Review – Secrets of a Wolf by Kelly Abell

secrets-of-a-wolfSecrets of a Wolf (Guardians of Spirit Rock Book 1)

by Kelly Abell
✩✩✩✩1/2

For all the suspense, mystery, and bad things happening in the town of Spirit Rock. I found the book to be light-hearted. Possibly because while all the horrid things are happening, the characters survive without any traumatic scars. Yes, there are moments of freight, but there are also moments of hilarity, and the characters are fairly positive attitude. They’re fun. Cameron is sexy, and Daphne really gets herself into some interesting predicaments.

The only downside, or things that bothered me with the story, were minor and didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying the book. Although I do wonder at the main culprits motives. They didn’t make sense to me, nor that the results expected, would be the ones obtained. Needless-to-say, we can put it down to the poacher being a bit crazy, and leave it at that. Plus I was never sure what happened to the second culprit. At least not for sure. Who knows, that might have been on purpose. A villain for another day.

Overall the book was very well written and keep me happily reading. The characters were great, and I look forward to reading about the other brothers and their women. It should be a very exciting series.


SYNOPSIS

A tragic event ruins Daphne Valentine’s career as a K-9 cop and department veterinarian in Seattle. Devastated, she escapes to Spirit Rock, South Dakota, to start over as the vet for an animal wildlife rescue park. When she arrives, nothing goes quite as planned—especially when she meets her new boss for the first time and she’s almost stark naked. Not the greatest first impression…or is it?

A confirmed bachelor, Cameron Gray is shocked at his instant attraction to his new employee. He soon learns she carries quite a bit of extra baggage, but even so, his desire to possess the sexy vet ignites him with a need he and his wolf can’t ignore. But all is not what it seems…. What exactly drove Daphne to leave her successful career and move to Seattle?

When dangerous poachers bring the two together in the line of duty, Daphne discovers Cameron’s secret, forcing her to question every decision she’s made since arriving in Spirit Rock. Will the tender new love they’ve found be enough to hold them together or drive them apart forever?

Join the Gray brothers in Spirit Rock, South Dakota. Gifted with the power to shift into their own unique spirit animal, they have been bestowed with the enormous responsibility of watching over their ancestral canyon. Their strength and conviction will be tested…as will the depth and breadth of their heart and soul.

Title: Captive’s Kiss
Series: Watcher’s Kiss #3
Author: Sharon Kay
Genre: Adult, PNR Romance
Published: June 29, 2016
*previously published in the Gathering Darkness boxed set

It was only supposed to be one hookup. One hot night to ease the mating urge of his race’s fertile period.

But after scorching, up-against-the-wall sex in a darkened club, Tanner can’t get Saige out of his mind. And when he spots her the next day, in league with an enemy, he’s determined to uncover more about her than her delectable curves.

Saige knows Tanner is one of the good guys. And that’s why she can never see him again.

Her life has crumbled into a horrific turmoil, forced to aid criminals in kidnapping men for bloody arena fights. Held against her will, she has no hope of escape from her captors.

Determination rages through Tanner until he tracks Saige down. But rescuing her from her jailers’ sadistic whims means entering her underground hell. Posing as her victim and locked in a cell, he must find a way to save them both before he is pushed into a fight to the death.

Review_Purple

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Diva of Demons has done it again!

This engrossing story begins towards the end of a sultry day.  Not an ordinary day, but the summer solstice, where half the creatures of Torth were in their fertile period, and the need to reproduce rode them hard.  The scent of sex literally curled through the air of downtown Halice.  The Watchers (The protectors of Torth, and consisting mainly of Lash Demons), were off duty, and had only one thing on their minds.  Sex! 

Tanner and Saige (both lash demons) meet at one of the local clubs.  Wasting no time, they proceed to assuage their mutual needs.  As in, they have hot, steamy sex.  Orgasmic!  (Phew.  I needed a fan here.)  Once satisfied they part ways:  Tanner to return to Watcher Headquarters, and Saige to continue her search of strong males to lure back for her bosses for fodder for their underground fights.

