#Horror Book Recommendations from Natasha at @myreadingisodd & some #StephenKing Characters! | Fangirling & Spreading the Word

Natasha, of myreadingisodd, started this series--which probably will have more videos on her account at some point--about her recommending horror novels based on iconic Stephen King characters and what she feels they might enjoy reading. For the three videos I have seen thus far within this video series (which you can watch all below) I can wholeheartedly say I love her thoroughness and everything about each video! And that is coming me -- a girl who 90% of the time reads romance, watches horror films with a pillow in front of her face and thus far has only read one official horror novel. 🤣 Yet, with that being said, I do promote ANY kind of novel on here even if it's not what I read. Therefore I give you ... Natasha! 😀

Abandoned as a child on Christmas Eve, he has no use for the holiday season. When his best friend’s widow arrives in Glacier Creek, Montana, determined to give her small daughter the fairy-tale Christmas she’s dreaming of, Cole is prepared to dislike her.

"Wolf in her Soul" [Salvation Pack Series, Book 8] by N. J. Walters

Author's Book Description : Detective Reece Gallagher has spent the last decade working as a cop in Chicago so he can search for her--the red-haired woman who haunts his dreams. He's just about ready to give up and go home to Salvation, North Carolina, when he finally finds her. But she's the assault victim on a case he's working on, and there's a full-blooded werewolf who wants her dead. He needs to keep her safe and convince her she's his mate.

Hannah Burdette has a secret she's never told anyone. But there is someone who knows who--or rather, what--she is. There's a stalker after her who plans to rid the world of her "impure" blood. When the cop she meets turns out to be a werewolf and claims she doesn't have to be alone anymore, she's wary. But where better to hide from a bloodthirsty hunter than in the middle of North Carolina with the security of a pack surrounding her?

Each book in the Salvation Pack series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed in any order.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! About a decade ago, Reece dreamed of a woman that had red hair and who he needed to save. Therefore, he followed what his dream told him and moved away from his pack in North Carolina to Chicago where he became a detective. Yet, those years hit him hard by living in a city and being away from his family, so the day he decides to finally go back home for good he meets the woman from his dream, Hannah. She definitely needs his help as she has someone who wants to kill her. But are they both ready for all the new changes that fate has in store for them?

"A New Leash on Love" [Rescue Me Series, Book 1] by Debbie Burns

Author's Book Description : You can't buy love...but you can rescue it.

With her no-kill animal shelter at risk of losing funding, Megan Anderson is working doggedly to save the animals in her care. She'll do anything for them—even go toe-to-toe with a handsome man who's in way over his head.

Craig Williams has had his share of heartache recently, and he's not in the mood to get the guilt trip from a spirited (and beautiful) animal shelter owner. But the more time they spend together, the more he realizes it's not just animals Megan is adept at saving—she could be the one to rescue his heart.

Soon, Craig and Megan find that the magic of unconditional love can do anything...even lead to their forever home.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! A man (Craig) who is still coming to terms with the devastating loss that happened in his life years ago takes his daughter’s puppy to a local animal shelter at the wishes of said daughter and his ex-wife. From that moment on his life becomes unexpectedly intertwined with Megan, the Director of the animal shelter. Yet, especially with them both being so different, are they ready to try making something of their budding relationship or will fate take the choice out of their hands?

As a war widow, she's lost everything–her husband, her home, and her job. But when Will, a caring stranger, delivers her beautiful baby boy into her arms, she has hope for a brighter future.

After being betrayed and dumped by his long-time girlfriend, Will’s dreading the holidays, but when he helps deliver Mia’s son on Christmas morning, he gains a renewed purpose in life. The beautiful Mia and her child tug on his protective heart strings and he finds himself longing to help. They fight their growing attraction–Will’s on the rebound and Mia is still grieving. Will their reckless passion end in heartbreak?

Can two damaged hearts find healing and happiness? One Christmas baby might just be the miracle they need to love again.

My Book Review : DNF ... another one! 😞😱 I was REALLY enjoying this novel until their relationship took, yet again, a move that brought them closer but also "two more steps back" from where they needed to be and I couldn't take it anymore.

"Sicilian's Baby of Shame" [Billionaires & One-Night Heirs Series, Book 3] by Carol Marinelli

Author's Book Description : Seduced...

When hotel chambermaid Sophie delivers room service to Sicily’s most dark-hearted tycoon, Bastiano Conti, his raw sexuality tempts her to take the ultimate risk—surrendering her untouched body to his!

Shamed...

Bastiano’s ruthlessness is renowned, but even his conscience flickers when Sophie is fired for their indiscretion—the memories of which are branded onto his very soul—and disappears.

Pregnant!

Bastiano finds Sophie working in a bar—disgraced, destitute and pregnant! Rejected by his own family, Bastiano is determined to claim his child...by seducing defiant Sophie into wearing his ring!

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! This novel follows the same plot that Ms. Marinelli’s “The Innocent’s Secret Baby” did. Only this time the main male lead is Raul’s nemesis Bastiano. We follow how Bastiano has dealt with his past experiences and we FINALLY learn the truth about EVERYTHING. And within the midst of all of that, we watch as he starts a partial relationship with Sophie and how everything enfolds between them. Do they have the beginnings of something wonderful together or will it end in shambles too?
