#BookBlast: Bundle of Trouble box set by Olivia Hardin #promobooktours

box set - 600
lynlee bundle transGet the first THREE Lynlee Lincoln Series books, PLUS a bonus holiday prequel all in ONE Bundle. Inside you’ll find:

The Trouble with Holidays (A Lynlee Lincoln Series Prequel)
Falling for a human who doesn't believe in magic was the last thing Lynlee Lincoln needed. Beck Hale was a young architect and she was a Neutralizer-in-training--they were drawn together, but worlds apart. When Beck's apartment gets flooded, she invites him to her home for Christmas. Lynlee tries to ignore the pull of the mistletoe, but after all, 'tis the season.

Trolling for Trouble (The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 1)
The Lynlee Lincoln Series One: Magical and undead creatures can get into plenty of sticky situations. Lynlee Lincoln loves her job as a neutralizer, but she needs a break from the supernatural chaos after an ultra-busy Halloween night. Coming home, she's ready to collapse into her bed and forget the day... until she discovers two children scavenging through her refrigerator. One look at the pair and she feels a tug on her heartstrings, then she learns their father is the man she spent years trying to forget. When Beck pleads with her to help save his daughter, Lynlee gets thrust into a heap of trouble.

Tangled Up in Trouble (The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 2)
Lynlee Lincoln isn't just a witch, she's also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can't seem to figure out.

To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.

This Spells Trouble ((The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book 3)
It took some work, but Lynlee Lincoln has finally found balance between her life as a witch and her relationship with Beck Hale. A human boyfriend with two kids wasn’t something she ever planned, but their new arrangement lets her have her cake and eat it, too. Just when she’s getting comfortable, puzzling visions of impending danger at home begin to haunt her dreams.

And if personal issues aren’t troubling enough, Lynlee and the entire organization of Neutralizers go on alert when a phantom creature begins staging magical episodes on live television. If they can’t put a stop to the sensational events, all hell will break loose in the human world. Can Lynlee keep both her new family and the world safe without getting swallowed up in the process?

#BookReview: Transcendent by Olivia Hardin

Transcendent


Title: Transcendent
Series: For Love of Fae, book 2
Author: Olivia Hardin
Publisher:
Description: To the Women on the Hill McKenna is a spy who sails the nightwind to keep close tabs on her people. In truth, McKenna is a double operative, an integral part of an underground rebellion. The Women are secretly bleeding the fae of their powers then banishing them to the Island Anethemusa; but the Dissenters, rebels who suffer under the crushing power of the Women, mean to put an end to their reign.

When McKenna happens upon a talking weasel, she knows she’s found the perfect envoy for her covert mission. Robin Weir’s punishment for a life of betrayal is to be stripped of his magic and exiled as an animal in a foreign realm. He’s used to dirty jobs and subterfuge so becoming McKenna’s errand boy should be a simple task.

But things heats up when Robin finds he has the power to shift into a man again. For McKenna the pet she’s invited into her home now wants nothing less than to possess her heart, body and soul. With the uprising at the ready, lives could be lost if McKenna can’t balance her separate identities of spy, rebel and lover.

Review: The Fae saga continues with this fantastic addition to the For Love of Fae trilogy. In this story, we get to see things from the perspective of Robbie the Weasel. If you don't remember him, he is from the first book in the trilogy. He had been Devan's boyfriend before she discovered that he was using her in the scheme of seeking magical children to values. When she discovered who she really was, she sent Robbie to the Fae dimension thus stepping him of his sorcerer powers. This was mercy seeing as she could have killed him instead. Well now we get to see him turned from the terrible person he was into someone worth loving, specifically by the sentinel fairy McKenna. This story will show you how Robbie transitions from a weasel into a man as well as how the war in the Fae world begins.

Another amazing book by Olivia Hardin. I have been enjoying her books for a while now and look forward to finding out what happens with this war that had been being for for and a half books. Great job Olivia.

All of Hope

To protect her heart, he left her behind.

To protect her life, he’ll leave the life he’s made behind.

Sometimes the safest distance between two hearts is no distance at all…

Kidnapping a baby wasn’t something Hope ever dreamed she would do. But she’s been burned by the legal system before, so when the court places her friend’s child into the custody of an abuser, she takes matters into her own hands. She steals the baby and fakes her death, hoping to make a clean getaway. She planned every detail, except one.

Her high school sweetheart and best friend, who left her years before, sees her at a gas station. Hope thinks all is lost, until he offers to help them.

Brennan had always been the love of Hope’s life, but he never wanted to be. She knows she cannot depend on him for long. However, as each day passes, it becomes painfully obvious that she is in way over her head. She goes with him, intending to keep him always an arm’s length away to protect her heart. But being on the run together sparks the old flames that once burned between Brennan and Hope.

Families, friends, and lovers must band together to save an innocent baby and a daring woman or both of their lives will be destroyed. Together, they’ll do it All for Hope…

About the Author – Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.

#BookReview: Sweet Magic Song by Olivia Hardin

Sweet Magic Song
Title: Sweet Magic Song
Series: The For Love of Fae, book 1
Author: Olivia Hardin
Publisher: Olivia Hardin
Description: Belle Bittner was sold to the highest bidder when she was just a child, sought for the magic lying dormant in her blood. She grew up as the adopted daughter of a wealthy vampire couple, and serving the child-trafficking Org seemed her only option in life. But Belle has other plans, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her escape, even if it means betraying those who try to help her.

