Meet the Author

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 8 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 have a stray cat that I feed every night and morning but she’s never let me get closer than within 3 feet of her – I keep thinking eventually I’ll wear her down and she’ll let me pet her. I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore.

    Rumors abound in the Centaur world that the Lost Herd is back an

    Rumors abound in the Centaur world that the Lost Herd is back and Camille is both of the Chiron and Lost Herd. Rumors also say that she now has a full Centaur protector. All those rumors would be correct. Drake and Cami are making their way toward the Centaur Council. 

    Death orders have been issued for Camille’s family and they are in hiding. Cami’s twin brother Cameron has been manipulated and is caught up in their grandmother’s evil machinations. 

    New revelations have been revealed and a very unexpected ally has been discovered. War is coming, can Camille and Drake bring a peaceful resolution?

    Wow! Centaur Rivalry may just be my favorite book in this magnificent series, and that is saying a lot. Old friends and new ones made on the way only enhance this gripping adventure. What can I say, I absolutely love this series and Century Rivalry is an excellent addition. Who ever would of thought I’d be so captivated by Centaurs, but yet I’m sucked in every time. Nancy Straight is a spectacular writer, creating a vivid world living within our world. The relationships and romantic connections are heart felt and strong but still safe for teen plus audience, more implied than described. If you love a fabulous teen romance, don’t miss Centaur Rivalry.

    This ARC copy of Century Rivalry was given to me by Nancy Straight in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication May 1, 2013.

    Let me count the reasons on why I am OVER THE HILL IN LOVE with

    Let me count the reasons on why I am OVER THE HILL IN LOVE with this series… 1. A completely awesome, kick ass heroine, who has one of the most impressive attitudes. I will get to that in a moment. 2. Extremely HAWT pieces of male meat EVERYWHERE! I mean, Drake, Daniel, Gage, the 5 Brothers… seriously, gimme some love here boys! 3. There is some MAJOR family drama… If you think your family is crazy, you should meet her’s. 4. The world building of how the Centaurs and their laws and loop holes are fascinating to me. 5. Lastly, but not least, I ALMOST got my happy ending LOL! Though I know there will be 5 books (hence my 5 reasons), I finally get something I wanted since the beginning- no I will not go telling you what that is because you need to read this series on you own   
    I am extremely proud of Camille and her character growth. She is way more cautious than she used to be, and though she is scared, she is not backing down. She finds some unlikely allies, and she also makes Drake not be so… depressing- for lack of a better word. She has matured in her decision making and she’s also realizing that her powers are useful, so use them. I’m also so glad, that when she had the options to hide, she did when it was necessary and in the end, she knows that hiding will not always be the right choice, and when given the option to hide for good, she won’t. Her determination to make the world a better place for centaurs has completely impressed me. Honey, if I lived in your world, I could be your crazy Cajun sidekick   
    Let’s talk about all the HAWT male pieces for a moment. Drake surprised me, with some of his not so optimistic attitude, however when he finally finds his “switch” (yeah that’s what I’ll call it *wink*) he finally realizes that some sacrifices are worth it, even if in the moment it seems unbearable, there’s always a way  I of course love his chivalry and I love that even when it kills him, he gives Cami space. Very cool! Daniel is still a major favorite… HEY DANIEL, I’m available … He is hilarious, and he’s not so tough, even if he pretends really well. I am reaaaaally hoping he gets then ending I hope he gets. He’s the best friend anyone could ask for. YAY for Team Daniel… Brent is…. ugh. I actually wanna dislike him. He makes me mad a lot, and then he does something so nice, and some comforting, and damnit, I love him again. I am SERIOUSLY happy with what he chose in that particular “decision”.  As for the other brothers, I am very much hoping to see more. 
    There was so much action. I mean, let’s get attacked here, and chased here, and almost strangled here, and let’s try not to die here. Yeah, seriously, it’s that awesome. And I am very much in happiness with the humor that strikes in every once in a while. And the drama, I mean I am seriously hoping that mama Z dies a really terribly, torturous, mean death, which will fit her. Dear Ms Nancy, hear my plea on that one. I also hope Cameron doesn’t become permanently stuck in his current situation. Please fix this. It’s heartbreaking. And to the new characters, Jessica and Katherine. Jess is the coolest kid. I really like her, but I swear, if she goes back to her crazy family, I will personally jump into the book and kick her ass myself! Open your eyes, and maybe you’ll find exactly what you were looking for is in front of your face. As for her character, I absolutely love her attitude. And Katherine… She is a whole new creature which is soooo cool. I am hoping to learn even more about that, and I am extra happy with her “situation” and hope it continues to work out   
    Ok, enough with the characters. Let me talk about the writing for just a minute. Think if you were a complete chocolate addict, and someone gave you a room full of every chocolate know to man…. You will never leave this room, it has everything you could ever want. It’s yummy, and soft, yet hard, and delicious, and sometime bitter, and overall, the best tasting thing that will ever touch your tongue… Yep, I just used an entire paragraph comparing the writing to chocolate… I am obsessed and I will not let go. My secret is I actually hate chocolate-yes I am the devil spawn- but I know how most people love it, and I happen to be obsessed with cinnamon rolls and bacon LOL so it’s that level to me. I am completely invested in every single character. I have fallen in love with the two main characters, and I have grown to hate the bad guys-and ladies- and I am completely engrossed in what will happen. It’s like a beautiful disaster. It’s such a treasure to love a story this much. It’s only book 5, and though I am DYING to know how it will end, I’m already crying thinking about the fact that it’s going to end. *sad face* So, without further ado, do you have any more questions as to why you aren’t reading this series yet? Seriously, go get them RIGHT NOW! I have a few moments to wait.  6 MIRACULOUSLY DISASTROUS MAGNIFICENT PAWS!  Yep, this is one of those rare 6 PAW moments.

