4/5 stars!

Ironically, this fantasy begins with scenes mirroring current events.

Agitation, ambivalent leadership, and power struggles have led to civil unrest and rioting devastates a town. Arriving too late to intervene and save lives, Kingsman, the head of the King’s guard, blames himself for the carnage.

Finding Kira, a six-year-old girl orphaned by the riots, he takes the child and raises her as his own.

Fifteen years later, Kingsman has left the palace and leads the guild, a small band of thieves for hire. They take their profession seriously and train with military-like precision. And Kira is one of them. They are also her family and she will do anything to protect them.

Random murders begin to occur in the village and blame falls on the guild. Kira knows her family well—they raised her. Yes, they are thieves, but not killers. Her frustration grows as the murders continue and the guild has bounties placed on their heads… and they’re targeted by unknown assassins.

Kira’s instincts lead her to suspect the two newest guild members—Russell and Pierceton. She loathes them both, but before she can find evidence of their betrayal, Russell is murdered and Pierceton disappears.

Determined to find out who is behind the murders and the attempts on her family’s lives, Kira’s journey to clear their names will lead her to a town where anything is available for a price… even murder; to the royal palace and the chambers of the King and Queen, and to the love of two men; one she doesn’t trust and one she’s afraid to love.

The Thief’s Betrayal has strong protagonists and supporting characters. There is honor among thieves. And trust and loyalty. However, Kira may find out truth is one quality her family is lacking.

Kingsman and the guild raised Kira well and she is as strong and honorable as they are. Sometimes her confidence contains too much ego and leads her to make poor decisions or act in haste, and she curses herself for her lapse in judgment.

I enjoyed this read. However, I do admit to wanting to skim about three-quarters of the way through. It dragged for me with redundant scenes of internal thoughts, and there were scenes which were never explained enough for me, but the deceptions and plot twists leading to the story’s climax kept me reading.

Fantasy lovers will enjoy Kira’s story… and find out what Nightlock is.

Enjoy!

Synopsis

Someone is murdering the citizens of Kira’s village, and her fellow thieves are being blamed. Desperate to clear their names and restore the reputation of the guild, Kira embarks on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the palace and enlist the help of the king and queen.

One man stands in her way, Chaol, the head guard, who threatens to steal the thief’s heart.

And he’s not the only one. Her childhood crush on Badrick might finally be developing into something more than friendship. But only if they can figure out who is threatening to kill them before it is too late.

Kira wants to trust Kingsman, the man who took her in and raised her as his own, but she is starting to wonder if he has been lying to her all along.

Can the three men closest to her keep Kira safe long enough for her to carry out her plan to save the village? Or will the secrets they have kept from her destroy her happiness—and her life—before she has a chance to clear her name and prove the innocence of those she cares about the most?

#Review “Murder on the Mountain (Marshall Brothers #1)” by Carolyn LaRoche

cover
Title: Murder on the Mountain
Series: Marshall Brothers Book #1
Author: Carolyn LaRoche
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 2, 2020

~~~

4/5 Stars

Investigative reporter Emma Thomas is on a mission to revive her career and reclaim her life… and her dignity. Using the information from an anonymous informant, all she needs is to get photos of a suspected drop location in her hometown of Staunton, Virginia to give her drug trafficking expose the weight it needs to get her back in the game.

She finds the drop spot in the woods but instead of finding drugs, Emma witnesses a murder, and the baddies intend for her to be the next victim.

Her dash to safety leads Emma to former best friend and first crush, Detective Adam Marshall. A misunderstanding and tragedy have kept them apart for over a decade, but time and distance hasn’t changed their hearts. Death threats and more attempts on Emma’s life could be the catalysts to force Adam to choose which he’s willing to sacrifice—his career or the life of the woman he’s loved since grade school.

Adam Marshall is the nice guy/everyman trying to be a decent cop and get through each day. He focuses on his career to forget everything he’s lost and avoid the guilt for the parts he played.

Emma left Staunton for the same reasons, but despite them both moving on, they’re still weighed down by the past. Honestly, these two have enough baggage and drama between them to fill an Andrew Lloyd Webber stage production. Their banter got annoying for me in a few spots because they were talking without really saying anything.

I felt bad for Adam with the love of his life stumbling into a case he’s been working on for months. He has to admit things to himself he wasn’t ready for. I’m not too quick to extend the same grace to Emma. She annoyed me. With all they’ve both gone through together and apart, neither of them did anything “wrong,” but she was too confrontational for me, looking to argue with Adam over anything. Trying to mask her true feelings? Perhaps. But it led her to make too many dangerous decisions and took her far too long to understand the gravity of their situation. One minute she was, “I could die today,” and the next, “But what about my story?” Meh.

But liking characters isn’t required to enjoy a story. Murder on the Mountain is an enjoyable read with a solid plot. Tensions and emotions run high when the chief villain is exposed and it’s not clear who will live to see another day.

My favorite scenes: Emma in the closet; and Pablo in the closet. HA! Don’t ask, just grab this one today.

Enjoy!

