Ava Green has made a name for herself in the real estate world by reconditioning old, historical homes with her partner and friend Jeff. But her newest project, a three-story Victorian in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, promises to be her biggest moneymaker yet. And one she’s undertaking on her own. During her first walk-through of the house, however, she discovers a locked door, and a skeleton key that seems to appear out of nowhere. Unlocking the door, she is transported to a mystical world of fae and mythickal creatures and meets the King of the Morna. The sovereign of the Dark Elves.

King Finn Sylcan has searched for the one who can bring the magick back to his world, Edra, for eons. An old prophecy told of a female of both Dark and Light elven descent, a hybrid both Calim and Morna. It is said she is the only one who can repair the damage the war between the Dark and Light kingdoms caused. But after searching for so long, Finn never dreamed that she’d just show up outside his palace walls. Or that she’d be his mate.

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Right off the bat I love this world. It didn’t take long to find the key to enter this realm and open the door. I just don’t think I would have been as calm as Ava if my life turned to crap as quickly as hers did. I totally understand why she just wanted to get away after all that. She just had no idea how far she will really get away.

King Finn is the first person she meets on the other side. He is both surprised and shocked to see her. She is the one he has been looking for, the hybrid that the prophesy foretold. Now he has to convince her that she belongs in this world with him.

Ava’s parents had apparently kept a lot of things secret from her. The biggest one they were elves, her father a light prince and her mother a dark princess. Now she is in their realm and has to somehow save it and bring back the magic.

Finn gets his powers from the light and according to him, her magic is both dark and light, so she should be able to draw on either. This is a favorite scene, after an encounter with Finn’s Uncle Quinn who wants his throne.

Kellam spoke from the window. “She’s a Fire Elf.”

Finn studied her for a long moment. “No, I think she’s purely elemental. At least, that would make more sense because she is both Morna and Calim.”

“I still don’t want to believe it, but I can’t explain what happened out there.” She wrapped her arms around her waist, refusing to fall part. Not again. She’d done that once, when her parents died. And she’d vowed to be stronger.

“Come sit. Please.” Finn patted the couch cushion beside him.

With a sigh, she sat. “Why didn’t I have any of these powers before? And what triggered them now?”

“Simply being in this world could have triggered your magick. Like I said before, we are almost powerless in the human realm.” Finn caressed her cheek.

“You burned Quinn, wounded him.” Kellam glanced at her, one side of his mouth lifting in an approving smile.

Ava glanced from Kellam to Finn. “So my parents really were the elf couple that started the war.”

“Yes. I know it more now than ever.” Finn framed her face and pressed his lips to hers.

Desire flooded her in a hot wave. But too soon, he pulled away. “And only my fated mate could share her power with me.”

Her heart slammed to her feet. His fated mate? As in bride. She shook her head. “I don’t think—”

He placed a finger over her lips, stopping her denial. “I will not push you. The choice is yours. But you should know that I’m willing to do anything to make you mine, including seducing you.”

Cowboy Hunter McKade is former military police who survived two tours overseas, but when he came home, his wife and his life as he knew it, disappeared in an instant. Now a security guard at Poker Flat Nudist Resort, he exists in his dark place, requiring little social interaction – until the night he breaks the barrier that separates him from her. As a former prostitute from a high-end bordello, Adriana Perez loves sex – any kind, anywhere – and her rules are few. Her new bartending job at Poker Flat gives her lots of hospitality opportunities, so why is someone trying to get her fired? Baffled, she gratefully accepts Hunter’s help and protection, and is more than willing to show him her appreciation. But the man has far too much control.

Pushing Hunter beyond his boundaries becomes Adriana’s satisfying distraction. But the evidence against her mounts, and she ignores her gut to take matters into her own hands. Unfortunately, her best shot at fixing this may not be enough to save her job…or her heart.

This is the 3rd book in the Poker Flat series that began with Cowboys Never Fold.

 

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love the Poker Flats Series, I love Hunter, he is strong and protective, and Adrianna is funny, sensual and very open in her sexuality.  As this book opens Adrianna finds herself in a bit of a situation. This is one of my favorite scenes.

