Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy 

Aspiring author, Nate Wilson wants some space from his overbearing family and a job he doesn’t like. A week on the Oregon coast sounds like paradise and just what he needs to get the creative juices flowing. Unfortunately, his plans are derailed when a storm moves in and a ghostly figure flashes in his headlights, sending him skidding off the road and into a tree. Lucky for him, he ends up in front of a Bed and Breakfast, and the beautiful owner may do more to spur his creativity than any beach could.

Hesitant witch and inn owner, Haylee Clark is cursed. Well, not her exactly—at least not yet—but all of the women in her family have suffered the same fate. They fell in love, only to have that passion turn sour and their husbands die tragically, leaving them brokenhearted. So far, Haylee has done well to avoid that destiny, but when the captivating Nate Wilson crashes into her life, he awakens something within her that she never thought to feel.

When the pair stumbles upon a hidden room where Haylee’s grandmother used to conduct her rituals, they unknowingly unleash a dark entity hell-bent on destruction, and discover that a family heirloom is the source of the Clark family curse. Despite the spell, they can’t deny their attraction, and give in to the magic between them. But the closer Haylee and Nate get, the more the curse tries to tear them apart. If they don’t find a way to defeat the evil, they may lose more than their hearts.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Once again Lia perks up the interest in the first pages. A cloaked figure in white, a gargoyle waking, a cemetery and a bed and breakfast. Add in a car accident and we have our recipe for danger and excitement.

Hitting a tree was not how Nate wanted to start his vacation, but being it was close to a bed and breakfast it wasn’t so bad. Well other than the storm that was raging.

Haylee the proprietor of the quaint establishment, was welcoming in spite of her staff being off for the weekend. Although she may have been a bit short when explaining no phone or internet. I think that snippiness was more due to the attraction she was feeling than anything else.

Neither Haylee or Nate know what to make of Cam, showing up with no luggage in the middle of the storm. He’s here one minute then gone the next.

A spooky basement, with a somewhat hidden room discovered on a tour of the house. Something else is happening beyond the curse she knows about.  This is a favorite scene as they try to piece together what Haylee’s grandmother had done.

“Grams had worked in the ritual room for days. She’d forbidden me from entering the basement. When she finally came out, the stone was gone and she told me that everything would be fine now.” Haylee hugged her waist as a single tear rolled down her cheek. “The next morning, I found her dead in her bed. She’d passed in her sleep.”

Instantly, Nate rushed around the desk and wrapped his arms around her, drawing her into his chest. “I believe it’s the stone that’s cursed, not your family.”

She lifted her head and locked gazes with him, her eyes narrowing. “The stone? Why the stone?”

“I’m not sure. But I think we need to find out.” The first thing Nate would do was question the old man. After all, it was he who’d planted the idea in his head. “What do you know about it?”

“Grams found it when she and Papa were on vacation at the coast. The Sunstone can aid in healing, protection, and success. Plus, it’s associated with the element fire, which was Grams’ favorite element to work with.”

Haylee averted her gaze and moved toward the door, but not before he saw the tears fill her eyes.

“Is it possible that if the stone were cursed, it would react negatively?”

Stopping in the doorway, she turned to him. “Yes, that would, in many cases, be the point of a curse.” She rushed out the room as if realizing something.

He followed her with quick steps, stopping when she entered her bedroom. “What is it?” “It’s just a thought, but I think Grams was trying the break the curse. When she was unable to, she tried to contain the negative energy.” She zipped from her dresser to the nightstands on either side of her bed, opening drawers.

Confused, he watched her go to the closet and dig around on the floor. “I’m not following.”

“If it is the stone that’s cursed, then the fire within the stone is gone. The attraction and sexual energy were altered in some way. That is the only thing that makes senses.” She pulled out a shoebox and opened it. A moment later, she withdrew a black cloth. After removing the Sunstone from around her neck, she wrapped it in the cloth and placed it inside the box.

