Fangs

If you follow webcomics, Sarah Andersen is the creator of Sarah’s Scribbles, a delightfully funny four-panel commentary on her daily life and neuroses. I didn’t realise that she also wrote a paranormal webcomic called Fangs, which is available on the Tapas platform. Those comics, plus a few neve ...

Working Stiffs : An m/m vampire charity romance anthology

Working Stiffs : An m/m vampire charity romance anthology is a collection of thirteen short stories and novellas, and proceeds from sales will go to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.  I generally find anthologies to be a mixed bag and that’s true of Working Stif ...

Sweep of the Blade

Sweep of the Blade is the swashbuckling conclusion to the romance of Arland and Maude, which began in One Fell Sweep, book three of the Innkeeper Chronicles.  It very much reads like the completion to their love story, so I would recommend starting the saga at its very beginning with Clean Sweep. T ...

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 ...

Blood Kiss

Every morning for over forty years, my cousin has eaten a chocolate frosted Poptart™ for breakfast. Every morning.  I once asked her if she didn’t get sick of the same thing every single day, and she just shrugged, saying she likes what she likes. If you like J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Bro ...

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 ...
