One in particular. Tanner Riggs was Lucky Harbor’s current most popular bachelor. Actually, Lucille had called him the… Read more »

A Quick Bite. How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

October 21, 2014 Audio Book Review, Book Reviews 8 ★★★

  First Thought: HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE VAMPIRE is a fun and campy paranormal romance. What I liked: How the couple meet.

Most of the books I read have some profanity (even the few YA books I’ve… Read more »
