Wolf Unleashed

As a reader and a reviewer I try not to be too set in my ways, so every once in awhile I take a chance on an author I don’t recognize. Sometimes that leads me to a D or F review, but with Wolf Unleashed it most certainly paid off. While it may not have made DIK status, Wolf Unleashed hit on everyt ...

Hell on Wheels

How do I describe this book? It’s like having Oreos with orange juice - delicious when consumed separately, but together they just make for a sour mess. Hell on Wheels combined two things I enjoy (paranormal romances and roller derby) but by throwing them in the middle of a confusing, war torn dim ...

Archangel's Heart

It’s hard to imagine that Angel’s Blood, the first of Nalini SIngh’s Guild Hunter books, was originally just a stand-alone, (according to an FAQ I read). There’s such a wealth of world building that one could believe that the author had conceived of vampire kisses (not what you think), Co ...

Race the Darkness

While I wouldn't want a steady diet of them, I do enjoy well-written dark romances every now and again. Many of my favorites tend to have well-developed characters, razor sharp tension and a great degree of complexity, and they challenge me to take my mind places I wouldn't ordinarily go.  Race the ...

Vespers

I love vampire stories, but it has been some time since I read a good one. Vespers has changed that. It’s a good vampire story and an engaging romance, too. Sarasija Mishra (Sara) travels three thousand miles across the States to Louisiana to meet his contact Ms. Alves, and then start work as a ...

Made for Sin

Earlier this year, I discovered the magic that is Stacia Kane's Downside Ghosts series. I immediately fell in love with her multi-layered characters and her superbly unique setting. When I saw her latest offering, Made for Sin available for review, I was eager to give it a try. I wondered how it, a ...

Wild Embrace

I have long been a fan of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series. I remember vividly the first time I opened up Slave to Sensation, and I’ve consistently snapped up the fourteen books that followed as soon as they were released. Wild Embrace has proved no different regarding either my excitement l ...

Her Rogue Alpha

Her Rogue Alpha is the fifth book in Paige Tyler's X-Ops series, combining military and government forces special operation missions with paranormal elements, specifically characters that are shifters or genetically enhanced hybrids. The combination of tight, action packed sequences with the skills ...

Cat's Lair

Hey, look, it’s time for a rant! Why do I keep reading Christine Feehan? At this point, it is more habit than anything else, because goodness knows this book infuriated me. Incessantly. I like a good alpha hero as much as the next reader, but this whole story took things way too far. Basically, ...

Dark Carousel

Oh, those Carpathians! Christine Feehan’s vampiric warriors are back for the thirtieth time to brood, lust and make your knees quiver in the latest addition to the series, Dark Carousel. The wonderfully-named Charlotte Vintage manages to capture Tariq Asenguard’s attention with her scent when ...