The impediment brought his rage to the surface. Picking up the stone planter at the edge of the patio, he threw it into the glass, his body coming through after it.

“Hunter!” Adriana’s look of relief was all he needed to see.

He squelched his instinct to put down the enemy first. Holding on to his new reality by a thread, he pulled the switchblade from his back pocket and cut the rope binding Adriana’s hands. Then he faced the two men. “You will leave this resort immediately.”

Keeping his eyes on their surprised faces, he felt Adriana stand up behind him. “Do you want to press charges?”

Before she could answer, the man with the whip raised it and brought it down toward him.

Hunter lunged, grabbing the leather coil at the thong and ripped it out of the Dom’s hands. He wrapped the whip around the man’s neck, cutting off his air supply. “Adriana, do you want to press charges?”

The other man pulled at his arm, trying to loosen his hold as the dominant man struggled to breathe. She stood next to him on his left not saying anything. The need to choke the life from the man took over his brain. He tightened the whip, his gut rejoicing at the gurgling sounds coming from the victim in his hands.

Something soft brushed against his shoulder. He stopped tightening at the movement. Adriana was there, a piece of his new reality. He wasn’t allowed to kill.

“No.” Her emotionless word, spoken softly as she shrugged and moved away, broke through his killing haze.

He released the whip and the man crumpled to the floor. Hunter kept his voice even. “You have one hour to vacate.”
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 12863-12876). Kindle Edition.

This begins a series of incidents all pointing to our lovely bartender. All circumstantial and horribly incriminating. It takes a lot to overcome the things that Adriana has but she has always survived and been better for it. There are things she wants now, but can she have them or is she going to be forced to move on.

Then there is Hunter. Strong, silent and so attracted to Adriana. He doesn’t feel worthy to feel alive, to love again. But he does know Adriana is innocent, he just has to prove it.

I think this book has more tension and unease than any other in this series. A lot going on and so much intrigue, plus lots of that hot sex we’ve come to expect. I can’t wait for the next in this series.

At the end of Kidnapped By Her Husbands, a very pregnant Mel has woken up alone after her surgery. Her husbands have been taken by, of all people, her mother. Now she has no choice but to get her memory back, but she has to do it before she confronts her mother. To do this she needs her sixth husband’s help. He is the missing part of her heart he is also the only one who knows why she left her ship Artemis to begin with.

Cooper is a virtual prisoner of his family. A prince, he has been watched constantly since Melissa was taken from the facility. The other husbands don’t trust him, and now Mel needs him to get away and meet her. They need a plan to get her memory back and the rest of her husbands too.

With Cooper’s help she meets up with her Aunt Jayne, her father’s sister and one who can fill in some of the holes in her memories at least until she can get her own back. They also decided on a place for her to get her memory back before going to the Bridge to confront her mother. This is a favorite scene.
“I’m getting in the machine and when I wake up I’m going to know what scared me enough to run. You knew my guys were on The Bridge. You must have people there who still communicate with you.”

She raised a dark eyebrow. “I do. They don’t like what’s going on. Not enough to uprise on Rita, but enough to talk to me.”

“Would they be willing to help me?”

Jayne moved closer to the screen. “In what capacity?”

“I don’t know what decisions I made before but I know what I want now. The guys, all six of them, safe. My daughter protected. I think my father is the one to do that. I think that’s what you want, too. A way to get to your brother. Am I right?”

She did me the courtesy of not pretending I wasn’t right. “Yes.”

“Get yourself together, bring whoever of your staff wants to go, too. Come to the Artemis. We’re hidden behind one of Ochoa’s outlier moons. When I wake up after the machine, I’m not going to be me anymore, or not exactly as I am now. You need to have already put this in motion so I can’t call it off. Be here, ready to put a gun to my head to tell you where my father is.”

Jayne’s eyes were huge. “You’re remarkably smart.”

“I’ve been watching news reports on the vid screen. Why does The Bridge keep popping into the area and then vanishing again? What’s happening with it?”

