Review: Horns, Hugs, and Hunger (Gods & Demons #3) by Kaye Draper

Read my review of Gods & Demons book 1, Fates, Fins, and Fangs. Read my review of Gods & Demons book 2, Wishes, Wings, and Woes. Events pick up steam in the latest installment to this serial epic, which I appreciated. Action, adventure, and sexiness galore, which is what we’ve come to love and expectContinue reading “Review: Horns, Hugs, and Hunger (Gods & Demons #3) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Dark Orchid Trilogy by Auryn Hadley

Power of Lies (Book 1) The easiest way to include a lot of erotica in a fantasy novel is to toss in some lust magic. But Hadley doesn’t keep things quite so simple, by layering in other elements of magic to her excellent world-building. The erotica always makes sense, based on the rules of theContinue reading “Review: Dark Orchid Trilogy by Auryn Hadley”

Review: Demons’ Muse Series by Auryn Hadley

The Kiss of Death (Book 1) The “angels are bad, demons are good” trope is not unfamiliar in paranormal romance, but this series puts a different spin on things by including a unique magic system, multiple dimensions, and a new way to look at how angels and demons affected religion on Earth. The heroine’s powerContinue reading “Review: Demons’ Muse Series by Auryn Hadley”

Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn

A Rational Arrangement (Book 1) There’s a diamond in this book, but it’s smothered by the occasional downside to self-publishing. On the surface, the author did everything right. Great cover, no blatant typos, solid plot, well-developed characters, unique world building elements. Unfortunately, this is where I plug the need for an impartial substantive or developmentalContinue reading “Review: Arranging Paradise Series by L. Rowyn”

Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk

Restless Spirits (Book 1) I’m diving into another series by Hawk, and I couldn’t be happier. He’s proven time and time again to be a storyteller I know I will enjoy, so I was excited to start fresh with a new batch of characters in another historical paranormal romance setting. I enjoyed the early interactionsContinue reading “Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk

“A Christmas Hex” (Book 2.5) This is one of those stories that could have worked any time of year — but the fact that it occurred around Christmas made it all the sweeter. After reading the full-length novels in this series, it was easy to forget that witches and familiars in New York City didContinue reading “Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Not Quite Hunter (Not Quite #3) by Kaye Draper

Plenty of things happened in this installment to the Not Quite series, but in the end, nothing changed. I didn’t see much character development, and though Sam had a sexy interlude with a new character, nothing about the conclusion hinted that there might be more to the relationship. I got the feeling that Draper doesn’tContinue reading “Review: Not Quite Hunter (Not Quite #3) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk

Now that Hawk has thoroughly established the rules of the Hexworld series, it was time to start breaking them. The events of this book took elements of familiars and witches to new levels, in intriguing ways that made for a mystery that acted as the perfect backdrop for the burgeoning relationship between Isaac and Bill.Continue reading “Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk

Every book in this series gets better on multiple levels. Hawk continues to pull threads on the over-arching plot, making it more intriguing and convoluted without losing any of the believability of such events in the world he has created. In tandem, each romance both supports and is affected by the greater events. I wasContinue reading “Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. Once again, DeCandido has blown me away with his knowledge of genre tropes and how to bend them to his will to create a fantastic story. This time, he combines the magic of police procedurals with high fantasy (via table-topContinue reading “Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido”
