Alaskan Christmas
A Mistletoe Lodge Novella

Jen Talty

Flynn Wagner sets off to the frozen tundra and the Mistletoe Lodge, prepared for endless stories about her mother. However, nothing can prepare her for coming face to face with the one man she couldn’t get out from under her skin. At the lodge, Colton Granger never expected to find the woman who had changed his life forever in high-heeled boots, a winter coat that wouldn’t keep a person warm, and a killer smile that would soon melt his heart.

This is just another delightful read. I can see how hard it would be for Flynn to take this trip to Alaska without her mother. It was something they were going to do together.

The Mistletoe Lodge is run by her Flynn’s mother’s best friend and there had been a bit of plotting going on. Seems they thought Colton and Flynn would be the perfect couple little did they know these two had something going on they hadn’t let on about.

Plenty of ups and downs, some twists and turns, some sizzle and lots of romance.

Lana and The Laird – Untamed Highlanders Book 3 by Sabrina York

Untamed Highlanders Book 3

LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

Lachlan Sinclair cannot escape his accursed heritage in his Highlands homeland. Somewhat resigned to the fate that destroyed his ancestors, he is prepared to live his life without an heir, without a wife―without love. But when he meets the woman of his dreams in the flesh, the bewitching lass makes him want to throw away his cursed, restrained existence…and unleash the highlander within…

Lana Dounreay has only seen the Duke of Caithness in her dreams as a wild, rugged man, while in reality, his life has been cramped by curses and cravats. He may have forgone his kilt and lost his brogue, but Lana knows that the heart of a true Scotsman beats within his broad, muscular chest. But what plans does the mysterious, passionate Lachlan have in mind for her―and can she convince him that love is stronger than all else?

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

I love this family of strong women and the men they fall for. This book has a bit of overlap but it’s necessary to make this standalone as well as part of the series.

Lachlan Sinclair, Duke of Caithness is plagued by nightmares and visitations from the ghost of his father. He’s returned to Scotland to refurbish his family castle. He expects to die on his thirtieth birthday as have all the Sinclair heirs since the reign of Edward I. The only way to avoid that circumstance is to find the pieces of the MacAlpin Cross, restore it and once again keep it safe. Not that it’s likely since it hasn’t been found over centuries of searching.

Lana Dounreay has been dreaming of the Duke for a very long time, she just doesn’t know who he is. That is until he shows up to issue an ultimatum to her brother-in-law, Alexander Dunnet. Most find Lana to be strange as she talks to ghosts and has visions. However the Duke is more intrigued than put off.

A favorite scene is when they meet in the library after Lana has an unfortunate encounter with the Duke’s man and cousin, Dougal.

“If I have any other problems of that sort, I shall be coming to you–“

Ah, excellent. That was–

“To ask how you would like to dispose of the body.”

Oh, Holy God. He gaped at her, this tiny mite, with delicate bones and a dainty demeanor And ferocity.

“The…ah…body?”

“He is your cousin, is he no’?”

“He is indeed.”

“Then you should be the one to bury him.” At his bemused stare, she added, “‘Tis only fitting.”

“I…ah…you…Are you saying you will…kill him if he touches you again?”

“I will gut him like a fish.” Odd that, how she said it, in the sweetest tone and with a hind of an angelic smile. He had no doubt whatsoever that she would be true to her word.

He made a mental note to warn Dougal. Yes, he was annoying and a trial at times, but Lachlan did not want him gutted. It would be a hell of a mess to clean up.

Against his best intentions, despite his dismay, his lips twitched, and then, in response, hers did as well.

“Things really are different here in Scotland, are they not?”

Her brow arched again. “Are ye just finding this out?” Her tome was dry as dust. He didn’t know why it made him chuckle.

“Women are…fiercer.”

“As are the men.” Her gaze flicked to his cravat.

“For one thing, they doona wear that.” Though she muttered this bit beneath her breath, he heard. Although he suspected he was intended to.

