ABOUT THE BOOK

 


No Cowboys No Angels
The Mystery Angel Romances Book 1
by Petie McCarty
Genre: Romantic Suspense


Kellen Brand's inheritance turns out to be a whopper—one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel!

 

Since Kellen is convinced no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, she vows to sell her farm and quick. Her handsome neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family's secrets. While Kellen has located one potential buyer, she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once.

 

Unfortunately, Kellen can't seem to stay out of trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It's her only hope of staying alive.

Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel …


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This mystery romance keeps readers in suspense regarding the romance and the mysterious angels all the way through the steady to fast paced plot. The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers into their story which is a pretty rocky romance as this relationship starts off on the wrong foot. The heroine and hero both have some communication issues and the heroine is a bit hard to relate to in some circumstances because she has such contradicting traits. On one hand some of her issues are easily understood and her motivations make sense but then in regards to others they aren’t really clear but the she keep readers interested in what’s happening. The sparks flying between Luke and Kellan keeps the relationship on the edge as readers can never guess whether those sparks are going to lead to another clash of wills or a steamy kiss.

 

The suspense of the relationship also builds due to another suitor for Kellan, one she has a past with and is still close to. The danger and excitement of the story comes from some unscrupulous characters that won’t hesitate to do violence and a mean spirited sheriff. Readers are kept guessing whether there really is a guardian angel and just who he or she is. While some of the events that happen during the excitement and danger of the story is a little on the predictable side, the story is most entertaining and during all the revelations made toward the end of the story readers will want to read the next intriguing mystery in the series.

EXCERPT 1


The frigid water closed in over Kellen, and she lashed out with both arms to force her head above the surface for a desperate breath. Her hiking boots would sign her death warrant. They already felt like concrete blocks. She had only minutes, maybe seconds, to keep herself afloat. She thrashed again, and this time her face barely cleared the water’s surface. She was ready and screamed with all her might.


Icy water filled her eyes, and her arms stroked har to keep her mouth above the water long enough to grab a precious lungful of air. She scissored her legs to help her dwindling buoyancy, but the physical act was so difficult with the boots on, her muscles screamed with the effort.


How many more times can I get a breath? Two, maybe three?


Her arm muscles strained in revolt as she scissored her legs again. She plummeted farther after each thrust, and her best effort barely pushed her mouth and nose above the surface. She didn’t scream again. There was no one around to hear, and she couldn’t spare the strength. Less than a minute had passed since she’d hit the freezing water.


Downward she stroked her arms hard, but the heavy flannel shirt dragged against the motion. She opened her eyes to see the surface, and at the peak of her thrust, her lips were still underwater. She tried to scissor her legs, but she had nothing left. She feared she would sink and flailed both arms upward. Death hovered at her shoulder, near as the blackest of shadows beneath the dock, tangible enough that she could reach out and touch the darkness. Another stroke downward, and she jerked her head back, ready to grab a breath. She could see a blurred shadow moving overhead. Hope buoyed her efforts to escape from the frigid arms of the river drawing her down, and she forced her way to the surface.


A huge hand plunged into the icy water and grabbed her right arm. Kellen felt her body straining toward the surface. The second her mouth was exposed to the air, she gasped for a breath. A cough wracked her frame and threatened the tenuous hold of the mighty hand on her arm. She sunk back down, her eyes filled with water, and her vision blurred. She knew she weighed a ton—with the soaked clothing and boots—and panicked thinking the hand couldn’t hold on. Yet she was dragged higher until another hand grabbed the back of her shirt, and her body careened up and sideways onto the deck. The mighty hands released her, and she clutched at the wooden planks to be sure she was far enough from the precipice to the icy water. She heaved two successive gasps, and a hard sob wracked her frame.


Two strong arms tugged her upright. She blinked rapidly to clear her blurred vision and saw Luke’s face, his dark eyes wide. Nothing had ever looked so good to her in all her life. With another hard sob, she threw herself into his arms and broke into tears. The brush with death shattered all her resolve and kindled emotions buried in the deepest recesses of her heart.


He yanked her roughly to him and clutched her tight to his chest, mumbling soothing words into her ear. His warmth seeped into her, and she clung to him like her lifeline, digging her fingers into his back, unwilling to let go and unable to stop crying.


“I almost d-drowned,” she stuttered, her face buried against his warm and now soaked chest.


“Good Lord, I know,” he rumbled and crushed her even tighter against him.


“If you had been a minute later,” she wheezed and tried to look up at him.


