A haunted house becomes the focus of a demonic investigation so Brenda teams up with a trio of werewolves to solve the mystery. But when the house eats her, can they find a way to save her?

I met a trio of furballs when my BFF was dealing with a demon issue  and since then, I can’t stop thinking about them.

When the chance to investigate a possessed house appears on my desk—after I filch it from someone else’s—I know it’s fate we team up again.

However, I might have bitten off more than I can chew because suddenly my hunky puppies are demanding I become their permanent chew toy.

Me, mated? Eek, but also yum.
 Did I mention they totally make my body purr?

Before we can indulge in a sweatily-ever-after, though, they’ll need to save me from Mr. Peabody’s house, because I do believe it ate me.

What an imagination this writer has – she continues to amaze me. Here we have shifters, witches, demons and rather unusually possessed houses that eat people!

All good rather naughty fun.

Here comes Halloween – again!

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Sebastian Ellingham isn’t known for being a happy vampire. And when his long estranged wife returns expecting to pick up where they left off, things take a sharp turn toward cranky. Sure he’s been protecting her for centuries, but her assumption that he’s still available (he is) rankles. His answer is to hire a woman to play his fiancée. The lucky victim is Tessa Blythe, sister of one of the town’s deputies, librarian in need of a job and, oh yes, reluctant Valkyrie. Playing along with Sebastian is all about the end game: earning the position of Dean of Library Studies at the local private academy. When unexpected sparks fly between them, they agree to mutually deny the attraction. Fate, however, has other plans…

Kristen has written a series of novels about Nocturne Falls and its rather unusual inhabitants and their romances. There is also a series of cosy mysteries based in this paranormal town.

However, this is one of the romances.

We have a vampire and he needs to pretend he is going to marry – so he advertises and then things become real. Nice romance.

The Auction and the Vampires

The Hunger Games meets Cinderella. This fairy tale has no happy endings only dark beginnings. They call them the Crimson Fold. High up in their castle they look down on my little world and wield a silent control. That is, until the invitations are sent out. I never dreamed I’d be selected. They tell me it’s a privilege. I should be honored. But the fear in their eyes doesn’t lie. If I refuse to go, my family will be shunned. If I go, my life and my body will no longer be mine. It’ll be theirs. At midnight it will be over. At Midnight I’ll be his.

So Vampires – the Crimson Fold – rule the world – or at least the City State that Clarabelle lives in and each year they have a grand ball where various members of the populace are viewed – rather like a cattle auction. Their looks and capabilities are tested and then they are assigned to their role in the palace – or not. So the ones that look ‘best for breeding’ are given as lovers – or in marriage to the Royalty. The ones not so good are made into servants.

Because this whole Palace choosing so closely resembled the slave/cattle auction I marked it down a little – although it was probably meant to do this.

I liked Clarabelle and do wonder what her Prince has in store for her, but not enough to want to read the follow on book. Sorry. 3.5 stars

Four Fates. Four Sisters.
Get lost in a world of succubi, spell casting, and sassy jokes. And meet the men sent to Protect the Bellum sisters: The scarred vampire commander with a heart of ice, the alpha shapeshifter who will stop at nothing to capture his mate, the hot golden-skinned, blue-haired demon warlord who'd rather work than play, and finally, the banished king--cursed to a life of tortured darkness. These are the Bellum sisters and these are their stories.

The Bellum sisters are endowed with magical and seductive qualities as succubus creatures and although they've lived independently for their entire lives, all that is about to change as they reach their 29th birthday.

At a succubus' 29th year she no longer needs food to sustain herself, but sex. Their father has died and in his wake he has bequeathed his daughters into the ownership of new Protectors: the vampire commander, Tyrian en Kulev; the alpha shapeshifter, Lyonis Keelan; the demon warlord, Telal Demuzi; and the cursed demon king, Alrik Demuzi.

The sisters will fight ancient demons the size of mountains while battling their hearts, casting a few bad spells, cursing bloody murder, making crude jokes, and cozying up to a hard male body. What more could a succubus want?

Once upon a time there were 3 sisters who were succubi. Now you know how succubi feed don’t you? So now you know what most of this book was about – and why I started skipping pages before I was half-way through the first of the 4 books. Repetition. And a 4th sister appeared later.

I was only reading the books for light entertainment as I wasn’t feeling well but I really couldn’t be bothered to finish.

Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .

Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.

I’m afraid this book didn’t do it for me. I was bored and didn’t complete it. A tired story-line.
