The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won the Cup. No one thought they’d do it: they were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two.

Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love. USA Today Bestsellers Robin Covington, Desiree Holt, Kimberly Kincaid, Nana Malone and Virginia Nelson, Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller Angi Morgan, along with Xio Axelrod, Christi Barth, Andie J.

GIVEAWAY! THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTER by Katee Robert

GIVEAWAY! THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTER by Katee Robert

FBI agent, Eden Collins is going home… to catch a killer.  Fans of Audey Harte’s It Takes One and Kendra Elliott’s Bone Secrets series, will devour The Devil’s Daughter, the fast-paced and suspenseful first book, in the Hidden Sins series by NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author Katee Robert.

Growing up in a small town isn’t easy, especially when you’re the daughter of a local cult leader. Ten years ago, Eden Collins left Clear Springs, Montana, and never once looked back. But when the bodies of murdered young women surface, their corpses violated and marked with tattoos worn by her mother’s followers, Eden, now an FBI agent, can’t turn a blind eye. To catch the killer, she’s going to have to return to the fold.

 

Sheriff Zach Owens isn’t comfortable putting Eden in danger, even if she is an elite agent. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to be so attracted to her. As calm and cool as she appears, he knows this can’t be a happy homecoming. Zach wants to protect her—from her mother, the cult, and the evil that lurks behind its locked gates. But Eden is his only key to the tight-lipped group, and she may just be closer to the killer than either one of them suspects…

A STROKE OF MIDNIGHT by Andie J. ChristopherStroke of Midnight by Andie J. Christopher
Series: One Night in South Beach #1
Published by Kensington Publishing Corp. Genres: Contemporary


 

New Year’s Eve in Miami. One night. No names. No going back. Workaholic, Alana Hernandez and former Navy Seal, Cole Roberts have a one night stand. Cole is seeking to soothe his injured heart, Anna is looking for a quick hook up, but ohhhh how life throws a huge wrench in their “perfect” plan when morning comes!

Stroke of Midnight is Ms. Christopher’s debut, and not only has she captured the flavor and spirit of Miami but she has written, in my opinion, a Hero and Heroine who experience a true and realistic romance. I thoroughly enjoyed “watching” Alana & Cole’s relationship unfold. The pacing and story flowed very well. Cole is a dirty talking hero who not only loves Alana very much, but is just as determined to show her that what may have started out as a one night stand, quickly became so much more for him. I felt like Alana and Cole could be a part of my inner circle, that’s just how authentic the romance feels.

Stroke of Midnight is a well written, sexy, hot romance that will have you not only laughing out loud but wishing for your very own Cole. I am eagerly anticipating Alana’s brother, Javi and her sister, Carla’s HEA’s. Kudos on your debut, Ms. Christopher and keep ’em coming! Stroke of Midnight is a perfect combo of romance with a dirty talking hero, a take charge heroine, hot sex & funny story, which I thoroughly enjoyed!

SHADOW RIDER by Christine FeehanShadow Rider by Christine Feehan
Series: Shadow #1
Published by Jove Genres: Paranormal


 

Christine Feehan is a semi new author to me but when I saw this book and read the blurb I really liked how it sounded and of course had to devour it in one sitting. Shadow Rider is the first book in the Shadow series and once I started getting into this new world that Feehan created I was totally hooked. I want to say this story is a contemporary with a paranormal twist. There were no fairies, vampires or even werewolves for that matter, but it was about a family that can mask themselves in shadows which was very unique and intriguing.

 

Stefano is the head of the powerful Ferraro family. He might be the oldest of his siblings but he is one of the most bad ass heroes I have read about in a long time. The shadow walker legacy goes back centuries and they have a hard time finding their other halves so their marriages are usually arranged so the legacy will live on. It just so happens Stefano is about to leave town for a job when he comes across Francesca by mistake and it turns out to be the best thing that has ever happened to him because she is a rider.

 

Francesca has no idea that her life is about to change when Stefano steps in and gives her his coat and some money. She also has no idea that she is a rider. It’s up to Stefano to convince Francesca to accept all of him at her own free will, but it’s going to take some time. Sometimes she finds his bossiness and hard tone a bit scary even if she also thinks he is his most attractive at those moments.

 

Usually during reading a story I always favor one character more than the others but during Shadow Rider I honestly had no favorites because I really liked each and every character. The way Feehan wrote each member of the Ferraro family just worked. They were close and I just really took to how different their personalities were. Stefano was bossy, sexy and had this deadly air around him but he also came off as sweet and charming. Francesca did a great job at holding her ground and gave him sass when he pushed her to do something but I could see her starting to trust him and his word little by little.

 

Everyone loves a good love scene, but oh man did Feehan bring it with each and every one. They are detailed and last over numerous pages without being too wordy. Now don’t get me wrong during the story there was some repeating when it wasn’t needed but I felt it didn’t take away from the story. Shadow Rider is filled with plenty of action on top of the romance that is blooming and really had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The ending sets up for the next book and already I am stalking Feehan’s website to find out when it will be released and who it will be about. If you haven’t picked up Shadow Rider I would do so today and get to know Stefano and Francesca.

UNDER THE SURFACE by Anne CalhounUnder the Surface by Anne Calhoun
Series: Alpha Ops #4
Published by St. Martin's Press Genres: Suspense


 

When I stared Under The Surface by Anne Calhoun I originally thought this was the first book in a new series but it turns out this is the fourth book in the Alpha Ops series. Since I haven’t read the previous books I feared that I would be lost but I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t feel that way and was glad this could be read as a standalone.

 

Eve Webber was a former cocktail waitress turned business owner of Eye Candy which caters mostly to the female population due to the hot male employees. Eve has been looking for a new bartender since she had to let the last one go since he didn’t follow the rule not to mess with the customers. When “Chad” walks into Eye Candy looking for work Eve is attracted to him and figures it’s only a matter of time before she gets him in bed, but she has other important things going on in her life, like an old friend who wants to launder money through her business.

 

Detective Matt Dorchester is used to undercover assignments and is damn good at his job. He has all the skills that will pass for being a good bartender, but what he doesn’t expect is the attraction he feels for Eve. He knows she is working with them but the police department doesn’t fully trust her so keeping an eye on her is what he plans to do. The more time Matt, aka Chad, spends with her the harder it is to keep his cover, but all bets are off when someone starts threatening her life. Now trying to keep Eve safe and out of harm’s way is his new mission but if she lands in between his sheets the lines might blur.

 

I really liked Eve from the beginning. She’s smart, funny and quick on her feet. With her background I wasn’t sure what kind of heroine she would turn out to be but I loved her and it only made her more likable. Matt was a little on the quiet side and more serious but he had to be because of his line of work. I love how dedicated he was not only to his family but his job. He showed strength in so many ways and he was the complete opposite of Eve’s character.

 

Since this was a romantic suspense the love scenes were a little dialed down, but that didn’t matter because the story really entranced and had me not wanting to put it down. Ms. Calhoun focused more on the romance that was building instead of the suspense which I was okay with. The romance starts off on the slow side with a few heated kisses and cute banter but once these two got started the chemistry started to flow and the passion started to rise.

 

The secondary characters also stood out in their own way, but I wasn’t really focused on them while reading Under The Surface. I’m pretty sure The Alpha Ops series main focus will be the men and women of the police department protecting the hero/ heroine from whatever is in store for them. Already I’m looking forward to see where the Alpha Ops series will go and who will be next to find their happily ever after.
