Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 01/31/12 02:44 PM

I once knew someone that we would actualy staple the last chapter of a paperback book together to stop her from always reading the last part first.

I am on the Shadowfever book, the last of the series, and I need someone to please spoil it for me. I am reading on an e-reader and I NEED TO KNOW IF BARRON IS DEAD. I really, really, really need to know.

yes, the Red Barron was shot down by Snoopy in his Sopwith Camel, he is dead...

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 01/31/12 03:20 PM

Barrons once said "Don't believe anything is dead until you've burned it, poked around in its ashes, and then waited a day or two to see if anything rises from them."

With all this talk about the Barron brothers, I'm going to need to read these books. grin

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 01/31/12 04:19 PM

They are great. I love that fact that I got in them so late that all 5 are available without any wait time. I will now be looking for a new series. Maybe that one. LOL. Ward? Dagger? Brotherhood? Something like that.
Posted By: RR Becca

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 01/31/12 04:12 PM

Oh dear lcrew - Barrons and The Brothers are two separate series. smile

Barrons is something of an anti-hero in Moning's "Fever" series.

"The Brothers" we often refer to are the Black Dagger Brotherhood characters by JR Ward.

See? Lots and lots of swoon-worthy reading material. Enjoy! grin

Ra's Chosen also a swoon worthy series- A little more graphic sex scenes then these others, but i'm enjoying it alot. smile

I just pre-ordered. Thanks for the heads up!


When I looked that one up, I noticed a Lords Kindle bundle for $8.38. It has four of the stories in it, but I did not check to see which titles or which numbers.

I'm almost done with the first book, I'll lend it to you when I am done. Not quite as well written as Fever, and lots more sex,but still very very good. Love the actual story, and the Warriors are yummy- almost barrons like- a little les anti-hero and fewer tattoos, but still dangerous and over protective and yum. smile

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/02/12 12:36 PM

kms, don't ever feel bad for reading what you like. We read what we enjoy! Who is to say that what they are reading is any better?

BTW, my hubby said he can tell when I'm at a "good" part in the book. blush

Novellas should not be allowed in the book section. I hate when I start onw w/out realizing, then 20 minutes later the story is over.
Does it seem to any of you that the freebies are either smut or Christian? I think that's so odd.

Back when Twilight first came out and before the movie idiocy took it over, I was a member of the Lexicon fan board. Somebody over there dubbed this phenomenon "happy wife syndrome" and stated that intelligent husbands would feed our habit instead of whining about our bookwormish ways. My hubby just says, "you've been reading your naughty books again, haven't you?" blush wink

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/02/12 01:50 PM

Mine too. The BF pretends to be all upset when I'm reading a "good" book, cause normally ends up meaning he's in for a treat later and he's "upset" about having to put forth the energy. lol

Especially a Supernatural smut book. oh yum.

Oh No! Give me a good smut book over pretty much anything else- (Especially videos) any day.

Toward the end, i wasn't attracted to my ex anymore. Times i knew he would want/expect me to perform my "wifely duties" i'd have to find something fairly smutty to read for about and hour before in order to get things going. One of many reasons our marriage failed. lol

I tend to be fairly open about everything- so if its TMI for you tell me. lol

I heart Barrons.

I started the Ra series this past week. They are Ok. They are entertaining but not the sexual tension and humor you saw in the Fever series. I'll finish the series because the Kindle versions are all under $5 apiece.

The first book in all the series discussed herein are now in my Kindle as samples. That helps me remember what was recommended here.

Posted By: manimal

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/06/12 05:53 PM

That is one of the things I really liked about the Faefever series... the build up of the attraction and relationship between Mac and Barrons. While I do enjoy an 'instant lust' story every now and then (hello Lords of the Underworld!)... I think KMM made the right decision to build it slowly for her series.

Agreed about the Sexual tension- She tries, but it's not as there as the Fever series, i think that has more to do with the skill of the author then the story- But I do see the humor in them. Maybe it's unintentional sometimes- but still funny. The first one is actually not my favorite, I think Akori's Book (number 4 I think) is my favorite. I finished the 6th last night- and someone else needs to get there so I can talk about it. lol

The first few Anita books are really, really good. The last few have been bad Cinemax After Dark scripts blush , and the quality of her writing has seriously deteriorated.

And I'll still go buy the next hardback on release day. smirk

Anyone read Julie Garwood? I loved her older books set in the Highlands. Those guy had some "manhood" I'm telling you!
Posted By: HRH Okie Banker

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/06/12 11:36 PM

manimal - Nope. That was on a need to know basis and I needed to know. grin The best part? I put off reading the second half of that last book for two days so I wouldn't have to finish the series. Seriously, how goofy is that?

QM - I have every Julie Garwood on Kindle that is available. I love her the mostest of all authors in that genre. Old and new but the older are my favorite. Bet I've read them all at least 5 times and some I read once a year. I check Amazon periodically to see if any new Garwoods are available for Kindle and grab them.

I have every single Julie Garwood out there, I love her stuff!!
Okie she seems to be on a one a year schedule with the modern day series, actually the last one took a year and a half, i was so mad

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/07/12 03:15 PM

^^Yes but we can always re-read one of her classics while we wait.

It's funny, I like all of Julie Garwood's books, historical and present but with Catherine Coulter I only like her books of the present and think her historical books are silly.

I will buy anything Jayne Krentz/Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick without knowing anything about the book beforehand.

I broke down this weekend and dug out my BDB books. I started with a reread of Rhev's book. Last night I started John Matthew's.

And I can I just add my own warning to RR Becca's on Laurell K Hamilton's Meredith Gentry and Anita Blake series...they are like Lay's Potato chips...you can't just read them once! smirk

Finished Ra and Started reading Lords of the Underworld series. smile didn't get very far though.

Quick note for those of you reading my Ra series- the 7th and final book - Ra's book- is a novella. It's not bad, but nothing like the other 6, and personally not worth the $$ except that it finishes the series.

OMG Okie I am the same way on both of those authors. I love JAK/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle. I never ever thought I would get into anything considered paranormal but between KMM and JAK I am in love with paranormal. I started the Dark Hunter series last night. WOW oh WOW!

I know- I do wish they would do it the way iTunes does- Lump it all into one transaction at the end of the day- There are days i order 2-4 books at a time, and then it shows in my account 2-4 transactions, and generates 2-4 emails. Annoying!!

I bought the Dark Hunters as a lot through eBay. That was before I had my Kindle but it was much cheaper to buy them used. I'm not much of a fan of used books but in this case I made an exception.

I just can't handle the stress of waiting because I've been notified that I'm the 5th patron in line for that book. I did try once to wait my turn.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/24/12 06:41 PM

Nice... I'm cruising later in the year, but I need to stock up on my downloads since there's no Wi-fi (or obscenely expensive wi-fi...) I have a tablet, but I have both the Nook and Kindle programs, mostly so I can get the freebies both have to offer although I think I like the Kindle better.

I'm downloading like mad now, but I have a feeling none of the books you ladies are recommending are going to make it to the end of the year. wink

Minion, I read the first book in her Shadow Keepers series this weekend. It was a good read and I'll most likely continue with the series. I was sucked (no pun intended) into the story right away. While technically it is a paranormal romance it is a little on the dark side and some parts were a little gruesome.


