Tabitha March is a psychic who can see other people's dreams. She contacts Detective Nate Darling after she sees a murderous dream which is then reenacted in real life. Nate is cynical and disbelieving of her psychic power, but he is nonetheless attracted to Tabitha. When more bodies turn up they must work together to solve the crimes. Quick read, enjoyable.


At Twilight: Beyond Twilight / Born at Twilight (Wings in the Night)
Review Date: 7/10/2006


Two from Shayne's "Wings in the Night" vampire series. "Born in Twilight" brings together Jameson Bryant and Angelica. Through a government experiment, the two have a baby and must come together to rescue her. "Beyond Twilight" is a shorter story about Agent Ramsey Bachman who pursues and ultimately falls for vampire Cuyler Jade. I have to say I'm not usually a fan of vampire fiction, but I did enjoy these and look forward to reading more.

Sam, a bounty hunter mistakes Catherine MacPherson for her more flamboyant twin Kaylee and takes custody of her. There is also a dim witted contract killer after Kaylee. The book is a quick read with a nice romance. Not Andersen's best, but good if you like this author.

This is cute book- first in the Dundee series. Delaney wants a baby and is convinced by her friend Rebecca that one night stand is the way to go. When she becomes pregnant, she has to deal with Conner (the father) move to Dundee, his anger and the tarnishing of her reputation. Definitely a bit dated and so obviously an early Novak but like I said, it was cute.


Bad Boys in Black Tie: Good With His Hands / Miss Extreme Congeniality / Last Call
Review Date: 8/18/2006
Helpful Score: 2


Three steamy romances:
"Good With His Hands" by Lori Foster, "Miss Extreme Congeniality" by Erin McCarthy and "Last Call" by Morgan Leigh. If you are familiar with these authors and this genre you won't be disappointed. Foster and McCarthy are old hands at this and Leigh (who is new to me) fits right in.

Three short, steamy stories. McCarthy's is the best of the bunch.

When Kira Douglas tries to donate a kidney to her dying mother she makes a stunning discovery: she was switched at birth and is not her mother's daughter. She finds her mother's actual child and must convince this woman to save her mother. Along the way, attempts are made on her life and she must solve the mystery of the birth switch. Good mystery, definite attention getter!


Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered: Everything She Does Is Magick / Musketeer By Moonlight / The Con and the Crusader

Three of Maggie Shayne's paranormal romance stories:

"Musketeer by Moonlight"- tells the story of Mary Catherine Hammersmith, a PI on the run from the mob, who unwittingly conjures up a musketeer to assist her.

Three fun, flighty stories that were quick reads.
