When Time Stops: Dragon Shifter Surprise Pregnancy Romance

4heart

Synopsis
Aeon is a time dragon living in France. His brothers tricked him out of protecting the family’s lair and treasure for the year. He decides he will use the time to travel. At his first stop, he visits on of the family’s many night clubs. He meets Isobel and they have a one night stand.

Isobel is on her honeymoon vacation minus the groom. He left her at the altar. She is determined to have some fun. The hot and heavy attraction with Aeon fits the bill. After their night of fun, Isobel is kidnapped and made the prize in a dragon tournament.

Aeon usually avoids these tournaments because he thinks they are too barbaric for modern times, but he enters because he feels that he owes it to Isobel to win her freedom.

Opinion
This book brought the dragon heat early! From the moment they saw each other in the night club, I could feel the intensity of their connection radiate off the page.

I still don’t understand how a time dragon can bend time, but it worked for the story.
Isobel held her own despite everything her narcissistic mother, philandering fiance, and the whole kidnapping ordeal with a lot of horny dragons drooling over her.

Image result for you do you boo
All the dragon fighting brought a medieval vibe to the story even though it happened in modern era. Throughout the different challenges, nothing goes totally as expected. There were even a few plot twists that threw me for a loop.

Like WHAAA?

I am talking about things in addition to the surprise pregnancy. It is too cute when she tells him that she is pregnant. That makes me smile just thinking about it.

Blog Tour: Dragons Need Love, Too @LaniLynnVale #amreading

Title: Dragons Need Love, Too
Series: I Like Big Dragons Series #2
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Published: October 19, 2016

Nikolai Vassago has a plan.
His day starts out fairly normal. Get up, kick some ass, fondle his beard, take some names.
One second he’s participating in a normal every day mission, and the next he’s saving the one woman that fate has promised him for the rest of his life from the grips of a criminal mastermind.
Nikolai can’t say he’s altogether displeased with what he’s given, though. Not with that gorgeous brunette that would soon be warming his bed.
The same can’t be said for Brooklyn.
Living in a commune most of her life meant she wasn’t exposed to all of life’s craziness. The moment she turned eighteen, she was off and running, experiencing all of what life had to give.
That means she sometimes jumps in feet first, not thinking about consequences until the deed is already done.
Nikolai rescues her from a fate worse than hell, throwing her on the back of his dragon and flying off into the night.
He’s a go-with-the-flow kind of man. Brooklyn, however, is not.
Having been caged for the first eighteen years of her life, she wants nothing more than to be free to do what she pleases, consequences be damned.
Nikolai, however, has different ideas, and he’s not above using his masculine will to prove to her that she’s exactly where she needs to be.



“This is an all action paranormal romance with lots of dangerous family drama. One family is over protective the other is full of dangerous killers. Add in dragon magic and hot sex , you get a book you can’t put down.” ~Warrior Woman Winmill

“…this series is just so different. It’s a breath of fresh air, and it draws the reader in right from the start. I can’t recommend this book and this new series from Ms. Vale highly enough.” ~Red Cheeks Reads

“This book was witty, entertaining, serious, and funny all at the same time.” ~Swoon Worthy Books

I don’t know why I never expected Nikolai to be able to fight.

He had the muscles.

He worked out.

He was aware.

But he never struck me as fierce.

I wasn’t thinking that anymore, though, as I watched him beat the ever loving shit out of his opponent.

He never used a single one of his powers to accomplish it, either.

He did it all with sheer strength, force of will, and knowledge.

He was divine.

All we were supposed to be doing was buying some supplies for the house.

It’d been over two months since I’d woken from my coma, six weeks since he’d told me I was his mate and even longer since the housekeeper had stocked the kitchens.

I’d never been so happy to leave the confines of a house.

I would’ve been happy with going in a plain old car; but, today, Nikolai had taken me on a motorcycle, of all things.

I’d always wanted to ride on one but had never had the courage to ask for a ride.

Today, though, I’d practically begged Nikolai for us to take it.

He’d argued that a truck would hold more groceries, but I’d been adamant.

I didn’t even know why, either.

