Review- Kiss Across Swords by Tracy Cooper-Posey

This story successfully combines three of my favorite things: vampires, the medieval time period and erotica.  Brody, Taylor and Veris have been together for four years now. I love how the author shows some of the "glitches" that come with being in a ménage relationship, i.e jealousy and insecurities while also showing the strength of their bond. The time-travel scenes flowed effortlessly. The adventures into the past was very exciting. It was interesting seeing glimpses into Veris's past and the lengths Brody and Taylor would go to make him remember and win his love. 

Pros: two sexy heroes, a determined heroine, steamy sex scenes, an evil vampiress, vivid scenery, time-travel.
Cons: N/A

I would highly recommend this story and I will definitely read the next book in the series.

Review- Tale of a Silver Lion: Refuge Ending by

Book Blurb:
Pencheval is a Silver Lion Adept with a fierce reputation for dispatching bandits, one that has earned him accolades and no small amount of trouble. When the life wears on him, he seeks peace near the Emerald Refuge, a sanctuary for the Temple of Athesiene and place of famed serenity. Unfortunately for a talented mercenary, serenity is only a cloak for boredom and an invitation to accept assignments better left alone.

When a patrol disappears on the far side of the valley, the eager Silver Lion Adept sets out with a heavy purse and an even heavier mind. The evidence points to Goblins, a possibility that is proven with deadly speed when his group is overtaken by battle. As forces gather and wave after wave of creatures come at them, can this road weary warrior find it in himself to save them?

“Heroes are lies and fables….”

My Review

Normally, I tend to read full length novels and was a bit hesitant to read a shorter story. I enjoyed the blurb and decided to give the story a try. I'm very happy that I did. The story was well paced and it held my interest.

Pencheval is a worthy hero and warrior. I enjoyed his back story. Friar Dominik is honorable as well as brave, almost to a fault. The character of the Stonemaster is well fleshed out. He's one of the most interesting characters in the story. The fight scenes alone was worth the read, especially the final one. At the end of the story, I was looking forward to getting a copy of the next book.

Pros: well-written, fast paced, interesting mix of characters ( Bonestrippers, trolls and goblins)
Cons: n/a

I would highly recommend this story and I look forward to reading more from this author.
