Alpha Death Hunter, Lennox Bartley, has kept the shifter world safe from rogues and exposure for years, making an enemy or ten along the way. Though something had always been missing in his life. Then he met Jade Cross.

Jade is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, despite her disfigurement. She is a successful and creative entrepreneur but also the most submissive wolf he’s ever known.

As the alpha, Lennox needs a strong, confident female or the Death Hunters will eat her for lunch. Plus, when his enemies learn he has a mate, her life will be in constant danger.

Jade has the choice to follow her heart or her head. One will keep her in her sheltered, safe world while the other will lead to the love of her life and almost certain death if she doesn’t find the inner strength to help herself.

My book review: 

Wow Bryce Evans has done it again. I think all Bryce’s fans were wait for Jades book,and it certainly didn’t disappoint me,But we were not expecting her mate to be a Bear ( Death Hunter Alpha) Death Hunters are the police force/Enforcer of the packs – they have never had a home or mates but times are about to change. And Bryce gives us the perfect couple and book to start the series with  – Jade (submissive wolf from Dixon pack) and Lennox . Who is moving his death hunters in , settling in and claiming his mate. But they both have things to work out in this relationship but they will have there happy ending. So glad to see Jade again and the book is awesome-looking forward to reading the next book in this series.   Lisa (read with Kindle unlimited)

ARC Book Review : I loved this book but I am also a big fan of Susan Stokers books also. And this is the perfect combination of both authors books. In this book Autumn takes on a new temporary  job in Durango to work in the burn unit at the hospital. She misses her friends in San Antino and goes out to the pub to meet a friend and meets Chief Blackfoot the acting police chief.  He cant forget the hot redhead and when she is in danger hes committed  to help her no matter what . A hot romance and a hot couple in danger makes for an exciting book. Looking forward to reading more from this author. Lisa 

 

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.

She is the author of the Cedar Tree and Portland, ME Series, the Northern Lights Collection and the Rock Point Series. She is also co-author of the SnapShot Series.

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, the busiest time of the year at Beechy’s Sweets, where the Amish gifts of love and faith are even sweeter than the home-made candy.

THE SWEETEST COURTSHIP National Bestselling Author Emma Miller

future wife . . .

THE SWEETEST TRUTH  National Bestselling Author Laura Bradford

NOTHING TASTES SO SWEET Award-Winning Author Mary Ellis
Pregnant and suddenly widowed, Hannah must give up the dreams she once had. But when she learns that her longtime English employer plans to sell his hardware store, she’s determined to buy it.

Net galley Book Review:

Get ready for a sweet romance set in Bluebird , Pennsylvania. Home to these 3 novels each filled with love and romance. My favorite is :  The Sweetest Courtship finds us at the Sweet shop where Jacob’s mother is conspiring to have grandchildren. Being a confirmed bachelor is not what his mother wants. She convinces Jacob that maybe help during their busy time might be a blessing. What he doesn’t realize is that the applicants are really there for two reasons. Store help and a wife. Who doesnt love a match making mother. But the other 2 books are just as great – so grab this collection and enjoy a sweet treat. Lisa

 

Book Review * Echoes of Fire by Suzanne Wright

They may not be made for each other, but animal instincts are impossible to ignore.

Madisyn Drake is a rare breed of cat shifter…a loner, unpredictably wild, and emotionally distant. A recent betrayal has left her ready to sharpen her claws on the next man she sees…until a prowling wolf with steel-gray eyes and a brooding dark edge challenges her distrust. No matter how fully he satisfies her touch-hunger, Madisyn’s not ready to open up again, even if it is oh so gratifying.

Bracken Slater has earned his reputation as an indomitable predator. Once broken by grief and guilt, he is feeling alive again, thanks to the heady scent of this independent feline. Madisyn isn’t interested in joining an unfamiliar pack, so convincing her that they’re meant for each other is going to take more than branding her beautiful neck. But when threats from both their pasts take shape, their unexpected destiny may be the only thing that can save them.

About the Author

Net Galley Book Review 
The excellent mystery/suspense was intense from the first pages of the book until the end. The main characters, Celeste and Jonathan, were interesting and it was easy to relate to . Celeste needs a place to hide away from everything and the Amish community is the perfect place to get away from it all. With Jonathan family connection to the community its a heart warming story with romance and family getting back together, Lisa

Net Galley Book Review: 

This is book 7 of this cozy paranormal series (and last??) and its another winner. When Cookie is asked to dress models for a photo shoot at a graveyard things are going to get fun.When the testy photographer ends up dead it’s time for Cookie and a little help from some ghostly friends to go into action. I love Cookie ,Heather and her cast of ghostly friends who can find information no one else can. This book was a fitting tribute to the gang and sad to be leaving them. Hopefully they will show back up sometimes -you  never know with ghost or fashion. Lisa

Cozy Mystery Review : The Peppermint Mocha Murder

It’s beginning to look like a merry Christmas for Hayden Mundy Moore. On vacation from providing her sought-after expertise in all things chocolate, Hayden heads to snowy New England with her friend and financial advisor, Travis, for the opening of his pal’s highly-touted holiday musical. But when the show’s producer is murdered, Hayden trades sampling Chocolate Santas for finding the killer—especially since this time, Travis is the one asking for her help . . .

Soon Hayden discovers there’s more to Travis’s chic hometown than mulled wine and cocoa cookies. But that’s just the beginning. Almost no one, including Travis, is quite what they seem. Did the show’s lead have more savage motives than stardom? Could the dead producer’s husband have felt a murderous envy for his successful wife? Getting behind the mistletoe and jingle bells will take all of Hayden’s savvy—along with some super caffeinated Peppermint Mochas—if she hopes to catch a killer with a heart more bitter than the darkest truffle . . .

When desire gets this hot, you’d better buckle up…

Mary Daniels doesn’t let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle—huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine—is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crews for hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona—and her trademark self-control—is slipping, and she won’t allow it.

Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time…until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all.
