After long years in the line of duty as a ‘Soul Taker’, Kate is worn out.

When she gets a new job offer from the ‘Powers Above’, she accepts her new job as a Guardian gratefully without knowing that her teacher is one of the most powerful beings in existence, the Archangel Raphael.

Along with Raphael, she takes on her new task and the connection between them grows.

Raphael helps, protects and supports Kate, but suddenly, she becomes a target for the Demons of Hell.

Raphael realizes that Kate means more to him than he expected, which causes him to fight furiously against danger. If he fails, Kate’s future will contain eternal darkness, evil, and torture.

    Kate’s job as a Soul-Taker has been weighing heavily on her especially when there are children involved. Now she is given a new job as a Guardian Angel and her teacher is none other than Archangel Raphael (Rafe). Rafe and Kate will be working together for at least three or four years while she learns everything she needs to know.

    A fight between demons finds her in Hell in the hands of Abbraxxas whose nickname is “The Butcher” because of his love for torture. When the Archangels finally rescue her she is near death and Rafe is always by her side. When she is well enough she is put through weeks of vigorous training to get her back in shape and during this time Kate and Rafe’s feelings for each other grow.

    Kate appears to be a constant target for evil and the reason is finally revealed by Kate herself when she remembers something from her childhood. Of course there is no way I will reveal this important piece of information. The very next time she is caught off guard she finds herself face to face with Lucifer himself and he knows what she is capable of and wants her. Archangels to the rescue once again but there is much more to this story that I can reveal without giving too much away. There is no fun in reading a book when you know all the answers in advance.

    I loved this book, a book about good vs. evil and a book filled with wonderful characters and a beautiful romance. I look forward to more in this series and truly highly recommend it.  I actually read this book in a few hours that was how interesting it was.

    Title: Magic in Her Touch
    Series: The Gifted Book 2
    Author: Donna Dalton
    Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance
    Publisher: The Wild Rose Press, Inc
    Release Date: November 14, 2018
    Pages: 216

    Herbalist Moira Devlin is a woman imprisoned by the gift she must hide and the past she must elude. She is asked to care for the people of Mineral when the town physician unexpectedly passes. To please her mentor, she agrees and only uses her healing power when necessary and covertly, just as she was taught. All is well until a new doctor arrives and threatens her newfound freedom.

    Doctor Anson Locke has traveled to the Indian Territories to escape the memories of the family he couldn't save. He doesn't count on a distraction as lovely as Moira Devlin, a peddler of snake oils, just like the one who poisoned his wife.

    Can Moira and Anson overcome their pasts and find love?

      Reviewed by: Linda TonisMember of the Paranormal Romance Review Team

      The Indian Territories, 1877 only in book two Indians are not the problem. Mineral is a mining community that is growing and with the death of the town doctor Moira Devlin is asked by Mildred Campbell who runs Seaton House, the orphanage for the gifted to step in and help. It has been five years since Moira was saved by Meredith and Preston Booth and now she wants nothing more than to be trusted by the townspeople and to be able to administer to the sick.

      There are some in town who have been helped by Moira’s potions and trust her but that trust is slow in coming from the others. The arrival of Dr. Anson Locke leaves Moira’s chances of staying and helping a long shot. Anson distrusts potions and believes that those who use them are nothing but snake oil peddlers. Begging for a chance Anson gives her one month to prove her worth without using anything but her own knowledge. What he doesn’t know is that there is much more to Moira than just the potions she makes, she can heal herself and others by touch. If Anson knew that she would certainly be shown the door.

      When men begin to show signs of illness, an illness that both Moira and Anson believe is caused by arsenic poisoning his first thought is it was caused by her, but she hasn’t used any potions lately and could they be potions she gave out before Anson stopped her. Crushed at the very thought that anything she did could be the cause of harm to anyone she and Anson begin to test the water. When the water all proves to be negative for arsenic they search elsewhere and find what they are looking for. Was Moira to blame? Sorry I am not at liberty to say.

