BURN BRIGHT

AN ALPHA AND OMEGA NOVEL

BLURB:

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.
With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…

BURN BRIGHT AUDIO BOOK 

 

REVIEW:

I love this series, and every book gets better. Charles and Anna make a great team. Some of their adventures have taken away from the pack. This one seemed to involve most of the pack we know, and some of the Wildings that we don’t.
I am not going into any details and give anything away. I know it is one my great pleasures in life to read a new Patricia Briggs novel. I will say this is must read for fans of this series. If you have only read The Mercy Thompson Series, this it set in the same world and begins with a short story from an anthology called On The Prowl which was called Alpha and Omega. This is also available in a digital copy available. This is Anna’s story, and how she met Charles. As I enjoy reading a new Patricia Briggs I also enjoyed the  Audiobooks which is narrated by HOLTER GRAHAM who brings this wonderful book to life for me.

FIVE-STARS

The first book that introduced Charles and Anna, and it wowed me.

This is a must read, as introducing Charles to Anna, in shows the way Anna has grown into who she meant to be since meeting Charles. It was a pleasure read the growth of Charles and Anna through each book.

OLFK_TEASER1

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…

OLFK_TEASER3

REVIEW:

This is the first book in a new series called Heartbreak Hotel, where you go to get over your heartbreak. In this case we meet Lilly who has come with her friend Audra, who was left at the altar. Lilly is very worried about Audra when her locks herself in her room and doesn’t come out. All Lilly can think about was the best man Alec Thatcher, and the near miss with the chemistry between them.
Lilly is unaware that Alec is related to the family who own the resort, and his parents are celebrating 35th wedding anniversary with a weeklong celebration with friends and family.
It was entertaining to watch Lilly and Alec both only wanting a non-serious sexual encounter. Both have reasons not to become serious, but love waits for no one. A sweet and at times funny romance that leaves you with a smile on your face.
A great start to a new series, where the scene was set in a lovely backdrop of the Heartbreak Hotel, and some of the characters that run the place

Blog Tour: MURDER NOTES ( Lilah Love #1 ) By New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones

Title: Murder Notes
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Lilah Love #1
Release Date: March 27, 2018
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…
As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
 
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?
 
I scan the ocean, expecting it to turn to blood, but it simply crashes to the shore.
 
I turn to the house and take a step, then stop abruptly, a shadow flickering by the house. A shiver runs down my spine. There it is again. Another shadow. Someone is there. It’s then that I flash back to being on this very sand, with Kane grabbing my arms and saying, “I’ll take care of it.” And I let him, and did so without asking questions, until it was too late to change the outcome. Because I was weak that night and he was strong. But I am not weak anymore.
 
I pull my weapon and start running for the house, wind in my hair and face, my heart thundering in my ears, and I don’t stop until I’m staring at the blood splattered all over the patio glass, some kind of note pinned in the center. Adrenaline surges through me, but I am in my Otherworld now. I retain my cool. I walk to the patio door, using the end of my shirt to open the door, and then I systematically search every inch of the house. When I know I’m alone, I walk to my bag, pull on gloves and then walk back outside, yanking the note off the door. Returning back inside, I lock the door and pull the blinds and then I open the note. At the top is the alphabet, pasted in paper letters, with an X across the letter A. The note reads:
 
A is for the Apple a day that keeps the doctor away. But a doctor couldn’t help him, could he?
 
I KNOW.

To celebrate the release of MURDER NOTES Lisa is giving away TWO Lilah Love Mugs PLUS a Kindle Fire Tablet!

It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.
 
Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT series.

REVIEW:

It doesn’t matter what I read of Lisa Renee Jones, I get pulled into the story to the exclusion of anything else. I know this would be a murder investigation but that was it. As with any book written Lisa, we have a strong intelligent female FBI agent Lilah Love, who was as thorny as any detective I’ve read about.
Coming from a rich background and being attractive is not an asset for an FBI profiler who moved to LA from The Hamptons to escape the family name. Unfortunately after a string of murders Lilah has to go home to follow the killer and straight into her past.
This was great I love every minute of this book, I don’t where to start except I can’t for wait for the next one. The longer the book goes on, the more layers and players appear. Until it appears like there is no one for Lilah to trust, including some of her family.
If you love Lisa’s complicated storylines you will be hooked, and waiting for book number two. This is so different for Lisa’s other works where the love story is not centre stage. The is about an FBI Profiler, and her story. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. This is definitely a cut above normal.

