My One True Cowboy, Soraya Lane

I enjoyed this romance between a broken warrior and a former friend. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. Add a broken warrior dog to it and it is even more endearing. There was a whole lot of hurting and healing going on in this story. While this is not for the under 18 readers, it does have a lot of heart in it and I love the way it all played out. I've given it a 4.5* rating, and encourage you to read how they worked their way through there problems.

The moment our lips met my heart struck my breastbone with a sonic boom. Every molecule in me came online. It was as if my body had been on an extended blackout and suddenly a generator had kicked in, a massive voltage surge. A switch flipped inside of me and I went from off to on, from zero to a hundred.


The kiss marked the difference between before and now, activating my will to live beyond existence’s basic functions. I was no longer breathing for the sake of surviving, but rather getting high on the heady scent of Jade, gorging on her exotic flavors, getting a fix on a woman who had proven she had all the makings of a dangerously addictive fix…for me.
Jesus fucking Christ. This wasn’t happening, couldn’t be happening, not here, not now, not with this woman. This was wrong, for the mission, for me. And yet this was also right, so right I couldn’t stop it, so pure and exquisite that it demolished the logic that usually ruled me, bulldozed right over my carefully constructed defenses and blew my shields into splinters.


I seized on her lips. I drank her up as if I had a right to flirt with pleasure and happiness. Good, so good. She tasted like chocolate and salted caramel, wholesome and true.
Her mouth responded to me, eager, passionate. Our tongues entwined in a mutual exploration that unleashed the storm within, joy and hope I thought I’d never feel again, and lust, a hunger so raw and violent that it roared through my veins and threatened to destroy not only my control, but my life as I knew it.


Images flashed in my mind, visual effects of the emotions jarring me. Jade, cool under fire. Solid. Reliable. True. Jade, calm, smart and composed as she confronted Kumbuyo. She hadn’t lost it once, not even when that son of a bitch went at her. She was as brave as they came, bold, daring, fearless. The memory of her standing half-naked under the moonlight had me throbbing with need. She was a woman built for a warrior, a warrior worth fighting for; a goddess who’d stepped out of some ancient African legend to right my fucked-up world.


But I couldn’t endanger my mission and I couldn’t betray all that had been entrusted to me. I was trained for duty, which meant I had to pull out of this catastrophic trajectory, now.


It was hard, maybe even impossible. I was trapped in the feel of her mouth. I forced myself to think rationally. This was Jade Romo for Christ’s sake, the woman who had the potential to out me and destroy everything I’d built, including the reserve. While she was here, she was also my responsibility. Another thought hit me, one that killed the joy in me. She’d been seconds away from being raped and moments away from being killed. If something had happened to her under my watch, I’d never forgive myself.


How I ripped my mouth away from hers, I’ll never know. It took all my willpower. My senses reeled. When her eyelids lifted, her eyes glittered with questions and her hand hovered over her mouth, as if her lips stung as much as mine did.


“No, negative, we’re not doing this,” I muttered, mostly to myself. “We can’t. We won’t.”

Wounded Warriors, Wounded Wifes
Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife: Not Just Surviving But Thriving - Barbara K McNally

Title: Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife: Not Just Surviving But Thriving
Author: Barbara K. McNally
Publisher: Koehler Books

Rating: Five

"Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife: Not Just Surviving But Thriving" by Barbara K. McNally

My Thoughts...

Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife was a very interesting and courageous read that really is out there to help any combat veterans and their wives. The way this author shares some extraordinary stories that have been faced by many military families 'especially for those who have had to shift their daily lives and even became the caretaker.' This novel is definitely a book for military members, especially to those who have had to shift their lives ad become the caretaker.' I found this a excellent read as one meet wives and partners who drew upon their inter strengths as they 'share an intimate tale of reuniting, recovering and rebuilding their lives.' What a collection in this reads of 'some personal stories of the aftermath of war on the home front that offered some good resources of advice and hope.' With this author [Barbara McNally] who was a physical therapist witnessed a man who had jumped off a bridge inspired her to find out more about 'PTS and its effects on those who have participated in war' and what all she found out was truly something definitely needed for the wives of those wounded military survivors. Ms. McNally's treatment plan SPA [Support, Purpose, Appreciation] would bring these [20]women together as a retreat giving them a day away for the caregiving role where many were able to vent with others who had similar situations. Some of these stories had some happy ending while others are still being worked on. In the end there was a list of nonprofit and charitable agencies out there to help these 'wounded warriors.' In the end I found "Wounded Warrior, Wounded Wife" offering not only advice but hope not only to our warriors but to their families understand. This was definitely a read that will give the reader especially a military family a better knowledge of what challenges that many families have had to face when a love one has returned home injured from war and even more so that the general population need to hear.

Book Review for The Highland Chieftain ( The Murray's) by Hannah Howell
Highland Chieftain - Hannah Howell
Highland Chieftain
by Hannah Howell
5 stars
Reviewed by : Angels

Format : Kindle Edition
Published by: Zebra
Source: Purchased Copy

Gene: Historical Romance  

The Murrays are back in this thrilling new tale from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell . . .

Responsible for protecting her younger siblings from their abusive father, Bethoc Matheson is in no position to rescue another soul in Scotland. Yet when she sees a bleeding man on the verge of drowning, that’s exactly what she does, securing him safely in a cave where she can return day after day to tend to his wounds.
Sir Callum MacMillan can scarcely believe such a slight lass as Bethoc could save him from the grasp of death. But he knows the telltale marks of an angry fist on her skin, and he knows she has the soul of a fighter within her feminine frame. Raised to be a protector of the weak by his Murray clansman, Callum would prefer to be the one saving her—and save her, he will. If he can first survive the treacherous attack that led him into her irresistible arms . . .
Praise for Hannah Howell and her Highland novels…

“Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or colorfully as Hannah Howell.” —Publishers Weekly“Expert storyteller Howell pens another Highland winner.” —RT Book Reviews
Our Review

First let me start if by saying that I just love Hannah's novels and she is on my auto buy list regardless what stories she writes.I have been reading  her novels for at least 25 years or more now and will continue reading her works as long as she is writing stories.

As always I enjoy reading about all those hunky highlanders.I have followed and read all about that delightful Murray family so any hint of them being in any current novel I am in.

This was a delightful read.I just love all the good characters.I thought that the two main characters Bethoc and the Laird had a great chemistry together.The plot of this story is not very involved with a lot of twists and turns but has enough going on to keep your interest.I love a novel when they have a tortured hero but in this story each main character can really relate to each other as they share a similar past.

I always have a favorite character to favor and in this story I would have to choose Bethoc. Why ? She just is an amazing person on the inside as well as out. With Bethoc growing up in an abusive household it would have you thinking that she would have been a hardened distant cold person but she was just the complete opposite. Bethoc had a big loving heart and a wealth of understanding for those all around her.I just love reading about her especially when she was giving herself a pep talk every time she starts to feel sorry for herself had me laughing out loud.

Bethoc was the perfect person to heal the heart of her wounded warrior.She was like sunshine to his darkness.Meeting Laird MacMillain was the best thing for both of these characters.It felt like fate stepped in to bring each of them into each other's lives for a very specific purpose.

If your looking for an enjoyable light read this story is for you.The story has two plots that need solving.It could be that we will be seeing one of these characters in a future book as there is a question to whether her talent lies along those lines of those in the Murray clan or has just been born with a precious gift.

I look forward to the next novels in this series.I just love reading books in series and following characters book to book especially when new characters are introduced.The Murray Family have been a blast to read about including there friends and family. 

I found all the characters in this story to be enjoyable as well as like-able.My heart strings tugged for both the main characters as well as the other characters as they all had a sadness to them as well as pain and suffering . I loved the unfolding of the story as plots that were solved and the secrets that came to light.I loved seeing this couple slowly fall in love even if some of them didn't even realize they had fallen in love  at all and that love healed a very emotionally wounded warriors heart.