“Without the fire, the passion, a couple will fall out of love.”
SunstonesFire LiaDavis-eBook (Kindle Locations 411-429). Kindle Edition.

Nate and Haylee need to find a way to undo the curse or neither of them will ever have a happily ever after. Then there is Cam and his secrets.

I thoroughly enjoyable read. Lots of suspense and intrigue combined with a love story that gets the heart pounding and the pulse racing.

I can’t wait for the next installment in this series.

Announcing a New Series: Cursed in Stone – Five Novellas from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne


CIS websiteHeader

It is my great pleasure to introduce
Cursed in Stone, a Gothic Romance series from Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne
with After Glows Publishing

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy

Constantine De La Fontaine fought in the Third Crusade, certain he was on the side of the righteous. After being wounded in battle, he’s tended to by the beautiful and mysterious Amara, a woman who’s hiding a dangerous secret. She’s the caliph’s daughter, and he’s promised her hand in marriage to the demon who’s made him powerful. Con and Amara’s love is white hot, but forbidden. When the demon finds out about their tryst, he lashes out in a jealous rage, cursing both to live out eternity in their own personal hells.

For centuries, Con lives as a gargoyle, cursed in stone and destined to watch others find love, with no knowledge of Amara’s fate. Able to take human form only during the three nights of the full moon, he wanders the streets of the cities the curse transports him to, lost and broken hearted. Then, a whisper on the wind and a magical pull to a gemstone gives him new hope for breaking his curse and finding out what’s happened to his lost love. A cloaked figure, an ancient tome, and more gemstones slowly begin to help him unravel the mystery of his curse—and possibly his freedom.

This incredible saga unfolds in a series of five novella-length stories, each set a different city around the world.

The series begins with Sunstone’s Fire, releasing on April 5, 2016, then followed by Opal’s Seduction, Amethyst’s Imbalance, Sapphire’s Star, and wraps up with Emerald’s Light on October 11, 2016. Learn more at: Cursed In Stone

While Zavier Sullivan may be the calm, reserved brother, his dragon is not. Especially since the beautiful, unorganized demi-goddess, Danielle Roberts—a.k.a Elle—moved into the mansion and into his life. She disturbs his OCD and makes him yearn for things he shouldn’t, but he can’t stay away from her. Nor can he deny her anything. Including his blood.

Ever since arriving at the home of the Sons of War, Elle has been plagued with dreams of the past and future. The visions are taking a toll, causing her debilitating headaches and ruining her sleep, but she doesn’t know what it all means. Her mother, Nyx, the Goddess of Night, has never bothered to show up and explain things to her. Until she arrives and unlocks Elle’s powers, promptly transforming her into a half-daimon, half-goddess. Now, Zavier may be her only hope of holding onto her humanity, but can she bond with him after everything she’s seen? Especially in the midst of everything the Sons and their mates are going through.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This story begins with Elle having a vision, one where Zavier her fated mate, dies. In order to prevent that she must get the Divine Dagger from the underworld, and hide it from Garrick.  Garrick (Zavier’s brother) is planning on overthrowing the Gods something that cannot be allowed to happen.

When Nyx, Goddess of Darkness and Elle’s mother shows up and unlocks her powers without warning or explanation.   Elle is suddenly a lot more than she was, but the transformation is harsh and debilitating. This is one of my favorite passages.

“Please don’t touch me.”
 
“Let me help you.”
 
“You’ve done enough. The mild skin irritation I used to get when going out in the sun has turned into blisters. My skin actually started to burn.” She closed her eyes, trying to calm the anger bubbling up while wishing she weren’t trapped inside a closet. A moment later, she was pulled through some kind of parallel space. When she opened her eyes, she gasped to find that she was standing next to her bed.
 
She’d teleported. Wide-eyed, she stared at Zavier, who faced her then closed the closet door. His features didn’t reveal any change in emotion. “What’s going on? You know something.”
 
He released a sigh and leaned against her dresser. “Gwen and I did some research and talked with Ash. Nyx isn’t just the goddess of night, she is night. But you already knew that much.”
 
