SERIES SPOTLIGHT

The Nymph's Labyrinth

 Book 1 of The Nymph Series

 Publication Date: December 31, 2012
Publisher:
Crimson Romance
Purchase Link: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo
 
Book Description: *(Featured in USA Today)*

 A world shrouded in mystery and intrigue, the Sisterhood of Epione must not be exposed. 

A Shape-shifting nymph, Ariadne, is tasked with keeping the truth of her group’s existence and their ancient mysteries far out of reach of an American archeologist and his troublemaking son.  When forgotten and forbidden passions are awakened, Ariadne is forced to make a choice—fall in line and continue to be overrun and pushed down by the sisterhood, or follow her heart and put everyone’s lives in danger.

Can Ariadne have the man she loves or will the pressure and secrets of the past keep her from her heart’s desire?


My Review:

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Although this book had a little slower start than I had originally expected, I feel that the author did a great time utilizing that start.  I loved the addition of the mythology into this story!  I loved the added suspense of the idea that not only is Beau a forbidden romance, but a romance with any man is forbidden.  I find the curse of the Nymph intriguing, and I couldn’t help but want to know more and more about the history of the island – much like Beau.

Beau is an interesting hero.  He’s got his obvious flaws, but he has a loving heart, even if he’s not always able to show it.  I enjoyed his interactions with his son, who acted just like any other teenager would.  Kaden is a sweet boy, deep, deep down.  On the surface, he may be a brooding and troubled young man, but I couldn’t help but give him a small piece of my heart.  His own little romance with Trina was so endearing, and I couldn’t help but feel this book was more of a double romance.  Not only did I want to root for Beau and Ariadne, but I couldn’t help but root for Trina and Kaden as well.

This book is a great start to the series, and I can’t wait to continue to the next book.  Pick it up!

Montana Mustangs

The Nymph Series Book 2

Danica Winters

Publisher: Crimson Romance

Publication Date: May 6, 2013

 Purchase Link: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo
 
Book Description:

A Nymph.  A woman with the ability to seduce at will, shift to protect, but cursed with the fate to have the man she falls in love with die a tragic death.  As one of the ill-fated nymphs, Aura Montgarten has spent her lifetime drifting from one place to another hiding from love.  Until she meets Dane.

When a body washes up on the shore of a rural Montana lake, police officer Dane Burke is faced with the task of finding the killer—even if it means he will be forced to put his life and heart at risk by working with a drifter.  As the truth of Aura’s Mustang-shifting Nymph ways are revealed, Dane learns exactly the amount of danger he and Aura are in, but can’t force himself to leave a case unsolved when the truth is right outside of his grasp. 

When the killer decides he needs to take another victim—Dane—Aura must choose between their forbidden love and her immortal life…  Can there be life without love, or is death her only choice? 

My Review:

Rating: 5/5 Stars

I’ve decided that I love Nymphs and their stories.  This book was even better than the first one!  I was completely entrapped in Aura and Dane’s story.  I literally could not put this book down.  I was up until the sun was almost up because I had to know the conclusion of this thrilling and sexy mystery.

This book puts together different aspects that I love in books.  I adore police mysteries and I love paranormal romance.  So what’s better than a Paranormal police mystery with romantic intentions?!  Nothing, that’s what!  Aura and Dane are a great couple that work together very well in a stressful situation.  Together, they are able to unwind the mystery behind the death of many nymphs. 

I absolutely loved the tie in with the first novel near the end of the book.  I feel that was a justifiable (although sad) ending to a character that I wasn’t very pleased with from the first novel.  I can’t wait to read another installment of this series to see if more Nymphs will be able to bypass their curse and find the true love that they desire.

Just like the first book, I definitely recommend this one.  Do you like both contemporary and paranormal romance?  Yeah, these books are for you!!
