Connie Suttle's "Blood Passage"

Blood Passage (Blood Destiny #2)Blood Passage by Connie Suttle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the continuation of Lissa Beth's story as a new vampire. Connie Suttle is a wonderful writer. Her stories flow, and they just have great, lovable, and memorable characters. The only problem with this book is the fickleness of Lissa when it comes to men. Gavin, Winkler, and Tony all show her affection, which she shows back. It's also mentioned in this book that she has a minor thing for her sire. This is the only thing that bothers me about the character of Lissa.

Warning!! This book ends with a cliffhanger, so, be ready to grab the next as soon as you can!!!

Review of "Waves of Seduction" by Cathryn Fox

Waves of SeductionWaves of Seduction by Cathryn Fox
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The idea of the plot line is great. It's essentially a retelling of the little mermaid in a modern day setting... plus erotica. The problem was, it was far too short! The author left the story at a point that made me go, "wait, that's it?!" I was hoping to possibly see a continuation, and maybe there will be. But as of right now, from what I can tell, there is not. Be prepared for some steamy scenes, and a want for more, and this book will leave you aching for more.

UTC Immortals Reading Challenge

Vampires, angels, demons, werewolves and fae. If you can’t pick a favourite, then that’s okay!

At UTC, we love them all! So let’s celebrate our love for all things immortal with 2012’s Immortal Reading Challenge.

Here’s the rundown:
1. The Immortals Reading Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. You can join at anytime from now and throughout the year. This is a 2012 challenge, so books read before January 1 will not count to your progress.

2. You pick your goal! Read as many books as you’d like for each species. This means that you can do just one category or all five or a combination of. The choice depends on you and your reading pace.

*We have chosen to have a three book per species standard. However, if this is a breeze for you, then feel free to tackle on the additional bonus entries of two more books of the same level.

3. Re-reads are acceptable.

4. Books chosen can be of any genre.

5. To participate, copy and paste this post on your blog along with the challenge button. We ask that you provide a link back to the sign-up page in case others wish to participate.

6. Readers without blogs can still participate! Keep track of your progress with Goodreads, Shelfari or LibraryThing.

Under the Covers' Dirty Little Secret #22

Ok, so the question posed is: "Which paranormal creature do you wish would "come out of the closet" and reveal themselves to the real world?"

Well, I'd have to give my answer as vampires... or shifters.... Hm. That's a toughie. I think I'd go with shifters. I've fallen in love with Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, and while I love her bestie Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series, Ilona has taken first place in my fave book series now. &hearts. Just love it. So, when I think of sexy shifters, I think of Curran... Yum... *drools* So, shifters. Final answer. :)
