Three pretty good paranormal romance. Very quick read. Somewhat graphic love scenes.

Night's Darkest Embrace by Jeaniene Frost: This is the first time I've read Frost's Nocturna world. I'm familiar with her Cat/Bones books though. Nocturna is an alternate universe where certain creatures can cross from this world. In Nocturna, you are either partial demon, full demon (not welcomed), fallen angel (most people think they don't exist), or some type of paranormal creature. Mara is a partial demon who tries to figure out what happened to her cousin years ago when a full demon captured them. Mara escaped with the help of Nocturna's leader, Rafael but not her cousin. Like in Frost's Cat books, Mara is very impulsive and young but clever. There were parts I thought Mara was too rash but I have to keep in mind she is young. Overall a very cool read. I'm interested to see if she has other books in this universe she created.

Mated by Shayla Black: This is part of the Doomsday Brethren series where a few selected warriors fight a naughty wizard intend to taking over the world. Raiden's has a twin brother named Ronan whose story can be downloaded for free at Black's website. The two stories are really similar and filled with "I'm not good enough for you so I'm going to break your heart because I know what is best" attitudes. Given, Ronan isn't as much of a martyr as Raiden is. Both Raiden and Tabby are both very annoying characters but somehow I kept reading. Tabby does whatever everyone tells her to do for the most part and is so forgiving with Raiden which makes me want to slap her. She does grow a backbone towards the end. Not my favorite story but it has peeked my interest in the series to see if Black's other stories are different. If I had to pick between the two, Ronan's story was better.

Darkest Temptation by Sharie Kohler: So glad I read this story because I forgot Kohler existed. I have read her first two book in the lycan hunter series and then forgot about her because she doesn't seem to publish as much as other paranormal series. I was very happy to rediscover her and look forward to reading the other two books of her series. Here it is a little different because it's more about the lycans than the hunters. My only complaint about this story is that I hope Black returns to Luc and Lily to see how they are doing. It seemed more like an intro to a bigger story.

Overall, a worthwhile read.

Review is for J Frost's story: Night's Darkest Embrace
This takes place in Nocturne. Nocturne is a realm where it is always night and those with demon blood (known as Partials) can travel to. The modern world exists too, with Partials traveling back and forth. Other realms exist too, but only Pureblood or Fallen can travel too.
Mara is hunting for the Pureblood that kidnapped and murdered her cousin. As teenagers (15), Mara and Gloria went into Nocturne after being told not to by their parents. Mara feels guilty and returns once she is of age. She has a huge crush on Raphael who saved her from bringing kidnapped/murdered. She also knows he isn't telling the complete truth about what happened. She knows he is hiding something. The big question is- is he trust worthy?
This is an interesting world and did take some time for me to get into. Once I did, I really enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down. Wish there were more in this world, it's an interesting one.

The only story I read in this book was Night's Darkest Embrace by Jeaniene Frost.

As a teenager, Partial Demons Mara and her cousin, Gloria, find an opening into the demon realm of Nocturna. While in Nocturna they are met by Purebloods who kill Gloria. Mara is nearly killed when she is rescued by Raphael, the leader of Nocturna. He sends Mara home, telling her not to cross into Nocturna until he is an adult. Now twenty years old, Mara is back in Nocturna, seeking revenge against the Purebloods who killed her cousin.

This was an interesting story with lots of action and mystery. It didn't hook me like Frost's Night Huntress books, but it was an enjoyable read. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

I enjoyed all three stories, but especially liked Sharie Kohler's Darkest Temptation. It has a different take on the traditional werewolf mythology with a haunting love story that makes me long for more stories about Luc and Lily.
