Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

I'll Be Damned, Book 1 of the Anna Wolfe Series

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book Length: 437 pages
Publisher: Nevermore Press


A sister kidnapped. 

An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner. 

A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is. 

The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her. 

Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions. 

As the owner of the coffee shop Deja Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld. 

Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is - a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.


...Searing, damp stones press into my cheek, squishing my other eye closed. I sit up, wiping the nasty grime off my face. The slickness of it makes me wince. God knows what it is. I try to take a deep breath, but fail. Breathing is a chore in the dense, blistering air. It feels like I'm inhaling globs of boiling water. I stand, allowing my limbs time to regain their balance. Suddenly, I'm running down a passageway without any light to guide me... Thousands of butterflies take flight in my stomach as a current of air swiftly engulfs me. I'm falling at a high rate of speed, like the dip in a roller coaster, minus the excitement and safety harnesses. I try to scream, but panic hijacks my voice. I hit the bottom hard, miraculously unscathed.
I stand, wiping a sticky substance off my jeans. I try not to dwell on it. Lifting my arms, I extend them in front of me, searching for a doorway. My hands grope over the hundreds of clammy bricks surrounding me like the bottom of a well. In the loud silence, I hear my name, but Janie isn’t calling me. This voice is lower than a whisper, almost inaudible. Am I losing my mind? Confinement in closed quarters and pitch-black darkness have been known to do that. Again, I hear my name... Anna... It echoes off the tightly enclosed walls, and smacks my ears. It grows louder before abruptly stopping. A velvet voice soothes my sore ears, but makes me jump backwards. The back of my head rams the wall, forcing me to slink onto the ground. My muscles tense and my entire body begins to throb. I prop myself against the bricks, hoping it will cease. I attempt to fold my legs into my chest, but they rebel in pain. I focus my thoughts on survival, rather than the insects I know must be blanketing the ground...

Saved by the Spell, Book 2 of the Anna Wolfe Series

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book Length: 174 pages


Two worlds in danger. 

A Grand Witch behind bars. 

A stunning Werewolf and a devilishly handsome Warlock’s pursuit for her affections. 

You think you have it bad? Grand Witch Anna Wolfe awakens to find herself imprisoned by Micah, the Prince of Darkness. Micah’s on a quest for world domination—and it’s not just the Netherworld that’s in danger. The human world is threatened as well. Now, it’s up to Anna to escape from Micah's clutches so she can locate The Scholars and an ancient book before both fall into the wrong hands. 

With a fiercely loyal Werewolf and immensely powerful Warlock by her side, what can go wrong? 

A lot apparently. 

If fighting off the Prince of Darkness wasn’t enough, Anna’s emotions are a whirlwind, as she battles between what fate demands and what she actually wants.


...His magic continues its course through me, draining all of mine. I need to resist... to fight him. I have to do something before he has the chance to completely snuff me out or find The Scholars. My jaw clenches and my hands roll into tight balls. My shoulders tense, preparing myself for the upcoming battle. I focus all of my energy into stopping him. Bit by bit, my magic shoves its way past his like a bully on a schoolyard. His grip stiffens. A trickle of blood glides down the side of my forearm from his piercing fingernails.
“Go ahead, Anna, fight me. I guarantee it will only hurt you more.”
I throw every memory and emotion Micah has created or tarnished, tossing them into the raging furnace of hate burning inside of me. I slam my eyelids shut and Valen’s face pops inside my head. I need to get back to him. I squeeze my eyes tightly, channeling all the vigor I have, hoping to push Micah out. A fissure breaks right down the middle of his magic, allowing mine to explode to the surface. I feel his power retreat as mine conquers his. I flip my eyes open, stealing a glimpse of his face...


I was born in Philadelphia, PA and grew up in the suburban outskirts of this amazing city. I love anything paranormal and/or supernatural - seriously I live in Philadelphia! For those of you who don’t know, this city is an awesomely haunted place! This healthy paranormal addiction has provided me the motivation to write my first book, “I’ll Be Damned.”

I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and I'm currently working on the Anna Wolfe Series.

