Twice Bitten

I’ve enjoyed the Chicagoland Vampires since the first book, Some Girls Bite, and Twice Bitten is a solid installment in the series. The story flows well and the characters remain their interesting selves, although I was a little disappointed that the heroine, Merit, loses her nerve for a big chunk ...

Lover Awakened

Favorite Romance Audiobook Poll Winner - First place - Favorite Paranormal Romance Audiobook 2011 Narrated by Jim Frangione Although I’m generally not a fan of vampire romance, I’ve now read (or listened to) Lover Awakened five times (a personal record). Declaring that it is a romance favo ...

Blood Born

A war is brewing between human and vampire. Problem is, neither side declared it. Luca Ambrose is one of the rarest of the rare: Born vampire rather than a turned one. His powers are stronger, his senses more acute. For the past several years he has worked as an enforcer for the Council, the gove ...

Lover Mine

You know the oft-repeated sentiment that J.R. Ward’s books are like crack? I may be ready to check into rehab. This one feels overstuffed with multiple storylines, highlights the author’s problems in creating compelling women, and frequently left me with a WTF expression on my face. Needless ...

Sunrise in a Garden of Love and Evil

I know some folks are a little burned out on vampires, but I still enjoy a good vampire book now and again and the cover blurb for Sunrise in a Garden of Love and Evil made me curious. It's part of Dorchester's Publisher's Pledge program, a program designed to promote books it considers particularl ...

The Vampire and the Virgin

Yes, I am tired of vampires. Yes, the title The Vampire and the Virgin is silly, but yes, I sat up late happily reading it. Any romance fan who’s been reading the genre for any length of time knows that a very good book can hide behind a very silly title – and that’s exactly the case here. ...

Shades of Midnight

I’m very picky when it comes to vampire romances – not just anything will do. Lara Adrian is a paranormal author who usually delivers for me and she continues to do so with Shades of Midnight, the latest installment in her Midnight Breed series. Alexandra Maguire is an Alaska ...

Caleb

Writing this review, I was reminded of an old Disney song: "For every high, there is a low/For every stop, there is a go." I find it's the nature of C grade books that for every Good, there's a big fat But, and the first installment in Sarah McCarty's new Shadow Wrangler series is no different. ...

Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men

Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men continues the adventures of Jane Jameson, former children’s librarian turned vampire. While I will admit to being tired of the undead, I will make an exception for Jane. This is one of the funniest books I have read this year and Jane is a delightful character. ...

Time for Eternity

Frankie Suchet, a bartender living in modern day New York, has a serious grudge against Henri Foucault: In 1794 he turned her into a vampire and she hates it. So, when she gets the chance to travel back in time to kill him before he turns her into a blood-sucking monster, she grabs it with open arms ...
