The Storm family is known around town as the Storm Corps and they are actually numbered in order of birth Storm 1 etc. These siblings are truly unique in that from their Father (Colonel Storm) to Daughter (Storm 6) they all serve or served in the Marines.

This book is about Storm 5, but we meet all of the Storm siblings five brothers and a sister.

Now Bristol and Roan (Storm 5) have been friends for years, now he’s headed for another deployment, six months God knows where.

A favorite scene is in the excerpt below and occurs when Roan escorts Bristol home after his deployment party. Don’t miss it!

I really loved the way this book documents Bristol’s pregnancy, from the moment she finds out, through each and every decision. The love and caring of the Storm brothers while Roan is deployed plays with the heartstrings, as do the Skype calls with Roan.

A few curves get thrown in with family drama from the Colonel and Bristol’s mother. However, I laughed and cried as these two friends, become lovers and more.

I can’t wait for more of this family and I hope Lori includes their Dad too.

“Whose idea was it to get an apartment on the third floor of a building with no fucking elevator?” she groaned, holding her head.

“If I recall, you wanted this place because of the rooftop deck. Said you could watch the sunrise whenever you wanted like you were on top of the world.”

“Yes, the roof!” Bristol nodded and clapped her hands excitedly. “Let’s go up there and look at the stars.”

“You need to get some sleep, B,” he protested as she pulled him through the small apartment to the stairway he knew led above.

“I will, but we can look at the stars now, then when you’re gone, I’ll think of you every time I look up at them. I’ll know you’re looking at the same stars, thinking of me.”

Roan knew she probably didn’t intend her words to be so sentimental, but the alcohol was acting like a truth serum, and it shut down her inhibitions. She rarely allowed anyone to see this side of her. Following her up the tiny flight of stairs, he was soon seated on a wooden lounge chair, with her between his legs, her back against his chest, his arms wrapped around her to keep her warm.

“See, there’s my favorite, Ursa Major, the Big Bear,” she pointed upwards.

“Isn’t that the Big Dipper?”

“Yes and no. The Big Dipper is part of the Big Bear, but they’re still two different constellations,” she explained. “My dad taught me that when I was tiny.”

Her voice was wistful when she spoke of her recently deceased father, and Roan hugged her tighter. Having lost his own mother to uterine cancer when he was eleven, he sympathized with her pain.

“Roan, how much longer do you think you can take doing these missions?” she asked randomly.

Stunned silent, he could only shrug behind her.

“You’ve been gone more than you’ve been home. Don’t you get lonely?”

“Sure, every Marine gets lonely occasionally, but I’m one of the lucky ones because I get constant contact. You and my family send me packages, letters, and cards, and I can use FaceTime on some missions, Skype on others. There are plenty of guys over there who don’t have access to any of that.”

“Would you stay if they gave you the option?”

Roan tensed and frowned down at the top of her head, “What do you mean?”

“I don’t know. I just hate when you’re gone. My world seems off-kilter somehow.” She sat up abruptly. “I’m like Lucy with no Ethel.”

“Excuse me?” He felt his eyebrow arch in question. “I am no Ethel. If anyone here is Lucy, it’s me.”

“Nah, Lucy was always instigating trouble, and Ethel just went along with it.”

“Which is exactly why I’m the Lucy in this relationship,” Roan laughed.

She shivered, and he tugged her back against him. Instead of resuming their spooned position, she lay sideways against him, her shoulder on his chest, her hands dangerously close to forbidden territory.

“If you’re cold, we should go back downstairs.”

“I don’t want to yet. I like having you all to myself,” she sighed and tipped her face up, the pale moonlight barely lighting her face properly. “Have you ever thought about giving it up? The Marines, I mean?”

“Aw, B, of course, it’s crossed my mind. Every man who’s had to watch a friend die or had to kill someone has second-guessed his career choice, but I was born to be a Marine. Giving it up would be like giving up air. My body just wouldn’t work anymore.”

She nodded, “I figured you would say something like that.”

“I always come back.”

Arc Review of Frost Bitten by Lori King

Frost Bitten
Lori King



Dr. Quinn Jameson has secured his future by immersing himself in his career, but no amount of money in the world can ease his loneliness. Polar bear shifters aren’t pack creatures, but his soul craves more out of life. When a feisty, female tiger shifter begs him for help, he’s unable to resist and finds himself embroiled in a dangerous situation.

Aubrey Celine is in a bad spot. Pregnant and on the run, she’s out of options until she wakes up in the hospital under the care of a delicious-looking Doctor. Can she trust another man after what her ex has put her through? Or has her heart frozen solid?

In the midst of an epic blizzard, these two strangers must rely on each other to stay alive, but every time they’re alone, the heat between them could melt the ice caps. How far will they go to avoid getting frost bite?


KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo


If you love shifters as much as I do, you will love this book. You don’t see a lot of cross between species other than human/shifter so this was a nice change.

Quinn is trying to be professional, but he is stunned and confused at least in the beginning, by his instant attraction to Aubrey.

