INTENSITY (Chronicles of Nick Book 8) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Genre: Sci Fi & Fantasy, Teens & YA

Publication Date: September 5, 2017

IMG_3306

IMG_9760It’s a demon-eat-demon world for Nick Gautier. Just when he thinks he’s finally gotten a handle on how not to take over the world and destroy it, Death returns with an all-star cast that is determined to end the Malachai reign and lineage forever. Worse? Death and War have found the one, true enemy Nick can’t find, and even if he did, it’s one he could never bring himself to banish or kill.

Now framed for murders he hasn’t committed, and surrounded by new friends who might be turncoats, Nick is learning fast how his father went down in flames.

The heat in New Orleans is rising fast, and Nick’s threat-level has gone into a whole new level of intensity. He’s learning fast that when War and Death decide to battle, they don’t take prisoners. They don’t negotiate. And they’re both immune to his biting sarcasm and Cajun charm. To win this, he will have to embrace a new set of powers, but one wrong step, and he will belong to the side of Darkness, forever.

INTENSITY is the perfect conclusion to an epic series. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Chronicles of Nick series is a Young Adult series featuring Nick who is in her Dark-Hunter Series. I don’t usually pick up YA books, but this is a great series for teens as well as adults and there are a lot of characters from the Dark-Hunter series in the Chronicles of Nick series so I highly recommend reading it if you’re a Dark-Hunter  fan. Nick is one of my favorite characters in Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series and the Chronicles of Nick tells his story up to the beginning of his life shown in the Dark-Hunter series. It’s emotional, funny, and packed full of action and suspense. I loved this series and can’t wait for Nick’s adult book in the Dark-Hunter series and the spin-off series, Shadows of Fire, that I think will pick up where INTENSITY ended. Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master storyteller and I’m always get swept up in the worlds she creates when I pick up her books. I love them!

Shadows of Fire™

#1 New York Times and international bestselling saga continues…

The world of the Dark-Hunters® is unlike anything you’ve every seen before. It’s dark. It’s gritty. It’s dangerous…

And it’s a whole lot of unexpected action and snarky comebacks.

My name is Cyprian Malachai and I should have never been born. I know it. My mother knows it and most of all, my father, the Ambrose Malachai is more than aware of it. Every creature under the sun is out to end me.

But I don’t go down easy. Anyone who’s ever fought a Malachai knows that fact.

My father thinks that he’s heard the last of me . . .

He hasn’t. Our war is only on an interlude. It’s about to heat up and I have a massive grudge to settle. One that is far from over . . .

~*~*~*~

**Please note that Shadows of Fire is a four book continuation of the Chronicles of Nick®, and is a Young Adult spin-off series from the Dark-Hunter® novels. If you’d like to read the ones with more adult content, they are listed under the Dark-Hunter series section.
The manga listed is for ages 14 and up.

~*~*~*~

**Note to Dark-Hunter fans

The Chronicles of Nick *is* Nick’s real and true past. There is a huge surprise (several actually) in the series that I don’t want to spoil, but when you read them, everything you think is an inconsistency will make perfect sense to you. More than that, you will understand exactly why Nick is the way he is and why he continues to hate Acheron the way he does.

Remember the one promise that I try to keep in every book: Just when you think you know the truth about a character or event, you find out that things are seldom what they seem. Nick is one of those characters. There’s a lot more to our little Cajun than what you’ve seen to date.

There are many, many secrets you’ll learn about a lot of characters, including Cherise and especially Jaden and Jared. Just hold on… you ain’t seen nothing yet 🙂
There are 8 books in the Nick Chronicles.

  1. Infinity
  2. Invincible
  3. Infamous
  4. Inferno

There are 4 books in the Shadows of Fire series:

  1. Heart of Venom
  2. Will of Iron
  3. Fist of Fire
  4. Eye of Stone

Then there will have a separate trilogy of adult books to finish off the story arc.

Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE by Jill Shalvis

CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE: A Heartbreaker Bay Novel by Jill Shalvis

Publication Date: September 26, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

ChasingChristmasEve.jpgMeet cute…

Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.

Make merry…

Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself… just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spencer immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?

…and hope for a miracle.

Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I loved this fun little romance. Colbie and Spence were both so easy to care about – along with all their friends that I’ve come to know in the past books. You can read this as a stand-alone, but why miss out on the fun? It made me smile, laugh, swoon, tear-up and also fan myself on the steamy pages. An enjoyable early season read.

Excerpt

Spence drew in a deep, shuddering breath that wasn’t much steadier than hers and pulled off his now crooked glasses. “Hang on a second.” He tossed them aside. “I need to check on something.”
“What?” she asked warily.
Once again he slowly drew her in, his eyes heated and focused on hers, infusing her with some of his calm. “I want to see if this is how it’s going to be.”
“How what’s going to be?” she whispered.
“This.”
His kiss started out just as slow and thoughtful as the first, all careful control. But when his tongue touched hers, control flew straight out the window.

Review: THE NEGOTIATOR (Harbor City) by Avery Flynn

IMG_9691

THE NEGOTIATOR (A Hot Romantic Comedy) (Harbor City) by Avery Flynn

Publication Date: April 24, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Comedy

Synopsis

IMG_9683Wanted: Personal Buffer
Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.

Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a “buffer” from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn’t need a waiting room filled with “candidates” to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shoos his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancé…

This “free-spirit” might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pitbull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he’s agreed to give up Friday nights for reality TV, his Saturdays for flea markets (why buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for “date nights” (aka panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday?

Yup, she’s just screwing with him. Good thing she’s got this non-negotiable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I loved this witty romance filled with enough sexual tension to keep me glued to the pages. Smart, sexy and so much fun. Sawyer and Clover are proof that supposed opposites attract, and in fun ways. All the characters are believable and the banter pulled me in so that I felt a part of it all. Loved it.

About the Author

imageAvery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Review & Giveaway: GOING DARK (The Lost Platoon) by Monica McCarty

IMG_9620

GOING DARK (The Lost Platoon, Book 1) by Monica McCarty

Publication Date: September 5, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_9622The members of a top secret SEAL Team can’t keep their passion under wraps in this thrilling contemporary romantic suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Monica McCarty.

Like Rome’s Lost Legion, a SEAL platoon goes on a mission and vanishes without a trace.

After walking into a trap on a covert op in Russia, the men from top secret SEAL Team Nine are presumed dead. Not knowing whom they can trust, and with war hanging in the balance, the survivors must go dark and scatter around the globe.

Marine ecologist Annie Henderson joins her new boyfriend on a trip to the Western Isles of Scotland to protest a hazardous offshore drilling venture. When she realizes that she may be swept up in something far more dangerous than she’d intended, there is only one man she can turn to. . . .

She and the mysterious but sexy dive boat captain haven’t exactly gotten off to the best start, but something about his quiet confidence makes her think that he’s the kind of man she can depend on. Because he’s gruff and guarded, she can tell Dan Warren has secrets. But she could never imagine how high the stakes are for him to keep his cover, even as he risks everything to protect her. . . .

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

This story is fast paced and exciting. I liked both characters instantly, even though I didn’t have a lot in common with either one. I liked that they were almost polar opposites, and yet respected each other’s views with an open mind. Their disagreements never got to the “that’s enough already” stage for me, and I liked that. The romance part was smoking hot and blended well into the story, smoothly ebbing and flowing with the danger all around them. I can’t wait to read the next installment to find out what happens with them and the rest of the lost platoon! I loved it.

About the Author

Monica McCarty is the bestselling author of The Arrow, The Raider, The Hunter, the Highlander trilogy, the Campbell trilogy, and more. Her interest in the Scottish clan system began in the most unlikely of places: a comparative legal history course at Stanford Law School. After a short but enjoyable stint as an attorney, she realized that her career as a lawyer paired with her husband’s transitory life as a professional baseball player was not the best match. So she traded in her legal briefs for Scottish historical romances with sexy alpha heroes. She now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and their two children.

Spotlight, Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: ON THE CHASE (Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit) by Katie Ruggle

IMG_9572

ON THE CHASE (Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit Series, Book 2) by Katie Ruggle

Publication Date: September 5, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

image003Injured in the line of duty,

His orders are simple:

Stay alive.

