Now emery was being taken from her high society life of order and reason and shipped out to the country to live with her father who was a werewolf who had never been in her life the first nineteen years of her life but all  of a sudden now Emery was to go live with him. Emery’s mom said it could have been worse the wolves could have killed her or Robert or even Laurence. So after nineteen years all of a sudden Emery is of enough importance to uproot Emery’s entire life. Emery hasn’t slept for more than an hour or the since the attack. The sound of bones crunching between massive jaws keeps jolting Emery awake. Now emery was on her way to her father’s home. When Emery gets there she meets Mitchell her father’s second in command. Emery learns her father is a werewolf one of the monsters and that she herself was half wolf and also her father Rick was the Alpha of not only this pack but the whole area.

Then emery is imprinted on by two wolves Mitchell and and dane which has never happened before. Em ends up sleeping for three days after the ceremony of who had really imprinted on her and it was both men. Then emery learns Laurence had been awake for a week and her mother had never let her know. Laurence and Emery had known each other since they were kids and had been best friends before they had started to date three years ago. Emery went to the hospital to see Laurence and finds out Laurence had been bitten by a wolf and was suppose to be killed because he would go feral after he changed.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I felt bad when Emery had went through her life without her father who obviously loved her and tried to do what he thought what was best for Emery There were a lot of first for Rick’s pack and the shifter world and I loved reading about them. I was happy the answers were found for Emery and Laurence. There was a lot of action and intrigue in this story that I thoroughly enjoyed.  I liked Emery with Mitchell but also Emery with Dane as they are different types of men. I love how it shows Emery and Rick’s relationship grow as well as emery;s acceptance of Rick’s pack and way of life and her  being a were also. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend

Esperance (Heart Lines Series #3) by Heather Hildenbrand
Esperance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance... Esperance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance) (Heart Lines Series Book 3) - Heather Hildenbrand

Heather Hildenbrand’s ESPERANCE is a thrilling addition to the Heart Lines Series.  The story takes place following book two, INHERITANCE.  Alex Channing is healed but no longer has feelings.  He leaves Sam. Samantha Knight is trying to learn how to use her powers.  She is troubled by Alex’s change of behavior.  This contemporary urban fantasy takes place in Half Moon.

 

Heather Hildenbrand continues to do a great job with her character development.  I felt bad about what was happening to Alex.  He was always leery of the price you pay when using magic.  He does pay a price.  I like Sam.  She is becoming more and more like her old self prior to losing her memory.  She is determined to learn her magic and help the werewolves and Alex.  She is a strong and admiral heroine.

 

We find out some interesting about Breck Winters.  I like the introduction of Koby.  He teaches Sam some important things and helps support her.  Indra is a fascinating antagonist.  She is cunning and powerful. 

 

The plot was well executed.  A lot of thought-provoking events unfold in this story.  I enjoyed the ending and look forward to the next book in the series, IMBALANCE.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Pre-Order Blitz and Giveaway for A Strange Companion by Lisa Manterfield
 
 
Title: A Strange Companion
Author: Lisa Manterfield
Genre: New Adult Paranormal
Release Date: April 4, 2017
 
 
 

Kat Richardson isn’t running away from grief; she’s just hiding out in a gloomy Welsh university town until she’s sure it’s gone. Now, one year, nine months, and 27 days after the climbing death of her first love, Gabe, she thinks she’s ready to venture out into the relationship world again. And Owen—a cake-baking, Super Ball-making chemistry student—appears to be a kind, funny, and very attractive option.

 

But the arrival of Kat’s newly adopted niece, Mai, forces her home to northern England, where she runs headfirst into all the memories of Gabe she’s tried to leave behind—and discovers that Mai stirs up an unnerving feeling of déjà vu. Before long, Kat’s logical, scientific beliefs about life after death are in battle with what she feels to be true—that reincarnation is real and Gabe has come back to her through Mai. The question now, is why?

 
Taking on the topics of love, loss, and how we deal with grief, A Strange Companion is a twisted love triangle among the living, the dead, and the reincarnated.
 
 
 

 
 
 
“A Strange Companion hooks the reader with its very first line and never lets go. The voice is unassuming and introspective, the prose elegant, and the descriptions sensuous.” ~Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators
“Manterfield presents a story - part romance, part mystery - about love and loss, and learning to live again. Reminiscent of The Art of Racing in the Rain, we can't help but embrace the dream that the ones we have loved and lost may one day return.” ~Julie Mayerson Brown, author of The Long Dance Home
“This beautiful blend of heartbreak, finding one’s self, grief, forgiveness, loss, and second chances, is a perfect rainy day read. I cannot say enough good things about this book! Read it with a box of tissues, as you will cry your eyes out.” ~The Reading Wolf
 
I ran my hand along the log, waiting for my fingers to find the small indentations I knew would be there. They didn’t. The initials and the heart that Gabe had carved into the bark of the log now lay beneath a smooth carpet of moss, as if our love was something lost to the past. I pressed my finger into the moss but not a single tear would come. I simply sat there on the log and remembered. Grief, apparently, had a mind of its own. It had snuck up on me in unexpected places, but now that I needed it, it would not do my bidding. I pushed up off the log, wiping at my dry eyes. I would be home for three full weeks, plenty of time to go looking for grief. My hometown was filled with memories of Gabe and I’d keep looking until I found them all.
 
