Rating: 5 out of 5
Heat Level: Erotic

Here is the Blurb from the book:

Born of a Navajo healer and high level prince of Hell, The Dine Gods demanded Fatal be turned over to her mother's tribe to learn their healing arts and kept away from demon hands. But with her tutelage, came cruel segregation and disrespect because of her father's heritage. Unknowing why her life has suddenly come under demon attack, Fatal sets out, armed with her knowledge and her fighting skills, to take out any evil that gets in her way.

Prince of a lower Hell level, a contract was signed in blood that Orobus be betrothed to Fatal, a High Level Prince's half-breed daughter. Oracle by birth, he isn’t privy to complete visions when regarding him. Having forgotten the fateful night he signed the agreement, he’s thrust into the fight of his life—the fight to claim his woman! Come Hell or High water, he will take care of what is rightfully his, even if it means making her face both sides of her heritage and teaching her there is no shame.


Fatal, who was born half demon from a Navajo Mother, struggles to learn about the other half of her heritage. Separated from her parents at birth, shunned and made to leave the only life she has ever known, Fatal goes out on her own only to be plagued with demon attacks. She will do anything to survive.

Orobus, a prince of Hell, commands his legions and his private club "Demonic Persuasion". He waits for the day that his mate will come back to him, little does he know that she will walk into his club, right under his nose and be put under her spell. Then she walks right back out of his life. Will he ever find her again?

Soon Fatal is forced to face the man she left months ago. Once Orobus finds Fatal he won't let her get away again. All Fatal wants is to be left alone to the only life she knows but Orobus is determined to make her let go of the past and let him in. But will someones betrayal ruin all they have worked for???

This is a story of hardship, love, happiness and understanding. I LOVED this book. It has action, love, betrayal and best of all hot adult scenes. Once you start the book you can't put it down. It pulls you in from the beginning and you don't want it to end. I would love to see this book made into a series or a full length novel. There is sooo much to take in that the story keeps you hoppin'. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal romance with a very erotic twist. This is the first book I have read from Mahalia Levey but I can guarantee you that it won't be the last!!!



Blog Help???

Okay, I am trying to set up a system for my reviews.  Alot of sites use hearts, tombstones and coffee cups.  I was thinking of diamonds or clovers/shamrock or maybe a small angel or fairy.  maybe roses/daisies or a owl even...   It is a booky theme on my page so I would like it to go with it but I don't think 4 out of 5 A's sound right or even apples (thinking of a school teacher for some reason on that one, lol)

Here are a few more we are thinking about... (girls) goats, unicorns, wands, dragons, fangs, swords, frogs, crosses, books (magical books) or gems a opal, ruby, diamond, sapphire, turquoise(?) etc...  there are more but I will spare you lol

I also am going to come up with a link that you can use so that when you want to link your page to my review, the graphic will always show up.  Any suggestions???  I like my book theme but I would like something original and that will stand out and be noticed.  Thank you for helping...

Montana Dawn by Caroline Fyffe

Montana Dawn by Caroline Fyffe
Published 08/20/2010
Publisher- Leisure Books
Historical romance
ISBN-13: 978-0-8439-6427-1
5 stars
low heat rating

** spoiler alert **
I love historical books but my favorites are usually set in the middle ages. I made an exception with this book. It has action, adventure, suspense and of course romance, everything a person could want.

Faith, a pregnant widowed, with a son sets off accross the wilderness on the run from the family of her abusive husband. She gets stuck and goes into labor only to have Luke,a man on a cattle drive find her and help deliver her baby. Faith thinks if she goes with the cattle drive that she will be safe and able to hide from her inlaws but will she lose something during the cattle drive, something she has never given to a man, her heart???

Luke find Faith ready to give birth in the middle of a storm, in a bogged down wagon, with a young son in tow. Luke decides he can't leave the young mother out on the plains defenseless, so he takes her with him to finishe the cattle drive to his families ranch. Luke is just trying to be a good person and help a young widow and mother in need but will he get more than he barginned for???

When Faith's brother-in-law shows up, Luke sees she is scared and he knows something is wrong. Faith tells him not to trust Ward, something tells him he should listen but when Ward helps save his brother from drowning, he feels obligated to the man. Luke's family loves Faith and the children but does Luke and Faith have feelings for each other? Will this all come back to bite Luke later on or is Faith wrong and Ward isn't as bad as she says???

All I can tell everyone is that even if Westerns aren't a normal read for you, give this book a try you will not be disapointed. I wil be keeping this book on my shelf to reread later on. I don't normally do that with any book but Montana Dawn is a definate exception. It has something for everyone!!!