Lachlan glanced soen at the mathematical fall of his snowy cravat and forbore a grimace. “I’ve never really liked them myself.”

“Then why do you wear it?”

He shrugged. “I’m a duke. It’s expected.”

She gaped at him. “‘Tis not manly in the least.”

He sat back. Couldn’t help it. He was blown back by the force of her revulsion. He wasn’t sure why, but a sudden desire scoured him. A formidable need to appear manly and powerful…to her. “And what would be..manly? To you?”

She surveyed his face, his shoulders his chest. “You would look fine in a kilt,” she acceded after a moment.
York, Sabrina. Lana and the Laird (Untamed Highlanders Book 3). Kindle locations (1293-1316). St. Martin’s Press. Kindle Edition.

Their conversation in the library was both interesting and informative for the Duke. However it is the dinner conversation that will have you giggling at Lana’s audacity and snark.

These two are well matched and there is much for the Duke to overcome. There is also the journey to Reay where we meet up with Susana, Andrew and their adorable little imp.

Plenty of suspense, drama and action as the Duke realizes who he can in fact trust even as the heat rises between him and Lana.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Winter Blog Blurb

Scotland, 1813

A SCANDALOUS TEMPTATION

Andrew Lochlannach is famous for his conquests, on and off the battlefield. When a fellow warrior challenges him to a kissing contest, he wastes no time in planting his lips on ninety-nine lovely lasses-an impressive feat of seduction that gets him banished to the hinterlands. Still, Andrew has no regrets about his exploits-especially his embrace with the most beguiling woman he’s ever met…

AN UNDENIABLE PASSION

With flaming red hair and a temper to match, Susana is not some innocent farmgirl who gives herself over easily to a man, even one as ruggedly handsome as Andrew. The wicked Scot may have won a kiss from the headstrong beauty in a moment of mutual desire, but Susana refuses to be just another one of his conquests. Andrew must convince the fiery lass that even though he is not playing a game, losing her is not an option…

Winter Blog Review

I am loving this Highland Series, the women are strong the men are impossible and the bad guys are deliciously evil.

Andrew is Alexander’s brother and he is sent off when he’s caught kissing Lana. Hannah wants him away from her little sister. Fortunately a message of escalating trouble at Reay has Alexander sending him off to protect the lands and Hannah’s family there. That family includes her sister Susana and her daughter.

Andrew has loved and lost, he fell for a beauty named Mairi from Reay long ago while in Perth. Since then he’s not been interested, well except for kissing them. He has a bet with his friend Hamish to kiss a hundred women and Lana was number ninety-nine.

Andrew’s first meeting with Susana doesn’t go very well at all. He sees what he assumes is a farmer being relieved of a cow and figures he’d apprehend the little thief.

This is a favorite scene.

She gored him with a furious glare. “What the hell are you doing here?”

“Isn’t it obvious?”

She crossed her arms. “Not precisely.”

“Protecting Reay cattle from thieves.”

He expression soured. “Really?”

“Aye.”

“You’re not doing a very good job at it.”

“I caught you.”

She leaned in, her expression fierce. “What on earth made you think I was a cattle thief?”

“You came barreling out of the woods, alone, brandishing a weapon on an unarmed farmer–“

“He wansa unarmed. And he wasna a farmer. That man has been stealing our cattle for weeks–“

Andrew gulped and set his teeth. “It was only natural to assume you were stealing the cow.:

“How can I steal my own cow?”

Your cow?”

“Of course it’s my cow, you dolt.”

“The cow belongs to Magnus Dounreay.”

She growled at him. Growled. “I am his daughter.”

Andrew froze. Fook/ This was Hannah’s sister? But then now that she mentioned it, there was a familiarity about her. Hannah had the same frown. He was certain of it. He’d seen it often enough.

“We’ve been tracking the thief for days.” She glanced over at the spot where the farmer had been. “And look what you’ve done. After all that work finding the blighter, you let him go.”

“He left the cow,” Andrew offered.

It didn’t help.

