Soulfire (Nightwing #1) by Juliette Cross

Every now and than we all discover new authors that we can't help but love. Juliette Cross has been this author for me this year. I have absolutely loved everything I have read from her so far. This was no different!
I guess it helps her books have my biggest PNR weaknesses: dragons (shifters or hybrids my usual go to) and demons.
About a month ago I read and reviewed her latest new release Darkest Heart and I thought for sure that would be my favorite work by her. It was paranormal romance, but it also had depth. 
Soulfire is nothing like Darkest Heart. It is just a feel good PNR! And I LOVED it for it! My brain wants me to sit here and say I preferred Darkest Heart, there is 'more' to it. A grittiness you won't find in Soulfire. But my heart sings Soulfire! Can't help it... It was such an easy breezy lovely read about two souls from two different worlds that just are meant to be. 
*SWOON* 
Than swoon some more...hehe 

The Blurb (better late than never 🤣):
In a world divided by prejudice and hatred, only love can bridge the chasm.

Tensions are rising in the Gladium Province. The boundary between humans and Morgons has begun to blur. While the human aristocracy strives to maintain distance between their daughters and the dragon-hybrid race, fate has other plans.

As the daughter of the corporate king, Jessen Cade is duty-bound to honor her arranged marriage to a man she detests. Feeling trapped by family duty and a loveless future, she longs for more, straying to the Morgon side of the city.

Lucius Nightwing is the eldest son of the powerful Morgon clan, and the greatest enemy of Jessen’s father. When a bar-room brawl thrusts Jessen into his arms, his dragon roars to the surface, craving to sate his carnal hunger in the brown-eyed beauty. The beast in Lucius recognizes her as his own, even if the man refuses to admit the truth.

What else can I say about it? Lets see... Lucius! He had me at hello. 
Lucius is danger itself. Unless you want to be dead it is really for the best not to provoke the guy. And yet, he also had a vulnerable side that will give you a case of butterflies! 
Jessen is feisty and doesn't agree with the prejudice of her world. She was likable and the kind of character you want to be friends with instantly.

Needless to say, I think you should all go and read Soulfire!
5 million beautiful stars to the beautiful Juliette who is slowly but SURELY becoming one of my all time favorite PNR writers!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan .
