Review: The Seeker

Book Review: The Seeker, by Elizabeth Hunter, 5 stars

✩✩


Summoned to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Rhys of Glast, Irin archivist and scribe of Istanbul, must convince a legendary Irina singer to trust him. His success could shift the balance of power all over the Irin world and give singers an important key to their past.
Meera didn’t call for Rhys’s help and she doesn’t need it. The scribe’s mission is to bring more martial magic into the Irin world while Meera has been looking for a path toward peace. She’s convinced that some other motive is at work, and his stubborn arrogance doesn’t pass for charm in her hallowed opinion.
Discovering ancient Irina magic should be something both scholars can agree on, but can these two rivals find any common ground? Neither Rhys nor Meera can ignore the simmering heat between them, but will attraction overcome the caution that has shaped both their lives?

Dr. E. Ridley Woodhouse is like no physician Ben Madison has ever met--she's a woman. As the newly elected sheriff of Frost Falls, Colorado, Ben is tasked with welcoming Ridley to the community. But while Ben might be tempted by the new doc's charms, getting the town to accept a big-city, female doctor is no easy feat. To earn their trust she'll have to prove herself and Ben determines to help her...even if she's the most stubborn woman he's ever met.
When the husband of one of Ridley's patients threatens her, forbidding Ridley from treating his wife or children, all of Ben's protective instincts kick in. Ridley has come to rely on Ben's steady presence and the delicious tension that simmers just below the surface of their easy friendship--but as much as she trusts that his warnings to steer clear of Jeremiah Salt are sincere, she's never been one to back down from a challenge and she refuses to abandon her patient.
But sticking to your guns can earn you trouble in the rough terrain of the Wild West and danger threatens Ridley from unexpected places, forcing Ben to confront his deepest fear in order to save the woman he loves.

 ✩✩

When Sam Pankhurst returns to Blue Penguin Bay after a five-year absence, his plan is to help his father run the family bakery until he can find someone else to take over. Then he’s going to return to his job as a pastry chef on a cruise liner, traveling around the world. Settling down in the bay and making the same old loaves and muffins until the day he dies isn’t his idea of a dream future.
Then he meets Ginger Cartwright. Feisty, confident, and as beautiful as the sub-tropical Northland bay that most people think of as paradise, she has a touch of vulnerability that makes him want to take her in his arms and protect her from the world, especially once he finds out about her troubled past.
Torn between desire, duty, and the ever-present urge to escape from his father’s constant disapproval, Sam finds himself unable to resist Ginger’s charms. But when the bay is hit by a tropical cyclone, everything is turned upside down. Will Sam stay and rebuild his old life? Or is it the perfect opportunity for him to move on?

Review: As Deep as the Ocean

Book Review: As Deep as the Ocean, be Serenity Woods, 4 stars

 ✩✩

She was only marrying him to save the vineyard...
It was just a contract, a way to access the money tied up in her inheritance. It didn’t mean anything.
She knew she mustn’t think about Mac's broad shoulders. About the intriguing tattoo that curled around his arm, how his muscular body gleamed when he worked in the warm sunshine, or how his ocean-blue eyes heated her from the inside out.
She mustn’t think about the stolen kiss, the way he’d slipped his arm around her waist to pull her against him. The soft touch of his lips on hers.
“It’ll be strictly business,” he repeated.
Yeah, right.
