A. G. Macdonald talks about #CancelCulture | Fangirling @AG_Macdonald

Watch this video! So well stated about Cancel Culture and the major drawbacks of it ... as well as "Book Twitter" in general. I usually, except with CockyGate and "book stuffing" last year, try to stay out of it ... or I hear what others have to say about a certain topic and, because they articulate it better than I ever could, I decide to support them here ... like I am doing with this post. I appreciated what A. G., from A. G. Macdonald, had to say in his video (below) and I'd love to hear what your thoughts on his take with this topic are too.

"Marked for Them" [Witches of Rose Lake Series, Book 1] by Lia Davis

Author's Book Description : Hiding out in a mental institution isn’t glamorous. But I call it surviving.

I’m blissfully unaware of the world outside thanks to the hospital’s walls—and spell—that hide me. Until a ghost shows up, talking about his friends being marked by a demon. But not just any demon. The same one who marked me and wants me dead.

My father.

Fearful that Daddy Dearest could be my next uninvited guess, I choose to follow the ghost to his four very alive friends. To my relief, they want Salrus dead just as much as I do. What I’m not prepared for is finding out that Zane—the alpha wolf shifter—is my mate, and the demon mark links the six of us—ghost included—together on a deeper level than I ever imagined.

Teaming up and preparing to face the demon stirs up passion and dark secrets none of us are really ready to face.

"Marked for Them" is the first in a hot new reverse harem, paranormal romance series, Witches of Rose Lake.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! All of Reese’s life she has been living in seclusion and on the run. She is half-demon after all. Than with her father trying to kill her staying hidden is necessary. But when a ghost finds her and brings her to men who might be able to help protect her, she finds the courage to take it upon herself to make a new future for them all. Now they just have to be sure to defeat their common enemy (her father) before he rips their lives apart even more...

"Marry Your Billionaire" [The Billionaire's Reluctant Bride Series, Book 1] by Cynthia Savage

Author's Book Description : A CEO billionaire needs a wife to save his image. A desperate college student needs her trust fund to get her degree. A reality TV romance could solve all their problems.

Six years ago, Madelyn Knightly walked away from her trust fund, her Hollywood producer father, and the expectation that she would join the family business. Avoiding handsome playboys with hidden agendas was just an added bonus. Now one semester shy of graduation, she is shocked to discover her scholarship has lost its funding.

Her estranged father is having problems of his own. A contestant on his latest reality TV series has cancelled a week before shooting.

His solution?

Madelyn gets her trust fund back if she stands in as a potential marriage candidate for the dating series Marry Your Billionaire. Twenty women competing for one arrogant guy. Not Madelyn's cup of tea. Agreeing to this proposition sucks her back into the world she happily broke ties from.

But no trust fund equals no college degree.

Brody Prescott, CEO and owner of an online dating company, has recently been pegged a heartless playboy by a disgruntled female after a disappointing date. To save his company and his reputation as an honest businessman, the billionaire must prove to everyone he isn't the naughty bad boy they believe him to be.

His solution?

Become the first bachelor on Marry Your Billionaire and land himself a wife. Unfortunately, the woman who intrigues him the most wants to be eliminated. His careful planning did not include wooing a reluctant bride.

If Brody can't convince Madelyn he's interested in happily ever after, he risks losing his reputation and the only woman he has ever truly loved.

"Marry Your Billionaire" is Book 1 in the Billionaire’s Reluctant Wife series by Swoony Award-winning author Jennifer Griffith and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Savage.

All the books in the series are standalone romantic comedies with hunky heroes, hilarious twists, and clean-but-undeniable chemistry.

My Book Review : DNF. Fate and circumstance throw Madelyn (Midge) and Brody together, while Brody finds ways to keep Midge with him ... forever.

"Seduced By Wolves" [Moonlit Destiny Series, Book 1] by Ariel Sanders

Author's Book Description : What would you do if you knew that inevitably, one day the life you built for yourself would perish, leaving you with a whole new existence rising from its ashes?

Sadie Convel has always known that one day, regardless of where she went or how she lived her life, everything will change.

Growing up understanding the ways of the wolf, she is more prepared to accept her fate than most, but that doesn’t mean she is going to roll over and play directly into the wolves’ game.

Sadie is determined to figure out a way to live her own life, to embark on her own experiences and to forge her own path. Unfortunately, that means having to live solely with her memories.

That is until she is summoned...

Despite her mother’s well-wishes and her lifelong preparation, Sadie finds out quickly that she isn’t ready for that fateful letter when it arrives. Everything she ever had suddenly doesn’t matter.

Now, she must make a decision. Will the girl who is known for adventure be able to make the most out of her situation or will she try to outrun her inevitable fate?

For fans of Milly Taiden and T. S. Joyce stories!

Each book in the Moonlit Destiny series can be read as a standalone and has a guaranteed HEA, no cliffhanger!

"A Shift in the Water" [Elemental Shifter Series, Book 1] by Patricia D. Eddy

Author's Book Description : Can a werewolf lose his humanity?

Alpha wolf Cade can’t remember walking on two legs, talking, or even his own name. His pack gone, trapped in wolf form by an elemental’s spell, he has one chance at freedom: the beautiful, sad woman crying on an Orcas Island beach.

Dying from an unknown illness, Mara is saying goodbye to her favorite vacation spot when she finds a reason to fight off death a little longer—an injured wolf hiding in the trunk of her car. This animal needs her, and she’ll stay alive as long as she can to nurse him back to health.

Mara’s illness worsens, and after she passes out, she wakes with a naked man in her bed. Now she must face facts. Werewolves are real, she has magical abilities, and she just might have found her mate.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! A woman, who's at the brink of dying, because she is unaware of her elemental water powers, rescues a malnourished wolf (or so she thought) which she later finds is a werewolf. Their bond grows quickly. Yet when those from their pasts come after them, will they be able to fight for one another or will they let everything rip them apart?
