First Look: Emmy Curtis’ Aces Wild (May 2, 2017)

Aces Wild by Emmy Curtis

Emmy Curtis
Aces Wild (Elite Ops #1)
Forever Yours / April 30, 2017 / $19.99 print, $3.99 digital

One thing 1986’s Top Gun proved to us is that we love smug, hot shot, Air Force pilots and we simply can’t get enough of their phenomenal acrobatics.  Emmy Curtis’s new Elite Ops series starts with Aces Wild and she takes us to the Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada for this year’s Red Flag exercises. These exercises help train NATO pilots in advance aerial combat by simulating combat situations. 

As the pilots and their crews arrive, representing the various nations, they believe this year will be just like every other year teaming the various fleets against the Aggressor Squadron made up of an elite team of pilots.   Securing an invitation to perform in these topflight training games is already impressive, but standing out as an exceptional pilot is something which both Royal Air Force pilot Dexter Stone and U.S.A.F. Major Eleanor Daniels are counting on since both their futures might just be riding on how well they perform in these games.

First Look: Elle Kennedy’s Midnight Target (April 25, 2017)

Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy

Elle Kennedy
Midnight Target (Killer Instincts #8)
Berkley / April 25, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

In her final book of the Killer Instinct series, Elle Kennedy gives us a novel so full of danger and heart-pounding excitement that I would recommend making sure you can finish it once you start because putting it down is not an option.

Cate Morgan is in a South American city which is on the verge of implosion.  She saw something she shouldn’t and gets caught in the cross hairs of one of the bloodiest cartels. Jim Morgan takes his team in to bring his daughter home and as shots are fired between the mercs and the drug lords, lives are lost and the hatred and retaliation grows as both sides refuse to stop until the other is destroyed.  

As this series draws to an end, Elle Kennedy brings us not one romance but two in Midnight Target. The last few books have left us panting for the resolution of these problematic romances and in doing so she also makes us pause and question how often we live our lives making decisions to please others rather than ourselves.

First Look: Kerrelyn Sparks’ How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (March 7, 2017)

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

Kerrelyn Sparks
How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (Embraced Series #1)
St. Martin's Press / March 7, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

Fans of Kerrelyn Sparks who have been mourning the loss of Ms. Sparks’ literary wit for the last year can finally rejoice.  In the same style as The Princess Bride, Kerrelyn has created an entire new world for us to savor with all of the marvelous characters and sparkling humor we have come to expect.

She has created a world where the night sky shines with the light of twin moons.  Here there are five kingdoms and the four that share borders are constantly at war.   But no matter which kingdom you hail from, any children born on a night where the two moons are intertwined in the sky are born Embraced.  Those who are Embraced are born with a special ability and are much feared in all the kingdoms.  How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days gives us our first introduction to those who are Embraced. 

The current King of Eberon is so greedy to own all the land in his Kingdom that he sets nearly impossible goals for this Lords and failure to succeed at the King’s demand can be a death sentence for you and your family.  And his demands on his own family is even harsher.  Leofric of Benwick is the Lord Proctor of the Realm tasked with keeping their enemies from crossing the borders.   Leo knows that he was given this position since the King hopes that Leo will be killed in a skirmish with their enemies which is a much simpler way to get rid of a possible successor to his throne then simply killing Leo outright.  Not that he could kill Leo in a fair fight.

Every Little Thing by Samantha Young

Samantha Young
Every Little Thing (Hart's Boardwalk #2)
Berkley / March 7, 2017 / $15.00 print, $5.99 digital

Enemies to lovers is one of the most electric tropes in romance.  There are no two people on the planet who are trying their utmost not to fall in love.  But never have two E2L’s wanted a round of hot, angry sex more desperately than in Samantha Young’s newest novel, Every Little Thing.

Bailey Hartwell, owner of the quaint bed and breakfast, didn’t believe there was any place on the boardwalk for the slick hotel and conference center that NYC hotelier, Vaughn Tremaine, was planning on putting up.  So for three years she has been the antagonistic thorn in his side.  First, she tried to keep the City Council from approving his plans.  Then as the building went up and it wasn’t the eyesore she feared, Bailey kept provoking him mostly out of the desire to keep the handsome and charming man from her thoughts, especially when he never chose never to be nice to her.

First Look: Kresley Cole’s Shadow’s Seduction (February 28, 2017)

Shadow's Seduction by Kresley Cole

NOTE:  A re-read of Shadow’s Claim is recommended and would help put all the background of this story and the characters fresh in your mind.

Kresley Cole breaks new ground in her Dacian/Immortals After Dark series by writing her first male/male romance, and just like all of her previous stories, she knows how to keep our anticipation high until we are all but crying for their HEA.  I don’t normally reach for a m/m romance, but as a longtime Kresley Cole fan, I had to see how she would deal with this new dynamic.  For those who hesitate to give it a try, I can only say that KC doesn’t disappoint in bringing both the sweet and the sexy to this new exotic pairing.

