Unclaimed-300-2
My Thoughts: This is fabulous book in the series. I love the dynamic tension between Dominic and Tatiana. They are both stubborn and loyal to their people, desires and goals. They are a power duo and you can’t help but enjoy all the barbs back and forth. This book at me hooked from the beginning. Ms. Humphreys’ does an amazing job bringing back all of our characters from previous books and finding out who is trying to kill hybrids. This book embodies why I find paranormals fun and hot! This is a sizzling book that keeps you hooked from the beginning to the end. Also, there is a lot of Stephen in this book and we learn more about who his mate is which isn’t as it seems.

My Top Reads for 2013, Part 1

Screen shot 2013-11-24 at 1.10.53 PMI had a goal this year to read 125 NEW books and I have reached my goal. I am going to post two blogs with my top reads for 2013. Yes, two blogs. I did read 125 books this year and felt I couldn’t pick five books for the amount I read. Not all the books are brand new this year but some that have been out for a long time, and they are new to me. Many I have done reviews on as well. I will post Part 2 later in the week.

2098340Wicked at Heart by Danelle Harmon: This is the first book I’ve read by Danelle Harmon and it won’t be the last. I was in a book coma for a few days after reading this book. This book keeps you guessing to the very last minute. You will experience every emotion while you read it. There are many twist and turns that you honestly don’t see coming. The love the story between Damon and Gwyneth is one for the times. I don’t have enough words to describe how wonderful this book really is.

9645276Midnight’s Wild Passions by Anna Campbell: I spent a good part of my summer devouring Anna Campbell’s books (author interview to come soon!). She is a fabulous writer and I will be auto by anything she writes. This book is about a man getting revenge and sharp tongue companion that will stop at nothing to protect her charge. This book has adventure, lots of laughs and romance.

13489922The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan: Another auto buy author! Take a young lady that is going to the extreme to protect her sister and you’ve got a heroine you instantly love and are cheering for. This book is hilarious. The lengths that the heroine goes to, to keep the male population away from her is remarkable and I love her strength. It’s a great read with a wonderful romantic element with Oliver.

12532672Untouched by Sara Humphreys: This is the second paranormal romance I’ve read and it is just as amazing as the first book that I read (which was a top summer read for me). This story is about a woman who cannot touch others without pain and seeing visions of that specific person. Makes life lonely not being able to touch anyone. Ms. Humphreys’ writes her characters with a lot of depth that makes her stories so fun to read.

15847315Lady of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle: Don’t let the title of this book throw you off. This book is about a long friendship with strong feelings that are ignored and because they have been ignore there is pain for the H/h. There is so much emotion of every kind that you don’t want to put it down becuase you are waiting for the next type of emotion to hit you. Ms. Marvelle pushes the emotional boundaries in this book and it made it a ever better read.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00034]Final Piece by Maggi Myers: This is not a historical romance but a romance. It is VERY emotional. It deals with a young woman that has experience sexual abuse very young but overcomes that and puts the pieces of her life back together with help from a friend. This is not just about a young lady but about a family healing. It’s a powerful read that is full of hope. It is written beautifully. You will want to have your box of tissues next to you as you read this story.

12240496

The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley: Many of you that follow this blog know that I will drop everything (nearly) to start reading a book about the Mackenzie’s. This book was no exception. I loved it. Daniel Mackenzie has been in every book from the beginning of this series as a young man in his early teens. It was a wonderful read that is about the beginning of the Industrial Revolution with many inventors popping up. It was an exciting romantic read with all the fabulous Jennifer Ashley flair.

Happy Reading and stay tuned for Part 2 later in the week.

My Summer Favorites

As I approach the Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end of summer I realized I had an amazing summer of reading. Take a look below at what were my favorites between Memorial Day (end of May) and Labor Day (beginning of Sept). If you have some time this weekend enjoy one of these books! I know many of them will be on my to read again list. The list is in the order of when I read them this summer. Enjoy!

15724338Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare:  This historical romance was hilarious. I had so many laugh out moments that I lost count. The H/h have a charisma that leaves you craving more. I had a great time reading this. I can guarantee there will be moments you will want to share the one-liners you’ll read. It is impossible not to like this book. You will smile a lot while reading it. This is my favorite book by Tessa Dare.

13638570Out of Breath by Rebecca Donovan: The emotional hell Rebecca Donovan put me through to read how Emma and Evan make it gave me at least sixteen new strands of gray hair. It was an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute of it. *For this book you will want to go back and read the first book in the series, Reason to Breath. As cliche as it might sound there were moments I had to stop and catch my breath.

perf5.000x8.000.inddThe Letter by Sandra Owens: I read this book in one day. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This book was written in a way that captured my heart and soul. I had never been completely engulfed in a story the way I was when reading The Letter. In my review I stated if you could only read only one historical romance this would be it. Really? Who would limit themselves to one historical romance? It was that powerful.

