The second part of the book dragged a bit. I am still invested in the series and am eagerly awaiting the next book.
The Review: Pure Blooded is the fifth installment in Amanda Carlson's Jessica MacClain series. This book continues the ongoing adventures of Jessica MacClain, a female werewolf and her pack. This is by no means your regular werewolf tale (no pun intended!) - Jessica is a special werewolf and in this book we learn more about her abilities.
What makes this series special is the combination of supernatural beings who work together. Jessica's pack includes witches, a vampire, even a reaper. The antagonists are also quite a challenge for Jessica and her friends. I was also very happy to see that Jessica got some time with Rourke, even though it never seems to be enough one on one time.
Pure Blooded is a solid installment in the series. While I enjoyed the book, I felt that while it resolved a big problem for Jessica about halfway through, the second half of the book lagged a little. Despite my small criticism, Pure Blooded was action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat.
I can't wait to read more.
The Jessica MacClain series is best read in order, starting with Full Blooded.

I'd go ahead and give the series a 5 star, just for originality, creativity, fantastic imagery, and for Raffe. He's definitely 5 stars of wonderful. Oh, who am I kidding? Penryn deserves 5 stars, just for her badassery. Thank you Ms. Ee for writing such a strong female lead role.
Enough gushing about the series....Did End of Days deliver? Did it answer all those niggling questions that we were left with at the end of World After? Yes.
We finally learn what those rotten eggs were good for. Well played, Penryn's mom. You rock. (See I started with the little innocuous things so I don't spoil the story). I loved the banter between Raffe and Penryn. It was funny, entertaining, and you could really see how they rely upon each other. Despite all the crazy that Paige endured, she became one of my favorite characters. Leave it to Dee and Dum to produce a talent show in the midst of an apocalypse. And wow....what an epic end to a wonderful series.
Fantastic writing - eloquent and descrptive - epic battle scenes, and a wonderful sense of humor makes this series a must read. Can't wait to read more by this author in the future.

It was just too easy to get rid of Big Bad (and I'll refer to him as such to avoid spoiling). In fact, Big Bad was my absolute favorite - so full of himself and his observations about his situation made me laugh out loud. I did enjoy the featured couple Kamen and Genvieve who made quite the pair. Those two sizzled. For fans of the series - all the Nightwalkers appear in this book as they battle Big Bad, so it's nice to see how these couples are doing.

Bailey is one of NoellBook 6 in Elle Kennedy's Killer Instincts series focuses on Bailey and Sean. We've met these two briefly in the earlier novels. Bailey is one of Noelle's girls, a chameleon and assassin and Sean is a dealer of information. The book starts off running with Bailey infiltrating a bank robbery planned by Sean's contacts over at IRA Dagger. The action continues throughout the book as Sean is forced to work for Rabbit O'Hare. The stakes increase when some jostling for power occurs and Sean is approached by Rabbit's enemy, Flannery.
Wow. This book was action packed. I just could not put it down. Not only do we get to watch our lead couple finally fall in love, we also get a little Liam and Sullivan action as well. There are also updates the reader on the previous couples in the series.
The romance aspect was well done. Sean and Bailey have a history and Sean was a little underhanded in his pursuit of Bailey. Sean pretended to be his twin Oliver and managed to sleep with Bailey. He is torn by that action and has never admitted to Bailey what he had done. Both characters carry emotional baggage from their childhood. They have to work hard on their relationship. The sex scenes were hot.
Midnight Captive was an exciting read, perfect for summer reading. If you are a fan of romantic suspense, check out this series.

Undertow was a fun read about a new kind of alien invader - The Alpha or First Men - or what we would have called mermaids. But these aren't the beautiful women with fish tails. They are strong and fierce warriors. And they are on the shores of Coney Island. Thirty thousand of them.
In an attempt to integrate the Alpha with the human population, the Alphas are invited to attend the local high school, much to the chagrin of the humans. In scenes reminiscent of desegregation, the Alpha are brought to school under guard of the police and National Guard. Things don't go well and the governor of New York rallies the humans against the "Fishes".
Throughout all of this nonsense, 17 year old Lyric Walker prevails. She is assigned to the Alpha Prince Fathom and she teaches him to read. Fathom is quite a scary character and I loved how he just didn't understand some of the books Lyric brought to him. Just his comments about One Fish, Two Fish made me laugh.
Undertow is not your usual mermaid story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

The international settings, the handsome and brawny men, the beautiful women... I can just imagine Jim Morgan's crew - D, Trevor, Ethan, Kane, Luke, swaggering around their safe house (think very large estate). These are ex-military off-the-grid lethal warriors - professionals. And Noelle's crew of female operatives - beautiful, efficient, and deadly. The teams work together when one of Noelle's operatives is held by a Colombian drug lord.
Midnight Rescue takes place in Colombia and Mexico and the teams must work together to break up a human trafficking ring. It's an action-packed, thrill a minute read. Not only will the action keep you on your toes, the romance is swoon-worthy. Kane and Abby are a wonderful couple and while the attraction is immediate, it takes time to develop into a romantic relationship. And whoa, these two have chemistry.
While I loved the lead couple Abby and Kane, Abby struck me as a little too impulsive for a trained assassin.
This is an addictive series. I'm off to read the next book in the series Midnight Alias.

