Blog Tour – Filthy Jealous Heir #2 by Caitlyn Dare

Release Date: January 12

Filthy Jealous Heir: Part Two: A brother's best friend dark bully romance (Heirs of All Hallows’ Book 2)

A brand new dark bully romance series from bestselling author Caitlyn Dare.

He’s filthy. He’s jealous… and he’s determined to make her his.

Reese Whitfield-Brown has been lied to his entire life. But he’s also been lying to himself.

What started as a game to ruin Olivia’s reputation quickly turned into obsession. And now he needs her in a way he doesn’t understand.

Kind. Compassionate. Strong. She sees past all his bullshit.

Reese wants her even though he knows he shouldn’t. Because he can’t be what Olivia needs and when she discovers his true reason for getting close to her, she’ll never look at him the same again.

But Olivia is determined to break down Reese’s defenses and be there for him no matter what.

Because some people deserve a second chance.

Especially, the boy she loves … even when she shouldn’t.

Filthy Jealous Heir: part two is a dark high school bully romance. If possessive, rugby playing alphaholes aren’t your thing, you probably won’t like this book! It should be read after part one.

Filthy Jealous Heir Part 2; Heirs of All Hallows’ #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 12, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Bully Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Fast paced, with great emotional ups and downs from both Olivia and Reese.

There is a lot to unpack in this book, but it never wavered in the intensity. While Olivia and Reese’s HEA was tied up, The Heirs still have more story to tell and I loved getting to know just a bit more about some of the secondary characters who will return in more books.

While Olivia and Reese circle around their feelings and what that could mean for a future, it also meant that Reese had to fess up to everything, but I loved how the story played out for Reese to make amends, which not only included Olivia, but also his friends.

Also, about that future, it involved part of this fantastic girl crew that Olivia surrounded herself with. One being Reese’s fiancé, Abigail, and another included a fierce girl that grates on every nerve of Olivia’s twin brother, Oakley. Everything about their whole dynamic is delicious. This girl group, aside from the relationship that brewed between Reese and Olivia, totally made the book worth reading.

About Savage Lies

Brought down by a kiss.

Blackmailed by the class MVP.

On the brink of destruction.

Moving to a new town and taking on a new identity was supposed to keep me safe. News flash, it didn’t. Instead, it put me right into the most dangerous place imaginable. Cole Savage’s line of sight.

Stupid, perfect, and one of four members of the untouchable elite. They’re the Academy’s football stars, gods among their peers. And from the first day of school, he put a target on my back. All because of one stupid kiss.

My secrets are dark and dangerous. But based on the fury that drives Cole to ruin me, so are his. We’re both facing destruction, and he’s determined not to let me win.

He doesn’t know it, but he’s met his match. I’ll use his hate, and I’ll teach him that it burns as hot as his lust. And if he wants a war, I’ll give him one.

Savage Lies is an enemies-to-lovers, new adult, high school bully romance with plenty of angst. This book contains mature content that some readers may find disturbing. It is not a standalone and does end in a cliffhanger that continues with a ton of heat and a HEA in Savage Truth.

Review – Dirty Crazy Bad #2 by Siobhan Davis

Dirty Crazy Bad; Dirty Crazy Bad #2
(#2 of a duet)

Publication Date: December 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Secret Society/Intrigue/New Adult/Dark/Bully/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

What a thrilling and emotional conclusion to Dirty Crazy Bad!

I expected action, I expected passion, and I also expected a wonderful plot, but what I wasn’t prepared for was the big emotional upheaval that surrounded one tattooed, pierced, and kinky man- named Ares.

Ares continued to surprise me throughout this entire duet, but was especially moved during the second half of this duet. I loved his character growth, but it was his big emotional surprises that kept me guessing on how he was going to react OR not react to everyone that revolved in his life that really touched me. The strife he felt, the weight he carried on his shoulders was felt by everyone around him and it rolled off the pages.

