The Last Twilight

I already had a Dirk and Steele novel in my tbr pile, so I was happy for the chance to review The Last Twilight , the most recent installment in this unique series. Luckily, the story stands on its own, so I wasn’t lost. In fact, the hints of backstory, mixed with the success of this book, only en ...

Queen of Dragons

Favorite books are funny things. Much like relationships, they are never perfect - they just have to be perfect for you. Shana Abé works for me. I recognize the problems in her books, but, for the most part, I just don’t mind. Take Queen of Dragons, for instance, the third and lates ...

Chasing Midnight

As I began my first vampire/werewolf romance, I was a little skeptical. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the setting, plot, and characters Susan Krinard creates in Chasing Midnight. Allie Chase was the belle of Long Island society until she was stricken with a debilitating illnes ...

Lure of the Wolf

When I picked up The Lure of the Wolf, I thought that I was in for another fun shapeshifter series. Unfortunately, I found cardboard, beefcake males who spurn clothing, and the women who have sex with them for two days straight and call it love. There was also a fantastic alternate reality world tha ...

Caressed By Ice

What is it about emotionally distant men that make my inner heroine stand up and take notice? Inner masochism? Love of a challenge? Bone-deep belief in the power of love? Whatever it is, it was on high alert through Nalini Singh’s third installment in her Changeling/Psy/Human world - Caressed by I ...

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 ...

Master of Dragons

Master of Dragons is the latest in Angela Knight's Mageverse, the alternate world of Avalon and King Arthur. This is not the King Arthur and the Round Table of the Dark Ages, though, and as a result, for much of the time I spent reading the book, I felt like I was involved in a game of Dungeons and ...

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 ...

The Dream Thief

It's a given, for me, that any book Shana Abe creates will be a beautifully written, lyrical story that captures all your senses. She could probably turn my grocery list into some type of poetry. But is that enough? No. If there isn't enough plot and character dimension, all the lush descriptions wo ...

Broken

Although I have enjoyed the previous books in the Women of the Otherworld series, this one was definitely not my favorite. It was nice to see Elena and Clay featured again, but I felt that they spent most of the book running in circles, chasing their tails (pun intended). For those that aren ...
