Glimmer of Hope (The Other Realm Book 2) by Heather G. Harris

I’m Jinx, your run-of-the-mill Private Investigator…except I’m also a walking talking lie detector. Oh and I belong to a magical realm known as the Other.

I’m hired to investigate the brutal murder of a dryad, Reggie. Murder isn’t usually my gig but I know the grieving widow, so I agreed to help out. I hoped it would be easy to crack, a mugging gone wrong, but when I see the murder scene photos I know it will be anything but. Reggie’s death has all the hallmarks of my parents’ own murders and now I’ll stop at nothing to finding his killer.

Reggie was into some bad stuff, maybe even selling drugs. And the drug? It’s called Boost and it’s a Russian roulette whether you get high, or dead. This time it’s killed the wrong dragon and I find myself with a new sidekick who won’t take no for an answer.

Now I have two deaths to solve, and one sexy dragon king along for the ride.

I need to find Reggie’s murderer.

I need to discover who killed my parents.

And I need to try and keep my distance from the charismatic dragon Prime, Emory.

Glimmer of the Other (The Other Realm Book 1) by Heather G. Harris

I can tell when you’re lying. Every. Single. Time.

I’m Jinx. As a private investigator, being a walking, talking lie detector is a useful skill – but let’s face it, it’s not normal. You’d think it would make my job way too easy, but even with my weird skills, I still haven’t been able to track down my parent’s killers.

When I’m hired to find a missing university student, I hope to find her propped up at a bar – yet my gut tells me there’s more to this case than a party girl gone wild. Firstly, she’s a bookish soul who’s as likely to go off the rails as Mother Theresa. Secondly, I’m not the only one on her trail; she’s also being tracked by the implacable and oh-so-sexy Inspector Stone.

Stone and I team up, and he shoves me into a realm where magic is real – a place where there are vampyrs and werewolves, dragons and trolls. And where my skills are more than just detecting lies…

Oh, and my dog? He’s a freaking hellhound who can manipulate the magical realms themselves.

I need to find the girl.

I need to discover who killed my parents.

And I need to find out more about the attractive but mysterious Zachary Stone…

Hana’s Review

– 4.5 stars
– Urban fantasy
– Supernatural/paranormal

I tend to read romance but sometimes venture into urban fantasy and the supernatural so when this author reached out and asked me to read her ARC and provide an honest review, I happily agreed. Especially since there was an awesome dog on the cover and I’ve got a soft spot for all the pups.

And I was not disappointed in the least!! The world that Harris creates is wonderfully exciting and different and yet co-exists within the world we know. Jinx, our heroine, is a strong, young and self-employed private investigator with an incomparable bullsh*t meter. No, seriously, you can’t lie to her. She’s got this incredible innate skill to tell when someone is lying. She soon comes to find out that it’s not just an innate skill.

Jinx gets hired on a missing person case but learns so much more than she bargains for about the world, about herself, her past and her abilities. We enter into a world with seers, wizards, werewolves, vampires, trolls, dryads and more!! A complicated world with its own governing body and political intrigue, sacrifices, bargains and mystical icons.

The book is an exciting, fun and engaging read. I didn’t want to stop reading and I cannot wait for the second book!

Books & Bullets (Watchdog Protection, Inc. Book 3) by Cameron Hart

The strong silent type might just be what she needs.

Raven: As one of the librarians at the Chicago public library, I’m used to the quiet. I’ve always loved books. The smell of them, the million different places they can transport you to, and the way they always seem to have the right words.

When Slater comes to her rescue, she thinks one of the scarred heroes from her favorite romance novels has come to life.

The man of few words falls for the girl who loves to get lost in them.

Slater: I’ve searched for redemption every day of the last three years. Visions of the roadside bomb that jacked me up and killed everyone else in the vehicle haunt me in my sleep. Why did I live when so many others died?

All I’ve ever wanted is to be someone’s knight in shining armor. That’s I joined the military and why I eventually agreed to start Watchdog Security, Inc with my ex-military buddies.

When I’m assigned to guard the library, I expect it to be the most boring job of my life. Until I spot Raven.

Can Slater protect his woman and finally find the words to tell her how he feels?

What to expect from a Cameron Hart book: Lots of heat, plenty of sweet, and just enough drama to keep things interesting. No cheating, safe, guaranteed HEA!

Ropes & Roses (Watchdog Protection, Inc. Book 2) by Cameron Hart

She’s focused on work and moving out of a bad living situation. He’s focused on her.

Shiloh: Everyone leaves, whether by betrayal, abandonment, or untimely death. Trust me, I would know. The only person left in my family is my deadbeat aunt who is just using me for my paycheck.

But I have dreams. Big ones. I’m going to own my own floral shop as soon as I can afford it. I just have to keep my head down and work hard. Even if it means taking a second job at Joe’s Hot Dog Shack and putting on a humiliating hot dog costume to hand out samples in the blazing Chicago heat.

