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 ...

Bound By Night

Vampire romances have become passé in recent years, falling out of favor for new and shiny creatures such as demons, angels, werewolves, and the like. Post-Twilight the sub-genre has become rife for mockery and parody and, given some of what has been published, for good reason. I’m pleased to say ...

Eternal Demon

Most paranormals these days are a part of a series. That makes this job particularly difficult. The books you need to read that you are thrust into the middle of a series sometimes means you don't go into the story with all the background information you need. In the case of Eternal Demon, that mean ...

Lover at Last

After slogging through six hundred pages of nothing much happening except for the cynical additions of several characters and story arcs, I am officially through with the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Lover at Last was supposed to be the highly anticipated culmination of the m/m romance that has been br ...

Lover Reborn

A friend asked me how I can review books and whether or not doing so destroyed my enjoyment of the story. She suggested that concentrating on the ins and outs would take too much away from the story and ruin the reading experience. To me, that is what makes the difference between a good book and a g ...

Lothaire

Kresley Cole is one of the few writers I know the release dates for and usually pre-order her books so I can start reading that very day. Needless to say, I’m slightly addicted to the IAD series and have been waiting for Lothaire for a long, long time and I wasn’t disappointed. Lothaire, The ...

Damien

Narrated by Xe Sands Damien, Prince of the Vampires, enters the interspecies marrying loop in Jacquelyn Frank’s fourth Nightwalker entry. Damien is my favorite in this series for two reasons. First, it keeps moving, whether by dialogue or action and without the verboseness that irked me previou ...

Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs

Narrated by Amanda Ronconi Amanda Ronconi is a new narrator for me, just as Molly Harper is a new author. I was very happy with both and found myself laughing out loud throughout this book. Nice Girl’s Don’t Have Fangs is a light, humorous, “Sookie Stackhouse meets Queen Betsy” listen. Sm ...

Heartless

Reviewing Paranormals, Fantasy, Steampunk, and, well, anything with a lot of world building is getting to be a somewhat dicey proposition. When I first started reviewing, there were a handful of authors that we insisted reviewers be completely up to date on before reviewing the latest. That number i ...

Everdark

This book has a lot going for it. First is the surprisingly good-looking and relevant cover. Second is the cast of denizens of Savannah, Georgia's darker side, including tattoo artists, vampires, and Gullah mystics. Third is a plot filled with pop culture, violence, murder, mysticism, sex, and more ...
