Awakened From Ice gets Kitty-Katted!

I recently had the pleasure of reading Awakened From Ice by Marisa Chenery. This is book 1 in her werewolf sentinel series and it is an awesome first book.

Cassidy needs to recharge so she decides to go ice caving. But while exploring an unknown cave on a very large glacier she is shocked to find six fully dressed men seemingly dead. And they've been there since the ice age.

Edensaw is the leader of the werewolf sentinels. They are the first werewolves, all others are descended from them. He and his group of warriors have been in a mystic sleep until such time as they are needed to fight the great evil. But Cassidy has accidentally awakened them early.

This book has a bit of everything, humor, danger, an alpha were pack not sure what to do with the sentinels, and of course steamy hot sex. Awakened From Ice is an excellent beginning to what looks like a great series and is available now from Ellora's Cave Publishing. I give this book 5 stars.


Exploring an ice cave on the Mantanuska Glacier in Alaska, Cassidy finds something out of the ordinary—six men dressed in fur and leather, motionless and seemingly dead. But she soon discovers they are very much alive when her touch awakens one and she finds herself pinned beneath his muscular heat in the blink of an eye. 
Edensaw and his wolf brothers have slept for ten thousand years. As ice age Tlingit Indian hunters, they were chosen to be a new race of man, the first werewolves. They are the sentinels, created to protect against evil that is to come. But the touch of one woman ignites his mating urge and Edensaw awakens before he is needed into a world he no longer knows, and to a passion he cannot deny. 
As the couple moves from lust to love, the dark evil brews. Threatening not only to destroy the mating bond, but the sentinels themselves.

BOREALIS ARDOR by Kay Phoenix...Paranormal Romance! Cover done by the brilliant 

Suzannah Safi...who I am awarding a Ladybug Lin Cover Award too...

Ladybug Lin here with a confession to make...I was drawn to this book because of the title...BOREALIS...When I was a little ghoul, (he-he) my mother had a lovely costume jewelry necklace she called 

AURORA BOREALIS...I learned many years later Mom was being probably was not costume jewelry, but real 

opals...still I loved the multi-colored swirls inside the breathtaking beads and spent many a day fantasizing about seeing it wrapped around my neck.

In the beginning of this short story by Kay Phoenix,

I was confused. I could see no correlation to the Borealis imagery promised by the cover...Luckily the story begins in such a way, you don't really give that too much thought...instead you are ensnared in the events unleashed by this intriguing tale and sign on for the whole ride.

Onward I read...I have to admit in all honesty, I was a bit confused, and often found my nose pinched and my eyes narrowed...but I soldiered on...and I'm glad I did. 

This book falls into one of the Muse THEME books...Four Seasons of Passion...This one Winter Winds.

Vampires, werewolves, and serums create the backdrop for this unique book, but you don't find that out, almost until you reach the cunningly crafted ending. (And NO...I will not tell you any more about that. 

I don't do SPOILERS.)


I am awarding this book 4 and 1/2 captivating stars and a 

THANK YOU to Ms. Phoenix. I look forward to reading more of your tales in the days, weeks, months to come.

MAD LOVING short story from NJ WALTERS lands in THE HOT SEAT REVIEWS of Ladybug Lin and Kitty Kat

MAD LOVING...a new short story by Multi-published, Best Selling author, 

NJ WALTERS has landed in THE HOT SEAT.

Okay all...this is me Ladybug Lin flying away from my spring hobby...flitting from 


to daisies, 

to daffodils, to bring you the latest review of books that have landed on...not my bursting rosebush, but my ever blossoming Kindle.

When I was a little girl and watched 

Jiminy Cricket sing "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR"  I wanted...oh how I wanted to step inside a fairy tale, cartoon, or other fantasy book lining my book shelves. 

It took a looonnnggg time for someone to climb inside my mind...okay maybe that's a stretch, but still...bring to me a book dedicated to my childhood wish...but one geared for...uhm...the more adult audience.

NJ WALTERS has given all of us such a short story in MAD LOVING.

His name is Nevar (raven spelled backwards) Hatter and he and his brother Rabb (short for RABBIT) run the trendy New York nightclub HATTER'S. She's Allison Lewis.

Stepping through the rabbit's hole...Allison, born and raised a Midwestern farm girl is not your typical modern, NY girl...but what girl could resist 

a Hatter with a tea party staged just for her?

MAD LOVING is a passionate cup of tea for all of us who once wanted to WISH UPON A STAR. 

NJ WALTERS has bestowed upon all us our living each and every one of us can REALLY imagine walking into. For that alone this will become a classic 

adult fairy tale...but it's so much more.

Ms. Walters knows how to make us drool, pant, and want more.

MAD LOVING an Ellora's Cave deserves every one of the 

five stars I award it.

Now that I am Hatterized, I MUST go now and find some nectar...Hmmm should I go for tu-lips, or morning glories? So many choices.

Ms. Walters...THANK YOU!
