HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYONE

  Happy Wednesday all . Today is zombie Wednesday but these zombies have a twist . Let me introduce you all to EMMA'S ROSE the cave by Eric A Shelman


                         BOOK BLURB


      
IN AN ANCIENT CAVE IN ROMANIA . . .

Wealthy philanthropist Arthur Wells, in need of a family getaway with his wife, Joan, and his daughter, Emma, arranges a trip to Romania. His intention is to explore an ancient cave system he read about, located in Constanta, on the Black Sea coast.

The name of the cave, unearthed in 1986, is Pestera Movile. It has been sealed from the light of day for over five-and-a-half million years, preserved beneath more than 20 meters of clay. Yet, despite the toxic environment and the lack of light and oxygen within, life forms thrive - all of them blind and colorless. Many are carnivorous.

Most are found nowhere else on Earth.

In this harsh, chemosynthetic environment, Arthur stumbles across something he hopes will advance medical science. Unbeknownst to his guide, he takes a sample of the strange flower.

Arthur Wells has no way of knowing what Emma's Rose is about to unleash upon the world.

                           MY REVIEW 
        
     Ok I have read almost all of Eric's books and was excited to read his new zombie book . Emma's Rose . I was blown away with the book started out . In a cave in Romania where it has been hidden from the world . With its toxic ecosystem not many people have ventured down there . While on a holiday Arthur and his family decide to head to Constanta on the black sea coast .  After venturing down into the cave he is in awe of the life that is surviving down there . Most of the specimens have never seen the light of day . When stumbles into part of the cave that have never been opened before . He finds a beautiful flower which he decides to take home, hoping that it will bring the cure to cancer or some other deadly disease. But what he inadvertently done is, well not going to tell you, you have to read the book .
      In this series , just like all his series , you will find characters that are relatable to you and you will start to really care for them . In this book it is Arthur , this man was so full of himself at the start of the book . He came off as kind of arrogant and he thought he could do anything . But as his world is falling apart around and his family is dying . You see a change in him you see him become a more humbled man that wants to stop what ever is happening in the end of the world . You also see him toughen up as he is humbled .  The other two relatable characters are Ramona and Harvey . April is another character you will like . She gets tougher and stronger as the story goes on . But the main character the rose is one sinister flower. Trust me after reading this book I am going to look at roses differently from now on .
      This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time . The author has built a different type of zombie that really works and also the new delivery system of the virus makes you never want to get flowers again . Just trust me on this one people .
The book is character driven you will cheer for them and you will laugh with them . Most definitely you will cry for them and with them . I read this book in one sitting, well into the night . I just couldn't put it down , it kept calling me back just to read a couple more pages and 3 chapters later I was like wow .  I so can't wait to find out what happens with these characters . So when is book two coming out , can't be soon enough for this girl . So if you want a good start to a hopefully great new series . Check out EMMA'S ROSE the Cave by Eric A Shelman . I promise you , you will not be disappointed and you will be begging Eric for the second book .

WELCOME TO A RAINY WEDNESDAY

 Welcome to a wet and rainy Wednesday .  Its a great day to grab a book and snuggle down and read the day away .  Today we are going to review a book I couldn't put down . THE DEVIL'S PRAYER by Luke Gracias


                         BOOK BLURB 

 
A nun commits suicide in front of thousands in Spain. In Australia, Siobhan Russo recognises that nun as her mother, Denise Russo, who disappeared six years ago.

In search of answers, Siobhan travels to the isolated convent where her mother once lived. Here she discovers Denise’s final confession, a book that details a heinous betrayal that left her crippled and mute, and Denise’s subsequent deal with the Devil to take revenge. In the desperate bargain Denise made with the Prince of Darkness, she wagered Siobhan’s soul.

As Siobhan discovers the fate of her soul, she learns that hidden within the pages of her mother’s confession is part of The Devil’s Prayer, an ancient text with the power to unleash apocalyptic horrors.

And now her mother’s enemies know Siobhan has it.

Can Siobhan escape an order of extremist monks determined to get the Prayer back? Can she save the world from its own destruction?

