Giveaway Info and Review of Urban Fantasy/Romance book Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires) by Chloe Neill




Title: Friday Night Bites
Series: Chicagoland Vampires, book 2
Author: Chloe Neill




Official Synopsis
The story of a young heiress's initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues?

Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they're enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But should people learn about the Raves -mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle - the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.

So now it's up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn't want peace between them, someone with an ancient grudge.

My Review
This book in one sentence: A must-read thriller that is filled with action, romance, suspense, kick-ass heroines (side characters included), and tons of hot creatures of the night. Loved it!
What can I say, this book is even better than the first. The characters we know and love are back in action and the world-building has expanded to give us a glimpse into the lives of werewolves - what's not to love?

Merit is a newly turned vampire, Sentinel of the Cadogan House (think of an hot vampire general with model looks) and the world on her shoulders. When an ex threatens her house, she must team up with her Master Ethan, who is both the biggest pain in her ass and the one who just may steal her heart. Together they must stop her journalist ex from releasing an article about Vampire raves. These raves are parties where humans become Slurpee's to the vamps are the last thing that they want the public to know about. They realize that all is not what it seems and this story is just the tip of the iceberg and the only way to stop it is for Merit to face the past and the life she has been trying to avoid all of her life. With her families "help" she entrenches herself into the life of the elite and with Ethan by her side, they soon come face to face with an enemy who wants them dead and to bring Cadogan House to its knees.

First things first: "Ethan and Merit - please hurry up and get together already!" Aahh - much better. The characters we know and love are in this book and even better than before. Merit has left her home to live at Cadogan house, which mean more time with Ethan - Yay!. Though they still haven't got together - Boo!. She is still learning how to adjust. One thing she doesn't do is submit to Ethan, and that is where that tension, both sexual and otherwise, comes in. I love the banter and the moments where they are able to let their guards down. Those "will they, won't they" moments are both entertaining and frustrating in a totally addicting way. Morgan is also in this book and is sorta-kinda dating Merit, although she is not rally sure what to do with him. He is funny, playful and seems to get her and I kind of feel bad for him. He needs to pickup the book: She's Just Not That Into You because the red signals are flashing on that relationship. Mallory and Catcher - another one of my favorite couples. They argue, they fight and they they makeup..rather loudly. They are so funny, each the complete opposite of the other. I laugh out loud whenever you get a glimpse into the life of these two.

The rest of the Cadogan and her grandpa's crime fighting gang is still the same and  as funny and fun as ever. The new addition is the shifters, one in particular is her ex who seems to have the biggest grudge against Vamps. He threatens to bring down their house, but there is a mysterious back story that makes us realize it is much more than just his hatred for vamps.

I loved this book and am addicted to this series. This book is even better than the first and I finished it in one day - It is a must read!

This book is rated 5 fangs.

Review and Giveaway of Urban Fantasy/Romance book, Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires) by Chloe Neill



Title: Some Girls Bite
Series: Chicagoland Vampires, Book 1
Author: Chloe Neill







Official Synopsis
First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student’s introduction into a society of vampires.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.

Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.
My Review
This book in three words: Addicting, Thrilling, Funny
I have to start out by thank you - my readers - for telling me that I have to read this when I posted a To Read or Not To  Read article about this series. You were right - I loved the series! It was funny, action-packed, and filled with thrills, chills, and romantic tension that gave me goosebumps.

Merit was a semi-normal girl coming from a rich family but working hard to distance herself from them in order to make a name for herself. She does this by shunning the socialite lifestyle and becoming an academic. One night, her whole life changes when she is attacked by a vampire. What saved her is Ethan Sullivan - Master of Cadogan House and a vampire himself. He turns her and when she wakes up, she realizes her "life " will never be the same. Given the fact that the killer is still after her, the party is actually just getting started.

Her journey into the lifestyle of a vampire, Ethan's expectations of her which includes her servitude and her surprising role she is given in vampire society will have you laughing, gasping, and glued to the pages from beginning to end.

Merit is everything I love to see in a heroine: she is strong, smart, and a fighter. She bends the rules, goes against the grain and really knows how to shake things up - even the eldest of the undead cannot keep up with her. Ethan is a paradox - you love him, hate him, yet cannot stop fantasizing about him even when he pisses you off and I love it! He is not like the "normal" hero where all he does is pine for his love. Instead he is usually the thorn in Merit's back side and the banter between these two provides tons of entertainment.

