Another book, another beautiful woman! Do I sound bitter? maybe. I long for a heroine that has some kind of physical flaw, instead of iridescently beautiful sugar white hair and perfect skin, I long for a blemish, some slightly adorable crooked teeth, hell I wouldn’t even mind a bad haircut, or a bad hair day! Alas it is not to be, and all of us average looking, need-to-lose-a-few-pounds women are doomed to never be loved by a Nightwalker. Like I said I may me slightly bitter.

Okay, now that little mini-rant is over I can actually ge on with the review! I have mixed feelings on this book, in some respects I liked it more then the previous two, whilst in others I was a little disappointed. What I liked a bit more then the others was the romance, although it still have the over wrought and over long writing style which makes me feel like I am on a steady diet of sickly sweet it also had something a little different. Kestra seemed to resist more then the others and didn’t give in almost immediatly to the Imprinting instead of a few days it took a few weeks which in Romanclandia is a really long time! But I liked it, I liked the push and pull between them. Of course she fell, and who can blame her with a sexy demon like Noah after her?

Noah; loyal, comassionate, stong and steady and god damn hot in more ways then one. As the only male Fire Demon and the Demon King he has a lot of responsibility and power; power he uses selflessly for the good of his people. But after seeing so many of his friends and family Imprinted he wants that for himself before it Beltane drives him out of control. I like Noah a lot, he isn’t my favourite that great honour goes to Jacob, but he definitely gets second place! I liked the relationship between him and Kestra, the gender roles seemed to switch with Kestra being the aggressive and military minded and Noah being teh compassionate one who would always strife for peace. Don’t get me wrong Noah was still alpha and RAWR about his woman, but he tempered that with control and gentleness, it was niceto see a male with such a soft side that ge displayed fairly openly.

What I didn’t like about this book so much was the way the Ruth and Nico storyline was pushed aside I want to know more about what they are doing and planning next. Instead we had rougue vampires to contend with, which although exciting I was looking forward to more the driving of the main plot.

As you can probably tell from this review and the others is that this series isn’t one of my favourites but I have enjoyed it so far and I am looking forward to the release of Adam.

About Jacquelyn Frank

Jacquelyn Frank lives in the Western North Carolina mountain area around Asheville with her ten male cats (no, that isn’t a typo) and about ten thousand voices in her head. Rather than take heavy meds to chase them away, (the voices, not the cats) she indulges them and brings their stories to life. She’s lived in many places and worked many jobs, which she says makes her ‘colorful, not inconstant.’ She is always rescuing one stray or another, be they animal or human, and thinks the invention of electronic reading devices could only be improved if they could just manage to make them smell like ink and paper. A self-admitted techno-geek, she loves all kinds of gadgetry.

She believes every romance should have a happily ever after.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
