What Lies Within Us by Kiki Howell & Gina Kincade
Kyna Hughes travels to Ireland only to find out her whole life has been a series of well-orchestrated lies. Thrust into days of dark magic, secret societies, mystical hauntings, and ultimately, kidnappings and satanic weddings, she struggles not to lose her heart to one of two men—a hunky former Navy SEAL hired to protect her, and a sinister Wizard hired to train her to develop her hidden powers.
Dating 911 by Kathleen Grieve
Commiserating with girlfriends over butterscotch martinis, emergency room nurse, Roxanne Carter creates the idea of The Dating Manifesto—a not so scientific research project which promises to point the way to dating success. She wades through a series of unsavory, stale dates while gathering data to find the potentially most suitable single men available, literally putting her back at ground zero.
Just when she is ready to give up on dating, in walks sin personified in the form of a sexy firefighter, tainting all of her previous data.
A traumatic warehouse fire leaves firefighter Jett Avery’s closest friend dead. The false mask of charm and pretense is slipping as Jett tries to repress his turbulent emotions, remorse, and guilt. After months of anguish, the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder seems to be taking over his life and he needs an outlet, fast. In an attempt to combat the worst of his depression, he decides to use his brand of therapy—Sex. The remedy, usually a quick pick me up for Jett, has lost its luster. He is almost ready to give up until he encounters a wicked seductress who ignites a fire he’s not ready to put out any time soon. The bonus? She’s an ER nurse with just the right kind of healing, the missing element Jett’s search had not yet uncovered. He finally feels alive when he’s in her presence.
Jett’s twin brother, emergency room Doctor Cruz Avery, the playboy of the ER, decides Roxanne is the woman for him. He places all brotherly affection aside and is in hot pursuit, complicating an already tricky situation.
Roxanne finds herself battling a growing competition between brothers for her affection. She discovers she’s drawn to both men, making it difficult not to compare them, and finds herself with an important choice to make. Jett hounds her during every date, and the irresistible hunk generates an indomitable need to play with fire. Yet, there are qualities in Cruz that slide right into the appropriate dating criteria of her Manifesto.
Does she choose the brother who by analysis is the perfect match? Or the one she can’t resist?
Torch Song by Lashell Collins
Dominic Draco has no illusions about who he is. As alpha of the dragon clan, he is also the leader of the shifter Alliance, and that sometimes requires him to be ruthless. He’s a dangerous man to know. In fact, he’s a heartless bastard. That’s the real reason he’s kept the beautiful Lucinda Lindley at bay for so many years, despite the longing he feels for the sexy human singer. But in granting an old friend’s dying request, watching over Lucinda is now his responsibility. Can he keep her safe from the perils of his cut-throat world when the Alliance’s enemies begin to circle? Or will Lucinda become a casualty of the shifter faction war?
Ethereal Witness by Angelica Dawson
Magic just became real for Paige Brown. Since she helped her roommate cast a spell, she has wanted to explore her new-found talent. Flashbacks to her ancestor give her clues, specifically to a love spell that she hopes will snag the professor she has been fantasizing about. Both Paige and her previous incarnation, Jane, find that controlling magic is more than a simple recipe. Will Paige be able to break her own spell? Will she discover the love that is closer than she knows?
Love Story of a Reaper by Elvira Bathory
What would you do if you found out that you weren’t like everyone else?
That you were special, but only in a way no one could find out about?
What lengths would you go to prove yourself to your family? A family that you didn’t know you had?
Morrigana was moving through life with a part-time, minimum wage job, and only a handful of friends. She was different from other people and they treated her that way. However, she was happy with her life until the day she met Kheelan; that is when her life was turned upside down. She finds out that she isn’t even human, and that a family she wasn’t aware she had needed her to complete a mission. As Morrigana and Kheelan’s adventure progresses, will their focus on business remain professional or will their growing passion take over?
