Smashwords book reviews by Linda Helme
- Celtic Evil: A Fitzgerald Brother Novel: Roarke
on Feb. 16, 2012
Loved this book, definitely one of those "I'll just read one more chapter....." books! Great storyline & characters, I sometimes find books about magical powers can get a bit silly at times, this was definitely not like that - Harry Potter has nothing one these guys!!!
- Celtic Evil A Fitzgerald Brothers Novel: Ian
on Feb. 18, 2012
Loved this, read it straight after the first book, Roarke, now eagerly awaiting the third part!
- Celtic Evil The Fitzgerald Brothers A Celtic Christmas
on Feb. 18, 2012
Loved the interaction and camaraderie between the brothers, read this as a follow up to the first two books in the series.
- The Hunt
on March 17, 2012
Loved this second part of the V V Inn series, so many twists and turns, just when you thought you knew where the story was going something unexpected would happen. Really liked the way the story was told from the viewpoint of several main characters giving the reader that extra insight into all the members of the seethe. Can't wait for the third book but also like the tidbits from Dria's long past - maybe a prequel?
- Ardeur, Book One, Abbey of Angels
on April 29, 2012
Loved this book; plenty of action, suspense, paranormal beings
with a love story added to the mix, looking forward to the sequel!
- Angel of Death: Book One of The Chosen Chronicles
on May 16, 2012
Brilliant tale with so many twists, just when I thought I knew where the story was going I was completely wrong-footed, even to the very last words - although the ending definitely made me want to read more of the chronicles.

Brilliant short read. I downloaded this after reading Gray Justice & Gray Resurrection (both brilliant!)
- Lord of Shadows
on July 05, 2012
Great story where the vampire is in love with the vampire hunter's daughter - will love win the day? Very sexy read!
- BITES (The First Ten Chapters From Dark Heirloom)
on July 18, 2012
Thank you so much for this taster,I agree that ten chapters isn't enough! Really makes me want to find out more about Ema and how she discovers and develops her new found powers, as well as who or what is the Cat! Brilliant read!
- Alone (Book 1 in the Serenity Series)
on Sep. 24, 2012
Really good story of a woman escaping the trauma of an abusive marriage, with the help a handsome vampire. Their relationship is then hampered by a jealous, powerful rival - will there be a happy ending? Read it to find out!
- Buried (Book 2 in the 'Serenity' Series)
on Sep. 24, 2012
Fantastic follow up to Alone. Absolutely gripping - the tension had me practically holding my breath at times as well as gasping at the horrific killings. Brilliant cliffhanger ending had me immediately turning to Book 3 in the series Captured.
- Being Mrs. Dracula
on Nov. 03, 2012
I followed the advice of a review suggesting that the book would be better appreciated if Bram Stoker's Dracula was read first. So glad I did so because, although the story definitely stand on it's own, I felt that having read Dracula first added that extra dimension to a fantastic story. I felt that the stories of the two books were tied together very clevery.
Although the story was told through the diaries of the Brides I also felt that we got a better insight into the character of Dracula himself, both his good and bad traits. The book is really well written and the stories of the Brides very sensitively told, I found the childbirth scene particularly moving. I also loved the way Fleur came along totally changing the dynamics of the group.
All in all a fantastic book, thoroughly enjoyed it!

This was one of the first books I downloaded when I got my Kindle 15 months ago, in fact I downloaded the whole series, cannot believe I've only just got round to reading it! Brilliant read, well paced with very believable characters, on to the next book already!
- Betrayed: Days of the Rogue
on March 17, 2013
Just read this following on from Bonded as one of the suggested reading orders, loved both books, can't wait to read the next book. Loving the series!
- The Mating (Law of the Lycans)
on March 23, 2013
Third book in this series read & enjoyed, now onto the fourth!
- The Keeping
on April 04, 2013
The fourth book in this series that I've read & I was not disappointed. The only downside is that I'm now on the last book :(
- The Finding
on April 11, 2013
Last of the five books in this fab series, really hope the next story gets written, would love to hear more about Sam.
- The Beckoning of Beautiful Things
on May 18, 2013
Colourful is definitely the word I would use to describe this very imaginative tale. Colourful Marissa the artist developing her new found abilities, and very colourful characters, especially Crazy Betty & Jason, the latter I found I couldn't help liking despite how annoying he was! Fantastic ending, just the right amount of tying up loose ends while still leaving room for a sequel. I could well see this book as a film with such larger than life characters.
