ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Winter's Orphans: Book One of the Shadow Fae Trilogy

Harriet Klausner said:

"The powerfully descriptive WINTER'S ORPHANS is a wonderful fantasy tale focusing on an underground movement of a hybrid race trying to survive while purebreds oppress them out of fear. The strength of the tale resides in the belief that the Seelie, Unseelie, and Feylings exist on the real world of Niurne. Elaine Corvidae accomplishes this difficult feat because the cast, regardless of racial makeup and in spite of the classic romance between Duncan and Mina, seem bona fide so that the audience visits an orb that serves as the center of a fabulous fantasy thriller."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Wolfkin: Lord of Wind and Fire-Book One

Harriet Klausner said:

"Fans of romantic fantasy will fully enjoy WOLFKIN, a strong entry due to the fully developed key cast members and a realm filled with magic that seems to exist. The story line is filled with twists and turns so that the reader is never sure what will happen next, but Elaine Corvidae never loses sight of the prime theme of her tale. Readers will look forward to more adventures in the world of Jenel perhaps a final confrontation between an amoral magic practitioner and an angry young man with an ax to grind."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's The Crow Queen: Lord of Wind and Fire-Book Two

Kelley A. Hartsell said:

"Ms. Corvidae shows yet again her penchant for weaving engrossing fantasy tales that will keep one reading through to the last page of the book. The worlds presented in this series are vividly drawn, so that one will see them through the characters' eyes. Emotions are wrung from readers, causing them to gasp in fear, feel the shiver of danger, and the heat of desire. This story is most definitely a fantasy tale, by no means a romance, but there is the underlying love story of Yozerf and Suchen to satisfy fans of that genre.

Tantalizing glimpses are also given in to the greater story that everything spawns from and is leading to, which are sure to be resolved and explained in the final book of the series, due out at the end of this year. Go out and pick up a copy of this book today. While at it, why not also pick up the first book in the series, WOLFKIN, and be prepared for a new adventure."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Tyrant Moon

Harriet Klausner said:

"TYRANT MOON is an exciting romantic sword and sorcery tale that hooks the readers from the very beginning when Arrow recruits Thraxis. She is a courageous, intelligent fighter while he is an incredible character breaking the mold of Gandulf type wizards with his trepidation to even leave his sanctuary. The use of flashbacks enables the audience to understand what occurred to the heroes especially Arrow's people, but becomes overused and disruptive to the prime plot. Still Elaine Corvidae enchants sub-genre fans with a potent spell that the S&S audience will thoroughly appreciate and feel compelled to obtain her other novels."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Dragon's Son: Lord of Wind and Fire, Book 3

Kelley A. Hartsell said:

"This story is incredible! Beautifully written with vivid imagery and strong plot, Ms. Corvidae once again enchants her readers with her otherworldly tale. She also has incredibly talent for getting to her reader's hearts and emotions. This reviewer laughed, screamed, cheered, and cried throughout this story. Some scenes are so heart- wrenching that one will want to have some tissues on hand for wiping up the tears bound to flow as a result.

The conclusion to this book, and the trilogy, is so incredibly climactic that one will be left breathless when all the dust settles in the final battle. It is shocking, stunning, dramatic, and intense, gripping all of the emotions of the readers tightly in its grasp. Villains finally get what they deserve, and the real heroes shine forth in all their glory. Brilliantly done Ms. Corvidae! No one can read this book and not feel some stirring of emotions. And THAT is the mark of a wonderful storyteller. This reviewer has become a lifelong fan after reading this incredible saga in its entirety."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Winter's Orphans: Book One of the Shadow Fae Trilogy

Linnea Sinclair said:

"WINTER'S ORPHANS is a superb ORIGINAL dark-ish fantasy with a great romantic subplot. Mina, the heroine, is gutsy, flawed, cocky and sincere. Duncan, the hero, is intense, dedicated and torn. It's a May-December situation but it's much much more than that. It's a tale of dark magic, of age- old revenge and totally original world-building in Corvidae's setting of Niune. It's fantasy - and superb fantasy - first, and romance second. Keep that in mind. This is not a romance novel where the characters coincidentally wear pointed ears. This is REAL, flawlessly written fantasy with a grabber romance subplot. I loved the book."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Elaine Corvidae's Heretic Sun

Harriet Klausner said:

"HERETIC SUN, the sequel to TYRANT MOON is an action packed romantic fantasy that will be enjoyed by romance and fantasy genre fans. Elaine Corvidae is a wonderfully creative storyteller who knows how makes her audience adore her naively innocent hero as he overcomes magical and mundane obstacles while staying true to his beliefs. The heroine is his complete opposite but their relationship works because they believe in each other. Hopefully, readers have not seen the last of Thraxis and Arrow."

"YESTERDAY'S DREAMS takes the typical fantasy theme of good vs. evil, but places it in modern times with modern day dilemmas as opposed to the usual medieval fare. The setting and Kara's disbelief make for a fabulously fresh tale that hooks the audience from the moment Lucien sees his prey.

