Lora Blackgoat, smuggler and mercenary, has been lying low after a job gone bad made her a laughing stock in the industry. When a childhood friend turns to her for help, Lora leaps to restore her reputation and starts hunting a killer who is stalking the gas-lit streets.
She never expects that her path will lead her to the Order of Guides, a sadistic militant religious organisation - or to Roman, a deadly and dangerously attractive half-angel warrior who also hunts the killer.
When Lora discovers that the killer has broken fundamental laws of magic to enter the city, she also uncovers a conspiracy that leads back into her own dark past.
I am going to try for really short, I know I say that sometimes, but, ok really short:
1.) Reasons you chose this book
The cover looks kick-ass, and it was free.
2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book
It was a pretty cool world, even if the world was never really explained. So I guess some sort of other dimension to our world and there were humans and otherkin...yes I would have liked to know more about the world. Anyway, cool heroine, a hunt for a killer and a good premise.
But maybe it was because I read it over a month, I was never really hooked. Still good.
3.) Reasons you are recommending this book
If you like UF in another world.
I'd like a head still cool

Chronicles from the Applecross #1
Urban fantasy with other genres in there
When a car accident takes Leah Sunderland's life, she finds herself in dire need of divine assistance. Her fairy godmother comes to the rescue, but her help comes with conditions. As a fairy godmother, the only assistance she can offer deals with (you guessed it) fairy tales. To win a second chance at life, Leah must play out the tale of The Little Mermaid.
Armed with a mermaid tail and nothing else (not even a voice!), she has one month to make a nobleman fall in love with her, or else she'll die permanently. But the nobleman she must seduce is a hard, fierce warlord who thinks she's a spy and the mistress of his enemy.
Can she win him over before the thirty days are up? Or is she in danger of losing her heart as well as her life?
A fun sexy novella,
Leah, goes from our time to Medieval times, and becomes half mermaid thanks to a spell. Poor girl can't speak either when out of water. So that causes some issues.
Royce, honestly creepy at times, sure he is always nice, but the things he says. But then times, the situation, I got it. But...ok anyway I got over it and wanted them together.
A fast romance as if she does not get him to love her she dies. Throw in a an evil lord who wants the castle, the spell that makes her crave the water and some sexy times and this is what you get.
It works for me

Once Upon a Time-Travel #3
City slicker Ami Jordan was just dumped by her back-stabbing boyfriend, has no job prospects, and can't find a decent cup of coffee in the entire state of Vermont. The last thing she needs is a sexy, bearded lumberjack complicating her life. Even if he’s smart, talented, and has the hottest ass she’s ever seen.
Tree house builder, environmental champion, and Bulldog owner Marcus Anderson has no patience for flatlanders with an attitude. But when landscape designer Ami Jordan shows up at his log cabin, he suddenly develops a hankering for a high-maintenance city gal. Now his house looks like a jungle, his recycling is in disarray, and his libido's on fire.
He's a lumberjack in love.
Ok I might just understand the author's beard obsession now ;) She sure makes Marcus sound so hot *wipes away some drool*
Ami and Marcus are both great characters. There is lust, there is playing and I believe that they fall for each other.
A bit of hot monkey sex on the porch.
A bit of humour.
And you have a "lumberjack" and a city slicker falling for each other, but then having to have to decide also what they want. So insert a tiny bit of drama and then this is the cake you get ;)
Oh and the new cover is soooooo much better. I have to show it to you guys.
Yeah no, but the other one is good
