Life isn’t all sunshine and love like they tell you as a child. Life is about pain and sometimes love doesn’t stand the test of time.

Member of the Powder River Pack, werewolf Derek Sumerland had found his one true mate after tragedy struck at an early age. Annabelle Daniels was his everything until she wasn’t.

And now he lives his life with the daily reminder of the fact he didn’t fight for her or go after her when he should have. His heart is wrecked; his chest is forever in a vice and yet, he somehow finds a way to go on with his so called life.

Annabelle left her past with a broken heart. She did her best to never look back until her estranged father began to edge closer to his death bed.

Even with thoughts of Derek, it is guilt that pushes her back to Fetterman, Wyoming. She didn’t expect to see him and certainly didn’t expect to find a handsome, angry man where the young man she loved stood.

He wasn’t lying when he said she was the one.

Annabelle must decide between the love of her life and the life she has worked hard to achieve.

Can they have a second chance?


Romance author Brooke May spends her days writing whatever her overactive imagination has brewed up and her evenings reading while she works alongside her mom. Telling stories is second natural to her, from a young age she has told anyone who would listen what she had thought up. Now, a mom of two, she splits her time writing, playing with her kids, and of course, hiking, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in her beloved Bighorn Mountains.

While on maternity leave with her youngest, Brooke was putting laundry away when she looked at a poem she had written in high school that was framed in her son’s bedroom. That poem triggered the idea of My Cowboy and soon she was sitting in front of her computer with her infant next to her writing her first love story that wasn’t a fanfiction.

Nathaniel is the 1st book in USA Today Bestselling and Amazon #1 author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW paranormal series, DRAGON HEARTS.

Warriors, from the mists of time?
Dragons, of myth and legend?
Or both?

Taking a much-needed holiday in North Wales, journalist Chloe Evans discovers a castle not listed on any of the dozen or so maps she has of the area. The nearest thing she can find is the remains of a castle that used to be there but crumbled into ruin many centuries before. Her curiosity getting the better of her, Chloe decides to find out more about this imposing grey stone castle and anyone who might live there.

The locals, she discovers, call it Pendragon Castle. When Chloe asks them more probing questions some say there are half a dozen male members of the original family still in residence, and that they’re brothers. Others claim there to be more, or less, than that number. But all, without fail, describe those men as being big and muscular, more handsome than any man has a right to be, with eyes capable of mesmerizing and seducing any woman who falls under their spell. Some of those people add a knowing wink, others a warning not to venture too near the castle, and to certainly keep her distance from the men living there.

Visitors staying at the same small hotel as Chloe talk of seeing bright lights and helicopters landing on the mountain late at night, and of hearing strange noises that sound like the roars of wild animals.

There was a story here, Chloe is certain of it.

Whatever the story is regarding Pendragon Castle and the men who lived there, Chloe decides she isn’t leaving Wales until she’s discovered exactly what’s going on.

While exploring the area around the castle, Chloe is challenged by the dark and taciturn Nathaniel. A man who fits the description of the castle’s inhabitants exactly: well over six feet tall, handsome as sin, with shoulders wide enough to fill a doorway, and eyes the colour of the clearest emerald.

The moment she gazes into those mesmerizing green eyes Chloe realises she should have run while she still could.

Bound by Blood (Crescent City Wolf Pack #3) by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Emily Walsh

Bound by Blood (Crescent City Wolf Pack, #3)Bound by Blood
ByCarrie Pulkinen
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bound by Blood (Crescent City Wolf Pack #3) by Carrie Pulkinen was a fast paced, action packed, steamy romance, that had me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read by this author or in this series. I am addicted to these books! I will tell you that though these read as standalones, there are major spoilers and backstories from the other two books. So I highly suggest reading them before this one. That and, they’re freaking awesome as well.

I’ve been waiting for this book, right from book one when Alexis met Bryce in the first book. Sparks seemed to fly, and you even notice it in the second. This is a long time coming for me and I was so happy to finally read their story. I was not disappointed, I knew it was going to be Alexis centered and the hard life she lead up till now. Getting her backstory, fully, was what I’ve been waiting for. I have to say, it’s dark, heart breaking and makes you just want to hug her, but at the same time it makes you understand why she so stand-of-ish and unable to fully settle down. Alexis has been a solid character since book one, and I will tell you, though she my be damaged, but she’s no pushover. Girl is kickass.

Bryce, he’s another character we finally get to see the true colours of. I’m not going to tell you what they are as it will ruin the fun. But damn, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers. Overall Bryce again is has been a solid character from book one. There’s a twist at the end that brings him and Macey full circle and it fit perfectly. I was kind of expecting it, but still pleasantly surprised when I was right.

Overall this book like it’s predecessors was a wicket thrill ride that full of messy action, kickass werewolves, steamy romance and of course, rich detailed writing that just pulls you into this unique, captivating world. This book, this series, is a must read. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will fall head over heels for this outstanding read.

Happy Reading

Ignorance isn’t always bliss.

New Orleans homicide detective Bryce Samuels would rather save lives than investigate deaths. He earns a promotion allowing him to do just that, but he never thinks the people he’ll be tasked to save will be the ones closest to him. When the woman of his dreams shows up on his doorstep, beaten and bruised, the mysteries surrounding her “accident” will leave him fighting not just for her life, but for his own.

A rogue can’t be expected to settle down, especially with a human cop, who doesn’t know werewolves exist. But that’s exactly what Alexis Gentry’s wolf nags her to do from the moment she meets Bryce. When a run-in with her sadistic ex turns deadly, she seeks shelter with the sexy detective to avoid starting a war between the packs.

Alexis guards her heart as heavily as her secrets, but as the walls come down, she can’t help but fall for Bryce. Letting him into her supernatural world will endanger his life, but she soon discovers what he doesn’t know can hurt him.

Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal romance author who has always been fascinated with things that go bump in the night. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her love of a good happily-ever-after, and becoming a paranormal romance author seems like the only logical career choice.

Before she decided to turn her love of the written word into a career, Carrie spent the first part of her professional life as a high school journalism and yearbook teacher. She loves good chocolate and bad puns, and in her free time, she likes to read, drink wine, and travel with her family.






That Voodoo That You Do (Chateau Rouge Book 1) by Jolie St. Amant – Review by Debi Kircher

That Voodoo That You Do (Chateau Rouge Book 1)That Voodoo That You Do by Jolie St. Amant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That Voodoo That You Do (Chateau Rouge Book 1) by Jolie St. Amant

5 Stars

This was an awesome collection of 3 short stories that I absolutely loved and enjoyed. One of my favorite parts is that they are all based in New Orleans at The Chateau Rouge. Now after reading all 3 of these, all I could think of is I want to go there, I would probably be scared out of my mind half the time but I don’t care, all of the characters in these stories were written and portrayed perfectly. This author has a way of taking very few pages and adding in so much content and not in a way that it feels like it has all been jam packed in there, there are also mini twists and turns throughout, not those kind that are earth shattering or major story changing but those kind that are placed perfectly and you never see them coming.

I have said this before and now I’ll say it again, I could read 100 books all in a row that take place at The Chateau Rouge, and I highly recommend this as it was just plain fun to read and I do see me reading all of these again in the future.

Loved Loved Loved this collection!!!
