    Story

    Be careful...the cover really implies that this is supposed to be a retold version of Beauty and the Beast Steampunk, Urban Fantasy style. While I agree to the Urban Fantasy, I wouldn’t exactly say this is Steampunk. That being said this is an Adult Romance that is mind blowing breath taking and beautiful. I don't want to give a lot of details but amazing does not describe this book! The writing isgreat and the plot is well planned and executed. I loved both Jolie and Hauk. They were both well-developed characters. There were several secondary characters that added to the book.

    There was not HEA for this Beauty and this Beast but maybe in the next book....I had to keep that in mind when rating this book since this was a good start to a new series, but my only criticism was that I was left wanting...wanting to know more of the mystery about Hauk and wanting more of the relationship between Jolie and Hauk. I can only hope as I wait for the next books in the series.

    Expected publication of How Beauty Saved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight #2): February 2013; Followed up shortly by How Beauty Loved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight #3) : May 2013.

As museum docent and gift shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people - and her powers in check - while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves.

    Story

    The concept of the book and the series is intriguing, I just wish that it had been more interesting and fast paced. I love CW and really wanted to love this book but it just didn’t turn out that way, I did enjoy it as most of the storyline was good but I felt that the quick discover as notes in the book to explain what an ancient gargoyle never knew to be an afterthought and just fell short and way too hurried for something so important. I understand that a lot of background had to be laid in this book and I did enjoy the book although it was slow going at times so I will check out the next book in the series, to see what happens from here.

    Marie Bellavance has known for years that she will die of the same incurable disease her mother did. That's why she never dated and doesn't allow anyone to get close to her. But now, as an employee of the paranormal dating agency Midnight Liaisons, she has a chance: if she can find someone to turn her into a supernatural creature, she'll be cured!

    Story

    One of the things I adored about this book was the very different fatal disease that Marie had. I’ve read books before where people have cancer, or something of the sort, but never before had I ever heard of fatal insomnia. Who would have ever thought such a thing existed? It was so unique and different!

    The sexy times are pretty hot and well written, and affectionate. In romance miscommunication is always a factor, so that is in there. But I really enjoyed the story and stayed up well past my bedtime to find out what would happen; while who Marie would hook up with was apparent, the outcome was not.

    I thoroughly enjoyed both Marie & Josh. Their story was simply riveting. Must Love Fangs is a page turner, sexy and fun. Can't get enough of this series. Definitely a must read for paranormal lovers.

    I think this was my favorite of the series.

    Just get up and ride… Much to his family's displeasure, Michael Hartford pens popular Western paperbacks. But despite his cowboy image, he's more Central Park West than Wild West. With a major photo shoot coming up, he'll need to be a cowboy—not just look like one! And Michael has only a week at the Last Chance Ranch to get the giddy-up in his game…. After a girl-fight scandal, socialite-turned-housekeeper Keri Fitzpatrick is cheerily unrepentant as she waits for the dust to settle. It's not long before she discovers Michael's secret and a whole lot of similarities…including an irresistible temptation to play Naughty Naked Cowboy! But does this scrappy socialite have what it takes to ensure her would-be cowboy is both saddle sore and satisfied?

    This is a simple straight forward hot little romance set in the west. There is an instant attraction and there are no major struggles or any angst. It's nice to read ones like this that is just a hot sexy story. This is part of a series and I have almost all of them so I do feel invested I these characters. Other stories in the series have more substance but this one has the most heat.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    THIS IS A MUST SERIES!!!
    There is so much laugh-out-loud fun and by far the best dialogue I've heard in a very long time. (And Tavia Gilbert does an AWESOME job) Brilliant!

    Sexy vampires (Bones OH....on the top list of PNR BF lists) and a kick-ass heroine.

    Even if the paranormal genre is NOT YOUR favorite - this author's writing style and fantastic sense of humor will draw you into the world with vampires.

    And I have to end this review with one of my favorite quotes ... "Lucifer's bouncing balls, Kitten, not again!" <<< Still makes me laugh out loud!

    There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while. Unfortunately, she wasn't alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don't, when they're vampires.

    Why oh why doesn't this book have a series following it.

    This is a little dark, very inventive, alternate-universe/vampire novel

    Ever since I first picked it up, I re-listened to Sunshine every few months, and it never ceases to enthrall and delight me. It has become one of my favorite books of all time.

    When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport - twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia. Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone - a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable, and intensely passionate - and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else. However, Olivia is in for a surprise....

    Don't even hesitate....this was AWESOME. This is one of those books I really don't want to even review as to not give anything away...so many HOT scenes, twits and turns. I never use credits for anything under a certain price...but if you only use credits, even though this is a title under $10, it is SO worth it!

    Camilla can set her watch by her hunky rocket-scientist neighbor who jogs past her window each day. She relishes each glimpse of his shirtless abs, and is dying to see more. But it's hard to connect with a man who doesn't seem to know she exists.... Ivan feels at home in the lab, not in social situations. When he finally approaches his attractive neighbor, it's not for a date - he wants tutoring in how to behave at an important fundraiser. Ivan doesn't expect the chemistry between them to be quite so explosive....

    This is Fifty meets the Big Bang Therory. In truth if I did not already read the Shades of Gray series I may have liked it better... But there were so many direct rip offs that it took away from an already just ok book
