Instinctive by Cathryn Fox
Jaclyn Vasenty has moved to the small town of Serene so she can clean up her bad girl ways. She also is out to prove to her father’s board of directors of the family cosmetic company that she is the right person to take over the company. Serene isn’t quite what Jaclyn thought it was and she is finding it harder than ever to keep her desires in check. Now if she could just determine what is going on in this strange town it might help or it just might get her into a lot of trouble.
Slyck is a shape shifting panther that is just one of the paranormals that live in the town of Serene. Serene is actually the home of shape shifters, demons, vampires and witches and none of them like outsiders in their little town. Slyck feels that there is something very different about Jaclyn and he is starting to break the rules just to be with her and find out the truth about her. The one thing he never expected was what he is starting to feel for her and what is starting to look like is the truth about Jaclyn.
Things are brewing in the town and if Jaclyn wants to get out of town alive she is going to have to decide who to trust. Her instincts are telling her to trust Slyck. It is also starting to look like he is the only one that will be able to help her get out of town alive. Now they are going to have to trust each other and come up with a plan that will get them out of town. That just might be a lot easier said than done.
This story has a different take on paranormals that makes this one hard to put down. It is interesting to watch Jaclyn discover the truth about herself and her personal history and to see how she handles the things thrown her way. As you read you are constantly trying to determine what each character is up to and what will happen next. This makes for a very interesting read. The story moves along very smoothly and keeps your attention until the very end.
I give this one 4 red roses.

THE RAKE AND THE REDHEAD
PUBLISHED BY ROBERT HALE LONDON.
Dashing to a village near Oxford, to try and help her dearest cousin Jane, the beautiful Miss Hyacinthe Dancy still held Jane’s letter in her hand.
She felt Tom the coachman slowing down, and peeping from the carriage window she saw they were about to go into the yard of The Black Lion Inn where they were to spend the night. It looked a superior inn and she was pleased to get out of the coach, tomorrow they would reach Jane’s cottage and then the battle would begin. Hyacinthe had no intention of letting the Lord of the Manor, whoever he was; tear down a whole village just to improve the view from his house.
Hyacinthe was travelling with her companion and maid Forsdick who was the most respectable person one would ever wish to meet mused Hyacinthe and without whom, her Aunt Bel would not have allowed Hyacinthe to speed to Jane, and try to rescue her cottage, and indeed the whole village.
While in the Inn yard a gentleman lazily strode across to speak to the Inn Keeper, who at first thought that Miss Dancy was not quite the type of person he wished to stay at his Inn. But as she was soon joined by Forsdick and Her coachman he quickly saw that he had been mistaken. The Gentleman turned to speak to Hyacinthe and she recognized the heartbreakingly handsome, but scandalous rake, Lord Norwood, who she had met previously in London and who had almost ignored her, then. She still smarted from his obvious lack of interest in her, and the greeting she gave him was very cool. Hyacinthe hoped that she would not have to meet him again for a very long time.
When she finally reached Jane’s Cottage, she decided it was as beautiful as she remembered and it strengthened her determination to save it from the heartless Lord of the Manor. It was not only Jane who would be forced to leave her home, but all of the other people who lived in the pretty village of Worthington would also so have to leave. True the lord was building a new village just a short way from Worthington, but it could not be the same, as a home you had loved and lived in for most of your life, as almost all of the villagers had.
Jane was delighted to welcome Hyacinthe to her home, but doubted that she would be able to alter the Lord’s mind. When Hyacinthe learned that it was indeed Lord Norwood who was riding rough shod over her dear Jane’s wishes and the villager’s too, she was ready for battle.
This is a delightful Regency tale with twists and turns and told in a charming way. It is full of fun and Lord Norwood finds that he has met his match in Miss Hyacinthe Dancy. Will Hyacinthe lose the battle to save Worthington and also lose her heart or will Lord Norwood be triumphant and move the village and break her heart also. Read this charming Regency Novel, and enjoy the adventures which unfold throughout its pages, it is fun. I give this book 5+ Red Roses and hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. AS.

