Paranormal Romance

That Old Black Magic

Light and fluffy paranormals sometimes really don’t work for me. Humor is so subjective and mine tends to lean quite a bit in the, let’s say, “warped” direction. You can imagine my delight though at finding a book that tickled my funny bone without insulting my intelligence or sacrificing th ...


I know I’m not alone when I say that I am so over vampires. And werewolves. And demons. And faeries. I crave originality. I long for fantasies that don’t leverage the tired old clichés of those supernatural beings. So you can imagine my glee when I found this urban fantasy that delivers on its ...

The Lure of Song and Magic

When it comes to plot, sometimes less is more. This is certainly the case with The Lure of Song and Magic, which is bogged down by a convoluted storyline that in the end, didn’t make much sense. Dylan “Oz” Oswin is a fabulously successful Hollywood producer with a tragic ...


Kresley Cole is one of the few writers I know the release dates for and usually pre-order her books so I can start reading that very day. Needless to say, I’m slightly addicted to the IAD series and have been waiting for Lothaire for a long, long time and I wasn’t disappointed. Lothaire, The ...

In Memories We Fear

I still love a good vampire story. I know some (many?) are sick of blood suckers, but I like the cold, noble creatures of the night when they are done right. Their inherent danger factor can really increase the tension of forbidden love. Their elegant, everlasting youth makes them very desirable. Th ...

Ecstasy Untamed

Ecstasy Untamed is a decent book hiding behind a truly terrible cover. Colored like the inside of an overripe watermelon, it has a picture of a guy in an underwear model pose, looking gormless and doped up on cold meds. His mouth is even hanging open. I recommend this book, but I don't recommend rea ...

Spirit Bound

If you have not read any of the Sea Haven or Drake Sister novels by Christine Feehan, then I strongly recommend doing so before you read the novel Spirit Bound. Although this is a good book, it is very confusing in the beginning if you do not know the back story on the characters. I had never read a ...

Fate's Edge

Writing teams have always fascinated me - how do they get their work to be so seamless? Shouldn't I be able to tell who wrote what? Is one the idea person and the other the actual writer or do they combine the jobs? However they work it, I've been a fan of the husband and wife writing team Ilona And ...

Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest paranormal fan out there, but Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale is a book I thought might work for me. I have little interest in vampires or werewolves, but I do like elves, faeries, fae, and the like. But though I did like the paranormal aspect of the book just fine, I ...


This is not the worst book I've ever read. But it was the review book that took the longest amount of time, bored me the most, and just about ruined all other reading for me. I couldn't wait till it was done and yet adversely, couldn't force myself to finish it. I had to assign pages to myself every ...
