Synopsis

American doctor Tara Moore wants to disappear. On the run from an abusive husband, she seeks shelter on a windswept Irish island and dismisses the villagers' speculation that she is descended from a selkie—a magical creature who is bewitching the island. But when a ghostly woman appears to her with a warning, Tara realizes it was more than chance that brought her to this island. Desperate to escape a dark and dangerous past, she struggles against a passionate attraction to handsome islander, Dominic O'Sullivan. But the enchantment of the island soon overpowers her and she falls helpless under its spell. Caught between magic and reality, Tara must find a way to wield both when a dangerous stranger from her past arrives, threatening to destroy the lives of everyone on the island.

My review:
        Everyone make mistakes. Some mistakes are not worth of mention, but some mistakes you could do it again and again without regrets. To save family business Vanessa is prepared and appears on popular Reality Show on TV, Eye of the Tiger. When she shows on stage she saw him, her Vegas Hunky Hottie one-night stand in one of the entrepreneurs’ seats. She is in panic but does not allow anyone to see that and pray he doesn’t recognize her. When Alex saw Vanessa he recognize her immediately, but she calls herself with different name four years ago and left him after one night. What is that makes him not say no to this woman? He becomes her mentor to help her in her family business.

      
    This story is keeping my attention till the end. It’s warm, funny and sweet. There was one strong woman, which will do whatever takes within the boundaries of normal, to rise and save family business, make her grandfather proud of her and keeps family safe. It means that the book is romance but also include aspects of drama, a little bit and the story is told in 3rd person in funny way.
     Enjoying reading this book I saw Vanessa as very funny and interesting character, also she is strong and wise woman. I like her grandpa and her sister too, her little boy is cute and very interesting. Alex is good looking, rich and independent in his decisions.
      If you enjoy reading books written in 3rd person, about two people in love and their family members this book is for you.

My rating 4/5(great book)

Big Game/Hunted Love#1 by Aden Lowe-Cover Reveal




Big Game Cover


Title:
Big Game: Hunted Love 1
Author:
Aden Lowe
Release Date:
September 15, 2014
Genre:
Western Romance
RECOMMENDED FOR AGES EIGHTEEN AND UP DUE TO EXPLICIT SEXUAL SITUATIONS, AND STRONG LANGUAGE
Synopsis:
When a legendary predator decides prize horses should be on his menu, Kate takes the advice of her neighbor ranchers and hires a big game hunter to track the mountain lion and remove the threat. The hunter arrives to take up the trail, but instead of the seasoned older man she expects, he's young and impossibly sexy.
Freshly back from deployment to Afghanistan as a special forces operative, Jakob needs to clear his head of the horrors of war. When his uncle is injured, Jakob steps in to fulfill the older man's commitment to hunt down a mountain lion on the other side of the state. The prospect of several days in the wilderness with only his horses and dogs for company sounds like the ideal opportunity. Except the infuriating female rancher insists on going along for the ride.
Excerpt:
A faint noise drew Jakob from the twilight that precedes waking, straight into full alert. Unsure what disturbed him, he lay still and allowed his eyes to open a bare slit. Just his luck that mountain lion would be prowling through camp. Unable to spot anything out of place, he sat up, careful not to move too quickly and get his head injury in an uproar again.
Splashing, louder than the stream flowing over the rocks, drew his attention. Fascination froze him in place for an instant, forcing him to just watch. At the creek, Kate straightened and squeezed water from her hair, then flipped it back to swing down her naked back. Water droplets clung to her pale skin like crystals, refracting the light and mesmerizing him.
She half-turned to retrieve something from the ground, revealing the curve of one breast. The sound of Jakob’s agonized groan must have carried, because she straightened and turned to face him, moving too quickly, and lost her balance.
Head wound forgotten, he leaped up and dove across the small camp area in an attempt to catch her before she could fall into the icy water. She recovered just as he reached her, and stood facing him, breathing hard. Something in her face had changed and for the first time since meeting her, Jakob felt as if she actually saw him. The unreachable Ice Queen was gone, and in her place…

Aden Lowe:
As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked. After an insane few months editing his Dom Wars series for him, Lucian convinced me I should try my hand at writing as well. I’m his co-author for Round Six, the final Dom Wars installment, and we will co-write the White Knight Academy series as well. And in Sept 2014, I’ll release my debut solo work, an Erotic Western with BDSM elements, “Big Game: A Hunted Love Novella”. In addition, I have a military series in the planning stages.

My review:

       Emily Del Monte is has big secret about her and her mom. Her mother is very successful writer, but Emily has heavy burden on her shoulders. She and her mother are daydreamers they can go sleeps whenever they want and explore their dreams. This could be fun and extremely dangerous. After big tragedy in their family Emily’s mom is often in her dreams than in reality and Emily must do everything and suppose not to have closest friends. One day good looking guy, named Gabe went in her school and he wants to meet her and be friends with her, because he is fan of her mom. Emily can’t take risk and stay away from him, but this isn’t easy.

