When an unfathomable disease attacks certain members of the Dragonstar dragon shifters, King Dylan heads to a premier medical researcher and offers her millions to come to his clans New Mexico residence. Upon her arrival it is learned that Dylan's niece has contracted the deadly disease and leaves Dylan and all others who knew her in a state of devastation. Having arrived in time to oversee the final moments of such an outgoing, lovely teen, Dr. Phoebe Quillum rolls up her sleeves and gets down to work trying to find out why this germ only affects certain members of who, she thinks, is a native American Tribe. While staying with Dylan in his home, Phoebe and Dylan have a sexual bond like nothing either has ever felt before. Dylan's only reserve with Phoebe is the fact that she cannot be his mate because she is human. Things are not always as they seem...with the disease or Phoebe. I enjoyed this foray into Tessa Adams Dragon series and have the next two in this series waiting to be read. Join me and soar with dragons....

Leave it to J.R. Ward to take a subject of male on male romance and make it so tastefully done that I didn't squick out once. I love the fight of a male and a strong female finding romance, I love when a macho over protective male is brought to his knees by the love of a tiny power house woman, I love when a strong woman can find her feminine side with the love of the right male. And now I love the bromance between two strong males. Blay and Qhuinn's story is a heart wrenching look into the lives of two men that grew up as best friends. One accepted by his parents and loved no matter what. One disavowed by all the members in his home, thrown out and nearly beaten to death by his own blood brother because: (are you ready for this?) he has one blue eye and one green eye. Qhuinn has become a fighter that even the King has noticed, he is one of the best young fighters in many a year. The ride that his volatile life style comes without life insurance. So hang on tight when Qhuinn enters the room, because you never know what will happen next. With the Band of Bastards, a group of soldiers from the "Old County" trying to find any way to kill or de-throne Wrath the ruling King and heart of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, the Lessening society, a group of baby powder smelling, black blood killers of all things Vampire and their own Glymera, the aristocracy of the vampire world, trying to tip the scales to de-throne Wrath, the Brotherhood is trying to keep everyone safe and the world calm. New characters are introduced for future books in the wonderful series, people you will hate and love...making us anxious for the next book and the next and the *well you get my drift*.

By now some of you know that a reader in Germany obtained a copy of DEAD EVER AFTER and decided to post the ending online. While this is unfortunate, I wanted to say this to all of you: Even if you *personally* are unhappy with the ending, please don’t spoil it for other readers. DEAD EVER AFTER goes on sale on May 7th; after that date, you are more that welcome to come here and tell me how much you like - or don’t like - the choices I’ve made for Sookie. But from one Sookie fan to another, I’m asking you all to please not spoil the book for other readers. Thank you so much for your continued support. Charlaine Harris

Just when you thought it was safe to wade back into the books...more on the release of the ending of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. (yes I finally said her name, those of us that know, know. So if you see someone reviewing a copy of Dead Ever After...RUN!) One of my favorite authors: MaryJanice Davidson, has had a few choice, and very funny, words to say on the matter. Take a moment and go over and laugh your ass off over her take on all the bull****! http://maryjanicedavidson.blogspot.com/2013/05/charlaine-harris-still-bullied-with.html

This is a wonderful, wonderful YA series. I have adored the growth and loves of the PYR...that's what the Dragon shifters call themselves. It was sad when the only female dragon, called the Wyvern, died and moved on to her next life, be it human or other. When the leader of the Pyr and his human wife had their first child, all felt blessed when it wound up being a girl, the ONLY female...the next Wyvern. And though Zoe is just learning all she will need as the Wyvern...and as Zoe says: she didn't have a book to learn what she NEEDS to know, she has had to learn everything on the fly *snicker, flying being one of the things she needed to learn*...While her Mom and Dad are away 16 year old Zoe is staying with her best friend Meagan, and an evil beyond all known ways to vanquish permeates the town, what will Zoe do to free her loved ones from death, enthrallment and ignorance? All while getting through her life as a high school student with a high school girls problems with boys, teachers and an upcoming dance. Will Zoe make her parents proud? Or will there be a Zoe left to ground? Time and a wonderful addition to The Dragon Series will tell!

As a book reviewer I must say I'm shocked over the revelation of the finale of a VERY popular series that has been leaked to the public prior to the release of the said book. I NEVER reveal too much about a story, just enough to tempt the reader to go out and purchase the book and hopefully enjoy it as much as I did. I don't understand the mean nature of some people to have done such a thing. I hope that the author can find who did this thing and see to the prosecution of the person. Shameful, just shameful!

Dr. Moira Jameson is nuts. Moira is falling for a Werewolf. Who lives in a hidden town full of Vampires. With a big ass pyramid only she can enter (what's up with that, anyway?) Where are your pills when you really need them. Archaeologist/billionaire Moira Jameson is having a bad week...vampires try to kill her and her students at an archaeology dig site, when good vampires (there are good vampires?) and drop dead sexy werewolves come to their rescue. This would call for a study all in itself, but the good vamps glamour their minds into forgetting the episode. A week later the bad vamps show up again and kidnap Moira and her favorite student, Dove. When rescued Moira and Doves memories are returned because only Moira can access the pyramid and all it's traps, with a hunky werewolf body guard watching....well, her body. Sex is NOT what a good archaeologist should be thinking about at a time like this, but what the hell...a hot werewolf is just H.O.T! When Dove and the Queen of werewolves and vampires is kidnapped, solving the riddle of the pyramid becomes a matter of life or death...and the prophesied death is Moira's. Fast, fast read folks...it's so good you don't WANT to set it down!

Whoa...I mean seriously, WHOA. When I started this book I was so lost, so I went and pulled Once Burned off the shelf to bring myself up to speed and returned to Twice Tempted, but it did not pick up from the point that the first book ended, I said screw it and plowed on. I am so glad I did. Jeaniene Frost was her writer extraordinaire self. I so fell in love with all the characters all over again. Leila Dalton is in love with Dracula (don't call him that because it pisses him off), Vlad will give Leila anything she wants, except the thing she wants the most...3 little words "I love you". When Vlad refuses, Leila leaves to return to her life as a carnival acrobat...but when the Motor home she shares with her best friend Marty blows up and many people are killed and injured, she leaves with Vlad's #1 vampire, Maximus, who is in love with Leila...he tells her Vlad might be the one who tried to kill her because she dared to leave him. This just doesn't seem like the lover Leila knows. When she is abducted and Vlad comes to take her back to his castle, there are still attempts to kill her. WHY? The hunt for the killer forges forward...but will Vlad verbalize his feelings for Leila, or will a killer succeed?
