Excerpt From Her Timeless Obsession By Tina Ordone


Excerpt From Her Timeless Obsession

Tina Ordone


"Are you quite all right, Honoria? You look frightfully pale."

Honoria turned toward the voice, which was male and ever so whiny.

"I am not feeling quite the thing, Bart. Of a sudden, I have an excruciating headache."

"Well, for goodness sakes, that is good fortune. You may have just provided us with a capital excuse to avoid this soiree. I can't imagine why we were invited, given that I have made no secret for my dislike of our host."

The crested, well-sprung carriage creaked along London's streets. The steady clip-clopping of the horse's hooves on the cobblestones pounded through Honoria's head. The megrim had come upon her so suddenly and so profoundly it caused her to develop concern. These things usually increased in intensity gradually, not slammed in like bulls breaking china.

"I will do no such thing. We have been invited for the evening, and I will attend for the evening. You are welcome to see me to the door and leave, but I am staying."

"You are an impossible baggage," he grumbled.

"I love you, too."

The rest of the drive was mercifully short and quiet, but for the incessant clopping of hooves. Honoria was not prone to illness and this ache in her head annoyed her at best, given this could prove to be a very important evening.

The carriage stopped before a three-story townhouse with dark red brick and bowed windows facing Bruton Street. The red door and large brass knocker were very much like those at Danby Terrace.

Honoria's heart beat rapidly, which made her head throb all the more. Tonight was to be a most auspicious occasion, as she could well meet her future. A liveried footman, replete with white wig, opened the carriage door and aided in her alighting. The house was brightly lit, as would be expected for such a grand gathering.

"Are you all right? I can make our excuses straight away, before the carriage pulls off."

"You must stop, Bart. You've seen me safely to the door and you may leave if you so choose, but I am staying."

Before he could protest further, they were greeted by a distinguished gentleman, presumably the butler. With an ever so proper bow, he ushered them into the immense entrance hall and on to a large drawing room. The sound of harp music wafted over the assemblage and chatter from all corners hummed around them. Finely dressed gentlemen and ladies milled about, as they smiled and complimented one another.

A lovely woman in her late forties, possibly early fifties, approached with a welcoming smile upon her face. Her hair was brown, flecked heavily with silver and her blue eyes shone with genuine friendliness. Honoria was set at ease in an instant.

"Welcome, my dear. Please, my lord, I am sure you know most everyone. I must take your sister with me."

With no further words, Honoria was being propelled across the room. They passed the pianoforte and the lovely porcelain statuettes of Greek goddesses which seemed to adorn every flat surface in the room. The lovely long mullioned windows were dressed with elaborate claret-colored draperies, held open by large gold ropes. It was breathtaking in its beauty. Danby Terrace had been a bachelor establishment for so long, she'd forgotten the importance of a woman's touch.

Her hostess motioned for a gentleman to come forward, which he did with the aid of a black cane, his limp being rather profound. He was quite handsome and Honoria was sure her heart skipped a beat.

"Dear, our guest of honor has arrived. Miss Honoria Danby, I wish to present my son, Jeremy Saintaubin, Marquess of Galmore."

Before her stood the singularly most stunning man she had ever laid eyes upon. Her tongue seemed to swell in her mouth, making articulation not only difficult but near impossible. While he steadied himself with his cane and offered her his other hand. She placed her hand into his gloved palm, she immediately felt his warmth radiate up her arm. She felt her face flush, which by the slight chuckle he emitted, he very well noticed.

"It is an honor and a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Miss Danby. My mother has told me much about you, to the exclusion of nearly every other sensible thing that could be said. I find, however, that her description of your beauty was vastly lacking." He bowed deeply, releasing her hand as propriety dictated.

Honoria curtsied, causing the marquess to chuckle almost inaudibly. "Well, done, Miss Danby."

"Thank you, my lord." She could think of nothing more to say and with that, her head commenced pounding as though someone were playing drums behind her eyes.

"Would you care to stroll around the room, Miss Danby? I could introduce you to those assembled."

"That would be very nice, my lord, though I do recognize several people already."

Galmore offered his arm and escorted her from group to group. He acquainted her with everyone who'd so graciously accepted his mother's invitation, so as to make it less obvious that the others were simply window dressing for his mother's grand marriage plan. Clever woman, the Most Honorable Dowager Marchioness of Galmore, Jeremy thought. Her matchmaking knew no bounds.

