“A great anthology with some unexpected interpretations. Happy ever after comes in so many ways, sometimes sweets and sometimes so sexy that you must read in private but always worth the wait.” EMMA GREENFIELD. ROMANTIC FICTION LIST
Whether contemporary, magical fantasy or paranormal, they’re all romantic, passionate, sometimes funny always moving.
You know that feeling you get deep inside your gut? The one that tells you something is dangerous, or something is meant to be. The one that sees the bad or good in a person before they even utter a single syllable to you. The one that rattles your very soul, making you question your own sanity because you know you must be completely mad for having such an intense connection to someone you’ve just met. That’s the feeling I had when I first saw him. It was so much more than his good looks, his charming personality and his caring ways. It was something unexplainable and unimaginable.
The first time we met, I felt it, and I was pretty certain he did too. Familiar strangers searching for someone, or something deep inside the other. Maybe I was losing my mind or maybe I was just caught up in a daydream of how I wished my life could be. But from the first moment I had gotten caught up in his gaze, I knew I had stared into those pale-blue eyes once before…maybe not in this lifetime, but perhaps a lifetime before.
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I love creating deep characters who you will love or love to hate.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? My happy place is a seat by the ocean with my feet in the sand or on the busy streets of New York City. You will more than likely find one of these places as the setting for most of my books.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me – yes, even if you don’t like it!

She thought she could run from her mate. Then he lassoed her.
Riley decided years ago that she would be better off on her own, but when the alpha of the local pack finds out there’s a lone wolf causing trouble on his turf he takes matters into his own hands.
As far as Cameron Nichols is concerned, Riley will be joining his pack whether she likes it or not. Her only choice will be whether to submit to his authority with or without needing to be stripped bare and spanked over his knee until she is kicking and crying and promising obedience. When she chooses the latter, the Navy SEAL turned cowboy is more than happy to oblige.
But Cameron knows instantly that Riley isn’t just a feisty female in need of an alpha’s firm hand. She is his mate, and she knows it too, despite her best efforts to deny it. No matter how many times she tries to run, he will always chase her down, punish her thoroughly, and then mount and claim her so roughly that all she can do is scream her helpless, shamefully intense pleasure into the pillow as her body betrays her and surrenders ever more completely to his demands.
“Some of them may not make it even if you don’t,” Catherine said softly. “My sister among them. I know how you feel. One of those women is my baby sister. I hang on to the fact that there is a small, but growing, network of packs who are moving not just to free those who have been enslaved, but to shut down their ability to enslave them in the first place. I believe with my whole heart that we will put an end to this and that those who have been responsible will die.”
Riley looked at her with curiosity.
“Not be brought to justice?” she asked.
Catherine shook her head. “Justice is a fine and noble thing and I applaud those who seek it. I want revenge. I want them dead. My goal is a lot easier to achieve.”