OK - which one is the first book? Skimming through the Kindle listings, only 4, 5, and 6 are numbered.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/27/12 03:16 PM

I am plowing through the Brotherhood series. I'm on 6 now. Was home with a sick pup all weekend so I was able to just read and read while cuddling on the couch with her! It was nice.

Edited - reading doesn't mean you can spell.

1) When Blood Calls - $.99 Woot!
2) When Pleasure Rules
3) When Wicked Craves

I believe that 4, 5 and 6 will be released this summer.

OK, now I don't feel like an emotional miscreant. I cried during several parts of that book too. You know the writer is superb when the words (the story) affects you that way. Of all the paperbacks I owned and donated when I got my nook, that one was kept for re-reading at a future date.

I LOVE Anya. Have you met her friend William yet? He's a hoot. still havn't figured out his deal yet, but i think he's found his HEA, and is in such denial! lol

I know this was mentioned earlier in the thread but if you like some humor with your paranormal romance you all should read some of Katie Macalister's stuff. I'm currently working on a reread of her Aisling Grey series (dragons, yum!) but her Dark Ones are fabulous as well.

Though i love Amun, and i'm worried about his HEA- I can't see a way for them to be together without the others wanting to kill her. They aren't going to forgive her past easily...

I've had it on my kindle since it came out, but I'm still a half a book away. Strider is still kidding himself about Kaia. So I'll start on Paris in the next day or two, depends on how quickly I can get through Strider's book. smile

Oh wow I beat you to Paris's book, you must have so much more of a life than I do!! I cried for Kaia at the end of the book! It is really weird, the print on Paris's book is much different than any of the others. I think my fire says I am 22% of the way done.

Has anyone read any HP Mallory? There is a bundle price on Nook for 5 books for $10, the first 2 and the first 3 of two stories about witches... They look light and fluffy, but cute nonetheless. Probably worth it, even if they're only decent...

Yep. A couple of them are pretty good, and the rest are decent. I think there was only one that made me think it was a waste of $...maybe the most recent one? I can't remember now.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/10/12 01:10 AM

I skip the flash back in Zsadists book, and then some of the flash back in John Mathew's and Vish's. I read it all the first time thru but now I like keeping with the present day stuff. Some lesser stuff I will skip too but some of it is funny to me, like when Mr O pops himself in front of Mr X! I read a cut scene about the lessers on her web page and it was very sexual between them and the Omega

Oohh, will have to check this out too. I thought I would have a "Brother" or two left to download for my vacation, but I'm afraid I will finish before the middle of next week. I am almost thru John Matthew's. I will need to stock up for my cruise next week.

What should I get next since I've finished the Fever Series and close to finishing the Brother series? Would welcome suggestions. Other wise I have to re-read this entire thread and would rather start a new series. Wait - I guess we can now call this thread a series, huh? grin

Game of Thrones is excellent, but can be a bit intense. There are multiple arcs and timelines that you have to keep track of simultaneously, and the books are LONG. For vacation reading, it would probably depend on whether you want something that is going to completely absorb your attention or something light that is easily picked up and set down.

Dark Lover is part of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series (the "brothers" you keep seeing us drool about).

Demonica is also excellent.

Lords of the Underworld are pretty good.

There are a LOT of Dark Hunters.

I couldn't get into Ra's Chosen, either. I got about 3/4 through the first one and abandoned it. That's pretty rare for me.

I would go with the dark hunter or lords of the underworld. A lot less of the lords than the dark hunter. I am not sure what series I liked more. Probably the dark hunters but the Lords were quicker reads for me. hmmmm I guess they are tied I just can't choose one over the other!

KMS (and others who have read the Lords)

Just found this: Darkest Angel

It's an Anthology, but the first Story in the books is a short story about how Bianka and Lysander got together... smile

And This: Wicked Nights

IT's a spin off- The angel warriors (Starting with "Zach") grin

Demonica
Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter
Dark Hunters
Dark Lover

Ra's Chosen – couldn’t get into


If it were me I would choose the Demonica series first. Also, check out the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian. They are BDBish and I really enjoyed them.

Thanks Loralie!!! I was wondering how those two hooked up!!!

I am on Rehv's book now, evidently those that ordered the autographed copy of Torh's book may get it early. JR Ward said to have plenty of tissues on hand for this book. Praying no one dies in it! When I was rereading Phury's book I realized I really don't care for his story, I like the other story lines in that book but for some reason (maybe the wizard) his story didn't hit me as much as the others.

I was disappointed in the book! I did not think it was up to par with the others and there was something else that bothered me about it but I can't remember right now!!!

really? i liked it- especially the Battle and after.

My least favorite was Amun's book- which sucks, cause i love him as a character. not a big fan of Haidee though.

Yep that was my other problem, it is one thing to use historical/mythological figures like that but to kill them off bothers me to no end!
Posted By: Loralie

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/16/12 03:27 PM

oh no, i think that's great. it solved so many problems, granted it was a little TOO neat and tidy, but it also helped to start simplifying the story line. there was so much going on, it was kinda hard to follow every once in a while...

And she's killed off/changed several gods and goddesses. Killing Cronus and Rhea was just par for the course.

I had decided to catch up on some other new releases (JD Robb), thinking I would take a paranormal break after having read the entire Brotherhood and Ra's Chosen series. Well that is not working out. I am going to have to go back and download some more paranormal. I found myself not wanting to read the new Robb, even though she is one of my most favorite. Surprised me.
Posted By: kms

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/16/12 04:16 PM

I have been meaning to get the new Robb, but I always like to reread the series before a new one but so many of my authors have had books coming out and now with this thread I am getting new ones all the time, I just have not had the chance to go back and reread the series. In fact, I never got around to reading Dallas to New York or New York to Dallas (can't remember the title)

I was disappointed as well. I found the side stories more interesting than Paris and Sienna's. I read that she's writing a spin off series on the fallen angels (or maybe just the angels?).

It's the angels under Lysander and Zachriel's command...

If you go to her website, the first one should be out later this year, then the 2nd, THEN Kane's book...

Broke Down and downloaded the Hunger games last night... I've been seeing previews for the movies all weekend, and it looks really good, so i figured i better read them.

Just finished Aeron/Olivia's book in Lords of the Underworld. Did not like Olivia much at all, felt Showalter didn't develop much of a real character for her. Loved Aeron (obvs.) for his self-sacrifice. Started Gideon/Scar and feel much better about this one. Feels like the other books in terms of my connection to the characters. Sometimes I just go onto Showalter's website and stare at the book covers.............................. wink

OK....I've finished Lover Reborn, and without giving too much away, I think this is one of the best novels of the BDB. There will have to be many more novels written (Scribe Virgin willing) to incorporate the Brotherhood and their battles, women, men, and the Chosen. Makes me wonder how long we have to wait for the next one!

I read Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend (and am now on the second book). I read "Fifty" in one sitting. Now I'm having a dilema because I am not quite 1/2 way through the second book and I have Lover Reborn screaming "Read Me!" from my Kindle.

