Meet the Author

Krystal Shannan goes to sleep every night dreaming of mythical realms with werewolves, vampires, fae, and dragons. Occasional a fabulous, completely human story slips into the mix, but powers and abilities usually crop up without fail, twisting reality into whatever her mind can conceive.

As a child, her parents encouraged her interests in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology and all things historical and magickal. As an adult, the interests only grew. She is a child of Neverland and refuses to ever stop believing in fairies. She is guilty of indulging in and being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer groupie as well as an Angel fan. For those of you unfamiliar with the world of Joss Whedon, you are missing out!

She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay..... If you don't know the end of that phrase, then you probably don't like the same movies.

She enjoys reading romance in all genres, but especially paranormal. Her favorite book is ACHERON by Sherrilyn Kenyon. But really, if it has a 'Happily Ever After', she's on board!

Krystal writes stories full of action, snark, magick, and heart-felt emotion. If you are looking for leisurely-paced sweet romance, her books are probably not for you. However, for those looking for a magickal ride, filled with adventure, passion, and just a hint of humor. Welcome home.

    This review is from: Lizzy (A MacLaughlin Family Novella) (Kindle Edition)
    This is the 4th and final book of the MacLaughlin series and this is Lizzy MacLaughlin's story. She's in love with her brothers friend, Ethan Hart and doesn't have any easy time of it, between three protective brothers and a secret she harbors and knows she's going to have to tell Ethan. Ethan Hart is an ex-Army sniper and is now in the FBI and is so in love with Lizzy and they manage to get some time together despite the overprotective brothers. He has a secret too and his will cause problems. However, they will survive despite everything. This story was the best of all of them between the twists and turns, the suspense, drama and hot romance. This one even made me cry some and you'll have to find out for yourself the outcome. I'm so sorry this series has come to an end - I just loved this family and so will you.

    This final book in the series and I think my favourite, maybe because we have had a chance to get to know
    Lizziy across the other books, but this one definitely takes the cake, it is more emotional than the others but
    just as romantic and sexy.
    Lizzy has always been so supportive of her brothers and their girls and they have been so overprotective of her.
    I had been hoping for this romance and I wasn't disappointed. 
    I couldn't help but like Ethan and anyone who could get past the brothers to their sister had to be pretty good.
    The way he treats Lizzy is how every woman dreams of being treated, "She was the light at the end of his
    dark and stressful tunnel. He looked forward to a long committed relationship with her for as long as she
    would have him." "She was what he’d been looking for. Her smile made each day worth living." Wow, he's got me. 
    Although this is a short story it is so complete that you do not miss out on a thing, with a definite story, wonderful
    characters, old friends revisited, it's a short but sexy and emotional story that you will enjoy from start to finish.

    Book 4 in the MacLaughlin Family Series is Lizzy's story. This one was my favorite. It was another short, erotic story, but it also had a lot of action in it, and I love that.

    Lizzy is the sister of the very protective MacLaughlin men. She is sweet, strong, spunky and fun. And she is inlove with Ethan. Ethan is an ex military man that now works for the FBI. He is a very strong, but caring character, and he is inlove with Lizzy. Lizzy has a secret that she needs to share with Ethan. Ethan has a past that comes back to haunt him. But together they can make it through anything.

    I absolutely loved this book. I wish it were a full novel, but don't feel like I lost anything with it being a shorter novella. It was full of romance, surprise and suspense, and I would highly recommend it!

    *I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review.

    ' I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review'

    This is unfortunately the final book in the series but Krystal ended the series wonderfully.

    Lizzy is Harvey, Caiden an Trevor's little sister to say that they are overly protective of her is an understatement. They tend to scare off most men that she dates. They are tolerating Ethan because he is friends with their friend Logan. Lizzy is tired of having to catch stolen moments with Ethan she is so excited to have a weekend away with him. But things seem to be getting serious with them and Lizzy has a secret that may push Ethan away.

    Ethan loves Lizzy but he has not told her anything about his family. His half brother is in jail and no good. With his half brother locked up he feels there is nothing to worry about and is excited about his weekend with Lizzy. Before they leave she drops a bomb on him but it does not matter to him. He loves her and they will work through the issue when the time comes. Although with her recent afflictions he does have his suspicions that a miracle may have happened.

    Unfortunately for Ethan, Lizzy is going to find out about his half brother the hard way as he got out of jail early and Ethan was not informed. Will Ethan and Lizzy make it away from his half brother alive or will his half brother get his revenge?

