Baby, It’s Alien Outside by Fiona Roarke (Alienn, Arkansas #3.7):

2 stars – it was ok

While this was a cute conclusion to the Hart family’s story, Vilma finally finding her lost love, I did have a big issue with it. My issue with this story is the constant badger to her children for grandkids. As a woman who doesn’t want kids, yet hears about how I should by everyone, this is something that irritates me when I find it in romances. I deal enough with this in real life. Another issue was the spell that Vilma and Max do. If you want to know the specifics of that you can read the spoiler on my Goodreads review.

The Falcon’s Christmas Surprise by Candace Colt

1.5 stars - It wasn't great
1.5 stars – It wasn’t great

This story is the continuation of Solange and Clark’s relationship from The Falcon’s Second Chance. I have not read that book, so events in this story were at first confusing because this picks up a few months after that book. This is going to have a lot of spoilers so please refer to my Goodreads review where those spoilers are hidden if you want to read them.  

The only thing I really enjoyed about this story was the two sisters who help Solange out. They were dog shifters and they seem like fascinating women. I would totally read a book with them. 

Rockin Around the Cauldron by Larissa Emerald:

3 stars - I liked it

Kamdyn and Cedric are preparing for their upcoming wedding and honeymoon. Unfortunately Kamdyn is struggling to control her new surge in magic and it’s causing some issues before their big day. 

I really loved how supportive Cedric was in this story. He knew something was wrong with Kamdyn and did whatever he could to help her overcome it. He seeks help with other witches and doesn’t let Kamdyn push him away when she gets angry about it. I loved a hero, or heroine, who is supportive of their partners. Overall, this was a cute little story about two people dealing with wedding stress and magical malfunctions. 

Touched by His Christmas Magic by Kira Nyte: 

4 stars – It was really good

This was adorable! Sophia is just now experiencing a normal vampire life.She has spent most of her life unable to tolerate artificial light or sunlight so has lived in a world of darkness. Jackson was an adorably awkward wizard who just wants to be with Sophia. These two were just so cute together. I loved how protective her brother was but also helpful with pushing Jackson towards Sophia. The present Jackson gives Sophia was perfect and thoughtful. 

Basically, these two were adorable and I wish their story had been longer because I could have read a whole book with these two.
