Book Description:

Tech mogul and workaholic Wolf Evan Luparell has little time for distractions but takes a break for his brother’s wedding in South Dakota. When asked to escort another wedding attendee from the airport to Los Lobos, he agrees. Then he meets the curvy spitfire, and she ignores him.

Designer and Wolf Mina Carver didn’t mean to be rude to the handsome, glowering man claiming to be her ride, but she was busy working. Now she must endure a ride to the Black Hills with the cranky but sexy Dominant Wolf. Unexpected mating energy sparks between them, but still—should she dismiss, or kiss him?

Kisses win and they agree upon a no-strings fling. But with each wedding activity throwing them together, and their powerful chemistry and mate compatibility complicating matters, can two workaholics truly have their fun then walk away?


Evan Luparell needs to be at his brother’s wedding like he needs a whole in his head.  Worse he has to escort another wedding attendee from the airport who practically ignores him.  He does not have time for this.  He loves his brother but sparing 1 hour let alone a whole weekend from his business is killing him. He has so much to do.  Well that was until he realized this escort who is annoying as hell maybe his mate and to top it off she is looking for a weekend fling.

Both workaholics, both not looking for anything more but can they help the mating attraction.  This story takes you on that journey of two people fated but devoted to their work.  Can they juggle both, do they even want to?

Story was an interesting light paranormal romance. I liked the characters and the roles each played to make this story.   Definitely a great beach read.

4.5 Stars




Evan tipped his head and eyed the ceiling. Prompt replies, punctual people. Striking deals and hitting deadlines. These items made his world tick. Not loitering around a miniscule airport pulling a Waiting for Godot moment on infinite repeat for a no-show, flakey designer from California.

God grant him patience and balls of steel when he showed up without the designer and the all-important wedding dress, because his future sister-in-law Darci would certainly be unhappy. He’d have to beg a favor from his assistant, have her snag a couture dress, and fly it ASAP to the Rapid City airport. He could afford a gown from some famous designer in Chicago or New York, something likely superior to whatever his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s no-name friend had created. Right? Shit, he hoped women’s fashion proved so easy.

He took a deep fortifying breath and froze. Airport smells assailed his senses—the sharp tang of bleach and lemon-scented cleaners, the floral perfume from Rental Car Girl who eyed him like a piece of candy. Black coffee, donuts, fried fast food, and under it all, the distinct musk of wolf.

Female wolf.

She smelled damn good. His wolf perked up, and his legs propelled him toward the empty baggage claim, where one bright-pink suitcase covered in Hello Kitty stickers sat, unclaimed, on the unmoving L-shaped conveyor belt. Her scent, stronger here, socked his gut, and his gaze shot to the corner.

The chaos around the woman stunned him silent. Large, paper coffee cup, half-eaten banana, and a quarter of a powdered doughnut perched on a brown paper bag next to her. Crumbs splattered the linoleum and the woman’s long-sleeved blue blouse in a thick layer of white, sugary dust. On her other side, two pink garment bags lay like corpses, along with a bubblegum-pink unzipped duffel as long as her outstretched, denim-clad legs. Some of the bag’s contents—pads of drawing paper and large swaths of fabric—protruded over the opening, the fabric splaying over her legs in a rainbow-colored blanket. Her feet peeked out of the mess, encased in sparkling pink UGGs. Good grief, sequins? She smacked her shiny boots together in a poor imitation of Dorothy and bobbed her head from side to side in time to some music only she seemed to hear. Her shoulder-length red hair, the color of ripe dark cherries—his favorite fruit—gleamed under the harsh airport lighting and curtained most her face from his view, save a pert nose and small chin, both speckled with a generous amount of freckles.

He’d always liked freckles.

Clearing his throat, he stepped closer, but she didn’t flinch in surprise or look up. Her attention remained on the tablet on her lap, the stylus between her pale, freckled fingers swiping without hesitation over her screen. Her extreme focus reminded him of his sister Lexi in one of her artistic frenzies. The resemblance ended there.

While his sister took after the rest of their tall, lean, and tan family, this woman seemed the polar opposite—pale, petite, curvy, and freckled. His preferred type. A flicker of interest stirred in his gut. Did she have those cute little spots on the rest of her? Speckled fur when in her wolf form? His wolf huffed his interest in finding out, but Jasmine the Oblivious Designer didn’t acknowledge his presence.

