I was sucked into this fantasy romance from the first page. I loved the mystery and the connection between the hero Lon and the heroine Willa. From the moment the sexy and wet from head to toe Lon knocked on Willa’s door at 3am she was enthralled by his masculine and mysterious presence. I admit I was pretty smitten right along with her. I really thought that Wi

Overall Rating: 3 to 3.5 Rockin’ ★★★☆

Prepare yourself to be entertained as you read this great story. As I read this book, I was reminded of Cinderella, her evil step-mother and two sisters. This book has so many elements running through it that you will need your imagination to follow all the amazing action taking place. The biggest question is “Who is Aunt Jenny” and where did she go?

Willow is running and living at her aunt’s bookstore hoping that her aunt will return. Willow’s mother sent he

I loved J.C.’s description of water sprites – a refreshing supernatural character I wouldn’t mind seeing more of. Lon was interesting, confined to appearing in human form only during storms, and I enjoyed his background. The problem with short stories is there’s a limited time for characterization and the romantic chase, which I personally look forward to. Add in the mystery of a missing aunt, and there’s a lot of ground to cover. I wanted to slap some self-esteem into Willa more than once, I ad ...more

This book was received free via the author for an honest review and reviewed for My Book Addiction Reviews, where my full review is not yet up.

The Shucker's Booktique is a suspenseful paranormal romance with a new and interesting twist in the form of a Tempest, or water sprite.

Willa was a bit of a Cinderella character, what with her family and fiancé treating her so badly. But she grew a spine, loves her aunt, and really com

While I can't say too much about this story without giving it away, I enjoyed it greatly and hope to see a future book soon.

Willa has been put down all her life and little real joy has come her way. She is running the book store because her Aunt Jenny has vanished and her mother is a horrible greedy

One night during a storm Lon appears at her door and her life starts to change and will never be the same.

This is a wonderful story, it is a bit rushed it seems and Willa really needs to get stronger

This sweet, short story take place in Lobster Cove, a fictional town and part of a various-author series by The Wild Rose Press.

Straying from the normal paranormal characters, the hero Lon is a Tempest. (Don't know what a Tempest is? Read the book to find out!) Together Lon and our heroine, Willa, face a number of challenges while looking for Willa's missing aunt.

The end-of-the-book-hook is not an OH NO! moment, but is instead a HOPE THIS AUTHOR CONTINUES THE STORY moment.

Want a fresh romance that takes place in a small sea-side town, and sweeps you away to another world, filled with passion an mystery? Then this is the short story for you. JC McKenzie skillfully pulls you into a mythical realm you don't want to leave. And the hero is... dangerously handsome.
