Sue Walsh has been kicked by life too many times to count, including the sudden disappearance of her best friend.  Now, Sue just wants to keep a roof over her and her son’s heads and be left alone.  Sue recently moved into her friend’s cabin, and she now works at a restaurant in town as a waitress.  Now, Sue has learned that her ex-husband is going to try and gain custody of their son.  Over Sue’s dead body.

 

Elias Gallagher is a full-blooded wolf who left his pack in Alaska years ago with his brother when his brother fell in love and mated with a half-breed.  They all lived together happily, especially when his nephews were born.  Now, because of an unexpected tragedy, Elias is the guardian of his nephews and the Alpha of their small family pack.  Elias knows that he needs to find a safe place to finish raising his teen nephews, and he has heard of a small, but unusual, pack in Salvation that might accept them, even with two half-breeds.

 

Elias and his nephews arrive in Salvation, and Elias decides to camp out while he checks out the pack before risking his nephews to a possible automatic death just for being half-breeds.  That first night, his nephews run into Sue while they’re on a run—one as a wolf and one human—and Elias has to come up with a quick explanation.  Sue isn’t sure about the three new arrivals in town, but she is attracted to Elias.  One day, when Sue hears a plan to harm wolves in a private area outside of town, she knows that she has to say something to the property owner.  That decision puts Sue and her son into deadly danger and gives Elias a reason to keep close to Sue—his human mate.  As Elias and Sue begin to explore their attraction, it becomes very clear that in order to keep Sue and her son safe, he will have to tell her the secret of the Salvation Pack and that her missing friend is alive and well and closer than she ever imagined.  Sue and Elias have a special love, but will they, Elias’ nephews, and Sue’s son all be welcomed into the Salvation Pack, or will they have to strike out to form their own pack somewhere else?

 

When a full-blooded werewolf comes to Salvation with his half-breed nephews in hopes of being accepted, he knows he is putting all their lives in danger, then throw in meeting his mate, a human woman, and you have just a part of what happens in Wolf on a Mission.  I could tell right off that Elias was an awesome man as I learned just what he had done and was doing for the love of his family.  I just wanted to give Sue a hug as I learned everything she had happen to her in two short years.  I was more than rooting for Elias and his two nephews to find a home in Salvation.  Those cheers became louder as I watched Elias and Sue find their footing amid a surprising passion that sprang up between them.  I have always known that the members of the Salvation Pack were special and they proved it by accepting this very unusual family.  Wolf on a Mission proves that you really can have a second chance by just reaching out, even if that reach is surrounded by danger and the day to day dramas.

Gray Everson is a painter just looking for a peaceful place to live and create her art.  When she found a small cabin in the woods that she could rent, Gray jumped on it, even when she was told that the current owner of the cabin had been attacked by a wolf.  After all, how often could that happen? Maybe that shouldn’t have been a question asked.

 

Louis LaForge is a werewolf and the brother to the Alpha of the Salvation Pack.  Louis has slowly watched each member of his pack find their mates and has overseen their pack grow with each mating.  Louis has just about given up hope of ever finding his mate, so he has put all of his strength into protecting his pack.  Right now all of the men are waiting for the next shoe to drop, because it’s just been too quiet, and they all know that their old Alpha, Louis’ father, has not given up on his quest to destroy Salvation.

 

While out on routine security rounds, Louis decides to check a pack member’s cabin.  It’s a fateful decision.  Not only does Louis meet Gray, but he is also shot and injured by some local hunters.  Gray is worried when she hears the gunshots and mad when she finds the shot wolf.  Once Gary gets Louis to her cabin, she gets rid of the hunters and then discovers that her “wolf” is a very special man.  Louise realizes immediately that Gray is his mate, now he just needs to convince her and show her that taking a chance on him and their mating will lead to a passion-filled future.  But, of course, during this time, his father decides to mount an attack meant to take out all the members of the Salvation Pack.  Hidden allies are going to have to make choices that can never be changed.  When the dust settles, has the Salvation Pack survived to live another day?  And even with the danger, has Louis shown Gray that she will never regret giving their mating a chance?

 

When the last unmated member of the Salvation Pack meets the new artist renting a pack member’s cabin, passion is instant and love is right around the corner in Wolf on the Hunt.  Louis and Gray have the odds against them as they begin their journey towards their forever love.  Louis knows it’s hard enough to convince a human to take a chance on a werewolf, and now with the danger involved, it’s even longer odds, or so Louis believes.  Gray might not have expected the wolf she saved to become a sexy man but she could not deny the passion between them once she discovers Louis’ secret.  I enjoyed watching as Louis and Gray not only grabbed at their chance for love, but also helped the rest of the pack when the danger was at its highest.  What I really loved was that after the dust had settled, the outcome of the battle had several members of the Salvation Pack gaining something they never thought would happen.  Wolf on the Hunt is full of suspense-filled danger mixed with passion and the fellowship of family—both blood and dear friends.  It’s a great continuation of a series I have loved from the beginning.

