Tanith is just where the story left her last time. In her club surrounded by werewolves who are about to shift and attack each other. Kieran's pack is going up against Phoenix's pack and the odds don't look good for Kieran from where she is standing. With only an aluminum bat as a weapon she jumps in and fights alongside Kieran.

Jamison is still nowhere to be seen but Mitch has found out something about his disappearance. Of course Jamison is in trouble but what kind this time? A quick phone call that doesn't give her any information leaves Tanith waiting for Mitch to turn up in person to give her the news. What will he tell her when he arrives? Is Jamison dead?

There were only 2 chapters in this new installment and slowly I am beginning to tire of this short book concept. The idea of a few chapters of one story being released now and again was new and interesting at the start but the cliffhanger ending this time annoyed me because yet again I have to wait for the next part to find out what happens next.

On the other hand my annoyance shows how good this story is turning out to be. It has a great main character and an exciting amount of paranormal content. I am hooked. However, not enough of the story is shared in each installment. It makes keeping track of what has happened almost impossible. As soon as you get back into the world that the author has created and remember what happened last time the newest addition is already over.

All in all another great section of the story but please give the reader more. The suspense is keeping me reading but at some point I know I will bore of the shortness of the book sections.

Review: Inherently Sexual: The Runaway



Inherently Sexual: The Runaway
Jaime Samms
Freya’s Bower
Available Now
ISBN#: Not Available
Rating: Sweet
Ebook: 23 pages
Price: $1.49
Genre: M/M Romance

After ten years and his father’s death, Miles is finally coming back home. His home and past still haunt him, but he knows that he must face them. In facing his past, he may be able to find his future.


Jaime Samms did an excellent job with such a short story. Each page is filled with deep emotions and vivid descriptions. Miles has been filled with pain for years because of his drunken father, and his uncle who beat him. He still carries the scars from his past, inside and out. All the pain and anger he has carried with him has affected who he is and how he has lived his life. Ms. Samms gave me an in-depth look at Miles and all of his emotional pain. Dillon’s character is not quite as developed, but I could still feel his deep pain and abiding love for Miles.

This story brings to life a very real pain, not over the top, but just as it would be in reality for anyone in this same situation. The reader gets just enough of the past and present, colored with the emotions of each character in each situation, to imagine the rest of the story, including all those years of the past. I highly recommend this very real, very touching story.

Review: Blood Martyr Book IV: Blood Wolf

Three nights after taking Jamison's blood Tanith talks to the only person she can about her predicament, a vampire named Cale. Jamison is no where to be found and Tanith is worried about him. Has another vampire found out about her tasting his blood and taken him? Or is he just hiding?

To take her mind off things Tanith goes to her club, Black Masque and soon enough she has other worries. One pack of werewolves are due to visit the club tonight and she finds out that the rival pack are also due a visit.

Tensions rise in this fourth part in the Blood Martyr book. Although a good installment to the book so far these couple of chapters didn't really take us any further into the story but just satisfied the need for more from this interesting series.

Tanith is an extremely likable character and with so many paranormal creatures running about this series shows more promise as it continues. Now the wait is on for Book 5 in this addictive chapter by chapter series.

Tanith is a vampire who feeds from men in more ways than one. Blood and sex just seem to go together and she is out for more and more. With a new man just hours after the last she hasn't even had a chance to change the bed covers. The hunger keeps her from throwing her new visitor out.

All talk, Roane keeps reminding her of her best friend Jamison. When he ties her up and blindfolds her she is overwhelmed with need and can't wait to get things going. Little does she know that she is being tricked for the second time that day and this time she has been forced to cross a line that she can't fix. Things will never be the same again for Tanith.

This is only a couple of chapters but it leaves an impression. A feisty and somewhat sultry vampire is the main character here and her hunger seems to be getting her into more and more trouble. Just from this snippet any reader can tell that this is not a stand alone, this is the third chapter in the Blood Martyr chapter book series. However it is such a good piece of work that it will make any paranormal fan who likes strong female characters rush out to get more of this series.

Hot and sexy, this is worth taking a look at, be warned though! This small taste will leave you wanting a full portion.

Blood Martyr: Book II: Blood Witch

ISBN# not assigned
Rating: Sweet
Book Length: Chapter Book
Genre: Vampire/Paranormal/Contemporary

Tanith wasn't really in much danger but her mortal friend and witch, Jamison, manages to scare Kieran away. Tanith isn't too happy about her friend barging in to her apartment but Jamison brings news of a new vampire hunter in town. He is only after older vampires and he is worried that Tanith is a target. She isn't worried. As a vampire she is ready for anything anyone can throw at her.

Jamison is drunk and he has interrupted her feeding. Tanith goes out on the hunt again and quickly finds a new blood donor. Taking him back to her place she finds her prey to be slightly strange. He is a witch and is willing but something doesn't seem right. Is Tanith making a mistake she will regret later?

This second part in the chapter release of this novel sees Tanith making herself more known as a character. She is hard and strong, if not slightly cocky about it. Maybe this will see her having problems later on in the story. Jamison is a weak character in this installment but it seems he will be back and Kieran also promises a return.

Not as fast paced or deep as the first part of the story, these two chapters are more information based and are obviously leading the story somewhere. It is interesting to read a book part by part. It leaves a lot more to the imagination and the author has written a good story that can be nicely split to leave readers wanting more.

Tanith is a dominant vampire picking up men from clubs to satisfy her needs. She loves to have them begging after her although she knows it is only because they are human and weak. Sometimes Tanith gets fed up with the men who plead for more but she needs the blood.

Kieran, her prey for the night isn't as human as she believes. The night starts off as normal but it is soon clear that the man in her bed isn't under her spell like her previous victims. Kieran is playing with her and he has a message to deliver. He wants Tanith to know that picking up men and letting them go isn't a nice thing to do. The men she throws out when she is done with them are left crazy. A friend of his was one of her past conquests and he wants to know if she feels sorry for what she has done?

Fooled, the tables are turned. She is suddenly the one being dominated and the man is the one with all the control. Is she in more trouble than she can handle?

This first part in the chapter by chapter book release makes an impact. Sexy, dark and mysterious, the author has managed to start off the book by giving away just enough information for the reader to understand what is going. She has also left out enough to have people coming back for the next installment. Try the first part - any paranormal romance lover will be back for more and more.
