SOMETIMES LIFE’S TOUGHEST LESSONS HAVE THE GENTLEST TEACHERS….
A small Wyoming town is about to learn a few lessons — from a new schoolteacher with the courage to win the heart of a man who swore he had nothing to give….

Mary Elizabeth Potter is a self-appointed spinster with no illusions about love. But she IS a good teacher — and she wants Wolf Mackenzie’s son back in school. And after one heated confrontation with the boy’s father, she knows father and son have changed her life forever.

Still paying for a crime he didn’t commit, Wolf Mackenzie has a chip on his shoulder the size of Wyoming. But prim-and-proper Mary Elizabeth Potter doesn’t see Wolf as the dangerous half-breed the town has branded him. Somehow she sees him as a good, decent, honest man. A man who could love….

Wolf’s not sure he — or the town of Ruth, Wyoming — is ready for the taming of Wolf Mackenzie.It has been awhile since I picked up a Linda Howard’s book. Actually, it has been several years or more. So, there is nothing like putting away the electronics and just grabbing a book. Yes, I don’t own this book on a Kindle, maybe I should for my couple has seen better days. But I digress, you’re looking for the review right.
Mackenzie Mountain is a page turner. With our heroine a teacher, who sees a bright future for Wolf Mackenzie’s son. But first, she must get Wolf’s son back into the class room.
Still paying for a crime he didn’t commit, Wolf Mackenzie resides on top of his mountain with his teenage son. Which didn’t bother him any; Until a prime and proper Mary Elizabeth Potter shows up on his door step. Then everything that he knows or come to know will be changed forever.
Once the town people of Ruth learns that Mary is teaching Wolf’s son Joe, someone in the town of Ruth doesn’t like it and decides to take things into their own hand to stop her.
Mackenzie Mountain was an excellent fun read from start to finish with a mystery to solve and romance to enjoy. This one is a keeper, so if you haven’t added this one to your list. Now is a good time to do so.

Kyle Madden is the cop in charge of the elite task force hunting a murderer known as the Cage Killer. He is also a werewolf and a member of the Arctic Brotherhood. When his team find one of the Cage Killer’s victims alive, Madden faces some tough choices. It emerges that the crazed killer is targeting werewolves. Will Madden be able to uphold his vow to keep the human and werewolf parts of his life separate?

Maria Delgardo knows she is lucky to be alive after escaping the clutches of a serial killer. Even so, her injuries are horrific and the murderer has made it clear he intends to finish the job. She only feels safe with Madden, the handsome cop who rescued her from captivity. Maria’s whole world is turned upside down when he tells her the reason why she was chosen by the Cage Killer.

If you’re looking for intrigue and a hot alpha male or wolf in this case. Then look no further. Jane Godman’s forth booking Wolf Slayer: Arctic Brotherhood is that book that every reader who’s into paranormal romance who loves to solve mysteries should read.
Wolf Slayer opens with Kyle Madden is on an elite task force; he’s also a member of the Arctic Brotherhood, out hunting a serial killer named the “Cage Killer”.

When he finds the victim alive he discovers that the “Cage Killer” victims all have something in common…they’re all Arctic wolves.
Is it possible to be a werewolf without a person knowing about it? I guess so because meet Maria Delgardo… an art gallery owner who the “Cage Killer” abused and tortured for weeks. Maria knows that she is lucky to be alive. But, more so when she opened her eyes and seen Kyle Madden hunched down inside her prison.

With her rescue, Maria thought she was safe until the “Cage Killer” made it known that he wasn’t finished with Maria.
Now, with Maria locked into his world, it would be up to Kyle and the other members of the Brotherhood to keep her safe.

Again, Jane Godman sent us on a high-octane adventure full of intrigue. The chemistry between Kyle and Maria was felt throughout the story. Wolf Slayer was fast paced, all way up to the big reveal of the “Cage Killer.”

Since this is only my second title that I read by Jane Godman I can’t really say how this book compares with the others in this series. But, by reading Storm Wolf, I can say I really enjoyed this title the most.

Ever since her father was killed just over a year ago by the Arctic fighting force known as the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun, Odessa Santin has been the leader of the Siberian werewolves. The Arctics and Siberians have been at war for centuries. So when Odessa has sex with an Arctic stranger, it is the craziest thing she has ever done.

