Special Agent in Charge Seraphine Thomas lives for her job at the FBI. One of the youngest female agents with her own team, she thrives in undercover work to make the city she loves safer. But Sera’s on-track life is thrown into chaos when she’s attacked during a bust gone bad and is left figuring out what it means to be a werewolf.

Right away, she learns that she’s more powerful and able to do things that she shouldn’t be able to do so quickly after her transition. The rules of her old life don’t seem to apply to much now that she’s a shifter, and knowing who she can trust is even more complicated.

When she’s transferred to a special branch of the FBI made up of paranormals policing others of their kind and given a promotion, things start looking up—until her abnormal level of power creates a list of enemies for her before she’s even learned who her allies are.

Winter Blog Review

Some interesting world building for this series. The shifters are out but separated. Humans are afraid so don’t interact with them. They have their own schools and even the FBI has it’s own shifter division. Although said division leaves much to be desired.

FBI Agent Seraphine Thomas encounters a shifter in the process of a takedown. As is protocol she is taken to the shifter hospital and watched for signs of the change.

Unfortunately for her, the signs are there and she is transferred to the shifter division of the FBI even as she learns the control necessary to stay alive.

She’s angry and even more so when she realizes that the division she’s just been put in charge of has no training, aren’t disciplined and sure don’t follow any protocol.

As she is adjusting to her new life, the Alpha of the wolves decides she needs to be in his pack and mated.

I took a deep breath and exhaled, rubbing my temples. My head was starting to hurt from putting up with the ridiculous behaviors of this pack.

“Enough of this!” Joseph yelled at me. “Do you accept his challenge or submit to his dominance?”

“Well no fucking way am I letting him touch me,” I answered. “And if I don’t accept his challenge on the basis of not being pack, you’re going to hunt me down and kill me.”

The Alpha wasn’t stupid enough to say anything at that point. I couldn’t charge him with threatening a federal agent if he didn’t say it. His smile, however, said it all. I was backed into a corner and he knew it.

“What are the rules to the challenge, you chickenshit son-of-a-bitch?” I asked.

“The one accepting the challenge chooses the form.” He grinned evilly. “And they fight until one party cannot fight anymore. It is not a fight to the death.”

“Fine, I accept your challenge, Tony,” I replied, not looking at him. “But know this, if I’m a member of the pack, there will be no breaking of human laws. That means this shit of fighting females into submission stops, or I will have anyone who does it arrested and brought up on charges. Are we clear, Joseph?”

“If any of the females of the pack actually have issue with it, fine,” he agreed, looking like the cat that ate the canary. I was pretty sure if any female said anything against the practice, their ass would be grass.

“Human form.” I took off my jacket, then holster. “But if I shift, I’m assuming you can shift accordingly?”

“Yes,” Tony agreed, pulling his sweatshirt off over his head. Then I had an idea.

“If just my hands shift, can you do the same?” I questioned. “It doesn’t seem fair if just my hands shift in the heat of the moment and you fully shift into a wolf or third form.”

“You can’t just shift your hands.” Tony sneered at me. “That’s not possible.”

“Oh, but it is, Tony. Maybe you should be more careful who you challenge from now on.” I gave him a smirk. Let him stew as to whether I really could or not. “Just answer the question.”

“No, if your hands shift and I cannot shift just my hands, I fight in human form until you change into a form I can as well.”

“Oh goodie, this is going to be fun then,” I goaded, rolling my neck and loosening up. Tony was about my size and built, but I’d had years upon years of martial arts and FBI training. I was pretty sure he was used to picking on people who didn’t have that or relying on his gained strength from being a lycanthrope.

“It wouldn’t be fair if you changed your hands when I can’t.” He started coming towards me, not strutting so confidently. His voice was strong when he said it, but I saw the fear in his eyes.

“Too bad, so sad,” I taunted as we started to circle one another, the rest of the pack backing away from us to give us enough room to fight. I was intentionally trying to piss him off. People who fought with anger were sloppy, making them much easier to take down. “Again,maybe you should have thought of that before you challenged me. You want to yield?”

“Never,” he growled, his body shaking with anger.

“If he shifts while you’re in human form, he automatically forfeits,” I heard someone shout off from the side. I’d have to remember to thank them later for that.

“I like how feisty you are,” Tony snarled. Then his tone softened and he wiggled his eyebrows at me. “Makes it more fun in bed.”

