Release Day Review! Midnight Bite by Cynthia Eden!

 

Today is release day for Cynthia Eden's newest paranormal romance - Midnight Bite & I have a spotlight and 5 Star review for you to enjoy!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

A kiss on New Year's Eve is supposed to be lucky...but a vampire bite? That's not exactly something a woman dreams of getting. And when Lark Kinsley gets bit, all bets are off. She stakes her date, runs into the night, and tries to put the whole nightmare behind her.

 

Only she can't.

 

Because she immediately runs into trouble—trouble in the form of a tall, dark, and deadly sexy vampire prince named Devereaux. He claims that he's there to help her, but she's not buying his story. The guy is no Prince Charming. After all, Prince Charming isn't supposed to come with fangs and an appetite for blood. But Devereaux says that he's been waiting centuries for her. That she is meant to rule with him. Obviously, he's wrong. And possibly insane. She's not meant to be the queen of the vamps. No matter what Devereaux says.

 

But he's not the only one after her. Paranormal monsters are coming out of the woodwork. And the bite that she got? It's making her feel strange. Hungry. Her self-control is shredding, and Lark knows she's changing. She just doesn't know what she'll become.

 

The new year won't go out with a bang...it will end with a bite.

Author’s note: Hey paranormal romance fans! MIDNIGHT BITE is a sexy vamp novella—expect danger, expect hot times, and expect naughty language as you ring in the new year. Let’s celebrate with some undead style!

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


Midnight Bite is the perfect blend in a quick story, it has lots of hot passion, sizzling romance, and edge of your seat danger. The characters are strong and convincing which really pulls readers into their story and this fast paced plot takes over from there and holds them hostage.

With an intriguing plot, secrets being revealed and surprising twist keeping the characters in turmoil, readers find that they have to read every last page of this thrilling holiday story.

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.

 

No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays. Those visiting the world for the first time will understand why Chicago Tribune called it “simply superb.”

“Don’t you want to go see Santa Claws?” Errata Jones asked in her husky, teasing voice.

 

“Meh,” Perry Baker replied, still grumpy at the prospect of crowds and gift-giving decisions. Plus, it was cold, gray, and rainy—a typical December day in the Pacific Northwest.

 

“Where’s your boundless holiday spirit?” She turned into the parking lot outside the Fairview Sports and Recreation Center. It was the final day of the Yuletide Holiday Market, an arts and crafts event by and for the local supernatural community. “Counting today, there’s only three shopping days till Christmas.”

 

“I really hope you’re not going to make me sit on Santa’s knee.”

 

“I don’t think so, darling. That would be weird, even for us.”

 

Errata swung her Jaguar coupe into the last parking space, beating out a massive pickup by a whisker. The truck made a sound like a startled dinosaur as it lurched to a stop on the frosty pavement. Turning off the Jaguar’s ignition, Errata smoothed her chin-length, jet-black hair, then glanced in the rear-view mirror, looking pleased with herself. Perry twisted in his seat to see the pickup driver turn a Christmassy scarlet and lurch off.

 

 

Perry willed his heart to resume its normal rhythm. Errata was a werecougar, and there were reasons cats shouldn’t drive. Werewolves like him were another matter.

Wolves appreciated order, including stop signs. Cats did things because they could—like pester him into going to this stupid craft fair.

 

That’s what he got for befriending a feline. He cast her a sidelong look, taking in her high cheekbones and smooth, golden skin. It was all he could do not to reach over and stroke her hair, but that would be crossing a boundary. She’d made it clear from the start that cats walked alone.

 

Errata finished preening and gave him an arch look. “Shouldn’t you be shopping for your human, what’s-her-name?”

 

Perry released his seatbelt. “Her name is Tiffani. With an i.”

 

“Tiffani. Of course it is.” Errata patted his cheek with a pitying look. “Come on. First fifty guests get a goodie bag.”

 

“She’s fun,” Perry said, sounding defensive even to himself.

 

“Humans generally are,” she said agreeably. “You should buy her something really nice.”

 

 

“Men don’t shop before December 23rd,” he protested as he got out of the car.

 

“Friends don’t let friends give their sweethearts, even ones named Tiffani with an i, gift cards.”

 

“But gift cards make sense.”

 

Errata flung the end of her scarf over her shoulder with a flick of one gloved hand. “Be grateful you have me to watch over you.” She clicked the locks and swept toward the entrance of the building, leaving Perry to catch up.

 

“Cats,” he grumbled. “What do you want for Yule?”

 

“Not a gift card.”

