Vampire Romance

Beyond the Pale

There are times when one is in the mood for hearts, flowers, tenderness, and emotional romance. Then again, sometimes one is looking for something darker and a bit more edgy. Because I like action and vampires, werewolves, and things that go bump in the night, I looked forward to reading Savann ...

I Hunger For You

I Hunger for You is the third single title in Susan Sizemore's vampire series. The series, which has hooked a multitude of readers and also features two short stories, is one I've enjoyed in the past, but I found this particular entry lacking. Colin Foxe is a Prime vampire out to have a good ...

Wicked Nights

Vampire romances are obviously a very hot market right now, and I picked up Wicked Nights expecting a variation on the dark, brooding, lonely creature of the night finally discovering his heart isn't dead after all. I kind of like that story. Unfortunately, I didn't find it here. Donna Nolan is a ...

The Companion

Ready for another vampire series? I think you just might be when said series is by the enormously gifted Susan Squires. However, while I decidedly enjoyed this first entry and certainly plan to keep reading, I wasn't quite as enthralled here as I have been in the past by the author's complex and cha ...

Dark Secret

For a long time my biggest wish for Feehan’s Carpathian romances was a strong heroine that would stand up to the extremely alpha Carpathian male. In Dark Secret, I got too much of what I wished for - the heroine is such a strong character that her relationship with the hero had violent aspects an ...

Night Bites

It can't have escaped the attention of even the most casual of romance readers that there are an awful lot of paranormals out there right now. Some are good. Some are bad. And quite a few of them – like this one – fall somewhere smack dab in that oh-so-forgettable middle ground. ...

My Demon's Kiss

I like my vampire heroes to embrace their dark side, to accept their vampire nature, however, the hero of My Demon's Kiss fights against his every step of the way, and for good reason, he viciously kills a friend immediately after becoming a vampire. The romanticized version of vampires is not prese ...

Blue Twilight

All this action stuff is getting out of hand. I'm all for a kickass heroine, but when you mix non-stop action with little to no character development and virtually no concessions for readers new to a series (like me), the end result – no matter how butt-kicking the heroine may be – is a not v ...

Midnight Harvest

This book has such an intriguing setting: the 1930s, first in Spain at the outset of the Civil War, and then in San Francisco. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? I’m not necessarily a fan of vampire novels – I’ve read as many bad ones as good ones – but The Chronicles of Saint-Germain (of whi ...

Urban Legend

Erica Orloff's Urban Legend is one of the more entertaining of the early Silhouette Bombshells. It's also somewhat uneven. The end result is a book that's a fun read, but not entirely satisfying. Tessa Van Doren is a vampire. Nearly a century ago in Shanghai, she lost a lover to his op ...
