Sight Unseen

I will admit to a great deal of reluctance when sitting down to write this review. But it's no use procrastinating. Sight Unseen was painful to read, and even more so to finish. Faith Connors's vocation to become a forensic investigator became clear early on, when she suspected her best friend's ...

The Midnight Work

On my own time I read a lot of Fantasy and I've recently gotten into vampire tales as well. Given this background, I've seen an awful lot of weirdness, but nothing I've come across can even begin to touch this book. While the author has a lot of creative ideas, they never really flow together ...

Follow Me

Follow Me is an unusual paranormal about a man and a woman who are soulmates, but live in different countries and centuries. There were some passages in this book that were haunting and powerful - but there were even more passages that were simply confusing. The idea behind this book is a good one ...

Night Game

Though I haven't read any of the books in Christine Feehan's new series, it was certainly easy to forget that since I've read books just like it at least a dozen times – especially in the last year or so. In that oh-so-familiar Publishers-Beating-Stuff-to-Death category, Night Game is one of th ...

The Dark Horse

The Dark Horse is the second book in Patricia Simpson's series The Forbidden Tarot, about an ancient set of tarot cards that bring trouble to those who find them. Despite a fascinating premise, it turns out to be a decidedly average read. Doctoral student Claire Coulter is a gifted cr ...

Revenge Gifts

Lately I’ve been so thrilled with the new Fantasy/Romance hybrids being published by Luna and Tor. Even when the books are less than complete hits, there’s enough that’s fresh and original in each to make them almost all worth the reading. Revenge Gifts is no exception to the rule. It’s l ...

What Dreams May Come

Anthology
Ghost cats, psychic connections and a paperback hero in the flesh - mix it all together and you get What Dreams May Come. Sherrilyn Kenyon, Rebecca York, and Robin D. Owens all seem to take a chance here and step away from the romance rules. The outcome is different, sort of out there and perhaps wo ...

Wanted: One Sexy Night

This is the final installment in McCoy's Starlight trilogy about alien women coming to Earth. Not having read the previous entries, I wondered if I would have a problem getting the story, but that was no issue. I got the story, I just didn't like it terribly much. Mira is a woman on a ...

Sabrina's Destiny

When reading the excerpt of Sabrina's Destiny, I was quickly taken in by Selena Robins' writing voice and the spirited heroine. I looked forward to a humorous Chick Lit/Paranormal blending but I didn't care for the guardian angel concept and found the lead characters too-sweet-to-be-true. ...

If You Dare

If You Dare is the first in a trilogy about three Scottish brothers living under a deadly family curse. Kresley Cole tries to capture the feel of those old-school historical romances, full of sweeping adventure and larger-than-life passion, but annoying characters and a shallow storyline drag the bo ...
