I won the Give Away from http://paranormalkiss.webs.com/

Wow Wow Wow! Awesome book, it was totally HOT! I loved this paranormal romance, it had a lot of great erotica scenes in it and was action packed with Skriker (human/demon) and Rose (human/angel) hunting down all evil especially the ones who had killed some of their families. I totally loved the battle between Lilith's daughter and Skriker and he did her justice by blowing a firery hole in her head. I was like "take that you bitch". I total

4 Cups Review from Coffee Time Romance:

"With a cascade of dark curls and a body loaded with lush curves, she looks like an angel, but that is only half the story. Rose is a ferocious and relentless hunter in search of the demons who killed her mother. A loner, she prefers to track down and deal with her prey by herself; she does not need or want help from anyone, including her father.

He looks like Billy Idol and kisses like a devil, which is probably because he is the son of a beautiful Swedish

I have been eyeing this one off for a while now and held off for a while only because I live in Australia and was umming and ahhhhing about having to pay for international delivery. So of course the solution was Kindle!!! God love the internet I tell you.
What caught my eye first with this novel was its cover design, which I found out was done by the author. Amazing artist and amazing author. The main character Skriker had my heart throbbing from the start, his bad boy rep hitting me hard. And to

Rose and Striker's story was a combination of sweet forbidden love and ass-kicking hunters who rid the world of evil...while having fun doing it. Packed with gritty action scenes and gruesome details this story does the horror genre proud. Not to mention the sex scenes steam it up also. Overall, this was a good quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed! ...more

I had heard ‘talk’ about this book prior to reading, and I must say, it did not disappoint. For a new author Danielle Smith, has a good writing voice, a good vocabulary, and good descriptive talents.

Black Dog and Rebel Rose, a Novella at 156 pages does not miss any main element for its size.

I only say this, as many readers sometimes pass up a book like this because they want "a big one", not remembering that sometimes "size doesn’t matter".

Black Dog is Skriker’s nickname. He is a handso

this is a short but enticing tale of demons, angels and vampires in a modern take on the classic duel between good and evil. the hero is the devilishly handsome, harley-riding 'bad boy' that every girl wants. the heroine is the vivacious goddess that all guys fantasize about....but she's a loner...cold, distant, aloof. she's a girl on a mission to slay demons and vamps in a world that seems to be overrun by evil. between bouts of satisfying his lust by breaking hearts, the hero is on a similar q ...more
Paranormal Kiss
Black Dog and Rebel Rose by Danielle D. Smith is an erotic, action packed and entertaining read. It is about Demon hunters Rose and Skriker. They each have a secret that they keep hidden from most. Both are tough dynamic characters. Their paths cross in Paradise Hills, an abandoned town rumored to house a large population of vampires. There they find what they were looking for as well as what they weren't. Their chemistry sizzles from the first meeting and they soon discover they must work toget ...more

I went into this with high hopes and I am sad to say I am disappointed. I think the author tried to fit too much into the story and I felt no connection with the characters, or between the characters. The dialogue and pacing did not work for me either. For example, upon meeting the day before, one of the characters muses on how they should have "done this a long time ago". Maybe my copy was missing some chapters?

I did like the idea behind the story, the setting and the characters back stories.

WINNER OF THE RECOMMENDED READ AWARD AND THE REVIEWER'S CHOICE AWARD

A dying demon's tip leads Rose to an abandoned town off the beaten path, a place once called Paradise Hill that's no more than an unfortunate run-down shadow of the nice little place it once was, a place where people worked and kids went to school. Now, it shelters things that go bump in the night: vampires, ghouls...and the worst of the worst. Demons. Just

Non-Stop Action and Sizzling Sex

Known, among friend and foes alike, by his nick name Black Dog, Skriker had it all. He was handsome as sin and had amazing prowess when it came to satisfying a willing multitude of eager ladies or fighting ferocious battles against the evil denizens from hell and beyond. Yet he was also burdened - and blessed – with a secret. Alone and free with no room for pesky entanglements, that was the life he lived and the life he cherished, until, by chance, he met Rose.

I've never read anything by this author, but her blurb on Goodreads described the hero as "hawt", and hinted at erotic scenes to make you sweat. Plus it was being offered at a reduced price by Amazon, so I bought it.
I was not pleased that I didn't get a cover with my novel.
I was pleased that on the first page she quoted from Puscifer, one of the bands featuring Maynard of Tool. Maynard loves women and sex, and many of Puscifer's songs celebrate that in the most sexual way that they can.

