Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away. As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas. Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind. But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?

Excerpt



“Tamisia, the house is completely locked down and secure. All of the alarms are engaged. No one can get in without the whole perimeter lighting up and tripping a dozen sirens.”
And yet someone had.
Sia was all but certain of it.
And then, upstairs, a sharp female shriek confirmed her fears. The scream sounded worse than pained. The quiet that followed lasted not even a moment, then a baby started wailing.
“Oh, no.” Phaedra went chalk white. “That’s coming from Rosa and Angelina’s room.”
Sia nodded, grim. No wonder the young mother had seemed so afraid when she arrived a couple of days ago. Her nightmare was far from over. By the awful sounds of it, the man Rosa was running from had decided she wasn’t getting away so easily.
Cold dread swept her, seeping into her marrow.
The whole house was coming awake now, vibrating with confusion and terror.
All Sia heard was the piercing wails of the innocent little baby she’d left sleeping so peacefully just a short while ago.
Dammit, no.
Hot rage replaced the chill and her vision blurred into a red haze.
“Stay here, Phaedra. Call for help.”
“Tamisia, what will you do?”
She didn’t know exactly. There was no time for a plan. She only knew she had to act.
Without answering, she raced for the stairs, pausing only long enough to issue a sharp command to her friend. “The police, Phaedra. Do it now.”
Sia was immortal, inhumanly powerful, but she wasn’t a fighter. Never had been. She was a politician, shielded by a contingent of Atlantean guards who would fight at her bidding. But none of that mattered as she flew up the steps and past the open doors and terrified faces of the shelter’s other residents.
“Back inside, all of you. Don’t come out until I tell you to.”
No one balked at her hushed orders. One by one, the frightened women and handful of small children retreated, shutting their doors.
Pausing outside Rosa’s room, Sia caught the muffled sound of a gravely male voice behind the door. “It’s gotta be here somewhere. Keep looking! Santino said no loose ends.”

Suspicion pricked at Sia’s conscience. This didn’t sound like a violent ex-lover coming back to harm Rosa. This was something else. And no less dangerous.

Midnight Unleashed (Midnight Breed #14.7) by Lara Adrian Review

Midnight Unleashed (Midnight Breed, #14.7)Midnight Unleashed by Lara Adrian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lara Adrian’s MIDNIGHT UNLEASED is an excellent addition to the Midnight Breed series. Breed Gen One vampire Trygg is partnered with Atlantean Tamisia (Sia) on a mission to stop the dealing of Red Dragon. This PNR is suitable for adult audiences. It takes place in Rome.

Lara Adrian continues to do a wonderful job with her character development. Sia and Trygg have both gone through a lot in their lives. They are both very different, and they seem like an unlikely match. I like that Sia really understood Trygg. She sees more than the former Hunter. Sia is not the type to back down and Trygg is stubborn; it made for some interesting confrontations. I appreciated their chemistry and banter.

I enjoyed the plot. It was clever how the characters end up working together. The story was exciting with interesting twists. I like that incidences from previous books in the series had relevance in this story. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Branded by Fire (Blood & Magic # 4) by Danielle Annett Reveiw

Branded by Fire: A Paranormal Urban Fantasy Series (Blood & Magic Book 4)Branded by Fire: A Paranormal Urban Fantasy Series by Danielle Annett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Danielle Annett’s BRANDED BY FIRE is scorching hot. The story takes place following book three, BURNED BY FIRE. After nearly dying, Aria Naveed was mate bonded to Pacific Northwest Pack Alpha, Declan Valkenaar. She is struggling to control her powers after being experimented on by H.A.C. (HUMAN ALLIANCE CORPORATION), while trying to avoid the catastrophic outcome of her prophecy. This PNR is suitable for adult readers.

Danielle Annett continues to do an amazing job with her character development and plot. The characters have grown and overcome numerous obstacles. I like that the story is told from both Aria’s and Declan’s point of view. I appreciate how their relationship evolved. There is some interesting tension with Inarus. My heart went out to Aria and everything she endured, especially with her mother.

BURNED BY FIRE was fast-paced and exciting throughout. There were fascinating twists with unexpected outcomes. My only complaint about this book is that it ended. I enjoy this story so much I wanted it to keep going. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting book five. I love this series. I would compare it to Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series and Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas: Giveaway

Title: Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas
Author: Terry Spear
Series: White Wolf, #1
Pub Date: October 3, 2017

May all your Christmas wolves be bright…
Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life—until the playful bite of a werewolf puppy accidentally turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. Talk about a life-changing event! Candice is at the end of her rope with the unpredictable shifting, a strong desire to howl, and the need to vacuum constantly to keep the shedding fur under control.

