There’s something very addictive and seductive about Susan Stoker’s various series of courageous and brave soldiers, their fight for justice and the fierce protectiveness of their loved ones.

“Claiming Felicity” book four in the Ace Security Series is another exemplary work of Susan Stoker’s creative writing as she brings the surprising secretive half brother to the Andersons brothers, a twist to their family dynamics.

Ryan Sinclair comes to Castle Rock, CO, after the discovery of the half-brothers he never knew about. Wanting to know his newfound family, and leaving his mercenary life behind, Ryder is more than ready to plant roots and with Felicity Jones.

Feeling from a dangerous past, Castle Rock was supposed to be a temporary stop for Felicity Jones. But the Anderson family has tied her strong to family and friendship, and leaving was becoming a far fetched idea until the past catches up with her and lands her family and friends in danger.

But Ryder and the Anderson brothers will protect their own and will do anything to keep Felicity safe. With Ryder as her self appointed bodyguard and with sparks of attraction fanning between them, and passion igniting the sheets, Ryder will do anything to protect and keep Felicity in Castle Rock for a future with her.

“Claiming Felicity” is another courageous story of a woman trying to defeat her past for a future with the man she loves. A wonderful story of family and friendship, support and care, brotherhood and kinship, Susan Stoker gives her readers another captivating thriller.

Susan Stoker is one fine writer that I was glad to have come upon and enjoyed reading her stories. From her Badge Of Honor Series, Delta Force Heroes Series to Seal Of Protection Series and now to Ace Security series, I’ve literally enjoyed every single one of her books. Protecting Caroline, Protecting Fiona and Protecting Alabama are my top favorites of her books that I’ve visited innumerable times…chicken soup for the soul!!!

Kendra Eliot’s new “Mercy Kilpatrick” series continues with the latest release, “A Merciful Secret”, as Police Chief Truman Daly and Mercy Kilpatrick cruise into a relationship, taking care of her niece and slowly easing into mending fences with her family.

But then there’s never a day off for the law enforcement, as Mercy becomes a key witness in the murder of a little girl’s grandmother. With a similar related murder of a renowned judge, Mercy gets drawn into age-old secrets of the past of her hometown, and the consequences that follow the next generation.

“A Merciful Secret” is an intriguing and emotional story of a mother and daughter surviving a past that wants to kill them, a story riddled with secrets that tears a family apart, and a story that devastates Mercy’s very life and soul.

Keeping the dynamics of the Kilpatrick family in light, Kendra Elliot weaves another intense story of secrets and betrayal, pain and loss, death and devastation, even as she strengthens the relationship between Truman and Kilpatrick. I’ve always loved her prowess of developing a personal relationship, layer-by-layer, book-by-book

The Westerlys sure are heating up the pages with their love and romance as they try to find their place as well as their future partners. I’ve always loved reading series featuring siblings, matchmaking elders, and families going through rough times despite being billionaires just showing that they are human as well.

UpForHeir-WesterlyBillionaires#2-RuthCardello-Nov2017

The new series by Ruth Cardello, “The Westerly Billionaires” is exactly that and book two of the Westerly Heirs, “Up For Heir”, is just as enticing and charming. Self made billionaire and with lots of family secrets, Spencer Westerly is caught up in his work more, than playing to the fall-outs within his family. But then his grandmother is not one to give up, and with some help and manipulation comes Hailey Tiverton, the one and only woman Spencer had ever loved.

Life threw a curve ball in the young teenagers lives, breaking up Spencer and Hailey. Now Hailey is the guardian of her niece and circumstances bring her as the companion for Spencer’s grandmother. And the stage is well set for both these estranged lovebirds to put to rest the past and create a future.

Along with the siblings finding the love of their lives Ruth Cardello pays special attention to the chemistry among the family members as they try to mend broken relations, pain and betrayal. “Up For Heir” is another great read as the Westerly Billionaires steal our hearts.

Continuing with the Rogue Justice novellas, Kendra Elliot brings closer to the unsolved and “Twisted Truth” (Melinda Leigh) in the final book “Truth Be Told”. Stevie and Zane are brought into the crosshairs of the case when the little boy and his uncle disappear and two FBI agents are killed.

“Truth Be Told” is the ending and the final book of the Rogue Series co-written by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. It is always a treat to read more of the couples that have caught our attention in this gripping and intriguing blend of Rogue stories. Along with keeping the justice upright, getting to see the progression of Stevie and Zane’s relationship as a couple is always worth the reading.

The Rogue Series is a great start for any reading buffs wanting to test new authors. Two authors who have honed their writing skills to amazing heights of intriguing plots, twisted villains and courageous characters.

It’s wonderful to re-visit the little town of Solitude, and visit with Seth Harding and his wife Carly, but then death and evil never rest and so neither does Seth and his team and Carly.

TwistedTruth-RogueJusticeNovella#1-MelindaLeigh-Nov2017

Responding to a double homicide and finding a child chained in the basement is not something Seth was looking forward to. More than ever, bringing Carly in to help with the child is just as painful, with Carly recovering from a trauma. But justice never rests, and where a child is involved, Carly will move heaven and earth to protect the child and get to the bottom of the deaths of two who are not even the child’s parents. As the case becomes complex, so does the danger surrounding their family and team. With death shooting bullets at them, Seth and Carly have to work together to outwit death and save their family.

Another adrenaline pumping short novella, entwining an intriguing plots along with Seth and Carly’s new life, their daughter, mother and their farm. It’s nice to see the after of Seth’s and Carly’s fragile relationship and the inroads they have made after reconciling, and reading about the supporting casts, always makes it extra special.

“Twisted Truth” is book one of the Rogue Justice Novellas, and co-written by Melinda Leigh (Book #1) and Book #2 will follow written by Kendra Elliot. Brilliant at what she does best, writing romantic suspense keeping her readers enthralled, Melinda Leigh pens another thrilling story around Seth and Carly.
