Two lovers. Two Continents. Two Cultures. One unforgettable love story.

She made a terrible mistake when she broke up with Ade—and now she wants him back. On the flight to London, she meets Chris, a British gentleman who is instantly captivated by Maita and pursues her relentlessly.

When Ade rejects Maita’s efforts to rekindle their romance, she turns to Chris. As a couple, Maita and Chris are forced to confront racism, the complexities of an interracial relationship, and their insecurities.

But Maita has never forgotten Ade…nor has he ever gotten over her. Then, in a sudden turn of events, a determined Ade resurfaces and attempts to reconnect with Maita. But Chris is doubly prepared to keep her at any cost, unleashing a dangerous chain of events that will forever alter the course of all three lives.

How far will each man go to win her love?

#BookReview “A Stranger’s Revenge” by K.J. McGillick

A Stranger's Revenge book cover

Title: A Stranger’s Revenge

Author: K.J. McGillick

Release: January 4, 2022

Genre: Murder Thriller

Goodreads

~~~

5/5 Stars!

Author K.J. McGillick has one speed… fast! And that’s how this reads begins when a gun-running deal goes awry and a two-year-old girl is shot and left for dead.

Fast-forward thirty years and that little girl is now Abigail Cooke, arts law attorney. Though a good family adopted Abby, she’s still always been at odds with her past, wondering why her family left her to die and why they never looked for her.

When a young woman is found murdered in South Boston, government records identify her as Abby. However, when Abby is found alive, further investigating by the FBI proves the dead woman to be Abby’s biological twin, Aisling Dolan.

This information leads Abby on an international journey to find her family and find out why she was abandoned. What she finds is a family enmeshed in international art forgeries/thefts, human trafficking, and murder.

As each person Abby seeks out ends up murdered, she’s suddenly a person of interest, and she doesn’t know why. She wrongly believes if she finds the paintings and returns them to the rightful owner, he’ll be satisfied and she can continue to sort out her tragic past and find a living connection between her and Aisling. But Abby is wrong. He wants the paintings, and he wants her dead.

A strong, solid plot and a likable protagonist made this an enjoyable read that kept me turning pages. Abby Clarke is equal parts a business professional, a take-no-prisoners heroine, and a broken little girl. While she is a successful professional, it’s the broken little girl which keeps her from enjoying a full life.

Fortunately, Abby has the ultimate support network in Maura, a psychiatrist and her lifelong best friend, Edna, her personal assistant, and her grandma Stasha—all three equally strong women who didn’t back down from anything. I have no problem imagining Edna and Stasha opening a detective agency! Those two! HA!

Trying to keep straight the good guys from the bad guys kept me confused right up to the end… and what an ending! This appears to be a standalone read, but I wouldn’t mind reading more about Abby and her crew… and what happens between her and Alessandro.

Enjoy!

Blurb:

When art law attorney Abigail Clarke is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed, will she be able to outwit a man determined to kill every member of her treacherous family.

Thirty years ago, during a thunderstorm, on an isolated street in South Boston, an unidentified two-year-old girl was discovered, abandoned, shot, barely clinging to life. After a thorough investigation, the case was eventually designated to the cold case files until Abigail Clarke, now an astraphobic art law attorney, is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed.

What the FBI Art Crime Division cannot determine is if Abigail is an innocent bystander or a co-conspirator in her sister’s art fraud crimes.

Compelled to uncover all her family’s secrets, nothing prepares Abigail for the disastrous meeting with her murderous brother and crime boss father. Her life is irreversibly changed the more she becomes mired in her family’s treachery. She soon finds herself drawn into a game of cat and mouse by the vengeful killer who methodically plans to execute every member of her family, holding each one of them ultimately responsible for the murder of his own family thirty years ago.

#BookReview “Claimed by the Moon (Royal Shifters Novel)” by LP Dover

cover

~~~

5/5 Stars!

Second-grade teacher, Amelie Graye, has not had an easy life. But she is finally settled, living a quiet life in her pack waiting for her destined mate. She finds out Royal wolf Zayne Lyall is her mate, and while he already feels the thrall and she doesn’t, Amelie is still drawn to him.

Their relationship is threatened when Amelie is caught between Zayne and her first love, Knox, and a two-hundred-year-old grudge. She tries to negotiate peace between the two, but it soon becomes apparent the Royal wolves will meet in battle.

Though they both suffered extreme loss in their lives, Zayne and Amelie were polar opposites. He was closed off, distant, and held his emotions inside, while Amelie was open, friendly, and quite talkative. I enjoyed watching his character evolve as he did everything he could to keep his mate safe, including sleeping outside her home every night. They make a great couple and I loved how when they finally let their guards down, they talked to each other, holding nothing back.

Amelia was a strong, independent character. Even though her cousin and friends all were mated, she didn’t sulk and whine, but was a strong, positive force loved and included in everything by her friends.

She let me down a bit when Knox showed up though. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but felt she allowed him to get too close. The Royal  Pack was her family and Zayne was her mate, and she should have trusted their warnings one-hundred-percent from the beginning. However, she found her efforts to broker peace were futile and no match for the hatred and anger between Zayne and Knox.

Supporting characters all have great personalities and I enjoyed their banter. I even enjoyed villains Knox and his sister, Zara. As they tried to appear friendly and accommodating, I could feel their contempt for the Lyalls and Storms rumbling just beneath the surface.

Excellent writing and well-developed characters not only make this a great read but make me want to read more of the Royal series!

Enjoy!

~~~

In his 200 years of life, Zayne Lyall has made his share of enemies. The most ruthless of all being Knox Channon, who seeks vengeance for a pack war that took place over a hundred years ago.

To gain information he can use to bring Zayne down, Knox reconnects with Amelie Graye, a past love who joined the Royal pack Zayne belongs to. Unfortunately, Amelie doesn’t know much about the royal arctic… despite a longing within her to be near him.

Amelie and Knox have a tumultuous past that ended after she and her family went rogue following an attack by the Sierra pack. While she has no details to offer about Zayne, Knox sniffing around her leaves his inner wolf snarling.

More than anything Zayne wants to charge in and protect the woman his heart aches for. But he has a secret… and it could cost him everything. Amelie is his fated mate. If Knox were to discover this, he would know hurting her would be the key to destroying Zayne. Torn between his desire to claim Amelie as his own and his ferocious passion to protect her, can Zayne find a way to bring down his malicious enemy? Or will an age old vendetta rob him of a blissful future with his bonded mate?
