Review - Forever My Love/Solitary Soldier

Forever My Love: Forever My Love\Solitary Soldier (Bestselling Author Collection)Forever My Love: Forever My Love\Solitary Soldier by Heather Graham

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I normally love Heather Graham's books. This one was a little disappointing compared to the rest I have read. It was still a good storyline and I did like the characters and setting. It just seemed to be lacking something. So its rating is really about a 3.5.

However, the second story in this volume by Debra Webb I absolutely loved. This is the first story I have read by her and will not be the last. I was emotionally involved in the storyline and what happened to the characters. The story had plenty of details and action with well defined and interesting characters. Definitely a strong 4-4.5 rating on this one.

Review - Private

PrivatePrivate by James Patterson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Good story, but unsatisfying ending. I expected more twists out of a James Patterson book. Still well written as always with good characters.

One Week of Wolves

Vivian Arend is having One Week of Wolves on her blog from July 27 - August 3. She is getting ready for the release of Under the Northern Lights.


Coming August 3, 2010

A split second is all it takes to pull the trigger on destiny

Contains the following two novellas

Wolf Signs

Robyn’s deafness doesn’t stop her from taking the backcountry trip she’s been craving. Meeting a hot, ripped hunk-of-male at the Yukon cabin starts cravings of a different kind. And raises questions about wolves, mates, and duels to the death.

He wanted a quiet retreat before challenging for the pack Alpha position. Keil wasn’t planning on meeting his mate or discovering she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf to go along with her attitude…

Wolf Flight

Tad’s workaholism keeps his bush-pilot company in the air, and his inner werewolf in check. Letting it lose would mean compromising his human principles. Then Missy re-enters his life, and their chemistry is off the charts, pushing him closer to the step he’s not sure it’s safe to take.

A wolf pack is a dangerous place to have secrets, and Missy’s corrupt Alpha has sniffed out her carefully hidden Omega powers. Her only choice is to get to Tad, and hope like hell his untapped powers are strong enough to negate her own…

Warning: Contains nasty Alphas, secret Omegas, and yup—predestined mates. Includes dangerous use of sarcasm and hot wilderness nookie.

Review - Picture the Dead

Picture the Dead Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great story and illustrations. Very intriguing mystery with paranormal effects. I really enjoyed the writing and character development. I also enjoyed the look into the time period and beliefs emerging during and at the end of the way.
