    TL Clark brilliantly created the world of witches, sorcerers and battling clans of vampires The book is an enjoyably read Shakira started jogging in deep forests and ultimately, came to know that she is only half human This novel is a nice mix of fantacy and romance.

T.L Clark is notorious for making up words, one I stumbled across was Elinefae which are cat people believe me, I looked it up, but no luck with Google this time Wolfy wotsit, was another one I enjoyed .T.L Clark is a Reiki teacher master, does yoga, likes to stay healthy by making what she eats, being careful what she eats, loves writing in her pjs, is a cat lover, infact her cat Pusskins was her muse for this book, and I see what she means by that as T.L Clark takes us through the motions of what it s like to walk like a cat I follow T L Clark on different social media sites, and thought I would include the ones I follow..https www.bookbub.com authors tl clark Bookbubhttps instagram.com tlclarkauthor i Instagramhttps www.facebook.com TLClarkAuthor Facebookhttps twitter.com TLClarkAuthor s 20 Twitter Recommendation Love Bites, is a good one to read if you like like forests, paranormal, paranormal romance, fantasy fiction, fairies, fae, vampires, witch craft, dragons, sorcery and fantasy fiction also don t forget that this is a duology..Follow Contact me on Goodreads Tube

    Love Bites follows the life of Shakira, a young woman who has never really fit in anywhere She decides to move away from her family and to start a new life in a new town Shakira is drawn to Wales, especially to the mysterious forest bordering the small town of her new home The novel is a mix of self discovery, fantasy, and romance It was also a bit like reading a mystery I felt like I was discovering all the secrets of a magical world right alongside Shakira I love a good fantasy adventure Love Bites follows the life of Shakira, a young woman who has never really fit in anywhere She decides to move away from her family and to start a new life in a new town Shakira is drawn to Wales, especially to the mysterious forest bordering the small town of her new home The novel is a mix of self discovery, fantasy, and romance It was also a bit like reading a mystery I felt like I was discovering all the secrets of a magical world right alongside Shakira I love a good fantasy adventure with a healthy dose of romance Love Bites checks all of those boxes TL Clark did an excellent job of world building It was fun to discover the secret lives of smart witches, temperamental fairies, the mysterious elinefae, and shady sorcerers The pacing was good, with a slow build at the beginning and lots of action in the final chapters I m not a big fan of cliffhangers, and technically, Love Bites did not end on one All of the major issues are resolved, and all of the big questions are answered However, there is a twist at the end that is pretty huge Fortunately, the second book in TL Clark s duology is available At least I don t have to wait to find out what happens next

    Although this is not normally a genre I read, I d been following this particular author on Instagram for a while, so decided to give it a go, and I m very glad I did.Right from the start, the plot is engrossing and draws you into the tale Just why has Shakira left everything behind and run away to a tiny Welsh village What is it about her, that means she has found it impossible to ever feel she really belongs anywhere As the story unfolds, we discover that Shakira is muchthan she ever i Although this is not normally a genre I read, I d been following this particular author on Instagram for a while, so decided to give it a go, and I m very glad I did.Right from the start, the plot is engrossing and draws you into the tale Just why has Shakira left everything behind and run away to a tiny Welsh village What is it about her, that means she has found it impossible to ever feel she really belongs anywhere As the story unfolds, we discover that Shakira is muchthan she ever imagined possible, although I did doubt her intelligence when she went jogging in the woods, alone Has she never seen a horror film Believing this to be your typical YA novel, I was a little taken aback by the first graphic sex scene, yet they are very well written, so, once the initial shock is over, you settle down and simply enjoy them as a necessary part of the plot.The author has very cleverly built a credible and believable world around her characters, with enough backstory to inform, but not so much you get bogged down in the details, and I look forward to learningof this world in book two.The character of Shakira, as she morphs into Kira, develops nicely, learning her strengths along the way, but never losing sight of her humanity and compassion, which, in the end, turns out to be her greatest strength after all.There was a lot I really liked about this book, and only one tiny thing I didn t, and that was the split dialogue, which sometimes made it a little difficult to know whom was talking But that is just a personal observation, and in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the novel.The plot rolls along at a fair old pace, as witches, sorcerers and battling clans of vampires are thrown enjoyably into the mix, the whole thing interspersed with frequent deliciously naughty sex scenes On the whole, a very enjoyable read, and I look forward to the next book

    This was my first time reading this genre, and I liked it TL Clark has quite an imagination, and she does an excellent job describing the assorted magical groups including the Elinefae, who are cat like creatures As a cat lady myself, I enjoyed this incarnation of felines, which captures their fierceness, loyalty, and beauty.Love Bites, the first in the Darkness and Light Duology, centers around Shakira, a woman who has left her adopted family to find herself She discovers a lotthan she This was my first time reading this genre, and I liked it TL Clark has quite an imagination, and she does an excellent job describing the assorted magical groups including the Elinefae, who are cat like creatures As a cat lady myself, I enjoyed this incarnation of felines, which captures their fierceness, loyalty, and beauty.Love Bites, the first in the Darkness and Light Duology, centers around Shakira, a woman who has left her adopted family to find herself She discovers a lotthan she bargained for She s half Elinefae plus a powerful sorceress to boot, both of which prove to be a blessing and a curse She falls madly for Prygeri, her Elinefae soulmate, but she also must grapple with a sorcerer father who suspects her power may be greater than his A couple of good witches add to the hijinks, doling out a brew of humor, kindness, and context.The pace is brisk, and the plot easy to follow but not overly predictable While Shakira, later renamed Kiera, is the heroine, I enjoyed witch Lily the best due to her personality, which is sweet and occasionally sassy.While the dialogue is snappy and realistic, the heavy handed use of dialogue tags often coupled with ly adverbs was distracting Sometimes, the tag reiterated what was already covered in the speech, and other times, it was just a physical impossibility you can t breathe and speak at the same time as vocalizations only occur on an exhale.Overall, this criticism reflects my preferences, and I imagine most readers will be too caught up in the story to care I would rate something like this 3.5 stars, but I bumped it up to four since it was so much fun
