She’s not what she seems. Neither is he. But the terrorist threat is real. So is the desire that smolders between them.

Gwen Shaw overhears refugee teenagers discussing a plot to rival 9/11, but her Arabic is rusty. Besides, who is going to believe the sketchy information from an apron-wearing newcomer, even though she’d recently left the Army as a seasoned officer?

Jonathan O’Neil, new to the Dallas Guardian Security Center, knows a terrorist plot when he sees one on the tempting waitress’ computer. To find out the details of the plan and to stop them, he sets out to seduce her, only to find that nothing is what it seems.

review-fall-cornucopia

When I started reading this I knew it was going to be something different. Especially with Jonathan’s encounter with a couple of older ladies leaving the diner as he is entering. Giggling right from the start.

Quin and Jonathan were having their first meeting since Jonathan had joined him from the Miami Guardian office. However this was not to be a normal meeting in any sense of the word. Interrupted by a distraught well dressed woman full of accusations and venom as their waitress Gwen delivers their order, this is a favorite scene. It does have adult language but it is definitely necessary.

Quin looked clueless, and Jonathan had no idea who any of these people were or what the hell she was talking about.

Gwen appeared with their food and hip checked the woman out of the way. She set the plates on the table and called out to everyone, “Show’s over folks. Go back to your food and drinks.”

She turned to the woman and Gwen fisted her hands in her hips. “Bitsy, what the hell? You know better than to bring your dirty laundry into my restaurant.”

“Well, I tried to get into their office, but it’s like Fort Knox.” Bitsy opened the gigantic yellow purse and started to dig. “Besides, this isn’t your restaurant. Suze and James will be back soon.”

Gwen cocked her head. “It is mine right now, since they left me in charge.” Under her breath, she added, “Damn it all.”

Jonathan flipped the leather tab that secured his handgun in the holster at his side. If she pulled a gun out of there, he’d be ready. A glance toward the standing cops revealed they’d done the same.

Bitsy lifted her head and wagged a single key on a ring. “This fucking thing doesn’t work anymore.” The irate woman vibrated. “Because if had it worked, I would have killed that husband-fucking secretary of theirs.” She glared lasers at Quin and Jonathan.

Then Bitsy pulled a pink Glock 26 from the outside pocket of her purse.
Cooper, KaLyn. Dallas Fire & Rescue: Smoke & Mirrors (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Guardian Elite Book 1) (Kindle Locations 209-221).

There is an immediate attraction between Jonathan and Gwen but he doesn’t act on it right away. He instead becomes a nightly regular for breakfast.

Gwen keeps a close eye on everything in her restaurant. When she overhears some teenage boys speaking Arabic she transcribes what becomes a catalyst for Jonathan to take action. Unfortunately for him that action also leads to what she interprets as betrayal of trust.

A complicated state of affairs as they try to figure out the target of the boys’ relatives. Even as their attraction for each other increases.

A page turner with plenty of twists, turns and action. With a sizzling romance that add some heat to this fiery tale.

Snowflake’s Gift
by Lindsay McKenna
 
Two veterans—one human, one canine—have returned to Montana to recover from the traumas of war. Former Army Ranger Nick Conway depended on his WMD dog Snowflake to help him navigate IEDs on the battlefield.
Now he needs his best friend to help him cope with his PTSD and acclimate to civilian life. When he meets Holly McGuire and agrees to help her deliver meals to the elderly, her inner light calls to him, but his demons hold him back from giving in to his attraction. But Snowflake takes an immediate shine to the kindhearted Holly—and he has never led Nick down the wrong path.  

Review

First thing that nabbed me here was not one but two veterans Nick and his WMD Snowflake.  I love animals and I totally get that they can get PTSD too. It happens not only from war but even abuse can cause an animal to be affected.

This story hits a lot of my emotional triggers with feeding shut-ins and the charity itself. Holly is an incredibly strong woman battling with her own issues while helping others. Especially the one who fights it the most Nick.


Their efforts to get the feral dog Lady to trust enough to allow them near brings me to tears even as she gains weight and gets healthier with there efforts.


A beautiful love story in the spirit of the Holiday season. Keep the tissues handy and enjoy this wonderful read.

SEAL’s Christmas Dream
by J.M. Madden

When Veterinarian Willow James’ office is broken into, it’s natural that she turn to her soul mate, former Navy SEAL K9 handler Joe Flynn, to track down the  culprits. The trail leads to a notorious Pit-Bull fighting ring. It may take a  Christmas miracle and a helpful nudge from an old partner to get everyone home
safely.

