Caly

Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I’m well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn’t think so. That’s probably a good thing though because I have… And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me… which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I’m just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream… paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I’m not really sure… but it’s not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams… like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?

Blake

I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion’s Order, a pack of… well, not wolves. We’re an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion… a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.

———————————————-

CALYPSO’S HEART is an adult paranormal wolf shifter romance. If you like swoon-worthy males, heroines with feminine strength, an engaging plot, satisfying relationships, steamy love stories, happy ever afters, and getting sucked into a supernatural story, then you’ll want to immerse yourself in the world of species!

You’ll feel right at home if you’re a JR Ward, Nalini Singh, and Dannika Dark fan.

———————————————-

“It has the elements you need – love, pain, heartache, action, revenge, some light comedy, etc. I thought the sex scenes were SPOT ON! Like damn those were great. I really felt immersed in it at times and I felt transported into the story.” ★★★★★

“The descriptions and imagery are on point. It’s easy to picture the characters and scenes. I like the multiple POV shifts to better understand and immerse myself in the character’s mind. The sex scenes are steamy and kept me turning the pages.” ★★★★★

“…if you are looking for a book that punches you in your face, right out the gate, with unrealistic action, tasteless sex scenes, and emotional turmoil, this won’t be it. Go watch Shameless instead. But if you are looking for something that unfolds at a pace that gives you time to decipher the characters, setting, and complexities of the story that is to come, then this is for you…” ★★★★★

“…at one point in the book, a group of characters are all introduced in a short amount of time. While this might not be standard protocol for fictional stories, it’s realistic. Trust that it was done with purposeful intent. Without giving away too much about the story, you get to learn about a pack of males in their environment, doing what males do…” ★★★★★

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Wow! What an interesting and entertaining read! This author really laid her world’s tracks tight like a train’s. She set the story for an amazing series start. Creating a unique and eclectic mix of characters that will have you addicted from the start.

Calypso is just getting by in life as a normal human, even though she is anything but. Going about her day like normal has fate putting her into a dangerous and unusual path she never dreamed about. When a fender bender puts her in the path of a homicidal manic, she doesn’t realize how much that moment will change her life forever.

This book was a very steady and steamy read. With tons of danger to keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are unique in themselves, with amazing abilities and very charismatic personalities. I loved the direction the author is taking with her story and can’t wait to read more from her. She is taking paranormal romance to a whole new level.

Author Bio:

M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart).

On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert.

Blog Tour/ Winds Of Fear

Winds of Fear
Glede Browne Kabongo
(Fearless Series #3)
Publication date: October 23rd 2019
Genres: Adult, Psychological, Psychological Thriller, Thriller

Their dark secret could destroy her family

When Abbie Rambally meets the couple next door for the first time, she’s convinced something isn’t right. Why are the Paynes so fascinated with her oldest son and why do they ask so many probing questions about him? Then Abbie’s loyal and dependable nanny quits without giving notice, and Jenna Payne is only too happy to step in and help out. But Abbie begins to suspect that the Paynes’ choice of neighborhood was no accident.

Though Abbie wants to believe she can trust her neighbors, too many things about the couple don’t add up. So when a stranger in a café calls Jenna by a different name and insists they’ve met before, one thing becomes clear. If Abbie doesn’t uncover what the Paynes are hiding, her family will be in terrible danger.

From an award-winning author comes the latest installment in the “gripping and powerful” Fearless Series. This nail-biting psychological thriller can be read as a stand-alone, and will leave you breathless until the final, jaw-dropping twist.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

What a great read! I wish I would have read them from the beginning, but I was able to follow along the story pretty well. But having the background story would have made it all the better.

Abbie is finally able to live life freely and is working hard towards her goal of getting her PHD. But everything she believed to be true and done comes back to haunt her the dat the Payne family moves in the neighborhood. There is something familiar about them or a bit off, but Abbie cannot put her finger on it. Then Lucas disappears. Now Abbie won’t stop at nothing to bring home her son.

This book was a twisted story, full of deception. You cannot put this book down. The story flowed freely and smoothly. It seems the author was able to build up her story in previous books allowing it to continue on without a break in the story. I was able to keep up with the characters and place them in a timeline.

The characters are strong and very in-depth. Leaves you wondering what is in store for this group next. I believe there is some unfinished business. Maybe a few more secrets.

If you like a good mystery, with strong characters and adrenaline, then this book is perfect for you. But I suggest beginning with book one.