In the IAD/Dacian world of the Lore, these immortals sometimes spend centuries waiting to find their fated mates. Time and again, we have watched the males search for their females, and try to convince her that they are meant to be.   Demons search for their Lovers, while vampires search for their Brides. Can two males of different species accept their unusual pairing and find the same bond we have come to expect?

Shadow’s Seduction begins just as natural-born vampire Prince Mirceo Daciano is about to turn thirty and be frozen in his immortality.  He will lose his heartbeat and his ability to have sex until his body is reawakened by his fated mate.  But until that time, Mirceo plans to indulge all his hedonistic desires. He has been at the New Rome Pleasure Palace for hours (days? weeks?) indulging in pleasures of the flesh with males and females alike, but never the same partner. His time for pleasures is growing too short to repeat a performance not when there are new delights to be sampled.

Are J.D. Robb’s Eve and Roarke the Best Couple in Romance?

Why Eve and Roarke deserve to win the title of 2017's Swoonworthiest Couple!

We're almost to the end of the Swoonies 2017 as our final round is prepared to launch on Monday. In honor of our EPIC Couples Battle, The Swoonies, we asked two of our bloggers to make their case for why our two champions should be crowned The Swoonworthiest Couple! In the final match, which is between J.D. Robb's Eve/Roarke and Penny Reid's Cletus/Jennifer, Lucy Dosch is Team Eve/Roarke. Here she makes her case for why they should win the Swoonies 2017!

(Are you Team Cletus/Jennifer? We've got you covered too!)

Apprentice in Death by JD Robb

What makes them work?

Eve and Roarke both come from brutal beginning. They were raised motherless with a father that abused them physically. They understand the need of the other to become more than what they once were; Eve by becoming a police officer, and Roarke by succeeding in business.  They also understand that sometimes the pain of the past sneaks back up on you no matter how hard you try to outrun it. 

It is not just their brutal beginnings which makes them such a perfect pair.  Roarke might have spent his youth on the wrong side of the law, but to keep ahead of the police, he had to outthink them.  His ability to “think like a cop” allows him to step in with his fancy tech skills and assist his cop in her investigations whenever he can. 

What might be their undoing?

Eve and Roarke have literally walked through blood together but the hardest thing they faced together was Eve’s past.   Once Eve found Roarke, her subconscious finally allowed her to remember her childhood.  Eve was continuously beaten and raped by her father and caused his death during one violent rape.  Hearing how badly Eve was hurt and not being able to do anything about the past, caused a wound in Roarke that he can’t heal since there was no one for him to take it out on.  When, during an investigation, Eve and Roarke found out that Eve’s father was under surveillance and that the government agents were well aware that eight-year-old Eve was continually being raped by her father, Roarke set about finding the men who allowed it to continue so as not to ruin their ultimate goal.   Roarke tracked them all down and had plans of painful revenge upon those who sat back and allowed Eve to be brutalized, but he stopped his plans upon Eve’s pleas.  The cop in Eve couldn’t stand back and allow Roarke to kill in her name, not without destroying all they were building together.  Roarke chose Eve over vengeance, but if he ever tried to go forward with those plans, that would definitely be their undoing.

When you are the last remaining single brother in a close family like the Kellys, all your happily married sibling are always looking to help you out. But Joe Kelly is content to remain blissfully unattached, even if he surrounded by lovebirds. The idea of spending your whole life focused on one person is insane. Right?

Hard to Handle by Christine Warren

Christine Warren
Hard to Handle (Gargoyles Series #5)
St. Martin's Press / February 7, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital 

Hard to Handle is the latest novel in Christine Warren’s Gargoyle series and this time Beauty is the Beast.   

These Guardians protect our world against the Darkness and the Order of Nocturnis that serve them. Since the beginning of time, whenever one of the seven Guardians fell, another Guardian was sent to take his place.  His being the key word.  Guardians have always been an all-boys club, so how did Ash get here?

Why is the latest Guardian sent to earth female?  No one wants to know the answer to that mystery more than Ash.  She knows that there must be a very important reason that she was sent here as female, the first ever female Guardian, but why?

No matter what shape she wore, her strength could crush a mortal of either sex.  After all, she was a warrior and a Guardian.  She existed to battle the most powerful Demons the Darkness had ever spawned.  Her prowess could not be matched on this plane, even if this was the first time she had ever visited it.

The thought made her frown, because it meant something very important had brought her here.  She need to discover that reason, and for that, she should have a Warden by her side.

