Fans wait with bated breath for their new novels. Now, Christine Feehan, Katherine Sutcliffe, Fiona Brand, and Eileen Wilks give them a taste of what they've asked for in four stories of the most daring kind of love...
Formerly 4 stars for Only Human
I only read Eileen Wilks' Onl ...more
The first few chapters of MItW started off well enough, the author captured the coastal town atmosphere perfectly, however, after that it got a little, okay at times a lot, cheesy and eye-roll-inducing. Romances don't have to be that sticky-sweet. What was different and interesting is that the narration was mainly told through the male lead instead of the female; there's not too much of that in romances. The only downfall to the story being told this way was ...more
It was sweet. Well, not the whole story, but the ending, it was really sweet and made me smile because well, I suspected but it was handled in such a way that I just had to smile. Don't know how to describe the feeling to you.
As for the actual story before the sweet ending, it was OK. The world building was interesting, my attention was fairly captivated and the characters were fun to get to know. I just think th ...more
I thought this was an intro for the series, but it is a simplified version of book 1.
Don't read this if you don't want to get spoiled.
Although I am at only 100 pages of #1 so far, it's incomparably better, obviously more elaborate and longer than novella version. I'm sorry there wasn't any warning posted, otherwise I wouldn't have read this first. Or at all, actually.
Don't get me wrong, this is a good story if you don't plan reading book 1 or rest of the series.
I will rate & review the other Novella in this book when I read the Drake Sisters series by Christine Feehan.
Most reviewer have reviewed that the World of Lupi series as a poor knock-off of the Vampire Hunter Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. This review is mainly to dispute such a claim.
Having only read the prequel so far I can only comment on the main Character and the story premi ...more
I was surprised that this was so short but after reading it, the story really didn't need to be more drawn out. I really liked the snippets you get about Hannah and Jonas and I cant wait to read their story.
Hot August Moon by Katherine Sutcliffe
I knew this was a prequal so I went and read the synopsis of Bad Moon Rising and had no interest in it. I debated even reading this story but figured since it was only 5 chapters it wouldn't be that b ...more
"Hot August Moon" Katherine Sutcliffe - ***1/2 Warning - this is only part of a bigger story - and it doesn't really end. Great story, although the romance side was underdeveloped and rushed. Read it ...more
I'm a huge fan of Mrs. Feehan. But I wasn't expecting to love "Magic in the wind" so much coz even thought her Drake Sisters' series are always a very pleasant ride, it's not my favorite from her. And usually, short stories (for my taste anyway) are a pale copy of what the story could be and everything (story, characters and feelings) always seem too rush and I can never really become attach to the characters. But Feehan avoided the trap and managed it in less than 100 ...more
"Hot August Moon" by Katherine Sutcliffe - I love suspense stories with serial killers and the FBI and this one was no exception. The French Quarter story was interesting and even made me want to read how it ends in the next book. I wa ...more
Katherine Sutcliffe's Hot August Moon is the story of a profiler who can see in to the mind of a serial killer, she's also torn with the man who is helping her, one of the detectives on the case. This one was interesting and made me want to read mo ...more
Hot August Moon by Katherine Sutcliffe - Alright, but I find a cliff hanger ending in a short story to be very annoying.
After Midnight by Fiona Brand - Again, I couldn't even finish this one.
Only Human by Eileen Wilks - The reason I even read this book. This is a different version of how Lily and Rule meet, and I'm onto the 11th or 12th book in the series. Let's just say, you can never go back.
1. Magic in the Wind by Feehan
-- This includes book #1 in the Drake Sisters (Sarah's story) and if you have the short stand alone entitled "Magic in the Wind" you already have this story.
2. Hot August Moon by Katherine Sutliffe
- I liked this story the most of all four. I thought this one could have been expanded and hoped it would turn into a book someday. To my knowledge, it has not.
- Since the info on the back of the book is horrible, this story is about Anna (FBI profiler w ...more
Katherine Sutcliffe - her story is a prequel of sorts to her book "Bad Moon Rising" which I also need to add to my wish list. sigh. It was also very good and entertaining.
Fiona Brand - her story was self-contained. An ending within itself. But her writing style is so intriguing I will be hunting ...more
Magic in the Wind - 5 Stars - In my next life I want to be a Drake sister. Their family has so much love and support. This story was great although a bit too short for me, but then again I could read about this family for days.
Hot August Moon - 4 Stars - Very interesting. I'm a bit disappointed in the ending, perhaps I'll read the next installment, not sure.
Despite this short story being listed as a prequel to the World of the Lupi series, it isn't really true. In fact, I would recommend not reading this story before reading the first book in the series, as it would just make things confusing. This is essentially a condensed version of Tempting Danger. However, there's a lot of differences in the mythology and in how Lily and Rule interact with each other that sets this clear outside of the series.
If you are weak at heart then you mighty want slip this one, Katherine Sutcliffe give you a story of a FBI profiler that is gifted on the borden line of being a curse. She is trying to stop a series killer who is targeting prostitutes. This is chilling story with a cliffhanger that leave you wanting more.
I can go on and ...more
Hot August Moon by Sutcliffe, Katherine - I liked the story line and the whole idea of a paranormal division of the FBI.
After Midnight by Fiona Brand - Not sure why this was mixed in with paranormal stories, but it was a nice little romance.
Only Human by Eileen Wilks - One of my favorite authors. It was fun seeing how the idea of the Lupus stories ...more
Katherine Sutcliffe, Fiona Brand and Eileen Wilks. All 4 were paranormal romances.
I didn't love Christine Feehan's story but that's I run with her, I like some of her stories others I don't like at all. The Dark Carpathian series didn't do anything for me, but her Leopard-people of the rainforest and Ghostwalker series I do like.
The other three were good introductions to new ...more
