Under the Desert Moon by Marsha Canham
Under the Desert Moon - Marsha Canham

Aubrey Blue is this close to avenging her family. There's just the last leg of her journey between her and her goal, a journey that will take her through the desert, fending off Comanche attacks, unwanted drunken advances from one of her travelling companions, and not-so-unwanted advances from another, a former convict who's after the same man she is, Christian McBride...



Marsha Canham never disappoints. Be it set in the Highlands, on the high seas, or way back in the medieval times, her stories never fail to entertain and/or intrigue the reader.

This one was no different. Set in the wild-wild West in the late 19th century, it featured everything one comes to expect from a western, and what I've come to expect from Ms Canham.
Old feuds for land, money, power, and/or women, gunslingers, chases through the desert, fighting "Injuns", gun fights, saloons...descriptive, evocative narration, wonderful characters, drama galore, and a romance that makes you tingle.

Christian McBride might've been a typical Canham hero (they all pretty much look and act the same), but it was still a pleasure learning about him, discovering the depths of his personality, and watch him topple like a felled oak for the one).

“You’re supposed to make a wish on a falling star,” he murmured.

“Did you?”

“I most certainly did. It took two dozen, but you’re finally here.”

Audrey Blue was rather special. An acquired taste and as much of a puzzle for both her hero and the reader. Some of her choices and decisions were rather incomprehensible (when there were simpler ways to accomplish what she wanted) as was her unwillingness to tell Christian the entire truth. Turns out, she had a good reason for keeping her cards close to her vest, and that reason sure was a doozy.

Together, these two made for quite a couple, with sparks flying every each way whenever they shared a scene, and though the romance might've come across as rather rushed, it was fiery and all-consuming, like romances "of old" are supposed to be (and Ms Canham sure can write a fiery romance).

The rest was just as wonderful, rife with mystery, intrigue and enough suspense to keep the reader engaged, on the edge of the seat and furiously turning pages to learn what would happen next. Multiple villains with multiple motives, each got their well-deserved end, with the most satisfying confrontation offered as cherry on the cake.

Rife with intrigue, wonderful characters with more or less shadowed pasts, revenge-seeking, scorching passion, and stunning imagery, this novel is a must read for all Marsha Canham fans, as well as fans of romance set under the sizzling sun of the frontier or under the glowing desert moon.

4 STAR New Release Review! Dragon Undercover (Dark Scales Division #1) Lia Davis & Kerry Adrienne!
Dragon Undercover - Kerry Adrienne,Lia Davis

 

 

"Lia Davis has away of telling a story to make you feel you are right there looking into the eyes of a dragon." -Kimberley, Goodreads

 

Dragon shifter and team lead for DSD—Dark Scales Division—Owen Ashton has never lost a case.

 

When his sister’s murderer turns serial killer, he is determined to take the rogue dragon down, for good. His team tracks the murderer to a small town in Minnesota and Owen goes undercover to finally end Huff’s reign of terror. The last thing Owen expected was to discover his mate vacationing in the lake house next to his.

Nadia Hasting, along with her sister Sage, take the first vacation in years since their parents’ deaths. Visiting the lake house their family rented every year when they were children is exactly what they need for downtime before Sage heads to college. The hot neighbor is a bonus, but Nadia isn’t sure she’s ready to date. But the pull toward the sexy stranger proves too strong to ignore.

 

When Sage goes missing, Nadia turns to Owen to rescue her sister from a mad man.

 

But will Owen’s dragon scare her away from the one man that can save them all?

 

Dark Scales Division

1. Dragon Undercover
2. Snowed Undercover

 

 


What a ride! I just went undercover the sexy and thrilling new Dark Scales Division where the dragon shifters hunt down dragon criminals. On this mission Owen is hunting for the serial killer that killed his sister and while on this mission he meets Nadia and her sister Sage. But the mission becomes complicated when Owen realizes Nadia is his mate and then before he can even tell Nadia, Sage goes missing.

 

The characters in Dragon Undercover are strong and captivating, easily drawing readers into their story and Owen and Nadia’s romance is sweet but full of complications especially as this fast paced story if full of adrenaline pumping suspense as they hunt for the evil Huff who leads the couple on a thrilling chase which keeps readers on the edge of their seats.

