Fascinating world with equally fascinating characters. I was pulled in from the first paragraph. This was my first book of the series. I'm looking forward to going back and reading them in order. I felt the book ended abruptly without completing the story. It was really the beginning of what should really be a much longer book. Once I read the entire series I may re-evaluate my perspective on that. If this book (along with the rest of the series) was turned into a full length book this series ha ...more

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of Holding Hope, book 4.5 in the Seven Sin Sisters series, in exchange for my review.

Having been rescued by the TEU in book 2 (Eternal Envy) Ella has been taken to Lucas' family's cabin, particularly because he knows she is his mate and won't let anyone else near her. Lucas knows that he has to introduce Ella to their world slowly, particularly as she was raised away from the Breed and the Circle and knows nothing of

This riveting quick read in the Seven Sin Sisters series sees another Valendite Breed find his mate when he’s rescues her from his sworn enemy.
This short read is fast paced and is a romance that reaches the heart. The author brings it to life with well written scenes and captivating characters that capture the imagination.

The attraction between Lucas and Ella radiates lots of heat from every page and the sex scenes are hot and steamy. The relationship is well established in their case as Ella w

This is a review for both Holding hope and frozen fury. These were probably two of my favorites in the series. I loved the couples in these books. They just pulled me in. I could not put these down at all. I cannot wait to start the next one.

Not what I was expecting. Again, the female just accepts that some strange make she'd just meet, in his cabin, is her mate and that's it. I realize it's party of the storyline but it's just like so many others
Short and sweet. Missing a bit of detail for me, but understandable in a short story.

When you have a series, and someone starts in the middle, it would be nice to know what's going on. In places I kept saying WTF. I didn't understand what some things were or what was happening. There could have been a bit more explanation to update people who didn't read the series yet.

That being said, this was interesting. I may go and grab the first book in the series. I like the idea behind the plot and the ideas. If you're familiar with these books, read this. If not, maybe start at book 1!

A short story that tells the story of Lucas, Madden's brother. While it doesn't directly impact the Seven Sin Sisters prophecy, readers learn about Lucas's past and see him find his happily ever after.

Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ARe, Bookstrand and through Secret Cravings for FREE.

RECOMMENDED to be read as book 4.5 in the Seven Sin Sisters series.

the mysteries, how the woman ended up in human hands then mysteriously kidnapped for unknown reasons is never explained. nor is how her mate's parents accept her. unsatisfying.

Wasn't bad, too short.