Above all else, Honoria was thrilled to meet her boon friend, Cornelia Nevison. They had been friends for an age and chattered like two birds when together. Honoria made the appropriate introductions, but noticed that Cornelia didn't seem anxious to forfeit the company of Thomas Lawrence even for a few moments.

"She seems quite lovely," the marquess said, which caused Honoria a flash of confusing jealousy.

"Yes, she is and she is quite smitten with Mr. Lawrence."

Galmore laughed and Honoria prayed he hadn't suspected her motive behind the discourteous remark.

"It appears my mother has planned dancing at our little gathering. Might I engage you for the waltzes as well as the supper dance?"

"Why, my lord, we will have tongues wagging."

"I am your host and you are the guest of honor. It seems perfectly acceptable to me."

Honoria smiled broadly. She was so at ease by his side, she felt as though she'd somehow met him before.

Honoria scanned the room, smiled at acquaintances, observed the interactions of those in attendance. "Your sister seems most affable, my lord."

"Yes, Martine is wonderful. She is quite the society maven. I am afraid that the same cannot be said about your brother. Pardon me, but does the man ever smile?"

"I am afraid he is rather churlish by nature."

"I remember him being under my command in the Light Infantry. He seemed to have an instant dislike for everyone around him."

"That would be Bartholomew Danby." They both laughed quietly. She enjoyed the shared jest. The sound of his deep laughter warmed her through.

The marquess seemed to harbor no wish to share his company with anyone else. They danced a waltz, though she sensed it was difficult for him. She admired him for making the effort, and she worked very studiously not to step on his foot. Dancing had never come easy to her, more for lack of attention to the dance master than natural ineptitude.

The grand march to the dining room was led by the Marquess of Galmore and Honoria, followed by the dowager marchioness and Bartholomew, Viscount Greenley, then the rest of the invited guests. Small place cards indicated where each person was to sit and to her delight she was seated to the right of her host with his mother on his left. Honoria was thrilled, but sensed that she had somehow been in this exact scene before. She couldn't understand, but sense it she did.

"May I say, Miss Danby, that your dress is most lovely," Galmore said with a whisper.

Whispering her reply, she said, "Thank you, my lord. It is one of my favorites." She'd chosen her green sprigged muslin for the occasion, knowing how it complimented her flaxen hair and green eyes.

Galmore talked of his country estate, which interested her immensely. Her happiest times had always been at her family's estate in Kent.

"So your tenants raise sheep, my lord?"

"Among other things, yes and quite successfully. I was quite pleased with last year's wool yield and this year promises even greater strides."

Jeremy changed the subject entirely when he asked, "Miss Danby, what do you enjoy reading?"

Honoria sensed this was a test. "I read in three languages, my lord, but especially enjoy Greek. I have read all of the tragedies in their original form." She felt quite pleased with herself.

"Are we a bit of a bluestocking?" he whispered.

She nodded, embarrassed now at her braggadocio. Bluestockings were not particularly revered amongst those on the marriage mart. However, she was in the soup now, so she forged ahead. "I do enjoy reading, yes. I've no patience for embroidery or singing. God did not grant me a pleasant singing voice, and I have steadfastly refused to inflict it upon captive ears."

Galmore burst forth with a belt of laughter, which drew the attention to himself and the lady to his left. She felt her face flush once again.

"I find you delightful, Miss Danby, and your voice is --" He was stopped in mid-sentence, when, from two seats away, Lord Greenley cleared his throat rather loudly. His obvious displeasure at the tone of Galmore's conversation was evinced by the white straight line in the place of his mouth. His usual pinched mien was aided by a deeply furrowed brow and a chin that quivered furiously.

"Is there a problem, Greenley?"

It was Bart's turn to flush, though Honoria noticed that his anger had already reddened his ears and nose, with his cheeks just slightly less so.

Honoria gave her brother an evil look, one that was obviously well understood, for he coughed and feigned choking. His stare didn't leave Galmore, and Honoria suspected that she would hear no end to his unreasonable tirade once they were alone.

* * * * *

Galmore watched with amusement as Greenley fumed. The man had never taken to his subordinate position and had an instant dislike for Galmore's authoritative manner. The two had gotten into several skirmishes in Italy, just before the fateful Battle of Maida, where the British soundly defeated the French within a quarter hour. However, within that short period of time, a French ball tore through Galmore's thigh, destroying muscle and sinew in its path.