His fascination faded, replaced by renewed irritation. She damn well should have scented and noticed his wolf by now, and she should have waited at their agreed upon rendezvous point. She should not be sitting on the dirty linoleum of an airport, lost in her work. Didn’t she realize the dangers of ignoring her surroundings?

He positioned himself right in front of her wiggly, booted feet. “Excuse me, J—”

“Sh.” She raised her arm and flicked her hand in the universal get lost gesture.

He gaped at her. “Excuse me?”

Another wave of her hand while her stylus streaked across her tablet screen with the other. “Not interested.”

Nice voice. Low and husky. Her attitude, on the other hand…. “But—”

“Go away.” Her velvet voice carried a stubborn edge.

In other circumstances, he would’ve admired her strength. But he’d wasted copious amounts of time hunting for the clearly inconsiderate and irresponsible female. “Fine. Get your own damn ride to Los Lobos. Jasmine.”

Julia stopped walking, thinking, breathing! Her world narrowed to him—his tousled, thick, brown hair, his mesmerizing gray-blue eyes that changed with his every mood, and his long, thick lashes that were the envy of every girl in high school. Julia devoured Ethan with her eyes. She couldn’t help herself. She was starved. He was taller and more built than she recalled, but his handsome face with its square chin, slightly crooked nose from years of playing football, and full, sensuous lips, was the same image that visited her dreams nightly.

Julia knew the instant he became aware of her. He stopped answering Aimee as his gaze shifted and centered on her. His pupils widened and his eyes darkened to a smoky gray. Aimee followed his gaze. Her brows furrowed and she took a step toward Julia. But Ethan grasped her elbow and shook his head.

Julia’s eyes never left Ethan’s tall, muscular frame as he walked toward her. The room and all its inhabitants fell away until there was only him. The soft caress of his eyes touched every inch of her. She studied his face, but his expression was neutral. He stood silently examining her and it was left to Julia to break the silence. The problem was she had no idea what to say. No words were adequate to express how she felt. But as her eyes locked with his, she hoped they voiced what her lips couldn’t. She missed him. Missed him every second, minute, and hour they were apart. When he was hers, he was her best friend, her lover, her confidant. He was her everything. When she lost him, the ground beneath her feet shook so violently, it brought her to her knees and it took years to learn how to stand on her own, without him.

Tears pooled in Julia’s eyes and spilled down her cheeks. She wrapped her arms around herself. Ethan’s assessing gaze tracked her every movement and then his eyes, followed by his mouth, softened.

He remembered.

Review: Tranquility by Grace Jelsnik

“We must find justice for the boy.”

The locals called her “The Crazy Woman of Copper Creek,” but to Caitlyn she was Gram, the woman who taught her to control the visions that had tormented her throughout her early childhood. Upon receipt of an incoherent letter from her grandmother, a letter in which only one point is made clear, a desire to find justice for an unidentified boy, Caitlyn returns to the little cabin on Copper Creek. She’s too late to help Gram, but not too late to satisfy her grandmother’s dying wish. Tormented by guilt over having turned her back on the woman who helped a little girl find her voice, Caitlyn is also determined to solve Gram’s murder.

Trevor, sheriff of Lincoln County, battles his own demons, and now he must also battle the prickly young woman who holds the solution to the unsolved disappearance of a boy last spring. In his attempts to understand the curse that made Caitlyn’s grandmother a local pariah, he learns to understand himself.

Throughout their investigation of Gram’s murder, Caitlyn and Trevor hurtle toward encounters with old enemies: for Caitlyn, a river that whispers sinister threats; for Trevor, a father with a sinister past. Only by vanquishing these enemies will they ever know tranquility.


Caitlyn was mute for the first six years of her life until she was sent to spend her summers with her grandmother who they called  “The Crazy Woman of Copper Creek,”  Although she was not crazy to Caitlyn, she was just gram. Gram who taught her to control her visions, the visions that made her mute because she simply could not handle them.  Now Caitlyn is all grown up and has not been up to that house she spent all those summers in some time. Her Gram had passed but not before sending Caitlyn an incoherent letter about a boy she must help find justice for.

