Book Cover Synopsis

To judge and execute. That is Ruin’s power and desire. But Ruin’s memory is empty of how he came to be here on Earth and why. After saving Isadore– a neuroscientist living in the swamps of Louisiana– from a sexual predator, she volunteers to help him.

Ruin soon discovers that judging and executing wicked humans while linked to such a difficult and beautiful woman who can’t help but involve herself in every aspect of his business, is proving to be more difficult than judging the world

Book cover Review

First off I want to say thank you to MR Bane! This is this first paranormal book I’ve read in over a year and it wasn’t overly paranormal. It was just the perfect amount (not sure if that makes sense but that’s how i feel so deal with it **just kidding**).

Ruin, hot mysterious being what lands on Isadore’s window seal and saves her from being attacked by someone from her past, who has no memory of anything. Isadore a young woman who has moved back to Louisiana to take over her father’s property. Ruin The Walking is a story of both Isadore and Ruin trying to help figure out why he’s on earth and what his purpose is.

So if you’re looking for a light paranormal book or looking to read your first paranormal book then give Ruin The Walking a try. There are NO gruesome scenes but there are a few HOT scenes.

Cover Reveal- Alluring Surrender by Skye Turner

Alluring Surrender


Cruz Edwards is the talented drummer of Bayou Stix, the most famous rock band in the country. Behind his drum set, he’s a god. Playing is his escape from his tormented past. He’s a deeply tortured man and the scars of his conception and parentage run deep, so deep his friends worry that eventually he’ll sink into the abyss of his own making.

Tifanie Jeffries- Bellaforte is a fiercely strong woman. Her upbringing is the polar opposite of Cruz’s. She’s never wanted for anything and comes from one of the most influential families in Louisiana history. Her privileged upbringing smothered her and she’s worked harder than anyone to prove that she is capable of anything she sets her mind to. She is living proof that character and hard work are more important than a family name and wealth. She’s shunned her life of luxury and supports herself as a brilliant paramedic.

Other than being behind his drums, Cruz is used to hiding from the world and only allows his beloved momma and trusted group of friends a front row seat to his true self. Tifanie is used to getting what she wants, not because she feels entitled, but because she’s willing to work for it.

What happens when a strong woman who refuses to give up meets a man who’s only known despair?

What happens when the walls you’ve built around yourself are pulled down one by one?

What happens when the biggest challenge of your life is overcoming yourself?

Sometimes the things that prove you’re strong come from allowing yourself to surrender.

Review~ Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward

Stepbrother Dearest


Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Cover Synopsis

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.

It had been years since I’d seen Elec.

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

Book cover Review

Stepbrother Dearest is the first book I’ve read by Penelope Ward. If her other books are anything like Stepbrother Dearest then I have some MAJOR reading to do.

This book pulled me in right from the very beginning. I had to MAKE myself put the book down and go to bed. Elec is Greta’s stepbrother through marriage who is sent to live with his father and his new family for the school year. This is the first time that Greta has ever met him and she is determined to win him over. Does she succeeded in winning him over or do they kill each other… I’m not saying. If you want to know go 1-click this baby now. You will not be disappointed.

I know this book is a standalone but I have my finger, toes and eyes crossed for more Elec!!!
