Sons of the Wolf
Sons of the Wolf - Barbara Michaels

Pure gothic suspense.

 

Two young heiresses sent to live in a mansion out on the moors of Yorkshire, completely removed from any society, with a mysterious guardian they've never met:  check.

Old abandoned half-ruined monastery:  check.

2 misunderstood sons, one dark and brooding, one sensitive and artistic:  check

Rampant superstition about mythical creatures:  check

One supposedly untameable black stallion: check

Big hounds roaming the moors:  check

Gypsies:  check

 

Sons of the Wolf has it all in spades.  Unfortunately, I didn't really connect with any of the characters enough to make the fantastically insane and relatively dark plot work.  I didn't hate it, but I wasn't at all invested in it, making a lot of small things I probably wouldn't notice if I were neck deep in the story stand out and irk me.

 

I didn't hate it; if someone were in the mood for a gothic story, it might provide a fun afternoon.  But it wasn't one of Michaels best.

The Duke of Nothing
The Duke of Nothing - Jess Michaels Count on Jess Michaels for an intriguing seduction. Falling in love just got much more complicated. From family duty to far reaching secrets and an all encompassing love, The Duke of Nothing is romance at it's finest moment. Is honor worth giving up on a heart's desire? Baldwin and Helena are on a mission to find themselves and perhaps discover a never ending love. Pleasure is only a romance away.

Great little horror story but................
Insomniac: A Horror Thriller - Bryan Michaels

When Mason Stone is wakened to the sounds of a neighbours party he notices that his wife Natalie is missing and all that is left is her crumpled red sleeping shirt under her pillow. What follows is the ramblings of an insomniac as he tries to discover the fate of his wife but he is soon to be faced with an horrific reality. This was a fast short read that I really enjoyed and as the book proceeded, the lines between reality and sanity became merged as Mason slipped more and more into his nightmare of paranoia. I do however wish that the author had paid more attention to the atrocious grammar that littered what was otherwise a very addictive read and I list a few examples, with the missing word or wrong word enclosed in brackets...."letting everyone (know) that she didn't come home"...." but this woman was driving a Dodge and was wore (wearing) jeans"....."as Peroni began took (taking) pictures of Mason"...."who were will (willing) to listen"...."I just would like some time alone. You can came (come) back tomorrow"...."He would know it isn't is (his)

 

There is no excuse for such sloppiness. I read and review many books on netgalley and I expect (unfortunately) mistakes as I am reading an advance/unproofed/uncorrected copy. However Insomniac is "sold" to readers who will hopefully enjoy and review positively, yet the author seems happy to present his work littered with simple grammatical errors. Having said that I decided to review this story on its content rather than poor use of the English Language.....

Holly and Ivy ★★☆☆☆
Holly and Ivy - Fern Michaels

Implausible, illogical, and full of plot holes. None of the three main characters, or most of the secondary characters, seemed like actual real people. 

 

Audiobook, purchased (then returned to get my credit back) via Audible. Brittany Pressley’s performance was good, given the source material.

 

I read this for The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season, Square 1, November 1st: Book themes for Calan Gaeaf: Read any of your planned Halloween Bingo books that you didn’t end up reading after all, involving witches, hags, or various types of witchcraft –OR– read a book with ivy or roses on the cover, or a character’s name/title of book is/has Rose or Ivy in it. This book has Ivy as a main character and as part of the title.

REVIEW
First in a New series and Oh wow what a story.
Where to begin so I don't give too much away.

Victor is an ancient and very rich vampire. He never loses control so one night when he does he is thrown for a loop.
He has no clue what is going on other than it's pulling him to some beautiful dark haired beauty.

Victors housekeeper a Fae finally sets him straight about what is going on and now he is on a mission. To Find Her.

Kimber is rare and is being hunted.
An ugly demon of some kind wants her, many want her but who will get her?

If you like a wide variety of paranormal creatures your in for one heck of a treat with this book. I was totally mesmerized.