Just the thought of being in the open air, outside the confines of the sanctuary, turned me into a giggling mass of excitement.

And I was sure that nothing would ruin this day…but I’d been wrong.

Since I was now watching my man get ganged up on by five men.

My uncle’s cronies could ruin my day, as evidenced by the stupid goon trying to slash Nikolai’s face off with a f****n’ saber sword.

I’d at first tried to help Nikolai, but his insistence that I back up and stay the hell out of it had been loud and clear, even when he hadn’t actually said any of those words out loud.

But he’d been awesome at screaming them inside my head like I was a disobeying three-year-old, rather than a twenty-six-year-old grown ass adult who knew how to wipe her own butt.

I watched with the brick wall of a convenience store at my back.

Nikolai’s bike was on its side where he’d dumped it.

My arm was scratched, and a strange throbbing sensation was going on with my ribs.

Funny enough, I hadn’t remembered ever hitting my ribs. Nikolai had been extremely careful about laying his bike down as we slid.

He’d also made me wear protective clothing, such as a brand new pair of motorcycle boots. A leather jacket with padding in the elbows and back, as well as a pair of pants that were supposedly flame proof.

I was glad he’d forced me to wear them now; but a scant hour before, as I’d been getting dressed, I’d been reluctant.

“Duck!” Nikolai screamed.

Then, I was seeing nothing but black. Everything around me was black.

“Nikolai!” I whispered frantically. “I can’t see!”

Strong arms, the arms that I was coming to care for in the short few days that we’d officially started to ‘date,’ wrapped around me.

“Shh,” he breathed, so low that I couldn’t be sure that he said anything at all.

Grab the bike, he whispered through my brain.

I moved my arms forward and grabbed on to the bike, feeling him shift as he got on. Then he pulled me on behind him and a loud roar sounded as he turned over the engine.

“Hold on,” he rushed.

I held on.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Terry Bolryder & Awakened #Dragon series #romance #shifters

You might have guessed that one of my favorite authors is Terry Bolryder. Well friends, she has a new series out called Awakened Dragon series.

Verdict is in: I love all of them!

4heart

It is hard for me to even sit still to write the review about each book because, I love them all. Every time I think about the stories, I want to reread the books. I am seriously addicted to these characters.

Image result for hes my crush meme

Opinion
Each dragon has his power that is not really understood by the rest because dragons used to be loners before they were put to sleep. Now in modern times, they have to stick together to fight a common enemy. They understand that the oracle knows best but they do not always approve of her methods. If they find their mates, they can have full access to their powers. It should be simple, but they did not count on the women having minds of their own.

These stories are fun and creative. I love dragon shifter romances and have enjoyed this series immensely. I think it is because they have personalities that are all various ranges of the amoral scale. It is not that they are bad, but they never really had to care about humanity. They did their own thing, benefiting from their status and power, but not completely understanding how to care to make a positive impact in the world.

Then they each meet their mate, and their world changes drastically.

I cannot wait to read Aegis’ (Emerald dragon) story.

Image result for i'm so excited meme

I think he might end up being the most complex of them all. I am dancing in expectation of reading his story. At the beginning of the series, I thought I hated him. But as more of his story is revealed, I realize that he is another conflicted hero in the making.

Review: Fire by Tiffany Flowers #dragonshifter #paranormalromance @Authortflowers

Title: Fire
Series: A Dragon’s Novel #1
Author: Tiffany Flowers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Dragons are not supposed to exist. They are just fairy tale creatures in stories used to get children to sleep. Now faced with a living breathing Dragon, Jade Teal has no choice but to believe. And with this newfound knowledge, danger arrives at every turn.