Burning Midnight by Erzabet Bishop
A triumvirate of blood and fire…
Diana Robichard runs Moon Called, an antique shop specializing in cursed objects. A new antiquity falls into her possession and promptly disappears, her tidy world is upended. When faced with a threat to those she loves the most, witchcraft alone may not be enough to save them.
Alpha Aristide Benoit is a wolf on a mission. When multiple pack members and finally his daughter go missing, he is ready to do whatever is necessary to find them as well as save the woman who has claimed his heart.
Vampire Regent, Rand Sinclair has a problem. His vault is missing an amulet never meant to see the light of day. Endangering a treaty with the wolves, he must act quickly before the woman he loves is swept into an ancient curse that will destroy them all.
With This Heart by Red L. Jameson
Talk about a killer kiss…
Being a former soldier with PTSD takes its toll on Aaron and has wiped him clean of optimism along with having dreams. But he’s no longer sure if he’s living in reality or fantasy after he tries to save a friend and finds his world filled with women who have wings and…Valkyries.
Adala kills. Not on purpose. She’s a Valkyrie—from just one touch, she takes warriors to the afterlife. Oh, but she’d give anything for a break, for normalcy, to have one day of not wearing her legionnaire uniform. When she’s asked to talk to the human Aaron to help him understand just what he’s in for when he tripped into her world, she jumps at the chance, even though she knows Aaron more than she cares to admit, even though she has an insane crush on him, even though she can’t touch him at all. But she gets to wear jeans and talk to a man—a real-life, hero of a man.
From her adorable made-up swearwords to when she wears his clothes, from the fact that she’s hundreds of years old to her pet Pegasus, Aaron falls hard for the shy Valkyrie. Dare he risk his life for a kiss? He’s thinking about it, because already he’s given her his heart.
With This Heart is a standalone story, that’s part of the With These Wings Series—books that mix rock-hard military men with feathered-fantasy femme fatales for a sizzling hot adventure to find love. Join Chanticleer winner, Red L. Jameson, for more of this heart-tugging fairy tale series.
Saltwater Siren by Muffy Wilson
Was it love at first sight? Perhaps. Many thought it might have been the work of the unscrupulous Sea Witch, Hermione, long a bitter and banished King’s Court Matron. So, was it the crafty wiles of Hermione, scheming to seek her sordid revenge, or was it a simple matter of serendipity? All we know for certain is that two young royals, one landed and one not, met during a raging storm as fierce and intense as the love they would none too soon escape. Was it fate, design, or—perhaps—black magic? Who’s to say?
What we do know is that it was sensuous, erotic, and insatiable as they fought to extinguish the passions that flamed their heat by indulging in every desire that swept them into one another’s arms. Their shared carnal voracity fanned an appetite no amount of indulgence could satisfy.
After all, it happened…Once upon a time…
Dangerous Beauty, Sexy Beast by Dariel Raye
Drayden saved her life— but her incessant need for vengeance could mean the end of his.
Thirteen years after the brutal murder of Treva Evers’ entire family, a cloaked stranger shows up just in time to save her from the same fate. When he disappears as quickly as he appeared, she is drawn into an underworld replete with magic and long forgotten customs, a place where nothing is as it seems, including her mysterious savior, and every word or action could result in brutal consequences.
Rose Tears by Amanda Pillar
Death is coming for Lori Hardcastle.
Half-Succubus, half-Sídhe, Lori has been on the run since she was seventeen. Worried that her vengeful family will find her, she’s been hiding in the Borderlands, a magical plane nestled between the fae and human worlds. However, when her path crosses that of a dangerously sexy fullblooded fae, will she be able to survive the encounter?
Conrad Death is a cleaner (he doesn’t like the term ‘assassin’) for the fae White Queen. His latest mission: find the half-breed daughter of the Count of Tears. Easy. Except no one knows what she looks like, her real age, or even what name she uses. However, Conrad isn’t daunted by simple details – he’s finished every job he’s ever started. But when he meets a smoking hot Succubus in a Borderlands bar, his life is thrown into turmoil.

