This is the first book in one of my Favorite Series’

Here is a copy of my review:

Lydia Michael doesn’t do easy or stereotypical romance novels. Sacred Waters was a wonderfully moving love story. I loved the McCullough family. Maureen the matriarch is a hoot of an Irish lady with the mouth of a sailor on leave. The two Marys were hilarious and the whole clan just makes you fall in love. But, Colin and Samantha? Damn! What is it that is so hot about forbidden romance?
The “sex” scenes in this book are like none you have ever read in romance before.I don’t want to give spoilers, so let’s just say, grab your tissues, a glass of wine and curl up with the McCullough gang. You won’t be sorry!

Spotlight and review- Prophecy’s Power- Brenda Dyer


He kidnapped her heart

For Natalie Tortelli, everything comes down to a hard-won fight. She’s survived an insane mother and a cold, indifferent foster care system. To stand apart from everyone and everything is to trust only in herself—and that suits her fine. But all that changes one night when she happens upon a handsome stranger, murdering another. To make matters worse, the killer takes her captive and claims he’s part of a vampire race that protects humans from demons. Caught in a dangerous world she doesn’t understand, Natalie has no choice but to trust in him. But her pride won’t allow her to fall for the sexy kidnapper.

She stole his soul

Soren from the Fourth Clan of vampires loves his life. With an endless supply of demons to fight, and willing women to share his bed, why wouldn’t he? Love is an emotion he cares nothing about. But the foundations of his philosophies are shaken to the core after he has to detain Natalie. She’s unlike any woman—vampire or human—he’s ever come across. When it comes time to let her go, he finds he doesn’t have the heart to release his wild and sexy captive.

The power of love binds them

Together, Soren and Natalie attempt to unravel the secrets that haunt her past—which might tie both of them to the vampire prophecy. Though their passionate relationship is more than either had expected, both hesitate to fully entrust themselves to one another. But if they don’t, death may be the only thing that unites them.



Diana’s Review

This author has created a world where it is imperative that Vampires and Humans coexist. The survival of the world as we know it depends on it. Following the prophecy will insure it.

Soren is a 100% sexy vampire. . . unfortunately . . . he is 98% arrogant ass as well. Natalie is one tough woman who owns her own drywall company, proud of her accomplishments. She is on her own, since her mom is locked up in the crazy bin. Then she witnesses Soren doing what he does best . . and sure it looks to Natalie like he just killed someone. On top of that, Soren can’t erase her memory of what she saw or of him.

So let’s recap. . . Soren, arrogant although sexy killer. Natalie, strong willed, proud, has a crazy mom, witnesses a murder.

Soren can’t erase Natalie’s memory, that should not have been a problem. Now he is stuck with her until he can figure out what to do.

The sexual tension between Soren and Natalie picks up as Soren tries to figure out what the hell is going on. Each time Natalie tries to get away from Soren . . . well the humor is not lost on this reader. Buy this book and see what happens. I have loved both the preceding books in this series and this one by far outshines the rest. The prophecy is going to pull you in and when you get to the other side of this awesome Vampire/Human/Demon series you will be wanting more. I know I do.

PS as an aside, Brenda Dyer, I will gladly volunteer to stake Ace for you. Just say the word. . .
