New Release Review! Christmas Delivery (Return to Jenkins Cove # 3) Patricia Rosemoor
The Wolf's Joy - Holley Trent

 

 

 

Christmas… Ghosts… Mystery… Romance… 
Something evil lurks in the charming town of Jenkins Cove. When Sophie Caldwell devotes a room in her B&B to communicate with spirits, dangerous secrets rise to the surface, and the lives of three couples will never be the same. 

Christmas Delivery (Return to Jenkins Cove Book 3) 
Haunted by ghosts, Jenkins Cove will now have to deal with Simon Shea who has “returned from the dead” seeking revenge...only to reconnect with Lexie Thornton, the girl he loved, and the daughter they conceived thirteen years ago. 

Christmas Spirit ...Christmas Awakening ...Christmas Delivery 
Each of these stories are complete novels, but only the full series will get to the bottom of all the ghostly happenings in Jenkins Cove. Be sure to read them all! 

 

 

Excerpt from Christmas Delivery: 

The fog was lighter here, the chill greater, and once past the fence’s wooden gate, which had been left open, Simon realized where he was. 

The cemetery. 

Why had the spirit brought him here? 

Following the curving redbrick path lined by boxwood on both sides, Simon kept track of the mop of pale hair, which appeared on the other side of the hedge, then lost him altogether. When he came to the open area dotted with gravestones and markers, Simon only half hoped he would actually find him again. He gazed around, past a couple of large willow oaks and a magnolia tree in the center of the graveyard, then spotted the ghostly figure at a far gravesite, touching the stone that identified its occupant. 

Again, he looked up with hollow eyes and gestured that he should come. 

Reluctantly, Simon did. Not wanting to cross anyone’s grave — he’d had enough of that in his former life — he stayed on the brick path, keeping his gaze locked on the figure still summoning him. 

One minute the fog seemed to circle the kid, the next he seemed to fade away into the mists. 

“Wait! Don’t go!” 

But the demand came too late. He was already gone. And Simon was moving to the headstone he’d touched, had obviously wanted Simon to see. 

A deep, arctic cold suddenly surrounded Simon and then the breath was knocked out of him as he stopped in the spot where the wraith had disappeared. Looking down, Simon understood why Lexie believed he was dead and buried. The headstone bore his name and the dates of his birth and of his supposed death on Christmas Eve thirteen years before. 

Not a man who easily believed in what he couldn’t see, Simon had no doubts about who had led him here. Or who was buried in his grave. He was certain the kid he’d seen shot had taken his place. 

Thirteen years ago and his ghost still wandered, unable to rest, Simon thought. 

How many ghosts inhabited this area? 

How many souls were denied eternal rest? 

Of one thing he was certain. The boy he’d seen shot had been buried in his stead. How had they pulled that one off? They looked nothing alike. A closed coffin, then? How had he supposedly died so that no one would have raised the alarm? Who had been in on his supposed death? 

More questions that needed answering. 

Another reason for him to stay undercover awhile. So he could find the answers. 

Did ghosts seek retribution? He wondered. 

Considering the evil that had stalked the town unchecked, probably not. 

But now the town had to deal with him.

 

 

 

 

Jenkins Cove is once again the setting for a chilling mystery and a wonderful second chance romance during the holiday season.

 

 

Simon and Lexie are spirited characters with lots of emotional angst that has readers empathizing with the characters and hoping for that happily ever after for this couple. Their story draws readers in from the very beginning and keeps them glued to the pages as the romance and mystery unfold. Overcoming the past is an obstacle that most everyone can identify with and reaching for the future is something everyone should definitely reach for and this story brings those two together with a bit of mystery and holiday cheer which makes this one enjoyable read. One that can be enjoyed while reading by the fire or while preparing for their own family holiday traditions.

 

There is never a dull moment as Simon and Lexie try to keep everyone safe while solving the mystery of what happened to force Simon away and to spice things up even more Simon receives help from a few ghosts along the way. While the book can be read as a standalone story, the overall questions and trouble that take place in Jenkins Cove are finally answered so really you should read all three to get the full enjoyment out of your visit to Jenkins Cove.

 

 

Christmas Delivery is the 3rd book in the Return to Jenkins Cove series previously known as A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove.

 

The first book is Christmas Spirit by Rebecca York

Michael and Chelsea both are engaging characters that draw readers in with their holiday romance as both have to suspend their disbeliefs in order to push forward with their relationship. This keeps readers engrossed as they empathize with the characters while becoming caught up in the mysterious happenings that tests the couple’s beliefs.

