Book Description

Suspense lights up in every page of this fast-paced blockbuster of thrills! 

When Sloan Booker’s father dies tragically, he has no other option but to give up his job as an FBI agent and take over his family’s vehicle restoration business in Oahu, Hawaii. Giving up his badge is difficult but having Homeland Security and his old boss request the use of his house in a stakeout, spying on his Muslim neighbors who they suspect are terrorists, is just too damn much for a man already frazzled. It makes no difference that they’ve offered him a partner to be in charge of the surveillance… until he meets the gorgeous divorcee.

Special Agent Alia Hawkins might look more like a model than a cop but looks can be deceiving. Not only does she rescue street kids, fights their battles and transports them to safe homes, but since she lived many years in Pakistan and speaks their language, she’s a sought after agent. So far, she’s kept her personal life and job separate. But when Alia’s slimy ex-husband threatens to steal her eight-year-old son, she has no choice but to bring him along on her latest undercover assignment – living with a hotshot, sexy as hell agent as his long lost stepsister. Her life suddenly takes some drastic swerves and she wonders if things will ever slow down.

Book Review

Sloan and Alia's story reads a bit like a Bollywood movie. There's action and intrigue. There's a criminal element to be vary of. A whole bunch of colorful characters, each with their own agenda and quirks. The story flows well from the main plot, and there is of course a bunch of other stuff that keeps happening unexpectedly to keep the reader fully engaged. I also love how current fears about terrorists is dealt with. Not everyone is a terrorist is brought out beautifully in the way Sloan deals with his neighbours.

Enjoyed this latest installation of the series. A great book in the Undercover FBI series by Mimi Barbour. Each book has a complete story and can be read as a stand alone. The stories are not connected.

Book Description

Monica Benton has to leave home, fast. Her parents are planning to marry her off to a man who thinks women belong in the home. It would never work.

Monica is a Suffragette, an amateur sleuth — and a good one. She sees no reason why she can’t join the ranks of the local lawmen, or even become a Texas Ranger, should she choose! 

What will happen when she visits her best friend in Galveston, Texas, only to find herself face-to-face with Gabriel Randall, the handsome leader of the local Texas Ranger unit, whose cases she’s been meddling in?

For the first time, she finds herself knee-deep in territory she has no idea how to navigate, and more than just her life is on the line. She has no idea what to do with an attraction that is getting harder to deny by the day.

Book Review

Monica didn't want to get married and lose her identity. She would rather run away from home and support herself by solving mysteries for people. However her plans to be a detective to make a living run into a spot of trouble when the local bad guy turns his attention towards her for foiling a horse robbery. 

Thankfully the local head ranger is right there to protect her, even if she thinks she can look after herself. Gabriel is not going to let her have the life that Monica envisioned for herself. He's going to give her something better!

Book Description

GRANDMA'S WEDDING QUILTS: Eleven Sweet Western Historical Romance Novellas and Novels from Eleven USA Today Bestselling, Amazon Bestselling, and Award-winning Authors. Grandma Mary's traditional gift to each of her grandchildren: hand-pieced and hand-stitched quilts. Made with love and woven with memories, wisdom, and a family legacy of enduring love.

The summer Meredith turned eighteen was filled with romance and laughter - two young men sought her hand, and she chose the one she thought would make her the happiest. He certainly was the most handsome, and the wealthiest, and could offer her the most pleasant life. But that turned out to be a mistake . . . one she would regret for a very long time. 

In a strange twist of fate, now she's being given a chance to set things right. Will she be able to live down her past, or will her foolishness keep coming back to haunt her and keep her from ever being happy with the man she loves?

Book Review

This is the fourth book in an ongoing series called Grandma's Wedding Quilts. Meredith is Jesse's younger sister and as soon as she turns 18 is swept off her feet by Alex. Unfortunately Luke has always been waiting for her and she never noticed him. That apparently was the mistake. The author tried to bring in domestic violence as a theme and while I am sure it was a reality even back then, the book falls a bit flat compared to the previous books in the series. Am hoping the next one will be better.

Book Description

Welcome to the Fairy Tale Selectory, where the Royals rule and the Underlings clean up after them. 