Book One:  I’ll be Damned:
So some families aren’t close, but even in those that are sometimes there can be secrets.  Anna’s family has a secret and it’s her.  They never told her that she was a witch and now it’s a problem.  She’s being stalked by the Prince of Darkness, one sister is missing, and one is involved... and she just has one month to learn everything she needs to know to survive.  That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Book Two:  Saved by the Spell:

Anna and her friends: which now include her werewolf lover, a warlock, a shadow-shifter, her sister, a psycic that can see ghosts and a flamboyantly gay man; are on the run from the Prince of Darkness.  Anna is in love with the werewolf and drawn to the warlock, could things get any messier?  Well how about the fact that the wolf-man is an angel?  Now can they survive to save the human race or will they all die trying?

This series is fabulous.  I cannot wait for book three, especially since book 2 ends on a tearjerker...I hate that.  Well written and compelling these books pull you into Anna’s life where you are alternately charmed and worried.  Anna is a herione that has normal doubts about herself.  When she does fight, there are fatigue and unconciousness.  She doesn’t think she is good enough.  In other words, she is someone just like you and me.  This is someone I could be friends with, and that is what makes her such a great heroine.  She is totally relatable.

I give these books 5 out of 5 clouds and anxiously await book 3.

Book Review of Tranaformed

Book Review of Tranaformed
Sponsored by Booksniffers Book Tours

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Title: Transformed
Author: E.V. Fairfall 
Genre: Paranormal, Romance 
Age Group: Young Adult
Publisher: R Mind 
Release Date: February 1, 2014

Since the beginning, two entities have had complete, unquestioned control over Thea: the Earth and God.

But when Thea suddenly figures out that the Earth has trapped her within a forest, she discovers that the only way to set herself free is to break God's one rule; she must forsake her animal form and become human.

The result is nothing she could ever have expected. Lost within the torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is and even begins to fall in love with the one thing she always hated: a hunter.

As her act against God proves more problematic than anticipated, it is only a matter of time before her punishment may prove to be worse than Earth's entrapment.

Author Information: 

I love to write just as much as I love to read. I try to read a book per week, which doesn't always work out, but it's the thought that counts. Aside from all that I am a huge animal person.

Transformed is my first novel, but it isn't my first publication; I've had several short stories published over the last two years. My main goal as a writer is to explore humanity and to give people something fun to read.




Such an emotionally wrenching book.  I laughed and cried and laughed and cried and…well you get the idea.  What if god or the higher power, creator, etc. was energy that came to earth and accidentally destroyed all life.  Then used his light to create a being to share the earth with and to help him create new life.  Her purpose was to lead the new creations to live in harmony with the animals, but things got messed up and he never could let her go.  Then one day the Earth forced his hand.  This is the story of that woman, created in the beginning, as she achieves or finds her purpose.

It is a story of love, loss, joy, regret, and hope.  I give this story 5 out of 5 clouds.

Book Review of The Book of Bart

Sponsored by BookSniffers Book Tours

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Title: The Book of Bart
Author: Ryan Hill
Genre: Paranormal
Age Group: Young Adult
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Release Date: May 22, 2014
Links: Goodreads

Only one thing is so powerful, so dangerous that Heaven and Hell must work together to find it: the Shard of Gabriel.

With a mysterious Black Cloud of Death hot on the shard’s trail, a desperate Heaven enlists the help of Bart, a demon who knows more about the shard than almost anyone. Six years ago, he had it in his hands. If only he’d used it before his coup to overthrow the devil failed. Now, he’s been sprung from his eternal punishment to help Samantha, an angel in training, recover the shard before the Black Cloud of Death finds it.

If Bartholomew wants to succeed, he’ll have to fight the temptation to betray Samantha and the allure of the shard. After an existence full of evil, the only way Bart can get right with Hell is to be good.

Growing up, Ryan Hill used to spend his time reading and writing instead of doing homework. This resulted in an obsession with becoming a writer, but also a gross incompetence in the fields of science and mathematics. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Ryan has been a film critic for over five years. He lives in Raleigh, NC, with his dog/shadow Maggie. Ryan also feels strange about referring to himself in the third person.