 

 The suspense builds as Chelsea and Michael try to figure out why someone is after them and what the ghosts are trying to tell them. This keeps the anticipation building as the reader tries to determine the outcome as well and I have to tell you that it was I didn’t see coming. The story is well written and the characters are developed which made it easy to feel as if I was part of the town and I shivered with delightful chills with each ghost visitation.

The second book is Christmas Awakening, by Ann Voss Peterson
When Marie Leonard returns to Jenkins Cove for her father’s funeral, she never expects to rekindle her romance with billionaire recluse Brandon Drake…nor to be haunted by the ghost of his dead wife.

A sharp novel, both in action and in style, with fabulous dialogue and a flawed hero you’ll love
In Wolves' Clothing - Greg Levin

Thanks to Rosie Amber from Rosie’s Book Review Team (authors, check here if you would like your books reviewed) and to the author for providing me with a copy of the book that I freely chose to review.

Zero Slade is the narrator of this story that packs plenty of action, violence, and darkness in under three hundred pages. He is a flawed hero or even an anti-hero. He drinks too much, he takes prescription painkillers (of course, no longer prescribed, although there’s little doubt that he is in pain); he loves his wife but lies to her and cannot share his feelings; he is good at his job but is falling into a downward spiral where he makes mistakes, often makes the wrong decisions and gets himself and others into trouble. He is a master of witty retorts (although these seem to take the form of a mental commentary rather than things he tells people, as he pretends, both for professional and for personal reasons to be calm, collected, and not easily fazed), and dark-humour and a cynical point-of-view are second-nature to him. His style of internal dialogue reminded me of noir-novels and of the voice-over narrations used by film-noir detectives of the thirties and forties. He is big, strong, and, in appearance at least, tough. And he needs to be, to do the job he does.

The book’s subject is horrific, and although the novel does not go into a lot of detail about sex trafficking, it does highlight the reality of it, the terrible statistics, and the experiences of the young girls and of those who try to help them, often with little long-term success. Doing such a job requires special qualities and takes a toll on all those involved. Zero reflects on the motley crew he works with early on in the novel and when we meet the new recruit he is supposed to train, Caleb, we wonder what he has in common with the rest and how he came to be there. He seems too together. A Buddhist who always sees the positive side of every situation. Of course, things are not always what they seem, and Zero is not the only one keeping secrets.

Coping with such extreme experiences is not easy. Zero’s first-person narration allows the reader to get inside his head and share his techniques to try and avoid getting emotionally involved and overwhelmed by what he sees. His drinking, his drug abuse, and his defence mechanisms and strategies all point to the fact that rather than being hard, tough, and unfeeling, he is trying to protect himself because otherwise, he’d crack.

We don’t get to know all of the secondary characters well (the book is short, but we do get a good sense of what Zero thinks about them, even if he is not always the best judge of character and he gets more than one surprise) but especially those on the good side are varied, interesting, sympathetic, and morally complex. We don’t know every single detail of Zero’s life either (and he spends a fair amount of time under the influence of drink, drugs, both, or in pain) but he shares enough of his memories and experiences for us to root for him. We know how he met his wife, we learn about his brother’s passing, and even about some bad things that he might or might not have done. Many unreliable narrators sometimes try to paint themselves in a positive light, but although Zero is in denial about his addictions, he is a master of understatement and skilled at putting himself down.

I have once again highlighted a lot of the book, but just a few samples of a novel that’s eminently quotable:

Whenever people say, “It could always be worse,” they’re right … unless they’re talking about what the Lost Girls have been through. That’s where worse ends.

Talking about a superheroes blockbuster movie: It’s about Lycra overcoming evil.

I hate that playing a pedophile comes more naturally to me than being myself.

The trouble is, the camera always takes five pounds off the truth.

The flight attendant returns with my refill. Saved by the bourbon.

One of the nurses helping him move tells him: “Okay, this is always the hard part.” The perfect title for my autobiography.

This is a fast novel, sharp both in action and in style, with fabulous dialogue and a quick-fire and pared-down writing that is dynamic and vibrant. It also has a big heart, deals with a very serious subject, and manages to convey the depth of feeling of a character that goes to big lengths to hide that he is a big softy. Ah, and the ending is great too.

If you don’t mind a fair amount of violence (never gratuitous, but still…), the subject matter, and like heroes down on their luck with plenty of verbal style, you are in for a treat with this novel. An author to follow closely and an important subject.

New Release Review: Blood Oath (Shifters Unlimited #1) K.H. LeMoyne
Blood Oath - K.H. LeMoyne

 

 

How fast can you outrun death when it has you by the throat?


Callum Mann will do whatever it takes to get his pregnant mate across the territory line to safety and free from his alpha’s grasp. Even if he has to sacrifice himself.


