The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox

I had my 30th birthday a few months ago, and sometimes it seems amazing that I survived it.  After all, it seems that 30th birthdays in books are always distressing for some reason or another.  Usually it’s some sort of emotional trauma, but in “The Accidental Demon Slayer” by Angie Fox it’s a whole level of traumatic.

Demons are Forever by Julie Kenner

I’ve always been a fan of Julie Kenner’s Confessions of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom series.  What’s not to love about a woman who hunts demons while worrying about the next PTA meeting?  I thought the first two books in the series (Carpe Demon and California Demon) were charming and delightful, and I’m pleased to say that the third book, Demons are Forever, is just as good.

Wages of Sin by Jenna Maclaine

It always gives me a thrill to discover a book by a new author…especially if after I finish their book I want to read MORE. Happily, this was the case with “Wages of Sin” by Jenna Maclaine. The author managed to strike just the right chord to create a fascinating historical tale of magic, vampires, and demons (oh my!) without leaving me feeling like I’d read it all before! I can hardly wait to see where she goes from here and I certainly plan to be taking that journey with her new characters.

Review: Everlasting Bad Boys by Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden, and Noelle Mack

Everlasting Bad Boys by Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden, and Noelle Mack

Romance readers fall into two camps: those who like anthologies and those who hate ‘em.  I’m in the like ‘em camp for a few good reasons.  First, the stories are shorter so I don’t end up staying awake all night to finish; I can just read one or two of the stories and still ‘be done’, at least for a while.  Second, I enjoy the opportunity to read different voices on (usually) the same general subject matter.  Seeing how different authors interpret the same concept interests me.  Finally, most anthologies include at least one author I am unfamiliar with, thus I always feel a frisson of excitement that I might find a new author to add to my very long, very detailed list.  So when I had the opportunity to read and review “Everlasting Bad Boys” by Shelly Laurenston, Cynthia Eden, and Noelle Mack, I jumped at it and found I enjoyed myself.
