Review: Dance Until Dawn by Berni Stevens
Rating: 5 stars
“Dance Until Dawn is such a moving, finely woven spell of a man and a woman finding their way to love. It is not difficult at all to imagine Ellie’s terror, and also it is so easy to hear the emotions in Will’s voice and actions as he brings the woman he loves into the world he dominates. Since she is my favorite vampire author of all time, it is a compliment that the world building and intense action of this novel reminds me of the Wings in the Night series by Maggie Shayne. And I do not give that compliment to new to me authors lightly, trust me on that. I had absolutely no hesitation in falling into the world that Ms. Stevens created in Dance Until Dawn. The characters are vivid and intriguing, the world and it’s lore are believable and the villainess is such a pure evil piece of crap, I had no troubles hating her on sight.”
“If you love Paranormal Romance, if vampires and their ladies fill you with anticipation, if you enjoy a knockdown, all out fight between the good and the evil of the paranormal world — then this novel is for you. I highly recommend Dance Until Dawn and I’m hoping for a sequel, or better yet a series in the future… fervently hoping.”

Do you Believe in Love After Life?
At twenty-five, West-End dancer Ellie Wakefield should be having the time of her life. The only problem is, ever since waking up in a leaky cellar belonging to three-hundred-year-old vampire Will Austen, she’s been very much dead. And to make matters worse, she’s since found that an aversion to blood and a fear of the dark aren’t very helpful—especially when you’re a fledgling vamp.
William James Austen has fallen hard. He’s spent the last year loving Ellie from afar, and now he’s finally able to be truthful about who and what he is. As the most powerful and revered vampire in London, he’s used to getting what he wants. But this time, Will might just have bitten off more than he can chew.

Book Review – ‘No Such Thing as Immortality’ by Sarah Tranter
Book Review ~ ‘No Such Thing as Immortality’ by Sarah Tranter ~ 5 Stars.
“For me ‘No Such Thing as Immortality’ is 100 times better than Twilight. Not only do the characters show huge emotional depth for acceptable and understandable reasons, rather than just being unreasonably broody, Sarah Tranter’s writing style is fantastic and electric, and I loathed the moments I had to put it down to go to my lectures.”
“The fear Nate experienced feeling all of Rowan’s emotions as his own was beautifully written. You could feel his terror leaping off the page. Imagine having to live for over two hundred years without needing to feel any pain and then have an emotional woman’s every feeling hit you and become like your own. Now, as an emotional woman myself, I can announce that that would be painful.
I loved the development of Nate and Rowan’s relationship. How she could be stubborn and teasing, yet as shy and nervous as you’d expect someone to be when they find someone they like. But I love how she didn’t fall into his arms with a swoon (at his sexy and beautiful Darcy like speech), and she made Nate work for it a bit. That’s my kind of heroine.”
“5/5 stars. A definite recommended read!”

A vampire does not have to feel any emotion not of his choosing. And Nathaniel Gray has spent two hundred years choosing not to feel. But when he accidentally runs Rowan Locke off the road, he is inexplicably flooded with everything she’s feeling, and that’s rage, and lots of it
He is consumed with the need to protect Rowan at all costs, including from himself. To Nate what is happening is unthinkable, and is pretty much as unbelievable as the existence of faeries.
But you see, there is no such thing as immortality.
This is Nate’s story…
