✫.•° My Review °•.✫

Filomena gives us a whole new perspective on the cruel, twisted world of the De La Crux Mafiosi. Filomena is told from the point of view of Donna Filomena. Donna Filomena started off as the daughter of The Duke Antonio Del Monte. Little did Donna Filomena know that she had been offered to Alonso De La Crux as part of a deal, a deal made between her father and his. Now Alonso was there to collect his prize!

This book tells us of Donna Filomena’s life, it begins when she is introduced to Alonso and continues as they are married and begin a family. It takes us deep into the depths of her relationship with Alonso and shows the struggles she endures, and faces being married to such a powerful man.

When Filomena becomes a mother her outlook changes somewhat, as she realises that she needs to protect Alejandro from this dark and cruel side of Alonso. She tries so hard to keep Alonso’s darkness and cruelty away from her son. There’s only so much she can do when she’s completely alone though.

Filomena’s story is filled with emotions and her deepest secrets, ones that no-one else knows. It gives an outstanding insight into a character that; up until now; I thought was a cold hard woman. Now I can see why she has behaved the way she has.

Filomena is a dark, cruel, twisted emotional novella that fits this series perfectly.

Laura Rossi’s writing style is as amazing as ever. She shows a real talent for writing darkly twisted stories. Her words are like fishing hooks that sink into your brain and pull you further into the world that she has created. The more words you read, the further the hook burrows and the more you want to read.

I’ve got to say Filomena was a captivating read, I have loved every page. I can not wait to see just what is in store for us in Crux!!

If you haven’t read this book yet, you really should. BUT you need to read Skins and Scars(in that order) first!

✫.•° About The Author °•.✫

My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.

I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.

After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.

I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.

I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.

Morgan by Claire Marta and Nia Farrell

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

When grad student Morgan Leviss chose sexual surrogacy for her thesis, she never expected to become one. Now she’s tasked with turning two reclusive men into social creatures. Zac Blackstone and Aiden Goldman are nothing like what she expects. Handsome and charming, they’re a puzzle she finds intriguing.

Zac and Aiden have known each other for over two hundred years. Part of a cadre of shifters, they’re on a mission to mate and procreate. Powerful warriors for centuries, they lack the social skills and sexual experience needed to attract a partner. When a beautiful redhead comes into their life to teach them, they discover new hope.

Bound by secrecy, the men can’t tell her who they really are. What they are. Increasingly drawn to Morgan, they begin to recognize her as their fated female. Convincing her that she’s theirs may be as hard as keeping her alive when danger appears from the shadows.

Morgan is the first in the Guarded Hearts Series of standalone Erotic Paranormal Romance Ménage deftly penned as subtle Romantic Comedy with a heat level that’s off the charts. Written for Ages 18+.

Genres: Paranormal Romance / Romantic Comedy / Sci-Fi Fantasy / Erotic Romance / Ménage

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I’ve been a fan of Claire Marta’s work for a while now. But this is the first of Nia Farrell’s work that I’ve read. I think that these two authors have worked incredibly well together. Their writing styles complement each other and the book flows effortlessly, I couldn’t tell who had written which parts.

The Blurb for this book had me intrigued but I didn’t know exactly what was in store for me.

Zac and Aiden are two extremely hot males and they are looking for their mate, their fated mate. The problem they have is that they are completely inexperienced with females and all aspects of dating. Tasked with finding their mate and procreating, help is enlisted in the form of Morgan Leviss.

Morgan is currently researching and writing a thesis based on sexual surrogacy, when she chose this for her thesis she had never dreamed that she might actually become one herself.

What starts off as a working relationship progresses into so much more. The chemistry between Morgan, Zac and Aiden is phenomenal. They work extremely well together each character is as compelling as the others.

The overall story is well thought out and well written. It’s descriptive and informative. The words on the pages creates a very clear mental image for the reader to become lost and engrossed in.

✫.•° About The Authors °•.✫

Claire Marta

Claire Marta:

A native Brit, I live in Italy with my husband and daughter. When I am not writing and drinking copious amounts of tea, I enjoys taking photos of my adoptive country, trying to stay fit with running, reading amazing books and being a stay at home mother.

Nia Farrell

Nia Farrell:

I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you’ve read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.

A lot of me goes into my books. I’ve done psychic readings at Irish festivals (like Grace in SOMETHING ELSE). I have cowritten music like Anna in SOMETHING MORE. Rachel’s story was the most challenging because of the themes involved. A dear friend struggles with post-rape PTSD and two of my nephews are autistic. SOMETHING MORE addresses some of the challenges they face.

Buried by Sian Claven

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Home is where the heart is … or the hatred.

You can feel the love and care someone puts into their home just by walking into it. Equally, you can feel the hatred and malice when you step into a home where dark deeds have been done.

Alex and his team of so-called paranormal investigators are given the opportunity of a lifetime when they are able to film inside one of the most haunted, and cursed, locations in their area.

The Jackson Mansion.

The thing that makes this mansion truly unique is that it is built completely underground. Determined to uncover the dark secrets of the mansion’s past, and prove himself a notable investigator, Alex doesn’t care what it takes. The mansion, however, has other ideas, as well as some rather restless occupants.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I’m not entirely sure I have the words to do this book the justice it deserves. I’ve been left utterly speechless!

Buried takes us into the heart of the Jackson Mansion. It follows Alex and his team of Paranormal Investigators as they are finally allowed access to film inside the mansion. The aim of Alex and his team is to spend time in the mansion and disprove all of the horrific scandals that this mansion is surrounded by. I think Alex and the team got a lot more than they ever bargained for!

This is a book packed with horrific, creepy and twisted acts that will have your jaw hitting the floor in shock!

Buried is an exceptional piece of writing, that will have you completely in awe of just how twisted and depraved it is. This author has such a way with words, you will have little or no choice in seeing the things that Sian describes in your own mind.

Buried grabbed a hold of my attention from the very beginning, the more I read the more I became engrossed in the twisted tales of the Jackson Mansion!

Buried really is an exceptional piece of fiction writing and is worthy of so much more than 5 Stars. Sian you are one twisted lady, please don’t ever change.
