Daniel Beckett is the last of the Beckett brothers (wizards and werewolves) to cast the spell that will bring his mate to him.  For weeks now, Daniel has been fighting his brother’s demands that he cast the spell with everything he is worth..  It’s not that Daniel doesn’t know who that spell will bring to him or that he doesn’t want her with him, it’s that he just knows that by calling her, it will start something that could lead to everyone’s doom.  But, finally, he has to give in and cast the spell, and hope.

 

Kerry Andrews also knows that she is Daniel’s mate, and she has acknowledged their attraction to each other long ago.  But as a human and a nurse, she has no sway in the world that Daniel lives in even though Kerry has been getting help from one of the most powerful women wizards around, who is her best friend’s grandmother.  Kerry has almost given up hope that Daniel will ever call her to his side when she just knows it has to happen.

 

What should have been a simple spell to bring Daniel and Kerry together, instead starts off a chain reaction that will put not only Kerry in danger, but will also reveal a hidden part of Kerry’s background that will have the potential to put her in even more danger than being targeted by the last of the evil Godwin warlock men.  Daniel and Kerry will have to work fast and believe in their love strongly to end not only all the treats to Kerry’s life, but also the Godwin threat to all each of the Beckett’s holds dear.  It comes down to a deadly fight of good power versus evil power, and the winners will win it all and, as normal, it appears that evil has stacked the deck.

 

Two lovers will fight not only for their right to a loving future, but for their very lives and those of their loved ones in Warlock Unbound.  It seems like I waited forever to see Daniel finally accept Kerry as his mate, and I was happy to see him finally do it.  I wasn’t surprised to learn that the Godwin wizard brothers had made a preemptive strike in this final round of their war against the Becketts.  However, I loved watching as all the Becketts and their mates came together to help Daniel and Kerry with their fights and to help them discover a way that Daniel and Kerry could be together forever.  While I enjoyed the final battle that ended the Godwin threat, I really loved being a fly on the wall on the family Samhain celebration the best.  I can safely say that the next generation of Becketts will keep everyone on their toes even more than these brothers.  Warlock Unbound is full of suspense and passion, with the perfect touches of humor and family bonding that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next.

SON OF A PREACHER MAN by Arianna HartSon of a Preacher Man by Arianna Hart
Published by Samhain Publishing Genres: Contemporary, Suspense

Nadya Sarov never thought that she would return to Dale, Georgia after she and her mother fled during the thick of the night twelve years ago.  Yet, here she is once again in Dale to take care of some family matters.  But this time, she refuses to allow the town folks to label her a gypsy outcast for she is now a successful lawyer from New York.

 

J.T. McBride is the son of the town’s preacher and Nadya was his high school sweetheart.  Occurrences drives them to lead different lives until years later fate reunited them.  This time around, J.T. refuses to allow Nadya to slip through his fingers.  Will J.T. be able to convince Nadya that she belongs in Dale, Georgia with him?  Especially, since someone is equally determined to run Nadya out of town once again.

 

Son of a Preacher Man is an enjoyable read filled with suspense, romance, and envy.  Whereas, it is somewhat easy to figure out the identity of the villain who has set its sights on threatening Nadya in the beginning of the storyline; the reasoning as to why is a surprising aspect in the conclusion of the novel.  And, if that is not enough for Nadya and J.T. to deal with, the couple also receive resentment from women who envied Nadya’s beauty and success.  The courtship of Nadya and J.T. is spicy and very lustful in nature.  Heat will definitely run its course through your body during their sexual encounters.  Although, there is no major shocking factor that will have you hanging on the edge of your seat, the storyline is well-written and a pleasure to read.

Gator Rollins, along with his friends, left their old pack and its abusive Alpha and rules. Now, they have their own pack, Salvation, but they are still always on the watch for danger, because no one ever leaves their old pack and because they have not only left, but are starting new and fulfilling lives.  Gator has watched as three of his friends have found and mated with women they love.  While he is very happy for them, Gator feels the same heartache he has felt since he loved a woman who died.

 

Sylvie LaForge Dubois is a dead woman, well as far as the majority of her old pack is concerned.  Actually, she is an abused woman who got away from her mate, because she was thought to be dead, and she ran.  Now, Sylvie is tired of running and after being told about the Salvation Pack and who they are, she is reaching out to see if maybe, just maybe, she could find a spot there where she won’t have to worry day in and day out.  Sylvie knows that it won’t be easy coming back from the dead and that it could truly mean her death.

 

Gator is beyond stunned when that intruder he was tracking turned out be Sylvie, the woman he loved and lost so long ago. She is also the sister of one of his best friends and a member of the new pack. A few misunderstandings almost have Sylvie convinced that she must disappear yet again, but those are quickly over. Now her biggest concern is Gator, the one wolf she is attracted to and partially scared of, having barely survived a strong and dominate werewolf mate before.  Gator is not about to let anyone or anything take Sylvie away from him again, not her brother, not this pack, and certainly not anyone from their old pack.  When yet another threat to the Salvation Pack and Sylvie shows up, Gator is just the man to take care of things.  At last, Gator can show Sylvie how he feels and learns that their passion is mutual.  The future is beginning to look bright for Gator and Sylvie, yet everyone in the Salvation Pack knows that the danger is not over so long as their old pack knows about Sylvie—not counting that the Salvation Pack itself is on the hit list of their old Alpha.  But for now, Gator and Sylvie are the newest mates to be celebrated and welcomed.

