When God whispers, the wise listen. In this short story, a busy husband and father fails to heed the quiet voice of the Lord. I doing so, he experiences the loving admonition of God whispering loudly.

My Thoughts

I was born and raised in a Christian home with parents very involved in our local church, my father was the bus minister and youth minister and my mother taught a Sunday school class and Awana class. Growing up in a Christian home you always hear about God and Jesus on a daily basis.

Many continue on their path with the Lord and many walk away or wander off the path God has for each of us.

This book is a quick dose of reality. From the very start you are drawn into this family's life. And through the father's eyes you see how God had worked in his wifes life and his childrens lives. And then you learn how God worked in his life without him realising it.

How in one quick moment, one horrible accident, how very much this families life could have changed and how God used this incident to show the father what a great life he really had and how he had always been there. How the father just wasn't listening. God was truly whispering loudly.

This book moved me to tears, touched my heart and my soul and I to realize maybe I haven't been listening as closely as I should be. Great book...

Do or Die...

In a world that has been divided amongst the Hunter race and the Warrior, prisoners who have fallen prey to King Cyrus' decrees are forced into the arena to fight until death. Winner is granted mercy and privilege to see another sunrise. Death unto the weak. In an attempt to get back at everyone who has ever shut her out, seventeen year-old Princess Echo becomes another victim, dragging Ayden, her forbidden love, along in a race to freedom, to find out who she really is, and to put a world that has been swallowed by lies back together again.

In the first installment of The Bleeding Heart Trilogy, life becomes a dangerous game of kill or be killed, love or let go. When death threatens the forbidden love of an unlikely couple and they are forced to do the unthinkable, to what extent will they go to be together?

My Thoughts

I was asked by a friend of mine "Angels With Attitude Book Reviews" if I would be interested in reading a book for an author friend of hers and giving an honest review. First of "HELLO" I love to read so bring it on, I downloaded the book and went right to reading and am I so glad I did and now I sit and wait for book 2 to come out :)

What a great book, I love how she went back and forth between both main characters so throughout the entire book you feel like you are getting the full picture, the full story as both Echo and Ayden are telling the story, not just one character. You get to see and feel what each of them are going through during the story.

I can't imagine growing up as a princess, what a life that must be, but to grow up as a princess and feel like you don't fit in, don't belong, that your life isn't what it should be and you belong somewhere else - I could never imagine until being sucked into this book and through Echo's eyes I could feel how lonely, sad, angry and then for a brief time happy, joyful, the moments of freedom and love.

We all live in a society that daily we see someone struggling, and unless you have been through it yourself can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to be poor, fighting every day to survive. Welcome to Ayden's world. Living in a society that dictates when you can come and go from where you live. When you can come and go into another village that is better off than your own. Having to work endless hours, scratch and claw your way around. Having to humble yourself, be looked down upon and talked down to just to survive. This was Aydens world, between the bullies, his alcoholic worthless father, sick mother almost on death's door at times and two younger siblings hew as practically raising on his own and a good friend Feven who came and went as she pleased but took advantage of Ayden as she saw fit.

Ayden and Echo's lives collide in the palace and Ayden lashes out after getting in trouble thinking she is a spoiled rich brat just like all the other royals. Little does he know how very wrong he is. Echo is drawn immediately into his violet eyes and every day tries to find a way to get to know him, be near him, with him. After bumping into him she beings to realize even more how very different she is from her family.

Echo is being forced into an arranged marriage, the man Noah she is set to marry loves the women and Echo is very aware of his wandering ways. Her mother, father and sisters tell her this is her duty for the good of the kingdom. She loathes Noah, detests being around him and wants nothing more but to get away.

And with Ayden's help she does just that, she gets away. And though their time is brief, she is happy, they are happy, its almost like living in a dream world and having to pinch herself to make sure it is real. Until it all comes crashing in and they are forced to fight one another to the death for their very life.

But tables turn, and she learns she isn't who she has believed she was all her life, events change her, her life and her pending future - and now I wait for book two.

I have never been drawn to a character like I have been to Echo and Ayden their plight is one I look forward to watching grow and I hope they get their happy ending.

The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts—a distraction Sam cannot afford.

As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career—and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby, or will ambition, greed and lies prove fatal?

My Thoughts
Book 5 in the Fatal Series and I am jonesing for the next book to come out. Nick and Sam are hot in this book. As they are enjoying newlywed bliss learning more about each others likes and building their lives together.

The story line is as always awesome with the death of a very high ranking officials wife and a missing baby the plot is thick and Sam and her homicide team are knee deep in it, of course with the help of an FBI agent she would rather not have to deal with and who Nick thinks is into his wife, little does Sam know one of Sam's team members feels the same way.

While Sam is dealing with this new head scratching crime, she gets involved in another incident and as typical is hurt but the outcome is "kick ass", and Nick's career is begining to really heat up as he prepares for the speech of a lifetime.