10 Holiday Gifts for Your Supernatural Friends

 

 

Christmas shopping can be challenging at the best of times, but the non-humans on the list can present special problems. Need ideas for what to get the vampire with centuries of clutter in his garage or the mermaid who needs everything waterproofed? Here are some suggestions from our retail experts:

 

1. Get that vampire a month’s rental on a storage locker big enough to house his spare coffin collection!


2. For the shifters we suggest many, many lint rollers or a rechargeable hand vacuum!


3. For the fussy feline shifters, how about modern art that doubles as a scratching post?


4. As a stocking stuffer, nothing beats fake human teeth for the vampires!


5. A definite must have: non-toxic chew toys for the werepuppies.


6. Environmentally friendly dry cleaning options for the mummies on your list.


7. Steaks


8. Stakes


9. A personal crossroad for that special demon. Top seller: something on Route 666.

 

10. High-strength spray adhesive is a thoughtful present for those zombies who just can’t keep it together.

 

Just remember, whatever you choose, it’s the thought that counts—or possibly the deliciously fresh brains that just manufactured that thought …

Early Review! Gifted (The Dark Forgotten #4.5) Sharon Ashwood!

 

Who says the holiday season is just for humans?

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.


No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays.

 


No matter who – or what – you are, this Dark Forgotten holiday special is heartwarming and thrilling! As the strong, vivid characters prepare for the holidays while dealing with a demonic threat. Lots of holiday cheer, and sweet romance entertains readers while spine chilling suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seat. The idea of something good coming out something demonic inspires readers as a variety of characters discover holiday miracles make everything worthwhile even having to banish a sparkly demonic threat and battling holiday crowds. Readers can’t help but enjoy this fresh perspective of fanged and furry, magical and innocent characters take on the holidays while also getting to catch up on the lives of all the Dark Forgotten characters.

Review! Ravenous (The Dark Forgotten #1) Sharon Ashwood!

 

 

One kiss is all it takes to lose your soul…Holly Carver is a small-time witch who busts ghosts for tuition money, but ends up wrangling a demon when a haunted house job goes bad. Her Undead business associate, Alessandro Caravelli, suspects the demon is somebody’s not-so-secret weapon. The supernatural community is at war, and Holly’s unpredictable magic holds the key to hell’s doorway. Soon Holly is on everyone’s “must have” list, and not in a good way.


Alessandro wants her for more than magic. A lover with six centuries of experience, the vampire is walking seduction, but he’s also a predator. Every moment he spends guarding Holly, every second he spends falling under her witch’s spell, he becomes more and more of a threat himself. As Holly’s sharp-tongued grandma warns her: vampires are like a box of rich chocolate—they seem so tempting, but over-indulgence is a killer…


Second edition. Previously published in 2009 by Signet Eclipse

 

 


One kiss is all it takes to lose your soul… in this thrilling paranormal world. Holly who is a small town witch and Alessandro, her vampire partner, are two solid and captivating characters that grab readers’ attention from the beginning and refuse to let go. Their relationship is full of turmoil both emotional and physical with sizzling chemistry as they fight their attraction while Alessandro tries to keep Holly safe from everyone that wants a piece of her. The romance between Holly and Alessandro is intense and one that dreams are made of as they discover that maybe their differences aren’t so far apart as they thought and just maybe a witch and a vampire can have a happily ever after.

 

The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers glued to the pages with lots of thrilling events full of danger and suspense as the supernatural community faces a war brought on by quite a few characters all with different plans in mind and surprising twists keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next. The author brought her well-developed and fascinating world to vivid life with well written words that makes it easy for the readers to picture each and every scene while using some unique and fascinating elements to make the story a bit different from others and I am certainly looking forward to reading more of this mesmerizing series.

Review: Must Love Hellhounds (Guild Hunter #0.5, Kate Daniels #3.5, & The Guardians #5.5) by Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews & Meljean Brook
Must Love Hellhounds - Charlaine Harris,Ilona Andrews,Nalini Singh, Meljean Brook

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Must Love Hellhounds 

 Guild Hunter #0.5, Kate Daniels #3.5, & The Guardians #5.5  
Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews & Meljean Brook  
 Urban Fantasy - Paranormal Romance  
 Berkley  
 September 1st 2009  
 eBook/Paperback  
 361  
 Library  
 

 

From New York Times bestselling authors Charlaine Harris and Nalini Singh and national bestselling authors Ilona Andrews and Meljean Brook, tales of man’s worst friend...

 

In these hound-eat-hound worlds, anything goes… and everything bites. 

