Review of SAVAGE HUNGER



SAVAGE HUNGER may be purchased here.

SAVAGE HUNGER
Terry Spear

Kathleen McKnight is working undercover with her army unit, when she is captured by a vicious drug lord.   Luckily, Connor Anderson, a jaguar shifter, hears her and comes to her rescue, saving her life.  Connor disappears, when more army personnel arrive, and Kathleen is left to wonder what happened to him.  After a year, Kathleen goes back to the jungle, where she was held captive, only to have Connor and his sister, Mia, save her.

SAVAGE HUNGER is an enjoyable shifter romance with great characters and an exciting storyline.  Kathleen has been through a great trauma and is struggling to come to terms with her fears.  I liked the fact that Kathleen is strong and intelligent and able to take care of herself in most situations.  Connor and Mia are the only jaguar shifters, that they know of.  Because of this fact, Connor and Maya only have each other and are lonely and craving mates.  Connor doesn't wish to turn a human and sentence her to a lonely existence of hiding their true nature.  Connor is everything, that is expected in a hero, and is willing to sacrifice for those he loves.  Luckily, Maya is very impulsive and takes the decision out of his hands.  While Maya's  intentions are good, her actions could have been very detrimental for Kathleen.  The only minor quibble, that I have with this book, is the lack of consequences Kathleen faces as a result of her actions.

All in all, SAVAGE HUNGER is a good read, and I look forward to reading Maya's book.

NOTE:  I received this book in exchange for an impartial review.

Review of A LADY AND HER MAGIC


A LADY AND HER MAGIC may be purchased here.

A LADY AND HER MAGIC
Tammy Falkner

Ashley Trimble, the Duke of Robinsworth, is almost a pariah in society.  It is rumored that Ashley murdered his wife, after she died under suspicious circumstances, leaving their daughter motherless. 
Sophia Thorne has been sent by the Fae to help Ashley's daughter,Anne, but she hopes to help Ashley, too.

It is seldom, that this reader comes across a book, which puts a smile on my face in just a few paragraphs, but A LADY AND HER MAGIC is such a book.  It is an even rarer occurrence, when the smile lasts the entire book, but this book provided me with this lucky happenstance.  Part regency romance and part paranormal, my two favorite genres, A LADY AND HER MAGIC is filled with humorous scenes and quirky characters.  Ashley blames himself for his wife's death and has become something of a recluse, there is a real sadness about him.  Anne has learned to act out and has become a terror, who goes through governesses almost  weekly.  Sophia, who is lovely and vibrant, soon has Anne and Ashley charmed.  The secondary characters make a great addition to the story and add to the amusement in the book.  Even though, there are plenty of humorous scenes, there are, also some serious and emotional scenes. 

A LADY AND HER MAGIC is a charming romance, which just hits the spot for this reader.