      This book really shakes my world of dreams. I finish reading it late in night and I couldn’t sleep, than I remember one anecdote about one very wiser man, Socrates before his death he tells to his friends that if he dies that will be relief, cause if life after death exist that will be relief, if not and he will be turned into nothing that will be relief ether with that thought I fall asleep. I don’t why I telling you that.

      Emily and other characters as Gabe, her mom Lily are very likeable and it’s easy to believe in this story told by Emily. I like very much this girl, she is cute, brave and she takes responsibilities as grown up girl.

This book is about responsibilities, parenting and first love.

Tagline: Love is dangerous for Emily, even in her dreams.

Excerpt 1
Tiny shafts of sunlight stream down from the treetops above us, forming small rings that illuminate the red pine-covered ground below. It’s weird how quiet it is here. There are none of the sounds you’d normally associate with a forest, like the scurrying tread of small animals or the soft breeze rustling through the trees. Everything is completely still.
I rest my forehead against the warm bark of the tree and try to calm my racing thoughts. How do I get us out of this mess? Mom and Evan aren’t here with Gabe and me. At least, as far as I can tell, they aren’t here, and we don’t have any time to find them. Evan and Gabe need to wake up now, or they could die. It’s so simple, yet so complicated. Do I save Gabe’s life? Or do I continue to risk killing him and try to save everyone? If I pull Gabe out, I could risk losing both Mom and Evan inside this dream. I have no idea if Mom’s recognition of me was a moment’s clarity, or something more lasting. I might never be able to locate her and Evan again.
A sob rises in my throat. I can’t help it. I’m so tired and overwhelmed, and we’re all so deeply in trouble. Despite my best efforts, the sob escapes, and then I can’t seem to stop another one from bursting out of my mouth. And then another one. Huge, wrenching cries tear through me, and I double over, my face in my hands, as the tears stream through my fingertips.
It’s all just too much.
I hear Gabe come to stand beside me, and before I can protest, he draws me back into his arms. I can’t seem to stop crying. I’m so embarrassed, but I just can’t stop.
His rough fingers catch the bottom of my chin, and slowly he tilts my face up toward his, so we’re gazing into each other’s eyes. My breath hitches, and it’s not just from all the crying.
“I’m sorry, Em,” Gabe whispers, his soft words loud in the silence surrounding us. “But there’s no one I’d rather be with right now than you.”
Excerpt 2
“Mom,” I whisper softly and give her shoulders a shake. But her eyes remain closed; her lips are half-parted and turned slightly up at the corners as if she’s gazing at something wonderful. Maybe she is.

I sigh and lean in a little closer to her face. “Mom, are you just taking a nap?” I ask in a slightly louder voice and poke her cheek with my index finger. When she still doesn’t move, my temper snaps. “Wake uuuuppp!” I yell right into her ear.

There’s no response.

Great, I’ve lost her again. Feeling in the pit of my stomach that days of loneliness and silence are looming before me, I give up and back away from the bed.

I try not to blame her. Shoot, if there weren't bills to pay, books to write, groceries to buy, and school to attend, I’d let myself get lost in there for a couple of days too. But somebody has to take care of things out here in the real world; somebody has to make sure we stay together.

I tuck the embroidered sheet tighter around Mom’s slender shoulders and bend to brush my lips on her forehead. Her shallow, measured breaths feel like a light wind blowing across my face. She doesn’t stir at my kiss. Her head lays unmoving on the pillow, her white eyelashes fanning themselves over two porcelain cheeks and long, golden hair framing her face like a halo.
I push myself off the bed, the soles of my sneakers making scuffling noises as I drag them across the soft, cream-colored carpet that covers the floor of Mom’s bedroom. It’s not as if I need to keep quiet though — a herd of wild elephants won’t wake her up now, not until she decides she wants to be awake.

And who knows how long that will be this time.

"Did you ever consider aborting me?" my thirteen year old asked me one day. I was always told that if a child asked a question it was because they were ready to hear the answer. Aidan had always been able to handle the responses I gave him to his inquiries when he got curious, which was often. However, I wasn't sure what to answer when my son got personal. The trust was, I had thought about getting an abortion the instant I found out that I was pregnant with him because I was only eighteen years old at the time, still in high school, and had been accepted into the university programme I wanted.
My handsome blond haired son stared at me with his brown eyes, patiently waiting for an answer. I didn't want to lie to him, but didn't know how to tell him that his father and I had not planned to have him and that abortion had been my first thought when I looked at my positive pregnancy test back in June of 2000. How could I look at my loving son in the eyes and tell him that I didn't originally jump for joy and then happily announce the news to the whole world? Obviously, I ended up changing my mind about getting an abortion and have absolutely no regrets about my decision. This is my true story of how my precious son came into the world and changed my life. I don't know what I would do without him. Being a mother is truly the most wonderful thing in the world.
