Book Review For: Touched By Danger Wendy Vella
Touched By Danger (A Sinclair & Raven Novel Book 3) - Wendy Vella

'Touched By Danger" by Wendy Vella is book Three in the "A Sinclair & Raven Novel " series. This is the story of Essex Sinclair and Max Huntington. I have not yet read the other books in this series (which I hope to fix shortly) so for me this was a standalone book.
Essex, her brothers and sisters all have a heighten fixture about them...and Essex is taste. But she has always felt the wicker of the family. Although she is them much loved person to come to for healing and comfort she still fills she is the weakest person in her family. While in her garden a man whose name she later finds out is Max, falls in her garden. She and her brother realize he has been shot and she does all she can to save him. When he wakes up and starts to feel better she finds she is attracted to him but she has been hurt before by a handsome face who lied.
Max knows someone is out to kill him just as the bullet in his side shows him. Max is very thankful to Essex and her family. Max finds Essex very beautiful and has a hard time fighting how he is feeling about her. But Max doesn't collect people and he doesn't want emotional ties it seems to anyone.
This book had drawn me in so fast that I couldn't put it down. In addition I loved the story so much I have to find the other books in this series. I so enjoyed the secondary characters too!
Highly recommend this book!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Book Review of Dead Time (Between Two Evils Book 3) by D. L. Orton
Dead Time (Between Two Evils) (Volume 3) - Micah McDonald,D. L. Orton

Shannon fights to stay alive inside a rogue biodome and discovers something totally unexpected... Peter. Lani is forced into the role of the reluctant heroine but rediscovers her street-kid mojo and sets out to find everything she's lost. Diego receives another dirty sock (and a note) from the poorly aimed fireball express: "The window between universes is closing." If Diego has any hope of getting back to Iz, he must get to the Magic Kingdom and power up the time machine before it's too late.


What could possibly go wrong?


Review 4*


This is the third book in the Between Two Evils series. I think this is the best story so far. I loved it!


Diego is a fantastic character. I really liked him. He is kind and loving. In this book his cheesy/pun-y speech is not as prevalent. However, this is due to the more serious subject matter, as well as him not being the central focus as a main character so much.


This story continues on from the end of book two and the reader is taken on an emotional roller coaster ride from beginning to end. This book focuses on three of the characters: Diego, Lani and Shannon, who each have their own chapters, though Shannon seems to be the main character focused on in this tale. There are also several new characters introduced and I must say that I felt sorry for Peter and the others living under the thumb of a meglomaniac (even though he was Peter's father). I really enjoyed watching Peter and Shannon's relationship grow. They make a really lovely couple and I wish them all the best. Meanwhile, Lani finds herself facing a life changing experience and locating a man long thought dead, and Diego is still determined to return to his Isabel in his universe.


Again, I found some of the story a little repetitive plot-wise, but there are a few twists that made up for it. There are also a few surprises thrown in for good measure, which kept things interesting. There is also an abundance of action, romance and danger that had me sitting on the edge of my seat more than once. This story doesn't end in a cliffhanger as such. There is an epilogue at the end that sets up the next book in the series and introduces a new character. Now I'm wondering what's going to happen next and I can't wait to find out.


DL Orton has written an intriguing time travel romance. I enjoyed her writing style, which is not as fast paced as some other authors I've read but it still had me turning the pages. The flow of the story is a lot smoother than the first book in the series and this made it a more pleasurable read. I would definitely read more of her books in the future.


