JUDGEMENT ROAD by Christine FeehanJudgement Road by Christine Feehan
Series: Torpedo Inc. #1
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Suspense


An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

A brutal education in a Russian training facility for assassins has taught this group of men one thing:

It's a long road to redemption.

JUDGMENT ROAD

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He's a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can't afford--until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin...

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she's desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper's imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya's touch is everything Reaper doesn't want--and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club--his heart and his soul.

Reaper is the enforcer for Torpedo Inc. MC in Sea Haven. Anya is a homeless bartender hiding secrets that could cost her everything.

Christine Feehan’s Judgement Road is much more than your normal MC drama.  Reaper and Anya’s love story is a tortured one.  Judgement Road will take you on an incendiary journey into the dangerous world of outlaw Motorcycle Clubs, but it is the romance that keep you on the edge-of-your-seat.

Reaper suffered incredible horrors growing up.  Some parts of his history are devastating.  Anya is the perfect woman to soothe his wounded soul if he will let her. I felt deeply for these two.  I liked the fact that Ms. Feehan didn’t take the easy road with Reaper and Anya.  We must accept that certain problems cannot be instantly fixed.  Ms. Feehan’s characters needed to fight for their happily ever after and they most certainly did.  Reaper and Anya’s love story is smoldering!

Judgement Road’s excellent emotional arc pairs well with the intense suspense plot.  If you are a fan of Feehan’s other novels set in Sea Haven you will enjoy the addition of Torpedo Inc’s fiery brothers. The outlaws of Torpedo Inc. are fierce characters with fascinating personalities.  I look forward to discovering more about them in the next Torpedo Inc. novel.

WIRED by Julie GarwoodWired by Julie Garwood
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary

Boston college senior Allison Trent carries a huge secret close to her heart.  Anyone who knows Allison is well aware of her intelligence and looking at her it’s no surprise that she’s a successful model.  No one however is aware that within that smart brain lies a brilliant hacker.  Allison can’t let anyone know that her computer skills far exceed everyone because she hasn’t been completely legal on the web.

 

Life hasn’t been easy for Allison.  At the tender age of four she and her ten-year-old sister Charlotte were orphaned and went from a loving home to their cold, austere aunt and uncle.  Cousin Will was a troublesome brat whose parents fawned on him and ignored the girls.

 

Sharing a house with two other college students becomes the best time of Allison’s life.  Thriving at school, modeling on the side for funds, and becoming best friends with Jordan Clayborne, another talented computer whiz, gives Allison everything she craves.

 

When Jordan invites her to view an offsite FBI facility Allison agrees to go.  She quickly wishes she’d never set foot in the place once she meets FBI Agent Liam Scott.  Allison recognizes him from a seminar Jordan gave.  Somehow Liam knows she’s holding something back.  If Allison isn’t careful the truth will come out.  Desperate for help Liam won’t take a negative answer.  Talk about a rock and a hard place.

 

Julie Garwood pens another masterful suspense story.  The best-selling author knows exactly how to create characters who come alive on the page.  Wired is both heartwarming and tense at the same time.  Allison will wrap herself around the reader’s heart while the plotline twists and turns.   As Wired gains momentum the dangers mount for Allison.  At the same time her relationship with Liam becomes more intense.  Neither wishes for love to enter the equation, but fighting their feelings for each other becomes as dangerous as the evil closing in.  Wired is an absolutely wonderful story.  Readers clear your schedule.

NAUTI ANGEL by Lora LeighNauti Angel by Lora Leigh
Series: Nauti Girls
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary, Erotic, Suspense

When Bliss MacKay is almost kidnapped mercenary Angel Calloway makes it her mission to protect her.  Chaya MacKay, Bliss’ mother, is none too happy with Angel.  Chaya knows Angel is hiding something from her and cannot trust her with her daughter until she knows the truth.

Reece “Duke” Duquaine is a former Army Investigator charged with keeping an eye on Angel and discovering her secrets.  The longer he’s around Angel the harder it is to deny the attraction between them.  But will Duke be able to protect Angel from herself?

The final book in the Nauti Girls series blows Author Lora Leigh’s Nauti World to pieces and then put’s it back together in true Lora Leigh fashion.

Within minutes of starting Nauti Angel I knew I was going to need some Kleenex.  I found myself mesmerized by Angel and her relationships with Chaya, Bliss and Duke.  I could not get enough and finished in one sitting.  Nauti Angel combines the perfect amount of emotion, action and hot sex.   I shed many tears and I’m sad to hear this is the final Nauti Girls book.  Angel and Duke have a rough start.  After all, women don’t usually appreciate a man trying to dig up her secrets.  However, he redeems himself when he stands by her after her secrets come to life.

The connection between Angel and Duke is passionate and exciting.  They are forced into some tough situations but always seem to make it through mostly unscathed.  Angel is a complex character and I enjoyed her journey throughout the book.  The action is intense and thrilling.  I loved the fact that we were able to spend a lot of time with all the Nauti Boys and Girls.  For me it was like a reunion.  I enjoyed finding out what they are up to now.  And the secret that Angel’s carrying around…well that’s a whopper!

