Vampires, Werewolves and Demons Oh My!

Looks like my computer is working for now. I have a feeling that I still have some sort of a virus on this thing and will be running the long all day scan tomorrow. But now onto some better news.

In the past two weeks I've read some great, great books and wanted to share them with you. If you like Werewolves, Vampires or romance you are going to love these.

Pride Mates by Jennifer Ashley

To most, they are animals- even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And DA Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair.

It's her job to defend those in need. But there's absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can't disguise his sheer strength. Nor can the silver chain at his throat, designed to control the aggression of his kind, completely reassure her that this man has been tamed.

Bride of the Wolf by Susan Krinard
