DATING THE UNDEAD introduces a world where vampires are “out” and don’t need blood to survive. It’s also a world where vampires need a website to find dates though, which is a bit strange.

I don’t know why Paige Tyler’s two series are so different, but where I adore the SWAT (Secret Werewolf Alpha Team) series, the X-Ops series just isn’t my cup of tea. It’s not as fun as the first, and the characters aren’t as likeable or deep.
BETWEEN A WOLF AND A HARD PLACE is a sweet romance story with some added ghost mysteries to spice things up a bit. I love a good ghost story so I was pretty engaged in figuring out just why Brett’s aunt is haunting a piano installed in Ellie’s hotel.
I love a book with really interesting world building and WANTED AND WIRED has a really fun semi-dystopian future world with augmented humans existing alongside non augmented humans and even clones.
A Wolf Unleashed keeps the action high and the romance steamy for the duration of the book. With dog-fighting rings, a hot new drug that’s killing people at an alarming rate and a spat of college girls going missing, there’s a lot for the Dallas SWAT team to be involved with, even if their supervisors would rather they just break doors down on command. Too bad these shifters can smell trouble coming a mile away.
A PROMISE OF FIRE is Paranormal Romance with the sweet, freshness of YA, a traditional adventure with the snappy wit of Urban Fantasy. Hitting the sweet spot between so many already wonderful genres, this is a funny, sexy, un-put-downable book.
I was drawn to ALPHA WOLF NEED NOT APPLY, not just because its a Terry Spear story but I thought we might get a romance with a beta wolf which I haven’t been able to find much of. What we got was close enough and awesome.
I DREAM OF DRAGONS is a lighthearted and at times very silly paranormal romance. I was confused as to what the title has to do with the story. There are dragons but nothing about dreams or genies. I thought it was a play on “I Dream of Genie” but alas, no genies. The characters were amusing and I loved Rory and his sisters. The way Rory and Amber meet was hilarious as they each tried to come up with ways to ‘share’ the apartment.
HER FIERCE WARRIOR packs a mighty punch as a suspenseful paranormal romance. The previous three books in this series are pretty brutal in their violence and intensity and while that aspect is toned down a bit in this story it’s still there especially in the first scene when we meet Minka and Angelo.
I adored the first two books in the SWAT series, but IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES might be my favourite yet. Jayna is an amazing character, and the action and danger barely ever let up.
