The Magic of Christmas

Anthology
I'm not a big fan of anthologies, but I enjoyed this one--probably because it contained four longer stories intend of five shorter ones. The paranormal elements added to the stories, and all the stories had elements of humor as well. ...

Rejar

"He was a totally sexual creature. Handsome as sin, sensual as silk. His name was Rejar..." For those who haven't read it yet, I suggest you begin and finish Rejar while listening to Loreena McKennitt's new CD, The Book of Secrets. You will then understand for the first time perhaps the full me ...

Mine to Take

"It is not in the being, but in the recognizing" Yaniff, The MysticI was privy to these cryptic words weeks before I received the galleys of this book, but they never carried more meaning than in its conclusion, and perhaps, in my own life. For if Dara Joy's Rejar (which preceded this story) is the ...

The Fire Opal

Can we be honest here? I gave up reading V.C. Andrews novels years ago, with no desire to start up again. All through Connie Flynn's The Fire Opal, I kept thinking I was in the middle of one.

One Bright Star

One Bright Star contains many elements of a romance. It is a contemporary, an adventure, a paranormal, as well as science fiction, and while the contemporary/adventure elements shine, the science fiction fizzles. Imaginative story elements are combined here to intrigue the reader, but it is done at ...

An Angel for Emily

An Angel for Emily could best be described as a contemporary/paranormal/suspense/reincarnation/romance story, or, in other words, too much. You know how stress can make you feel like eating a whole bag of Oreos in one sitting? Well, that's about how I felt when I finished reading this book; I was co ...

Knight of a Trillion Stars

Knight of a Trillion Stars launched Dara Joy as one of the more sensual (to put it mildly!) romance writers around. It is followed by Rejar and you really ought to read them both in order to get the full effect. Deana Jones is having a horrible day. She's just been fired, and when she goes to the ...
