This is the forth book from The Fallen Angels series.
This series is very different from the B.D.B. series from the same author, but the odd character does sometimes appear in both.
Jim Heron is a Fallen Angel who has to do battle with the Devil to claim the souls of certain people. These people are coming to a crossroads and must choose between right and wrong. Not always an obvious choice.
Matthias wakes up naked in a graveyard, with no idea how he got there. He stumbles out into the path of Mels ‘ car. Mels is a journalist looking for her first big story, and mourning for her father.
Matthias has amnesia but is extremely paranoid, maybe with good cause.
Mels seems to be a lot more accident prone than usual.
There are women being murdered, and assassins turning up round nearly every corner. So many mysterious things happening.
With the physical problems and the memory flashbacks. Matthias is having a very difficult time.
This book is quite the rollercoaster ride. You think it is nearly finished and the action starts again. With a big surprise ending.
This series MUST be read in order to know what’s going on.
I loved it and have always got the next book on my kindle to read soon.
Dance with the Devil
By Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Book #4 of the Dark Hunter series.
I’m a bit of a late starter with this series. I found it only a short while ago, so I have some serious catching up to do.
This is Zarek’s story.
On the way from New Orleans back to the baron wastelands of Alaska where he was banished to nine hundred years before, Zarek’s knows he is marked for death.
He has commited the ultimate crime and killed humans, this time banishment is not enough.
Astrid is asked by the goddess to judge Zarek. If he is guilty of the crimes he must die. To do this she comes to Zarek’s part of Alaska with her “pet” Sasha. Because Astrid is blind she has a very unique bond with Sasha.
Zarek is attacked and when he comes round he is in Astrid’s house. There is a very bad storm so he can’t leave.
Although Zarek doesn’t care If he lives or dies he can’t allow anyone else to be hurt by the ones out to kill him.
Zarek was a slave in his human life and has known nothing but abuse all his life.
Astrid must keep an open mind to judge him fairly.
The journey into Zarek’s past is traumatic. How can he possibly have remained sane?
This story is very emotional, with some very sad parts but also some very funny parts. We have all wanted our pets to be able to talk to us at some point. I would love one like Sasha or Simi, both are so funny and utterly believable, I am completely addicted to this series, and must have all the books. My one click finger is going to be worn out.
White Lion’s Lady.
By Lara Adrian, writing as Tina St.John.
This is a historical romance, that is the reason it is in the author’s other pen name.
When a young Isabel is chasing a butterfly she is saved from a wild boar by Griffin. He is the foundling foster son of the Earl of Droghallow. Isabel’s young heart is captured by the brave, handsome youth.
Many years later they meet again under very different circumstances. The person she has revered as the personification of everything honourable is now a kidnapper.
Griffin has done some very bad things in service to his Lord, but he is reaching his limit.
I will not spoil the story for you by saying too much more. There is a dangerous journey, and of course sexual tension. Also a very surprising detail about the beliefs surrounding twins in that era.
Well written and entertaining read.
Call of the Highland Moon
By Kendra Leigh Castle.
This is my first book from this author. I will be looking for a lot more.
Gideon, our hero is a Scottish werewolf traveling in U.S.A. when he is attacked by three other werewolves. Struggling to stay alive he follows a scent that he can’t resist.
Carly, our heroine owns a bookshop called Bodice Rippers and Baubles. ( I want to shop there). She is Just closing up for the night when she hears a scratching at the door .
The story is so much fun from the first page. I think Carly accepted what Gideon is very calmly, considering what she woke up to.
When Gideon phones home to tell them about the attack, the family insists he come home. The problem about that is he may have put Carly in grave danger, and he really doesn’t want to leave her.
The time at the shop is fun for all.
Carly has a warm loving family and very good friends. The danger that Gideon brings into her life is very real. He wants to protect her even If that means leaving her.
The danger is not Just for Gideon, the whole Pack is under threat. There are some great fights, and an interesting love story. I’m off to find some more.
By Barbara Bretton.
This is very funny book. Our heroine Chloe ,is a half human sorceress in a town filled with every type of Magical being you can think of. She has no Magical powers but the protection of the town rests on her shoulders. The protection spell cast by her ancestors needs to be renewed. Until her powers kick in or she finds the book of spells she is helpless.
Luke is a detective come to town to find out why a friend had died. The town is too perfect. No crime, no Hospital, and everyone in it is movie star gorgeous. His cop instincts go on red alert.
While everyone is trying to keep Luke from discovering the magic, Chloe has to try and find the book. And not fall in love with the human.
The magic tricks the whole town play trying to keep human , Luke from suspecting what they are is so funny. I want a basket of wool like Chloe’s.
The story catches you from the start. It is fast paced with lots going on all the time. Very entertaining. Loved it.
By Anna Markland.
I was lucky enough to be given an A.R.C. of this from the author, but that doesn’t colour my review.
I have read and loved every one of the books concerning this family. The Montbryces have been a big part of the politics surrounding the throne since the days before William the Conquer.
This book is Alexandre’s the 4th Comte de Montbryce. He lives in the family seat in Normandy. Alex has never seen the need to marry, his brothers can carry on the line. Now he is expected to house two children as hostages to ensure the behavior of their grandfather King David of Scotland.
King David has his own agenda and is sending Elayne and her twins to Normandy. The twins are the kings grandchildren but from his illegitimate son. Elayne has to pretend to be the children’s nanny. Nobody is to know that the children aren’t the legitimate heirs or that Elayne is their mother.
I don’t want to say too much about the story line, it would spoil it for you. There are some wonderful insights into the history of the time and this particular family. The description of the tapestry is lovely and educational. We have two very brave children, and one heroic dog. In a story that shows how a family colours the things we value most. Alex must face some personal demons to get his head straight. Elayne is faced with people who will know the truth.
A wonderful trip through a fascinating part of history, and a very moving love story. For those of you who might not have read the other books it is quite safe to read this as a stand alone ,but don’t read the family tree until you finish the book. I assure you once you have read this or any of the books about this incredible family you will want to read them all.

The Dark Angels. Series #2
This is a marvellous ,magical series. Must be read in order or you will not keep track of the characters, or the story line. There is an ending to the books, but they are strongly linked.
This time Risa, our heroine is set several tasks to complete. She has to find whoever has managed to make two vampires get old and go mad. She also has to find and read a Magical book,that will tell her where to find the keys to hell. Risa of course is not the only “person” after these things. With her dark guardian at her side, and in her head she fights her way through the story. Her lover wants to help, but can she trust him? Risa tries to keep all her friends and family from getting hurt. That doesn’t always work.
Our Risa is a true heroine fighting through to exhaustion to get the job done. Definitely a kickass girl.
A very fast paced story where the pages Just fly past. There is a little sex in here but not truly what I would call a romance. A great fun,Magical read for those of us who have out grown the magic of Harry Potter. A series that once started you will have to have more.