Dan Lowell is a member of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun. Lowell is aghast when he realizes his mystery Siberian lover is Odessa Santin, particularly as he needs to confront her because he believes she has been poisoning the Arctic environment. The physical passion they feel for each other is equaled by their sizzling animosity as they argue over the allegations.

Lowell soon discovers that Odessa is being framed, and someone is trying to reignite hostilities between the two packs. For the first time ever, the Arctics and the Siberians agree to put aside their differences and unite against a common enemy. As they work together, Lowell and Odessa begin to realize that their feelings for each other run deeper than they thought.

 

Storm Wolf is the third installment in Jane Godman’s Arctic Brotherhood series. Me I think these books can be read as a stand-alone. However, I do want to read the others to find out more about the Siberian.

This book started off with a quickie. I mean literally a quick. No wasting time for this author. After they quickie was over, the readers are in for a big mystery. If the Arctic’s arch enemy is dead who is out to destroy the Arctic wolves now.

Dan Lowell thought he knew, until his one physical encounter with Odessa Santin. But he soon discovers that Odessa is being set up. And the closer they get to find the person or persons.

Storm Wolf was full of romance and adventure. However, questions are left answered. Which is very frustrating, to say the least; Nonetheless, Storm Wolf was a good book.

I will recommend this story to any readers who love intrigue with hot alpha wolves thrown in.

NEW ORLEANS MAGIC SERIAL

After a murder at a voodoo ceremony in a charming New Orleans bistro,  street cops Jordan O’Reilly, Liam O’Reilly, and Zachary Doucet have a personal stake in solving the case. But if they meddle in the investigation, they may get thrown off the force–or worse.

Par 3: Zachary

Officer Zachary Doucet arrives at a murder scene‒‒the victim another voodoo ceremony participant‒‒only to face his ex-partner Detective Rebecca Romero. Zachary sees this murder as proof that the wrong man is in jail and intends to clear his half-brother Jordan. From experience, Rebecca fears he’ll do anything to get what he needs, so she unofficially works the case with him. Their unconsummated attraction to each other flares anew, but with Rebecca a straight arrow and Zachary a maverick, is there hope for a future together?

Three authors, three books, one conclusion.

Zachary is the last book in the New Orleans Magic series. And as promised I went and started the series over and completed Zachary story at long last. In Liam’s story, I thought I knew who the individual was circumventing executing the supporter on Jordan’s life partner bistro. Obviously, it was quite recently starry-eyed thinking on my part, since I didn’t care for the one character.

On the off chance that I needed to pick which book out of the three I preferred it would be this book. I think because it had better character development and out of the three brothers I like Zachary better.

Independently each book merits the evaluations that I provided for them. Be that as it may, all in all, only two stars for series.

After a murder at a voodoo ceremony in a charming New Orleans bistro, three street cops, Jordan O’Reilly, Liam O’Reilly, and Zachary Doucet, have a personal stake in solving the case. But if they meddle in the investigation, they may get thrown off the force–or worse.

PART 2: LIAM

Liam O’Reilly doesn’t have to wear the uniform to be a cop, he is the uniform. Disciplined and skeptical, Liam doesn’t believe in voodoo any more than he does in lasting love. But then he meets brash defense attorney Simone Jones… and his carefully structured world spins out of control.

New Orleans Magic: Jordan… Liam… Zachary… Each of these compelling stories ends with an HEA for the hero and heroine. But only the full set will finally get to the bottom of the murder mystery. Be sure to read them all!

Liam written by Ann Voss Peterson is part 2 of the New Orleans Magic. Okay, I like this part better than I did part one. I don’t know whether it was the character of Liam who didn’t really have any serious issues….just the routine mess of being a cop. Be that as it may, I found that this story held my attention more than Jordan story.

This story finds again one of the O’Reilly attempting to discover who is murdering the patrons of the New Orleans bistro. In any case, this one is moving closer to home, when, Jordan winds up on the flip side of the law, and it’s up to his sibling, Liam to clear him before he turns into a dead man walking.

In this story, the mystery is coming noticeably clear. I think I know the individual who’s doing the grisly killing and I think I know the reason why.

Liam story just like Jordan’s story to ends on a cliffhanger
