Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown, New Orleans. He’s there with three of his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. One tantalizing scent captures Remy’s senses, forcing him to follow until he is face to face with Triana Bellamy—his beautiful high school crush.

After reconnecting, Remy and Triana are close—very. Remy struggles to keep things casual. Ever since his partner—and first love—was killed on the job, he’s kept women at a distance.

But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy’s protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self…and hope Triana accepts him.

Second chance at love, and renewing old friendships. Wolf Hunt tells the story of Remy Boudreaux another Alpha of the Dallas SWAT team. Remy and his fellow SWAT team are in New Orleans on assistance training assignment. One tantalizing scent latter Remy is on a spiral like none other. But after a mission went wrong and his lover was killed, Remy wanted nothing to do with love. But, Remy has no choice when he found “The One” person who would make his life complete.
Wolf Hunt was okay, right on par with all the other titles in this series. Only a slight difference there are some people who know that werewolves exist and will stop at nothing to become one. Wolf Hunt is a good action adventure/Paranormal romance. This was a very mild romance compare to her other titles in this series. So, I guess that is another slight difference. But all in all, a great sixth book.

Enforcer John Nelson has pulled double duty for months, keeping an eye on the Lone Wolves who are his charges as well as those that once answered to Margo Montgomery. More of a loner than most, he doesn’t mind going months at a time without seeing another Enforcer as was his typical pattern or at least it was until the formation of the Three Rivers pack disrupted lives everywhere. Now he must divide his time between watching the upstarts and checking on his charges while working with the other Enforcers to anticipate the next move by the Russian Volchitsa. No Enforcer expected to find themselves among the hunted, but when they target the one wolf he can tolerate, John defies orders to go after her.

Hadley Sexton is a bit of a wild card even for an Enforcer, and she loves being unpredictable. More of a mother hen than she likes to admit, she keeps an eye on her Lone Wolves, and treats them more like family than charges…but when three Enforcers are brutally murdered over the course of three weeks, Hadley discovers someone has been shadowing her trail and they aren’t alone. It is a dangerous game with a brutal enemy, one willing to kill the wolves she’s sworn to protect to draw her out.

In this story, we find that the Russians Volchitsa are trying to eliminate all the Enforcers, by capturing and killing the lone wolves. So, we have Hadley Sexton rounding up all the loan wolves that she is responsible for to try to keep them safe. But is anyone truly safe? When the Russian Volchitsa locates Hadley’s safe house, the war is on to try to relocate the lone wolves.
When John Nelson was unable to reach Hadley, he takes on the mission to locate her. Already three enforcers were killed, will he be on time to save Hadley or will she be number four.

SWEPT AWAY BY PASSION. . .

Rydell Case’s ship is his home, his heart, and his reason for being. After his ex-wife left him—taking his brand-new megayacht, Tesoro Mio with her—she sailed off with a royal billionaire and out of his life forever. Now Ry spends his days searching for treasure—until his ship is hijacked. With the prospect of his salvage business tanking, he needs both the ship and his ex back—if only she didn’t despise him more than any man on earth. . .

When Addison D’Marco boards Tesoro Mio to find her ex-husband in her cabin, she’s furious. Ry is more handsome, more annoying, and more determined than ever. Addy can’t believe he has the nerve to demand the ship back after the way he broke her heart. With her fiancé about to board, she doesn’t want Ry back in her life to ignite painful memories and never- forgotten desires. But could it be that, amid troubled waters, Addy and Ry can salvage what they once had and have a second chance at love. . .or does fate have something else in store?

This book wasn’t as good as the last one I read. It was okay with a lot of drama. The story-line was okay for what it was worth. The characters were likable or I should say some were liable. Others you just wanted to run them over with a freight train. The best part of this book for me was the last few chapters. Other than those bits at the end, nothing too much really happened.

He Will Always Bear the Scars

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn’t have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle—not now, maybe not ever.

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger’s pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay’s frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence…that not even her touch may be able to heal.

By Her Touch was an okay read. The character was well developed to put that you could see what drove them. However, the chemistry between Clay and Georgette was non-existing. The story dragged on way too long. I figured out who betrayed Clay to the Sultans at the beginning. So, when the big reveal happened it was meh.
This would be the first title I ever read by this author and so I can’t rightfully say if this was one of her best or not. I can say that this story could be read as a stand along and that this book would be suited towards readers who likes mystery along with light-hearted romance.

