Release Day Review! The Deception (Maxiumu Security #2) Kat Martin!

 

 

 

Good Morning Readers! Today, I am returning to the offices of Maximum Security where one woman's search for answers takes her to a place she never wanted to go. Enjoy and don't forget to add THE DECEPTION by Kat Martin to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

“Fans of romantic suspense won’t be able to put this book down until the final page is turned.”—Publishers Weekly on The Deception 

 

 

When missing turns to murdered, one woman's search for answers will take her to a place she never wanted to go… 

 

After searching for her sister for two long years, Kate Gallagher is devastated when she’s called to the morgue to identify Chrissy’s body, the runaway teen the victim of a brutal attack. Guilt and grief send Kate into a tailspin. She failed Chrissy once…she won’t do it again. Even if finding her sister’s killer means following a lethal bounty hunter into the heart of darkness, placing both their lives in danger. 

 

Working at Maximum Security has taken Jason Maddox down some dangerous paths, but never for a client he’s so drawn to, or for a case so monstrous. As clues lead them deeper into the city’s underbelly, connections to human trafficking draw them closer and closer to peril, but even Jase’s warnings can’t convince Kate to walk away. As the deadly operation puts a target on their backs, they’ll have to decide what matters most: the truth…or their lives. 

 

 

 

She searched for two long years, but now Kate Gallagher has been called to the morgue to identify her sister’s body. Guilt and grief send Kate into a tailspin but she won’t fail her sister again, even if finding her sister’s killer means following a lethal bounty hunter into the heart of darkness, placing both their lives in danger. Jason Maddox has been down some dangerous paths before, but never for a client he’s so drawn to, or for a case so monstrous. The deeper into the city’s underbelly they go, the deadlier the operation becomes, placing a target on the backs and they will have to decide what’s matters most…the truth or their lives.

 

This ‘Maximum Security’ suspense story is an intense, emotionally gripping and riveting tale. The characters stand out and speak to readers as they dive deeper and deeper into a world of horror while dealing their vivid sizzling chemistry and magnetic attraction. The romance between them is full of danger and emotional angst due to situation, but it is obvious to readers that these two are belong together and readers can’t help but become caught up in their story as they empathize with what they are going through. 

 

The story is set at a steady pace with the suspense building continuously and some fast paced and adrenaline pumping excitement happening as Jason and Kate’s mission draws them closer and closer to the answers they seek and the target on their back becomes exponentially more deadly. Lots of unexpected twists keeps readers on the edge and the heroine of the story is strong with some surprising attitudes that makes her a perfect fit for a lethal bounty hunter. Once again, the author has given her fans a juicy, gut clenching and riveting suspense that they can take their eyes off of.

Release Day Review! Claiming Sarah (Ace Security #5) Susan Stoker

 

 

 

Hello Again, Readers! Today I am visiting Ace Security and their newest client, Sarah Butler, who's been getting intimate gifts from a man she barely knows! Enjoy and don't forget to add CLAIMING SARAH by Susan Stoker to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

All defenses are down in the fifth Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker.

 

Sarah Butler isn’t flattered. She’s angry and unnerved. She’s been getting intimate gifts from a man she barely knows. Nothing threatening yet, but there’s just a weird vibe she can’t ignore. Her recourse is Ace Security. Their solution: self-defense lessons at Rock Hard Gym with a personal, hands-on instructor. One look at the bearded, tattooed, green-eyed alpha is enough to take Sarah’s breath away.

 

Cole Johnson is definitely the man for the job. He’s eager to train her. Eager to get closer. And when it comes to Sarah’s instincts, Cole knows she’s not imagining things. He’s also not imagining the intense attraction between them—and his desire to protect her is growing. But so are Sarah’s fears, the worst of which come true when she disappears.

 

Enlisting the help of Ace Security, Cole will stop at nothing to find the love of his life…before she vanishes forever. 

 

 

 

She’s been getting intimate gifts from a man she barely knows and while there’s nothing threatening, there is a weird vibe that Sarah Butler can’t ignore. Her only recourse is the self-defense lessons at Rock Hard Gym with a personal, hands-on instructor. He is definitely the man for the job, Cole Johnson is not only eager to train her, he’s eager to get closer. He knows she’s not imagining things and he’s not imagining their intense attraction. When she disappears, Cole enlists the help of Ace Security and he will stop at nothing to find the love of his life… before she vanishes forever.

 

This engaging suspense has the sweetest couple that makes readers smile and sigh in delight. The characters are strong and easily draw readers into their story and their chemistry is awesome which makes readers believe that anything is possible when comes to falling in love. Sarah and Cole are made for each other and while the relationship has all the emotional angst once would expect from the situation, the romance is sweet and one readers can really enjoy. 

