Made the Grade: Imperia Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 305 KB | Release Date: March 2009 | Publisher: Harlequin Books

"The Stone Prince" (as of 2020 this novel has been retitled too: "Prince of Stone") [Imperia Series, Book 1] by Gena Showalter

My Book Summary : A brotherly feud gets out of hand ... turning one brother into a statue. Such things happen when they both have the powers of sorcerers. However, by the following day Percen finds that his vengeance against his brother, Jorlan, has to be delayed since Jorlan, now a statue, is no where to be found. Later he finds that their mother has sent Jorlan away from Percen's vengeance and also in hopes he'll find the one true person to complete him and cure him from the spell. Therefore, Percen sets out to find Jorlan and if he has broken from the curse when he does so, then he'll kill him.

But as only a day has passed on Imperia about a thousand years or so have passed on Earth, where Jorlan now happens to be waiting for that one woman to be the cure to his curse. Finally, that day arrives and his savior is Katie, a woman who is more likely to do the guy thing instead of the girl thing in any situation. However, to save Jorlan, Katie must do more then just kiss him, she must profess her love for him and mean it. Which scares the shit out of her! So, she tries to keep him at arms length as much as possible ... but how long can she truly keep that distance going? And will she be able to save him before Percen arrives to get his final revenge?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. I had such hopes for this book. *sigh* I mean it was good .... but around chapter 19 or so I was getting sick of Katie, who kept running away from her feelings just because she never believed what he said. I just wanted to smack her. But this book did make me laugh ... cry ... smile .... and it had a great ending!

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 2

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Catch A Mate | Playing With Fire | The Nymph King | Heart of Darkness : The Darkest Angel

Book Teaser :
"As you won't be getting pummeled in this house, I feel no responsibility to respond to that statement."
He crossed his arms and gave her an amused look. "Your denials grow tiresome."
His self-assured pitch irked her, so she placed her hands on her hips and glared at him. "Did you ever consider the fact that I could have a boyfriend? Someone I'm in love with and committed to?" ~ within Chapter 4

Made the Grade: Heart of Darkness : The Darkest Angel [Lords of the Underworld Series, Novella] by Gena Showalter

Format: On Author's Website | Pages: 131 | Release Date: January 2010 | Publisher: Harlequin Books

"Heart of Darkness : The Darkest Angel" [Lords of the Underworld Series, Novella] by Gena Showalter

My Book Summary : A demon-killing angel named Lysander has just found the one thing that can destroy him .... a Harpy named Bianka. So, he stalks her then kidnaps her, thinking that he will kill her before she'll be able to damage him. However, things don't go as he plans .... and he himself begins to change in ways he has never felt before.

When he finds he can't bring himself to kill her .... he plans on trying to change her, just as Bianka decides to change him. Who will win? Or will they doom each other?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. It was a good addition to the Lords of the Underworld Series ... and I especially liked this new look on Angels! *evil grin* Lysander & Bianka do make a cute pair!

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : The Pleasure Slave | Catch A Mate | Playing With Fire | The Nymph King

Book Teaser :
"So what do you do for fun around here?" she asked.
"I destroy demons."
Like you, she finished for him. But he'd already said he had no intention of killing her, and she believed him----how could she not? That voice...
~ within Chapter 2

I've found a reason for me, To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new ...

Betrayal of the ones we love are the hardest things to get past, in "Catch A Mate" by Gena Showalter all the characters deal with their own or others betrayals on almost a daily basis. Catch A Mate is a business where people who believe their significant other is cheating on them and want to find out if their accusations are accurate or not. All that person would have to do is hire Catch a Mate and an employee (called the bait) would find that significant other at a club (or some place they normally hang out) and try picking them up but at the end they don't follow it through, and they record it all so the spouse will know the truth. Jillian has worked at Catch A Mate for over 6 years and would love to take it over to make it even better then it already is. Marcus just happened to purchase the business from Jillian's boss. Both have major trust issues ... but will they learn that even though they want to stay enemies, they'll never find anyone else they could trust more then each other?

2 out of 5 stars. Don't let the rating fool you ... it was a really good book ... cute. I mean I loved all of the characters! Main and secondary stories were awesome! However ... the ending ruined it for me .... it felt like Gena tried to wrap everything up to fast. Yet I don't know how it could have been written any better either. Which is sad since I liked it right up until there was about a quarter left in the book. =0(

I'll be reaching for the stars with you (honey) , Who cares if no one else believes

"The Pleasure Slave" by Gena Showalter is just what you would think by the title, except it comes with an other world twists to this paranormal romance. Julia is a shy antique dealer who comes across an old jewelry box that she seems drawn to at a flee market. After bringing it home and during the process of cleaning it she opens it to release Tristan. He is called the "Pleasure Slave" since to make any female who owns is box happy is his only talent. But when Julia treats him not as a slave but as an equal ..... passions ignite .... how will they be able to stay together???

I know I didn't explain it in the best way ... but you get the drift .... 3 out of 5 stars. If you've read other of Gena's books then you should know it's written like that of her "Lords of the Underworld" series, with two stories written around each other. I do like how she wrapped up everything though, good ending. =0)
