Dancing With His Heart
Author: Katherine Warwick
Publish Date: 1st edition 2006
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

Playboy and philanthropist, Alex offers first class sponsorship to Lauren and her dance partner. Given their tumultous past, Lauren is suspicious. Without resources, the single mother of a handicapped child is forced to take Alex's offer. His plan is to prove that he's changed, and win her heart. But trust is not easily won even with the sizzling sparks the two of them ignite on and off the dance floor, and they both face more trouble when a dark figure from their past shows up with devious intentions for them both. 

Welcome Katherine to Page Flipperz.

(( hands Kath a can of Rockstar and a cupcake ))

Kat : Katherine what inspired you to write Dancing with his heart ?
Katherine : DWHH is part of a ballroom dance series I wrote. Also, it was my first book dealing with autism. ( HEAVENLY being my second ) I wanted to explore the difficulties of being a single mother trying to make it in the world with a handicapped child.

Kat : Its about Ballroom dancing , do you dance yourself, and why about Ballroom dancing ?
Katherine : I DO dance and I LOVE to dance. I thought the ballroom dance world was so fascinating - it's in its own world - that it would be great to explore, hence the series. Plus, ballroom is so HOT. The intimacy adds wonderfully to a romance storyline.

**Kat - (( Oh my yes I have to agree Katherine, Id love to dance, I did it when I was younger with my nan, for years, and its seems so romantic. ))

Kat : When did you write it , how long did it take?
Katherine : I wrote it when I first started writing ( about 8 years ago ) and it takes me about 3-4 months to write a book.

Kat : Did you relvolve your characters around anyone in particular in the book ?
Katherine : The only similarities to real people in the book are the autistic child ( again, taken from my own experience having a child with autism ) and the emotional reactions of Lauren to her child's handicap.

Kat : You have just released DWHH  in e format when or will it be released in print?
Katherine : DWHH is available in both paperback and ebook.

Kat : When writing do you enjoy listening to music -  and if so does it have to suit the book your writing..?
Katherine : Yes, I listen to music when I write and DWHH has a hot soundtrack with lots of tense music that encouraged the moments between Alex and Lauren to heat up..

Id like to thank Katherine today for taking the time for my interview. Katherine also writes under the name Jennifer Laurens. She has some wonderful books out there. I have completley enjoyed them all , from Ya to romance.

** Coyote Night ** by Danielle D Smith

One Skrike and your gone !!!

Now you wandering why the first liner !! Ill Let you in on  a little secert - After you have read Danielle's book Coyote Night,, Im sure you will never go back..You will search Goodreads for her ** acutally * Skriker** and add her books just to read those rauncy sex scenes between Rosie and Skriker !! Are they hot !! They are smokin - like I said One Skrike and you will be gone !! Hooked line n sinker !! An interesting storyline with all aspects of a great read !!

I read Danielle's book as a beta and loved it. I have not read any of the previous ones, and found this did not affect the way I enjoyed this one, if anything Im even more keen to read the others now.

Coyote Night is a continuous from Book one,   ** Black Dog and Rebel Rose,** and would be a great idea to read this one to give you back ground information into how Rose and Skriker first met,, believe me she was not  out for  his goodies back then, she was out to kill him!!

Here is the book cover ** Maybe not your kinda cover - if your a cover picka !!  But keep in mind that Dani not only writes she also illustrates !!!! and this  Fits Rose perfectly !  I really like it !!! Why Because its different and Dani is very tallented in more ways than one  and very brave to venture into what she loves to do !! Dont we all wish this lol !!

Here is  the blurb and my review !!

SUMMARY (from Goodreads)

Skriker, half-demon bad boy, and his Nephil love, Rose, are inseperable. They've been through thick and thin, thin and thinnerand the hunt is calling them once again. Rumor of a skinwalker draws the notorious pair to Shiprock, New Mexico, a place sacred to the Navajo and a site of enormous supernatural power. The classic Route 66 awaits them and their Harleys, as do open stretches of desert where they can camp under the stars and rut like horny teenagers…the chance of slaying the skinwalker is simply the icing on Skriker’s gore-soaked cake. But when they finally cross paths with the enemy, the ancient desert monster develops an insatiable desire to capture Rose and posess herleaving Skriker fighting with all he's got to keep the love of his life from being snatched from his arms forever.

