There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

My duty to Death drives me forward. I've never once strayed from my path – not even when the future seemed uncertain. However, Maeve's intelligence, cunning and determination challenges me in ways I never imagined. Finding out what she knows is the key to learning how to conquer our enemy. The Dark Fae breathes new life into me unlike anything I've ever known. For Maeve, I will risk trusting the Dark. For her...I will battle darkness itself.


I was without a doubt mesmerized by this story between Maeve the Merciless and Bradach the Reaper with its well described battle scenes and depth to the storyline.

Author Donna Grant continues creating one of a kind stories that never cease to amaze me and is one of the reasons that I continue to read everything she writes.

Maeve is a strong dynamic female warrior who can hold her own with any enemy but it was so heartbreaker watching her deal with someone she loves who betrayed her. What I admired about her character was her integrity while being a dark and how she was admired by so many in higher positions than herself.

For a male hero, Bradach didn't stand out as much as Maeve did but he was intriguing and the perfect match for her. He was a strong silent type and very qualified to help protect her but personally I wanted more alpha from him.

This was a great read and I really enjoy it and recommend it to everyone who enjoys paranormal romance.

This is a 4.5 STAR read.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

5 STAR READ Dark Alpha's Awakening by Donna Grant

Sportochick's Musings ~ Cael and Death aka Erith are explosive in their interactions with each other.




Dark Alpha's Awakening

Reaper #7

by Donna Grant


Find The Book At ~ Amazon | B&N | Goodreads
Publisher ~ St. Martin's Press
Genres ~ Paranormal Romance


There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

Serving Death and the Reapers has been my life for centuries. I’ve always put my duty before everything, even my yearning for Death. But now, she’s fading – our foe is bent on destroying her and he will stop at nothing until he does. Death holds the key to our survival. I will do everything in my power to stop her from disappearing. For her, I will ensure we have the best fighting chance. For her…I will cross the divide keeping us apart.


I have been anxiously waiting for this book between Cael and Death aka Erith because their explosive interactions with each other on the pages in previous Reapers books to this series. After each book I read I kept thinking I hope these two get a happy ending.

This book fully explains who Erith is and how she came to be. The reader will get a clear picture of why she lives her life as she does and what the purpose for the Reapers is. This is thrilling for me because I wondered about her previous life every time she appeared in a book. For me a strong female main character is always a pleasure to read but I also love when they are sensitive without appearing weak.

Cael has been my favorite of the Reapers. As their leader he instantly drew my attention. What was intriguing with him was how he dealt with his feelings for Erith. I know this is a book and fantasy but his abstaining centuries because of his love for Erith sure warms a girl’s heart and makes her believe fantasies can come true.

Our villain Bran is still very dominant in this book as he keeps getting more and more powerful while Erith keeps getting weaker. 

This book is also a learning lesson on not waiting so long to tell someone how you feel because someday they may be gone and you will have everlasting regret.

This is a 5 STAR read.

Wow great cover revealed on THIS EARL OF MINE By Kate Bateman and St. Martin's


THIS EARL OF MINE

By Kate Bateman


 THIS EARL OF MINE 

St. Martin’s Paperbacks; Available October 29, 2019, $7.99


Description:
In a desperate bid to keep her fortune out of her cousin’s hands, shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed marries a condemned criminal in Newgate prison. The scoundrel’s first kiss is shockingly heated, but Georgie never expects to see her husband again. Until she spots him across a crowded ballroom.
Notorious rogue Benedict Wylde never expected a wife. He was in Newgate undercover, working for Bow Street. To keep their marriage of convenience a secret, Wylde courts Georgie in public, but the more time they spend together, the more their attraction sparks.
Could an heiress with the world at her feet find happiness with a penniless rake?

Author Bio:
Kate Bateman, (also writing as K. C. Bateman), is the #1 bestselling author of Regency, Victorian, and Renaissance historical romances, including the Secrets & Spies series: To Steal a Heart, A Raven’s Heart and A Counterfeit Heart. All her books feature her favorite feisty, intelligent heroines, (badasses in bodices!) wickedly inappropriate banter, and sexy, snarky heroes you want to both strangle and kiss.

Kate wrote her first historical romance in response to a $1 bet with her husband who rashly claimed she'd 'never finish the thing.' She gleefully proved him wrong. When not traveling to exotic locations 'for research', she leads a not-so-secret double life as a fine art appraiser and on-screen antiques expert for several TV shows in the UK, each of which has up to 2.5 million viewers. She splits her time between Illinois and her native England, and writes despite three inexhaustible children and that number-loving husband who still owes her that dollar.

*Previously published in The USA Today Bestselling Royal & Reckless Set


WOW, this was not what I thought it would be. It was very good and not a predictable read or the same old, same old.

In this story the Authors create a world where make believe becomes reality with a new spin. Rich with detail the reader will be enthralled with both of the male main characters as well as hard working Liz and her younger brother Kyle.

Prince Ben is just dreamy, gentle and caring and his attention to Kyle was heartwarming. He has a heart of gold as well as an obsessive behavior that would turn off some women and draw others in. I fell for him in the first few pages and his attention and care for Liz put him as the front runner of the two men for her heart.

Lucas, Prince Ben's bastard brother, is dark, unfriendly and dangerous. He spends his off time drinking to deal with his horrible situation but don't let that distract you from falling for him. His hidden secrets are unusual and presented in a manner that will intrigue any reader. To be honest he drew me in quickly because he seemed like the bad boy. And we all know how women love the bad boy.

Liz is my kind of intelligent strong resourceful woman. Having grown up with a troubled childhood she was protective of her younger brother doing whatever it takes to keep him safe. Sometimes three jobs but never using her body. So I never looked at her as someone with no values willing to do anything for a buck. Her values come through at the end of the book and the decision she made while talking to the Queen was superb.

Though I am not sure that the reader will be shocked with the ending it sure was tear worthy.

I give this 4 stars for being a well plotted paranormal love story that made me cry with happiness.
