Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal

Hope Thompson has never recovered from being left by the love of her life, Nick Fortune. The man who fathered her twin children. When her son becomes ill she is left no choice but to contact Nick for help. Something which ties her up in knots.

 

Nick Fortune has succeeded in life, becoming a famous race car driver. When Hope originally contacts him, he’s sure this is some kind of con. But after checking he realizes he does have two children that he’s never known. He’s beyond furious at Hope for never telling him about the twins and is determined to get to know them. However, as he does he finds that his feelings for Hope are still there and decides he wants to be a family. Can he convince Hope to give him another chance?

 

Boardwalk Summer is the first book I have read by Kimberly Fisk and I thoroughly enjoyed it. From the first page I wanted Hope to have the happy ending that had eluded her. And Nick still adored her and wanted to know his children. I loved watching Nick learn how to interact with teenage children, which is never easy! I do have one pet peeve, while Nick has gone on with his life, had other relationships etc…Hope has been frozen almost the same as when Nick left her. While I have no problem with Nick and Hope being each other’s soul mate, it drives me crazy when the heroine of any story has no relationships while the hero dates all around. Kimberly Fisk has written a sweet romance with a happy ending that will keep me on the look out for new books she writes.  I love a romance that leaves me with a smile on my face!

Series: Psy-Changeling Trinity #1
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal


 

Silver Mercant has a full card with her dual jobs of being the director of the Emergency Response Network known as EmNet and as the senior aid to Kaleb Krychek.  She really doesn’t have time the for bear who keeps asking her for an ice cream date.  Yet, when an assassination attempt is made on Silver, it is that same bear who not only saves her life, but finds the way the attempt was made.  When it’s time for Silver to “disappear” from the public eye for a while, it’s just her luck that the place she is sent is to the very home of her persistent bear suitor.

 

Valentin Nikolaev is the Alpha of the StoneWater bear clan in Russia and while he has the same overall attitude as most bears, when it comes to protection for those under his care or those he loves (sometimes one and the same), there is no doubt about why Valentin is the Alpha.  Valentin has been attracted to Silver since he first saw her, and he is determined to show her that they could be an item if she would only give it a chance.  All Silver’s constant refusals do is fuel his determination.  When Silver is moved into the StoneWater clan home, Valentin knows he will never have a better chance to prove to Silver his love and how they belong together.

 

Silver starts out as just mystified by how the bears live and go through their day-to-day activities, but as she is exposed to life in the clan and sees Valentin in action, it becomes harder and harder to stick with her silent leanings.  Valentin is even amazed at how good he and Silver are once she gives their attraction a chance to become love.  What Valentin never expected is a fight that Silver has kept secret and how her feelings have become a danger to her.  So as Silver and Valentin hunt the person or people behind her attack, all while exploring the love that has sprung up between them, they both are working on figuring out a way to solve the worst danger of all to Sliver and their love.  When Valentin convinces Silver to go for an all or nothing cure, it’s with the knowledge that he may lose his mate forever to silence or death.  The question is, can Silver and Valentin have their forever after or will their future die before they ever get the chance to reach for it?

 

Take one pushy and laid-back bear Alpha and one efficient and silent woman, throw in equal parts of danger, adorable bears and a passion that quickly turns to love, and you have just a bit of an idea of what Silver Silence is all about.  I quickly grew to love Valentin and saw just as fast on why, if anyone, could drag Silver out of her silence, it was him.  I will also say that I never thought anything would get Silver to leave the silence that she has lived with her entire life.  Watching as Valentin showed Silver just how good life could be when you included feelings, and especially love, was an adventure at every turn.  I also loved watching as Sliver fought and then gave up her attempt to not give in to her feelings. She was such a goner as soon as she moved into the clan home.

 

All of the things I have said above only covers the top layers of why I fell in love with Silver and Valentin’s story.  There are also times that made me want to cry and times when I laughed out loud.  This was a book that I turned around and re-read as soon as I finished it, and I discovered new elements that I had missed the first time.  If you ever wondered just how determined bears can be—Valentin not only won Silver’s love once, but he did it twice against all the odds against him.  How can you not love a man who can do that??  Silver Silence is definitely a Joyfully Recommend Read and has become one of my top favorites in the Psy-Changeling stories.  I can’t wait to see where this Trinity series is going to go next.

