- Mud and Gold (Promises to Keep: Book 2)

I just finished the three follow ups on Sentence of Marriage, the live of Amy and Lizzie gripping. I have cried and laughed with each character and loved Frank and Dave.
Sarah is impressive a woman who knew what she wants and goes for it, she is a wonderful daughter to Amy. Beth in her own right is a strong woman understanding David and helps him to cope with the struggles within. her patience and love for him endearing and truthful.
Hope this is not where the stories ends.

The story is original and well written, I loved the two main characters Tizzy and Grant, the two supporting characters Becky and Peter was good bringing them together. Never judge a book by its cover is the main theme and was brilliantly set in the story.

- Eye of the Beholder
on March 16, 2012
This was a good book to read, lying in bed on a rainy day. loved the video trail, this is unique.
Loved Dave, what a caring and loving man. She was fortunate he was there at the station when she arrived.
The sexual was part of the intimacy and I liked it.
Just shows you, you don't have to be drop dead gorgeous to be intimate with your husband, he loves you for who you are.
In my book that is what matter most.

- Intentions of the Earl (Regency Historical Romance)
on March 18, 2012
I enjoyed the intriguing plot, both Brooke and Andrew was strong characters. At the end it all worked out.
The younger sister was a bit of a pain, Madison started out poorly but at the end showed some backbone.
Hopefully Gateway would improve as a person in the follow up. However because of him, Brooke and Andrew met which could count for something.
The intimate part was just enough to stimulate the imagination. Making it a good read over all.
- Enemies and Playmates
on March 23, 2012
I simply could not switch off the laptop, the story was captivating till the last page.
The characters was strong, each in its own right. The serious topic of domestic violence was highlighted with sensitivity and great care.
The name of the book said it all.
Thanks for a great read
- Romance in Vegas - Showgirl!

- A Wicked Proposition
on April 09, 2012
Beautifully written, interesting plot. Couldn't stop reading. Enjoyed the main characters tremendously.
My favorite is beyond a doubt Nicholas, than Catherine. For a scoundrel he had the heart and the compassion to protect her no matter the cost. I admired him for his steadfastness to conquer her heart.
I can not wait to read the follow up.
The mix of Elise, Teagin and Caspice will defnitly make a good story.
Really hope the Lilly character gets what she deserves.
And that Gabriel find love at the end, he was also an victim but really it is time to move on and not allow petty feelings to hinder him to find the love he wants.
- A Soldier Reborn
on July 25, 2012
I have read the book in two days. Captivating and spell bound from start to finish. The knowledge of military and police by the author is well executed in the plot. Making it believable to me. The characters all played a part making it an enjoyable read.
Would love to know what happens next to William Connolly and Dean McKnight.
Would recommend it to people who love military action and suspense to the end.
Thanks for sharing your story

