Fantastic start of a new paranormal series

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 04.04.2010

Over night, Kara MacAllister’s life is turned upside down when she learns that her recently deceased mother wasn’t her mother and a stranger appears in her life, who tells her that she is the Chosen one. Her normal life as a pre-school teacher goes flying out of the door. Her existence is vitally important for the Feral Warriors. She can give these warriors the power they need to fight their enemies. A journey lies ahead of her with information and events she can hardly believe. Her life will be threatened by a force like she has never seen or heard of before. To add more confusion to her already chaotic life she feels attracted to Lyon and he is the only one she can really trust, but what will the future look like for them? Is there a chance for a happy end for the star-crossed lovers?

DESIRE UNTAMED is the explosive start of the brand new Feral Warriors series by Pamela Palmer. Ms. Palmer delivers with her first Feral Warrior book a story that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride from the first page till the end. It isn’t easy to find your own place in the world of paranormal romance and to set yourself apart from the works of other authors, but Ms. Palmer did a great job. I was so fascinated by the story and the characters that I wasn’t able to stop reading, so I stayed up really late till I finished it. Her characters are multi-dimensional and you will absolutely fall under their spell. For me it was hard to choose my favorite warrior. Fortunately we can look forward to many more Feral warrior books, especially Obsession Untamed and Passion Untamed, which will be released back to back in August and September, so we don’t have to wait too long for our next Feral Warrior fix.

I can highly recommend this book to everyone who is looking for something new in the world of paranormal romance, I know you will love this book. Ms. Palmer is really an author you want to keep an eye on and I can hardly wait to read her next book.

Terrific paranormal series

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 04.04.2010

Tighe the hero of OBSESSION UNTAMED is a shape shifting tiger and is one of the Feral warriors. He meets FBI agent Delaney Randall who is tortured by images left by a serial killer, whose attack she survived. Delaney knows now what the killer looks like and can be a huge help for Tighe, because he needs to find the killer in whom the half of Tighe’s soul resides. He has to find him before he goes completely mad. But that isn’t the only reason why he is interested in Delaney, because very soon he realizes that she owns his heart and soul.

OBSESSION UNTAMED is an action filled and fast paced book that will keep you on the edge of your chair. I was unable to put down the book and stayed up very long to finish it, because I was so sucked into the story that I just forgot everything around me.

Tighe’s character is in OBSESSION UNTAMED quite different from the fun loving and easy going shifter, which the reader met in Desire Untamed. OBSESSION UNTAMED is the second book in Ms. Palmer’s really successful Feral Warrior Series and I recommend that you have the first book of the series, Desire Untamed, so that you get the all the information about the Feral Warriors.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series Passion Untamed, which was released in September 2009

I can highly recommend this book to everyone who is looking for a spellbinding paranormal romance!

Interesting Regency story

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 02.04.2010

Julia Maitland lived a nearly perfect childhood with her siblings in Derbyshire, she only worries when her brother takes off to fight against Napoleon. Julia’s biggest wish is to make a match during her first season. But her whole life turns upside down when a financial investment of her father fails, followed by her brother’s death. It is now the role of the oldest daughter to save her family, with a suitable match, from poverty.

Ms. Aylmer delivers with JULIA AND THE MASTER OF MORANCOURT an interesting Regency romp that is a joy for every die-hard Regency fan and reminds me a little bit of Georgette Heyer’s story-telling. Ms. Aylmer draws a perfect picture of the limitations the females of higher standing have to live with in Regency times. Additional to the Regency elements she adds mystery elements and a good dose of historical details. One can see that the author did her research well and knows what she is writing about.

In my opinion the characters aren’t complex enough and they had a lot more potential than what they became, that is the reason why the book didn’t get a higher rating.

It looks like there will be also stories for the other two Maitland sisters, the wild Sophie and the gentle Harriet. It will be interesting to see what their stories will be like.

JULIA AND THE MASTER OF MORANCOURT is the perfect book for all lovers of traditional and tamer versions of Regency romance. You will definitely enjoy this book.

Brilliant debut novel

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 27.03.2010

Jesse Alexander and Evan Arden couldn’t be any more different. Jesse the young and talented singer who tries to bring his band the much wanted success in the world of music and Evan the rock star who is hiding from his fans and the rest of the world. But both love their music and that is what brings them together. Jesse looks behind the façade that Evan built himself and sees the true Evan, but will he be able to show Evan the real joys of life? And that they are meant to be together?