Rogue by Savannah Verte
Everyday immortal Bree Brigand gets a rude awakening as her family is slaughtered. Not only is the cursed, suicide blade of legend and lore real, but it has chosen her. She must quickly learn to fast-track a course she’s never navigated, in a world she thought only existed in campfire stories. But, only after coming to terms with the facts…her family is not her family.
Truths and lies collide in a world where the hunters and the hunted trade places faster than she can discern who is which, and everyone is an assassin. Can she find and claim her destiny? Or, will being marked by a male who is not her one true mate ruin everything, and clip this dragon’s wings before she can become all she is meant to be?
Hexing Hearts by Alyssa Drake
At eighteen, undeveloped witch, Remy Vasile abandoned her island home without a backward glance. Five years later, circumstances outside of Remy’s control have drawn her back to Firefly Island, dredging up painful memories which lay dormant during her absence.
Sebastian Ayres enjoyed a life of pleasure pursuits. However, his blasé attitude evaporates the moment Remy’s hand brushes against his. Irresistibly drawn to his mate, Sebastian must undertake the daunting task of persuading Remy that he is not just any man, but the only man, for her.
Unbeknownst to either, dark secrets, hidden since Remy’s birth, are about to be uncovered and Remy will be confronted with a life-altering decision. With the help of her sister and some unexpected allies, Remy must decide if she will fight and risk her heart or continue running from her destiny.
Dragons Curvy Concierge by Mychal Daniels
When Bronwyn Scott finds herself way over her head as the first-time business owner of a personal concierge service, she’s not about to fall for a rich mystery man trying to test her professionalism at every turn.
Determined to make her business a great success to find and show the mother who left her at birth that she made something of herself, Bronwyn has no time for games or entitled, gorgeous rich dudes.
MacMillan “Mac” Kelnar is at that time in his life where his business can run itself, he’s successful, powerful, and a mature Dragon who’s paid his dues.
When he sees his mate across the parking lot of a Home Improvement Center parking lot as she suffers a hit and run, he’ll stop at nothing to have her, even if that means pretending to hire her as his personal concierge.
Determined to have his mate, this Dragon won’t stop at nothing until his mate realizes that the only services he’s interested in are having all of her.
Credence – Moon Dragons by Decadent Kane
Torren is days away from competing in the Draconic Challenge and earning the prize he needs to complete his magic credence. His sky-high dream of apprenticing with the Ancients is finally in sight. The last thing this solitary moon dragon needs is a mate dragging him down to earth, and a human one at that. Not that his body will listen.
Dovie is minding her own business—literally—when a handsome stranger walks into her bookstore. One spontaneous orgasm later, she’s left with no choice but to close up shop. The last thing she needs is an overbearing dragon dragging her to his mountain and telling her to shelve her dreams in favor of a stupid contest. Not that her body will listen.
Torren and Dovie must fight their treacherous attraction to each other or sacrifice their ambitions forever. But moon dragon magic doesn’t choose lightly, and when darker forces shatter the peaceful mountain enclave the dragons call home, human and moon dragon alike will have to reconsider just what they need to achieve a happy ending.
Kiss of the Fallen by Kharma Kelley

