(Last Frontier Lodge #5)

by J.H. Croix (Goodreads Author)
 4.37  ·   Rating details ·  107 Ratings  ·  18 Reviews

A steamy, full-length, standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA from Amazon Bestselling author J.H. Croix! If you like smoking hot romance with alpha men and strong women, you’ll love this series!

Sometimes what we run from leads us exactly where we need to be.

Jessa Hamilton has nowhere else to go. So she’s packed up her little blue truck and driven to Alaska, seeking refuge at Last Frontier Lodge where at least she has family she can count on. A fender bender lands her in the path of Eli Brooks, a man of pure, well, manliness. Rugged and sexy with a smile that sends sparks flying through her, Jessa has no idea what to do with the way Eli makes her feel.

Eli has plenty on his mind and none of it has anything to do with meeting a woman who makes him reconsider his commitment to avoiding romance. A painful past led Eli to seek peace in the land he loves—the wilderness of Alaska. Eli is a classic Alaskan—he breathes hunting and fishing. Jessa is unlike any woman he’s ever encountered—quirky, sexy, independent and…a vegetarian.

While Jessa tries to put the pieces of her life together, a surprise from the past forces Eli to question just how much running from the past has gotten him. As they each grapple with their own ghosts, passion burns like wildfire between them.

*All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.

My Review

Wow! I swear these books get sweeter and sweeter.

In this story Gage’s little sister Jessa is visiting after a fire took here home and all her belongings. She was lucky to make it out alive. Upon her first day in Diamond Creek she backs into a truck. The owner of said truck is the sexy and most handsome Eli.

Eli is the owner of Game to Fishing. He is successful and handsome and survivor of an abusive upbringing. So when his baby brother Ryan shows up he is determined to keep him safe. Being safe means not sending him back.

What Eli did not expect was the beautiful woman whom has invaded his mind, body and soul. He never saw himself in a relationship. He is scared of becoming like his father and is afraid to let go. Will this drive Jessa away?

Jessa is a beautiful person, inside and out. She is very artistic and shy. I loved reading her story and watching her open up. Eli is wonderful and kind. He is so caring and protective.

This is another great toe curling cozy romance, with enough heat to light your fire. So grab that glass of wine and settle in for a nice steamy little number.

Blackwater Savior: Mia and Spooky
Inger Iversen
Publication date: December 28th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Want to read exclusive content, hear audiobooks available exclusively only to members, join members only giveaways, and more? Join the Insiders Club and become a member. It is free, sign up is fast, and comes with a free book from my library of your choice. The first free short story features Mia and Spooky from the Blackwater Renegades releasing in December. Join to today!

Two years ago, Mia Sheridan’s face lay plastered on missing person flyers, CNN, and other various news outlets. She was one among six other missing women from the Clearwater area, neither a trace nor a hair left behind. Abducted and beaten, Mia has finally come to terms with the fact that she will die … her only concern is when that time will come.

Road Captain and eight-year vet with the Blackwater Renegades, Spooky is tasked with convincing a monster to sign divorce papers. He expected blood and mayhem, but what he got instead was Mia Sheridan, who was like an innocent angel. He never believed in love at first sight―lust at first taste was more like it―but the honey-eyed woman with a glint of defiance in her eyes is a fighter, and that he can respect. When Spooky takes a solemn vow to protect her, he finds himself in over his head, but right where he belongs.

Blackwater Savior is a short story, a prelude to Mia and Spooky.

A paranormal novella
by E. H. James
Coming January 5, 2018
Crossing Kindle cover.jpg

Unaware of the powers lurking within her, Caitlin opens a door between worlds, allowing a fallen angel to pass through the veil of darkness into the light.

Attaching himself to Caitlin, he feeds off her fear to build his strength, intending to kill her, in order to prevent the door through which he can be forced back into the darkness from opening.

Aware of Malfeil’s return, Ezriel, the angel who cast him down by divine order, must be the one to send him back into the darkness. He appears to Caitlin, calling upon her to ask him to help her. But between his visits—causing her to have missing time—and Malfeil doing whatever he can to frighten her, Caitlin begins to question her sanity.

Realizing what she must do, there’s just one problem. An emergency room doctor, with a penchant for house calls, believes her unstable and is seeking to have her institutionalized.

Now she must evade the doctor while seeking out Ezriel…and all before Malfeil kills her.