Caitlyn is now determined to resolve her grams dying wish of finding justice for the boy who disappeared last spring. Can she trust the local sheriff Trevor?  As the investigation unfolds, Trevor and Caitlyn find an irritating connection with each other but with the recent murders, and the family secrets that come to light what will they do?

Jelsnik really bought out this town ‘Tranquility’ in her writing.  You really felt you were there in its surrounding’s as if you were in 3D twirling around in the heart of it as she told her story.  The story itself was very intriguing, watching it unfold left me at the edge of my seat.  The banter between Trevor and Jelsnik had me laughing.

Very well written, loved it and highly recommend

Review: Crossing the Line by Audra North


A reporter looking for a big break gets involved with a race car driver with a secret that could destroy his entire team if they find out.

Corrine Bellowes is the only woman in a male profession: sport reporting. So when she gets a chance at the assignment of a lifetime interviewing Ty Riggs, the hottest new driver on and off the track, nothing’s going to stand in her way. Least of all the sexy racecar driver himself. Even if she has to pretend to be someone else to do it.

Ty Riggs has more important things to do than strip down for a magazine spread, but meeting his interviewer, she has him reconsidering the stripping and wanting to cross the line between professional and personal. When the interview is a huge success, Ty has the perfect excuse to spend more time with one particular member of the press. But as their relationship deepens and the season heats up, Corrine’s big secret jeopardizes everything they’ve built.


Corrine Bellowes maybe new at sports writing however she was not new to racing.  She has followed the sport since she was a little girl watching it every Sunday on tv with her grandfather eating grilled cheese sandwiches.  She even went to a few races with him over the years.  She loved the sport which is why she jumped at the chance when her boss handed her the assignment of Interviewing Ty Riggs. ‘The’ Ty Riggs who happens to be the hottest race car driver out there right now. Nothing is going to stand in her way, she was getting this job done.  Then why was she feeling so guilty?  Could she actually go ahead and do what her boss asked her to do to get the story he wants and jeopardize everything, her soul?

Ty Riggs, is at the top of his game right now. After winning you would think he would feel on top of the world, but no, he has his own secrets, family secrets that could hurt his racing companies integrity if it ever got out.   He earned his wins, his title, he worked his way up racing and should be proud but when his family’s racing business was accused of cheating he lost it and blew his cool.  Was it to close to the truth?    Now the reporters are all over him, one in particular however has caught his attention, She seems to see him actually see him.  Can she see what he is hiding?

Secrets! They sure can eat away at you especially when it’s your integrity on the line.  What makes you a good person or a bad person, or is it more what you can live with?   This is a telling tale of two people battling with truth and integrity.   When Ty and Corrine meet there was a definite connection and I loved watching them build their relationship. I would have liked a little more depth between the characters and story itself however it was a nice read. If you are looking for an entertaining read then this is for you.

Review: RISK OF EXPOSURE by Emmy Curtis – Book #6 – Alpha Ops Series  


He is a trained professional—but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss’s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance—don’t make contact. And especially don’t take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie.  But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go.

Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can’t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret—and her                                                       heart— and partner up, or lose everything in a split second . . .


Malone Garrett a former British SAS operative is on a new assignment, watching his boss’s daughter Abby Baston.  How did he end up on the most boring job ever!  She does nothing, sleeps, works, eats, sleeps that is the gist of it until one day he saw a different side of her. A side that did not match her mundane life style.  Intrigued Malone got a little closer.  He made contact, what harm? Step on the brakes Malone, contact did not mean sleeping with the boss’s daughter the biggest “NO” ever.  What he did not expect it was an act, her mundane lifestyle. Abby was full of secrets herself. Now Malone can’t get Abby out of his head and has no intention of letting her go not to mention he can’t any way, her mission has turned into an international crisis, exactly what he is trained for.

Abby Baston scratched an itch with Malone, not that she does this all the time, Hey he’s hot with great hands. Problem bad timing and not knowing Malone was watching her when three slugs followed her into an alley. Now they are stuck with each other and Abby has to trust him and bring him into her mission.

