Hope may prove their most dangerous threat.

Doctor Ilsa Blaine
Codename: Doc
Abilities: Designs programmable bioware, enhanced understanding of brain chemistry
Mission: Research, analyze and troubleshoot the team’s active microchips

On the cutting edge of neuroscience, Ilsa is developing microchips that can be inserted into the brain and deliver information. The applications are endless, but her current goal is just to get dogs to return to their owners should they ‘become lost.’ When her college roommate turns up asking for lunch, she’s hardly prepared for the chaos that ensues or the revelation her chip changed the world, and the lives of five heroes from the future. And now they need her help…

Garrett Fox
Codename: The Viper
Abilities: toxins, poisons and assassination, he can kill with a touch
Mission: Protect Ilsa Blaine

One of five desperate men sent back in time to save the future, Garrett volunteers to be the doctor’s guinea pig as she studies their neuro-chips. It’s not his first time being a lab rat. In close quarters, the unthinkable happens—an attraction that could kill Ilsa. Drawn together by science, and on the fast track to destiny, Ilsa and Garrett must save his team from their chips before they can end them, and maybe Ilsa can prove to Garrett he isn’t toxic to everything he touches…least of all her.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. An alliance with the modern day Halo has given their leader a taste of hope. For these five lonely soldiers, the single emotion may prove their most dangerous threat.

Summer My Review

This book starts off with a bang, both literally and figuratively. Looking for someone to help them with the chips they have implanted, the consensus is that Dr Ilsa Blaine is the best choice. Even better she is a friend of Rory’s. Rory makes a lunch date with her to try to convince her to help them, that’s when all hell breaks loose. This is a favorite scene when Ilsa first sees Garrett during their escape.
Something crashed against the metal door and Ilsa flattened herself against the wall. Rory spun in a half-circle and stared at the door. A furred face appeared in the tempered glass window—a face that wasn’t remotely human. A roar of fury pounded against Ilsa’s ears and she shoved her hand against her mouth to keep the scream at bay. Keen intelligence shimmered in the creature’s eyes and hate surged in it as the beast ignored Rory and glared at Ilsa.

 

“What the fuck are you?” Rory’s murmured question, so obviously not directed at her, kickstarted Ilsa’s brain from fear to analysis.

“Section Ten—this is the no man’s land. We need to get out of here.” R.E.X. Labs experimented in any number of weaponized options, from super soldiers to super technology. But not all of their experiments were successful and some were downright dangerous. Section Ten required clearance on the highest levels—despite the Director’s one time offer to bring her aboard these elite projects, Ilsa had refused.

She was a pacifist at heart. She preferred working with animals.

The creature roared again. “Rory, we need to go.” Ice slithered along her spine. Bile burned her throat.

“Yeah, we’re going.” By mutual consent, they jogged up the last twenty-eight steps, the beast’s roars following them to an impenetrable looking steel door, crisscrossed by sensors.

“We can’t get out this way.” Ilsa sagged against the wall. She could barely catch her breath. Every shallow pant lanced more flame into her already oxygen-starved lungs. Fingers against her wrist, she shuddered at the rapid-fire speed of her pulse. One hundred and fifty beats per minute was too fast. She needed to slow it down. The heart murmur she’d been diagnosed with as a child pinched with every squeeze.

“Back up a step.” Rory pulled her away from the door and pushed her against the other wall. “Head down.”

Wild fear raced through her,  and she ducked obediently. Ozone scorched the air and metal ground on metal. The sound ripped through the silence, halting even the mad pounding of boots and the creature’s roars below. Sunlight blinded her as Rory tugged her back into motion. A figure, bigger than the insane guard below, stared at them through the now melted door. Melted.

A heavy portion of steel flowed like slag, hardening into a shapeless blob against the frame. Jerking her gaze up, she stared into the most potently beautiful green eyes she’d ever seen. They shimmered in the too bright light—as though suffused from the inside out. Her breath clogged in her throat and her heart felt like it had paused mid-beat, only to thump again with more brutal force.

