Review RetroCog by Marie Harte

Title: RetroCog
Author: Marie Harte
Source: Self purchase
Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance
Length: Novel




 A casualty of funding wars and an overzealous Defense Department trying to clean up its reputation after several failed experimental programs, the Psychic Warfare Program (PWP) is scrapped in the throes of its infancy. Its participants are transferred to other defense agencies, but a few decide to leave the government behind, knowing full well their freedom hinges on keeping a low profile and living under the radar.Ex-PWP agent Noah First is grudgingly settling into life as a civilian when his boss assigns him one of those cases, like the ones he used to do for the government. Given the job of tracking down a stolen painting, Noah finds more than he bargained for when murder is involved. It's his power to see the past in places where emotions run high, and when he tracks the painting down to a touristy mining town, he lands in serious trouble.

Not only does the town's history shout at him with his every step, but he learns firsthand the room he's renting used to be in a bordello, and the inn's manager is the spitting image of the sexy woman in the painting. Noah is increasingly drawn to her, and to the dark needs he normally keeps buried. But are his intense feelings for Lara real, or just an echo of the past? And when he finds the painting, can he take it back to its rightful owner when someone in town will do whatever it takes to keep it, including murder?








Wow, I loved this book.  I've been on a bit of a Mary Harte kick lately; tearing my way through the Circe's Recruits, Dawn Endeavor, and ,now, PowerUP! series.  (They're all loosely tied together)  I haven't reviewed any of them thus far because sometimes Ms. Harte can get downright dirrrty.  I'm no prude but I think I've been carrying around a perpetual blush since starting these books about a week ago :)  BUT I just loved Retrocog so much I had to share.

Noah First is a retrocrog, it's the opposite of a precog.  He sees visions of the past.  His boss has set him on a task to find a painting that's been stolen and may or may not have psychic properties.  When he arrives in Brownville, Arizona he's bombarded with scenes of the past.  He checks into the Lady Fine Inn and there he meets Lara, the inn manager.  Lara's a little quirky in her own right. She's been hearing the voices of the dead since she was a child.  Together they  unravel the secrets of the past, track down a serial killer, and fall in love.

Sheesh, what can I say? I just fell in love with Noah's character.  He's a passionate guy who's lost his way.  Written off since childhood as crazies because of their psychic gifts Lara and Noah have so much in common.  Their instant attraction had me melting.  Not to mention when things start to get physical. YUM. Noah's visions of the past were so well written; it was easy to imagine the old west town. Ms. Harte has a talent for writing a great story with heat :)

*Is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone*

*This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: some light bondage and D/s, and violence*

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
