Review of Cameron's Quest by Loraine Nelson

Cameron's Quest ( Thunder Creek Ranch)

Cameron as a young man fell in love. Lacey and Cam even though they were together for a short time, fell hard for one another. When Lacey's Uncle dies and the family has to leave there vacation spot in London, they leave without ever getting contact info to Cam. Cam is devastated and never forgets his sweet Lacey. Years, over 20, go by and he always wondered what happened to his Irish beauty. So armed with the only info he has ever had, she is Irish and her last name, Cam starts the search. Town to town, he goes. Finally he comes across a small cafe'. He sees a young woman that looks like the spiting image of his Lacey. He has found his woman but also much more than he could have ever imagined. Lacey had given birth to triplet girls,  about 22 years of ago. Lacey and Cam with their short time together have 3 beautiful Irish red head girls. Cam thrilled, but sad about how much he has missed, just wants to reconnect with Lacey. But not until Cam sends the 4 girls open ended tickets to come visit him on the Ranch, does Lacey's true feeling come to the light. But when a mysterious murder, happens on their doorstep, will it ruin the start of what Cam and Lacey have just start to build back?

The Thunder Creek Ranch series is a series that has a great love story, danger and even some laughs. The love story is usually between 2 characters with some kind of issue, major or minor. Cam and Lacey were 2 young adults who fell in love and  had found and lost one another before Lacey could find out she had been pregnant. You know Cam would have been there if he had known any of it. The Manning's (Cam's family) would be one that you would be proud to be a part of. As you read the story you not only fall in love with the people but the scenery and the potential stories you know will come. These books you should read in order due to the stories do inter weave. Adult content. Love this series and highly recommend.

Review of Son of our Blood by Kathi S Barton‏

 Son of Our Blood
This book starts with Mac MacManus dreaming he is a vampire killing the girl he is drinking from.  Mac is actually a vampire but he has never taken blood from a person much less killed them doing it and he has been having the dream for years but always with different girls and all have turned out to be real.  He also is not happy being a vampire and would rather end his life.  He is offered a deal that if he will help track down the killer he sees in his dreams then he will be allowed to meet the sun, like anything is ever that simple!

I did really enjoy this book it was well thought out with the two plots combining nicely and it had a really nice light touch, the characters we met were great and quite amusing. The problem for me is that this is book 12 in the series and I kept feeling that there were inside jokes that I wasn't getting and there was a massive cast of characters that was hard to keep track of for a newbie.  However it was one of those books that makes you want to go out and find book 1 and start from the beginning rather than never touch another in the series.  If you HAVE read any of the others then I sure you would find this a total delight and this is certainly an author that will be going on my wish list!

I'm giving this 4 out of 5 stars just because I'm missing too much knowledge from previous books to know if it really qualifies as awesome!

Review of Her Warrior's Three Wishes by Carrie Ann Ryan

Her Warrior's Three Wishes (Book 2 of  Dante's Circle)

When lightening struck the bar where Jamie and her friends frequented, she never new how much life would change.

Humans have diluted the gene pool and all the different races have interbred, until humans have forgotten most of these races ever even existed. So when the lightening struck the bar, something magical happened and awakens DNA in the women that were at the bar. Jamie's best friend had brownie DNA and is now a brownie. When she had found her true love Dante, it awoken what ever was inside her. Now Jamie has met Ambrose, Dantes' best friend and fellow angle. She feels the connection between them and knows that something major is about to change and it is out of her control.

Ambrose, had a life. He had a wife he loved and children.  Now thousands of years old and his family killed long ago, he comes across a human named Jamie. He knows she is his, the one he is destined for. But with conflicted emotions, he leaves for a while, with "Angel business". He doesn't understand that Jamie suffers from his absence and changes are happening in the world where both will have to rely on one another. A Evil is about to attack and comes from Ambrose's past. The only problem is something is still missing. A connection that has to be found.

Balin Drake's days are numbered. He is at the end of his time and his father can't wait. Unable to kill him because of demon law, Balin has been a disgrace to demon kind. So while waiting for his son to die, the demon goes on as planed..destroy Ambrose. Kidnapping Jamie, he knows it will bring the Angel to him. Balin has done what most demons can't, he has never taken a soul. This is good for his soul but is ending his life. Unless he finds his life mate, he is about to die.

This is a series you can really sink your teeth into. A story that weaves through until the 3 finally find each other. Then the chemistry becomes scorching. I recommend that you read book 1 before book 2. It will make more sense if you know the history. You also learn a little about Ambrose and Jamie in book 1. I can honestly say Balin is one of my favorite characters. All are willing to fight for what they believe in but Balin was so close to death that I think he truly embraces his life with the 2. Also finding his mates just confirms his decision to not take souls was the right decision. Makes him value his decision even more. I also loved that Jamie is a kick butt warrior herself, soft and loving but can kick butt like her men! Awesome read, can't wait till the next one comes out. Very good series and author.  I highly recommend! ADULT CONTENT M/M/F menage  Thanks for the great read Carrie!

