Third Time’s a Charm is a Most Charming Read

Third Time's a CharmThird Time’s a Charm

By Rose Pressey

Copyright: September 2013

Publisher: CreateSpace

Halloween LaVeau is the new leader of the Underworld, but before the ink’s dry on her business cards, a mysterious man appears, claiming the title belongs to him. Giovanni St. Clair declares he has proof that he’s the true owner of the Book of Mystics, and therefore, the leader of the Underworld.

Halloween has reason to believe that Giovanni’s motives are nothing but sinister. Not only must she defend her status as the witch in charge, but Halloween has to protect the world from a coven she inadvertently reanimates.

Sexy brothers, Liam Rankin and Nicolas Marcos, band together to help Halloween discover the stranger’s true intentions and attempt to cast the reanimated coven back to the grave where they belong.

Hallie just keeps getting in more and more trouble. How it finds her I’ll never know. Hopefully one day she’ll get a handle on her powers now that she’s the Leader of the Underworld.  Having just gotten out of one jam, Hallie is accosted by a strange man who declares that he is the real leader of the underworld and she’d better hand over the Book of Mystics or else.

Knowing that there’s no way this can be true Hallie tells him to leave her alone and heads back to her house.  In her own inimitable way Hallie decides to find a spell in the book to help her find out the truth of the matter.  As usual something goes wrong and she brings back part of the 1980’s coven from her town.  This will lead to headaches, aggravation, and more problems than ever.  Thankfully she has best friend and her protector to keep her safe.

There ensues a series of adventures you’ll just have to read to believe.  I love the series and can’t wait for book 4 to make its appearance.

Immortally Embraced is going to Keep You Enthralled

Immortally EmbracedImmortally Embraced

By Angie Fox

Copyright March 2013

Publisher: St. Martin’s

Even during a truce, Dr. Petra Robichaud has her hands full as the M*A*S*H surgeon to an army of warring gods—especially when Medusa herself turns up pregnant. Petra has no idea what to expect when a gorgon’s expecting, but she won’t let it turn her to stone. As the healer-hero of an ancient prophesy, it’s Petra’s job to keep the peace. But as the lover to a warrior demi-god, she knows how impossible some jobs can be…

Commander Galen is sexy, strong, and sworn to lead his team to hell and back. But when he announces to Petra that he can no longer risk her life for his love, the doctor is on her own…Until a mysterious new entity—in the form of a hot-blooded male—enters the picture. Can he be trusted? Can he be resisted? Meanwhile, an oracle delivers another prophesy that places Petra back on the frontlines with the man she may be bound to for eternity—in love, or in war…

This is definitely NOT your TV M.A.S.H. program… This is the MASH from hell (even if it is only limbo) … Like the roach motels on TV, once you get drafted in, you can’t get out.  Our favorite MASH doc has her hands full even during a a truce…  Petra has to do her job and still keep her secrets unexposed.

In the middle of all this her boyfriend Galen breaks up with her, the Oracle comes out with another prediction, and she gets caught up with  having to work with someone from the other side in order to work on her new anesthesia.  Things are going to be moving at a fast pace and you the reader is going to be glued to your chair until you’ve finished this book, and started looking for more, But it won’t be there.  Siiiiigh.

FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book as a gift from the author, who only requested a fair review.

Lexi George Has Struck Gold Again!

Demon Hunting in a Dive BarDemon Hunting in a Dive Bar

By Lexi George

Copyright February 2013

Publisher: Brava

 

Rebekah “Beck” Damian runs a demonoid bar where everyone’s welcome—even a reformed flesheater who’s strictly vegetarian, a musical ghost who’s looking for a piano bar, and a feline harbinger of doom named Wampus Kitty who’s scaring the customers. So when a big strapping demon-hunter walks into the bar, Beck knows it’s not the end of the world. She’ll treat him like any other customer.

If only she could. Conall Dalvahni is the toughest, meanest, sexiest demon-hunter Beck’s ever seen—and she’s finding it hard to hide her attraction. As far as Conall’s concerned, the feeling is mutual. But how can he trust a beautiful half-demon babe like Beck—when her demonic friends have the perfect weapon to destroy every hunter on earth?

 

This is the third book in the Demon Hunting Series.  Each one showcases another member of the Dalvahni “brother’s” lives and adventures in our dimension.  Beck Damian is the owner and manager of a demonoid bar.

