Paranormal Romance

Rare Vigilance

M.A. Grant has been on my radar for a while, but I haven’t yet managed to get around to reading any of her books, so when I saw she was starting a new series, it seemed the perfect time to jump in.  Rare Vigilance is book one in her Whitehorn Agency trilogy and the well-paced, wonderfully balance ...

Lover Unveiled

I've been half-heartedly following the Black Dagger Brotherhood series for the last few years, and Lover Unveiled is a perfect example of why. Fans of the series will recognize the usual setup of insta-love between two strangers set against the backdrop of a new danger facing  the vampire race. As ...

All Fired Up

Note: There are spoilers for the Not Dead Yet series in this review. I really enjoyed Jenn Burke’s Not Dead Yet series of paranormal romances and was delighted when I learned she was planning a follow-up series which would focus on ‘baby vamp’ Evan Fournier.  Evan was a troubled young man ...

The Quiet House

Lily Morton’s The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings introduced readers to the eponymous quirky and snarky York-based ghost-tour guide, and Levi Black, a cartoonist from London who, after the death of his mother and a bad break-up, moves to York after inheriting a house near the Minster from a d ...

Winter Oranges

Marie Sexton is one of those authors who’s been on my radar for a while but whose books I haven’t yet read, so I was pleased when I found something on my Kindle that would fit this month’s TBR Challenge prompt.  Winter Oranges is an emotional but impossible love story that kept me guessing ...

Black Witch Magic

Black Witch Magic is a paranormal romance that follows a cursed witch unlucky in love, an intrepid paranormal investigator, and a small town haunted by a menace. It has an entertaining premise and a gorgeous cover, but ultimately is a boring read with little to recommend it. Selene Blackstone is ...

Stray Fears

Stray Fears is another compelling story from the pen of Gregory Ashe that once again showcases his talent for creating strong, clever plots and engaging but flawed characters who exhibit considerable growth as individuals throughout the course of the story.  As in most of his output, we’ve got an ...

The Ghost and Charlie Muir

I’ve enjoyed a number of books by Felice Stevens, and when I saw she was writing something  a bit different - a love story with a paranormal twist -  I was intrigued and eager to read it. The Ghost and Charlie Muir is a cute and tender standalone romance, in which our protagonists are helped alo ...

Desolation Road

When you read a Christine Feehan book, you know what you’re getting.  No matter the series, no matter the hero, no matter the heroine, you know the formula, and it’s either  one you loathe or one you can’t live without.  But the added wrinkle here – a D/s relationship with full-on kitten ...

Flame

Flame is very much like a cream puff – sweet and decadent, but a bit hollow in the middle.  As number seventeen in a long running series, you might expect a certain fatigue to set in on the writer’s part, and it shows.  The tale employs the familiar trope of enemies-to-lovers, but the results ...
