When two people connect, they can make beautiful music together. But what happens when music is the thing that tears them apart?

Evan James had it all. Drop-dead sexy, brilliantly talented musician, a skyrocketing career and his high school sweetheart by his side. When he’s offered a golden opportunity to go on tour, he never imagined she wouldn’t go with him. Without her, he found his dream meant nothing. Three years later, bereft and alone, Evan stops at an open mic night and spots someone sitting in the audience, the beautiful face of a woman he’d never forget...Maddy, his one true love.

Madison Grey had only ever loved one man. When Evan broke her heart she had no choice but to move on with her life, start a career of her own, and she even finds a new love. Still, thoughts of Evan were never put to rest. And on one fateful night, she unexpectedly hears him pour his heart out into a new song. A song about broken hearts, lost love, and second chances. A song about her.

With the help of their scheming friends, Maddy and Evan are thrown into each other’s lives once more. While learning to love and trust again, there is only one thing left on both of their minds... Is life better with or without you?

Is it possible to find your one true love…twice?

Blind date. When Allie and Ben are thrown together to help their friends out of a bind, they find the unexpected – and unwanted - spark of attraction difficult to ignore. Surrendering to it, they marry and live their happyish-ever-after – until Ben’s death reveals a betrayal that rocks Allie’s world.

The sidelines. Where Jake has hovered for the past fifteen years, business partners with his best friend, in love with his best friend’s wife. He’s shocked by his friend’s duplicity, overcome by the guilt of a deathbed promise. But he’s waited half a lifetime for a chance to love Allie, and it’s time to make his move.

Marriage. Allie might be ready to take the slow slide from friend to lover, but a lifetime is a leap she won’t agree to.

 Kale, the youngest of the elite Light Fae Warriors chosen to protect the Human World from the dark creatures that lurk in the shadows, has had a life that’s been hard fought and racked with betrayal, loss and heartache. Finding comfort in the physical manifestation of pain, Kale has discarded what is expected of Rowan’s Warriors, and now lives for the harder side of human life with his trusty bottle of Patron, hiding from the scars of his past.

Katarina knew the day Darion imprisoned her that the life she’d once longed for was gone. The illusion that a Light Fae could ever love a woman of the Dark was over. Yet, while building a new life among the humans, Katarina’s past is thrust upon her when the Warriors call on her to help in finding an elusive Fae, who is leaving a trail of bodies in its wake. Katarina is then forced to follow the orders of the very Fae who betrayed her.

As secrets and lies unravel around them, Kat and Kale find that their past was never what it seemed, and that discovering what is true will be the most difficult battle of their lives.

“The truth, Kale… The truth would be the best place to start.”
“You and I must have a differing view of the truth in this situation, because in no way would the truth as I know it make you any less guilty.”



In book 2 of The Immortal Heart Series Magen Mcminimy gives us Kale's story. Oh how I have been looking forward to this. We also learn of Katarina, the one Kale lost and loved so much.

Kale was led to believe for the last 15 years that Katarina died. Not only that, but Kale has always believed that she deceived him, set him up..... He is not alone.... Kat thinks the exact same thing.

Kale throws himself into a world of tattoos and his new best friend patron.
Kat has thrown herself into a world of hiding and getting by with her TROW, Jake.

Kale is thrown into a whirlwind of longing for answers when he feels the presence of a Succubus. Could it be Katarina? The love of his life?

Katarina, (Kitten) is what Kale called her. I will refer to her as Kat. She is a strong, fierce and a sexy Succubus. She is not one to cross and she will protect the ones she loves.

Kale and Kat will figure out the truth of what happened on the worst day of their lives. Did Kat really send that Pixie to set him up, to cross in to the Dark's land?

The passion, the fire, the love making that these two share is so seductive and sensuous. They literally get drunk on each others touch and had me loving every magic moment.

