    This Review is for Amelia Hutchin’s Darkest King!Well she up and did it again didn’t she. Here we see the makings of yet another amazing series to get lost in. Elianna is everything you could want from a badass b$tch who at first comes across as meek, mild and a victim of circumstance.

Here we see the makings of yet another amazing series to get lost in. Elianna is everything you could want from a badass b$tch who at first comes across as meek, mild and a victim of circumstance. However, by the end you are cheering her on and fist pumping the air in triumph. This discarded nobody is far from a victim and more of a master strategist. Evander, oh Evander such a conceited, arrogant alpha hole twat waffle. It comes as quite a shock to his system when the tables are turned and he finds himself, out witted and caught with his pants down, literally. Perhaps he should have spent more time reading Sun Tzu The Art of War and less time postulating and making threats. Then perhaps he may have been ready for what transpired. Is it a soppy, insta love fantasy romance? God no! Thank heavens it isn’t. It’s deliciously dark, a little confronting at times but holy shit is it satisfying. So if you’re more of a burnt caramel sort of girl rather than a sickly sweet tart I recommend it without reservation. I loved both Elianna and Evander and cannot wait to see what Amelia’s maniacal genius has in store for us next.

    I do not typically read Anthologies, preferring to read longer stories, however I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. Each author has written a short, succinct story that gives us a snapshot into the life of the characters and worlds they have created. While many of these stories are part, or will be part, of a larger story line, there are some that are a standalone, full short story.

The authors have clearly stated if these stories are part of an existing story-line or will be developed into a larger world. The worlds these authors have created are in many cases new and I cannot wait to see how they develop.While not all of these stories were my cup of tea, I will admit that as a whole they worked well together. All stories have a similar theme, but each story is written with the different styles of each author. Some of the authors are new to me, however I am sure that once their stories have been read in this Anthology, other readers will do what I will be doing and reading more of their works. As this is a review for the entire Anthology I will not go into each story in detail, however I can say some are sweet, some are hot as hell, and some are a little bit of both. There are a lot of fun times and a bit of humour thrown in. There is definitely something for everyone in this book. If you enjoy reading about the Fae or if this is your first time in the PNR genre, or are looking for something a bit different ,please give it a go I can honestly say you will not be disappointed.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Darkest King by Amelia Hutchins- 3.5 starsGreat start to a new series from Amelia Hutchins. I had some Fighting Destiny vibes from this short story. It was over far too quickly for my liking!

    My review is over The Darkest King from Amelia Hutchins. And just like that a new world has been introduced! Sizzling new characters burn up the pages! Eli and Dominick are an assassin team that fall into what appears to be a trap... but you know Hutchins has tons of curve balls to throw at ya. I can't wait for the rest of this story coming this Fall!

