Legacy of Evil
One battle, one outcome. Who will win? Good or evil?
When a wild mustang is shot in Montana, renowned horse whisperer and telepath, Emma Horserider, is called in to calm the herd and find out what happened. Once on scene she is almost killed by a bullet-spewing drone, and calls her black ops brother for back-up.
Emma’s help roars into her life covered in tattoos and riding a Harley. Remote viewer Bronco Winchester takes the assignment because he is ordered to, but he wonders what type of assistance, his boss’s sister needs. That is until he sees Emma, a valiant Warrior Woman proud of her Crow heritage.
Posing as a married couple, Emma and Bronco go undercover to infiltrate and stop a hate group. Both are anxious enough without the now growing attachment they feel for one another. When the lives of many are on the line, they are not sure if they will live or die—let alone have a chance at love.

Review

LEGACY OF EVIL is a highly entertaining and enjoyable story, also educational for me, because like Bronco, I’ve had a bad education in Native American stuff. I learned a lot in this book, and I especially like the Indian telegraph. There’s a kind of homey and sense of belonging in being part of a community like Emma’s. There’s also a certain subtle humor threading throughout the story that made me chuckle or at times, outright laugh out loud.

Sharon Buchbinder has created an unforgettable heroine in Emma Horserider. She’s bold and brave and I’m thoroughly jealous of her ability to communicate with horses and dogs. I love Bronco as well. These characters are fleshed-out and three-dimensional, well-rounded with layers that are peeled open as the story unfolds. They’re certainly different from most characters in the books I usually read.

Speaking of characters, there are noteworthy secondary characters here like Stephanie (Emma’s cousin), Beautiful Blackfeather (Emma’s ancestor) and let’s not forget Gaucho the bobcat! I’m not saying more; let’s just say you have to read this to appreciate them.

Overall, entertaining and unforgettable characters make this a recommended read!

Review: The Mortal Falls by Anna Durand

garden

I enjoyed reading The Mortal Falls a lot; I couldn’t put it down. A riveting story, this book was super entertaining with lots of adventure and murder and suspense and romance. Let’s not forget the paranormal elements, and this story has superb worldbuilding that I love to read more about.

The characters quickly worm their way into your heart, and you get invested in them and their future. Will Lindsay and Nevan get their HEA? Will Nevan be free of his contract from the evil king? Who was murdered and will Lindsay be implicated? What’s up with Travis and what’s the story with Lindsay’s ex, who was also…um, spoiler, I guess, so I’ll just stop there. Continue reading

My Top Ten of 2015

If I could give it 10 stars, I would!

PLAYING WITH FIRE is the magnificent, hot hot hot follow up to Flirting with Fire. What makes it hot? Dominant hero, saucy-mouthed heroine, power games in and out of the bedroom. Combine that with witty dialogue, and you’re in for an amazing ride you don’t want to end!

This book is so so good that I wonder how the author could top this one. Still, I’m willing to see her try with Wyatt’s book, Sparking the Fire.

———————————————————————–

BLURRED LINES is a raw, no-holds-barred portrayal of two best friends making the choice to become lovers, and it’s the best I’ve ever read!

There was no slow moment in the story; the stakes got progressively higher with each chapter, along with the tension. The pace was just right, and the writing flowed smoothly. The characters were empathetic, flawed and believable, and together, they were hot hot hot! There was no superfluous intimate scene, and I love that!

Full review here. Continue reading

Review: Miss Landon and Aubranael by Charlotte E. English

garden

I love historical romance, and the blurb seems to hint at this being an endearing story (how could it not with a hero with a disfigured face?), I grabbed the chance to read this story, and imagine my surprise and delight when it was so much more than I expected!

Miss Sophy Landon has no prospects for a good marriage, but her kindness earns her passage to a completely different world where she met Aubranael, a man with a disfigured face with whom she felt…something. Certainly, when she went back home, she couldn’t stop thinking about him! Alas, she can only stay a day, and so they parted. But each couldn’t stop thinking about the other, and when chance came that Aubranael may be able to visit her in her hometown, he grabbed at the chance, especially when he could court her with a (temporary) change to his face, making him as handsome as any maiden could wish for her suitor to be. Would Aubranael succeed in winning Sophy? What happens when the truth is out? Continue reading

Review: Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh

garden

ARCHANGEL’S CONSORT continues where Archangel’s Kiss left off, about 3 to 4 months after the stunning fight that left Beijing a crater.

Here, we see Elena and Raphael continue to develop and build the foundation of their relationship. Raphael still continues to push at boundaries, but Elena more than held her ground on those things that she felt are very important to her. Aside from that, however, they have to deal with the effects of Raphael’s mother possibly rising from her Sleep, and the effects are felt worldwide–weather disturbances, earthquakes, tsunami, vampires running rampant, and Raphael in the grip of a rage that Elena had never seen before and that left her terrified and fighting for her Archangel.

Review: Archangel’s Kiss by Nalini Singh

garden

ARCHANGEL’S KISS continues from where Angels’ Blood left off with Elena waking from her year-long coma (I prefer to think of it as healing sleep) to rise as a newly-made angel. Wow.

Didn’t see that coming, right?

Well played, Ms. Singh. Continue reading

Review: Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh

garden

I’ve heard so much about this series, and ANGELS’ BLOOD far surpassed my expectations! Two thumbs up!

Elena Devereaux, Guild Hunter extraordinaire, was contracted by Raphael, Archangel of New York, to hunt for an archangel gone rogue. While Elena is very good at her job, this is one time she may be in over her head…

Elena is strong, smart, gutsy. She’s got a lot of backbone to be able to stand up to Raphael, who of course admires warrior women. She doesn’t back down from him, especially on things that are important to her, and perhaps that’s what draws Raphael to her, because as a powerful archangel who’s lived for fifteen hundred years, I imagine most humans, vamps and angels are too terrified to say anything against him. One thing that endears Elena to me is her sense of wonder whenever she sees angel wings, and how beautiful she finds them. It makes her relatable, more human and less of that lethal, deadly hunter.
