Ghost of a Chance
Ghost of a Chance - Kate Marsh;Katie MacAlister

So, Karma is a half human house "cleaner" (she exorcises haunted homes) who agrees to "clean" one last home in exchange for a divorce. Spider (nice name huh?) won't contest it. There are imps, domovoi, poltergeists (or polter).
I admit to a little confusion at the start, with all the terms. Everything is gradually explained however. This was a nice mystery and I didn't see the ending coming (although I should have- there were clues that I didn't pay attention to). I enjoyed the characters and the interactions. They were snarky and fun. Pixie AKA Desdemona AKA Obsidian Angel AKA Morbent Vixen (and it continues) was an interesting character and I was glad there were answers in regards to her background. Spider (an asshole, and a plain rotten human being) got what he deserved and another character does too!
I did still have a few questions about the Akashic league and wergeld, but oh well. This was a fun read! This looks to be the only book, but could have worked as a series I think.

Sentinel of Darkness (Darkness Series #8) by Katie Reus
Sentinel of Darkness - Katie Reus

Sentinel of Darkness (Darkness Series #8) - Katie Reus 

 

Sweet, cute novella and as usual by this author, full of romance, sexy heroes, and shifters shenanigans.

 

Dagen meets Keva in the most imperfect way but the moment he meets her, his dragon knows she is IT for him. The way he protected Keva (and actually all shifters in this series) is sweet and romantic. What I liked the most about the two was how in spite of having both gone through hell (one of them literally) they were still warriors and didn’t shy away from love. I would have loved for this story to be longer and read more about the other members of the pack, and specially that very pregnant shifter. But overall it was an enjoyable read that reminded me how much I like dragon shifters and this series.

 

*I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher*

Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars ~ Hunting Danger (Redemption Harbor #5) by Katie Reus
Hunting Danger (Redemption Harbor #5) - Katie Reus

Hunting Danger (Redemption Harbor #5) - Katie Reus 

 

Nova receives what appears to be an S.O.S. message from her best childhood friend and immediately sets out to help her friend. Gage is not about to let the most wonderful woman he’s ever met put herself in any type of danger, even though he knows there is not a chance of starting a romance with Nova. And so, what started as a simple meeting between friends ends up in being the ride of a lifetime.

Nova and Gage’s story was everything I’d hoped for and more! The author was able to weave a perfect romance with non-stop action, friendship, and suspense. There is one specific scene where danger is sky high and the way it was told was so palpable that it was as if I was watching a motion picture!

Their relationship advances at a steady and believable pace. Gage was of a mind that no matter how much he desires Nova their work relationship should be a priority and didn’t want to mess that up. That part was getting a bit on my nerves but at the same time I kind of got his point of view. Furthermore, although Gage was protective of Nova, he was never alpha-annoying and trusted her instincts without hesitation. I don’t know about other readers but I always appreciate a man that treats a woman like a partner and not like a fragile piece of porcelain.
That being said, can I say how much I love Sky and Colt as a couple? We met them in Resurrection, book 1 of this series, and to me their relationship is the epitome of couple perfection ♥ So thank you Katie Reus for giving me another glimpse of what an awesome couple they are in this book! Of course the rest of the team is just as amazing. The tight bond that surrounds them is what think makes this series such a great read.

I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Quick Contemporary Romance
On His Watch (Search and Rescue) - Katie Ruggle

On His Watch by Katie Ruggle is a contemporary romance.  This is a quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Ruggle has given us a well-written book and furnished it with a delightful cast of characters.  Derek is on the fire department dive team.  Artemis is an elementary school teacher.  Derek and his team leader arrive at the school to give a presentation to Artie's class.  Madness and mayhem arrived right behind them.  Artie and Derek's story has enough drama, humor, sizzle, suspense and action to keep any reader happy.  I enjoyed reading On His Watch and look forward to my next book by Katie Ruggle.  On His Watch is book 0.5 of the Search And Rescue Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

A Secret Garden - Katie Fforde

Lorna is in charge of the garden at the country house estate of childhood friend Peter. She loves her job and also happens to love Peter. Peter meanwhile has met and fallen head over heels for Kirstie. Philly ran away from home with her grandfather. Together they live in a rather ramshackle holding, where Philly can raise her plants and Grand can bake his cakes that they sell at the local market. At a dinner party held for Kirstie, Lorna meets Jack and Philly meets Lucian. But as the year goes on and Lorna and Philly work on a newly discovered secret garden it appears that not everything is coming up roses in their relationships.

 

I always find myself speeding through a Katie Fforde novel. I would have finished A Secret Garden in a day if real life hadn’t got in the way. I was soon wrapped up in the lives and loves of Lorna, Philly and their friends.

 

As I’ve come to expect there was a mixture of characters. There were the lovely ones, easy to warm to. There were the awkward ones, snobbish ones and down right rude ones. All come together to create an entertaining and warm-hearted tale.

 

Katie Fforde novels are always great escapism. I don’t care that people fall in love almost immediately, and marry at the drop of a hat. There are some who say that they can be predictable. I like that. Yes real life isn’t always like that but sometimes is nice to escape from reality. In a time where life can be anything but predictable, settling down to read a story where you know there will be a happy ending is sometimes just what you need.

 

A lovely way to while away a few hours. I’m already looking forward to the next book by Katie Fforde.