After a promising start and a very intriguing prologue, I found that the beginning of the book was a little slow for me. I figured it may have been a mood thing so I put the book down and tried again later on. I'm glad I went back to this book because it did have its entertaining moments.
The romance aspect was nicely done with our hero and heroine pining for each other but being in denial about their feelings. Leo lives in Florida on a private island in the keys while Olivia is a CIA operative. Their paths have crossed 18 months earlier in Syria and now Olivia recommends Leo and his men for a salvage operation. The romance build up slowly and our couple is rudely interrupted many times.
I enjoyed reading Hell or High Water and I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author in the future.

Initial Thoughts:Shards of Hope is the 14th book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. Each book keeps getting better than its predecessor. This iInitial Thoughts:Shards of Hope is the 14th book in Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. Each book keeps getting better than its predecessor. This is a long book and without spoiling the story too much, it focuses on Psys Aden and Zaira. Ms. Singh's excellent world building and story telling skills make this series a must read for paranormal romance fans.
The Review: If you've kept up with all the action, politics, and intrigue, then you are in for a real treat.
This series has a wonderfully intricate world where humans live in the shadow of the Psy and Changeling races. The Psy are very restrictive, emotionless, logical. Think Vulcans meet the Borg collective, without the pointy ears. The Psy use the Silence protocol to ensure that their race stays in line and the Psy require feedback from the Net. The Changelings are the total opposite of the Psy. They are emotional, live in large family groups or packs, and are very sociable.
Each book focuses on a lead couple and how they fit into the Psy/Changeling world. This book focuses on Arrow Aden Kai and his deeply damaged love interest Zaira Neve. Zaira is so damaged that she is considered dangerous. Their romance is wonderful and I had to chuckle at some of the situations.
Meanwhile, things in the Psy/Changeling world are changing. The politics get more and more convoluted, so if you are geeky like me, you will enjoy that aspect. It's getting interesting and I am curious to see what will come next. I also loved how we get a glimpse of the previous couples and how they are doing as well.
Fans of this series will enjoy the book. I can't wait for more!

It just made my day. Rock Hard is the story of a rather large T-rex and his lovable mouse that roared. No, really. OK, T-rex is Charlotte's (Charlie's) pet name for Gabriel Bishop, the big brawny ex-rugby player and very successful businessman. Charlotte is the mouse - shy, reserved, skittish - however, she does stand up to her very demanding boss. This was a lot of fun to read and the sexual tension buildup was delicious. Now I want a Gabriel of my own!
Favorite line: "Filthy rich, remember?" His lips brushed her ear. "Emphasis on the filthy when it comes to you, Ms. Baird."

At first this felt like some of the other Lindsay McKenna books I've read lately, but as I read on it began to grow on me. Most of the book focuses on the two main characters Leah and Kell. On a routine mission in Afghanistan, Leah's helicopter is shot down. She is the only survivor and is rescued by Kell. Kell takes her to his cave (yes, cave!) and nurses her to health. They are in constant danger of being found by the Taliban.
This was a fun book to read. A little intense in the romance - actually a bit Stockholm Syndrome for me in a way because of the circumstances. Leah's damaged goods because of a previous sham of a marriage. She is skittish around men but finds herself attracted to Kell. Kell realizes that Leah shows signs of abuse and allows her to lead the way. I enjoyed watching these two fall in love and work together to get back to the camp.
Nice happy ever after, too. A perfect book to read by the pool, beach, or summer cottage.

