Release Day - 'Four Crows' by Lily White #Giveaway



“You’ll have to forgive me, Darlin’, for all the unforgivable things I’m about to do…”

Loyalty is never easy – especially when you’re forced to choose between family and the man you would do anything to possess…

Born into a world that no child should endure, Magpie “Maggie” Crow is doted on by her loving father and over protective brothers. As much as she loves them, she fears them, especially when she learns secrets they've kept hidden.

Elliot McLaughlin joined the U.S. Marine Corps right out of high school to provide for his wife and son. He’d never intended to become a father so young, but was willing to do what it took to give his family everything they needed.

After Elliot’s family goes missing, he returns from war to an empty home. Obsessed with discovering who took his family, he investigates their disappearance and plots his revenge.

Passion brings Maggie and Elliot together. Obsession pushes them apart. As a bitter battle begins between Elliot and the Crows, Maggie’s heart hangs in the balance.

Review – ‘Berch’ by V. Vaughn


Raven Lynch left Winter Valley prepared to make it big on Wall Street. But five years later she’s returned for a high school reunion with nothing more than waitress change in her pocket. When she stumbles into Berch Lindholm her future brightens. The boy she’s always loved has turned into a man that makes her her heart flip, and he’s doing more than pulling her pigtails in return. Maybe coming home isn’t such a bad option after all.

Berch Lindholm has know Raven was his true mate since he was three years old. Biding his time until she was ready to know the truth has been his lifelong cross to bear. When she returns to Winter Valley Berch knows it’s time to act and claim what’s his. But fate has other ideas, and Berch must fight for the love of his life or lose her forever.


This is the last novella in the Winter Valley Wolves Vol 1 box set which features the Lindholm brothers.
Raven dreamed up becoming a financial investor on Wall Street but ended up waitressing tables. With a rented Prada purse and Louboutin heels, she shows up at her high school reunion and scratches the purse and breaks the heel of her shoe. She runs into her old childhood friend and crush, Berch, and he’s way grown up.
Berch is a werewolf who’s known Raven was his true mate since they were small children. They were inseparable as kids but grew apart in high school. Now that she’s returned for their high school reunion, he won’t let her go so easily again.
Neither will her old boyfriend who won’t take no for an answer.
I really liked the book but I think Raven accepted Berch’s werewolf story with too much calm and understanding. She didn’t really freak out as I think most women would. Instead, she took some time to adjust and came to terms with it a little too easily.
Well-written in Raven’s 1st POV, the story takes place in about a week and flowed very smoothly. We meet the next couple in the series, Ergan and Kayla, and their story is told in the Winter Valley Wolves Vol 2, the Wakefield brothers.

Review – ‘Bosun’ by V. Vaughn


Devon Reilly had a plan – run a successful hair salon and make enough money to move to Paris to find love. When Bosun Lindholm crashes into her she finds a man that turns her world upside down within days. Suddenly the need to leave Winter Valley disappears as she falls for someone close to home. But Bosun’s more than just a sexy auto-mechanic, and the truth he reveals spins her out of control. 

Bosun Lindholm used to burn through women faster than a tank of gas. Bored with his life he’d sworn off dating, until the day he runs into a fiery vixen that makes his engine purr. Devon is his true mate, and he’ll do anything to make her his wife. But this time he’s met his match, and he’ll need more than charm to win the woman of his dreams.


Devon owns a hair salon with dreams of going to Paris. All that changes when she gets into a car accident with a gorgeous mechanic. Things heat up between her and Bosun pretty fast. She has a long list of ex-boyfriends with broken hearts and she’s finally met her no-strings match in Bosun.
He’s the eldest werewolf of his brothers and though he loves women, he’s waiting to find his special true-mate before he settles down. He finds her unexpectedly in Devon, but she’s a human with a werewolf best friend. She just doesn’t know her friend’s a wolf.
I liked Bosun much more than I did his brother, Brindle, from book 1. Bosun is older and seems more mature than his younger brother. He handles his relationship with Devon responsibly and acts like a gentleman at all times, even though he can get pretty wild. I absolutely loved the banter between him and Devon, and the way he threw her off-guard. Very sweet.
This story takes place in about a week or so. Unlike the first book, the time line doesn’t jump around but it flows smoothly from scene to scene. It made for a much easier and pleasant read.
I’m not a big fan of 1st POV narrative but I like the author’s writing. It’s told strictly from Devon’s POV but I still felt as though I understood Bosun very well.
This is definitely a good story and I look forward to the next book in the Lindholm brothers boxed set (Winter Valley Wolves Vol 1).

Review – ‘Brindle’ by V. Vaughn


Katie Winslow made a life-altering decision the night of senior prom. But once she realized what she had become, Katie wanted nothing to do with her new state. Running off to college seemed like a good idea until mating season hit. Now the fever to reproduce is so great she can’t think straight. 

Brindle Lindholm has his true mate locked in forever. If only Katie would come to her senses and accept that they are meant to be together. Mating season has come, and he knows Katie has to be suffering in heat. Brindle is the only one who can satiate the need, and even though his heart will have to stand the rejection that is sure to follow, he knows he must go to her. When their coupling satisfies more than sexual need, it changes their future, forever. 


Katie and Brindle were high school sweethearts. He’s a werewolf and turned her into a wolf on prom night. Desperate to be normal again, she breaks up with him and runs away to college. During spring semester, it’s mating season and she’s in heat. Brindle shows up at her school to help her get through it but doesn’t expect her to accept him. She later reevaluates her choices and wants to rekindle their relationship. Problem is, he’s moved on to a new she-wolf and Katie is keeping a secret bound to hurt and anger Brindle to the extreme.
Though I think Katie stayed frazzled and stressed for too long, I understand why she ran away from the love of her life. She was scared and had no one to talk to, other than her mate who didn’t seem to understand why a human-turned-werewolf would be upset. C’mon, the girl’s 18/19 years old. Give her a break.
I didn’t much like Brindle. I did like that he gave her the time she needed to come to terms with what happened and who she is now, but he should’ve accepted her back into his life when she was finally ready. He still loved her and wanted her, but didn’t trust her. He slept with her but didn’t leave his girlfriend. This is totally unacceptable.
The time-period for this story takes place throughout the course of several months but the transitions from weeks to months confused me. In one chapter, Katie’s been home for her summer break for like three days and, in the next chapter, it’s fall time. There’s not much information about what happens off the page.
The whole story is very well-written and is told in Katie’s 1st person POV. I wish I could’ve seen more of Brindle and got inside his head to know his thoughts and feelings. I might’ve liked him better if I understood him. I downloaded this novella as part of the Lindholm brothers boxed set (Winter Valley Wolves Vol. 1). I liked this story overall and I’m anxious to read the other novellas in the series.

Release Day - 'Finding Mr. Wrong' by A. M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm






Here’s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.

The phrase “trust me” should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20. So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn’t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten—and not around my ankles. Before I knew what was happening, I'd signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn’t be so bad. I’ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble. She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me. Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.
