Into the Night
The Latest in Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy
"oh no, it's over!"
Have you ever had mixed feelings about a series you have read and enjoyed coming
to an end? You might be relieved that the heroine gets her happily-ever-after or
be thinking "No Ė there is so much more they can do!" That is exactly where I
stand on the ending of Keri
Arthur's Read More...

Here in Toronto, the sun is finally out, and it looks like itís here to stay.
Many people have thrown on the shorts and sunglasses, and color splashes every
article of clothing and makeup. I think itís safe to say that summer is
officially here. But even if it isnít quite as warm where you live, that doesnít
mean you canít get ready for the hottest summer releases!
June is Read More...
With the celebration of Fatherís Day this month, I wanted to take a moment here
to talk about the presence of men in books. In Urban Fantasy and Paranormal
Romance especially, male leads are very important to the storyline. A good hero
can either make or break a book. In my reading experience, if I donít like a
hero in a Romance book, thatís it. That pretty much ends all chances that Read More...
If we rewind about five or six years ago, I discovered Paranormal Romance for
the very first time. The
genre was about to reach its peak with the presence of vampires and werewolves
on the big and
small screen. Since then, however, there have been plenty more books written and
follow the same tried and true trends of Paranormal Romance but others, like the
ones I will
recommend this week, are books that Read More...
The month of May is rife with Young Adult releases but the ones I have chosen
are a little bit more special because they have that have a paranormal twist to
them! If you're like me, you are looking forward to these releases. Personally,
I'm a lover of both YA and PNR so whenever I find a series that combines the
two, they tend to get pushed up on my TBR pile.
Authors Read More...
Are you a fan of short stories or novellas? Frankly I have a love/hate
relationship with them. I love them because they are a great way to discover
new authors and to try out a series before investing.
This is especially important for series that are long-standing (i.e. have over
ten books in the series already). Short stories are also fun if you're
anxiously awaiting the newest installment to your favorite Read More...
Finally we are headed into spring with the month of April but other than looking
forward to the warmer weather, there's also plenty more in the book world to get
excited about. April has so many releases that I've been anxiously awaiting so
for this week's recommendations, I wanted to share what I plan on reading and
hopefully you'll find them interesting enough to add them to your own to-be Read More...
Not too long ago, the genre blew up with paranormal stories. Readers were
gobbling up these stories like they were desserts, devouring them in mere hours.
As a Paranormal Romance fan myself, I was one of these rabid readers and in that
time, I've found some of my all-time favorite series and authors.
At the top of the pack were vampire stories. Suddenly the threatening fangs and
pale skin were seen as a Read More...
This March get ready to be bombarded left and right with hot new releases that
are sure to keep you spellbound for the rest of the month! All of the books I'll
be talking about today will probably be familiar to you as they are written some
bestselling authors. Their series have been chart toppers numerous times and
been loved by many readers. But instead of talking more about each series and
its characters Read More...
Scroll down and take a quick look at the covers of this weekís recommendations.
What do you see?
The first thing you may have noticed is that all the covers feature a strong
woman. Thatís no
coincidence because in the Urban Fantasy genre, itís the lead heroine that runs
the show. We as the
reader see the world through their eyes, making it crucial that we feel a
connection to the heroine Read More...
With the quick approach of Valentineís Day, I wanted to celebrate this holiday
by sharing my all-time favorite scenes in Romance. After years of reading
Romance, I had so many good scenes to choose from but I will admit that it
wasnít hard to pick out my top two favorites. These are scenes that constantly
stand out in my mind. I remember reading them for the first time and feeling my
heart Read More...
Itís that time of the year when our moods drop. The holidays are over and for
many, the cold, winter months make the everyday seem like an impossible task.
Itís also a month for change. People are trying to reorganize their priorities,
hoping to take better care of themselves or start new endeavors. Itís easy to
get lost in the process and overstress yourself. Thankfully thereís something I
can rely out Read More...
Over the years, Iíve come across several eye-catching covers. Some covers have
been so striking that Iíve added them to my to-be-read mountain immediately.
Whether itís a hot man on the cover or a truly artistic depiction of a
character, covers can certainly make or break a book. Thatís why this week, I
want to go over what I think makes for a great book cover!
First off Read More...
Has 2015 been good for you, reading-wise? Looking back on this past year, I can
definitely recall many books that have either made me laugh or cry. Those ones
are sitting proudly on my keeper shelf and will no doubt be ones Iíll be
returning to again and again.
For me personally, I think J.R. Ward has had a
fabulous year. Not Read More...

Whether you like it or not Christmas and the holidays are quickly approaching! I think for most of us
itís the busiest time of the year. Many of you will be shopping for gifts for family and friends or trying
out some new recipes to make sure that on the big day nothing goes awry. Or perhaps youíre one of
those well- organized people who have everything all set and ready to go Read More...
Feel like heating things up? Well, youíre in luck because the month of November
is rife with new
Dragons are no doubt some of my favorite paranormal creatures. Authors have taken
and have really made them their own in their respective series. While some series
are set in the current time period, there are also some that
take place in alternate
fantasy worlds, showing how versatile dragons can be. If Read More...
Welcome to the world of the Paranormal! If youíre new here, this is the place where I chat
latest and greatest releases in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. No, wait!
you leave thinking that we only talk about vampires that sparkle in the sun, youíre wrong.
Romance isnít all just about angst and blood. Thereís a lighter side to it as well. A side
that Read More...
October is the month for all things furry and fanged! In my opinion, October is the best month of the
whole year because itís a time of change and transformation. The weather is cooler, the leaves are
beginning to change colors. There is also one night where you can dress up in silly costumes and
paint your face various different colors and not be considered weird.
Always wanted to be a vampire? Well, now Read More...
In some series, thereís usually one or two short stories or novellas that are either released in
anthologies, a compilation of shorter stories in one book with other authors or on their own as ebook
shorts. Although set at a lower price, not everyone is a fan of these short style of stories because
they donít offer the same experience as a full-length novel can. But does that mean you should skip Read More...
With September already more than halfway through and the first day of autumn
Iím sad to say that summer has finally come and gone. Aw, come on now. Donít
get all depressed!
Thereís still plenty to look forward to!
So many activities are available at your fingertips. If the landscape around

Even in alternate worlds where vampires and shifters roam freely, there are always a group of men
(sometimes including women!) that are considered the best of the best. In the our world, we have the
men and women in service who put their lives in danger everyday and these books arenít much
different from that. These characters are either skilled in combat, have a great amount of knowledge
about something very important or even Read More...
This week Iím getting a little shifty. Why you ask? Well, thatís because the month of
August is rife with
sexy shifter releases! Iíve always been a fan of shifter stories but my favorites are have
about dragon and wolf shifters.
Dragon shifters have become more prominent now following the likes of G.A. Aikenís Dragon Kin Read More...
Itís rare to find a standalone book nowadays. Most books youíll find on the shelves are always part of
a series. A series is when you have multiple books set in the same world, sometimes following the
same characters. The great thing about this is that once you find a world that enchants you or you
meet new characters you adore, there is always more to discover when its part of a series Read More...
