Amanda Kincaid

Codename: Corkscrew
Abilities: nuclear fission and fusion, absorbs energy and fires beams of radiated heat
Mission: recovery of lost memories and sanity

Kidnapped and experimented on by R.E.X. labs, Amanda’s memories are foggy. She can’t recognize friend from foe and she strikes out with everything she has. Only one man penetrates the storms surging in her mind, a soothing stranger with hypnotic eyes…

Simon Masters

Codename: Soothsayer
Abilities: telepath
Mission: save Corkscrew or terminate her

Cautious, methodical Simon has always been careful to keep his innermost self, contained. Simon must confront his fears—and his deepest secrets—to help the powerful mutant rein in her abilities in.

With new enemies closing in and dark revelations unfolding, the Boomers face their greatest challenge yet and the deeper into her psyche Simon pushes, the more her madness threatens them all…

Winning never felt so much like losing. The team has recovered Corkscrew, but she is lost to insanity. Simon, the most cautious of them all, must risk everything to bring her back from the brink, but losing this gambit could cost them Simon as well.

Amanda has a lot of anger and power she cannot control right now. Even after being rescued she doesn’t know who is friend and who is foe. Only Rory can settle her.

With the team out she wakens, causing much damage. Alone with Ilsa, Simon has to make a decision. After he knocks her out and cleans the mess he waits for the team to return before doing what he knows has to be done.

“We’ve attempted to wake you up, but you panic and react. You almost blew up the medlab a little while ago. Ilsa tried to keep you in a medically induced coma, but that doesn’t appear to be an option with your metabolism. Waking you has some inherent dangers, and we don’t know the full impact of the mental impairments. I can help you wake up and buffet you—”

“How?” She dug her nails into her palms.

“Telepathy is just a label for what I can do. Are you familiar with any types of psionics?”

“No.” She shook her head. “I am still not convinced you’re not some delusion or trick being played on me by my captors.” Fear coalesced in her gut. Images flashed through her mind. Men in scrubs and face masks looming over her. A drilling noise. The smell of smoke. Bright lights over her head. She ran her fingers through her hair, searching for— what?

“Unfortunately, I can offer you no other proof than waking you up. But, if I do that, you have to fight to stay cognizant of what is happening, where you are, and not just lash out. There are others in the house— others you can gravely injure, not to mention yourself.”

Amanda licked her lips. “And if I say no?”

“Then you will leave me with few alternatives. You are very dangerous in your current state, and it will break Rory’s heart if you die.”

Her heart thudded against her ribs, a painful reminder. “I don’t know if I can.”

“Trust me. I won’t let you fall.” How compelling was this man, that she wanted to believe him even if she didn’t know him. That alien-familiar sensation tugged at her insides. “Amanda, it’s very simple.” He rose to his feet in one graceful surge and extended his hand to her. “Live or die. Your choice.”

She stared at his hand.

“What the hell…” Her fingers glided across his palm, and he closed his hand around hers. Electricity surged through her, and the shattered landscape clicked together like some mad game of Tetris, solidifying around her. The stars faded, the sky turned blue, and grass filled in all the gaping holes between the crumbling rocks. They floated upwards and she sat up abruptly. The cold air tasted of ozone and frost and burned her lungs.

Simon sat next to her, holding her hands. His blue eyes opened. He looked a hell of a lot better in person than in her head. A chiseled jaw, a hint of a dimple and the blond hair was like pale flax, perfect against his warmer skin. The hospital room wasn’t familiar, but it seemed normal if one ignored the scorch marks on the walls and the buckled and twisted door frame. Sitting up slowly, she looked down at their joined hands and her too skinny wrists. Instead of the skimpy dress, she wore an open backed hospital gown. Her tan was gone from her legs— all faded and pale. She curled her knees and pulled her legs closer.

God, she needed to shave them.

Swallowing took effort, like she couldn’t quite remember how to tell her muscles to do it.

“Hello there.” The warm-whiskey-on-a-cold-winter’s-night voice tingled through her. Delicate flutters shivered over her skin.

Moistening her lips, she took a deep breath. “Applesauce.”

Her eyes widened. Okay, now I’m freaking out.