    I am so sad that this is the final book in this series. But I can honestly count this as one of my favorites. After planning a romantic weekend getaway Lizzy and Ethan go through hell. Ethan will do anything to protect Lizzy when she is in danger. This whole series was great and Lizzy was well worth the wait. I was on the edge of my seat with this book. I highly recommend reading. I look forward to reading whatever Krystal comes up with next!

    I Also Recommend:

    The fourth novella in the MacLaughlin Family series is an emotio

    The fourth novella in the MacLaughlin Family series is an emotionally moving romance that captures the heart.
    Lizzy MacLaughlin’s secret caused the last man to leave without a word, now, utterly in love she hopes her relationship with retired army ranger Ethan Hart won’t end the same way.  With warring schedules making time together precious, Ethan’s taking Lizzy for a weekend getaway at his grandfather’s cabin. But Ethan’s past is coming hell-bent on destroying what Ethan hold’s dear.
    This fast paced plot grabs a hold of the reader and doesn’t let go. The vivid imagery, details and wonderful characters bring this romantic drama to life.  The reader can’t help but get caught up emotionally in the unfolding drama and the author causes a few quite a few tears as well as smiles throughout. The romance is hot and the sex scenes steamy, and the action and drama of this romance keeps the reader on edge.
    I don’t know exactly how Krystal Shannan packs so much punch into such a short novella, but I was totally caught up in the story and couldn’t put it down. I have read each of the four novellas and I must say that this is my favorite, even if she did make me cry.

    I absolutely loved this book... Lizzy is the fourth and last nov

    I absolutely loved this book... Lizzy is the fourth and last novella in the MacLaughlin Series. This book personally touched my heart and Dammit Krystal Shannan made me cry as I can relate to Lizzy. 




    Lizzy one strong lady and is the only girl of the MacLaughlin Clan which means she is much loved and have those who want to protect her. She has a heart breaking secret and Ethan is the perfect hero for her, in every way. He easily accepts her secret but knows that their could be something else going on with her.




    There is so much that happens in this book I have a hard time not spoiling it. Lizzy will invoke every feeling you have, desire, anger, fear, sadness, happiness and love.

    Get your tissues ready

    Two words... I cried.

    I was fortunate enough to be given an ARC of Lizzy by the author in exchange for an honest review and I do mean fortunate. Having read the previous books in the MacLaughlin Family series I was already vaguely familiar with Lizzy. She does not make a very big appearance in the previous books, so if you have not read then, no worries. She does however dominate this book.

    Lizzy begins with a bit of humor and playfulness between Lizzy and Ethan. I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. But things get very serious, very quickly. Shannan managed to fit a whole lot of story into a small amount of pages, yet the story itself does not suffer for it. This story spoke to me in a way no other ever has before. The emotional and heartrending topic will touch many readers and I hope everyone loves this book as much as I did.

    Fair warning... make sure to have a book of tissues handy before you begin.

    Lizzy A MacLaughlin novella I was given this book to read

    Lizzy A MacLaughlin novella
    I was given this book to read and give an honest review I have read this series and enjoyed all the book, but this one is my favorite.
    Lizzy is the sister of 3 brothers all of which I feel made her into the person she is. Lizzy is a sweet, smart person and has been seeing Ethan as her love interest for awhile . The way the author has written this series it is not a must to read all of them . Each carries it own story, but I suggest you do read the series because this is a great family and each book is about a different member of the family , and is nice to follow the brothers and their life. With all her brothers getting married or in serious relationship Lizzy has been following her goals, but is head over heels for Ethan. He has been in and out of the picture for a while but seems now this relationship has come to a point where happy ever after is in the picture. BUT Lizzy and Ethan have secrets that stand to make this relationship go adrift. Will they overcome and have happy ever after ??????? The story line of this book is very potent, there is humor and a good storyline but still made me cry . Please check out this book and the whole series , it is so worth reading I give it 5 stars

    This is the 4th and sadly last book in the Maclaughin series and in my opinion the best. Lizzy is a beautiful, strong, sassy woman with a painful secret. Ethan is a hot, caring, drool-worthy man who is determined to protect the woman he loves. Will Lizzy’s secret break them up or will Ethan’s past destroy their future? This was a great, quick read and I found myself invested in the couple right away. I highly recommend this series; my only complaint is that it ended too soon.
