FAITH HUNTER'S "BLACK ARTS" NEXT BOOK IN THE JANE YELLOWROCK SERIES!!! 5 STARS!!!!

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own —no matter the cost....

When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace.

Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

************************************

In the newest Jane Yellowrock series book Faith Hunter really weaves quite the web but she unravels it beautifully.  I really fancy this series and find myself looking forward to each new book.

Jane is trying to get back on her feet after everything she went through in the last book.  In this one Molly's husband shows up at her house getting his scare on wanting his wife to come out but Jane hasn't seen her.  So her mission becomes "find Molly". If that wasn't enough she is informed by the boss Vamp that she needs to hype up security for a big shing-dig.  Losts of mystery and fighting ensues.

Love it!  Full of action and mystery!  You will really enjoy this book!  5 STARS!

Need help clearing your home of spirits/ghosts? I got the book to help you!

When it comes to spooks, specters, and things that go bump in the night, knowledge is power and fear is the enemy. How to Clear Your Home of Ghosts & Spirits is a guide to everything you need to know about how to get rid of ghosts. Paranormal researcher Debi Chestnut provides a brief history of ghosts, and describes the types of ghosts, the different kinds of haunting, the reasons ghosts haunt, and tips and techniques for clearing them.
Also discussed are important topics such as how ghosts and spirits can be brought into the home accidentally, activities to avoid so as not to invite ghosts, and information on when and how to choose a paranormal team for extreme cases. Written in a no-nonsense style by an author with years of experience, this guide is a must-have for those who prefer to live with the facts instead of living in fear.

***************************************************

While browsing books to read and review I came across this book and thought to myself "That looks like an interesting read"  I was certainly right.  I enjoyed this book immensely.  It's like watching some of my favorite TV shows "Ghost Hunters or Ghost Adventures"  while entertaining it's also very informative.

I do believe in ghosts and spirits and I feel this book would be a good resource to others who also believe and are having problems with them in their home.  If you are then I highly recommend you purchase and read this book.

5 STARS!

Review for "Kiss Me on This Cold December Night" by Charlotte Phillips

The third novella in Charlotte Phillips’ deliciously sensual Do Not Disturb series.
Christmas in London – a time for late night shopping on Regent’s Street or ice skating at Somerset House under a blanket of twinkling fairy lights, the warming, welcoming aroma of mulled wine in the air…

Or, alternatively, a time for bumping into the ghosts of one night stands past in Ella Scott’s case!

Checking into her boutique hotel for a weekend of Christmas shopping, the last person Ella expects to bump into at reception is Tom bloody Henley – ambitious doctor, highly eligible bachelor and with whom she had the most unbelievable, mind-blowing brief encounter five Christmases ago.

But Ella slipped out quietly the morning after all those years ago for a reason and although Tom’s got a look on his face that suggests Christmas has come early, there’s no way she’s going to be repeating past mistakes… right?

***************************************

Unfortunately.... This was not one of my favorite reads this year.  I'll admit there was lots of romance and hot scenes but no substance to back it up.

Ella gets invited to enjoy a trip with a friend that doesn't show up due to a storm and Tom gets stuck in the city due to the same weather.  They had met before and the encounter remains with them.  Tom is determined for them to become reacquainted

This story reminds me of jumping into a puddle with both feet.  There's no real beginning to get you ready for the story or characters.  Then when you get to the middle of the story there's not much of a climax.  The only redeeming feature of the story is the love scenes.

If your looking for an easy read I'd recommend this.  I give this book 3 Stars!

Review for Sweet Revenge by Rebecca Zanetti



The One Man She Can't Have
Matt Dean was born to fight . . . and kill. A member of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be the perfect soldiers with an expiration date. Now, with time running out, he's gone rogue in a relentless quest for the one person who can save them. His mission leads him to Charmed, Idaho . . . and to a beautiful woman with eyes like emeralds and a body made for pleasure.

