Synopsis

ALMOST HUMAN – The Third Trilogy
Novella #1 UNITING VAMPIRES (Vampiress Reigning – Part 1)
Fulfilling her destiny as the divinely appointed queen of the vampires is turning out to be a lot more work than Alyson had in mind…
She’s finally gotten her blood lust under control (mostly), talked her vampiress friend Sindy into behaving herself (mostly) and has managed to loosen up her husband just enough to let her have some fun, but being the all-powerful leader of the vampires is a position of politics with little room for playtime. Of course, Allie was never one to follow all the rules.
Visiting her human friends Ben and Felicity makes a nice excuse to shirk her responsibilities now and then, and if she doesn’t pull her mentor Cain out of his sulking, heartbroken shell, who will? The perks of being queen are pretty cool, but a free spirited vampiress with powers beyond belief and an itch… Continue reading

Synopsis

Dax Colyn is one of the bad boys of Willow Valley. A fearless volunteer firefighter and hard ass mechanic, he makes all the woman swoon and he likes it that way. He keeps people at a distance since his mother died. He doesn’t want to let anyone in, much less a woman he knows he could fall in love with.

Ava Anderson keeps people away, too. Haunted by her tortured past and constantly fearful of the future, it’s only her daughter Olivia and Dax’s dad Rowdy that she’s let in.

But when tragedy strikes, it pushes Dax and Ava together, forcing them both to let go of their fears. They soon learn how hard it is to keep pretending and how easy it is to let others in. Especially when those people are family.

“Dax” is the first in the “Bad Boys of Willow Valley” series from author Shannyn Leah.

Undeniable Lover by Rosalie Redd is a fantastic enemies to lovers story. Rosalie Redd always writes fantastic heroes that I can connect to.

Saar, the heroes struggle with his desire for Kaelyn and his loyalty to Noeh, his leader was such a realistic and powerful struggle.

Though the fourth in the series, I felt like I was able to connect to this world and look forward to reading the others in the series. Definitely another 5 star read from Rosalie!

Synopsis

We all have baggage. Real friends help you carry it.

It’s 1983 in Boscobel, Wisconsin, in the southwestern corner of the state, known as the Driftless Area. Ellis Sayre is different. He’s a twelve year old orphaned Native American. His adoptive parents lost a son a few years ago and welcomed him to deal with their grief. While stealing day-old bread for a friend in need, Ellis and his two best friends—George and Mason—witness a murder by a local kingpin. Authorities disagree with their story. They call it made up. The boys are trapped, worried for their lives, sending them on a flight to Grandad’s Bluff in La Crosse, WI, along the Mississippi River. Two peripheral stories about Ellis Abbot—a World War II veteran, and Two Right Feet—an orphaned Native American during early 1800’s, are entwined to unearth Ellis Sayre’s roots. They combine to tell the truth.

Frankie DiGorgio has returned home for the summer to fix up and sell the home she grew up in. But when Frankie discovers Austin Stone is also back home and right next door, her summer suddenly seems more exciting than the motocross tracks she races on.

Austin hates Frankie now.

Unfortunately, they’re next door neighbors again and Frankie and Austin can’t avoid each other anymore. With little more than bitterness, heartbreak, and secrets between them, they soon find themselves reverting to their childhood habits—prank wars.