 

The plot is steady paced and the suspense builds throughout, keeping readers glued to the pages. Some unexpected and surprising twists keeps readers on their toes as the story unfolds and readers begin to wonder just what this bad guy has in mind. The conclusion of this story is a bit unbelievable in how sweet the heroine is but it also speaks of her humanity and readers have no problem fitting it with her characters which makes it quite fitting for this thrilling romance.

New Release Review! The Blacksmith Queen (The Scarred Earth Saga #1) G.A. Aiken!

 

 

 

Good Morning, Readers! Today I am starting off the week with a visit to the Hill Lands where the Old King has died and a prophecy about a new queen has emerged. Enjoy and don't forget to add The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

When a prophesy brings war to the Land of the Black Hills, Keeley Smythe must join forces with a clan of mountain warriors who are really centaurs in a thrilling new fantasy romance series from New York Times bestselling author G.A. Aiken.  

 

The Old King Is Dead

 

With the demise of the Old King, there’s a prophesy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills. Bad news for the king’s sons, who are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers. But for blacksmith Keeley Smythe, war is great for business. Until it looks like the chosen queen will be Beatrix, her younger sister. Now it’s all Keeley can do to protect her family from the enraged royals. 

 

Luckily, Keeley doesn’t have to fight alone. Because thundering to her aid comes a clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amichai. Not the most socially adept group, but soldiers have never bothered Keeley, and rough, gruff Caid, actually seems to respect her. A good thing because the fierce warrior will be by her side for a much longer ride than any prophesy ever envisioned …

 

 

 

The Old King has died and a prophecy that a queen will ascend to the throne of the Black Hills has emerged and the king’s sons are prepared to defend their birthright against all comers including each other. Blacksmith Keeley Smythe is benefiting from the war until it looks like the chosen queen will be her younger sisters, now it’s all she can do to protect her family from the enraged royals. Luckily she doesn’t have to fight alone, because the clan of kilt-wearing mountain warriors called the Amicahi have joined the quest.

 

The author has given her fascinating world life once again with some truly wonderful additional elements that readers can definitely appreciate. The dragons may not be a full part of this story, but it takes place in the same world, just a different part. The characters of this new series are strong and blood thirsty as the others and there definitely grab all of the reader’s attention from the very beginning. While Keeley reminds readers of the Human Queen, she has her own refreshing personality that readers can definitely enjoy and the budding relationship that is building between her and Caid promises to be epic.

 

This fast paced story is full of adventure, suspense, excitement and emotional angst, but the way these characters deal with that turmoil can be a bit frightening as well as charming. The author makes this blood thirsty world seem so very reasonable that readers can’t help but have fun and be delighted with the captivating characters, which includes centaurs, dwarves, barbarians, witches, and wild horses, while they are completely enthralled by this riveting and exhilarating adventure.

~Omega's Choice~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 1

by Lilli Carlisle

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

In a realm of elves, ogres and white witches, where danger is ever-present, Princess Helena Lichtenberg lost her parents at a young age. Raised by her uncle and aunt, Helena values family above all else. Now, as decreed by tradition, it is time to select a mate.

 

HER ALPHA

 

Enormous, scarred and scary, Black Ridge Wolf Pack leader Aldric Forst has never drawn the eye of any Omega. Why would he? But, on this, the night of what he swears is his last selection celebration, everything is different. One of those most beautiful, magical and powerful women, the niece of the king and queen themselves, wants him. And Aldric has never wanted anything more in return. No force—no matter how dark, no matter how powerful—will take Helena from him.

 

 

~Ceva's Chance~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 2

 

SHROUDED IN DARKNESS...

 

If it hadn't been for King Leonidas, white witch Ceva would have roamed the earth alone and ostracized. She was a biological accident, and her heritage was a curse she'd carry around for all her days. Now she fights for her king and kingdom, a fierce warrior on a mission to prove she is worthy of the trust and friendship the king has afforded. When she meets Lothar, captain of the Black Ridge Wolf Pack guard, she glimpses a future she never thought possible. But once he knows her truths, he will surely reject her.

 

ONLY HE CAN SET HER FREE

 

Lothar had never met anyone like Ceva. Beautiful, fierce, protective and loyal, she would make the perfect mate for any man. Lothar wants to be that man, but Ceva remains elusive. Sure, she flirts, and they dance around each other, but Lothar wants more. When his team joins hers on a dangerous mission, he learns her secrets, which makes her more extraordinary, not the pariah she believes she is. But her past is about to catch up with her, and only his love can save them from certain death.