Alex Sparks is the leader of the Drac Dragon Clan. He doesn’t want a mate, ever. Sent out on a rescue mission to save a human female, he comes face to face with someone that he did not expect. To protect her, his world will be set on fire.

~~~TOW Review~~~

4heartWhen Alex and Jade meet, Jade finds out that everything that she heard about the legends and stories she had been told as a child was true. If that was not mind blowing enough, she also finds out that Alex thinks she should be his mate.
I think that the author did a very good job of making Jade very realistic for the situation she was in. She could not understand if it was her body’s attraction to Alex that was drawing her to him or if they really had a connection to be together.
I loved this story so much that I could not put it down. I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride and all I could do was hold on as tightly as possible. I felt for both Jade and Alex because they had aspects of their personality which they deemed themselves unlovable.
In the end, they both have to come to terms with learning how to love themselves before they could recognize the truth about love they found in each other. It was so much more than a simple connection shared between the dragon and his mate.
TOW Opinion: Should you buy, borrow or pass?
BUY!!! You will not be disappointed. The story flows well with characters that come to life.

Blog tour: I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie by @LaniLynnVale #paranormalromance #dragonromance

Title: I Like Big Dragons and I Cannot Lie
Series: The Dragon Series #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Available Now

Keifer Vassago, The Prince of Dragons, has enough on his plate without adding a brunette with a bad attitude to the mix

Fate has a way of screwing all his plans, though, whether he wants them screwed or not. One second he’s fetching his brother from yet another situation that could possibly compromise the Vassago name, and the next that brunette is grabbing his assets.

Blythe isn’t after anyone’s assets, though. She’s a good girl. All she wants is to graduate from nursing school, get a job, and move out of her hell hole apartment. What she does not have time to deal with is a sexy bearded man that accuses her of grabbing his junk.

She tries to forget about the encounter, but fate’s a cruel bitch.

One second she’s a normal college student barely living paycheck to paycheck, and the next she’s setting her panties on fire with powers from an ancient immortal dragon.

To add insult to injury, she’s hearing voices, and none of them are figments of her imagination. Blythe’s life is turned upside down, and Keifer forces her to adapt even though she doesn’t want to. She likes her life just the way it is.

Not to mention she wants nothing to do with that arrogant asshole. She doesn’t care that he rides a dragon. She also could care less about his stupid beard, and his sexy eyes.

Yeah, who was she kidding? She wasn’t convincing anybody.

“Oh my heavens to Betsey, I was given an opportunity to have a sneak peek at this bad boy from Lani Lynn Vale. First, I love that Lani’s style of writing that balances family, feels, and loyalty with lots of life follows through into this series.”Author Chelsea Cameron

“On a closing note Lani Lynn Vale did it again with another amazing book…” Goodreads Reviewer

I woke up to my lower half on fire.

 

At first, I thought it was just an aftereffect of my dreams, but when I finally peeled my eyes open, I could smell smoke.

 

 

When I opened my lids and looked down, it was to literally find my panties on fire.

 

 

I screamed and rolled; rolling so far in the bed that I hit the floor and kept going.

 

 

By the time the fire was finally out, my panties were burned to ash. However, my skin was perfectly fine. In fact, the hairs that I’d planned on having waxed later in the week were gone.

 

 

It’d given me a fire waxing…minus the wax.

 

 

“What the f***?” I yelled, staring down at my now hair-free mound.

 

 

Blasphemy.

 

 

My eyes widened and I looked around. Was someone in the room with me?

 

 

I started reaching for the lamp but couldn’t find it. There was a pile of things beside the bed that I’d knocked over in my haste to get up. I could only assume that the lamp was one of those things.

 

 

“Light, light, light,” I chanted, shifting through the things on the floor.

 

 

My candles that I had interspersed around the room all lit at once, and I screamed.

 

 

“What the hell is going on?” I shrieked.

 

 

Macy started hammering on the wall, or her boyfriend. Whatever. F*** her.

 

 

I narrowed my eyes at the wall.

 

 

That stupid heifer! I’m allowed to scream if I want to. She f*** day and night, and she’s going to bang on my wall to get me to quiet down?

 

 

Master Farrow has always had excellent stamina with the ladies.

 

 

I froze, turning around and scanning the room.

 

 

“Who’s there?” I asked nervously.

 

 

A deep, rumbly laugh filled my head and my eyes widened.

 

 

“Holy mother of God, get out of my head!” I yelled.

 

 

The voice in my head continued to chuckle. Oh, this is almost as good as when Prince Keifer came into his powers. He didn’t shriek like you do, though.
