The Summer of Reading: What YOU Should Be Reading!

We can finally say "Good Bye" to winter and "Hello" to summer and for all of us out there that love a great book, there are some great books as well as authors that you should be grabbing up.


Denyse Bridger has pulled out all the stops with her action adventure novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat.


Andrew Dahle is a career spook, with no messy emotional ties to complicate his life. He’s worked with the best, and despite himself, he’s about to discover that he’s got friends he really didn’t know he wanted.

A straight-forward operation to grab a defector before he can leave the country with a top secret project goes wildly awry, and forces Andrew to choose between saving the life of a colleague’s son or nailing his target. To his great surprise, he saves the young man’s life, and wakes up in a hospital.

Grateful, Richard MacAvoy, a retired agent with his own elite contacts and players, steps in when Dahle is injured saving his son. Desperate to complete his mission, Andrew reluctantly accepts the help MacAvoy offers, and in the process just might learn that alone isn’t always the best way to work, and friends might be worth the vulnerability he’s always shunned.

Kayden McLeod brings her Lust from her LOST Trilogy that is more than just a steamy and erotic read. Kayden McLeod takes her readers into a paranormal world with vampires with lusty appetites and mixes it with a strong and smart female lead. Lust will have you lusting for the next book.


Sara finds herself in a new world, an all-vampire community that at first seems like a picturesque scene of self-indulgent paradise, but soon learns that there’s an underbelly to this place of sun and sex. Having been a captive of a vampire’s insanity, she finds herself drawn towards two very compelling slaves, who reside on the island, raising many buried memories for her, and igniting a mental agony she can’t ignore for long. Ancient magic is afoot, presenting to her a whole new set of problems she’d never signed up for. Sara doesn’t know it quite yet, but fate has interceded and changed her destiny from being just another Hunter, into so much more. 

Jewel Quinlan is a new author for me and I simply adored her E-Book Stealing Cupid's Bow. If you're like me and love Greek Mythology then you will love her spin on the God of Love Eros aka Cupid. Jewel has a great affinity for writing paranormal romance and fantasy and after reading this book, you'll be as hooked as I am on Jewel Quinlan.


Recently heartbroken, Raine Daniels arrives home in Las Vegas, Nevada, to help with her parents’ fortieth anniversary party only to discover they are planning to separate as soon as the last guest walks out the door. Everything she thought she knew—her very foundation is rocked to the core.

When she learns that Alexander, the sexy stranger she’d sat next to on the plane, is really the god of love, Cupid—she asks for his help, but he declines. The god of love, now long divorced from Psyche and living on earth among mortals, no longer believes in love.

Raine decides to take matters into her own hands, even if a god tells her she’s wrong.  With her life falling apart around her and the solution seemingly within her reach she dares to try and make everything better. Unfortunately, she’s unprepared for the consequences of stealing Cupid’s bow.

Enter the world of the Breeds with Lora Leigh's Rule Breaker. "They were not born, they were created..." Lora Leigh has created a series that is truly a MUST READ with her Breed series. Her characters are genetically altered humans who have had their DNA spliced with animal breeds such as predatory large cats, wolves, coyotes, and then some. At first I scoffed at reading something that I thought would just be a drag to read but I'm so very glad that I did read the first Breed book because now I'm hooked and you will be too.


Lion Breed and enforcer Rule Breaker has just a few rules he doesn’t break. Not for anything. Not for anyone—like never have sex with a woman outside his own breed, especially a human woman. Especially someone too helpless, too fun loving and too full of life to ever be able to protect herself, let alone help him to protect her.

If the damned animal inside him insists on a mate, then why pick her? A woman who is an easy target and who can be used as a weapon against him at any time.

But what he suspects is mating heat may not be that at all. Just his animal instincts rioting, pacing, irritated whenever he's away from her.

Okay, he can handle that.

What ensues is a fiery affair that breaks all the rules of mating heat and will eventually endanger his mate with the very rules designed to protect the Breeds—for she’s possibly been working against them.

Now dear readers, who wouldn't want to get some of that animal magnetism going? Definitely a book that will have you taking a cold shower afterwards.

Cursed Awakening is a shifter romance novel, the first in a series by none other than myself, Nikki Noffsinger. Cursed Awakening has been re-released through Evolutionary Publishing and is an award winning P&E Critters Poll romance novel.


Ivy Morgan has re-invented herself and is looking forward to the future for the first time, in a very long time. Since fleeing for her life from an overzealous religious cult, she is able to be a modern woman that is gaining her independence; so taking up with a sexy stranger named Nyx is the last thing she needs. Or, is it?

Nyx Wahpeton can’t stop thinking about the young woman he’s met. It couldn’t have come at the worse possible time with the clans meeting and his family wrapped up in a centuries old war that’s nothing short of what horror movies are made from. He’s been a protector of his people and those that reside at the Reservation. There’s betrayal and evil at his front door; but, in his heart he knows Ivy is the one for him. She’s surrounded by secrets that he’s vowed to unlock, as well as her heart. However, can he keep her safe from his own secrets?

Paranormal Romance isn't quite your thing? Looking for something with a dead sexy cowboy in the wild west with a heroine that is sultry and looking for love amidst the tempest under the western sun? Denyse Bridger's Texas Heat delivers on a great story as well as an unconventional romance.


Chase Jordan is a man with half his life missing since his return from the war in Iraq. He arrives back in Texas, a drifter looking for home. When he arrives at the Double D ranch, the owners know him, even if he can’t remember them. Cheyenne’s been infatuated with Chase since her high school days, but Deke MacKenzie’s already made it clear to Chase that his kid sister is off limits.
