review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-06-20 21:40
Book Review - Witchbane by Morgan Brice
WitchbaneWitchbane by Morgan Brice
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Supernatural mystery and murder meet M/M romance!

This was an exciting read from start to finish. The premise of this book could be ripped from the script pages of a long standing TV show about the Supernatural.

This book starts on All Hallows Eve (aka Halloween) with brothers Seth and Jesse about to embark on a bros camping trip to debunk a local 'hellgate' legend that they grew up listening too. Younger brother Jesse is a partial believer while older brother Seth, an ex-military man looking for a little stress relief and to reconnect with his younger brother after his return to civilian life. But sometimes the things that go bump in the night are real and the legend of the local hellgate takes a supernaturally fueled murderous twist that leaves younger brother Jesse dead, his body mutilated, and Seth scarred and changed for life. He has become a believer.

Fast forward two years later and Seth has become a hunter of those things that go bump in the night, has developed a network of teachers, researchers and other hunters doing the same sort of thing, and has pieced together the real reason why his brother was killed. It had been a mistake, he should have been the one dead as the first born male of his family. And there was a pattern to these grisly supernatural murders that affected not just his family but eleven others, now it was just a few days to Halloween and another first born son is about to die. Problem is, he's gone to ground and if Seth can't find him he won't be able to protect him and stop the supernatural cycle of murders, getting justice for his brother at last.

Sonny is a bartender at a popular local Richmond Virginia bar called Tredegar's, or Treddy's as it was known. He's a bit of a loner, a bit of a geek and he's got a past he's on the run from. A stalker ex-boyfriend, a religious family who was anti-gay to the point where they were going to send him to conversion therapy when he ran far and fast, changing names and identities until he landed in Richmond. Was finally safe, or so he thought. And then Seth walks into his bar. Hot, nice, and just his type. Sonny finds himself doing what he _never_ does, taking Seth home the night after meeting him. Their connection was immediate, the sex was smoking hot, and taking Seth home actually saved his life. Because Sonny - Evan - was one of the first born sons and the next victim of the occultists.

Trouble is Evan doesn't believe in all that mumbo jumbo, even when he's shown real magic, comes face to face with ghosts and grims. His past plays into the hands of those hunting him and Seth is made out to be another crazy stalker like the last boyfriend. So Evan bolts right into the hands of those who Seth has been trying to keep him safe from.

Will Seth save him in time?

Under the Desert Moon by Marsha Canham
Under the Desert Moon - Marsha Canham

Aubrey Blue is this close to avenging her family. There's just the last leg of her journey between her and her goal, a journey that will take her through the desert, fending off Comanche attacks, unwanted drunken advances from one of her travelling companions, and not-so-unwanted advances from another, a former convict who's after the same man she is, Christian McBride...



Marsha Canham never disappoints. Be it set in the Highlands, on the high seas, or way back in the medieval times, her stories never fail to entertain and/or intrigue the reader.

This one was no different. Set in the wild-wild West in the late 19th century, it featured everything one comes to expect from a western, and what I've come to expect from Ms Canham.
Old feuds for land, money, power, and/or women, gunslingers, chases through the desert, fighting "Injuns", gun fights, saloons...descriptive, evocative narration, wonderful characters, drama galore, and a romance that makes you tingle.

Christian McBride might've been a typical Canham hero (they all pretty much look and act the same), but it was still a pleasure learning about him, discovering the depths of his personality, and watch him topple like a felled oak for the one).

“You’re supposed to make a wish on a falling star,” he murmured.

“Did you?”

“I most certainly did. It took two dozen, but you’re finally here.”

Audrey Blue was rather special. An acquired taste and as much of a puzzle for both her hero and the reader. Some of her choices and decisions were rather incomprehensible (when there were simpler ways to accomplish what she wanted) as was her unwillingness to tell Christian the entire truth. Turns out, she had a good reason for keeping her cards close to her vest, and that reason sure was a doozy.

Together, these two made for quite a couple, with sparks flying every each way whenever they shared a scene, and though the romance might've come across as rather rushed, it was fiery and all-consuming, like romances "of old" are supposed to be (and Ms Canham sure can write a fiery romance).

The rest was just as wonderful, rife with mystery, intrigue and enough suspense to keep the reader engaged, on the edge of the seat and furiously turning pages to learn what would happen next. Multiple villains with multiple motives, each got their well-deserved end, with the most satisfying confrontation offered as cherry on the cake.

