She never expected to find love or a way back, Awakening, Contemporary, paranormal romance, ghost mystery #MFRWsteam

 


Blurb:

Supernatural meets Rock Star in this exciting new series. More than passion ignites when Kate, rock star/scriptwriter, is trapped in a haunted cabin with the hot Scottish actor playing her hero.

Review:

"Heckart gives fans a contemporary mystery/romance swathed in ethereal veils of secrets, lies, movie scripts, guitar solos, runes, second sight, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and spectral beings. The reader doesn't know where Awakening is guiding them, but the journey is definitely first-class."

Sexy Excerpt:

Kane came up behind me, helped me remove my shirt, and then slid my sweatpants down over my hips. His growing erection pressed into my backside.

      “Nice ink,” he murmured and kissed the half-sleeve scene on my right arm of a wolf head with bright yellow eyes framed by a crescent moon peeking through bare-branched trees and a Celtic knot pattern. Kane brushed his lips over the back of my shoulder, his tongue tracing the feathery-winged faery woman. “And what’s this? A belly ring.”

He stroked around my navel, eliciting pleasant shivers in me, and then tugged on my underwear. I took a deep, shuddering breath and exhaled. Here we go.

His eyes alight with desire, he clasped my hand, helped me into the tub, and climbed in facing me. A thick layer of bubbles floated on top of the water. I tensed and crossed my arms over my naked breasts.

“Relax,” he whispered in a rough voice.

Candlelight flickered over his features, an affectionate light glimmering in his eyes. He stroked my arms, coaxing me to open them. His gentle caresses plus the soothing hot water loosened my muscles and my inhibitions, and I relented. You can do this. When will you ever have another chance to have sex with a hot movie star?

He tugged me onto his lap, and I faced him, straddling his thighs.

“Sorry I didn’t have time for a Brazilian wax.” I waxed my legs but drew a line at my bikini area.

He slipped his hand down between my legs. “Don’t like them. This is much better.”

His caress elicited a tremor. “It’s a wider landing strip,” I murmured.

“And a very fine one it is.” His finger glided over my clit.

I shuddered, my sex quivering. “You must be used to bald eagles.”

       He let out a low chuckle and covered my mouth with his, slipping his finger inside me and sliding his thumb over my clit with skill and confidence. Bursts of pleasure shot though me. This was a man who knew what he wanted and took it.

Shadow-walkers

The five young women of Hecate’s Fury are more than rock stars.

They are Shadow-walkers, chosen to help the supernatural world.

There’s just one problem. No one trained them.

*

Read all five books in this highly rated series:

Awakening, Book 1

Sometimes, the end is really the beginning.

More than passion ignites with Kate, rock star/scriptwriter, is trapped in a haunted cabin with the hot Scottish actor playing her hero.

 *

Awakening the Wolf, Book 2

She doesn’t believe in love.

Two charming, handsome werewolves vie for her attentions. Both are suspects. As the clues lead to a shocking discovery connected to her past, Cyn realizes she is tied to these werewolves by more than her mystical rune. Even if she opens her heart to love, werewolves are monogamous. She is not.

 *

Awakening the Vampire, Book 3

She protects supernaturals. He hunts them.

Witnessing a ritualistic murder thrusts Jessie into the arms of a handsome, mysterious hunter/dhampir and into the very destiny she has tried to avoid. When Jessie and Merrick team up to stop the murderer, neither can deny the rising passion between them. With Death stalking her, surviving won’t be easy.

Awakening the Fae, Book 4

Time can’t separate them, but fate can.

Dina, the wild, strong-willed drummer for Hecate’s Fury and wearer of the Gateway rune, is thrust back in time where she meets a tall, handsome faery king. Beneath all the beauty of the aes sidhe city lurks a dark, menacing danger, and nothing is as it seems. Another covets her Shadow-walker and bruja powers. Past and present collide as both males vie for her. Only the power of love and sacrifice can unite her with her true mate.

Awakening the Dragon, Book 5

She barely escaped his blade once, but not his passion.

