Savage Heart (Savage Island #1)Savage Heart by Cree Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This ties in with the stories of Maddox and Crystal. This is Savage story and we get to see little more of the shifter that like to stay in the background and why. We are taking on a journey on a island that is hiding some hidden treasure. Cant wait to see what comes next on Savage Island when others come there to train maybe some hidden will find their mates. Highly recommend this book

Warrior of the World

Warrior of the World
Chronicles of Dasnaria #3
by Jeffe Kennedy
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Pub Date: 1/8/19
Just beyond the reach of the Twelve Kingdoms, avarice, violence, strategy, and revenge clash around a survivor who could upset the balance of power all across the map. . .
Once Ivariel thought elephants were fairy tales to amuse children. But her ice-encased childhood in Dasnaria’s imperial seraglio was lacking in freedom and justice. With a new name and an assumed identity as a warrior priestess of Danu, the woman once called Princess Jenna is now a fraud and a fugitive. But as she learns the ways of the beasts and hones new uses for her dancer’s strength, she moves one day further from the memory of her brutal husband. Safe in hot, healing Nyambura, Ivariel holds a good man at arm’s length and trains for the day she’ll be hunted again.
She knows it’s coming. She’s not truly safe, not when her mind clouds with killing rage at unpredictable moments. Not when patient Ochieng’s dreams of a family frighten her to her bones. But it still comes as a shock to Ivariel when long-peaceful Nyambura comes under attack. Until her new people look to their warrior priestess and her elephants to lead them . . .
Exile of the Seas
Chronicles of Dasnaria #2
Around the shifting borders of the Twelve Kingdoms, trade and conflict, danger and adventure put every traveler on guard . . . but some have everything to lose.
ESCAPED
Once she was known as Jenna, Imperial Princess of Dasnaria, schooled in graceful dance and comely submission. Until the man her parents married her off to almost killed her with his brutality.
Now, all she knows is that the ship she’s boarded is bound away from her vicious homeland. The warrior woman aboard says Jenna’s skill in dancing might translate into a more lethal ability. Danu’s fighter priestesses will take her in, disguise her as one of their own—and allow her to keep her silence.
But it’s only a matter of time until Jenna’s monster of a husband hunts her down. Her best chance to stay hidden is to hire out as bodyguard to a caravan traveling to a far-off land, home to beasts and people so unfamiliar they seem like part of a fairy tale. But her supposed prowess in combat is a fraud. And sooner or later, Jenna’s flight will end in battle—or betrayal . . .
Prisoner of the Crown
Chronicles of Dasnaria #1
She was raised to be beautiful, nothing more. And then the rules changed . . .
In icy Dasnaria, rival realm to the Twelve Kingdoms, a woman’s role is to give pleasure, produce heirs, and question nothing. But a plot to overthrow the emperor depends on the fate of his eldest daughter. And the treachery at its heart will change more than one carefully limited life . . .
The Gilded Cage
Princess Jenna has been raised in supreme luxury—and ignorance. Within the sweet-scented, golden confines of the palace seraglio, she’s never seen the sun, or a man, or even learned her numbers. But she’s been schooled enough in the paths to a woman’s power. When her betrothal is announced, she’s ready to begin the machinations that her mother promises will take Jenna from ornament to queen.
But the man named as Jenna’s husband is no innocent to be cozened or prince to charm. He’s a monster in human form, and the horrors of life under his thumb are clear within moments of her wedding vows. If Jenna is to live, she must somehow break free—and for one born to a soft prison, the way to cold, hard freedom will be a dangerous path indeed…