81FVqrfzr5L._SL1500_Desire Wear Diamonds by Renee Bernard: Oh! I have waited for what seems like forever to find out who was the Jackal was that plagued the Jaded. It was an exciting conclusion to a fabulous series. Can I say having all six men in one story was aaaamazing! There is a quite a bit of action with all the usual Renee Bernard flare she puts into her stories. NEWS FLASH- it will be on sale ($0.99) this weekend Aug. 30, Aug. 31 & Sept. 1. So if you are still waiting to pick up you should and read it this weekend! I bet you’ll want to go back and start from beginning with Revenge Wears Rubies, to get the full picture of the Jaded.

10880685Unleashed by Sara Humpreys: Yes! I added a paranormal to my list of favorites this summer. This is uncharted waters for me but I am so happy I stepped outside my reading comfort zone for this. I loved it! It isn’t over the top paranormal. It really is a great romance with really fun characters (and it’s a series!). If you are unsure about paranormal I would start with this book and see where it takes you. I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

1502191Untouched by Anna Campbell: Anna Campbell is an author I discovered halfway through the summer and I instantly felt that author/reader connection. I spent a good portion of my summer reading her books. This story was very dark and touching. The H/h have some big issues that need to be overcome and there are moments you are not sure if theses two will survive. I had moments where my heart just ached for these characters. It’s a beautifully written romantic story with twist and turns.

It was an wonderful summer full of reading. Many of the books listed here have full reviews on my blog. If you want more information please check them out.

Happy Reading!

Review: Unleashed (The Amoveo Legend #1) by Sara Humphreys

Readers, have you noticed my reviews have been about Historical Romance stories? It is obvious I have slight addiction, ok maybe more like an obsession, but sometimes you just need to step away from the rakes and rogues and read something new. And thanks to a fabulous friend I did just that and read Unleashed by Sara Humphreys and I am so happy I did!

10880685

Samantha Jane Logan is an artist living in New York City that has been haunted by the same of dreams. In her dreams there is a man, but she can never quite see who he is, but she is drawn to him. Her life in NYC is just not going as she pleases, with theses intense dreams creeping in every night she longs for and sense she needs to be there. Samantha packs her VW Red Bug and heads home to Rhode Island and back to the comforts of her childhood home, with her Nonie (grandmother).

Malcolm Drew is an Amoveo of the Eagle Clan. He is devastatingly handsome and has been waiting for Samantha to come home and to him. Malcolm has been waiting for what seems forever for his mate to return, so they can bond or he will risk losing his powers and eventually his life. He is drawn by the force that is Samantha, but he is at a disadvantage as his mate has no idea what she is and what they are to one another. Can Malcolm convince her of what and who she is for them to bond, before all is lost?

The fascinating world of Amoveo have ten clans that have been around just as long or longer than humans. There are ten clans among the Amoveo; bears, coyotes, eagles, foxes, gryfalcon, lions, tigers and wolf, but the wolf clan is nearly extinct. Samantha is the last of the Wolf Clan and she is a hybrid being half human as well. Malcolm spends a good part of the story telling Samantha about he Amoveo. It is important to understand the history to understand why their mating and love is so strong and hypnotic. Samantha learns a lot of fun interesting characteristics the Amoveo have, but along with the fun there is danger lurking about. She is informed that it isn’t just peace harmony for Amoveo kind. The Caedo is a group of people that have made it their mission in life to kill hybrids like Samantha.  Samantha is at crossroads; she is being pulled to Malcolm at a magnetic pace, but she doesn’t want to lose herself and further more it is hard to accept that she is half wolf. On the heals of trying to understand and accept all these crazy developments there is the Caedo trying to kill her, which would mean killing Malcolm as well.

I really enjoyed this book. This is a whole new world for me and I like it. There is a true love story here with amazing depth characters that grow on you through out the story. The secondary characters are fun as well. Nonie, Samantha’s Grandmother is witty and a spitfire much like Samantha and adds a warmth to the story. Davis, Malcolm’s butler is more than just a butler he is a friend and knows Malcolm history. He reminds me of the awesome Alfred, Batman’s butler. We meet a few of Malcolm’s shifter friends; a fox, coyote and gryfalcon. Which I am sure they will have stories to come. Also, the Prince known as Richard the wise one. Theses characters add to the over depth of the story. Like I said this is love story that is full of steamy scenes, and there is a mystery as well!  I will be reading the next book in the series very soon to learn more about what is going on with Amoveo clans.

You can purchase this book and Amazon or B&N.