“Give the doctor to me. The captain wants you off the roof.” He extended a leather-clad arm, his fingers stretched expectantly. She would never want to meet this man in a dark alley—or anywhere there wasn’t a lot of light for that matter. Beyond the exquisite beauty of his eyes was a raw tension in his face, both fierce and frightening. Her insides went liquid with the most curious sensation, but a slam from below drove any analysis away. Maybe her mind had snapped under the pressure, but she trusted this man and she took the hand he offered.
The Judas Contact (Kindle Locations 318-342). All Romance eBooks LLC. Kindle Edition.

The concept of her initial research with pets being put to use in humans both appalled and intrigued Ilsa. Eager to study these chips and the people in which they are implanted a lab is set up for her. To everyone’s surprise Garrett agrees to be her test subject. The only problem, he is toxic, just a touch can kill. There is also an undeniable attraction between them and he needs to protect her even from himself.

Action packed with spellbinding anticipation. With lots of romance and sizzle too.  I just couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.

Best way to tame a bad wolf? Be a little wicked yourself…

Carmen finds it hard to trust—then again, her father went mad and had to be put down by her current Alpha. Carmen might hold a position of power within the pack, but part of her always wonders if they could turn on her as quickly as they did him. When she finds a man who she’s pretty sure the current Alpha failed on a lot of levels, she decides to take matters into her own hands and prove Dara isn’t as perfect of an Alpha as everyone thinks.

Seth lost his mate, but he survived. He can’t stand to watch other wolves happily carrying on with their lives and mates after he’d failed to protect his own. Dara allows him his privacy and ensures that he survives, even if there are days when he wishes otherwise. When one headstrong and opinionated she-wolf decides she’s going to end the unique hell of his isolation, Seth has to make a choice…

Kick her butt to the curb or answer the call to claim her. But can he dare claim another mate when he knows he failed once to be the man his mate needed?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Seth is an unusual lone wolf he has a pack but lives away from it. He follows a yearly ritual, one that holds a memory that his Alpha Dara understands. She accepts his behavior, but isn’t pleased he chooses to stay away from his pack.

Carmen is a young not so well meaning she wolf. She thinks Dara is falling down on the job and is trying to find proof of that. She encounters Seth on the night of his ritual and smells pack, but she has never seen him before. Thinking  he holds the evidence she needs that her Alpha has ignored or abandoned him she tracks him down.

What ensues is comical, sweet, sad and extremely sexy. Carmen has questions, questions Seth has no intention of answering. This is one of my favorite scenes.

In seconds, he was shimmying out of his jeans, providing even more of intoxicating view. “Look, probably me showing up naked gave the wrong impression…”

Because no matter how much she and her wolf wanted to crawl up that tempting body, he was still a stranger and she just wasn’t that kind of gal, no matter how much she might want to be right that second.

His snort of laughter called forth an answering grin from her. “Not why I’m stripping but I have to admit I like how you think, nosy wolf.”

She opened her mouth, proud of herself for keeping her gaze north of the beltline, but he interrupted with a single raised finger.

“I’m not going to answer your questions and you’re so tempting, so…”

The crunch of bones and flow of muscles warned her seconds before he started to change. “Aw, hell… Seriously? That’s weak dude.”

But she wasn’t talking to a man anymore. He stood on four feet, positively grinning at her with his toothy wolf mouth.

There’s lot of snark and lots of frustration in this delightful tale. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Chloe Walker did everything right. She went to college, got a good job, dated the right men—everything. Peering at forty from a bit too close, she realizes she can be miserable that she didn’t end up happily married to the handsome prince…or she can count her lucky stars. She tries to go with stars, but the universe seems to have other plans.

Jack Leonard has loved Chloe since they were kids. He’s stood by her through all life’s little messes, been her shoulder to cry on, and figured one day they’d wind up together. He figures he’s just waiting her out. When her life goes swirly, he’s got to convince her that some men are worth risking it all for.