There are no scenes of an explicit nature, and there is no mention of sexual activity (apart for some kissing) in this story. Having said that, I do not recommend this book to younger readers (under 16) due to the nature of the story, as well as some violence which could lead to a triggering event for some readers. However, I do recommend this book if you love dystopian or time travel romances. - Lynn Worton

Book Review of Chiromancist (Seven Forbidden Arts Book 8) by Charmaine Pauls
Chiromancist - Charmaine Pauls

Bono Black is not part of Cain Jones’s taskforce. He’s merely their pilot. The minute he walks into a sex club in Amsterdam, he is no longer an outsider to the war on their beautiful target, Sky Val. Bono wants her like he’s never wanted anyone, and he’s a determined man. The only snags are three major obstacles. One, Sky belongs to the most dangerous sex dealer in the Netherlands who’d see her dead before he lets her go. Two, she’s undeniably involved in the murders of a senator and president. Three, Cain has ordered her dead. But time is on Bono’s side. Before the team leader slits her throat, they need information on her boss. With the interest Sky has shown in Bono, Cain decides Bono is just the man for the job, and that seduction will be his choice of arms.


Life has never been good or kind. From where Sky Val is standing, life looks infinitely bad. Her existence is nothing but physical and emotional torture, but one motivation keeps her going. It is a secret she can’t give up on. Bought at the age of sixteen for her forbidden art to manipulate time, Sky’s owner constructed the perfect jail to confine her. The invisible chains he put on her are much more effective than a brick and mortar prison. She will do anything her owner or his boss demands, even make the handsome, caring Senegalese pilot, Bono Black fall in love with her. Love is, after all, a woman’s best weapon when her mission is to steal a man’s secrets.


Every wise person knows things aren’t always what they seem, but the truth becomes muddled in a war where the good guys suddenly seem bad, and the devil like a savior. In an upside-down world full of dangerous secrets and supernatural powers, many hearts will be broken, but only one team can win. Which one of them will walk away with their secrets and life intact?


* This is Book 8 of the Seven Forbidden Arts paranormal erotic series, but also reads as a standalone. The story contains explicit language and consummated love scenes. Recommended for an audience of 18+.


Review 5*


This is the eighth book in the Seven Forbidden Arts Series. I loved it!


Bono Black is a wonderful character. I really liked him when I was first introduced to him earlier in the series, but never really knew much about him, so I am glad to get a chance to do so now. He is not a practitioner of one of the forbidden arts, but a pilot in the employ of Josselin de Arradon (Joss to his friends) and Cain Jones. The team is still in pursuit of their nemesis, Godfrey. Their lead takes them to Amsterdam, where a powerful Chiromancist is hiding in plain sight. As Bono is the only human in the team, he finds himself going undercover. He finds himself drawn to Sky Val. As danger threatens, can he discover Godfrey's whereabouts and save the woman he has come to love?


Sky Val is also a wonderful character. I must admit that I felt really sorry for her as she has not had an easy life. She is a Chiromancist, and is able to use her power to either see into the past, as well as into the future. Sold into slavery, she works for her owner, a sex dealer, by using her art to tell the fortunes of his clients. When she meets Bono she is drawn to him, but she has a secret that binds her tighter than any physical tie to her boss. Can she break the shackles of the past and find a future with the Senegalese pilot?


This story is told mostly through the eyes of Bono and Sky, though there are a couple of scenes told through the eyes of other characters. I enjoyed getting to see the other characters from the team once more. This book is set several months after the events in book seven and it had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I said in my review of Scapulimancist that I thought it was the best of the series so far. I have now had to revise it to this book instead. It kept me hooked from the first page.


I found myself on a huge emotional roller coaster ride as Sky's past was revealed. I know that there is still slavery in the world (sex trafficking and other types), but have never really given it much thought apart from feeling sorry for those caught up in it and not knowing what I could do to help. However, I found myself unable to shake off the emotions this story stirred up in me that easily. Sky's story is not even unique (sadly), but the way the author wrote about it pulled at my heartstrings. Slavery may have been banned by law but it is still practiced today, though not as blatantly in the open as in the past. Unfortunately, wherever there is greed and money involved, the demand for this type of underground activity (be it slavery or even the ivory trade) will never diminish. This depravity sickens me and needs to be stopped. I am glad the author has given a voice to at least one victim (though fictitious) to shine a light on a dark practice and I commend her for it.


