Whispers in The Dark by Maya Banks-Review

She came to him when he needed her the most

She came to him at his lowest point. The voice of an angel, a whisper in the dark. She's the only thing that gets Nathan Kelly through his captivity, the endless days of torture and the fear that he'll never return to his family. With her help, he's able to escape. But he isn't truly free, because now she's disappeared and he's left with an all-consuming emptiness as he struggles to pick up the pieces of his life. Did he imagine his angel? Or is she out there, needing his help as he'd once needed hers?

Now he rushes to save her before it's too late

Shea has been on the run from people who will stop at nothing to exploit her unique abilities. She never wanted to drag Nathan, who'd already suffered so much, into danger, but she doesn't have a choice so she reaches out to him for help. Finally face-to-face after having already formed a soul-deep bond in hell, their emotional connection is even more powerful than their telepathic one. Nathan refuses to consider ever letting her go again, but she worries they can never have a life free of the dangers that dog her every step. He'll protect her with his every breath, but can he convince her that they are meant to face these threats together

What can I say about book #4 in this series???
Fantastic, thrilling, I loved it!  
After having read the first 3 books in the KGI series, I was so looking forward to this one. I was not disappointed!
To be honest,when I first heard about it, I was unsure if I would like the "paranormal" twist in this story. But, again, after reading the first 3 (and loving them) I had to read this one too. It worked for me. I liked how it played out with the connection between Shea & Nathan.
One of the things I liked about this story/series is the connection the entire Kelly family has, the bantering between the brothers, the fight to make family first, even the way Mom & Dad fit into the story lines.
 I cannot wait for the next KGI book #5 Echos At Dawn ( Rio's story)

Please check out Whispers In The dark and the rest of the series too, if you like romantic suspense, hot guys, strong women, then you will love this series.

Happy Holidays!!!

Happy Holidays
Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy & Healthy New Year!!!!

Busy time of the year for all, i imagine. I know it's been crazy for me!
Not much time to read at all :(
But, more time to spend with the family, and that goes a long way.

For the past few weeks we have decorated the entire house-inside & out. The kids each got to decorate their own trees. A few years back I bought each of them a small 3 ft tree so they could each have one for their own rooms and add whatever they wanted to them.
I was secretly hoping they would then let Mom decorate the big tree all on her own. You see, I am OCD when it comes to decorating the tree. Ornaments, lights, etc have to be perfectly placed and co-ordinated or I end up having panic attacks (not really, but I try to convince the kids of this)
Every year I have a theme for my tree. usually it's a color theme. Back in 2009, our tree stood 9 ft tall,  it was in a stand that couldn't hold it and it fell over on Christmas eve. I lost many of my favorite ornaments that year. It has taken me 2 years but I have replaced what I could of those blue ornaments and now the tree has my favorite color theme again.


To celebrate my favorite theme this year I entered my tree into a contest being held by the Tree Farm where we order ours from every year.
YES! I did say order, every year for the past 10 years or so, we order our fralsam tree from
They cut our tree & within 24 hrs, box it up & send it to us via Fed Ex
(yup! Fed Ex delivers our tree)

So now I am campaigning for votes on my tree.
Please follow the link below and "like" my (Kerry Fraser-Pacious) tree??!
The contest ends at 5pm Friday 12/23.
Whomever gets the most "likes" wins a free tree next year!

Vote Here

What are some of your favorite Holiday traditions ?
Do you have any unusual traditions, like my kids having their own trees?
I hope everyone has  safe, healthy, happy holidays

Move Me by Emma Holly-review

Move Me by Emma Holly
Move Me is the latest novella in Emma Holly’s “Hidden” series. An erotic paranormal series featuring Werewolves, Wereseals, and now a Fae Prince. I have enjoyed this series very much and couldn’t wait to be able to read this next story.
BELLE’s eccentric Uncle Lucky has left her his spooky house in the tiny village of Kingaken. Twenty years ago, her little brother disappeared here, never to be heard from again. Returning to the place for the first time in so long resurrects more ghosts than she cares to face. When it also summons a sexy faerie, with an agenda of his own, Belle had best pray her luck is better than her sibling’s

This story contains hot sex, a mysterious missing brother, really hot sex, a ghost, a special Christmas surprise, and did I mention really really hot sex -  in a compact car?!
Belle comes back to her home town after her Uncle passes away and leaves her his house. The property is full of memories both good and bad. Not sure if she is going to stay or sell, Belle decides to hire a handyman to help fix the place up a bit. In walks ‘John’, not quite the curmudgeonly handyman who just lost his wife & kids, that Belle was expecting. But, with a body like that who cares if he’s good with a hammer!
 I am not big on writing out the whole story line in a review. I believe a review should be my opinion only. So, here it is….
I loved this latest story in the “Hidden” series. Although it is a part of a series, Move Me is a stand-alone story, reading the others is not required (but highly recommended) there seems to be some hints towards more in this series. I truly hope so! The storyline worked, the characters “gelled”, the sex scenes were hot, and there was a HEA of course. Check it out you won’t be disappointed!
