I am currently on a book journey – one that is over 40 books long. Review for book 1 and the prequel is here. You can read along with me if you choose. I am reading book 3 which is Dance with the Devil.
ABOUT THE BOOK
An ancient Celtic warrior cursed by a god to bring death to any woman he loves, Talon, a seductive vampire, prowls the night, serving as a protector of the innocent, until in modern-day New Orleans, a runaway Mardi Gras float brings him face to face with the outrageous Sunshine Runningwolf.
Dear Reader, Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I command the elements, and I know no fear. For centuries, I’ve protected the innocent and watched over the mankind, making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress, who wants nothing more from me than one night.
Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman who saves my life but can’t remember where she put my pants. Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no ties, no long-term commitments. But every time I look at her, I start yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her would mean her death. I am cursed never to know peace or happiness-not so long as my enemy waits in the night to destroy us both. –Talon of the Morrigantes
I loved this book. Talon and Sunshine were great. I really really enjoyed this book so much! Talon and Sunshine were just *chef’s kiss*. This book had me reading until 3am. I loved how even though it is romance there was still plot and that there was character development.
However, I do wish there was a bit more feeling in this book. While the dynamics between the main couple were great, I just wish there was more. I also think there was too much sex in this book. Gasp! I know, can there truly be too much sex in a book. The answer is yes. At least for me. While the romance was so good. I wish there was more emotion.
I loved how Talon thought about how cute and endearing Sunshine’s clumsiness was. It was cute to read about. Overall this was a great read and I did not put it down until I was done with it.
I am loving this series and can not wait to keep reading!!
I have always loved fantasy and paranormal romance. In fact most of my favorite books are all fantasy romance. So when I learned of a book series that has an overarching plot of over 30 books I could not resist. I have decided to blog my reading journey. Every book. Yep, that’s right. I am going to be reading every book. All forty two of them.
I will be following the recommended reading order the author herself recommends if you want to read with me you are welcome to do so. I am going to try to read at least three books a month. Here we go, jumping right into it.

About the Book
Julian of Macedon has spent centuries in hell, where the only respite he knows is measured in a handful of weeks whenever he’s summoned through an arcane spell. With the modern age, those summonings are becoming fewer and fewer, and he lives in fear of the day when they’ll stop for good.
Grace Alexander doesn’t believe in much of anything. But when her “psychic” girlfriend talks her into performing the spell as a joke on her birthday, the last thing she ever imagines is it working. But work it does. Now, she finds an ancient Greek general in her living room and trapped in her life for the next month. Worse, they learn too late that part of the spell means Grace will lose her sanity should he return to his captivity.
Now it’s a race against time to free him. Something much easier said than done, since it was the ancient gods who cursed him to his fate. And the last thing they want is to see him go free of the punishment the gods believe he deserves. It’s man against the gods, and a race against time.
I really liked the beginning of this book. The romance, the mystery of the curse and Julian and Grace’s dynamic and relationship. However, the reason I did not give this book 4 stars was how she portrayed Aphrodite and Athena. They seemed cheesy and rushed and ver ooc from the brief moments we did see them earlier in the book. They both seemed to be written by a what seemed to be a teenage girl n the end. Their characters did not match how I would assume goddesses would act, especially how they were portrayed however briefly in the beginning/middle of the book.
Julian and Grace I loved and adored. Their relationship and their chemistry was everything and I loved them both so much. The chemistry between them was so hot and I just loved Julian. His character was well developed and I loved how he saw Grace and how much he cared for her. Same with Grace, I loved her character and how she interacted with Julian.
Now the scenes between Grace and Julian. Oh so hot. I loved the epilogue and I hope to see more of them in the rest of the series.
