Tempest Rising by Julie Kenner
Tempest Rising: Episode 1 (Rising Storm) - J. Kenner,Dee Davis,Julie Kenner,Julie Kenner

This book was such a guilty pleasure read. There's no romance, there's no real ending, but it's everything dramatic in the world that is entertaining. It reminds me of soap operas - which is exactly what the series promised it would do.

Starting the with car accident that kills a beloved local boy and the events that follow, I was drawn in quickly and didn't come up until the episode was over. An incredibly fast read, but full of juicy stories. I'm not even sure where to start with it all. 

I'm interested to see how the story holds up with multiple authors writing about the same characters. It looks like each book has a slightly different focus, but in such a small town, the main characters look like they pop up in each book. I can't wait to see what happens in episode two.

Tempest Rising: Episode 1 (Rising Storm) - J. Kenner,Dee Davis,Julie Kenner,Julie Kenner














Release Date:  September 24, 2015





Secrets, Sex and Scandals …

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy… Get ready. The storm is coming.

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Ginny Moreno didn’t mean to do it, but when she came home to Storm, she brought the tempest with her. And now everyone will be caught in its fury…

Tempest Rising (Rising Storm, Episode 1)Tempest Rising by Julie Kenner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the time I learned of this series there was no doubt in my mind that I had to check it out. I am only into the first book and hooked already. This is a series that keeps you guessing. Full of secrets, surprising revelations and sensational storylines, Tempest Rising is a definite winner. Anytime the first installment starts with a shocking twist there is no choice but to stay tuned. Will be front and center for episode 2. Received an ARC of Tempest Rising: Episode 1 by Julie Kenner in exchange for an honest review. An exciting idea fueled by wonderful writers.

Tempest Rising: Episode 1 (Rising Storm)
Tempest Rising: Episode 1 (Rising Storm) - J. Kenner,Dee Davis,Julie Kenner,Julie Kenner Reading this book took me right back to high school and watching soap operas (All my children, General Hospital, etc). It is chock full of characters and they all have secrets! Cheating, lying, deception, and more abound in this short novella. You do have to read these in order so make sure you start with this one! Each week the next book releases making it feel even more like a television show! I really enjoyed it. It took about an hour to read (again, like a TV show!)

Seal the Deal (1Night Stand Series) - JoAnne Kenrick

A little time by the sea would be great. I wouldn't mind frolicking with a selkie.


Selkies are Gaelic mythological creatures (though simlar stories are told in Iceland). They live in the ocean as seals but on land as human.  


Enjoy this Selkie Themed Romances! My lists are never in any particular order.


1. A Well Favored Gentleman by Christina Dodd


Where has she been? The rumors fly throughout the Scottish countryside about Lady Alanna, the beautiful and mysterious displaced mistress of Fionnaway Manor. And now she has emerged from hiding, only to find her beloved estate besieged by greedy relatives. . .and coveted by a darkly handsome Englishman.


Ian Fairchild knows that Fionnaway belongs to him alone. For years he yearned for the cherished place where he passed his childhood. He can secure his rights to the manor only through marriage with the enigmatic Alanna, but the exquisite hellion has warned him at knifepoint to leave her house. 


Now with skill and charm, Ian must penetrate the lady's defenses, and boldly lay claim to her body and spirit. But first he must prove himself worthy, and he holds the power to enchant and delight, inflame and inspire. . .and to convince this lady her true home is in her lover's heart


2. He Said, Sidhe Said by Tanya Huff

In these seven contemporary fantasies from Tanya Huff, we see a dog's eye view of loyalty and a cat's eye view of sea serpents. We learn that some Brownies could use a shave – although cookies will still be sold – and that there are at least two sides to every relationship, no matter how accidental and/or mythical that relationship is. We're also reminded that however worthwhile it may be to die with purpose, it's better to live well.  Huff's ability to leaven heartache with humour – and vise versa – gives this collection of previously published stories an unexpected emotional variety.


