For twenty years Daria has been chatting in a chat room online about her relationship with her husband. Normally that's nothing unusual, except Michael is a vampire.
Michael's not happy about her chatting sometimes, but being stuck on a farm miles from anywhere, with only a cow for a pet and her computer chats for entertainment, he lets her. At first, being with Michael was wonderful and different, but after twenty years, being held captive away from all life begans to pale on her and she wants to escape. One day she finds a way, thanks to the chat room.
Tammy Lee is smart, making the reader think that's it's another romance story about an ordinary couple, the wife liking to go online to chats and talk about her hubby, when suddenly she slams it to you about the vampire part. In my opinion, it could have been a little more erotic then it was, still it's a pretty good little paranormal.
I give this story 4 1/2 DRAGONS.

Sarah Harrison had too many years of life with her husband, Ed and when he fell into the river he had been fishing at while drinking she felt relief more then pain. And when Max McCloud becomes more than the Man from the Rialta in her daydreams, helping her to learn to drive the Winnebago her husband had bought for this trip and even more so, teaching her that love for a decent man is possible, even this time in her life. But when she meets his family and later as he goes home with her in her motorhome and meets her more disfunctable family she sees a wide gap that may make any possible relationship between them impossible to scale. But she's learns that as anew woman, different from the quiet, browbeaten one with Ed, she can bridge hers and Max's life into one full of love.
This Chippewa Publishing novella by Thomma Lyn Grindstaff was a pleasure to read on Labor Day. Not only is the woman and man older than the norm for romance novels and stories out there, but it was a sweet, touching story, not only full of love but hope too. Reading this, you'll cry, then cheer, but most of all, you'll fall in love as Sarah falls in love with Max.
I give this novella 5 DRAGONS.

Here is the cover for Forbidden Love: Bad Boys, coming out December 21, 2006. My erotic urban fantasy, "Soul Seduction" is included in the lineup. And you can preorder the first issue of the print journal now at http://www.honorharrington.net/shop/ . To access the Under the Moon side you will need to register. Once you're approved, yes, right now it's manual approval; you'll be able to see the UTM link on the upper left hand side. This is to help protect the publisher from 'oops, Johnny's 8- year-old clicked the adult link by mistake'This also helps keep their partners happy so though it takes a little longer to be able to buy the products you'll still be able to see and read about them on the main www.underthemoon.org site. Preordering means you will get it sent to you seven days earlier then the rest of the world in December. And it will be for sale at Amazon.com too.
Here is a blurb and an excerpt from Soul Seduction:
Unrepentant, cursed by the Fairy Queen of the Seelie Court to be imprisoned alone, forever in a human city park for trifling with her daughter, Branigan Darkman finds a chance for companionship in one human, Alicia Turner.
Alicia has always felt compelled to come to the city park her father has taken her once to play in. At first she doesn't know why, then she meets Bran and by her blood taken by him her soul becomes his.
Ten years flew by; a drop in the bucket of a fey’s life. Endless throngs of people came to and left the park. Each day at noon and each night at midnight, I sent out my call to Alicia, trying to draw her back. But it seemed her soul was stronger than my magic.
Finally though, I had won. Our connection had proved stronger than her soul and force of will.
Alicia stood next to the fairy ring at midnight, her head sunk down between her shoulders in broken submission.
“I’m here, Bran.” A wealth of pain colored her voice.
I magicked myself from my place and appeared next to her. “Alicia.”
The light of the full moon lit up the area. I saw she had grown older, a few lines painting her face. Tiredness filled her eyes, fading them from the sparkle that I remembered. \
I sniffed the air about her. “You’re still pure, I see. Good.”
“I tried to give myself to several guys that I dated, but something wouldn’t let me.” She reached up with her hand and touched the side of my face. “It was you I kept seeing and I just couldn’t do it. You cursed me as much as that fairy queen cursed you to this park.”
I lifted her up into my arms and stepped into the circle. We vanished from human sight and entered my home. My prison.
Once inside, I loosened my hold and her body slid slowly to the ground against mine. I molded her against me, letting her feel the hardness between my thighs. With a click of my fingers, the room lit up with a million tiny lights that glittered like stars. I moved away and stalked over to an extra-large bed that dominated the room. I sat down on the edge and with a smile, gestured to Alicia.
Her hands knotted together, she swept her eyes around the room, lighting momentarily on the armoire, the table with two chairs and the Roman bath.
I laughed, sounding bitter. “As you can see, I have all the amenities of home and comfort. Queen Anu did give me that, at least.”
I stood up and went over to Alicia, trying to draw her toward the bed. “Now, I have the companionship that I’ve been denied all these years.”
She stood in my arms and I bent my head, whispering into her ear. “Let me show you why they call me the Love Talker. Let’s talk about the sensuality of the flesh, mortal and immortal.” I kissed her. “Let’s talk about the eternal dance of passion. How I will relieve you of your innocence and show you such erotic things you can’t even begin to imagine.” I captured her mouth. Soft like velvet, I drank in her unique, sexy taste. I moaned.
It had been so long. . .
