Jewelry designer Gemma Hewitt has a gift. Gems and jewelry speak to her, which inspires her designs, and also sends her on dark adventures across the globe as she seeks out historic pieces. After her mother is brutally murdered, Gemma inherits her famed jeweled collar, which she hopes will lead her to see the face of her mother’s killer and bring him to justice. Instead, she's thrown back to 1901 India where she sees the young woman about to be married with a pendant that matches her jeweled collar. When she's hired to find the entire bridal suite, she hopes she can use the jewels to save her family's fortune. Can she trust the handsome, enigmatic man who promises to help her on her quest, or is he the one she should be running from?
British reporter/photographer Raj Sinclair wants the bridal suite for his own reasons. Attracted to Gemma, he senses a connection with her as if he’s known her for a very long time. When danger stalks her, he will do anything to protect her.
The treasure hunt takes them to cities from the US to Britain to France, ending in India where the bridal suite is finally rejoined... and three reincarnated souls get another chance to make things right.
Eyes of the Tiger is chock full of suspense and intrigue as well as romance which keeps readers glued to the pages. Gemma and Raj are strong, compelling characters that have a sizzling chemistry that heats up the pages while they struggle to with trust and emotional issues that keeps the turmoil high despite their attraction and a smoldering passion that refuses to let them ignore it. The relationship is kind of an all uphill battle between Gemma and Raj but the intriguing events that take place keeps putting them together so they can’t deny the romance.
The anticipation builds throughout the story as the danger and the intrigue continues to build with lots of twists and turns to keep the readers wondering until the very end. The author makes it all come to vivid life with well written words that paint vivid images and makes it easy for the readers to become lost in the story.
Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for using twisting fascinating tales with unique elements that grab readers attention and keep them absorbed with the mystique and romance of her captivating characters and Eyes of the Tiger certainly holds readers hostage until the very end and to me it had a quest or treasure hunt feel to the story that really pulled me along and made feel as if I was joining Gemma and Raj on their adventure.

A pilot on the run. A warrant-taker determined to make a capture. The mating-dance that threatens to destroy them both…
Warrant-taker Jazen Lav accepts one last assignment before she retires to follow her dreams. She’s hot on the trail of a runaway cyborg, but the path leads to the crew of the Indefatigable and they’re a tight-lipped bunch. Frustration steers her to an undercover gig as a nurse, which places her in the sights of the flirtatious Indy pilot.
Nanu left his home planet at a young age, missing the last crucial elements of his training before he hit adulthood. The inner beast he thought dead leaps to life on meeting Jazen, taking him by surprise and tossing him into confusion. His inner beast insists Jazen is his mate, but she’s trouble for him, trouble for his friends, trouble for his future.
Abduction and betrayal—not the best way to start a courtship, and that’s where the turmoil begins since danger stalks into the city with Nanu and Jazen directly in its sights…
Betrayed & Seduced is one hot and fascinating read! The Indefatigable crew is back and I couldn’t be happier as the story starts off with an exciting event and keeps the thrills coming from there. Nanu and Jazen are strong characters with lots of sizzling chemistry that keeps the pages heated with smoldering desire and lots of smoking hot passion. The couple has some major obstacles to overcome if they want their happily ever after, but even that is in question until the very end as Jazen’s issues get in the way. The story immediately gets the adrenaline pumping and keeps the readers on the edge of their seats with lots of excitement, intrigue and a couple of betrayals that has quite the impact on the couple.
Shelley’s charming and intriguing House of Cat world just keeps getting better and I have to say that Shelley Munro has outdone herself with this one, as usual she brings her world and her characters to vibrant life and paints such vivid imagery that it easy to become caught up in the story as the readers picture each and every scene and in this case she gave Nanu some very intriguing and sexy characteristics that set the imagination on fire right along with Jazen and I was totally caught up in their story from the get go and I couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word. And since she set up the next book, with some intrigue already, I have to say that I am a bit impatient to read Enticed & Seduced to find out what happens.
The 7th book – Enticed & Seduced is coming soon.

[I received a copy of this book through Netgalley.]
