Rowan is a smart a$$ with an uneventful life. She meets the sexy, yummy and mysterious Gabriel and she wants him. This two light up the pages with sparks. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline, but it’s written in first person. Ms. Smith has a creative imagination and I would read any book of hers that isn’t writing in this style. I give this tale a score of 1 finger up and 4 toes. NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

Book Review: Sai Marie Johnson’s The Dark Priesthood: The Confessions of Malevolence

The Dark Priesthood: The Confessions of Malevolence was my introduction to Sai Marie Johnson’s works. Now this one falls more into the Paranormal/Erotica genres (I would liken it to maybe Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty Trilogy or Poppy Z. Brite). It tells the story of a young girl in 18th Century New Orleans who, one night, has a rather unwelcomed (or maybe welcomed, however you want to see it:) ) visitor. She finds herself placed in position of queen in the Malevolent Order and 200 years later, she finds herself being under threat of being overthrown by her sister and her son (of course, all in the midst of some very intense extracirriculars…it is erotica, after all). As far as this one goes, I started to enjoy this alot more once I passed the beginning. Not that the beginning wasn’t enjoyable, but (and this is just a personal thing, you can…

Argeneau 10-Year Anniversary: ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE, My Fave Couple, Quiz, Giveaway!

It’s hard for me  to believe that this series is ten years old partly because I just discovered it in 2008 or so, and partly because I think Lynsay keeps it remarkably fresh.  When Avon asked if I wanted to participate in this celebration I leaped at the chance, and had a hard time choosing which couple in the series were my favorite.  Honestly I could make a case for any of them, and with my short attention span it’s usually the last book I read that I love best! But, UNDER A VAMPIRE MOON (My Review) has a special charm for me because it came out as my husband and I were planning our 30th wedding anniversary.  Lynsay’s story was so captivating and the setting of St. Lucia so very romantic that we seriously considered taking a trip there for our special event.  When Vampires Go On Vacation ….