She poked him with a sharp finger. He felt it, even through his leather breastplate. “You, sir, are a nuisance. Keep away from me.”

Keep away from her? Not a chance. In fact, all of a sudden his assignment in Reay looked all the more intriguing. Andrew tipped his head to the side and grinned at her. “I canna do that,” he said.

“And why not?”

He waved at the troop of men just joining Hamish on the crest of the hill. “Because we’ve been sent here by the Laird of Dunnet to oversee the defenses of Reay.” His grin broadened as her dismay blossomed. “In fact, I’ll be here for quite some time.”
York, Sabrina. Susana and the Scot (Untamed Highlanders Book 2) (Kindle Locations. 200-220). St. Martin’s Press. Kindle Edition.

Now cattle isn’t the only issue, and things get interesting really fast.

One thing I absolutely noticed was the similarities between Susana’s daughter, Isobel, and Andrew. The hair, the eyes, are men always so blind? Of course Susana’s father put two and two together from the start, but Andrew, well…just blind I guess. I spent lots of time giggling at all his interactions with the little imp.

Stafford, having aligned with Scrabster to harass those at Reay, is escalating. With rumors of the Duke of Caithness returning and requiring some devastating changes tensions quickly rise.

Poisoning, kidnapping, a blossoming romance, a little hellion and so much more will have you turning pages until you finish.

Hannah and the Highlander
Untamed Highlanders Book 1
By

Winter Blog Blurb

Highlanders are her weakness.

Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent-and spectacularly handsome-Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?

Love is the most powerful weapon of all.

Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land-without mercy-and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her-body and soul…in Hannah and the Highlander.

Winter Blog Review

Hannah is no simpering woman, she’s headstrong, opinionated and although she doesn’t realize it beautiful.

She first sees Alexander as he competes in the caber toss at a neighboring barony, however she falls for him when he saves her from one of her overzealous suitors Niall. However when he doesn’t introduce himself and walks away from her kiss, she dismisses any possibility of more.

Now Alexander has always had an issue with speaking when he gets nervous, and that plagued him when Hannah introduced herself. One thing he knows is that he is going to offer for her hand and pray she accepts.

After another close encounter with Niall, Hannah agrees to marry Alexander, not believing he wants anything more than her lands. She is in for a surprise, and so is he.

This is a favorite scene right before the wedding.

Egads. She wants to speak with him before the wedding…

The door opened immediately, as though she’d been standing there waiting. At the sight of her, his heart stalled and his throat tightened. She had this effect on him each and every time he saw her. God, she was so beautiful.

Her eyes widened, as though she was surprised to see him, which befuddled him, because she’d asked him to come. Then her gaze raked him. He liked to think that look in her eye was a glimmer of appreciation. “Dunnet,” she said. “You’re . . . dressed.”

Aye. Dressed for a wedding. He couldn’t help but notice she was not.

“Lady . . . Hannah.” He bowed. “You wanted to . . . talk?”

She nodded briskly and opened the door wider, stepping back to allow him to enter. He did so and closed the door behind him. The click was deafening. It was not lost on him that he was in her bedchambers. His gaze flicked to the bed. It was slightly rumpled. That made him feel slightly rumpled as well.

This was not the time for his passion to rise.

It did.

“Thank you for coming,” she said, turning away to pace. “I know you are prepared to marry . . . forthwith.” He had no idea why she emphasized the word as she did. “But before we exchange our vows, I have some things that I need to say.”

He nodded, even as relief gushed through him.

She hadn’t changed her mind.

And if she had things to say, he should probably stay silent. And listen.

“You and I need to have an understanding.”

“An . . . understanding?”

“Aye.” His hope was supplanted by a hint of disappointment when she said in a very businesslike tone, “We both know this is a marriage of convenience.”

His gaze snapped to her face. Ernest though her expression was, it lacked the dreamy, romantic tinge a groom might hope for. In fact, she set her chin and shot him a very unromantic glance.

A marriage of convenience? A cold, heartless, distant union? Denial howled. Suddenly, to his surprise, he found he wanted something very different. He longed to respond, to cry out his dissent, but his throat locked.

