"Boss with Benefits" by Talia Hunter

A wonderful, lighthearted falling-in-love story. One filled with strong, adventurous characters; a kick-ass woman and a caring but stubborn man. I don't do spoilers so you'll have to get this book to find out how and why they meet on a beautiful Fiji island, which includes a dangerous stalker and an old friend for our swashbuckling heroine and an Ill sister and bad memories for our hero. I recommend this book to all those readers who love a good romance with snarky women and drop dead gorgeous men.  Get this book here  or your favorite book site.  http://amzn.to/2l2GR4l

  

The 2nd book in Fated Mates of Somewhere, TX, "Rodeo Wolf"

This second book in the Fated Mate series is outstanding. The great world building in this series continues here as it did in the first book and in the Somewhere, Texas series. I absolutely loved the two main characters in this story and disliked the villain even more now than in book one. The packs have come together to discuss an unusual event and we also learn that there are serious problems within one of the visiting packs. The problem is caused by their pack leader. who treats his pack as breeding stock to further his own gains. We also have a pack that will soon have a new Alpha and because of past problems rules were put in place that keep any leader from having a mate. The story shows us tremendous strengths and weakness of the characters, especially those connected with fated mates and the internal workings of the packs. But we also have witty, snarky comebacks and amazing love. I don't do spoilers, but I will say that I love the way the authors always make sure to include characters from previous stories into the current ones; like cameo roles in a movie. I have to state here that every time I read one of these authors stories I say, "Wow, this is the best one." Guess what? They make me eat my words each time because BANG they blow me away with the new story. You will do yourself a great disservice if you have not started reading this new series, and if you've started go grab book 2 right now and I promise you will be reading it straight through the full moon.   Get this great book here or at your favorite book site. http://amzn.to/2yBAvMr

    

"Vistaria Has Fallen" by Tracy Cooper-Posey, is a great Military Romance with thrills and suspense

An unexpected read for me. I'm use to reading this author's amazing paranormal, time travel, as well as sci-fi books, and this read is just a passionate without those genres. We have danger and intrigue in a Latin country on the edge of a revolution. We have an American woman in trouble and an unknown man known only as the "Red Leopard" who helps her. But he's only unknown by that name for his real name is known by many. With the help of the people, everyone's freedom can be seen, but revolution is always hard and when the leader has an attraction for the American it can be even harder. I don't do spoilers, so you'll have to get this book to read about the fire and spirit of the "Red Leopard" and the people of his country. They will fight for their freedom, as well as the "American" who falls into the middle of it all and is willing to fight along side the man who makes her passion grow for not only him but his people as well.   Grab this page turning book now, here or at your favorite book site -  http://amzn.to/2gmswuf

     

The latest book in Jodi Vaughn's Rise of the Arkansas Werewolves, "Fall of a Blood Moon"

This series is written with a magnificent paranormal world building background and each storyline is filled with strong characters, emotions, thrills, suspense and wondrous, exciting romantic love. I've always loved the way the author keeps previous characters in your stories; as it should be in a good series. Book 7 is no different and is sooo good that I read it twice and each time without putting it down till the very end. The story is filled with such emotion; we have love, hurt, anger, hate. The reader gets drawn into a world of abusive control, lead by fear and love. I don't do spoilers, and have tried to convey the essence of the story, but I will say WOW what an ending. The next book, I know without a doubt, will blow me away.  Get this great book here http://amzn.to/2yqa500 or at your favorite book site and if you haven't started the series, what the heck you waiting for the first book is FREE:  http://amzn.to/2gdC36R

 

 

 

 

Carol McKibben's Book 1 "Snow Blood" in her Snow Blood Series

I loved the cover and the title and didn't even check to see what it was about. Just assumed it was another vampire book (which I love). You can imagine my surprise when I started reading it and got a little confused till I realized who was telling the story. I was surprised, it was so very different from every other vampire book I had ever read. I was delighted and enjoyed reading a paranormal story from such a different point of view. I don't do spoilers so I really don't want to say more, just know that if you like reading about vampires, and an Olympic God or two, a faithful companion, you will want to add this to your want to read list. I will say it's filled with loyalty and love. I haven't read the Season 1book and will definitely have to get it. Pick up your copy here :http://amzn.to/2y0v9fl, http://bit.ly/2yHO7ER

Carmen Falcone & 10 other great authors - "Married. Wait ! What !

