My Review:
 I never thought I'd like arranged marriages but after reading Hale Maree, I'm in love!! Poor Hale has no idea what her twisted father is getting her into when she heads over to Oscars house but she finds out fast and to say she's a bit shocked is an understatement. 
Charming, dashing and used to getting his way Oscar knows what he wants..... Hale!! I very much enjoyed how this story played out! Even though the concept of arranged marriages aren't very common, I think Misty played these two off of each other very well!  I loved the bantering and eventually the love that grew between them!

Landon Grace is a stand-up guy, but running about 7-bananas-strong, from tequila shots at Oscar and Hale's wedding reception, what happened between him and Sher Simmons was supposed to be a one time thing. A quickie, between the Best Man and Maid of Honor, at their best friends' wedding.
But some one-night-stands refuse to be finished in one night.
Especially when they return with a hard shot of morning sickness.
Now, Landon is faced with a problem he never thought he'd have to consider...
Just how much sway does a guy really have, regarding a woman's choice to pursue or terminate the pregnancy of his child?

 My Review:
"Full of Grace" opens where book one (Hale Maree) left us, with Hale & Oscar's wedding. This time Misty focuses on Landon *sigh* & Sher. This unlikely pair share a drunken passionless & very brief encounter. Although Landon finds Sher attractive, he has no intention of a serious relationship with her & the two go about their separate lives. Unbeknownst to Landon, that night resulted in a life long commitment that will forever bind him to Sher.........She's pregnant.  Landon is determined to help not only with the pregnancy, but also raising the baby. Astonished & frightened, Sher only sees one way out of this baby induced confinement - abortion. Landon finds himself using any means necessary, including hiding Sher's clothes (no you read that correctly) to convince Sher their baby's life is worth the many sacrifices they would endure.
While battling for his baby's life, Landon finds himself falling in love with Sher. He wants to be with her because of who she is & the baby is just an extra bonus instead of the entire reason for them to have a future. Sher however, is battling her own demons. Despite the fact she's deeply in love with Landon, Sher refuses to follow in her mother's footsteps - raising a baby alone. Is Landon's love strong enough to overcome Sher's insecurities or will she leave & walk away from the best thing that ever happened to her?I loved this book!! Even though it deals with some heavy topics (unplanned pregnancy & abortion), Misty keeps it light & funny. From surprise temporary tattoos to beautiful love letters, I found myself laughing hysterically to crying joyful tears. You won't be able to put this book down & you will absolutely fall in love with these unbelievably realistic

Hale Simmons dreams of climbing out of her impoverished life, going to college, and getting herself a titanium crash helmet, so she can eventually bust through the Plexiglas ceiling of her crappy life. But for now, she's just a 18-year-old girl with a flimsy hope, barely getting by with her alcoholic father, Jerry.
But for Hale, 'crappy' suddenly takes a nosedive, when Jerry becomes the sole witness to a horrible accident. It is an event which means to affect everyone, especially Hale, who wasn't even involved.
While the depth of the accident has just begun to unfold, Otto Maree, a prominent business man and old family friend, stands to lose everything because of it. Otto is desperate for Hale's father to stay quiet about what occurred the night the two men meet for a drink. Out of mutual moments of desperation, the two fathers forge a deal. Jerry is desperate to gain financial stability for both himself and Hale, and Otto Maree is more than willing to pay to keep his secret just that.
But deals like this need to be made of the strongest vows and bound with the most faithful of loyalties. Otto proposes a marriage between Hale and his playboy-son, Oscar, in order to assure that the secret remains 'in the family'. The mystery surrounding the accident continues to grow and Hale struggles against her own mysterious feelings that begin to develop for Oscar, who turns out to less of a playboy, but just as fiercely loyal and dedicated as his father.
As the pressure around her continues to escalate, Hale realizes that she's got to decide if this arranged marriage is really just a big mistake or an amazing twist of fate that has been waiting around for this particular accident to happen.

                     GENRE:  PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Seventeen-year-old Nalena Maxwell, known as The Waste at her school, has received a sign to join an ancient community. She'd know that, if it wasn't the wrong dang sign. But Garrett Reese, one of the school's most popular athletes and a boy with eyes as clean as Jesus, knows exactly what Nalena is and he knows about all the family skeletons that are about to come crashing into her life...

Title: Keyston
There’s a man-made storm coming, like a rip in the world, and it’s called the Cusp.
Struggling to fit into the destiny she’s accepted, Nalena Maxwell has been left with one objective: she must find her murdered grandfather’s Memory. Stolen and hidden away by her own father over seventeen years ago, the Memory could be the key to ending the Cusp and destroying the Ianua’s rival community, The Fury.
Driven by each individual’s selfish desires, The Fury has always lacked the loyalty and organization it needs to be an actual force of power.
Until now.
Someone masterminded the Fury’s massive attack on the Ianua, slaughtering twelve of their thirteen community leaders, the Addos. Now there are rumors that the 13th Cura, to which Nali belongs, has gone to the Fury, manipulating the last Addo in order to control the other 12 Curas.
As the Cusp brings the Fury and their own communities against them, Nalena’s Cura must preserve the Ianua, but finding the key to the Cusp isn’t as simple as it seems.



                                                       GENRE: PARANORMAL ROMANCE

A second ago, Nalena opened her eyes.
And she was safe in Garrett’s arms.
Then it all comes rushing back—the riots, The Fury, the Cusp. The Ianua community is in a major jam.
Forced into survival mode, the Ianua are holed up in the fortress of the Hotel Celare. Each Cura’s top-ranking members have gathered to guard the last remaining Addo, as the entire community also scrambles to trust one another and organize a new game plan to overthrow The Fury.
The trick is to keep the human race alive.
But The Fury’s game has changed. They have a Mastermind at the helm and he is out to destroy the Ianua.
Terrifying and brilliant, this mysterious Mastermind has organized and focused The Fury like never before. He has recruited the Simple and unleashed the Cusp’s wide-spread chaos all around the world.
And behind the scenes of this big picture, Nalena and everyone around her are busy trying to keep up, while also absorbing the rapid-fire aftershocks of their changing lives. There are traitors everywhere.
While The Cusp is expected to bring twists and turns, Nalena and Garrett never expected it to throw a silverware-drawer full of forks into the road. Each path tests their loyalty and their faith and makes them question who is who.
Including themselves.
And each other.
And in the end, some things, you can never see coming.


                     TITLE: MERCY, A GARGOYLE STORY

                 GENRE:  DARK, URBAN FANTASY

“My will to survive is the first thing to drown.
I know, because I hold it under myself.”
After facing severe tragedy in life, Madeline assumes her death will be easy.
But the angels do not come to take her to Heaven.
Instead, what retrieves her is something she never expected: a gargoyle.
Delivered to Truce, the King of the Gargoyles, Madeline now has choices she never wanted. She has the ability to take over the entire Gargoyle Kingdom, if she is willing to kill the king. However, looking to prevent takeover, Truce transforms Madeline, thereby granting her the ability to achieve the thing she wants most—death—if she can just find the human recipient for the Gargoyle Gift that she now has to give. It should be easy.
But lives, whether they are lived or not, are seldom simple, and Madeline’s past still stands in her way. Now, only a voyeur in the life of The Boy with the Golden Rod Voice, Madeline’s must reconcile her own life and death, if she ever hopes to have free reign of her soul.