With Simon in her head, Amanda can be awake and in control. Without him not so much, he also needs to translate for her since her spoken words aren’t matching her thoughts. Fortunately she gets comfortable with him there.

They still need to find Ronan, and a meeting is called so the guys can learn what ‘the Program’, where Rory’s team met, was all about.

Joss and Curtis tell Rory the facility in Russia was abandoned and there was no sign of Ronan. The question remains, where are they holding him?

Amanda has a lot of healing to do and the only way to accomplish that is for Simon to do a deep purge to help her regain her memories.

What they discover leads to the revelations of lies and betrayals. Discoveries that come too late to avoid some disasters, but also lead to the recovery of Ronan.

Just about every page reveals pertinent information and peels layers of information off the mystery. With laughter, tears, love and a whole lot more.

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.
Heather Long. The Judas Contact (Kindle Locations 318-342). 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, they set up a lab 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.

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.

“Nope.”

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.

A damn near perfect fit to his larger, broader frame.

Perfect.

Too perfect.

Her fist tightened, reminding him of the precarious position of his manhood, but his cock merely flexed, enjoying the attention.

“I’m waiting.” Her voice was low.

So am I.

He didn’t know who was more startled when his hands came up to her hair and yanked that sexy, little mouth to his. He brought up his knees, clamping her hips and locking her to his body. Her lips were soft, softer than he imagined. He slanted his head, inhaling her breath.

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. He sampled her sweetness, the faintly bitter Arabica, the teasing suggestion of minty toothpaste and just a dash of cinnamon from the sticky buns he’d scented on any number of corners throughout the city.

Her fingers tightened on his cock, spiking pleasure not pain as she stroked him through the trousers. The rooftop faded under the enticement of her lips. He released her mouth for a breath and saw the confusion clouding her eyes, but greedy for another taste of her mouth he refused to answer it. He tugged her hair, pulling her back to him. She stiffened, her upper body arching as her mouth turned into a silent O.
Yesterday’s Heroes (Kindle Locations 215-236). Carina Press. Kindle Edition.

Unfortunately, Garrett, one of the other Boomers shot her with a poison. All hell breaks loose as Michael threatens his team mate and friend in order to save Rory’s life.

All Michael can think about is Rory and how much he desires her and needs to protect her. From everyone except himself. All of which goes against the initial mission, to kill her in order to draw her father, the elusive Hans Geiger, out of hiding.

An intrigue weave of events as we meet all of the Boomers, learning about where they are from, their missions and the chips they have implanted. We also meet the rest of Rory’s team although not in the most favorable way. All of this centered on the passionate relationship blooming between Michael and Rory.

Heather Long’s Boomers Are Back! My Review of Unstoppable: Boomers Book 3


What happens when an unstoppable force
meets an immovable object?

Unstoppable
Boomers Book 3
By
Heather Long

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Joss Archer

Codename: Lieutenant
Abilities: Soldier, Security Specialist, Private Contractor
Mission: Identify and Capture Bio-Enhanced Humans

A private contractor with military experience, retired Army Lieutenant Joss Archer took a job where she thought she could make a difference. In her world, superheroes wear dog tags, not capes.

Dedicated to the principles of defending her nation and loyal to a fault, she is ready to resist any manipulation when she’s captured by what she believes are bio-enhanced mercenaries. The more she learns who her bosses are working for, the more she realizes she may be on the wrong side of this war…

Drake

Codename: Tank
Abilities: Enhanced strength, and impenetrable skin
Mission: Locate Michael & Rex

A man on a mission, Tank has never questioned their goals in traveling through time to prevent the horrible world he and the other Boomers grew up in from ever coming to pass…until now. His fellow Boomers are pairing off, but worse, they are making emotional decisions regarding their mates’ safety over and above the mission.

Betrayed, now the Boomers are missing two of their own, stuck tending to a violently wounded hero who hates them all, and Tank has to not only protect his Captain’s lady, but he has to break the soldier they captured to find out where his people are…

KindleLogo ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

A lot is happening as we start this book. Michael and Rex have been captured in an ambush, thinking to find Ronan.

Rory is pissed because Michael drugged her to protect her. Her rescued teammate Ronan is angry at everyone and everything.

