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.

REVIEW – LEGAL WOLF’S MATE

In Eve Langlais’s Legal Wolf’s Mate—previously published in the anthology Growl— taking on a pro bono murder case isn’t a problem for a lawyer who enjoys a challenge. Discovering his new client is his mate? A tad more complicated. Gavin has no intention of settling down, especially not with a woman accused of murder. But the beautiful, fiery Megan has his blood boiling and his heart racing, and it doesn’t take Gavin long to know that his fate is sealed…

Legal Wolf’s Mate is a masterpiece of work! The characters and story line are well-developed. If you are looking for  quick read! Look no farther. It will have you chuckling in no time. The characters and story line are well-developed, with a great cast of characters. Megan has been accused of killing her boss and has gone to Gavin’s law firm for help. When Gavin meets Megan he immediately knows that she is his mate. Now he has to help her at all cost. When she goes home and finds out that her house has been ransacked, she goes to Gavin to help her. That  was a great idea, for later there is a body found in her house. With Megan staying with Gavin all night helps to clear her of the murder of the person in her home. I love Eve Langlais! Her books are wonderful! I loved this book and series. I give LEGAL WOLF’S MATE 5/5 stars.

REVIEW – RENEGADE DRAGON BY LOLITA LOPEZ

renegade dragon - cover
NOTHING HOTTER THAN DRAGON’S FIRE

When her best friend disappears, bio-engineering student Eris Jones embarks on the quest of her life. Her search leads to a secluded estate where she experiences visions of a powerful, winged creature who’s transformed into a tall, dangerously sexy man at her touch. But the feel of his rock-hard abs and lean, sinewy arms tells Eris this is no dream . . . it’s real.

Niko Drakon is dangerous and he knows it. When the call to mate is too strong, he has no choice but to lock himself away in his basement saferoom. Otherwise, people get hurt. The moment Eris walks into his home, nothing can keep him from claiming her. However, she could also be the key to bringing down the dragons’ greatest enemy, which leaves Niko with a devastating choice: keep Eris for himself or lose her to the cause he’s served for most of his life . . .
25,000 words.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Renegade Dragon (Dragon Heat Book 4) is a roller coaster of a ride! The story line and character development are well-developed. Eris is looking for her best friend who went missing. The bread crumbs of information leads her to an estate that is secluded from anyone else. Nikos is locked away to protect himself during his mating heat. He watches Eris on the security camera as she breaks into the house. When she eats a golden apple from the sacred tree, he must kill her. When he is standing in front of her he notices that she is his mate. If you have not read any of the books in this series, I would recommend starting with the first book so you will not be lost. On that note, I loved the book and give RENEGADE DRAGON 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW -CURSE ON THE LAND BY FAITH HUNTER

curse on the land cover
Set in the same world as Faith Hunter’s New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, the second Soulwood novel tells the story of a woman whose power comes from deep within the earth…

Before Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she had no one to rely on, finding strength only in her arcane connection to the dark woods around her. But now she has friends in the newly formed PsyLED team to keep her grounded—even if being part of the agency responsible for policing paranormals comes with dangers of its own….

After training at the PsyLED academy, Nell returns home to her woods to find the land feeling sick and restless. And that sickness is spreading. With the help of her team, under the leadership of agent Rick LaFleur, Nell tries to determine the cause. But nothing can prepare them for the evil that awaits: an entity that feeds on death itself. And it wants more….

From the Paperback edition.

Curse on the Land (A Soulwood Novel) is phenomenal!! Nell has grown some since the last book. Things have gotten weird. They are called out when a group of ducks are found swimming in a constant circle and others are coming up dead. Nell’s power is getting stronger and she has to learn to use it as she goes along, but when a curse is put on the land, she better learn fast. With the full moon coming up in a few days, things will start to get hairy and she might be a few people short on the case. I loved the ending with Rick, and that is all I will say about it. I love Faith’s writing and the way she presents Nell’s world. The world building is flawless. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for Nell and the gang next. If you have not picked up a Faith Hunter book, then you don’t know what you are missing. Go out and get your copy today!! I loved this book and give  CURSE ON THE LAND 5/5 STARS.