Samantha burst out of The House of the Rising Sun, trying to catch up to me. “Wait. Where are you going?”
I waved her off. “You’re on your own, kiddo.”
“Where are you going?”
“Wherever the day takes me. Disney World. The moon. I don’t know and I don’t care.” I lit a cigarette and took a drag. “I’m not messing with a female demon, or whatever it is,” I said, exhaling through my nose. “You think I’m bad? I at least have fun when I’m working. Those harpies just…they take things way too seriously.”
Female demons are the worst. So insecure. One look at another woman and next thing you know, the Titanic is sinking. Believe me, I know from experience.
“How can I stop one of them from getting the Shard?”
I stopped and turned around, moving within inches of her face. “They probably already have it. Why else would Pierce have attacked me? Why do you think we got jumped at the museum?”
Samantha shrugged. “I’m not sure.”
“Right,” I snapped. Lies. Or as angels call it, distortion of the truth. Anger boiled in my veins. I considered letting my horns out to play. It would be nothing to ram them through her chest, ruining her perfect C-cups. “So tell me, little miss angel face, why should I help you when you won’t tell me what you know?”
Samantha bit her lower lip, like she carefully considered what to say next. A wise move. I wanted to impale her like a matador.
“Well?” I pressed the button on my keyless entry to unlock my car. “I don’t have all day. I’d like to deflower a virgin or two before sundown.”
Her expression became stolid. “I can’t believe you’re scared,” she said derisively. “You. A demon. Afraid of a girl.”
She laughed and laid a hand on the roof of my Benz, adding to her offense.
I’d have removed her hand from her body, but she’d called out my demonhood, and addressing that took precedence. Nobody accused me of being afraid.
“Scared?” I spit out my cigarette. “I’m not scared. I’m just smart enough to know when to close up shop. You don’t have any idea what you’re talking about.”
“Maybe you’re right.” Samantha’s lips curled upward. “Maybe they did send me the wrong demon. Next time I’ll make sure they send me someone who knows how to finish the job.”
Oh, that burned. This girl was good. And I bought into it, because to be fair, why should I stand idly by and let somebody else succeed in my stead? I wanted to pat her on the back for such a fine manipulation, but thought better of it.


The Book of Bart is funny, poignant and striking.  The idea of heaven and hell working together is a great one.  The best part is that both sides bring each a little closer to the middle.  Bart, the demon who hates being called Bart preferring Bartholomew, teams up with archangel to be Sam to save the Shard from someone….they just don’t know who.  Along the way they end up going up against more than they originally anticipated.  And the real threats are not at all what they expected.
Well written and charming, I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.

Book Review of Lichgates (The Grimoire Saga #1)

Book Review of Lichgates (The Grimoire Saga #1)

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.


The final page will leave you breathless.

When Kara Magari uncovers a secret door in the middle of the forest, she discovers (and trips through) a portal to a hidden world full of terrifying things: Ourea. She just wants to go home, but the natives have other plans for her. She clashes with immortal shapeshifters, is carried off by a dragon, nearly dies on several occasions, and somehow becomes the master of an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire. Every time she thinks she's safe, her new "friends" show their true colors.

Kara needs an ally, or she might not survive Ourea's monsters. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn't know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this stranded girl, there's something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.

Author Information: 

I believe everyone should be able to find a book that sticks with them forever. Everyone should at some point live the magic of their favorite worlds, characters, and creatures. So when I write, I keep in mind the magic that comes with those eternal stories.

The Grimoire Saga


Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things…and ruthless people. Welcome to Ourea—where only the cunning survive.


Kara ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea. To survive it, she and the man she loves must become the evil each has grown to hate.


Heritage is due in Fall 2013. Buckle up. The war has officially begun.


Illusion, the final novel in the Grimoire Saga, is set to release in Summer 2014.



Lichgates is a story about an alternate world that young Kara stumbles onto by mistake, or not.  While there she finds a book that she opens which makes her the new and last vagabond and keeper of the Grimoire.  She alone is the only person not bound by blood to serve a leader of one of the warring tribes. It is her lot to bring peace, but she is just a young girl who has lost her family.  The one person protecting her is the one person with more to lose than her.  He is the son of the most evil ruler of them all.  Can they trust each other?  Will they be able to bring peace?  Not in this book.

Still this is a wonderful read.  A fascinating look at a new, yet familiar world.  I look forward to reading more of their story and seeing how it turns out. 

I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.
