I have been looking forward to another Lisa Carlisle book, and here it is!! I loved this book so much! As always, Carlisle’s characters were very well developed. I felt like I knew the main characters well enough to be friends with them and feel their pains and joys. There was enough heat to make this the romance that I was looking for and that always wonderful suspense that I love her for to keep me on my toes and glued to the book. I’m excited to see what happens in the next installment in this series!
Guess what: Book 10 in the Underground Encounters series by Lisa Carlisle is out!!!
Are you ready??!!
After I escape hunters and arrive in good Ol’ Witch City, Salem, Massachusetts, I head to a gothic club to feed. But, the dumb-as-rock gargoyle bouncers kick me out. They’ve confused my scent with another demon’s.
But, I thought I was the last of my kind.
Not good. We can’t both hunt in the same territory, especially with his dangerous cavalier style. I track the incubus, but when I find him, Daron’s irresistibly devilish nature makes me rethink my plan. For just one night…
Will he want to play? Or consider me prey?
One night. One encounter. It won’t change anything, right?
Only it does, and it’s catastrophic. We’ve accidentally bonded.
Which means I crave him. Only him. And all the time. A sucky curse for a succubus.
How can we undo the damage without succumbing to the call–or worse, starving?
SCORCHED is a standalone enemies to lovers romance in Lisa Carlisle’s Underground Encounters series. Misunderstood heroes, forbidden romance, and fated mates await you!
Gargoyle shifter Lucan finds out the hard way that one should never cross a witch! When Lucan has what he believes to be a fling with a witch, she turns vengeful and locks not only him but his two brothers in to their stone forms and turns their memories cloudy. How will the brothers handle this curse?
This is a prequel novella to the Underground Encounters series, which I know that you have have seen me rave about. These characters and the world has already been incredible well developed, so I loved that we got to see how the story of these brothers being under this curse began. We get to see the reason that they were paced under this curse and how they came to be in the state in which we find them in their individual stories. This, like the others, was incredibly well written and moves along at a great pace. It’s, of course, a quick read as it is a novella. If you’re a fan of these stories, or shifters in general, pick this up!
Mattias is one of the three gargoyle brothers that were cursed to stay in stone form and stand guard at Vamps, the underground night club where all of the supernatural beings hang out. His brothers have found their mates and settled down, but Mattias has other plans; to travel and see the world. That is until she walks in…
Rachel had an unfortunate run in with a werewolf, and now feels that she is cursed. She has come to Vamps to meet with the witch that brews her an elixir to control her monthly urges. While at the bar she meets Mattias and decides that she may as well inject some fun in to her lonely existence. It was only supposed to be a fling…
They both have secrets that they are hiding. Neither one is looking for a long term relationship. Will they put all of this aside to see where this goes?
Welcome back to Vamps, everyone!! I’m so happy to be back in the Underground Encounters world! I love this series. These books are always a great escape, and this one was no exception. These two characters (two of my favorite supes- gargoyles and weres?! All I needed was a dragon!) were just as fleshed out and well rounded as the characters that came before them. I have come to expect this in Carlisle’s writing, and I was not disappointed. The world building was mostly complete by this point in the series, but it is still great. I love that we get to see and check in on some main characters from the previous books as secondary characters in this one, and see how their stories are progressing. One of my favorite couples from a previous book had a really fun update! This book gave me a little more of a slow burn feel than the previous books in the series, but it was just what these characters needed. Overall, this is another Carlisle PNR success! This book is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone. (I, personally, recommend them all!)
The fabulous Lisa Carlisle has released the latest book in her Underground Encounters series! I give you Torch!!
A gargoyle in need of a mission…
The curse is finally broken,
Yet, freedom never felt so empty.
No longer confined to his stone form, gargoyle shifter Mattias yearns for a purpose. Feeling increasingly lost, he plans to search for his destiny elsewhere. But, a chance encounter with a wary woman roots him to the spot–for now.
