On an archaeological expedition, Bayla Gideon, is widowed by a supernatural force and branded with the Hand of Miriam or Knowing Eye. Threatened by evil, she awakens the golem; a mythical man of clay, who protected the Jewish community over three centuries ago.

The golem, Gesher, is surprised. Freedom –by a beautiful, enchanting woman. His desire is to return to the celestial spheres and regain his status as an avenging angel. Yet, Bayla challenges his mind, body and soul. Would he risk his return to the heavens for her?

Besides, dealing with the otherkind, mad inventors and an unrelenting matchmaking aunt, Bayla is equally determined to resist her steamy attraction to the striking fallen angel.


Thrust into a malevolent war, which includes facing Jack the Ripper, they must resist the magnetic pull toward each other, while protecting the world from encroaching evil.

Review: Love at First Date by Susan Hatler



Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she’s signed up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. Learning men’s preferences up front, plus a few weeks of email correspondence, has resulted in two candidates she’s excited to meet in person.

When Ellen’s best friend asks her to baby-sit her beloved pooch, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t stop thinking about. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but Ellen suddenly finds herself signing up for a week-long doggy class to spend more time with him.

Now, Ellen has a choice: Go with one of the logical choices or let herself fall for the one man her heart seems to want.

Review:

This was my second taste of Susan Hatler's work, and I must say her work is absolutely delicious. This is a contemporary romance that is funny heart-warming, and absolutely believable.  The main characters are quirky, realistic, and so very relatable.  This little novella is one of those before bedtime reads.  Its a short, fulfilling read that will send you off to sleep with the sweetest of dreams. Meet Ellen.  She is a this century gal with a logical approach to love, that is until Henery knocks all the logic right out of her with just one look.  In fact, that first look will set the course for this entire romance.  Intrigued?  I actually became misty eyed at the end.  I can't wait for another taste of Susan!!  This book was simply amazing.

HOT SOLDIERS is an exciting new anthology from authors of the bestselling STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE, with the fabulous additions of Charisma Knight and Jamallah Bergman. 
Hot Soldiers features six hot, romantic novellas of strong men and the stronger women who love them. 

COMING HOME by Seraphina Donavan(bestselling author of Dragon's Lair and The Boss' Bad Girl)

Morgan Donnelly planned to live out his days in the military, but an IED changed all that. Returning to his hometown, struggling with PTSD and adapting to a life he hadn't envisioned, he finds himself drawn to the sweet and shy younger sister of his former fiancee. Lexi Flynn has her own issues. The curvy pastry shop owner finds it hard to believe that a man like Morgan would want her. Can Morgan and Lexi overcome their fear and insecurity to claim the happiness that is right in front of them?

WRONG GIRL by Kate Baum

Ernestine “Ernie” Rose learned early on in life from her bitter and angry mother that she didn't need a man to succeed. While she learned those lessons well,  they've made for a lonely life. It isn't until Ernie accompanies her extremely nervous friend on a blind date that Ernie discovers there's more than one way to need a man. Sparks fly between Ernie and the blind date's wingman, Chase. He inspires Ernie to do something she's never done before... let go of her inhibitions. 

THE LAST TOUR by Charisma Knight

Watching his entire unit get cut down in Afghanistan has left Sgt. Sebastian McElvoy questioning his sanity and whether or not he deserved to survive. Coming home to the wife he loves, the joy and peace that Rayna gives him fills him with guilt. But Sebastian isn't alone in wondering if the changes in him will allow them to resume their life together. Rayna looks at her husband and sees a man who is a ghost of his former self. Can she save him, and if she does, what will be the ultimate cost?

THE SOLDIER AND THE WRITER by Jamallah Bergman 

As a romance author, Ione Finn has been making people fall in love with heroes for years. She never imagined she'd make a real life hero fall in love with her. Wounded solider, Sgt. Mark Phillips, has one bright spot in his long recovery, the letters he receives from Ione. What begins as a friendship between pen pals quickly grows into so much more, and when Mark finally goes home, he's eager to turn their long distance romance into a long and lasting love. 

