The Bleeding Dusk

Buffy sure did start something, didn’t she? I have read many new paranormal series staring feisty, powerful heroines and their boys. While I’ve been disappointed more often than not, there have been some diamonds in the rough. Gleason’s Gardella Vampire Chronicles is just such a diamond. I am ...

Halfway to the Grave

I know all the reasons why people are tired of the endless stream of paranormal novels being pushed in the bookstores. Take a glance at the new paperbacks display in any Borders or Barnes and Noble and you get it. Here's a mystery with a heroine who can sense dead people, here's a chick lit with a ...

The Accidental Vampire

The best part of reading is when you become so absorbed in a story, that you lose track of your surroundings. That is what happened to me while reading The Accidental Vampire. I was flying home and the stewardess had to ask me twice if I wanted something to drink. I had not even noticed that she was ...

Midnight Awakening

I don’t know what went wrong with the first two books in Lara Adrian’s Breed series. I gave a good attempt to read them, but found myself liking them as little as my fellow AAR reviewers and giving up. I called myself every type of crazy for choosing Midnight Awakening to review, thinking I was ...

C
Demon's Kiss

I’ve read some of Shayne’s novels about witches and was very impressed with her writing, so I was excited to read Demon’s Kiss, the first book in a new vampire trilogy. The story began strongly, with intelligent writing and an exciting plot, but became increasingly less enjoyable as time went ...

One with the Shadows

In a market glutted with vampire romances, Susan Squires writes tales that stand out and One With the Shadows is certainly a book to remember. Featuring an unusual and strangely likable heroine and a dark, tortured hero, this novel both moves the reader and keeps one riveted by suspense. ...

Lover Unbound

To begin, if you haven’t read any of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and you plan to start, please don’t read any further because this review does contain series spoilers. Still here? Let’s get to the big question: Does J.R. Ward deliver on the Vishous book? From my perspectiv ...

B
Return to Me

With so many paranormal romances being published, it's hard to find plots and characters that are original and fresh. Julia Templeton’s Return to Me is fresh, due mainly to the secondary romance of the hero’s homosexual brother. Templeton has taken a chance here - and it works. Darius Mac ...

Dark Possession

Dark Possession is the 18th book in Christine Feehan's Carpathian series. The description of the book intrigued me, from the highly intelligent race of predators with deeply protective instincts, to the whole concept of the life-mate, let alone the Brazilian jungle setting and shape-shifting jaguar ...

B
Something Wicked

It’s not news that there are a lot of paranormals out there. Sadly, it is sort of news for me, though, when I come across one lately that I actually like. Regan Cluny is an investigative reporter hot on the trail of a reclusive millionaire financing an archeological dig about which rumors are s ...