      Feelings between Moira and Anson grow and just like in book one with Meredith and Preston her secret could cost her a chance at love and happiness. We know Meredith and Preston’s story and the outcome but will it be the same with Moira and Anson. The only reason that this book did not get five stars like book one was because at this point the story felt a little predictable even though Moira faced a whole different set of challenges, ie, hatred and someone from her past looking for revenge, but the love story was basically the same.

        Meredith Talbot has a secret. In fact, she has nine secrets – her own and those of the eight orphans at Seaton House, a home for children. Each of them has a special talent that if exposed would get them labeled as witches. It is her responsibility to protect the children and their secrets and keep them safe from persecution. Marauding Indians force them into a nearby fort where their safety is threatened by fanatical townspeople and a captivating army officer who try to unmask the children's extraordinary abilities.

        Lieutenant Preston Booth has one goal – to serve and protect his country. The military is the only life he has ever known. It’s the only life he wants. When a child is abducted and Preston goes after the culprit, Meredith has a vision of what will happen to him.

        Does she risk everything by exposing her gift? Or keep her secret and risk losing him forever?

          Reviewed by: Linda TonisMember of the Paranormal Romance Review Team

          This book takes place in 1872 in the Indian Territories where life was anything but easy. Meredith Talbot ran an orphanage for eight gifted children, children who could talk to animals, move things, hear other people’s thoughts and then there was Meredith who had visions of what would happen in the near future.

          Indian attacks by renegades have caused the army to send Lieutenant Preston Booth to bring Meredith and the children to Fort Dent for protection and although hesitant to uproot the children Meredith knows that she has to protect them from danger. The first meeting between Preston and Meredith was not great, both not thinking to kindly about the other even though they both had to admit to themselves that there was a physical attraction.

          Preston is a graduate from West Point and the army is the life he wants, he does not want to be tied down to a wife and definitely not to children who he was taught should be seen but not heard.  Meredith is quite aware of what is important to Preston but in addition to his dedication to the army she cannot reveal her gift or that of the children. As their attraction gets stronger the reasons remain the same for why they will not pursue a relationship, but we all know that sooner or later the heart wants what the heart wants.

          The renegades are burning down homes and that includes the orphanage leaving Meredith and the children without a home. Insisting that she and the children remain together at the fort she is given the jailhouse to live in. Meredith’s aunt is travelling and trying to raise funds for the orphanage and Meredith is left doing her best.

          I absolutely loved this book especially the children who in spite of having to hide their gifts every once in a while let them out. Meredith and Preston are wonderful characters as well and we watch as Meredith has to make a decision that could cause trouble for her and all the children, a decision she is reluctant to make but knows she has no choice. Of course there are characters in this book that I absolutely hated, I know hate is a strong word but well they deserved to be hated. Women who pretended to be godly while being anything but. Then there is Finley the Indian Agent, well he was one that I would have loved to see taught a lesson by the Indians themselves lol.

          Now that I finished this review I can go and begin book two, can’t wait.

          When the cards are stacked against you, the Kings will even the odds.

          Eduardo “Lucky” Morales is a fighter, from his childhood days in Cuba to his time as a Special Forces Green Beret. Scarred by the wars of his past, Lucky has learned nothing lasts forever. Guarding his heart is second nature, and getting emotionally involved is not an option. As co-owner of Four Kings Security, Lucky works hard alongside his former brothers-in-arms and fellow Kings, but he also plays hard. Flirting with sexy Texas cowboy and detective, Mason Cooper, is too much fun to resist, until Mason turns the tables on him.

          Mason Cooper may not be a soldier, but he’s fought his share of battles as an openly gay cop and now a detective for Major Crimes. Mason has no idea when things changed between him and Lucky, but the gorgeous, fiery Cuban has turned his world upside down. When a mistake leads to his suspension from the force, Mason turns to the least likely person for help: Ward Kingston.

