All the 6 stories were super sexy and hot. If you are a person who loves short sexy reads then this book is definitely for you, in this book there are not only one but six of them.

I really liked the diversity of this book. The stories were set in diverse settings, each setting completely different from the other. Apart from this, stories were also diverse in terms of sexuality, there were not only M/F stories but also F/F.

My favourite story among the 6 was Home for Christmas. It was actually a scene between husband and wife, but the surprise at the end was just very sweet and warmed my heart. My second favourite was Secret Santa.

I din’t like the storyline of The Mysteries of Faith and it has nothing to do with it being F/F, I just don’t agree with The Mysteries of Faith’s storyline. So it is my least favourite story.

If you are looking for love stories in this book, then you will be definitely disappointed. Apart from two stories, which slightly had the hint of blossoming love (which you will only find if you’re hopeless romantic like me) , all others were only pure hot desire. Home for Christmas among the rest 4 was a bit different as it was a scene between husband and wife, plus it had that sweet surprise at the end.

Tanner Moore is at the top of his game in the high stakes world of big technology. As chief technology
officer of Paragon, the largest corporation in the world, he is about to release the greatest convenience
innovation in the history of commerce: drone delivery service to every inch of the globe.
But when an interview with journalist Amy Noral is secretly recorded and published by the clickbait media,
Tanner’s fall from grace is swift and brutal.
Tanner is fired, publicly condemned as a terrorist for comments he never made, and kidnapped by a
mysterious vigilante group who use surveillance data to track and kill their enemies. Tanner must navigate their underground world full of violent zealots and mental manipulation to find his way to
freedom, or see his drone technology used as the most advanced assassination tool ever devised.
Moral Panic explores the collision of the most extreme elements of politics, ideology and technological media manipulation. It navigates through a maze of modern surveillance with a skeptical eye on the data-driven world we live in, to bring an awareness of the possibility of such a story coming true in the real world.

I signed up for this tour, only because of the synopsis. The synopsis reminded me of a book that I had loved reading, which had the story of a man being kidnapped by some group. Even though that was the reason I signed up, this turned out to be a completely different story, but somehow I still loved Moral Panic.

There were many characters in this book, and many different subplots. Even though Tanner’s was the main one, we get to know about some other people’s stories as well. How people were lured into something they can never escape from. How few people twist the knowledge of holy books to justify their sinful actions and how painful experience can turn a good man into a beast. How power can possibly wreck conscience. These were a few things I get to know through pages of this book, and through different characters.

Though I didn’t agree with every action Tanner took, but I still found his character to be quite likeable. Tanner was a really well built character. Different layers of his character was explored through the story, his morals, ethics were tested throughout the book. Other characters which I liked were Sam and Amy.

Another thing I loved about this book was definitely the world it was based on, the more technologically advanced earth. I liked learning about the new technologies that the author wrote about. The way things can be manipulated for someone’s own desire, and how technology can destroy us were certain issues that was talked about quite a lot in the book, and actually made the base of the book. This was something which was quite interesting to me, someone who comes from an technological background.

Moral Panic was quite a page turner given the concept, the mystery involved, and the twists and turns. Though the later part of the first half became a bit slow but it quickly picked up its pace in the second half.

She sat in a corner,
Hands over her knees,
Waiting for her demons to enter,
Waiting for her modesty to be bared,
Ready to beg,
Ready to cry,
Ready to kick her little arms,
Frantically in vain,
But that day no one came,
Her demons lurking in the darkness,
Disappeared into the darkness.
The dreams that had plagued for years,
Dreams that would wake her up in fear,
Were finally no where near.
Finally her horizons were calm and clear,
Pink and blue, just like before the sunrise,
Not like heavy darkness that has always been there.
Because self defense lessons have paid off well,
Now she knows no one can harm her anymore,
No one will every be able to repeat what he did to her little self before.

The Sherlock Effect: Book Review


Raymond Kay Lyon

Genre: Fiction / Mystery & Detective / Amateur Sleuth

Pub date 25 January 2018

246 pages

Thistle Publishing


Christopher Sherlock Webster always blamed his Holmes-obsessed father for burdening him with an embarrassing middle name. He spent his school days desperately trying to live it down.

But after his old man prematurely dies, Christopher finds that he has somehow inherited the very same obsession…

Teaming up with Mo Rennie, a marketing-conscious pal, he starts up an agency called Baskerville’s, which specialises in the application of rigorous Holmesian method.

