Dreamfever

As Winston Churchill once said: It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. I am, of course, referring to what exactly is happening in the Fever series. When last we left our intrepid heroine, Mac, she had become the consort/prisoner of the Unseelie Princes. Unfortunately, these gentleme ...

Extraordinary

The readers on my Christmas list normally get gift cards to Borders or B&N, but in 2009 I loved two books so much I felt that I had to share them with others. One of those books was Nancy Werlin's Impossible, a retelling of the story in the song Scarborough Fair. Those of you who have heard the ...

The Prince of Frogs

The Prince of Frogs is an interesting sequel to Night’s Rose, but I can’t say that I am fully satisfied with the direction things are going. There is less actual fighting in this story, and the conflicts are much more personal. This is not bad by any means, but characterization is extremely impo ...

Faefever

While I enjoy urban fantasy, I’m always aware that it’s a genre that will often lack a HEA and is sometimes written in first person, something I can find annoying. Faefever has both of those characteristics, and, though I found reading it occasionally frustrating, I was captivated. MacKayla L ...

Changeling

To put it plainly, Changeling disappointed me. One of its main problems is an overabundance of plot. There are just too many things vying for space and time here. The first book in the series, Witchling, also suffered from this problem. I keep coming back for more because I genuinely like the charac ...

She's No Faerie Princess

I have a soft spot for fairy tales. I guess I’ve been a sucker for them since I was a kid being tucked in at night with a couple of Grimm’s classics for bedtime fare. So, combining fairy tales and steamy romance is always a winner in my book. And, as the title implies, She’s No Faerie Princ ...

Wicked Charms

Wicked Charms is well-titled: the first word that springs to mind to describe it is charming. It is the story of a man and a woman, both of whom are willing to marry without love in order to gain a castle. Aiden Brinlaw is one of the most lovable rogues I’ve had the pleasure to meet in romance ...

Traveler

I’ve been waiting for a good fusion of romance and urban fantasy, and Melanie Jackson’s Traveler provides just that. It’s a love story set in an inner-city Detroit that has become infested with dark magic. The world that Jackson created resembles our own, except that it was once populated b ...

Tears of the Moon

Tears of the Moon is a delightful addition to Nora Roberts' Gallagher Siblings trilogy. It has the hallmarks one expects from a Nora Roberts book - well-developed characters, great dialogue, and a quaint Irish setting to boot. Readers who have been anxiously awaiting this installment won't be disapp ...
