The Last Wolf

Maria Vale’s The Last Wolf is not at all what I expected. I thought I’d get a fast-paced, spicy shifter romance, much like others I’ve loved. This book, this heroine was unexpected. In all the right ways. Shifters and werewolves are different in this world. A werewolf must turn into a wo ...

Drop Dead Gorgeous

Juliet Lyons’ self-published, Wattpad series has gained mainstream attention and garnered her a contract with Sourcebooks, so potential readers should be aware that Drop Dead Gorgeous, the second book in her Bite Nights series, was previously titled Romancing the Undead.  Depending on one’s moo ...

Blood Guard

In Blood Guard, the first book in the two-book Mission series, author Megan Erickson introduces her readers to the vampires of the Gregorie clan and the women who love them.

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 ...

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 ...
