Genre: Western Historical | Fantasy
Harker’s Hell. Early settlers thought they’d found a western re-creationist’s heaven. Instead, the new world is a hellish version of the Old West. Now the seeds of long-ago conflict are stirring to life.

Dissonance Walker believed she’d seen the worst life had to offer, only to find she’s dead wrong. Sold to a secret organization by her parents for the price of a new stove, her ability to disobey is ripped away by a brutal experiment. Determined to find the key to restore her freedom, she manages to escape her captors, only to end up in the worst place for a woman that can’t say no—on a saloon stage, ready to be sold to the highest bidder.

Bram Spencer is sure the heat has baked his brains. With his friend murdered and his ranch under attack, he needs to attend a little unfinished business. Buying some fool woman because she pokes at scabs he thought long healed, isn’t on the list. It’s bad enough he has to go through the fuss of rescuing her, now he discovers the only way to grant her freedom is to marry her. This is why he never plays the hero—no good deed goes unpunished.

Secrets have a long life. Sometimes decades. Now the sins of the past have returned, ready to collect their dues. Only trust can save Dissonance and Bram from a shocking evil… but trust is a hard commodity to come by on the frontier.



A western sci-fi romantic fantasy. This criss-cross of genre is what lured me to read Alvania Scarborough's DISOBEDIENCE. Bounty hunters, outlaws, and gun slingers ruling this frontier, it's sure to be one wild ride. I love the old Western feel of the novel, after watching Hell on Wheels, I could clearly imagine Harker's Hell, tumbleweeds, horse manure, and all. I also liked the hidden treasure theory and the whole search for it as well as the crazy scientists who are after Dissonance. Exciting madcap of events towards the end there.

Dissonance Walker and Bram Spencer. These two were on fire! Kimberly, I didn't know you read super sexy reads like this!! You little sneak! Anyway, I'm surprised these two didn't start a fire with all the friction they've created in the bedroom. Whew! 

DISOBEDIENCE, though tagged Sci-Fi/Western Fantasy felt more like Western Historical romance for me. Not that it's bad, I was just expecting something like Cowboys and Aliens, with maybe some small nuances that would notate that this isn't exactly the Wild West. Also, Dissonance supposedly has a chip that compels her to obey a command. Fascinating premise but it's either the chip is flawed or Dissonance's will is stronger because the lady didn't have much problem disobeying IMO. Girl's sassy, not that it's bad, it just didn't match the premise. 

I recommend DISOBEDIENCE if you love Western Historical romances though. Just don't expect too much on the fantasy aspect.

Series: Edge Season 2 Part 1
Format: Mobi
Release Date: May 18, 2015
Publisher: Self

Genre: New Adult | Fantasy
Immortals never resolve conflict with lovers or enemies. They either entomb the turmoil, literally, or shroud it in their past, never expecting to face the fight once more. Knowing if they ever did, for better or worse, life would never be the same again.

Five years ago life was good at the Boneyard. The Sons, led by Reveca Beauregard, were unstoppable. Judge was in love. For the first time in his existence, he’d found acceptance, balance, and a rush in a lover. He found it within the soul of Adair Vallet, a mortal. In one beat, the unthinkable befell the Sons. One of their own turned on them, forcing a divide. A Son had to die. A lover had to be let go. And for Judge, life stopped.

Today, Adair Vallet is oblivious of the man’s heart she still holds, yet she mourns the emptiness she feels within. Her life explodes into action when the dead rise and she’s forced into the clutches of the Pentacle Sons. Quickly she finds herself twisted into a malevolent past thick with betrayal, mysticism, and passion. Edge is a novella series in a Paranormal Biker Romance, set in the great city of New Orleans. Rich with action, mystery, romance, and mysticism.


DISCLAIMER: Edge is a serial and each "episode" has 4 chapters. The season 1 omnibus is already out. Season 2 just started, this is the first part. 

EDGE season 2, episode 1 was a little heartbreaking for me. We got a little peak into the Pentacle Sons' past and it wasn't a pretty backstory. Betrayals, deaths, sacrifices, love lost, gah! It's so hard when one of your own does the betraying. Also, I didn't really pay much attention to Adair in the previous episoded, that's all changed now for sure! I'm just not certain where this puts her in the whole scheme of things. Unless I got it wrong, I get the feeling that she's not necessarily Team Reveca right now...

Speaking of. Queen Bee, Reveca Beauregard, is sick and tired of all the bullshit that's going on around her. So what does she do? She frickin' moves an entire house, more like a mansion, using magic. Damn, can she do that for me too?! Anyway,  obviously, Reveca can't handle the pressure of her love life currently. King's pull is just too much and Talon is like the Tasmanial Devil, spinning little angry twisters and Reveca just needs a break from all of it! Good call, girl! Give the boys time out.

Speaking of Judge. Oh my, I think I got a crush on him. He went all Alpha here but Adair is so dense! With all that power and magic, why can't she figure out the obvious?!

  1. That's something I've never come across before: Western Sci-Fi. Say, what? I tend to stay away from serials, but I'll be keeping a watch on your reviews for Edge.

    Lovely quick hits!

  4. I've heard of the first book before but not the second I confess. The sci-fi part didn't attract me for the first I confess as well it's a tricky genre for me.

    1. I understand, Western and sci-fi don't really go hand in hand much. But the fantasy part was almost zero for Disobedience, it was a romance for the most part.

  11. I've had my eye on Harker's Hell for the same reasons it caught your eye. Good to know that the sci-fi aspect isn't as prevalent. That is weird that the chip thing didn't get more emphasis since that was an interesting twist.

    1. I was hoping that would be the focal point like the whole chip-program to obey-mad scientists thing. It sort of faded into the background and the romance/sex was more emphasized? Not that I mind, I guess I was expecting something different.

  12. I think I remember Kim's review of Disobedience, too! ;) I might have to give it a go. And The Edge...yeah, I'm definitely going to pick up that one. You have me so curious about it.

    Hope you're having a great week so far, Braine!

  14. I have been close to DNF-ing Disobedience...but it has such good reviews so I am wondering if there is something wrong with me instead! I'm going to pick it back up since you liked it.

    1. Oof, I struggled with it too. I had to let go of getting a good chunk of fantasy for me to appreciate it. Just focus on the romance and you'll be fine :)

  15. I remember Kimba's review of Disobedience. I'm not sure it would work for me cause it's so sexy, but the idea of it all is really interesting!

    1. If that's the case, skip it, it's very sexy.

  16. Well that's a shame the western didn't pull through on the sci-fi bits. I was thinking whoa that's really different. I do love western historicals though. I've got it on the list :D

    1. Then you will enjoy Disobedience more than I did. I was after the fantasy part, I got heavy romance instead.

  17. The Edge sounds really interesting, but I'm not a fan of serials. I'll wait until the entire book is out and try it then. Great review.