“Don’t even think that!”
She flinched and leaned back. His gaze looked hard and unyielding.


“Just be glad I got here in time,” he whispered harshly, and his eyes went black as onyx. He cupped her cheeks, lowered his mouth, and gently brushed his lips against hers.


The sizzle of heat shot straight to her heart and warmed her from the inside out. All she could manage was a nod. His kiss twisted all her wild emotions into a spinning vortex, allowing her only to react without thought, and she leaned in to kiss him again.

Divine Encounters (The Earth Chronicles #5.5)
Divine Encounters: A Guide to Visions, Angels and Other Emissaries - Zecharia Sitchin

The interaction between the Divine and man are considered some of the most important and inspiring moments within each of the Abrahamic faiths, yet the question always is who was the Divine?  Zecharia Sitchin reviews Divine Encounters throughout the ancient Near East whether recorded in the Bible or on cuneiform tablets in this companion volume to his series, The Earth Chronicles.

 

Through the first three-quarters of the book, Sitchin reviews numerous encounters that he has previously written about.  Among these topics are the Creation of Man (the “first encounter”) and the Fall, the sexual encounters between the divine and man, the Flood, and man’s search for immortality all with their own specific chapters.  Sitchin also covers visions, oracle dreams, and angels which he has previous mentioned and written about in his books, but never dedicated time to looking into them before.  Where Sitchin really covers new material is the theophany at Mount Sinai, discussing the Prophets of the Old Testament, and finally an essay in which Sitchin examines which Annunaki was the God of the Old Testament.

 

For those that have read most of Sitchin’s books before, the majority of this book is a review of the previous five books he had written at the time of the publication.  The only new ground that Sitchin covered was in the last quarter of the book in which he really examines Exodus, the Old Testament Prophets, and he examination of which Annunaki was the God of the Old Testament which resulted in a surprising conclusion especially for those reading this book for the first time.

 

Divine Encounters is a book geared for people who have never read any of Zecharia Sitchin’s work, but included material at the very end that was new for long time readers.  While I liked the new material, the fact I had to reread nearly 300 pages of topics I’ve read over the course of five books was annoying.  So if you’re a longtime read of Sitchin’s, get this book to complete your collection but read it last.  If you’re a first time reader of Sitchin, the vast majority of the book will give insight into Sitchin’s theories which are fully fleshed out—except what is covered in the last quarter of the book—in The Earth Chronicles series.

Book Review for Army by Chiah Wilder
 
 
 
 
 
Title: Army
Series: Night Rebels Motorcycle Club
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: September 18, 2018
Reviewed by: Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A member of the Night Rebels MC, Army is an arrogant, tough, SOB, and he makes no bones about it. His idea of having a good time is riding his Harley, boozing with his brothers, and having rowdy sex whenever the mood strikes him—which is often. Hook ups are on his terms, and if a woman doesn’t like it, there’s always another one waiting to take her place.

Then he sees her fighting in the rink, moving in ways that give him a whole bunch of nasty ideas about what he wants to do to her. And the way she looks at him? Well … there’s no denying the intense, mutual attraction. Chemistry sparks between them like the Fourth of July.

The only problem? She says she’s not interested. What the …?
Stiletto’s attraction to the rugged biker is like a storm electrifying the air, but with his swagger and perpetual smirk, he’s a poster boy for shattering hearts. If only her body would understand that.
Then she finds out he’s a member of the Night Rebels Motorcycle Club and is a deadly rival of her brother’s MC—The Satan’s Pistons.
But one night with him wouldn’t hurt anyone.
It’d just be a hook up, and probably the best sex she’d ever had.
Besides, who would ever know?
Then a series of tragic events lead the star-crossed lovers down a dangerous and dark path, forcing Stiletto and Army to make the hardest choices of their lives.
The Night Rebels MC series are standalone romance novels. This is Army’s story. This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.
 
 
 
 
I am really enjoying this series by this author.I have to say this was a really enjoyable read and that I laughed out loud through the entire story.
 
I loved the character's right of the bat and Mia and Army were fated from the onset of the story.The story had a great cast of character's as they all had great personalities.I loved Mia for not only surviving the bad stuff she had gone through in life but, how she turned the bad into something good and into a career she loved.Mia was just the perfect person for Army to fall for she was perfect for him in every way.
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to be Army.Why?The biggest reason is he had me laughing out loud practically from page one..I found him to conceited and brass ,had swag, and had total sex appeal even though he was one cocky bastard. lol I also liked the fact that already knowing that Army was the love and leave them type he finally realized that Mia was the one women to take a chance on even though we new she was not going to make it easy for him.I loved the change we saw in Army as the story progressed it was almost like seeing him finally grow up even though he was already and adult.I loved what an amazing couple he and Mia were .
 
