Book Blitz: The Night Realm By Annette Marie


The Night Realm
(Spell Weaver #1)
By Annette Marie


Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

Clio would love nothing more than to go home. But as the illegitimate daughter of the nymph king, she's stuck in the human world, exiled until she can earn a place in the royal family. Then her half-bother offers her a chance to prove herself. All she has to do is acquire some magic ... by stealing it from the most dangerous spell weavers in the Underworld.

Lyre prefers to go unnoticed, which is a tricky objective for an incubus. He can’t hide his looks or his coveted spell weaving skills, but he's learned to mask his true intentions. As an unwilling pawn of the tyrannical Hades family, he stays alive by keeping one step ahead of his masters.

Now he's been assigned to watch over a visitor from the Overworld—one who's definitely hiding something. And with her unholy talent for triggering chaos and catastrophe, his job just keeps getting more perilous. Clearly, she'll never survive this world.

The thing is, he's no longer sure he can survive it either.

**Excerpt**

* The excerpt is in a scroll box.
As she stepped up to the last rack of shelves, she realized she hadn’t quite reached the end of the room. Tucked beyond the last shelf was another door—solid steel with no visible handle or lock. A web of magic crisscrossed the metal and complex runes filled four overlapping circles that shifted in a spiraling pattern.

She raised her fingers, keeping a safe several inches between her skin and the steel, and traced a glowing circle. That. She’d never seen anything quite like that before, but she knew it would react to touch. How it would react was another matter.

Intrigued, she leaned in closer, peering intently at the weaving’s under layers as she tried to work out what it did.

“Don’t touch that.”

Lyre’s voice shattered the silence right behind her. A squeak of fright escaped her as she jerked backward from the door. But, with her sudden movement, her hand went the wrong way. And her fingers, already so close to the door, slapped against the metal.

She cringed in terror, fully expecting the door to explode or her bones to melt or her skull to burst open. Nothing happened—until she tried to pull her hand away.

It was stuck.

She yanked on her hand, but it was fused to the metal as though her skin had been superglued in place.

“I told you not to touch it.”

She shot a glare at Lyre, standing two paces away. “I wouldn’t have touched it if you hadn’t startled me!”

He tucked his binder under his arm and shoved his hands in his pockets. “Why would you touch anything in here without permission?”

“I told you—” She bit off the words. “Unkey the spell.”

“Hmm.” He rocked back on his heels and a downright evil little smirk curved his lips. “Not sure I know how.”

“What?”

“That lovely bit of work predates me. It’s pretty complicated. Since you fancy yourself a spell expert, if you look here, you’ll see—”

He started to point, and she had no idea why, but she flinched back as though he might hit her. Her elbow bumped the door—and got stuck too.

Lyre’s hand paused. “Now look what you did.”

“I didn’t—you—get me off this!”

“As I was saying, you can see here that the weaving amalgamates anything that touches it, so it’s embedded into your skin now—”

“Get me off this door!” She jerked helplessly, her immobilized wrist and elbow twisting awkwardly.

“Well, I could pull you off, but you might lose some skin. Though, since the weaving is spreading into your flesh the longer you stand there, you might leave more than skin behind.”

Her heart kicked up to a full gallop from her growing terror. He, however, seemed perfectly calm. Amused, in fact. Humor danced in his amber eyes, softening the color to something closer to buttery gold.

He was laughing at her.

“Oh.” His eyebrows rose. “That’s quite the scowl.”

She gritted her teeth. “Get. Me. Off.”

Those irresistible lips curved up and her stomach dropped to her feet. The air heated. Why was she suddenly kind of dizzy? Shadows slid through his eyes, dimming the amber to shimmering bronze.

“Get you off?” he repeated, and his tones were all purring honey, warm and deep and sensual. “With pleasure.”

A hot blush swooped through her cheeks as she realized what she’d said. “I—I didn’t mean—I was—”

In a panic, she lurched away from him—right into the spelled door.

Book Tag: The Fictional Boyfriend Tag


This tag was originally created by Rachel (Rachel Reads) & Katie (The eBook Sphere) on Youtube. The concept is to pick a book boyfriend that could be described by the prompts below. I wasn't tagged to do this so I won't tag anyone either. Feel free to participate in this tag on your own blog!

The Most Romantic Boyfriend:
Beau from Beauty Dates The Beast (Midnight Liaisons #1) By Jessica Sims
It's been a few years since I've read this novel, but from what I can
remember this is the most a character has ever tried to be stereotypically
romantic (with flowers, chocolate, etc.).