I only have another 100 pages or so until I'm done, and I agree, I'm finding the Quinn/Xcor story lines better than Tohr's. I don't know, his storyline just isn't grabbing me like the other books/brothers.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/30/12 01:07 AM

Ok I just finished Lover Reborn. I am torn, it wasn't my least favorite that would be Phury's book but I thought it, well I am not going to say anything until everyone is done. I do look forward to the future though!! I am on pins and needles wondering who the next one will be about!
Posted By: TINKerBell

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/30/12 11:38 AM

Tohr's history, the subplot with John Matthew and his connection to Tohr and Wellsie and No'One I think is well written. I never thought there would be a dedicated novel to Tohr, so it was well anticipated and well written, in my opinion. I agree that the Phury storyline was the least favorite, but then again, I think it was needed as a precursor to future plotlines.
Posted By: RR Becca

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 03/30/12 12:19 PM

Manny & Payne's book is still my least favorite, mostly because it was sort of "V & Jane, round 2" more than Manny and Payne's book. In both that one and Lover Reborn I thought some of the strife was not as organic as it could have been, and that the resolutions were a bit pat. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't finished yet, so I'll stop there - but you people need to hurry the heck up so we can discuss this!!!! wink

I've stumbled across a fun bargain series called "Dark Swan" by Richelle Mead. The first book is Storm Born, and I'm currently about halfway through the second one: The Thorn Queen. The author plays pretty fast and loose with several tenets of folklore and theology, but in a fun way. The writing quality in the beginning of the first book had me all set to not like it, but I was quickly sucked in by the characters and storyline. And at less than $4 per book I can overlook some minor editing flaws. smile

I was telling Mani last week- I have been reading romance and paranormal romance for awhile- And then I read Hunger Games, which is technically YA. I kept waiting for katniss and peeta to get it on, and it wasn't happening, and it was kinda pssing me off. I had to keep reminding myself it was YA...

Another tactic. If you are really good friends with someone and they don't mind giving you their password, you just log off as you and sign in as them. Then you can read all of their books. Now that I got my Nook tablet, I use my old Nook to sign in as my friend.

I'm on Molly Harper's second Naked Werewolf book. I'm liking them a lot. She's pretty funny. She has a vampire series as well that I'm going to check out.

Becca - did you see that LKH has a novella coming out on the 24th in the Anita Blake series?

I just started JR Ward's 7 deadly sins series, starting with Covet. I like it so far. It is supposed to be very stormy here starting this afternoon and I am looking forward to a reading weekend.

Be careful out there Okies. We are in for a bumpy ride this weekend.

I am finally all caught up in the Lords series. Read pretty much all of Paris's book on Saturday. I like how far he was willing to go to get what he wanted, even if it meant destroying himself.

Now comes the looooong wait until Zachareal's book in June. I am going to love him, I already know it. smile smile Otherwise, Stridey and Gideon are my favorites I think.

I've finished all the Richelle Mead adult books, so am currently working my way through a bunch of the cheap and free stuff I've been cluttering up my Kindle with. Nothing impressive so far. Any reccomendations (other than 50 Shades of Gray - I ain't paying $10 a book).
Posted By: RR Sarah

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/16/12 08:06 PM

Too bad those Fifty books aren't lendable. I really enjoyed Molly Harper's Naked Werewolf series. She has a sense of humor along the same lines as Katie MacAlister. There are only two books but they aren't cheapies (7.99 I believe). I'm reading her Jane Jameson series now. They are good but I don't like them quite as much as the Naked Werewolves.

Bought a "recommendation" last night: "Eternal Lover," a collection of short stories by Jackie Kessler, Richelle Mead, Hannah Howell, and Lynsay Sands. Kessler and Howell are new authors for me but I've read Sands for years and of course Mead is a new favorite. smile I'm about 3/4 through the first story (Kessler) and it's pretty good so far.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/23/12 06:48 PM

I've still only read the first in Lynsay Sands Argeneau (sp?) series. Someday I must read the rest!

I've been working my way through Shelley Laurenston's Pride series. I bought her three book Magnus Pack series last year because they were cheap and I ended up liking them a lot. Her characters are shifters (my personal favs). While her stories are steamy and some of the characters can be quite raunchy she manages to also deliver humor. These last two books I've read in the Pride series have had me laughing out loud...I mean bellying laughing! I love it!

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/26/12 12:53 PM

I wouldn't define it as amateur smut. It's just different. The main character, Christian Gray, had a messed up childhood. I think the author did a great job making you fall in love with him, even though you didn't think you would. I didn't realize this series was so blown up. I read it before there was any talk about it. I am reading it again because I flew through them too quickly the first time. I definitely feel it's worth reading. Try to borrow it, instead of spending $30.00. You may be pleasantly surprised.

I didn't know what the story was about. I just bought it sight unseen after reading a recommendation from someone in this thread. If i read the description first, I would've never picked it up. I didn't think it was my kinda thing either. But, suprisingly, C. Grey is my kinda thing. blush

My MIL asked me what I was reading and nearly blew a gasket when I told her. As I explained, don't judge if you don't know!There are many books listed here that have more descriptive hoot hoots than 50 Shades.

I would never have thought the BDSM would be at all ummmm intriguing but I have to say I thought the books were great. You do fall in love with Mr Grey. Are they lendable? As I now have prime thanks to my mom, I would be more than willing to lend them to anyone that would like to test drive the books. My sister recommended them to me and they will be re-read enough times to make the price ok.

kms, I'm with you! i'm reading them a 2nd time, just so I can discuss with my friend and her daughters, who are reading it now. It makes for much more fun discussions. wink

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/26/12 05:35 PM

It does make a book that much more enjoyable when you are able to discuss it with others. Part of the reason I love this thread so much!

I don't think a movie will ever be able to convey the intensity of some parts of the books, in fact so much would not be able to make the screen.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/26/12 06:04 PM

The books are small, but there is so much story packed in them. I don't see how they would be able to give the story justice on the big screen. And, Ryan Gosling does not a 50 make!!

Posted By: The Minion

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 05/07/12 12:27 PM

I am halfway through the 2nd book now. (My 2nd reading)I flew through them so quickly the first time, so I'm reading them again. blushI don't understand the critics who complain. No one is forced to read them. madThey are just about a young couple who fall in love. The twist is exciting, not cruel. It's about consensual sex, not rape. There are plenty of erotic books on Amazon for free. What's so different about this trilogy? Because we are going to have a Fifty Shades Baby Boom in 9 months does not make it a bad thing. wink

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 05/07/12 12:48 PM

Are these lendable? I'm curious what all the hype is about since I've heard from people I trust that the editing is shoddy and the "smut" kind of tame.

I'm just too cheap to pay $9.99 each. grin

I stumbled across a series by Jo Davis called Firefighters of Station Five. They are romance with suspense. I've only read the first but I liked it a lot. The smut is a little steamy but doesn't overpower the story.

Just finished Once Burned the new Jeaniene Frost series w/ Vlad. Loved it! I've always been a Vlad fan in the Cat & Bones book, so I thought it was great.

Also read Wicked Nights, (Zacherel's story) by Gena Showalter. I really liked that one too.

Anyone else read either?