Tanner can’t get Saige off his mind, or rid of her scent.  He swears her scent is everywhere.  Places she shouldn’t be, until he finds her with his enemy.  Deep down, Tanner knows that something isn’t right, and doesn’t stop until he discovers the truth.  Of course, that leads to a whole other kettle of fish……

Sharon Kay has done an outstanding job of setting the stage for this entrancing story.  Packed full of interesting creatures: some good, some not so good, and a few downright disgusting.  Good guy demons.  Or should I say…. Hot, sexy, alpha, good guy demons, countered by bad, ugly, mean, bully, demons.  But don’t worry; the good guys aren’t all goodie, goodie.  And the lady, while she might need some help, isn’t helpless. 

Miss Kay, packs a lot of story into this novella.  As well, as action, humor, some steamy sex, self discovery, and romance.  She makes it almost impossible to stop reading.  And face it, who would want too.   I loved returning to the world of the Troth, and the Watchers Warriors.  I heartily recommend this book. 

Although the first two books in this series were awesome, this book can easily be read as a standalone.

Captive’s Kiss Excerpt © Sharon Kay 2016

Saige threw back the shot, savoring the burn as it flowed down her throat. If she didn’t grab that male, there were dozens of others to choose from. Her captors preferred the most dangerous predatory species. They liked Deserati demons, but they also loved Lash demons, and she was certain she’d seen a group of Watchers walk in.
She glanced around, not spotting them at the moment. Probably already in rooms with females. Dudes as big as that had ladies hanging off them like vines at this time of year. She looked to the dance floor, which was just a packed mass of bodies. It was hard to tell where one creature ended and the next one began.
Her skin tingled, responding to the groping and kissing all around her. She needed to get relief, then she could do what she needed to.
She set down the glass and squared her shoulders, ready to sidle into the mass…and found her way blocked by a solid wall of muscle and a scent that almost brought her to her knees.
Smoke and a hint of dark spice clung to him. Well over six feet tall, he had short dark hair and green eyes that already gleamed with lust as he perused her from heels to hair. His eyes locked with hers, and she froze under the weight of his stare. Need, power, danger. And interest.
“Your name?” His deep voice rumbled around her, through her. His full lower lip looked bitable and her pulse quickened. He was a Lash, her species, and he was in the same hormonal boat she was. She could tell, even though she couldn’t resist a quick peek at the bulge behind his zipper.
“Saige.” She took in his enormous biceps and shoulders and inhaled once again. He was intoxicating, dreamy, sexy, and hot as hell.
A group of males pushed to the bar behind her, jostling her, and the Lash’s arms went around her shoulders, tucking her close. Her breath hitched at the sensation of being pressed against that wide chest, and she took another greedy inhale. She rubbed her cheek on the soft black cotton of his T-shirt.
“I’m Tanner,” he said, and she felt the words vibrate from his body the same way she heard them in her ears. “Let’s go somewhere quieter.”
“Gods, yes,” she murmured, and let him lead her around the bar to the dark area of private rooms in back.
His hand gripped her hip and he allowed zero space between them as he pushed through the crowd. His fingers felt magical, each tip a spark to her need. Gods, she was so overdue for this. She’d waited too long. She might orgasm just from him touching her over her clothes.
Oh, who was she kidding, she didn’t care how it happened. It just needed to happen in the next minute or she’d combust.
Tanner. She said his name in her mind, letting the syllables roll around. So sexy and strong. She felt something hard concealed at the side of his thigh. A blade. He had to be a Watcher.
The elite warriors were the self-appointed peace enforcers of the realms. They were honorable, but could be merciless to species who took unfair advantage of less fortunate ones. They were the good guys, the white knights…but their sex drives were just as insane as everyone else’s right now.  She slid a hand around his waist, dragging it slowly down his muscular ass.
He growled and shoved open a door that had been left ajar by a fae couple who’d just left. In one fluid move, he kicked the door shut and pinned her against the wall.
“You want this, Saige?” His hands circled her biceps and slid down to her wrists, leaving a trail of goose bumps. “You want me?”
“Yes. Now.” She captured one of his big hands and brought it to her lips, sucking his first finger into her mouth.
His eyes glowed bright green and he gritted his teeth. “Fuck, woman.” His free hand went to the center zipper of her corset—who the hell had time for hooks and laces—and pulled it down.

