Iron & Velvet

Iron & Velvet is the first and highly disappointing book in a series of silly-gritty whodunits featuring Kate Kane, a mortal, hard-drinking investigator of paranormal mysteries. Physically, she’s eternally beautiful and emotionally she’s in constant trouble.  Mourning the death of her partn ...

Graveyard Shift

Graveyard Shift is book three in Jenn Burke’s original and entertaining Not Yet Dead series of paranormal romances, and is a satisfying and poignant send off for Wes, Hudson and their found-family of witches, vampires and other supernatural beings.  While each book in the set could work as a stan ...

To Tempt the Wolf

Grrr. If you happen to have heard a growl outside your house recently, odds are that it was not a lupus garou (apparently a version of the French for grey werewolf, and the favored term of author Terry Spear), but I, Charlotte, growling in frustration as I waded through this overlong book that false ...

Widdershins

Percival Endicott Whyborne comes from a very wealthy family – his father is a railroad baron – but didn’t want to go into the business (as his older brother did) and is thus somewhat estranged from his family.  His mother has been unwell for years and he doesn’t get on with his father, who ...

The Bear's Chosen Mate

Vivian Arend is a prolific Canadian romance writer. I first discovered her books with her Adrenaline Search and Rescue series (which I love!) set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and then I dove into her multiple contemporary series set in and around Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. But she's also wel ...

Mainly by Moonlight

Josh Lanyon’s latest novel is kind of Adrien English meets Bewitched as the owner of an antique store (who also happens to be a witch) finds himself suspected of murder just a few days before his wedding to the city’s Police Commissioner.  Mainly by Moonlight is an enjoyable romp that’s perha ...

Wolf Rain

It’s raining wolves! Hallelujah! Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling world began with Slave to Sensation, and then transitioned into the Psy-Changeling Trinity world with the book Silver Silence. This is the third book in the Trinity half of the series and, due to the sequential nature of the series, ...

Give Up the Ghost

Jenn Burke’s Not Dead Yet earned a place on my keeper shelf earlier this year for many reasons, not least of which were the great storytelling, excellent worldbuilding, memorable characters, snappy dialogue and unusual premise.  Wes Cooper was murdered in 1933 by his lover Michael, but was resurr ...

The Rose

I'm a big fan of pretty much anything Tiffany Reisz writes, so I was ecstatic to receive a copy of The Rose, her latest novel, for review. It's a follow-up to 2017's The Red - which I loved - so I settled in fully expecting to be swept away by this one. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out to be quite ...

Forever Wolf

Maria Vale's The Legend of All Wolves series is a unique entry in the broad and popular world of shifter romances. No one would define it as cute or fun, so if that's the kind of paranormal romance you want, you'll have to look elsewhere. But if you like a meaty story full of gristle to chew on, you ...
