I love the Coveted series about Natalya, an OCD werewolf ‘ultimate underdog’ heroine, who fights through panic attacks, lack of confidence, universal disapproval and truly scare-worthy enemies to get the job done.  This is the final story in the Coveted trilogy and I was sad to see it come yet I was eager to see what Nat’s last paranormal adventure… Read more »

Afternoon Delight: Twelfth Night by Deanna Raybourn

I love husband and wife detective teams particularly those set in historical times.  Quite addicted really!  This short novella is from one of my all-time favorite series, Lady Jane Grey, in which married pair Brisbane and Julia work their way through many a dark, gritty story.  This particular installment in the series however, is of the lighter variety.  Like other… Read more »

This series just keeps building on itself so that each new Survivor story is as good as the last with each new couple fighting different and yet similar barriers.  This is Ben’s story and that of the woman perfectly suited for him.  The book was all the enjoyable, engaging things that I have come to expect from the author over… Read more »
