Jonah Ranger was restoring an antique 1955 Chevy when he heard a woman’s voice on the car radio pleading for help. She said her name was Alice Davenport, and a man was holding her captive, forcing her into a grueling workout routine so she’d be a proper challenge when he hunted her like a big game on his private estate.

Rebecca York has done it again. In book #15 in her Decorah Security series, Preying Game with the title telling the whole story. Alice Davenport was kidnapped and made to endure a grueling workout before she was to be hunted like prey. Taking a chance, she telepathically called out for help. Not expecting to really receive help. Until Jonah answered her call.

If I go any further in my review I will be taken the pleasure out of the book. I must say, though. Preying Game was an enjoyable if not interesting book to be sure. The characters were likable and like the other books in this series, you won’t want to miss. But if I had to choose I would say that Preying Game is the best out of the series by far…IMOP

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga.
 
Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.

Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s …not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.

Jacquelyn Frank begins 2017 on a high note. With book #1 in her new Paranormal romance…we’re introduced to a whole new breed of vampire. Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire sworn to protect his queen. Rogue vampires are out to destroy others like Rafe and to do this they are planning to sabotage the summit meeting that is being held in New York. On top of that, there is a vampire going around killing humans threatening the secret of their existence. It’s now up to Rafe to hunt them down before an Ace Homicide Detective discover the true nature of the serial killer.

Thirst will provide hours of entertainment as you dive into the world of a hidden society. Thirst was a well-developed, fast pace novel. A very strong start to this series. A must read, this reviewer can’t wait to see what happens further along in this series.

She’s ready to make her move…

Lupine shifter Daphne’s recent move back home gives her a chance with the fierce and sexy male she’s always wanted: jaguar shifter Hector. She plans to show him she’s all grown up, and more than enough woman for him. But a vampire from her past has been harassing her and will stop at nothing to make her his.

He’s not letting her go this time…

Hector knows Daphne can take care of herself, but he immediately steps in to protect her from a stalker. He’s lusted after the sweet and sensual she-wolf for years and won’t let anything come between them now. With circumstances forcing them to share a roof, Hector won’t hide his attraction toward her any longer. But Daphne underestimates her stalker’s persistence and it might be too late for Hector to keep the woman he loves safe.

His Untamed Desire is a nice past time, until Katie Reus comes out with another full-length novel. It was short but sweet and fits right in with the rest of the Moon Shifter Series.

Don’t make no mistake. Even though this book is short, Katie Reus didn’t skimp on the romance or the plot. Both characters were in fact likable and the story line was very fast pace.

For someone like me patients isn’t in my nature, so this title was very sweet until Lethal Game comes out next year.

Immortal Nights (Argeneau #24)

Abigail Forsythe’s life hasn’t been easy lately. Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to take her mind off an empty bank account and abandoned dreams, it’s a naked man locked in a plane’s cargo hold. A very big, incredibly gorgeous naked man. And when instinct prompts her to free him, Abigail must rely on this stranger for survival…a stranger who leaves her thrumming with need every time they touch.

Tomasso Notte knows he’s found his life mate in Abigail. Now he just has to hold on to her. They’re miles from civilization, hunted by his kidnappers. Abigail has no idea of Tomasso’s abilities, or of how intensely pleasurable their unique connection can be. But he’s about to show her, beginning with one wild, hot, immortal night…

This just proves that I have way too much going on this holiday season. I didn’t even know that Lynsay Sands had a new book out. Thanks mom…In Lynsay Sands latest book we journey back to that beloved family the Argeneaus in book #24 we finally get the story of Tomasso Notte.

I thought Lynsay Sands couldn’t get any better, but of course she had to go and prove me wrong. The relationship between Abigail and Tomasso was ingenious.

Abigail was on the road to becoming a Medical Doctor, when her mother was diagnosed with cancer. So, being a good daughter she put her career plans on hold to take care of her mother. Once her mother lost the battle, Abigail is second guessing if becoming a doctor was a good idea. If Doctors couldn’t save her mother what good were they. Until one day when her child hood friend invited her to stay with him. But when she arrived, her friend got an important assignment that requires him to fly business men to a tropical island. Instead of having Abigail wait for him back at his place, he decided to take her along. That is when Abigail life change drastically.