Blurb:
Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Ambrose Griffin is older than most, if not all, civilizations. As each year passes, he submerses himself into his training, only relaxing around his protégée and friend, Shade. After losing his wife and children in the last Angelic Wars, he guards his heart and has no desire to share it with another.
Bookkeeper and romance novel enthusiast, Jamie Bennett dreams of being swept off her feet by a white knight. However, her life is no romance book. Since meeting Ambrose—a sexy, delicious angel—she’s been twisted inside out and doesn’t know why. Things are happening that she can’t control and now her life is in danger.
Balin Drake is stuck in hell, literally. His life of refusing to take souls, even though it’s part of his demon nature, has caught up with him. He’s dying and now must search for his true half, but even a mating may not save him. When he meets the two people who could fill that part, he’ll need to fight for something he hasn’t felt in over a century—hope.
Warning: Contains a rigid angel who needs a certain sexy woman to help him unwind, a book keeper who finds herself the creamy center of the best cookie ever, and a demon who has a certain taste for pressing them both against walls.

Review of Bloodweight by Eva LeNoir

Bloodweight
Underdogs of the Arena series
by
Eva LeNoir

As a young independent vampire, Ellen Banks takes the ring, and all eyes are on her. The lithe rebel has worked hard to get to this one moment in her less-than-stellar life. No one will stand in her way of that championship belt, especially not the powerful and impossibly salacious Nash Stanford. If only her traitorous body’s reaction would shut the hell up.

Nash Stanford, Vampire Sire of the East Coast, has been biding his time. He is a shrewd businessman and knows a good investment when he sees one. But when he looks at the incredibly sexy Ellen Banks, there is more than just money on his mind. Will she agree to work for him? More importantly, will she finally give into the hunger building between them?

This is a really fast paced read.  I usually don't read vampire books, but I enjoyed this one a lot.  The plot was fast paced & kept your attention til the very end.  The characters were likable even though they were vampires..& I couldn't wait to see how it all played out. This is the first book I've read by this author & it was well worth reading.  
I rate this book 4 stars

The lynx are the scourge of the earth weres with no principles.  As her days of freedom come to an end she trys going into a sort of witness protection, when her would be saviors are put down she runs to save herself from the worst possible fate there ever was. 

Bo was injured at age 14 and his leg never healed properly.  The everyday pain is almost more then he can take.  He doesn't want a truemate as he thinks he can never protect her and then there is the scars on his leg, the endless days and nights of never ending pain.   When he saves a wolve from 3 lynxes he finds his truemate.  He will get rid of them then set her free of him.  Not happening,  Reika has other ideas and as a healer she will heal him in mind and body or die trying. 



This story was so out there.  The beginning starts off gripping and then never stops.   I really enjoyed this story.  I read it back to back!  When I read a book I like to think hmm how would I have written it just a little bit different , well not so with this book.  It was right on with enough of everything and more of on edge, page turning,  that I read it in one sitting and then again!  I have a few in this series as my favorite books and this is one of them.

Mark and Nathan made the list for the next Corporate get away. The both have heard about this get away and not good things.  Mark and Nathan have a very bad feeling  not just from the long bus ride but upon reaching their destination.  An old home that had seen much better days.  An old home that held many secrets and did not want to give them away. The boss Jason has hand picked this batch for reason of his own.  Now Mark and Nathan see that things do go bump in the night and in the day!

Masterfully Written! Edge of my seat page turning leave the lights on in every room.  I can not say to much as I so don't want to give anything away.  Ya that good and more. Creepy yet not gory.  This is not a horror novel as it is a jump as you very carefully turn the pages!
I did leave my bedroom lights on after reading this book and yet I am drawn to wanting to reread it already!

I highly recommend this book!!

Review of San Antonio Desire by Suzzana C Ryan

San Antonio Desire
by Suzzana C. Ryan



   Cody Flannigan wanted no part of moving to Texas with her mom.  But her mother insisted that she
at least give it a chance and if she didn't like it after 6 months then she could move back to New York. 
And no sooner did she arrive at her uncles in Texas, did she have the pleasure of meeting Chase Martin, 
the town vet.  And she thinks that he just might be a good enough reason to stay in Texas.
   Chase can't believe that his friend, Max, is trying to fix him up with his niece.  Max thinks that the 
two young people would make a good match.  And he can see that he is right at their first meeting.  
Chase is at a loss for words when he meets Cody.  She is so beautiful.  He knows instantly that he 
wants to make her his, forever.