The side characters are equally amusing. We have Merit's bff Mallory who is tons of fun and energy. Her life changes in unexpected ways as well so you have a great side story for the price of one :-) The connection they share will leave readers thinking of her as a bff too. There is also Catcher who is a sexy bad-ass sorcerer with a snarky attitude. You can't help but love him, especially when we get to see his softer side once he falls in love. With who? Read and find out :) We have Jeff the werewolf who is shy, strong and hilarious in a geeky sort of way. His snide comments will have you smiling. Merit and her Granddad's relationship will melt your heart , especially once you meet her ice-cold conniving father Joshua. Someone kill this guy please!  The only qualm is that the dialogue in the very beginning was not up to par. The author definitely got her groove as she finished up the series and this little peeve of mine was not a problem in book 2.

This book is amazing and highly addicting. I went through books 1-3 in two days..lol. If you want action, humor, and a teasing romance that will ave you screaming "do it already!" then this is the book for you!

This book is rated 4 1/2 fangs.

Review and Giveaway of Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy Novel The Scarlet Dagger by Krystle Jones




Title: The Scarlet Dagger
Series: The Red Sector Chronicles, #1
Author: Krystle Jones






Official Synopsis
The strength of Sloane’s heart is about to be put to the ultimate test.
After the Eclipse – the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims – everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.

When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life. But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. The city is harboring a devastating secret, one that could change the tide of the war and threaten to destroy everything Sloane has come to believe in.


Heart-stopping action and scorching romance collide in this dystopian thriller

My Review
This book in three words: Suspenseful, Thrilling, unputdownable

I didn't know what to expect when I started this book being that it is from a new author. What I didn't expect was a book that would quickly become one of my favorite YA novels.

The book follows Sloane, a teenage girl turned vampire hunter that is on a search for her twin brother who is presumed dead. After the Eclipse vampires took over her neighborhood and forced the community to run for their lives and rebuild while putting their old neighborhood under locked and key. It is now known as the Red Sector. Feeling as though her brother is still alive she sneaks away and heads straight for the Red Sector - what she finds changes her life forever. She is attacked and turned into the very thing she hates - a vampire. What is even more surprising is that she still feel, looks and acts like herself. The things that attacked are nothing like the strand of vampire she has become. Waking up in vampire society, she learns that everything is not so black and white and the ones she vowed to kill may be the ones that save her life. When the world as you knew it is turned upside down - who do you trust?

Sloane is bad-ass, snarky, smart, tough and all kinds of funny. She is also determined and you better watch out if you stand in her way. When she becomes a vampire by mysterious and sexy Aden, she doesn't really know what to think, but one thing is for sure - she is not walking into anything blindly. She questions everything and goes against authority aka Aden. She has a love/hate relationship with Aden and you don't really know who to trust until the end. Aden and Sloane's chemistry is through the roof, but you can't help but feel conflicted for your feelings with her because of the people and life she left behind because he decided to turn her. Nothing is simple in Sloane's worked. You will be wondering who Sloan can trust, who is after her and what it is the other vampires are hiding from her. This mystery will lead to a major cliffhanger that will have you screaming for book 2. The action is non-stop, the mysteries are endless and the twists and turns will give you whiplash that you actually don't mind guessing.

I loved this book which is why I added it in my Top 25 books of 2011. It is a non-stop thrill ride filled with action, romance and danger.

This book is rated 5 fangs!

When she is attacked and turned into the very thing she loathes she finds that life is not so black and white. Who can you turn to when no one is what they seem? This book is AMAZING! Read my full review tomorrow!

Now for the lady behind The Scarlet Dagger, here is Krystle Jones!

Tell us about yourself.
I’ve been involved in the arts my entire life. When I was little, my dream was to be an animator. I took art classes, was active in my school’s art club (all the way through high school), and drew comics in my free time. But art – nor writing – was what I ended up majoring in. I graduated a few months ago with a Masters in Flute, an instrument I’m die-hard passionate about. I still teach and play, writing either of a morning or at night, when my creativity seems to be at its peak. Let’s see. I also got engaged this past July to a wonderful man I plan on marrying in the Summer. =)

How did you start your career as a writer?
I’ve been writing stories my whole life, though I never really considered going after it as a career until about 2 years ago. When I was really young, I’d scribble out these little stories on notepad paper, draw some illustrations, and staple them all together to make “a real book”. In middle school, I was actively involved in some play-by-email rpg’s, where each person gets to play a character and write from that character’s perspective. Each member of the cast submits entries each week to help move the story along. It was a lot of fun!

As for a career, I had a dream one night about a blonde girl trying to get out of a burning castle. I didn’t know what her name was, but I knew she was a princess. I thought that was interesting, and it certainly wouldn’t have been the first vivid dream I’ve had, so I didn’t think anything of it.
Until I dreamed it again, and again, and again.

