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 ...

Wolfsong

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reviewing The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.  I loved it and recommended it to everyone I know.  Since then, I was certain - convinced really - that no other book could or would top my best of list for 2016 (though Cat Sebastian’s The Soldier’s Scoundrel c ...

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 ...

Wolf on a Mission

I took a risk selecting Wolf on a Mission. It is book six in the Salvation Pack series and N.J. Walters is a completely new-to-me author. My gamble paid off in this case as I found the book to be a good point of entry for a new reader and I liked the world created for the characters. Wolf packs a ...

Wolf, en Garde

A well written, well plotted, werewolf story – what a pleasant surprise this novel was. Before I read Wolf en Garde I bought and read Wolf WY, the opener for this series. I really liked the writing and enjoyed the romance and love story. Although much of this novel is set in Washi ...
