Sami's Review:


Arturo has had a hard life not because he is lacking in money but because he is the head of the Cartel. Constantly being at war with one faction or another and being betrayed will make a man wary. Solitaire has also been down a tough road. She manages to hold her own but this time she just may be in over her head. When Arturo sees Solitaire he is astounded by her beauty. An accident causes memory loss for Solitaire and all she wants now is to survive this latest mess and go on with her life. If you are looking for a book filled with suspense, drama, love kink and betrayal you MUST read this book.

Excerpt:


“You’re the big boss.” She looked up at me and smiled. She was dressed in a cheap cotton shirt and jeans that should be on the burn pile, but that smile was pure gold. This girl had guts.
 
“I told José he was a fool to try and cheat you,” she said. “I wasn’t part of it, and I don’t work for you. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

She’d heard about our policy protecting bystanders. Of course it doesn’t apply to anyone whose eyewitness testimony can put me in a courtroom. Well, try to put me in a courtroom. In Mexico nobody would dare accuse me, and I’ve enough resources in England to guarantee a police investigation would come to nothing, but it’s not my style to take chances. Solitaire would be going into the ground along with Escamilla.

“Mr Vazquez,” Solitaire gave me her best smile. “I don’t expect something for nothing.” She dropped her voice. “You’d like me,” she whispered. “I’ve heard about you. We’re the same.” “Are we?”

“Yes, I can make you very happy.” She brushed my hand over her cheek and then kissed my palm. “I’m a very good girl,” she said quietly. “Unless you prefer a naughty one?” She sucked my thumb, and I was instantly rock hard.

It has been days since Lily killed the vampire responsible for her brutal attack. Now she and Wolf have been summoned by the Society to answer for her actions. Standing before the Regent, she learns she has tipped the human and supernatural scales. A new vampire is required to restore balance.

When she hears the penalty for her crime, Wolf protectively steps in and accepts a dangerous task in exchange for her freedom. He must find the rogue vampire who has been slaughtering citizens in their territory or risk losing Lily to the Society. And he only has days to do it.

As the night of reckoning fast approaches, Lily finds an unlikely advocate in a centuries-old, seductive vampire named Athene who gives her an ominous warning.

About Author
I'm addicted to writing. I've written 26 romance novels in 25 years, but I just started releasing them in May 2014 because frankly there are some things inside them I wasn't sure I wanted my daughters to read. The nest is empty, my girls all grown, so now I'm letting loose. I believe in the adage; Don't judge a book by it's cover! Definitely the case with The Girl on the Half Shell. Perfect looking lives are not perfect. We all have our own challenges to overcome! It's a theme in the books I've written and I cover a wide range of contemporary issues in stories ranging from raw and steamy, to gut wrenching, to happy happily ever after. My first release The Girl on the Half Shell is my most intense novel, the first in the Half Shell Series and the one I had to wait until I had no kids at home to release. My Perfect Forever Series is definitely happy happily ever after! The first in this line of books was released June 2014 with The Signature. My soon to be released first novella of the Encounters books, are short, steamy, and fun reads. And in September I'm starting to release my first in The Deverell Series with When the Perfect Comes, a fast paced, plot twisting historical! I've been in love with the Romance novel since I read my first Kathleen Woodiwiss book, and it seems to me that beyond a steamy fun read, a good romance novel is so much more: it's women empowering women. We share. We learn. So about me? I'm as eclectic as my books. A mom. A business owner. A writer of romance. An advocate for clean air and the environment. A wife and an animal lover. The best way to explain me is that once in a talent contest I played classical piano followed by a chopsticks duet with my toes. That pretty much sums up how I've lived my life! Author Links

Sami's Review:
Ella Martin is ready for a fresh start. A new beginning that will erase the past 16 years of marriage to an unfaithful and verbally abusive douche. Her friend Renatta offers her just that when she asks Ella to move to Seattle and help her with her photography business.  Xavier Hart has suffered more loss in the last few years than most will in a lifetime. Being a wealthy man he has to guard his heart against women who only want him for his money or social status. Ella is a breath of fresh air for him the moment he sees her on the plane he knows he has to see her again. Ella has never been so pulled towards another human being in her life. Just having finalized her divorce Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome is a shock to her libido and one she is not sure she is ready for. Xavier is determined to get to know Ella and breach the walls she has built around her heart. The relationship between these two is explosive. Tempers flare, psychos come out of the wood work trying to break these two apart. Will their new found feelings survive all that is thrown at them?



New Beginnings:

Ella Martin, having overcome a devastating divorce, quickly found herself caught-up in a whirlwind romance with Xavier Hart, a charismatic and successful CEO of an investment firm. 
As their romance quickly blossoms towards a more serious commitment, Ella tries to come to terms with her fear of getting hurt. While Ella struggles to realize if her love for Xavier is greater than her fear of another husband betraying her, her ex-husband, Stephen, is still deviously lurking in the background. 
When Stephen gets involved with someone else, Xavier is not convinced that he no longer poses a danger to Ella. Xavier’s struggle with his need to keep Ella safe only intensifies. 
When strange events surrounding Ella start to take place, Xavier believes his suspicions of Stephen are warranted, and he will do whatever it takes to keep Ella safe. But is Stephen really the one who is conspiring against them or is there another who is working maliciously to destroy them? The love story of Ella and Xavier that began in Starting Over concludes in New Beginnings.

Sami's Review:
Ella and Xavier have what can only be called a rollercoaster of a relationship as far as emotions go. Both with intense jealousy issues cause this whirlwind relationship to be a wild ride. With ex’s coming out of the wood work trying to destroy their happiness they encounter so many trials and tribulations it’s not even funny. After the loss of their first child at what both consider the hands of Ella’s ex Stephen Xavier goes into full on protector mode. The last thing Xavier wants is for a repeat of the past to happen. While Xavier is focused on trying to prove the it is Stephen who is after them they both fail to see who their true enemy is. Will they figure it out in time? Or will this unforeseen foe be the destruction of all the happiness they have achieved?
