Mai is a Fae and she’s just been accused on murdering a human. With the help of her Gremlin boyfriend, can they figure out who the real killer is before the bodies begin to pile?
The story starts with Mai being hit on and then jumps to her talking to detectives, trying to convince them she’s innocent. That is a huge leap that is a bit jolting. Mai comes off with a major attitude in the beginning. I know she’s pissed she’s been accused of murder but I’m not a fan of the chip on her shoulder. That said, I really liked Ry, her boyfriend. He is sweet and sexy. The mystery is a great ride but the world building is spectacular. I can’t wait to read more in this series!
The book starts with Elizabeth finishing up with a gyno visit. That’s where she meets a sexy new nurse and he drinks her blood! It’s definitely an unexpected meeting. I found it different and entertaining. Alex is overwhelmed with thirst for Elizabeth. He has to find her and convince her that he means her and her daughter no harm. But harm does come to them in the form of Alex’s past…
Yeah, that beginning is awkward. I wish she’d have just been giving blood or I don’t know something else. Did Elizabeth really see Alex drinking her blood? Alex is surprised by his attraction to Elizabeth. They do have some great chemistry. When his past catches up things finally get some action. The point of view jumps are really rough though. There’s no warning, just a jump in first person point of view. I had a hard time following that, it did diminish some of the joy of reading the story. There are a few twists in the book and some good sex scenes that is sure to heat your blood. If you love vampire romances (huge Trueblood fan here), I’d suggest giving Drawing Bloodlines a read.

Matteo helps Dakota with her shifter and she shows him what he twenty first centry is like. He’s been in cat form for a long time but their mating causes Matteo shifter problems. He must keep away from Dakota to keep them both save. When Dakota is kidnapped by a rogue military force he must save her, at any cost.
I really love the characters in this book. Matteo has a harsh, complicated history and meeting the complex Dakota only adds to the beautiful chaos. Their romance plays out among the action of the military attack. It gives a nice break to the romance and keeps the story going forward. The sex is super hot and definitely going to get the blood flowing. There are a few slow spots in the book that felt a bit bogged down but that’s really my only complaint. In terms of a shifter book, Matteo and Dakota really stand out. If you like shifters with a lot of heat then this book should be on your list to read!
Patience has a flash drive from work that may just get her killed. She’s saved by an unlikely person or should I say, vampire. Myth is only trying to help but he quickly becomes intrigued by the attractive stranger. Both have people hunting them, can they escape a terrible fate and find love in each other arms?
I have to say I’m so happy with Patience as a character. Yes, she grateful to be saved but she doesn’t trust this stranger who talks a bit old world which is such a huge relief. She’s running from dangerous people who are after terrible secrets (you’ll have to read the book to discover them). When Myth saves her, they start a battle that neither of them expects and a romance that neither of them can fight. She did accept the whole vampires are real thing too quickly. Some dialogue is odd as well, not Myth, but other characters. The romance is beautiful and sexy. I really enjoyed this paranormal suspense!
Despite the very contemporary looking cover this book is in fact paranormal fantasy. Princess Miranda is heir to the throne and warrior against the vampyres. Sathan, king of the vampyres, must travel with Miranda to end the violence between their peoples. Will a truce be found or will war break out?
Miranda is a princess but more of a warrior princess and I am all for that! Sathan is a sexy vampire who wants peace. Together they go on an action-packed journey in hope of stopping the Daemons and preventing war. The world building is what threw me. It’s very complicated and I had a hard time following it but the author also has a lot of very none fantasy dialogue/names that pulled me right out of the setting. There are also a lot of character introductions that tends to muddle who is who. Miranda and Sathan have great chemistry! I really like their romance, very sexy and the added vampyre fangs is definitely a turn on. This is an interesting start to a fantasy series. I’m interested in seeing where the story will go.
Marjani is nearly feral, dealing with a dark past. Can Fane, a fae, tame her wild beast?