                             MY REVIEW 
  
     I started this book before bed one night and well lets just say it was a late night by the time I put the book down. The author took me on such a roller coaster ride that was adrenaline based and had me on the edge of my seat for most of the night . The story line alone had me hooked . A young woman Siobhan is trying to figure out what happened to her mother . After seeing a nun who looked like her mother hang herself . That is the first piece of the puzzle that Siobhan must solve to in the mystery of why her mother disappeared 6 years prior .  The pat that Siobhan travels down is dark and scary, armed with only the confession of her mother and the mysterious prayer hidden within the words on the paper . Siobhan is in grave danger and she must outsmart her mother's enemies and save the world from ultimate destruction . 
    The characters are very well written and complex. Siobhan is a fighter and doesn't stop until she has all the answers she needs .  She finds more about her history as she reads her mother's confession . The monks are well lets just say evil . They want the confession back and will do any thing it takes to get it back . The characters will have you cheering for them in Siobhan's case and wanting to kill them yourselves as in the monks case . 
    The author does such a great job mixing the historical part of the story and what is happening in the real life of Siobhan .  The book takes off like a bat out of hell and doesn't stop the roller coaster ride . The author takes us on a journey of epic proportions . The twists and turns are every where. You think you have it figured out and bam the author takes you in a totally different  direction .  The author did a great deal of research to keep this book as accurate as it is. The mixture of the thirteenth history and the real up to date time. The way the author describes everything has you actually seeing the monasteries in your mind as you read The book is part the historian . part the Da Vinci Code and The Omen all rolled into one great read . So if you like a great book that will keep you reading all night long and take you away to a place that will have you thinking all night long . Check out THE DEVIL'S PRAYER  you will not be disappointed .

HAPPY RELEASE DAY

 Today is a good day , looks like we will finally hopefully be getting some rain . Also it is release day for Cathy  Jackson and her new book  YOURS FOREVER (yours to ...... book 3)


                         BOOK BLURB

    
Maximillian Roselle needs Ruthie Eden like he needs air to breathe. Her compassion, passion, and faith have awakened his desire to love and be loved; and the attention she has received from his colleague, Ken Davis, has galvanized his determination to make her his own.

Ken knows a good thing when he sees it, so when his friend Max struggled with his relationship with Ruthie, he stepped in to give Max a push. Now he lends his friendship to bolster and encourage Max's faith in God and Ruthie.

Ruthie Eden enjoyed being single. She busied herself with her interests and her writing and hadn't seriously thought about sharing her life with anyone—until she met the Roselle family. With her heart open to be loved, the attention of other men has her head spinning.

Enter Jace Nelson, brought in to collaborate on Max and Ken's new video project. Charming and roguish, he has less-than-honorable intentions toward Ruthie. He takes this enterprise as an oppurtunity to turn Ruthie's head and change her heart, and doesn't care what claim anyone else might have.

                          MY REVIEW 
       
      This is the third book in the YOURS TO series and what a great way to wrap up the series . Ruthie and Max are happily falling in love and slowly becoming a family with his children.  But with all the sunshine and happiness there is also a little rain. When a smooth talking man enters their lives . Will Max loose Ruthie when Jace tries to sway her heart . 
    This was an enjoyable book it brings books 1 and 2 together nicely . We see the couple growing and falling in love with each other. It seems to be a whirlwind kind of courtship but when hearts are involved they usually work fast and know what they want. Max and Ruthie have grown a lot since book 2 . Max is becoming the man that Ruthie wants and needs but there is still that nagging fear that he has and sometimes he still pushes her away. He is becoming a good man and a strong man knowing what he wants . Ruthie is still na├»ve but she seems to be coming a stronger character and more of the woman that everyone wants .  But like most women when someone says something that makes her doubt herself , she starts to doubt the love of Max and her love for him .  Ken is back in book three and he is really becoming Max's best friend and a help to Ruthie . He is like the older brother that sees what is going on and approves . Then going about and giving them a little shove in the right direction. He is also very protective of both Max an Ruthie and wants to see them together .  We also get to dive deeper into Ruthie's past and why her mom treated her the way she did . Trust me when you get to that part have a box of tissue ready . You will cry and want to hug both of them tightly .  Now the man that everyone will dislike Jace, he is the cocky you tuber coming in to help on a project . You automatically get the dislike vibe from him and you don't know why at first . Then when he does what he does to make Ruthie doubt herself and her love for Max . You really just want to punch him in the face . You will cheer when you see it actually happen .  The characters have matured and become more complex in this story. You will love them and how much they have grown. 
    This book was a very enjoyable read . I really liked this series , the author makes us really feel something for her characters and fall in love with them . There are just a couple of things I wish we could of seen . More out in the world interaction as a family , they seem to at the house and don't get out much. Also I wish they would of went with Ruthie to her church . It would be great to see them in that situation . Meeting Ruthie's friends and church family.  Other then those two things I really enjoyed this book and this series . The characters are great and the story will pull at your heart strings and make you smile and cry and then smile again . So if you want a good series that is an enjoyable easy clean read that will make you happy . Check out the YOURS FOREVER and the whole YOURS TO series . You will not be disappointed .

