Blurb

Four men, brought together by fate, connected in more powerful ways than they’d ever imagined.

Lidon, the powerful alpha-cop, determined to never trust another partner—until he helps the vulnerable omega through his heat and connects with him in a way that leaves him reeling.

Enar, the alpha-doctor who dedicates his life to serving omegas who need his help. He works himself to the bone, anything to drown out his inner voices that scream at him he’s not a real alpha.

Palani, the sassy beta reporter who will do anything to save his omega lover, even if it means watching another man claim him.

Vieno, the omega who suffers from a medical condition that requires an alpha’s help. It was supposed to be sex, but his attraction to the alpha goes much deeper. But how can he betray Palani like this?

When Vieno’s freedom is endangered, he needs Lidon to save him. The alpha steps up, but the consequences of his choice are more far-reaching than anyone of them had foreseen.

Four men try to figure out what they are to each other amidst political unrest, investigations into corruption and fraud, a medical issue that is far bigger and more sinister than it seemed at first, and old legends that are turning out to be real.

NOTE: Alpha’s Sacrifice is an MMMM mpreg romance and the first book in the Irresistible Omegas series. It is not a stand-alone and ends on a cliffhanger.

Please note trigger warnings for mentions of rape, sexual assault, suicide, miscarriage, and abortions and a minor storyline involving depression.

 Excerpt

Vieno hummed along to Barbra Streisand as he emptied the kitchen cupboards. It had been months since he’d taken all the china and glassware out and had cleaned the shelves with the lemon-scented cleaner he preferred. Cleaning always calmed him, and considering how twisted his insides felt, like his stomach was corkscrewed, he could do with a little soothing. 

Ten days until his next heat. Ten days until he had to make a decision all over again, to use suppressants or not. To seek a caretaker or not. To find the courage to approach Lidon…or not. 

His mind was saying one thing, his heart another, and his body, oh, his body knew exactly what it wanted. How fucked up was that? It was a lose-lose-lose situation. 

If he asked a caretaker—that’s what his mind was urging him to do—he’d lose part of his dignity, maybe even part of himself. He wasn’t sure if he would ever recover from being treated like a whore again, which was undoubtedly what would happen. His mind might be okay with it, but his soul wasn’t.

If he took the suppressants—the option his heart was telling him—he’d reset the improvement of his health and once again start on that not-so-slow decline. Plus, they were weighing heavy on their budget, and even with both their jobs they cost too much money to afford long term.

Yet if he asked Lidon—and his body was begging him to please, accept his knot again—it would chip away at Palani’s love for him all over again. How many times until there was nothing left but brokenness?

READ MY REVIEW

BLURB

My name is Theoden, this is the story of my life. Apparently, there has been a huge demand for me to tell it. Normally, I do what I want, unless the command comes from my Sire, Ara. But, revealing the tale about how I became the powerful vampire Prince of the City is something I think I will enjoy telling.

You’ll see my first mission for the church, my first kill, the life-changing moment when I lost my virginity, and how I chose my first son, all of the things that mean something to me, that made me the vampire I am. So, sit back, and give me all of your attention, as I want your eyes on me. Now, let’s begin.

Prepare to be entertained to new heights as Theoden delivers you a unique tale of his life from childhood to the vampire Master you know him to be.

Warning: This is a prequel to the highly erotic, extremely dark and twisted New Haven Series and the spin-off, Odin Chronicles. I can’t stress enough how strong the sexual, violent, and adult content is in this book.

It will steam up your glasses, and melt your contact lenses. The temperature in the room will rise to unbearable degrees. Pearls will be clutched and you may utter the words: “Oh my God” several times while reading. You have been warned. For mature readers only.

EXCERPT

Once I was outside in the garden, I could no longer hold back, and I vomited blood onto a rose bush. But once it was out of my stomach, I felt better. For me, sex would never overflow, but blood could. Another lesson learned. I wiped my mouth with the back of my hand and, before I could take to the skies, three vampires appeared before me.

“Where do you herald from?” one of them asked me. He gripped a silver dagger in his hand a little more tightly as he waited for my reply.

I looked at each one them, gauging them and their positions to my own. I didn’t fear them because I knew just how powerful I was and I was confident in my training. This was the other part of my mission, one that Ara was certain I would encounter.

“From the Kingdom of Ara, my Father,”I declared proudly. Ara wanted me to do so, and in doing so, leave my mark.

“Is this a declaration of war?”the same vampire asked.

I shrugged. “I think not. I had an old debt to settle.”I gestured toward the rectory, and then to my clothes that were covered in the blood of my victims.

“You dare kill on our territory!”another vampire said.

“Breaching another vampire King’s territory without permission is punishable by death,”the first vampire said, then he advanced on me. He was fast, as fast as Nolan, and I had to react quickly before he could plunge the blade of his dagger into my chest. Thanks to my training with Tylendel, I knew the silver could not kill me, but it could weaken me, and that, I could not allow.

I grabbed his wrist just as the tip of the dagger pierced my flesh, burning my skin. I didn’t hesitate to take advantage of our close proximity. I sank my fangs deeply in his shoulder and injected as much venom as I could.

