Rachel Fortier is a much sought-after expert when it comes to exotic planets—especially the deadly kind. So when she’s hired by Earth Fleet’s most respected scientist to join a mission to the tightly closed planet Harp, it’s a dream come true. Until she discovers their mission is to capture shifters and sell them to the Military.

 

Shifter Aidan Devlin is on patrol far from his clan when he sees a shuttlecraft landing where it definitely shouldn’t be. As the invaders emerge, he’s surprised to see a lone lovely woman, who doesn’t seem to belong. But when he’s captured and put in a cage, he has no one but her to help him escape.

 

Drawn together by a hunger they can’t resist, and desperate to discover who betrayed Harp, Aidan and Rachel first have to survive a deadly journey to the city. But once there, they find themselves confronted by a conspiracy that goes even deeper. Because Harp is harboring a traitor. And he’s willing to destroy their world—and everything in it—to get what he wants.

Though his methods may be rough, when it comes to protecting what’s his, Russian vor Sergei Petrovyh’s heart is always in the right place. That’s never been more true than when the gorgeous Evette Labadie asks him for a job. He knows enough to keep his hands off someone as beloved by the locals as Evie, but there’s something about her that calls to him—no matter how badly he burns to make her his.

 

Don’t think Evie hasn’t noticed the powerful Russian mafia boss who makes her favorite diner a regular stop. How can she not? He’s as hot as his reputation is dangerous. But everyone in her struggling New Orleans neighborhood knows he’s the man to turn to. And right now she needs money to get her son out of trouble.

 

Her other needs—needs she knows damn well Sergei can more than satisfy—will have to wait.

 

Evie soon finds herself playing Cinderella to a man who, despite what people believe, is definitely more prince than villain. She can’t help falling deeper in love with each passing day. But when a turf war between Sergei and a rival brings violence to her doorstep, Evie must come to grips with loving a man who will do anything to defend her…or walk away from her best chance at a happily-ever-after of her very own.

Review! Mad Panther (Alien Guardians of Earth #2) Donna McDonald!

 

 

I am going to check in with Dr. Sugar Jennings to find out what's been happening with her Bad Panther, lately. Enjoy and don't forget to add MAD PANTHER by Donna McDonald to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

 

Sugar left on sentient blade business. She came home to a very mad panther.

 

When the sentient blade sends her on a rescue mission, Dr. Sugar Jennings sneaks out of her Bad Panther’s bed without saying goodbye. Why? Because a woman’s got to do what she’s got to do.

 

Okay, not really. Sugar’s more of a straight forward kind of person who would have preferred having the freaking fight to all the subterfuge. Axel’s father, Rodu—a fellow blade host and her mentor—says asking forgiveness later is far better than asking for permission which she’s never going to get.

 

Sugar doesn’t understand why her alien panther shifter slash next-in-line for the Lyran throne mate is all up in her sentient blade business. She thinks Rodu should have done a better job teaching his thick-headed son about the concept of maintaining some personal space while in a relationship.

 

Sugar’s blade business turns out to be saving another sentient blade host. This one is a silver-spooned, cocky kid fresh out of college whose ineptitude and negative attitude makes Sugar look like the best blade host ever selected. The younger man is amusing and adorable but also a big pain in everyone’s rear, especially her new alien-sister-in-law’s. But like it or not, the kid is the host of the other Protector blade which means he’s Sugar’s counterpart. She has to tolerate him and keep him alive if she can.

 

Honestly? All this blade drama is starting to wear on Sugar’s last nerve. She needs some space to be what she needs to be. Her alien panther isn’t the only one getting mad over the situation.

 

 

 

A woman’s got to do what she’s got to do, so when the sentient blade sends Sugar Jennings on a rescue mission, she sneaks of her Bad Panther’s bed without saying goodbye. The blade’s business turns out to be saving another sentient blade host – who just happens to be a cocky kid fresh out of college and while amusing and adorable, he’s also a bit pain in everyone’s rear. Honestly, all this blade drama is starting to wear on Sugar’s last nerve and her alien panther isn’t the only getting mad over the situation.

