Heath Jones is on the hunt for The Copper Killer; a serial killer who tortures and murders red heads.  Heath and his brothers are also running from a dark past.  Once he finds the Copper Killer he plans to take on the evils from his past.  The last thing he needs is a woman interfering.

Anya Best is a criminal psychologist out for revenge.  The Copper Killer kidnapped her sister and Anya feels like it’s her fault.  She is the one that involved her sister after the Copper Killer began leaving her notes and photos of his victims.  Anya decides it’s time to be the bait and draw out the killer and she’s going to use Heath to do it.

Author Rebecca Zanetti continues the Blood Brothers series in style with Lethal LiesLethal Lies tells Heath’s story.  Zanetti has created a dark and twisty tale with the Copper Killer case.  I had no clue who the killer was!  All my guesses were wrong and I love when that happens.

Heath and Anya have an immediate connection; one that goes beyond passion.  I enjoyed these characters both are intense and determined to get justice for the people they love.  Lethal Lies is packed with emotion it really tugs at the heartstrings.  Heath and Anya share a very fierce action filled story.  Lethal Lies is a fun electrifying ride.

I’ve really fallen in love with Ryker, Heath, Denver and their thrilling story.  These men and the women they fall for are characters you can root for and stand behind.  I cannot wait to find out what happens in Denver’s book Twisted Truths!

Lethal Lies is the second book in Author Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series.  It’s not necessary to read Deadly Silence first but it definitely makes the story more entertaining.

Viper Bellisia is finally able to get out of the evil Dr. Whitney’s clutches and she will do anything to stay out.  Acting on recently acquired information she heads to Louisiana to warn the Ghost Walkers trouble is coming.  She never imagined what she would find when she arrived.

Ghost Walker Captain Ezekiel Fortunes raised his brothers and will do anything to protect them and the rest of his Ghost Walker family.  He’s drawn to the newest stranger in town.  She calls to him like no other.  Danger is close on her heels and now that he’s decided to keep the little spitfire he will go to extremes to protect what is his.

Bellisia and Ezekiel are in for the fight of their lives.  Will love be the glue that holds them together or will it get them killed?

Power Game is a force to be reckoned with.  It’s been a while since I dipped my toes into the Ghost Walker pool but damn I’m glad to be back.

Ezekiel and Bellisia are two very strong characters.  I like that they are equals.  Bellisia is no damsel in distress.  She’s perfectly capable of protecting what’s hers including Ezekiel.  These two are so spunky and their banter witty.  The characters are all wildly different and highly entertaining.  The triplets are freaking adorable and their interactions with Bellisia and Ezekiel were funny and at times tender.

The Ghost Walker world keeps growing and Ms. Feehan keeps devising new and exciting ways to keep the reader immersed in the pages.  Power Game is a great suspenseful paranormal read featuring one hell of a scorching couple.

Christine Feehan is a semi new author to me but when I saw this book and read the blurb I really liked how it sounded and of course had to devour it in one sitting. Shadow Rider is the first book in the Shadow series and once I started getting into this new world that Feehan created I was totally hooked. I want to say this story is a contemporary with a paranormal twist. There were no fairies, vampires or even werewolves for that matter, but it was about a family that can mask themselves in shadows which was very unique and intriguing.

 

Stefano is the head of the powerful Ferraro family. He might be the oldest of his siblings but he is one of the most bad ass heroes I have read about in a long time. The shadow walker legacy goes back centuries and they have a hard time finding their other halves so their marriages are usually arranged so the legacy will live on. It just so happens Stefano is about to leave town for a job when he comes across Francesca by mistake and it turns out to be the best thing that has ever happened to him because she is a rider.

 

Francesca has no idea that her life is about to change when Stefano steps in and gives her his coat and some money. She also has no idea that she is a rider. It’s up to Stefano to convince Francesca to accept all of him at her own free will, but it’s going to take some time. Sometimes she finds his bossiness and hard tone a bit scary even if she also thinks he is his most attractive at those moments.

 

Usually during reading a story I always favor one character more than the others but during Shadow Rider I honestly had no favorites because I really liked each and every character. The way Feehan wrote each member of the Ferraro family just worked. They were close and I just really took to how different their personalities were. Stefano was bossy, sexy and had this deadly air around him but he also came off as sweet and charming. Francesca did a great job at holding her ground and gave him sass when he pushed her to do something but I could see her starting to trust him and his word little by little.

 

Everyone loves a good love scene, but oh man did Feehan bring it with each and every one. They are detailed and last over numerous pages without being too wordy. Now don’t get me wrong during the story there was some repeating when it wasn’t needed but I felt it didn’t take away from the story. Shadow Rider is filled with plenty of action on top of the romance that is blooming and really had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The ending sets up for the next book and already I am stalking Feehan’s website to find out when it will be released and who it will be about. If you haven’t picked up Shadow Rider I would do so today and get to know Stefano and Francesca.

Evangeline Tregre is trying to leave her former life behind.  She wants nothing to do with the Leopard’s of Louisiana.  Evangeline is following her passion to San Antonio where she opened a bakery.  She is satisfied to start her days early and end them late baking for her customers.  However, she never counted on one of her customers disrupting her new quiet life.

 

Alonzo Massi is content to lead a life alone with his dangerous Amur Leopard.  He is coming up in the San Antonio mob scene.  The last thing Alonzo needs with the danger stalking closer is a woman.  One look at Evangeline and Alonzo’s life is changed forever.  He cannot run from the feelings she inspires. Can he romance her and protect her from his life?

 

Christine Feehan takes her readers on a fiery wild ride in Leopard’s Fury.  I could not get enough of this story.  I was addicted from page one!  Evangeline and Alonzo set the pages ablaze with their intense forbidden attraction.  Feehan’s characters are rich with provocative and poignant backstories.  I’m not sure there are two characters more worthy of a happy ending than Evangeline and Alonzo.  I became deeply attached to them both and could not wait for them to give in to the passion between them.

 

I cannot believe that Leopard’s Fury is the ninth book in Feehan’s Leopard’s series.  It is not necessary to have read the previous novels to follow this one but it does make it much sweeter.  I love when characters from past novels show up in new ones and this one is full of juicy stories from beloved Leopard series characters.

 

Leopard’s Fury is full of gritty suspense and romance.  This one will keep you on your toes.

Ivory was thought to be long dead, but in reality she is the myth that locals have been talking about for a number of years. She travels by wolf pack and can even communicate with them. She helps save the life of the mage Razvan who she finds hurt and dying on a mountainside, but when she gets closer they both realize they are meant to be life mates. While she is not sure this is what she wants she won’t leave him to suffer, especially when she sees into his mind and realizes he too is a victim of the same horrible mage.

As time moves on it becomes apparent that both Ivory and Razvan must rid the world of the evil mage Xavier. They will also do whatever is needed to protect their new love no matter what others of their race might think.

While I found Dark Slayer one of the more intriguing Carpathian stories by Ms. Feehan I also found it to be one of the darkest. There seemed to be more pain, injuries, and psychological trauma than in some of the more recent Carpathian stories. I am still a big fan of the overall series but in Dark Slayer it seemed that Ms. Freehan was also trying to fill up space by having a lot of the Carpathian to English translations of love phrases etc. I felt it in a way detracted from the power of the story, making it drag.

That these two characters should find each other and go after one of the biggest evils of all was one of the things that keep most readers coming back to Ms. Feehan.
