Hoodoo Blue is so hilarious and delightful.  One minute I was bent over with uncontainable laughter and then in the very next, I was breathless with heated desire.  I fully enjoyed the storyline so much so that I completed this sizzling novella in one sitting.  The chemistry between Fredi and Gus is natural and explosively hot even without the magical potion contribution.  So, if you are in the mood for a fun-loving, humorous, enchanting, passionate, and entertaining tale; then, look no further than Katalina Leon’s Hoodoo Blue. You will not be dissatisfied with this awesome read!

Living on her own in Houston, Swan works as a waitress at a strip club to support herself and pay for a second master’s degree.  Swan is unaware that she’s being guarded, watched over by Miguel ‘Smoke’ Santos, Master at Arms for the Austin chapter of the Iron Horse MC  Her protection began weeks ago because her mother stole something belonging to the Iron Horse MC, something the Russian mob wants and something men in Vegas are interested in.

 

Innocent of any involvement in her mother’s actions, Swan is embroiled in the mess because of her mother and because Sarah is engaged to Beach, President of the Iron Horse MC based in Austin.  Everyone is aware that Sarah is trying to find their parent, more importantly very few know that Sarah has an identical twin sister.

 

Trying to keep Swan safe and ignorant of what’s happening becomes impossible so Smoke is told to bring her to Austin.  Already half in love with the sweet, virginal twin Smoke’s feelings are returned as Swan falls under his spell.  Everyone is after Swan to use her for leverage of one kind or another, except Smoke.  All he cares about is keeping his woman safe and well loved.  As the dangers mount their love becomes stronger.  Unfortunately powerful loving won’t protect them forever.

 

Exquisite Trouble brings a raw, gritty, and brutal world to light where innocence and purity walk hand in hand with death.  Swan is an enigma, virginal, and genuine, yet because of her upbringing she can name, clean, and shoot any weapon you hand her.  Smoke and the world of Iron Horse MC he inhabits is a place few could survive.  The language is rough and the people even more so.  The Iron Horse MC novels are original and entirely fascinating.  A character driven suspense filled tale Exquisite Trouble blends a pulse pounding drama with a believable romance.  It’s not tender, it’s erotic and it’s purely addicting.

It feels as though the entire world of criminals and cutthroats have Swan and Sarah Anderson on their radar.  Swan and her lover Miguel ‘Smoke’ Santos are heading to Denver after getting a tip from the local Iron Horse MC that the twins’ mother and Sarah have been sighted in Colorado.  It’s also a fast learning curve for Swan to get acclimated to the life of someone in a relationship with a biker, especially one as high up in the Iron Horse hierarchy.  Loving Smoke has been the easy part on her heart and the hard part for her independent nature.

 

Finding out that the twins’ mother stole a huge amount of money and a trailer full of weapons explains why everyone wants her so badly.  There’s no love lost between the girls and their mother, but she is their mother so finding her before anyone else is imperative.  Even worse Sarah is still out there alone trying to find her.

 

False rumors endanger Swan after arriving in town and meeting the Denver chapter which forces them to accept the fact that there are traitors in their midst. Swan and Smoke must find her mother and Sarah as well as expose the guilty within the club.  Then they can explore their intense feelings for each other and take things to the next level.  Easy, right?

 

Suspenseful for the start, Exquisite Danger takes readers on a heart pounding romantic adventure.  Intense characterizations continue to develop in the second Iron Horse MC Novel series.  Swan and Smoke have a fierce relationship, passionate and erotic, while at the same time rough and raw.  The dialogue is gritty and realistic for the biker lifestyle.  Exquisite Danger is an exciting love story, but definitely not your average romance.