SUSPICIOUS MINDS by Siobhan MacKenzie (Author of 'His Man' Series)

Jordan Blair is the prime suspect in the death of the man who caused him to lose his leg in Afghanistan – his former sadistic commanding officer. Recently promoted MP, Lt Rachel Carmichael, is in charge of the case and she is sure she has her killer in her sights. But there’s something about the wounded warrior  that changes her mind.  Rachel is drawn to him in spite of her suspicion. Proving his innocence might just be the first step towards healing…and love.
 
ANGEL WATCH by Leanore Elliott (bestselling author of the Beasts series)

Mags is a cop. Lives it, breathes it, and everything else takes a backseat to it. Sure, she knows that her curvy figure grabs attention, and she knows that her partner has the hots for her. But the only thing she's interested in is tracking the vigilante who's targeting criminals on her beat. There's only one likely suspect for Mags, and that's Rem Tarken, her partner's best friend. The only problem is that this solider and expert marksman ignites. 


Felicity Heaton's : Kissed by a Dark Prince





Olivia thinks it’s her lucky night when a dangerously handsome unconscious fae ends up on her inspection table. He’s her chance to redeem herself with her employer, the demon-hunting organisation, Archangel. But when the tall, dark and deadly immortal warrior awakes, she gets much more than she bargained for… 

Attacked by his enemy in the elf kingdom, the last thing Prince Loren expects when he comes around is a beautiful angel watching over him and medical technology of the mortal realm. Hazy from his injuries, all he can focus on is the pulse ticking in her throat and the sweet allure of her blood.

One single bite reveals she is his eternal mate, triggering a bond between them that will leave him weakened until it is complete… or broken, and pulling Olivia into the crossfire of his ancient feud.

To protect his people and his mate from the machinations of a madman, Loren must risk everything by working with Olivia at Archangel to find a way to break the bond blossoming between them. 

But will Loren be strong enough to place duty before desire and give up the one thing he has waited millennia for and craves above all others—his eternal mate? And will Olivia be able to resist the incredible heat that burns between them and the temptation of her dark prince’s kiss?


My Review:.

Right now....probably until Vail's book (because I love love love tortured heroes).... this is one of my favorites by Felicity.  I liked the concepts she put together when she created this new race.   The facility that Olivia works for is a little curious, and I can see potential for many sub plots.  I really enjoyed Loren's character.  He was very loyal, caring, and self-sacrificing...definitely the kind of model for the perfect leader. The plot was sooo freaking good and the build-up was even better.  The one thing I love about Felicity's books is that she usually blows you away towards the end...this being no exception.  A truly fantastic read!!!

Giveaway and Book Spotlight of Trust by Sherri Hayes





Available 20th March from: TWCSAmazonB&NiTunesKobo
The Summary
Brianna is lost for the fourth time in her life. Each time was unexpected, and each changed the course of her future. The first life-altering event occurred when her mother died, and she moved to Minnesota to live with her father.

The second was when she was kidnapped at the age of seventeen and forced to be a slave. She would never forget those ten months. Brianna thought her life was over.

Everything changed again the day Stephan steamrolled into her life and brought her home to live with him. She had no idea what to expect—what life with her new Master would hold. That first month with Stephan was, in some ways, more confusing than the prior ten. As a slave, she’d known her place. With Stephan everything was new and different. He’d given her freedom and so much more.

Five months after Stephan rescued her, Brianna once again finds her life flipped upside down.
In this fourth, and final, installment of Finding Anna, Brianna must unearth strength she never knew she possessed. Stephan can no longer protect her from the outside world. She must learn to trust herself, embrace who she is, and discover who she wants to be. Only by facing her demons can Brianna find true happiness and peace.


 About the Author
Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.

At the age of thirty, all that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Seven years later, Sherri is the author of seven full-length novels and one short story. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.
