Narrative Review of . . .Demon Assassins series . . . Hollie Jackson does an amazing job with her portrayal of each character. She gives them each a life of their own and brings an element of multiple narrators to the table. The tone, flow, dictions, and emphasis makes the read feel like a moving playing in your mind. The vivid words from the page come to life with flare.  The ebb and flow of the surroundings make an impact on the visual concept. Getting all three books in one completed narrative audio was the cherry on top of the sin filled sundae. It was easy to listen on the go and not have to fumble around to change to the next book in the series. Everything ran smoothly. The consistency of having a familiar voice pick up the narration in the next and then the next book made me feel connected and have a relationship with the familiar characters. Hollie Jackson did an amazing job bringing Ann Gimpel’s world of Demon Assassins' to life with it depth and content. Almost twenty hours of intense action, drama, passion, hexes, spells, and of course magic and demons. A whole host in interesting and intriguing characters from the paranormal front. 

Witch’s Bounty
Demon Assassins, #1
Release Date: September 6th 2016

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . .Witch’s Bounty (Demon Assassins, #1) . . . 
I love a strong, kick-ass female. So, what she has a little something extra that makes her extraordinary. There is nothing like a kick-ass female that has back of more kick-ass females just like her. Need I truly say more. Well you guessed it I am.

Colleen has a deep-set need to protect, especially those of her kind, witches. There has been a demon uprising south of her location and she must be enroute if she wants a chance at helping her fellow/sister witches. She has one major obstacle, Duncan. He’s not just anyone she can just kick to the side. He is Sidhe. He was also hot, sexy, and just plain delicious to look at.  Duncan was intrigued by Colleen. She had gust, beauty, and skills. He wanted to know more about his witch.

I found great characters and a good plot with action, adventure, and romance on the hot side.


BLURB
One of three remaining demon assassin witches, Colleen is almost the last of her kind. Along with her familiar, a changeling spirit, she was hoping for a few months of quiet, running a small magicians’ supply store in Fairbanks, Alaska. Peace isn’t in the cards, though. Demons are raising hell in Seattle. She’s on her way to kick some serious demon ass, when a Sidhe shows up and demands she accompany him to England to quell a demon uprising.

Gutsy, opinionated, and outspoken, Colleen refuses to come. Witches need her help, and they trump everything else. Despite breaking a prime Sidhe precept concerning non-interference in mortals’ affairs, Duncan offers his assistance. Colleen fascinates him, and he wants to discover more about her. Lots more.

The Sidhe might be the best-looking man Colleen’s ever stumbled over, but she doesn’t have time for him—or much of anything else. She, Jenna, and Roz are Earth’s only hedge against being overrun by Hell’s minions. Even with help from a powerful magic wielder like Duncan, the odds aren’t good and the demons know it.

Sensing victory is within their grasp, they close in for the kill.

Witch’s Bane
Demon Assassins, #2
Release Date: September 6th 2016

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . Witch’s Bane (Demon Assassins, #2) . . . 
I have said it once. I will say it again. I love kick-ass women that are strong, smart, sexy, and know what they want. Roz, Jenna, and Colleen have been an answer to the supernatural world with their skills and fortitude. This time around we have Roz at the forefront and her personal life was a damn mess. This female has a list of past lover that could rival the height of Sears Tower. To just plain be happy for her sister in arms was hard for her. She wanted what Colleen had with Duncan. She may have that and more with Ronin but she was a headstrong, determined female that wanted no man to over her life.

Ronin has been captivated by Rox since they met, but he has had a hard time capturing her. She lets too many things get in her way including her arrogance. He fully acknowledges that she is strong and a match for him in every way. But he is not certain on a strategy to claim her.

With demons pouring back on to the Earth plains. Things become complicated and priority must be dealt with first. These two make this a read you will not forget. Their chemistry is hot. Their tempers are even hotter or should I say it the other way around. Either way this was a read that could rival the heat of hell.

BLURB
Last of the demon assassin witches, Roz, Jenna, and Colleen have escaped disaster so far, but their luck is running low. Demons strike in the midst of Colleen’s wedding, and Roz launches desperate measures. As she shape-shifts to keep one step ahead of evil, at least it takes her mind off her other problems. Personal ones. She burned through a couple of marriages and hooked up with a string of loser men before, after, and in between. Though she wants to be happy for Colleen, the jealousy bug bit deep and hasn’t let go.

In Roz’s secret heart, she’s attracted to Ronin, one of the Daoine Sidhe. He’s so profanely beautiful she can barely breathe around him, but he’s also headstrong and arrogant. Not good partner material—unless she wants to end up dusting her heart off one more time.