Raised a survivor, Gillian isn’t about to let anything stand between her family’s freedom and happiness. Not a vengeful alpha, a twisted killer, or a rogue enforcer.

 

SHIFTERS UNLIMITED SERIES

Prequel 1: Blood Oath

Book 1: Hidden

Book 2: Missing

Book 3: Traitor 


GENRE: Shifter / Were paranormal romance

HEAT LEVEL: Some sexually explicit content


NOTE** This book includes the full novel, Blood Oath, and the novelette, Fight Night.

 

 

 

Blood Oath adds lots of depth to the Shifters Unlimited books that have already been released, because it goes back to where it all started and gives a few things a different perspective. Can you enjoy reading the books without reading this prequel, of course, but you would be missing out.

 

It’s almost like reading two stories in one – first you have Callum and Gillian two strong characters who defy the alpha in order to have their happily ever after. Their romance is sweet but their relations is fraught with danger from the very beginning which keeps readers glued to the pages. Second you have an assassin sent out to find another young woman and it seems that their paths are all on a collision course that adds lots of turbulence and emotional turmoil to the story. The suspense builds throughout the book with thrills and surprising twists even as the decisions made by the characters draw the readers further into their story ensuring that the reader wants to know everything.

 

The author also included Fight Night, a thrilling short story that gives readers a better perspective on Alpha wolf Deacon Black and how he became the Alpha and his motivations behind his “alphaship.” It is full of danger and emotional turmoil as well, so readers really get an exciting read while learning about the beginning of the Shifters Unlimited series.

 

K.H. LeMoyne has provided another compelling book to the series and I was completely caught up in the characters from the very beginning. I can’t wait to read Traitor which is due to be released in December.

 

 

 

Blood Oath is the 1st Book in the Shifters Unlimited series.

 

Traitor the 3rd book is December 12, 2017!

 

Blood Oath is available in ebook at:

Amazon

Release Day Review! Wolf Tales 11: Anton (Wolf Tales 11) by Kate Douglas
Wolf Tales 11: Anton - Kate Douglas

 

 

Tala and Lisa, both in the final stages of pregnancy, are kidnapped and become pawns in a terrible plot to assassinate the president of the United States. 
 
Unwilling to concede to the kidnappers’ demands, the men summon Anton for help. Devising a daring rescue plan, the über alpha calls upon the pack to lose themselves in an erotic encounter like never before. Drawing on their sexual energy will enable him to outmatch even their strongest enemies.
 
But Anton’s plan requires a sacrifice even the wizard didn't intend to make.

 

 

 

WOW! Anton is thrilling and sinfully sexy!

 

The wolf shifter world has an original, complex and dynamic culture that sets it apart from other shifter worlds and Kate Douglas brings it to brilliant life with well-written words and multifaceted, sexy characters that draw readers in and keep them coming back for more. The stories are super-hot and make wet dreams seem like child’s play in comparison, unless of course your wet dreams include the Chanku characters.

 

All the previous characters compose multiple scenes of the book which keeps readers hopping and enjoying some sizzling sex scenes. The book is full of emotional turbulence that runs a gauntlet of feelings as the characters overcome adversity and experience joy. Anton, being the pack alpha, really pulls readers into the story with his mysterious and strong personality, of course all of these characters have strong personalities, which provides lots of stimulus for readers.

 

The book starts off with one red hot scene and then immediately takes readers on a thrilling ride as suspense as a dangerous enemy sets the Chanku on a perilous journey that pulls them in different directions and has them dealing with some very difficult decisions and even the goddess, Eve has to lend a little assistance which keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

 

The stories is the Wolf Tales series really need to be read in order if you want fully enjoy the experience, but at the same time as long as you have a good understanding of the Chanku world you can enjoy Anton’s book if you’ve missed the previous one. As for me, reading this book was one steamy experience that had me glued to the pages and I really can’t wait for the re-release of number 12. 

 

 

 

Wolf Tales 11: Anton is the 11 novel in the Wolf Tales series.

 

Wolf Tales 12 will be re-released in January 2018.

 

From the author: This new edition of Wolf Tales 11 is the same story as the original--new cover, typos (hopefully) all caught, and a much lower price.
But Anton is just as hot as he's always been!

Shiver
Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater

Normally I'm not that into YA books including vampires/werewolves etc. But I heard a lot of positive stories about this series by Maggie Stiefvater, so I thought: Lets give it a try.


It didn't disappoint me at all. I liked it. It was a easy reading, nice story. Different from what I'm used to read, but fun though. The story wasn't very complicated, I'll admit that, but it can by nice every once in a while to read a more simple book. It can be really enjoyable. Probably also a good read during the summer vacation.