An enjoyable fast-read when it came to the ‘psychic powers’ theme. I really liked the premise: a young woman who’s been making questionable decisions, and gets a second chance in a school for people with psychic abilities, where they’re trained to protect and server… but a few people on the inside have different agendas, and it’s a constant game of trying to figure out what’s at stake, and if it’s going to be a bunch of revelations, or something much more lethal. The powers the students have are varied, ranging from precognition to telepathy and even pyrokinesis, and I liked how the novel tried to bring a scientific approach to it: after all, they’re training people who’re going to end up working for the FBI or NSA.
The first scene also engaged me from the beginning, what’s with Teddy being banned from Las Vegas casinos, but still sneaking into one, disguised as a different woman, to hopefully win the money she owes a Russian crime boss, because otherwise her own parents will be targeted. Well, OK, nevermind that she should never have let things go that far, all the more if she’s so good at reading people at the poker table, but ‘questionable decisions’ being a key here, alright, I can go with that.
On the other hand, I never really got a good feeling for Teddy, or for the other characters. Some of them had a sort of ‘larger than life’ vibe, with their quirks (the animal medium who likes doing yoga naked, the ex-cop who’s a charmer and can literally set things on fire, the hacker who’s also an empath…); but they remained fairly one-dimensional. Teddy barely thought of her family except in the beginning, we know nothing of the others except for a couple of things like ‘his family’s rich and he has a boat’, and so when the story took a more action/heist-oriented turn, it was hard to root for them.
The other thing I didn’t like—and which contributed to my not enjoying the sotry as much as I hoped—was the globally juvenile aspects. These people are 20-something (Teddy’s 24, and Pyro must be at least 25 considering he served in the police for some time, and I doubt you just start there at 15 or so), but the whole Whitfield academy had a strong high school feeling, and I constantly thought I was reading a YA novel when in fact it was marketed as geared towards adult, with adult characters. I don’t mind YA in general, even though I have my gripes about a lot of books; I don’t think that ‘because it’s YA, it’s necessarily stupid and uninteresting.’ This said, the aforementioned gripes involve a certain number of tropes that I find cringe-worthy, such as the mandatory romance and love triangle, the professor who immediately favours certain students and begrudges the heroine and her friends, or the whole ‘school stars vs. misfits’ aspect. And those tropes were clearly present here, to the point of making me forget that those characters were, uh, two years from going to work for the FBI? Suspension of disbelief was then shattered every time forensics or the shooting range was mentioned; it’s like the story couldn’t make up his mind about whether it was meant to be about teenagers or about adult people.
Not sure if I’ll be interested in the sequel.
Matilda had a chance at finding a mate—twice. Her wolf was having none of that.
Matilda grew up as a rogue with parents who were less than ideal. As a young woman, she took the modeling world by storm, sharing her plus-sized beauty with the world, but fashion wasn’t her calling—becoming a lawyer was and, if the rumors are accurate, she is about to become a partner in one of the most prestigious law firms in the city. To the outside world, she has everything going for her, but Matilda is lonely—her wolf clamoring for a mate.
No wallflower, Matilda has tried to find her other half. Twice she thought she might have—both times, her wolf disagreed. Daniel and Evan were the ones who got away and while no other men have ever touched her heart the way they did, Matilda knows it is time to move on and contacts the Paranormal Dating Agency where Gerri has not one but two perfect matches waiting for her—or so she promises.
When Matilda said good-bye to Daniel, he wanted nothing more than to beg her to stay. His panther, however, agreed with Matilda’s wolf in that they were not meant to be, so he let her go. A year later Evan dated and was also rejected by Matilda’s wolf. His panther also agreed to move on, even as his heart wanted nothing more than to hold on tight. It isn’t until Gerri sets both men up on dates with their former love that the reason for their animals’ discontent becomes clear—neither of the men was her true mate alone—they were meant to be a triad—a true fated triad.
Claimed by her Panthers is an MMF Dating Agency Shifter second chance romance featuring one curvy lawyer, two hot panthers, and a very bossy wolf who refuses to settle for less than what her human half deserves.
Sexy, hot and sweet perfectly describes this second chance romance that gives Matilda not one but two hunky loves for her ‘happily ever after.’ The story may be short but the romance is sweet and the passion is smoking hot between these strong, captivating characters that sizzles with electricity on every page. The readers are easily drawn into the story as Matilda, Daniel and Evan are brought back together by the wonderful Gerri Wilder and her matchmaking skills.
The author painted vivid images that made it easy for me to become enthralled with the story and get caught up in this sensual and sweet second chance romance.
