Happy, happy Friday!
The theme of the post is the Seven Deadly Sins. This one has been on my list for awhile, I am so glad to finally complete it! I’ve ended up downloading quite a few of the books, I’m looking forward to reading them!
On a completely unrelated note: Have any of you started the Dying Gods series? The first book is [amazon link=”B09TN5CL12″ title=”Drown the Sea” /] .It checks so many boxes I didn’t even know I had! I studied Ancient Greek history in undergrad, so I know a little eety bit about the Minoans. The history that is instilled in these books is just incredible. Epic fantasy. I highly recommend if that is your jam. I just finished the second book and just feel so satisfied by the literature and quality.
So what are we here for? Right, Seven Deadly Sins. I guess reading this book got me in the mood for some mythology/religion/otherness. I’m ready to dive into this theme!
I hope you are all able to find something of interest.

From Book 1:
Nobody warned me these men are hot as sin.
It makes sense, I guess. They are the Seven Sins, after all.
And what’s a fallen angel doing hanging out with guys like this, you ask? Well… that’s a long story that starts with me breaking a teeny-tiny rule and ends with me getting kicked out of Heaven.
But now I’ve got a chance to go back! There’s just one little catch: I’ll only be allowed to return to Heaven if I can bring the Seven Sins with me.
Yup. You heard that right. I have to redeem them. All of them.
It shouldn’t be so hard. I’ve got a plan of action all set.
Step 1: Stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.
Step 2: Recruit their help to close up the strange demonic portal that just opened in Manhattan.
Step 3: No, seriously, stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.
Uh oh. This might not be as easy as I thought…
Note: Dark Kings is the first book in the Feathers and Fate series, a reverse harem paranormal romance featuring a feisty fallen angel and seven delicious, devilish men.
Thoughts from Paige
The sample wasn't enough, I had to download the book, I needed more. Seems well written, and I usually like books by Sadie Moss. Seven men in the harem, yes, please!
Send help… I’m going to need it.
I was normal… until I wasn’t. Dying does that to people, I guess.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. My name is Gabrielle, and I’m an omega. My life took an unexpected turn the moment I was dragged into an alley and murdered. When I woke up, I fully embodied lust and jumped three sexy-as-sin strangers—who just so happened to be Hell’s strongest demons.
Now the four of us are bonded for life. And as it turns out, this group of three is actually a group of six. Oh and there’s this huge plot to overthrow the current leader of Hell, and somehow I’ve found myself smack dab in the middle of it.
If I thought my life before was a challenge, it’s got nothing on this shit.
Dragged Under is a somewhat dark PNR omegaverse featuring one saucy omega and six demanding alphas.

This has been on my TBR pile, even though it comes with a glossary upfront. If you've frequented this blog, you'll know it's one of my biggest pet peeves. I don't know why shrug. Moving right along...this is also an omegaverse. I know several of you are looking for more of those; this could be a two-for-one situation.
Total aside, I LOVE the authors disclaimer/preface whatever at the beginning of the book. Made me chuckle.
Zodiac Academy meets Kingdom of the WickedThe Seven Deadly Sins want to come out to play...
Salem and Skye are two freshman roommates at Kildale Academy, when a fire destroys their dorm room. Left with no other options, they are forced to move into the only rooms available- which just happens to be at the fraternity known as Hell House.
Little do they know their new housemates have been possessed by the Seven Deadly Sins, and they're in the mood for something downright sinful.
Join Salem and Skye at Hell House for a bit of chaos, a bunch of steamy scenes, and a touch of danger.

