The Highland Protector series brings to life four mouthwatering Celtic brothers in twenty-first-century North Carolina—where the lasses are anything but tamed.

Highland warrior Alec MacDara and his brothers traveled forward in time to protect the sacred Heartstone. Their cover? Owners and operators of a theme park called Highland Life and Legends. As the chairman, Alec has been fending off requests to film at the breathtaking property. It’s only because of the charming correspondence from an enterprising production assistant that he agrees to a meeting at all. That’s when Alec meets a woman whose lush curves make him forget, for the first time, all about tenth-century Scotland.

A lowly assistant for her sister’s motion picture company, wannabe screenwriter Sadie Williams is shocked when Alec agrees to let them film at the park upon one condition: that she report to him daily. Sadie’s sister always told her that their parents only adopted her because they felt sorry for the ugly little stray. But Alec looks at Sadie like she’s the most tempting creature in the world. And with his gleaming, musclebound body stripped down to nothing but a hip-hugging kilt and boots, Alec clearly knows a little something about temptation.

Get swept away with Sadie’s Highlander written by Maeve Greyson. Some people believe that time traveling can occur and then there are those, who only believe in the known. But since this is fiction, anything can happen.
In Sadie’s Highlander, we’re introduced to an entire family that traveled years into the future to protect the sacred Heartstone. And what better cover to do this is by operating a theme park called Highland Life and Legends. Alec doesn’t have a problem with a filming crew coming to the park as longs as one enterprising production assistant comes along for the ride. Well, what a ride it was, for Sadie’s life was full of nothing but an adventure from the time she was adopted into Williams’s family.
Sadie’s Highland has a wonderful plotline, even though this was a time-traveling – Highlander romance. It was anything but the run of the mill. Sadie’s Highlander didn’t spend too much time on the time-traveling even though it was mention several times during the story. But it did spend more time on the romance between Alex and Sadie.
Sadie’s Highlander was a winner for me. Like any story, it did have its downsides that might not be an issue for some readers.
For those readers who like Time travel, Hot Celtic men then Sadie Highlander is that story that you might want to add to your list of reads this Fall.

Two strangers—one warm and human, the other deadly and craving—become pawns in an all-out vampire war as this series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga heats up.

As an energy vampire, Halo enjoys the chase for human blood—if it’s pure and consensual. But Halo goes from hunter to hunted when he is knocked unconscious and taken hostage by vicious sycophants. As he comes to, he realizes that he’s naked, starving, and trapped in a sealed room. With him is a deliciously human female, tempting him to feed—except her blood is heady with the scent of poisonous drugs. Never has nourishment been so near, yet so far . . . and it’s all part of the sycophants’ sick game.

The last thing Felice Mendoza remembers is everything going black. She awakens stripped, drugged, exposed, and alone—with a vampire. Halo is at once savage and tender, terrifying and alluring. Felice senses that her only chance to escape depends upon his survival. Given the choice between Halo and his enemies, Felice surrenders to his ravenous hunger. It’s a calculated risk—and a delirious pleasure. As Felice is ushered into a world as dangerous as it is desirable, their fight for deliverance is only the beginning.

After reading the first book in Jacquelyn Frank new series The Energy Vampires, I jumped at the chance to read the second. The only thing I must say is Nooooooo!!! What happened? This book totally lost me. The writing was lopsided.
Hunger takes place in one room, and that is where the two main characters stayed until the last few chapters to try to tie the book out. Nothing really happened. Halo was nabbed along with a human Felice who was to become Halo ultimate downfall. To circumvent Roth’s plan to change Halo into a sycophant Halo and Felice must work together.
I found myself falling asleep numerous times while reading this book. This would be the first book that I’ve read and didn’t like that Jacquelyn Frank has written. The plot behind this series is still interesting, but Halo and Felice story was very disappointing.

Fierce Obsessions is one of those books that I put off reading. Now, after completing this beautiful story, I am wondering why. Riley Porter was introduced in book 5 of the Phoenix Pack. If you never read book 5, my advice would be to stop and go back and read Savage Urges.
Riley Porter is a raven shifter whose life was filled with discord, pain, and sorrow. And now it seems that the fates are not finished playing games with her life.
Tao Lukas is the Phoenix pack enforcer. He doesn’t like lone shifters, especially ones who might be carrying secrets that might come to harm his pack. But, for some reason he can’t stop the attraction he feels towards the all secretive Riley Porter.
It was nice to see all the old characters from the other books make an appearance. Fierce Obsessions is that one book that you might just want to read repeatedly all summer long. The interaction between Tao and Riley was beyond hot. I really liked how this story turned out it was rather entertaining.

Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.

But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?

Cougar Bait is fun, sexy and will take readers on an emotional thrill ride.

Cougar Bait is book #2 in Evangeline Anderson Cougarville series. What can I say…I thought this book was pretty fun. The book was aptly named. A younger man falling for an older woman. The Older woman trying not to fall in love with the younger man. But when that man is a hot shifter. What can a woman do…? but sit back and enjoy the ride.

Unfortunately, I never read the first book in this series. I just might have too, this one certainly kept my attention. I liked how sweet and crafty Liam was to make Samantha fall for him. Even though I found Samantha annoying at times.

Nonetheless, Evangeline Anderson has done what she set out to do. Writing characters that some readers could relate too.