As Ian grew older they made sure that no one ever knew the identity of Ian’s father. Now it is time for Ian to admit who his father is and being a SEAL with a team of men that he has fought with for years makes it even harder to admit to having a drug cartel leader for a father. Ian knows that the only way he could save his fellow team mate and best friend, Nathan after he had been captured and tortured for over a year was to admit that Diego Fuentes was his father. Ian may be admitting to who his father is but it is for more than just to free Nathan from captivity. It is to also help identify and capture a terrorist that has been eluding law enforcement for years. Now is the time to bring down both his father and the terrorist known only as Sorrell. Ian has laid the groundwork to accomplish both. But getting his father to believe that Ian has turned against his friends and country and is now ready to join the family business isn’t going to be easy. And getting Diego to trust him is going to be even harder. Ian’s mission is to identify Sorrell and bring both Sorrell and Diego in so they can face justice but Ian has other plans for the two men and they don’t include letting them live.
Kira Porter is an agent that has been sent to keep Diego Fuentes alive. He might be a drug lord but he provides a lot of information to the government and is worth more alive than dead. Now she just has to try to keep Ian from killing his father and hope he doesn’t see what she is doing as a betrayal. Kira has her own reasons for wanting Sorrell taken down and preferably dead. She is starting to have her loyalty torn between her job and her heart.

BY S R BRIDGE.
PUBLISHED BY ROBERT HALE LONDON.
Dorothea Harcourt an orphan since the age of twelve, had been brought by her Aunt and Uncle. Since her uncle died, his widow Mrs Sophie Harcourt and her cousin Clio Harcourt were her only family. Dorothea had been left an inheritance, which her Aunt believed to be small, but it in fact was quite large but had a mystery behind it which must not be revealed.
Dorothea had sold the small house she had inherited and in this way she was able to contribute to the running of their home and to help with small outings. She dared not do more as she knew her Aunt would wonder where the funds were coming from and that would never do.
The three ladies at this time were enjoying a little holiday in Matlock Bath. It was a quiet little town and not at all to Clio’s taste, as there seemed to be no young suitable gentlemen about. Dorothea would have loved to take her Aunt and Clio, somewhere more fashionable but Mrs Harcourt refused because it would have been too expensive. Dorothea knew she would have to find away to persuade her Aunt to let her lease a house in London so that Clio could have a season there. Clio was so beautiful that Dorothea knew she would meet someone suitable if only she had the chance, so she was determined to find a way to rent a house in London.
Walking on her own one day towards Matlock Vale, to blow the cobwebs away ,she was wandering around a bend in the road, so absorbed in her own thoughts that she did not notice a sporting curricle speeding towards her, at the last minute she saw it ,but tripping over her long shawl she ended up sprawled on the small bank at the side of the road.
The driver pulled his horses to and jumping down on to the road he put his hand out to help her stand and then berated her for being so stupid as to walk in the road. Dorothea was furious telling him that he should not have been driving so recklessly. After at first taking Dorothea for a local farm girl, the driver realised his mistake and apologised, he introduced himself as Martin Detherfield and offered her a lift into Matlock, as he was going that way. At fist Dorothea refused but as she was a bit shaken by her fall, she gave way and accepted a lift.
At the hotel Mrs Harcourt and the girls had met a certain Mrs Howard who was not a suitable person with which to associate, but she was a very hard lady to refuse, and seemed intent on clinging on to them all. She hinted to Dorothea that she recognised her and had known her Mother and that they had been very close. This alarmed Dorothea as her late Mother was part of the secret that the Lawyers had impressed on her must be kept.
What was the secret that Dorothea must not reveal? How could she escape the attentions of the menacing Mrs Howard and how was she to persuade her Aunt to go to London and give Clio her chance to find happiness with the right sort of man.
Does the driver of the curricle have secrets too and does he add to her fears? There is so much more to this delightful Historical romance , kidnapping and treachery add to the interest also.
I hope I have wetted your appetites with this little review, to add more would spoil it.
I loved this book and award it 5 Red Roses. AS