~~~

Emma Thomas hasn’t been home in years. Only back in Staunton for a few months, she plans to put her investigative reporter skills to use in exposing the trafficking group using her peaceful, idyllic hometown to move drugs. But when she stumbles onto more than drugs, bullets start flying and she has to ask the one person she left Virginia to avoid for help.

Detective Adam Marshall has been working this cartel case for months. On the precipice of breaking the organization wide open, he can’t believe the one woman he’d never been able to get over now holds the key to closing his case. His head warns him to steer clear, but his heart won’t let him walk away when Emma’s life is on the line.

Thrown together by chance after so many years, Adam and Emma work together to break the biggest case of both of their careers and heal some old wounds in the process. Falling in love wasn’t on the docket for either of them, but things don’t always go as planned.

#Review “Lascivious Luca” by Anne Marie Citro

tour banner

~~~Lascivious Luca

Savage’s Buck and Doe #2

Adult Romance

Date Published: March 3rd, 2019

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Though a contemporary romance, at its heart Lascivious Luca is about the strength, power, and love of family.

The four remaining Savage brothers pull together after losing their father, Shawn, and oldest brother, Marcelo, in a mass shooting to complete the bed and breakfast their father started for their mother. Half-Italian by parentage, the hot-blooded, boisterous brothers are one hundred percent Italian in personality.

And they’re protective. To them, Mi Famiglia is everything and their protection extends not only to each other and their mother but also to Emmy (Evangeline)—the woman Sabastian Savage is falling in love with—and her grandfather, Reece, Marcelo’s best friend… and now to his sister, Brooklyn. The sister they never knew he had.

Middle son, Luca, doesn’t know what to make of the shy, quiet, auburn-haired beauty. She works as a waitress at her brother’s gentlemen’s club, and every time he opens his mouth he says the wrong thing. Then he learns why she’s quiet… and withdrawn.

Still holding in his grief from losing his family members, Luca needs a friend outside of his loud, loving, but intrusive family and believes Brooklyn can be that friend. The two grow close, but not without danger, tragedy, and more loss threatening to rip them apart. As Reece had said, “Brooklyn attracts bad luck.”

Strong characters made this an intense read. Though the suspense isn’t quite as edgy as I would have liked, emotions ran high and deep through the read.

Luca is likable and his constant flaws and missteps make him relatable. His need to protect Brooklyn can be over-the-top at times, but not in an alpha-male way but more because family is everything to him and the woman he’s fallen in love with has become part of his family.

Despite having the worst parents and childhood a girl could have, Brooklyn Barnett is no shrinking violet. Her disability is limiting but not debilitating and this woman will have her say… and her way. Fueled by determination and fear, she’s a strong, independent character the author did a good job with, never missing a chance to bring out Brooklyn’s strength instead of making her a weepy, pitiful victim.

The author also does a good job with supporting characters…making them never seem like afterthoughts or filler.  While it’s Luca and Brooklyn’s story, his family blends in seamlessly.

Gay dance instructor, Raimer, and Emmy’s grandfather, Albert, are two great standouts for me because they had no problem saying what needed to be—or they felt should be—said.

But my favorite character is Valentina Savage. Her boys will move heaven and earth to protect her, but this Italian mama does not need protecting, but at times everyone around her does! She won’t hesitate to “correct” anyone in her presence, even if she needs to use a wooden spoon to do it!

During one scene where Luca was proud of his brothers, he thought, “They had been raised by a crazy-ass woman who had made him want to call the children’s helpline more than once, but she had done something right because the men in this room were incredible people.”

Love that! And, lovers of romance, romantic suspense, and family sagas will enjoy this read as much as I did.

Lascivious Luca is book two in the Savage’s Buck and Doe Series. Get started on this series and meet the Savage family. Despite the danger, the love and laughs are worth it!

Enjoy!

