Dark Heat: The Dark Kings Stories

Anthology
There was nothing that I liked about Dark Heat, a collection of four short stories about dragon shifting men who live in the Scottish Highlands. Not the characters nor the world building nor the plot nor the romances. Nothing. Oh, wait. I did like that the stories were short. It’s normal proced ...

Better Homes and Hauntings

Who doesn't love a good book about creepy houses, beautiful men, Greek mythology, and a witty heroine? I know it was hard for me to resist from page one. The book totally grabbed me purely from a character standpoint. All the creepy-crawly stuff afterward was a major bonus. Off the ...

Her Perfect Mate

Think you know shifters? Think again. In the world of the Department of Covert Operations (DCO - a secret agency within Homeland Security...kinda), shifters play an important role in keeping the country safe, but a)not by changing into cats or wolves or what-have-you and b)they aren’t the only one ...

Shield of Winter

After a while it gets hard to judge books in a series. When the author delivers exactly what we want the books can be repetitious. When the author delivers something new fans can become rabid, snarling beasts that didn’t get the “fix” they were looking for. This is the thirteenth full length n ...

Falling Light

First of all, do not read Falling Light unless you have read its predecessor, Rising Darkness. This is a complicated tale about complicated beings, and I’ll admit to feeling a little lost even after having read both books. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to just jump into this one with ...

Wild About You

Okay, here’s my confession of the week: I don’t like cheesecake. Every so often, I try it because I wonder if my taste will change and I’ll finally cotton on to what half the world seems to love. But I don’t. I find it cheesy and filling and slightly nauseating and kind of gross — sweet ch ...

Rush

I liked this book, so it’s really unfortunate that I chose it not realizing it was the third title in a series. This was unfortunate because Rush could have been a great book if I hadn’t spent so much time confused and wishing I’d read the two preceding titles in the proper order. ...

Heart of Stone

I love gargoyles. I spent quite a bit of time babysitting in the mid- to late-nineties, and was introduced to the Gargoyles cartoon by a 4-year-old boy. I promptly fell in love with the show, the characters, and the romance of it all (and there is definitely romance in there, whether or not that 4-y ...

Bound By Night

Vampire romances have become passé in recent years, falling out of favor for new and shiny creatures such as demons, angels, werewolves, and the like. Post-Twilight the sub-genre has become rife for mockery and parody and, given some of what has been published, for good reason. I’m pleased to say ...

First to Burn

With First to Burn, military romance plus a foray into the paranormal proves to be a winner for the most part. Anna Richland takes her immortal warriors and blends the Beowulf legend with modern-day military conflict for a story that certainly caught my attention. Even with the dreaded sagging middl ...
