Paranormal Romance

Dragon Bound

Despite having recently inhaled the first two books in Thea Harrison’s new Moonshadow series, I think it’s necessary to preface this review with a few confessions/disclaimers:  I truly don’t read a lot of PNR/fantasy, I’m only vaguely familiar with elves and Fae (who knew there was more tha ...

Royal Enchantment

Royal Enchantment and the books in the Camelot Reborn series work under the premise that King Arthur and his Knights were suspended in time in order to defend humans against a future magical threat by Queen Morgan le Fae and her people.  It sounded like something I might enjoy since I’ve loved st ...

Spellbinder

Thea Harrison’s Moonshadow series weaves old English tales of magic and myth into her established world of shifters and Fae. In her new story, Spellbinder ,she blends legend and the paranormal together to tell the tragic story of Morgan le Fae, a sorcerer and kingmaker sentenced into a life of ser ...

Oversight

Spoiler alert:  The Community books need to be read in order.  Do not read this review if you have not read Insight first. Earlier this year I reviewed the first book in The Community series, Insight, and my major complaint was that it was a bit too busy.  Mr. Hassell spent a good portion of i ...

Forest of Thorns and Claws

A well-researched novel about conservation and tiger shifters in Sumatra, J.T. Hall’s Forest of Thorns and Claws highlights the destruction and cruelty caused by greed, poaching, stupidity and deforestation in a supposedly protected rainforest. The main character, Donovan McGinnis, is a vet wit ...

To Touch You

When I read To Touch You, I didn’t realise it was part of an established series, so I can honestly say that it can be read as a stand-alone novel despite being the fourth book in the Mates Collection. This is the story of a wolf shifter finding his ‘true mate’ at a very young age. The mate ...

The Alpha's Claim

This is the first novel I have read by this author and, as I was in the mood for a shifter romance, this looked a good choice and the enticing cover drew my eye. The Alpha’s Claim is a shifter story, with the animal in question being a coyote, or rather a pack of coyotes. Jim West, the eponymou ...

Preacher, Prophet, Beast

Preacher, Prophet, Beast is the seventh in Harper Fox’s wonderful Tyack and Frayne series of mysteries set in Cornwall, and it may be the best - or is it? Every time I finish a book in this series I say, ‘Oh, that was the best one’. I suspect every reader will have their favourite. We find ...

The Seven Sins of Ruby Love

Full disclosure, I’ve always been a bit biased towards the Beyond series since the setting is practically in my backyard.  The idea that a portal to the afterlife has opened somewhere in Tempe, Arizona just starts me on all sorts jokes about Hell being a summer day here in the desert.  Don’t w ...

Wolfsong

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reviewing The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.  I loved it and recommended it to everyone I know.  Since then, I was certain - convinced really - that no other book could or would top my best of list for 2016 (though Cat Sebastian’s The Soldier’s Scoundrel c ...