Connall Dalvahni has been hanging out at Beck’s place trying to decide whether he should destroy her or not since she is half demon.  She puzzles the hell out of him because she doesn’t “smell” like a demon.  As the story unfolds Beck is employing a number of new people in the place.  She takes in a Vegetarian Zombie and a ghostly piano player.  Connall decides that she is the one he needs to help stop a major incursion by demon’s who have a new weapon to destroy him and his brothers.  The sparks fly, not only in battle but between Beck and Connall.

Lexi George has struck again. This third book in her Demon Hunting series is the most mind boggling one to date.  I’ve been totally drawn into the action and intrigue of this series right from the beginning… I started because the title of the book was so unusual and catchy, and stayed for the fighting, the romance, and the action.   I think you will also.

Immortally Yours is a M.A.S.H. Hit!

Immortally Yours

By: Angie Fox

Copyright September 2012

Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperback

IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE GODS…  

No one patches up the incoming wounded like Dr. Petra Robichaud. Recruited by the gods for her uncanny medical skills, she’s the best M*A*S*H surgeon in the army. Along with a nosy guard sphinx,vegetarian werewolf, and otherparanormal paramedics, she bandages soldiers who are built like Greek gods (literally). But when one sexy immortal ends up on her operating table—half dead and totally to-die-for—Petra’s afraid she’ll lose her patient and her heart…

NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS THAN LOVE

Commander Galen of Delphi is one gorgeous but stubborn demi-god. When his spirit tries to slip out of his fatally wounded body, Dr. Petra has to slip it back in—unwittingly revealing her ability to see ghosts. Now that Galen knows her secret, he’s convinced she’s part of an ancient prophecy. If the oracles are right, Petra could lead Galen’s army to peace. And if he seduces her on the way to hell and back? Heaven knows—all’s fair in love and war…

 

There isn’t much you can say about a book like this one. So I’m going to keep my comments mercifully short.

Angie Fox has done the impossible! She’s out M.A.S.H.’d the original M.A.S.H.. Wherever they are, Richard Hooker and William E. Butterworth are giving her a standing ovation. Immotally Your’s is a Paranormal Tour de Force. The characters will leave you rolling in laughter and if you’re not careful you’ll need a change of undies also.

FTC Full Disclosure: I won this book in a contest and received a signed copy from the author.

Eternity’s Mark is a Classic Winner

Eternity’s Mark

By Maeve Greyson

Copyright March 2012

Publisher Brava Paranormal Romance

 

Sacred blood flows in Hannah MacPherson’s veins; she’s just too hardheaded to realize it. After losing a husband to the Iraq war, she’s squirreled herself away in a tiny town where she snarls at any man who gives her a second glance. But Taggart de Gaelson knows more about Hannah than she could ever fathom. As her assigned protector, Taggart’s grown tired of Hannah ignoring his messages from Scotland—and now he’s come to retrieve her. 

The balance of the Continuum depends on a race of sacred creatures who maintain the strength of the portals. Only Hannah’s touch can release the hatchlings from their eggs. Sworn to protect Hannah from others who lust for control of the beasts, Taggart must win her trust. But as he battles at her side, can he protect his heart?

 

Hannah MacPherson is a veterinarian in her hometown of Jasper Mills.  She lives a quiet life taking care of her neighbors’ pets, and farm animals.  In return they take care of her.  The whole town had a hand in raising her after her mother and grandmother died so her life is pretty placid.  Of course there’s the family gift, her ability to understand the animals around her and communicate with them in return.

Her current problem is the trickster who keeps moving her car and parking it at fire plugs in the Town Square causing her to receive an inordinate amount of tickets from the town’s Sheriff.  The fact that he leaves cutesy little notes on them is not endearing him to her either.  Today she is going to find out who the culprit or culprits are.  She’s set up a camera overlooking the town and will photograph the jokester once and for all.

Meanwhile across the world in Scotland a man Hannah has never met or heard of is getting more and more annoyed with her.  Taggart de Gaelson has been sending her letter after letter trying to contact her about an inheritance that would change her life.  It seems she is the last living heir to a castle and a large area of land.  Taggart is forced to travel to the US to find her and convince her to visit Scotland and her inheritance.

This book has all the makings of a classic romance and adventure. Hannah our unsuspecting heroine will have to dig deep and learn to use all the skills and gifts that are her true family inheritance.  She will face challenges she never dreamed of, and face long hidden truths.

When I first read the blurb for this book I knew that it was a story that I had to read and share with the world.  I was drawn deeply into the heart of the characters, and found myself looking out of Hannah’s eyes through most of it.  My summation of the book is this: Outstanding, Romantic, Scottish Castles, Dragons and Maidens. Who could ask for more?
