a triple treat from a trio of paranormal romance stars 29. August 2012
Von Virginia Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"Born to Bite" is a sensual supernatural anthology featuring stories from talented authors Hannah Howell, Diana Cosby, and Erica Ridley. Early 1500's Scotland is the setting for Hannah Howell's "Dark Secret". Murdina Dunbar, homeless and without family, travels far to find her aunt and uncle. Hoping to meet up with some cousins too, she finds her aunt and uncle have passed away, and all her hopes for a family reunion are buried along with them in a cold, windy graveyard. With nowhere else to turn, Murdina accepts a position as a maid in the local keep, working hard and trying to find out about her cousin Adeline. Chosen to be the personal maid for the handsome and mysterious Sir Baldwin, Murdina finds herself irresistibly drawn to the darkly appealing nobleman. Sir Baldwin is actually Gillanders MacNachton, staying at the keep in hopes of finding out who murdered a member of his clan. Gillanders is no mere mortal, and Murdina has a secret of her own: she can read the thoughts of others. Realizing Murdina is his fated mate, he wonders if she will accept his true nature. Others do not wish for a happy ending for these two, and much mayhem is about in the keep. Gillanders and Murdina are more connected than they could have imagined, and it is a perilous bond indeed. Medieval Scotland is the era for Diana Cosby's "Highland Vampire". Drawn to a ceremonial stone circle by a compelling voice invading her mind, Rowan Campbell discovers a dying warrior. Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven, has been betrayed and left to burn in the searing rays of the rising sun. Unable to resist his allure, Rowan leads Aedan to the safety and darkness of a cave, and later allows him to drink a few drops of her blood to restore his strength. With the first taste of the heady and precious life-giving elixir, Aedan knows that he has found his destined mate. However, they learn that Rowan is a witch and the granddaughter of the Fairy Queen of the Underworld, and their union is not only forbidden, it is dangerous. Becoming a vampire could prove fatal to Rowan, and Aedan's enemies will do all in their power to destroy the Laird and his Lady Love. Erica Ridley's "Never Been Bitten" takes place in England at the twilight of the Regency Era. Miss Elspeth Ramsay, seemingly spinsterish societal miss, is also a paranormal investigator. Accepting assignments from the wealthy and willy-nilly, she finds herself at loss when faced with a genuine vampire. Martainn Macane, known as "Cain", is a highland warrior on a mission to find the runaway bride of his laird. The search has lasted for over two hundred years, and Cain has become known as "Lord Lovenip", an "is he or isn't he" rogue known for leaving lovenips on the necks of society beauties--all the better to seek out the elusive bridal escapee. When Elspeth bites him, all preconceived notions fly away on night-wings, and Elspeth will soon learn that her life has been a lie, and she is far from a normal young lady. Can it be that Cain will find the love and happiness so long denied him as he closes in on his prey? After reading "Born to Bite" you will definitely sleep with a nightlight burning--not because you are afraid of the dark, but because you are hoping for a nibble!

Everything I am is everything you are... 29. August 2012
Von Mary Gramlich - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Rowan Campbell had been labeled a witch by those who only believed what they wanted. Rowan was told that vampires were mythical until the day she saved Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven from imminent death.

Aedan believes Rowan to be his mate regardless that she is human and he is determined to protect and save her. There is nothing simple and uncomplicated about their relationship and the longer they are together the more issues arise. Everything stands in the way of their love including the vampire and Fey community of which Rowan it seems belongs.

Rowan craves Aedan's love and he in return knows his existence is futile without her. However, those out to stop the relationship and their entire known life will not want stop hunting until they are destroyed. But is the enemy from the outside or could it be from within?

Diana Cosby writes a colorful, romantic, and action packed story. Ms Cosby leaves the reader with the feeling of overwhelming literary satisfaction.

