    Tempest Rising is the first book in the Jane True Series by Nicole Peeler. It’s a fun and light read. Almost every fae creature you can think of is covered in this book. And Jane finds out that she not only belongs to the human world (although she doesn’t find like she fits) she is also part of the fae world on her mother’s side. Jane has a past that even if she could forget, her home town will not let her. After she gets sucked into a world she never knew about, she meets the sexy Ryu. Ryu is in town to investigate a murder and he just happens to be fae. In fact Jane learns that he is a vampire but […]

Please do not let the cover turn you off of reading Darklands. I hate it when a great book gets a not so great cover. I’ve read books with really pretty covers where the cover was the only thing the book had going for it. So like the old saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Darklands picks up about a month after Bloodstone and we start off by seeing Vicky getting suckered into going to Tina’s school for Career Night. Of course, the popular speaker in the all zombie class is a fry cook that brought coupons for free food. (If you’ve not read this series, Zombies eat more than Shaggy and Scooby Doo) Vicky has the luck of being the last […]

In general, I’m not crazy about time travel stories because the paradoxes end up scrambling my brain. This story doesn’t bother with that kind of nonsense and freed me to just relax and enjoy the action. It’s one of the best I’ve read, though my repertoire is pretty slim. Panna’s pretty adventuresome for a librarian and she was before she became a widow. The one time I felt I needed to stretch of my sensibilities was when she discovered the portal. Panna’s reaction was more “look what I found” instead of being flattened or astounded by it. This distracted me for awhile but once I moved on, I was drawn into the intrigue. Panna discovers Bridgewater almost immediately after entering the portal. He’s leery of […]

Driving Mr. Dead is a great fast read with Harper’s usual mix of humor and sexiness. Fans of the Jane Jameson series will want to check out the novella. We get a short and funny scene with Dick and a few mentions of Jane. But if you have not read the JJ series you can still read Driving Mr. Dead and not be lost. Miranda Puckett is a fun-loving gal that is having a bad time deciding whither to get back with her ex-fiance. In order to get a little alone time and space from him to think, she takes a job with her friend’s transport company. They just happen to transport vampires. Miranda’s first client, Collin, is an anal-retentive, shut-in vampire that lives in […]