She folded her arms and glared. “Just fucking tell me how much of a monster I’ve become.”
Chaotic War (Kindle Locations 359-366). After Glows. Kindle Edition.

 

A fast paced tale with lots of frustration sexual and otherwise. I love how each installment reveals twists and turns making the wait for the next one difficult, but worth it.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - Synopsis

The kitchen isn’t the only thing heating up this winter…

Tiffany Black, culinary artist and owner of Beary Sweets Café, is determined to make this year’s Winter Solstice celebration one to remember. Especially since it will also be the mating ceremony for her brother, Anthony, and soon-to-be sister-in-law, Connie. She wants everything to be perfect. Unfortunately, you can’t always get what you want. When she falls off a ladder in her café and breaks her ankle, she fears her plans are doomed. Until the sexy bear Healer, Holt, comes to the rescue—stirring up more than just recipes.

Mating has never been at the top of Holt’s to-do list, and he’s known Tiffany all her life. So when the mating urge slams into him after mending her ankle, he’s taken aback—unsure and intrigued at the same time. The girl he watched grow up is now a curvy, sensual woman, and his bear wants to claim her. He wants to claim her.

The stubborn female refuses to follow Healer’s orders and allow her ankle to heal, and she’s hell-bent on catering the winter celebrations. In order to do what needs to be done, she insists that he help her. Since it gives him an excuse to stay by her side, he’s all right with that. As they work side by side to make the Solstice unforgettable, their passions ignite, and things turn utterly delicious.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

Nothing says holiday like fresh baked goods, and lots of party foods. No one makes them better than Tiffany and when a storm threatens, she decides to move everything from Beary Sweets to her home. She doesn’t want the food to be stuck far away from the Winter Celebrations of Solstice and Matings.

In the process of moving things to the truck she spots the cake topper she thought she misplaced, out of her reach so she climbs up falls and breaks her ankle.  Shouldn’t be too big a deal Holt will fix her up and she’ll be good as new.

Only Holt doesn’t do a quick heal and quickly finds himself recruited to help. All it takes is a kiss that he’s not sure how happened and he’s fleeing the scene. Leaving Tiffany feeling hurt and rejected thinking he doesn’t feel the mating pull.

That all changes the next day after completing the prep for the next day’s celebration. Tiffany’s Mom takes Kaylee off for the rest of the day, leaving Holt and Tiffany alone. Subtle they aren’t, but they are shifters after all. This was a favorite scene.

Instead of picking up the crutch, he scooped her up in his arms and carried her to the sofa. “Want anything to eat?”

“Yes, please. There are pre-portioned meals in the freezer.”

He frowned, not at all liking the idea of her dieting. “What for?”

Tiffany laughed. “I get so busy working on new recipes and with the day-to-day at the café, that when I settle down, I’m too tired to cook. So, once a week I cook all my meals for the week and freeze them.”

His cheeks heated with embarrassment. “I’m sorry…”

She pressed a finger to his lips and gave him a smile that made his pants uncomfortable. “Shush. Go warm us up something to eat.”

“Yes, ma’am.” Before he straightened, he leaned in and kissed her. Pleasure exploded across his senses. When their tongues touched, a shot of electrified energy blasted through him.

Reluctantly, he ended the kiss and pressed his forehead to hers. A soft sigh escaped Tiffany. “If you have no intentions to claim me as your mate, you need to leave.”

What? He drew back, confused, and stared into her blue gaze. “Trust me, I have every intention, but I thought you needed time. That we needed time to…I don’t know, date or something.”

She nibbled on her bottom lip briefly before replying. “Dating is for humans. We’ve known each other all my life, even became friends. There’s no one else I’d rather be mated to.”

He scooped her up and proceeded down the hall, thoughts of food forgotten.

Now we can’t have everything go smoothly even at the holidays so the storm has to throw some wrenches into the mix. Not enough to spoil the ceremonies but enough to cause some angst.

