Last Chance (Royal-Kagan Shifter World #7) by Nancy Corrigan
Last Chance - Nancy Corrigan
Last Chance is Gwen's story, with Xander and Vlad/Vader. We met her at the same time we met Molly, but then she disappeared. Xander left his pack in the care of Xane, his twin brother, and put all his time and energy into finding her. Vlad was also doing the same, with Shifter Affairs as his back up. Both of these males have a history with Gwen, but none that she is aware of. Their history comes from previous incarnations that Gwen can't yet remember, and they always have a sad ending. Because triads aren't common, neither Vlad nor Xander were aware of the implications in Gwen's past lives. However, with the triad that has now happened, the way is open for them to finally make their soul-bond... if Gwen can forgive them for their errors.
 
Yes, Gwen is a virgin and she's human, but she is NOT weak. She has weak moments, when events overwhelm her, but come on, be honest. If you had undergone all that she has, you'd feel overwhelmed at times too. And don't forget, once you've stopped fighting for your life, the adrenaline drops, and it is then that you feel overwhelmed. I loved Gwen, and her sassy, feisty attitude, that will not just accept what her mates are telling her. Xander and Vlad are both exceptional males, but that didn't stop me from wanting to whomp them upside the head when they started - either at each other, or their misguided attempts of 'protecting' Gwen. There is so much in this story, more than enough to get your teeth into. Molly, the Ulgran clan, Lena, past incarnations, current situations, prickly males and sassy females. Not only do you get Gwen's story, but you get an update on Lena and Molly, with it being an integral part to both this story and moving forwards.
 
With no editing or grammatical errors, the pacing was smooth, leading to a gripping story with natural peaks and troughs. It flowed smoothly, from one scene to the next, leading up to the ending. I was completely enthralled with this story, and it has definitely left me a) wanting to read them all again, and b) waiting oh so patiently for the next one!
 
Highly recommended by me.

Honesty
Leaning Into Touch (Leaning Into Stories) (Volume 3) - Lane Hayes

This book is technically the 4th book in the series, though it is labeled as book #3 in the Leaning Into Stories series.   This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers and have a greater understanding of the series, I recommend reading these books in order.

 

Josh is unsure what he wants to do with his future, now that his current job is complete.  He is trying to work this out as he runs into an ex that he has never really gotten over.  Can he trust his feelings to try again with Finn, even though he is a mess about the rest of his life?

 

Finn never wanted to say goodbye in the past to Josh.  Running into him repeatedly lately feels like fate taking a hand.  Can he convince the skittish man to give him another chance?

 

This story just stole my heart.  These characters so obviously belong together.  I loved the very real heartache they expressed.  I also felt the heat with the sexy times.  Really good read and addition to the series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A Chance This Christmas (Road to Romance) by Joanne Rock
A Chance This Christmas (Road to Romance Book 3) - Joanne Rock

 

Gavin and Rachel chose to take the scenic route to love.  The trip consisted of regrets, betrayals and heartache, but the endgame proved worth every bump in the road.  It's never too early to get in the holiday spirit.  Especially when you live in a picturesque town like Yuletide.  Ms. Rock takes the best parts of the holiday season and places them in a small town setting.  A Chance This Christmas is a Hallmark movie just waiting to be made.  On the wings of love, Ms. Rock delivers a story of forgiveness, new beginnings and heartwarming fun.

Didn't Like It
Second Chance Cowboy (Road to Romance Book 2) - Joanne Rock

Larissa Martine is starting over in Las Vegas after a failed career in New York. Along the way, she’s promised her friends she would stop by her hometown in Cheyenne, WY and make peace with her ex, Matt Briggs, whom she left without an explanation.

This book started out good but once the interactions between Larissa and Matt began, very quickly they were bypassing the whole crux of her leaving. This happens a lot with second chance romances and it’s a big irritation of mine with this genre.

ARC review: SEDUCED BY FIRE by ERIN KELLISON
Seduced by Fire - Erin Kellison

Third installment in the Dragons of Bloodfire series. It’s supposed to be read as a standalone but I truly think you need to read the series in order to thoroughly enjoy this book although that’s not completely necessary. 


As great as life may be for any Bloodkin (dragon) that has amassed a great fortune over the years, the fact that they are still different from any other human being makes for a very complicated life. Shifters, werewolves, vampires and other creatures are out and humans are not very accepting of them so they tend to stay hidden as much as possible. There are some evil creatures that actually want to take over the world and Aura becomes involved in one of their evil schemes. 

Mack is a very powerful and ancient dragon shifter that’s left his dragon life behind in exchange for a more calm and confined “normal” life as a college professor. It might not be as luxurious as it could have been if he lived as any other Bloodkin but his love for books and antiquities has made him more accommodating over the years. He and Bloodkin Aura were friends less than a century ago but circumstances separated them and now she is back in his life, asking for his help and rekindling old romantic flames. 

I think I’m a little biased when it comes to this author because whenever I start reading any of her books I’m already thinking I’m going to like it. Her narrative depicts quite a unique imagery; she’s got such a gift for creating the most fantastic worlds capable of transporting me to whatever place she’s decided to create. And although her dragon shifters are not the “sexiest” I’ve ever read, they are by far the most intriguing, interesting, and complex beings– when I say sexiest I mean they are not out looking to mate and claiming to be the best lovers ever, thank goodness- They even behave like true dragons, with hoards and all and with a folklore all of their own. 

Aura and Mack set out to retrieve some sort of artifact that according to myth it could empower any normal human and enslave the rest of humanity. Aura needed that artifact to ensnare something –or someone- that had escaped her a long time ago and trap it again. She was keeping her own agenda secret but whatever it was Mack was sure she’d confide in him with the right incentive. He wasn’t exactly in love with her but had had feelings for her since the day she met her. 
I don’t think this one is the most romantic story of the series however what I liked the most here was the honesty between Aura and Mack when it came to their feelings and the quest all the characters set out to find the artifact. One thing I didn’t like much was that the ending felt somewhat contrived and too lenient for the main villain of the story.

It’s always a pleasure to return to this world and will be looking forward for the next installment. 

I voluntarily read this book and my opinion here is my own
