{eBook Tour} Review: SEDITIOUS & RANSOM by Emily Guido

Today we have something a little unusual. I am reviewing the next two books in The Light-Bearer Series – Seditious and Ransom. 

SEDITIOUS The Light-Bearer Series, #4

PDMI Direct
YA, Paranormal, Christian, Romance

The Fourth Novel in "The Light-Bearer Series" is "Seditious." This book is the continuation of Tabbruis and Charmeine’s romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!

Tabbruis and Charmeine’s life at the ‘Castle Charmeine’ is blissful until reality of the ruling the Elder Council Blood-Hunters hits them in the face.

In "Seditious" Tabbruis and Charmeine find that their love is tested in the most heinous way possible.

Then, as a one-two punch, Lord Cromwell, one of the most deadly and powerful Blood-Hunter ever has escaped the Elder Council Prison. Lord Cromwell sends his beautiful agent to cause trouble for Tabbruis and Charmeine and wants something that they have!

Charmeine runs away from the ‘Castle Charmeine’ to forget the betrayal of her most beloved husband Tabbruis.

Can Tabbruis win Charmeine back? How can he make her understand?

Exciting all the way to the end! "Seditious" will have you turning page after page in this story of passion, betrayal and seduction.

“Seditious” the fourth novel, will have you riveted from the beginning.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

RANSOM The Light-Bearer Series, #5

PDMI Direct 
YA, Paranormal, Christian, Romance

“Ransom” is the Fifth Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” Can Tabbruis convince Charmeine, his love and soul-mate to take him back? Will Charmeine be able to forget the pain of the past?

Tabbruis and Charmeine take their new family on a much needed and impromptu vacation; however, there is always a twist and turn for them to recover from.

The children of Dmitri are growing up fast and there is an addition to the ‘Castle Charmeine’.

Lord Cromwell, plans a deadly attack on the ‘Castle Charmeine’ and he takes something precious to Charmeine. However, he wants something in exchange.

Can Charmeine and her family battle this deadly adversary?

Tabbruis and Charmeine’s family bond together to fight Lord Cromwell and more surprises are in store for the star-crossed lovers, Tabbruis and Charmeine!

A must read for all who have read “Charmeine," "Mactus," "Accendo," and “Seditious” in “The Light-Bearer Series.” However, "Ransom" can be a stand-alone novel in its own right!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Inspiration behind the series

I wanted to tell the story of two ill-fated, mixed matched characters who were total opposites which had to fight Heaven and Hell to be together! They were made for each other but always seemed they had obstacle after obstacle but some wonderful and terrifying things happened to them during the process. But before that, when I was little my big sis, Connie, had Leukemia. We used to watch the soap operas together in the afternoon like All My Children and Dark Shadows. She was all caught up in the men on the shows, I was too young to notice, but those stories of love, mystery, and terror seem to play like a movie in my mind. When Connie passed away, it left a hole in my heart but it left me with a passion for Paranormal Romance. She inspired a true passion to write for Tabbruis and Charmeine and their love.

I read these two books as a back-to-back read and loved them even more than the first three! WOW! The Queen of Light and King of Darkness are back with more adventure, love, trauma, and delicious vampire vs angel vs human stories.

The love between Char and Tab is put to the test as a group of Blood Hunters arrive at the castle requesting their presence in Athens. But, what they don’t know is that it’s just a diversion. The real goal is to let Bathsheba get to Charmeine, the very pregnant Charmeine. Char isn’t that easy to mess with though but before she can find out anything Bathsheba falls to the floor after giving herself an unknown injection.

Things get more complicated from then on. When Tab returns and sees Bathsheba, he and Dmitri both turn on her. Its obvious that something’s going on but Char struggles to figure what is happening to her husband. Add to this the fact that Lord Cromwell has escaped and Char and her family are left scrambling to uncover what is happening and set it straight before it’s too late.

The locations are beautifully depicted, the characters both new and old lovingly vibrant, and the angst and action so vivid you feel like you were there with them.

These books leave me wanting more! Thank you, Emily, for a great series (and for continuing it, lol).

Note: This is a review of the next two books of the series.

type fast enough. The novels "Charmeine," “Mactus,” “Accendo,” “Seditious,” and “Ransom,” are the continuation of the wonderful adventures of the inhabitants of The Castle Charmeine!

CAULDRON OF TALES: Five Witches With Wild Imaginations . . .

Title: Cauldron of Tales

Publisher: Every Book Has A Chick 
Genre: Paranormal, Erotic, Interracial, Romance 
Length: Anthology 27.3 k words

When five witches with wild imaginations get together, the pot boils over with trouble, romance, and sensuality.

In The Devil’s Berries, readers are taken back to Renaissance England where Sabine, facing her last night alive, reveals how the witch really came to be associated with the broomstick. Will her nightly visitor bring her more trouble or will he give her peace?

Cindy can’t decide if she’s Hexed Or Vexed her longtime friend, Killen. All she knows is that one second he was her very manly friend, and the next, he’s a dog. Can her Witchy Group on Facebook help her fix the mess, or will she be burdened with a comical canine companion the rest of her days?

Willow Vance is a poor excuse for a witch, and by some stroke of luck, the six-year-old Past Potion she crafted worked. When the hexed warlock finds out about Willow’s curse, he will stop at nothing for her to lift the spell. Willow can run, but does she want to?

Alone for Halloween, Bryn is ready to take some frustrations out on her purple battery-operated toy, but she’s in for a surprise when the Toy Soldier becomes a flesh-and-blood man. Grateful to be free of his plastic curse, Byron will do anything for her…no matter how naughty.

A dance of seduction under The Light of the Moon turns into a night of passion, but will that be enough for Aponi to keep the man of her dreams enchanted? Or will the flame that was ignited die out just as quickly as it sparked?

Danica finds herself confused after a trip to the carnival with her best friend and coworker. She’s been attracted to Lisette for months, but are her feelings really being reciprocated, or was there A Sappho Spell cast in Madame Lilith’s tent?

Excerpt from THE STRIX by Katalina Leon and Amber Skyze

Title: The Strix
Author: Katalina Leon and Amber Skyze

Publisher: Loose Id LLC
Series: Bag of TricksGenre: Vampire, Shapeshifter, Fantasy, Romance
Pages: 234
Source: BTS

Buy: Loose ID | ARe | Amazon 

A cursed amber amulet unearthed in Pompeii flings Arcona into a past life of witchcraft, bloodshed, revenge and sexual slavery to the cruel Master of a gladiatorial school. This violent parallel world is populated with “Slayers,” blood-drinking immortals devoted to the gods of war and mayhem.

As a Strix, or malignant witch, Arcona once used sex and blood rituals to create a race of immortal warriors to unleash on Rome. Now it’s time to pay.

The gladiator Tyr was one desperately lonely lover she betrayed. Against his will, she turned him into Upir Likhyi, a foul vampire. For two millennia he’s lived a grim existence as a Slayer, in constant sexual arousal yet denied release; now, he’s pissed off and wants revenge. He kidnaps Arcona planning to drink her dry and break the curse.

Along the way Arcona and Tyr relive their sexual slavery at the hands of Rome and blood sport in the arena, but the real magic is they forgive and fall in love.

Too bad another Slayer wants them dead.
