Just a little business before we get to the real meat of the blog. If you are a winner of my Killer Blog tour please contact me through my contact page and send me your information so I can either email your book or mail your prizes. List of winners can be found HERE.

I picked up my copy of Joan Swan’s FEVER last Thursday and held my breath till I could finally dive in on Sunday. Loved it! To read my review on Paranormal Freebies, click HERE. For those of you who can dive in right now and are looking for a book, I highly recommend FEVER. I’ve been waiting since 2010 for Joan’s book and it has seemed like forever!

Joan did let us sneak a peek in 2010, it wasn’t even quite through edits, but I knew then that I wanted more. So now I have it in my hot little hands and I’m thrilled!

Here is the blurb and I hope each and every one of you will run out and buy Joan’s book so she can write more! And for lots of chances to win FEVER click HERE and follow Joan on her Fever book tour.

Dr. Alyssa Foster will admit to a bad boy fetish…

But when she finds herself face to face with a convicted murderer with a ripped body, a determination for freedom and an eye on her as his get out of jail free card, Alyssa knows she’s in deep trouble…. Not just because Teague Creek is a prisoner desperate for freedom, but because his every touch makes her desperate for more.

A man with a life sentence has nothing to lose…

Teague Creek has one shot at freedom, but his plan to escape with a hostage develops a fatal flaw: Alyssa. On the run from both the law and deadly undercover operatives who know of his strange abilities, he needs to avoid trouble, but every heated kiss tells him the fire between them could be just as devastating as the flames that changed him forever.

The other book I picked up (finally!) is Melissa Mayhue’s Warrior’s Redemption. Another book I’ll have to wait to read, but now that I own it I can read it any old time I want to! Want to read a review of Warrior’s Redemption? Click HERE for ML Guida’s review.

Will the magic of modern romance help him defeat an evil ancient power?

MALCOLM MACDOWYLT sees himself a failed warrior, haunted by the death of the woman he married to become laird of Clan MacGahan.  Neither his Viking heritage nor his claim to descend from Norse gods can restore his confidence in his ability to protect his people.  His sister is held captive, her life in jeopardy, and his Magically powerful half brother wants him dead.  The last thing he needs is more responsibility, but that’s exactly what he gets when his Faerie mother-in-law arrives seeking justice for her daughter in the form of an enticing woman from seven hundred years in the future.

DANIELLE DEARMON has waited fifteen years to discover the life she is supposed to live.  She just never dreamed she’d end up in the thirteenth century with a handsome Scot bent on saving everyone but himself.

With the lives of those most dear to him hanging in the balance, Malcolm sets out to battle a powerful evil Magic, only to learn that the redemption he seeks exists only in the arms of the woman he loves.
I’m still waiting anxiiously for JL Bowen’s YA release, Healer from Featherweight Press. I shared the trailer (along with Melissa’s) HERE last week. This week I’m sharing the cover and the blurb. Enjoy!

Thirteen-year-old Armond Costa heals in three days, no matter what abuse his uncle and aunt inflict upon him. On his fourteenth birthday, he sprouts wings and discovers his aunt and uncle had lied to him. He’s the lost Golden Demon’s Healer. His father, King of the Golden Demons, insists he return with him and save his people from being persecuted by their mortal enemies, the Dark Demons. Now, Armond must choose between the Ellis brothers and seventeen-year-old Rusty Owens — the only family he’s ever known — or condemn the Golden Demons to extinction.

Can’t wait JL!

Now if you have all of these on your list I’m leaving you with a link to the Vampire Book Club and their list of March 2012 releases. They’ve done such a terrific job of compiling the releases that I simply had to send you over there. Enjoy!

The Bite Before Christmas Review

Thursday’s Bite

A paranormal blog

ΩΩΩ

Romance has a wonderful tradition of presenting us with themed collections of stories. We see Halloween stories and Valentines Day stories, but mostly there are Christmas collections. But Heidi Betts’ The Bite Before Christmas is the first paranormal Christmas story collection I can remember reading.

I was first introduced to Heidi’s through her modern (and definitely not paranormal) book Tangled in Love, a knitting romance. Fun, flirty and filled with yarn and pretty hot romance I enjoyed her style, but since I read mostly paranormal I didn’t look hard for Heidi’s other books. I consigned her to the cozy hot chick lit section, and moved on.

But Heidi is not keeping to her box. (Actually she writes a large variety of stories from chick lit to HQN Desires to westerns.) Oh no! Heidi has broken out and now writes paranormal, so when I saw she’d authored a Christmas collection of novellas, I decided The Bite Before Christmas has to jump to the top of the TBR pile.

I enjoyed it. Funny, sweet, and paranormal, this book is just the type of light reading I love for the holidays. Broken into three separate stories, each about modern day vampires, The Bite Before Christmas was a treat. I know it’s a little late for the actual holiday, so if you want to read about vampires, but don’t want anymore Christmas, you might try Heidi’s other paranormal books. Her latest is entitled Must Love Vampires, if you read it, let me know if you liked it!

And if you’ve tried The Bite Before Christmas, let me know what you think. Did you read a Christmas book this year? What are some of your favorites?
