Aden Lowe Author Spotlight




As an English major in college, I took a summer job as a proofreader for a small town newspaper, and got hooked on editing. I also worked my way through college training horses. After graduation, I landed a job for a small independent editing firm, and stayed there for 15 yrs. An old friend, Lucian, approached me to edit his special fiction project, and I got hooked.

When a legendary predator decides prize horses should be on his menu, Kate takes the advice of her neighbor ranchers and hires a big game hunter to track the mountain lion and remove the threat. The hunter arrives to take up the trail, but instead of the seasoned older man she expects, he's young and impossibly sexy.

Freshly back from deployment to Afghanistan as a special forces operative, Jakob needs to clear his head of the horrors of war. When his uncle is injured, Jakob steps in to fulfill the older man's commitment to hunt down a mountain lion on the other side of the state. The prospect of several days in the wilderness with only his horses and dogs for company sounds like the ideal opportunity. Except the infuriating female rancher insists on going along for the ride.

Excerpt:

Raven’s head tilted to the side and his eyes captured every part of me with finite detail. My breathing stilled and the incessant hunger that was building inside of me begged for release. I had fought the feeling for way too long and I refused to wait another second, minute, or day to experience what he had to offer.I wanted him to kiss me.
No. I needed him to kiss me.
Kiss me and take my lips captive.
My heart pumped faster, waiting anxiously as he moved closer to me.
A tender smile played on the edge of his lips. “Are you sure you want me to kiss you?”
I nodded, unable to speak as my eyes zeroed in on my target. His lips called to me, pulling me in until I breathed in all of his air.
His mouth pressed to mine and my eyes fluttered closed. He kissed me softly, touching my lips in a gentle motion. I melted when I felt the warmth of his hand caress the edge of my face. My lips parted and his tongue slid in effortlessly, causing every muscle in my body to relax. Our tongues swirled together and I devoured his sweet taste. The kiss was everything I’d ever dreamed of and more. Raven was a damn good kisser. If his lips could reduce me to a puddle of water, I could only imagine what the rest of his body could do to me.
He pulled away slowly. “Lexi?”
“Hmm?”
“Look at me.”
I didn’t want to let the feeling go and even though he had stopped kissing me, I was holding on to it for as long as I could. Slowly, I opened my eyes.
Holding my gaze, he said, “You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to kiss you.” He brushed his thumb across my lips and it took every bit of my strength to not barrel into him and beg that he take me.
I took a deep breath and counted backwards from five, pacing the beats of my heart. “I’ve been dreaming about you kissing me since the day I met you.”
For several seconds, we simply stared at each other. The hunger in his eyes knitted me tighter in his trap and I was truly helpless. If he was intuitive, I’m sure he knew what I wanted. And even though every hormone in my body screamed his name over and over, I refused to rush in to this. The last thing I wanted was to become another one of his hoes.

Jet Review

Jet (Marked Men, #2)Jet by Jay Crownover

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?


Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars

Another great installment to the Marked Men series! Words cannot express how much I totally love this series! This story of Jet and Ayden, was brilliant even though at times I felt I wanted to scream at Ayden for her actions but at the same time I could totally understand why she did what she did! Such an unlikely couple but so totally lovable at the same time! Another book in this series I literally couldn't put down!

With an ancient Vampire and a powerful Wolf by her side she just can't fail ... can she?

Book 2 in The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire Series by Ava K Michaels, another Hot Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy.



Claire's Review 4 of 5 Stars
This is quite a difficult review for me to write. Although I enjoyed the book and the story I felt I had trouble connecting with the characters, and felt Peri changed from being a girl who knew how to look after herself and a strong person to quite a weak individual who needed Gabe and Josef to look after her, and I felt she lost the appeal she had as a strong female heroine. I would have also loved to have seen more of other characters play more of a stronger role as they their presence in the story didn't really add to it.

However I did really enjoy the book and was sucked into Peri's story and the revenge she wanted to have with her father, as well as the growing relationships with Josef and Gabe. I will be interested to see what happens next after the ending of book 2.

Blog Tour: Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand





Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me.

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. 

Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has never needed Ven . . . until now.
When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?