“We just said there would be no more of that, dipshit,” I reminded him.

“Only if the female is dumb enough to say they have a problem with it.”

“Hello! I’m the one who said she had a problem with it. You really aren’t that bright, are you, Tony?” That seemed to be what was needed to set him off.
Flynn, Erin R. Accidentally Wolf (Seraphine Thomas Book 1) (pp. 104-107). Supernatural Script Inc. Kindle Edition.

Now this was just the first successful challenge for Sera. I don’t like the Alpha, Joseph Enders and would really like Sera to take him down. Of course that’s just wishful thinking on my part.

Plenty of suspense as they have a serial killer on the loose. Many arguments over just who’s in charge of the investigation.

Change is already happening for the better, but it will take time before things run as all the human divisions do.

Aside from the investigation, there are many interesting traits that Sera starts to exhibit and unusual albeit hot ones at that.

I love the shifter FBI crew and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

My Review of Broken SEAL – Sleeper SEALs Book 10 by Geri Foster


The Sleeper SEALs, are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil.

Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Garrett Mann is burned out. Eight years as a Navy SEAL can do that to a man – especially when he’s been on one too many missions where he has lost too many of his buddies. At thirty-five, he has been fortunate not to be the next Navy SEAL with his name on the wall. Still, he can’t refuse a former commander who enlists him for one last assignment on a secret project.

Doctor Haley Kingston skills will keep her alive, but only one man can save her after she is kidnapped from the hospital where she is working. Haley’s code of ethics as a doctor leaves her little choice but to help the injured leader of a terrorist group. Unfortunately, those ethics won’t be able to save her, or thousands of others, should the terrorist leader live.

Haley will have to trust the last man on earth that she wants to see – the one that broke her heart. Garrett has his own problems. He will have to face his worse nightmares – see the one he loves in danger and realize that his dog tags may be the next ones given to her. Garrett will be pitted against foes determined to stop him at any cost. Can he save the woman he has always been afraid to love before she is executed? Or will his nightmares come true, and this mission will turn out to be his last?

Winter Blog Review

I have to say each and every book in this series has captivated me from the very first page. This one is no exception.

Garrett is charged with finding and rescuing Dr. Haley Kingston, his ex. She’s been taken by terrorists to provide medical care to their severely wounded leader.

Now there are many reasons why he shouldn’t take this on, but the important reason he should is because he’s the best one for the job.

We learn a lot in the first few chapters of this book, a botched bombing at the airport, the injured terrorist, the kidnapped doctor, a murdered witness and the clearly out of the loop FBI.

The agents in charge of this case join forces with Garrett and with the help of his Falcon connections are able to find and secure Haley.

This is a favorite scene that occurs shortly after her rescue.

“Let’s go inside and see if we can’t find you something to snack on until we get on the other side of Baltimore, closer to D.C.”

He exited the car, went around to her side, and opened the door. Always the gentleman. She smiled and mumbled her thanks. Inside, they drew little attention from the other shoppers as they went about their business. She wandered down a few aisles before grabbing a candy bar then moving to the cooler on the back wall.

He had two bottles of water waiting for her. Garrett didn’t shop. When they were in a store or restaurant his eyes constantly surveilled their surroundings until he felt they were safe. She knew he always carried a gun, but she’d never seen him this intense.

“Is that all you want?” she asked, worried that he hadn’t stopped looking for her long enough to eat or drink.

“Yes, I’ll grab something later.”

They cashed out and shoved open the store’s door, he instantly hooked her arm and pulled her back inside.

A white van sat in the back of the parking lot.

Had they been followed?

“What is it?” She moved closer to him and saw the van. “Is that them? How did they know we would come here?”

“I don’t know. They might have had an outside lookout.” He led her away from the door. “I’m not sure it’s El Hashem’s men. It could be someone else. Let’s wait and see what happens.”

She clutched his arm. “Garrett, I can’t go back there. If they get their hands on me, they’ll kill me.”

“I won’t let that happen. You’re safe with me.”

“I know that. I’m petrified they were able to follow us. What if they crash inside and innocent people get hurt?”

“Let’s not borrow trouble.” He casually put his arm around her shoulder and moved back toward the coolers. Since they’d paid for their items, he had a plastic bag in his hand. “Stay close and if anything happens there is an exit out the back. Run out and find a place to hide.”

He took out his phone and called Frank. “I have Haley. With ` Harrington and Grey’s help, we were able to get her safely out of the house. We’re about five miles away but it looks like they might have followed us.”

She stood close enough to hear their conversation.

“Where are you?” Garrett’s boss demanded.

“At a convenience store at the corner of Jackson and Parkland.”

“Okay. I’ll have Grey and Harrington turn around and head in your direction. They aren’t far away. Whatever you do, Garrett, don’t let them take her again.”

He glanced down at her and pulled her against his hard body. For the first time since she’d been abducted, she felt safe.

“I’ll make sure of that. She’s not going anywhere.”
Geri Foster. Broken SEAL: Book Ten in the Sleeper SEALs Series (Kindle Locations 736-760).

Thus begins a dangerous game of cat and mouse, as Garrett endeavors to keep her away from the terrorists.

It seems every time they turn around the bad guys are there, Garrett needs to get her some where safe so he and the others can figure out what the terrorists true plan is.

Plenty of twists and turns as they race to win this deadly game.

Scary, realistic, frustrating and action packed.

I have decided I need to read Geri’s Falcon series to get to know some of the players in this one better.

Winter Blog Blurb

As a Seer, Tabitha has always known the day would come when she’d have to face her destiny and succumb to her future mate, as only then would her powers fall fully under her command. Tradition dictates that Tabitha run, forcing her intended to prove his worth—and his desire. But it is the discovery that Tabitha is destined for two mates, creating a bond of three—unheard of among her people—that sends her running faster than she’d ever expected.

Gage and Lancaster have been chasing Tabitha for over a decade. Though sharing goes against their basest instincts, the primal urge to find and seduce Tabitha overrides any desire to fight between themselves. As Gage and Lancaster close in, Tabitha must face the truth—though her people may scorn a bond of three, there’s nothing on earth strong enough to destroy the chemistry and soul-deep longing Tabitha feels when she finally stands her ground and faces her men.

Winter Blog Review

This book is quite the concept. Female seers having to run at the time of mating, and only the male hunters destined for them are able to catch them.

In Tabitha’s case she has been running and avoiding the hunters she is sure are her mates for ten years. They aren’t as patient this time around and apparently have formed an alliance.

This is a favorite scene when she trips their trap.

The whish of sound warned her, but not in enough time for her to dodge the net that snared her feet from the ground and whipped her into the air. The breath pushed out of her wheezing lungs and she gripped at the sides of the net, seeking some kind of stability as the whole thing waved back and forth between the trees.

A laugh sounded far below, and she craned her neck to try to see them in the dark. “Hey, Tabitha. You ran into a trap.”

She recognized Gage’s voice, even if she couldn’t see him lurking in the shadows. “Yeah, I noticed that. Don’t suppose you’d be a pal and cut me down?”

“Oh, don’t worry. We’ll let you down.” His amused tone confirmed both her visions and her supposition. The men were working together to catch her.

“We?” She asked the question aloud, as if she didn’t know Lancaster closed in on the clearing even as they spoke.

While Lancaster smelled of brandy and wicked pleasures best saved for the cover of night, the scent of Gage teased at her nostrils. As crisp as the white of his hair, Gage smelled of mint and the cold breath of frost from a snowy morning. The combination of the two males, both so obviously ready to mate based on the heady fragrance in the wind, left her a little dizzy and almost drunk on repressed passions.

“You knew we’d come for you.” His tone was a jagged shard of vocal power, meant to ready her body for his claiming. It took her a moment to scrape enough logic together past the shivers the sound caused on her skin to discern his meaning. When she did, her lips curled. Apparently, Gage wasn’t in the mood to play coy.

“Did it seriously take two of you to catch me?” Just because he was shoving power around like he had it to spare didn’t mean she wasn’t in the mood to play verbal banter.

“You knew it would be us. And since we both won you…” He let the sentence dangle and her nipples hardened in reaction. With one hand, she rubbed across them, hoping to lower her reaction and instead amplified her own need. Technically, since they’d both caught her, they could share her.

Men of their kind weren’t willing to share a mate, none she’d ever known of in all her travels. Too possessive, too dominant…they didn’t want someone else to touch their mate, certainly not for the remainder of their whole lives. Mates were for a lifetime and their lifetimes were longer than most creatures.

