Bring on 2017

Hey, friends!

As New Year’s Eve approaches you will notice me on less and less. I’m trying to spend some much-needed quality time with family and get organized on the business side of things.

Towards the end of January, my first book is being released. Once I know the release date I will make a huge announcement so anyone can preorder at that time. Be on the look out for sign-up forms for ARCs. I will be sharing that soon and will edit this post to add the link once up.

In case you missed it, I shared this teaser on Facebook.

Review – Blackwing Wolf

Blackwing Wolf is the second book in Kane’s Mountains.

5 out of 5 Stars

14380090_342507422756590_864987183338302500_o.jpg

Official Synopsis:

Dustin Porter is walking a fine line between the Blackwing Crew and the Valdoro pack. He’s been sent to betray Kane, but there’s a complication, and that complication is a smart-mouthed beauty who is also vying for a coveted spot on the crew. Dustin can’t keep his attention from Emma for long, and the more he gets to know about her, the more mysterious she seems. She is making him want to be a better man, but he’s in way too deep, and now he’ll have to choose a side. Too bad choosing could get him and the woman he loves killed.

Emma is a human on a mission: make it onto the Blackwing Crew. So when Dustin Porter, sexy werewolf with one helluva sense of humor, suggests they pretend to fall for each other, she’s pretty sure he has the worst ideas on the planet. That is, until his plan works a little too well, and now Emma is in way over her head. Dustin hasn’t been honest with her, and what she doesn’t know could get her hurt, but as she gets to know the witty werewolf, she begins to realize there is more to Dustin than meets the eye.

She’s falling hard for a man destined to betray the crew she loves, and now all that stands between him and oblivion…is her.

My Official Goodreads Review: Wow! All of TS’s books have a similar feel to them, they’re all connected. The stories are intertwined and you always get thrown for a loop to something broader that you couldn’t have expected that pulls you in deep. Dustin and Emma’s story was full of twists! If you’ve read her other books you probably were intrigued by Dustin’s character before as well, why did he want to be a part of Kane’s Crew so bad? I was not expecting the answer that I got, it hadn’t even occurred to me. TS does it again with another beautifully written story that pulls you in and pays tribute to the wide variety of characters in the world she has created.

Review – Blackwing Defender

Blackwing Defender is the first in the Kane’s Mountains series

5 out of 5 Stars

13912683_1063106833726966_7212723113025463989_n.jpg

Official Synopsis:

Panther shifter, Winter Donovan, has her life all planned out: claiming marks, marriage, cubs, and pledging to the Red Havoc Crew. But when the man she cares for chooses another, her life gets caught in a tailspin. A new crew announcement could mean a change in her stars, but there is a catch. It’s the Blackwing Crew, and is run by fire-breathing dragon shifters. Not only that, but when she finds her bravery to travel to the Smoky Mountains and apply, the crew has somehow attracted the most damaged and terrifying shifters in the world. And one of those has his sexy eyes on her.

Logan is decisively deadly when it comes to protecting the fledgling Blackwing Crew, but the grizzly in his middle is a monster. He’s here for one reason, and one reason alone – to go out fighting. But the quiet beauty, Winter, has him wishing he could be saved. When the alpha of the new crew, Dark Kane, finds out what Logan really is, the choice of life and death may not be up to him anymore. And now he and Winter will have to go to war if they want a chance at forever.

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

My Official Goodreads Review: I was feeling all the feels! I think I cried more than I have for TS’s other books, it was that good! Winter and Logan’s story is full of ups and downs that have you holding your breath until you finish the chapter. I won’t say anything else because I don’t like spoilers.

Review – Second of the Winterset Coven

Second of the Winterset Coven by T.S. Joyce

5 of 5 Stars

14054579_327915837549082_8902710088526646579_o

Official Synopsis:

****Vampires, shifters, and ghosts collide in this exciting second book in T. S. Joyce’s new Winterset Coven series.****

Dawn Reed is a small town girl looking for a big adventure. She’s been feeling stagnant for a while, but there is a new coven in town and the Second to the king has captured her heart. Garret has been patiently building a slow friendship, but when he cuts her off, Dawn is bereft. Not only is she losing the man she’s falling head-over-heels for, she’s losing her friends in the coven as well. But nothing is what it seems with vampires, and Garret is hiding some monstrous secrets while trying to protect her. And the closer she gets to them, and to him, the more uncertain her survival becomes.

Garret Westergaard has done this before. He’s loved hard and lost, and now the sweet human beauty, Dawn, feels like she could be his everything. Too bad he’s being haunted and hunted by ghosts from his past, because one night of unfortunate events puts her right in the middle of a brewing coven war. When keeping his distance doesn’t work, he’ll have to toe the line between man and monster to keep her safe.

My Official Goodreads Review: Second of the Winterset Coven was a nice surprise! I always wonder before I start reading something with vampires in it if I’m going to like it. This may be because I’ve read so many books with vampires in the last 10 years. I can honestly say this isn’t your average vampire story. T.S. Joyce has a refreshing style with each and every book of hers. I’ve come to the conclusion she can’t write something I won’t like.

