Out-and-proud volunteer dance instructor, Reid Alexander, is a California boy accustomed to living in flashy luxury. He is less than thrilled upon inheriting his late grandfather’s South Dakota horse ranch. Yet he must endure three months of cowboy hell before he can even consider selling the property.
As the ranch foreman, Walker Corrigan’s entire life is Pine Ridge. When Reid arrives with cold-hearted plans to sell, Walker endeavors to endear the place to the younger man.
Reid is unprepared for the sudden attachment to Walker, the land, and – unbelievably enough – the horses.
Walker’s long-suffering heart takes an unexpected gallop straight toward Reid. Both men are on-board with exploring their relationship, and Reid discovers ranch ownership is more gratifying than he’d once imagined.
But Reid is forced to reconsider his place on the ranch when threats put the property and employees in danger.
Menacing events call Reid’s integrity into question, and he considers saving everyone the hassle and throwing in the reins. But how can he leave when his heart now feels at home on Pine Ridge Ranch and in Walker’s arms?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Reid and Walker…so night and day yet so perfect for one another. Reid and Walker….so afraid yet so hopeful about the other.
I am not going to lie when I said Reid is a major turn off initially. He is spoiled and privileged but once you start to get to know him….you get him. The opening scenes with Reid, I was seriously about to punch him. I was telling Norma Not to be nice to him…LOL
Walker is a seasoned rancher and closed off to love. His heart is now all about the ranch and he hopes and prays that Reid will SEE the ranch for how wonderful it is. He hopes and dreams of continuing life on the ranch and then his dreams turn to sharing that with Reid…..Wink Wink.
Reid is so out and loud and accepting of his sexuality that I did laugh at this “rancher serious clothing shopping trip” and following fashion show. Walker is so serious, but Reid is the breath of fresh air he needs. Walker is also what Reid needs. Walker helps him find a purpose and ranching is that purpose.
The story was a great read. My favorite scene is when Reid discovers Walker is gay thanks to his rock hard erection…LOL I totally laughed at the fact Reid bragged about his gay-dar and yet he missed Walker.
The plot with the person casing issues on the ranch was a great read and I think this story is a great read for anyone who has not read AD before. You get an awesome story and a great look into her beautiful love story writing style.
A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her pronouns
It’s even harder to keep a secret that could expose not only your family, but an entire species. That’s what Frankie Cavanaugh must do. As the daughter of the leader of the Wisdom Counsel, it’s up to her to step into her father’s shoes until another leader is chosen.
It’s also up to her to continue her lineage within the species.
She wants to do neither. She considers the shifter gene a curse rather than a gift, robbing her of a normal life. Unfortunately, the Counsel doesn’t see it that way and is determined to wed her to their next leader – by force, if necessary.
Tanner Coalson is fresh out of college and ready to tackle whatever life has in store for him. First item on his to-do list is marrying the woman he has loved for years. He knows Frankie will baulk at the notion because she’s fifteen years older and was his childhood sitter. He’s no longer a young boy, but a man who is determined to win her heart, and he is prepared to do just that.
But convincing her they are destined to be together gets much harder when she is kidnapped by an old enemy. In order to survive, Frankie may have to reveal her secret, and Tanner may have to accept what seems impossible, or reject the love of his life.
Talon Cavanaugh stood on the grassy knoll above the cemetery, watching the procession as it wound through the cracked tombstones to the final resting place of the Wisdom Council’s leader, Leonard Cavanaugh. He smiled in satisfaction as the urn was laid into the dirt pit next to where his human wife would someday reside. Soon, he thought, soon all would be in place and he could claim his birthright.
“Son, I know how much you loved your uncle. Are you sure you don’t want to go down and join in the ceremony?” his father asked.
Well, the man he had called ‘father’ for most of his life, inquired. It was only on his mother, Sylvia’s, death bed, that Talon had learned the truth. He was the son of Leonard Cavanaugh, the owl leader of the Wisdom Council, who had died never knowing he had fathered a son. Sylvia had wanted to ensure the bloodline stayed pure when it became apparent that the old fool was planning to wed that woman, Paige, an inferior human. Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father. Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige. Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.
Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure – one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.
And that position would be filled by him.

There are no good men, only bad ones. The men from my past have proven this time and time again. I have no reason to think this one will be any different. One minute, I’m having dinner with my father and the next, I’m locked in a dark room waiting to be sold to the highest bidder. I can only imagine what kind of hell my life is about to become.
I am what I am. A sadist with a soul as dark as night. I’ve accepted this long ago. I wasn’t always like this. A man can only see so much evil until it changes him, haunts him, and clouds the way he views the world. I swore to never let anyone get close to me, but there’s something about Hannah. She intrigued me. I wanted her. I needed to know what lies beyond that broken spirit. I had to have her…so I bought her.

It will consume us. Ravage us. Ruin us.
Chelsea Novak is fire.
And I’m a man ready to burn for the one woman I can never make mine.
A brand new full length forbidden romance novel in the original Storm MC series.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
I was so excited to get back to The Storm MC series. Gunnar and Chelsea did not disappoint. Reading about them and seeing all the other characters made my heart happy. There is nothing like a strong Alpha biker and an even stronger woman.
Gunnar and Chelsea come from wealthy families and grew up together. They have been friends since they were five. Only difference is Gunnar broke away from that lifestyle and Chelsea was pulled farther and farther into it. Chelsea betrayed Gunnar over and over and finally ripped out his heart. Everything she did was for him even if he didn’t see or know it. No matter how much they wanted to avoid each other there were things that would pull them together. The sparks would fly and then the hurtful words would spew out.
This story was so intense that it sucked me in and I had a hard time setting it down. There was so much going on it was a true emotional roller coaster. This is packed with passion, drama, and action that kept me wanting more and needing more.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret. I am a paranormal whore. I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me. So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly. Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read. With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!! Like WTF!! It blew me outta the damn water. I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning. I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read. FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!! Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!
I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created. I loved her mythology. I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him. Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!! Theo is thrust into this NEW world. She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open. When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be. Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her. They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.
The story was so wonderfully written. I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!! Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling. I thought the flow of the story was amazing. You were always wondering what would happen next. I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing. When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger. The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!
I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!! #TeamNovus #TeamLore #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes

I received this audio book from the author for an honest review.
So I admit I am on the fence with my review for this book. I was flipping and flopping with what I felt because it’s a complex story a times and then other times I felt it was jumbly.
This is the story about a happily married couple, Cathy and Brett. They are attracted and in love but maybe they are realizing something is missing. Cathy noticed her husband is being secretive about his “Computer time” and she is finding some fulfillment flirting with her co-workers…a couple of guys specifically.
Where I have flip flopped about how I feel about the story is there seems, TO ME, to be some conflict in the story background. Brett is hyper jealous but yet the couple had talked about swinging in the past. Brett doesn’t trust Cathy with Jeremy and yet Jeremy is who they include???
Don’t get me wrong. The story is hawt and the scenes are sexy as hell but I just felt a little bit confused with the storyline at times.

Vivian is happily married to her real-life Prince Charming who is also her best friend. One of her guilty pleasures is reading and writing smut while indulging in chocolate caramel candies.
Despite being wealthy, Ellie Manchester has had a rough life. She witnessed her mother’s murder at age seven, but didn’t see the man responsible. Plagued by nightmares, and a drunken father, Ellie has grown up to believe that she can only rely on herself. When her father dies in an accident, she becomes an heiress of sorts… and a target.
Tanner Paxton was a tough and tumble kid who turned his penchant for getting into fights into a successful security business. He loves his work but doesn’t have time for much else, especially relationships. When he’s hired to protect Ellie, against her will, he not only finds himself embroiled in dangerous chaos, but falling in love with the most stubborn and beautiful woman he’s ever met. But love may be a weakness that can get them both killed.
This book is about Ellie who has had a ROUGH life to stay the least. She witnessed her mothers death and now her father has died mysteriously so she is numb. Her old family friend is worried because people keep sending letters and trying to make attempts on her life. Ellie is jut not that worried about herself and so she ignores all the concern for herself. Enter Pax. He is hired to be a friend to Ellie but mainly PROTECT her at all costs.
Pax and Ellie have an attraction, but both are pushing the feelings away. He thinks of her as a job and she knows she is horrible at relationships given her last one. He ex just won’t give up even when she caught him cheating. She is being manhandled at a club with friends. She is almost kidnapped!! Ellie just can’t get a break!!
Ellie and Pax are being thrown together while also denying what they feel about the other. Pax is also worried because Ellie is not going to like it if she discovers he is secretly working as a security detail for her family friend. I did enjoy Pax grabbing Ellie a few times and making the first moves but then wanted to throat punch Ellie for walking it back….guuurl when a man kisses you like THAT you don’t stop and say but we are jut friends!! LOL
The story is a mystery of who is trying to hurt Ellie and why. I kinda figured out who the bad person was a bit though the story. But the ride of the story was a good one to read for anyone looking for something with some twists and turns.
I will say I did enjoy the narrator’s voice in the story. It was a warm sounding voice who made Ellie’s character seem likeable even when she was pushing Pax away at every turn. LOL

Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to not only protect his own kind, but humans as well. Crimson Rush is the new drug on the streets, and it’s their duty to find who is behind the selling of vampire blood and stop it.
A social worker, Nicole Callahan, fights for the right of every child placed in her care. There’s a war now, as vampires have stepped out into the spotlight taking their place in society, and the children are at the heart of it all.
Damon and his fellow warriors have been ordered by the Vampire Council to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face in their new world. Even as sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.
I read this book back in March 2014. Teresa has just released the audios and I am so enjoying going back and listening to them. I could not believe how much of the minor things I forgotten over the years. I have to say I still love these warriors today as much as I did 5 years ago.
Nicole is a social worker that takes her job seriously. She is determined to keep the kids safe and it doesn’t matter if they are human or vampire.
Damon, one of the Vampire Council Warriors, was sent to train the social workers on how to protect themselves while doing their jobs. The sparks start to fly as soon as Nicole and Damon first see each other. However, Damon does not want to get involved and attached so Nicole comes up with a “friends with benefits” option.
I love that Nicole is tough and stands up to these big tough Vampires, never backing down never giving up and has no issues getting in their faces. Things start to go bad when Nicole and the others realize there are some pretty mean people out to get her because she is doing her job so well. Damon pulls the “I’m getting too close so I’ll push her away” routine and right after she lays her feelings out on the table.
I also enjoyed the close friendship almost sisterly like relationship that Nicole and Pam have. Seeing Nicole, Pam, and Jared interacting was great. Pam and Jared always made me smile or laugh. I would get aggravated with Damon he would be so sweet and nice and then go all Alpha male thinking he was protecting Nicole but only end up hurting her feelings. Here again Nicole always called him out on it and stood up to anyone she felt was doing wrong by her. I loved that she had pet turtles, Ren and Stimpy, and not the typical cat or dog. The way Nicole collects the money for the kids Christmas party was a gag.
Like i said enjoyed this book today as much as I did when I read it. I am so ready for Jared. The narrator did a wonderful job his voice changes were enough that you realized it was a different character. I am so ready to listen to all these warriors stories and catch up on all of them.