But when a frightened woman bursts into his life, Hugh and his K9 companion have no choice but to risk everything to keep her safe.

The sole witness to a horrific crime, Kaylee Ramay flees to the Colorado Rockies to start a new life. There she becomes Grace, a dog kennel employee desperately trying to avoid attention—especially from dangerously attractive K9 Officer Hugh Murdoch.

Because Hugh is tall, dark…and nothing but trouble.

Hugh is anxious to get back in the field after an act of heroism left him warming the bench. Until then, he and his K9 partner Lexi spend their hours teasing the town’s mysterious newcomer. But when their simmering attraction is nearly cut short by a sniper’s bullet, Hugh’s mystery woman must come clean about the secrets she keeps…

Or both of them will pay the price.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I love Katie Ruggle’s stories, the characters are fun and realistic no matter what situation they’re in. Hugh is, of course, handsome, and he has a sense of humor that is not over the top. I wasn’t sure about Kaylee at first, but she grew on me fast. Together they made a fun couple to read about. It was a fast-paced, action filled suspense, with enough romantic tension to keep me turning the pages for more. I’m liking this new series.

Excerpt

“How’s your head?”
His smile dimmed just slightly before returning to full wattage. “Still where it’s supposed to be. I might have lost a few brain cells, but there were plenty to spare.”
Grace rolled her eyes. Of course he would joke about almost dying. Forget that she hadn’t been able to sleep or think about anything else for the past five days since Jules told her about the explosion. She didn’t know why she cared, why she worried about him, why the idea of him almost dying made her heart hurt. It wasn’t like they were friends. Every time they saw each other, they argued. Even now, seeing Hugh all happy and smirky and healthy-looking, she felt her worry turn to annoyance. “Have you found out who planted the bomb yet?”
“Can’t talk about an ongoing investigation,” he said lightly. “You know what we can talk about, though?”
“What?” she asked warily. He was just a few steps away, and she realized that she’d been moving closer without even realizing it. Stupid feet. Don’t they know he’s an ass?
Hugh gestured at her soaked coveralls. “This incredibly fashion-forward look you have going here.”
Her finger hovered close to the trigger. So maybe he’d lose a little skin if she gave him a quick spray. Really, it was what he deserved. With a great effort of will, she kept the washer down at her side.
“You like it?” Posing with her free hand on her hip, she gave him her best sultry-model face. If she had to be stuck wearing wet coveralls and too-large rubber boots, then she was going to own the look.
He chuckled, although his gaze heated as he took her in. “Oh yeah. It’s kennel chic.”
“Right.” Dropping the pose, she frowned at him, trying to figure out why he was looking at her like he wanted to eat her. There was nothing appealing about her at the moment. She’d known this even before she glanced down again, confirming the horrid state of her appearance. “I miss wearing pretty things.”
Immediately, his gaze sharpened. “Pretty things? Like what you used to wear to work? What did you do before in…Bangor?”
That slight pause reminded her that he was a cop—a cop who thought she was a liar. Tipping her head, she gave him a flirty look. “You want to know something?”
“Yeah. What?” He moved a half step closer, his inquisitive expression shifting to something a little…hungrier.
She smiled and leaned toward him. His gaze dropped to her lips. “I’m beginning to understand why someone would want to blow you up.”
To her surprise, he laughed. It made him even more stupidly attractive than usual, and Grace found herself unable to look away. “I’m told that a lot.”
Thrown off guard, she scrambled for a witty retort. “Maybe you should, you know, work on that.”
“Work on fixing my personality?” He leaned against the wall, and Grace gave a silent sigh. It looked as if he was settling in for a chat. As much as she welcomed an interruption from kennel cleaning, Hugh wasn’t her first pick. Whenever he was around, she felt strange, unsettled, almost jittery. He’d pop into her head at odd times, and just the thought of him sent a rush of adrenaline through her veins. It was…uncomfortable.
She realized that he was watching her with a tiny, knowing smile, and she tried to remember what they’d been talking about. “Whatever.” Grace figured that would cover most potential topics. “Why are you here?”
“Otto’s working with his latest project.”
“That explains why he’s here. Why are you here?”
He smirked. The man was impossible to offend. “I was bored, so I tagged along. It’s a good thing, too. We haven’t talked much lately. I was going to stop by to watch Tattered Hearts with you again, but Theo gave me a little lecture about the importance of keeping my lockpicks in my pants.”
“What a shame,” she said flatly, proud of herself for not giving in and smiling. It was hard to resist Hugh’s easy charm. “Well, this was a nice chat. We’ll have to do it again sometime…or not.”
His grin grew, and it became harder to keep her deadpan expression in place. “Oh, our visit isn’t over. Otto won’t be done for a while yet. So tell me, Not-Grace, how long did you live in Bangor?”
“Almost two years.”
“And before that?”
“Austin, Texas.”
“For how long?”
“Eight months.”
“Before that?”
“Portland.”
“Maine or Oregon?”
“Oregon.”
“Do you ever tell the truth?”
“Why do you think I’m lying?”
He smiled at her—a long, slow, easy, predatory baring of his teeth. “I can tell when someone’s lying. It’s my superpower.”
Grace shivered and immediately hoped he hadn’t noticed. By his expression, however, he’d seen it. He looked like a smug housecat, ready to pounce on a trapped mouse. “It’s none of your business. So I’ve moved around a lot. That’s not a crime. I haven’t done anything wrong.”
“Then why are you lying?”
“I told you.” To her annoyance, she couldn’t hold his gaze. Turning her head, she stared at one of the kennels. “I’m not lying. Go away. I have to get back to work.”
She started spraying down the kennels again. The entire time, she felt his gaze on the back of her neck, as hot as sunburn on her skin. It made her crazy that he could bring out such a reaction in her, when she was just a suspect to him. Every time Hugh was nearby, her skin buzzed and her blood flowed faster, and when he left, she felt let down and lonely. He was a cop, and an annoying one at that. Why did she allow him to affect her like this? When she reached the end of the row, she couldn’t take it anymore. Turning, she huffed, “Would you please just…”
He was gone.
She glanced around, but she was alone. Moving over to the door, she looked out and saw Hugh limping slightly as he made his way to the squad car.
It was her turn to watch him. Crazily enough, she felt slightly deflated now that he’d left. Shaking off her idiotic thoughts, she firmed her jaw and turned back to the kennels. Forget Hugh, she told herself firmly. There’s poo to clean.
Even so, she couldn’t resist a final glance out the open door.

