The Seven Sons of Jethro, Terri Grace
The Seven Sons of Jethro 2-in-1 Special ... The Seven Sons of Jethro 2-in-1 Special Edition: The Seven Sons of Jethro & The Flight of Love - Terri Grace,Pure Read

I really enjoyed these 2 Historical Romance, the last being a Mail Order Bride book. I voluntarily chose to review these books and I've rated both of these books 4.5*'s These are also books 10 and 11 in the Pure Read Clean Read Bundle of 41 books. Terri Grace has a gift of touching my emotional chords which leaves me laughing and in tears from her books. There's a bit of action in these books but also a lot of caring too. I look forward to more of her books. Onto the next.

Historical Romance
Heir to the Duke (The Duke's Sons) - Jane Ashford

Heir To The Duke by Jane Ashford is an entertaining historical romance.  Ms. Ashford has delivered a book that is well-written and furnished it with amazing characters.  Nathaniel marries Violet because she's suitable.  Violet married Nathaniel to escape her hateful grandmother.  Nathaniel and Violet's story is full of drama, humor, sizzle and a bit of suspense.  I enjoyed reading Heir To The Duke and look forward to reading more from Jane Ashford in the future.  Heir To The Duke is book 1 of The Duke's Sons Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Contemporary fiction meets supernatural thriller
Graveyard Shakes - Laura Terry

Continuing the trend of reading books selected for the Summer Reading program, I read Graveyard Shakes by Laura Terry. The reader follows two very different storylines that at the outset have no correlation to one another. The first revolves around two sisters who have newly arrived at a boarding school and are struggling to come to terms with their change of environment. The second focuses on a little ghost and his friend Modie (I don't know either) who as best as I can tell is a reanimated corpse. So on the one hand we are rooted in reality with a situation that seems very familiar: wanting to fit in yet also wanting to be recognized as the individual that you are. On the other hand, the supernatural elements of ghosts and zombies are compacted with horror because the only way that Modie can stay 'alive' is to absorb the soul of a dead (i.e. murdered) child. Yes, this is a middle grade graphic novel. (It is at this point that I have essentially 'sold' this book to the reluctant child reader standing in front of me while the parent stares at me open mouthed.) The good parts: The illustrative style was excellent and I really enjoyed the character journey of Victoria, the older sister. The not so good: It was way more disturbing and graphic than I expected plus the ending was entirely too predictable after all of the narrative build-up. While I did thoroughly enjoy the illustrations, I don't know that I'll be rushing out to read Terry's next work (unless the cover draws me in again). I didn't overwhelmingly dislike this book but I also didn't love it with all of my heart and soul (get outta here, Modie!). The little guys and ghouls in your life that love a good ghost story will probably fall head-over-heels for this one. 5/10

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-07-08 10:25
Kept by the Viking
Kept by the Viking (Forgotten Sons) - Gina Conkle

My reviews are honest & they contain spoilers. For more, follow me:


Gina Conkle is known for her hot and well-written Viking romances. Kept by the Viking, book 1 in a brand new series, is the latest in her growing backlist. Though I had a slow beginning, I really enjoyed the storyline and thought the H and h were absolutely adorable together.

The series titled Forgotten Sons is based on a band of Viking brothers where they’re mainly connected by circumstances, rather than bloodline. But Kept by the Viking largely focuses on the H and h’s relationship and everything surrounding it, rather than building up a backstory for the heroes of the Forgotten Sons, as they call themselves. Then again, there are 6 of them and I’m sure the author will reveal their stories in their own books. All I could gather that they had known each-other since childhood. They share a very strong bond and would do anything for one another. They’re called Forgotten Sons because of some circumstances or the other has made them leave their own home in search of glory, financial stability and, if possible, a home of their own where they can settle.

Kept by the Viking is the story of Rurik, the leader of the Forgotten Sons; a son of Birka, his birthplace. Rurik didn’t have a great childhood, and the aftermaths of that shaped his entire life every way possible. His father, Vlad, was a mean, merciless man whose show of ‘affection’ came with the use of his fist. He had treated Rurik’s mother like the dirt, and at one point, when the young Rurik rebelled against it he was beaten mercilessly. There are more stories of Vlad’s violence, but needless to say, since he left them Rurik or his mother, brother and sisters didn’t shed a single tear for that POS. He hates his father with a passion that rivals his need to possess his own lands.

The Protector: A Sons of Texas Novel - Donna Grant

Book two of the Sons of Texas picks up where book 1, The Hero, ends and this time it is with Cullen, the youngest, and Mia, the freelance pilot who was the last to see Orrin. They follow the breadcrumbs to try and find his father and to stop the Saints from getting their hands on the bioweapon. This one is just as good as The Hero. Definitely a spy/Jack Ryan type story line but with romance thrown in. It is delicious, adventurous, exciting, and intense. Mia and Cullen are great together and the plot line is getting better and better. The bad guys from book one, aren’t actually bad guys, Orrin might have a new love interest after 20 years of mourning his murdered wife, allies are murdered and the layers that are slowly being pealed back against the Saints are just showing even more layers and the deeper and more complex the true villains become. It was so good.