Review

Right off the bat I have to say I love Willow and Joe and their every growing family. More pets the merrier and now with their daughter that will only expand I’m sure.

Joe continues his collecting of all types of strays. This time however he found one he couldn’t just bring in. A young boy and his dog have been hanging around near the clinic. The dog is undernourished and Joe scared them off with a can of food but by leaving cans near the spot they know the boy gets them.

The boy comes to the clinic carrying his dog, and much is learned about him. Mateo keeps his dog away from his family and he had gotten tangled in his chain unable to get to his water or food.

To pay for his dog Ranvir’s treatment, the boy starts working at Willow’s clinic. Mateo wants to be a Vet like her and help animals not like the rest of his family. Things brought to light when Joe and Maya bring what appears to be a bait dog used in pitt bull fighting to the clinic.

I cried again, for the dogs for Mateo and well for everything. I laughed at the animal’s antics and I totally loved this holiday story, it is filled with love, charity and hope.

Noel’s Puppy Power
by KaLyn Cooper

Tanner Hill is better at communicating with animals than women. That might be
why he hasn’t had a second date in over two years. He’s also been extremely busy with his kennel that has become the premier training facility, specializing in supplying dogs to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Then again, there is this psychologist he can’t get out of his head, or his heart.
Dr. Bailey Conrad would never allow the loss of half her right leg to an IED in Iraq to stop her. Every day at the VA hospital, she sees patients who have lost so much more to the war effort. It’s her goal in life to help as many vets as possible to find a ‘new normal’, because she knows firsthand, it’s the internal scars that can be the most difficult to heal.

Review


This book starts with Bailey arriving in time for a puppy or two to make their appearance. In the first few minutes after Apollo’s daughter is born Love takes root and not just between Bailey and Noel. Tanner definitely has more than a professional interest in Bailey. Proving it as he escorts Bailey to her car by asking, or was he telling her she is his date for Case’s New Year’s Party.


With Bailey training for the Paralympic Team and Tanner going back to school they have difficulty coming together. Once they do, it is both an emotional and sensual explosion. Fan’s self, and there is no sex in this book!


We also see many puppy antics that will make you giggle just like I did.


KaLyn makes you feel everything her characters are going through and this book is emotional with highs and lows. There is a lot of information hidden in it about PTSD and Veteran Suicide. Rough topics that need to be brought out in any forum we can get them in. Every book is a big Thank You to all our Serving and Veteran Military for their service and sacrifices.

Noel’s Puppy Power
by KaLyn Cooper
I want to thank KaLyn for the opportunity to read an ARC of Noel’s Puppy Power so I could review it here for Release Day.

I really loved the opening of this story. A perfect introduction to our main characters. Tanner you may remember from Unrelenting Love since he trained both Damnit and his owners. He trains service dogs for veterans and Apollo and Chrys are his mating pair. Apollo has provided him with several male service dogs and it looks like this latest birthing will be more of the same.

We meet Bailey while Chrys is giving birth. She’s on her way to meet up with her military friends, but stops by with information for Tanner on the latest Vets approved for his dogs. She is thrilled to be involved in the birthing process of these new pups. Of course Case, Tanner’s friend and vet has to show up just as things were about to get interesting.

However, his arrival leads into one of my favorite scenes as Chrys gives birth to her sixth pup.
Chrys was tired. She’d been at this for hours.“You can do this,” Bailey reassured the puffing dog.As though believing the words, Chrys sucked in a deep breath. When she moaned, Bailey looked to Case for help, but he was smiling, staring at the lifted tail.

“Good girl, just a little more.” Case applied pressure to the pelvic area. “One more.”

In the dog’s next breath, Tanner exclaimed, “Yes. She did it.”

Chrys exhaled and laid her head down.

“Tanner, throw me that towel.” Case nodded to the cloth next to him. “Let’s help her out a little. I’m not sure she has it in her right now to tend to this little one.” Together the two men dealt with the mess of the newborn puppy.

Yip.

The high-pitched tiny noise shocked Bailey. Her gaze flew to the men and the tiny squirming bundle in their huge hands. Deep laughs filed the lobby.

“Well, aren’t you a feisty one?” Case said to the pup. It had an angry look on its tiny face, that couldn’t be any bigger than a quarter. It yapped again, this time louder. Bailey and the two men laughed. Her heart warmed at the delightful sound of the adorable new, tiny animal.

“Well, let’s see what we have here.” Case rolled the new life over and rubbed the towel on its belly. “Well, I’ll be.”