Can Jack make Chloe rethink her birthday wish or will she get just what she asked for when she blows out Forty Candles?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book opens with Chloe’s 39th birthday. Celebrating with friends, she decides to put herself out there more to maybe find the right relationship in the process.

Jack on the other hand has been her best friend since they were children. He wants more, he wants the relationship with her, but she keeps pushing him away. Opening up to his best friend Dillon, he ends up betting on the outcome of his plan to pursue Chloe. His plan to slowly woo her and not become a notch in her bedpost.

I feel for Chloe, it’s hard when you start to doubt your self worth because of dumb arse exes and the years passing by. This is especially true when friends are getting married and are blissfully in love.

Jack has to find a way to win her heart, and stop her self destructiveness. But will it be too little, too late.

A quick and satisfying read. I loved the interaction between all the characters and of course there were smoldering hot scenes as well. I do admit I wanted to smack the two of them a few times but that’s what makes a good story.

Fall Tree Blog - Blurb

He’s single, wicked, and a perfect pretend boyfriend…but exactly who is she fooling?

Murphy DeWitt enjoyed two years touring American consulates in Europe as an assistant to a diplomatic attaché. It was a dream come true, and a hell of a learning experience. A master of languages, she knows how to get her point across. Romance, however, proves to be a tongue twister. Now en-route to Willow Bend for a friend’s wedding —without the make-believe boyfriend she created for her family—she debates how to confess her deception. Luckily, her flight includes a fantastically hot wolf that leaves her breathless and contemplating all kinds of naughty things.

Giovanni Conti thrives on protecting others. As a Centurion for the Seven Hills pack in Italy, it’s his pleasure to serve his Alpha wherever he is needed. Dispatched ahead in preparation for the Alpha pair’s trip to Willow Bend, he has no problem entertaining the sexy wolf he encounters in the airport. The last thing the playboy wolf expects, however, is to find in Murphy the most captivating chase of his life…

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

I love the Wolves of Willow Bend. They captured my heart with the first book and each book gets better and better.

What do you get when you take a Willow Bend Wolf and a Seven Hills Centurion? You get a steamy hot romance filled with laughter and fun.

Murphy DeWitt is returning to Willow Bend after two years of traveling the globe as a diplomatic interpreter. She is looking forward to being home except for one little thing. She told her mother she had a wolf boyfriend to get her to stop pushing on the whole marriage/mating thing. Not that she is against it, after all she was going to be a bridesmaid in her friend Shiloh’s wedding in a couple of days.

Giovanni is traveling to Willow Bend in advance of his Alpha Salvatore and his mate Margo to ensure security for them as they attend her brother Matt’s wedding. When he smells a female wolf at the airport when he passes through security, he is intrigued and manages to place himself in her way.

Murphy literally runs into Giovanni, and thus begins an interesting relationship.

With their flight fortuitously delayed, he convinces Murphy to join him for a meal. However it is a lot more than just a meal he has in mind. In his dominant wolf way he changes her flight to first class, orders up the meal and arranges a shower for her at the First Class Lounge Spa. A shower she and her wolf decide to let him share, but not before she determines it has nothing to do with politics or their packs. Talk about a hot, steamy shower, this one raises the heat to a whole new level.

During their flight Giovanni also books a hotel and rents a car for the two of them to travel from Chicago to Willow Bend. Protective much?

One of my favorite scenes (of which there are many) is during Murphy’s first run since her return to Willow Bend. She has discovered the guest house where Giovanni is staying and is intercepted first by the hunter Collin then by her Alpha, Mason.

“I went to the bar looking for you but Joanie mentioned you needed a run.”

When he released her, she backed off a pace and nodded to him. Cocking her head, she kept her ears focused on him.

“So you ran all the way to where Giovanni is staying, hmm?”

He was here? The longing to go and see him flooded her all over again. Dipping her head, she lowered her gaze in apology. If she shifted she could ask Mason if she could go see him.

