Author Shannon McKenna continues her exciting Obsidian Files series with In My Skin.

Luke is hunting for a way to return the memories he locked away to protect those he loves.  Now all he wants is to remember the people he risked so much for.  There is just one complication…Daniela LaSalle.

Dani is a nurse whose life is turned upside down when an old friend arrives at her home on death’s door wanting help. Before she can get the whole story, her friend dies and leaves her in a world of trouble.

Luke is determined to discover what Dani’s friend said to her but is sidetracked by a fierce need to protect the beauty.  As killers come out of the woodwork with a mission to capture Dani they must go on the run. The only problem is Dani doesn’t know who to trust.  Can they survive what’s coming for them?

In My Skin is a sizzling thrill ride from page one.  Luke and Dani share a passionate chemistry that ignites immediately.  Luke Ryan has been put through hell. I had been wondering what would happen to him after all the atrocities he faced in the previous books.  He deserves some happiness.

Luke and Dani go on one heck of an adventure.  I loved their banter back and forth especially Dani’s smart-mouth retorts. The amazing action sequences leave you on edge while the powerful emotions will have your heart swelling.  Ms. McKenna definitely knows how to choreograph impressive action sequences in her books. They always leave me wanting more.

I thoroughly enjoyed In My Skin! Luke and Dani are fantastic, and the ending was out of this world! I loved it!

If you’re looking for lots of suspense and drama mixed with steamy sex, then In My Skin is for you!

Zade has a plan…a foolproof one at least that’s what he thinks.  Zade plans to use Simone to find his missing brother Luke.  The only problem with that plan is the instant attraction that leads to a powerful connection.  Now that he’s gotten to know her he must decide what to do next.

Simone hasn’t been happy for a long time.  Unlucky in love and unhappy in her job she has decided to change things up.  The only problem is the fact that her boss aka her stepfather refuses to let her go.  Little does she know her stepfather’s agenda is more diabolical than she could ever imagine.

Zade and Simone have phenomenal attraction that sparks the moment they cross paths.  It doesn’t take long for Zade to realize he’s in trouble. Simone is nothing like he imagined and now he struggles with his deep feelings for her and an overwhelming need to find his brother.

Author Shannon McKenna’s My Next Breath is a sexy adventure heavy with emotion.  Zade’s desperation to find his brother mixed with the need to protect Simone ramp up the urgent suspense in My Next Breath. Shannon McKenna gives readers excellent stories with her Obsidian Files series.

Simone and Zade have both been dealt a crap hand in life.  Now is their chance to find some happiness if they survive the onslaught of people that want to capture and kill them.  These two were great with just enough sizzle paired with intense action scenes. I cannot wait to find out what happens next. I especially hope that Zade brother’s Luke finds love and his way back to his family.

In the aftermath of the Alasharian invasion, the civilizations of Earth stand in ruins. Those who survived are made slaves to the alien invaders either for domestic duties or to be used as sexual conquests.


Morgan was caught alongside his cousin Chris who soul bonded with two Alasharian warriors.  It is unheard of for two to become three and with an alien at that. Therefore Chris and his warriors Nary and Lasar have chosen to keep their bond a secret from their leader, the Supreme Commander.  In the meantime, the soul mates have promised to keep Morgan safe as long as they are able.


Time is up for Morgan to be given to the warrior Rama.  Terrified of what will happen to him the human is extremely puzzled by his reaction to meeting the Alasharian advisor Hallosh.  Somehow Morgan is also able to soul bond with two Alasharians.  Whatever is happening will change the future of the alien and human interactions.  The soul mates know that the Supreme Commander has been taken over by evil, but somehow forces are maneuvering to give both species a chance to triumph if and only if they can survive what happens next…


Hiding From Two is an intricately woven tale packed with high tension and a tentative romance.  Intrigue and danger is around every corner it seems as Morgan and his cousin Chris deal with Alasharian warriors and the love they offer.  This original storyline keeps readers on the edge of their seats from the first page to the last.  Proving that love comes in many forms Hiding From Two delivers on all counts.  This series gets better and better with each new book.


Five Minutes Longer

Series: Enhanced #1

Years ago a strange phenomenon began to appear.  Children randomly awoke to an odd mark upon their face.  There was no rhythm or reason for it.  The mark meant that they were Enhanced.  They would develop some kind of power, weak or strong they were no longer human.  And it was only occurring in the U.S.- nowhere else.


Growing up in boring middle America Finn Mayer’s best friend was Adam.  They did everything together.  At least until the day Finn watched as his best buddy was taken away by cops.  Adam’s parents stood by and watched but did nothing.  That was the last time Finn saw his best friend.


For years and years Finn held onto the dream of joining the FBI.  He desperately wanted to leave home.  When the letter arrived from the Bureau letting him know he wasn’t a candidate for training it broke his heart.


Out of the blue Finn receives a call.  He’s told to travel to Florida to begin training as an FBI agent.  Finn will be the first human to join an Enhanced team.  Butting heads with his Enhanced team mates, the tension to be accepted and outside forces who wish them to fail are all getting to Finn.  He’s desperate to succeed.  But at what cost?


Five Minutes Longer lays the groundwork for a terrific series.  Conflicts within the team multiply while outsiders fan the flames for disaster.  This fascinating character driven plot explores a variety of emotional issues, bonds, and relationship woes.  Painfully lacking in confidence Finn is the catalyst for a solid story in Five Minutes Longer.  Book two can’t come soon enough.

Starship captain Varo Kutchif, also known as Prince Varo, third son of the ruler of the planet Yesri is caught between a rock and hard place.  The king, his father, has ordered Varo to somehow land on Helkan and murder the royal brothers ruling that planet. Then, amid the chaos, he’s supposed to steal Black Phospolrock, a highly valuable mineral.  It’s utter madness.  If Varo refuses the King will see to it that the crew of his ship and their relatives will be put to death.  The incentive set forth by a madman.


Every planet in their system is well aware that the Helkan world prefers to keep to themselves.  Their people rarely venture off planet and visitors are not welcome.  Anyone who lands there without authorization becomes their prisoner and is never heard from again.  This is what Prince Varo faces.


Talks with the intriguing Prince Adlar, leader of the D’noir, the King’s assassin squad, about a proposition to obtain the mineral break down/ Varo knows he’s been left with one choice.  He can only hope that when his shuttle crashes his death is quick and relatively painless.


The very last thing Varo expects is to survive the crash landing.  Prince Adlar is sent to the site and begins hunting his prey.  Varo has no idea of what he’s set in motion.  Becoming Prince Adlar’s prisoner is just the beginning.


A treat for the senses, In Enemy Hands is a deliciously dark thrill ride.  Clashing personalities showcase fascinating, complex characters In Enemy Hands.  Varo and Adlar couldn’t be more unalike; watching them come to terms with the changes they’ve brought to each other is pure fun.  It may be difficult to understand how the starship captain could become so comfortably submissive to the Helkan prince, but clues to an abusive past are the answer.  Trust becomes the issue for two princes in this unique character driven story.  In Enemy Hands absolutely captures the reader and doesn’t let go.  This intense romance will leave you clamoring for more.
