But when heart calls to heart…blood to blood…should two people who seem destined to be together heed the spin of Fate’s wheel? Craig spent years floating through life on cruise control, using directionless jobs, his rock band, swimming, and a string of older women in his bed to smother feelings of loneliness and loss.

But his self-doubt and innate sense of failure is only reinforced when he realizes her heart belongs to another […]

As always Molly Harper has brought the snark and sassy in The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires. This is the second book in the Half Moon Hollow series, which is a spin-off from Harper’s Jane Jameson series. TCFSV almost read like the 1st book in the spin-off series instead of the second. There was more mention of Jane in this one than Driving Mr. Dead. And Iris was thinking of adding a transport service to her vampire concierge business. But Driving Mr. Dead was the start of the transport service so I wonder if Harper wrote TCFSV before or at the same time she wrote DMD. It was a little confusing but not enough to mess with my head. In any account you can […]
With Blooded being the appetizer; Full Blooded is the main course. Jessica is a one of a kind, being the only female werewolf. She is even odder since she didn’t shift once she hit puberty like the other werewolves.

No one including Jessica’s dad, the Alpha of the North U.S. Pack has no idea what this means and why it’s taken so long for the shift to happen especially since they have no guide-book to go by with her being the only one of her […]
Blooded reads more like a really long prologue that makes you salivating for chapter one. Amanda Carlson hits you with a stunning amount of greatness in a small amount of pages; with great world and character building. Most prequels you can get away without reading going into a series but I highly recommend starting with Blooded. It gives you an understanding of the hell that Jessica grew up in by being the only female born to a wolf. She had to fight for her life; she might not be a werewolf but she can hold her own and if you miss reading the novella you will be rob going into Full Blooded.

Right then, the lovely Jennifer asked me to make a case for the sexiness of werewolves lycans –which are way better than werewolves, as they aren’t plagued by that pesky inability to control themselves on the full moon. I mean, honestly, that would put a bit of a damper on any moonlit rendezvous! So then, what exactly is so sexy about a lycan, specifically, that oh so charming lycan Ian Ranulf? Where to begin? 1. Wolves are crafty and playful by nature. Combine that with a handsome man and you get one charming fiend. Ian Runulf is that and more. He’s got a wicked sense of humor and doesn’t hesitate to tease Daisy. “ “Don’t go playing the Scottish lord with me.” She kicked at […]
Transcription of a Conversation with Special Agent Beatrice Alexander, F.R.E.A.K. by Jennifer Harlow NOTE: A few months ago I had the privilege of interviewing Special Agent Beatrice Alexander of the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad for an article in Government Secrets Gazette, now defunct due to budget cuts. (The NASA gang and I say thanks from the unemployment line, Mr. President!) Now, I’m forced to go freelance. I remained in e-mail contact with Agent Alexander in the interim and at my own expense flew back to Wichita in an attempt to uncover more information for future articles (or blackmail. Leaning towards blackmail.) We met at a Starbucks, and I secretly recorded the conversation. Here it as follows: Jennifer Harlow (JH): Hi, girl! You look…um… Beatrice Alexander (BA): Terrible. […]
