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.

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

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


By Kate Bateman


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

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.
