Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks
Vampire Mine - Kerrelyn Sparks

Loved the storyline and the hero. Connor has been dear to my heart from the start of the series. The way he has been dealing with Shanna's father - brilliant.
But Marielle and Connor fell in love too quickly and the heroine was all over the place. She was funny and sassy one moment and the next she was so innocent and sweet. I don't know how explain it - it just felt wrong. So, 3.5 stars.

The Unholy Grail
Be Mine Tonight - Kathryn Smith

 

Just as they all knew the legend of the Holy Grail, so had they heard of the Unholy Grail.

 

Pru has cancer and is looking for any way to negate her grim diagnosis, when she starts up a friendship with Marcus, they begin in earnest a search for the Holy Grail. Our hero is a 600yr old vampire who was once a knight of King Phillips of France who was also on the search for the Holy Grail. What Chapel and his group of mercenaries found instead was the Unholy Grail.

 

"You do not frighten me."

"I think I do, but not in the way I should."

 

This started off darkly intriguing with the French band of mercenaries and grail that turned them all into vampires. I read this with the anticipation of a danger filled dark and stormy search and chase, filled with villains coming out of the woodwork. Instead this turned out to be a character driven story with a slow burning romance between Pru and Chapel; read this for the romance, not the adventure.

 

The Silver Palm. Chapel had heard of them before in whispers and old texts. They named themselves for the silver that crossed the palm of Judas Iscariot— coin imbued with the essence of Lilith, mother of all vampires. The same silver that had been melted down to make the chalice from which he and the others had drunk.

 

The first half was all about the romance while the second gave us a peek into, what I imagine is the set-up between the villains and future heroes of the series. I was vastly curious about the Silver Palm villains but they only make a very brief appearance and other than their name, not much else is learned about them.

 

The Brotherhood of Blood.

 

Even though I was a little disappointed in the balance of romance and action in this one, the set-up of Chapel's friends, The Brotherhood of the Blood, being pitted against the Silver Palms is darkly intriguing. Don't get me wrong, I thought the vast majority of the romance was done well here, Pru is a tough, daring woman willing to fight for what she wants, while Chapel was a more lost in his self-loathing for what he was, but they did have a connection that was felt. I thought the ending was needlessly dragged out angst as a sudden change of heart by Chapel gave us a quick perfect bow ending. I'm going to read the next in the series because, like I said, I'm intrigued by the set-up but I'm going to hope the continuing plot thread plays more heavily.

 

He smiled— just for her. Every woman should know the joy of having a man be joyful just for her presence.

Be Mine Tonight - Kathryn Smith

 

Templars. It was said that the knights had in their possession various holy relics, including items believed to have belonged to Christ Himself.

 

The heroine searching for the Holy Grail hoping it will cure her illness, the hero drank from the Unholy Grail and has been cursed for 600yrs. 

 

When I was looking for books in my tbr for this, I can't even describe how giddy I was when I read "Unholy Grail". 

 

So far has started off deliciously dark and stormy atmospheric.

Wish You Were Mine by Tara Sivec $1.99
Wish You Were Mine - Tara Sivec
Five years. I would've stayed away longer if I hadn't received the letter. Not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about her, haven't missed her smile, haven't wished that things were different.
 
The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn't be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn't stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him.
 
But now that I am back, things are different. I'm not going to stand by and watch the woman I've always loved slip away again. I'm done living my life with regrets and I'm ready to tell her the truth. And I'll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.
