Kindles in the Wild – Phoenix and the Wolf – Bianca D’Arc – August 14, 2021

Well, it is once again that time, you know when you have to drive your spawn back to school and leave them to fend for themselves. We always try to go up a few days before so we can experience some of the local attractions, especially in the summer so we can get out on the lake. This one is a multiple location for the same book because we decided to go around the entire loop of Presque Isle and decided to check out the monument while we were there.

We started out at the Perry Monument. You can’t go inside the monument, but the area is set up like a park with benches and observation binoculars so you can spend as much time as the weather allows, and there are the plates telling you about the area, the monument, and a lot of other historical facts.

Then we headed on down the road to our true location, the lighthouse. If you want to talk historical facts, this location is covered in them. You can go into the house for free and check out the exhibits and read the placards, but the real history comes when you pay to take the lighthouse tour. One of the staff members sits and gives you a brief history lesson and then you start up the stairs. The 78 narrow stairs, that turn into more of a ladder when you get to the top.

Mollee wouldn’t take the lighthouse tour, her and heights do not get on, but you can see her guarding our things at the picnic table in the yard. When you get to the top be sure to watch your head, and then look out at the horizon. You can see 14.5 miles into the distance on a clear day, and it is a true sight to behold. There is not much room for moving around at the top, but it was well worth the climb and you should certainly look it up if you are in the area.

I think the book that went with me on our little trek was perfect. What better book then a phoenix on fire for a lighthouse that brings you home in the dark. This author is one of my favorite authors! Be it her SciFi romance books or her PNR romance books, I am a true addict. She has this way with her characters that makes them feel so real and I find myself becoming invested in the outcome. And the storylines have just the right action, danger, romance, and love to keep me coming back for many times to come. Especially this spinoff series to her tales of the were. I love how her phoenix shifters mean big change for her PNR world and each of them is finding their perfect HEA. Believe me when I day that you can’t go wrong no matter which of her books you pick up to read.

Happy Reading

Author Bianca D’Arc

Diana doesn’t understand what’s happening to her. She feels drawn to the sun and dreams of flying under her own power, but her commitments in the real world—and the grandmother who depends on her—keep her grounded. Then her car breaks down in front of a high-end repair yard and she meets a man who makes her want to forget all her responsibilities and take a walk on the wild side...with him. Stone’s enchanted by the redheaded damsel. He’s charmed by the way she talks to her grandma on the phone. And he’s totally ensnared by the idea that she might actually be his mate. But there’s something about her... Something intensely magical and a bit too familiar. Could she be another of the near-mythical phoenix shifters? Or is she something else entirely?

Official published review:

A fire as red as her hair

This series just keeps getting more exciting. I love that the pack is growing and that the right person is in the right place at just the right time. The author did a fantastic job of linking this book with the first book. I especially enjoyed the way the alpha dropped everything to save another damsel in distress. I kind of hope it’s a continuing theme. I guess we will see when the next book comes out. I can’t wait!