“Wow. It’s a girl.” Tanner rubbed the hair on Apollo’s head. “Congratulations on your first daughter.”

A thrill welled inside Bailey. She’d been there. Watching and comforting the mother had been a huge delight, but to be there for a first, filled her to overflowing joy.

Tanner’s smile was ear to ear. “You must be good luck, Bailey. Why don’t you do the honors and name her?”

Bailey’s mind went instantly blank. She couldn’t think of a name. Sure, she had lots of girlfriends, but it didn’t seem fair to use one of those. The others would need dogs named after them, too, and at the lack of female pups around there, it would take a lifetime. Tanner often waited to name the puppies. He liked their personality to dictate the name.

“Oh, I don’t know if I could.”

“Sure you can,” Case encouraged. “I can see the gears grinding in that pretty head of yours.”

Bailey’s phone started to play the “The First Noel”. It was her military friends checking to be sure she was still coming. The words ran through the back of her mind, silently singing along to the tune she’d heard three times already that day. She smiled. “Noel. She’s the first Noel.”

“Works for me.” Case thrust the towel and Noel toward her.

“Say hello to her, doc. I’ve got to check Chrys.”

Bailey took the precious little life into her cupped hands. She ran her thumb over the back that seemed to be in constant motion. “Welcome to the world, Noel.” She showed the mother her newest arrival and allowed her to lick, just as Tanner had instructed earlier. Then, she placed the smallest of the litter in the middle, hoping her brothers would keep her warm.

Lindsay McKenna is the pseudonym of award-winning author Eileen Nauman. With more than 145 titles to her credit and approximately 23 million books sold in 33 countries worldwide, Lindsay is one of the most distinguished authors in the women’s fiction genre. She is the recipient of many awards, including six RT Book Reviews awards (including best military romance author) and an RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award. In 1999, foreseeing the emergence of ebooks, she became the first bestselling women’s fiction author to exclusively release a new title digitally.She is releasing a new family saga-series, Delos, in October 2015. NOWHERE TO HIDE, 10.13.2015 will be published by her. Morgan’s Mercenaries, 45 books strong, has been the longest running saga-series in publishing history. She is now creating another family and Delos Series will bring romantic suspense, which she is famous for writing, to her many readers. For more, go to her website.

In recognition of her status as one of the originators of the military adventure/romance genre, Lindsay is affectionately known as “The Top Gun of Women’s Military Fiction.” Lindsay comes by her military knowledge and interest honestly–by continuing a family tradition of serving in the U.S. Navy. Her father, who served on three different destroyers in the Pacific theater during World War II, instilled a strong sense of patriotism and duty in his daughter.

So, upon graduating high school, Lindsay–already a student pilot–continued the family custom by enlisting in the U.S. Navy and serving three years (1964-67) as an AG3–Aerographer’s Mate Third Class (meteorologist).

Since that time Lindsay has kept up her interest in test piloting and training as research for her military romance novels. In pursuit of authenticity, she has undergone high-altitude hyperbaric chamber training at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, flown an Air Force T-38 “chase plane” out of  Edwards Air Force Base in California, undertaken two missions (a 12-hour day mission and a five-hour night mission) in an Air Force Strategic Air Command  (SAC) B-52 bomber out of K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base in Michigan, flown in a Falcon Coast Guard jet from Coast  Guard Miami Air Station in Florida and participated in search-and-rescue helicopter and training missions out of the Coast Guard Port Angeles in Washington.

Naturally, Lindsay’s military experience is the backbone of her writing–in addition to being credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive of Fate, 1983), she has created a thriving sub-genre within the romance field. It is, therefore, no surprise that her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are a backdrop for her upcoming Operation: Shadow Warriors series.

Of course, Lindsay’s interests don’t end with the military. Research for other novels has pushed her into becoming intimately acquainted with other professions that serve the common good. From 1981 to 1983, she served as a volunteer firefighter with the West Point Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio and helped pioneer the role of female firefighters. And from 1996 to 2000, Lindsay was registered as an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic in Arizona–expertise that is reflected in emergency and accident situations in her books.

Lindsay loves to hear from her readers and loves to know what they’d like to see her write next.

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! When an undercover CIA agent rescues a kidnapped ATF explosives expert, it’s a race against time as they try to stay one step ahead of the Colombian drug lord hot on their trail. If you’re looking for passion and adventure, you’ll find it all in KaLyn Cooper’s action-packed romance, Explosive Combination.

Separately, Harper Tambini and Rafe Silva are lethal… Together, they’re explosive.

