Rescuing The Virgin (The McKenna Legacy) - Patricia Rosemoor

When it comes to love, his grandmother’s legacy hasn’t worked for Quinlan McKenna Farrell as it has for his siblings and cousins. Working as an ICE agent shows him the darker side of human nature. He’s haunted by his failure to bring down a human trafficking ring in Texas. Then he meets Luz Delgado, sold to Quin as a virgin. He soon learns she’s an American in desperate straits, needing to be free of the ring and to save her brother. As she gets to know Quin, she realizes he can not only read people but communicate with animals that give him their trust—both abilities inherited from his grandmother. Quin tries to protect Luz, but she’s determined to help him bring down the human trafficking operation. And when she goes missing, a panicked Quin realizes Luz is his grandmother’s love legacy for him.

This was a pretty good book. I’ve read a number of this author’s paranormal books and loved each of them. I was glad that her (primarily) contemporary didn’t disappoint as has happened with other authors. I really liked Quin and Luz as Quin works to unravel everything. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Great Story and Characters
Animal Attraction - Patricia Rosemoor

Detective Ethan Grainger gave his new partner a distinctive stare. Isabelle was his new partner after losing the best partner he ever had- Shade. Ethan recognized the murdered victim- Alderman DeAndre Booker.from the West side, Ethan wondered what Booker was doing so far from home. The man wasn’t dressed for a  night out at one of the clubs. Booker was also elected Vice Mayor by the city council. Booker had spent the last couple years working on getting jobs for inter city kids instead of them turning to gangs. Ethan was anxious to leave so that he could find Luc and get the man’s thoughts on the new but familiar murder. Ethan took some photos at the scene . especially of the body, of the dead mans face and ripped out throat. Than he pulled out his notebook and took notes. He got everything he could from the forensic findings, everything the officers on duty had gathered from the crowd or the other side of the crime scene tapes. Isabelle said she would call the Lakeside Zoo and see if any wolves or big animals were missing. Coyotes were not the only thing that worked for Cezar Lazare he had plenty of big cats including his family which were panther shifters. No one in Chicago PD new about the Kindred which were animal shifters. Or the true nature of their casino. Not unless you were invited to the lower deck where you could lose your soul to Lazare. The lower deck was cloaked by magic to the unsuspecting . As much as he hated the Ark he needed to go. Lazare did influence local politicians. Ethan had been avoiding shape shifting Kindred. Avoiding direct contact with Lazare’s daughter who had been Shade’s woman and was carrying Shade’s child now. Despite his vow to Shade he would make sure she and the baby were alright but Nuala blamed Ethan for Shades death. Ethan would like to forget her kind. Yet Ethan found himself attracted to Nuala. He’d checked on her through Shade;s twin Skye. Luc was Nuala’s half brother. Luc had help find the monster who had killed Shade as he was protecting Luc’s mom Elizabeth who had raised Luc human. There were shifter fights still going on even after Lazarre had promised Skye he would stop them? Skye was all about stopping the fights and taking care of the injured animals. Nuala time with Shade had been life altering . He’d shown her there was a different way to live. Ethan loved Shade like a brother. Him being murdered like Ethan’s real brother a decade ago losing SHade the same way had torn open wounds that never healed. Ethan had unresolved and highly inappropriate feelings for Nuala. Luc was the head of security for The Ark. Luc said he would put out feelers for anyone who had a problem with Alderman Booker. Ethan didn’t like Kindred or the operation at The Ark. Ethan’s failure to find his brother Mike’s killer still haunts him ten years later. Nuala decided to to move to Shade’s apartment after talking with Ethan about a different way of Maeve being raised and in a different place. Shade had been killed when he went to Elizabeth  to ask some questions- Luc’s mom- and is killed saving her life. Nuala was very attracted to Ethan and when he kissed her she kissed him back during that kiss he ingested some of Nuala’s blood and could w hear Kindred’s thoughts. Than when he pulled back Nuala hit him.

