Bewitching The Werewolf by Caroline Hanson

20 Aug

My friends think am a wuss but I usually do not read werewolf and vampire books because I’ll get nightmares. Still, we all have to face our fears if we are to move forward. I figure I am missing a lot of really cool books out there because of my phobia. I was therefore looking for something to help me ease into the genre again..So, after more than a year of not reading werewolf stuff, I found this delightful read that is my first baby step. Short, well-written and totally not scary. Sharing it right away

Did I mention it is currently free on Amazon Kindle? Oh, yeah.

Bewitching the Werewolf by Caroline Hanson

book description:

When witch for hire, Megan Stephens, is assigned to help the local werewolf pack leader find a mate, she thinks the job will be easy. Get in, get him up and get gone. But when she meets Zack Connor, she realizes her future might have a lot more dog jokes in it than she ever imagined.

This is a short story– approximately 40 pages in length– and includes an excerpt from Love is Darkness, the first book in the Valerie Dearborn series.

**Please be aware that this book contains sex. And not in a fade-to-black-sort-of-way but an-OMG-that’s-in-public-sort-of-way**

Happy Reading:)

DOUBLE TROUBLE by DEBORAH COOKE

11 Aug

 

Double Trouble: The Coxwells (Volume 2) by Deborah Cooke

book description:

Two sisters. One disaster. First things first: I’m the bad twin. While my sister, Marcia, has the perfect family in the perfect suburb, I’ve been making my living as an Internet advice columnist and designing Web sites in my downtown loft. I always thought I had the right answer – and hair color – for any occasion. That is, until Marcia ran up loads of debt and ran out on her husband and kids, and I was left helping to pick up the pieces. Her husband, James, is a lawyer who I hate on principle alone. But for a guy who’s just lost his job, his marriage, and his expensive toys, he’s keeping it together – and making me rethink my feelings toward him. It’s not that he’s traded in his conservative suits for sexy jeans. It’s that he’s not giving up what’s important to him, and oh baby, I’m a sucker for a guy who hangs tough. That doesn’t mean I?m ready to step into Marcia’s designer shoes now that she’s gone AWOL. And it doesn’t mean I’m going to fall for James’ easy charm…not again, anyhow. Besides, I’ve had a lifelong policy of not being mistaken for my twin and I’m not backing down on that one now – no matter how convenient it might be for a certain sexy (and persuasive) man…

what we thought:

This is what I call an intelligent read. The cover is stunning and that is usually my criteria for downloading books (yes, that shallow); plus it was free on kindle for a little while:) Maralys is a character that I will not be forgetting any time soon. She is smart, funny and vulnerable although she has this tough shell that can be misleading. I really felt her phobia for kids and dependency but she still works through that to be an awesome aunt to her two nephews. Her jobs? totally cool. Loved the twist with James ( am not telling) and I was so engrossed in reading this that it caught me unawares. Big up Deborah; looking for more of your books most def.

what we found out:

  • First of all, Double Trouble is the second book in a series that I cannot wait to get my hands on-The Coxwells. We will be featuring the rest of the series soon so you can check them out yourself.
  • The series has been around for some time (Could have fooled me) I could not establish exactly when the books first came out but we found a review dated 10 years back so around that time. The books were first published under her pseudonym Claire Cross. Then she decided to republish them and offer them digitally too. She hasn’t changed a word so you’ll be reading them the way they originally were. So glad she republished them because I probably would not have come across them.

On Deborah:

  • She writes under the names Claire Cross, Claire Delacroix and of course Deborah Cooke
  • She has written over 40 novels. Wow, right?
  • Apart from writing, she has a passion for knitting and sewing; quite obvious from her blog
  • She lives In Canada
  • She writes in different genres, including Young Adult and Paranormal Romance.
  • She has a fascination for dragons which has translated to two bestselling series; The Dragon Fire Series and The Dragon Diaries Series ( Young Adult). We hope to feature the books soon.

The Free Part:)

For Readers:

Deborah has a contest for the month of August where she gives away a signed copy of Third Time Lucky (One of The Coxwells books). All you have to do is check out her blog and leave a comment. Easy huh?

The Running Series by Diane Strong

6 Aug

My darlings :)

So sorry I didn’t give you a weekend read but I have tons of fabulous new books to share with you this week and I hope that will make up for the silence. So what was I reading all this time? Well, am still on my new suspense diet and I found this trilogy. Short reads too, so you can have a lunch-time treat or a bedtime story if you wish. I read one with each meal, bad habit really, but am proud to be an addict:)

Alrighty before I tell you which  series I am talking about, I should mention that they are stand alone books, meaning you can start with any of them. I recommend going in line however, because each book is better than the previous one. Caught your attention, did I? The third book was def my fave. It has a twist, uh-huh, that I only guessed halfway through. I must be losing my reader’s instincts, or maybe she (Diane Strong) is that amazing of a writer. You will have to get your own copy before we conclude this debate.

So each of the books focuses on a runner, hence the name. Not really professionals. Just regular you and me. Totally relatable.

Pssst: The First book in the series (The Run) is currently free on Smashwords and Kobo :)

And the books:

The Run (Running Suspense Series #1)

book description:

Cora is a runner and mother of two whose husband is working out of town on business. Always a protective mother, Cora has never left her children alone. That is until a well-intentioned friend encourages her to. This is a story that will leave you questioning your parenting skills and wanting to read more great running adventures by Diane Strong.

                                             Champagne Taste by Connie Keenan

book description:

What’s a girl to do when she’s out shopping for a new dress, and only the one that’s outrageously priced is the one calling her name? Or when the only pair of shoes that will be a perfect match for that dress costs another huge chunk of change? Kara Childers, library clerk by day and belly dancer instructor by night, will readily admit that her champagne taste has been a dilemma she’s dealt with for, well, ever. Now she’s applying that same gold standard to the men in her life. The most recent of guys is well-to-do Dr. Jarrett, who zips around town in a flashy red convertible. Although not sure she really wants to be a trophy wife, she’s determined to make it work with the somewhat offbeat pediatrician.

That is, until Gil Parsons moves in right next door. Her new neighbor may be a tall, muscle-y hunk, but Kara’s first impression of the man is that he is the classic Mr. Wrong. So why is he suddenly taking center stage in her heart—and making her forget any other men she’s ever known? Kara’s about to learn that there’s more to Gil than meets the eye, and that sometimes the best things in life don’t come with a price tag.

anyways there is a bunch of books remaining so check them out

Alex Covington, Lauren’s father, keeps a tight rein on his family through dominance, abuse, and obsessive control. Consequently, Lauren doesn’t believe she could ever trust a man, much less fall in love with one. When Lauren meets Jesse Ryder, her carefully constructed protective wall shatters. She falls hopelessly and completely in love. It’s only fitting that Jesse is a private detective who had once worked for her father, had defied him, and was now the subject of Alex Covington’s wrath. Amidst devastating loss, betrayal, and her father’s destructive pursuit of Jesse, Lauren finds the trust and love she had always longed for.