Ronin set his sights on Roz the day he met her, and he can’t get her out of his mind. Unfortunately, she’s so prickly getting close to her requires scheming. He casts an enchantment to lure her at Colleen’s wedding, but she senses the spell and calls him on it. Demons swarm out of the ether before he can come up with another strategy. Killing them trumps everything.

Roz is used to calling the shots. So is Ronin. Sparks fly. Tempers run hot, right along with an attraction too heady to ignore.

Witches Rule
Demon Assassins, #2
Release Date: September 26th 2016

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . Witches Rule (Demon Assassins, #3) . . .  
What’s better than a kick-ass female? Well, a kick-ass female that have two strong, sexy, talented, males that want to love her in every way possible. Each bring something different out in her and make her believe in herself again. Jenna has a lot more within her than any of her sisters ever could have imagined.

Jenna has been the odd woman out for years. She has little control over her magic. Needed to work on that she meets Kierana. He offers to help her learn more and control. He finds that he too has become enamored by this intriguing female. Kierana was aware of Tristan’s claim to this woman but attraction and fates have a way of making things more complicated. This sends Jenna into a tailspin. She has developed feelings for them both. What was a girl to do?  You guess it. But you will never guess the way it all comes together and the beauty of it all. The chemistry so mind blowing and body shaking. Jenna rules this one.

This final installment, to date, has a lot of the paranormal world involved with this fight for Earth. Demons, wiches, fae, Shides, faeries, changlings, and more. 

This one was the one that sealed the deal for me all the way. I am so deeply in love with this series. I will come back to it again and again. No doubt about it. I will start with one and move on to the end of the series. Jenna will hold a special place for me in each book. With her own book being the best of them all. There are many things that come to life in these pages.

BLURB
Jenna’s a special witch, sort of, when her magic works, which it often doesn’t. One of three remaining demon assassins, she and her sister witches, Roz and Colleen, are Earth’s only hedge against being overrun by Hell’s minions. On the heels of Roz’s and Colleen’s weddings, Jenna is headed for the U.K. when a demon confronts her. Any other witch could teleport out of the plane, but not her.

Frustration about her limited power eats at her. It would be pathetic to get killed for lack of skills a teenager could master.

Tristan is a Sidhe warrior, but his primary gift is attunement to others’ emotions. He fell hard for Jenna, but hasn’t had an opportunity to act on their attraction beyond a few kisses because she returned to Alaska, and he’s been in the field fighting demons.

As seer for the Sidhe, Kiernan is haunted by visions, particularly an apocalyptic sending that seems to be coming true. A confirmed bachelor, he doesn’t understand his attraction to Jenna, but it’s so strong he can’t fight it. After a while, he doesn’t even try, despite recognizing Tristan’s claim to her.

Startling truths surface about Jenna’s magic, and then there’s the problem that she’s falling in love with two very different men. At first she believes she has to pick one of them, but her spirit refuses to walk away from either. It’s impossible to choose between a seer with dreams in his eyes and a beautiful man who intuits her every need. Standing on the verge of Earth’s destruction, will she defy convention and follow the song in her heart?

 Ten Tips for Becoming a Better Writer
Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog. And for inviting me back. I take that as a compliment.

1. Read. Read a lot. Not just in the genre you want to write in, but in other genres as well. Learn to recognize why you like (or don’t like) a particular book. Be able to pick out plot threads, tension, pacing, and character development. If you can’t see them in other people’s writing, you won’t be able to work those things into your own, either.

2. Write every day. Even if it’s only a few hundred words. At the beginning, don’t worry about aiming for whole stories. Write scenes. Learn to work with words on your screen.

3. Consider writers’ software like Scrivener. I don’t use it, but I know lots of writers who swear by it. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but what I use in lieu of Scrivener-type software is storyboards and three-ring binders. It’s how I keep my characters and my words and the mythologies in my different books straight. I think you need something. Otherwise, when you go through a story for first edits, you find embarrassing things like your characters’ names having changed. Or their hair color.

4. Find a good critique group. Or at least a couple of critique partners. You need other sets of eyes to go over your writing and tell you where the plot holes are, or why a particular character doesn’t work. We just can’t do that for ourselves. Also, your partner, mother, BFF, etc. can’t do that for you, either. It won’t help you to have someone gush over your work. Even NYT bestselling writers have a phalanx of people looking over their shoulders, starting with their literary agents.

5. Get good and familiar with grammar. They don’t teach it in school like they did when I went an embarrassingly long time ago. Do any of the rest of you remember diagramming sentences? Can you list the various parts of speech? Of a sentence? Do you know why we avoid adverbs and only rarely begin sentences with gerunds? If you know all that stuff, great. Some of it still gives me fits, like lie versus lay. I still have to think that one through. Or farther versus further.

