An impossible mission…

JAG Special Forces agents Huntley Anderson and Melissa Overton are hot on the trail of poachers when they’re suddenly saddled with two jaguar shifter cubs. They have to locate the parents, pronto—but who’s going to babysit in the meantime?

A lifetime of possibilities…

Huntley is a rough, tough jaguar shifter and an all-business agent, but he’s not going to let two abandoned youngsters come to any harm on his watch. Seeing her super-manly partner try to get the playful cubs under control stirs up some unexpected desires in Melissa, and she begins to feel like Huntley’s not the only one who’s in over his head…

I enjoyed this story and the characters in it. Huntley and Melissa made a great couple and…

Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs

Bookin' It

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Shifting Shadowsis an anothology that includes every short story set in Mercy Thompson’s world from older collections, plus four brand new stories, two of which are actually novellas. For me, the new stories alone were worth the price of admission, but I also like having all of these stories in one very nice collection.

I enjoyed revisiting some of the older tales that I had forgotten about, and I like all of the new ones, but my favorite of all is “Silver,” a novella that goes hundreds of years back in time to tell the story of Bran and Samuel, and the witch who made them werewolves. It was sad and dark, but beautifully done, and I will look at each of those characters a bit differently in future books.

If you are a Patricia Briggs fan and already familiar with Mercy Thompson…

BOOK REVIEW: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Book Two of The Lux Series

The Sentinels Series by Alexandra Ivy

Reviews by Ruckie

I just finished reading the two main books that Alexandra Ivy released in her fabulous Sentinels paranormal romance series.  Born in Blood and Blood Assassin are the type of high quality stories that devoted fans have come to expect from authors of this caliber, and new fans will definitely not be disappointed.  While lately it may seem that the PNR genre is beginning to be saturated with a lot of the same, many of our favorite authors and a few of the newcomers still bring it.  Introducing a world where “high bloods” and “norms” are struggling to coexist, Alexandra Ivy draws the reader in with both likeable and repulsive characters, a world that is by turns real and paranormally fantastic, and irresistible storytelling.


While Out of Control was released in October of 2014 at an estimated 109 pages, it was just enough to get the readers going.  Born in Blood was the first…

HA Fortman Books ~ Romantic Suspense That Captivates

As many of you know, we lost my Mom in early December. Because of that, I was going to push the release of book two (Tracking The Hunter) back until early January. However, my step Dad approached me and said some things about my writing that brought me to even more tears.

He mentioned how proud he and Mom were, and still are. How amazed that I’d made it to International Bestseller on Amazon with my first book. And several other, personal things. Then he paused, took a deep breath and said, “The day before Mom left us, you called and told her that your second book was ready, right? If it is, do you think you can have them publish it on the 15th of December in honor of her?”

I stopped short. My heart crumbled all over again because, you see, Mom was my best friend. My confidant…

Published: Boroughs Publishing Group

March 3, 3013

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.


They slowly stared her down, gold and green eyes unblinking. Grrr, dragons. Sometimes she could tell they thought they were boss.

Tine suddenly leapt up and licked her from head to toe. Ew. Brand followed suit and licked her too, evidently not to be outdone. Ugh. Now she was wet and sticky all over. Glaring at them, she stripped and dove into the pond. The…

The Rock Star of Dark Fantasy Dark Secrets by Madeline Pryce

Dark Secrets

Book #2 of the Dark Series


We have triumphed!  It seemed like everyone and thing in the world was against me reading this book.  But even with the constant interruptions we persevered, me in not giving up and the author in writing a story so compelling, that even with my atrocious memory I had no problem getting right back into the thick of things.  And the thick of things is normally where I found myself.  Ella and Micah went from one adventure to another.  Talk about intense, you best sit on your hands if you don’t want to bite your nails, and the sexual tension is a five alarm fire with no rescue in sight.  Fans and ice cold drinks are a definite must.

I went back and reread Dark Cravings and Dark Innocence which I highly recommend reading before reading Dark Secrets.  I absolutely enjoyed the experience and was reminded why I fell in love with Madeline Pryce’s writing.  I did wonder how she was going to top Dark Innocence, since that was my all time favorite book ever written.  Yes, that was past tense, because she did it!  I didn’t think it was possible.  I didn’t think she could come close to the emotions she evoked in me with Dark Innocence, but not only did she succeed, she surpassed.  Now here is my dilemma, I wanted to give her six stars of five for Dark Innocence.   How do I rate Dark Secrets?  Seven stars?  We are going to have to change the rating system.

