Review: The Beast of Blackmoor by Milla Vane (2014)

A Gathering of Dragons, Prequel Novella

Review of A Gathering of Dragons, Book 1

Heat Factor: Oral sex on the table in a pub full of people.

Character Chemistry: Instalove, but it’s willed by a goddess, so we’ll go with it.

Plot: Mala is on a divine quest to “tame the Beast of Blackmoor.” She thinks that means destroying the demon that’s been ravaging the land. Imagine her surprise when she learns that that zombie-fighting hottie she saw is *actually* the Beast of Blackmoor…and he will *never* be tamed. 

Overall: Quick, sexy, satisfying

Region Two, Book #2

Review of Region Two, Book #1

Heat Factor: There’s some sex at the beginning, and then a really long dry spell

Character Chemistry: Their relationship is going through a lot, so their chemistry comes and goes

Plot: Uh. Let’s destroy the HEA from Book 1.

Overall: The first half of this book went some seriously unexpected places, which made for a very unusual romance reading experience.

Series Review: Hidden Sins by Katee Robert (2017)

Heat Factor: It’s more focused on the crime drama than on the sexy sex

Character Chemistry: “I’m attracted to you and also we’re going through some intense things.”

Plot: Murder most foul! (Why else would the BAU be in a small town romancing the locals?)

Overall: Pretty satisfying romantic suspense

Plot: Lesbian demon hunters in the wild west, except we start the story in the middle and one has amnesia

Overall: I liked it, mainly because the setup is very very cool

Review: Pretty Little Lion by Suleikha Snyder (2021)

Third Shift, Book #2

Review of Third Shift, Book #1

Heat Factor: Blow job in a closet the first time they meet, but we don’t get a lot of explicit details.

Character Chemistry: Sexual attraction + some ineffable thing that’s breaking down the walls they’ve erected.

Plot: Elijah is trying to get information on an arms dealer, so he honeypots the guy’s girlfriend. Too bad Meghna is also an agent with her own agenda. And then Elijah kills someone he shouldn’t and shit hits the fan. 

Overall: I got bored and gave up after reading the first third.
