Breaking The Rules
Published March 2011
Eden and Izzy once fell in love with each other, and even though they are married, are on the brink of a divorce. Since Izzy only married Eden because she was pregnant and he wanted to do the right thing, and then she miscarried and they serparated and lost in touch…until now…until a danger threatens the Gillman family, that would only bring Eden and Izzy closer together. Then we have Danny and Jenn, who fell in love in the previous books, but Jenn felt like they needed more than a few days to realize they love each other, however when Danny gets injured in a bomb blast, she starts to realize what is really important in life…and she knows that her life would never be fully complete without Danny in her life.
The Heroes (Danny Gillman and Izzy Zinella )
Danny and Izzy have really been mortal enemies ever since they met each other…Danny left his family when he was seventeen to join the Navy, and even though he has had some involvement he starts to come to the fact that he should have been there for Eden and his younger brother, who are both now in deep trouble, and only with him and Izzy’s help will they be able to help them against a threat they don’t see coming until its almost too late.
The Heroines (Jenn and Eden)
Jenn, even though she is recovering from a troubling childhood, she has overcome it and has learned to live a normal life, however she never thought she would be good enough for Danny. Eden, has suffered much in her young life, and no one apart from Ben her younger brother has ever really been on her side. Now with Ben’s life in danger, these two couples will band together to fight the evil that threatens them…
Breaking The Rules would have to be one of my favorite books in the series so far!!! Ever since I read the lates one Hot Pursuit, we see the romance that blossoms between Jenn and Danny, and ever since then I have been aching for their continued story…so I was having such fun reading their love story….then Izzy and Eden….oh Izzy has always made me laugh as we have seen him throughout the series and I was glad and hoping to see these two end up together..finally… they sure have had a rough time of it. However combined with two remarkable love stories that we see in this novel, there is fast paced action and so much intrigue and suspense it just might blow you away. I know it took everything I had just to sit back and listen to this story and not skip ahead, I felt like I was at the edge of my seat 90 percent of the time. But I was ended up feeling fully satisfied in the end…A Intense Read that I Just Fell In Love With!!!!! A Jewel! (FYI- For those of you who haven’t read this series and wonder if you can read it out of order…you can but I wouldn’t recommend it…I would recommend you read this series in order if you can, that way you won’t feel confused at times. )

Erin Morgan, was shocked to see four dead people in work that day.

Touch A Dark Wolf, is the first in the Shadowmen Series, and the first book that I have read from this author. I didn’t know from reading the blurb if I would really get into this book…however I really did. Although it was by far from my favorite shape shifter romance…it definitely had the suspense and fast paced action that I thoroughly enjoy in a good romance every now and then. It definitely reeks of enough danger to send one self careening over the edge, Such heart stopping moments up and down throughout the story. I sometimes felt like I was on a rollercoaster with this one….but in a good way. Its been a while since I have read a book with such intense emotion portrayed. I admit I was close to tears toward the end, not really knowing what would happen, but it ended on a happy note and I was fully satisfied! Definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

If You Desire is the second in the MacCarrick trilogy, and by far my favorite of the series. When I first started reading this book, I kept hoping that it would be as good as I had heard about, but after read the first in the series and being disappointed I didn’t want to get my hopes too high. However, I think I just fell in lust/love with If You Desire. I would have to say the best of the series!!! I loved the story of this series…where you have two people who have fallen in love with each other before but both ended up hurt, but find themselves in close proximity to each other again and this time the love they share is only magnified. There were so hilarious moments in this book…that had me unseated with laughter. The sensuality side of this story, was sexy and hott but not too much that turned me off…it was just perfect in my estimation. There was such delicious material in this book that it will leave you only earning for more!! A Tantalizing Read!!!!
