As a SEAL, Jon Rudnick dodged copper and lead without flinching, but just the thought of one tiny gold band around his ring finger sends him into a cold sweat. Love is one thing, but marriage is another. He’s not sure he’s ready for that just yet. . . until a near miss serves as a wake-up call he can’t ignore. Now he’s ready, but his girlfriend Ali has gone from rushing him toward the altar, to running in the opposite direction at full speed. Hell if Jon can figure out why, but he knows one thing. All’s fair in love and war and he’s not going to rest until he makes Ali his again. This time for good.

Summer My Review

I’m not quite sure what I expected when I started reading this one. I know it wasn’t for one of the owners of GAPS to go totally off the grid. When he did I expected the worst and I think everyone else did too. Including Zane his partner and his live-in girlfriend Ali.

While he is off doing something that blows my mind with its danger, Ali finds herself pregnant. She took St John’s Wort which rendered her birth control ineffective. Now faced with Jon gone to who knows where, for who knows how long, she prepares herself to be a single mother. The absolute last thing she expects is for him to propose the minute he gets back. This is a favorite scene.
It only proved what he knew already. No one could predict what could happen or when. He could live to a hundred or he could die tomorrow. It was about time he started really living.

“God, I missed you.” The words were barely out before he crushed his mouth against hers.

Overwhelmed by the need to feel safe and alive, he kissed her hard and thoroughly. The long list of miracles that had brought him home mostly unscathed grew by one more when Ali didn’t push him away.

She sank into his kiss, clinging to him through the jacket he’d never taken the time to remove.

He wanted to get her to the bedroom. Wanted the clothes separating them— his damp ones and her warm ones— gone.

But he wanted something else more.

Breaking the kiss, he blurted out the words that would make her his for the rest of his life. “Marry me.”

She pulled back from him.


“Marry me.” Now that he’d said it once, the words spilled out even easier.

Her eyes narrowed. “Why are you asking me that now?”

“What?” He was too confused to comprehend her frown or the suspicion in her tone. Wasn’t this what she’d wanted?

“Did you come right here or stop somewhere first?”

Further confused by that question, he said, “I stopped at the office.”

Her nostrils flared. She was mad he went to the office?

He continued, trying to diffuse this bomb while blind. “I had to. My truck was parked in the lot. And my house keys were there too. Ali, I don’t know what’s happening here. All I know is I want to marry you.”

“You didn’t before you left.”

“I did. I just—”

“I can’t be here with you right now.” After cutting him off she moved toward the door.

What the fuck had just happened?

OMG the little things he remembers and surprises her with. I laughed and cried a lot in this one. I really need to go back and read the ones I missed.

Thank you Cat for the view of the behind the scenes activity that is trying very hard to keep us safe and free.

Summer My Review

Holy Cow talk about a hold your breath can’t put down book. This one has it all, a mad Alpha, scared siblings and packs, a great Alpha, an Omega and really hot sex.

Troy is sent by his “father” and Alpha to study and plan a takeover of the new pack that has taken up residence in Moonlight. When he fist sees Bel he is surprised that he can’t seem to concentrate on the conversation with her Alpha Derek.

Bel on the other hand can’t seem to stop thinking of all the things she would like him to do to her. As fate would have it he is placed in the cabin next door to her and one thing leads to another and then they get interrupted. This is a favorite scene.
Bel reached for them, seeking to soothe the distress filling the clearing, but she came up empty. She could sense them, could feel the roil of emotions, but it felt like she was encased in amber, separated from her pack by a translucent shield. “What happened?” she asked, although she had a pretty good idea. Tucking her knees up, she curled her arms around them in a protective ball.

Troy roared a sound of incoheincoherent fury and broke away from Kirk, diving to his knees to gather her close against his chest. Exhaustion settled deep inside her limbs, and she turned her face, seeking the warm safety of the curve of his throat. Drawing deep breaths, she used his already-familiar scent to calm her racing mind.

“You projected, Bel,” Derek said, confirming her worst fears. It hadn’t happened for years. Not since she was a teenager struggling to come to terms with her emotional connection to the pack.

“How bad?” she whispered, burrowing nearer to the solid warmth of Troy’s body.

“Depends on your definition of bad,” Rand replied. “If you don’t mind the whole pack knowing you got your world rocked by Mr. Smooth here, then not bad at all.”

The hint of humor in his voice offered a slight balm to the surge of embarrassed horror coursing through her.


“Mrs. Meyer sounded very happy when I ran past their place on the way here,” Kirk muttered. “And Silver punched me in the face.”

Oh. God.

Mrs. Meyer was eighty if she was a day, and the idea of Kirk’s sweet, human mate striking him didn’t bear thinking about.

“I’m so sorry, Kirk. Is she okay?”

The big man barked a laugh.

“She’s fine, just mad because I left our bed when she wanted to go again.”

Humiliation burned through her, and she pressed her face deeper into Troy’s shoulder.

“Belinda. Look at me.” She raised her head, obeying the command of her alpha without hesitation. Derek lowered to one knee, ignoring the man beside her, focusing only on Bel. “Are you all right? Did you flame out?” It was a term they’d come up with when she overexerted her emotional abilities.

“I think so. I feel numb. Tired mostly, and more than a little embarrassed.”
Hunger Moon (Hot Moon Rising #7) (Kindle Locations 550-568). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

This is a series I haven’t yet read so, once again I am hooked and must go back to read the rest. However I notice another by Merryn that preceded this one so I purchased that one.

I hope you have more for this series Merryn, I really, really loved this read.

Summer My Review

This book progresses over several years documenting the tragedies in Kelsey’s life, and the things that gave her strength. I fell in love with Damien from the moment he started bringing Kelsey food while she was healing from a fall. This is one of my favorite scenes and one that started Kelsey thinking more and more about Damien.
Tom ran to the door and began hissing. Kelsey wondered why he had been acting strange lately. Tom had always been a friendly, mild-tempered cat.“What’s the matter with you, boy?” she softly asked while she hopped to the door. “Who is it?” This time, she raised her voice, so the person could hear her from the other side.“Damien,” the voice answered.

What the hell was he doing here? Instinctively, she flung the door open, and instantly, she regretted it. As he filled her doorway, her heartbeat tripled. She had no idea if it was because he looked gorgeous standing there, or because the dangerous aura radiating out of him terrified her.

“Hello, Kelsey,” Damien drawled.

As the chills ran up and down her spine, Kelsey suddenly realized that she was standing in a mere robe. Hugging it tighter around her, she said, “What are you doing here, Damien?”

“I figured you would be hungry. Being that you are injured, I thought I would stop by with some food. Chinese?” He held up the brown bags to show her.

Kelsey frowned and replied, “Are you serious? It’s late. Probably past ten!”

“Twenty after ten to be precise,” Damien said, smirking.

“I’m going to bed now. You can’t come in.” She had to admit that seeing him in his black trench coat, looking dangerous and sexy, messed with her mind.

“You are going to sleep? I am pretty sure you stay up until the wee hours, Kelsey.” Damien’s voice was so soft, it took a few extra seconds for Kelsey to recover.

Swallowing hard, she said, “Well, you wouldn’t really know that about me. As a matter of fact, you don’t know me at all. Just like I don’t know you. And, I don’t like people I don’t know to just stop by whenever they feel like it—especially this time of the night. Thank you for helping me yesterday, but I’m good now. Take care, Damien.”

Closing the door, Kelsey leaned against it, trying to catch her breath. No longer could her leg support her. Kelsey closed her eyes and lowered herself to the floor.

Why was her entire body shaking? What was wrong with her?

After sitting for ten minutes, she finally was able to compose herself enough to think rationally. When she realized he must be gone, she gathered enough strength to stand back up to open the door and peek out. She released a sigh of relief when she didn’t see him. However, she noticed he left the food for her in the hallway. Should she take it? Chinese did sound pretty good right about then.

Without giving herself a chance to change her mind, Kelsey seized the bags and quickly shut the door, her heart pounding. She had no explanation for her irrational behavior, but she latched the deadbolt as well.
Fate’s Cry (Kindle Locations 304-326). Kindle Edition.

The attraction between the two of them was palpable inspite of Tom’s (the cat) dislike of Damien.

A serial killer identity unknown, targeting young women. A friend that thinks he is more. A boss that may want more than she can give all blend to keep us guessing what’s next and who is the killer. A mysterious man with one name, that she can’t stop wanting.

This book sparked my imagination and although I figured out who Damien was early in the book the rest was a twist and turn to a conclusion I never suspected.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series Fate’s Roar. I enjoyed the teaser chapter at the end of this one.

Summer My Review


One of the things I love about the Black Hills Wolves is that every author involved has their own take on it. They have the structure and the primary Characters and they can choose to included them or not. We usually see at least a peak at Drew, Ryker or Gee as well.

In this book we meet park ranger Wyatt who is a wolf and a curious biologist Isabelle who has been tracking a wolf all the way from Georgia. Now we all know “ahem” there are no wolves in the Black Hills. However she is certain the wolf came here. Ordered to keep her from discovering the pack Wyatt arranges for some mishaps to chase her on her way. This is a favorite scene one of the many little things that happen to our unsuspecting doctor.
The ground shook from the force of galloping hooves while limbs snapped and cracked as debris fell from the trees. Many of the lower branches were pulled off in the animals’ haste to get by.

Damn twins.

Drew said to make Isabelle’s stay uncomfortable, not attempt to kill her. He couldn’t imagine how they’d managed to drive the herd through this narrow spot, but he planned to have words with them later.

As soon as the herd had passed and he believed it to be safe, Wyatt leaned back and looked down at the tiny woman in his arms. She hadn’t panicked and, even now, only appeared somewhat shaken. “Are you okay?”

Her eyes were a bit dazed. “I, uh….” She licked her lips. “Yeah. I think so.” The sight of her pink tongue sliding across her lips captivated him. consequences, he slowly lowered his head and touched his mouth to hers. Tasting. Testing.
Your Wild Heart (Black Hills Wolves Book 14) (Kindle Locations 313-321). Decadent Publishing.

This begins a very hot very intense relationship between the two of them. Isabelle is quite stubborn and refuses to be chased away by the unexpected. I loved the verbal sparring between these two.

Lots of laughter, some hold your breath moments and lots of sizzling sex made this read hard to put down.

My Review of Raising Kane: Fevered Hearts #5 By Heather Long

Raising Kane 5

Raising Kane
Fevered Hearts #5
Heather Long


Summer Blurb

When the spirit fever struck a town, a village or an outpost, it left few if any survivors. The white man blamed the Indian saying they used their mojo on them. The Indians blamed the white man for angering the spirits. The survivors knew it didn’t matter. The Fevered were forever changed.

A gift he needs to tame…

Kid feels what the world around him feels, he is a raw, bleeding nerve, and he can’t control the pain anymore. After lashing out at everyone he loves, he agrees to an exile atop Quanto’s mountain to learn to control the power he wields. Desperate to end it, Kid battles with Wyatt the eldest Morning Star—hoping against hope that the man will kill him. He longs only for peace…

A gift she wants to harness…

Evelyn Lang grew up with a territorial judge for a father, and a secret—her father’s Fevered ability passed to her. When he’s killed in broad daylight in a little town in Kansas after freeing a slave, Lang is no longer bound by her father’s oath to never use her ability—now she must train it. She travels across hostile territory in search of the man who trained her father. She longs only for vengeance…

Tempestuous passions, opposing needs, and impulsive decisions divide them…

Conflicting goals put Kid and Evelyn in direct opposition. Her hunger for justice cuts him, but Quanto refuses his requests to train alone. Forced to train together, they must confront their deepest fears if they are ever to achieve their greatest desire….

His pain. Her obsession. Their battle.

Summer My Review

As this family saga continues, Kid travels to the mountain home of Quanto with Wyatt. He really wants Wyatt to kill him to end his suffering, but Wyatt instead helps him to see his inner self and in a strange way a bond of friendship forms. None of these gifts are easy to manage and under the tutelage of Quanto he begins to gain control in a healthier manner than he used previously. As he struggles and starts to make progress, he also feels a need to get away so he saddles up to take a sojourn to a town and maybe find a willing woman. Instead he finds an injured woman, a dead wild cat and a horse from the Flying K ranch. Oh and Wyatt comes in pursuit.

Evelyn has come to the mountain to learn to control her gift, she needs control to get revenge. She needs to find and kill the men who murdered her father. Before giving her an answer as to whether he would help her, Quanto orders her to bathe, and assigns Kid to watch over her. This is one of my favorite scenes.
A splash of water echoed in the chamber. Had she shrugged? Had her breasts lifted out of the steaming water? Were her nipples hard? Would he die from his balls swelling so uncomfortably? “I’m sorry, I think I’m more tired than I thought I was…”

He almost turned at the weariness in her voice. “Do you need help?”

“No, not yet, I don’t think.”

Oh hell, that means she might need me to walk over there and help her get out of the water…

“Okay. You can call me William. I promise I’ll try to answer.”

She laughed, a quick, fierce little sound and as beautiful as she. “You’re humoring me.”

“No ma’am, I just think you should focus on not drowning and not worry so much about my name. It’s just a name.”

Another laugh and even the images of gelding weren’t helping. If she didn’t finish soon and get dressed, he might have to go throw himself in the snow. Or shoot himself in the leg.

“Well, I think William is a fine name.”

It sure as hell sounded fine when she said it. “Thank you, ma’am.”

“You can call me Evelyn, if you like.” She exhaled a long breath and continued before he could respond. “This feels good, but it’s making me sleepy. I’m going to climb out— Wyatt said there were clothes out here.”

Oh. Clothes. He swallowed and glanced to his right to the cupboard. He’d have to pick them out and walk them over to her. Side stepping stiffly, he pulled open the cabinet doors and glanced at the contents. Scarlett’s clothes were at the top as were some dry bathing sheets. He pulled out two of the heavier ones and a couple of shirts, a pair of britches…


His mouth went dry and he grabbed a handful without looking at them.

“Carrying them back to you.” He backed up. It was only five steps from the cabinet to the first pool. The sound of water cascading tortured him, but he held out the toweling sheets first. Her damp fingers brushed his hand as she took them. The caress lit him up.

“Thank you.” Cloth rasped over skin and he stayed right where he was, drilling holes into the walls with his gaze. “Clothing?”

He held it out blindly and she took the stacks. Praying she could manage all of it, he remained in place. More rasping of fabric, and then a tired sigh.


Daring a glance sideways, he was prepared to jerk his gaze away if she hadn’t meant done, done, but she was dressed and looked deliciously bedraggled with her long blond hair hanging damply around her face. Even the fatigue smudging her eyes didn’t diminish her beauty. “Can you walk back? Or would you like me to carry you?” And he honestly didn’t know which answer he preferred to hear.
Long, Heather. Raising Kane (Fevered Hearts #5) (pp. 177-179). . Kindle Edition.

Quanto demands they train together and their protests go unanswered as they undergo the training. Evelyn and Kid do some dancing of their own and I truly enjoyed every minute of Kid’s not pursuit. When Evelyn uses Mariska’s trick causing all of them to sleep deeply so she could follow her own agenda, I knew Kid would follow.

The Kanes and the fevered all contribute in one way or another to this story. Passion flares hotly and new dangerous gifts appear within the ranks of the fevered children. I can’t stop reading this series, each book draws me deeper into the conflicts and the stories of each character.

Explosive Combination by KaLyn Cooper


Explosive Combination
Prequel to Black Swan Series

Summer Blurb

It’s hard to feel the romance when you’re being chased through the jungles of Columbia … but it won’t be for lack of trying!

