Read Kay’s Review: Hunter’s Hope

Excerpt:

Hunter snapped into motion the second Alice swayed. He shot across the space between them and caught her in his arms before she could hit the floor. 

She blinked up at him, her brilliant green eyes huge in her pale face, and then she smiled a little. “This is not how I imagined the evening going.” 

Something in Hunter’s chest clenched at her courage. She’d faced down vampires and now a ghost—and probably had a demon in her house, if Meara had been right—and she still had a sense of humor. He could feel a part of his heart, the small, icy, closed-off part that had faced one too many rejections, take a small, tentative step toward warmth and hope. 

He automatically stepped on the feeling. Hard. 

Now was not the time. 

“What happened?” he asked. 

She blew out a shaky breath and pushed gently away from him to stand on her own. “Well, I guess you’re telling the truth about being vampires, because the ghost just told me that you are, and ghosts never lie.” 

“Is that all?” Meara hopped gracefully off the table and stalked toward them. “Seemed like a longer conversation than that.” 

Alice shrugged, the casual motion contradicted by the wary look in her eyes. “She also told me you want me to die.” 

“We do not want you to die,” Hunter said firmly. “We—” 

“I know,” Alice said, smoothing wisps of hair away from her face. 

“You do?” He was confused. “You just said ghosts don’t lie.” 

“Well, they don’t, as far as I know. It’s not like I’ve met all the ghosts in the world or know the secret ghost rulebook.” She gave them just a hint of a smile. “But they can be wrong. How would a dead flapper from a hundred years ago know what your intent is?” 

“Exactly!” He was pleased. “And—” 

“And simple logic tells me that you probably didn’t rent out an entire restaurant just to kill me, when you could have murdered me at the rescue and left me bleeding out on the floor. Or, I guess, not bleeding out so much as drained.” 

His smile faded, but he couldn’t disagree with her logic. 

“Look, I’ve never killed anybody and don’t plan to start now, Alice. In fact, I’ve never even bitten anybody,” he growled. “Maybe you could take that much on faith, while we get to know each other.” 

“Are we going to get to know each other?” She wrapped her arms around her waist, her body language pure self-protection combined with a touch of fear, but her flashing eyes and raised chin signaled defiance and courage. “I’m not sure that’s such a good idea, no matter how beautiful you are.” 

Hunter felt a slow, wicked smile spreading across his face. “Beautiful? I can work with that.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

When Alice rounded the back of the van, it was to discover that Marigold was no longer in her crate.

Or even in the van.

Instead, she was being held in the muscular arms of the man—ghost—from the hotel.

And the normally good-natured raccoon was hissing.

Alice froze and then forced herself forward. “What are you doing? Give her to me.”

He flashed a wickedly sensual smile that caused a ripple of sensation to wash through her, carrying an unexpected heat to every nerve ending in her body. She suddenly felt too hot, too breathless, too…alive.

“She clearly would prefer to be held by you,” he said easily. “I can’t say that I blame her.”

His blue eyes gleamed, glowing in the reflected brightness of the lantern lights affixed on either side of her front door. When he stepped toward her, she automatically took a step back. This man—this ghost—most definitely didn’t belong in her yard, holding her raccoon. He was… too much.

Too tall, too big, too intense, too gorgeous.

Her breath gave a funny little hitch in her throat.

He was beautiful.

Maybe her age? Late twenties? Or early thirties? Tall; he was easily six feet, maybe a couple of inches more. Broad shoulders angled down to a slim waist with no softness showing anywhere. And he had amazing bone structure. She suddenly wanted to dig out the paints she’d tried out a few times when she was enjoying her new freedom and try to capture the strength in his jaw, the sharpness of his high cheekbones, and the glow in his eyes. His face held a slight beard, as though he hadn’t shaved in the days before he’d died, and those long, dark lashes shaded not just his incredible eyes but the shadows beneath them. His dark hair was swept back from his forehead, as if he’d impatiently shoved it out of his way with one of the large, capable hands that currently held an armful of unhappy raccoon.

