Salem´s Curse (The Soul-Shifter Chronicles #1) by Sydney Bristow. NA Urban Fantasy. Release

Title: Salem's Curse
Series: The Soul-Shifter Chronicles #1
Author: Sydney Bristow
Genre: NA Urban Fantasy
Release Date: February 18, 2017
Brilliant witch. Socially awkward. The last protector of the human race. 
So yeah, that’s me: Celestina Sykes. Now seriously, how can I save humanity when I practically go into panic attack mode just talking with a stranger? And guys? Yeah, right! I’ve never even kissed one, much less went on a date.
Not only that, but my witch-bitch Granny stole my memory of the week someone killed my mom, which was around the same time I mysteriously aged two years within a couple minutes, and you get an idea how awesome my life is. 
All told, I’ve got a few days to figure out whom to trust, finally make some friends who can help with this whole end-of-the-world-thing, and my social calendar is kinda booked. But hey, wish me luck…and multiply that by infinity because I think I’m gonna need it.
"Did you know,” Granny said in monotone, “that you are not eighteen years of age?” I replayed her statement in my mind, and…I sensed she believed the words she spoke, no matter how ridiculous they sounded. “The week your mother died,” she continued, “you physically aged two years…within an hour.” Granny looked at me, plain-faced, her mouth closed with no intention of saying another word. “What’re you talking about?” I asked, my lips lifting at the absurdity. “You sound like a lunatic.” “Do I look like a lunatic?” “Yes! Always. It’s your thing.”


Sydney writes about the type of women that populate the world. Well, okay, maybe they're not witches, vampires, and shifters, but you know - the strong, smart, and witty type.

Nighthawk: Sons Of De Wolfe (De Wolfe Pack #7) by Kathryn Le Veque. Historical Romance Review.

Add To

1271 A.D. - The Wolfe's greatest son is a man known as NIGHTHAWK. 

Patrick de Wolfe is every bit his father's son - cunning, intelligent, and ruthless. An enormous man with his father's dark hair and his mother's pale green eyes, he's the man destined to lead William de Wolfe's great legacy. He is so great, in fact, that the king has personally asked for his service, as one of the king's personal body guards. On the eve of Patrick departing for this auspicious assignment, he finds himself caught up in a skirmish along the Scots border. 

And a prize lands in his lap that will change his destiny. 

A prize in the form of a Scots captive harboring a deadly and important secret, one that could bring war and destruction upon those who shelter her. When Brighton “Bridey” de Favereux is rescued by the powerful English knight, she is taken back to the massive fortress of Questing Castle, seat of the legendary de Wolfe family. Having known nothing but hardship and cruelty her entire life, she is surprised when they are kind to her. The English, who are supposed to be her mortal enemy, are gracious and generous. For the first time, she understands that people can be kind to each other. 

And the kindest one of all is the man who saved her. 

Some loves are unexpected while others are instantly realized. The love between Patrick and Brighton is something that comes from a deeper place of understanding and attraction, a powerful love that cannot be denied… but it is a love that may cost them both their very lives when Bridey's terrible secret is uncovered.

Sir Patrick de Wolfe is the commander of Berwick castle.  He has been told a band of Scottish rievers have attacked nearby and taken a captive. This rescue will be no problem.  The problems start afterwards.  His actions could cause trouble for the whole family with the church and the King. 
Brighton de Favereux was a bastard, left at the priory as an infant.  Why would anyone want to abduct her now?. 
A wonderful story full of adventure, danger and deep love. There are huge battles and soft family moments.  Our larger than life hero is the sort of the man any woman would want.  Even if he is a tiny bit arrogant.  Our sweet heroine is scared and confused,  with good reason.  The de Wolfe family and their connections will be familiar to anyone who has read this author's work before.  They are all wonderfully strong and well written characters.  It is always a pleasure to visit with them.  I loved every page,  as usual.

Rory is the only wolf shifter in the Wilde Crew.  They are a crew known as misfits and he is always the butt of all their jokes.  He longs to be respected.  His loyalty is well known,  but it could prove fatal. 
Candice is a little fox shifter who works at the inn on the ranch.
A short but very funny ending to the stories for this series.  A big all out battle will get the whole town's attention.  Lots of fun.

Title: Ripple Effect: Episode 1
Series: A Dark Hitman Erotic Romance Book 1
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Erotic Suspense/Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2017
From the author of Ricochet and Backfire comes a dark erotic suspense serial ...
Episode One: Dylan will do anything to escape her current nightmare, even if it means falling into the tangled web of a ruthless killer.
Series Synopsis:
Ripley
They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.
Dylan
For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.