GOOD THURSDAY ALL

  Good day all , I hope you are all having a great   Thursday . Today we are going to review GRAVE SURPRISE by Charlaine Harris . But this is the graphic novel not the actual book .


                            BOOK BLURB

 The official graphic novel adaptation of Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris, the author of The Southern Vampire Mysteries! Harper Connelly, a psychic capable of finding dead people and reading their last thoughts, discovers a grave in Memphis with two bodies: a man centuries dead, and a girl recently deceased. How the two bodies ended up together would be perplexing enough... but the sudden appearance of a third body the next morning makes this a mystery that perhaps even Connelly can't solve!

                             MY REVIEW 
   I  must say that Charlaine Harris is one of my go to authors when I want a witty  read , From her Sookie Stackhouse books to Harper Connelly books . I have read everyone of them. So colour me excited when I say that they made the first book from the Harper Connelly series into a graphic novel . Yes I decided to see how it was and man I wasn't disappointed . The graphic novel brought Harper to life for me . It was great to see her kick some but and put her  brother in his place over and over . 
     So who is Harper you ask, well she is a physic that hears dead people and with her step brother they go around helping people . She is a strong kick butt character that only wants to help people but things are always there tripping her up . Toliver is her step brother and he helps Harper any way he can . They are such a formidable pair . I really like the character of Harper . she is tough and fragile at the same time . Charlaine writes such strong female characters that  you can't help but fall in love with .
   This isn't a new book by the author but it is a republished book in the form of a graphic novel . The characters take on a new dimension and seem to come alive more as you read . It really brings a new renewed excitement for the Harper Connelly series . The art is dark and it just adds to the whole eeriness of the story line and ties in seamlessly with the story . I must say that the graphics add a whole new dimension to the story and refreshes it nicely .  I am so truly happy that her books are becoming graphic novels . Trust me I will be getting these books in hard copy form so I can add them to my ever growing graphic novel selection . So if you at into graphic novels and love Charlaine Harris check out her graphic novels . You will not be disappointed 
 I was given a copy of the book through the publisher and netgalley for my honest opinion.

GOOD MONDAY ALL

   Good Monday all today is Zombie Monday . We are going to review a new graphic novel . ZOMBIES ( A Brief History of Decay ) by Oliver Peru.

                         BOOK BLURB 

  
A vivid and richly illustrated graphic novel, Zombies offers an action-packed tour through an apocalyptic vision of America.

Mankind is no longer at the top of the food chain. Zombies have taken their place, and nothing can stop them. Is this the end of humanity? Perhaps, but for some it is only the beginning.

Six billion living corpses are all that remains of civilization. Among the few survivors is Sam Coleman, a man who owes his salvation to Smith & Wesson and a little luck. Fleeing Seattle at the onset of the zombie outbreak, he was forced to leave his daughter behind. Yet now that silence has fallen over the city, he believes that she may still be alive. And his conscience serves up a constant reminder that to be human in this grim world is to have hope—and to keep fighting.

