I'd spent my whole life settling, trying not to attract attention, and generally doing whatever it took to keep other people happy. I didn't want to do that again. Not when I was finally comfortable in my own skin. Sure, there were certain challenges, like a drug lord who wanted me dead, and the fact that I owed a demon a debt that he could call due at any moment. But everybody's got problems, right?

I always hate it when things like that happen. It's like forcing two characters together so that we don...
Wanted more Chance, Chuch, Eva, Jesse, Shannon, Butch and the second-hand shop in Mexico; less Kel and pointless tramping through the Peruvian jungle so Corine could "prove" herself to Escobar (a rival drug cartel jefe).
Shady Lady is a book that shows tremendous growth in the Corinne Solomon series. Ann Aguirre has this amazing ability to dream up and write extremely unique characters and place the setting of her stories in places that come alive on the pages of her book. The first two books in this series create...
After completely reversing the ending of HELL FIRE in my head, SHADY LADY was a revelation. Aguirre seems to be trying any number of leading men on for size... and it's working, man. Kel was delicious, though I'm not sure how believable the "new and improved" Corine was.
