Mini Review: Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Product Description

Kate Daniels cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to deal with-especially if they involve Atlanta's shapeshifting community.

And now there's a new player in town-a foe that may be too much for even Kate and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, to handle. Because this time, Kate will be taking on family.

Loved it. Finally Kate & Curran. All I can say about that is Dayumn it took the girl long enough. We also learn more about Kate, her family, Curran, and pack politics. I wanted to crawl into this book and kick some folks butts myself.  I am dying to read the next one. Hum wondering how I can get a copy of that one. I wonder it bribery would work lol.

I bought this one myself and received no compensation for this review. I am giving this one 5 stars. And yep I think it was that good.

Review: Taken by Midnight by Lara Adrian

Product Description


In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes are taking place within her, as she struggles to understand—and control—a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the Boston compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose very existence is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps the most mysterious of them all is Brock, a brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands hold the power to comfort, heal . . . and arouse.

As she recovers under Brock’s care, Jenna finds herself drawn to the Order’s mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of assassins from subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite of their resolve, a purely physical relationship without strings soon binds Brock and Jenna together with a desire fiercer than life and stronger than death itself—until a secret from Brock’s past and Jenna’s own mortality challenges their forbidden love to the ultimate trial by fire.

This book is hard to review without giving away all the secrets of the book. I can say that Jenna is one of the strongest heroines I've ever read. Her life has been one bomb dropped on her after another. But she takes it and comes out fighting. I hope that if I had to face the adversities that she has I would face them with the grace and courage she shows. And Brock sheesh fanning myself. Brock is so protective and tender with her that you root for them from the beginning. What with whatever the ancient did to Jenna and with Brock's secret resurfacing they have more than their share of things that could separate them but only the simplest thing to keep them together. If you could call love simple that is. My only thing about this book is that it left plenty of questions unanswered. Almost but not quite too many cause I am a impatient sort of woman. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.

I bought this one on my own and was not compensated in any way for this review. I give it 4 1/2 stars.

Mini Revew: Insatiable by Lauren Dane

Desire is the most dangerous sensation of all.

With tensions between the Federation and Imperial `Verses rising, one woman may hold the key to victory. The dangerous mission to smuggle her out of Imperial Territory falls to Daniel Haws and his team, the ultra secret Phantom Corps. This elite squad of the Federation Military is the only one trusted and skilled enough to remove her from under the watchful eye of her father, the Supreme Commander of the Imperial `Verses.

Carina is used to wearing a mask. Her father and his men think her little more than a pretty prize to be won by a man more ruthless than the rest. When he announces his intention to marry her to one of his henchmen, a man known for his cruelty, Carina knows she has to move as soon as possible to get out. But getting secret information to the Federation has served her well for years and she appeals to them for help.

She expected rescue from a man who'd been her enemy. But she wasn't prepared for just how intense her attraction to Daniel Haws would be. Born as adversaries into different ranks, and on the run for their lives, they now need each other to survive-by holding on to the only thing they have in common: a growing desire that is dangerous, irresistible, and insatiable...

As always Lauren rocks my world with her books. I absolutely adore her Federation series. Scifi, feisty heroines, and sexy heroes what more could a girl ask.  This book is the best of the bunch. If you read this series and have been wanting more Daniel. This book is for you. Go run read this series cause you want be disappointed. I can't wait for the next one.

I bought this one and rate it 4 1/2 stars.

Review: Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch

Touched by an Alien

By Gini Koch

(DAW, Mass Market Paperback, 9780756406004, 400pp.)
Publication Date: April 6, 2010
Categories: Science Fiction - General


How can a sexy marketing manager join forces with an Alpha Centauri male in Armani to save the planet-using hairspray, a Mont Blanc pen, and rock n' roll?


She's Touched by an Alien

Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down.

In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.

I love this book. It is totally my kind of book. Out there literally and little off center. I am always on the lookout for a good scifi romance and this one fit the bill just nicely. Kitty was a fantastic heroine. She smart, funny, and can improvise with the best of them. And I would love to have her parents for my own. Now Jeff was the only fly in the ointment. For such a supposedly super smart alien he was kind of dumb. That irked me a little since I like sexy smart heroes lol. But much of what he and the other aliens missed could be because they don't interact with humans very much. I am hoping that'll change as the series progresses.

All in I give this book a very solid 4 stars and I bought and paid for it all by my lonesome.