Rife with intrigue, wonderful characters with more or less shadowed pasts, revenge-seeking, scorching passion, and stunning imagery, this novel is a must read for all Marsha Canham fans, as well as fans of romance set under the sizzling sun of the frontier or under the glowing desert moon.

Release Day Review! Undercover SEAL (SEALs of Coronado #4) Paige Tyler!
Undercover SEAL - Paige Tyler

 

 

He’s everything she should fear…
Bristol Munoz’s life has never been typical. Or safe. Raised by her father, a Mexican drug lord who murdered her mother, Bristol knows she’s nothing but a bargaining chip to her father. He’ll give her to the man most able to further his cartel’s powerful holdings, and her life will go from bad to worse. Her only hope is to try another escape…Then he arrives. He’s different than the other men in her father’s compound, but no less dangerous. Maybe more so, because she’s attracted to him.

 

But all she really wants.
Working undercover for the CIA was not how Navy SEAL Nash Cantrell wants to spend his time. But keeping missiles out of the wrong hands is something he can handle. However, he didn’t count on part of his mission involving getting close to Bristol. He can’t afford to like her, but can’t stop himself. She’s a commodity her father won’t let go easily. When his cover is blown, Nash has to stop the deal—and save Bristol.

 

When the plan goes wrong and Bristol is kidnapped, Nash will break every rule to get her back.


Or die trying.

 

 


I just had a very thrilling visit with a daring and courageous Navy SEAL and a brave young woman in Paige Tyler’s newest SEALs of Coronado book.

Undercover SEAL is the fourth book in the series and the plot takes a couple of the SEALs on a mission that is a little out of their depths, or maybe puts those SEALs into a ‘fish out of water’ position that could end in their deaths if they don’t get it right. This fast paced and exciting story kept me glued to the pages with lots of action, suspense and a few surprises along the way which also kept me wondering what would happen next. Lots of excitement to be found but the fact that Nash is working undercover adds an intense expectation feel to the life or death situation that they find themselves in.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily held me hostage until the very end as I got to know them more and I found that the relationship growing between to be full of sizzling chemistry and of course since this should have been an attraction that both fought tooth and nail but couldn’t deny adds even more spice to the story and let me just say that Bristol had a few surprises for me as well.

 

Paige Tyler always makes all her worlds are well developed and so lifelike that I easily slip right into the thrilling stories and easily connect with her captivating characters. Undercover SEAL was a thrilling read and I can’t wait to go on another mission with the SEALs of Coronado.

4 STAR New Release Review! Dragon Undercover (Dark Scales Division #1) Lia Davis & Kerry Adrienne!
Dragon Undercover - Kerry Adrienne,Lia Davis

 

 

"Lia Davis has away of telling a story to make you feel you are right there looking into the eyes of a dragon." -Kimberley, Goodreads

 

Dragon shifter and team lead for DSD—Dark Scales Division—Owen Ashton has never lost a case.

 

When his sister’s murderer turns serial killer, he is determined to take the rogue dragon down, for good. His team tracks the murderer to a small town in Minnesota and Owen goes undercover to finally end Huff’s reign of terror. The last thing Owen expected was to discover his mate vacationing in the lake house next to his.

Nadia Hasting, along with her sister Sage, take the first vacation in years since their parents’ deaths. Visiting the lake house their family rented every year when they were children is exactly what they need for downtime before Sage heads to college. The hot neighbor is a bonus, but Nadia isn’t sure she’s ready to date. But the pull toward the sexy stranger proves too strong to ignore.

 

When Sage goes missing, Nadia turns to Owen to rescue her sister from a mad man.

 

But will Owen’s dragon scare her away from the one man that can save them all?

 

Dark Scales Division

1. Dragon Undercover
2. Snowed Undercover

 

 


What a ride! I just went undercover the sexy and thrilling new Dark Scales Division where the dragon shifters hunt down dragon criminals. On this mission Owen is hunting for the serial killer that killed his sister and while on this mission he meets Nadia and her sister Sage. But the mission becomes complicated when Owen realizes Nadia is his mate and then before he can even tell Nadia, Sage goes missing.

 

The characters in Dragon Undercover are strong and captivating, easily drawing readers into their story and Owen and Nadia’s romance is sweet but full of complications especially as this fast paced story if full of adrenaline pumping suspense as they hunt for the evil Huff who leads the couple on a thrilling chase which keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

 

Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne has created an exciting and fascinating new world with fantastic characters. Though the story is a little on the short side it never has a dull moment and I am completely intrigued by this new world and these law enforcement dragons, so I can’t wait for the next thrilling mission- Snowed Undercover!
