Liza's Review:

Leslie Kelly has been an auto-buy author for me from the moment I read her very first book. I love her sexy contemporary romances, but when she switched over to romantic suspense, I knew she had found her true voice. Add in the paranormal and thriller elements of her Extrasensory Agents series, and her books are golden.

I've wanted Derek's book pretty much from the moment he first appeared on the page. Each of the Extrasensory Agents have a different gift and Derek's is that he can see how people were murdered, and his talent is needed to help solve the case of missing boys at an exclusive academy in Georgia. Enter Dr. Kate Lincoln, who's brother Oliver has been missing from the same academy for six months, and Kate needs Derek's help to figure out what happened to him.

The suspense/thriller elements were very strong in Cold Image. I actually had to put it down a few time when reading late at night so I could sleep through the night. Ms. Kelly has a wonderfully twisted mind when it comes to writing suspense, and I love every moment of it. I also loved that with Cold Image, we had more romance than in some of the earlier books. The romance has always been a part of the story, but with Kate and Derek it was more prevalent. I really found myself falling for Derek and Kate as a couple. I liked the Kate seemed to get Derek in a way no one else really did. 

I'll put it out there right now. I usually have the who-done-it all figured out very early on in a book. I wasn't completely right in my guess this time, but I think it is because there were so many horrible people to pick from in this book. Seriously there were really only a couple people at the academy I didn't want to be eaten by the alligators in the swampy area.

Cold Image was a wonderful addition to the Extrasensory Agents series. I've been hooked on this series since I read the very first book and impatiently await the release of each new book in this series. I highly recommend Cold Image and the entire Extrasensory Agents series to readers who love paranormal romantic suspense books with thriller elements.

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.

What could be more joyous than a Kilcannon Christmas? But for Daniel Kilcannon, the man they call “The Dogfather,” this holiday season is anything but happy. It’s been three years since he’s lost his wife and though his family is growing – thanks to his matchmaking efforts – he still dreads the day his dearly departed wife used to love so much. Determined to make Christmas Eve festive and fun, he puts his sadness aside for the family and pretends everything is normal…until it’s not.

When a recently rescued puppy goes missing on Waterford Farm, all celebrations come to a halt. The entire family, from Gramma Finnie down to the youngest Kilcannon and their cousins, is enlisted on the search. Before they can continue the old Irish tradition of putting a candle in the window to welcome strangers, they must find little Jack Frost…and nothing short of a Christmas miracle can make that happen. 

The Dogfather Series
Daniel Kilcannon is known as "The Dogfather" for a reason. It's not just his renowned skills as a veterinarian, his tremendous love of dogs, or the fact that he has turned his homestead in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains into a world class dog training and rescue facility. Ask his six grown children who run Waterford Farm for him, and they'll tell you that their father's nickname is due to his uncanny ability to pull a few strings to get what he wants. And what he wants is for his four sons and two daughters to find the kind of life-changing love he had with his dearly departed wife, Annie. This old dog has a few new tricks...and he'll use them all to see his pack all settled into their happily ever afters!

Liza's Review:

The Dogfather series is one of my favorite ever from Roxanne St. Claire. It has family, sexy men, smart women, laugh out loud humor, as well as pulling so many other emotions from me. Santa Paws is Coming to Town is the perfect Christmas gift for fans of the series.

I love getting to spend time with Daniel Kilcannon, The Dogfather himself, and he gets lots of page time in Santa Paws is Coming to Town. I love how much he still loves and misses his wife Annie, even as he tries to hide it from his family. I love that his mom, Gramma Finnie calls him out at the very beginning about his sadness and his whole family works to help him find a reason to be happy this year. I both laughed and cried reading this short story and enjoyed each and every minute of my reading. We got to reconnect with the Kilcannon kids and grandkids and even got to meet Daniel's sister and her family.

Santa Paws is Coming to Town is a heartwarming story that will grab you from the very first page. I highly recommend reading the first 3 books in the series first to better understand the dynamics of the family, and promise you will be hooked from the very first book. Santa Paws is Coming to Town is another winner from Rocki and I can't wait to re-read it over the holidays.

Navy SEAL Wyatt Chandler loves the pulse-pounding, adrenaline-spiking tempo of Special Ops. But when a teammate dies in his arms during a mission gone wrong, he decides it’s time to hang up his combat boots before he becomes the next casualty. He can’t let his grandmother—the woman who raised him after his parents died—go through that kind of pain ever again.

But going home isn’t as easy as it sounds, and he has no idea what to do now that he’s no longer HALO-jumping into enemy territory. When he gets a chance to use his skills and play bodyguard to an heiress, he takes the assignment. How hard can it be to babysit one spoiled blonde?

Reality TV star Paige Spencer never expected to find herself bundled off to her dad’s fishing retreat in Nowheresville, USA, and put into the care of a hot bodyguard with a chip on his shoulder. But someone is threatening her life—and the threats are escalating. Getting away from Seattle until the police catch her stalker is the only sensible option.

Paige hates all things small-town and charming, but Eagle’s Ridge has a way of growing on a person. And then there’s Wyatt, the sexy, growly, utterly delicious protector who makes her heart pound and her pulse skip with every hard-eyed look. And when he finally lets down his guard and kisses her? Mercy.

Still, the road to true love has never been easy—especially when a crazed fan has plans of his own.

7 Brides for 7 Soldiers #4
Review copy provided by publisher

Liza's Review:

Wyatt is the 4th book in the multi-author series 7 Brides for 7 Soldiers. Each of the 7 friends is in a branch of the military, and Wyatt is a Navy SEAL who has come home to help take care of his grandmother. Wyatt was another wonderful addition to the multi-author series.

I loved Wyatt immediately and the more time he spent with Paige, the more I liked her character. I really felt like she had gotten a bad rap for being on a reality TV show, and she pretty much hid behind her TV persona too often. I loved the more time she was around Wyatt, the more the real Paige came out. I loved the attraction between Wyatt and Paige and had to laugh at him trying to fight said attraction. They had such smoking hot chemistry; I knew they wouldn't last long before they made love. I seriously ended up loving them as a couple. 

The stalker angle was extremely well done. Even once they discovered the identity of the stalker, I knew Wyatt and Paige belonged together. I loved how protective Wyatt was of everyone he loved from his grandmother to his friends to Paige. 

Ms. Harris once again gives her readers another fabulous romantic suspense with the perfect balance between romance and suspense with Wyatt
