RELEASE BLITZ: Fatal Harmony by Anne Malcom

Title: Fatal Harmony
Series: The Vein Chronicles #1
Author: Anne Malcom
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2017


I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.

Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it's something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.

Evil doesn’t exist.

Neither does ‘good.’

Vampires do, though.

I just happen to be one.

I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.

I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.

I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I'm in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.

Battles, I can handle.

The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?

I might not get out undead.

Author Bio

Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth; then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.

Raised in small town New Zealand, Anne had a truly special childhood, growing up in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. For now, she's back at home in New Zealand and quite happy. But who knows when the travel bug will bite her again?

Fatal Harmony is completely out of what I normally read. It’s nice to venture into something different though. This is the first book in a new supernatural series by Anne Malcom. It’s also my first time reading this author… so we’re just new all over the place!!  I gotta mention this cover first… I LOVE it!! It’s slightly freaky and totally pulls me in! I have to say that I am THRILLED that I took a chance on this book!!

Isla is totally AMAZING! She’s the best, most kick@ss vampire!! I loved every single thing about here! She seriously is no joke… I love how she eats and I won’t get into it because I don’t want to tell the story to you. She’s pretty much a loner and after reading about her family, I can understand why!! I guess even vampires have messed up families… she may have everyone beat though. Isla’s family is freakin off their rockers crazy!

This book isn’t just vampire awesomeness… she was funny too! It was funny! I laughed out loud at her antics and her clean up guy. There was so many love interests in this book… the king, the slayer…possibly the clean up guy… who knows!? Read it… I guarantee you will love it! If paranormal isn’t your thing… read it! It will surprise you!! I really highly recommend it… it was close to perfection for me!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

CROWN OF LIES by Pepper Winters

Genre: Dark Romance
Author: Pepper Winters
Release Date: January 31, 2017

“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”

Noelle Charlston lived a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.

However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver.

Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched.
Including her.

Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else.

Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.

Pepper Winters is a writer where I just get her books. I don’t need to read her synopsis or any teasers for the book. I know I’m going to enjoy it. She’s proven that point time and time again! So going into this book I wasn't really sure what it was about before reading. The title and cover don’t give too much away as far as info on the book. Although… wow what a cover! It’s gorgeous! And of course, I love the title. 
Penn was a sexy hero, just link most, he’s aloof yet extremely intense. He just utterly commands you! Elle was a wonderful character. She was super intriguing since she, herself, is powerful and fully influential. Inside though, she was insecure and naïve. She definitely let Penn take the lead on most things but when push came to shove, she would stand up for herself… which, thank goodness! I don’t like my chicks to be wimpy!! They need to have a backbone!!
This book… man, oh man, Pepper sure left me scratching my head on this one. This was a major twisty, looping rollercoaster! You won’t walk out of this book with clear thoughts! Haha! I’m ok with that… only because Pepper rocks! I know this ending is going to knock me on my ass as she can write a dark, hot suspenseful story like no other! I am glad this is only a duet and I don’t have to wait for a super long time for a conclusion. There aren’t many authors I would take this type of abuse from! But, I’m so extremely excited to see where we go with Penn and Elle, since I have no idea right now!

I don't think I've ever been so happy to see an ARC land on my shelf… seriously, I was in the middle of another book at the time and immediately stopped it to start this. I’ve been dying for this book the minute The Pawn was over. These books have made it into my All Time Favorite Book EVER!! Seriously, I can’t read the fast enough. I just had to know where things would go with Avery and Gabriel. I was incredibly pleased with the way Skye Warren wrote this story… granted I wanted MORE and FASTER! But that’s just because these books are just so damn good!!

The Knight picks right up where The Pawn ended. Poor Avery is in even worse shape. She is heartbroken and destitute… and without her virtue. She is living in a rundown motel no where near what she is used to living. A place where she doesn’t dare leave a dollar behind in fear it won’t be there later. She spends her sleepless nights listening to the prostitute next door “service” her many, many Johns. Avery has reached the lowest point in her life. She’s lost and beyond stressed.

It seems so ironic that I started this book the weekend of the Women's March all around the US. I am not generally one to push my Girl Power beliefs on people but I totally felt that welling up for Avery in the first few chapters of this book. Avery’s attitude and how she refused to just lay down and take it made me want to cheer! She may be stressed and at a super  low point in her life but she doesn’t lay down and take it. This girl is a fighter!

This book… Well, it's like playing a game of clue. Since I've never played chess, all I can think of is Mr. Green in the ballroom with the candlestick! The ball scenes were so tense with such a build up… and it didn’t disappoint.

My only somewhat negative thought is that I would give anything to get some of Gabriel’s thoughts. I just wish WISH this was written in dual POV. I so want in Gabriel's head! Although, this book did enlighten me more to what is in Gabriel's head. It was needed at least for me. You will NOT go wrong with this, soon to be, trilogy. I have seriously LOVED both The Pawn and The Knight!! The Knight though, it has a much more suspense build up and you get more of the story. It’s just filling in enough to drive you batty for The Castle. I’d rate The Knight higher than 5 Star if I could… that’s how much I love it!!!
