Book Spotlight: Shades of Pink 2014 Anthology

Here’s what VampBard’s Talking About: Author Kallysten is repeating her Shades of Pink anthology. As a fundraiser for breast cancer research, the 2013 anthology raised over $10,000. She’s hoping to meet that total again this year, and I’m hoping we beat it! Twenty-two authors have included short stories ranging from sweet to spicy. The anthology […]

Review: Only by HelenKay Dimon

Only Author: HelenKay Dimon Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I really was excited about reading Only, the second title in Helenkay Dimon’s Holton Woods series. The first book, Mercy, was fabulous as well. They do need to be read sequentially. If you don’t have the background from the first title, you’re going […]

Review: Midnight Everlasting by S.M. Stelmack

Midnight Everlasting Author: S.M. Stelmack Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: This dark urban fantasy, tinged with romance, immediately reminded me why I liked Undertow, the first title in The UnderCity Chronicles by husband-wife team, S.M. Stelmack. I still missed Jack, but was delighted to see Reggie make an appearance. The new main […]

Review: Linger by Lauren Jameson

Linger Author: Lauren Jameson Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: If you’ve not read Lauren Jameson’s In Vino Veritas series, you’re in luck.

Quickie Review: Tiger Lily by Vivian Winslow

Tiger Lily Author: Vivian Winslow Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Tiger Lily is the third novella in the Gilded Flower series, and although each is a separate title, this book is not really a stand alone. I sat down and read all three in one evening. I rated each individually, based on […]

Review: His Every Need by Terri L. Austin

His Every Need Author: Terri L. Austin Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Ohhhh. Myyyyy. When reading Terri L. Austin’s novel, His Every Need, I was reminded a LOT about several other novels I’ve read. While it’s reminiscent of the contemporary erotic romance that’s all the rage right now, there’s definitely something unique […]

Quickie Review: Calla Lily by Vivian Winslow

Calla Lily Author: Vivian Winslow Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: I think that the Gilded Flower novellas are great, short bits of erotica. I really like Lily Baron, and this thing with Gustavo and Alejandro in this book? Yummy. So glad Jack-the-prick is out of her life. Being the CFO of the […]

Quickie Review: Gilded Lily by Vivian Winslow

Gilded Lily Author: Vivian Winslow Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Gilded Lily, the first title in the Gilded Flower series of novellas, was a good introduction to the author’s style.

Review: The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

The Book of Life Author: Deborah Harkness Reviewer: Vampbard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: The Book of Life, third and final title in the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness was… Wow!
