Last of the Demon Slayers
Last of the Demon Slayers is the 4th in Ms. Fox’s Demon Slayer series staring Lizzie Brown.
Vacations are great and Lizzie, the Red Skull Witches, her talking Jack Russell Pirate and their adopted dragon Flappy all lounged at the Greek Estate of her Griffin Shape Shifting boyfriend Dimitri, but now it’s life back in the fast lane so Harley’s to the highway, but when she gets a frantic call for help from her biological dad (who she’s never met), things go to Hades in a handbasket, literally.
Angie Fox first caught my attention because she’s a local author here in my home town of St. Louis Missouri and I always like to patronize locals so I bought her first book “The Accidental Demon Slayer” and I never stopped laughing unless I was holding my breath waiting for the next awful thing to happen to poor Lizzie and then when the dog starts to talk, well let’s just say it’s been a true love affair ever since. And in this her latest in the life and times of Lizzie Brown she won’t let you down either and although the plot is straight out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales for adults she leads us down the merry path believing every word, it’s like she puts a hex on us. Then there’s her dialogue, be prepared for full belly roll laughs when you get a load of what Pirate says, it’s almost like she can get inside the dog’s head and really listen to him, the rest of the narrative is easy to read everyday jargon. Her characters are the real stars of the show they each have their personalities and she spotlights each and every one. Her heroine Lizzie is a one of a kind character one you want to be like but knowing what she goes through everyday of her life don’t want anything to do with either. Yes this is a romance and it’s a doozie and the love scenes are hot and spicy when demon slayer meets griffin lip locked and raring to go and even though they’re enough to light your socks on fire I don’t think any true romance fan would find anything offensive.
If this is your first introduction to Lizzie, I know you’ll do yourself a favor and order the backlist and if you’re a true Lizzie fan well you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

When Cara and Ares meet it’s fireworks of an epic proportion, the question is will they survive the explosion.
Ms. Ione is a master storyteller and it becomes obvious on the first page as she baits her audience and keeps them on the line until they’re well and truly reeled in by the end of the novel. She gives us a bigger than life plot the biggest good vs evil yet filled with dialogue that will keep her readers turning pages faster than you can say God of War and with characters straight out of our fondest dreams and worst nightmares. She presents to us characters that will make us gasp, make us gag and keep us up nights.

Will they make it, read on my friends for that’s for you to find out. The love scenes are exactly what you’d expect with an immortal, edgy, sensual, gritty and powerful, so if it’s cold outside you might want to open a window and if it’s hot for heaven’s sake turn down the air.
Be prepared to nail bite your way through this one, if you have a heart problem you might want to consult your doctor before reading. For the rest of you healthy human beings get ready for one heck of a ride.
Ms. Ione thank you for another start of a great series, my only disappointment is that I will have to wait just like the other mere mortals for the next instillation.

Operation Spank Me
Deep in the special ops of the military Finn Coleman has no time or desire for a committed relationship but naughty cybersex with e-pen pal Emma is just what the doctor ordered. Small town Emma Shields has no idea what she’s getting into when she lets friends talk her into e-pen palling with mystery military man Finn Coleman the chatting takes on a definite X rating. Keeping her identity a secret she refuses sending a picture so when he shows up on her doorstep unannounced how will she receive him.
Christina James gives us the first of a new erotic romance series with Operation Spank Me, her plot could be from any town any where USA where a lonely GI is paired with a pen pal only this author takes it two steps further into the e-rom universe where the pen pals exchange more than just the weather, and she adds a storyline climax that has nothing to do with sex but will certainly make her readers breathe a little harder because of. Her dialogue is everyday easy to read chit-chat mixed with the directness and politeness you’d expect from an Officer in the Forces added to this is very explicit sexual desires and commands. Her characters are very well developed and I enjoyed meeting and getting to know them from all the small town folks to her hero and heroine. Speaking of her hero Finn and her heroine Emma I also liked them and the author does a good job of promoting their lust at first sight, sex at every possible moment, turns into love everlasting very convincingly. The romance is fast paced and the readers will be able to see when lust turns to love for both Finn and Emma. The love scenes are scorching hot, smoking sexy and might be offensive for readers not into explorative and inventive sex scenes.
Fans of e-rom and also those who like a huge dose of hot sex with their genre romance would enjoy this read, also fans of the more traditional romance between one man and one woman would also like this. Not sure if your a fan of e-rom but want to dip your feet, this would be the perfect test. The next in the series will be Operation Tempt Me, check out the author's website here to find out more.

It’s long been debated whether Robin Hood actually existed, in a 14th Century poem he makes an appearance and in the 15th Century he’s been mentioned in ballads but whether he’s fact or fiction doesn’t seem to lessen his popularity as he’s been immortalized in print, song, poem and in present times on film. One of the reasons he stays alive for us is because of the astute storytelling ability of some of his tale-tellers like for example this one.
In this fictionalized tale of Robin Hood we may find the most truthful version yet in Outlaw, the first in a new series by Angus Donald first published in the UK.
Between the years 1188 and 1189 is the timeline in this novel, Robin is the still the ultimate outlaw, he’s still madly in love with lady Marie-Anne and is public enemy number 1 with the Sheriff of Nottingham, we’ll find all the usual cohorts too including Tuck and Little John in addition to a few new names to add to the lore.
Angus Donald brings us his vision of the ultimate noir hero in “Outlaw”, book number one in the Legend of Robin Hood series. He gives us the bigger than life hero/villain but shows him in a more realistic light, emphasizing the cruelty and barbarism of the 12th Century in the guise of authority, he shows us the leftover paganism melded with the Christian world and he shows us beauty the likes of which may no longer exist in this world and in fact showing a more factual Robin Hood who would have lived, loved and thieved in England in the late 1100’s. The novel is narrated by Alan Dale, Robin’s troubadour who was taken under wing as a young teen after being caught stealing in Nottingham and saved from certain death by the Sheriff. The dialogue is conversational, interesting and descriptive, readers will be able to picture Alan as an old man recounting his tumultuous youth, writing down the good, the bad and the ugly in excerpts as he also lets us know what’s going on in his present. The characters in this adventure go above and beyond in their portrayals as we get legend, myth and history in one piece of work.
This is far from the Robin Hood of our youths on TV or in the movies, this is truly an adult story with explicit scenes of violence and sex, so keep that in mind as you choose where to store it and who to share it with.
If you like your folklore with a huge slice of realism packed with danger, adventure, drama and action, Angus Donald is your man. If you love historical fiction with a bite this is for you. If you like your myths and legends on the wild side, here you go.
