 4 of 5 stars false  
The old saying goes, “The ends justify the means”...
For vampire Miranda Dandridge, using her supernatural abilities to rescue children from impossible circumstances is her means to be a part of the human world that she loves so much, despite the atrocities of WWII.
For doctor Ben Gongliewski, saving his fellow Jews from the horrific death camps is an end for which he risks his own life every day, hiding his Jewish heritage while feigning loyalty the SS.
Neither Miranda nor Ben expects to find love in World War II Europe, but that is exactly what happens as they work for the Resistance. When the war draws to a close, it seems like the vampire and the doctor are free to start a future together. Yet the two forget just how far the Nazis will go to further their own evil ends.
Desperate times make for ruthless men as loves and lives are threatened, but, Miranda and Ben know that their world cannot go to hell, not by any means


****This book was part of a blog tour, I received a copy for my honest review***
This book is set during WWII Miranda and her small group of friends have been helping to rescue children, on one of the nights Ben and Mirandas paths cross and it changes everything for the two of them. This book is wonderfully written, you can tell the author put a lot of time and research into every aspect of it. This book is not the your average paranormal romance book, the issues it deals with are real and relevant. The question of what is evil, something you are born as or is it something that you become? Mankind in this book show that true evil is something you become, while the paranormal creatures in this book are not all light and fluffy, they are not evil. The way this book was written just blows my mind, the author has the characters jumping of the pages and the utter helplessness of some of the situations had me in tears. Again I have to mention the amount of research that went into this book, it takes real life events and bends them just the tiniest bit by adding some supernatural elements and making them seem real. While I am not normally into WWII books, I really enjoyed this one. Release is a great book, anybody looking for a book with substance and depth should read this one.

Chasing Mrs Right 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Chasing Mrs. Right (Come Undone, #2)
4 of 5 stars false
It was only supposed to last one night...
Ian had no idea the sexy woman he took to his bed was his little sister's best friend--or that she'd refuse to give him more than one night.
Good thing this soldier likes a challenge...


****I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review****
Holy Heck, this was a sizzling steamy book and it starts you off with a bang!
Ian is just back from his final tour of Afghanistan. A return soldier, he only wants to be alone to deal with his PTS, but he is whirled straight from the Airport to a welcome home party a his sisters fiance's club.He does not want to be there and in the middle of his frantic escape, he bangs straight into Roxanne.
Roxanne is on her way to a welcome home party for the brother of her best friend, when she is knocked on her ass by a man who looks strangely close to a panic attack. He also seems to be one of the most attractive men she has ever met.
They have immediate chemistry and neither know who the other is when they go home together.
Roxanne makes it clear to Ian that she is not interested in relationships at all, but he is not going to let go of the one thing that has calmed his war damaged soul.
The chase that ensues is a good one. I loved that it was the man chasing the woman, convincing her of the joys that a relationship could bring. Roxanne's issues with relationships were fair ones and I could definitely understand her skittishness around the big "L" word.
Roxanne as a character was a funny one, I loved her witty retorts.
Ian,of course, was adorable, the perfect man and I love reading about a perfect man :)I loved especially how he found his calm within the presence of Roxanne,it made their romance all the more sweet.
This book flowed really well, in fact it was such a delight that I read it in one day.
I have read the book one in this series by Katee Robert, Wrong bed Right Guy, and I have to say that this one left it for dust. The characters were just perfect, very likable.The relationship didn't feel forced at all, I felt the connection and was really looking forward to the happily ever after. The steam factor was there, it started right from the beginning and kept me excited right til the end. I would suggest giving this one ago, it had everything in it that I have come to expect from a really great erotic romance.

When a woman is the magnet for the wrong man, it takes a bad boy to break old habits. Carolina Rodriguez is a large-animal veterinarian on a mission to escape South Florida. Willing to do just about anything, she accepts a job in Annona, Texas over the Internet from a family connection. At her cousin’s wedding, she runs into—literally—a handsome Texas in the parking lot. Matt McLemore is more than gorgeous, he’s Carolina’s new boss, and needs her help to determine why his cattle keep dying. Matt proposes to introduce Carolina to his family as his girlfriend, giving her the opportunity to work and stay at his ranch without arousing his family’s suspicion. Only when she learns she’s the last chance to help save his family’s cattle reputation (given his father’s refusal to listen to reason and modern genetic testing) does she agree to act the part of his girlfriend. Matt’s instantaneous attraction to Carolina is an excruciating temptation but a roll in the hay may prove too volatile to handle. He attempts to keep a hands-off relationship until she arrives on his ranch and she is too hot to resist. Carolina refuses to admit Matt’s raw sensuality is more than overpowering or that she’s the least bit tempted by a smooth talking bad boy. By the time the lab reports comes back, they’ve explored every inch of each other. All of a sudden, this fiery affair is more than just a fling. When a past flame threatens to overwhelm their newfound romance, Matt must find a way to stake his claim to Carolina’s heart before it’s too late.
