    This Series Just Keeps Getting Better

    Did someone say, "The Big Bad Wolf?" Lordy, Nikolai had me the second he prowled onto the scene. I loved THE BLACK LILY, but Nik took that love and ratcheted it up about 1,000 degrees. All alpha and deliciously sexy, I found myself flipping the pages and ignoring reality until the very end. (Which came all too quickly.) And Sienna--she's the type of heroine I love to read. Strong, yet comfortable in her femininity. And while their overall journey, championing The Black Lilly's agenda, was rich and full of suspense, one of my favorite parts of the book was the slow unveiling of her history and how she came to live in the forest. (Extra double bonus points for the wolves. Fingers crossed they get a series of their own.) But the best part was the romance. One thing I can always count on from Juliette are smoldering interludes ripe with amazing chemistry and emotion, and THE RED LILY was no exception. Seriously, the ante in this series has been raised exponentially. So much so I'm practically begging for the next installment--THE WHITE LILY.

    ***5 ‘Show Me Life’ Stars***

    ***5 ‘Show Me Life’ Stars*** I knew I’d be in for one h*ll of a ride when I started The Red Lily. I expected my heart to start racing with anticipation over what would happen next, but I didn’t expect to get all teary eyed...not once, but TWICE (which wasn’t cool since my makeup was all nice and pretty) but that’s what happened. Ms. Cross pulled out all the stops and then some with this book. It’s got it all: Hot, smexy alpha male vamps, evil batshit crazy vamps, strong willed women and a slew of secondary characters that you want to know more about even if you’ve only met them for a hot second (even the evil ones) and it’s all set in a world that is so vibrant that it’s easy to get lost in for a few hours and never want to leave. I loved Nikolai and Sienna. Nikolai is all kinds of smexy, charismatic alpha male who can be all kinds of beastly one second and yet unconsciously kind and compassionate the next. He may have turned ‘traitor’, but that was because his strong sense of honor wouldn’t allow him to do any less. Sienna is a strong and independant woman, which is proven by where she lives and the circumstances that got her there as well as her decision to join The Black Lily, but she also has a kind and compassionate heart. What I found amusing about Sienna was how unaware she could be about her effect on people and the little, or sometimes big things, that made her stand out. I loved how their journey to their HEA unfolded..well most of it. While the sexual tension between them was high, the angst was minimal. Both had their misgivings about being together, but it was more about how they perceived themselves and what they believed the future held for them, not how they viewed each other. They were fun, flirty and the mutual respect they had for the other made it easy to see that they could have a future together. While most of the drama going on was due to their mission, they had their bumps in the road. One had me giving the author the evil eye, but I loved how it all worked out in the end. I’m really enjoying how the whole working at overthrowing the evil crazy b*tch queen story arc is unfolding and the pacing of it all as well as getting glimpses of who may or may not be getting a book of their own in the future. Friedrich I already liked after meeting him in The Black Lily, but now I want to dig around in his head a little more. I loved the hart wolves and I hope we see more of them as the series progresses. But the two that stand out the most are Riker and Dane. I had a bit of a gut reaction to Riker and I’m happy what I thought didn’t happen, and Dane, well, you’ll have to meet him to find out. So, bring on the next book! ~ Copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed ~

    Loved it! Red Riding Hood with a vampire twist!

    Loved it! This is the sixth book that I have read by Juliette Cross, so I knew that The Red Lily would be another riveting, delicious and imaginative read that would have my heart pounding and my pulse racing. And I was right. Based very loosely on Little Red Riding Hood, it is set in a fantasy world where vampires rule and humans live in fear. Ms Cross is an extremely talented writer and knows how to bring her characters to life. Sienna and Nikolai were both appealing characters, and I became completely invested in their adventure. The plot was perfectly paced and the romance was suspenseful, hot and sweet. This is the second book in the Vampire Blood series though it can be read as a standalone. However, it is set in the same world as The Red Lily and some the secondary characters are also in the first book. So escape into the supernatural world of The Red Lily. It is an irresistible blend of steamy romance and adrenaline filled action that will pull you in and have you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

    Oh Nikolai!

    Lady Sienna’s grandmother had warned her against falling for a vampire, yet when Sienna had met Nikolai, she couldn’t help being attracted to him. She had first met him when her friend Arabelle – the Black Lily – had needed help, and now the renegade Royal Legionnaire will help her recruiting for the army needed to vanquish the evil Morgrid, queen of the vampires. Sienna has lived for five years in the Selvane Forest, the enchanted forest where no one dares venture, where the hart stone is rumoured to transform any creature. Wolves, who are Sienna’s allies, also inhabit the forest. Sienna is not supposed to stay out of the forest for long, but times have changed, but the irresistible vampire Nikolai will protect her, but will she be able to protect her heart? I was so excited that Nikolai’s story would be the second book in the Vampire Blood series, he is such a charismatic and enigmatic character, and he proved to be even better than I would have wished; what a magnificent character! Nikolai and Sienna, along with the rebels from the Black Lily must stop the scourge that is the blood madness, the sanguine furorem – what a great term! Ms. Cross’ writing is a beautiful as ever, and even more evocative if possible, and the characters just as enticing. However, it takes a long time for anything to happen, whether regarding the rebellion or for Sienna and Nikolai to succumb to their sizzling attraction. After a bit of sensual plodding – and I must admit I would have preferred more story and a tad less mooning - the story explodes and plot twist succeeds plot twist, and what an ending! Ms. Cross’s worldbuilding is fabulous, and there is so much more to look forward to, the mind boggles! “If rage had a name, it was Nikolai.” What a line, and what extraordinary prelude to amazing action sequences! And the sex scenes are brilliant, tender and so very sensual. The love story is heartwrenching, convincing, and well, Nikolai is just the hero I hoped he would be, and then some! And I will repeat myself, but the writing is simply dazzling! Bring on book three of this innovative series! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Vampires, witches and wolves oh my!

    Nikolai and Sienna have redefined the concepts of soulmates and whirlwind romances. With barely any interaction they still haunt each other's dreams.The Queen's plans for The Black Lily and their supporters may be nefarious and dangerous, but Nikolai is the most dangerous creature that Sienna has ever been around because he has absolute power over her heart and the same goes for Nikolai. No one else will ever do because Nikolai will never be the same without Sienna. Oooh and that awesome twist towards the end. Man, I can't wait to see what these two are going to get up to in future books. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.
