Oh, readers, it is the epic return of If You Like…! I know we dropped this feature for a few months, but when you started asking again (and continually read the BDB/Demonica post), I decided I couldn’t resist any longer.
Today’s recommendation is for those who love their urban fantasy with heavy doses of sexual tension. If you’ve fell in love with Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series (Some Girls Bite, Friday Night Bites, Twice Bitten, Hard Bitten and Drink Deep), and are aching for another series that promises to having a racing plot, big mysteries to solve, excellent supporting characters (Catcher Bell, I heart you) and intense hero/heroine interaction, I have you covered.
Kristen Painter’s House of Comarré series has a deceptively naive heroine (remind you of anyone?), a cursed hero, one hell of an evil villain and a vivid world with multiple supernatural types. If you enjoyed the tension ignite between Merit and Ethan during the first couple Chicagoland books, wait until you see the sparks between Mal and Chrysabelle. They need each other, but both are certain it’s a bad idea.
Additionally, the ancillary characters in the House of Comarré series, which begins with Blood Rights, are robust and endearing. You’ll adore Mal’s ghost and shifter friends — both outcasts in their own right — and you’ll be intrigued by just about every character you encounter inside a bar inspired by the seven deadly sins.
Trust me on this one. If you’re a Chicagoland Vampires fan (even just the first few books), you will be head-over-heels for House of Comarré.
