I really liked this book... it was suspensful and adventurous... and it's also a test of love... the book is only one of the many books in the Nightwalkers series... I plan to read all of the books... and hopefully they'll be as good as this one... this shows how love is stronger than anyone's culture... just read it and find out...

The Darkest Kiss by Keri Arthur
The Darkest Kiss

dark_sid_chick, June 24, 2008

This book was a good mysterious book for my taste...

Riley is part werewolf and part vampire... she works for the Directorate to solve nonhuman murders and other things that the human police don't want to deal with...

Riley goes on a dangerous asignment to find a murder that takes the shape as a cat... and she has no idea how to find her... then there is a phyco vamp running around killing people as well...

But during her manhunt she runs into an old flame... Quinn... he is the one vampire she can't control herself around... he has done his share of lying and killing... but so has she...

This book will take you on a ride that will turn out different than you think... it had me wanting more but in the end I was satisfied...

The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks
The Guardian

dark_sid_chick, June 24, 2008

This book really captured my heart and soul...

From the very beginning when Julie lost her husband Jim, it was tugging at my heart strings...

As a young widow in a small town in North Carolina... the only family she has there is her dog Singer... she got him the first Christmas that her husband wasn't there... to her surprise a note came with the puppy...

Then a few years after Jim's death Julie is ready to get back in the dating world... she goes on a couple of dates and they were a bust... then she meets Richard and goes on some dates with him...

Oh the other hand... Mike... who has been her best friend for a really long time... and had been Jim's best firend all through high school and until his death... has been in love with Julie for the longest time... when he finds out that she's dating again he tries to get up the nerve to ask her out but doesn't...

Then when Richard goes out of town for a little while Mike and Julie go on a date... and come to find out Julie realized she liked Mike more than Richard...

And when Julie tells Richard she doesn't want to see him anymore he starts stalking her... he becomes jealous of her and Mike's relationship... and Richard becomes out of control soon after Mike and Julie get close and fall in love... it all takes a turn for the worse...

In the end I didn't know who was going to win... but it'll surprise you when it ends the way it does... it's an intruging story of love and that there are acctually people out there that go through what Julie went through...

Fallen by Erin Mccarthy
Fallen

dark_sid_chick, June 24, 2008

I loved this book!!!

The fact that I have always had a thing for the paranormal and angels... the book kind of confused me on the first couple of chapters... but after I understood what was going on I finally got hooked...

Gabriel is the fallen angel... he was sent to watch... but he wasn't prepared for all of the emotions that the humans put off... and he eventually turned to drinking and drugs to escape the emotions... he also had a mistress, Anne, that he visited on a very regular basis... and every night thing... after some things happen between them he drinks and drugs up he passes out... when he wakes he finds her dead... and all the evidence points to him... but he doesn't remember anything...

Then some years later another woman named Sarah Michaels comes into play... she is the great-great granddaughter of Gabriel's mistress Anne... Sarah is a forensic scientist and Gabriel got in touch with her after her mother's death...

After leaving her home in Florida Sarah heads to New Orleans to meet Gabriel... when she arrives she isn't prepared for what is lying ahead... she doesn't prepare for her feelings that she has toward Gabriel and she isn't prepared for the truth either...

The deaths of Anne and Sarah's mother are exactly alike, the weapon used and the way they were killed... Sarah and Gabriel team up to solve the murder... and when Sarah arrives Gabriel isn't prepared to tell her anything about his past or what he was... but after time passes he has a harder time controlling himself... he doesn't want to touch Sarah... and he hates lying to her...

But when it came down to it... Gabriel fell in love with Sarah... and she fell for him... in the end it's a shocker to see how it all turns out and what happens between them... between the murder cases, the other demons, and where they stand in their relationship...

After I read this book I was completely head over heals for the paranormal romances... the suspense, romance, and everything else that comes with it is page turner for me...