Here are five bizarre adventures from the files – a sumptuous feast upon which the gastronome of crime may gorge.

— A young beautician is stalked by a haunting stranger through the narrow streets of Cambridge. Yet he possesses love letters from the girl, ostensibly in her handwriting.

How come?

– A science journalist disappears while investigating UFO sightings in Wiltshire. But is the explanation earthly or supernatural?

— When a pornographer receives death threats online he arranges protection 24/7. Will it work?

– A pop diva’s boyfriend is kidnapped twice by animal rights extremists. Should the ransom be paid again?

— Everything in the garden seems rosy when a millionaire widower meets Miss Perfect through a dating agency. But the lady soon starts to behave oddly. Should the wedding plans be shelved?




It has been a long time since I had read a mystery book where the cases were solved primarily based on the power of deduction. So I was very excited to start The Sherlock Effect and I am really happy that this book lived up to my expectations.

According to me this book can be majorly divided into two parts, the part where backstory of Christopher or Sherl as his friend and business partner, Mo calls him, and another part consisting of 5 short stories, which are actually 5 cases which Sherl solves. In the backstory we get to know how Sherl got his middle, what problems he faced because of it, and how he eventually ended up doing this business of solving cases Sherlock style.

This book was just very well written, this book would be a treat to those who love reading books with good language and strong vocabulary. I just loved Sherl’s character and I am just in awe of his deduction power. Not just he gets to know the criminal before everyone else does, plus he also is able to tell how the crime was committed. Apart from Sherl, Mo’s character was quite good. He was a good friend and a great help to Sherl.

Each of the 5 stories had plotlines completely different from each other. And each of the stories were page turners, when you start a story, you are hooked from the start and you just need to know what will happen next, so in anticipation you keep on turning the pages.

This book had 5 stories, as I have already mentioned, all of them were really awesome but among them my favourite is the UFO one, The Warminster Assignment. It was really unpredictable and when everything got solved, I was pretty shocked.

Final words

If you are in a mood to read mystery, then just go and grab this book, in one you will get 5 thrilling stories, what else do you need?



(4 stars out of 5)

Praise for The Sherlock Effect

“I enjoyed ‘The Sherlock Effect’ and thought it original and well-written. An important factor for me in reading anything is the compulsion to go on reading, and I felt that.”


“The most ingenious part of your paperback is, of course, the central idea of a character named after Sherlock Holmes who decides to set up a detective agency on much the same lines as the original genius, and even in a similar room. I think that this inspiration offers interesting possibilities.”


“I love the idea of present day crimes being solved with Holmes’s deductive methods. The storylines are terrific.”


“It is a tremendous read.”

Women of History Book Tour: Book Review

Welcome to Women of History Book Tour’s third week. In this week we are talking about Empress Wu Zetian(The Legendary Women of World History Book 5) and Gwenllian Ferch Gruffydd(The Legendary Women of World History Book 6). For my stop in the Women of History Book Tour’s third week, I am going to review Empress Wu Zetian.

The Legendary Women of World History Book 5
70 pages


The most hated woman in Chinese history!

Travel back in time over one thousand years and meet the first and only female emperor of China. Born Wu Zhao and given the reign title “Zetian” just weeks before her death in 705 CE, Empress Wu was the unwanted daughter of Chancellor Wu Shihuo — too bright, too educated, and too politically focused to make a good wife according to contemporary interpretations of the Analects of Confucius.

Married off at age 14 as a low-ranking concubine to Emperor Taizong, Wu’s intelligence, beauty, and charm won her a place as his secretary and protégé, political experience that would empower her to transform the lives of countless billions.

Explore the life of Empress Wu and discover why the world is a vastly different place because she dared what no woman in China before or since ever dreamed of.


Video trailer:


When I first saw this tour, I got quite excited and signed up immediately. I think I have never read anything much in detail about Chinese history in our history books, as far as I remember. So this opportunity to enlighten myself about a Chinese Empress was something that got me really excited.

Coming to the review. I think I really liked the way this biography of Empress Wu was written. I liked the writing style a lot. It was written as a moving story, in third person narrative, where the story spans over a long number of years. In this book, it was like a few major scenes of Empress’ life was taken out and dramatised in it.

