The love story between Dragos and Pia Cuelebre extends far past the initial meet-cute and sexual chemistry. Through marriage, child birth, and public scrutiny, these two newly weds are as fun to read about now as when they were coming to terms with their mutual attraction.

An interesting character vignette, in PIA SAVES THE DAY our favorite couple face each other again, back at square one. The first time these two fell in love, Pia was the hunted. This time, she must use all her cunning to get close to a cranky, injured, amnesiac dragon… or lose the man of her dreams.
Badass heroines, bare-chested men, and fake tattoos crop up with the usual frequency and relative effectiveness this week. I also realized that the In Death series is on book 39(!), thus making my plan to re-read from the beginning seem both futile and unlikely.

Sometimes I have hard time separating how I envision a character from how well produced a cover is, and the Mercy Thompson series is a great example of this. I think they’re gorgeous covers, colorful and eye-catching, but Mercy hasn’t really looked like herself since MOONCALLED. Are there any covers you love despite the mismatch with the series?

I don’t do well with tricksy titles (as evidenced by the fact that Kate had to explain to me that NOS4A2 was a “Nosferatu” vanity plate, not a chemical compound), so our lead off cover, ENTRANCED, wasn’t my cup of tea. How do you guys feel about playful titles that make your head tilt? If you’re a blogger interested in joining in on the commenting fun, fill out our Guest Commentator form here!

The Game of Shadows series once again proves Thea Harrison’s range as a writer. An altogether different beast than the popular Elder Races series, FALLING LIGHT is Paranormal Romance with a science fiction and action movie flair. Alien creatures in human form, endless battle with an evil foe, love that spans generations and incarnations, all of these elements make the scope of this series vast and intricate and interesting.
Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series takes familiar romance and paranormal tropes to a level unparalleled in the genre, and DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY is a great example of her prowess. This story shows us a glimpse behind the Happily-Ever-After curtain, after Pia marries the powerful, sexy billionaire, after her child is born, after her ordinary life is exposed to the limelight.
I was apprehensive going into KINKED as I found Aryal plain mean, surly, and abrasive in the previous books of the Elder Races. At first I continued to be seriously annoyed with her as she was super stubborn and generally horrible to people but after spending time in her POV I grew to understand her better and even began to like her
There was a little bit of something for everyone in the covers this week. Our guest, Tez of Tez Says, loved RED HILL for it’s “people-less” qualities, I couldn’t stop laughing at the complimentary whiskers of Shelly Laurenston’s BITE ME cover, and Kate fell in love with the haunting simplicity of Jenny Trout’s SUCH SWEET SORRY. Oh, and none of us seem to like nipples poking through a dude’s t-shirt, so that’s something.

Today’s guest commentator, Sharon of I Smell Sheep, was treated to a wealth of Photoshop mis-matches, eye-popping colors, and stock images gone awry. Amidst all of these negatives, however, there were a few gems. Marie Brennan’s THE TROPIC OF SERPENTS promises more gorgeous illustrations to match it’s predecessor, and the border on Ruth Warburton’s WITCH FINDER is worth a few minutes of careful attention all on it’s own. Let us know which covers caught your eye (and which just plain burned them). If you’re a blogger interested in joining in on the commenting fun, fill out our Guest Commentator form… Read more »