Injured but still able to give orders, Galmore ordered Greenley to take some of the men and forge ahead, bayonets drawn and join the rest of the infantry. Greenley's hesitation, or as Galmore had termed at the time, cowardice, had caused several lives to be lost needlessly. Reports were files and punishment was discussed but in the end it was recommended that Greenley resign his commission and return to his former indolent life, which by all that could be observed, he was living with aplomb.

Though they attended the same social gatherings, the enmity between the two was palpable. It was in fact, a source of entertainment for Galmore, because he simply enjoyed needling the portentous arse. It was such an effortless amusement.

"Greenley, I simply asked your sister about herself," Galmore stated in his best imitation of hauteur. "She is indeed a delightful creature."

Greenley sputtered, his doubled chin bounced for apparent want of a rejoinder, but none was forthcoming. He chose a simply nod and began to study the fine Wedgewood china.

Galmore wondered how Lady Greenley could have birthed as wondrous a daughter as Honoria and a pompous popinjay such as her son.

"Gentlemen, we will dispense with our usual secluded port and cigarillos and join the ladies for more dancing." He stood and all followed suit.



Galmore offered his arm to Honoria and escorted her to the ballroom. "If you don't mind, my lord, might we continue our conversation?"

"I would indeed enjoy that. Would you care to see the portrait gallery?"

"Indeed I would." As they walked toward the long room where the unsmiling visages of his ancestors hung, she asked questions about his forebears. She learned that his family dated back to the Conqueror, a prestigious claim for any noble family.

After they viewed several antiquated, disapproving personages, an inexplicable cold frisson slithered down her spine.

"And of course, by now you must recognize the personage in this one."

Before her was a handsome black-haired soldier replete with scarlet uniform, Hessian boots and an enigmatic smile. Her hands perspired and she was sure she felt a bead of moisture slide down her back. Her breath was short and there were strange sensations in her breasts and lower.

"Are you quite well?" He asked.

"Ye-e-s," she stammered, not understand completely her reaction to his portrait.

"Have you not seen a soldier before, Miss Danby?"

She stammered as she stared up at the portrait, "It is just that I have a distinct feeling I have seen this portrait before."

"Really?" He asked with a velvety tone that slid provocatively over her skin.

"I can't explain it, but there is something quite familiar about this." She ran her thumb over the brass plaque at the base of the gilded frame. It read, 'Jeremy Saintaubin, 1803.' "You look quite distinguished, my lord."

"Why, I thank you, Miss Danby. Mama insisted I have this portrait done in uniform. It was before I inherited, when I thought I had many years to live my life before I was saddled with the responsibilities of the title." His voice took on a tone of sadness, as though he reflected upon the past. "Little did I know . . . ."

Honoria looked at him. "Little did you know what?"

He looked pensive and somewhat uncomfortable with the tenor of the conversation. After long moments of silence, during which she expected he would not answer, he did just that. "Little did I know that my life would change so dramatically with the meeting of such a lovely lady."

Honoria's cheeks flushed at the compliment, while she sensed he meant something far different. "Thank you, my lord."

His demeanor had changed; he seemed sad somehow. "We really should join the others, Miss Danby. They will wonder where we've gotten to."

Honoria felt a loss, for she seemed sure an important moment had passed before she knew how to retrieve it.

I want to thank author Tina Ordone who allowed me to re-post her excerpt of her new book Her Timeless Obsession which is now available for purchase over at Noble Romance Publishing.

Review: House of Immortal Pleasures By Katie Salidas


Explore the sensual side of the vampire world at the House of Immortal Pleasures.Blindfolded and kidnapped, Daphne is whisked away to the famed, House of Immortal Pleasures, a Vampire-run Brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. Sometimes the only way to mend a broken heart is to get back in the saddle. At least that is how Daphne’s friends see it. And since Daphne isn’t showing any signs of letting that happen, they take it into their own hands. With a few shots of liquid courage, a pat on the ass, and a donated gold card, Daphne is unwillingly sent into fantasy room 123 to meet her creature of the night, Connor.It’s Connor’s job to seduce and entice Daphne to try all the expensive, sexual services on the menu. And he is prepared to do just that, until he peers into her mind and sees the damage done by her broken heart. After learning of her past pain, Connor’s plans change. No more is this a game of seduction to pad the pockets of the brothel owner. Connor decides to lavish Daphne with real attention and affection. Something she desperately needs. He will heal her heart the only way he can, by showing her she is beautiful, desirable, and sexy.


