Review: Sarah’s Surrender by Lynda Chance

John Garrett is a cynical multi-millionaire who is rarely denied anything he wants, until the day he meets Sarah McAlister. Sarah's been hurt in the past and everything about the brooding rancher sends her defenses on high alert. She tries her best to stay out of his path, but his relentless pursuit makes him all but impossible to resist.

If I had to describe this book in one word it would be melt-your-pantilicious. Oh my. Complete Alpha male. The only thing that melts Sarah is him and his dominant nature. I loved all the conflict and what it took for them to admit to each other they were in love. I can’t wait for Jaime and her boss’ book. Please Lynda.

Review: Staking His Claim by Lynda Chance

Twenty-one-year-old Elaina Ruiz has only just begun college when she meets Raul Vega for the first time. Recognizing his ruthless intensity for what it is, she doesn't correct him when he assumes she is an eighteen-year-old freshman.

Raul Vega has never met a woman he couldn't do without. Until he meets Elaina Ruiz and knows she has to belong to him--even if it means waiting for her to grow up.

Steamy hot read. Talk about chemistry. These two could cut the sexual tension with a knife. I really liked this book. I loved how intense Raul was. That is one hot as hell Alpha hero. And Elaina didn’t take his shit for long. She eventually demanded what she needed and he gave her that. I love how we got a glimpse of their life 5 years later too. I bet it is nonstop action at that house.

If you are looking for a short, steamy-as-hell read, look no further. Lynda pulled it off with this book.

Review: Coming for My Baby by Angie Daniels

The award-winning author of The Beaumont Series brings readers a delightfully short story that will kick off the Sheraton Beach Brief.

Shannon Shaw’s grandmother is coming for a visit so she better get her fianc√© back in a hurry. Otherwise the feisty old lady will never allow her only grandchild to live alone in Sheraton Beach. Shannon begs her cheating ex-fianc√© Laz Lewis

I really liked the story. I did have a problem with it though. If I am engaged to a cop, been with him for three years, I’m pretty sure I would know what his partner looked like. To me it sounded as if they didn’t involve each other in their lives other than when they were together. Other than that I think it’s a good story. I wish there would’ve been more background, like maybe why Shannon is so insecure.

Review of Fated Hearts by Donna Michaels

Thanks to fate, Jordan Mitchell-Ryan’s heart is tattered. Having kept her from the man she thought she’d always marry, the same fickle fate took away the man she eventually did. Thrown back into the path of her fist love, she finds hers is not the only heart fate has damaged. Widower and software CEO, Cole McCall fills his days with computer codes and working the family ranch. When his visiting former neighbor sets out to delete the firewall around his heart, he discovers there’s no protection against the Jordan virus. Though she understands his pain and reawakens his soul, will it be enough for Cole to overcome his past and embrace their fated hearts?

Emotional, heart gripping tale of the journey for true love. Wow, this book made me laugh and cry and want to punch the hero in his balls. Jordan is a lot stronger than me. i don't think I could've put up with Cole's treatment of her. It all makes sense though. She knows what he's going thru seeing as how she went thru it at the same time as him. This was a story of true emotions and the way real people would work thru them. It touched me in so many ways. I can't wait to see what happens with Connor and Kerri. When is this book coming out Donna?????

Review: Hard Mated (Shifters Unbound #3.5) by Jennifer Ashley

A short novel of the Shifters Unbound series. Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown, is stunned when Myka, the best friend of a dying human woman, announces that Spike has fathered a cub. What's more, the mother is giving the boy to Spike to protect and raise.

Myka, who'd been raised by an abusive stepfather, is not sure that a wild fighter named Spike is the best man to bring up the cute little jaguar cub. She goes to Shiftertown to check out Spike, and finds that the man behind the name is a lonely Shifter who's lost most of his family and is a fierce caretaker to those he has left.

Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader, and begs Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. He starts to like the sassy Myka, a horse trainer who's not afraid of working with animals, even if they're wildcats who turn into humans.

When Spike's job puts his cub and Myka in danger, Spike is forced to choose between those to whom he's pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he's come to love.

This book is the perfect example of why romance readers everywhere would love a shifter mate. They love so fiercely. Spike is the tough fighting jaguar shifter. He finds out he has a cub, and at the same time meets his mate. His protective instincts go haywire. He doesn't want to do as he's told and you don't know until the end if he's going against his alpha or working with him. Myka has been so alone. They are so perfect for each other. I can't wait to read more about them in future books.

Can I just say wow! This was a super long book and I couldn’t put it down.

Vice Sergeant Caroline Palmer is not into whips and chains... That is, not until Homicide detective Lieutenant Michael 'Mick' McGraw--better known as The Iceman--leads her undercover into a secret world she never dreamed existed. He says they are tracking a sexual predator, a sadistic killer who preys on adventurous suburban couples. But Caroline knows Mick is looking for something else. Something much more dangerous. This erotic thriller will leave you breathless in more ways than one.

Can I just say wow! This was a super long book and I couldn’t put it down. To me, this book describes a BDSM relationship perfectly (or as how I see it should be). I can’t imagine the emotions the hero or heroine had to go thru. There was so much push and pull between them. I love that Caroline was an eager, meek little girl, but a sassy and confident woman. She gave as good as she got. The sex scenes, well my fingers are still burning. This book is extremely hot! I have definitely found a new author!

Review: Rules of Mating (Haven #1) by Nia K. Foxx

Ashlei Preen had spent her entire childhood trying to fit in with the residents of Haven. A pretty tall order for someone deemed a regular human in a town of shifters. Still, in spite of her minor “defect” she managed to hold her own. As an adult she applied that same tenacity, which saw her through childhood, to her medical practice while trying to keep sane. Lately her thoughts have been filled with the town’s newest resident who seems more eager to be away from her rather than share the same air space.

The little town of Haven was exactly what he needed. Seth Riddick was done with the big city, and the stream of crime that consumed his life as a Special Forces detective. He longed for the simplicity of the thriving shifter town where he could be true to himself and enjoy a frequent hunt without fear of being tranqed – that really pissed him off. Haven was definitely a paradise for a lone wolf like him. But even paradise has its complications and for Seth it comes equipped with a stethoscope and enough determination to have him questioning his bachelor status.

It isn’t long before the lines become blurred of who’s chasing whom.

This book is full of hot as hell sex and one steamy hot Alpha werewolf, my favorite type of hero! Ashlei has had it tough, never feeling like she will fit into her shiftertown. Knowing a shifter would never want to mate with her since she can’t shift. When the new Sheriff (Seth) comes into town she is immediately smitten. After a month of avoidance, they finally get it on. Let me just say, yummy! This book was nonstop action and sex. Ashlei is the heroine everyone loves and Seth is the hero everyone wants. They are the perfect pair.

Nia is a new author to me. I will definitely be checking out some of her other work.