                       MY REVIEW 
 
      I was given this graphic novel for an honest review.  This graphic novel is a fresh new perspective on the zombie genre. Let me introduce you to Sam Coleman who is trying to get out of Seattle at the start of the apocalypse. Armed with only his smith & Wesson he has fought his way out but he has left someone important behind his daughter . Now that it has fallen silent he wonders is she still alive . He wrestles with his conscience and realizes what it is like to fight and still be human in his new grim reality
   Now I am a zombie lover and will read anything to do with them . So when I was offered this book I was so happy . I actually sat down and devoured this book in one sitting . The author takes us on a roller coaster ride . You cheer for our main character Sam and you pray that he will survive and find his daughter . He is a man that you can't help but want to cheer for . You can see how the guilt of him leaving he daughter behind . But you know that when it comes to the apocalypse its everyone for themselves .  Then you see him come to a realization that the grim new world he is the minority and he is going to find his daughter . Which I will tell you to read the book to find out . Yes I am just that mean .
    The author uses the Pacific North West as the setting of his zombie story . Which to me is a nice change cause it seems all the zombie stories seem to be based in New York or Los Angeles.    The author kept a steady pace through out the story and the action was good . There is gore when the zombies are blown up and shot but that is true in all zombie stories . But the characters are so much more human compared to some books . They are people trying to survive anyway they can . This was a nice good fast read for me the story was set a steady pace and the graphics are well drawn  and do the book justice .  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves zombies . If you love TWD  you will enjoy this book . So check it out . I have given it 5 stars .

HAPPY WEDNESDAY ALL

Happy Wednesday all, hope your week is going good . Today we are going to review ORACUS The Lavorian Rider by Paul Gaskill


                            BOOK BLURB 


  


"I read this book on holiday. It kept me on my sun bed and out of the pool."


"I read this book on holiday. It kept me on my sun bed and out of the pool."

"This an amazing read, thank you for letting us into your world, Paul Gaskill."

"A fantastic read from start to finish."


The Lavorian Rider is the first novel of Paul Gaskill's young-adult fantasy trilogy.

From living in a small village where knowledge of the King's dictatorial reign is unknown, Oracus' ordinary life is turned upside down when he forges a bond with a Lavorian and becomes its Rider. When the King's soldiers seize the village and kill his father, Oracus joins the rebellion and endeavours to exact his vengeance. With a Lavorian by his side, he becomes a vital factor in the war that will determine the land's fate.

Can Oracus survive and help to end the King's tyranny?


                            MY REVIEW 
   Welcome to a cool new young adult fantasy book . Let me introduce you to Oracus a young man from a small village. He is living a good life because the king doesn't know his village is even there. He has left them alone . But there is more to Oracus then even he knows . With the help of his lavorian that he has bonded with and the rebellion team . He will save his village and the land and end the kings tyranny once and for all . 
     This is a book full of fantasy and is such a good read . You will be sucked in to the story and will want to cheer for Oracus and his friends .  He is taken from a small village and becomes such an important part of saving the land that he loves. There is so much that has been hidden from Oracus when he finds out that he is a rider as his lavorian creature finds him . They go through some trials and tribulations as they grow to trust each other . Now throw in an evil king who is destroying everything and everyone Oracus loves . They must come together to fight the king and save the world . Oracus grows up fast and you see him come to terms with things that have turned his world upside down . Together with his friends you see them become a great team that fights the evil. 
      This is a very sweet fantasy story that is also a gripping coming of age story in it . I got sucked into the story in the first chapter . The author puts so much into this story , the fantasy is great and the characters are wonderful . You just want to hug them all at one point .and tell them that every thing will be ok .  The problems that Oracus goes through like finding his place in the world , are problems that most people go through at one time or another . This is a great book for those who want to get lost in a good fantasy that will sweep you off your feet and taken away to a world where good versus evil . You will cheer and cry. I will highly recommend this book for any person of any age that just wants a good read . You will be glued to the pages . Great book for the kids this summer

GOOD MONDAY MORNING ALL

   Good Monday all . Today we are going to review a great new children's book BANSHEE IN THE BASEMENT (Tales of Dark Wonder book 1) by Francis Leggett


                            BOOK BLURB

   When ten year old Danny finds himself alone with his vile Aunt Agnes, and his mother suddenly vanished, he begins to experience mysterious things he cannot explain. Can he and his new friend Pip figure out what is going on and escape his aunt's horrendous house or will he be stuck there forever?


                            MY REVIEW  
            This was a fun read and kids are really going to enjoy it . Meet Danny a ten year old little boy who has to stay with his Aunt Agnes . She is evil and cruel and poor Danny doesn't know what or why he is there .  He is all alone and starts to experience some eerie things . He knows he has to find out what is going on or he will be stuck at Aunt Agnes house forever . With his friend Pip he will uncover what is going on in the basement . Will Danny survive and will he ever see his mom again .
    This book is very well written and has a goosebumps type feel to it . I really enjoyed reading . The characters are very well written and you can't help but want to pick Danny up and hug him and tell him that everything will be ok .  Also you really dislike Aunt Agnes she is just plain mean almost evil in a way .  This would be a great book to read around the campfire with a flashlight in your hands .
But enough of my babbling . I have asked someone that is closer to the age of the readers .

