Beauty Dates the Beast (Midnight Liaisons #1)
Single human female to join charming, wealthy, single male were-cougar for a night of romantic fun—and maybe more.
Me: The tall, sensuous, open-minded leader of my clan.
You: A deliciously curvy virgin who’s intimately familiar with what goes bump in the night. Must not be afraid of a little tail. Prefer a woman who’s open to exploring her animal nature. Interest in...more

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
If you are wondering why I'm quoting Myles' author blur...more
But I might have managed to enjoy the book, if the heroine was not so excruciatingly idiotic....more
This was a quick, fun read. Sometimes silly, often sexy, it's just what you'd expect from Jessica Sims (aka Jill Myles, author of the Succubus Diaries).
The synopsis (which is hilarious) shows that this book is on the lighter side and suggests that it will be filled with sexual situations. So as long as you keep your expect...more
I'm sorry, but if I was so overly protective of my sister my whole life, I wouldn't just trust some stranger I knew for a few days with her life, no matter how hot he is!
Basically, two "human" girls are working at a supernatural dating service. Bathsheba is the heroine and...more
-Does contain sex and stuff but amazingly enough still manages to have a plot that doesn’t revolve around sexual references every 3 lines, somehow other authors just have a difficulty grasping this concept
-Bath and beau were relatively likable, bath is strong and independent heroine and puts her sisters needs first she also thinks of really good escape plans even if...more
The back cover copy of this novel is what immediately drew me in. It reads like a hilarious personal ad. Once I found out the main character worked for a paranormal dating service, I was sold. In the beginning, I hoped the dating service would play a bigger role in the story than it did. But as the story continued, I had no problem with the dating service taking a back seat because it was such a great story. The idea of the Alliance and how it tried to organize the paranormal creatu...more

Bathsheba is a human female working in a paranormal dating service. Her boss is a Siren and a *****. Her sister is a werewolf in hiding, who shifts at the slightest sign of something going wrong. Did I mention that Bath is a virgin, yep and that is just the start of this awesome adventure....more
This was a fun, light, fast read. The funny back cover copy and a recommendation from an author I trust were enough incentive for me to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did.
The story was interesting and fast-paced, and I have to admit that I stayed up well past my normal bedtime to finish the book in one sitting. It's been a while since a book captured me that well.
I did have a couple is...more
This was a fast, light and fun read. The recommendation from All Thing Urban Fantasy was enough incentive for me to give it a try.
The story was interesting and fast-paced, but I admit having a couple issues with it.
(view spoiler)[The five day romance seems rushed given the lead woman's history. She is a 25-year-old virgin who sleeps with what basically amounts to a complete stranger knowing that:
_- this will put her beloved sister in danger, and
- he is using her during his heat.
My second issue w...more
I did have some issues with it though:
1) Why couldn't Savannah leave the territory? - I must have missed this explanation because though they mentioned that Savannah couldn't leave the territory several times, I never caught why., and (view spoiler)[she wasn't kidnapped by the werewolves until later in the book. (hide spoiler)]
2) "After my enemy started dating a human, I started following her" (or something to that effect) excuse me? (view spoiler)[...more

Sometimes you just need something a little lighter, a bit sexy and really fun to perk up your week. Jessica Sims’ Beauty Dates the Beast did it for me.
Bathsheba works for a dating service for the paranormal elite. The patrons of Midnight Liasons not only are of the supernatural persuasion (shifters, vampires, harpies, fae, etc.), but they are wealthy enough to make some major demands. It appears there are more men than women in the supe comm...more

Beau will be affected by another female's heat and needs someone that weekend or he'll go sexually crazy. The only problem is she's a virgin and because she's trying to protect her sister, she's trying to stay away from invo...more
This book is what it is and I think in hindsight I am trying to turn it into something else. This book IS a PARANORMAL ROMANCE. Yes it is also a little bit urban fantasy but it is paranormal romance first and foremost. So as a PNR it is a 4 star book but as a UF book it is 3 stars.
The world the characters live in is your normal were, va...more
The first in the Midnight Liaisons series, Beauty Dates the Beast is about Bathsheba (honestly, the first time I’ve ever read a book with a character named that), who works for the supernatural dating service named Midnight Liaisons, and Beau Russell, the leader of the Alliance clan who wants Bath...more
The only reason I didn't rate this book higher is that towards the end of the book, some of the heroine's choices don't to make sense with the way her character is presented at the beginning of the book. Also, a few dark things happe...more
When I heard Jill Myles aka Jessica Sims was writing a new series I was beyond excited. I adore her Succubus Diaries series and knew any book written by her would be fantastic and Beauty Dates the Beast did not disappoint....more