“There is no reason to pretend this is something other than it is. I agreed to marry you because Dounreay needs your protection and you agreed to marry me for my lands. We are marrying for no other reason. Aye. I understand that. We understand that.”

Nae. We understood nothing of the sort. There was another reason he was determined to marry her, did she but realize.

He wanted her.

“Regardless, Dunnet, my wish is for a peaceful union.”

Peaceful. Aye. Peaceful was good.

“I should like for us to work together as a team. In partnership.”

Aye. He had a partnership in mind. . . .

“If I’m going to pledge myself to a man forever, I need to know that he will respect me. That he will honor my wishes. I need to know he will take my counsel into account.” She fixed Alexander with a steady gaze, as though she expected a response. So he nodded.

She was so beautiful, so earnest. So tantalizing.

He stepped closer, intent on his target.

Her eyes widened as he neared. Her hand on his chest stalled his approach and her brow wrinkled. Her gaze flicked to his mouth and her tongue peeped out, wetting her lips, igniting a flame in his belly. With great effort, she ripped her gaze away and frowned. “Do you agree to my terms?” she asked.

He cupped her cheek and angled her head up. Her breath caught. Her features froze as she realized his intent. “Aye,” he said. “Aye.” And then he did what he’d been thinking about for weeks. What he’d been obsessing over all day. He kissed her.

And it was glorious.
York, Sabrina. Hannah and the Highlander (Untamed Highlanders) (pp. 81-83). St. Martin’s Press. Kindle Edition.

Alexander has no clue about Hannah, but as things start changing in their world, they also get to know one another. Not always an easy task when he keeps writing her notes instead of talking.

Feuds, fun, laughter, tears, ghosts and sizzling romance will have you turning the pages to see what happens next.

Kindle Worlds is Closing! Here are some of my favorite worlds and Authors within them!


 

Kindle Worlds will be gone forever
July 16th 2018!

This deeply saddens me, I have found many new to me authors by seeing them in these worlds.

It was always a place to find quick, inexpensive reads that blended with another author’s characters and settings.

I have heard that some of the World owners are going to continue them on their own and some will need to have an acknowledgement of the originating series before republishing. Yet others may go away completely. For some worlds no decisions have made as to their fate, as this news just broke.

This is a response to a reader friend from Amazon:

For five years, Kindle Worlds has been thriving, engaging writers and readers who enjoy writing in one another’s worlds, and we’re proud of the work we’ve done together. While we are closing Kindle Worlds, Amazon is constantly innovating on behalf of our authors and readers, and we look forward to continuing to do so.

As of May 17th, Kindle Worlds will no longer be accepting new submissions. Previously published Kindle Worlds stories will no longer be available for sale on Amazon.com on or around July 16th. The Kindle Worlds website will be closed on August 29th.

Rest assured previously purchased or borrowed Kindle Worlds stories will remain unaffected.

With that in mind and since the time is short until they are gone, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Worlds and Authors from them. I hope you will take the time to browse through these links and possibly enjoy them as much as I have.

I put the link I have for the main world and then covers that link to Amazon for individual authors within those worlds that I have read and enjoyed.

I would also like to thank the owners of the worlds that so many wonderful authors wanted to play in, Elle James, Susan Stoker, Paige Tyler, Desiree Holt, Sable Hunter, Millie Taiden, Carly Phillips, Robyn Peterman, Cat Johnson, Eliza Gayle, Erin Nicholas, and Roxanne St.Claire.

HAPPY READING!!!

Elite Elements

Book Three in the Elite Warriors Series

For most of their lives they’ve lived in the shadows, pulled from every nation and background, united by one common cause—an all-consuming hatred of Red Wolf. The unquenchable desire to rid the world of his very existence fuels them, drives them.

These men and women pulled the fallen Elite from the snow-covered wreckage of Operation Phoenix years ago. To some they’re called saviors. To others they’re called traitors.