~~~

Synopsis

There is a turning point in everyone’s life. Luca Savage knew his was the day his dad and brother were gunned down.

Nobody could live in North America and not hear about a mass shooting, whether it was in a school, a bar, or a shopping mall. It was sad, but Luca had been like most of society—desensitized. He always felt horrible for the victims and donated to their families, but once the initial shock settled and the money was sent, he moved on to the next headlining tragedy. That was before Ground Zero was Luca’s own family.

Tragedy has a way of changing people. When someone you love dies before their time, it torments those left behind. Part of Luca’s torment is that he can’t find beauty in the world anymore. That is, until he meets Brooklyn, a woman with no words who teaches him beauty is there, you just have to see it through the right eyes.

Brooklyn is stunning. To look at her, you would think she has the world on a string. If she wasn’t mute, she would tell you things aren’t always as they appear.

Sins, hers or not, and disillusionment have been her constant companions for most of her life. She can’t change people’s perceptions of her, but she can keep them at arm’s length to validate herself and the family she loves.

Can these two lost souls find peace in each other’s arms? Can the lascivious be overlooked to teach the most meaningful lessons in life? Luca and Brooklyn have to learn together that the people you meet on the journey are as important as the ones you end up with at the destination.

#Review “The Last Scoop” by R.G. Belsky

on Tour May 1-31, 2020

cover

~~~

5/5 Stars!

Sitting down with a Clare Carlson Mystery is like visiting an old friend.

I like her unapologetic, straightforward attitude. She’s good at her job as a television news director while mostly pleasing no one but herself.

However, this time around, Clare’s self-possessed lifestyle leaves her wracked with guilt. Her beloved mentor, Marty Barlow, is killed on a New York City street. She’s haunted by the countless promises she made to meet the retiree for coffee or help him with a story she never saw through.

After picking her brain over their last conversation… and going through notes retrieved from Marty’s family, Clare realizes Marty was on to something. Corruption and murders. And some of the murders were decades old… committed by a serial killer.

Clare uses the methodical skills learned from Marty when she was a cub reporter to track down and piece together clues. The Pulitzer Prize-winner isn’t looking for another award. She wants to finish Marty’s investigations and find the truth, even as it puts her square in the sights of a killer.

As Clare balances work and Marty’s case, she is still plagued by the only other decision she’s ever felt guilt over, and it’s not any of her three divorces. It’s something she hasn’t even told her BFF, Janet. She wants to make it right, but will it all blow up in her face?

Great writing and multiple plot twists make The Last Scoop an unputdownable must-read, especially for readers who love mysteries, crime thrillers, and suspense. Release day fast approaches – preorder this one today!

(This is the third in the Clare Carlson series. Do yourself a favor and grab the first two!)

Enjoy!

Synopsis:

 

Martin Barlow was Clare Carlson’s first newspaper editor, a beloved mentor who inspired her career as a journalist. But, since retiring from his newspaper job, he had become a kind of pathetic figure—railing on about conspiracies, cover-ups, and other imaginary stories he was still working on. Clare had been too busy with her own career to pay much attention to him. When Martin Barlow is killed on the street one night during an apparent mugging attempt gone bad, it seems like he was just an old man whose time had come. But Clare—initially out of a sense of guilt for ignoring her old friend and then because of her own journalistic instincts—begins looking into his last story idea. As she digs deeper and deeper into his secret files, she uncovers shocking evidence of a serial killer worse than Son of Sam, Ted Bundy, or any of the other infamous names in history. This really is the biggest story of Martin Barlow’s career—and Clare’s, too—as she uncovers the path leading to the decades-long killer of at least twenty young women. All is not as it seems during Clare’s relentless search for this serial killer. Is she setting herself up to be his next victim?

#Review “Flight Risk” by Cara Putman

cover

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Flight Risk begins as an easy read that quickly becomes multi-layered and complicated.

Haunted by his father’s death because of a flawed newspaper article, journalist Jett Glover is committed to finding the truth in his work. He reaches out to the ex-wife of one of the men in an expose` he’s writing about human trafficking. The woman brushes him off and his editor runs the story.

