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 ...

Alpha Night

Nalini Singh’s paranormal romance (with a huge touch of mystery and suspense) Alpha Night is a book that comes on strong in the second half, which is great if you make it that far. Selenka Durev, alpha of the BlackEdge wolfpack of Russia, is at the site of an attempted “empathic terrorist” ...

Starcrossed

Allie Therin’s Magic in Manhattan series continues with book two, Starcrossed, which begins shortly after the climactic events of the previous book (Spellbound) and finds Rory and Arthur facing off against a powerful and terrifying enemy intent on forcing Rory to unlock the secrets of an incredibl ...

In a departure from her usual m/m contemporary romance fare, Lily Morton has embarked upon a new series of paranormal romances featuring The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings, a psychic with a tragic past, dark secrets and a big heart he’s kept under wraps for years.  The book is part ghost st ...

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 ...
