Has anyone read these?  I have the first two books I'm getting ready to start reading (Bound by Shadows, Bound by Flame) and wondered what everyone thought of them?  I've never heard of this author before.  It seems there are 3 books out already so if they're good I'll have to get the 3rd one of course!

(I'll be posting them when I'm done if anyone is interested)

I'd like to know this as well! 

I do know that Anna Windsor  is a pseudonym for Annie Windsor, whom I have read and love. I'm wondering if her writing style is still the same.

I read the 1st one and gave up.  IMHO it's just another standard paranormal romance.  Girl meets boy, they deny their attraction, then of course they overcome the hurtles keeping them apart and we have a HE.  It's not a bad book per se, just not my cup of tea!

I like standard paranormal romance though, LOL! 

I'll be starting it this evening, so I'll let you all know what I think.

I read the first one and liked it...I also like the standard paranormal romance format.  I have the second on my TBR pile and will probably get to it this month; then post it.

I've read all three and liked them.  I also like the standard PN romance format.  It does put some interesting twists on the mystical though and focuses more on magic than on vamps or shifters.  There aren't a lot of the "typical" PNR books lately that revolve around magic as apposed as the "creatures of the night"  These books were very engaging I thought. 

I did have to take a break when reading them though--although I think that had more to do with me going in to a reading funk than a true reflection of the books.  But I did enjoy them and am keeping them around in to reread when more books come out.  And I alread have the next on my WL

I'm halfway through the first one and like it so far.  Its not a quick easy read like Lynsay Sands style, but reminds me more of Christine Feehan's writing style.  So far I like it enough to read the 2nd one.

That must be it!  I read one book by Feehan and never read another.  But like I said, I'm not a fan of standard PNR.  I'm more an UF girl.

Understandable!  I enjoy both but probably enjoy the PR more for the most part.
