This Halloween, Grace gets a wonderful trick from her , Toffer. Taking the night off to spend some time with Grace, Toffer gives her a task to do in minutes. Depending on how well she does her task, she can earn a treat or get a trick. Yet Grace knows that his tricks are as good as his treats. Hopefully Grace and Toffer will be having a great time this Halloween night.
 
Grace and Toffer are a great couple. Graceful Mischief  lets us in on one of the adventures of the characters Toffer and Grace that were introduced in the book Graceful submission.  The bond that these two have shines throughout the story. I enjoyed the love you can see they have for one another.
 
Graceful Mischief is a story that had me right from the start. I loved that Grace is a full-figured woman who has the love of a good man.  The confidence he helps instill in her makes for a great read. Melinda Barron has built a wonderful world with Grace and Toffer, and I cannot wait to see if we get to read more of their adventures.

Author's Demise by Franny Armstrong



Title: Author’s Demise
Author: Franny Armstrong
Publisher: Red Rose Publishing

“The CEO of Brinkman-Bonnette Publishing, Lana Anderson, is a psychic with telekinetic abilities. When her emotions run out of control she blows up electronics and makes dishes fly or smash into pieces. With a serial killer out to get her, she finds her family, friends, authors and staff members in grave danger and sets out to stop them at all costs.
Undercover cop, Brett Colton, is hired by the Lana's boss to protect her. Doing his best to elude a tail, Brett sees a stunningly beautiful woman waiting for an elevator and uses her to hide in plain sight, capturing her lips in a passionate kiss. It turns out that she's his client and he's able to read her mind, dogging her every step as he fights to keep her safe.
They lose their hearts to each other while trying to figure out who among her staff members is the true killer. When Lana is kidnapped, Brett rushes to save her, praying that he'll be in time to stop the killer from acting out the scene from a novel that twisted the mind of a child and created the ultimate murderer.”

This book was good but it ran a little long for me. I really enjoyed the premise and was interested by the story line but a good chunk of the middle was unnecessary and made the story drag. The tension came back at the end when the story was wrapping up though so that made up for it. I liked both of the main characters but since the story dragged on I felt like a lot of their conversations/actions, became a little repetitive. Also, this might have just been a formatting issue, but this story had really short scenes that became really annoying and pulled me away from the story. Lana’s ability was an interesting addition to this story and added a lot of humor to this piece. I found Brett’s ability to read Lana’s mind a little odd because of it was limited to her and it was an unprecedented ability. Still they made a very sweet couple and were fun to read. I gave this book 3.5 diamonds because it was good read but it could have been better.

Kate and Jake are up for a little fun this Halloween. When they meet up at the costume party they find Jeremy who is more than ready to play.
 
This story is another adventure for these two characters from the book Once a Thief.  Jake and Kate enjoy a Dom and sub relationship. Although Jake is a bit too arrogant for me it was nice to see how trusting and knowing they were of each other even when they bring in another person into the picture.
 
With an interesting twist in the end Three’s Not A Crowd is a fast paced read that brings a new feel to costume parties. Making you wonder just what other people are hiding under their costumes at the next party that you attend.

Aimee is not happy when she has a break in at her house and her sister insists that Hawkeye send an agent to her house to be her bodyguard. Trace Romero is none to happy either. He would rather be on assignment somewhere in the jungles but when he meets Aimee he finds a feisty woman who may just have the same interests as he does.
 
Hawkeye Two: Bend Me over had me intrigued right from the start. Trace is a wonderful Dom who has just found himself a perfect submissive but he must convince her first. Aimee is a smart woman who decides to take a chance on happiness and blossoms under Trace’s love. The two find a great balance and play off of each other very nicely. Watching their relationship grow was a nice read. I just loved the banter that these two share and I adored the escapades of Aimee’s parrot and Trace.
 
Sierra Cartwright does a wonderful job of keeping the reader entertained from start to finish. With characters full of emotion and depth this is a book that should not be missed and it is a great addition to this series.

Evangaline can’t be classified as a ‘nice witch’ and she’s good with that. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t have needs though and when she meets a sexy shifter, even though he pisses her off, he also hits all the right buttons. Ryker is used to females running like hell when he comes around. He’s big, blunt and probably could be more charming, but he doesn’t see a need. When the two are tossed together to do security work, the chemistry explodes. But for Ryker, the attraction is much more than sex, and Evangaline is just going to have to deal with that…or kill him.

