In the Dante family, one touch was all it took. The heat shared between Constantine Romano and Gianna Dante would not be ignored—even though Constantine left town nearly two years ago! But now he was back and Gianna was about to teach him that a Dante was not to be ignored….

 

The Italian businessman didn’t anticipate this lovely Dante getting under his skin—but he wouldn’t let anyone else have her, either! Whether or not he believed in the legend of the Inferno, Constantine knew that Gianna was going to be his by whatever means possible. And his brand of persuasion would be oh-so-passionate!

My Thoughts

 

Last book for the Dante family and this one is Gianna love. She’s the baby girl protected by all the male, brothers and cousins, so you can see how hard it is to actually introduce some new boyfriend to the family, but things were a little different when we discovered that Constantine was her Inferno chosen, we first met him in Dante Contract Marriage, he’s Ariana brother and we followed how important in was for him to achieve success in business.

 

After months seperated Gianna thought Constantine didn’t want her and started a new relationship with the wrong guy, plus we got to see more from both Constantine and this new guy, they have some secrets from the past, nothing good.

 

I liked how this couple handled things, but Constantine acted in very bad ways some moments, but he’s kinda perfect and just wanted some money to provide her and create anew family.

 

Also the end lead us to believe that a new Dante will have a book, now just wait and see.

The Inferno struck without warning, but Draco Dante had no complaints. For his family’s legacy drew him to Shayla Charleston, a mysterious beauty who ignited his blood. Soon he had her in his bed…and just as quickly she was gone.

 

After months of searching, Draco finally found the woman who was his destiny…the woman who was about to bear his child. But secrets began to rise, and Draco was torn between past strife with their families, and a future with his wife and son. Could Draco trust she shared their Inferno bond? Or had Shayla agreed to their marriage pact for an entirely different reason?

My Thoughts

 

This series is almost over and we get to see a very strong woman. In the same party Rafe found his Inferno bride we discovered Shayla, and Draco found the women of his life. But things are not that simple and these two suffered a lot before finally love each other.

 

Shayla was party crashing because she wanted a glimpse of the Dante and the next day she had a business meeting with them, but she also wanted a wild night and to lose her V card since it was her birthday and freedom was her wish. That’s how she met Draco, he was close to the door and the first to see her, but when their touch made sparkles fly neither could escape for the night.

 

Shayla has a new job and vanished the night after, but Draco never stopped looking for her and we discovered that she was pregnant and her grandmother is pure evil. These two had to overcome lots of issues from both families, especially after they found some secrets from the past.

 

Great book and loved Draco.

One woman who was meant only for him? Rafe Dante denied The Inferno–that passionate knowing that made the palms of destined lovers itch. But his family wasn’t so easily convinced and paraded women in front of him. Until a brainstorm struck…

 

"He" would choose a bride, proclaim her his soul mate, and when she left, he’d be "brokenhearted" and his family wouldn’t dare interfere again. So Rafe hired sweet, beautiful Larkin Thatcher to be his temporary fiancée.

 

But Larkin had secrets–and then Rafe felt the infernal heat rising….

My Thoughts

 

Sixth book in this series and this one was really sweet. Larkin was hiding a secret but it was not her fault who she was related and she got in trouble after Rafe discovered everything, but things are not as bad as it sounds.

 

Rafe was tired of his family trying to marry him of, especially after they discovered his ex-wife wasn’t The Inferno Bride, and now that she’s dead for awhile and he didn’t found anyone new to spent the life, everyone is driving him crazy with meeting new people.

 

So one night he decides to pretend to have found this Inferno and made a pact with Larkin, but the only problem was these two didn’t expect to find more than love.

 

I loved the development in this book and how these two progressed into love. Really good.

Mr. June: Luc Dante, take-no-prisoners bachelor

 

His Vow: Avoid the Dante Inferno…at all costs

 

His Destiny: Watching over the one woman who can make him burn

 

Only family obligation could have forced him to play babysitter to heiress Tea de Luca. But when Luc felt the heat of the Dante Inferno, undeniable passion quickly propelled them into bed. It was supposed to be for just six weeks…until their families found out. Dante duty had Luc agreeing to a wedding–but would he ever accept Tea as his destined love?

My Thoughts

 

This was a great book and I loved Tea. She’s fun, a little lost and more than intelligent, but she made Luc fall to his knees.

 

Luc is the security time in the Dante diamonds and now he was kinda blackmailed by his grandmother to keep save Tea de Luca, she’s a friend of the family and he doesn’t want to work following a spoiled girl, but discovered that she’s very different and family is important to her.

 

I liked how Luc handled the crazy life that Tea was trying to jungle and he also discovered the stealing happening in her business, plus the sexy scenes were really good and hot.

Cold Fury #1

July 24th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile

I first read of this book in February and liked the summary but haven’t her much about it on the blogosphere. Loved the cover too!!

Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos in this breathtaking adventure

Sara Jane Rispoli is a normal sixteen-year-old coping with school and a budding romance–until her parents and brother are kidnapped and she discovers her family is deeply embedded in the Chicago Outfit (aka the mob).

Now on the run from a masked assassin, rogue cops and her turncoat uncle, Sara Jane is chased and attacked at every turn, fighting back with cold fury as she searches for her family. It’s a quest that takes her through concealed doors and forgotten speakeasies–a city hiding in plain sight. Though armed with a .45 and 96K in cash, an old tattered notebook might be her best defense–hidden in its pages the secret to "ultimate power." It’s why she’s being pursued, why her family was taken, and could be the key to saving all of their lives.

Action packed, with fresh, cinematic writing, Cold Fury is a riveting and imaginative adventure readers will devour.

          Darkness Dawns (Immortal Guardians, #1)Night Reigns (Immortal Guardians, #2)

 

Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural.

She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it’s not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire . . .

Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different – and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question – he can’t put her in danger. But she isn’t asking him . . .

Suddenly Tod’s future wasn’t so sure, and he had to make a choice. Life… Death… or something Between…
My Soul to Steal
Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.
