Review of Conduct Unbecoming of a Gentleman by Wareeze Woodson

Conduct Unbecoming of a Gentleman

Let’s start with the back of the book:

Recently widowed, Lady Laurel Laningham glanced around the interior of the overturned coach. With her young son in her arms, the task of climbing out of the crippled vehicle appeared overwhelmingly difficult. At that moment, a stranger offered his help and reached down for the child, but before she could struggle out after him, he immediately rode off with her son. She followed only to discover the fellow was Jamie’s new guardian. If she wanted any part in her son’s future, she must fight her sister-in-law plus her own deep attraction to Jamie’s new guardian.

Furious that the widow would abscond with his ward, Lord Adron Gladrey rescued Jamie, determined to protect him from a selfish mother able to persuade men to do her bidding and uncaring enough to expose her son to untold danger. After seeing her beauty for himself, he believed every word against her. He vowed she would soon learn he was not so easy to manipulate.

Complicating her life still further, a villainous jewel thief committed murder for a rare blue diamond she had no idea was in her possession and he would kill again. After many twist and turns, she must fight for her life. Will her son’s guardian put aside his prejudices against beautiful women in time to help her or will she follow her husband to an early grave?

Now for my review:

Conduct Unbecoming of a Gentleman grabbed my attention from the opening scene of an apparent kidnapping of the young boy Jamie. From there I was unable to put the book down…literally, I stayed up as late as I possibly could last night, reading until my eyes just wouldn’t stay open, and then I continued reading today until I finished (sorry floors you’ll get cleaned another day ;).

I know what you’re thinking “Angela, another romance?”, I’m telling you this was not your regular everyday romance novel. This book had everything! Kidnapping, stolen jewels, murder and yes romance (hot, sexy romance to boot!), every time I thought I had this book figured out a twist would happen and it took the story in another direction.

The main characters Laurel and Adron easily drew me into their story lines, their pain, anger, fear and passion jumped right off the page and I felt every emotion with them. Right up to the point where Laurel was afraid about a murderer on the loose and she was alone and in fear, while I was deep into that scene someone knocked on my front door and I literally had to pull my nails out of the ceiling and calm my nerves to answer the door.

Author Wareeze Woodson knows how to make you fall in love with her characters also she can make you want to jump into the pages and punch some in the face. Laurel’s sister-in-Law Rhonda was one such character, I will let you read it so you understand what I mean, all I will say here is what a b%&ch. :)

If you’re looking for a great read that will have you turning page after page to find out what happens next then I highly recommend this book!

Review of Its a Wonderful Undead Life by R.E Mullins

5 * Review of It’s a Wonderful Undead Life by R.E Mullins

20130605-042034.jpg

Cailey wanted Christmas to be over and done with. She had lost her mother when she was young, her marriage had recently broken up and then on Christmas Eve she receives news from her bank that she was worth more dead than alive.

In her attempt to get through Christmas she drinks herself into oblivion then goes for a walk by the river. Cailey’s Christmas goes from bad to worse when she runs into a tall, blonde stranger on a bridge by the river. Before she knows what is happening, the stranger depletes her of the majority of her blood and leaves her for dead.

Gabriel Blautsauger finds Cailey on the bridge and tries to find a way to keep her alive. Gabe is a very handsome, elegant vampire who finds himself instantly connected to Cailey.

The story flows seamlessly from scene to scene and all of the characters have a unique and distinct voice. The passion between Cailey and Gabe leap off the page and can be felt as if you were there in the room with them. The secondary characters Michaela, Metta, Rafe (Gabe’s siblings) and Morgan (Cailey’s best friend) were funny and entertaining … especially Rafe and Morgan but I will let you read into that storyline on your own.

It’s a wonderful undead life is a fantastic read that grabs you from the first line right until the last paragraph. Unfortunately while I was reading this book I was pulled away on family matters and wasn’t able to get back to it for quite sometime. While I wasn’t able to read it I found myself thinking about it and wondering what was going to happen next. When I was finally able to focus my attention back towards the book I couldn’t put it down again.

There were many twists and unexpected turns in this book and I enjoyed it so much, I quite honestly cannot wait to read the next instalment in the series.

If you are looking for a great read I highly recommend picking up a copy.

Busy Busy

Hi everyone!

I know it’s been a while and I’m sorry about that :( I’ve been super busy with work, editing my new upcoming book and crocheting.

Work is so busy right now and that’s a good thing, it keeps me out of trouble ha! Actually I love being busy so I am truly enjoying the fact that its so incredibly busy right now.

Also, I am in the process of editing my new book!! It comes out in May of this year!! I’m so excited for everyone to read it, I can’t begin to tell you. It’s called A Journey Home (thanks to Deb for the title).
It’s about Stephanie Tyler who’s job is to go overseas and pick up the bodies of fallen soldiers and bring them back home to the US. The trips become dangerous and she is forced to have a partner go on the missions with her. Much to her surprise and dismay she is partnered with her ex husband Captain ‘D.A.’ – Douglas Aston. Everything about D.A. irritates Stephanie but that could have something to do with the fact he slept with her best friend, Alex, while they were married. D.A. Denies anything ever happening between him and Alex but Stephanie won’t believe anything he says.

This is a contemporary romance story that has some serious moments as well as some rather funny moments. I really enjoyed these characters and I was sad when I finished writing the book because I was going to miss them. Yes I was going to miss characters in a book, it can happen :) However, now I get to spend time with them again as I go through the editing process and that makes me happy :)
I can’t wait for you to meet these characters! I hope you will like them as much as I do :)

I promise I will try and check in every once in a while!

Oh, crocheting you ask. Ah yes my new obsession! I always thought crocheting was super difficult but then my friend Melanie showed me how it was done and now I can’t get enough!! I follow blogs (Attic24 I’m looking at you) I read articles and when I’m not working or editing I’m crocheting. Right now my little nephew is very sick – he just has a cold but for a 4 and a half year old boy that is the equivalent of a horrible disease, he couldn’t even undo his seatbelt the other day because “it is just too hard and I’m too sick” (you may insert eye roll here I did). Anyway, he asked me to make him a blanket and of course I cannot say no to him. Therefore I have begun a new project that I hope he will love. I got the pattern for this blanket off of the Attic24 blog, you can see it here. Once I figure out how to attach photos on here I will upload one for you to see :)

Anyway I am off to get some editing done and of course my reward is to crochet :) Hope you all have a great Family Day! Yes it is a real holiday here in Canada I promise ;)

See you soon!
Angela
Ps Look! I figured out how to upload a photo…sort of :)