 

Follow paranormal bodyguards Clovache and Batanya into Lucifer’s realm, where they encounter his fearsome four-legged pets, in Charlaine Harris’s The Britlingens Go to Hell. Seek out a traitor in the midst of a guild of non-lethal vampire trackers, one that intends to eradicate the entire species of bloodsuckers, in Nalini Singh’s Angels’ Judgment. Find out why the giant three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades has left the underworld for the real world—and whose scent he’s following—in Ilona Andrews’s Magic Mourns. Embark on a perilous search for the kidnapped niece of a powerful vampire alongside her blind—and damn sexy—companion and a hellhound in Meljean Brook’s Blind Spot. 

 

These four novellas by today’s hottest paranormal authors will have hellhound lovers everywhere howling.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Kobo

Book Depository

 

 

Must Love Hellhounds was interesting and each novella featured a hellhound in someway. I have previously read Angel’s Judgement in Angels’ Flight and I re-read Magic Mourns. The Britlingens Go to Hell and Blind Spot where new novellas for me.

 

I like to pick up these type of books from the library. They give you a chance to try new authors and find new series to read. I enjoyed this anthology.

 

The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris – Rated: 3 Stars

 

I enjoyed this story, but I felt like I was missing something. I don’t think The Britlingens Go to Hell is part of a series and I felt like it needed to be. It was a little weird; especially since we don’t get enough backstory or world building. Their is a lot of action and no romance or sex in this novella. As for the hellhounds they play a minor role. I enjoyed them, but wish they played a bigger role and helped the little group in other ways.

 

Over all The Britlingens Go to Hell was enjoyable to read. 

 

 

Angels’ Judgement (Guild Hunter #0.5) by Nalini Singh – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Read as part of Angels’ Flight

 

This one we get Sara Haziz’s story. She is a human-born Guild Hunter who later becomes the Guild Director for America. Before she becomes the Director she is sent on a mission and tested by the Archangel’s – The Cadre. But, she’s not alone. Yummy, Deacon is at her side. He’s their to offer protection and to help Sarah on her mission.

 

It’s action-packed and gritty. I loved every moment of it. They are hunting one of their own, a Guild Hunter who may or may not have gone off the deep end. Sarah uses her mind along with her crossbow to her advantage. Deacon was amazing. He does his job well, but he can also be light and funny. The chemistry was off the charts with these two and those love scenes, steamy.

 

Angels’ Judgement was a treat. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Deacon become lovers. This novella was perfect. Their is action, danger, blood, and romance.

 

 

Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Previously read as a single title

 

I re-read Magic Mourns. I just LOVE the Kate Daniels series.

 

Magic Mourns can be read as a standalone title or part of the series. The Andrews team does a fabulous job giving you all the pertinent information about the world that you need to enjoy this novella.

 

Andrea Nash, works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid and she’s also a Beastkin, but that’s a secret only a few know about. She’s a kick-ass women who loves her guns. I love Andrea. She is such a wonderful character and a great friend to Kate Daniels.

 

Raphael is a werehyena and bouda to the hyena clan. He’s been trying for 6 months to get Andrea to give him a try.

 

We are treated to Andra’s POV. Where this novella starts Andrea is filling in for Kate who’s on medical leave. A call comes in about a big dog chasing a shapeshifter and so she goes out to investigate. What she finds is Raphael being chased by “the coolest thing ever, a twenty foot tall three headed dog.”

 

It’s was nice to see Andrea loosen up a bit. It was also nice to see Raphael not give up and wear her down. These two have such a fun flirtatious banter between them in this novella and their romance explodes once they give into their desires and decide it’s ok to give a relationship a try.

 

This story is full of action, world building, mystery, mythology, and exciting characters. The world they live in is an uncertain one and Magic comes and goes as it pleases. 

 

Magic Mourns is a fabulous read.

 

 

Blind Spot (The Guardians #5.5) by Meljean Brook – Rated: 4 Stars

 

I’ve only read one other novella in this series and have yet to try out The Guardians series.

 

Blind Spot features Maggie as she tracks Colin’s, (her employer), kidnapped niece and retrieves Blake, Colin’s nephew. I found Blake aka Geoff interesting. He’s blind, but with a special ability. Maggie is pretty kick-ass. These two ended up working together and in the process start to develop a more then working relationship.

 

The hellhound, Sir Pup, was a great addition. He doesn’t talk, but you can tell by his actions he understands whats going on and has a sense of humor. I found him to be enjoyable.

 

The world is interesting and has peeked my interesting in checking out the series. Blind Spot was an enjoyable novella.

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!