Review:  What a great read this was.  The story of Chase and Cody was sweet at times and sexy at 
others.  Cody's uncle Max and his partner, Phil, bring humor to the story.  The author did a good job 
of keeping me interested in the story throughout and gave me plenty of sexy scenes.  An easy, sexy 
read.

Excerpt with R.E. Butler

Excerpt:

A Twitch of Tail (Wiccan-Were-Bear #6)

Natural witch Wysteria has a great life: a job she loves at the new were-animal hospital and a place in the wiccan coven that resides in Cleveland. But all is not right in her idyllic life, as dreams of two mystery lovers plague her nightly. When she arrives at the were-tiger king’s home to heal a young tiger, she comes face to face with the two males from her dreams.
Were-tiger brothers Melo and Tahlon have spent the last three years in different ambushes. Now that Tahlon is coming to join Melo’s ambush, they both begin to grow unsettled. It’s not until they follow a sweet scent into the tiger king’s home that they realize the unsettled feelings are because they’ve found their mate. But Melo and Tahlon’s past comes back in force and it’s not just Tera’s life that hangs in the balance.
Be prepared for plenty of growls, love bites, hot were-tiger loving, and m/f/m interaction. This novella contains scorching hot sex, two possessive were-tigers, and the witch who loves them both.
*Excerpt*
“She’ll be okay?” Tahlon was finally able to relax enough to speak. None of the tigers were trying to take Tera out of his arms.
“She should be. She has a car out front. You could drive it to your house since you guys ran in your shifts here,” Mari said, picking up a satchel from the island.
Midas cleared his throat in a way that sounded like an order, and the tigers left the kitchen quickly. “I am cautioning you that when she awakens, if she wants to be taken home and you refuse, I will beat you within an inch of your lives. She is no prisoner, and if she doesn’t want to be your shared mate, then you will respect her. Our alliance with the Wiccan coven is important for everyone here.”
Melo nodded, and Tahlon ground his teeth together to stop from snarling his outrage. Midas could try to take Tera from them, but it would be the last thing the king ever did. Tera was their mate, and there was no way in hell they were going to let her go. If she was frightened of their connection or needed time to adjust, then they would give that to her, but they wouldn’t leave her side.
She was their mate and the center of their universe now. If she wanted to leave, they’d just have to convince her that being their mate was the best thing that ever happened to her, because it sure as hell was the best thing that had ever happened to him.

This fantasy follows the life of a young woman that was kidnapped by aliens, the Daevas, when she was 16. Now a few years later she finds herself befriended by some of them. Unfortunately, not all Daevas are equal and choices must be made and not all answers are what you would expect.

Overall the story was good. May be overwritten for young readers.

Blurb:
Bloodweight --As a young independent vampire, Ellen Banks takes the ring, and all eyes are on her. The lithe rebel has worked hard to get to this one moment in her less-than-stellar life. No one will stand in her way of that championship belt, especially not the powerful and impossibly salacious Nash Stanford. If only her traitorous body’s reaction would shut the hell up. Nash Stanford, Vampire Sire of the East Coast, has been biding his time. He is a shrewd businessman and knows a good investment when he sees one. But when he looks at the incredibly sexy Ellen Banks, there is more than just money on his mind. Will she agree to work for him? More importantly, will she finally give into the hunger building between them?



Message from  Nash Stanford.Character Post

Good evening ladies and gents. My beloved mate, Ellen, was to be the guest tonight but after careful consideration I, well we, decided that her…colorful language may not be appropriate. I do hope you won’t mind my intrusion. Let’s see, where to begin. Ah, yes, Ellen Banks.
The first time I met the little firecracker, she was standing on the other side of my office desk with her proud chin lifted and her captivating green eyes boring holes onto me. To say she hated me would be an understatement. Yet, the unmistakable scent of her arousal was always lingering when we found
ourselves in the same room. Remember, there is a fine line between love and hate, Ellen was walking that line with the risk of falling into the void.
Now, kitten, don’t look at me like that. You know it’s true.
Now, where was I? Oh, yes. Freefalling. I am the owner of an underground kickboxing arena and, you see, making money from bets is my business. I know a rising star when I see one and Ellen was it. That rare pearl that had been prisoner of her own oyster. I wanted her to sign on with us. I wanted to be the one to own her in that ring. I wanted to make a fortune as she rose to the top.
Stop snorting, love, it’s unbecoming. And keep your punching for the ring. I am not your personal bag.
Of course, you see, Ellen being the independent, fiery female she is, refused to sign any type of contract. She refused to be owned. And still to this day, she is a…how could we call you, kitten? A free lancer? A stubborn, freelancer. Yes, I like that.
What happened after her victory still has my blood boiling so, I’ll let you read the story rather than tell you.
Ladies, gents, always a pleasure. Enjoy the rest of your night.
Come, my love, I believe we have business to attend to. I knew you would not be able to stay quiet while I spoke. I win. Time for you to pay up.

