Hunt Me (#2 The Puritan Coven) Louise Cypress - Blog Tour


by Louise Cypress
The Puritan Coven, #2
Publication Date: May 21, 2018
Genres: YA, Paranormal, Vampire, Standalone, Romance



An all-girls vampire camping trip turns deadly when a sasquatch hunter is accidentally killed.

All Esma Siban wants this summer is to stay out of her stepmothers way. When her stepsister, Morgan, suggests a road trip to Oregon to visit a friend from high school, Esma jumps on the idea. A camping trip sounds like the perfect way to help Esma recover from breaking up with her boyfriend. But when Esma and Morgan encounter a stalker, Esmas fangs come out. The death of a Sasquatch hunter wasnt on their itinerary. A terrified Esma is unsure what to do next, so she texts her ex-boyfriend for help.?

Chase Wheeler feels like the biggest fool on the football team. The entire time he was dating Esma, he had no idea she was a vampire. In high school Chase did exactly what Esma told him to. He let Esma plan their dates, pick his wardrobe, and even pack his lunches. Now Chase has a month left before he starts college to forget the girl who froze his heart.?

When Chase lands an internship on the popular radio talk show Fred Head, he finds his voice and charts a future that doesnt involve domineering girlfriends. But all it takes is one text from Esma and Chase runs back to her waiting arms. Chase finds the courage to tell Esma that hes through with being bossed around right when Esma realizes that she desperately needs Chases input. The only way home from this camping trip is to be bitten or smitten.


4 Stars

Hunt Me picks up from where it left off in the first book, but can be read as a standalone. The author recaps the main events of the disaster of the Promegadon which gives a good overview of what happened that night. Chase and Esma are the main characters in this story.

Chase and Esma have been dating for a couple of years, but Chase was unaware of Esma's true nature. On finding out, he takes it as a betrayal and breaks up with Esma. 

Cassandra is from a family of vampire slayers and is friendly with Esma and her stepsister, Morgan. She organises a camping trip for the three of them to help Esma get over the breakup. Girls only! 

Chase is interning as an assistant radio host with Al, Cassandra's father who is a vampire slayer. Someone reports a missing Sasquatch being hunted, everyone takes it as a joke except for Al.

The girls are enjoying their trip until they come across the Sasquatch and the accidental death of his hunter. They are quite taken by the Sasquatch and sets about returning him to his family, then strange things start to happen. They are attacked by blood thirsty vampires and Esma resorts to contacting Chase. Even though, they are no longer together, he comes to the rescue. 

Although he behaves indiffently towards Esma, the feelings between them are still alive, but Chase is intent on a new start. When more danger appears in the most unlikely form of other campers, their first instinct is to protect each other. Can Chase forgive Esma for her omission? 

This is an easy to read paranormal young adult romance with plenty of adventure. "Barney" captured my heart! I quite liked Cassandra in the first book, but her behaviour is quite irritating in some parts of this story. It's also good to catch up with Van and Morgan. I like Esma's reasoning for her behaviour towards Chase. Despite all their differences, they make a sweet couple. I enjoyed the storyline and would like to see what comes next. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.




A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who's unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can't wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents' messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van's mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

Ever After is a welcome continuation to Cole's and Lori's story which ends with a flourish.

Cole and Lori have come to the end of a wonderful honeymoon in Paris and it's now time to return to reality. Only the reality isn't "their normal"!

Lori's last case has created a stir and she is faced with a threat on their return. This brings about Cole's demons. Demons he has kept buried and kept a secret until now. This strengthens his desire to protect Lori who in turn goes back to her old tactics to protect Cole. This shows the depth of their love for each other, but will their relationship survive the pressure and stress of this new development?

It's a great storyline where the authorities are corrupt and innocents become victims. Cole, Reese, Cat and Lori are not about to lose sight of their primary objective. Justice for the innocents. Their working relationship and friendship are solid and they can rely on each other without question. The love between Cole and Lori is stronger than ever and I like the way they navigate through all the danger and difficulties. It's a heartwarming and sexy story packed with suspense and danger. The added layer of Ashley's predicaments add mystery and intrigue to the story. Another well portrayed and magnificent read.

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

“You have me now. I’m not going anywhere. I promise.”

“You can’t promise that.”

“I can,” he says, his voice deep, rich, his tone absolute. “I will.”

“People die.”

“Yes, but if I die, you’ll know how much I loved you. You’ll know I’m still with you.” He cups my face. “But you don’t get to get rid of me that easily. Whatever waits for us here, there, or anywhere, we’ll get through it together. That’s what husbands and wives do.”

Warmth and calm wash over me. “Husband,” I whisper.

“Wife,” he replies, his gaze raking over my lips, and lifting. “About that zipper.”

“Take me to our hotel and I’ll show you how it works.”

“I can’t wait that long,” he counters, reaching for said zipper.

I catch his hand. “Cole,” I warn urgently. “You have to wait.”

