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.

Beyond Reason (Texas Trilogy #1)

Beyond Reason (The Texas Trilogy) by [Martin, Kat]Beyond Reason by Kat Martin

My rating:

Publisher: Zebra

Sold By: Penguin Random House Publisher Services

Publication Date: May 30, 2017

Print Length: 400 pages


Five weeks ago Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats and the fear of failure, Carly has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.

Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.

But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.

Beyond Reason is a third persona story composed by Kat Martin. The setting was disheartening since the opening happens at a memorial service. One of Drake’s workers was murder and the truck commandeered. Do the police have a thought who the offenders were, or do they even truly mind. Thus, the obligation is dependent upon Carly to discover. With the assistance of a companion of her granddad. Carly and Linc go on a high-octane ride to discover who, and why of this riddle.

For a puzzle anticipation Beyond Reason was an alright read. I particularly appreciated the result of this story. I haven’t perused an excessive number of books by Kat Martin. Be that as it may, I may need to keep my eyes out for the second book in this new Texas Trilogy. Because I see with regards to mystery and suspense she knows how to catch a person attention.

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.

My Review: Normally I tell you what the books is about then tell you why I gave the rating that I did. For this review I am going to change it up a little.
Seal Brotherhood: Lucas is 5 stars all the way. It made you love the main characters Lucas and Marcy but at the same time made you hate one of the secondary characters, that would be Lucas soon to be ex-wife. I don’t know how or why Lucas would even want to have Connie back. Plus I hope Lucas gets smart and file for custody of their two kids Connie seems flighty to me. It was very steamy read with a bit of thriller suspense.
Lucas thought his leaving situation was temporary and that his wife would soon come to her senses and that he soon would be back home. The next morning he gets served with divorce papers. At the same time his soon to be ex-wife is on the mission to liquidate all their real estate holdings even the ones she doesn’t have any claim on by hiring Realtor Marcy Gelland.
Marcy Gelland tries to help Connie, but soon finds herself falling for Lucas. That is when the story takes off on all five cylinders. Once Lucas and Marcy gets together, Lucas has to go on a mission to stop a terrorist group from succeeding in their mission to take men from Seal Team 3 or Team 5 back with them. However, things start to go south when the terrorist group kidnaps women and one of them happens to be Marcy.

Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome #1)

51wgf-pfs3l-_sx304_bo1204203200_

With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…

My Review: I don’t know what to say. Mercury Striking was a read on speed. This was a thriller romance with an exclamation point on thriller. Mercury Striking is a story about a Scorpius bacterium that was released on the earth. Not by mad scientist but by innocent college students who one day came upon a meteorite which they preceded in cutting in half, thereby; releasing the harmful disease.

Mercury Striking is the first book in Rebecca Zanetti new thrilling post-apocalyptic romance which was introduced in the prequel Scorpius Rising. Lynne was a scientist on the CDC team that was injected directly with the Scorpius bacteria, in order to save her life, Nora Medina injected her with an untried serum which automatically turned her heart blue and the area around it.

After escaping a soon to be death sentence, Lynne trekked across a nightmarish landscape of death and madness looking for the one person who maybe the only salvation for mankind a damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong.

Jax Mercury would tell you he’s nobody’s hero. He’s just a man who’s trying to survive in a world that has gone completely mad, and if he helps save others in the process he will chalk that up to redeeming himself for the harm he committed in his younger years.

When he come across Lynne public enemy number one with a bullet if she was ever caught by other humans who blamed her and people like her for not stopping the bacteria from spreading, Both will soon realize that they have the same enemy “Time”. Will they have enough time to find the cure for the disease that has now claimed billions of lives or will time run out for them and the other survivors.

I could go on and on abut Mercury Striking but I am going to stop here and just say if you have the chance to purchase Mercury Striking do so you won’t regret the purchase. It’s a fantastic book that will pull you in for the hours it takes for you to complete the book and maybe longer than that since Mercury Striking is the first book and the next will be due out in September.
