Act of Mercy Review

Act of Mercy by Mandy M. Roth
Psi Ops Book 1
Published March 3, 2014 by Raven Books
5 Earth Shattering Growls!!

"Every orphans dream is to have a family, sometimes they end up with more than they bargained for."


Synopsis -

PSI-Ops Series is a spin-off series to the Immortal Ops World.

Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and eliminate the target—Mercy Deluca. She’s more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong. She’s not the enemy. Far from it. Intel forgot to mention one vital piece of information—she’s Duke’s mate. And this immortal alpha werewolf doesn’t take kindly to her being in danger.






Review -

Once readers pick this book up they will not be able to put it down until the very end. Non-stop action from one page to the next that will leave you questioning the advances that have been made in the name of science, and just how far some may be wiling to go to further it along even more.

Dr. Mercy Deluca has never had much of a social life nor any type of real family. Hopping along from one foster home after the next growing up, the only thing she always had to rely up was her intelligence. So when she is offered a job within The Corporation, a biometric engineering research facility looking for ways to improve humanity, she's more than excited when offered an important role within their establishment. Not learning that the true nature of their research was by far anything but humane. In way too deep to simply just walk away, she puts in a call for help bringing down The Corporation. Problem is, the person who answers only offers to her is help with some anal probing.

Duke Marlow hates pretty much everything this day and age has to offer; the technology of it and airplanes most of all. Everything that is besides his job and his brothers-in-arms. But one phone call, or rather several irritating small ones, will turn his world upside down. One of his brothers, a werewolf named James, has been off the grid for a decade now. When intel comes in that is so encrypted their own techs can just barely decipher it, one part of the message comes through very loud and clear, James is being held captive. Duke and all of the other shifters know all to well what that usually means, he is being tortured. One vital piece of the intel also leaves them questioning the whether the sender is friend or foe. Duke's instincts tell him it is the latter, a feeling he must hold onto because his is screaming, MINE.

Mandy M. Roth creates a picture like quality within the minds eye. Every page is filled with wit and humor that will have readers laughing so loud anyone around them will be thinking they have lost their minds, fun, love, violence, diabolical masterminds, characters to captivate the readers heart and deeply heated love scenes that will leave steam coming off the page. A must read for any Paranormal Romance lover who loves the heat as well as the action.

Hand of Miriam Review

Hand of Miriam by Eva Gordon (ARC Review)
Self-Published December 6, 2013
A Bayla and the Golem Novel Book 1
4.5 Steaming Stars

"Goggles, Dirigibles and Vampires oh my! Eva Gordon creates a vivid world that Steampunk Lovers are sure to enjoy."

Synopsis -

On an archaeological expedition, Bayla Gideon, is widowed by a supernatural force and branded with the Hand of Miriam or Knowing Eye. Threatened by evil, she awakens the golem; a mythical man of clay, who protected the Jewish community over three centuries ago.

The golem, Gesher, is surprised. Freedom –by a beautiful, enchanting woman. His desire is to return to the celestial spheres and regain his status as an avenging angel. Yet, Bayla challenges his mind, body and soul. Would he risk his return to the heavens for her?

Besides, dealing with the otherkind, mad inventors and an unrelenting matchmaking aunt, Bayla is equally determined to resist her steamy attraction to the striking fallen angel.

Thrust into a malevolent war, which includes facing Jack the Ripper, they must resist the magnetic pull toward each other, while protecting the world from encroaching evil. (Goodreads)


Review -

Walk into the world of Victorian London where ships sail through the sky and goggles, corsets and stop watches are part of the everyday attire. Gordon truly knows her steam and the legends behind the creatures that go bump in the night. Though this novel is a rather lengthy one, each page is well worth the read. Hand of Miriam is a tale full of magic, mayhem, love, loyalty, betrayal and plenty of blood thirsty fiends.

This review is to be published on BTSeMag. The link will be posted here at a later date.
