Karen Marie Moning- Dreamfever

Again I just don't know where to start with this book- with each book I fell more in love with this series.  Ok, at the end of the last book Mac was attacked by three, possibly four Dark Princes, (I could explain what the difference between the three and possible fourth is but honestly it would be better if you just read it- lol) She becomes Pri-ya which is a human that is now completely addicted to sex- Fae sex, it is all they want, think about and can do. When she was attacked they sucked her dry of her memories, she knew what was happening to her and tried to stop it but the overwhelming desire to do nothing except have sex was all she could do. Ok let me jump back a little, the LM managed to get the walls down between our world and Faery so Dublin was taken over by the Unseelie, Mac was in hiding in a church on Halloween night, Barrons was off in Scotland trying to keep the walls from coming down and the other sidhe-seers were doing what they could to help protect mankind from the Dark Fae. So the LM and the Dark Princes find Mac, Dani rescues her from them but the Grand Mistress just locks away in the basement because seriously she is not in good shape- major sex on the brain problem. Barrons shows up at the abbey to take her back but he is not alone- he has eight men with him- eight men that are just like him and you know what they are??? No, Me Neither!!! And Damn it I am I NEED to know but I am NOT going searching for it and lalalalalala *plugs ears* don't tell me!! I Love Barrons- this book he was just so..... what is the word I am looking for... he was just everything, yes that works he was just "everything" I wanted him to be. He worked to get Mac back to where she needed to be and I actually liked his methods- haha. So the GM and Mac start to work together but only at the request of the other sidhe-seers, Mac knows she can not trust the old woman. The LM shows up and gives Mac three days to decide what side she is on so after that Barrons makes her stick to his side. LM kidnaps Mac's parents and she has to travel alone to help them, the LM does not want Barrons anywhere near them but something goes wrong and Mac is sent into another realm, she finds Christian who disappeared on Halloween night with Barrons during their ritual. They get separated again and she ends up alone but is saved by a huge beast that protects her until Barrons' "friend" Ryodan comes for her- there is fighting- someone dies, someone goes over a cliff and it ENDED- the damn book just ENDED. OMG I am not sure I can wait until Jan 2011 for the 5th and final book in this series. Jan is a long time for me to keep my ears plugged!!   My Rating: 4.5 to 5

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Bad Moon Rising

Kattalakis is a name that turns heads among the secret realms. It is well known to the Were-Hunters as a part of the ruling council for all of the Katagari and Arcadian. The law enforcing Omegrion council maintains peace between the two bitter enemies to balance the laws of the universe and the powers of the gods. Living in the human world, yet concealing their true nature, many species blend with mankind to form an alliance of composed serenity. For centuries the rules have been clear. Stay with your own kind and species or endure the consequences.
A Katagari werewolf that can transform into a man, Fang Kattalakis carries a dark side of hate and powerful viciousness that is displayed with each step he takes. The only benign emotion he has ever exposed was for his brother and younger sister of his clan. Content to reek as a contaminated soul sated with malice, he has no mercy for any prey that crosses his path.
Aimee Peltier is the only daughter in the immense Peltier family of werebears. Devoted to her family, she assists with the family business but knows the span of time will come when she will be expected to contemplate her duty. As the last of her line, she must mate with a strong blood-lined Katagari werebear and take her rightful place upon the members of the Omegrion council. Yet with the ticking of time she fears the devastating secrets she keeps about her Arcadian soul will destroy her family forever. Being a beautiful woman that shape shifts into a bear is not acceptable in the rich blood-line that she supports.
A prohibited intimacy disentangles their hearts. Away from all eyes, no boundaries are formed as to how much the love flourishes between the heart of Fang and his forbidden Aimee. Denying destiny is a war that can not be won.... 
Denying the love of a lifetime is a war that neither want to fight.

Kresley Cole- Wicked Deeds on a Winters Night

 Bowen MacRieve suffered for 180 yrs after his mate was killed while running from him. He’s a proud Lykae; his clan couldn't understand why he kept living after her death. He spent the entire 180 years looking for a way to bring her back to him. After talking to Nix, the Valkyrie Seer, she told him to join the HIE, a competition between all the Lore’s. She told him if he went there he would find his mate. Mariketa was a witch that felt everyone in her life had throw her away and even though she was destined to be great she wanted to prove herself so she entered the HIE even though she was still mortal. She wore a red cape and a cloaking spell to keep her looks from being seen. She was told 4 years earlier that a warrior would claim her as his and not allow her to be the Queen of the witches, so she hid. Bowen was so determined to win The Key that could send someone back to the past so he could to save Mariah, his mate. He locked Mariketa in a cave where she was held by incubus, he had no idea she couldn’t get out and didn’t know she wasn’t alone in the cave. She told him she could open the wall to get out, then he was locked away for two weeks too but once he learned she was still locked in the cave he went to save her. Then he struck a deal with her because after 180 years she was the only female to make her feel again and he thought she had put a spell on him, so he wanted to enjoy the feeling of her as long as she had him under her spell but then he started to have real feelings that she was his mate. Only problem now is he hated witches and thought maybe she was Mariah reborn... Is she Mariah? Will he be able to accept her for who and what she is? My Rating: 4

