Welcome Anna Edwards/Zhanshi

Title: Zhànshì
Series: Sinister Fairytales Collection
Author: Anna Edwards
Genre: Dark Fairytale Retelling
Release Date: May 26, 2020

 

Lia has known she was different since the age of five when her father taught her the skills of her ancestors. His stories of heroic exploits have fueled her fantasies for years. Little did she know that her expertise would be called upon when two cities, two triads, go to war. Will it be a step too far to think she can hide who she really is?
Jaxon has known his career path since he was a little boy when his father promised his only son to the leader of the Yu Shi triad. Jaxon doesn’t mind—it allows him to center his chaotic thoughts and fight his opponents to the death. But when he’s partnered with a mysterious new recruit, he begins to question everything he knows. What is the young boy hiding from him?
Zhanzhi is a modern day retelling of the tale of Mulan for the Sinister Fairytales Collection. Warrior Lia must find her inner strength to defeat a deadly enemy, who’s been left bitter by his quest for absolute power, while at the same time falling in love when she least expects it. Nothing will be as it seems in this dark triad world where a moment’s hesitation can be your downfall.
REVIEW
Wow this has been such a fun series to read. Each author has taken their own spin on a fairy tale. I’m not familiar with Mulan but that was the basis for Zhanzhi. The author did a great job in building her world with intriguing characters and lots of adventure. Great job!

 

 

 
 
 
All I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
I’m an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.
 
I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.

Welcome Lexi Foss/Winter’s Arrow

Title: Winter’s Arrow
Collection: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Lexi C. Foss
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retrelling
Release Date: May 14, 2020
True love is a myth.
A trick.
A way to subdue the heroine and take everything from her.
 
Winter Snow
My “true love” conspired with my stepmother to have me killed and stole my throne.
But they failed.
I’ve been in hiding and refining my vengeance. I’m no longer the damsel they mistook me for once upon a time. I’m coming for them. And my kingdom, too.
Who needs dwarves when you have wolves?
Who needs blades when you have arrows?
 
My name used to be Snow. Now they call me the Winter’s Arrow. Because I’m here to destroy them all.
Kazek Flor
I’m not a prince but an Alpha. And I take what I want, when I want it. So when I found an Omega princess dying in the woods, I took her and made her mine.
I’ll train her. Embolden her. Help her seek the vengeance she is owed. Then, together, we’ll take down Winter Sector and the wicked Queen of Mirrors.
Run fast, little wolves.
Your former princess is about to rise with me by her side.
And we’re thirsting for your blood.

“Help,” I begged. “Need… help.”
Kazek frowned at me. “You’re going into estrus, Snow. I’m planning to help you.”
I shook my head, a whine catching in my throat. He didn’t understand. “No knot.” I couldn’t accept it. This had to be part of Vanessa’s plan, to make an Alpha think he could fuck me fully.
She’d planned to entice Enrique with this spell, to force him to knot me.
That was what she’d meant by having methods to induce the sensations. She’d cast some wicked enchantment that convinced Alphas I could handle them in a rut.
Tears collected in my eyes.
I’d escaped her clutches, only to fall into the hands of someone so much worse—an Alpha driven by need.
She’d won.
After all that… she’d still won.
I crumpled against him, sobbing beneath the crushing emotions of betrayal and defeat. And worse, arousal.
Because I wanted him.

Welcome L.J. Shen/The Hunter

Hunter - RB banner

“This is LJ Shen at her wittiest, steamiest, heart-aching best!”

–Kennedy Ryan, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

The Hunter, an all-new scorching hot contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is available now!

HUNTER_FINAL 4.35.30 PM

Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire.

Hunter

I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…

Sailor

I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

Welcome K.I.Lynn/Abducted

Title: Abducted
Collection: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: K.I. Lynn
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retrelling
Release Date: May 5, 2020
The mafia never lets you go.
 
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.
 
I’m in his territory. His prison.
 
The beast.
 
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.
 
The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
 
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.
 
Not even me.
 
blog_review
I really enjoyed this book but then I am a big fan of mafia romances. This one is a take off of the beauty and the beast fairy tale with a little bit of Romeo and Juliet thrown in. There were a lot of twists and turns and I really liked the main characters. It is my kind of fairy tale! great job!

Prologue –

Somewhere in Chicago…

The chains chafed my wrists, making me wish I were still in my cage. Though it lacked privacy, the cage at least had a bed, and in there I wasn’t restrained with my arms above my head. But I was in Domenico’s domain. The small bedroom-like area was created from a previous office. There was a lamp and a mattress with a blanket, but those were the only creature comforts. The rest of the room retained both the look and smell of the rest of the decaying structure.
With no way to tell time, I wasn’t sure how long I’d been there. All I knew was that I was tired. Being held against my will caused spikes in my adrenaline, and the subsequent crashes left me drained. The small panic attacks had lessened over the past few weeks, but there was an undercurrent of strife, and I feared what would happen if things got out of control.
I stared at the bed, wishing I were on it. All that did was cause the memories of him inside me to come slamming down. The absolute owning of my body by him and him alone. The way he made me come undone.
Feelings that I shouldn’t have with his touch, but I did.
Feelings I drowned in as he consumed me.
I am Domenico’s…for now.
And that was the thought that always sent questions spiraling out of control and a spike of fear to run through me.