    Straight is keeping the story fresh with each book!

    Cami must have known I needed my solitude, and she stayed wordlessly by my side-no words of encouragement or second thoughts about what lay before us. If we died, wed die together- our last act on this earth trying to save the Lost Herd and the family we had both come to love.
    ***

    I am never good at reviews when it is the 3rd book (or more of the series). Especially when it is as good as the previous ones. I just always feel like a broken record...yes, love the characters, love the storyline, yada yada. But truly this was another fabulous addition to the series. I did love the characters and I did love the storyline. As the story moves along, Straight keeps it fresh by the things she is adding to the book. You don't feel as if you are reading the same story in a different book.

    I do love the opening line in the summary "The Centaur world is rocked as news spreads of the Lost Herd, Camille's existence, and her Centaur protector." Um, yeah. Just a tad. LoL! What I would give to see the faces of those who have come in contact with Drake in all his hoof-y greatness!

    There is still romance to be had and not just with Drake and Cami. Oh just you wait and see! There are new people added to this one and so new romances are bound to happen. Speaking of the new people, I really think that readers are going to like them. I definitely think they bring something great to the series.

    Ok, enough of that. Before you know it I will be giving away the story. And we can't have that can we? No. We cannot. So of course I recommend this book (and the whole dang series). Straight is a fantastic story teller and I cannot wait to see what she has waiting for us in book 4, CENTAUR REDEMPTION.

    Centaur Rivalry is the third book in the Touched Series by Nancy

    Centaur Rivalry is the third book in the Touched Series by Nancy Straight. You need to read the first and second book before reading this book. There is so much that happens and so much critical information you need to know to fully have a grasp of what's going on. This series gets better and better with each book. I knew things were about to get rough, but I had no idea just how hard things would get for Cami and Drake. Whew!! We also get to meet some new characters and with them comes some possible new romances. I'm not a fan of Cami's brother. He doesn't seem to think for himself. You always have that one. Even in real life. Hopefully, he comes around. The characters as a whole are pretty amazing. They all have their own little quirks and for such a large cast of characters, I was surprised that I grew to really like each of them for different reasons. I highly recommend this series to all fantasy/paranormal romance fans. This has been such an amazing series so far. I'm ready for more!

    **This is the third book in this series. I¿ll do my best not to

    **This is the third book in this series. I’ll do my best not to include spoilers.**

    Now that the Centaur Council knows about Camille and the Lost Herd and discovers Drake’s secret, her entire family is sentenced to death and forced into hiding.

    Many new characters enter the story, both good and bad, as Camille and Drake insist on facing the Council in Africa. They can only hope to change the Council’s ruling but centaur may have to kill centaur.

    Some really great events happen in this third book. Some I was hoping for and some surprised me. I also met some new characters that I would like to know better. One in particular. She made a lasting impression.

    Camille’s brother is brain washed by their meddling grandmother and could now become her enemy and the Council is all in an uproar about the existence of the Lost Herd, thought long destroyed, and Camille’s place in that bloodline.

    No one is safe as family turns on family and spies are everywhere.

    The best part about this series is the characters. I’m a fan of character driven novels and I met so many here. A few really stand out to me, whether good or bad, and even the secondary characters stayed with me. That says a lot about Nancy’s writing. She gave me such diverse personalities to engage with, each with their own voice.

    Camille really steps up her game. The warrior in her comes out. She’s had enough of the running and bloodshed, and she’s bringing it to the Council. Tougher times are ahead and I can’t wait to read what’s coming!

    I own this complete series and I can't wait to add the next book to my bookshelf!

    For those of you that follow my blog (Gin's Book Notes) it will

    For those of you that follow my blog (Gin's Book Notes) it will come as no surprise that I LOVED Centaur Rivalry. I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy books that are unique and stray away from the popular norm. Nancy Straight has written a paranormal series that definitely falls into that category.

    Her Touched Series features centaurs and they are nothing like you imagine them to be. They are HAWT, awesome, complex, and enduring. I love the characters and all the drama that surrounds this group of creatures. It’s like reading a centaur soap opera. There’s romance, drama, suspense, mystery, love, hate, and all the stuff in between.

    If I had to use one word to sum up what book 3, Centaur Rivalry, is about I would say “strength”.  Camille and Drake both learn to embrace their powers and duties. The family comes together and proves that there is “strength” in numbers and that love has a strength of its own. This is a fantastic Young Adult Paranormal Series that I would recommend to any and all fans of this genre. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading book 1, Blood Debt, you can pick it up for free.

    Fantastic!

    All that I can say at this point is, "WOW!" Excellent imagination and writing skills from the author. My complaint? I must wait all the way until November to read the sequel! Bummer! The story left me at the edge of my seat and breathless. Love the characters, except Zandra! I just wanted to slap her every time her name came up and then knock Cameron upside his head, the Knucklehead! :-( The story had me on the edge of my seat and holding my breath. I will definitely be adding this series to my "Books to recommend to friends" listing. Kudos and great job to the author!

    This is the thrid book in the Touched Series...which has officially become my all time favorite YA series to date. Sancy Straight writes with humor, passion and an unpredicability that brings the characters to life. My reviews never recap the book. You can read the "Overview" provided to get that. What needs to be said is this is a great book for all ages. It sucks you in to a new world and you want to be apart of. Excellent book/Excellent series! Can't wait for the next one.
