But that’s exactly where Kali meets the subject of what will surely be a shocking exposĂ©: her boss, Damion Ward, the casino’s arrogant and undeniably sexy CEO.

Watching Damion make his cold, calculating business maneuvers, Kali is positive she’s doing the right thing. But after Damion invites her to help him plan a Thanksgiving charity event, Kali begins to see another side of the man. And when she surrenders to the exhilarating tension that’s been simmering between them since day one, Kali becomes part of her own story, which she hopes will have a happy ending.

(Purgatory Series, Book #3)

He’s a man with a beast inside...

Connor Marruk never intended to work for the Seattle Para Unit. He’s not one of the good guys—he’s 

a real monster, and the beast he carries doesn’t exactly play nicely. But now he finds himself being 

blackmailed into a new assignment. It’s supposed to be his last gig. His mission? Protect the beautiful 

Chloe Quick. Keep her alive. Destroy her enemies. Easy enough...until he starts to fall for Chloe.

She just wants to escape.

Chloe is tired of being a prisoner. She wants to get away from her Para Unit guard and run fast into the 

night. So what if Connor is the sexiest guy she’s ever met? Chloe knows trouble when she sees it, and 

Connor is one big, dangerous package of trouble. But, when an obsessed werewolf begins stalking Chloe, 

she realizes that her paranormal bodyguard may just be the one man she needs the most.

Their attraction is primal.

Every moment that Chloe and Connor spend together increases their attraction. Chloe has never felt 

a need so strong or a desire so dark. The beast that Chloe carries inside has always been silent, but 

Connor is stirring up her animal instincts. And as the danger and desire begin to twist together, Chloe 

wonders just how far she’d be willing to go...in order to spend one more night in Connor’s arms.

 Excerpt


“Is that really how you say thanks? By trying to cut me open?”  He kept his voice low and he made sure to keep them in the shadows. The last thing he wanted was some do-gooder human coming around.
            Her breath panted out as she heaved in his hold. He didn’t let her go.
“I…I didn’t realize it was you.”
            Right. He could actually buy that. Seeing as how she kept having werewolves stalk her, she truly might have thought someone else was after her. 
            “It’s me,” he told her grimly. “You ran from me.
            He could see every beautiful detail of her face, even in the darkness. He had perfect vision—perfectly enhanced vision.  There was no missing the fear in her expression. He didn’t like Chloe’s fear.  Even when he was pissed at her, Connor didn’t want her to be afraid.
            “You know I won’t hurt you,” he said, his voice a low rasp.
            “Then let me go.”
            If only things were that simple.  “I can’t.”
            Her lips trembled.  Her lips were the first thing he’d noticed about her—they were full and red. The kind of lips that instantly made him think of sex.  Then he’d gotten caught in her eyes. No one should have eyes that blue.  Maybe it was because her hair was so dark, a perfect black, and, in contrast to that darkness, her eyes appeared to be such a bright, electric blue.
            Her face was heart-shaped, her cheekbones almost ridiculously high. She had a small nose and a slightly pointed chin.  Her skin was pale, probably because the Para Unit had been keeping her in various stages of isolation and she hadn’t exactly been free to roam in the outside world and soak up a bit of sunshine.        
            But that was what happened when you killed a man…and when you rose from the dead. You get monitored by the Para Unit.
Chloe Quick wasn’t supposed to be in front of him. She’d died a few weeks ago.  Not some near-death BS, either.  She’d been knifed in the heart. She’d died.
            Then she’d come back, thanks to the dark wish of a djinn.  Only now, the Para Unit didn’t exactly know what Chloe was.
            “I warned you not to escape,” he told her. The other werewolf had been right. Her scent was damn near intoxicating, and if he’d just been a werewolf, he probably would have been nearly mindless in his desire to claim her.
            But he wasn’t just a wolf, and that was why Eric Pate had given him guard duty with Chloe. Because I’m supposed to be able to control my baser impulses. But if that were truly the case, would he be holding her so carefully, his fingers sliding over her wrists, his body pushing ever closer to hers?

Viviana's Review:
I truly enjoyed reading "All I Want For Christmas Is You"! I loved the fact that the character that had the 'issue' was the heroine and that the hero was the one that was supportive and determined to keep them together! 

LOVED Patrick!! He tugged at your heart and made everyone with a significant other turn to theirs and say "Ahem!"Samantha broke your heart and made you want to give her a hug and be there for her. And adorable Natalie made you want to bake cookies and pour two glasses of milk and listen to her tell you about her day! 

An amazing series that continues to grab readers and pull them into the lives of these characters. Jessica Scott, the author, has a fantastic ability to make the characters real and have the readers fully engaged in what they are going through. The reader will befriend each characters and root for them until the very end. 


Rating: 4 Stars - LOVED IT

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the Author, Jessica Scott in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones

Seventh Grave and No Body
(Charley Davidson #7)
By Darynda Jones

Blurb: 

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancĂ© who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We’re doomed.
