Kameron and Vanessa

I own both the eBook and the Audiobook – this review is written after listening to the audio version of this book.

This is my first book by this author, so I was unsure what to expect, I was not disappointed. The book starts with Travis Kameron the Alpha of the Crescent Moon Pack waking up in wolf form in a cage with no memory of how he got there – to make matters worse his senses have become dull but most importantly, he has lost the ability to shift back into his human form!

In the cage opposite, he could see a white wolf, a female with the most incredible green eyes, she was watching him but refused to answer when he tried to speak to her via a mental link. She was Vanessa Burns, she had been there for a long time, she didn’t know how long because the men keeping her there, kept drugging her. Her brother Aiden, the Alpha of the Outlander Pack was the only person she thought might be looking for her but had it been too long, had he given up by now? Vanessa feared she couldn’t last much longer, she’s been drugged so many times, they drugged her to wake up, to make her sleep, she’s been beaten countless times and shocked by a vicious shock collar just as many, but being raped by Dominic the leader of these men was the worst point of her captivity.

Dominic runs an illegal fighting ring and forces shifters to fight or die Vanessa has lost count of the lives she has taken to survive but she knows she’s getting weaker and soon she will be the one to die. Her greatest regret is that she will never see the pup she is carrying.

Over time a connection/bond forms between Travis and Vanessa, Travis leans which pack she is from, her father killed his father but was then killed by her brother. Her father was a cruel and terrible man who had made her life hell. Will Travis hold her father’s sins against her?

Days pass, they don’t know how many but the day comes when they are put in the ring together, they are supposed to fight to the death – but neither will fight the other. Then just as Dominic is about to shoot one of them they are rescued by her brother Aiden and members of his pack.

What follows is a moving and exciting story about love, betrayal, and learning to trust set against a background of family love, hate and distrust. A really well written and enthralling story.

The narration of this book by Rebecca Winder was excellently done, she managed to capture the essence of the characters together with their feelings which added to my enjoyment of this very well written paranormal love story.

“Will the deadly obsession of her past destroy her?
Chelsey Hopkins thought she had killed the man who abused her but when her desperate mark misses its aim, fear keeps her running. Years spent one step ahead of him, a man hell-bent on destroying her, had taught her that trust was a fragile illusion that she couldn’t afford, or it could kill her.
When she hits Sweet Valley, Georgia, Chelsey had no intention of staying long. Armed with scars and nightmares, she soon forges a new life, a new identity beneath layers of deceit and deception but her time is running out…
Ian St. Clair can see the pain in Chelsey’s eyes, the shattered turmoil in their dark depths. He craves nothing more than to keep her safe. He knows she wants to escape her past and he will stop at nothing to show her that she belongs in the small community, with him.
Can he convince her of her place before she disappears, or will his keeping her there allow a madman to finally catch his prey?”

Will he find her?

Wow! So I received this book as ARC for an honest review. I never heard of Desiree Scott, but after reading Chasing Chelsey I am a fan. This book drew me in from the very first page. The story is about. The girl who is running from her past. She does not let anyone come close, cause when he does they end up missing or dead. She meets the St. CLAIR brothers and they are vowing never to let anyone hurt her. I read this book in 1 day. Could not put it down needed to know what happens next.

Desperate to escape, Connie returns to Vail Mountain, the one place she had truly felt alive. However, her troubles soon follow her, and she gets more than she bargained for as she fights not only her past but the intense feelings that one newly elected sheriff arouses in her.

He resigns from the police force after a drug bust goes wrong, landing himself in the hospital to face his mortality alone. Uncertain about the direction of his life, he learns of the new sheriff position on Vail Mountain and takes a gigantic leap of faith—faith that he isn’t making a big mistake. Armed with nothing but a few possessions, Jacob relocates, only to find himself falling hard for a woman whose blue eyes speak of pain and loneliness.
As he battles his worst nightmare, can Jacob show her there is more to life than what they have been dealt and convince her that with him, nothing is impossible?

The third part of a very well written trilogy. Desiree is a very talented writer and I strongly recommend this book along with her others.

While it’s not normally the sort of book I’d read, I read the first book, liked it so much, I went onto the second and now the third. I can’t think of anything wrong with it at all and it was a very enjoyable read.

As Mother Nature raged, Joan was soon overcome by the feelings a complete stranger evoked in her, causing her to reevaluate her own life. Through the blizzard and stranded at the resort, death was imminent for any who would try to leave. Despite loss and secrets, can two people find love and happiness again?

Light the fire, grab the cocoa, and get ready for a great read!

Stranded on Vail Mountain is a well-written, gripping, fast-paced novella. I love short reads, especially those which grab the reader by the seat of the pants from the first line to the last – this one delivers! I’ve read this story twice and will read it again. This was my first read of this author’s works. I look forward to reading much more from her. I don’t write reviews often, but some stories are too good not to share.

Abuse, Trafficking, and Alpha Shifters

A dead body hitting the floor and Nikki hiding under covers..Abused by her mob husband for 10 years she is beaten down..but she knows her time is up..he killed his first wife and she has a premonition she will be killed soon.
She sneaks away drugging him, alls a friend(who is a shifter and who was a close friend 10 yrs prior), but is saved by Brett and Zak, members of her friends pack…Brett a bear as an enforcer in a pack of wolves.
This is the second book in the series with the alpha and his mate the focus of the first book. They can be read separately, but enjoy the first as well.
The writing draws you into the horror of Nikki’s husband and the tenderness and protectiveness of the pack and Brett who soon recognizes Nikki as his mate.
The narrator did a fantastic job with the voice…Nikki’s soft and injured voice and the power in the males..evil for her husband.
Enjoy an action-packed and romantic story!

The plot of the story was like a roller coaster

I thought this novel was outstanding. The plot of the story was like a roller coaster, it went up and down and you never want it to stop. As I was reading, the characters felt like family and I cared about every one of them. I would recommend this series and I can’t wait until part two comes out.