I read Zacherel's as soon as it came out, I loved it too. Hard to say which I liked better.

I just started the second book in the Firefighter series at lunch. I'm so tempted to put it aside and read Zacherel's story. I'm slighty OCD about book reading though so that probably won't fly.

Vlad is a secondary character in her Cat & Bones (Night Huntress) series. You would probably be OK just reading this one to start with, but I think you appreciate the jokes and his actions more if you've "known" him from the other books.

Ditto this! If you haven't read the Night Huntress & Night Huntress World books, you definitely need to! As RR Becca said, you would probably be fine reading Once Burned, but you come to love Vlad in the other books (at least I did blush) and they are sooooo good!

I like a "good" romance novel as much as anyone. I recently picked up a freebie on Amazon. It intrigued me since I am recently divorced, but I got more than I bargained for. It's a comedic romance that is HOT! Oh, if I could find a guy that could do....(well, you get the picture!) It's called something like "Divorced, Desparate and Depressed." I highly recommend the "good" parts!

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/26/12 01:10 PM

Sorry to change series, but I just finished Zachareal's book last night. I loved him so much in the beginning, but he got kinda soft for me at the end. I was waiting for him to step in and kick some angel/demon butt, but it just never happened. Then, the more I thought about it, I realized that in many of the Lords books, the stories become more about the lead female character overcoming something than the men.


Kinda liked Zachie better as the unemotional hardarse tho. wink
Posted By: Loralie

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/26/12 01:48 PM

I'm Halfway through Zachareal's book, and i'm noticing the same thing. I loved him as a cold warrior, but his shell seemed to crack WAY quick. He decided he was going to forgo his CENTURIES of no touching almost overnight. i guess i would rather have them really fight against it, or not fight it at all, then this half- a$$ no, no, well okay.

i say all that, but at the same time, i read half the book in one day. would have finished it if it weren't for that pesky work thing.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/31/12 11:10 AM

I'm in the BDB Fan Club, too!! It has been years, though, since I read any. It's a funny story how I started reading it. My washer broke the day before Christmas, about 6 years ago, and while I was sittting in the laundermat, I picked a book off the shelf. As soon as I started reading it I realized how great it was. I grabbed the ones there, got yelled at by the laundermat owner, then ran to the store to pick up anything I was missing. All I kept thinking that year was, "my washer broke so I would find this series." grin

Does everyone have a favorite brother from the BDBrotherhood? I found I had a favorite Lord (or two) in the Lords of the Underworld series.

Every time I think I've got a favorite I change my mind. There's just too much yumminess to choose from!

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/31/12 01:32 PM

My fav is Butch, with Wrath coming in a close 2nd.
Posted By: RR Sarah

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/31/12 01:45 PM

It's so hard to choose a favorite but right now it is probably John Matthew followed closely by Rhage.
Posted By: RR Becca

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 07/31/12 01:54 PM

I was a toss-up between Butch and V, but then V turned into a whiny little emo b****. Rhage is just a little too happy. Right now I would have a hard time choosing between Butch, Wrath, and John Matthew...but Qhuinn isn't trailing them by very far.

Agreed. Especially since I don't know a lot of the brand names she mentions and therefore have no idea what she's talking about. It's gotten to the point that any brand name I don't recognize gets automatically replaced in my head with "outrageously expensive." grin

You ladies might want to try the Sons of Destiny series by Jean Johnson:

Eight brothers, born in four sets of twins, two years apart to the day-they fulfill the Curse of Eight Prophecy. To avoid tempting their destiny, the brothers are exiled to Nightfall Island, a land where women are strictly forbidden. But, when the youngest of the mage-brothers rescues a woman from another universe, their world is altered forever.

There is a book for each brother. Romance and smut all rolled into one!

I've read her naked werewolf and Jane Jameson series. They're pretty good. This book is a spinoff of her Jane Jameson series.

Ditto for me.

But ladies, I do need some help!! I'm starting to panic as I'm getting to the end of the Dark Hunter series and I don't have anything lined up to read next. I'm hoping someone can help me out with another series that I've missed. I'm a really fast reader (as it appears most of you are too) so I love series because they give me something to look forward to. I've read & loved:

Black Daggar Brotherhood (my personal fave)
Dark Hunter/Were Hunter series (probably my second fav, OMG, Acheron's book!)
Lords of the Underworld
Demonica & the Riders spin off
Night Huntress/Cat & Bones & all the spin offs
Harry Dresden

I've probably missed something major along the way. I haven't read the Karen Moning series (funny that I've been reading this thread anyway), so is that a good one to start? I really like the BDB, Lords, Dark Hunter types that each book is about a different character. Any suggestions from anyone as to what I've missed? I'm very near panic mode.

Give the KMMs a go next. Personally, I would suggest starting with her Highlander series so you have some of the background that gets worked into the Fever series towards the end.

Shelley Laurenston - Pride series
Katie MacAlister - Dark Ones and her Dragon series

Yeah, I would probably read the Dark Ones first. There are three sets of Dragons but you need to start with Aisling Grey, then the Silver Dragons, and the most recent Light Dragons.

I believe it came out after Fifty Shades. A nurse who was tending to my hubby saw me reading my Kindle, so asked if I read the series. I laughed ans explained how I read them before the hoopla, and yes, enjoyed them. She suggested Bared to You. I read it within 2 days. It seemed to be a run-off ofr Fifty Shades, but definitely NOT as good. It was a quick, easy, no brain necessary read.

I agree! The Fever series is my favorite, but the Highlander series is more typical stand-alone romance novels. Fever is a much darker story (probably why I like it). KMM's website will give you a nice reading order for the Highlander series, as well as lots of background info.

Beware - they are literary crack. Sarah and I think she's written a compulsion spell into them somehow because - even though the books aren't that great and the writing is atrocious - you can't stop reading them!


True statement. I had to box the Merry series and her Anita Blake series up and hide them in the closet so I don't keep rereading them! laugh

I got so frustrated with the Anita Blake series that I quit about 1/2 through and I just could pick it back up. I may have to try this one.

I have the same problem. I need to go out and re-look at what they have and perhaps put my name on a few waiting lists. I just realized how goofy I am in that I'll wait for Amazon to drop the price but I won't wait for the Library to have a copy available for me. Guess that I just like to own them because I do re-read and quite frequently.

Here's some info on new romance novels from my library newsletter. I'm not sure how "racy" any of them are, but I'm always looking for something new. If anyone gives them a try- please report back!

