Review: Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks (2011)

Love at Stake, Book 10

Heat Factor: Smoldering, but watch out for Hellfire.

Review: Born in Fire by K.F. Breene (2017)

Fire and Ice Trilogy, Book 1

Heat Factor: No sex, but some very explicit moments of “we are very very ready to bone”

Character Chemistry: Lots of mistrust, but they are stuck with each other

Plot: Vampires vs mages plus inscrutable magic politics with a high body count

Overall: Too much snark
