Romance Rewind: Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle

EXPERIMENT IN TERROR

“Underneath the flashy lights and the slick streets and the throngs of people passing in the warm night, there was an undertone to the city that reeked of madness.”

As it’s Halloween this month I wanted our Romance Rewind post to have a spooky feel, which got me thinking. What are the scariest books I’ve read? The answer was easy: The Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle. Halle does a fantastic job of wrapping horror and romance together in a terrifying and sexy package then throwing it at her readers. There are some genuinely scary and creepy moments in these books and as someone who HATES horror films I can say if this was ever translated to the big screen, I don’t know if I could watch it.

“Somehow, by dealing with the dead, I had never felt so alive.”

Then there’s the romance. The at times frustrating, elating, frustrating, heart breaking, frustrating, sexy and did I mention frustrating…romance between Dex and Perry our main protagonists. This series keeps you on the edge of exasperation and desperation and I know, I know, it sounds awful! But it isn’t. It’s wonderful. I loved it. I HAD to keep reading, sometimes because of what was happening in the story line, sometimes because I wanted to get beyond the scary bit and sometimes because I needed to know what the hell the situation was between Dex and Perry. Combine all that and it had me glued to the pages until the end of the book.

So, we would like to introduce you to Dex Foray and Perry Palomino and we implore you to try it out this Halloween!

 

“This love just is.  It exists, and because it exists, I exist.”

Also… we’ve done a series of posts before – albeit just before the series had ended – which are a lot of fun! Any giveaways that may have been attached are now long over, but I recommend you go and check them out!

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?

This series surprised me. It just sucked me in and, like you said, I HAD to know what was going to happen. Fortunately for the new readers they can read straight through without having to wait!