ATF Special Agent Harper Tambini is kidnapped by a Colombian drug lord and forced to use her explosives knowledge to kill his competition before she can escape with the help of undercover CIA agent Rafe Silva.

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.

Harper learned the hard way that men never stay, so now she doesn’t keep them around long enough to see if the sparks can light a fire that will last forever.

In their short time together, can they crystalize a relationship, or will it all blow up?

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.

Don’t miss book one of the Black Swan Series, Unrelenting Love. Links below.

New From KaLyn Cooper: Unrelenting Love – Black Swan Series Book 1


About The Black Swan Series

The Ladies of Black Swan were active duty military selected for a test program to prove women could be as effective as men in Special Operations. They were trained like SEALs, Special Forces, Force Recon, and Marine SpecOps. Unable to return to the military until the services allow women in those roles, these five highly-trained assassins now work for Section 7 of the Department of Homeland Security. Their mission is always to eliminate someone who has the potential to cause a Black Swan event such as 9/11.

It takes a special man, an Ubuer Alpha, to love a woman who can shoot better than they can and who looks better in a Ghillie Suit than they do. But when they capture the heart of a Black Swan, they mate for life.

In more ways than one. Seeing her again, brought back memories of their college days, when they were lovers, and she was his. Now both single, again, he’s determined to make her his forever.

Summer My Review

I’ll start with WOW! I totally loved this book. There is nothing like 5 incredibly brave, strong women to put men in there place. In this case in more ways than one.

Katlyn is Lady Hawk, the commander of the Ladies of the Black Swan. A secret military test group, trained as special ops. Their goal is simple in theory, complicated in fact, challenging in all. Challenges her team are more than qualified to meet and do EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. As a result they have a large price on their heads, more even than the Navy Seals do.

I think Alex doomed himself right at the beginning of the book when he and one of his managers were discussing the  female who passed Ranger School. Then seeing Katlyn in the company apartment only confirms the fact that these two want each other. No matter what might happen. Even as they stop fighting it, there is her job and his. He isn’t going to like hers at all. Here is a favorite scene while they celebrate Lei Lu’s birthday.

Alex pressed his whole body against her and took her mouth with commitment. It was too much. She hadn’t been kissed like that in… years. She slowly pulled back and gentled the kiss.

When they came up for air, he hugged her tightly as they both caught their breath. He ran his hand up and down her back.

“Christ, I’ve missed you,” he said into her ear and squeezed her even tighter.

Tori and Nita walked into their VIP seating area and grabbed their drinks. Nita swatted Katlin’s outstretched legs and said, “Get a room, bitch, or share.” Katlin untangled herself from Alex and gave him a passing kiss as she sat upright on the couch. Nita fell into the space beside her. Tori threw her endless legs onto the third couch and stretched as everyone ignored Grace, who was having a private conversation with   Griffin.

“Where’s our birthday girl?” Tori asked, looking around. “I thought she was with you,” Katlin said.

Manuel, standing at the railing to watch the dancing mob, announced, “She’s on the floor with both the pro dancers. She’s having a good time. She’s on her third shot, though.”

“She’s an adult, and besides, it’s her birthday.” Nita shrugged as she licked the last drop of her pink drink. “She can deal with it.”

“She’ll just sleep in tomorrow, and we’ll be expected to drag her sorry ass out of bed sometime after noon,” Tori reasoned.

“I’ll whip up my hangover cure, and she’ll be fine within a few hours,” Nita offered.

Katlin finished her double, a needed alcoholic reinforcement. She looked at Alex and said, “Let’s go dance.” She took his hand and pulled him off the couch toward the floor of bouncing bodies. As they found space amidst the dancers, a Latin pop song started.

Katlin draped her hands loosely on Alex’s shoulders as her whole body moved to the music. He placed his hands to her hips, and they moved together as though they had been professional Salsa dancing partners for years.
Unrelenting Love-Black Swan Series Book 1 (Kindle Locations 2197-2216).

Lots of action, fun, laughter, tears and sizzling hot sex. I can’t wait for the next in this series.

KaLyn Cooper

 

 

KaLyn Cooper writes romantic suspense based in fact. Twenty-seven years as a military wife has shown her the world and the men and women who protect it every day. Thirty years in PR taught her fact can be stranger than fiction, but leaves it up to the reader to separate truth from imagination. She and her husband live in Tennessee on their micro-plantation filled with gardens, cattle, quail, and a bird dog. When she’s not writing, she’s at the shooting range or on the river.
