  • Enchanted on Oct. 30, 2011

    Epic story about a seventeen year old girl named Mandy who goes to stay with her grandmother and finds herself caught up in a centuries old mystery and learning that things are not always what they appear to be. I loved this story it was very exciting and caught and held my attention from the beginning. It had some great imagery. Mandy was a great character and I had fun finding friends and figuring out the mysteries from her past with her. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a good YA fantasy novel.
  • Dreams Both Real and Strange on Dec. 03, 2011

    This collection of short stories is very entertaining and full of magic, mystery, and horror. They were very original and the characters are highly entertaining. The stories were easy to follow and didn’t end too early. I highly recommend this book to lovers of fantasy or paranormal stories.
  • Dark and Light: A Small Collection of Poetry on Dec. 03, 2011

    These poems are beautiful, bright, and dark. They brought out a lot of emotions and the imagery was very beautiful. You could really feel the emotions and energy within these poems. I highly recommend these too lovers of poetry.
  • Thoughtless on April 16, 2012

    An engaging read that held my interest from the very first page. This was a great and not overly stereotypical story about a teenager with some unusual powers. The heroine was strong and handled herself well instead of just freaking out like so many do in stories like this. I really enjoyed getting to know all of these characters and figuring out the mystery of who the killer was right along with Bridget. The story was exciting and had enough twists and turns to keep me on my toes. I also liked exploring the idea of being able to hear people’s thoughts and some of the consequences that come with that. It was really interesting because this is a power that I think many of us wish we had at some point in our lives. This is a great read that will keep you entertained for hours. I highly recommend you try out Jacqueline Gardner’s “Thoughtless”.
  • Pursued: Brides of the Kindred book 6 on July 02, 2012

    The long awaited Pursued has finally been published and the wait was totally worth it! Merrick the scarred warrior and best friend of Sylvan found a young woman named Elise who had been tortured by the scourge frozen in a stasis chamber. He saved her life by bringing her back to the mother ship and since then the two have become very close, but things go sour when they find out Elise has a fiancé. Merrick is determined to forget her, but that soon becomes impossible when they find out that they somehow formed a very dangerous soul bond that requires Elise to be at his side constantly. Now in order to save them both they must brave the dangerous jungle of Rageron and find the pain vine. Will they find the plant before it’s too late or will they finally be able to deal with the past to discover a love worth fighting for? This story was so full of emotion that you better be ready for a rollercoaster ride that will have you wishing for a Merrick of your own. Both of these characters have had pasts that haunt them to this day. There was a lot of character growth in this story and I couldn’t help but feel for these characters they went through a lot and still persevered and became better people for it. Elise is a passionate young woman who never had the chance to really let herself go. She is also fiercely protective of those unable to protect themselves such as children and animals. Elsie is also unfailing kind and yet a bit stubborn. She is a great influence on Merrick and brings out the best in him. Merrick is the tough as nails warrior who is used to being alone. He is noble and kind in his own way I couldn’t help falling in love with him. The way he protects his loved ones and always tries to do the right thing is amazing and I cannot believe that he actually believes that the goddess wouldn’t care about him. He is good for Elise and truly cares for her I loved this pairing more than any other in the series simply because they are so amazing together. Don’t miss the amazing new edition to the Kindred series!
  • The Soul's Mark: FOUND (The Soul's Mark, #1) on Aug. 13, 2012

    Amelia Caldwell just wants a fresh start and hopes that by moving to Willowberg she will get just that. Unfortunately things only get worse when she finds out that her birthmark is more than it seems. Amelia finds out that she has been marked by a vampire’s soul and is his soulmate. Her vampire soulmate is Mitchell Lang. He has been searching for Amelia for almost a century and fears that he will soon lose her to another man. In a desperate attempt to keep her he takes away her free will and intensifies their bond. This turns her once budding love into hate. Amelia fights the bond tooth and nail, not wanting to belong to anyone. While she is fighting for a way to escape she unlocks the painful memories of her past and finds a powerful secret. Before she can explore this any further she is caught in the middle of deadly game of revenge. She’ll realize fast that you cannot run from your destiny. I really haven’t been reading many vampire stories lately, but this one caught my eye and I was glad it did. This story was fast paced and engaging. It was so hard to put down and I actually pulled a couple all nighters to finish it. I loved the suspense and mystery to this story and it really kept me guessing. The action was exciting and had me on the edge of my seat. The characters were really interesting and made me want to find out more about them. Amelia was a tough and spirited girl who just wanted to be normal. I could really relate to her and had fun getting to know more about her personality and her past. Mitchell was interesting and very deep. He had his faults, but I liked that he wasn’t just flat and too perfect like some characters. He had a good heart, but was a bit too impulsive at times. This is an exciting new story that vampire/paranormal romance lovers won’t want to miss!
