If You Like The Naked Werewolf… Read Midnight Liaisons (And a Giveaway!)

If You Like The Naked Werewolf… Read Midnight Liaisons (And a Giveaway!) I have to say, vamps are not my favorite flavor of supernatural creature (Merit and Company excepted, of course). So finding books that feature shifters or witches or just plain other can be a bit of a challenge sometimes. [Ed. Note: Not everyone can love vampires as much as Chelsea does… we suppose.] When I first read the title of Molly Harper’s How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf, I had to read it....

If You Like The Mortal Instruments… Read The Witch Finder

If You Like The Mortal Instruments… Read The Witch Finder So the sixth Mortal Instruments book has been released, read, and reread. Tears were shed, plot lines were resolved, and happy endings were had by all. By all except for the readers who now have nothing in the young adult, urban fiction, paranormal romance, angel/demon/all-of-the-above genre to read. Jace and Clary had an epic love that overcame obstacle after obstacle. While we have been promised...

If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré

If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré Last year when Written in Red came out, it seemed to pop up everywhere for me. That’s when I knew I had to read this first book in a new series by Anne Bishop. What I found once I started reading was an interesting take on the supernatural, mainly shifters, that puts them in less of the human light and more in touch with their animal natures. Meg is a human, a cassandra sangue, a blood prophet on the run...

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb Okay this maybe cheating since I am recommending two series instead of one, but in my defense both series are by Karen Chance, are set in the same world, take place simultaneously, and have characters who crossover in both series. So really I am recommending the body of work of one author. My favorite characteristic of Kim Harrison’s The Hollow series is not only the strong female protagonist, but also...

Prove Your Love for Ethan Sullivan & Win Chicagoland Vampires Prizes

Prove Your Love for Ethan Sullivan & Win Chicagoland Vampires Prizes The whole team here at VBC loves Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series. There’s a reason you see quotes from Chelsea’s reviews in the front of the books. I really do think the series is a great urban fantasy with a heroine I’m happy to back. Today, though, as we settle in to celebrate the release of Blood Games, we’re going to talk about that green-eyed Master vampire...

Giveaway: Burning Dawn by Gena Showalter

Giveaway: Burning Dawn by Gena Showalter Sometimes I just like to giveaway books. You understand that because, like me, most of you are book hoarders. Today I have a copy of Gena Showalter’s latest Angels of the Dark book Burning Dawn to send to one lucky VBC reader. It’s paranormal romance goodness, and brings the heat fans of her Lords of the Underworld series expect. You can take a peek at Candace’s review to get a taste of...
