Ghostwalkers by Christine Feehan

My favorite of all her series. Again I think its how I always go back to action pack, suspenseful books. This one had all that with some romance and a smattering of paranormal what more can you as for?

Murder Game

Street Game

Ruthless Game

Ghostwalkers by Christine Feehan ~ V^^^^^V
My favorite of all the Feehan books to date. This series is about a mad scientist, basically; who takes a group of military personnel and alters their brain activity in order to make them capable of extra ordinary abilities. The experiments seem to have had not so pleasant results for many of the participants. The daughter of said scientist helps the men cope with life outside of their experimental cages. Along the way we discover there was a lot more at work than originally thought. As the series progresses the plot thickens greatly and I find myself more and more involved in unraveling the mystery of what really is going on.

Supernatural Anthology

Vampire Fight Club -Larissa Ione
Darkness Eternal -Alexandra Ivy
Kane -Jacquelyn Frank
Dragon on Top -G.A. Aiken

SupernaturalSupernatural by Larissa Ione

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVED IT! I am always game for a new Guardians of Eternity. Which did not disappoint. Secondly I am just starting to get into the Jacquelyn Frank books, and since to this point I have only read book one this anthology really worked out for me. I also have not yet started reading the Lords of Deliverance by Larissa Ione. To be honest I wasn't really in a big rush but I now I think I will move it up the to be read pile. Larissa has some highly addictive writing. So all in all, yes you should read this one.

Hit List -Laurell K. Hamilton

Hit List (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #20)Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

What to say, what to say. Well I can say that I was glad Anita actually did some work in this book versus previous books where all she did was f***.I was happy to read more about Edward and a few of his friends again. However I was really disappointed that while this book was about "Mommie Noir" there was basically no Jean Claude nor was there anything to do with Anita's many other lovers. I do enjoy reading about Micah and the like as much as Edward. To be honest I am not sure there is a way to balance that without there being far too much sex. I don't know, I guess I will read the next book but to be honest I am not going to rush out.

The Sexiest Vampire Alive -Kerrilyn Sparks

Sexiest Vampire Alive (Love at Stake, #11)Sexiest Vampire Alive by Kerrelyn Sparks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Liked it, I always like these. They are light reading thanks to the humor yet still have plenty of sexual tension, action and of course a likable couple. I was a little disappointed with the way the ending played out honestly I would have taken it a different direction but then I am not the writer. That said I recommend this one, see what you think. Oh and I wonder who is next?

Much Ado About Vampires -Katie MacAlister

Much Ado About Vampires (Dark Ones, #9)Much Ado About Vampires by Katie MacAlister

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I am so sad to have to report that really I didn't enjoy this book. Normally I love Katie MacAlister's books but this one I just could not get into. I thave to agree with a few reviews I read here on Goodreads. Cora was just plain ditsy and annoying, her dislike of vampires made NO sense to me at all and her fairly quick 180 on the subject made her seem like she had no standards. That's not to say that Alec isn't likable, because he is. Alec seems like almost the only one with any sense in the relationship. So my dislike of the main female character aside I found the flow of the book confusing and the fact that half of the book is written in first person Cora and the other half is third person, Alec really daunting. (Seriously, I wrote it down ever time it changed... Chapters 1-3,7,10,13,16,18 are all in 3rd person and Chapters 4-6, 8-9, 11-12, 14-15, 17, 19 are all in 1st person.)

I will say that I did enjoy the catch up with previous Dark Ones characters and the addition of some of the Dragon series characters. On a few occasions I laughed at some of the jokes but overall I don't think it was enough to save this story.

Naked Werewolves Series by Molly Harper

How long has it been since I mentioned my love of all things Molly Harper? Ok well here it is, I LOVE her Naked Werewolves. Well not quite as much as I love her Jane Jameson series but none the less these books were a riot as well. So get your butt out there and purchase or reread them ASAP.

Reading Order:
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf
The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf

Naked Werewolf Series by Molly Harper~ V^^^^^V
I am a huge Molly Harper fan. I stumbled across her Jane Jameson series at the library one day and gave it a shot. WOW, loved it, and was laughing the whole way through. Since I had so loved that series I was excited to see that she had a new one coming out. I preordered my copy of How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf and was thrilled when I received it a few days early. So about this book, Mo is a riot full of quips and quick comebacks, she was raised in a commune by hippy parents, leaving a hysterical history to read. I think some of my favorite lines are Mo’s generalizations of all werewolves. All the characters in Grundy are likeable and I found myself quickly rooting for them. The best news is we only have a little over a month wait for book 2 in the series. 2 Books to Date

The Bite Before Christmas Review

The Bite Before Christmas (Argeneau, #15.5; Night Huntress, #6.5)The Bite Before Christmas by Lynsay Sands

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVE Lynsay Sands, another fabulous Argeneau story. Didn't move to slow and didn't really rush through the story either. Can't wait for the next story.

Now Jeaniene Frost.... <3 How many ways can I say WOW! Once again I was completely engrossed in the story. Stayed up way to late to finish because could not put it down as soon as I started. Still one of my top 5 favorite series of all time. And definitely my number 1 favorite Urban Fantasy series.

The Real Werewives of Vamprie County Review

The Real Werewives of Vampire CountyThe Real Werewives of Vampire County by Alexandra Ivy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Technically I only read the Alexandra Ivy short story in this anthology but I really enjoyed it. At a later date I intend to read the other stories but I have quite the list of new releases to catch up on first. That said I found it a nice change to get to now the mother of the Were quadruplets. She always came off very indifferent but now I know the truth. Great story, in a way I wish it was a little longer, but I do love a short story every now and then. ~Michelle

It's Nauti Novermber You All

Nauti November

(Lora Leigh: Nauti Boys)
Nauti Boy
Nauti Nights
Nauti Dreams
Nauti Intentions
Nauti Deceptions
Nauti Kisses

This complete series is from our favorite Erotica author, Lora Leigh. This series is not as heavy as some of her other actions series but it is so wonderful. True to form Lora will have to attached to her character so you are laughing and crying along with them. I may just go ahead and reread these one more time.

Nauti by Lora Leigh ~ V^^^^V
Another offshoot of Lora Leigh’s Elite Ops and Tempting SEALs, but yet quite similar to her Bound Hearts series as well. Nauti follows the Mackay boys after military and back at home life. Harassing the local sheriff and having some good 'ole boy fun. All the while falling madly in love with that one woman who owns their hearts. Warning: Dirty, dirty sex. And lots of it.
