The lights shut off, except those on the helm, casting eerie blue shadows on their faces. Tru’s apprehension rose as she tested her shoulder harness and fidgeted in her seat. She looked to him, and drew strength from his rock-solid presence. She didn’t know much about solar storms-- only enough to be frightened. She clutched the armrest.
“Impact in three, two...” Siren intoned matter-of-factly.
The invisible wave hit them and electrical sparks flashed over the ship’s nose, coming at them with terrifying swiftness. Blistering shocks pulsed along her skin and nerves felt as if they were on fire, burning her up from the inside out.
“Shields strong, life support holding,” Siren continued.
The ship bucked and lurched, snapping Tru’s head forward then back.
“Siren, how long until we’re out of the storm?” Nick demanded, while he continued to monitor the power to the shields and make rapid adjustments only he understood.
The ship’s engine groaned and metal screeched from the force of the storm. Lights flickered on the helm, sparks flying from wires affected by the solar pulses battering them.
“Hang on, Tru. We’re almost through,” he assured her while he swiftly rerouted connections.

The Demon Side and The Human Side by Heaven Liegh Eldeen Review ~Kami

The Demon Side (The Demon Side #1)


The Demon Side (The Demon Side #1)

Etta and her father move into a house where a demon, Rahovart is trapped. Etta can see demons and her family thinks she is mentally ill. Etta is being tormented by a different demon. Rahovart first tries to scare the family to leave but finds it difficult since Etta can see and hear him. He becomes sympathetic to Etta's plight. I thought this was a very well written, fast read. The demon, Rahovart strangely enough cares for Etta. I found the characters really intriguing. I was compelled to keep reading to find out more about Rahovart. 5 stars.  

The Human Side (The Demon Side #2)

by Heaven Liegh Eldeen

One year later and Rahovart can't seem to stay away from Etta. Rahovart is sent to Earth as a human without any powers to win the heart of Etta. Two angels posing as human beings was pretty funny. Etta is still being tormented by demons but she has no memory of knowing Rahovert and he can't tell her who he is. I wasn't liking this one as much as the first one. I didn't like the awkward, unsure of himself Rahovart. Things started getting really exciting in the last 30 pages. “So, good girl is going to kill the good/bad guy with the help of the real good guys, who the good/bad guy assumes the good girl thinks are bad guys.” 4 stars.

 On her darkest day twelve years ago, she agreed to give her baby up for adoption.  Now, on her daughter’s birthday, a chance encounter gives Savannah an opportunity to explore a corner of her heart she thought was lost forever.
Rob Sinclair a renowned surgeon and NY Times best-selling author has a new release and needs a promo spot on the television show, The News Stop.  When Savannah gets to conduct the interview over the senior reporter, a door opens to her future.  However, first she must face the unsettled issues in her life, before she is free to accept love.
The last thing she wants is a relationship, especially one with a divorced, doctor who happens to have two small children.
A man, who seems all wrong for her, slowly weaves himself into her heart.  Can he accept her when he learns about her past?

Savannah and Rob’s strong attraction is undeniable as they journey to a place where honesty and the power of forgiveness, can guide them both home. Will it be enough to heal the scars of the past and allow them another chance for love?


Rob slowly approached her. The look in his eyes told her he had more than the view on his mind. Savannah turned away, afraid of what might happen next. Before she could stop him, they were too close for comfort. An electric energy surged between them. With one swift movement, Rob reached for her and gently placed his lips on hers. He cradled her head in his hands as if she was a precious jewel. The warmth of his touch sent shivers down her spine and the world stood still. When Rob’s hands moved slowly across her back, her body went limp and it took her to a level of arousal she never expected. It all happened so quickly, she didn’t have time to react. She found herself spellbound by the feel of his rock hard body pressed up against her chest. All of the emotions she’d kept inside emerged when Rob held her tight. When they finally parted, Savannah stood frozen in shock with her heart pounding and her ears ringing.
Rob’s expression made him look as if he broke the law. He quickly took a step back. “I don’t know what to say. I’m so sorry for my rude behavior.”
 “You weren’t rude. I didn’t stop you.”
 “I don’t know what got into me. You’re an amazing woman and I find you terribly attractive.” He stared deep into her eyes.  
“Thank you.” Savannah looked down, still shocked, but flattered.

The Last Execution by Jerrie Alexander Spotlight ~Kami



The Last Execution


The Last Execution
Jerrie Alexander
Release Date: June 7th, 2013

To survive, she must put the past behind her. To love, she must learn to trust.

Homicide detective Leigh McBride's first assignment with the FBI brings her face-to-face with a past she's tried hard to forget. And when her temporary partner, a cynical ex-marine, lights a fire in her she thought long-extinguished, her darkest secret is threatened.

Scarred both physically and emotionally, Special Agent J. T. Noble is a man of few words. He prefers to keep people at a distance—until he meets Leigh. He's attracted to her strength and drawn in by her secrecy. But in their line of work, secrets can be deadly.

When the killer they are hunting aims his vigilante justice at Leigh's past assailant, the fine line between right and wrong blurs. To heal the past—and find their future together—Leigh and J. T. must learn that only through trust and forgiveness can love grow.

The six-year-old missile launched himself into the air, giving J.T. two choices. Catch the kid, or let him fall to the ground like a deflated football. J.T. grabbed him and held Ethan out in front, as he would a wet, smelly dog.
                Leigh jogged down the sidewalk, sparks flashing from her eyes. She pulled her son out of J.T.’s grasp and plopped the kid down at her feet. She knelt and got right in his face. J.T. made a mental note to not piss her off.
                “What have I told you about running out the door?”
                Ethan’s head bowed. “Don’t even think about it.” He stared at the tops of his bare feet.
                “Obviously, you didn’t listen.” She tugged the knot at the back of her head tighter before she looked up. “Sorry about the attack.”
                “Kid’s a natural born high jumper.” J.T. stuffed his hands in his pockets. She’d wadded her hair in the old-lady-school-teacher-bun-thing she wore at work. Probably just as well. If she’d left all that blond silk loose and sexy, he might’ve thought this was a date or something, which it wasn’t. Him being here was entirely the fault of his own big mouth.
                “Please.” She waved a hand toward the wide-open front door. “We were about to come and get you.”
                “You knew I was here?”
                “A black Corvette rumbling around in our neighborhood doesn’t go unnoticed.”
                Dressed in blue jean shorts and a thin-strapped top exactly the same blue as her eyes, Leigh looked more like a model than a mom. J.T. was glad he’d worn a T-shirt and Wranglers.
                His chest double-clutched and pulled a weird stutter step when a small hand gripped two of his fingers and two small feet shuffled hurriedly to keep up with him. Tonight was a mistake.

The author of THE GREEN-EYED DOLL, and THE LAST EXECUTION, Jerrie and her husband live in Texas. She loves sunshine, children’s laughter, sugar (human and granulated), and researching for her heroes and heroines.
