My legacy is to hate him, but I can’t.

This woman appears and tells me I’m an elf and she’s my grandmother. Not quite what I expected on a Thursday evening after another day at the office.

Soon, I’m thrown in a world of duty, magic, and monsters.

And a family feud as old as time itself.

I would have run. I would have gone back to my old life. Or started a new one.

But when the man I’m supposed to hate turns out to be my elven soul mate the only thing I can do is fight for my right to love him.

No matter what kind of monster gets in the way.

Elven Duty is part of the multi-author Magic Emporium Series. Each book stands alone, but each one features an appearance by Marden’s Magic Emporium, a shop that can appear anywhere, but only once and only when someone’s in dire need. This book contains a forbidden love, a ton of creatures, a secret “baby”, and a guaranteed HEA

Available at Amazon.

If Romeo and Juliet were paranormal monster hunters….

Rhys Lawless takes the backdrop of Shakespeare and then puts it into a paranormal blender. The result is Jude Hayes and Roman Meyers. Well, Jude isn’t really a Hayes. And finding out who his family is makes all the difference.

There is a lot to like in this book. Jude is very endearing. He is a programmer who lives his life like he writes his code – carefully. Roman is the one person in his family that is not a complete pompous ass. Their relationship is definitely one of the strengths of this story.

There were threads that felt unfinished or unpolished to me. As I finished the book, and found out that this was the start of a series, it made more sense. I still wish it was a more complete stand alone book. I reduced its overall rating for that reason. This is a good premise and a fun read.