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers Book 2)

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers, #2)Blood Freed by Traci Douglass

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Blood Ravagers #2

Publication Date: January 19, 2017

Characters: Dex, Elizabeth “Liz”


Elizabeth “Liz” Frost has always been the wild one. But now, with a niece or nephew on the way and her promise to become half of the new psychic Oracle team for the Blood Ravagers Biker Gang, she’s ready to turn over a new leaf. And what better way to start than by answering the call when gang leader Dante needs help? Her mission: to travel cross-country to get the information the gang needs to complete the Oracle Binding Ceremony. Should be easy, right? Except for the incredibly tempting lone-wolf shifter named Dex who’ll be her riding partner and protector on the journey.

Dexter “Dex” MacCallahan is tasked with guarding Liz Frost, one of the gang’s beautiful and bewildering new psychics. Dex can’t refuse the mission, but there’s one small problem. The time of his Rut is approaching, a rare occurrence where male wolf-shifters must physically bond with their chosen mate or face certain insanity and death. It could cost him not only the new life he’s built, but also his battered, scarred heart.

Together, Dex and Liz must search for the information they need before his old nemesis and a rival gang annihilates all they hold dear. But when the simmering chemistry between them boils over into searing hot passion, will they risk losing their hearts to save the ones they love?

If you haven’t read the first book in the Blood Bound series I advise you stop right here and read Blood Bound first. Blood Freed continues the saga. But in this story, we have Elizabeth who is the other half of Anna. But whereas Anna was the more reliable twin, Liz was the flighty one.

But where is the fun if you can’t be different. Whereas the first title of this series had more drama. Blood Freed is more action packed and full of sexual tension as the two main characters of Dex and Liz story unfolds. This story had a hidden meaning a moral if you must call it. That you can accomplish just about anything if you just believe in yourself.
I will recommend this story to all paranormal enthusiast.

Romancing the Rogue (Passion & Promises Book 3)

Romancing the Rogue (Gothic Historical Romance, #2)Romancing the Rogue by Erica Ridley

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: WebMotion

Series: Passion & Promises #3

Publication Date: March 21, 2017

Characters: Daniel, Rebecca


When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?

Daniel Goodenham, Lord North-Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to match-make her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…

The story unfolds when Daniel gets an invitation to a will reading. Whereby, giving Daniel a chance to apologize for slitting the only friend that treated him as a person and not a title.
Rebecca life was a solitary one. After the death of her beloved parents. She lived in a household where everyone forgot she was even there. But soon all that will change with the death of her uncle and the new Earl giving her only three months to marry. The only option she has left is the assistance of an old friend. But could old friendships be rekindled by just one word? Or will old wounds keep Daniel and Rebecca apart?
Romancing the Rogue would be my first title I’ve read by Erica Ridley and have to say that this book even surprised me. On how well written the storyline was. Romancing the Rogue would be the type of book that I would have started out with if I was still a young adult. Very tame in the way of romance.

Highland Barbarian (Murray Family, #13)

Publisher: Zebra; Reprint Edition

Publication Date: March 28, 2017

Characters: Sir Artan Murray, Cecily


Sir Artan Murray was right when he decided that the dying old man who bid him collect his niece, Cecily Donaldson, didn’t know her at all. The furious woman facing him is neither “sweet” nor “biddable.” Cecily demands the brawny Highlander return her to the wedding party from which he took her. But Artan has no intention of allowing so spirited and bewitching a creature to endure a loveless marriage to a ruthless lord for her clan’s sake. He aims to woo Cecily and show her that true love also yields unforgettable pleasure….

Highland Barbarian is book #13 of bestselling author Hannah Howell’s Murray Saga. This is a release with the original published date of 2006.

Highland Barbarian is book #13 of bestselling author Hannah Howell’s Murray Saga. This is a release with the original published date of 2006.

All through this book the characters of Artan Murray and Cecily reminded me of another book. “The Bride” written by Julie Garwood. I found that Highland Barbarian was rather good. But then again, Hannah Howell’s Murray Sagas is always entertaining. It had a strong character development and likable characters. What I liked mainly about this book, was that for once it was the woman, in this case, Cecily who had to come to the rescue of the strong and capable man.

Highland Barbarian had plenty of drama with the main characters always in peril. This book fits right in with the rest of the rest of the series.
But the greatest thing about this series, no matter how many times you read them, it never gets old…. That and all the stories could be read as a stand-alone.
