Two August Samhain Releases: Paranormal and Romantic Suspense/Urban Fantasy

You mention Samhain and mostly readers immediately think, “Oh, smut.”  Or the more PC term, ‘romantica’.  Regardless, Samhain publishes a lots of mainstream romance,  paranormal romance, and romantic suspense, something often overlooked.  The two books I read this week were both in the mainstream class, though Isaiah’s Haven was steamy paranormal romance, Behind Blue Eyes was classic  romantic suspense with a paranormal twist bordering on urban fantasy.  Both were very good reads.

  • Title: Isaiah’s Haven
  • Author:  N. J. Walters
  • Type:  Paranormal steamy romance
  • Genre: Werewolves and hunters in Chicago; Legacy Series 2
  • Sub-genre:  Loner werewolf finds mate and her family
  • My Grade: B-  (3.7*)
  • Rating:  PG-13 to NC-17
  • Length and price:  Full novel about 80,000 words ebook for $5.50 discounts available
  • Where Available:  book available at Samhain book store online
