"Karma" by A.E. Woodward

Karma_Amazon_iBooks_Smash Synopsis
At thirty-two Tommy Garvin never thought he’d be playing house. Especially not with his best friend. But when life throws lemons at you, it hurts. Then once the pain subsides you adjust and figure out how to make lemonade. It was apparent to everyone that Parker and
Khloe needed Tommy, but in a strange way he needed them just as much. 

None of them could have imagined what a life without Katie would be like and they certainly couldn’t have predicted what would come from the gaping hole she left behind. No one knew what would rise from the ashes, but one thing is for certain-life sure has a way of knowing what’s needed. It’s karma.

"Bite the Bullet" by C.C. Wood

I don't know what happened to my life.

Just a few months ago, I was independent and had an exciting job I loved. Now, along with my friends, I'm in hiding.

Why? Because I'm one of the Five, a group of human women bestowed with powers and abilities to fight and control supernatural beings. A prophesy was written about us centuries ago. We are supposed to save the world, though none of us knows how.

Now, Cornelius, the leader of a malevolent group known as the Faction believes that by killing us and absorbing our power, he will become unstoppable in his bid to control not only the supernatural domain, but the entire world.

After evading capture and an attempt on my life forced me into months of hiding, I finally have a chance to take action against the Faction — as bait.

Asher Leroux, the vampire tasked with helping me, makes me feel things I don't understand. It's as if he fills the empty places in my soul, spaces that I didn't know existed.

As the final battle draws closer, I know that defeating the Faction won't give me back the life I once had, but maybe that's not such a bad deal after all.

"What the Lady Wants" by Nika Rhone

Nika Rhone - What the Lady Wants - Virtual Book Tour

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: December 14, 2015

The heiress…
She’d wanted him since she was eighteen. Four years away hasn’t cooled the heat Doyle arouses in her, which means it’s time for Thea to take the former Marine by the horns and open his eyes to everything he’s missing. What will it take to prove that she’s not some untouchable porcelain doll, but a red-blooded woman determined to finally get her man?

The bodyguard…
Honor forced Doyle to consider Thea off-limits. Keeping her that way was proving much more difficult. Every time he turns around she’s there, wreaking havoc on his senses, making him think about long, sweaty nights and how good she would feel wrapped up in his arms. How long could a man be expected to ignore the woman who calls to his every secret desire?

The danger…
But Doyle has a secret that could jeopardize not only the first fragile bonds of love, but Thea’s very life. Will he be able to act before it’s too late for them both?

Ridiculous, really, since the man didn’t have a clue. He either treated her as a museum
piece to be safely guarded and surrounded in bubble wrap whenever a tiny bump loomed on the
road of life, or he treated her the same way her had when he’d first come to work for her father:
like a big brother. A very domineering, overprotective big brother. 


Thinking of Doyle in the big brother role had been all well and good when she was
thirteen, but she’d grown up in the nine years since then. Too bad Doyle seemed to have missed that
little fact. When she looked at him now, she didn’t see the guy who taught her to hold her
breath so she could swim underwater for two whole minutes, or who had sat up with her all night
while she cried her eyes out after her dog had dug under the fence and then been hit by a car. 

No, when she looked at Brennan Doyle, she saw a tall, darkly tanned man whose military
training showed in every disciplined line of his well-toned body, whose intelligence and wit
shone from twinkling hazel eyes that could stop a girl dead with one look, whose very presence
in a room could start her heart tripping in a triple-time beat no salsa could match. She’d racked
up more sweaty dreams about the man than she cared to count, starting when she was sixteen and
didn’t even understand what sweaty dreams were all about. 

Doyle, her big brother? Not in a million years. 

But knowing how she felt didn’t change a thing about how he felt. Or didn’t feel. That
was the part that made her the craziest. She didn’t know if that spark of something she
sometimes thought she saw in his gaze meant anything or if she was just pathetically projecting
what she wanted to see into those beautiful, see-into-your-soul eyes. 

Thea sighed, putting aside the sketch pad and turning on her laptop. It wouldn’t hurt to do
an Internet search for interior design firms based in Denver, Pueblo, and maybe even Colorado
Springs. At least it would help to keep her mind off of the what-ifs and maybes that surrounded
her turbulent feelings regarding what to do about Doyle. 

