Ever wonder about what happens to the children born when one of the Fae decides to “have a little fun” with humans? Ever wondered what might happen to all of that inherited Faery magic if left untrained, boiling just under the surface, inside far too fragile human flesh?

Power so often corrupts and Conn’s latest heroine can feel the darkness inside her seeking release. Chazma Donnelly plays a dangerous game. The Fae power inside her is a growing darkness that she has no idea how to dispel. The w

Dark Love
What’s not to Love about Dark Love!!! Absolutely nothing!! This gem is pack full romance, tension, and suspense that will keep you biting your nails and on the edge of your seat. Chazma and Jethro have so much chemistry that it practically made my poor little e-reader sizzle!! Ugh, I can’t describe how much I enjoyed this book. I couldn’t put it down and I had classes, but I still managed to finish it in two days!! Such a phenomenal read that it is simply a must buy. The romance is nice
Darklove by Claudy Conn
Chazma Donnelly is out for vengeance. Some monster, literally, has killed her parents and she will not let it live. So off to Brionn, Ireland to hunt for Dark X, as she has named this beast. The tales of mystery from the magical Ireland are no stranger to Chaz as she’s not quite human herself. She expected her new employer, the lord of the Brionn, to be older. If only! As she focuses on her revenge she constantly fights her hormones for the not so old and definitely hot, L

Ireland back drop, castles, romance and hot sex hmm what more can I say? haha I loved this book right from the beginning. I was pulled in with Claudy's vivid details. Claudy describes the magic so well you can imagine it in your mind with no problem.

I am a sucker for paranormal regency romance books. They are pretty much my favorite. I swear I was born in the time :)

There was something very enchanting and magical to this book. The love story was so sweet but there was also darkness to it as well

Chazma Donnelly will do anything to catch the person who killed her parents. Even if that means putting herself right in the middle if it all.

She takes a takes a job cataloging a private library in Ireland while searching for the person who murdered her parents. But when she arrives and finds Jethro McBain is not the old man she thought he was, but a Dark sexy man who pulls at the darkness that is in inside her.

Chaz soon finds herself in serious trouble, Her need for revenge for her parents deat
Chazma Donnelly is heartbroken about her parents murders so her grandmother gets her a job as a librarian for Lord Jethro McBain at an Irish Manor in Ireland. Chazma's main reason for taking the job is to find her parents murderer whom she's sure is in Ireland. Even though she has an ulterior motive for taking the job, she does enjoy it. She finds she has a strong attraction to Jethro and knows he's not quite human and neither is she since she has Fae powers herself. She fights the attraction be ...more

Nothing but Love for Dark Love by the fabulous Claudy Conn. This books slides right in to advance her current Far series. Filled with Fae, Witches, Warlocks and Daemons this books leaves the reader wanting more!

The story has a lush background and the characters are filled with charm and grace. This story is a fast paced and action packed adventure for Chazma and Jethro. Conn keeps the readers on the edge of their seat with just the right amount of suspense (spooky and romantic). This book has a

Dark Love was exciting and some what mysterious, with memorable characters especially Chazma a powerful white witch. Chaz is determined to find her parents murderer despite her employer trying to keep her safe, and out of the way of the elusive killer. Besides the suspence there is also romance in store for Chaz during her summer in Ireland at the home of Jethro McBain, a gorgeous man that she can't quiet figure out, but she can't stop the attraction she has to him. This book holds your attentio ...more
This book had me from the very beginning and I found it impossible to put down. Claudy has a way of pulling you into every story that she writes, and this one was no different. I loved the chemistry between Chaz and Jethro and the way they interacted with one another was very entertaining and hot!!! I definitely recommend this book and would've given it more stars if it was an option. :)
I just finished this great book. Claudy Conn’s storytelling is amazing. I always feel apart of her story and this book wasn’t any different. The characters come to life with her writing and the adventure you find captures your interest and grows with the book. Another excellent reading choice.
Hilda Moulton
DarkLove is an spellbinding read, it will keep you guessing until the very end. While full of suspense it is also a romance that will touch your heart, as only Claudy Conn can!
Omg I loved this from beginning to end the light the dark of this and mystery and romance. Really a favorite of mine now to read again and again

Andrea received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for her honest review. Her review was first posted at Romancing the Book.

I am a huge fan of paranormal romance. Right now it is the genre I read the most and I am a sucker for a steamy, get-your-heart-racing, feel the blush on my cheeks romance.