Beautiful Sacrifice
by Elizabeth Lowell
Published 2012 by William Morrow & Company

Houston-based archeologist Lina Taylor and former Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Hunter Johnson join forces to locate four ancient Mayan artifacts that turned up during a drug bust and then vanished. Clues point variously to grave robbers trying to sell the valuable pieces on the black market, narco lords using them in ritual killings, the revival of an ancient cult, and Linaas own shady aristocratic family in Mexico. As Lina and Hunter dodge bullets and trade wisecracks across the Southwest, Lowell (Death Echo) deftly incorporates creepy basement corpse discoveries, sleazy antiquities dealers, crumbling jungle tombs, charmingly sinister relatives, fascinating archeological elements, and a well-realized, completely invented Mayan god. Less deftly handled is the attraction between Lina and Hunter; their turgid ruminations often read like an awkward second skin stretched tightly over the primary story. But these moments are scarce as Lowell quickly and smartly returns to the breakneck pace of her intriguing narrative

Under a Vampire Moon
by Lynsay Sands
Published 2012 by Avon Books

In the 16th installment of her long-running Argeneau series (after The Reluctant Vampire), Sands lightly combines romance and humor. Carolyn Conner, a middle-aged advertising executive in the process of divorcing her abusive husband, is on vacation in St. Lucia, where she meets Christian Notte. The centuries-old vampire is immediately attracted to her as a potential mate. In order to circumvent Carolynas nervousness and soothe her fears about being attracted to a ayoungera man, Christian pretends to be gay, enlisting her as his beard around his family (who are all in on the plan). Nothing can stop their blossoming relationship, save for Carolynas mysterious illness and possibly the truth about Christian. Sitcomesque hijinks ensue, courtesy of Christianas eccentric kinfolk and the increasingly unwieldy scheme. However, the chemistry is genuine, the love scenes sizzle, and the resolution satisfies.

Somebody to Love
by Kristan Higgins
Published 2012 by Harlequin Books

A "New York Times"- and "USA Today"-bestselling author is back with a hilarious and heartwarming new story about a rich girl who discovers that a little hard work may be just the thing she needs. Original. After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns--a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father's wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she's not thrilled...even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist's assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn't the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn't the only thing that needs a little TLC....


All for You
by Lynn Kurland
Published 2012 by Jove Books

Peaches Alexander is thrilled to receive an unexpected invitation to a weekend party given by the handsome, eligible Duke of Kenneworth. The only problem: Stephen de Piaget, a stuffy medieval studies scholar who seems determined to get in the way. Peaches has absolutely no desire to get involved with Stephen, until a quirk of Fate sends her hurtling through time...

UNLESS THERE'S SOMEONE TO CATCH YOU.

Stephen de Piaget has been leading a double life: respectable professor by day, knight-in-training during holidays and summer terms. When Peaches goes missing, Stephen knows he's the only one who can rescue her from medieval peril. Little do they know that the greatest danger they'll face won't be the business end of a sword, but their own unruly hearts....

Looks like there is more than one book in this series but they are all really short. 60-80 pages or so. May have to try this since it's free.

Some more books from my library Romance Newsletter- I haven't read any of them but here they are:

Breakaway
by Deirdre Martin
Published 2012 by Berkley

Jacket Notes:
Rory Brady was Ballycraig's golden boy, the local lad who moved to America and became a professional hockey player. But he broke his promise to Erin O'Brien-and never went back for her. Now Erin has moved on, and Rory must race the clock to prove to her that the man she fell in love with is still there. But can happy-go-lucky Erin risk it all and give another chance to the man who broke her heart?


Catch Me a Cowboy
by Katie Lane
Published 2012 by Forever

Once readers get past the good ol boy banter, theyll appreciate the rewarding, if not terribly deep, love story between high-spirited Shirlene Dalton and her redneck neighbor, Billy Bubba Wilkes, in Lanes third Deep in the Heart of Texas contemporary western. Nouveau riche Shirlene has to return to her trailer park roots when the bank forecloses on the ostentatious mansion she shared with her late oil baron husband. As she tries to get her home back, she also has to deal with the four foster children squatting in her ramshackle trailer. Bubba finds Shirlene amusing, but vows to avoid offering her a tour of Wilkesville because of his own questionable plans for the town of Bramble. He doesnt expect her tough exterior to reveal a tenderhearted, mothering woman just trying to make her way. This slow-paced story is perfect for a lazy summer afternoon. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (Apr.) Copyright 2012 Reed Business Information.
Publisher's Marketing Text:
Shirlene Dalton has it all: a dream marriage to a man who spoils her rotten and the most outrageous mansion Bramble, Texas, has ever seen. But when her husband unexpectedly dies, Shirlene finds herself right back where she started-in a rundown trailer on the wrong side of the tracks. Never the type to let a little bad luck and a whole heap of heartache get her down, Shirlene is ready to prove to the local gossips she can make it on her own . . . until she ends up living next door to the most tempting cowboy in town.
Billy Wilkes has a score to settle and a plan to wipe Bramble right off the map. But when his sexy, redheaded neighbor figures out what he's up to, his good ol' boy charm won't be enough to save him. With the town on his tail, Billy will have to come clean quick-or kiss Shirlene goodbye.


Seduction of Lady X
by Julia London
Published 2012 by Pocket Star Books

Jacket Notes:
The would-be Earl of Ashwood sets his romantic sights on a forbidden prize in the enchanting third novel from Julia London's addictively sexy new series.The surprising news that dashing steward Harrison Tolly, illegitimate son of the Earl of Ashwood, ""is the rightful heir to his father's estate comes at a most inopportune time. With a wedding on the horizon and a baby on the way, a new life of privilege and prestige would be a blessing but for one problem: his heart belongs to another woman.Harrison keeps his desires for his employer's wife, Lady Olivia Carey, so hidden that even she does not know of his devotion. Her callous husband, Marquis Carey, went into a rampage after Olivia's troublesome younger sister returned from her tour of Spain pregnant, and Harrison impulsively stepped in to save the entire family from scandal. Now, like Olivia, he is trapped in a loveless arrangement. When a tragic accident claims the marquis' life soon thereafter, can Harrison seize his chance and cast aside one sister for another? Or will doing so expose the Carey family's darkest secret--and ruin his only chance to win Olivia's heart?


Coming Up Roses
by Catherine Anderson
Published 2012 by Signet Book

Jacket Notes:
The bestselling author of the Comanche trilogy sets this bittersweet, highly charged romance in the Oregon territory. Widow Kate Blakely knew nothing of love, and when she met her new neighbor, Zachariah McGovern, all she saw was danger. But Zach saw much more. Reissue. From "New York Times" bestselling author Catherine Anderson comes the emotionally gripping story of a woman who must overcome her painful past before she can accept a good man's love...

1890, Oregon. Recently widowed Kate Blakely is struggling to make ends meet on her small farm while trying to heal from the scars of her late husband's cruelty. When her handsome, brawny neighbor, Zachariah McGovern, almost dies while saving her four-year-old daughter from a near fatal accident, Kate is deeply wary of the man she brings into her home to nurse back to health.

Gradually Kate realizes that underneath Zach's rough exterior is a gentle, loving soul who is fiercely protective of her and her daughter. But as much as Zach longs for Kate's love, she knows she can't open her heart without revealing her darkest secret--a shocking truth that, if discovered, could destroy them both.

Okie, I had the same issue with my Nook...I bought the book and THEN found out I only got a 2 page overview. Our '1st addition' devices are outdated....kind of like a six month old computer. I ended up getting a refund for the book, then bought a Nook tablet, and lo and behold, I got the whole book when I transferred all my books, so I actually got it for free.

I ended up getting a refund for the book, then bought a Nook tablet, and lo and behold, I got the whole book when I transferred all my books, so I actually got it for free. BTW...SO worth getting it by any means available.....

Oh, she is writing a new series...about Dani...not sure if I'll read that one...


