Copper Beach by Jayne Ann Krentz

If you have been following my blog you know that Jayne Anne Krentz, aka, Amanda Quick, aka, Jayne Castle writes one of my favorite series the Arcane Society. Cooper Beach is a spin-off series that introduces a new family; the Coppersmiths. This is a contemporary paranormal romance filled with mystery and suspense.

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

Hallowed book two in the Unearthly trilogy, took me on an emotional ride and left me wanting more. This novel picks up a few months after Unearthly ends. Hand’s writing style is unique and her character driven series is well on its way to becoming one of my favorites.

The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose

The Book of Lost Fragrances is a captivating historical fiction. It offers a tale of suspense with paranormal elements, religious oppression and a romance that spans the ages. Rose masterfully blends fact and fiction as she takes us from the tombs of ancient Egypt to the catacombs of Paris. I was fascinated by the history and drawn to the characters.

The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice

Anne Rice is a best-selling American author of gothic, supernatural, historical, erotica, and religious themed books. She is perhaps best known for her Vampire Chronicles. The Wolf Gift delves into the creation of werewolves and presents both philosophical and religious views and questions. The tale, which moved at a slow pace, was beautifully written, but lacked the luster I was looking for. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed it; I just felt that overall it fell flat of my personal expectations.

Feyland: The Dark Realm by Anthea Sharp

Feyland: The Dark Realm is pure, delightful fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging quest and romance. It blurred the lines between reality and gaming. While I have absolutely no experience playing this type of video game; I have watched enough of my son playing quest games to appreciate the plot and understand the world of Feyland. I love the way in which Sharp weaves fairy folklore and Scottish ballads into this tale.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I picked Unearthly up sometime in 2011 because I loved the cover. For some reason, it kept getting shuffled around to the back of my TBR pile and after reading a review I almost bought it again. Unearthly is the first in a trilogy and I will be reviewing book two the Hallowed later this month. This novel is filled with angel mythology, suspense, romance and typical high school drama.

The Wedding Gift by Kathleen McKenna

When I first saw the cover and read the synopsis for The Wedding Gift, I was immediately intrigued. I love a suspenseful tale with haunted houses and ghosts. The beginning started off rocky for me but by the end I was glad I had read this shocking, humorous mystery.
