    I really enjoyed being back in this world full of magic, the fae and of course the Baba Yagas . What makes this book so special though is the previously unflappable Gregori Sun. Gregori has always seemed the one most in tune with the universe and his place within it but recent events have left him in inner turmoil.

    I really enjoyed being back in this world full of magic, the fae and of course the Baba Yagas . What makes this book so special though is the previously unflappable Gregori Sun. Gregori has always seemed the one most in tune with the universe and his place within it but recent events have left him in inner turmoil. No longer immortal, no longer a Rider and now discovering latent powers that he has no idea how to control! Ok time to take action and Gregori feels his place is in meditation readying himself for life as a Monk but it turns out that perhaps the universe has other ideas !

    Ciera has reinvented herself. No longer a runaway, no longer dependent on drugs but now a model citizen working as a librarian and helping those less fortunate. Oh who am I kidding? It would be a boring story if nothing untoward was happening and the truth is Ciera has a secret of her own ! Their initial meeting might be coincidental but there's a connection between them that confuses Gregori. Still he hasn't time for romance and really needs help discovering his roots but not everyone wants Gregori to retrace his past !

    Most paranormal stories have good versus evil but this book offers us more than one villain and it's really a twisting tale that had me gripped. These Riders are so very different to each other and I would definitely recommend starting with the Baba Yaga books but right now it's all about Gregori getting his mojo back and he manages that with some very unexpected intervention! What can I say? With families you never quite know what to expect!

    This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    What an amazing ride Deborah Blake has taken us on! The three immortal brothers, protectors of the Baba Yagas, have lost their immortality to a power hungry individual and now the always confident, Gregori, is struggling to find his way.

    is Gregori’s story.

    Gregori has decided to become a monk, following a spiritual path that his mother had instilled in him since an early age. As he goes down the path toward monkhood, he also wishes to discover whether his mother is still alive. Gregori goes where anyone would go to do research, to the library, where he meets a librarian he just can’t get out of his mind, Ciera Evans.

    Ciera is on the run from someone in her past and is weary of anyone new. When Gregori turns up at the library she doesn’t think much of it but then he also keeps showing up in other places in her life she suspects him of being an agent of her ex, the one she is running from.

    Gregori’s explorations into the elusive spiritual group that his mother started kicks off a goddess’ wrath, endangering Ciera, Gregori and everyone living the city. Together they must protect those they've come to care for and work together before its too late.

    was a gripping and completely riveting paranormal romance. I have loved the Baba Yaga series from the first installment I read and am now devouring Blake’s storytelling with the Broken Riders series. What else could a fan ask for…crossover characters, same Baba Yaga world, an explosive, action intense plot AND a swoon worth romance!

    The second of the three former Riders gets his story. Gregori Sun, the calm, logical, and oldest of the three brothers is unraveling at the seams. I wanted to bundle up each of these guys and heal them with a hug. But no... they have to make their own way back. Gregori's story and his extra special lady was captivating and emotional from the beginning.

    There was something extra special about this story that took it up several notches even from the first book, Mikhail's story. I suspect it was the themes of broken people, broken families, abuse, surviving and thriving, and paying it forward.

    Gregori and Ciera both are hanging by threads when they encounter one another. Ciera is in a better place from her past, but she is stirring up things in the dark she won't be able to handle when she puts herself on the radar of a drug cartel leader while Gregori is literally going to pieces and must find a way to control the supernatural gifts that are emerging since he was tortured and lost his immortality.

    Both have a hard row to hoe, but I loved how the author made this a romance story of two survivors finding each other and helping each other finish finding their strengths and that they can reach out to others in trust and have a chance at love.

    Things are pretty exciting and come at the pair from a few different angles. Both have enemies they aren't even aware of that are after them and both are on separate quests. It was neat and got in some great action moments along with a few Baba Yaga Bella and cat-dragon and Rider scenes which made me grin.

    Oh the feels I got from this book. There were bits of humor slipped in to make me chuckle, sweet ahhhs, passionate ohhhs, suspenseful page-turner scenes, and heartwarming triumphs.