It was apparent that while Ashley was the center of the guys’ worlds, Ares really took center stage when it came to how she moved forward with the whole poly relationship between Jase, Chad and Ares. It wasn’t really meant to be conceited, Ares struggle just ran deeper and watching him navigate it hit right in the feels. ❤️

While Ares was a wonderful complex character, Jase was my loveable favorite- checking off all the boxes I love in a strong MC. His steadiness and strength was easily the best thing about him in this second half of the book and I adored his outlook on their shared relationship when asked how they made it work; Ashley is the center and what she wants she gets…um, yes please!! Can all men take a lesson from Jase? He’s no pushover, especially when it comes to Ashley. He’s the solid strength when she needs whenever she needs it. It’s no wonder he’s my fav. 🥰

I don’t want to say too much about Chad, other than he has a lot of making up to do from the first book. However, he’s so easily forgiven after what he goes through in this one. Now my lips are sealed on Ashley’s first love. I don’t want to categorize him as third, because I also love him dearly and its also hard to choose. I love that Ashley doesn’t settle for choosing either. 😍

Speaking of Ashley, while she isn’t a replica of Lo, because this isn’t Lo’s book, it’s Ashley’s and she is fierce in her own way. Ashley is sweet, sensative, intelligent, and hardcore all rolled into one. She fights for her men while feeling things very deeply. Ashley also realizes that she wants all three men in her life, but she won’t push any of them into something they weren’t comfortable with or that they didn’t want. She’s sort of an empath mixed with a warrior and it’s a great mix and very appropriate for the three men in her life.🔥🔥🔥

Dirty Crazy Bad has a lot of plot wrapped up with the secret society, but not too much that you can’t keep up with everyone involved or all the secondary characters that evolve from it. It is the perfect mix of suspenseful swirled with passion and now that we know all of the players, I’d love to return to this world and get to know a few more of the characters.

Synopsis:
The second book in the Dirty Crazy Bad duet.

In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…

The Greed & Gluttony Luminary has trapped us into executing his evil plans, and it seems we have little option but to agree. Carter has orchestrated Chad’s kidnapping, and he holds my mom’s life in his hands.

Then he drops a game-changer

We must play our parts—or at least look like we are—because the fate of our loved ones, and the world at large, depends upon it. There is no choice.

It’s a delicate balancing act, with many obstacles and no guarantee of success. Carter has spent years planning his takeover and knowing who to trust is impossible.

Teamwork is the only way we can defeat him. But that is challenging when relationships are fractured, the guys are sworn enemies, and loyalties have been pushed to their limits.

It’s up to me to make this work, so I will push my grief aside to be there for Ares, Jase, and Chad.

Rhett Carter cannot become Lord of the Luminaries and we’re the only ones that can stop him.

Review – Filthy Jealous Heir #1 by Caitlyn Dare

Filthy Jealous Heir; Heirs of All Hallows’ #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: December 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/New Adult/Secret Society/Sports/Enemies-to-Lovers/Bully Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Caitlyn Dare brings us a new world where several bad boys belong to a hypocritical-long-standing-tradition secret society. One that I feel the women in this world won’t just roll over and just beg at their feet. Filthy Jealous Heir was dark and delicious in only the best way an enemies-to-lovers story can be.

Yes, I do love a really good bad boy, but Caitlyn Dare also loves bringing us the equally good bad girl to rile those bad boys right up. Honestly, those books from Dare are my favorite and so far this first part of FJH is falling right into that category.

I would recommend reading the prequel for some reference. It covers the initiation along some other vital information between everyone and where a lot of the animosity between everyone stems from.

While Reese makes it pretty clear that he dislikes Olivia she also makes it clear that she is not a girl who backs down or rolls over when Reese pushes her around. She grew up with all of the Heirs and while her twin brother is initiated into the society and is uber protective of her, if there is anyone who might have more sway over her it’s her twin. Aside from that Olivia has a voice and she gets a  little tired of the “boys will be boys” phrase her dad tosses out or even walking down memory lane as he glosses over her comments and basically pats her on the head. I feel Olivia is going to bring a day of wreckening and I can hardly wait.

Reese is filled with some dark secrets and yet, he is also filled with a lot of regret. I don’t believe he’s entirely looking to ruin people for the sake of being a total douche, although a lot of his actions sort of lead us down that path…he’s angry, he’s definitely hurt, and he’s lashing out because of everything that is pent up and out of his control. I’m calling him a lion with a thorn in his paw and he believes that Olivia is a mouse. Did that fable work out well for both animals, maybe I need to brush up on my Aesop, either way…I can hardly wait for the continuation of this story since we were left with a whopper of a cliffhanger. Will the lion catch his mouse once the thorn is removed or will the mouse run away?

Synopsis:

A brand new dark bully romance series from bestselling author Caitlyn Dare.