Marigold hissed again, snapping Alice out of her trance, and she edged forward, took the angry creature, and stumbled back and away from her unexpected visitor. She swallowed, hard, and tried to regain control of the situation.

The only way to deal with ghosts was to take the reins at the very beginning of each encounter. She thought she’d done this at the hotel, but she’d been caught off guard by the man’s—the ghost’s—aliveness. She’d encountered ghosts who could manipulate objects before, of course, but nothing like this.

“Listen. I—” The amusement in his gaze threw her off, and she forgot what she’d been about to say. So, she asked a basic question to give herself time to regroup. “What is your name? I can’t keep thinking of you as ‘that man’ or ‘that ghost.’”

His devilish smile flashed again. “I like that you keep thinking of me.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

As Hunter started to step out of the elevator, an odd-looking dog raced in front of him and darted inside.

“Marigold!” a woman’s voice called. “Marigold! Stop!”

Hunter looked up to see a flurry of color as a woman rushed down the hallway toward him. Or, presumably, toward the dog.

“She’s inside. She’s not going anywhere,” he said, moving to block the entry to keep the animal in, surprised to find himself amused for the second time in ten minutes. For only the third or fourth time in the weeks since he’d died.

“She might push the button for a floor, and then where would I be? Chasing her all over the hotel all night?” The woman, a colorful whirlwind of purple silk, wild red curls, and flashing green eyes, ducked past him and bent down. “You naughty thing! Hotels are dangerous! What if somebody tried to eat you?”

“This may not be a five-star hotel, but I doubt they’ve resorted to eating dogs,” Hunter drawled.

She lifted the animal into her arms and stood, turning to face him but still looking at the animal in her arms. “Marigold is a raccoon, as you can see. And this is the South. They eat raccoons in the South, or haven’t you read Nathaniel Porter’s Field Guide to Local Fauna?”

“I…can’t say that I have,” he said slowly, because his brain cells seemed to be melting.

It was a raccoon.

In a hotel.

And the raccoon rescuer was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen.

She was nearly as tall as he was, so maybe five-ten. She had cheekbones that could cut glass, and her smile, directed at the raccoon, was wide and lit up her face. Her eyes were the brilliant green of a spring apple, and her mass of red curls reached nearly to her waist. The purple dress she wore was a complicated thing made of scarves or loose flutters of fabric, and the entire picture gave him the impression of a forest nymph or fortune-teller.

“A raccoon,” he finally said, simply because the situation seemed to call for him to speak, but he had no idea what the hell to say.

“Yes. As I said. If you’d move out of the way?” She finally glanced up at him. Her eyes narrowed, and her glossy red lips tightened. “Oh. I should have known it would be that kind of night.”

He knew she was talking, but he couldn’t quite make out the words or the meaning, because every single molecule of his body was suddenly, painfully focused on one thing and one thing only.

The pulse beating in her throat.

Review – Hunter’s Hope by Alyssa Day

Hunter’s Hope; Vampire Motorcycle Club #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2021

Genre/Tropes: MC/Paranormal Romance

Author: Alyssa Day

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Full of paranormal beings, humor, and a love for animals.

Hunter Evans is an everyday hero. He was a firefighter until the night he died, only to be reborn as a vampire. Hunter never loses that instinct to want to save others. Even though he now thirsts for blood, he refuses to give in to hurting others to get it, even when that thirst wants to over take him. Hunter is sweet and adorably cute in learning to be a new vampire. He’s full of questions and while he’s grateful for another chance at life, he also struggles with the morality of it all. The person who helps him with it all isn’t another vampire, but a ghost whisperer named, Alice.

Alice Darlington originally mistakes Hunter for a ghost when she firsts meets him, given his recently dead status. She has a gift for talking to ghosts and animals, which is why her first job is running an animal shelter and she only takes appointments for handling ghost problems. So when Hunter comes back to see her…well it’s all very cute because it’s not an appointment day.

These two are adorable in their awkwardness. Hunter is not only figuring out how to be a new vampire, he’s also not had a ton of dating experience since he is the nice guy who always gets friendzoned. Alice is also in the same boat with zero dating experience, so to watch them figure it out together makes this romance extra fun.

