Audio Review: Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn

May Contain Spoilers

Continuing my exploration of urban fantasy, I borrowed the audio book for Night Myst from the library. I admit that I totally judged The Indigo Court series by the covers. Some of those covers are incredible, and I was hoping I would be knocked out by the books. Night Myst was a mixed bag for me; I liked some aspects of the story, but overall, I found it slow going.

The Playboy Prince and the Nanny by Donna Alward

May Contain Spoilers

Ahhhhh. Thankfully, the taint from my previous read has been blissfully washed away. When I get into a reading slump, or I need a reading reset, I always reach for a short romance. Donna Alward is one of my favorite Harlequin authors, but I hadn’t read one of her non-HQN titles as of yet. When this appeared at Netgalley, I snapped it up. While I usually count on this author to deliver a convincing story with a cowboy hero, I was willing to accept a playboy prince. Livin’ the dream!

Review: Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamed

Contains Spoilers Every now and again, I pick up a book, read it, and wonder what the HELL did I just read? This is one of those books. Gather the Daughters is a dystopian, set on an island where the inhabitants, descended from ten Ancestors, follow the Shalt-nots. Their society is repulsive, the women oppressed and abused from the time they are young children. There is nothing as sacred as the relationship between fathers and daughters, and that right there was almost a “nope, I’m not reading this” premise. I mean – ICK. Read more

Audio Review: Magic to the Bone by Devon Monk

May Contain Spoilers

Allie Beckstrom works as a Hound, sniffing out illegal magic use for paying customers. Her father is the head of Beckstrom Industries, a company that has made a fortune harnessing magic so the masses can use it – for a price. Allie lives in a crappy, run-down apartment, has about twenty bucks in her pocket, and can’t even afford a cell phone. Still, it’s better than working for her father, whose magical gift is influencing others. All  her life, Allie wasn’t sure if she was making a choice because she wanted to do something, or because her father was compelling her do it.

Review: The Werebear’s Unwanted Wife by Marina Maddix

May Contain Spoilers

I had so many hopes for The Werebear’s Unwanted Wife, but it failed to meet most of my expectations. Most of my disappointment can be laid purely at the feet of Alex, the hero. He has been promised to the daughter of the Hamilton werebear clan since he was a child. He’s not happy that he has to sacrifice his future to put an end to generations of war between their clans, but his dad browbeats him into going along with the plan. He keeps wondering why he’s never heard anything about his bride to be, or seen her picture, so he sums it up to her being hideously unattractive. Obviously there is something wrong with her. And right there I thought – dude, you are a complete and utter jerk.

Review: The Werewolf Tycoon’s Baby by Celia Kyle


May Contain Spoilers

So, these Howls Romances are basically series romance with paranormal characters. I’ve read three so far, to mixed results. All of the heroes were shifters, and that’s fine because I am on a shifter kick, thanks to Kate Daniels and Kitty Norville. I am eating up PNR as fast as I can check out titles, too. I haven’t gone through a PNR or UF phase in a long, long time, so I guess I was about due. Read more
