Review: Cold Hard Ground (Carpe Noctem #1) by Ariel Millar

I am a huge fan of this author in her persona as a contemporary MM romance writer (E.M. Lindsey), so I immediately pounced on this book when it came out. Then I did that weird thing where I put off reading it, only to devour it in a single evening once I started. I’m notContinue reading “Review: Cold Hard Ground (Carpe Noctem #1) by Ariel Millar”

Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novella from the author. I had a lot of fun with this paranormal romance novella because it was a quick introduction to a fascinating new world with lots of possibilities. From the author’s note at the beginning, it’s obvious that Fox has close emotional ties with thisContinue reading “Review: Hallowed Moon by Kelly Fox”

Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning

Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this book from the authors. This reaction didn’t happen when I read the previous co-written books by these authors, but it turns out when you combine Hawthorne’s steamy angst with Denning’s sweet feels and add a healthy dose of supernatural…you get tears. Like, all the tears. They’re goodContinue reading “Review: Blood in the Water by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning”

Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone

Simone packs a wallop into two short chapters in this excellent paranormal romance story. It appears pretty self-explanatory on the surface: vampire and priest meet, and sexy shenanigans ensue. However, Simone puts her own twist on how vampires work, the priest is not quite a priest, and the shenanigans are surprisingly humorous and sweet (alongContinue reading “Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone”

Review: A Growl, a Roar, and a Purr (Lions & Tigers & Bears #1) by K. C. Wells

This book is a significant departure from other titles I’ve read by this author, but since my heart belongs to the urban fantasy genre, I knew I had to check it out. In this paranormal romance, Wells explores the shifter and fated mates tropes in this fun action-adventure romp that includes an epic heist andContinue reading “Review: A Growl, a Roar, and a Purr (Lions & Tigers & Bears #1) by K. C. Wells”

Review: The Wimberley Chronicles by Kelly Fox

Wimberley has always been a source of curiosity for me after reading Fox’s Wrecked and Wrecked: Guardians series. It’s a private black ops program, it employs Hedy and the Bash Brothers, and other than that…your guess was as good as mine. It turns out, Fox initially wrote a book featuring the full story, then usedContinue reading “Review: The Wimberley Chronicles by Kelly Fox”

Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer

I’m not sure what I expected of this book, but it was about a million times better than I anticipated. The characters, story, and situation were more exciting than I could have imagined, and it all packed an amazing emotional punch at the end. It’s one of those harder to categorize books: not quite aContinue reading “Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer”

Review: He Sees You When You’re Sleeping by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with this author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. Another Christmas in July treat, except this novella is less sweet and more vaguely terrifying. Bauer manipulates the Santa Claus trope to create an otherworldly being who fulfills the role of Santa Claus but with significantly less cheer. Kris latchesContinue reading “Review: He Sees You When You’re Sleeping by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

Hawk granted my wish and returned to his clever and imaginative Hexworld series—except moving the action to a new time and place. Prohibition Chicago is rife with story fodder, especially where magic is involved, and this book is no different. Hawk takes the traditional, in which a small-town guy escapes to the big city andContinue reading “Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: The Quiet House (Black & Blue #2) by Lily Morton

A group of paranormal specialists and investigators are gathered at a supposedly haunted house. We’ve probably all read this story before. Except this version happens to include the mysterious and amazing Blue Billings, with boyfriend Levi and mentor Tom along for the ride. What results is decidedly more in the haunted and horrifying department thanContinue reading “Review: The Quiet House (Black & Blue #2) by Lily Morton”