She shook her head. I’d finally asked her a question she couldn’t answer right off the bat. “Clearly, it’s a technical problem. They don’t really know why. My best guess would be your Wesley had something to do with it before they knocked him out.”

Her words stopped my heart for a second. “Knocked him out?”

“They’re all in cryogenic sleep now. Turned out the five of them on The Bridge were more than Rita was prepared to deal with. Dead guards, escape attempts, systems breaking. She’s getting ready to be all over the Nomad airwaves offering money for you now. Artemis won’t stay hidden forever.”

Focus made my back stiffen. “Saving them and my daughter are my first priorities. This baby is coming soon whether we are ready or not. Cooper won’t like you here ready to threaten me when I wake up. Be prepared for his resistance. There’s a play I have to make for him, too. I’d rather not give my mother nuclear bombs, and that means I’m going to have to speak to my father. Presumably, when I wake up, I’ll know how to do that. The guys won’t want me sacrificing myself and I’m nobody’s martyr. Please believe I’ll do what I have to do.”

“For the first time in your life, Melissa, I do.”

I disconnected the communication and clicked my wrist again. “Cooper,” I knew he’d be able to hear me even if he couldn’t answer. “I’ve got something to do on Ochoa. I’ll be at the memory retrieval machine in three hours. Have it done by then.”

He might have answered me except I cut off communication. If Cooper wasn’t going to like my aunt showing up to help me complete my plan, he was going to dislike what I needed to do next even more. I’d made a lot of mistakes. Huge ones. Big, horrible decisions, some I couldn’t undo. One of them was down on the surface.

She could be saved.
Royce, Rebecca. Rescued By Their Wife (Wings of Artemis Book 2) (Kindle Locations 484-510). Liquid Silver Publishing.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this one. Every time I thought okay, it’s gonna be okay now, well it wasn’t. I loved every single second of this read. From getting to know Cooper, to meeting his sister, to Mel’s Aunt and her witchy mother. Oh and all those sexy as hell husbands who turn the heat up to high!

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Myla is beautiful, a dove with clipped wings, captive by the wolf, a vicious drug lord. One look into her eyes and Kyle could see the pain, the fear…the desperation. Or so it seems. He’s been fooled before by a woman and it cost him everything and everyone he loved. He won’t be fooled again.

Tall, dark, & deadly, these are the stories of the men who run Walker security. Each man is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

The Walker Security series is the continuation of the Tall Dark and Deadly series. Kyle works for the Walker brothers and they are working to take down Michael Alvarez a purveyor of drugs and human trafficking. A key reason for their involvement is the possibility that one of their operative’s (Kara) sister, Myla, may be alive and under his control. Kyle is going in undercover as a bodyguard to someone close to Alvarez.That someone turns out to be Myla.

Myla is scared of Alvarez and of what he would do to her sister Kara if she comes for her. She hasn’t tried to contact Kara since she is presumed dead. Now Alvarez has a plan that will let Kara know in an indirect way that Myla is alive. Myla is a talented designer and he is giving her the chance to design her own line. Of course it will be a money laundering operation but will it also be more.

A favorite scene is after Myla has a phone conversation with Alvarez.

Grinding my teeth, I set the phone on the nightstand, my stupid hand trembling as I do, but I do not let myself sit here, where I will think and destroy myself. I stand up, the towel falling to the floor, the cold air rushing over my skin, and I am naked in so many ways right now that it’s impossible to comprehend. Suddenly, I just need a shirt to put on. I need Kyle’s shirt, and I twist around, noting the suitcase on the other side of the bed, by the living area rushing in that direction. Rolling it away from the couch, I lay it down, and settle on my knees, unzipping it and flipping open the lid, but instead of clothes, I find that arsenal of guns Kyle mentioned.

Inhaling, I reach for one of them, welcoming the cold, steel comfort a weapon will surely deliver. I choose a big one that requires two hands, one worthy of killing Michael Alvarez, the weight blissful in my hands, against my belly.

