Paranormal and Urban Fantasy – New and Old

Well, that whole reading challenge thing was good for something.  It got a bunch of books, mostly mystery and paranormals out of my to-be-read mountain of books and out the door.  I was also in a bunch of other swaps and had even more reading to do.  Alas, much of it was wasted on very average mysteries.  Not a fan of anthologies, I did find one I sincerely like and it’s coming out in mass market – Must Love Hellhounds.  I also found the first book of a new series which gets two thumbs up from me, Grave Witch plus and old favorite returns with his best book so far with Werewolf Smackdown.  So, here are some reviews recent reads.

  • Title: Grave Witch

  • Type:  Paranormal – UF; Alex Craft Book #1

Book Review: Three Erotic ebook Paranormal Romances, One Romantic Suspense, Ménage

Well, I FINALLY caught up with reading a paranormal from last month – I’d completely forgot about it – and I bought two full length menage novels from Siren, one short novel from Loose-Id.  I know, shame on me for letting things slip, but I do read stuff besides erotic romance, I just never get a chance to review it!  Having come off a binge of romantic suspense books, I’m having a bit of a time adjusting my expectations downward for the vast majority of erotic romance storylines, so two of these were very pleasant surprises.  There’s a bit of everything here, witches, angels, demons, and contemporary.  OK, so reality isn’t available in 3 of them, but hey, they’re paranormal!

  • Title: Rane’s Guardian
  • Author: Carmen Marie Aimer
  • Type:  Paranormal Romance
  • Genre: Witch – thwarted love and angsty male; suspense
  • Sub-genre: You deserve better than me
  • My Grade: C+ to B- (3.6*)
  • Rating: NC-17 to x
  • Length: Novella – about 39,000 words
  • Where Available: ebook at Cobblestone Press (more…)
