Rising Blood by Bronwyn Green

 

The hunt is on…

 

Newly reluctant partnered Vampire Hunters, Harper Yovanoff and Elliot Zielin are in hot pursuit of a very powerful, dangerous vampire who has maliciously been targeting and turning hunters into the very thing they hunt.  And, to complicate matters, a strong attraction is rapidly brewing between Harper and Elliot.  With many lives on the line, will they be able to put their conflicts aside and work together to put a stop to the evilness at hand.

 

If you are looking for a vampire storyline filled with a kick-ass heroine and an overly confident hero, then Rising Blood is just what the doctor ordered.  I will admit there were times where I wanted to smack Elliot upside the head because of his self-assured attitude.  I really enjoyed watching Elliot win Harper’s heart even before she consciously admits her true feelings.  My only request is I wish the plot could have been longer, lengthwise, for more character development.

 

 

Tempted To Death Jessica Jarman

 

Secrets come to light…

 

Tara Wilcox is hiding a secret and because of it she runs away from the two men she loves – Paranormal Hunters, Luca Castell and Oliver Gordon.  Now Tara is back and reveals her secret to her lovers.  Will Luca and Oliver welcome Tara back with open arms or will they destroy her because of the monster that hides within?

 

Overall, I liked Tempted To Death; however, I did not feel the sincere connection between Tara, Luca, and Oliver.  Whereas, the love is believable between Luca and Oliver; Tara almost feels like a third wheel in their threesome relationship. I can tell that each man loves her for who she is and that she loves them; however something was missing for me.  Nevertheless, the plot is fascinating, the sexual encounters are super-hot and the characters are amiable.  Note: this is a MMF and it contains MM love scenes.

 

 

Grave Measures by Kris Norris

 

Not all souls go peacefully …

 

Supernatural Hunters, Arrynn Baker and Daniel Cartwright now have first-hand knowledge of what it feels like to be a victim of an obnoxious supernatural being.  Daniel is being hunted by the ghost of his dead girlfriend.  Dealing with this issue brings Daniel and Arrynn closer together awakening their secret desire to cross the professional line and become lovers.  Will Daniel and Arryan be able to banish his dead girlfriend’s spirit once and for all before she succeeds in completing her mission of bringing Daniel with her into afterlife?

 

This novel gives me food for thought.  Grave Measures is edgy and interesting with some chilling tidbits thrown into the mix.  The plot is not like a horror movie type of scary per say, but it does have a things that go bump in the night type of flair.  Arrynn is my kind of heroine.  She is no shrinking violet and refuses to allow anyone, whether living or not, to take her man.  Likewise, Daniel is a strong, yet honest type of guy who is unwillingly drawn into a severe situation.  Together they are a force to be reckoned with both in and out of bed.  All in all, a very good read.

 

 

Next Lifetime by Paige Prince

 

Another chance at everlasting love…

 

Sarah, now known as Caitlin, is a witch/vampire hybrid.  In order to save her then lover, William, from the evil clutches of Bastian, a malicious vampire sire, Sarah casts a spell for him to be return to her in the future.  Fast forward a hundred years later, William is reborn as Lucas, a very powerful vampire hunter who is determined to rid the world of all vampires.  And, to make matters worse, Bastian is back with a vengeance determined to finish what he started over a century ago.  Will there be a happily-ever-after for Caitlin and Lucas when he discovers she vampire?  And more importantly, will they be able to get rid of Bastian once and for all?

 

The concept of this novel is good versus evil along with the desire to never give up.  Next Lifetime is a profound story that will pull at your heart.  I cannot imagine what it would be like to have eternal life with the one you love by your side.  Paige Prince does a great job of expressing it.  I sincerely sense the turmoil that Sarah/Caitlin feels at the loss of her beloved, not once but twice, before he is reborn a third time in the form of a very powerful Lucas.  The road to the rediscovery of love and trust is a difficult one, especially for Lucas.  Since she has fought the battle for so long, Caitlin never once gives up on Lucas – even when he is trying to terminate her because she is not human.  This is one tale not to be missed.  Enjoy!

Another dead body-another victim of convicted serial killer, John Davies. There's just one problem-Davies is dead. Special Agent Mallory Reeves knows there must be a logical explanation for the body uncovered in a back alley of Seattle's urban district. The markings, the pose, the evidence-it all points to one man-John Davies. But seeing as Davies was just executed for his crimes, the new case appears to be the work of a ghost. Unfortunately, Davies isn't the only invisible man in Mallory's life. Just her luck, the Bureau wants another agent added to the team, one who worked the original case. And it's no coincidence that it's Sawyer Kent-her estranged husband. Special Agent Sawyer Kent has a lot of questions and few answers, including if he's even got a shot at regaining the affection of the woman he loves. It seems a feat more impossible than the case they're working, especially since it doesn't look as if Mallory's in the mood to welcome him back home. But when the killer starts evolving, adding nuances to his crimes that are aimed directly at Mallory, Sawyer's left with only one course of action. Find the bastard before she becomes his next victim.

Special Agent Mallory Reeves believes she is just finishing a job as she prepares to watch the execution of a killer she helped capture.  Mallory is trying very hard to not remember just how much that arrest cost her.  She believes this is the ultimate end of the matter until she is pulled away from the execution and to a murder scene that earmarks the man she just watch being prepared for execution.  What the heck is going on? 

Special Agent Sawyer Kent left Seattle after the capture of John Davies, a murdering madman.  Sawyer left while his partner and lover, Mallory, was still recovering in the hospital believing it was the best option then.  However, now it appears that a dead man is on another murdering rampage and this time he seems to be trying to hurt Mallory by his actions.  Sawyer might not know what the situation is between him and Mallory, but he is not going to allow anyone to cause her such pain. 

Mallory is in a serious dilemma when Sawyer shows back up and is assigned to her and her new partner to solve this latest murder puzzle.  Sawyer is acting like she should know why he left like he did and Mallory’s body is all about them taking up where they left off but her mind is not so willing to forgive.  Both Sawyer and Mallory are experiencing the intense heat of their feelings while working to solve the mystery of how a man who was executed could be murdering people and know so much about Mallory and her past.  When the murders become close and personal to Mallory, it appears she might be on the hit list.  Sawyer and Mallory will put their skill and minds together in order to find out who is really behind these murders and why they are so targeted to Mallory.

Two special agents with a hot and heavy past must solve two things at the same time – the hurdles in front of their love and a murder mystery – before one of them runs out of time.  Deadly Deception brings Mallory and Sawyer back into contact after their explosive love affair.  I certainly felt that the air was explosive when Sawyer and Mallory were brought back together, but I wasn’t sure if that heat would lead to more anger or into bed.  I found out quickly enough that their passion was hotter than the misunderstandings that stood between them.  This would have been hard enough to get through, but when you throw on that they had to find a killer before he got to Mallory it made their journey so much harder and hotter.  I love how the clues were sprinkled throughout the story and seriously didn’t come up with the killer in my mind until it was revealed.  I love it when that happens.  I also loved how this time Mallory and Sawyer took the time to learn more about each other’s past instead of being rolled over by the passion.  Deadly Deception is intriguing in a couple of ways – a doozy of a murder mystery and a pair of lovers given a second chance to keep the love they found during their dangerous jobs.
