Inheritance by Heather Hildenbrand (Review & Giveaway)

Title: Inheritance
Series: Heart Lines #2
Author: Heather Hildenbrand
Release Date: March 27, 2017
Format: ebook received for review
Pages: 367 per Goodreads

You either use magic or it uses you… 

Sam has regained her memory—and with it, the Knowing. There is magic inside her; strong, powerful and old as the Earth, it is more than enough to heal the sick werewolves. If only she could figure out how to use it. 

Alex Channing has finally done something selfless and walked away. For the first time ever, his reasons are not about his own interests. He knows full well Sam is the only one who can heal him. But Alex knows better than anyone: magic always comes with a price. And he refuses to let Sam get hurt because of him. He’d rather die than cause her pain—and he plans to do just that. The more rabid werewolves he can take with him, the better. 

Well I just finished reading Inheritance this weekend.  It was a pretty good book, I'd have to say.  Although not quite as exciting as Remembrance, it really let you get a longer peak into the minds of Sam and Alex.

Remembrance by Heather Hildenbrand (Review)

Title: Remembrance
Series: Heart Lines #1
Author: Heather Hildenbrand
Released: Feb 2017
Pages: 306 per Goodreads
Format; Ebook received for review

She’s the cure that could save him. If only she could remember how.

Two years ago, 20 year-old Samantha Knight experienced a life-altering trauma. Unfortunately, she can’t remember what it was. Previously outgoing, fun, and carefree—it’s as if someone flipped a switch on Sam’s insides. Now, she’s afraid of everything, socially awkward, and convinced she’s going crazy. As BeyoncĂ© would say, she woke up like this. Sam tries her best to juggle college classes, work, and the nosiest roommate ever, but behind the curtain, Sam’s life is all about keeping a firm grip on her own mind. And life is kicking her ass.

Alex Channing has only one enemy in this world: werewolves. Born and raised to fight in the supernatural military, he has become an expert at hunting and killing rabid werewolves. But when Alex is bitten and infected, he finds himself racing against a ticking clock for his own survival.

Alex’s search for a cure leads him finally to an oracle in a seaside town in California. And she gives him the reading of a lifetime. The key to his cure is a girl who forgets things, cries spontaneously, and might just be insane. And the only way she can save him is to do the one thing Alex knows is impossible: she has to remember.

Recently in my reading I’ve been avoiding PNR.  I was just so over it, ya know?  But then this book popped up on my radar, Remembrance. I’ve read Heather Hildenbrand before, so I thought, “Why not?”  I’ve read this author a few times before, and I’ve always fallen in love with her books.  Turns out that was a great decision.  Remembrance has everything I love about PNR, and books in general.
