My Seductive Highlander: A Higlander Hearts Novel #4

My Seductive Highlander: A Higlander Hearts Novel #4
By Maeve Greyson

Though part of a legacy of time-traveling sisters, Lilia Sinclair is planted firmly in twenty-first-century Edinburgh. Her granny’s matchmaking with thirteenth-century Highlanders isn’t about to lure her into the past, especially as ancient Scotland enters troubled times. After all, Lilia is blessed—or cursed—with dire prophetic visions. To protect herself, she’s put up an icy emotional wall no man could cross—until a pair of gorgeous, rippling arms breaks right through.
Graham MacTavish is pure trouble. Once the dragon bound to Loch Ness, he’s transformed into a philanderer of the first order. In fact, because of his dalliances with other men’s wives, a rival clan wants his head on a pike. Before he provokes an all-out war, Graham is banished to the twenty-first century, where he must win Lilia’s hand—or return to die. But after meeting a lass as fierce as any Highland warrior, Graham knows one thing: life with Lilia, in any century, is a fate to embrace.

A great ending to the time traveling sisters. I would have given it 5 stars, but there was really no action till the end and it was just slow and kinda boring.

I loved Graham he was so funny in the 21st century. I loved how he would say something was magic or he couldn't believe what it was. He was charming yet awkward all at once. Hot and sexy too.

Lillia was interesting, but I don't think the author touched on her empath powers and how Graham would help her. It felt like that part was left out. I loved her love of animals and how they loved Graham too.

The ending allowed us to see the sisters and their loves for a moment or two.

Good ending great series. I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley

Finding Gavin (Southern Boys, #2)

Finding Gavin (Southern Boys, #2)
By C.A. Harms

Gavin was a broken hearted cowboy from Savannah...

The one she fell for even though he tried to warn her away.

Maria's entire life had been one rejection after another, always going after things that were just out of reach.

Gavin was no exception.

She wanted him, so desperately...

But life had a way of making things unattainable, at least for her anyway.

Just when things began to change, once again the darkness glooms, and Maria finds that her happy ending is again...


Great story. I really enjoyed it. The characters grew in every way and the love was all over this book.

The topic of adoption was wonderful and made the story even better. Gavin was wonderful once he got his act together. He was warm loving and caring, everything Maria needed. Yeah I just inserted myself as her since we share the same name. Too bad she and I don't look anything alike.

Great read I will definitely read the next one! Enjoy!

Burning for the Dragon (Fated Hearts Club, #1)

Burning for the Dragon (Fated Hearts Club, #1)
By Cecllia Lane

A reluctant ruler...
When his brother is killed by a dragonslayer, Luca de Rege becomes the unexpected heir to the Dragon Throne. Used to answering only to himself, he’s now responsible for finding a mate and ensuring that the rapidly-dwindling dragon shifter population doesn’t go extinct. He doesn’t have high hopes for his visit to the Fated Hearts Club… until he spots the curvy temptation sitting at the bar.

A woman alone...
After a shattering betrayal, Penelope Minett has given up on love. Though a friend talks her into attending an event at the Fated Hearts Club, she’s resigned to a life of solitude. The last thing she expects is for an impossibly sexy, irresistibly charming billionaire to sweep her off her feet.

A desperate attack...
Just as her defenses start to melt in response to his fiery desire, a threat from Luca’s past takes aim at the throne by targeting Penelope. He’ll stop at nothing to rescue her and claim his mate -- but will he be in time to stop a cruel, relentless enemy from destroying their future?

I liked the story at first, but then it just lost its gusto. It touched on so many topics, but then just brushed over them. The villain needed more explanation and development and how could she kill a royal? For being a "Royal" Luca sure didn't have the characteristics of a ruler or a dominant. He never seemed to take charge and if there was a hierarchy like explained then none of what happened should have.

Oh well....it did have cool dragon shifters and hot sex!

Lord of the Runes (Viking Lord, #1)

Lord of the Runes (Viking Lords, #1)
By Sabrina Jarema

Following his father’s murder, Eirik Ivarson plunges into a maelstrom of brutal warfare. As outsiders threaten his homeland and all he holds dear, Eirik vows to maintain his focus and avenge the jarl’s death. In his quest for revenge, he will leave everything behind, all he knows, and all he loves.

Asa Sigrundsdottir, a spirited shieldmaiden with warm brown eyes, is wary of the golden-haired warrior discovered half-frozen in a storm. It is clear Eirik is a man of valor, bestowed with the gift of reading runes and destined for greatness. And despite the shadows in her past, he chooses her to help him on his journeyBut when their bond is tested, it will take the strength of a hero to keep their love alive . . .

I started out really liking this story and then winter set in and it dragged like no tomorrow. I mean like longer then the winter in the north....boring.

The plot was very predictable. The terrible thing that happened to Asa was terrible, but not something that should have made her feel so damaged...but who am I to judge. I just didn't feel the pull between the H and h. There was little romance between them....insert yawn.....

I liked the mystical part it was interesting. The story was full of Norse history and culture.
