SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.

Following a drunken night together, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne takes off with no explanation, leaving Deziree Davanzati to wonder if they’d made a terrible mistake. Rather than obsess about it, Dez spends most of her time at Onyx, the rock club she owns and operates for the supernatural citizens of New York City. All are welcome-werewolves, witches, and anyone else willing to play nice while under her roof and pay their tab at the end of the night.

After two weeks of radio silence, Vegas returns with alarming news. For the first time in more than four centuries, there is reason to believe a pureblood demon is walking among them. They suspect someone from the the Council may be behind the creature’s return, but to what end?

With the Sentinel Stone missing, they’re down to the wire and don’t know who to trust. Will Dez and Vegas stop the demon in time? Or will Hell itself be unleashed upon the world?

REVIEW!! Claiming of a Sex Demon (The Sex Demon Trilogy) by Jaye Shields (@JayeShields, @TastyBookTours)

 

Excerpt from Amazon:

It’s not easy for a sex demon to find a wife, and it’s even harder when the perfect woman is already taken.Emmerie Winter has only been married a few months, but depression has made her a fragile stranger in the arms of her husband. She knows she should love him, but she doesn’t, and no matter how hard she tries, she can’t convince her heart otherwise.When a sex demon with a boyish grin and a sinful body arrives in town, Emmerie’s world is turned upside down. His intense passion for life sends her depression into hiding, but her feelings for the sinful male could get her in deep trouble.A sex demon needs climax to survive, but that’s never been a problem for Reza Aniron as women seem to be unable to resist his charms…all except for one, a timid, blonde angel who treats him with complete indifference. But in her eyes he can see a fire that’s just waiting to be released. And he always did love a challenge.

I don’t understand Emmerie and I will tell you that right off the bat.  The woman has a good, strong loving husband but is constantly in a state of depression.  I don’t get that.  Now that being said, I really did enjoy this book.  I read Claiming first instead of Confessions based on a friend’s advice.  I am glad I took it because I like reading prequel’s first. 🙂    Reza made the book for me.  There is just something sexy about a man that can bring a woman infinite delights in the bedroom and still knows his way around the kitchen.  I did like the fact that Emmerie felt she needed to be honest with Lennox (her husband) about her feelings before making love with Reza.  That tells me she does have character and I wonder if Ms. Shields is going to further develop that.  I also thought her brother seemed to be a strong man and would like to see more of him as well.

I have only recently expanded my paranormal reading to include things other then vampires, werewolves and witches.  I have to say the Sex Demons were the place to go.  I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read Confessions and Addictions (Feb 2013) to round out this awesome trilogy!

**I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.  I am not being compensated for my opinion.**

REVIEW!! Immortal Ever After (Argeneau Vampires) by Lynsay Sands (@LynsaySands, @avonbooks)

This was an ARC that I received for review. I have been wondering when Anders was going to get his own story and this did not disappoint!

EXCERPT FROM AMAZON!

A kiss doesn’t mean eternity . . .

Valerie Moyer doesn’t believe in vampires—until she is kidnapped by a fanged psychopath! After escaping her bloodthirsty captor, she’s through with creatures of the night. Until she finds herself under the protection of the darkly handsome Anders. Not only is she expected to accept that Anders is immortal, but also that she is the woman destined to be his life mate!

. . . Or does it?

Anders felt a connection to Valerie from the moment he cradled her bruised body in his arms. But before he claims her, he must destroy the vampire who almost stole her from him forever. His job would be easier if Valerie didn’t fight him every step of the way. Still, Anders loves a challenge, and the green-eyed beauty is worth fighting for!

Anders has been an Enforcer for many years and has watched his fellow Enforcers fall victim to life mates one by one. When an unusual 911 call comes in that the Enforcers respond to, Anders is amazed to find he has discovered his life mate.

Valerie has literally just escaped from the house of Hell. She had been kidnapped and held in a cage with several other women for almost 2 weeks. She managed to stab one of her captors and call 911. When she is talking to her rescuers she doesn’t know how to explain to them that she was attacked by a psycho vampire. There is no such as thing as vampires, right?

When she is taken back to Lucien and Leigh’s house for recovery she doesn’t question the kindness of the ones who rescued her and finds that she is quickly falling for the sexy Enforcer, Anders. When they all realize that she is Anders life mate they attempt to show her what he really is like and a very pregnant Leigh makes a great matchmaker!

I don’t want to give away too much of this story because I am an avid Lynsay Sands fan and don’t want to ruin the story for others.

Rated 4 Bookworms and can’t wait to add the paperback to my collection.

Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks (Love at Stake Series) @avonbooks

Excerpt from Amazon:

Handsome Howard . . .

Hunky Howard . . .

Hot Howard . . .

It’s not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels delicate, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she were a pot of honey he’d like to lick . . .

Howard is not like most men. For one thing, he’s a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp—and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive.

I just finished this book and I must say, WOW! I am so glad that Howard finally got his own story!

This book continues the Love at Stake series which is amazing and everyone needs to read. Howard is a were-bear who is the daytime guard for the Draganesti family. Shanna Draganesti discovers that Howard holds a secret fascination to a DIY builder named Elsa. I have to say that I love the whole reality TV Home Edition thing that Ms. Sparks is doing in this story!  Elsa and Howard are in for a whirlwind ride that includes curses, revenge and murder. What do you do when you realize that the person you love is forbidden to you because of an ancient curse?  Throw the chips in the air and let them land where they may! 

Take the time to read all the incredible stories in this series, you won’t be disappointed!

