From Goodreads: Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either. When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul. As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy. Bought from AmazonActual Rating 4.5 What I Loved:  This was a book about Payne, Manny, Vishous, Jane, and Butch!  I refuse to give any kind of spoilers so let me just say if you love the […]

From Goodreads:   You might know her as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star, who originated the role of Galinda the Good Witch in the smash musical Wicked and won a Tony for 1999’s You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Or you may recognize her from her starring roles on TV — The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, Sesame Street…oh, and her Huge Hit Sitcom Kristin on NBC. (Huge hit. L.A. breast-implant huge. Ask either of the people who watched it.) Or maybe you saw her sexy spread in FHM magazine? Or her appearance on Pat Robertson’s The 700 Club? Kristin is a wonderful collection of contradictions — but everyone who’s ever met her remembers her as the little girl with the big voice. At four foot eleven, Kristin Chenoweth is an immense talent in a petite but powerful package.In this lively, laugh-out-loud book, Kristin shares her journey from Oklahoma beauty queen to Broadway leading lady, reflecting on how faith and family have kept her grounded in the dysfunctional rodeo of show biz. The daughter of an engineer and a nurse, Kristin was singing in front of thousands at Baptist conventions by age twelve and winning beauty pageants by age twenty-two. (Well, actually […]

Author Website OK!  So I finished this series just in the nick of the time!  Do the happy dance *insert snoopy dance here* Overall Series Rating: 4 Favorite Book: DreamFever Least Favorite Book: FaeFever Favorite Character: Tie between Barrons and Danni Least Favorite Character: Mac Read or Listened Too: Listened to on Audiobook Would I Recommend this Series: YES! Though to Urban Fantasy Fans this is a dark series. Was it easy to Read? Yes!  The story flowed really well.  There was some repetitiveness but not really any more than other series I have read. I think authors do it so if you come in during the middle of a series you are not completely lost.  That being said, you will be completely lost if you come in during the middle of this series.  It really is made to read from front to back! Overall Thoughts (No Spoilers): I did enjoy this series even though the main character was my least favorite character. Weird, right? Not really!  I think she was written true to her personality, it is just one that got on my nerves.  There are so many great characters and story archs in this series that you don’t […]
