Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a Centaur touched by Zeus.As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her family acknowledges her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother’s transgressions.

Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother’s past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately desires.
Centaur Legacy, Book 2 Synopsis:
Camille and Drake are on the run from the head of the Centaur Council, seeking the mythical pasture of Thessaly and a family heirloom that may keep them safe. As their journey progresses from the rolling hills of Ireland to the snow covered forests of South Dakota, Cami learns more about her mother’s secrets, including a twin brother and a Centaur legacy that puts a death warrant on her entire family. Camille and Drake don’t know who to trust or where to hide. Camille’s family is quick to come to her aid, but who among them can be trusted? A supernatural benefactor forces Drake to choose between being the man he wants to be and the Centaur warrior Camille needs him to be.

Camille and Drake leave the country pursued by the Lost Herd as well as by Centaur Council enforcers. Camille’s twin brother Cameron is manipulated by the Council Head and is quickly becoming her newest enemy. Amid unexpected new protectors, enemies, and romances, Camille and Drake make their plans to travel to Africa to confront the Centaur Council.

Centaur Redemption, Book 4 Synopsis:
Cami and Drake’s honeymoon is cut short as they escape attacks by the Council Enforcers and head to South Africa for the meeting of the Centaur Council, which has ordered a death sentence on Cami and all members of the Lost Herd. The Council Chairman is her grandmother, her most dangerous foe. Surrounded by family and friends, Drake and Cami face the Council, Cami’s power-hungry uncles, an ambitious twin, taking the battle all the way to Zeus to attempt to win the freedom of the Tak herd.
Well, this book is awesome! Can I just say that one more time… AWESOME! It’s supposed to be the end of the series, but there’s a little surprise. The author says she may just give us more, one day, which I am TOTALLY ALL IN for that 🙂 BUT before I can say I want more books, I gotta tell you about this one. And one more thing, before I start my review, Ms, Nancy, you know I love you right?! But seriously, at the end, I think I almost wanted to punch you, hard. LOL You stole my breath away, made me cry, made me hug my dogs, and then made me smile so big I couldn’t help myself. So I want you know that though I about lost my mind with the “incident” at the end, it’s ok, and I still love you LOL! 🙂
So, Cami and Drake are going to go confront the council, if they can live through the traveling. There’s like ambushes everywhere, and there’s even more reveals about things I wanted to know. Some things are opening up. And let me just say… HOT DAMN, way to make a major plot twist surprise with the bad guys! My mouth almost unhinged! Cami has become a wonderful woman, and though she worries me with how much she needs Drake, I have no doubt in my mind she is going to be the powerful being she is destined to be. And dude, she has HAWT piece for a hubby 🙂 I missed seeing more of Bianca and Gage, I loved Cami’s stepmom. She has the coolest brothers, and though Drake has his own issues, he finds family in the least expected place.
The characters, all of them, in this series have become my friends. I feel for each of them. They are all important. And there’s nothing better than feeling that way toward a fictional character, not because I’m a nut case 😉 but because the writing of the story was so damn good. And it’s not just the original characters, you’ll learn more about some of the bad guys, Cami’s brother Cameron, her brothers, and so much more. She is learning to trust some, and avoid others. Cami is having to learn how to become the Centauride she is meant to be, and more. She really is fantastic. And so is Drake, and everyone else. It’s a little sad to see it wrapped up, and I am thankful that the author will revisit them one day, but it’s really perfectly done. I couldn’t have guessed some of those surprises, and I definitely wouldn’t have seen old gramma doing what she did. And the Gods and Goddesses. I mean, wow! This one will have you on a thrill ride. What more can you ask for? I am pretty sure I expressed every emotion possible while reading this book, and it’s definitely going to go in my ALL TIME FAVORITE stacks. This one, well the whole series, is a keeper! Well done. It’s a phenomenal masterpiece! 6 PAWS… I could give it no less!

I LOVE Starbucks’ White Mocha Latte and Mountain Dew, (but not together). I have a lead foot so I set cruise control when I drive, even in 25 MPH zones. I almost never win when I play Angry Birds, but have my 9 year old close, so he can clear the hard levels for me. I grew up on a farm and am opposed to eating fresh chicken (not opposed to meat – just opposed to any meat that was alive a few hours before lunch). I am a huge fan of the show, Big Bang Theory, on CBS. I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore.