Desperate to stay free of an evil vampire who means to possess her no matter what, Belle decides she can use the protection of the flirtatious faery named Roon. The two of them flee to the faery realm where Rooney believes he can better protect her. What he doesn’t know is that taking the beautiful siren through the golden door will set off a cataclysm of events that will threaten the fabric of both the human and the faery worlds.

Separating myth from fact to decipher the truth about her powers could mean the destruction of the new life Belle’s trying so hard to build.

Review: The For Love of Fae trilogy is really a continuation of the Bend-Bite-Shift trilogy. Anyone that has read the first trilogy knows about Rooney, the fairy that has been in love with and best friend to Devan, who is the focus of Witch Way Bends. Also called Roon, he has made an appearance throughout and driven women crazy with wanting to know more about him. We have also wanted to know what would become of his poor heart since Devan' s heart belongs Kent. Well Sweet Magic Song is all about Roon.

At the end of Shifty Business, Roon meets Belle, a victim of the Org's child trafficking ring. This book starts where that one left off. Roon find himself drawn to Belle. When she tries to run away from the very people that intend to help her, Roon follows her. She had the kids in tow that Roon can't leave Belle alone to take care of. He soon discovered that his curiosity is much more and that Belle feels the same way about him. Along the path of discovering their feelings, they uncover something dangerous brewing in the fairy realm. It is up to Roon, Belle, and Devan' s team to calm the Women which seems to be setting something deeper in motion.

I loved this book, but I am biased. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book that Olivia has written. I am very curious who will be the focus of the next book in this trilogy or if Roon will be the main character in the entire trilogy. The Bend-Bite-Shift trilogy had a different main character for each book. I can't wait to find out what will happen next.

Trolling for Trouble 1


Tangled Up in Trouble 2
Title: Tangled Up in Trouble
Series: MUAC Series, Book two
Author: Olivia Hardin
Publisher: Olivia Hardin
Description: Lynlee Lincoln isn’t just a witch, she’s also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can’t seem to figure out.

To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.

Review: Lynlee is a neutralizer. Think of her as someone like J from Men in Black, only no aliens. She a witch and her job is to keep the other MAUCs (Magical and Undead Creatures) from exposing themselves to the world. It's inevitable that some humans will find out that there are such things as witches, vampires, goblins, nymphs, etc. but most of the time they will convince themselves that they were just seeing things. In those situations where there is no denying what they saw, Lynlee steps in to clean up the mess. She has several MAUCs she is responsible for cleaning up after, including the daughter of the human man she is dating. That's right, she's dating a human. He knows about her world from having dated her in the past, but now he is back in her life after Lynlee saved his nymph daughter's life. He had no idea she was a nymph which is actually a big part of the reason his daughter was so deathly sick.

Now Lynlee is trying to track down a dark witch while trying to maintain her relationship with Beck. She's also learning a little bit about what it is like to try to be a parent and a mother. Her instincts are there telling her what to do, but they aren't always right on track. It might be because she has so much other stuff to think about with trying to keep the dark witch from hurting one of her charges. Things get really tricky when her personal life becomes a part of the case. Will she find the dark witch before someone gets hurt or killed? Will she give up on her relationship because she feels that being with a human is doomed to fail?

Another great story by Olivia Hardin. I think the characters are very believable and the plot keeps you guessing what will happen next. The ending was very surprising, but it's not a cliffhanger. It was very enjoyable.

Trolling for Trouble
Title: Trolling for Trouble
Series: MAUCs Series, Book 1
Author: Olivia Hardin
Publisher: Olivia Hardin
Description: A NOVELETTE- MAUCs Series One: Magical and undead creatures can get into plenty of sticky situations. Lynlee Lincoln loves her job as a neutralizer, but she needs a break from the supernatural chaos after an ultra-busy Halloween night. Coming home, she's ready to collapse into her bed and forget the day... until she discovers two children scavenging through her refrigerator. One look at the pair and she feels a tug on her heartstrings, then she learns their father is the man she spent years trying to forget. When Beck pleads with her to help save his daughter, Lynlee gets thrust into a heap of trouble.

Review: This is a very quick read being that it is a free Novelette. I have read all of Olivia Hardin's Bend-Bite-Shift trilogy and her romance novel All For Hope. I enjoyed every single book so much that I decided it was time to read her MAUCs series. MAUCs are Magical And Undead Creatures. In this world some humans are aware that there's more than just themselves on the earth, but mostly MAUCs try to keep their existence hidden. Sometimes things happen that cause them to be discovered and someone like Lynlee has to step in to hide them again. It's kind of like Men In Black only with paranormal creatures instead of aliens. In this short story, Lynlee is faced with someone from her past, a human named Beck has come seeking her help with healing his daughter. Beck learned that Lynlee was a witch when they dated many years ago and decided that he couldn't handle being a part of her life. Now he has literally shown up in her house asking for her help with his magical daughter, only he didn't even know what his daughter really was. In the process of helping him save her, Lynlee discovers that her old feelings have only been buried deep, now uncovered with his very presence.

It's a wonderful story with a wonderful ending. I love how Lynlee interacts with the other characters. You will probably want to have Tangled in Trouble ready to be read as soon as you finish because while the story is summed up nicely, you will want to know more about what happens to Lynlee by the time you are finished with this one.
