Lover Avenged

More than most books, I think, this one isn’t going to change any minds. If you’re expecting to like it, you will. If you’re not, then you probably won’t.  And, yep, to put to rest an issue that’s still out there, this first hardcover in the author’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series d ...

When Twilight Burns

I’ve been a fan of this series from the beginning and the fourth book in the author’s Gardella Vampire Chronicles certainly keeps the momentum going. I have a big problem, however: I can’t really reveal much about the plot without spoiling the previous books in the series and, since I’m all ...

The Darkest Kiss

Riley Jensen's latest case is complicated from the start: a high profile politician has been murdered, and his socialite prostitute is also dead. It only gets more twisted when she is asked to look into a BDSM-related death that seems to be suicide, but turns out to be only one of many murders commi ...

The Bleeding Dusk

Buffy sure did start something, didn’t she? I have read many new paranormal series staring feisty, powerful heroines and their boys. While I’ve been disappointed more often than not, there have been some diamonds in the rough. Gleason’s Gardella Vampire Chronicles is just such a diamond. I am ...

Midnight Awakening

I don’t know what went wrong with the first two books in Lara Adrian’s Breed series. I gave a good attempt to read them, but found myself liking them as little as my fellow AAR reviewers and giving up. I called myself every type of crazy for choosing Midnight Awakening to review, thinking I was ...

Demon's Kiss

I’ve read some of Shayne’s novels about witches and was very impressed with her writing, so I was excited to read Demon’s Kiss, the first book in a new vampire trilogy. The story began strongly, with intelligent writing and an exciting plot, but became increasingly less enjoyable as time went ...

One with the Shadows

In a market glutted with vampire romances, Susan Squires writes tales that stand out and One With the Shadows is certainly a book to remember. Featuring an unusual and strangely likable heroine and a dark, tortured hero, this novel both moves the reader and keeps one riveted by suspense. After ...

Immortals: The Awakening

When I realized that the author of the third book in the Immortals fantasy/paranormal series was the same Joy Nash who wrote two books set in the unusual and not often used time period of the Roman Empire, I boo-hoo'd a bit at the loss of another historical romance author to the paranormal romance b ...

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 ...
