Alex likes to think he’s a good guy—the type of person who loves to help others. A Good Samaritan. So naturally when he sees a woman stuck at the side of the road, looking all helpless his first instinct is to stop and help.

Little did he know that this one act of kindness is about to change his life forever.

Penny has her future all planned out. Her new job as a reporter is the first step toward building a successful life for herself. Unfortunately, her first day on the job isn’t going as she imagined it would. On the side of the highway with a flat tire and open trunk all she can do is silently pray for a miracle…and then gets one.

Only, this miracle is about to steer her life in an entirely different direction.

 

My Book Review : First this book is a series & doesn’t end here.  So be warned before starting this book. It’s a  charming book filled with amazing characters with a touch of humor and passion, 

: Penny a  reporter getting her first big break with big plans in the works. And Alex sports trainer, good guy but with a dark side who goes through some major changes as the book progresses .And Payton  a friend from Alex pass that leaves him questioning his life and love for Penny.  That will leave each person at the end of the book questioning themselves and life choices – The book continues in book 2 now out and book 3 in the works.

When the wolves’ own blood betrays them, they risk their lives to find a miracle.

Wolf shifter Dr. Aidan Denali has been working day and night to find a cure for werewolves’ alarmingly sudden decline in lifespan. The key to the problem eludes him. But when Aidan grudgingly leaves his work to do some holiday shopping, he meets a remarkable she-wolf whose mysterious pack could bring him one step closer to the answer.

Dr. Holly Gray is thrilled to meet the wolf who’s been working so hard to help others. Now, it’s her turn to help him. But while their attraction is sizzling, the packs are at odds, and the danger is increasing. It’s going to take a holiday miracle for Holly and Aidan to get themselves—and their loved ones—out of this alive…

tantalizingly open” – Booklist

51jhtlQuFBL._SY346_

 

 

Thrilling, witty, and oh-so-sexy, Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau novel brings together a beautiful Immortal and the man who is her destiny…

For someone who’s been around for over a hundred and forty years, immortal Elspeth Argeneau hasn’t done a whole lot of living. Now that she’s moved away from her controlling mother, she’s tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth’s surprise, her landlady’s hot grandson checks both boxes.

Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He’s stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don’t make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious “accidents” besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies—and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.

Jax Hamill is a man who has changed his life – with lots of hard work and even more dumb luck. He’s left the hell of his younger and wilder days behind, and now he has a bar, a house, a truck, and a bike. Oh, and all the casual sex in a bar back room that a man like him may desire. Jax lives his carefree life for ‘now’, and keeps things ‘temporary’. At least he did…until she threw everything he thought in to question.

Sarah Matthews is a woman who would love to change her life in some ways. By default and sheer bad luck, she juggles a staggering number of responsibilities, both personal and professional. She’s single, stressed, and seriously in need of some fun. If only she could escape her overly-scheduled, vanilla life, and cut loose… just for a little while.

When Jax and Sarah decide to get together – just temporarily and just for fun – it changes both of their lives for the better. But when a man from Sarah’s past returns, it changes everything for the worse. In fact, it couldn’t be worse. As Sarah fights to come back to him, Jax is forced to confront the kind of person he was, who he is now, and the kind of man that he wants to be… both for Sarah, and for himsel

From the Author

Dear readers,

A quick note:

I love to write steamy, sexy, slinky romances, so yes indeed, the love scenes are descriptive. Some graphic language is used, so please be prepared for that when considering downloading one of my books. Thank you so much for your interest and support!

Warmly,
Marysol

Book Review * Kord by Crystal Dawn

Are you ready for more White Wolves ? Supernatural Lawmen  book #1 is here ! 

51NrMKbWt2L._SY346_

 

book link

 

A hot wolf deputy looks to settle down, but doesn’t know if it will ever happen. His doubts grow stronger as he fails to find the right one. Then MJ comes to work at the Sheriff’s office. Is she the one?
MJ is an unchanged white wolf with a new job in her local sheriff’s office. She not sure she’s ready to mate, but trouble is headed her way and Kord is looking out for her. Will she chose him?

 

My Book Review : I am so glad to see the white wolf series spin off into the Lawman . Kord is one of Ariel’s pack wolfs and he’s a local deputy sheriff and longing for a mate. When MJ starts working at the office -but she’s human but also Ariels cousin.  Which means she be turned into a white wold which brings in tons of complications as these two work out a relationship. But with Ariel’s guiding voice these two are destined for each other. 

I recommend to get yourself familiar with the white wolf books before reading this newest spin off. Lots of characters from the white wolf series appear in the book but you do find out more about the wardens (the law man to the council)

“Sizzling.”
–Kat Martin 
 
Hide. That’s all Pippa can do to escape the terror chasing her. But now that she’s off the grid in a safe house, she finds plenty of interesting things to watch through the window. Like her new neighbor, with his startling green eyes, killer smile, and sexy bad-boy tattoo . . .

 
Run. Malcolm West is fleeing the hell he unleashed in his last assignment as an undercover cop. A backwoods bungalow sounds like the perfect place to start over. Until he discovers he’s been set up . . .
 
Fight. Someone’s gone to a lot of trouble to bring them together. No matter how much he resents that, and his own driving needs, Malcolm will have to dig deep and let loose the banished killer inside himself, or Pippa’s fears could come true faster than the flip of a bolt in a lock . . .
 
“Sexy . . . packed with action and danger–a real page turner.”
New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin
