Nana Malone

Nana Malone

USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she “borrowed” from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.

My Review:

The Malone’s did a great job again in this story. I loved the way that the characters are so real, down to earth, and likable. Nana and Minx do a great job with their characters. I always like them and feel as if they are so real.

Talia and Cage are both ready for a new life and to move on from their pasts. The only difference is that they have a past together and their future is not supposed to entail them being together. Cage is Talia’s older brothers best friend and she should be off limits to him. Talia can’t get over the kiss Cage and her shared when she was 15 years old. Cage has always wanted Talia, but he knew that Travis, Talia’s older brother and Cage’s best friend would not like it. Travis has always been over protective of Talia and has asked Cage to keep an eye on her while she is at college where Cage attends.

Cage has no idea that Talia returns his feelings or that she has always harbored a crush on him. He wants Talia and he will not give up until she is his. He shouldn’t want another relationship since he just got out of a three year relationship with someone who always got what she wanted, no matter how she went about it. She’s spoiled and crazy, two very bad things to be combined in one person.

I liked this story and enjoyed the fact that the guy was the one who pursued the girl. Talia was determined that she was not going to go down that road again, but one kiss from Cage and that was thrown out the window.

I give this story a 4 star review. I wished that the story would have continued on with the story of Travis finding out about his little sister and his best friend. Perhaps it will be in the next book, Wanton.  I always enjoy reading stories by the Malone’s and look forward to more in the future. This was a quick read, but it was packed with a story.

REVIEW OF “DISHONORED”, BY BETHANY-KRIS @bethanykris @IndieSagePR

DISHONORED Cover

Caesar and Aria are a time bomb waiting to go off. They both have issues that they carry with them at all times and they both generally get what they want, even if they have to be deceitful to get it. I love these two together, they are perfect together and bring out the best in each other. They can be a powerful team if they can get past their hurt and betrayal from the ones that should have loved them.

There are so many parts in this story that had me cheering these two on. I loved how they didn’t shy away from anything when they were after what they wanted. Their destructive ways and confidence is what really made these two characters for me. They each had their loyal friends and their confidants, but they were also loners. The fact that they were both survivors and fought so hard for their place in life made them special. There are some touchy subjects in this story, but the way they were written was great. The unspoken hurt from their past and the betrayal of those they thought should protect them and keep them safe made these two who they are and they are perfect.

I loved this story and really hope there is more to Caesar and Aria in the future. I would also like to read more about Cain and Nico. I think their loyalty and friendship to these characters really added to the story. I give this story a 4.5 star review and look forward to more stories from Bethany-Kris

Review of “Beast”, by Alana Albertson @AlanaAlbertson

A man who was wounded in war by saving his friends and team members from death finds the one woman who looks beyond the scars and temper to find the real man beneath it all and falls in love with him. She’s a woman who has had her share of being seen as only what is on the outside.

Grady “Beast” Williams is a marine who is trying to find himself now that he may be medically discharged from the Marine Corps due to his injuries. He can’t see his life beyond the Corps and the only position he has ever wanted in the Marine Corps is no longer a possibility. Where is his life going? His heroism has opened other doors, but he doesn’t want to go through those doors because of his injuries.

Isabella Cuesta a woman who has a secret and left her public life to be a normal person. She needs money to finish her final college semester because her father decided to dip into her college fund. Isabella is a woman who doesn’t let too many people into her life and she keeps a lot close to her. She will learn that sometimes the people that we least expect to be good for us are the people we need in our lives.

This is a story of Beauty and the Beast in more than one way. Not only from the outside but also from the inside. It’s a true likeness to the story of Beauty and the Beast because Beast not only looks like a monster, he acts like one too most of the time because he’s too afraid to be hurt by people. The only people he lets into his life are the men served with and saved. I loved this story as I do all of Alana’s stories that I’ve read. The men are Alpha males, strong, sexy and sweet, although you wouldn’t know that until you got to know them. I give this story a 5 star review and look forward to more of Alana’s books in her Trident Series, Heroes Ever After and the others.

Review of “Champagne and Spurs: A Military Bad-Boy Romance”, by Simone Scarlet

A proposed marriage of convenience is accepted and everyone is happy, until Lucy meets Charlie’s younger brother.