Mia she was another character that made me laugh out loud.I found her to be confident, funny, a survivor,had sass beautiful on the outside as well within.Mia and Army's chemistry was apparent for the start and it was a bit comical on how Mia tried to avoid it.
 
The story was filled with a lot of sexy heated scenes for us to enjoy.The story had a bit of suspense and on going club issues to deal with but, what they never expected was when one of their brothers finally fell it would be for one of the rivals MC's sister.
 
I love a story like this when a conceited cocky bastard like Army falls that he falls hard.I loved the fact that his love interest was even a big complication for him as nothing worth having is easy to acquire and worth keeping.
 
I have to say Mia is definitely one of my favorite old ladies so far......
 
A recommend read to all !
And be sure to check out other stories in this series as they were enjoyable as well.
 
 




 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Aren’t you cold?”
Mia jumped at the sound of the deep voice—she didn’t hear anyone come out. She pushed away from the wall and let her gaze fall on Army. The yellow glow of the streetlights made his features soft against the darkness of the night. She ran her hands up and down her pebbled skin. “I am. I was just going to head back inside.”
He stood in front of her, blocking her. “Stay for a few minutes.” He shrugged off his leather jacket and draped it around her shoulders before she could protest. The heat from his body felt absurdly intimate, and she was extremely aware of his fingers brushing the back of her neck. He smelled of leather and caramelized dark coffee beans with a tang of salty herbs to it, and it was the most sensual aroma she’d ever come across. It wrapped around her, and much to her chagrin, desire rippled through her. 
“Thanks,” she croaked, her throat dry with tension.
“We never really met each other. I’m Army.”
“Mia,” she said softly. He still stood close behind her.
“That’s a pretty name,” his breath whispered over the curve of her neck, threatening to ensnare her.
Without thinking, she leaned back into him, and he ran a thumb along her jaw as his calloused skin scratched her lightly. “I couldn’t keep my eyes off of you during the fight. You were amazing.” His breath was warm on her cheek and her inner thighs clenched in reaction.
Army cupped Mia’s chin and tilted her head back so she gazed into his desire-filled eyes. Her lips parted when he dipped his head down as his grip tightened on her chin.
Her brain screamed at her to stop, but her traitorous body relaxed in his powerful arms. Danger radiated from him, but it only heightened her excitement.
“Mia,” he said, his low voice a mixture of sensual and gruff masculinity.
Her stomach fluttered as she closed her eyes in anticipation of his kiss.

She needed a hero.

 

He wasn't anyone's hero.


 

 

Wren was done. After being used and abused, she lands in the lap of Maniac. A man who sees her as nothing more than a chore.

 

Maniac West isn’t a man to mess with. Not with him and not with his club.

When he is assigned to watch over Wren, he ignores how he feels about the woman with the soulless eyes. Something in them makes him crave to return light there. But Wren is a job. No more, no less.
That all changes when Wren decides she doesn’t want to live.
 
WARNING: This book contains possible triggers of suicide and sexual abuse. Please proceed with caution. While those scenes with sensitive matter are not greatly detailed, they are there.
 

 

 

 
 
Let's start off by saying that we really are enjoying this series along with this current read.

We enjoyed the story as it was an emotional one that tugged at your heart strings .Wren one of the main character's has to been to hell and back and she needs a nudge into the living and Maniac is just the person to do that.


I liked Wren's character as she was just a little lost and broken inside but, when she choose to come out of her shell she was funny and had a sense of humor and I loved how she traded barbs and teased Maniac at every chance she could.


Wren-she was a strong women with a trouble past filled with betrayals,lies,rape,abuse yet somewhere inside the broken women she re-emerged from her pain and you saw the smart,sexy,fun girl that she was before the man she loved betrayed her trust and heart.As the story progressed I loved seeing Wren happy again she was one of those character's that you could not help but love.


I loved Maniac's character as he was patient,kind,had a sense of humor but,under all that niceness there lurked a very dark and dangerous man.I loved him from the onset of the story.


Overall we loved the story as it was about healing,revenge,romance and trusting someone with your heart once again.The romance story between and Maniac and Wren was super sweet and very touching.


