Torel: Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides (Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides #5) by Susan Hayes


Torel: Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides (Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides #5) by Susan Hayes

Blurb:
What do you do when your planet runs out of women? Send for takeout, of course. 

Torel is the best medical officer in the Pyrosian fleet, but being the best comes with a cost. When the queen orders him to apply to Star-Crossed Dating, he’s relieved when there’s no match for him among the human females of Earth. He doesn’t have time for that kind of distraction. 

Mated or not, he’s on his way to Earth to help newly-mated females adjust to the life awaiting them on Pyros. All he has to do is keep them healthy and happy during the voyage home. It should be the easiest assignment of his career.

This book contains a widow determined to never fall in love again, and a doctor who is about to discover that when it comes to the heart, he’s still got a lot to learn.

My review:

Sometimes love is the best medicine. Haley lost her husband to cancer and is afraid of facing that hurt ever again. She isn’t against getting a little something in the bedroom but is determined not to allow her heart to get involved. She never counted on Torel, doctor to the Pyrosian royals. Torel is committed to his job and his people and has no time for love. He never counted on Haley. These two were bound to be and it was fun watching them figure that out.

Tarjen: Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides (Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides #4) by Susan Hayes


Tarjen: Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides (Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides #4) by Susan Hayes

Blurb:
What do you do when your planet runs out of women? Send for takeout, of course. 

Tarjen never expected to go to Earth again. The first time, he was there to protect Crown Prince Joran as he claimed his mate and returned her to Pyros. This time, Tarjen is on his way to claim a mate of his own. 

He’s studied human courtship behaviour, memorized his match’s file from the Star-Crossed Dating database, and prepared himself for the moment he’ll meet his mate. He’s planned everything perfectly so that nothing can go wrong. Not like the last time they were here… 

This book contains a single mother who doesn’t believe in happy endings and a royal bodyguard who does everything by the book – until the universe blows up the book, his plans, and part of a city block. 

My review:
A soldier plans for all contingencies so when Tarjen finds his match in a human woman he plans to woo and win her. He no sooner lands on Earth when all his plans go up in smoke and he will have to win Aria the old fashioned way. This is a fun addition to the series.

The Last Sword Maker (The Course of Empire Series) by Brian Nelson



                                                                                                  

Blurb:
In the high mountains of Tibet, rumors are spreading. People whisper of an outbreak, of thousands of dead, of bodies pushed into mass graves. It is some strange new disease … a disease, they say, that can kill in minutes. 

The Chinese government says the rumors aren’t true, but no one is allowed in or out of Tibet. 

At the Pentagon, Admiral James Curtiss is called to an emergency meeting. Satellite images prove that a massive genocide is underway, and an American spy has made a startling discovery. This is no disease. It’s a weapons test. Chinese scientists have developed a way to kill based on a person’s genetic traits. But that is only the tip of the iceberg. The success of their new weapon proves that the Chinese are nearing “Replication”—a revolutionary breakthrough that will tip the global balance of power and change the way wars are waged. 

Now the US must scramble to catch up before it is too late. Admiral Curtiss gathers the nation’s top scientists, including a promising young graduate student named Eric Hill who just might hold the missing piece to the replication puzzle. Soon Hill and his colleague Jane Hunter are caught up in a deadly game of sabotage as the two nations strive to be the first to reach the coveted goal. But in their headlong race, they create something unexpected … something the world has never seen and something more powerful than they had ever imagined. 

The Last Sword Maker is an exciting globe-trotting thriller with unforgettable characters that depicts a haunting vision of the future of warfare.

My review:
The Last Sword Maker is a terrific techno-thriller that will keep you thinking long after the last page. With today’s ever increasing dependency on technology to keep us safe Brian Nelson asks the question what happens when nanotechnology becomes independent of man? The Last Sword Maker gives us a scary possible scenario that will keep you flipping pages and up long past your bedtime.

Unhallowed Murder: A Murder-Mystery Romance (Chattanooga Supernaturals #8) by Candace Blevins




Blurb:
It’s Halloween night and the Haunted Corn Maze is a madhouse. However, no one knows one of the zombies in the diorama is a dead body. There’s a reason it looks so real. 

Lieutenant Veronica Woods is dressed as a Power Ranger, as are her four friends, enjoying the frights and scares in the chill autumn air. Ronnie is a tiger-shifter, and her sense of smell points her to the body, but there’s no logical reason for her to climb the small hill and traipse through the display. At least, not until she scents a group of vampires, and she bullies and coerces one of them into helping her report the crime so she can begin her investigation. 