ARC Review: FEARLESS, From Wall Street Journal and New York Times Bestselling Author CARLY PHILLIPS @carlyphillips

 

From Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a powerful new story of love, hope and redemption, of finding light in the darkest places.

Fearless, an all-new emotional standalone by Carly Phillips is now LIVE!

fearless_frontcover

Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn’t get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.

Except Halley Ward isn’t just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane’s usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don’t expect more than he’s willing to give.

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he’s hooked. She says she’s not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they’ve made. Then it’s Halley’s turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she’s finally coming to believe she deserves

Fearless-AN

REVIEW:

This is the first book in Rosewood Bay Series, but each a standalone. As I write this review the snow is falling and I can’t get warm. So strolling along the beach in the summer had me hooked, joking aside it was an enjoyable read. At times sad for Halley and what happened to her in foster care.
I have to say Kane is definitely book boyfriend material. Kane and Halley had known each since she was 13 and being bullied at school. Kane had stood up for her, but hadn’t seen her for years. So when Halley arrives at his garage Kane is overwhelmed and know he wants to get her on a date. It was beautiful to watch them fall in love, and Halley blossomed as she came to love and trust him.
There is lots going on in the book, and I don’t want to give anything away. We have some world building or should I say sightseeing, and I will be happy to visit again when Breathe comes out. This is a lovely romance Halley and Kane were perfect together, but with some real life issues for the couple had to work through.

Series: Skydancer, Book 1

Publisher: T. M. Miller

Released: Feb. 14, 2018

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Briana turned her back on her magical heritage to chase her dream career, but now a spell cast with her grandmother’s dying breath has unleashed her dormant Oracle powers, drawing her into a world of dangerous power and cryptic prophecy.

Thanks to her family’s tragic history, Bri is a pariah in her hometown, and the only other witches she can turn to are her childhood best friend, Astrid, and Kean–her first love. They are convinced it’s destiny that has reunited them and determined to help break the curse on Bri’s bloodline.

But the longer she stays, the more people die.

Tortured by chaotic visions of fire and blood, Bri must harness her magic and navigate the dangerous waters of her past–and past life–to unmask the evil hunting in her shadow before it kills the only loved ones she has left.

Because she has a secret of her own. One she already died to protect. And as memories of her ancient rival become clear, so does her grim future…unless she can change it.

Gwen is living her happily ever after in Seattle. She’s a nature lover, science geek, and spiritual explorer, with a nose for well-aged tequila and a pin-up fashion obsession. When not chasing butterflies to hidden waterfalls or cavorting through the Emerald City, she can be found in a cozy chair reading, or brewing up tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

I was attracted to this book by the cover and the synopsis and couldn’t wait to listen. After 11 hours of being immersed in the Zyne world I now feel like I’ve lost my best friends. Kean, Astrid and Briana. The narrator managed to pull me into story so much I now feel bereft.
The author has created a unique and interesting world that I hope to revisit when book two comes out. A magical world with so many layers. The world building conjures a rich world and I was there with them.
Briana is forced back to a life she escaped many years before when her Grandmother and sister are killed in a car crash. When she arrives in Evergreen Cove she discovers their deaths were no accident. Before long the only way to protect her love ones is to embrace her power and heritage. Meeting her best friends Kean and Astrid make her realise this is where she meant be. It has been a pleasure to listen to a narrator, that made me forget there was one as I was so immersed in the story.

 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Gwen Mitchell. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

KRLongShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

Synopsis

A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA…

Think you know what it’s like being a baller’s girl?

You don’t.

My fairy tale is upside down.

A happily never after.

I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.

I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.

Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.

One of the NBA’s brightest stars.

Fine. Forbidden.

He wants me. I want him.

But my past, my fraudulent prince, won’t let me go.

“A raw, passionate, sexy, emotional rollercoaster.”

— Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

AN USE THIS ONE

REVIEW:

I don’t know why I’m surprised, because Kennedy Ryan’s writing always blows me away, after I’ve been pulled into the story so much, it feels like you there the story. You can’t get story out your head, I worked with victims, not victims, survivors for many years. Kendall still me shedding tears in so parts. Thank god the parts with August and Iris make me smile. I thought I was reading a sports romance, and it did involve sports. Baseball was a subject that brought Iris and August together.
The larger story arc opens your eyes, Kendall’s books often helps us to open our eyes to a wider issue, and has done so spectacularly that has made very difficult for me not give away spoilers.
I will say this book doesn’t leave your mind for days after and is clunking away in mine. This is not for the fainthearted, but is a special book to me. Five stars is not enough for writing this good.

ARC Review: MR. SO WRONG By R.C. STEPHEN is Now On KINDLEUNLIMITED @rcstephensbooks @EJBookPromos

Title: Mr. So Wrong

Author: R.C. Stephens

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 19, 2018

 

 


Mr So Wrong BC

Albert Walsh the Third has spent over a decade running away from his past. With no job and nothing to lose, he goes on a spontaneous drive to visit his sister in the mountains of Colorado.  The simple trip proves to be more than he bargained for.

 

Samantha Belmont is floating through life. She’s cast her dreams aside and now works on her papa’s ranch. One night, Sam is driving home in a snow storm after a hookup when she spots a car in a ditch and saves a man’s life. She doesn’t expect to develop feelings for the hot as hell stranger. Everything about him is wrong from his pointy shoes and fancy car to his age. Pushing him away would be the smart move.

Only Al can’t be pushed around anymore. Maybe it’s because she saved his life or maybe it’s because this cowgirl is completely different from every other woman he’s been with. 

Problem is Sam has secrets of her own. Secrets she doesn’t want Al to find out because if he did he’d run in the other direction. She pushes him away even though he melts her panties right off—literally. There is more than just her heart that needs protection. Al won’t give up fighting for the feisty cowgirl’s attention. Tempers will flare and hearts will be broken. And Sam’s plans to never settle down will be torched like the inferno of passion raging between them.


 
 

REVIEW TAG blog_review

Mr So Wrong is about Al from Mr All Wrong, and takes place after the action in Mr Wrong. After his friend decides to not run for President. Al hasn’t a clue what he wants to do. So he decides to spend Christmas with his sister Izzy in deepest Colorado. On the way there, he is caught in a snowstorm, and gets in an accident which leaves him in a ditch unable to get the car out.
Along comes Sam on her way home, and she see Al in his car and rescues him. Al is suffering from hypothermia and realises Sam saved his life. This was not what I was expecting from Al’s story. Sam had a heart of gold and was a good influence on Al. This was an unexpected romance, nothing like I expected. I enjoyed the side characters, and Sam and Al were alike in many ways and they fell hard.
This was a lot of fun, and it was a joy to get to know Al especially watching him falling in love with Sam. This is a funny hot sexy romance and I enjoyed it all.

READ MY REVIEW:

ARC REVIEW: MR ALL WRONG By R.C. STEPHENS

R.C. Stephens was born in Toronto, Canada. She graduated from York University with a master’s Degree in Political Science.

R.C. is an avid reader, so when she isn’t cooking for her clan or on her laptop writing, she’s snuggled tight with her Kindle devouring any romance novel she can. Okay, with the exception of Thursday nights. She makes time for Scandal and Vampire Diaries. She’s a fan of drama and suspense but she’s also a sucker for a happy ending.

Her husband was her first teenage love. They live together with their three children in Toronto. Loving Canadian winters she could never think of living anywhere else.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that . . . she’s a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.

But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

AN

REVIEW:

I would say thank you to Skye Warren for returning us to the Den in Tanglewood. Where we meet male escort Hugo who only works Saturday nights as he is at the top of his game. When he is sent to L’Etoile hotel penthouse suite, and there he meet Bea a beautiful young woman who is also a virgin.
I not going into more of the story as you have all read the blurb, but this story is much more than you expect. Both Bea and Hugo have demons left over from earlier in their lives, and they live with them every day.
I really enjoyed this love story set in a place we’ve become familiar with. This is completely standalone, but introduced some new characters that I am sure we will meet again. This was a beautiful love story told completely from Hugo’s POV and yet I was unaware of that until now. The writing was addictive I was so immersed in the story, and enjoying Hugo falling in love I didn’t notice much else. I can’t recommend this book enough.