As Red Wolf’s power grows, the end game they’ve sacrificed everything for may destroy them all. Or just maybe they’ll finally find the peace they’ve been hunting for.

Revenge is their salvation but is there enough humanity left inside them to save?

A new end. A new beginning. Elite Elements.

Winter Blog Blurbs and Reviews

As I begin these reviews I want to thank the wonderful authors for bringing this amazing story to life. I have fallen in love with each of the characters as they were revealed and watched as they overcome much adversity to find love and revenge for past losses.

At the end of the last book, seven more characters were unveiled as it were. These are their stories of how they became involved and how they now contribute to the end of Red Wolf.


Satisfying SiliconVirginia Nelson
silicon

Lady Dead may be number five on his hit list, but she trusts that Silicon will come for her. Save her or kill her… either way, it’ll be a hot ride.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

The first book opens in the present where Emmaline is awaiting her fate. Restrained and suspended she is hoping Silicon has quickly made it through his kill list and will come for her.

Then we go to her past, one which was not very pleasant, well except for the fact she became part of a gun-running syndicate family. Adopted as their child for her negotiating skills.

Ryan Anderson aka Silicon, has yet another persona, that of Crisis as Emmaline aka Lady Death knows him. An arms dealer making purchases from her to discover who exactly she is working for. For Crisis that is all there is, for Silicon there is another issue. He is attracted to her in a way he has never been with any other woman.

Timing is critical in this story, much is happening behind the scenes and with a good portion of her adopted family dead, Emmaline has only Crisis to turn to. Whether he kills her or not is still up in the air. Yes, the pun is intended.

Lots of action, interesting twist with the attraction between them and so much more.

Here is a favorite quote:
“Strip. I like my men naked and submissive. Can you be submissive, choir boy?”
Virginia Nelson. Elite Elements (Kindle Location 529). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

I hope you will enjoy meeting Silicon and Emmaline as much as I did. You will not be able to stop reading.

Cesium’s CaptureSabrina York
cesium

The mission is all that matters…until he meets her.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Jason “Coop” Cooper AKA Cesium is following Ming Kow. He is intrigued by his companion with her ponytail swinging. He needs to get to the SOB’s mainframe and copy all the goodies he knows is on there.

Natalia Goodinov Petrova is Ming’s assistant, she thinks she is being followed and is determined to find out why and by whom. Well the answers are going to surprise them both.

Natalia tries to convince Coop not to go after the information he wants to no avail.

A favorite quote:
Seriously? He went back for a necklace?
Sabrina York. Elite Elements (Kindle Locations 1781-1782). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

Oh the complications, and the surprises in store for them. I loved every second of this and lets just say this couple sizzles off the pages.

Vibranium’s TruthAnna Alexander
vibranium

It’s not the size of the gun that makes a warrior, but the strength of her convictions.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Evan “Vibranium” Christopher hated listening to and seeing Federoff and his crony manhandling a young girl. He was there to get information in the form of a picture. Following the young girl into the restroom where she had escaped for a few moments of peace, he was able to get a photo of the tattoo on the inside of her thigh. The tattoo would give the location of Demetriu Sandoval’s operation and bring them another step closer to Red Wolf.

Miho has her own vendetta, she wants revenge for everything that has happened to her since she was eight years old. Her revenge throws a monkey wrench into Evan’s mission.

A favorite quote.
Because you’re the insane one, that’s why.
Anna Alexander. Elite Elements (Kindle Location 2901). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

This step towards the end of Red Wolf is intense and has some OMG moments as they follow their prey to a seedier sex club. However the attraction between Evan and Miho is a truer form and is as sweet as it is hot.

Palladium’s ConfessionSaranna DeWylde
paladium-teaser

A defrocked priest and his benediction of death are no match for this BBW on a mission.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Hekate Bakas has a problem, her Uncle Talbot has decided that she should be with Viktor Semion, a Ukrainian associate of his. He wants control of the shipping business left to her by her father and she has no intention of ever letting her Uncle have any part of it. She needs to take him down, but she’s sure she will end up dead in the process.

