The President's Daughter
by Seelie Kay
Genre: Romantic Suspense 

Be careful what you wish for because it just might send your life into a tailspin from which you may not recover.

When presidential candidate Jamisen Powell meets volunteer Sarah Lee Pearson, he is shocked to discover her eyes mirror his own. But Sarah was raised by two loving parents and has no questions about her heritage. Instead, after their death, she merely longs to find an extended family. She becomes convinced that Powell could be a distant relative. Powell, on the other hand, has spent twenty-five long years haunted by the memory of a daughter kidnapped from her bed. He suspects Sarah could be his long-lost daughter. As both launch separate covert searches for the truth, Sarah is found by the estranged parents of the man who raised her. Suddenly, the truth will no longer set her free. It could destroy the happy memories of her childhood. Hang on to your seat, and more importantly, hang on to your heart, as one woman discovers the true meaning of family.

Girl with all the Pain
Michael Herman
(Aliens, Tequila & Us #4)
Publication date: February 23rd 2018
Genres: Science Fiction, Thriller, Young Adult
Sometimes an ugly duckling becomes more than just a swan.
In the streets of Santiago, Chile, a young homeless girl named Isabel screams a scream of rage that is the last sound the gang tormenting her ever hears.
Deep within the city, a family feels her cry and sets out to find her for their sake as well as hers.
Never straying far from Isabel, Skunk Mountain, a homeless pile of walking filth, visible to only the neighborhood kids, maintains a guardian presence that is key to her survival in a world where, beneath the very ground they walk, a dark ancient intelligent entity prepares to unleash forces that will devastate Chile.
Sometimes that swan has claws and teeth.

EXCERPT:
When the woman strokes Isabel’s black fur, Isabel purrs loudly and makes clicking sounds. She knows she rests between friends who will not allow the ones below the base of the statue to harm her. The woman looks down at Isabel and says, “At long last, I have found you. You have not been forgotten. You and your people will return. We will end your long-suffering. You will no longer be alone.”
Isabel looks up at her with her black cat yellow eyes, and purrs. But below her feet, the ground trembles with the might of her enemy. The woman acknowledges the terrible presence beneath them and stoops to Isabel and says, “Only you can restore order. Only you can save them. Only you can end this. When your knowledge of yourself matures and you flower to your destiny, you will fulfill yourself and your time will be complete. We will join you and make it happen. Do you understand?”
Isabel snarls in response and lets out a mighty roar.
Then she is back on the daylight street holding hands with the mirror version of herself. She looks into the mirror self’s eyes and a shudder ripples through her body. The mirror version releases her hands, smiles, looks to Ángel and says, “All is well.”

Terrestrial Magic by Marina Ermakova (Jordan Sanders #1)

Terrestrial Magic

My Rating: 3.5 stars
Written by: Marina Ermakova
Series: Jordan Sanders
Sequence in Series: Book 1
Paperback: 358 pages
Publisher: Independently published
Publication Date: December 5, 2018
ISBN-10: 1790491592

Genre: Mystery | Scifi | Fantasy

Most sensible people avoid fire-breathing carnivores that prey on humans. But Jordan has built a career out of studying such legendary animals, creatures thought mythological until their reemergence in the world three decades ago. She and researchers like her believe that knowledge is the key to reclaiming the land they'd lost back then, when humanity retreated into designated safety zones.

But when the humans moved out, the legends moved in. They were the descendants of mythical heroes, inheriting the powers of their ancestors, and they weren't afraid of the monsters. Jordan never expected to run into a legend, but when a field expedition turns into a trap for her team, she realizes that one deliberately tried to kill her. It's a diplomatic nightmare the Roman authorities might happily sweep under the rug. But if Jordan doesn't figure out who attacked her and why, they could try again. Yet even if she does solve the mystery, what could one stubborn scientist possibly do to stop a powerful legend?

Terrestrial MagicTerrestrial Magic by Marina Ermakova

TERRESTRIAL MAGIC has a very detailed Sherlock Holmes-ish mystery with a world that reminds me a cross between the InCryptid series meets Percy Jackson. I know it’s a lot to take in but somehow Ermakova takes all my favorites in my choice novels and mashes them into a something completely fresh and new.

First, there is Jordan who studies legendary animals, which they call a total awesome name of “legamals”. Then there is a reawakening or power play by the of families from the mythical demigods or past people with mythical powers called “legends” and a divide between them and the humans now facing a broken magical infused world.

The story starts out with Jordan and a crew of field scientist going out to a dangerous zone, outside of Rome, to see if they can find and study a reported legamal sighting. During this trip, they find themselves trapped by “something” magical and after a brief time fighting for their lives they know that one of the legend families is trying to kill them. Now its up to them to figure out what legend family is behind the attacks and why.

This story was everything I should love but something kept me from loving it. It was very detailed in some ways but then there were some major holes that were where I wanted to understand more. I liked the story. I would want to see more of this really original take on modern day myths come to life but I think too much was presented without enough to back up a character and/or plot connection. In the end, it was 3.5 stars.