My thoughts ... ** WIpes forhead -- coughs ** straightens oneself !!

Danielle D Smith has put forwards a story revolving around the Navajo Culture, one in which she has researched well, and this comes forth in the read. I must say it was an interesting culture, and well described and a story written well..

We have Rose and Skriker on the hunt for an Ancient Desert monster, who is stealing young children for there souls. In time this skinwalker wants to add Rose to his list... and Skriker puts forward The Devil inside ** reminds me that song ** the devil inside ** lol.. - to hunt down the skinwalker, kill and destroy it and save the one he loves. He calls upon a Hellhound, and all fury is put forward. Skriker will find her ,,, if its the last thing he does..

Danielle has somehow created a dark atmosphere and given it light. The story has  dark aspects in it, evil and also a lighter side of love and devotion.

Descriptions and emotions are well portrayed, if your a visual reader, Im sure you will find her descriptions crisp and sharp and easily to be envisaged.. ** blushes** even the norty ones !!

Kick arse smexy, Half Demon - Bad boy and his Hot arse - big busted babe -  his Nephil-  Rose: together venture into grounds unknown. Together In Coyote night , they not only get down n dirty, but Im sure the heavens above can see the sparks from the sheer heat and current these pair generate on root 66. A mission Im sure they both wont forget !

The sex is hot !!! Skriker is definetly one horny black dog and Rose his  kitten taking her just deserts !!!! The pair have smoking chemistry adding heat and passion throughout this read.. ** after all it is erotic **
* Yes they f**K like teenagers just cant get enough !! But this meshs well with the characters and there traits.. After all we have ** Black Dog and Rebel Rose ** a concution that only ends up an explosion ! ** if ya get my drift !! **

The storyline is well paced,  we have kick arse action and chapters that run smoothly-  a well paced read but Im sure you will find that certain pages will leave a smouldering trail from reading frisly ** wink wink **

The dialogue flows fluently - a great cast of characters Im sure you will enjoy , and a plot Im sure that will have your interest piqued till the very end. So yes,, its not only hot sex, erotic and a tad raunchy but also a great storyline to boot  filled with kick arse action !! A receipe for a great read !

A quickee Im sure you wont forget in a hurry ** grins ** ......

At only $1-99 a bargin !!

 A read -  Im sure that you will not only enjoy, but have you searching for the The Story behind The Black Dog and Rebel Rose !!

4 1/2  hot pokkkers !!!

Amazon link to buy ..... Coyote Night $1-99 !!

Dancing with His Heart by Katherine Warwick

Thanks to Mindy over at Forbidden Reviews. for letting me join Katherines book Tour for Dancing with his Heart. It was a very hearfelt  book filled with lots of goodies.

This year I've ventured out and read all types of Genres !!!  I was lucky enough to have read Dancing with His Heart and I loved it !!!! Katherine has entwined, ballroom dancing, love and a little girl with autism into this read and I must say I enjoyed all aspects !! Here is the cover and blurb and my review and thoughts ...

Dancing With His Heart
Author: Katherine Warwick
Publish Date: 1st edition 2006
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

Playboy and philanthropist, Alex offers first class sponsorship to Lauren and her dance partner. Given their tumultous past, Lauren is suspicious. Without resources, the single mother of a handicapped child is forced to take Alex's offer. His plan is to prove that he's changed, and win her heart. But trust is not easily won even with the sizzling sparks the two of them ignite on and off the dance floor, and they both face more trouble when a dark figure from their past shows up with devious intentions for them both.

My Review ;)

Playboy and Philanthropist Alex, offers  Lauren and her partner sponsorship for their  ball room dancing. An offer of a life time - To be trained by the best instructor, dressed in divine sparkly attire, and to be financially stable in life.

