Phoenix Reborn Spotlight~Review

Phoenix Reborn
By Eden Glenn
Publisher: Rebel Ink Press
Phoenix shifter, Phyro Khant, and her dragon bodyguard, Tameron Murphy, are two loners that bonded together for love and safety. But their never-ending need to evade the dark witches that hunt Phyro for her Phoenix tears, blood and more, has worn them down and flat lined their relationship.
When Tam purchases Phyro an amethyst pendant from Salynne’s Crystals and Thyme, her efforts to imbue the stone with protective power backfires and grabs them with a spell previously coded into the stone. The magic ignites an inferno of passion the two lovers can’t seem to quench with any amount of sex.
Will their explosive passion be enough to teach them how to trust in time to accept the help they need from outsiders or will the witches win their final bid for power and control of the phoenix magic?

Her eyes fluttered shut. She slowed her breathing, sinking deeper to a place of in between. She drifted in and out of consciousness wishing she could remember what had happened to leave her in this battered state, naked on the ground. Naked seemed to indicate that at some juncture she had shifted to avian form to escape someone. How else could she have gotten this deep into the forest? She couldn’t worry about being safe or not, there wasn’t energy to fight. Be calm and let her Phoenix nature do its job. She’d trust to come out the other side stronger.
She willed her body to heal and grasped at wisps of memory. A metaphysical pull tugged inside her, one of loss and longing. Struggling to sit up, she gasped for breath in shallow pants. The raw clenched energy twisted her again. Tam! She needed to be home with her mate. Something had drawn her from their apartment without leaving word for Tam that she would be away. Phyro shook her head trying to clear her thoughts. No… bad idea, too soon. She groaned and lay back. Damn. Five minutes more. The setting sun warmed her skin.
The energy wrenched her again. Her shape dissolved and reformed without conscious thought or will to follow the summons of her chosen mate. She took to the air in Phoenix form with a scream of exhilaration at her freedom, flying toward the source.

Eden Glenn and her partner "the Lady Librarian" live in the eastern lee of the Appalachian Mountains outside of Asheville, NC in a quaint home brimming of southern charm. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful southern gardens that bloom year round and give Eden lots of garden projects to enjoy. Their family includes a cat and a lovable nuisance dog (Lab X Great Dane) that should be in Japan. Eden has blue eyes, but her hair color is subject to change without notice.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

Scorching Hot Sex

Do you have a process?
I write a blurb concept and send that to my editor. They approve the concept and then I write to that blurb. If they like what I finish with they buy it and publish. Sometimes my concept changes in the course of the work. I can’t plot yet got frustrated with being totally organic so I know my conflict and major turning points.

Some of my favorite authors inspire me and at the same time humble me. Wall Bangers remind me that I can write better than that. LOL

What will you be working on next?

What is your greatest fear about being an author/publishing your book(s)?
I guess I fear no one will read them. Ha!

Would the 10 year-old version of yourself kick your butt or praise you for what you've accomplished in life?
My ten year old self would swoon in fan worship and say “God I so want to be you!” LOL

Favorite Line “His presence became a beacon, a stolen moment of kindness in her bleak existence.”
“Tam, baby, I love you so much. I was lost and you found me.”
“Bird song warbled from her forgotten voice and she sang of wasted lives, sacrifice, and foregone love. A song of passion and one of freedom that death finally brings.”
“In your love, I am reborn.”
What a yummy and torturous story! Phyro and Tam are so in love but so hunted! Phyro is a Phoenix YEP A PHOENIX!!! The Dark witches want her! They have been after her forever they got her mother and now they want her! Tam will do anything to protect Phyro, did I mention she's a Dragon/Snow Leopard? OH YES SHE IS! This a great little start to what I'm hoping will follow with a great big story as follow up! 
The author literally wrote about a paranormal I haven't read about before! That's in itself is amazing, add to it steamy scenes, kick butt fighting, and oh so sexy characters and you have this amazing story! Can't wait to see what comes next!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review
