Christmas 2015 Blog blurb

Darn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade.

No way was he wearing tinsel in his antlers.

Like heck was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh.

But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.

Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it.

If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games.

As Crystal and Kyle butt heads, they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.

Christmas 2015 Blog Review

Those of you who follow my blog know I love shifter romance. This series by Eve Langlais is one of my absolute favorites.

It’s Christmas in Kodiak Point and I started laughing on the first page! Kyle’s indignation at being asked by his Alpha to pretend to be a reindeer, more specifically Rudolph, was priceless. Another thing right from the beginning that had me cracking up, everything Kyle does he calls a mission.

Now Crystal on the other hand, is far more sensible and is more than a little annoyed at the self-centered Caribou. Unfortunately (or fortunately) her easily scared daughter Gigi takes a liking to Kyle.

This is a favorite scene when Kyle first wins over Gigi.

How could one pair of eyes look so sad? Ack. Kyle almost made the sign of the cross in front of her because surely she had some kind of magic at work because he almost said the most ridiculous thing. He almost told her not worry, that Rudolph would be there.

Never!

“Why don’t you climb out of that pile of hay and come with me? We’ll go find your parents. They’re probably worried.”

She shrank from him.

For some reason, this caused a painful pang in him. She was too young to show such fear. Yet he knew that look. He’d borne it when he was a kid and his father came home in one of his moods. “Oh, sweetie, don’t be scared. I won’t hurt you.”

“But you’re big.”

“Yes I am. And strong.” Hmm, maybe he shouldn’t have pointed that out.

She nodded. “You are, and scary,” she added.

“Me?” He grabbed at his chest in mock horror. “Is this your way of telling me I’m ugly?”

A small giggle escaped her. “No, silly. But handsome doesn’t mean nice. That’s what my mama says.”

“In some cases, probably, but not this time. Why, I’m the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.”

“Malcolm said he was nice too, but he wasn’t. He was mean to my mama, and me.”

Wouldn’t Kyle love to teach this Malcolm a lesson about treating a woman right? “Well, I’m not this Malcolm Malcolm guy, and I can tell you right now, I’m never mean to the ladies.” Even stubborn ones. “And I’ll tell you something else, if that Malcolm dude were to walk in here right now and try anything, I’d totally kick his ass.” Whoops on the language.

Thankfully she didn’t seem to notice. “You’re a knight?”

Almost did he snicker, but she seemed so serious. He held it in. “Knight in tattooed armor, sweetie. So don’t you worry that pretty little head of yours. No one will so much as fart in your direction while I’m around.”

She giggled. “Farts don’t hurt.”

“But they sure stink,” he said with a smile and a moue of distaste.

Apparently it took a bodily function jest for her to decide he was trustworthy. She emerged from her pile of hay, clutching a ragged stuffed animal in a chubby fist.

When he held out his hand, he expected her to clasp it. Instead, she tucked into his reach and lifted her arms.

Despite him not spending much time around children, Kyle recognized the universal gesture for ‘pick me up’. He did, the little girl’s weight feather-light even with her jacket and boots.

“Where to, sweetie?”

“Mama’s working on the parade for Santa.”

“Then let’s go find her.” Maybe he could also get some clues on this Malcolm fellow, who seemed to think it was cool to threaten women. Kyle wanted to speak with the guy—with his fists.

Mission #737: Find this Malcolm dude and teach him a lesson. A Christmas gift to the little angel in his arms.
Langlais, Eve. Caribou’s Gift: A Hero With Antlers and Attitude (Kodiak Point Book 4) (pp. 26-28).Kindle Edition.

Now winning over Gigi was easy compared to winning over her mother. Kyle has a lot of work to do in that area.

A fun read with lots of laughs, some sizzle and a knight with antlers you’re sure to love.

My Review of Freakn’ Out by Eve Langlais

Freakn’ Out
Freakn’ Shifters Book 7
By
Eve Langlais

blurb-fall-cornucopia

He’s broken in body and spirit, but she’s not giving up.

Leave me the hell alone. Is that so freakn’ hard to grasp?