Dear Readers,
I just wanted to be left alone. I wanted nothing to do with the war brewing among all the Supernaturals and have grown tired of fighting all these centuries. All of us are screwed up anyway; but who am I to judge who drinks blood and who eats souls?
   
As luck (or lack thereof) would have it, I get sucked into one last mission with the vampires and the next thing I know, I find a half-naked demon chained to my bed; and let’s just say she is not happy.  And, as much as I enjoy seeing a beautiful woman grace my bed, unfortunately, I’m not happy either.
   
Of all demons, someone delivers to me a Black Blood Slayer; demons bred to do one thing and one thing only: kill vampires.  Her blood is spiked with a desire I long to tame, but if I do, I could be six-feet under… again. And this time forever.  But her fighter’s spirit and tenderness shakes me to my missing soul, wanting to claim her with a need I cannot name.  But with both of us on the run and my people gunning for us, how can I be sure she wants me to love or to kill?
   
-Commander Tristan Castillion, Vampire Royal Guard
Selene by Shelique Lize
My name is Selene and I am a moon goddess. Between my siblings and me, we control the balance of the universe. Without us, the mortal and immortal realms would be thrust into eternal chaos. Don’t ask me what that means. It’s what I’ve been told for as long I can remember. I have never questioned my existence because it was the only life I have ever known. Then one day, everything changed when I became enthralled with the earth.
I couldn’t resist the alluring beauty that beckoned me almost every single night. My curiosity was so fierce and dominate, it was becoming impossible to ignore it and I gave in. I found the only god brave enough to take me to the mortal realm but he wanted something in return. He wanted my body, and I gave it to.
I went to earth and experienced life like never before. It was like my eyes were opening and I started to question my entire existence. Feelings all of a sudden are very present and then everything changed again, when I fell in love with a human.
Being a goddess has never been so complicated.
One Last Lullaby by Kallysten
When Kirsten walks back into Jacob’s life after years of estrangement, it’s not to resume the relationship she once ended abruptly. Instead, she’s there to work as a mage for the same agency in which Jacob is a Special Enforcer… or at least, that’s her story and she’s sticking to it. Whether Andrew, her boss and one of Jacob’s fathers, hired her for her skills or to get her back in Jacob’s life is anyone’s guess.
Although Jacob is determined to see in Kirsten a co-worker and friend, he still loves her as much as he ever did. He used to believe she was ‘the one,’ and even years after she broke up with him he still doesn’t understand what happened. It doesn’t help that every little thing she does reminds him of what they once shared.
As the agency battles deadly demons night after night, the relationship between Jacob and Kirsten goes from awkward to downright painful… until one botched magic spell traps them in a strange world inhabited by the demons, and the only way back will require them to reveal to each other their most painful secret…
Lust by Liz Gavin
Magical, sinful New Orleans attracts many lost souls who find haven at kinky Club Desire. Marcel Revault is the real deal: bound to the house, haunting it for over 150 years. Clara Hervaux, movie-star extraordinaire, indulges in her dark side as a club regular. As an empath, she’s gotten hooked on Marcel’s otherworldly sexiness. When Clara goes missing, Marcel uses their empathic link to find her, but can he break the curse to save her? Or will Clara fall prey to the jealous witch who cursed him?
Witch Playground by Isis Pierce
When Samantha Smith agreed to cast a spell to sneak her friend Sassy into the hottest paranormals’ club in Vegas, she never thought she’d actually get caught. Now she’s facing a trial and the possibility of losing everything—including her magic, and maybe even her life. To get out of legal trouble, she might have to sleep with a vampire or go to hell with a bounty hunter. Maybe both. And that’s a whole new kind of trouble.
Frozen Soul by Catherine Banks
A wolf’s love is forever…and so is the bond of the pack.
Even after she broke it off with their Alpha, Tysen, the pack still loved Jess. So when they discover her current boyfriend, Jon, is literally draining her soul, her wolf family is right there to come to her rescue. Back amongst their ranks, the bond she shares with them, and Tysen, grows stronger than ever, and she can’t deny how desperately she’s missed them all.
But now the truth of Jess and Jon’s relationship comes blasting through the door and brings everyone to their knees; she’s sacrificed more for the pack than any of them realized.
The question now remains: is there a way for Tysen to save her soul?
Taste Of Darkness by Catherine Vale
Natalya should have known better than to watch the handsome fisherman from the shadows, but she found herself drawn to him, night after night. If she had only stayed away from him, he would not be facing the darkness that will now haunt him for eternity. But she couldn’t stay away, and now it’s too late; he’s been turned into an abomination, a creature that will never again be free.
Natalya is all that Caine has left. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Natalya knows better than anyone what it’s like to have her world ripped out from under her, forced into the darkness, never to walk in the sun again. It wasn’t long ago when she was turned into a blood-sucking vamp, a ruthless killer. So when she finds herself to blame for an innocent human being turned, she knows that it’s up to her to save his life. But when Caine awakens to discover what he has become, will he ever be able to find his place in a world, where he just doesn’t fit in? And can he learn to forgive Natalya long enough to fight alongside her?
When a merciless pack of werewolves scent the newly created vamp, they will stop at nothing to destroy him, and everything he loves. Caine must learn to embrace his darkness, if he wishes to survive.

⛱___ Crafty Authors at the Beach ___⛱ with special guest Hildie McQueen

specialguestcmcfeaturedauthorhildiemcqueen

 

Welcome to Books Coffee and Crafts News’ first “Crafty Author’s Coffee Hour”.  This is a new feature that I’m super excited about “Authors that Craft”.  Our On the Beach segment, will be for Coastal Magic Convention 2017 “Featured Authors”.  As one of CMCon17’s “Featured Bloggers” I have the honor of hosting one or more “Featured Author” each month.  I arranged (bribed) to get crafty ones.  😏

Today we’re in  Daytona Beach, Florida at a lovely little coffee shop I’ve conjured in my head.  My guest this afternoon is the lovely, and extremely talented Hildie McQueen.  She is the first CMCon17 “Featured Author” to join me.  I will be hosting a different author each month until the convention in February.    

13173653_1320640787952214_1246154121214230504_n 

For those of you who might not be familiar with the bestselling author. Hildie McQueen loves action, love and unusual settings. Author of western historical, Highland historical and contemporary romance, she writes something every reader can enjoy.

Most days she can be found in her pajamas hiding from delivery men while drinking tea from her David Gandy coffee mug. In the afternoons she browses the Internet for semi-nude men to post on Facebook.

Hildie’s favorite past-times are romance conventions, traveling, shopping and reading.

She resides in beautiful small town Georgia with her super-hero husband Kurt and two unruly Chihuahuas.

She writes paranormal as H.M. McQueen.