          Determined to keep Mason at arms’ length, Lucky is surprised to find the man at Four Kings Security. The Florida nights might be getting cooler, but the heat between Lucky and Mason burns hotter with every passing moment. Working private security can be dangerous and unpredictable, but so can falling in love.

            Charlie Cochet is getting in the groove with this series…..This is the best in it the 3rd in the series. We know ‘Lucky’ aka Edwardo Morales and Police Detective Mason Cooper….They sorta have a past and in this book they get a chance at a future.

            Lucky is one of the owners of the Four Kings Security with his military brothers. Mason’s trials as an openly gay detective has worked very hard for the respect of others in his department forgets to disclose he has taken cough syrup for a drug test and is suspended pending the investigation.

            Unable to stay home and not work  during this time, Mason goes to ask for a temporary job with the Kings. Of course he is paired with the Lucky the hot Cuban and between the two of them trying to keep it a working relationship the hotness steams up my kindle.

            Between the hotness, the storyline was exciting.  As a tried and true fan of Ms. Cochet’s fabulous series THIRDS,  I liked this series but after this book I really look forward to more….

            Series: Secrets of Redemption Book 2

            How many more are going to die because you refuse to remember?

            Becca would like nothing better than to put the past behind her and focus on making Redemption her home. But what do you do when the past refuses to stay buried?

            Becca still can't remember the night sixteen-year-old Jessica disappeared from a party, never to be seen again. Which is bad enough (especially since she was supposedly the last person to see Jessica alive), but it's not the worst …

            Strange events are making Becca think there's a link between what happened to Jessica fifteen years ago and the darkness happening now.

            With help from her friends and her teenage crush, Daniel, Becca races against time to uncover the truth about Jessica before another sixteen-year-old girl is doomed to the same fate as Jessica …

              Review by Sylvia A. ReddomMember of the Paranormal Romance Guild Review Team

              So in this second book, following IT BEGAN WITH A LIE, we find our heroine, Rebecca (Becca) is still living alone in her Aunt Charlie’s old house. Except she is never alone.

              Neighbours (aka old customers) are all coming around looking for the renewal of her Auntie Charlie’s “tea” products; her step daughter Chrissy (who was a pawn in her former husband’s scam to steal her inheritance and the old house) and her cousin CB who just shows up.  Becca’s bad former husband Stefan is refusing to give her a divorce, and has been arrested for all his wrong doings against her. Police hold out little hope of getting any of her inheritance money back.

              Friends Daphne and Mia are still around to support her and give her advice and guidance. That and feed her vivid imagination with tons of conflicting ideas about what really happened to their old friend Jessica who just disappeared.

              Margot, the foster mother to Becca’s step daughter Chrissy, says the girl is starving herself. Despite Chrissy being a part of her father’s plan to hurt her stepmother, Becca, is not willing to leave her on her own.  So Chrissy comes back to live at the old Auntie’s house.  She along with Becca, spirits and strangers abound around the old house!

              Daniel her old high school beau is around but working as a policeman, Celia is married to his best friend Barry and not very warm to Becca. Another neighbourhood girl who goes out with them at times is Janey.

              Oscar a black cat adopted her and helps with keeping her company as she rattles around the old empty house. Her cousin CB shows up from time to time (her only cousin from her Mother’s side, with his reddish blonde hair, not bad looking either) but he has a life back in New York.

              Chrissy comes home with her friend Brittany a striking blonde who is the spitting image of Jessica. Strikingly like Jessica. Scarily like Jessica. She must be related but how?

              Old friends want to catch up – so old pals Daphne, Barry and Celia, Mia, Rich and Becca’s cousin CB go out to a local bar. Immediately Celia starts insinuating that our Becca knows more than she admits. Over and over the group keeps bringing up the mystery of the disappearance of Jessica, 15 years ago.