Locking emotions away is how Scorpio survived years as a conscripted killer. Now, as a Lash Watcher, he uses the same lethal skills to help his fellow warrior demons maintain peace in the realms. When a mission goes awry, he finds himself a thousand miles from home with no weapons or comms. Injured and alone, he is taken in by a group of witches who know him well.

And want him dead.

Tessa’s affinity with metal makes her one of the most powerful witches in her coven. Her deepest wish is to stop the oppression of her people—a direct result of her former leader’s murder.

Even from behind bars, the longer Scorpio stays, the more he unsettles Tessa and she questions all she thought she knew. Choosing him will put everyone she cares for at risk. He’s nothing like she expected, and the last thing she could dare to want.

Review_Purple

 

Five Stars of Awesomeness!  

Sharon Kay has done it again.  Assassin’s Kiss totally rocks.  I was riveted from the first sentence and held captive until the end.  Scorpio and Tessa are intriguing characters that you can’t help but want to get to know, as well as the rest of the cast and crew.  

This was the second book in the series, but it reads fine as a stand alone.

This book made my top ten of the month!

Long Excerpt:

My head is still pounding when my eyes flutter open the next day. My brain is throbbing inside my skull and I punch the pillow underneath me, scaring Jinx out of his slumber. He meows in protest before hopping off the bed. Looking around, I’m in my bed. How did I get here? I groan in pain as I prop my pillows up and lean my head back against them. It’s then that I feel the eyes on me. Tilting my head straight again, I glance out my window. My eyes lock with those big brown eyes of Jared’s across the way. He looks down to his phone and back up again. My phone chimes with an incoming text.

“UGHHH!” I moan, blindly reaching for it. It slips a few times before I grasp it between my fingers and look down to read.

How are you feeling?

Closing one eye, I text back, Like someone ran over me with a truck, then backed up and ran me over again.

Lowering my phone, I watch as he smiles from my text and disappears from view. I’m trying to piece last night back together; it’s like a fragmented mirror that has shattered all over the corners of my mind. I remember laughing with Ro about her sexual conquests and then I remember red and blue lights and… Jared. Starting to feel hot, I throw the covers off of me and lay like a starfish, trying to get my mind to focus. Glancing down, I notice I’m wearing my pajamas. Before I can process any further, the door to my room creaks open. Jared walks in with a cup of water and a closed fist.

“How did you get in?!” I yelp, trying to sit up in bed, and pulling the covers back over my braless tank top.

“I left the back door open when I left last night,” he informs me as he opens his fist to show me he brought a hand full of Advil.

“You brought me home last night?” I rub my head before reaching for the pills and water.

“Yup, after you called me to pick you up from the police station.”

“I WAS WHERE?!” I scream as water comes spraying out of my mouth.

“Police station. Apparently, you popped a guy in the face.” He smirks.

I squint my eyes, vaguely remembering the heavyset guy that tried grabbing my ass in front of the bar.

“Whoa!” I have to lean my head back against my pillows when the information begins to become too much for me. “If you took me home, how did I get into pajamas?!

The smile that crosses Jared’s face is a mixture of a blush and a sly smirk that makes my insides twist with anticipation and excitement. “Jared…”

“That… you did on your own. I had nothing to do with that!” He holds his hands up in surrender.

“What? I just stripped in front of you!”

“Well, once you got your shirt off, there was really no stopping you…” he teases and my eyes widen in embarrassment.

“Oh my God!” I slump down, pulling the covers back up to my face. “Did we… ya know…” I mutter, completely mortified now.

“Uh, that would be a no.”

“Oh, thank God!” I sigh.

“Thanks a lot!” He comes to his feet now, turning to look out the window.

“Not like that, it’s just … I don’t like to do things I’m not conscious for.”

“Yea, completely plastered girls that get arrested and throw up in bushes are really sexy!” His voice drips with sarcasm.

“I threw up?!This just gets better and better.

“Twice.”

“Twice?” I’m mortified, staring at his amused face.

“Well, after the first time I thought maybe you needed something to eat.”