CONQUEST is a fascinating story of love, heartbreak and dreams set in the interesting world of music and rock stars. It also shows that you should no judge everything at face value, but look deeper into a person’s character. Evan is the best example for this as he seems to be the typical arrogant rock star, but no sees the wounded soul that needs healing.

S.J. Frost delivers with CONQUEST one of the best debut novels that I have ever read in this genre if at all. This book seriously rocks and not only literally. Once you start reading you get completely enchanted and sucked into this story so that you will have a really hard time to stop reading. I was more than a little sad to see this story end, because not only were Jesse and Evan such fascinating characters but there were also great secondary characters. Fortunately for the readers there is the sequel called No Fear. I can hardly wait to see how the story continues.

CONQUEST is definitely one of those books that I will re-read, because it’s a keeper. So make space on your keeper shelves for your copy of CONQUEST. You really don’t want to miss such a terrific book, so hurry and get your copy today.

Fantasy romance at it's best

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 27.01.2010

Pyromancer Koranen is maybe even lonelier than his brother Rydan, because his mere touch burns the other person. How should he ever find his destined bride? The only chance would be an Aquamancer, so he sees his chance when four of them visit the island of Nightfall.

Danau is in a similar position like Koranen just that her touch leads to frostbites. She hides her lonely heart behind a frosty persona and Koranen is the right person to melt the ice wall around her heart, if he finally sees that she is destiny.

THE FLAME is the wonderful story of two people who have been dealt a hard life by the gods. Koranen’s loneliness through the book was heartbreaking and it was great to see that he finally found his happiness. Both Koranen and Danau are multi-layered characters who will grip your interest from the first page onward. I could hardly put down the book.

Ms. Johnson did a great job with showing her readers more and more of the world outside of Nightfall. The whole world building in the Sons of Destiny series is absolutely fascinating. The various races and nations make the books so special.

I highly recommend that you read this series in the correct order, because all the books are strongly connected with each other, but the series is soooo much fun!

I am looking forward to reading THE MAGE, but I am also sad that this will be the last book of the series.

Start to a new series

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 27.01.2010

Colonel Derek “Del” Delborough and his friends get the order to bring down the Black Cobra, the head of an Indian cult. When they discover the true identity of the Black Cobra, they realize that they will need help to bring him down. Del and his three friends separate and each of them carry one piece of evidence back to England. When Del arrives back in England he meets Delilah, who is drawn into his mission. Soon he has not only to fight against his enemies but also against his attraction toward Delilah, but he has not really a chance against her.

THE UNTAMED BRIDE is through and through a classic Stephanie Laurens book. You have your typical strong hero and an unconventional heroine, whom he just simply can’t resist. But none the less THE UNTAMED BRIDE is a fun book for all fans of Ms. Laurens and also a good book to start with for new fans.

In THE UNTAMED BRIDE you will meet beloved characters from the Cynster and Bastion Club series again. For those who are already familiar with them, it will be really enjoyable to revisit them. Some people might say that the plot line is the same as in previous books, but I liked meeting the characters again.

Let’s see how the Black Cobra Quartet will develop in the upcoming books. The next book, THE ELUSIVE BRIDE will be released in February 2010.

THE UNTAMED BRIDE is an enjoyable Regency romance, not only for Stephanie Laurens fans.

Fantasy story at it's best

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 26.01.2010

Amara and Arora flee their home country and land on the island of Nightfall. Amara has sworn to protect her twin sister Arora, who is surrounded by a great mystery. Amara has a natural distrust against mages and suddenly she finds herself and her sister on an island full of mages. To add even more confusion to the already reigning chaos in her feelings and thoughts she meets Trevan, who tells her that she is his “destined” bride. She feels herself drawn to him, but he is a mage, and her experience is that mages can’t be trusted. So Trevan has his hands full to charm Amara and persuade her that he is worthy of her trust.

A small warning should be issued, because THE CAT and the following book of the Sons of the Destiny series, THE STORM share a parallel time frame. I was intrigued by the idea and I have to say, that Ms. Johnson did a really good job with both books.

Ms. Johnson introduces a new country and race in the world where the Sons of Destiny live, namely the Shifterai, who are natural shapeshifters in opposite to Trevan and Wolfer who use magic. Amara and Arora are wary when it comes to strangers, because of Arora’s secret.

