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.

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.

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


First in a chilling new paranormal romantic suspense series from award-winning author Abbie Roads

He’s found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

I was totally shocked by this book. If this book wasn’t categorized as a romance I would have sworn I was reading a thriller and a dark one at that.

It was the cover that lured me in. But after reading this bone-chilling, paranormal suspense thriller. Yes, I said a paranormal suspense thriller. Abbie Roads has put together one energetic book that would start her new series Fatal Truth on a high note.

Cain Killion knew that he might be one step away from being a serial killer just like his father. His only saving grace is he uses his gift with blood to take the edge off. Until one crime scene became all too familiar. With a haunting symbol linking the crime to his past and only one person would know what it means.

Some say that a person could take a lot before they go mentally insane. And what Mercy Ledger went through…witnessing her family being murder by the hands of Cai’s father should have done it. But Mercy was a resilient person. But when Cain and Mercy past comes back to haunt them will it kill them or drive both over the deep end.

I’ve read only two other books by Abbie Road and those where her Fatal Dreams Series, I must say that Saving Mercy tops either one of those. The plotline flows flawlessly without missing a beat.

I would recommend this book, it certainly had it all. I wouldn’t recommend it as a light reading material before bed.

Andromeda’s Fall (Shadowcat Nation #1)

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


Andromeda Reynolds is being hunted. After witnessing her mother’s violent death at the hands of a pack of wolf shifters, Andie has devoted her life to protecting her community of cougar shifters from a similar fate. But now, a greater threat lies within her own pack, and she must run. If she stays, Kyle Carstairs will force their mating, seeking the added political power their union would provide.

Andie would rather chew off her own foot than end up with Kyle. Though, knowing him, she won’t live long either way. Andie’s only hope of survival is to mate Jaxon Keller, the Alpha of the Keller Dare with which she is seeking asylum. But before she can get to him, Andie must first go through A.J., one of the Alpha’s Protectors. What Andie doesn’t realize is that A.J. has secrets of his own. All Andie knows is that the incredibly frustrating shifter insists on challenging her story, her skills, her trust… and her heart.

The description is what capture my attention, but it was the well thought out plotline that sold me on this story. Andromeda’s Fall was a great story. With characters that drew you in and begged you to stay awhile.

Andromeda Reynolds is being hunted and the only person she knows is strong enough to help her was Jaxon Keller. But when she breaks into the Keller Dare it wasn’t Jaxon she falls prey. Unbeknownst to Andromeda “Andie” Reynolds, everything is not what it seems to be.

What I liked about this book were the main characters. They were both strong willed and Andie was one tough shifter that could handle anything that came her way. Jaxon was tough, then again you had to be if you were an alpha of a cougar dare. Yet, he was sweet and loyal all at the same time.

With this being the first title in Shadowcat Nation Abigail Owen is off to a good start. This series is one that I would definitely follow to see how it all plays out in the end.

Characters: Dominic, Cassidy

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


Last week, Cassidy DiRocco had some influence over the vampires that stalk the streets of New York City. She was never completely safe, but with her newfound abilities as a night blood and her honed instincts as a crime reporter, at least she had the necessary skills to survive.

Now, thanks to the injuries she sustained while saving her brother from a fate worse than death, she’s lost her night blood status just as another crime spree hits Brooklyn. Dozens of people are being slaughtered, and each victim bears the Damned’s signature mark; a missing heart.

Cassidy will need the help of all her allies to survive the coming war, including the mysterious and charismatic Dominic Lysander, Master Vampire of New York City. But as his rival’s army threatens his coven and his own powers weaken with the approaching Leveling, even Dominic’s defenses might not be enough protection.

With nothing left to lose, Cassidy must find the power inside herself to save Dominic, his coven, their city, and survive.

Eternal Reign is written in the 1st person narrative. But that didn’t deter me from reading the book. Eternal Reign is the second book in Melody Johnson “Night Blood Series”.