Story was fun and action packed.  Loved the plot concept and the relationship between Malone and Garrett, especially watching the trust grow between them.  The suspense of the situations was there and very apparent but I did not necessarily feel that emotion in the writing. I was told it but did not feel it. It was a good story and will pick up another Curtis book.

Review: The Bad Boy’s Guilt (The Bad Boys of Regret Hollow Book 2) by Sara Daniel

Book Description:

Nicole trusted Wyatt with her heart once. She won’t make the same mistake twice.

A broken-down car destroys Nicole DeMonde’s plan to be cool and self-sufficient when she returns to her hometown for her brother’s wedding. The cop who comes to her rescue is none other than local hottie Wyatt Truman, who slept with her then dumped her when they were teens. She has no choice but to accept his help. However, she knows better than to trust him with her heart twice.

Wyatt is determined to earn Nicole’s forgiveness and make amends for his callous past. Once he lays eyes on her, he can’t help wanting more than forgiveness. In fact, his intentions are starting to bear a suspicious resemblance to the forever variety.

If she can’t avoid Wyatt, a one-night stand might be just the thing Nicole needs to work him out of her system. Or will her recovery plan destroy her heart once and for all?

WARNING: Contains naughty words Grandma wouldn’t approve of, smoking hot love scenes Grandma can’t get enough of, all the quirks of small-town life, and a swoon-worthy, no-cliffhangers-no-regrets romance.


Nicole DeMonde is back in Regret Hollow, her home town for her brother’s wedding. Nicole did not expect her first regret back was the rental car to break down on the side of the road. Nor did she expect right down the street from her ex-cons fathers’ house. Nope, worse the police officer that pulled up just happened to be her ex-boyfriend Wyatt that dumped her after they slept together in her teens.  Yep, they don’t call it Regret Hollow for no reason. Just the weekend she can get through this, as she keeps telling herself but trying to avoid Wyatt has become a problem.

Wyatt on the other hand is not letting up he wants to make amends for the way he treated her so he is constantly pushing but the issue now is she is being pushed right into his heart.

Regrets? Definitely we all have one or two. This story takes you through the struggles and triumphs working through those regrets in your life.   What better way to work it out than hot steamy sex oh yeah that definitely helps.  Wyatt and Nicole definitely have that going on and much more.

If you are looking for a light Steamy read I recommend

Review: The Art of Going Home by Nicole Sorrell

Engaging and heart felt all the way through.  Maddie left her hometown for a reason. The memories of her twin dead sister was too over whelming for Maddie. It haunted her and as Maddie got closer to the tiny town she grew up in she felt the draw back in.  Just a few days that’s it, just a few days to go to the funeral and hop back on the plane, well so she thought.  What she did not expect was a persuasion to track down her sister’s killer, her first high school crush and old suppressed memories to come crashing down on her.

Suspenseful to say the least. Sorell did an excellent job of capturing and embracing you throughout the story. The emotions from Maddie uncovering the truth, her families’ deep secrets to all the secondary characters who played intricate roles really bought this story to another level.

Maddie tries to keep her distance from Zac her old high school crush. It doesn’t help that he just may be hotter than he was in high school and his persistence to be in her life is just too much for her to deny.  You felt their chemistry and her struggle to deny her true happiness but can she much longer.

Family? You can’t pick them, but they are just that family, take them or leave them.  If you are looking for a suspenseful mystery with action packed drama, a hot romance and a reminder of the meaning of family, I highly recommend.  You will not be disappointed.

Review: Somewhere in Time: The Fine Art of Deception Series By Alyssa Richards


On a mission to put her past finally behind her, Addison must team up with her greatest enemy. But will she lose the love of her life in the process of finding the truth about her family?

The wait is finally over! Alyssa Richards is back with SOMEWHERE IN TIME, the second novel in The Fine Art of Deception series. Just when all seems well in Addison Montgomery’s world—she’s happy and found the love of her life—life throws one heck of a wrench into things. Addison must choose whether to save the love of her life or finally find the truth about her family’s past.


Addison Montgomery has finally found love with the man of her dreams, Blake Greenwood, and is ready to live another lifetime of happiness with him. But the morning they’re supposed to bring closure to their dark, violent past, all chances of a happily-ever-after turn as dead as the ghosts she sees on a daily basis.

