Book Description:

 

When a mysterious illness begins to sweep through Noctem Falls affecting the children, Eleanor Kimball is called to the city to see if she can determine what is wrong. As a pediatrician Eleanor loves children and desires many of her own, however, after several dating disasters she has not only sworn off men, but has given up her dream of a family, and the promise of a destined mate.

 

After discovering Grant in Noctem Falls she is faced with her own insecurities and finds it hard to believe in his love.

 

Grant Douglas is a man of few words and doesn’t do well surrounded by others. He is scared to death of finding a mate. He believes the harshness of his past, where he struggled to survive, didn’t cultivate a gentle heart. After a series of terrifying nightmares where his mate is at risk, Grant has decided he doesn’t want a mate at all.

 

When he meets Ellie, he realizes there are some things worth fighting for. Even if it means putting himself out there by becoming the Alpha he was born to be and facing the power he desperately tries to hide.

 

As Ellie starts to believe in Grant’s love it will take every ounce their combined strength to discover why the shifter children are suddenly falling ill before it’s too late.

He grabbed the hem of her shirt and in one fluid motion pulled it over her head. She squealed and grabbed for a blanket. His dark chuckle reverberated through her. “Don’t hide from me.”

 

Ellie had one arm across her breasts and the other one was desperately trying to use the blanket to cover her legs. “My thighs are huge!”

 

When Grant crawled out from under the blankets Ellie could clearly see that he was, indeed, naked. With a wolfish grin he pushed her onto the pillows. “The only time a man should be worried about a woman’s thighs is when he’s trying to earn a place between them.”

 

What was probably supposed to be a sexy moment turned into a game of tug of war with the blanket. Their actions reminded her of playing with her neighbor’s dog, Kip. She released the blanket and Grant landed back on the mattress. She covered her mouth with both hands giggling uncontrollably.

 

Grant tilted his head to one side, just like Kip and she could barely breathe she was laughing so hard. “S-s-stop it!” When he growled out his frustration she had to cross her legs.

 

“Ellie, what has gotten into you?” he asked as he rolled her on her back. He knelt between her legs and stared down into her face.

 

“You remind me of Kip.” She wiped her eyes.

 

“Who is the hell is Kip?”

 

“My neighbors yorkie-poo.”

 

“What the fuck is a yorkie-poo?”

 

“Yorkshire terrier and poodle.”

 

He blinked. “I remind you of a poodle?”

A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.

 

Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .

After 20 some books the series has had it’s up’s and down’s for me. I have my favorites and the not so great ones, but this time around I wasn’t disappointed and had a marvelous time returning to the Argeneau series.

 

I’d say this book can be read as a stand-a-lone or be a starter into the series.

 

~~~~

 

The Immortal Who Loved Me delivers a new storyline with a little mystery, humor, and a sweet romance.

 

I loved the start. Sherry won me over on the very fist page. I liked her and liked that she had a good head on her shoulders. Stephanie, a little girl we have seen pop in and out of the books, was a nice addition. The poor girl has it ruff. I liked her interaction with Sherry and loved her comparing lifemates to pizza when explaining things to Sherry. Made me laugh.

 

The humor was remarkable in this one. I loved the miss pronounce of Basil (pronounced Baw-zil). Took me by surprise and had me smiling. Then their was Bricker he was kinda of an ass in this one, but boy did he have me laughing when he spit out all the different names for a mans penis. Yes, their are several names to call a mans penis and that whole scene was hilarious. Really, you need to read it.

 

Basil was adorable. He totally screwed up explaining things and had Sherry thinking someone slipped her something, until they shared their first kiss and then, well she starts to rethink things. I loved Basil and Sherry. They had several great moments. It was just so much fun reading about these two.

 

It was fantastic for me as a fan of the series to see old favorites pop in. I just love seeing old characters in any storyline show up.

 

We finally and I mean finally get closer on Livius, one of the bad guys who has been reeking havoc throughout several books. I’m glad that’s done, but we still have one more bad guy and all of Livius sons to find, but part of this plot comes to a closer and I’m glad.

 

I did have some issues with the book.


– I didn’t like how abruptly the ending was. We learn that Sherry’s paternal grandfather will show up and then the book ends.


– I also wasn’t to found of how this book handles consent when we learn some very disturbing things about Sherry’s mother’s past and who her really father is. This was explained by Elvi, but how it was explained ya it makes some sense, but still it’s rape in a form.


– I also felt that Basil and Sherry needed to talk more about the kids. Basil has had a kid every 100-years with a friend. This was just said and then they move on. I can understand where he’s coming from, living so long, but still it’s a hard issue to tackle and I felt the author didn’t tackle it. I wouldn’t be able to move on from this very easily.

 

Even with the few issues I had, I still ended up really liking this book. The Immortal Who Loved Me brought me back to what I love about this series. A fun loving story filled with characters to fall in love with and humor to keep you laughing.

CRAVINGS by LAURELL K. HAMILTON, ETC
Cravings - Laurell K. Hamilton,MaryJanice Davidson,Eileen Wilks,Rebecca York

Anthology 4.75 out of 5 stars. Excellent for an anthology.

1. "Beyond the Ardeur" (An Anita Blake tale) By Laurell K. Hamilton - I started reading this and I kept thinking that I've read this before. I searched for this title or series # in the list of titles. Nothing. So I kept reading, knowing what was coming next. Then I went back to the anthology's blurb and saw this: ***This short story is a condensed version of Incubus Dreams, book 12 in the Anita Blake series! No wonder, I have read it. I gave Incubus Dreams 5 stars, so I'll give this 5 stars.

2. "Dead Girls Don't Dance," by MaryJanice Davidson. I've read this one too. I have a feeling I read this before I was on Goodreads. I liked this story. Thought it was funny and sweet. 5 stars.

3. "Originally Human" by Eileen Wilks. Read it previously also. He's a "something different" that fell in love with her from afar. Cute story. 4 stars.

4. "Burning Moon" by Rebecca York. Okay I read all of these stories but this one was worth a re-read. Serial killer after handicapped woman and a werewolf who is there to stop him. 5 stars.

ETCHED IN BONE by ANNE BISHOP
Etched in Bone - Anne Bishop

What a fantastic book! All I could think of was I needed to get back to reading it. Another reviewer had mentioned that they thought this was the end of the series. I HOPE NOT!! PLEASE MS. BISHOP, DON'T LET IT END YET!

Loved, loved, loved the ending.