Immortal Nights, was a fast pace story that has something for every type of reader of romance. If you haven’t picked up a story by Lynsay Sands or if you’re undecided by what to read, then look no further Immortal Nights is certainly that book that will leave you saying when is the next Argeneau book due for release.

He walked away once; he won’t do it again.

Wolf shifter Aldric Kazan is no stranger to pain. Since the loss of his mate a century ago, he won’t allow himself to fall for someone again—not even the feisty female who stirs things in him that he thought were gone long ago. But as a supernatural investigator, he’s forced to team up with the same woman he vowed to stay away from.

She let him in once; she refuses to do it again.

Natalia Cordona refuses to back down from any challenge—even if it means joining forces with Aldric, the sexy and brooding man who won’t get too close. Locating missing vampires before a volatile war breaks out seems nearly impossible as the duo struggle with their explosive and undeniable attraction. Now it’s up to Natalia and Aldric to trust each other to stop an all-out war from breaking out that would destroy the harmony they’ve all worked so hard for.

I’ve only read two books by Katie Reus. As people are aware by now I can’t pass up a good paranormal romance. And Dark Protector is no exemption to this rule.

Dark Protector is book six in the Moon Shifter series and can be read as a standalone, which I could attest to.  The book was well written with a fast pace and well developed and likeable characters. I fell in love with the characters that much…that I had to get caught up…so by doing this I had go into my local library to try to borrow the rest of this series.

His darkest secret is revealed while her greatest fear comes to life.

New mother and Divinity, Lydia Rayners, is no stranger to heartache and loss. Her father, husband, and brother were taken from her by the demons, and now they want her son. Lydia will never let that happen, and she is determined to bring them down one by one—by herself if necessary. Her plans are going well until a certain sexy deputy discovers that she’s the rumored demon slayer and is hell-bent on stopping her.

Witch and deputy sheriff, Zach Manus, has run from his past for too long and it’s catching up to him now. He’s determined to keep his dark family secret hidden as he fights for control over his emotions and growing powers. His darker side controlled him once before, and he won’t let it happen again. But the closer he gets to Lydia, the more the darkness threatens to consume him, just as the gorgeous Divinity consumes his thoughts and threatens his resolve.

Zach is powerless to resist her, and while Lydia may understand him like no other, trusting her might unleash a new dark power that could destroy them both and put everyone they love in danger in the process.

  Lia Davis gives us a woman on a mission of revenge. Lydia’s father, husband and brother was taken away from her by the Demons and now they’re after her son. In Dark Divine book #3 in The Divinities series, the Demons will now see that it’s never a good thing to come between a mother and child.

Dark Divine was just as exciting as the other books in this series. If I have to choose, I must choose this book as the best so far. Besides the romance between Zach and Lydia we also solve the burning question of who is leaking information to the Demons? Yep, it was the person I thought it was, but the reason for them helping the Demon was an even bigger secret.

If you don’t read any other book in this series I would unquestionably recommend Dark Divine as a must read. However, to get the full entertainment value I recommend that The Divinities series book read in order.

The conclusion to the series is due out next month, and can I say that this reviewer can’t wait.

Anna Frost had a bad feeling when her twin sister, Liz, told her she’d run off with a member of the notorious Otherworld biker gang, the Blood Ravagers. And her unease skyrockets when her sister subsequently vanishes. The police have no authority and little interest, so Anna decides to take matters into her own hands by infiltrating the group to discover for herself what happened to Liz, where she meets….

Dante, half demon, half human. A mix of two worlds, accepted by neither, he’s had no choice but to learn the hard way how to play whatever side of the fence kept him alive during his nearly 500 years of existence. Now, as second-in-command of the Blood Ravagers biker gang, his survival depends on keeping his humanity a secret. Dante’s ultimate goal is to fulfill the vows he made over two centuries ago to create a world where half-breeds can live in safety and equality.

But when sheltered schoolteacher Anna finds unexpected, white-hot passion in the arms of Dante, will her quest for the truth cost him more than he ever bargained for? Or will they find a way to save Liz – and their love – together?

When Anna’s twin sister vanishes, she went to the police for assistance. But when the police refuse to take her sister disappearance seriously, Ann decided to take the matter into her own hands.

When her investigation leads to a bar, run by a biker gang, Anna comes to realize that no matter what she would find her sister and bring her back home.

Blood Bound was a fast pace, paranormal romance with an extremely good plot. With this book you must accept what goes against all that you think you know and just enjoy.