Karen Marie Moning- Faefever

On to book three and NO I still don't know what Jericho Barrons is, but I have a few guesses. Mac is still out to get the Lord Master for killing her sister but now she has other things to worry about. She knows that there are others like her but they will not let her join their group, the head Seer, Rowena does not trust Mac and even more so now since Mac brought V'lane into their home. Rowena sent some of the other Seers to hurt or kill Mac and to steal the weapon that she owns. There is still strong sexual tension between Mac and Barrons with nothing coming between the two of them. In this book Mac has three men fighting for her attention and all for either the same reasons or very different reasons- it varies from day to day but it keeps the story interesting. Now Christian is needing Mac's help and of course she doesn't know if she can trust him or not. Barrons and V'lane are both working different angles with Mac but I have to say V'lane is trying really hard to have sex with her. He brings her flowers, chocolate and shifts her away to remote beaches for some good food and tanning. Barrons is teaching her how to hold up against "Voice" , something that the LM was able to use on her last time and she had to do whatever he told her to do. Halloween is a big deal for all sides and when the "good guys" try to keep the wall up all Hell breaks loose. LM takes over and things turn really nasty for Mac. End of the book finally has some sex in it and boy was it wild!  Rating: 4.5

Karen Marie Moning- Bloodfever

LOL, I am still a little confused on what Barron’s could possibly be- ok I admit it- I don’t have a clue yet. I like his character a lot, he’s very dry and his sense of humor though lacking sometimes is kinda funny. Mac is still in Ireland working with Barrons looking for the Sinsar Dubh and for the man that killed her sister. Mac is kidnapped by a vampire who she thought they had previously killed but since he was part human and part Fae all she did was kill the Fae part of him so he was doing nothing but rotting. V’lane showed up again and whisked Mac to Faery for what she thought was just an hour but it was for a month. Barrons was out of his mind crazy with worry while she was gone. The main police inspector that was investigating her sisters murder ended up murdered himself and now the new detective is following Mac wanted answers to what she knows about it. She and Barrons have a lust filled moment where I was hoping they would do something but of course they didn’t. Mac also learns that there are more Sidhe-seers out there and she meets a few. Whenever Mac is near the Sinsar Dubh she passes out because she is filled with good and the book is filled with and made from evil. Mac learns from another of her kind that she and her sister are adopted, she asked her father about it and he admits that it is true. When she doesn’t talk to him in a few days so he flies to Ireland to talk to her. She learns that with the adoption came a few rules and the main rule was that neither of the girls ever be allowed to step foot into Ireland. Mac learns a few more things that confuse her about Barrons and he refuses to answer her questions about what he truly is. At the end of the book I was still confused- lol.   Rating: 4

Karen Marie Moning- Darkfever

Ok I really don't know where to begin with this book, I was not prepared for how this book is written. The main female character talks to the reader some and then tells a story also. MacKayla Lane is a young 22 year old human female from Georgia, when her older sister is murdered while in Ireland, Mac goes in search for answers and revenge. Her only clue to her sisters murder is a very cryptic message left on Mac's cell phone. Once in Ireland Mac talks to all of her sisters professors and friends but no one can give her the answers she needs, so she goes to the police for help. When they don't seem to want to help her she wonders around town and ends up in a book store. While leaving she asked the counter lady about a book her sister mentioned in the message. The mysterious owner of the bookstore comes out to answer a few of her questions. Ok to get more into the story- his name is Jericho Barrons and I can not figure out what the hell he is. He explains to Mac that she is a Sidhe-seer and she is a special human that can see the Fae for what they really are. There are two different kinds of Fae- the Seelie (good) and Unseelie (bad) and she can see both. She also has a special ability to "feel" certain Fae artifacts so Barrons keeps her around to help him locate items. He is also looking for the book that Mac is looking for, it is a special Dark Fae book written over a million years ago by the King of the Unseelie. Barrons and Mac learn that others are after the book also, one being  V'lane who is a Prince from the Seelie side. His look, touch and thoughts are enough to send a woman into intense sexual desires, Mac calls him the "death-by-sex-Fae" and he causes her troubles in public a few times by making her strip down naked. Barrons and Mac find one of the few weapons that can kill a Fae. I seriously don't know who was left with more questions in this book me or Mac- haha. Rating: 4