As a fourth year, seventeen-year-old orphaned Cinderella is all set to graduate as one of the top Underlings. All she has to do is pass her final examinations by entering her given fairy tale and completing it. If she passes, the selectory places her in a post of good standing with one of the Royal families. Those who fail are banished to the Forbidden Forest and never seen again. 
Upon entering her fairy tale, Cinderella is given the job as personal maid to Belinda, the most beautiful Royal in her graduating class. It’s apparent Belinda is meant to marry Henri, King Charming’s son. 
Cinderella gets to work making certain Belinda is dressed in the best gowns and has the most opportunities to spend time with the prince, while keeping the other candidates away from him. The King’s ball is in one month. Cinderella is positive she’ll pass with flying colors if Henri proposes to Belinda before the final chime of the clock at midnight. 
All goes according to plan until Cinderella meets Henri. Undeniable sparks immediately fly between them and she finds herself thinking about him often, even wishing they could be together. But following her heart means failure, and Cinderella doesn’t have that option.

Book Review

An interesting retelling of the traditional fairy tale. There were a few changes to the original story. some worked others didn't. On the whole entertaining enough. I liked the idea of passing a fairly tale by bringing it to a proper conclusion. Robin Hood was not required at all! And the whole reunion thing was a bit too pat. Also the fairy god mother felt wasted...

Book Description

Everything changed on the night of the Olympian Comet.

I’ve always known that I’m a witch. But I didn’t expect to discover that I have a mysterious power unheard of amongst my kind. My best friend Garrett — who I’ve secretly been wanting to become more than a friend — has one of these powers too. 

We know something big is going on. But we didn’t realize that there are ancient creatures searching for us, and that they’ll kill us for what we are… 

The Wrath of the Fury is a short story that takes place in the Elementals universe. It can be read before, during, or after the Elementals series.

Book Review

If you enjoyed the Elementals series and wouldn't mind reading more about demi-gods from that universe, you will enjoy this story. Even if you have not read the series, this is a good standalone short story that may just intrigue you into reading what happened next. I enjoyed revisiting the comet appearance with a different set of witches.

Book Description

Former interior designer and store owner Olivia Livingston followed her brother to Christmas Town, Tennessee two and a half years ago and never looked back. It was the perfect place for purchasing the holiday knickknack shop, All Things Christmas, and an ideal spot for hiding from heartache. Olivia's broken engagement to a Virginia vintner three years before shattered her illusions about love. So when a hot, young architect comes to town to restore the Grand Hotel, Olivia has no qualms about working with him on the project. Nick Claus might be tall, dark and exceedingly handsome--with spectacular blue eyes. But that doesn't mean Olivia's even mildly attracted to the really nice guy, who can totally fill out a pair of jeans. And, seriously? What is the deal with him thinking he can tell when she's been naughty or nice?

Book Review

Olivia has been happy since she shifted back to Christmas town. Her brother is there, she has her own shop, her horse is her baby and she helps with all kinds of volunteer work. She should be very content, but with her friends all recently married and popping out babies, she suddenly realizes that she wants more.

Nick is happy to spend time with his baby sister Sandy as he comes to Christmas Town to work on the old Grand Hotel. His skills as an architect may have brought him to town, but his pull towards Olivia is what's keeping him there. He wonders if she could really be the one who could accept him and his rather unique heritage?

Will she stay once she learns the truth? It's a whole lot of fun reading about how both Nick and Olivia deal with the magic playing havoc with their lives. I love the way Santa's Little Helper gives us clues of what to expect.

This is the third book in the Christmas Town series, but it works well as a stand alone too.

Book Description

Against all odds, Greg and Samantha seemed to have cheated Fate when they escaped Regent Danata. Miraculously, the two Morphids remain bound together, attempting to lead a normal, “human” life, even as fear of the evil woman’s revenge clouds their days.

As Sam and Greg struggle to grow their relationship, she is haunted by memories of Ashby, her Morphid soul mate, and burning questions of the identity of her real parents. As if that wasn’t enough, her untried Morphid instincts fill her with doubt and indecision, taking her once simple life in directions she could never have imagined.

When Greg’s Keeper sense foretells danger, however, they abandon all dreams of normalcy and find no other choice but to flee. Armed with nothing but their Morphid skills, Sam sets their course toward New York City, a place that calls to her deeper instincts. As her Keeper, Greg must follow but knows danger awaits.

