~~Review~~ Stolen Fire by Julie Wetzel


Title: Stolen Fire (Kindling Flames #4)
Author: Julie Wetzel
Publisher: Crimson Tree Publishing
Publish Date: March 3, 2015
Genre: New Adult/Paranormal/Romance
Page Count: 261

Blurb:

Night. A time of quiet, of peace, of rest, and now, a time of terror.
With an uncontrolled vampire plaguing the city, the Vampire Council of Brenton once again calls on Darien Ritter for help.
Overwhelmed with the issues of a new menagerie and plans for his wedding, Darien still manages to step up and answer the call. The only problem is, he suddenly finds himself a little too… human.

Review:

In this installment, we follow Vicky and Darien as they race to save his immortality. Vicky steps up and proves that she can handle being a vampire bride. Normally we see her as the assistant or just Darien's human girlfriend. This time around she shows that she can hold her on in a crisis. One of the things I love about this series is that Vicky is a strong female lead. Normally you would get a weak damsel in distress or a male hating female. Vicky is neither. She shows time and time again that she can stand toe to toe with Darien's enemies and hold her own. In this book she does have to make decisions that she normally would not. Thanks to fantastic writing, you can see her emotions pop off the page as well as her hesitancy to go through with her decisions. 
Darien shows a different side of himself in this book. He is more laid back, more inviting in this book. I think almost being human again works well for him. He seemed to let go of some of the emotional walls that he had built up. no matter what though, Darien is my favorite vampire. 
We see more of Elliot and Vanessa in this book. I hope that we get more of them. I think that they would make a great couple too. 
Wetzel, again has written another great book. I love that she never lets you guess who the villain is in the book. You don't really figure it out till close to the end. Her writing keeps the reader entertained from beginning to end. Counting each book with the same lead characters, she is still able to create a unique and intriguing storyline. 
Overall, I loved this book and it is a great addition to this series. I look forward to reading more books from this author in the future.

Something is definitely wrong. After someone attempts to kill her, Kristen realizes there is more at risk than a few hundred dollars. She may be betting with her life.

~~Review~~ Smoke Rising by Julie Wetzel


Title: Smoke Rising (Kindling Flames #3)
Author: Julie Wetzel
Publisher: Crimson Tree Publishing
Publish Date: December 19, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance/New Adult
Page Count: 343


Is there such a thing as a normal life when you live with an ancient vampire and a temperamental hellhound? 
Victoria Westernly was just starting to think so. With Samhain just around the corner and the promise of a Halloween Ball, her life was looking good. Even the addition of a new master vampire couldn’t bring her down. 
When Victoria and Darien become the victims of a series of unfortunate accidents, they know something’s up. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. But, the question is… who is burning what?


Following the story from the first two books, Smoke Rising carries the characters into the next stage of their lives. Darien and Vicky have been living with their lovable yet weird "pet" Zak, the fae. Life is going great until someone sets out to destroy it. Wetzel writes an entertaining and thrilling story that captures your attention from the start. The characters that we fell in love with previously, become more defined as the story progresses. 
I found that Darien seemed to be in the forefront more in this book. We get to know him more in this one. He seems like this dark character but in this book we get to see his emotional side. Occasionally he is funny too. 
One of the things I liked about this book was how Vicky and Darien's romance evolved. It went from this boss and employee arrangement, to something really beautiful. 
I am not sure how many ways I can say that I Love This Series. It is well written. Mature but is not too heavy. The author keeps a great balance. I highly recommend this series to any lover of this genre.

~~ARC Review~~ The Millionaire's Unexpected Proposal by Jane Peden


Title: The Millionaire's Unexpected Proposal
Author: Jane Peden
Publisher: Entangled Publishing 
Publish Date: March 31, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Page Count: 247


His marriage of inconvenience… 
Camilla Winthrop is about to do something she's never done in her life—she's about to ask a man to marry her. Not just any man. She hasn't seen Sam Flanagan in almost five years, after he coldly walked away from a passionate and intense two-week affair. Now Camilla is widowed and desperate…and marrying Sam is the only way she can protect their son. The son he never knew about. 
A hugely successful attorney in Miami, Sam certainly never expected to see the stunning Camilla come through his door again. Nor can he ignore the desire heating his blood. But after she tells him her situation, Sam is furious. He'll marry her, but under his terms. And he'll take everything, including Camilla in his bed…unless she can find a way to thaw the millionaire's icy heart once more.


The Millionaire’s Unexpected Proposal is a romance about second chances.  It starts off with the two lead characters meeting in a bar and hook up. They have a whirlwind romance and go separate ways. Fast forward five years, the woman shows up with his love child. She is in desperate need to be married to protect the child. Instead of rooting for Camilla, I found myself not liking her. I get that she had her reasons for what she did but I cannot find that connection with the character. Camilla does seem like a bad person but she just wasn’t well written. 
Sam is a brooding character. He is immediately upset with Camilla when he finds out the truth. He also is a character that you cannot connect with. He spends most of the book pissed off. The only person he is willing to listen to is Camilla’s sister. 
The writing is not extraordinary and in fact the book was predictable and kind of clichĂ©. There is no emotion that pops off the page making you feel what the characters feel. In the end I felt disappointed and empty. It is a good read for those moments when you need a guaranteed HEA. Otherwise, I don’t see this on my repeat read list. 



3 out of 5 Stars!
