Winter Born by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Pandora is desperate for help so heads to Atlanta after she hears that the city is holding its annual Scifi convention, an event which Acheron regularly attends. Although an Arcadian pantheress, she is barely controlling her animal instincts whilst in heat and is determined to return to her own time, a future from which she was snatched from. Unfortunately she encounters 4 virile Katagari panthers and once they get a whiff of her scent it proves difficult to get rid of them.

Born Of The Night by Amanda Ashley
Lady Shannara is taken as a hostage by Lord Reyes in revenge for the murder of his father. Yet despite his vicious threats, no harm befalls Shannara and she finds herself drawn to the darkly handsome man who carries a macabre secret.

Make It Last Forever by L A Banks
Rider is a believer of free love with no emotional commitments until he meets a mysterious and beautiful young woman named Tara. After telling him he is a Guardian he finds himself offering her his protection from some nasty bloodsuckers as she travels to her Cherokee grandmother for a cure for the illness that plagues her. Yet as the journey lengthens, Tara finds herself hungry and the vein in Rider's neck looks mighty tempting.

This book earned three stars from me only, and exlusively because of Dante Pontis, the hero of Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Winter Born". What can I do, I'm a sucker for Hunters - Were, Dream, and specially Dark ones.
The L.A. Banks' story just made me skip pages, but the other two were passable.
Nothing to miss, there.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like paranormal romance, but not ordinarily stuff that involves werewolves or vampires, etc. In paranormal romance I usually prefer faeries and mostly urban fantasy fiction. I picked up this book at the library on a whim - Lori Handeland made me a convert, mainly to her fiction.

Her story "Red Moon Rising" is a tale about a super secret group of government agents called the Jager-Sucher - they hunt down and kill monsters. Mix that with a writer suffering a terrible bout of writer's block living in an isolated cabin and a skin walker/werewolf who wants her dead and you have one suspense loaded tale.

What I most enjoyed, however, was the first person snappy, sarcastic writing. I don't normally like first person stories, but Ms. Handeland pulls it off with such skill that you can picture the witty main character with great clarity. I actually laughed out loud quite a few times over the sarcasm and whitty dialog.

While I didn't enjoy all the stories in this book as a whole, I enjoyed this one story so much that I looked at her Moon series (more Jager-Sucher tales) and read excerpts here on Amazon. Having found that they are written the same way, I straight up ordered the first two books in the series. I can't wait to read those books and will likely order and read the entire series in the near future.