 

 

~Karli's Resolve~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 3

 

THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE NOVEL

 

The Power of Unity

 

Twenty-five years ago Karli's parents ripped her away from her home and the men she loved. An omega with gifts worthy of only the most special man, her parents refused to allow her to mate with anyone less than a powerful, wealthy alpha. But at a young age Karli had found her forever in Joseph and Rowl's arms, and she knew she could never love anyone else. After a vicious ogre attack decimated the village where her parent's had hidden her, warriors came to save the wounded pack members. Warriors led by Joseph and Rowl.

 

Although she had seemed to disappear into thin air, Joseph and Rowl never stopped searching for the woman they loved. When Karli was discovered among the ruins of a small village, the fierce warrior captains couldn't believe their eyes. And once they had found her, they were never going to let her go. But dark forces were at work to separate the triad once again, and this time all their lives were on the line.

 

 

~Laura's Legacy~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 4

 

A GIFT BOUND BY LOVE

 

While Laura was attending the annual omega celebration, a ruthless ogre attack destroyed her village and wiped out her family. Heartbroken, lonely, and adrift, she was forced to rely on the kindness of the Black Ridge wolf pack alpha for a home. And so were many others, including members of the small Newton pack, and their handsome, strong alpha, Dedric. One brief interlude was all it took for Laura to know she would choose him as her mate.

 

Alpha Dedric Newton couldn’t believe his good fortune. Beautiful and powerful, Laura was the omega of his dreams. Worried he had so little to offer, he insists she spend time with his small pack as they rebuild their village and homes. Laura and Dedric’s time in Newton strengthens their bond while evil works to undo all of Laura’s gifts, especially her legacy. After finding the greatest love an alpha could dream of, Dedric will do anything and everything to keep Laura safe from harm.

 

 

~Lily's Trust~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 5

 

LOVE AND SACRIFICE 

 

Omegas choose their mates, and Lily had been certain Jensgar would be happy she had chosen him. Instead, the former general of the king's army refused her, forcing her to the leave the pack she'd adopted. Humiliated and heartbroken, she returns to the Black Ridge Pack, only to find the pitying glances and hushed comments too much to bear. She has no home, and no one to call her own. Convinced she has no other choice, she flees to the forest to live as a wolf. She is shocked when Jensgar, in wolf form, comes for her, and slowly convinces her to trust him again. But the woods hold secrets, and danger. When Jensgar's life is threatened, Lily gives up everything to save the man she loves, and once again puts her chance for happiness in peril.

 

 

~Katrina's Destiny~

The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 6

 

A TANGLED WEB 

 

Marcus loves Katrina, but can't mate her. Katrina loves Marcus, but won't abide him keeping his distance any longer. Bain loves Katrina, and she falls for him. Marcus is willing to step aside so Katrina can have a happy life with Bain. Katrina wants a triad mating, especially since her young son, Thorn, has become attached to both men. But... Marcus made a blood oath that keeps him from mating Katrina, and will kill him if he breaks it. Having Bain as part of a triad mating might be a way around the oath, if only Bain can shake his ex, who still loves him. Add in Gods wiping memories, centuries old secrets, and a resurrected lunatic - getting to happily-ever-after has never been this complicated. 

 

 

MY REVIEWS

 

 

Omega’s choose their mates and Lily Chose Jensgar, but the general refused her, forcing her to leave the pack she adopted. Unable to stand the pitying glances and hushed comments, she flees to the forest to live as a wolf. She’s shocked when Jensgar comes for her and slowly convinces her to trust him again, but the woods holds secrets and danger and when Jengar’s life is threatened Lily makes the ultimate sacrifice.

 

This romance is an emotional and quite turbulent read with solid, captivating characters that draws readers in and refuses to let go. The poignant romance between Jensgar and Lily is sweet and full of surprises that changes everything and builds thrilling suspense throughout the story. This fast paced story is non-stop excitement and feelings with stunning twists and is further enhanced by the appearance of gods and a curse. While on the short side, this romance captures the heart, causes a few tears and is a full story in the Black Ridge Wolf Pack.

 

 

 

Marcus and Bain both love Katrina, Katrina loves them both, but a blood oath and an ex that doesn’t want to let go stand in their way of happily ever after.

 

This Black Ridge Wolf Pack romance is kind of split in to two parts with both parts being full of thrills, unexpected twists and romance.  The characters are strong, compelling and grab readers’ attentions right from the start. The romance is sweet and full of sizzling chemistry but the relationship is hampered by the Goddess Net who does something terrible to remove the competition in order to keep Bain, so in the first part of the story, the suspense builds around Katrina and Net being force to get along to survive and Net is put on trial. The second part of the story has the suspense building throughout a journey through a dangerous quest to end to the blood oath that Marcus made as a child. The fast paced plot keeps readers glued to the pages with lots of twists and excitement as secrets are revealed and the triad’s happiness is hampered by the whims of the gods.