Review – Blackwing Dragon

Blackwing Dragon is the final book in TS’s Harper’s Mountains series. 

5 of 5 Stars

13584950_1791751441047134_6278254903436646501_oOfficial Synopsis:

****Don’t miss the epic finale of T. S. Joyce’s bestselling Harper’s Mountains series****

Kane Reeves is being hunted. He has done well to keep hidden all these years, but Damon Daye has finally come to collect on the blood debt of Kane’s father. Damon has sent a great Bloodrunner Dragon after him, and Kane can see his death coming. But his huntress is beguiling and sweet, and Kane is drawn to her in ways he can’t explain. And as he gets to know the sassy beauty, she feels less like the death of him, and more like his destiny. Too bad she’s a Bloodrunner, the mortal enemy of his ancient clan, and on a collision course to end his life.

Rowan Barnett has been charged with the protection of the Bloodrunner Crew while the alpha is unable to shift. The problem? The crew has chosen the wrong dragon for the job. She has no trust for her unstable inner monster, and now she’s lost her treasure. But when a mysterious and unlikely hero decides to help her out, she begins to think everything happens for a reason. Dark Kane’s eyes are terrifying, he feels like a beast, and he looks at her like he could just as easily kill her as kiss her, but there is something about him that Rowan can’t resist. Something that’s calling to her dragon and putting them both on a path of mass destruction.

And now Rowan will have to figure out how to protect the world from the last Blackwing Dragon, while protecting the man she loves from himself.
Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

My Official Goodreads Review: Since the start of T.S. Joyce’s Harper’s Mountain series, I’ve had questions about Dark Kane. Who was he? Why is dark? My curiosity built with each book. I didn’t have any expectations reading his story. It was one I already knew was going to move me to tears. Because that’s what TS does, she pulls at your heart strings. She delivered in such a huge way. Things I had questioned and wondered about answered. I don’t want to give anything away. But trust me when I say that if you loved her others, you’ll love this one. I’m excited and looking forward to her next series.

Review -King of the Asheville Coven

King of the Asheville Coven is a short story that can be read as a stand alone or as a spinoff to her Harper’s Mountains series.

5 of 5 Stars

31072648.jpgOfficial Synopsis:

Aric Teague is the king of the local coven, and trying to do a better job than the last leader. Add to that a new job at the Winterset Fire Department, and the last thing he needs is to complicate his life further. But when he lays eyes on a fiercely beautiful Sadey, all bets are off the table. She’s an unregistered shifter, and his coven is bound to be furious, but he wants to know more about the sassy beauty with all the secrets.

Sadey Lowen is a rare shifter in hiding. All she wants is to keep her life simple, but an accident puts her right in the path of a handsome firefighter with terrifying eyes and fangs to match. Every instinct is screaming for her to run, but the King of the Asheville Coven is slowly working his way into her mind, and her heart.

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy vampire and shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

My Official Goodreads Review: This was a surprise to find! Naturally, I had it downloading the minute I had received the email from TS. This short story is from the point of view of a vampire. First off, I like vampires, I like all types of supernatural and fantasy characters/creatures. That’s just my personality. After the first few books in Harper’s Mountains, I was curious for more information from the coven that was there. This short story delivered another enchanting tale from the mind of TS. And of course, it wouldn’t be a TS book without shifters. My only problem was that the story wasn’t as long as her others, but it was a short story after all. Don’t mind me, I’ll be sitting on the edge of my seat till next month when her next book comes out.

Review – Novak Raven

Novak Raven is the 4th book in Harper’s Mountains by T.S. Joyce

5 of 5 Stars

13558724_303018106705522_4027641963271274060_o.jpgOfficial Synopsis:

His entire life, Weston Novak has been followed by the long shadow of his raven shifter people. He’s kept his distance and settled into the Bloodrunner Crew, but his life has just taken a hard right turn. Not only does he have visions of the future now, but a soft-spoken raven shifter named Avery has just tumbled into his life to shake everything up. He knows she’s here for dark reasons, but he can’t help the bone-deep attraction he feels for her. Avery was born to betray him, and he can see what’s coming for him clear as day, so why can’t he leave the timid beauty alone?

Avery Foley has been connected to the Novak Raven for as long as she can remember. She has lived far away from Weston in Raven’s Hollow, but has never stopped thinking about her childhood pen pal. To escape an unwanted betrothal, she’s lied to the raven council and run deep into the mountains of the Bloodrunner Dragon. She can’t ever meet the terrifying shifters who live here, but their mere existence is protecting her from an empty life.

The Novak Raven doesn’t even know what he’s done for her, and now he’ll save her a second time. He has to because Weston knows better than anyone–you can’t change fate.

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

My Official Amazon/Goodreads Review: “TS Joyce pulls at your heartstrings and makes you look at the world filled with possibilities. This was incredible! No spoilers… but all the feels! I loved exploring Raven’s Hollow more, I didn’t like it… but I loved seeing how it was. The only sad part is knowing there is only one book left in Harper’s Mountains.”