AUTHOR - KATHY BRANDT
STARS - 5
REVIEWER - WENDE SHEETS

Michael Duvall was an avid scuba diver. Loved the water, loved the sea life and wanted it protected. While working on his dissertation on the British Virgin Islands, he becomes trapped under sea and drowns. George Duvall, Denver Police Commissioner, was not going to accept that Michael's drowning was an accident. George is convinced that Michael was killed but who and why ??

Hannah Sampson, a Denver Homicide Detective, is being hired by George to find the missing puzzle to Michael's death. Hannah has the experience and know how to get the job done. Hannah and Michael had one thing in common - scuba diving. Hannah is also head of the Denver underwater recovery team. She has the experience and know how ! 

Hannah hadn't even unpacked her bags before a blue Honda tries to run her down. Every step Hannah takes on this beautiful island the more clues she finds. Michael was found trapped under the wreckage of a Russian Refrigeration Ship. When Hannah goes down for a view of the science she encounters more than she hoping for.

What a great read ! Murder, love and suspense all under one title.  Just when I thought I had it figured out the author added another exciting twist. There was many times while reading this I dreamed of sitting on a beach ! I loved the vivid descriptions of the under water life, so colorful. I even learned some really neat facts about coral reefs.
Very good read and I will be reading book 2 !

Review of Linus & The Angel By R.E Butler

Linus & The Angel (Wolf's Mate #2) by R.E. Butler

Karly is an Angel, a supernaturally perfect mate for one special werewolf.   No mate in her home pack. So with her parents blessing she sets out to find her mate in any of packs that she has marked on her map.  15 mnths later she wonders if he even exist.  She is almost ready to give up, but life has other things in mind for Karly.   Linus finds her nearly frozen to death out in a snow storm.   He is 4th in the pack hierarchy and already been married once with dis-torus results.  He doesn't want another human, chew toy or bunny.   Karly and Linus both have a past that will throw curve balls their way. Only if they are meant to be will they survive the past ghost.

I really enjoyed learning about Karly and her Angel Status that was very interesting and fun. 
Watching Linus come to terms with his past and his future with help from his pack and Karly was interesting.  This couple has past that we as humans have so watching these characters deal with what so many of us deal with was right on track.
I look forward to more of this Author and this series.

Review of the Coming Storm by Valerie Douglas



The Coming Storm (The Coming Storm #1) by Valerie Douglas


Elon is an Elf and Adviser to the High King.  He helped Men and Dwarves to work together even on the now shaky ground, as things are happening that are very dark.  He has a small close group of friends made up of Colath an Elf, Jalila also an Elf, and Jareth a Wizard.  Each of them has an important part to play in helping Elon find what this dark is.  Animals that are not supposed to be in the lands are coming in and some are even working together.  This is the first that will alert many that Darkness is coming.  Elon and his small group must fight off the beast and go to each Kingdom to alert the Kings also to see if they have had any problems with these beast.   At one such kingdom Riverford, things are not as they seem, The King is acting strange, and the new adviser is strange. The Princess of Riverford  is having problems of her own.  Ailith has been trained in all aspects to run her Kingdom, yet with the new adviser and her Father and Mother acting strange she must tread carefully.  When Elon and his group of friends leave, she over hears her father and his adviser talking about sending beast to kill this small group.  With thoughts of only to save them she risk her very life to warn them.  This starts a life time of friendship.  Soon Ailith becomes part of this group now known as The 5.   It is up to them to rally support, to help their fellow man.  Not always knowing who to trust leads them into some very tricky spots.


I SO LOVED THIS BOOK!!  If I could give it a Ten I would!  This book reminds me of Lord of The Rings , but so much better!! This book would make an awesome movie that would rival the other and I am sure leave it in the dust.  You have Elf, Dwarves,Wizards, Dark Magic, White Magic Friendship that is tested and made even stronger.  Fight scenes that I read twice just because they were so well written!  Romance written so beautifully it leaves you with tears in your eyes.  Every part of this book goes into such detail that you are drawn right into each scene and picturing every detail! I can not wait to read Book 2 in this series.  I cried at the end well last few chapters really, my heart stings were pulled for all of them. I put this book down and was so sorry to do that. I had to reread it I had no choice!

I Highly Recommend this book to everyone  it has everything any reader could ever want!

A guardian Ky discovers is all too real, and closer than he expects. What's a man supposed to do when he meets a three-thousand-year-old mummy who's as lovely as she is lethal?

There's also only one ally to whom he can turn. Kyriay, Queen of the Fairy.
It's not enough, though, to rescue them. Oryan must be restored to his throne. The usurper Haerold has little love for his people, and even less for Fairy.