More like a nibble... 30. August 2012
Von Jskinz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The first story was interesting. the phonetic use of the Scottish accent got "verra" annoying after a while. I am not a fan, but it may not bother you. It could be a good series, but I am not all that inspired to find out. It kind of reminded me of Christine Feehan's work.The second story moved ridiculously fast. Way to much information and not enough development of characters. But at least the Scottish accent was toned down. I don't see myself reading anything from this author. And last but in no way least, the third story is my favorite. It takes place in England so although our vampire is technically Scottish there are no Brogues to speak of. Quick, witty, and silly this is definitely a series I can see myself getting into. It had a definite Alexia Tarabotti feel to it, and since Gail Carriger has ended that series this may just be able to fill that hole for me.

entertaining historical vampire romances 28. August 2012
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"Never Been Bitten" by Erica Riley. In 1830 England, Lydia Breckenridge hires Ellie Ramsey to prove that Martainn "Cain" Macane is a vampire. They dance and he goes to take a nip, but she bites him instead. Cain is shocked by her action and more so when she vanishes with no one remembering seeing her except Cain.

"Dark Secret" by Hannah Howell. In 1514, orphaned Murdina Dunbar learns she has a cousin Adeline who took a bairn and fled into the hills to be with the MacNachton clan. However, she finds no new clues so she stops at Dunnantinny Keep to earn money as a maid and seek new information. Laird Sir Ranald Dumfries directs Murdina to spy on guest Sir Gillanders Baldwin who he thinks is a MacNachton demon. Unable to resist Gillanders kisses her and believes she is his mate as he stalks Ranald for killing his cousin

"Highland Moon" by Diana Cosby. In 1297, healer Rowan Campbell flees from men calling her a witch. She helps a man trapped inside of a stone circle. Aedan MacGregor says he is a poisoned vampire who needs to drink her blood, which she reluctantly allows. Tasting the blood, he knows she is his mate. Aedan tells her he will protect her though he has a traitor to catch. They make love and he is stunned when she glitters as if she is fey.

The entries are entertaining historical vampire romances though the thin storylines are similar with an innocent female unaware of the existence of vampires and sensitive lead males assisting them with their transition.

2 out of 3 ranked four crowns 25. Oktober 2012

Born to Bite a collection of historical short reads Dark Secret from Hannah Howell, who tells a tale of orphan Murdina Dunbar who meets her Dark Lord posing as Sir Gillanders Baldwin while working as his maid per the lady of the house instructions. Both most flee the castle together and find out each other's true nature along the way.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I was really invested in Dark Secret, it did not read like a short story Mrs. Howell gave it her all. I loved the peak the story gave us into the wellbeing of the MacNachtons. Murdina was a brave woman making her own way in a time that almost never happened. Sir Gillanders (read to find out his true identity) was a great and protective hero what we all want in our dark vampire heroes.
Bookswagger Danielle: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I liked the mix of vampirism and emotions, I found it to be an interesting combination. The chemistry between Murdina and Gillanders was instantaneous and believable.

The second story is Highland Vampire by Diana Cosby. King of the Highland Coven of vampires Aedan Macgregor has finally met his mate. He assumed she was human but later discovered she was part fae. The penalty for turning a fae is immediate death but his enemies may leave him little choice.
Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. This story had me truly invested, we spent almost the entire read with the couple, with a few complications which made the plot extra juicy, very well done especially in a short story. I mean we have fae, vampires, plots to overthrow the throne and people trying to kill a witch. This was an exciting read.
Bookswagger Danielle: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. This was hands down my favorite story in Born to Bite. I found I didn't want it to end. I wanted to shake Rowan sometimes for not listening.

Born to Bite is wrapped up by Erica Ridley's Never Been Bitten. Miss Elspeth Ramsay is not like other ladies of the ton, she investigates paranormal activities for the coin, the idle rich have to waste. She is investigating rumored vampire Mr. Macane. During her investigation she discovers vampires are real and even more about herself and her heritage, all while falling for Mr. Macane the Highlander, hunter for his people.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. I enjoyed Never Been Bitten but it was not as strong as the other stories in Born to Bite. The concept was one I was excited to read about though. I love vampires in regency settings, we always read about them in today's time and get glimpses of their past with this story we get to see them living the life.
Bookswagger Danielle: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. This story had me on the fence. Ellie was smart (nerds rule) so I found it hard to believe it took her so long to come to the big "realization". Coupled with what I felt was an abrupt ending made me like it not love it.
