    Joy Randall's Top-five tips for vampire hunters: Location, location, location. Vampires won't be caught dead (ha!) in places like discos, 10-minute lube shops, or Switzerland. Remember, if you wouldn't be there, neither would a bloodsucker. Trust your eyes. You know the handsome, annoyingly arrogant, self-assured man in the shadows with long hair and a cleft in his chin? He's your vampire. No matter how tempting it might be, do not "accidentally" acquire a paper cut on your finger and suggest your vampire kiss it to make it better....

    Cow Tom, born into slavery in Alabama in 1810 and sold to a Creek Indian chief before his 10th birthday, possessed an extraordinary gift: the ability to master languages. As the new country developed westward, and Indians, settlers, and blacks came into constant contact, Cow Tom became a key translator for his Creek master and was hired out to US military generals.

    Yes, this book met my expectations. I knew little of the complexity of the Black and Indian struggle. don’t think the writing style took anything away from Lalita Tademy made Cow Tom’s story have the weight needed to explain the beginnings and the desire to strive ahead and succeed against all odds. The fact that he knew so many languages and was such a caring person brought value to me. Lalita really had me at the edge of my chair after Rose’s story began, maybe because I like history from a woman’s perspective – the book really came alive in Part 2 and 3.

    For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.

    I love Jane Yellow Rock. She is loyal to Alex and Eli and protects the fang bangers even when it goes against the grain to do do. Christine Vham is a fantastic narrator. I love Bruiser and Jane together in and his accent sounds sexy as h*ll! Beast is evolving and I hope Leo the MOC is always has an agenda causing all to look out.

    Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn't sure he's fit to lead - especially when he meets the one woman he can't claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire. Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant - if only he'd let it. But Calla isn't about to give up on her mate without a fight.

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

The narrator is just amazing. Keep up the good work. I swear this series could be turned into a tv series. J.D. Robb is a sensational story teller.

    Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

    Story

    For better or worse, I read all the reviews before I started the book. In fact, I have long awaited for Burned next book in this series whether it was about Mac, Baron’s or Dani’s; I just wanted the story to continue. So after I read the reviews I was prepared to be underwhelmed.
    I think Karen Marie Moening’s Burned was genius, surprising and fantastic. For those who complained about Dani’s age – she addressed it. Mac and Baron’s relationship continued as I expected it to full of love, lust and controversy. The nuances of the actions of the Unseelie King, the 9 and the “evil book” confounded me as a reader. As an author Karen wrote a book to be proud of. Yes, I missed “mega” but that’s what happens some books don’t just have a happy expected ending. I can’t wait for the next in this series. I rarely “tweet” but I have to go on line and give a big shout out to this fanciful, whimsical story!

    I loved the narrators too!

    Damon Chroi has known the weight of ruling in loneliness for thousands of years. The tall, painfully handsome fae lord was born with so much power, the fae kings not only envied but feared him, and banished him to a forbidden realm to be forgotten. There, he was tasked with ruling over the deadliest creatures known to the fae worlds, and his veritable battle as their sovereign is never-ending. As one of the thirteen Kings, his destiny foretells an end to his solitude with the appearance of an equally powerful queen.
