SINNER’S HEART, the third installment in The Hellraisers series, has one of the most unique heroines I have ever read in a romance novel- a ghost. While this gave the book an original feel, it didn’t help the rather lackluster romance plot line. Readers who are familiar with The Hellraisers will most likely be satisfied with this book, because it offers a very clear and gratifying conclusion to the trilogy.

HOT BLOODED follows the newest – and only – female werewolf in the world on her quest for her mate, who was kidnapped by an evil goddess at the end of the first book in the Jessica McClain series, FULL BLOODED. This is a good sequel with enough development to advance the series plot line, and a self contained story that has a satisfying ending for the reader.
THE WITCH COLLECTOR PART I starts out strong and pulls you right in with the mystery. Why are Breeda’s parents running away from their home and why are they going to Chicago? Who or what took them from the apartment after they got there? And why the heck would they name their child Breeda?
PROPHECY GIRL is a breath of fresh air in the currently crowded paranormal young adult field. While it was by no means perfect, it was a light, fun read, and managed to keep me up way past my bedtime. Set in an interesting, original world, it has familiar vampires and werewolves, but new additions, like the magic wielding channelers and their partner watchers. There’s also tons of action, political intrigue, and two enjoyable lead characters, Amelie and Jackson, to hold a reader’s attention.
BITE ME, YOUR GRACE had everything I like in a romance novel. A headstrong young woman? Check. Strong and sensual love interest? Double check. A ridiculous plot line full of twists and turns preventing them from getting together? You know it! But while this book had all the standard components, it was still remained fresh and new.
FLIRTING UNDER A FULL MOON looked and sounded like a super cute paranormal romance. Unfortunately, I was more than a little let down after reading this book, since it was pretty much a boilerplate paranormal romance with frustrating main characters and a boring, forgettable plot.
When I started WOLF WITH BENEFITS, based on the title and the cover, I was excepting cheesy paranormal romance. And, to be fair, though WOLF WITH BENEFITS is a bit cheesy, it’s also clever, fun, and a really enjoyable read, with some great characters and laugh out loud moments.
If I am being completely honest here, when I started IMMORTALLY EMBRACED, I was really hoping for some more deliciously sexy Galen and Petra scenes. I was disappointed on that front, however, this book was a satisfying read regardless. This is a case when the second book is as good, if not better, than the first book.
DEATH, DOOM AND DETENTION was a good book that isn’t perfect, but still a light, fun read. The underlying premise is different from a lot of paranormal YA I’ve read recently- instead of brooding werewolves or sexy vampires, we’ve got hot angels and terrifying ghosts. And while sometimes the premise verges on ridiculous, we still have some great characters, plenty of teenage angst and obviously, some supernatural drama.
DANCE OF SHADOWS immediately sucked me in with the beautiful cover and mysterious blurb. I was hoping for a combination of Black Swan and Center Stage with paranormal elements. What I got was an interesting premise that could have been a great story, but unfortunately fell flat with poor pacing, bland characters and laughable dialogue.