WHITE HOT by Ilona AndrewsWhite Hot by Ilona Andrews
Series: Hidden Legacy #2
Published by Avon Genres: Paranormal

In a world where magic is power, prestige and money all rolled into one, private investigator Nevada Baylor is an anomaly.  Her magic is rare and she has spent her life barely using her abilities as a truthseeker…until her last case thrust her into the world of magic and politics.  After the near destruction of Houston, life seems to have mostly gone back to normal.  Then Nevada’s latest case shoves her right back into danger.  The shadowy forces that nearly destroyed her city are back and more vicious than ever.  And Nevada isn’t the only one hunting them down.  Connor “Mad” Rogan, the billionaire Prime who gets her blood boiling like no one else, is working alongside her.  A few months apart has done nothing to calm the sparks that are flying between them.  With the stakes so high and numerous threats coming from unseen enemies, neither of them can afford to be distracted.  But sometimes attraction burns too hot to ignore…

 

White Hot is intense, energetic, and completely engrossing.  I’ve been impatiently waiting for this second Hidden Legacy novel and Ilona Andrews did not disappoint.

 

Nevada and Rogan are the heart of White Hot and you couldn’t ask for two more interesting, compelling characters (and that’s saying something since the entire cast of characters in this book is fascinating).  Nevada is a kickass heroine with a huge heart, a quick mind, and a spine of steel.  She’s already a well-developed character, but I loved watching her come further into her own when it comes to her magic.  Watching her explore her power was just plain neat, but the consequences of her doing so had me on the edge of my seat more than once over the course of the story.  How she deals with the curveballs thrown at her, and how Rogan helps her do so was fantastic.  And speaking of Rogan, he is one sinfully sexy Prime.  He’s as arrogant as ever, but his protective streak made me melt and I loved peeling back the layers to his character.  He and Nevada make an excellent match.  Their love story kicks into high gear in White Hot and I loved every bit of it.  The back-and-forth, the sexual tension, and the pure emotion that springs off the page was utterly fantastic and made me want to dive right back into this story as soon as I finished it.

 

White Hot is the second book in the Hidden Legacy trilogy, and you definitely want to read Burn for Me before diving into this story.  There’s not much I can say about the overarching series storyline because it would spoil things for readers.  Suffice it to say that if you thought things were intense in Burn for Me, then buckle up because you’re in for one hell of a ride.  The danger to Nevada, Rogan, and those they care about made it nearly impossible to put the book down.  In fact, pretty much everything about White Hot made the book difficult to put down.  It’s by turns thrilling, romantic, sexy, and unexpectedly funny.  My only complaint is that I now have to wait to delve into the final Hidden Legacy book, Wildfire.  I cannot wait to see what Ilona Andrews has in store for Nevada and Rogan!

THE GARGOYLES RUNNING BACK by Charlie RichardsThe Gargoyles Running Back by Charlie Richards
Series: A Paranormal's Love #17
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal

At a hundred and thirty the gargoyle Sumak is ready to leave kitchen chores behind and become a guard at the mansion his clutch calls home.  Granted the opportunity by Chieftain Maelgwn the young gargoyle is walking the perimeter of the estate when he spies a human jogging on a trail. Sumak is almost overcome with desire when the jogger’s scent hits him.  The gargoyle has found his mate, yet Sumak knows it’s absolutely the wrong time to explain their relationship.  The most he can do is help the human with his car trouble in a roundabout way.

 

Unable to introduce himself while in gargoyle form Sumak at least is able to memorize the human’s license plate.  He realizes the fates are indeed watching over him because Sumak’s mate is Andre Capston, whose estranged brother Mace is mated to another gargoyle at the mansion.

 

Before the gargoyle can figure out a way to meet his mate Andre has talked his two best friends and college roommates into spying on the estate and look for his strangely dressed late night helper.  What the three humans see is something they never expect.  Explanations are definitely in order – once they calm down.

 

This humorous storyline is a great addition to the A Paranormal’s Love series.  Readers will be tickled with The Gargoyle’s Running Back from start to finish.  Engaging characters easily draw the reader into their bumpy and entertaining romance.  Embrace Sumak and Andre as they work their way towards a happy mating.  Love doesn’t tend to be easy, but definitely worth the effort in the long run as Sumak and his mate discover in The Gargoyle’s Running Back.
