4 out of 6 ain't bad

This is quite a steal for 49p!
The Wolf Within - I simply loved. The first sentence or two actually had me thinking this is going to be a cheap, predictable read. It only took me to finish the next chapter or two to realize how very wrong I had been! I loved the characters, they really came alive and were strong individuals. It was quite a different premise to most paranormal fiction out there that I've read. Thoroughly engrossing, and I can't wait for the sequel to come out later this year. Highly recommend this one!
The Vampire Affair - was very much chick lit first, paranormal anything second. It was however very entertaining, funny and enjoyable to read. You really can escape into another person along with the leading lady. Relaxed, easy fun.
The Dark's Mistress - was just too dark for me to enjoy. It was depressing and made me feel somewhat anxious, and I was quickly skimming through it all, just waiting to get to the end. Yes, I suppose there's a happy ending, which might make it worthwhile for some. But it was too bleak for my liking.
A Taste For Passion - was sort of ok. It felt very immature to me though, as if the main character, Rana, was a teenager or something (she isn't). Which made any intimate moments she had with Lucian seem inappropriate, oddly. I did like Lucian and his best bud though. *Spoilerish* Saying that, I wasn't keen on his reaction to the Elizabeth to Rana transition. The favoritism felt wrong, when they're supposed to be the same person anyway. Why should his feelings change if they were true in the first place? This one I also skimmed through a bit. Good for young readers, I'd say.
Captured - so so great! I already did a review for it on its own, so I won't go on and on here. I absolutely loved it though - a very beautiful story, beautifully written. Read it!
Paris After Dark - was last but not least, by any means. The only fault I have with this, it is far too short! I wish this had been a full blown novel, or even a series (I did look, it's just this one). Absolutely loved Rachel Chang. Not a meek, weak little woman, the likes of which is written into far too many a book these days. Gabriel was great too. Not the perfectly symmetrical model we also see too many times in literature. Well written, great story. Quite refreshing to find writing of this quality in the genre of paranormal romance.