 Sigh... I so enjoy a romantic read, this story was filled with heartache, heartfelt moments and moments where you had to wipe that lonely tear from falling. Moments where you sighed, giggled and also wandered. Why?  An enjoyable read, from beginning to end, I just couldn’t put it down.
 It dealt with the life of a single mother dealing with her loss in life, and the heartache of bringing a child into the world alone with autism.

 Life wasn’t meant to be easy for anyone, but Lauren often wondered why she was dealt this card - Her daily dealings with life, her daughter and her passion. Somehow no matter what, she dealt with it all, and moved on with life, to love and enjoy her precious daughter in which the way god gave her and also find time to enjoy her passion in life - to dance.

 I liked the way Katherine wove details about Autism into this read, giving the insight to just a little of the out comings of dealing with a child with a disability. But also entwining that there can be happiness as well as moments where you wander and ponder. I also enjoyed the information into the side of ballroom dancing, this I found different I as I have never danced, but she made it sounds magical and romantic. Makes me want to start up, just for the sheer romance of it all.

The plot was fluent and straight forward, weaving Laurens love for dance, her love for her daughter and a passion that she wasn’t so willing to succumb to.
The main characters meshed well, their love was sizzling and hot, I could almost see steam coming off Alex at certain times, his lust, and love for Lauren was that pronounced. As Always  He was a gentleman, right till the end, showing her he could love her and Bekah  and all that came with. He was  willing to wait just to be with her and show her how much he loved her. ** Who said that chivalry is dead ** ??

Lauren a caring and loving character, found it hard to let Alex in, mistrust due to past dealings, in time she realized he had her best interest at heart. The love was sensual, warming and made you feel all gooey inside.. The descriptions were intoxicating - the scents and emotions well portrayed. Overall, a wonderful read, filled with dance, love and family and possibilities for a happy future no matter the outcome you were dealt with.

Dialogue and plot were well outlined and full of all the goodies one could love in a romance. Characters true to life and a fluent and well paced read ,  never a dull moment. Beautifully woven to drag the reader into the book and showing us emotion and depth like poetry. Katherine always has that way with her books, you get engrossed in the read, you feel like honey to  bee.

I have enjoyed all of Katherines  books and she never dissapoints, her passion to write is shown in her work and from my personal point of view I enjoy every word she puts on paper.

A Warrior's Witch by Stacey Kennedy

A Warriors Witch ( An Otherworld Romance is a spin off from Stacey's previous series - The Willow - The Magical Sword Series .)  In this book we travel with Zia - The Master of The Witches and Talon - The Master of the Guardians to discover who murdered Whitlyn a former world Guardian, we  also find Talon redefining whats important in life.

Here is the Gorgus Book cover ** Cover Love ** and the Blurb ,,, then my Thoughts ;)

Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.

As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.

Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart.

My Thoughts
Zia is the Master of the Witches and Talon the Master of the Guardians, they are sent to Chicago to investigate the suicide of Whitlyn- a former other world Guardian and the mother of Talons son - Kyden. As they delve into the mysterious death, they uncover more than they ever anticipated. Whitlyn had another side to her, she delves into the world of BDSM, and unbeknown this may have caused her death or the reasoning behind it. - There is a killer trying to control the supernatural in Chicago, how and why must read to find out! It only gets better...
During their mission Talon and Zia discover their relationship and explore more than your average day Vanilla sex. They are introduced to the world of BDSM and Zia is intrigued!!! Talon rethinks his loyalties in life and discoveries are made in more ways than one.

Review ;)
I have not read Stacey's previous series with these characters, so the past relationship between Talon and Zia I am blind to. But saying that, it didn’t affect the way in which I enjoyed this steamy romance - suspense at all. It contained a great balance of Action and romance, traces of humor and a well paced and certainly intriguing storyline with a twist... ** wink wink **

This story contained sex ** smoking by the way lol ** - light traces of BDSM ** wink wink ** (Who doesn’t like a little bit of heat in a read...) It definitely spiced the romance between the two main characters and had me needing to reach for that cold glass of water. ** grins ** Stacey surely does know how to deliver the heat in her reads, if I had to rate the heat I’d say go the Hot Pepperoni!! Yes your tongue will be on fire lol. !!!

