The Bear's Chosen Mate

Vivian Arend is a prolific Canadian romance writer. I first discovered her books with her Adrenaline Search and Rescue series (which I love!) set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and then I dove into her multiple contemporary series set in and around Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. But she's also wel ...

Gentleman Wolf

After a few recent forays into contemporary romance, Joanna Chambers returns to historicals and to the city of Edinburgh for her latest novel, Gentleman Wolf, the first in her Capital Wolves Duet.  As the title suggests, this is a story with a touch of the paranormal, although the paranormal elemen ...

Wolf Rain

It’s raining wolves! Hallelujah! Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling world began with Slave to Sensation, and then transitioned into the Psy-Changeling Trinity world with the book Silver Silence. This is the third book in the Trinity half of the series and, due to the sequential nature of the series, ...

Forever Wolf

Maria Vale's The Legend of All Wolves series is a unique entry in the broad and popular world of shifter romances. No one would define it as cute or fun, so if that's the kind of paranormal romance you want, you'll have to look elsewhere. But if you like a meaty story full of gristle to chew on, you ...

The Wolf at Bay

If you haven’t read The Wolf at the Door, the first book in the Big Bad Wolf series, be warned - there are spoilers in this review.  In it, the author introduced readers to a world in which werewolves exist, although humans are largely unaware of them.  I was completely sucked into the suspense ...

The Wolf at the Door

In January, I had the pleasure of reading The Wolf at the Door, the début novel from Charlie Adhara.  I thought it was terrific and couldn’t wait to review it for All About Romance.  So you can imagine my surprise when, after receiving an early copy of the second book in the series, The Wolf at ...

The Last Wolf

Maria Vale’s The Last Wolf is not at all what I expected. I thought I’d get a fast-paced, spicy shifter romance, much like others I’ve loved. This book, this heroine was unexpected. In all the right ways. Shifters and werewolves are different in this world. A werewolf must turn into a wo ...

Slave to Sensation (#58 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on September 30, 2006 This is the first book I've read by Nalini Singh, but it won’t be my last. I kept wishing that work would stop interrupting my reading time...isn’t a three hour lunch acceptable these days? The author created an all-around terri ...

Night Shift

Night Shift is a collection of three alternate reality/paranormal romances and one fantasy romance, all by established genre authors. The first three stories were solid visits to worlds those authors have written about in other books, which contributes to the generally-strong worldbuilding in the co ...

Silver Silence

Every time I read a new book by Nalini Singh, I think she’s reached her peak. Few authors who have a backlist as long as hers would get such unequivocal praise from me, but after years of enjoying Ms. Singh’s world building and character building (across two series, no less!) I expect nothing le ...
