Black Knights Inc. #6A NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BEST SELLING NOVEL Black Knights Inc.-Behind the façade of their tricked-out motorcycle shop is an elite special ops team assigned the jobs too hot for anyone else to handle. Only a crisis could persuade Delilah Fairchild to abandon her beloved biker bar, let alone ask Black Knights Inc. operator Bryan

Delilah Fairchild is still reeling from the shootout at her bar that left one of her patrons dead.  The last thing she wants to do is ask Bryan “Mac” McMillan for help. When her uncle goes missing, Delilah has little choice but to ask the Black Knights for help finding him.

 

Black Knight operator Bryan McMillan can’t figure out why the local barkeep Delilah Fairchild gets under his skin so badly.  When Delilah comes to him and his friends for help he is propelled into action. It doesn’t take long for them to realize that there is more to Delilah’s uncle than meets the eye. Will they escape danger and find love in the process?

 

Hell For Leather is full of edge-of-your-seat action and heart racing romance.  Julie Ann Walker out does herself in the sixth installment of the Black Knights Inc. series.  Mac and Delilah really turn up the heat making the pages sizzle.  The suspense in Hell For Leather is top-notch!  Some of the scenes are written so brilliantly they make you feel like you are taking part in the action.  I warn pet lovers there are some heart stopping scenes that had me tearing up!

 

I enjoyed the characters of Delilah and Mac. Delilah is such a firecracker! While she needs help she kicks a little butt herself! I so like it when the heroines are as fierce as the heroes. Mac is your typical hero but I delighted in his inner struggle with his feelings and his fondness for dressers. I also liked the introduction of new characters and I cannot wait to learn more about them in future Black Knights Inc. books.  Hell For Leather is a great summer read!  After all, this is the season of the blockbuster!

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Black Knights Inc. series is back with even more full-throttle romantic suspense Romantic Suspense: Wealthy heiress Eve Edens has been abandoned, used, or manipulated by almost everyone she's ever met. So now she lives by 3 simple rules: 1. Trust no one. After three botched attempts on her life, she can no longer ignore the truth-someone wants her dead. 2. Avoid bad boys at all costs. Eve may have hired William

Eve Edens believes someone is out to kill her.  Unfortunately, no one believes that she is in danger.  There is only one place left for Eve to turn.  Eve is wary of placing herself in the path of Billy Reichert but every other avenue has been exhausted.  When Eve asks the Black Knights for help, she gets more than she bargained for.  She believes they can protect her from the people trying to kill her but how is she supposed to protect her heart from Billy?

 

“Wild” Bill Reichert is known for his ability to diffuse the most complicated explosives.  However, when Eve Edens, his little sister’s best friend, comes to the Black Knights for help he is suddenly caught off guard.  He may not want to like Eve but he can’t hide from the feelings she inspires.  Billy isn’t about to let anything happen to Eve. But will she be a danger to his heart?

 

Walker keeps her Black Knights Inc. series fresh and wild with the fifth novel, Born Wild.  I’ve been waiting to learn more about Eve and Billy since book two of the series, In Rides Trouble. I was not disappointed as their story unfolds in Born Wild. Eve is a strong woman who has worked hard for her independence; therefore, asking for help is not an easy thing.  Billy may want to ignore the chemistry boiling between them but close quarters is making that difficult.  I love the banter between these two.  Born Wild features plenty of sensual scenes and action-packed sequences at which Ms. Walker excels.

JoyfullyRecommendedSpecial Forces Captain Landon Donovan isn’t exactly happy when he is pulled away from his team in the middle of a mission for a secret assignment.  When he learns he is to be teamed up with a woman he finds sexy as sin, he feels a little better about this assignment. After seeing the beauty fight, Landon is downright excited.

Female shifter Ivy Halliwell isn’t happy to be teamed with another Special Ops guy.  She’s had several partners and none of them have respected her natural talents.  She learns quickly that Landon is different.  He is happy to use her extra gifts to hunt down the bad guys. The only problem is that Ivy can’t stop wanting to jump his bones!  Ivy and Landon will be tested as a major bad guy emerges, putting them in danger. Will they survive long enough to test their feelings for each other?

Paige Tyler has a purrrfect hit on her hands with Her Perfect Mate.  I have been craving a shifter romance that burns the pages and Ms. Tyler’s Her Perfect Mate is brilliantly satisfying.  I absolutely love Her Perfect Mate it has everything you need in a paranormal romance…action, suspense, desire, sizzling chemistry and a romance to die for!

Tyler creates an intriguing world for her phenomenally layered characters.  Landon is your sexy military guy with a hardened exterior but his heart shines through and proves he is much more.   Ivy is exasperated with her partner situation as all of the ones in the past have disregarded her and her skills.  Landon is a delightful change for Ivy and I love how he throws her off balance with his willingness to work together.  They share some intensely sexy scenes.  These two are hot, hot hot! There is one scene that I love and it involves a pizza guy! I could not stop laughing it was totally adorable.  Her Perfect Mate is a movie in the making!  The end was action-packed and so thrilling!  I was holding my breath in anticipation!  You do not want to miss out on this blockbuster read!