    Once again a great collection of stories by fantastic authors, some new to me, some I love and are (slightly) obsessed with. Well done everyone, you should all be very proud of the stories you’ve all created.The Willow Trail - May Sage 4⭐️New to me author. I love reading the Midnight Coven series books as it introduces me to new authors. I really enjoyed reading this book, Keira is a strong, independent, kicka** chick. She is given the raw stick of being a Fae-touched but she goes on living the Once again a great collection of stories by fantastic authors, some new to me, some I love and are (slightly) obsessed with. Well done everyone, you should all be very proud of the stories you’ve all created.The Willow Trail - May Sage 4⭐️New to me author. I love reading the Midnight Coven series books as it introduces me to new authors. I really enjoyed reading this book, Keira is a strong, independent, kicka** chick. She is given the raw stick of being a Fae-touched but she goes on living the best life she can. The only downfall is that I am invested and addicted to Keira and Cal and I must have more! I’m looking forward to getting the story in the future.May Sage you should be proud of what you have written and I will be going ahead now an st*lking you and reading your books.Darkest King - Amelia Hutchins 5⭐️Sexy, tantalising, steamy, risqué, sensual, passionate, these are just some of the words you can use to describe this story. If you are familiar with Amelia Hutchins’ work then you know she likes to give us Alpha-holes with kicka** woman, and that is exactly what Evander and Elianna are. I love this authors work, she is always producing more enticing, addictive, and alluring stories that keep you on the edge of you seat and characters that you love to hate. I can’t wait to see what is next in store for Evander and Elianna.Elianna is a halfling, she is owned and paid for to assassinate anyone standing in the way of the person paying for her services. When she is paid for to seduce and kill a Lord, and the plan goes wrong Elianna finds herself being taken as a plaything by Evander a King.Fires of Valor - K. Loraine 4.5⭐️Kim you have done it once again. I love your books and this one was a short, steamy, phenomenal story. Joslynn and Valor were exceptional characters, plus I loved seeing Maeve, Rhys and Christian it’s been a while since I’ve read them and it made me a little sentimental.Joss a recently divorced woman takes a holiday to Scotland to explore the Highlands and hopefully have a sexy time with a Highlander. When she is lured to the Fae lands and rescued by a Dragon shifter named Valor, an instant connection is formed. Needing to get back home but wanting to stay with Valor has Joss’ heart breaking in two. I hope to get more for these two in the future, they are perfect together and I really want to see how things go for them, especially Valor.Crowned Torment - Patricia D. Eddy 4⭐️I’ve only read a few books by this author, I’m always saying I need to read more and after reading this story I am once again vowing to do just that. I loved how broken and tortured Adrian is, it makes him real besides the whole Fae part. He has been through hell but yet he is still a very likeable character, he isn’t a angry, resentful, nasty person, he is just broken and scared. Great story with wonderful characters, wish there was more to this story.Kat is sent to Dublin to retrieve a Phoenix artifact for her boss, she never expected it to turn out to be a portal like object to Faery, and she definitely didn’t except it to be slowly poisoning her. Adrian just wants to live in isolation while trying to recover from the centuries of torture, he didn’t need a human almost dying in front of him. Adrian and Kat have an instant connection that help each other heal. They must rush to remove the Phoenix from Kat before it’s too late, but they must return to the Human world, but danger lurks there waiting for themCome What Fae - Andie M. Long 3.5⭐️I’ve only had the pleasure of reading The Midnight Covern books by this author and they have been fantastic, I must really look into the other books especially Shelley and Kim they were great additions to this story. Having a Brownie as a main character is a new and enjoyable change of pace, I applaud you Andie for writing outside the box of the normal Fae species and giving us something new to read. Short, sweet, and very enjoyable!Sick of being single, Zara joins a dating agency in hopes of finding love. After a horrifically terrible date, Zara is told about another match with a guy named Boone who would be perfect for her. Things hit off well for Zara and Boone, but after a drunken night, Zara can’t tell if what Boone showed and told her is real or a dream. Boone needs Zara to believe what he told her as it’s the only way for him to win an election with the council and protect his people.The Summer King’s Mate - Dyan Chick 3⭐️A great addition to the book. I’ve read only one other book by Dyan Chick also from a previous Midnight Coven series. This is a short, quick, romantic read. I did enjoy the characters Rena and Darius, the concept of the story was also good. I did feel that it was lacking something, it just seemed to run way too smoothly, I know that sounds weird considering it’s a novella and is supposed to be a quick hea.Rena is a human girl kidnapped and taken to be a slave in the Summer King’s Palace, she has tried to escape multiple times and has been punished for it. After behaving for a month, Rena is given the opportunity to work as a server at one of the King’s party’s. When the King, Darius takes an interest in Rena, her life as a servant is changed. Three Times Charmed - Corinne O’Flynn 4⭐️Wait, what no it can’t end like that, I need more... this had me feeling all kinds of emotions, happy, sad, ecstatic, hope, devastation. Well done Corinne for giving us this short story, I loved Mila and Ansel and I really hope you plan on writing more for them, as it will be one enjoyable tale.A second chance at love and happiness. Mila is trying to get her life back together, a year has gone by since she lost her husband and a month since her Grandmother. She made a vow to move on with her life before her husband past but wasn’t able till until her Grandmother passed as well. Now taking a leap and going back to their spot to paint and sit and watch the sunset, Mila didn’t think she would meet a mysterious man that showed up out of fog. Ansel was looking for the Stone of Theribas, to help save Fae, what he didn’t expect was to find Mila, standing there when the fog cleared, or the need to touch and be with her.Second Chance Fae - Lisa Manifold 4⭐️I need more, you can’t do me like that. Well done Lisa, well done! This was the perfect mix of angst and romance. The bond between Sen and Calla was sweet, they are perfect for each other, they are the answer to each other’s problems. But I do need more for them, I need to know where they are headed, if the family except Calla, and if they go to the Fae realm. So please, please consider giving them a full book.Being dumped at the alter on your wedding day would have to be the worst experience for anyone, but that is exactly what happened to Calla. So instead of mopping around, she decides to take time for herself and goes to Paris for a holiday, go sightseeing and exploring. When Calla runs into a gorgeous mysterious guy on a tour, they hit it off and an instant attraction is felt. Sen was hiding and buying time in the Human realm avoiding the marriage to one of the three women his father has chosen. He never expected the pretty woman on the same tour would make him wants things he never thought about before.Kiss of Eternity - S. Young 3.5⭐️New to me author. This is why I love reading the Midnight Coven series, I meet new authors. I do have to admit I was a little worried about reading this story not because I didn’t know the Thor but because it was mentioned that her previous book “Kiss of Vengeance” is recommended to be read before hand. I’m not one that likes spoilers and reading a book with characters from a previous book makes me a little anxious. But I must admit I really enjoyed reading this story, and although I now know about Fionn and Rose I still plan on reading the ‘True Immortality Series’ that these characters are part of. Though I have not read KOV I did not have difficulty following the storyline or characters. Well done!Fionn and Rose must find Kiyo a werewolf to hire him to find and protect Niamh, Fionn’s descendant and fellow Fae-Bourne child. But with the Blackwood Coven after Rose, Fionn must do everything in his power to make sure that the Werewolf takes the job, even if he has to make an unbreakable contract and pay double the monthly salary. Her Fae Warrior - Ariel Marie 4⭐️Ariel Marie is still a fairly new author to me, I’ve only read one other of her books with the rest on my tbr list. But her stories that I have read have be interesting, intriguing, exciting, addictive and fantastic. I loved this story of Voron and Arnarra, the warrior and the princess fated mates, it was exceptional. The only downfall is I’ve fallen for these characters, the story, the world and I need more.Voron is the General of the armies of Faery, he has worked hard to prove himself to the King and Queen of Ohlian. Being an ex slave to the dark Fae King, Voron has the knowledge and willpower to defend all enemies that try to take the throne from the King. But only one person can effect him and his struggles to concentrate on the war and that is Princess Arnarra. Menagerie of Oddities - Marina Simcoe 4⭐️I can’t wait for the series that is going to come from this book. What an exceptional read. I’ve only read one other of Marina Simcoe’s books with the intention to read her Demon series, but I am always getting new books added to my tbr list and arcs that I never seem to get a chance, but I will be rectify it soon. I must read her other books cause her write is exquisite. I loved the connection and bond between Ivy and Zeph, the way they instantly reconnected as if a year and kidnapping never happened. Both characters were loveable, caring and wonderful, the trust and faith between them was fated and I’m glad they were able to get a happy ending. Ivy and her friend Fleur are at a carnival when they come across a tent with a sign saying “Madame Tan’s Menagerie of Oddities”, being curious they buy tickets and go inside. At the end of the show Ivy notices another section in the tent only for VIP’s which tickets cost ten thousand dollars. Not having that type of money but being overly curious, Ivy sneaks in only to come face to face with Zeph, the man who broke her heart a year ago. Nuit Rogue - Alice K. Wayne 4⭐️Alice you have done it once again, another fantastic story. A short, sweet, romantic tale. I do hope you have plans to extend this story as I enjoy it and wold like to explore these characters and world some more.From a young age Isla has been promised to marry Arturo, the son of the family that kicked her family out of ruling her kingdom. As a way to keep the lands and titles her family and Arturo’s agreed that when they came of age they would marry and rule together. But as the days get closer to the wedding Isla gets cold feet and runs away in hopes of finding herself. She goes to Nuit Rogue a club where outcasts, runaways can go and work if they have a unique performance. Years later after being at the club performing a spin on her families tranquility dance, Arturo shows up to claim her back. But Isla is still plagued with uncertainty and questions wether she is doing the right thing for her family and herself.

