Alpha Showdown 2017 Round 2: Curran vs. Bones

Alpha Showdown 2017 Round 2: Curran vs. Bones Every year the Alpha Showdown gets harder. (We probably say this a lot, but it doesn’t make it not true…) Well, today’s one of the what?! how can you make me choose? rounds. It’s two long-running fan favorites: Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series and Bones from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress. You’ll have to decide who to back: the mighty werelion...

Alpha Showdown 2017 Round 1: Adam Hauptman vs. Cat Fisa

Alpha Showdown 2017 Round 1: Adam Hauptman vs. Cat Fisa We’re coming hot out the gates with Alpha Showdown 2017. We have a long-time favorite alpha Adam Hauptman from Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series (which we loooooove) up against newcomer Cat Fisa, the heroine of Amanda Bouchet’s Kingmaker Chronicles (which scratches our fantasy romance itch every single time). He’s got physical strength, wiles, and a seriously commanding style....

Win It Wednesday: Menagerie by Rachel Vincent (signed copy!)

Win It Wednesday: Menagerie by Rachel Vincent (signed copy!) It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Rachel Vincent’s books. Her Unbound series is one I recommend all the time to anyone who likes their romance and their heroines complicated. Beautiful writing. Engaging stories. Just, seriously, she’s an auto buy for me for a reason. I’m not the only one at VBC who adores her books. Check out Amy’s review of Menagerie. RIGHT?!? As a...

Win It Wednesday: White Hot by Ilona Andrews

Win It Wednesday: White Hot by Ilona Andrews We had a little bit of a breather on traditional Win It Wednesdays for a couple weeks, because it’s been contest-a-palooza here lately. Also, I was at RT Booklovers Convention and Borrowed Souls hit stores. But I’m back home in Texas, and I have a towering stack of books to giveaway to VBC readers. We’re going to go big today, though, with White Hot by Ilona Andrews. I’m pretty...

Jo’s April 2017 Reading Wrap Up

Jo’s April 2017 Reading Wrap Up Since taking over as reviews editor at VBC I don’t have as much time to review the books I read, so I thought it might fun to do my reading wrap-up at the end of the month. While my heart still lies with paranormal romance and urban fantasy, I’ve started to branch out into other genres too, so I thought this might be a good place to say what I liked (or didn’t) if you fancy trying something a little...

Is Chelsea Mueller’s Borrowed Souls for You? (+ Giveaway!) I don’t think it surprises any of the regular Vampire Book Club readers, but I have a book out today. My debut urban fantasy. It’s called Borrowed Souls, and I think you’re going to love it. When I started this blog back in 2010, I just wanted to engage with other people who loved the kinds of books I did. Those are the books with vampires (duh), shifters, magic, faeries, demons, and...

Win It Wednesday: The Dastardly Miss Lizzie by Viola Carr Earlier this week, Amy reviewed The Dastardly Miss Lizzie. Steampunk goodness with fascinating character dichotomy is always a win, which is why we’ve been hooked on the Electric Empire series since day one. If you’re eager for more of Viola Carr’s series, you’re in luck. I have one copy of the just-released The Dastardly Miss Lizzie set aside for a lucky VBC reader. If you want...

Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike

Win It Wednesday: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike It’s been a hot minute since we gave away a young adult book in Win It Wednesday. I didn’t forget about everyone who loves their YA fixes (myself included!), and I have an excellent book for you this week: Glitter by Aprilynne Pike. Despite the name, don’t expect Mariah Carey at all. We’re talking Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette. Royalty going drug dealer in a dystopian setting...
