“It’s official…I’m a fan.  Mercy is just my type of girl.” ~Under the Covers

It’s official…I’m a fan.  Mercy is just my type of girl.  She always wants to do the right thing, no matter the cost to herself.  She’s kick ass, she gets into trouble, she goes after what she believes in.  Now if only we could get her to see things straight from the very beginning…

In this book, Mercy is working as a bartender when her old army buddy, Jason, comes into town looking to convince people to put an oil pipeline through their ranches.  And then, Mercy’s life being always so messed up, she finds his dead body outside the bar one night.  When no one cares about this, and the sheriff won’t investigate, she starts taking matters into her own hands.  Doing the investigative work, and even running for sheriff herself.  After all, it was her dad’s job before.

Things of course get more complicated as she delves into the whys and hows of her buddies’ death…even more so when another army buddy of hers, Anna, comes into town looking for revenge.

As always, Mercy is awesome.  Maybe even more so in this book because she doesn’t have as many issues as she did in book one, at least in my opinion.  Then there’s the Native American element.  I think Ms. Armstrong does an amazing job at weaving in the culture of the place into the story and making it also an important part of how the story develops.  You really feel as if you were there.

And then there’s the actual story.  Always full of suspense and just a small dash of sexy.  I really like the way Ms. Armstrong surprises me with Mercy’s stories go.  I can’t wait to be surprised again in the next one.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
