Queen of Nothing

This review contains spoilers for the first two books in The Folk of Air series. At the end of The Wicked King, the second book in Black's marvelous The Folk of the Air series, Cardan, the King of Faerie, banishes Jude to the mortal world decreeing: “I exile Jude Duarte to the mortal world. Un ...

Royal Enchantment

Royal Enchantment and the books in the Camelot Reborn series work under the premise that King Arthur and his Knights were suspended in time in order to defend humans against a future magical threat by Queen Morgan le Fae and her people.  It sounded like something I might enjoy since I’ve loved st ...

As You Wish

By
It seems to be my month for happy surprises. When I picked up Gabi Stevens' As You Wish for review I had a measure of dread because the previous book in the series was Not My Cup of Tea, even though I found it oddly charming. I don't know how she did it, but Ms. Stevens sucked me in again, and I re ...

The Sleeping Beauty

Fairy Tales were my very first introduction to romance, as I imagine they were for many others. I have always loved not just the HEA ending but the whole structure of the tales - the battle against evil, the good and clever hero and the beautiful and clever heroine. That is why when Mercedes Lackey ...

Velvet Haven

Velvet Haven would be better classified as a paranormal romance rather than an erotic romance. It doesn’t have the tendency to place the main characters into slightly incredible situations for the sake of sex, which is a very, very good thing. However, the story itself, while starting off interest ...

Queene of Light

I’ve been curious about Armintrout’s vampire series, so I was happy to read the first book of her newest series, Lightworld/Darkworld. The worldbuilding was well-done and interesting, but the character development and budding romance were sadly lacking. Had I felt more connected to the character ...

Fairyville

Emma Holly is just a pleasure to read. Sexy, erotic, hot, steamy, it’s true, but also smooth, considered, well-crafted, and oh-so-easy to read. Holly is one of those writers whose writing never gets in the way of the story. Fairyville, Arizona isn’t like other towns. Fairyvillers are alwa ...

The Saint

Is that you, Santy Claus? No, it sure isn't. Forget everything you know about Santa Claus because I have news for you, he sure isn't a right jolly old elf. Try immortal, gorgeous and fey instead - a death fey to be exact. For those that haven't read the previous books in Melanie Jackson's lutin (gob ...

The Silver Rose

The Silver Rose is the last book in Susan Carroll's Sisters of Faire Isle trilogy. It beautifully weaves all the threads left dangling from the first two books into a rich tapestry of magic, history, passion, intrigue, and impossible love. Faire Isle has undergone a drastic change from when we fi ...

Forbidden Magic

Fantasy and Paranormal Romances seem to be everywhere these days, and Cheyenne McCray's Forbidden Magic stands as one of the most entertaining I've read in some time. While not perfect, it is a sexy and exciting read. Silver Ashcroft is a D'Anu witch, sworn to practice only white magic. Witho ...
