The Fool (Games We Play 0.5)
That's what they always say, and for now, vampire hunter Delia hopes it's true. After years of mediocre performances, she's nothing more than a grunt in her hunter league, stuck on surveillance duty and low-level vamp busts.
So, when her informant drops an amazing lead in her lap, she jumps at the opportunity to take down the region's rumore ...more
I am a bit of a fan of Liz Meldon’s stories, mainly because they are so different from anything else I usually read. I love me some paranormal, and the stories that she writes tick all my required boxes for this genre.
The Fool is a quick sexy introduction to some of the characters that will potentially be featuring in the authors new Games We Play series.
"I don’t mind a little danger."
A Masked Ball at the exclusive Banesview Hotel, the opportunity to kill an elusive ...more
This wasn't the best novella I've read but not the worst, and I think that my main problem was the writing style and the fact that I couldn't click with it.
It's a very very short read and I think you should give it a change if you want to see how it is, if you like the style, the characters, so you know if you buy and read the next book or not. For me, as I said, it wasn't amazing, it had some good parts here and there, bu ...more
And what a fool I was... Liz Meldon totally fooled me with this one.
After years of mediocre performances, Delia Roberts decides to jump on a hot tip regarding a big fish. A high level vamp who will give her the chance to boost her career as a vampire huntress. All she has to do is stab the fucker and get out of there. Easier said than done, right?.
One chance to change her life. Don't fuck it up, Delia. But well, shit happens and she got distracted. A distraction in the ...more
This is my first book by Liz Meldon and I found the wri ...more
The Fool laughed and gave her waist a little squeeze. “Ah, but we’re all liars in our own way.”
As soon as I saw vampires and masquerade in the description, I knew that I had to read this book. I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book! Liz Meldon does a fantastic job describing the setting for us. I had the perfect picture in my mind of the elaborate garden party/masquerade ball. I love the writing style. With this being a novella/prologue (the first book, The King coming out later this y...more
Seduction can be a dangerous game. A cat and a mouse. The cat believes it to be the cat, but is it the mouse?
I loved the dance that brought the two main characters together! So subtle, so yearning, so exquisite!
I truly enjoyed their little dance around each other!
I don't want to say too much (hopefully I haven't already), but this was a fascinating read I didn't think I'd like. (That's why I put off reading it for so long).
I fell for The Fool!
The characters were developed and I could ...more
Delia is a hunter who craves the greatness that has successfully evaded her during her short career. Tired of picking up low-level goons, she decides to jump on a hot tip regarding an evasive high level vamp that is destined to finally boost her career. Armed with an ill-thought out plan, she enters the vampire masquerade and finds who she is looking for in a way that she never expected.
If you’re looking for a vamp ...more
The Fool, in many ways, is my big departure from writing fanfiction. Even with my ongoing paranormal romance serial, Lovers and Liars, my characters are still, for the most part, public domain folks that I've taken creative liberties with. Here, Delia and the Fool are my own little babies, and I'm really excited to share them with everyone. I was really k ...more
Pretty good, pretty good :)
Pretty darn good. Paranormal romance isn't usually my thing, but this was very good. A different spin on the usual vampire tropes I've read before.
A hunter named, Delia, goes off on her own to a masquerade party looking for one of the upper level vampires, but instead ends up finding the Fool. Let's just say that she gets much more than she bargains for with him.
The naughty bits in this story were pretty hot. The couple felt like they were actually intimate and not ju ...more
“The Fool” introduces us to Delia, a low-level vampire hunter who has been trying to garner the respect of the vampire hunting league. However, no matter what she did they refused to acknowledge her efforts. Therefore, when an opportunity arose for her to prove that she was good at her job she ...more
The Fool is a prequel novella so I sped through it. It's easily doable in one sitting if you've got an hour or two spare, and it's every bit as sexy and intriguing as I've come to expect from Meldon.
Personally I found it slower to start with than her first novella in the Lovers and Liars series but I still enjoyed it. In fact, I've already got The King waiting on my kindle, so I'm looking forward to getting around to that ...more
I've given this a 3 star rating, even though it's more of a 3.5, only because I wanted more of it!
This novella is the prologue for the upcoming novel The King, which is the first in the Games We Play series due out later this year. It focuses on Delia, a young hunter who is trying to live up to her family name and reputation and become a respected vampire hunter. She is frustrated that she isn't being ...more
I will admit that when I requested the title, I was completely judging the book by its cover and I didn't read the synopsis before I started. I believe this has a lot to do with my lower rating.
The main character Delia is a hunter of Vampires and is hunting a top tier vampire known as Claudia at a Masquerade Ball that it is rumoured said vampire is supposed to be attending.
If I knew that the story was going to be set up like ...more

The Fool (Games We Play 1) Liz Meldon
### 4 Stars ###
This is a great short, hot and erotic paranormal read.
Delia is a vampire hunter, she is slightly below average and really wants to prove herself. She hears about a masquerade ball that the main Vampire Claudia maybe attending and Delia decides this could be her chance, will she find Claudia in this dangerous pursuit?
I did find this book hard to initially get into, Liz Meldon has a really different style of writing. I am glad I persevered and ...more
THE FOOL starts off with Delia, a vampire hunter without much clout, but through a useful tip from her informant, begins pursuing an important vampire leader. Unfortunately, a really sexy guy keeps getting in the way (don't we all wish we had that problem?).
I love Meldon's characters--quirk, sass, realistic dialogue, and some hot erotic scenes. She has a true gift of explaining *just* the right amount, leaving *just* the right amount of inform ...more
I love paranormal and I love Vampires, Vampire hunters, haven't read too many, so jumped at the chance to expand on that.
Loved the setting, a ball, masquerade at that, with the hiding and not knowing that goes along with it, adding to that the fact that Delia was completely out of her element, last minute is not a good look at this event, but luckily, The Fool is on hand to to ma ...more
Loved this novella. It's the first book in a new series and i loved all the characters.
Deliah is great, she wants to prove herself as a huntress so goes to a vamp/human masked party.....
Things don't always go to plan and she meets a gentleman that intrigues her but she's there to work. The fool doesn't give in easily and Deliah eventually gives in.
The stranger is dressed in a fools mask and is not dressed as fancy as other guests, a bit like Deliah she didn't realise people went so ...more
The Fool by Liz Meldon is the prologue to an upcoming new Paranormal Romance Serial called Games we Play. As a small taste of what is to come, it is incredible.
Delia is very likable, and the story moves quickly. Had I not needed sleep desperately, it would have been read in one sitting.
There is intrigue, heat, and some humor; hard to complain with any of that. I cannot wait for the series to begin.
**Review has be ...more
Delia is adorable but has her flaws, which makes her more very likable and someone you can relate to. She knows she has some trouble, but tries to work through them. The fool is a perfect counter part in this story and especially at the end because lovable.

In this novella the reader gets to know Delia, a vampier huntress, in the vampier hunting league. She is a young woman inspired bye her aunt to start this career path.
