Cry Wolf

Andrea Lockhart's job as a reporter for cheesy tabloid The Naked Truth isn't exactly where she thought her journalism career would end up. She's determined to make the best of it, but when her editor sends her to Woodbine, South Carolina, to investigate a werewolf sighting, Andrea decides the ridiculous assignment will be her last. Until she meets Sean Hunter.
The last time she saw Sean, he had just beat her out for the position of editor of their college newspaper, and told her she'd never make it as a reporter. Given his grand ambitions, she's shocked to find him editing the Woodbine Weekly. Once they start competing for leads on the werewolf, Andrea becomes determined to break the story first-she can't let Sean beat her again.
As they each get closer to finding the source of the rumors, the only thing more surprising than the truth are the feelings Sean is able to stir in her, feelings she thought she had left behind...

Romance and a werewolf seems to be a theme lately, but I have to say for a debut book this author hit the nail on the head!
No cheesy stuff here. We actually have a story that although starts a bit slow keeps your interests. I even at times wished I could smack Andrea upside the head....urgh! As if she's the only one in the world who can change....really?
Sean is by far my favorite, sweet, honorable and lovable. Everyone grows up sometime.
I loved how the author really got the small town belief system....some do...some don't.....and some it's just hmmmmm.
The question remains.....Will we ever know?????

I will definitely be watching to see what else Angela Campbell brings us next.

Pick up your copy...when else????
On Halloween!!!!!

Curse of the Gargoyle (Cursed MacKinnons, Book one)

This story isn't  a new book, it's actually from, I'm a bit behind on finding out about this GREAT author!
I actually only found it because it is being offered this month as a FREE download. 
(Plus it had a hot highlander...LOL)

Gavin has been entombed in stone for hundreds of years, waiting for the right person to break the curse that put him there. After the voice of an unknown woman speaks the special words to free him, he finds himself in a time that is no longer his own. Though this woman pleasures him in every imaginable way, he's still racked with anguish for all he's lost. Duty, honor and his deep-seated need for revenge consume him. Ericka thought flying to Scotland was the toughest feat of her life. That was until she met a ghost and freed a seventeenth-century Scottish hunk from stone. Ghosts aren't real and curses don't exist. Hot sex with Gavin fuels her imagination, but he can't possibly her soul mate, or can he..... The evil behind the curse lingers. Gavin is stone by day, man by night. Together they fight, determined to overcome the source behind the curse. But if they fail, their love could be lost for eternity.

As you can tell from the book blurb....this story has everything going for a great spooky romance....Ghosts, curses, a Seventeenth-century Scottish HUNK!
I mean really what more could you really ask for?
Aside from really stellar written chapters that flow so well that you don't want to put it down until you're finished?
Each chapter you fall more and more in love with the characters as you slowly learn about the curse and what all it entails.
I can hardly wait to see if the next six brothers' books are as brilliant as this one is.

Falke's Captive

A graduate student working in animal genetics, Beth Coldwell is in town to track and tag big cats in the wild. Her prospects for the summer only improve when she meets Kelan and Reidar Falke and decides the sexy brothers are the right pair to fulfill her other, less than scientific, desires...
But her research is a threat to the Falke family secret. When Kelan, in cougar form, is captured, that secret comes closer than ever to being revealed. He escapes, but not before Beth draws a blood sample, and analysis shows this is no ordinary mountain lion.
Kelan and Reidar cannot deny the powerful attraction they feel toward Beth. She might just be their destined mate. But if they reveal themselves to her, will she embrace who they are or see them as just another science experiment?

This is actually the second book in the series and I was so glad that the book stood on it's own. I wasn't at a lost having not read the first book. It was Great!!!!
The story flowed great from page to page.....made me want my own set of brothers after I was done reading it!

The story made me laugh...the way Kelan got caught...typical male hot head!
Beth having a Dr. Doolittle moment....LOL
Ahhhh and the sex scenes....I think the shower even though it wasn't the three of them, it still is my favorite.
Then you have their dads they have to tell about the mess they're in...not to mention telling their older brothers they've found "The One".
Oh did I mention the kidnapping?
Yep!.......Truly a story that keeps you reading and wanting more....