The first story I've chosen to read in this set is Carmen Falcone's "Married to Trouble." Another home run for this author; her story is filled with not only a strong young woman, Clarissa, trying to show her father she can run a clean business, but an unsuspecting lawyer, Beck, trying to make partner in his law firm. The story is filled with humor and hot, sensual, steamy encounters. Both must work with her mobster father to make their dreams come true. Promising her father to safely drive her home to Vegas is not as easy as it sounds when his passenger has plans of her own. If he can do this one thing for the father he's a sure thing to bring his business into the firm and easily make partner. But her plans are not to go straight home to daddy, but to prove to dad that she is grown and woman enough run a business by being a wife. Surely being a wife will show him she's mature enough, right? Too bad Beck has no plans for being a husband. That's enough spoilers, you need to read the story to see how much trouble a young woman can cause when she puts her mind to it and how it effects everyone involved.

Second story I read was "About Time"  by Kim Carmichael. A quirky sci-fi romance; a story of a world which had to learn to live by time schedules in order to survive. Schedules for your entire life, including everything from housework, eating, to marriage and sex. But what if you were different than most and didn't believe in going through life according to a schedule. Read this very different but thoroughly entertaining romance story with a unique world building background.

Pick up this great set of 11 stories by 11 terrific authors and be ready to have some jaw dropping, sexy and humorous moments. Go get this anthology before it's gone, get it here or your favorite book site:

Billionaire Ever After BookSet - 22 stories by Margo Collins, Michele De WInton, Talia Hunter and19 other great writers

I will be adding more reviews to this set as I read the individual stories. It's safe to say that if these two stories are an example of the other 20, they'll be great. The first book I read was M.M. Chabot's "Save By Him." The heroine in the story has lost everything in a deadly car crash prior to the accident, she discovered her husband had lied to her. The hero finds that marriage to a woman he thought loved him was nothing but a sham and is able to divorce her when he accidently finds out what she's been up to. So here we have two people who want nothing more than to be as far away from love as possible. She became as close to a recluse as you can be, whereas he was happy playing the field. But fate always has it's way and a girl can't go wrong with a gay best friend to help you go out into the world. Low and behold, these two end up working together; he the rich owner of a detective agency and she, a newly hired investigator. That's it I'm not saying one more word, I don't do spoilers so if you want to know how these two damaged people find love among stakeouts, you'll have to pick-up this set of great stories

The second book I read was Talia Hunter's "Hot to Rock a Billionaire." A snarky humorous, lost everything, has everything, met again love story. She's crushed on him forever and while playing together in a band in high school he left without a word goodbye. All she wanted in life was to sing and all she found was frustration and hurt along the way and now, due to a car accident, she has lost everything. He was the lead guitarist of the band back, with a knack for technology, in their school days, and in love with her; but then left without a word of explanation. Their reunion is less than perfect when his car hits hers and they find each other again. She has her pride, he has money. Neither will admit their true feelings or circumstances. He insist on helping her, she says no; so he offers her a job pretending to be his date during an important meeting. I don't do spoilers so this is it. I will say that the unfolding of their story is worth the read and shows that rich or poor you can't get around loving someone.

 The third book was Michele De Winton's "Love Struck." I don't want to give any spoilers, so this is going to be hard. This story was absolutely wonderful, emotional, sad, happy, all in one great read. We have a struggling fashion stylist on her last leg of starting her own business and fighting for her life. We have a man at the top of his game in business, rich, good-looking but deep down never satisfied or happy with himself. They both have troubled backgrounds that have led them down the paths they've traveled; roads of fear, self-doubt, dissatisfaction. Their first business meeting is a disaster, making their first social, unexpected second meeting one as well. Words that hurt are hard to take back, so are actions taken. The author takes us through a mean spirited beginning, unexpected pleasure, then pain and hurt, to an eye opening change of inner self. All these steps lead to a beautiful love. That's enough, can't say more, except to say you must read their story and I hope it leaves you how it left me, JOYFUL and HAPPY with the world they discovered.

Krytal Shannan & Shannan Rys - Book 1 "Fated Wolf" in their new series Fated Mates of Somewhere, TX

 For readers of Krystal Shannon's Somewhere, TX series, we're in the same town but now in a different storyline; in this Book 1 of "Fated Mates of Somewhere,TX" I'm happy to say we will be running into some familiar characters. This book has a female wolf shifter who has tried most of her life to fit in with her pack and be accepted by her grandfather, even though he never accepted her Mom or forgave his son for their "decision". He fires her for not following his rules; this leads to her going out to drown her sorrows. Add to this mix a man who can't let go of things from the past and just wants to lead a life of one night stands and adventures with his pals. The two met and, after a night of way too many drinks, agree to one night of hot sex. Well you know things don't always turn out the way you think they are. They both end up confused after a night of mind blowing sex but fail to understand the real feelings behind that night. Once they realize what has happened things really hit the fan (if you know what I mean). This leads to fears and tears and even more confusion. Danger is ahead; can they both accept the truth and learn to live with it, or can they make difficult choices that will change their lives forever. I try not to do spoilers so hope I haven't left you more confused than intrigued. This is a magnificent, emotional start to what looks like another homerun for these authors.