Here comes Hildie now.  Looking bright and cheerful, wearing jeans, a loose fitting multicolored top and of course a Kate Spade tote with her planner in hand. Once the hugging and fangirling is over.  Hildie is one of my favorite author type people.  Hildie, sweetheart that she is compliments me on my summer dress, and I ask where she got her adorable blouse, we place our order.  She gets an Earl Grey Latte sweetened with honey.  Then asks for a large cup and offers to split a toasted bagel with me.  I happily accept, and order an Iced Caffè Americano for myself.  Once our drinks arrive we settle in for a cozy little chat.

 

ProfilePicThreeI want to thank you for joining me today, and for being the first “Featured Author” from Coastal Magic, first “Author who Crafts” (Crafty Author), as well as my very first visitor to join me online for a Coffee Time Chat.  Wow!  That’s a lot of firsts.

Speaking of firsts, last February was my first Author/blogger/reader convention.  Coastal Magic Convention 2016.  I’m thankful I choose that convention, because it was so fun and casual.  I had so much fun, I decided before it was over, that I would be returning for the next one.  You couldn’t imagine how thrilled I was when I was chosen as one of the “Featured Bloggers”.  That means not only do I get to do spotlights for you and the other “Featured Authors”.  I get to help out at the convention.  I wish I had heard of CMCon17 sooner.  I could have been going for years.

What about you, Hildie?  How long have you been attending?  What has been one of your favorite experiences at Coastal Magic.


1496913_1263397550343205_2519799645491758359_n I am one of the lucky authors who attended the very first year.  It was called Old City, New Blood then.  Those of us who were there will never forget the parrots in the lobby.  It was a riot, but boy did we have fun!

My favorite event at CMC was that first year, when four of us hosted a Caribbean candy party.  It was a last minute throw together, and an absolute hit!

Every year I enjoy the laid back attitude of the convention, not only that, but who can resist books, fun people and the beach?

Crafty Author’s Coffee Hour

ProfilePicThree
Now for the crafty part of our hour.  Besides the excellent stories you weave, what else do you craft, Hildie?

 

1496913_1263397550343205_2519799645491758359_n

I’ve done some crafting.  Scrapbooking and card making and I’ve dabbled a bit into beading, but that didn’t last.  Little beads were everywhere and I hated stepping on them.  Finally I fell into the whole colorful mesh wreath thing, friends gathered at my house and made them for every season.  I don’t even use them, they were just fun to make.

ProfilePicThree
Wow!  I’ve never tried working with mesh, or making wreaths.  I’ll have to give it a try this fall.  I can see making an purple, orange, green, and black one for Halloween.

I noticed you mentioned papercrafts, but not your decorative planning.  I know that might not be the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions crafts, but I definitely consider it a craft.

1496913_1263397550343205_2519799645491758359_n

I love using paper planners and even make videos for planner people!

 

 

ProfilePicThreeI just recently started decorative planning.  I stumbled upon your video’s while surfing YouTube for “How to planner videos”.   I love your videos.  Not only did I learn a lot about planning, but about yourself as well.

Hildie promised to share a video with us, if I posted a picture of one of my planning pages.  So here’s a picture of one of my weeks.  Not near her level, but I’m a newbie.  I still decorate one week at a time, as I’m still figuring out my style and what works for me.  But I’m thoroughly enjoying it.  The happy side effect of decorative planning…..  I actually write things down a lot more.

You’re in luck.  At your request, I made one just for this event.

Hildie McQueen chats about Coastal Magic while decorating her planner for the week of the event.

ProfilePicThree Oh wow!  That was a wonderful video.  I love how you pull everything together.  So organized, yet pretty and fun.  You’ve given me some great ideas.  I’m going to have to check out some of the Etsy shops you mentioned.

I loved that you planned out the week of Coastal Magic for us.  I guess it might be a good idea to go ahead and do my planning for that week also.  Today has been so much fun and I’m so glad you were my first guest here on Books, Coffee, and Crafts News.  I look forward to seeing you again in Daytona Beach this coming February.  It’s going to be a blast.

Thanks everyone for joining us today.  I hope you enjoyed Hildie’s visit as much as I did.  And I really hope to see you all at Coastal Magic Convention 2017.

Please feel free to comment on this post.  I’d love to know if you are going to be attending #CMCon17 or if you have gone in the past. What you thought of Hildie McQueen’s video and/or decorative planning in general.   Also, what or who you would like to see on here in future.

Be sure to catch us next month for another CMCon17 Featured Author Spotlight.

