Sure, everybody knows about the great heroes of legend. The ones people write songs about, the ones who lead the charge against the monsters that lay waste to cities or against an army of invaders that outnumber the good guys twenty to one—you know, the best heroes that money can buy. Trouble is, not everyone can afford their services.

Fortunately, the best heroes are not the only ones on the market.

Which is just what harried waitress Peg Brickner accidentally discovers after receiving an unusual—and, as it turns out, otherworldly—tip from a peculiar customer in the middle of one rotten dinner shift. Life on Earth is hard enough, but life in the magical world of Cantrial? Forget about it. Five minutes after being unsuspectingly yanked into it by an unscrupulous B-List talent scout for heroes, all Peg wants to do is get back home again before something in this crazy new world kills her or eats her with ketchup. Or both.

Trouble is, getting home may be a lot harder than leaving it was. Thanks to a bunch of greedy bureaucrats, Peg’s way home is about to be destroyed—unless she reluctantly joins a trio of magical misfits on a high-stakes heroes-for-hire mission in an attempt to recover stolen property before their rivals—or a roguishly charming thief—beat them to it.

She knew she should have called in sick today…

My Review: I get to read another book by Christine (:


If you've seen me review her other books, then you'll know this one is different from the others, but it's just as good.


We all know about heroes. They're strong, save people and cities. Fight off monsters and put those bad guys away. There are so many hero stories out there, along with different legends on that hero. 


Anywho, this story has a different take and I liked it. Peg, was having a rough shift. A talent scout comes and takes her into the world of Cantrial. Yeah, its really not all what Peg suspected, plus she wans't exactly thrilled to just have been yanked into the world. All she really wants is to go home. At least there, she won't worry about being killed with ketchup. Yes, I said ketchup. 


However, going back home is not easy. Nope, they made getting back home very difficult. So why not join a group of misfits on mission. A heroes for hire mission. All you have to do is beat your rival in doing whatever your mission is. Recover stolen property seems like such an easy task right? Well...you will be in store for some surprises. In the meantime, Peg really should have called in sick. She could have dealt with missing work and missing this lovely mission. 


Like I said, this is different from the other books I've read. But the story is still great. Everything you expect from Christine is there. She doesn't disappoint and had a real fun take on heroes! So worth the read.

Hero's for Hire Excerpt

Heroes for Hire --- excerpt

            “There,” Riley said, pointing ahead.  “In the trees.  That’s where they’ll be waiting.”
            Peg panted for breath and squinted in the direction that Riley pointed.  Something just behind the tree line made the trees rustle, something large.  She stiffened.  “What was that?”
            “What was what?”
            “That… that flash of green.”  At least, she thought it had been green.  The light was still poor this early in the morning.
            “Probably Masie.  She really ought to stay back and well out of view, but sometimes she gets curious.  Probably anxious to meet you.”
            “And Masie is a…?”
            But Riley was already moving again, leaving Peg little choice but to follow and resort to merely shooting dirty looks at the back of his head.  “Watch your step,” he cautioned as they neared the trees.  “Ground’s a bit uneven here.”
            His warning came a second too late, and Peg stumbled even as he spoke, landing on her hands and knees.  Picking herself up off the ground, she brushed dirt from her baggy new breeches and looked up to find a large reptilian face mere inches from her own.
            Peg shrieked and stumbled backwards only to trip and go sprawling onto her backside.  This was it.  Not even officially on the road yet, and already she was about to be eaten.  She would have screamed again, but her mouth was suddenly too dry to make any other sounds.  Cringing, she held her arms up in front of her face as if that would somehow protect her and delay the inevitable.  Yes, it was probably stupid and a complete waste of time, but with the toothy creature this close to her already, stupid was really all she had left.
            But it didn’t bite her.  Instead, the beast snorted softly and studied her with wide, curious eyes.  “Easy there, Masie,” Riley told her, chuckling and patting her on the nose.  “Give her a little breathing room.  They don’t have dragons where Peg comes from.”
            Dragons
            Peg remained frozen in place on the ground, her eyes and mouth open wide.  It really was a dragon, complete with scales, wings, and those very large teeth.  The only thing missing was a plume of smoke and fire coming from each nostril.  Maybe she would get to see that later, but she wasn’t sure she wanted to.
            The creature was larger than an elephant although much slimmer, and its scales were a delicate shade of greyish green with flecks of brown and black that no doubt served as excellent camouflage.  Its wings, though—something seemed to be wrong with them.  Squinting again, Peg peered more closely, her heart still pounding but perhaps not quite so fast as before since Riley was still petting the dragon without any apparent fear of being eaten.  One of the wings looked as large as one might expect to see on an animal this size, but the other was ridiculously small, and there was no way it could possibly fly with wings like those.
            The dragon hung its head then as if embarrassed by her scrutiny, and Peg quickly stopped her gaping and looked away.
            “Look sharp, folks,” Riley said, reaching out a hand to help Peg to her feet, and she was too dazed to do anything but take it.  “Meet Trukner’s replacement, Peg Brickner.  Say hello, Peg.”
            She couldn’t have managed that single word right now no matter how hard she tried, but she did raise her hand in a feeble sort of wave that faltered before it even began.  She recognized Grodan when he trotted out from the shrubbery, still in his doggy chainmail, but she had no idea what to call the creature that followed him.  It looked like a cross between a squid and a very large centipede.  Four eyes waved at her from atop spindly eyestalks, and Peg had to muffle an exclamation.  It moved closer on its mass of tentacles as if to get a better look at her, and she took a wary step back, her eyes on the gooey trail the creature left behind itself.
            “Back, Kraak,” Riley ordered the creature.  “Mind your manners.  Humans have different notions of personal space than Nirategs do.”
            A small, metallic box that Peg noticed for the first time around its… neck, she finally decided, beeped as the thing named Kraak made sounds like the squishing of water-soaked tennis shoes.  “Sor-ry,” came a mechanical voice from the box a moment later.
            “Nirateg?” Peg repeated, her mouth still dry but finally capable of speech.  She swallowed.  “What’s the Nirateg idea of personal boundaries?”