One year later Forever Careless, my debut novel, was self- published and was an Amazon Best Seller. I am a paralegal from East Texas. During my free time, I write, read, or binge watch shows. Sometimes I go to friends’ houses to listen to their drama for good book material.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: center;">I've always had a crazy imagination and I loved writing. So, I started writing Forever Careless to see if I had it in me. It was too much fluff for me, however my friends loved it. So, I published it. I wrote another, this time I pushed to boundaries of “fluff.”</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: center;">One day, while in a very bad mood, I thought of a story without a happy ending; one with real problems and real people. A story that was very close to my heart. It nagged me constantly. Months later, I sat down and started Hazed. At first, he was going to be a part of the Forever Series. Just come in and wreck their lives. Instead, I went another route.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: center;">Only weeks later, Hazed was finished. I was obsessed with it. It took me over a year to finish my first novel and weeks to finish this one. I knew what that meant. I liked to write about bad people who do bad things. I like to get inside their minds and feel their crazy. So, if you're looking for hearts and flowers, you won't find them here. My stories are real and they aren't always pretty. If you do stick around, I will be eternally grateful. Happy reading!</p> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-23035" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Author-Interview-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pyuQH5gdo9vfvRJ7_CL6ykCc3AsmxSbW5BDqjw0AtVY/edi t?usp=sharing" target="_blank" rel="noopener">AUTHOR INTERVIEW WITH BRITTANY BUTLER</a></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-25078" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Giveaway-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/book-specials/giveaways/&quot; target="_blank" rel="noopener">LIVE JANUARY 6TH &amp; 7TH CLICK HERE FOR GIVEAWAY</a></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-16719" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Social-Media-Links-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;">~ <a href="https://www.facebook.com/BrittanyButlerBooks/&quot; target="_blank" rel="noopener">FACEBOOK</a> ~ <a href="https://www.instagram.com/brittanyntarkington/&quot; target="_blank" rel="noopener">INSTAGRAM</a> ~</h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-3921" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/IBBBProfile3Promotions-300×300.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="300" /></h4> <h4 style="text-align: center;"><strong><a href="http://www.itsybitsybookbits.com/">WEBSITE</a&gt; ~ <a href="https://www.facebook.com/itsybitsybookbits">FACEBOOK</a&gt; ~ <a href="https://www.twitter.com/itsybitsybkbits">TWITTER</a&gt; ~ <a href="https://www.pinterest.com/itsybitsybkbits/">PINTEREST</a&gt; ~ <a href="https://www.youtube.com/c/ItsyBitsyBookBits">YOUTUBE</a&gt; ~ <a href="https://www.instagram.com/itsybitsybookbits/">INSTAGRAM</a>~ <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/itsybitsybookbitsllc">FACEBOOK GROUP</a></strong></h4>

Galactic Mandate: A Radical Cause
by M.R. Richardson
Genre: SciFi, Space Opera
The galaxy is in turmoil. The two main powers, the Acolyte Empire and the Clone Defense Force, vie for supremacy.
Caught in between are the weaker Galactic Planetary League and independent planets, pawns to be used and discarded in the greater game. The peace of the galaxy rests on a powder keg…and the fuse is about to be lit.
As the son of the Acolyte Emperor God-Reign, Devante lives a life of power and luxury that few can fathom.
Since childhood, he has devoted his life to one thing: freeing the clone slaves of the CDF and banning the practice of cloning throughout the galaxy. But he is about to uncover a secret that goes to the heart of the empire he loves and serves, one that will set him on a course of vengeance and destruction that will shake the galaxy to its core.
Against this backdrop of war, treachery, and intrigue, Galactic Mandate tells an epic saga of god-emperors and assassins, spies and queens, princesses and slaves.
The lives of all will be irrevocably changed as Devante embraces his destiny—for when empires collide, no one is safe, and there is no place in the galaxy to hide.
**Only 99 cents!!**
M.R. Richardson, with a clear mastery of world-building, creates compelling wild, cutthroat novels. Balancing vivid action, with personal reflection, existential dilemmas, and richly detailed worlds, his space operas are far more complex than first meets the eye. Combining war, politics, and intrigue, his first novel Galactic Mandate: A Radical Cause is an epic debut.