Kayla Stonors 8th book in her Qui Treaty Collection

This is the author's next book in the Qui Treaty Collection Series, Book 8 Atone By Treaty. I'm not positive, but I think this might me my favorite. The two main characters are definitely sexually attracted to each other, but both hold the hate and prejudices of their races against one another. One is sickened by the attraction, the other confused, and their feelings only get more so when one has to rescue the other from a dangerous mission and a possible war in the near future. Aside from the race issue one has a fear of loss of control due to an incident in her past and this complied with the other being a prince, who is used to being obeyed and of a race she blames for the death of her brother. We have plenty of action and danger, both out in the field and in their private affairs. The sexual tension is thick and both have reasons for not wanting to be the one to give in. That's it no more spoilers, you'll have to grab this exciting, sensual story to find out the surprises the author has for you as well as the outcome of their determination to keep away from each other. Be sure to get the other exciting stories in this series. Get it here today: http://amzn.to/2hxcY73

Rebekah Ganiere's newest book, Taming His Saber

This is a shifter book, but the world building behind it gives it a little sci-fi twist (to me anyway) which I love. We have a princess whose lost everything through war and has to escape her world (sabre shifters abound) through a portal that leads to earth. It appears that people from her world have done this in the past so she will not be alone. But much to her surprise it's someone she was close to when she was a girl and thought he was dead. It's hard for both of them as they have grown-up in much different worlds; after all she was a princes and he was a slave in their world. But it's a different story on Earth. But surprises and danger are coming and they must resolve their differences and feelings in order to stay alive. There is so much more I want to tell you, but I don't like to give spoilers. Let me say the story is not only action packed, but has secrets discovered, and love is found.

Ann Gimpel's first book in her Bitter Harvest Series, "Deceiver"

This is first book, in the authors Bitter Harvest Series. I had no clue as to what the story was about, well it turned out to be about a spell, that had gone wrong many years before, and it was slowly destroying the earth. The backstory for how this happened, and what occurred during those years, is fascinating. We have shifters, magic and vampires and humans as well; and as you read you'll learn the good, the bad, and everything in-between that is slowly poisoning nature in such a way that the earth is now on a course of total destruction. We learn that there may be one way to stop and revive the planet; but is it real or just a myth. If it's real can the different races put aside there distrust and hatred for each, and work together in time to save not only themselves, but the planet and every living thing on it. Will they agree to it, even if it means they might forever be changed, becoming something new, neither just vampire or shifter. This story is filled with surprising twist and turns, even impossible love and I can't wait to see what happens in

Ann Gimpel's Final book in her Dragon Lore Series, "Dragon's Dare"

I hope I'm able to explain why this is one fantastic read. First it was written by an author who writes across many genres and is terrific in all of them. This story is a cross between fantasy/magic/paranormal written with thrills, danger, death, surprises, humor and darn right sensual romance. We again meet many of the quirky, smart, beautiful, handsome, evil and even time traveling characters from the previous books in the Dragon Lore series; as you read the series the author's main characters are people we've met before. I love that, as it actually turns the individual stories into one epic story filled with adventure, evil, love and so much more. I don't do spoilers, but I hope my feelings for this book have come through. You have to get this book, the final one in the series; and you will definitely get a better understanding of the story if you have read the first three in the series. What are you waiting for, go get it now. Get it here or at your favorite book site:

Ann Gimpel's Icy Passage

Wow, I didn't expect this. You never know what this author is going to give us as she writes in such a broad range of storytelling. I don't even know how to describe it; sci-fish, magical, scientific, even scary. I didn't at all know what was going to happen next. I loved the science behind it; it had magical aspects and at times I didn't know if it was going to turn into a horror story, or even a story of humankinds future, and it has a wonderful love story as well and what's love without some great sex. It was exciting to read and I loved every second of it. All the characters in the story were amazing and I can't wait to see if the author will write a second book based on these characters; I really hope she does. I sure didn't do any spoilers did I? I really am just trying to impress on you how it made me feel. Kudos to Ann Gimpel, she did it again. Grab this terrific book here or at your favorite book site: http://amzn.to/2wq0J6F
