Ross Blackthorne likes his cars fast and his women faster. As the third son, he’s accustomed to living his life without the pressure to succeed that his older brothers face. But when he crashes his race car during a public event, his father decides enough is enough. It’s time for Ross to step up and join the family business.
 
Holly Brooks has her hands full running operations at the Blackthorne Distillery in Lexington, Kentucky. The last thing she needs is to babysit an unrepentant playboy who doesn’t have any interest in learning what it takes to make world-class bourbon. Ross only intends to stay for as long as it takes to convince his father he’s better suited to driving fast—but working in close proximity to Holly is more interesting than he expected.
 
Can daredevil Ross convince good girl Holly that he’s worth the risk? Or is their budding relationship doomed to crash and burn?
 
 
 
 

Ross (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes Book 3)Ross by Lynn Raye Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the 7 Brides For 7 Blackthornes series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyement, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Ross is thrown back into the company business after an accident that almost ended in tragedy. He is not happy to be there, until he meets his mentor. She is fiery, sexy, and everything he never knew he needed.

Holly wants nothing to do with a playboy who couldn't remember he already met her! It's a crime that he is even there in the first place. Too much has already happened to her family, and she wants to make the most of her position, so she will teach the unteachable.

This story was a pleasant surprise and not at all what I thought I was going to get. This series is already turning out to be great. I love these characters with the heat that sizzles between them, as well as the banter that just makes me laugh out loud. Overall a good pace and a terrific read.

Ross (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes #3) by Lynn Raye Harris
Ross - Lynn Raye Harris

 

 

Never afraid to push the boundaries, Ross finds himself to be in over his head when it comes to love. Holly is a woman with business on the brain. She hasn't met a rule that she won't follow. Until bad boy Ross has her rethinking her stand on risking her heart. Harris sprinkles a hint of spice into an up close and personal romance.

A Bad Breed
A Bad Breed - Kat Ross
Anne is a daeva- one of a few magical and ancient beings left who now use their powers to hunt down any evil beings left in the world.  Anne is on assignment in a small Romanian village in 1889, she is on the hunt for a pricolici- a creature of folklore, a werewolf that killed several children in the small village. Anne has uncharacteristically gone missing from a nearby monastery on her assignment prompting friends Vivienne, Alec and Nathaniel to come looking for her.  Unbeknownst to Anna or Alec, Anne is being held as collateral by the very beast she was after in order for the beast to settle a grudge a few hundred years old.  However, as Anne begins to study her captor, she learns much more about him than she expected.
 
Bad Breed is a Gothic fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast and is the third in the Gaslamp Gothic series.  This can be read as a stand-alone, but now I definitely want to read the first two books.  The Romanian folklore of the pricolici intrigued me at the very beginning as Anne tries to outrun the vampire-werewolf hybrid that doesn't seem to particularly want to hurt her.  Furthermore, I was very interested in the origins of the daeva, I'll have to go back and read the other books to find out about that.  The action and pacing of the story was very tight and kept everything moving quickly.  The writing was a good mix of fantasy, fairy tale retelling, mystery and romance.  I especially liked the details that tied the story to Beauty and the Beast, but didn't make it a direct reproduction.  I especially loved the fierce female characters.  Anne was anything but a damsel in distress, even when her magic was disabled and Vivienne seems a loyal protector.  The mystery of the pricolici and what exactly he wanted with Anne and Alec kept the mystery going.  The ending left room for more of the story to be told as well, so I will be looking forward to the next book as well.

End of the Megafauna by Ross D.E. MacPhee
End of the Megafauna : the Fate of the World's Hugest, Fiercest, and Strangest Animals - Peter Schouten,Ross D. E. MacPhee

TITLE:  End of the Megafauna: The Fate of the World's Hugest, Fiercest, and Strangest Animals

 

AUTHOR:  Ross D.E. MacPhee

 

ILLUSTRATIONS:  Peter Schouten

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2019

 

ISBN-13:  9780393249293

_____________________

DESCRIPTION:

"Until a few thousand years ago, creatures that could have been from a sci-fi thriller—including gorilla-sized lemurs, 500-pound birds, and crocodiles that weighed a ton or more—roamed the earth. These great beasts, or “megafauna,” lived on every habitable continent and on many islands. With a handful of exceptions, all are now gone.

What caused the disappearance of these prehistoric behemoths? No one event can be pinpointed as a specific cause, but several factors may have played a role. Paleomammalogist Ross D. E. MacPhee explores them all, examining the leading extinction theories, weighing the evidence, and presenting his own conclusions. He shows how theories of human overhunting and catastrophic climate change fail to account for critical features of these extinctions, and how new thinking is needed to elucidate these mysterious losses.

Along the way, we learn how time is determined in earth history; how DNA is used to explain the genomics and phylogenetic history of megafauna—and how synthetic biology and genetic engineering may be able to reintroduce these giants of the past. Until then, gorgeous four-color illustrations by Peter Schouten re-create these megabeasts here in vivid detail.
"

______________________

REVIEW:

 

This provides a good introduction and overview to the extinctions that occurred in the Cenozoic Era (Age of Mammals), focusing mainly on the megafaunal extinction at the end of the Pleistocene era.  The author discusses the evidence (or lack thereof), the various hypotheses, and the opposing or contradictory evidence and opinions.  Also discussed is the effect that early humans had on the megafauna and if human actions may be responsible for some of the extinctions.  This is an interesting, well thought-out book that is lavishly illustrated and a joy to read.