Yeah, Derrick is angry, and bitter, but with good reason. His army buddies should have left him to die instead of dragging him out of the rebel camp–and he meant drag. Shrapnel to his back ensured his legs are useless hunks of meat. Everything below his waist is useless.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, fate just has to kick a wolf when he is down and send him the curvy and luscious Janine. According to his inner beast, she’s his mate. Not happening. There will be no claiming because Derrick isn’t about to saddle anyone with half a man.

Problem is, Janine, with her fiery red hair and tempting curves, won’t leave him the hell alone. She thinks she can fix him. And a part of him, the part that refuses to give up hope, is tempted to let her try.

Can she teach this broken wolf new tricks–including bedroom ones–that will make him howl once again?

review-fall-cornucopia

Derrick is impossible, no therapist has been able to reach him, his wolf is angry and close to the surface and now he has only one last chance before the Council makes a decision that could end his life.

Janine kind of knew what she was getting into when she was assigned to be Derrick’s new therapist. What she didn’t know was that she would be so attracted to him. She wasn’t going to let him get away with hiding himself away, not anymore.

I really loved the interaction between these two, the problems Derrick has are real in so many cases. Janine took everything he threw at her in stride and gave it right back to him with a twist. This scene at the pool is one of my favorites.

On the list of things Derrick shouldn’t do, dragging his new therapist into the water was probably one of them.

It’s her own damned fault.

Telling him she liked the look of his body. A bald-faced lie. Had to be. What woman would find a man whose legs had lost so much muscle mass, and dangled limper than noodles, sexy?

What of the scars scoring his skin? Red lines. Bold spots. Jagged lightning leaving behind ridged skin. Most of his wounds had healed nicely, except for those drawn with silver. Those took much longer to heal, and they crisscrossed his body, telling a story that he couldn’t forget.

And Janine saw them all. Saw all of his imperfections, didn’t recoil from them, called him attractive, and then, to add even more insult, she offered him a helping hand.

She thinks I am weak.

Awoo. He almost howled with the indignity of it. Instead, he didn’t think. He acted. More like yanked on the hand she dared extend.

She surfaced with a screech. “That’s freakn’ cold!”

Treading water beside her, he couldn’t help but feel a faint tug on his lips. Surely not a smile? He clamped his teeth tight together. “It’s refreshing.”

“It’s f-f-reezing,” she managed to stutter through almost blue lips.

Hmmm, perhaps the little human was more fragile than he expected. Too bad. “Next time don’t stare.”

“How about next time you don’t try and drown me?”

“You aren’t in any danger.” At this end of the pool, the water had a depth of just under five feet, and if she stood on tiptoe, she could keep her head above water.

“This is not how you are supposed to treat people,” she chastised. “Especially not those trying to help you.”

“Guess that was wildly inappropriate. Some would even say violent. I guess you’ll have no choice but to ask for reassignment.” Somewhere far away from him so he wouldn’t have to fight the urge to lick her each time he saw her.

She slogged toward the shallow part of the pool and the stairs. Despite the chatter of her teeth, he heard her clearly. “You won’t get rid of me that easily, wolf. Actually, I should thank you for this bonding experience.”

He blinked. Tried to figure out her logic, but couldn’t. “What the fuck are you talking about?” Perhaps the cold had affected her mental acuity?

“Part of building a rapport with your therapist is sharing experiences. Mind you, I think my teachers meant more of you sharing your past with me so we could work through it, but if you ask me, sharing a polar dip can also work. Just so long as you don’t expect me to share my ice cream sundaes. Some things are best savored alone.”

“Your logic is whacked.”

“Maybe. And you’re also not as crazy as you want people to think.”
Langlais, Eve. Freakn’ Out (Freakn’ Shifters Book 7) (Kindle Locations 464-485). New York Times Bestselling Author. Kindle Edition.

And it just gets better from here. So many problems and so many attempted solutions, including a messed up ex boyfriend who won’t leave Janine alone. I really hate men like that.

I did a bit of crying in this one, the way they both kept denying what their hearts and instincts were telling them, damn. I couldn’t put the book down I really needed a happy ending that I couldn’t determine how would happen.

The stunning conclusion to the Bitten Point series.

Once upon a time a girl loved a boy, but married another man. What a mistake, especially since that man has been using her as part of his sick plot to experiment on shifters. And he’s got a plan to use their sons.

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.
