Vampires

The Lady Rogue

Jenn Bennett evokes classic movies and stories of derring-do in her latest novel, Lady Rogue. Set in Europe in 1937, this fun twist on the treasure hunting tales of yore is laden with romance, adventure, and just a touch of magic. The last time Theo (Theodora) Fox saw sexy Irish hunk Huck Gallagh ...

Vespers

I love vampire stories, but it has been some time since I read a good one. Vespers has changed that. It’s a good vampire story and an engaging romance, too. Sarasija Mishra (Sara) travels three thousand miles across the States to Louisiana to meet his contact Ms. Alves, and then start work as a ...

Soul to Keep

Soul To Keep is book 3 in Rebekah Weatherspoon's Vampire Sorority Sisters series. I was initially intrigued by the premise, but very quickly determined that, for a few critical reasons, the story simply didn't work for me. Things might have gone a bit better if I had started at the beginning of the ...

Darkness Raging

Before I get into the plot of Darkness Raging, I want to caution readers who are not caught up with the Otherworld series not to read this review. Unfortunately, I can't adequately review this, the eighteenth entry in the series, without revealing some pretty serious spoilers relating to earlier boo ...

Midnight Secretary

Kaya Satozuka becomes the secretary for Kyouhei Tohma, a director at Tohma Corp and a secret vampire. Kaya’s competence wins her the secretary gig, but it’s her strangely delicious blood that makes Kyouhei fixate on her. Since blood becomes more delicious when a woman is aroused (convenient!), s ...

Taken by Midnight

Taken by Midnight is eighth in Adrian’s Midnight Breed series. As this is my first of the series, my review may be drastically different from one who has read all the books. Lara Adrian did an excellent job of making the world of The Order come alive to a first-time reader. However, if I had read ...

Jane and the Damned

Curiosity has led to some interesting reads in the past. In this case it was combination of an author I’ve heard to be unique and witty (Janet Mullany), writing about a subject I’m sick to death of (vampires), set in an overdone era (Regency), starring a heroine that made me think “oh good gra ...

B
Twice Bitten

I’ve enjoyed the Chicagoland Vampires since the first book, Some Girls Bite, and Twice Bitten is a solid installment in the series. The story flows well and the characters remain their interesting selves, although I was a little disappointed that the heroine, Merit, loses her nerve for a big chunk ...

B-
Insatiable

Another author has been seduced by creatures of the night. Insatiable is the first book of a new vampire series by Meg Cabot. While the premise of the story is rather familiar, and it’s getting a bit old to see more and more authors jump on the bandwagon, the book is well-written and I’m still i ...

C+
Master of Fire

While Master of Fire was generally interesting and easy to read, the weak plot and ultimately superficial characters made this book less than a keeper. Logan MacRoy is a Lieutenant in a police bomb squad in Greendale County, South Carolina. He also happens to be the mortal son of King Arthur and ...