The Heirs of All Hallows’ are waiting to corrupt you…

Twisted Secrets really was the perfect title for this perfectly twisted finale. Not only were there multiple secrets revealed, but there was also twisted up feelings, twisted up friendships, suspense and mayhem was also twisted up in this gloriously page turning finale. Everything was brilliantly tied up and I was spectacularly happy with twisted up ending.

Whew…I wonder if I can fit the words; twists and secrets, a few more times in this review??

As for Scar and her three men…well, I’ll leave with this…they go through a lot in this final book. Neo doesn’t make anything easy on anyone, but as we’ve come to know, that’s just Neo. However, the darker the antihero, the deeper we all seem to fall, so Neo gives quite a ride to say the least. As for Crew and Jagger, they get their moments too, because this wouldn’t be a finale if they remained a silent doormat.

Twisted Secrets is twisted, there are a lot of turns and secrets that I never saw coming, and this last book is stuffed full of emotions, which I don’t want to say threw me, but it was another twist.

This entire trilogy was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved diving into this dark, depraved world and would totally recommend to anyone who loves reading morally gray characters.

Synopsis:

The Lawless have been many things:

My friends,

My enemies,

And now my lovers.

All but one…

Neo Saint—my villain dressed in leather with the body of a god and a heart made of stone.

He blames me for his misfortunes.

Wants me to feel his pain.

It’s time he learns I’m not who he thinks I am.

Someone is out there,

opening old wounds and creating new scars.

It won’t be easy bringing these twisted secrets to light,

but it’s the only chance we have of freedom before the darkness consumes us all.

The games might not be over,

but I’m no longer playing alone.

This series must be read in order for the best enjoyment:

Review – Brutal Obsession by S. Massery

Brutal Obsession by S. Massery

Brutal Obsession
(Standalone)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Enemies-to-Lovers/Sports Romance/Bully Romance

Author: S.Massery

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dark and brutal, and extremely obsessive! In case I need to say that again….Dark and brutal with a severe case of the obsessiveness!! Greyson is no joke, but if that is totally your jam…continue on.

Greyson has grown up an entitled son to a senator. He is used to getting everything he wants and getting out of every situation because of who he is, but in one night when he collides with Violet his entitled life changes. Then when life sends Violet right into his path a few months later Greyson decides to take his anger out on her. Ruthlessly, with pain, and maliciously. Remember that warning from up above, Greyson does not hold back. He is the quintessential antihero.

Violet’s life changed in an instant when Greyson first entered it, but she never expected to see him months later after she was trying to get her life back on track. Greyson taunts her, stalks her, and pushes every button until Violet pushes back. Violet has a strong friendship base by her side, which helps tremendously in keeping her sanity, but Violet is no shrinking flower, she’s strong in her own right and Greyson didn’t realize his prey wasn’t quite so weak.

These two circle each other as their demons come out to play, but if you are looking for sunshine and daisies, this book isn’t filled with them. Brutal Obsession is dark and filled with potential triggers, if you happen to be sensitive to those, so know your limits. As for myself, I rather enjoyed the ride watching how they circled each other like predators, wondering if they would survive. Plus, I loved the character growth from who they were from the beginning to who they evolved into by the end. I was riveted through the entire book.

Synopsis:
I had a foolproof plan.
Finish college playing the best sport on earth. Hockey.
Get drafted by an NHL team.
Make my senator father at least a little proud of me.

I was on track to do just that… until Violet Reece and I collided. Literally.

Turns out, my plan didn’t account for a night in jail-and the news articles that followed it.
Everything fell apart after that.

New school, new hockey team. And a resentment like I’ve never felt before directed at the girl who set me off course.

Lucky for me, she attends this new school of mine.
And there are a thousand ways to ruin her.

He shattered my leg, and now he wants to ruin the rest of me.

Greyson Devereux is a menace–but only to me.
To everyone else, he’s charismatic.
He’s the son of a senator and the star of the university’s hockey team.

When all I want is to be invisible, he drags me into the spotlight.
He wants my blood, my fear, my attention.

Resisting him only worsens his obsession.
Fighting solidifies it.

He’s brutal, and he draws out a sick darkness in me that enjoys it.
But I’ll be damned if I let him become my downfall.

Book Cover

Vicious Lies; Bastards of Boulder Cove #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Antihero/Dark/Reverse Harem/Secret Society/Bully Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Things are heating up and getting more twisted as the plot thickens. It’s delicious and suspenseful and you won’t be able to put it down.

While there have always been intense feelings between Jagger, Crew, Scar and Neo, whether it was anger, hate or something else now that Crew and Scar have become an official couple Jagger is wondering if he should have made his feelings known sooner.