Lachlan age almost 7
Do you like the characters?   Yes, I like them all except Aunt Agnes.  I like Danny because he's nice.  I like Pip because she's adventurous and she was Danny's only friend.  I liked Merelda the cat because she was cute, funny, and black like my own cat Satchmo.
Was Aunt Agnes scary to you?  She was more mean than scary.  She made Danny stay in his room a lot and do way too many chores and called him names like Pest instead of Danny.
Overall did you like the book?  And is there anything you disliked about the book?  I loved the book, it was a great mystery and the end was a surprise.   The only thing I disliked was how mean Aunt Agnes was to Danny sometimes.

 So if you want a great book for the kids this summer check out BANSHEE IN THE BASEMENT. 
Your kids wont be disappointed and you will love the story too .

HAPPY TUESDAY ALL

   Happy Tuesday all , hope you all are having a great day so far . Today  we are going to review
NUDES (A Hollywood Romance ) by Sarah Robinson

                         BOOK BLURB

    
Praised by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely, as "Passionate, emotional and uplifting!", contemporary romance author Sarah Robinson brings readers a new standalone novel set in the glamorous hills of Hollywood and tackling challenging themes like the intersection of sexuality and female empowerment.  
  
Ben Lawson is making a comeback... After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don't know a damn thing. As CEO of a movie production company, I'll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I'm unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I'd never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything. 
  
Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her...love her. Instead, I destroyed her. 
  
Aria Rose is baring it all.... 
I knew better. I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world. He even promised me his heart. 
  
But he destroyed everything--my heart, my career, us. 
  
 
 
Disclaimer: This novel is for 18+ years old as it contains graphic sexual content.

                          MY REVIEW
    
     WOW this book just blew me away, don't let the cover dissuade you. This book is about so much more . There is love. lust, betrayal and redemption .  You can't help but fall in love with the main characters .   You watch them fall in love and be betrayed and then come back together . Let me introduce you to Ben and Aria and their hollywood story .
  Ms Robinson has written a book with such great characters . Ben is the swoon worthy guy that all the girls will fall for but there is more to him then meets the eye . He has a past that has made him what he is today. He wants being the head of the movie company his comeback . But things change when he meet Aria . She is an up and coming star  and she is so sweet but strong. She isn't your typical actress , she has a heart and tends to follow it and it hasn't led her astray.  When these two characters meet the heat in the room rises and bang its gets hot in here . They are very good together and when they are together you actually see them relax and be themselves not the characters they protray in the world they are in .  When things go wrong you see Aria become stronger even though her heart is breaking and you see Ben do everything in his power to get to the bottom of what happened . He wants the one woman that made him happy back . You can really feel their pain and you want them back together so much .  There is one character that absolutely hated in the book just cause he is so slimy is Russ . He is the epitome of what a slimy director is like and what he will do to bring down the actress that shunned him . I really wanted to slap him across the face a few times . Tell me what you think of him .
      I will applaud Sarah on handling this topic with the sensitivity she did . This is the first book i have sat down and read in a day . i couldn't put it down, the characters made me fall in love with them and the story is very prevailant in todays world .  It shows inequality between men and women and even though we have come so far there is still sexism that goes on. DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER  there is more to this book then the cover .  I know people have been judging the cover but i will say the cover does the book justice . Just take the chance and read the book and you will fall in love with Ben and Aria and there will be plenty of sex to keep you satisfied . i bet you will read this book in an evening and love every word .  This is my all time favourite book by Sarah Robinson

Children become victims of a madman’s design while the hunt is on for a powerful creature wreaking havoc across parts of the U.S. Lilja begins to question herself and her place in Skothiam’s life even as the very treasure they must protect comes under danger.