Charlie Holybourne is a man who is interested in politics and needs to get married to represent the Family Values platform that he is running on. The only problem is that he really isn’t ready to get married and has no interest in any woman enough to get married. His working relationship with Lucy Henwood presents a perfect scenario for both of them. Lucy needs to be married for her family business and she has no prospects in mind. This could be the perfect solution for both of them.

Charlie’s younger brother Harry is a reclusive man who runs a ranch outside of town. Charlie calls to tell Harry he’s getting married and asks Harry to welcome Lucy to the family. Harry reluctantly agrees to meet Lucy and welcome her. Harry was injured in the war and is not a man who wants to be seen by anyone thats why he keeps to himself and stays on his ranch. When he meets Lucy he finds that he wants things he hasn’t wanted in years.

Lucy and Harry have somethings in common and these commonalities will lead to a relationship that neither one expected.

I really enjoyed this book and found the story line to be very deep and sad. I loved how these two found each other and everyone found their true path in their futures. This story was a love story, but it was a bit more to me. It showed how so often people will judge a person based on their appearance or demeanor. Just because someone is reclusive or keeps to themselves, doesn’t always mean that they are a bad person or a grouch. I liked how Simone showed how perception is not always true and that we really shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. The characters in this book were well written and well developed. They all seemed to find their true path and found happiness. I give this story a 4 star review and would like to find more of Simone Scarlet’s books to read in the future.

Review of “The Last Valkyrie”, by Karina Espinosa @TweetsByKarina @agarcia6510

The last Valkyrie_1

She was once a warrior that was destined to be well known. She was her father’s favorite and was hand picked to train with the top Valkyrie to learn all that she needed to learn to be a great warrior. Her loyalty to her father and her position as a top Valkyrie made her decide to stay back when all of her sisters left the humans to fend for themselves, and closed the doors to Valhalla. Now, centuries later she is being framed for murders she did not commit. She’s no longer the powerful warrior she once was, but she still has some power and the will to wield her faithful sword to protect herself and the few people she has become fond of.

Raven Romero is a wanderer who has lived for many centuries. She chose to stay behind when her valkyrie sisters left Midgard. She didn’t want to abandon the humans since her father favored them. Now she was just passing her days by with alcohol and drugs. After many years of living amongst the humans, she discovers that she’s not as invisible as she thought. After she’s framed for murder, she finds that many others recognize that she is a Valkyrie. She has to figure out who is framing her to clear her name and be able to move on, but does she really want to move on? She’s found a couple of friends in Oregon and may want to stick around for awhile. Raven will face a her father as well as someone she thought cared about her, but was only using her to get what he wanted. She’ll have to revert to training as a Valkyrie to stay alive.

Will, one of the arresting officers when Raven was arrested for murder, is a young police officer who believes is justice. He starts to believe that Raven may have been framed and wants to help her. Charlie, a young woman that Raven met in the bar where she was working, is more than she appears. She’ll be an ally to Raven in her search for the real killer as well as her need to stay alive. Raven wants to shelter Charlie and keep her safe because she believes she’s an innocent, but Charlie keeps telling her that she can protect herself.

I really liked this book and give it a 4.5 star review. I really hope there are more books of Raven’s life, and if so I look forward to reading them. I highly suggest this book to anyone who likes the story of Odin, Valkyries, paranormal, or fantasy. It has all of that and more.

MY REVIEW:

Adam “Blade” Garrison is chosen for a specific assignment because of his background. He’s pulled from his SEAL team to work with Ian Black’s mercenary group to infiltrate a suspected criminals business dealings to determine if the new contract with the US military is going to be a case of espionage. His assignment is to be body guard and protector for the wife of a billionaire. The only problem is that Blade was once good friends with this wife when they were in high school. However, she looks very different than she did eight years ago and Blade’s not so sure that he can be impartial to way she is treated by her husband, who only thinks of her as a possession.

Quinn Halliday is resigned to her life as a kept woman by a man who sees her as nothing more than a possession. She just wishes that she could find a way to get out of the marriage and live her life the way she wants to live it. Her chance may come when she is introduced to her new bodyguard. However, she has to pretend that she does not recognize him or he won’t get to stay.

Blade has an assignment to complete, but he now has a new mission, to get Quinn away from her husband who is in very deep with too many criminals to be safe for either of them. He will do whatever he can to keep Quinn safe.

