TABT…The Lure of the Wolf, by Jennifer St. Giles

Half wolf, half man, Aragon has abandoned his brethren to repay a dept of honor; he is sworn to kill a rogue Blood Hunter, though exacting revenge will doom him to a ghostly existence trapped between two worlds.  But when a mortal woman unexpectedly calls him to her side, the heat of her soft flesh arouses a hunger in him that threatens to complicate his mission.  Dr. Annette Batista, a dedicated healer, is determined to find her missing sister.  With the amulet found at the site of her sister’s disappearance, she unwittingly summons a shadowy warrior.  She wonders if she can trust this powerful male named Aragon, who claims he can vanquish her sister’s captor-the very monster he’s vowed to destroy.  Or is Annette blinded by her shocking passion for the most alluring, mysterious man she’s ever seen?

A great addition to St Giles’ new paranormal series.  This book takes us even deeper into the politics of the “other” side, showing us how Aragon has eschewed his birthright as a point of honor.  The romance between Aragon and Annette is scorchingly hot.  I liked the fact that Annette was a strong enough heroine to deal with all the complexities of world with quick reflexes and an even quicker mind.  She’s a heroine I can get behind.  And Aragon?  In a word…yummy!  If you like your paranormals hot, fast-paced and full of intrigue, you can’t go wrong with St Giles’ books!

New Reviews and general crapola…

So I’m still in the middle of the move (actually *really* in the move now…we close on the new house today!!!), but got some new reviews this weekend that totally floated my boat, so I thought I’d share!

First off is a 5 Angel review from Fallen Angels for Saints:

For readers that love a great fantasy, then The  Saints Of Midland is the perfect choice. Amanda doesn’t mind voicing her opinions and no matter what outlook she reaches for in life, she loves her brother and will do anything for his safety. I could sense that even though she is spirited, deep down she holds her fears inside not wishing others to see that she, at times, is just as fragile as she is strong. Josh oozes with sex appeal, and all the right ingredients, for a great hero. Both refreshing characters often show signs of being vulnerable making them real, in this magical tale as they sacrifice much. T. L. Schaefer creativity crafts a momentous fast-paced story that is fantastically detailed, and keeps the reader focused until the conclusion. This is one daring journey that the reader comes along for the unforgettable ride with passion, romance and magic all rolled into one.

The next was 4 Hearts from My Romance Story (and I’m totally jazzed because they GOT IT!!!)

If you’re an erotic fan who likes the lovers engaged in a kinky BDSM scene by the second chapter, Redemption won’t really satisfy. Ramsay doesn’t tack on a plot to her sex scenes. The book works quite the other way around, and so the love that develops between the characters is much more real and satisfying. And by the time Ramsay gets to a sex scene, it’s passionate and romantic. 

DAMN!  Talk about totally making my weekend!! Especially when I’m surrounded by boxes and boxes…waaay more than I originally thought we’d have.  Sigh.  But in happy news, we attended the moving sale the folks we bought the house from held, and bought an absolutely gorgeous antique sideboard we’re going to use as a bar until we buy the real deal.  Oh, and an awesome rocking chair I can actually get my hips through!  LOL!
