It has been almost a year since mankind became aware of the world in shadows. It's
been an adjustment, but life goes on and most have learned to adapt. There are some on both side that are not ready to let go of their plans. Madalaina Bonvillian believed nothing could harm her; she's the daughter of the former alpha and the sister of the current alpha, who would dare? After surviving a brutal attack, Madalaina must try to move forward, but where do you go when you feel like you've lost yourself?

Cleary Neil has kept his feeling for Madalaina to himself. He's been her friend, and now that's what she needs more than anything. The only problem is he can't shut off the part of himself that wants to protect his mate from the pain and confusion he sees in her.

Together they will go on an emotional journey to find out if love can heal all wounds. Time is of the essence, because enemies are gathering.
*Warning - this book begins with a non-graphic depiction of rape and torture that may be a trigger for some people*

Scarlet Fury is more than just a romance - it is Madalaina (Mads) story of coming out of a very bad mental place and finding herself in the darkness.  There are subtle and not so subtle lessons about life on every page and I really enjoyed watching her overcome.  I thought Blackwood did a brilliant job of showing the struggle and how hard it is to get your life back after an experience like this.

But this is a romance.  Cleary is perfect for Mads, but she's not sure she will ever be whole enough again to be worth his time.  He has to prove to her that it he wants her no matter what.  It was really quite beautiful.

We also get to see more into the political world of these paranormals and more about the over-all series story arc as well.  It was a great second story and this world is fascinating to read about.

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
