absolving his sins cover
The book Trident Security fans have been waiting for!

The huntress has become the hunted, in more ways than one. Jordyn Alvarez works for the United States government—a fact no one in authority will admit. She does Uncle Sam’s dirty work. Some might call her an agent, but few know her real title—Assassin.

Trained by one of the best black operatives in the world, she wants nothing more than to add him to the long list of people she has sent straight to hell. But she doesn’t dare get close to him ever again. If she did, she couldn’t be sure her body wouldn’t betray her once more and wind up in bed with him. But with her cover blown, she may not have a choice.

Who is he? He’s a ghost. A man with one name—Carter.

Absolving His Sins: Trident Security Book 7 (Trident Security Series) (Volume 7) is sinfully hot!!! Finally Carter’s story!! I have to say while reading this book, I had a lot of hot flashes and cold showers during the whole time I read it. * Fans Face* Jordyn and Carter met years ago and had a spectacular night, but when she found his bag of toys, she finds out that he is into the BDSM lifestyle. She believes that anyone in that lifestyle is an abuser. She does not want any association with anyone who abuses people. Now they are together again to find out who leaked the names of the operatives like them. To save their colleagues and to punish the one behind the whole thing. When Carter and Jordyn get together, the sparks are flying between these two. I love the book and the series!! The characters and stories ate well-developed. So, I recommend this book and the whole series to everyone. I give ABSOLVING HIS SINS 5/5 STARS.

ONE BLIZZARD, ONE BUNKHOUSE,
AND A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE . . .

Josie Dawson is new in town, but it doesn’t take a local to know that Deke Sullivan is trouble–in a smokin’ hot package. He’s sweet, sexy, and has charmed just about every woman in Dry Creek, Texas. Well, Josie won’t be next. She’ll keep her distance, even if he is great with babies and makes a mean cup of homemade hot chocolate.

Deke Sullivan really is a one-woman type of guy. He just had to do a lot of looking to find that one woman. Now he thinks he’s found her and he won’t let a strong, sassy gal like Josie slip away. Just when he’s wondering how to convince her he only has eyes for her, they get stranded in a tiny cabin during a major blizzard. If Deke can melt her heart before they dig out of the snow, he’ll be the luckiest cowboy in Texas . . .

Wicked Cowboy Charm (Lucky Penny Ranch) is a sweet, heartwarming story. Deke and Josie are are a couple that I really loved reading about. They were a very likable couple that you wanted to see get together. The whole story line was great! Deke is a down home boy who likes to party on the weekend and loves the ladies, but when he meets Josie he just wants to settle down with her and leave his women chasing and partying ways behind. Josie has a nose for finding oil, and when she comes to town to help her family dig a well on their property, she meets Deke. A cowboy who is sexy as hell and a smooth talker. Josie won’t be fooled into thinking that he will settle down with one woman. When they are forced to stay together in a cabin during a blizzard, they get to thinking that they can make things work between them. You will fall in love with these two characters like I did. I recommend this book and series to everyone!! So on that note, I give WICKED COWBOY CHARM 5/5 STARS.

MUST LOVE LIONS BY ALMA BLACK

must love lions cover
Once you go shifter, you never go back…

Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she’s great at her job as a journalist, but it’s never given her the time to find the right man–specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new paranormal dating app he’s created, she can’t believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don’t date. Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the paranormal dating app, Shifter Date, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can’t say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can’t resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It’s more than his pride on the line; it’s his mate.

Warning: Must Love Lions is a paranormal shape-shifter romance. If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren’t your thing, this book isn’t for you. It contains lots of hot sex, a bit of violence, and a lot of witty banter.

DARK PROTECTOR BY KATIE REUS

dark protector cover
He walked away once; he won’t do it again.

Wolf shifter Aldric Kazan is no stranger to pain. Since the loss of his mate a century ago, he won’t allow himself to fall for someone again—not even the feisty female who stirs things in him that he thought were gone long ago. But as a supernatural investigator, he’s forced to team up with the same woman he vowed to stay away from.

She let him in once; she refuses to do it again.

Natalia Cordona refuses to back down from any challenge—even if it means joining forces with Aldric, the sexy and brooding man who won’t get too close. Locating missing vampires before a volatile wars breaks out seems nearly impossible as the duo struggle with their explosive and undeniable attraction. Now it’s up to Natalia and Aldric to trust each other to stop an all-out war from breaking out that would destroy the harmony they’ve all worked so hard for.

Dark Protector (A Werewolf Romance) (Moon Shifter Series Book 6) is a great addition to this series. The characters and story line are very well-developed. When vampires go missing, Aldric, (a shifter) must find them to avert a possible war with the shifters and vampires. Aldric didn’t want to get involved with Natalia even though they are mates, he does not want to lose someone again like his last mate. The more that they are together on this case, he knows he cannot stay away. I loved this book and series! I cannot get enough of this series. If you have not read this series, I recommend that you do so. I give DARK PROTECTOR 5/5 STARS.

Another Awesome book by Carolyn Brown!!! A Heap of Texas Trouble is set in the town of Cadillac, Texas. Carlene owns the lingerie shop called Bless My Bloomers where she makes custom lingerie. When Carlene’s husband Lenny asks her to bring his briefcase to him at the office, she finds a pair of red underwear in his briefcase.  Now Lenny is in A HEAP OF TEXAS TROUBLE and her name is Carlene. The antics that Carlene’s family and friends pull will have you howling with laughter, especially when they try to make a batch of chili for the cook-off. In my opinion Carolyn Brown has not written a bad book. They have always been sweet, sexy, and heartwarming. If you have not read anything of hers, I urge you to do so now. I  guarantee you will enjoy the ride. So, on that note, I give A HEAP OF TEXAS TROUBLE 5/5 STARS.
