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!

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.

Hold On To Your Hearts

By Kathy Rouchelle
Quite an amazing story filled with love, heartbreak, mystery, suspense and did I mention love. This book is very well written and just the way I like them, not that much filler but just enough descriptions to give you what you need at the moment. (I really dislike a bunch of descriptions). The storyline is wonderful and quite sad at the beginning, with some really touching moments in-between. I loved the premise of this story and was not surprised at the outcome but loved it just the same and was extremely happy with it. The characters are so very well developed and a bit complex given their past, but I loved them so very much. His heartbreak, her amnesia! They are wonderful, the supporting characters are just as wonderful. I just finished reading this book this morning and it the feelings are still with me. I loved this book so much that I may just read it again very soon.

It only took one look into his eyes for her to know she was in trouble.
Adam Bricklin has heard the melody in his head for years, the melody that told him if a decision was right or wrong. When he met Ragan Newlin, the song told him she was the one. He was devastated when circumstances tore them apart. It had taken three years for Adam to finally move past the heartbreak he suffered when Ragan left town in the middle of the night. No note, no email, no text. She was just gone. Now he has a new girlfriend, a new album in the works, and his daughter is doing well in school. Until the day Ragan returned to Fairfield Corners.
Ragan came home to celebrate her parents’ anniversary, hoping they would forgive her for not telling them about her marriage or her son. When she discovered that Adam was still living in Fairfield Corners she hoped her secrets were safe; secrets that drove her away three years ago, secrets that could change their lives forever.

Fantastic Second Chance Romance!!!

I really enjoyed the first book in the Fairfield Corner’s series but Ragan’s Song totally blew me away. This was such a fantastic second chance romance.

Ragan left 3 years earlier with no explanation or goodbye leaving Adam to wonder what it was that drove her away. 3 years later & she is returning to Fairfield Corners for her parent’s anniversary party with her son, Skylar in tow. The weather takes a turn for the worse & soon she has an encounter with deer and ends up in the river. With no time to settle back into small-town mentality her past is thrust upon when her scorned lover Adam comes to their rescue.

Adam can’t believe she’s back and expects some answers. Ragan has a deep dark secret that she knows will have to come to light but she must guard her heart against Adam again in order to keep him safe.

Oh man, the twists & turns in this book. It just came together so beautifully.

Will these two work out their past issues & see what is right in front of them.

Definite must-read book!!!

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.
