Book Review: Hunter's Curse by Pandora Pine
Hunter's Curse (A Cold Case Psychic Spin Off, #5)Hunter's Curse by Pandora Pine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I'm a little late to the Pandora Pine party as this is the first book of hers that I've read. Wheee, this was a roller coaster ride of fun, action and hot man sex. I have to say I was most impressed with her writing style and the world she's created. The characters are gorgeous too.

This book starts in the 418 AD. Demon slayer Hunter Conroy is caught in a trap of evil warlock Osian. The choice he was given, join Osian and kill his own family and other demon slayers like him, or be cursed to spend eternity as a stone gargoyle for ninety years of ever one hundred and then a brief ten year reprieve before the choice was offered again. Hunter, of course, declined. And then spent the next six centuries watching the world change through the unblinking eyes of his gargoyle save for those ten tiny years of freedom granted as reminder that he'd spend the next ninety in stone.

In 2010 Hunter came out of his gargoyle to find himself in Salem, Massachusetts. He'd made a quiet life for himself but had somehow found himself pulled into the community's more supernatural side despite trying to lie low. And then he meets Doctor Walker Harmon. And for the first time in centuries Hunter has someone to fight for, someone to stay for. But his curse is coming due and Osian will turn him back into a gargoyle, possibly forever this time around. But Salem protects its own and the community of witches, psychics, vampires and magic users band around Hunter and Walker, determined to break the evil warlock's curse and give the couple the happily ever after they deserve... but are they enough to stop a centuries old warlock who has a fallen angel on his side?

Read the book and find out!

ARC REVIEW Cocksure by Shiloh Walker

Cocksure (Cochrans of Cocker County, #1)

The Cochrans of Cocker County #1, It feels so nice to get a Shiloh Walker book in my hands again. Shiloh has created a fantastic family series this along with being a wonderful romance it was a great introduction to the family, I can't wait for the other books. The emotions in this book run deep, I was in tears at a couple of parts. Luke and Sabrina are hot together. It's a friends to lovers romance with an alternating first person POV. The characters have great depth and you really empathize with them, you root for them and when Luke does something stupid you want to hit him upside the head Gibbs style. 

Sabrina works as Luke's personal assistant and has been in love with him for years and she' come to accept that they could never be a thing she's happy just being in his life as is until his mom gets sick. Luke is a nice guy, despite being a playboy and very aware of his good looks and a bit self centered, okay a lot self centered but when someone he loves needs help he will go the distance to help them. Sabrina sees more than just movie star Luke she sees him for who he really is and that's who she fell in love with.

When Luke's mom starts having heart problems Sabrina works miracles to rearrange his schedule so he can go to her. In Luke's hast to reassure his mom that he is happy he blurts out that Sabrina and him are engaged which inadvertently gets leaked to the press and now Sabrina is forced into Luke's spotlight. As much as she doesn't want it and hates lying to his family she loves him and agrees to do it. Luke in all this pretending finally realizes he's not pretending he really does love Sabrina. But something from Luke's past comes up, something he's been hiding from for years and he lashes out and hurts Sabrina in the worst way possible. But once Luke gets his past sorted out he's determined to set things right with Sabrina.

Overall, I am already in love with this family and it's a good size family, so I really am looking forward to many more books and the other siblings falling. I love Shiloh's writing style, hot romance, witty banter, and emotionally damaged characters you can see grow and become better. It's a great story on so many levels.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Nick and Eve 
by Elle Rush 
(North Pole Unlimited, #3) 
Publication date: November 19th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

 

 

BLURB:

 

Nick’s plan: dodge his grandmother’s matchmaking attempts by claiming Eve is his date for Christmas. He probably should have asked Eve first.

 

Although Nick Klassen is grateful when Eve rides to his rescue after he breaks down outside of December, Manitoba, he can’t run fast enough when his meddling grandmother tries to set him up with the pretty tow-truck driver. Then he gets an idea.

 

Between juggling extra hours at work and a never-ending Christmas to-do list, Eve LeBlanc doesn’t have time for a new man in her life. But ever since she picked Nick up on the side of the road, she’s been running into him everywhere.

 

His flirtations started innocently enough but when his grandmother invites “his girlfriend” to the family’s Christmas dinner, Nick realizes if he wants to stop pretending about Eve, he must come clean. Once Eve learns of his deception, he’ll need Santa’s help to turn their fake relationship in the real thing.

