Don’t mind the cover, just read the book!
Imagine the hero as you see fit and not how the book cover,coz honestly…jeez… instead of enticing, it scared the beejezus out of me. It sure did!
Storyline: On the trail of a serial killer, vampire Quentin Albermarle is mistaken for the killer by a police special task force. Once the smoke clears, Quentin finds himself in a delicious position-atop one of the unit’s crack officers, Darcy Henry. In need of Quentin’s access to the vampire sub-culture, the task force leadership invites Quentin to join the crime unit as a special advisor, much to the chagrin of the men in the unit, and especially, of Darcy. A no-nonsense cop with no time for romance, Darcy suddenly finds herself embroiled in a steamy love triangle between her mortal partner, Joe, and the handsome vampire. Going from abstinence to wantonness, she is unable to resist the two men’s relentless seduction or her own sensual curiosity about a vampire’s special “kiss”. When the real killer threatens the life of someone close to her, Darcy makes a choice that forever binds the three of them together.
Oh I really, really DISLIKED the ending! It was so cold despite the hot sex that concluded then! How could they do that to Joe? Poor Joe! But his story will be the next one All Knight Long and I can’t wait to read it!!!

First book of Ms. Devlin’s My Immortal Knight series…interesting. Ms. Devlin had opted for an imperfect heroine to a perfect vampire-hero–that’s really cool. And the H/H’s personalities contradicts each other that I had almost not seen the connection the two lust-driven protagonist could have…but they did!
Storyline: Emmaline Harris meets the perfect man at a Halloween party. After he rescues her from the unwanted attentions of another partygoer, she succumbs to his kisses and spends an evening engaged in wicked-sexy lovemaking. Sure she’s just a one-night stand, she tries to exit gracefully, but soon find she needs Dylan’s special skills when her world is turned upside down by a blood-drinking killer and his gang who target her for their next meal. Dylan O’Hara only wants a night of passion to slake his sexual needs, but finds Emmy is a full-bodied, red-blooded siren whose innocence and humor draws this Master vampire like a moth to a red-hot flame. When Emmy attracts the attention of a serial-killing vampire, Dylan vows to protect her, but he fears he’ll lose Emmy once she discovers her “Dracula” has real fangs!
I would really miss this serial-killing vampire coz I KNOW he will meet a devastating end due to all the crimes he had done. Ms. Devlin’s erotic compositions are super hot! I mean…damn!

I could say that this is the book everyone would love to like. It has family and romance engraved in its depths. Wonderfully written and the characters are amusing…especially the unlikely hero. Who would’ve thought that an untried man could be a hero? But the main characters both balance each other well it’s so lovely!

Do you get that feeling when you want to do something you really wanted to do (like going to the toilet..eww bad example, sorry!) but can’t because you have this other responsibility to do (yeah, because going to the toilet wastes precious time when you’re almost done preparing a very complicated dinner).
Well, my life sucks that way everyday…as much as I want to curl up with this…
…but can’t. I have the book just hanging out on my bookshelf…beside THIS one
…which I still haven’t read until now **poor me**
Ever since I stumbled upon the first three books by Cassandra Clare, I’ve been hooked and I can’t stop myself from pulling so many all nighters just so I could read the book. I’ve had many sleepless nights but they were ALL WORTH IT.
That’s the awesome power of Clary and Jace’s somewhat “taboo” love story could get you.
But the there’re still the Infernal Devices ( Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess) which to many are like MANNA from heaven, given through an angel named Cassandra Clare.
I can’t stand it, I MUST READ! :))))))

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you haven’t yet read this book then all I can say is: OH-EM-GEE you live under a rock, you’re missing a lot in life!!!
Story goes…Greyden Kane is your typical duke: lusty, hot for woman’s form, looking for redemption and that ever elusive feel of belonging-ness. For that he hides under a mask (uh, literally). He’s so torn and wrecked inside that he couldn’t even let himself be in love with the girl who caught his heart, Rose Danvers. Lucky for him, she reciprocates his love ten-fold (although as love story’s goes, they don’t know yet until the near-ending that they get to say those 143’s and 1433’s). They have great chemistry (first chapter and you’ve got a very hot, hot scene!) and passion is like second-skin/sweat…sex is awesome! But Greyden is torn and it is up to Rose to sew him back up and make him feel like the man she had always thought he was…even without all the trimmings!
Personally…Whoo! High-five! Awesome! Brilliant! Magnificent! Need I say more????
What’s different about this series?
Well for starters, Kathryn Smith had done major input on everything sensual…you might want to turn the AC on hih coz reading this book would surely put El Nino to shame (FYI: El Nino is extreme drought…imagine the heat and dehydration…now THAT’s how the story would leave you **hyperbole** 🙂 ).
Anyway…I just found that the characters really had an in depth relationship with each other–not just because they’re lusting after the other–but because they are in a LOT OF WAYS involved with one another. Greyden knew Rose’s father and Rose had always looked up to her father, until the day the looked-upon father put shame on their name–but without them knowing the real story behind it aside from Greyden himself. Rose was personified here as a “somewhat” innocent (although I know many would disagree), she seeks for what she wants by herself. She’s brave, spirited, strong-willed, dedicated and dumb.
Sorry for the irony but if we base it on reality (well, yeah going back to historical times then…), girls Rose’s age wouldn’t be thinking of what Rose did (pretend to be a hooker and let herself into the devil’s lair…and made him have his way with her). Somehow, women would ALWAYS manage to find a way to attract their mate. What Rose had decided and done upon herself was just something that would normally backfire the wrong way.
But this is fiction!
And the simple fact that Ms. Kathryn Smith placed a plot that had me hanging on to every scene and every word…the effect was simply ROMANTIC!
What a way to start a FEBRUARY!
So have you read the book? What did you think about it? Tell me what you think!

Tales from the Temple 3 Anthology by Delilah Devlin, Anya Bast, Diana Hunter, Cheyenne McCray, Mary Wine, Sherri L. King
What’s better than a book…take Anthologies! Stories in one! Among all the books, the one that I enjoyed the most was Sherri L. King’s Voyeurs Overexposed, which was a real humorous one among the story theme. Delilah Devlin as always makes the most engaging story in her Raptor’s Prey. There’s something about reading anthologies that is both fun and efficient. It’s like a book-spree but with different authors under a similar genre built to make the reader feel well-loved!
Since this was free…:) Well, this books was a pleasant surprise for me for when I read Delilah’s books, there’s always that tough interior that everyone adores about her and in this free read, well, I found the story really sweet!
And that makes Delilah such an awesome writer with so many aspects in her work that no one would ever expect what genius she has next!
