Nevermore is a town protected by the Dragon and in this case the Guardian is Gray Calhoun. He suffered a staggering emotional trauma 10 yrs ago when his wife sacrificed him to the Demon Lord Krahl. Needless to say he isn't happy when his ex-SIL, Lucy Rackmore turns up asking for help.
I really enjoyed this one, even more than Michele's other series, the Broken Heart Vampires. I'll be reading the next one soon....more
This was a really funny, sweet book. I liked it a lot.
Who would think you could get turned into a vampire while taking out the garbage. Well it happenThis was a really funny, sweet book. I liked it a lot.
Who would think you could get turned into a vampire while taking out the garbage. Well it happened to Jessica Matthews, and 10 other people that same night.
Jessica wakes up to her fangs in the femoral artery of Patrick O'Halloran, master vampire and her soul mate. The problem is Jessica doesn't believe in soul mates, she's a widow with 2 small kids, who was in the middle of a divorce when her husband died.
So the premise of this series is that the bad vamps, Wraiths, want to take over the human world cause we are just so beneath them. The Consortium is made up of good vamps, humans and lycantropes etc who want to make nice. Patrick and his twin brother Lorcan created the Consortium 500 years ago. Lorcan is the one who killed all the people in Broken Heart on that one night. He was sorta out of control cause he was trying to recover from The Taint . A vampire disease.
I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series....more
Second of the Broken Heart Vampire series. And it was a fun, fluffy read that I enjoyed.
Eva LeRoy, Broken Heart's Librarian, one of the single parentsSecond of the Broken Heart Vampire series. And it was a fun, fluffy read that I enjoyed.
Eva LeRoy, Broken Heart's Librarian, one of the single parents turned vampire by Lorcan O'Halloran in the first book, is our h. Lorcan a four thousand year old vampire, who is now cured of the taint, which caused him to infect 11 people, is our H.
Lorcan is still feeling mighty guilty over killing these people and Eva in particular. Eva meanwhile is discovering a unique talent in herself. She can talk to and influence animals, and people who can turn into animals ie the lycanthropes and others.
As the wraithes and tainted vamps from book #1 haven't gone away, this is a valuable skill, and several bad guys decide that they must have Eva. Lorcan is determined to save her.
I enjoy this series, but can't read them back to back. So I'll be reading the next one when I need a lift....more
This is a fun, light, fast read style series. Good as a pick-me-up if you're in a reading rut.
So, what happens when 11 single moms/dads get turned intThis is a fun, light, fast read style series. Good as a pick-me-up if you're in a reading rut.
So, what happens when 11 single moms/dads get turned into vamps overnight? The Consortium moves in and takes care of you. Of course all the humans have to move out of town, except for your family.
So what do you do if you own & run the local hairdressers, with no customers? You start catering to all the werewolves that have moved to town.
Patricia, one of the eleven, has a rebellious teenage son doing pot, an ex-husband who was alcholic, and can see and talk to ghosts. She is also the target of demons who are trying to stop the prophecy. What prophecy Patsy asks? The one that will turn one of the eleven into the Queen of both the vamps and the lycans.
This is chicklit with a paranormal twist, and I think done much better than MaryJanice Davidson. ...more
This series just keeps getting better and better. Whilst it is a light fluffy read it is also full of fun and likable characters.

This one came with added Dragons which was an unexpected bonus.
Libby Monroe, and her team of PRIS (Paranormal Research & Investigation Service) which includes her parents have decided to stake out the town of Broken Heart and she was assigned the cemetery. Within about 5 minutes she is attacked by a crazed vampire, saved by a zombie, gets hot & bothered by another vampire and almost squished by a couple of dragons. And whilst she has spent her entire life studying potential paranormals she hasn't ever met any before or met anyone else who has either.
Ralph, widower, father, is our hot vampire and has 3yr old twin sons and thinks they should be his priority but can't understand why he is drawn to the human girlie Libby.
Meanwhile the female dragon has been fatally injured in the fight with her brother and wants to pass on her talents & soul to anyone but him. Libby is closest and whilst helping her she receives the ultimate gift of fire.
Lots of battles ensue with dragons & the ancient Lia (one of the seven first vampires) and plenty of interaction between our favourite H and h of previous books. Broken Heart is turning into a real enclave of the paranormal.
Looking forward to the next book, where hopefully, we'll find out where Synd's (brother dragon) soul went and why he was trying to steal Sybina's soul. And also what happened to the evil In-Laws who wanted to take Ralph's twins, even though they didn't know he was a vampire....more