ELLE’S CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST

 

 

There is nothing like a good playlist to put you in the right frame of mind. They are especially important when you are trying to write a trapped-by-a-blizzard scene during an August heat wave. Fortunately, I have a massive collection of Christmas music to get me through.

 

(I’m dating myself, but the first holiday album I can remember singing along to is “Elvis’ Christmas Album.” My mom was the biggest Elvis fan on the planet. I still know all the words to “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me”. Go ahead, test me!)

While I prefer upbeat carols, I must admit my all-time favourite is a little on the sadder side. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” breaks my heart every time. It’s perfect for every Christmas movie when the hero and heroine end up tragically separated for the holidays...just before a seat magically opens up on the next flight home, or a group of strangers offer to get them closer to home in a town-by-town relay, or a tow truck appears to save the day (hint, hint.) Because every Christmas romance needs to end with the couple kissing on Christmas Day!

 

My playlists also get a workout when I’m baking Christmas cookies and wrapping presents.

 

 

Top 5 Songs:

 


1. I’ll Be Home for Christmas (because it must lead to a happy holiday story ending)


2. White Christmas (I’m from Manitoba – all Christmases are under two feet of snow)


3. All I Want for Christmas is You (Mariah Carey has the voice of an angel)


4. Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord (instantly lifts my spirits, it’s so bouncy)


5. Christmas Eve (I too have waited all year for this, Kelly)

 

I have several Christmas playlists, but all my favourites are listed under “Elle Rush’s Christmas Playlist” on Spotify, so please have a listen for yourself. (You can also search under “ellerushauthor”.)

SA Brown is a writer in every sense of the word. She started as a contributing author in one of Zane’s Chocolate Flava series. After that, she was hooked.

Born and raised in Mississippi, SA began writing full time in 2010. She started writing one act plays and producing them in the community theaters. She completed the first draft of Still Not Satisfied in 2012 and actively searched for a publisher. After numerous rejection letters, she decided to focus on the stage. She traveled South Mississippi with her socially motivated one act plays using the Theater for Social Change model.

 

In 2015, SA moved to Atlanta and felt it was time to bring Still Not Satisfied to life. She found Prodigy Gold Books, a press out of Philadelphia and a dream was born.

In addition to her novel, she has launched her own production company, SAB Entertainment. Through this channel, SA is writing and producing short films. In May 2018, she produced her first full stage play, Family Lies and plans to tour the Southeast with it in 2019. Always writing, SA just completed the screenplay adaptation of Still Not Satisfied which she will pitch to producers. Currently, she is writing a web series, The Inner Circle. SA hopes to start production in summer 2019.


With hopes of educating while entertaining, SA’s biggest desire is that everyone learns a life lesson every time they walk away from any of her stories.

A Night To Remember by Celeste Bradley & Susan Donovan
A Night to Remember - Celeste Bradley,Susan Donovan

In Wedding Knight Katrina Trapp takes her nervous twin sister's place at the altar, only to find out her sister never had any intentions of marrying Alfred Theodious Knight in the first place...


This was a quick, quirky and funny little romp about a woman switching places with her sister, who ends up disappearing and leaves her in the lurch of being married to a supposed tyrant of a man. But as the two newlyweds come to get to know each other, they also rediscover themselves, and dare we hope fall in love?

I liked the two protagonists, although I felt Katrina was a tad too bratty at times, and I loved how they slowly changed for one another as they got to know each other and developed tender feelings of one another. Of course, seeing how everything was based on a switch, the inevitable twist had to come.
I felt it was resolved a little too quickly, but that's scandal for you.

A lovely little budding romance story.



In Have Mercy Winifred Mackland, having failed to deliver a good manuscript, is packed away on a forced writing retreat by her agent...Who turns out to have matchmaking tendencies...


Quick, funky and hot as hell.

Initially, I felt it was all moving a tad too quickly (even for a short story), but as it moved along, and the two got into their easy rhythm beyond jumping naked into the hot tub on the day they met, I came to love them and their little romance.

The progress and the reservations thanks to Mac's profession, was organic and realistic, and they were super cute and super hot together. Besides, the story made me smile, which is always a plus.