My Thoughts:

Katie contacted our blog and requested if we would like to review her book "House of Immortal Pleasures". She send us a description of the book and I have to say I immediately told her "Yes". Now I have stated in other posts I am not a "paranormal" fan but I can get lured into a good story. And I did and must admit that book was so juicy and sexy, wow. I wouldn't mind having me a "Connor" and a "Tongue Lashing" to go with it. Had my friends kidnapped me and taken me to a place like that I'd probably be super pissed but definitely interested. You can have your every desire and fantasy met is something you can't resist. And with a super sexy vampire such as Connor, Whoa! But Daphne was dragged to the "House of Immortal Pleasures" depressed and broken hearted and came out...well you have to read it to find out. But I can say one thing! I would have LOVED to be in Daphne's place at that time. LOL. My only complaint would be that it was a short story, rather than a long book. I would have loved to read more of "Connor" and "Daphne" But that doesn't make the book any less full filling. Definitely a "Sinfully Tasty Read" 5 out of 5 stars.

Interview with Morgan Kearns author of "Fade To Black"



I read "Fade To Black" By Morgan Kearns and the book was sooo good. During my read, I was in contact with Morgan and told her about my progress and what part of her book I was at. And when I finished reading the book, she took a few minutes out to discuss her books and characters. She is so sweet and so down to earth. So I took the chance and asked her if she would be available to answer a few questions for our blog and she was pleased to do so. Below are some questions myself and Skyla11377 asked her.





Wanda: What was your inspiration behind writing "Fade To Black"?
"They say that you should write what you know. And I know news. I worked in the news industry for nearly 10 years. It's a fast-paced and exciting industry with deadlines that consist of "I need that in 30 seconds!" Rich and Kate's relationship developed along the way and there were many moments I wondered if they would truly ever be happy."


Wanda: How long did it take for you to finish writing "Fade To Black"?
"First word to publication, Fade to Black was probably a year and a half. There was about four months in there where kids were home and I didn't work on it much, though."


Wanda: Was this book based on any experience or story you ever worked on while your worked as a journalist?
The book was based on generalities, no specific person or story idea was used. The newsroom in Fade to Black does resemble one of the ones I worked in, though. I worked with some great News Directors over the years, but never was one as nice as Dale ... LOL!


Wanda: What did you dream of being an author when you were young?
"Honestly, no. Tragic story ... When I was in 8th grade, we were asked to write a story. It was a big part of our grade. I was really excited and turned it in. The teacher returned it, full of red marks, and a big ol' D on the top. Her notes said that it was horribly written and that the characters lacked realism. I didn't write again, until about three years ago. From the feedback I've gotten from my readers now, I've improved *grins*"



skyla11377: What was the scariest part about writing your debut novel?
"It's the scariest thing I've ever done! Fade to Black is like a baby that I'm presenting to the world. It's truly putting yourself out there for whatever criticism people feel like throwing at you. Luckily, the majority of feedback I've gotten has been really positive. People love Rich and Kate and Jesse--and even Shea."



skyla11377: How much of yourself or people that you know, if any, did you put into your characters?
"I didn't think I put much of myself into the story. However, some of my close friends have picked out phrases or manuerisms that they say are "me". As for the rest of the characters, I'll never tell ... LOL!"



skyla11377: If you were stuck on a deserted island what 5 must have items would you have?
My family, of course. My laptop, with unlimited battery life. My bulldog, Gus. He's the greatest dog in the world, and my family would miss him horribly. Sunscreen because I tend to burn (blame it on the red hair). And I dont' think I could live without a floating library stocked with all my favorite authors!



skyla11377: What do you have coming up next (i.e. another book, or perhaps a book signings)?
"My mind is forever weaving new plots in my head. Unfortunately, having four children isn't conducive for a lot of writing time. I'm writing a short story (25,000 wrods) for a contest. I'm working on editing the first novel in an upcoming vampire series."

Copies of Fade to Black are available on my website, currently with free shipping.

I want to send a huge THANK YOU to Skyla11377 and the crew at GCR for this opportunity. You guys are awesome! Thank you for taking the time to review FADE TO BLACK! ~Morgan



- Thank you Morgan for taking the time to answer some of our questions! We cannot wait to get lost inside of your other books. Looking forward to it! :0)

Born to Bite by Lynsay Sands


Mass Market Paperback, 374 pages
Published August 31st 2010 by Avon

But with all three of his late wives meeting unfortunate and untimely ends, is this sexy immortal a lover or a murderer? That's what Eshe d'Aureus intends to find out. As an enforcer, it's her job to bring rogue vampires to justice, even if the rogue in question makes her blood race red hot.

