I have always loved Claire Marta’s Ceasefire’s series. From Ashes to Embers is yet another one to add to my collection.


She’s forbidden.

Temptation personified in a curvy package of sugar and sin.

My one job is to obey the rules.

Keep my **** in my pants and forget the new nanny.

Be a good little soldier as the Devil himself raised me to be.

Problem is I can’t.

I care more than I want to admit.

I’m not supposed to have a conscience. Blood stains my hands and taints my soul.

There’s no escaping the chains that bind us, when duty threatens to destroy us both.

Raziel is the Devil’s right hand man. Someone who sold his soul to him when he was young to save his mother’s soul, and send it to Heaven. He was trained as a fighter, and not to have feelings for others.

Jane is a fairy who takes the job as a nanny to watch the Devil’s and Mavi’s baby. She instantly attracts Raziel, who is conflicted because of his boss. The Devil himself told Raziel that she is to be off limits. Well, the Devil had other plans.

Jane recollects where she came from, and try to solve so many mysteries that were holes in her past. Raziel, comes to terms that he loves Jane, and he can’t fight it.

From Ashes to Embers is book 3 in the Ceasefire series. You will have to read the first two or else you will be completely lost. Book 1 is The Devil’s Plaything and Book 2 is The Devil You Know which both posts can be seen here.

I give From Ashes to Embers 5 stars. The sex, the continuing story, the violence, the feelings . . . Everything. If you like erotica with some drama and violence, this is the book for you!!!

Book Review: The Other Woman by Sandie Jones

*Disclaimer: I received this book as an ARC for an honest review

What can I say? I have watched movies and read books about the obsessive other woman, but this one takes the cake.


He loves you.

Adam adores Emily. Emily thinks Adam’s perfect, the man she thought she’d never meet.

But she loves you not.

Lurking in the shadows is a rival, a woman who shares a deep bond with the man Emily loves.

And she’ll stop at nothing.

Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother, Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.

Wow! I mean . . . WOW!!! Just when I think I have picked a favorite book, this one, of course, tops them.

So many twists and turns. Anger and tears. Seriously. At first, I thought the couple was adorable. Then I thought that Emily was a little much. Then I would be mad at Adam for how he would react. Then I would be upset at Pammie about what she is doing, and then BAM . . . An ending I never saw coming.

If you want suspense, I recommend that you pick up the book. I could not put it down.

I give the book 5/5 for the story, and how well it was written. I am still just in shock.
