Meljean Brook follows up her debut effort with Demon Moon, another smart take on the vampire mythology. Colin is a vampire without compare. Made from Nosferatu blood, he is powerful but cursed. He cannot drink from someone without driving them to madness. And he must drink to survive. When the bloodlust is upon him, drinking is inextricably intertwined with sex. Savitri is a women whose endless search for knowledge has no answer for Colin’s dilemna. They cannot resist each other but neither can survive together for long if Colin must drink from other women. Their personal dilemna is compounded by a hoard of nosferatus coming into the earthy realm to take possession. Recommended by Jane.
If you only know Susan Kay Law for her excellent western historicals, why not try her new contemporary “Just Sex?” Ellen is horrified to hear her husband (her caught in the act cheating husband) suggest during a marital counseling session that his affairs are nothing more than just sex and that she should probably try it herself to see. Ellen’s not quite ready to toss twenty years of marriage but she is willing to cautiously venture out into the dating world again. And maybe, find something better the second time around.
