Forgotten, Maggie Shayne

forgotten

Ash is a slightly claustrophobic investigative reporter on the trail of a serial killer, who thinks his Ms. Right is Suzy Homemaker.

As part of his investigation, he’s pretending to have amnesia.

Joey is a Harley-riding psychic with a penchant for caves and a vested interest in catching the same killer.

As part of her investigation, she’s pretending to be Ash’s wife.

Neither can admit the truth, nor deny the passion that flares with every touch, and might just cost them their lives.

I got this a long time ago and finally read it, but I wrote this review before I realized that the author revised it and made it a second installment in the same series. I leave this post up and will only change it once I’ve gotten to the (re)published books.

A deadly alien arena isn’t the place to fall in love…

but if she’s going to have any chance of success, she needs help.

Hazy memories push her to find two males. She doesn’t know their names, or where they’re from, but she recognizes them the moment she sees them, and her heart tells her they are hers just as much as she is theirs.

Together Aria, Tirox, and Kix fight to free the beings enslaved with them and take down the Overlord, all while trying to understand the soul-deep bond they share.

Their Invasion, Marissa Farrar

invasion

It happened in the middle of the night.
Asteroids raining down on Earth, destroying buildings, killing people.

We thought that was the worst of it, but then women started to go missing, and we knew worse was yet to come…

I, Camille Harran, a planetary scientist at one of the world’s numerous Observatories, should have predicted it.

Together with my team of men– head of security, Aleandro, studious meteorologist, Casey, and tattooed, dark haired Mike, who is head of communications –we do everything we can to figure out what’s behind the attack on our planet.

But when the government decides the Observatories are best for coordinating their teams, we find ourselves having to deal with strangers as well. They’re army men, and government officials, and among them are men more beautiful than I’ve ever seen.

What secrets do they hide, and will I, or those I love, survive their invasion?

When I Fall in Love, Lynn Kurland

Trickery, Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington

trickery

Willa Knight: Dweller. Slave. Non-magical being.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.

At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them… until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world — a position that she definitely did not earn.

Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

Either way, she is in trouble.

When she meets him again, she thinks it’s fate… especially when he turns out to be her professor, and she catches him pleasuring himself in his office.

She’s always thought of herself as shy, timid, and boring, but when confronted by the evidence of his desire and the sensual blaze of Professor Matthijs de Graaf’s leonine eyes…

Diana just had to ask: That’s for me. It’s it?

Summer Court, SM Reine

summer court

Half a year ago, Samita Madin shared one steamy night with a friend — what she thought would be just a fling with that firefighter her mom didn’t like. But she couldn’t stop thinking about Slater Reinhard in the weeks that followed.

Especially once she realized she’d gotten pregnant from their tryst.

Samita had every intent of staying in Toronto, keeping the baby a secret from Slater. But then demons attacked North America in a massive catastrophe known as the Breaking, which let Hell pour onto Earth. Separated from her family, and injured in a collapsing building, she has no choice but to let Slater protect her– and their unborn baby –from the preternatural onslaught.

But now Slater’s one of the preternaturals.

He’s been bitten by a werewolf since the last time they saw each other. He’s changing from a hero firefighter into a monster with urges that he can’t control. A lot of those urges have to do with Samita.

He only needs one glance from Samita to vow he’ll get her and their baby through the end of the world. And Slater has every intent of claiming Samita as his mate.

Forbidden Witches, SM Reine

Beautiful woman with long hairs

In a week, straight A student and total good girl Leah Todd is supposed to graduate with her bachelor’s degree.

Then she receives a mysterious tarot card in the mail and everything changes.

The tarot card seems to serve as a VIP ticket into a show by a metal band called The Forbidden. She’s never heard of them before, but the instant she lays eyes on the lead singer, Rage, she knows that she’s much more than a fan.

She’s found where she needs to be.

Weirder still, the band agrees. They’ve been waiting for a tarot witch like Leah to save Graham, a dying werewolf, by mating with him. The problem is that Leah’s not a witch, she doesn’t believe in magic, and she quickly falls for the wrong werewolf. But Donne doesn’t seem to return the feelings. In fact, he might kind of hate her.

As high priest of his coven, Rage has solutions for Leah. All she needs to do is surrender her life to the coven, the werewolf pack… and to him.
