~Blurb~

Seven alpha wolves.

Not brothers by blood, but brothers by nature.

When Jem Stonehouse reunites with the Alpha's son, Sean, she has no idea just what she is taking on.

And the pack has no idea just how many lives will need to be taken, when they accept Jem into their fold and agree to protect her.

For the first time, books 1, 2 & 3 of The Holloway Pack are available in a single boxed set.

THE WOLF WITHIN

~Blurb~

Jem Stonehouse, a housewife with a neurotic husband bent on keeping her in line, dreams about werewolves in, what she believes to be, a bid to escape boredom.

Sean Holloway is a werewolf, living a charade within the human race, whose mind drifts to a bond he
shares with a woman he hasn't met-- at least, not in this lifetime.

Apart, the two are safe, but live unfulfilled lives.

Together, they'll become prey to rival packs, just as they have been for hundreds of years.

When their worlds collide, instinct takes over. Dreams become reality. Their renewed bond deepens.

To keep history from repeating itself, Sean must teach Jem about his heritage, convince her of her role, and win her love.

Can Jem accept her destiny before it's too late, or is her inner wolf buried too deep to save her future with Sean?

***Previously published as Darkness & Light***

BLUE MOON

~Blurb~

Someone is watching the Holloway Pack, and this time, the female isn't the target.

Life with a group of seven male werewolves worries Jem Stonehouse not one bit. She is engaged to the Alpha's son Sean Holloway after all. So what has Jem's territorial instincts on high alert?

The pack's latest addition. Both of them.

None of the men think there's a problem with the new girlfriends. Jem's intuition tells her otherwise--that and a nagging suspicion the new females aren't there to partake.

Jem believes they've joined in to take.

The question is ... What?

As the eve of the blue moon draws ever closer, Jem's running out of time to find the answer and outwit a thief of the worst possible kind.

A woman who believes she can't lose.

CAGED

~Blurb~

If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan's reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he's about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan's not sure he's strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.

Review: Pretty Reckless by Jane Anthony


Title: Pretty Reckless
Author: Jane Anthony
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017 Special Price: $0.99


Addiction: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.

Love: feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone)
Amazing how two words with vastly different definitions can have the same adverse effect on the spirit. I may be an addict, but I’m no longer foolhardy enough to be addicted to one man. No, this girl finds her comfort in thirst quenching liquid -- it dulls the pain caused by tainted love. 
True love may exist, but not for me.
Reckless: without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action
The guy I used to be is a distant memory. I left him in the past, vowing never to be that man again. But never say never, right? This time, I became him out of need. Need for her. She only let me in assuming I enjoyed being on the outside, at arm’s length. But the more I fight the desire brewing in my veins, the harder she is to resist.
Wrong for each other, but carved from the same stone.
He is my rock.
She is my air.
But rocks shatter, and if you get high enough, air becomes unbreathable.
No matter how good it might seem, getting wrapped up in each other is pretty reckless...







