About the book:
Death is sad, love is agony.
Max was her next job. She got his name just before he died and it was for her to lead his soul to heaven. She was a Bringer.
Then Max started pleading (as they often do), but not for himself, for his son, James.
Would she look after him, would she comfort him as he grieved for the loss of his father? James was a sensitive young man. He would take his father's death very hard.
Well, Bringers don't do that sort of thing; their exclusive role is to usher souls to heaven. They are not allowed to get involved in earthly affairs.
However, when she saw James, she felt something she had never felt before - an emotion, a shock.
She was a Bringer. Bringers do not have emotions.
Yet she couldn't help herself. She found herself being drawn inexorably towards James and his life, against every instinct she had ever had, against every law of the universe.
And she fell in love.
For a Bringer, that is a terrifying fall.
The Bringer was a very quick and easy read. The beginning lacks emotion understandably due to the fact that Lucyna is unable to feel. Although, as the story continued I just didn’t feel it. While this was a very inventive storyline the story itself just couldn’t grab me. In the end I can say that I enjoyed it, and it did prove to be a sweet love story. Though it is nothing that knocked my socks off, and will be easy to move on.

About the book:
All Joss wants is to be left alone—with Dylan. But as more Talents are imprisoned by the government, everyone’s looking for a leader. Some look to Joss, some to Marco whose new criminal plan threatens Joss’s family and friends. Joss wants to stand up to Marco, but Dylan’s protective instincts are putting him in harm’s way. Can Joss find a way to embrace both the boy and her hero within?
a longer version...
In the world of the Talents, kids with supernatural powers are condemned to government research facilities from which they do not return. For a Talent, the most important thing is keeping the secret…
--Six weeks ago, Dylan Maxwell slugged it out with his best friend. Over a girl.
But Marco had it coming. After all, it looked like he was going to use his supernatural strength to kill Joss Marshall. That should have been the end of it, but Marco’s got bigger plans for crime in Fairview than Dylan ever understood. This time he’s going after the town’s merchants with a crime wave that threatens Joss’s family’s business and all the Talents’ secrets.
--Six weeks ago, Joss Marshall was alone.
Now there’s Dylan. It’s not always comfortable being just friends with the guy she’s had a crush on forever. And the more she learns about the boy with the easy smile, who always seems to know what to say, the more she learns how much they have in common. He’s so much more than she understood, and so much more than she could stand to lose.
That was then, this is now.
And now, everything changes.
Joss is a kick ass character that gained a lot respect from readers with nature leaders and heroine persona that was revealed Hush Money. Hereos ‘til Curfew offers the same action packed and powerful read that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. As the romance between Joss and Dylan accelerates in this book readers will relish in the developments that were lacking in Hush Money.

As desperate times call for desperate measures they will find themselves closer to be discovering discovered than ever before. Now they will have to decide if they have the power to be on the offensive and protect themselves. The ending of Heroes ‘til Curfew will wrap up the story we began in Hush Money, as well as, set building blocks for more.
