HE’S TAKING A BITE OUT OF CRIME.

Alex Sanchez is more than just an ordinary detective. He’s on the prowl–as a vampire. Alex uses his unique gifts to police the mean streets of Chicago like a natural predator. But when he learns that local blood banks are being robbed, he’s not sure what rattles him more: the bizarre crime wave or the stunningly beautiful journalist who’s reporting it…

SHE’S RISKING HER NECK FOR A STORY.

Keira Turner is dedicated to her job–and determined to uncover the truth. Dangerously, out-of-this-world handsome Detective Sanchez seems oddly fascinated by the crimes–and obsessed with Keira. Alex might not have a clue who’s stealing blood but he’s sure of one thing: Keira is no mere mortal. She’s descended from a long line of vampire hunters. And if they try to solve this case together, he’ll have to fight the urge to kiss her…or kill her.

Night's Surrender

Aspiring actress Abbey Marie Cordova knows more than most people do about vampires—she was born among them, the only human child in a centuries-old family of the undead, and determined to stay that way. But a chance encounter with dark, mysterious Niccola Desanto rocks her to the core. Nick is a vampire, and he’s the only man who has ever made her feel so beautiful, so cherished, and so passionately desired …

Rumor has it the vampire who made him has regained her humanity—the temptation to find her and demand to know the secret is overwhelming. But one glance at innocently alluring Abbey changes everything. Drawn to her with dangerous, consuming passion, Nick will need more than a lifetime to love her…

Book Review Of “Highland Storm” By Christina Courtenay

highlandstormBrice Kinross has been drinking himself silly to try and come to terms with the fact that the only women Brice has ever loved, has gone and married his brother Jamie. Brice has given up on love and wants nothing to do with it, no matter what women should walk into his life. To bad he won’t be able to keep that promise to himself.

Brice’s father has had enough of his sons pitty party, and tells him that it’s his time to become laird of the family estate Roysth in the Scottish Highlands. Brice thinks this is not a bad idea, it might help him to get over what has happened. Elisabet, Brice’s father also informs him that he thinks the current landlord is not operating Roysth properly and suspects that there is money going missing. Brice and his father come up with an idea that Brice is going to go “undercover” as someone passing by and looking for a job at Rosyth estate. This should turn up the details of what is going on.

Brice can not believe his eyes when he gets a load of what his family’s estate Rosyth looks like. The main house is not being up kept, there is a shortage of cattle, and the local village people’s houses are all in desperate disrepair. Brice immediately knows that there is something going on at Roysth and is more then determined to find out what. Just as Brice enters the main house, he notices a beautiful redheaded lady and is immediately aw-stuck by her beauty. Brice will later find out how much this women, Marsaili Buchanan, who is the housekeeper, will really mean to him. Brice will not be able to control his feelings for Marsaili and will go to the ends of the earth for her. He will also develop and ally when it comes to figuring out what the current landlord Colin Seton is really up to.

Twists, Turns, and Deceit will grace the pages of “Highland Storms.” I really loved the plot of this book and loved the main character Brice. I also liked the villain Colin Seton, and how this novel kept you wanting to read more and find out what he is up to. I hope there is a sequel to this novel as I can’t wait to read it if there is. Great job Christina and thank you for giving me the opportunity to read “Highland Storms.”

highlandstorm

Betrayed by his brother and his childhood love, Brice Kinross needs a fresh start. So he welcomes the opportunity to leave Sweden for the Scottish Highlands to take over the family estate.

But there’s trouble afoot at Rosyth in 1754 and Brice finds himself unwelcome. The estate is in ruin and money is disappearing. He discovers an ally in Marsaili Buchanan, the beautiful redheaded housekeeper, but can he trust her?

Marsaili is determined to build a good life. She works hard at being housekeeper and harder still at avoiding men who want to take advantage of her. But she’s irresistibly drawn to the new clan chief, even though he’s made it plain he doesn’t want to be shackled to anyone.

And the young laird has more than romance on his mind. His investigations are stirring up an enemy. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what he wants – including Marsaili – even if that means destroying Brice’s life forever …

Sneak Peek: “The Lure of the Moonflower” by Lauren Willig

The Lure of the Moonflower

Portugal, December 1807. Jack Reid, the British agent known as the Moonflower (formerly the French agent known as the Moonflower), has been stationed in Portugal and is awaiting his new contact. He does not expect to be paired with a woman—especially not the legendary Pink Carnation.

All of Portugal believes that the royal family departed for Brazil just before the French troops marched into Lisbon. Only the English government knows that mad seventy-three-year-old Queen Maria was spirited away by a group of loyalists determined to rally a resistance. But as the French garrison scours the countryside, it’s only a matter of time before she’s found and taken.

It’s up to Jane to find her first and ensure her safety. But she has no knowledge of Portugal or the language. Though she is loath to admit it, she needs the Moonflower. Operating alone has taught her to respect her own limitations. But she knows better than to show weakness around the Moonflower—an agent with a reputation for brilliance, a tendency toward insubordination, and a history of going rogue.