The idea wouldn’t go away! Finally, I resorted to writing the ideas that came in the dream down on paper, which became the notes for my first novel, a YA epic fantasy called Veiled Innocence. I had so much fun – despite the setbacks with that book – that I committed to learning everything I could about writing fiction and reading everything I could get my hands on in the YA market.

Where did you get the idea for The Scarlet Dagger (The Red Sector Chronicles series) from?
The Scarlet Dagger was actually the book I was never going to write. I told myself, “There are too many vampire books on the market as is, you should just leave it alone.” Then, like many of my stories first appear, a character popped into my head one day at work (I have ample time for day dreaming). I knew her personality, and just couldn’t get the idea out of my head that she was supposed to be a vampire hunter. So, with no intention of writing an actual book, I sat down and “played around” with the idea one afternoon, trying to come up ways to make the book different from the slew of other vampire books out there. I suppose what I ended up with was borrowing several ideas and creating this clusterthing of different genres (paranormal romance, urban fantasy, dystopian). The more I figured out about the book, the more I wanted to write it. So I did.

I recently wrote an article about my love for bad-ass heroines which is why I love Sloane. She is tough, smart, sassy, yet perfectly flawed. Which character is your favorite and why?
Hmmm… I’m not really sure I have a favorite in this series. Sloane’s perspective was fun to write, but I honestly wouldn’t be able to peg any of them as an absolute preference over the others.

Which character are you most like?
I’m probably a weird mixture of Sloane and Rook. Depending on who I’m around, I tend to behave a little differently. Like, for example, I have an odd sense of humor that’s borderline dry and a little quirky. If I’m around strangers, I’ll be more soft spoken and reserved in my opinions, watching them and seeing if they’re just as quirky as me. The more I get to know them, the more I open up. That’s when Sloane’s traits of being a little bolder and more passionate about certain things come to the front. I will say, though, I’ve never had a problem being “shy” when it comes to performing on the flute or writing. In real life, I share the aspect with Rook in that we both prefer to kind of be “in the background.”

Who are some of your favorite authors?
I love the world building and colorful writing styles of Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey series) and Samantha Young (Smokeless Fire). I love the easy grace of Sarra Cannon’s (PeachvilleRichelle Mead (Succubus series, Vampire Academy series) is a favorite of mine. Another author with a voice I really like is Kait Nolan (Red). I also love Melissa Marr’s (Wicked Lovely series) dark, delicious plots. Kristin Cashore’s (Graceling) prose is simple and elegant, and I also adore Heather Dixon’s (Entwined) beautiful writing. I’ve also read almost everything by Robin McKinley (Beauty, The Outlaws of Sherwood, The Blue Sword, The Hero and the Crown, Sunshine). I think she’s brilliant.

What books are you reading now?
I tend to read multiple books at once, though I try to limit it to no more than 2 or 3. Right now, I’m deep into the finale of one of my favorite YA series, The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa. From all the buzz about Clockwork Prince, I’ve also finally picked up City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. (I know, I’m late to the game. Don’t judge me! haha)

Are we going to see more of the mortals, specifically Leo?
Oh, yes. Leo is going to have a lot more “page time” in Dark Horizons. McGuinness is also going to be making a reappearance, as well as Sloane’s mother. There will also be another Black Cross Guild hunter, a girl named Arika, who will become a bit of a PITA for Sloane.

There were so many twists and turns and I could never guess what was going to happen next I loved it! How did you keep track of everything without giving the secrets away?
A really solid outline. I can’t stress to new writers enough how important it is to thoroughly outline your story before writing it. It’ll save you a ton of time in the revision process, as well as allowing you to “test drive” your concept and spot any potential conflicts before committing to a story arc. (Pantsters, I know you’re “booing” me for that!)

Are you working on any other projects we should watch out for?
Right now, my main project is wrapping up my gothic fairy tale retelling of Snow White, A White So Red. Snow White will be my first “stand alone”. I’ve done quite a few revisions, so it’ll hopefully be out early January so I can get to work again on finalizing my outline for Dark Horizons.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Committing to it every day, and not letting frustrations or life get in the way, which is hard sometimes. Editing is always a hard process for me. I have to go through something at least 3 or 4 times myself, in multiple media (.mobi, MSWord, print) before letting anyone else read it. Then it’s another round of revisions after CP’s and betas give me their feedback, and another read-through after that to make sure it all makes sense and flows together. I can be impatient sometimes, especially in that home stretch of “almost-done-but-not-quite-there.” That’s the hardest part for me, I think.

