Windburn (Nightwing #2) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Hello sunnies!
Another day another beautiful book by Juliette Cross. Have you guys started reading her books yet? why not? If you are a PNR fan you certainly should.
Windburn was great! Sorcha is one of those characters you either love or hate. She was a firecracker for sure. And our Morgan man in this book was just as amazing as his brother in Soulfire. 



Windburn, Juliette Cross
The blurb:

No man can win her heart—until now…

In the Gladium Province, the boundaries between humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, continue to blur as a new generation surrenders to long-forbidden temptation…

Sorcha Linden does whatever she wants whenever she wants, and no one can stop her. Least of all a man. After all, they’re good for only one thing—warming her bed. But then she meets Lorian, brother of Lucius Nightwing. Seductive and iron-willed, Lorian is determined to melt her emotional defenses—and warm her rebellious heart.

The beast within Lorian longs to cage Sorcha and mark her as his own. Forever. Yet the man within also longs to protect her. When a stalker starts leaving Sorcha suggestive gifts with cryptic messages bearing an ancient blood cult symbol, Lorian’s dragon side takes over. With her life at stake, Sorcha can no longer deny the love they share. But when evil tracks her into the night, will she be too late to claim it?





4 Stars


Windburn focuses on Jessen's best friend and her mate's brother, Lorian. Both characters are fabulous. 
Sorcha is a tough cookie to crack. The woman is independent, always speaks her mind, and is a tad aggressive. It might take you a while to warm up to her but I guarantee that eventually you will. She has her reasons to be like that and to put the walls around her heart the way she has.
Lorian is very much like his brother, protective, serious, alpha in every way. But most importantly, he sees past Sorcha's BS and calls her out on it while at the same time being understanding. He doesn't give her space as her life is in danger, but he doesn't push farther than she can go either. 

Although I loved this book Soulfire still my favorite. Sorcha is great but sometimes a tad 'too much' even for me. And because of that I felt the dynamics/chemistry between the main characters were a little off at times. There was more of a balance between the main characters in Soulfire and the next book - Nightbloom (yes, I read both in one sitting, don't judge me!).
But as I said, I loved the book. Lorian was mesmerizing and Sorcha made me laugh plenty! 

Go Read!

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 . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