The idea of two men, though, had long fascinated Tabitha, even if it was taboo. She’d seen mortals in such relationships and something about the idea of being sandwiched between two men, their scents twined and both determined to please her caused a forbidden thrill. Not that she’d admit it. They’d have much power over her already as mate. No sense giving them big heads on top of it. “You have to admit, Gage, it’s pretty badass that it took two boys to take down one girl.”

“He doesn’t have to admit anything.” The rumble of sound echoed through the trees, laced with power and vibrating through his barrel of a chest. Still unable to see them, Tabitha didn’t have a problem imagining Lancaster below, speaking in his deep bass up at her. Huge shoulders, giant hands and a voice like a foghorn, Lancaster was as big as he was dark. Dark skin, dark hair and chocolate brown eyes—many other women wished for him to claim them. She’d seen her friends watching him, whispering, but he’d stayed as unclaimed as Tabitha as years rolled by.

This book heats up to sizzling from here on out. Even as Tabitha has visions that leave questions about the future.

Be sure to hydrate as this book will have you panting and in need of a cold shower or a romp with your significant other.

I can’t wait for the next book to see how this tale evolves.

New Series! Training Sasha – Club Zodiac Book 1 By Becca Jameson

Zodiac Club Book 1

Winter Blog Blurb

His friend’s little sister…

Sasha Easton has had her eye on Lincoln Walsh—the owner of Club Zodiac—for five years. Unfortunately, he does nothing but scowl at her and reject her every shy advance.

She’s not right for him…

Lincoln doesn’t have a choice but to discourage Sasha because the truth is that he’s a sadist. And Sasha is no masochist. No matter how much he might want her in his bed, he can’t change the type of Dom he is.

She’s not as innocent as he thinks…

Determined to get Lincoln to see her as more than his business partner’s little sister, Sasha delivers an ultimatum—let her join Club Zodiac or she’ll explore her submission elsewhere.

Can he train her and let her go?

Watching the only woman he’s ever wanted play with another Dom is more than Lincoln can bear, so he finds himself agreeing to train her himself. After all, he’s confident if he pushes her hard enough, he can protect her from the lifestyle and himself from admitting the truth about his feelings.

Winter Blog Review

When Becca Jameson takes you on a journey to submission, she does it with detail. Stunning detail.

Sasha has known about the BDSM lifestyle for a very long time. When her parents died, her brother Rowen had her spending time in the offices above the club while he worked. She’s also known she is a submissive for a very long time. The problem, her submission is reserved for only one man.

Lincoln steps up when Sasha carries out her ultimatum to go to another club. He tells volunteers to go to the Club to keep an eye on her, protect her if you will.

This is a favorite scene when Lincoln kind of comes to her rescue.

The bottom line was he was selfish. He could not have her for himself, and he couldn’t bear the idea of watching her submit to another Dom, so he needed her to get this idea out of her head and move on to live a nice vanilla life.

Admittedly, his thoughts confused him. Visions of Sasha were unlike any other images he had for other women. They made no sense. They boggled his mind. He’d pushed them aside. Every time. For years.

He squeezed his eyes closed and forced himself back into the moment, stroking his hand over the soft skin of her arm while holding her lower back to keep her from slipping out of his grasp.

“Sasha?” he whispered as he smoothed his hand up to her shoulder and out from under the blanket to cup her face. “Look at me, sweetheart.” Sweetheart? Jesus.

She shook her head, burrowing tighter against him. “I’m so stupid,” she muttered. “What was I thinking?”

“You were thinking you wanted to see what all the hype was about. It’s natural. You were curious.” He nudged her chin again, but she didn’t budge. “You were also lucky. If I hadn’t been here, you would really be in a bind right now.”

That wasn’t necessarily true. Master Colin could have handled things. He was a seasoned Master. He would have stopped the scene immediately and been sitting where Lincoln was right now.

Lincoln gritted his teeth at the idea of Colin holding Sasha or even touching her skin. It had been hard enough to watch the man stroke her arms and shoulder. Lincoln had nearly slammed a fist into the wall when Colin had lifted her skirt, exposing the bottom swell of her cheeks.

Sasha shuddered, her fingers finding his T-shirt and fisting the cotton again. “You knew I was going to be here.”

He could barely hear her. “Yes.”

