About the Book

Eight years ago, Kyle Stafford had everything a seventeen-year-old kid could want — the latest gadgets, the best clothes, the newest sports car, and a palatial home. A single lapse in judgment changed everything. Now he’s lucky if he eats once a day. Taking refuge in a small cave to avoid a torrential downpour, he’s hoping for a safe place to sleep. What he gets is far from restful… and definitely not safe.

Roen of House Vakeor takes his job as a guard very seriously. When his patrol leads him to one of the hidden portals to the humans’ side, he stumbles — quite literally — into a young human male sleeping right at his realm’s front door. Whether the human knows where the entrance is or not, Roen’s duty requires him to take the young man prisoner — back to House Vakeor.

This is my first time reading a book by Mychael Black, and I really enjoyed it! I love books about the fae and I can’t wait for the rest of the series to become available. Firewalk with Me is book one in the Fae-ry Tales series. Roen’s character drew me in from the beginning, and I wanted to know everything about him. My heart hurt for Kyle and what he’d been through with his family, and I was so glad that Roen gave him a chance. The chemistry between the two was intense, and I hope we see more of them in future books in the series. The story ended with not quite all of the loose ends tied up, but it was apparent that it was done that way on purpose, leaving the reader hungry for the next book.

Spotlighted Review at We Write Romance!


I’m excited to announce that my review of Rough Edges, by Jannifer Hoffman, is the spotlighted review over at We Write Romance!

“While this is a great love story, Rough Edges is so much more than a romance novel. With intrigue, suspense, and a murder mystery, you’re sure to find yourself lost in the world of the Rocking T Ranch and the small town of Danango, Colorado. Rough Edges is an emotional tale of love, hope, and trust… it will keep you guessing, throwing in unpredictable surprises here and there.”

Recent book review…



I recently reviewed Haunted Destiny by Kelly Abell, a YA paranormal romance,  for The Novel Blog.

“The characters of Destiny, Jake, and Grams Rose were likeable. And of course what would a teen story be without the super popular girl we all love to hate? While Amy’s character comes across as snobby and cruel, there are times you can’t help but feel sorry for her. The characters were all well developed, even the secondary ones. You could tell the author put some thought into the storyline.”

Review: My Man Michael

My Man Michael (SBC Fighters, Book 4)


My Man Michael by Lori Foster
rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I am not typically a fan of futuristic books, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. As a fan of Lori Foster, I figured if anyone could pull it off it would be her.

Michael Manchester, Mallet, is laid up in the hospital after an accident. His fighting career ended, he’s desolate and unsure of what to do with his life.

Kayli shows up from a time in the future claiming she can heal Michael’s wounds, for a price of course. If he goes back to the future with her and trains the warriors of her colony, she will make him whole again.

Not able to pass up the opportunity to have full use of his legs again, not to mention that he thinks Kayli is a total hottie, Michael agrees – thinking that she has to be joking and he’ll wake up at any moment.  Finding himself in an unfamiliar land with technology beyond his wildest dreams, Michael faces the reality that he has indeed travelled to the future. Fighting to change the colony’s rules and procedures, Michael ends up falling in love with Kayli.

This book is a remarkable journey through self-growth, learning, and compromise. The future may hold all sorts of wonders, but they still have their issues that need to be resolved. If you enjoy stepping out of reality, you’ll love this story!

Moonlight Protector Review

Moonlight Protector, the first book in the Ashton Grove Werewolves series, has been reviewed by Shannon’s Satin & Lace Reviews, a romance and erotic lit site.

Here is the full review:

Marin Thomas is on the run from her worst nightmare and ends up in the arms of Cole, the sweetest most beautiful man she has ever know. That is after Cole stands guard in his wolf form comforting her in the wake of escaping near death. But his cover is blown when he shifts shapes in the middle of the night while in her arms. Realizing that Gabrielle and Cole’s explanation of werewolves is true, she begins to believe that their notion that she is the mate to one of the three brothers may not be ludicrous after all. As she begins to heal the emotional scars from Stephan’s abuse, the wounds are ripped open tearing at both her and Cole’s heart. He is madly in love with her and will risk his life to protect her. The danger she has brought into the brothers’ lives makes her heart ache.

Will she chose Cole as her mate or will Gabrielle’s gentle touch and gorgeous eyes steal her heart? Can the brothers stop Stephan before he kills Marin?

Not your typical romance novel, the story line of this book brings to life real fears and takes you through the journey of a frightened woman. As she finds her way from a weak insecure victim to a strong vibrant woman, your faith in the ability to heal wounds and renew love will flourish. I definitely recommend this book. Once again, Jessica Coulter Smith has done an amazing job!!!
