The Lycan Hunter (Gardinian World #1) by Kelsey Jordan




Blurb:
When Alexis James arrives at her first assignment in months, she anticipates the danger and violence rife in her calling as a Lycan Hunter. What she doesn’t expect is a handsome, blue-eyed wolf saving her life and kidnapping her. Surrounded by the enemy, Alexis must not only survive her prisoners but the bonds of a different sort that begin to form against her will. 
Mikko Kyran was chosen by the gods to lead his pack, and he has made it his mission to end the eight thousand years of war plaguing his people. The Alpha never suspected that the key to the prophecy ending the Forever War would be held by a smart-mouthed, sexy Hunter determined to kill him. 
Can two people from different worlds set aside everything they know about one another long enough to survive retribution from the Hunters, the pack, and the gods? Or will their differences start a war that neither can win?

My review:
The Lycan Hunter is the first in a series by new to me author Kelsey Jordan. The “Forever War” between Lycans and Hunters has been going on for millennia and Lycan Kyran and HunterAlexis had hoped that their pairing was the fulfilling of a prophecy that would end the killing. Follow them as they make their way in a fantastic world filled with Gods who have a personal relationship to their charges. This book will transport you into an intense battle as Alexis and Kyran adjust to a new reality. This book is a terrific fantasy and I look forward to the next installment.

Good Luck with That by Kristan Higgins




Blurb:
Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

My review:
Good Luck with That is one of the most powerful books I’ve read in a long time. It is sweet and sad and empowering. It touches on a subject we all deal with to some degree and encourages us to do what we can to learn not to judge ourselves and others so harshly and just maybe learn to love and accept ourselves flaws and all. I encourage everyone to read this.

The Wolf's Bandit: Paranormal Shifter Romance: A Howls Romance by Milly Taiden




The Wolf's Bandit: Paranormal Shifter Romance: A Howls Romance by Milly Taiden

Blurb:
Robyn Loxley is determined to save every homeless child she can find, even if she has to break the law to do it. Since the royal foundation rudely turned her down, her target has become their crown jewels. She needs only one more job before she’s done for good.

Wolf shifter Aitan Hansen is the crown prince of a small country where he runs his royal foundation and takes care of his shifter town. He comes to the U.S. to find who has been stealing his family heirlooms. He’s completely unprepared to meet his mate, especially when he suspects her of being the thief.


With the opportunity to score a lucrative piece of artwork, Robyn jumps at the chance. The problem is Aitan isn’t the only one interested in her night job. Her black-market dealer doesn’t want to share profits any longer and he’ll do whatever needed to get her latest heist, even taking her with the merchandise. 

Reader's Note: This shifterfied modern take on a fairytale is full of action and romance...enjoy!

My review:
Robyn Loxley robs from the rich and gives to the poor. The prince is out to get her. Oh what a merry chase it is. I don’t quite remember the prince as being so sexy or polite for that matter but in this retelling of Robin Hood he is and I like it.  A sweet and sexy romp.

My review:
Love Undercover is a sexy romantic suspense with a sharp female lead and a drool worthy bad boy hero. This book has twists and turns and just when you think you know what is going to happen the author slips in something new. This story is sure to get your heart rate up.

A Plantation, a Tour Guide, and a Poltergeist: Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mysteries Book 8 by CC Dragon


A Plantation, a Tour Guide, and a Poltergeist: Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mysteries Book 8 by CC Dragon

Blurb:
Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mysteries Book 8 

Ghosts never forget, rarely forgive, and frequently refuse to move on. 
While Deanna is helping her brother settle in, her friends relationships give her reasons to worry and celebrate—depending on the couple. 
Work, however, never stops. 
The case that falls in her lap at the Hundred Willows Plantation is truly disturbing. The ghosts have become restless—attacking tourists and tour guides. While the family denies there is anything haunting the antebellum mansion, they can’t hide the truth from Deanna. 
The plantations dark history repeats itself. Specific scenes playing out over and over. That isn’t the worst of it. 
It’s when the supernatural residents try to interact with humans that injury and death become a recurring theme for the living. 
The only way to change the pattern is for Deanna to put herself in the path of anger, attack, and Death (wearing high heels) itself. 

My review:
Deanna and the gang are back and things are a little tense. Deannas brother Frankie is there to be trained but is having issues taking instruction from his sister. Relationship fun abounds and there is a heck of a haunting for them to explore. An exciting addition to the series.

The Stronghold Doms Series by Golden Angel



 The Stronghold Doms Series by Golden Angel

I did something I haven’t done in a while. I downloaded The Sassy Submissive first in The Stronghold Doms Series by Golden Angel for free from Amazon. I was sucked in and ended up buying the entire series to date. I like that we get to hang out with an incredibly engaging and eclectic group and get to watch them find love and acceptance. The sex is hot but isn’t the point of the stories. If you get the chance check out this series.

1. The Sassy Submissive
2. Taming the Tease
2.5 On His Knees
3. Mastering Lexie
3.5 Pieces of Stronghold
4. Breaking the Chain
5. Bound to the Past
6. Stripping the Sub
7. Tempting the Domme
8. Hardcore Vanilla (Coming 2018)

Bearback Lumberjack: Paranormal Dating Agency by Liv Brywood




Blurb:
Angela 

I can’t stand living in the city. I need a man who knows how to use his wood. A lumberjack would be perfect. The matchmaker’s sending me deep into the forest to meet one. His pictures are panty-dropping hot, but his smile doesn’t reach his eyes. He’s either a serial killer, or a man who understands what it’s like to lose love. Either way, I’m going to find out. 

Jagger 

My brother won’t stop bitching at me about finding a mate. To appease him, I’ve agreed to let some woman stay with me. Two weeks. I only have to endure two weeks, then I’m getting rid of her. But when I see her for the first time, my bear loses its mind. She might be my mate, but I’m too scared to fall in love again. She wants a man who can handle her curves. I want a woman who doesn’t want strings. It’s up to fate to decide our destiny. 

My review:
He doesn’t want a mate and she is looking for one. When Gerri puts these two bear shifters together in the middle of the woods there are enough sparks to light a forest fire.
