Hell Hounds are for Suckers… a Book Review

Sometimes you just want a short, funny and rather quirky book. Hell Hounds are for Suckers by Jessica McBrayer is the second book in the San Francisco Vampire Series. Vampire Hannah is running solo and feeling lonely when she comes upon a little puppy… who turns out to be a hell hound who refuses traditional dog food and barks fire!

We have a sexy demon who wants his dog back, his angry demon ex, a djinn and more and it all adds up to a terrific and fast paced paranormal fantasy romance. Magic, romance, rules and more… I found Hannah to be a treat, Diel the demon a delight and the characters around them hilarious. This book could stand alone but it IS the second in a series. I think my next step is to check out the first… Sucking in San Francisco.

Her Mad Hatter… a Book Review

NOTE: a more mature content book!

With one, really one and a half, explicit sexual scenes in this paranormal-fantasy romance Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall is a little out of my usual realm of romantic stories. BUT before you write it off for a chapter and a few pages towards the end I am actually suggesting this as a good fantasy ADULT read. With more than a taste of Wonderland and the Mad Hatter our Alice Hu is in for an adventure. This Hawaiian born cupcake baker has been infatuated with the story of the original Alice and since the age of 13 and her dramatic recovery from brain cancer, in love with the Mad Hatter (even more so after the new Johnny Depp). 

With a fairy godmother who is in charge of the “naughty” boys of the fantasy realm ( the bad 5 in fact who include the Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood and Hook of all people!) there are romances to be started. After all, who is more interesting than a bad boy? Given a year to match up her 5 boys Danika has her work cut out for her, but the chance meeting of Alice has her focused on the Mad Hatter. 

Alice Hu is the great-granddaughter of another Alice Hu, one she resembles almost perfectly… though she cannot like her. She is not like other women, infatuated with a story… in love with a character and a survivor of an extreme form of cancer. Found by Danika she is given 3 days in Wonderland to be the woman the Mad Hatter needs. 

Now there are a few twists and some amazing images to imagine. I don’t want to give away too much but would suggest that you pick up this book as long as you can handle the sexual content… the main character is very frank about how she feels and that is definitely something you have to be ok with. I personally am going to check out book #2 Gerard’s Beauty. Though I will probably do the same as I did with this book and gloss over the scenes containing sexual activity.