Title: Dark Days: Semester 2
Author: Liz Meldon
Series: Dark Days Duet
Genre: Enemies-to-Lovers Paranormal Romance
A vampire desperate for a brighter future. A wolf shifter eager to forget the past.
A killer closing in.
Still reeling from the events of December 31st, wolf shifter Emma Kingsley stumbles into the new year knowing that nothing will ever be the same. Her sanctuary—her territory—is falling to pieces around her. Danger in the forest. Danger in the village. Danger at her door.
This time of year, wolf’s in season.
The cruel promises of two rogue vampires cling to her like a second skin, but so does the possibility for something more with the vampire who saved her life. Despite her growing feelings, she knows in her heart that Calder is a part of this madness.
And when the truth comes to light, will she ever be able to trust him again?
Forced to unite for the sake of their beloved boarding school, two former enemies are torn between doing what is necessary…
And following their hearts.
The fresh start that vampire Calder so desperately craved is shot straight to Hell when the past comes back to bite him. Had circumstances been different, he would have fallen back on old habits—and run.
But now that Emma is involved, he knows the game has changed. A price must be paid, and if it keeps her alive, Calder Holloway will pay it a thousand times over.
Even if that means forgetting his feelings for the beautiful shifter. Every. Last. One.
Because those messy, messy feelings are what got him into trouble in the first place.
In the dark days of winter, an ancient evil emerges from the shadows. Blood will be spilled. Lines will be drawn. Lives will be lost.
Only one thing is certain: no one is safe.
Not even creatures of the night.
Dark Days is a standalone enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance duet. While Book 1 has a cliffhanger, all will be resolved with a supernatural happily-ever-after in Book 2.
As soon as my hand settled over the nape of her neck, Emma bolted upright, shrugging me off. “You don’t have to… Just go, Calder, I’m fine.”
“No, you’re not.”
“Well,” she wiped at her cheeks, “that’s not on you to fix.”
“I’m not trying to.”
Oh, fuck it. I wrapped an arm around her shoulders, dragging her out from under Sampson and straight to me. Emma fought back, just as I knew she would, but not as hard as she could have—and less still when the tears started up again.
“Calder, just stop…”
I maneuvered her easily, lifting the shifter onto my lap, her back to my chest, both arms snapped tight around her in an embrace she couldn’t break even if she tried. And she tried. Emma pushed at my arms, drove her elbows into my ribs—weeping. She fought until she broke, until she went limp against me, body wracked with sobs, her nails sinking into my forearms like a steel bear trap. Pain flickered at the indents. I ignored it, all of it, and just held her, my face buried in her hair, drowning in lavender.
Our hearts beating as one.
Liz is a Canadian author who grew up in the Middle East. She has a degree in Bioarchaeology from Western University, and when she isn’t writing about her own snarky characters, she is reading about other people’s snarky characters, babying her herb garden, loitering on social media, or taking care of her furbabies.
Liz dabbles in both paranormal and contemporary erotic romance. Her paranormals are usually dark and angsty, and her contemporaries are stress-free smutfests, but you’ll find both full of feels. Most of all, she loves writing realistic characters in fantastical settings.

She wasn’t aware of her wet, clinging clothes. Her long hair, sticking to her skin. The melting hail or the dark night. She was only aware of one thing, and he was consuming her.
CONNOR REID is complex. An alpha, taller and stronger than anyone else, who has never lost a fight. But the truth is, this grizzly bear shifter is as sweet as a summer breeze and shy as a prairie dog. He never planned to stay in Shifter Town. Then something happened that rocked his world. Her name is LILY AMARETTO.
Lily hasn’t known much kindness in her life, and never from a man. When she accepts a job working for the scariest male she’s ever seen, it’s about survival and redemption. She doesn’t want to spend her life afraid of shadows, but did she really have to start with the most lethal man in existence? That’s exactly what Connor Reid seems like to her. But there are other new and indefinable feelings that he stirs. And the things he does to her in her dreams.
What do two shy souls do when they want each other badly, but aren’t quite sure how to make it happen?
Shifter Town is about to find out…
Bear Essentials is the fourth book in bestselling author Novalee Swan’s Shifter Town series. It features her trademark heat and emotional intensity and is perfect for fans of Nalini Singh, Lora Leigh and Shelley Laurenston.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holy moly… this book! It was the best of the series thus far and one of my favorite shifter books to date.
I literally waited a long time for this book. After reading the other books in the series, I was excited for this one the most. Unfortunately, it took a while to cross my path and even then, it was by coincidence. Doesn’t matter though because I thought it was worth the wait. I love all the characters in this series but Conner and Lily are my favorites so far. I can’t give one specific reason as to why that is, only that I loved them so much.
The writing is done well. The pace is good and the sexy scenes are hot! Yep, I wanted to be Lily in those moments. Lily was very shy. Truth is, I would say more wary than shy. And she had good reasons. There are definitely some dark elements in this book and some might feel triggered by them.
Connor was so good for Lily, a great match of “opposites attract.” Although I will say that while Connor was quiet and maybe shy when it came to Lily, when it was necessary, his beast came forward to love and protect her.
If you haven’t read the previous books in this series, I do recommend that. Yes, this book can be read as a standalone, however, I think you will enjoy the story more, especially having already met the several characters from past books that are present in this one.
We were given a bit of a teaser as to what’s to come in the next book. I really hope that will come out sooner rather than later.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
