The third book in the erotic, dark paranormal fantasy series, Eye Of The Storm.

Lydia becomes ever closer to her three mates. However, with unrest all around, she is struggling to keep her wolves together for her first full moon, just twenty-four hours away.

A trip back home for Ryan could bring much needed support for them all, but at what cost?

As The Trident close in on Ryan's pack, the pack itself becomes divided over Lydia's presence and Lawrence is encouraged to return as the Alpha. But they don't know his secret, and he's doubtful of his ability to protect them. Can he fulfil his rightful role, or will his efforts prove fatal?

Meanwhile, among the arid plains of Egypt, in a long-forgotten city, one man is pitting himself against the beast inside him in order to find salvation, only to realise, so much more is at stake than his soul.

(Notes: Book three of a series - it is highly recommended that the books are read in order. This is an adult, paranormal fantasy containing scenes of explicit sexual content and some violence, entwined with romantic elements. Written in British English.)
Book One: Releasing the Wolf
Book Two: Cry of the Wolf

In book one we get to watch Lydia fall in love Ryan and are introduced to the werewolves of Surrey.  In book two we get to watch Lydia fall in love with Taylor and learn more about his very sad past.  In book three we get to know Lawrence better.  Lawrence is the hard ass that has been resisting the mating bond with Lydia throughout the series so far.  His past is incredible tragic - but Lydia knows that if she just keeps trying she can break through his walls and set him free - she hopes.

But all is not well in the Surrey pack.  Lydia's presence is causing rifts that lead to a few wolves making horrible decisions.  I really wanted to yell at them through the pages and tell them it just wasn't going to end well for them!  This book brought out a gazillion different emotions for me.  Please be warned that it is much darker compared to the first two and pushes the limits a few times, but it never really crosses any lines.

On top of the pack turmoil, the Trident is determined to take the pack out.  The side story of Amil from book two continues, but I'm not sure where she was going with it, but she definitely has me wondering what's going on with him.  I'm sure we'll find out more in book 4 (October 2014).  With the Trident's very clever plan falling into place, Dianna Hardy had my heart racing wondering if all my people were going to make it!!!  It was incredibly suspenseful and very memorable climatic scene.

At the end of the book I literally had to take a moment and just sit and think "Holy crap!"  This was a brilliant addition to the series and I am desperately wanting more.

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
