He's tall. He's dark. He's brutally handsome.... And he may be her only hope.

 

Kit Jernigan despairs of ever fitting in with her new tight-knit K9 unit - they've been through too much to welcome a stranger. So when a killer strikes, it's a fight to convince her fellow officers to trust her long enough to catch the woman she knows is responsible. She can't do it on her own. What she needs most is a partner: local fire spotter Wesley March.

 

Wes knows in his heart that Kit is right, and he's willing to leave his lonely tower to help her prove it. But the more time they spend together, the hotter the fire smolders...and the more danger they're in. A member of the K9 unit's inner circle is determined to have her revenge - no matter who gets burned in the process.

 

This time, it's personal.

Through the Fire is book four in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series by Katie Ruggle.

 

I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks for this series. Each novel brings us a new couple to fall in love with and keeps the previous characters in the story.

 

We are treated to the small town of Monroe and it’s tough men and women who live in and around it as they deal with the troubles from outside forces that come their way. The author has weaved an ongoing plot arc around the women who end up in this town and who are hiding from organizations that want them dead. In Through the Fire the author twists this idea around in that it’s not the heroine on the run, but a new female K9 police officer Kit Jernigan who is about to get involved in the happens in Monroe and her love interest, Wes March, a nerdy, somewhat awkward, but handsome fire watcher.

 

This tale picks up shortly after Survive the Night. We are treated to action, suspense, and geeky moments. Kit’s first meet with Wesley is a bit awkward and then she is soon meeting her fellow officers Theo, Hugh, and Otto. This meet kicks off her instincts and she knows something is off.

 

The suspenseful plot that started in Run to Ground with Jules and her siblings is wrapped up here. Sam stole my heart in book one as did all the kids, but here we get to spend more time with him as Kit helps him to train a dog.

 

The romance was a slow sweet burn. Wes is such a sweet man, if not a little awkward. When Kit and Wes interacted they made me grin. I will say Ruggle did surprise me with the ending. I never saw it coming. I also loved the HEA and that this group of men and women all becoming good friends.

 

Narration: Callie Beaulieu has been the narrator for this series. She’s done a stellar job with the voices, capturing the emotions, and building up the suspense. I’d recommend the audiobooks for the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit.

 

**Note: I did win a complementary paperback ARC copy, but deiced to listen to the audio from my library instead.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....

 

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

 

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….

"you have the heart of a warrior. The soul of a priestess. The heat of a long-burning fire." -Bruiser
 

Broken Soul is book eight in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter.

 

A lot happens in this novel. Many changes, revelations, and secrets come to light.

 

Early in the series the blood diamond came into play. There’s always someone who knows about it and wants to get their hands on it. Jane has it hidden away for now. The plan was and is to destroy it, but that hasn’t happened yet.

 

If you are expecting The European Council of Mithrin Vampier’s to show, they don’t make an appearance yet, but our gang is getting ready for their arrival.

 

As I said a lot happens in Broken Soul to give Jane and her gang a run. Just because our Euro vamps aren’t here yet, doesn’t mean they aren’t planning and interfering.

 

We get a lot of developments in Broken Soul. Eli and the Kid, Alex, continue to be fun and an entertaining presence in Jane’s life. They are changing her and becoming family. Jane and Beast also go through some changes and character growth. Then we have Bruiser our love interest. I wasn’t sure on him, but I did/do like him so much more then Rick. Rick is and will always be a dush. I’m happy to say I like how Bruiser is winning Jane over and focuses on both her natures not just one or the other. He truly sees her.

 

Broken Soul was an entertaining and enjoyable read. I took a break from this series and after reading a little short story in the world I felt it was time to dive back into Jane Yellowrock and see how things turn out for our gang. I wasn’t disappointed.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

It was either this or I was moving back to the USA...

As many of you know, I am perennially pissed-off with the lack of audio rights in Australia, constantly frustrated every time I try to find an audiobook either at my library or online, only to be told "sorry, this book is not available in your country".  

 

The last straw was Kevin Hearn and Delilah Dawson's Kill the Farm Boy, which has come highly recommended by several people specifically in audio.  And it cannot be had here in the land that audio publishing forgot.

 

So a couple of days ago, I did some serious googling on US public libraries that allow non-residents to purchase a library card.  Almost none of them allow out-of-country memberships, but I found two that do:  Orange County Library System in Florida, and Philadelphia Free Library.  

 

I went with OCLS, because frankly, they responded to my application first.  The fee is $125 a year, which is steep, but works out to about $10 bucks a month, which is cheaper than Audible, and I go through at least 12 audiobooks a year.

 

Everything went through this morning, and I spent 2 giddy hours going through my Libby app and placing holds with wild abandon.  First up:  Kill the Farm Boy, of course. 

 

Color me a very happy camper.  May all that is good and bright heap blessings upon the Orange County Library System.

Halloween Bingo - 1st Square Filled
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

I finally finished my first book for Halloween Bingo by re-reading The Raven Boys. While it can go many places I am counting it for the Raven Square.

 

The first time I read The Raven Boys, I listened to the audiobook, and was enchanted.  This time, while my delight  was somewhat lessened by already knowing the major reveals, Maggie Stiefvater's language was almost as magical in print as it was as an audiobook.

 

Reducing my rating from 5 stars to 4.5 because you can't be delighted by a book for the first time twice.
