She's been hurt,Darkling is the best in this series so far in my opinion. She's my favorite character and she has so many layers to her personality. She's been hurt, stripped bare and victimized by the jerk, Dredge, that turned her into a vampire. She's strong, loyal and will kick anyone's ass that hurts someone she cares about. What I really like about this character is that she isn't conformed. She's technically bi in my book, she likes the men but she'll also get involved with a woman if it feels right. She's a character I want to see be made happy by Yasmine Galenorn. This story is non-stop action packed and will leave readers wanting to jump into these worlds and fight along side the sisters. The supporting characters also lend a great deal of romance, action and adventure to this story. The fight between Dredge and Menolly is heart-stopping. I was afraid of who would actually come out on top. What I like most about this series, and Yasmine Galenorn, is that we actually get to know each individual character. The books don't just sweep through and leave you guessing. Yasmine gets down and dirty with each character and really makes readers feel like each character is a friend. The ending to this story was gripping and I can't wait for the next installment. Bring on the dragon!!!!
This is my first story by R.G. Alexander and I found myself totally blown away. Reminiscent of early Laurell K. Hamilton and the worlds of Kelley Arms This is my first story by R.G. Alexander and I found myself totally blown away. Reminiscent of early Laurell K. Hamilton and the worlds of Kelley Armstrong and Kim Harrison, LIFTING THE VEIL brings the world of magic to the reader's senses. I loved everything about this story. I really enjoyed Meru's reaction to discovering all the hidden aspects to the world she lives in. From lizard men to shape shifters, she appeared way in over her head. Although she starts out with a very amusing reaction, she soon gets over her initial shock and really finds her place in the world. Damon is yummy with a capital Y. He made my insides tingle and my heart pound. The sensual scenes between Meru and Damon are going to rock your world. They are just outstanding! I kind of felt like a voyeur sometimes. Above all of this, the urban fantasy feel really made this story believable for me. If you're looking for a kick butt urban fantasy with strong paranormal and erotic elements, read this book. I promise you're going to love it. I'll be looking for all of R.G. Alexander's books now!

I was a little taken aback at how quickly Zoe accepted her fate as a “kidnapped victim” but realized that the pull she felt her captor really changed the effect of the story for me. Although a very short read, Ms. Monroe really packed a wallop of elements into the pages; passion, adventure, a smoking hot sex scene…just enough to keep readers mouths watering for more....more

However, after reading it to a child, he thought doing these things would be very funny and we were unable to convince him that this was fiction and didn't really happen. It's pretty difficult to just say "We can't continue reading" to a 5 year old. They just don't understand why it's not appropriate. I was really disappointed given the fact that Tilly never felt remorse for the things she did and was never expected to apologize. Even the "lesson she learned" with her red shoes didn't have any real consequences given her family kept laughing about it just leading her to continue believing that her pranks were okay....more

THE GUARDIANS by Mandy M. Roth is sizzling hot. This story is definitely on my top five list of favorites from this wickedly talented author. Everythi THE GUARDIANS by Mandy M. Roth is sizzling hot. This story is definitely on my top five list of favorites from this wickedly talented author. Everything about THE GUARDIANS was perfect for me; the non-stop action, the hidden lives, the passion and romance that blossoms between the characters, especially the characters themselves. Madelyn is a Guardian, sworn to protect the innocent from those that would hurt them. Fighting the bad guys—vamps, werewolves and other paranormal creatures, has left Madelyn a very tough woman. When she and Brady find themselves extremely attracted to one another, she's not sure how to handle it. Brady, of course, is raring and ready to consummate their relationship. Brady is a very witty and endearing character who, for me, was a perfect match for Madelyn. If you're looking for a high-voltage paranormal romance, look no further. You can never go wrong with a story by Mandy M. Roth!
I love Mandy M. Roth and EXECUTIVE DECISION is all about why. This story is wonderfully captivating and will have readers panting for more. ElizabethI love Mandy M. Roth and EXECUTIVE DECISION is all about why. This story is wonderfully captivating and will have readers panting for more. Elizabeth is a very engaging character and I think someone most women can relate to. She's tough, a hard worker and she just wants someone to make her feel complete, even though she doesn't realize it herself. Dale is the perfect counterpoint to her. He's a very lovable character—always witty, laid back and will do anything to make Elizabeth happy. The passion that starts exploding between these two will take your breath away. It definitely left me feeling warm and tingly. There is an element of drama to EXECUTIVE DECISION that really held my interest. Elizabeth is semi-involved with her boss and has been hiding it from Dale. Lies, secrets and deceit are never good bedfellows. If you're looking for a story that you won't be able to put down, with great characters, wonderful romance and wicked passion, this is, without a doubt, the story for you!
