Vampire Romance

Twilight Fall

I really enjoyed the previous book in Viehl's Darkyn series, so I was disappointed when this sixth installment fell flat. Unremarkable lead characters and an unconvincing romance take center stage in Twilight Fall. The author's talent, however, saves it from being entirely ordinary, as quite a bit ...

Evermore

I've only just recently started reading Viehl’s Darkyn series, even though I’ve been meaning to for quite a while. For the most part I’ve enjoyed the books, but I was particularly pleased after finishing Evermore, which is the fifth installment. It was by far my favorite of the series and th ...

The Veil: Otherworld

The dedication page to The Veil: Otherworld reads: “To my fellow vampire lovers – may we continue to pooh-pooh the ubiquitous predictions of our genre’s demise.” If some of her "fellow vampire lovers" can also approximate H.A. Fowler's story-telling skill, the security of the vampire in roma ...

Hungers of the Heart

Hungers of the Heart is the fourth in Jenna Black’s Guardians of the Night series. At first I was so lost it wasn’t even funny, but as I continued to read, I began to put the pieces of the puzzle together. However, I never really got my bearings and I’m sure someone who has read the entire s ...

Because Your Vampire Said So

I have mentioned in a past review that I prefer the lighter side of vampires, so Michele Bardsley's series about soccer mom vampires should be right up my alley. I had not read any of the previous books in the Broken Heart series, and, after reading Because Your Vampire Said So, I'm glad to have mi ...

One Foot in the Grave

One Foot in the Grave is the second book in the Night Huntress series, featuring a half-vampire named Cat. While at first I thought this was just another average vampire novel, by the end I was intrigued and look forward to reading the next book. I could even look past the fact that the hero has one ...

Midnight Rising

Midnight Rising is the fourth installment of the Adrian’s Midnight Breed series. The plot immediately drew me in and I liked its thoroughly tortured hero, Rio. Because the action is light, the hero and heroine - and their relationship - got the attention they deserved. Although not all great, this ...

The Undead Next Door

After reading two really bad vampire romances in a row, I’m ready to take a little break from this genre. The back of The Undead Next Door lists three signs that your new man is “different.” Here are three signs that you need to read a different book: 1. You look at the page number every coup ...

Vampires are Forever

I bought one of Sands’ Argeneau books from Borders right before I received her latest to review. I felt a little bold spending money on an author I hadn't yet read – I usually use gift certificates or used book credit to test the waters. So naturally, I really disliked Vampires Are Forever. On t ...