Justice Ascending by Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca Zanetti
Justice Ascending (The Scorpius Syndrome #3)
Zebra / January 31, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital 

Rebecca Zanetti’s latest novel in her dystopian Scorpius Syndrome series, Justice Ascending, features Tace Justice. Tace was a simple Good Old Boy from Texas and a former army medic. Tace expected to return to Texas some day and continue the family tradition of becoming a lawman. That was before the Scorpius bacteria wiped out most of the population and changed everything, and before the Scorpius infection changed Tace from a gregarious flirt to something so much darker.   

Most of those infected succumb to the high fevers and the bacteria’s attack on the brain. Survivors of the bacteria are never completely the same person they were before infection. Some are faster, stronger or smarter, but many lose a part of themselves, that part that makes them human. They lose the ability to have compassion and empathy since the bacteria attacks the frontal lobe of the brain. The damage done ranges from mild to severe and the worst of those fall into darkness and become Rippers. Rippers have dangerous psychopathic tendencies ranging from deranged to brilliantly cunning, but almost all have lost any interest in their fellow man.

Wild Kisses by Skye Jordan

Skye Jordan
Wild Kisses (Wildwood #2)
Montlake / January 10, 2017 / $12.95 print, $4.99 digital

A “second chance” romance usually refers to the main characters having an opportunity to reconnect and have a second chance at love, but I also think of this trope when the characters need a second chance at life. In Skye Jordan’s latest, Wild Kisses, the main characters are trying to outrun the mistakes of their youth that put their lives in a tailspin.  They have paid the consequences for their mistakes, and they are both trying to restart their lives. But they find not everyone believes that someone deserves a second chance.

Trace Hutton is trying to rebuild his life after several years in prison on a drug possession charge. He has paid dearly for that bad decision. He returned to Wildwood to take care of his aging father and to rebuild the construction business that he was forced to leave behind. There aren’t many who are willing to support him. Most of the people in town have known him all his life, but being a good kid and kind to your neighbors, doesn’t mean anything after you have spent a few years behind bars. Those small-town neighbors now only see an ex-con and instead of giving him a helping hand and a second chance, they are waiting around to see if he falls again.

The house was built on the site of a collapsed crossover passage to the land of the Dark Court, because of this, different parts of the manor have drifted into altered shifts between our plane and the Otherlands.

Pronunciation Dictionary for J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood

Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

Have you ever picked up an urban fantasy novel with its own world building and stared helplessly at the words in front of you before you futilely try to sound out the names of the characters or the concepts introduced?

I am a big fan of audiobooks and have listened to almost the entire Black Dagger Brotherhood series being read to me by Jim Frangione. My friend exclusively reads the BDB series.   Each time a new book is released, we have a sit down conference about the happenings of the story.  Yet from time to time we end up staring at each other like we are speaking two separate languages.  While I have listened to Jim’s pronunciation of some of J.R. Ward’s more interesting names and phrases, as a reader, she has looked at and interpreted these words on her own. 

It was time that all BDB lovers were on the same page so that all future Black Dagger Brotherhood conversations could be had in the same language.

Before we get started, we are going to presume that no one is having problems with the names and concepts such as Beth, Jane, Mary, Butch, John Matthew, Scribe Virgin, the Omega, and vampire.  So let’s get started…

New King of Our Heart in The Walking Dead: Will Ezekiel and Carol Upset Carol/Daryl Shippers?

Show/Episode: The Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 2, “The Well”
Ship (s): Carol x Ezekiel (Cezekiel), Carol x Daryl 

The Walking Dead, Captain's Log

Is it too soon to rent a hall, pick the flowers (just don’t look at them around Carol) and make sure Father Gabriel is available to do the ceremony?  Instead of a flower girl, we can have Arthur acting as apple bearer and pass fruit to all the guests. Because after last night’s The Walking Dead, I am thinking that if a man just happens to be taking his pet tiger for a walk in your new zombie-free neighborhood and just happens to stop by so he can talk you into trying his pomegranates, there might just be romance in the air.

I have been a long time Carol/Daryl shipper. Their pasts gave them common ground and losing Sophia bound them together. There is no question that they always gravitate towards each other.  When Rick banished Carol from the prison, Daryl was her staunch defender and when Carol rescued the group from Terminus and Daryl saw her for the first time in months, he ran—ran—into her arms with eyes filled with tears because he missed her so much.  But after finding a safe haven in Alexandria and they still weren’t playing house even my romantic heart started giving up hope that it would ever happen.

Sourcebooks / November 1, 2016 / $7.99 print & digital

In her new series, The Donnigans, Marie Harte proves that the best source of free entertainment is and always will be family.

At the start of A Sure Thing, clinical psychologist Ava Rosenthal is in a dating slump which she is desperately trying to turn around. Ava has a five year plan for her life and while her career goals are right on track, and plans for finding a husband and someday have a family are starting to hit a minimum deadline for achievement.  Ava has a list of specific requirements which her future spouse must have but so far none of the men who have met her requirements also have a sexual chemistry which would be needed for maximum success in marital bliss.