“Oh no…”

“Yeah… I’ve never seen someone eat a Big Mac that fast before…” He stares at the wall as if remembering my weak moment.

“Oh my God!” I groan, throwing the covers over my entire body. I curl up in a fetal position, planning to never come out again. The room grows silent. It’s starting to get hard to breathe under the sheets when I feel the mattress by my feet cave slightly.

“Come on, it’s not that bad. We all have our moments.” He pats my feet through the sheets.

“Just when I think I’ve reached rock bottom, things just seem to drops out from under me and I’m at an all new low!” I roll over, trying to pull the covers with me, but Jared’s weight prevents it. My head comes peeking out as I roll over, facing away from him.

“April, I think I just determined your major.”

“What?” I curiously twist to look at him again.

“Drama. You’re such an actress. Now, put your big girl panties on and get up!”

I stare at him for a second; did he just say what I think he said? He waits about two seconds before getting up and opening a drawer to my dresser. “Are they in here? Nope!” He closes it and opens another.

“STOP!” I scream, stumbling out of bed, horrified.

“How ‘bout this one?”

“Okay! Okay! I’m up!” I slam the drawer closed just in time to save myself further embarrassment when Jared eyes my plain old undergarments. I sigh when the pounding in my head launches my stomach into action and I collapse onto the corner of the bed.

“You okay?”

“I refuse to puke again!” I respond, taking another deep breath. “Jared…”

“Yea…”

“I could use some donuts.”

“Okay.” He pauses for a few seconds, looking down at his feet before adding, “I’ll be outside then.”

And he leaves me alone in my room.

Short Steamy Excerpt:

“Why, Jared Hoffman, do you not want this?” I tease, slowly unbuttoning his shirt.

He smiles, his hands bracing themselves on the bed at either side of my head. “I didn’t say that… it’s just I don’t want to rush anything.”

Jared’s shirt falls open when I finally reach the last button. His perfect abs are shadowed and defined by the moonlight. My eyes start up his chest. “Rush?” I whisper softly as my hands graze their way up his biceps that frame my face. “Jare… this has been seven long years in the making. I think we’ve waited long enough.”

He pauses for a second. I hear his breath hitch in his throat as his dark eyes study my face. For some reason, I’m surprised when I feel Jared’s lips on mine. The passion between us is renewed at my admission. It’s my turn to moan against his lips. My legs automatically slide up and down his, causing my dress to hike up slightly before my legs wrap themselves around his waist. His hands make their way up my side slowly as if ingraining into memory the curve of my body. My hands have automatically found their way to his belt. I slip my fingers through it and release the hook, swinging it open. Before I know it, I’m unbuttoning his jeans. That’s when I feel his hands squeeze me tight. His lips leave mine for the first time since I spoke, and I feel them slowly trace their way down my neck. My fists clench against the skin on his waist.

“Oh, Jared,” I groan.

His body freezes above me for a fraction of a second. His head lifts out of the crook of my neck to meet my eyes again.

“Do you know how long I’ve waited to hear you call my name like that?” he whispers.

My hands find their way to his face and mingle with his hair. “There’s more where that came from.” I shoot him a sexy smirk before pulling his lips back to mine.

Rating 4.8 stars ~ 5 Cups ☕☕☕☕☕

I’m so lucky honor won out against preference.  When I discovered this book was written in the first person and that it was a young adult, I wanted to stop reading.  Especially since I thought the lead female was an immature twit.  But for some reason, which I couldn’t remember I had not only agreed to read and review the book.  I had actively made the choice.  So I forced myself to read on.  And was rewarded!

Discovering April is the journey of a young woman named April, finding herself.  First she had to lose herself.  Remember I said she was a twit.  Well she grows up during this journey.  Not in age, but in self esteem, and wisdom, leaving the twit behind.  This is also a story of love and relationships.  Boyfriend – girlfriend, female bonding, and the strengths those friendships can give us.  This book touched me on many levels.  It made me smile, cry, laugh, give a shout now and then.  Most of all it made me glad that I had read it.  Even before I finished it, I recommended it to a friend.

