She creates a world that is unique and intriguing.
There is also a very interesting twist to the story, that I would love to but can't divulge...

The sensual and thrilling Scions series continues in Insurrection by Patrice Michelle.

PI Landon Rourke has lived his life separate from his pack, he is the typical lone wolf. He does have a few close friends but no one really touches his soul unlike Kaitlyn. Landon has always watched over Detective Kaitlyn McKinney. He is drawn to her and feels the need to protect her.

Detective Kaitlyn McKinney is a straight arrow, she has followed her dad into the job of protecting and serving the public. Responding to a police call late one night she runs into Landon. Something about this man calls to her and she can no longer fight the all consuming attraction she feels.

Landon and Kaitlyn join forces when there are unexplainable murders in and around the city. One Kaitlyn becomes a target Landon will put aside everything to keep her safe. Kaitlyn has for a long time depended on herself and its so tempting to let Landon shelter her. Their attraction explodes with a passion neither realized was between them. But will Kaitlyn feel the same way when some secrets Landon is keeping are revealed.

Patrice Michelle draws you into the world of werewolves and vampires like no other author. She creates a world that is unique and intriguing. Landon and Kaitlyn journey to love and understanding is sensual and moving. I can't wait to find out what is around the corner for this series.

A CK2S Recommended read!

Police Detective Kaitlyn McKinney has been called out on her first real case as detective to investigate a burned body in a local park. When she gets there, she discovers this body is nothing like she has ever seen before. It looks vaguely humanoid but what is it?

Landon Rourke suffers daily for a mistake he made several years ago, and his self imposed penance is to play secret guardian to Kaitlyn. A long ago prophecy stated there would someday be peace between vampires and Lupreda - werewolves. This murder throws darkness on the pending outcome of that prophecy. Now he and Kaitlyn are working together to find answers and he begins to see the destiny laid out for him. What will Kaitlyn do when she discovers the terrible truth Landon hides?

Landon and Kaitlyn's story is incredibly emotional, heart wrenchingly beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes, at least three times, as discoveries were made. Landon feels so guilty over past events that watching him finally come to terms with what happened, and learning to forgive himself makes for an incredible story. Kaitlyn has her own secrets, not quite understanding why she has these special gifts, but when she learns the truth about her heritage, everything finally makes sense and she is stunned at what is uncovered. Landon and Kaitlyn are two halves of one whole, and neither can find peace with their pasts until they come together. Their relationship also awakens long buried feelings and when they give in to their attraction, fireworks are sure to explode.

Patrice Michelle is winning me over with her fascinating Scions trilogy. I loved Resurrection and I think I love Insurrection even more!

Patrice Michelle has been an "auto-buy" for me ever since I discovered her "Kendrian Vampire" stories in eBook, (along with her "Bad in Boots" cowboys, yum! ;-P).
Amazingly, she ups the bar with each book she writes. I'm pleasantly surprised how each book is better than the last, when she was so strong to begin with!

Both the hero and heroine in SCIONS: INSURRECTION are appealing and multi-dimensional with awesome depth of character. Landon is an unbelievably alpha, sexy, and intense Were- yet his feelings of guilt and his fear for his mate make him more human. He is my favorite kind of alpha, the kind that is always on the edge of out of control, and loves and cares for his woman above all else. Kaitlyn is truly clever, witty, and incredibly (but not foolishly) brave, even when she discovers she is more than she ever thought was even possible...
The chemistry between the two sets the pages on fire and the verbal exchanges are engaging, absorbing, sensual, and laugh-out-loud funny at times. The emotional obstacles they had to overcome were very real, and their reactions believable. This was a very fast paced read that blew me away with its creativity, and the sensuality that is rife between Landon and Kaitlyn.
Wonderfully, there was never a clichéd transformation in Landon or in Kaitlyn, I didn't feel like they fell in love only because she was his mate and they're genetically "destined" for each other, (unfortunately that is a sensation I am left with in a lot of Were stories). I totally enjoyed Patrice's previous book in the SCIONS: series, but in Insurrection she reaches a new intensity that drew me in and would not let go. The idea of two people that are so lonely discovering a bond that is so profoundly sexual, and yet so much more, resonated with me.

Patrice bridges the strength of the old style "been there-done that" paranormal with a new twist and a freshness that sets her far apart from the norm! Don't miss this book!

Kaitlyn McKinney's first assignment as a police detective is to investigate a possible connection between the mafia and vampire hunters called Garotters. The Garotters are acquiring pulsar guns that can be used to kill vampires. Private investigator Landon Rourke often helps the police solve their cases. On his own, Landon is investigating the disappearance of zerkers from his pack. Zerkers are werewolves stuck between shape-shifted forms. Landon has known Kaitlyn for a long time. He is strongly attracted to her, but he's a werewolf and Kaitlyn doesn't know it. Landon has another secret he's hiding from Kaitlyn as well, and this one will definitely drive her away from him, so although his desire for her is strong, he needs to keep his distance.

When Kaitlyn becomes a target, Landon is forced to stay close to her. Keeping his intense desire in check becomes increasingly more difficult, then impossible to deny. As the danger mounts, Kaitlyn's life is thrown into turmoil. While she is facing killers, Landon's secrets are revealed, and then she makes a shocking discovery about herself. What happens next will change Kaitlyn's life forever.

Landon is haunted by his past. When he finally allows himself to give in to his deep desire for Kaitlyn, the result is incredibly heartwarming and passionate. Kaitlyn is the perfect match for Landon. She can handle Landon's intensity and she gives him all the love he was desperately seeking. Landon and Kaitlyn face vampires, werewolves, and villains while fighting for their love. Insurrection is an exciting and creative story.

She's a natural with a point-and-shoot camera, likes to fiddle with graphic design and, to the relief of her family, strums her guitar to an audience of one.