Armand knew she was trouble the moment Eshe roared into town on her motorcycle, clad in tight black leather. She claims she's hiding from dangerous fiends, though he suspects something more. But after three wives who've all had trouble remaining, well, undead, Armand is reluctant to open his heart again. Then strange accidents start to happen, each deadlier than the last, and Armand realizes he may not have much time to prove he's a lover, not a slayer.



Another great story by Lynsay Sands. I love the Argeneau series and wish I was apart of their family LOL.

In Born to Bite you finally get to hear Armand's story and everything about his past. Including how all three of his wives died. Armand goes on a mission along with Eshe to try to find out if his wives deaths were really an accident or if they were murdered.

Of course in the beginning, Armand has no idea that Eshe was really sent there to investigate him and find out if he has anything to do with their deaths. He thinks he is doing Lucian a favor by hiding Eshe on his farm. One thing leads to another between the two, and you have an exciting little trip.

What I liked the most about this story was, that Armand had given up on finding love and practically lived alone on his farm and with his workers. He kept his distance from his family feeling like anyone he was around dies. He never spent time with his children or barely even called anyone. So when he meets Eshe and realizes it's another shot at love his whole world changes. Same goes for Eshe, who lost her life mate in a battle. They were both given the chance to love again and be happy.

Though some parts were very predictable, I still very much enjoyed Born to Bite. Of course Lynsay Sands never fails when it comes to the romance parts. Just like the other books in this series, I laughed and fell in love with the Argeneau family all over again. I found Lucian very funny in this book. I love him mated!

Now, the wait for the next Argeneau story. Which is going to kill me.


I give Born to Bite Four Stars!

Being Naughty: The Life & Times of an Erotica Novelist By: Laura Stamps (Review)


What happens when an erotica novelist, whose life is as sexual and lusty as her novels, creates a wildly popular blog to chronicle her sexual exploits? And what happens when those erotic blog posts are gathered together and published as a series of memoirs? You get an irreverent, sex-obsessed, hysterically funny read. One you'll be laughing about and recommending to your friends for years.

Meet Laura Stamps, an erotica novelist, exhibitionist, voyeur, lust addict, hedonist, and sensualist. A woman who will tell you sex is her life as calmly as if she were discussing the weather. Well, just before her naughty lips curl in a lusty grin.

Okay, you've been warned...

About the Author: Laura Stamps is an award-winning erotica and paranormal romance novelist, whose daily blog is wickedly naughty. Her work has been published in over a thousand magazines, literary journals, and anthologies worldwide. The recipient of a "Pulitzer Prize" nomination, she is the author of more than forty-five books. A Wiccan Faery Witch, Empath, and Psychic, Laura enjoys writing hot, sexy novels about contemporary Pagans living in the Deep South.


My Thoughts

"Being Naughty" is Laura Stamps memoir. Very interesting read. Kind of hard not to be sexually excited when reading her books. But not only do you get "excited" because of her blogs, you also learn things. Now I may or may not have learned this in school. Maybe I cut class that day or just wasn't paying attention. I've learned about a drug back in the 50's that was given to pregnant women to help them not miscarry (as told by Laura) and with this drug, she's suffered many side effects. One including the location and sensitivity of her G-spot.

Even though she writes erotica, she still researches to learn new sexual techniques. She even bought a book called "Tickle His Pickle: Your Hands-on Guide to Penis Pleasing" by Dr. Sadie Allison. I guess her motto goes "With practice makes perfect". She also mentions a perfume called "Realm for Woman" that has human sex pheromones that make men crazy. This lady loves her husband and loves sex so much that nothing is off-limits to make sex more interesting and more fun.

I think with this book, Laura encourages women to not become that boring wife that many tend to become. To be sexy for your husband. That there is no limits when it comes to pleasuring your man and having a healthy sexual relationship. To keep open the barriers or communication and never give up on your marriage. "Being Naughty" is a definite "Sinfully Tasty Read".

P.S. That's her modeling for her cover. Isn't she a sexy thang?

