As Twilight Falls by Amanda Ashley is 99c! This is a paranormal romance with a vampire in charge of a mysterious town. Would that make him a vamp mayor? If I'm not mistaken, this is a standalone book and isn't affiliated with any of her other series. While readers felt the book was jam-packed with passion and tension, some found the heroine suffering from TSTL-itis. It has a 3.8-star rating on GR.
Photographing ghost towns across the American West, Kadie Andrews takes a wrong turn and ends up in Morgan Creek—a spot that isn’t on the map. It’s a quaint little place, but there’s something off about its complacent residents. And when twilight falls, it takes on a truly sinister air…
Unable to run or to find any way out, Kadie finds herself a prisoner, hunted for her blood. Still more disturbing, her spirit and beauty have captured the attention of the town’s leader—the mysterious Rylan Saintcrow. When he looks into her eyes, she can see his hunger. When he takes her in his arms, she can feel his power. When he presses his lips against hers, she can taste his need. Saintcrow may be the most powerful creature she’s ever imagined, but Kadie knows in her heart that he is also a man. A man who needs a woman. To want him, desire him, crave him. To be his willing prisoner—for all eternity…
A Quick Bite by Lynsay Sands is $1.99! This is the first book in the longstanding paranormal romance Argeneau series. It's now up to twenty books currently published, with the twenty-first coming out next year. Wowza. Most reviewers seemed to enjoy having a vampire heroine for a change, though others preferred their PNRs to be more dark and dangerous rather than light and cute. Any fans of the series in the bitchery?
That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course!
Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
Kiss of Surrender by Sandra Hill is 99c! The second installment in the Deadly Angels, this book's hero is a Navy SEAL vampire Viking angel. You know, the usual. Add in a cop heroine and a group of immortals hellbent on wreaking havoc all over the place. Be forewarned: some readers found this too cracktastic to take, while others thought it had just enough WTF. It has a 3.8-star rating on GR.
It’s not easy being a Vampire Angel
No one knows that better than Trond Sigurdsson. In the centuries since he last went out drinking and wenching with his Viking buds, Trond has been a gladiator, a cowboy, a ditch digger…even a sheik. But now he’s the baddest of them all: a kick-butt Navy SEAL kicking butts of terrorist immortals with the help of his hotter-than-Hades female partner, police officer-turned-Special Forces operative Nicole Tasso—whom Trond dearly hopes to “partner” with very shortly in a whole different way.
It’s not easy being a Vangel’s lover
The “cop” part of Nicole tells her there’s something bizarre about her gorgeous godlike teammate. But her “all-woman” side can’t help wondering how great it would be to have a virile Viking in her bed. Trond has secrets galore, but Nicole feels certain she can dig them out—and really get to the heart of this powerful, unnerving stranger whom she may be risking her soul to love.
Tiger Eye by Marjorie M. Liu is $2.99! An older paranormal romance, this is the first book in the Dirk & Steel series, which focuses on a super secret detective agency. Something I found out while researching this title is that Liu also writes for X-Men comics, which is pretty neat but completely unrelated. Instead of vampires, Tiger Eye features – you guessed it – shapeshifters. Though the pacing tended to slow at times, many readers loved the world Liu created.
He looks out of place in Dela Reese's Beijing hotel room- exotic and poignant, some mythic, tragic hero of an epic tale. With his feline yellow eyes, he's like nothing from her world. Yet Dela has danced through the echo of his soul and knows this warrior will obey her every command.
Hari has been used and abused for millennia. But he sees, upon his release from the riddle box, that this new mistress is different. There is a hidden power in Dela's eyes- and with her, he may regain all that was lost to him. Where once he savaged, now he must protect; where once he only knew hatred, now he must embrace love. Dela is the key. For Dela, he will risk all.