The story also made as laugh out loud and smile every now and then.I loved Maniac and how he went about winning his girl as he did it with stealth and determination and he understood when to push and retreat to win his prize.I found him to have patience and kindness and humor in these situations and we loved each and every one of them.


Favorite part would be ending and I have to say that it was one of the most funniest scenes throughout the entire story and we loved every minute if reading it as we laughed out loud for several minutes. lol


We are loving this series as well as the characters they are fun and engaging all had amazing personalities and we loved reading about each and everyone one of them and we love revisiting them as the new stories emerge.


Favorite quote      "Pretty sure Wren could barbecue a flip-flop and it would taste amazing."

Book Review for Dark Wolf Running Bloodrunners Book 5 By Rhyannon Byrd
 
Dark Wolf Running
Bloodrunners Book 5
By: Rhyannon Byrd
 
 
 
  5 stars
Reviewed by:Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
Format:Kindle
Published: Harlequin Nocturne
 Gene: Paranormal Romance 
 

Blurb
 
In Rhyannon Byrd's latest Bloodrunners
 
 romance, passion and secrets collide and
 
 only their love will save two werewolves
 
 and their pack. 

With his sharp gaze locked on the most
 
 magnificent female he'd ever seen, Wyatt
 
 Pallaton did his best to hold himself back
 
. Of course, Elise Drake was hardly just
 
 any female. Fiery and cool, strong, yet at
 
 the same time achingly vulnerable, she'd
 
 turned his entire world on its head. 

No matter how bloody difficult it proved
 
 to be, he was done letting her pretend he
 
 didn't even exist. Done with letting her
 
 fight her own battles. Done driving
 
 himself slowly into this maddening state
 
 of frustrated desire. One way or another,
 
 things were about to change. 

Come hell or high water, she was done
 
 running…

Paperback
Wow ! What a page turner from beginning to end could not put my book down.I love the series so much I purchased the rest of the series to read right after I finished reading this title.I have read Rhyannon Byrd books over the years and really enjoyed them so I was glad to see a new title from her to read.I love reading paranormal books and love reading about those hunky shape-shifters so this was the perfect romance novel for me to indulge in .

What a wonderful plot and story of romance surrounded by danger and lots of intrigue.Just love the two main characters Elise and Wyatt both amazing characters.

Elise she was a firecracker for sure.She was a tough outspoken women who seemed to be tough as nails.She never took no for and answer.She was determined and had nerves of steel.Considering her job description you would never have thought she had this kind of personality.

Elise set out to find her missing sister.She packed up her life to go on the road to find her .She was her one focus in her life.In finding her sister she is now mixed up in a plot of human trafficking by and opposing shape shifter clan.Having no clue of what she has stumbled upon she is rescued by Wyatt Pallaton a shape-shifter with the blood of royalty.

Wyatt tried to warn Elise to move on from there very first meeting but she was having none of it.The tall dark mesmerizing man wasn't scaring her off.After reading the scene of there first meeting I new this couple would be drawn to to each other and the sparks would fly between this couple.I smiled and chuckled through the whole scene of the two of them head to toe with each other just picturing this tiny little women with the giant of a man.(lol)

 Wyatt had to be my favorite character.He was one of those love-able characters with a big heart protective of those he loved and still protective of those he didn't. I did feel sorry for him at times because his pack members kept him at a bit of a distant his blood line was one of those reasons as it was the purest of there kind. He was also being judged for his fathers sins and not his own and it really isn't fair as he is nothing like the monster his father was .He was not only his father  but, was there pack leader to.There is a sadness to him.Even though he was well liked by the rogue hunters and respected by others you felt his loneliness and despair. Elsie was his one bright light in it all his sunshine his mate but, not trusting his own  feelings toward Elise he pushes her away then pulls her in pushes her away again like a tug of war.You understand though he is afraid of hurting her but , I think its more he thinks he was undeserving of her love.If was not half  in love with Wyatt's character from the  very beginning I was  head over heels after he risked his life to save Elsie's and what he did to care for afterward made me tumble .Sigh....

This was such a great story.So much going on all the time.Secrets coming to life .Learning the real secrets of her sister's kidnapping.The journey of Wyatt and Elsie falling in love .The sisters betrayal and not seeing a happily ever after in this foreseeable future for this couple. An lets not forget the other amazing characters we were getting to know and learn about.So looking forward to reading their stories.This story had everything  to make it an amazing and intriguing story to keep you turning the pages into the wee hours of the morning.

Looking forward to the next installment and the past installments already loaded on my kindle.Recommended to all the paranormal romance junkies like me.

Happy Reading All !