On top of the paranormal aspect, there is the continuing mystery of who is trying to kill the paranormals and with that there is a demon sent to spy on them who ends up being both comic relief and a source of comfort.

I like that these books continue to build upon each one, so while I was disappointed that Alice’s powers were only scratched at the surface, I’m hoping they will be flushed out in later books, as Ryan’s powers have grown more since book one and we got a lot more of the werewolves in this book as well.

Synopsis:

Hunter Evans risked his life again and again as a firefighter until the night he died saving a child…only to be reborn as a vampire. Now the man who lived his life as the quintessential “nice guy” must find a way to conquer the deadly urges that threaten to turn him feral. When his own actions put a beautiful woman in danger, he vows to protect her…even from himself.

Alice Darlington has a secret of her own: she sees ghosts. She thought she’d done a good job of keeping it under wraps—until now. A terrible threat from her past is hunting her down in order to use her power for dark purposes. Now she’s on the run and doesn’t know who to trust or where to go.

When Hunter and Alice team up to battle the dangers coming at them from all sides, they’re forced to rely on each other. But Hunter doesn’t know how long he can keep the beast inside him away from the woman it craves…

The Vampire Motorcycle Club series is best enjoyed in order.

Review – Bane’s Choice by Alyssa Day

52079475

Bane’s Choice; Vampire Motorcycle Club #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Alyssa Day

Review Rating:This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1368-7.jpg

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The first in a new series for Alyssa Day, so there was quite a bit of set up for this new world. Told from multiple POV’s Bane is a centuries old vampire who has become disenchanted with his life. We are introduced to an ongoing battle between necromancers and warlocks along with a truce that in jeopardy with werewolves and we get an insight into the process of how vampires are changed. So while there is a main storyline between Bane and Ryan, there are also several multiple starting points for where this world will take off.

Bane is the leader not only over his MC group (which is something is more in the background for this story), but he is also the leader over his vampire family. He is controlling and possessive over everyone around him and the same holds true when Ryan comes into the picture.

When the war heats up everyone in Bane’s family is in jeopardy and Bane is torn on how to help when facing such a powerful enemy while trying to keep his new love safe.

Dr. Ryan St. Cloud is helping a patient, the very one that Bane steals from under her nose, when they first meet. He can sense she is different that first night, but cannot pinpoint what she is. This underlying mystery holds throughout the entire story on what makes her special, but it is something. Aside from this mystery, Ryan is bold and doesn’t back down from Bane and his commanding ways. She intrigues Bane in ways no one has in centuries and he finds himself claiming her when he knows he shouldn’t.

This was a good starting point for what I hope will be a good series because Bane’s Choice ended with several open ended plot lines. I hope the plots and subplots Alyssa started tie up in another story because I was left with questions. Aside from that, the multiple POV’s kept the book moving and did ramp up the suspense. It also had me looking forward to upcoming books, which again hopefully will answer some of my questions.

Overall, if you love the paranormal world, there is a lot to look forward to in this new world created by Alyssa Day.

Synopsis:

When a centuries-old vampire in search of redemption meets a doctor who’s on a mission of her own, a searing, world-destroying passion is the last thing on either of their minds.

Minds can be changed.

A doctor with secrets of her own is drawn to a dangerous predator in this pulse-pounding paranormal romance from New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Day.

What better way to hide the existence of vampires from humans than in plain sight? Thus, the Vampire Motorcycle Club was born. Bane, the 300-year-old vampire who leads the club, has fought for years to protect his kind. But the truth about vampires is not only that they exist, it is that they are creatures of pure desire. Conscience and restraint has been burned out of them by the process of Turning. Any woman Bane meets is either prey—or food.

Dr. Ryan St. Cloud finds out that vampires exist when one steals her patient out of the hospital right beneath her nose, leading her to question her own sanity. But when the dangerous man whose touch inflames her senses and whose gaze enthralls her comes to her for help, she is unable to refuse. Bane is a dangerous predator, but somewhere beneath his arrogance and power, she can see his heart—and she knows it could belong to her if she is strong enough to claim it. She is bound to a vampire, but loving her would be … Bane’s Choice.