This book isn’t a stand-alone. I assume this book takes place after what happens in The City Beneath. Because we learn that Cassidy DiRocco doesn’t remember Dominic. But, so often someone would say his name and then the fog on her brain would clear.

With the Leveling taking place in a few days and both Dominic and Cassidy has either lost their powers or losing them, the leveling is going to be one-sided and both our characters will be facing certain death.

It was surprising that I did like this book, outside, the fact that the book just ending abruptly. The plot will have you captivated and the chemistry between Cassidy and Dominic was well-developed.

Would I continue reading this series? Yes, just to find out how the Leveling turns out, also, I am a big sucker for Vampires. (No pun intended) 😊

Book one in the Were Chronicles series.

Marissa Boyd finds herself drawn into a world she can never be a part of, complete with an Alpha wolf who takes whatever he wants. And he wants her.

Marissa Boyd knows, as a non-shifter, she doesn’t belong in Pack territory. She braves a visit to attend her sister’s mating ceremony and meets the shifter who will change her entire life and beliefs.

Gage Wolf knows Marissa is hiding a pained past. As Alpha, he’s used to protecting his Pack. Marissa challenges his authority like no one he’s ever met before. His desire to claim her is strong and his wolf won’t be denied. He’ll have her as his mate even if he has to fight to teach her the meaning of belonging to an Alpha. Even if it is Marissa’s feelings of not being good enough for him that he must battle.

This book was first published on April 20th, 2009. But when it comes to reading a paranormal romance about were-shifters and strong Alpha men, I am all in. And with a doubt Pack Alpha the first book in a 15-part series, written by Crissy Smith didn’t disappoint this reader.

Marissa wasn’t thrown out of her pack more so that she was driven to leave. See, Marissa was a non-shifter and to her old pack that wasn’t heard of. Driven out of her pack, to allow her sister to thrive, Marissa didn’t know any other life except the one she was shown. So, what a surprise, while attending her sister’s mating ceremony and meets the shifter who will change her outlook on life.

Gage Wolf is used to defending his pack. And when his wolf sets his eyes on Marissa, his wolf won’t be denied even if it’s because of Marissa thinking that she’s protecting him.

There new attraction for each other would be put to the test when a visit from Marissa old pack members attends the mating ceremony.

Pack Alpha was a short read but packed a lot in that short time frame. A great book and an excellent start to a series.

“Bewitching, haunting and deliciously carnal.” -Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick for Unclaimed

He’s the man of her dreams
A long time ago, Zander Lorens was cursed to walk the earth stripped of his Dragon Clan powers. Every night, trapped in a recurring nightmare, Zander relives his darkest moment. He can hardly believe it when the dream changes and a beautiful young woman appears. Zander believes she’s the key to ending his torment. Finding her in the real world is one thing, but how will he convince her of who-and what-she really is?

She’s the end to his nightmare
Rena McHale uses her unique sensitivity as a private investigator, touting herself as a “human divining rod” and finder of the lost. By day she struggles with sensory overload, and by night her sleep is haunted by a fiery dragon shifter. Nothing in her life makes sense, until the man from her dreams shows up at her door with a proposition…

Undiscovered by Sara Humphreys will be the third book that I read. With Undiscovered being the first title in her new series Amoveo Rising. This story takes us on a wild journey of self-discovery.

Undiscovered one curse to walk alone and another cursed to dwell as a dragon, for all of eternity. Remind you of a certain movie right! (Underworld) but I hope this series has a happier ending than that franchise.

Zander was once a powerful dragon, until one day a curse rendered him unable to change into his alternate form. Now, he must find a way to break the curse before it’s too late. And he might just have found the answer.

Every night Rena is tormented by being burned alive by a dragon. Until, one night her dreamed changed, and she is saved by a voice.

Undiscovered was a nice pass time to what I would call a boring day. It had a nice plot and great character development.
