For centuries, Phoebe Whelan’s family of witches and mages has guarded the Book of Sindal, a tome filled with spells so evil it could destroy the world. After their parents’ death six years ago, it’s up to Phoebe and her older and younger sisters—Rowan and Celeste—to guard the book with their magic and their supernaturally fortified land. But Celeste’s expression magic is wild and untamed, and without their mother’s calming influence, Celeste is slowly going mad.

When the book—and Celeste—go missing, the Valarian Small Council believes Celeste stole the deadly book of spells. When they assign Captain Brandon Cassidy, the head of the Magical Protective Force and Phoebe’s former high school crush, to look for the book, and things get a whole lot more complicated.

Soon it becomes apparent a dark force has taken the book, which will only open with the blood of all three Whelans. The Dark Set has the strongest sister, now it needs the blood of the other two. Brandon’s mission quickly changes to include her protection, but Phoebe’s goal has remained the same—find the book and her sister, prove Celeste’s innocence, and let nothing get in her way, including her reawakened feelings for the man at her side.

My Review of Moonlight Rogues: Origins

C60BE036-5753-4FA6-8FEF-4809C286EE86Moonlight Rogues: Origins

Moonlight Rogues 0.5

Alexa Whitewolf

Four wolves. Four alpha males. One town to bring them all together….

The lupo mannaro without a family….

Lucas was born to be king, until the price was too high. Now, he’ll have to settle for alpha…if he can escape his past.

The vârcolac without a home…

The mountains of yore call his name louder than his parents’ pleas to stay. But is he ready for what gate has in store, even if it means giving up his hard-earned freedom?

The faoladh without a purpose…

One case was all it took. One mistake he could never take back. Now, he’ll pay the ultimate price – exile.

​The lobisomem without peace…

Tristan chose to save his country, not knowing the price was his sanity. Is there really a coming home, for the one who’s seen it all, and more?

A Moonlight Rogues novella to give you a taste of four amazing stories, each one filled with unique folkloric add-ons.

MY REVIEW

If you haven’t picked up one of the Moonlight Rogues books, don’t just sit there …go get started!

Moonlight Rogues: Origins is actually Moonlight Rogues 0.5. So it is the start of everything. It introduces each of our wolves, where they came from before they ended up at Rockland Creek, how they met and became a pack. We get a peek at what their lives were like before ending up Rockland Creek. Four beautiful Alphas with disturbing backgrounds.

This can be read after reading the other books in the series. I’ve read it after Second To Surrender (Moonlight Rogues 2). It has only made me love my wolves more!!! Especially Lucas, that wolf has definitely won my heart. 💙

I highly recommend this Prequel to the Moonlight Rogues series, plus I highly highly recommend the series itself!!!!! These werewolves are unlike any you’ve read about before!!! 5+ howling stars!

My Review: Second To Surrender by Alexa Whitewolf

Second To Surrender

(Moonlight Rogues Book 2)

by Alexa Whitewolf

B9203E66-32D9-4678-A3A2-D0B9DD1BB655He fought for freedom and survived…

During his time in the military, Tristan Cayne has seen more than some do in an entire lifetime. Part of a special ops team tasked with hunting down creatures of the night, he spent his days tracking them, and his nights fighting them.….but not without demons that followed him back home.Back to the mainland, he moves to Rockland Creek, hoping for peace and quiet. Love isn’t in the cards, especially not after his last failed relationship. His wishes are answered, if only for a little while. Then his pack member Dominic turns out to be in charge of the same creatures Tristan spent months fighting. And those demons he thought were only in his nightmares? Well, they’re about to get pretty damn real.

In the midst of his struggle to cope, Daniela Da Silva calls for help, and Tristan has no choice but to answer. History ties them together with bonds thicker than blood, but more unsteady than ever. Because Dani’s not in town just for kicks. She’s hiding, and seeking protection…

The war that was brewing is at their doorstep…

Allies and enemies collide in this second installment, as the stakes grow higher every day. Dani’s hiding secrets, but will they harm the pack or help them? And while Tristan’s fighting for her protection, will he be able to defeat the demons prowling in his nightmares, robbing him of sleep?

…and no one is safe.

As Tristan fights the ultimate battle for his sanity, he also navigates the ever-murky waters of a new relationship. Destined to be together, or to fail? Only he and Dani can tell – that’s if they overcome the fear of losing each other. Their romance wasn’t written in the stars, and it sure as hell isn’t a fairytale. Then again, that’s what makes it worth it.

Stuck between a rival’s pack internal conflicts, a dragon wandering about like he owns the town, and the rest of the psychotic Da Silva family out to get them could just turn out to be the easy part. Fighting their connection, seeing if it’ll lead somewhere other than chemistry and a goold old roll in the hay? That’s another story all together.

