Ferocious (Secret of Ceres Book 1) by Stella Williams [arc review]

Stella Williams will be at the store I work at for Bookstore Romance Day, so of-course I had to read her book before hand!


The Blurb:

The Sanctuary of Ceres is the best-kept secret in the non-human world. 
Farrah Andromeda is a headstrong Aura PI in the human world. Donovan Mars is a straight-laced Security Force Officer of Ceres. They both want to solve the case of a missing Aura teen, but their methods put them at odds. 
When clashes of the mind turn to sparks in the bedroom, will they be able to put aside their differences before the world as they know it goes up in flames? 

The first thing you need to know about Ferocious is that it is set in the same world as The Maura's Men series by the same author. I personally struggled a little in the beginning to figure out what was going on. I felt like there was a book I should have read first. 

That being said, once the world started to take shape in my head the story was much easier to follow and it turned into a fabulous romance mystery. 
There is whole paranormal and sci-fi world hidden in plain sight from humans and somehow Aura girls are going missing on earth. But how? PI Farrah and Security Officer Donovan are put in charge of figuring that out.
Farrah, like many other Auras lives in the human world. Donovan lives within the safety of Ceres. They are both head strong and pretty much set in their ways. SO needless to say they are not happy to have to work together. It doesn't take long however from them to at least try to put their differences aside in order to find the missing girl.
The tension between the main characters is there from beginning to end and their chemistry is spot on. 

All in all it was a great steamy paranormal mystery romance.

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
