“… a new paranormal romance which is a good light read but has plenty of heart…”
~ Under the Covers

Fleeing through the bayou and away from the men who are trying to catch her, the last thing Carolena expects is to be rescued. However, that isn’t her biggest surprise s her rescuer isn’t entirely human. When Carnage sees the human running through the swaps, pursued by three man, he makes a split second decision which changes both his life and hers forever. Because, now she has seen him, she can never return to the human world.

Am I smiling? I feel like I’m still smiling. I can’t help it, whenever I think of this book I get a big cheesy grin on my face. Because despite the dark, slightly terrifying visage on the book cover, this was an incredibly sweet romance. We are introduced to the town of Whispers which is a sanctuary for supernatural beings, such as gargoyles and vampires, so they can live without being harassed by humans. They have few rules, but one of them is that no humans are allowed. So when the silent Carnage, who lives very simply and apart from the rest of the community, brings back Carolena, Enthrall the leader of Whispers and a vampire is in a tricky situation.

If you’re looking for a fast paced romance full of twists and turns this isn’t the book, instead Neeley has written a really cute romance. Despite Carnage’s fearsome appearance there’s nothing cruel about him, he’s protective and earnest in his complete devotion to Carolena. Carolena has had her life turned upside down and now finds herself living in a village filled with mythical creatures and rather than being hysterical she quickly comes to appreciate the place and the people. Especially Carnage. Their romance was so adorable! I loved that despite Carnage having issues with speech Carolena never has issues understanding him.

In terms of an overall plot moving the book ahead it was a fairly slowly moving. What Carnage focused on was Carolena getting to know the residents of Whispers and finding her place within it. I really enjoyed getting to know the people such as the boisterous but lonely Destroy, another gargoyle and Enthrall the leader of Whispers. It really made reading the book a rich experience as Carolena falls in love not just with Carnage but with her new life. However, if you are after something fast paced and more story driven then this isn’t the book.

This was a great start to the series and I can’t wait to read more. If you are after a new paranormal romance which is a good light read but has plenty of heart then you need to give it a try.

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?