    A Disappointing AnthologyI am a person who normally loves collections, anthologies, compilations, or whatever the group of authors putting them together chooses to call their bundle of stories. This week, unfortunately, I read not just one but two anthologies that disappointed me. This is one of them. I am new to most, if not all, of these authors.

This week, unfortunately, I read not just one but two anthologies that disappointed me. This is one of them. I am new to most, if not all, of these authors. That's a reason why I enjoy anthologies; I hope to be introduced to a new author or two whose books I will love. However, this book has one story that needs you to read another before it so you can appreciate it (as it gives insights into something that happened in that book) and at least half of these stories end on cliffhangers. I am not a fan of cliffhangers in books in general and certainly not in an anthology like this. If the book description at my favorite book review site had stated that so many of these stories ended on cliffhangers, I would not have chosen this book to review. If cliffhangers don't bother you, you might enjoy these stories more than I did. These two issues made it seems almost craven (more so than usual), that the authors just put out this anthology to make you read their other books. I prefer to be enticed not dragged because of a cliffhanger or knowledge needed of another book.As always in anthologies like this, the writing quality is variable between the stories. I most enjoyed Menagerie of Oddities and Come What Fae (sucked in by the title, I'll admit). Perhaps I would have enjoyed the writing quality if there weren't so many cliffhangers, but after a while, I found that they decreased my enjoyment of the book as a whole as one after one seemed to have them. the book doesn't seem to have too many issues with grammar, punctuation, and usage, which is always refreshing in an anthology.I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review--obviously.