I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I disliked The Dominant and I thought that The Enticement was a new book in a new series. ItI'm pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I disliked The Dominant and I thought that The Enticement was a new book in a new series. It's not. The Enticement is book 4 in The Submissive series. Now a little disclaimer - I had read books 1-3 in their original online form years back and enjoyed them immensely. I don't know why The Dominant annoyed me so much when I read it last summer but I feel that The Enticement was a spicy hot read and I loved watching the main characters Abby and Nathaniel adjust to life as parents of young children. It's something that most parents can relate to - the lack of personal time when those little people rule the roost, and generally wake up earlier than the roosters. It can really put a crimp in your "couple time."
I liked how Abby and Nathaniel's relationship was in a state of negotiation. With Abby's new responsibilities as a mother and Nathaniel's busy work schedule, the couple struggle with finding some balance in their sex lives. It really surprised me that they did not have a nanny to pawn the children off to, however they did have a doting relative that jumped at the chance to babysit the little ones.
Abby and Nathaniel's play time just wasn't working for them. And therein begins the negotiations. Abby decides that she will try a 7 day/24 hour schedule with Nathaniel on a trip to Delaware.
With all relationships comes that moment of doubt. Abby doubts Nathaniel's fidelity and it affects her deeply. I think that this was quite realistic, especially since the children were taking up so much of Abby's time. It didn't help that another woman was making a play for Nathaniel.
Because of her lifestyle, Abby is presented with an intriguing job offer. Abby's Submissive Wife blog received a lot of attention and she was offered a job. Abby takes on the job and I feel that this allowed her character to shine.
Nathaniel seems to have mellowed out. Either I am getting used to him, or he has definitely relaxed around Abby. He still has a little sadist within him, but you can see how much he loves Abby.
The sex scenes are spicy hot and well written. Enough said. Read the book.
The Enticement contains scenes of BDSM and is intended for an adult audience.

These books can be read as stand alone books, so no worries about reading the series in order should you find yourself with this book in hand. Ms. McKenna excels in telling stories about the lives of military personnel and is especially sensitive to the hardships they encounter while on duty.
The Review: If you enjoy military romance, Lindsay McKenna’s Shadow Warriors series may be for you. In Taking Fire, we meet Khat Shinwari, and Afghan-American sniper and member of the elite black-ops Shadow Warriors. Khat rescues Mike Tarik, a Saudi-American Navy SEAL and nurses him to health in her cave hideaway. The couple spend a lot of intense time together, hiding from the Taliban and trying to get back to the base. I enjoyed watching these Khat and Mike fall in love. Khat has a lot of personal baggage: she is emotionally and physically scarred and suffers from PTSD. While this book reminded me a little of an earlier book in the series, it still was a satisfying read and it would make a wonderful summer by the beach or pool read.

Mind Magic is the 11th book in the series. We've gotten to know the world throughout the series. There's magic, all sorts of supernatural creatures, magical divisions of the FBI, and a wonderful lead couple. The characters have grown and developed and we learn more about their talents and abilities. There's also some intriguing politics in these books - you have to be pretty clever to deal with some of the magical races. A new character with Asperger's is introduced and it was so very interesting to see the world through her eyes. The author captured that character's challenges and abilities extremely well.
I loved the brownies. When I grew up, brownies were little girls in brown uniforms. In this book, they are a childlike race who enjoy playing tricks on big bad mercenaries. So cute...

The little jaguar shifter cubs were a cute addition/diversion for our lead couple to take care of.
The Review: Terry Spear is one of my favorite paranormal romance writers. Her Heart of the Wolf series had just the right amount of romance and humor. The Heart of the Jaguar series is a little more serious with environmental themes throughout. Jaguar Pride is action packed – think muddy rain forest and poachers. Melissa and Huntley are a very hot couple and it was fun watching them fall in love. I adored the addition of the jaguar cubs to keep Melissa and Huntley on their toes. Very cute.
Jaguar Pride can be read as a stand alone book or as part of the series.

A solid start to author Chloe Neill's new series Devil's Isle. The book is set in New Orleans seven years after a war with the Beyond. New Orleans is in the Zone and the city is suffering from a lack of resources. Food is scarce, electricity is spotty, and anyone exhibiting any magical tendencies is isolated at Devil's Isle. I loved the choice of New Orleans for this series. The city has a colorful past full of magic and voodoo making it a perfect setting.
The main character Claire Connolly is a Sensitive and must hide her magical abilities from the authorities. Her biggest fear is that her magic will consume her and cause her to turn into a Wraith. Claire meets bounty hunter Liam Quinn after a brush with a pair of wraiths. Liam is not only good looking, he has fantastic contacts all over the place, even at Devil's Isle. Liam helps Claire get a handle on her magic and they work together to find out what is causing the wraiths to attack.
I enjoyed this story and I feel that this will become a wonderful series. There were a few inconsistencies such as availability of electricity, but they could be overlooked. I loved the secondary characters, especially Gunnar. I can't wait to read more books in this series.