Kennedy Layne’s UNLOCKING SECRETS is available today! If you’re a fan of romantic suspense, you do not want to miss out on her incredible Keys to Love series. Check it out below and pick up your copy now!

About UNLOCKING SECRETS

A grim discovery in Lance Kendall’s home proved one thing—the residents of Blyth Lake had a serial killer in their midst. Now Lance had unintentionally put a target on his back. Worst yet, he’s made the only woman he ever loved known to a murderer.

A trip down memory lane with the man who’d broken Brynn Mercer’s heart wasn’t the smartest thing she’d ever done in her life, but their reunion was a slow burn of temptation that she couldn’t ignore.

Together, they will only have one chance to correct the past. Will the hidden secrets he uncovered threaten their love or solidify it for a future that has always been out of their reach?

REVIEW:

Unlocking Secrets is about Lance’s homecoming. Lance is the baby of the family. After 12 years in Military Service that means is as well trained as his brother, and considering how dangerous his home town is he needs to be.
Lance’s high school sweetheart Brynn now owns the town’s only decent bar. It doesn’t take long to realise they still feel the same way, and gradually they work their way back to each other.
More evidence is found about the murdered girl, and the community is in uproar, not knowing who to trust. A dangerous slice of life in Blyth Lake for members of the Kendall family. The love story between Brynn and Lance comes to a satisfying conclusion. To find out who the serial killer is we need more clues that hopefully can be found in Unlocking Lies and Jace’s homecoming. This series is becoming addictive with each book pulling me into the community in this small town.

Get a sneak peek at UNLOCKING SECRETS:

“Have dinner with me tomorrow.” Lance waited for Brynn to either accept his invitation or try to find an excuse as to why that wouldn’t be the best of ideas. Honestly, he thought it was a fantastic suggestion. He gently rested his hand on hers when it was obvious she was going to stand and push her stool back. “I’ve missed you for far too long, blondie.”

Brynn pursed her lips to keep from smiling at the old nickname he’d given her back in high school. She’d gone through a phase of listening to the old rock band, and he’d caught her singing at the top of her lungs at one of the intersections in town. It was in that moment when she hadn’t thought anyone was watching that he’d caught a glimpse of the carefree woman she was on the inside. That one hapless unguarded moment had captured the heart of a teenage boy.

There were times throughout the last twelve years that he wasn’t sure he’d ever gotten his heart back, because he’d never been able to fully commit to any other woman. Then again, it might have had to do with the fact that he’d been deployed every so many months.

Military life was certainly hard on relationships, let alone committed ones.

“We went our separate ways, Lance,” Brynn said softly, though he could hear her regret. Still, she slowly pulled her hand from underneath his. “We can’t change what was done.”

“You’d be surprised at what could be changed if you want it bad enough.”

Lance stood and reached for his wallet, but the narrowing of her caramel colored eyes had him rethinking his gesture.

“This was two old friends having a drink,” Brynn said, tilting her head to one side as if she were sizing him up for some reason. “I’m not open for business.”

She only ever looked at him like that when she was about to propose something that would no doubt get them in trouble. He held up a finger and tossed her words back at her good-naturedly, though he respectively disagreed with her belief.

“We can’t change the past, as you said, so I’d rethink whatever it is you’re about to suggest.”

“Touché.”

Lance waited a few more seconds, hoping that she would throw caution to the wind and propose whatever had been on her mind.

“Stubborn,” Lance muttered with a shake of his head, her laugh ringing out over the bar as if it were Christmas. He hadn’t realized how much he’d missed home until this very moment. What surprised him most was that he thought of her as home. “I have missed you, blondie. I can’t help but wonder how much time we’re both going to waste pretending we’re just old friends.”

About the Keys to Love Series

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.
