Review: The Cowboy and The Vampire by Clark Hays & Kathleen McFall

Review: The Cowboy and The Vampire by Clark Hays & Kathleen McFall

Posted July 8, 2012 by Jennifer in Book Review | 7 Comments

The Cowboy and The Vampire is about good and evil. It has a unique, somewhat religious twist to the vampire myth; where the humans are referred to as Adamites by the vampires. The story is told from both Lizzie and Tucker’s point of views. I enjoyed Tucker’s side a little more since there was some tongue in cheek humor and we got to see some pretty funny side characters through his eyes. The back of the book states that The Cowboy and The Vampire is “A Darkly Romantic Mystery”, well there were some romantic aspects but it was not the main focus (aka no smexy scenes). As far as the Mystery part….not so much. And yeah there were some dark parts but it’s by no […]

Good morning, readers! I’m absolutely thrilled to be here today, and excited to share my new erotic romantic suspense, Lie To Me, with all of you. It released on July 3rd, and if you like sexy thrillers I recommend you check it out. One of the things I am often asked when people find out I write erotic romance is how much of my own life goes into my writing. I don’t know if other authors experience this (I haven’t particularly asked), but I swear, every conversation leads to this at some point. Let’s think about this: My Black Opal books are about covert spies who technically don’t exist on paper. If you really want to be correct, they are assassins. I can’t kill a […]


Review: Soulless by Gail Carriger

Posted July 5, 2012 by Jonetta in Book Review | 5 Comments

      Alexia Tarabotti is a soulless spinster whose deceased father is Italian. Apparently she inherited her father’s physical traits, which were not considered vogue in 19th century England. Even her mother felt it unnecessary to have her participate in the ton season, thinking it a waste of time. They live in a world where the paranormal (werewolves, vampires and others) coexist openly with humans and the story opens with Alexia accidentally killing a vampire. The werewolf Lord Maccon, leader of the Bureau of Unnatural Registry is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. Everyone seems to believe she is responsible when it is determined that vampires are appearing and disappearing unexpectedly. Oh, as a soulless, she has the ability to render supernatural powers useless. […]

I loved this series!! Wicked Deeds starts with us seeing some of the later scenes in No Rest of the Wicked during the end of the Hide but through Bowe’s eyes. We see why the little witch cursed him and how they spent their time at the end of the game. Both Bowe and Mariketa spent weeks locked up in separate caves vowing to kill the other for what they had done to each other. But once Bowe gets free and learns that Mari is still trapped and in danger all he can think about it getting to her to save her. During a long trip in the jungle to get Mariketa to home and safety, the two get to know each other and have […]

This is a touching, heartwarming love story that is also a lesson in courage. Amelia Carson is a true hero in that she looked beyond the surface of Houston Leigh and saw his heart, even when he couldn’t. I think she was incredibly brave and resilient to seek a new life for herself, especially during this era. She didn’t waste time feeling sorry for herself because of her circumstances but was determined to make the best of it and create the opportunity. Amelia was just lucky that it included Houston. Speaking of Houston, he epitomizes the tortured hero. One side of his face is terribly scarred and it has shaped him in some good and some unfortunate ways. The good way? He’s a sensitive man who […]