I loved this book and I love the characters in the HOT SEAL Team series. Ian Black is a great character as are all of the SEALs. The characters are all so well rounded and developed and they seem so real. I love that these guys all work so well together and that they can call on each other whenever they need anything, not just as a SEAL Team but as buddies as well. These books always leave me wanting more and this one was no different. I love Alpha males in these books and the women who make them lose their heads so easily and make them so vulnerable. Great book. I give this book a 4.5 star review and look forward to more of the team as well as Ian’s teams books.

RELEASE BLITZ: SOMEBODY TOLD ME (INSPECTOR MARCO #3), BY STEPHEN PULESTON #BOOKREVIEW #CRIMEFICTION #POLICEPROCEDURAL @INSPECTOR_MARCO @BOOKS_N_ALL

BLOG TOUR BANNER - Somebody Told Me

 

Somebody told me coverSomebody Told Me (Inspector Marco #3)

A gangland murder…

When DI John Marco discovers the body of Felix Bevard he knows instantly the killing was a professional hit. But the criminal underworld don’t share secrets easily and with no apparent motive, Marco is forced to delve into Bevard’s murky past to try to find the murderer…

An impossible killer…

As Marco examines Bevard’s past crimes, one name keeps cropping up – notorious gangster Jimmy Walsh. A brutal murderer, Walsh has a motive for killing Bevard and the power to do it, but there’s just one problem – Walsh is already behind bars.
A race against time.

Corruption at the heart of the system seems the only answer. How else could Walsh kill with impunity? But as Marco’s investigation develops, new leads spring from cases once thought closed, and the net closes ever tighter on Walsh. Until Marco’s own family begins to face threats to their life that could jeopardise the whole case.
Now Marco must prove Walsh’s guilt or catch the real killer still be at large, before Marco becomes a victim himself…

Stephen Puleston author photoBiography

I write crime fiction based in Wales and about Wales. The rural landscape of north Wales provides the backdrop to the Inspector Drake novels. And Cardiff the capital of Wales provides the setting for the Inspector Marco novels set in a modern urban environment.
I love the novels of Raymond Chandler, Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham, Henning Mankell, Val McDermid – the list could go on! And I enjoy watching detective series on the television the recent Hinterland series based near Aberystwyth in Wales was great. One of my favourites is the French series Spiral but The Bridge and Broadchurch and the Rebus series with Ken Stott and Kenneth Branagh in Wallander are great too.

I have been on writing courses at the Welsh Writers Centre in Llanystymdwy, North Wales tutored by Matt Whyman and Marcus Sedgwick as well as crime writing courses with Peter Robinson and Andrew Taylor at the Scottish Writers centre.

 I was born in Anglesey an island off the north Wales coast and after leaving school in Holyhead I went to University in London before training as a solicitor/lawyer. I practised in a small family business doing criminal work in the magistrates and crown courts, divorce and family work.
I still live on Anglesey, North Wales near the beach and the mountains of Snowdonia.

 

MY REVIEW:

DI Marco is a determined detective who will go to any length to find the bad guy. His determination can get him into trouble at times but he will get his guy. His team will stand by him even if they don’t agree with his ways at times.

When Felix Bevard is found murdered in a back room of a restaurant the investigation will lead DI Marco and his team to a previous murder and the main suspect has an alibi that seems to be ironclad. The main suspect has a history with the victim and his associates are involved in more than what everyone is aware of.

DI Marco and his team will go back to a cold case to solve the murder of Felix. This book is full of twists and suspense. The determination of DI Marco and his detective work is beyond reproach and he pours his heart and soul into his job. Although he is now beginning to realize that there is more to life than his job and he wants to spend more time with his son and his parents.

I have enjoyed reading the DI Marco books and I hope there are more to come in the future. He’s a great detective and police officer. He doesn’t cut corners when he’s investigating a crime and he won’t let anyone working on his team or for his team cut corners either. He’s determined to solve his cases and his team works very well together and very hard for DI Marco. They may not always agree with his methods or working all weekend long, but they won’t say anything to DI Marco to contradict him.

I highly recommend these books to anyone who likes crime dramas, police procedural stories, or suspense stories. The twists in this story kept me guessing and trying to find the suspect right along with DI Marco. I give this story a 4.5 star review and hope to read more of Mr. Puleston’s books in the near future.