Ten years ago, Mickey had a one-night stand with the dragon shifter. His ominous reappearance puzzles her, especially since it coincides with a recent string of unsolved murders in L.A. Whether his return is a coincidence or not, she can’t deny the powerful attraction between them. When the Council accuses Savic of the murders, she will defend him, to the death if necessary.

Book review: Magnar (The Wolves of Clan Sutherland Book 1) by Mary Morgan

Amazon buy link: https://www.amazon.com/Magnar-Wolves-Clan-Sutherland-Book-ebook/dp/B08DCDYT4S/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=magnar&qid=1607478998&sr=8-2


An enjoyable mix of history, magic, and steamy romance.

There was a lot I liked about this book. I loved the two main characters. I liked that Magnar wasn't perfect and struggled with his baser side, his wolf. I really liked that Elspeth was strong and wasn't a damsel in distress. From the first page, I was drawn into the story by the author's skillful way of capturing the historical setting. I loved the mix of history and magic, though I wouldn't really call this a shifter story. The wolf shifting was part of the tale, but this was more of a story about growing love between two very different people. I did enjoy the interactions between these two character, especially how she challenged him. The passionate love scenes set this romance on fire. Oh my.

What I wanted to see more of was conflict between the two characters. It seemed a little too easy for Elspeth to accept Magnar's heathen beliefs and fall in love with him after their arranged marriage. I guess I just wanted to see her struggle with this a little more. Other than that, this was a near-perfect read. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could. I look forward to more from this author. Highly recommended!

Excerpt snippet #12 Dec 7

His eyes widened. It wasn’t disbelief I saw in his blue-gray depths. It was acceptance.

I let out a relieved sigh. He didn’t think I was crazy. Still, my head was spinning. Time travel? Maybe I was dreaming.

What do we have here?” a male asked from behind us.

I turned in King Roan’s arms.

Another man, one just as handsome as the king, entered, his eyes lighting up. “Who is this dark-skinned beauty?”

I had to bite my lip to make sure I wasn’t stuck in a dream.

The sharp sting burned my eyes.

Queridos dioses. I wasn’t dreaming.

Excerpt snippet #11 Nov. 30

Since my bandmates and I had gotten different rune tattoos that had mystical powers while on tour in Romania about seven years ago from an old gypsy witch, tattoos we hadn’t chosen, we’d had to fumble our way through our new shared destiny. We’d only recently learned that we were supposed to be trained. I guessed it was my turn to face my destiny, and listening to my gut seemed to be the best way to cope. Right now, my intuition urged me to be honest.

I looked up at him and whispered, “I-I’m from the future.”

Then, I cringed and braced myself for his reaction, which could be harmful for me, though my gut and my tingling Gateway rune told me time travel wasn’t too far out of the realm of belief for these elven-like beings.

Excerpt snippet #10 Nov. 23

 King Roan narrowed his eyes at me.

A sudden stab of dread pierced my gut like a cold blade. “I-I’m sorry. What year is this?”

The king sneered. “The Christian monks call it the year of our lord 450.”

I gasped, struggling to breathe, and staggered right into the king’s arms. When the commander tried to intervene, the king waved him off and steadied me with his strong embrace. He smelled of sandalwood and sweet woodland herbs, and my body tingled, my knees trembling.

Excerpt snippet #9 Nov. 16

He extracted his hand but not before I noticed his long, graceful, and manly fingers, with sprinkles of blond hair. They spoke of strength.

“You speak our language, outsider. Where are you from? Your skin is dark but lighter than a Moor.”

Something was very wrong.

I furrowed my brow. “I-I’m from Los Angeles.”

He rubbed his chin. “Is that across the sea? Their customs are strange. It would explain your odd clothing and your different dialect.”

“What is this place called?”

He tightened his lips before answering. “Ireland.”

Panic set in, my heart pounding.

“How the hell did I get to Ireland?” I blurted before I could stop myself, though this fantastical elven place didn’t resemble any pictures I’d seen of Ireland, past or present.