Vicious Lies dives deeper into the past relationship between Jagger and Scar as well as how he could potentially fit with Crew and her now. He isn’t there to mess up what they have, but he also isn’t willing to walk away from what he feels for her, what he’s always felt for her.

I love Jagger and how he handles his friendships along with his feelings for Scar. She too doesn’t back down with the intense emotions she’s feeling for both guys and stirring deep inside, and I mean deep down inside is something else for the third guy in residence, Neo. Mostly it’s hate, but you know right there next to hate…well, we’ll just have to see.

For Scar, there is a really nice balance between a sweet and loving Crew, a spicy and protective Jagger and I can just picture a total Dom of an alphahole in Neo, but I’m totally here and ready to find out.

Plus…the mystery of who is stalking Scar and wanting to bring everyone down, I can’t wait to find out how it all ends.

Blog Tour – Vile Boys by AJ Merlin

Release Date: September 18

Winter Grove University is the dream school for anyone who wants to get somewhere in life, no matter if you’re an alpha, beta, or even an omega.

It’s almost impossible to get in. So when I beat the odds, I know it’ll be life changing.

I just don’t expect death on campus during orientation, or a warning to stay in my lane if I want to get through the next four years successfully.

Not that I’m worried, or anything.

That is, until the three most influential boys of Winter Grove decide to dedicate the semester to making my life a living hell for reasons that probably aren’t my fault.

Foster, Dorian, and August know how to hold a grudge. And they’re not willing to let me forget any slight I may have committed against them. Now, with three boys making my life hell and bodies piling up around campus, I have to wonder if maybe I should stop worrying about my grades and instead focus on the two alphas and a beta who can’t seem to leave me alone or the killer who might be closer than we thought.

Vile Boys is the first book in the Knot Their Toy duet and includes omegaverse, M/M, poly, and bullying.

Vile Boys; Knot Their Toy #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Omegaverse/Reverse Harem/Bully Romance

Author: AJ Merlin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is unlike other omegaverse books I’ve read before. These alphas, betas, and omegas aren’t completely overrun by their baser instincts. Instead, their senses are more like sizzling under their skin instead of a constantly raging inferno, if that makes sense.

The entire book is told from Mercy Noble’s POV. This is her first year attending Winter Grove University and she’s one of the very few students there on scholarship. While she gets some snide comments about it, Mercy has a great outlook and instead reverses a lot of bad behavior directed to her because she’s super smart and earned her spot at a top rated university. She also has a hearing impairment, which she wears aids for, but instead of letting it get to her she tackles every challenge head on. She’s an amazing lead character, especially when she begins to get bullied by three boys and she doesn’t back down.

Dorian, August & Foster are their own pack, but when Mercy makes a mistake they don’t easily forgive, nor do they her life any easier for it. The buildup to what will happen between them kept the pages turning and how they would torment her until things got heated.

Because this wasn’t like other omegaverse books I’ve read with the normal base instincts that would drive alphas and omegas crazy, it made this plot completely unique in reading. I’m highly curious where these characters will go in another book, because again I’m completely intrigued.

Review – Bloody Cruel Monster by Lucy Smoke

Bloody Cruel Monster; Sick Boys #6
(#2 within a duet, #6 within a series)

Publication Date: August 26, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Bully Romance

Author: Lucy Smoke

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Picking right up where the last book left off Bloody Cruel Monster hardly leaves time to rest. It’s fast paced, bloody – as the title suggests – and full of twists.

At twenty-two the boys are beginning to feel old and recognize that perhaps their old ways need to change. That their group is growing and that looking towards the future isn’t a curse word. Once they take care of the problem, literally sitting in their living room – Ace and by association, Clover, they might just get to do that.

As a member of the Undead, Ace has brought trouble to these boys time and again, and now they want payment in the form of his sister, Clover, but Brax won’t have it. She’s his and no one takes what belongs to him. However, Clover refuses to belong to anyone, but the Undead seem to think otherwise.

Clover is tough and her monsters have come out to play, even with Brax. She doesn’t sit back and let someone fight for her. Not her brother, not the other Sick Boys, and especially not Brax. If the Undead want her, bring it on, she will go down fighting. I do admire her fighting spirit, especially when fighting with the Undead.