As they make their way through the rivers, mountains, and jungles, their desire for each other detonates. But Harper reminds Rafe of his murdered fiancée and the shadow world he wants to leave.

Summer My Review

This story starts off with a bang. Under the noses of her ATF team Harper Tambini is taken by Carlos Narváez the head of one of the drug running Cartels. Carlos’ Secundo Rafe is taken by surprise but follows orders to take her to the Narváez compound.

Unknown to Harper, Rafe is CIA and has been undercover for a long time keeping watch on his one time friend. He knows Carlos is becoming more paranoid and using his own product more and more. This scares him especially since he doesn’t know why Harper was taken. He contacts his agency and plans for her extraction and his own.

This is a favorite scene as Rafe wakes Harper after a call with his CIA boss.
Harper stirred. He crept to the bed and bent to shake her shoulder to awaken her.

She grabbed his arm and flipped him onto the bed face down, arms locked behind his back. She held a steak knife to his throat. His legs splayed, and her knee nudged his crotch.

“Harper,” he choked out in English, “I’m CIA. I’m one of the good guys. Let me up.”

She held her position, “You’re very high ranking in this organization to be CIA. How long have you been under cover?” She kept her face close to his and spoke in undertones.

Good. She wasn’t going to immediately blow his cover. “I started at the top. Narváez and I were college roommates. Now can you get off me?”

His heart beat rapidly for what seemed like forever. The cold steel at his throat didn’t quiver. He heard her sigh and the pressure of her leg at his crotch ease. She finally removed the knife from his throat and slid off his back.

I’d hoped someone was inside, but I didn’t think it was you.” She moved quickly away from him and braced herself on her knees, the knife still held in fighting position.

Rafe rolled onto his back and sat up. He rubbed where the blade had pressed, thankful not to feel any blood on his neck. “You’re good. I never saw you steal this from the supper table.” He glanced at the satisfied look on her face.

“Yes, I am good. The hardest part was to find some place under that dress that it wouldn’t imprint. Teh last thing I wanted was Narváez to strip-search me at the supper table.” She shuddered.
Explosive Combination. Locations 970-983.Kindle Edition.

As we know the best plans always go awry so, Rafe and Harper proceed to plan B or is it C through the jungle. A tense action packed story as they work their way through not only the jungle but also the attraction to one another.  Topped off with explosive (pun intended) sex.

Summer My Review

In this the prequel to the Boomers series, we meet our primary characters in an interesting manner. Michael Hunter has a mission. A mission to kill Aurora Graystone. When the time comes this hunter who never, ever misses does miss his target.Rory knows she’s being followed, she plans to corner and capture said stalker. That said, when he shoots at her all bets are off and they end up fighting and well… more, on the rooftop where he is packing up. This is a favorite scene.

“Done?” He touched his lips to her ear, stealing the smallest taste of her flesh. Her tender skin tasted of schnapps and cool malt, both decadent and sweet.


He barely had time to register the word when her head snapped hard to the right, slamming into his nose. Stars spiraled across his vision, dizzying pain dousing the savage need clawing inside his skin. Her palms struck down, breaking his hold and she twisted, her hand closing over his erection, fisting it tight as they landed against the rooftop.

“Now, who are you again?” she asked, the whisper of her words tantalizing him. He could smell the hint of coffee on her breath. For some strange reason, he was glad she’d at least gotten a swallow of the drink she worshipped. He fought the urge of his hips to buck into her grip. She needed only twist and he would be racked with masculine agony.

Despite the inherent danger, he couldn’t ignore the blue-violent eyes searching his or the sweet, voluptuous lips hovering deliciously near his face. The corona of sunlight turned her blue-black hair into liquid velvet. Her body pressed into his, a tender, feather-soft weight composed of sensuous lines, lovingly curved.

He expected a protest, but a tiny slip of her tongue against the hard line of his mouth had him opening fully, meeting her tongue with a strike of his own.
