Break Out
Break Out - Nina Croft

Rico is a vampire, born/made in the 15th century. This takes place in 3048, Earth is no more (doesn't say why) and mankind has taken to space. That also means genetic engineering and the discovery of Meridian. Meridian is an expensive mineral that has the ability to make a person immortal. As the series continues, I'm assuming I will learn more about it. Skylar makes Rico and his crew an offer they can't refuse. Skylar has her own secrets.
This was fun. I enjoyed the interactions of the crew of the El Cazador: Tannis, Daisy, Janey, Trog, and Al. Decent action, romance, and banter. Reminded me a little of Firefly. Looking forward to the next. It looks like it picks right up after this one, but with Al and Jon.

Bittersweet Darkness - Nina Croft
This is the third book in The Order series. Although it tells the story of a different couple, it would be advisable if you read the previous books before venturing into this instalment. In doing so, you will gain background information on the supporting cast featured in this instalment and learn about the inside operations of The Order of Shadow Accords.
 
I read the firsts two books awhile back. I received this book for review but never got around to reading it before now. I thought I would have problems getting into the story due the time I took to pick up this book. Fortunately, this was not the case.  As I delved into the story, I remembered events from the previous books, which made it easy for me to be immersed in the book.
 
My Perspective
 
The Story.
If you love fast-paced, suspenseful action packed and sexy paranormal stories, then you will love this book.  Based on my experience with the previous books in the series, I had high expectations for this instalment. I was not disappointed.  This is not your typical paranormal romance. Yes, you will encounter the usual supernatural beings you find in this genre, but it so much more than that. It is a story of betrayal, redemption, second chances, forgiveness, healing and love.
 
This story introduces readers to a world where some supernatural beings, who make up the Order of Shadow Accords, are trying to create a world where they can co-exist with humans. However, other beings are not so keen on the idea and are willing to use any method possible to prevent the Order from achieving its goal. The Order is the police for the supernatural world, who metes out punishment to those beings who bring attention to themselves.
 
The suspenseful thread involves a group of people trying to bring down The Order by targeting the Christian Roth, a billionaire vampire one of the head honchos of The Order. This aspect of the story was entertaining and captivating.  I liked that it did not overshadow the romance between Faith and Ash. In fact, both threads blended well to make for an exciting read.
 
The romance is not typical of what I generally see in this genre. This was not a case of the hero claiming the heroine as his from the moment he lays eyes on her. This was a case of instant attraction, which slowly grew into love.  It also had its share of obstacles from both parties and external sources.
 
The Main Characters.
 
If you are a fan of heroines who are tough, self-reliant, sassy and tenacious then you will love Faith.  She is human and does not believe there are supernatural beings walking the earth.  When approached by a mysterious group to help them in their quest to take down Christian Roth. She thought it ludicrous and not intended to accept their offer. However, due to circumstances beyond her control, she ended up working for this mysterious group.
 
 She has difficulty accepting the truth, even with the
evidence presented to her.  She saw things as being black and white. You are either good or evil, there is no in between.   This belief stemmed from an incident, which happened in her past to which she is yet to receive closure. However, she would soon come to realise that things were not as simple as she was led to believe.
 
When I met Ash in the previous book, I did not like him. I thought he was evil; after all, he is a demon. Well, in this instalment I discovered that there was more to him than I originally thought. He had a caring side which, he demonstrated by his actions towards his daughter, (who by the way hates him) and Faith. He had been on a quest for revenge, but his love for his daughter took precedence.  He knew what it meant to be in love, but he thought those feelings were dead and buried, until that moment when Faith brought it back to life.
 
I loved how protective he was of Faith, even when he believed she had betrayed him and the other members of The Order.  Watching him care her when she experienced here headaches was heart-warming and sweet. His reaction when he thought he was going to lose her was heart-breaking. I felt his pain throughout the ordeal. Who would believe the demon of lust had it in him to care about anyone but himself. 
 
Conclusion
I appreciated how things worked out in the end as it relates to Ash’s relationship with his daughter and Faith. I was glad to see Faith finally getting the closure she craved in regards to the incident from her past. The ending was appropriate and nicely done.  I do hope that the author will continue the series as there are characters who I would love to see them get their stories.
 
Recommendation
Fans of paranormal romance and strong sexy characters will enjoy Bittersweet Darkness.

ARC Review and Goodreads Giveaway: Blackmailing the Bad Girl by Nina Croft
Blackmailing the Bad Girl - Nina Croft

Set in England, billionaire Nik Masterton is out to get the woman that took not only his money but also a piece of his heart. Summer Delaney has learned her lesson and promises to lead a better. Unfortunately the man she stole from wants has re-entered her life and it appears the new life she envisioned will have to wait.

This was a sweet and charming, yet totally hot and sexy second chance story. I loved the way Nik and Summer got to get reacquainted with each other because even though they got really, really close *wink wink* to get each other out of the other’s system –you can imagine how well that worked- they took their sweet time to start with the actual “romance.” They were both funny, witty, hard-headed, and protective of family and friends. Loved the chemistry and the dynamic they each had with secondary characters. I haven't read the first one in the series but I will soon remedy that and of course I'll continue the series and will read more by this author.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Blackmailing the Bad Girl
Blackmailing the Bad Girl - Nina Croft Blackmail, revenge and lust collide in Nina Croft's, Blackmailing the Bad Girl. Nina Croft is well - versed at writing equal opportunity stories. She's so good at it, it's difficult to identify the protagonist from the antagonist at times. Summer is looking for redemption, Nik wants revenge, who will be the one left standing at the end of this battle of wills? Summer and Nik generate an abundance of fire, while freeing their hearts along the way. Smart, sexy, sensational read.
