From Goodreads: Amaliya wakes under the forest floor, disoriented, famished and confused. She digs out of the shallow grave and realizes she is hungry in a new, horrific, unimaginable way. Sating her great hunger, she discovers that she is now a vampire, the bloodthirsty creature of legend. She has no choice but to flee from her old life and travels across Texas hoping to escape her creator. Bought for MyselfOverall Rating 4.25Character Rating 4.50Story Rating 4.00Buy Your Own Copy Amazon Barnes & NobleNOTE: I was having a discussion the other day that I was getting kind of tired of Vampires. This book though kind of built up my love for them again. I think it was because the Vampires acted like Vampires: Killed, Drank, and had to avoid the sun. YEAH! Book Note:  The blurb only gives a very small description about what this book has to offer.  It is not only Amaliya’s journey once being turned but Cian’s journey to being the man/vampire he should.  It was a different kind of journey for all the side characters to resolve their Point of Views with reality.  Mostly though this is just a fantastic piece of storytelling! What I Loved: Normally I […]

From Goodreads: In 1904 Texas Ranger Luke Palmer arrives in Brenham, Texas, with one goal—to capture the gang of outlaws led by Frank Comer. Undercover as a telephone repairman, he uses his days on the range to search, not realizing there’s another pair of eyes watching him. Georgie Gail, switchboard operator and birder, heads out on a birding expedition, but instead of sighting a painted bunting, her opera glasses capture her telephone man, armed and far away from telephone lines. Palmer is forced to take this alluring troublemaker into his confidence and unwittingly puts her in harm’s way. The closer he comes to the gang, the further she works her way into his heart—and into trouble. Soon it’s more than just love that’s on the line.

From Goodreads: The papers have called me a monster. You’ve either concluded that I am a braggart as well as a sadist or that I have a deep and driving need to be caught and punished.     In the sweltering heat of an Atlanta summer, a killer is pushing the city to its breaking point, preying on the unsuspecting, writing taunting letters to the media, promising more death. Desperate to stop the Wishbone Killer before another victim meets a shattering end, A.P.D. lieutenant Aaron Rauser turns to the one person he knows can penetrate a deranged mind: ex–FBI profiler Keye Street. And you must certainly be wondering if I am, in fact, the stranger you seek. Keye was a rising young star at the Bureau until addiction derailed her career and her life. Now sober and fighting to stay so, Keye picks up jobs where she can get them: catching adulterers, serving subpoenas, chasing down bailjumpers, and dodging the occasional bullet. With multiple victims, little to go on, and an entire police force looking for direction, the last thing Keye wants is to be pulled into the firestorm of Atlanta’s worst nightmare. Shall I convince you? And then it suddenly […]