            “Never mind,” Riley returned.  “Let’s just say you’d consider his way of saying hello to be a little invasive.  In fact, on some worlds it would be considered a felony.”  He rubbed his hands together briskly.  “Let’s have a round of introductions, shall we?”

How to Hang A Witch

How to Hang A Witch
by Adriana Mather

Book: How to Hang A Witch #1
Publisher: Random House
Pub Date: July 2016
Genre: Young Adult
Format: ARC
Source: Publisher
Book Links: Goodreads  Amazon  Book Depository

Salem, Massachusetts is the site of the infamous witch trials and the new home of Samantha Mather. Recently transplanted from New York City, Sam and her stepmother are not exactly welcomed with open arms. Sam is the descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the men responsible for those trials and immediately, she becomes the enemy of a group of girls who call themselves The Descendants. And guess who their ancestors were?

If dealing with that weren't enough, Sam also comes face to face with a real live (well technically dead) ghost. A handsome, angry ghost who wants Sam to stop touching his stuff. But soon Sam discovers she is at the center of a centuries old curse affecting anyone with ties to the trials. 

Sam must come to terms with the ghost and find a way to work with the Descendants to stop a deadly cycle that has been going on since the first accused witch was hanged. If any town should have learned its lesson, it's Salem. But history is about to repeat itself.

My Review: Witch trials...one of my favorite subjects. There have been so many version of the trails, and this author nailed it! 

Sam is dropped into Salem. Left New York to live in Mass. Usually you go around and get to know the people. But that doesn't need to happen, in fact Sam isn't welcomed. Being related to someone who started the trails....well that doesn't tend to go well. Oh want to add on? Sam can see ghosts, is part of a curse and well things just get all kinds of weird. 

Sam and the Descendants need to work together. They need to put aside all the hate if they want to stop this deadly cycle. Otherwise they should just stand by and watch history repeat itself over and over. It will also be worse for those who have ties to the trials. 

As things get moving, the details go to another level of amazing. I loved how everything turned out, the characters, world building, twists, it's just one of my favorite Witchy books of the year! I don't typically tell you to drop everything, but this is one of those books that you need to read now!

EXCERPT:
Her next move was brazen as she stood on tippy toes and entwined her arms about his neck. She drew his head down to touch her lips to his, and he did not resist.
His hands roamed up the small of her back, following the seductive outline of her waistline, leaving a blazoned trail of sensations in their quake.
Her insides quivered as his mouth warmly opened and his tongue worked its way insider her mouth.
He took her face between his hands and aroused her with long, ravishing kisses, bringing to life a passion that had been dormant for far too long.