I loved this book What a different take on shifters giving up their souls and taking human souls. But I do like the old shifter books but till loved this one as it was a great story. I loved how Nic was basically surly and quiet but he loved his sister Nuala and would do anything to keep her safe. I loved Nuala and Ethan together and how they interacted together. I also loved how Cezar was the loving parent this time and the mother could basically care less about her children and was all about hre things/ That was a change. I loved the pace and plot of this book.  I loved Ethan was willing to do anything to save Nuala and Maeve. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend it.

Release Week Review! In Name Only (The McKenna Legacy #8) Patricia Rosemoor!
In Name Only - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Myth has it that Caillech lives in the cabochons of her jewels and takes revenge on anyone who wears what is hers—the reason the owner hired jewelry designer Flanna McKenna to make copies. Even so, the woman was murdered and the jewels disappeared. Michael Eagan is hired to catch a thief—possibly Flanna herself if her late client’s son is believed. Flanna agrees to Michael’s idea of a mock marriage as they set out to seek a Traveler who may be the real thief. What starts as an arrangement soon turns into something hotter, but Flanna knows finding the jewels before Beltane is critical, for if any woman wears the jewels on that magic night, Caillech will free herself and return to corporeal form with the power of the sorceress...

 


In Name Only” is a delightfully mysterious addition to “The McKenna Legacy” series that pulls readers in and refuses to let go.

 

Flanna McKenna’s client has been murdered and the cursed jewelry has been stolen and some are blaming Flanna for the theft but with time running out, Flanna joins forces with Michael Eagan, a PI hired to catch the jewel thief, in order to catch the real thief and stop an evil sorceress from reawakening.

 

These two strong, bewitching characters easily draw readers into their story as their arrangement gets hotter but the relationship stays on a rocky slope with lots of emotional turmoil due to secrets, legacies, curses and pressure as they run out of time to catch the thief. Michael and Flanna’s romance may be rocky, but the sizzling attraction burns hotter with every turn on of the page.

 

Suspense and spine chilling mystery keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat throughout this fast paced plot full of intrigue, betrayals and a bit of the paranormal with curses and a sorceress trying to rise through cursed jewelry. The readers can’t help but become caught up in the chase as Michael and Flanna pretend to be married while looking for thief especially as the author paints such vivid imagery with her well written scenes that readers can easily picture the scenery and feel the atmosphere of the story.

 

The McKenna Legacy” series is a wonderful variety of stories as each one presents readers with passionate romances and wonderful characters with each story having its own unique elements but centered on a magical legacy that adds a bit of wonder and flair to the story.

Excerpt:
“Flanna McKenna, wait a moment.”
Pulse thudding, she stopped and demanded, “And what is it you would be wanting?”
“To talk. About your work for Bridget Rafferty.”
“Unless you represent the authorities, which I doubt with that accent—” he was obviously an American “—I have nothing to say to you.” How would a complete stranger from another land know about her work?
“Michael Eagan, Beacon Hill Investigations.” He flipped open his identification. “It seems your Mrs. Rafferty was the third murder connected to the theft of antique Celtic jewelry in the last month, the first having been in Boston.”
“The third?” Flanna’s mind whirled. “Of course, the other pieces…”
“So you do know something about the murders.”
The way he said it put up Flanna’s back. Another person who thought she was guilty of something? Though she wanted in the worst way to tell him to leave, she couldn’t do it just yet, not until she got the details. She’d not only experienced bad vibes from the pieces she’d replicated, but she’d also had visions of several historical deaths connected to the collection, as well.
She hesitated too long. The front door flew open and there was her mother coming at them, pushing the silver-streaked dark hair from her still pretty face, which was lit by a big welcoming smile.
“You didn’t say a thing about bringing a date, Flanna,” Delia McKenna said, giving her daughter a hug and kiss on the cheek. “And isn’t he a handsome boyo.”
“Ma, please—”
Michael smiled in return and a dimple popped in his right cheek. “Why, thank you, Mrs. McKenna.”
“An American, is it?”
“Irish-American. Michael Eagan. I can see where your daughter gets her beauty.”
Flanna gaped as the private investigator turned on the charm and took her mother’s hand. Her mother actually giggled.
“We’ll be so pleased to have you as our guest.”
“Give us a minute,” Flanna said, biting the inside of her cheek when her mother raised her eyebrows and smiled before retreating to the house. She counted silently to three, then faced Michael. “What do you think you’re doing?”
“Trying to be pleasant to your mother.”
“Now she thinks you and I are—are—”
“Lovers?”
“I was going to say together!”
“You have a problem with intimacy?” One dark eyebrow shot up in challenge.
“I have a problem with you. Perhaps you should leave now and we can meet back in town later.”
“You realize if I don’t come inside with you, you’ll have to explain why.”
He had a point.

