Familiar 

51eFViiJhYLSlade Spencer returns to his hometown after an incident five years ago that changed his life. A warlock in denial, he’s subconsciously learned to erase memories from his mind that upset him. Now his past stares him in the face as he meets up with his old flame, Susie Vasilly. 

Susie is shocked to see Slade return, and this pleases her but also scares her more than anything. She has some secrets that she knows will upset him, and cannot tell him she’s been cursed and every night turns into his eccentric warlock uncle’s cat – his Familiar.

When Susie’s life is endangered and her secrets revealed, Slade has no choice but to accept his warlock ways and learn the Craft of his kind. He vows to face his inner demons as well as his uncle’s dark arts, on a race to hone his skills to save Susie and break her curse, or die trying.


Lady and the Wolf

51QVoPyym2LBook 1 – Tangled Tales Series
(A twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.)

Lord Hugh de Bar, known as Wolf, has been cursed and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. He vows to kill the man responsible for his torture, Earl Roland Chaserton of Tavistock, but the man has avoided this confrontation by staying locked away in his castle in hiding. But when the man’s granddaughter appears in the woods alone at night, Wolf realizes he can take her captive to lure the earl out of hiding so he can kill him. However, he needs to proceed with caution since the girl is armed with a crossbow and skilled at killing wolves – and also very alluring.

Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton has defied her grandfather’s orders and sneaked out of the castle to investigate a mysterious hidden door in a knoll that she’s seen on one of the hunting trips with her grandfather’s knights. Alone in the dark and without an escort, she has only her crossbow to protect her. But when she feels she’s being followed by a wolf, the handsome lord of Babeny appears to protect her instead. She is intrigued by the presence of Lord Hugh de Bar, and lets down her guard. However, things aren’t always as they seem, and when she’s taken captive by him she realizes there is more to this dark lord than meets the surface. He says he despises her for killing wolves and being the granddaughter of his archenemy, yet his eyes tell her a different story. His gaze devours her – and she feels like he wants to eat her.

Will magical forces come between a lady and a wolf, or bring them together instead? And will the de Bar family finally find redemption from the dark magic that has been bestowed upon each of the siblings and brought turmoil into their lives?

My Thoughts:

**Reviewed on Amazon August 13, 2017**

Who doesn’t love fairytales and this adult twist of Little Red Ridinghood is a well written version of this tale filled with fantasy and magic.
A much loved fairytale has been morphed into an adulthood version but still keeps the flavor we have all come to love.

Wolf is our hero instead of the villain in this retelling. The villain in this case is a witch who has cursed his family turning his twin brother into a wolf, full-time and himself into a shape shifter who turns from human to wolf.
Will our heroine find it in her heart to not kill the wolves? Will she discover the mysterious secrets behind this man/wolf she has come to love?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames.

I purchased this title via Amazon in 2016 and remembered having already purchased it when the author offered me a complimentary digital copy to read and review.

This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I re-read and reviewed voluntarily.


The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill

510dX3QPwrLVampires are the last thing reporter Cassie Briggs expects to find when her coworkers send her on an night mission to Showman’s Hill Cemetery. Still, she would do anything to find her missing sister, even if it means taking up residence in an old house with very strange occupants and a caretaker as handsome as he is eccentric. 

Basil Wensilton III, once a lion tamer in the circus, has never felt threatened until now. Cassie’s body as well as her neck has him feeling emotions he thought died along with most his family and friends in an accident two centuries ago. When Cassie starts asking too many questions, he knows he can never let her leave – alive. He is a vampire with a job to do guarding the cemetery’s secrets and its occupants, and ironically the one woman who can destroy him and “his kind” is also the only person who can save him from himself.


The Pandora Curse 

51CLJiXq1eL

Greek Myth Series Book 4

Vara the Conqueror has claimed Corinth and also the title of Queen. Controlled by the Furies in her brain, she is plagued by the mistake of her great-grandmother, Pandora. Now she is ruled by lust, gluttony, greed, anger and jealousy. Only foresight was trapped in the box, but a seer named Nikolai has filled those requirements.

Nikolai the seer is a demi-god and son of the evil Hera. He has been sent by his mother to foil Zeus’s plan by collecting all the vices secretly from Vara. He serves as advisor and seer to the curious Queen Vara, but little does she know he is the man he’s foreseen who will destroy her.

Will Vara willingly give up everything that has made her the woman she is, or will Nikolai be defeated going against the headstrong woman afflicted by the curse of mankind, in The Pandora Curse?


Ian 

512cHeFzKALIan – Book 3 – MadMan MacKeefe Series

Ian MacKeefe is haunted by the demons in his head, taunting him of his tarnished past. And then in the fire on All Hallow’s Eve, he sees the face of Tearlach MacTavish, the man he’d killed and buried three years ago. Not a settling thought since this is the night when the veil is pushed aside and the dead are said to be able to come back to life.

Kyla has grown up with Ian, as her brother is his best friend. And while Ian thinks of her as naught more than a wee sister, she has fallen in love with him through the years, and plans on proving to him she is much more than he thinks.

But love is the last thing on Ian’s mind, especially when their clan chieftain makes an alliance with their enemies, betrothing Kyla to the MacTavishes – and Ian is faced with more demons once again.

Can Ian overcome his past before it’s too late for him to notice that the lassie he’s considered naught more than a wee sister, Kyla, is a strong, beautiful woman who he is about to lose forever?

The Matchmaker
A promise to his long-dead sister forces Lord Grigsby back into society to broker the marriage of his disreputable nephew to the heiress whose money can save the earldom.

The Matchbreaker
Liliana Ashford has been hired to help an heiress pass muster with the ton and snare a titled husband. Though, if she had a magic wand, she’d turn her charge’s fiancé back into the toad he truly was.

Scandal and a New Match
But she never plotted murder! As the young Earl’s sordid death evokes the scandal of the season, a shadow from Liliana’s own past appears, threatening her carefully crafted world. Grigsby sets about finding his nephew’s killer…and Liliana’s secrets. Meanwhile she scrambles to make a new match for the girl, because finding a husband of her own is out of the question–or is it?

If you believe love can be found at any age, you’ll enjoy this “beautiful little story”–get your copy today!
Though Liliana’s Letter is a prequel to Bella’s Band, it’s a stand-alone romance with two “older” lovers who find their own happily-ever-after.