That's my problem then. I don't want a new e-reader. I read, exclusively, on my Ipad now. I actually loaned my K2 to my friend and she's been using it to more or less read thru my library. It needs to recognize that I have an Ipad Ap, that is color, and let me have the dagnabbit book. I do have needs you know!

LOL! Thanks but I will break down and get it on the way home tonight. I have a very hard time getting into all my free Kindle books when I know that one specific book is out there waiting for me. Panting for me. Calling me by name. My name wafting to me on the wind. I better stop here. grin

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 09/06/12 12:08 PM

So is anyone going to read the Dani Trilogy? Here's a synopsis:

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 09/19/12 04:48 PM

For all the FEVER fans... Just read this on KMM's facebook page. Turns out Dani's books are actually a continuation of the Fever series... books 6-8 told from her POV (and a few others). Books 9-10 to back to Mac's POV.

There are not enough exclamation points to describe how excited I am........ smile smile smile

Read Bared to You and woke up today to Reflected in You this morning. If you like FSOG you'll like this series, although to me Gideon Cross is a little more intense than Fifty was.

Also read and loved Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture by Sylvain Reynard...and was thrilled yesterday when he announced he was writing a third book...I am soooo in love with Professor Gabriel Emerson (or my version of him David Gandy) LOL

Also recently read Destined to Play by Indigo Bloome and I really enjoyed it...I think even more so because the characters are closer to me in age - kinda getting tireed of all the young twenty somethings getting all the fun and excitement LOL smile

I don't have a Kindle or Nook, so I have to wait until October 23rd. frown IMHO, Gideon comes across ALOT older than Fifty.

I saw Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture when I was browsing at Barnes and Noble the other day, but decided on Bared to You instead. Thanks for the recommendation on Destined to Play- yes, it would be nice to read about characters closer to my age as well.

The Hush, Hush series? They are good, I've got the first three books and I'm rereading because the fourth is coming out later this month.

ETA: What I love about these is through the whole first book, the main character isn't sure if her love interest is going to kiss her or kill her. Some really great 'almost' moments. smile

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 10/03/12 02:00 PM

Dark Waters (Celtic Legacy Book 1) Shannon Mayer

Overview of Dark Waters
The bond between sisters is stretched to the limit as they are thrown into the world of the Fae. As they learn their places in this new world, secrets and dangers from the past emerge setting them on a dangerous path; one that would see them face off not as sisters, but enemies. Add in a wicked love triangle and you have the start of a new twist on classic Irish lore.

Read the first of JR Ward's fallen angel books this weekend... it was good, but it wasn't an OMG-I-can't-stop-reading story. I really really liked that the story was in Caldwell with a lot of the same places and some of the same characters. I felt like at any moment the main characters could turn around and run into one of the Brothers. smile

Then I picked up Fever and started my re-read.

No worries Little Miss- We have a new employee no one bothered to mention until he showed up Friday (10-5), and both of the bosses are out on vacation from (10-8 to 10-12), soooo I don't know what to do with the fella. Needless to say, it has been "awkward" and very busy this week.

I did find the first chapter available on-line, and to me it seemed like you were beginning to see the depth of their feelings for each other, that it was more than just an extremely intense physical attraction. I was so disappointed there was only one chapter!! wink

You most def feel their intense connection, especially before during and after the rock concert smile (one of my favorite chapters) - Let me know what you think once you've read it.

So, I finally got my library fines down (charged a bunch of copies to my card and then forgot about them- oops)- and requested Bloodlines. It's the first in the series after Vampire Academy-

Another one I read that I'm gonna have to get the next in line is Graceling. I don't think it still is, but the first was one of my Amazon Freebies, and i LOVE it. less Vampires/werewolves, more magic and supernatural powers. Super excited to start reading the rest of the series!! smile

Love libraries. smile

I downloaded this but haven't read it yet. May start tonight. I've been wanting to read her Immortally Sexy series because it is supposed to be quite funny but they are expensive so I'm holding off for now.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 10/16/12 04:01 PM

I'm about halfway through Darkness Awakened. She doesn't spend hardly any time on world building so I'm still a little confused on "what" some of the characters are and the roles in their society. I like the characters and the story is interesting and there is romance. I wouldn't call it smut quite yet but then again I am only at the 50% mark. wink

Finished Iced last night. It was good, but (IMO) not as good as the previous books. Spoiler alert:

I thought the constant jumping between different POVs threw the book's pace off a bit, and the truly interesting, plot-advancing/character-developing scenes were buried between pages upon pages of inane internal patter.

I decided to finish the Georgia Kinkaid book before starting Iced. Got about halfway in (when she finally did something succubus-like) and now I'm hooked on figuring out that the deal is with Seth and Roman. Kinda like Carter too... reminds me of Zachareal from the Lords series.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 11/16/12 01:01 PM

Almost halfway through Iced. Still trying to navigate between the different POV as Becca referred to....took me awhile to get into the plotline, but it's gotten MUCH better!
Posted By: manimal

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 11/16/12 02:12 PM

Finished Iced. I really liked it. Dani's inner monologue had me laughing over and over again. The POV switching didn't bother me, as I am used to that from the BDB/Lords series. I liked how Dani's struggles mirrored Mac's a lot... not sure who to trust, felt like everyone knew everything and wouldn't tell her, everyone else had better weapons/powers... etc. I feel like it was a little slow in the beginning (which I expected since KMM had to set up a new storyline), but felt the action had picked up nicely by halfway through.

My FAVORITE part was:
Click to reveal..
All the posturing between Ryo, Dancer, and Christian. And Christian's internal battle--made him swoonier than Vlane in my opinion. OMG, the scene with the dead woman under his bed?!?! Yikes!! He inspired my new tagline. smile
Posted By: RR Becca

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 11/16/12 02:56 PM

I agree, mani - that was probably the strongest contributing factor to character development in the whole book. As well as just dang funny. grin


The POV switching in BDB and Lords doesn't bother me because it's third person voice. Bouncing around in first person voice bugs the cr@p outta me.

About halfway through Iced....still getting used to Dani's POV, but liking it better as I get more into the book. I am going to assume that you've all read KMM's Highlander series? Christian appeared in one of those books...although can't seem to remember which one. Was interesting to see the MacKeltars and Queen Aiobheal from that series intertwined into this one.

Ditto. It's a good feeling to know you will never run out of reading material to explore and perhaps find a new favorite, huh?

I also have a stupid need to finish a book that I paid for but I don't feel that way about a free book that I can't get into. Goofy, I know.

I'm reading one of JR Ward's contemporary romances that she wrote under the name Jessica Bird. I read her earliest one, Heart of Gold, which was OK. I'm about halfway through Leaping Hearts now.

OMG I know! I was interested to see how she would do a story with two men, but so far she seems to have nailed it. I think the way she built the characters, in a way that the fans would fall in love with them, makes it easier to jump right into their story.

Someone posted this on a BDB fan site, I thought it was cute and true...
Can you imagine the kinds of big brothers the Brothers would make? Rhage would tease mercilessly, and beat up any dates. Wrath would ‘lay down the law’, beat up any dates. Z would be quietly supportive, and beat up any dates. Tohr would help you talk out all your problems, and beat up any dates. Rehv and Phury would get you into all the hot spots with great clothes, and beat up any dates. V would help you with your college homework, and there would mysteriously be no dates left alive to… date.