A bit more on #5. Do not rely on Word’s grammar checker. It’s wrong nearly as frequently as it’s correct.

6. Develop a thick skin. Writing is a skill, much like any other. It takes time and dedication to hone your craft. I’ve been grateful for every single review I’ve gotten, even the bad ones, because they’ve highlighted areas I need to focus on.

7. It takes many elements to create a great story. You need three dimensional character who blaze off the page. You need a plot with enough interwoven threads to hold a reader’s interest.

8. Tension and pacing move the plot forward. None of us are born knowing how to do all those things. Characters were always easy for me. I had to teach myself plotting, pacing, and holding tension.

9. Learn to proof your work. It’s a skill. Your chances of publication will improve dramatically if your work is close to error-free.

10. Don’t give up. If you want something, work for it. We don’t truly appreciate what comes to us too easily.

What about the rest of you? Did I miss something you think is critical? Love to have you weigh in.


Author Info
Ann Gimpel is a mountaineer at heart. Recently retired from a long career as a psychologist, she remembers many hours at her desk where her body may have been stuck inside four walls, but her soul was planning yet one more trip to the backcountry. Around the turn of the last century (that would be 2000, not 1900!), she managed to finagle moving to the Eastern Sierra, a mecca for those in love with the mountains. It was during long backcountry treks that Ann’s writing evolved. Unlike some who see the backcountry as an excuse to drag friends and relatives along, Ann prefers solitude. Stories always ran around in her head on those journeys, sometimes as a hedge against abject terror when challenging conditions made her fear for her life, sometimes for company. Eventually, she returned from a trip and sat down at the computer. Three months later, a five hundred page novel emerged. Oh, it wasn’t very good, but it was a beginning. And, she learned a lot between writing that novel and its sequel.

Around that time, a friend of hers suggested she try her hand at short stories. It didn’t take long before that first story found its way into print and they’ve been accepted pretty regularly since then. One of Ann’s passions has always been ecology, so her tales often have a green twist.

In addition to writing, Ann enjoys wilderness photography. She lugs pounds of camera equipment in her backpack to distant locales every year. A standing joke is that over ten percent of her pack weight is camera gear which means someone else has to carry the food! That someone is her husband. They’ve shared a life together for a very long time. Children, grandchildren and three wolf hybrids round out their family.

EXCERPT
CHAPTER 7
Night.  I was sure I heard my name being called beneath my bedroom window.  Running to check, I saw no one.  I tiptoed barefoot down the two flights of cold stone steps and out into the garden.  I didn’t need a lantern, because the moon was full.  It was huge, hanging in the sky.
At the far edge of the garden was a back door we had not used in years.  It was overgrown with leaves and vines.  In the moonlight, half-hidden, I spied a folded piece of cream paper poking through a crack in the wood.  I ran to retrieve it, plucking it out eagerly. Something sweet released its fragrance at my touch.
Tucking my secret message into the folds of my nightgown, I raced back through the garden, up the steps, and back into my bedroom.  I locked the door and began to read.
My beautiful angel—your skin white like alabaster, your black eyes reflecting only sweetness, your curious and lively spirit—
As promised, I have copied out something for you to read.  It is a poem by Dante.  It tells the story of a pilgrim, a wanderer.  He is the poet, who travels down to hell and then up to paradise in a journey inspired by his muse, Beatrice. 
          In this verse I’ve copied out for you, the poet finds two lovers wrapped in each other’s arms for eternity.  Their names are Paolo and Francesca, and he asks them for the story of their early love.  How did they recognize its first signs?

But tell me, in the time of gentle sighs,
with what, and in what way did Love allow you
to recognize your still uncertain longings? 

Someday I will share the rest of the poem with you, and tell you about their fate together.  But tonight, I simply want to ask, when will I be made a happy man and see you alone . . . ?
                                                                                      G.C.    
          I held his words to my heart and kissed the top of the page.  “Soon,” I whispered to him in the moonlit night.  “Soon.”

Virtual Tour - Swept Into Love (Ryders, #5) by Melissa Foster

One night changes everything, putting their friendship—and their love—on the line.
Swept Into Love
The Ryders, #5
by Melissa Foster
Releasing August 16th 2017
World Literary Press
 
The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SWEPT INTO LOVE (The Ryders, #5) . . . The time has finally come for the one Ryder we have seen and heard throughout the series thus far. Gage. He a man that cares and loves fully. He had made a commitment to the one woman that he knew would make his life all that and more. Sally. She on the other hand just wanted a friend and father figure for her then teenaged son. Now, much time has passed and Gage still wants the one woman that makes his world brighter. Sally torn between his friendship and connection to her son and the chance at having something more and risking losing so much more.