Empress Wu’s character can only be termed as controversial. She has done quite a few deeds in her life that could be considered as morally incorrect, like murder, but still she did a lot of things which was in the betterment of the people of her kingdom, most important was trying to give equal rights to men and women. Empress Wu’s character had quite a lot of shades, which you would get to know about if you read this book, plus you would get to know about how her way of thinking and thoughts changed over the years.

Final Words

I think you should all give this book a shot because Empress Wu Zetian’s story is worth to be known plus this book is very small, only 70 pages, so you will be able to finish this book in one sitting only.

It seems almost foreign,
This life I have come to live,
A year before on this day,
There were a million dreams,
A million thoughts for tomorrow.
My future would be this,
My future would be that,
I had thought so often,
But now when I sit here pondering,
I think most of which I had hoped,
Happened never,
Fulfilled never,
But still I am happy,
But still I have accepted,
Still I have made peace,
With the present,
And fallen love with it.
Even though this life is completely foreign,
To the dreams I once had,
But still it’s loved,
Still it is the life I want to lead,
At least for now…..

Curse Of A Dragon’s Claim: Book Blitz

About the Book:

The flame within a dragon warrior’s heart awakens Arianna’s passion as she begins a journey in which she will discover she’s something more than she ever imagined possible.

The realm of the dragons is a world of magic, danger, and mystery. For centuries they’ve been at war with the vampires, but now the two enemies must work together to save all immortals, and the mortals they co-exist with, from an ancient evil. In order to do so, they need the help of the Forsaken, descendants of immortals who were cast out into the human realm, their memories wiped clean of their true heritage.

Clayne MacDagon is a powerful dragon warrior who is sent on a mission to find one of the Forsaken. Although he’s told that this woman is his fated mate, he can’t believe it could possibly be true. Arianna Mergliano possesses both dragon and vampire blood, and Clayne has an intense hatred for anything even remotely related to vampires, the evil beings who were responsible for his beloved twin’s death.

When Arianna meets Clayne, she’s convinced that the man is insane, or maybe he’s a warlock or even the devil himself, but whichever it is, she wants nothing to do with him.

Clayne knows he can’t fail at his mission. And once he meets Arianna he also knows that what he’s been told is true—she is, ironically, his intended mate.

Convincing her to accept him is only the beginning. He has to protect her from those who might want her dead. Together, they must face the shadows and evil that have long plagued the immortal realms and find a way to survive the coming war.

