Michael's HeartMichael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Michael’s Heart by Lori Thomas Harrington is a contemporary/inspirational romance. This novel is a highly emotional read; recommend a box of tissues and a quiet corner to read to just thoroughly enjoy the entire story and the fulfillment the author provides with their written words that are so touching. There is something deep and soulful about this story that digs it into you and makes it one of those stories that you will think about for days, weeks, maybe even months – one of those stories that you just need to read again because you want to ensure you didn’t miss anything because it was that good. Lori Thomas Harrington is a remarkable author and knows exactly how to bring her stories to her readers and make them unforgettable.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jumping the Shark (Paranormal Talent Agency, #5) by Heather Silvio was the story in this series that I was most excited to read.

A Deal with Death (Crescent City Wolf Pack Book 4) by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Heather Bahm

A Deal with Death (Crescent City Wolf Pack, #4)A Deal with Death by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Deal with Death (Crescent City Wolf Pack Book 4) by Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal/fantasy romance. This novel follows in the series closely with the previous books, but could be read separately. I do highly recommend that the books be read in order so that you get a full understanding in the depth this series provides and additional background on some of the characters that appear throughout the series.

In A Deal with Death spirits and shifters are the focus; the story line is high speed and exciting from beginning to end. Carrie Pulkinen had me sitting on the edge of my seat practically biting my nails as I crested page after page to see what fates were about to be unfolded next in this book. Odette and James are magnificent in this story and I loved how they were each missing something, but were drawn towards one another regardless. This author is highly talented and a great story teller!

A Protector’s Touch by Parker Sinclair – Review by Heather Bahm

A Protector's TouchA Protector’s Touch by Parker Sinclair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Protector’s Touch by Parker Sinclair is a new adult/college romantic suspense. I have read other stories by this author and this was a joy to read and I liked how it stood alone from the genre/types I’ve previous read from Parker Sinclair. Strong and amazing characters are delivered in this story despite the limited number of pages provided. April is magnificent in this story despite the difficult struggles that have occurred. I found this story remarkable and touching and emotionally charged creating that full dynamic that is needed in these type of stories.
