With Her Last Breath

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Story, March 10 2004
This novel was just okay. I like the premise. Women on the run from dangerous man. Goes to new town to start over. Meets new guy who is still having trouble getting over his first wife. While they adjust to each other, she still has to be wary of the "dangerous man" she ran from. This novel did not flow well for me. If I love a novel I can usually read it in one sitting. I kept getting bored with the dialogue and sitting it down and then picking it up again. I guess I was expecting a little more action in the novel. Still, the characters were likeable, the story line was predictable but flowed. I guess I would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light Vampire Romance, March 10 2004
I collect vampire/lycanthorpe books and have quite a collection. Because of this, I have quite a few Amanda Ashley novels. All of her novels are very light reads. The characters usually do not have that much depth, and it is a good quick read if you are looking for a light vampire romance. Analisa is in a hospital dying when an "angel" comes and helps her to live. Analisa's family is very poor and when she leaves the hospital, she has nowhere to go. For some unknown reason she finds out she has a benefactor and is welcomed into the home of the mysterious Lord Alesandro. Lord Alesandro is a mystery to Analisa. He has money and has provided her a home, and she has no idea why. Also, she never sees her mysterious benefactor. Lord Alesandro is a vampire who is fighting a growing attraction to Analisa. This was a very predictable vampire romance. Still, I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good "Were" Story, March 10 2004
This is my first novel by Susan Krinard and it will not be my last. I really enjoyed this "were romance." Alexandra Warrington first met "Shadow" her best friend and wolf when she was a young girl. Now years later, she is physically and mentally scarred and returning to her grandparent's home to conduct research on "wolves." At her grandparent's home, Alex finds a hurt wolf and takes him home with her. The next morning Alex discovers her wolf gone, and a man in her bed with no memory of who he is. At first, Alex panics but she soon discovers that this man is in actuality her wolf. Alexandra decides to help him discover what happened to him to make him lose his memory. Also, during this time Alex finds herself growing attracted to him. Still, she has to be careful because a murder has also occurred that has all the markings of a "large wolf." This is a very good story. I connected with the heroine and really enjoyed her. I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars very very cute story!, March 10 2004
Okay I really enjoyed this story. It is definitely a light hearted read. Still, I fell in love with the heroine, Arian. Tristan Lennox is a billionaire who has always had an interest in magic. He is a cynic though and is not even sure he believes it exists. Still, he decides to run a contest that if anyone can show him "real magic" they will win one million dollars. Arian Whitewood is a "white witch" and she's not even sure how talented she is. Somehow she gets transported three hundred years into the future and ends up crashing into the building that Tristan Lennox owns. He believes she has come to enter the contest and is trying to swindle a million dollars from him. Arian, on the other hand, is trying to adjust to life in the present. Tristan finds himself attracted to Arian and her innocence, but is she a true innocent or is she a fraud? Wonderful story. I would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story, March 10 2004
I really enjoyed this story. It is a murder mystery, but also a contemporary romance. Dr. Catherine Cordell was almost killed by an attacker years ago. She fought back and lived. She moved to a new town and tried to forget what happened to her. Suddenly, killings began to occur that seem like a recreation of what Dr. Cordell went through. Dr. Cordell will have to work with Detective Thomas Moore to help solve this crime; while dealing with a growing attraction to Det. Moore even though she fears relationships since the attack. I am making this sound like your typical murder mystery novel, but it isn't. The characters are wonderful; the story flows and I would highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, March 10 2004
I really enjoyed the initial premise of this story. I tend to like serial killer stories and I also like stories concerning psychics. I thought this one was quite effective starting out, but started to fall apart and become unbelievable near the end. Still, I enjoyed the characters, I enjoyed the story line, and I would recommend.
Cassie is a psychic who left her home and moved to a small town to escape her old life. She was a very good psychic helping the police solve cases. In one instance though the killer knew Cassie was in his mind, and fouled an attempt for the police to locate him. At the same time this enabled him to kill a child. This event pushed Cassie over the edge and she shies away from all psychic activity. Of course a killing occurs in her home town and Cassie knows the killer is near. She has no choice but to go to the local police dept and obtain the help of a detective there, Ben. Ben and Cassie have to work together to catch the killer and deal with their growing attraction to one another. Predicable story, but likeable characters. Like I said the only flaw in the story to me was the ending - it did not seem believable to me.

One Night of Scandal I enjoyed this story and the main characters. I consider this type of book a "very light reading romance." Carlotta on the evening she is to make her debut decides to take a quick peek into her mysterious next door neighbor's house. Her neighbor mistaking her for a "lady of the night" pulls her into his home and ends up giving her a kiss. Unfortunately this kiss is seen by various members of Carlotta's family, and Carlotta is disgraced and forced into marriage with Marquis Hayden St. Clare. Hayden is a recluse distancing himself from society after his wife's death. In fact, many in society believe he has murdered his wife and have nicknamed him "The Murderous Marquis, " and are soon predicting that Carlotta will come to a dreadful end.
Very predictable but cute and enjoyable novel, I would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story, March 9 2004
If you are looking for a very lighthearted read, that you can read in one sitting, than this is your novel. Catherine has a twin sister whose middle name is trouble. Catherine's twin shows up at her home, and the very next day Catherine is dragged from her house by Sam McKade, a bounty hunter on the lookout for her twin. Sam does not believe that he has the wrong girl. There is no way that there are two identical long legged red heads. This is pretty much a road trip story as Sam fights his attraction for his prisoner while returning her to town to face her charges. Now throw into the mix the local mob who wants her sister dead, and you have a very cute story.

This review is from: Kill and Tell: A Novel (Hardcover)
This is your standard Linda Howard storyline. Heroine meets hero, she is being hunted, hero must help keep her alive.
Karen receives a package from her estranged father, a homeless vietnam veteran. Around this same time, she also receives a telephone call from the police in New Orleans informing her that her father was murdered. Karen has to find the strength to pull herself together enough to go to New Orleans to identify her father's body, pay her last respects and find him a final resting place. When Karen arrives in New Orleans she meets Detective Marc Chastain who takes one look at her and her "cold" attitude and decides she is one of those "unfeeling, uncaring, selfish" types who could care less about family or the fact that her father is dead. As Marc helps Karen make an identification of her father, he realizes he has made an error and Karen is actually very hurt but hiding behind a touch facade. He is touched and very attracted to her.
Karen soon finds out that she has even more problems than her father's murder, because someone is trying to kill her. Karen must work with Marc to track down the murderer before she is the next victim.
This was a good solid story. I read in one sitting. I would recommend.