 

A second chance at love and happiness come to two werewolves who both thought they had lost their chances forever in The Wolf from the Past.  I could only cheer as Sylvie’s story came out at how strong she had been to not only overcome the abuse, but to survive on her own for so long.  I always knew that Gator would be a strong lover and mate to the right person. It didn’t take long for me to understand that Sylvie was just that person.  I smiled a few times as the maneuvers happened in the Salvation Pack to embrace Sylvie and Gator having to deal with his best friend and Sylvie’s brother.  I had no doubt that Gator would protect his pack and especially Sylvie when the danger came, and he proved me so right.  I loved it when Gator and Sylvie finally got the chance to experience the love that both were so sure had passed them by.  Wolf from the Past had not only the danger that I have come to expect in Salvation pack stories, but also the passion and, in this case, the best type—a second chance for a pair who had given up hope.  Gator and Sylvie prove that love can triumph over just about anything when given the chance.

Ava Malia is a new agent with the Specialized Crimes Unit and, while she isn’t comfortable with her new team quite yet, she knows it will come.  But Ava’s first priority is to complete her first case, which actually has ties to her prior professional life. It seems that everyone is hunting for a new technology that might not even be valid, and yet the creator has been murdered for it.  Following her best lead, Ava is now fighting an attraction to her person of interest in this case.

 

Dr. H escaped the hell that he and his sister were in for many years.  Now they are running a psychic center that will hopefully help protect and teach others with abilities and not allow them to be caught up and tortured like he and his sister were.  Dr. H can usually pick out , government agents as soon as they approach him and since the murder of a friend that he had been working on project with, many have approached him.  The thing bugging Dr. H right now is the woman who is auditing one of his psychic study groups; the instant attraction is almost more then he can deal with.

 

Ava went in to this case with a clear objective, but now those objectives are a bit blurry as she fights the attraction she feels for Dr. H. Because, how can you get close to someone when you met on a lie?  When the danger threatens both of them and then Ava is hurt, the case changes yet again as new, hidden abilities appear in Ava.  With these abilities, she will need Dr. H’s help with to survive and now that he knows she is more than an auditor, how can he trust her enough to help her?  Both Ava and Dr. H soon learn that they really can’t say no to fate, but can they overcome the trust issue and the lie that they first met under in order to let their passion have a chance at forever?

 

When a man and a woman, who both have hidden secrets, meet under false pretenses, can love have a chance?  Dr. H and Ava will have to discover that answer in Illicit Intuitions.  Wow! When you begin a suspense, you know that at least one of the main characters will have a secret, but in this case, I found that they both did, and it turned out that there was more than one.  I really loved watching as Ava and Dr. H struggled with their mutual attraction and to find a way to win against the danger that was threatening them.  There was at least once when I truly was not sure if they would come out at the end together.  The many twists and turns that I went through with Ava and Dr. H just added to both their romance and to the suspense of their story.  I will admit to reading this series out of order, and I was more than ready to discover just how Ava and Dr. H met, and it was worth backtracking to find their story. Illicit Intuitions is a combo of romance and suspense and, of course, a touch of psychic abilities that combine into a wonderful ending where the romance wins, of course.

As the son of a demon king James Sinclair has certain obligations, a job to steer humans on a downward course.  When he’s not working James invariably gets into trouble with his twin brother.  Their latest jest was to steal a prized egg from the Dragon Queen.  The snatch worked flawlessly until they were caught.  To pay for his part in the fun James will spend the next ten days at the mercy of the dragon prince Teban, his best friend.

 

Coming to the aid of a seemingly helpless teenager in the lower realm on the way to Teban proves to be very wrong indeed when she turns out to be one of the dreaded Havoc.  Barely conscious from the girl’s tender care James is saved by her aunt of all things, who takes a liking to the badly bleeding and bitten demon.  As Teban shows up after tracking the missing demon aunt Kihra decides the dragon prince will make an excellent mate as well.  James and Teban believe that they are humoring the sexy Havoc female.  Eventually they will realize Kihra is serious, completely serious.

 

Hot as…well, hell, Havoc & Hell: A Dragon’s Prize brings together three unlikely beings with passionate results.  Easy going James, intense Teban, and ruthless Kihra will challenge each other and destroy anyone who tries to tear them apart.  Their confusion as to who’s in charge brings a layer of humor to the unique romance.  Scorching heat between the characters keeps the love story strong, but mention of levels of hell, demon types, and such is unfortunately sometimes hard to follow.