Josef is an ancient vampire with a military mindset. He was a general in his human life, and now he’s head of security for one of the most powerful vampires alive. He hasn’t had a personal relationship in decades, and has no interest in one, but the adorable little tiger shifter walks like a sex kitten and issues orders like a military general. Her people obviously respect her, and he finds he doesn’t want to leave her side when she’s ready to turn him loose.

NOTE: Unhallowed Murder can be read as a stand-alone. 

My review:
I LOVED THIS STORY! This may be the most vanilla thing I’ve read from this author but that doesn’t make it any less sexy or fun to read. We have an interesting murder, an ancient vampire and a were tiger police lieutenant. This story is terrific and I can’t say much without spoilers but if you like strong women and smart men you will totally enjoy this. This story deals with the worst type of humans but the author adds in enough comic relief to keep it from being too dark.

Beneath the Fallen City (The Omni Towers #1) by Jamie A. Waters




Blurb:
In the shadows of the towers, your only hope is to scavenge for the truth...

One hundred and fifty years after the earth was ravaged by war, the two self-sustaining towers built by OmniLab continue to offer a safe haven for those who paid the hefty price to assure their family's survival. But on the surface, there are others who have survived over the years struggling to barter and trade artifacts found within the ruins of the crumbling cities in exchange for critical supplies.

When Kayla, a ruin rat skilled in computer hacking and scavenging, discovers a strange artifact known as The Aurelia Data Cube, she finds herself inadvertently caught up in a series of events that threatens the lives of the mysterious and elusive people within OmniLab.

Carl, an unorthodox trader with a head for business, is determined to eradicate the corruption amongst his OmniLab brethren and has no qualms about using Kayla to do it. Unfortunately, he wasn't counting on the vastness of the corruption or his own feelings for the headstrong woman who turns his life upside down.

Caught between the life she knew and a dangerous world that's claimed her as their own, Kayla learns the fearful truth behind just how far one man will go to obtain power and how far she'll go to survive.

My review:
Beneath the Fallen City is the first in what looks to be a terrific series. The author has created a vivid dystopian world with a class system, a strong heroine and a love triangle. I really liked Kayla she is smart, spunky and strong. I really enjoyed this story and am ready to dive into the next book.

Burning For You (Westmore Wolves #3) by Erzabet Bishop




Blurb:
Where there’s smoke, there’s dragon fire. 

Ordinary girl. Extraordinary fate. 

Violet Winters is having a less than perfect day. Her parents are meddling with her love life (again), her wintery magic is kaput and her vivid dreams are coming far too close to reality. When she falls through the ice after seeing her fiancĂ© all close and snuggly with a fellow polar bear, all bets are off. Is she better off dead or will she get another chance at life when a Grimare angel rescues her from her chosen fate? 

Fire meets ice and passions ignite. 

Dante is a dragon on a mission: fight the string of strange fires springing up around Westmore and find a mate. When his Captain decides to have the men pose for social media shots to garner attention for the station, Dante finds himself in the middle of a steady stream of women after his special strategically placed “fire hose.” 

At Hot Whips CafĂ© to haggle with the owner for counter space for their new firemen calendar, he meets a woman who sets his inner scales on fire. Can he save her from the machinations of the Fates or will she die a second time by the very threat Dante fights against? 

A dragon’s panty melting kiss may just be the wow this curvy girl needs. 

My review:
I didn’t know this was part of a series when I picked it up but it stands well on its own. This is a sweet fantasy giving a winter elf a second chance at life and love with a hot dragon shifter. I really enjoyed watching Violet come into her own.

Forgiveness For My Mate: Sassy Ever After (Sanctuary for My Mate Book 1) by Terri A. Wilson




Blurb:
Tatum’s perfect, well-planned life crashed one piece at a time. After small mistakes led to bigger ones, she’s ready to give up and walk away from the only dream she ever knew. A trip to a New Mexico retreat sounds like the best way to pull herself together. Then she met Connor, a hot falcon shifter who shows her a whole new world full of possibilities she never imagined. Connor’s falcon claimed her at first glance. Now faced with her inner demons, can she learn to forgive herself and stop the cycle of self-destruction? Will his love be enough to calm the anxiety and fears that prevent her from finding the life she never knew she wanted?

My review:
Forgiveness For My Mate is the first I’ve read from new to me author Terri A. Wilson but I assure you it won’t be the last. This story tells of a woman pushing herself to an unrealistic ideal of perfection in an attempt to honor her fathers legacy. When things implode as things are want to do Tatum heads out to the serenity of a New Mexico retreat in an attempt to re-evaluate and get on a better path. When she meets former model (and falcon shifter) Connor she isn’t looking for forever but what if that is the path she needs to be on.
I think everyone has met a Tatum. Driven to succeed. Perfectionist. But when they can achieve perfection they either crash and burn or create new goals. The author made Tatum real and I really enjoyed this story.