Blog Tour| Jagger

Jagger: Steele Shadows Investigations
Amanda McKinney
Publication date: June 18th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Secrets, lies, deceit… A former Navy SEAL turned homicide detective has met his match in this new *standalone* addition to the number #1 Bestselling Steele Shadows Series…

He found her covered in blood.
She promises she’s innocent.
The question is… Can he trust her?

Feared just as much on the streets as at a crime scene, Homicide Detective Max Jagger has dedicated his life to one thing—speaking for the dead. Everyone and everything else be damned, including his own demons. During one of the most oppressive heat waves to hit the small, southern town of Berry Springs, the former Navy SEAL is called to a scene where a real estate heiress is found standing over a dead body, holding the murder weapon. The local cops immediately dub it a slam-dunk case, but if Jagg has learned anything from his days running special ops, it’s that nothing is as it seems… including this suspect.

Despite her name, Sunny Harper is as beguiling as a fallen angel. Clever, cunning, completely unwilling to cooperate, and, perhaps his least favorite quality—mind-numbingly intoxicating. When evidence from the scene suggests an accomplice, Jagg begins to believe that Sunny is both innocent and in danger, despite the towns’ uproar to lock her up. Torn between his growing feelings for his suspect, he takes Sunny to a secluded lake house where he discovers there’s much more behind those enchanting green eyes… including secrets that could take them both under.

With his career on the line and the clock ticking, Jagg must decide if he can trust Sunny… before they both get burned.

The gun dropped from my face, revealing an emerald gaze just as intense. Her eyes, the color of the budding leaves behind her, sparkling in the morning light. A breeze caught her long, black curls, sending a strand across a pair of succulent lips pressed into a thin line of scrutiny. She wore her trademark black tank top, and—dear Lord and everything holy—based on the erect nipples, no bra. A pair of faded jeans revealed hints of tanned skin behind ripped holes. Strappy sandals covered her feet over cherry-red toenails as electric as the green in her eyes.

My thoughts were suddenly short-circuiting between the snarling guard dogs at her ankles, simply waiting on a command to attack, and the pair of headlights pulling my gaze like a beacon to her chest.

I didn’t like this. I prided myself on never being thrown off my game, and I was. Undoubtedly, one-hundred percent, thrown off my game.

I cleared my throat, squared my shoulders, and said the first thing that came to mind. “You got a permit for that cannon, Miss Harper?”

“You got a warrant to be on my land?”

“Don’t need a warrant just to chat.”

She shoved the nine millimeter into the band of her pants with an ease that verified her comfort level with it.

“Did you call?” She asked, although it wasn’t a question as much as a thinly veiled message that she didn’t like me showing up unannounced.

“Are you busy?”

“Yes.” The corner of her lip curved as she breezed past me, an extra sway of attitude in those hips.

Damn the woman.

Six beady, black eyes laced with warning glared at me as they passed by, falling into step behind the flowing black hair of their master. I waited a beat, watching the captain and her army descend down the pathway, each solider in their designated spots.

Sunny Harper.

A leader of the pack.

An alpha female.

No…

A Queen.

EXCERPT:

The last thing I expected to see when I walked into the kitchen of this Friday night gig was eight vibrators twitching furiously on the tile floor in various states of orgasm-inducing glory.

The giant black dildo with huge, egg-shaped, bulbous balls at the base was winning. A close second, the pink rabbit with the little clit extenders tried to catch up. Next came a two-inch silver bullet, flailing off to the right but occasionally making a giant leap forward. The other four, a ragtag assemblage of peach and brown flesh-colored rubbery plastic, seemed to cluster around the refrigerator as if stoned, lolling about aimlessly after getting their hands on a quarter bag and a limitless supply of nachos.

Ah, yes. The famous vibrator races at a sex toy party. I’d heard about this from one of the other bachelorette party strippers, but I’d never actually seen one.

Check that off my list.

I assumed that would be the biggest surprise tonight as I hovered behind the crowd in my police officer’s costume, ready to “arrest” the bride and handcuff her to my partner Jack, the other stripper, who would then undress and pretend to get teabagged by her.

Yeah—I know. It’s pretty programmed, right? But that’s what the maid of honor always asks for.

And the customer is always right.

Tonight, though, was full of unexpected curves (and I don’t just mean the women). Because when I looked at one of the chicks on all fours, cheering that big old black vibrator to victory, I realized that wasn’t just any woman.

That was Charlotte.

My ex-girlfriend.
