Dianne
She’s a brilliant, beautiful and intriguing geneticist currently researching canine DNA and its potential benefits for humans. She also has a secret, she can communicate with animals, but unlike her fantasy equivalent, all is not song and dance. Victory is on the run, trying to stay just one step ahead of a conglomerate that wants to use her research for vile purposes. Blackmailed into working for them, Victory is taken to an island paradise, most likely with only a one way ticket, unless ...more

WOW!! This is the kind of debut novel that every author dreams about writing!

Chasing Victory is perfect and masterful blending of science fiction, romance, and the paranormal into one tight perfectly delivered book. Page after page, I found myself becoming more and more engrossed with the story and its characters. You can even ask my husband when I tell you that he missed a meal because of this book. I think one of the biggest reasons why this book resonated with me so much is

Ms. Joanne Jaytanie debut novel is an amazing paranormal story!

Her sexy hero and strong, intelligent heroine are a perfect match for this paranormal romance.

Her telepathic link with Tristan, the hero, developed when they were first thrown together and he had posed as her lab assistant. She was kidnapped by Lawrence Braxton, CEO of Biotec. She was forced to continue her work

This book kept me turning those pages with out wanting to put it down. Loved how the dog world became part of the book. As a dog person, I can relate to the emotions of the dogs, how you could "see" them as the story went along and you could become a part of the family.

This is the first book by Joanne Jatanie I have read and I have to say that I am impressed. I loved this book. It was a great read earning 5 Stars from me!

She witnesses her friend Jeffery get shot and she is scared and on the run. Then right after Tristan Farraday, hot sexy undercover Naval officer of elite government team, picks up her trail. He is

This was an action packed, thrilling read. Victory is a geneticist with telepathic abilities. She receives a call from a former classmate and goes to meet them. Then the drama unfolds, she witnesses a murder and is now on the run. Be prepared for murder, mystery and intrigue. I really want the rest of the series now!! Couldn't put it down.
Ashley Martinez (ilovebooksandstuffblog)
A dangerous suspense novel that kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the high risk and tension throughout the book.
The characters were relatable and entertaining to read. Their chemistry was tangible and they just fit together perfectly.
I recommend this story to paranormal suspense lovers who enjoy romance, action and adventure.

She also has a special innate ability she keeps secret: she has almost a telepathic gift to communicate with animals. As head of her department, she’s currently researching canine DNA and its potential benefits to humans.

Then one day, Victory receives a cryptic

I am not sure what I expected from this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is an engaging story that is kind of light on the romance. Really terrific read!

Victory is a great character, she has sass and gumption. I love that she is smart enough to save herself most of the time. She has a terrific relationship with her sisters and I hope we see more of that over the series.

Tristan is yummy, I totally did a hero type. He is a perfect match for Victory. He is smart enough to let her have her

This is not the first time in reading this author but I could kick myself for not reading this one sooner. I have had it on my tbr for awhile and was in between books not quite sure what to read next but had several that needed to be read for review when I remembered this one and opened it up. That was all she wrote in a manner of speaking. After the first few pages I was so intrigued and the author had me snared. After the hair raising event she opens it up with I just had to see what Victory ...more

Be prepared for action right out the gate. Intense, that would be a good way to describe this story, Intense. It kept my attention through out. Victory is a smart, beautiful (of course) woman who is multi-talented. Some of those talents are unique and deeply hidden from others. For being a smart woman, she was confident and in the beginning of the book, she was overconfident. That lead her right into a really dangerous situation. I just wanted to yell at her, "for being such a smart woman, how ...more

Victory receives a call from an ex saying he needs her help with something and to meet at their old picnic spot. When she gets there she ends up witnessing his death. Now she is on the run. She knows that they will be after her so she goes to her sister. She can sense that someone is following her. There is something more to Victory than meets the eye.

Tristan is Military and works under his brothers command. He was already following Victory's ex. Now his goal, since they now know Victory is

Chasing Victory is so different from the other Books I have read from Joanne Jaytanie. This is the first book in the Winter Sister series, and if you like Military romance and and you like paranormal this is a good mix and has sweet moments and it has suspenseful moments that keep you turning the page and loving the characters.
Victory Winters is a world-renowned geneticist and possesses the ability to communicate with animals on a deeper level then normal. She uses her ability to communicate

Victory is a scientist dealing with DNA and also telepathic. She knows what dogs are thinking and feeling. She is kidnapped by a ruthless Braxton, CEO of Biotec. He kidnaps her to do DNA testing with animals mixed with humans. He’s doing this to make a strong army of soldiers. He is a very evil man.

I was lucky enough to receive an A.R.C. of this but that does not colour my review in any way.

I could not put this down. A very fast paced story, full of fun , danger and a little hot romance. Both our hero and heroine are intelligent, strong and of course sexy.
Victory is forced to work for people who are experimenting on human D.N.A. The powerful company seem to have limitless resources.
Tristan has been tracking the people involved in this research and finds out about Victory. When they team

This book has quite the sort of excitement with military ops, romance, paranormal behavior and with the inclusion of Dobermans. She writes with a descriptive flare, and an accuracy for details. The author sets up the characters and scenes very well with an image of being there, and when the time was right the story picks up the intensity only to satisfy your curiosity. Definitely a book that was hard to put down. The unique telepathic abilities of the protagonists add another layer to this page ...more

This book grabbed me right from the get go & it was difficult to put down, I became so engrossed in the story. The main characters are intelligent, strong and quite unique. I enjoyed the way the author developed their relationship throughout. The secondary characters were all interesting and by the end of the book I was looking forward to hearing more from them in the next instalment in the series. The romance in a couple of parts was a bit steamier that I prefer in a book, however there ...more

This book was different, and I really enjoyed reading it, of course I paid more attention to the romance side more than anything else because well, that's me, and Tristan I loved, "Tristan blinked at the bright light and rubbed his face. "Jesus," he muttered to himself. It happened again. He was going to have to really work hard at staying focused and in the present when Victory was around. "Jesus," he said again. He felt like some sixteen-year-old kid with his first crush." Once you get Tristan ...more

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The copy of the book I received could definitely use a good editor. Paragraphs out of order caused some confusion while reading.

Despite the editing issues I really enjoyed this book. Love a book that has Military Guy and Geeky/Scientist Girl paired up. The story kept me entertained from the get go and found it hard to put down. Loved the slight paranormal aspect to the story and look forward to the next one to see