              Becca is overwhelmed with the stories  – from Mia: who cannot get over the loss of their friend without explanation;  Rich: who thinks he knows what happened; Daniel: who isn’t talking about much of anything except the cop shop work and his new fiancé Gwyn: who focuses her attention on keeping Daniel away from Becca at all costs. CB is there to calm her and stay with her a bit. Good old reliable cousin CB who she has known her whole life, always there when he can be.

              Our dear girl Becca gets feeling very uncomfortable and wondering why she ever came back home.

              Seems there is a Peeping Tom reported around town right when poor old Becca finds a footprint in her garden right under a window – same spot where she thought she had seen someone looking in one night!

              I recommend that you just need to listen to the characters. They fill you in – each on their own perspective and in doing so; you are given pieces of a puzzle.

              Sometimes you are thinking about Jessica, the “disappeared”, other times your focus is brought back to Rebecca and her friends and always lurking in the background is Aunt Charlie, Mad Martha and the whole house history.

              As you try to find out what did happen to Jessica, you are taken down a few pathways. Just when you think you have it all figured out, and each character figured out  – in pops a new angle or new person with new “old” information about what did happen 15 years earlier. Or what they thought happened.

              Becca is pulled back and forth (and takes you along with her) every time she runs into her old beau Daniel – and his on again fiancé Gwyn – until she sees Gwyn without  her engagement ring and Daniel starts asking her a lot of personal questions.

              You are never really sure what will happen and where that will take Becca.

              So back to the spooky old house – if you dare. We find out (via Daphne) that those 15 years ago, at the so called “going away party” for Jessica and Mia, Jessica had a big fight with Rich (who had a crush on her). She was screaming that Rich just “did not get it” and that “evil had taken place” there. The exact same thing that Becca’s stepdaughter Chrissy had muttered while sleepwalking at old Aunt Charlie’s house – and apparently what old Mad Martha had uttered many years before!!

              Is the house haunted? By who – or by what? What evil lurks there?  Did it take Jessica away? Was she dead? Did I mention that Maude a local homeless woman keeps popping up in front of Becca hissing “You know?”

              Is the hair standing up on your neck yet? It should be.

              Mia, always ready to talk about Jessica’s disappearance fills Becca in on a lot of details – which Mia thinks are super important. There were strange incidents right before and after Jessica “disappeared.” Like Jessica’s Mom wanting to send her away because she was acting strange and recounting dreams she was having of her Uncle Jesse warning her of “evil”. Mia shares that a missing suitcase with some of her clothes (apparently taken with her if she had run away) could not have included any of Jessica’s favourite clothes…they were all still in her closet! Something that Mia pointed out, as her best friend, she would know.

              Throw into this mix Pat, her Aunt Charlie’s old friend, who bugs her daily for more “tea” that her Aunt had made, tells her she is haunted.

              Local animals start going away and some are found, well dead. Then so is Pat!

              Becca cannot tell who is lying to her, about what, and why. Who knows more than they are saying? Was Jessica taken by someone? Is she having dreams or hallucinations when she thinks she has visit from Aunt Charlie – and now Pat too? Was Pat right about a “Devil” being near?

              You can easily plan a plot that includes any one of a number of these so called “friends”. However, subtly at first, building ever so slightly to a sudden surprise piece of information….. this story pulls you along with it.

              At times dragging you past nearby spirits and “evil” things, it will entwine the past with the present. Then the plot takes a wee twist and you will be, well “surprised” to say the least.

              You will love it. Oh but don’t turn the lights out…or stay overnight alone while reading this one.

              Enjoy!

              Title: New Tricks
              Author: Andrew Grey
              Genre: M/M Romance
              Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

              In matters of the heart, there’s no such thing as business as usual.

              Thomas Stepford spent years building a very successful business and now at thirty-nine, he wants a quieter life. With his parents needing help, he decides to return home. He can’t get away from business completely and needs an assistant—but the man who is hired isn’t quite what he had in mind.