Now that you’re caught up… Drake is watching the complex where they believe the guys are being held. They need to know what building they’re being held in before they attempt a rescue.

As he watches the patterns of the guards he is thinking of the best way to get information which leads to, and I quote, “Simon, I have a really bad idea“.

Joss is well trained, intelligent and a force to be reckoned with. In spite of the situation this is a favorite scene.

Training kept his steps light as he slipped over the edge of the roof and descended the fire escape ladder to the first level. The rickety metal wasn’t the best for disguising his presence, but he made nary a rattle. After utilizing a small laser to free a pane of glass, he reached in and unlocked her window.

Entry brought him into her living room. The television was on, sending flickering light to dance shadows across the room, but the sound was off. Drake went still the moment he entered. He traded the laser in his palm for a small auto-injector loaded with a fairly strong narcotic. It would knock her out and allow him to remove her without a struggle.

Joss Archer won the lottery based on her rigid adherence to protocol and her decision to live off campus. The profile he’d studied on her indicated a straight shooter, honorable to a fault, and well trained. Numerous commendations decorated her military file. No movement disturbed the darkness of the apartment, and the show on the television looked like some kind of drama. Ignoring it, he scanned the layout of the apartment. It was a two bedroom, with a large living room and a kitchen attached.

He made it as far as the sofa before he sensed the trap. Not enough time to react or do much more than brace himself as two prongs slammed into his chest followed by a few thousand volts.

Electricity scorched his system, but Drake withstood the onslaught. Bowing his head, he fought to relax his muscles as they clenched with every jolt zinging through him. His adversary rose, her hand on the Taser control as another series of shocks ripped through him.

The fierce look on Joss’s face drained away as shock filled her eyes. Drake gritted his teeth at the surge in voltage before the device shorted out and the energized assault ceased. Though his overloaded nervous system continued to fire and his heart raced on its own personal marathon, Drake’s spiking adrenaline flooded his system and counteracted most of the effects.

“You done?” It came out far more menacing than he intended, but at the moment, she was lucky he needed her alive and had a personal objection to harming fellow soldiers or he would put her ass through that damn wall. The fucking Taser hurt.

Even as she straightened, the dumbfounded surprise melted from her expression to be replaced by cool competence. If he hadn’t already been struggling with the agony she’d inflicted, he would have admired her. “I was trying to do it the easy way.” Dropping the Taser, she drew out a Beretta M9.

Drake didn’t give her time to draw bead on him. The intent to shoot him reflected clearly in her expression. The dance of shadows from the television provided his only cover, so he didn’t bother. Charging her, he tried to control the force at which he struck her. The gun went off, and the bullet burned a scrape along his biceps.

The soldier bounced off him and hit the wall. A faint crack accompanied her impact and she slumped. Not trusting her compliance, he zip tied her wrists then her feet. Next, he field stripped the Beretta and tossed the parts into different potted plants throughout the apartment. Ripping off a part of his shirt, he tied it around the wound on his arm before he began a systematic sweep.
Heather Long. Unstoppable (Kindle Locations 364-389). All Romance eBooks LLC. Kindle Edition.

You may wonder why that’s a favorite, well it takes a lot to beat one of the Boomers and she definitely gave it her best shot. Love her!!!

Of course, the who kidnapping thing is going to cause her more problems than not. Additionally convincing Joss to help them takes a lot of doing and Drake really started off the wrong way.

However when these two come together it is explosive and at the most inopportune time. As they lose contact with Rory while she’s looking for answers of her own.

Fast paced, nail-biting action and suspense. All topped off with another team member finding love.

A Going Royal Novella

He needs to clean up his reputation . . .
Can this bad boy keep the pop princess safe?
Archer Durham’s career has been defined by his badass attitude both on and off the ice, unfortunately it’s biting him in the ass. After one too many unfortunate videos of him turned up on social media, both his fans and the press have turned against him. The win shines the spotlight on the whole team and he needs to clean up his act…but what the hell does he know about being a knight in shining armor?

Winter Blog ReviewSm

As the latest winner of This Girl’s Got Talent, Hoshi is embracing her new responsibilities. The first of which is filming a holiday special in New York. What she didn’t expect was for her brother to be arrested for bank robbery. Now the press and paparazzi are pressing around her, but she knows nothing. Her father wouldn’t tell her anything.

