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 ...

Forest of Thorns and Claws

A well-researched novel about conservation and tiger shifters in Sumatra, J.T. Hall’s Forest of Thorns and Claws highlights the destruction and cruelty caused by greed, poaching, stupidity and deforestation in a supposedly protected rainforest. The main character, Donovan McGinnis, is a vet wit ...

The Alpha's Claim

This is the first novel I have read by this author and, as I was in the mood for a shifter romance, this looked a good choice and the enticing cover drew my eye. The Alpha’s Claim is a shifter story, with the animal in question being a coyote, or rather a pack of coyotes. Jim West, the eponymou ...

Wild Embrace

Wild Embrace is a selection of stories set in Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling world.  I found the anthology to be uneven, with the first story excellent and the last one flirting with a D. None of the tales are really “stand-alone” novellas – they will work well only for readers familiar with ...

Wild Embrace

I have long been a fan of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series. I remember vividly the first time I opened up Slave to Sensation, and I’ve consistently snapped up the fourteen books that followed as soon as they were released. Wild Embrace has proved no different regarding either my excitement l ...

Allegiance of Honor

Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series is now sixteen books strong and I do mean strong. Every one of the books has exhibited consistent quality, with excellent world building going hand in hand with good character development and sweet, sensual romance. Allegiance of Honor carries on that tradition ...