Now Addie must team up with her greatest enemy, embracing her not-quite-perfect gift of reading art psychically. If she succeeds, she will finally learn the truth behind her father’s and grandfather’s disappearances. If she fails, every chance at love she’s ever hoped for will be destroyed. But one thing is clear: she has to choose between saving Blake or her family, and there’s no way she can ever have both.


Addison and Blake are back from Paris to bring closure and put Otto behind bars. Something goes wrong which forces Addison to possibly have to team up with her biggest enemy.  He will never let her go and she knows it. He will use her ability to read objects history for authentication until it kills her.  She will always be on the run.  She has to find a way to stop him but at what stake.  Losing Blake her soul mate of at least two of her last lifetimes or her family.  Otto as scheming as ever always seems to be one step ahead.

If you enjoy the art world with a twist of paranormal romance and suspense then I recommend ‘Somewhere in Time’ to be added to your TBR.  Richards brings us back in time to our history of some of our best artists and weaves it into today’s world with suspense and heart break. Richards does a great job bringing the history of the characters, their story and their world to life as Addison feels her way using her ability to see the history of objects as she looks for clues to stop Otto and save her family. The connection between Addison and Blake is unbreakable, proven for that matter through their past lifetimes, They are soul mates forever and you feel their love throughout the story.  The story was suspensfull and action packed. I can’t wait for book 3.

Book Review: DESERT WOLF by Heather Long



Cassius, Alpha of Sutter Butte, leads the most ruthless and dangerous pack in the United States. A pack comprised of misfits who didn’t fit in their previous packs, cast offs discarded by their packs and forgotten wolves who rose to create a pack more than a century before in utter defiance of the order of the day. Sometimes pitiless and cruel, he wants more for his people than a yearly bloodbath as they fight for a new place, a better spot in the pecking order. To change his pack, means to change himself and he will find rebellion on all sides, not the least of which is his own defiant heart.
Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent, lives a cherished, beloved life in the center of her pack, a delicate and hard won balance. Though she is not the only Omega, she is the most experienced with the tremors of pack upset when power shifts from Alpha to Alpha. When her Alpha approaches her about Sutter Butte’s request, Sovvan considers the matter for several long months. While she might hold within her the key to helping the Sutter Butte Alpha, the undertaking could very well kill her.
Accompanied by a single Hound, Sovvan begins a journey to help Cassius rebuild the foundation of his pack, but first she will have to transform him…


Sutter Butte’s Alpha, Cassius is ready for a change for his pack.  His pack is considered the most vicious pack in the United States. Cassius himself is considered the most brutal of them all.  He wants more for his people. No more yearly blood shed to fight for a better spot in his ranks.   At one time it made sense.  Times are changing but can he change too, it starts with him.  He has called upon Delta Crescents Omega for help.

Sovvan Stark, the Omega of Delta Crescent finally made the decision to help the Sutter Butte pack after several long months of contemplating.  Her own alpha did not force her or stop her. The decision was solely hers.  She knew she could help them but at who’s expense?

Sutter Butte is not ready for a change, both Cassius and Stark are met with resistance, and a lot of it.  Day one, blood shed, she fights off the pack, the very pack she is trying to help is trying to kill her. Cassius is killing any Wolf who is defying his command and trying to kill her.  Day Two……….

It was action packed from the beginning and did not stop to the end.  They story just captivated me, I felt and understood the characters. Could Cassius fight his inner demons and change to help his pack, can he stop all the blood shed?  Could Sovvan Stark help him, find her way, her place and her heart? Also let’s face it the way Ms. Long depicts the sexy alpha, Cassius who can’t resist him, I want more.  The romantic element of the story was just as captivating, it was not just about Cassius and Stark’s journey but the love of his people as well. This is my first time reading anything from Heather Long. I will definitely add her to my author to read list.

Read an Excerpt from DESERT WOLF

Heat rolled in waves from the blacktop of the old highway. Around him, the desert sprawled in its painted glory, seemingly melting into the horizon where it kissed the sky. The colors streaked past him as he accelerated, blowing past the old trading posts and bypassing the interstate with its smoother surface and promise of civilization in the distance. If one sought to journey through the decades, the old highway east of Holbrook was the place to start.

