Paranormal Romance

Canadian Wolf

I’m a huge fan of paranormals, especially when you mix in some romantic suspense. My gateway drug to romance was urban fantasy, after all, and the best urban fantasy novels, and the best romance novels, mix a little bit of everything together to make something new. They make use of the tropes with ...

The Three Fates of Ryan Love

I have thought long and hard about this book. Honestly, I have. And I’ve seen that many of us are in reading slumps. I can honestly say that I think this particular book is the reason for mine - it took me about 6 weeks to read, when similar books of the same length generally take 2 hours. And as ...

Break Out (2014 reissue of 2011 book)

A spaceship is not normally where I would think to find a vampire. As Break Out opens, our hero, Ricardo Sanchez, vampire, is running for his life from religious zealots. Of course, this wouldn’t be particularly unusual for a vampire in a paranormal romance, but the reader quickly finds out tha ...

In His Keeping

One of the hardest things for me to buy is the concept of two people meeting and falling in a soul-joining, all-consuming, forever-and-beyond love in less time than a long holiday weekend. In fact, such a premise is so off-putting that usually, the book never stands a chance. Such was the case of Ma ...

The Book of Life

The Book of Life was one of my most hotly anticipated reads of the summer, promising a conclusion to the saga of vampire Matthew Clairmont and witch Diana Bishop’s quest for knowledge regarding the origins and secrets of creatures, specifically vampires, witches, and daemons. And for the most part ...

Restless Spirits

Have you ever read a book that you just really wanted to like? Where something about the plot, or the characters, or even the setting just got you all excited about it? Or maybe a friend read it and has been singing its praises from the mountaintops. So you read it. And you keep reading it. And whil ...

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 ...
