I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Fangs for the Memories by Molly Harper. Written for fans, this novella tells the story of how Andrea finally accepted Dick’s invitation for a first date.
I’m over at AudioGals with a review of Midnight’s Kiss by Thea Harrison, narrated by Sophie Eastlake. I was so glad the Carling/Julian conflict was resolved here as well.
Why I read it: This was one from my own TBL. The new release is out
soon now and I wanted to catch up on the series.
What it’s about: (from Goodreads) On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she’s vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That’s why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.
The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can’t ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier’s world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers—both to her life and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past…
What worked for me (and what didn’t): The Elder Races books are some of the few paranormal romances I still read. I’ve gone off a lot of PNR compared to my reading diet a few years ago. I particularly enjoy them on audio because Sophie Eastlake is a favourite narrator of mine. Here, I think the format left me with a happier experience than would have been the case if I had read the book.
