Review: The Siren and the Deep Blue Sea by Kerrelyn Sparks

  Raised on the magic-seeped Isle of Moon, Maeve is used to unusual powers--and the way they fuel the politics of her world. But when she discovers an ability to shape-shift at will, she knows who she wants to share it with first. Brody, the enigmatic, infuriating shifter-spy has always made time for Maeve. But it's been almost two months since she's seen him. And though no one else believes Brody is in danger, Maeve is more than ready to rescue him herself. The rumors Brody's investigating are terrifying: a secret army of magic-users, in the service of the cruel Circle of Five. But when he uncovers the identity of one of the Five, the mission becomes personal. Cursed as a boy by the Sea Witch, Brody can spend only two hours a day in his human form, a restriction that limits his future and muzzles his heart. Plus Maeve teases him for being such a pretty doggy instead of appreciating his manly charms. To win his freedom, he must take on a terrible disguise. And when Maeve fi

Review: Country Storm by Cheyenne McCray

Image
  Rae Fox wants nothing more than to run from her past—only she can't run far, considering she's on trial for killing an intruder who tried to murder her. She escapes to the small town of King Creek at her cousin's urging, where she has some anonymity in between traveling to and from Lake Havasu City to stand trial. Bear McLeod is a country vet, spending his time caring for King Creek's livestock and pets, and his own menagerie on his ranch. He meets the beautiful Rae when she brings in a dog that had been hit by a car. Later, he runs into Rae at the bar she's tending in town and is determined to get to know her. When the trial is over, and she walks away a free woman, Rae plans to run to Albuquerque where she can start life far from any place where she can be recognized. She won't let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. But Rae has stolen Bear's heart, and he'll do anything to keep the woman he loves. I've been looking forward to Bear's book. E

Review & Giveaway: The Jackal by J. R. Ward

  The location of the glymera’s notorious prison camp was lost after the raids. When a freak accident provides Nyx clues to where her sister may still be doing time, she becomes determined to find the secret subterranean labyrinth. Embarking on a journey under the earth, she learns a terrible truth—and meets a male who changes everything forever. The Jackal has been in the camp for so long he cannot recall anything of the freedom he once knew. Trapped by circumstances out of his control, he helps Nyx because he cannot help himself. After she discovers what happened to her sister, getting her back out becomes a deadly mission for them both. United by a passion they can’t deny, they work together on an escape plan for Nyx—even though their destiny is to be forever apart. And as the Black Dagger Brotherhood is called upon for help, and Rhage discovers he has a half-brother who’s falsely imprisoned, a devious warden plots the deaths of them all…even the Brothers.

Review: Bayou Baby by Lexi Blake

Image
  Seraphina Guidry loves Butterfly Bayou. A young, single mom, she’s trying to find a place for herself in the town she cherishes, but past mistakes have made her wary. She adores her son but has sworn off men. She's dedicated herself to restoring a historic house and building her own business. A quiet life is all she wants. Harrison Jefferys never expected to find himself in small-town Louisiana, but he has a job to do and a family to reconnect with. After years in the Army, he’s happy to spend time with his Aunt Celeste and his cousins in such an idyllic spot. When he meets Seraphina, he starts to think Papillion might be a great place to call home. But a secret from Sera’s past rears its head and threatens to tear the community apart. Caught between the woman he’s coming to love and the only family he has left, Harry knows he has to follow his heart and with the help of the crazy, loving, meddling locals find a way to keep them both. If you follow me then you know that I really