The cold Winter night did not chill her wrapped in the warmth of his embrace. Even the silvery moon that glowed overhead cast a radiance over the newly fallen snow and the couple.
She hungered for more than just kisses and knew that he could carry her to heights of ecstasy she never experienced before. She knew by the way he kissed and worked his magic over her that he was a man expert in loving a woman.
Pamela forced herself to sever their tie. As much as she wanted him in her bed, she could not rush into anything she would be sorry for later.
“You sure know how to kiss a woman, Gavin Templeton,” she exhaled as she fumbled in her purse for her keys.
“The pleasure is all mine,” he rasped.
He lifted her chin with the tip of his finger and looked at her warmly.
“I’d love to see you again, that is, if you feel the same”
“I would love nothing more. I’m starting back to work on Monday and going to take it slow at first. My schedule needs to be reworked and I have to prepare for a major case I’m committed to.”
Pamela looked away shyly for a brief moment and gathered Gavin’s hands in her own, drawing them to her breast.
“Law has been my life 24/7. I would love a reason to change that. I’m a little mystified by the way fate has brought us together. I also don’t want to rush things between us. I hope you don’t mind.” Her eyes pleaded for his understanding. “There’s so much I don’t know about you, and you me.”
Gavin grasped her by her shoulders and kneaded them softly.
“I’m not a love them and leave them kind of guy. I’m attracted to you and not because you saved my life. I was drawn to you the moment I laid eyes on you. I’m fine with slow. I can be very patient when I have to.”
Pamela’s eyebrow quirked playfully.
“Well,” he interjected, joking. “To some degree.”
She laughed and he drew her into his arms. When she tilted her head back to gaze into his eyes, he captured her lips once again and she moaned softly with pleasure.
He broke the kiss and smiled knowingly at the sound she made.
“Slow, hah?”
She jabbed his rib playfully and replied, “You keep kissing me like that, and that could change.”



Author Bio:
Please feel free to visit my website http://www.romanceauthorcynthiaroberts.com to read some wonderfully touching reviews and the direct links to them all.
My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family. It wasn't until much later in life I actually took up the pen to write and my first historical romance, Wind Warrior was born. I don't fit into one specific genre. When the ideas start to flow, lord only knows what category they'll fit into **wink wink **
I wish I could have gotten to this point in my career much sooner rather than later but, life simply got in the way far too many times. Because of those multiple detours, however, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer and can draw upon those painful moments in my past when I need to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel.
It is my hope my readers walk away with not just an entertaining read but the importance in knowing, "Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities."

The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden

The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden
by Jessica Sorensen

BookThe Coincidence #1
Publisher: Forever
Pub Date: August 2013
Genre: New Adult
Format: Print
Source: Borrowed


For Kayden, suffering in silence was the only way to survive. If he was lucky, he could keep his head down, do as he was told, and make it through the day. But one night it seemed like his luck-and his life-might finally end... until an angel named Callie appeared just in time to rescue him.

Callie has never believed in luck. Not since her twelfth birthday when everything was taken from her. After the worst was over, she locked up her feelings and vowed never to tell anyone what happened. Now, six years later, she continues to struggle with the painful secret that threatens to consume her.

When fate lands Kayden and Callie at the same college, Kayden is determined to get to know the beautiful girl who changed his destiny. Quiet and reserved, Callie still fears letting anyone else into her world. But Kayden is certain that Callie has come back into his life for a reason. And the more he tries to be a part of her life, the more he realizes that, this time, it's Callie who needs to be saved...


My Review: I loved this book! These two characters were made for each other, it just took a little time to get there.

Kayden looks perfect on the outside. Good looks, great football player, and overall great person. But under those clothes he's covered in scars and he's dying on the inside. For years he's been beaten and it doesn't seem to be an end in sight, until Callie comes along one night and saves his life. 

Callie used to be someone everyone got along with and after something that scarred her for life, she changed. Wore big clothes, chopped of her hair and just changed. Everything thought she was a freak and no one talked to her anymore. She was always alone and never told anyone what happened to her.

What ends up happening is Callie leaves for college early, and a few months later Kayden ends up going to the same school. The run into each other and Kayden doesn't think its  her. She looks like Callie, but this time her hair is longer, she's wearing clothes that fit her and looks beautiful. Once he realized this, he wanted to know her. But Callie still doesn't like/trust people and right now her friend Seth has been the one to be there for her, bring her out of her shell and is the only one who knows her dark secret.

Given some time, Callie and Kayden grow found of each other and soon they are finally together. Things are going wonderfully, they are happy, doing well in school and nothing could go wrong. Well things are going to take a turn. When they a arrive home during a holiday break, things were okay until Kayden started to get hit again. This time Callie was there and Kayden stood up for himself and planned to leave and never come back. The night was going just fine after that and they are just perfect. Soon after, Callie tells Kayden her secret and that leads to more trouble and to an ending I didn't expect. 

I loved this book, and already diving into the next to see where these two are right now.

Book: Royal Circle #1
Publisher: Viking
Pub Date: May 2012
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Print

Book Links: Goodreads  Amazon  Book Depository

In the court of King Henry VIII, nothing is free--
and love comes at the highest price of all.
 

When Kitty Tylney's best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII's heart and brings Kitty to court, she's thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat's shadow, Kitty's now caught between two men--the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat's meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.

My Review: I really wanted to like this book. I love this history period, the idea of the book sounded good and I just had to try it. But it fell short for me.

The characters we're okay. I didn't hate them, but I didn't really love them. A little more background on them would have helped me liked them more. The story also seemed too slow for me. It did pick up after a few chapters, but then it just lost my interest again.

So sadly this ended up a DNF.

Format: Print

Book Links: Goodreads  Amazon  Book Depository

Agnes Wilkins is standing in front of an Egyptian mummy, about to make the first cut into the wrappings, about to unlock ancient (and not-so-ancient) history.

Maybe you think this girl is wearing a pith helmet with antique dust swirling around her.

Maybe you think she is a young Egyptologist who has arrived in Cairo on camelback.

Maybe she would like to think that too. Agnes Wilkins dreams of adventures that reach beyond the garden walls, but reality for a seventeen-year-old debutante in 1815 London does not allow for camels—or dust, even. No, Agnes can only see a mummy when she is wearing a new silk gown and standing on the verdant lawns of Lord Showalter's estate, with chaperones fussing about and strolling sitar players straining to create an exotic "atmosphere" for the first party of the season. An unwrapping.

This is the start of it all, Agnes's debut season, the pretty girl parade that offers only ever-shrinking options: home, husband, and high society. It's also the start of something else, because the mummy Agnes unwraps isn't just a mummy. It's a host for a secret that could unravel a new destiny—unleashing mystery, an international intrigue, and possibly a curse in the bargain.

Get wrapped up in the adventure . . . but keep your wits about you, dear Agnes.

My Review: I tried to like this book, but that didn't happen.

I just couldn't get into the story at all.

PublisherAtheneum 
Pub Date: June 2011
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Print

Book Links: Goodreads  Amazon  Book Depository

Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia. Like the fingers on a hand--first headstrong Olga; then Tatiana, the tallest; Maria the most hopeful for a ring; and Anastasia, the smallest. These are the daughters of Tsar Nicholas II, grand duchesses living a life steeped in tradition and privilege. They are each on the brink of starting their own lives, at the mercy of royal matchmakers. The summer of 1914 is that precious last wink of time when they can still be sisters together--sisters that link arms and laugh, sisters that share their dreams and worries, and flirt with the officers of their imperial yacht.
But in a gunshot the future changes for these sisters and for Russia.
As World War I ignites across Europe, political unrest sweeps Russia. First dissent, then disorder, mutiny, and revolution. For Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, the end of their girlhood together is colliding with the end of more than they ever imagined.
At the same time hopeful and hopeless, naive and wise, the voices of these sisters become a chorus singing the final song of Imperial Russia. Impeccably researched and utterly fascinating, this novel by acclaimed author Sarah Miller recounts the final days of Imperial Russia with lyricism, criticism and true compassion.

My Review: I really wanted to like this book, I really did. In the end, I just couldn't finish it. 
I loved the sound of this book, and I liked it for the first few chapters, but then I just didn't care for the book anymore. There were too many POV, though I understand its based on the people who lived through this, but after a while I couldn't stand some of the girls. The world around them was great for while. But then it just died off for me. I ended up losing interest.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Weston Conrad is the best headhunter in the business. That handsome smile goes a long way towards convincing most people to trust him with their future.

I’m not most people. I’m his direct competition. And it doesn’t hurt to be just the kind of woman he’s been looking for.

I’m gonna flash you these legs, Weston Conrad.

I’m gonna wear low-cut shirts and micro-mini skirts.

I’m gonna dazzle you with wit and conversation and kiss those lips like they’re exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

So don’t hate me when you figure out my secret.

