome visitor. Amid the destruction Demen is causing, and the risk to their lives to stop him, they realize their deep love for one another.

But, will she leave her family on Earth for the sake of that love?

  
A Body Resurrected by Groovy Lee

A Body ResurrectedEgypt, 3303 B.C.E. Village life was quiet and simple for all, but for a sixteen-year-old girl, the world she knew has just become a thing of awe, wonder, and danger. High above in the sky, two shiny objects flew across the horizon. One would carry a dark and treacherous evil and once would carry the bounty hunter sent to bring him down.

Young Mira discovers Weir, a bounty hunter from a far planet and together they attempt to stop the murderous Demen. Will they succeed or will history repeat itself in the twenty-first century?

The ancient mummy exhibit is drawing in throngs of people to a local museum. Little did Tina know, the Demen mummy was the same vile alien her ancestor, Mira had once faced as a teen. When a freak accident gives the monster life again, Q, another Aut bounty hunter is sent to end him once and for all. Was it Fate that brought Tina together with Q, a “do-over” from ancient history? Is it possible for Tina to fall in love with an alien she will never see again, if he succeeds where Weir failed? Does Q also feel the same? What if their mission fails and Demen runs free to kill over and over?

Groovy Lee’s A BODY RESURRECTED is a scifi romance that clearly knows no limits as two beings from different worlds discover what true love is as they face an unearthly danger that must not survive.

Far from being too “scientific,” this tale is kind of sweet, not overly detailed and filled with a group of characters that are “down-to-Earth” with a little quirkiness, a lot of bravery and family pride. Definitely entertaining, a quick read with a good plot and a nice flow!

Chaste by Jesse Teller

Chaste: A Tale from Perilisc
by Jesse Teller

MY RATING: 2.5 Stars
Publication Date: October 5, 2016
Publisher: Jesse Teller
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Print Length: 245 pages
Available from: Amazon
 
When her devout parents were killed, Cheryl abandoned her destiny as a priestess. Despite the unusual decrees of the new priest, an evil threat preys on the town. Tragic murders have become more frequent when a few traveling warriors stop here for the night. Will they help Cheryl's village or destroy it? She knows better than to trust them. Years of pain and self-loathing have hardened her. To fight back the infectious curse that plagues her home, she must finally face her brutal past.

 
Chaste by Jesse Teller

Chaste: A Tale from PeriliscA very dark and wretched tale that begins in a small town as a young girl turns her back on her destiny after the brutal deaths of her parents. It is a tale of brutality, debauchery and murder as evil comes to town and shreds the very fibers of its soul.

Jesse Teller’s CHASTE is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Gore, human debasement, abuse, and torture are highlighted frequently as part of this extremely dark tale. If you have a problem with rape, you will be disturbed. If not for the wonderful bits and pieces in between, I would have thought the author was attempting to use every vile act and dark scene to demonstrate his ability as a wordsmith as he vividly detailed each and every scene.

One bitter woman will step forward to protect and defend her world, but not until her own brutal self-examination is complete. The storytelling fell short of the previous book as the human weakness was exploited by evil.

I think this book just wasn’t for me, but Jesse Teller is a very strong author who boldly builds the world he has created with strong themes and no apologies.

BLURB

“‘Rookie? She’ll be an expert when I’m done teaching her.” –Dex Moore Smart guys make the best lovers. We’re curious and want to learn as much as possible, especially when it comes to women. Women are the most fascinating and complicated species on the planet, right? So when we meet a lady who piques our interest, it drives our curiosity to soaring heights. We want to study her. Figure her out. Lucky SOB that I am, I’ve built a career on this very thing. As a founding partner of Checkmate Inc., a company that’s grown into a multimillion-dollar business, I’m a quasi-celebrity. It’s a role I never expected, and out of all three Checkmate partners I’ve somehow been labeled the jet-setting playboy. I don’t mind the smokescreen. I can’t commit to a serious relationship while I trot around the globe to oversee our expansion, a venture that could bankrupt Checkmate if I don’t keep my eye on the prize. Besides, the only woman I’d like to study, figure out, and unlock her ear-splitting cry of ecstasy is the one woman I can’t have. And since she’s one of my closest friends and my business partner’s sister, a jet-setting playboy image is the perfect facade to hide my true feelings.

#Cover Reveal The Christmas Wedding Swap by Allyson Charles


THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING SWAP
by Allyson Charles

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Pub Date: 10/10/2017

SOMETIMES YOU GET WHAT YOU NEED . . .

Allison Stuart has always been the odd-woman-out of her family. She wears her jeans a little too tight, colors her hair a little too blonde, and instead of going into medicine and law like her sisters, she runs a diner. She’s also the only single sibling left. And while she won’t change her style, and her meatloaf is to die for, thank you very much, she wouldn’t mind her share of wedded bliss. So she makes an early New Year’s resolution: No more meaningless flings.
Drop-dead sexy Luke Hamilton is everything Allison has sworn off. His only serious relationship has been with his five-star restaurant, Le Cygne Noir, in Chicago. When he’s threatened by a lawsuit, Luke decides to hide out in Pineville, Michigan, until the statute of limitations runs out. The small town is filled with Christmas charm, but he can’t imagine living there. Heating things up with the hottie who owns the local diner would make his exile bearable—if he can convince her to give up her ridiculous resolution . . .




Allyson Charles lives in Northern California. She’s the author of the “Pineville Romance” series, small-town, contemporary romances published by Lyrical Press. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?). One of Allyson’s greatest disappointments is living in a state that doesn’t have any Cracker Barrels in it.

Criminal Attraction by Renea Porter

Criminal Attraction
by Renea Porter


Publication Date: February 22, 2017
Publisher: Renea Porter
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

 
 Criminal Attraction is a STANDALONE /Full Length (200 page) / Dark Romance. Not suitable for those under 18 years old due to descriptive sex scenes and swearing in the book.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

For Rose Hart, Luca Fascinelli is enemy number one. He's the means to an end. She’s been waiting years for this. Everything she has worked for has led up to this point.

Revenge.

Instead of being the one with the gun, Luca is now facing the barrel of one. Rose has questions and Luca may have the answers. But will it be the answers she’s looking for?

Will she be able to pull the trigger? Or has Luca snuck his way into her heart?

 
Criminal Attraction by Renea Porter


Criminal AttractionWho knew that the adage, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” would apply so directly to Rose Hart, trained assassin and woman on an assignment and a mission to avenge her father’s death by killing the mob boss’s son. Eye for an Eye, Life for a Life, Blood for Blood. Rose is going to enjoy this kill, or at least she thought so until she met her target.

Luca is no angel, employed by the mob, an admitted all around bad boy, womanizer and trapped immediately in Rose’s web. That web may prove his downfall and his death, but Rose never counted on discovering the real man beneath the fa├žade or the heart he has kept hidden so well.

Can a relationship be built on lies, even if it has an end date with death? Luca is in love and he shows it, but how long can Rose pretend she hasn’t fallen, too? She has broken all of her rules and has gotten too close, but will that closeness be the key to unlocking the lies she never knew about or will it be the keys to a freedom she has never known? A freedom that includes love and a life filled with joy.

Renae Porter’s CRIMINAL ATTRACTION takes dark romance and suspense and turns those genres on their heels when two anti-heroes are caught up in a web of deceit and their own burning passions that bring out the best in each of them. Ms. Porter has nailed story-telling, world building and bringing life and emotion to her characters and every scene! Definitely a gem to explore!

I received an ARC edition from Renea Porter in exchange for my honest review.
