    RAZR - cover


He moved toward Jedda, his pulse inexplicably growing faster as he neared her. He’d been in the presence of blindingly gorgeous females with unmatched power in his centuries of life, and none of them had affected him like this. No, this was different, a mix of attraction and anticipation he would almost compare to battle lust.
The thought made him slow his approach, his mind tripping over the implications of that. Was he hoping she was one of the demons responsible for the theft of his property and the deaths of his friends, in which case he’d kill her, or was he hoping she wasn’t involved? And which was worse? Oh, he had no problems with killing demons—it was what he’d been bred for. But it seemed like such a shame to slaughter someone so unique. Or so attractive.
Idiot. You never drooled over demons when you were a full-fledged angel.
No, he hadn’t. There had been a clear separation of class and species back then. But ever since he’d had his wings bound and his powers muted and had been tossed in Sheoul-gra to serve Azagoth, he’d relaxed his standards. Not intentionally, but he had to admit that living life on the other side of the tracks had given him new perspective.
He just wasn’t sure if that was a good thing or a bad one.
Jedda looked up as he stopped in front of her. Up close, she was even more beautiful, with full, pouty lips made to stir up some wicked male fantasies. Her fine, perfect features made her seem delicate, fragile, even, but something told him she was stronger than she looked. Which made him wonder how that strength would play in bed.
Down, boy. Get what you want and get back to Heaven and females suited to your status. And species. “Hello, Ms. Brighton. I’m Razr.”
Cocking her head slightly, she gave him a long, assessing once-over before saying with just a hint of an English accent, “Razr? That’s not a common human name, is it?”
Either she couldn’t sense his species or she was testing him. Either way, he didn’t see any reason to lie. “It’s my fallen angel name. A take on my given name. Razriel.”
“Ah.” She gave him another long, measuring look, taking in the expensive suit Azagoth had given him for the event, and he wondered what she was thinking. “Until tonight, I’d never met a fallen angel, and now I’ve met two, including you.”
“Tonight? Is the other one here?”
She nodded. “Shrike, the event organizer. He owns this place.”
Well, that was mildly alarming. Fallen angels reveled in power and status, which meant that this shindig had probably been arranged for a purpose. An evil purpose.

Book Review: Stranded with the Secret Billionaire | Marion Lennox

21:36 Daniel Riding 0 Comments

This is my first official review for Mills & Boon as one of their official insiders and I am so excited to be able to be a small part of such a wonderful publisher. When presented with the first set of books for review, this one spoke to me in particular. I do have a love for cowboys and rugged outdoorsmen so the idea of spending time with the hero Matt Fraser was a little more than tempting. Not only do we have an incredible hero but our heroine Penny Hindmarsh-Firth proves to be a lot more than just a title. She has ambition, drive and a lot more strength than you would initially believe when we come across her stranded in the Australian outback in her pink convertible, her blonde locks messed from her current stressful situation. 

Matt enters her life on horseback like the proverbial white knight but his mood and attitude towards Penny leave a little to be desired when it comes to his welcoming skills. He offers Penny a place to wait out the impending floods which could be seen as a reflection of the way her life has gone, when he fiancé jilts her for her sister at her family’s pleasure. Not exactly the way she saw her life going. It is just the kick in the pants she needed to finally get her act together, regardless of her family name and all the enforced responsibilities that comes with it she strikes out on her own to do whatever she wants to do. 

Matt makes the mistake on judging her a little harshly on his first impressions of her, and her family name but when he comes to realise that there is much more to Penny than he initially thought, that is when romance begins to bloom. How their relationship develops and how much the come to depend on each other is such a wonderful story to follow along. How we see Matt need Penny for much more than her cooking skills and seeing how Penny is with his daughter were such heart warming moments. I swear, I adored everything about this book and once I had finished it I genuinely sighed with satisfaction.

I love a good romance, and this book has so much heart that it is clear that Marion is a professional story teller and a clear lover of romance. I was swept along with this love story and the entire world ceased to exist when I fell into this world and for me that is the mark of a wonderful book.

I highly recommend this book as it is pure romance, and it leaves you with such a good feeling at the end of it. I adored this book and it was the first of Marion’s that I have read, and I shall now be keeping an eye out for further titles that proudly carry her name.

This story was utter perfection. 

I gave this book a heart thumping 10/10


Jilted heiress Penny Hindmarsh-Firth has set her broken heart on escaping high society city life. But she’s trapped by floods in the Outback, and a handsome stranger on horseback comes to her rescue!
After a betrayal shattered his life Matt Fraser withdrew from the world—but he can’t deny Penny refuge. This secret billionaire is reluctantly intrigued as the society princess begins proving there’s more to her than meets the eye…

Book Review: Happy Mum, Happy Baby - My Adventures In Motherhood | Giovanna Fletcher

14:39 Daniel Riding 0 Comments

It's not very often you read a book and are hooked immediately not being able to put it down but Giovanna's books have me gripped and enticed everytime! 

I pre-ordered this book when it was first announced for presale and managed to get a signed copy which I am ecstatic about. At first glance I thought it was going to be a bit of a parenting guide plus how and what techniques she uses in being a mummy. I was delightfully wrong when I realised it was more a real following of Gi's life from getting with Tom to where she is now with her 2 boys and lovely family. It's a brilliant and lovely piece by piece, chapter by chapter, book of Gi's memoirs and sort of life blog.

From start to finish you feel like a friend listening in, or sat watching what happens with your own eyes in their living room. She has you feeling every raw emotion along with them, from smiles and laughter, upset and hurting when something happened, to joy and elation of milestones. I have never found a book that has been written by somebody that tells it how it is yet it all relates to my own everyday life as well. She has captured the heart and soul of being a mum in great depth and isn't afraid of saying it how it is. Sharing her bad moments with her good, writing down and telling us how she felt in fear of breastfeeding in public which totally bringing my own memories back of the fear of Social stigma. Yet Gi shows that being a parent isn't all buttercups and daisies, but some damned hardwork that will pull your hair out whether you want it to or not and leave you begging for that 2minute break for a wee in peace. She writes about all the nitty gritty details that know one wants to tell you, like you are going to have poo/wee all over you, your tummy isn't going to be flat after birth and will be like a squishy marshmallow, or that it's perfectly normal to feel completely lost the minute your told you can go home with your perfect bundle of joy and wanting a manual on how to work the little milk guzzlers.

Its heartfelt and you can tell how hard she has worked on this book! The hours she must of spent pouring her love and soul into the pages for us all to read. I think she is one incredible lady sharing so much of her private life with her beautiful family and not afraid to step away from the "norm" and do things her own way, plus letting us tag along the way.  I honestly was gutted when I finished reading it and actually want to start it all again once I have got through my next 2 projects.

Even if your not a parent, reading this you can relate to her through our own rollercoaster of lives that we lead. It's hard not to nod and agree, or shout "go girl" or do a virtual fist bump or high five whatever the young ones do nowadays when they immensely agree ((god I feel old)). 

I highly recommend reading "Happy Mum, Happy Baby" to everyone. Who ever reads it will not be disappointed at all it is amazing. One of the best books I have ever had the privilege to read and now review.

I give Happy Mum Happy Baby a massive 10/10 you won’t be able to put it down!!!

"Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other.

But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'Advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.
Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.
This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience – Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us – instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.