Why Choose Romance
Thoughts from Paige
There are so many positive reviews for this book! Warning though, the reviews indicate a cliffhanger. There isn't a series page, but book two is out for preorder. Queens of Hell House. I've not read a RH with two female main characters. Does that mean there will be two harems, or will they be sharing each other and a harem? Anyone know?
THE COMPLETE HELL'S REDEMPTION SERIES including bonus Novella! a #Whychoose romance with the devil, swearing, M/M, inappropriate gifts and orgies in Hell.
THE REDEEMABLE : BOOK ONE
Arcadia’s dying. But that’s okay.
She was prepared to spend her last years alone, working boring temp jobs and eating cereal straight out of the box, until the inevitable moment that her heart finally gave out. That way, she wouldn’t cause anyone any unnecessary grief, and that was noble, right?
But a chance meeting on the subway changes everything. Now she's living with not one guy, but seven intriguing men who are all as sexy as, well… sin. But she'll soon discover that there is more to the guys than their attractive appearance and their disconcerting willingness to take care of a complete stranger.
They are the embodiment of a Seven Deadly Sins, pawns in an ancient bet, and apparently so was Arcadia, who was meant to be some kind of savior.
They chose the wrong girl. Death was knocking at her door, and so was the Devil.
THE UNREPENTANT: BOOK TWO
Estrella had a hero complex. Her twin sister, Hope, had teased her about it for as long as she could remember. She’d always been ready to go to battle for the underdog. She loved her job at the Boston P.D., loved that she could make a difference to people’s lives.
But when Hope is abducted outside a conference in Geneva, Estrella’s carefully ordered world takes a sharp left turn into darkness. Vowing revenge on the human traffickers that abducted Hope, she begins her hunt for justice.
Throw in her best friend, two wildly inappropriate gifts from her pseudo-parent Lucifer, and a sexy mercenary from her past, and she has everything she needs to break the people who broke Hope. Blood will spill and her inner darkness will rise, but Estrella doesn’t care. She may have a savior complex, but what people didn’t seem to realize was she had never been the good twin.
THE FALLEN: BOOK THREE
Hope had always been different. The child that should never have been. A fragile creature who’s empathy made her universally loved by those who knew her. An anomalous mixture of both humanity and the Divine, she walked the line between human and something more.
After she was abducted while on a business trip in Europe, Hope is forced to try and find herself beneath the emotions and expectations of others. However, that’s a hard thing to do when she is surrounded by Fallen Angels that all seem to want something from her. Mephistopheles looked at her like she was the key to something he had lost, and Gusion was haunted by a million possible futures that only he could see.
Then there was The Angel of Death who kept appearing to stare at the “aberration” like she was as an animal at the zoo, and a hitman who’d been coerced into being her unwilling bodyguard. Her life was a complicated mess.
If only she knew what was to come…
**** Bonus HELL'S REDEMPTION SERIES Novella: UNHALLOWED ****
Includes BONUS first chapter in Grace McGinty's new series: NEWLY UNDEAD IN DARK RIVER
My life changed forever the night I died. I’d like to think that that’s where the story begins, but the truth is it began the moment I was born.
It turns out I’m a phoenix, and the seven deadly sins? They exist in the form of ancient and powerful stones.
Once pillars of virtue, the stones are now corrupt. It’s up to the Guardian Royals, a group of four powerful dragon princes, to retrieve the stones from the monsters hell-bent on destroying the world. Whoever holds all seven stones controls the realms.
That’s where I come in. Only a phoenix can transform the stone’s powers back to good and restore harmony.
If I fail, all hell will break loose and I really don’t want to be responsible for the apocalypse.
Good thing I have my dragons to help me.
Mateo, the alpha and True Shifter, determined to fight the desire building between us. Hart, the man with the wicked mouth intent on claiming me first. Arren and Vale, the fire and ice twins. One's a healer with soulful eyes and dark secrets. The other's an assassin with a cold heart and a cruel mouth. All of them want to protect me.
Then there’s Brock. Not a Royal Dragon. He’s my ex, and I’m bound to him. I’d gladly sever the ties if it didn’t mean he had to die. I may be desperate, but I’m not heartless. My dragons, on the other hand? Brock better watch his back.
If you love royal dragons, steamy scenes, and a female heroine who learns to embrace *ALL* her powers, then slip inside the word of the Guardian Royals.
Thoughts from Paige
Wowza, this kicked off with a bang and I'm on chapter 14 before I knew it.
This is our town. We are the ones who ultimately decide whether you live or die, so be careful what sins you commit.
We’re the Deadly Seven, the rejects, and we represent death to anyone who crosses a line we deem unacceptable.
When she shows up in our town like some innocent avenging Angel, we don’t know what to think…so we watch. And the more we watch, the more obsessed we become.
I’ve been on the run for the past four years. My Dad has done everything in his power to keep me hidden from the man who wants to destroy me, but you can only run for so long before you have to stop.
Officially in Witness Protection, this is supposed to be my chance to finally have a normal life…but nothing is ever foolproof.
If you think it is, you’re naive.
I know I’m being watched. I can feel eyes on me every second of every day. I don’t think I’m as safe here as they want us to believe…
*This is book 1 in a 4 book series that must be read in order.*
**Dark Romance with stalking, non/con, dub/con and much much more. Read TW before attempting to read this series!**
***This is a reverse harem romance where the main character ends up with 3+ men. In this case, 7. If that isn't your thing then this series is not the right one for you. This book will also contain M/M scenes.***
Thoughts from Paige
This book seems to tick a bunch of our recent requests, it has themes surrounding the seven deadly sins, a large harem, mm in the harem...
