NEW RELEASE REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Nightwalkers by Jacquelyn Frank


I'm so pleased to help Jacquelyn Frank celebrate her new release, the grand finale in the Nightwalker series!



From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the final chapter in the Nightwalkers saga! As the momentous showdown with a powerful demon unfolds, a passionate encounter breaks the ultimate taboo.
 
Kamen is a Bodywalker, an ancient soul reborn in one human host after another. He’s also a prisoner of his own kind: for it was Kamen who released Apep, the deadly god who threatens the existence of their world. To atone for this grievous error, Kamen accepts an urgent mission: to convince the other nations of the Nightwalkers to set aside their centuries-old conflicts and band together. If he fails, all will be lost. And no tribe presents a greater challenge than the Wraiths, the spectral beings who are feared and despised for their lethal deathtouch.

Kamen makes first contact with a stunning, ghostly pale beauty named Geneviève. Part Wraith and part human, scorned as a half-breed, Viève shares the hunger for redemption—and for connection. Her scintillating touch holds the kiss of death, and yet it makes Kamen feel more alive than ever. Soon his lips are pressed against hers, sending Viève into fits of desire and forging a bond that breaches the divide between them. Now they must unite all the Nightwalkers, from Vampire and Shadowdweller to Djynns, and fast—for Apep is ready for war.

MY REVIEW:
What a beautiful cover. I find Jacquelyn Frank to be a wonderful story teller and enjoyed her story arc for the series. Such fantastic descriptions! I have greatly enjoyed the others in the series, and this was nice to finally see the dramatic grand finale. The first two chapters had a lot of info dumping, which made for some rough going. But once through that the story flew. Kamen and Gevieve are one hot couple. It was also great to see many of the characters from previous books again.  ]
I’m not sure this would make a great novel as a stand alone. Reading the previous in the series really helped fill in the gaps. So, I do not recommend this as an entry into the Nightwalker series, but it’s a nice conclusion. Overall great series. If you've read the others, then you can't miss this one.

NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: TOUGH LOVE by Lori Foster

TOUGH LOVE - RDL banner  

Congratulations to Lori Foster on her new release: TOUGH LOVE.

 TOUGH LOVE is a Contemporary Romance, and a part of Lori Foster’s Ultimate Series, published by Harlequin HQN. 

Tough Love - coverWhat it's about : She's playing hard to get…to win the MMA fighter of her ultimate fantasies in a sultry new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster 

Vanity Baker loves a good, clean match, but she's not above playing a little dirty. She's wanted Stack "The Wolf" Hannigan from day one. Seems as though the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack's past steps out of the shadows. Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he's the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they're much more than friends with benefits. He's ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who's tamed him for good?

MY THOUGHTS:


This is the third book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate Fighter series. No need to worry you can’t follow, if you missed the other books. It works as a stand alone.

In this novel we get the story of Vanity who makes MMA fighter, Stack, an offer he couldn't refuse in order to get him to be her wedding date. Of course, the offer is guaranteed bedroom activity. But much gets in the way of these two making good on Vanity’s offer. There are moments of heartbreak, betrayal, highs and lows. This author is such a master at characters. The two are certainly a hot couple. Whew.

However, there are so many external threats all over the place in this novel that the book sometimes lost a bit of direction while I was reading. It moves quickly to the end, but there didn’t feel like complete resolution of the issues, making me wonder if I must wait for the next book.
Overall, a good read. If you love this author’s work, grab it now.