Aubrey feels safe for the first time in a long time. Being held prisoner to provide the Lion Alpha Alex a liger offspring has taken a toll on her.

Now, Alex is not pleased that Aubrey has run off. Tracking her leads him to an initial confrontation he wasn’t quite expecting.

With the certainty that Aubrey is his mate Quinn travels with her to his family where he will have backup to protect her.

This book is full of love, action and plenty of heart felt sizzling. I hope Lori is considering making this a series.

Keep reading for an excerpt which is one of my favorite scenes.

“All set. Your friend is currently searching the neighborhood for his runaway fiancée; he believes you went AWOL, against medical advice,” he explained as he started the ignition. “Stay down a little longer if you don’t want to be spotted.”

Aubrey did as she was told, hunching down on the buttery-soft bench seat with only the car’s luxurious interior and one delicious-smelling man to look at. Trapped in this enclosed space with Dr. Jameson, she became keenly aware of her body’s attraction to him. Damn hormones.

“It’s normal,” he murmured.

“I’m sorry?”

“The arousal. It’s normal during pregnancy. Your hormones are a bit chaotic.” He glanced over at her, and Aubrey felt her face heat up. “I just didn’t want you to be embarrassed about it.”

“Well, you majorly failed at that, Doc,” she grumbled.

“My name is Quinn. Considering I just helped you escape a dastardly villain, I think we should be on first name terms.” Several more minutes passed before he spoke again.

“We just crossed the river, so you should be okay to sit up now,” he instructed, turning the car off the main road.

“Where are we going?” Aubrey struggled to get her bearings in an unfamiliar part of the city.

“My house.” He looked her way again and shifted the gears flawlessly. “Unless you have another destination in mind?”

“I didn’t have any destination in mind. I just had to get out. Honestly, I didn’t even pause to consider the risk of leaving when I saw my opening. I just ran,” her voice cracked, and she swallowed the lump in her throat. She had no idea where the out of character streak of fearlessness had come from. Alex had been threatening her the entire time he’d held her captive, and until the moment she’d noticed the lock wasn’t secured, she’d never even seriously considered making an escape attempt.

“I know who you’re running from, but what I don’t understand is why? What did this guy, Alex, do to you?”

“He kidnapped me.”

Winter Blog Review

Payton has always been strong, a Marine serving her country was all she had thought of being. Now injured and scarred, suffering from PTSD flashbacks, she can’t see what her future holds. On the suggestion of her doctors and pretty much given a ultimatum she heads to Crawley Creek Ranch, Here she will be under the care of a PTSD specialist who will guide her to the tools she needs to build a future. On of these tools is not a tool at all but a beautiful service dog. One problem Payton has never owned a pet of any kind, so while agreeing she needs this animal she is anxious over having one.

This is a favorite scene when she goes to pick up her dog.

Payton took the leash and stared at her new companion for several minutes, unsure what to do from here. Was there a command she should use? Did the dog just know what she was thinking or did she need to tell it? Did it understand English? It was an Australian Shepherd, so surely it understood English. Oh, good lord, what if she needed to fake an Australian accent?

Panic filled her chest again, and she began to tremble. There was no way she could handle this. She had no idea what she was doing, and no interest in learning.

Next to her, the dog rose to all fours and cocked its head giving her a curious look. Just the dog’s interest in her made her slightly queasy. Was he looking at her like that because he liked her, or was he planning an attack?

The more she let her fears about her new pet get into her head the more physically ill she became, and her body took over. Her mind going completely blank as she collapsed in a heap on the floor of the veterinarian’s office.

Voices echoed around her, and she could feel something wet on her hand. Had she managed to hurt herself? Maybe the leash had cut her skin when she fell?

“Payton? Can you open your eyes?”

She knew that voice. Dr. Sexy.

Her eyes opened slightly and focused on the smiling face of Luke Gillian.

“That’s a good girl. A little wider now and I can check your pupils. Did you hit your head?”

His question only caused more confusion. She didn’t recall falling, how would she know if she hit her head? When she tried to lift her hand to check, it caught on something, and an animal whined. Jerking her head in the direction of the dog, she inhaled sharply when the whole world spun for a second.

“Easy there. Looks like you hit your head pretty hard. I’m going to take you into the back and check you over, okay?” Luke’s arms slid underneath her, and before Payton could agree or disagree he was lifting her off the floor in his strong grip.

Her arm tugged hard, and she realized the leash was still attached to her wrist. Twisting her hand, she tried to release it, and Luke chuckled.

“Don’t worry, he’ll follow along.”

To her surprise the dog didn’t balk once. He followed Luke as he carried her through the door into the back of the clinic and set her up on a high counter top. She couldn’t shake off the physical interest in him, especially with his biceps flexing like that around her and in front of her. The man was gorgeous.

“I’m just going to do a few simple checks, nothing invasive. I just want to know if we need to call an ambulance. Do you know where you are?”

“Vet’s office.”

“Good, and do you remember what brought you here?” Her eyes shot to the colorful dog who sat nearby watching their interaction.


“Right, your new dog. And why did you get a new dog?”