Yes, I totally agree! Actually, the second time around, I skipped over all the Wizard parts and it was much better. And I had forgotten that a lot of stuff happens in that book. Now I'm on to Rehvenge! I think he is my favorite, him & Zsadist.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/19/13 09:32 PM

I love JR Ward for her ability to dance along that line in various moments throughout the BDB series. I give her a lot of credit for her ability to write those scenes in a way that keeps you focused on how much you adore the characters, and not on anything too graphic. If I thought about some of the things her characters do in almost any other setting, I don't know if I could read it. But the brothers capture you so strongly that she can push you just as far as she does them... and always pull you back just in time.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/19/13 09:42 PM

I agree with you mani, I love all these guys so much that I want them all to have their HEA no matter who that should be. I read one of her earlier books as Jessica Bird and I did not fall in love with the characters anywhere near as much as the brothers. She explains in the prologue of it that in her earlier writing she just sat and wrote, where as with her JR Ward stuff, she maps everything out in advance.

Ok, how did I miss this. I pre-ordered it, so I must have it, but somehow I didn't realize it was out yet! Dang, and I'm knee deep in a re-read of the Brothers right now (on John Matthew)in anticipation for Quinn & Blay next month. Ok, between this book, Quin & Blay, and the second in Vlad's series (Night Price/Cat & Bones spin off) which all come out next month, I'm going to be busy!

While I really liked Zach's book, I'm not too excited about Koldo, that will probably change when I start it, but it's going to have to wait until my re-read is over. I'm with you, I'm all about the Brothers right now! I can't wait for Quinn & Blay.

I am trying to do a reread on the Demonica series while I wait but I just can't concentrate on it. E has become Wrath, Shade-V, Wraith-Zsadist. I should just not read until LAL is out!!

I reread Tohr's book in anticipation of LAL. I'll probably skim through Payne's book as well. I needed to be refreshed on the B.o.B. as well.

I am a skimmer. I will just jump ahead by chapter to see who's POV she's in and go from there. A friend of mine is reading these for the first time, and I am trying really hard not to reveal who the couple is in LAL. I want her to figure it out on her own! So, needless to say, I told her to stay far faaaaar away from the Warden's fb page!!

In the interest of not spoiling anything for those still reading...click this button only if you want to see my opinion of Lover at Last:

Click to reveal..
I loved the story as a whole and am thrilled that Blay and Qhuinn finally have things sorted out. Qhuinn's journey especially was amazing to read. BUT...the ending was rather abrupt and a bit over the top for me, and I'm not exactly enthralled with where some of the side plots seem to be going.

They don't take as many shoes.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/11/13 07:21 PM

Finally finished LAL!

Click to reveal..
Loved Q's antics through the first part of the book through is initiation into the brotherhood. Watching him sacrifice himself over and over again for the brothers made me fall in love with him all over again. I loved Q's revelation at Iron Mask, and his breakdown was a long time coming, so the chicking out didn't bother me too much. The proposal was a little over the top though. I would have liked to see that in a later book (esp. since Blay kept talking about 'taking things slow' and that he could wait for Q to be ready to PDA, etc.). And where was JM in this? Q&B are his best friends, I cannot believe he wasn't more involved in their story.

Perhaps it was all the 'new' POVs Ward was writing. I am having a tough time with Trez and iAm's POV. Assail was a little easier to get into for some reason, maybe because he's like Rev. Glad she left things hanging with his chick, although, HELLO, didn't they just do this whole kidnapping thing with Xhex?

I absolutely LOVED the Thor/Layla scene in the field. I honestly choked up a bit as I read it, as lame as that sounds. The whole enemy thing and his future demise at the hands of Wrath makes their infatuation so painful to watch.

Oh, and I TOTALLY thought Layla was preggo with twins at first. That she was going to lose one then they would find another living healthy inside her.

OK mani, I have to differ with you.
Click to reveal..
I think Xcor lost his man card in this book. I get that she's going for the whole "a good woman can tame a bad man" thing with those two, but she's done that line so well with some of the other couples that seeing Xcor pull such a complete 180 so quickly rings a little hollow to me.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/12/13 01:40 PM

Good point Becca.

Click to reveal..
It is a delicate transition, and I'd hope she would be willing to put in the time and effor that she has with some of the other characters (ex. V or Tohr). You are right, it does make a better story when they have to go lower than low and fight their way back up.

With the next book being about Wrath/Beth, it seems X/L will be dragged out further. I have no idea how X couldn't NOT be killed by the Brothers for his treason, but she has found creative ways before to 'save' characters (like Qhuinn). I'm guessing she'll find a reason for the two groups to unite over a common enemy and fight together.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/12/13 01:46 PM

I'm gonna go out on a limb here.

Click to reveal..
I think they're going to find a loophole for Wrath and Beth under the heading of "closest blood relative" to provide the full-blooded heir. One of the guys of questionable parentage is going to end up Wrath's long-lost half-brother or cousin or something (heck, we've already got Butch and Manny in that bucket) and they are going to knock up a Chosen...bingo, heir requirement satisfied. I have a sneaking suspicion that the major plotline of "The King" will be parallel stories about more than one baby in that household and that her little announcement on that video was deliberately misleading.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/12/13 02:36 PM

And think about it. All the earlier stories
Click to reveal..
required the couple to sacrifice something pretty major in order to get their HEA. The last few, with the exception of Tohr, have been pretty inexpensive. So John Matthew had to give up his revenge on Lash. Big whoop. And Quihnn had to "come out." Again...meh. Where's Blay's price? Or Xhex's, for that matter?

I really want to know why the Murhder side-story that she spent so much time setting up in John's book got completely abandoned. It was (to me) far more interesting than whatever this cr@p is with Assail. And what about Lassiter? Is he just their mascot now or what?

why does she abandon some of the friendships? Like why don't JM and Mary talk anymore? Or Mary and Bella? Why don't JM and Beth talk, I mean, they are siblings and all?

It sure would be convenient if they 'needed' one of Xcor's men to sire a young for Wrath's line. Their histories must be intertwined from the Old Country somehow. It would also create a situation to bring the two sides together for the good of the race.

In Payne's book it is all made clear about who are the biological children of the Bloodletter and who isn't. Xcor was raised by the Bloodletter to believe he was his son, but Payne set him stright when he kidnapped her. V was the only biological son the Bloodletter ever had.

It definitely sounds like she's setting up more story lines. Assail/Sola, Trez/Selena and Xcor/Layla.

I did like it, it didn't take me long to read it. Well, at least for me smile. But, I kinda felt like Ward struggled a little bit writing it. Probably trying to be politically correct and not offend her readers with the Quinn/Blay romance.

But overall I did like it. Can't wait for the next book.