“Holy Mother of Jesus,” Kyle says from the doorway, setting the cups in his hands on the desk, his eyes wide. “This is one of the most confusing, erotic, disturbing – did I mention erotic? – sights I’ve ever seen.”

Only then do I fully register the fact that I’m holding a gun with my naked breasts on full display, my teeth scraping my bottom lip. “I was looking for a shirt.”

“Understood,” he says. “I always confuse shirts and guns, too. I’ll get you a shirt.” He walks to the closet to the right of the door, disappearing inside.
Deep Under (Tall, Dark and Deadly) (Kindle Locations 2865-2876). Julie Patra Publishing. Kindle Edition.

A lot of frustration on both sides as Kyle tries to gain Myla’s trust while determining if she is loyal to Alvarez. Tense situations sprinkled with humor. With enough twists and turns to have you holding your breath as you turn the pages.

The stunning conclusion to the Bitten Point series.

Over my dead body. But Melanie might need help keeping her boys safe.

Wes is keeping secrets, lots of them, but he doesn’t have a choice. The people he cares about are in danger and he’ll do anything to protect them, but that struggle intensifies when the girl he never stopped loving is drawn into danger.

Can this gator meet the challenge of not only freeing himself from the blackmailing grip of Bittech, but find a way to be with Melanie too?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book is a stunning ending to this series. As much as I hate to see it end.

With the destruction of one Bittech facility, Andrew has moved everyone who survived to a new higher security one. Before he takes up residence there he has one more thing to do, get his wife and children.

Melanie is livid, her only thought is to kill him. She doesn’t love him, she never did, but the shifter she loved broke her heart.

Wes left Melanie because of his bad blood. He didn’t want her tainted by his family’s reputation. Now he is drawn into a battle not only to keep Melanie and her boys safe but to save others as well.

This is a favorite scene after Mel escapes from her husband kind of with Wes’ help and her brother Daryl takes her to their mother’s.

Through the windshield, Melanie could see the aluminum door at the front hanging drunkenly, the thicker wooden one wide open. More terrifying of all was the sight of her mother wailing on the step, a hand held to her head, blood streaking through her fingers.

The hair on Melanie’s body hackled.

“Mama!” No sooner had the car skidded to a stop than both she and Daryl spilled out and ran to their mother. She couldn’t help but smell the lingering trace of something reptilian. Her heart raced a mile a minute, and she couldn’t stop a fluttery panic.

“What happened?” Daryl barked.

“I tried to stop it,” her mother wailed. “But the monster thing batted me aside as if I were nothing. Then he licked me.” A shudder went through her mother as she grimaced. “And I froze. I couldn’t move a muscle as that monster took the bambinos.”

“My boys? He took my boys?” Melanie’s voice pitched as the horror of what happened hit.

“I am so sorry. I couldn’t stop him. The lizard monster came and took them both.”

It took everything Melanie had not to shriek. But she couldn’t help grabbing her hair in two fists and pulling hard. She needed the pain to focus, anything to not think of what might happen to her precious babies.

Daryl knelt before their mother. “This creature, did he fly away with them? Run off? Do you know which way it went? Perhaps I can pick up its trail.”

A shake of her head and their mother explained. “I don’t think he did either. I heard an engine. Someone drove that thing here, and he took the bambinos.” Fresh tears and wails shook her mother’s body, and even though Melanie wanted to shake and curse and scream herself, instead, she wrapped the rotund body in her arms and rocked with her mothers. Tears streamed down her cheeks.

That bastard took my babies.

And she was going to get them back.

She just didn’t know how. No one did.
Gator’s Challenge (Bitten Point Book 4) (Kindle Locations 241-255). Kindle Edition.

Anger is the primary emotion for both Mel and Wes, more so when they find out the plans Andrew and Wes’ Uncle Parker have in store for them and the children.

A nail-biting read with lots of action to keep you turning the pages and scenes meant to melt the panties. A story that shows love, and the strength drawn from it, can indeed conquer all. I definitely got more than a few giggles out of the antics of the twins, and some conversations between Mel and Wes. But I got weepy too, love it when an author makes me cry.

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with hot shifters, cyborgs or aliens. I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at any or all of the sites listed below.

