A MacTire/Silver romance. Ellie MacTire and her sister have had their Inn in Silver Town open for a while now. They have lived with one ghost that so far hasn’t bothered their guests. Until a piano is delivered to the Inn from the Silver brothers. 

Their GreatAunt Matilda always loved the piano, but it isn’t until they get the piano to the Inn that the GreatAunt makes her first appearance. Now Ellie and her sister, which help of the Silver brother, Brett, have to work quickly to see if they can get GreatAunt Matilda on her way. 

The only question is, why after so many years has Matilda decided to make herself know. Is there a mystery to her death or does she just really love her piano and wants to stay with it until eternity. 

In the meanwhile, Brett Silver knows that Ellie is her mate, but he realizes right away that Ellie is going to take a little time to convince. Are they dream mating, or is Ellie just really attracted to Brett. Once a wolf mates, it is for life, so Ellie really wants to be sure. 

Solid story that can be read alone or with other parts of the series, especially A Silver Wolf Christmas (Silver Town Wolf Book 5). I like the ghost story and the briefly added comic relief with the sister’s cousins, who have their own ghost hunting television show. 

Wooing a she-wolf isn't as easy as it looks in this bold paranormal romance from USA Today bestseller Terry Spear

In Silver Town, the secrets run deep...

Alpha werewolf Brett Silver has an ulterior motive when he donates a prized family heirloom to the Silver Town hotel. Ellie MacTire owns the place with her sisters, and he's out to get her attention.

Ellie is even more special than Brett knows. She's a wolf-shifter with a unique ability to commune with the dead. Ellie has been ostracized, so she protects herself and those she loves by revealing nothing-not even when strange and dangerous things begin to happen in Silver Town. And especially not to the devastatingly handsome and generous wolf who's determined to win her over...

Romance Book Review: Celia Kyle's The Werewolf Tycoon's Baby

The Werewolf Tycoon's Baby
Author: Celia Kyle
Series Connection: Howls Romance Book 1
Genre: Paranormal Werewolf Secret Baby Romance

Purchase Link: Amazon

❤ ❤ ❤ 

Celia Kyle takes a different track with The Werewolf Tycoon's Baby. In previous books by this author you see a lot of sass and circumstance, but in this book we see a more serious side. On a holiday vacation, full human Lissa meets a Greek tycoon and falls madly in love, she gives the man her virginity and oops, of course get pregnant. Learning their is a master plan in action to steal her baby from her and dispose of her, Lissa runs from the man she comes to find out is a werewolf. The start of the books finds Lissa caught by the werewolf tycoon, Galen, and dragged back to Greece. 

Galen, of course, has no idea why she ran, but Lissa doesn't realize this. While I like this book it runs pretty much like one would predict. I was hoping for some turns and twists. However, I did like the writing and hope that Celia will consider using this more serious approach in future books. This book is definitely worth a read.

She thinks he's after her child, but what he really wants is… her.

For Melissa Hill, a relaxing vacation to Greece involved not only sand, but billionaire Galen Liakos as well. Their passion burned hot and bright, but when their love was threatened and their differences became painfully clear, Melissa disappeared with a hastily scribbled note. 

Thank you for a wonderful vacation…

Galen Liakos is not merely a billionaire, he is the Alpha of the Liakos pack, and he is not one to be denied. Melissa is his mate, and he will have her with him once again. Non-negotiable. When he hunts her down, finding her heavily pregnant and struggling to survive, there is only one answer. 

Galen will have Melissa in Greece, in his den, with his ring on her finger, and his claiming bite on her shoulder!

Romance Book Review: Celia Kyle's Brukr

Book Title: Brukr 
Series Connection: Dragons of Preor Book 8
Author: Celia Kyle
Genre: Sci-fi/Alien Romance, Weredragon Romance 

Purchase Link: Amazon

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 

As a member of Prior quintet, Brukr is charged with protecting the women working to ensure that all human woman learn about the cure for Pol Mutation. One female in particular has been causing Brukr a lot of frustration. Hannah is a little too independent for Brukr’s taste, but Brukr takes his position seriously. 

Brukr has always been attracted to Hannah, but since he has not felt the “knowing” with Hannah how can she be his mate? He keeps his distance waiting to see if fate has gifted him her mate after she accepts the cure.

But Hannah has her secrets. She hasn’t told the Preor exactly who she is and has not intention of getting the cure. When her past catches up with her, will Brukr be able to keep her safe or will he lose her to another.

Taking place in an alternate earth where aliens have taken a place in the world to help the humans who have destroyed the planet, these weredragons are on a journey to find their fated mates. When they finally find their mates there is much to learn between the two male and female in every relationship. Often communication between the two the hardest obstacle to face. 

Hannah and Brukr are both running for their wounded pasts trying to make their way in the world. Both independent and wanting the best for each other. I liked both characters and those in the quintet that make up the background story. 

The ship’s computer, and the hacker “Liquid Knot”, are being further developed in this story, I suspect that there will be more about the hacker in a future story. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store in future books. 

He’s willing to lose his honor to claim her, but first he must save her.

The Preor emperor bestowed honors on warrior Brukr sen Zak’lu centuries ago—honors he does not deserve. Since then, he has fought to prove himself worthy of the emperor’s support. He works to protect and care for the females within Preor Tower no matter how difficult they make his task. One female constantly disregards orders and makes his duty nearly impossible. Hannah—with her flowing hair, teasing smiles, and generous curves—torments him with what he cannot have. He aches for her like no other, his dragon rages when he leaves her side, but without the Knowing stretching between them he cannot claim her. Or can he?

Genetic modifications have changed Hannah’s appearance, but they can’t change her past. To atone, she steps into the spotlight as a spokesperson for Cole-Daven and moves into Preor Tower. Every day she struggles to convince other humans to accept Cole-Daven’s treatment for Pol Mutation. She also fights her attraction to one specific alien Preor. They’re not mates, but everything in her craves the large, muscular, deliciously tempting dragon shifting warrior. 

With her exposure to the public, Hannah now has humans after her. Some want to possess her, others want to torture her, and many want to kill her. That is unacceptable to Brukr and he will tell them so… with his war blades.
