Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes @DisneyHyperion @jenlynnbarnes

Killer Instinct (The Naturals, #2)
Release date: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Genre: YA Thriller/Suspense 
Series: The Naturals #2

Seventeen-year-old Cassie Hobbes has a gift for profiling people. Her talent has landed her a spot in an elite FBI program for teens with innate crime-solving abilities, and into some harrowing situations. After barely escaping a confrontation with an unbalanced killer obsessed with her mother’s murder, Cassie hopes she and the rest of the team can stick to solving cold cases from a distance.

But when victims of a brutal new serial killer start turning up, the Naturals are pulled into an active case that strikes too close to home: the killer is a perfect copycat of Dean’s incarcerated father—a man he’d do anything to forget. Forced deeper into a murderer’s psyche than ever before, will the Naturals be able to outsmart the enigmatic killer’s brutal mind games before this copycat twists them into his web for good?

With her trademark wit, brilliant plotting, and twists that no one will see coming, Jennifer Lynn Barnes will keep readers on the edge of their seats (and looking over their shoulders) as they race through the pages of this thrilling novel.



My Rating: 5 Roses

With thrilling mystery, intriguing secrets, and a touch of romance, Killer Instinct was a brilliant YA read. I was hooked from page 1 and kept on the edge of my seat the entire way through. It was a sequel that managed to top the first and I enjoyed every bit of it. Loved this book!

Release date: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: YA Historical (Ancient) Romance

In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart.

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying.

With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.

Release date: October 7, 2014
Publisher: Kensington: Zebra
Genre: Historical (Highlander) Romance
Series: Spirit of the Highlands #2


A wife may be courted, too…

Many would count Katherine Douglas fortunate indeed. Laird William Douglas is broad-shouldered, gentle-handed, everything a lass could dream. But after four years of marriage, Katherine still knows little of what goes on in his heart. And she has yet to bear him an heir. The distance between them is too great—and so she flees over the snowy highlands to Glengarry Castle, home of her childhood, to set her husband free.

But William won’t let his wife slip away without a fight. Before long, he’s at her father’s threshold himself, witness to the rumbles of discontent in Glengarry, the bright joy of Yuletide at a family hearth, and the hidden needs of his own beloved…



My Rating: 3 Roses

An emotional and sweet romance, Once Upon a Plaid was an enjoyable holiday read. With a couple struggling through a vast emotional distance and a would-be heir stirring up trouble, this book was a lovely read that I quite liked.
