Lusting the Enemy by Mel Teshco

Reviewed by Helen

I haven’t read a paranormal story for a long time and when I read the blurb of this book on MS Teshco’s newsletter I really thought I should read it, then a friend read it and reviewed it and that was it I bought it and have read it and I loved it, wow what a great story.

Akeshia is a shifter from the silver panther tribe and a princess and she is determined to do what she can to save her race from extinction. She makes her way to the humans and offers herself as a mistress to the King, but what happens when he chooses her is awesome, sensual and so very moving. Akeshia never thinks that she will feel the emotions she does as she falls for King Judas.

Judas is a strong and caring leader and there is a lot more to him than most people see and on first sighting of Akeshia he knows that she is the one that he needs and wants he feels her so strongly, and he has already set in motion some things that will make Akeshia smile and very happy that is if he can convince her of his feelings.

Of course a romance of deep love never runs smoothly and with some people that would want to harm Akeshia and take away the thrown from Judas, they have a fight on their hands. I loved Judas what a gorgeous hero he is and Akeshia perfect for him in every way. This story had me turning the pages as they become one in a world that still has a few problems to overcome (more books) but together they will grow and I do look forward to more in this series. Thank you MS Teshco for a truly fabulous story that will stay with me for a long time to come.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

The Hauntings of Livingstone Hall

The Hauntings of Livingstone Hall

Ebony McKenna, Louise Reynolds, Alison Stuart, Denise Ogilvie, Eliza Renton, Carol Challis, Sarah J Wolfe

The Hauntings of Livingstone Hall by Ebony McKenna

Reviewed by Helen

This is a fun quick read with some fabulous ghosts to get to know seven stories in this anthology and I enjoyed every one of them there are smiles along the way as we get to know the ghosts that live together in the ancient house supposedly built on an old Roman ruin it has towers and parapets a dungeon and an attic were the ghost love to hang out. It is now a country hotel and spa and attracts a lot of curious visitors.

Each story flows onto the next one and they are well written with different characters and ghosts starring in each one, over the years there have been paranormal investigations trying to find proof but these ghosts are very clever. Of course there are people who can see them feel them and hear them but there is never any evidence that Livingstone Hall is haunted, why not see for yourself and read this one I do highly recommend these stories.

All of the authors are members of a writing group from Melbourne and can I say well done Ladies I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I do hope to see another one I am quite fond of some of these ghosts.

4/5 stars for a great story

Dead Men Seal the Deal by Jacqui Jacoby

Reviewed by Helen

I am loving this series these vampires are the best gorgeous friendly caring and this is Jason Sullivan's story he works out at the gym keeps fit works hard at his computer business and makes lots of money. He is single and not really looking for love sure there have been a few woman in his long life but nothing permanent that is until he helps someone from the gym change a tyre and this changes his life eternally.

Taylor Grant was just about to marry when she called it off because the groom was having an affair with her best friend a good southern girl with a very mixed up family Taylor has moved cities got herself a job she works hard and is determined to not have sex with anyone and to not have a relationship with anyone that is until a knight in shinning armour won't take no for an answer.

This is a moving story emotional and suspenseful as Taylor and Jason get closer and truths come out about Jason and his family but danger arrives from Jason's past and all bets are off in the love department Taylor needs to be strong and know the full truth of what they are and when family members are hurt badly you will shed some tears a fabulous story that I highly recommend so well written the characters come to life on the pages my suggestion sit back and enjoy this journey with all of its ups and downs that will keep you turning the pages and smiling when that HEA arrives beautifully.

This is a great story that will have you in thralled from the first page it is beautifully written the characters so real they come to life on the pages as we get to know and come close Peter Mackenzie and Alexandra Madison and uncover a mystery hundreds of years old.

Alex Madison was enjoying her life very much she comes form a loving family and has an awesome boyfriend in police detective Peter Mackenzie until one day Peter changes and both of them say things they didn't really mean but this ends their beautiful relationship Alex moves states and they get on with their new lives that is until Alex moves back to LA and discovers that things have changed drastically and this starts a journey that is filled with danger and mystery as they get close to each other again.

This is a fast paced and intriguing story with mystery danger and a very sensual romance that will have you smiling and for me grabbing for the tissues but it is also a story of courage and strength as Alex comes to terms and tries to understand the things that Peter's father tells her and learns more about the evil presence that is roaming the streets and killing innocent people to get to one person. I really enjoy MS Jacoby's stories they keep me turning the pages and this is one that I highly recommend.

Dead Men Play The Game by Jacqui Jacoby

Reviewed by Nas

DEAD MEN PLAY THE GAME by author Jacqui Jacoby is a July 2015 release by Bodycount Productions Inc.

Ian Stuart is a barman in a pub but lives life with his own set of rules. He is not into picking women who frequent the bar.

Then in walks Ashley Barrow, a detective working the most complicated case of ‘Blood-Letting’. Ian takes a look at her and falls instantly! But would Ashley return his feelings?

What would happen when Ashley discovers the secret Ian is hiding? Could he survive when Ian’s enemy comes looking for him and Ash is caught in the middle? 

Read DEAD MEN PLAY THE GAME to discover all the secrets and mysteries of this chilling at times, yet warm and tender too, story. The relationship depicted in this story between Ian and Ash as well as between Ian’s roommates would make you mushy. Author Jacqui Jacoby did a great job of bringing to live on the pages a group of people who would stay with us for a long time. 

I’m eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series.

This is a journey to an eternal HEA that really will have you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages as Ashley's life gets changed by another vampire who is very cruel and wants to get back at Stuart when she is left so ill that Stuart and his friends are not sure what will happen and life is getting more dangerous you will be anxiously cheering them on and smiling at the banter between them all.

This is a story that is very well written the characters come alive on the page there is danger love and hope as Ashley and Ian fall hard and fast for each other in a sensual journey that has lots of ups and downs as well as a very sensual romance and I loved getting to know the other four members of the den Travis, Jason, Quinn and Evan who I am sure will have their own stories to come thank you for a great story that I highly recommend.