Stacey delivers poetic emotions, one that will leave you sad and teary, humor where you find yourself giggling, ** looks around to make sure no one was watching ** love, sadness and happiness. Scenes in which you can envisage and fluent flowing dialogue. The romance, and action where equally balanced not too much of one or the other, evened out nicely for the reader to enjoy!

The Main characters radiate enough heat to light there fires, let alone yours too!!!! The love is sweet, full of chemistry and taken to another level in this story.
A Warrior's Witch is filled with a tortured hero, who has qualms with himself and a strong willed heroine whom I’m sure you will fall in love with. A great cast of characters I’m sure you will enjoy.
I really enjoyed the storyline.. it contains enough suspense to keep your interest piqued right till the very end.
Stacey Kennedy is an author I will continue to follow and read and enjoy !! Stacey has many books out - With stunning covers and great stories do pop on over to facebook and check them out !! Links below !!

4/5 stars !

Betrayed Book Tour - Interview with Sykes !!

Id like to welcome everyone here today. Betrayed book Tours is Hosted by * Sassy Book Lover ** a big thanks to Stacey !! Huge congrads to Ednah Walters on her second book being released in The Guardian Legacy Series !!! Today we have Sykes with us to answer a few questions and an insight to his life as a Guardian !

Katrina walks into the room to find Sykes sprawled on her chair, feet up on her desk and eyes closed. Dressed in relaxed jeans and a gray T-shirt Kat had seen on a teen model on the cover of a trendy teen magazine, he looks like a fallen angel.
Not sure whether to wake him or not, Kat stares, wishing she were a teenager again and he was her…

Sykes (eyelids lift to reveal sparkling amber eyes): Don’t stop now. You were getting to the interesting part. I were your…?

Katrina (blushes and fakes outrage): You are reading my thoughts?

Sykes (feet leaves her desk then he stands up…six-foot-two of pure muscles, eyes still twinkling): Of course. It’s the best way to pass time. Wouldn’t you do it if you had a chance?

Katrina (laughs): You’re impossible.

Sykes (walks to where she stands and gives her a hug): That’s my middle name, Kat. Besides, I feel like I can be myself with you. Ednah thinks you rock.

Katrina (closes her eyes and inhales…ooh, he smells so good): She does?

Sykes (steps away from her and sits on her desk): Of course. You help her tell the world about our exploits. Anyone who sticks it to the High Council and their outdated rule about keeping our existence a secret is a friend in my book.

Katrina (chuckles and walks around to sit on her chair): Oh, okay. Then let’s break more rules.
Sykes (rubs his hands): Great! How about you and I run away forever.

Katrina (tries to give him a stern look but fails miserably): I think your friends might miss you. After all, you are a powerful Guardian.

Sykes (cocks his brow):  Who cares about being a Guardian when we can be with someone you love.

Katrina (blows out air): Okay, enough with the flirting. Let’s get down to business.

Sykes (eyes narrows): Have you been talking to Lil?

Kat: No. Why?

Sykes: She uses that same tone when she wants me to do something. (sighs dramatically then gets off the table and takes the chair across from Kat). Okay, I’m all yours. No, I could have been if you were adventurous, but since you choose to be difficult, we’ll do things your way. Ask me anything.

Katrina: First, would you like something to drink…tea, soda, coffee. Name your poison.

Sykes (gives her a slow smile): Pretty women, so I’m good.

Katrina (blushes again): You know we won’t get this interview done if you keep flirting with me. Lil won’t like it if we don’t do this.

Sykes (gives her a censoring look): Okay. Fine. I’ll behave.

Kat: She’s your Achilles’ heel, isn’t she?