Lots of love, laughter and very few tears. A perfect holiday read.

Fall Tree Blog - Blurb

Established author and black dragon shifter, Cayden Rienhardt, has watched over the beautiful and very human, Nyna Carter, most of her life. But he never entertained the idea of more until recently. When an ex-lover from Nyna’s past comes back to Woodland Creek and makes it clear she plans to spend her life with Nyna, Cayden’s dragon forces him to break his silence and make a move to cast his magical web. But he could get more than he ever bargained for in the process.

Eighteen months ago, lone cat shifter Kara Mitchell inadvertently witnessed the murder of her best friend’s parents. When she fled the scene to contact the police, she was captured and held prisoner, forcing her to leave Nyna and her life behind with no explanation. Now that she’s escaped her captors, she returns to Woodland Creek to help Nyna find closure and stop the murderer, but things aren’t as she remembered. Not only is there a rift between her and Nyna, there’s a very sexy dragon shifter complicating matters.

Stuck in a web of lies, scandal, and a tantalizing love triangle, Nyna isn’t sure whom to trust. Her heart wants both Kara and Cayden, but they each have secrets. When Kara reveals that someone close to Nyna is responsible for her parents’ murders, her love life becomes secondary to the investigation. She is determined to find out the truth. Even if it means that her life will change forever.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review

After escaping her jailers, Kara’s first thought was to get to Nyna and tell her the truth about her parents murder. She had been waiting for her to open her shop in cat form when Cayden grabbed her and took her to his home.

Cayden wasn’t going to let Kara anywhere near Nyna. She had been heartbroken when her Uncle Henry told her Kara had run away with some internet boyfriend. So he would learn where she had been before Nyna even knows she is back.

Nyna’s uncle had been checking up on her frequently and now had purchased a home near Woodland. She didn’t understand why since he really never liked the town.

Together the dragon, the kitty cat and the human have to figure everything out from the web bonding to the murder of Nyna’s parents.

This was a fun read. Not too intense, but the search for evidence got me holding my breath and quite a few surprises pop up along the way. Love the dragon and the black kitty shifter forms the kitty especially was 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.

While out pursuing her passion for wildlife photography, she’s confronted by a hunter with his sights set on dominating her. Determined to teach the human a lesson, she’s a little annoyed when a sexy bear shifter shows up and chases the hunter away.

Anthony Black is the Marshal of Blackrock. His number one priority is protecting his den—and his mate. But keeping Connie safe is a challenge in itself. Not only is he unsure if she’ll accept him, but the stubborn and sexy witch loves her independence. Almost as much as she loves teasing him—something that makes him mad with desire.

With new threats to the Pack rearing their ugly head, Anthony must find a way to win her heart while convincing her they’re better together than apart. Because despite how hot her teasing makes him, securing her in his life and in his Pack is no laughing matter.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

Connie and Natalie (Trey’s mate) are best friends. Now visiting the den regularly, Connie has the suspicion that Anthony (Trey’s oldest brother) may be her mate.

Anthony really doesn’t want to face the fact that he has a mate close by, but his bear is telling him Connie is the one.

When Connie confronts a hunter in Blackrock territory, Anthony realizes he may not be able to hide the truth from her much longer.

Misunderstanding leads to Connie walking away from him only to find him ready to grovel for her forgiveness. During this make-up meal she acknowledges the mate thing and is one of my favorite scenes, shows Connie’s snarkiness perfectly.

“Do you accept the mating?”

She held up a hand. “Not so fast, furball. Don’t put words in my mouth. I just said I know how this mating dance thing works. But I also know we don’t fully bond until I give my heart to you completely.”

He stared at her, one brow raised. “Furball?”

“Is that all you heard me say?”

A lot of giggling from me as these two figure out the mating thing. Some hold your breath moments and some very hot sex. Perfect afternoon getaway read.

