Bestselling author Richard Bard returns with his highly rated Brainrush thriller

new bioweapon that threatens the soul of every mother in
America.
When a freak accident gave Jake Bronson near-superhuman mental powers and
landed his loved ones in the crosshairs of an Islamic terrorist, the
only way out was with guns blazing. But Jake was unable to put a stop
to his nightmares or his murderous nemesis, Luciano Battista, in that
ferocious Afghan mountains showdown. Now the terror czar and his
minions have brought the fight to American soil–along with the most
terrifying bioweapon that has ever threatened the free world. They
demand vengeance, and Jake’s family and friends are caught in the
crossfire.

From California’s beaches and Mexico’s deserts to the depths of a raging
underground river and the treacherous Venezuelan jungle, Jake and his
unlikely alliance of combat veterans and gangsters wage a rolling war
of wits, weapons, and indomitable will–to rescue those they love, to
save America from extinction, and to stop a madman’s bid for global
conquest dead in its tracks.

hidden past.
After waking up with amnesia from a six-year coma, Jake Bronson’s past is
lost to him. But that doesn’t mean the past hasn’t been looking for
him–or that it will let him live when it finally catches up.

Jake’s placid, anonymous life in Italy is shattered by the arrival of an
assassination squad hell-bent on eliminating him–and he has no idea
why he’s in their crosshairs. He’s saved only when an American
scientist intervenes, wielding strange technology that briefly
reactivates Jake’s dormant memories and deadly skills. As unknown
enemies continue to hound Jake’s every step, the scientist helps him
reconnect with lost friends and loved ones who believed him long
dead.

Any happy reunion is forfeit, though, as Jake’s murky history and
mysterious talents conceal a terrible secret that–should it fall
into the wrong hands–could trigger the extinction of the human race.
Averting this apocalypse means Jake must risk everything to reawaken
his true self and stop an ancient order from unleashing humanity’s
ultimate judgment.

Hard Justice (Alpha Security, #3)

Genre: Military, Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Forever

Release Date: August 29, 2017


As the first female operative at Alpha Security, Charlotte “Charlie” Sparks has her work cut out for her. Sure, she can wrestle a man to the ground and hit a target at 200 yards with the best of them. But sometimes, being surrounded by all that testosterone can drive a woman to distraction-especially when that distraction is six-and-a-half feet of cocky, confident, Alpha-trained muscle.

Ex-SEAL commander Vince Franklin has been on some of the most dangerous missions in the world. But pretending to be Charlie’s fiancé on their latest assignment in Miami is his toughest challenge yet. Vince and Charlie are like oil and water; they just don’t mix. And when their fake romance generates some all-too-real heat, Vince learns that Charlie is more than just arm candy. She’s the real deal-and she’s ready for some serious action.

This would be my first title that I read by April Hunt. And going by what I read from Hard Justice that was a lack on my part. Hard Justice the third title in the “An Alpha Security Novel” was great. The synopsis didn’t really do this book justice to the way this book was written.
Hard Justice has a place for all readers to enjoy; sexy characters, a strong will woman capable of taking care of herself, but a strong alpha male standing by her side…. just in case. We can’t forget the action & adventure with a load of romantic suspense thrown in for good measure.
Not knowing how Alpha Security come about was the only think troublesome. But again, that was my error and not the Authors. This book read like a stand-alone, but I had to order the others in the series because this story was too good just to read only this one.

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

“Fast-paced romance . . . very compelling. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

As she hunts for a drug lord killing her fellow witches, all Nessa Lansa’s instincts point to the Grizzly motorcycle club. That might be because their leader, Bear, is the strong, silent shifter type: warm brown eyes and more muscle and alpha male than any woman can ignore. Which makes Nessa’s plan to seduce and betray him all the more dangerous . . .

Bear doesn’t trust the curvy, blue-eyed witch. But Nessa can heal the injuries that sap his strength. And since he can’t stop thinking of her lush body and teasing smile, her plan to mate him to reclaim her own power is highly tempting. Just one problem. Once a desire this wild is loose, no one will ever control it .

If you ever read one of Rebecca Zanetti books. You will know that she tries to engage the reader from the start, and won’t let you go until the very last page is turned.
Only a few shifters can turn into more than one animal. It is known that you should choose the dominant animal and only the dominant to become. However, to save his sister life from the council, Bear had to go against nature and turn into his alternate form a Dragon. Which we later learn has shortened his life span, and now only one person can save him…. Tessa Lansa. Or so she tells Bear. However, her healing him comes with a price. He must mate with her for life.