Shadow Reaper ( Shadow Riders #2)

Series: Shadow Riders #2

My rating:

Author: Christine Feehan

Publisher: Berkley

Print Length: 397 Pages

Publication Date: May 30, 2017


 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her scorching-hot series starring a Chicago crime family that has built its empire in the shadows…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood—but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own…

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her—a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She’s someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco’s embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them…

As per Goodreads’ it ought to have taken me 7 hours and 53 minutes to peruse Shadow Reaper. All things considered, it just took this critic 5 hours to finish up Shadow Reaper the second title in Christine Feehan new series Shadow Riders.

A Little piece of advice. Figure out how to put a book down, particularly on the off chance that you should work the next morning. All things considered, this advice might be for me more than all you the readers. In any case, on to my review.

Shadow Reaper is a tension, thriller, romantic suspense. (Attempt to state that three times genuinely quick.) 😊 Told in the third person. Nothing stunning up until this point… right! All things considered, the stunning part is I was reluctant on obtaining this book. Yes, K. Yearwood who never missed a Christine Feehan new release almost didn’t buy a title in light of mixed reviews of Shadow Reaper. Try not to misunderstand me I would have read the book regardless, however, as opposed to buying, I would have gone to my nearby library and obtained the title. I took a risk and it paid off.

Shadow Reaper was past extraordinary. Only I could give Shadow Reaper more than five stars!
I am so eager in the wake of reading Shadow Reaper that I will try not to give excessive spoilers.

This story is about one of the many siblings of Stefano Ferraro whom we had the delight of meeting in Shadow Rider.

Ricco Ferraro’s story starts with a terrible fender bender, with just his sister-in-law, Francesca Ferraro, spouse to Stefano, trusting that he didn’t do it deliberately. Afterward, it was discovered that a specific part was defective.

The huge mystery wasn’t….Why did the accident happen? It wasn’t even….Who, was behind it? Despite the fact, that it ought to have been. It was…When! That is right. Ricco had an enormous mystery that he was keeping from his family. Now 10 years after the fact, he is forced to reveal his secret in order to save their lives.

Shadow Reaper was quick paced and I couldn’t put the book down until the last page was turned. Yes, I surrendered four hours of rest. In any case, I don’t regret not one moment of it. I would have kicked myself on the off chance that I would have put off reading Shadow Reaper.

So, in case you’re uncertain if you ought to buy this title. Give me a chance to be the one to comfort your psyche. Purchase the book you, you will love it.

For those of you who are Christine Feehan’s fans. Which I do include myself among the ranks. Christine Feehan went hard and fast on making Shadow’s Reaper the best so far in her new series. IMOP

There it is. All finished. I didn’t give too much away… did I? 😊

Pick up your copy of Shadow Reaper to meet the baddest family in town!

Publisher: Season Publishing

Publication Date: Jun 1, 2017

Jordan: New Orleans Magic is the first part of a three-part series penned by Rebecca York. It’s a paranormal romantic suspense.

Somebody is slaughtering supporters of Camille DuPree. Camille’s restaurant. Presently to protect her benefactors she employed a security organization. In any case, unbeknownst to Camille her past and present intersect when her old flame comes entering back into her life.

This book I couldn’t get into. I liked the puzzle, the character’s not really. Indeed, even the purpose for their separation had a Romeo and Juliet plot just with a more joyful closure. The plot was well developed. However, again the characters required somewhat more work.

#1 USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with the fifth book featuring the men and women of Devereaux Security Services.

Abducted as a young girl and raised in a strict religious cult, Jenna has no connection to the outside world beyond vague flashes of memory that seem to be from another life. Memories she clings to when the cult leaders discover her extraordinary ability to heal—and punish her. Years held captive and forced to do the cult’s bidding have turned Jenna into a meek, timid woman…or so they think. In truth, she is merely biding her time, waiting for the perfect moment to escape.

When a terrified young woman stumbles across Isaac’s path, Devereaux Security’s toughest recruit is intrigued by the beautiful, sheltered stranger. Jenna seems to know nothing of the world around her and refuses to tell him what danger haunts her, but Isaac will do whatever it takes to gain her trust. When it becomes clear that very powerful, dangerous people are after her, he vows to protect her at all costs… because with just one touch Issac knows he wants Jenna to be his—forever.

If you love to read supernatural, paranormal romance then you’re in luck. Maya Banks has a book just up your alley. It’s titled Just One Touch it’s the fifth book in her Slow Burn series. I read two others in this series, besides this one. So, picking this series back up I didn’t feel I was missing anything. Therefore, stand-alone this could be considered. But…you know there is always a but! But, I will still advise if you can, to read this story in order of publication. So, of course, I am going to take my own advice and purchase the others in this series.
Just One Touch is due for publication on May 23, 2017. This book is about 256 pages long. And if you read the previous titles, you will glad to know that those characters too, find themselves making an appearance.
Just One Touch was a quick read from beginning to end. With well-developed plot and strong characters that complement each other.
I found that I did enjoy this book significantly. There is a huge difference between the way she writes her action adventure and her paranormal/Supernatural titles. The big difference is there is more interaction between the characters in her paranormal titles than in her action adventure type titles.
Just One Touch I would recommend to paranormal/Supernatural readers. Or even to the readers that just is looking for something different.