Sykes (shakes his head): No comment. Next question.

Kat (picks up a paper from her desk and glances at it):  How does it feel to be a Guardian?
Sykes: Great! Train till you drop, live for hundreds of years, no worries about money and kick demons’ asses…I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Katrina:  What’s the coolest thing about your powers?

 Sykes (raises his right hand and a blue energy ball the size of a soccer ball materializes. He grins at Kat):  What do you think?

Katrina: I think you’re amazing.

Sykes (smirks): I can make it bigger if you like. Bigger is better, right?

Katrina (giggles): No, that’s fine. Let’s talk about Lil. She has all the abilities of a great guardian, and her powers are stronger than all of you guys’ combined. Does this bother you at all? (Raises eyebrows) Maybe even scare you a little.

Sykes (grins): No, I think powerful women are hot, so her powers don’t scare me. Besides, Lil is very caring and would never hurt anyone,  not deliberately.

Katrina: What do you think about the demons helping her? Are you worried?

Sykes (shakes his head): I’m not because if they step out of line, she’ll blast them straight to Tartarus. You have to see her battle to realize she takes no crap from demons.

Katrina: We know you like her. A lot. Can you tells us more about your feelings for her?

Sykes (grins): Who wouldn’t be attracted to Lil? She’s awesome, gorgeous and powerful.  Even Remy would have gone after her, but I told him she was mine the moment we met. I didn’t know about Bran at the time. (The smile disappears from his face, eyes become dull). He doesn’t deserve her.

Katrina (sighs): What would you tell her if you had a chance?

Sykes (stares at the ceiling then at Kat, his expression serious): I’d never make her shed a single tear or give her a reason to worry. (shudders then smiles). Enough with morbid topics. Ask me something fun.

Katrina: Why do you like to piss off Bran when you can just ignore him?

Sykes (smirks): It’s fun. And I like to remind him I’ll be there for Lil when she kicks him out.

Katrina: Do you think that will ever happen?

Sykes:  Oh yeah. I have a whole team of people rooting for me. Are you on my team?

Katrina: Of course.  What do you think about your group of guardians?

Sykes: The best team ever. Remy maybe anal but he’s a great strategist. Bran is more experienced than us and is great during a battle. The girls are awesome too, and hot.

Katrina: Would you date either of them?

Sykes: Hell no.

Katrina (laughing): Why not?

Sykes (shudders): They have too much attitude.

Katrina: Your favorite past time?

Sykes: Video games

Katrina: Favorite game?

Sykes: Halo, Call of Duty

Katrina: Favorite Food?

Sykes: Pasta.

Katrina: Favorite Movie?

Sykes: Apocalypse Now.

Katrina: Music

Sykes (sticks out a leg and pretends to play a guitar while nodding his head): Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Ac/dc, Steppenwolf…classic rock all the way.

Katrina: How long do you think the feud between demons and Guardians will last?

Sykes: Eternity, unless the powers-that-be decides enough is enough. I don’t mind. I’d rather go out smoking a demon or…(winks)…making out with a beautiful woman. Then there’s always the chance that Lil will come through and fulfill her destiny.

Katrina(laughing and gets up): I hope so, because we’re stuck right in the middle of your war. Thank you for this wonderful interview. We should do it again.

Sykes (jumps to his feet): Yes, let’s. (Walks to her side and gives her another hug) Remember, I’m available if you ever decide to be adventurous.

Katrina grins, as he steps away from her, winks then teleports.

Sigh - well that certainly was an experience I wont be forgotting .. (( twinkling in her eyes ))

Written in Blood by Elaina Lee

I read Written In Blood as review for Elaina Lee and must say it was my pleasure !! Be advised this book is for 18 ++ here is the blurb and my review ;)

Lyndi Crisdean is assigned one of the hardest cases in her career as a defense attorney. A serial murder case. Investigating is Alek Trevian, the lead investigator for the district attorney, and a handsome and supremely dangerous man. Lyndi finds herself in over her head when she chooses desire for Alek over common sense. If they're caught, Lyndi will lose everything she's worked for. Circumstances beyond her control pull her toward Alek, for he turns out to be the only one who can help when threats start to mount against her.

