I love paranormal romance books that don’t take themselves too seriously. I always find that it’s easier to get through a book when I am laughing, and BABY’S GOT BITE had plenty of humour and ridiculous situations in it while still managing to have believable characters and truly emotional scenes.

SILVER IN THE BLOOD was a book I was very much looking forward to reading. The beautiful cover and author alone (I loved DRAGON SLIPPERS) was enough to intrigue me, and I didn’t even bother reading the description. So going in a bit blind, I was very happy when SILVER IN THE BLOOD lived up to my expectations.
I tend to like my books quite spicy – and I used to think the more sex the better. Well, I’ve been proven wrong, and in a werewolf novel to boot. Although the sex scenes in BRIDGED BY LOVE were well written, I really could have done with way less of them. By the end of the book, I was skipping pages of erections and orgasms – more story, please!
PURE BLOODED follows the formula that Carlson has nailed for the Jessica McClain series. With high action, evil villains around every corner, and Jessica saving the day, PURE BLOODED doesn’t do much differently than previous books in the series.
HUNTER OF HER HEART seemed like it would be a nice and quick sort of paranormal romance but I ended up just not liking any of the characters or even the plot. The writing was well done and not overly complex or down-laden with flowery descriptions truly making this book a quick read.
I decided to review SONG OF MIDNIGHT EMBERS due to the mention of dryads and elementals in the series. I don’t think I’ve read urban fantasy or paranormal romance involving dryads as central characters. I was fascinated by the mythology and magic of the dryads in this book.
I am a fan of Melissa F. Olson’s Scarlett Bernard series, so when I saw she had a new series coming out I instantly preordered it. If I already know that I like the author and the book is in the same genre I generally don’t read the summary because they often have spoilers in them. So it was a very pleasant surprise when I started listening to Boundary Crossed and discovered it is set in the same world as the Scarlett Bernard series.
POSSESSED BY A WOLF is a pretty fun action packed story with an at times confusing world building which was partially due to my habitual tendency to jump blindly into the middle of a series. That aside I enjoyed the tension and political machinations the characters have to work through while bullets fly, people are put in deadly peril, and things go boom.
Dark Instincts starts with an awesome attention-grabbing action scene that had my jaw dropping as I realized what was happening. Roni and Marcus are two fun, sexy and aggressive characters that I had fun getting to know.
Set in summertime Paris, MOONLIGHT AND DIAMONDS features an American werewolf alpha, looking for the right werewolf gal to start his own pack, and a cold Parisian beauty who has been running away from her wild side for years. For such a short book, the evolution of the characters and their relationship was believable and mostly well-paced. The mystery was fun and the varied paranormal world-building was interesting.