Savannah Daniels is a sharp copyright attorney approaching forty. Though divorced for fifteen years, she’s still tied to ex-husband, Dustin Tate, by Addy, the fourteen-year-old he fathered with Savannah’s sister, Stasi.

When Jett’s explosive story becomes public, Savannah rushes to Addy to shield the child from public scrutiny, but before they can make sense of it all, Dustin and his friends are involved in a major plane crash. Though they survive the crash, the three men die in quick succession under mysterious circumstances.

Savannah is stretched thin as she tries to support Addy, deal with the aftermath of the news article, Dustin’s death, and his insistence he had proof of his innocence. Proof he never got to share with her before he died. She also has a major case in mediation she’s determined to win because her clients’ invention could make the infamous black box recorder aboard planes obsolete.

And there’s still Jett Glover, always nearby… with questions.

I liked Jett. His father’s death shaped his life and directed his path. His confidence is shaken with the thought his article led to the deaths of three men and all he wants is redemption. His attraction to Savannah bothers him too, yet he wants to pursue it.

Savannah Daniels is a contradiction. Tough, super smart, and “savvy,” her small law practice attracts high-profile cases and eager young attorneys because of her reputation. However, her personal life is a mess. Though she does have good friends, her evenings are spent with her rescue cat. Dustin’s betrayal left her with major trust issues, and understandably so. Her niece is the only thing that can—and does—pull Savannah away from work. Her boozy, pill-popping sister, Stasi, is indeed the weakest link, and got away with far too much and got off too easily. I couldn’t figure out why neither Savannah nor Dustin hadn’t filed for custody of Addy or why Addy hadn’t run away screaming like she was on fire!

Tension builds as Savannah is attacked multiple times, Stasi gets arrested, and the FBI takes an interest in Savannah’s copyright case. Could her case be connected to the plane crash and Dustin’s death? Where is the fourth man? And who is the mysterious woman from Thailand?

I thought I had this one figured out until Mr. Plot-Twist grabbed me by the neck! HA! I did NOT see that coming! Excellent!

Nice ending and good to see Savannah open to a relationship with Jett.

We’re all searching for good reads during these times of sheltering in place and quarantine life. Add Flight Risk to the top of the list!

Enjoy!

~~~

Synopsis:

 

Bestselling author Cara Putman returns with a romantic legal thriller that will challenge the assumptions of truth tellers everywhere.

Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.

Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career—an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.

When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target.

Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

#Review “Dagger (Vegas MMA #1)” by S.L. Sterling

cover~~~

3.5/5 Stars

They both have been fighting most of their lives, but each for different reasons.

Derrick survived an abusive father and the bullies on the street to become Dagger, a poor but up-and-coming MMA contender.

Katy survived an abusive relationship—just barely—and is living life looking over her shoulder and in the shadows.

The two meet during one of Derrick’s frequent visits to the ER where Katy works to get patched up after a fight. There is an attraction but closed-off Katy and cynical Derrick don’t connect.

However, they each suffer setbacks which cause their paths to cross again, and Derrick goes into protective mode and Katy needs the protection… and a friend.

Told in the alternating points of view of Katy and Dagger (Derrick), this read is a good slow build romance. The problem for me was there was too much telling and not enough showing.

We spend a lot of time in the internal thoughts of Katy and Derrick, remembering past times and events, but most are only memories/descriptions with little dialogue between characters. It’s obvious these two have lived hellish lives, but the intensity is lost in the telling of their pasts. The suspense was watered down, leaving me feeling bad for their experiences, but no anger or empathy until near the end.

These two are likable characters and I couldn’t help but be in their corner as they grew closer together. Overcoming trauma and abuse is difficult, and while I believe these two characters appreciated the changes in their lives, to me, it simply didn’t feel like a life-changing victory because of all the telling.

A solid, feel-good ending ensures Katy and Derrick have a future together… and they do deserve it.

Enjoy!

