Paranormal can be very addictive and enticing reads and Laurie London’s short novella “Enticed By Blood” is just that, tempting and enticing.


Juliette Bishop comes face to face with her former lover Andre Lescarbeau when she comes to New Orleans to take care of business on her father’s behalf when he falls ill. One night between Juliette and Andre has left both with unforgettable memories. Juliette feels betrayed as she thinks Andre was cheating on his wife, and Andre has a secret that seen the light of day would destroy him and his love.

As they both get stormed in, evil forces are out to destroy Andre and Juliette gets in the crosshairs of death. As secrets come to light, her love for Andre is put to test and Andre has to trust Juliette with his secret and his heart.

Super short novella yet very captivating and intense, “Enticed By Blood” will keep you entertained and hooked and Laurie London sure can keep her readers enthralled with her short novellas or her regular length books. She is another cool paranormal writer and I enjoy her books a lot.

This is part of the Sweet Blood Vampire Series and was originally published in the Mammoth Book Of Southern Gothic Romance.

Received and ARC from the author for an honest review.

Rebecca Zanetti had always been one of my favorite writers/authors, well before I started writing reviews for any books. Her Maverick Montana Series is one of my all-time favorites that I’ve visited innumerable times!

Paranormal for me was an iffy genre, which thanks to Cynthia Eden, have lost myself hook, line and sinker! And now Rebecca Zanetti is right there next to my favorite paranormal writers Cynthia Eden and Donna Grant. And as a voracious reader, my husband’s fighting a losing battle with the realm of vampires, shifters, demons etc…etc… 😉

The Dark Protector Series is a fascinating series of fearless male vampires, prophesized to be mated to human females for eternity. Dark with midnight intensity, raw passion that takes our breath away, and a fierce love that defies all boundaries, these powerful alpha males would do anything to protect their own and their people.

Fated – Three hundred year old vampire Talen Kayrs, saves Cara Paulsen and her extraordinary gifted daughter Janie, from the clutches of the evil. Janie is touted to be the one to bring down all evil in eternity and Talen would lay down his life for them.


Claimed Emma Paulsen (Cara Paulsen’s sister) is on the run trying to stay alive. A brilliant geneticist and a powerful psychic, she would lay her life down for her family and defy Dage Kayrs if necessary. As the King Of The Realm, Dage is fighting a war with the evil Kurjans, along with his brothers, trying to find a cure for an evil virus been spread and at the same time maintain balance and peace in the realm. And for this, he would do anything to protect his realm, Emma and mate her for eternity.

Tempted Sara Pringle escapes a mental institution and is on the run from her vindictive brother who is ready to sell her to the Kurjans. With her life as a schoolteacher on hold, she has no choice but to trust the ass-kicking, enigmatic Max Petrovsky and put her life in his hands. Primal need and protective instincts dictate Max to do what needs to be done to keep his mate safe.

Hunted – It’s been a century since Conn had marked Moira Dunn, quantum physics witch, as his mat; a century away from her, as he gave her time to grow up, harness her powers and go back to him. But with the Realm getting ready for a war with the Kurjans, and allies changing hands, Connlan Kayrs had enough of the wait and goes to get back his wickedly hot and sinful witch.

This is just the first 4 part volume and there are more Dark Protectors waiting in the wings to be read. Anyone wanting to take a plunge into the other realm and get acquainted with the paranormal over a cuppa coffee…go for it. A fabulous series, with a super fabulous author/writer at the helm.

You can say I’m biased, partial or plain one-sided, but in my opinion Cynthia Eden writes the best paranormal that I’ve ever come across.

Vampires, Demons, and all the other known paranormal is known to exist among us. Just like us humans faced with the good, the bad and the ugly, so does the paranormal realm. And the evil is sent to Purgatory, a place where the evil of the evil are prisoned forever.

Cynthia Eden’s second release in her Purgatory Series, “Marked By The Vampire”, takes us up close and personal with Shane August, an FBI agent and Dr. Olivia Maddox. Shane is one of a kind, super powerful vampire working undercover to infiltrate Purgatory to bring light to strange and dangerous experiments being conducted. Olivia is sent on the ride to study the reason some vampires turn deadly versus others who remain good.


The clash of a vampire and a jinnh is a magical thunderbolt and the mating of these two is astronomically addictive. Even as Shane and Olivia try to discover the evil behind Purgatory, betrayal and unknown forces are at play trying to burn these two to ashes. Olivia struggles to find herself and accept her identity and Shane puts his life at stake for the love of his life.

With all the adrenaline and evil surging on Purgatory, betrayal and double-crossing in play, lust and passion weaving its magic around Shane and Olivia, surviving seems to be just out of a finger’s reach and the beast within is waging a victory.

Another outstanding creation from Cynthia Eden!!!! Non-stop action, unpredictable situations, desires as dark as the night, lust as thick as fog and trust put to the ultimate test, this is one book you don’t want to miss.

And the burn continues……fangs sink into flesh…..control and lust at its ultimate……blood humming in the veins…..explosive and hot!! 

Cynthia Eden’s latest release, “Once Bitten Twice Burned” in her Phoenix Fire Series, sure fanned my flames of paranormal interest and the uncontrollable urge to read and read more. Ryder and Sabine turned out to be such intense and mesmerizing characters, their story sizzled with passion and chemistry.Image

How can the coming together of a Vampire and a Phoenix not entertain us to the fullest? Meeting as experiments in the crazy Wyatt’s laboratory Genesis, Sabine gets thrown into Ryder’s cell as his meal! And amidst the bloodthirsty lust of a vampire and the burning desire of a phoenix in transition, Ryder and Sabine try to beat all odds to survive Wyatt’s super crazy experiments as he tries to build the ultimate fighting soldier. I so fell in love with Ryder and Sabine – so full of betrayal and pain, old hurt and memories, trying to accept their new regeneration. Along with mind-blowing satisfaction, their sadness and hurt was so palpable. And yes people even paranormals have a heart and feelings!

Like I had mentioned in my previous article, Cynthia’s paranormal books were my first introduction to “Paranormal 101’. I’ve never read an author, whose books narrate a story with such intensity and authority in the words, lust and passion in action, control and power in dominance and have never looked back! What really amazes me to no end is her depth of creativity. Her stories are imaginations of urban fantasies with the existence of paranormal in our daily lives. Her in depth research and her amazing ability to come with such fascinating fiction is no tall order. I sure would like to get into her brain for one day!

ImageThe “Phoenix Fire Series” should be read in sequence (in my opinion) to follow the storyline and characters. Her first book in this series, “Burn For Me” introduces us to Genesis and Richard Wyatt, his subject 13 aka Cain O’Conner and Eve Bradley. I was fascinated with Cain and his character, as much as I was totally flabbergasted with Wyatt’s history and his crazy experiments.

With the first two books, it looks like the destruction and Genesis has been controlled, but who knows what more can happen in this crazy world of paranormal as Dante and his Cassandra try to come to grips with each other. Now this is another story for another time.

Regeneration and not rebirth! Love her books!!