Read an Excerpt:
“Arianna, please come and sit down so I can fix your hair.” Alba waved Arianna over to the chair in front of a long mirror.
“Sorry, I’m excited. Can’t sit down.” Nevertheless, Arianna obeyed Alba’s direction and sat down.
“We must be ready to leave within an hour. It’s quite a drive to the Allegretti summer home. I’m eager to spend time there. It’s beautiful.” Alba flitted around as she brushed then braided Arianna’s long tresses. “I’ve laid your emerald dress out. If you approve, I’ll pack it. I’ve another for you to travel in.” She pointed to the yellow traveling dress.
Arianna looked toward the bed where her garments were laid out in preparation. “Oh, a lovely choice.”
“Yes, it is. I thought it would make a wonderful impression for this afternoon’s luncheon. In the evening, you can wear your scarlet dress. You’ll be breathtaking.”
“Thank you, Alba. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”
“No thanks is necessary. I’m doing what your mama asked me to do.” Alba smiled. Arianna watched Alba in the mirror as she fussed with her hair, arranging it on top of her head.
“My hair looks wonderful.” Arianna appraised Alba’s handiwork.
“You should think more of things like hairstyles, dresses, and shopping. It’s what wealthy young women are supposed to do. You spend too much time thinking about other people. This event is important. Your papa and Signor Allegretti are depending on it to impress their new associates. Your papa is counting on you to charm them as you always do.” Alba set the carved jewelry box on the dressing table. “Perhaps you should pick some jewels out now so as not to risk taking all with you.”
“Perhaps.” Arianna frowned, her gaze locking on the older woman’s reflection in the mirror. “I feel particularly nervous about this garden party. For some reason I have this uneasiness…no, not really uneasy, I’m not sure what it is, but I’m worried.” Arianna placed her hand over her stomach. It pained her. “I feel something life changing is about to occur.”
“Hush now, Arianna.” Alba patted her arm. “Such talk makes people very nervous, including me. Change can be good.”
“I can’t help it, I feel something momentous will soon happen. I’m not sure if it’s good or bad. I need to be able to speak of things to someone, and the only one I can reveal myself to is you.” Arianna pouted.
“Put these thoughts from your mind and relax. You’re merely nervous about meeting the eligible gentlemen your father invited. I overheard your father say there will be several eligible, well-respected businessmen there. A widower and one who has never been wed are said to be present.”
“Father doesn’t know what an excellent catch is.” Arianna rolled her eyes. “He’s only looking at their wealth.”
“Of course he is, Arianna. It would do you well to understand the way of it. You’d never wed a pauper. You are meant for greater things. Hold still, your hair’s almost done,” Alba instructed.
Arianna handed Alba another pin. The words swirled in her head, a familiar mantra she’d long since gotten tired of.
“There, you’re absolutely exquisite. I want you to look wonderful as soon as you step off the carriage. We’ll refresh you once you’re there. But first impressions, you know.”
“I can’t believe you think wealth’s the only important thing. Not you, Alba. Love’s important. Don’t you think? Isn’t love with physical attraction most important? I know most girls don’t think of this. But I do.”
“I know you think differently in many things, but don’t speak of this to any other. Just remember, love doesn’t pay your bills or buy your lovely silks. Love doesn’t do much, and it may not last.” She motioned for Arianna to stand, then helped her into her dress.
“Papa and Mama loved each other, theirs lasted.”
“Yes, a rarity in itself. If you can tolerate him and he’s wealthy, you’ve the makings of a good husband. Love may come.” Alba stood back, inspected Arianna, and smiled. “You look gorgeous. Let’s get downstairs. The carriage is already parked out front.”
“There will be other females there to charm the gentlemen. They’re much better at being amusing. Sarah’s always so charming and delightful.”
“Yes, but these men are eligible suitors. You’re in need of a husband.”
“I don’t need a husband, at least not yet.”
“Hush, you speak silliness,” Alba scolded as only a beloved servant could do. “You’re a young woman, you need a husband.”
“The other girls need husbands too.”
“Don’t be foolish, you know as well as I, Rafaela’s engaged, Jenna’s being courted by a very appropriate suitor, and Sarah…well, she’s Sarah. You most certainly need a husband. You’re nineteen years old, and getting older every day.”
“You make me sound ancient.” Arianna giggled.
“Someone must take care of you. It won’t be your father forever, he grows older too.”
“Truly, I can take care of myself.”

Clayne relaxed against the ornate couch, a drink in his hand. He appraised the home with a quick eye, the luxury of the human’s dwelling spartan compared to the spacious townhouse he’d recently purchased in the heart of Florence. The invitation to the Allegretti home was most advantageous. It allowed him to continue his search without breaking his cover of a rich merchant who recently relocated from Rome to enjoy the art and culture of Florence, the jewel of the Renaissance.
It amused him to interact with these uncomplicated people. Signor Antonio Mergliano had been insistent that Clayne accept the invitation to the garden party, assuring him an entertaining visit. For some reason, Clayne was compelled to accept, he liked the old man.
Clayne shifted. While fortuitous, the invite was a hindrance. He should be searching for a godforsaken female with the mark of the dragon. No doubt the Forsaken bitch was an ugly, cold-hearted, half-breed bloodsucker. His blood boiled at the very notion of a vampire’s offspring.
There’s no fucking way she’ll be my mate. Mother’s prediction is wrong.
Clayne stood up, stretching his legs. Taking a sip of his drink, it cooled his inner heat. He burned with annoyance at having to do the Goddess Amuliana Synvera’s bidding.
His hatred for anything remotely related to vampires ate at him. They were only good for killing, as far as he was concerned. As loyal as he was to his king, this quest made his temper burn. He’d much rather be back in Ejdeha Dragoni having his teeth pulled than searching for this abomination in human form.
Mother’s wrong. How could the fates be so cruel to me?
He sighed into his drink. It had been years since he’d spent so much time among mortals. Only his trips for his king drew him from his seclusion, and the grief still stung at the loss of his beloved sister.
Perhaps he’d find a simple-minded human female to dally with, relieve his frustrations. Dragon females could be so complicated and greedy of his time. Often, human girls pretended to be virtuous, yet he knew better, seeing through their facade immediately. Allegretti’s daughter was one such female, she smelled of many men. Perhaps she’d be willing and eager to sneak off to a secluded place where he could get lost for a bit between her thighs. The thought brought a smile to his face.
