Raven's Kiss by Toni LoTempio was my second experience with Toni's writing and it was great. Every time I read her work I can't wait to see what else she's going to bring out.

Raven Grace is an angry shapeshifter. She was turned by a demon named Aega and her life mission is to find him and kill him so he can't do this to anyone else.

After her last capture with the Special Recovery Unit, her boss puts her on mandated personal time off.  She is to take a break and get her anger under control.

Just when Raven is about to complain, she comes across another case that could lead her to the very demon she hunts. Before she can start the chase, she must do a little time travelling.

Learning how to cross worldly planes, she gets a peek of what and who she will be dealing with when she learns of Finn McPhea. Not only does her body heat rise at the mere glance of him, but now she must convince him that she wants to help put a stop to this demon, working by his side keeping her carnal desires in check.

I loved this story so much!  I loved Raven from the very first introduction of her. She has such a kick ass attitude and I tend to lean towards those heroines, especially if they are a woman.  You will fall in love with all of these characters and find yourself anxiously turning the pages to see how it all works out.

LoTempio's writing just keeps getting better and better. I can' t wait for her next release.

Amaury's Hellion is the second installment in Tina Folsom's Scanguard Vampires Series and it was exquisite!

One thing I can say is that each book in this series can very well stand alone. I've read this completely out of order and wasn't lost at all.

Amaury LeSang is a bodyguard for the Scanguards, run by his good friend and fellow vampire, Samson. 

Amaury lost his family after becoming a vampire, and now lives with a curse. He will never love or feel love again, but he can feel other people's emotions to such an extent that it literally causes him pain.

How does he curb it? Sex of course. Sex is the only thing that can ease the pain letting Amaury survive. He accepted his fate of never loving another, and keeps himself distanced from woman except to sex them to be pain free.

That is until he meets Nina.

Nina has been following the Scanguards to avenge her brothers death. She knows what they are and what they are capable of. She will kill Amaury if given the chance.

What she didn't expect when she confronted him was that her body would take over with needs she thought she would never feel.  As feisty as she is, Amaury is intrigued by Nina, not only because she is playing hard to get, but he cannot sense any emotion from her either.

Folsom did a magnificent job with this title. You will fall in love with these characters and the plot is so strong you can't help but to turn the page.

I highly recommend this entire series and I can't wait to delve into the latest installment, Yvette's Haven.

Shift by Takumi Yamazaki was brilliant.  This title made perfect sense and anyone would be able to make a shift in their lives after reading this book.

Yamazaki is a world known motivational speaker and after reading Shift I can see why.  He will teach you how to make a "Shift" in your thinking, actions, and daily living in such a way that you will completely understand.  Through exercises, examples, and simply changing the way you word your sentences, it can't get much easier.

This is a fast paced, to the point title that while you're reading it you will say, "Wow. It's that simple."

I would recommend this book to anyone that is ready to make a shift in their lives.  It's a great read.
