Harvest Moon Release Week Tour and Giveaway With Lisa Kessler

Harvest Moon Banner 851 x 315

About the book – All it takes is ONE touch!

Dr. Jason Ayers unleashes all of his rage and his frustration through fists and brute force in an underground boxing ring. The werewolf may be the pack’s doctor, but he can’t even heal his coma-stricken father after the Nero Organization’s attack stopped his heart. And as his Pack brothers settle down around him, he still refuses to believe in the fairy tale notion that every wolf has a true mate…

In hiding and on the run, nurse Kilani Akamu is a loose end that Nero is desperate to tie up. She can’t afford to be attracted to a doctor—especially one as unexpectedly hot and complex as Jason. Yet the sexual sparks arcing between them are undeniable…and Kilani’s precognitive senses warn her that temptation is inevitable.

All it takes is one touch to send Jason’s wolf howling. But even if he could protect her from Nero, he can’t protect her from himself…

My Review:

I loved Harvest Moon. Each and every Moon book is just so incredible.

I was not sure how I was going to like Dr. Jason. He made an ass of himself with Nadya in Blood Moon. I was pretty upset with him, and I kind of got it… but I was not sure how a book with him as the romantic hero was going to be.

Wow. I mean full on wowsers, I really got into his story. His life is a bit of a dichotomy, and that makes it even more interesting. Kilani is spunky and I love how she sets his world atilt and on fire.

By the end, I was crying. I loved all the little connections and the surprise that gets revealed in this book as part of the overall Pack vs Nero story is pretty scary cool.

If you like a solid paranormal romance that is hot and thrilling with sweet and sad elements that wrings you dry… this is the book for you.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for a fair and unbiased review via netgalley.

Reviews By Peggy – Winning the Heiress’ Heart (The Emerald Quest Book 3) by Susanne Bellamy

Reviews By Peggy – Winning the Heiress’ Heart (The Emerald Quest Book 3) by Susanne Bellamy

***** – That’s right, Margaret gave this 5 Stars!
This story is set in the new state of Hawaii in 1960.  A story about 2 people who carry very heavy scars from their childhoods; scars that do not permit them to trust or to love.  Luc and Eva’s stories are woven around a beautiful Imperial Russian emerald necklace.
The author has done it again, she has created characters and a story that made me feel as if I were acquainted with the people and watching the story develop first hand.  Loved the story and people.
We received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is Margaret’s first review (hopefully of many) here at Cosmic Palate.  She specializes in getting to the point with short, sweet, and concise reviews.

**Spotlight Review** – Capturing The Pirate’s Heart by Annie Seaton

Once again Annie Seaton has delivered a real winner.

Capturing the Pirate's Heart

Madeleine’s family is gone and her Uncle has emptied their manor house and dismissed the servants prior to dragging her onto a ship bound for the Americas. Meanwhile she has the key to a family secret and hopes she can recover something once they hit New Orleans that will allow her to restore her family home and the people she loves to their positions. She takes drastic measures to escape the noxious man her Uncle would have her marry and finds herself at sea on a pirate ship with the
notorious pirate Captain Sébastien Leclerc…

Sébastien has his own noble secrets. This story follows them on their very different quests, with peril, friendship, pretending, and family dramas.

Their love develops despite the trust issues and multiple masquerades they both must play.

Once again Annie Seaton has delivered a real winner. She also manages to leave us wanting the next installment in this shared world.

I have read every single book by this author, and again this one is my new favorite.

The locale and era is different from my own but the feelings and motivations of her characters are relate-able and ultimately Annie manages to draw us into her world, only releasing us as we turn the last page… or rather a short time thereafter.

I also have my reviews up here and appreciate every like and helpful I get!:

Book Review of Brushing Off The Boss by Annie Seaton

Goshers it was GOOD!

Brushing Off The Boss
Annie Seaton
Contemporary Romance
***** – That is right, 5 STARS!

Brushing Off The Boss

This is book two in the Half Moon Bay series but it can be read as a stand alone.

Sienna and Jack are both artists but despite the attraction they felt a couple years ago when they met, they have not acted on it and have no idea quite how similar they are.

Sienna has been managing Jack’s gallery but had no idea and suddenly he’s there… heck, he’s everywhere.

Jack and Sienna fight it, but undeniably there is an attraction… too bad he’s her boss!

The characters are driven and believable; I adore Jack. Sienna on the cover… my first reaction was, “gosh, I want to feed her”. Jack has the same reaction.

The book also has frogs… the descriptions of the art make me itch… I want it!

Annie is absolutely one of my favorite authors and she has once again created a winner. I cannot wait for book 3 and to read Georgie’s story.
