Amanda J. Greene - Caressed by Night

Title : Caressed by Night
Series : Rulers of Darkness # 2
Release date : February 29, 2012
Genre : Paranormal Romance

Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

Caressed by Night by Amanda Greene is the second novel in the Rulers of Darkness Series and I have to say it’s another fabulous book. It’s a little different from the first novel, because while Caressed by Moonlight was set the 1800’s, this novel was set in the modern day; but it definitely had the same vibe.

The main characters Dimitri Arsov and Kerstyn Ingmar are an amazing couple. Dimitri is one of the first vampires ever made and was thought dead for centuries. Betrayed by his second in command, he had to find a way to reclaim his throne and deal with this traitor. After waiting centuries to sets his trap, he meets beautiful Kerstyn Ingmar and realizes she is the mate he has been waiting for. He knows this will complicate things, but he cannot ignore his destiny.

Dimitri is definitely one of the most powerful vampires alive, but he keeps his powers to himself. I love that about a man, yes he is powerful but doesn’t show it unless when it’s absolutely needed. The way he show Kerstyn what he is and how he feels about him is so amazing. Kerstyn in just the right heroine for him, she is smart, curious and definitely not afraid of him. She accepts him just the way he is and nothing less.

I love the fact that we saw Dorian, Victoria and Falcon back from the first novel. Those three stole my heart from the first moment and it’s good to see how they doing. I have to say that I see some potential characters who deserve their own book; Silvie who’s Kerstyn best friend and also a witch. Gabriel, who’s an outcaste vampire but has a heart of gold, Gannon and of course Hadrian who’s another ruler and finally decided to take matters into his own hands and start living again.

Miss Greene has written another amazing novel with great characters, fabulous storyline and a great world setting. It made me want to be a part of a world, where no normal living being wants to live in.

I cannot wait to see who’s going to be in the next novel, I have my wishes; now let’s hope they will come true.

I was given this book to read in exchange of a honest review from the author Amanda Greene.

RaeAnne Thayne - A Cold Creek Reunion

Title : A Cold Creek Reunion
Release date : March 20, 2012
Publisher : Harlequin
Genre : Contemporary Romance

He was the one you called when you needed rescuing?

But who was Taft Bowman going to call when he needed help? Because ten years ago Laura Pendleton, the love of his life, had left town without a word, then or since. Now she was back, with a new last name - and two adorable, high-needs little ones in tow. Well, Taft had been stupid enough to let her go once before - he wasn't about to make the same mistake again. He'd never stopped loving her - and one look at those adorable little faces and he knew that he was meant to be with Laura and her kids forever. All he had to do was convince her that this time he was a man she could count on!

A Cold Creek Reunion by Raeanne Thayne is the first novel I’ve read of this author. I have to say this story was an enjoyable reading for me.

Taft Bowman is chief of the fire department, while his twin brother Trace is the chief of the police department. Taft was engaged ten years ago with this high school sweetheart Laura Pendleton, but a week before their wedding she broke the engagement and left town. Now Laura is back with her two children and Taft is trying real hard to stay away from them. But he knows this will be impossible, because his feelings for Laura are still there.

Laura Pendleton was broken when she had to call off the wedding years ago, but she didn’t have any choice since Taft wouldn’t postpone their wedding and take care of himself first. Now she is back in town with her two children and wants to start over, that means stay away from Taft. But it seems harder to do when her children decide to adopt Taft in their lives.

Raeanne Thayne has written a great entertaining novel, where you see how two soul mates find each other again after years. I love the fact that Taft accept Laura’s children from the start ad didn’t tread them differently because they were from another man in Laura’s life. But I have to be honest that I thought this novel was a little too soft for me, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t good, I just prefer a little more action and romance in a book.

Luna Zega - Southern Seduction

Title : Southern Seduction
Release date : January 2012
Publisher : The Wildrose Press
Genre : Contemporary Erotica

Ramona Squires fell in the love with Ross Spears the first day she saw him in the second grade. Twenty-two years later when his truck breaks down in front of her house, she discovers that her crush wasn't unrequited. Neither had the guts to reveal their true feelings when they were teenagers. After years of wild, erotic wet dreams, will reality live up to the fantasy? Or will it be better

Southern Seduction by Luna Zega is a very short erotica story, but it was definitely enjoyable.

The main characters Ross Spears and Romana Squires are a perfect match. She has had a thing for Ross since second grade, but never had the guts to step up to him and show him how she felt. Since Ross never showed any interest in her, she left it at that.

Now after all those years Ross in back in town and the attraction towards him is still there. When Romana discovers that Ross has had the hots for all along, it’s time to act on those feelings and enjoy each other’s company.

Southern Seduction was well written with some very steamy erotica scenes. The attraction between the main characters was huge; you could definitely feel the fire between them.

I did have the feeling that some parts of the book were a little rushed to tell the story, but I enjoyed reading it. So if you are in the mood for a good short hot read, then this is definitely the right novella for you

Marie Kenward - Dark Secrets

Title : Dark Secrets
Series : The macCumail Bloodlines # 3
Release date : March 5, 2012
Publisher : Black Rose
Genre : Paranormal Romance

Sometimes truth requires treachery...

Impressed into the Roman army, vampire Vasilios of Sparta learned to lie, fight, and kill in order to survive. He also learned loyalty and valor. These lessons serve him well for eighteen centuries until he's banished from his clan and betrayed by the leader he called friend.

An immortal without a cause.

A chance encounter brings FBI Agent Anne Mathews into his life. The obstinate redhead is on a mission to save her sister. Without Vasilios' help, Anne will never find her, let alone survive. But when an old enemy resurfaces, Vasilios leads Anne into battle to settle a score of his own.

Hell-bent on winning at any cost, Anne is no damsel in distress. It's a game of good vs. evil. And as Vasillios' passion for her grows, he'll be forced to choose between honor and the only woman to ever claim his heart.

Dark Secrets by Marie Kenward is the third novel in her macCumail Bloodlines Series and I loved it. After reading the previous two novels in the series I already became a huge fan of Miss Kenward. With this third novel she made it on my favorite authors list. It’s another book that I wasn’t able to put down for long; I had to read it within a short period to see how it all ended.

The main characters, Vasilios and Anne are a perfect match. He has been banished from his clan by his leader and best friend for four years and he has no intention to go back. But when he discovers a conspiracy against his best friend Mikhail and his human fiancée Emily, he knows he has to warn them. Anne is a young determined FBI agent. She has an agenda of her own when she meets Vasilios, because she has to save her sister from this evil vampire. If that means she has to use Vasilios in every way, then so be it.

What I love about this author is the way she lures readers into this amazing world. This novel had all the right tools to make it successful; great characters, fabulous storyline, true friendship and loyalty between the vampire “brothers”.

The relationship between Vasilios and Anne has a rough start, Anne fights him with everything she got and I have to say I cannot blame her. The first vampire she meets attacks her, but slowly she loses her heart to powerful Vasillios.

Marie Kenward has done it again and has written another amazing novel in this great series. I already said it before; this is definitely one of my favorite series of this year. I cannot wait to see who’s going to be next, because this series cannot be done.