The One Woman He Can't Resist

Laney Jacobs knows the mysterious, handsome stranger is trouble from the moment he walks into her bar, looking for a job. She's spent years running from her own past-the last thing she needs is a romantic entanglement. But Matt's strong arms offer her protection and his gentle touch promises passion unlike anything she's ever known. As lethal forces surround them, revealing explosive secrets about Matt's past and putting everything-and everyone-he holds dear in danger, can he save them all before time runs out?

*************************************************

Awesome!!!!  This book had it all! Lots of romance, action, deception and romance.  I'd have no problem placing a bow on this book and giving it to my pals for a present.

Matt Dean is Hot and Deadly!  Black Op military specialist he's trying to find the Doctor that implanted him and his team with devices that could end their lives.  It's a fight against time and people who have the financing to do pretty much anything to stop them.

Laney Jacobs seems to be a woman of contradictions.  Almost like she has split personalities.  She's hiding and does not want to be found, if she is only bad things can come from it.

I can see this book being the beginning of a wonderful series but I think it may be stand alone.  Either way it's an awesome book and it's worth reading!

5 Stars!!!!!!!!

Review for "Santa Wore Leathers" by Vonnie Davis 5 Stars!!!


Take one man-shy reporter, a gorgeous ex-Navy SEAL turned firefighter, add in a thong-stealing dog… and Christmas will never be the same again!
There’s only one thing on Becca Sinclair’s Christmas list this holiday season – her very own column in the local paper. And if she can build a huge blog following, her wish just might come true.

Enter Dan ‘Wolf’ Wolford aka the man-whore next door and the new star of Becca’s popular, post-divorce blog about men. A Navy SEAL turned commander of the Florida Marine Rescue Unit, Wolf’s the very definition of the word alpha – and with an endless rotation of women on his doorstep, this hunk on a Harley has Becca and her female followers all hot and bothered!

All Becca wants for Christmas is her newspaper column, right? But when she finds herself the target of Wolf’s irresistible attentions, her snarky comebacks become less and less convincing and, suddenly, she’s not so sure anymore…

**********************************************************************************

This book was hilarious!  I really enjoyed this read.  This was a fun holiday read.  I read parts of it to co-workers and we were in stitches.

Becca is a journalist who has been hurt by past relationships and is gun shy when it come to dating.  The poor woman just wants to get on with her life but her dog has other ideas.  The dog includes neighbor "Wolf" in the havoc he is causing. Wolf is an ex-navy seal turned fire fighter who is as hot as the fires he puts out.  Becca tries to resist but the dog won't leave it be.

If you enjoy a fun and hilariously holiday read then this book is for you!

5 STARS!!!!!

Review od "Race To Kill" by Rachel Kall





When fiercely independent Vivian Reese is thrust onto the national stage during a heated presidential campaign, she doesn't expect to become a media darling. She also doesn't expect to start to fall for her sexy new bodyguard, Marcus Locke. But when threats start surfacing against the sitting President's campaign and all evidence points to Vivian, she doesn't know who to trust. Delta Force Operator turned FBI agent Marcus Locke is supposed to be investigating campaign finance crimes. He's not supposed to be checking out the sexy, eloquent campaign spokeswoman Vivian Reese, who's one of his prime suspects! But when they are caught in the middle of a presidential race that is quickly turning deadly, he is forced to put both his heart and his job in the line of fire. Tempers flare and passions ignite as the campaign gets dangerous, but when bullets start to fly will either of them survive?

************************************************************

This was a good book, a little easy to predict but good just the same.

Vivian works for a politician that is running for President and is requested to cover media interviews for him to drum up the votes.  She begins getting letters from a stalker, a bodyguard is hired to keep her safe.

Marcus is the new bodyguard and he really likes Vivian who is prim and proper but has no problem standing up to him.

I enjoyed the storyline and it had good flow but as I said it was pretty easy to determine what would happen next.  If you enjoy political suspense with romance this is a good one for you.

4 Stars!!!!