Rendezvous with Yesterday (The Gifted Ones #2)
Dianne Duvall / October 17, 2016 / $12.99 print, $4.99 digital

In Rendezvous with Yesterday, Dianne Duvall paints a brilliant picture of the differences of modern life and medieval England by blending her Gifted Ones series with her Immortal Guardians series and to do so, she only needed a splash of time travel dabbed with a little immortality.

Bethany Bennett is a modern woman who has a normal obsession with her cell phone and a not so normal one for guns. But the guns are important to her work in the family business as a bounty hunter. In a day that will change how Bethany views the world (and history), Bethany goes with her brother on what should be a long-shot tip to apprehend two wanted killers.  From the moment they step into the forest, everything goes wrong and Bethany is left fighting for her life.  She is losing a great deal of blood and as she loses consciousness, she isn’t sure if this is the end.  What she doesn’t realize is that when she wakes up she is no longer in modern day Texas, but in the forest of England in the year 1203.

Return to Whisper Hollow in Yasmine Galenorn’s Shadow Silence

Shadow Silence by Yasmine Galenorn

The quaint little town of Whisper Hollow is as quiet as the grave, which in Whisper Hollow isn’t quiet at all.  What goes into the grave here, doesn’t always stay there.  That is why Kerris Fellwater is the 50th spirit shaman who has taken up the post in Whisper Hollow.  She has been tasked by the Morrigan to help the restless spirits move on to the next realm.

But in Yasmine Galenorn’s latest, Shadow Silence, Kerris has felt a dark presence stirring up trouble with the spirits that wander in the woods and graveyards.  Something has been using magic to keep the Screaming Tree from warning that something dark is seething in the woods surrounding the Town.

There are seven rules that anyone who lives in Whisper Hollow knows.

In Safe Hands by Katie Ruggle

Katie Ruggle
In Safe Hands (Search and Rescue #4)
Sourcebooks / October 4, 2016 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

It is funny that the most intriguing character in Katie Ruggle’s Search & Rescue series is the one who can’t leave her house, but one sleepless night will end up putting Daisy in the cross-hairs of a killer in In Safe Hands.

Daisy Little hasn’t left her house since she witnessed her mother murder in a robbery when she was sixteen years old.  She now lives in a home more secure than the White House.  Her windows are barred and her double door entry has an intercom and both electronic locks and deadbolts.  Daisy hasn’t stepped out of her house in eight years, but it is from her window seat in her bedroom that she sees everything that happens in her neighborhood. 

It is from that window seat that Daisy watched what appeared to be a man carrying a dead body out of the vacant house across the street and into an SUV.  The first person Daisy contacts is her friend, Deputy Chris Jennings.  While Chris can’t give Daisy any information about ongoing investigations, he can set Daisy up with Search & Rescue diver, Lou Sparks, who has been playing the part of Nancy Drew since she inadvertently dislodged the headless dead guy from the lake.   Daisy is now part of the official and unofficial investigation in the recent deaths and missing persons around this once sleepy Colorado town.

Sparking the Fire (Hot in Chicago Series)
Pocket Books / September 27, 2016 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

Firemen are hot and they live a life of excitement and danger.  They are the subject of many TV shows, movies and books.  So how about a book about a movie about fireman?  Score!

In Kate Meader’s Sparking the Fire, actress Molly Cade’s shining star has taken a little tarnish lately.  A bitter divorce and some hacked private pictures splashed across the internet have sullied her reputation, but she has just the script to bring her back into the public’s affection. 

Firefighter Alexandra Dempsey grabbed headlines last year not only with her antics, but with her passionate and volatile relationship with former City Mayor Eli Cooper.   Molly has a fabulous script about a female firefighter from Chicago and her hot romance with a man of power, but what would really guarantee her a blockbuster would be getting Alex’s stamp of approval to personalize it and make it Alex’s story.

The One Real Thing (Hart's Boardwalk #1)
Berkley / September 6, 2016 / $15.00 print, $5.99 digital

As the summer winds down, Samantha Young gives us one last stroll on the beach with the first book in her new Hart’s Boardwalk series, The One Real Thing. She has created for us a place where you would go to simply find a little peace from the chaos known as life.

I stepped out onto the balcony and I didn’t even care that it was a cloudy, gray day above me.

Instead I enjoyed the wind blowing up off the water because it carried with it the smell of sea and the sound of the surf.  I closed my eyes, listening to that gentle rush, the lap of water against beach, the cry of gulls in the air, and I felt a moment of complete peace.

It is letters from the past and a desperate need for a vacation that bring Dr. Jessica Huntington to the little beach town of Hartwell, Delaware.  But from the moment she arrives, the peace and tranquility of the town, the boardwalk and the ocean makes Jessica feel a level of contentment she has never found anywhere else.