In order to keep close to an alpha cowboy her boss wants protected, Knight agent Tara Lynch draws on her acting skills to play a scared schoolteacher who witnessed the murder of a hitman, and on her restraint to resist falling for the sexy cowboy.

Former SEAL Callahan ‘Rook’ Lawe agrees to help his old commander, but with his hands already full investigating accidents on his training ranch that put his brother in the hospital, his attraction to the beautiful woman is a distraction he doesn’t need.

 

Review Spring Blog - Copy

A little deception can go a long way to making or breaking a relationship. Assigned to help and protect Callahan “Rook” (a new member of the Knight Protection Agency) Tarah tries to keep much of her cover story the truth. She is a Knight operative but after killing a key player (a mobster’s son) she could be a target. So in a weird sense Rook and Tarah are protecting each other only Rook has no idea who she really is.

Rook’s brother Remy operates their training ranch and there have been suspicious incidents happening, one of which left Remy with a broken shoulder. After establishing her cover as a school teacher and Rook’s fiancé with a sizzling kiss, she uses the distraction of kittens to find out more about the accidents and the ranch. Anything else was going to be difficult because Rook slept outside her door. One of my favorite scenes is at breakfast the first morning.

Halfway through breakfast, Rook couldn’t put his finger on it, but something was up with Tarah.
Thirty minutes ago, when he’d returned to her room, he thought he’d heard her talking. When he asked her on their way downstairs, she told him she was on the phone with her brother. He didn’t get the sense she was lying, but he still couldn’t shake the feeling she was hiding something.

“So, Tarah, what grade did you teach?” Rook asked, cutting into a fresh stack of pancakes Burly set in front of him.

It wasn’t lost on him that she’d chosen to sit across from him. Right next to Remy.

She set her fork down and smiled. “Middle school English, so that’s sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.”

“Damn. Middle school in D.C.?” Remy whistled. “You’ve got a pair.”

She laughed. “Yes, except I wear mine on my chest.” Then she slapped a hand over her mouth and blushed.

Burly’s chuckle mixed with his brother’s bark of laughter. But all Rook could do was recall her chest that morning, and how she certainly had a pair of pert nipples he’d wanted to rip out of her dress and cover with his mouth.

She dropped her hand to the table, the pretty silver bracelet on her wrist clanging on contact. “Sorry, that slipped out.”

“You don’t have to apologize.” Burly patted her hand. “It’s been a long time since this house has heard laughter like that.”

She snickered. “The way my tongue runs away with itself, the house is going to be sick of me.”

Burly glanced at him when he replied. “I highly doubt that.”
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 11562-1575).Kindle Edition.

Lots of fun watching Tarah and Rook trying not so very hard to stay unattached. All while trying to figure out who is causing sabotage and accidents on the ranch. These two just sizzle, but when the truth comes out… will they be able to make it.

About the Author Spring Blog

  Donna Michaels   Donna Michaels

It’s all my mother’s fault.

She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues that fed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. I’m a NY Times, USA Today, and Amazon Bestselling Award winng author. Phew, that was a mouthful! Multi-published in e-book and print with several publishers, I certainly have a ton of voices in my head.

I’m happily married to a military man for 28 years. We have four children and several rescued cats. Michael’s been in the Army National Guard since before he graduated. The Guard has been a part of our lives right from the start. It was only natural for the military to spill into my writing. God bless the military and their families. Thank you all for your sacrifices. ♥

You already know my mom inspired my love of reading,but it was my dad who got me hooked on movies. Even now, if I had the time, I could happily go from one movie to another all day long. They are the reason I love mixed genre and why I can’t just stick to just one in my writing, although, as you can tell, I have a soft spot for cowboys and the military.

Well, that’s about it. Thanks for getting to know me a little better. Remember, keep reading to your children. The journey you’re igniting is precious. And the next time you’re at the movies, turn around. I just might be the person sitting behind you. No, not the one throwing popcorn (it’s too expensive to waste). I’m the one already imagining the sequel.

Have a great day and thanks for reading!