Review: DRAGONSWORN (Dark-Hunter Novels) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

DRAGONSWORN (Dark-Hunter Novels) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publication Date: August 1, 2017

IMG_0606There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . except Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin.

Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to stand by and watch him take everything she loves from her again.

This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.

She is the unstoppable force . . .

When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she’s unleashed total Armageddon. If she can’t find some way to control the dragon before it’s too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is world annihilation?

Love it! Falcyn is my new favorite dragon in this series! DRAGONSWORN is part of the Dragons Rising Trilogy in the Dark-Hunters Series. If you’re new to the series I would recommend you start at the beginning to fully enjoy it. Each book has a HEA ending for different couples but the series needs to be read in order to fully appreciate the characters and series plot. If you just want the dragons I’d recommend starting with SON OF NO ONE. I would also recommend reading the Lords of Avalon Series that Sherrilyn Kenyon writes as Kinley MacGregor because the dragons and the Avalon world are in DRAGONSWORN. DRAGONSWORN is Medea, Stryker’s daughter and Apollo’s granddaughter and Falcyn’s story. I didn’t like Medea in the previous books and viewed her as one of the villains, but Sherrilyn Kenyon has a way of turning a villain into a favorite character and hero. Falcyn and Medea were perfect for each other! Their story was full of heart wrenching emotions, danger, romance and it revealed a lot of new secrets. I need to make a cheat sheet to reference all the secrets.  Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master storyteller and if I had to choose one author’s books to read for the rest of my life I’d choose her books. I always discover some new information I missed when I re-read her series and they never get old or predictable. She always delivers new twists and turns that keep the series exciting. I highly recommend anything she writes and can’t want for the next release!