Brax struggles with his dominating ways. He wants to lock up Clover and never let her leave, but he also loves watching her fight. His duality is something he struggles with, but his vulnerability is quite beautiful in this book and sometimes I want to slap Clover for not noticing it sooner. However, eventually we get to see that these two are perfect together as his monster loves her no matter what.

This book is bloody and gruesome, at times, and is not for the faint of heart. But for anyone who loves dark, and hard won romance, this book is sinfully perfect.

Synopsis:
It will end the same way it started … with death.

Clover

I gave Braxton Smalls everything. I sacrificed myself and all I ended up with was a broken heart and a shattered soul. Now, I’ve got bigger things to worry about than an angry Eastpoint Heir hot on my trail.

Brax may be the psycho who kidnapped me–but he’s nothing compared to the organization my brother works for.

And me? I’m the monster ready to wreck them all.

Braxton

I live for vengeance. That’s all I know, all I see. Until her. Until Clover La Roux. No … until Evgenia Volkov. Daughter of a Russian mobster. Sister to the man who tortured one of my best friends. The only woman to ever satisfy the cruel desires inside of me.

Whoever took her will pay with their lives. And once I have her back, I’ll make sure she can never leave me again. Consequences be damned.

Blog Tour – The Sight of Flames by AJ Merlin

Release Date: August 10

Four hundred years ago, my ancestor led an uprising against the Witch’s Council.

And failed miserably.

Now her descendants and those of her supporters must serve as Wardens to help protect witch-kind, though we’re relegated to being second best and the first ones thrown into danger. The Disgraced, as we’re called, are meant to suck it up and be grateful.

But there’s too much of my ancestor in me to bow to any witch, no matter that I’m Disgraced and an omega. When I enroll in war college to learn to do my duty as a Disgraced Warden and witch omega, I have a feeling that I’m not going to be very popular with my superiors. Let alone any other alphas that cross my path.

To make things worse for everyone an old enemy has returned to hunt us, and whispers of unrest are circulating like the witch plague.

I may be Disgraced, an omega, and the last of my line, but I’m not going to just roll over and accept my fate. Not for the council, a coven, or anyone else.

The Sight of Flames is the first in the Disgraced Magic series. It’s a witchy omegaverse RH/poly romance where the main character and her coven never have to choose.

I may be Disgraced, an omega, and the last of my line, but I’m not going to just roll over and accept my fate. Not for the council, a coven, or anyone else.

The Sight of Flames is the first in the Disgraced Magic series. It’s a witchy omegaverse RH/poly romance where the main character and her coven never have to choose.

Review – Savage Kings by L.M. Harrison

60750160. sy475

Savage Kings; Savages of Kingsworth #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: August 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Reverse Harem/Bully Romance

Author: L.M. Harrison

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Mystery, very-dark broody bad boys, and a girl that takes no grief from anyone….step into the Kingdom if you dare.

Grace Lilley is a girl that never knows when to stop running her mouth. She is very aware of this bad habit of hers, it is essentially what gets her into trouble and basically shipped off to Kingsworth in the first place, but she also never seems to stop this bad habit of hers.

There is a LOT of moving parts and shrouded darkness in this book. Grace is constantly told to leave Kingsworth when she was forced to attend it in the first place. Why? I’m not entirely sure, yet. There is also a lot of mystery surrounding her background, but I won’t focus on that here, as it’s part of that overall intrigue factor that’s wound throughout the story and I don’t want to spoil it. However, I will say this, for all intents and purposes she goes into Kingsworth alone so it’s easy for her to be singled out and bullied, but the majority of that bullying doesn’t come from whom you’d expect. Although I’m still trying to piece together who some of the players are, as this is just the first book in this series and like I said, there is a bigger puzzle to solve and as a reader we’ve only been given a fraction of the pieces.

This is a reverse harem story and wowza!! One of the love interests…oh my…he is one of those love to hate and hate to love types. Due to the dubious nature of the story their chemistry wasn’t completely in your face, but like I said he does grow on you and with a harem there is always support when the hating becomes too much. That is what makes a harem so wonderful…right?!?

Just when things were really heating up and the plot was getting juicy of course the book leaves us on a cliffhanger….so I’m left here needing more and I’m dying to know how everything turns out for Grace.

Synopsis:
You know that trending video?

The one of those Kingsworth guys and that random poor girl?

Yeah, that was me.
I’m also the one who posted the video because humiliating them?
It was strangely… satisfying.

Of course, that was before I knew who they were.

