1.2

Title: A Subtle Breeze (Southern Spirits #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Bailey Bradford – Pride Publishing
Publication Date & Length: August 31, 2015 – 125 pgs

Synopsis

Ezekiel Matthers and Brendon Shanahan are about to find out that sometimes all it takes is a subtle breeze to shift the winds of fate.

Ezekiel Matthers is a reclusive man, forcing himself into the exile of his ranch after a violent assault left him wounded. While the scars on the outside have faded, the damage inside is much harder to conquer. Zeke resigns himself to a solitary existence, aside from his sister Enessa and, of course, his mama’s occasional visits.

Brendon Shanahan has a very meddling cousin, Gloria, who is best buds with Enessa Matthers. When the two women convince Brendon that he should hook-up with the reclusive Zeke, a plan is hatched that sets a series of events into motion – with potentially deadly consequences.

Can Ezekiel conquer his fears and accept what Brendon is offering? Or will Brendon walk away, giving up on the love he has waited for? And will the visits from Zeke’s mama – deceased for four years now – help the two men find their way to each other?

Only time will tell, and that may be the one thing the lovers don’t have, because someone is out to destroy everything Zeke and Brendon hold dear – and this time, the bad guy just might succeed.

Poor Zeke to have what happened to him by someone who should have been supportive no matter what just because they were a mean and vindictive person.  I really liked Zeke’s character in this book and how he was stronger by the end of this when he realized there was people who would be there for him.
Brendon I really liked him too.  He was strong for Zeke from the get go and wanted to be there for him to help him through everything that happened.
Now this book has some very hot Scenes from the get go.. A lot of really hot scenes which usually I am not a fan of but in this novella it works.
Once you find out who is behind everything you feel anger and sick to your stomach because without saying who did it and giving away spoilers, you can’t help thinking what a “insert bad word here”.  So not a fan of that person!
I can’t be the only one that finds it so sweet that his ghost visitor is who it is and still visits him too makes sure he is okay.  I loved the paranormal aspect to this story too!
All together I really liked this Novella and would definitely recommend it!

This was a very good start to the series.  It was a sweet read.  The only thing I found a little unbelievable is that they didn’t hardly have a conversation and they were having sex. You think they could have gotten to know each other first, (laughing).

I liked Brendon for how caring he was to Zeke when he needed it the most. Zeke on the other hand was a little harsh to Brendon, trying to push him away. The chemistry between the two did improve as the story went on.

I did love the twist to the story with the scent they kept smelling. I am anxious to read the next installment, maybe it will be about the Sheriff.

TWO 4 Stars for When the Dead Speak (Southern Spirits #2) by Bailey Bradford #MM #Paranormal @PridePublishing

1.2

Title: When the Dead Speak (Southern Spirits #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Bailey Bradford – Pride Publishing
Publication Date & Length: August 31, 2015 – 125 pgs

Synopsis

The only way to stay alive is to listen when the dead speak…

Sheriff Laine Stenley thinks he might just be losing his mind. Ever since he’d encountered the spirit of his friend’s deceased mother, strange things have been happening. His sheriff’s tin star keeps popping off, his Stetson tends to fly off his head at the most inconvenient times—and then there are the subtle caresses that remind him of a lover’s touch… Something Laine has been without for years—since the violent murder of his partner—and figures to be without well into the future if he wants to retain his position as the sheriff in the small town of McKinton, Texas. Laine doesn’t want to risk his career or his heart ever again, but he may not have a choice, not if he wants to stay alive.

A man who listens to spirits, Severo has come to McKinton to deliver a message of danger. One look at the sexy sheriff and Severo finds himself in a different sort of danger. He’s not ready to find a man who can claim him heart, soul, and body, but ready or not, the attraction that simmers between them is undeniable—and irresistible.

Together, they will race against time, because something evil is coming to McKinton. Severo and Laine must learn to trust each other—and themselves— and listen when the dead speak.

The Southern Spirits series

There’s nothing quite like a Southern drawl or Southern charm—and nothing so loyal as a Southern spirit.

On the surface, McKinton, Texas seems like the stereotypical small town, USA. Smiling faces greet you everywhere you go, and people are quick to lend a helping hand. Most people, that is. Then there’s the ones who let hate rule their lives, who are controlled by their own twisted passions, who are determined to hurt and destroy.

Only love can withstand and triumph over such hatred, but sometimes, even love needs a helping hand. There’s something in McKinton that stands ready; Southern Spirits that intervene at the worst and best of times. With their humor, charm, and death-defying love, these spirits.

Laine the sheriff can’t come out for fear of being fired from his job by the people in town.  His is such a strong character after losing someone he loved, then  working through that while having a stalker and a ghost pulling pranks on him trying to tell him something important.  I really liked his character!
Then there was Sev who can communicate with ghosts and came to town when something pushed him telling him he needed to be there.  He is more of a hook ups only kind of guy until he meets Laine and then its love at first site.  There was just something about Laine that drew him in.
You get a lot of mystery while they track down his stalker and you get to see a lot of Zeke and Brendon which I loved! Plus you get introduced to a few more new characters in this book also.
Altogether I really liked this book!  I would definitely recommend this book!

I really liked this book. I’m really enjoying this series it has me hooked.

I love that the characters from the last book are included once again in this book. I loved the Sheriff and  Sev together as a couple.  Once again it was an instant love romance, but I thought it just worked with these two. I also enjoyed reading the loyalty that is growing among the friends.

I’m loving the paranormal parts of the book. It makes a nice twist to the story.
So far both books were wrapped up very nicely at the end, I hate when the story stops and you are left wondering what happens next, these books have nice epilogue’s.