 

Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne has created an exciting and fascinating new world with fantastic characters. Though the story is a little on the short side it never has a dull moment and I am completely intrigued by this new world and these law enforcement dragons, so I can’t wait for the next thrilling mission- Snowed Undercover!

Release Day Review! Undercover SEAL (SEALs of Coronado #4) Paige Tyler!
Undercover SEAL - Paige Tyler

 

 

He’s everything she should fear…
Bristol Munoz’s life has never been typical. Or safe. Raised by her father, a Mexican drug lord who murdered her mother, Bristol knows she’s nothing but a bargaining chip to her father. He’ll give her to the man most able to further his cartel’s powerful holdings, and her life will go from bad to worse. Her only hope is to try another escape…Then he arrives. He’s different than the other men in her father’s compound, but no less dangerous. Maybe more so, because she’s attracted to him.

 

But all she really wants.
Working undercover for the CIA was not how Navy SEAL Nash Cantrell wants to spend his time. But keeping missiles out of the wrong hands is something he can handle. However, he didn’t count on part of his mission involving getting close to Bristol. He can’t afford to like her, but can’t stop himself. She’s a commodity her father won’t let go easily. When his cover is blown, Nash has to stop the deal—and save Bristol.

 

When the plan goes wrong and Bristol is kidnapped, Nash will break every rule to get her back.


Or die trying.

 

 


I just had a very thrilling visit with a daring and courageous Navy SEAL and a brave young woman in Paige Tyler’s newest SEALs of Coronado book.

Undercover SEAL is the fourth book in the series and the plot takes a couple of the SEALs on a mission that is a little out of their depths, or maybe puts those SEALs into a ‘fish out of water’ position that could end in their deaths if they don’t get it right. This fast paced and exciting story kept me glued to the pages with lots of action, suspense and a few surprises along the way which also kept me wondering what would happen next. Lots of excitement to be found but the fact that Nash is working undercover adds an intense expectation feel to the life or death situation that they find themselves in.

 

The characters are strong, captivating and easily held me hostage until the very end as I got to know them more and I found that the relationship growing between to be full of sizzling chemistry and of course since this should have been an attraction that both fought tooth and nail but couldn’t deny adds even more spice to the story and let me just say that Bristol had a few surprises for me as well.

 

Paige Tyler always makes all her worlds are well developed and so lifelike that I easily slip right into the thrilling stories and easily connect with her captivating characters. Undercover SEAL was a thrilling read and I can’t wait to go on another mission with the SEALs of Coronado.

3 Out Of 5 "I wish I could've fully loved this" STARS
The Surviving Trace - Calia Read

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

The Surviving Trace

Calia Read

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Will is my fiancé. The shy man I met years ago in college. The person I’m supposed to spend the rest of my life with. 

 

This is the life I’ve always wanted until finding a picture of four men changes everything… 

 

Étienne says he’s my husband and the year is 1912. He can’t stand the sight of me, but I don’t know why. 

 

Oh, and he’s one of the men from the picture. 

 

I’ve done the impossible and have become trapped in time and I know Étienne is my key to going home. 

 

The more time I spend with Étienne, the further I fall for him until I’m questioning which time I belong in and if the life I left behind is the one I truly desire. 

 

All I know for certain is I need to survive time. 

 

I need to survive love. 

 

And I need to make it out on the other side alive.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I know that when it comes to a time-travel romance you have to be able to suspend belief, otherwise it won't work…this may have been asking too much suspension of belief for me.  I feel there were too many plot holes that felt like she was trying to keep you in the dark about what was really going on in 1912, that left me confused, even after I got to the end.  I don't know if it was is an editing thing or what???  I also felt that things were a little too contrived to be palpable.

 

The one aspect of this story that I loved was the romance between Serene and Étienne, their chemistry was quite hot.   I really adored Étienne.  Serene, well, I liked her most of the time, but she had her witchy moments.  But the dynamic of these two, offset by Étienne's siblings, Livingston and Nathalie were what kept me reading despite the issues I had with it. 

 

Apparently, there are more books coming, I'm not sure if it's one or two that will continue the story between Serene and Étienne.  Knowing there are more books helps the ending make a lot more sense, though.  I have a feeling I will read the next one, in hopes that they will help this story come together.