Ezra Covington. Bellamy Thorn. Dashiell Laurier.
The politician’s son. The future Duke of Ashwood. And the man whose father just bought my sister’s foreclosure.
Three beautiful, cruel savages used to control.
Three untouchable royals who were just … well, royally touched.

The good news is my sister will get to stay in her house. They’re also giving me a full-ride scholarship to Kingsworth Prep.

Which is the bad news.

Because now that I have the royals’ attention, they’re not letting me go. Not without punishing me. Ruining me. Exposing my demons.

Little do they know, my demons bite back.

And that makes me just as savage as any king.

WARNING: Savage Kings is a bully romance that contains graphic content and situations that might make some readers uncomfortable. It is a reverse harem novel, meaning the heroine has more than one love interest. It is book 1 in the Savages of Kingsworth series and ends in a cliffhanger.

Review – The Sight of Flames by AJ Merlin

61417145. sy475

The Sight of Flames; Disgraced Magic #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: August 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Fantasy/Omegaverse/New Adult/Bully/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: AJ Merlin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The Sight of Flames had everything I love in a fantasy novel, plus everything I love in a bully reverse harem book. This book literally combined the best of everything I love to read with a kicka$$ heroine and a fantastic plot! I’m really looking forward to what’s coming up in the next book.

Arsena, or Sen, as she prefered to be called by her friends, had the weight of her ancestors on her shoulders ever since her birth. Not only does she look just like her great, so many greats ancestor, but she also possessed her magic. Suffice to say with both of those attributes people tended to give her a wide berth, but when it was time to attend Citadel, sort of like a school for witches, Arsena knew she wouldn’t have the best of times, but she pulled up her big girl britches and kicked butt time and again.

Arsena was nothing short of amazing. Her spirit for not putting up for any crap and standing up for the little guy was comending. She herself was put into the category of lesser than, but she refused to stay there, even when she knew her heritage made it harder for her. The friends she made, which became extremely important to her in the long run, which I won’t give away, because a lot of the story is who gathers around her and it’s sooooooo good and angsty, but I adored those that chose to stay by her side.

The fantasy part of this story had great twists. Not only are the witches gifted with fantastic powers, but their basic, earth, wind, fire and water powers are wrapped up in so much more. Those skills made the book exciting, adventuresome and even a little nerve wracking at times. I won’t give away what those powers were, but wow!!! It made for great reading.

This is only the first book in the series and it does end on a cliffhanger just as the story was really taking off. I can’t wait to jump back in and see where they all go and how everyone gets along.

Synopsis:
Four hundred years ago, my ancestor led an uprising against the Witch’s Council.

And failed miserably.

Now her descendants and those of her supporters must serve as Wardens to help protect witch-kind, though we’re relegated to being second best and the first ones thrown into danger. The Disgraced, as we’re called, are meant to suck it up and be grateful.

But there’s too much of my ancestor in me to bow to any witch, no matter that I’m Disgraced and an omega. When I enroll in war college to learn to do my duty as a Disgraced Warden and witch omega, I have a feeling that I’m not going to be very popular with my superiors. Let alone any other alphas that cross my path.

To make things worse for everyone an old enemy has returned to hunt us, and whispers of unrest are circulating like the witch plague.

I may be Disgraced, an omega, and the last of my line, but I’m not going to just roll over and accept my fate. Not for the council, a coven, or anyone else.

The Sight of Flames is the first in the Disgraced Magic series. It’s a witchy omegaverse RH/poly romance where the main character and her coven never have to choose.

Blurb:
A psychopath and his prey.
A dangerous, toxic, and utterly destructive love story…

He could have been my hero.
He saved my life that night, a beautiful dark angel slicing through my fear and the water, dragging me from its deadly clutches.
He should have been my hero.
I thought maybe he was.

Villains aren’t supposed to win, and good should always conquer evil, but in the elite coastal town I live in, the only purpose a label has is letting you know what something—or someone—costs. Good, bad; it’s all relative, and it hardly matters. Baymont, California, is a land of beautiful villains and happy-ever-afters that are just out of reach.

Especially for me.

Until Dare moves the world beneath my feet, and even though I’m afraid to trust it—to trust him—boy, am I tempted.
In more ways than one.
Being with Dare is scary, but being without him is impossible.
He makes it impossible.

Dare’s no hero, that much is clear, but maybe…
Maybe he’s mine.

This story contains triggers and is intended only for a mature, adult audience. See the opening author’s note for more explicit warnings, but know this is a very dangerous relationship with a very dark hero.
