Things are finally looking up for Madison. After years of scraping just to get by she lands her dream job and finally has a decent down payment for a house so she can move her brother and sister into a real home. It's too bad nothing ever goes the way it's supposed to. When the mother that abandoned them years ago suddenly shows up and moves them to New Hampshire Madison has no choice but to go or lose her brother and sister. Shoving her dreams aside yet again, Madison tries to make things work. It's really cold, her fifteen year old sister acts like a hooker in training, men act funny around her, her boss is a real jerk, she feels like an outsider, her best friend turns out to be a sixteen year old punk, and the incredibly handsome guy renting the room adjoining hers not only hogs the bathroom, taking three showers a day leaving her with cold water, but he also has a secret. A secret that she becomes a bit obsessed with and can't let go no matter how many times she's warned off.
Detective Ephraim Williams learned long ago not to show any emotion or allow himself to get attached to humans. What was the point? They came and went and he remained. This time wouldn't be any different or so he thought. When his landlady told him her grandchildren were moving in he didn't expect much, well other than to be left alone. What he didn't expect was to have to fight bloodlust every time he so much as caught a whiff of his delectable neighbor's scent or her bombarding him with questions every time she cornered him.
If that's not bad enough a Master from his past has found him once again and is demanding his blood and is willing to do anything to get it, even using the exasperating neighbor that makes him feel more than pain for the first time in centuries.

The heroine is a very bad case of Mary Sue. She is so good, cares for her siblings, is smart and unearthly beautiful. Other females in the book so far (basically her mother and 15-year old sister and all the girls in her classes as she teaches history at the high school) are mean and jealous and ove...
Okay so I'm not going to rate this because I think this book deserves a higher rating than what I would give it. I rate based on my enjoyment NOT on the books worthwhile-ness. I think there are two types of paranormal romance: paranormal novels with a romance twist (for example: [b:Dragon Bound|963...
Tall, Dark & Lonely is book one in R.L. Mathewson’s Pyte/Sentinel series. I loved this author’s Neighbors from Hell series and have been meaning to give this series a go. I am so glad that I took the plunge. While this is definitely not an overly complicated paranormal world that Ms. Mathewson has c...
This author is probably one of my faves :-) This story, though not very unique was very well done! Madison was truly an inspirational, strong female lead. Though she may not be a literal fighter, she figuratively fights all her battles and obstacles in her way. With a deadbeat mom, Madison takes car...