              Brandon Wilson, the ink on his degree barely dry, needs a job, and his mother helps him get one as Mr. Stepford’s assistant. Thomas doesn’t seem to remember, but Brandon worked mowing the stunningly attractive older man’s lawn years ago. Thomas was Brandon’s teenage fantasy, and now he’s Brandon’s boss.

              Thomas and Brandon are both determined to keep their relationship strictly business, but the old attraction is still there. They learn to work together even as the tension between them reaches the boiling point. But just as they start to surrender, Thomas’s old life in New York calls him. Even if he resists that pull, can their newfound relationship survive when Brandon receives the call of his dreams... from Hollywood?

                Reviewed by: Ulysses Dietz Member of The Paranormal Guild Review Team

                “Love doesn’t just plop in your lap like some saloon hooker in an old Western.”

                Every inch the classic m/m romance, New Tricks presents us with an age-gap duo and a teenage fantasy come true. Brandon has dreamed of Thomas since he was fifteen and first saw the young entrepreneur shirtless when he mowed his lawn in Colorado Springs. Thomas, on his side, left Colorado for New York and expanded his business into a corporate powerhouse, developing commercial real estate and amassing millions with his best friend Blaze.

                Looming middle age (i.e. 40 in this universe) and accumulated stress moves Thomas to return to his hometown, both to be with his aging parents, and to achieve something closer to quietness than he’s known in a long time. When he discovers that his new assistant is none other than the cute teenager he vaguely remembers from his own younger years, the one who mowed his lawn way back when, he is thrown into a brief midlife crisis. This is both because of Brandon’s youth, but also from the scars – literal and figurative – that another workplace romance has caused.

                This is not a high-angst romance, and that’s fine with me. This is about two men who are drawn to each other in spite of a significant age gap between them. The elder has achieved his dreams but finds himself still missing something. The younger has yet to attain his dreams and is torn because of his genuine love for his employer.

                Both Brandon and Thomas are appealing characters, and in spite of their complications, not terribly complicated. Ironically, Thomas is close to his parents, who embraced his gayness without question, while the much younger Brandon has been rejected by his parents and has turned to his grandmother for the shelter and support he needs.

                Ultimately, the undergirding story here is that things change, lives change, and everyone must figure out how they will face change when it presents itself. Nobody knows where life will take them, even with the most carefully laid-out plans.

                There’s a lot of love to go around in this classic story, and Grey delivers it with his usual aplomb and gentle hand.

                Title: Cursed
                Series: Coven of the Raven Book 1
                Author: Shona Husk
                Genre: Paranormal Romance/Witches

                Oskar Quigley knows exactly when and how he’ll die.

                Living with a death curse isn’t easy, but after generations of research handed down to him he thinks he knows how to defeat the Thomas, his great uncle and a witch gone bad who caused the problem. There’s just one thing he never accounted for: another victim.

                Mylla has been Thomas’s servant for as long as she can remember, but her memories can’t be trusted. The marks on her wall add up to decades, and her diary is a muddled collection of rambling. When Oskar arrives to tend the gardens she needs to warn him that bad things happen, difficult when she can only talk on Thomas’ command. But she doesn’t need to talk to steal a few moments for herself in Oskar’s bed as she tries to convince him that magic is real.

                With time running out and Thomas’s suspicions growing, Oskar is forced to act. But if living with a death curse is hard, learning to live is even harder.

                  Oskar Quigley was taken into the Uncommon Raven Agency, a coven that saved him from going astray but a coven that refuses to initiate him because of the Quigley bloodline. Not having been initiated into the coven he has never learned the secrets that could help him in his guest. His great-great-great Uncle Thomas was responsible for the curse that has caused the death of the Quigley men at the age of 30 and now Oskar is only three months away from that same fate.

