The Dead Don’t Always Rest in Peace
Jason Crandall, recently widowed, is left to raise his young daughter and rebellious teenage son on his own - and the old Victorian in Shadow Springs seems like the perfect place for them to start over. But the cracks in Jason’s new world begin to show when he meets Savannah Sturgess, a beautiful socialite who has half the men in town dancing on tangled strings.

When she goes missing, secrets begin to surface, and Jason becomes ensnared in a dangerous web that leads to murder. But who has the answers that will prove his innocence? The jealous husband who’s hell-bent on destroying him? The local sheriff with an incriminating secret? The blind old woman in the house next door who seems to watch him from the windows? Or perhaps the answers lie in the haunting visions and dreams that have recently begun to consume him.

Or maybe, Savannah herself is trying to tell him that things aren’t always as they seem - and that sometimes, the dead don’t rest in peace.

Praise for Alistair Cross:

"Alistair Cross’s THE ANGEL ALEJANDRO is an intriguing tale that pits evil against good and keeps the reader on edge with surprising shifts and changes."

- New York Times Bestseller, Dianna Love
“Put Bram Stoker in a giant cocktail shaker, add a pinch of Laurell K. Hamilton, a shot of John Carpenter, and a healthy jigger of absinthe, and you’ll end up with Alistair Cross’s modern Gothic chiller, “The Crimson Corset” - a deliciously terrifying tale that will sink its teeth into you from page one.” 

- Jay Bonansinga, New York Times Bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: INVASION and LUCID

“The Angel Alejandro is as lush and ethereal as it is visceral and unholy. A demonic horde seeks to swallow up the citizens of Prominence made vulnerable by their weaknesses. Those who take a stand against the evil are emotionally damaged as well; particularly a sheriff who battles his personal demons in a bottle. The author had me rooting for each of them in spite of, or maybe because of their flaws. With masterful pacing, Cross brings a small mystery to a raging boil that threatens every soul in Prominence. His exquisite prose drew me into the story as if I were living it. Highly recommended.”

-QL Pearce, author of the Scary Stories for Sleep-Overs series, and Spine Chillers: Hair-Raising Tales

Book Review:  Retribution, (Valentine Shepherd #2)

By Shana Figueroa

**Book provided by the author for an honest review**

Rated it

Private investigator Valentine Shepherd plays by one set of rules: hers. She's haunted by dark, cryptic visions of the future, not to mention an aching hole in her chest where her heart---and the love of her life, Max Carressa---used to be. But when Val's search for a missing woman leads to her own night of terror, the only thing on Val's mind is revenge.

In the months since Val walked away from their relationship, Max has tried to move on. Yet, when she asks for his help tracking down her attacker, he knows resistance is futile; he'll do anything for Val. Even sacrifice himself to save her.

Valentine Shepherd is on the move again.  Since breaking off her relationship with the gorgeous billionaire Max Carressa, she has gone on a downward spiral straight to hell.  Drinking herself into a stupor to relieve the heartbreak, she throws herself into her work and uncovers a secret society of the super rich whom partake in disgusting acts and falls knee deep into a dark and scary as shit rabbit hole.  Can Val change her future and come out the other side alive, or will she literally end up in her own worst vision?!

The story picks up with some time passing since Val broke up with Max.  Her drinking habit has increased to a dangerous level and she has fallen into bed with her enemy Sten to "relieve the pain".  During her time spent with the shit bag, Max has gotten engaged to a high society princess and has appeared to gotten over Valentine.  When Val is hired by a frantic mother to find her missing daughter, she gleams the girls future to only end in her death.  Determined as hell to save her, she goes undercover to find out the girl was a "call girl" and disappeared after attending a Blue Serpent party.  While pushing the limits to find out more, Valentine herself is thrown into the same nightmare the missing girl has been in and now suffers serious repercussions for it.  The only person she believes can help her is none other than Max, and because he never got over Val he jumps at the chance to be near her once more.  Once the duo begin prodding into the unknown, the conspiracies, torture, and murders begin.  Val's missing persons case turns into so much more than she bargained for and had me on the edge of my seat with each plot twist!