Attracting men was not something she’d ever really gotten the hang of. Rebuffing them,
now that she had gotten down to a science by her second semester at college, right after the Dave
Disaster. He had been her first, and only, lover and it had been, well, a disaster. She’d caught
him cheating. He’d accused her of being frigid and needy, and she’d lost whatever small amount of
self-confidence she’d started with. After that, it had been easier, and safer, just to avoid
relationships altogether. 

Attracting men was more Lillian’s tour de force. If only Thea could ask for Lil’s help.
But that would mean admitting to her friend that she was still hung up on Doyle after four years
of silent denial. Maybe she should write to Dr. Phil. Dear Dr. Phil; There’s a sexy ex-Marine
living in the guest house on my parents’ estate, and I dream about him every night in enough
detail to make Hugh Heffner blush, but I don’t know how to tell him I want to tear his clothes off
and have wild monkey sex with him until neither of us can walk straight. What do I do? 

A faint shudder ran through her. Okay, what she definitely shouldn’t do was think of
Doyle and wild monkey sex in the same sentence. The same paragraph. The same time zone.
With a groan, Thea saved her search results and shut down the computer. She needed
help all right, and it was time to swallow her pride and ask for it. The hardest part was going to
be finally confessing the truth to her friends.

Where to start  with my thoughts on “What the Lady Wants” (Boulder Bodyguards Book 1) by Nika Rhone? 

It is well written and has an intriguing plotline – even if it may not seem that original when reading the blurb – you will be surprised by the way it is written. 

Nika Rhone is a “new to me” author that managed to draw me in within the first chapters. It was an fun read for the most time. Thea’s discussions with her friends were fun to “listen” to and how they really nailed the facts (like maybe … perhaps… ) 

And to see on the other side through the eyes of the “Object” of Thea’s desire – aka Doyle - the results of their “plots” was just hilarious at times. 

That alone would have been a fun read with Thea and her friends as well as Doyle being real great written characters, but in the end the author mixed some action into it, which made it really a perfect book. 

I can see definitively some books on the horizon for some of the secondary characters of this book.
Please enjoy this great read

Nika Rhone has been fascinated with storytelling from the moment that first book was placed in her eager little hands, starting a lifelong love affair with the written word.  Eventually, though, reading other people’s stories just wasn’t enough, so she started to write down her own.  The magic of creating brand new worlds and the people who live in them keeps her hard at work thinking up the next set of characters she can torture before giving them their happy ending.  She lives in her hometown on Long Island, New York with the two men in her life: her super-indulgent husband and their outrageously spoiled shelter dog.

Katie’s world came crashing down in an instant.

Her husband, daughter, and unborn baby. . . all gone in a flash. The life that she’d come to know, gone before she ever really got to live it.

With a broken heart, she deals the only way she knows how, by shutting it all off. No communicating, no feelings, just pure nothingness.

Alone with nothing but her own thoughts and a well meaning family, she moves back to her childhood home, a horse farm. It’s there that she finds herself healing along with the horses her family rehabilitates. But when Parker McKenzie comes back into her life she’s reminded of all that went wrong, and all that she lost.

Will Katie ever begin to heal? Or will her secrets and loss be too much for her to overcome?

Perhaps, this is her kismet.

Series: Love Stings, Book #1
As a young woman, Abby Carmichael had it all—until the night a stranger tore it away…A year and half after the brutal sexual assault, Abby is finally starting to feel like her old self. Teaching dance classes with enthusiastic kids is just the kind of job she needs—far away from probing eyes or vicious intentions of the opposite sex. When she connects with one of her students, Natalie, it isn’t long until she meets her father, Deputy Ben James.

Ben James is just a regular guy, working to make a life for himself and his daughter…

That’s what Abby tells herself when her sudden attraction for Ben catches her off guard. Abby has been steering clear of men for obvious reasons, and the idea of wanting that kind of relationship is more terrifying than intriguing. But with his doe-eyed daughter tugging at her dance uniform, Ben takes notice.

He’s ready for love, but does her past hold too many secrets? 

After the assault, Abby coped by using heavy medication and fell into an ugly chain of one-night stands. But now that she’s out of rehab and finally on the right track, it’s only a matter of time before Ben finds out.

Will Abby be the true love Ben has always wanted? Or is she a tangled challenge, leading to yet another…
