Book 3
Dark Angels
Half-werewolf, half-Aedh Risa Jones can enter the realm between life and death, and she can see the Reapers who collect the souls of the dead. Now, she is using her gifts—and the investigative know-how of a man who broke her heart—to find a cabal searching for the power to control time, reality, and fate. And this is besides her work for the Vampire Council, half of whom want her dead.

But for now the Council needs her alive. Someone is killing blood-whore addicted vampires, and Risa must find the guilty party. If she succeeds, she may finally convince the council to lift the execution order on her life. But before she succeeds, she must first survive…

ARC: In A Fix by Linda Grimes

Posted on Sep 19, 2012 with 2 comments

Sep 19, 2012


Snagging a marriage proposal for her client while on an all-expenses-paid vacation should be a simple job for Ciel Halligan, aura adaptor extraordinaire. A kind of human chameleon, she's able to take on her clients' appearances and slip seamlessly into their lives, solving any sticky problems they don't want to deal with themselves. No fuss, no muss. Big paycheck.

This particular assignment is pretty enjoyable...that is, until Ciel's island resort bungalow is blown to smithereens and her client's about-to-be-fiancé is snatched by modern-day Vikings. For some reason, Ciel begins to suspect that getting the ring is going to be a tad more difficult than originally anticipated.

The Guardian Series
Book 3
      Video-game designer River Weston has seen her world torn apart. The streets of Earth have filled with looting, sickness, and fighting, but River knows that she is in a unique position to help. Drawing on her Fae magic, she creates a computer-generated program called Hollow Man, designed to protect humans during battle. Worlds away, Guardian Chase Hawkins has finally returned to his own body after years of astral projection. His mission now that he's back: retrieve River, who is walking a dark path without even knowing it, and strip her world of the technology that has brought it to ruin. Hawk and his team arrive on Earth only to discover that River's new computer program endangers the world all on its own. An old human virus has resurrected and mutated with a computer virus inside of Hollow Man, and it's spreading uncontrollably. Hawk is convinced it's too late to save Earth...but River isn't ready to give up hope yet. River and Hawk find themselves on opposing sides, yet drawn together stronger than ever before. But a future with both of them in it could mean walking paths darker than either of them could ever have imagined.

I gave this book a 4
  
    Fair Game by Taylor Keating is an adventure waiting to be experienced. The countdown has begun and Hawk must do whatever it takes to explain things to River. The action found in this story kept me glued to the pages from the very beginning. Keating’s ability to create such an interesting plot woven into an amazing world led me deeper and deeper into the story. Hawk and River take this story and heat it up, giving readers front row seats to an explosive galactic fireworks show.  This is my first time reading a book from the writing duo known as Taylor Keating, a pseudonym of writing team Catherine Verge and Paula Altenburg. I wish we could of learned more about River's grandmother.  I will now have to go back and read the first and second book in the series, Fair Game was just too interesting.

Immortally Yours (Monster M*A*S*H, #1)
Monster M*A*S*H 
Book 1


IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE GODS… 
No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx,vegetarian werewolf, and otherparanormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally). But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN LOVE

Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophecy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace. And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back? Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…

I gave this book a 4
While humans are oblivious to the impending destruction of the world, one group of paranormal beings fight to keep the fabric of life intact. Immortally Yours by Angie Fox is a wonderful fast paced story of paranormal proportions. This series is aptly named, the visual Fox has created will take you to frontlines of the action. This dark world surrounds Galen and Petra as their passion for each other smolders and rages. Fox has done a fantastic job of creating another amazing world. I look forward to the next book in the Monster M*A*S*H series.

ARC: A Scandalous Affair by Karen Erickson

Book 3
The Merry Widows Series
From the moment Daphne, Lady Pomeroy, meets the mysterious Marquess of Hartwell at a masquerade ball, she's determined to seduce him. The handsome, charming man cannot possibly be the cold, calculating lord who Society calls "Black Hart." Risking everything, the lonely widow invites the elusive Hartwell to her dinner party…for two.

Hartwell's arrogant reputation is built on a lie. For he has a shameful secret that keeps him in the shadows: a stutter—his downfall since childhood. He'd rather keep his mouth shut than look the fool. But he's shocked to discover that in Daphne's company—and in her bed—his stutter vanishes.

After one wanton evening together, Daphne is hurt when the lord lives up to his Black Hart name. Yet his reasons for leaving surprise even him. Now he must confess everything or risk losing Daphne forever…

I gave this book a 3

   
A  Scandalous Affair by Karen Erickson was a fun read, a great short story with all the passion of a novel.
Lady Pomeroy sets her sights on the handsome, Camden, and there was nothing to deter her from her prize. I enjoyed the fact that the main character had a flaw, although he did seem a bit too shy for my taste.    I wish there had been a couple more pages of the story, maybe a bit more conflict between the lead characters. I will definitely be placing Ms. Erikson's titles on my TBR pile.
