Reincarnated Love is anything but a retelling of a girl meets vampire story

This is one of my favorite vampire stories, it is terrifying, quirky, and well told with emotions that swing from laugh out loud funny to the fearful certainty 'she's dead this time" and back. The MC Katheryn did not win the parent lottery so she should have known something was up when hers invited her to go on vacation to meet the royal family of a small country. As expected they, had agreed to betroth her to a prince for a small fortune without her consent but she isn't interested. Trapped in a land of vampires and caught between the centuries long feud between brothers, she discovers something unexpected as she gets her revenge on her parents, evades her arranged marriage to one prince, struggles to prove the innocence of the other, and just tries to survive with the help of the ghost of her murdered predecessor. Reincarnated Revenge is the story behind the story.
This story is worth every moment spent reading and re-reading it. When it goes into print, I am putting it on my go-to shelf for books I love..

Alpha's Breeder

This is a very different take on a Werewolf mates story. I enjoyed it when I first found it on Wattpad almost two years ago, and I enjoyed reading it again. on Inkitt. Emi's reaction to being "trapped" in the werewolf world is interesting. I really enjoy it and recommend it for those who are looking for "Not Your Usual" werewolf mates story.

Must read before Halloween

I am NOT a fan of horror genre but I do love a good ghost story. This one had me engrossed in the beginning, annoyed with Lyn and excited for Mark. Sadly, they did not find the warning signs soon enough and I think I shall have nightmares about leeches. Overall I enjoy this short story.
