True of Blood: Book 1 of The Witch Fairy Series by Bonnie Lamer
At the start, this read like a young adults fantasy novel. The teenage heroine had just discovered she had two kinds of magic.

But as I read more and more, it turned in to a slushy novel of the romance but no actual sex type found in the Mills and Boon series. The only twist was that the heroine was more powerful than the dishy man, instead of being the helpless waif rescued by him.

As that kind of novel, it is probably OK. But if you want a fantasy novel, look elsewhere.
Alaskan Fire (Guardians of the First Realm Book 1) by Sara King

Although this book is often put in the fantasy category, it is not. It is a Mills and Boon type of romance, with long passages about longing looks, male domination and a women who sometimes submits - so long that they interrupt the fantasy plot of a probably not human woman meeting a wereverine in an occult Alaska. I gave up reading it after 2 hours, when the plot kept getting stuck on non-fantasy stuff.

So if you are looking for Mills and Boon stuff, go ahead and read it. But if you want a good fantasy plot, avoid this book.
