Christmas at Dove Creek


She rides like an angel and she’s a crack shot. And Lily Starr is determined to shepherd a helpless group of outcasts from Missouri to Wyoming by Christmas—including a pregnant woman whose blessed event is drawing near. So encountering handsome Thorpe Turlow along the dangerous trail is a welcome unexpected gift, for he's as formidable as he is reserved. Besides, understanding this gentle, secretly wounded man is another challenge Lily isn't about to resist...
After the heartbreak he's found, Thorpe just wants to retreat to his peaceful Dove Creek ranch. But he's never met anyone as resourceful and straightforward as Lily. Somehow, she's reigniting his faith and giving him the courage to trust again. And if they survive the arduous trip ahead, he'll do whatever it takes to give her a lifetime of joy and love…


I rarely give out five stars, but this one is defiantly a five star book. From the very first page to the last you can’t stop reading.  First we meet Thorpe and become very intrigued with him and can’t wait to find out more about him.  Then you meet Lily and you can feel the connection between her and Thorpe and can’t wait until Thorpe realizes that he’s in love with her. I’ve read other books written by Scarlett and this is by far her best.

With all her books the plot is fully developed and wonderfully brought to life. The editing is perfect, I didn’t find any errors, which I feel take away from the flow and overall enjoyment of a story.

Is this book priced correctly?  The ebook is at the top of what I’d pay for an ebook as I live on a budget and won’t spend more than the price listed for this book.  The paperback price is very fare.

Drakon's Promise (Blood of the Drakon)

Drakon's Promise (Blood of the Drakon)
By N.J. Walters

Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.

He's both.

He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.

When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.

Well that just sucked me in and didn't let go!

Great start to the new series.  Lots of interesting plot twists and action.  It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it.   I truly didn't know how it would end.

Darius is HOT and not a jerk!  You don't have to hate him and then learn to like him.  You like him from the start and learn to love him.  He doesn't go all alpha male and make all the decisions.  He is powerful in his own right and very interesting.

Sarah is a great female lead.  She never did anything dumb or make a bad choice having you bang your head in your kindle.  She was smart and didn't take any crap.  Loved her.

Interesting take on knights and dragons.   The characters are intriguing even the bad guys!  Can't wait for more!

Received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley for a honest review.
