My Wicked Vampire

It being October, and near Halloween, I was more than willing to read a paranormal romance. I’m not sure that My Wicked Vampire fulfilled my craving, but on the whole, there was nothing incredibly right or wrong about the book. The word “average” really sticks in my mind; the story is light, a ...

Taste of Darkness

Having read several of Nina Bangs’ deliciously wicked novels, I I started A Taste of Darkness with certain expectations - and, happily, they were all fulfilled. The novel has all the wit and dark humor of any Bangs book, but with this story of two star-crossed lovers, it also offers more depth and ...

Wicked Nights

Vampire romances are obviously a very hot market right now, and I picked up Wicked Nights expecting a variation on the dark, brooding, lonely creature of the night finally discovering his heart isn't dead after all. I kind of like that story. Unfortunately, I didn't find it here. Donna Nolan is a ...

Night Bites

It can't have escaped the attention of even the most casual of romance readers that there are an awful lot of paranormals out there right now. Some are good. Some are bad. And quite a few of them – like this one – fall somewhere smack dab in that oh-so-forgettable middle ground. ...

Master of Ecstasy

There are plenty of romances with humorous covers that don't reflect the serious story inside. But I'm not sure I've ever seen a cover this serious on a book as unserious as Master of Ecstasy. The cover is so dark and brooding most readers would never guess what a goofy and outlandish story lurks in ...

From Boardwalk with Love

I had really high hopes going into this book. I'd heard it was kind of James Bond-meets-contemporary-romance, and, liking both of those things quite a bit, I was excited. I'm also a fan of a good parody - emphasis on good. What I found in From Boardwalk With Love was something that strove for the Bo ...

Night Games

The premise of Night Games is simple and silly. Five hundred years in the future, sex has become a spectator sport. Brian Byrne is the MVP of his time. Because he is feeling overworked and burnt out he decides to take a vacation. In Brian's century, time travel is possible, so he goes back five hund ...

The Pleasure Master

The Pleasure Master by Nina Bangs tries really hard to be an ooh la la sort of read. For me it was more of a ho hum read, all the more disappointing because of the good review she received at AAR for last year's An Original Sin. Kathy Bartlett is a modern-day New York hairdresser whose smart m ...

An Original Sin

Can you imagine living in a world where there are no real men, only men who were created in a lab or workshop? Can you imagine living a life where you never have the joy of having a father, brother or husband and the only reason you exist is because you were cloned? For Nina Bangs' heroine in An Or ...