SummerBlog My Review

Nicole moved to Blue Ridge to start over, without anyone judging her.  She needs a job but it seems they all want a college degree that she doesn’t have. While enjoying a hazelnut mocha latte at Beary Sweets, she notices the three very large gorgeous men watching her. When one of them comes over to her table she really wasn’t in the mood to for male pranks and bets. This is one of my favorite scenes.

 

Her heart hammered when he sat in the seat across from her and leaned over the table. When he spoke, his words came out as a husky growl-like whisper. “Have dinner with me.”

 

Blinking, she tamped down the urge to touch him. What the hell was wrong with her?  “I’m sorry, I don’t have dinner with strangers.”

 

The corners of his full mouth lifted. “Forgive me.” he offered her his hand. “I’m Trey Black.”

 

She flicked her gaze to the other two men at the front table. They stared at her and the handsome stranger as if eagerly waiting for Trey to score. Not today. All the fire inside her dissolved into a cool mist. She tucked her tablet into her tote and stood. “I’m not interested in middle school games. If you’d like, I can just give you my panties and save you the trouble. That way, you won’t look like a total loser in front of your friends.”

 

When she turned, he gripped her wrist. Electrified prickles raced up her arm, awakening the flame once again. “I don’t play games. I like you.”

 

She almost laughed. “You could have any woman you want. A perfect model type, So forgive me if I don’t believe you.”

 

Snatching her wrist free from his grasp, she fled past his friends and out the door.

 

I love the way Trey goes about trying to convince Nicole of her beauty. It’s a good thing she already knows a bit about the animals in the area, thanks to her BFF  Connie.
This is a short eventful book with a bit of angst, some jealousy and a bunch of sizzling sex.

SummerBlog Blurb and  SummerBlog My Review

This book was a gift from the publisher for a fair and honest review.
Of these six authors there is only one that is new to me, Marie Harte and now she is a favorite too. All the others are favorites and I must read everything I can by them.


THE HUNTED HEART
(A Redwood Pack Novella)
by NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived.

Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. When he finally takes that final step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and overcomes the past she thought she’d lost years ago.

My Review:

Emeline is an elder of the Redwood pack.  A scholar who is searching a library of books to find a cure for the pack Doctor North’s blindness.

Noah is a young wolf, who has taken over North’s duties, and is helping Emeline with her research.  He also knows she is his mate, the problem is getting her to realize it.

My favorite quote in this book is when Lexi and Bay are helping Emeline prepare for a date with Noah.

“Oh, honey, please stop calling yourself a cougar,” Lexi said, tears streaming from her eyes.

Emeline put her fists on her hips and scowled.  “That’s what I am, aren’t I?”

“No. Emeline, you’re a wolf,” Bay said, clearly trying not to smile and failing badly. “A female wolf about to go on a date with a very sexy male wolf.  Stop calling yourself a cougar. 

Though, oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

There is anxst, jealousy, pain, and love that is worked through in this story.  With each turn of the page I found myself holding my breath to see what would happen next.

A wonderful read, I wait anxiously for the next book in this series.

JACKAL’S MEASURE
(A Ludos Deorum Novella)
by NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Marie Harte

Tortured by the god of chaos for centuries, Tariq knows only duty to numb the pain.

When he’s sent to collect Eden, a sexy human accused of interfering in the Games of the Gods, his missing heart beats again.

But love may not be enough to save them.

My Review:

I had never read Marie Harte before, now I know what I have been missing.

Games of the Gods. Nordic, Greek and Egyptian. A way to break the boredom of the pantheons.

Egyptian guardians to Anubus and Set, a girl who remembers even though they try to wipe her memory. It is a love that time and many different lives cannot suppress.

Tariq and Eden’s story is full of intriguing twists and turns. She begins to recall her past life with Tariq, when her name was Rehema.

Set wants something from Eden, but she doesn’t remember. One of my favorite scenes is just before Set arrives on the scene and Eden is beginning to remember her past lives.

