Here are the series I will be reading this Winter

The Night Huntress Collection:
By: Jeaniene Frost

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1)Back Cover:
 Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

My Review
I am a big of The Sookie Stackhouse Vampire Series, By: Charlaine Harris, but I think I found something that compete or just as good. I instantly fell in love with this book more then I thought I would. I sort of melted into my kindle and I finished this book in no time. It's a very creative, lots of action, steamy sex scene, and very likeable characters. I found myself laughing hysterically. Bones and Cat both have a razor- sharp sense of humor. This book is definitely not a let down.

One Foot in the Grave

One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2)
 Back CoverYou can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again.

The Stubborn DeadBack Cover
Rachel Miller thought her next job was a run-of-the-mill haunting. As a member of the Order of Rescue Mediums it's her duty to release trapped spirits from the earthly realm. But when called to client Sylvia Elkeles's house, she finds a wraith who doesn't act like he should.

The Order considers the wraith an extreme threat and Rachel may be forced to use a barbaric ritual to free him—a ritual that comes with a heavy personal price. If she fails to humanely release the wraith, she'll have her supernatural abilities bound.

Between uncovering Sylvia's disturbing motives, and avoiding Janus, Rachel has enough on her hands without dealing with a wraith who may not realize he's supposed to be dead...

My Review:

Rachel Miller is a meduim who work for a agency that help stubborn, restless souls crossover. She recieves a call from Slyvia Elkies, to help her get rid of wraith, that no one could get rid of and almost cost the life of a priest.

I really enjoyed reading this short story. It's a nice quick afternoon read or a nice ghost story. I really enjoyed Rachel personality.I also enjoyed how the authour devolop the plot and kept the climax of very interesting. I will be looking out for more of Natasha Hoar

Last Chance Beauty Queen
Back Cover
Dear Reader,
Gracious me, my beautiful daughter Rocky sure could use my help. I always knew she wasn't much interested in the local boys - but who'd have thought she'd come home with English royalty?

Trouble is, Hugh wants to buy some of our folks' land. We don't want to sell, but Rocky's job depends on her closing the deal. And though Hugh's obviously smitten, I'm not sure he's right for my Rocky. Oh, he's classy and handsome - and you should've seen the way he judged pies and fixed stock cars at our Watermelon Festival! - but what do we know about him, really? I know I sound like a nervous mother hen, but after forty happy years with my Elbert, all I want is to see my little girl find the same.
Well, time for me to quit chattering and get back to Miss Bray's wet set. Always nice talking to you, and remember: the Cut 'n Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon,

My Review

Last Chance Beauty Queen is the third installment of Hope Ramsey, Last Chance Series.Caroline Rhodes(Rocky), formerly beauty queen of Last Chance.She lives in Washington working for a senator when she meets Hugh. Hugh bought some property to build a factory in Last Chance, but the only problem is that Caroline father sits in the area he needs. The land is accessible to the railroad.

Caroline loves her job, but she is caught in a dilemma. She wants to help Hugh relocate and save the golf course. She informs him that her father will not sell his land, but Hugh stills insist he wants to go look at the meet her father and the council. She notifies him that there annual Watermelon Festival is going on, but Hugh says it the perfect opportunity, because all the local town people will be there. Caroline fears returning home, not only due to her job, but the last Watermelon Festival incident still hunts her.

When I first receive this book I thought it would only be just a another contemporary read, but I was wrong. It have so much more going on in this lovely story. The plot is written beautifully, and the author took her time. I love how all her characters have that small town homey feel, coming from a small town myself. This book is feel with comfort its a light read when your at the park or just need a break. Its also have some light comedy and some heartfelt moments.

My Review
Nix is half demon/half human working at a goverment agency in the supernatural division. One day while working she see her former boyfriend Tobias. She remember how he ran off and left her five years ago and desparately tries to control his temper. He also tried to avoid seeing her. But eventually tempatation got the best of both of them.

I received a advance copy of this book that I enjoyed. It was plotted nicely and different from other vampire novels. I adored both the science fiction and supernatural aspect. I also love how the author describe her characters, which makes you want to know more about them.Not to mention, there is a hot pulsing love scence.But,= it wasnt just about romance, although I admit I wish I could have more romance. I felt it was put on the back burner but I do love the action the book is packing.Also the is the first book to the author "Warriors of the Rift series." So I am waiting to see how the character develop from this point.

My Review
Sobek is walking along the beach of Nile River and sees one of his abandon temples. He heard a woman singing and followed the voice which led to Merys. Merys was startle by Bek at first, but later found herself wanting to know Sobek. Merys told him about her life as her family servant and how her family wouldnt give her any dowry.
Every chance Sobek had he would still away to see Merys. However, seeing a mortal a woman is against the law, he still takes his chances to be with Merys. Merys is also risks being caught, by her family. He tries to stay away from her but only find hisself longing to be with her.
I found this book to be a nice late night read. This book is nicely written and I like the storyline that the Veronica Scott have plotted.I think she did very well describing her characters. Though, I wish the story could have been a lit longer,because it wouldve been better. If you looking for a quick read with contains adult content, mythology, Egyptian culture,and paranormal romance its a nice story.

The Viking Sacrifice
by Julia Knight

The Viking's SacrificeBack Cover

Can Einar break his brother's curse in time to save the village and the woman he loves?

Released January 2, 2011              

My Review
This book have two strong heroes. Wilda and Einar. Wilda was a young girl who enjoyed running along the beach and feeling the sand in her toes.Until one day a gang of heathens came a raid her town.

Einar wanted to go on his first raid and show a lot of bravery but instead he ended up witnessing his brother killed his other brother. Then Wilda witness her mother being killed and she called her name and told her to run. Einar told Wilda to run but she ended up helping him from being killed by his evil brother Bausi. Bausi then put a evil rune curse upon his brother. If he told anyone Einar and his younger siblings Sidger

As time went on Wilda was give into marriage by a Thane. Sidger (youngest brother) raid the town, killed her husband, and she became a slave. Staying strong in her Christian religion is all Wilda agreed to go. While working she sees Einar and they both become bewildered. He couldn't believe it was the girl who rescued him from a deadly fate. Wilda couldn't believe herself that it was Einar the young heathen boy.

This story is very beautifully written. This is so much then a typical romance story where the hero always show up to save the lady and whisk onto her feet into a happily ever after. It have a very deepen and heartfelt storyline. Especially how much they both are willing to sacrifice and endure just to keep each other safe
