Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Broken Heart, Oklahoma, has become the epicenter for the supernatural, inhabited by vampires, lycanthropes, were-cats, and other beings. Some residents were made into vampires by accident, including Elizabeth Bretton. She came to town to check on her family’s abandoned mansion, which is now inhabited by Queen Patsy and her family. Being a vampire definitely has its benefits. Elizabeth loves not aging and living in the Victorian mansion until a secret room is discovered. Suddenly Elizabeth is confronted with a ghost that wants to kill her, the whole town is subject to a mysterious evil, and an amazingly attractive man appears. A rare were-jaguar, Tez Jones is invited to join the town were-cats, but he only wants to spend time with Elizabeth. The seventh book in Bardsley’s Broken Heart series is as fun and entertaining as the first, making it a must for fans and newcomers alike. --Patty Engelmann

About the Author

Michele Bardsley lives with her husband, their two children, and Her Highnesses Isis and Cleopatra, two of the most spoiled Bengal cats on the planet.

More About the Author

ABOUT MICHELE

National Bestselling Author Michele Bardsley is the author of the popular Broken Heart Vampire series and the Nevermore Wizards series. She also writes other books (such as romantic suspense AFTER MIDNIGHT, romantic comedy LOVE GONE WILD, humorous women's fiction SEX, DOUG, AND A ROCKY ROAD, and erotic romance FRISKY BUSINESS).

When Michele's not writing or "researching" (AKA staring at the shiny Internet), she loves watching "Supernatural," consuming chocolate, crocheting hats, and spending time with her husband (The Viking). She adores animals and is currently owned by four dogs and two cats.


COMING SOON

Michele continues to write the Broken Heart Holiday Tails (VALENTINE'S DAY SUCKS and HARRY LITTLE, LEPRECHAUN). The next story is called WEREWOLF KNOWS BEST and comes out in May 2014.

The Broken Arrow paranormal romance series (a spin-off from Broken Heart world featuring Greek goddess of love Aphrodite and crew) will kick-off with NAKED DISCLOSURE (late April 2014).

Summer 2014 will bring the next story in Nevermore Wizards series, NEVER SAY DIE. Readers can expect a variety of short stories, erotic romances, and other fiction as Michele mainly writes to avoid housework. (Oh, and to buy food, shelter, and kibble.)


FAQs

Q: What's your perfect writing moment?
A: When I write "the end" and the vodka bottle is empty. My face is usually smeared with chocolate, too, and my fingers are claws from typing so much. Also, I need a shower. But really. Perfect.

Q: What's your ideal day?
A: My ideal day is being tucked into bed with my puppies reading my Kindle or watching Netflix with my hubby. There may also be some canoodling.

Q: What's your favorite food?
A: Chocolate. It's really the only food.

Q: What are your favorite inspirational songs?
A: "Girl, I Love You" by Massive Attack and "Destiny" by Zero 7. And I like the Spongebob Squarepants theme song.

Q: What's your favorite quote?
A: "You are what you love, not what loves you." (From the movie "Adaptation")

Q: What do you find yourself "Fangirling" over?
A: The Winchesters, of course. (If I have to define that sentence further, we cannot be friends. I'm sorry. It's a rule.)

Just like her past books in this series, this book was fun to read.

Each book in this series has managed to pull me into the story from page one.

Just like her past books in this series, this book was fun to read. I work hard and enjoy books that let me relax and just enjoy the story line. This is one of those books.

If your looking for historical accuracy, intense characters, or the like....this is not your book.

If you just want a good read that is light hearted, with a little romance thrown in (don't forget the "Vampire" element)....then this will be fun.

B&N made a wondrous error and handed over my copy of Cross Your Heart the Thursday before its release. Wanna guess what I stayed up Thursday night doing? Take a WILD guess. Yeah, I was up until around 3am reading it straight through. I will go back in the near future and read through it slowly, but I can tell you now that Michele delivered - again - with her Broken Heart series.

The Setting - is still Broken Heart, Oklahoma. A few years have come and gone since everyone became undead and things are sort of settling into a normal routine of sudden-life-or-death and peace-and-quiet. This time around, you get more of a sense of where the town came from; those deep down roots behind why the town is cursed. You know what curse I'm talking about.

The Characters - oh Lord have mercy! It took me a little bit to get into the "hoity-toity" voice of cultured Elizabeth Bretton. I was so used to the sarcastic, down and dirty kind of women like Phoebe and Jessica that Elizabeth kinda threw me at the beginning. I had a scare two chapters in that, *gasp*, I might not like Elizabeth! Never fear. She wins you over though it's totally Tez you're rooting for. Come on, sexy smexy were-jag? And he goes all cave man to her social etiquette. It's a riot on the page. Other staples of the Broken Heart community appear, as well as some distant relations no one ever expected to visit.

The Plot - seven books into a series, a very connected series where each book builds off of another, you really have to wonder what else you can do? But Michele pulls it out of a hat in Cross Your Heart. I was a little skeptical when I read that it was a ghost story, kinda a mystery thing. Mysteries are okay, but I don't usually like them as much as adventure stories. However, there is so much of the history of Broken Heart twined around the mystery that it helps give the whole series a more grounded feel.

If you're looking for an light and fun paranormal romance, look no further!! "Cross Your Heart" is another great addition to the Broken Heart series by Michelle Bardsley. Elizabeth, a Turned Vampire, meets Tez, a were-jaguar and it's love and lust at first sight. Ghostly attacks, 100 year old bones, and town curses - it can all be found in "Cross Your Heart".

If you're looking for an enjoyable read, you found it in this book.

I have read the entire Broken Heart series and love it. If you want an entertaining, fun read with twists and turns this book, or the series, will not disappoint. The only negative is the wait until the next installment.

Michele Bardsley has continued her winning ways with Cross Your Heart. Another funny but oh, so sexy, "vampire meets her mate" book, but not your everyday mate. He's a jaguar! This was one of her better written stories because it has more plot and story behind the town of Broken Heart. Now that 5 years have passed since Broken Heart became paranormal we are getting to know more of the early history of the town. Can't wait for the next one.

knew that I was going to love this book from the minute I saw Dean Winchester of Supernatural quoted on the same page as a Walt Whitman. This was a fun and sexy romance that kept me giggling and wiggling. Book seven of The Broken Heart Series will not disappoint fans and most likely attract more to the quirky Oklahoma haven for paranormals. Elizabeth is a fantastic vampire lead character; she's a high-class heroine with an approachable humor. I understood her sadness over the fact she could never have children and I felt the entire issue was handled with care. I love Tez, his sexy sinewy body came in second only to his earthy conversation and witty banter. They don't get much more tall, dark and handsome then this were-jaguar. Once again I thoroughly enjoyed this authors causticness, she truly is a master of this art form. My favorite part of this book was the fact that we got to learn the history of the founding families of the town, this has been an intricate vein throughout the past books and I enjoyed the detailed information about the legend. I also appreciated that we got to meet the were-cats and I look forward to getting to know some of them better in upcoming offerings. I highly recommend picking this one up. - Theresa Joseph
