What the Lady Wants

 
Contemporary Romance
Date Published: December 14, 2015
 
 

The heiress…

She’d wanted him since she was eighteen. Four years away hasn’t cooled the heat Doyle arouses in her, which means it’s time for Thea to take the former Marine by the horns and open his eyes to everything he’s missing. What will it take to prove that she’s not some untouchable porcelain doll, but a red-blooded woman determined to finally get her man?

 

The bodyguard…

Honor forced Doyle to consider Thea off-limits. Keeping her that way was proving much more difficult. Every time he turns around she’s there, wreaking havoc on his senses, making him think about long, sweaty nights and how good she would feel wrapped up in his arms. How long could a man be expected to ignore the woman who calls to his every secret desire?

 

The danger…

But Doyle has a secret that could jeopardize not only the first fragile bonds of love, but Thea’s very life. Will he be able to act before it’s too late for them both?

 

Review

There lot going on in both Thea and Doyle’s worlds. It is the daunting task of Nika Rhone to make sure that the reader understands motivations and feelings of the authors and I think she does a great job with this aspect of writing.

The romance is very believable. I enjoyed the fact that they had to overcome  their pasts. Its a great second chance romance and a beautiful love story.

Nika Rhone has been fascinated with storytelling from the moment that first book was placed in her eager little hands, starting a lifelong love affair with the written word.  Eventually, though, reading other people’s stories just wasn’t enough, so she started to write down her own.  The magic of creating brand new worlds and the people who live in them keeps her hard at work thinking up the next set of characters she can torture before giving them their happy ending.  She lives in her hometown on Long Island, New York with the two men in her life: her super-indulgent husband and their outrageously spoiled shelter dog.

Mystery
Date Published: November 4, 2015
 
 

No sooner does psychic Lottie Baldwin pull up stakes and move to Cheyenne, North Dakota, than she finds herself up to her neck in a series of mysterious robberies. Can Lottie and the handsome new man in her life, deputy sheriff Harlan Erikson, solve the crime spree before Lottie becomes the next victim?

Review 

This was a super easy read with a lot going on. The story isn’t the lengthiest of novels, and that leads to a little less detail and a little bit of a faster unfolding of the relationship and the mystery aspects.
I think all in all Elizabeth Delsi managed to balance the length and pacing well.
The characters were my favorite part of the novel. I felt connected to Lottie and understood her attraction and relationship with Harlan.
The mystery was fun and kept me guessing.

 Paranormal Romance
Date Published: December 5, 2015

As fanged creatures run rampant throughout the city after sunset, the life of a young African-American woman named Alicia starts to take a dark turn that may also plunge her right into the arms of her one true love. Between all the bloodlust, deceit, heartbreak, and the taking of innocent human lives, romance and the strong bonds of friendship still prevail. But it’s a notoriously crazy vampire like Bess that has made it her eternal life’s purpose to dim that sliver of light until she gets the one thing she truly wants: Dagon. With Bess’s reckless, unrequited pursuit to make him 100% hers, who will have to pay with their lives in the process? Friendships will be tested, relationships will be challenged, and humanity will be abandoned. All in the name of love and vampiric desires.
EXCERPT
After Alicia had finished with her side work, she returned to the restaurant’s dining room. There, sitting at Table 9, just like before, was Dagon.
“Your man is here,” said Susan. Susan was a vibrant redhead who loved to gab with Gail. It was obvious that Gail had filled her in.
“Yes, I know. I see him.”
“He’s so hot. We never get any hot young things in here. Why don’t you let me wait on him tonight?”
Alicia laughed. “No way. He’s a really good tipper, and I need the money.” Even if Dagon hadn’t tipped her one hundred dollars last night, she wasn’t going to let Susan steal the moment she had been waiting for.
Susan rolled her eyes. “His name is Dagon, right?”
Alicia felt her chest tense up. “Yeah, how did you know that?”
“I told him how cute he was, and I asked him his name.”
“Oh.”
“You’re not mad, are you?”
“No, why would I be mad?” Alicia turned her head away. She was mad, very mad, but when she looked over at Table 9 again, she saw Dagon smiling at her with the same enticing look he had on his face before.
“Slip him my number, okay?”
Alicia turned around. “What?”
“Would you please give him my number?” Susan shoved a small piece of paper into Alicia’s apron pocket.
“You’ve got to be kidding me.”
“I’m serious, and I’m sure Dagon would go out with me if he knew I wanted to go out with him.”
Alicia reached into her pocket and handed the paper back to Susan. “No.”
“Just give it to him, okay? Tell him it’s from the hot redhead. Would you do that for me, please?”
“Why don’t you do it yourself? I’m not your messenger.”
“I don’t want to interrupt him, especially because you won’t let me wait on him.”
Alicia pushed the note back in her pocket. “Yeah, whatever.” She poured a cup of coffee and headed to his table, leaving Susan standing there.
“Hey, Alicia. It’s so good to see you again.”
Alicia tried not to smile too wide. “Hi. I brought you coffee. Do you want it?”
“Sure.”
Alicia set the coffee down, at which point Dagon handed her another one-hundred-dollar bill.
“Thank you so much.” Alicia tried not to beam. If he wanted to throw hundreds at her, she wasn’t about to complain. She dug into her pocket. “Here’s a note for you. It’s from the redhead who’s staring at us.”
Dagon glanced at the note and then dropped it on the table. He looked at Alicia again. “You’re as gorgeous today as you were yesterday.”
“Thank you.”
Dagon didn’t say anything more. He just stared, seemingly pleased with what he saw. It made Alicia almost melt into herself. He didn’t seem to care at all about Susan or her note.
“Is it just the coffee again?”
“Yes. I’ll enjoy watching you work.”
“Okay. I’ll be back to check on you.” Alicia hurried away to serve her other tables, her heart racing.
She had to leave the dining room to pick up her orders that were ready. But when she came back, Dagon was gone.