Thus begins a quest that will test their bond and may spell the end of all they hold dear. It’s only a matter of time before Regent Danata and chaos storm into their lives again.

Book Review

Sam and Greg continue on their journey after Ashby's supposed death. However there are surprises headed their way. The plans that Danata and Veridan make are likely to keep Sam in danger and Greg needs to stay ready to protect her. Unfortunately his Keeper senses don't work that well when he's infatuated with her every move.

At the onset of danger Sam and Greg run again. This time Sam's calls get her to New York City. Just how is she going to help all these people who have suffered at the hands of the evil Ripper? As she tries to do the best she can, she has no idea that her parents are trying to find her. Not the human parents, but her Morphid ones.

There more than one surprise in the tale and a whole lot of interesting action. Love the way this series is shaping up. Can't wait to read the next book to see how Sam fared with Danata.

Book Description

“I will be transformed into something beautiful, but at what cost?”

Samantha’s life is ordinary, at least until a mysterious, magic-wielding man blows up her car trying to kill her. She escapes by a hair’s breadth, all thanks to an equally mysterious and magical stranger.

Her savior, Greg, is otherworldly in beauty and skill. His presence sends a thrill of knowledge through her, even though they’ve never met. He calls himself her Keeper, a fate-bound servant compelled to protect her at the cost of his life. By the rules of his kind, he’s meant to be just that, except he’s flawed, and he begins to fall for her. This is wrong. Forbidden. Yet, inevitable. But he’s not the only one defying the rules. Samantha is also attracted to him, though she’s unaware anything is wrong with her intense attraction until she morphs and her fate is written in stone.

Nope, she’s not ordinary. In fact, she isn’t even human or allowed to fall in love with who she wants. Guess she’ll have to rethink her plans of being a chef. Culinary school just isn’t the place for people destined to save a dying race.

Book Review

Hidden among humans lives this alien race which came from another realm - the Morphids. They look human but evolve very differently into adults. As they morph they receive from Fate a caste which is symbolized by a mark on their neck. This determines what they will do in life. 

Amazing new world to delve into with magical spells and light auras and so much happening. The main character Sam is unaware that she is a Morphid and when her Keeper Greg shows up and tells her, she's not quite sure she's ready to give up believing that she's human! 

Unfortunately when she's literally fighting to stay alive when attacked by a Sorcerer, she has no choice but to accept his incredible tale. She begins to fall for this guy who will go to any length to save her life, but apparently she's not allowed to even fall in love with him...

Book Description

The Clockwise Collection Finale!

The stress created by Casey's recent split from Nate causes her to trip back in time in a haphazard manner, and not always to the same time! Sometimes she's in 1929 Boston getting more entangled than ever with the mishaps of her new and not-so-helpful friends, and at other times she's back in 1775 trying to make sure the colonists still win the war of Independence!

Will the craziness ever stop? And will she and Nate work out things in time for graduation?

Book Review

For a while there all of Casey's "tripping" in the book had me tripping in my head. The poor thing was really reeling from her break up with Nate and was heading into one messed up time line after another. I'm so glad that she finally found the help she needed to set things straight. (nice touch there by the author, but I'm not going to be handing out a spoiler here).

Although I must admit I was very surprised that after all that she went through when she didn't have Nate, she refused to get back together with him when he did finally come calling. Although I loved the fact that she was so much more confident about her own abilities and had the conviction that she could survive anything on her own.

The book showed just how far Casey had come from being a frightened teen to a mature young woman who could handle anything.

Book Description

Jess Barnes was a rising star in the Information Ministry before she and her crewmates were kidnapped by Xaravian barbarians. She longs for her old life and friends. She can also live without bounty hunters chasing her down in every part of the universe. When one poisons her, Jess is in a race against time to find a cure for the odd condition that sets her heart racing -- made worse by the attention of sexy second-in-command Trazzak. 

Trazzak likes order and rules, but Jessalyn brings total chaos to his life and the Galaxos, with bounty hunters and Alliance spies right behind her. When he starts to uncover the many secrets Jess has buried, Trazzak wonders if he should turn her in for betraying the rebellions... or get a lot closer. 