I was a caged bird. A pet awaiting a sentence bound to be more grim than any fairy-tale horror.

Blood Always FOR WEB

It was supposed to be business.
Two families, one wedding, zero emotion.

My father’s mafia outfit had saved my life.
I owed them everything.
An arranged marriage was hardly a sacrifice when I would have already been long dead had it not been for them.

I would give up my independence for the Lucciano Family.
I would bind myself to the man whose family tore my life to pieces.
Matteo De Luca was vicious claws sheathed in refinement and class.
He saw my untamed independence as a challenge.
I saw his alluring authority as a threat.

There was a ruthless storm that raged in his oceanic gaze. A majestic tidal wave of temper and domination looking to break on my rocky shores.
He would annihilate me.
Rip open my layers until all my pretty secrets were scattered at his feet.

The worst part? I wanted to experience whatever it was Matteo had to offer, and I hated myself for it.
I wanted to launch myself at him.
To kiss him. To kill him.
To end the debilitating torture of the unknown.

The moment our paths collided, our lives were altered irrevocably.
Taking us from enemies allied by a strategic marriage to something dark and consuming.
Something that tasted like obsession.

I really enjoyed this book. I have read the others in the series and each one is even better than the last. This is an arranged marriage book. The joining of two families that haven’t been on the best of terms for a long time. Matteo is hot as sin and a perfect match for Maria even if she hates to admit it. I think Maria is one of my favorite characters that I’ve read in a long time. She’s tough, but not afraid to show her softer side when needed. It was great seeing the other characters from the previous books as well. This book kept my interest with its wonderful romance, intriguing suspense, and many twists and turns. Check it out!!!

I arrived at my apartment at nine o’clock sharp and found Matteo waiting for me outside my door. I’d had two martinis with dinner, and on top of the champagne, even food hadn’t been enough to counteract the alcohol. I wasn’t about to stumble in front of any trucks, but I was far more affected than I would have preferred.

It was my own fault.

I’d known I would see him. I’d known how important it was to be in possession of all my faculties in his presence, but I’d indulged in the drinks anyway. I had told myself it was my reward for spending a day with my family, but that wasn’t the truth of it. Deep down, in a darkest part of me that I refused to acknowledge, I wanted to drop my defenses.

All my life I’d kept the world at gunpoint.

It was exhausting.

The ease of letting go was shamefully alluring. He was my enemy. Of all people, he was the last person I should entrust with my protection. And yet … that’s exactly what I’d done. Handed myself over in a state of intoxication, unable to fully defend myself.

It was time to see if Matteo De Luca would keep me afloat or use those capable hands to hold me under.

He leaned his muscled frame against the wall in a statement of casual indifference, but his eyes betrayed him. Even with alcohol clouding my vision, I could still see the ruthless storm that raged in his oceanic gaze. A majestic tidal wave of temper and domination looking to break on my rocky shores.

He would annihilate me.

Batter my jagged defenses until he’d smoothed all my hard edges and whittled me away to my foundations.

He pretended to be a simple passing storm in the distance, but I knew the devastation he could wreak. I could feel it not just in my bones but in my core where fissures of lust uncoiled and warmed me from the inside out.

I wanted to launch myself at him.

To kiss him. To kill him.

To end the debilitating torture of the unknown.

I wanted to experience whatever it was Matteo had to offer, and I hated myself for it. Unfortunately for me, my own self-loathing wasn’t enough to keep me from inviting the lion inside my den. Without a word, I unlocked my door, feeling his stealthy presence stalk behind me.

Within a year of self-publishing her first book, Jill Ramsower quit her job as an attorney and dedicated her days to churning out romantic adventures. She likes to think of her books as contemporary romance with a touch of fantasy—at its core, her writing is about the connection between two people. Sometimes that connection involves a little magic…

With Jill’s books, you can count on confident heroines, plenty of steamy tension, and deliciously assertive leading men. There are no guarantees in life, but with her books, you know everything will work out in the end. However, a perfect ending would not be nearly as satisfying without a seemingly insurmountable challenge. Jill loves to add plenty of adversity in her stories, creating unforgettably dynamic characters and sneaky plot twists you will never see coming.

Jill is a Texan, born and raised. She manages the hectic social calendars for her three active children and occasionally spends an evening with her dashing husband. Aside from being an author and a mom, she’s a travel junkie and loves to read when she is not lost in her own stories.

Dante

My life is a tale of betrayal.

I killed so many because they betrayed our cause, because they betrayed the Outfit.

A hypocrite. A liar. A murderer.

That’s what I am.

Five times I betrayed the Outfit. With my blood I made a vow to our cause, swore my life to it, promised to put the Outfit first. Above all else.

Five times I chose a woman over the good of the Outfit. I betrayed my father. My vow. My men.

You reap what you sow.

Would my betrayals destroy everything I swore to protect?

Valentina

On our wedding day I made a vow to stand by Dante’s side.

In good and in bad times.

To love him through it all.

Growing up in the mafia, I knew the challenges in our life would be numerous. I never expected them to tear at the very base of our family, of our existence.
