Review – The Hot Scot by Kate Eden

Review – The Hot Scot by Kate Eden

How can you not like a book in which four vampires squabbling over who rides shotgun hop into a Ford Focus to rescue the heroine?  If you like that tone, than you’ll like Kate Eden’s The Hot Scot, the first book in her Murdoch Vampires series.  The Hot Scot was… Read more »

Mini-Review Monday – The Lunar Chronicles

Mini-Review Monday – The Lunar Chronicles

This series surprised me.  I didn’t think I’d be interested in it.  The idea of a cyborg Cinderella intrigued me but not enough to go out and buy the first book in the series, Cinder.  Then the reviews started coming in and bloggers I follow and enjoy began to sing… Read more »

ARC Review – Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson

ARC Review – Hot Blooded by Amanda Carlson

Hot Blooded is the second book in Amanda Carlson’s Jessica McClain series – a series that follows the only female werewolf in the known (supernatural) world.  The first novella and full-length book took me my storm.  I loved the action, the romance, and our heroine, the reluctant werewolf, Jessica, as… Read more »

Review – Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

Review – Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

There are certain keywords and story settings that are like crack to me.  If I see them in a blurb or in a synopsis, I can’t help it.  I hit the “buy” button immediately.  Those words include “gothic” and “romance;” those settings include small towns.  And if they happen to… Read more »

Mini-Review – Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey

Mini-Review – Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey

Dark Currents is such a fun and original book.  Its heroine, Daisy Johanssen, is half human and half incubus, and an agent of the Norse goddess, Hel.  She’s basically the supernatural police in the small town of Pemkowet, a hotbed of otherworldly activity.  A murder of a mundane, or human,… Read more »

MINI-REVIEW – Conjure by Jennifer Snyder

MINI-REVIEW – Conjure by Jennifer Snyder

  Full disclosure:  what drew me to CONJURE by Jennifer Snyder was its cover.  Very rarely do you see people of color on the covers of paranormal books and I was immediately interested in reading this particularly for that reason.  As a person of color myself, I crave stories that… Read more »

MINI-REVIEW – Catalyst by Jennifer Snyder

MINI-REVIEW – Catalyst by Jennifer Snyder

  I think I may like the premise of this book more than the book itself.  I’m a sucker for small southern towns, magic, and mystery and that’s exactly what this book offers.  Addison mysteriously inherits a house from her biological grandmother in a small seaside town in Georgia.  She… Read more »

ARC REVIEW – Elysian Fields by Suzanne Johnson

ARC REVIEW – Elysian Fields by Suzanne Johnson

  This was a book I really wanted to read.  I enjoyed ROYAL STREET, the first book in the Sentinels series, and I raved about RIVER ROAD, its follow-up.  Over the course of two books I came to love the awkward DJ, with her act first and think later attitude, her… Read more »

ARC REVIEW – Wicked as She Wants by Delilah S. Dawson

ARC REVIEW – Wicked as She Wants by Delilah S. Dawson

I love this series.  I do.  I find the world to be wholly original; Dawson’s voice to be poetic, romantic, and smart; and the characters to be dynamic and absorbing.  This follow-up to Dawson’s debut, WICKED AS THEY COME, is no exception.  Taking her characters outside the world of Criminy… Read more »

ARC Review – THE COLLECTOR by Victoria Scott

ARC Review – THE COLLECTOR by Victoria Scott

  I was really looking forward to the release of Victoria Scott’s THE COLLECTOR for two reasons.  First, I rarely read male POVs so I was interested in reading a paranormal where the male voice would take center stage; second, by all the buzz around the book, I knew that… Read more »
