Get ’em now – FREE Centaurs – Blood Debt by Nancy Straight @NancyStraight
Blood Debt - Nancy Straight

 

I thought I had won this signed, first edition paperback some time ago, but after doing a Teaser Tuesday for it, my sister, Laura, and I got to talking. She had two signed copies and had given me one. Thanks so much Laura.

 

Blood Debt is FREE, so grab you copy now.

MY REVIEW

 

Blood Debt is ,for me, an amazingly refreshing and original paranormal romance novel, heavy on the Greek mythology. I have not read a lot about Centaurs, but I am blown away by how much I ended up loving this story by the time I was done. It kept getting better and better and by the end, I was so involved with the characters, that I was screaming for more. 

 

The shifting point of view was confusing at first, but it didn’t take me long to adjust and the story flowed better, unfolding so rapidly in front of me that I forgot about it.

 

Camille had wondered who her father was, but never would have chose to lose her mom to find out. On her death bed, Camille’s mother did tell her who her father was and after some phone conversations and a background check (thank goodness for the internet, lol), she is flying to meet him. It struck me as odd, that anyone, especially a female, would go so quickly and alone on top of it. But, this is fiction and I am happy to overlook that and cut right to the chase.

Camille’s heritage traces back to the first Centaur touched by Zeus, but she is totally unaware of it. She does not know she is a Centaur, let alone know about their traditions and customs.

 

In a Centaur relationship, think the Stepford Wives in reverse. I love it. I couldn’t help but laugh. At first I thought it was creepy and funny, the woman is “queen” and the men give them no flak for it, but then I thought, someone has to be the boss. LOL The men worship the ground the women walk on and would do nothing to cross the traditional barriers, until….Cami

 

How far will you go for love? Cami is going to show us the way…and I am shocked by what’s happening on the page…..oops, sorry, it’s a secret. You will need to read her story for yourself. I NEVER saw anything like this coming and I am stunned by Nancy Straight’s ability to take the story to such a creative level. It just keeps getting better and better.

 

I guess I need to explain that a bit and you will see what I mean. Blood Debt started out as an easy 3 star novel. If it would have stayed that way, I would not have been disappointed. But, it didn’t take long and I knew I had to bump the rating. So, I thought 3 is out, it’s gotta be a 4, and that was a nice surprise. I would have been happy with that. But, it didn’t stop there. Well, I think you know where this is going.

 

I have a love/hate relationship with the characters. The torment and sacrifice they go through to follow the demands of their race, customs and traditions had me wondering how this could have a happy ending. At one point, my heart fell and I was devastated, but I did recover, in a very surprising fashion.

 

The more I read, the faster I went. A fantastic buildup to an ending that left me screaming for more, but, thankfully, I don’t have to wait for Centaur Legacy, Book II.

 

Laura, my sister, had a spare, signed, first edition paperback of Blood Debt by Nancy Straight and gave me the book. Thanks so very much Laura.

 

Now, I need the rest of the books. This is definitely one series I want to finish.

Can Lightning Strike Twice – Lightning Crimes by Chrys Fey @ChrysFey
Lightning Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 2.5) - Chrys Fey

 

 

Lightning Crimes by Chrys Fey, is part of the Disaster Crime series and I have been lovin’ every minute of it.

 

FREE SHORT STORY, LIGHTNING CRIMES

 

Cover:  Chrys Fey

 

Lightning Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 2.5)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Donovan and Beth have been through a hurricane and an earthquake, so a lightning storm should be a piece of cake and Chrys Fey’s descriptive writing makes me feel like I am there with them, through the clashing of the thunder, the flashes of the lightning, the pounding of the rain and the roaring of the wind, but there is more…a rock through a window, an open door that was locked, wet footprints on carpet…Chrys can create a suspenseful read whether its danger from storms or humans.

A Kidnapping & A Conspiracy – 3 Lies by Helen Hanson @HelenHanson
3 Lies - Helen Hanson

Creepy cover for 3 Lies by Helen Handson, don’t you think? How would you like to run into him in a dark alley?

 

Cover:  Domino Ink

 

3 Lies (Masters CIA Thriller, #1)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

 

MY REVIEW

 

Clint noticed the old van because it sounded like a sports car. He is on his way to Beth’s house.Beth is the love of his love. When he get there, she is nowhere to be seen. Where is she? Who has her? Do they know she does her own dialysis? Would they even care?

 

She has been kidnapped, ransomed for money.

 

An unrecognized code brought an alert to the CIA. No one could imagine how bad it was.

WTF is going on? And who’s behind it?

 

As Clint goes about his business, not knowing what to think of Beth’s absence, I want to scream and yell at him. What are you doing going fishing? CHECK IT OUT!

 

Helen Hanson has located this fabulous thriller on the coast of Massachusetts. I love when I am familiar with a story’s location. Adds that little bit of reality to the fiction. And I do love a good conspiracy, with Helen supplied in spades. Then add the dialysis Beth requires which makes the characters ring true. Wonderful job on 3 Lies Helen and I look forward to finishing the series.

Mad Scientists Run AMOK – Ashlynn’s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert @authorgilbert
Ashlynn's Dreams (Devya's Children Book 1) - Julie Gilbert

 

 

This is another one of those late reviews, but that is not to say I didn’t enjoy Ashlynn’s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert. Sometimes books just get lost….somewhere…

 

Ashlynn's Dreams (Devya's Children, #1)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Jillian is twelve years old, a precocious twelve year old. She is intelligent, opinionated, a little full of herself with a BIG personality. She is filled with southern charm that people could not resist. She also has a lot of courage and she is going to need it.

 

Danielle, her babysitter, has great respect for her and wants only the best for her.

 

Jillian is kidnapped, along with her babysitter and finds out she has a brother.

 

Scientists and secret experiments that raises all kinds of questions. Even though Ashlynne’s Dreams is fiction, some reality bleeds through. And, as usual, my anger rises to the surface. Who died and allowed them to play God?

 

The science fiction and psychic blend together seamlessly.

 

When Ashlynn enters Varick’s dream, I couldn’t help but laugh at the battle and her ability to change it. The humorous writing will appeal to young and old alike.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Ashlynn;s Dreams by Julie C Gilbert.

She’s More Than Meets The Eye – The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson @peterswanson3
The Kind Worth Killing - Peter Swanson

 

 

This is another overdue review and I loved The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson, so I don’t know why it took me so long to share it with you.

 

Thanks to Peter Swanson and William Morrow.

 

The Kind Worth Killing

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

On a plane from London to Boston, Ted and Lily meet. Does this sounds familiar? Even so, Peter Swanson gives it his own special twist that kept me reading, cover to cover.

Ted’s a rich businessman and Lily works is a free spirit. But you don’t want to cross her.

They begin a game of truth and it gets way out of hand. Just the kind of games I love reading about.

 

The circle of treachery went round and round, piece by piece. Things didn’t go as planned, but do they ever? The betrayals and vengeance was shared by all.

 

I knew what would happen…sorta…

 

Playing judge, jury and executioner can bring bad Karma to you.

 

The pacing of the mystery kept me reading, unable to put the book down. It plays with my head as I try to keep everything straight and figure out who’s going to do what to who. Do they really think they’ll get away with it? Will they get away with it? Who is they? Can a bad person be good? LOL Full circle.

 

The writing is fantastic. I read the book cover to cover in one sitting. I didn’t find all the answers until the very last page. Way to go Peter!