Valentine and Max were meant to be together in my eyes.  They have this unbelievable bond that yanks the on your heart strings, and with their ability to see the future they should be a force to be wreckened with!  Despite their powers, the "Alpha" still tries to control their fate.  With secret agents working against the couple I'm not sure how they've not ended up dead already, I mean wow!  The shit these two have been through both together and separately, it's amazing they are still in one piece!  Sten's return into Val's life was unexpected and the fact that he appears to act like he genuinely cares for her turns me from a hater of the piece of shit, (cause of what he did in book 1) to actually liking him now, (which really pisses me off!)  I fucking "like" Sten now...damn it!  He helps Val hone in on her visions, and rocks her world in bed, along with seeking revenge for her after he finds out what happen to her.  Damn, shit, fuck!  I LOVED hating him!  But alas, I have a new person to hate now, haha!  I will not reveal the knew bad person, but lets just say you will be shocked as hell!  And I am so torn right now about whether this book is better than the last.  Both books blew me away, but this one seemed much more intense...maybe because I've bonded with Val and Max, maybe because of how this investigation turns out, idk.  All I know is this is a 5 Fang story through and through.  From beginning to end I was literally glued to the story.  This part of the story does have a happy ending, but I know not for long.  We will see how long that happily ever after part plays out in the next book Reckoning.  I whole heartedly recommend this book to any paranormal romance suspense thriller lover!

Audiobook Review On Counterbalance 

**Audiobook provided by the author for an honest review**


Rated it

She’s a beauty, but he’s just a geek.

The world might think billionaire Xavier Gaines has it all, but he’s got a big problem. His successful software company is about to sign a government contract that’ll land him smack in the glare of the public limelight, and his lifelong battle with social anxiety has marked him as a cold, uncaring bastard in the eyes of the press. To dispel the unflattering image, he needs help, and there’s only one person he trusts with the job—Peyton Smoke. Gorgeous, kind, and funny, she agrees to be his media relations director and soon embeds herself so deeply in his life, his world will crumble if anything upsets the balance. He cannot screw up their solid unit. No matter how achingly he desires her. Yet, how is he supposed to resist when she tugs emotions from him he didn’t think he was capable of experiencing? Especially since it appears he’s not the only one fighting their undeniable attraction. 

Xavier Gaines is a geek extraordinaire and self made billionaire of a software company, and the dude can't get a woman!  Well he can have any "woman" he wants but can't get one that is not just after him for his fortune.  His company is about to go all military contract and he needs a reputation make-over, and who better to do that than his long time high school buddy Peyton Smoke.  Peyton has the skills in PR to help X in more than one way but unbeknown to her, she's not only turning his business reputation around, she is landing right smack in the middle of the greatest love story ever told!  Can Peyton melt his hard drive?  Can Xavier make Peyton see she is worth all the love he has to give her?  

This story starts out innocent enough, with Xavier needing a media relations guru to turn his reputation around, but when he has a meeting with Peyton after not seeing her for years, he is immediately attracted to her.  Not knowing how to act, he shows no confidence in a social setting and Peyton has no choice but to help her friend who is obviously in desperate need.  Peyton hits the ground running and turns the place upside down (but in a good way), and has X on the right track very quickly, all the while during a two year span the two get closer and closer.  The attraction is there, and as days, weeks, and months go by they (meaning X), find it more and more difficult to keep things professional. 
Xavier's character was very believable and relate-able to the generation, meaning geek= no social life, computer gamer, and genius.  I felt for him up to a point.  His brains and money commanded respect, but without a personality, or social skills he was still that shy nerdy guy with no friends.  He was very close with his parents, and did treat everyone professionally, he just didn't know how to be social.  I liked him very much, how could you not?  Peyton was a different story.  She lost her parents at a young age, lost her brother in the military, and lost her finance as well.  With that kind of loss and heart break it was easy to see why she was scared of love.  The love story that developed between the two over two years was refreshing.  Their friendship grew from high school into adulthood as well as their romantic feelings for one another.  I truly enjoyed the journey they were on, and was comforted by the fact that the author didn't feel the need to add drama, or violence into the mix in order to enhance the story.  Just a good ol' fashion love story here folks, with some steamy sex scenes to light your fire!  The detail their back story, along with the pain staking long time it took for these two crazy kids to have sex, (like about 80% into the book!) brought me to a new reality where built up sexual tension makes for one hell of a release!  Counterbalance is hands down one of the best contemporary romance novels I have read in a long time!

Narrator Review

Kory Getman.  What in the world could I say about Kory that would get you to buy this audiobook now?!  Kory's voice was a really good choice for Xavier.  He had that high pitch geeky, awkward social guy voice, but pulled off a suave and debonair tone when his alpha side came out.  I don't know how to explain it, but it was spot on what I imagined Xavier would sound like, lol.  Kory and Xavier grew into a man during this book, and the proof is in his voice by the end of the book.  I just can't find words, but the man sure had confidence in bed, oy!  Kory is definetly an up and coming narrator I plan to keep a close eye on ;)   5 Fangs Kory, well done.