“I can’t help being scared. This is all so new, and yet it’s not. I loved you as Rehema, but I didn’t know you when I was Gretchen or Marguerite. The knowledge of those other lives is starting to seep into me, and I’m scared.” In a low voice, she confessed, “When you left me the first time, it devastated me. I can’t lose you again.”

He pulled back to dry her tears. “We’ll find a way, habibti. No matter what, I won’t let anyone keep us apart.” He wanted to reassure her again, but what felt like an earthquake rocked the house.

“What—”

Tariq, my pet, Set whispered. I want my prize.

I really loved this book, and I found myself adding her books to my growing TBR mountain.

ALPHA’S SACRIFICE
(A Fallen Alpha Novella)
by Rebecca Royce
Hayden Chaucer is determined to make the best life possible for his pack and is ill-prepared to discover his true mate waiting for him in his home.
Worse, his mate, Chelsea, has fled the True Believers, and her ability to see the future may cost them their present.

My Review:

Sexy, strong and dominant is a very brief description of Hayden Chaucer, Alpha of a small, loyal pack and owner the Chaucer Family Winery.

Chelsea Steefle is human, she has to warn Hayden of a threat to his life before it is too late. Problem is that to most people she appears to be crazy. She has visions and that’s how she knows Hayden and his pack are in danger.

My favorite part of this novella was when Hayden was trying to explain the true mating to Chelsea.

“It’s not all that common.” He shifted his stance suddenly feeling uncomfortable. “But it happens. It’s not like we’re not…built to be compatible. We have all the rights parts. It’s just that True Matings are rare, and, usually, if a wolf is settling into a relationship that isn’t a True Mating, they choose to do it with one of our own kind so that there aren’t the problems of existing in two different worlds. So, I guess it’s fair to say that most human-werewolf joinings are usually True Matings.”

She walked toward him, her eyes narrowed. “If all of this is true, then everything I’ve been through has been leading to this moment. My destiny. Is that it? Some universal deity decided that I should mate a werewolf and so, therefore, it shall be?”

A hot sexy read from Rebecca Royce, I love your Alpha wolves! I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

TOUCH OF DESIRE
(An Ashwood Falls Novella)
by Lia Davis
A submissive wolf who lost it all finds herself in a mating dance with the very dominant senior enforcer who will stop at nothing to claim her.

My Review:

I love the Ashwood Falls series and I loved this added glimpse.

Cora is suffering from nightmares of being chased by and caught by Mutants (half human/half shifter beings), in the same way her parents and more recently her brother had ultimately met their deaths. On top of all this her wolf has withdrawn and she cannot shift.

With the help of her former Alpha she gets a job, designing the new security that would encompass the Ashwood Falls and MoonRiver dens.

In her new position she must work with Torin, a dominant male who knows she is his mate. He has been very patient so she can work through her grief but knows he must make a move.

A favorite passage in this book is when Cora is getting ready for a date with Torin.
Cora picked at her water bottle. “I can stay….”

“No way. You’re not getting out of it that easy. It’s about time you gave into Torin. I mean, the male has been chasing you for the last few months.” Jasmine tried to hide her smile behind the bottle. She failed terribly when it came to teasing Cora about Torin.

“Well he isn’t leaving much room for me to run anymore. Working on the security system means also working with him.” She sighed and leaned against the counter. “I don’t know how to handle him. He’s so much male and dominant.”

Jasmine laughed. “You don’t handle a male like Torin. You tease, love, and bite him.”

This book is well written with laughter, angst, tears, fear and sizzling hot passion. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

SANGUE FEVER
by Ann Mayburn
Drifting without a purpose, vampire Lisabetta finds herself yearning for something more. She finds it while hunting for her next donor. Things are not quite as they seem when she seduces an older mortal man and finds herself in danger of falling in love for the first time in centuries.

My Review:

When Ann Mayburn writes anything you know the sex is going to be take a cold shower hot. Sangue Fever is no exception.

Lizabetta is a vampire who wants something more than the feed and memory wipe that is common. Her Master Sargon wants her to become a maker herself so she can have the committed relationship, that for some reason she can’t seem to have with him.