Just when I thought my day couldn’t get any worse, a GQ cowboy gives me a smile and a wink. How do I respond? By passing out in his arms.

He’s always believed in love at first sight, but his future wife needs more convincing. He’s just the cowboy for the job.

Colton: It happened just like my dad said it would. One minute, I thought my life was fine. The next minute, I knew I’d never be content without her by my side. When the beauty in the hot dog suit fainted in my arms, her fate was sealed. She’s mine now.

Shiloh’s been hurt before, and she sure doesn’t trust me, but I have a plan to woo my woman.

That plan goes off the rails as soon as Shiloh witnesses a crime in the alley behind her work. Now my only mission is to protect her, and hopefully, win her heart as well.

Just when they thought the threat was over, Shiloh finds herself in danger. Will she be able to trust Colton to come to her rescue once more?

Guns & Glitter (Watchdog Protection, Inc. Book 1) by Cameron Hart

He thought the job would be easy. Until he met Spencer.

Logan: She’s messy, infuriatingly optimistic, and chatters as much as the birds she loves. Spencer. My ex-military buddy’s daughter. My new assignment. My greatest temptation.

For a man who loves silence and order, I can’t understand why her particular brand of chaos soothes me. There’s more beneath the surface of her bubbly exterior, however. She sparkles like glitter, through and through, but she harbors a darkness I feel down to my very soul.

What secrets could she be hiding? Will I be able to figure them out before her stalker strikes again?

She’s been kept in a gilded cage, waiting to live her life. Waiting for someone like Logan to show her how.

Spencer: My dad has been overprotective of me since the car accident fifteen years ago. I shouldn’t complain. I have every luxury, including all the art supplies I could ever want.

But there’s more to life than observing it from the windows in my tower.

When I somehow attract a stalker, my father hires his old military friend to watch over me while he’s away on business. I didn’t know what to expect, but Logan definitely wasn’t it. He’s all muscles and sharp edges, but those blue eyes hold such tenderness, whether he knows it or not. I want to break down his walls and get my stoic bodyguard to smile. Just once.

Will their fragile love survive the looming threats that lie ahead?

What to expect from a Cameron Hart book: Lots of heat, plenty of sweet, and just enough drama to keep things interesting. No cheating, safe, guaranteed HEA!

Beguiled (Covington Security Book 3) by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

From bestselling author Dr. Rebecca Sharp comes an enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense…

Dex Covington knows one calculated risk can ruin everything. His brilliance behind the screen earned him the highest security clearance in the military—but not without lasting consequences. Now, he takes comfort in logic and numbers—solving Covington Security’s cyber crimes with the hopes it will ease the weight of his past.

Until a new case strolls through his door with her long legs, spunky personality, and the flirty smile that’s been aimed at him for months.

Laura ‘Jo’ Benson is ready to take on her new life after a rocky past—or she was until some jerk stole her identity. The bright side? Her sassy humor was left untouched. Oh, and the man who’s going to help her is the kind of nerdy-hot that makes her knees weak.

Finding the thief is one thing. But when the threats start and Jo’s installed as Dex’s houseguest, the real battle begins. He can’t afford to be beguiled by her charms—the consequences are too risky.

But Jo’s determined. To crack the case—and Dex’s shell of solitude—she’ll prove that his risk is worth the reward.

The trouble comes to a head when Riley receives a warning from the killer: Back off or she’s next. Someone has to solve these murders before she becomes the next corpse.

She’d thought she’d found someone to spend the rest of her life with, but when he turned out to not be interested in her, or their son, she knew she had to leave. She made her way to the small town of Fallport, Virginia with nothing more than what would fit in her car.

Zeke Calhoun was happy to get out of the Army Green Berets and settle into small town life as a bar owner. His job with the Eagle Point Search & Rescue team fulfills his need to serve, while not taking up every moment of his life.

Except, danger strikes when it’s least expected, and it’ll take every one of the skills Zeke learned in the military, and the help of his teammates, to keep his vow to both Elsie…and her son.

Code Name: Tiara (Jameson Force Security Book 7) by Sawyer Bennett

I joined Jameson Force Security for three reasons: the missions, the danger, and the money. I definitely didn’t join the team to be an overpriced babysitter for a spoiled princess. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you Jackson Gale is an adventurer through and through. Yet here I am, halfway across the world, watching over Princess Camille of the House Winterbourne. Even her name sounds stuck up.

After arriving in Bretaria, I realize that Princess Camille is nothing that I expected. Beautiful, smart, and sophisticated, Camille is the very picture of elegance and grace. But under her perfect façade, she is funny, adventurous, sexy as hell, and impossible to resist. And that is a dangerous combination.

The closer Camille and I become, the more obvious it is that while she and I are compatible in many ways, our destinies are not. She has a duty to the monarchy, and I’m just an average American who’s fallen for a princess. Everyone says we can’t be together, but how does one walk away from the other half of their heart?