I’ve barely finished that reprimand before his mouth is crashing down on mine and he’s kissing me, his tongue stroking my tongue. One of his hands settles at the base of my spine, molding me close, all those hard, sinewy parts of him pressed to all the soft parts of me and I moan. Another second later, and my zipper is open, and he’s pressed my hands over my head, his fingers dragging over the thin lace of my barely-there bra, teasing my nipples.

“We can’t do this here,” I whisper, and I mean it, despite the moan that rolls from my throat, as his fingers slide between my legs, heat pooling low in my belly and spreading to the touch of his fingers.

“And yet we are,” he says.

Voices sound just outside the door, and I panic. “Cole,” I hiss.

He reacts, and in an instant, his arm is around my waist and he’s pulling me into a long, narrow stall, shutting the heavy door and locking it. Women, two I think, enter the bathroom, and Cole steps back in front of me, his cheek pressing to mine as he whispers. “I’m going to make you come with them standing right there.”

My fingers curl on his chest. “No,” I silently whisper, but he swallows the protest with a deep lick of his tongue, and just like that, he’s grabbed my panties and yanked them away.

And then he’s kneeling on one knee, his lips pressing to my belly, and the effect is an adrenaline rush up and down my body. My fingers tangle in his hair and I tell myself it’s to pull him away, but his tongue flicks my belly button and I bite my lip to silence my pleasure. I know where that tongue is headed and it’s almost too much.

Dirty Rich Cinderella Story is Cole and Lori's first book and MUST be read prior to reading the new release, DIRTY RICH CINDERELLA STORY: EVER AFTER

Hour of Darkness (#2 Hunter Legacy) Lara Adrian

Lara Adrian

Publication Date 
25 September 2018 

Paranormal Romance 

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns with a pulse-pounding new novel in the thrilling Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper’s bullet.

Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she’s grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he’s enlisted Marina’s help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina’s bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain’s intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain’s cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina—a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she’ll ever know.

Each book in the Hunter Legacy series is a standalone vampire romance with a complete storyline and HEA.

5 Stars

This second installment of #Hunter Legacy is a sensational standalone addition to the series.

Cain played a great part in the previous book, but this story delves deeper into his personalty and the reasons why he leads his chosen lifestyle. 

Marina was raised in a Russian mafia environment. This is the only life that she has ever known. Her uncle, a prominent figure in the Bratva is her only family. 

Marina has been trying to convince her uncle to change their lifestyle, and when he sends her on a mission to America, she sees this as the ideal opportunity for her wish to come true. Cain is tired of his current path and decides to take a break in Miami. He is a loner who doesn't allow anyone to get close to him, but when he spots a graceful blonde in the swimming pool, something about her compels him. Whilst watching her, his Breed's special gift comes to life and alerts him to a looming danger. With his heightened senses, he detects the direction of the danger is quick to save the day.

Then there is a turn of events, where Marina finds herself in yet, more danger. It would appear that the true reason of her mission is not really a secret, but she would give her life to guard this secret. Once again, Cain comes to the rescue. At this point, she can choose to ignore her attraction to Cain or trust him to keep her safe. 

Despite Cain's quest for not to get involved with anyone after he blames himself for a tragic accident, he decides to see Marina to safety. Her safety isn't the only thing that he has in mind, but he decides to fight the feelings that she stirs in him. Getting close to anyone brings pain. Can he stick to his decision or will his urges get the better of him? 

I found this installment to be compelling and addictive. Marina discovers the truth behind her mission and she is heartbroken. The support she receives from Cain and his brothers is absolute. Their relationship is uncertain to begin with, but their strong feelings are indisputable. I was captivated by this well paced story, the well developed characters, and the strong plot. I look forward to reading the next installment in the series.

Naz & Roz (#5 Cross + Catherine) Bethany-Kris


Publication Date 
10 September 2018 

New Adult
 Contemporary Romance 

The genius and the prodigy ...

Nazio “Naz” Donati is brilliant, sinful, and criminal. A genius from the moment he was born, and a man who's still trying to learn how to navigate and balance this thing called life. He certainly wasn't expecting love to practically fall right into his hands, never mind for love to take the form of his best friend's little sister.

Rosalynn ”Roz” Puzza is talented, beautiful, and driven. A pianist prodigy from the second they sat her at a piano as a little girl, and a young woman who isn't sure if she's truly earned her spot on the stage. She wasn't expecting a man like him to take her focus and change her muse, never mind to distract her from the thing she thought she wanted the most.

Sometimes, first love is intense.
And you just have to ride it out.

When brilliance and talent crash together, it can make magic.

Naz & Roz is a contemporary romance that is meant to be read as an add-on to the Cross + Catherine series, and is not intended to be read as a standalone.

5 Stars

An amazing finish to the Cross + Catherine series. It's a well rounded novella about finding "the one" and coming to terms with new feelings!

Naz, son of darling Cross Donati is a chip off the old block with very little to separate them. Naz is a born genius.

Ros is a pianist prodigy, daughter to Cross' best friend Zeke, and sister to Luca, Naz's best friend.