"The Rune Witch Series" is an erotica novella trilogy, featuring Noelle (a feisty alpha Rune Witch) and her HAWT boyfriend Wynn (a sexy shapeshifter).  Wynn and Noelle appeared in two of "The Witchery Series" novels ("What Witches Want" and "Call of the Witches") as secondary characters.  Now this lusty couple has a series of their own, which takes place during the hot summer months of August and September in sultry South Carolina.  Follow these two as they go from one sexcapade to the next, while Wynn tries everything he can think of to convince commitment-phobic Noelle to marry him.  Good thing he never plays fair (naughty grin).  Keep a cold drink handy for this series.  You're gonna need it! 

"Sex Magick: Book One of the Rune Witch Series":
Noelle Wylie is a Rune Witch, and at thirty-five she’s got it all.  This year she bought her dream home.  Then she allows Wynn, her darkly handsome, shapeshifter boyfriend move in.  One evening Wynn gives Noelle a book on “sex magick.”  Intrigued, she decides to give it a try.  However, just as she experiences some of the best sex of her life she discovers Wynn has a hidden agenda.  Uh-oh!"

Review Of The Witch And The Wolf By Tricia Schneider

The Witch and the Wolf

By: Tricia Schneider
Categories: Mainstream Romance, Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Vampires/Werewolves
Word Count: 18,419
Heat Level: STEAMY
Published By: The Wild Rose Press
Age: 18 and older


Lord Jeremy North's curse is to become a werewolf during every full moon, turning into a bloodthirsty monster that kills with no remorse. When he finds a woman nearly frozen upon his doorstep, his sense of honor compels him to help her, even at the risk he might kill her himself.
Lillian Merriweather hadn't planned to get caught in a blizzard while traveling the English countryside. Nor had she planned on finding refuge in a house full of secrets. But Lillian has secrets of her own. And what she's running from is not far behind...

For the first time I am at a loss for words. This story had the potential to be a really great story but it came and went to quickly (no pun intended). Although I did enjoy the story it started a little slow for me but then just when I was really starting to getting into it, it was over and done with not to mention there were so many possible scenarios of things that could potentially be beginning to happen and it was just over. Jeremy and Lillian's story was too short. The blurb was great you know the thought of a werewolf and a witch coming together who knew what mysteries and secrets this could cause upon discovery. As for the chemistry of Jeremy and Lillian it was rushed way too fast. I mean, I believe in love at first sight but this was like I am attracted to you, and then you blink, and now I love you. I hate to be negative about a book but just because I may not appreciate it doesn't mean someone else won't with that being said on a scale of 1-10 I give this book a 6. I really can't give this book a higher rating because it was really just to rushed. The story line had great potential and if given enough of a chance this book could have been really great. I have been searching everywhere on the internet to find out if maybe this was just a short story. I only found one review on Amazon.com ( http://www.amazon.com/Witch-Wolf-ebook/dp/B003WQBDX2 ) that said this was a short story. If it is a short story then the events in this book would make more sense but, in the end I would still feel robbed of a truly great story.

Review Of Embracing The Wolf By Catherine Bybee


Ebook format: 177 pages
Published: June 30th 2010 by The Wild Rose Press
Link to Wild Rose Press: http://www.thewildrosepress.com/
Age: 18 and older

Blurb:
Werewolves come in two categories, good and evil. Although Richard Ritter's family has encouraged him to make the change for years, he never considered embracing his wolf until he meets Kate Davis. One night with her, however, and his life changes forever.

After a horrifying evening of violence, Kate Davis' life is turned upside down. Richard offers more than security; he offers her passion, something she hasn’t experienced in years. Falling in love with him was easy, but once she learns what he becomes every month her fear of the unknown threatens their future.
WOW, what a great read this story is. I knew the blurb sounded good but since I am a die hard Vampire fan I wasn't sure if I would truly enjoy this book. This book made me want to make a space for werewolves in my life. Richard and Kate's story was so intoxicating. I was so deliriously drunk on their instantaneous chemistry. I had so much trouble putting this story down. Who wouldn't love a handson stranger who wants nothing more than to protect and love you. This story also shows Kate's fiery spirit as a devoted single mother. She makes you believe if she can make it on her own than there is hope out there for all single mother's who may not think they can handle it on their own. I wished Richard and Kate's story wouldn't end. If you believe in Soul-Mates and love werewolves than you REALLY NEED to read this story. On a scale of 1-10 this book gets a BIG GIANT 10.