    And now we're down to the last Rider, the big larger than life bear of man, Alexei. Can't wait to see what and who is in store for him.

    Dangerously Divine is probably my favorite book between both the Baba Yaga and Broken Riders series. Incidentally, my recommendations is to read them in order from the first Baba Yaga and on through in order because they work best that way. Those who enjoyed action, suspense, a bit of witchery, humor, and slow-burn passion in their paranormals should definitely pick these up.

    My thanks to Penguin Group for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

    “A witch, a Rider, a dragon, and a god walk into a monastery…”

    Dangerously Divine by Deborah Blake is the second ingeniously amazing installment in Deborah’s Broken Riders series. This series is a spin-off from and set in the same world as the author’s Baba Yaga series, a highly imaginative fractured retelling of the Russian Baba Yaga folk tales. This tale features Gregori Sun, the eldest Rider, who is struggling to control new powers gained when he lost his immortality. Fans of Deborah’s Baba Yaga series will be delighted to find characters from that series appear and play strong supporting roles in her Broken Riders series. Sharing the spotlight with Gregori in this story is a new character, Ciera Evans, a university librarian by day and a vigilante by night.

    While you could enjoy Dangerously Divine as a stand alone, my recommendation is to start at the beginning with the Baba Yaga series and then the Riders. They work best that way and, truly, you won’t want to miss one spellbinding moment!

    Gregori’s always been the unflappable Rider, but since losing his immortality, he’s lost his way. He used to be able to effortlessly connect to the universe’s energy with a single thought. Now, he’s beset by disturbing visions, precognition that he doesn’t trust nor know what to do with, and a healing gift that he can’t control. Seeking elusive inner peace, he enters a Buddhist monastery to pursue becoming a monk while using his free time to search for his mother, a female Mongolian shaman, who may be able to help him. With limited options, he doggedly continues his search for her even though his mother has probably been dead for hundreds of years. Still, driven to follow every possibility, he enlists the aid of Ciera, the librarian at the university to assist his research as to where his mother may be found. Ciera is curious as to why this sexy monk-in-training is interested in a Mongolian shamaness, but Ciera holds close her own secrets. She is not who she appears to be - intent on a clandestine mission of her own.

    I loved both of these characters! My heart went out to both of them as they’d both suffered such terrible trauma and sorrow. Would they ever learn to trust and follow their hearts? Their story kept me riveted from the first to the last…

    Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Dangerously Divine:

    The taxi driver dropped them off back at the Wabasha Street Caves and drove off clutching a huge tip and muttering under his breath about dog drool on his upholstery. In return, Chudo-Yudo muttered something about taxi drivers tasting good with ketchup.

    ---

    Only one kiss. That was what he had intended. But Ciera’s lips were sweet like the juice of a pomegranate, and her skin under his hands felt like velvet. When she put her arms around him, he deepened the kiss, pulling the pins out of her hair until it cascaded over her shoulders. The tiny jingle of the bits of metal falling to the floor was almost lost in the moan she let out when he moved his lips down her neck, and then he was lost too.

    ---

    “I also juggle,” he said in a grave tone, “and am quite adept with a deck of cards.”

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every Baba Yaga book and the first Rider book, but Dangerously Divine is my favorite of them all with wonderful characters, steamy times, action and danger galore, laugh-out loud moments and unexpected twists at every turn. I can’t wait to return to Barbara’s Baba Yaga/Rider world with Alexei’s story. It will be Deborah’s final Rider book. I fervently hope that that it won’t be the final book written in Deborah’s Baba Yagas' universe!

    I've loved all of Deborah's Baba Yaga books and am equally enjoying this series as well. This book is stronger than Dangerously Charming - I think the plot was more complex and I think Deborah's hitting her stride with these characters. I'm saddened to know that her publisher Berkley Sensation has decided not to publisher #3 :( but I'm hoping she'll either find a new publisher or do it on her own as I really want to read about the last rider Alexei!