Lyndi may be the key Alek needs to bring down a murderous cult running loose in his city. When her beach house is broken into and a man begins to tail Lyndi, Alek can't help but reason Lyndi may be next on the cult's hitlist. The question is, will he discover the identity of the cult, keep her safe, and still win the case against the serial killer she's defending, all while losing a battle against the strong, untamable desire she alone ignites within him?

Review !!!

Lyndi Crisdean is assigned one of the hardest cases in her career as a defense attorney. Things couldn’t get any worse, she has been married four times all unsuccessful - working in the same office as her ex-husband and his tart, and then given a case of a serial killer. Lyndi takes the case well knowing that this man is well and truly guilty. But does the opposition have enough to prove so? Will history repeat itself ?

Alex Trevain is the lead investigator for the district attorney, hot , gorgeous and deviously dangerous and handsome. ** Danger in big red neon lights ** Lydni meets him ,, this is when her life changes ….

After a brief encounter out, Lyndi is groped by a stranger, handsomely -  dangerous, cocky and smug he has ignited Lyndi’s 11 month old stint of Celibacy. Lyndi is left to hanging - her pulse racing, out front of a nightclub with the tingling sensation of a kiss that not only intrigued her but ignited heat that had lain dormant.

Lyndi finds out the next day the man behind the tingling is Alek Trevin. Alek is the opposition – Lyndi must go against him to defend her client..

 Brief encounters become more often, and Lyndi finds herself drawn to Alek like a mouse to cheese, he tempts her , and they both know that forbidden it must be. Or is it ? Afterall they are both fighting the case for different reasons, one to get her client free and Alex to let him rot in jail.

Circumstances beyond Lyndi’s control take place – she finds herself turning to the one man who can help her when danger comes knocking. She is being tailed, her home being broken into and Alek thinks Lyndi maybe the key to unlocking the investigation into a cult, murdering innocent women. Reason unbeknown. Can they resist the urges of forbidden desires ? Can Alek keep Lyndi safe, still continue his defense and also control the turmoil of want building inside him ?

Will Lyndi be safe from both the beasts wanting her, both for different reasons, but will this cost her more than she ever bargained for ?
My Thoughts !

There are certain times of the night when one should NOT read Elaina Lee’s sensual romances - erotic fictions. ** blushes ** I found myself wanting Alek and Lydni to get it on real quick, I tend to think that the characters were not the only ones ( hot n bothered )** grabs cold glass of ice * grins !

I waited eagerly,  in anticipation  for Alek and Lydni to get down and dirty whilst also captivated with the onslaught of suspense growing within the story. Fast paced but definelty magnetic.

In Written in Blood we have two tortured souls, both suffering past hurts and wounds but strong within themselves to move on. I found Lydni a very realistic character, suffering from the mistakes she made, but moved on to try and rebuild her life the best way she knew how. No ones perfect right !

Alek wound himself in a tight cocoon not letting anyone in, his past haunted him and he was afraid to let someone in just to see the real soul. Lyndi and Alek complimented each other well. The chemistry was undeniable - the sex was enough to hit the ricta scale to ten, raw yet desirable and lustful. Elaina Lee had me friskily flipping these pages, eyes fluttering and toes curling just from the heat on these pages. ** Smokin hawt ** Erotic yet tasteful, steamy and definetly FORBIDDEN lol.. I’m sure the pages on my ereader where on fire !! I now I read this in record breaking time !! ** grins **

A well developed storyline filled with a great cast of characters, dialogue was crisp, the suspense and action well evened out and the romance ** sizzling ** with a *WHO DUN IT * you won’t see coming.

An intriguingly suspenseful story, overflowing with a abundance of goodies, not only to keep your interest piqued from beginning to end, but also your eye lashes curling in anticipation, and the hairs on all bodily areas standing on end. !!