I definitely felt a bit lost in some spots because I haven’t read the previous books. There’s just so much going on, shapeshifters and Fae. That said, I wish there was more of a unique storyline. I did really like Marjani. She’s a cougar and dealing with a dark past. Fane is fae, not just fairy but pureblood. They had great chemistry. The sex is hot but sometimes a bit over the top. Marjani is definitely a character I fell in love with! Her attitude really resonated with me. Fane, sexy fae, is enamored with her and it’s not hard to see why. There’s some great action in this book that really had me on the edge of my seat.
If you enjoy paranormal with shifters then Charming Marjani should be on your list to read!
Alpha’s and MC’s, you really can’t go wrong! Jonny doesn’t get distracted by women, until Alexa. She’s running from a dangerous ex but the man who wraps his arms around her might be just as much trouble.
I haven’t read the previous books in the series but I had no problem following along with the story. Alexa is a woman who needs help and my heart ached for her. Her ex is a bastard and won’t let her go. When she does find help, it’s from Jonny and the alpha is all sorts of sexy. I loved their chemistry together. It definitely heats up the pages! I do wish there was a bit more creativity and uniqueness with the world building. The ending is sweet and exciting and satisfying.
If you like sexy men saving the day, then Jonny is a highly recommended read!
Emery keeps meeting a man with wings and dying in weird ways. But he won’t stay dead, which for the junior reaper is a problem. The reaper’s boss, Administrator Dagmar, tells him the discrepancy must be resolved. What a premise! Throw in a few demons, the end of the world, a magical younger sister and the story becomes a three-sixty roller coaster ride.
This story as a comedy is hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s a unique and refreshing paranormal quickie. Carole’s writing reminds me of the great Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams … which in my book is amazing praise. Don’t expect the story to make any sense. It just flows from one ridiculous scene to the next.This is at best a YA romance. The sexual tension between Emery and the reaper, John / Sam, is obvious from the beginning but the dialogue remains at a flirty level. The scenes flip from Emery perspective to John / Sam's perspective. For me, it didn’t matter that there weren’t any sexual scenes, nothing explicit beyond a hand on a knee at the end of the story! The beginning's surreal with Emery waking up in a morgue and doesn’t disappoint all the way through to the last word.
The words will carry you on a silly and unbelievable ride. You have to read Don't Fear the Reaper!
Gail’s getting over a deadbeat abusing boyfriend, when a stranger enters the diner where she works as a waitress. It’s late, and Gail wants to go home. The plot’s simple—vampire fancies woman. She can’t resist and quickly succumbs to his charms. Sadly, the vampire, Drew, has enemies who are chasing him. He uses Gail’s apartment as a bolt-hole…with benefits.
Want a hot quickie? Yes. Include a few vampires to add a splash of spice? Yes. Then, this one’s for you. I enjoyed the fast pace and easy reading. The sex is smoking…Drew has centuries of experience and demonstrates how to make a woman orgasm with only his tongue. By the end of this quickie…he shows much more. I don’t want to spoil the plot, but you can guess what happens from the title—Novice. Drew’s enemies catch up with him, big battle…but all does not go well. I’m holding my breath for Dark Kingdom II. You may ask…why not a five? That's because of a couple of moving parts and grammar style. They don’t impact the flow, and Novice is still a recommended read.
We’re in a world of Santa, elves and pixes. There’s also shifters and mates. That’s exactly what happens when Magnus sees Melody. He knows she’s his mate but Melody is a half pixie. How can anyone possibly love her?
Melody has no self confidence being half pixie so she doesn’t understand Magnus’ interest in her. Magnus knows she’s his mate from the first moment they meet. The Santa world is a cute addition. I like how Santa has an app and that there’s a real problem with marketing. Comedy comes off subtle and entertaining in this story. The romance really shines through. I absolutely love that even though they’re mates and that they’re attracted that the romance is a slow sizzle. It doesn’t feel rushed or slow but it’s the perfect pace to get you hot and bothered. The sex is seriously hot! They have such great chemistry.
Bear’s Beauty is a sexy tale you can read all year long!
