    It's 1875, and the morals of Queen Victoria mean nothing to London's wayward and debauched elite. Young but naïve Clarissa Longleigh is visiting London for the first time. She is eager to meet Lord Marldon, the man to whom she's been promised, knowing only that he's handsome, dark, and sophisticated. In fact he is depraved, louche, and has a taste for sexual excess.

    Madeleine says: "Good raunchy erotica"
    "Storyline had great potential until....."
    Overall

    Until every character in the first hour had pretty much topped every other character or at least tried to. I get that people sometimes like sex just for the sake of it but I was really looking forward to the story. It got lost in the repeated scenes of hot debauchery and "dark love". If you want turn of the century porn, here tis!

  • Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Pamela I Greene says: "Amelia Peabody has competition"
    "Love it, love it, love it!!!"
    Overall

    It reminded me of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen but better. It was very unique and a perfect mix of science, romance, and the supernatural. Very good buy! Can't wait for the next part.

    Niki Ky spends her days in a medicated haze, haunted by the ghosts of those she left behind 10 years ago after a confrontation against an unspeakable evil that left her shattered. To find peace, Niki must return to the house on the side of Red Mountain in Birmingham, Alabama-to face creatures no human should ever have to face.

    Carol says: "Whaa???"

    Overall

    Don't bother. This is one you'll wish you could get your credits back on. Hard to follow, no real direction. Tried to make it through an hour but couldnt.

    Story

    When a vampire serial killer sends Anita Blake a grisly souvenir from Las Vegas, she has to warn Sin City's local authorities what they're dealing with. Only it's worse than she thought. Ten officers and one executioner have been slain - paranormal style. Anita heads to Vegas, where's she's joined by three other federal marshals, including the ruthless Edward. It's a good thing he always has her back, because when she gets close to the bodies, Anita senses "tiger" too strongly to ignore it.

    Evelyn says: "Finally, Anita's back!"
    "Boring!"
    Overall

    I usually like Laurell Hamilton but this book could not have been longer and more repetitive. Each chapter is like the one before reworded and just as verbose and boring. I would not recommend it.

    This second novel in the acclaimed Greywalker series finds PI Blaine Harper investigating a chilling case as Halloween approaches. After university researchers create an artificial poltergeist, the team leader suspects someone is faking the phenomena. When a student is murdered, Blaine is asked to investigate. Stepping into the spirit world, she realizes the haunting may be very real. But that doesn't necessarily mean a ghost did the killing.

    Audiobook Addict says: "Harper and the Grey"
    "Great story...horrible narrator"
    Overall

    This story has wonderful potential however the narrator is really, really bad. She over enunciates, speaks too slowly at some points and just distracts from the story in general. You can hardly tell the characters apart in some cases.