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire (Love at Stake series) by Kerrelyn Sparks (@KerrelynSparks, @avonbooks)

This is the first book in the Love at Stake series.  Roman Draganesti is a vampire and a scientific genius.  He is responsible for developing synthetic blood.  With its creation, he has been able to save millions of lives and develop bagged blood for vampires.  When one of his scientists creates a “real-life” blood bag made out of a sex doll, Roman thinks they may be onto something.  Once he bites into it and loses a fang, he realizes that it is not all it is cracked up to be.  What is a vampire supposed to do in the middle of the night with a broken fang?  Call a dentist of course!

Shanna Whelan is a dentist in hiding.  After having witnessed a Russian Mafia hit that killed her best friend, Shanna was put into witness protection.  However, she has a bigger problem to contend with.  How is she supposed to continue to be a doctor when the sight of blood causes her to pass out?

Roman shows up at Shanna’s 24 hour clinic just in time to save her from another hit and in return she fixes his fang before he has to spend eternity with a deformity.  By helping Shanna, Roman falls into a confrontation with his long-time vampire nemesis.  Shanna doesn’t understand what is going on at first and the feelings that Roman inspires are confusing.  Will she be able to overlook the stereotype to find the man that lies inside?

I have read all of the series and enjoy them more everytime I read them!

To Kill a Warlock (Book 1 of the Dulcie O’Neil Series) by H.P. Mallory (@HPMallory)

Dulcie O’Neil is a hard-working Fairy that wants to write a novel. Working in law enforcement as a Regulator (paranormal cop) Dulcie knows she has to save up so she can stop working to write her novel. I love how this started out as Dulcie being turned into a disgusting slime creature. It showed that she had a sarcastic side to her that resonates with me. Dulcie finds herself in a pickle when a warlock that specialized in the dark arts is killed. Having been the last one to see him alive, throws a kink into her life as a Regulator. When a mysterious stranger shows up and tells her he needs her help to solve some murders, Dulcie is sure that he is involved somehow. Dulcie has trust issues due to a previous relationship and I find it hysterical that she has all these luscious men lusting after her. Bram is by far my favorite, but that could be because I tend to lust after vampires. I hope we have more interaction with him in the rest of the series!

This story brings together creatures that we don’t normally see in paranormal books. We have demons, vampires, witches, a loki, gremlins and a hobgoblin. I can’t wait to see where H.P. Mallory takes me.

Tall, Dark & Hungry (Argeneau Novel) by Lynsay Sands (@Lynsay_Sands @avonbooks)

I really enjoyed reading Bastien and Terri’s story again. Bastien Argeneau is the go-to guy for the family. Whenever there is a problem or something needs to be taken care of, he is the one that gets called. It has been that way since his father died. He has been extra busy since his brother, Lucern, found his life mate and started planning his wedding. Terri is the bride, Kate’s, best friend and cousin and she is flying in from England two weeks early to surprise her and help with the wedding.

Staying in New York is not cheap so her cousin arranges for her to stay at Bastien’s penthouse apartment. No sooner does she arrive, then Kate has to leave to fly out to a writer’s conference due to an unfortunate incident with a toliet. Throw in a vampire playing Dracula, a curse on wedding plans and a vindictive bee and the laughs just don’t stop.

Terri has hangs up on relationships and it was lovely to watch her fall so hard for Bastien. Take the time to meet the Argeneau family. I am sure you will love them as much as I do!

Rated 4 stars

The Immortal Hunter by LynsaySands (@Lynsay_Sands)

Oh my goodness! I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love the Argeneau family and Lynsay’s series involving them.

The Immortal Hunter is the story of Decker Argeneau. All the man wants is a simple vacation and that is thrown out the door when he is asked to assist in catching a rogue vampire. Since that is his job as a Council Enforcer he is willing to assist. What starts off as a simple capture of a rogue turns into much more when the enforcers realize that a family member that turned rogue fifty years earlier is in the area. Attempting to catch Nicholas Argeneau becomes their new target. Nicholas has been watching a nest of rogue vampires and enlists Decker and Justin in his quest to free the two young women they have taken captive.

Dr. Dani McGill has no idea what is with the crazy men that have kidnapped her or her baby sister, Stephanie. She just knows that she has to keep them alive. When gunfire erupts and her sister is forced away by one of the kidnappers, Dani is convinced things have gone from bad to worse. How do you trust a man you know is lying to you even if he takes a bullet for you?

Finding a lifemate when you least expect it is a blessing and it is one that this Argeneau man is going to fight for even if he has to fight the one he loves.

Rated 4.5 stars

The Accidental Vampire (An Argeneau Novel) by Lynsay Sands (@LynsaySands, @avonbooks)

Welcome to the world of Port Henry! I am a huge Lynsay Sands fan and am seriously addicted to the Argeneau family. Elvi Black is the quentiessential newbie vamp. Having no idea how she was turned into a vampire on a vacation to Mexico with her best friend, Mabel, she has been trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Having watched the movie, Dracula, and becoming vampire experts, they are convinced they have Elvi’s new life figured out. They made arrangements for a coffin, Elvi sleeps during the day and takes the rules of the movie seriously. Fast forward five years and the entire town is working hard to help Elvi. Everyone donates to the local blood bank and they do everything they can for her. In return, Elvi attends all the town functions, bake sales and “performs” as the local town vampire at her restaurant, Bella Black’s.

Mabel and Teddy, the town sheriff, have taken it upon themselves to place a personal ad in the Toronto singles columns to find a mate for Elvi. They don’t want her to spend eternity alone. According to the laws of vampires, this is a big no-no and they send in Victor Argeneau, a vampire enforcer, to take stock of the rogue(Elvi) and report to the council.

Chaos ensues when several vampires that Victor knows shows up in response to the ad and it becomes obvious that someone is out to end Elvi’s immortal life. Between discovering his lifemate and trying to save her from the trouble she keeps running into, Victor has his hands full! I really enjoy the cast of characters in Port Henry and their obvious love and respect for Elvi.