Sweat slicked his back beneath the leather jacket and the motorcycle vibrated between his thighs. Clocking over a hundred, he barely noticed the machine’s growl echoing his wolf’s. Cassius Lucera del Alba, Alpha of Sutter Butte squinted to catch sight of the town he sought ahead.

Though town was a generous description for the collection of ramshackle structures—of which a filling station with a decrepit market attached and a lone bar were clearly detailed. Time hadn’t forgotten the town, it had left it in the dust by doing a hundred and sixty and never looked back. If the location had a name, no map detailed it, not even Google. The poor bastards didn’t even have a ghost to call their own.

Though they might when he finished.

He didn’t slow until he reached the main drag, all eighty-five feet of it and parked his bike in front of the bar. A handful of vehicles were scattered amongst the cracked pavement and gravel. Three he recognized, two he didn’t. Like the bar, the cars were in sad shape and far more popular in earlier decades. Killing the engine, he dropped the kickstand and slid off his baby. Road dust coated her paint and chrome. With a stroke of his gloved hand over the seat, he promised her a bath later.

Leaving the bike, he strode toward the building. No one moved outside, but one wolf stood inside the filling station. He was a smart wolf, he’d spotted Cassius, yet didn’t reach for a phone or make any move other than retrieving his newspaper and flipping it open.

Inside, the cool air rushed over his sweaty face like a sweet kiss. The scents of stale beer, body odor, remnants of the blood spilled throughout the years, and fear stained the experience. The population of the bar—easily a dozen wolves though Cassius scented at least four more in the back—glanced up from their places scattered around the room. Three played pool, four others huddled around a card game while the rest sat in various spots including two at the bar drinking. A couple in the corner paused with her hand down his pants. The bartender—a tall, broad wolf with a balding pate and a world-weary expression raised his eyebrows in silent inquiry.

“Beer. Cold.” Cassius said, and the bartender nodded. A moment later, he set a tall bottle of Corona on the weathered bar top. The sides frosted and a hint of vapor escaped the top. Condensation formed almost immediately on the sides, slicking along the glass in rivulets.

Stripping off his fingerless gloves first. Cassius set them on the bar. Next, he peeled off his jacket. The old leather moulded him perfectly after the many years he spent wearing it. Only after setting it on the bar next to his gloves did he peel off three one hundred dollar bills and lay them next to the bottle. The bartender didn’t say a word as he took the bills, tucked them into his pocket then locked his register and exited through the double doors behind the bar.

Leaning against the aged wood, Cassius swept the room with his gaze. “If any of you are still sitting on your asses, disobeying the direct orders I sent out when I finish this beer, I’ll kill you.” He didn’t raise his voice. Shouting accomplished nothing. Yelling indicated the battle was lost before it began.

Chair legs scraping across the floor splintered the silence. The couple in the corner disengaged. The she-wolf grabbed her purse as she stood. Boots striking the floor punctuated her exodus. No sooner did the door slam shut behind her than the four wolves playing cards toss them down, abandoning their game. The men muttered, but they divvied the pot, then bowed their heads to him one at a time before hurrying out.

Tipping the bottle up, he took a long pull of the cold drink. It soothed his parched throat. One of the pool players threw down his stick. One of the wolves tried to stop him with a hand on his arm, but he shook it off. Then like the other wolves before him, he hurried out the door.

From nearly twenty to only ten—behind feet stomped on the stairs followed by another door slamming. Make that eight. One of the upstairs wolves strode into the bar, and stood in the center of it. Surprise filled his scent at the emptiness in the room. The others waited, their attention divided between Cassius and Finch.

Stupid fucking name for a wolf. Another long pull from his beer, and Cassius was three quarters finished. One by one he met the gazes of the wolves around the room. The smarter ones lowered their eyes immediately, the dumbasses fought to hold his gaze—even Finch.

Focusing on him last, Cassius studied him. Fresh beads of sweat began to trickle along Finch’s cheeks. The wolf swore, then stomped out and slammed the door with enough force, one of the hinges cracked.

Then there were seven.