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Gracie C. McKeever's Flames Past

Ann Leveille said:

"FLAMES PAST throws together an alcoholic heroine and a hero who is running from his past and gets pure combustion. Sean is a genuinely nice guy, and Echo, though she obviously has her weaknesses, is a spunky, loving heroine. This story is "spiced" up by the fact that the main characters have some ESP -- Echo being empathic/telepathic and Sean and their son Athan are pyrokinetic. These talents are mostly used as flavoring for the character's pasts more than anything else. From the first introduction of Athan we are hoping that he gets to have a real family and Sean and Echo's still-lingering passion for each other is very enjoyable. FLAMES PAST presents a host of interesting and fun characters for the reader, mixes in a little real-life turbulence and comes up with a nice story. This book is recommended for anyone who's looking for a romance with a little less fantasy and a little more humanity."

ParaNormal Romance Reviews review of Jean Lorrah's Blood Will Tell

Harriet Klausner said:

"BLOOD WILL TELL is an exciting romantic police procedural vampire tale that is filled with action, strong sleuthing, and a fresh perspective on the blood-eating creatures of the night. The tale starts with action as the mystery opens rather quickly with the puzzler how does a middle aged person become geriatric in seemingly hours? From that powerful opening gamut, the plot smoothly blends elements from the two genres into a brilliantly conceived, cohesive tale. With superb lead characters and a complete support cast, fans of supernatural mysteries or just vampiric tales will want to read Jean Lorah's terrific novel that shows talent will tell."

Alaina, a kind and intelligent woman, must adapt to this new time and help Richard to see her true self.

Long And Short Romance Reviews review of Cyndia Depre's Oblivious

Rose gave this romantic suspense 4 Books.

"Ms. Depre had created a murder mystery that will have you wondering until the last moment "who done it" and she does so while also making you wonder about the romance developing between Olivia and Tucker. See, Olivia has standards. She won't go to bed with anyone she's not married to (the main reason she has multiple husbands) and Tucker has decided he doesn't want to ever get married. So, they are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea when romance starts showing it's ugly little head.

This was a fun book and I'm looking forward to more of Ms. Depre's work."

Dee Dailey gave Ed's mystery 5 Hearts! Great job!

"This is one of those old fashioned types of private eye thrillers that will always be fun to read. There's a lot of interwoven mystery, some romance but not for the hero and a lot of trails leading to the culprit if you hang with the story and help track them down. That's not hard to do since Mr. Lynskey gets us into the story right away and keeps us there."

The Romance Studio review of Susan DiPlacido's Trattoria

Glenda K. Bauerle gave Susan's contemporary romance 4 Hearts.

"Securities, both material and emotional are a major theme in this story, for each and all the characters. And so realistic are they portrayed. Material securities in that the restaurant takes the central role of value for the main characters; the core of their existence. The possibility of losing it exposes the lack of belonging and happiness each feels within his or her life. The emotional "insecurity" scenes are written very well. All the typical thoughts back and forth describe just the way a person might feel. The only two characters who actually are not overloaded, overwhelmed in their lack of self- worth and confidence are Danny's two roommates and they are a perfect contrast with the other characters in this story. Hilarious!"

Diane T. gave Elaine's paranormal novel 4.5 Hearts.

"This book tells of a world of magic and wizards, also dragons and a clan of people who can become wolves. But not werewolves as we know them. I enjoyed this book immensely. The love story is so true to some of the problems men and women still face today. Suchen fights for the man she loves, against her brother and any who would hurt him. And for the first time, Yozerf wonders if he can trust a human. Will their love survive the problems they face? This is the first of three books in this saga. The Crow Queen Book 2, and Dragon’s Son Book 3, will continue their story. I definitely plan to get them. This is a wonderfully well-written story and I’m curious to know what happens.

Joyfully Reviewed review of Brenna Lyons' Fairy Dreams


Patrice F. Joyfully Recommended Brenna's fairy novel! Great job, Brenna!

"Fairy Dreams can best be described as a slice of life drama loaded with romance and fantasy. Ms. Lyons offers a fabulous account of what it means to be Human and Fairy by examining both sides of the fence with clarity. She doesn’t make excuses for the ugliness in the Human world, nor does she gloss over the faults found with the Fairies. The story illustrates the benefits of Humans and Fairies, their strengths and weaknesses, and the ability for both races to evolve, learn, and grow. It explores the healing powers of love, forgiveness, sacrifice, and acceptance.

This novel is a must read for fans of romance and fantasy. Readers leaning more towards contemporary drama will dive right in. The social and psychological concerns are given a modern examination that will keep you glued to the pages. Fairy Dreams is a credit to the author and the publisher in its quality and content, which is why I can recommend this book with complete confidence."

The time period is realistically portrayed, right down to the battles between the Celts and the Saxons. Cornelia Amiri obviously did her research before ever beginning to write this story.

The major secondary characters are well developed and are influential in the outcome of events. Elegant, Doll, Nevin, Rowan, and Francis play important roles in Tammy’s finding a happy-ever-after.

The psychological undercurrents in The Oaks of Lindores, the real needs that drive the characters to do the things they do, reveal some poignant moments in the lives of the major characters.

"Solar Wind is an interesting suspense and a romance I found to be very sweet.

Kira is a young girl on her own and while Zeke’s brain tells him to get as far away from Kira as he can, Zeke follows his heart instead. It was this quality that drew me to Zeke. He’s such a wonderful, tough hero who falls so hopelessly in love.