(Linked to Goodreads)

The Dark & Moody Bad Boy With A Good Side:
Jax from The Eternal Balance Series By Jus Accardo
He's literally supposed to be evil, but chooses to be good.
It's can't get anymore dark or moody than that.

(Linked to my reviews)

The Paranormal Boyfriend:
Charles from the Alpha & Omega Series By Patricia Briggs
He's a werewolf who's caring, sweet and fierce. I also distinctly remember
him being half native american and having beautiful long dark hair. 

(Linked to my review)

The Boyfriend You Want To Tame:
Lyre from the Stone & Steel Series By Annette Marie
He's a secretive incubus that will do whatever he needs to do to
accomplish his goal and maybe save his friends in the end. 

(Linked to my review)

The Boy You Friend-Zoned:
Daemon from the Lux Series By Jennifer Armentrout.
He started off as the typical bad boy next door and eventually played
hot and cold for a while in the novel. I'd rather friend zone him and
not go through what Katy did.

(Linked to Goodreads)

Your Soul Mate:
Lucas/Landon from Easy By Tammara Webber
He's caring, kind and honest. He's somewhat flawed and has tattoos.

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Would Elope With:
Quarry from Fighting Solitude (On The Ropes #3) By Aly Martinez
He's a fighter in the ring, honest and kind. He's usually traveling for
his fights so I imagine that eloping would be very simple with him.

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Would Venture Anywhere With:
Gabriel from Chameleon By Kelly Oram
According to my review he's, "I have a serious soft spot for innocent, sweet,
down to earth, insecure guys. Gabriel is the incarnation of that guy. He was
so understanding and self sacrificing (...)".

(Linked to my review)


The Boyfriend You Want To Be Stranded
On A Deserted Island With:
Justus from the Mageri Series By Dannika Dark
He's a badass fighter and he's a termal (which in the Mageri universe
means he can control and project his body heat) so I won't be dying of hypothermia at least.

(Linked to my review)






The Most Badass Boyfriend:
Neil from Neil (The Uncompromising #2) By Sybil Bartel
He's ex danish military and overall badass. In his story he performs an
unrealistic and crazy maneuver to get out of danger. He's by far one of the
most dangerous book boyfriends I've had the pleasure of reading about.

The Power Of Book Covers: Where Good Girls Go To Die By Holly Renee


They say don't judge a book by it's movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

Where Good Girls Go To Die
By Holly Renee

It was a bad idea from the beginning.

He was my brother's best friend and the definition of unavailable.

But I didn't care.

I had loved him for as long as I could remember.

He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.

But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn't there to catch me.

So I ran.

Four years later, I never expected to see him again.

He was still my brother's best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.

He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.

Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.

Unfortunately for him, I wasn't a good girl anymore.

Book Review: Hart Of His By Annie Arcane

Hart Of His
(Cale & Mickey #2)
By Annie Arcane

Moving in with Mickey Hart has taught me a few lessons.

523 square feet is really f*cking small. Sharing a bathroom is the worst idea ever when you’re a damn paraplegic. Never lie, no matter what. And one more thing...

I'm madly in love with this girl.

Warning: Strong language, mature content, drama, and angst included. Shirt sold separately.

This is a novella.

My Review:

I wish this had been a full length novel because it ended too fast. I loved having the opportunity to glimpse into Cale's mind. I wasn't expecting to find what I found while in there. This was a beautiful novel. The author's writing style is amazing.

Being in Cale's head in no easy place. You could probably say that about most people, but he's had it especially tough when you consider he's a paraplegic and prideful to a fault. He's worked so hard to overcome his disability in so many ways that he isn't accustomed to having someone want to help him. His pride gets in his way and it makes his relationship with Mickey that much more difficult because she doesn't back down very easily. His insecurities about his disability and why Mickey is still around also get in his way very often. The way he deals with the consequences isn't always pretty or smart.

Mickey is more in the background in this novel but plays a part that's just as important. She's very stubborn but, unlike Cale, she'll back down when she deems the argument pointless. That only serves to irritate Cale even more, which ends with him saying something he'll regret. I liked how she dealt with his verbal assaults. At the end of the day, I think they both realize that their relationship is worth more than their stubbornness.

The ending was very sweet. The on and off relationship dynamic they have going on is starting to get annoying because this is the second book in this series in which this happens. I'd have hoped they'd have gotten over that triviality by now. Overall, this was a very eye-opening book and it does justice to the first book.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Everyone has a limit. Everyone has a breaking point. [...] He would much rather die than allow you to witness it. That's the problem with loving a superhero."

"One minute you're fine and the next minute... Everything just collapses around you. And the whole f*cking world caves in."