She groaned, lifting her face finally. “Rowen’s going to kill me when he hears about this.”

He shook his head, meeting her gaze. “No, he isn’t. He won’t even know.”

She lifted her brows.

“I mean, he knows you’re here, but he doesn’t have to find out the details.” He wanted to wipe that frightened look from her face. He wanted to kiss her forehead. Hell, he focused on her full pink lips and considered kissing her right on the mouth.

Lord, Lincoln. Get a fucking grip.

She calmed slightly, swallowing. Her face was streaked with tears.

Lincoln lifted his hand and wiped them away with the pad of his thumb. He needed to administer aftercare like he would with any sub. “Talk to me about what happened in there, sweetheart.” Jesus, fuck, Lincoln, stop using that endearment.
Becca Jameson. Training Sasha (Kindle Locations 623-644). Becca Jameson.

Now things get pretty intense, and Lincoln is very hard on Sasha. His motive is only to get her to forget the lifestyle.

I could almost feel Lincoln’s looks, his words, actions, and frustrations.

The Dominant fighting his own needs for the good of the sub and ultimately himself.

Sasha is determined and sure of her submission. The only people who can’t seem to see it are the people who matter the most, Lincoln and her brother.

Sexy, hot, and tearful at times. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the next book.

My Review of Loving Them – Wings of Artemis Book 5 by Rebecca Royce


Loving Them
Wings Of Artemis Book 5

Saved from a life of suffering, Paloma Delacroix is determined to make the best life possible for herself, and for the four men she loves. Loving them is a challenge she never dreamed she’d be up for and one she refuses to fail. Before they can kickstart the life they all dream of, Thomas, Clay, Keith and Quinn McQueen will take Paloma back to Mars Station. They have the whole of the Sandler armada to defeat.

With the help of family, friends, and lost allies, they just might make it work…if they can survive their wedding day.

Content warning: Reverse Harem. Intense.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

With the release of Dark Demise, it dawned on me that I hadn’t reviewed the previous two Wings of Artemis books. So I thought I’d catch up before I review the latest.

After the sisterhood where Paloma had been exiled is destroyed she finds her way to Quinn and his brothers. They aren’t going to be staying there much longer, they needed to get to Mars Station and plot the takedown of their father.

Melissa welcomes Paloma back to the Station and the men start their planning.

Paloma wants a wedding and that is part of the plan, one that isn’t stopped even when a bomb goes off inside the station.

This is a favorite scene after Paloma gets out of the med machine.

The few times I had imagined getting married, a dream I’d thought ended when my parents banished me to the Sisterhood, it had never been in a bloody mess of clothing having just gotten out of a medical machine. But when it came down to it, I didn’t care a bit what I looked like. Or that a man who had just finished using the word “honeys” to refer to former lovers was actually performing the ceremony.

I’d also not imagined we could laugh so much through the ceremony.

“And do you, Paloma, take these four men—with all their many flaws and strengths—to be with you from now and always?”

Now and Always. Those were huge statements. I hadn’t known them all that long. And yet, from the moment Clay had appeared at the Sisterhood, it had felt as though everything moved toward this. Quinn cracked up, rubbing his nose. “Thanks for saying ‘flaws’ first, Ari.”

“Quinn.” Ari’s eyes were filled with amusement. “This is a sacred moment. We are waiting for Paloma to answer. Do you?”

I grinned at him and then Tommy. Then Clay. Keith and then Quinn.

“I feel like everything that has happened to me in my life has happened so I could be led to you. So, yes, with all your flaws and strengths, I will marry the four of you. For now and always. Just as I hope you’ll accept all of mine, of which there are many.”

Rings were exchanged. I didn’t know where they’d gotten them—since they had thoughtfully bought four for me to give to them as well—but they were beautiful. My ring had four gemstones in it. Red, black, blue, and green gems adorned the silver band that I would wear forever on my left hand. Theirs were all the same with a capital letter P engraved into the simple silver they would also never take off.

Now and Always…

Ari said some more things, but I had lost sense of the event transpiring. There was just one world, and only Tommy, Clay, Keith, Quinn, and I lived in it. I was their wife.
Royce, Rebecca. Loving Them (Wings of Artemis Book 5) (Kindle Locations 860-877). After Glows Publishing. Kindle Edition.

There are plenty of things to overcome, one of which is actually being a Sandler. Paloma finds she is up to the challenge even as her husbands face revelation after revelation about their parents.

