In choosing a book to spend my time on I usually research a little about the book and the author. Very rarely does the cover or the blurb on the back influence my decision. Paranormal stories are not my favorites and I do tend to shy away from them. I also look for something that is not the same old, same old. I am precise and have a certain criteria.

Never having read a Luxie Ryder novel I knew this was going to be an interesting exp

I really enjoyed this novel. It's lovely.

The main characters, Bane and Amber's love story bridges more than the paranormal/fantasy realm it is built in. The characters were genuine and felt very human. Bane is a tortured soul.

This was definitely a good read for someone like me. I'm not all into that whole vampire-y phase that everyone is going through, but I actually did like this book. It was well-written, descriptive, and full of heart-thumping adventure.

I would love to find more leading men like him. Amber’s character is a firecracker. I was impressed with her grasp of tough ideas and her tenacious nature. There were several secondary charac

I would love to find more leading men like him. Amber’s character is a firecracker. I was impressed with her grasp of tough ideas and her tenacious nature. There were several secondary characters, and they all kept this story flowing at the perfect pace. The sexual scenes were different, and I am afraid to say too much ...more

Due to recent changes by Goodreads, I feel it is a good idea to let visitors to my page know that any ratings marked as 'rated by author' are ratings from external websites that I have uploaded myself (as you will see from the text of the reviews). Thanks!
