The Order Box Set ~ Nina Croft

The order

Bittersweet Blood ~ What would you do if you found out that your ENTIRE life was nothing more than a lie? That the world you lived in wasn’t exactly what you thought it was? Welcome to Tara Collins life. Ever since her aunt “died” Tara has come to find out that nothing she thought she knew is the truth & she wants to learn why.
Enter in Christian Roth who runs a PI firm. When this ‘man’ starts looking for the answers, it’s not something that Tara is willing to believe or want to believe.

But willing or wanting doesn’t matter because Christian’s past collides with Tara’s future. Will she be able to make out of this alive? Can Christian stop a demon who wants nothing more than to destroy everything Christian loves?

Bittersweet Magic ~ To avoid being burned at the stake (about 500 yrs. ago) Rosamund Fairfax (Roz) prayed to God but when he didn’t answer, she prayed to a demon (and she got Asmodai) … and made a deal that is almost paid off. Until a psychotic Vamp takes off with the Key. (Lucky for us, there are no individuals who turn this “key” into a human child!) Then he leaves the only Nun marked  but with a message for Piers Lamont.
That simple mission to end the tie to a demon just got quite complicated. Piers is currently the Vamp in charge of the Order … one that Asmodai (Ash in the human world) has told her would destroy her & other “abominations.” After all, why would a DEMON lie?

Piers finds out that the demon queen (and the psychotic vamp) that he imprisoned over 2000 yrs. ago is  free. She wants the key & him back into her life. Only problem is that Piers would prefer to have NOTHING to do with the creature to stole away his chance of being reincarnated.

Bittersweet Darkness ~ To create an amulet (to protect his daughter) Asmodai (Ash Delacourt) becomes indebted to Lucifer. To pay off this debt & have the seal removed, he must begin working with the Order of Shadow Accords. (Yes, there a many questions that come behind WHY Lucifer would want this, but sadly none o them are answered in this story. Fingers crossed as to possible a book simply for that?)
Detective Faith Connolly finds herself wrapped up in a conflict between two organizations … one that has began investigating her former partners new employer & will discover the answer they believe at any cost & the Order. The slime oozing off her NEW boss is just too much for her to tolerate. Plus it is discovered that this organization might be responsible for her mother’s death & the reason she simply cannot/will not believe in anything paranormal.

Can the Order begin preparing Earth for the knowledge that Demons, Angels, Fae, & other paranormal creatures exist? Or will this other organization destroy them before they can get a foot in the door?

Bittersweet Freedom ~ Best way to track down a shifter? Send a werewolf after her!
Poor Carl must hunt down the cat shifter who stole demon gold from Asmodai. Pity that Shera would rather DIE than keep living bound to Asmodai.
Asmodai has turned to Shera’s demon father to take her in because he believes there is an “issue” between Faith & Shera. Shera decides to run instead before she is able to learn Asmodai’s plan.
What Shera does not know is that she is 1/2 demon. Which is why all the changes occurring with her are freighting. Carl knows, but he is under direct orders NOT to tell Shera. But Carl does not know the full extent of Asmodai’s plan either, so he joins Shera on her run. Hoping to convince her that she must return to the demon dimension before the bound destroys her.

 

Ms. Croft has created one hades of a world. Where there are different dimensions for demons, fae & even one for angels. She creates an Order that keeps peace on the Earth, putting a stop to Demon & Fae wars … this Order is run by Vampires. (And from the description of them, SMOKING Vamps out to save the world.)

Manhandled (Hammered #2) ~ Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

Manhandled

Ms. Quinn & Ms. Elliot have created on interesting part of the world.  It is simply amazing that these two women were able to write together & it comes across as feeling like one author.
They have a band with one body guard … yep, just one … and really no security plan set up. Until a stalker attempts to kidnap Faith Keystone at Hunter’s & Kennedy’s wedding!!! If it weren’t for Hunter’s brother, who works for a security firm & is a retired soldier, Faith (aka Keys) would have been gone … for good.
Drugged & waking up in the hospital, Keys finds that she will now have a bodyguard “shadowing” her every move. No more meeting with the fans, not more bar hoping … hades, no more life as Keys sees it.

Poor Quinn Alexander … a man who enjoys when people follow his rules. Keys blares music, letting the world know she is at home, plus she pretty much lives in a glass house!!! What happens when Keys decides to take off? The man tears apart a city to locate her & then locks her down in his own places. Letting her know that these stunts cannot be pulled because her stalker has been following Keys for YEARS!

Add in sexual tension, and from there things go from overbearing to tense. After all,  how you can protect someone when all you think about is the next sexual event?
But the biggest question is ‘why NO ONE can locate these stalker/kidnapper?’

Return of the Bad Boy (Second Chance #4) ~ Jessica Lemmon

return of the bad boy

Who wouldn’t want to help “clean-up” the newest bad boy in town??? Well, it would seem his AGENT would be on the top of that list.
Gloria Shields is a book agent for rock star Asher Knight … and when they had a “relationship” it was destroyed by the fan, who is the mother to his 3 yr. old son.

Sometimes one night stands do come back to haunt you. Or the other party does … and boy did she destroy what Gloria & Asher had.
Problem with that … Asher decides to buy a house in the town that Gloria now calls home. Why? His son lives there, his best friends live there … and of course, Gloria lives there.

I enjoyed reading about the bad boy who was determined to convince his agent that he was the man for her. Sadly, he pulled himself into something he never thought he would get.

Ms. Lemmon has created a humorous tale. One that makes you want to keep reading about the bad boys she has created that are all best friends, along with the women who find a way to “tame” them (NOT … because they still keep that “bad boy” behavior but become family men).

An Unwilling Husband ~ Tera Shanley

an unwilling husband

This is one of those books where the title is why you start reading it. Or maybe that is just me … LOL who really knows. I found this book to be interesting.

Margaret is brought up to be a lady of high society. Named after her aunt, who despised her for reasons she did not learn until she was an adult. Torn from the only person she new as her father at a young age because her mother could not handle the old west town they lived in. Margaret runs from Boston to the place she only hopes will accept her without the harsh judgment that she has received all her life.

Being in Garret Shaw, the only person Margaret has ever loved. Sadly, he sees that her leaving with her mother as a betrayal … not only for him but also for her father. Duty to her dying father forces them to wed … from there things have there ups & downs. But in the end, it comes down to if they can understand & let go of the past.

Ms. Shanley has created an interesting tale that draws you in & keeps you reading. I have read from her, but she has been able to go from one genre to another & still keeps you wanted you to keep reading.

Danger, Sweetheart ~ Mary Janice Davidson

Danger Sweetheart

When I 1st began this book, I wanted to really strangle Blake Tarbell …. his character was just such a prick with a high level of intelligence. Then he decided to save his mom from the problems of what was going on in the small town she grew up in. From there, it turned into a decent book. After all when your mother “grounds” you (even if you are close to 30 LOL) … guess you should follow through making up for the huge mistake that you caused in her plans!

Ms. Davidson created a tale of a world were you have one highly intelligent twin & one that seems normal (he wasn’t really involved in the story but a few times). The mother has major home town pride, even though they don’t all care for her. Add in Natalie Lane, a stubborn pony plus the “nuke option” … and you find yourself actually enjoying the tale.

I sincerely hope that Ms. Davidson write more about these extra characters, because they helped complete the story.