Real or fake, truth or lie, the stakes are high. Tristan and Dani will have to trust each other and navigate the stormy seas together, or else risk being torn apart – forever.

*Book II in a new series of sizzling werewolves, forgotten folklore and untamed legends.*

I am absolutely blown away by everything I read by Alexa Whitewolf! But, loving Werewolves, I was especially in love with First To Fall (Moonlight Rogues #1). Whenever I got a hold of book 2, Second To Surrender, i was so freaking excited!! Well, oh my goodness, THIS BOOK DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!!! This one was as good, if not better, than the first!!!! I love them both SO MUCH!!!

There’s a wonderful romance going on, thats very important, between Tristan and Dani (be still my beating heart). But there’s SO MUCH MORE!!! First of all there’s Witches and Dragons….FREAKING WOW!!! There is so many twists and turns, secrets, and tons of action (nail biting action)!!!

This is a wonderful paranormal romance, that I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! It deserves all the stars in the World!!! Read it!!!

If you haven’t yet started the Moonlight Rogues Series, you can start now with First To Fall!

He was given a new life, a new choice, a new path…

Once upon a time, Dominic Kosta didn’t have a last name. In fact, he had nothing growing up in a secluded orphanage in the mountains of Transylvania. Then an American couple adopted him, and life changed. He left behind the old
legends, the myths, the hunger within him.

He threw it all behind, choosing seclusion and a little town….

Rockland Creek may be a hole in the middle of nowhere, but Dom’s happy there. Life has its perks between fixing cars and seducing women. And best of all? There are no rules, other than Lucas’. Then Lucrezia San Marco walks in, and draws him in like a moth to a flame. Only, she only has eyes for Lucas, his boss – and alpha of the pack.

…filled with werewolves.

There’s nothing normal about Rockland Creek – or Dominic’s existence there. But things are about to get worse, and not just because he sees the girl he loves slipping through his fingers.

A war is brewing, eclipsing their romance and dragging old ghosts into town…

As Dominic navigates the murky waters of romance and obedience to his leader, his feelings for Lucrezia can no longer be tamed. But not everyone supports their relationship – and the Reapers have a word or two to say against it. As does Lucrezia’s ex, and the demons he brings with him.

Fire and ice, cold and hot, wolf and human. Dom and Luz will have to combine their differences and learn to compromise, or risk being torn apart by the wave of change unfurling onto Rockland Creek.

Book I in a new series of sizzling werewolves, forgotten folklore and untamed legends.

I was reading over the summary of the book before writing this review. The summary says it all, there’s not much more I can say about the story itself. But I will say, this is one of the best werewolf books I’ve ever read. Alexa Whitewolf was born in Romania and she grew up in the Transylvania region surrounded by epic mountains and a never ending stream of legends and stories. So between the legends and stories she grew up with and a very active imagination, you can see how she came up with the creation of First To Fall where Dominic came from Transylvania and the legends followed him.

I love Dominic (Dom) and Lucrezia (Luz)…they are such an awesome couple. Luz is a bit of a firecracker!! You cannot help but fall in love with Dom and Luz. The others in the pack: Lucas (pack leader), Tristan, and Finn are interesting and have there own story and I hope as the series goes on we get to learn about each pack member and see them get their mate. There’s so much I’d love to talk about, but I will give too much away. But you will love this story, it’s full of romance (of course), werewolves (duh), surprises, twists and turns, so much suspense!! It’s not just some romantic werewolf book, it’s very exciting!! There’s battles and people get hurt. So much happens! I was up late at night finishing it, because I couldn’t put it down!! I highly recommend this one guys!! 5++ Stars!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Avalon Dreams (Avalon Chronicles #1)

by Alexa Whitewolf

Goodreads | Amazon | All Other Retailers

Book Description:

“It was impossible they had met before – of that she was certain. Yet his hold on her was undisputable, an irrational pull to the utmost recesses of her soul.”

Vivienne du Lac has everything she could wish for – a normal, peaceful life, a good job, cushy nest egg, and a semi-social nightlife. The only problem? She’s clueless to being the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake, mythical sorceress from King Arthur’s time, and Merlin’s apprentice.

Sebastien Dubois is the guy you wouldn’t take home to mom and dad. He’s the one you jump off on a motorcycle with, to ride into the sunset. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling from the start – but there’s more to the tall, dark and handsome stranger. When a magical past tumbles into her orderly reality, he is Vivienne’s only hope at survival.

Caught between darkness and light, a battle she has no intention to fight – let alone the knowledge to win – Vivienne quickly finds out not even closest allies can be trusted.

Can she look within and access powers from long past, become the enchantress Merlin meant her to be… Or will she lose it all over love, for Sebastien’s salvation? This is a battle between good and evil you don’t want to miss.