The story arc is reaching its climax, and I reached the end of the story with mixed feelings - sad that it was finished, but happy at the way it concluded. At the end of the book there is a teaser for the ninth and final book in the series and I am now looking forward to reading it as soon as I can. I must admit that once this series is over I will miss it, as the characters have become like friends to me.


Charmaine Pauls has written an entertaining standalone erotic romance. Her characters are lifelike and come alive on the page. I love her fast paced writing style and the flow is wonderful. I would definitely consider reading more of her books in the future.


Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend that you read this series in order. Due to the explicit nature of some of the scenes, as well as use of profane language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 18. I do, however, recommend this book if you love science fiction, erotica, erotic romance or paranormal romance genres. – Lynn Worton

Audio/Book Review of Catch Me If You Can by Miss Mae
Catch Me If You Can - Miss Mae

On an island bordering the coast of South Carolina, a convention is planned for "Catch Me" game enthusiasts. The game, designed by Stuart Harrington, wealthy businessman, is the genius behind the hottest game craze. But only ten guests are able to arrive before Brian, a category four hurricane, makes landfall. Lois Steinberg washes ashore on the beach. Amongst strangers, she has no idea who to trust and when Paul, the cook, is found murdered, events happen too eerily reminiscent of any "Catch Me" game that Stuart Harrington could ever conceive.


Review 4*


I originally read a kindle version of this book a year ago. Since then, the audio book has been released and, when I heard the sample, I decided to download it. This is a new review to incorporate the audiobook format.


This is an interesting dramatization of the story. This is a fully immersive experience, with sound effects and music used in such a way that felt like throw back to the old radio dramatizations/plays. My only complaint about this version of story is that the wind sound effect, although used to great affect, annoyed the heck out of me. Granted, you can't have a storm/hurricane without wind, but I felt that it drowned out some of the dialogue. I am also used to listening to audiobooks narrated by one or two performers. However, this story had a whole ensemble cast. I did think that the actors used to play the various characters did a wonderful job in bringing the story to life and they need to be commended.


This is a wonderful murder mystery. I really enjoyed it!


Lois Steinberg is a wonderful character. I really liked her. Washed ashore on Hanibel Island, off the coast of South Carolina during a storm, she finds herself in danger; a convention for a "Catch Me" game turns deadly. As the intensity of the storm increases, the danger increases too. Trapped and afraid, she will have to keep her wits about her to survive. Not sure whom to trust, she finds herself fighting her attraction to Victor, a man with his own secrets.


This is a fantastic murder mystery. The intensity of the tale is kept all the way through. Ten strangers (or are they?) are trapped in Wycliff House Resort during a category four hurricane. When one of their number is murdered, everyone becomes suspect.

I found myself hooked by the story and it kept me intrigued. I enjoyed meeting Victor Helm and his dog, Mite, though I felt that Victor's character could have had a little more depth. All of the other characters have their own quirks and secrets. Jenna Milford is the owner/manager of Wycliff House. Paul is her cook. Jared Steele is one of the guests, as is Tia, B.J., Cookie, Rajah Singh, Bob, Victor and Pete.


I must admit that when I originally read this book, I had no idea who the murderer was even up until the end. After listening to the audiobook, even though I knew who the culprit was, I still found myself engrossed in the story. There are red herrings, twists and surprises in store. When I originally found out who the murderer was, I was completely taken aback. I never expected that. I am normally pretty good at ferreting out the culprit, but not this time. This made the ending exciting. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't work out who the murderer was, but it wouldn't be a good murder mystery if I had (I think).


Miss Mae has written a wonderful murder mystery. I love her fast paced writing style and the flow was wonderful. I am a huge fan of mystery novels, and one of my favourite authors in this genre is Agatha Christie. However, Miss Mae is an author that I will be keeping an eye on in the future.


I highly recommend this book to readers who love murder mysteries and suspense or classic who-dun-its and dramatizations and are looking for a highly entertaining read. - Lynn Worton
