Crystal Cove is book four in Lisa Kleypas’s contemporary romance series that each have a paranormal twist. Crystal Cove is perhaps the most paranormal of the series so far and Justine our heroine is a witch. We’ve met Justine before in books two and three of the series, in the books she had a biker boyfriend who she had broken up with in Crystal Cove. The previous three books have followed the love stories of the brothers and Crystal Cove breaks out from this opening the story to other characters…

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Time Untime UK

I am a really big fan of Kenyon’s writing and I have read nearly every on of her books. Her Dark-Hunter series hitting the top of that list. But I do find, that some books are amazing and some books are more middling. The non amazing books always disappoint because you know just how good Kenyon can be. And it’s not that the middling books are bad, they’re really not, they just don’t compare to some of her more awesome titles. Unfortunately, you can probably guess where this is going……


Lair of the Lion comes across as a retweak of a very popular french fairy tail, Beauty and the Beast. This was one of the reasons I was very interested to read Feehan’s spin on it. Instead of France however Lair of the Lion is based in Italy, with powerful Dons, and impressive, dark Castillios. Isabella Vernaducci is determined that The Don will help her rescue her brother, the last of her family, from the dungeons of a most hated enemy. After all, The Don is the most powerful man…

Bound by Night - Larissa Ione (UK)

I’ve been really enjoying Larissa Ione’s Lords of Deliverance series, and I really love her writing style, so when I heard that she was releasing a new series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the first book, Bound by Night. But did it live up to my very hight expectations? Yes it did. In fact, I think I enjoyed this more than the Lords of Deliverance. The story begins with a prologue where we meet our heroine, Nicole Martin, when she was a child. The…


REVIEW: Darkhouse by Karina Halle

Darkhouse - Karina Halle

Darkhouse is the first book in Karina Halle’s stunning Experiment in Terror series. The series was originally self published before being snapped up by traditional publishing imprint, Piatkus Entice, and therefore at the beginning Halle had to rely on word of mouth reviews to sell her books. Making Darkhouse free of charge was an excellent first step and this is how I found it, from a series of excellent reviews written by someone who had the same taste in books as me. It took me a while to read it, the original…