 

The second alien panther story has the romance between Sugar and her sexy panther becoming a bit rocky due to all the business the blade has Sugar attending to and her panther’s over protectiveness. And the rest of the family has their hands full with an uprising and one of Sugar’s alien –sister-in-law is having quite the time handling the new sentient blade host that Sugar has brought home with her. So emotions are running high and where it all ends nobody knows which keeps readers quite amused and completely tuned in. 

 

The story is fast paced and has lots of suspense and excitement happening throughout guaranteeing that readers can’t put the book down for fear of missing something. Missions, betrayals, secrets revealed and life changing news are strategically found throughout this book as well which another entertaining and fascinating reason to keep the readers’ eyes glued to the pages.

New Release Review! Ignite (Burning Moon #2) R.K. Close!

 

 

I headed to the mountains of Arizona, where a firefighting wolf shifter is about to discover just how far he is willing to go to protect  a feisty vampire! Enjoy and don't forget to add IGNITE by R.K. Close to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Hiding in plain sight was easy…until the vampires came to town.

 

In a small college town, nestled in the mountains of Arizona, three firefighting brothers struggle to hide their inner beasts; all the while, protecting a community who can never know the truth.

 

Seth McKenzie has a reputation among the ladies and he's proud of it. If only he could stop dreaming about a certain dark-haired vampire, he could get back to having fun. Is he drawn to her because she's forbidden fruit? Maybe, but Seth can't help but believe there is something special about Olivia. There is no denying the way she makes him feel. When Olivia's life is threatened, Seth may be surprised to discover how far he will go to protect the feisty vampire.

 

Olivia is the youngest and most rebellious of the vampire clan who have recently taken up residency in the normally peaceful town. She thought becoming a vampire was the worst thing that could have happened to her—she was wrong.

 

After moving to the small town, and meeting Seth, Flagstaff had begun to feel like home. When an impulsive act of heroism draws the attention of a deadly enemy, Olivia has the chance to save herself, but is she ready to leave the only person who stirs feelings inside her that she thought were lost forever?

 

 

 

He’s has a reputation among the ladies and he’s proud of it, and if Seth McKenzie could stop dreaming about a certain dark-haired vampire, he could get back to have fun. Olivia is the youngest and most rebellious of the vampire clan and she thought that becoming a vampire could was the worst thing that could have happened to her. When an impulsive act of heroism draws the attention of a deadly enemy, Olivia has the chance to save herself, but is ready to leave the only person who stirs feelings insider her.

 

The second book in the ‘Burning Moon’ series has Seth contemplating a relationship with the vampire Olivia, a relationship that is forbidden. This hero and heroine steals the hearts of the readers from the very beginning and the sparks fly in every direction as they dance around the growing attraction that they can’t deny. Lots of friction from both families causes additional emotional turbulence which really makes these characters come alive for the readers. 

 

The plot is fast paced and full of suspense and thrills as Olivia draws attention to herself including the press by performing a daring and heroic rescue and this in turn catches the attention of a deadly enemy who comes to town with the intention of claiming Olivia. Readers don’t want to miss a second of the danger and excitement of this story which also includes some surprising twists to keep readers on their toes.

Creating characters that my readers will fear, fall in love with, despise or cheer for, is what I love most about writing.

 

Ann Rice receives all the credit for my vampire addiction that began in my early twenties. Like so many others, I fell in love with her vampires first.

 

Originally from Kentucky, I’ve lived most of my life in Arizona where I met and married my true love. We were late to the game so we knocked out three ankle-biters in quick succession. We often joke that parenthood saved us from ourselves. Now we need to be saved from parenthood. *just kidding* We love our darling spawn.

 

When I’m not writing, I’m taking care of a busy family, dragging my butt to CrossFit, thinking about my stories or spending time with family and friends. My dream is to sell enough books to hire someone to clean our house and cook our meals. Okay, maybe that’s my family’s dream. I tend to get a little obsessed when I write.

