No matter how much she wants to deny it, Samantha Irving is a witch.  After yet another failed attempt of regulating her newly found magic, Samantha escapes to a secluded cabin in the mountains in order to regain some normalcy in her life.  But, it seems that an evil force refuses to allow her to live in harmony.

 

As a favor to a friend, Luca Macquarie is on a mission to safely return Samantha Irving to her coven in New Orleans.  Easy, right?  Wrong!  Not only did Samantha refuse to willing return; but, a lethal vampire is determined to use Samantha to find an amulet that can wreak havoc upon the immortal kind.  And, to make matters more complicated for Luca, he instantly and completely falls head over heels in love with Samantha.

 

Will Luca and Samantha be able to find and destroy the amulet before the evil vampire succeeds with his malicious plan?  And, more importantly, will Luca and Samantha give in to the undeniable desire that is brewing out of control between them.

 

Luca’s Magic Embrace is the second installment in Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans series and let me tell you that she has taken it to a whole new level.  I have become an instant fan!  Ms. Grosso has the knack for immediately grabbing my attention and successfully holding it until the conclusion makes it appearance.  She has managed to create a flawless blend of gripping suspense and erotic play with humorous undertones thrown into the mix.  I simply could not get enough of this page-turner.  The thrilling uncertainty had me biting my nails, all while the steamy passion shown between Luca and Samantha had me fanning my face with heated desire.  My emotions were all over the place and that is why I am Joyfully Recommending Luca’s Magic Embrace!

Sydney Willows is the lead detective on the investigation of a series of ritualistic murders in Philadelphia.  The latest murder involves the paranormal kind – blood drained by a vampire to be exact.  Reluctantly, Sydney is forced to work the case with the Paranormal City Alternative Police.

 

By any means necessary, Kade Issacson will hunt down and eliminate the rogue vampire who is killing innocent human victims – even if that means working with the human police force to get the job done.  While working the case, Kade never would have thought that he would find his mate in his human partner, Sydney Willows.  Now, the killer has turned its deadly sight on Sydney as its next prey.  Kade is more determined than ever to eliminate the before he loses his newly found mate forever.

 

Wow!  For a debut novel, Kym Grosso comes out swinging hard with Kade’s Dark Embrace.  The storyline has it all:  non-stop action, a suspenseful thrilling plot, a lethal villain, a kick-ass heroine, a strong-willed hero, steamy-hot romance, and awesome secondary characters that are screaming for their own featured tale.  I simply could not put this book down until the very last word was read.  The plot is well thought out with shocking twists and turns that will have you hanging on to the edge of your seat with pure excitement.  In addition to the remarkable crime story, the romance between Kade and Sydney is very passionate and lustful in nature.  I could not get enough of this dynamic couple.  Regardless, if featured as an individual or as a twosome, Kade and Sydney are determined, clever, and a force to be reckoned with.  All in all, I joyfully recommend Kade’s Dark Embrace!

Lycan, Jesse Stone, has been captured by a crazed bunch of scientists and is destined to be their experiment.  Jesse refuses to give in to their demands for a harvesting sample and is just waiting for them to kill him.  What Jesse doesn’t realize is that the scientists have observed him watching the woman who brings his food.  When they catch Jesse eyeing the woman’s body, they know they have discovered his weakness.

 

Erin Maddox is appalled to learn that the scientists she works for want her to have sexual relations with Jesse Stone in order to extract his sperm.  When Erin adamantly refuses, she is injected with a solution that makes her immediately, and agonizingly, aroused.  There is now only one way to stop the pain that impacts her entire body and she allows herself to be let into Jesse’s holding cell.

 

The one woman Jesse has been longing for is unbearably aroused and in his cell.  Unable to stop himself, Jesse draws Erin into an animalistic, passionate embrace.  After their ardent mating session comes to an end, Erin is torn from Jesse’s side and he is fed vicious lies.  Jesse vows, with every cell in his body, to exact revenge when he is free.

 

Wolfen Domination by Celeste Anwar was one of the darkest books I have read in a long time.  The characters had to fight so hard to come to grips with their feelings for each other that when they finally admitted to caring, I was left emotionally drained.  Jesse had to redeem himself in my eyes because of the way he treated Erin when she helped him escape.  Lucky for him, he came through with flying colors.  As for Erin, I thought her quite brave, especially when surrounded by a pack of howling wolves.

 

Wolfen Domination was the first book I have ever read by Celeste Anwar and I can say without a doubt that it won’t be the last.  I’m going to be scouring Ms. Anwar’s backlist to see what else she has to offer.  Wolfen Domination kept me on the edge of my seat and I am sure that readers who are fans of fast-paced, action werewolf tales will enjoy it as well.

When Ivy receives a job offer from Grant, the mayor of Mystic Springs, she jumps on it without ever seeing the town.  Little does she know it’s not her skills as a hotel manager the people of Mystic Springs are interested in.  Ivy’s the woman prophesied to rejuvenate the town’s drying spring, a spring that’s vital to the wellbeing of the Mystic Springs shifters.

 

Grant Grayson is one of those shifters, but he’s not quite sure he believes there’s a magical woman out there who can save the springs.  Then he meets Ivy, and suddenly his protective – and other – instincts roar to life.  Now he just has to convince both himself and Ivy that a relationship between them could work before the townsfolk decide to take matters into their own hands.

 

Hair of the Dog is a story with a lot of potential.  Grant is a sexy as hell wolf shifter and an honorable man who is also a widower still grieving the death of his wife.  He’s easy to love and it’s no wonder Ivy is drawn to him from the moment they meet.  Ivy is a woman with no knowledge of magic and she’s prone to blackouts and fits of abandon she doesn’t understand.  All these things are the starting point of a good story, but unfortunately Ivy and Grant go from zero to sixty halfway through the story and character development is cast aside for sex and a love story that sprung up a bit too unbelievably.  Had Grant’s grief – so potent in the first part of the book – not been turned off like a light switch and had Ivy’s awareness of her magical nature been dealt with better I would have liked the story so much more.

 

Kelli Scott’s world of Mystic Springs is imaginative and there are a lot of elements to the story that are incredibly interesting and could have made the book a stellar read if they were fleshed out.  The townspeople are all a bit one-note and it’s not a joy to say that two of the three major supporting characters are unpleasant (to put it kindly).  It makes me wonder why anyone would want to stay in the town.  While Hair of the Dog missed the mark for me, I did really like a lot of the elements to the story and I definitely want to read some of Ms. Scott’s other work.

Ginger Peet and Derek Tyler are heading towards different stages in their relationship.  They are happy living together and Ginger has some special news for her Lieutenant but he refuses to listen.  Derek closes Ginger out instead of sharing the truth with her.  A bad guy returns to Chicago and Derek thinks putting distance between himself and Ginger is the right move.

 

Ginger’s insecurities return the longer Derek is absent from her life.  She starts to think the worst.  If Derek and Ginger don’t share the secrets they are keeping, this relationship could have a disastrous end.

 

This novella is a follow up to the first Line of Duty novel from Author Tessa Baily, Protecting What’s His.   Protecting What’s Theirs is a fantastic follow up to Ginger and Derek’s love story.  I absolutely love this couple.  While the sex is absolutely sinful in the most sensational ways it’s Ginger’s vulnerability & quirkiness combined with Derek’s dirty talking Alpha “she is mine” attitude that brings this reader back for more.