Review & Giveaway: SPELLBINDER (Moonshadow Book 2) by Thea Harrison

IMG_0133

SPELLBINDER (Moonshadow Book 2) by Thea Harrison

Publication Date: July 18, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

IMG_0123From author Thea Harrison comes the latest story in the New York Times bestselling Moonshadow trilogy….

Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.

When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.

One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.

Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.

But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge…

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I loved SPELLBINDER! This is the second book in Thea Harrison’s Moonshadow Trilogy that is set in the Elder Races World. You don’t need to read the Elder Races Series before starting this one, but I would recommend reading book one in the Moonshadow Trilogy, MOONSHADOW, before starting book two. Each book features a different couple and can be read as standalone though. SPELLBINDER is a Morgan, a sorcerer/ werewolf and Sidonie, a human musician’s book. Morgan was one of the villains in book one and even faced off with Dragos in the Elder Races Series, but he’s definitely hero material in this book. I love a good villain to hero storyline. SPELLBINDER was full of danger, mystery, magic and smoking hot romance. Thea Harrison is a master world builder and I loved her take on Avalon! I highly recommend this exciting and unique paranormal series. I’m obsessed with this series and I can’t wait for the next book!

Review: THE HUNTING GROUNDS (Hidden Sins #2) by Katee Robert

IMG_9272

THE HUNTING GROUNDS (Hidden Sins #2) by Katee Robert

Publication Date: July 25, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_9266For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.

Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.

For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.

As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! I loved this fast-paced mystery. Serial killer, hot FBI agent, Glacier National Park….it had it all. Even though Maggie seemed a little whiney at times, I still liked her. Vic was solid, sexy and caring; a nice combination that worked well with the hot romance. The story never let up and kept me glued to the pages wondering who the killer was, and how the HEA would come about. I can’t wait for the next one.

About the Author

IMG_9265New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Review: WICKED KISS (Realm Enforcers Book 4) by Rebecca Zanetti

IMG_9190

WICKED KISS (Realm Enforcers Book 4) by Rebecca Zanetti

Publication Date: July 4, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

SynopsisIMG_9177Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far…

Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . . .

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

I love this series and was so excited to get my hands in Adam’s book. Adam is my favorite Dunne brother! I just love him! WICKED KISS is the fourth book in Rebecca Zanetti’s Realm Enforcers series. The series is a paranormal series with witches, shifters, vampires and demons and focuses on the Dunne family of witches. The Realm Enforcers series is a spinoff series from the Dark Protectors series that focused on the vampires in the same paranormal world. You don’t need to read the Dark Protectors series before picking up this series, but I highly recommend both series. I love them and the Dark Protectors series would make a great binge read. I recommend reading each series in order, but each book can be read as a standalone. WICKED KISS was action packed, full of danger and smoking hot romance. It kept me riveted and I couldn’t put it down. I was already in love with Adam before picking up this book and fell even more in love with him while reading his story. Victoria was just perfect for him! Their banter was fun and the romance was hot. Rebecca Zanetti is one of my favorite authors because she’s a great storyteller that always delivers an exciting love story. I highly recommend anything she writes and I loved WICKED KISS!

FUEL FOR FIRE (Black Knights Inc. Book 10) by Julie Ann Walker

Publication Date: July 4, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

9781492608783-300RGBNew York Times and USA Today bestseller Julie Ann Walker delivers red-hot romantic suspense in Fuel for Fire!

Dagan Zoelner has always had his eye on spunky CIA agent Chelsea Duvall. When a mission throws them together, this could be his only chance to win her heart for good.

Dagan Zoelner has made three huge mistakes
The first two left blood on his hands.
The third left him wondering…what if?
What if he had told the woman of his dreams how he felt before his world fell apart

Spitfire CIA agent Chelsea Duvall has always had a thing for bossy, brooding Dagan. It’s just as well that he’s never given her a second look, since she carries a combustible secret about his past that threatens to torch their lives…

~*~*~*~

Another exhilarating ride with the Black Knights Inc. It had all the camaraderie, constant changing danger and smoking hot romance that you come to expect in this series. Chelsea was very relatable and realistic – which made her fun to read. Dagan is of course, hot, alpha and gorgeous, but he has a tender and fun side that drew you in. Together, they were heartwarming couple. I loved it and couldn’t read it fast enough.
