Silver Rain

Take the Sleeping Beauty legend, give it a nifty gender twist, throw in a huge dollop of magic, a lot of sex appeal, and a bit of humor. The result is Silver Rain, a light-hearted and highly entertaining fantasy romp that only stumbles a bit as a romance. In 1797, Alain Devereaux watches as th ...

Night Secrets

Norah-Jean Perkin's first romance for LoveSpell is part time-travel, part ghost, and part contemporary romance. All the action takes place in the present, and while the pacing and general quality of writing was strong enough to keep the pages turning, the book is plagued by a number of character and ...

You're the One

I'm only a "sometimes" fan of paranormal romance. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a woo-woo element and I'll want to read about a ghostly visitor or a time-traveling hero. Probably because of my hit-or-miss approach, that's what I usually end up with, either a hit or a miss. Occasionally I find someth ...

Out of the Blue

Maryellen Caswell has to be the screamiest heroine I've ever had the misfortune to read about. I wanted to punch her before I was even halfway through this book. Not that she doesn't have a lot to deal with. A commercial artist in New York City, Maryellen wakes up one morning ...

A Stranger's Kiss

What a promising set-up. I've read quite a few paranormal romances where the hero is an angel, fallen or otherwise, and vampire and werewolf heroes are quite common. But this is the first time that I've ever read a romance where the hero is a devil - a real, honest to badness devil. Too bad the stor ...

Star Light, Star Bright

It's always something of a gamble when a romance novel contains paranormal elements. They might make a book more memorable than the typical conventional read, but if there are flaws, they tend to be more glaring. Katherine Stone's Star Light, Star Bright has an isolated fantasy aspect and a psycholo ...

A Season of Miracles

Heather Graham manages to weave breathtaking suspense, paranormal happenings, and Christmas magic into a unique and enchanting love story. A Season Of Miracles kept me up late to see what happened next, and how it all turned out. And isn't that what a good book is supposed to do? Jillian Llewelly ...

Bitten

Oooohh, I love a good monster story! Vampires, werewolves, the supernatural, the undead; I just eat them up. If you're like me, and you're always up for some romance served spooky style, Bitten, Kelley Armstrong's first book, is one of the best on the menu this year. Elena Michaels is a werewolf, ...