                       MY REVIEW
   This is the sequel to Dance of the butterfly and the author takes it up a few notches .  Lilja and Skothiam are back and are still fighting demons . The forces they are fighting against are ramping up the evil and want to take over the world . Will they survive and will they come out of it together .
   The author takes his characters and puts them through the ringer . He writes complex characters that have you feeling their feeling right along with them .  The characters are kick ass and they love hard . I kind of want to Lilja when I grow up . She is strong but yet vulnerable when it comes to Skothiam .
   Mr Carruba writes with such a passion , and weaves such a rich story full of intrigue . mystery and some romance . You will be sucked in from the very first page  and before you know it you are done .
I will say that you should read the first book before you hit this one . You will know more about the characters if you do . So if you want a sweeping saga and aren't afraid to sit down and read a big book that will make time stand still check out this series . I loved both books soo much .

GOOD MONDAY ALL

    Good Monday all , sorry I have bee mia last week been busy reading and doing farm stuff but I am back now and today we are going to review Mike Evan's new book THE UNWELCOMED  - Psychological extreme  horror story .

                            BOOK BLURB


    When hell comes knocking at The Stranger’s door, the Devil answers with a smile. The Stranger tries to find peace living alongside his father, but the beast can only be kept tame for so long, and when the woods are no longer theirs to live in uninterrupted, the unwelcomed make their way in.


                            MY REVIEW

      This is the third book in the series and I was so excited to start reading . I really loved this series and was so waiting to be scared out of my socks. I settled down and started reading we find the Stranger retiring to the north woods trying to get his desires under control . His father is there to teach him but alas things don't always go as planned and the killing starts again . More gruesome this time .
You know there will be no survivors but is this the end of the stranger .
    The Stranger aka Matt Hardin  is back with a vengeance . I think that he just becomes more and more evil as you read . No one is safe with him around , but you see him also trying to curb the killing instinct and living with his dad . Who is a new character this book . We hear of him in the other books in flashbacks but to have him interact with Matt as he heals and hides from the cops . They have a love / hate relationship some of the time because you know they both have that killing bug .
The poor people that end up on the deadly side of the Stranger are all friends and you just want to scream at them not to go into the woods . I sat and screamed a couple of times run you idiots run. But do they listen to me know they get stabbed and mutilated .
    As much as I really loved this book and the ride that the author took us on . I just had trouble at the beginning of getting into it . I just kind of felt that the stranger basically going into hiding kind of dragged just a bit and I didn't really feel the whole father/son bonding time . I know before you all start hating me . I know it is beneficial to the story but I did find it a little on the lacking side . When the stranger started killing again , that's when it started to get really good and I was covering my eyes and screaming at my kindle most of the time .
   I must say that I did enjoy this book and Mike Evans can right a mean horror story . He takes us places that you never know you are going . The Stranger is one of those characters that after you read about him . You will be looking over your shoulder for a long time . I will say that this book is not for the faint of heart if you are squeamish in any way this isn't the series for you . If you love to be scared of your feet and sleep with the lights on for about 2 weeks then check out THE UNINVITED SERIES . YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED

GOOD MONDAY MORNING ALL

   Good Monday morning all . I hope that this day finds you all well and fully caffeinated for the week . Today we are going to review FIRE ON THE FARM (Second chance cowboy romance) by Betty Shreffler,

                          BOOK BLURB

 
Losing the man she loved to a terrible accident, pushes Amy Flanders into a life of independence. Her only source of comfort is her work—a business dedicated to the care and training of horses. Until one lonely night leads her into the arms of Brock Baisdin. A man who fulfills her deepest desires and reignites a flame long forgotten.

Between his picky tastes and running his own business, Brock Baisdin has little time for women, but that doesn't stop him from looking for love. After saving Amy from a cancelled date, Brock is instantly drawn to the shy and beautiful woman hiding secrets beneath her lust-filled baby blues—secrets he finds himself eager to discover.