I was splendidly surprised with this book. Never one that reads Young adult books but I must admit this one got my attention from Chapter three. At first I could not figure out where the author was heading but then things started to happen. The vivid dreams, unfamiliar touch of ghosts leaving Baylie startled. The much older people colored the story with their knowledge. Surprised at all the twists and turns in the plot and could not stop till the very end. The story had a nice build up to it that keeps you interested to the end.
The growing relationship between Baylie and Tyler was pleasant to read. The Chastity ring and the promise to with hold until their wedding day a wonderful touch where young people of today think it is a curse to remain a virgin. The respect they showed to the parents and older people refreshing. The reasons I never read YA.
I even liked the undying romance between Jonathon and Abbi united once again after a very long separation. Which led to the Exoneration of Thomas and a "curse" lifted from the Caldwell family.
- Shadows of Pain
on Dec. 10, 2012
Book 3 in the Shadows Series, a Christian Suspense Romance by Ashley Dawn.
In this suspense filled story we met with a whole cast of characters tossed together as a family. Each qualified law enforcement officers and you see how three groups, The FBI, the CSI and the LAPD work together to catch the stalker that shadow their every move.
Not even babies was immune to this bad guy's threats but at the end justice was served.
We met up with the old group in the previous books of the Series as the story continues. I would recommend to first buy the first two before you read Book 3 since it would fill in the blanks more easily.
Since I have not done this I was left with many unknowns in the story and the author left many gaps for me to really enjoy this read. I love suspense stories, the thrill and unexpected turns and twists you find in a story to keep you paging through the pages, questioning and anticipating who the perp could be. The end result when you find that you were wrong in guessing and the build up to the whole plot.
Although the build up in this book was good there were to many distractions within the characters mind frames. Too many other things that occupied it and it lessen the suspense some what. Loosing its momentum.
The salvation message came clear in the story when two characters is faced with mortality and God's place in their lives. But once again the theme did not had enough build up to see the progressive growth in the character's faith as you would have when you were facing a stalker who was out there trying to kill your loved ones.
There were just to many warnings from the perp to make the plot really believable and tensed filled.
The romance were good, the two characters David and Kami really coming together as a couple in this dire situation. They were caring and protective of each other, doing the little extras that makes a relationship work.
Over all a good read but make sure you read the first two books in the Shadows Series.
- Perfect Betrayal
on March 08, 2013
Applause to the author Jade Kerrion for the Science Fiction Series, Double Helix. Perfect Betrayal continued where Perfection Unleashed end. Her knowledge and thorough research giving us another excellent read.
Intense is maybe the best word to describe the second book. The scientific intensity of DNA manipulation and the effects on people and the environment skillfully penned down in this highly entertaining book that force you to keep pace in the meticulous build up of the well executed plot.
Mixed in all the intrigues of human emotions, the ebbs and flows of growing relationships mixed with the Alpha Empath's gift you get a very interesting story that draws you in and captures the imagination. Making you part of the characters as realistic beings.
Again we are introduced to the same group in Perfection Unleashed. But this time we get a clear image of Danyael Sabre. The spotlight more on him as a person and not only as a template for the in-human Galahad.
My heart went out for this young doctor struggling to do the right thing but every time thwarted and his plans taking twists and turns that lead up to his capture and ultimate betrayal of friends and the council members he thought would protect him. Walking with unbearable pain as he tried to outrun the schemers who only wants his gifts as exploits to their own power surge and greed.
We also learn more about Zara and her conflicting emotions. Falling in love with the empath but not willing too submit too the feelings and emotions it caused in her life. Leaving her with regrets and a sour taste for perfection at the end.
Lucien who turned on his best friend, the Northern Star in Danyael's life. Of course not by his own will but manipulated by the Mutant Assault Group. Causing havoc in Danyael's life leaving him bereft and alone.
Galahad the in-human who turns on Danyael in his own attempts to gain recognition as a human from the Government.
The Psychic ghosts were brought in but at the end Danyael chose his path above the freedom they offered. The only good thing that came out of that meeting was the introduction to Jacob Johnson.
There is just too much to say about this book in a review. It is best to get the Series and read it for yourself. Starting with the first book to get a understanding of the story.
Discovering a unique world off DNA manipulation, cloning and the effects it can have on us. Relationships is tested and questions asked with no real answers since human emotions plays such a huge roll in the decisions we make.
At the end we live by the choices we make and not what others make for us. That sets our future in motion and is beautifully illustrated in this book.
A book I can highly recommend to every Sci-Fi reader. Suspense filled to the very end.
Well done Jade Kerrion.
- Perfect Weapon
on March 10, 2013
Once again applause is in order for another brilliant delivery. Compelling too the very end this emotional Sci-Fi book will capture your imagination and thoughts too the end. Drawn into the life of Danyael Sabre as more truths are discovered. Struggling with the emotional betrayal of friends after his fourteen month of confinement under the most horrific torture any man could endure.
After a daring break out and plopped into the arms of his enemies he had no idea who was friend or foe. Who he can trust in the ever present world filled of hate and betrayal was the ever growing question. Emotions escalating all around him and new friendships are formed. Restricted in a military base he came to terms with his fate and helped the program off Super Soldiers.
With a mere soft word and touch he controlled fifty deadly soldiers with the mind set of curious toddlers but ready to kill at a mere nod off the head.
Meeting another woman Major Amanda Chandler who not only was his friend but lover. She supported him through all his emotional turmoil helping to grasp at normality. While still fighting immense pain from wounds inflicted by Lucien in Book 2, with no help from his friends.
Miriya was the only one still tapped in his thoughts that reach out to him through the whole ADX ordeal. Coming to grips with her own turmoil of addiction and self loathing, knowing her part in the deceit.
Zara really made a turn for the better but then a child would do that to a person. It does not matter how hard she tries to be. Her love causing her to help Danyael in every possible way.
Galahad struggling with the issue of perfection. Jealous because of people turning to Danyael in his obvious unperfection, women he falls in love with, leaving him. On a undetected killing spree, only noticeable by Xin.
All the characters throughout the books developed into their own skins. Becoming realistic in the fight for justice and freedom.
Except maybe Lucien. On the one hand you could feel sorry for him, his mind altered so that he would cut away from Danyael but on the other hand I was really annoyed with him. The history they shared was more than just friendship. They became brothers in the true meaning of the word, so with that said he could surpass the emotional blockage and stretched out a hand of compassion. But he never once did. He became cold, heartless and distant and I really hope that we will see a restoration of this friendship in book 4.
I can not wait to read the next book.
I loved the way the book ended and would really hope to see the results of the ending continue in book 4.
A great read with many twists and turns leaving you wanting at every turn of the page.
Entertaining and thoughtful, well written and fast paced, well developed and gripping. All good components of a great book and series.
