Rachel Lacey is coming out with a brand new series, “Stranded”, with “Crash And Burn” leading the series as Isa Delgado and Nate Peters are stranded in the wilderness with danger and flames chasing them.

CrashAndBurn-Stranded#1-RacheclLacey-Sept2017

Working as a volunteer, Isa Delgado agrees to kill two birds with one stone; accompany a dog to its adopted home and get over her fear of flying. Silicon Valley billionaire Nate Peters volunteers his time and jet for animal rescue missions and having Isa, as his co-traveller is an added perk. But then as fate has it and Isa’s worst nightmare come true, her first flight ends in a crash in the wilderness as forest fires rage around them, and it becomes a race against time as to who is going to win the fiery battle.

A different path for Rachel Lacey from her contemporary romances, “Crash And Burn” sure brings out her creative side as she explores the wilderness romance, survival and developing a relationship between Isa and Nate with no supporting characters or sub-plots. She sure does a good job and if you’ve read her previous books, you’ll definitely relate to the change in her writing and narration, and she keeps it interesting and captivating.

“Crash And Burn” comes out on September 15, 2017

Brenda Novak has set her bar pretty high with “This Heart Of Mine”, which happens to be my super top favorite story of hers…and will remain so forever. Having said that she has introduced us to the Silver Spring series and The New Horizons Boys Ranch in the first book of the series, “Finding Our Forever”, another emotional and engrossing series, and the second book in the series, “No One But You”, will take you on another ride of forgiveness and love, with Dawson Reed and Sadie Harris at the center of this heartwarming love story.

NoOneButYou-SilverSprings#2-BrendaNovak

Having being acquitted of murdering his foster parents, all Dawson Reed wants is to build his farm, bring his special needs sister back home and live a quite life, away from the judgmental eyes of the Silver Springs townsfolk. Easier said than done, when he hires Sadie Harris to be a caretaker and housekeeper for her sister.

Trying to finalize her divorce with her abusive cop husband, Sadie Harris needs is a decent job to get keep custody of her son, and be independent and build a steady life with her son. Accepting a job as Dawson’s housekeeper has the town gossiping and her abusive ex becoming dangerous and evil.

It started a bit slow for me, but once the story got into the thick of things, the plot moved with great strides. Another wonderful story by Brenda Novak, of two people who find love amidst danger and gossip, who care for each other and courageous enough to defy threats and go to any lengths to keep each other out of harm’s way. This story questions our morals and opinions about life changing incidents, about giving people second chances, of being influenced by power and judgments, and of forgiveness and love.

A story that needs to be read to fully enjoy it’s content. And when Elijah, Gavin and Aiyana make an appearance that is just the sweetest icing on the cake!

I always enjoy reading Lori Foster! There’s something so very charming and captivating about her heroes and heroines, interesting plots and the crossover/spin off series are always my favorite.

UnderPressure-BodyArmor#1-LoriFoster

Her latest series, “Body Armor” and I’m late getting to this series, is just as absorbing and delightful as her other stories. First in the series, “Under Pressure” has ex-MMA fighter Leese Phelps fighting to save his heart. After a rough past, he has managed to get to a point of respectability and make a good life as a bodyguard with Body Armor. And it looks like nothing can protect him from the sassy and on the run Catalina Nicholson.

With secrets that threaten to kill her, Catalina runs right into Leese as he saves her from being kidnapped. Never mind that Body Armor was hired to keep her safe, but as the truth comes out, it looks like Leese is going to keep Cat under lock and key literally and with proximity those sparks of attraction seem to ignite Leese and Cat.

I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. I loved how she brings in the characters from her previous series and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them. A definite good read for me.

“Saved By Darkness” book six in Katie Reus’s Darkness series is just as fiery as the love that Ian McCabe had been cheated of, decades ago. Held prisoner and blackmailed into leaving Ian and to protect him decades ago, Fiona O’Riley finally breaks ties with a family that betrayed her and makes a life on the outskirts of the Stravos pack, unknown to Ian.

Half-demon half shifter, Ian McCabe will go to the end of the realm to keep Fiona safe and alive. And someone with an evil plan is killing humans to rule the world and he’ll do his duty of protecting the innocent along with the Stravos pack. Fiona only loved one and that is Ian. She’ll defy everything to be with him even if her days are numbered. She’ll protect Ian until her last breath and will stand against the evil that’s tearing up the world.

“Saved By Darkness” has so much action that keeps the readers on the edge of their seats as the good fight against the evil. Fiona and Ian make a formidable pair as they finally get together to fight against the very people that they share their own blood.

Katie Reus is one brilliant writer of paranormal and all her books are just fabulous reads. It’s always a pleasure as the previous characters make an appearance, as one clan, supporting each other, looking out for each other, within the boundaries of their clans, yet protecting the innocent.

If anyone hasn’t read Erin Nicholas, now would be a super fabulous start to getting to know a writer with a wicked sense of humor, tantalizing penmanship, sinful fantasies and down to earth characters that stay with you for repeat readings!