Undeniable attraction pulls them into each other's arms. Hope draws them into each other's lives. For Amy Flanders, Brock Baisdin may be the man to bring love back into her lonely life, if only she can overcome the wounds of her past and face her biggest fear—risking the pain of another shattered heart.
                        MY REVIEW       
        This book has everything I love horses and cowboys .  Let me introduce you to Amy Flanders and Brock Baisdin .   What do you do when an unbelievable tragedy happens ? You try and heal and start your own business . After Amy goes through the worst thing ever she takes comfort in the only thing she really knows and loves , horses . Rescuing horses that need a good forever home . Working with the horses start to mend her broken heart and healing her soul. Until the night Brock Baisdin walks into the bar and saves her from a date that was cancelled . There is an attraction there but they both have things that have formed them. They are destined to be together but will Amy take the chance and put her heart back on the line and get past her biggest fear . Will there be a happy ending .
      This characters are very well written . Amy is such a sweet woman who has been pulled through the mud after the tragedy of loosing her husband . She pulls herself up and starts to put her life back together . There are times you kind of want to shake her through out the book because she is questioning her feeling for Brock . I kept cheering for Brock and scolding Amy for questioning things . But as you read you see her grow and become a very strong woman that overcomes the past and finds the love she deserves . Brock is a fun loving . caring guy who when he sees Amy finally thinks that its time to settle down . He does have a few ghosts in his past that he over comes . Yes ladies he is very swoon worthy . He is a sexy cowboy that can fill out a pair of wranglers quite nicely .  But to me there is another important set of characters in this book and they are . The horses that come to the ranch that help Amy as much as Amy helps them . They teach each other to trust and let go of the past .  The horses show Amy that unconditional love that will help heal . They are a very big part of the book .
    This book was such a good read . I sat down to start reading and didn't realize that the tears were flowing until I was over half way through. They were a mixture of happy and sad tears . The journey that the characters take is both sad and happy, as you read their story you will be sucked in and cheer for them and honestly you will want to shake them both and tell them that they belong together . The ups and downs kept me on the edge of my seat . The sex scenes had me fanning myself and blushing . They were very well written  and girls you will love them . I like the way the author handled the two men that had Amy's heart , the man of her past , her whole world and the  man that is holding her heart now and wanting in .  So if you want a love story that will keep you reading and have you swooning check out FIRE ON THE FARM  you will not be disappointed

                        BOOK BLURB

   

** ON SALE FOR 0.99 FOR A LIMITED TIME **


"Lisa Kessler is an author to remember!" - Sherrilyn Kenyon #1 NYT Bestselling Author

Skye Olson is a psychic like her mother, and her grandmother before her, but a bad break up with the man she thought was her soulmate has left her confidence in her abilities shaken. While she's in crisis, a real estate tycoon from Atlanta swoops in with his eyes on her shop.

Colton Hayes spent his mortal life plundering royal ships with his pirate crew, but one holy relic changed everything. Now he and the rest of the crew protect the port of Savannah from their captain who traded his cutlass for a fountain pen.

When Colton discovers the captain wants to build a hotel in the heart of historic Savannah, he sets out to stop him, but nothing could prepare him for the violet eyes of the Magnolia Mystic.

Love is a dangerous game for a pirate.

                      MY REVIEW 
     
This is another winner for Lisa Kessler . Always knew pirates were sexy but holy moly Lisa's pirates are oh so sexy .  Let me introduce you to Colton and his crew. The sentinels of Savannah .

   Colton is the quartermaster who has been plundering the sea for his entire mortal life . But as an immortal he has taken on the responsiblity of keeping Savannah safe . Until the day Skye walks into his life . Skye has believed in pirates since she was little  and being a pyschic like her mom and grandmother . When they meet they feel the pull of attraction to each other . They have to come together to stop a land developer from building a big hotel in the heart of Savannah . The land developer is also Colton's old captain . Will they survive what the curse entails and will they find the love they have for each other .
    Omg the characters in this book are so well written . Colton is just swoon worthy , yes ladies i said swoon worthy . He is tall , broad shoulder . sexier then sin . Trust me ladies you will want to climb him . He is knows what he wants and will go after it . He turns out to be a true hero in this book . Skye is a kick butt character in her own right . She is strong and sexy . She kicks butt when she has too but you also see her hurt and scared . Also unsure of herself and her feeling for Colton . But in true Kessler fashion the fight for what they want and the enemy and come out the other side . The cast of characters are all quirky and fun especially the pirate friends of Coltons . You will get a chuckle out of everyone from Eli the ships first gunner , who loves fast cars. To One Eyed Bob the ships cook who now owns a pirate themed restaurant . He makes the best hushpuppies ever .
       This book was a fast read , I started it on a raining afternoon and couldn't put it down . I love pirate books but trust me this isn't your HARRELQUIN romance pirate .  The author takes us on an adventure full of intrigue and there is romance . Lisa has taken the pirate and added so much more to him . You wil laugh and swoon at the characters . So if you like pirates check it out . You will not be disappointed .