When is book two coming out?!
Sadly, I don’t think it’ll be January, like I had planned. It’s looking a bit more like April. I work a full time job outside of writing – which I hope to make my FT job this year! – and I’ve had a few other things spring up recently that are demanding more of my time. It’s just the way things are right now. But, I am about halfway through writing my outline for book two, with the hopes of having it finalized by the time I publish Snow White so I can immediately start working on it. I do plan on giving updates on the book’s progress on Facebook and Twitter, and I always keep a progress meter on my blog, if readers are interested (right hand sidebar). And, I plan on inviting some other YA authors for some guest posts to promote some books I’ve read recently that I’ve absolutely been blown away by that I think my readers will enjoy. While you’re waiting for Dark Horizons, I can certainly recommend awesome reading material. =)

What do you do when you are not writing?
I play the flute and the piccolo. Of course, I love reading, as well as watching movies. I catch up with my online comics, The Way to Your Heart by Emily Muto, The Dreamer by Lora Innes, and Red String by Gina Biggs. All of these comics can be found online and read for free! (Though donating or buying the paperbacks is encouraged.) And, of course, I spend time with my fiance. =)

If you could be a supernatural being or possess any power, what would it be?
I’d like Nightcrawler’s ability of winking in and out of places, being able to appear anywhere. I’m constantly running “a little late”. This power would be awesome because 1) I could maximize my time; and 2) well, I’d never be late.
Time control would be cool, too, like that guy from Heroes.
Totally random question: what is your favorite pizza topping?
Probably peppers. I love the taste of them, so long as they’re not too hot, ahaha. I’ve never had much of an appetite for burn-your-tongue-off spicy things.

Tell the readers what to expect when reading one of your books.
Expect something darker, with a mix of a little bit of everything: romance, mystery, suspense, drama, angst, humor, and maybe even a pinch of horror. There will always be fantasy present, whether it be urban or epic. I have somewhat eclectic tastes when it comes to “entertainment” (music, movies, books), and I think my varied tastes reflects itself in my writing. I write to entertain, to give readers a place they can go for a few hours to escape from their worries. At least, that’s why I read, so I try to reciprocate.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you for supporting us authors, and giving us the gift of your time. I mean that with my whole heart.

Putting yourself out there is a very scary thing. As an author, you work and work and work on something, tear it apart in revisions, publish it, and hope the world likes it before you do it all over again. It lights a little fire inside me whenever someone tells me they enjoyed my stories, and it gives me strength to keep fighting the obstacles thrown my way and keep trying because there’s someone out there who wants to read my stories. You readers are a precious gift, and specifically, I can’t thank you enough for taking a chance on my work, and the work of any debut author. Thank you for giving us a chance, and allowing us to do what we love to do: entertain.

I’m active on both Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads, so if you’re on any of those sites, I invite you to drop by my profile and say “hi!” Same goes for my blog. I like discussing things with readers and other writers, so if you have anything to you’d like to say about any of my posts, please don’t hesitate in commenting! Lastly – and I promise I’ll shut up – I have an email newsletter I send out infrequently when I have a new release, contest, giveaway, or some other special offer. If you want to be notified when Dark Horizons goes on sale, I invite you to please consider signing up. You can learn more about it on my website.

Thank you so much, Evie, for having me!

Paromantasy's Top 25 Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Books of 2011


2011 was a great year for us Paromantasy fans. Indie authors really came out swinging, making better books then some of the traditionally published fan favorites. Indie veterans such as HP MalloryToni LoTempio, Felicity Heaton,  and Stacey Kennedy had books that were blow-your-mind-away amazing. Stacey Kennedy released an astounding 10 books from various series and each one I reviewed received a 5 fang review. Is that because I am uber-nice and hate to give bad reviews? No way. It is because her books make are like addicting candy - they are addicting, bad for you, and leaves you yearning for more, as is the case with the other authors on the list. The books are the kind that leave you thinking about them long after you put down their novels.

Newcomers to the Paromantasy world also stepped up the competition with truly amazing series. This includes B Jane Lawson with her action-packed book To the Cliffside, and Traci Slatton with her dystopian romance Fallen. There was also PA Lupton and Camilla Chafer that captured readers hearts with their action packed, romance filled series. The list goes on.

With so many great books, one thing that I noticed was that some of my favorite authors and series fell flat this year. Richelle Meade's highly anticipated release of Succubus Revealed was lackluster. Claudia Gray's Afterlife fell a bit flat compared to its predecessors. Patricia Briggs River Marked was another less than stellar release from an otherwise great series.

One famed author who continues to get it right is Rachel Caine. Her 11th installment of the Morganville Vampire Series, Last Breath, is even better that the first. Her ability to still leave readers shocked after 11 books is nothing short of amazing.