A fast paced read, with suspense, revenge, laughter, tears and plenty of heat!

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Gertrude ‘Trudi’ and her friend Veronica, run a TV news magazine. They are good at what they do and always check the facts. It’s one of those investigations into the facts that now has her in danger.

This is a favorite scene when things go BOOM!

Trudi pivoted and headed for the door. She fished her keys out of her pocket as she walked. Interestingly, all the guys who’d tried to make eye contact with her when she came in glanced right past her as she made her way to the exit. The source of their swift changing attention could only be one person.

Flint confirmed her suspicion when he grabbed the door a beat ahead of her, then opened it to the street and stepped out. Instead of just holding the door open, he blocked it for a moment.

“Why are you being so damn weird?” The bar wasn’t that far from their offices. If she’d realized she had to go back so soon, she wouldn’t have driven over. The lot was tucked off the street on the other side of the stone building. Ascending the steps, she found Flint constantly in her way—a lot like a certain walking carpet in one of her favorite movies.

“I told you, Ned said you were in trouble.” The laconic response held none of her ire toward her brother. “Where you go, I go. You can handle that, right?”

The challenge in his words stiffened her spine. “Of course I can handle it, I just don’t need to. I’m not in trouble. Ned’s being a jerk, so go back to whatever…it is you do.” Huh, for a moment, she was at a loss. She really had no idea what he did with his life. After his rather abrupt change of heart, she hadn’t heard from him again.

Ned only mentioned him rarely, and it actually surprised her that they were still friends. Then again, Ned has his life and she had hers.

Shaking her head, she sliced her hand through the air in a cutting motion as she stopped in the alley between the buildings leading to the lot. “How did you know to find me at the bar?” That hadn’t been her actual question, but it just occurred to her. He’d walked in only minutes after she had.

“I traced your phone. If you have to go back to the office, I’ll give you a ride. I can bunk on the sofa in your office—or on the floor. I can stay out of the way and be there to look after you.” He almost made it sound like he was doing her a favor. Flint had a way of cajoling people into doing exactly what he wanted and making them think it was their idea all along.

“You tracked my phone.” She fixed on that nugget of information. “That’s illegal.”

“Okay, I can use a chair, too.” He grinned, the tempting curvature of his sexy mouth a reminder of all the times they’d made out in her car when she’d driven to the base to visit him.

“You can sleep on a park bench for all I care.” Liar. “I have a car. I have a job. I have a life. I don’t know why Ned thought this would be a fun prank, but I don’t have time for whatever this is. I haven’t seen or spoken to you in years, Flint. Let’s double that time for our next little tête-à-tête.”

Shaking her head, she marched away with Flint right at her back. Dammit, he’d always been thick, but this went beyond dense. What the hell was Ned playing at? She hit the unlock button on her key fob when she halfway across the lot.

A hot wave hit her, and knocked her backward. Some part of her mind recognized she slammed into Flint, and that he caught her. Then he rolled her to the ground, and he was above her as the sky turned fiery bright. There was a wicked slam of metal against concrete, and every car alarm in the lot began to scream.

It was the longest moment of her life, boxed in by Flint’s powerful body. The car alarms added a particular staccato to the pounding in her head. He stood, and pulled her to her feet in one smooth motion. Her beloved jeep was in flames—what was left of it, and the rest of it was scattered in pieces.

“About that ride…” Flint said, one arm around her shoulders. For once, she had no quick retort. Nor did she shake off the strength he’d wrapped her up in.

Someone blew up her jeep.

That someone really needed their ass kicked.
Heather Long. ARC Guarding-Gertrude (Kindle Locations 266-296). Kindle Edition.

Now it takes more than a little coercion on Flint and Ronnie’s part for Trudi to agree to get out of town. She fumes, but doesn’t continue to argue as proof of the danger reveals itself.

I loved the references to Supernatural and it was great seeing Tex and Angel. Cannon is a pistol, and I really hope we get to see more of him.

Plenty of hold your breath action, tear causing revelations, giggles and smoldering love combine to make this a page turning read.

Doctor Haley Kingston skills will keep her alive, but only one man can save her after she is kidnapped from the hospital where she is working.

He will have to face his worse nightmares – see the one he loves in danger and realize that his dog tags may be the next ones given to her.
