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.

The Dragon Master by Allyson James

Now where can I get a dragon of my own? Especially one that turns into a mouth-watering specimen of masculine beauty? Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to settle for Allyson James’ dragon men and her latest book “The Dragon Master.”

Double the Enchantment by Kathryne Kennedy

This is my second read by Kathryne Kennedy. “Double Enchantment” is her second book about an England where magic is commonplace in the upper class. In fact, magic is the determinant to belong to the upper class. The stronger your magic, the higher your status. Except for shapeshifters, for some reason their magic is considered too wild and they are looked down upon by the rest of high society. Kennedy’s series is set in regency times so the books are a strange mix of historical paranormal that just seems a bit off for me.

Seduction of a Proper Gentleman by Victoria Alexander

Tart and spicy with a heavy seasoning of humor. When I read the blurb on the back cover of “Seduction of a Proper Gentleman” by Victoria Alexander, I was a bit disappointed. All I could think of was…oh, amnesia as a plot device. But I actually found this story very intriguing and different. This is the final book in her ‘Last Man Standing’ series about four Regency gentlemen who make a wager as to who will be the last one to wed. And, as often happens in fiction, the winner is the only one who wasn’t anti-marriage to begin with!

My Wicked Enemy by Carolyn Jewel

The classic story of enemies falling in love gets a paranormal update in Carolyn Jewel’s “My Wicked Enemy.” Nikodemos is an immortal fiend who is determined to kill the mage Alvaro Magellan and his witch Carson Philips. Carson, for her part, is an orphan who has grown up in Magellan’s house but has no idea of her true heritage or power. One day, she accidentally catches a glimpse of Magellan’s evil and flees his house. In her first few hours of freedom she runs into Nikodemos, who is only too happy to bump into the unprotected witch.

Review: Mystic Rider by Patricia Rice

Mystic Rider by Patricia Rice

Opening the cover of a newly released book by a favored author is always an exciting moment. Comfy chair? Check. Chilled beverage (or hot if it’s winter)? Check. Kids and hubby otherwise occupied? Check. Here we go! So I just jumped at the chance to read “Mystic Rider,” the second book in Patricia Rice’s new ‘Mystic Isle’ series. It’s a romance, it’s an historical, and it has magic! I get goose bumps just thinking about it!!! Mystic Isle is an invisible island that is home to a race of people with special talents. They chose to separate themselves from the Outside World in an effort to create a Utopia. But recently, ‘things’ have been happening that seem to be drawing some of their people out to the other world, the most recent being Ian, their Sky Rider, who is the leader of their Council.