When it comes to secrets, no one is better at keeping than a Witch. Tessa knows all too well about secrets, for she is caring one around that not too many people knows about. It’s one that she must keep from Bear, which it’s becoming harder and harder to keep.
Wicked Bite was everything that I hoped for with Bear’s story. Action with a lot of romance. The chemistry was topped with sassy banter among our intrepid lovers. The final revelation of who’s behind the making of the drug that is killing witches and humans is finally revealed.

Wicked Bite is a great stand-alone title, but is even better if you read the titles in the order of publication.

Romantic Suspense BESTSELLER • Will his choice mean certain death to the woman he promised to protect? In Sheila Kell’s passionate novel of deception and desire, a smoking-hot enforcer and a determined reporter are destined to make choices that will change everything.

Every choice requires a decision, but some choices are determined by the heart.

Enforcer AJ Hamilton is no longer on the right side of the law. Tangled up with Baltimore’s largest crime boss, he has been tasked to threaten bothersome reporter, Megan Rogers. After a heated encounter, his attraction to her is as unexpected as it is unwanted. Failing to warn her off, AJ is forced to protect her from her stubborn self as well as his criminal boss.

Saving Megan from the clutches of certain death, AJ’s no longer sure which side he’s fighting for. With tensions high, their passion flares as they battle to stay one step ahead of the criminal mastermind The Magician. As their plan to expose him unfolds, AJ is forced to make a choice. But no matter the option he chooses, he may not be able to protect her or their hearts.

***

Before I get into review for those of you who chosen to avoid HIS Desire, I will give you a little back story on AJ Hamilton.

AJ Hamilton “FBI Special Agent” Brother to Jesse Hamilton and ex-partner to one Kate Ross – Hamilton. Who aided on the capture of the individual who was seeking revenge on his sibling Jesse by pursuing his partner Kate.
Toward the conclusion of HIS Desire AJ’s family discovered that he went covert and now their scrambling to figured out what happened to their missing brother. And hopes that he knows that wherever he is, Hamilton Investigation and Security (HIS) will soon find him and bring him safely home.

I am coming to love Sheila Kell universe of HIS. Every one of the characters from the principal book (HIS Desire) tagged along for the fun and experience of HIS Choice.

What a perfect name “HIS Choice”, I ought to state for the second title in Sheila Kell’s HIS. Since that is the thing that one AJ Hamilton has done and will do all through this book. Settling on decisions that will touch his life as well as Megan Rogers as well.

HIS Choice opens with Megan Rogers needing to comprehend what happed to her sibling who disappeared yet later was discovered dead. Being an Investigator Reporter will come in handy in solving the mystery.

Megan Rogers knows the outcome and that only one error on her part could lead her to either vanishing or winding up simply like her sibling. In any case, she won’t let that stop her. She should for her parents’ piece of mind, however, more so for herself, discover who the secret individual behind the Magic Shop for that was the situation her sibling was chipping away at before he disappeared.

AJ went covert to discover who’s the mastermind behind the Magic Shop and to bring the entire organization to justice. By going covert, he knew, it implied doing things that conflict with the grain of profound quality. Conflicting with everything that HIS stands for.

He knew to guarantee that he left this mission alive and have Megan remaining close to him, he should turn into that individual…an individual for which HIS doors will always stay open for business. In the meantime, he should ensure that he doesn’t lose his actual self en route.

HIS Choice was another astounding romantic suspense, which will have you shake your head in in awe about who the driving force behind the Magic Shop truly was.

I was coming to love the Hamilton family by the closure of HIS Desire. In any case, after perusing HIS Choice I can authoritatively say that I adore them. The way Sheila Kell composes these characters you can’t resist the urge to become hopelessly enamored. Indeed, even the auxiliary characters leave along enduring impression well after the story closes.

I am coming to see an example on how Sheila Kell will end every one of her books in this series. Yes, Sheila Kell has done it once more. In any case, with this cliffhanger and the following title in the series… HIS Return, I at long last will have my answers to my burning questions; What happen to their Foster sibling and What made him leave the way he did?

I gave HIS Desire four stars, not because I felt that the book lacked something. But to leave space for the following title to Wow me. And that it has done in a huge way. With all the curve and turns and that conclusion! HIS Choice merit the stars I gave and somewhat more.