Her Perfect Mate is definitely on my Best of list for 2014!

Two deadly predators... As a feline Enforcer, Tammy Anderson has one objective: locate the missing jaguar and return it to the States. She doesn't have time for distractions, and she definitely doesn't have time for sexy shifters with more muscles than sense. One hot mission... Everyone and their brother has warned JAG agent David Patterson that Tammy is Ms. Hands-Off...which only makes him more determined to get very hands-on. But things heat up in the steamy jungles of Belize and their simple mission gets a whole lot more complicated. Now it's going to take everything David's got to protect the gorgeous she-cat who somehow managed to claw her way past his defenses...and into his heart.

JoyfullyRecommendedEnforcer Tammy Anderson has a reputation among her fellow enforcers as a one woman show.  Tammy likes to leave her partners in the dust.  Her latest case involves a missing jaguar.  She is all set to head to Belize to find the jaguar when she discovers she has been assigned a partner for this mission.

 

JAG Agent David Patterson has heard a lot about Tammy.  None of that prepared him for the insane chemistry and protective feelings she arouses. She manages to get away from him once but as they arrive in Belize they both realize having a partner may be a good thing.

 

The case of the missing Jaguar becomes more complicated than either Tammy or David anticipated.  Danger stalks their every move as things heat up in the jungle.  Tammy and David ache to explore the intense feelings between them but they may not get the chance as it seems someone wants them dead.

 

Terry Spear makes the pages of her latest Jaguar book catch fire with her steamy characters and suspenseful storytelling.  Jaguar Hunt takes us from Texas to Belize and back with one hell of a plotline and plenty of passion.  Tammy and David are the perfect pair; it was exciting falling in love with them as the story unfolded.  Tammy is such a strong and crafty character. She is definitely capable of taking care of herself but she has forgotten what it is like to have someone take care of her.  David is smitten with Tammy right away. He really can put her in her place and come out all innocent.  I just love the teasing banter they have throughout the story.

 

Ms. Spear does an excellent job of creating a visual of the jungle setting for the reader.  The entire zip line scenario made me want to vomit and that is actually good because I felt like I was experiencing the happenings with the characters.  I do love the Belize setting but I could really do without the snakes!

 

Jaguar Hunt takes the reader on a wild adventure…one they won’t want to end!

To Raine McCandless family means everything, so when her grandfather needed her help Raine quit her job, and moved home to the family ranch.  Now Raine is a deputy at the same sheriff’s office where her father was once the sheriff.  There are some good points and bad points for being back where she grew up, but Raine is determined to do whatever is necessary to keep the ranch running and to do a job that she fully believes in.

Dillon Taylor is a nephilim, a child born from the union of a human and an angel.  His primary job so far has been to track down the demons that show up on the human surface and to send them back where they belong.  But Dillion has been in a rut for awhile and he decided to answer the many prayers of an old man who was driving him crazy with constant prayers.   Little did Dillion know that answering an old man’s greatest wish would bring him heartache. 

Raine can’t believe her eyes and ears when she finds out that the sexy intruder she located in her home is someone that only she and her grandfather can see.  But when Dillion warns Raine that a robbery will happen and that begins a journey that will change both Raine and Dillion’s fates.  Mishaps, misinformation and misdirection are just a few words that describe the chaos of Raine’s next week.  Dillion realizes that he has hurt Raine more than helped and now he is trying to fix things at the same time that Raine is wondering if she really is going crazy falling for a man who isn’t even human.  The investigation on just who the robbers are is filled with danger, humor, and most important love found.  By the time the dust settles is there any path that will allow Raine and Dillion to be together?

Take one sexy immortal and one determined deputy, stir in a grandfather’s wishes and sprinkle with a mixed up crime and passion and you have the perfect plot of Smoking Hot.  Man oh man, was this book ever titled correctly.  I could feel the heat from the minute that Raine and Dillion met.  I will tell you that I fell for Raine and Dillion from the start and began my cheer for them to find not only the answers to get Raine’s fate back in order but also a way for them to live in the love they found together.  I also fell for Raine’s grandfather, after all how can you not fall for a spunky old guy who still believes in the answering of prayers.  The suspense of just who was behind the robbery was the perfect counterbalance of the passion that flared between Raine and Dillion.  I also loved how there was just the perfect amount of humor about the mishaps that seemed to plague Raine and Dillion.  Smoking Hot is equal parts erotic passion and suspense with just the right touch of humor that makes it a Joyfully Recommended Read for me.  Not only is Smoking Hot on my keeper shelf, but I will be putting it on my ereader so that I can always have it at hand.
