Both Shayne and Child are wonderful authors I have to say that I enjoy Child s storyIt hadof the humor I like in a book Enjoyable read. Read Vampires in Paradise by Maggie Shayne Vampires in Paradise by Maggie Shayne 4 stars Book 17.5 in the Wings in the Night series, although this definitely reads as a standalone Anna Seville is dying So she decides to do something she has always wanted to do sail She sells everything and buys a boat, which ends up being destroyed in a storm Luckily vampire Diego owns a private island nearby and saves her Diego wants nothing but solitude and privacy Can he resist Anna when his mind and body want two different things This is a Vampires in Paradise by Maggie Shayne 4 stars Book 17.5 in the Wings in the Night series, although this definitely reads as a standalone Anna Seville is dying So she decides to do something she has always wanted to do sail She sells everything and buys a boat, which ends up being destroyed in a storm Luckily vampire Diego owns a private island nearby and saves her Diego wants nothing but solitude and privacy Can he resist Anna when his mind and body want two different things This is all about the relationship chemistry between these two characters Do not look for any other plot besides their feelings, because it s not there However, I enjoyed this book very much To me reading one of Ms Shayne s books always feels like I m wrapped up in a warm blanket.Immortal by Maureen Child 2 stars Emma Madison is in Scotland studying when she finds herself attacked by a demon who wants her family s specifically her mother s Campbell blood for blood rite Guardian Bain Sinclair saves her What will happen when Bain has to save her while realizing she is his mate Very, very short so everything felt rushed There was no time for character development, thus I didn t end up caring about either of them


About the Author: Maggie Shayne

I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, Alliteration Alert though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State Cortland County There arecattle than people here The nearest big cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies My road is barely paved The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.My house is a big, century old farmhouse I moved in here after my divorce in 2006 Just a little over a year later, the house, which I had named, SERENITY, burned It was 99% gutted, and I lost my two dogs, Sally, an 11 year old great Dane, and Wrinkles, my 14 year old, blind bulldog This was the culmination of my Dark Night of the soul, which had seemed to hit me all at once in 2006 2007 My mother died that year, after a 14 month battle with pancreatic cancer She was only 60 The youngest of my five daughters had left home that same year, and while that s not a tragedy at all, it felt like one to me Then came the divorce And finally there was the fire it seemed my darkest night wasn t quite finished with me after all I had lost almost everything before that point, and as I poked through the wet ashes and soot the next day, I realized that I had now been stripped all the way to the bone.No better time to start over And no, I didn t come to that realization that day there were a few days of wallowing in pity first, particularly the day after the fire, when I hit a deer and smashed up my car, which I was practically living in That s when I started to laugh Just sat on the side of the road as the deer bounded, uninjured and carefree, out of sight, and laughed It was just too ridiculous at that point, to do anything else And from there, I picked myself up, and brushed myself off, and said, okay, there s only one way to go from here Forward And that s what I did There I was at the age of harrurmphemmph, living in my one, mostly undamaged remaining room, with a dorm sized mini fridge, a futon, a TV, my cat nine lives and a laptop And not much else Though thank goodness the room that survived the fire, was a room that had its own attached bathroom Since then I have rebuilt my beloved home, which really has become my haven, my Serenity I share it now with my fianc , Lance, and we have accumulated quite the little family together Little being a relative term We have a pair of English Mastiffs, Dozer and Daisy, who weigh 203 pounds and 208 pounds respectively, and a little pudgy English Bulldog named Niblet, who is bigger than both of them, inside her mind We also have the aforementioned cat, Glorificus Glory for short, who adores her canine pups and keeps them firmly in line And we ve acquired a pair of stray cats as well, a mother and son, Luna Lulu for short and Butters aka Buddy Lulu showed up pregnant during a lunar eclipse, had a litter, and vanished again We found homes for all the kittens except one Butters We got him fixed and kept him A few months later, Lulu returned, again expecting This litter was born on the Monster Moon Again, all the kittens were spayed and neutered and placed in homes, and this time we got Lulu to the vet in time to spay her before the cycle could repeat Glory is not amused.She has a story of her own, my old Glory cat, having been with me before the Dark Times descended, she went through it all with me, moved with me, survived the fire, and remains with me still She s tolerating the newcomers Barely.My partner is an artist, a mechanic, a welder and an inventor, and the rumors are true, he is much younger than I