You understand, right? You’re Mr. Corporate and this is just business.

square_tell_me_you_missed_this


EXCERPT
Weston takes off his tie and begins unbuttoning his shirt. My eyes open a little wider. I watch every move. The way his fingers flip each button loose. The way his tanned and muscular chest flashes me as the shirt comes apart. That stupid Corporate grin on his face.
I sigh with frustration just as he takes the whole thing off and starts going for his belt.
Will Weston Conrad strip naked to swim?
Oh, yeah. You bet your ass he will. I called him Naked Man back when we were together. He has a thing for it.
“Come on, Tori. Let’s swim. You don’t need a suit. I’ve seen your goods.”
“First of all,” I say, crossing my arms and maintaining eye contact as the pants come down, “I’m not ‘goods.’ Second of all, I’m not giving you the pleasure of seeing me naked after you’ve been such an asshole.”
“When was I an asshole?”
He’s kidding, right? “All the time.”
“I’m just truthful, Victoria. You just can’t handle the truth.”
“I’m tired of fighting—” But I stop talking. Because yeah, he still looks amazing in those black boxer briefs he’s partial to.
“Did you miss him?” West asks.
“Who?” I say, forcing myself to look up at his face.
“Naked Man?”
I almost laugh, but catch myself just in time. “Weston—” But before I can get anything else out, he’s crossing the floor, I’m backing up, my hands are up, warning him to stay away, and I bump into the couch and fall back.
He stops in front of me, his goddamned bulge staring me in the face.
At least he’s not hard.
Ooops. Spoke too soon.
“Weston, stop it.”
“Come on,” he says, extending his hand. “We’re going to the beach.”
“I’m not getting naked with you.”
“I don’t need you naked. Your fucking skirt is so short you could wade in up to your thighs.” He shakes his hand at me, urging. “Come on.”
I close my eyes so I can stop staring at the bulge, stop imagining his hard cock and all the ways I’ve been intimate with it in the past, and take his hand, letting him pull me to my feet. His arm slips around my back and he pulls me into his chest. God, I can feel his fucking dick against my hips.
“Victoria,” he says in my ear. “You’ve missed me,” he says, switching to the other one.
I wait for what comes next. It’s a thing he always did with me when I was on the verge of something. Panic, or sadness, or whatever comes with all the things we went through.
He would stand behind me, both hands squeezing my shoulders. His mouth would go to work on my earlobe, and my neck, and my mouth. Then his fingers would dip down into my bra to squeeze my breasts and pinch my nipples.
We’d always have sex after that. Always. It drove me crazy.
But before I can say anything—No, we’re not doing that, or, Back off, mister, I’m not yours—he backs away and he’s heading for the door, tugging me along.
I sigh, missing his attention so much in that unused moment.

In Dreams

In Dreams

Book: Stand Alone
Publisher: Speak
Pub Date: January 2014 
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Print

Book Links: Godoreads  Amazon  Book Depository

In the land of nightmares, she finds the man of her dreams...
He haunts her in her dreams.
She is always searching, looking for the man who calls her from afar, a disembodied voice who knows everything about her.
But when she discovers the unimaginable secret her family has hidden for so long, her dreams—and her nightmares—invade her reality.
Her true love beckons, but the terrors await her. . . . Can she find him in time, or will their love—and her life—be destroyed?

Sixteen-year-old Iris has a recurring dream a long corridor of many doors, and behind each door a hidden world—some magical, some terrifying. But always she is searching for the man who calls to her—the man of her dreams—who knows everything about her, who stirs feelings in her she’s never felt before. When she discovers her father is actually the god of dreams, her nightmares and dreams follow her into reality, with both frightening and romantic results. Hunted by the god of nightmares, stalked by the horrifying creatures of the underworld, Iris must try to navigate both her worlds, as she tries to finally be with Sebastian, the man of her dreams. Can she triumph over the dangers that have haunted her forever, and be with Sebastian, or will terrors ultimately destroy them both?
 

My Review:  This was a refreshing read after my NA binge. At first it was slightly slow and I was ready to give up on this book. But about halfway it got interesting and then had  hooked. 

Iris has been having the same dream for a long time. She's always in this hallway surrounded by doors and a guy's voice. After a few chapters it seems repetitive, and then there is finally a face to the voice. Things start to pick up, her dreams are becoming real, and next thing you know, you're finally hooked.

When her dreams start to become real, Isis starts to freak out, but no matter what her best friend believes her about her dreams and about being a half-goddess. Yup turns, out there is a reason for her mom to always be asleep and  Isis having these dreams. Her dad ends up being the god of dreams. 


Once the god of nightmares figures that his brother had a kid with a human, he tries to get rid of her. He is not happy, builds an army and that's when Isis's dad comes back into the picture more. A battle will break out, Isis gets to see the man of her dreams in person, gains family and finally has everything she's wanted for a family.