I specifically picked this up to read works by two of the authors, but I found myself devouring all the stories in the anthology.This review is for Her Fae Warrior by Ariel Marie. I really enjoyed this read. Ariel Marie always gives us strong heroines, fearless heroes, heart pounding action and steamy relationships. This, I am happy to say, does not deviate from that winning formula. Our focus is on Arnarra and Voron, but they are surrounded by a strong secondary cast that are screaming to have their stories told. This story does set you up for a next book, there is no resolution in this short, A fantastic start to something new, I can't wait to read what comes next.Fires of Valor by K. Lorraine is another short story in the Tempted by Fae Anthology. I found myself sucked into all the wonderful stories in this read. Fires of Valor is a sweet and sexy (Mature Readers Only) tale of a Fae dragon (Valor) meeting his human mate (Josslyn) that accidentally crosses into Faery. I loved that there is so much passion and heartfelt story packed into such a short read. I highly recommend the read and invite you to join the Coven!This honest and voluntary review was made possible by reading a copy through Booksprout.

And the story doesn’t disappoint. While it’s a follow-up/follow-on, it can be read as a standalone without that prior reading. The anthology as a whole is one you’ll want to keep coming back to – Andie Long’s “Come What Fae” is another re-reader. I recommend that you read it as I am doing – in those times when you want something special and an escape from reality. I received a free copy of this anthology. My review is posted voluntarily.

And in the end, both are stronger, happier and respect the other deeply. The love stories that grow from these epic powerful female and male battles is a love you know will never wither and die.

My initial review is for her novella alone, with an update below after having read the anthology.Crowned Torment opens with Kat, a human in the human realm, unhappily seeking an artifact for the demanding boss of a video game company. Of course, said artifact is cursed, binds itself to the unsuspecting woman, and somehow transports her to the realm of the Fae.Adrian, the son of the former king, is slowly healing from the centuries of magical torment and imprisonment that he faced at his father's hands. He stumbled across Kat, saves her life in one harrowing moment, and then finds himself drawn to both her and the mystery of her curse.Though from different worlds and both struggling with the ill-effects of magic, they must come together to break the curse and put a stop to the forces behind it - and see if they can walk away from each other at the end.I enjoyed Twisted Captive, and this novella was a great sequel to its events. We got to see how Adrian fared after his release, and meeting Kat gave him purpose he desperately needed, both in finding a reason to heal himself and to take a place back amongst the Fae. The chemistry ad pull between him and Kat was immediate and fierce, which is nothing less than I'd expect from any of Patricia Eddy's stories.Updated to add:The anthology as a whole has a great mix of stories, and it has definitely led me to look into a couple of the other authors' works as a result. Overall, a great read, with something for everyone to enjoy.

I really enjoyed this anthology a lot less than I otherwise would have because of the plethora of cliffhanger endings. It left a bit of a nasty taste in my mouth. I recommend this anthology only to readers who enjoy or don't mind cliffhanger endings or who are already fans of these authors' other works, not someone like me who had not read anything else written by most of these authors before. I will definitely not be buying myself a keeper copy of this anthology, for those reasons.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Like others who had this on pre-order, I had to purchase after the release thanks to a snafu within the Amazon system. I started out by sampling around the stories. Of course, I headed for Patricia Eddy's first, but then I read the others too. And in this case, with this anthology, you won't have much to worry about. I think all the stories rank up there as being very well written.If you are a paranormal fan, this anthology gives you SO MUCH to choose from and who knows? You may love them all!

I certainly enjoyed the stories. I love anthologies like this because it gives me a chance to read the work of more than one author and in this case, since I don't normally read a lot of paranormal fiction, it also gave me a chance to sample different writing styles within the genre. Color me very pleased!And understand that, by not reading a lot of paranormal, if there are "mistakes" (if that's possible), I'll never catch them. I read to enjoy the stories, and I found each of these within to be worthy of my time.

    I’m not usually fan of short stories but I thought I would give this a wee go as I’m thoroughly enjoying the True Immortal books by S Young. I also love Amelia Hutchens Fae books so thought why not.I would say I would give those 2 lovely ladies short story’s full 5/5 which I had no doubt about. It has just made me thirsty for more from them. The others were completely new to me but I thought this would be a good way to see other authors works. Patricia D.