 
 
The tiny dot of light I’d seen grew bigger. As it wrapped around me, my eyes were drawn towards it. I felt suddenly light and my mind seemed to float somehow in my head. I wanted to get up, to pull myself from the ground and go, to step into the warmth of the light and allow it take me away from here. A man’s voice filtered into my ears in a hazy blur. It was a kind voice, calling for me. Gabe. He’d found me. He’d come to deliver the rest of his message. I lifted my head to listen, determined not to miss a word this time. “Miss?” said the voice. “Are you all right?” I was close to the light now. If I kept on going, I was sure I wouldn’t come back. I wondered if Gabe would be there, arms open, waiting for me. I wanted to go. I had to get him. I pushed myself off the ground and moved towards the light. “Stay where you are!” yelled another voice, a woman’s this time.  A surge of pain shot through me. I opened my eyes and stared into the brightness. My head spun and the light seemed to flash all around me. I struggled to find my balance as a wave of nausea passed through me. Two dark figures moved in, their welcoming hands reaching for me. As my knees buckled I glimpsed the glint of a rectangular badge as the pool of light flashed across the word “Police.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Mai dropped to her knees and wrapped her arms around Frida’s enormous head. She rested her cheek against Frida’s bristly fur and the two of them lay there as if they’d been best pals forever. Luke reached down and ran his hand along Frida’s back. As he moved back to stroke again, his hand paused on Mai’s arm, curled around Frida’s neck. Luke froze.  I felt the air around us go still—all except for one crackle of energy that danced between Mai and Luke. I felt it, Luke felt it, Frida felt it . . . and so did Mai. Luke cast his eyes down at the little girl at his feet, who stared, unblinking, back at him. His brow wrinkled, as his mind struggled to understand what I knew his heart felt. Then, something passed between them that I had once seen pass between Luke and his brother. It was more than love, more than understanding, more, even, than blood. It was a deep connection, a spark between two people, two souls, who were inextricably intertwined.  Luke looked at me. “Did you feel that?” I nodded. “What was it?” I hesitated. I knew exactly what it was, but how could I tell Luke? It was one thing to tell Maggie about my suspicions, but Luke was Gabe’s brother. Was it fair of me to risk opening up the hurt I knew he’d spent the past two years trying to heal? But perhaps I wasn’t the only one Gabe needed to visit. I felt a prickle of excitement at the possibility that someone else might finally understand. Glancing back to make sure Luke and I were out of earshot, I leaned in and whispered. “I think it’s Gabe.” Luke narrowed his eyes at me. “He’s haunting her?” I shook my head. “Do you believe in reincarnation, Luke?” He shrugged, but the expression of curiosity on his face prompted me to take a chance. “I didn’t either until I met Mai.”

Inheritance (Heart Lines #2) by Heather Hildenbrand
Inheritance: (A New Adult Paranormal Rom... Inheritance: (A New Adult Paranormal Romance) (Heart Lines Series Book 2) - Heather Hildenbrand

Heather Hildenbrand’s INHERITANCE is an exciting addition to the Heart Lines series.  INHERITANCE takes place after book one, REMEMBRANCE, left off.  Samantha Knight regained her memory.  She and RJ are visiting Sam’s Aunt Kiwi in Guam to help her learn her magic.  Alex Channing took off to Alaska, knowing that it would cost Sam to heal him.  Eventually, they wind up back in Half Moon.  This paranormal romance is suitable for new adults and adults.

 

I like Sam. Her character transforms a lot now that she has her memory back.  She is becoming more like the person she was prior to losing her memory.  She is more outgoing and not as scared.  She is having difficulties learning how to use her healing powers.   She discovers the history behind the werewolves and how she is connected to them.    

 

Alex is a noble hero.  We learn more about his past and why he doesn’t want Sam to heal him.  He realizes he doesn’t have anything other than CHAS.  The werewolf venom takes its toll on him.  I respect his character and feel bad for his situation.

 

I like Sam and Alex together.  I keep feeling like there is more to their relationship that we have yet to discover.  I’m looking forward to seeing where their story goes. 

 

The plot was interesting with multiple twists.  Heather Hildenbrand did an excellent job constructing the history behind the werewolves and hunters. The story had another cliff hanger ending that left me eager for the next book, ESPERANCE, expected to be published on April 27, 2017.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Remembrance (Heart Lines #1) by Heather Hildenbrand
Remembrance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance) (Heart Lines Series Book 1) - Heather Hildenbrand

Remembrance by Heather Hildenbrand is a unique and entertaining start to the Heart Lines series.  Two years before the story began; Samantha Knight underwent a trauma that caused her to lose her memory.  She is no longer the outgoing individual she used to be.  Instead, she is paranoid and scared.  Supernatural hunter, Alex Channing, is slowly dying after being bitten by a werewolf.  His sole hope is for a cure that only Samantha could give him, if she could remember.  This contemporary PNR takes place in California.  It is suitable for New Adults.

 

Heather Hildenbrand did a wonderful job writing this book.  The character development was skillfully crafted.  I could sense Sam’s frustration at not remembering what happened to her.  You felt her confusion.  She discovers significant things about herself and what transpired to her throughout the story.  Alex has a secret and is harboring a lot of guilt.  He is a worthy hero who is brave, determined, and protective.  I enjoyed both main characters; they are multi-dimensional and complex. 

 

REMEMBRANCE was mysterious and full of twists.  The plot was well-executed.  REMEMBRANCE moves quickly and is thought-provoking.  There are occurrences in the story that are eye-opening.  The ending left me anxiously awaiting the next book from the series.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
