The Forever Kiss

Although there are some paranormal novels that I can appreciate, there are just as many that often do not make the grade since an interesting concept can quickly turn tacky. Yet, The Forever Kiss takes a common premise and makes it exciting and romantic. But, more importantly, this first single titl ...

Undead and Unemployed

For readers of Undead and Unwed, you know what to expect here. A sarcastic heroine who's so totally not cool with her vampiric status and, horror of horrors, her exalted position as the vampire Queen; a sexy stud of a vampire king and our heroine's consort whether she likes it or not; a troop of fel ...

I Thirst for You

I Thirst for You is the fourth book I've read by Susan Sizemore, who seems to be somewhat uneven as an author. I enjoyed her 2001 vampire fiction release, Laws of the Blood: Companions, but this new book is saturated with lust and cheese and almost devoid of characterization. Jo Elliot is a pi ...

A Tale of Two Vikings

A Tale of Two Viking is a flat-out farce. Like a lot of farces, it has its share of lines that induce groans as well as laughs, but it moves so fast that the laughs far outweigh the groans. Don't mistake this for an accurate picture of Viking life, just sit back, relax and prepare to be entertained. ...

Sex and The Single Vampire

I have to admit, I decided to review this book because of the title. Vampires and sex, how much more intriguing can you get? Indeed, the book does become as interesting as the title, but unfortunately you have to get through the first couple of chapters of overstuffed inner monologue from the main c ...

Edge of Twilight

As a newbie in regards to Maggie Shayne, I wasn't sure what to expect. With the explosion of the paranormal market we're seeing vampires and werewolves and shape shifters galore. Where Ms. Shayne's latest Wings in the Night book fell in the spectrum of the creepy and undead was mine to discover. Hap ...

Love Bites

With a fang-in-neck title like Love Bites, it's pretty clear that this vampire story is supposed to keep company with some of the more light-hearted vampire books reviewed elsewhere on this site. Unfortunately, the humor is hard to discern, the vampire aesthetic weakened for the sake of convenience, ...

Undead and Unwed

Undead and Unwed is a riot of a book that, like its heroine, never takes itself seriously and pokes fun at romance, vampire and chick lit clichés. The language is rough, the sex and "almost" sex is a perfect blend of edgy meets funny (and fits the tone of the book), and I haven’t laughed so hard ...

Dark Melody

There's something to be said for an author who paints such an erotic image of a woman getting her blood sucked that you find yourself appraising the incisors of every man you meet. But although I enjoyed reading about the Carpathians in Christine Feehan's Dark Melody, the writing style was problemat ...

A Girl's Guide to Vampires

The author dedicates this book to Christine Feehan, and I thought of it as the flip side of the Carpathian universe. I enjoyed this book tremendously until about three-fourths of the way through it. Then the heroine, who had been sarcastic and witty, suddenly became annoying, bordering on TSTL. What ...
