Book Review: Emma Holly’s Heat of the Night

by Kathy Davie Series: Midnight, 3 and 4 (Omnibus) Other titles: Night Owl is also found in Hot Blooded My rating: 4 of 5 stars Filled with empathic characters, Hunting Midnight continues on with Ulric desperately trying to fill the gap in his heart after losing Gillian when he encounters Juliana who is desperate to escape an arranged marriage. Juliana blackmails Ulric into helping her and we follow their adventures on their run to Scotland and Ulric’s pack where Hunting Midnight continues on with Ulric desperately trying to fill the gap in his heart after losing Gillian when he encounters Juliana who is desperate to escape an arranged marriage. Juliana blackmails Ulric into helping her and we follow their adventures on their run to Scotland and Ulric’s pack where they have still more adventures. Holly does a nice job of “rehabilitating” Ulric after his poor showing in Catching Midnight. Night Owl takes place 700 years later when Ulric banishes his French upyrs, Bastien and Emile, to America where the two buy an inn in Vermont and Bastien encounters a passionate baker who is harassed by an ex-best friend after her grandfather’s recipes.

Kelley Armstrong, No Humans Involved

Series: Women of the Otherworld, 7 My rating: 3 of 5 stars A truer word er, title, was never spoken. This particular story revolves around Jaime and her gift of necromancy when a spiritualist television program involves her with an unexpected and unknown group of ghosts. Allies pop out of the woodwork, literally, to help Jaime discover who these ghosts are and why she cannot reach them. Eve, Kristof, demons, Jeremy, Karl, and other ghosts cause Jaime to reconsider her previous approach to ghosts. And Jeremy and Jaime discover each other. View all my reviews

Anne Stuart, Breathless

Anne Stuart, Breathless

Series: House of Rohan, 3 My rating: 4 of 5 stars Actually, this one should have been titled Reckless as its primary female character is incredibly reckless and never seems to learn Society’s rules. A very enjoyable erotic romance if only for its unique approach to romance. Miranda is secure in her family’s love and wealthy enough to ignore society. A youthful indiscretion casts her from society only to find her incredibly bored and ripe for the Earl of Rochdale’s plucking. A man who has only a vicious revenge on his mind. Toss in Miranda’s plain friend, Jane, who has given up and accepted the hand of a priggish bore yet accidentally encounters the roguish, handsome king of the thieves whose kisses melt her resolve. This has been a fun series as its heroines have been plain and on-the-shelf. A nice switch from the ravishing beauties… View all my reviews