Jess doesn’t know who to trust, and hardly even trusts herself as she battles bounty hunters, arms dealers, and the poison in her blood. When the Alliance offers her the antidote and her old life back -- in exchange for betraying her crewmates, the Xaravians, and the entire rebellion -- will Jess choose loyalty to her friends and her growing feelings for Trazzak over her own life?

Book Review

The adventures of the Earther women with the Galoxos crew continue with Jess. The cultural attache is actually an intelligence officer. We discovered that fact in the last book of the series when she went to bat for the team wanting to rescue a former colleague. Now she's trying to clear up the bounty on their heads by dealing directly with the Ministry.

She needs to believe that the Minister is corruption free, and that he will save her friends. Unfortunately her meeting with the contact at the ministry makes her a target for bounty hunters. Now her blood is poisoned and she has little time to complete one last mission which can save her friends from a lifetime of harassment. 

She doesn't believe she will survive the poison anyhow. She definitely has no time for love, and certainly not for the Xaravian Trazzak. The story is predictable, but the twists and turns are fun to read. I'm actually happy this one wasn't too focused on the love angle. Book was good. Looking forward to the next in series.

Book Description

When a girl goes from lifeguard to princess…
Maris Sanders thinks she’s a normal high school girl. Until she starts developing underwater powers that aren’t normal at all. When a good-looking stranger, with the odd name of Cuda, comes into her life and tells her stories, she discovers a history that stuns her.
A lost princess. A lost kingdom. And two lost sisters she never knew she had.
Not knowing who to believe, Maris is determined to find the truth. About herself, her powers, and her sisters. But a scientist hired by Cuda’s father is determined to use her as a science experiment. Maris must decide whether to risk her life and her present human reality to join a battle under the sea. And if she doesn’t, will she ever find where she truly belongs?

Book Review

Maris has had the most normal life among the three princesses so far. She doesn't even know that she is adopted. She has never been allowed close to the ocean by her parents and it comes as a surprise to her that she could swim without ever having taken a single lesson. She is fast enough to win medals for her school and obviously feels that working as a life guard is a perfect summer job. Although she though she would end up at pool duty like most newbies, not at the beach.

Cuda has more than a passing interest in Maris. He thinks that she may be the lost princess, but he needs to find out if she is aware of her own special talents. Before he can test her, she ends up rescuing Dirk Devilla. The son of a scientist who is in cahoots with the separatist leaders. He's looking for the princess but really doesn't believe in the legend like his father does. Unfortunately its all true and Dirk manages to trap Maris and hand her over to his father.

Maris is just about coming to terms with the fantastic legend which both Cuda and Dirk are convinced is about her and two other lost princesses when she discovers her special ability...to heal in the ocean. There's a whole lot of story left even once the book ends. Can't wait to find out how the three united princesses and their personal body guards deal with the situation underwater and the coming war.

Book Description

When a girl on a quest gets kidnapped…
Princess Coral wants one thing. Actually two. Her lost sisters. Locked in her underwater castle by an evil regent intent on seizing control of her kingdom, Coral is determined to break free and find her siblings. When she tries to escape, she’s seized by her childhood crush, Finn. 
This wasn’t the reunion she’d expected. Finn plays a delicate game. A game of loyalty, betrayal, and honor.
Even though Finn is working for the enemy, Coral needs his help to reunite with her sisters and stop an underwater war. She must risk her heart to gain his trust. But what will happen if Finn chooses against her?

Book Review

Of the three Princesses of Atlantis, only one made it back with her regent. That was Princess Cordelia. Or Coral as her close friend Finn likes to call her. Coral has doubts about her being a genuine princess because Mollusk her regent plants them there. She hopes that by looking for her two sisters she will be able to convince him and the rest of her citizens of her claim to rule. Unfortunately she is little more than a prisoner in her own castle...

Till someone abducts her. Someone she trusted before he became a separatist. Some one who did more than stand her up for a date she was really looking forward to. Someone who broke her heart...Can she trust Finn this time round not to betray her? Can he keep her safe even as people try to murder her to do away with the legend?

The plot thickens now as we come to know that Finn is actually Pearl's step brother, but was led away from the Royalists by his father. Now he fights with his own heart's desire to keep Coral safe, and the ideology that refuses to suffer the policies that Mollusk implements. With the two of them manage to survive not just the enemies trying to kill them but also each other?!

