Winter Eve by Lia Davis

Winter Eve by Lia Davis
  There comes a time when setting your differences aside isn't just necessary, it's a means of survival. After losing over half of their dens to a group rogue shifters, the wolves and leopards merged as one Pack, but living together is much more of a challenge then they expected.

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared--emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls' overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distance dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart. 

After Nevan Mathews' fiancĂ©e died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica's doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again. 
Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own? 

Review Rating: Four stars

  A delightful take on the shifter story, I couldn't stop reading it once I had started!
  Danica is the pack healer, but due to an unfortunate accident has been left horribly scarred and depressed. She's accepted that she'll be alone...
  Enter Nevan single guy with a broken heart and empathic abilities. Add to that he grew up with Lions, so he already knows about the shifter world that is so secretive.
  Together the sparks fly almost immediately, the Alpha stepping in starts tempers flying and an issue is challenged for Danica. Can Nevan hold his own against shifters? Can he hold onto the woman that he is beginning to love?
  Well go buy the book and find out ;-)
  I can't wait to read more in this  delicious  series.

Dangerous by Jax (Jacquelyn Frank)

Dangerous by Jax (Jaquelyn Frank)
 A body that won't quit.
 Clothes that are barely there.
 Eyes that invite him to take what he wants.
 Devon Chandler is nothing like the helpless, vulnerable woman Liam expected when he agreed to provide security for her Catskill Mountain estate. Yet her life is at risk. Her enemies monsters. Her secrets devastating.
 Liam Nash is a trained killer who takes no prisoners, fears no man. But to him this woman is seductively, devastatingly.... Dangerous.

 What happens when you have a sadistic genetic scientist bent on immortality? Lives ruined, chaos, and world changing events.

 A definite five star story, I couldn't stop once I started reading this awesome story.
  Jax has out done herself yet again, her world building skills and attention to detail are on top! Add to that her awesome story and sexual tension between her main characters...Whew!
 The story picks up some fifty years after her last installment in the Morphates story. For those of you who haven't been following Jaquelyn or Jax, the first and only other installment was in an Anthology) The Morphates are the unfortunate people that were stolen from their daily lives, or from the lowest cess pools of society and experimented on by one evil scientist. 
  What's different about this story from other authors out there is that The Morphates are immortal, they can literally come back from the dead, won't age, nada.
  The main characters in this story however are in certain roles...protector and protectee.... So there is some MAJOR protocols being challenged and just plain thrown out the window, and I don't know about ya'll but I'm old enough to remember the movie The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. That didn't turn out so well in the end for the bodyguard :( 

   On the other hand Devon has developed weapons that can kill the Morphates, and needless to say....They're not too happy about that, thus her need for a Bodyguard detail.
   Whats going to happen? Who's going to die? Who's going to love and cross boundaries? Well pick up the book sillies, and read!! ;) I promise you won't be disappointed.

D.L. Jackson " Rebels and Courtesans"

I was asked to read and review this book by the wonderful Ms. Jackson, whom sent me the print copy along with some extra swag. I can honestly tell you getting that box in the mail was the highlight of my day!
I rate this book a HUGE Five Stars

 Rebels and Courtesans is actually two stories Rebel Souls, and Courtesan Boot Camp both stories are fantastic! I fell in love with both worlds, the depth and description that D.L. gives is remarkable!

  Courtesan Boot Camp starts now.
Genetically engineered, raised from birth for no other purpose than to become the Ruellen Courtesan, Shay is one of four candidates left vying for the coveted spot. If she succeeds she will become a consort to a king and queen. If she fails, she'll become just another whore, using her body to get by.....

 Courtesan Boot Camp is the first in this awesome book and takes you to a far off world where young girls (if there was young men, it wasn't mentioned) are trained to council King's and Queen's on how to get the most out of satisfying each other in their marriage bed. They're expected to be courteous, and polite, to not form "attachment" to their trainers and so on so forth.
 What no one expects is that from a young age the hard headed Shay fell in love with the Ruellen Prince and vowed to be his Courtesan. Fast forward and its time for final selections, Shay enters into the final stage of her training, only to find out its not quite what she expects....
 dun dun dun.... I can't reveal much more than that without giving away the goods! But trust me the description and attention to detail is amazing, and the emotion off the star charts! ;)

REBEL SOULS Born in the fires of revolution, baptised in the blood of those who fought for a better life, Captain Ava Frost smuggles illegal materials to a war machine that will someday free her people from an oppressive government.
  A child of two worlds, Ava's heritage binds her to a revolution and places her at ground zero.....

Rebel Souls is the second book included and it is no less exciting.
  We find Captain Frost in the thick of things right from the word go, and she's no shy miss either! She leaves the Legatus speechless as she flys backwards through a worm hole! Can we say CRAZY! Yes we can class! ;)
   What entails after that is an epic adventure of twists and turns, love, and jealousy! But my oh my what an awesome ending! Just open it and see!
 Once again D.L.'s attention to detail and emotion is off the scales.

Marshal of Hel Dorado by Heather Long

STAR RATING     Five  
Marshal of Hel Dorado 
Heather Long
 In the shadows of the Old West, that untamed land, lived bands of outlaws, and outsiders. In a time when fevers could fell whole towns, these few survivors are marked. Marked.... and forever changed.
  Sam Kane is the oldest brother, the steadfast son and the confident Marshal. He's never met a problem too hot to handle until a gang behind a string of robberies across the territory set their sights on his town. Now with the Bank gold inexplicably missing from a locked safe, the town hunting the elusive thieves, and a passionate redhead with a fiery secret in his jail, Sam has his hands full.
   Scarlett Morning Star lived in seclusion in the mountains of West Texas most of her life. She longs for adventure, but with seven very protective brothers, adventure is hard to come by. When she tags along uninvited on their latest escapade she is left behind during a bank robbery, and finds herself in the custody of the very sexy town Marshal.
   The town wants to lynch her, the Marshal wants answers, and her brothers want her back, can Scarlett keep it together oe will her explosive secret burn them all?
       Her life.
             His badge.
                   Their fight.

     Heather was awesome enough to give me a copy of her book to break "the Cherry" of my Book Blog. ;)
     So without further ado, the beautiful gem that is debuting on Dark Desires Book Blog today is... Marshal of Hel Dorado by Heather Long

      As expected it has certainly not disappointed. Heather's world building skills and knack for bringing it to such vividity is as always done remarkably well. Right down to the mannerisms and even the clothing of that era.
      I particularly liked how the Kane men could "sense" when they crossed on to their land, and to some degree also had some intuition.
     Scarlett's unerring loyalty to her brothers is admirable, especially since she was so conflicted about confiding in and trusting Sam Kane.
     Add to all this the elder Kane and Cobb and their way of turning and molding things in the direction that they want them to go in,......LOVE IT!
     There is also the allure of other "special gifts" in the story, but I have to save some of the surprise for you the readers, right. ;)
     Overall this Fabulous book is a must read, especially if you like to take a step back in time, or to another world.  I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
