Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blood Heir


100% pure magic!!!

Julie has always fascinated me and her relationship with Derek is one to savour. However, in this story, Julie and Derek are just getting to know each other all over again, much to my delight ❤️

I was so pleased to see one of my favourite characters brought back, you’ll know who when you read the book.

This was one of those very rare books that had me gasping at the word “epilogue”. I can never get enough of this world and it physically pains me when a story ends.

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 to the authors once again.

Amour, Amour/The Failed Audition

(Aerial Ethereal/Circle is Family #1)


Listening time 13 hours 21 minutes
Love is a circus


"Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.”

The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.”

When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future--acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world.

Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be just background to his spellbinding show.

This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.

*standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*


I have no idea why I waited so long to read this story, possibly in deference to the famous ones, but this book is as equally as strong - but what would you expect from the authors.  

I loved the chemistry between Thora and Nikolai.
I loved Thora's determination to succeed.  
And I loved the rest of the Kotova family.  

I can't wait to read on.  Luka's story is next!

“This was unintentional.”
It became something more without noticing. Without realizing. “Am I a mistake—”
“No, myshka. You’re just the unexpected, beautiful thing in my life.”


“Trust me.”
“I don’t even know you,” I say softly, adrenaline pulsating through my veins. He has led me to the precipice of a cliff, pushed me off, and now he’s clasping my wrist. He can let go at any moment, and I will fall.

“Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me. I’m asking you, right now, to trust me.”