Without looking up, she lifts her feet, allows me to sit, and then places them over my lap. I watch her scan the small screen, the lighted background shining against her dark brown irises. Every few seconds, she swipes to the left. “What are you doing?”
“Just messing around online.” 
I lean in just in time to see her swipe again. “Are you on a dating site?” The contempt in my voice is hard to hide. Kat and I have spent every moment together, pretty much, since the day we met. The idea that she’ll eventually end up dating someone never crossed my mind. 
“It’s just Tinder.”
“You really feel like you’re ready to start dating again?” Panic sits on my heart, stabbing at the meshy membrane with a dull fork. The thought of her even looking at another man makes me wants to go on a jealous rampage. She’s been living in my house for the past five weeks, crawling into my bed when she can’t fall asleep. Kat’s mine. Whether she knows it or not. 
“Dating?” She pulls her hair down, and all of mine stand up. The faintest hint of juicy, ripened fruit wafts into my nostrils. Why couldn’t she smell like powder or flowers? Anything other than apples. Because of Kat, the mere thought of a Granny Smith stiffens my cock to an agonizing mass. If I don’t do something about this soon, I’m going to spend the rest of my life in analysis. “No. I’m just looking for a little release.” 
I raise an eyebrow, watching her feverish swiping continue. “You’re looking for a booty call.” 
Her gaze leaves her phone and locks on mine. “Not everyone’s a sex camel like you are, Chase. I can’t just store it in my lady humps and feed off it in tiny increments.” 
“I’m not a sex camel.” 
“You’re right. You’re more a like sexual terrorist. My coochie has been on the no-fly list since the day I met you, and right now, it just needs a little extra mileage. I’m not looking for anything more than that. So,” —she lifts her phone and waggles it back and forth— “Tinder.” 
The corners of my mouth turn down. I focus on the television, pretending to watch the Kardashians fight when really, I’m imagining what it would be like to drag Kat into my room caveman-style and lock her away. I’m a selfish prick. I can’t have her, but I don’t want anyone else to have her either. 
“Should I get my lips done?” From the corner of my eye, I see her pressing her fingertips against her puckered mouth as she watches the TV alongside me. “I want Khloe Kardashian lips.”
“Your lips are fine.” 
“Word to the wise, Chase. Never tell a woman she’s fine. Fine is the kiss of death.” 
I turn to look at her. Your lips are perfect. Two plump little pillows that would feel incredible sliding over my erection. “There’s not a thing about you I’d change.” 
“You’re biased because you’re my friend.” 
I just know what I like. “Scout’s honor.” 
She rolls her eyes and looks back down at her phone. Swipe . . . swipe . . . swipe . . . all to the left. Then one to the right. My heart sinks. 
“You right swiped.” 
“Ew, are you watching me? Creeper alert!” 
I hold out my hand. “Let me see.”
“No.” 
“Come on! Show me!” I reach out to grab the phone, but she jerks her arm back.
“No way, Jose!” That innocent giggle wraps itself around my heart and travels to my dick in an instant. My laugh. My girl. Fuck Tinder. 
Gobs of hysteric cackling erupt from her chest when I squeeze her knee with my fingers. She squirms and writhes, attempting to tear my grip from her leg. My free hand moves to her stomach. The phone falls to the floor and bounces across the carpet, long forgotten. 
When I shift to my knee in an attempt to avoid a karate kick to the face, her arms shoot up and grasp my shirt, pulling me down against her. Frantic breath beats against my lips, her eyes wild with passion and fire. 
Face to face, her body trembles. Raven strands of hair stick to her mouth. I run my fingers down her cheek and slip them behind her ear. Those lips. Those fucking amazing lips are so close to mine I can almost taste them.
So close . . .
The first taste is everything.





This is the first book by Jane Anthony that I've read, *hangs head in shame* But I had to start somewhere, right? What a book to start on!!! Where do I start? How can I do Pretty Reckless the justice it deserves?! Here goes…

The characters, the story, the emotion, all are every bit as real as our lives. The story is about friendship, love,  addiction and trying to overcome personal demons.
The whole story is heartfelt, emotional, raw & sometimes steamy. For Kat and Chase this is a serious and extremely difficult thing to do.

Can these two overcome their pasts, their demons & their problems? Are they too broken to be fixed?

The characters are completely fitting for this book. They are incredibly realistic in that they are far from being perfect, they have their flaws, they try to hide their imperfections. They make you feel. You feel for them, with them, but it’s not just warm happy feelings. You feel their hurt, anguish and fears too. At times you feel like  smacking them too or banging their heads together. I guess for me that makes them more realistic and easier to relate to.

The plot is structured and laid out well so that you are lead on a fact finding trail, given tidbits of information to help slowly piece together the bigger picture. Every scene leads seamlessly to the next.

Jane Anthony has done an amazing job of creating both Kat & Chase; and everyone else included in this story. Her writing clearly draws you into this world and holds you alongside the characters, even when the going gets tough and part of you wants to run away, the rest of you needs to stay and find out just what happens.

Pretty Reckless is jam packed full of emotion, it’ll make you cry and giggle, but more importantly it’ll make you feel & not forget what your feeling long after you close the book or turn off your kindle. For me personally this was an amazing point for me to discover Jane’s work & I will most definitely be picking up more of her books.

