I heard from Maggie Mae Gallagher that RomCon was wonderful this year and she’s going to be the Cub Reporter for the event. We’ll be hearing from Maggie later this week about the great time I missed (well, maybe next year). Until then, the WW Ladies have some more reads to share with us.
Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong
Read by joysann
Savannah, to whom magic has always come so easily, has lost her powers, and with a witch hunter out to kill her, she’s learning to appreciate the ordinary human defense arts she was encouraged to reluctantly learn. As Savannah tries to turn the tables on her pursuer, she, Adam and her other friends and family, discover a much more dangerous plot to expose supernaturals to the human world.
I always love the Otherworld series, enjoying each main character as much as the next, as different from each other as they are. It’s been fun watching Savannah mature from childhood, and this story is exciting and tantalizing. With the series coming to a dramatic climax in the next book, Spell Bound is the perfect windup for that final pitch.
Bunco Babes Gone Wild by Maria Geraci
Read by Heidi
Georgia Meyer was expecting a proposal, but got a calculator instead from her boyfriend Spencer. She decides to go visit her sister Friday in Whispering Bay, Florida and work things out in her head. Soon she is swept up with Frida, her Bunco friends and hunky Dave Hernandez, and her head is going as fast as her heart.
I was wishing the whole time that Dave Hernandez entered the picture, that I could meet him in person. The heat that he and Georgia created was more than the heat in the Midwest right now. Phew!! The Bunco Babes never disappoint with fun, gossip and friendship. I think I need another cold drink to cool down from this book!
With No Remorse by Cindy Gerard
Read by Ashley
Black Ops specialist, Luke Colter is supposed to be on a relaxing and quiet vacation in Peru. However, hired thugs try to kidnap world famous supermodel Valentina, right in front of Luke, and now Luke must do everything in his power to protect her. Luke enlists the help of his Black Ops team members and together they must bring down an international gun smuggling alliance and protect Valentina.
This sixth book, in the Black Ops Inc, novels is a rapid adventure mixed with a spicy romance. It took me on a fiery thrill ride from the first page to the last!
Visions of Magic by Regan Hasting
Read by Shelby
Shea Jameson has gotten wrapped into a plot against magic that she never wanted a part in, but her ancestry threw in her lap along with an Eternal (who saves her from an angry mob after she kills a man with her awakening powers). He says he is destined to be her mate and she has a duty to find an ancient artifact as part of the completion of an ancient spell and there
is nothing Shea can do about it. Shea escapes Torin, who she believes to be a nutcase, but comes to find out she needs him to help evade a witch, assassins and politicians, developing Shea’s powers, and becoming eternal mates.
This story was one of magic and action, an amazing combination; all amidst the developing love that envelopes the characters. I was especially engrossed with the characters as they learn and change. By the end all I wanted to do is pick up the next one and dive right in.
The Secret Desires of a Governess by Tiffany Clare
Read by Ashley
Abby, the youngest daughter of a Duke, decides that she doesn’t want to get trapped in a loveless, political marriage. So she chooses to be a Governess, to the Earl of Brendall’s young son. What Abby doesn’t expect is to begin a scandalous affair with Elliot, the Earl of Brendall. Almost from the moment they meet a sensual romance begins, but dark secrets from his past could destroy them both.
The Secret Desires of a Governess is an exceptional and memorable tale of a forbidden romance. I was unable to put down this heart-wrenching tale of true love.
Vampire in Atlantis by Alyssa Day
Read by Sophie
Just when Daniel, the powerful 11,000 year old vampire, feels he has nothing left to live for, his long lost love, Serai, an Atlantean princess meant to be the next queen, appears to him with a mission. They must find the Emperor, a stone from Poseidon’s trident, and save her sisters. Meanwhile, Daniel and Serai must worry about their rebel friends, avoiding angry Nereids, fighting to remain out of Atlantis, and trying not to get caught by the Paranormal Operations unit of government,
Vampire in Atlantis had me from the start! It was exciting, and something was absolutely always happening, be it nail-biting, sensual, or heart-warming. Alyssa has created a world where anything is possible, magic happens, and love conquers all—to me, it’s perfect.
Bottom Line: Today is National S’mores Day and I’ve fired up the grill. Graham crackers…check, marshmallows…check, Hershey bars…check, lots of wet washcloths…check.