I’d been fighting all my life.

Making it my career choice seemed…logical.
 
Sticking to what I was good at seemed…illogical as often as I ended up in the ER.
 
Then my occupational hazard began to feel like more of a perk when I met, Katy. She was a night nurse at the ER I frequented. She could barely hide her contempt for me, which naturally made the curvy brunette with long wavy hair all the more irresistible.

Katy
 
They called him Dagger, for the looks he gave.
 
He knew I hated him on sight, but still, he teased me and tried to sway me.
 
There’s no way it would work. I was on the run and still healing from a relationship with a ‘roid-raging powerlifter. No way was I going to give it a go with someone trained to cause pain for a living.
 
Then my ex tracked me down. And suddenly, having a fighter in my corner didn’t seem like such a bad idea.

#Review “No Stone Unturned” by Andrea Kane

cover

~~~

5/5 Stars!

No Stone Unturned is a mystery, crime thriller, and history lesson woven together for a well-paced, suspenseful read.

Arriving at her evening appointment with an elderly antiquities dealer, Fiona McKay finds the woman dead. After an intense police interrogation, a mini-meltdown, and comfort and insight from her older brother, Ryan, it’s clear Rose Flaherty was murdered, and the research she was doing for Fiona may be connected… which means Fiona could be in danger too.

Enter Ryan’s coworkers from Forensics Instincts, a high-tech private investigative firm.

Pushing legal limits and trying not to antagonize law enforcement more than they have to, the FI team find a connection between Rose’s murder and the contents of the McKay memory box—a collection of tapestries passed through the generations on which Fiona bases her Celtic jewelry creations. If that isn’t confusing enough, a wealthy real estate developer and the troubles—the Northern Ireland Conflict which began in the late 1960s—may also be connected.

The well-developed characters pulled me right into the story.

Even though her appearance is brief, Rose Flaherty’s strong personality is present throughout the story.

Fiona McKay is a strong, independent young businesswoman who knows her failings and limitations, but that doesn’t stop her from pushing back against immodest older brother, Ryan. They have a great relationship of love, trust, and respect and know when not to push back.

The FI team—Casey, Marc, Patrick, and Emma all bring their unique personalities into the story, but It’s Claire who shines. Is she clairvoyant? Psychic? An Empath? I haven’t decided yet, but I like her. Awesome Character!

Ryan’s tech skills are tested as the FI team finds more and more clues to unravel the mystery.

Surveillance is the name of the game as everyone is watching everyone else… not sure exactly what they’re seeing. Add a mystery player from the past who has no problem killing to get his way and suspense is kicked up and the clock is ticking.

Gobbled this read up in one sitting and am looking forward to more from the gang at Forensic Instincts.

Enjoy!

~~~

Synopsis:

 

WHAT IF YOU FOUND YOUR FRIEND DEAD AND FEARED YOU’D BE NEXT?

Jewelry designer Fiona McKay is working on her latest collection of Celtic-inspired jewelry. She’s excited by the possibilities uncovered by Rose Flaherty, the antiquities dealer helping her research the heirloom tapestries inspiring her new collection. So when Rose calls to tell her she has answers, Fiona hurries to meet her. But her artistic world is shattered when she finds the lifeless body of the elderly woman.

Why would anyone kill such a harmless person? And what if Fiona had arrived just a few minutes earlier? Would she have been killed as well? Unnerved, she heads for her brother’s Brooklyn apartment seeking advice and comfort.

Ryan McKay, Forensic Instincts’ technology wiz is not amused by his little sister interrupting his evening with his girlfriend and co-worker, Claire Hedgleigh. But when Ryan and Claire hear the details of Rose’s murder, they fear that Fiona could be next, and quickly assume the role of her protectors. What they’re unaware of is how many people are desperately seeking the information now buried along with Rose.

A former IRA sniper. A traitorous killer who worked for the British. Two vicious adversaries taking their epic battle to America. A secret Irish hoard as the grand prize in a winner takes all fight to the death.

As the story woven into the tapestries passed down from McKay mother to daughter unravels, Forensic Instincts realizes that Fiona and her family are in grave danger. Together, the team must stay one step ahead of two rival assassins or risk Fiona’s life and the McKay family tree.
