"Tempted & Taken" by Rhenna Morgan

 

My Thoughts...

 

This was another good series of the 'Men of Haven # 4 that was indeed a good read.  The story features one of my favorite of the 'Men of Haven' Knox Torren who  was yes a 'coder, hacker, dominant alpha and a friend.'  Then you add Darya Volkova who had to hide her identity, wanting to work for Knox and the reader will be ready for a wonderful story of how this will all work out as these two are drawn together.

 

Will Knox be able to save Darya from who she is running from? Will their chemistry that have for each other be able to keep them together? I loved how this author brings it all out about Knox past and why he was the way he was especially when it came to the women he came involved with.  With all the Haven Men, with their wives and moms  being involved again really makes this story so very real as they come together helping  just when it was needed.  Also, I liked some of the new characters that were new to this series that was added to to give the reader a different spin in how the story turned out. 

 

I will say it was great seeing Knox with Darya.  Now, will they get their HEA?  Well you will just have to pick up "Tempted & Taken" to see how this author brings out another good series to  the readers.  All that is left for me to say is that Knox was truly one guy I loved reading about where he finally gets his happiness!

My Thoughts..... 


A well thought out contemporary romantic novella that is part of 'The Darling, VT series with some undercurrent of personal struggles. What a story this was as it presented 'the tough subject of veterans and what could happen when they return home only to have to live with the horrors what had happened will they were away serving our country.' This is definitely one of those stories that will touch ones heart. I liked how this author was able to get George who was a 'wonderful, gentle, proud man who had fought for his country, lost everything suffering from PTSD had finally been given a second chance.  What will happen as the twin sister of his best friend [Ian] Amy Merck arrives and reawakens old bad feelings that had been so close to him? For George had blamed himself for years over Ian's death. Will these two [George & Amy] be able to finds some degree of closures and be able to help one another?  With each other needing so much healing you will have to pick up "Deck The Halls' to see how this heartwarming emotional novella that will put you in a holiday seasonal mood.

What a good holiday romance read of just what can happen when a love lost will be found once again that will definite capture the wonderful feeling of the true spirit of this holiday season.  I found this short novella story to be well written from the start to the finish that will definite keep your attention. This was one of those read that will have you shaking your head as this story unfolds that tells 'the tale of a pair of lovers that were truly torn apart by the conspiracies of a particular family member.'  What will happen when all of the story comes out from traveling to Wrotham Castle?  Will these two [Merry & Alex] that had been torn apart be able to work toward their HEA?  Well, to find out you will have to pick up "With This Christmas Ring" to find out.

"Eidolon" by Grace Draven

 

My Synopsis....

 

I really liked this sequel that continued on featuring Brishen, Ildiko, Anhuset and a some more characters [Wraith Kings] with their own personalities that will keep you turning the pages  with this author giving the reader a well developed written tale about the world of the Kai. The story did indeed keep me enthralled as the reader will see what Brishen does in order to try to save his people that could possibly cost him his life.  Be ready for a story that will have a little bit of it all which features a "world ending struggle, ongoing tale of romance, emotional rollercoaster, magic, fantasy, loyalty, sacrifice, friendship and honor. along with suspense, political intrigue and the impossible mission to save the world."  I will say you really should read the first 'Wraith Kings, book 1 in Radiance" to truly enjoy this fabulous second book 2 "Eidolon" that will give the reader a captivating read at its fullest in tragedy and triumph.

 

In the end the reader gets one awesome  fantastic read filled with romance, action and intrigue that will leave you wanting more of the 'Wraith Kings Series.'

My Thoughts....

 

I found this novel a very interesting well written read that definitely kept my attention all the way till the end. I found the main characters...Isaiah, Victor and Evan and Ian some very intriguing, well developed and believable giving the readers one good story.  Was this a gay read?  Yes! With the two main characters Isaiah [football player] and Victor [ballet dancer] both being from two different backgrounds it was quite interesting in how this author was able to give the readers a story that did connect quite well and bringing the son [Evan] into the picture really helped bring this story altogether.  Even though this was the second marriage for Isaiah [after having losing his former husband Stephen from a accident] will he be able to leave the past behind and start a new one with his new husband? Will Isaiah began to love again? I will say that I didn't really care very much for Isaiah until toward the end where it seems like after a certain incident that involved his son maybe he got some sense in what was really happening in this whole situation.  Now, I don't want to spoil it ...just saying you will have to pick up this novel and see for yourself what all it is about and how this author will bring it all out in the end. I felt that this was a enjoyable story that in the end you will find out if these two will get their HEA
