When Roxy Thompson decides to explore the wilderness on horseback, she only intends to be gone a few hours and figures it will be safe enough– as long as she stays on the trails close to the resort. What she doesn’t count on is a mountain lion spooking her horse and then turning its sights on her. A wolf saves her in the nick of time, but it’s the handsome recluse Caleb that nurses her back to health… and then some.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting, original novel with enough mystery and tension to keep you flipping the pages well into the night. The characters were compelling and I’m very curious to see where the cards fall in the second book. Thumbs up!

Great YA/ NA paranormal novel. It threw me into the action fairly quickly and didn’t let up until the end. I adored the premise and can’t wait to see where the characters end up in book two!

Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)Fashionably Dead (The Hot Damned Series #1 ) by Robyn Peterman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book so much!

Aside from it’s fabulously inventive plot, it has the most creative, quirkified cast of characters that practically leap off the page (er, screen) in technicolor.

I found myself giggling late into the night and text more than one “gem” to a friend as I read. And then I made her read the book (she loved it too.) Then we read the next one and had an hour-long conversation about how we’d love to have our own little Beyonce & friends.

If you love your UF/ paranormal with a heaping-helping of snark, outlandish characters and humor that bites instead of tickles, definitely check out this series!

Crimson Night (Night, #1)Crimson Night by Marie Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wildly original, fast-paced and smexy. This novel was quite a ride and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. If you like your heroine sassy, smart and fighting her own personal demons, then you’ll love Pandora!

Quickie Book Review – Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain (Samantha Moon series)

Vampire Sun (Vampire for Hire, #9)Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series could only be better if Rain could manage to put out a new book every week or so, then I’d be happy. Who wouldn’t love a series about a Vamp mom with mystical qualities, a champion of the underdog, and she who flies on big black wings whenever her heart desires?

Seriously Rain, give me the next one S.T.A.T!

Quickie Book Review – Eternal Night by Carina Adly MacKenzie

Eternal NightEternal Night by Carina Adly MacKenzie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What if the ancient Gods did exist… and what if they’re still alive, yet powerless after hundreds of years of nobody believing in them? Then you’d end up with this novel.

I especially loved the interactions between the handful of Gods left. Eons of interactions make for riffs that span centuries, missed opportunities and regrets over choices long-ago made. Part fantasy, part mystery, this novel is all page-turner.

Quickie Book Review – Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

Eternal Starling (Emblem of Eternity, #1)Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I adored the premise behind this first book of a series. How past lives could potentially influence and come back to bite a gal in her present life… it’s just so intriguing. And the way that the author sets everything up with finesse and craftiness is just so tasty to read.

So what’s a girl to do when the love of your past comes back to claim you? Think you know? Well, you don’t because he’s not the only new/old guy in your life. So how do you choose yet again and how do you know who’s really your soul mate when they both say they are?

I don’t want to reveal any more, so you’ll just have to read it 🙂

Quickie Book Reveiw – Mistress of Night and Dawn by Vina Jackson

Mistress of Night and DawnMistress of Night and Dawn by Vina Jackson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the vein of The Sleeping Beauty trilogy (Anne Rice writing as A.N. Rolequare- not sure if I spelled that correctly) comes this sensual tale of a young woman’s journey into a hidden world filled with timeless traditions steeped in eroticism and sexual exploration. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is just a spicy novel– no, it is so much more. It has layers, just waiting to be peeled with each turn of the page. Excellent read.

Quickie Book Review – Witch Hunt by S.M. Reine

Witch Hunt  (Preternatural Affairs, #1)Witch Hunt by S.M. Reine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have a few authors now that, depending on what genre I’m in the mood for, I will pick up and read without even scanning the blurb or reviews. S.M. Reine has quickly become one of my go-to authors when I’m in the mood for some kick-arse paranormal/ urban fantasy escapism.

This book met my expectations and then some. I also loved how this book had a little cross over with the Tarot Witches series (hope I’m remembering that series name right– I just read the first book in that series not too long ago.) Anyway, read it.
