Virginia Troy is the owner of an art gallery in Seattle.  When one of her artists turns up dead, Virginia has a good reason to believe that it was murder.  Virginia is one of the few survivors of a cult that was destroyed when she was a child, and the missing author was one of her mother’s few friends with in the cult.  Virginia knows she can’t take her suspicions to just anyone; but Anson Salinas, the man who helped save the children from the fire, happens to be a partner in a private investigation firm.  He is the one person Virginia knows she can hire that will take her seriously.

 

Cabot Sutter is one of the surviving children from the cult who was adopted by Anson.  He is also one of the main investigators in the firm.  When Virginia shows up with her concerns and wants to hire the firm to find out exactly what happened when the artist was killed, Cabot is assigned to the case.  Cabot and Virginia certainly have some past history in having lived in and survived the cult.  As a result, both are wary in letting anyone get too close, yet they quickly become a firm partnership as they start to follow the clues and every lead to find out not only  what happened the night an artist fell off a cliff, but also just what exactly happened the night the fire destroyed the cult compound.

 

Quinton Zane was the cult leader who decided to try and kill all of his followers when the law came down on him.  During the events of the evening, it was unsure if the cult leader had been killed somehow or if he got away when it was all over.   As Cabot and Virginia begin getting a few answers, they begin to suspect that Quinton got away and still lives.  The danger multiplies as more answers are located and, even as each turn seems to bring even more danger, Virginia and Cabot also discover that some of the sparks are actually coming from them.  It seems that romance doesn’t care what is going on around you when love is meant to be.  The final answers prove Virginia was right, and yet it is a surprise on who was actually behind everything.  The question is: Is all the horror of the cult and its ending finally, over or is there more out there to be discovered and ended?

 

Scars on the inside can be much more harming than those on the outside as both Cabot and Virginia learned growing up as survivors of a cult that went out in a deadly blaze in Promise Not To Tell.  I really loved how Virginia and Cabot forged forward even when the outcome brought out things they really didn’t want to think about again.  I also enjoyed trying to figure out the clues as I read along during their adventures.  I was surprised at how well Cabot and Virginia matched up once their attraction was undeniable.  At first, I was sure they were just too far apart, even with the shared background.  If you love a great suspense, then you can’t miss with giving Promise Not To Tell a read.  While not a series, one of Cabot’s other adopted brothers is the hero of When All The Girls Have Gone.

THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine GuilloryThe Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary


 

When Alexa Moore finds herself trapped in an elevator with Drew Nichols, she never thought she’d end up being his date to the wedding of his ex and one of his best friends. Drew can’t believe that Alexa has saved his bacon by agreeing to be his date to this wedding. It’s not that he still has feelings for the bride, it’s that he knows if he goes without a date, everyone will assume he does and he doesn’t want to do anything to ruin the day. But spending the day with Alexa just intrigues him and the night that follows just makes him want more. What was supposed to be an easy date turns into a long-distance relationship trying to see each other on the weekends. But the more they see of each other, the more they want to be together. Can a long-distance relationship turn into forever?

 

I adored The Wedding Date!!! From the moment Alexa and Drew started flirting in the elevator I was hooked. And when they started their long-distance relationship, I was drawn into their story even more. I’ve never had the pleasure of reading Jasmine Guillroy and I’ve been missing out! I love finding a new author so I was given a double treat, a story I loved and a new author to read!

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.