Micah and Ella are once again thrown into turmoil, fighting to keep their family together and safe.  To protect each other and understand the love and mate bond they have for each other.  Is it the bond or is it real?  Would the other be there without the bond?  This is just one of the questions Micah and Ella must answer.  They must deal with growing powers and responsibilities, and of course the ever growing amount of people and things that want either want them dead or want to control them.

I laughed, I cried, I think I cussed a time or two. I know I definitely cheered, I might have swooned, I certainly drooled.  But most of all I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I bow to Madeline for an awesome read and for dethroning Dark Innocence.  I didn’t think it was possible.

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

Dark Innocence

Book #1.5 of the Dark Series

Dark Innocence

Awesome, Spectacular, Tremendous!  This book has totally surpassed my expectations and they were high as I rated Dark Cravings 5 stars.  Dark Innocence was even better.  This book is so well written the author is able to draw you in from the very first page and keeps you turning the page till the last.  I was so engross we could have had an earthquake and I would have just taken my tablet and moved under a doorway and kept on reading.  The interacting between the main character sizzles, but it also makes your heart catch.  Some of the supporting characters bring some very interesting scenes to this book that will make you laugh and stand up and cheer.

Micah has been dethroned and Dante has been crowned king.  He is the ultimate in male heroes.  Just thinking about him makes me sigh and not just from his looks.  The way he treats Hannah is enough to make me weep with jealously.  Then there’s Hannah she’s not the brilliant, insecure, air head from the first book.   Unable to forget one second of the pain and torture she’s endured she’s on a downward spiral of drugs, booze, and meaningless sex.  Dante is the one to give her the desire to find the strength within herself to pull out of it.

All in all I give this book a six because it was beyond amazing.

Dark Cravings

Book #1.0 of the Dark Series


This book was awesome. I just finished it earlier this evening. Wow, talk about smoking. I think the fire alarm went off. I am on pins and needles waiting for Dark Innocence, (Hannah and Dante’s story). The excerpts and summary of Dark Carvings did not prepare me for how blown away I was with this book. It was beyond awesome

Ella Grey a half/vampire and Micah MacGregor her Shadow hunter partner are hit with a lust spell by a Succubus.  These two previously hostile partners spend the next four days having hot, hot sex.  The only problem is this pesky little prophecy about the two of them getting together causing the destruction of all.  Ella is beautiful, tough, yet loyal.  And Micah is hot, shoulders to die for, mysterious, and just as loyal.  The supporting characters are just as loveable, except maybe the bad guys, Micah and Eli’s dad, and the vampire Queen to name a few.  This is a definite must read.

New Release and Book Review

The Lion Kings (Part One)
By Renee George

Released July 8, 2014


I don’t know whether to strangle the author or hug her. On the one hand the story is outstanding. It is superbly written. From the very first page I was hooked. Okay she had me at the second sentence and never let me go. She made me care about the characters. Made me want to know what made them tick. What happened that night six months ago when Madeline met Madame Devine the Carnival psychic? Why did she dream about Adam and Cage before she even met them? How did she know their names? Why did they feel so very familiar? What was this connection between Clary Sage and Madeline? So many questions I want answered. Then to top it off the sex scenes are so hot and intense I had to get a fan out. You have to applaud an author who can do that when there is hardly any actual sex going on. What no real sex you say? How is that possible? Hah! Read the book and find out. The author does it and she does an awesome job of it.

Now where was I? Oh yeah. Great story; well written; awesome characters; and hot, hot, hot, sex; so why do I want to strangle the author? It’s a serial. I know, I was warned. But it was just so good. I hated to see it come to an end. But then again, I hate to see any book I really like come to an end. At least with this one I know there will be book two, three, four, and five. Soon I will get to revisit them all again and knowing me I will reread this book before I read book two. Okay I guess she gets a hug.  


A definite 5 star read. I will be getting book two as soon as it is available. Oh yeah, Big Hugs to Renee George for a great book!

Warning: There is a cliffhanger, because it’s a serial. One you are really going to want to read. If you are totally against serials I suggest you wait until the whole series is out and get it then, because from what I have read so far it will be worth it, but don’t worry. You can always check back when the last book comes out, and check the reviews then. I’m sure you will be hearing the same thing. Buy the book. I haven’t read one of Renee’s books that I wouldn’t recommend to a friend.

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