Vampires, Werewolves and Ghouls, oh my. We are not in Kansas anymore, Toto.

 

I had great hopes for this book and while it was a quick read it just kind of fell short. We first meet Roderick, Sire to Piers, who is his vampire partner. Then throw in Linden, who is a ghoul and also happens to be Piers’ blood slave.  Add in a werewolf name Helmut.  Stir, … Continue reading

Sax Rohmer – The Return of Dr. Fu Manchu

Words almost fail me to describe the sheer lyrical delight of reading Sax Rohmer’s wonderful Fu Manchu series. Were I banished to a desert island for life, with only a lantern to read by, and told I would be limited to the Fu Manchu Mysteries, gladly  I would go (until I wore the pages loose from constant rereading). Mr. Rohmer had an inimitable, unsurpassable literary … Continue reading

Commitment-phobe Nick has a hook up with Damian and after a night of great sex, doesn’t expect to ever see him again, however, Damian will not be denied. He turns out to be a vampire who believes that Nick is his mate and will do everything and anything to keep him. The story is told from Nick’s point of view and is rather scattered and convoluted in plot. It is not a … Continue reading

This is one of those stories that, while it is short, is the perfect length. It is sweet, funny and most of all, it’s romantic. Michael’s daughter, Amber, is digging around in the attic and comes down with, yep, the pink stiletto. The sight of it sends Michael down memory lane, to his first love, who was his first kiss, who he gave his virginity too, on a prom night … Continue reading

I enjoyed this story very much. Both MC’s were fantastic and I really loved the fact that even though Luke was the smaller of the two he was really the stronger character. Even though both MC’s aren’t gay to begin with,  you would never know it considering the instant physical attraction they had to each other. Their acceptance of having a male mate is rather angst free and they act upon … Continue reading

I liked Cody’s Revelation even more than I liked Luke’s Surprise. I feel the story is solid and Lavinia’s writing had me so hooked  I read this in one sitting. Even though this is technically a series book, the timeline is the same as in Luke’s Surprise and I have to say that it was refreshing to read a series that way. One thing that I would personally like to praise … Continue reading

This book was like watching the movie Full Metal Jacket to me. The first half is ENTIRELY different than the second half. It was like two separate books spliced together. The first half of this book is utter fluff with the entire focus being on sex, sex and more sex.

The second half of the this book delved into some very serious issues, including a couple of rapes and  the massive grief … Continue reading

Sax Rohmer has been called “the true king of the pulp mystery” (James Rollins) and in my personal view, Rohmer is pulp’s crowning achievement (and achiever). As a child in the 1950’s and 60’s, I loved his Fu-Manchu mysteries, and I love them still on rereading after many decades. They seem fresh and new, and still gloriously written, plotted, and characterized. Titan Books has done the literate … Continue reading