A climax overflowing with conflicting emotions and poignantly compelling. ** sniff ** Geesh !!! Emotions that not only grab at your heart strings, ones that set your blood on fire, but also emotions where your screaming and lunging at the villain in the book.

An unpredictable ending by any means, Written in Blood will mesmerize you and captivate your interest and I’m sure the compelling storyline will keep you glued . I enjoy the way in which Elaine Lee draws her emotions and descriptions, its great when you can envisage a scene in a book like your there. ** not referring to the smexy scenes lol ** chuckles ….. * raises eyebrows **

The last few chapters had me slightly peeking ! ** aka shit scared ** When a author can bring you into the story emotionally and visually  you knows its been a great read.

A must read to add to your tbr pile ;) Elaina lee delivers great cover love and a great story to boot !!!

Written in Blood can be brought here > Amazon

Tarot series -Two of Wands - Fallout by Amy Romine.

Fallout is book three in the  Tarot series in which Amy has continued to weave an action - packed story full of intrigue, suspense and romance, with a great cast of characters. Here is the Book cover, blurb and my thoughts .I must say Im a cover love kinda girl and this series the covers are smokin ** hawt **

Jack and Kate struggle to navigate through the web of lies surrounding them. Chasing shadows, the truth is closer than they realize. Isolated and hiding from unknown forces, can they uncover the buried secrets that killed Mike, and put a price of their heads? When Kate makes a deal, and leaves Jack behind, will she make it
back, or will one misstep destroy all of their hopes for the future.

Jack and Kate are on the run. They are surrounded by lies and deceit and the truth is closer they they could imagine. Can they discover why Mike was killed, and keep themselves clear from the Killers till then? Kate puts it all on the line. Will she sacrifice everything to find the reasons behind Mike’s death; will she find what she is searching for? Will this be the be all or end all for love and life?

An incredible ending to The  Tarot Series - Two of Wands by Amy. The story takes off where it left off in Shockwave. Jack and Kate are still in turmoil as to whom the killer is and why Jack was killed and we are kept in suspense and in trepidation as to the outcome. One again a story in which Amy, delivers a strong storyline filled with not only luscious goodies, involving   two characters with chemistry enough to blow up any science lab but mutual love and affection. Dialogue is crisp, the suspense is action packed and the romance is ** scorching ** flames n all - with the extra - *WHO DUN IT * you won’t see coming.   

Suspense that will not only have you frantically flipping to get to the end, but an ending to give you heart flutters and holding your breathe.  Fluent and fast paced story line with enough action, romance and drama to keep your interest piqued from page one. Great cast of  characters that have continued on from book one, ones we have grown to love and ones we wished we could not only kick their arse but do some serious mojo to.. (( Jackie chan style ** grins
Amy has created a Kick arse heroine who is not only smart, but caring and all for one and one for all kinda girl.  She goes for it hammer and tong – tooth n nail -  till the very end with legs, kicking and screaming … ** she never backs down ** I love her spunk !!
Now Jack he made me melt !! So loving and yet determined… A character in itself I’m sure you will enjoy from book one onwards.

Amy continued to weave her magic throughout the three book series, a must read to add to your reader or your tbr pile you won’t be disappointed!!!

Werewolf Descent by Elizabeth Kolodziej * The Last Witch series *

Werewolf Descent is the second instalment in Elizabeth's series *The Last Witch * .  A fantastic second addition to Vampyre Kisses. These books must be read in order or I feel that you would not get the characters and how they have become, the settings and the storyline. Here is the blurb and book cover and then my review and thoughts..

Last witch in the world, Faith Scott, and her Irish vampire boyfriend Trent have just come back from fighting for their lives to recover the Vampiric Blood gem and Werewolf Moon gem. Thinking they could finally relax and work on the romance growing between them, they now meet a mysterious psychic vampire named Vincent who has his heart set on being with Faith.
Soon bizarre killings of Zou Tai's werewolf pack begin, with rumors of an alchemist possessing the famed philosophers stone being the assailant; which, causes Faith to turn to Vincent for help in figuring out why the werewolves are being murdered.
It isn't long before all those around them test Trent and Faith's love, along with their abilities, once again. It is all Trent can do to keep Faith safe by his side while both go up against a deadly alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue the werewolf prince; yet, after a deal with the God of Werewolves will Trent be able to save himself too.

