High achiever, Imogen Maxwell only wants to be involved with movies and pursue her passion.  When an opportunity presents itself, she jumps at the chance to prove her worth even if it’s not under the best of circumstances.  However, Imogen never imagined how “out of time” those circumstances could be.  Will she find more than she bargained for in her quest for happiness, or will she give it all up to be back in her own comfort zone?

 

Phillip de Piaget has come to claim his promised bride.  Finding the young lady dangling from the walls of her keep instead of flinging refuse at him gave him pause.  It doesn’t take long for the handsome gentleman to deduce that the lass he has just caught isn’t his to begin with, but he’d like her to be.  Will Phillip be able to convince her that love is worth more than anything she could have left behind, or will someone else seal Phillip’s fate for him?

 

Stars in Your Eyes began with great promise.  The plots seemed interesting, as most Lynn Kurland’s books are, and the characters were well fleshed-out.  However, they just weren’t clicking for me in Stars in Your Eyes.  I felt that Phillip and Imogen spent more time apart than together.  I didn’t see where their feelings could’ve developed other than being told that they were there in Stars in Your Eyes.

Stars in Your Eyes had great characters that had me wanting to get to know them, even the so-called villain of the piece.  I enjoyed the setting of this tale and wished to explore it more in Stars in Your Eyes.  However, I just couldn’t believe in the love that Phillip and Imogen professed in the end.  It felt more like she was available for him, and he provided her with an escape from her atrocious family…a settling, if you will.

Published by DSP Publications Genres: MM, Paranormal

Vampires are legally required to be part of a national registry once the world became aware of their existence.  Trouble in the form of a radical group refuses to accept vampires as citizens however, and regularly stake and burn vampires to make their point and the headlines.  Pretty much anyone not white and human is fair game as far as their concerned.

 

Ghosts have been a part of Genesis ‘Gene’ Sage’s life as far back as he can remember and his dreams at night are filled with graveyards and gravestones.  Petite and somewhat delicate featured, Gene’s school years were a nightmare at the best of times.  He dropped out the day bullies almost killed him and no one came to his rescue.  Blessed with a hauntingly beautiful voice Gene has managed to scrape by working at a gay bar while he and two friends try to get a record deal for their indie band Evolution.

 

Late and driving wild as usual, Gene is distracted by a possible ghost and nearly runs down someone crossing the road.  Unbelievably the victim is none other than rock god Kerstrande Petterson, a member of the defunct band Triple Flight.   Obvious suspicions and poor communication are the beginning of Gene and Kerstande’s convoluted relationship.  The one thing they share is their love of music and an innate spark of attraction neither is able to deny, at least for long.  The more time they spend together the more secrets are exposed leading each to the edge of death or worse.

 

The most unlikely of romances, Evolution takes readers on a complicated journey with love as the goal.  A unique paranormal tale Evolution also has a bite of horror as Gene enters Kerstrande’s wicked world.  Miscommunication leads the pair to several emotional breakups and makes ups which do get frustrating at times.  Gene is an absolutely fascinating main character who falls for a moody, broody recluse whose motivations have merit.  There are a few great twists and surprises as well, which adds more kick to their story.  Dark and dangerous Evolution proves how tenacious Gene can be where Kerstrande and love are concerned.

ROMANCING THE GUARDIAN by Ali AtwoodRomancing the Guardian by Ali Atwood
Series: Shifters and Lovers #2
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: MM, Paranormal

Actor Rick Cantrell had a fairy tale beginning to his successful career.  He was working as a stuntman and the director asked Rick to fill in when the lead was a no show – all because he could ride the horse.  From then on, good looks, charisma, and a willingness to learn changed his life.

 

Along with all the accolades and enthusiastic fan base there are always a few crazies in the bunch.  One in particular seems to be escalating so the studio has contacted Securecon and requested special security for the time being.

 

From the moment Rick is introduced to lion shifter Jordan Riker the actor is imaging the bodyguard naked in his bed.  The more Rick flirts the more Jordan shuts down.  There’s no way Jordan will screw up this job with Securecon after losing his place in his pride.  His Alpha, his father – he couldn’t take the cruelty and games any longer.  No matter what, Jordan will protect his client, his mate.

 

Romancing the Guardian playfully matches a feisty actor with an emotionally crushed shifter.  Book two in the Shifters and Lovers series cleverly balances the plotline between a rabid fan on the prowl and the main characters tentative romance.  When Rick finally wears Jordan down…break out the ice or a large fan.  Lust turns to love and a nut job is unmasked in Romancing the Guardian.  Hot and satisfying.

Four scrolls with the power to end shifters around the world are entrusted to immortals for protection.  When two of the scrolls are dropped into the depths of the seas the immortal Crusea charges ocean shifters with their care.

 

Vietnam vet Digger Sullivan and the crew of the Sea Hag hunt for sunken treasure throughout the world.  Recently Digger accepted a commission from a wealthy heiress to extract treasure from a ship sunk near Florida.  So far they’ve successfully unearthed several pieces, including a strange cylinder which they are unable to open.

 

Various shifter clans take turns guarding the scrolls.  Reef and his small clan of shark shifters are currently on duty to keep the powerful weapons out of human hands.  Knowing that the human captain has found one of the scrolls Reef does some fast thinking, shifts and pretends he’s adrift after his small boat sank.

 

After rescuing the man with the questionable story Digger isn’t sure what to make of the sexy stranger.  It’s been more years than he cares to remember since Digger’s felt anything for another, yet Reef immediately sends his libido soaring.  Reef is well aware he needs to grab the scroll and disappear, the sooner the better.  He can’t leave however without tasting the captain at least once or twice or more.

 

A desperate adventure unfolds in Predator and Prey the ninth book in The Shifters series.  The unlikely love between Digger and Reef works because the two are willing to fight for their feelings.  Gruff, taciturn Digger meets his match in an intelligent, yet naïve shark shifter. Predator and Prey allows a sensual romance to blossom, but in the meantime readers can feel the dark storm brewing.

In an effort to calm the discord between the human race in the cities and the werewolf packs of the forest Josiah Kimbrel agrees to spend time with the River Wolf pack.  The human is surprised to witness how civilized and family oriented they actually are, not the rabid beasts most humans believe them to be.

 

Josiah chooses to ignore the attraction he feels towards Alpha River until something bizarre happens which strips away all pretense of humanity.  All of a sudden Josiah goes into heat and the only one who can control his beast is River.  The only one who can sooth his soul.

 

Everything is in turmoil now because their ambassador is no longer the human they sent to the pack.  The Congress won’t understand what’s happened nor will they attempt to ever accept Josiah again.  The conflict has suddenly become worse than ever and Josiah is caught in the middle.

 

Fascinating twists take readers on a wild ride in First Omega.  Emotional highs and lows run rampant in this sensual page turner. First Omega skillfully blends engaging characters dealing with fundament issues of bigotry.  Add to that, scorching hot scenes between Josiah and River light up their romance.  Surprising twists also adds depth to the storyline.  Totally hot and entertaining.
