Hot vampire Zane happens to be outside the bar where Jackie was busy getting smashed after being passed over for a longed for and much needed promotion at work.... When he helps her to her feet after she drunkenly sprawls on the ground at his the die is set, he drinks her blood setting her afire with lust and then he takes her to another bar where he points her towards Noah. Jackie and Noah spend the day having very steamy sex and when she wakes up that evening she returns to the alley where she met Zane fully intending to pick up her purse from him... Once again he drinks her blood and then as she passes out puts her in a trash Dumpster and closes the lid...
This prequel was both illuminating and at the same time in my mind raised more questions... Fun and easy fast short little read that sets story up perfectly as it continues on in book 1 of The Succubus Diaries series by Jill Myles.... You will love it buy the books starting with this one !!!!...more

Zane has left Jackie and returned to serve his Vampire Queen Nitocris, and he is not thrilled to be home! This novella details a period in time where for her safety Zane has abandoned Jackie and she has no recourse but to return to her other Master Noah... This story is short but very compelling and has put me firmly in the corner of Zane once again! I love this series and cannot wait for my copy of the third book to get to my mailbox to read!...more

Just finished and this is the coolest short story ever, it has the neatest paranormal twists for the two main characters Kai and Amber that has ever come to my attention in a long time... The story if full of action, hot sweaty sex and some of the most honest give and take between the male and female lead in a book in a very long while... I cannot wait to dive into the full length books that starts off with "Sins of The Heart"! ...more

While some have said this book is really not worth reading as it is too long, too repetitious and too boring I feel like it was an interesting look inWhile some have said this book is really not worth reading as it is too long, too repetitious and too boring I feel like it was an interesting look into the lives of people with more money than good sense... Never read the first book that started the journey of John and Susan Sutter but reading this sequel which was released many years after " The Gold Coast" came out was enough for me... Why anyone would be involved in some of the escapades of the stories main characters was explained in great detail by the author and boils down to a very simple problem, boredom! When you live a privileged life there are a great many temptations that come your way that the average person never has to worry about.. Being courted by someone of questionable reputation and seduced by their flattery into a working relationship as well as a personal one does not seem to have worked out to well the first time for Mr and Mrs Sutter, in " The Gate House" history is repeating itself!
Add in a little " steam " between the players, a few rounds of sniping with the former in-laws, some very intriguing secrets being exposed, and a life and death struggle and in the course of reading this book you go from being slightly amused to completely aghast at the lengths the wealthy will go to when their lifestyle is threatened... All in all a very long read but a pretty interesting perspective that probably is not far from reality!...more

Milagro De Los Santos is however not going to become one of my go to favorite reading about characters as not only do I find her somewhat too much, but also am not really too caught up in the 2ndry characters either... The book was a used buy and well worth reading as it was fast, easy and actually kind of intriguing in spots.. My problem came when "true love" was thrown over for "true lust" after which some nutty adventures took place, which while entertaining, did not really make me like Milagro and the rest of the gang any better.. There were a few places when some of what was going on made me smile and a few places where I threw up my hands in disbelief and complete disgust! Now to say all that I do want to read the last book to see what happens, cannot help it am too nosy not to want to know the ending of the story lines!
For anyone who likes light comedy, drama queens, insecure heroines and lots of descriptions of clothes, shoes, hair and things of that sort you will have a good time with Milagro and company.....Marta Acosta...more

This book Unchained with the story of Ashe Carver and Captain Reynard absolutely blew me away! Ashe is Holly's sister and the nightmare of every monster, she is also a single mother with all the problems inherent with the job! In this story while juggling the two facets of her life Ashe also once again connects with Captain Reynard when his soul urn is stolen and she elects to help him recover it so he does not die. Simply marvelous characters who come to life in vivid color as described by the author, I absolutely laughed out loud when the "Monster Bunny" was first talked about and then was "icked out" when Sharon finally described the thing! This is a story about a woman who has a lot on her plate trying to do right by her child after her husband dies and her in-laws start a custody battle. Talk about nightmares, try being a single mother/retired monster slayer who has to toe the line while the "monsters in the closet" keep coming out to try and either kill her or make her their significant other! The relationship between Ashe and her daughter Eden to say the least is strained due to past miscommunications, the burgeoning powers that Eden is developing also attracts the notice of a Vampire who wishes Ashe to become what amounts to his ticket to power and if she does not comply than he will gladly take Eden in her stead. Add to that stress is the fact that Ashe promises Captain Reynard she would help him to locate his soul urn and retrieve it from the thief who has stolen it from "The Castle", which turns out to be much more complicated than she first thought! More stress comes to play when Ashe promises her sister Holly that she would take care of a small "ghost busting job" that also turns out to be anything but easy! The plot lines weave in and out like snakes slithering in the shadows, when they are finally all connected the reader will nod their head and say "That makes sense".... For anyone looking for a mushy Paranormal Romance this is not it, rather be prepared for an action packed hell-ride that will keep you riveted to the pages until the very end... You do get your HEA, but along the way it is one heck of an adventure to get there!!!...more

This novella set in the T-Flac series features operative Sebastian Tremayne who is a chameleon able to absorb and channel other supernaturals powers for his own use... Michaela Giese is the beauty who caught his eye 2 years prior as she was engaged to his best friend, a fellow T-Flac agent..... The story is dynamic and full of intrigue, espionage and very steamy scenes that the author is known for throughout her books... I enjoyed this Paranormal Romance with an edge of brutal danger, fast paced action, classically evil villians and male and female lead characters whose fiery passion for each other add spice on every page!
Temptation In Shadows by Gena Showalter is "hotter"! The second novella in the anthology once again is a Paranormal Romance with supernaturally talented male and female lead characters.. Sean Walker is in no way your "average" male, his ability to harness the power of shadow is not only a very handy talent but also something that has over his life time forced him to choose solitude over friends and companions... Until meeting Gabby! Gabrielle Huit is a young woman with an even more unique ability, one forced upon her as a child, which has caused her to become hunted by people who wish to use this same talent for their gain... Her past has also taught her never to get close to anyone, trust can only get you hurt in the long run... That changes when she encounters Sean! This one is a deadly race to see which faction gets to Gabby first, Sean and his group of covert operatives or the bad guys who want her for their own nefarious purposes... Truth be told this was not the best story have read by the author but enjoyed the unique characters she created nonetheless!
Hunting Temptation by Lorie O'Clare was "okay".. The fact that this novella shifted gears somewhat and featured a young female Werewolf, Jenna Drury as the main heroine was not bad.. The human male, bounty hunter Seth Gere was sexy as all get out and one that would make any woman proud to take him home... My problem was the repetitive use of sniffing in the story line... They would sniff out the scent of lust, or rage, or bewilderment or whatever emotion! Just like others have talked lately about the overuse of someone in a book having a love of all things pink, when an author keeps on and on with one phrase it turns me off what is actually a good story... While I did read the entire story and enjoyed the plot, the sexual content, the characters in the story that overuse of certain words just about drove me over the edge by the end of the book!
All in all The Bodyguard was fast entertainment but is not something that I will reread!...more