Release Week Review! Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy #6) Patricia Rosemoor!
Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy) - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Rancher Neil McKenna Farrell has none of the psychic gifts his sister and cousins had inherited. But when he meets Annabeth Caldwell, a worker at the Chicago rodeo where he’s competing, he “sees” her in grave danger! Then he and Annabeth are taken hostage in a robbery attempt, and she’s nearly killed. He’d inherited the McKenna legacy, after all.


When Annabeth becomes entangled in something sinister, Neil has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth falls under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and a love that would last a lifetime.

 


Neil McKenna is a rancher who discovers that he has the inherited the McKenna Legacy after all when “sees” danger facing Annabeth and he has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth Caldwell is just trying to make ends meet by working at the Chicago rodeo when she becomes entangled in something sinister and falling under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and an everlasting love.

 

This delightfully sweet and thrilling romance brings readers enjoyment by combining a suspense, cowboys and a touch of the supernatural with romance. Neil and Annabeth are strong characters that captivate readers with their ‘avoid the relationship’ romance that has lots of emotional turbulence and readers can easily relate to and understand where the characters are coming from while they reach for their happily ever after.

 

The story progresses at a steady to fast pace and keeps readers glued to the pages with the intrigue of not only the romance but with the danger that Annabeth is facing and when the couple work toward keeping Annabeth safe, readers become more entangled with the mystery of who done it as surprising twists keep them guessing.

 

This is only the second story that I have read in the McKenna Legacy series but so far I am quite intrigued with all the McKenna characters and the fascinating Legacy that has each one finding true love while amongst danger and intrigue, so I will continue to catch up with this series.

Return to Jenkins Cove by Rebecca York, Ann Voss Peterson & Patricia Rosemoor
Christmas Spirit (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Rebecca York
Christmas Awakening (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Ann Voss Peterson
Christmas Delivery (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Patricia Rosemoor

***copies provided by publisher through NetGalley***

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT by Rebecca York
Chelsea Caldwell is right back where she started, seeing ghosts and being the talk of the town. Yet there's something sinister happening in the small town of Jenkins Cove, and Chelsea might just be the person to uncover it.


It felt like this book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. Romantic suspense, paranormal romance? Each separate classification would've worked, unfortunately, mixed together created an unfortunate mess.

The characters were bland and dull, the plot got lost in the suspense/paranormal/killer/ghosts mess, and the romance left me utterly cold.


CHRISTMAS AWAKENING by Ann Voss Peterson
After ten years, Marie Leonard is back in Jenkins Cove determined to discover why her father's been murdered...But she'll have to deal with skepticism by the local chief of police, the man who broke her heard ten years ago, and a killer determined to silence her forever.


Though this one also had some paranormal elements, it was a much more straightforward romantic suspense story than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the suspense aspect was the only thing I enjoyed about this one, even though the villain's motive left much to be desired.
The characters were bland (the hero was a self-pitying fool and I simply couldn't stand his moaning toward the end), and the romance tepid.


CHRISTMAS DELIVERY by Patricia Rosemoor
Lexi thought Simon, the father of her preteen daughter, dead for thirteen years, but instead of dead, he's merely been through hell, thanks to human traffickers operating in the small town of Jenkins Cove.
But now, Simon is back, determined to make whoever the culprit is pay...


This second-chance quasi-romance left me utterly cold. The characters were dull and bland, I didn't care about their relationship in the past (since we never got to see it) or in the now (because they simply weren't that compatible).

The main suspense arc of this "series" was never that interesting, so the resolution (rather predictable in all ways) didn't bring much satisfaction.
