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 ...

Lover Unbound

To begin, if you haven’t read any of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and you plan to start, please don’t read any further because this review does contain series spoilers. Still here? Let’s get to the big question: Does J.R. Ward deliver on the Vishous book? From my perspectiv ...

Return to Me

With so many paranormal romances being published, it's hard to find plots and characters that are original and fresh. Julia Templeton’s Return to Me is fresh, due mainly to the secondary romance of the hero’s homosexual brother. Templeton has taken a chance here - and it works. Darius Mac ...

Blood Red

I guess you could say I was a vampire romance virgin because Blood Red was my first. I will also admit that I have enjoyed many of Heather Graham/Shannon Drake’s historicals and I basically liked the story told in this novel. However, I couldn’t give it a higher score simply because of questions ...

Real Vampires Live Large

Gloriana St. Clair is a girl after my own heart; strong, funny, and not afraid to let her sexuality shine through. Perhaps the fact that she is a 400 year old vampire makes all the difference. She is not a brooding character who wallows in self-pity because of what she has become. Instead she refres ...

Rises the Night

First of all, let’s call this series what it is: Regency Buffy. Now, if you’re as intrigued as I was when reading the review of last year’s The Rest Falls Away, the very good news is that what we have here isn’t a rip-off of that great television show, but instead something that takes the be ...

Undead and Uneasy

Betsy and Sinclair get married at the end of this book. I don’t think that counts as a spoiler as the last five books in this series have been building up to this point. And, if you’re like me, you probably wanted to know that before starting MaryJanice Davidson’s sixth book in her Betsy Taylo ...

One With The Night

Although I haven’t read one of her books before, I’ve always heard that author Susan Squires is an intelligent, unusual writer. The blandly titled One With the Night did not prove me wrong, but I was dismayed when misunderstandings marred a quite original and engrossing vampire story. ...

Night Life

I liked this one. Make that I really liked this one. Fresh, pleasingly erotic, and totally free of anything to do with Regency England or an alliance of extra large paranormal warriors – in short, unlike about 95% of the books out there right now – Elizabeth Guest's Night Life had me from its ve ...

Lover Revealed

When I pick up a Black Dagger Brotherhood book, I know that within minutes I will be completely immersed in a gripping tale that leaves me not caring a bit if I’m reading about a male-dominated world where tormented vampire warriors have ridiculous names, use extreme slang, and that their leather- ...