 

I would love the opportunity to pull you into my world of strong independent females, mysterious vampires, noble hunters, hungry werewolves and seductive yet deadly fae. If you like paranormal-romance in a modern-urban setting with plenty of romantic tension, mystery and suspense, then my novels were written for you./

I am headed to a resort for a Christmas wedding where I hope to discover Chynna finding her own happily ever after since she's helped other do so! Enjoy and don't forget to add UNDER THE MISTLETOE by Deborah Cooke to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Chynna has loved and lost…

 

Even though it’s been years, Christmas reminds Chynna of her husband’s death and makes her miss him even more. Attending Lexi and Gabe’s Christmas wedding sounds like a reminder of everything she’s lost, until she’s persuaded to go and share their joy. Once there, a hook-up with Trevor, Gabe’s handsome partner, could be another way to move beyond her grief—and Trevor makes taking that risk more than worthwhile, re-awakening Chynna to sensation and passion.

 

Trevor has never had time for love…

 

He’s always been focussed on building success. But now that Trevor’s financial ambitions are achieved, he’s realized that he has no one to enjoy the rewards with him. His friend Gabe’s wedding makes him aware that he doesn’t want to be alone anymore. Chynna is the most attractive woman he’s met in years and Trevor knows that it will take more one night together to satisfy him. Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for—all he has to do is convince her to take a chance on love again, with him.

 

 

 

Even though it’s been years, Christmas reminds Chynna of what she’s lost and makes her miss her husband even more and attending a Christmas wedding would be another reminder. After being persuaded to go, Chynna decides that a hook-up with Trevor could be a way to move beyond her grief. Always focused on building success, Trevor’s never had time for love. His friend’s wedding makes him aware that he doesn’t want to be alone anymore and Chynna is the woman he’s been waiting for.

 

This wonderful romance is a delightfully cheerful, heartwarming and can put anyone - even Scrooge - in the holiday spirit. This romance has strong, charismatic characters that easily draw readers into their story and the chemistry between Chynna and Trevor sizzles with lots of heat ensuring that resistance is futile.   The story has lots of emotional turbulence that flows from the pages and while some is sad, the story is about healing and opening up one’s heart, which warms the heart as Trevor endeavors to convince Chynna that he’s worth the risk.

 

The plot is steady paced and flows smoothly through a busy time of the year, a wedding and a blizzard which adds some thrilling excitement to the story and that’s not mentioning all the scorching passion of the romance. This charming holiday story has a touch of whimsy and is a perfect one to read by the fire on a cold night and a hot chocolate.

Lets head out to Southern Shifter territory to discover if a dragon shifter can out run her family's obligations. Enjoy and don't forget to add ONE CRAZY WOLF by Eliza Gayle to your shelves! 

 

 

 

 

 

A Wolf and a dragon walk into a bar…Oh hell no. He’s not going there EVER.

 

As the lone sane wolf amidst a pack of intelligence challenged rogues, Simon wonders why he volunteered for this insane mission. That’s the million dollar question.

 

Except he knows exactly why he did it and he can’t hide the truth much longer. Not once he catches the scent of the new girl in town.

 

Holy Shit.

 

She’s one part wet dream, two parts his worst nightmare. Which part do you think is going to win?

 

Kenzie flees Scotland and follows her brother to the Southern mountains of America to escape what her family considers her obligation. Screw that.

 

What she finds instead could bring down her past, present and future.

 

But so what if she’s attracted to a wolf? She’d have to be blind not to notice the blond hotness sitting at the bar filling out a pair of jeans like a boss.

 

It can just be one time, right?

 

RIGHT??!!

 

 

 

He is the only sane wolf among a pack of intelligence challenged rogues, so Simon wonders why he volunteered for this insane mission, except he knows exactly why he did it and he can’t hide the truth much longer…not once he catches the scent of the new girl town. She fled Scotland and followed her brother to the Southern mountains of America to escape what her family considers her obligation but what Kenize finds instead could bring down her past, present and future.

