Book Review: A Thousand Lifetimes by Kate Hawthorne

Vampires are my jam, and Hawthorne is one of my favorite authors. The only reason I hadn’t read this book before now is that I’m rationing her titles since I’m almost out of “new” things to read by her. Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t get enough sleep lastContinue reading “Book Review: A Thousand Lifetimes by Kate Hawthorne”

Book Review: A Mage’s Guide to Human Familiars (R’iyah Family Archives #1) by A.J. Sherwood

American readers of a certain age probably got a strange hit of nostalgia while reading this delightful queer paranormal romance novel. The ways Sherwood presents the mage/familiar bond and how Bel interacts with both Nico and Garen gave me lovely echoes of the television show Sentinel; however, this book is not fanfic with the serialContinue reading “Book Review: A Mage’s Guide to Human Familiars (R’iyah Family Archives #1) by A.J. Sherwood”

Book Review: Bee Cave Magic by Kelly Fox

Fox is an author for whom I’ll read everything released, even romances tropes I don’t particularly prefer. However, I think the “fated mates” concept works better for a novella-length story than a full novel, so it was even easier to spend an hour with this delightful re-release, originally published before I was a fan ofContinue reading “Book Review: Bee Cave Magic by Kelly Fox”

Book Review: Weave the Dark, Weave the Light by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I am friends with this author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. A novella is a tricky length for a story, especially one that includes fantasy worldbuilding. However, Zabo does an amazing job with this sweet yet steamy romance between two unexpected characters. Jonathan is both something like a dream come trueContinue reading “Book Review: Weave the Dark, Weave the Light by Anna Zabo”

Review: Soulmates Series by Liv Rancourt

This post includes reviews of the currently available books in the Soulmates series: Soulmates (#1) Tested (#2) Soulmates (Book 1) One of the good things to come out of this crazy era we live in is the ability to connect with people we otherwise might not meet. I’d seen this book in my perusal ofContinue reading “Review: Soulmates Series by Liv Rancourt”

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.
