Book Description

Darkest London February 1, 2012
London, 1881
Once the flames are ignited . . .

Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.

They will burn for eternity . . . Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.

AAbout the Author

Kristen Callihan is a child of the eighties, which means she's worn neon skirts, black lace gloves, and combat boots (although never all at once) and can quote John Hughes movies with the best of them. A lifelong daydreamer, she finally realized that the characters in her head needed a proper home and thus hit the keyboard. She believes that falling in love is one of the headiest experiences a person can have, so naturally she writes romance. Her love of superheroes, action movies, and history led her to write historical paranormals. She lives in the Washington, D.C., area and, when not writing, looks after two children, one husband, and a dog-the fish can fend for themselves.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

Wow and this one has it all!  This is a quick review, but if you enjoy some historical, gothical (go with it!) , paranormal and magical type of romance, you will want to read this one.  First off, the dialogue is sharp and witty (SNARK ALERT!), the main characters of Archer and Miranda are just too ymmy and I adored it all.  The story is what is happening right now in young adult fiction.  This is a wonderful retelling of Beauty and the Beast but with a more adult theme.



Book Description

Dark Dynasties January 1, 2012
Two separate worlds . . .
One passion that binds them

Wild and passionate by nature, Lyra Black is not just any werewolf. She's the future leader of the powerful pack of the Thorn-if she can stay alive long enough to inherit the title.

One of the Cait Sith bloodline of vampire cat-shifters, Jaden Harrison has no interest in the wars plaguing the world of night. But when he rescues Lyra from a violent attack, they're both captured by an insatiable desire that threatens to overwhelm them and bind them together for eternity . . . just as ancient enemies prepare to strike. And when they do, the Thorn and the Cait Sith-and Lyra and Jaden's love-may never recover from the deadly blow . . . (2011)

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

I loved the first book in this series, so when werewolves and other werebeasties are added to the vampire mix, it only gets better. Jaden, who can change into a giant black cat with blood issues runs into Lyra, a werewolf, whom he never thought he would see again, is put right in her path.  And well, much like cats and dogs, these two fight, not noticing the attraction between them.  There are major issues with Lyra's pack and of course lots of infighting.  This is a wonderful and enjoyable read this world is so easy to get lost in!
