Synopsis

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.

As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

4.25 ‘She’s everything’ Stars

I can honestly say Suzanne Wright is my favorite PNR author, and every time one of her releases is imminent I get giddy with excitement, and this was no exception! 

Lure of Oblivion, Zander and Gwen’s story is the third of The Mercury Pack and my favorite so far! 

Gwen was also fascinated by the whole true-mate thing. To have someone made specifically for you—someone who would never betray you, never hurt you, and would always cherish you—would be something special. She envied them that.

Both main characters were fantastic and totally kickass, and it was amazing to see some of the rest of the gang. The change of setting was bittersweet since though it gave us a fresh view and awesome new characters, of course we couldn’t get the full on experience of the Mercury pack in their land. I did love this new fresh take that Suzanne Wright gave us in this story, and specially that Gwen is a human! I’ve been so looking forward to a shifter/human pairing, so maybe it’s one of the reasons for which it became my fav of this series.

“You’re good at ignoring people, aren’t you, Gwen?”
“Dude, I’m so good at it, I can make people doubt that they’re actually alive.”

You don’t like that? Go Yahoo, Who gives a rat’s ass? I can promise you won’t find my name.”

LMAO! Nobody, and I mean nobody does this type of snarky, witty humor like Ms. Wright! I mean, it takes one to know one, right?! How could I not be completely in love with Gwen – as usual with SW’s heroines – and all her sarcastic and teasing splendor?! And Zander… Oh Lordy, was that wolfy HOT!!! And for someone who claims to be so aloof and apathetic to others (outside of his pack), he sure does shows us a different and how caring, loving and POSSESSIVE he is towards Gwen from the very start. Oh, and OTT sexy, how could I for get that?! Zander was ‘ovary imploding’ hot! 

“So, you like to use toys in bed?” 
Zander grinned wickedly and lightly squeezed her thigh. “You’d be my toy, baby.”

Suzanne Wright has once again created true PNR beauty, and given us EVERYTHING in Lure of Oblivion: funny, emotional, thrilling, sexy, steamy and loving endless moments that are keep getting us more and more addicted to her stories and all these characters. And the new countdown start till the new SW brilliancy, and I can’t wait!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 

She was more. She was everything.

You’re already mine, and I’m already yours. Nothing will change that. Not a thing. I wanted you for keeps before I realized we were mates. I am keeping you, no matter what.”

Synopsis

 

One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble.  He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.

The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.

Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.

With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.

***

Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.

Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.

***

Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started.

Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.

Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail.

Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was.

His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.

Synopsis

 

Mary Persephone Hail

Mary—well-wished-for child.

Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child.  Persephone, though?  Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail?  Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.

Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask?  Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival.  Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person.  He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds.  Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life.  But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind.  Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

Synopsis
 

Charlotte Manning never expected to see Chad Tomlinson again. He was her best friend growing up, but he moved away during middle school and she never had the chance to act on her crush. Not until he moves back to Brooklyn—a grown-up, hot cop version of the boy she once knew.

Chad’s happy to be back in his old stomping grounds and more than interested in reconnecting with the girl he never forgot. But when someone makes it clear that they have it out for Charlotte, Chad will need to step up and use his skills—and his military connections—to protect the woman who’s always been meant to be his.

Header Protecting Charlotte

 

Awww…What super story ‘second chance’,childhood friends to lovers story!

And a holiday theme tale to boot! Charlie and Chad have a chance meeting after more than a decade of separation and when recognition comes, let’s just say these two are full on with the idea of getting to know the adult and hot version of their teen bffs! With a bit of a push for a meddling charming family, of course, lol.
From then on it was a sweet and seductive series of dates that we all could see would result in a forever kind of love: a teen crush turned to full on love!
The only point that detracted from having a higher rating, was result of some of Chad expressions and thoughts, that are one of my biggest pet peeved of ‘compared all women with’ Charlie, and my dreaded ‘have always and only loved’ her, yes, I know it’s just minor details, but since none are virgins, and since he was with other women, that just makes the expression and that forever love less believable for me. Yep, I’m weird like that, but if those things were out I’d love this deliciously sweet and hot story that much more!
Rochelle Paige always delivers the most pleasurable and enticing little novellas, and this was no exception! And how cool is that she heard the readers that ask for more of Chad and Charlie after the Bleed Blue 69 Anthology, and Unexpected Claim?! And even now I wanted even more of these two, specially in the future. I can never get enough Epilogue, lol!

“You were my first love back when we were too young to know what it meant. You’re going to be my last love, too, as we grow old together. Hell, beautiful. You’re the only woman I’ve ever loved.”

Synopsis

When small-town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn’t be stronger, but the timing couldn’t be worse.

Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids and himself is his only priority.

Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that’s perfect for them – a sleepy little town in Nebraska. She’s learned from life that there are no hopes and dreams. The only thing to look forward to is peace. And that’s what she works hard to build for herself and her brother. Right up until Hix walks into her life.

Hix can’t fight the pull and stay away from Greta for long. And Greta’s finding it hard not to hope for something more with all the promise that is Hix.

But when the first murder that’s happened in over five decades rocks his small, sleepy county, Hix has got to learn to trust again, convince Greta to take a shot with him, and at the same time catch a killer.

In other words, things are definitely…Complicated.

4.75 ‘Uncomplicated’ Stars

Woohooooooo! A new all time fav from KA!

“It’s more complicated than that,” Hix informed him.
“People say that when they’re trying not to see how simple stuff really is.”

I can’t express how much I ADORED and devoured every single word of this book! We get the best of Kristen Ashley, and I couldn’t have loved Hixon and Greta (plus all the incredible secondary characters!) more and they will be forever ingrained in my memory, as one of KA’s fav couples – only second to Ty and Lexie, which I worship, so that’s saying a lot – and I couldn’t get enough of this story, so much so I’d love even more Epilogue!

“Marriage is not a guessing game. It requires constant communication to keep it strong.”

“Oh yes.
I’d finally found it.
Something worth fighting for.
And if I had to, I was going to fight for it.
Because I was falling in love with complicated.”

Enrapturing plot, heart thumping love story, intriguing suspense, incredibly deep and complex characters and SO much EMOTION! I cried, I laughed, I sobbed and I bit my nails and sigh and swooned with these two and I couldn’t be any happier! And one of the thing I loved the most?! How even though we get a couple of KA’s brand of @sshole actions/words by the H, Hix very fast realizes his mistakes and apologizes! Yes, he does grovel and does it earnestly, and best of all, Greta is no doormat, and doesn’t fall immediately by his swoon worthy apologies and justifications! I ADORED that!

Complicated was so beyond everything I could have expected and dreamed of: KA perfection! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Hix knew the ride he was taking to fall in love was over.
At the same time it never was and never would be.
That was what love was, he knew right then.
An endless night of beauty that didn’t include making plans to retire to your RV.
Just sitting back and seeing what came next in your never-ending journey of discovery.
He was in love with Greta Kate Dare.”

“That all sounds really complicated, Hix,” she replied softly, her voice
breathy.
“No, sweetheart, all that is really fuckin’simple.”

 

 

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