As you can see, us Paromantasy fans were in for a real treat in 2011. Here is to more paranormal romance and urban fantasy books that will fill our lives with action, our hearts with love, and send our imagines soaring!

Now let's give it up for Paromantasy's Top 25 Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy book of 2011.

Review and Trailer of Paranormal Romance Novel Heart of Darkness by Felicity Heaton




Title: Heart of Darkness
Author: Felicity Heaton





Official Synopsis
A vampire prince on a four hundred year old mission to avenge his murdered sister...

Aleksandr Nemov won’t stop until the last of the vampire hunter’s progeny is wiped from the Earth. Each kill has stolen a piece of his humanity, pushing him towards the black abyss all vampires hold within their hearts. Now he is teetering on the edge, close to devolving into a beast, and time is running out as he tracks the last hunter to Prague. There he finds a beautiful woman who could be his one chance for salvation, but is it already too late for him?

A vampire guard who will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves...

Elise is dedicated to her duty. It’s the only thing she has left. All that changes when she meets Aleksandr in Prague and her master grants him permission to stay at her bloodline’s mansion. She knows all about Aleksandr but none of it prepares her for how she feels when the legendary prince’s hunt becomes one for her heart. Elise battles him with all of her strength but can she stop herself from falling for the handsome hunter? When he reveals the depth of the corruption in his soul, will she have the strength to face the pain in her past and do whatever it takes to save him?

My Review
Heart of Darkness is a must-read, action-packed, romance-filled book that will have your heart melting, your adrenaline pumping and have you both laughing and crying throughout the book. I am a huge FE Heaton fan and I mus say that this is her best book on the market! It is haunting, captivating and will have your inner romantic swooning and your inner action lover fist pumping.

After the death of his sister, Alexsandr vows to take revenge on the vampire hunters responsible. He risks his life to avenge his sister and keep his kind safe, even at the risk of his humanity. When it seems that he will be lost to his beast, he meets Elise and his whole reason for living changes.

Elise life is her duty to her people. Unlike other females, she lives the life of a soldier: fighting, obeying orders and living to the code of her people. She has no one and her duty fills hat void. When she meets Alexsandr, she immediately goes on the defensive. She knows  his kind: a rich womanizer who always gets what he wants. Problem is, she can't help her attraction for him. As she gets to know him she realizes he is not what he seems. He is as much alone as she is and he is on the brink of losing himself as well.

As they grow closer and the love they feel reaches new heights Alexsandr must decide whether to keep his vow to avenge his sister or fight for his humanity and be with Elise.

Elise know his struggles and tries to save Alexsandr from himself. Will she be able to save him or will she lose it all trying?

This book is amazing! The anguish that both Alexsandr and Elise go through in their lives and when they come to precipse where they must choose each other or the lives they worked so hard building will leave you in tears. Alexsandr's pursuit of Elise and her attempt at resisting him will have you laughing to the point of tears. The danger and action they face as they fight the vampire hunters will have your heart pounding. What I am trying to say is: get ready for an emotional roller coaster ride that you will want to take over and over again!

This is a must-read! Heart of Darkness is rated 5 fangs!

Review of Paranormal Romance Novel Supernaturally Kissed by Stacey Kennedy




Title: Supernaturally Kissed
Series: Frostbite, book one
Author: Stacey Kennedy






Official Synopsis
Ghosts harass and annoy Tess Jennings to save their souls. Sometimes she helps them. Other times she ignores them. But one ghost will give her no choice.


Kipp McGowen, a cop with the Memphis Police Department, will stop at nothing to gain her help, including using his ghostly charms to seduce her.


Tess must help solve the five year old cold case of Hannah Reid, because solving the case will save Kipp. But a bigger problem presents itself. Tess is falling in love with a ghost. Now she must decide.


Keep Kipp forever or find the killer…

My Review
This book in four words: Suspenseful, Erotic, Hilarious, Sinful

Supernaturally Kissed is a remake of her original book Stolen Dreams, which I loved. I couldn't imagine how Stacey could possibly make an amazing book even better. Well folks, she did it. This is everything I loved about Stolen Dreams times ten.

I fell in love with Kip and Tess all over again. Ever since an accident that she barely survived from, Tess has been able to see ghosts. She helps them when she feels like it and ignores them when she doesn't. Kipp is a murdered cop set on solving the case of a murdered girl, the same case that got him killed when he almost caught the killer. He is so determined, not even a little thing like death will deter him. He finds Tess and refuses to let her ignore him. She soon finds that this sexy ghost is like no other man she has ever met, both alive and dead. He is insufferable, annoying and sexy as all hell.
