Book Description:
Love blooms across species, culture, and time.

Stranded in another dimension, on a primitive version of Earth, Dr. Susan Barlow needs to find a way to survive. There’s no electricity, no cities, and to her shock, no humans. Instead, she faces a population of werewolves, vampires and incubi. The people are vicious but she must find her place among them. And live.

An illness is killing Sorin’s pack. As alpha it’s his responsibility to save them, but it’s a battle this warrior doesn’t know how to fight. Then a blue light in the sky brings a creature he’s never seen. She calls herself human, but to him she smells like hope.

Sorin offers Susan a safe haven in return for a cure, but she’s not that kind of a doctor. She’s a doctor of physics, not a physician. Yet as they search for a cure to save a dying people, they find something special—each other.

But even with Sorin’s protection, Susan can’t help but wonder how long she can survive in a world without humans…

Warning: Feral shifters, power-hungry vampires, and a sole human female suffering culture shock

Alisha’s Review:
Susan was instantly captivating. She’s geeky, she’s resourceful, she has a heart full of gold. What’s not to love? I admit that I held my breath each time she focused on trying to leave Eorthe (I silently would yell ‘nooooo’ as she contemplated her escape). She just seemed to fit in so well that I immediately hoped she’d come to her senses and stay. Her passion for the people of the new dimension was admirable and seeing the world through her eyes was an exciting adventure. On top of trying to figure out her place on Eorthe, she finds herself falling in love with the deliciously tormented Sorin, who is desperate to save his clan from a disease that they’ve never dealt with before. The passion between Susan and Sorin is hot. H. O. T.  You hear me? Every scene between them had both of my eyebrows raised in anticipation. Goodness.

Eorthe is full of other fun characters as well: Kele, the werewolf princess who has trouble shifting, vampire Benic who has his own agenda and Peder, Sorin’s right hand wolf who seems to have something stirring underneath his quiet surface. Each character captured my attention (and more importantly, my imagination) and I loved every single one. I cannot wait until the next installment of the Chronicles of Eorthe series comes out!

I give Scent of Salvation 5 out of 5 for steamy scenes, lots of action and a great story.

Book Description:

Tessa Von Hellengaard is a real witch. Magical spells aside, she’s snarky and selfish, and the other witches in her silent spell coven are fed up with her. Their plan to reform Tessa involves taking away her magic, saddling her with one hundred extra pounds, and sending her to a weight loss spa.

For good measure they call in Liam Kennedy, a charming and sexy fairy godfather, to teach her some manners. Desperate to regain her magic and determined to shed the weight, Tessa soon realizes that protecting her heart from Liam will prove to be her greatest challenge


This is a light, fun read that quickly introduces you to bad-girl/witch Tessa as she learns that she will be punished for misusing her magic. Tessa is a spoiled brat that has allowed her magic to get in the way of being a decent human being and the high council has decided to strip her of her magic to teach her a few lessons. Her fairy godfather, Liam, is definitely hunky and wastes no time letting her know he only has eyes for her. Although this was a short read, it was very enjoyable and I didn’t feel like I needed to know any more than what Caroline Mickelson tells us about the characters. I definitely enjoyed the creative way Tessa has to learn how to be a better person. I would certainly recommend this book to someone who is looking for a fast and fun peek inside the witching world! F315E08AB189414D182952C46BF4C82A