3. The Shadow of Mist by Yasmine Galenorn


It’s been more than a century since Siobhan Morgan fled Ireland to start a new life in America. As a selkie, she kept much of her life a secret, even from her good friends the D’Artigo sisters. But now a dark presence from her past has found its way across the ocean, in the form of a man obsessed with possessing her. With the D’Artigo sisters’ help, Siobhan must stop him before he destroys everything she loves.


4. Sea Witch by Virginia Kantra


Margred is a Selkie—a legendary being of the sea, able to shapeshift into seductive human form. And she has found a human she desires...

Burned out from the big city, Caleb Hunter becomes police chief on the peaceful Maine island of World’s End. Then he meets a woman who’s everything he’s ever dreamed of…

Their passion is undeniable, irresistible—and it may change the fate of humankind.


5. Love Struck by Melissa Marr


Alana knows the legends of selchies, the sea-fey who leave their seal-like pelts behind when they walk on land, passing for humans. But she never imagined she would meet one—let alone two—on the night of an otherwise forgettable beach party. 


The selchie Murrin, though, has long imagined actually meeting Alana, the girl he has chosen over the sea. He never expected that the meeting would be so complicated, or that an old rivalry would make winning Alana's trust—and love—so difficult.


6. The Selkie Bride by Melanie Jackson


Recently widowed, Megan Culbin has inherited more than just a quaint cottage on the Scottish coast; she has inherited the ire of an ancient monster—and the protection of a virile selkie warrior.


7. Selkie's Revenge by Rosanna Leo


When a heartbroken, lonely widow is saved by an equally heartbroken, mysterious man, their lives are changed forever. But evil stalks the beaches of Orkney. Before their long-buried emotions can take flight, they have to save themselves from a monster with no soul. The pages burn with passion in Book 2 of Rosanna Leo’s hot, fantasy series, Orkney Selkies. 

On the beaches of Orkney, Scotland, an evil entity stalks mortal women. Machar “Mack” Kirk is a selkie man with a haunted past, one that has prompted him to become a hunter. He prowls the beaches at night, his arrows aiming for the finman who took his first love. 

Beth Pedersen also watches the sea. The haunted widow has suffered losses of her own, ones that have crippled her into a state of stony grief. Beth can no longer feel, can no longer see color and life. Until the day Mack Kirk saves her from a mysterious foe, flooding her world with brightness and foreign temptation. 

As Mack and Beth fight their growing passion, the finman escalates his attacks. Before long, Mack realizes he’s not just playing Good Samaritan. He wants Beth, too, and will do anything to ensure his lover isn’t taken by the finman. But can he protect his mate from a monster with no soul? 


8. Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler


Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn't quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human. 

Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new "friend," Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire. 

It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie's lamp. 


9. The Keepers: Christmas in Salem by Heather Graham, Deborah LeblancKathleen Pickering, and Beth Ciotta 


Christmas is coming to Salem, but so is an evil force that threatens all mankind. In this memorable collection led by New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham, four powerful Keepers must save their community as a strange, eternal night creeps over the town. Forced to choose between their time-honored responsibilities or the lovers their hearts desire, these four extraordinary women must risk their own happiness to save the holiday. But Christmas is a time for miracles, and as each Keeper's greatest longing is met, the Season of Light returns.


10. Seal the Deal by JoAnne Kenrick


After being ditched at the altar, Finn Kneale isolates himself at Port St. Mary's magnificent lighthouse. A violent storm ravishes the coastline, pitching the maritime tower into the Irish sea and transforming Finn into a seal. Carefree at first, he soon longs to walk as a man again. When leap year arrives, bathing land and sea in magic, Finn temporarily regains his human form. If he can't find his soul mate in twenty-four hours, he'll be back to cavorting among the waves.

Anne Ward--resident midwife and newcomer to Port St. Mary, Isle of Man--guards some wild secrets of her own while avoiding entanglements with married doctors. A believer in fate, she seeks out Madame Eve's exclusive agency to help find her destined mate.
