When Alexandria's car goes off the road in a terrible blizzard, she has no idea night will bring a powerful rescuer and the start of an ecstatic sexual awakening. The moment Xandi wakes in Stefan's muscular arms, feels the heat of his body pressing against hers, she feels no fear. Instead, she allows herself to be taken by one who is more than a man, whose primal n ature is never far from him. As their connection grows, and as Xandi gradually loses her sensual inhibitions, experiencing pleasures she never dreamed possible, she is drawn deeper into Stefan's mysterious world, meeting the alluring beauty, Keisha, as well as the dominant and sometimes ruthlessly commanding Anton, who can have any man or woman he wants... in any way he wishes...

My Opinion of the Book

WOW! I don't know where to begin in describing this book. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the read! I recommend this book highly to anyone that loves their erotica spicy and in all varieties. I do not recommend this book to those that are offended by anything beyond the normal when it comes to sex. This book has a little of everything... girl/wolf, boy/wolf, boy/boy, girl/boy/boy, girl/girl, girl/wolf, etc... you get the idea! At any rate, Kate Douglas does a fabulous job describing the detailed sexual events, yet also holds the plot of the story throughout the book. With all the steaminess that went into this book I can't imagine what will come in the latter books considering I know there are at least 4 more and also some short stories that go with this story! *blink* I wonder if I've finally found an author that will make me blush?!??!!?!? Nah! Who am I kidding? LOL!!! Anyway, as I said, this was an awesome book and I do recommend to those that are open-minded! ;)

From the Publisher

What could be worse than a vampirate? Half vampire, half pirate - shiver me timbers, how terrible they must be! Thankfully, most people will never have the misfortune of meeting a vampirate.

It's the year 2505 and the world's oceans have risen dramatically. In this new age, the vile practie of piracy is gaining ground, threatening seafarers of all types. During a mighty storm, twins Connor and Grace are separated when their boat is smashed. Each is rescued by a different ship. Connor is captured by a notorious band of pirates and forced to become one of them. Facing a different fate, Grace winds up on a ship of dark mysteries, imprisoned by its captain.

My Opinion of the Book

This was definitely not my favorite teen read, but still an enjoyable story. I'm actually looking forward to book 2 in order to see what happens next in the story. I do think it could have been a bit better written though and am hoping the author improves in the future books.

Book #33 - Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary) by Jeff Strand

ISBN: 1594263485
Format: Trade Paperback, 188 pp
Pub. Date: March 2005
Genre: Comic Horror
Series: #1 in the Andrew Mayhem series
Bought at for $12

From the Publisher

When you're desperate for money, searching for a little adventure, and aren't the most responsible person in the world, you can end up doing some outrageous things. Which is how Andrew Mayhem, an extremely married father of two, ends up accepting $20,000 to find a key...a key buried with a body in a shallow grave.

But what he finds in the grave isn't quite what he expected, and what begins as a simple evening of morally questionable manual labor turns into a really good way to die. Andrew finds himself investigating a murder while forced into a bizarre game of wits and courage played by an unseen killer with a twisted sense of humor. It's a game that will involve him with a group of filmmakers known as Ghoulish Delights, who are hiding a secret that will test every last bit of Andrew's nerve to discover.

And it's impossible to find a babysitter.

My Opinion of the Book

This is my second time reading this book. I read it several years ago as part of a bookring. My stomach didn't churn as much this time around, but it's still extremely sick & twisted!!! Jeff Strand is my all-time favorite author, though it frightens me that he can come up with ideas like he puts in his stories. I highly recommend this series to all fans of horror and comedy as Strand is the king of mixing these two genres! I plan to re-read books 2 & 3 soon and then I'll be awaiting the release of the 4th installment in the Andrew Mayhem series. I can't wait!!!

From the Publisher

For Lil Marchette, the owner of Manhattan's premier dating service for vampires (and a dazzling denizen of the dark herself), death is all in a night's work. Unfortunately, it's going to take more than matching up vamps to pay the bills and fund Lil's cosmetics addiction. Dare she add actual humans to the mix? Eager to diversify, she signs up for a popular dating show, Manhattan's Most Wanted (MMW), to pitch her expertise to the perfect target audience - eligible women looking for eligible men.

Of course Lil is trying to forget the one man she'd love to sink her own teeth into: Ty Bonner, the ultraseductive vamp who broker her heart after she gave him the hottest night of his afterlife. Problem is, she and Ty have an intense mental connection and she's sensing he's in deep trouble. Even worse, she soon finds herself heading for MMW's grand finale (cameras are so not a vamp's best friend). The race is on as Lil struggles to save Ty (and herself) before all hell breaks loose.

My Opinion of the Book

Still loving this series... Lil is great fun! I can't wait to see what adventures she gets into next and to find out if anything more becomes of Ty as he's so vampelicious. ;) This series is getting to be even more fun than MaryJanice Davidson's Undead series... though I love it as well. There are just too many great vampire books out nowadays... I need more time to read!!!
