Review of Willow’s Discovery

Book Three of 

The Winters Sisters series

 5 Star Review

By ~

Lauren of Saints & Sinners Books



Be still my heart, Joanne Jaytanie. You have made me love this series even more with Willow’s Discovery. Maybe it’s the appeal of the female scientist lead, (WOOT
WOOT! GO Chick Scientists!) Willow or just the uniqueness to the story, but you never quite know what to expect with a Winter Sisters novel. Emotions run high
as Wyatt struggles to protect Willow. Wyatt struggles trying to wrestle between his sense of duty and his heart when it comes to Willow. It doesn’t help that she likes to wander off when he’s supposed to be protecting her. With the emotional and romantic turmoil, Jaytanie has added a brilliant suspense element to Willow’s Discovery with a spy that Willow just can’t seem to take down. If
you like twists and turns with romantic intrigue, you might want to head over to Amazon and pick this series up.
Some of you may read the blurb and think, oh no. Not Science! But, don’t let it derail you from trying out this series. Jaytanie balances out the science and romance portions of her books perfectly, making them easy to read for those of us who hated science in school. Being a paranormal book lover myself, I knew that Joanne’s series would make it easily into my top ten series reads. In a word where so many books are the same and predictable, Jaytanie has mastered the knack for creating different and engaging stories. Each book in this series
is a scientifically romantic gem that paranormal lovers looking for something a little bit different than sexy vampires and shifters will enjoy. Willow’s Discovery is just another shining jewel to add to this amazing collection. 
Congratulations Joanne! It was marvelous!


Thank you, Lauren.

It’s easy and fun, and a great way to celebrate our heroes.


This month we’re celebrating the men and women (and animals too!) that rock a uniform–whichever uniform that may be. Military, Police, Firefighter and all others who serve and protect. So…Who’s Your Hero? Stop by each blog for a giveaway and to find out who OUR favorite fictional and real life heroes are…
There are tons of heroes who never receive acknowledgement for their heroic acts. I am fortunate to live in a part of the country where I am reminded of these heroes on a daily basis ~ Our Military. These brave men and women put their lives on the line each and every day to keep every one of us safe. I’m proud to be a military oriented family:
Husband ~ Retired Naval Officer
Daughter ~ Reserve Coast Guard Officer
Son ~ Navy Veteran
Brother-In-Law ~ Retired Naval Officer
Father ~ Army Veteran
Father-In-Law ~ Retired Navy 
And of course our 4-legged heroes, of which I’ve always been a strong supporter and promoter of: Our military dogs, service dogs, search and rescue dogs, and police dogs.

Share your hero with me and be entered to win a signed copy of 
Corralling Kenzie.
Will Kenzie ever find peace and security inside the corrals of her ranch again?
Kenzie Vaughn is lucky to have a big-city, big-paycheck position.  But her great job serves as nothing more than the path to her dream: a horse boarding and training ranch outside the big city.
Kenzie is a horsewoman who loves Dobermans and peaceful country living. Now she’s found the perfect ranch, right next door to a lovely campus that houses the Winters Corporation.  Her luck is holding, for the Corporation is run by the Winters’ sisters, wonderful women who could easily grow to become great friends.
One night her peace was shattered by a gunshot that wounded her horse, Boone. Good thing for Kenzie, Victory Winters is a veterinarian. Still the gunshot was no accident, and Kenzie’s past and the
Winters’ present are dangerously intertwined. Kenzie is sucked into a vortex of rogue scientists who only want her for her DNA. Fortunately, the Winters Corporation can help. Even better, a Special Ops team member, Logan Mendoza, is assigned to watch her ranch. He isn’t interested in Kenzie’s DNA; he wants her for much more. Logan takes Kenzie’s personal security personally.
 Will corralling Kenzie become Logan’s full-time mission?
