High Stakes

Vampires in Vegas! Why hasn’t anyone thought of this yet and if they did, why haven’t I heard anything? The premise had almost everything I love in a book: vamps, humor and hot lovin’. I hoped and prayed this would be a winner but it wasn’t. Erin McCarthy just didn’t pull through this tim ...

Undead and Unpopular

Despite the perks, being the Queen of Vampires isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. True, her Vampire Highness Betsy Taylor gets to live forever, is perpetually thirty, and is about to marry vampire hottie, Eric Sinclair, but even a Vampire Queen has to deal with unpleasant house-guests, relati ...

Dark Need

Having read few vampire novels other than Christine Feehan’s, many of the plot elements within Dark Need hold a degree of fascination for me and I don’t know if it is because I am not well versed in this sub-genre or if it is truly gifted writing. I am willing to bet it’s the latter because, ...

A Bite to Remember

A brief look into the unpleasant aspects of being a vampire: You’re dead. No matter how you sing and dance, being a vampire means having to die, then rising again in a not-alive form. Now we can argue about the semantics of being ‘undead’, but the fact is, you still pretty much count as a ...

Past Redemption

Okay, you tell me. A book features a 500-year-old, beautiful vampire who's helping the government in a super-secret agency to fight terrorists and assorted other bad guys all while fighting her attraction to the man she recently turned into a vampire. Sound exciting? Sound like it's a page-turner? ...

The Devil’s Knight

Lucy Blue has gotten some good buzz on the our message boards and I'm happy to find that buzz warranted, for The Devil’s Knight is an exciting, great read. Rebel brigands attack the partially finished castle belonging to Tristan, a Norman nobleman, and because the peasants inside help them, the ...

The Burning

Ann Van Helsing had a gift that was more like a curse: when she touched someone, she knew their entire life story along with their emotions of anger, hate, love etc. This "gift" kept Ann isolated on her estate with her uncle, afraid to touch anyone and feared by the villagers, who thought her a witc ...

Lover Eternal

I’ve been on an Urban Fantasy/paranormal kick lately so I was happy to read the new one by Ms. Ward for review. I read her first in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series when it came out, and though it wasn’t a DIK, I did enjoy it enough to be looking forward to the second - in spite of a few quir ...

The Vampire's Seduction

Remember those episodes of Angel that were just too fight-y? The ones when all the great interactions between Angel and Cordy or Lilah and Lindsay became lost in a sea of grunts and kicks and stakings? I found myself thinking of those less than stellar moments as I read The Vampire’s Seduction, th ...

The Reluctant Miss Van Helsing

Vampires and satire. What could be more fun? I went into this tale of a reluctant vampire huntress hoping for a fun diversion. While it did have a few funny moments, the book also featured historical missteps that yanked me right out of the story and comedy which did not hit the spot for me at all. ...