“I know you two have been dating, but for now I need the two of you to keep your distance. Salvatore will be here tomorrow and that always makes things a little tense.” He didn’t owe her any explanations. Orders were orders. The desire to see Giovanni warred with her Alpha’s wishes. “If it makes you feel any better, he will be at the wedding. I had a job offer I wanted to discuss with you, if you’re up to it.”

Excitement threaded with confusion punched through her. The wedding was more than twenty four hours away, almost a day and a half. She wanted to sidle and wander in the direction Collin vanished. Maybe it was the guest house. If she accidentally tripped over Giovanni…

“Murphy.” Command halted her in place and she sat, tail tucked. The Alpha’s strength rolled over her and flattened her ears. A low growl rumbled in his throat, and Mason looked away from her toward the night sky. “Another one, dammit.” She had no idea what he was talking about, but decided it was probably for the best. “Damn Italians.” But the last words carried no heat, just exasperation so she flicked her ears forward.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read, no angst, no drama, just pure sexy fun!

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.

The Phoenix (Mel/Nix) has been on the run for more than a century from the demon Levi. He killed her first host in front of Caleb, and then she lost her second host to child birth. Attached to the child she met Amelia. Melanie and Amelia were best friends and when Levi once again found and killed her host, the Phoenix attached herself to Amelia.

She is also running from her mate, Caleb, believing he betrayed her all those years ago. Consciously or unconsciously the Phoenix has been communicating with  Caleb. Her method is through her host Amelia’s dreams, very hot sexy dreams.

Levi has not only sent trackers but also Caleb to find them. Caleb has also figured out that Levi wants all of them, but mostly Mel. The question is why.

This is one of my favorite scenes is a conversation between Mel and Amelia when they run into Caleb.

The same demon from the too-hot-for-words dreams. Heart pounding, she tried to stay calm while the clerk checked her out.

Mel, this is not the time to leave me.

“Um, he’s a hellhound with shapeshifting abilities. He’s also a bounty hunter.

Fuck me. That wasn’t good. Levi sent him, didn’t he? Mel didn’t respond. Mel. What is wrong with you?

“Nothing. Let’s get out of here.

In the year they’d been together, Mel had never lied to her. But that was what the Phoenix just did. Amelia knew it. Or at least Mel was not telling her something, and that was the same thing in Amelia’s book. She bet it had something to do with the erotic dreams.

Gathering her purchases, she darted out the door and Lia Davis ran to her car. They were on the road within moments.

“Spill. What the hell is going on?”

Mel let out a sigh. “That demon is my mate.

Oh, hell no.

“You do realize he is here to either kill us or take us to Levi.”

“There is that.Mel fell silent for a moment. “We could seduce him. With a hellhound on our side, you’d be strong enough to kill Levi and whoever else comes after us.

The Phoenix had gone insane, completely lost it.

“I’m not seducing a demon.”

“We can’t fight him either. Besides, we have been seducing him for the last few months.”

“The dreams?” When the Phoenix didn’t reply, Amelia released a frustrated growl. She already knew the answer. “Damn it, Mel. Why couldn’t your mate be a nice, normal, wealthy human?”

The bird didn’t respond. Whatever. Damn it.

“I’m not on board with this until you explain to me who he is to you.”

Mel blew out a frustrated breath. “I told you, he’s my mate. Now that he has found me…us, he will track us no matter where we go. At least leading him to the farm will be away from human ears and eyes.”

There was a hint of saddens in her tone that made Amelia’s heart ache.

“He broke your heart.”

“More like broke my trust. Although, I’m not sure it was completely his fault.

“I’m so confused.” Amelia gripped the steering wheel tighter. “I’m not seducing him. I’ll talk to him, but I’m not seducing him.”

Now all three of them must come together, as mates, to either win this battle with Levi or die.

A tense battle of wills, hardheaded women and an alpha male with lots of hotness in the form of a sexy demon hellhound changeling.
