(Sorry can't remember the name lol) Once I picked it up, I didn't put it down unless I just had to.
The author's description of Anne is amazing. It's a love story, but with a lot of twists and turns and heartache. My heart cries for Anne for the turmoil and losses that she has to suffer. Being a mother myself I would go nuts going months at a time not being able to see them. Although she is doing it for her families protection and I can't say that I wouldn't do the same if I were in her circumstances.
Another thing I loved is the love that she has for the people in her life. She committed adultery, true, but she loved and cared for him.
Awesome book! Definitely check it out if you dig Historical Fiction/Romance...more

Coming from someone that loved watching X-Files growing up this was definitely my bag of tea. When it first started with the character, Lucy waking up in a barn in horse manure, I was a little taken back. But after the first couple of pages I was hooked! When she meets Aric, it's like her whole life is turned upside down and she learns things about herself and things all around her that aren't quite as they seem.
One of the big things that I loved about this book was the concept of it. Aric is a whisperer, which to me gave me the impression of when a vampire “glamours” someone. He basically makes it easier for the people that the aliens abduct by calming their nerves. But there's so much more to it, harvesting wyk, which is explained as energy. The things that the characters are able to do with wyk is amazing as well.. I could go on and on, but I don't want to give away toooo much :)
Another thing that I loved about it is the relationship between Aric and Lucy. It's a real love, but your average lustful yearning that a lot of paranormal romances have. From what I felt while reading it, they genuinely care for each other, and Aric one mission is to protect Lucy at all cost. Very chivalrous in the way he treats her, and let's be honest ladies, that's always a good thing for a man to have.
If you are wanting something fast paced and full of action, then this is definitely one that I would recommend. In my opinion, it's one of the best paranormal romances that I have read and I would recommend to anyone....more

The story's main character is Beka, who's had her fair share of bad luck in her past and has the emotional (and physical) baggage to prove it. She is living with her brother in a building that is owned by Vincent. It starts off right away with Beka learning that Vincent is a vampire and that she is the only one that didn't know. When she finally starts trying to get use to the idea she is attacked by Steopa (another vampire).
What goes on after is a story of how she copes with becoming a vampire with the help of Steopa who is linked to her through his bite. She learns that she has a rare gift, something that is beneficial to her more than once.
I really enjoyed this book because there was no dull moments, I had to tear myself away from the book more than once to do the mommy/wife thing. I was so captivated by the story of her transitioning and the adventure that she embarks on to rid her city of evil at it's deadliest. (I am trying REALLY hard not to have any spoilers here)
Another thing that stood out in the book is the characters, but it did leave me wanting to know more about Vincent and Steopa's lives pre and post vampire. I really liked Beka's character for the simple fact she wasn't the perfect 10 girl that you read in most books. She's got a little weight on her and she's very insecure about herself in many ways. She's selfish to the point that she's only concerned about what goes on in her worldl Although after turning into a vampire she learns to except herself and in turn learns how selfish she had been. I believe she more than proves herself as being selfless and learning that even though her past has demons, it doesn't mean that it has to rule her life. ...more