Scotty comes to a decision on living with Sam and Nick and it turns their world upside down. And Sam comes to another decision regarding having a child of their own. McBride and Arnold dig back into her fathers unsolved cold case and confront Sam with what they find which brings Sam and her father together again about this topic - I wont say how that ends but as always its good.

I have read a lot of series in the past but this is by far the best, strong female & male lead detective thriller, political crime thriller, romance combination I have ever read and is by far my all time 5 star favorite. Way to go Marie - you are a Force to be reckoned with.

My Thoughts

What a great collection of four short stories by Samantha Holt. What a great author.

I really loved each story all hot and steamy and erotic and each so very different.

What would it be like to prove your love to the one you are meant to be with in one night. What would you do, what would you say?

Katerina and Guy are celebrating their wedding. An arrangement made by her father to a man she thought didnt like her. Little does she know Guy thinks she doesnt like him. But once they retire for the night they both quickly learn how very wrong they each were. The passion sparks and in one night the learn how very much they love each other.

Forced by her father into marrying Naill a man from a vlan she grew up hating but her father believed would end the war betwern the clans Anna was resigned to the fact it would be an unhappy alliance. But later when trapped with Naill on the ramparts Anna and Naill both quickly learn how very right they are for each other. Their passion ignights and the cold night soon heats up.

Katherine and James are best friends having grown up together and she shares with him how she longs for more than just excitement and adventure but dark and dangerous. As night falls and she retires for the night a stranger awaits her in her chambers and quickly brings her to the very edge. As she soon learns her best friend loved her as much as she loved him.

Sara doesnt want to be married to someone she doesnt know. As she sneaks off into the night with plans to meet a girlfriend and run away to France a mysterious stranger is waiting for her. He aids her in her escap but little does she know he was aware of her plans and planned to use them to his advantage and show her how much he loves her and to win her love. He's loved her for years. And in one facinating and dangerous night she too falls in love.

Each of these are down right hot and passionate. Each one completely different yet equally etotic. Steamy from start to finish.

Genre: Historical Romance



Accustomed to running wild with her Lycan brothers in the swamps of Louisiana, Miss Liviana Mayeux is shipped off to London where Lady Hadley offers to sponsor and assist her. Before she knows it, Vivi finds herself in the middle of a pack of English wolves who are all vying for her attention. But Lady Hadley's handsome son Grayson is determined to keep her out of trouble. If only he knew how...
My Thoughts and Review

Always looking forward to reading Lydia Dares books I do enjoy them and love this series.

I enjoyed this read as the characters were a lot of fun to read about.Grayson being a black sheep of the family so to speak .Then there is Liviana the feisty werewolf with a tart tongue.Both character's give as good as they get with there banner of words they are well matched opponents for one another.

Grayson and Liviana meet when Grayson and his mother are paying a call to a neighbor. Liviana was sent to her grand-father from America by her father forcing her to become a lady and finally settle down and marry giving up here carefree lifestyle and wayward ways. Liviana will not going willingly and so the adventure begins.

From the very first meeting between Liviana and Grayson you sense there chemistry that they have between them.The thing is that Liviana is most bold and lets Grayson know that she knows exactly what he is giving him a total shock and setting him of guard.And in return she shows him a marking on her person letting him know exactly what she is.The playing field is now leveled !

These two have incredible chemistry and sexual tension between them yet knowing nothing will ever become of it as her grandfather will never approve of the match even if they acted on there feelings there pending romance would bed oomed from the get go.

I enjoyed this story a lot.The characters made you laugh quiet a lot throughout the story making this story a fun read.I do however have a couple of things that I did not like though . One of them is the fact that Liviana mother left England because of the rigid society she lived in yet Liviana's  father is now sending his daughter to England to experience those same constraints society puts on women making it no less then a prison .And the very one reason her mother left to go to America in the first place. I just wanted to smack him! What the heck was he thinking?Was he trying to break her spirit and her self worth ?

My only other complaint is that I felt the romance between the couple when it finally did happened that it was a bit rushed.The couple had gone to great pains to fight the attraction between them for so long that I expected to be so wowed and I expected to see an explosive encounter  when it did happen that all and all  it would have been worth the pain and suffering this couple had to endure to finally be together.But no fireworks ...

But, the over all story was a pleasant read.  Liviana made this story engrossing as she was just so feisty and full of vigor that you new she was a worthy adversary and she would somehow find a way out of her situation.As as for the dreamy good for nothing Rake Grayson  you feel his pain as he does not feel worthy of Liviana as he feels he has nothing to really offer her .Even though he feels all of this he can't stop feeling predatory toward her and it may be the down fall for both of them.

We meet Liviana brothers who stir up the pot  making the story even more livlier.And the pages are graced by past characters which I so enjoy from story to story.Be sure to read the entire series along with this current story you won't be disappointed it was a fantastic series ! Loved it ! And as always looking forward to the next book....

Recommend read to all !