HER MIRACLE MAN by Nikki DuncanHer Miracle Man by Nikki Duncan
Published by Samhain Publishing Genres: Contemporary, Military

Jennalyn James is submerged in grief.  A year ago, she lost her parents to a horrific car accident.  She watched her beloved younger sister, Sabrina, die from complications of a traumatic brain injury that she sustained in the same car accident that killed their parents.  And, to top it off, a week before her sister dies, Jennalyn’s fiancé broke off their engagement.

 

It has been almost a year since Children’s Hospital administrator Ryland Davids has seen Jennalyn James.  She touched him deeply during her time at the hospital.  He was right by Jennalyn’s side when her sister Sabrina took her last breath.  Due to her fragile state and his own past emotional scars, Ryland decides not to pursue Jennalyn romantically.  That is until they begin to spend time together granting Sabrina’s last wish – planning A Month of Miracles during the Christmas season for recovering children in the hospital.

 

Her Miracle Man is an emotional and touching tale that will pull heavily at your heartstrings.  Grief is such a difficult topic to deal with.  You will learn that despite sorrow; life does go on.  The key is having the wiliness to accept emotional support as time moves forward.  While, the internal pain never really goes away, time does diminish the aching heart.  This is definitely a fact for Jennalyn.  With the joyous feelings expressed from the children receiving the month of miracles and the infinite support from Ryland, Jennalyn is able to rebound from her grief and in the process finds true love with Ryland.  Just as the title suggests, Ryland is a ‘miracle man’ for Jennalyn.  He is compassionate, patient, smart, and sincere.  Her Miracle Man is one story that I will not easily forget.  I Joyfully Recommend Her Miracle Man as must read!  This is one story not to be missed.

On the highway heading to Alaska Mick Randall has one eye on the road ahead and the other looking over his shoulder.  With any luck he can outrun his biker family and leave them in the past.  Low on cash Mick manages to pick up a job at Bell’s Auto Wrecking outside of Portland.  It’s the perfect setup for making some quick money with an old man owner and his taciturn grandson Scotty, his other employee.  The only other sign of life around the place is when Mercy Taylor comes around.  She seems to be the one person who draws Scotty away from his work.

 

Mick finds himself attracted to Scotty while at the same time he’s intrigued by Mercy, who’s apparently got her own family issues.  Each of the three are dealing with ghosts of the past, both living and long dead.  Maybe it’s time to lay them all to rest.

 

A unique blend of secrets and unresolved issues, Torque manages to shine a light on their darkness.  The three main characters are heavily weighed down by the past.  Individually they haven’t been able to resolve anything.  In Torque it is Mick’s arrival that serves as a catalyst for change.  This character driven story convincingly brings them together before the end.

Series: Promise Harbor Wedding #4

Allie would rather be anywhere else on the planet than at her own wedding.  But she’s sure marriage to longtime family friend Josh will be the key to making both of their families happy.  So, sick and miserable at the altar, Allie gets the shock of a lifetime when the man she loves – not her groom – literally sweeps her off her feet and out the door.

 

Gavin has loved Allie for years and when she drunkenly calls him before her wedding, he knows she’s unhappy.  Gavin let Allie go once, but he’s not about to stand by and watch her marry someone else.  What can a man in love do, but steal the bride from a wedding and take her thousands of miles away from her life?

 

For Allie, a trip to Alaska with Gavin feels like a break from reality, but she knows she has to return to Promise Harbor and her family soon.  Still, she can’t resist the freedom living with Gavin offers, and she’s determined to enjoy it while she can.  But will Gavin be able to convince her that – despite all their differences, the weight of the past, and the pressures of the future – he’s the only man she should be marrying?

 

Even true love needs a helping hand in Hitched.  The Promise Harbor Wedding series comes to a satisfying end when the runaway bride is swept off to a beautiful, small town that’ll make you want to fly to Alaska.

 

Of all the books in the Promise Harbor Wedding series, this is the only one I was wary of reading.  I liked Josh so much, I wasn’t sure how author Erin Nicholas would make me like the woman who ditched him at the altar.  Fortunately, Ms. Nicholas was more than up to the task of making Allie a likeable heroine.  Allie wants to do the right thing, wants to make her family happy, but she’s been doing so at the expense of herself.  Her tumultuous relationship with Gavin was something she always kept separate from the rest of her life, and she even sacrificed that to try and do what she thought would please others.  Running off with Gavin is the first thing she does for herself, and it’s a good thing (and not only because we know that Josh found his true love in Jilted).  In Alaska, Allie not only reconnects with Gavin, she finds her inner strength and comes into her own.  Though at times she almost hits martyr territory, it’s part of the journey.  Watching Allie grow as a character was quite possibly my favorite thing about Hitched.

 

Gavin and Allie’s romance is filled with ups and downs as Gavin pushes Allie to choose a life with him when she’s not ready to change her life so dramatically.  Gavin is pushy, but he’s not selfish.  He can see that Allie is better away from her family and the responsibility that’s literally making her sick.  All in all, Gavin is a pretty fantastic hero and I was cheering for him every step of the way.  Love has never been a problem for Gavin and Allie, but it takes both of them finally opening up their minds to each other’s points of view that gives them what they need.  That, and a little help from secondary characters, makes Hitched a satisfying story.