I loved Wickedest Witch. Ryker and Evangaline are a great pair and I was cheering for them from the second they met, though I swear Evangaline was giving me dirty looks as I pulled out my pom poms. The supporting characters were so rich and wonderful that they helped push the story past sexy short into something so much more fun. Any paranormal romance lover looking for something a little different will find it in Wickedest Witch and they won’t be disappointed.

“Institutionalized at a young age after the breakup of her parents, Ella’s always heard voices. Even worse, the voices in her head like to act. She thinks she’s crazy and destined to be a patient for life until the night she meets a vampire and for the first time in her life, the voices shut up.

Zane just wants to enjoy his usual blood buffet, instead he runs into a wisp of a woman who makes him feel emotions he thought long dead. Rescuing her from the insane asylum, he brings her home, determined to assuage his lust; a plan that is foiled by ghostly voices more determined to keep her pure than a steel welded chastity belt.

Together they discover Ella might not be as crazy as everyone thinks, but even as they discover her innate power, someone from her past wants to hurt her. Will crazy and undead prevail against covetous evil? And most important of all, will the voices ever allow them to indulge in the desire that consumes them?”

I was pleasantly surprised by this story. The plot is unbelievably unique and interesting, and the characters have great personality. Zane and Ella are incredibly sweet together, and I especially love the way Zane does little things for Ella who has never really experienced life. The only thing that disappointed me about this story was its length. There were several plot points that could have been expanded upon to deepen the story, and some grammar issues were distracting. Overall this is a really good story, and worth a read.



Vermillion by Kathleen Scott

Kristabelle has a special power. It allows her to take souls from people and put them into glass. It’s something she never used until a dark order takes over her town and she is forced to do their bidding for the safety of her family. Darius is playing a part, infiltrating the dark order with hopes of destroying it before it spreads. The two are pawns, working for different masters, yet both desire the same thing, for the darkness to end and for the peace they both long for to return. Turning to each other for comfort quickly becomes more and Darius knows he must help Kristabelle, but both know they are both just one wrong move away from exposing the truths about themselves and destroying them both.
Vermillion offers a very different look at the past. I think we all have ideas about how hard life was in the 1500’s but this story really brings the hardships and small joys out along with the amazing magic Ms Scott weaves. For those who enjoy the long passed time period stories, this is a good one filled with intrigue, romance, lust and suspense.

Hell never looked so good. 
                               
Reality television is the newest battleground for God and Satan. Caught in the middle is Kate Thomas, an ordinary woman stuck between flaming Archangels and scorching hot War demons. When her heart is captured by Demon Michael, Kate has to face the hardest choice any woman can make: the fate of her soul versus the future of her heart.”

What a wild ride this book was, from start to finish this is a book I couldn’t put down. The Battle is on for Limbo and with Hell filling up fast they need the space, but Heaven isn’t too please that hell is so popular and is running out of room when they have plenty.

So thus they choose to fight for it on reality TV then in the middle of it all Kate Thomas a no body from no where, a simple human gets pulled into and she has to fight for Limbo for Team Human all the while dealing with characters who can not deal with earth on their own.

Kate is loveable and the kind of Heroine I love to read, she is strong and ‘HUMAN’, meaning she makes mistakes and she isn’t perfect. And Michael is a demon with a heart, and a habit of throwing people, but then no one is perfect.

I recommend the book very highly. So it is with pleasure I give it 5 diamonds.  I can not wait to read more novels by Ms Green.

Christina Welch is a bored school librarian facing a long, empty summer. But she has fantasies and longings, particularly about her son’s baseball coach. She has avoided encouraging his advances, worried about her desires, but a chance meeting that quickly unleashes her hottest needs just might change her world.

Bryce Walker isn’t looking forward to a long, hot summer alone. He lusts after the librarian, but he has resisted going after her out of respect for her being a single mother. Still, he wants her and he suspects she wants him. But will his interest in giving sensual pain and pleasure scare her away?

This is another well written story by Tess Lamont. I enjoyed watching the emotional struggle between the characters become hotter with the growth of their interest in one another. Keep a fan handy as you read this second book in the South Jersey Heat Wave Series.