I listened to the audiobook version of this book - all 55 hours of it. Yup, 55 hours. Luckily, the narrator Davina Porter is amazing and she does make the book come alive.
I've listened to the first 4 books in this series back to back and now it is time for a break. While I love Jamie and Claire, I kind of don't have the same feelings for Brianna.
The historical aspect of the book is interesting however I feel that it would be incredibly difficult for someone to jump from the 1970's to the 1700's without making some gaffes. As I listened to the book, I thought about all the things we take for granted like electricity, indoor plumbing, sanitation, vaccines, household appliances, big box stores, etc. and wondered how I would do without.
Anyhow, I'll get back to this series as the TV show catches up. Can't wait for that!...more
While the story is something new in the paranormal romance world, something about the story just didn't click for meAbout a 3 -3.5 star read for me.
While the story is something new in the paranormal romance world, something about the story just didn't click for me right away. We have Eric the brooding hero, contending with a horrible family curse which turns him into an ice man and makes him want to hunt down and attack a woman on every winter solstice. Our heroine Olivia is tasked with bringing some documents for Eric to sign. Little does she know that Eric's father had ulterior motives. Then there's the wolves who hold a grudge against his family. They want to kill Eric and will stop at nothing. The story takes place in an isolated mansion surrounded by snow.
I liked that the story was loosely based upon Nordic mythology of Loki, Fenrir, and Odin. This is a mythology that I am not familiar with and it added an interesting perspective to the story. With regards to the romance - it was a very slow buildup, most of which was Eric getting all angsty that he should not be anywhere near Olivia. Olivia had way too much confidence in their love - not really worrying that she would be hurt.
Paranormal romance fans should enjoy this book.

I love listening to Ms. Porter's various voices and her portrayal of all the characters is fantastic.
For the story itself, Ms. Gabaldon is a master storyteller. I never thought I could get into this series, just because of the the length of each book. I feel compelled to keep listening to the story at all hours. The attention to the historical details makes the story so fascinating. Sure, I get frustrated with Brianna and Roger's situation. Then I have to chuckle at Jamie's reactions to things that today's dads wouldn't even react to.

I've always avoided this series because of its rather hefty tomes. I mean, who has the time to read 800-1000 pages per book, over 8 (and I believe more) books? That's quite the commitment. I then discovered the audio book version of this series and while it took me a little while to warm up to the narrator, I now love listening to her voice and the various voices she does for each character. Let me tell you that this narrator made the book for me. She portrays each character so well, it's almost like listening to a full cast reading.
And let's just take the sexy parts for example - this narrator does a verra sexy Jamie - you ken?
I don't want to go into the plot other than the story moves along well over time and space. :)
By the way, make sure that your Ipod or MP3 player has lots of space because this book ran at about 44 hours.

Set in Melbourne, Australia the book follows Detective Samantha Ryan after she shoots and kills her partner of 5 years Jack Kazdan. Only he's not really dead. And Sam has been suspended. And...Sam seems to have some special abilities she was not aware of.
Enter Gabriel Stern of the Special Investigations Unit, a part of a covert group called the Federation and also known as Spook Squad. Gabriel is investigating the case and sees that Sam is unique, something that has not been seen in over 50 years. Sam is interested in proving her innocence - and she likes to work alone - just like Gabriel.
I don't know. It was really hard to stick with this book. I had difficulty connecting to either Sam or Gabriel. Sam played the TSTL card often and took some unnecessary risks with her life. Gabriel was just too secretive for me to fully enjoy the book.
I've got to hand it to Jack. Jack was probably one of the most annoying villains I've encountered in a while.
I felt that the plot could have been better developed, perhaps giving the reader a little more information about the paranormals from the start, rather than making us wonder why the characters were so important.

IThis is a review of the audio version of the book which comes in at a whopping 39 hours and 25 minutes. That's quite a commitment and well worth it. I found myself walking just a little bit more, cleaning the house for a little bit longer, and well, if you have trouble sleeping - Davina Porter has a wonderful voice to listen to.
Once again, I was transported to Jamie and Claire's world. This book was full of intrigue and positioning for power as Charles Stuart was gathering his supporters. A lot of politics, and part of this book took place outside of Scotland. Also the first part of the book did not have Jamie and let me just say, he was sadly missed.
I think that I am lucky that I listened to this book. I'm not sure that I would have stuck this out had I been reading it. The first and last part of the book are in the present (or Claire's present time 1968) and the rest of the book details the time Claire and Jamie had together.
I love Claire. She is strong and fierce and not afraid to say what's on her mind. She is extremely adaptable, I mean, can you imagine going back in time 200 years and trying to live without the comforts of our world? And how to you explain the things that we know for facts when others see those same things as witchcraft? I love how Jamie rushes to her rescue at just the right time though it has been pointed out to me that Claire rescues Jamie many times as well.

InA fascinating tale and a wonderful addition to the Shattered Seas series. I fell in love with the first book and Half the World did not disappoint. In this installment, the focus is on two new characters Brand and Thorn. Both are learning how to be warriors under the tutelage of Master Hunnan. It was nice to see a fierce female lead character. And Brand is a wonderful "sidekick" to Thorn as his skills complement hers. Characters that we've grown to love in the previous book like Father Yarvi are still around working their diplomatic skills, trying to avoid the inevitable war.