She meets Tyler and everything is different. Could he be the one that she could find that happiness with? Would Sargon approve of her choice and will he be allowed in the relationship?

One of my favorite passages is when she first sees Tyler

The feeling of needing, craving.. something intensified until she hugged herself, wishing Sargon was still here so he could hold her.

As that last thought made her want to tear up, she met the gaze of a man in his early forties sitting in another area of the VIP section. He had close-cropped dark hair with thick shocks of silver streaking through it. A black cowboy hat sat on the table before him, and she had a sudden, vivid mental image of riding him wearing just the hat. He was sexy, so damn sexy it made her teeth ache to taste him. His tanned face had faint lines, and she could see the solid, muscular build of his broad chest and shoulders beneath his paid shirt. Something about him radiated power and control, but it wasn’t in the way of immortals. No, this man was one hundred percent human and utterly delicious. All thoughts of anyone’s gaze except for the powerful man before her vanished as pure primal need filled her.

She wanted him.

Now.

This book just sizzles off the pages.

FORBIDDEN RESCUE
(A Watchers Novella)
by Heather Long

All Jubilee Spector wants is to save her brother. The last thing she expects is to stumble into a dark world and another’s war. But Fox Arada is so much more than a man, and her secret threatens to change the Watchers’ world forever.

My Review:

The watchers are keeping a handle on a heavenly war and along comes Jubilee, in a most disconcerting way, to change everything.

Jubilee stumbled into Fox’s room at a hotel while on the run from drug dealers. After he dispatched them, he ends up in trouble with his friend and one of the leaders, Enoch.

Fox has essentially kidnapped Jubliee in order to tend her wounds and protect her. All the while denying the powerful attraction to her. What amazes him most is that she can and does resist everything he suggests. As a human this should have been impossible.

In spite of being kidnapped Jubilee can’t help her attraction to Fox. She wants him, yet needs to get away. Back to her brother who will be in even more danger now.

One of my favorite scenes is right after Fox explains what he is.

“I say it’s a good thing you’re pretty. Because you’re bat-crap crazy,” she said. It was the best she could manage. “I’m not going to tell anyone about those men. You saved my life, and that’s enough for me. I didn’t need the fairy tale.” With trembling hands, she put the teacup aside. ” I want to go home now.”

His expression tightened, and darkness shuttered his eyes. She didn’t have to know him well to read the anger in the compressed line of his lips.

“Did you not hear a word I said?”

“I heard you, and you’re nuts.” She shoved the blanket back and swung her legs out of the bed. It was long past time to go, and, even if the peculiar faith her gut had in him hadn’t wavered one iota through his mad story, she had to question whether her instincts were firing on all cylinders.

“You don’t believe me.”

“No. I don’t. There are no such thing as shifters, much less angels and demons and a war and–“

The world exploded in a shower of sparkles, and all the oxygen seemed to whoosh out of the room and then back again. Where Fox had been sitting, now a red fox stood. The animal was huge and beautiful.

“Oh. My. God.”

What happens next I won’t tell you. It’s big, really big.

Complicated plot twists and hotter than hell sex. It doesn’t get better.

 SummerBlog My Review

Oh how I love this series.  This is Sable and Jared’s story and it couldn’t be more intense if it tried.

Savannah and Felix are coming for their daughter. Sable has made a deal with the Council to destroy her parents and end the escalating war, in exchange for a pardon.

Jared is opposed to this idea but knows he must go with her. She is his fated mate and he must bring her back alive to their son.

Being near each other without restoring the mating bond is painful for both of them. Sable knows how to kill her father, but needs to find Savannah’s weakness to defeat her.

Savannah is searching for Sable and has a new mutant tracker. The question is, does Sable, with Jared, have the magical strength to defeat her.

A fast paced story with lots of emotion and turmoil. I love the way we see the growth of the characters in each progressing story. I look forward to seeing more of this diverse pack.