In a world in which werewolves, elves, witches, ogres and various other paranormals live, laws are essential for their own safety and survival. Omegas are born with powers varying from control over flora and fauna, healing the sick and dying, to influencing an entire army to lay down their weapons. Truly, their abilities are as endless as someone’s imagination. In the bloody and dark years before law and order was brought to their society, omegas were stolen and used for their powers, wars were fought over them and many died as a result. Now, omegas are fiercely protected and laws are in place to ensure their continued safety.

 

This is why one of the most crucial of those rules is the omega’s right to choose their alpha, and not the other way around.

Oh, she shows up. For her best friend's wedding.

 

But Tori is a terrible bridesmaid because all she can think about is her knight-in-shining-Mardi-Gras-beads from last year.

 

Well, and because she accidentally lays a hot kiss on her BFF.

 

Aka, the groom.

 

Unfortunately, no one believes that it was a case of mistaken identity. So, now she has to convince everyone she has no intention of ruining the wedding. She's going to need a crazy-about-her boyfriend ASAP. Even if he's just faking it.

 

Well there's only one other person she knows in Louisiana...

 

Josh is all in. In fact, he's thrilled. And he's not faking anything.

 

But the groom isn't faking his sudden case of cold feet either.

 

And now Tori might have a choice to make.

 

 

 

REVIEWMY BEST FRIEND'S MARDI GRAS WEDDING (BOYS OF THE BAYOU) BY ERIN NICHOLAS

 

My Best Friend's Mardi Gras Wedding (Boys of the Bayou, #1)My Best Friend's Mardi Gras Wedding by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An Affair to Remember meets Mardi Gras and paves it's own way to glory. Erin Nicholas proves that sentimental can be tempting. My Best Friend's Mardi Gras Wedding scores plenty of laughs, but as always Nicholas' continues to shoot for the heart. Josh and Tori are strangers who have a standing date on Mardi Gras. Time and distance make a relationship unthinkable, but their hearts refuse to let that get in the way. Is their romance, a heartache waiting to happen or is a happy ending on the horizon? Ain't no party like a romance party because the love lasts all year round.

New Release Review! The Debt (The Billionaire Club #1) Jackie Ashenden!

 

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today I am visiting with Ash Evans to find out how this billionaire finds the sexiest way to collect a debt. Enjoy and don't forget to add The Debt by Jackie Ashenden to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Ruthless billionaire Ash Evans finds the sexiest way to collect on a debt in the first installment in The Billionaire’s Club quartet!

 

Notoriously ruthless property developer Ash Evans never forgives a debt. And I have two days to convince the former street fighter not to pull his investment in my father’s company. Taking a job as his chauffeur in Paris is the only way to get close enough to ask the bad-tempered billionaire for a favor.

 

With his sexy tattoo, scars and magnificently cut body, he’s as powerful, sleek and difficult to manage as the sports cars my family designs. And after meeting his electric-blue eyes in the rearview mirror all night, I’m more than happy to rev his engine and take the boss for a ride!

 

But now Ash thinks I’m just using him to get what I want. And he’ll give me what I need, but there is a price—posing as his girlfriend to help him exact vengeance on his half brother. Pretending to love Ash is the easiest job I’ve ever had…and soon my heart is racing into danger. Will a man so full of anger ever be capable of loving me back?

 

 

 

He’s a notoriously ruthless property developer who never forgives a debt. And Ellie Little has two days to convince Ash Evans not to pull his investment in her father’s company. The only way to get close to the bad-tempered billionaire is to pose as his chauffeur but Ash turns the table and soon Ellie is posing as his girlfriend.

 

The first book in this new billionaire romance series is an emotional, gripping and engaging read that stirs and delights the senses.  The chemistry between these two strong, vivid characters sizzles with an electrical charge that singes readers with the turn of every page, but the relationship between Ellie and Ash has sparks flying and takes a lot of hard work and even that doesn’t guarantee this HEA as the past could derail it forever.

 

The story is fast paced and full of flying sparks, heated clashes, and super-heated passion that delights readers while the emotional angst that flows from the pages as both the hero and the heroine have some issues to resolve but the hero in this case has some anger issues that threatens the romance even though he’s show his good side. And readers can’t help but become caught up in this romance and lose their hearts as Ash finds the sexiest way possible to collect on a debt and win the heart that he doesn’t know what to do with.

Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart – writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who've just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines. 

 

She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she's not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.
