The plot in RED HOT DRAGON felt rushed with more focus on the sex scenes than the romantic development or the plot. I felt left out of the exciting and very fun sounding kidnapping story happening somewhere else especially when its resolution appeared to be an afterthought to the next sex scene. Perhaps there are some
Genre: Paranormal Romance
It’s a tricky business placing an immortal character in the modern world, and incarnations of Greek deities have been especially problematic in the past. That makes it all the more satisfying to read a book that gives gravitas and reasonable boundaries to the issue. I loved how Emma’s curse shapes her profession, proscribes her love life, and constrains where and when she can unleash her Siren’s magic.
Taking place in a world that is so at odds with my normal paranormal romance reading, BOUND BY NIGHT was an exciting start to a new series that I can’t wait to continue. In BOUND BY NIGHT, though vampires have the expected blood drinking and super strength traits, they are also servants (basically slaves) to the humans, who try to domesticize them. Full of Native American-esque mythology, and a unique spin on the vampire’s place in the world, the first book in the MoonBound Clan Vampire series is definitely a keeper.
DANGEROUS was one of those books that I was certain I would like. I was looking forward to reading it, and I went in with a super positive mindset and the willingness to give it more than a fair shot. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into DANGEROUS. I do so love a good paranormal romance, but Devon and Liam’s relationship got so physical so fast that I felt it lacked the emotional connection I really like reading about.
MUST LOVE FANGS continues the flirty, sexy, sweetness I’ve come to love in the the Midnight Liaisons series. The concept of a shifter/vampire/fae dating agency is a cool concept and I always look forward to any fun dating antics that come about in this series. The plot of MUST LOVE FANGS moves at a great pace
Coming off the high of SHADOW HUNTER, TWILIGHT HUNTER, the first full novel in the Execution Underground series, had a lot to live up to. Unfortunately, Jace and Frankie just didn’t do it for me in the way that Damon and Tiffany did, though I did enjoy the book. If you were looking for any kind of resolution of the cliffhanger that SHADOW HUNTER left us with, don’t pick up TWILIGHT HUNTER expecting any answers. What you will find, however, is a hot romance, some major action, and a mystery, to boot.
DAYSIDER doesn’t bring to mind your typical paranormal vampire romance. The vampires don’t fit the sexy vampire mold and it takes place in a society following a war between vampires and humans, with a shaky truce between the two and separate societies. In other words, it was not entirely what I was expecting after having read the blurb, which doesn’t make it bad, but I thought it was worth a fair warning.
With most paranormal romances there are certain things I expect: a relatively good story, compelling characters who I can relate to in some way, and of course a steamy romance. Unfortunately DEAD SEXY DRAGON did not deliver on any of these. I enjoyed the underlying premise of this book with different species
Aside from another gorgeous cover in the House of Comarre series, LAST BLOOD is a complex, beautiful, and at times heart wrenching story. LAST BLOOD had me feeling a wide range of emotions from frustration to hopefulness and excited to see every character gain some sort of closure to their storylines.
One of the more unique things about the Mystwalker series is Leigh Evans writing style which is part stream of consciousness, part lyrical. On the plus side, it gives readers almost unparalleled access to Heidi’s mind and thoughts. On the down side, Heidi’s mind is often a pretty chaotic place. In the opening chapters, Heidi’s voice tends to ramble a bit and it contributed to a slow start similar to the debut. Once the action started, however, the pace jumped into hyperdrive for the remainder of THE THING ABOUT WERES.