Archer has been advised by his agent to get out of his hotel because of the expected uproar surrounding Hoshi. He has no intention of doing so, he has plans here for his day with the Cup. Approaching the hotel after his run he sees the young woman without a bodyguard and the press closing in, he steps in. Clearing the path to her car, he becomes her hero. So much for keeping a low profile.

Things really heat up for Hoshi and Archer is determined to keep her safe.

Awesome takes on a couple of my favorite movies in this fun and fabulous read. This is one of them and is a favorite scene.

The self-deprecation worked. She laughed. “Archer, I don’t know if we know each other well enough to go away together.”“That’s the point. We take advantage of the privacy to get to know each other. No press. No siblings. No hockey team.” No royal family, but he kept that one to himself. “Just you and me, kid. What do you say?”
Heather Long. Blocked (Kindle Locations 1056-1058).
Help comes in a surprising way as we learn of the secret Archer has kept throughout his career.A fun read with lots of snark for agents and the press. With lots of build up to the heat that just might melt your e-reader. A definite must read.

Winter Blog Blurb

Most Lone Wolves have a story–a pack they left behind, a love they lost, or worse, one they buried. Some leave their packs to roam because they crave freedom, and independence. Some leave because in their hearts, they can’t bear to stay. Some leave because they see no way to go back… 

Enforcer John Nelson has pulled double duty for months, keeping an eye on the Lone Wolves who are his charges as well as those that once answered to Margo Montgomery. More of a loner than most, he doesn’t mind going months at a time without seeing another Enforcer as was his typical pattern or at least it was until the formation of the Three Rivers pack disrupted lives everywhere. Now he must divide his time between watching the upstarts and checking on his charges while working with the other Enforcers to anticipate the next move by the Russian Volchitsa. No Enforcer expected to find themselves among the hunted, but when they target the one wolf he can tolerate, John defies orders to go after her. 

Hadley Sexton is a bit of a wild card even for an Enforcer, and she loves being unpredictable. More of a mother hen than she likes to admit, she keeps an eye on her Lone Wolves, and treats them more like family than charges…but when three Enforcers are brutally murdered over the course of three weeks, Hadley discovers someone has been shadowing her trail and they aren’t alone. It is a dangerous game with a brutal enemy, one willing to kill the wolves she’s sworn to protect to draw her out. 

For Hadley, John will break every rule, but will he be in time?

Winter Blog Review

While trying to figure out what the hell the Russian Volchitsa is really up to, Julian has ordered his enforcers to gather up their lone wolfs. This is for their own protection, Hadley took that opportunity to purchase an old resort, where all her charges are now ensconced. While some are enjoying the camaraderie, others not so much.

Now with an Enforcer tortured and killed, and another missing and presumed dead, Julian is weighing the possibility of having all lone wolves within pack territories until the threat is eliminated.

Having lost contact with Hadley, John wants to go after her, unfortunately Julian wants him in Willow Bend. Mason has other ideas and sends John on his way with supplies and his request to find her safe. Hadley’s one of his.

This is a favorite scene when John catches up with her.

The Russian witch tracked her in moments, then lunged toward her with a fierce snarl on her face. Hadley met her, and they struck tooth and claw. The woman jerked her hair and tried to flip her, but Hadley was an Enforcer. She’d trained for moments like these. She raked the wolf’s face and drew blood.

A shadow fell over them, and the wolf was hauled off of her. The audible sound of the wolf’s back cracking, followed by the snap of her neck, infuriated Hadley. Just like that, her potential prisoner was dead and thrown to impact against the side of a tree.

Hadley snarled and came to her knees, then met John’s intemperate gaze.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

He frowned, then blinked. “I was saving your life.”

Dammit.
Heather Long. Thunder Wolf (Kindle Locations 1768-1774).

Boy was Hadley pissed. And that was just the beginning.

There is a lot going on in this one. The Volchitsa is getting more aggressive and there is no pattern. It seems they are always one step ahead.

John and Hadley have their own ideas and there are lots of sexy surprises for both them and us in the midst of all this.