                  Refusing to just give up and die he is determined to put an end to the curse and his great-uncle even though many others have tried and failed. Oskar accepts the job as the new gardener for Thomas but as soon as he enters the home he realizes that death magic is everywhere and his uncle is much stronger than him. He asks for help from the Goddess Morrigu but she only tells him that he has to get over his fear of life and not his fear of death. Not much help but Oskar is determined to put an end to his curse.

                  Thomas is using death magic to stay alive draining blood and the life force from his maid Mylla and the life-like statues in the garden, and by life like I mean it literally. Every ten years Thomas hires a new gardener and Oskar knows his time is limited. He is on his own and not a very strong witch in spite of his attempt to strengthen his powers on his own.

                  Mylla is unable to speak and walks around in a trance leaving Oskar convinced that she is under his uncle’s control. She is able to speak only when Thomas talks to her and I won’t go into the other unimaginable things he does to her or how long she has been under his control. Thomas is unaware of the fact that Mylla is beginning to get some control back and each night she writes down what has happened to her knowing that she will forget everything by the next day. It is Oskar that seems to free her mind up even more and although she can’t communicate with him verbally she does so with pen and paper.

                  Oskar is unsure of Mylla and if she is there to trick him and reveal what they say back to his uncle but before long he realizes that she is as much a victim as the statues in the garden and the Quigley men. I won’t reveal what happens and whether good wins over evil, I will leave that for you to discover and I am sure you will be happy you did. I look forward to more in this series.

                  There is magic in Malsum Pass…
                  For Allison Harris, the only thing to look forward to around Christmas is the extra money she could earn in tips working as wait staff for the ritzy holiday parties on the mountain. After all, when you’re alone like her, Christmas is just another day on the calendar. But when her car leaves her stranded on the side of the road, in the middle of nowhere, with an empty wallet, and a blizzard breathing down her neck, she has no choice but to accept the hospitality of others as she takes shelter in the small town of Malsum Pass.
                  Zachary Pierce is larger than life, with a sense of humor and playful nature that has Allison quickly forgetting her worries, as her attraction to the man grows. It has been so long since she’s taken a moment and just had fun, but thanks to Zack, she can’t help but reconnect with her forgotten sense of whimsy, and with Christmas fast approaching, Allison feels the spirit of the holiday take hold.
                  Just the scent of Allison had told Zack that she was his destined mate, but this blizzard that had brought them together, wouldn’t last forever. He needed to work fast if he wanted to keep her, and what better way, than to show her the true magic of Christmas?

                    Allison Harris’ hopes for making extra money at a Christmas party in the mountains are short lived. On the way to the party she discovers her pet ferret Pip has somehow managed to join her in the car where he is busy ripping apart the upholstery, it is snowing, there is no cell service and her car is dead. With no other choice she begins to walk towards Malsum Pass but with the snow and icy wind she is having a difficult time until a stranger comes along and offers assistance.

                    Meanwhile in the woods is Zachary Pierce who scents his true mate. Zachary is a wolf shifter and he follows the scent to the town diner where he discovers his mate and his father. Allison has very little money and lives from paycheck to paycheck and now she has to find a place to stay while the town mechanic tries to piece her car together as cheaply as possible. Unfortunately the town bed and breakfast is full giving Zack the perfect opportunity to invite Allison to stay with him and his family.

                    Zack needs time to get Allison to love him before he reveals what he really is and hope that loving him will keep her from running away. For the first time in years Allison is surrounded at Christmas time with family and her feelings for Zack are growing. This will be her best first Christmas in years and when her car is fixed she is given the choice of staying over the holidays or leaving for home. Allison doesn’t need much time to think it over because staying and being near Zack is exactly what she wants.

                    Welcomed by Zack’s entire family she begins to feel at home but Zack reveals he has a secret to tell her and he won’t do it until after Christmas. Will this Christmas bring the happiness that has eluded Allison for so long or will Zack’s secret be too much for her to accept.

                    Another wonderful visit to Malsum Pass and I hope there is more to come.
