Seal of Protection #1
military, thriller, romance, suspense
(23 Jun. 2016)
Matthew “Wolf” Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn’t have to do it very often. He’d been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.
When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she’d ever seen. She also never expected he’d be so easy to talk to. She knew he’d never be interested in talking to her if he hadn’t been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.
Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she’d see, or need, Wolf, she’d be sorely mistaken.
A 10 book series!
At times I get invested into certain book series and authors and as I was very ‘brain full’ in the rest of life, I needed a set of readings that were not too dark, or brain taxing. These were well written enough to keep me involved and entertained for several days (note I read a book most days).
Whilst reading these I could not concern myself with anything else – they kept me involved and interested. So I read the whole series! One after the other… well not all 10 admittedly but 4 or 5.
I am rather fond of these alpha male military stories, even though they are far from the type of man I would really be interested in. Tattoos – no. Muscles – no!
Bad Boy Incorporated #3
February 28, 2018
The third new title in the popular Bad Boy Inc. series. When a retired assassin decides to go looking for love, he decides to trust the pros at a dating service and ends up finding a Deadly Match.
Oh these sexy assassins and fancy being called ‘Charming Reaper’ by your parents even if they are family names.
Bad Boy Inc rocks as do its employees – they are trained to be assassins and spies but not by a Govt and therefore they are not bound by any code of ethics – unless it is their own. But they don’t kill children.

A killer with a white picket fence. Suburbia, a great place for a man with secrets to hide—while investing in some solid real estate. The biggest drawback? Neighbors. In this case, a neighbor with sexy curves and a bright smile. Good thing she’s not his type. Single moms with annoying exes are on the do-not-date list. Stay away. Calvin wants to; it’s just not happening. He can’t help but find himself drawn to the chaos next door. And when danger threatens his suburban lifestyle, this assassin doesn’t hesitate to act. Killing people is easy. Domestication, on the other hand, terrifies him.
What a great name for an organisation of guys – plus 1 gal – who are assassins for hire – or ‘problem solvers’ as they put it.
With a cover story of being international real estate agents – which reminds of the real estate agents in my area called, wait for it, Hot Black Desiato.
So just who are the bad boys here? The BBI guys? Or the corrupt police they are happy to kill?
And should we like these bad boys who are American dreamboats? Well, they don’t kill women and children and do try to kill just bad guys. But being a UK citizen, I prefer my law enforcers not to use guns, but find myself conflicted as these are really good guys at heart… and protective of those who need it.
So a story I really enjoyed with good story-telling and style and a series that is clearly going to run through the guys and gal (see review of Pint Sized) and which I will read.
Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .
Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.
I’m afraid this book didn’t do it for me. I was bored and didn’t complete it. A tired story-line.
Evidence of Trust

Having grown up under the excessive expectations of her CEO father, Brittany Lucas is as resistant to authority as the mustang she’s training for her boss. It’s a fault that lands her in more danger than she bargains for while camping in the back-country of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Ranger Joel Morgan is used to having the upper hand in all his cases—until he runs into the headstrong blond while investigating disturbing incidents of poaching in the park. Brittany’s imprudent lie of omission awakens ghosts in his past, making the sizzling attraction between them unwelcome. As he searches for evidence he can trust her, the monster mutilating wildlife turns his sights on Brittany, and Joel discovers he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her—even give his own life. EXCERPT: Five minutes later, he rode back into Brittany Lucas’s camp as she threw a couple pieces of wood on the campfire that’d been nothing but banked coals when he left. She brushed off her hands before bracing them on her hips. “Now what?” He dismounted to unpack his gear. “I’ll be camping here with you tonight.” “Ranger Morgan, let me assure you, I have every intention of leaving in the morning.” “And until then, I’ll make sure you stay safe.” “I don’t need you to babysit me,” she insisted, irritation flooding her voice as she sat by the fire. Ignoring the fact she’d heard him earlier, he met her stare over the top of Nobel’s saddle. “You got a gun?” Her gaze faltered. “No.” “Well, the poacher does, so I’m staying.” That shut her up, until he tossed his sleeping bag inside her tent.
Poaching of moose and other animals in mountains of USA. Rangers trying to stop. Horse Farm for holiday riding with some horse taming by the horse whisperer.
Bit chick lit even though billed as a suspense story, the suspense was very light.