The love story between Amara and Trevan is not the highlight of the book, because the encounters between Amara and Kelly, the Queen of Nightfall are highly entertaining. Both woman are very headstrong and passionate about their opinions, Kelly finally has to learn some long overdue lessons about diplomacy and forgiveness.

I highly recommend that you read this series in the correct order, because all the books are strongly connected with each other, but the series is soooo much fun!

Good Regency romance

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 26.01.2010

Royce Varisey, Duke of Wolverton aka master spy Dalziel is retiring from his ministry to found a family. Shocked by his father’s death he is shattered that he couldn’t reconcile with his father before his death.

Minerva Chesterton is the chatelaine of Wolverton castle, she has been secretly infatuated with Royce for a long time, but she knows that her chances to become his duchess are nearly non existent. But she didn’t count on Royce’s growing feelings towards her. Because he is fascinated by her prim and proper behaviour, it seems that he is able to see under her surface. That’s why he embarks on a seduction to win her as his bride.

Ms. Laurens has a talent to keep her readers on their toes, because the plot is sometimes really unpredictable, which keeps you on the edge of your chair. I really looked forward to read Royce’s story and I wasn’t disappointed, it was as good as I hoped.

MASTERED BY LOVE is the 8th book in the Bastion Club, but you can read it as a stand-alone, although all other the books of the series are great and I can tell you that you will want to read them, after reading MASTERED BY LOVE.

This is a really good conclusion to a great series. I was more than a little sad to see this series coming to an end, but I am sure that Ms. Laurens will start another great one very soon.

I highly recommend this book to all fans of fantastic regency romances! You will love it!

Fantastic story

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 26.01.2010

Arora is not a typical Shifterai (a natural shapeshifter), because instead of shapeshifting talents she posses magic. She hoped that mages would help her with her powers but they covet her powers, so that she has to flee her homeland. Together with her twin sisters she lands on the island of Nightfall after a shipwreck.

Rydan dreaded the prophecy for a long time and especially now when he encounters Arora, who he believes to be his twin destined bride. Arora seems to see beneath his mysterious and sometimes prickly exterior, will she be able open his heart?

A small warning should be issued, because THE STORM and the previous book of the Sons of the Destiny series, THE CAT share a parallel time frame. I was intrigued by the idea and I have to say, that Ms. Johnson did a really good job with both books.

Since I have read the first book of the series, I was looking forward to read Rydan’s story, because he is one of the most fascinating characters in the series. You can’t help yourself but fall in love with him, if you like your heroes not so perfect. Arora is the perfect heroine for him because she is the exact counterpoint of him and completes him perfectly.

I am so looking forward to see how the series continues!

I highly recommend that you read this series in the correct order, because all the books are strongly connected with each other, but the series is soooo much fun!

Really hot story

Dannyfiredragon aus Duisburg , am 29.10.2009

RIDING ON INSTINCT is the third installement of Ms. Burton fantastic and intriguing Wild Rider series and although you can read this book as a stand-alone I recommend to read the other books, Riding Temptation and Riding Wild, too, not only to understand the Wild Riders better but also for pure reading fun.

In RIDING ON INSTINCT it is time for Spencer King to say goodbye to his bachelorhood, because he meets his match in Department of Justice agent Shadoe Grayson. Spence is to work together with her on an undercover mission to identify a rogue DEA agent in a strip club. For Shadoe this means to pose as a stripper, something that she has never done before and also something that Spence thinks she isn’t able to do, because she reminds him more of a prim schoolteacher than a stripper and from the first moment on, the sparks are flying between them. Those two are just too much alike and it becomes a battle of wills between them, but they can’t deny their attraction.

What I loved in this book was the interaction and relationship between Spence and Shadoe. It is like those two wounded souls wait their whole life to become one and heal each other.

Another aspect which I really like is that the whole book is unpredictable, because you never know what will happen next and you will be absolutely sucked into the story. I read the book in one session because I couldn’t put it down. So take your time when you start with this book. I have been a long time fan of Ms. Burton and the Wild Rider books are on the top of my favorite book list.

If you are looking for a hot and fascinating book, I can highly recommend RIDING ON INSTINCT. I can hardly wait to read the next book of this series.
