Biker Babe in Black

Biker Babe in Black, Book One, The Chromes and Wheels GangBiker Babe in Black, Book One, The Chromes and Wheels Gang by Debra Kayn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Margie is trying to live by her own means without her family taking care of her. She has had a streak of bad luck and has gone through several jobs on her road to independence. Remy is a man who can get whatever he wants but is tired of people always wanting him for his money and not for who he is. Unfortunately he seems to be the cause of Margie losing two of her most recent jobs. Remy finds her fascinating and wants to help her, so hires her for a housekeeper, what happens while she is living under his roof is a fun read.

Their story is a wonderful account of two opposites finding love, with the complications of family, past loves and prejudices.

Loved this story and I am looking forward to reading the next Chrome and Wheels book about Reefer.

Kindling The Moon

Kindling the Moon (Arcadia Bell, #1)Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arcadia Bell is a bar owner with a big secret that is about to surface. Seven years ago her parents were accused of murdering three leaders of magical orders. So all three faked their deaths and went into hiding. They split up to be less noticeable and Arcadia forged a life for herself. Now her parents have been spotted and The Luxe Order (one of the more powerful orders) is trying to find them. Arcadia wants to help prove their innocence so goes about finding the demon that was known to be at the murders seven years ago.

A trusted friend directs her to a enigmatic man living with his son in a nearby town. Lon Butler is a famous photographer raising his son and collecting rare occult books. He also is an empath, something that is a little disturbing to Arcadia since she has things to hide and strong feelings for Lon.

Lon agrees to help do research to find the demon and as they embark on the search for the demon, the story takes you through several twists and turns with outcomes that surprise you.

Loved the characters in the story, Lon's son Jupe is wonderful and hope to see much more of him in future stories.

Loved this book, I believed in the characters, the relationships and the story. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Vacation? Really?

So I am off work this week. Not that I want to be or that I would have picked this week but here I am...looking at at week off work.
It's called a Furlough - time off work without pay. Love the time off - hate the without pay. I get it, we are in horrible economic times and I am all for doing my part to help keep my job but sheesh, this is the third in three years. I am beginning to think about my vacation days with these 5 days included. I may miss them if we ever have a year without them.
I have so far been very productive in the first two days. Two closets cleaned and two golf lessons. #WIN.
I plan to shop tomorrow (not spend much) and maybe tackle another closet. Hmmmm. I do have another golf lesson on Thursday and hair appointment on Friday. Wait, I am in the negative now with all this spending and no money.
Well, I will enjoy my week off because I will eventually get to go back to work for pay unlike so many other people in this world.
Have a great week.

Sins of the Angels

Sins of the Angels (Grigori Legacy, #1)Sins of the Angels by Linda Poitevin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alexandra is a homicide detective that has a past she does not want to remember and a bloodline she does not know about. Trent (Aramael) is an angel that has been assigned to find his brother (again) and send him back to Limbo for crimes against humanity. Caim has escaped and is responsible for serial murders around the city. While hunting for his brother, Aramael must also be a guardian to Alex who is a Nephilim and not someone Aramael wants to protect.
Sparks fly as they team up reluctantly to find Caim before he kills more. Alex and Aramael do not like each other and although there is something unmentioned between them, they fight it.
Aramael has never heard of an angel being attracted to a Nephilim so goes to find out more information from Verchiel who is the one that sent him on this mission.
Something is not right in Aramael's world and while he is hunting for Caim a force is trying to start a war that would put humans in the middle and possible peril.
A great thrilling story with twists and turns that keep you turning the page. Alex and Aramael are full of angst and have ugly pasts that follow them throughout the book. The secondary characters are also interesting and hope to see them in the future. This book ends with the overall story continuing into the next book so I can't wait until it comes out.

Val's Rancer

Val's RancherVal's Rancher by Debra Kayn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Val McDougal is a successful business owner in the small town she and her sisters grew up in. The only man Val has ever loved is walking back into her life after two years and she is more scared than ever that she will make a fool of herself.

Sam is returning to his hometown to take over his grandfather's ranch and correct the mistake he made of walking away from the best thing to happen to him - Val. He just hopes she feels the same for him as she used to, before he broke her heart.

Sam and Val had a relationship two years ago but Sam felt he needed to see the world while riding the rodeo circuit and he felt Val was too young to settle down for forever so he told her to grow up and left. Val took his advice, went to school and came back to run a successful bar/restaurant.

Val is emotionally drained, not only does she have to deal with Sam's return but she is also dealing with her father's sickness. She is sure that feelings for Sam will cost her more than she can give.

A wonderful sweet romance that had me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I laughed and cried reading this as Val and Sam deal with their feelings and the sisters deal with their father.

Loved Val and Sam, the chemistry worked and you really believe the feelings they have for each other. Looking forward to more!