So what are you waiting for? If you want an emotional, heartfelt, realistic journey through life and some of its struggles; grab a copy of Pretty Reckless; a box of tissues; and come meet Chase & Kat! You won’t be disappointed!! :)

Excerpt
I heard noises: beeping, whispered voices. It was the clinical smell assaulting my nose that had me realise I wasn’t at home. I tried to open my eyes, but the light, such a bright light above me, burned my retinas. My body ached, my arm felt heavy as if weighed down.
I drifted back into sleep.
“Dani, can you hear me?”
“Dani, we need you to open your eyes, honey.”
Honey?
I felt a hand on my shoulder, it gently squeezed. Why couldn’t they leave me be? Did they not understand? The minute I opened my eyes, the minute I heard their words, I’d have to remember. I didn’t want to remember.
“Baby girl, it’s time to wake up now.” Not even my dad’s voice could chase the fear of waking up away.
The hand squeezed and eventually, fingertips pried one eyelid open. I moved my head away; it was an invasion. An assault on my desired numbness. I had no choice. I opened my eyes, squinting against the harsh lights above me and turned my head.
My dad sat on a chair beside me. He leant forwards, reached out, and smoothed the hair from my forehead. I winced at the sting as his fingers brushed over the stitches.
“Hey,” he said, gently.
A nurse stood beside him, busying herself with a clipboard and notes. She looked up and smiled softly at me. I didn’t return the smile.
I looked down at the arm that felt heavy and saw the white plaster cast, stretching from hand to elbow. Using my other hand, I placed it on my stomach. I knew.

…or will London fall?

~My Review~

This book was fab! I loved it, I was hooked from the very beginning. This is book 4 in The Hunter Series & I was dying to get my hands on this story.

The Serpent's Kiss is Asier's story. Asier has been present in the other books in this series; he's always been somewhat of a mysterious figure, not anymore!, It's his turn to be in the spotlight. Now we see Asier as we've never seen him before, we get up close & personal with him. Although I wouldn't mind getting closer to him!!! ;)

Jasmine is still trying to live with her problem; the vampire bite addiction. When the effects get too bad Twitch decides to take her to Asier's club in London. Jasmine knows that Asier's help will come at a price; but she knows that she doesn't have much choice.

Asier has a problem of his own; someone is selling drugs in his club & he has no idea who, how or what they are selling. He knows that the people who take it wind up dead or in a coma.

Jasmine & her team are also looking for the dealer/manufacturer, as luck would have it they end up working with Asier to find them. Asier states he wants to be paired with Jasmine!

This book certainly opens your eyes to Asier & his way of living! Seeing things from Asier's POV (as well as Jasmine's) helps us to learn & understand ha the Master Vampire works, we also find out what his Vampiria powers are, & how he uses then to his advantage.

Asier has a dark & dangerous side to him. In The Serpent's Kiss we see more into just how dangerous he can be. At the same time we see how loyal & protective he can be too.

Once again Claire launches us straight back into Jasmine's would & we are placed seamlessly back alongside Jasmine & her friends.

The world that Claire creates is fantastic. Her characters are realistic, likeable & believable. Claire draws you in effortlessly from the first page & holds your attention until the last page.

All that's left for me to say is if you haven't yet started this series, you really need to.

Claire where is book 5 woman?!?!?

~My Review~


Where the hell do I start?

I don’t think that there is any way that I can do this book the justice it deserves without giving too much away, but I’m going to try…

I had been warned that this book was emotional but I had no idea just how emotional it would make me feel.

This book is epic!

Letters To Lincoln is real, raw and has every emotion I can think of. The characters are real and easy to relate to. I felt as though I was there alongside Dani, I could feel every thought and emotion as though they were my own. Their interactions are seamless and very realistic; it’s as though they are real people that are in front of me not just characters in a book.

This book had my attention captured from the get go, I’m still struggling to read anything at the minute because of the hangover I’ve been left with!!
The storyline flows effortlessly. It’s clear to see the hard work and emotion that Ms. Podger has invested in this story.
The twists and turns will keep you guessing and wondering just where you’ll end up or be taken next on this emotional rollercoaster ride.

Ms. Podger’s writing has once again delivered a truly captivating story of loss, love, deception, family and friends. As Ms. Podger is a multi-genre I have given up trying to second guess what's in store. I just know that it will be good. Ms. Podger has managed to write another book that has a direct link to my heart strings. Letters To Lincoln really did cause me to take a step back and take a good hard think about life.

My recommendation: grab a copy of Letters To Lincoln, a glass of wine, box of chocolates, some tissues, a comfy seat and turn your phone to silent, then step into Dani’s world!

An amazing, emotional and epic story worthy of so much more than 5 stars.
