Claude Desmaris, a vampire, and member of the Chicago Paranormal Unit, has need of some special assistance. Assistance that only an old friend can provide. Beatrice is the one he needs. Talented in psychometry, Beatrice can provide clues to the evidence he has in his possession. Evidence that could bring down the son of a very powerful vampire in Chicago. A vampire that Claude believes to be guilty of unspeakable crimes.
Beatrice is an investigator for the OWEA, the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, in St. Louis. However, currently, she is on a leave of absence, and is bored. When Claude appears at her door, a vision from her past, he brings with him the possibility of intrigue and excitement. And something to occupy her mind and her time, and maybe her lonely heart as well.
Through danger, intrigue and multiple twists and turns, Claude and Beatrice wind their way through the wicked plot created by an evil vampire. As they try to unravel the mystery of the evidence that Claude has, not only do they find evil, they solve not one mystery, but two. But, will they be able to work through more than just the mysteries, but the pain and sorrow of the past to find happiness and love in the future?
This was a really good read! Fascinating from the beginning, the characters are well written, and the plot flows well from beginning to end. This was the first novel I’ve read by Ms. Allee, and I plan to read more! I would definitely recommend this book and encourage others who like paranormal romance to give it a try!
This novel, the first in the Opeth Pack Saga, is the story of reluctant Alpha Joszi. Prophecy within the pack foretold that he would be Alpha, but he has long run from it, leaving Hungary for Houston, Texas. In the process, he has left behind not only his pack duties, but his true loves, Ilona and Lukina.
When the current Alpha, Kiba goes mad from the lunar flower disease, Lukina goes in search of Joszi, hoping to bring him back to Hungary to save not only the pack, but Ilona. Will her love, and that of Ilona be enough to draw him to his destiny? Or will Kiba’s madness win and Joszi lose his loves forever? Can Joszi defeat Kiba or is his madness too strong?
I LOVED this book! Full of steamy sex, fight scenes, and a hot tortured hero, Sascha has done it again. A great start to a wonderful series to come.

The newest installment of The Gaslight Chronicles does not fail to live up to the standard set by the previous books in the series. Set in Scotland, this book is the story of Belinda Danvers and Sir Connor MacKay. Belinda, a widow, has been accused of witchcraft, is jailed and is to be burned at the stake. Sir Connor has been sent to investigate. As a Knight, it is his duty to investigate all things magickal in the kingdom, and the Order is the only group authorized to prosecute in such cases.
Will Sir Connor be able to save Belinda from the stake and those who have accused her? Can Belinda open her heart to another man? Can Sir Connor overcome his love for another woman? Or will the evil that threatens them all win at last.
This novel grabbed my attention from the first page, I had a difficult time putting it down. With witches, werewolves, sorcerers, and all the intrigue, what more could a reader of paranormal books want? And of course, there is the romance! Ms. Pape has once again written a novel full of all the elements that this reader enjoys. Anyone looking for a steampunk romance with paranormal elements will enjoy this book immensely!

The Trinity Bond is struggling.

In this novella, Carrie Ann has told the story of a loss and pain in a very real way. Showing the bond of these mates falling apart, their pain at the loss, and what lengths they will go to to return to each other. A wonderful addition to the Redwood Pack series! Don’t miss it!
