The Wild wolf's wife by Mandy Rosko









Back Cover

Jolie is her own wolf, and when the alpha decides on her behalf that she’s going to mate with someone she absolutely despises...
Nope..Not happening.

Unfortunately, as an omega in the pack, she doesn’t have the power to decline, but there’s one man who can help her. The rightful alpha of the pack, banished when he was a child and Jolie’s true mate.
Now she has to find him, find Liam, living in the wild and convince him to take his rightful place in the pack. 

Liam was a child when his parents were murdered and he was stripped of his rightful place in the pack. He could have moved on, he didn’t. He couldn’t bring himself to be far from his mate. Jolie didn’t need him then, but she needs him now, and heads will roll before he allows his woman to be thrust into the arms of another wolf.

Review 

Until I read Bitten by Kelley Armstrong, I was not into shape shifter’ stories , but after I decided to give them a chance. The Wild Wolf’s Wife is the second book, I read with werewolves and I want to keep reading that type of story. I liked the relationship between Liam and Jolie, even though I wished I could know them more. Jolie is a strong female character and it convince me to get through the book and Liam is the perfect rebel. 

The three stories all together is only 238 pages, it did not that long before I finished it. It’s a really good page turner with a lot of action, but I wish the author put more details. I could see the two main characters were in love, but because of the fast paced, I did not see the relation growing.

The author did a great job describing Dempsey, the wolf Jolie did not want to be with. Even though, he had his reasons, I never liked him and I think it was the perfect antagonist for the story. I couldn’t put the book down when I was reading the fight scenes between him and Liam. I was on team L all along and hopes that he would take his place back in the pack. 

If you like werewolves’ stories with lot of actions, I recommend you to read it. You won’t be disappointed.

Judgment by Jennifer Carole Lewis



Review 
This is the 4th book of the lalassu series and I have the feeling it’s getting darker in every book. Until now, the third book is my favorite because Cali and Joe are my favorite couple and I have to admit I would like to change my appearance when I want to. Even though every book is a stand alone, some characters are coming back especially in Book 4.
Now, the world knows about the Lalassu and I thought this is the book were the big action will start and I wasn’t disappointed. I like Bernie since book 1, she is so adorable (most of the time). Even though, she is sometime stubborn when she is fighting with her mom, she had good reasons. Martha is also a strong character who will do everything to protect her daughter, even though she is a little overprotective, I think she is an awesome mother and character. Lou and Lou are not an ordinary couple and it’s what I like about them. They did not fall in love in the first page and they took the time to build their trust even though the world around them was crashing.
I recommend this book to all the mothers who read this review and likes a good story with lot of actions.
Back cover 
Martha Anderson gave up everything to help her daughter : her career, her marriage, and her life. She devoted years to Bernie’s therapy and medication, only to discover the voices that her daughter heard were real: the voices of the dead. For the last year, they’ve been hiding in Ekurru, a remote sanctuary in the Alaskan wilderness, to keep Bernie safe from those who would exploit her abilities. But no everyone has been so lucky. Other lalassu have been sent to an isolated evaluation camp. It was supposed to be temporary, but no one has been coming back.
Lou Charging Bull, a skin-walker and one of the Guardians of Ekurru, agrees to go with Martha to the camp so he can protect her and Bernie, surprising himself and his family. But ever since Martha came to Ekurru, she has been on the mind of its strange and silent protector. Alone even in his isolated community, Lou sees a hint of a kindred spirit in Martha. He sees something extraordinary in the ordinary woman who chooses to stand overwhelming forces.
Together the two of them will discover things are far more dangerous in the camp than anyone could have imagined. With human experimentation, restless prisoners and murderous ghost, finding the space to grow might seem like a hopeless goal. But Martha and Lou will find strength in each other that they will never knew was possible.

Le petit chaperon rouge de Sonia Alain - Pour adulte averti






publié par les éditions AdA
Résumé 
 Une enfant s’enfuit dans les bois avec son loup pour échapper au meurtrier de sa grand-mère qui sont à sa poursuite.  Maintenant devenu adulte, le chaperon rouge est une séductrice avide de vengeance. Le sergent de police tente de retrouver le coupable derrière les meurtres des membres d’un groupe d’homme de mauvaise vie. Est-ce que La Louve assouvira sa vengeance ou paiera-t-elle de sa vie pour accomplir sa mission ?
Mon avis 
 J’ai lu tous les livres de Sonia Alain et ce roman sort vraiment du lot. Il cadre parfaitement avec la série des comtes interdits. C’est le premier tome de cette série que je lis et j’ai été surprise du tournant que ce comte prend. J’ai dû m’arrêter au fil de ma lecture pour chasser les images lugubres.  Je le recommande à tous ceux et celles qui sont à la recherche d’émotions fortes et qui aiment les histoires d’horreur. Les scènes de vengeance sont très bien décrites et le lecteur n’a qu’à fermer les yeux pour laisser son imagination vaguer.

Côte-Blanche - L'étranger d'outre-mer de Marie-Claude Charland



 

publié par les éditions AdA


Résumé 
Lauriane Bélisle est intriguée par la rumeur entourant le manoir abandonné Côte-Blanche. Même s’il est inhabité depuis 30 ans, la jeune fille tente de percer le mystère. Alors qu’elle entre dans l’âge adulte, elle rencontre William, le fils de l’ancien propriétaire. Lorsqu’il l’engage pour qu’elle soit la dame de compagnie de sa tante, Lauriane comprend que le manoir n’est plus sa seule source de fascination. 

Mon avis
Une romance historique comme j'aime, pleine de suspense. L’auteure décrit à la perfection les émotions de Lauriane à un point que le lecteur veut aussi percer le mystère du manoir et comprendre pourquoi il a été abandonné. Même si William est un personnage distant au début, j’ai appris à l’apprécier au fil de ma lecture. Si comme moi, vous aimez les romances qui se déroulent à une autre époque, je vous recommande cette série de quatre tomes. L’auteur sait utiliser les mots pour nous faire voyager et nous faire découvrir un nouvel univers.