Book Description

Home from their travels at last, Sunaya and Iannis are confronted with a threat against which even their strongest magic is largely helpless. The very ground under their city is becoming increasingly unstable, and there are disturbing predictions of an impending quake the likes Solantha hasn't seen in centuries.

While their hands are full preparing for disaster, Iannis's most dangerous rival returns to Solantha, intent on finding anything he can use against Iannis. It isn't long before Fenris too is in his crosshairs, his dangerous secret perilously close to being exposed. Sunaya is fiercely determined to protect both her friend, and the man she loves, but will her efforts be enough? With old and new enemies as well as the might of nature ranged against her, one false step or indiscreet word can spell doom for all three of them...

Book Review

The long awaited end of the series book! Sunaya's adventures have finally led her to a position of power from where she is able to help a lot of people. She is seen coming into her own and working things through even as she feels her old life slipping away. Her new identity while totally dependent on the Chief Mage, is one that she is happy to embrace. 

The new architect, human no less, seems like the kind of person she will be able to help even as he brings his expertise to solve their latest quake crisis. While this is the last book of the series I have a feeling we may be heading into a spin-off series. After all we want to know what happened to Fenris and also the resolution of the situation at the mines!

Book Description

Six years ago, deep in the swamps of Louisiana, Delilah’s face was marred forever at the hands of her sisters by the point of her mother’s kitchen knife. Despite her protest, her parents insist she make haste in finding a husband. But finding a husband isn’t an easy feat with a scar running the length of your face. 
Porter Jeansonne keeps to himself. He lives in his mansion, set apart from the town he’s grown to detest. One night, walking through the town, seeking to collect a debt, he hears a man selling off his daughter in the most deplorable part of the darkened streets. He chooses to take pity on her and set her free from her despicable family. Until he sees her face. He then knows that maybe she is the mend for his haunted heart.

Book Review

Delilah has never been treated well in her own home and she expects nothing better when she is told that she needs to get married. What she did not expect is what she got. A loving husband. Porter Jeansonne just wanted to help the young woman who was obviously being mistreated in her home. He didn't expect to want to marry her, or that she would agree to marry him.

He loves Delilah and wants to keep her safe, but he's got a secret. A ghost is haunting him. He can protect her from her family, but how can he protect her from an enemy he can't fight. Nicely done in the romance and suspense departments.

Book Description

After a scandal in Hollywood, celebrity chef Michael Marstrand accepts a position to be head chef at Castle Ridge Lodge and star in a television program about re-opening a five-star restaurant. He believes returning to his hometown to help the struggling restaurant will earn him public relations points and help an old friend. What he doesn’t know is the sous chef expected to be named head chef and the television series is a reality show called Kitchen Catastrophe.

Sous Chef Isabel O’Donnell returned from vacation to discover the restaurant kitchen remodeled and a new head chef. With contracts already signed, she has no choice but to work for Chef Michael, a man she’d had a crush on since middle school. A man who’d stolen her job.

With the hidden cameras rolling, Michael tries to make the day-to-day routine boring so Kitchen Catastrophe will never be shown, but an interfering producer introduces a bridezilla and an employee who causes trouble. Add the simmering attraction between Michael and Isabel and the reality show has everything: drama, fights, and sex.

In this best friend’s brother conflict, will a fake flirtation produce the perfect recipe or enflame desire?

Book Review

I went straight from the first book The Romance Dance to the third one here, so I was wondering a bit about the references to Luke's romance. However on the whole, the story can be read as a stand alone. I loved the action packed drama that the producer is trying to create and the Chef is trying to avoid.

Michael has a huge chip on his shoulder because of his choice of profession, specially since his father never approved of him. In fact he was borderline abused as a kid and is always trying to prove he is a man because of this.
Isabelle is living her dream and is just about to reach the height of achievement by becoming Head Chef at the Caste Ridge Hotel when Michael usurps her position. She's not happy about that, but he is her childhood crush and she's glad to spend time with him.

Things go from sweet and nice to sexy and steamy when the two of them hit it off. It's fairly predictable in terms of the story, but hey it's a romance with a HEA and that's why you're reading it, right?