He knows once he finds his Bride she will make him alive again (sort of), he will be Blooded. This rare breed of Vampires does not take blood from live flesh, thinking this will keep them from becoming Blood lusted. While fighting evil Vampires he spots a woman in a dungeon window and is unable to keep from searching her out. Once his army has won the castle he finds her in hopes she is his Bride. She is very different from other women he has known and he has never seen a creature like her. Myst is a Valkyrie and she isn't forth coming with answers. So Wroth is forced to leave her in the cell. He’s later told by his King that he needs to learn what she is so he called her up to his room, at first Myst is very flirtatious and isn't ashamed of her body even after being in a dirty cell for 4 days she offers to share a shower with Wroth. No matter how much he would like too, he refuses because he doesn't want her to see his flaccid penis, which hasn't been hard for 300 yrs. It didn't bother him before, but he was hoping Myst was his Bride and he would know instantly if she was because his heart would start to beat again, he would take a breath and he would need to claim her (sexually). A Human turned Vampire needs his Bride to become a Full vampire making him stronger and alive. After her stripping in front of him and grabbing his soft penis with no response he knows she’s not the one. Unsure of herself, Myst climbs in Wroth arms and falls asleep, when he wakes he knows it’s time for answers and even though they got close while holding each other through the night he still needs answers for his King. So if Myst isn't willing to tell him what she is then he will have no choice but to torture her. Once Myst is returned to the cell her feelings are hurt and she realizes that the man whose arms she slept in all night will torture her and her emotions escape her, her tears fall freely. Once seeing this Wroth starts to feel hard pounding taking a few minutes to realize it’s his heart and she is his Bride only after she showed her true self did his body respond to hers. With this knowledge it is very hard to control himself, but he still does, preparing her for his huge size, seconds after giving her orgasms from his fingers and his kisses. Her sisters, the Valkyrie, show up to save her and they are enemies to all Vampires. They plan to kill Wroth but Myst tells her sisters it would be worst to leave him in need for her instead of killing him. Five years have passed and Wroth has been aroused painfully the whole time looking for his Bride, the only person that can release the pressure of his need. Will He Find Myst? Will she help him?   4 rating

Gena Showalter- The Darkest Lie

Book 6-Gideon, Keeper of Lies and Scarlet, Keeper of Nightmares, by far was my favorite book out of the series. It has everything from love, pain, happiness, to whoring lol. Gideon’s demon Lies will weaken him with unbelievable pain if he ever speaks the truth, unlike other Lords his demon doesn't really talk to him, but he always sensed it. But it wasn't like another being inside him like the other Lords, so Gideon was the funniest Lord to try to understand, if he wanted to “Kill you” he had to say "I want to Kiss you". After Cronus gave the Lords a list of names of other Demon possessed Gods and Goddesses, they went in search for them. Scarlet didn't want to be involved and told the Lords so. The Lords felt she was too dangerous and feared she would be taken by the Hunters and used against them. So they had two options they put her in the dungeon in hopes they could convince her to join them or they would have to kill her. Scarlet being the Keeper of Nightmares reached out to a sleeping and injured Gideon and demanded he come see her. When he did he noticed that she had a tattoo of the words TO PART IS TO DIE just like his, so he wanted to know why they shared the same tattoo. Scarlet wasn't talking and she wanted to be alone after she was sure it was Gideon, she made a deal with him, she would tell him one thing about their relationship if he left her alone. Of course Gideon said NO DEAL.. which really meant DEAL! So she shocked him by saying they were married, Gideon couldn't remember her and they both believed that someone had screwed with his memories. They set out to find the truth, after getting close Scarlet finally showed Gideon all her memories through a dream, he learned that they had been married and had a son Steel, who was killed in front of Scarlet's eyes. Gideon felt her pain as if it was his own. After confronting her step-father Cronus he told her she never had a child and he would have known because the shared a jail cell the whole time they were imprisoned. So now that they learned it was Scarlet’s memories that were screwed with instead of Gideon’s. Will they be able to find the truth? Will Scarlet be able to get over all the pain she THOUGHT Gideon had caused her? Will Gideon learn the truth of their relationship and learn to love her anyways?.. Well I hope so..  Rating: 5
