Spine Tingling Suspense at its best!

Make room for Leslie Tentler, Romantic Suspense has found a new voice. In a spine tingling conclusion to her Chasing Evil trilogy Ms. Tentler takes readers on a nonstop roller coaster ride that begins with the first sentence and ends with the very last page.
When Mia Hale turns up bloody and disoriented on a Florida beach, the puzzle pieces begin to lock into place for FBI agent Eric McFarlane who has been called down to Florida to work a murder case that has the same ear marks of a case that he's been chasing for years.
He is called "The Collector" for his habit of claiming souvenirs from his victims. Following a three year break it appears that the Collector has resurfaced along the banks of the Jacksonville Beach. For McFarlane catching this sadistic mad man is personal. Mia remembers nothing of her ordeal, but agrees to help McFarlane buy taking part in an experimental hypnotism project in an attempt to regain those lost memories. With a growing attraction between Hale and McFarlane the suspense becomes that much more intense as they battle a ticking clock before this madman can collect anymore victims. Ms. Tentler creates the perfect mix of suspense and romance in this well rounded mystery. With her strong writing style this author kept me turning the pages for hours. I will say that this book is much more graphic than the previous two in the series but it does not detract from the enjoyment. If you love a little spine tingles with your romance then this is the book for you. I wish there was a higher rating scale for books than 1-5 because this book just rocked. Be sure to start this series from the beginning starting with Midnight Caller, and Fear of Midnight (book 2). These books are available where ever books are sold!

Wow There is Magic in the North!

Wow! If there is one new paranormal romance to read this year North of Need is that book. North of Need is the true definition of romance. It has passion, and heart, it will make you laugh and make you cry. And it doesn't lack in the steam department either.
North of Need, the first book in The Hearts of the Anemoi series tells the story of Owen and Megan. Owen is one of the gods of winter, and Megan is a grieving widow, in fact it is her tears bring Owen to life, however he only has a small window of time to earn her love and trust or he will melt away. Megan has been a widow for two years, and she still mourns the loss of her late husband, John who died tragically and unexpectedly. As Megan begins falling for Owen, her fear of loving and losing is pushed to the forefront. Laura Kaye has managed to write a paranormal romance that is fresh and heartfelt. North of Need makes you want to believe in magic.
I know, I for one am looking forward to the following books in this series. It is my hope that the heart that North of Need flows into each of the follow ups.(Available whereever books are sold)

What a Wonderful Read! Sharon Sala's a Field of Poppies!

To start things off I'd like to offer up what I believe is one of the best books written today.
I was once told by Sharon that Cat Dupree was her all time favorite character and to this point I had to agree with her. However she has so completely outdone Cat Dupree in this novel that I can’t see any character ever comparing.
Sharon Sala’s A Field of Poppies reminded me of the very reasons why I fell in love with the romance genre.  This book has more heart written into each word than any other book I’ve read in years. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh, and it lends meaning to forgiveness. Ms. Sala takes readers on a journey with Poppy Sadler following the death of her mother, and the brutal murder of her father. The book itself is full of the kind of plot twists expected from Ms. Sala, what is unexpected is the sheer emotional journey she takes with Poppy. It is a simply wonderful journey of love and forgiveness. This book was almost not published because the normal places couldn’t see where it would fit into today’s current market, oh how wrong they were. This book is exactly what the current market needs! 
I loved everything this book had to offer, from the strong characters like Poppy and Justin, to the outright nutcase in Prophet Jones. If there is one book you buy this year make it A Field of Poppies as it is sure not to disappoint! Thank you Ms. Sala for making sure the world has it’s chance to read this stunning piece of work. (5 Stars,Available at, Barnes and and Indiebound booksellers everywhere)