Charmed Again

Haunted on Bourbon Street:
Jade loves her new apartment—until a ghost joins her in the shower.

Being an empath has never been easy on Jade’s relationships. It’s no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when her ghost moves from harmless spooking to terrorizing her friend Pyper, it’s up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she’ll need her mysterious landlord’s help to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

Witches of Bourbon Street:
Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she’s discovered she has another gift she’d rather not unwrap—magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade’s the only one who can help, she’s forced to embrace her witchy side.

Trouble in Mudbug:
Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law’s death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana.

Unfortunately, death doesn’t slow down Helena one bit.

Mischief in Mudbug:
Sabine LaVeche needs to locate a blood relative fast – her life depends on it. When Helena Henry shows up offering help, Sabine knows she’s really in for trouble when it’s the best idea she’s heard in a while. When private investigator Beau Villeneuve takes on her case, things heat up in more ways than one, but as they begin to uncover the secrets of Sabine’s past, the one thing that becomes clear is that someone doesn’t want Sabine to get the answers she seeks.

Forever Charmed:
When Halloween inherits her great-aunt’s manor, she decides to put the house to good use as a bed-and-breakfast. Her first guest is the sinfully good-looking Nicolas Marcos, but he’s not here for the continental breakfast. Halloween discovers a ratty old book in the attic. It’s written in an unfamiliar language.

Halloween soon learns this is not an ordinary spellbook. The tome brings her a new talent, but her new skills come with a catch. When a rival witch comes after the book, Halloween doesn’t know who to trust–the sexy vampire who says he wants to save the day, or the warlock who says he can destroy the book once and for all.

Charmed Again:
Reluctant witch Halloween LaVeau never guessed that inheriting LaVeau Manor would be so difficult. Sure, she was named Worst Witch of the Year, but her botched spell-casting is all behind her now, right? Everything changed after discovering the ancient Book of Mystics. She’s now the leader of the Underworld… whatever that means. Apparently, she’s in charge of keeping order within the paranormal world.

If that wasn’t enough, Halloween–or Hallie as she prefers to be called–has two gorgeous men making her life even more confusing. The sexy vampire Nicolas Marcos has been accused of stealing another witch’s powers. With the help of Nicolas’ brother, the good-looking warlock Liam Rankin, Hallie must discover if Nicolas is guilty as charged. How will she navigate this Underworld?

Hook Me Up by Adele Downs
4 stars

Delightfully heartwarming contemporary romance with hot firefighters. Yum!

This was my first time reading this author and I look forward to reading more of her books.  This was a smooth read, with interesting characters.  I really enjoy the book.  It was a super fun read.  What better way to meet a sexy fireman, than by hanging upside down practically naked in an apple tree.


Slow Burner – Sam Cheever

4.5 Stars

This was an extremely well crafted story, which I enjoyed tremendously.  I thought I had it figured out who was the villain.  But Miss Cheever is a mastermind and truly had me fooled – sort of.  I loved it.  Can’t wait to read more from this author..


Rescue Me by N.J. Walters

5 Stars

Well written story, with great flow, and excellent characters.  Riveting, and touched me.

Frank the Firefighter and possible Phoenix rescues the love of his life.  The one he left behind at eighteen, because of some very life changing revelations.  Due to those discoveries he ran leaving his family and Martha.  

This story made me smile and the end made me cry lots of happy tears.  If most definitely touched me.  I’ll be looking for more books by this author.

Firebrew by Liz Crowe
5 Stars

Gritty – Intense – But so worth the read!

This is the first time I’ve read this author, so I had no idea what to expect.  There is a warning at the beginning of the book that the author writes dark, gritty romance, which wouldn’t be my first choice.  But I had promised to read and review this book, and I keep my promises.  I could always review the book for writing style, even if I don’t care much for drama.  At first I didn’t care much for George, and I really didn’t like Jane.  But, hey a promise is a promise, so I read on.  Thankfully I did.

Yes it’s gritty, intense, and downright disturbing at times. It’s also extremely well written.  And much to my surprise I quickly found myself pulled into the story.  I couldn’t put it down.  

As the story unfolded, and I got to know the characters, the more they demanded my understanding. I began to root for Jane, and hope she could/would straighten herself out.  There were moments of great laughter, lots of shaking my head at the mess Jane was making of her life, tears, joy, and simple understanding.

This book opened my eyes, made me think, feel a gamut of emotions, and then gave me my must have HEA.

5 Stars hands down.  I will most definitely be looking for more books by this author.
