dark wolf returning by rhyannon byrd
Book Description
Publication Date: August 1, 2014
When werewolf Eli Drake is banished from his pack, he leaves a devastated and heartbroken Carla Reyes behind. Three torturous years later, she tracks him down to a hole-in-the-wall Texas bar—the pack is in trouble and war is on the horizon. Carla needs Eli’s help, but wants nothing more to do with him—even though he’s as ruthless, domineering and sexy as ever….

Eli hasn’t forgotten Carla. And the partial bite he gave her their last night together has had him lying awake nights imagining her sumptuous curves and supple lips. But Carla wants their bond broken, no matter the cost. Now, as they join forces, dare Eli hope that he can claim a future he never dreamed possible?

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

DARK WOLF RETURNING is a fun, fast sexy read. The sexual tension between Eli and Carla is hot. Three years ago Eli was banished from the pack for killing one of his sister’s rapist. Also he left before he could finish the lifemate bond, and Eli and Carla fill the need to complete it, but that will have to wait until they defeat the Whiteclaw pack, who are attacking the pack. Carla is mad that Eli left her and did not give her the choice of going with him. Now she just wants his help for the pack and then she will get rid of this partial bond and Eli forever. Eli has other ideas, he want to complete the bond and have her by his side forever. They both will have to deal with the past and their broken heart to the happiness they both deserve. This book had well-developed characters and story line that pulls you in and won’t let go until you are finished. I give  DARK WOLF RETURNING 5/5 stars. I am now going to have to go back and read the other books in this series, and I cannot wait until the next in the series Dark Wolf Running (Bloodrunners Book 5) , AND Blood Wolf Dawning.

A good reason to be bad… Librarian Sophie Heyer has walked the straight and narrow her entire life to make up for her mother’s mistakes. But in tiny Jackson Hole, Wyoming, juicy gossip doesn’t just fade away. Falling hard for the sexiest biker who’s ever ridden into town would undo everything she’s worked for. And to add insult to injury, the alluring stranger is none other than Alex Bishop—the son of the man Sophie’s mother abandoned her family for. He may be temptation on wheels, but Sophie’s not looking for trouble! Maybe Sophie’s buttoned-up facade fools some, but Alex knows a naughty smile when he sees one. Despite their parents’ checkered pasts, he’s willing to take some risks to find out the truth about the town librarian.

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE – “BACK TO BUCKHORN” BY LORI FOSTER

back to buckhorn by lori foster
Book Description
Publication Date: June 2, 2014
From New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster comes a sizzling new Buckhorn Brothers novella

For odd-girl-out Zoey Hodge, the best thing about Buckhorn, Kentucky, was leaving it behind. And now she’s back—at least until she can nurse her mother back to health and hightail it out of there anew. But there’s one person she doesn’t mind seeing again. Garrett Hudson was one of the few who was always kind to her. Now he’s a firefighter—still one of the good guys, but with a sexy alpha charm that’s tempting her inner bad girl.

In school, Zoey was smart, witty and unafraid to be herself. Garrett fell hard back then, and he’s falling even faster now. As far as he’s concerned, there are all kinds of reasons Zoey should stick around. Her pet grooming business. Her mom. And the chance for him to prove that he can be her real-life hero in every way that matters….

Look for more titles in the Buckhorn Brothers series, available now from Lori Foster and Harlequin HQN: Buckhorn Beginnings, Forever Buckhorn, The Buckhorn Legacy and the novella “Buckhorn Ever After” in the Animal Attraction anthology.

BACK TO BUCKHORN was a quick, fun read, with a well-developed story line and characters. For Zoey going back to Buckhorn is hard for her to do, because everyone still blames her for the death of her boyfriend in high school. Her Mom needs her so she will just have to deal with anything that comes her way. Expecting her best friend to pick her up at the airport she is in for a surprise when her friends brother, Garrett, is waiting for her. He was always kind to her in school, but what she does not know is he has always had a secret crush on her. When she gets to town things start to heat up, and I don’t mean the random camp fire with fireworks. How can Garrett convince Zoey that they belong together? I loved BACK TO BUCKHORN  and I give it 5/5 stars.

The hunter becomes the hunted. . . .

West Grayer is done killing. She defeated her Alternate, a twin raised by another family, and proved she’s worthy of a future. She’s ready to move on with her life.

The Board has other plans. They want her to kill one last time, and offer her a deal worth killing for. But when West recognizes her target as a ghost from her past, she realizes she’s in over her head. The Board is lying, and West will have to uncover the truth of the past to secure her future.

How far will the Board go to keep their secrets safe? And how far will West go to save those she loves? With nonstop action and surprising twists, Elsie Chapman’s intoxicating sequel to Dualed reveals everything.

DIVIDED is a thrilling, action packed read. I loved the story line and the characters. Chapman has created an awesome world. We start off with West Grayer trying to live a normal life, and she is done being a killer for hire. West has grown a lot from what her character was at first. She is making more mature, tough decisions that help to define her character. The Board will not just let her live her quiet life, and reels her back into  her previous life. DIVIDED is action packed and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I give it 4/5 stars.
