Dekkir, war chief and military leader has found his mate…a human. She is tiny contrasted to his hulking size, but her luscious curves and delectable scent call out to his heart like no other.

Anthropologist Grace was sent by Earth Military Command to act as emissary to Dekkir’s planet. Her mission was clear: make contact and live among the aliens recording details on their culture and world. The job should’ve been simple but like the story of her life sh*t got complicated fast. Now she has a hot alpha alien warrior trying to claim her like some caveman. WTH?

Adding to the chaos of her life, she’s attacked by her own military command. Dekkir is prepared to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Can they survive the coming battles? Or will they die before he can claim his mate?

Dekkir is the first book in the Galaxy Alien Warriors series, it features steamy sex, thrilling battles, and plenty of romance. All books in this rock-hard science fiction series can be read as standalones, there are no cliffhangers, and happily ever afters are guaranteed!

 I smoothed his tangled hair back from his brow, and gentle warmth swelled inside me. Perhaps the bond was not completed, but I could feel it now. And it was time for me to do something about it.
I took off my boots and settled on the bed with him. After a moment, he stirred, and his eyes opened.
He sat up, startled to see me leaning over him, and then stared at my face. “Your eyes,” he murmured. “What have you done?”
“What I knew had to be done. Anything else wouldn’t have been fair to either of us.”
I laid a finger on his lips and then moved forward and put my arms around him. It was like embracing a sun-warmed statue. There was nothing soft about him but his skin and hair. I ran my hands over his muscled back through his tunic, eagerly mapping the contours of his body with my fingertips. He shuddered, his eyes hooding again, but held himself still, as if wary of frightening me off. I reassured him the best way I could think of, leaning up and pressing my lips to his.
He caught me in his arms, pulling me against him hungrily. The kiss ignited suddenly as we clung to each other, intensifying until my lips stung, stealing our breaths until we finally had to lean back from each other just to catch them.
“I… do not wish to hurt you,” he murmured. I could feel his muscles tighten with restrained strength as he held me.
I smiled. “You’ve bled for me twice, Dekkir,” I purred as I ran the back of my hand down his cheek. “I’m not worried about you hurting me in any way I wouldn’t like.”

Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance


Hiding her powers was never a problem for seventeen-year-old Graylee Perez. Not until her diabolical twin sister decided to go on a rampage that could expose them all or get someone hurt.

To add to the aggravation, coven reject Raj McKenna catches Gray performing a complex spell and is convinced they would make a powerful couple. He can delude himself all he wants. Gray has sworn off dating warlocks, especially delinquents who play with fire.

But even Gray’s mysterious death won’t deter Raj, not after Gray is brought back from the great beyond. Only she’s not truly back. Her body’s still six feet under and she’s on borrowed time. There are forces threatening Gray’s existence and a powerful wizard willing to help . . . for a price. Gray doesn’t know who to trust or how long she has left before she vanishes for good, but she’s determined to stick around no matter what the cost.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Entangled was a slow burner for me. It took a while for me to get engrossed in it, and caught up in the characters' lives. Once it took off though, I thoroughly enjoyed it, so I would definitely recommend sticking with it past the first few chapters! Basically, you have a set of twins - one "good" and one "bad". One is good at magic, one isn't. You get the idea. However, when one of them dies and is resurrected in the other twin's body on alternate days, the chaos commences!

There are some great characters in this, and some awful ones too. There were a couple of instances when things just didn't seem to make sense to me, but nothing that detracted from the story too much. On the whole, the author managed to make an interesting story with different character 'voices' and attitudes. 

Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this warmed up to be an exciting and thrilling story. Complete with a short preview of the next book, I definitely recommend it.

#OneClick Finding Perseverance


Ten years ago, Ryleigh O’Donnell let the love of her life go so he could follow his dreams. 

Now, she’s a successful bar owner, a loyal and fierce friend, and someone everyone counts on. 

She has everything she has ever dreamed of, but there is still a void inside her the size of a six-

foot-four professional fighter, Rook Wallace, who she is forced to watch on television.

When she finds her past hiding in the shadows under her fire escape and asking for her help, she knows she should turn him away—protect herself. Her heart doesn’t care what her mind wants, though, and she risks everything by letting him back into her life. She just has to hold on long enough for him to clear his name, and keep his career afloat, then she can go back to business as usual … at least that’s what she tells herself.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.

5/5 (Exceptional)

*I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review*

I absolutely loved this story. I read it in a single day and wished it wouldn’t have had to end. I absolutely adored Rook and Ryleigh’s story. It was a simple, sweet, loving, yet very complicated love story. There were times that were heartbreaking, others I was yelling at the characters, and other times, I was reading in awe of their chemistry.

I was quite shocked with the way that the story played out.  There are twists and turns that you would never think of! Rook really got himself in a hole and it was intriguing watching him get out of it. There was some incredible detail to portray to the reader what was happening, what the scenery looked like, and that little extra to make the story just flow from page to page flawlessly.

These characters are still an absolute blast to read about! Of course Trent had to but in a little bit and take over the book. Ryleigh finds herself and finds her voice. She is a beautiful character that has grown in leaps and bounds since this series started. I can’t wait to see how she further grows as the series continues.

I’m absolutely recommending this book to you! I’m really sad I read the book so fast because the story was just so good. You will be happy you read the story and will be begging the author to write faster! Get the book – what are you waiting for?