As with most YA books, the story was light on stream, but it was heavy on chemistry.  The chemistry between Jared and April absolutely sizzles.  The story was engrossing and the characters had depth.  As did all the supporting characters  .  In fact, Miss Hutchinson was very good at teasing us with little snippets of Jack and Sera with an E, that I want to go read, no, I need to go read their story….

I was given an eARC of this book for an honest review.

Review – Midnight Shift Episode One by Renee George

 

☕☕☕☕☕ = Better than 5 starsMidnightShiftE1

Unique New Story Line with Lots of Heat and Intrigue.

Brilliant beginning for what promises to be an outstanding new paranormal ménage? The first episode only hints that Benie, Ian, and maybe Trace will be a trio. Either way this book rocks and I can’t wait to read Episode Two. Since it’s out. I’m off to read it now! 🙂

Intriguing story. Benie kick’s butt and changes colors to match her surroundings. How cool is that! Ian is the sexy, genius childhood friend/lover, and Trace. Is luscious on a stick. He reads minds and has a way with swords.

MidnightShiftV

 

One Sexy Slayer. Two Alpha Werewolves. A Dangerously Hot Romance.

(This is a serialized novel — see Author Note at bottom of blurb)
Benie Dilian hunts supernatural bad guys. Her ability to shift like a chameleon, to hide in plain sight, as well as her enhanced senses, makes her the ultimate killing machine. The only person in her life that she remotely trusts is her genius best friend—Ian Arent.

After a dangerous supernatural tracker attacks Ian, turning the human into a shapeshifter, Benie must not only find out who is behind the attack that nearly killed her best friend, but also find a way to help Ian deal with his new reality. She enlists the help of telepathic werewolf Trace Calder, a supe who specializes in mediation with the “other worlders.”

As Benie fights her intense attraction to both men, she knows she has more to worry about than losing her heart and soul. Soon, she finds out that the attack on Ian is only the beginning of a journey fraught with danger and dark truths—and a prophecy that promises Benie a destiny she never wanted.

The Lion Kings by Renee George

**See Author Note At Bottom of Blurb**
For six months, Madeline Granger has been overwhelmed by an almost magnetic pull that has kept her on the road, traveling all over the Midwest and erotically dreaming of two men… her lion kings. When she wakes up in Kansas, just outside the perimeter of a traveling carnival, it miraculously feels like coming home. But after she meets the two men who shouldn’t exist outside her own mind, it’s hard for her to reconcile that her dream lovers are two very real and sexy men, not imaginary. All she knows for certain is she wants them both.

Adam Michael’s and his brother Cage, both lion-shifters, not only run Pantheros & Co Carnival, they are the stars. Making a home for his crew of misfits and outcasts was Adam’s dream. Cage was his most desperate rescue, and after a profound loss, Adam worries that Cage’s grief will drive him toward a brutality he can’t come back from.

The last thing either lion-shifter expected was Madeline Granger. She might be the answer to Adam’s prayers, in more ways than one, if he can get Cage to look past his pain. But, can Adam and Cage see Madeline as more than a substitute Clary? And can Madeline rescue two Kings drowning in their own sorrow?

Maddie might want The Lion Kings to rule her body, but is she strong enough to rule their hearts.

☕☕☕☕☕ Review

I read this book in serial format, one book at a time, and loved every single second.  The first book hooked me with it’s intriguing story line.  Come on, who doesn’t love a lion shifter…. and we get two!  Awesome hunks of lioness aside, the unique personalities of the three main characters blend and complement each other well.  Their chemistry sizzles, and the story flows smoothly.  I gave each of these books, together and separately – 5 coffee cups (better than stars).  A first for me with a serial.

And now for those who don’t have the patience for the serial format,  Renee has released the complete novel.  With all the suspense and intrigue of a serial, without the wait.  That’s what I call ‘best of both worlds’.

The Lion Kings, Part Four by Renee George – Review

Queen of the cliff-hanger!  Renee George knows how to rock a serial.

Queen of the cliff-hangers is definitely a title Renee George has earned, as she really leaves you hanging, in the most torturous, delicious way.  The plot thickens, more of the supporting characters are revealed.  Some questions are answered, while others are raised.  And all the while, Maddie and her Lion Kings grow closer, ever reaching towards the elusive mating.  Maddie has their love.  Cage and Adam have their Queen, but will they be able to keep her?