I received this ARC copy of TERRESTRIAL MAGIC from Marina Ermakova. This is my honest and voluntary review. TERRESTRIAL MAGIC is set for publication Jan. 17, 2019.

The Women of Brambleberry House are back!

Returning home to Cannon Beach and living in Brambleberry House, a place where good things seemed destined to happen, had brought Melissa Fielding and her young daughter such joy. Perhaps it was no accident when the single mom “bumped” into Eli Sanderson, and discovered the handsome doctor was also back in town. The ex-soldier was still so captivating, but also more guarded. Was now the time to put old ghosts to rest?

A Soldier's ReturnA Soldier's Return by RaeAnne Thayne

The perfect book to cuddle up by the fire with a glass of wine and just enjoy.

A single mom who has made it on her own as a nurse.

A man reeling from the experiences of war.

Brought together when his father needs him to come home and help with the family practice, because the town doctor needs surgery.

I really enjoyed A Soldier's Return. I'm not a big fan of internal or external, for that matter, dialog that is repetitive or self inflicted (you know the oh, whoa-is-me, I can't be loved or love because I'm guilty, depressed, not good enough, you get the picture). There was a little bit of that in A Soldier's Return and that was the only thing keeping me from loving it. In the end, I found it cute, heartfelt and endearing and I really liked it.

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

She’s missed her daughter, she’s missed Reyes, and Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #13)Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones

Fun-filled, laugh out loud funny and fighting evil, what else could you ask for for the conclusion of the Charley Davidson season.

I have to admit, I'm a little conflict knowing this is the last in the series but Jones wraps up this zany, outlandish, utterly addicting series with panache that we've come to expect.

Charlie and Reyes are about to face the ultimate show down and it becomes a family affair.

Finish the Charley Davidson series just makes you want to pick them all up and doing a re-read.

The first three books in this action-packed series by International Bestselling Author Danielle Annett

This kick-butt urban fantasy series has been featured on USA Today, Heroes & Heartbreakers, and includes #1 Amazon Bestseller Cursed by Fire. You're sure to enjoy it if you like snarky heroines, kick-butt fight scenes, and unexpected twists.

BOOK ONE: CURSED BY FIRE

There's a reason your mother always said, "Don't talk to strangers."

It has been six years since the Awakening, and peace in Spokane, Washington is still tenuous at best. The vampires and shifters are all vying for control of the city and the humans seem to be the ones suffering the consequences, or so it seems.

Aria Naveed has spent the last two years of her life fighting to make the many wrongs of the world right, but soon finds out that the humans aren’t as weak as they appear and may be a more terrifying foe than any of the other races combined.

When a stranger rolls into town with trouble on his heels, Aria finds herself trapped in the middle of a battle that could cost her more than she has bargained for. Will a fight for justice turn into an unexpected fight for her life?

BOOK TWO: KISSED BY FIRE

New Rule: If it has sharp teeth, don’t trust it. Being bitten hurts like hell.

As Friend of the Pack, Aria Naveed should be untouchable, protected by the most influential group in the Pacific Northwest. But someone is unleashing rogue vampires to hunt her down, and she is determined to find out why.

When Aria gains command of Sanborn Place and takes on a case involving a mysterious paranormal, her life is put in more peril than ever as she finds herself bound to an influential power player. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s puppet, but must tread carefully as she traverses the streets of Spokane, WA, or risk being overwhelmed by the forces moving against her.

As the only known pyrokinetic in the area, Aria is in high demand, but not for her services. It appears that to some, she’s worth more dead than alive. Will she figure out who it is that’s out to get her in time, or will her life become forfeit when she comes face to face with a very powerful foe?

BOOK THREE: BURNED BY FIRE

When you ask yourself, “What else can go wrong?” The answer is everything.

Aria’s pyrokinetic abilities have always been hard to control, and being pulled in so many directions isn’t making things any easier. Now she has to help Inarus, a foe turned friend who is being targeted by the Human Alliance Corporation—the very organization he once worked for.

But the HAC has more than just Inarus in their sights. Aria finds herself going deep into enemy territory to save a witchling child with never before seen powers that the HAC has kidnapped to further their own ends.

Aria has been hired to save a child once before, and she failed. That failure has haunted her even to this day and she won’t let herself fail again. With the HAC closing in, and complications between herself and the Pack rising, Aria has no choice but to succeed. A child’s life is on the line and Aria will risk everything to save that life but in the end, will all of her efforts be enough?

If you loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then you’ll love Aria Naveed. Kicking butt and saving people is kind of her thing.

Blood & Magic: Volume One - Books 1-3Blood & Magic: Volume One - Books 1-3 by Danielle Annett

I completely loved being caught up in Aria’s tale. Vampires, shifters and witches Oh MY! Annett writes a fascinating story of a world where magic has broken through and then it broke the world. Now it’s a fight for survival.

Blood & Magic is a the combination of the first three books in the Blood & Magic series and once you read straight through book 1 – 3 you will do exactly what I did…I went and one clicked CONSUMED BY FIRE.

Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing becoming "the crazy cat lady."

But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian," she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him...

Warrior of the World by Jeffe Kennedy Tour & #Giveaway


Warrior of the World
Chronicles of Dasnaria #3
by Jeffe Kennedy
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Pub Date: 1/8/19

Just beyond the reach of the Twelve Kingdoms, avarice, violence, strategy, and revenge clash around a survivor who could upset the balance of power all across the map. . .

Once Ivariel thought elephants were fairy tales to amuse children. But her ice-encased childhood in Dasnaria’s imperial seraglio was lacking in freedom and justice. With a new name and an assumed identity as a warrior priestess of Danu, the woman once called Princess Jenna is now a fraud and a fugitive. But as she learns the ways of the beasts and hones new uses for her dancer’s strength, she moves one day further from the memory of her brutal husband. Safe in hot, healing Nyambura, Ivariel holds a good man at arm’s length and trains for the day she’ll be hunted again.

She knows it’s coming. She’s not truly safe, not when her mind clouds with killing rage at unpredictable moments. Not when patient Ochieng’s dreams of a family frighten her to her bones. But it still comes as a shock to Ivariel when long-peaceful Nyambura comes under attack. Until her new people look to their warrior priestess and her elephants to lead them . . .




Exile of the Seas
Chronicles of Dasnaria #2

Around the shifting borders of the Twelve Kingdoms, trade and conflict, danger and adventure put every traveler on guard . . . but some have everything to lose.

ESCAPED
Once she was known as Jenna, Imperial Princess of Dasnaria, schooled in graceful dance and comely submission. Until the man her parents married her off to almost killed her with his brutality.

Now, all she knows is that the ship she’s boarded is bound away from her vicious homeland. The warrior woman aboard says Jenna’s skill in dancing might translate into a more lethal ability. Danu’s fighter priestesses will take her in, disguise her as one of their own—and allow her to keep her silence.

But it’s only a matter of time until Jenna’s monster of a husband hunts her down. Her best chance to stay hidden is to hire out as bodyguard to a caravan traveling to a far-off land, home to beasts and people so unfamiliar they seem like part of a fairy tale. But her supposed prowess in combat is a fraud. And sooner or later, Jenna’s flight will end in battle—or betrayal . . .




Prisoner of the Crown
Chronicles of Dasnaria #1 

She was raised to be beautiful, nothing more. And then the rules changed . . .

In icy Dasnaria, rival realm to the Twelve Kingdoms, a woman’s role is to give pleasure, produce heirs, and question nothing. But a plot to overthrow the emperor depends on the fate of his eldest daughter. And the treachery at its heart will change more than one carefully limited life . . .

The Gilded Cage
Princess Jenna has been raised in supreme luxury—and ignorance. Within the sweet-scented, golden confines of the palace seraglio, she’s never seen the sun, or a man, or even learned her numbers. But she’s been schooled enough in the paths to a woman’s power. When her betrothal is announced, she’s ready to begin the machinations that her mother promises will take Jenna from ornament to queen.
But the man named as Jenna’s husband is no innocent to be cozened or prince to charm. He’s a monster in human form, and the horrors of life under his thumb are clear within moments of her wedding vows. If Jenna is to live, she must somehow break free—and for one born to a soft prison, the way to cold, hard freedom will be a dangerous path indeed…

A Spell of Murder
Witch Cats of Cambridge Book 1
by Clea Simon
Genre: Cozy Mystery 

It’s Harriet’s fault. It’s always her fault, not that she’ll ever admit it.” So begins A Spell of Murder: A Witch Cats of Cambridge mystery, the first in a new cozy series that mixes feline fiction with a touch of the paranormal, and a little romance as well.


Becca, newly single and newly unemployed, wants to believe she has psychic powers. With nothing but time – and a desire for empowerment – she’s studying to become a witch. What she doesn’t know is that her three cats – Harriet, Laurel, and Clara – are the ones with the real power. And when Harriet – “a cream-colored longhair with more fur than commonsense” – conjures a pillow for her own comfort, Becca believes her spells are finally working. Could that be why Trent, the coven’s devilishly handsome leader, has been showing her special attention? Or why Suzanne, a longtime coven member, draws her aside to share a secret – a confidence that may lead to murder?





Clea Simon is the author of "A Spell of Murder," the first in her new "Witch Cats of Cambridge" series. She is also the author of "World Enough," a rock 'n' roll noir, as well as the Blackie and Care series (most recently "Cross My Path") chronicling the adventures of the pink-haired Care and the black feral cat who loves her. In addition to these darker books, she is also the author of the Dulcie Schwartz feline mysteries, the Pru Marlowe pet noir mysteries, and the Theda Krakow mysteries, as well as three nonfiction books, including The Feline Mystique: On the Mysterious Connection Between Women and Cats.
The recipient of multiple honors, including the Cat Writers Associations Presidents Award, she lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her husband, Jon Garelick, and their cat, Musetta.
