Dark Lover by Brenda Joyce

This is a masters of time series and book 3 of the rose trilogy. and again, i think i preferred the prequels although i have yet to read one more i think. but still it's enjoyable. well this is another book with highland warriors with great powers. it's getting late here and i'm sleepy so i'm quoting the synopsis right from the back of the book.
Ian Maclean's arrogance hides a terrible secret-for decades he was held prisoner by demons. not a day goes by that he isn't tormented by his darkest fears of powerlessness. now he is about to sell to the highest bidder a page he's stolen from the book of power-if one woman doesn't stop him.
Slayer Samantha Rose's latest mission is to recover the stolen page-and get payback from the only man who's ever rejected her. what she hasn't counted on is the raging attracting between them-or her growing realization of what maclean has survived. as the powers of the evil from this past gather, sam will do anything to help him-even if it means following him into time and facing his worst nightmares with him...
well if you have read the prequels before this, then you would have known that sam is a girl with attitude and it's proven here. you feel her pride and when she's embarassed, you feel that too. ian is...emo. i guess if that can even be described for heroesBP but he's emotionally scarred that's for sure and it'll take time for him to heal. anyway i hope you will enjoy this book too.

Dark Legend by Christine Feehan

This is another of the carpathian series. it seems i've been making a mistake by naming this genre as fantasy. well maybe not, but paranormal is more like it. learned it recently.
gabriel has awoken after being asleep for very long and the first thing he feels is an overwhelming hunger for blood. nearing darkness, he goes on a hunt for a prey but hears a voice calling to him, calming, sooting him, giving him strength to control this craving.
francesca is a healer who has been living among the humans for a long time. thought gabriel can only imagine how she feels like in his arms, he knows her taste will be addictive. yet he fears for her life and his soul if he gives in to his desire
hmm...i have to admit that i preferred the other dark series better. this was good too, but i guess i was hoping for a little more. but characters are really well done, and i was really surprised when i learnt about them. but truthfully and personally, i think this was not her best piece of work. but i still love her books. hope you guys will too.

Heart Quest by Robin D. Owens

Now this is the sequel to heart choice, the book i talked about in my earlier post of straif and mitchelle. this is illex and trif's story. trif is mitchelle's cousin. this was much better than the former i felt in my opinion. but it's only because of genres that i enjoy being included more here than in heart choice.
trif clover knows she has a heart mate and she is on a quest to find him; by even going from door-to-door with her charmkey.(this lets her find her heartmate by the way) but she has no idea that he has already found her. Guardsman Ilex Winterberry knows that trif is his heartmate but is afraid that he will only scare her away, what with him being twice her age and a short life ahead. he wants to be close to her, and she needs to be close to him. he faces his most difficult task yet as there's a killer stalking those with unstable flair psi power like trif's and he must reveal the truth of their destiny or else, leave trif in danger.
i guess it's because ilex is a guardsman,/policeman that there's so much action. there's suspense as well, this shows that the author is able to write different genres of books which is great. if not, i don't think i'd be reading a book with no romance. :P the next book that seems to be the sequel is heartmatch, a story about dufleur and saille. (the first is our heroine and the latter, our hero hehe) and dufleur happens to be the cousin of ilex. so i hope i'm able to find that book, it seems interesting from the sneak preview that i read. hope you guys enjoy

Heart Choice by Robin D. Owens

This book is a sequel of Heart Duel, a book that i talked about in an earlier post. this is straif and mitchella's story. the former was holm and lark's story. i was lucky enough to find the sequel and in fact, been even luckier to get the sequel for this one, which is heart quest. but that is for later
straif is the last of his line because of a genetic disorder. his whole family has died and so, he is driven to find a cure for this disease and to protect future generations of blackthorns from the disease. nothing else matters to him until he meets mitchella clover.
but mitchella is not a woman straif can build a family with for she is unable to bear children. due to this, he is unwilling to go after his feelings. mitchella knows that a family is founded on love and not just blood, but unless straif can accept this, they can't be together no matter how much they want to be.
i enjoyed this book though not as much as i did heart duel i think mainly because there wasn't much action here. but the feelings were more than enough. it moved my heart. this is a really good science fiction romance, one that made me wish, once again, for powers like theirs sigh hope you enjoy yourselves