Who killed Clary, will she get to Maddie also?  Will the Kings get to keep their queen?  These are only a few of the burning questions I’m left with.  Can’t wait for Part Five – the final conclusion where my questions will be answered.

Did I mention, that I absolutely love this serial?  I used to refuse to read a serial, couldn’t stand a cliff-hanger, but I read this as a favor, and have been addicted ever since.  Hot sexy alpha lion shifters, and a strong physic heroin, surrounding by an interesting carnival family.  What’s not to love?

I was given this book free of charge by the author for an honest review.

The Lion Kings, Part Three by Renee George – Review

The Lion Kings, Part 3 By Renee George

The Lion Kings, Part 3
By Renee George

☕☕☕☕☕ Review 

The queen of the serial still rules!  And she’s rocking it.

I absolutely love the flow of this book.  The gradual unfolding of the story line is superb.  While being pulled deeper into the lives of Maddie and her Lion Kings, with is surprising twists and turns, you can’t help becoming invested.  Riveting from beginning to end!

I was given this book free of charge by the author for an honest review.

Blurb:

(This is a serial — see Author Note at bottom of blurb)
For six months, Madeline Granger has been overwhelmed by an almost magnetic pull that has kept her on the road, traveling all over the Midwest and erotically dreaming of two men… her lion kings. When she wakes up in Kansas, just outside the perimeter of a traveling carnival, it miraculously feels like coming home. But after she meets the two men who shouldn’t exist outside her own mind, it’s hard for her to reconcile that her dream lovers are two very real and sexy men, not imaginary. All she knows for certain is she wants them both.

Adam Michael’s and his brother Cage, both lion-shifters, not only run Pantheros & Co Carnival, they are the stars. Making a home for his crew of misfits and outcasts was Adam’s dream. Cage was his most desperate rescue, and after a profound loss, Adam worries that Cage’s grief will drive him toward a brutality he can’t come back from.

The last thing either lion-shifter expected was Madeline Granger. She might be the answer to Adam’s prayers, in more ways than one, if he can get Cage to look past his pain. But, can Adam and Cage see Madeline as more than a substitute Clary? And can Madeline rescue two Kings drowning in their own sorrow?

Maddie might want The Lion Kings to rule her body, but is she strong enough to rule their hearts.

The Lion Kings by Renee George

“They are not blood, but experience has made them brothers. They are not gentle, but suffering has made them kind. They are not possessions, but love has made them mine.” — The Lion Kings

☕☕☕☕☕ Review

I read this book in serial format, one book at a time, and loved every single second.  The first book hooked me with it’s intriguing story line.  Come on, who doesn’t love a lion shifter…. and we get two!  Awesome hunks of lioness aside, the unique personalities of the three main characters blend and complement each other well.  Their chemistry sizzles, and the story flows smoothly.  I gave each of these books, together and separately – 5 coffee cups (better than stars).  A first for me with a serial.

Synopsis

For six months, Madeline Granger has been overwhelmed by an almost magnetic pull that has kept her on the road, traveling all over the Midwest and erotically dreaming of two men… her lion kings. When she wakes up in Kansas, just outside the perimeter of a traveling carnival, it miraculously feels like coming home. But after she meets the two men who shouldn’t exist outside her own mind, it’s hard for her to reconcile that her dream lovers are two very real and sexy men, not imaginary. All she knows for certain is she wants them both.

Adam Michael’s and his brother Cage, both lion-shifters, not only run Pantheros & Co Carnival, they are the stars. Making a home for his crew of misfits and outcasts was Adam’s dream. Cage was his most desperate rescue, and after a profound loss, Adam worries that Cage’s grief will drive him toward a brutality he can’t come back from.

The last thing either lion-shifter expected was Madeline Granger. She might be the answer to Adam’s prayers, in more ways than one, if he can get Cage to look past his pain. But, can Adam and Cage see Madeline as more than a substitute Clary? And can Madeline rescue two Kings drowning in their own sorrow?

Maddie might want The Lion Kings to rule her body, but is she strong enough to rule their hearts.