Elite has some surprises for Talbot. I confess I enjoyed seeing John ‘Mercury’ Thrace in action again as a prelude to Wen “Palladium” Theophanes’ Mission.

Instead of dying, Hecate ends up with Wen and the plot thickens as he falls for this strong woman.

A favorite quote.
“But you didn’t. You saved me. I’d say you’re my best bet. I’m a practical sort of woman.”
Saranna DeWylde. Elite Elements (Kindle Locations 4400-4401). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

I kind of felt sorry for Wen, he’s not used to any of the things he’s feeling. Hekate is a match for him in so many ways.

Lots of action in this one as we get yet another step closer to Red Wolf.

Francium’s ChanceRebecca Royce
francium-teaser

Just because he’s on the right side of the fight doesn’t mean she can trust him.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

A big step in taking down any organization is finances. That is Russell “Francium” Burke’s Mission. While they had already been manipulating things so money was being heavily lost. The position they now had Remington Reagan, Red Wolf’s CFO, in was becoming critical and Russell was positioning himself to be his replacement.

Lara London-Reagan was trapped in a loveless marriage, held captive by actions she confessed to her husband before they were married. She’d about reached the end of her rope when she caught their new neighbor watching them having sex.

One thing about all these books is the strength of the women, Lara is no exception and she puts herself at great risk.

A favorite quote.
“I’m not a wilting flower. I mean, I have been, but before that I wasn’t. I was the kind of woman who knew how to get things done.”
Rebecca Royce. Elite Elements (Kindle Locations 5477-5478). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

I do love the ways the Elite crew persuade co-operation. Again this will cause a change in the initial plans but hey, whatever works.

More surprises and hold your breath moments as Lara and Russell explore their relationship. This one with a little kink.

Asset: ArsenicHeather Long
arsenic

Arsenic is playing a dangerous game, but one with hefty payout—Red Wolf’s head on a platter.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Addison “Arsenic” Leeds has gone dark making the Elite crew wonder if she has been turned, killed or too deep in to make contact.Tasked with getting rid of the leaks in Elite’s ranks she does what she must to protect her team.

When she’s headed into trouble she contacts the one person outside of the Elite she can trust. Sam Reese, the man she didn’t kill but probably should have.

While the quote used in the teaser is definitely a favorite, I liked this one too.
“No, I was being factual. You’re not a dog. Dogs are loyal.”
Long. Elite Elements (Kindle Locations 6933-6934). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

These two team up to take down yet another Red Wolf crony and in the process rediscover themselves through barbs, sex and a mutual desire for revenge.

Another action filled installment with sizzling sex and a past to resolve. This one even has some family issues within the Elite ranks.

Kryptonite’s OxygenJennifer Kacey
kryptonite

To rid the world of the deadliest wolf a broken girl must trust her kryptonite.

Winter Blog ReviewSm

Clark “Kryptonite” Leeds made a promise to Gold as he lay dying in Moscow at end of Operation Phoenix, the mission that gave birth to the Elite Warriors. His promise was to find and protect Gold’s sister Catarina. She had put herself into the hands of Red Wolf to protect her brother.

As the final mission approaches all the teams are involved. Metal, Ghosts and Element combine for the final takedown. First though they had to get Red Wolf’s code book, a book he always carries with him. The key to all the cyphers in their possession.

This one had me crying and laughing and holding my breath as Kryptonite does his very best to diagnose and fix Catarina.

A favorite quote.
He’d never wanted anything more. To be her Superman.
Jennifer Kacey. Elite Elements (Kindle Locations 9479-9480). Never Settle Publishing, LLC.

Knowing that he has fallen in love with her just from the stories Gold had told him, only makes his task more difficult. Is Catarina truly with Red Wolf or is she merely his prisoner? More importantly does it even matter at this point?

A Surprise for all as this awesome tale comes to a close. Irecommend you read the entire series if you haven’t already. This truly is epic!
