A FATE WORSE THAN DEATH. It’s all part of his sick game. A game he’s been planning for an entire decade. Now everything is perfect: One woman and one man have been selected. They used to be a couple—and they can no longer stand one another. They are the perfect victims. He doesn’t intend for the game to be easy. He wants to push them to the brink of insanity, to make his hunt real. . .
A DESIRE WORTH FIGHTING FOR. . . The couple has been captured and dumped into a massive wooded area. There’s only one rule in this fatal game: They will have 72 hours to find a way out before the sadistic serial killer begins his hunt . . .But what he never could have expected was the explosive passion that ignites between the two ex-lovers—one that makes them strong. Fierce. And determined to do whatever it takes to escape—and to survive. . .

72 Hours is a suspenseful rollercoaster of emotions. It was heart pounding suspense that had me hooked from the Prologue.
Lara and Noah were picked by a killer for a game. He underestimates their love and strength.
Bella’s writing is fantastic and she really makes you feel. The story flows seamlessly and is told in multiple POV’s.
I could not put this book down until it was done. The suspense kept me engaged in the story. I literally finished in the middle of the night.
Hang on to your seat, this is a ride you want to experience. – Reviewed by Christina


72 HOURS by Bella Jewel was just amazing, it kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish and even when it was over I kept waiting for more. the suspense alone was enough to have me chewing off my nails.

The plot of this story is quite simple, what do you do when your cheating ex shows up and wants a chance to talk to you and explain what you really saw the day you broke up with him, you ignore him, even though he is every where you go, that is till someone drugs you and him and drops you in the forest somewhere with the promise that you have 72 hours till he hunts you down and kills the both of you.

Lara and Noah have the fight of their lives and will need to work together to make it through, will they be able to work together to survive this lunatic that has them running for their lives, and will the survive till the end, and what will make your insides shiver is when Lara remembers who the man is that is trying to kill them.

This story, even writing about it still gives me the chills, it was so far out of my normal reading genre, and the fact that I can still remember the feelings I had while reading a week later it will be a while before I read a suspense book again. – Reviewed by Kendra

Dimitri lives to protect the secret of the Dragon Kings from the human race. Bound by a bond stronger than blood to the Kings, Dimitri uses his strength and prowess to defend a thousand-year-old secret. But when an oh-so-sexy, slightly absent-minded archaeologist wanders into his midst, Dimitri will have to give up his rules, and give in to desire...
When Dr. Faith Reynold stumbles upon an ancient skeleton that appears it comes from a dragon, she’s completely taken aback. A woman of science, there’s no way in her mind that this mythological creature can exist. But when a devilishly handsome man named Dimitri intercepts her path to uncovering the truth, Faith’s curiosity turns into all-consuming passion. She’s never felt this way about any man before. But when Dimitri reveals his biggest secret, can she learn to love the man—as well as the dragon within, in Firestorm, the next Dark Kings novel by New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

Faith has lived a lonely life and since her mom passed digging up history and fossils has become her life. For once she is excited about something that she discovered on Fair Isle …a dragon remains, but not everyone is happy about it.

On a faraway place called Dreagon where the Dragons kings live Con the King of the Dragon kings is worried because all dragons live or dead were to be removed from there so that the mortals would forget they existed. Con has decided that Dmitri will go as it was his home so it must be one of his dragons. What he doesn’t expect when he gets there is to be struck by his attraction to Faith and hers to him.

Faith doesn’t really date because it would just lead to heartache but something about this man has her twisted up in knots. When Dmitri decides instead of just destroying the dragon he will let Faith dig around a bit until mortals start to die at the hands of the Dark, a group of Fae that love you till your heart dies. When one of them pushes Faith to her death Dmitri is forced to show his Dragon form just to save her and risks discovery. When Faith realizes what he is it doesn’t change her opinion of him at all in fact the scientist in her wants to know more about the man and the dragon. When they decide to go back to Dreagon together and start to move the bones Dmitri gets a weird feeling that he can’t seem to shake and when they get to his home even weirder things begin to happen.

The book left me in a cliffhanger and I am not sure if more are coming or not but there is a lot more story to tell, and I am hoping Faith and Dmitri get a happily ever after. – Reviewed by Linda


Firestorm is the tenth installment of the Dark King series by Donna Grant.

Faith Reynolds is an archaeologist who has come across a dragon skeleton. For her this is a magnificent find. She would have shown her mother, who has always loved anything related to dragons, but isn’t able to now that she has passed away. Taking the find as a sign, she get’s protective of the skeleton.
Dimitri is not only immortal, but fierce Dragon. Many years ago, they all swore to keep their clan a secret from the humans. So, when he’s ordered to destroy evidence of the dragon skeleton he doesn’t hesitate, but when he finds the skeleton in the hands of a human, destroying the evidence is the last thing on his mind.

Donna Grant has created a magnificent world that will literally sweeps you away. With so many books, you’d think the story would get tiring, but it’s the opposite. Each book is like reaching a new level in a video game. Exciting, thrilling and incredibly stunning as you watch it all unfold.
In additional, the complexity of the storyline is so well crafted that it doesn’t take away from getting to know the characters

I can’t wait to see what else she has in store!

Highly recommend for those who enjoy fantasy and romance storyline. Even though this is part of a series, I didn’t feel like you need to read them in chronicle order.  – Reviewed by Julianne

Get ready for the ride of your life...
A cowgirl at heart, Skye Martinez has a rebellious streak she's determined to shake. Especially since she's poised to take the reins of her family's business at Briscoe Ranch Resort. It's time for her to settle down and get serious about her future...right after one last night of fun with a handsome stranger she meets in the resort's stable. But when a midnight horseback ride turns into a red-hot weekend with one of country music's biggest stars, Skye's world is rocked beyond her wildest dreams...
Gentry Wells rode his bad boy image all the way to the top of the country music charts. But churning out hits has dried up his creativity, and he can't remember the last time his life was his own. Skye is a sexy distraction he can't resist, especially since she breathes new life into his music. They bring out the wild side in each other, which is great for Gentry's career—but a major threat to Skye's. Too bad he's fallen in love with her. With their hearts and futures on the line, can Gentry convince Skye to turn their joyride into a real chance to ride off into the sunset together?

This is the third book in the Briscoe ranch series and I just love it because you feel like you know these people personally. Skye Martinez has always been a wild girl but her very conservative family has a few ideas about that. Skye took off when she was younger and married a guy from the circus who cheated on her just when she found out she was pregnant. She came home to her family and lost the baby a few weeks later and she has been trying to go on the straight and narrow ever since but one night she can’t take it and decides to go for a midnight ride where she meets Gentry who is there to play and sing at his managers daughters wedding.
Gentry has been in a slump and his last album failed so he is trying to find something to write about but when he meets Skye she is perfect because she treats him like he is just anybody. When Gentry talks her into letting him come for the ride his inspiration is at a peak and he can’t wait to write to make a song out of his experience on the ride. When he realizes he needs to see Skye again he catches her discussing his underwear with her employees and asks to see her. When they realize they can just have fun together because they aren’t going to get in a relationship but it’s never that easy. My favorite character was Gentry even though you would think he is such a bad boy but there is a lot more to him than you think. I love all of the books in this series but they can be read as a standalone. – Reviewed by Linda