Faith Scott is the last  witch in the world. Thinking life would settle down after retreiving the blood and moon stones, with her Irish Vampire Boyfriend , a bizarre killings of werewolves is taking place. There hearts are exploding and werewolves are being kidnapped. Rumours are an alchemist is killing them, reason behind the murders is unbeknown. Faith has asked Vincent * A Psychic Vampire  - one which drains energy rather than blood )) to help. But will she get more than she planned on ?  Vincent is besotted with Faith !

Trent and Faith's love is challenged - but not only a vampire but a wolf who all have an infaction with her. Trent is kept on his toes to proof to Faith he has nothing but undying love for her.
A crazy  alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue Zou Tai  from the kidnappers - Faith is determined to deal with them all to save the ones she loves.

But at what costs to Faith ?

My thoughts !!

I  must say this was a great continuous from Book one Vampyre Kisses !! I really enjoyed it !!

Faith and Trent's love is challenged throughout this read, an interesting addition ( new character to create a love triangle) is added . -  Vincent a psyic vampire - only one of his kind per generation he is  full of spunk and heat  and has an infactuation  for Faith you had to wander what his motives where.. ** He makes her tingle and doubt herself at times-  so it often made me wander if he was using his powers !! ** wink wink !

New characters added to create havoc and an  extra love  interest added , which makes it   interesting for story development, we find new characters to hate, love and grow with. All characters easily realate to and enjoy, their funny manerims, and their antics creating each individually.

Storyline I found ran  fluent , I really enjoyed the fact that Elizabeth told the story from different POV"S I found that this gave the story depth, and character. Its always nice to know what other characters are thinking throughout and this concept I found refreshing and not at all confusing. ! It was very enlightening.

All chapters running fluently, from one to the next, intriguing story and world that Elizabeth has created a new kind of vampire ! ** hot one at that ** and infactutaion and rivalry for love !! We always enjoy a love triangle !! It has you curious throughout the entire book who Faith will end up with. I even found myself wandering whom I would choose. Elizabeth made it hard for me as a reader  to pick a favourite male love for Faith !! They where all such sweeties !!

 But Trent captured my heart with his sweet nickname for Faith and his undying love and devotion.. Their love was sensual and romantic and yes lovey dovey ! But hey I love this kind !! Smokin scenes that will knock your socks off so definelty a read for the big girls !!!  ** The fireworks where definetly sparking between Faith and Trent** I enjoyed the romance they had, and the fact that Faith wasnt a whiney character, she was tough and kickarse with Trent hot on her tail to ensure she was safe at all times . ** My kinda man ** sigh -

 The rivalry between the boys just adds that little bit of excitement..

Emotions and descriptions all well portrayed.. I must say the ending had me gasping and ** yelling out ** NOOOOOO - tears and gob smacked !! NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPECTED .... I found my  heart had shattered,,,, and thinking where Elizabeth is taking this story !!! So unpredictable and I must say Im not sure if it really happened !!!! ** wipes away tears ** A cliffhanger you that will leave you hanging by a finger !

Characters were all easily liked, and had their own personalites ! The villian - I would love to have jumped into the book to slice him open ! A villian we all loathe and hate !! Created perfectly for the reader !!

Overall, a fantastic addition to The Last Witch series, a story that will not only keep you captivated, but mesmerized from beginning to end,curve balls thrown in , and a roller coaster ride that will take you right till the very end screaming and gasping !!!

 An intriguing world that Elizabeth has created -  filled with  great characters that will not only keep your attention piqued but captivated at how she created such a unique world for us all to enjoy !!
I eagerly await book 3 !!! ** heart aching till then ! **