On the off chance that you are going back and forth about perusing Sheila Kell’s HIS. Give this reviewer a chance to comfort you and take a risk on the HIS series and realize that you won’t have buyer remorse.

HIS CHOICE is the second book in the HIS romantic suspense series. If you like thrilling, edge of your seat reading with sizzling sex scenes, then you’ll love each installment of Sheila Kell’s best-selling series.

Romantic Suspense BESTSELLER • Will his stubbornness prevent him from trusting the woman he desires? In Sheila Kell’s provocative novel of suspicion and need, a handsome security specialist and a feisty FBI agent are tied by grief and attraction… and the fervor of the unknown.

He’s stubborn. She’s independent. Together, desire will determine their future.

Hamilton Investigation & Security leader, Jesse Hamilton, swears never to love again. The risk of losing his heart is too painful. Burying himself in work and caring for his daughter, he doesn’t expect strong-willed FBI Special Agent Kate Ross to break down his carefully constructed walls.

When Kate is injured, Jesse pulls the full force of HIS into action to protect her. He refuses to be the reason behind another senseless death. Making a decision that could cost Kate her life, Jesse must decide just how far he’s willing to go to save the woman his heart desires.

FBI Special Agent Kate Ross was attempting to keep her appreciation for her partner’s sibling a mystery. Jesse Hamilton promises to never love again after a corner store robbery left him bringing up his little baby girl alone. Be that as it may, he wasn’t expecting to be attracted to one Kate Ross.

Presently both their lives will come full circles. With one shot of a projectile from a drive-by shooter. The race is on to make sense of Why the individual needed both murdered.

HIS Desire was a speedy carefree enterprise, loaded with a lot of tension, a heap of chemistry between the two fundamental characters. In Sheila Kell first book in HIS Series. We discover that only an appearance or believing that a man or woman is appealing can be hazardous to the next individual wellbeing.

I was enchanted in reading His Desire. The plot was immersing and in the communication amongst Jesse and Kate was beguiling. I adored how Sheila Kell finished His Desire, it set up the story to her next title in HIS series “HIS Choice” the story about Jesse’s sibling, and Kate’s partner … AJ Hamilton.

HIS Desire is the first stand-alone book in the HIS Series with a happy ending for Jesse and Kate.

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

Publication Date: Jun 6, 2017

First in Katie Ruggle’s thrilling new Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series.

He lost his mentor.
He lost his K9 partner.
He almost lost his will to live.
But when a killer obsessed with revenge targets a beautiful woman on the run, Theo and his new K9 companion will do whatever it takes to save Jules before they lose their last chance at a happily ever after

Theodore Bosco, grieving the death of his partner, is reluctantly fascinated by secretive newcomer Jules. Although his instincts scream that he should avoid her, he can’t seem to stay away. It doesn’t help that Theo’s new K9 companion, Viggy, has fallen head over paws with Jules’s rambunctious family.

Or that when he’s with Jules, Theo finally knows peace.

When Jules kidnapped her siblings, whisking them away from abuse to the quiet anonymity of the Colorado Rockies, she never expected to catch the eye-or the heart-of a cop. All it would take is one wrong move and she’ll lose everything. Yet as Jules attempts to fight her growing attraction to the brooding K9 officer, another deadly threat lurks much closer to home. Someone’s gunning for Theo and Viggy, and they’re willing to take out anything…or anyone…who gets in the way of revenge.

Depression is difficult to tally, but depression takes the measurable form of one contemplating or commenting suicide. “Although suicide can’t be predicted or prevented knowing the warning signs can help you recognize when you or a loved one may be at risk” Depression and Suicide: Recognizing the Signs. (n.d.). Retrieved from http://www.webmd.com/depression/depre…

In Run To Ground, the 1st title in Katie Ruggle new series “Rocky Mountain K9 Unit” We see the after effects of depression/suicide.

Theodore lost his best friend, and partner. He too almost lost his will to live. Until the force assigned him a new partner. And when Jules life is jeopardy from a unknown person out to kill her, it would be up to Theo and Viggy to uncover the plot.

Run To Ground may carry a heavy message, but it was fairly light-hearted in the telling. The character grew on me after the first Chapter. I couldn’t turn the page fast enough to find out who the unknown person was and the reason for going after Jules.
Run To Ground may carry a heavy message, but it was fairly light-hearted in the telling. It was a compelling story that will have you anxiously waiting for the next installment. Especially with the huge cliffhanger at the end.
