Ocean Light

If you're a fan of urban fantasy or paranormal romance, I imagine you're familiar with Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. I discovered it back in 2006, and I've been a devoted fan ever since. Ocean Light is the seventeenth installment, and the second entry in a sort of second story arc called the ...

Echo Moon

The first two books in Laura Spinella’s Ghost Gifts trilogy of paranormal mysteries introduces readers to Aubrey Ellis, a woman who has been able to communicate with the dead since she was a child.  These novels centre around Aubrey and her husband, a hard-nosed investigative reporter, but in Ech ...

Midnight Wolf

Apparently I’m late to the party, because Midnight Wolf, the first in the Shifter’s Unbound series that I’ve read is actually number eleven chronologically (not including novellas). Oops? While it definitely seems like paranormals have faded into the general romance backdrop, there are still s ...

Burn Bright

Long running series eventually (inevitably?) become more about providing fans an opportunity to connect with favorite characters than they are about providing great stories. In Burn Bright, the fifth book in the Alpha and Omega series and fifteenth novel in the general Mercyverse, Briggs delivers a ...

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 ...

Thirst

Thirst came out in 2017, and it's the first book in Jacquelyn Frank's Energy Vampires series. One of my best friends offline is a huge fan of the author, so I thought I'd give her books a try. If you like vampire stories, this one feature more originality than the average in the worldbuilding. I'm n ...

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. Just reading the premise had the paranormal junkie in me salivating. A brand new series that promises danger, excitement, and ...

Night Shift

Night Shift is a collection of three alternate reality/paranormal romances and one fantasy romance, all by established genre authors. The first three stories were solid visits to worlds those authors have written about in other books, which contributes to the generally-strong worldbuilding in the co ...

Archangel's Viper

I’ve probably re-read each of Nalini Singh’s books at least once. Between the Psy-Changeling, Guild Hunter, and Rock Hard series she’s written thirty novels and novellas -so... yeah, that’s a lot of time I’ve spent in her worlds. So be warned - unbiased as I try to be, this review of Archa ...