A werewolf in search of a cure Rachel heads into an underground club to pick up an elixir–and runs into Mattias. The attraction is strong, but her affliction has left her too damaged to pursue a relationship.
Mattias and Rachel guard their secrets to protect their hearts. But, the cost is high. Will they be able to break through the darkness?
Or are they doomed to carry the weight of their curses alone?
You all know I love this series, so I’m super excited for this story! I’ll have a review up for you soon. In the mean time, if you’d like to go ahead and grab it to read for yourself, you can find it at the link below!
Gavin, the last single member of his and his brothers’ band, fully intends to stay that way: single, wild, and free. That is until he meets Fiona, the woman that he can’t seem to get off of his mind. She’s a human, though. Surely she, of all creatures, can’t be his mate. Fiona is a reporter that has been drawn to the world of supernaturals since the death of her friend when they were children. When a stranger comes snooping around asking about Gavin and his brothers, Fiona is weary. Although there are rumors of things that happen at some of their concerts, she has no reason to truly believe that Gavin is anything other than human. She has, after all, seem him up close and personal. Gavin can never let the truth about he and his brothers out in to the world, or it would put them all at risk. To what lengths will they all go, in the end, to find out the truths that they seek and protect what they love?
As with the previous books in this series, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were well written, as always, and as fleshed out as possible for a book that is under 200 pages. They were all interesting and were pretty easy to either root for or dislike. As this is the seventh and last book in the series, the world building is complete, however the author did a wonderful job of rounding it out in this installment. I will admit that Gavin’s story was not my favorite of the brothers’ stories in this series, but it was still a great story and a strong way to finish it out. It was fun to return to this world again. Though this is the final book in the series, it can be read as a standalone like the others (although, I would recommend reading them- they’re all a good time!). I’m sad to have to leave the unique gargoyle shifters behind, but I’m sure I’ll return to their Isle from time to time to visit!
Larissa, a Boston police officer, had an unfortunate encounter with some demons while on patrol. Now, she is left with more questions than answers and a friend who is in an incubus-induced coma. During the attack, Larissa was able to fight off the demons and managed to somehow shoot energy at them with her eyes. Her gargoyle lover, Roman, believes that these “gifts” come from her being a witch. Larissa, however, knows nothing about this and wants answers. To make matters worse, she is now having a vision of another supernatural threat. Is this her imagination, or a vision of things to come?
This is the second book in the Stone Sentries Boston series, and it was as fantastic as the first. Roman and Larissa are a great pairing. As always, the character development is fantastic. I have really enjoyed some of the other elements that have been brought in to this series, as it has added nicely to the world building without feeling like we are just being given a supernatural soup (you know what I’m talking about!). These are quick, fun reads, so if you are in the mood for some PNR, I recommend giving them a try. There are definitely still some questions, so I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next installment of Roman and Larissa’s story! Enjoy!!
During the fire at Vamps, Nike was bitten by a vampire. In a fit of bloodlust, she did something that she is unable to forgive herself for. The love of her life, Michel, travelled to Europe in search of a cure for her to no avail. Growing weary of walking between two worlds, she must make a decision that will change the rest of her life. Meanwhile, her best friend Maya is preparing for the rest of her life, as well. She is planning her wedding, and desperately wants Nike to be her maid of honor. Nike, however, is cutting herself off from everyone (Maya included) after her act of bloodlust, and won’t return her calls. At the same time, Maya has decided to find out more about where she comes from and asks her adoptive parents for more information about her birth parents. She is shocked by what she finds when she goes seeking more information.
I was absolutely left with questions after Nike and Maya’s first books, and I am so happy to have this follow up to get some answers!! This new installment, in my opinion, has more twists than previous books and I loved it! Nike and Maya were two of my favorites in this series, so another book with them was right up my alley. Their characters were able to become more complex through this book, and I feel like Carlisle did a wonderful job of giving them even more depth. Where most of the books in this series can be read as standalones, I highly recommend that you read Smolder and Fire first so that you get the background on Nike and Maya. Go, read, enjoy!!!
