Saving Midnight

Saving Midnight follows Breaking Midnight and Kissing Midnight in The Fitz Clare Chronicles. Since I haven’t read the first two books in the series, I was afraid I’d be totally at sea, but I was not as lost as I thought. Even so, I suspect that someone who has read the other books in the series ...

Forbidden Nights With A Vampire

Forbidden Nights With a Vampire is the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant tale of Vanda Barkowski, a vampire who has a problem with her temper. I read Kerrelyn Sparks's first book in this series, How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire, but not the others, something I plan to remedy as soon as possible ...

Kissing Midnight

I'm a big – big – fan of Emma Holly who writes hot sex as well as great couples. I'm also a big – big – fan of stories in a series that stand on their own. They usually encompass a larger world of characters, but provide sufficient focus on two main ones. So when I read an Emma Holly series ...

Lover Avenged

More than most books, I think, this one isn’t going to change any minds. If you’re expecting to like it, you will. If you’re not, then you probably won’t.  And, yep, to put to rest an issue that’s still out there, this first hardcover in the author’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series d ...

Dead and Gone

Note: This review contains series spoilers. This one is tough to write because…well, gee, because I just can’t tell you much of anything about the plot without spoiling the book for Sookie readers – something I really, really don’t want to do. For those new to the party, my ...

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs

Veil of Midnight

I reviewed one of the Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed vampire books in 2007 and wasn’t impressed. Positive buzz on this series convinced me try it again though and, I have to admit, I’m glad I did. It’s been a while since I’ve read the author so I obviously haven’t followed ...

Zen and the Art of Vampires

It’s been years since I last read a book by Katie MacAlister. Since titles by the author seem to be multiplying bunny-style in bookstores these days, I thought it was time I checked in to see if she is still as cutesy-poo a writer as I remembered her to be. She is. This one is ...

One Bite with a Stranger

I know I’m getting cranky, but, gee, would it be too much to ask to actually expect a flippin’ story in a romance novel? I mean, how many 50-page sex scenes can you take? This one is yet another in Christine Warren’s The Others series featuring (let me know if you’ve h ...

I Want You to Want Me

Is there anything more generic than a generic vampire? The vampire in this one has all the personality and verve of Safeway brand ketchup. And the heroine – his total match in blandness, by the way – has the ability of a CVS brand paper towel to bounce back from varying forms of vampirical ...
