Shades of Desire by L.M. Pruitt - Blog Tour

All I wanted was a little peace and quiet.

Instead, I've got dead Covenant members and a steady stream of letters from the new guy in town. His beverage of choice? A 2002 Merlot, with a shot or two of powerful virgin blood.

On top of that, I'm breaking in a new police liaison, failing at playing matchmaker, and fighting nausea like it's a full time job.

Did I forget to mention that I've also got enough girls living at the Crossroads to start my own boarding school?

Peace and quiet? Out the window.


My Review:

Shades of Desire (Jude Magdalyn, #2)by L.M. Pruitt

LM Pruitt's has given us an excellent second novel in the Jude Magdalyn series. Shades of Desire continues off where Shades of Gray ends.

Jude is pregnant and she calls her unborn baby a bump….lol you have to read this book it made me laugh so many times and the wit and sarcasm is written extremely well. When a author can make me smile and laugh out loud you know the writing is good.

So the story continues and young women are being killed and it’s up to Jude to solve this mystery and put an end to the killings. The new police Detective Rhett and William (vampire) are there to help her along the way and did I mention how handsome and sexy these two are.

This book has everything a great story should have, humor, suspense, romance, sex, action, vampires, magic and mystery…need I say more.

I can’t say too much more without putting spoiler warnings, but take my word for it L.M. Pruitt has written a really great story and this is a series I am going to continue to read.

I would recommend anyone who is reading my post to click on the buy links below and pick up a copy for yourself. 

Shades of Gray
Book One
By L.M. Pruitt

Jude Magdalyn Henries lives what many would call an unconventional life.

Orphaned at birth, raised by nuns, a teenage runaway living on the streets... she now earns a living at odd jobs, including one as a fake tarot card reader. Very little about Jude's life appears normal, by any scale.

When she accepts a gig to do a private reading, unconventional takes on an entirely new meaning. Life as she knows it ends when she's thrust into a world she never knew existed-one filled with magic, vampires, and her beloved New Orleans on the verge of an underground war.

To make matters worse, she's got two men in her life vying for attention, Williams and Theo. Both call to a different part of her, but one scares her just a little bit.

Can she step up to the challenges set before her and make the right choices for the greater good?

My Review:

This is the first book in the Jude Magdalyn series, it is a really great story, and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed every page.

The humor, wit and sarcasm is some fantastic writing and I truly enjoyed reading Shades of Gray. L.M. Pruitt is an excellent author, the character description are written extremely well you get to know everyone, the story flows so well that you have a hard time putting this book down.

Jude is a really great main character, when we meet her she is working as a fake tarot card reader.... growing up on the streets Jude is a street hustler and knows how to work people. When she meets a man named William and she finds out things about herself and her destiny.

She meets a group of people who are called the Convenant and Jude is taken under leader’s wings to help her learn about herself and powers.

Jude is a fantastic heroine and I love her sarcasm and wit, this is a great read and I recommend everyone to go read this series. Check out the buy links below.
