PRIDE AND PROMETHEUS is not only a clever, thought-provoking mash-up between two beloved stories -Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice – it expertly captures the tone and themes of each book. There is such an excellent balance between Gothic Horror and Regency Romance.

DANGEROUS MATING is sort of like the “Goldilocks” of paranormal romances. It’s not too dark, serious, and complex but also not super light, fluffy, and silly. It’s just right in the middle which is great to have in a genre. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed- filled with moments that keep you constantly on the edge of your seat yet infused with enough levity that things never get too dark.
BABY, I’M HOWLING FOR YOU was a fun, action-packed paranormal romance which tick off all of the paranormal romance tropes in an entirely entertaining way. It had tons of twists and plot points that I thoroughly enjoyed and really didn’t see coming which I am always appreciative of.
BEARING HIS SINS by Eve Langlais
This one was my not too good rated story, where I lost interest towards the end and had to force myself to finish it just so I didn’t have to label it a DNF. My main issue was Cole.
MURDER ON THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS is another delightful installment in this series filled with clever twists and turns and unique, likable characters. It was especially fun to read this after seeing the recent Murder on the Orient Express movie and spot the similarities in some of the plot points and characters as the book is an homage to the Agatha Christie story.
The Wicked + Divine series is about twelve gods who, every 90 years are reincarnated as humans and only live for two years. Unfortunately for me, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL issue was not in fact a one off Christmas special comic that a new reader to this series (it has 36 issues to it already!) could jump right in and enjoy.
Tension is a major mood in WAXING MOON which is felt in so many tones from Julie having to deal with conflicting desires for how Julie should live her life to the very real threat of a rival supernatural group bent on killing her son, Carson. Much of the story is action-packed and pretty thrilling to read.
THE CURIOUS AFFAIR OF THE WITCH AT WAYSIDE CROSS captures the Victorian interest in the supernatural elements really well with the plot revolving around a mysterious society and talk of otherworldly characters.
LURE OF OBLIVION is a pretty fun, action-filled installment of the Mercury Pack series. The plot is really compelling and complex mostly involving a clash between shifters and small town humans. What struck me in this story was the utter brutality and pettiness of the bad guys.
PERFECT GRAVITY picks up pretty much right after the events of its prequel WANTED AND WIRED. Characters from that book play significant roles in this one but its not really a necessity to have read WANTED AND WIRED to understand what is going on here.
