Author
: Daniel Stashower
Reviewer: Mallory
Publisher: Titan Books
Genre:  M/F Mystery
ISBN 13: 9780380800575

 

Daniel Stashower’s Harry Houdini Mysteries are delightful cozies for readers who enjoy quiet but fast-paced mystery, delectable period detail, and excellent prose from an author who is deeply versed in the historical period he chooses. Mr. Stashower sets actual historic individuals into a setting of his own invention, rendering the locale, events, and persons as realistically as if they themselves stepped forward off the pages of history just … Continue reading

Red Haircrow – The Angel of Berlin

Author: Red Haircrow
Reviewer: Sean
Publisher: Flying With Red Haircrow
Genre: Gay Fiction
ISBN 13: 9781452441665

 

I wanted to like this story but I didn’t. I couldn’t stand the all too frequent exclamation points during the dialogue. Well, it was all Robin who did the talking in the story. It made it more difficult for me to connect to the story when Robin sounded like he was yelling or being hyper. At times I couldn’t tell the difference. It made me lose the sense … Continue reading

Ellie Heller – Ginny’s Capture


Author: Ellie Heller
Reviewer: Sean
Publisher: Noble Romance
Genre: Lesbian Horror/Romance
ISBN 13: 9781605922362

 

Another Lesbian vs. Zombie short story I’ve enjoyed. Dee found out Ginny is in trouble and she wants to save her from the zombies. She has to go back to the University she once swears she wouldn’t ever go back two years ago. Like a common reason, love conquers it all. The opening actually took me a while to figure out what was going on. I wished the author … Continue reading

Ashlynn Monroe – Eternal Commitments

Author: Ashlynn Monroe
Reviewed by: Lucy
Publisher: Romance First Publishing
Genre: M/F Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781465982452

 

Eternal Commitments is an anthology of three short stories by the same author, each focusing on an interaction between a human and a vampire. The stories are all very short, giving just the beginning chapter of each couple’s story.

The first, Eternal Commitments Part One and Part two, is my absolute favorite.  Separately, I think I’d have given this a 5 because it was different from the usual … Continue reading

Dakota Rebel – To Hate and To Hold

Author: Dakota Rebel
Reviewed by: Lucy
Publisher: Resplendence Publishing
Genre: M/M Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781906811945

 

The idea that the two vampires, Jamie and Ethan, end up in a marriage bond due to being struck by lightening was clever.  The pain they must endure being with someone they loathe (it’s a mutual hate fest) was interesting, especially in that they have been fighting and hating each other for years.   And they can only alleviate the discomfort of the bond by having sex just makes it hot. This … Continue reading

Cynthia Arsuaga – A Vampire in Paris

Author: Cynthia Arsuaga
Reviewed by: Aingeal
Publisher: Secret Cravings Publishing
Genre: M/F Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781618851789

 

This book was great!  The imagery and the blood lust rocked!!  😀  I like the portrayal of the types of vampires and only thought they lacked that “super-human” strength we all know them to have when Ramsey tried to rescue Julli the first time.  He did not use any tricks or muscle and fell short when battling with the human servants of the old vampire, Laurent.  I dug … Continue reading

This was so difficult to rate, because I absolutely loved Andre.   We meet him just after a stroke, when he is having severe language problems.  He is unable to say much more than yes, yes, no, no, but, shit for about half the book.  The  man doesn’t give up, he doesn’t feel sorry for himself and he’s just a conflicted, trying hard to get past this kind of guy.  … Continue reading

Edmond Manning – King Perry

Author: Edmond Manning
Reviewer: Don
Publisher:  Dreamspinner Press
Genre: M/M Contemporary Bittersweet
ISBN 13: 9781613723791

 

I could read Mr. Manning’s exquisite style of writing for hours on end and never tire of it.  He reminds me very much of Andrew Holleran with his soothing, almost lyrical way they both put thoughts into words.  I don’t know why this book  was classified as a bittersweet because the ending was a very happy one in my opinion.

Vin Vanbly is a quirky visitor to San Francisco … Continue reading