There is more than humans occupying the world in this novella-length erotic tale of two hunters who protect the innocent people from what is out to get them. These two hunters have a great deal in common, but then again they both have a few secrets that place them on opposite ends of the spectrum.

Skyrker is a big, tall blond tatooed rockstar of a man that cage fights and demon hunts for his work while bedding women and smoking his way through a pack of Camels to relax. He loves his Harley named

This book had a kick ass lady hunter named Rose, and a biker & demon hunter named Skriker (aka Black dog to his friends). They met while on a mission to rid a town of vampires and the sparks flew. I would like to say it was like good girl means bad ass boy, but Rose was actually a badass girl too.
Anyway, I have to be honest, I rarely like books where vampires are described as varmin. I can take it in Kate Daniels, because the writing is superb and the plot is very engaging. This book wasn’t tha

This a fast furious read that captured me right away. The characters are fresh, raw, damaged and molded by their youth and bound by their natures.

Black Dog & Rebel Rose is a tale of horror, brutal battles, hot sex and two unlikely soul mates.

Rose is a hunter; she hunts all that is dark, disturbing and foul. Striker is half demon, half human, hunting his own kind, exacting revenge for what they did to his family. Striker and Rose collide when they both are hunting the same nest of vampyres. Str

There were a great many things I enjoyed about this story. I loved the main characters - two souls lost - one part demon, one part angel. Both hunters and the very best in their field. Both enigmatically sexy and sexual - so that their trysts were suitably hot!

I must confess - I knew I'd love it when I saw the art-work by Danielle, the author. Check out her stuff at her blog and face-book.

Only thing I would moan about was the edit could have been sharper. Regardless, I will recommend this marv

Well this book was a surprise!
Confession time - this was my first erotica novel read and I didnt know what to expect.
The first few pages were clearly well written but I was a little uneasy, wondering if it was just going to gratuitous bonking all the way through...but boy was I wrong.
I loved the building relationship between Black Dog and Rose - it was real and believable and utterly irresistable.
Congratulations to Ms Smith on crafting an un-put-downable read that was engrossing on a whole lou

I read this on a dark and stormy night. The perfect book for being enthralled with hot lovin' and getting the blood pressure going with some serious action scenes with the bad guys. Awesome descriptions which put you in the scenes and involved in the story.
The story of Striker aka Black Dog and Rose is one of timeless love and soul recognition. I will be reading more of this author to see where this may lead.

Wow! Danielle Smith knows how to suck her readers into this graphic Hunter novel. Gruesome action abounds all around our Skriker and Rose as they are on a hunt to destroy a huge nest of Bloods. While spewing guts and bodily parts everywhere around them, they get to know one another's secrets and are drawn to one another like magnets despite how opposite they are. This is a must read for any bad-ass tattoo clad harley riding butt-kicking junkie. Kudos to you Danielle - Awesome book. ...more

I wish this book was longer because I enjoyed Skriker and Rose. I loved Striker's bad boy image but he was so sweet towards his Rose :) I thought the ending was cool too, it left me smiling. It also left you wanting to have the story continue to see what happens with the father. Very good short story. I just purchased In The Neon...Strikers parent's story. ...more

Skriker and Rose fall in love, while hunting and killing demons to satisfy their resentment of past demon tortures inflicted on each of their mothers. Black Dog and Rebel Rose is comfortable read to feed your Angel/Demon cravings.

Bawdy and gentle at the same time

Skriker and Rose are both tough as nails hunters with secrets and complicated feelings. Ms. Smith has a style of writing that pulled me right in from the beginning and had me hanging on until the end. She is able to paint a picture with her discriptions so that you are actually there and see everything happening. This book is not for the faint of heart, there is explicit language, steamy well written love scenes, nasty fight scenes and dark settings. I loved it.

I received this book as an ARC for a honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.

Rose is a hunter searching for her mothers killer. Striker is also a hunter with a secret. Something brings Rose and Striker together in a vampire filled town. Can they team up to get rid of the threats, or do they fight on their own? Rose is hiding her own secret do they trust in each other.

A very good read.
