Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

convinced she is a corporate spy and determines not to release her.
In his mind he has two options: kill her by draining her of blood, or
keep her as a slave on his private island. He has no idea that the
scrappy little blonde with excellent tits and impossible hair will
end up capturing a heart he didn’t know he possessed.

I’ve Broken the Most
Important Rule of Being a Shifter King—Never Fall in Love with the

Blaire and her best friend Melanie win the
vacation of a lifetime—an all-inclusive cruise to Bora Bora. Once
aboard, the girls start to notice it's not your ordinary luxury
cruise line. Something more sinister is at work. They are surrounded
by shifters with insatiable appetites, leaving the girls to question
how badly they want to remain aboard ship.

Two big secrets. One steamy vacation in the Hawaiian islands. Will
Ireland and Sully find what they want most in each other?

needed a break. It had been a rough year and she needed a fresh
start. Her coven was embroiled in a civil war and when she refused to
fall in line with the rest of them, she was kicked to the curb. By
her friends, by her family, even by her boyfriend. She'd moved past
the grief stage, even past the anger stage. For the first time in her
life, she was free to do what she wanted. She had no one's
expectations to fill but her own. So, she decided to celebrate. She
bought herself a three-week vacation to Hawaii. No responsibilities.
Just fun in the sun and time to figure out what was next for
When Sully brought home two tickets to Hawaii, he thought
Kallie would be thrilled. He'd envisioned three idyllic weeks on a
tropical island. Swimming in the ocean, laying on the beach, catching
a few waves, and eating in world class restaurants. But within an
hour, he found himself holding an extra ticket as he watched Kallie
put the last of her bags in another man's truck. He'd torn up that
ticket and flushed the pieces down the toilet. But he still had every
intention of using that other ticket. Maybe some time alone was
exactly what he needed.

Both dead on the inside, until a spark ignited a fire
they couldn’t outrun. Will they be able to withstand the heat or
will they get burned by their flames?

The most sought
after hired gun. She’s ruthless, but even killers need a vacation.
He’s being hunted and there’s only one warrior strong enough to
keep him alive. A king whose seeking protection and a killer
searching for peace, but in each other they find so much more. When
survival instincts kick in, so do their primitive instincts. This
summer won’t be the only thing heating up.

name is
and my last name,
is pronounced “Die-ster.” I always tell my husband I should have
kept my married name, Ingram. So much easier to to pronounce!

am a writer thoroughly in love with words. Reading them, writing
them… I love that words can take you outside of your world and let
the unimaginable become imaginable. I love them so much that I
decided I needed to create some worlds and stories of my own!
being a writer, I am an Army veteran (and Army wife) and a mom to
four sons. I grew up in northern New York in a tiny college town
called Potsdam. Over the years, our Army life has taken us all over
the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some
pretty amazing places. Right now we live in Hawaii on the island of

living through music, writing and yoga.
love the arts and how they move you and make you feel.
has always been a great love of mine right after my love of music.
Each song written is a story waiting to be told. Which, along with my
over active imagination fueled my desire to write about the chaos
that goes on in my head.
love stringing words together. I love making people get lost in a
story and connecting with fictional characters that remind them of
someone they know.
published my first book Shattered in 2013. It’s the first
installment in the Shattered Hearts Series. Shattered started out as
an assignment for a college course I took at John Jay College of
Criminal Justice. After I graduated college I went through my old
papers and reconnected with the story morphing into so much more then
what I wrote in my college course.
you can find me doing yoga, listening to music and working on getting
out all the stories in my head, including dabbling in poetry. (Which
I've always had a secret love affair with).