Gage and Sally have been on this ride for a long time. They have a friendship that exceeds convention. They have a connection that had only grown more over time. Friends to lovers have a journey ahead of them that only to two of them will be able to completely understand. The joy, laughs, tears, passion, excitement, contentment and more accompanies both Gage and Sally as they head out for this out-of-town assignment. This trip out-of-town was much needed to allow for the good things to spark to life.
Ms. Foster delivered another engaging, alluring, entertaining, well-written and developed read that contains old and new characters. There’s deep emotional aspects, light cheerful aspect, heart-warming aspects, and she maintains a connective balance through it all.

These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.”

It’s been years since Sally Tuft’s husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she’d ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that’s simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.


Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship—and their love—on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.

 

Sally Tuft awoke to a freight train running through her head and the worst cotton mouth she’d ever experienced. She lay on her back, eyes closed, trying to remember what happened last night after the conference she’d attended. Thank God what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, because she didn’t need her boss finding out she got rip-roaring drunk. She rolled onto her side, coming face-to-face with hot whiskey breath. Her eyes flew open and she bolted upright, clutching the sheet to her chest. Her heart pounded wildly as she took in the gorgeous sandy-haired man lying next to her. Oh shit! Shit, shit, shit!
No. This can’t be happening.  
She slammed her eyes shut, trying to calm her mounting panic by breathing deeply, but that made her head hurt even worse.
Her eyes opened slowly, roving over Gage Ryder’s scruffy jaw and the full lips she’d fantasized about so many times she should be arrested. This was bad. Very bad. Gage had been her best friend and co-worker since her husband was killed in a skiing accident several years ago. And worse, he was her son’s confidant. The man whom Rusty went to with problems his father was no longer there to help him with.
Her gaze trailed over his broad shoulders and muscular chest as realization set in. She bit her lower lip, holding her breath as she lifted the sheet. Please let me have something on. At least underwear. The pit of her stomach twisted at the sight of her closer-to-forty-than-thirty, less-than-perky bare breasts, and stomach that had never quite regained its elasticity after having her now twenty-year-old son. Oh God!
Gage rolled onto his back, and her eyes were drawn to the formidable bulge lifting the sheets. Look away. Look away.
She couldn’t look away. He’d made his feelings for her clear without ever actually spelling them out. Would he mind if she looked? Oh God! I should mind! She needed to force those desires back into Ignore mode. Closing her eyes and gritting her teeth, she tried to do just that. But the urge to look was too strong, and they popped open again, drinking in every hard inch of him.
His left arm stretched over his head, coming to rest on the pillow. The other reached beneath the sheet and adjusted himself. Her nipples prickled to tight points. Now was not the time to get turned on, but she couldn’t stop staring as he sleepily pushed the sheet down his chest, revealing solid abs she’d seen a million times—but never once in bed. They were sexier than when he was playing basketball or chopping wood to heat his home. Oh God, she loved to watch him chop wood.
Her eyes moved to the other wood in sight. She heard a whimpering sound and realized it came from her. She snapped her mouth shut. She had to get out of there before he woke up and realized what they’d done.
What if he remembered what happened—or didn’t—last night? She was never going to drink again. Not in this lifetime, and definitely not with Gage Ryder.
She clutched the sheet and slid to the edge of the bed, struggling to dredge up memories of last night from the muddled recesses of her mind, but her head was spinning. At least her hangover had taken a backseat to the reality of having slept with Gage. He rolled toward her as she stepped quietly from the bed. The sheet caught beneath him and pulled from around her.  She gasped, her hands darting to cover all her private parts as Gage’s amused blue eyes opened and followed her frantic hands. A slow smile crept across his gorgeous face. She needed more hands! She yanked the sheet from the bed and turned around.
“Don’t look!” she yelled as she tried to wrap it around her. “Oh my God. Gage!”
“Sally…?”
“Don’t say a word. Wait. Please tell me we didn’t have sex. Just…” She shook her head and spun around, bringing Gage and all his naked glory into full view. For a second she was struck mute, her jaw hanging open. His thick arousal lay nestled between powerful thighs, on a manicured tuft of dirty-blond hair.
“See something you want?” Gage said with a chuckle, snapping her brain into gear.
“You’re naked!” She spun around again, breathing so hard she feared she might pass out.
“You whipped the sheet off me,” he said far too casually.
I’m naked!”
“I see that, and I prefer you without the sheet.”
“Gage!” She huffed. “Put a pillow over yourself! Cover that thing up.”
He sighed loudly and she heard the rustling of the pillow.
“Okay, Salbird. I’m covered, but given that we’re both naked, I’m pretty sure you got more than an eyeful last night.”