Although Naz and Ros have known each other from an early age, lightning doesn't strike until they are teenagers. It's instant love when they meet at a family event. They form an incredible bond whilst struggling with their new found feelings. They don't have much time to explore as Naz's work takes him all over the place and Ros is under pressure with her life long ambition of becoming a recognised pianist. Can they find a balance to meet their commitments and keep their beautiful relationship?

This short story is very well portrayed with a solid and intense plot. Despite their young age, Naz and Ros show common sense and are sensible about their decisions. Best of all is Naz's understanding and support. An adorable love story which ends beautifully.

Saying goodbye to Cross and Catherine is rather emotional, but hopefully there will be more of the Donatis' next generation with maybe a glimpse of Cross and Catherine thrown in!

Bethany-Kris is a Canadian author, lover of much, and mother to four young sons, one cat, and three dogs. A small town in Eastern Canada where she was born and raised is where she has always called home. With her boys under her feet, snuggling cat, barking dogs, and a hubby calling over his shoulder, she is nearly always writing something ... when she can find the time.

He kisses me, a quick brush of lips over lips. “I need you naked. I need to feel you next to me.” He rolls me to my back and with that “for now” in the air, he moves and resettles with his lips to my stomach and this is not an accidental connection. My heart squeezes with the certainty that he’s reminding me of how many times he told me he wanted a little girl just like me. It affects me. We had so many plans. We were best friends. We were so many things that happened so very quickly and easily, and then it was gone.

He pulls down my pants, and all too quickly my sneakers and everything else are gone. I’m naked and not just my body. I am so very naked with this man and always have been. But as for my body, I’m not alone for long. He strips away his clothes, and I lift to my elbows to admire all that sinewy, perfect muscle before he reaches down, grabs my legs and pulls me to him. The minute my backside is on the edge of the bed, he goes down on a knee. I sit up and cup his face. “Not now. Now I need—I need—”

He cups my head and pulls my mouth to his, kissing me with a long stroke of his tongue before he says, “And I need to taste you.”

“Not now. I’m not leaving. We have time. I need—you. Here with me.”

His eyes soften but he still leans in and licks my clit, and then suckles. I’m all but undone by the sensation because one thing I know and know well is how good this man is with his tongue. But he doesn’t ignore my request. He pushes off the floor, and in a heartbeat, he’s kissing me and I don’t even know how we end up in the center of the bed, our naked bodies entwined. We just are and it’s wonderful and right in ways nothing has been in so very long.

He lifts my leg to his thigh and presses his thick erection inside me, filling me in ways that go beyond our bodies; driving deep, his hand on my backside, pulling me into him, pushing into me, but then we don’t move. Then we just lay there, intimately connected, lost in the moment and each other. “Is this what you wanted?”

“Yes,” I say. “This is what I wanted.”

“I didn’t think I’d ever have you here, like this, with me again.”

“Me either,” I whisper, my fingers curling on his jaw. “Grayson,” I say for no reason other than I need his name on my lips. I need everything with this man.

He kisses me, a fast, deep, passionate kiss. “I missed the hell out of you, Mia. So fucking much. I don’t think you really understand how much.”

This moment, right here, right now, is one of our raw, honest, perfect moments that has always made his betrayal hard to accept. I need that honesty in my life and with him and I don’t even think about denying him my truth. “I missed you, too. More than you know, Grayson.”

He squeezes my backside and drives into me again. I pant with the sensations that rip through my body, my hand going to his shoulder. “Nothing was right without you,” he says. “Nothing, Mia.” He kisses me, and I sink into the connection, pressing into him, into his thrust, into the hard warmth of his entire body. Needing to be close. Needing the things that separated us not to exist.

DIRTY. RICH. AND UNDENIABLY SEXY. Each book in the Dirty Rich series features a couple that's ready to fight dirty for their love.

There are currently three books available now, and FOUR upcoming books available for pre-order!


And don’t miss ERIC’S STORY which will be the FILTHY DUET! The Bastard (book one) is out on November 14th, and book two, The Princess will be out on January 23rd!


5 Stars

Dirty Rich Betrayal is a fabulous read. It's about feeling betrayed. Jealousy really is a green eyed monster and love hurts!

Grayson is a billionaire bachelor with good ethics even though his biggest enemy is unscrupulous, but there are times when a stand is called for.

Mia has worked hard to prove herself as a successful criminal lawyer. 

Grayson and Mia have been estranged for a year after falling deeply in love, then they were pulled apart. After stumbling upon something which could destroy Grayson and his empire, she sets off to warn him. The atmosphere between them is initially suffocating, despite the fact that their chemistry is still just as strong. Neither of them wants to go through the misery of heartbreak once again. Can they clear up any misunderstandings and tackle the important issue at hand? 

The love between Grayson and Mia is something to behold. They go through some unpleasant and dangerous situations and would die for each other. The enemy's jealousy is so great that he would stop at nothing to destroy Grayson. This novel flows beautifully. The plot is very well thought through and the characters are very well portrayed. The presence of well loved characters from the previous series is an added bonus to this story. Absolutely loved it.
