Wow just wow, this one has it all from hot romance to wolf shifters, cat shifters, vampires and magic. This is a great story about Broderick and Elise how she became a vampire and how she escaped. Also tells the story of the vampire shaman and his obsession with her and finally her rescue by her husband and his friends. This is a great story and look forward to more from this author

Without a doubt Returned is another gem in the Circle of the Red Scorpion series. This is an absolute must read. This author totally commits to the development of her characters and how they interact with each other. Her attention to detail is exceptional. It is very obvious that she did extensive research for this book. She wrote about the Mayan culture with such authenticity that a reader could easily feel transported back into Mayan history. Her use of symbolism, cultural influences, and trad ...more

Charlene Johnson delivered yet another solid read that kept me glued to my screen from start to finish.
This book takes off after Shattered, Avenged & Dawned so note that it is not a standalone but needs to be read after the other books. Broderick is trying to rescue his abducted mate before the vampire who captured her makes her fully lose her humanity.
The book fills in the gap about what happened to Elise after her 'death' explaining more about the paranormal world created by the author

What a tumultuous, nail biting, suspense filled finish to the series. This book ties everything together from the first two books in a way that really satisfied my curiosity. There is plenty of action and adventure at every turn. Century old secrets are revealed, scores are settled and all factions unite to fight against the evil trying to take over the world. I can not pick out one character over the other. They were all written so well that each one had my full attention every time they spoke. ...more

I absolutely love this series but I had to re- read from book 1 to remember what was going on and the characters and I’m so glad I did and this is the continuation of Broderick’s and Elise’s story. Elise was kidnapped from the balcony of their home and Broderick suspects Elijah but Broderick is shocked when he finds out that lots of werewolves have been taken as well and now Broderick and his team are getting close to finding Elijah and Elise his mate. That’s all I’m going to give you guys this ...more

Absolutely fantastic! Action packed, exciting, keep you on the edge of your seat story!

I wasn’t sure what this book was going to be except for awesome- our wonderful author takes risks with the things she puts her characters through and I love that!

Broderick and Elise needed this story to bring them back to where they began. It’s beautiful and emotional! They are strong and their love is even stronger. They go through so much but because of it they learned even more about themselves and each oth

This is the 4th book I've read written by Charlene Johnson; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.