Prepare yourself for another sexy hot ride from Author Lora Leigh in Nauti Angel.  The suspense, drama and sexual tension make Nauti Angel a keeper.  Author Lora Leigh outdid herself! Nauti Angel is the perfect way to end the fantastic Nauti Girls series.

Published by Berkley Publishing Group on LOST Platoon
Genres: Contemporary, Military, Suspense

A SEAL team goes missing in Russia, but all is not as it seems.  The surviving members of the team set off in different directions with new identities, looking for answers.

Annie Henderson is a passionate marine ecologist.  She followed her new boyfriend to Scotland to protest oil drilling.  The longer she’s around him and his friends the more suspicious she becomes.  It doesn’t take long for her inquisitive nature to get her into trouble.  Her only chance to survive this fool’s errand is the sexy but grouchy dive boat Captain, Dan Warren.

The last thing Dan needs is to get wrapped up in Anne’s problems.  He soon finds out he has no choice.  Anne’s so over her head if he doesn’t help it’s unlikely she will survive her trip to Scotland.  Can they unravel the mystery in time to save themselves or will their attraction end up getting them killed?

I absolutely Loved Going Dark!  Monica McCarty tackles military drama with her pen and gives readers one hell of a story!  Dan and Annie heat the pages with their sexy banter and intense chemistry.  The situations they land in range from funny to downright scary.  Ms. McCarty moves at a swift, exhilarating pace.  The core mystery behind the Russian mission is intriguing and I look forward to learning more about it in book two.

Ms. McCarty will have readers begging for more of her LOST Platoon series!

ARCHANGEL’S VIPER by Nalini SinghArchangel's Viper by Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #10
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal


 

Holly Chang was a happy college student on the day she and several of her friends went out on a girl’s day.  That all changed when they were kidnapped, tortured and, for Holly’s friends, killed by a crazy archangel.  Holly was the sole survivor when she was found by Elena, broken and changed, but alive.  It’s now been several years since that happened and Holly has worked hard to overcome what she was changed into and to deal with the creature she has become.  Unlike most humans when they are transformed, Holly isn’t quite a vampire nor is she human.  Now it seems that someone wants Holly, and they are willing to risk the Tower’s wrath to get her.

 

Venom is one of Raphael’s seven, his private guard.  Known for his slick dressing, eyes like a viper, and poison that he can release with his fangs, Venom usually faces the world behind dark glasses.  Venom is one of the seven who has been working with Holly, because it appears they are the only two on earth with faster than fast reflexes and deadly poison that they can release with their fangs.  When the bounty on Holly comes to light, Venom volunteers to become Holly’s “babysitter” and personal bodyguard until they find who is behind the threat and terminate it.

 

Holly would rather spend time with anyone OTHER than Venom, but she is so far down the Tower’s chain that she is stuck with him after Dimitri assigns them together .  As Venom and Holly work on following the clues on why someone would want to kidnap Holly, they also continue working on Holly discovering just what her gifts are and how she can control them.  They also slowly begin to discover that their game of baiting each other is revealing an attraction that quickly becomes a passion.  The deadly game of keeping Holly safe is interrupted by an even deadlier search to reveal the answers to just what Holly has inside her and how it is connected to the insane archangel who transformed her.  This search will take Venom and Holly from New York and into the stronghold of an archangel who will destroy them if they are discovered before the truths come out and a final battle is waged—one that might end Holly’s life once and for all.  It will take all of Venom and Holly’s strength and trust in each other to overcome the battle before them and come out alive and able to explore the overwhelming passion they have found together.

 

Match up one of the personal bodyguards to the New York Archangel with a petite Chinese-American woman who has lived through horrors, throw in a treat and a deadly  mystery, and you have the journey to love that Venom and Holly will travel in Archangel’s Viper. I would have never put Venom and Holly together and, yet, as I watch them circle around and try to one-up each other, I found that they were the perfect match is so many ways.  I absolutely loved watching as Venom and Holly at first fought against their attraction and then as they started to explore their passion and finally as they battled to overcome the deadly horror that was threatening Holly’s life.  I also enjoyed learning more about Venom’s background and the why and how he was made as he was.  But what I learned most about Venom was that behind his slick suits and those dark glasses, he has a big heart and a soul that needed someone to love and to help him forgive long past hurts that were still festering deep within him.  Holly’s zest to live out every minute of life and to make every day count was exactly the person to help Venom finally free himself to accept the love that has connected them.

 

I was captivated from the first page and wasn’t let go until I turned the final page.  I could not wait to discover what would happen next as Venom and Holly worked to find all the answers that would allow them to have a future to love and learn more about each other.  I also loved seeing some of the everyday life of Raphael’s seven when he wasn’t around.  The timing of Venom and Holly’s story was just as revealing as the Tower’s curtain was slightly moved aside to reveal some of its inner workings.  There was much more I could have talked about, but I will just say that you have to read the book. I would suggest that you wait to open the cover until you have a good long stretch uninterrupted time to read.  To say that I Joyfully Recommend Archangel’s Viper as a must-read and a true keeper, doesn’t quite cover it, but I do so whole-heartedly.