 

This ‘Southern Shifter’ romance is an emotionally gripping read with strong, vivid characters and the hero and heroine have oodles of insane chemistry that makes it obvious that they belong together. But of course, things aren’t so easy, for one is a dragon and one is a wolf and readers can’t help but be intrigued right from the start as this romance rocks everyone’s world including Simon and Kenzie. The heroine has a heartbreaking and valid reason why their mating can’t happen but Simon is a scientist with a heart of gold that makes readers sigh in delight and he’s determined that he will find away.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of thrills and excitement as the relationship between Simon and Kenize is spirited, quite rocky and amusing at times which keeps readers charmed and delighted throughout. Family interventions and desperate times cause drastic measures that also add to the suspense and excitement and readers certainly can’t find a dull moment in this energetic and enchanting read. Quick call Dr. Simon for a cure for the heart palpitations readers are having!

After growing up in the South and dividing my time between Florida and North Carolina, I decided that 2012 would be my year for change. I rented out my house on the East Coast and convinced my family to join me for a wacky trip across the country. Now I write my romance books from a small island in the Pacific Northwest while contemplating our next home renovation project on the fixer upper we bought.

 

When not writing, I'm likely to be found with my nose in a book or sitting in a darkened theater watching the latest blockbuster movie. Unless it's not raining, then I guarantee I'll be outside soaking up the sun or exploring one of the many nearby forests.

 

If you'd like to check out one or more of my books, I'd be tickled pink. I primarily write paranormal shifters (with a little witchy stuff on the side) and steamy contemporary romance under the name E.M. Gayle. I dig reading and writing series, so you'll also find I have several. It's an addiction.

 

I love getting feedback so I look forward to any and all honest reviews as well as recommendations for good books. I am always on the hunt for a new favorite book.

New Release Review! Matriarch by J.M. Davis!

 

 

Today we are going to visit Layla Carson as she comes into her abilities as the Matriarch. Enjoy and don't forget to add MATRIARCH by J.M. Davis to your shelves! 

 

 

 

 

Layla Carson always walks the path her father paved for her. But working in Greater Hope Hospital's research laboratory doesn't bring her joy. However her life shifts into overdrive when she hears a mysterious voice in the lab begging for help. The voice names her the "Matriarch", and she appears destined for greatness, a leader in the animal kingdom and shifter world. But she's hunted by those who want her only for what's within her-extraordinary DNA. She must quickly determine who is friend and who is foe. Including the sexy Roland Stone. Roland's pack is interested in her DNA, but he is drawn to her in a primal way. He watches as she hones her newfound abilities to wage battle against those determined to destroy her. Unleashing her inner beast, she's soon ready to carve her own path. Now he must convince her that he is worthy to walk by her side.

 

 

 

Having always walked the path that her father paved for her, Layla Carson’s life shifts into overdrive when she hears a mysterious voice in the lab begging for help. The voice names her the “Matriarch” and apparently she’s destined for greatness in the animal kingdom and shifter world, but this also makes her the target of many who just want her extraordinary DNA, so she must decide who is friend and who is foe. Including the sexy Roland Stone.

 

A refreshingly different and very engaging shifter romance that gets the adrenaline pumping right from the start. All the characters are compelling, but Layla is the strongest and as the story is about her coming into her destiny, readers can’t help but be drawn to her as she hones her newfound abilities and unleashes them against the ones determined to destroy her. The attraction between Layla and Roland is magnetic and readers can plainly see that they are meant for each other but the story focuses more on the overall plot than on the romance.

 

The story takes place at a fast pace and full of thrilling suspense, exciting events, twists and a betrayal that ensures that the readers never find a dull moment throughout this story. The author has created a fascinating world with some elements that shakes up the shifter world and while readers may feel that some of the events in the story should have been embellished a bit more, the overall story is an exciting read that they just can’t put down.

I work full-time as a zoo curator, so when I'm not running a zoo, I'm trying to tame the one I live in! I have two kids, and a husband who sometimes acts their age. I can usually be found jamming to Elvis Presley tunes, or diligently chipping away at my never-ending 'to be read' pile. I tend to gravitate toward anything paranormal. I love creatures who fly and characters who sprout fur or fangs. Sprinkle some romance and magic into the mix, and I'm a happy girl!