Eddy, Dyan Chick, Corinne O’Flynn and Lisa Manifold are now going on my watch lists as those stories really sucked me in.So all in all it was a worthwhile adventure into trying out short stories for once. I do still prefer longer books especially once with a series to get thoroughly immersed in the story and all the characters but that’s just me personally. It’s the only reason I rated this 4/5.Overall if you love Fae as much as I do then this is a must read 🙂

    I think Anthologies are a great way of getting a taster of an author or genre, even if you prefer to read longer stories I am sure you will enjoy reading this collection. Every story is short and succinct and gives us a glimpse into the life of the characters and worlds each author has created.Some of the stories are standalone short stories while others are from a series, but still enjoyable and you know before you start reading them which they are.All stories have a similar theme, fae, but eve I think Anthologies are a great way of getting a taster of an author or genre, even if you prefer to read longer stories I am sure you will enjoy reading this collection.

I am not going to review each story separately but I will say they are all well written, some are hot and some are sweet whilst some are both and all the characters are interesting.If you are a fan of this genre or are just dipping your toes in for the first time I am sure you will find something which appeals to you.

    This book is a collection of twelve paranormal Fae romances, and while I only had a chance to read one of the stories so far, I really enjoyed this book. Crowned Torment by Patricia D. Eddy, follows Adrian and Kat. When Kat finds herself searching for an artifact for her arrogant boss, the artifact attaches itself to her and magically transports her to a different Realm, where she finds herself in the arms of Adrian, the son of the former king.

When Kat finds herself searching for an artifact for her arrogant boss, the artifact attaches itself to her and magically transports her to a different Realm, where she finds herself in the arms of Adrian, the son of the former king. Unbeknownst to her, the artifact begins to poison her, killing her slowly while she suffers in agony. Though Adrian doesn’t speak due to years of abuse and torture by his father, the pair find their chemistry sparking and must discover a way to work together to find a cure to save Kat and remove the artifact.I’m sure when I have more time I will read the rest and discover some other new authors.

I will try slowly to review more of the other stories but I have such a hectic schedule and the other authors are unknown to me, other than Ariel, but I will try at a later date to get more of these stories read❣️I really enjoyed Ariel’s story as it focuses on the General of Faery’s Army and the Princess.

    I received a copy from Andie Long and provided my review voluntarily. I read hers first and will review others as I finish. Come What Fae: Quick novella that stands alone from the series. Always a fun read with snarky humor and sexual tension. Nothing says fun like a paranormal dating agency. Zara is basically a homebody with sloppy habits. Boone is a faerie with a talent for cleaning. A match made in faerie land.

Rose and Fionn are tracking down the immortal werewolf, Kiyo, to protect another fae. We basically get an update on the couple until the third book.

    This is a good collection of twelve magical paranormal romances. The collection features some of my favorites writers in this genre but also some new authors I was happy to be introduced to. The stories are all fairly quick reads that feature some wonderful characters and enjoyable plots. All of the stories vary on plots that are captivating and intriguing. The one thing I did not like is that some of these ended in cliffhangers or had me confused at the beginning.

You get a glimpse into a writers work and I am a little hesitant to pick up books that end cliffhangers so I am less likely to read future works by those writers. I did like the stories other than that one down point.

    I have only read a few fae romance books and I am becoming a huge fan of them, so when I read this anthology I was beyond excited because what is interesting about fae stories is that each one is unique. This anthology is full of great short stories that I found exciting, steamy, and fun to read. Each one brings it own uniqueness to the fae world and each author has their own take of what the fae, their worlds, and different creatures should be like.

    Truthfully I read this book because one of my favorite authors, Patricia D Eddy contributed to the anthology. Her selection was, as always, well crafted and I absolutely loved the story. What I was not expecting was to find myself lost in the other stories. This isn't my go to genre so I was unfamiliar with the other authors and I have to say I was blown away.

    Best you get comfy before you start this collection as once you start the only time you will move is to look for more books by each author. This is a great collection to sample other authors work as well as visit their existing worlds and find new authors to read and enjoy. I loved how Patrica D. Eddy's contribution to this collection Crowned Torment was a novella based in her book Twisted Captive's world. It was great to be back in crazy fae world and I just loved Kat and the fact that Adrian s Best you get comfy before you start this collection as once you start the only time you will move is to look for more books by each author.

Personal fave, May Sage, hit it out of the park with her signature detailed writing, mystery and complex characters. I loved Ariel Marie's story of war, magic and romance.