“Dr. Hall made me.” Her response seemed to catch Luke off guard and he hesitated before answering. “Okay. Can you tell me if you hurt anywhere?”

“No, I’m perfect.”

“Yeah, you are…”

This time it was her giving him a surprised look. What did he mean by that? Before she could question him, he was shining a small light in her eyes, and running his large hand over the back of her head. She winced when he pressed on a tender spot.

“I think you got lucky. If you do have a concussion, it’s mild. I’m not sure you should be alone though. Do you have someone who can stay with you?”

“Uh, there are dozens of people living at Crawley Creek. I’m never really alone.” She grumbled.

“So, you’re living in the big house?” he asked.

“No, I have a cabin.”

“And a roommate? Boyfriend?”

She shook her head. Luke sighed heavily. “The way I see it you have three options. One, I can call Drannon and request someone stay with you tonight in your cabin—”

She shook her head, fighting the automatic urge to vomit.
“Option two, I call an ambulance and you spend the night at the hospital for observation.”

Wrinkling her nose in disgust she glared at him, “What’s option three?”

“Come home with me.”
Lori King. Paw Prints on Her Heart: Crawley Creek 7 (Kindle Locations 384-420)

While option 3 wasn’t the choice she would have made on her own, it was the best of the ones Luke was offering.While the relationship between Luke and his son Ricky is strained at times, Payton’s presence seems to ease some of it.

I loved the way Payton gradually adjusts to having Chinook. The slow but intense relationship with Luke, Ricky’s issues with school and the rules laid down by his father all combine to help Payton realize what she can have. Add in a manhunt for the serial killer that is plaguing the area and you have an exciting and suspenseful read.

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

Lori Hammond wanted for nothing. As the only heir to her family fortune she’d learned at a young age she only need ask for whatever she desired. All the money in the world hadn’t gotten her the one thing in life that she’d wanted most, Kevin Preston.

As the head of The Gilpin Search and Rescue Team, Kevin knows the dangers that a Colorado blizzard can bring. And with one looming closer to their patch of the Rocky Mountains he and his team prepare for the worst winter storm to hit their county in decades.

Hearing of the blizzard, Lori concocts a scheme to get exactly what she wants. But, will her plan be the thing that brings them together? Or will the rewards not be worth the risk as their very survival hangs in the balance?

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Kevin has just come into the station of The Gilpin Search and Rescue Team when a call comes in that a car was off the road but the driver was gone with no clue as to the direction they traveled. Unfortunately for Kevin it was his ex Lori’s car. In spite of the many break-ups he really did still love her, he just wished she’d grow up and be more responsible.

Lori had yet another plan to get back together with Kevin, this one would work. At least she hoped it would. Traveling in a blizzard to her parent’s cabin in the Rockies probably wasn’t the smartest idea she’d ever had and having her car go off the road was not in her plans. Since she was close to the cabin she decided to walk it. Still not thinking…

These two have a lot of communicating to do. Getting near frozen is not a way to get points from her rescuer ex-boyfriend.

Her demands for attention and for him to stop working so much is what caused their break-up. Now as the recipient of his skills perhaps she will finally understand why he does what he does.

A tense read and lots of misunderstandings coming to light. What better place to work things out than a cabin in the middle of a blizzard.

A client she discovers spooning her from behind when she wakes up in his bed! Reed finds Mason charming, tempting and hot!

An early snowstorm dumps an irresistible woman at Mason Tate’s door. As beautiful and enticing as he finds her, career focused Mason doesn’t do entanglements of any type.

At least that was the plan. Until that kiss.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Pulled from the home she was renovating to travel to NY to do a walk through and estimate on a project for a friend of her father’s nephew. Reed finds herself driving through a blizzard. Knocked unconscious when her car jolts over something in the road, Reed doesn’t remember hitting the tree.

It was sheer luck that Mason saw the car’s headlights as the car careened off the road. When he discovers it’s Reed Hamilton and that he is a she he is both stunned and attracted. He scolds himself for such thoughts when she needs to be warmed up and checked for any injuries.

Neither Reed nor Mason desire more than a casual fling but somehow they both know this is more than that.

This is a fun, flirty and sensuous read. I was laughing out loud at where my thoughts went in the opening chapter.  This is a must read!

Winter Blog ReviewSm

When Sheriff Lance Wingham answers the call of a motor vehicle accident he never expected the scene he came upon. In a ditch was a man holding a gun to the woman’s head.  At Lance’s approach he dropped the woman and ran off.

The woman lost consciousness before he could speak with her and he only scented fresh blood from her nose and mouth, she had other injuries though and he needed to get her out of the cold, somewhere safe and treated quickly. The broken and battered woman in his arms is his mate.

As Alpha he sent his trackers off after the man and meets the doctor at his home. When she wakes, she knows she can’t stay but she finds herself very attracted to the protective sheriff.

I really love shifters and this one delivers. Lance and his pack are awesome. Amity’s ex, Javier leads us on a merry chase. Action packed and so hot it will melt your kindle. Oh, and you’ll probably need a tissue or two with this one as well.