He cried out, and I pulled back. He released his grip on his dagger and staggered back. The other two vampires looked at him and glared in shock as his skin began to turn pale. Sweat poured from his pores as his veins began to protrude through his flesh, looking bright red against the nearly translucent skin.

I didn’t know the effect a dragon’s venom could have on a vampire and still didn’t know, as I was only half dragon. But its effect was deadly and looked to be extremely painful as the vampire had been rendered powerless against my bite until he died. I looked at the other two vampires and aimed my hand at the one who had not spoken a word, then conjured up my flames, releasing them in his direction.

The other vampire dashed out of the way, his sword drawn, but he stayed his position as he watched me burn his companion into a cinder. The vampire howled as he spun around in an attempt to extinguish the flames, but he couldn’t. I controlled them and only relinquished that control once he fell to the ground, motionless. The last remaining vampire was thinking about fleeing or fighting, which was the only reason he was still there. In the end, he decided to flee, and I chased after him.

I was shocked that I had caught up to him because I could sense his aura and knew he was at least a century older than I was. I tackled him to the ground and he rolled over, scooting away from me.

About me? Hmmm, I’m just a person with a wild imagination and a love for words who was sitting around the house one day and said, “Why hasn’t anyone written a book like this before?”

As with every storyteller, I wanted to share mine with the world. I like my erotica dark, gritty, sexy… and even a little raunchy. I’m not afraid to go there and I hope you aren’t afraid to go there with me. When I’m not writing, I love watching movies and TV shows, clubbing, biking, and hanging out with family and friends. I love life.

I’d love to hear from you, feel free to send me a shout out!

Brilliant sneak into what made Theoden who he is in New Haven

Theoden (New Haven)Theoden by Nicholas Bella

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brilliant exploration of what makes the greatest vampire tick and how he was turned by Ara centuries ago.

Theoden is Nicholas Bella at his kinky best, full of gorgeous erotic exploration of the power of sexual desire and the violence which comes from being all powerful in a world which doesn’t know the dangers living within it.

I loved how from the very start there was something different about the young Italian child who was being harshly brought up in a priory and subjected to an austere and joyless life while others around him are of the forbidden fruit.

His warrior talents were fully expressed once he was turned and the rebellious journey he had to go through before he became accepting of his fate mirrors a similar one his child Noel goes through in the later books in the New Haven series.

Reading this gives an insight into why Theoden is as ruthless and powerful as he is and gave me a hankering to read all the other books again!

Nora Phoenix’s latest romance kept me up until 3.30am

Alpha's Sacrifice Cover - FinalSo, I thought: “I know, I’ll just read a couple of chapters of this new ARC before I go to sleep because it’s only just midnight and I’m not super tired yet”.

3.30am later, I’ve finished the damn book and I’m raging (but not in a bad way) at the cliffhanger because I NEED the rest of these guys’ romance like yesterday.

This is book one in Nora’s new series – Irresistible Omegas – and let me tell you, I couldn’t resist it at all.

Lidon, the powerful alpha-cop.
Enar, the alpha-doctor who dedicates his life to serving omegas who need his help.
Palani, the sassy beta reporter who will do anything to save his omega lover, even if it means watching another man claim him.
Vieno, the omega who suffers from a medical condition that requires an alpha’s help.

Each character is beautiful crafted and rounded out, complex and fascinating and their dynamics both in pairs and as a four are complicated and I couldn’t put the book down because I needed to know what was going to happen next!

There’s also  lots of quietly political stuff in this alternative paranormal world, where omegas aren’t just second class, they’re dumped way down the pecking order and betas don’t fare much better.

Also driving the plot narrative is a potentially dangerous police and journalistic investigation which both Lidon and Palani are involved in on the quiet and which could have huge repercussions for the whole Alpha/beta/omega society as a whole.

Book Two is out hopefully in May so all I can say is “hurry up Nora!”

No Shame brings a great conclusion to this debut series

No Shame (No Shame, #4)No Shame by Nora Phoenix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first started reading this series, I really wasn’t sure where the story was supposed to be going. Book one was a bit mixed up with a “not quite menage” feeling that meant I hadn’t a sense of the narrative.

But, I have to say, Nora Phoenix has book on book improved the relationship development between the four main characters and also managed to skilfully introduce five more diverse men into this narrative.

This was probably my favourite of the lot as the secondary plot of Indy’s gangland ex still hunting him was concluded in book three – to my immense satisfaction with a wonderful take down scene.

So here the tone throughout is way more chilled and the story can focus on laying down the firm ties of friendship between all seven men living in the main house.

I loved Miles when he appeared as Indy’s FBI handler man in book three and in this one the reader gets a deeper glimpse into his life with an unusual and embarrassing sexual condition.

Thankfully for him, Blake’s brother Brad (who we met also in book three), is an absolute perfect match with his deep seated desire to please and to be used by a daddy in the best possible way.

The menage in this is extremely well crafted, Charlie has been in love with Brad since he rescued him from two bullies who were going to stick him in the dumpster at school. Brad is older than Charlie but their dynamic has always been equal.

Once these three meet, the slow build up from just meeting each other’s sexual needs into a fully loving relationship was excellent.

This series surprised me in the end and there’s not many that can do that these days.
