Gideon Waverley, heir to the Duke of Townsend, had everything a young man could need, a promising future, a title, charming good looks, great friends, and a family who adored him. Until his body turned him into a monster. He had no choice but to separate himself from the world, to hide his monstrous self from society, to cast away his future. But the brilliant and beautiful Eve Cornwell refused to believe he could not be saved, even as she refused to guard her heart.
The author left nothing to imagination and added more drama then necessary. Rosalyn struggled to make the obvious interesting. Save your money.

In his position as Tracker for the SnowDancer pack, Drew Kincaid must rein in rogue Changelings who've lost control of their animal halves - even if it means killing those who've gone too far. But nothing in his life has prepared him for the battle he must now wage - to win the heart of a woman who makes his body ignite... and who threatens to enslave his wolf.
This is a great series. The plot I keeps one guessing at the outcome.
Caitriona Macleod gave up her career as an investigative reporter for the role of perfect wife. But after her husband is found dead in his mistress's bed, a devastated Cait leaves Chicago for the birthplace she hasn't seen since she was a child. She's hoping to heal and reconnect with her gran. The last thing she expects to find in Gandiegow is the Sexiest Man Alive. Graham Buchanan is a movie star with many secrets. A Gandiegow native, he frequently hides out in his hometown between films.
The narrator saved the day. otherwise a boring story. The characters seemed flat. For me this was a missed opportunity to tell an interesting story.

Blakesley Thorne moved to San Diego to escape a horrendous history in Los Angeles; a divorce, betrayal, and murder were only part of it. A distant cousin of marshal Wyatt Earp, Blakesley intends to start a new life with her three very young daughters in the old homestead that has been in her family for generations. The home, one of the very first great homesteads to be built in early California, is full of legends of cursed gold and evil tidings.
it was fast pace with realistic heros. the narrator was okay but not a perfect mitch for the characters.
As a child, Hester Wyatt escaped slavery, but now the dark-skinned beauty is a member of Michigan's Underground Railroad, offering other runaways a chance at the freedom she has learned to love. When one of her fellow conductors brings her an injured man to hide, Hester doesn't hesitate...even after she is told about the price on his head. The man in question is known as the "Black Daniel," a vital member of the North's Underground Railroad network.
Ms. Jenkins has an artful way of t spinning historical African American tales. The heros are believable. empathic characters of the time period.
Believing only death will prevent him from returning to England, Sir Lucien de Gautier answers his king's call to arms. When he is captured and his family refuses the ransom demand, he finds himself bound to the oars of a galley. Enraged and embittered, he has no hope of escape - until a rich merchant's wife offers him freedom.
I was very disappointed in the failure of the author to create characters with substance. The worst book selection I have made in a long time.

Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past-one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life.
I have read all of the books in this series but feel there isn't enough closure for the series to end
For example, when will Ming get what he deserves?
It is A.D. 1486. Fresh from his treacherous turning of the tides against Richard III in the Battle of Bosworth, Sir Gaston de Russe's reputation is dark and dirty. Those loyal to Richard hate him and those loyal to Henry Tudor fear him. He is, after all, The Dark One. In order to gain a strong foothold in Yorkshire, Henry sends Gaston to one of the largest fortresses in the north, a massive bastion called Mt. Holyoak Castle.
I love the characters in this story because they had the courage to live life boldly.
"Dark Hero" by Hannah Howell. Unlike most of his clan, Berawald MacNachton chooses to live in comfortable seclusion, far from the enemies who hunt his kind - until Evanna Massey and her young brother intrude upon his solitude…"Bride of the Beast" by Adrienne Basso. When Haydn of Gwynedd first met Bethan of Lampeter, she was a brave and fearless young girl, risking her life to save his..."Kiss of the Vampire" by Eve Silver. Devoted to her work at King's College Hospital, Sarah Lowell is shocked to discover that someone - or something - is killing the weakest patients, draining them of their blood.
All three stories had a related theme. Aside from the usual vampire rituals these stories. contain, morality, concern for the greater good as it relates to community.
1231 A.D. After a nasty skirmish along the England/Scotland border at Bog Wood, a badly wounded knight has crawled off to die. As women from the Clan Scott fan out across the battlefield to collect the spoils of war, one woman breaks off from the pack. She is sickened by the tradition of stealing valuables off the dead and runs off to hide. In her hiding place, however, lingers the badly wounded knight. The young woman is frightened at first but her natural instinct to lend aid takes over. She tends the knight and saves his life.
The only question I have us why didn't Katheyn write a modern day sequel? The epilog with the naval seal seems to be going in that direction but the it just ends with no explanation.