Vivienne is still reeling from the fight with Carleigh and finally enjoying some well-deserved quality time with Sébastien. Absorbed into each other, neither is aware of the dark forces lurking in the shadows that threaten their newfound happiness.

And what of Merlin, whose sole purpose was to imprison the now-immortal Carleigh? Try as they may, none of the heroes can reach him, and his eerie silence is worrisome.

Lost opportunities, bitter lovers and ambitious sorcerers collide in one last battle for the fate of the world. In this final installment of the Avalon Chronicles, everything will come full circle…but not everyone may get a happy ending.

Mia is finally getting what she’s always wanted—the chance to be off on her own at college. Her own apartment, sexy college guys, and, most importantly, no more pride rules to follow. At least not until after graduation, when she’ll return home and marry the mate her father, the alpha, chooses for her. Until then, Mia is determined to enjoy her freedom to the fullest. And when Tristan comes along, she knows she’s met the perfect fling.

It’s Tristan’s last year at Mountain Ridge University. He’s ready for some smooth sailing, including no girl drama. As a jaguar shifter, he’s not interested in a relationship, and certainly not a mate. Mia is the answer to what he’s looking for—playful, sassy, and seeking a bit of no-strings-attached fun.
But is there more to their relationship than either of them is willing to admit?

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.

Fountain Dead edited

Fountain Dead

Expected Publication: Mid-November

Genre: Mature YA Horror/ Paranormal

Mark is uprooted from his home and high school in the Twin Cities and forced to move with his family into a Victorian in Nowhere-ville. Busy with the relocation and fitting in, Mark’s parents don’t see what’s unfolding around them—the way rooms and left behind objects seem alive with a haunted past.

Of course, Mark keeps his ghostly encounters to himself, all the while sinking deeper into the house’s dark, alluring, and ultimately terrifying history. As romantic entanglements intensify, the paranormal activity escalates. Past and present come together. Everything is connected—from the bricks in the walls to the hearts beating in their chests, all the secrets of Fountain Dead are finally unearthed.

Coming Soon!

Excerpt

house gfx

The vapor wafting from the stagnant pool smelled like the rancid rot from inside a carcass. Mark felt he breathed in fire. The gooey surface boiled and foamed as if a prehistoric substance. His heart stopped as something emerged. A goopy and gnarled dome became a sickly face. The eyelids still closed, the rest of the form rose, covered in green.

A tattered dress clung to the feminine curves. The cloth slipped from the shoulders, drawing his attention to her skin. The texture made him gag.

A sour taste of bile filled his mouth. His skin contracted as he contemplated her spongy flesh. Her black eyes sprang open like a demonic doll’s. Her inhuman gaze stabbed his very core, and he knew he was facing a soul-less being. The eyes burned like hot stove burners.

A decomposing hand extended toward his throat.

Mark woke, wet with perspiration. His pillowcase and sheets were damp, as if he’d taken a swim in the fountain. That idea made him unable to breathe. His heartbeat sped along at a rate close to heart attack status as he tried not to blow a gasket about the evil that lie in wait. He whipped his pillow from behind his head and squashed it to his chest. No one would grasp what he’d been feeling—or what he’d been seeing.

His lip trembled.

Something—a fiend, a spirit, the fountain—wanted to hurt him.

Mark’s chest compressed.

The devil on his shoulder advised him that his mother had to be right. All of the metal music, the cartoons, the swearing, had been an invitation for demons and darkness. Forget the fact that none of his friends had ever mentioned opening some gateway to hell. These dark forces had chosen him.

He lied back, exhaustion sinking him deeper into the mattress. After pulling the blood warm sheets up to his chin, he shunned the moonlight streaming into the room. The crooked claws of the branches squealed against the half-open windowpane. Summer’s hot breath puffed into the house. Mark didn’t have to strain to hear its griping—the sighs of the woodwork and the building’s various joints.

The door to the servants’ quarters was open again. However, that bothered him less and less. A perfume of fragrant flowers sent him to sleep.

About the Author

theresa-braun

Hmmm. What’s this? Looks like Ms. Braun left her computer on and her Goodreads bio open.

This should be fun.

What can we say about Theresa? I mean other than the fact that she’s weirdly obsessed with smiley faces :-). Like, seriously obsessed >:-*. It’s kinda scary :-O.

I think she thinks she’s from Renaissance England or Venice or something. I never could figure out which one it was. (She’s really bad at doing accents.)

She likes romance novels and crime TV, which are pretty much the same thing when you think about it. Ha! Am I right?

She has a hell of a singing voice. Seriously. It’s, like, seventh circle of hell bad.

She likes editing. A lot. Just wait till she get’s aload a this.

Cats. Shoes. Chips and salsa. In that order.

Yeah, that last part didn’t make sense to me either.
