His Dark Reflection

(Heart & Haven 03)
by

Heloise West

Disgraced FBI agent Nick Truman has failed to save his sister, held hostage by a drug cartel until he could give them Alex Crow, who eluded him. His epic downfall lands him in Witness Protection, where he plays by the rules and keeps to himself. But the murder of his neighbor brings danger to his door. He unexpectedly finds himself the champion of innocents and helplessly attracted to the homicide detective in charge of the case.

This can’t end well.

Homicide Detective Hank Axelrod is good at digging out secrets, maybe because he hides a big one of his own. He also suspects his husband has one foot out of the door of their marriage and the specter of single life looms unpleasantly on the horizon.

A murder resembling another brings Nick into his world, a man who claims to be a mystery writer looking for a real life resource. Hank’s instincts say he’s more than that, and he’s rarely wrong.

Torn between the errant soon-to-be-ex husband and the distracting, sexy stranger, Hank needs to focus all his attention on his murder case before he becomes the next victim.

Hitting Black Ice

(Heart & Haven 01)
by

Heloise West

ER physician’s assistant Hunter guards his heart carefully, but that doesn’t stop him from falling for Shawn, the front desk clerk. He keeps his distance from relationships for a reason, but just can’t help himself when it comes to Shawn.

Shawn is on the run from the law and love to protect himself and anyone else involved. One man is dead because of him, and his life now is simple and easily thrown into a bag at any hint of danger. Until he meets Hunter, and he no longer wants to run.

Forced into a hostage situation, buried passion explodes in the aftermath, and sex in the supply closet brings their hearts back to life. Tentatively, step by step they begin to explore a relationship together until the past catches up with Shawn.

FBI agent Nick Truman has finally found his man, but when Shawn escapes, he focuses his attention on Hunter. Shawn returns, even though it means sacrificing himself to save Hunter from the man who framed him for murder.

(Heart & Haven 02)

When Hunter and Alex (formally Shawn) are given the vacation of a lifetime, it’s a chance for them to pay attention to romance and get out of the path of danger. The tiny Caribbean island of Saba is gorgeous, the first to have marriage equality, and the Sabans are the nicest people on earth.

There’s lots of rum poolside for relaxing and a room with a mirror on the ceiling for passion. Hot karaoke nights, cold beer, and new friends.

Their new friends Orfeo and Max, and Max’s sister Talisha, share a troubling secret. Alex and Hunter want to help. As a hurricane bears down on them, a dead body surfaces, and a purple backpack loaded with stolen jewels leads a gang of dangerous men to the island.

Alex would rather poke his own eyes out with a pointy stick than call on his old enemy Nick Truman for help; he’d also do anything to keep Hunter out of danger. But even his old nemesis can’t reach them now.

Once again, they only have each other to depend on as their paradise is about to become hell on earth.

In order to save it, he sells valuable heirlooms, but he is running out of silverware. Somewhere in the villa, his deceased father has hidden the art treasures that will pay the debt—but Salvesto can’t find them anywhere.

Amadeo Neruccio has been on the run from the vicious pimp, thief, and pawnbroker Guelfetto, whose toughs finally catch him and bring him to the cellar where Count Masello is selling off his silver. When the count learns what fate Guelfetto has in store for Amadeo, he intervenes, and trades the last of his mother’s dowry for the young man’s freedom.

Salvesto left home over ten years ago to live the life of adventure he craved and leave his broken heart behind. When he rescues Amadeo, he does not expect to find love again—or the start of his next adventure.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is a rather enjoyable historical fiction about a Count, Salvesto, with heavy debts and the young man, Amadeo, he finds along the way. This is the type of book that I would normally love, but I feel that the rather awkward writing style. Sometimes I felt a bit muddled when, to use a phrase, five words were used when only one would do. Other than that, this is a real enjoyable adventure, somewhere between swashbuckling heroes, scandal in the Court and summer in the country.

Salvesto arrives home to find the family estate in debt and in dire straits. He’s desperate to pay off the debts and though he is guilty about selling the family heirlooms he knows he will feel even worse if he loses the estate. The crook/thief/loan shark that he is selling off his heirlooms to also happens to be after another man for his debts, Amadeo.

It’s rather complicated but Amadeo ends up with Salvestro. The story is really about these guys getting along and Amadeo be rehabilitated from his wicked ways. There isn’t a particularly large amount of romance in the story but what there is reflects a wonderful tension between the two with a bit of “will he or won’t he?” going back and forth. Salvestro and Amadeo are both likable characters, I would have just liked to see more complexity come out of them.

I don’t normally comment on covers but this one I have to because I feel that this one is a bit misleading. The historical looking building and the rather smouldering looking gents on the front is not my issue, I think that’s great.

I just feel that the horses on the cover are rather misleading because I thought, “hey, maybe the guy likes horses”. No such luck, though one MC does own a horse. Then again, I suppose you aren’t meant to judge a book by its cover.

Most people who enjoy historical fiction will enjoy this one, especially since it’s in a rather picturesque area of Europe – then it was called Siena, now it is part of Spain.