Enter werewolf private investigator Owen Nottingham. Owen has a new mission: convince the pretty she-wolf she needs to join his pack in time for Christmas…and be his mate. It’s the only way he can think of to keep her safe…

USA Today bestselling author Terry Spear has written over sixty paranormal and medieval Highland romances. In 2008, Heart of the Wolf was named a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. A retired officer of the U.S. Army Reserves, Terry also creates award-winning teddy bears that have found homes all over the world. She lives in Spring, Texas with two Havanese puppies.



Excerpt


Candice had been writing for two days straight, working on her publisher’s book deadline, when she wrote the ending, smiled, and set the book aside. She would start proofing it tomorrow after she’d given her brain a break. Now she’d do what she always did when she finished a book or reached a good stopping point in one. Clean house. Check her backlog of emails. Pick up some more groceries. And take a run on the wolf side.

She finished vacuuming and dusting, swearing every window must let in all the outdoors, and then started a batch of gingerbread cookie cutouts to celebrate the Christmas holiday season and finishing another book. While they were baking, she finally settled down to check her emails. Fan mail always came first, and one from her website got her attention right off. She opened it and read:

Hello, I’m Owen Nottingham, private investigator for White River Investigations, White River Falls, Minnesota. My client, Strom Hart, hired me to locate you. Your parents, John and Cynthia Hart, left you an inheritance, and you need to see the lawyer about it so you can claim it. I need to verify that
you are the right woman first. Is there any way we could meet and get this taken care of so you can collect your inheritance? Strom Hart will be the one to receive it by the end of the month otherwise. His assistant, Jim Winchester, said Mr. Hart is your uncle.

Candice reread the message, not believing her eyes, tears filling them. She quickly looked at the date of the message. Two days ago! She knew she shouldn’t have neglected her emails, but when she was into a story, she couldn’t break away.

She ground her teeth, raised her fingers to respond, and heard a knocking at her door. No one came here. Never. Ever. Not even salesmen.

She glanced at her phases-of-the moon calendar. The waxing gibbous was just beginning. She should be fine. Just to be on the safe side, in case the person at the door was trouble, she pulled a can of mace from her desk drawer and headed for the door. She peered through the peephole. Waiting at the door was a handsome black-haired man with rugged features and intense blue eyes. He was dressed in a black suit, a red shirt, and a dark-purple tie covered in red, purple, and gold Christmas balls. She raised her brows.

“I’m Owen Nottingham,” he said to the door, holding up his PI license and driver’s license. He couldn’t know that she was watching him, so he must have hoped she was there, observing him. “I tried getting ahold of you through the contact form on your website about your inheritance. Your contact form might not be working, so I had to locate you in person.”
So this was the man who had sent the message. Was he for real? He had to be. He wouldn’t have come all this way to see her if he wasn’t. But how had he found her?

Candice opened the door, the bells jingling on her Christmas wreath, and the man glanced down at the can of mace in her hand. He smiled, his gaze holding hers with such intensity that it was as though he could see clear through to her soul. “Really, just a PI doing my job.”

A chilly breeze carried his scent to her. Wolf scent. All at once, she felt so light-headed that she grabbed the door to keep herself upright and dropped the can of mace on the tile floor. It clattered, but she couldn’t have reached for it if her life depended on it.

Oh. My. God.

This couldn’t be real. He couldn’t be real. No wonder he’d been talking to the door. He must have heard her footfalls as she’d approached.

He took a deep breath at the same time, and when he smelled her scent, his eyes widened in surprise. His hand shot out to grab her arm and steady her. For a minute, she tried to control her breathing and her heart rate, neither of which she could steady. She felt like she was going to pass out.

“Hell, you’re the wolf I saw across the White River, aren’t you?”

Her jaw dropped, and her knees buckled. He swept her up in his arms and she wanted to object, but he slammed the door behind him with his hip and carried her into the house. He was the wolf she’d seen across the river that day on the camping trip in Minnesota two years ago, sipping from the water? She still remembered it like it was yesterday. Him looking up and seeing her staring at him while she’d believed she was hallucinating.

Until the next night, and then she knew she hadn’t been dreaming at all.
