Review - Future Savior by Jennifer Hartz



Future Savior book 1 - Conception
Blurb:
"I do not think it is a question of where, but when." were the words that Charis left my mother with thirty years ago when I disappeared from Meric…before I was born. 

Shortly after being sent back I've been attacked by man-eating Vaipes. I've learned that my father was a power wielding Guardian. I've discovered that the silvery-blue eyes intriguing me my entire life belong to my Watcher, Shaw who is without a doubt the most handsome man I have ever seen. And somehow I need to stop a war mongering tyrant who can manipulate people's thoughts. 

So my question isn't where or when. It is how? How can I help the people of Meric when I can't stop myself from falling in love?

review:
Christina's life while not exciting is full filling. A High School PE teacher she is amused when one of her students asks her to the High School Prom, although she knocks back the request she can't get his blue eyes out of her mind. She's seen them before several times over the course of her life. That night she passes out in a restroom and wakens in a magical world to find she's not who she thought she was and her student isn't who she thought he was.

Russell is in fact Shaw, a shape shifter who has been watching over her the whole of her life. Transplanted into another woman's womb to keep her safe, Christina has been called to her homeland of Meric to save her people.

This story has everything a sci-fi or fantasy lover will enjoy. Elves, dwarves, (but not the ones Christina imagines from Earth culture) mythical creatures, not to mention green chickens and Biblical parallels, as Christina discovers who she is. The descriptions of Meric are wonderful, the country and it's people coming as alive as Tolkin's Middle Earth.

The first of a series, this one ends on a cliff hanger. I shall definitely be looking out for the next one in the series. Well worth reading.
5/5




Blurb

Time matters very little when you're dead. I discovered this intriguing fact after being tortured and stabbed to a tree in the strange land of Meric, a place where I discovered my unbelievable powers and experienced an adventure far more amazing than I could have ever imagined. 

Now that I'm dead, I find myself stuck in my past, 1991 to be exact… or am I actually dead? Perhaps my adventure to Meric had just been a dream. My unbelievable destiny, all of the friends I made, and even Shaw, the man I fell in love with… just a dream? bridge that gap and get their intimacy back on track? 

Review 

Resurrection takes up the story from where Conception leaves off. Christina is dead and the forces of evil are amassing in Meric. Or is she dead? Stuck in her past she’s unsure what’s the dream and what is reality.

Just as gripping as book one, the second book in this series pulls you into its pages and sets you off on a rollercoaster or a ride. Full of vivid landscapes, battles, and loves lost, it has enough twists and shocks to leave you breathless and wanting more.

5/5

A Tuscan Legacy book one - That's Amore

THAT’S AMORE A Tuscan Legacy Book 1

When Rafaele and Jayne meet again two years after dancing the night away together in Tuscany, is it a matter of fate or of faith? After deciding to take a six-month sabbatical, Italian lawyer Rafaele Rossi moves from Florence back to Villa Rossi in the middle of Tuscany, resigned to managing the family farm for his aging nonna after his father’s passing. Convinced a family get-together is what Nonna needs to lift her spirits, he plans an eightieth birthday party for her, making sure his siblings and cousins attend. The Keswick jewelry store where Jayne Austin has worked for seven years closes its doors. Jayne takes her generous severance pay and heads off to Italy—Tuscany to be precise. Choosing to leave her fate in God’s hands, she prays she’ll miraculously bump into the handsome best man she’d danced the night away with at a friend’s Tuscan wedding two years ago. She hasn’t been able to forget those smoldering brown eyes and that rich Italian accent. J…

A Tuscan Legacy book 4 - Ti Amo by Marion Ueckermann

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.
The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in architectural history and archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fearing that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single. American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows …

Justice - Emily Conrad

Blurb: Jake thought he was meant to marry Brooklyn, but now she's pregnant, and he had nothing to do with it. Brooklyn can’t bring herself to name the father as she wrestles with questions about what her pregnancy means and how it will affect her relationship with Jake. If Harold Keen, the man who owns the bookstore across from Jake's coffee shop, has anything to do with it, the baby will ruin them both.
Excerpt
The door opened, and Brooklyn ducked through. The only mascara left on her face was a faint smudge below one of her eyes. That could only mean one thing: she was pregnant. She took an uncertain step toward him. He wrapped her in his arms, but even so, she’d never been further out of his reach. “I can’t do this,” she said against his shoulder. “You can.” He leaned his head to look at her face. Her closed eyes seeped tears. “We’ll do it together.” Liar. He couldn’t help her with a baby. That job belonged to Caleb. Yet, he had the sense that the promise answered his prayer. It …
