My Review: 

The Hunter's Realm
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Kellie fled from an abusive relationship with infant twins and for four years has been doing what she needs to keep them safe. She settles in a new home and finds that the man next door is super hot and has her experiencing feelings she hasn't considered in years. Elliot is a hunter from another realm who is attempting to protect areas where the boundaries that divide the magic realm from the rest of the world are compromised. He is quickly drawn to Kellie and her children, and as his relationship with his new neighbors progresses, he comes to find that the man the are running from is the same dangerous man he is trying to capture. 

This is a nice paranormal romance that I read straight through once I started it. I enjoyed Kellie and her twins quite a bit, and it would have been impossible not to enjoy Elliot. He is pretty much perfect. Sexy, tough, and incredibly giving. Whoo! Watching these characters' relationships develop and their situations intertwine was very interesting. It is a quick read, but I found it engaging and I would read more by this author in the future. 3.5 stars.

Excerpt 1

Pulling his hood down over his face in the shadow, the keen hunter watched with rapacious eyes, the predatory animal in him taking over as his prey hovered over the open dumpster. With a quick look around and blonde curls jiggling, the little mite dove into the giant trash for something, probably a snack since the pixies did like to eat at this time of night.Now time to earn his keep.

He stood up silently and prowled forward to peer over the edge of the bin. His prey, oblivious to his presence, nibbled on a discarded French fry with great gusto. With a swoop, the net came down, the low whistle of its flight not enough warning. With a scoop and a flick, he trapped the pixie within its silken threads. The little creature went into panic mode, its little body thrashing and twisting inside the net, its squeaky words coming so fast they were incomprehensible.

“Enough!” snapped Elliot, almost immediately feeling contrite. He’d have fought, too, if someone had trapped him like a bug.

The pixie settled down and peered up at him with big jewel-like eyes, the reproach in them making the hunter uncomfortable.
“Don’t look at me like that. You know you’re not allowed to cross the border.” The pixie’s eyes glistened. Elliot felt guilt poking him hard. After all, he happened to love greasy fries and burgers too and he could understand the temptation.

“Don’t do that,” he said, sighing. Why do I feel like such a bully?
Squashing his guilt, he reminded himself of the job at hand. “You know you’ve got to go back.” Pulling out a small jar with holes in the lid, he lifted the net up and showed it to the pixie.
Teaser 1 
"What’s this?" asked Rea, holding up a wrench he'd pilfered from the toolbox.

"A wrench, it's for tightening things."
"What’s this?" Rea asked again, holding up something Kellie had never seen.

"It’s called a level which is made so things aren't tilting."

And on it went, he even let the kids help him tighten bolts, guiding their hands to turn the wrench and getting them to hand him tools as he worked. The kids had taken to him like a fish to water, and Kellie watched, amazed. They didn't even squabble once, a miracle in its own right.

Kellie knew she should be getting more done, but found herself mesmerized into watching him, instead. Like a new breed of animal she'd never seen, she studied him, trying to understand what made him tick, but she watched him all morning and came no closer to understanding him.


About the Author

A little about me is I am a person who loves life and living in the moment. I have found a deep passion in my life in writing romance and erotica novels as much as I enjoy reading them too. I started writing as a hobby and since have been inspired to publish what I have. My heroines are always strong women that can stand up for themselves.

My favorite genre to write is Paranormal, but I am delving into other genres as well. My passion is to express how I feel and see romance, sex, and creatures of the unknown come alive on the pages of my books. Immortal highlanders, witches, vampires, Lycans, warlocks and many more, some of my work is inspired by daydreaming , but mostly by a wild imagination.  I am now exploring, Contemporary, Fantasy, Historical and Western Romance, as well as Erotica. I am also thinking of doing a few YA books too.

My first book was published on May 7, 2012, ever since Blood Ties (Wicked Blood Series #1) hit the shelves it has been great and a dream come true. Taking the characters that are in my head and bringing life to them is accelerating. I am staying very busy these days as I am working on three more books for this year. One is another in the Wicked Blood Series and another from my Marshal’s Series and a final one with my Co-Author J.L.Raven. 

Coming June 20,2014 I will be releasing another novel, this is a fantasy romance entitled, “The Hunter’s Realm” published by BookRhythm.

I could not have gotten this far without the Lord's help and several friends and family.