I have to mention that if you are a fan of this series, you will be so happy to know Bain and Izzy are around, which made me a very giddy girl. After all, who can really get enough of these FINE~SEXY sexy brothers!!

The deeper Magen takes us with the Fae, the Brownies, the Asrai the better! There are so many more that I was held captive by. I can so appreciate the descriptions of these creatures. I love being taken to a place that I have never been before. Magen takes me away, teaches me new things and leaves me falling in love with the surroundings and these intriguing characters.
I am so in love with this series and can't wait get my hands on Immortal Promise.

I give this book 5 NARLYNUT MOONS!

A Wish: A Lia Fail Short Story (Lia Fail Chronicles, #1.1)A Wish: A Lia Fail Short Story


S.L. Dearing

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

~When You Wish Upon A Star~

~My Review~

A light and heart felt short story about my favorite family. S.L. Dearing lifts our spirits with just the right amount of love and some mending of broken hearts.

Back at Lia Fail Christmas has come. The castle is decorated with the mixture of Christmas and Yule. The beauty of it all is felt all around. I was left with a longing wish to teleport into this magical place.

With a year gone since Lia Fail hosted the gathering, there are many family members still devastated at the loss of loved ones.
Alia Stark wishes upon a falling star. She wishes for great comfort and happiness for her family that has suffered so much.
Alia hopes for their empty hearts to be filled with joy.... will they get the peace they need and deserve this holiday season?

I absolutely loved this short! It was full of MAGIC & SURPRISES!! It filled my own heart with so much happiness and I felt the love. S.L. Dearing brings the beauty of this story to life and gives us our fill of what we have missed so much.

I am thrilled beyond belief to have my fix of Lia Fail again. I am anticipating what will come next. After all, there is something so En-Dearing about each time we are graced with the presence of these characters and their continued story.

As the loyal book lover that I am, I shall await the next treasure that S.L. Dearing will dream up.

 ~NarlyNut's Book Lovers~

Immortal Blood (Immortal Heart)

~ By~

Magen McMinimy


A perfect night on the town turns out to be her worst nightmare. A date with a handsome man is the catalyst for events that she thought only happened in fairy tales. Thrust into a world of danger, Isabelle has no idea what is in store for her as the Light and Dark Fae fight over her future.

Isabelle Moreno is a young woman working her way through life, finding little time for love and adventure. Until she agrees to a date with a mysterious stranger, only to find out the secrets this man holds are something she could have lived her entire life without knowing. The Dark Fae Luck Eater has found something enticing in Isabella’s humanity.

Bain is an arrogant playboy and an Immortal Light Fae Warrior. He and his four brothers fight for the safety of the human race while remaining something of myth. After weeks of tracking the Dark Fae Luck Eater, Bain comes across yet another victim, in Isabelle.

Bain has finally found his match in this feisty human as she fights against him and her ever growing attraction to the Immortal who is bound to protect her.

~My Review~

First of all I have never read a Fae book, but have always wanted to. I am so happy this was my first!! It left the greatest impression upon me and I am now a HUGE Fae fan.

The characters Magen McMinimy has created melts you from first sight. And yes I do mean these sexy Immortal Light Fae Warriors. *Licking lips as I write this*

Bain has been on the tail of a Dark Fae that loves to take the luck away from his victims. Bain and Kale (We will learns Kale's story in the next book) find this Dark Fae about to make his move on Isabelle Moreno. Little does Izzy know this Dark Fae wants more than just her company.

After saving Izzy from this luck eater, Bain will stop at nothing to protect Izzy at all costs.

Bain and Izzy embark upon a love story so touching, so heart felt, so sexy it gives you shivers up and down your spine.
I love when I can feel a book. I was captivated and so compelled with this journey. When you can breathe words in and absorb them into your very soul, you know you have a great read on your hands and it left me personally wanting more of Magen McMinimy's books to read. Oh wait, I already started Kale's story.

I give this book 5 NarlyNut Moons! A MUST READ BOOK LOVERS!!