Whew! Just finished LAL on my lunch break! Here's my thoughts:
Click to reveal..
* I agree that Ward seemed to struggle a bit with writing this one.
* I do miss the interaction between all the other friendships.
* I wished she would have went back to the Murhder plot that seemed to seem a bit random in the last book.
* I really hope that the "solicitor" that gives Xcor the info about the "full blood line" heir is not Saxton trying to get back at Blay.
* The airplane scene was really great! I loved the interaction between Q & Z.
* The Luchas scene in the cabin was totally not expected. I knew they never finished his character, but did not see the vat of O blood coming.
* I thought the whole proposal at the end was a bit over the top, and not in a good way. smile

I know there is more to discuss, but I think my brain needs to have time to process it all. grin

I agree with all that Si. I did think LAL was one of her better books compared to some of the more recent couples (read: Phury/C, Payne/M). I fell for Q more and more as his struggle went on. In fact, she had me hook, line, and sinker until that dang Epilogue. Why did she feel the need to do that? I still don't understand.

I was reading another article about why people give up on a series, and Ward was cited for her 'changing the rules so everyone gets an HEA'. And everyone hated Phury's book. LOL.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 05/07/13 12:41 PM

I didn't *hate* Phury's book, but it was definitely weaker than the rest of the series...with the possible exception of Payne & Manny's. However, it probably says a lot about me that The Wizard was my favorite character in that story. He made me laugh every time! crazy

I didn't hate Phury's book either. I mean really, how can you hate a book you've read at least three times. smirk Definitely not on par with most of the others though.

And Payne and Manny's book...what happened in that again? laugh Oh yeah, there was a horse.

I think I discovered books again this weekend! I finished Thor's book, which took me over 3 months. I have never in my life taken that long to read a book. I then read Firefly Beach (cheapie Kindle), which I liked alot and then Nora Robert's Wiskey Beach, which I'm almost done with. All since Sunday. I have a whole list now - Quinn's and the new Jeffrey Archer and I'm free of Thor and can get on with my life. Yippee.

Wrath was my fav manimal.

I am on it, but don't really use it much. I did participate in a book challenge (read X number of books in a year) a couple of years ago, and as a result I often get requests to participate in book group reads or challenges through Goodreads as well.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 09/06/13 05:22 PM

It's definitely like Acheron's book only from Styxx's side and you get an entirely different picture. Again, I'm not that far, but without any spoilers, it certainly makes the things that happened to Acheron look mild. It's actually pretty hard to read some of it, I think the point could have easily been made without so much of the description of some of things.

I thought Acheron was a tough read. Styxx makes me cry just as much. His life was no picnic. I read Ash's book when it first came out, in hard cover. Big, heavy book to lug around. Anyway, I want to go back and read it again just to see the other side. It is funny how different perceptions can be. This one is gonna take a little while, though.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 09/09/13 01:45 PM

Don't watch Sons of Anarchy. Just by his pictures, I don't see a comparison, but hopefully, he will seem closer to the mark while playing the role.

No portrayal ever looks like I envision a character from a book. I look for the way they act as the book character. If it's believable or not. When you're reading a book, the picture pops in your head, and it's never the same as someone else's version.

So now that you three have finished it, is it worth reading? I loved Acheron's book, but since then the series has been in a pretty steady decline and I'd pretty much written it off. I haven't been able to decide if I want to commit to reading Styxx or not.

I really don't know what to recommend. I wish they were lendable and you could just read my copy. I have to say that Acheron's suffering has nothing on Styxx. I really don't know how this book fits into the mix. I think I need to reread the last 10% or so. Let me think on it and let you know. Takes me a while to process you know. smirk

Overall, it was good. But be prepared, like RR Sarah said, Ash's background is nothing compared toStyxx. It's very dark and depressing, but I liked having the other side to the story. And I liked how it ended.

As far as other reading material, I've been out and I hate it. I started reading the Eternal Guardian series by Elizabeth Naughton. Just on book 2, but I like it so far.

That makes me laugh at myself. I finished Julie Garwood's Hotshot this weekend and perused my electronic TBR pile for the next book. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. It was like looking in my closet. I've got nothing to read. Away I went to Amazon and downloaded the new JD Robb. grin This, in spite of the books waiting to be read.

Whenever I am out of material I re-read the Brothers. Always puts me in a fine mood. smile That being said, I am WAY behind with my TBR list.

Whenever I am out of reading material I re-read Julie Garwood. They are my all time favs.

So anyone reading/read the new Larrisa Ione Demonica series book, Reaver? I'm not quite halfway, but I'm liking it so far.

I have a few of her books on my kindle, I really need to try them. You like them?

And speaking of KMM (thread title), I heard she pushed back Burned to a January 2015 release date (had already been pushed back from April to July). I want to be angry, but her books are so good I know it will be worth the very long wait.

I have Reaver but haven't read it yet. Can't decide if I want to save it for vacation reading or not.

I am reading Kane's book (LOTU). I had to reread the end of Paris's to understand what's going on, but now I got it.

It's not bad. Not amazing, either. Gena Showalter's books have forever changed how I'll look at showers, though. laugh laugh laugh

<<<<< Hasn't read LOTU. Currently reading the first Dark Witch book by Nora Roberts. So far behind, but still buying/downloading books like I have a 3 month vacation coming up soon. grin crazy

Just this morning I saw a book trailer for a new series by Donna Grant called The Dark Kings... Anyone have any experience with her writing? It looks like there are (at least) 3 books coming out, starting with one at the end of April. And I think the men might turn into dragons....

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/16/14 02:01 PM

I've read some Donna Grant and actually have read a couple in the Dark King series. I'll have to go back and see if I can remember more about them.

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/16/14 02:25 PM

I did a quick look back. In 2012 Donna Grant published the first four books in the Dark Kings series. Technically they're probably novellas because they are about 100 pages a piece. I read the first three. Not sure why I stopped there because I did like them. Prior to that I read her Dark Sword (Highlanders with a twist) and Dark Warrior series. Dark Warriors is a continuation of Dark Sword and I have not kept up. Again, don't know why because I enjoyed them.

Hm. Interesting! The trailer made it look like these three books were all brand new. I wonder if she made full length novels this time? I'll have to take a look. Thanks RR Sarah!

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/16/14 02:32 PM

You're welcome! From the brief look that I had, it looked like she was re-releasing the first four and then continuing the series on from there. Probably have to put them on my TBR list. smile

These keep popping up in my recommendations. Thanks for the mini-review. I might have to give them a shot!

I've never read a dragons book before. This would be a first for me! The covers look mighty nice though!
Posted By: RR Sarah

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 04/16/14 03:06 PM

Her Dark Sword series is my favorite and the Dark Warriors is a continuation on those. But yeah, the dragons were (are) good too.

And you know, there is a fair amount of "romance". wink

I just noticed that. I'm not as excited about this one, I don't know why. I'm sure I will like it once I get into it.

Did you finish? I haven't gotten to it yet, I'm in a reading slump.

I've been trying to read Cadegan & Jo (the newest Dark Hunter), I've got 50 or so pages to go. Idk, but I just am not feeling the characters. Started out good, but then went into all this other stuff and I just can't get into it. Anyone else read it?
Posted By: RR Becca

Re: Karen Moning's Fever Series - Need spoiler - 02/24/15 04:42 PM

Yes on Burned, no on the Dark Hunters. I gave up on them a while ago.