Our heroine is Chazma, who under the guise of a new job, travels to Ireland to track down the killer of her parents. She immediately meets the man of the house, and her new boss, Lord Jethro M

This book was amazing! It has everything that readers look for in books. Romance, adventure, action, mystery as well as a bit of drama. Claudy knows how to keep her readers interested in the book without missing a beat. I couldn’t put the book down.

Chazma Donnelly lost her parents in a horrible killing and was left with a sense of retaliation against the person that killed her parents, who she refers to as Dark X. Her remaining living relative wants her to go to Ireland for the summer with a jo

Finally I was able to read this book… And Oh boy am I glad I finally got to it..!!!
Chaz aka Chazma Donnelly has powers which to her are not normal. She has very vivid dark dreams . Her parents were supposedly killed by a serial killer in New York and it has consumed her to seek revenge for their deaths. Chaz gets offered a job to organize a library at a man
For me the main problem with this book was that I felt like it was simply copied from Karen Moning's Fever Series.
A blond girl from Souther USA goes to Dublin to investigate her parents murder, she meets a handsome, rich, dark man who just happens to be a druid and even a Garda is invovled.
Almost immediately when I read the name Jethro I was about ready to quit this book. Seriously? Jerricho Barrons turned to Jethro MacBain. And while on the subject of names; Chazma was a name a little too stra

Well this book by Claudy Conn, as usual, doesn't disappoint. This was an amazing paranormal romance with witches, Fae, and a hunky Druid Priest. Intrigue, mystery, and murder were the main part of the plot; furthermore, the dabble of romance between Jet and Chaz was just an added bonus.
im gonna begin with, this book was just ok.
Now, this book is a rip off from my favorite series of all time the Fever Series by Karen Moning. The main girl (Chaz) is from north carolina, travels to dublin because her parents were murdered and she wants to find the killer. meets the main guy Jethro who is hiring her to work in his huge library. she meets several other hot irish guys, one in the garda and one who is helping the bad guy. oh and Jethro is a druid. the similarities don't end there, b
This is a wonderful dark tale with witches and warlocks . It also has a nice love story where two people need to learn to trust each other to make things work.
Elizabeth Cribb
Loved this book! I did get a surprise at the ending b/c it was not what I was expecting. Loved Ireland and the descriptions of this beautiful country.
I really couldn't get into this book. The characters had a lot of inner dialog but they were still...flat. Then everything was anti-climatic. Maybe 2 stars is too much.

anyone who enjoys paranormal romance will love this book. another fantastic book by Claudy Conn
2.5 stars

The plot moved too slowly....
Diana (DomesticGoddess)
Whoever writes the Bookbub descriptions for Claudy Conn novels does a great job. They always hook me on the daily emails, then I realize I haven't even read the ones I already own. I have a habit of downloading a lot of free and $.99 books - too many to read. So, now, to correct that first shortcoming (the other is probably a hopeless addiction, but at least it's cheap).

Here's what I thought of my latest Conn download: A lot of words for so little story - kind of repetitive. Some of the language
Stephanie Lambeth
Another great read. First book introducing Claudy's Fae series. Chazma's whom's Grandfather is a Royal Fae wants revenge for her parents murderer by an evil man bent on obtaining the elixir of immorality. You'll never guess who he turns out to be. Oh my.... She falls in love with a powerful Druid Priest and the adventures begin.
1.7 Stars. I needed a little more context in the beginning of the story to really get into it or even by the first third of the book. It's nice you like to be mysterious and I know something bad is coming but a hint about what we should be afraid of and why the main characters have to hide what they are would be nice. And yes thank you I know you're horny thanks for sharing...over and over again. I skimmed to the end but everything seemed to have been explained... Reasons being power, Fae, and f ...more

I love Claudy Conn's stories. She can weave a fantastic tale that takes you and your breath away. Here we have Chazma & Jethro (our F/M leads) and their fights, against their attraction for each other and against the dark wizard. Ms. Conn once again crafts a fantastic tale around the Fae and Druids. Loved it.
I was expecting some girl hell bent on revenge who is selfish and no redeemable. What I get is an impulsive heroine with a man whore hero. Suffice to say that this story is different and intriguing.

Chazma is a witch with a Fae Grandfather. Her mother and step father were recently slashed to death in NY. Her grandmother is worried that Chazma will go after their murderer. She encourages Chaz to apply for a job in Ireland to catalog a private library. Chaz is hired by Jethro McBain. Upon arriving she can sense the magic, the ancient protective wards in and around his home, yet she senses no magic in Jethro. Yet something in her dark side is drawn to him like a moth to a flame.
